Gu Family Book Ep 7

Kang Chi lost his consciousness after the fight.

History repeated itself. Chung Jo doesn’t want to be a gisaeng. Chun Ryun remembered how she resembled Seo Hwa’s attitude. Chung Jo was tied to the shame tree. When she lost her consciousness, she was brought inside the gisaeng house. She woke up with a food beside her.

Chun Ryun asked her whether she wanted to be retied at the shame tree or remain at the gisaeng house to eat porridge.

*

Gon thought about killing Kang Chi. The Navy Admiral and Yeo Wool suggested to take Kang Chi and decide what they’ll do to him.

*

Kang Chi begged So Jung to turn him back to human. Because of his appearance, he can’t return to the town.

Four days passed by and Kang Chi just stayed at the Moonlight Garden. He didn’t ate anything and refused to eat what So Jung gave him. Yeo Wool arrived and hurriedly hit Kang Chi’s head. She convinced him to continue living since it was only his outer appearance that changed. He was still Kang Chi. It was amazing that when she comforted him, his eye color turned back to its human color.

*

Kwanung took over the hundred year inn. The criminals will be slaves under him. Lady Yoon refused. Kwanung threatened her with a sword. The lady pulled that sword to pierce her body. Before she died, she cursed him that the inn will be his grave. The slaves cried out.

*

Kang Chi VS the beast inside him. Unfortunately, he lost and came up to a decision to kill Kwanung and everyone. Yeo Wool obeyed So Jung and ran away. She asked for help.

Gon blocked Kang Chi’s way to stop him from murdering innocent people. So Jung gave Kang Chi the bracelet that will turn him back to human. Kang Chi was tied like a prisoner and will be sent to the police. It was the governor’s wish.

*

Chung Jo saw Kwanung at the gisaeng house. NOOO!!!! Good thing, Chon Ryun arrived. Chung Jo returned to her room. Kwanung told Chon Ryun that there should be no more mistake.

*

Kang Chi faced the police the next morning. He accepted the death penalty but he requested to kill one more person and that was Jo Kwan Woong. He even exposed the lord’s bad side. The townspeople watching him started murmuring.

Kwan Woong asked what else could Kang Chi give asside from his life. He was talking about his bracelet. Oh don’t you dare remove that from him or else, the whole town will be in chaos… Most importantly, the story will end when Kwan Woong dies.

Kang Chi was about to remove his bracelet and become a beast since the execution will start, when the Navy Admiral arrived. To everybody’s confusion, he said that h he was there for his subordinate Kang Chi. Yay! Thanks, Lee Soon Shin! You saved the day! =D

Gu Family Book Ep 6

So Jung appeared in the middle of the scene and hit Kang Chi at his abdomen. Then, they disappeared. Kang Chi wants to go back to the Hundred Year Inn. So Jung said he has to remain at the mountain because it was Kang Chi’s mother’s dying wish.

*

Tae Seo was tortured so bad. Chong Ju and the other servants will be sold as state gisaeng. Kwanung will buy the Inn and will promote the current police state officer. History repeated itself because of Kwanung. This old perv! Argh! Great acting, anyway!

*

The police made up a story that Kang Chi was the one who killed Park Mo Sul. There would be a reward for anyone who will be able to him.

Kang Chi’s enemy searched fro him and even tailed Yeo Wool and Gon. Because they’re afraid of Gon, they stopped following the two in the mountains. Kwanung’s troops were chasing Yeo Wool. Kang Chi hid her. He still thinks that she was Mr. Dam. 😛 The troops were gone and Gon punched Kang Chi.

*

Kang Chi came back to the Inn even if he’s accused for being a murderer.

Park family: Tae Seo will be beheaded, Lady Yoon will be a slave and Chung Jo will be a state gisaeng, and the other slaves and servants will become slaves to government officials.

“Just for one letter, how can you kill people and ruin and entire family? How can there be people who carry out this kind of injustice?” -Tae Soo

The guard answered, “Law is the sword and shield for those who wield them. That’s why it’s full of contradictions.”

Tae Seo will die. I guess Chung Jo’s servant will also commit suicide.

