    his sister is much more entertaining, uhm is soooooo boring

  15. 15 : lady Says:

    pinoygirl Im sorry if you dont like the way he act what are you doing here??? It seems you have no idea what really acting means?

  16. 16 : OK OK OK Says:

    Why Lee Joon Hyuk always act as 2nd Lead?

  17. 17 : pinoygirl Says:

    omg… first episode got 7.1 rating… looks like competition is too tough for this drama. it may be doomed. and who said this forum was a love fest anyway @lady. other opinions are not allowed here??? are you a communist? don’t you alklow free speech??? get a life!

  18. 18 : KDaddict Says:

    I like Both Uhm Tae Woong n Lee Joon Hyuk, But Another story abt 2 boys sent to the orphanage, two best friends fr childhood, who grow up to fight each other? Haven’t we seen quite a no. of those already?
    I want to see these two actors act, but can’t get excited abt a story that I’ve seen so many times before!
    After so many years and thousands of KDs, it must be difficult for writers to come up with scripts that r original, even slightly so!

  19. 19 : KDaddict Says:

    I loved Siwan in METS. Must tune in just see how Siwan does in this one. But then, I’ll want to see Uhm Tae Woong too, n then Lee Joon Hyuk, and then LBY, in that order. 🙂

  20. 20 : jow Says:

    i think, i have to try to watch this drama, by reading at the synopsis it is quite interesting….well, i will waiting this drama when all the episode have complete..

    keep fighting to all the crews, don’t feel sad because the rating for the first two episode is quite low…


  21. 21 : jow Says:

    ohh i forget something that i want to say;

    is that guy who play in City Hunter? 🙂

  22. 22 : Mint Says:

    Lee Joon Hyuk is playing in City Hunter

  26. 26 : Mr.Effect Says:

    Who can lead me to the opening credits of this Drama ? ;D and I will be thankful to him/her

  27. 27 : mitch Says:

    …. i watched this bcoz of Siwan, i can’t get over for his role in TMETS. Lee Hyun Woo’s acting is also good, he acts very well and carry his role perfectly. the story line is good but it’s soooo heart breaking! huhuhuh.. the story is too complicated, mysterious and it’s like you’re solving a problem out of it. nice kdrama.. watch this guys, coz you can’t stop watching it bcoz you will think what will happen next.. it’s very intriguing!

  28. 28 : sandy Says:

    great drama and very very pretty to look at the PD is doing a great job and the kids are cool the subs are out check it on dramacrazy
    TEM fighting

  29. 29 : kdviewer Says:

    the 2 teens (lee hyun woo and si wan) are doing a very good job in setting their characters and how the bond friendship develop between them despite their difference in characters.

    the 2 boys are cute in their own ways… both carried the 1st 2 eps well and are interesting to watch but this drama has to compete in airtime with 2 other dramas – king2hearts and rooftop prince that boast of more well known leads…

  30. 30 : kimchilee Says:

    I love the 2 teen boys in this drama!! superb acting.. captivating and intense.. I am sure the adults will carry the same intense acting as their juniors.. the storyline is very promising and exciting.. only 2 episodes and can’t wait for more.. wow!

  31. 31 : admin Says:

    Episode 3 Preview

  32. 32 : taraLuvJJ Says:

    lee hyun woo and siwan, both are goodlooking young actors with good acting ability.. so far i really enjoy watching their perfomanced in first 2 eps..

    i think the equator man become my favorite wed-thu drama after rooftop prince..

  33. 33 : taraLuvJJ Says:

    me too,, i cannot get over si wan’s character in moon that embraces the sun, this is the main reason i’m watching equator man,, eh beside lee jun hyuk, can’t wait to see his perfomance cuz i like him since i am legend and city hunter..

    hey, i just realize by now that lee hyun woo also played the teen version of uhm tae woong in the great queen soenduk..omo..

  34. 34 : sinatra Says:

    I trust on Uhm Tae Woong….he makes this drama valueable

  35. 35 : jow Says:

    I’m waiting for this drama…my internet is very slow..so i can’t watch it through Streaming…..poor me…..

    I’m so excited to this drama….

    anyone know where i can buy the original DVD of this Drama?

