The Great Queen Seon Deok - The Most Phenomenal Korean Historical Drama in 2009

I don't know about you, but in my country there is one Korean Historical drama that really attract many attention lately. That's The Great Queen Seon Deok (Seon Deok Yeo Wang). My national TV that had the broadcast right of that drama have to replay it due to the request of viewers.
This saeguk drama has reached the highest rating among other Korean dramas in South Korea. The rating reaches more than 40 % in South Korea, and the drama popularity is wide spread not just in East Asian countries like Japan and China. The popularity also reached through many Asian regions like in Southeast Asian countries such as Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.

So, What is the drama all about ?

The History

This is about the first Queen in ancient Korean history. The history of Silla dynasti. Silla is one of three Kingdoms in Korea. Another Kingdoms are Baekje and Goguryeo. According to Wikipedia Seondeok reigned as Queen of Silla, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea, from 632 to 647 AD. She was Silla's twenty-seventh ruler and its first reigning queen.

According to Wikipedia, Queen Seondeok before she became queen, she was known as Princess Deok Man the second daughter of King Jinpyeong. Because the King had no sons, so he had selected Seondeok as his heir. This act was not unusual in Silla periode, as women of the periode had a certain degree of inluence as advisors, dowager queens, and regents. Women were heads of families since matrilineal lines of descent existed along with patrilineal ones. During the Silla kingdom, the status of women remained relatively high, but they were expected to do their duties and not try to do activities that were considered to be unwomanly.

Seondeok's reign was a violent one, there were many rebellions and fighting with the neighbor Kingdom of Baekje. Seondeok was known as a smart queen. She kept the kingdom together and extended its ties with China. Sending many scholars to China and learn from that country. Seondeok was drawn to Buddhism and presided over the completion of Buddhist Temples.
Seondeok built the "Star-Gazing Tower" or Cheomseongdae as the first observatory in East Asia. Cheomseongdae still stands until now in the old Silla capital of Gyeongju, South Korea.

Was the drama represent the real history of the queen ?
Not exactly, but the main story, characters, achievements, and strategy were real. There are differences of course, like in the drama, it was mentioned that Princess Deokman is Princess Chon Myong's younger twin sister. Actually, the history never mentioned that both princess are twin. And the appearance of Lady Mi shil.

Lady Mi Shil is a historical figure of Silla, but her existence is controversial because she is not mentioned in both Samguk Sagi and Samguk Yusa (Legend and History of the three Kingdoms of Ancient Korea). However, Lady Mi shil is a very important figure in Hwarang Segi.

Hwarang Segi is a a historical record of the Hwarang ( flower boys) of the Silla kingdom in ancient Korea. It is said to have been written by Silla historian Kim Daemun (704). According to Hwarang Segi, Lady Mi Shil was a daughter of Mijinbu the 2nd Leader of Hwarang (Pungweolju). Mijinbu's mother was Princess Samyup, the daughter of King Beopheung of Silla. Her mother was Lady Myodo. With these relations, Mi Shil gained the qualification of a noble within the bone rank system.
In the drama series, Mi Shil is a major opponent of Princess Deokman.

The Drama  

The drama is directed by Park Hong Kyun and Kim Keun Hong. MBC production. 50 episodes and due to audience attention was added by 12 episodes more. Writer Kim Young Hyun

The story takes place in the southeast Korean kingdom, Silla, which has been expanded by the late King Jinheung. An aristocrat named Mishil, whose power could rival a king's influence, desires to be queen. One opportunity comes when the wife of Jinheung's grandson, Jinpyeong, gives birth to twin girls.

There was a prophecy saying that if a king has twin girls, the male seeds in the royal bloodline will dry up, in other words, no proper royal male heir (Eochul Ssangsaeng Seonggol Nam Jin). Mishil and the nobles on her side plan to expose the twins so they can remove the current queen and get Mishil that position. In order to prevent this, Jinpyeong sends his youngest daughter away with a clumsy palace maiden, though not without huge regrets (he's shown shaking when he carries his oldest daughter). The maid, Sohwa, manages to escape pursuit with the help of one of the hwarangs (Silla equivalent of knights), Munno, the strongest hwarang in Silla.

15 years later, the younger twin, named Deokman, grows up in the Taklaman Desert in China, where she lives in a merchant town with Sohwa. She is cunning, witty, and a tomboy. She meets Chilsuk, one of Mishil's men who was sent to find the younger twin, who has been trying to carry out his lady' orders for FIFTEEN YEARS. Chilsuk later realizes that Deokman is the twin and tries to capture her, but fails when a sandstorm strikes.

Deokman resolves to go to Silla to find out why she was being pursued. When she arrives, she meets her older sister, Cheonmyeong, and future Korean general Kim Yu-shin. Five years later Deokman learns that she's the daughter of the king who abandoned her, and Mishil once again tries to expose her, while a noble loyal to the king sends assassins to kill her. Chunmyeong tries to help her younger sister escape, but is accidentally killed by one of Mishil's people. Deokman then resolves to get the royal court to reacept her as princess of Silla and fight Mishil in her struggle for power.

The drama is so addicting, thrilling, full of wisdoms, awesome, and I just feel that I can't get enough of it.

1. Beautiful casts

Lee Yo Won as Queen Seondeok
"The queen is my destiny" Lee Yo Won is a fine Korean Actrees that really suit in her role as Princess Deokman later Queen Seondeok. She could describe a smart, wise, brave, intelligent and righteous queen beautifully.

Go Hyun Jung as Lady Mi Shil
Mi Shil is a complicated character with many tactical strategy. She became powerful due to her relations with Kings and Poongweoljoos. She was the wife of Sejong, 6th Pungweolju, and was the major royal harem of 3 kings(Jinheung of Silla, Jinji of Silla, Jinpyeong of Silla). Also, she was in love with Prince Dongryun, eldest son of Jinheung, and Seolwon, 7th Pungweolju.

Her power was proved when she persuaded Jingol nobles to expel King Jinji from his throne. And her two sons (Hajong, Bojong) also became 11th, 16th Pungweolju respectively.
Go Hyun Jung is a brilliant actrees that make Mi Shil character become outstanding. She had the most audience attention within this drama

Eom Tae woong as General Kim Yu Shin
He's a great General of Silla and in love with Princess Deokman. But fate make this couple unable together. With a handsome face and outstanding battle skills, he became the leader of the elite Hwarang corps. With a grand vision of unifying the three kingdoms under Silla’s rule, he aligns himself with Princess Deokman who puts her complete trust in him. Princess Deokman later fell in love with Kim Yusin but they were unable to be together due to a twist of fate.

Park Ye Jin as Princess Cheon Myeong
She was Princess Deokman's twin sister. She's under Mi shil's influence. She has charisma and intelligence. After learning that she had a twin sister, she and Princess Deokman were reunited. While trying to reinstate her sister as a princess, she was accidentally assassinated by Mi-shil's man.

Kim Nam Gil as Bi Dam
He is Mi shil's son with King Jinji. Mi shil has abandoned him and he was taken as a student by Moon Noh - the best Hwarang Captain. Bi Dam also in love with Princess Deokman and make the story to be more interesting.

Bi Dam is like his mother Mi Shil, he also has a unique and complicated character. He could be charming, smart, funny, kind, energetic, hilarious person but suddenly he could become very fearful and mean.

3. The grandeur setting

This drama has many amazing settings. Really represent the great of Silla dynasti.

I really admire how Korean people brought up their history into movie or drama series. They really admire their history and are able to make other people from different culture eager to learn about their history.

The video above is one of the Original Soundtrack from Queen Seon Deok. An additional soundtrack that just released at January 8, 2010. The song is sung by Mr Kim Nam Gil who played as Bi Dam. The man who really loved the Queen but in the end their love story has ended just like that because of some miss understanding.

The Song is quite suitable with Bi Dam's character in these series. The one who is so lonely, insecure, covering all his pain with the smiles. What made it interesting because originally Mr. Kim Nam Gil is not a singer, but I just realized that his voice is quite good.

The lyrics and English translation :

Sa rang ha myeon an doe ni (Can't I Love You)
Singer: Kim Nam Gil (Bidam)


a pa do nan a peun jur mol la

English
Even it is so painful, I can't feel it
Even I'm waiting for you and you wouldn't come
Even I think of you with shaking so badly, I can't feel it

Since the day I put your heart in my mind
I can't put my heart else where
Even if it hurts and breaks my heart apart, I won't close my heart

I am who was living in a lonely world
You're the only one who can make me smile

Can't I love you? Can you come to me?
Just for once, can you hug me in you arms?
You're the only one I love
Can't you accept my heart?

The reason why I'm still breathing in this terrible loneliness
It's all because of you

Can't I love you? Can you come to me?
Once again, can you hug me in your arms?
You're the only one I love
For the first time and last time

Even you're alive, you can't be held in my arms
Even you throw my heart away from your mind

Can't I love you? Even if I'm just behind your back
Distantly, I just can look at you from afar
Even if I just can protect your shadow
Even like this, it's alright.. even only I love you, it's okay.

I watched quite a bit of this drama the other night because now in NYC I can pick up the Korean station MBC - well done!

My first time living in Korea I lived with a wealthy Korean family and the mother was a Shilla descendant and from Jeju - so I learned so much about the culture and history.

Thanks for a great hub!

BkCreative, yes, this drama is fantastic, right?! I think it will get some awards.

Wow, it must be awesome to live with people from other culture. I never had any chance like that yet. I think Silla is like tribe in my country now, I believe there are many Silla descendants that still alive in Korea. I read in one blog, that movie star So Ji Sub still the descendant from Lord Al Cheon of Silla.

Thank you for commenting. Have a great day!

We have a great liking here for Korean dramas (we call them Korea-novela). I don't know the title in your country, but I really liked the drama on King Ju-mong. This drama you featured will start airing in our local TV stations in January 2010 and the actress playing the lead role looks really familiar. Thanks for featuring her and the drama in your hub. Looking forward to watching this drama.


Viking1066 6 years ago

Great page about the show! Very informative.

This QSD-drama is one of the most rewarding tv-shows I have watched,I have most seen USA-shows before, but this...

And my favourite really is actress Lee Wo Yon as the Queen, not that Mi-Shil actress, as many others prefer.

It is with sadness we come to the conclusion that the queen's been dead for centuries and next year only a few will remember the feeling of the show gave them.

Sigh!

The Great Queen Seon Deok is the best Korean Historical Drama-after The Jewel In The Palace (Dae Jang Geum).

QSD have more complete desire, intrigue also smart dialogues in each episode.

I love tha acting of Go Hyun Jeong and Kim Nam Gil. As mother and son (Mishil and Bidam), they have a compelling acting :)

One of the Best Tele-Drama series that i have watch (in the Philippines) in fact if only if this can be compare to Movies like Troy ,Alexander , Last Samurai this one got that Hollywood level. The action and Drama plus the suspense is so intense cant wait for the next episode to be aired on GMA-7 but thanks to youtube i have watch "some" episode of it but not complete though neither way this one drama series is one of the Best Korean Tele-drama ever-ever 2 thumbs up them.

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Sembreaker, I really hope that Queen Seon Deok will be made into a movie like The Red Cliff or Last Samurai, I hope that big director like Ang Lee will consider to make it into a big screen. In my country this drama will reach its end, it's already episode 56 now, 6 episodes more, but I've already watched it until finish anyway :) I heard that Korean dramas are also loved in Philippines. Thank you for sharing!

BTW, just love the photo of Lee Yo Won wearing the crown. She really suits as Princes Deokman & Queen Seondeok.

It is good to see that Korea enjoys 'costume dramas' as much as the West. It tends to show (again) that there are really very few differnces between peoples around the world.

Jel, Hi good to see u, i like this drama too and about Lee Yo Won, I read in one interview that she really feel like the Queen after she wore the costume before they made the drama photo's billboard. Before she wore the costume, she admitted that really hard to portray the Queen, but after she wore it, she said that the Queen's character is her destiny :)

Hi..I'm done watching the entire series and it was a good story indeed. All I can say about the drama is---FASCINATING.


Megan 6 years ago

This drama was so addicting. The life journey of Queen Seondeok was so inspiring. I hope in real life she was the kind of person depicted in the drama, very smart & cunning yet had a very beautiful heart. I give credit to Lee Yo Won for playing the role so wonderfully. Although others were good too but I was more mesmerized by how she portrayed Deokman's character. This is indeed the most phenomenal Korean historical drama as I am now a Korean historical drama addict. Thank you so much for your article, it has given me more insights on Korean history. The Silla Crown & the Star-Gazing Tower are amazing!!! I wish I could see them in real life.

Blackrose, thank you for visiting and yes this drama still captivating me.

Megan, in real life Lee Yo Won has been married with a professional golfer and they have a beautiful daughter and yes.. Lee yo Won is a smart woman and she had graduated from Dankuk University. Yes, I would love to visit the Cheomseongdae myself, too If you'd like to see them, you may go to Geongju, South Korea. Thank you for visiting !

seise 6 years ago

im from the philippines, can't help but feel so fascinated about this drama and it hurts me a lot realising the queen and bidam's supposed love story ended in a tragic way...it feels like while watching it putting myself as the queen i can't imagine killing my own heart to reign and fulfill the grandiose dreams of her ancestors which is to unify the three kingdoms, and as to bidam's side the aspiration of becoming silla so that he can posess the girl she only loves....wahhhh can't help but shed tears to this....

seise, hi! this series are truly heart-robbing ..I can't find other new series yet that make me interest more than this QSD. Well, I think only Dae Jang Geum and Ju Mong that equivalent to this drama. Thank you for visiting and have a great time!


seise 6 years ago

Yah I've watched Jumong also seeing Munno in QSD I remembered he is the husband of Lady Sosiono who also plays a brave character, just made me sad that she was been married when Jumong return but then in the end they ended up together...however I am more fascinated and in love with QSD...Looking at the pictures of Kim Nam Gil's (Lee Han) as Bidam makes me think to visit Korea...if only given the chance but anyway I am just his big fan here in Philippines

Good to see u seise, ok so let's visit Korea someday haha..btw, Kim Nam Gil has already visited my country, even just for social mission, for our earthquake victims in Padang West Sumatra, unfortunately not one single of our local medias reported his arrival, many fans of his in my country have to dig everywhere and even camped in the airport to meet and hope can got a glimpse of him..sigh ..haha

Camille 6 years ago

Hi, this is a wonderful article. Glad to know something about the real Mishil. I hope she was not cruel in real life.

Anyway, I feel in love with Le Yo Won in this drama. Her beauty grows in me and it matures as her character in the drama grows. And I think she was remarkable. It's my first time to see her & I just love watching her, one reason I could finish this long drama. I am glad she was the one playing Deokman, she has the perfect charm, look & talent for it.

BTW, do you know the address of her agency? And could you share it with me, please? I've been wanting to send her a card but I don't know where to send it. Thank you very much.

tnx for the insight and review of this epic drama.i loved it so much so that i couldn't wait for another day to find out what's gonna happen next that i bought the whole set of dvds.so addicted to it that it even cost me sleepless nights just to keep on watching it.this is 1 epic historical drama which captivates ur heart,so touching and sad but also quite funny.well acted ande kudos to the main characters who have actually won awards,the transformation of DEokman to QSD is really well played out.whomever was the casting director really did a great job most especially to the characters who played the queen and the young deokman as they almost look alike.i loved kim yushin's character,hated bidam's insecurities but loved the way he acted out his character.great director as well coz he was true to his characters transformations.i was so addicted to it's story that i even if i did finish the movie already i am still at it checking out synopsis and summaries for each episode hence i stumbled upon ur link.tnxs a lot for sharing.btw the lead actress lee yo won has also starred in cruel love and i so love her character there as well especially with her partner there named yuan,but it is not as much as i love her in qsd.

too bad bidam died.

i cried in that scene..

but deokman didn't take it :(

and bidam's last words were.."deokman..deokman"

really touching...

jel era, hi, yes too bad Bi dam had to die, but in history Lord Bi dam was written as a traitor, so what could I say? It's a history's fact..sigh. I think what made Bi dam character so impressive was the great and sharp acting of Mr Kim Nam Gil who portrayed him so well and in a new way, in fact this is the first time Bi dam character has ever played in a drama. thank's for visiting :)

KC 6 years ago

I agree with Jaila. Seondeok was a great woman, she deserved a better man. I heard she was married in real life, hope her husband was not like Bidam at all.

