[mslee's thoughts] Six Flying Dragons Episode 38 - Sambong and Bang Won, Inevitably...The Fate of Becoming Enemies

The deciding point of Lee Bang Won's life happened after realizing that his fate would be to take the hard way. To live as he is who unfortunately would be someone who could never go back to being innocent. His hands had been stained with blood. Well, it was not something new, because he had been that way since young. He would go and proceed to be someone who faces challenges with tough decisions weak man could never be

Going separate ways....

Assassinating Po Eun Jo Mung Joo only made Sambong and his father Lee Seung Gye judged him as someone who would always take matters into his own hands. That he would always made them feel that he, Bang Won is always right and that it would not deter him to take actions even without consulting them or disregarding their opinions. Sambong knew him as Hong In Bang did. And this made Sambong realized Bang Won's recklessness, impatience, impulsiveness,  and being stubborn would not be beneficial to the new government he is creating together with Lee Seung Gye.

Bang Won had always known or rather felt Sambong's wariness towards his decisions. He tried to obey, to listen but all went down the drain with the incident of Po Eun. No one stood up for him even if his decision was the last remaining action he had to take to save them all. And now, clearly, his ambition to be recognized for all his efforts to work along side them to fulfill his own dreams of making people happy will not materialize anymore, if Sambong's will is to be followed.

So this is the deciding point for Bang Won [Prince Jeongan]. To make it possible for him to be the crown prince. But I personally think according to this interpretation of the writer that although Bang Won wanted to be the successor. he would not stand in the way of his older brother Bang Soo [Prince Jinan] because he knew that being the oldest son he has the right to be the Crown Prince. I think at first Bang Won just wanted to be able to help through having his own place in this new government which sadly Sambong already blocked.

How you treat a person becomes what he is...

After all the ridicule, the name calling and disappointments, being called murderer, Bang Won starts to live by how people treats him and what people thinks  or expects of him.

Who would resolve the scholars problems of running away and not participating in the palace's order of taking state examinations? Only Bang Won had the strength to face these scholars who are hiding while showing strength of opposition. It was surprising for Bang Won's follower like Moo Hyul and Ha Ryun to see the determination on Bang Won's face on dealing with the scholars. Ha Ryun was clearly surprised and felt fear at Bang Won's change of personality. Persuasion is not the key to win this fight for Bang Won. More of threatening them, to see how far will their principles stay intact. His plans according to him will show that in the end these scholars will  go back to their places in the government and those who hated him will soon want power to make him pay. It was not a plan that impresses Ha Ryun but rather it was scary. But Bang Won was confident that they would also end up not his enemies but maybe his allies like what happened to them. Ha Ryun used to be Bang Won's enemy but now, he realized the potential of Bang Won and his intelligence that's why they became somewhat friends.

After the scholars fled from the burning fires, only 13 stayed and died, they were so mad at Bang Won. They were detained and instructed not to be fed for 3 days. On the 3rd day, food was given and after 2 hours, they were released. What Bang Won surmised happened. And the problem about the scholars was solved.

But his way was not what Sambong and Lee Seung Gye [King Taejo] accepted. What they see perhaps was the hideous way it was done. Thus they concluded Bang Won is not fit to be the successor. The irony of the situation for Sambong and Lee Seung Gye was that Prince Jinan [Bang Soo] does not want to be the crown prince. It was not surprising because even before the thought of his father going to be the next king was something he would not accept. For Bang Woo, he is a patriotic and his loyalty remains to Goryeo. The revolution that happened and how Po Eun was murdered were things he could not accept. He would rather disobey his father than be the crown prince. He even thought Bang Won was suitable for the position because he was the one who made the overthrowing of Goryeo possible. Bang Won contributed so much that even Bang Soo recognized it.

It was a situation Sambong did not anticipate for his "pure" government. Now the rights on becoming the successor has been broken. Any from the son has now the right and the chance to be the successor. Sambong made it clear to Lee Seung Gye it should not be Bang Won. It can be Bang Gwa [Prince Yeongan] the second son who was always a good son to Lee Seung Gye. Well I do like him but I think he is not born to be a leader. In previous episodes even Bang Won could manipulate him and he would be uncertain of what to do. He seemed really nice as a brother and a son. But for Lee Seung Gye Bang Gwa who went with him to all his fights was not pure because of the blood stains Bang Gwa also has in his hands.

