Written Preview: “Faith” Episode 17
by joonni on October 4, 2012
Be ready to go through a major emotional rollercoaster just from three sentences. Because the last two episodes have been so fantastic, it felt like we reached the climax of the story so I was expecting things to wind down. What I forgot was that we have eight more episodes so there is a lot more story to tell and a lot more boundaries to push. And yeah, this drama is out to really test our characters, as well as our mental endurance. But it’s the kind of ride I love taking and I can’t wait for what the drama has in store for us.
Episode 17 Written Preview
To save Choi Young from a dire trap, Eun-soo makes an agreement with Deok Heung. Upon hearing the news, an angry Choi Young runs to Eun-soo to ask her to stay next to him. Gongmin orders Young to seize the palace, while Deok Heung, joining hands with Ki Chul, plans to mount an attack on Hyun Go Chon (Gongmin’s current temporary residence).
My first instinct was to scream “No!!!!!” when I read that Eun-soo makes an agreement with Deok Heung. But then I realized that was really Eun-soo’s only choice. If the dream that she had was a memory from her a previous time-slip (or something), whatever choice she made before, it was too late to save him. So it makes sense that this time, Eun-soo does something different to make sure Young lives.
This picture was posted at the “Faith” DC gallery. I guess it is what Eun-soo is going to wear being whatever Deok Heung gives her as a position next to him.
So accepting that Eun-soo is going to end up being next to Deok Heung…omg…we are going to get so much angsty and jealous Young. This fangirl approves. I love me the jealous angst.
Yipppppeeeee! Ouch, that’s gonna hurt Young so much though, since she’s not showing any feelings for him, but she goes with another guy. uhoh. But jealous Young? YAY I approve as well!
look at that and youll be satiesfied for at least 2 hours
And I was soo going to bed! I swear!
Due to another great love of mine right now messing with me I refuse speculate. SO I am just going with it. And I will enjoy me some rawrposessive!choiyoung.
At this rate CY is going to skin DH alive…and I am not entirely sure I wanna stop him.
And I will mourn the loss of good cop/bad cop KC and CY
Considering how hard I cheered when Young poured poison down DH’s throat, I’m completely for DH getting some serious retribution.
I may have replayed that scene a few times *cough*
It also might have to do with how fierce and hot LMH looks when he does that. 😀
I do believe my heart may have fluttered and I might have had to fan myself a bit.
oh poor Young! it’s gonna hurt him deeply.. he’s just wake up from his past.. well can’t wait for it!
This show won’t leave me alive..
Also, it sounds a lot like Lan Ling Wang’s part of the story where Yang Xue Wu makes a deal with Yuwen Yong and leaves to his side to save Lan Ling Wang…
Nutella, don’t you write Faith fanfic? I loved it! Anything new?
Ehehe yes, and I’m writing (what might be) the last part, and college sort of took over my life during the week so I had to go awol and write like a snail with its fingers glued shut TT_TT But expect the part finished by tonight/early morning of tomorrow ^u^ Thankies <333
I’ll check your blog tomorrow! Thanks! Can’t wait 🙂
THANK YOU SO MUCH JOONNI!
I was waiting forever on the written preview of Ep 17.
I saw this pic of KHS on FB today and thought to myself, IS ES GETTING MARRIED? HOPEFULLY NOT TO DH AS A PART OF A DEAL IN ORDER TO SAVE CY? *GAG!
I hope it’s NOT MARRIAGE AT LEAST!
Plus like ES said, Ki Chul did provide the best food, clothes..etc….so since she was dressed fancy, I had a feeling she’d be back in the clutches of the bad guys.
Well, ES’s Operation “Mata Hari” has begun! LOL!
I would love to see a jealous Young too…rattle his composure a little bit!!! LOL!
Imagine marriage! Young is probably gonna to lose his head if that every happens but since this drama is not makjang, I doubt anything like that would happen. Love how the writer is creating the conflict around this couple so far. Dramatic but never just romance.
You know, I was actually trying to plot a fic with ES marrying DH this morning..but my plotting got squashed CY. He didnt approve.