BTW, I love Deokman & I wish she was partnered with Alcheon, he's cute & I love his character, very peaceful & righteous guy. Deokman could live with him peacefully because he had no other intentions but just to serve her. Yushin had the Kayans & Bidam had Mishil's blood & faction, it's so complicated to love & live with them.

Anyway, this is really a great drama. I've watched the whole series several times already, but I still can't get over it. I am really addicted to Queen Seondeok.


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Tella, yes Lady Mishil died in ep 50, in front of Bi Dam, she was supposed to wait for Deok Man, but Deok Man was too late, Mi Shil has ordered Bi Dam her last will and I think this was one reason that changed Bi Dam. No. I don't have their picture :)

KC, Lee Yo Won married with a professional golfer. Actually, in real history, Queen Seondeok had been married 4 times :)

Thank you for commenting :)

Hi tella, episode 22? It's the 2nd episode of Bi Dam's first appearance, and he'd like to exchange Deok Man with medicine right haha, he's such a hilarious and freak man, no, Yu Shin and Deok Man never married to each other. Yu Shin married Young Mo, Lady Mi Shil's granddaughter, Ha Jong's daughter. Nice to see u around :)


yvonne 6 years ago

i've watched all the episodes, i got hooked to it that i even made absences just to finish it. i am qsd fan here in the philippines,and it's really a great drama movie.everything fits, the actors give justice to their roles specially that of bidam. I really am fascinated with this particular character and I was hopeful that he and deokman would have a happy ending. i cried and was saddened with their love story, so tragic. in the end I had this hope that their story would end differently in accordance to my contentment. comparing the look of kim nam gil in real life and his role as bidam is like looking at the real orlando bloom as he portrayed legolas in the movie lord of the rings- so different. i hope gma 7 would invite the former here in our country along with other casts.I am so captivated by bidam, he is handsome, gorgeous, and so manly.thanks for this account that i had the chance to share my insights.


KC 6 years ago

4 times!!! That's too many. Is there a place or site where we can read about her husbands? I want to know what kind of people they were. Yes, I've searched Lee Yo Won and learned that she's happily married and has one daughter. I am happy for her. She seems to be a nice person.

who was princess chunmyung's husband?

when i watched one episode, I saw a man..

was that man Deokman's nephew?

the man who got marry with Bojong's daughter...

thank you..


KC 6 years ago

Thank you so much. I've checked them out but there were not much info about them except that they were her husbands & rule in place of her in times of war. I find it a little complicated because she was also married to Cheonmyung's husband. I wonder if these marriages were because of love or were just for political purposes. I wish there was enough authentic records about Seondeok's life & her reign as the queen of Silla. Because of how she was portrayed in the drama I came to like her a lot.


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Tella, hi, Princess Cheon Myeong husband was Kim Yong Su (King Jinji's Son)and yes, the man who married Bo Jong's daughter was Kim Chun Chu, Deok Man's nephew.

KC, Yes, I feel complicated too, because in the drama, Cheon Myeong's husband died because of the war, but Queen Seondeok is a real figure, so I think much of her live including marriage was influenced by political issues. That's reality and the drama was built for viewers eyes only. That's what I think. Thank you for visiting :)

I love it!!!amazing story, the cast was great, everything was awesome!...I got hooked with this drama after I've watched the first episode aired via GMA7 during my holiday in the Phillipiines. back here in New Zealand, I followed the story via veoh and youtube (thanks to those who uploaded it)...At first, all i want is to watch her became queen...but at the end, I was shocked because I can't stop my tears pouring and I can't explain it...


C-gil08 6 years ago

i just also finished watching queen seon deok,it's a nice korean drama,and i was big fan of Ju Mong and Jewel in the Palace all in all it was really great.

its airing right now here in the philippines thru kapuso GMA7 and i am watching it again,waiting for Kim Nam Gil to appear.i really like him as bidam,he so cool,childish,his eyes and naughty smile,he has a unique and complicated character,hes funny,smart and charming.And especially love deokman,yushin,alcheon,wolya and chunchu.And all the character you did the job well.

yes!i love deokman,and i wish too she was partnered with alcheon,hes so cute i love him very much.

i really dream to visit korea after watching queen seon deok i want to see the cast especilly bidam and alcheon.

Or good idea for cast to visit to philippines,you have many fans here and i'm one of them.

i've watched the whole series several times already,but is still can't get over it.i'am really addicted to Queen seon deok,i was crying on every episode cause the story was really really great,two thumbs up for this drama/series.

More powers to come....And g0d bless u all?

Yes I agree!!!QUEEN SEON DEOK is a great movie.very exceptional.the first korean drama aired in Philippine television was the ENDLESS LOVE autumn in my heart last September 2003.since then I started to research about their country and culture and even try to study their language..hehehe..very nice movie.it always come out in my mine.This is still airing here..I guess it was episode 20?

VERY NICE

hi just visit this site coz i really want to know the story of queen seondeok and to tell you frankly im addicted already to kim nam gil aka bidam...wow he's such a great actor and a handsome one soooo cute and smart..love him so much.

thanks for this nice info and pics..i got hooked on this korean drama when i first saw it on our local tv GMA7 since then i cant wait to see its next episode...first i looked at it on youtube and fortunately downloads were available but then its really not complete you'll have to wait for the next uploads of episodes...

wow i got eyebugs watching it

i've watched it for 5 days with only 4 hours of sleep a day...even extended to wee hours the next day

i wanna congratulate all the people behind this drama series for coming up with a great story and great casting more particularly kim nam gil..actually he's the one who liven up the story, his portrayal of bidam is so great that i got hooked on it and cried so hard on its last episode..i really felt his love for deokman...and how i wish i was queen seondeok..huhuhu!

right now im watching it again on our local tv and waiting for bidam to appear,aside from watching my dvd's everyday hahahaha...

i just want to know if bidam was really a character on the life story of QSD rather i mean in korean history or was just added to make the story compelling and to have an ingeneous and tragic ending...nonetheless bidam characterization has really caught my attention and kim gave justice to the said role, again he's such a great actor he can be funny and serious at the same time.

thanks and hope to see him and lee yeo won again in this kind of drama/series...and HOPE AND PRAY THAT THE CAST OF QSD WILL VISIT OUR COUNTRY THE PHILIPPINES ESPECIALLY KIM NAM GIL...THANKS AND MORE POWER TO YOU FEBRIEDETHAN

mai, philippines 6 years ago

I watched the last few episodes again......can't get over it! I have read in one blog that the drama was supposed to be up to episode 50 only but because of the good feedback on deokman and bidam they added 12 episodes. I also think that Bidam was not really specifically mentioned in wiki- of course this is a personal love story of the queen and who can she trust at that time......and because bidam was the enemy of the state maybe it was not elaborated that the queen and him have a real relationship for the queen's reputation. But I really believe that they do have that love story for real back then. I just felt so sad for the dream that deokman had for she doesn't have anyone she must hug herself and tell herself to endure it til the end. Too sad! I saw on one site that Yushin is really counted as a hero in Korea for he had his own statue and the tomb of QSD is the one in the movie. Awesome..............can't stop but admire this QCD drama!!!!! I am just wondering why QSD told Yushin to runaway then, and Yushin seeing the ring on her finger cried!!!! Is it because up til the end he cannot give what Deokman wishes from him???? Too sad but true! I have read also that in history Alcheon was suppose to be chosen as King but he refuse and carry on the plan of QSD and with Yushin they supporte Chunchu to be King!!!! Haaaaaayyyyyyyyyy.............. I will surely be in Korea one of these days!!!!


mai, philippines 6 years ago

Hi! Where can I find about Bidam War? I wanted to believe that Bidam's story is real.......it may not be written all over the wiki- but of course before they wrote the script of the movie they made some research right and the historians then would have written something about it. It was so amazing!!!! QSD exudes all my expectations!

sociopolitical-love story with balanced wit,action&drama depicted by such characters.. cant help but to have sleepness nights just to see the finale & alcheon of course haha! nice to hear from you guys, at least it's not only me who got this crazy! =)

I may be quite chauvanistic for I was at first unintrested with the series. but when watched it. it definitely is intresting. especially the politacal ploys equipped by the characters. actually, I as I started to watch the series, i incidentally just began reading the book of WAR by Robert Greene. the tactics of human politics are nicely delivered here. especially on how to deal with what they call a diamond plan...

k, take it easy, not just only you who have sleepless nights watching this serial haha, now you've come to the right place, great to see u!

Tella, ya..I know :)

Dax, the first thing that captivated me was the first scene of Lady Mishil, who rides a horse with mask and fighting the Baekje soldiers with great movements, and from that moment, I told myself I won't let one single of this series missed haha..

Dane, yes..that was most of our feeling about this drama. And even Kim Nam Gil did not satisfy with the love story between Deok Man and Bi Dam haha..


vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

hi, i just happened to came upon ur site, im still watching QSD and i felt that when i finished watching the whole series, il missed it so much. the story grows on me without me knowing it. Im sorry for all the people who liked Bidam, but in my opinion, Yushin deserved more to be with Deokman more than anyone else..He really showed his love through out the whole series and it really saddens me when i read that Deokman will eventually dies and their lovestory were not given a chance to bloom into something real..maybe it was better for deokman to run away with Yushin when they were given the chance to do so but then again we cannot re-write history (but how i wished that the production gave the series a better twist like letting them have their good happy ending)

Haha..sorry for breaking your heart, still we never know for sure about Yu Shin- Deok MAn real "love story", just who knows..thank you for visiting :)

hello, I am sure I am not th eonly one who has been enduring sleepless nights watching the Queen Seon deok series. I have finished it, after watching it twice, would you blieve? I just felt so bad because of the love story of QSD with Yushin and bidam. especially bidam who is so lovable adn adorable. Kim Nam-gil played his role very well, am sure, after QSD his life will never be the same again. When is he coming to the Philippines, hope he could one of these days, at least before he takes to his military training. His fans are waiting for him here, including me. hehehe. Suggestion, kindly tell him to keep his Bidam look, the long hair with a pony tail. or with a half-pony. LIke the one he sported in the final episode before he died. He made me cry many times. huhuhuhu!

mavel, hi! yes, I believe it hehe..in fact I did it too, but only for my favorite episode, like ep 21,22, 34, most of them are Bi dam's scenes LOL

You're right, Kim Nam Gil's life is like a dream now hehe and he has more fans than before, well, I think he deserves it, after a very long wait, he's really a brilliant actor, he's brave enough to take a difficult, controversial, and extraordinary roles. Like what he did in his movies, No Regret and Portrait of a Beauty. Just a smart actor, have a great day!

Ranel, yeah..me too :)

Hello to everybody!!!

I must say that I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! I never watch movies that have many episodes because i get bored... but this Korean drama was totally different from the movies i have seen... I'm from Romania and the drama is at the 34th episode and i always watch it like i'm hypnotized :P the actors and actresses are great...

P.S. Greetings from Romania & hope the best to you all!!!!!


vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

hi again!

im nearing the end of the series and i still cant get over over how good this series is, in fact for me its the best so far. But what i cant understand is the fascination of fans to Bidam, when Yushin should be adored much since he was so faithful to Deokman, he was the one who stuck with her through everything..

i really hoped that hancinema would again come out of historical drama in the future that is as good as QSD its so interesting and fascinating to learn Korean history

Hey guys,

this is what the real Queen Seon Deok looks like: http://imgur.com/W86w3.jpg

Hello Luiza, welcome to the club :) yes, this drama is so fascinating and will never made me bored :)

Big warm hugs from Korean drama lovers in Indonesia to Romania, thank you for visiting!

Vhenn, good to see u, I'm not sure too what's so fascinating about Bi Dam haha maybe because he's so complicated, or the way he fought, or his charm, or his deep and undeniable love towards the Queen, not sure haha..But If talked about trust, yes, you're right Supreme Commander Kim Yu Shin is much better than the SangDaeDeung or Prime Minister Bi Dam.

Oh yes, there is a new series that just enter the 2nd episode, the title is Dong Yi (MBC), about water maid who become King's concubine. (Starring by Ji Jin Hee and Han Hyo Joo) You may try to watch it :)

Booom, thank's for the image, could I add the image in my hub? Thank you for visiting!

Michelle, hi great to see you, if you mean Supreme Commander Kim Yu Shin, yes he's married to Yeoung Mo, Mi Shil's grand daughter, Ha Jong's daughter.

But if you mean Uhm Tae Woong, no he's still single, actually he's almost marry but broke up a few months before he got the Kim Yu Shin role, too bad.

Jasser, you're welcome. I love this drama too :)

Thank you for visiting and have a nice day!

Thank you everybody :)


Trish 6 years ago

I already watched the full episode of QSD and it was fascinating and somehow it made me cry to the last part of QSD. My tears wont stop. There's a lot secret bout them...

I love the character of Bidam but I cant blame Bidam for not trusting QSD.

Wish they could be together but thats the life of a Queen cant reach his hand till the end...

Im just wondering bout Alcheon... I think deep inside of Alcheon he has a feeling for deokman.

Coz its impossible for him not to fall for Deokman...

As for Bidam. I really like how he portrait Bidam. Hope u will have same character as Bidam.

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Trish, thank's for stopping by, yes, too bad I think Bi dam is too fragile and is not suit as politician, politic just too cruel for him, I think his teacher, Moon No was right, Bi Dam is better to go with him and live as warrior and priest :)

And Lord Al Cheon ...yeah who knows deep inside his heart..but I think more than just romantic feeling, I think the relationship between Lord Al Cheon and the Queen is like a trusted buddy and grew stronger and stronger in times. Al Cheon will never be a threat to the Queen that's what I think :)

Thank's for visitiing!


Yan 6 years ago

Hi everyone! I'm from Philippines! I've finished watching QSD but kept on watching it over and over again!! It's very addicting. I was just saddened by the ending. I hoped that Yushin and QSD ended up with each other. I admire men of those times where they really have that high respect for women. And also Yushin's love/devotion to QSD. I really admire his strength and commitment to the QSD.

I'm currently watching "Sad Love Song". It's the story of the 3rd daughter and the youngest sister of QSD and Cheonmyeong. She is Princess Sohwa who fell in love to a common people who later became the King of Baekje.


Yan 6 years ago

Sorry for the mistake. The title is "Song of Love" =)

Yan 6 years ago

Hi febriedethan..yeah..I bought it here in Manila and I was surprised to know that they have a younger sibling. She was disowned by the King because she feel in love with a lower class not knowing that the man was also a son of a King. The story is very much shorter than QSD since it only has 1 DVD unlike the QSD which comes in 3.I am waiting if they will mention QSD here.


vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

helu everyone!

just dropped by to ask a quick question, i was bewildered in the last chapters of the series, when i learned that QSD really fell in loved with Bi dam, when did it happened and she was even willing to marry him,augh! Is that because of the cliché, keep your friends close but even closer is your enemies, was that it, why she agreed to marry Bi dam? Did she fell out of love with Yushin?? I think ive got atleast 3chapters more to go and im already sad..