  36. 36 : Jennie Says:

    I am amazed that Korea has such a wealth of young capable actors in their midst. Every new drama we see more and more of these talents to the extent that their story/scenes are far more engrossing than that of their older and more experienced actors – from dramas such as Autumn in my Heart, Iljimae, Giant, Will It Snow For Christmas, Warrior Baek Dong Soo and the recent Moon Embraces The Sun. They practically steal the limelight from these mega stars.
    The first two eps of this drama are interesting and the two boys are, as mentioned above doing a fantastic job. I love the rural, laid back setting and the music is haunting. I expect this will be a terrribly sad drama and I’m getting myself ready for a beautiful love story, between lovers and “brothers” and I’ll probably need plenty of tissues. My expectations are high for this drama and I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will not disappoint me. I am rooting for this and Rooftop Prince. K2Hs is too over the top for me 😀 and it has plenty of supporters already anyway 😉

  37. 37 : Jenna Sheh Says:

    I love Ms. Lee Bo Young . Hope your drama will rating up tonight.

    Big Fan from USA always support you forever. Keep fighting Ms. Lee

  38. 38 : devi Says:

    This drama just started but you can’t stop seeing and waiting for the next episode….From the 1st scene on the 1st episode to the current episode 4, it leaves you at the edge of your seat, waiting for what’s coming up next. Lee Hyunwoo and Si Wan both deliver excellent performance…Uhm Tae Woong is great, too. I’ve seen Lee Joon Hyuk in City Hunter and he does a good job, too. I know this will be a great ride watching the coming episodes. Good luck to the cast!

  65. 65 : kimchilee Says:

    I miss the 2 young boys after the sudden transition to adulthood from the hospital scenes.. it is like they became so old suddenly.. I will miss both their acting from now.. their acting captivated my attention to this drama in the first place and altho both adult actors are good.. something seems to be lacking .. maybe its the innocence of childhood.. still this drama has a very good interesting storyline not to be missed.

  66. 66 : Robert Chan Says:

    A great drama produced by the Koreans. Your dramas are so wonderful to watch and enjoy. I am so attach and glue to your dramas. Thanks to the efforts by the korean actors,actresses,producer and directors for churning out so many korean dramas to the world.

  86. 86 : khalish Says:

    great drama….i love love love it…..i wanna know when Kim Sun Woo & Han Ji Woon will be together

  87. 87 : corrie Says:

    khalish86,is hard to guess now that,but ,hope will be soon!

  88. 88 : Jennie Says:

    Storyline is old but the cast is amazing. Getting more exciting by the episode and giving K2Hs and RTP a run for their money. LBY seems to be getting younger over the years but still good. Two thumbs up so far 😀

  89. 89 : tc Says:


    Hi Jennie, just finished watching LBY in Hooray for Love with Lee Tae Sung, the actor who played Tae Mu in RTP. She looked good and young in that show as well. She is so lucky, have ageless beauty and hot Ji Sung as her steady BF!

    Thought of starting this drama – is it as good as reflected in the ratings?

  90. 90 : Jennie Says:

    @tc Yes, this is a very good drama. The storyline, like I have said, is nothing new but the script is daebak and keeps you engrossed. The bromance and romance is very well plotted out and I don’t need to go into the casting-all of them are good. The genre is melo and the mood and setting is sombre, time immemorial and cinematography is just as good as other dramas playing now. Reminds me very much of East of Eden and earlier Giant episodes except that this is better. Just watching how they fall in love with each other is enough for me to say I love everything about the drama, without having to see the end hehehe 😀

  91. 91 : tc Says:


    Ok, you have convinced me! I will download and marathon the show this weekend. In the meantime, I am so in awe of Micky in RTP and now declaring that I have become his Ajumma fan as well!