Kang Chi will save the ones in prison. But Kwanung knows that Kang Chi will attack that night. He let the police officer handle him.

*

Chung Jo called out for Kang Chi. Then, he arrived. Chung Jo told him to save her brother first. Kang Chi unlocked the prison. Lady Yoon refused to come with him. Because of her decision, the others preferred to stay. Kang Chi left with Tae Seo, Oh Man and the other Hundred Year Inn guard.

Kwanung’s men saw them escaping. Fighting time! Kang Chi left with Tae Seo and Oh Man. Kwanung’s right hand man and Park’s right hand man, one on one… FIght! Ting, Ting! =D The other guys left to chase Kang Chi.

Miraculously, someone offered Kang Chi a place to hide. He attempted to steal some money from Park’s storage then. Instead of punishing him, Park gave him a living.  Oh Man and Tae Seo stayed with that man. Kwanung’s man was about to kill Kang Chi. Yeo Wool killed him with her arrow. Yeo Wool and Kang Chi left. Kang Chi still thinks that he was a man and calls him either Prince or Young Master Dam.

*

Kang Chi was surrounded with Kwanung’s man. His bracelet was destroyed. Ah no! This is a disaster! The mountain was outraged. There has been an earthquake. A strong wind blew and lightning struck. Leaves of the trees had fallen. All at once, there was a lunar eclipse. See? It’s really a disaster! So Jung sensed danger. Kwanung’s men started attacking Kang Chi. Tsk. Tsk. He was powerless. Then the place was filled with little blue lights. Okay. I’m at ease now. Kang Chi’s wounds immediately healed and he became a… not really a monster… Uhm… just… a different creature… like Wol Ryung. Kwanung’s men saw his transformation, as well Yeo Wool who’s watching behind. The real men were scared. Who wouldn’t be? But I like his eyes. 😛

Gu Family Book Ep 5

Kang Chi was hurt even if most of their opponents were illusions. Where is Miss Youl’s partner? When Kang Chi got the real assassin, the illusions fade away.

Youl sent Kang Chi an ointment for his wound. Youl’s partner was Gon.

*

Park knew that So Jung really went to his inn to warn his gurads. In that way, Park was saved.

*

Chung Jo was so worried bout Kang Chi. She hugged him and asked if she would be able to live without him.

*

Ten days were left before Kang Chi turns twenty years old. So Jung told Kang Chi not to stay at the inn that night. He warned him that something bad will happen.

*

Miss Youl/Yeo Wool and Gon met up with Tae Seo. The young master was so happy to see her. Gon feels kinda out of place.

*

Lee Soon Shin, the newly appointed governer met Park. He asked for Park’s help in funding a large vessel to protect their country. Park funded him.

*

Kwanung made up a story that his man went missing and asked to search around the Century House. He accused Park for committing treason. Kang Chi arrived and gave proofs that Park won’t commit a crime. Kwanung got mad and his men attacked Kang Chi. However, when one of Kwanung’s man was about to kill Kang Chi with a sword, Park blocked him. He was the one who died from that sword. Kang Chi was so mad. A strong wind blew and his eyes glowed green whule saying “I will kill you” to Kwanung.

I just wanted to say that the director of this drama and the actor portraying Kwanung did great. Kwanung’s character made me pissed! Congratulations!

Gu Family Book Ep 4

Kang Chi finally met his saviours. He was snoring so loud at his sleep that’s why the lady called him ‘piggy.’ They had a rough introduction. The two tied him on the waist and the wrists, like a pet.

*

Park Tae Seo welcomed Gwang Wong’s arrival. They were surprised that the old chancellor was there. Jo Kwanung got mad since there weren’t enough rooms for them. Lady Yoon kneeled down and beg for forgiveness of her son’s actions. The late chancellor thought he saw Seo Hwa in the form of Chong Ju.

Kang Chi arrived just in time. Well, he was able to drive Kwanung away.

*

The lady was named Miss Youl. When she mentioned that Kang Chi was afraid of spiders, it was confirmed that he was her childhood savior.

*

Park and Tae So apologized to Kwanung. In exchange, the old chancellor asked for either the Century House or Chong Jo. Park won’t agree so the chancellor asked for 200 lashes instead.

