The King 2 Hearts: Episode 12

There’s nothing better than a show that can pack an hour full of heart-stopping action, fairytale romance, and gut-busting humor. Our hero gets into trouble, but you know what that means – time for the heroine to swoop in and save the day. ‘Ssup.

 
EPISODE 12 RECAP

Hang-ah’s father races into the prime minister’s office with the news – General ShortFuse has gone off the reservation and Jae-ha is in danger. Nooo! This is why we need a batphone!

Sure enough, the general’s troops march right up to Jae-ha to announce that they will be taking over his security detail from now on. Shi-kyung steps forward to tell them that he’s the only one who gets to put his hands on the king. Okay, he doesn’t say that, but he does step forward like a big ol’ hero to say that’s his job.

Soldiers on both sides tense up and reach for their guns. Shi-kyung is in full-on Doberman mode. Jae-ha comes forward and asks for their rank, and dismisses them with a laugh. I don’t think that was such a good idea.

The prime minister reacts skeptically to the news, even though it’s happening right now. He says that the general was just blowing off steam, but he wouldn’t do something so crazy as to kidnap the South Korean king… and then names the location where he’s going to be kidnapped. Er…

Hang-ah’s father looks up. He never said where…

Augh, the friggin’ prime minister’s in on it too? Is there anyone we can trust? At least he’s not so much IN on the plan, as he’s letting the plan happen so he can catch General Shouty and get rid of him for good.

But Hang-ah’s father reminds him that it’s the KING they’re talking about. Forget kidnapping – it’d be war if he got a splinter under his nail. Hee. I do enjoy prissy king jokes, despite the gravity of the situation.

He reminds the prime minister that war is the only way this scenario ends, which means a leveled peninsula, both North and South. That finally gets through to the man, and they send troops to arrest the general and his men, but they’re already in the wind. In fact it just makes the baddies move their timetable up.

Dad comically pretends to be talking about something else when Hang-ah bursts into his office during a frantic phone call. He’s turned the base upside-down looking for the general, which she tells him, and he’s like, how’d you know? Ha.

She tells him that Jae-ha has to be sent back home immediately, and Dad says he’s already on it—he’ll be sent back first thing tomorrow, because he’s got a few more stops on his cultural itinerary that can’t be undone.

Hang-ah freaks out, as do I. This is not a leisurely I’ll-take-in-the-sights-and-then-run-away-from-my-kidnappers-later kind of scenario here. But Dad in turn freaks out over her caring about a man who has nothing to do with her anymore.He swears he’s got it under control, and puts her under house arrest for good measure.

Jae-ha heads to an amusement park next, and Shi-kyung worries about the openness of the landscape. Won’t it be hard to secure the area? LISTEN to your head of security please. But their guide assures them it’ll be fine.

Hang-ah worries about the same thing when she hears about Jae-ha’s next stop from the two soldiers guarding her at home. They tell her to forget that jerk already, and ask if they can peek at the present he brought.

She tells them they can have it all and goes to her room, to stare herself down in the mirror and say over and over that Jae-ha is no longer any of her concern.

Dad decides to oversee Jae-ha’s amusement park visit personally, and watches as he rides the Viking. At first it’s dead silent, with citizens on one side and Jae-ha and his security team on the other, so finally Jae-ha nudges Shi-kyung and raises his arms up for a Whoooo~!

No one else follows along, so he has to force Shi-kyung, who does the most awkward and self-conscious Whooooo~. He finally gets everyone to join in, and they have a great time for the cameras, broadcasting live on the internet.

He even stops to wink into the camera at Secretary Eun, who watches from the palace. Keh. Everything is business as usual down at the park, but from the top of a hill, the baddies put their plan into motion and take over a security room.

Hang-ah cleans her room, which serves as a distraction for about five minutes. She comes out to ask about lunch, and the soldiers say they found a box underneath the other stuff in Jae-ha’s present.

They hand her the gift-within-a-gift, a box marked with the royal seal and a note: Handmade by Lee Jae-ha. Flashback to Jae-ha researching the best thing to make for her skin, and slaving away over his chemistry set like a big ol’ nerd. So. Cute.

She braces herself and then opens the box. There’s a note inside: “An unfamiliar marriage, an awful man, a miscarriage… For Kim Hang-ah, who had a really hard time: Natural 3-step Skincare Project.”

That’s adorable. It comes with detailed instructions on how to use everything, and then she takes out the first bottle. It’s called: “I’m sorry.” The second: “Thank you.” Omg so sweet.

Cut back to Chemistry Set Jae-ha, getting frustrated halfway through. He wonders if he has to work this hard, and then takes out his phone to look at a picture of Hang-ah dressed as his princess bride.

He sighs, “Of course you do, you jerk.” HA. He says to the picture, “I love you.”

And then Hang-ah takes out the last bottle. The third label: “I love you.” Awwww. She looks down at the gift, overcome with emotion.