Luiza 6 years ago

Hello,

back again... i'm at the 37th episode... it's realy incredible how the action is devolving, i never thought that the Lord Mun-no will die :( Yu-shin got married... sad, so sad for Deokman...

Thanks!!! XOXO from me :P


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Yan, thank you for sharing, still don't have time to look for that DVD :)

Vhen, haha I'm not sure when did it happen either :) some of my friends said that love is mystery haha..maybe they just did that for drama's sake, maybe the drama maker thought that both Bi dam and the Queen had a long relationship as friends and subject, and also a lonely person, Bi dam is lonely, Deok Man is lonely, Deok Man was the first person who appreciate Bi Dam and I think that made Bi Dam fell for her, or maybe the Queen realized that she will no longer live, so they thought it's quite normal if they fell each other haha

Luiza, episode 37th and 38th, that's when the # 1 public enemy Yeom Jong start to affect Bi Dam and I hate it, but mostly fell sorry for Bi Dam who really so insecure and made Yeom Jong affected him easily.

Thank you for visiting guys :) Love ya!


yan 6 years ago

QSD fell in love with Bidam because he is the only one who made QSD felt like a woman.Unlike her relationship with Yushin which is always a ruler-subject relationship.Her trust for Yushin never changed until the end.It's just that there is something that Bidam can give QSD that Yushin can't give to her.


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Yan, yeah..that the best reason I think :) thank's


Jack from Philippines 6 years ago

I am also watching QSD and like everybody else who have watched the korean drama I fell in love with it, too, primarily because of the love of Yu Shin for QSD as depicted in the story. In the storyline, QSD also has feelings for Yu Shin but is feeling guilty of showing her love because of the death of her twin sister Cheon Myeong who loves Yu Shin. And Yu Shin chose to marry the grand daughter of Mishil because QSD can't reciprocate his love for her. As I read your comments, i felt sad that there was no love relationship that evolved between QSD and Yu Shin in Korean history. Maybe, the directors just added that factor of "love" to draw audiences' attention to watch the drama even more because people are interested on love stories. Though love stories are part and parcel of a movie, we can't change the history of QSD. I love Lee Yo Won since Fashion 70's, Surgeon Bong Dal Hee and Cruel Love and Eom Tae Woong. They portrayed QSD and Yu Shin at their best that's why people misconstrued that a love relationship developed between QSD and Yu Shin. It's a Director's cut.

Thankz for welcoming me here

@Yan

thankz for sharing the "Song of Love" gotta have it and watch it.

One thing caught me was the scene about the ring. I realized if they were in the room alone then QSD will cry or they'll never let go of each other but the director chose to have a scene on the garden or outside of it.

BTW just like to ask if u know some kind of historical drama of Korea just like QSD

i love to learn their history even if its fiction or epic.

Thankz

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Hi Jack, yes love is a movie/drama's attraction :) and they have to keep the feeling of Lord Yu Shin's descendants too, I think, so all the drama's interpretations will not change the history, thank you for commenting :)

boooom, ok and thank you so much :)

trish, hi good to see you again :) have you ever seen Jumong? it's a Korean historical drama too, 81 episodes, about the 1st King of Goguryeo.

Yi San is also historical and now the latest one is Dong Yi 50 episodes currently airing in MBC Korea.

Thank you for visiting guys!


vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

hi, there!

just want to comment on what yan had said, its not that Bi Dam could make her feel like a woman, there are many scenes that Yushin showed her love to her. And note that on the scenes that Princess Cheonmyong died and Deokman went back to Sorabeol, she was the one who requested Yushin not to treat her as a woman but as a soon to be queen. So Yushin seeing that there are no way that they could be together not unless for the sake of their Great Endeavor to unified the 3 Kingdom of Silla, treated as she wished. They had the subject-ruler relationship because Yushin had no choice on that matter..(this is only my thoughts feel freely to obejct, hehehe!)

But as other would say it, there were really no lovestory between Yushin & QSD, it was only a director's cut designed to attract more viewers..

thanks for having this site so that fanatics could interact with each other.


yan 6 years ago

Thanks Vhenn, their lovestory is really complicated. Yushin really has no choice . I remembered their conversation after she was acknowledged as leader of their group including the Wolya and Seolji, Deokman told to her self that she will just keep Yushin in her heart. I think because she knows that after she will be declared a princess, nobody can touch her or even call her by her name. Another is a line she mentioned in a later episode is that she loses her identity when she was crowned because people will just call her "Your Highness" instead of her name.

I think what makes Bidam different from Yushin is that Bidam is not afraid to call Deokman by her name, to touch her or to hug her. This I think is what made Deokman fell for Bidam. Unlike Yushin, who grew as a Hwarang and was taught how to treat and respect higher people even Deokman.

I'm not sure about Yu Shin and Deok Man.

Princess Cheon Myeong husband has died, so it's okay for her to marry Kim Yu Shin. Thank you for visiting :)

Hi Febrie, I saw a music video in Youtube showing some scenes in QSD..but aside from that, there are also scenes from a movie in a modern setting starring LYW and KNG (QSD and Bidam). Is it possible to have a movie where QSD and Bidam was reincarnated??? hahaha

Yan, actually, there was a modern movie called Soybean Paste (I don't know the Korean title), that is planned to be starred by LYW and KNG, but the Producer changed the stars in the end and KNG is out, he's replaced by Kim Dong Wook.

OK, we have to make some pleads or something to the Korean movie industry, so that LYW and KNG will play in a same movie again..deal?!

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

k, hi! welcome back :) I'm not sure how Hwarang Im Jong related to Lord Yong Chun, there is no explanation about that, but I have many suggestions :

1. Maybe Imjong rang is Lord Yong Chun's relative

2. Maybe Imjong rang wanna pay a good deed to Lord Yong Chun, so he decided to follow Lord Yong Chun.

3. Maybe Imjong rang followed Lord Yong Chun on his own free will like what Al Cheon, Yu Shin, and Bi Dam did to Princess Deok Man.

It's a common thing those days, when a nobleman like Lord Yong Chun had a private warrior, what do you think?

Have a nice day k..:)

I've watched the series it was great. I saw a movie that was shown on local tv years back that has numerous similar scenes with the series. Onescen e I can clearly remember, is that the ending on the movie and on the series is EXACTLY the same, where the lady on seon deoks dream was revealed. I didn't bother to know the title of that movie then coz it was in english sub, but now I'm dying to see that film again.

You did a very good presentation of this drama. It's the 4th korean drama that I watch on TV. The first drama aired nationally was the Jewell in the palace, and soon after Yi-San that made a good audience. So, romanian television continue the transmision with Damo and now, Queen Seon Deok.

I was so impressed by korean values and traditions. I took notice on culinar tradition watching Dae Jang Geum and I've learned alot about korean traditional clothing and customs. I must say I was a little ignorant about it.

Queen Seon Deok is an intresting drama with good characters. I must say that I didn't like it from the start, the beginning part was a little too confusing and boring (at least for me), but slowly get my attention. Bi-dam's character was the key succes factor of this drama.

One think that I didn't understand was Mi-Shil's position. She was married twice so she was polyandry? or she was just a concubine for several men, including the two kings. Anyway, Go Hyun Jung is a great actress that made Mi-shil character become outstanding. Hope to see her in another movies.

hi everyone! i've been reading your comments and reviews here about QSD for quite a while already...i just finished watching the series. i'm a Yushin-Deokman fan here :)

the ending was sad, not because Bidam died and QSD died also...but because Yushin and Deokman were not given the chance to be happy together..it really frustrates me and gives me sleepless nights thinking what if there was a SUPER BIG TWIST in the story, or what if the writer had written an alternate ending for the story...an ending that would pacify me, huhuhuhuhu!!!

bideok, yes me too!

acrolyte, Lord Yu Shin is very honorable man and so sad because both of them chose the dark and cruel road to the power, but there will be no Unification of Shilla if Deok man and Yu Shin did not sacrifice themselves.

Luiza, well having you here is make me happy hahaha...well maybe in ep 57 and 58, when there is a bond between QSD and Bidam, the warmer side from both characters.

Hi, nice movie review, I really like Queen Seon Dok a lot... including the transformation of the lead characters... I really love it when Deokman and Yushin fights in the story and they are adorable when they are expressing in a way the supressed love.and I really found it one of the most touching scene in the story..the attention they give to the scene where princess deokman was lamenting Yushin's marriage to Mishil's granddaughter was short but you can feel it...I really like it too when Yushin said Silla is the only thing that connects him with Her Majesty... that as man he cannot separate what his heart said from what he must do... so he continued to be at deokman's as a loyal subordinates suppressing his love... nice to see something like this at least I can express everything the I realized in the story.... I learned to pay attention about the word devotion, and how to endure pain just to reach your goal... I love lee yo won...


cel 6 years ago

I have a question will 2nd marriage at that time would mean a concubine... if you remember at the later part Jukbang asked Queen Seon dok to consider tying the knots with Yushin Rang, and we all know that Yushin was already married to meshil's granddaughter?what will be the queen's status if she married Yushin? and you think she did not consider Yushin anymore to again protect the throne considering she may not conceive at that time and Yushin's son has meshil's blood? am I making it complicated? just your opinion please.... yes you're right looking at the area of love story, Queen Seon dok is really sad,coz as ordinary Human may have a hard time not to follow our hearts..but looking at what Silla achieved, indeed very succesful but you see at the back of the success is the sadness of one's unfulfilled love....

Hi cel, I think the Queen status will remain the same, but Yu shin's may be change, Yu Shin may become The prince consort. Why the Queen declined to marry Yushin , I think because the Queen intended to give the throne to Prince Chuncu and avoided the chaos in the Hwabaek council, because Yu shin is Gaya's descendant, and Yu shin himself intended to become a person who had a big influence in Unification of Shilla, he didn't need the throne but people will remember him as the one who united Shilla.

That's what I think :) thank you for your comment, really nice to read all your opinions about QSD, this is so fun !

Bideok, in episode 57-58, the Queen admitted she's in love with Bi Dam :)

Yan, good to see u and thank's for the link :)

famela magalang 6 years ago

lady mishil was a great actress and the way she act was very unique and i hope she can visit here in philippines


cel 6 years ago

Hehehe maybe because I like it a lot, oh yes I remember that scene with Bidam, but at the latter part before the queen died, she was with Yushin, well my dvd has a not so clear translation in that part because it was not very clear to me what was the queen was saying but, but it was like she was talking about running away, was it she was just recalling the time when she and yushin almost run away? and was there also a mention of "the first man who hugged me"? so at the end she was no longer in love with Yushin? but well overall I love their devotion for one another.

But you know watching QSD again I found out the yushin is a first degree cousin of Deokman because Yushin's mother is the king's (deokman's father) sister. the father of chunchu was king jinji who was the uncle of the King of Silla. So that's how they were in the palace it was like really limiting it to the family to maintain the sacred bone line...

I really like this part sorry cant forget which episode, the one when Yushin Rang knelt before Mishil offering his allegiance to their group and behind him was deokman, and mishil while telling yushing to marry someone from their clan was looking at deokman sarcastically... great great acting....

Nice meeting you miss what is your first name and how can I address you.. This is really nice... talking about the film.. thanks


cel 6 years ago

my Correction I mean the father of Chunchu is the son of dethroned king jinji who was a brother of the King's father (deokman's grandfather)

am I right looks like inspite of the success in Silla, Queen deokman died very sad coz she was not emotionally fulfilled, and she lost all her beloved... very touching story...... made me feel like if I found a with the kind of yushin rang I will not let him go..hahahah. gee when will I get over this Queen Seon Dok....I will watch it again before I sleep this evening....

About Yushin and Deokman's love for each other, it was very evident in some scenes from the time that deokman's real identity was not yet revealed, when Yushin was looking for her in the mud right after the war, I guess at the time he was falling in love with deokman already.... too many suppressed emotions but they are good actors and actress, you will not require a love scene to feel the love... deokman's reaction when Yushin Told bidam to rescue deokman and he will be left at the palace, I guess this was during the coup.. hahaha too many stories to tell.... I love it when deokman call him "Yushing rang", made me imitate her and made me add "rang" to my dog's name

Famela, Mishil is my favorite too :)

cel, yes, the Queen mentioned about run away with Yushin. Yu shin is Deokman's cousin. In those times, it usual to protect the sacred blood by marrying cousins or close relatives.

Yushin knelt before Mishil was ep 37, when he agreed to marry Youngmo, Mishil's granddaughter.

Yes, Queen Seon deok was known as the lonely Queen.

You add "rang" in your dog's name? haha..it's a good idea, great to talk to you too cel! And you can call me febrie :)

HI febrie this is cel, hihihi, I am still watching QSD and I am on Episode 42, the translation in some are quite disappointing, it has no essense at all, very different from the one I saw in video at youtube... If I am going to buy a QSD DVD what version should I get?

Question Febrie, why was Yushin Embarassed? would it be a no? or simply because at that situation, it was impossible to run away? hehehe am i making it complicated again?

hope you'll visit me in hub too, Only one article yet about lee yo won...

hi febrie question not yet related to QSD, please tell me what the score of my blogs means?

About Bidam, his skin color was made darker in QSD but still he is goodlooking...even my 70 year old Aunt noticed it.


Luiza 6 years ago

Hello!

How r u all? I have a couple of questions: why Bi-dam is punishing Yu-shin telling that he is still in the Gaya Resistance? Wol-ya wants Yu-shin to the king... i guess... right? Yu-shin is the one who kills Bi-dam in the final episode? :P

I begun to dislike Bi-dam because he is not like Yu-shin, he was indeed loyal to the Queen from beginning to end...

Thanks! XoXo


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Maria, Hi welcome to Hubpages! you may buy the DVD online in Amazon or Hancinema, I think they had series with English subtitles.

Yu Shin embarrassed because I think he's no longer think about the runaway anymore, Yu shin is so captivated by the unification of Shilla things and I mean she IS the Queen, so I think Yu Shin won't dare to runaway with her anymore. That's what I think :)

hahaha...woman always know about good looking guy no matter how old she is, your Aunt is rock :)

And about the hub score, please visit this :

http://hubpages.com/community/Hubscore#mod_679326 by darside, he had gathered all the information about hub score, you may learn from him :)

Luiza, We're rock !! haha..good to see u :)

I think because the Queen had already dismissedd the Gaya Resistance, and without Yu Shin's knowing, Wolya rebuilt that grup, so Bi Dam think this is also Yu Shin's fault because he's the Supreme Commander, Wolya's leader.

Bi Dam is a fragile man and the Queen knew it, that's why she sent Bi Dam away, but unfortunately, Bi Dam always had his own agenda and let Yeom Jong influenced him.

Thank's guys for all your comments, have a nice day!

Hi febri thanks for following... I am in the 46 episiodes now and I again I was thrilled with the Queen's reaction when Yushin Rang decide to stay so that she and the rest can leave the palace freely... I guess the Princess had forgotten that she was a princess because she was shouting yushin's name and almost freak out.. hahaha again.... Yushin-QSD love


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

by the way I love the songs they played in QSD the one playing during yushin's wedding, i guess it was the same song when the princess escaped from the palace and yushin was left to continue the fight...would you know the title... is there a QSD soundtrack?


Luiza 6 years ago

I want to know when Deok-man realizes that she's in love with Bi-dam... I'm at the 53th episode and until now I don't see this LOVE between them...

I miss Mi-shil HAHA :)) she was the SALT and PEPPER of the movie...