*

Kang Chi saw the robbers again and made them repay the money they have stolen.

*

Miss Youl saw So Jung and asked what would happen after seeing the sign. So Jung said that either of them will die. Miss Youl thought about why it has to be Kang Chi (her destiny) of all people.

Kang Chi was mazed with her Soul Blade. Then he asked if they met before because he can’t recall it.

“If we don’t remember, it didn’t mean anything.” –Miss Youl.

That night they saw a black ninja running on the roof. They chased him but htey ended up being trapped by what Miss Youl called phantoms.

There was even one that disguised as So Jung in Park Mo Sul’s office.

Gu Family Book Ep 3

Kang Chi grew up as a stubborn who likes his sister, Chung Jo. Her sister was about to marry a noble man.

He received a letter from Chung Jo. But he met his mother Lady Yoon instead. He was given two choices.

“Leave the Hundred Year Inn on your own, and never come back. If you won’t leave on your own, I’ll have to make you never come back.” –Lady Yoon

*

There was this lady who’s good with sword and archery but dresses as a man. One fortune teller told her that she won’t find the man who’s destined for her because she dresses up like a man. So Jung told her that she’ll find him but she has to avoid him.

“If you can, you should avoid this fate… If you meet, it may be unavoidable. But you can choose your destiny. Even if you are destined, if you don’t choose that path then your fate can change. There is no way to stop fated love except to avoid it.”- Sung Joo

*

Park left the Hundred Year Inn for a while to meet up with the Police State Officer. He was told that he may be the next businessman to be murdered by Bi Joo, one of Gwang Woong’s man.

*

The lady dressing like a man and his partner saved Kang Chi from the Hundred Year Inn guards. This tandem was working for the police state officer.

He told her that he’s (Kang Chi) going to protect her. It’s because he thought that she was Chung Jo. Then he lost his consciousness. The lady saw Song Jung’s sign: a cresent moon hanging on the peach tree. She was holding the unconscious Kang Chi. She just thought that he was her destiny.

Gu Family Book Ep 1

It is a mysterious mountain, inapproacheable to human feet.

The very place where only mythical creatures protecting the mountain occasionally appear. The so-called Moonlight Garden.

Serously, the characters being mythical creatures caught my attention. That is the very reason why I was interested to watch this, not the title itself.

In this Moonlight Garden, a divine creature protecting Mt. Jiri was dwelling for a thousand years.

It was late night and a man was roaming around a dark forest. This man named So Jung was searching for Wol Ryung. No one’s responding. He got worried.

Someone’s running like a deer. Wol Ryung stopped when he heard a drum roll. It was done by a woman, at the bottom of the mountain. She was currently playing the drums as her performance for that occasion. He smiled and started to run again.

After the long run, he finally arrived at the town. He saw the arrival of three captives. A superior ordered them to get out of the cage fast. Seo Hwa was tripped and her brother got mad. He argued with the superior and the other lady, a servant of the captive iblings butts in. The superior pushed the poor guy to the ground. Then, he left them by the gate.

Seo Hwa asked the chief maid where they were. They were in Choonhwagwan, a gisaeng house.

Ah. Now I know. The woman playing the drums was a gisaeng and she was in a gisaeng house.

When the gisaeng was done with her performance, the audience applauded and praised her. She was the Head Gisaeng Chun and what she did was a five drum dance.

*

Seo Hwa was sold as a state gisaeng. But she doesn’t want to go there. She wanted to die instead.

It was revealed that the captives were children of Deputy Minister Yoon and he was just executed a while ago because of treason. Head Gisaeng Chun addressed Yoon as a state criminal and the lady was so mad. She even said that Seo Hwa doesn’t even have a choice but to be a gisaeng. Chun was so mad for using “lowly” as an adjective for a gisaeng. They were surrounded by a lot of men. She ordered Jang Shoe, one of her men servers, to strip Seo Hwa. The latter just cried. Then, Chun ordered to tie her up. Two men tied Seo Hwa on a tree trunk. Her brother and servant were locked up in a storage room.

Seo Hwa was left outside, shivering. She’s tied up in a shame tree. The chief maid told her to leave all her pride on that tree and plead for forgiveness the next morning or she’ll suffer even more. She refused then she started shouting, begging to set her free.