I would totally want to read this fanfic! LOL!
I will most likely still write it.. I dont let silly things like a pissed of warrior stop me. Besides Ill just threaten to put him back in the pink skinny jeans of city hunter fame so that will shut him up for awhile.
LMAO! Macho General Choi Young in pink skinny jeans—this visual is killing me!!!!
So you wont have to wonder anymore.
I haven’t watched City Hunter, so I don’t know that character…but I do know our general Choi Young and he wouldn’t be caught dead in that…come on, he won’t even shake hands with Eun Soo! LOL!
City Hunter is awesome. I recommend it. Lots of badass LMH and angsty shower scenes. And a great scooby gang.
You have to watch City Hunter.. you will fall more in love with LMH. XD He looks really great in that drama and his fighting scenes are just amazing!
I will have to watch City Hunter after QIHM….but for now I can only picture LMH as Choi Young…LOL!
Lol. I must be the only one that thought the pink jeans were awesome. And nodding my head in agreement…City Hunter-I normally stay away from any violent dramas, but it had LMH, so I would just fastforward over the ulgy. The story was really good…I’m secretly hoping for a City Hunter II…
They did awesome things for his butt, I will say that.
And yes …I WANT SEASON 2…(but but PROSECUTOR *sobs*)
I know. I think about him every time I think of City Hunter. He and my robo soldier from King2 Hearts…Such noble, loyal hearts. Gets me all misty eyed when I think about those two. Loved them both. By the way, Happy Friday to you all…Just two more days!!! 🙂
Sorry, somtimes my fangirling gets the better of me . And yes ONLY 2 MORE DAYS!
Earnestbot and Prosecutorpuppy nuuuuu bad memories, bad >.<;; I LOVED those pink jeans, I have no clue what everyone else is talking about *whistles* Happeh Friday to all of you too~ Especially since it's Thanksgiving Monday up here yeah~~ And before I forget.. last part of fic up and running http://rockharlequin.livejournal.com/15648.html … I fear the General may have gone a bit ahead of shaking hands..
“I would just fastforward over the ugly”…LMAO @ Sunshine..hehe.
Not going to lie…LMH’s butt is looking pretty good in Faith even if he’s wearing a “robe”. When he caught ES when she fell and they shot him from behind…IT WAS ALL SORTS OF GOODNESS..HEHEHE… *SWOON
The man just has a nice butt….It would be very hard to make it look bad.
very true about his cute behind- it’s not your typical flat asian butt. I saw him back in 09′ as he walked to his car with his bodyguards after the Trugen fan signing event- that good looking bodyguard was there that day too. LMH likes his skinny jeans, but I guess as long as he remains tall and lean, it will always look good on him. Not that many guys can pull it off well, but he is one of the few that can. 🙂
Personally I like guys with great skin and I remember thinking he sure does take good care of his or else his makeup that day was flawless. He also has a great smile and a contagious laugh – sort of like a little kid.
*is instantly envious* There needs to be a giant Faith Press-con-ish thing like they do for Big Bang Theory at Comic con so that we can see all the babies and breathe the same air as them (or not, if you’re into hyperventilating).
@Sunshine I like violence, but angst ain’t my cup of tea (yes, and I’m a asian drama addict… fate be a cruel cruel sadistic wench) so I did a lot of FFing in CH too~ LMH makes it aaaalll worth it~
I suppose we can attribute his smexy arse to the fact that he used to play football/soccer. 😉 If he buffs up a lil more, all the better
OMG… I use to think I was secretly a pervert when it came to LMH’s butt because I took every last bit of chance they gave us in certain scenes to focus on his butt in City Hunter… I swear I couldn’t help it… I was just gripping at them and swooning… but hearing others comments I think am safe…LOL
I did wonder if she was really going to go all “seductive spy” on us…you are right Pam Lee…looks like the operation “Mata Hari” is on.
