    I like Moon Geun Young since seeing her in My Little Bride, then in Cinderella’s sister, then Painter of the Wind. I also loved her in Innocent Steps and in Love me Not….However, I don’t know how she chooses the drama she’ll appear on but these last three dramas (Mary Stayed out All night, Cheongdamdong Alice and Goddess of Fire) have all been misses for her. They haven’t been really showcasing her talent…and the scripts have been poorly written. She missed out on good roles such as the one played by her friends Shin Se Kyung (When a Man Loves) and Moon Chaewon (Good Doctor). She could have done a better job than Shin Se Kyung in When a Man Loves and she could have equally done a good job like Moon Chaewon. Tsk Tsk Tsk if she keeps up on with these kind of choices in drama, I don’t know how her popularity will last. She needs a good drama and she needs it NOW.

    i wonder why this rating’s so bad. i enjoying this drama so well as i enjoying d other drama at same time airing(mon-tues drama). i love how the sw use ‘ceramics’ as d main theme. n i love jungyi, prince kwanghee, taedo, even d antagonist one.
    every ep success makes me curious~ overall, this recommmended drama for u.

    I wanna watch episode 18 cuz it looks intense and pretty good. BTW, is there any Korean drama more popular than Boys Over Flowers? I was impressed with the high ratings unlike GOF.

    Since this drama is historical, I’ll take it as face value and enjoy it.

    I, personally, like MGY’s versatility when trying different roles. She challenges herself and her ability by not becoming pigeon-holed into one character type. BRAVO to you MGY! As Jung Yi, she’s passionate and eager to fulfill her innate (predestined) desire of becoming a potter. It’s not being selfish or arrogant to fulfill one’s inner calling. In this world there are leaders and followers. Some folks calling is stronger than others because they listen to it; while some other folks just plain settle for doing nothing exceptionally well. It’s obvious and proves that Jung Yi was truly a leader, a forerunner as the first female potter of her era. That alone created jealousy and misunderstandings then and even on this thread to date (though I’m not surprised). I’m even more convinced that only true leaders can understand another true leader’s pursuit of bringing their dreams into fruition. While followers, who usually don’t understand the drive to see the vision come to pass do nothing except complain, bad mouth and question the motives of the driven few. Now, I can understand if its an act that’s detrimental to the health and wellbeing of a society, but condemnation because she wanted to become a potter??!! Anyway…she succeeded, even if she was taken by force and taken to another country…she succeeded and is remembered in history for her contribution. BRAVO!!!

    Sam Says:

    even tho MGY is good actress, i feel bad some people criticize & say her acting in GOF is not good. They think she not suited for this role and they don’t like how she looks. On other hand, even tho Kim Bum’s acting is just OK in a saeguk drama, so many people talk positive about him, and they think his role as Tae Do really suits him. Unfortunately, Korean actresses are scrutinized more harshly than actors, when judged about acting skills.

    @Sam-507: Very well said! I, to this day don’t understand how an actor/actress in kdramas can get scrutinized by their viewing audience to the point of getting ousted out of the entertainment industry. That’s so sad.

    One good thing that I can say about the peoples views towards the actors roles in movies or dramas here in the U.S. is that when its fiction, its viewed as fiction. Regardless of how mean, cruel or poker-faced the role…it’s only a role. The person acting out the role play is looked upon as doing their job…they’re getting paid to work; that’s it and all. If a movie or drama is considered to be not so good or a poor box office draw, no one’s career is placed on the line because of it. The actors just move on to the next project and their fans look for the next gig that will make their favorite actors shine.

    natalia Says:

    KB, historical drama is not ur thing, but ur acting is good in modern dramas/movies. i luv padam padam, that winter wind blows, the gifted hands. don’t worry about haters cuz most people know you CAN act.

  12. 512
    sam Says:

    @usa-mary
    Thank you. For Kdramas, some folks don’t like the actor/actress bcuz they don’t like the character they play. Asian audience favor male stars over females, that’s why a lot of the actors are more famous than the actresses. They don’t get “ousted” from entertainment industry, but actresses get judged more harshly.
    @natalia
    I agree with your comment about KB. Just to let you know, on bright side, everyone knows he’s a good singer. As matter of fact, he’s better at singing than acting, so he’s got talent.

  13. 513
    sam Says:

    @usa-mary
    for another example, even tho bae suzy and lee seung gi are leading actors & won a lot of awards, some folks still think they are bad actors. I don’t get why, but I feel bad for these two.

    Thanks! for GOF, I wonda why there no preview for Ep 19. just gonna wait ’til next Monday.

  15. 515
    Sam Says:

    @natalia
    Not a problem. to be honest, I’m not really a fan of KB, but I was just giving an example to support my statement in comment 507. No matter if I like or don’t a celebrity, i still give credit for their talent…just to be fair.

  16. 516

    Ep 19 preview just came out on Facebook. Looks good, can’t wait 2 watch!

    usa-mary Says:

    @sam-512/513: I’ve observed the bias in kdramaland first hand and its not pretty! Even though I find it unjust and unwarranted how an actor’s livelihood can be effected by the viewers criticism of a mere role; its how the S.K. entertainment industry was set up by its $nvestors. (I intentionally placed a dollar sign to represent the letter I). I’ve also noticed how the industry utilizes other venues to ensure the actors livelihood during their acting hiatus which is a huge plus…i.e. modeling, singing/song writing, commercials, movies, etc. until the savage (audience) beast is soothed. Then, they slowly make their return to the screen. I just hope the actors toughen their skin more and live their lives by not taking it personally which I imagine can be daunting at times! Its no wonder why a lot of them secretly go to therapists, and I don’t fault them for that.