She peeks outside at her sentries and asks for lunch again, and they rush to her side. Cut to: Hang-ah holding both agents by the throat, one with her hand, and one with her foot, while her free hand waves around a gun. Hahahaha.

She tells them she’ll be going out now, and then changes into her military uniform. It’s totally her superhero cape moment. She makes a call on her way out, to ask someone if they’re up for some training. Please be your WOC team. I want that reunion so badly.

Jae-ha gets led to a carousel, and he eyes the ride like, you want me to get on this? They swear it’s the last one, so he sighs and turns to Shi-kyung, who decides that it’s probably safe enough for him to ride alone. Ha. Is riding little horsies too emasculating for the super agent?

Jae-ha walks off sighing, “Stresssss.” The park’s mascot, Tom (of Tom and Jerry) follows him onto the ride along with a few civilians, and is anyone else suspicious of that overly cheery cat?

He goes ’round and ’round and everything seems fine, until suddenly the lights cut out. Bong-gu watches the live feed online, screaming, “Showtime!”

Suddenly the civilians aren’t civilians anymore—they take out guns and train them at Jae-ha’s head. Tom takes off his cat head, and of course it’s the agent he laughed at earlier that day.

Tom leads Jae-ha around the carousel, and Shi-kyung spots them. Guns come flying out from every direction, but so do Tom’s agents, who surround the secret service. Crap crap crap.

But then as if things weren’t bad enough, the baddies all rip open their jackets to reveal bombs strapped to their chests. Oh. Shit. Tom says go ahead and shoot, and he demonstrates by shooting one of his own men. He promptly explodes.

He announces that every bomb is wired to go off if the guy wearing it dies, and takes out a big trigger button as he orders everyone to drop their weapons and step back. They do as they’re told, with no other choice.

And then he reads a prepared speech for the camera, basically an angry attack at Jae-ha for using Hang-ah and stepping on North Korea’s pride. Oh, so this is you defending her honor? How helpful, but I think she’s got it under control there, cat.

Bong-gu has a direct connection to Tom via earpiece, and he actually directs him mid-speech to ask that the camera show Jae-ha’s terrified face. Dude, you are obsessed. He interrupts Tom’s speech to cut to the chase—his message to Jae-ha.

Tom hands Jae-ha the pre-recorded message from Bong-gu, claiming responsibility. Bong-gu watches eagerly, “That’s him, watching it right now, right?” He practically drools.

Hang-ah arrives just outside the park, running as she radios her backup. It’s Kang-seok! Whoooooo! And… whoa, is that a rocket launcher on your back, or are you just happy to see me?

And then! Young-bae sets up his sniper rifle from the top of the ferris wheel. NICE. The band is back together! Hang-ah looks down from the hill and her eyes widen at the sight below.

Jae-ha watches all of Bong-gu’s recording, barely holding back his terror. Please, don’t give him the satisfaction. He chucks the tablet on the ground in annoyance, “What’s he saying?” HA. I love that he’s smarter than the evil mastermind!

He looks Tom up and down, “Is Kim Bong-gu talking to you in that earpiece?” He turns to the camera, “He’s watching right?” Tom panics and takes out a gun from his cat belly. Jae-ha’s like, how much stuff do you have in there? Hee.

Jae-ha turns to the camera to give the best comeback ever: “Ya, Kim Bong-gu. If you’re going to work out your inferiority complex, do it right. What is this? Are you advertising to the entire world what a laughable ass you are? You can’t even show yourself so you send a video letter? What is this, Section TV? Are you shooting We Got Married? I. Don’t. Love you. So please stop, and go exercise. It’s really the best thing for a complex. Or go read a book. Work on cultivating your inner self. You overly self-conscious inferiority-complex-riddled ass!”

So. Satisfying. Bong-gu FLIPS out. “Kill him. KIIIIIIIIILL HIIIIIIIIIIIIIM! Detonate now!”

Boom! There’s an explosion, but it’s not the baddies. It’s Kang-seok, who busts through a wall to overtake the security station. He gets the lights on and the carousel moving again. It’s enough to throw the baddies into confusion, as they scramble to regain control.

And that’s when Sniper Young-bae fires at Tom’s trigger arm, and then takes out the surrounding gunmen, one by one. Yessss! Shi-kyung scrambles for a gun. But Hang-ah is faster, and she jumps onto the roof of the carousel, ready to make her move.

The cameras catch her, and everyone, including Mom and Secretary Eun, sees her. Kang-seok throws smoke grenades onto the carousel to give her cover, and she swoops in with one flying kick after another, to take out all of the gunmen singlehandedly.

Tom scrambles for the remote trigger and reaches out… and Hang-ah stomps on his hand and kicks the trigger away. She whips out her gun and sticks the barrel in his mouth. Dayum. Shi-kyung and the rest of the agents fight their way up and secure the bomber from her grasp.

Jae-ha watches as she turns and walks right off the carousel and into the night, like a superhero who’s done her work and doesn’t look back. It’s even got the dramatic smoke and everything. So badass.

