[DAEBAK drama recap] Episode 24 (Finale)

Writer: Val Kaye Taozen
Editor: Tabby Cat

Injwa’s great revolution has failed. Prince Mil Poong-goon deserted after seeing how Injwa treated the people he keeps saying his revolution is for. Park Pil-hyun was thwarted by Man-geum in Jeonju, and Chae-gun put an end to the traitor Jeong. Even Hwang Jin-ki turned against him, once Jin-ki finally realized that Injwa’s Great Cause was for himself, not for the people. Even his peasant army dropped their blades, rather than harm Dae-gil, and kneeled down before the King’s army.

Injwa has finally lost; yet, he still refuses to believe he’s been beaten.

After Injwa is tied up, Dae-gil, still bleeding from his gunshot wounds, stumbles towards Yeongjo and his army. After a few weary steps, he bows to Yeongjo and passes out. Seol-im and Grandpa, fearing the worst, rush to Dae-gil’s prone form to see if he’s still alive.

Dae-gil, still unconscious, relives the short battle and awakens in pain. Nevertheless, he manages to get up and dressed. Outside, he’s greeted by all the people he saved. Meanwhile, Yeongjo, meeting with Prince Mil Poong-goon, grants clemency as he promised Dae-gil but charges the Prince to never show his face in the capital city again.

Injwa’s burning supply barn lights up the night sky. And in rides Dae-gil who, essentially, admits to the sabotage and tells Injwa to quit now as he has no chance of winning. He adds that their supplies and horses have been stolen, and half his army is down with diarrhea [from whatever medicine Seol-im administered to the soup]. Of course, Injwa refuses. [What good villain gives up before he’s dealt a deathblow?] He tells Dae-gil that it’s too early to give up, and he has a large army heading his way. Prince Mil-poon arrives on the scene and introductions ensue as Injwa grins. Dea-gil says the government will commit everything it has to end the rebellion, but Injwa clings to his Great Cause. They continue to argue but Dae-gil stops the arguing by saying he will send all the rebels to their ancestors. With that said, he turns the horse around and leaves. Injwa giggles and orders pigeons sent to Jeong and Park to learn what is going on in Gyeongsang and Jeolla Provinces.

[Article] ‘Jackpot’ Jang Keun Suk’s efforts for 3 months

Original source:

[OSEN=Ra Hyo Jin] Historical drama of 24 episodes. Drama break of 2 years. Outstanding juniors and seniors actors. There were several obstacles in front of Jang Keun Suk, the actor who played the main role at ‘Jackpot’. However, the actor who has been 20 years since debuted was different somehow. He overcame all those obstacles through his acting skills and charisma and led the drama great for 3 months.

Jang Keun Suk’s activity until the last episode of SBS ‘Jackpot’ aired on June 14 was outstanding. To his brother Youngjo (a role played by Yeo Jin-goo) who is vigilant because of complex that he was born from lowest class of people family and anxious about the throne obtained with difficulty, Baek Dae-gil tried hard to earn trust. Baek Dae-gil’s pathetic eyes were sorrowful because it was Jang Keun Suk.

Jang Keun Suk acted for variety of characters that we can say it was three characters for one person such as Young-soo who was abandoned after born because he was born in 6 months after pregnant although he was a son of King Sukjong (a role played by Choi Min-soo), a son of gambler Baek Man-geum (a role played by Lee Moon-sik), Gae-ddong and Baek Dae-gil who became an adult by alone. The development of young man who challenge with spirit by believing his ‘luck’ only in the beginning to become a leader who truly cares about public was great enough to touch the viewers.

The ways of treating two fathers, Sukjong and Baek Man-geum were totally different. He was close to Baek Man-geum as if they are friends forever. His affection to only one family, Baek Man-geum was extraordinary. However, he sent missing eyes towards Sukjong while he was in front of him. He supposed to blame Sukjong who kept silence about throwing him away although he knew that he exists, but there was no anger in his eyes while looking at his real father.

[DAEBAK drama recap] Episode 22

Writer: Susann McGovern
Editors: Val Kaye Taozen &Tabby Cat
Pictures credit: SBS

Tiger, Tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
O what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

The inspiring words of William Blake’s “The Tiger” captures the essence of the drama Daebak.

King Sukjong is The Tiger, guiding and forging strength through questions and manipulation of
his two tiger cubs: one recognized, Yeoning; and one not, Dae Gil.

Where will this drama take the two brothers now emerging as tigers themselves searching for their individual thrones and destiny?

The suspicion rises in Episode 22, and the hunt begins anew. The body found with Dae Gil’s arrow is not that of Yi In Jwa.

[DAEBAK drama recap] Episode 21

Writer: Rika Setiati
Editors: Val Kaye Taozen & Tabby Cat

Summary of thought
A change in a person’s attitude is influenced by their position. The throne makes you carry the weight of power; thus, more consideration has to be taken and everyone’s interests and influence taken more into consideration. Seeing episode 21, I get the intense message about the meaning of the throne and its power. Those two things caused Yeoning to lose so many Noron ministers who supported him, including the most caring minister on whom Yeoning had already placed his trust. King Gyeongjong, in his sickness, suffers more to try to protect the throne. And it’s eating Yi In Jwa more and more, who has tried so many bad things and neglects the flowing blood from each person involved, as if they were nothing. In this episode, I’m seeing the bad side of a game of thrones and how it affects all the characters. Surprisingly, although it was so short, because of the throne, too, King Gyeongjong changed fast into a more mature person. I love how this episode gives so much time to him to show the good side of his character. And I’m so happy the one who remains as normal person and is not influenced or eaten by throne and power is Baek Dae Gil.
