On Saturday, June 13, the final episode for Henry and Yewon aired and featured special guests Hollywood actress Chloe Moretz and singer Eric Nam. During the show, the four stars went to a karaoke room (noraebang) and had a great time. 15"s Park Jimin and U-KISS"s Kevin also joined in on the fun making for a celebrity-filled good time for all.
Laughter aside, the mood eventually turned a little more serious as Henry serenaded his wife Yewon in the karaoke room. Henry chose to sing "So Nice" by indie-acoustic duo 10cm. "Yewon ah, I love you," added Henry.
Yewon was truly touched as she did not expect Henry to sing to her. Yewon loved his sincerity and also could not hide her emotion. "I felt like I was being proposed to" is what Yewon said.
"Hogu"s Love" isn"t just bad. It"s so bad, on the total narrative level, that I haven"t even been bothering to nitpick. National swim teams take their marching orders from government commissions, not ad agencies. Incidentally,national sports commissions have zero tolerance for even the appearance of sexual impropriety. And pregnancy is a big physical deal- no one in a serious one-dimensional sport like swimming can expect to have one (let alone two) kids during their peak years and expect to still be competitive. I only mention these facts now for the sake of completion. So many critical errors in "Hogu"s Love", sofew wordsto attack them.
"Hogu"s Love" is directed by Pyo Min-soo, written by Yoon Nan-joong and features Park Soon-cheon, UEE, Choi Woo-sik, Seulong, Lee Soo-kyeong-I, Jeong Won-joong and many more.
His agency released a statement saying “It’s true that Song Joong Ki received an offer for the lead role in Kim Eun Sook’s ‘Descendants of the Sun.’ However, nothing has been decided yet.”
Song Joong Ki left for his military service after establishing himself as a star in popular projects such as “A Werewolf Boy” and “The Innocent Man.”
“Descendents of the Sun” comes from the writer of “Secret Garden,” “Heirs,” and “Lovers in Paris,” all big hits for SBS. For the first time, writer Kim Eun Sook’s drama will be airing on a different network, on KBS. “Descendents of the Sun” will be helmed by “Secret” PD Lee Eung Bok.
The politics that Seon had to play, however, were less-than-stellar. At first, when the secret document held sway, the politics were interesting. But then they started to follow a pattern that became boring and predictable. Characters were highlighted, then dropped, most notably Ji-dam, a supposed main character who was stuck on the back shelf and left to gather dust. For a microsecond in this last episode her dialogue reflected the spirited woman that graced the screen in the earlier episodes. It was a pretty horrid oversight.
Also, the show was more about Seon"s vision of Joseon than his father"s. King Yeongjo"s rule, in this show, was very reactionary rather than proactive - he was very protective of the monarchy. I wanted to see more of his ruling style conflicting with Seon"s and how their beliefs did not line up. It did show up just enough to fuel a few arguments between them. The premise of the show was based on political differences between the two men, but it became much more a battle between Seon and the ruling class.
This final episode was very emotional, full of tears, and quite heavy. It spiraled towards Seon"s death and highlighted the love between Seon and Yeongjo. Han Seok-Kyu"s tears were incredibly powerful as he made the painful decision to kill his son in order to retain order in Joseon and protect his grandson. While the episode itself was effective, it would"ve had more punch if the drama as a whole had supported it.
Jae-yeol: “Hello, this is Jang Jae-yeol. I’m sure many of you already know, but I’m suffering from a mental illness. The doctors say my condition is rather common with one out of every hundred suffering from it, and that it’s not terminal, but one where complete recovery is possible. I plan to do my best, believing in those words… because what I can do for those I love is to never give up hope no matter what may come.”
Hae-soo is tuning in on the plane while Mama Ok-ja and Jae-bum listen in at home. Jae-yeol says he’d like to address his usual sign-off to himself; he’d realized that he always asked how his listeners felt and bade them a good night, but never said those things to himself.
So he asks tonight’s listeners to do the same—to ask themselves, “Are you really okay?” and bid themselves goodnight. Staring at his reflection, Jae-yeol signs off, “Good night, Jang Jae-yeol.”
I haven’t been able to pick this back up since I put it on hold but word on the street is that it’s a lovely ending. That just might be the motivation I need to finish it.