  92. 92 : Jennie Says:

    @tc Happy to know that you intend to watch this too. Pretty confident that you will like it too. Asa, how can anyone resist the charms of Micky? hehe, I don’t think anyone is immune. In SKK and Miss Ripley, we get to see only the serious side of him but in RTP, we see the whole range of his acting especially his specialty- being dorky and cute, which we saw a lot of when he was in DBSK. That’s why I have been so infatuated with him for such a long time but even I must say that he really really look super duper yummy in RTP and his acting skills actually exceeded my expectations 😀

    All the actors of this drama -WE TALK HERE ABOUT ,,EQUATOR MAN”,NOT ABOUT OTHERS DRAMAS! -act AMAZING!- no wonder the rating is so high! And the people who talk about others dramas here :is absolutely not fair! It doesn’t remain any place in those dramas discuss pages to talk about ??? Anyway, this drama must be awarded with a lot of prizes,from the actors crew until the production crew-they make such a great work together! ,,EQUATOR MAN”-FIGHTING!

  94. 94 : Jennie Says:

    Oh really Miss In-corrie-gible, go shoo away flies or do whatever you do over there if you have nothing better to do instead of making such negative comments. This is what you call having a conversation and we have always kept to within our bounds. Unlike you, we don’t go round throwing insults on every other drama (especially ones with good looking stars) and sounding like a broken record and a sore loser!

  95. 95 : KDaddict Says:

    It is unbelievable that “corrie” actually finally finds a drama that she likes, n 2 ppl she can talk to, bc they also like Equator Man. They don’t know what she is really like as a person.
    She likes this drama so she is happy happy here. But on all other threads, she insults every show, every actor n viewer. The worst internet citizen I never met!

  96. 96 : corrie Says:

    oh you,two ! finally you find me again! you don’t have anything to do better than you begin argue again with me??? what do you want to do,to force me to leave this site,because you two don’t like me or my opinions ?? You have a lot of series here to watch and to change opinions with all those who have the same opinions as you!

  97. 97 : aurelie Says:

    the 14th episode have an amazing beginning,and the cello from the instrumental music make a great impression on me: the scene with the two lovers and the cello who complete it, deserve an Oscar -yes,why not an Oscar?

  98. 98 : Jennie Says:

    #96 My not so Dear Corrie, to be frank, both KDaddict and I are not arguing with you. We don’t waste our precious time doing that. We just want to set the record straight and believe me, we definitely did not “find you again”. You invited the attention yourself! First off, I was having a conversation with my friend tc here and you intruded into our conversation yourself. We did not prevent you nor comment on your praises for this drama. What I did do on other threads was to ask you to give fair comments based on facts and logic and of course you have your own opinions but really, the comments you have made so far on these threads are based on prejudice that you have and I doubt if you have seen any of those dramas. I am not forcing you to like a certain drama, believe me, I wouldn’t even bother. I have taken the trouble to copy and paste some of the comments that you have made on these threads to show how unreasonable you are:

    On Love Rain: “awgh! all those sweetness dramas with plenty of little boys who look like girls make me feel sick!”

    “This is the most boring Korean drama of all I’ve watched ’till right now! With all those little boys who looks like girls…bleah! No wonder the rating is soooo low! ,,EQUATOR MAN” AND UHM TAE WOO

    “Cause ,@Ina 485, this drama is a piece of sheet,and the guys who’re named ,,actors” aren’t actors! This is a shame for the Korean film industry to make so many movies and dramas with so many no-name ,,actors”,and the great Korean actors must play the second roles so many times!”

    “THIS is and THAT will be the highest rating of this drama ’til the end,because THIS IS THE WILL OF THE KOREAN VIEWERS !”

    On Rooftop Prince: “Like indie dramas,the Korean dramas are full of little boys and girls who think they are ,,actors”! If the producers don’t ask the Korean stars to be guest in their dramas, the entire work look like a cake with too much fondant cream!”

    If you traced back our comments fr 89 onwards, main focus of my conversation with Jennie was asking for her views on this drama and she actually gave very positive feedback which convinced me to watch this show. I do not understand why you were so hostile and intruded in our conversation when Jennie was merely responded to my side remark on Micky.

    Regular viewers like us are bound to meet at active threads and I don’t see the harm of responding to side queries when we keep our focus on main topic! In fact, my curiosity in this drama actually started when I saw side comments made by viewers in other more popular threads. Otherwise, I would not have bother to come over and check out viewers’ comments in this thread.