I do hope though if DH tries any hanky panky with her that she pulls out the first love gift from Young ( I would like to think that he really gave it to her as a gift that served two purposes-to make her think of him whenever she saw it or felt it on her leg, and more importantly to defend herself when he’s not around…and he could have picked out an ugly knife. Lol. It is really is a pretty one.) and uses like he taught her. Ok, now I’m sitting here laughing and typing thinking of her doing that criss cross knife move, and then laughing as she did when she made fun of Youngs moves and serious face.
That would be a riot. DH gets stabbed, and meanshwule EunSOo is cracking up laughing in his face…DH would probably think she seriously went nuts,
I know! Young was carefully shopping for that dagger like a normal man would shop for a diamond engagement ring!!! And when he presented it to ES he was expecting her to swoon from excitement…not fear…LOL!!!! Only our General Choi Young! Gotta love him.
I can totally imagine that…
“What is this?”
“It’s a dagger.”
“I know that. But I already have one, the one you gave me. You want me to have a dagger on every limb now?”
“It’s a dagger… tosignifyourbetrothal.”
“Ahh ok… wait, whut?”
Hahahahaha! How fitting for Young. A dagger instead of a diamond ring.
IIf he adds some personal touch like you know like writing ES[hearts]CY in the hilt or something..
Hah that would be awesome!!
I read the preview, but thanks for posting the picture. I guess she does agree to be his queen or whatever just to save Young’s life. We all know she has something more than just saving Young’s life up her sleeve. Monday needs to hurry up and come! I’m so impatient, especially now that TTBY has ended =(
its her only way out to save the man he loves and to make it possible for him to do his duties again towards the king .She knows whats shes doing but the thing is this what makes the story exciting , we all want a happy ending but we forget to read between lines what matters the most is that right choices are made for all the good reasons there is .So lets wait , enjoy and let the story captivates us all the way .
I agree. She’s already said that she doesn’t want him to go fight and die, so she’s doing anything she can to keep him alive; even if it means being away from him. I’m pretty sure he will come to understand her reasons, though he won’t like it.
My baby is going to be mad!!! I don’t think Young will ever understand ES’s reasoning to hand herself over the the baddies in order to protect Young. Young is always about HIS own self-sacrifice…not others doing it for him. He’s a stubborn warrior who take his promises seriously…to protect and return ES to heaven safely. All their self-sacrificing for each other is killing me…. When will these two realize they LOVE each other?
I think they already realized it to themselves, but not to each other. They pretty much said it when they both confessed they wouldn’t be okay when she left. He sat up and stared at her silhouette because he didn’t know she felt that way. I’m hoping he just comes out and says he loves her next episode & that’s why he wants her by his side all the time.
He is ALPHA male types..So obviously its only HIM that he will think about.
I think even EUn Soo knows this as she yells at him in ep 12.
“how can you only think about YOURSELF?”
which basically sounded like a confession to me..
but hey this is a drama plus both of them are pretty clueless in that area so i am not surprised if he begins to spit ink like a squid in anger over Eun Soo’s decision
whatever it might be..
i am not surprised if he begins to spit ink like a squid ROFL. What a funny depiction. Love play with words like this.
LMAO… “spit ink like a squid”
okey, let us go to goryeo now. where da h*** that heaven’s door?!!
Since DH was the one who killed Jo Il Shin but in history, it’s CY who killed JIS the attempted throne usurper, I have a feeling that CY will be the one who kills DH in this drama.
All my hopes of DH being a good fella is absolutely dashed now. Ah, so much for being a naive fangirl. This blog is the only reason why I’m still living for the rest of the week until Monday comes. Thanks for the written preview!
p/s: ES being DH’s person is the only way that our taciturn CY is gonna get aflamed. Melikes. *grins deviously*
I hope ES will be the one to kill DH – with the red dagger CY gave her. CY already warned him.
Oooh! I like the idea, but unless he threatens CY right in front of her eyes, she isn’t going to stab anyone. Remember how traumatized she was after sort of stabbing CY?
Yeah, I can’t imagine Eun-soo actually stabbing anyone, even if Young taught her. Remember how they didn’t even properly finish that lesson.
Jomo, I think she would stab him 🙂
scroll up to Onichicks “Mata Harti” comment…I wrote a scenario that might cause her to go all warrior on Dh.
