          The insane crowds won’t be worth it, at least in Disneyland park. I am avoiding Disneyland for the near future once Star Wars opens – oh hell no!!!

          Just think that taking some time off will enable the park to feel new again once you go back. That’s how I always like to think of it since I can usually only go once a year.

            I’m already feeling it. Lately I’ve only gone there to let people in and would only stay for an hr or so.
            My other half is over the team that are working on the Millennium Falcon ride so I should be able sneak in before it opens to the public then I’ll stay away all summer.

    Totally deserved it. This episode hit me more to the core. I love how this episode went back to the drama’s main purpose – to tell the story of parents and how they raise their kids. I am not a parent myself and I didn’t grow up from a dysfunctional family, so I wouldn’t know the exact feeling, but this drama really makes you think being a parent is not an entitlement. It is not a right for everyone. That there should even be a licence to become parents.

    I talk big now that I won’t become a parent like them, but who knows. It’s hard when you’re actually in that situation that you have to choose. Life is never black and white.

      It’s going to be hard to ignore her since she is the leading lady. If this was a film I wouldn’t worry so much. She was decent in THE GREAT BATTLE with Kim Kwang-sik at the helm but I don’t know about this drama.

      Kim Seolhyun is actually not so bad as an actress. She’s actually much better than the likes of Suzy, Taecyeon, Joy, and Son Naeun.

        TBH, I haven’t watched her in anything. I just thought she’s too green to be a lead and in a saeguk at that. She might surprise me.

        My criteria is surprisingly low. It’s okay if an actress can’t really act, as long as she doesn’t annoy me.

          I watched a couple of episodes of Orange Marmalada and I think she did quite ok opposite Yeo Jin-goo and Lee Jong-hyun. Her acting at least didn’t make me cringe. But let’s see as this drama is going to be a sageuk. I hope she does well.

“ASADAL CHRONICLES”
THE FOUNDING OF OLD CHOSUN (WANGGOM CHOSUN)
(from Samguk Yusa Book 1)
PART 1.
In the Wei-shu it is written, “Two thousand years ago (Traditional date: 2333 B.C.) Tangun, otherwise called Wanggom, chose Asadal, also described as Muyop-san in the province of Paekju east of Kaesong, at a place now called Paegak-kung ( modern P’yongyang) as his royal residence and founded a nation, calling it Chosun, at the same period as Kao (legendary Chinese Emperor Yao).”
In the Old Book it is written, “In ancient times Hwan-in (Heavenly King, Chesok or Sakrodeveendra) had a young son whose name was Hwan-ung. The boy wished to descend from heaven and live in the human world. His father, after examining three great mountains, chose T’aebaek-san (the Myohyang Mountains in north Korea) as a suitable place for his heavenly son to bring happiness to human beings. He gave Hwan-ung three heavenly treasures, and commanded him to rule over his people.

“With three thousand of his loyal subjects Hwalll-ung descended from heaven and appeared under a sandalwood tree on T’ae’baek Mountain. He named the place Sin-si (city of gpd) and assumed the title of Hwan-ung Ch’onwang (another .title meaning heavenly king). He led his ministers of wind, rain and clouds in teaching the people more than 360 useful arts, including agriculture and medicine, inculcated moral principles and imposed a code of law.

*Map* shows Mount Paekju (Baekdu) where our story started. Another sageuk set in North Korea.

    I have 4 questions.
    1. Is WANGGOM CHOSUN same as Gojoseon?
    2. Is the story you described above related to the bear, tiger and garlic story?
    3. By using the word “Sakrodeveendra”, did you mean the Mahayana Lord of gods? Do the Mahayana use the same term as Theravada for the King god? Because in Theravada, gods don’t have kids. I’m curious about Mahayana.
    4. I’ve seen a folktale called “Asadal and his wife Asanyeo”. Is this related to this drama in any way?
    .
    Thanks in advance! 🙂 🙂

      Sorry I’m so late here.
      1. I think Asadal was renamed Wanggom later, the capital city of Gojoseon and it’s also the first king’s royal/heavenly/birth/holy name or whatever they call it back then.
      2. Bear, tiger not sure about garlic.
      3. Don’t know sorry. Haven’t gotten that far yet.
      4. I believe “Asadal and his wife Asanyeo” were from the 3 kingdom era. It came after and Tangun’s wife was not Asanyeo.

