I think I knew from the moment he came out from the beginning that I'd be a Yongha (is it now? hehehehe) fan. He's one of those types that I know I'd love for the rest of forever. Hahahahah. Also, I still can't pick whom to support for SJ (?) or JS (?) because they both seem so... rawr in a way. Hahahahah. But I'm going to be a Yongha fan for sure >_< and I really don't mind sharing. Heheheheheheh

Also, I'm curious as to who Blinky might be... Have I seen him already??

OWH.

Well I at least know who blinky is. Weeeeell, am going to watch the second episode now. Hehehehhe, been surfing around the net, trying to put it off cause I have only finished downloading up to episode 5, (the videos) and I REALLY REALLY don't want to be all addicted to the point that I can't sleep because I've already watched all the episodes that I have downloaded already. Hahahah

So last night, I started with episode 2, and now I'm up to episode 4. WAAAAAH.
Awwwwww, I love this. It's such a cute drama. I love the guys around the girl. They're just so adorable. Love Yongha the best out of all of them, though I am cheering for Lee Seon Jeon (?) to end up with her. Kekekekeke. Jaeshin is still adorable though. They're so so so so cool. I love them.

As for the plot. It's really interesting so far. Like especially now, what's going to happen now that Professor dude found out about her. She's probably not going to get kicked out or anything, but I can't wait to see how she'll get out of it.

Also, I'm starting to really hate Blinky and his crew of misfits. The older looking ones are such jerks, and Blinky is starting to real piss me off. Graaah

Also, is it just me... or is the brother, the real Kim something Shik, kind of cute? Hahahahahahaha
Gotta finish downloading the rest, seriously.

Period clothes are the only clothes when brocate and embroidery don't make a pansy out of a man. Yongha can wear the pinkiest shade of pink and still looks like a man.

And yes, frustration, lack of sleep and being hungry deprived me of my vision. Saying you can be beaten by a bare-chested guy is not exactly the safest way to start a conversation...

No. No, it's not. :roll

As for Yong Ha, I'm not using the clothes as a clue here. I'm using the fact that he seems too relaxed around women. The guy was in Cho Sun's room, for crying out loud. And he was at home and relaxed.
Would this hard-to-get, expensive lady allow a young lad like him in her room if he had naughty thoughts? Plus, that's not the conversation a young hotblooded male would have with a woman he sleeps with.

Nah, that was more of a talk between pals. Gossip and intrigue. If a young guy sleeps with a woman, even a hooker, he's not gonna discuss current events with her. Plus, he's too BL with Jaeshin to ignore.
And yes, he's still a man, even if he wears a tutu. But I never said he wasn't a man. I just said he is giving me gay man vibes. I think Jaeshin should keep his chest covered around him, s'all. Just sayin'...

If they're not in a "thing", however, can I please be beaten by both of them? I'm sure their techniques will vary a great deal. I'm thinking ropes and silk ribbons here... Oh damn... Gutter... So so deep...

Hmm, all is fine, but Chosun is no hooker. She's a gisaeng. The highest rank of them. They were in fact a companions to talk about politics, they were kind of advisors even. They were something more than geishas. We don't know if Chosun slept with him or not. She chose her clients personally, no one could force her to it, except for Minister of War, who practically forced her to have sex with him.

But true, Yongha is realaxed around women... but not around a woman's ghost, hehe...

And yes, Yongha and techniques... Yongha has those books... those books that one of them shocked young audience of fangirls at the very end of the draama, buahahaha!!

Oh, I know these ladies were the ones to talk with, but I'm saying that I don't feel a young man would talk with them, if he was "rearranging their linen".

As for the books, I'm pretty sure I know what he likes to read. And I'm pretty sure he'd like to put those in practice. With whom, well... Who knows... I volunteer though.

I'm at Episode 6 btw.
Teaching her how to use her palm then, huh? Her grasp needs to improve, isn't that right? Oh man... If the poor guy could see my mind right now...

Well, he is GOO YONG HA, but that doesn't mean he can't be GAY YEO RIM as well. Although from what I saw
He seems cheerful about Jaeshin having the hots for Dae Mul. Then again, he might just be happy cause he thinks Jaeshin is starting to like men. Aahhaaah. Sowwy. :P

Blinky must use eye drops every time the camera stops filming. Does he actually concentrate to keep them open or does it just happen? Cause that seems to be his default setting.