She goes straight to her car to drive away, when a car pulls up in her path. Jae-ha gets out and stands in the road. She puts the car in park and then guns the accelerator, staring right at him. Ha. Nice way to let out some anger.

She shifts into drive and drives head on, but he doesn’t move or flinch. I love it. It’s his way of saying I’m not going anywhere. She stops a few feet short of turning him into a pancake and gets out of the car with a peeved look.

He asks, “Do you like me, or do you like Eun Shi-kyung?” She scowls, “I don’t know about that, but I do have someone I hate.”

Jae-ha: “Lee Jae-ha?” He reminds her of his famous vengeful streak. “I’m going to get revenge for those words.” She turns away, still fuming.

He takes a step closer. “Every morning, I’m going to kiss you. For revenge.” Hahaha.

“I’m going to follow you around all the time like a stalker, and buy you everything you want. I’ll never cheat. I will only look at you. From now on, I’ll never let you cry even one tear.” Which is of course exactly when she starts to cry. Aw.

He walks closer and wipes the tears from her eyes. “I’m going to make you the happiest queen in the world. And until the day I die, I will nauseatingly like only you. For revenge.” So adorable, the true-to-character, sweet-with-a-kick proposal.

And then, he gets down on one knee, and takes her hand in his. “Can you handle it, your highness?” She just looks down at him, crying more tears. He smiles, “Hey I’m officially proposing to you right now.”

She finally opens her mouth… to mutter that South Korean playboys are always smooth-talking with their stupid words, as she sniffles back tears. Hee.

He gets up and hugs her tight, as the cherry blossoms fall.

Now it’s time to deal with the baddies, starting with General Regrets-a-Lot, who demands payment from Club M because he held up his part of the bargain. Sort of. They don’t quite agree, and send his location to Hang-ah’s father, who doesn’t receive the help kindly, but does arrest the man with pleasure.

And then Bong-gu takes out his frustrations on his right-hand man, because… um… he can? What’s an impotent rage if you can’t share it with those closest to you?

Back home, news of the incident gets reported as “WOC members” saving the day, and Dong-ha sighs at the lack of naming names. Seriously, you save the day, and you don’t even get a mention on the news.

Secretary Eun releases an official statement on the question of Kim Bong-gu, as in who the hell is he, and he deflects to say that he’s nobody important, and that it’s a nickname the king invented to represent those who oppose reunification. Pffft. He apologizes to all the Kim Bong-gus of the world for misusing their name. Ha.

He calls Jae-ha to say that he got the press off that scent for now, and Jae-ha asks if anyone’s found the recording (of Bong-gu claiming responsibility) yet. They haven’t, but Secretary Eun reminds him that he doesn’t have the power to do anything with that evidence anyway.

He says that most big players already know that Kim Bong-gu is John Meyer, but they can’t do anything about it because it would mean war for their country. Jae-ha asks how long they’re just supposed to stand by, while he kills hyung, goes after Jae-shin, and now him. Secretary Eun calls him out, saying truth be told, Jae-ha is scared too—that’s why he hasn’t acted yet, why he hasn’t come forward about Bong-gu’s identity. URG. I hate you, old man!

Shi-kyung interrupts him to say it’s time to go home. Jae-ha walks down the train platform where the prime minister apologizes again for what happened while he was here. Jae-ha asks if he knows who Kim Bong-gu is.

He can tell by the look on his face that he does. “Let’s grow strong together.” Nice. He reaches out his hand, and the prime minister shakes it. Hey, enemy of my enemy can be an ally when it counts.

Hang-ah calls her father to say that she’s going now. He pouts that he doesn’t care, whatever, she’s just going to do what she wants anyway. Aw. Jae-ha boards the train car and snatches the phone from her.

He calls him “Father,” and promises to visit with Hang-ah after chuseok. Dad says he can’t handle the stress from his visits, given the international terrorist fiascos and whatnot, but Jae-ha insists they’ll be there, and leaves Dad smiling. Yay.

He asks why the long face, and she says that South Korea still scares her, and she’s worried about how she’ll be received. He takes her hand reassuringly.

They arrive at the palace and Mom and Secretary Eun are waiting in her room. Mom runs up and takes Hang-ah’s face in her hands, and tells her how sorry and grateful she is. Hang-ah says she should bow properly, and Mom says no, she should be the one bowing to Hang-ah, for saving her son’s life.

She leads her inside to her room filled with presents sent from well-wishers, from food to seaweed to bears and other gifts. She opens up a few, overwhelmed by the gestures, and then finds a note in one, written in blood? Creepy red ink? “Kim Hang-ah Die.”

HAHAHAHAHA. This show, it kills me. What a way to cut the saccharine. Mom quickly snatches that one out of her hands, but Hang-ah’s so happy she doesn’t even register it.

