Wow that Yi Cheon can kick some serious butt for an older guy!
But on the other hand, if those were astronomy guys he was up against, well...not exactly brawny goons, are they. And carrying their name tags around when they're trying to kidnap people? Major duh. (Was Jeon Bacheon the archer who shot those two younger scholars in the previous episode? It was a night scene and I couldn't tell.)
Okay, so the globe wasn't thrown into the river after all! Serves me right for complaining about that. Still, if everybody else thought it was, they should have sent a diver in for it. But that was a nice surprise, fun plot twist.
Out of all the books Youngsil had in that shed, the one book he needed just happened to be one of the two that Seokgu salvaged? Dang, how about them odds! Youngsil should be a gambler. Oh well, gotta love television.
I do like that these episodes have been running in the 50-minute range. 60-70 minutes is just too long for me.
It's not a bad plot right now but I'd still much rather have something actually historical. It's just too far-fetched. I'll stick with it, though, especially since YouTube makes it easy to watch.
This whole angle about Yu Taeksang being an anti-Joseon rebel...any truth to it? I assume not....
And I gotta say, I think the character is miscast. Im Hyuk, I've seen him play everything from a general to a diplomat to a monk, and he's always done a good job. But as a scheming subversive, well, he just isn't right for that part. Or am I the only one who feels that way?
