    rm018 (#554)
    although the actors are great actors in themselves, the story/script is not well written…the story has gotten to be boring and draggy. you can probably watch it but you can fast forward on most of the scenes since most of them are overly repititious, you can even skip some of the episodes…..that explains the low ratings

  6. 556
    lovetheheirs Says:

    @imhel #555
    Awww. I’ll get bore with that if I will just keep on fast forward most of the scenes.
    I love the two main lead hope the drama will get better and could bring back a good rating

    Hankk Says:

    I had my doubts about the length of this drama from the beginning.
    Drama-wise, it is a bit long, and not really good written indeed.
    But the educative element is very well done. Specially for someone like me, in far away Europe, who’se only means of learning about Korea’s culture is by watching drama and internet-research.

    One thing comes to mind in all of this: The Korean Celadon ceramics are/were highly praised, because in comparisation with Chinese and Japanese, it was more “simple”,”pure” and “basic”, more in line with Buddhism. That is highlighted many times in this drama, without using words.

    And that is exact the reason why I think no one else as Moon Geun Young should have played this role.
    Lot’s of Korean actresses, ( and actresses of other countries ) can be more sparkling and shiny at a certain moment.
    But I have a weakness for the “simple”,” pure” and “basic” way of acting that Moon Geun Young does.
    And because of that, I don’t mind in fact , if it is 32 episodes.

  9. 559
    Sam Says:

    @Hankk
    That is a sweet compliment. Unlike you, other people are giving Moon Geun Young hate and criticism. They said her acting in this drama is not good. They don’t like the way she looks and they think she is NOT fit to play this role. On the other hand, you give her praise because she is a good actress. That was nice of you.

  10. 560
    Hankk Says:

    I seldom post here, but I do post more in the forum that was started after Dramacrazy and it’s forums ended a few months ago.
    ( See link below )
    You get to know your people better, and there is a filter for people who only want to post in rude language because that gives them a kick.
    I have learned it is no use to try to convince somebody about the value of somebody or something.

    MGY I saw first in her early movies, Innocent Steps and My Little Bride.
    I watched Korean movies in 2009, because a forumbuddy from a Canadian forum lived there in that year, and spoke about.
    Just out of curiosity.

    Good looking actresses and actors ! Actresses and actors are most of the time goodlooking, in every country: Comes with the job.
    But many Koreans, male or female, can really act !
    And that does not come automatically with the job, examples enough !
    I found MGY a cute young actress, that was all.

    But with Painter Of The Wind and Cinderella’s Sister I was convinced she was an absolute top-actress, one of the best in the world, not only Korea.
    ( Both drama’s were not the highest in rankings: Who cares ?)

    In my very short personal list of Best Actresses are: Jennifer Ehle, Megan Follows and Moon Geun Young.
    The ones that are often below the radar of the masses, not in the headlines or in the gossips.
    Just craftswomen that do their job for 100 %. Nothing more but certainly nothing less.

    Sam Says:

    @Hankk
    I agree that moon geun young is one of the best actresses in Korea and Asia, but she is NOT one of the best in the world. She’s only famous around Asia, but she’s not well known in other continents around the world.

    For Kdramas, her acting was good in Cinderella’s Sister and Painter of the Wind. However her acting is NOT that good for Cheongdamdong Alice and Goddess of Fire.

  12. 562
    Sam Says:

    @Hankk
    You said that most Korean actors and actresses can act, but it’s actually half and half because there are some people who cannot act.

    Unfortunately, Korean actresses get criticized more harshly than actors because of SEXISM. People who watch Korean dramas are mostly women and they favor the actors. This is why most K-actors are MORE FAMOUS than actresses. The men have fan meeting tours around Asia, but so far, only ONE actress had a fan meeting tour. Its NOT fair! The actress I’m talking about is NOT moon geun young, but someone else.

  13. 563
    hankk Says:

    @Sam K-561

    It is only my own personal list, and there she is listed for sure !
    I don’t care about hypes, general public and whatever.