Jae-ha smiles, pleased at her warm reception, and Secretary Eun follows him out to say that that’s not really a lot of presents, and technically, fifty percent of the public still opposes the union. Jae-ha groans, “Ajusshi! Do you have to say things like that right now? We just got here!”

Secretary Eun just doesn’t want him floating around with his head in the clouds (or he delights in being a killjoy because he’s eeeeevil, take your pick) and Jae-ha assures him that he won’t, saying that Daddy Eun is just as un-fun as Shi-kyung.

“I know it’s just the beginning. I’m going to raise it—that power you talked about.” Secretary Eun smiles proudly despite himself. I do think that he believes he’s justified in everything he’s doing for the good of the monarchy. It’s just… you know what they say about the road to hell.

Shi-kyung goes right back to work like the toy solider that he is, gathering more intel on Club M. I don’t know why he has to be told this by someone else, but the princess is the one who holds the key to identifying her brother’s killer.

He goes to check on Jae-shin and finds her playing cards with her staff. She’s happy to see him and asks him to join the game, but he’s so wired from worrying about her that he ends up asking gruffly if this is all she’s been doing while he was gone, instead of trying to recover her memories.

She gets defensive and asks why he’s attacking her when he of all people knows what she’s going through. Shi-kyung: “So do you want my pity?” Ouch. She looks up at him with a stricken look, saying that she can’t force herself to remember.

But he challenges her, “Or is it that you don’t want to remember?” He calls her out for clinging to it as a weakness, to get more sympathy, to be treated with kid gloves by everyone around her.

He tells her that she has to face it, and even if the memories don’t come back, if she doesn’t deal with it, she’s just going to get worse and worse. “Please come back, Princess. Be bold, like you were before.”

But this is a tough love speech she’s not ready to hear, and she cuts him off to call and ask that Shi-kyung be replaced by another agent from now on. Nooo. She calls him a frustrating ass.

It stuns him so much that he stands through an entire meeting with Jae-ha lost in thought. He remembers every time Jae-shin called him frustrating in cute ways, culminating in the last one, meant to be an insult.

Jae-ha snaps him back to reality, and Shi-kyung asks, “Am I really that frustrating?” Aw, but you’re also adorably earnest! Jae-ha isn’t one to mince words, and confirms it, and Shi-kyung just sighs, resigned to his fate as a funless bot. Maybe we could install some party programs in your CPU.

Jae-ha then goes to Hang-ah, to fill her in on Kim Bong-gu, Club M, and everything that’s been going on. See, THIS is what I’ve been waiting for. The romantic declarations are all swoonworthy, but I love that he treats her as an equal, and goes to her for advice and support. It’s real, and lovely.

He tells her everything about Bong-gu—that he’s just one man, but more than just a man. He has endless money, with which he’s bought up everything. His modus operandi: “That power is justice.” Might is right? Yeah, that about sums it up. Evil bastards.

He says the whole world wants to see North and South tear each other apart. He spins the little globe on the table with a sigh, “There’s so much to do, but we’re so small.” Man, you can just see it on her face, like she’s watching him grow up in front of her.

He asks if she thinks they can do it—the WOC, getting married. She’s struck by his sincerity and his very kingly concerns, which is a side of him she’s never really seen before.

Suddenly she’s like waitaminute, “What’re you saying, that you’re NOT going to marry me?” Ha. He’s like, I am, I am, but she bolts up, “So if it gets difficult, are you just going to send me back? You know that’ll be the THIRD TIME!”

She rants, calling him a rat bastard, and he takes her hands, repeating that they will, he swears, what about now, next month? Hee. But she pulls her hands away and tells him to stomp out Bong-gu first: “If you can’t handle him, you’re not even a MAN. Why would I marry a guy like that?”

Oh nice. She’s totally turning it into a challenge for him. It’s brilliant. He has something to fight for, and gets a boost of confidence without being patronized. Plus it has the added benefit of leaving him all flustered. She says she’ll reject him if he doesn’t succeed, and he calls out after her, “I’ll do well!”

She storms into her room and calls Daddy, asking how long he’s known about Bong-gu. He whines at being woken up in the middle of the night and wonders how she knows, and she shouts into the phone that Comrade Jae-ha, a guy who laughs when people threaten him with bombs, is quaking in his boots.

“I’m not going to leave him be—the bastard who made my man this way!” She’s so cute. She starts yelling about how she’s going to slit his throat, and Dad tells her he’s already on it, with the research.

But research isn’t gonna cut it for Action Girl, and she basically orders Dad to find out where Bong-gu lives, lying that Jae-ha needs it for his plan. Thank you! Someone else who thinks just bombing the hell out of his fancy house should do the trick. I know, it’s probably not going to work, but I need someone to TRY.

Meanwhile, Jae-ha and Shi-kyung are off chasing another lead on Bong-gu—a girl at a club who sees him on a regular basis. They track her down, and Jae-ha goes in for the big seduction…

But he spins back on his heels to remind Shi-kyung that this is all in the name of The Plan. “The person I love is our Hang-ah. There is only Hang-ah… Just in case she says something, you have to be my witness!” Pfffft. Shi-kyung smiles and nods. I don’t know how he’s not busting a gut right now.

