Contradictory to my post earlier, Queen Inhyun’s Man is not so perfect afterall.
Hoping tonight’s EP won’t disappoint.
I miss perfect Kim BoongDo. I miss their almost perfect love story.
I still love the off-screen chemistry of Ji Hyun Woo and Yoo In Na, but HeeJin and BoongDo.. Kinda disappointing.
I need Mr Kim Boong Do of perfection, back.
Kinda bashing KBD here, so please refrain from reading if you think you can’t handle it! I still love KBD though!
Well basically, EP 11-12 was slow moving, and it didn’t quite have anything i loved. Maybe i’ve seen too many BTS pictures of those lovey dovey scenes already, i got bored, or that the plot was going anywhere. I decided it was the latter.
High expectations with the script writer got me no where. I was expecting someting substantial from Writer Song in ep 11-12, hoping that BD will return to Joseon for some important business regarding his business in Joseon by ep 12, but he didn’t. All he did was to go back and do stuff regarding his life in 2012.
Kim Boong Do was no longer the same KBD i knew from EP 1-10. I appreciated everything he did from 1-10, but gosh… Honestly, the night he asked Heejin to stay, left me with the word corny(or the H substitute). You got that innocent girl to stay with you, by kissing her and making her charmed by you… Let’s not talk about anything that might have happened after that… I’m not a fan of bed scenes, especially for my innocent couple. Okay anyway, the point was, you made her stay, and you left her there and returned to Joseon most of the night. What’s the point?
What was even worse… When Heejin “threw” the talisman… i was feeling as bad as HJ.. Kim Boong Do appeared as Mr. Perfect to me, prior to these episodes. But the moment he gave that expression, filled with anger, as if he was going to leave her forever if she actually threw that talisman, oh boy. At that moment, the image of Mr perfect was deleted. Well, fine his human too, and that makes the drama more realistic… because nobody is perfect. So I get where his coming from. Joseon was his life, and it would be like he lost everything once that talisman is gone. But…….. i can’t help but feel disappointed. I wished the scene was never shown.
Honestly, i don’t know how else Boongdo should react to that scene. I think it was the right and only reaction that i can expect from him… because i know how important Joseon is to him. It’s his home. Not being able to return home? That sucks. I can’t expect him to be calm, or nice or anything knowing his talisman is gone. But i didn’t want him to have that reaction, despite knowing he should only have that reaction. Stupid but, the writer should have done without that scene.
Honestly, if i missed 11-12, i wouldn’t have missed a thing. Yes 11-12 had to be there, for the lovey dovey scenes before the heartbreak that comes and all…. i agree, but then… I don’t know. If i were to be in HJ’s position, i did be broken. Whatever Boongdo said about taking responsibility at the end of 12 didn’t matter anymore. The first and initial reaction he had when he thought he couldn’t return to Joseon anymore, was his pure and true reaction, the reaction he would have if Heejin really threw the talisman. Imagine if she really did, what would have happened? The worse thing wasn’t about how BD was, but how he made HJ feel…
No matter what he did after that, how he thought sincerely after that, how he came to the conclusion of wanting to take responsibility of her.. I don’t know any more. Because to me, what it appears to be now is his part of being a responsible Joseon man. Well maybe his heart truly wants it, but it’s me i guess. I live with the idea that “the initial reaction, is forever what the heart wants”. Yeah he redeemed himself with his sorry look after that… He was truly sorry. I know that. I felt that. And that probably woke him up… got him thinking about being responsible, and staying with HJ forever.
Just so you know, i am a person that can love a drama today, and forget about it tomorrow. But don’t worry, i won’t forget about Queen Inhyun’s Man’s awesomeness. Just trying to say how fickle I am, hence the great disappointment you see.
But then again, i think they made KBD like that, because of what Yoon Wol says: The talisman will become a curse if there are other deep desires…..
As i said earlier, i truly believe that KBD’s fate was to stay in 2012. So everytime he returns to Joseon, he was going against fate. All will end when he stays in 2012 for good. And he needs to figure that out. Or one day, he might just die, and not be saved by the talisman.
He comes close to it in EP13, but he will be saved by our modern day hospital and technology.
Anyway, so what did ep 11-12 do for you? Yay, or Nay? I’d like to hear my opinions about it.
Please forgive me regarding my discontent, cause i’ve been rewatching my favourite, most perfect kdrama ever, and that brings my expectations up again, which is so unfair to QIHM. *sorry*
Don’t get me wrong, i still love Kim Boong Do. Just………… he changed a little, which is better for the OTP(more scenes of them), but not the same BoongDo as before. I still love QIHM. No matter what happens to the show, it’ll be one of the best for this year for me. Cause 1-10 did it all for me.
Meanwhile, I shall just rewatch my favourite love story again. *off to watch CYHMH OTP*
Anyway, anyone wanting to recommend an underrated drama to me? I’m thinking of Soulmate(2006), by Lee Soo Kyung and Shin Dong Wook. Highly recommended by the few who watched it, so i’m so tempted to watch it as well.