Thanks! Have a nice day!

Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

oh sad I thought she just liked Bidam but still the true love is Yushin hihihi

question, the Bidam-QSD love, i wonder if their treatment for each other were obvious in the latter part of the drama, I mean, Yushin-QSD' devotion is obvious all throughout, in fact even after Bidam's proposal, jukbang is suggesting still a conjugal ties between Yushin and QSD? and reading to some sites, it looks like the queen is considering to choose Bidam? am really confuse, hahaha funny that I want to hear it from you Febrie, when I can watch it again and again...

does the queen really said it was Bidam that she truly love...? making it complicated again hihihi


Luiza 6 years ago

Hi again!

In the 54th episode Bi-dam hugged the Queen and after that she told Bi-dam that she would not let him possess her, why's that? Did she realized that she had feelings for him? OMG, it's driving me crazy this... why doesn't he tells her that he's IN LOVE... eeeh... too bad for them...

Yu-sin had a secret mission from the Queen but he is accused of spying, what happens in the end?

Thanks febrie! u rule ;)


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Hi Maria...:)Yes, the Queen considering to marry Bi Dam after she admitted her feeling to Bi Dam in front of Mi shil's altar. But Bi dam also made a secret vowed with the Queen that after the Queen died, Bi dam will leave Shilla's political world and live quietly. Yeom jong discovered the secret agreement and this caused the rebellion in their faction. The Queen also admitted her feeling that the last thing she really want to do is live quietly with Bi Dam until she die, she said this to Yu Shin.

Luiza, I think what the Queen means is, Bi Dam would never possess her as a woman, she's the Queen that resembles Shilla, possess her means possess Shilla. In a political world like that, simple love like Bidam's is like a threat to the Queen.

In the end, the Queen raised Yu Shin as the Supreme Commander with ultimate power to take all the necessary actions to save Shilla.

Guys, you're rock!! thank's


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Febrie kinda confusing hahahah... if they have the kind of secret vow, the did it lead to Bidam's rebellion? or is it because Bidam's character has a dark side? wow I thought it was QSD- yushin Till the end.... or did the queen realized it, when she died and married to Bidam, most probably Bidam will never leave silla but will take the throne? but honest looking back on how Bidam rescued the princess in many occassions, it was really sad that they had to end it that way.... why Bidam can't stay as good and he is and not dead... hihihi.

Anyway QSD's life is really sad coz all her love ones died before her eyes, in real life that is really sad....


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

another question, remember that ring the QSD wore when she died, did it have a significant?


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Maria, because Yeom Jong found it and Bi Dam's faction did not like it, if Bi dam promised to retreat from politic world, how about them, they just feel that Bi dam back stabbed them, so behind Bi dam's back, they gathered the power and arrange the rebellion. Yeom Jong had to convince Bi Dam that the Queen wanted to kill him, and unfortunately, Bi dam believed that evil Yeom jong.

Only in last minutes, Bi dam realized that all were Yeom Jong's plans, but it's too late, and Bi dam decided to die as a rebel for the Queen's sake and for his love. That's why Bi dam decided to come to the Queen's tent and received his death and not run away, just to meet her for the last time, Bi dam wanted to say that he loved the Queen.

About the ring, it's the ring that QSD wore after the coronation and she made another one, look alike hers for Bi dam, there were only 2 rings like that in Shilla, the Queen's and Bi dam's. I think the Queen wore it because she used to wear that ring and maybe now it had an additional meaning for her, her promise/love for Bi dam.

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Febrie I have another comment, I've notice in few last episodes, as if everybody was suggesting conjugal ties, and I think it was open, jukbang and the wolya, suggested it to yushin and of course Mishil Group want it to be Bidam... amazing culture... looks like they consider marriage for greater influence.... at least I guess the real marriage in the story was the one that never happened, before Princess chumeong died, when Yushin and Deokman were ready to leave together away from Silla.... at least no secret vows, etc... but it did not happen or not meant to be.. what will happen to Silla without Yushin and Mishil will probably rule forever...

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Now I realized why the story is really sad, when it comes to Bidam's part, and sad too that Yushin is out of the picture hahahah... if they will make a sequel to it, something like reincarnation, I will be very sad because it cant be yushin anymore hihihi.. thanks Febrie for your answering our comments no matter how crazy they were..

vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

hi all!

its been a while since i last dropped by and there were so many comments posted, i conrgatulate febrie for having this hubpage its truly a forum for us QSD-addicts hehehe!

question reagrding mai, phil: what chapter exactly you said that when Yushin saw QSD's ring, he cried, i haven't noticed it and i want to go back on that scene?

comments were really divided as i read the posted comments, some are are really into Yushin-Deokman lovetem, like me heheh, im such an avid fan of them two and the others are in-loved with Bidam-Deokman loveteam, nevertheless, we are really attracted by the same korean epic-lovestory.

kudos to the filmmaker! its worth, waiting for another like one of this..


Luiza 6 years ago

Hello Febrie and u all!

I wish that the actors/actresses of the Korean drama to read our comments to see that we are devided in 2: Deokman/Yu-sin and Deokman/Bi-dam... haha... and they in their turn to say something. Maybe one day they will answer us. (Do they know English????)

I finally begin to understand why the story is so sad. Bi-dam even though he was mischievous so many times he would have lived happily ever after with the Queen. Bi-dam found at Deokman the love he never had, the love he needed so desperately...

Thanks! Have a nice day! ;)

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Hi Maria, you might be right, without Yu shin, Mi Shil could be rule forever in Shilla, but there will be no unification of Shilla also, because Mi Shil will rule in tyrant and she will destroy Gaya for sure. Mi Shill may lead Shila to ruin. Like what Deokman said to her, because Mi Shil did not have the dream and she's not Shilla's owner. Haha..I love to answer all the comments about QSD because I'm a fan too :)

alecs gelindon, oh that scene really heartbreaking yes..you're right! thank's for visiting!

Hi Vhenn, good to see u again, I miss u haha...I think they mean about the last scene, episode 62, and you're right, Korean film makers are amazing haha...

Well vhenn, recently I watch Dong yi online, the latest MBC Saeguk, I think it's quite entertaining. Thank's for visiting :)

Luiza, some of them (the Korean Actors) understand, some are not, and the Korean used to search everything in their own language so I'm not sure if they read this haha..unless I translate this hub into Korean.

Yeah, poor Bi Dam ...

Anyway, thank you for all the comments have a great weekend guys :)


hanski 6 years ago

hi febrie! and to all who are here. im so glad to stumble upon this hubpage. im also very much a qsd fan. you got a good review of the movie and am fascinated with the comments. im from the Philippines.

it was really a sad ending. i cried at ep 62,when bidam finally met his death. they were really meant to be dead..i guess the moral of the story is that we make our own destiny. i figured that even if munno predicted bidam and deokman are meant to be together, their decisions and actions negatively affected what is supposed to be a long lasting legacy for both of them.

deokman loved bidam to the point of being ready to abdicate the throne and pass it on to chunchu her nephew just so she could spend the rest of her days with bidam. bidam, however, has a very complicated character (kudos to KNG for portraying the role so convincingly and effectively). Chunchu and even yushin even recognized that both are in love with each other. but as chunchu said ..."would others let them be?...history has no place for a man driven by his devotion..." which is what exactly happened to bidam.

if the yushin-deokman love angle was complicated, the bidam-deokman's was highly politicized. well, i guess in the world of politics, this is true even during these days. for someone like bidam, who experienced loneliness and rejection at a very young age, you can understand where his insecurities are coming. first with munno, then mishil. even deokman admitted she was trying to push him away because she fears that her feelings for bidam "...does not befit a ruler."

bidam could have done something to regain the throne after his mother mishil died knowing full well he is a direct sacred bone lineage being a son of king jinji but he did not do it. he was a man torn between two most important women in his life: his mother and deokman. after deokman regained the throne, he chose to be a loyal follower. same as yushin. but there was always a question of confidence between the two of them: who does deokman trust most? yushin or bidam? it was obvious deokman wants both of them on her side. but deokman finally realized it was bidam who fulfilled her longing to feel and be a woman. something yushin wasn't able to give her. that was the start of their love story. i kinda liked that part where they made their pact in front of mishil's shrine. of all places, ironic, isn't it?

i wanted to wring yeomjeong's neck for scheming behind bidam's back. he was a rat and trying hard to be a king-maker...he wanted to do that with chunchu (in the earlier episodes) but decided he was a moppet so later he found bidam more suitable for the kingship. of course, chunchu was not as feeble as he initially projected, he was actually scheming too. i think chunchu also found bidam a big threat that's why he attempted to plant seeds of doubt on bidam and deokman. sadly, negativity ruled and bidam succumbed to it because of his trust issues.

yeomjeong was right: "fear is your greatest enemy." =(

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

I finished the film and I understand very well now... Sad for Yushin and QSD, but if we looked back, Deokman was the reason why Yushin has a firm decision when it comes to Gaya. Remember that he risk life to negotiate with Gaya movement, and they were the biggest support of Deokman until she was recognized as princess...even when heprotected gaya in the latter part, it is still for Deokman's protection coz he said it, he can't take it that Gaya will forever hold resentment to QSD. even if he said earlier the his feelings will end even before Deokman became a princess, their devotion for each other was obvious. Deokman sa no doubt first in love with yushin, she cried when he got married, she was hysterical when yushin was left in the palace during the Mishil's martial law. Even in the latter part, before she chose Bidan, he still asked Yushin What about me?... and the turning point is Bidan is more courageous to make her feel like a woman...but what I like about the story is the openness of feeling, remember that scene when Yushin Congratulate Deokman, he admitted he was disheartened but he admitted too that he can't give her the solace or comfort that Bidam can give her....I mean the fruit of all his sacrifices for QSD is the inability to give her love and support...

About Bidan-QSD, they had a good beginning... Bidan was the witness of her devotion to Yushin, and she even cried to him when Yushin got married....but it was a love to really cry about....and Bidam;s follower took advantage of his weakness and that is his love for QSD... though I am Yushin-Deokman fan, the fate of Deokman Bidam love story really saddened me.... hope to see them really again in a different role.

about the ending, the ending is making me saddest.... Deokman;s dream and what she was saying in that part...but really nice film, to affect us like this too much ohh... can we make another hub like, if you are the writer what ending would like to write for QSD?

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Hanski, hi good to see you :) About the nuptial rings, I'm not sure about the history, try this site :

http://www.koreaaward.com/kor/110 it's about Korean history, maybe you will find something there.

Or maybe you can try this : http://rubygarden.tistory.com/

That's a Korean site, you may find anything but you have to translate it first to English with Google translate.

I have read about Shilla's jewelries from that site, but I forgot the link. Real Shilla's jewelries and there are also many kind of rings made from gold, silver, and jade.

Hope it will help you :)

Remember the scene at the mountain right after Bidam rescued Deokman,and Yushin arrived when everybody was already defeated by Bidam?, remember that in exchanged for a chicken again, Yushin gave his leather armour to Bidam, in the blooper, Yushin had a hard time taking off that armour and and they were all laughing especially LYW..you will enjoy watching it for sure..

vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

my greetings to all!

i agree with febrie, hanski you gave a very good review on QSD. and yes i found out that they were referring to the last scene, before she died. I finally got the courage to watch the last 3chapters the other day(i kept on hesitating to see the end hoping and praying that the ending for me will be different, but i guess i need to wake up in reality that their ending was a sad one, huhuhu), although the translations really sucked, i managed to understand its gist. what more can i say, the story in whole is quite riveting and really sad. Personally, i think QSD subconciously was emulating Lady Mishil but she was trying to be a better version of her. she wants to do good by her country & her people which Mishil cant do bec. bec she was consumed by her ulterior motive to be the queen.

i think the most heart-breaking part for me is not the QSD saw Bidam died right in front of her eyes and she cant do anything about it, it was the part when she hugged the younger deokman, admonishing herself to be strong bcoz she knew what will come ahead and that she will be destined to a lonely queen.

its good to hear though that the love story that was not meant to be between Yushin-Deokman came true with Chunchu and Yushin's sister...

Luiza, both of them, the Queen discovered first but there is nothing she could do about it and finally Bi Dam discovered it when San Tak arrived with the truth, but it's too late and the Myeonghwal Sanseong had already conquered by Yu Shin's army.

Luiza, the final was the hardest part to watch sigh..thank you for keep visiting, and what Korean drama will be air in The Philippines after QSD?

There is no exact rule in my local TV to air the Korean Drama, our local TV don't air the same Korean Drama like in Korea. Now there is My Fair Lady in my local TV, what about yours?

It's really nice to chat with you Luiza :) Love all the QSD's fans, have a great weekend everybody!!


Luiza 6 years ago

Hi Febrie! I'm sorry, but are u asking me about what will be air in the Philippines? I don't know, because I'm from Romania... hehe... at us the first korean movie was Jewel in the palace, the 2nd Yi San and 3rd The Great Queen Seon Deok and now they will give once again Jewel in the palace... i want that because I haven't seen it.

Thank's Febrie, it's really nice to chat with you too and forgive me for asking so many questions :P:P:P hehe

Anyway, in the final episode when Yu-shin told the Queen that the last word said by Bi-dam was "Deokman" she started to cry and what she understood??? that he loved her??? or??? uuuuh, i can't get out of my mind this sad ending...

before the Queen died what she tried to say to Yu-shin? she thanks to him for being there for her by her side, right??? hehehe

Thanks!!! kisess and hugs ;)


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Oh Luiza I'm sorry, I must be mistaken you from the Philippines :)I should ask Maria about this.

I'm not sure why QSD cried, I think after Princess Deokman become Queen, it's prohibited to call her Deokman, it may considered threat. But Bi Dam didn't care about that, he just loved Deokman, end of story haha..

I think Bi dam will always love Deokman no matter she will be the Queen or not, and remember, QSD signed her last letter to Bidam under the name Deokman? I think the Queen missed Deokman so much too. Deokman represent her freedom, her youngster, her love, her feeling, her spirit, her passion, and many more that have to leave behind after she become Queen.

I love to talk about this series too, will never get enough of it haha, make me want to watch it again, online :)Thank's for visiting Luiza !!

Febrie I think I know why QSD cried because for the last time Bidam want to make her feel what she longs for. to be called by her first name because when she became a princess and a queen no one called her by her name anymore... at the end QSD misses to be called by her first name.....

not sure about those koreanovela which the usually showed in the afternoon which I failed to watch because I was at work at those time... I can only speak about the primetime where QSD is being shown here in Philippines... They are not promoting yet because we are still at the number 30 plus episode, last night it was Yushing Rang preparing for the contest of PUngwoljo, maybe few more episode before Yushin's wedding... well it still a long way to go...so GMA is not promoting yet what next... hope it's another lee yo won drama...or Uhm Tae wong... or Kim nam gil..

I am making an article about the love angle in the story hihihi, for me to have a record of it...hihihi...

Vena, yes I think that too :)

Thank's guys for visiting!!

Hi Febrie, im back :) actually, I’m also a Filipino. I have read some of the comments posted on your hub. I saw that you are looking for other Koreanovelas that will be aired here in the Philippines. I saw the commercial of the “East of Eden” last time. I don’t know yet what it is all about. And every weekday afternoon there were also some Koreanovelas aired on QTV 11. Ahmm.. such as Beethoven Virus, Formidable Rivals, Night after Night. Also from TV5 were High Kick and Smile You. ?