Annnnd, I was already laughing, but then you got a full shot with your shiny shoes, and now I’m on the floor.

Mission: Seduce-the-girlfriend-but-only-in-the-name-of-the-plan-if-Hang-ah-asks is a go.

Sometime later Bong-gu receives a care package in the mail, sent to his home address. It’s got a royal seal on it. He opens the letter from Jae-ha that says he sent a present, but not to bother opening it.

It requires a password, and Jae-ha wouldn’t want him to suffer trying to figure it out. He does give a hint though: “It’s something I have, that you don’t.” Taunting the villain never gets old. He closes the letter with, “But don’t open it. You’ll regret it.”

So of course he sits down with it right away. He’s so hooked. Also, I love the password game! Among the things he tries: royal seal, good looks (deciding that’s not true after all, ha), honor, youth, manners, a conscience.

Jae-ha tells Secretary Eun about the plan and says that now is the time to strike, and he’s going to do it together with Hang-ah. He asks for ajusshi’s help.

Bong-gu goes crazy (er, crazier) trying to open the box, and flings it at his minion to take an axe to it. Only of course it’s wired to explode if it’s tampered with. Have you never seen a spy movie? He refuses to let it be taken away.

The royal couple heads out to Hang-ah’s first public appearance since the hearings. Jae-ha asks if she’s ready, and she nods. He holds her hand one last time in the car, and then leads her up the red carpet hand-in-hand.

Bong-gu ponders the password, and then it hits him. He gets up with a start and whispers into the box, “People.”

It opens.

Jae-ha and Hang-ah reach the top of the steps, and then face each other for one last us-against-the-world look. Then they turn to face the cameras.

 
COMMENTS

WHAT’S IN THE BOX? Okay, sorry I had to get that Seven quote out of my system. I love the games Jae-ha plays with Bong-gu, knowing that curiosity will get the better of the maniacal bastard. So far he’s played every exchange with him perfectly—that carousel speech was such sweet vengeance, not to mention crazy brave, given the circumstances. And even in setting the password to “People,” it says so much about what Jae-ha understands about his adversary.

Sure, he has more money, more power than Jae-ha has. But the king has his people—from the woman he loves and his action wingman, to every last citizen in his kingdom, something that Bong-gu will never have. More than anything, I love that he’s come to acknowledge that a king can be more than a puppet, and that maybe he finally gets what hyung always said about the king belonging to the people—the crown is theirs, and it represents them. Though he might not have money or power, he has the might of the people, and perhaps he’ll find that when moved, they are a greater power than money can ever buy.

It was so satisfying to see Hang-ah and Jae-ha each be badass in their own ways when faced with danger. How much do I love that he’s the brains and she’s the brawn? I mean, REALLY. It doesn’t get any better than that. I wish we could’ve gotten an actual reunion scene with the WOC team post-rescue—they saved his life for crying out loud. But I’m going to tell myself that there were hugs and drinks and SNSD jokes offscreen somewhere.

The proposal was adorable, of course, but what’s great about this couple is that their everyday interactions are just as full of bickering cuteness as the big romantic moments are, so it’s not a departure from the norm. And I love that they’ve finally moved past fighting each other, so that they can fight the world together, hand in hand.

I usually don't watch k-dramas but I am blown away by the story, character development, script, and basically every little thing that goes into this show. Are the director/writers responsible for every little sigh, gesture, movement? I'm so blown away by what they put together. After just watching 3 to 4 dramas, I know what I find valuable in a drama and this show definitely hits in all the right places! and thanks for the recaps!

I am too blown away by the same things! I think we're super lucky to have a great team for K2H - PD, writer and wonderful actors. Love that the acting is subtle yet powerful. Love the witty lines. Love the symbolism. Love the original feel of the drama. Love the color saturation. I hope this drama is recognized for its merits but if not, it will always be a cult classic among fans (assuming the next 8 eps maintain this standard).

wow, those who posted pics on that shoot are soooo lucky!!!

i don't know about the others but i first noticed seunggi in a variety show strong heart then 1n2d and not his dramas or even knowing he was a singer but i loved his wittiness, he's humble old soul and bright appeal plus that one lone dimple going all the way to his eyes which i found cute for some reason. i already found him handsome already.

i think finally with his new haircut everyone can see that he is really handsome probably not so much on the features but more because he exudes what handsome is and i think people are surprise to see that when they finally see him in person :)

Since both you and I have been lapping up & lauding TK2H OST, I thought I'd share the following with you. I'm not into ballads: despite knowing that Seung-gi's a really good ballad singer I must've checked out just a couple of his songs. While I appreciate his talent his songs didn't move me. I stumbled upon his song titled 'Paradise' and lemme tell you....it's been on repeat ever since. HA!! It's soo different from his usual balladsy fare....the tone of his voice is really different as well...k, imma shut up before I continue my 'going-in-circles' praise.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIO3FIADtGA