    Nobody wants to find you. It is an unpleasant enough experience just running into you unexpectedly.
    Your behavior on this site is always atrocious, if u even know what that word means. You r rude, insulting, nasty. We all come here to share our love for korean drama. You come here to spill poison. You curse ppl for writing recaps; you scream at ppl for chatting w friends; You insult everyone.
    You r happy happy on this thread. We were happy happy on various threads, then u came along to insult everyone, calling shows or actors “piece of sheet”. How would u feel if we come here to insult your fav actor n show n call them “piece of sheet”? We would’t cos we aren’t like you.
    I was going to watch this show. Then I saw your presence on this thread. I changed my mind bc I have no interest in being on the same thread as you.

    […] to air on 14/March/2012 but delay to 21/March/2012 due to the delay of The King 2hearts (MBC) and The Equator Man (KBS2). These three dramas will start on same day and same time. […]

  104. 104 : PS Says:

    This show is fantastic!! Especially Uhm Tae Woong’s acting is so good that I almost forgotten that he was not blind. I have friends that are visually handicapped. Uhm Tae Woong must have actually spent time to with the visually handicapped to act so real. I must say I was impressed!

  105. 105 : Jennie Says:

    @aurelie #97 I love the cello sounds too, especially when it is being played in scenes of the two lovers. I first noticed it when they planned to meet up for a concert, somewhere in Episode 6 or 7, I think. I thought it was so romantic and beautiful and I totally fell in love with this drama after that. That’s why I told tc @ # 90 to watch the drama 😀

  106. 106 : tc Says:


    Thanks for the recommendation. I managed to marathon the entire 14 episodes over last weekend and never regret it. It is so addictive and you were right. It reminded me of East of Eden and Giant but this is better, especially the awesome acting by both male leads.

    I am impressed with Tae Woong’s acting of a blind person. It is so ironic that although Joon Hyuk was playing the role of antagonist, there are times when I pity him and don’t hate him. Kim Young Chul who successfully played the role of evil King in the Princess Man was also the main villain here and he did such a good job that I can’t wait to see his downfall.

    By the way, who is Sun Woo’s real dad? At the beginning of ep 1, Jang Il mentioned to Jin No Sik that luckily Sun Woo is not his son but in subsequent flashback scene between Sun Woo’s mum and Tae Joo, it was hinted that No Sik is Sun Woo’s dad.

  107. 107 : tc Says:

    I also like to see how the main couple fall in love and when the lovers reunited in ep 14, I could feel the longing they had for each other via the kiss. It was daebak and one of the best kisses that I have seen whereby both lovers were actively participating with scenic background and lovely music.

    Wow, this is really the best times for me and other KDrama lovers. I have never watched so many good dramas that are currently airing at the same time especially Wed/ Thurs slots.

  108. 108 : AURA Says:

    sooooo lovely episode,ep14! MASTERPIECE….

  109. 109 : Jennie Says:

    @tc So happy that you like the drama as well. Am quite sure that Sun Woo is Jin No Sik’s son. I think it was pretty obvious in that flashback. I too am torn about Joon Hyuk. It’s pretty hard to hate him and he did what he could to protect his dad then but he’s that kind of second lead whom you love to hate but can’t really. The focal point of this drama for me is really the romance and I’ve always thought of LBY as unresponsive and quite cold when it comes to skinship with her co stars but she’s impressive here. Maybe she had lots of practice with bf, Ji Sung, huh? And the music is the best and blends in so nicely with the scenes. Yes, agree with you that all of us KD junkies are as happy as clams this year with some really entertaining dramas and we still have more to come. Really looking forward to SSH and JJ’s Time Slip Dr Jin 😀

  110. 110 : sandy Says:

    I think the viewers who say that Ji won is boring and thin are really stupid cause it is clear that she is waiting for her chance to get back at the president I hope we see the real her soon and she is romantic and since when romantic was boring

  111. 111 : Jennie Says:

    The subs are really slow for this drama. Dying to know what happened in Ep 15 & 16. Although Jin, Jang Il and his father are the culprits, I dislike the character Soo Mi more. She’s blackmailing Jang Il emotionally and playing with fire to get what she wants. Although she loves him in her own way, it’s a terrible way to force Jang Il to give her any attention at all. She’s a “bad friend” to all of them and I wouldn’t wish her to end up with anyone at all, especially not with Jang Il. At least with Jang Il, he did what he had to do because he wanted to protect his father and he is now paying the price of it. His father is even worse than Jin. I hated him when he comlplained why Sun Woo was making Jang Il’s life miserable by bringing up the past. Did he forget that he was the one who killed Sun Woo’s father? Has he no guilt at all?

