Yes, Cheonchu was Wang Gun’s granddaughter, but much of the story presented in this series was far off from actual history. That was one of the problems people had with this series. On the other hand, there was plenty of action.
I hope Channel 35 re-runs a historical drama. It would be terrible to not have something on the air. (Have you seen the General board about KBS programs being yanked from the air in Chicago?)
Wang welcome back! Here in New Jersey IE is finished. I really liked, I sad that I didn't watch DJY. I hope kbs will rerun some of the past historical drama. I would like to know any opinion about how Hunae was potraited as a really patriotic of just hungry for power, mainly because of the last episode when she said that she was to bring back her lost son (Jin) to be an emperor, when she lost power because she didn't want it to do it before....
I got to see all of four episodes of TIE but I could tell it had a lot of action and fighting and such.
I DVR'd the episode and set the timer to end at 11:06 but it ran longer than that and I missed the final moments. I saw up to the point where Jin rides off into the sunset and they zoom in on The Iron Empress as the announcer starts with a speech.
That was it, and it's not as though I know anything about what happened before a couple of Sundays back, but what did I miss? Did they say anything about finding out who killed the King? Did the disgraced guy get his name back? Do we know?
As for what's on next, I checked the AOL TV listings and starting tonight (Super Bowl Sunday) will be THREE BROTHERS.
No sword fights, no flaming arrows and as far from Wang Ghun, Dae Joe Yeoung and The Iron Empress as you can get. In others words, wake me when it's over.
wangdangman: See ajk's synopsis for Ep 78 for the ending.
I was thoroughly confused when Cheonchu shows up at the Jurchin camp: no we don't have the crown prince, yes we do have Dokyun' son, yes we do have the crown prince but you can't see him. Next scene: Cheonchu is in a room with the crown prince and Dokyun. Yes he's your son, no he's my son. I did like the interesting historical tidbit from the narrator about the future Jurchin leader being of Goryean or Shilla decent.
It seems a lot of time was spent trying to explain that Gang Jo didn't really depose King Mokjong, but that history will not remember it so. Same goes for Cheonchu's reputation. I wonder if there really is conflicting historical information about these two.
I was bummed to see the military officers, Yang Kyu, Kim Sukheung & Ha Gongjin, killed by the Khitans and to see Mokjong's attendant, Yu Chungjeong, poisoned.
I hope we don't have to wait too long for a new historical drama.
