Beanie level: Loan shark with a heart of gold

MY COUNTRY : JANG HYUK is without a doubt my fave Bang-won.
Prediction for next sageuk role. King Sejo with the SFD writer or the main character in Sambyeolcho Rebellion with the NOKDU FLOWER writer.

      King Sejo is different and they do cast actors that they are familiar with.

MY COUNTRY eps 12: Bang-won cut ties with his father.
I’m guessing the rest of this show is going to be Bang-won vs King Taejo and Bang-gan.

    This scene sequence was so dramatic and well done. Starting from his visit to King Taejo and what his father said to him. Then coming back and hearing Hwi tell him what he needed to hear.

      My favorite scene from eps 12. I thought Taejo was just stubborn for not acknowledging Bang-won as the son who saved him and his minions but he was just cruel.
      Bang-won is now done being used and for the first time he’ll fight for his own cause.
      I’m looking forward to the last 4 eps.

MY COUNTRY eps 9:❤️ Yeon-ah ❤️
These two together. My heart can’t take it 😭.

Sun-ho: Go…Yeon-ah
Yeon: Oraboni, will you be ok?
Then Park Wan-kyu starts singing and I lost it.
Yeon walks away but kept stopping to look back at Sun-ho 💔.

      I love every scenes they had together because it felt so sincere. She knew him well enough to see the best in him. I totally understand why she was crushing on him.

        Me neither. You can tell (and Do Hwan does an exceptional job acting) that he really loves her too, as a younger sister now, but it may have been more in a different time and a different place…..*sniff*

MY COUNTRY: History and Geography.

This might be helpful to those of you who are watching “My Country.”
Big thanks to Bodashiri for compiling this. It is intended for SFD but it’s the same historical background for My Country.

SHIN DON is the most authentic sageuk based on King Gongmin’s era and my personal favorite.

      Yw:).

      Hey we are all learning :).

      There is still so much historical background from Goryeo’s Northern border so I figured that we should at least have some kind of idea where it’s located.

        They seemed to be referencing scenes during their road trip that were cut. He/she mentioned her holding a knife on him and we never saw that. There was clearly stuff cut before the one fight scene on the road though.

          Thank you. I didn’t even know there were such a scene. Maybe they should’ve left it at 20 episodes.

    When the wife was rescued with the two kids. Maybe she had the opportunity then (but I can’t imagine how with his posse and his own skill set to defend himself and likely she would have been the dead one.)

MY COUNTRY’s Lady Kang and future Queen Sindeok.
Park Ye-jin is no stranger to sageuks. Her characters hailed from the 3 kingdom era all the way to Joseon. I’m so excited to see her!

      He’s a supporting actor in the 2015 10-episode drama Eating Existence.. At the very least, I will skim this series to see how this ridiculously good looking director does in front of the camera.

This would have been a big news on DB with JB and GF so here it is.
“Director Bong Joon Ho reacts to the ID of alleged ‘Memories of Murder’ serial killer.”
Three decades after the unsolved serial killings that inspired director Bong Joon Ho’s critically acclaimed 2003 film “Memories of Murder,” the Korean authorities recently identified a man they believe is responsible for the crimes.

I guess SINGAL 2 will have a good ending.

    I dont want to jinx it, but it was really good. I also like his reason for being at the widow’s village is a different reason than I thought was advertised.
