I am always fascinated by the meanings of names. Does Dongmyeong mean anything? I believe it's the name of the building where the gold-chasers live. I also remember the Dongmyeongchun (think that's the spelling) League in DaeJoyoung.
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."

The 6 o' clock show is getting better imo but I agree that I really like this show now. At first I thought all the characters were over the top and silly, but now I really look forward to each episode.

but there's a reason for all their 'silliness'. That's why even before you guys started the first episode (from a person who watched well in advance) I asked that you guys to think about the 'Principle of Causality'. It's going to be quite apparent in the upcoming episodes. After the final episodes, go read dramabeans/javabean's commentary on the final 2 episodes and relate that to the 'Principle of Causality' and things seem to all make sense.
If anyone is wondering...MisterX (X who used to post on twitchfilm.net) placed this drama as the #3 drama on his list of 2007 dramas (it only comes behind #2 White Tower and #1 Conspiracy in the Court).
Writer Park Yeon Seon says that she's never thought of writing seasonal dramas, but this is one she would be willing to have a 2nd season of if and only if the cast is the same (requests by fans for a 2nd season). And I know Korean fans are working real hard on convincing KBS to release a Director's Cut for the drama (the director is willing, but needs KBS's approval/support).
I didn't like this drama at first either, actually I was confused about what was happening. I really like all of the characters even the gangster guy. I am hoping he turns out to be a good guy and not the evil person he seems to be.
