    I am currently struggling through Conspiracy In The Court (2007)

    The storyline is a bit confusing, but I can follow.

    Worse, by far, are the ridiculous subtitles by the now defunct Written In Heavens folks.

    They used 18th century words (against a pop soundtrack - hello) and all the text is overwritten.

    Where a character might say, "Liar."  they have subbed, "Thou liest, foul knave of a cur."

    I've searched for modern, slim subs - no joy.  Even thought about resubbng myself, but the series is too talky.

    Hope you are faring better with your series!

     If I was you, I would have put down the drama a long time ago

     

    I'm watching Behind Your Smile. Love the plot and casts but it's excruciating to wait for only an episode to be aired a week.

    I could never watch an ongoing series.

    Usually, I wait until year's end, read reviews about the best dramas of the year and down the whole season.

    Of course, they often sit and sit while I view other nonsense.

    Oooh, I just checked - - your series won't finish until Feb 2017!  Bummer.

    I can only force myself to sit tight because the drama is worth the wait. 

    I'm so stubborn, aren't I? ( ͒˃̩̩⌂˂̩̩ ͒)

    And making more time for Hwarang and the others :P

    Conspiracy In The Court - 2007 - 5/10

    Conspiracy_zps1zxtytcz.jpg

    Costume K-drama set in 17th century Joseon.
    New king wants to relocate the palace capital to new area where there will be more food for citizens.
    Most courtiers and power brokers do not want to move.
    Labyrinthian maze of scheming, poisoning, assassinations, financial chicanery.  
    Plot is confusing, though not impossible if you persevere.
    More intrigue than action, with dozens of villains.

    Biggest drawback gainsaying recommendation art the Elizabethan subtitles.
    Verily, the sole subs hailst from the now-moribund Written In The Heavens sub chamber.
    Dialogue be heavy over-subbed, configuring archaic words and syntax.
    “Liar!” might get subbed “Thou liest, foul knave.”
    Gentle viewers wouldst squander precious time reading and pondering obsolete verbosity.
    Yea, methinks WITH aimed for historic veracity, yet hold steady!
    Yon play is enhanced with modern pop songs (which were not subtitled).
    Be thou warned, varlets and slatterns.
