Of course i wouldn’t mind Hwayugi 1.5! And we see Oh Gong speeding down an expressway and smiling. Subs By The Monkey Minions. He seeks to restore his status by devouring a special woman (Oh Yeon Seo) who can see spirits. They just do and it’s up to each viewer whether he or she accepts it. Change ). So happy that Lee Seung Gi took up this role and can’t imagine the Monkey King to be anyone else! So sorry for this late reply! “It was me who loved you so much that I put a star in the sky for you.” With a snap of his fingers, the stars fell into her lap. 5 Comments. Because “Hwayugi” was never really about the battle to save the world, and after watching a drama that focused on developing characters through weekly story arcs and subplots rather than emphasizing the impending fight for humanity, it felt odd to have this reversed in the final episodes. And while we’re proud of how far our OTP has come since the beginning of the drama, the big climactic battle that “Hwayugi” has been building up to was… well, rather anticlimactic. This is largely because the finale missed the mark with its treatment of Sun Mi: we hear for weeks that Sun Mi has an important world-saving job that only she, as Sam Jang, can carry out…. This in effect allows the couple to relive their memories – such as present Seon Mi kissing Oh Gong to reenact the activation process and Oh Gong remembering their kiss in the bookseller’s mansion. However, ironically, it was his heart, which Guemganggo was wrapped tightly around, that was left intact. Indeed, I couldn’t get enough of Son Oh Gong and I just wanted to see more. It’s soon night time and the couple has returned to the park. Lee Seung-Gi, the multi-talented lead actor of Netflix drama "A Korean Odyssey", is a rising star. You have really been phenomenal in this show. And it’s in this that we find our happy ending — because if there’s one thing we can be certain of, it’s that Oh Gong is going to raise hell in the Underworld until he gets Sun Mi back! Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. I don’t know about you but it was slightly unanticipated for me that Bu Ja did not resurface in the end, and that Ah Sa Nyeo just disappeared like this. A Korean Odyssey walks in the footsteps of Goblin, but with less cinematic value. As Oh Gong walks through Seon Mi’s house, he relives memories and turns around to face Seon Mi. So thank you and goodnight! Oh Gong’s heart hurts again and he realises that Seon Mi is lying – it wasn’t just her following him blindly. Korean Drama series rarely have a second season. The show started with a contract between a demon n a human and ended with a promise between two lovers… How poetic!! Wait for me, when you are suffering, in fear or in danger, you just need to call my name. It’s also nice that Ma Wang reminds us, this is one crazy monkey we have on our hands! In 2017, Son Oh Gong and Ma Wang are in conflict with each other and they look for a … As a tear comes down from his face, Oh Gong says, “We will meet again.” The star necklace blinks and she has to go. In other words, it is totally logically possible for Oh Gong to take the sword and kill the dragon, as he did, without harming Seon Mi. I think this is one of my top favourite scenes of this episode and maybe the past few episodes! They locked him up in the Five Elements Mountain and he was then forgotten by the humans. Thank you for your support! He walks over and pulls her into a tight hug. He said it is good…it is something he doesn’t find burdensome but instead was glad… Sometimes we think that the living person will be hurt by the love that remains but the love could be a source of strength for the living…. Ma Wang (Cha Seung Won) and Oh Gong do not emerge from “Hwayugi” having arrived at a destination. It’s not every show that can take viewers from such blissful tenderness…. “I will definitely find you.” Wow smart monkey!! Jin Sun Mi (Oh Yeon Seo) ultimately accepts her destiny, and shows new strength by carrying it out on her terms rather than allowing the heavens to force Son Oh Gong (Lee Seung Gi) to kill her. However, without memories of Seon Mi, Oh Gong treats her like a pest and rejects her help with the Guemganggo. However, in response to my comment in Episode 19 review, seems like there was really no point in Ah Sa Nyeo gearing herself up for being the biggest, worst evil ghost there is then. It’s entirely