  112. 112 : anna Says:

    waw, Sun Woo’s revenge is coming…. Another great episode (15)
    Soo Mi is crazy obsessed.
    can’t predicted the end, but please, sunwoo and jiwon be together,

  113. 113 : Jennie Says:

    Sun Woo’s eyes seem to be bothering him. Are these signs that he will go blind in the end? i hope not because it will be so unfair!

  114. 114 : jow Says:

    I’m totally hooked to this drama
    THE BEST IN 2012 SO FAR…this drama is so great and the story line so strong
    i have watched K2H and Rooftop prince and all i want to say is EQUATOR MAN IS THE BEST AMONG THOSE TWO DRAMA

    this drama deserved to get more rating

    good job to all the crews

  115. 115 : jhapzter Says:

    i never thought that i’ll watch the whole 16 ep of it in 2 days, i never thoguht it was this good, now i know why it’s in 2nd place in airing time , i don’t know who’s the 1st but it’s ahead from those K2H and RofftopPrnce, it’s story is a lil’ more intriguing than those even if some would say that it’s like some other plot, but it has it’s own uniqueness and style, i was really hesitant to watch this drama at first but, i don’t even a single cent regretted that i’ve take my time to watch this, well i should’ve waited a lil’ more 2 weeks so that it’s finished and not wait like hell and think what will the story turn out to be, i hope it’s a good one since the first episode previewed us what should be near the end of the conclusion. so to other fans there of kdramas i really recommend this and be sure that it will not fail ur expectations, the acting is so topnotched. i like.

  116. 116 : KDaddict Says:

    Lee Joon Hyuk:
    I have always found Lee Joon Hyuk handsome in his previous dramas, A Star’s Lover, First Wives Club, 3 Brothers, City Hunter, etc. In this drama, I think his appearance has changed. I’m pretty sure there is a bit of plastic surgery involved. His face now looks more feminine. It has lost some of his own character n identity n has acquired the look that is currently more popular in KD-land, i.e. the feminine-masculine look. Has anyone else noticed it, or do I need to get my eyes and/or my head examined??

  117. 117 : tc Says:

    @KDaddict -116

    I was so busy hating his character that I did not really notice the physical change until you pointed it out and I have to agree with your observation especially comparing with his appearance in City Hunter. Come to think of it, he is also playing the same role ie prosecutor but as a badass.

    He is not the worst character in this drama though. I think his dad and Soo Mi were worse. Soo Mi was supposed to be a close friend of the male lead played by Tae Woong and she actually covered up the crimes committed against Tae Woong’s character all for the sake of unrequited love.

    Tae Woong was a fantastic actor. His gut wrenching cries in ep 15 were so real and he deserve to be nominated for best actor award.

  118. 118 : KDaddict Says:

    LJH’s appearance had not changed up till City Hunter. I thought he looked really good. Too bad he had to go n changed it. He now looks more like any other pretty boy.
    My taste in KD seems to be changing. I’m losing patience w angst-filled situations that deliberately get dragged out. So these days I enjoy sit-coms a lot. Queen I’s M is also Drama-lite, a drama w/out the dramatics (like Pepsi-lite, pepsi w/out the calories). But then, what is the pt of watching drama w/out the dramatics, rt? I guess, I don’t want to get my chains yanked, or my emotional buttons pushed too blatantly anymore.
    No doubt Uhm TW is a fantastic actor. I’ve half a mind to watch this when it’s over. You have to tell me its frustration factor: on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the most frustrating. Where does it stand?
    Would u say FoGs is a 4 or 5?

  119. 119 : Jennie Says:

    @tc & KDaddict Talking about LJH’s looks, he has definitely softened his looks. At one scene in Ep 15, when Sun Woo was asking him whether his father killed his father, Jang Il started laughing, wasn’t really a laugh, more like sneering and at that moment I told myself jeez, this guy will really look good as a vampire. You know the clean cut look, jet black hair and that pale complexion, he hardly needs any makeup to look like a vampire. Maybe he should take on the role as our Vampire Prosecutor 2. Definitely will give our super hot Yun Jung Hoon a run for his money!

