Big problem with last night's airing in Philadelphia. The station did a hop, skip and a jump from Ep 59 to 66! Eek!
I didn't notice the episode number in the beginning but it didn't take long to realize the "time jump". I'm sure they will show us the correct episode this weekend and repeat the one we already saw. You know how that goes.
A few years back, my TAN satellite station accidentally did something like this. It took me a minute or two to realize “Hey, this isn’t the right episode!” and at almost exactly the same moment, the video freeze-framed, the picture went blank . . . and then suddenly the correct episode started running!
Boy, was last night's ep# 67 badly edited. In one scene the Kim led rebels are fighting for the palace and in the next scene Kim is trying out the throne. In the next scene, you see the IE,some guards and the Emperor and Empress running in the woods and you learn that old Attendant Go was killed. And the IE who is a crack shot with the bow doesnt aim at Sagamun but hits the guy next to him ,,twice!!! I really want to see Gang Jo shove his spear through KIm's eye for killing Hyangbi.
Latina, I think I read on this site that the shows in Korea are 60 minutes long. Since they are only 50 minutes here, they have to cut out 10 minutes per show which leaves some episodes very badly chopped.
Hi, Dod, Mik, and Jojo, thanks for the welcome! Korean drama is really addictive. the IE is mine first hystorical drama, and I think it's really well done. the post is wondeful, some people might think I'm crazy, I can see a Korean, because I start to ask about if they watch korean drama. I will keep reading you guys
... some people might think I'm crazy, I can see a Korean, because I start to ask about if they watch korean drama....
Hah, hah, so funny latina. I know what you mean. In my building are a lot of Korean students who go to the University of Chicago, and every time I see one, I feel like they're part of my family and look them over to see if they are eating right. Or, if they have bad manners, I feel like thumping them and saying, "Think of your family!" like the ajummas do to teenagers on the Korean shows.
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."
hi BO, you are right, the best part is I don't speak Korean, but I know some words from watching the dramas, and they look at me like they can believe that I'm able to recognize some words, or a least a little idea what they're talking about.
latina - ajk provides incredibly complete summaries of each IE episode right on this thread. If you are watching on WMBC Channel 63 in NJ, about one quarter of each episode is cut due to their fitting in 60 plus minutes into 50....you can watch the complete episode online - I use viikii.net.
Re: your questions - the child that Saila jumped with is supposedly Ryang, the child of Dokyun and Sa Gamun - disguised as the prince so the prince will be saved to resurrect the empire that Kim Chiyang did not....
I think Mun Inui revealed Kim Chiyang's identity just to save his own skin - but who knows....

latina, Once again the editors butchered the ep. They cut two pivotal scenes that were shown last Sun in the previews. One was Kim telling Saila to take Ryang who is Sagamun & Okey Doky's baby not the prince. The other was the scene of Sagamun getting killed which I really wanted to see. I think those two scenes were more integral to the story line than seeing the freaky Emperor of Liao gettijng pissed that his general failed in the attack. That was a given.
Episode 64 – aired Saturday night in a very snowy Philadelphia
I surprising enjoyed the entire episode. Looks like things are heating up with Kim Chiang’s plans. Pretty astute of Sagamun to figure out Gang Gamchan had been stopping in a particular town, hence Prince Daeryang must be in the area. I'm wondering how Dokyun's 'bad feeling' about continuing will turn out.
Still we had a few far-fetched moments: the secret tunnel that ran all the way from the temple to someone’s backyard: an amazing engineering feat! Cheonchu telling Mokjong, if you didn’t want to be Emporer why didn’t you just stop, was a groaner. She must have a memory problem. How many times did she demand that he keep with it?!
Cheonchu’s shock over Mokjong’s affair was pretty deep. She looked devastated.
I loved the older monk’s premonition of darkness in the sky and his subsequent command to not eat the rice. Mysterious but cool how it worked out.
