I enjoyed the comments from the stars of the series. It was great to see them in their street clothes. Someone mentioned in one of the later recaps that this drama was filled with beauty and it most certainly was. I cannot recall any other drama where there were sooo many hot men and beautiful women! We missed hearing from Kang Ha Neul (Wook) and the princess we love to hate Kang Han Na (Yeon Hwa).
As always Lee Joon Gi was handsome, gracious and speaking in his sexy deep voice! He has lost weight for this series and is seriously too skinny! LJG excels in any part; if you haven’t seen him in much, be sure to check out some of his best work in “Time Between Dog and Wolf” and “Iljimae”. Jo Min Ki (Taejo) is LJG’s biological father in Iljimae and LJG’s nemesis in “Two Weeks”. Kang Ha Neul showed his acting chops playing a smaller part as a disabled teen in “Two Weeks”.
I have seen IU in several dramas, found her to be very beautiful, delightful and very perky. I have enjoyed her performances, especially in Dream High. Are they going to do a second season of Producer? I want to see where her storyline would go next.
Hong Jong Hyun must have had a blast playing the villainous Yo. I have got to watch something with His Royal Hotness where he is not a villain. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Nam Joo Hyuk and Baekhyun were handsome, but not as easily recognizable without their Goryeo hair and gear. Baekhyun’s contribution to the soundtrack is my favorite! Although admittedly this is a solid soundtrack!
I got a kick out of my Ji Soo and his “fighting” – he is always so vivacious! Ji Soo do you have a hug for this noona? I have loved in in all the dramas I have seen him in; he was particularly compelling in Angry Mom – that was introduction to Ji Soo.
Yoon Sun Woo seemed really nice, unlike his cockroach-like character Won.
Jin Ki Joo has such a great smile, I noticed her adorable dimples during the series.
Z.Hera is beautiful and had excellent English. I have Moorim School on my watch list.
I ❤ this OST and the drama; I'm definitely going to buy both!
I enjoyed this as well. They look just as awesome in the modern world as they did in Goreyo!
As for his royal hotness, I didn’t see much with him in it….. but I enjoyed his short role as a side character (in his earlier years) in Oh my Lady. Its a bit of a light-hearted happy series that would be the perfect thing after the tear duct draining SHR end.
Let me know if you find anything in which he has more of a role. I know he played a King once in a Senguk, but never got around to see it……
Also if you have not seen the Running Man episode in which the SHR characters battled it out, I think in August of 2016 ?? (you’ll have to confirm which date it was) , its something amusing to watch if you like that sort of thing. I do…….and it was a great way of poking fun at the whole SHR thing. Also you had Wook, Yo and So in it! It was good fun.
Both the Running man episode and Oh my Lady are available on DFever with subs…….not sure if that helps.
As for Baek Ah- Did you catch Cheese in the Trap with him in it? I really enjoyed that series as well.
Thanks for the recommendations! I have not seen Oh My Lady or Cheese in the Trap, I’ll have to put them on my “to watch” list.
I fell for Ji Soo while watching Angry Mom. I wasn’t sure his character would fully evolve in Scarlet Heart but it got there. I liked how he went from boy to man. His loving support of Hae Soo at the end of her life was touching.
I enjoyed seeing the actors too. You’d think more dramas could do this kind of “special episode” and use it to mid-way in a series run thank existing fans and hopefully garner new fans. Or maybe add a thank you from one actor just before the credits starting at the mid point of a series and switch actors each episode until the end.
This drama will stick with me. It mattered to me.
Angry Mom was when I fell for ❤ Ji Soo ❤ too! Ji Soo, the makeup artists and costumers made Jung's evolution from boy to man believeable. Jung's loving Hae Soo and protecting her daughter to the death was a lovely touch to the series.
JT, are we drama soulmates?
Why yes, I think we may very well be! I’m sure that’s why I 💖 your blog!!!

IU stirring up some emotions with this.
Thank you Kelli for the link. I would have been fine with the hand offering a tissue too. In my mind I am confident they meet again so whether he comes to her in the musuem or later, it will happen.