After I watched QSD all I want to do is to kill Yeomjeong! If I really can?!=) ? I totally love the Bideok love team.:) And also I am an avid fan of Kim Nam Gil. I first saw him in My Lovely Kim Sam Soon (My Name is Kim Sam Soon) and in Be strong! Geum Soon where he played a role of Geum Soon’s husband and died after a car accident. And Geum Soon was portrayed by Lady Seoseono in Jumong, if I’m not mistaken. By the way, when I read about his plan in joining a military training, I want to kick him hard (actually I’m good in kicking someone’s butt? haha![reminded me of Bi Dam teasing those Hwarangs about poking their butts! Haha] my sister said to me coz she experienced it lately..:) and tell KNG that there were many “obsessed” KNG fans here in the Philippines. Before he leave, he must visit us first! ? haha!!! And I’m sure all his Filipino fans will do everything to stop him joining that military training. Maybe he cant go back to Korea after visiting the Philippines. Haha!!! But in real life, what can we do to change his decision.. ahhww..:( I really love the song “cant I love you” I’m really amazed! I also love Lee yo Won and specially Mr. Go Hyun Jung! =)I really learned a lot from you hub. Thank you, thank you!!! Actually I am now a fan of yours! Hahaha!!!=) keep it up!!!=)

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

KNG at KIM sam soon, who among those characters please help me recall, and he was the husband of Geum Soon at be strong? I will need to watch that again but it was a short role....

Anyway the more I watch QSD the more I understand the love story...hahaha I have resentment for the way Yushin Rang stick to his kind of devotion...I can feel for the queen, Yushing Rang's reasoning is making her lonelier, and it was a relief to have bidam. remember this scene when the princess killed those villagers those she gave a chance and yet disobeyed, her hand was shaking, and though yushin rang consoled with her, it was in a way to remind her to be firm of her decision as a ruler, it's like a path the she will walk alone and he is behind her... bidam was different, he was concerned about the princess, even told her about acupuncture... well even in the real life, when you are disheartened with somebody and then there is someone who willingly comforted you without reserve... I am not surprised she chosed Bidam in the end.... bad ending really.. they just let them get married and no death...


oceansclear 6 years ago

Thank you so much for uploading this youtube clip of Mr Kim Nam Gil singing Can't I love you? I was moved to tears when I saw him visiting the kids at the home and he looks great wearing glasses too. Too bad, is there any way to contact him? I just wish to congratulate him for winning the awards at Queen Seon Deok and wish to encourage him to keep working hard in his role. I really liked his Bi Dam character very much and I honestly think his acting is realistic, esp. the nuances and varied hues in a person's emotions are well captured in Bi Dam.

Anyway, I'm his newly converted fan. Unfortunately I only started watching the show from episode 47. Hahaha

Welcome back Kaye, thank you for letting me know about the drama that will air on your local TV, I just want to compare it with my local TV. Now, we watch My Fair Lady, but it will finish soon and I think it will be replaced by Mr. Goodbye (old series), I don't know about East of Eden too, should I make a hub about it ? Digging everywhere ? haha..

Ah..I wish I could ask Kim Nam Gil-sshi to hold his military duty haha, but actually he had been to Indonesia early January, but just for social works, you may see the picture here :

http://hubpages.com/politics/Plan-Internationalorg...

He really did many works in my country but unfortunately our local media not mentioned about it, sigh...

You may search from You tube with keyword, Kim Nam Gil Padang Indonesia, and you will find videos with his voice as the narrator, he's really has a great heart. Some of Indonesian fans camped in our local airport in order to meet him and many did succeed but he just smile and refused to take a picture, but somehow he told them that one day he'd like to have fan meeting in Indonesia, but don't know when :)

Hi Maria, well first I can't recall KNG in My Name is KSS too, but finally I found out, KNG as Dr. Kim Byeong Tae, Yoo Heejin's colleage friend, I can't believe it, how can I miss that? Well, Bi Dam role really a great jump for his career, actually he's a great actor, but there is time I believe that somebody will really see him like what happen now.

Btw, if you watch Personal Taste, there is a cameo appearance of him in episode 11, aired yesterday, he basically did nothing, just sit down, enjoyed his coffee and read a book, but his appearance made the other actress faded haha..I'm serious.

HMP! i hate it! tinggal nila QSD during friday. Well, amp! i really love it. This show always make my mouth fell open. I just realize that my mouth is open during the commercial break! haha:)) well im addicted to it nah! my wallpaper in the computer is QSD. and literally my WALLpaper is QSD! Bi Dam is really on e of a kind, i just love him soo much becuase he's so intellegent. I just cant accept the fact that his mother is Lady Mishil!!!

well, i'm excited of what will be the ending.. i dont want to spoil myself, so i decided not to buy dvd of this. I'm gonna support it all the way, until the very end in the television...


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Febrie, shaira said she hated it because our local tv station here in the Philippine stopped showing QSD on Friday, they used to show it 5 days a week...

Shaira, everybody who watches QSD experience this certain kind of magic that even if they watch the whole thing, they still cant get over it.... I already watched it in dvd, because I wanted to see how they really speak, but I am still watching them in our language coz not all translations in the film are good.. I am still watching it everytime I have time, and I guess I need to make a write up on my own analysis of the love angle in the story... and go to youtube and look for QSD Bloopers part I, you're going to love it for sure


rachael18 6 years ago

Kaye, you're welcome. Well, I'm in Indonesia and I did not meet KNG too, I just live 2 and half hours from Jakarta, still did not meet him haha...

Maria, thank you for the translation :) and I think KNG looks more mature now and maybe because his decision to use his own name rather than Lee Han, I think it give a big differences to his career too.

Shaira, thank you for visiting!!

I love QSD. I watch it again and again. Since I am a Filipino, It's really hard for me to understand much but the story is so great. Unfortunately , it breaks my heart to see those beautiful people to end in tragedy. I really appreciate that Deokman and Bidam are in love. Anyway, there is no better ending.

i have only one question,,,did deokman really falls in love with Bidam or she just want to marry bidam because of some reason....,,,tnkz a lot


shinita 6 years ago

can i ask you febrie?..who is the real love of qsd..yushin or bidam...?

for me its bidam...just wanting to get your opinions coz i thought ur nice reasoner...is it ok?

thanks..


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Claudine, I'm not sure, but I believe, even if just in a very short period, Deokman really in love with Bidam.

Shinita, I'm a nice reasoner? really? hehe..thank you anyway, well, for QSD's real love wow..it's hard to say, in the history, QSD even married 4th times! In that political ups and downs, to find a real love is hard, even in the real history the Sang Dae Deung Bi Dam was never mentioned to had any special relationship with the Queen.

But I think in this drama, I still believe QSD's real love is not Bidam nor Yu Shin, but Shilla..sorry, but that's my opinion.


Luiza 6 years ago

Hi Febrie & u all! How are you? Miss me? haha

oooooh... i miss soooooooo muchhhhhhhh QSD!

huh... i have found out some bad news a few days ago that Kim Nam Gil was rushed to the emergency ward on April 30 while shooting for his drama, Bad Guy because of Hiatal Hernia.

After two days, instead of resting, Kim Nam Gil insisted on attending his friend's wedding, Jan Dong-Gun on May 2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Uj1d_f0Q4g

But now he is getting better... and he's condition has improved!

Thanks! Love u all!


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

I want to answer on who QSD really loves....From the start it was yushin, but the problem with the two of them, they are both focus with their goals, that they forgot about their personal whims especially when they are faced with serious problems, both can't just place personal feeling in the first priority... for example... before and after the death of Princess Cheomyung, Yushin was the one determined to leave with deokman away from Silla, but Deokman changed her mind after her sister's death, and decided to become a ruler... at Episode 37, when Yushin can't give up his gaya people, it was deokman who was sentimental...after Sohwa's death, and deokman decided to go to the palace to face mishil, Yushin was the one sentimental telling her that No man would allow his loved ones to face her demise,(well something like that) and deokman was the one determined that she said, someone who lets sentiments get in the way of their goals, can never be a lover or subject of her... in other words in most of the episode it was Yushin. But having Bidam around was always a relief for Deokman.... I believe she fell in love with Bidam in the end but the sad part is, it was very short and painful..... Yushin was right in saying that only Bidam can give her solace, because from the start he was the one who was there when she was broken hearted when Yushin got married....

By the way I think East of Eden will be the next koreanovela I am curious...


cris 6 years ago

shinita 6 years ago

y shilla? ...qsd supposed to marry bidam but didnt make it coz of the misunderstanding between them or should i say coz of bidam..

thanks for reply


cris 6 years ago

What a subtle tasteful story! love it love it!!;D


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Hi Luiza, yes! I miss u so much hahaha..

Yes I heard about the news too, in fact his doctor suggested an operation but KNG declined due to the shooting of Bad Guy, I think he'll take the operation after they wrap all the shoots. Well, this is professional, but he risks in his own health. Hope he'll get well soon.

So Maria, who between the two men? Bi Dam, right?! haha..I don't believe this, we still discussing about QSD and the guys haha. Great to see you :)

Cris, hi! nice to have you here...:)

I like all the characters, even I can understand the evil Yeom Jeong a bit, well, he's a trader after all, he just loves gain so much and he had spent much money to make the maps of three Hans, so he did not want to loose haha..

Shinita, yes, I believe QSD was in love with Bi Dam, but in a very short period. QSD even confused with her own feeling, was she going to marry Bi Dam because she loves him or because his faction and power behind him? but she confessed to Yu shin that she really want to live peacefully with Bi Dam and she sincere about that, still it's hard for me to understand QSD's mind, I still doubt if she's not ill, did she really want to live with Bi Dam?

That's why I think her real love is Shilla. Thank you for visiting and discussing about this series, it's so fun :)


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

febrie hahaha yes, you made me think too, the way QSD thinks... I was thinking too, in the story, they abolished the Gaya including the lists of Gaya people, and wolya pledged their loyalty to Chunchu, which I think removed the conflict in marrying Yushin? and how come Yushin is saying that only Bidam can give her solace? why can't he? is it because he is married already? or just to lessen his disheartenment.... hahaha febri I cant get enough of this, in fact I wanted to write Deokman's love story to further analyze it.... Yushin is keeping my mind upside down too.

I just notice in the end, they did not show her funeral... I think the DVD that I am watching is incomplete...I think I saw in a preview Yushin rang wearing this white and black clothes to offer prayers for the one that died, but I did not see it...is it Deokman;'s funeral? well wish I can buy the orig one with correct translation, but it looks very very expensive


shinita 6 years ago

so u mean febrie bidam was really the true love of deokman?

=)


shinita 6 years ago

=)


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Maria, wow..Deokman's love story? it must be interesting, and yes, I did not see the funeral too, when YuShin wearing the white and black outfit, I can't find it on Viikii too.

Shinita, well of course it's easier to choose between the two haha..but I'm not sure who, sorry, I can't understand QSD's mind, I hope it's Bi Dam, it's easier, but why then after all, when she was in her last breath, she'd like to run away with Yu Shin? I think the Queen really love both men, with different kind of love but the Queen's love for Bi Dam is not bigger than her love for Yu shin, ahh..am I make it more complicated? haha..

So my answer is, I hope it's Bi Dam.


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Yes Febrie looks like at the end of the story it was Bidam, but I guess it was the story's mystery....Yushin maybe her greatest love but inspite of abolished gaya movement and listings and their loyalty transferred to Chunchu, the conflict in marrying him was lessen but still she chose Bidam, maybe in a woman's point of view, Bidam has only QSD to care about... Yushin is already married, and though multiple marriage were allowed in their culture, she still can't have Yushin's full devotion coz he has other family to care about... it could have been a happy ending with Bidam, if the queen is not dying and if Bidam was not swayed by his followers....in fairness with Yushin, I believe his greatest love is still the queen... oh looks like I made it complicated too... hahahha


ramafelix 6 years ago

i love queen seon deok


shinita 6 years ago

yes i think its bidam..for the 3rd time =)

the last words from qsd..the eloping with yushin..i think dat was not for yushin..it was for her...qsd's grief..once and for all the writer wants to end with the queen itself coz she was the lead star here..am i right?


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Maria, hi, happy great Sunday! and we still with the Queen haha..no you're not made it complicated, just more deeper with it. Oh this drama is so good.

Ramafelix, yes, me too.

Shinita, I think you're right about the Queen last words, she'd like to run away because the path is really hard.

Btw, do you like Mr. Kim Nam Gil (Bidam)? I think next week, about May 26/27, his new drama, Bad Guy, will be air soon.

Thank you for keep coming guys, you're all rock!!

Thank you guys for visiting!


Snejana 6 years ago

hi Febrie!

I think it was a only love story Deokman&Yushin.

I liked the drama series QSD. I liked Deokman in desert, Deokman nangdo, Deokman to war, Deokman is a smart, wise, brave, intelligent woman.

My favorite scene is Yushin "this person is… the key to everything that I intend on doing. The one I’ve chosen!" I love Yushin rang!

I was disappointed to episode 51, the writers have turned Deokman in Queen Seondeok slow, hesitant, without shine. It was ... an excellent drama series in general ... I deeply appreciate UTW's acting as Yushin . I like Uhm Tae-woong, is a very good actor. Please can you tell me more about him. Thanks.

snejana 6 years ago

I think in our lives, we love truly only once and Deokman once spoke about her feelings in episode 37 (I think, the episode with Yushin marriage). In rest, she was only the queen…

Thanks for the reply!


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Snejana I would like to believe that too....and remember that episode when they were trying to escape from the Palace... when Yushin rang decided to be left behind, did you remember the Princess' reaction, she was hysterical right?a few episode after that, it was Yushin slightly showing his affection but that time Deokman said, someone who let sentiments, get in the way of their paths can never be a lover or subject of her.... I believe they are each other's greatest love but they just cant express it at the same time... but near the end, in spite of abolishing gaya and taking it away from Yushin, taking away all the conflict of marrying him and yet in the end she chose Bidam? why because she knows only Bidam can give her all the love, the if focus only to her... Yushin has many concerns already


snejana 6 years ago

Hi Maria!

Sorry, my English is not too good ...

To episode 50, she love only Yushin, this definitely.

After episode 50, she was the only queen. On Yushin she managed to save him, Yushin's fair and honest. On Bidam, failed to save him. Bidam had his own trauma. If she really loved, abdicate from beginning (ep.51) and go to Bidam. She and Chun Chu had equal rights (have passed 15 years and in all that time he stuck somewhere to 14 years, a child!!!... and love story is a bit forced). But she wanted to be the queen, was her dream, I believe so... and I wanted to see a happy ending... so many people died...I was disappointed with the final.

vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

helu everyone!

as i was reading your comments, it became apparent to me that we are all been mesmerized by this wonderful historical drama and we all seemed cant get too much of this, we loved to talk about the details, tackle all the nuances and sometimes discuss interpretations.

im from phil too,and though i have the dvd(bad translations and all) i still want to watch the tagalog version, to see if i did understand well the drama, nothings beats watching it in your own vernacular language. i havent watched other korean historical dramas yet bec. im afraid that il compare it to QSD and il be disappointed bec. its not as good as QSD.

yeah, i remember that scene when they tried to escaped the palace during the coup, i saw how the princess really loved Yushin and how Yushin would try to protect her even at the cost of his own life, it was also one of the many scenes that i loved in the drama. i also loved the wedding, when Yushin got married and to ease her pain, she went and visited his land to see how the people of Gaya settling there and how they took care of the land that they were given at cost of his own happiness..I really loved Yushin's faithfulness to his people and to to his faithfulness to Deokman even though he knew that in the end she found someone else to loved, it was really a great love..

QSD showed much of the story evolving around Yushin& Deokman's lovestory, sowe Febrie hehehe..

loved reading all your posted comments, keep it flowing!!

