Slandering! 2009-08-15

Princess Ja Myung Go, the TV series I have been waiting for so eagerly, has disappointed me to the bottom of my heart. A fake kingdom, Nak Rang, a fake princess, Ja Myung and a fake story.
After watching Jumong and learning about his legend and his struggles to rebuild the old Kingdom of Chosoen and free his people from the cruelty of the Hans, and then watching The Land of the Wind, in which Muhyul tried to overcome a destiny of omens that had been foreseen, I was expecting another master piece about Hodong, Muhyul’s son, and his love story. I never expected these two heroic figures to be slandered like this.
Jumong defeated numberless of obstacles and enemies to establish Gogoryo and is considered a hero and a father to a nation that I as a foreigner respect a lot. The sacrifice he made as a strong and devoted general to unite the scattered nation of Chosoen should be respected at least by the writers who want to depict the life of his grandson. How on earth did the writers of this disappointing drama dare to create a new independent Kingdom and then claim that the only reason Muhyul wanted to conquer it has been his ego and desire to be the one and only core of power in Gogoryo, where in fact Nak Rang had only been a dependent state ruled by an appointed puppet of the Han dynasty of China? It seems to me the writers did not, cannot, understand that by changing Nak Rang into a Kingdom, they have changed Muhyul, King Daemushin, into a tyrant. And this fake figure of Ja Myung has made Hodong a detestable liar who abused Princess Nak Rang only in order to conquer her land.

Such libeling is really shameful!

And of course there is the matter of not-very-good make up and choice of actors and actresses. King Daemushin is at least 50 years old from Hodong’s childhood till his young hood and the greatest beauty of Nak Rang, Jashil, is not beautiful at all.

The only reason I followed the story was the wonderful acting skills of the drama’s young actors and actresses, especially teenage Hodong, Yeo Jin Goo.
