I also mourn how much Chungjo's character was wasted since she could have been such a good foil to Yeowol's character; a jaded noblewoman living as a giseng vs. I guess I just never see you delete first comments. She takes the shot in the shoulder. Why kill her now when you can set up a Wile E. He struggles to live his life as a human and also falls in love. Thus, the Gu Family Book might not actually exist, and there might not be a way to turn into a human. I see what you all mean now.
They don't get to come back? The hair didn't bother me, but it was his acting, his portrayal of Wol-ryung that captured my heart. People make my day by saying thank you. He accused her father of treason, bcos he said her father didn't treat her well. I've enjoyed this drama and even been touched by some it mostly the initial love story of mom and dad. And then his secret agent steps into the room.
Are gumihos and half-gumihos not allowed to find happiness if they fall in love with a human? I'm so glad you chose to continue on recapping this series. The Japanese emissary steps out from behind his men, and Lee Soon-shin tells him they have three days to clear out and return to their country before he starts killing every last one of them. Is it just me or does it feel like the writer started out with some unique and original ideas and just let everything unravel? He passes over the gun. Lee Yoobi ran away with the character too. Many times over the course of this run I have quit watching in favor of reading the recap thanks for taking the punishment for the rest of us. If there is ever a sequel to this drama, and the its ending in our century is a possible hint for that, I will not watch it until all the episodes are out and I can read the comments on the last one; meeting again under the crescent moon and peach blossom tree our century is warning about more tragedy, more suffering, and no redemption.
It was a pretty intense episode, but filler. I am curious about many things, and I mostly want to see how things are resolved, and how many bows will be neatly tied, and how many plot points will be left opened or unresolved. The boys get ready to move her, when Jo Gwan-woong suddenly declares that no one can leave. Ohmygah, why do we keep letting this guy threaten loved ones to get people to do his bidding? Uh, if he could just be arrested for these crimes, then why have we let him run around for twenty-four episodes? I would also say that I have not been the only one to do that, on this site. His wounds start to take their toll, and he falls to his knees. Argh, what could have been.
The beginning of the show was exceptionally well played out, just wish they kept the same momentum. I have the sinking feeling that it may be Yeo-wool who got shot, as per the premonition that the monk told of ages ago: Kang-chi can heal himself like nothing, Lee Soon-shin. I don't know why I'm still watching, but frankly, this is one case where the casting would have been better if the actresses switched roles though of course idol casting means that would not happen. The episodes 3-12 were good too, but it wasn't until Wol-ryung returned in episode 13 that things really started cooking again for me. I actually got burned bad not too long ago and so I'm far more cautious now than I used to be. Hope you do give it some thought! In any case I started to watch this- got up to the fakeout and just sort of lost interest. Tae-seo finds him there, still numb and not knowing what to do.
I invite disaster though by preferring dark er dramas that naturally come with a higher risk of misery. You love him, fear him, love him again, pity him and then miss him. So spending an entire episode to set up her kidnapping and rescue seemed like wasting the precious few minutes of story time we have left on something that had a foregone conclusion. I am thinking that the ending was a fake out. The story after the first half is just a mess. I wish the writer could've went further with obstacles to break them up, especially since one of them is human and the other half beast, but nope. There isn't even an overarching story between these mini rescues; just more of the same.
Seo Hwa came back after 20 years just to be as useless as ever? Yeah, I'm a little disappointed by this episode since we only have 1 left. Is it really 24 is the last episode? Many dramas started with a bang and went down hill from midway through. I very often come back and read my and others' comments, and I am reminded of what I have learned, and of why I appreciate Kdramas. I must use this power responsibly! It was just running the guys around for no reason. I always wondered what that word meant.
I have the sinking feeling that it may be Yeo-wool who got shot instead, as per the premonition that the monk told of ages ago: Kang-chi can heal himself like nothing, Lee Soon-shin. At least the soundtrack is nice, the composers of the background score - especially in the early part of the show - deserve credit for making this show less of a drag thanks to the nice musical cues. Choi Jin-hyuk's portrayal of Wol-ryung was dead on; he could interact with anyone and make the scene pop. We started in a good place, with an epic backstory and a great beginning for a hero. Now that he is gone, a lot of the magic is gone as well.
As girlfriday said, they could have done so much with this episode but didn't. Likewise, you'll almost never hear it being used between friends unless as a joke or people who get along with each other but aren't married or something. Choi Kang Chi is the son of Gu Wol Ryung, the guardian spirit of Jiri Mountain, and Seo Hwa, his human mother. I feel that it would be a lot of plotting on my part to act in such a manner to try and get the sympathy of beanies, many of whom or better yet most of whom I will never meet. He is drowning into this drama, seems far away from his true character, but he said he is not regret it. The blogger wrote an exhaustive and very informative piece, and I skimmed through it, planning on coming back to read it many times over, later and any time I would need to come back to it to understand a kinship term used in a drama, such as how the older brother's wife is called, etc.