  120. 120 : Jennie Says:

    Episode 15 I don’t think I have ever seen a grown man cry like UTW did in a KD before. It was really heart wrenching to see. Great scene, UTW!

  121. 121 : tc Says:


    I would assign frustration level 4 for FoGs and not 5 as the writer did manage to pacify our frustration in the last few episodes with more romantic moments between our favorite couple.

    As for this drama, yes I do feel frustrated at times but not at the plot or pacing of the drama. I just could not wait for the badass guys to be punished and for the male lead, Sun Woo to get his revenge.

    Although the genre of the drama is melo, I find that it still has an optimistic underdog tone even when things hit rock bottom for our hero especially when he was blind.

    I like Sun Woo’s character as he is smart, caring and has a never give up attitude. The plot really get exciting and build up when Sun
    Woo regain his eyesight and came back for revenge especially when pitted
    against veteran antagonist played by Kim Young Chul. Please do change your mind and watch this show when you get bored with rom com.

    change your mind and watch this show when you are in a mood for serious stuff.

  122. 122 : KDaddict Says:

    You say it well. I’ll keep it in mind, for a change of pace. Thanks.
    Waiting for the bad guys to be punished, waiting for the good guys to get their due, that waiting game is the crux of all KD, isn’t it?

    I hate it that LJH has “softened his looks”. There r so many actors w baby-soft looks. His had a manly edge that set him apart fr the pack. I really liked him the way he looked b4 this. Boo!

  123. 123 : Jennie Says:

    This drama touches me because of Sun Woo’s love for Ji Woon. Because of her, he learnt of love, friendship and forgiveness. He fell in love when he was blind and because of her, he wanted to live. Because of her, he wanted to have his sight back, because of her, he wanted to go to her after only he purify his mind from revenge (which, we know luckily did not happen, otherwise we’d have to wait until the end of the drama). Because of her, he offered Jang Il a chance to seek his forgiveness (which sadly Jang Il did not accept) and I hope that in the end, Sun Woo, because of her will find happiness and contentment and that revenge is not the answer to these things, just as she had learnt long ago. We may not have many scenes of Ji Woon but to me, she’s the turning point for Sun Woo. He needs her to bring the balance into his life and to know that life is not about revenge, lies and deceit.

  124. 124 : tc Says:


    Yes, I am drawn to SunWoo/Ji Woon’s steadfast love for each other. Both had demonstrated their unshakable love throughout the trials especially Ji Woon who still chose Sun Woo and not Jang Il when he was blind. She waited faithfully for his return despite absence of any news for more than 10 years whilst Sun Woo was willing to go through operations after operations and pain to regain his eyesight so that he can have a chance to see Ji Woon. He thought of her daily and never have any relationship wi other women.

    There were some negative comments about Ji Woon’s placid character in other threads but I think Sun Woo needs someone like her who is simple minded and steadfast to balance up all the emotional upheavals caused by other complex characters towards him in this show. Otherwise, there is no shoulder to cry on when things get tough for Sun Woo.

  125. 125 : Jennie Says:

    @tc Agree with you there are not many scenes nor action from Ji Woon. That always happens to the leading lady in most dramas these days. Viewers often expect the leading lady to be smart, outspoken, pretty, kindhearted etc and with plenty of action. With Equaotor Man, the female lead is the reason behind all the action. The drama is Sun Woo’s story and Ji Woon’s role in this drama is to be his strength and his woman, so she doesn’t need to over shadow him but to be his shadow. She does not have to say much but she stays by his side through thick and thin. That’s why she forgave him so quickly when she found out that he knew who she was after all. The writer has already explained why Ji Woon is who she is. it’s because she has experienced herself first hand on the wickedness of Jin and how she overcame the need for revenge. Sun Woo needs her to help him learn to trust and have faith in the world again. That’s why I am so taken with their love story. It’s simple but the bond between them is fantastic.

