*PICS ARE NOT MINES, ABLE TO FIND ON INTERNET!
WOW it’s been awhile since I’ve posted something on tumblr. Life has been busy with work now lol. Sighhhh. Anywho last night I finally finished watching K-Series Goddess of Fire Jung Yi, so here I am back on tumblr to ramble! Like I said I would after I finished watching this series. I did ramble about this series abit but it mostly revolved around Lee Kwang Soo haha. Now I’m back regarding everything else about this series. Lol.
SO BEWARE OF MAJOR MAJOR SPOILERS!!! K-Series Goddess of Fire Jung Yi
First off! A BIG HEOLLLLLLLLLL???????!!!?!?!?!?! And AISHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! LOL. I literally said that after I finished watching the finale episode lol. XD. But before I dive right into rambling about the finale to spoil things I guess it’s better if I ramble about other things first lol.
So I guess I’ll just talk about characters and actors first.
Starting with the younger stars. I gotta say I loved the younger stars. For this series, the child cast were exact duplicates/ replicates of their adult parts! Watching the first few episodes with the kids reminded me of K-Series The Moon That Embraces the Sun. It was also funny how I remember the child actress, Jin Ji Hee as Moon Guen Young in this series being the little princess in TMTETS that fell for Zea’s Siwan and created all the problems in TMTETS lol. It’s crazy how much she had grown for this series. I have to admit she gave out such a strong or more sassy character vibe as Jung Yi that I think Moon Guen Young couldn’t show as the adult version of Jung Yi….
Kid Taedo – Park Gun Hyung did well too. But for kid actors I have to give it to the 2 boy as Prince Gwang Hae and Im Hae the brother duo lol :]. No Young Hak looks exactly like Lee Sang Yoon (adult actor for Prince Gwang Hae) I literally had to do a double take watching episode 5 when the series made the transition of the kids growing up to their adult part. Like literally I had to pause and rewind abit back to see the change for Prince Gwang Hae lol. As for the boy who grew up to be kwang soo haha, Lee In Sung had the same mouth has Kwang Soo not sure about the upper portion of his face. But I give him a round of applause for getting down Kwang Soo’s facial expressions and lips expression? LOL. Like the famous Kwang soo smirk? Lee in Sung had it down haha. But yes I applause them all!
Now onto the adults of the series.
Moon Geun Young, great actress, nothing much else I can really say or complain about haha.
Kim Bum. *swoon* the guy was looking mighty fine as a ninja/bodyguard character lol. I was pretty disappointed with what happened to his character in episode 31. -___-. Like come on really?!?!??!?!?! After 31 episodes of him being an awesome fighter!?!?!?!? And then bam in episode 31?! He gets stab just like that?!?!?!!? COME ONNNNNN??!?!?!!? Sighhhhhhhhh SMH lol. But I applaud his character for only looking and loving Jung Yi. And realizing the fact that she only sees him as a brother and not a man.
Lee Sang Yoon as Prince Gwang Hae? Well he’s handsome haha. It was my first time to see Lee San Yoon in a K-Series or should I say know him as an actor too lol. He played a great prince because he looks the part haha. But it was just so funny to see how he would be all smart and wise but when it came to him speaking to his brother Prince Im Hae aka Kwang Soo. I swear he would get brain washed by Kwang Soo in the series LOL. And I bet you anything when he had scenes with Kwang Soo he probably had to hold in his laughter a lot haha.
And then there’s my loveable girin-DNAed Lee Kwang Soo lol. The sole purpose and reason why I decided to check the series out lol. And not gonna lie the reason why I managed to pull through to finish the series. Because I was interested to see how his character would do in the end. And let’s just say I was a bit disappointed how his character ended up too lol. But it’s girin kwang soo what can I say….I literally played the St. Agnes burning train song in my head watching Kwang soo’s last scene in the series LOL. XD.
The series overall to me was decent and okay. I am surprised with myself to even finish the series as it was a historical one and 32 episodes long at that! Lol. Cause normally such wouldn’t be my cup of tea type series lol. And to add to that, a series about pottery! LOL. Not gonna lie at first that seemed boring to me when I read the plot of the series. But for someone who knows zero/zip things about pottery…….I could say I somewhat was interested in learning about it through this series abit lol. So call me crazy for actually being interested in seeing how bowls/cups/and vases were made in this series LOL.
I do have to admit I felt like the plot/problem was dragged on abit even though they had pottery competitions in between to make it not seem like it was dragged….but still it dragged somehow lol. Like really it takes 30 episodes long for Jung Yi and her biological father to find out that they were actual blooded related?! LOL. Seriously had me going AIGOOOOOOOO lol.
FINALE SPOILER!!!!!!!! SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!! BEWAREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Out of all the Asian series I’ve seen this series has got to be the first one ever to disappoint with the loveline part of the series lol. Sad to say……I don’t know if it was because this series is based on a real story/history…..or what…..but loveline wise I was pretty disappointed……Also I think it’s the first series I’ve ever seen with zero/zip/nada kiss scene…… like seriously not even ONE!?!?!?! =O lol. Like I totally understand the series is based off of a true story and figure but it’s a Korean series version….so couldn’t they at least throw in one kiss to make it entertainment? LOL Another reason why I stuck with this series was because I was curious about the ending result of the loveline……..and I got to say I was disappointed…….. sure they had some cute moments that made me go awhhhhh but ending result NOTHING. -___-. No kiss…..but there was a heart confession I guess…….ending wise…..I understand it as it was based probably on true events….but like I said they could have made it happy ever after for a series………Like have Jung Yi return to Korea and meet Gwang Hae as the new King… BUT sad 17 years pass……and nothing……Jung Yi never returned……we only have King Gwang Hae thinking of her and hoping she’s well……….TRUELY MADE ME GO HEOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL????????????????? AISHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH??????????????? LOL. Or as Kwang Soo would say AYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
But overall an a-ok series. Not sure if I’ll ever rewatch it though LOL. But for Lee Kwang Soo I will keep the series video files lol. XD. Hopefully our Giraffe Kwang Soo will one day get to be the main star of a series lol.