possible that that’s why she died as a human and went to the afterlife, and the previous Sam Jung didn’t. Or maybe on your blog? I would highly recommend this drama for the romance, bromance and it’s depiction of friendships. Ma Wang gets serious and tells Oh Gong to piece his memories together so that he can remove the Guemganggo. HAHAH. A Korean Odyssey Episode 19. Subtitles English, Hungarian, Korean and 33 more. In the meantime, the others aren’t sitting around waiting, they’re causing their own trouble since they know Oh Gong and crew are coming. HAHA I love it that the entire gang, including Bu Ja is back (omg I miss Bu Ja, we never got to see her in the end:() and how they all whisk off to Ma Wang’s hotel in the end. Pingback: Thoughtsramble in 2018 | THOUGHTSRAMBLE, It was a very interesting story. Taken in this view, it makes sense, but when I take a step back, it still appears to be a pointless death – there was nothing that Sam Jung did which actually helped in tackling the dragon. He closes his eyes in tears as Oh Gong emerges from the bathroom, and talks lovingly of the days when Oh Gong leaves the bathroom floor filled with foam suds. To such devastating heartbreak, all in the span of a single episode. Did u realise that the scene which SM called OG out to the garden is the same scene in episode 1 which OG called SM to the garden to say she has grown up well? So keep me in the loop, will be happy to support! We see that post-Dragon, Oh Gong has completely forgotten everything that has happened, including Seon Mi. Gu Yu (Eternal Love Rain) (The World is Coming) (2020) Trường An Như Cố (Cốt Cách Mỹ Nhân) Forever and Ever 2 ( Love Your Bones Forever) Meanwhile Ma Wang has finally gotten enough points and become a deity so he is able to get his wife back and acknowledge his son. lol). It really helps me feel a little better. I guess however, there was a point to Bu Ja’s farewells after all (remember she bade her farewells before she met Ah Sa Nyeo?). Hahaha. Korean Drama of the Week "A Korean Odyssey" 2020/09/24, Source Korean drama of the week "A Korean Odyssey" (2017) Directed by Kim Byeong-soo, Kim Jeong-hyeon-I, Kim Seul-ah, Park Hong-gyoon Written by Hong Jeong-eun, Hong Mi-ran Network: tvN With Lee Seung-gi, Cha Seung-won, Oh Yeon-seo, Lee Hong-ki, Lee El, … On the cohesiveness and coherence of our Sam Jung plot – I get it that there is some meaning to Sam Jung being stabbed because that broke the death fate linking the two together (I guess they are trying to say that being stabbed at the hands of Kang is better than Oh Gong, despite the result being the same?) And that, is the end of Jung Se Ra/Ah Sa Nyeo. General Frost smiles, “It’s possible that only your CEO is human,” which scares Han Joo a lot hahaha. Why? But I can’t believe we really just end there and then, without another last scene of our couple together!! I just finished binge watching this show on Netflix. Ma Wang tries to find the grandmother at the shop, but runs into the grandson once again. He wonders why these people were around his CEO and if it’s possible that she’s not human. I will miss this show so much; I was hoping so desperately that the show wouldn’t end on Oh Gong driving down the road but it did and all good things must come to an end. You're reading the news with potential spoilers, make them spoiler free, dismiss. PK comments that if Sam Jung leaves now, she wouldn’t be able to hear Oh Gong’s true feelings, but General Frost tells him of the time he froze the Guemganggo over – and that was the one time she heard his true feelings. I would love to read any of your works if they are published or going to be published! I wish there was more of evil-spirit catching because those times were fun, but they soon gave way to the main plot of Sam Jung being a vessel. Setelah membuat kontrak dengan Seon Mi 25 tahun yang lalu, memberinya hak untuk mencari bantuan dari Son Oh Gong setiap kali dia memanggilnya dengan imbalan membiarkannya bebas, keduanya bertemu lagi dalam pertemuan … (I was crying so hard his saying all that barely even registered with me.). Nevertheless, he is taken aback to see the extent of the rot. There is some redemption in the fact that it is only through his love for Sun Mi that Oh Gong is ultimately able to defeat the dragon, but “Hwayugi” missed its potential by not giving its heroine a world-saving moment, instead sacrificing