Vhenn I agree with you the DVD here in the Philippines has bad translation is some episode, that is why I still why QSD in our languages because it was only through them that I can understand what the characters said.

Obviously we love QSD... There is so much love, friendship and loyalty in the story..

and yes we all hate the ending especially when you look back at the part when the main characters were helping in other to survive mishil...

Hi Maria, vhenn, I think you may watch online in mysoju or asianrice.net for great eng subtitle, or try the with2s.com for video subbing, I think their translation are great enough.

stephanie, hi thank's for visiting!

kaye, yes, we missed u too :) I'm not sure how to get the OST, if online you may check the hancinema, but try the music stores in your local area, first. I think they're already have it. East of Eden? Ok, I think I;m going to build a hub about it :)

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

looks like the actor who played deokman's father or the king is in East of Eden too...

Febri I haven't tried checking but I'll try to visit music stores here in the Phil. I love Windflower and Lee yo won's Bidam song, but then I like all the background music that they played in QSD


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Febri one more question please, I know we've been discussing this for a month now, but I am just curious..in the story of QSD, I did not see much effect of Yushin's marriage to mishil's granddaughter, because we are all aware he remained to be at the side of the princess and even was even tortured for loyally following her during mishil's martial law...so what changes did it make to yushin? and what mishil clan's gained? there was a part also when the king announced the deliberation of Deokman's nuptial, Mishil's son and husband visited Yushin and wife and they were glad to know that she was pregnant? I dont think they are happy because of the baby, but they found it an assurance that Yushin will never be a problem now that search for deokman's better half was being deliberated... Febri hope you have the answer hahahaha.. thanks in advance

Maria, you're right the actor played King Jinpyeong is the same with the bad guy in East of Eden.

And about Yeong Mo, I think she just a victim of political issue here, as a daughter from Mi shil's clan, she must be prepared to used as a mean to get some gains. I feel sorry of her but it seems like Yeong Mo really fall with Yushin, did you remember how she beg her grandfather Sang DaeDeung Se Jong, not to torture Yushin? I think she did not fake it.

Even though this marriage did not bring any gain to Mi shil faction in this drama, I think it's just Yushin's ploy to control Mi Shil faction, but in the real history, General Kim Yu shin is really faithful towards his wife. His wife died and he re-married with Chun Chu sister (yes, it's complicated )

Not just Yeong Mo, what do you think about Bo Ryang? Kim Chun Chu's Queen will be Kim Mun Hee, and what do you think will happen to Bo Ryang? Just poor girl.

Febrie thanks yes Yeong Mo fall in love with Yushin but who can't fall in love with Yushin at those times? If I am included in the drama I maybe one of the ladies who secretly fall for him hahahahha. so sex is always included in the package?and it's normal then to have a child out of marriage where the love is not a mutual feeling.?but then Yushin is still a man right? with all those disappointments and suppressions just by loving Princess Deokman, of course he may gave in to his needs anytime..observing his character in a movie as a man he is very touchy right? always hugging deokman when opportunity calls for it.. oopps I am analyzing it deeper again... so Chun chu has a sister?thought he was an only child. looks like there was an exchanges of sisters huh? Kim Mun Hee is Yushin's sister right? yes the poor boryang....

Vhenn hahaha well I just like to talk about QSD and innermost of it because I know many would love to hear more from it... I also enjoy your comments guys that's why I can't help but response... about the songs yes I like it too I love the windflower most of all, in fact I am trying to sing it though the words are unfamiliar. there is a translation in the lyrics, but you know the melody and the reminder of some qsd scene are enough for us to feel the songs. nice talking to you guys always, hope this will extend beyond QSD...

East of Eden, I think one of the lead star was the one in endless love so i think those who like him there will look forward to this...

hi there just want to share, believe it or not though I have finished watching QSD at DVD and still watch it several times, there are part of it that I dont understand that is why I am watching QSD in Filipino version strictly. It was only this week that I realized why the commoners rallied and captured the governor, they rallied because inspite of little harvest, hajong and serong collected the same tax amount from them... this is followed by the episode where the Princess punished the 3 commoner by killing them herself. aigoo...that episode will be shown on on monday....these are the parts with bad translation so guys this is not over yet... hahaha aigoo

great review


jel 6 years ago

Hello, wow Queen Seondeok really rocks!!! Discussions are everywhere and is not ending...whew! Good to visit this hot hub page again, I was here several weeks ago. I too still can't get over with this phenomenal drama. Often my free time was spent on surfing around the web to read more about the drama & about my favorite character Deokman (Lee Yo Won) or just re-watching the drama. I am already crazy...I wonder when I can get over it. I tried watching new historical dramas like Jejoongwon & Dong-yi but it didn't work...Queen Seondeok still seized me...gosh!!!

Anyway, just want to let everyone know that I am also for DEOKMAN-YUSHIN love team...hehehe!


hanski 6 years ago

hello everyone! febrie, im back...

im surprised that after a few weeks a lot of comments have piled up in your hub since i last visited. great! hahaha! i think we're still in the run up to ep 40 here in our philippine tv.

anyway, just want to share that some of my friends have also started watching (the others have finished) the dvd copy. and all i hear were rave reviews on qsd. it just felt funny that some were trying to make a competition out of the yushin-deokman and bidam-deokman love affair. haha as if they are really so affected by the drama. i think i read somewhere (i just forgot the link) that KNG (or was it some other cast of qsd?) told fans that historical drama is different from real history. and i think that was what made this drama series interesting, the fact that the writers tried to incorporate what happened in real history into it. but of course, some facts were altered to highlight the conflict between yushin and bidam.

would you believe i watched the entire episode again for the second time and i believe deokman had at least three loves in the series. the first was ajeoshii, whom she had a crush on when she was still a teenager living with sohwa at the taklamakan dessert. but young as she is it was just sort of a fleeting inspiration. it was aejoshi who urged her to find munno, to find her destiny in gyerim.

and of course, throughout her nangdo days, she had yushin. until his marriage, deokman still harbored feelings for him...after that, maturing into a queen, she fell for bidam...

great casting, really. i also started appreciating the roles of lord seolwon, santak, jukbang and archeon rang. =)


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Wow hi..it's about 2 days I spent my weekends and I still found nice and hot comments haha yeah..QSD is really amazing..Hail the Queen!!

@Maria, hi it's ep 39 and 40 right? I think Princess Deokman wanted to treat her people different from what Mishil and Sejong used to treat them. Deokman wanted her people to be independent and not depend on noble class. Deokman wanted the commoners to have their own land and not always be the subject of noble class, so she gave them the bestow land and asked them to cultivate in that land, after several times, the land will be theirs and they will not become tenant anymore.

But some villagers were not appreciate the Princess kindness and they ran away with the grain and the farming tools bestow by the Princess. And it make her angry, she believe in them, but they disappointed her.

She wanted to help them escape from the strong hold tyranny of the nobility & makes them not to survive on handouts but being self sufficient in the bestow land to gain that independence then pay their interest without any other collateral & to free them being enslave. Deok man question that do they wish to be enslave by being force tenant on nobility land. Deok man asked whether they want to continue to live under enslavement that is subjected to all their descendent to that fateful destiny. Deok man asked don’t they realise that she wanted to give them land for them to cultivate to yield a harvest & their children able to inherit those land.

And because of that, she did not have any other choice but to give them lessons. Deokman slashed them by her own hand. Even Bi Dam surprised with her action ha ha

Imagomundi, hi welcome to Hubpages!! congratulations for your wife haha..these series are awesome.

Jel, you're right, it's hard to say goodbye to QSD even if now I watch Dong yi too, and even Lee Min ho-Personal Taste still can not replace QSD. I watch Bad Guy too in order to see a glimpse of Bi dam again, and watch Eom Tae Woong's old movie to see Yu Shin haha

Hanski!! hi! I miss u !!

Of course I believe you do that! Because ..I did too!! i watch QSD again and again online, pick my favorite eps up. And I surprised, that I think Mi shil's parts were my favorite sigh...

I love that Italian Ahjusshi too :)

Thank you for your comments my friends, this is so exciting! Happy Monday!!

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

wow nice to see lots of comments aside from mine hahahaha... I am watching QSD in filipino closely and I don't watch tv anymore coz it's always QSD.... somebody mentioned CASTAN, I was wondering about that too, he was convincing deokman to stay with him, I wonder, is it for adoption or is it actually marriage? coz you see at those times, you can get marriage as early or as young as you are. remember chum yeong I think she got married at 14 or less?


vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

greetings to all!!

maria, it seemed that we do have one thing in common and that is our love of QSD. And im really open for that offer of friendship(in fact im all for it coz i dont have anything to lose but something to gain out of this so i said go for it!!)hehehe.

jel, hurray for that loveteam, im always happy if others could appreciate Deokman&Yushin's lovestory!!

hanski, its not that we are affected, it only proved that we really love and supported their loveteam even its only for the drama, it like choosing your team on a basketball season, you will support and loved that team no matter what..

febrie, we only have you to thank for, for having this hub and for letting us express our opinions here. you deserve a double thumbs-up!!

and for everybody, i really liked reading your posted comments and sometimes those that little details that i sometimes took for granted do infact have a significant meanings..

@Maria, I remember the name, it's Cartan, Cartan Ahjussi. well, deokman is really open minded in her very early age.

Thank you my friends for all your love to this drama and hub :) Have a great day!

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

for Deokman Yushin fans, have you noticed this, when the King finally acknowledged deokman,this was after the eclipse, you saw facial expression of Yushin? he didn't look happy right? and they have gazes that showed love? I mean nice acting....hahahaha.

Febrie so when Cartan offered her, it was not actually adoption? it was marriage?

Vhenn let's enjoy QSD Philippine version till the end... it's only now that I understand it completely, now her killing of the commoner had more impact... and of course Febrie thanks for the your explanation..


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Hi Maria, I think Cartan offered married, what else? Did you remember how deokman feel when Jukbang gave her a wooden sculpture of a man look exactly like Cartan? or maybe it remind her of her freedom, I don't know haha..but Cartan is gorgeous too and smart.

Nice to see you here :)


hanski 6 years ago

@vhen, febrie

Yeah I understand… got me so hooked too! Hehehe. Any way I supposed it should have been titled as “the life and loves of QSD” hahaha! Yup that Italian guy was good looking too. =)

Anyway, I just figured out that when QSD asked Yushin in that last episode before she died if they can escape once again, she was speaking as a woman unfulfilled. Not really that she was turning to Yushin again for any romantic inclination, it’s just that her longing to be a real woman was never fulfilled. She may have been a successful ruler but was never successful in relationships. That sucks, right? Reminds me of what Sohwa said when she handed her Jukbang’s gift of a wooden sculpture of Cartan: “Heroes end up lonely…” (just my perspective, please)

Sigh… =/


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Some said that QSD fell in love with Yushin in the latter part, but for me from since their first war together she is already infatuated with Yushin... and same with Yushin coz it was not mentioned in the drama when he realized that Deokman was a woman... Deokman said, parting with yushin is regrettable; she didnt want Yushin to be included in her plan because when she looked at him her heartbeat reached the surface, and she remembers her desire to run away with him. too many to mention..

about the italian guy, yes she likes him too much but I never thought it could mean romantic or it was a different culture maybe...

Hello everyone! I am also a fan of QSD and the "Yushin-Deokman" love team! :D This is a great site. I enjoyed reading and learned a lot. Thanks! I've been searching for Korea's history since this QSD phenomenon and because of that I wanted to visit Gyeongju, Korea and pay a visit as well to the Queen's tomb and Yushin's tomb(and that's if I can gather enough resources to handle the tour - money I mean). By the way, I'm from the Philippines.

@Maria: I have no idea if the QSD OST will be available in our music stores. I got mine from sites such as 4shared.com, filestube.com and mediafire.com Is the original DVD copy already available here?

I've started to watch again the series. I just realized that all of QSD's projects particularly the one that concerns land cultivation were influences from the books she read when she was living at Taklamakan Desert. ^_^

The Great Queen Seon Deok IS THE BEST (L)

LOVE IT


hanski 6 years ago

hi febrie! im back. its independence day in the philippines and we just proclaimed our 15th president. qsd, as usual,is still airing on phil tv and i think we are now on the episode that mishil has decided to aspire for the throne herself. i still can't get over with the QSD fever perhaps because my job entails me to somehow link philippine politics to its storyline.

i am really amazed at mishil's character. if she's not a vicious, ruthless politician i would have vouched for her leadership because she was the one who had enough guts to go against political dynasty. i would imagine that in an era where the political trend tends to favor those in the royal bloodline (even if the king is weak and has no political clout) it would be frustrating for any true blooded-politician to aspire to be a ruler. its an era where dynasties such as the Tang dynasty, qing dynasty flourished. mishil's frustration, for me is understandable, if not daunting because if not for her shilla would have crumbled to pieces as baekje and goguryeo are formidable empires. mishil provided a backbone for shilla's military.

i got to see the link you posted about the bidam war. contrary to the insinuation in the drama that the bidam's uprising would not be known in history, in truth this one actually gained international impetus. if i am not mistaken, takeda yukio's assessment of the bidam war was that it was a "just war" between two warring factions in korean history. one which is bidam's faction which was "dependent on the Tang dynasty" demanded QSD's dethronement in order to avoid intervention by tang. the tang dynasty,i understand do not favor queen rulers. the other faction, that of yushin, was independent of Tang, defended the queen because they adhere strictly "to the royal authority of seonggol." however, i want to expand my knowledge on this one, because as far as i know, it is also a good feminism and gender studies in asian history--much like queen elizabeth's in the west. im doing a little research, got me intrigued that's why

anyway, on a lighter note, i learned that kim nam gil actually based his performance as bidam on two japanese mangga: vagabond and slam dunk. cool! he doesn't just do acting, he makes research. i also got to stumble on one interview on him that he also researched about the history of the bidam war when the directors cast him for the character. great! that's why i love this actor. resourceful and brilliant! =D

i just can't believe why its indicated in wikipedia that bidam was qsd's lover. and you're right qsd had four husbands, one ofthem is archeon rang with whom she had a love child. i thought the writers just made a twist to the story but when i got to check wikipedia, bidam went down into history as qsd's lover. however, there's no citations so i guess they need to update on this...don't you think so?


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Hanski, how admirable that is so deep....I've never been this deep with history not after QSD and not after meeting resourceful people like you and febrie...


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

Hi SP, Yes QSD is still the best so far, but I wait for So Ji Sub's Road No.1. I think that's a great drama too.

Hanski, wow..what a deep thoughts of Bi Dam's war. I still think that Bi Dam is just the highest official in QSD era and there is no romance whatsoever between them. We're really need a Korean historian here haha..please...somebody who really know about Lord Bi Dam of Shilla, speak up. It got me intrigued too.

And Mi Shil, yes I agree with you, Mi shil was the one who provided backbone in Shilla's military. Even until now, the hwarang-do is still exist.

Yes, I read the same thing about how Kim Nam Gil portrayed Bi Dam, and he said, that between the scenes, he sneaked around and read his Vagabond or Musashi comics.

Thank you Hanski for visiting!