Girl, looks are over-rated in any case. My favourites in K-entertainment who I've been actively following are Seung-gi and BigBang. Dae and GD are my faves from BB....again not really lookers...at the end of the day it's the personality that counts! Those ahjummahs are onto something, ne?!! :)

i must confess. i'm not really into his songs. :/ but i've heard most of it. LOL!!
this one has elements of rock or we can call it pop rock that's probably why he had a deeper voice than usual. love it !!! thanks!!

looks are really over-rated. :)
personally, i just want to see him in person that is all. as simple as that. i want to see that dimple if i can someday. that would be nice. lol.

I'm not so much into k-pop. i grew up watching japanese music particularly jrock and familiar with that music scene so when kpop exploded recently i wasn't mostly impress because frankly the japanese started it all and koreans are good watchers and are very creative in making things into their own..... anyway, it's all off topic already but when i saw daesung on FO i was curious and he basically introduce me to the others and the rest is history. i love love that boy and i'm glad all five of them are getting better and closer too.

i'm more on the korean variety shows than the music scene. :/

fighting seung gi and big bang.. yg!!! hehehe

woww!! You love BigBang as well!! haha. I saw Dae in What's Up and he was bloody adorable in it that I decided to check out BB....and, the rest they say is history! I myself try to stay away from Kpop since don't have much time to invest into yet another vice. But, yeah I love BB for the same reasons I now love and adore Seung-gi! If BB tours Canada I hope to attend their concert. Says the girl who's never been enamored enough to contemplate attending a Western musicians' concert!!

Hope you can see his dimple...oh and his fine self as well in person!! This guy can even speak decently fluent English....like, can he get any more perfect!! pffttt

i'm in arizona. i wish they would go in LA cause that's closer or NY . man, i love that city :)

I would love for big bang to do a parody of this drama!!! best one yet was SG. they all made me laugh so hard and daesung's adlib "smell"!!!! hahahaha. laughing just thinking about it.

i am hoping they might be able to convince ha ji won or seunggi (since they're closer ) to guest star in that :)

i think dramabeans ( or i hope she do ) would do a recap just for that!!! hahaha.

but seeing as they're having a world tour.... it's a wishful thinking . sigh :(

I agree with you about how looks are over-rated! I am too crazy about GD and I don't think he's physically attractive, but something about him makes him sooooo sexy. I think BB is the only group that I'll ever see in concert...if I could.

At first, SG didn't appeal to me either. But as I continue to follow his work, I am now a BIG fan.

YES! he looks so much so much better in person..

i have seen him upclose before.... i nearly faint when i saw him in person... He is so good looking in person and that's when i realised why SK citizens/1N2D members always commented he is good looking. i was one of those who commented that he is not good looking before i saw him in person,hahaha...

it could be that either he is not photogenic or the cameraman do not know how to take a good angle of him.

Trust me, see him for yourself and all of us will eat up our words about him not good looking... hehe

I am a great fan of action movies and it gives me a real HIGH whenever I get to watch them. Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Mission Impossible are just some of them. I have never watched a drama before in the same "high" and "thrill" like I feel when I watched those mentioned action movies. This drama gives me that kind of feeling. I LOVE THIS DRAMA not only for its action and thrilling contents....the romance gives it another angle of excitement.

In reality, is Tom and Jerry really shown in North Korea?
Because the last time I saw documentaries about north korea is that they only have one channel and all of this is about their DEAR leader. And they totally hate US because they are imperialist and kids are taught to hate America.

So that is why i don't understand why Tom and Jerry is existing in NK even though they have change their titles and names.

Or is it like they pretended that they made Tom and Jerry themselves just like how Kim Jong Il invented hamburgers?

Totally agree with the brilliance of the K2H writers. I was like diw wondering whether Tom and Jerry really exist in NK and it turns out to be real. Sooo cool.

I just realised there might be MORE to K2H than what we already know or understand. It's like another added layer of depth in the story with all the history, cultural differences etc. The writers are pure geniuses. I'm starting to think maybe for the writers it's like a spur of the moment creation that's hard to be replaced or do better. It's one of those defining moments in your career where you just have to do something daring like K2H and after that you'll have no regrets lol. If i'm a Korean this show would definitely bring me closer to try to understand the history of SK and NK.

It's actually political, they basically ripped off Tom and Jerry and gave it a different name (as correctly mentioned in the drama) and a slightly different look. And added political agenda to it, with Tom being the stupid bigger cat representing America and Jerry the smaller smarter mouse being NK that always outsmarts the bigger bully.

And it was a hit especially for the kids, and that was their targeted audience, subliminal social engineering from young.

Took a cross faculty for political science and read this before so that's why your question ringed a bell. You are welcomed.