Why? Don't know that words can kill? We can defend ourselves just fine.
They will meet their demise by the strength of our words. Because killing of fangirls' illusions is equal to killing their will to continue.

Oh, I'm sorry, I'm b*tchin' today. And sorry for not being politically correct.

And yes, D-A is closely watched, closely. Ever since May, I would say, heh.

GAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

breath now, I honestly just loooooooove this drama! and Orion, in due time you will understand the awesomeness of " I Am Gu Yong Ha", but I bet you will still be in your "he is gay" line of thought, but we have Ethlenn to take care of the caressing your face to make you come into your senses.

PS, sexy voice belongs to SJ indeed.... Aaah... :wub:

Like what? Any examples? An opinion without the backing up evidences is not valid.
Plus, what is wrong with leaving few questions open for viewers' thinking? Ah, the part on thinking... Fangirls may not like it.

Just watched the earlier part of episode 8
Jaeshin hiccuping and looking all embarrassed may have just boosted him up. That was just so hilarious. Especially that scene when both Jaeshin and Seon Joon looked at Yoon Shik's bed, and then ended up looking at each other. KYAAAAAAAAAAAA~ and Yong Ha rolling around like an idiot in his bed?? Come on, can these three guys get any more adorable? SO SO SO CUTE!

Also, Blinky laughs weird. He is just weird. Like seriously weird. Not even cool weird, just scary weird. It's extremely freaky
More more more! Hehehehehhe, I am pretty slow at watching it though. Hahahaha.

But why is she so pissed? I mean, didn't the dude help her? I mean that's what I got with the 50 nyang thing that he gave her. So why is she so pissed? It makes no sense whatsoever to me...
But I still love it so so so much. It's getting really really good XD

well... it is about something called pride.
Basically, she feels that he is sorta rubbing in her nose that she is poor. And in addition that he considers that amount of money as nothing to her, pisses her off too. As she was almost getting sold as a bride for it. Plus, he was hiding the fact from her. Instead of giving it to her as a loan for example. And 50 nyang at that time was quite an amount of money. Uhm... Ethlenn should be able to explain it better ^^

Yes sireee sir.

Yongha is just pretty much awesome pants. Hehehehehe.
*shrugs* Is it really a bad thing? What SJ did? I mean... I really don't know why it's such a bad thing, you know? I mean... she was going to be sold to this pervy old man, if it were me, I'd take whatever rope I can hold on to, you know?
Edited: Woah I said way too many 'you know's in one paragraph... you know? Heheheheh

Hehe...
So I guess we cleared everything, maknae?

And to clear another historical fact:
Hwaseong Fortress, the one that Kimg Jeongjo talked sometimes that he wanted to build it for his father, prince Sado:
Official Website for Hwaseong
Wikipedia
And the main architect was... Jeong Yak-yong, our Professor^^

And about the currency:
1 unit of silver = 4 nyang
1 unit of fabric = 1 nyang
or just a book:
Weon Yu-han, Lee Kyong-hee, Money: traditional Korean society

Damn, I love this drama to bits.

"Like what? Any examples? An opinion without the backing up evidences is not valid.
Plus, what is wrong with leaving few questions open for viewers' thinking? Ah, the part on thinking... Fangirls may not like it." - Ethlenn

For some reason when I view this site at the office I am not able to quote or add spoiler tags.

I was going to point out examples in spoilers, but it looks like everyone just started and I didn't want to put out a spoiler about the ending and tempt people to read it.

And don't worry about it. SKKS is the type of drama that spoilers actually make me want to watch it all the more. Heeheeheeheeheehee.

Regarding Hwaseong. I did not read every word nor did I enlarge every photo. Therefore I would like to know if Prince Sado is entombed here since the King, his son, had him in mind when he decided to build this place.

My word... I thought they were rather forward in their attitudes between the sexes, but I then realised what England was like in the 1700s.

Life does tend to evolve on a grand scale no matter what the law says.

Yes, the remnants of Prince Sado are inside the Hwaseong complex, in a Yungneung tomb.

ok here's a reason why I felt everything was rushed...
There was no buildup and the king folded so easily and everything went too well. What happened to the President...did he decide not to say anything about her being a female? I mean he did "act like a human" in order to protect Cho Sun and in doing so probably changed a bit and decided not to tell on Daemul (or Cho Sun told him not to), however that is a very rapid character change (literally 5 minutes worth of the entire series). I think it should have been more gradual.