    Cheongdamdong Alice was pretty lame as a drama. Goddess of Fire is not the winner of this season. Only in the last parts coming, she is able to become a little bit more mean, and that suits her well in fact.

    I think a next drama for MGY could be a real deep drama again, where she can play a darker role, like in Cinderella’s Sister.

  14. 564
    Sam Says:

    @Hankk
    Honestly, the main reason why I watched some episodes of Goddess of Fire is because Kim Tae Do is my favorite character. The actor who plays this admirable character is Kim Bum.

    I’m becoming a fan of him because he’s very handsome and his acting is pretty good. Unlike most Korean actors, he is famous around the world and he has fans outside of Asia.

    Also, I think he’s one of the best singers because if you compare him to other K-pop idols, he can sing as well as they can.

  15. 565
    imhel Says:

    Alas, this drama has sunk again into the bottom of the ratings. No matter how great 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.

    The ratings very low but they add 2 more special episodes…

    ann-m Says:

    So far, the only “GOOD” episodes in GOF are eps. 1-11 and 28-29 (so far). I bet the last 3 episodes will be good too. Besides that, the ENTIRE middle of GOF is NOT GOOD and SO BORING! Overall, this drama is okay.

  20. 570

    Hope the ending will be happy…Support Tae Do and Jung Yi couple!

    Becky Says:

    I think i really loves this movies.it a mixturd of art,science and love.thumb up to those amazing actors and actress who contributed to the realization of this movie.pls what the last season of jung yi?

  22. 572
    French viewer Says:

    Tae Do’s dead. Should he not go to Japan with Jung Yi ?
    Finally the war broke out, so Yung Yi will be kidnapped to Japan at the last episode ? Will Yung Yi and prince Kwang Hae end up together ?
    Overall this drama is interesting, the actors and actresses are talented. You can feel the love of the prince to Yung Yi, you can feel the hatred of Lee Kang Chun to Yung Yi and his ambition to make his son the chief of Buwon…
    There remains only the last episode. To see…

  23. 573
    Nara Says:

    So many people are MAD about tae do’s death!! Whats wrong with the writers of this drama? How could they let the most lovable character die? In history, tae do and jung yi go to Japan and end up getting married! GOF is so disappointing!

  24. 574
    Samantha Says:

    @french viewer

    I hope u realize that Tae Do’s love, devotion, and sacrifice for jung yi is stronger than gwanghae’s feelings for her. So angry and sad that Tae D got killed 🙁

  25. 575
    Diane Says:

    Such waste of time. Could’ve been good drama if weren’t for BAD directing and script writing. Better luck next time.

  26. 576
    OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 31
    I thought Jung Yi & Tae Do will marry each other in the end bc Prince cannot marry a commoner easily.
    Didn’t expect Tae Do end up like this. So sad 🙁

    Ep32 My guessing Is Jung Yi agree to go Japan in exchange of her fellow men lifes & finally come back to Korea to meet prince Kwang Hae 🙂 after many years of separation

  27. 577
    XXX Says:

    @OK OK OK

    definitely agree with ya! jung Yi cannot marry prince/king gwanghae anyways.
    On facebook, A LOT of girls outraged ’bout tae do’s death. They postin’ lots of angry comments. in this drama, Kim Bum gets more attention & outshine lee sang yoon. next time, kim bum should be the main lead for his new drama. hope his next project’s gonna be better than GOF. wish him luck!

  28. 578
    jenna Says:

    I feel so so so bad for kim bum. waitin’ 2 see his next “big hit drama” and him as the “leading actor”. GOF really pissed me off.

  29. 579
    Soulmates Says:

    I cried a lot in episode 32 🙁
    So sad

  30. 580
    Diane Says:

    Episode 31 is da saddest and da most shocking! More sad than Ep 32!