Another link from me:
http://www.openingupnorthkorea.com/archives/184
Similar thought with
jessly article, but this one thought shorter, clearly said that Tom & Jerry is a form of propaganda. In fact if you googling Tom and Jerry north korea you'll find similar article,

Apparently, each acts or words out from Jae Ha's mouth has 'background meaning' -remember choco pie?-

Last day I'm digging about 'chicken farm', you know, I'm LOL-in when seeing Jae Ha's photo in chicken farm, but then I realize, why must chicken farm?
And Tada...after a bit googling, apparently North Korea is very proud about its chicken farm, and according this article, south korea even have its chicken farm in NK territory, well it's 2007 article, but still: http://www.thepoultrysite.com/poultrynews/13268/south-korean-chicken-farm-in-north-korean-territory

More over, if you googling 'Kim Jong Il' 'chicken farm' you'll find that visits chicken farm is KJI routine schedule for every year, even after he was diagnosed with stroke (this seem also 2007 article): http://www.metro.co.uk/news/world/442077-kim-jong-il-did-have-stroke

Which mean, visits chicken farm is actually isn't weird at all when you visit north korea, because their big leader(passed away) do it regularly.
Le sigh, when we don't know this, we just keep laughing right? :)

Looking at the number of comments on this post, number of blogs showing their love for TK2H and the video of support from the international fans...it ironically made me remember the time when Dramabeans posted the final casting for this drama.

The comments on that post were some of the most hurtful comments made about Seung Gi. Looking back, it sort of paralled what is happening to Jae Ha. He initially was thought of by the citizens as a good for nothing prince, He may be handsome, of royal blood but they wanted him out of the palace (although Jae Ha's action did nothing to contradict their opinion) This is the same as Secretary Eun's opinion.

But 12 episodes later, Jae Ha is slowly proving thst he may just be the King that the country needs. Although, still not perfect, he is smart, with the right amount of crazy, passionate and with conviction...did I say handsome and now a reformed rake :)

Now Seung Gi 12 episodes later, may not be perfect in every scene, but has proven that with HJW he is oozing with chemistry and that with his acting he just proves that he owns the character of King Jae He.

Note to Seung Gi, you converted more hearts because you were not afraid to try. Through your hard work and dedication, this is only shows that you are truly a remarkable person. That for Airens, is what makes you special and handsome in our eyes. Fighting!

Yup. Somehow I saw the link under the related posts after Ep 6 recap, read through almost every comment, and smiled at the end because critics get to eat their own words about how Seunggi doesn't know how to act, how he'd be totally overshadowed by Ha Ji-won, among other things. 12 episodes in, and look how much he has grown.

Yeah, there were some vicious attacks on his character (how he's a fake and all....i was totally bewildered. Did they know him in person that they were making such conclusive claims?! :O) and looks (it's a sad day when someone's natural looks are the point of contention!). I remember JB had to delete comments cuz they had become quite vicious. Despite not being a fan of his at the time I still liked him. I had watched BL and thought he did a serviceable job and caught his variety shows on and off. Nobody deserves to be disparaged when they are such hard workers!! Yes, critique them on their work not personality and looks....oh well!!

Anyways, I'm glad he took this momentous role that has viewers eating out of his hand! Surely, there IS a reason his colleagues are mighty impressed with him!!

Well, those who focus on looks are simply shallow. It will come to them, cos if that's how they judge others, they will be judges in the same way.

In any case, we shouldn't bother ourselves will such infantile, immature comments. Seunggi doesn't. That's why he hasn't gone under the knife (plastic surgery). In fact, I'm amazed at the way he handles all the criticism. I think the fact that he doesn't have a face book account or twitter helps.

The story can take so many turns and it hurts my heart thinking what if its a bad ending for some of our favorite charcaters?!?

Hope you've recuperated completely! Don't think a sick body can endure swooning continuously whenever Seung-gi and/or JJS are on-screen?! :P

Just had to ask 2 questions to hundreds of posters you know
who you are.

Are you Full? How does Crow really Taste?

These questions are in good fun, but seriously, I just finished reading all the Negative and Insulting yes Insulting comments
that are posted on the thread for the official notice of LSG being confirmed as the king for this great drama.

Although we are all entitled to our opinions, I was left horrified and saddened by Too many of the posts.

LSG owns this role, and no matter how much I think about it, or how much I like the other actors considered for this role, I honestly cannot picture them owning JH's character or shining half as bright as he does. His portrayal of JH holds about 75% of this dramas whole appeal for me personally, combining it with all the other great elements we all agree on provided by this drama and all involved. His age was brought up, the other actors are too old for this character, and could never pull off the JH we saw at the start, but LSG could, and now he is pulling off the more matured JH without a hitch. He is brilliant in this role.

Im sorry to him for all the Negative he had to indure, and grateful for those who wanted to give him the chance to show us all what he can do. If I was not already a fan before
this drama, I would be now. and to those who said he cant sing. WTH!!

thanks to this great site, and to all involved in this great Drama, including HJW and her comments placing him above others she has worked with.

