    Nadege Says:

    Was the relationship between the king & joj love as “joj live in love” portrays or was it sort of business as “dong yi” portray?

    According to history she harmed her son (crown prince) moments before she was to be poisoned!!! Due to that her son was sterile & ill through out his 4 year reign. When he died, Dong yi’s son succeeded him & reign for 52years. If that is true about her harming her son then I am more apt to believe her machinations in “dong yi” then “joj live in love”. But I am still confuse about the king’s love for her and/or dong yi. Did he love both or one of them (if so which one)

    me Says:

    The way it was portrayed, it was very different from Dong Yi. The same people, same era, events – but twisted completely. Kind of strange since it involves real history with real people in it. The king Suk Joong, the way Yoo Ah In delievered it, he was quite a mean, scheming, sly and unsavory character altogether. While in Dong Yi the king, played by Jin Hee I think, was quite a nice, patient, wise and righteous even…Ok Jung is portrayed as a kind-hearted but went wrong due to her love and devotion to the king – so it’s the king who is the devil here, not Ok Jung. And I have to say Ah In did it quite well, playing the devil, he did look despicable, downright mean.
    Since it involves real history with real people in it…don’t anyone object to this kind of twisting – could be called slander? – especially if there are descendants of those very people involved…? Strange.

    Just finished watching this drama and I really thoroughly enjoyed it! One of the best dramas I have watched so far. The cast was really good and I especially love the 3 main characters Kim Tae Hee, Yoo Ah In and Hong Soo Hyun. Really great cast! The write must be congratulated – I love the plots and twist and the so so many OMG moments – just marvelling the way the story twist and changes. Absolutely brilliant. Watching these kind of dramas, I do keep in mind that historically, some facts may not be the truth as most dramas are romanticised and dramatised. All these great pursuit of love in these kind of dramas are sometimes in reality, far from it. Kings have so many wives and concubines. So, take it with a pinch of salt and enjoy the dramas! Highly recommended drama!

    […] if I may say. Just look at his previous work such as Sungkyungkwan Scandal, Fashion King, Jang Ok Jung. There is also Go Kyung Pyo (@kopular) which left good impression on me after Flower Boy Next […]