Wol Ryung took pity on her. But So Jung told him not to meddle with humans.

*

<flashback>

One brght morning, the Yoon family’s house was surrounded with soldiers. Jo Gwang Woong was the leader. He accused Seo Hwa’s father, Gi Soo, for being a traitor. Gi Soo was so mad when Gwang Woong said that Seo Hwa will be a state gisaeng. He was about to pierce him with his sword. Gwang Woong was fast enough to kill his noble friend with his sword. Blood spurted on his face as well as on Seo Hwa’s.

<end of flasjback>

*

In the meantime, Gwang Woong was having fun with the gisaengs. Head gisaeng Chun Soo Ryun arrived and greeted him. He was just promoted as a senior rank five officer. He even told her a lie that he made a promise to his friend: to be the first one to bed with Seo Hwa. It would take at least two or three months to be a gisaeng. Seriously, this perverted old man… Ugh. I hate him! RAWR! Gwang Woong ordered her to shorten it to five days.

*

The next morning, Seo Hwa was seen by the villagers. People laughed at her and kids threw stones at her. She was humiliated but she insisted that she won’t become a gisaeng. Wol Ryung watched her all day. He’s confused if he’s going to help her or not.

Three days passed. Nothing to eat. Nothing to drink. Bleeding head. Seo Hwa was loosing her enegy that she lost her consciousness.

Wol Ryung was about to help her when So Jung found him. He was told not to meddle with her destiny even though she’s a youngster facing a cruel punishment. But he was determined to help her despite his promise that he won’t meddle with human affairs.

“The first exception is the most crucial mistake. Once you make the first exception, the second and third times become easier.” –So Jung

Wol Ryung got mad that he threw So Jung’s walking stick. I thought he’s going to hit So Jung. The stick pierced through a huge snake’s body. Then, he melted the reptile until it’s torned into pieces. Finally, he went to rescue the poor girl. He came back to Seo Hwa but she’s gone.

*

Now I know. Dam was the Yoon family’s servant.

Dam was so happy upon knowing that Seo Hwa came back to her senses. Her mistress just had a high fever. The head gisaeng had a change of heart and ordered to bring her inside Choonhwagwan. Seo Hwa wanted to escape. Even if she die, she doesn’t want to be there.

Soo Ryun came in. The window was opened and saw that her brother was tied up. He was surrounded by lots of men. The young master said he didn’t care whatever happens to him as long as Seo Hwa won’t become a gisaeng. They started to beat her brother up. She couldn’t take it anymore. She accepted to become a gisaeng.

*

The chief made dressed her up. I never knew that gisaengs should have a tattoo on their right shoulder blade.

*

The young master heard the news that Seo Hwa will be with Officer Jo that night, he asked for Dam’s help. She’s the only one who could do his request. They know that Dam will be in big trouble if the plan was revealed but it was the only was to save his sister.

Let me guess. Dam will pretend to be Seo Hwa?

*

Seo Hwa was so mad and terrified once she discovered that the one she’ll be sleeping with that night was Officer Jo. The chief maid said that she can’t do anything about it.

Seo Hwa reminded me of someone. JR’s partner in Dream High Season 2.

She was about to commit suicide when Dam came. She said that they’ll exchange clothes. Dam said she’ll be alright after a few beatings but things won’t be the same for Seo Hwa anymore. The plan was to let Seo Hwa escape. The mistress has to stay alive in order to clean her father’s name, revenge on Gwan Woong and to take Dam back. The two ladies were in tears.

“You have to stay alive. If you die, you can’t accomplish anything.” –Dam

*

By night, Soo Ryun came inside the room to check Seo Hwa. I thought she won’t suspect anything. But it was discovered that the one at the room wasn’t Seo Hwa. It was Dam. Soo Ryun slapped her so hard that she stumbled to the floor. The head gisaeng asked where Seo Hwa was. Soo Ryun was about to punish her when Dam made up a story by telling her that she just exchanged clothes with Seo Hwa and she doesn’t really know anything. Then a gisaeng came inside to say that Officer Jo just arrived. Soo Ryun was so stressed! She commanded the chief maid to tell Jang Shoe to capture Seo Hwa. Then she told Dam to serve Officer Jo that night. Dam begged her not to but it was decided.

