KBS2 Drama "King's Face" Episode 19 Full Video

KBS2 Drama Kings Face Episode 19 Full Video

As inhibitions lower, the tension rises and that is the jolt that "The King"s Face" needed. Characters make definite decision about their courses of action and that brings rivalries to the fore - rivalries make for intrigue and excitement.

The best change was found in Do-chi. He"s been wishy-washy for some time now as his conscience and romantic attachment to Ga-hee has made him vacillate. But this episode saw him decide not to hold back when it comes to Ga-hee, and that made him much more dangerous - and much more interesting. He needed it. Frankly, he was boring before this. He plotted and planned to no avail because he lacked real conviction.

The same can be said for Gwanghae in that he has begun to see that he and his father are truly at odds when it comes to their ideas of governance. Gwanghae is bolder in his decision-making and clearer in his perception of his weak father. Yes, he respects his father and wants him protected, but he does not wish to follow in his political footsteps. These choices mirror Gwanghae"s historical penchant for keeping peace and working with surrounding nations to do so.

Gwanghae"s relationships with those around him is one of the more pleasant aspects of "The King"s Face" that I haven"t much mentioned. He treated people well and they do the same for him. That behavior is reflected in his diplomatic policies. There is an openness in him that is well-portrayed by Seo In-guk. It"s a wonderful challenge for an actor who hasn"t had much to work with in regards to the script. But Seo makes palpable connections with those he works with and that makes him effective on screen.

Then we have King Seonjo who is a very useless, petty, self-absorbed man. He, however, is falling in love with Ga-hee and that makes him a useful writing tool as well as a major playing card for Do-chi. It makes him more vulnerable to manipulation and with Ga-hee and Do-chi becoming more determined to execute their goals, King Seonjo is a veritable pawn. Lee Sung-jae is wonderful as he weak, manipulated king and makes him a character to enjoy on screen despite his utter uselessness as a ruler.

Why the show is only now coming to the points that were advertised at the start of "The King"s Face" such as the love triangle between the king, Gwanghae, and Do-chi, and, the tension between father in son, I do not know. Writing them into the plot more strongly and much earlier would"ve benefitted the show. At least it has happened now.

KBS2 Drama "The King's Face" Episode 18 Review and Full Video

KBS2 Drama The King's Face Episode 18 Review and Full Video

Fresh blood has been brought onscreen in the form of the hilarious, life-filled Lim Ji-gyoo. He colors all the scenes he"s in with humor, which doesn"t fit the current tone of the show. It does, however, liven up "The King"s Face".

Lim Ji-gyoo plays Heo Gyun, a Joseon merchant who has traveled the lands north of Joseon, Manchuria and the Ming Empires, gathering information and making friends. His character is a font of knowledge of the world outside Joseon as well as a quirky sidekick to Gwanghae"s hero. It pits him against Gwanghae"s trusty eunuch, Young-soo, as number one sidekick, and that is just fun. Lim always plays the most entertaining sidekicks.

Aside from the face, Ga-hee is settling into court life and the court is struggling to acclimate to her. Lady Kim, the head consort, is insanely jealous of her replacement. As the mother of four sons, she aspires for one of them to be king. Since Sinseong passed, her eyes are now set on Jungwon who is cunning and set to avenge his mother"s humiliation at being pushed aside for Ga-hee. He is more dangerous than Sinseong was and hopefully that"ll make him more interesting than Sinseong and Imhae, the two brothers who were in line to push Gwanghae from the throne. Imhae is still pathetic and dimwitted. He is like a royal placeholder for the bloodline and nothing more. Despite the fact that he is historically inane, such a character can still be used better than he has been. The introduction of Jungwon into the running has made Imhae less useless.

Then there is the streak of jealousy running through the "The King"s Face". The king is jealous of any time that Ga-hee spends with any other men, which only means its a matter of time before he discovers her relationship with Gwanghae. Lady Kim is jealous of Ga-hee as the favored concubine. Im-hae is jealous of Jung-won as the favored son. As political tensions rise, they fan the flames of jealousy. The tension is a breeding ground for jealousy.

The foreign relations are bolstering the intrigue of "The King"s Face". Again, this show"s dependence on the historical prestige of the story of Gwanghae is frightening. It has very little intrinsic motivation. Give me more.

KBS2 Drama "The King's Face" Episode 17 Review and Full Video

By: Dramabeans

 KBS2 Drama The King's Face Episode 17 Full Video

This episode of "The King"s Face" vacillated between good and boring. The scenes that showed antagonism between the main characters had impact while the more romantic scenes were exceedingly dull.

Romance between Gwanghae and Ga-hee has been nothing more than longing stares and soulful ballads. There is little to show a romantic connection between them so this episode had to flashback to their one, stale kiss in order to spice up their chemistry. When Gwanghae discovers that Ga-hee has become his father"s concubine, the scene is so anticlimactic that it was humorous. It lacked the gravity that it should"ve had because there was no real romantic buildup and the anticipation that preceded her ultimate decision was drawn out for far too long. When Gwanghae passed out from the shock, it seemed like overkill - to put it mildly, it was ridiculous.

What is interesting about Ga-hee"s decision to become the king"s concubine is that it puts her at direct odds with Do-chi. They have opposite goals: he wishes to destroy Gwanghae; she wishes to help him to the throne. But they both made similar journeys along difficult paths to come to the inside of the palace. They began as friends and ended up as enemies. I want to see how their former relationship colors their new one. That would add much needed depth to their storylines.

King Seonjo has, as of late, been making more appearances, showing that he is a coward and letting other people take on his responsibilities for him. Pitting this weak king against Gwanghae"s magnetic personality is one of the inherent literary beauties of the story. What makes the king strong is those around him; what makes Gwanghae strong is his spirit. The juxtaposition of the two family members and enemies is something the show seems to be using. The king allows Do-chi to do his dirty work; the prince does his work himself. Involving Ga-hee as the king"s concubine may change the dynamic between father and son; it should, but the writing in this show hasn"t been strong enough or consistent enough for me to expect it.

Do-chi and Gwanghae"s rivalry is a good one. They have loaded conversations that grow into action. The scenes between them are purposeful and engaging. On the other hand, there are strange, disjointed scenes that depict what Gwanghae"s men are doing in Manchuria. These don"t have much impact at all. In fact, it would"ve been better to narrate them than to spend the time and money filming them.

With Ga-hee in the palace, "The King"s Face" enters its third stage. I"ve lost hope that the quality will improve. I can only hope that the import of the original story is able to carry it through.