Which made it easy for the wife of Lee Seung Gye to insinuate that her son, Bang Seok [Prince Uian] must be the rightful successor. She was manipulated by Moo Myung, a monk who told her that her son's fate is short, that he would die early so he must be the next king. Bang Seok is an intelligent child and Lee Seung Gye decided on the matter of his successor.

However even Ji Ran, Jo Joon and Sambong's aide  Lee Sin Jeok were impressed by Bang Won's capability and echoing that his actions be recognized. Jo Joon even sought Ji Ran to asked him to talk to Lee Seung Gye about Bang Won to be the Crown Prince. Sambong and Jo Joon had an argument about it because for Sambong, there is a right place for every discussion.

Sambong's principle is that the next 50 years should determine what kind of government Joseon would be so he wanted to start in a "pure" way, thus Bang Won is out of the picture. For Jo Joon, the next 50 years would determine if the government would stay or crumble thus it needs a strong leader and Bang Won fit the position.

Who is right?

Both had good reasons but I think Jo Joon's view is more applicable to make Joseon a country that will survive and then policies can come later.

Moo Myung is once again meddling in the government. Unknown to some Moo Myung had been shaping the country since Goryeo days. Now they won't stand by and just let their agenda be washed away. Bang Won is showing his strength by facing them with authority and not an ounce of fear. He is confident in every way. As he had chosen the path where he must walk, he is now determined to let enemies know he is not someone who would be scared or be manipulated.

What I like about the relationship between Bang Won and Boon Yi is that it is true that Bang Won easily opens up with her and not lie to her. He can be truthful to her even if not sure if her loyalty would still be his. But I think he knew Boon Yi enough to remind her what started their fight against powerful and corrupt officials to make her stay by her side.

As for Moo Hyul, his soft personality or maybe his ignorance and innocent mind, he was having trouble accepting the new tough and scary Bang Won. He questions Bang Won's decisions if they were still right. I wonder if Moo Hyul would stay loyal to Bang Won or would he turned away from him.

Bang Won learned that Bang Seok would be the successor and he felt mad about it. Of course, even Sambong knew the issues that would surface regarding Bang Seok [Prince Uian] being the crown prince. Bang Seok was not a son from first marriage. The legitimacy would be questioned. Not to add that he is only a child and has no contribution at all to the new government on how it was founded.

This will be Bang Won's chance to fight for the place where he wanted to be in. It would be traitorous, blood would once again spill. The fight for becoming a King is now even more igniting Bang Won's desire. For him, it is his rightful calling and destiny to be the leader who will lead Joseon for the people. Up to this point I want to think that Bang Won's sincerity in fulfilling his youthful passion and dreams are intact. Being powerful comes in handy to be able to realize his dreams.

But it is true that desire and will that comes from Bang Won's personality can be dangerous...at least in the eyes of Sambong who will do anything to stop Bang Won to be the next ruler in this new society he has drawn and planned. That's why to proceed as the King's wishes to make Bang Seok the Crown Prince, Sambong asked that he be given full control of the military. A tactic that would make Joseon under his power. Bang Won of course had already realized this scenario.

Inevitably, they would be enemies. And this was their fate.

[mslee's thoughts] Cheese in the Trap - The Complex Personality of Yoo Jung

Cheese In The Trap is on hiatus this week for the lunar year celebration. It's not surprising if viewers [like me] who are looking forward to episodes 11 and 12 are trying to be patient just to make it next week. Actually there are still other dramas in my list but somehow, Cheese In The Trap really caught me like I am actually trapped with unexplained fixation for this cute drama. Guess the drama's charm is really something I can't get enough of. Since the preview of the on coming scenes are something to look forward to, I'm trying to be patient.


I watched again [actually I can't count the times I already watched again and again the episodes] to fill the void I am feeling.

I am fascinated with the character of Yoo Jung, sunbae.

Well, it's cute how Seol refers to him as sunbae even if they are already in a relationship. I think it comes with how it is to be Korean. Every time Seol calls him sunbae, it sounded like her own brand of endearment to him the way she speaks the word. The hesitation or the surprise and awkwardness in her tone makes her adorable and cute at the same time.

I think it is the complex personality of Yoo Jung which makes her uncomfortable regardless of being his girlfriend. Even I as a viewer is sometimes perplexed at Yoo Jung for he is not your ordinary boy-next-door eye candy with his complicated aura. It's not surprising if Seol goes back and forth in doubting him every time nuances like Young Gon put hard on twisting words or show facts like text messages that are already in the past.