I am all for giving actors a chance so I was disappointed about the negative comments too...some of them too harsh. I myself questioned if LSG was a good fit for this role since his previous projects were not serious characters. And you are absolutley correct that LSG owns this role. Although I am a huge Cha Seung Won and Won Bin fan...I seriously couldn't see them playing Jae ha now. Initially, I really wanted either one of them and was devastated upon learning that they had both declined the offer, but now seeing how the writer gradually builds Jae Ha's character, I'm thankful that LSG got the role instead. LSG has earned my greatest respect. I mean, from the beginning, I held off watching MGIAG because LSG just doesn't appeal to me. After months and months, my friend finally convinced me to watch and I feel in love with him.

I hope all the negative commentators will now see how talented LSG is. And if they don't, we'll...like you said they are entitled to their own opinions. I'll just take it as it's their lost because LSG definitely put on a great show.

well said! His first drama I saw was mgiag then blossomed into bl and now k2h. He has improved tremendously!

I never thought LSG was a bad actor (and I've always enjoyed his variety stuff) but I never imagined he could be this good.

Almost every scene he's in, his presence seems to up the intensity level- there's this crazy chemistry he seems to have when playing against another actor. I guess it must be that undefinable x-factor that makes someone a star regardless of looks etc.

Considering his relative inexperience and young age I'm really excited see how he matures as an actor, I think K2H has just begun to show his potential.

Right said JenJen!
I always thought he was a okay actor but never thought he could steal my heart with just acting!

Over my two years in this kdramaland, there are lots of actors who stole my heart for their looks but for their acting, its only lee min ho and lee seung gi in my book!

Only when theyu both act, do I see thousand other things hidden in their eyes that makes me feel like they are real characters!

Lee Seung Gi really won me over in the bridge scene where he realises his hyung's death and steps over to the bigger pedastal!

Agree! Lee Seung Gi IS Jae Ha. Can't imagine someone else playing that role. And like he said in the drama, it's his destiny. So glad he took on this role.

And I totally agree that Seunggi owns Jae Ha's role; it's his destiny to play as Lee Jae Ha.

Thanks a lot. I read some and just laughed, those are perfect examples for never underestimating anybody. At the beginning, a lot of people said it is hard to image SG to be the king. Now it is hard to image who else could play the king. All the worries about the age, the acting skill are gone. Now we have a shining role called Jae Ha attracting a lot of people.

Welcome to the club! I liked him in MGIAG! So now I am absolutely gaga, in a maternal way :-D over him!

From the tones of the majority of the negative comments reacting to the casting news, they were not from leveled headed, unbiased people.

I just ran away when I sampled a few. As it's impossible to have a calm and interesting discussion with people like that.

One lesson I learned was that when I criticize any works or performances, I try my hardest to do it in a non-personal way, and I think carefully before I post anything.

What LSG had to face when he's considering this role was not just doubts about his acting ability or whether he was a good match to HJW. He knew there were big risks involved in a drama about the divided Korea. He knew the chance of success was not high compared to dramas following the traditional family values themes (such as BL). However he still took the challenge. He earned my respect and gratitude right there.

Like you guys said, I cannot imagine any other person as Jae Ha. LSG owns Jae Ha. What a great role and what a great show!

“He earned my respect and gratitude right there.” - agree with you, it needs a lot of courage to take this role, and he is the man.

I totally agree with you. I didn't realize initially the stakes that were involved in the drama, but i do now. In the words of my elder daughter, "Only SG has the balls to do this drama." I seriously think that some of the older and more prominent actors declined the role cos they KNEW what the stakes were. So kudos and my admiration and respect all the cast, esp LSG and HJW!!!

The fact that he's known as Korea's younger brother and his squeaky clean image also must be taken into account when considering the stakes. The Korean audience can be interestingly possessive about those they love....viz. kinda a scary notion to me!! By taking on this mature role not only is he trying to distance himself from the boy-next-door image but acclimating the Korean audience that if and/or when he does something risque in the future they, hopefully, won't go into an apoplectic shock!!

Let's not forget the meta: Korea's younger brother playing a King in an alternate Korea wherein he falls in love with a North Korean special agent and proactively works towards the re-unification of the two Koreas!! hahaaa

Actually, she hasn't watched it yet! She has only limited herself to reading the recaps as she has final term exams. She said that TK2H will be the first drama she's going to watch after her last paper, which is tomorrow! (Although she couldn't resist ep 6!)

Funny thing is, although she was the one who 'introduced' LSG to me, I'm a bigger fan than her now. In fact she's going to Korea this July for a Korean emersion programme and hoping to see LSG. She's already planned what she wants to say to him if she should be so fortunate to meet him - that her mum's a bigger fan than her. I wish I could join her at the end of her emersion programme, but, sigh, with work and family commitments, most likely not!