Last night aired the episode when Chunchu finally decided to join his Aunt,Princess Deokman, of course you remember that part when he cried and said did you shed as many tears as I have? and then the Windflower song enters, and it ended with deokman embracing his nephew... the sad thing about the Philippine version is they changed the background music into balbambam,well for me that was the most touching scene and I admire Chunchu for great acting..and Windflower added to the drama...


hanski 6 years ago

hi febrie, maria!

thank you, but no its not that deep. but i just have a penchant for research work. im a writer/reporter that's why. qsd (and i also watched made me more curious of history not just of korea but also of other asian countries.

btw, febrie i just finished ep 1 of KNG's Bad Guy. Gosh! All i can say is KNG really rocks! KNG can go sexy even without having to bare flesh. hehehe! he can portray a character with depth. something i seldom see even in american dramas or mexican dramas.

i also watched lee yo won's performance in Bad Love (its cruel love in phil tv) and she was really superb! she's just a great actress. when it comes to acting, she's got good timing. =) (i've been trying to finish jumong too.)

im still trying to search more about the bidam war. truth is, i've seen links but its written from the perspective of japanese historians. got me curious why it was like that. you see, when history is written by a distant observer, it tends to be biased or let's just say, written with a different perspective. its like indonesian history being written by the british or philippine history being written by spanish historians or american historians. so febrie, that's why i agree with you, we need a korean historian in your blog to explain some of the facets of qsd's history. =)

Hello! I am hooked with QSD since I watched it on youtube last Sunday. I am up to Episode 27 now. I wanna get the whole episode of QSD. Would that be possible?

By the way, what would be the role of Lord Chunchu(dunno if it's right)the son of Princess Cheonmyeong in Deokman's life?

nhelle 6 years ago

hi.. im done watching QSD.. yeah ur ryt,,, last part was the hardest thing to watch... ur being touch with every single part of the story.. u can feel it as if ur really part of the drama... i even watched the last episode thrice... but im quite unsatisfied for the fact that it was too cruel for all of them... esp for deokman and bidam.... everything ended just lyk dat... they were not given the chance to express more about their feelings and instead they ended with too much pain... :(

but overall, QSD was a big success... im hoping for more historical korean drama to come...

thank u.. :)

FEbrie I am not just thrilled I think I am going crazy...hahaha thinking of taking a leave from work, talk to my highschool friend who have connections with the GMA7 the station the handles QSD....praying to God to give me a chance to have photos with Lee Yo Won...


vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

helu once again!

by now you all knew that QSD nearing its end here in the Phil. It just irked me that they are cutting some parts of drama and it lost some of interest to those who werent able to see the dvd copy.

how i wish that they didnt cut some scenes out..


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

hi vhenn so you observed it too, I guess the cuts are drastic... it was so obvious last night... from Seukpum's death then jumped to Chilsuk... then from Deokman being called because the king was not getting any better.... it was done all so fast....I will need to ask my auntie who never watched it at dvd, if she noticed the cuts... I mean that part with Chilsuk should not be like what we saw last night... looks like GMA 7 didn't realized that QSD will be very long, they are already promoting East of Eden for August...

Hi I can't imagine how are they going to make it shorter... so disappointing....I guess because of deadline they will need to sacrifice some meat of the program...


vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

hi maria!

yeah, it was really disappointing, ive been wanting to watch the end very badly, i want it translated in our langauge. I was really sad for Mishil & Lord Seolwon as well as for Chilsuk & Seukpum for their tragic end..

hey, maria, i want to visit your hub, did you also feature QSD there?

Hi everyone!

It's been a long while since my last visit in this page. I still read the posts here. WOW! That's amazing, LYW in the Philippines this August! WOW! WOW! WOW! Can you update us with that wonderful news here, Maria, if Febrie wouldn't mind? :D

It's so sad that I'm missing a lot of part in QSD (Philippine version) because of work. Huhuhuhu! T_T Hope it's available in youtube. *crosses fingers*

I would just like to share that I love listening to the QSD soundtrack. It's my stress reliever and it never fails! Whenever I can't think straight at work, I play the soundtracks in my laptop while working (with earphones ofcourse). I love Baramggoc (Wind Flower), Daleul Gariun Hae, Balbambalbam and all the instrumentals in it. Also Uhm Tae Woong's Ojik Hansaram and Kim Nam Gil's Can't I Love You. For some strange reasons, Wind Flower has some magic on me, it always thrills me and makes me smile. That's why I always play it on my playlist whenever I feel sad. :D

hanski 6 years ago

hi febrie! and hi to all!

just got back from japan. so i missed qsd Philippines for two weeks. so sad.. wanted to see the Phil version. however, just reading vhenn, and marie's comments right now made me even sadder.

@vhen, marie: is it really true GMA7 made some drastic cuts on the drama series? huh, they should have anticipated the drama would be long. east of eden is good but not as excellent as qsd.

@febrie: japan is great. i was also surprised to learn they too were hit by the korean wave. but during my stay there made me interested to watch more japanese, korean, taiwan drama. really, their dramas and movies have more depth and more interesting. it just makes me sad that our (phil) movie, showbiz industry could not produce that kind of series when in fact phil history and filipino culture is also rich and deep.

im surprised that after two weeks, your hub is getting longer... hahaha! =D

@ marie: lee yo won is really coming to phils in august?


hanski 6 years ago

@ febrie: it's also sad to hear that Kim Nam Gil is now being called to do military duty. heard that no more extensions are allowed. and the director of bad guy is now mulling Rain as his replacement. (this is just what i heard).

i hope to see KNG in future lead roles in saeguk dramas. im anticipating more good roles for him after his two year military service.

we'll miss him though! i already miss seju Go hyung jun (mishil). bidam and mishil really rocks!


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Hanski, Vhenn, Febrie and Danne, as of this moment, Lee Yo Won Visit is not confirm yet, but I ask a friend who can ask if this is possible, once I confirm it's true I will definitely announce it here..

Hanski, though Bad guy is not yet here in the philippines, I felt sad that Kim Nam Gil will really need to leave bad guy.... the military service is not of perfect timing, I was also dreaming of his possible team with Lee Yo won next year coz I heard, they are only allowed to team up together two years after their last team up...


hanski 6 years ago

@marie: thanks! that would be great! i wouldn't pass off the opportunity then, if she does visit the philippines. i really wish kng and lyw will team up in the future. they look great as a couple. though i wish this time it would be a good ending.

@rique mae, I like him too :)

@hanski, hi! welcome back! wow..Japan is a fantastic place, you're so lucky :) Well, yes, most of Japanese love Korean dramas, like the latest Kim Nam Gil's Bad Guy has many Japanese scenes.

Kim Nam Gil will be reporting for army duty tomorrow at July 15, 2010 and we may see him again next 2 years.

They replaced Kim Nam Gil with Rain? really? that's new for me, I think Kim Nam Gil's role in Bad Guy can not be replaced by anybody. Gun Wook's character has many layers and complicated. If Rain as Gun Wook I don't think he will be good enough, but if Rain as another character, well I can take with it.

Hanski, yes this hub is not just a hub hahaha..it's a forum I think :) specially for QSD and Korean drama lovers, really nice to talk to you :)


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

@Maria, I really wait for your report about LYW :) I wonder who will accompany her.

Even if the military service is not a good timing for Kim Nam Gil, but according to his age, he should be enlisted for military service this year. So, there is no more extension for him. He already asked for extension on March.

There is no such thing in my country Maria, how about Philippines? I think countries in South East Asia are different from Korean.

@Evelyn Jacob, QSD is still the best drama so far, I don't know if Dong Yi could replace QSD place. Thank you for commenting.

Dannee 6 years ago

Greetings, dear online friends! =)

@Maria: Thanks for the update, Maria! Well, I just downloaded the QSD OST online. I searched it on google and some people uploaded it on sites such as filestube.com and mediafire.com, that's where I got my copy of the OST. Sorry for the illegal download! T_T

@Hanski: Hi! How's Japan? Aside from Korea, Japan is also part of the country list that I would like to visit in Asia someday. =D

@Vhen: I just looked it up at google and some generous people uploaded it on their blogsites and other file sharing sites. It's an illegal download though >_< sorry for patronizing it. Yeah, I agree with you, a lot of us definitely will miss QSD. That's why I always visit this page when I have the time to go online. Febrie's hub sure is a way to connect people who loves everything about QSD.

@Febrie: You're right, this has become a forum for all QSD lovers! =D It's also a great way to meet people from other countries! What I like most in this hub/forum is that people following your hub show respect to its visitors and their comments! =D

Dannee thanks for visiting my hub now you know my true love Peso


hanski 6 years ago

@danee: hi! japan's great! got to meet a lot of people and those who are also k-drama addicts. nice spots and great scenery. you should go visit japan. im also dying to visit s. korea. hey, i would also like to know where i can download qsd soundtracks, i like the windflower song too. =)

@febrie: i really just got hold of the info from friends in japan. actually, there have been speculations as to who really should replace KNG, and Rain is being mulled to be it. like there's going to be an accident, and a facial surgery would commence...something like that. but really i have no concrete idea.

it was also in tokyo where i learned that park yong ha, one of the lead characters in the k-drama "winter sonata" committed suicide. he's got a strong following in Japan. winter sonata is one of the first batches of k-drama that hit phil tv. sequel to "endless love". i love bae yong joon, he's also handsome, great guy, and i also like his role in "the legend."

about rain: i watched "ninja assassin." nice movie. nice martial arts. im beginning to like martial arts movies. =)


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Hanski me too I'm beginning to appreciate action movies

anyway so sad about that suicide thing, but how come it frequently happened to Korean stars, I remember the girl from the attic cat soap opera who committed suicide too? I feel so sad about them....but of course they are also human affected by life's challenges... hope this wont happen to my korean favorites.and of course to other stars too..


febriedethan profile image

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

@Hanski, yes, Park Yong Ha's suicide shocked me too. I like Park Yong Ha, as Sang Hyuk in Wonter Sonata he seemed very lovable and caring person. He had many problems, from business, to depression, and his Dad condition. He once admitted that he had insomnia for 14 years! you believe that, sigh..poor Park Yong Ha.

@Maria, many Korean actors committed suicide, before Park Yong Ha, there were Jung Da Bin (Attic Cat),Lee Eun Ju (Taegukgi),Ahn jae Hwan, Choi Jin Sil, Jang Ja Yun (Sunny in BBF), Jang Chae Won, Choi Jin Sil's brother Choi Jin Young sigh..

That's really a sad fact in Korean entertainment industry, don't know the reason, but most of them suffered depression. I hope there will be many support groups in Korean entertainment industry.

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

FEbrie about your question on Military training, it does not exist in Philippines too.. I think it's because South Korea is still in War, I know in MIddle east area,males are required to that too...maybe countries who are still in war required their males to do so..

Im an avid fan

Thank you.. this is a professional page!! wheow


hanski 6 years ago

@febrie: they have finally cut short bad guy up to ep 17. they did not replace KNG. glad to hear it. bec you're right no one can replace him on that role.

about the suicide in s. korea, japanese friends told me that it was due in part by the financial burden of young adults in caring for their elderly. both japan and s. korea are actually experiencing decline in birth rates and marriage rates! due to the negative economic condition. and that was said to have been a lot of pressure to the younger generation. i was skeptical about it when they told me that. bec in the phils, most families are in the same situation but as far as i know there are no complaints and suicide happens very very rarely. (or maybe not just reported)

@ marie: yes your right about the military training. s. korea needs it bec they are still technically at war with pyongyang. the korean war did not ended on a truce but just a ceasefire. so when the cheonan explosion happened it just aggravated the situation. even japan is frowning against n. korea and they are really serious on helping s. korea. now, there are issues where some rich s. koreans and celebrities are bribing the military to spare them from their military duty or shorten their duty. and their community do not take this lightly. anyone who rejects military training risks the ire of the entire community. so judging from KNG's decision, he did not ask to be given special treatment that is why his training would commence for 2 years. rain i think was only given 1 year.

@Stephany Jane, thank you for stopping by.

@Evelyn Jacob, I like Lee Yo Won too, I'm also waiting update from Maria :)

@Maria, really? Oh I hope she will be ok now and thank you for the update.

@Hanski, yes, you're right, and now I'm watching ep 9. Kim Nam Gil is still the strength of Bad Guy.

Do you know? before Kim Nam Gil went to the military camp, he designed his own necklace called Sweet Love with Korean Jewelry designer Ms. Kim Jeong Ju. He wore the necklace in Bad Guy drama, and I think the necklace is quite cool. Suitable for man and woman. (ring shape with a pisces sign and hangul name inside, look cool.)

I heard about the critics over Korean military too, especially about the bribe, so, there is no more special treatment I believe.

Thank you for commenting my friends, have a wonderful weekend :)

Hanski and Febrie, so hardship is really all over the world.....but maybe some pinoys are so adaptive to it... and that's how I observe life, even if you are rich if you are not careful you will loss everything... but I think KOrea was known for suicide incidence because those who committed it were popular people.... it did happen in the Philippine movie industry but not as frequent as what happened to Korea....

Anyways I saw one photo of kim nam gil in his military haircut... he is good looking really

QSD is nearing end....

I' m so happy to discover this hubpage!! I thought I'm the only person who feels this way after watching QSD. Like you Febrie and the others, I cant seem to get over this drama series... it's the first time i got sooooo affected with a series on TV. I wonder what sort of magic potion or spell they have injected in the drama to make all of us feeling this way. I always sleeps at 2Am for 2 months now just to do the viewing on youtube. I also follow it up on TV, not to mention that i've already finished an entire DVD weeks back. Quite addicting i must say...

Anyway thanks a lot for creating this hub. I am a Bidam-Deokman fan like you.

I love you Kim Nam Gil!!

hi everyone!

it cant be denied, QSD is only days away to its end. let's reminisce, what were your favorite scene in the drama, i would like to hear of it? Which part did you fell in love with the story?


Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Vhenn hahaha too many to mention but as a starter, I love everything about deokman and yushin during nangdo days.... I love the scene when Yushin was getting ready to leave for war with Seolwon, deokman was still looking at him while he was on his way to the battlefield and he looked back too... I mean as early as that, you can sense affection growing between the two... I also love it when yushin was looking for her at the mud, and Deokman actually saved his life by shooting an arrow to the the enemy, love that shot of deokman the camera from her one leg stepping on the corpse, going up to her face.. that's enough for now hahaha....

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

@Maria, I've seen the QSD concert in Youtube and yes, the singers are the OST singers.

@kylieYushin, yes, I know the feeling hahaha..

@heaven322, welcome to hubpages! Thank you for visiting and enjoying my hub! QSD is awesome!

@vhenn! you stimulated a new thread! Hahaha..Ok, now let's talk about it, so everybody let's start to write about : My favorite scene in Quenn Seon Deok is.....

My Fave scenes in QSD :

1. Like Maria, time when Yu Shin and DeokMan still as young nangdo, and in one battle, DeokMan saved Yu Shin live by shot an enemy behind him, wow Deokman definitely looked like the goddess of war.

2. When Deokman ate Alcheon's letter of order hahaha

3. All Bi Dam's scenes, even when he looked silly.

4. I think I like all the scenes :)

Thank you guys for commenting and visiting!

hanski 6 years ago

my fave scenes are..

1. when bidam was putting deokman to sleep

2. bidam and deokman professed their love for each other before mishil's altar

3. and last scene where lyw embraced her young self

in previous episodes i also love the scene where deokman saved yushin with her arrow. and of course, bidam's martial arts moves. astig!

i forgot, i cried at the episode when munno died. i like that too


hanski 6 years ago

i also like the bidam-mishil scene when especially after the botched alliance deal. mishil touching bidam's face. very moving.

i like almost all bidam-mishil scenes. i remember always looking forward to their confrontations =)

Maria Cecilia profile image

Maria Cecilia 6 years ago from Philippines

Well last night the episode is about Deokman announcing her conjugal ties with Bidam, it was in filipino version so the effect is more heartwrecking, well at least for Deokman-Yushin... I was deeply touched with yushin saying for his loyalty to his ruler he chose to turn his back the woman the he loves. and he said forgive me for my shortcomings and the Queen did not answer, making me wonder if she is acknowledging it or not.... Yes Bidam bring deokman to sleep is also very touching, looking at Bidam's face while watching the queen to sleep, really said he is madly in love..