The Minister of War also knew, did he decide not to say anything after being sent to prison?

Here's something that doesn't really tie out to me either:

With regards to the wedding. So they married and are now both teachers at Sungkyunkwan... ok...and it is likely that she is still hiding the fact that she's female. How does this play out? Did no one at Sungkyunkwan attend their wedding? No one knows that they are married? Not sure how that works out.

It all just felt very anticlimactic for me. Boom one second she's in deep trouble the next second everyone is happy. I think it needed another episode for more character development (the President, for example).

Also I would have liked to see what became of all the other characters.

What happened to the Norons? It seems as though nothing has changed at all within the world.

However, It is possible that she isn't hiding the fact that she is a female though...considering the new Hung Byuk So (sp?) is a female and Moon Jae Shin (sp?) made a statement on how the new students at Sungkyunkwan need to brush up on their writing...so maybe they admit females now. This would change everything I said above and make a lot more sense I suppose.

Around the middle of episode 11
I just can't stop laughing. It's just... it's just so so so so so so cute! SJ is the cutest thing on the planet. Like so so so so so so cute. The way he kept looking at her lips? You know that part where he was telling her to always stay by his side, in real life the only missing from that was a kiss, and I thought so and he looked at her lips, and I was just laughing out loud because that was just so hilarious how he was thinking the same thing... Then the request to never ever wear woman's clothes again? WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, then the whole going out of the library going, he's a roommate. Just a roommate. I am in love with the man. Just in love. Hahahahaha XD
Hehehehehhe XD

Edited:
And now they're fighting because of they're sleeping arrangements. AND then she starts thinking by holding her lips, and here I am just looking at these two adorable men and I'm just laughing and laughing and laughing and that was just one of the best scenes ever. So hilarious, super duper duper fun.
I haven't even finished watching this and already I can't wait to watch it again.

@JiveTalkingRobot
I dont understand why you think the way the King acted was solved too easily. Were you not watching the scene where SJ gave his honest opinions about what he felt about the King??!!! And literally slapped the king's face?! If the King had acted differently, that would just make him a bad king, one who acted on his OWN behalf, and not to build a new Joseon as he initially had told the Jeoseon F4.

As for the president. To somewhat degree, I agree with you that the shift of character can seem abrupt. But we have been told over and over again about how madly in love he is with Chosun. So when he found out that Yoonhe was in fact a GIRL (which made her no longer a love rival), and he found out that his own FATHER had been an **** to the girl he loved, it is no wonder that he had a change of heart. Plus, what benefits would he have from telling everyone that Yoonhe was a girl? He already lost everything, including his presidency and respect/fear from his fellow SKKS. I mean, just by using common sense, it sorta makes sense that he would shut up about Yoonhe... Or?

And the minister of war was just going to use the fact that Yoonhe was a female AGAINST the king if he presented the GDJS to treat the Norons, but since the King didn't do so, what was the use of him telling???? Besides, I think the king and his subordinates has ways of silencing the minister of war anyway....

What else? as for Yoonhe being a professor at SKKS and their marriage. People are aware that YoonShik had a sister, so SJ marrying his best friend's sister, doesnt sound all that odd or?! IF it is not known that Yoonhe was pretending to be Yoonshik.

And that she is a professor at SKKS, it is left open if the students knew that she is a female or not. I had the feeling that they knew she was a female just by the way the students were stalking her.

As for the Norons, SJ's father, who is the leader has started to support the King about the move of the Capital. So, in all, I guess the norons have less power. But things doesnt change overnight, so this new society that the King wanted to build, is probably just slooowly becoming real.

Last remark. THIS IS A FUSION DRAMA, not everything will make sense. and you cannot be obsessed with small details like a wedding ceremony. I mean, c'mon...

If you have seen other dramas, the norm is always to shift the story like 1-3 years later after the loved ones are separated, then they meet again by chance, and we get an open ending which is most likely happy.
And that is the end of my 2 cents on this issue.

Ethlenn, do you have more to add? I think I might have missed out on a couple of other things... :mrgreen:

@Jana:

I ALSO DIED DURING EPISODE 11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DIED!!! :faint: :faint: :faint:
