    you have to give it to jang geun suk the things he did for his role in the first 6 episodes. no more ‘easy does it’. great!

    anna Says:

    In korean sageuk we have the usual palace intrigue of the palace. In this we have palace one and the common people one. I’m with the common people who always been treated unfairly. Even today we seem to think rich and wealthy hero is much better than the ordinary/poor hero. The world is not fair as they were shown in this drama.

    Jackpot Says:

    The focus of this story is a prince who must accept his fate as a poor farmer. Until she understands that she is dumped by her brother, she immediately wanted to avenge him. The prince is Dae-gil (Jang Keun Suk) and his brother were greedy throne, Jo Yeong (Yeo Jin-goo). They are the essence of the fight this fight. This drama became prime drama JKS after an absence of three years.

    @Vampire Detective #54: it’s either you are on the wrong page or you’re purposely hinting that we watch that series.

  5. 55
    tigerb Says:

    the way i understand the last 7 episodes based on the english subs (which may or may not be wrong) i’ve watched, dae gil is not a prince as he is not the king’s son, although his mother is the king’s concubine after he was conceived 2 or 3 months before she came to the palace. yeoning is a prince, as he is the king’s son although his mother is a concubine, unlike his half-brother (the crown prince) who is the son of the king and queen (banished from the palace). dae gil and yeoning are half brothers.

    tigerb Says:

    up to ep 8, three people want to kill the king. was he really that bad? he is depicted to be very sharp, he seems to know everyone’s vibes, including those wanting to get rid of him. am waiting for more gambling scenes, but the story flow does not warrant such. it’s more on revenge, avenge, let’s see what happens next.

  7. 57
    tigerb Says:

    at ep. 10, baek dae gil is now standing on his own two feet. future episodes should show us how he’s going to fight yi in jwa, which brings me to the question: are baek dae gil and yin in jwa actual historical people?

  8. 58
    anna Says:

    this drama is base on history and fiction. prince yeongsu is suppose to be king sukjong and lady choi first child but he die at a young age (base on history). the fiction is prince yeongsu (dae gil) did not die but was taken out of the palace to protect him from the soron faction who at the time back up hui bin (jang ok jung) and her young prince (crown prince yoon). by the time lady choi had her second child (prince yeongni) hui bin had already lost the king favor. ya in hwa is in fact exist in history, he is one of the two malitary leaders who was elected by the soron rebel faction. if you interested to find out more please go to http://www.theeelsfamily.com/

    ep. 12: the half siblings working together. let’s see how much they can accomplish.

  11. 61
    anna Says:

    @tigerb actually they are brothers not half siblings. they from the same father and mother. daegil is the king’s son. if you read jks latest interview he discuss about his character. that daegil is the forgotten prince who was rise as a commoner.

  12. 62
    tigerb Says:

    @anna: i have not read jks interview and synopsis above states that dae gil is a prince. i may have misunderstood what i watched because i read the english subs and do not understand the korean language. like i commented before, the king knew that his concubine was married when she came into the palace, yet snatched her from the husband. the king knew later that yi in jwa orchestrated and manipulated how he met the water maid and fell for her, how he met the gambler husband who is the biological father of dae gil, etc. etc. that’s why she told the concubine to better stop her antics, and she did because it was just easy to get rid of her. when dae gil was born in the palace, everyone referred to him as a prince because they thought he is the king’s son, but there was the doubt how come he was born in 6 months and not 9 months, so they spread the rumor that the baby was premature. then the concubine was put into a corner, so she had to stage that the baby died and asked help from dam seo’s father to get a dead baby and dae gil was given to his real father. the king did not show much concern that the baby ‘died’, he was concerned that the concubine was unhappy. if the baby was really his, why was his stance for the incident looked like it was just an ordinary happening, because he can have as many kids as he want? or because he knew that the baby was not his. i commented the king is so sharp, he knows what’s going on around him, including the plots against him, etc. when the king met dae gil as an adult, he was surprised, because that baby was supposed to be dead, gave him a sword to reward dae gil for deflecting the arrows. if dae gil were really his son, won’t he do something about the long lost prince? in the last episode, the subs introduced the word ‘brother’. i am waiting how the future episodes develop, if my theory above is right or wrong. the thing is, most historical dramas are based on some facts in history, but for the writer’s purpose, some facts are embellished, or twisted, invented, etc, etc. to present a believable story.

    wow, it’s really Daebak
    i can’t stop watching this. Only eps 12 can stop me because no more next episodes >.<
    please help me out of this curiosity for next episodes

    tigerb Says:

    @blank #63: eps. 13 & 14 are out.

    CoolBeans Says:

    The repetitive fights against In Jwa makes this storyline narrow and predictable. The female counterparts pop in and out of the storyline without explanation. They just show up and make it confusing to determine which one, if any, will be paired off with the two male leads. There are positives in this. Casting is great. The leads are perfect. Choi Min Soo playing the king is perfect! His strength and charisma resonates even when he only has a few lines each week.He is reason enough to watch the drama. The background music OSTs are on the level of Six Flying Dragons. I wouln’t watch if it was 50 episodes. Definitely, worth watching all 24 episodes for Choi Min Soo and the male leads.

    Someone pls help. Is daegil the king’s son or not? The king believes him to be his son or not?

  19. 69
    Ain Says:

    3 reason why i keep going to watch this drama : 1. Whos the villain? The King (the person who steal other’s wife with a dirty trick in gambling game), lee in jwa (the person who want to make a better life for the people in Joseon with whatever effort (wrong or right way) or all of them are villain. 2. who is the final couple of baek dae gil? dam seo (his immature first love that have a connection with his father dead) or sul im (the girl who help him when baek dae gil became a slave), but i am pretty sure one of the girl will die. 3. When baek dae gil knows that he is a son of sookbin coi who leave him when his was child and have a good life in the palace,, how the drama will showing baek dae gil feeling about his mother = really miss her or really hate her. And the last i hope baek dae gil is a son of baek man geum not premature son of the king because when baek dae gil was child, the king tried to kill him. Cant wait the next episode

  20. 70
    tigerb Says:

    watch early part of ep. 15 when yeoning asked his mother about baek dae gil as the mother told the truth.

  21. 71
    tigerb Says:

    yi in jwa is really something, and poor baek dae gil can’t think clearly with yij lies and manipulations. yij told bdg that the king is bdg’s father. now that he is prison, he’s saying thaek man geum, bdg’s father, is still alive, throwing off his last card so he can get out of prison. bdg is being played by yij big time.

  22. 72
    tigerb Says:

    baek man geum, not thaek man geum…..

  23. 73
    Ain Says:

    But i still hope that baek man geum is the real father of baek dae gil,,, cause the whole ep i was watched there is no clue of who is the real father,, the king even try to kill baek dae gill and baek man geum still confuse about who’s baby that,, for the last ep when dae gil met sukbin, i think this scene less emotional than i’ve expected “should be dae gil showed his anger to sukbin choi (why you leave me and my father and now you live in the palace with the king),,, and i think le in jwa right about explain what happen in the past to dae gil,, that’s reality sukbin choi leave his father whenever baek man geum win the last gambling,, and the fact sukbin choi leave dae gil to,,

  24. 74
    tigerb Says:

    guess dam seo’s role has to die as there would be no purpose for her if she cannot kill kij. too bad she got persuaded by jeong and changed heart. that’s that for her. i wonder what baek man geum told dae gil that he too seems to have a change of heart to kill kij. the last scene of kij killing the young innocent prince (if not a dream or ‘if’ sequence) would be the last straw for the king, the crown prince and yeoning, but would be a start for a rebellion?

  25. 75
    tigerb Says:

    in that episode where dam seo died, i thought moo myung was also killed by kim chae gun. how come he’s alive and was with kij to kill the young prince? did i miss an episode?

  26. 76
    tigerb Says:

    ep. 20: of course the king could not kill yeoning because history recorded that the king died shortly and yeoning became king. at ep. 19, the old king was so shrewd: he told bdg to respect the older brother/younger brother relationship as it’s how the world follows, but he told yeoning not to be an enemy nor a friend to bdg. why, a king cannot have his half brother as his friend because he himself probably killed his relatives to rise to the throne?

  27. 77
    tigerb Says:

    ep. 21: yeoning killed his brother? the king was dying anyway, but yeoning accelerated the death by giving food, not poisoned, but contra the king’s illness? next episode, please!

    dheey Says:

    can’t say anything about this drama.. just one word.. DAEBAK…
    the story is really DAEBAK…

  29. 79
    Liz Says:

    I was searching for historical information, Baek Dae Gil was a lost Prince , and they can not tell when he died. After he was born or else???. This story is giving us the benefit of doubt. I was thinking, what about if Prince Yeoning died and later replaced by Baek Dae Gil… and kept the name of Prince Yeoning, in the real story of Korea.?????

  30. 80
    tigerb Says:

    @Liz: there’s a disclaimer i read that this drama is fiction based on some historical facts. i googled baek dae gil but i did not find anything linked to real history. so i take this drama as fiction. it’s interesting as it is. am waiting how the last two episodes justify the title ‘jackpot’.

  31. 81
    tigerb Says:

    it’s lonely at the top. the young king defies his father’s instruction about baek dae gil, after all he has proven that his half brother is not interested to be king. but what went around, came around. the young king killed his brother, so his son was killed. the title is ‘jackpot’ because bdg is a gambler? well, he gambled his life a few times. it’s still a good watch, with the predictable politics.
