[DAEBAK REVIEW] The ahjumma and the new eel series: Review, thoughts and impressions of Daebak drama episode 9

EPISODE 9 Ahjumma Review
The ahjumma and the new eel series:review,thoughts and impressions of Daebak drama in chat mode.
By Beth Wagner and Esther Noloc.
Guest: Kat Philpot and Mamacri Chan

I said at the end of the 8th episode that this episode will be explosive and I wasn't wrong. It was explosive and more,with a lot of action ,drama ,suspense and more, enjoy this chat with us.
Beth’s note:  thanks to Kat and Mamacri for filling in, and Esther for her patience!  I had to go on a trip to my parents’, so I will be back for episode 10.

ESTHER: The episode started with Chief State Councilor Kim Chang-jip, returning from siz years of ambassador duties to Qing. Look at that! He received a VIP treatment from the ministers and the people. A white carpet, like the red carpet Hollywood displays. In-jwa was there of course.

KAT: In-jwa doesn’t seem overly happy to see him. Maybe Chang-jip can hog-tie him and foil all of his attempts to undermine the monarchy.

[DAEBAK Drama Recap] Episode 16

“All great changes are preceded by chaos.” ~ Deepak Chopra.

This quotation seems like it was written for Dae Gil: his life is “chaos”--from the very day he came into this world until now when he is grown up, is more mature, is well-trained, and gained a lot of money. And now, in the blink of an eye, his existence is turned upside down again. A series of secrets from his past confuses him. Dealing with uninvited changes in our lives is often difficult and painful; he will need some time to digest the truth.


In Jwa, the cunning noble who created this chaos, tells Dae Gil what he never asked to know: his mother is alive and is a royal consort. His brother is the prince who is fighting with him against corruption. His father, Baek Man Geum--the reason he embarked on this journey of vengeance, violence, and pain--is not his real father. In fact, his father is none other than the king of the nation.  “You must be crazy,” Dae Gil says with angry voice and eyes.

Dae Gil can’t control his feelings, and draws his sword, pointing it directly at the enemy in front of him. We can't blame him for that.

[Article] Actor Jang Keun-suk calls 'The Royal Gambler' personal 'bonanza'

Original source: english.yonhapnews.co.kr

By Park Sojung

GOYANG, South Korea, May 20 (Yonhap) -- Jang Keun-suk said Friday, despite having acted for more than a decade, "The Royal Gambler" has opened his eyes to his still latent potential as an actor.

"Through 'The Royal Gambler' I was able to contemplate on acting more deeply than before," he told reporters on the set of the SBS period drama in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province. "The fact that I was able to discover more of my hidden potential is truly a 'bonanza' (laugh)."

He was referring to the meaning of the Korean title of the series, "Daebak."

[DAEBAK drama recap] Episode 15

Writer: Christine Romalewski
Editors: Val Kaye Taozen & Tabby
Pictures credit: SBS

Recap begins:

Yeoning and Suk Bin

Episode 15 continues where Episode 14 ended, with a stunned Yeoning trying to process the incomprehensible idea that Daegil could possibly be his deceased older brother.  He apprehensively but directly asks his ailing mother if Daegil is his brother, and she tearfully confirms that he is and explains the reasons for her giving him up.  No one – not the ministers, not the queen, not even the king himself – would have allowed this child to survive.   But even in the midst of her emotional pain in relieving this abandonment of ‘that poor child’, we see her ever-present pragmatism when she tells her son that if she hadn’t done this, ‘I would not be where I am today. Yeoning, you would not be here today.’

ESTHER: Our hero Dae Gil is in the mountains ready to be trained, but where is his Master? He is working hard cutting trees and cooking, while the master is sleeping and snoring...That food he is making--  Chef Jang is in his veins? In case you don’t know, Jang Keun Suk is a good cook and even published a book of recipes, so I guess Dae Gil cooks too, kkk.
KAT: I hear Chef Jang is quite an excellent cook, so it only follows that Dae-gil would be as well. haha

[Article] I.O.I’s Jung Chaeyeon Delivers Gifts To “Produce 101″ Mentors For Teachers’ Day

Original English source: soompi.com
Original Article: http://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=057&aid=0000959316

Admin note: 
Teacher's day is quite big in Korea. After lunch students from middle and high schools will go to their previous elementary or middle schools and present gifts to their teachers. Even the young teachers will go to their previous schools to give thanks to principals and vice principals and teachers. Friday past was such a festive day. (cr. Thea -TEF)

On May 15, I.O.I’s Jung Chaeyeon showed her appreciation to her “Produce 101″ mentors for the Korean holiday, Teachers’ Day.

The girl group member visited the set of “Jackpot,” where Jang Geun Suk is currently filming, in order to give him a sweet gift of strawberry juice and a cake. The two can be seen smiling brightly in the photo. She also delivered drinks to the staff members on the set.

She even found the “Produce 101″ trainers on their way to vacation at the airport, gifting Bae Yoon Jung, Brown Eyed Girls’ Jea, Kahi, and Cheetah with the same strawberry drinks. Jea posted on her Instagram, “She also beautifully wrote a letter, thank you kind-hearted Chaeyeon.”

[DAEBAK drama recap] Episode 14

Writer: Saranya GS Eel
Editors: Val Kaye Taozen & Tabby
Pictures credit: SBS

“Secrets are like plants. They can stay buried deep in the earth for a long time, but eventually they'll send up shoots and give themselves away. They have to. It's their nature. Just a tiny green stem at first. Which slowly, insidiously grows taller, stronger, unfolding itself, until there it is. A big fat secret, right in front of your face; a fully bloomed flower perfumed with the scent of deception.” 
 Judy Reene Singer, Still Life With Elephant

Recap begins:
The episode starts where we left off in the last episode. Dae Gil, shocked to see Dam Seo, with her sword pointing down at Gol Sa's body, stops her. He asks what in the world she is doing. Hearing Gol Sa’s daughter call her father, Dae Gil tells Dam Seo to go; she leaps through the window. Yeon Hwa (Gol Sa's daughter) enters and sees Dae Gil crouched by Gol Sa. She panics, seeing her father drenched in blood, and cries as Gol Sa dies in her hands. Obviously, given the circumstances, she thinks Dae Gil killed her father. She looks at Dae Gil, eyes blazing, and asks, “How could you do this to my father?” Panicked, he replies that he didn’t kill Gol Sa. She's not convinced as tears well in her eyes. He repeats he didn’t do it but will find the culprit and why her father was killed. She doesn’t believe him and asks how dare he deny it. As the guards storm in, she orders them to catch Baek Dae Gil—her father’s killer. Dae Gil escapes.