At the same time, the siblings escaped into the dark forest. Omo! Hurry, guys! Hurry! Jang Shoe’s troop might catch you! >.<

*

Wol Ryung noticed a difference in the ambiance of the forest. There was something going on.

Wol Ryung looked like an anime guy. He can be  a good cosplayer! =)

*

Officer Jo was so impatient. He’s so fired up to bed Seo Hwa. You want me to literally set fire on you, old man, huh? Ugh. I’m pissed with this leech!

Soo Ryun talked to him first. It was the child first time and she’s scared. The head gisaeng requested to turn the candle off. She also said the they didn’t told the child that she will be serving him. If the child knew about it, she might kill herself. Officer Jo was convinced so he blew the candle light off.

Dam came inside the room and Soo Ryun went out. She was ordered not to say anything. The door was locked. She attempted to escape. But won’t be able to do that of course! Then here comes the perverted officer.

*

Seo Hwa tripped herself. She was worried about Dam. Jung Yoon told her that there’s no time left. They continue to run but she’s tripping as always. Jang Shoe’s troop was chasing them and they’re getting closer and closer. Omo! Wol Ryung, save them!!! Seo Hwa was tired so she told Yoon to run away. She’ll hide herself from Jang Shoe’s men. They must split or else, both of them will die and they won’t be able to accomplish their mission.

Jung Yoon promised to find her no matter what and left. Seo Hwa noticed that Jang Shoe and his men were approaching. Seo Hwa took a hair clip with a pointed end. She was thinking of commiting suicide. She was about to kill herself when she saw small blue lights around her. Later on, she lost her consciousness or would it be better to say ‘hypnotised.’ Before she fell to the ground, Wol Ryung was able to catch her. Way to go Wol Ryung! =D Before Seo Hwa fully lost her consciousness, she begged for help from him.

Jang Shoe and his men saw Wol Ryung. The latter demanded them to leave the forest. He even set up a tornado to scare them away.

*

Officer Jo was so mad when he discovered that he bed with a midsevant. He slapped Soo Ryun and almost kill her. The chief maid said that Seo Hwa ran away. Soo Ryun begged to give the child one more chance and promised Gwan Woong to bring Seo Hwa back.

*

Next day.

Jung Yoon woke up. If he’s a mythical creature, he could be a wolf. What do you think? Sad to say, a group of three men caught him. He was brought back at the city.

Dam saw him. He was so beaten up and he’s about to die that day. For the last time, Gwan Woong asked him where Seo Hwa was. But he didn’t answer so the soldiers hanged him up with a thick rope. The soldiers wearing cone hats reminded me of dwarfs. XD

“Dam, thank you. I won’t forget your kindness even in the afterlife.” –Jung Yoon

It was revealed that the two had an intimate relationship with each other. Now, Dam was the one who looked like a zombie.

*

Jang Shoe reported to Soo Ryun that they saw a gumiho in the forest. He thought that they’ll day last night. Also, he thought that she had been a gumiho’s victim. Officer Jo heard the news.

Dam couldn’t take it anymore so she committed suicide.

*

Seo Hwa woke up inside a cave. Her sprained ankle was treated. She walked outside and saw blue lights all over the place. It was like a paradise in the dark forest.

Wol Ryung saw her and introduced himself as Gu Wol Ryung. Ah. So the Gu family was composed of mythical creatures. This is going to be fun! =D

*

Sheriff Dam Pyeong Joon came to Gwan Woong’s office. He will be the one to organize the dispatch group in search for the gumiho and Seo Hwa’s dead body.

So Jung saw the troop and hurriedly went to Wol Ryung’s place. He was surprised upon meeting Seo Hwa in Wol Ryung’s place. He commanded him to send her away. But Wol Ryung refused.

Wol Ryung admitted to So Jung that he fell in love with Seo Hwa at first sight. He requested for the Gu Family book. He wanted to become human.

Narration: In that Moonlight Garden, their sad legendary story was just beginning.