  31. 581
    OK OK OK Says:

    Luckily I didn’t know the ending when i watch this drama…. ha ha 🙂

    The writer at least manage to please me a little by sending MGY back to King Gwanghae in his imagination – no change of his love for MGY 17 years later 🙂 though I feel sad for all the 3 🙁

    I like Lee Sang Yoon very much when he acted in My Daughter Seo Yeong. He is so smart, suave, mature, handsome, very rich & kind hearted…..
    Finish watching 50 episodes becoz of him (also like Lee Bo Young there – strong character)

    Hope Kim Bum & Lee Sang Yoon both can act as 1st leading man in their own next drama with good script and good leading actress. 🙂

    I watch Fire of Goddess becoz of MGY, Kim Bum & Lee Sang Yoon (All I like – FIGHTING !!!!!)

  32. 582
    Diane Says:

    Lee sang yoon’s OK, not that great. KIM BUM is more popular! He both actor and good singer. KB is beautiful, flawless from head to toe, hot, friendly, talented. Luv him. Hope he gets leading role in next “good” drama. I’m done with goddess of fire’s boring pointless story. Moving on to other new dramas. Bye bye!

  33. 583
    Mary Says:

    I can’t believe I continued watching this drama all 32 episodes!!!!!!!! It dragged on for sooooo long that it became meaningless, in my opinion. They rushed the last 2 episodes which made the ending terrible for me. (Spoiler) Kim Bum dies, Jung Yi leaves to Japan and the king ends up all alone. Nobody was happy at the end. I expected something way better!!! I mean why did they add the war conflict??? That was pointless. Instead, they should have focused more on how Jung Yi would get acknowledged more as a first Joseon female ceramist, isn’t that what this show is supposed to be about, “Jung Yi, The Goddess of Fire”? Or maybe, they could have filmed more about how each character, perhaps happily, lived their lives after 17 years. I guess the screenwriter wanted to produce a sad ending!!!! Overall I give this drama 2 stars out of 5 just for the sake of the ceramic arts used in this drama.

    Carmelita147 Says:

    I don,t like the ending. I still like a happy fairy tale ending.

    puput Says:

    why do all the screepwriter always end their drama patheticly? do their lives have tragedy……please write down a story that make people happy…..
    This year, many dramas ended tragically …… and so unpleasant….. 🙁

  36. 586
    OK OK OK Says:

    Yes I agree with what you all said.
    At least have happy ending, then more people will watch. It will generate more revenue and also bring more popularity to all the actors & actresses.
    And we can more good memory to this drama. 🙂

  37. 587
    Carla Says:

    Overall, GOF is BAD drama! 1) kim tae do gets killed! How could the scriptwriters change history? 2) very little romance development between the two leading actors 3) boring plot that keeps dragging on 4) annoying, useless characters like the king 5) sad ending

    Hope kim bum gets main leading role in his next drama that actually has a “good” story!!!!

  38. 588

    Yeah, couldn’t agree less with cha, Carla!

  43. 593
    Carmen Says:

    People are saying that the END of this drama was SAD, no way was sad it was just…no end at all…OMG, this drama was really bad, staring with that King—-so,so,stuped, the one son that always was drinking, the manipulate wife, the vendor of all the stollen ceramic, OMG…like Joanne says a wasted 32 episode hrs….unbeliabable…..I just keep saying this year is still the worst year in Korean dramas…..omg…..the best so far right now is Heirs, Secret,Fam.King

  44. 594
    Nina Says:

    @carmen
    Besides the heirs & secret, Don’t forget that winter the wind blows. That’s a good drama and big hit too.

  45. 595
    Carla Says:

    @carmen
    I disagree wit u bcuz even tho a couple dramas this year ain’t good, 2013 is NOT the worst year of Kdramas…remember, we got new dramas comin’ out at end of dis year = pretty man starring jang geun suk, man from the stars, golden rainbow, and now empress ki just came out.

  46. 596
    Joanne Says:

    I really can’t wait until kim bum’s next drama!!!!! …I feel bad Tae Do, his lovable character, has gone to waste because of bad, boring storyline. Hope he’s gonna have a new good drama at beginning of 2014. and hope its gonna be WAY better than GOF.

  47. 597
    Nina Says:

    Kim bum seriously needs to be the leading man for his dramas from now on, both his look and his acting skills matured. he got potential to headline his own drama.