I think misunderstanding what happened before should not be of importance now. But since those messages were a part of Seol's miserable year when Young Gon stalked her, it became a problem that caught up in the present times. There is no denying that Yoo Jung probably misunderstand her when she gave a drink to Young Gon after he hit Yoo Jung while making a fuss at the basketball court. It was true that during that time, she and Yoo Jung were not in good terms as hoobae/sunbae. It could be that Yoo Jung felt annoyed perhaps a bit jealous considering she was not friendly with him after the incident at the party where she found him smirking as he found her doing the same thing. It was true that Yoo Jung texted Young Gon but the other texts messages were not his anymore but of In Ha who were then being a brat while Yoo Jung let her be.

But when Seol asked him now if he really sent those messages, he did not make excuses and just admitted it was him. He did not make it clear which text messages he sent and how the circumstances was played that time. For Yoo Jung, it is more easy to just be honest and not explain, thinking it was the best thing to do and that Seol would understand. Well, she was hurt and betrayed even though it happened way before they became campus couple.

Yoo Jung's way of tackling life and things is simple. It's either black or white. But he did not realize that he is not that easy to read, to understand because he appears vague and shady which makes it too complex for others to see.

One thing Yoo Jung is good at is creating opportunity.

He finds ways to get back at people just like Son Min Soo. He saw how she transformed herself to be like Seol, to imitate and cause misunderstanding, even stealing the doll he gave to Seol and not giving it back. He knew Seol was being a pushover about it, not fighting back and letting Min Soo get away with her copying. He knew it is getting tiresome. Getting Seol's brother to appear in front of Min Soo and the rest of the students who thought Joon is Min Soo's boyfriend [she did save his face in her phone and everyone mistook him as her boyfriend and she just went along] was an opportunity that enlighten everyone. The fight between Min Soo and Seol was inevitable. It has to happen to stop Min Soo from being foolish anymore. Time to get back to reality.


It was hard for Seol, dealing with all these and Yoo Jung's interference once again. She realized he is that kind of person. He will do the right thing even if his ways are shady, a bit calculating. It's the feeling that makes Seol even more awkward and uncomfortable with him. She knew he is a good person but something stops her from totally trusting him. That's when Yoo Jung gave her space. To let her come to him instead of crowding her when he knows she needs time to understand him.


I do have a favorite scene which really stayed with me even after it ended.

One of the scenes that made my heart jolt was when Yoo Jung suddenly gave Seol a back hug. It was after she learned he sent those text messages to Young Gon. They had a fight. At the school next day, she went to drink coffee and he followed her but walked passed her. She then went to the rest room and when she came out he was still standing there by the stairway, like waiting for her. She went to walk passed him and that was when he suddenly held her hand and turned around for a back hug. I think the back hug said it all how sorry he was, how he missed her, how he really likes her and hope she forgives him soon. That scene [back hug] I guess was one of the best scenes in the story.

I can't compare him to In Ho because they are two different characters. It's apparent that Seol thinks more of Yoo Jung than In Ho even if she is with the latter. She feels jealous and insecure just  thinking of In Ha being Yoo Jung's girlfriend. Even though both Yoo Jung and In Ho denied the romantic relationship with regards to In Ha, Seol can't help but be bothered by the photo Young Gon sent her. Enough to make her mind wanders and be anxious even if In Ho is there besides her.

This clearly shows who she really likes to be with romantically. The one who makes her sad and troubled is definitely Yoo Jung. Complicated and hard to understand character, still there's no doubt Yoo Jung is the one.

As for other characters like In Ha, I think her annoying character is somehow making it fun for viewers seeing her messing with Young Gon's life and at the same time being protective of Jae Woo. I know new misunderstanding will be created once Young Gon tell others that she is Yoo Jung's girlfriend as well. I like to see Young Gon being made a fool. His fixation to Seol is really irritating and alarming already. I guess In Ha is a match for him.

And of course when In Ha bullied Min Soo thinking she is Yoo Jung's girlfriend. I should say "poor Min Soo" but hmmm...no, I think for the annoying actions she is doing of copying Seol, this little misunderstanding is just right for her.

I really wish there is no love triangle because In Ho is a good friend to Seol. But then I guess the writer wants it as complex as Yoo Jung's personality. :))

Can't wait for Monday!