Sun Mi to give Oh Gong a battle scene — which, between the unconvincing CGI dragon and the fact that Oh Gong stood in one spot for its entirety, hardly felt like a fight upon which the future of the world was at stake. Like P.K (Lee Hong Ki) and his sorrow over lost friends: Or loyal Lee Han Joo (Kim Sung Oh) and his earnest sadness over Sun Mi’s death: Because at the end of the day, the phenomenal cast of capable actors carried this drama, and we’ll remember “Hwayugi” most for its delightfully eccentric characters who we spent a lot of time laughing with, but who also had the power to make us feel all kinds of emotions. Oh Gong (with a tiny bit of help from the others) blows the gates off, storms inside, causing all kinds of chaos. JAJJANGMYEON MUSEUM Do check back during the weekend to see if I have added the recap!^^. (I’m attending my first writer’s conference this summer so I have to finish my novel first!) The story depicts the journey of seeking true light in the dark world of 2017 where the evil gods are widespread. A young woman is found brutally murdered in a Copenhagen playground. They can be found on my blog. With a little cleverness and determination, they can shape their own futures in spite of what fate has ordained for them. Due to the umbrella, he accidentally wanders into General Frost’s bar and reminisces the big shots who visited the office in the past, especially the mysterious man who loved Seon Mi. ( Log Out / Now that the blues have ebbed away, I’m not quite sure if it’s my favourite drama just because of how they dealt with the ending! The whole scene was so tender, gentle, sad and full of yearning, even from how he wipes her tears away right before she leaves, and how he smiles to let her go with no regrets. A while later, we see Han Joo visiting haunted estate with the yellow umbrella, hoping to reenact the past victories of Seon Mi. So I’m mad that he has to go get her at all because imo his winning against the GGG should have meant he could win against the deadly fate/heavens plans enough for Sun Mi to not die at all since that was the *one thing* he was begging the peddler woman when she told him he could change his fate and also I wanted to see her again – they could have even shown her waiting for him, knowing he’s coming – maybe him seeing through the eye he gave her or him storming the gates of the underworld and her smiling knowing he was there, or them driving off together, or anything like that. hopefully he will be able to find Seon Mi and live together happily with her, that’s all we can imagine now:(, This was not the happy ending i excepted it is sad ending, Yeah it was kinda bittersweet, I definitely did not expect her to die for real. He calls, “Jin Seon Mi,” and reveals that he also remembers her last words. She lies that he ate spicy rice cakes everyday and he retorts that if he hates it, he will cause all spicy rice cakes to disappear from the world. Anyway, how did your Korean Odyssey blues go in the end? She calls Son Oh-gong and orders him to protect her until the very end so she can fulfil the prophecy.

Noomi Rapace stars. Above her hangs a small doll made of chestnuts. But along with some puzzling and heart-rending outcomes, the ending of “Hwayugi” also offered us notes of hope, so let’s review our thoughts on the finale! But just like Oh Gong’s scoffing, they didn’t go there for normal couple-y activities, but to “catch evil spirits.” Seon Mi hesitates to tell him that they came to this park also to catch evil spirits. I do wish as a slight quibble, that the first scene of Oh Gong speaking his true feelings came a little later in the drama. It’s been a fun and wild ride with our motley crew of supernatural characters, but we’ve finally arrived at the end of tvN’s “Hwayugi” — and if we thought we could finish this drama without heartbreak or tragedy, the finale proved us wrong. But I recently joined a great writing group and I have critique partners and am working hard to finish my first novel! Ma Wang was in on the plan so he could suggest to Elder that they send Seon Mi to get off the GGG. She turns around to find that Oh Gong has appeared. He brings her to a nice and quiet park and Ah Sa Nyeo tells him not to struggle as Bu Ja has already totally disappeared before she became an evil spirit. “I hid something from you.” Oh Gong takes off the Guemganggo himself and it disappears.