    I came across an old Estonian Proverb or adage that goes…One woman never praises another! Male favoritism is society driven and reinforced. So, we women somewhat grin and bear it in varying degrees.

  18. 518
    sam Says:

    @usa-mary
    You made very good points, but I already know about the procedures that are prevalent in the Korean entertainment world. speaking of male favoritisim, there’s somethin’ else I wanna mention. altho I’m not really a fan of Kim Bum, I admit for a supporting actor, his level of popularity is quite impressive. Unlike the Korean (leading) actresses, he is famous around the world and has international fans ioutside of Asia such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, South American countries, the Arab world, and a few European countries too. It’s unfair to the talented women, but I still support the actresses.

  19. 519
    sam Says:

    @usa-mary
    Despite sexism & male favorism in society, kb still made it all this way bcuz of luck, talent, hard work, good singing skills, & improvement in acting,

  20. 520
    sam Says:

    Instead of crammin’ everything together, I rather post separate comments. I know that everyone has their own biases, personal opinions & preferences about celebrities, but the audience should still give credit to their talents even if they don’t like or (even hate) a celebrity.

  21. 521
    Sam Says:

    @usa-Mary
    Since the new school year is starting soon, everyone is gonna be very busy. I won’t have time to watch GOF anymore. we’ve had an interestin’ discussion, but I’m gonna have to stop posting comments and leave this thread bcuz of priorities in life.

  22. 522
    usa-mary Says:

    @sam-518: That’s good. I mentioned S.K.’s entertainment industry in general retrospective terms, only. My speculative views wasn’t intended to come across as a FYI or a 101 class course. I work at staying clear of pigeon-holed and tunnel-vision views regardless of gender.

    @519/520: I commend all those who make it in any industry despite the drawbacks and challenges.

    @521: Cheers! Thank you for sharing.

    usa-mary Says:

    This drama is about more than pottery…its historical! One doesn’t have to be Korean or Asian to enjoy period or era dramas. Yet, I dare say, one must have an interest in historical reenactments, of which I do. If it hadn’t been for the creative, innovative invention of pottery for cooking and eating, we’d still be eating with our hands off of huge leaves!

    Yes, I will and did go there:

    @John k-523: By the way…ratings on one hand has nothing to do with enjoyment! On the other hand…John k, your nasty metaphor has a lot to do with you!

    imhel Says:

    Alas, this drama has sunk into the bottom of the ratings. Again, no matter how good the actors are, if they don’t have a good script to work with, their acting is never going to soar and the drama is not going to fly.
    MGY’s acting here is not used to the fullest, neither is Lee Sang Yoong and Kim Bum’s acting.
    And the storyline gets so boring because the dialogues just go around and around and is not even fast-paced….therefore it’s saturated with useless dialogues.
    Very unfortunate for MGY…hopefully she’ll be more shrewd, discerning and astute in her choice of dramas next time.

    robyn Says:

    I feel sorry that people say MGY’s acting in this drama is not good. They also said she not suited for this role. On bright side, everyone likes Kim Bum’s endearing character because tae do is the saving grace of this drama. even tho he’s the supporting actor, he outshines the leading actor lee sang yoon.

    Carmen Says:

    I HAVE TO COMMENT THIS BECAUSE IS DRIVING ME CRAZY, “HOW COME THIS KING IN THIS DRAMA IS SO DUMMMM, YES DUMMM, BECAUSE HE LETS HIS WIFE, SON, AND THOSE PEOPLE AROUND HIM DO WHAT THEY WANT FROM HIM, HE IS THE KING BUT DO NOT ACT LIKE HE SHOULD BE, I HAVE SEEN OTHER HISTORY DRAMAS AND THE KING ALWAYS HAVE THE POWER AND DO NOT TRUST EVERYBODY ARROUND HIM, BUT THIS ONE IS SO STUPED THAT HE BELEIVE ALL COMMENTS THAT WIFE AND THE BAD SON SAID ALWAYS….BUT IT IS A DRAMA! I HOPE NO KING WAS LIKE HIM.

    hayley Says:

    MGY’s a good actress, but I’m disappointed with her character jung yi. sorry that people are bashing on MGY for her portrayal in this drama. lee sang yoon’s acting is OK, but prince gwanghae is not that cool. ive gotta luv tae do and his devotion to jung yi. from many online comments ive seen, most people say kim bum is “not great, but still a pretty good actor”. i’ve never heard nasty or harsh criticism about him.

    Marie Says:

    Seriously! KB is not a gay. He is straight man. Better I just ignored it! Goddess of Fire, Jungyi still the Best for me! I will watch till the end! MGY, KB, LKS, PGH, LSY and the rest actors doing good job for their character.

    Will jung yi and prince gwang hae end up together?… i hope so…

  46. 546
    Jackie Says:

    I wonder when will Kim Bum get the main leading role for his dramas? So many people want him to be the leading actor. In GOF, Kim Bum outshines lee sang yoon because MGY has better chemistry with KB and the audience likes his character tae do. On the bright side, KB is still one of the most popular Korean actors around Asia and he is famous around the world. Check out his fan made Facebook accounts from foreign countries in South America, Turkey, Mexico, and the Arab World. He’s got so many followers!

    theworstme Says:

    At first, this drama is great.. i thought it would be great and interesting like Dongyi , horse doctor and Moon embracing the sun… but later in the last few episodes.. the story started to became dull and not interesting.. maybe the writer should think a better way to create good story.. i thought she will be kidnap to Japan during a war, and will demonstrate the superiority of Joseon potters. – i’m still waiting for this but story is so slow and few episodes to go. i hope the last 8 episodes will not disappoint me. Anyway, the actors and actresses were so good. MGY !!!!