      1
      1

        Oh it’s ok! 🙂
        2. Surely you know this story, so I’m not sure whether you didn’t understand my question. In case…A tiger and a bear prayed to Hwanung that they might become human. Upon hearing their prayers, Hwanung gave them 20 cloves of garlic and a bundle of mugwort, ordering them to eat only this sacred food and remain out of …
        I’m asking whether you think this story/myth is gonna be portrayed in Asadal . 🙂
        3. Can you tell me, if you remember, where you found the term “Sakrodeveendra”? Did you use it as just a…I dunno, synonym or is there’s a specific reason? I’ll look it up from thereafter. I’m just curious, that’s all. 🙂
        .
        Thanks for answering my silly questions! A lot! 🙂

I’m SO happy that Song Joong-ki finally confirmed to be the lead as Eun Seom later King Dangun.
I’m going to research the heck out of this era before the show starts.
Official Title:” Asadal Chronicles”
If I understand correctly, this is not strictly historical but based off a chronicle of events as it is an account of beliefs and folklore of medieval Korea.

I’m officially dedicating my wall for weekly research on “Asadal.”
I read the story of his birth and it’s similar to “The legend’s” opening scene.

    I think it’s too big of a show for them to ignore but I really hope viki or dramafever will pick it up.
    It’s a historical drama and the fans are more knowledgeable imo. I can’t imagine Netflix subbing “Six Flying Dragons” or “Queen Seon Deok.”

    I really hope @headsno2 will be back to recap it 🙏.

Disneyland at night 😍.
If you are planning on going to Disneyland, do stay for the Pixar fireworks at 9:30pm. It’s the best part!!!!

Hope you are all enjoying summer!!!

    So jelly!!!! But, I will be going to Disney World in the fall, so I guess I will survive. Nobody does fireworks like Disney.

      Right! Nobody does. The music, the characters etc etc. They spent around 50k per night on fireworks alone. It’s truly magical.

      So happy for you! It’s going to be great during fall! You won’t have to deal with the summer crowd although it hasn’t been so bad this year until Pixar Pier opened last weekend.

      I hope to see pictures of your trip :).

        We are going in time for Toy Story Land to be opened in WDW, so I won’t be totally missing out by not going to Disneyland this year. I will post some pics if I remember!!

        Unfortunately, next year it would be great to go back to Disneyland- but hell no! Not when Star Wars will be opening in 2019!!! I shiver to think of the crowds…😱

          Yep it’s going to be so crowded next year but it’ll be fun too. I’m looking forward to the new millennium falcon ride.
          They are taking Bug’s land down and replacing it with Marvel Land or something like that.

          I think California Adventure is not about California anymore lol. Most of the rides and entertainment has nothing to do with Cali anymore. Even Soaring has been replaced from over Ca to over the world. The Ca Screaming is now called Incredicoaster lol.
          Maybe they should rename that part of the park to Pixar/Marvel something.

          1
          2

            I can definitely see them replacing Bug’s Land with something different. But, it was always a nice quiet area to relax and that will obviously go away if they remodel. I am not sure if I like the idea of a Marvel themed land. It’s too Universal-ly and doesn’t scream Disney magic. What are they going to do? Put in a fake NY? 😂 Then it really won’t be about California anymore. Hahahaha I do think that some of the revamping was necessary to keep that park alive, because until Cars Land came it really wasn’t that successful in comparison to Disneyland. Not that it will ever beat the draw of Disneyland, but now I think it gets a much bigger crowd.

            1

            I feel kind of sad for the little kids who loves Bug’s Land and yes, it’s always relaxing over there. Kind of hidden in the middle.
            I don’t know how they are going to do this Marvel thing. It’s kind of a small spot for such a huge and popular universe with so many superheros.

            I’m guessing they want the two parks to share the crowd evenly. The most crowd has been Disneyland in forever until lately.
            Most of my friends and families only want to go to Ca Adventure which works out for me because it’s always available on my pass.