  130. 130 : sinatra Says:

    I really like Jennie 125 comments….. very nice 🙂

  131. 131 : Jennie Says:

    @sinatra TQ so much for saying that. One more thing I’d like to add about Ji Woon’s role is Ji Woon was Sun Woo’s eyes when he was blind. She read to him, he learnt about love and life and helped him discover a whole new world despite his blindness. Now that he has regained his sight, he learns that there are things that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Ji Woon will be the one to show him how to have faith again. Should Sun Woo lose his sight again, I believe Ji Woon will be by his side and he will learn that life is valuable whether one can see or not. To me, Ji Woon is not the lead character and is the supporting actress. The lead character in this drama is only Uhm TW, as the Man from The Equator, just as the title suggests 😀

  132. 132 : anna Says:

    all right! Nobody died in rooftop scene, revenge can be done psychologically without killing anyone. But, vengeance does not make you happier
    Intense action, waw just 2 ep….
    From the first episode I not understand why JangIl wants to kill the president Jin
    Now, all makes sense. His father committed suicide…

    Sunwoo = The Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway, courage in the face of defeat, personal triumph won from loss, because met the love of life Jiwon
    I hope sunwoo not blind, no again!

  133. 133 : Jennie Says:

    @anna For Sun Woo, even if he becomes blind in the end, he would have regained all that are important to him-Ji Woon, friends, trust etc the things he lost in his youth -“Man can be defeated but not destroyed”, as Santiago in Old Man of the Sea. We hope Jang Il will also walk the path that Sun Woo has, so that he too will regain his pride and glory. He did work hard to become a great prosecutor and all he did was to protect his dad who sacrificed everything for him. He was a good son to his father. He is a character I think Sun Woo can forgive “I love you but I have to kill you” 😀 Btw, Sun Woo always calls Ji Woon Hemingway. To him she is perhaps his master/mistress and protector 😉

  134. 134 : anna Says:

    @Jennie after I read what you wrote, I understand Jiwon’s role, she gave Sunwoo the strength to go on.

    No secrets stay hidden …
    About Soomi, I can tell is guilty.
    JangIl… it’s hard to judge. He was a good son, but in life we always have choices and his decision was wrong. I guess he must pay.
    Let’s see what will be…

There is nothing change for his nose, eyes, etc… from his Three brothers days until EM’s days I’m sure.. It’s all about make up and treatment… There is a way other than plastic surgery can make your looks change, for example, for aging treatment that make you ten years younger than your actual age.

    I watched 7 eps and gave up, for now at least. I may return to it another day. The acting is not so good and the director is brain-dead. Sorry director-neem, I conceed there maybe legitimate reasons for the cookie-cutter approach. Why these kdrama cinematographer/directors insist on using a staple of camera methods/effects without properly learning their purpose, the mind boggles. These cookie-cutter methods can detract the viewer about as much as over the top special fx, inappropriate soundtrack and bad acting.

    The only thing that gives me hope is the ratings look okay. Oh yea, and Bo Young, for this viewer at least, mitigates all faults in the production..hehe.

  157. 157 : Hanako Says:

    It is a superb movie to me. But it is funny it was not awarded. Sun Woo is someone who is unfortunate involved with a friend who is a traitor and nearly a murderer. The father being stupid and killed his father and all because of Sun Woo’s real father Jin. In a way it is a movie of revenge but he is too forgiving and even can forgive a friend who nearly killed him but he was blind because of his friend too. Fate made him survive and succeeded by his adopted father’s friend. There are many people who are like Lee Jang Il in this world backstabbing, cold hearted, hatred, jealousy..very common in the world today so this is a good movie and a good lesson for those who behave like Lee Joon Il.
    Bravo to the writer and producer..I love the movie…One of the best movie 2012 besides The Moon that embraces the sun/ Rooftop Prince

  160. 160 : Iwan Says:

    Almost all of the commentary on the much talked Sun Woo (Uhm Tae Woon) and Han Ji Woon (Lee Bou Young). They’re talking about two people is good, forgiving, suffering, good acting, etc..
    But speaking burden, suffering, misery, and forgive; anyone who has more burden, suffering, misery, and forgive? Many said Sun Woo suffered the most, because he’s been betrayed, blind, depressed mind. But I think Lee Jang Ill. (Lee Joon Hyuk) are more affected than Sun Woo. Indeed, Sun Woo suffered and had nightmares, but in episode 20 Ill Lee Jang also said he could not sleep every night because haunted by the actions of her parents, the pressure of Jin No Sik, the guilt of betraying his best friend until he committed suicide jumping off the sea cliffs . When the unknown biological father Sun Woo is still alive, contrary to the Ill Jang Ling’s father died, when his beloved (Han Ji Woon) loved Sun Woo and Lee Jang Ill still suffering with his mouth shut and not tell Sun Woo. I saw in the whole episode, that suffering Sun Woo stops, but the suffering continues Ill Lee Jang.
    I’m more interested in the Lee Jang Ill (although Sun Woo as the main actor), where he was in a dilemma and depressed from various directions:
    1. guilt towards his friend.
    2. protect parents who do wrong (you might be prosecuted, his parents say, but I think it’s not that easy to judge the parents who telahh caring, encouraging, and gave his life for his son).
    3. pressured from Jin No Sik (Bos parents).
    4. his love rejected Han Ji Won (if you say: why not choose Choi Min Soo, and I would say: Why Han Ji Won loves Sun Woo and kept waiting and accept it, also contrary to Sun Woo Han Ji Woon).
    5. Her friend (Sun Woo) revenge
    6. his father died
    7. he resigned from his job as a prosecutor.
    8. He lost everything and is very depressed.
    Ill forgive Lee Jang Sun Woo (not just Sun Woo are forgiven) in episode 20.
     Sun Woo is the main actor, but I was more interested in the life of Lee Jang Ill ironic. Lee Jang Ill more suffering, more depressed, and more tragic life than Sun Woo. Lee Jang Ill have a sincere love, sincere, selfless, and refused to budge for the sake of his friend.
    I am very sorry for the life of Lee Jang Ill., suffering, lonely, depressed, bear the burden of his father’s debts, fight of life is poor, even when a prosecutor, he must protect his beloved father, the death of his father, out of work, haunted by guilt at friend, received retaliation from his friend and trying not to hurt his friend, until he was depressed in her suicide.

    I’ve just finished watching this drama. I agree it is good drama. But one thing I don’t understand ; Did Jang Il die when he let himself drown ? Why Sun Woo can’t save him ?

    @Vivian 161 : you can choose gooddrama link. I watch also from this link also.
    Dear All, for me the love of Ji Won was much bigger than Sun Woo’s to her from the beginning. Sun Woo always left her when he was blind and after he regained his sight. Also Ji Won came to look for him at the end…. I am touched by her deep love to him, even she could overcome her hatred to Jin No Sik, Sun Woo’s biological father, just because she loved Sun Woo more…

    lately the newer dramas are just pitiful so its hard for me to pass even the 3rd epi so am always looking for older dramas which by the way are my favs cz reading kdramas history it seems that all the best kdramas were done in the 90s with tv ratings going insanely up to the 60% 70%
    something impossible to achieve today not even half of that so lucky me i found all those dramas with eng subs through the years and watched most of them and gladly say that those ratings were much well deserved and more so with this mind set i came to equator man tho is not that old (2012) and the title was kind of weird first i thought the plot was about some korean who went to ecuador the south american country to start some business there or a new life etc but in the 4th epi it was all well explained why equator is in the title hahaha so for all those of you who are in the same predicament as me just wait until epi 4 hahahahaha just finished epi 6 and wow can not be better the plot was very well defined from the 1st epi and the adult part of the drama just started in this epi just perfectly timed for me when bo young remeet the blind guy without knowingly who he was the best part of this epi came when bo young was playing the guitar and singing moon river which later i knew it wasnt her but audrey hepburn accompanied by the henry mancini orq in the old movie breakfast at tiffany of the 60s omg omg a lot of emotions came back and i have lots of tears rolling down on my face cz i was a teen at that time and that song reminded me of a girl that i was so much in loved with at that time omg omg i just couldnt stop crying cz i completely forgot about all of those things but now they are coming back like an unstoppable landslide omg it feels so good the plot is getting really interesting and unpredictable and am loving it so much and i hope it wont lose the fast pace that its in looking forward for the next epis