Lay thou Princess together with Chunchu will try to escape away from the palace thru the help of Yushin and Bidam.... Gaya people will be the princess's support while she was out of the palace. Sohwa died because she volunteered to play as bait and pretended as the princess. Chilsuk was the one who killed sohwa.... the princess will return to palace for open questioning...


vhenn_marie8477 6 years ago

hi all!

thank you for obliging me and sharing your most memorable scenes. i also have my own favorite scenes. I fell in love with deokman when she cried her heart out at the desert, when she thought that she lost her mother. i loved the scene when they were going to war and though Yushin could not say goodbye to Deokman in so may words but he told her it by his meaningful gaze as he marched out of the camp. i loved the scenes during the warm the encounter with Deokman-yushin & alcheon where they forged their first friendship there. i loved the scene where Yushin was so frantically looking for deokman among the dead and was ultimately was saved by deokman. i loved the scene where deokman saw her mother/nanny for the second time. i loved the scenes when Yushin discovered the Deokman was in fact a woman, remember that? i could not figured if he was happy or sad that he found that she was really a woman dressed in a soldier uniform..when he accompanied her and asked her to go away with him never to return to Sorabeol..just loved that scenes..

actually my list will go on and my space will not be enough if il list all my favorite scene. thse will suffice for now.

but im so happy to know that we have almost the same fave scenes among the drama. and thank your for answering my question.

@ cecilia

yes the scene last night, was so sad for Yushin-Deokman fans added to the fact it was said in out language, it was the ending for their lovestory and beggining for Bidam and Deokman.

i so wished that there could be a sequel on this drama..

thank you for sharing guys, love you for loving QSD!!

Vhenn I love all Yushin-deokman scene, I love it when yushin said he hates the face that you are going to be a princess.. which made me realized that Yushin never intend to marry a princess but a simple woman..that's why he fell in love with deokman instead of princess cheumyeong....I guess if both remained single it wouldn't hurt if they remained single but with devotion with one another.. the thing is Yushin got married, and deokman maybe wanted to marry a man who will only think of her not of other family or silla.... that's why she chose Bidam....hayss...

Hey co-QSD addicts, are you aware about this petition for another QSD ending? I think it's a very nice move for that particular fan who started this petition. I'm sure most of us wanted another ending, a happy one. I myself cant get much sleep trying to picture out in my mind 'what if the drama ended this way' or what if the directors added an intimate scene like this'.I think I'm getting crazy already.Haha! Really, it would be a relief if I would see an ending where Bidam was not brutally killed, and he and doekman were allowed to talk.I dont know with you guys but my heart is really crying out for this..A HAPPY ENDING FOR QSD!!!

Here's the link:

Hi Guys...

Wow..I went away for 3 days and you guys are still visiting here hahaha..thank you thank you sooo much ^_^

@Hanski, I see, most of your fave scenes are Mi shil and Bi Dam's haha..me too. I also love those scenes, especially when they had a great time like in ep. 42? before Mishil arranged coup de'tat

@Maria, I think you love all QSD's scenes hahaha

Yes..please vote for Lee Yo Won and also Kim Nam Gil sigh miss him already ..

@Lay Thou, after Mishil's coup, Princess Deokman and her Hwarangs did guerrilla war, pushed Mishil to the corner and Mi shil decided to commit suicide, King Jinpyeong died, Princess Deokman became Queen Seon Deok, and there was competition between Yu Shin and Bi Dam in Shilla political power. The Queen and Bi Dam started to love each other and stirred commotion in Bi Dam's faction/Mi shil's faction. That led into Bi Dam's war. Bi Dam died. Three days later the Queen died. end of story.

@Vhenn, yes, most of mine are similar with yours :)

Thank you for visiting too :)

@jaja mendoza, yes, we are all love QSD !! Thank you for visiting!

@vicky, thank you for the link! Let's vote Go Hyun Jung-sshi!!

@Loisee, well honey, I think you should wait for about two years after he's finished his army duty :) I like Kim Nam Gil too, he's so talented.

@denden mangubat, welcome to Hubpages!! thank you for visiting.

@heaven322, a petition for QSD happy ending? I just heard that. But I think it won't change the history fact. Well at least I agree for giving Bi Dam time to talk to the Queen.

@Dalis and Lay thou, Mishil committed suicide, Lord Sejong died, Lord Seolwon also died, Bi Dam died.

Chilsuk died, Seok Bum-rang committed suicide. Lord Bo Jong fled away, Lord Mi Saeng and Lord Ha Jong were captured but according to the history they're executed too.

thanks febrie for visiting my hub... yes almost all the scenes are my favorite hahaha.. well mostly nangdo days with yushin..

in addition, I love it when yushing kind hit his face or forehead when he realized something he did it twice first when Deokman was mistakes as the assasin of yushin's father, and 2nd when Chunchu married boryang..

I like him also in his I chose you dialog with deokman... more to come

@Maria, I never realized that! Yushin hit his forehead twice? Wow, You're really thorough..haha

May be I will realize it, if that was Bi Dam :)

Can there also be a petition where Yushin and Deokman could finally share the love they had for each other and not just for the love of Silla? For me, Yushin deserves Deokman's love. =)

Had KNG played the role of Yushin, I bet more people would love to see Deokman and Yushin end up together. ^_^


heaven322 6 years ago

febrie, i agree with you that changing the ending of QSD a little will not in any way change recorded facts about Korean history.But at least it will create a remarkable change in the reactions of the avid followers of the drama.We will all be happier! Besides, we all know the story never really presented what actually happened during the reign of QSD, right? Much was added (and removed) in the story to add spice and thrill to it. Cheonmyeong & Doekman are twins in the story, in reality they were not. Bidam appeared as Mishil's son, in reality he was not. see? It will not be unfair i think if they would make it appear that bidam turned his back from his revolting group after finding out the truth about their treachery.He could face the queen after that. They could talk..Hayy, i'm imagining again...Well, what the petitioners are actually requesting is to have 2-endings.Keep the sad one (for those who can stand sad endings). And then come up with a happier one just for the satisfaction of the viewers.I remember it was done here once in the Philippines.To satisfy all the the viewers(who were divided into two just like QSD), the producers and director of one drama series came up with 2-endings.haha! imagine how powerful televiewers can get! well, it became possible here in our country. In Korea, I'm not quite sure if producers would be willing to walk the extra mile.

Febrie about yushin, yes watch those scenes I mentioned he was cute that way, I guess the funny side of yushin rang...

Dannee I have my own ending in mind which I never shared yet in my hub, it's like this, Princess Chumyeong will not die as what happened in the story, so Deokman and Yushin will really leave silla, and they will eventually start a family hahahahah of course it wont be easy, Chilsuk will still look for them but going back to the desert, Deokman will meet Castan ajeossi again and he will help Deokman and Yushin settle but not in the desert but in Rome, for Deokman knows Chilsuk knows the desert. They will return to desert after 5 years with their kids, while enjoying a family life, jukbang and alcheon will find them again only to tell them about some developments in Silla that the Royal family are requesting for their return. of course mishil is still there, I am still thinking how to make it possible, but the conflict will start once they return to Silla. on their way to Silla, they will encounter an old that will tell them (yushin and deokman) that once they return to where they originally came from, even against their will, they will be separated.... and Bidam is still not out of the picture...... hahaha

Heaven, in our country, tv producers and management listens to the demands of the viewers, or because it means better profit. haven't I asked this before? how come in Korea in spite of fans request on another Lee yo won and Kim nam Gil team up still it was not made possible?I was told they will need to wait for two years before they can team up again... but in our country, when the love team hits, definitely there will be a follow up soap opera or movie... Korea is different, they seem very confident in their talent's bankability.. but I do wish for a better ending. if Deokman Yushin in the end is not possible, I will agree with Deokman Bidam but please dont kill the queen....

very long comment, it's like making another hub hahahha

@Maria: *Big round of applause* That's an amazing twist in the story, Maria! I would like to see more of it. Seems like a fanfic in the making! *naeexcite naman ako sa version mo* Please continue your story! I like the part in your story wherein Deokman met again Castan and stayed in Rome! Very nice continuation. But how would you reconstruct Mishil and the mind battles between the Queen-to-be? Thanks!

Danne are you serious, you want me to take that ending seriously hahahha well bout MIshil, like I said once they return to silla, that's the start of conflict Mishil will continue to make life difficult for Yushin and Deokman and gaya, the battle of the minds will continue here....but yushin and deokman will be separated, mishil clan will make a conflict where in marriage between the two will not be recognized in silla, just like in the orig movie yushin will marry yeong mo.. hahaha are we serious about this.... but thanks a lot Dannee I know Febrie will react to our ending...

Evelyn Hi another Yudeok

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

@Dannee, Yes, Yu Shin deserves Deokman love, if I think it back, Yu Shin had left his family and Gaya just for Deokman. He intended to run away with Deokman, yes..he deserves her love. And if KNG played Yu Shin's role...hmm I think about Kim Nam Gil's character, he's a kind of guy who loves to play an extraordinary role, I don't think he will take the role haha. Yu Shin is outstanding man but the character is just straight, Yu shin is honest and loyal. While Bi Dam is so complicated and layered.

Before he took Bi Dam's role, he played Kang Moo's role in "portrait of a beauty" a saegeuk movie and his scenes were wow..haha, first, he refused to play another saegeuk/ historical role but after he read about Bi Dam character..he changed his mind haha, why? He said :

First, I met with the producers and heard about my character. I thought it was interesting how although Bi-dam actually existed, he had never properly been portrayed in drama or history itself. His character seemed to be quite spectacular, different from other characters and I would be able to make people imagine that he really did live his life the way he did, depending on how I acted his role. The directors explained that he would have a warrior-like feel from film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”. And Bi-dam hasn’t carried any weapons in particular till now but he will start carrying around a spear with the motive from “Red Cliff”

That was his answer to 10Asia :)

febriedethan 6 years ago from Indonesia Author

@heaven322, Korean movie makers will never change their scripts haha..except, if the actor start to go for army duty, the actor is committed suicide or something like that :) Their schedules are really tight.

@Maria, wow..what an ending girl!! Ok, Cheonmyeong is alive and she will meet her twin sister again, Deokman influences her sister to be a Queen and Bi Dam will compete with Al Cheon-rang and Kim Yong Chun to become the Prince Consort of Cheonmyeong haha..imagine that..Cheonmyeong and Bi Dam!

But, unfortunately, Cheonmyeong is not intend to be a Queen, so Deokman will replace her place. The palace court will definitely refuse Yu Shin as Deokman's husband, because he's Gaya's descendant. Shilla will refuse to be ruled by Gaya's descendant. They will force to separate Yu Shin from Deokman.

Mishil will offer a solution for Deokman. Yu Shin has to marry her family to strengthen Mi Shil's faction, Deokman has to marry Al cheon-rang and become a Queen, Mi Shil is still around to be the Queen's conselor, and Bi Dam live peacefully with Cheonmyeong. Deokman has to share the authority with Mi Shil but everybody is alive.

And I think I will make the Korean movie makers in rage hahaha...

@Tella Lazo, hi dear..we're having fun here..:)

@Evelyn Jacob, thank's for visiting! Bi dam's character after ep 50 made me despair, and I screamed to the screen. I hate the changes, but the scripts did not listen to me, sigh...But there was a relief after ep 57-58 Bi Dam became himself again, and down to the bottom of the earth in ep 61-62.

So, good for you as Yudeok fan :)

OMG! this is indeed a really great site for QSD fanatics. after reading all the comments here, i can now have a peace of mind. well QSD made a big impact on my life yesterday (after watching the episode finale on the ineternet). it made me feel uncomfortable of still remembering the face of bidam on his death ( his teary eyes) and of course QSD while her eyes were closing. my heart was aching for real, like if it was about to stop. ang i cant stop thinking till now why the ending was like that. this is more tragic than Titanic or Romeo and Juliet. yes, she's really a lonely queen, how sad.

anyway as i browse koreandrama.org's page last night i found that yoo seung ho (price chun chu) played as young damdeok (Damdeok became the 19th King of Goguryeo)in The Story of the First King's Four Gods. And yesterday while watching the last part of "Hero" on TV5,Phils. The actor (videographer) looks like Bi Dam. uhmm, im not really sure.

ive seen lots of asian drama since meteor garden became a popoular hit in the philippines. but most of the dramas i have watched was from GMA 7 coz this network has a better signal in our place. and in addition to GMA7 is QTV's asianovelas. right now they brought back coffee prince(my favorite of all) and jumong. jewel in the palace and the first king's four gods, aka The Legend, also made a repeat on this station.

anyway, The Legend was also a good kdrama. actually there was a similarity on the issues regarding to who was the real love of the lead character. and both the endings were also tragic for both leads. but on my opinion QSD has a clearer ending than The legend. There was also a petition from the viewers to make a different ending ( the real ending of the legend was changed due to the lead actors injury) and viewers were really disappointed by the changed ending.

anyway "historians" of this page, may i know who are the poeple of goguryeo, baekje and shilla on our present time. If there were great kings and queens from the past history why is that south and north korea are separated now? does the problem rooted from the ancient issues of kingdomship? hmmm, korean history is really quite intriguing.

thanks for the brain storming sessions here. it really helped a lot!

Febrie, Princess Chumyeong will die in my ending hahahah... and I am thinking of Deokman ending up with Bidam hihihi. I wiil try to think about after I finished writing my next article for a pet mag here in the PHil.. Please see my hub leaving your pets behind so you'll meet my other dog PM


Dannee 6 years ago

@Febrie: Hahaha.. wow what a different twist you have there for your ending. Your hub became not just a forum but also for fan fictions. I hope more fellow QSD lovers will share their own endings here so we could always feel the "QSD effect" in our lives. You're right, Febrie, we're all having fun here! =)

Hmm.. how about continuing the love triangle between Cheomyeong-Yushin-Deokman and how Mishil will use that to her advantage? haha.. then alcheon to the rescue or bidam? hmm.. haha (twisted thoughts already)


hanski 6 years ago

@ febrie: oh my gosh!

its been a month i think since i visited this hub and look at the long comments! this is just great febrie!!! qsd is nearing its end in Phil tv and i will again cry buckets of tears. hehehe! i really miss bidam! hey, i want to vote for kng and lyw at seoul awards but i could not enter. why is that?

@ marie

if i had my way, i would have wanted an ending where deokman and bidam marry and have kids (twin boys, and a girl) a girl who would later become the next MIShil. and eventually whom they would have to deal with.

and i was toying with the idea that both bidam and deokman abdicated the throne and gave it to chunchu who also got to reign but was cut short because boryang was also another mishil who attempted to gain the throne but was eventually overpowered by the couple.

but i cant think of a happy ending either. but i agree i would want a happy ending for the bidam and qsd. :-)


hanski 6 years ago

@ febrie, im thinking also what if bidam and deokman's daughter ended up marrying a Baekje prince? that would in the end pave way for the unification of the 3 kingdoms.;-)

@lbm: i understand baekje, silla, goguryeo are now all part of south korea. =)

Hello everyone,

I'm "QSD" from soompi forum. Deokman_7272k there has invited me to come, so here I’m.

Thanks Febrie for the informative history and Hwarang things. Now I know what Seondeok means. Indeed, she is the Great Queen. Her foremost duty is to provide the peaceful living conditions for people.

It’s nice to see this site going and going and still going, like energizer, even though many of us have already finished the series, and God knows how long ago that is. Long live Queen Seondeok!!!!!!!!!
