#Anthdal I’m confused, so did humans ride horses or not at the time?🤔 Cuz one group says the idea is absurd and next scene a group of warriors chit chat on their horses.

    There were horses during the Bronze Age if we are to trust the archaeologists lol.

    Are you on eps 2? I haven’t even seen it yet.

      Don’t deny there were horses, but… you have to watch ep2 to understand.

      One thing I’m sure of, stirrups did not exist at that time. It was invented much later than saddles and only became widely used in the Manchurian era and was an underrated weapon that helped Yuan conquering all of Asia.

          I think of things that are not correct but it doesn’t make me dislike a drama. If I held every drama up to a textbook magnify glass, I would have gave up on tv decades ago. 😂

          Fun facts to me are just fun facts.

            That’s my problem. I’d start off watching this kind of sageuks for fun then I’d start nitpicking after a few episodes.
            Thankfully I have a friend to watch it with who is in for the fun and nothing else.

            I think it’s easier for me to NOT think of this as a strict Sageuk. I know they say it’s set during the Bronze era but I find it makes more sense as a Myth or Legend retelling, in a mostly fictional universe where the history of metal working is irrelevant… 😂

    I didn’t pay attention to that but I lol’ed at them talking about “nations” just after narrator explained that at that time people didn’t have concept of kings.

      Yes… that summit or whatever had all kinds of contradictions. They would have been better off just started with a narration of the garlic and mugwort deal

      It’s the Netflix subs I don’t trust. They should not be allowed to sub historical dramas.
      There are a couple of translation that doesn’t make sense in the first episode too.

        I saw it in Chinese subs, so it’s not an english translation issue. Do you know what they said in Korean? I couldn’t really hear. Many Knetizens also complained they can’t hear the words.

          I read the complains about not clearly hearing what was spoken but not about the other inaccurate stuff. @fanwho help us please.

            Went back to listen. He did say for 나라, which papago says is country.

        You right, but all this “political” meetings were rather ridiculous so it’s hard to say.

    The Great Black Cliff kept this tribe away from others for many many years… therefore they have their own rules and beliefs… they don’t tame animals

      I see. I didn’t think they were that secluded.

        The Great white mother who came to Iark made up 3 rules. One of them is to respect and communicate with animals but not tame them.
        So the Wahabi (I think that’s the name) tribe didn’t ride horses.
        The Saram tribe are more advanced – they have more fashionable weapons, they can farm, build elevators, elevated pathways etc :))
