Decided to skip classes today. Woke up at 4 a.m. feeling feverish.  Nasty migraine and colds! Augh!!! Will write Queen Seon Deok's third review as soon as eyes and nose clear up.  Right now everything's still grainy, boggy, and stuffy... 


On a side note, I'm really trying to hate Lord Seolwon (the Gregory Potemkin to Russia's Catherine the Great in this drama) as much as I loathe Bojong's wingman.  But  Jeon No Min ironically, has such a nice, calm, reassuring, even comforting kind of voice that makes it impossible for me to hate his character.  Every time he calls Mishil "seju" (don't know what that means) or even when he's elaborating on some grand, devious plan to her Legion of Doom (yep, that's what I'm going to call them from now on), I'm always captivated and entranced by the sound of his voice.  Indeed, his is the voice of a poet -- gentle and melodious that could soothe even the most savage soul.  Ah, the metaphor! :-)  Needless to say, I'm also looking forward to what happens to Lord Seolwon in the next consecutive episodes.  I find the character immensely interesting because of his shrewdness (at times, his lucidity is frightening) and ardent devotion to Mishil.  Mishil, on the other hand, has found a partner and a soulmate in him (their relationship almost mirrors that of Yushin and Deokman). Both are equally gifted strategists, fiercely intelligent, deeply introspective, and ruthless as hell whose only fault in this world is to be born without royal blood.  Unbeknownst to them, it would be their mutual lust for power that would seal Deokman's fate and change the history of the Kingdom of Silla forever. 

P.S.  Chun Chu, you SUCK!!!