Nooooooo! This drama is going to give me a heart attack, I swear!
Poor CY. Poor ES. But then what choice does she have? DH needs to die pronto.
I wonder if he is here to stay for the rest of the drama. But considering how much he is getting on Young’s nerves, I don’t think he is going to be alive for long.
Argh!! Forget the kiss,,, now i am praying so that we dont get any separation tracks..
Heck i cant stand if they are not going to be together..
I second your thoughts CLASSY! As long as our OTP can stop the darn time loop and stay together, I’m HAPPY! I’ve read the spoilers so I am hopeful but not too hopeful because you never know!!!
I think Young is old fashion (putting it mildly) and Asian culture is traditionally not an overtly physically affectionate culture (I’m Asian so I can say this I guess…LOL), so it would be realistic if he never kissed ES…but ES is a modern woman, so she could plant that one TENDER KISS ON THE LIPS ON THAT MACHO MAN!!! Lol!
“Separation tracks” I think you meant separation in the story line? Sorry. Yeah, I was super hopeful when ES and CY tried to flee together but the DH the D-bag had to poison ES so that stopped their road trip on its track! It would have been nice to get 1 full episode of them just hanging out like a regular couple 🙂
But one full episode of that would ruin the pace of this drama and would be uncharacteristic of the general tone of this drama. but yes, our love of this couple has us wanting more happiness for them.
But I’ve always been a bigger fan of the angsty love because there is more dramatic tension. I think I’m either sadistic or masochistic. I think both apply in this situation.
How many times did I use “but” in this comment? 😀
You used ‘but’ three times..:)
but seriously.. if a freaking misunderstanding or noble sacrifice track pops up..
Grrr.. i think its obvious how my reaction will be..
I hope CY is smart enough to really get why she is doing what she is doing..
I know he is the perfect brain+brawn combo making him smexy but somewhere the hardware fuses out when it comes to Eun Soo..
So yes WORRIED!!
spelt with a Capital for emphasis
When it comes to physical affection as you put it, asian culture is a bit behind [I am asian too ;)].. and the current time setting of FAITH is waaaayyy behind, not having a kiss would make sense..
and by separation tracks i meant separation between our leads like in say ep 8 and 9 when she was with GI Chul..
Sorry i ought to have been a bit clear..
but i was soo worried to see what i had typed..
“TENDER KISS ON THE LIPS ON THAT MACHO MAN!!!”
It brought this instant reaction after i read the line..
Me too!! Right now i am indeed more concerned that they take separated ways (even if is only for one episode…) my heart will not survive it. T_T
An angry Choi Young runs to Eun-soo to ask her to stay next to him
My translation: A hot and passionate kiss to make her stay with him 😛
Monday comes sooner, please!
Haha! My jaw would drop to the floor if that were to happen and I’d watch that scene over and over over over…well you get it lol
I can’t wait to see Lee Minho’s eyes when he says that to her. It’s going to be delicious.
I don t know if this is true but a few days ago i read in the web (Viki channel) that General Choi Young was very much in love with his wife and It seems that the stele at his tomb shows that his wife’s last name was Yoo (first name is unknown). And it apparently Faith´s writer changed the female lead’s name to Yoo Eun Soo (before the publicity showed “Jeon Eun Soo”)…
If this is true… maybe we will have a happy ending. Hope so!
It is true that his wife’s last name was Yoo, but no one knows what her first name was. I did read that same spoiler on Viki & began to wonder why they changed her name from Jeon to Yoo, perhaps it is a clue to their possible happy ending.
in Joonni’s “Unraveling the Time Travel in Faith” blog, redpinkboxes said that the real CY had a daughter who ended up marrying the next King after Gongming (his son from concubine?) so maybe it’s ES and CY’s daughter together?
I’d be so happy if ES stayed with CY in Goryeo!
I will be also very much happy if they have a daughter together 😀
Brb, tweaking le fanfic~
If I’m not mistaken, Gongmin never had any kids. The king after him was the start of the Joseon Dynasty. So CY’s daughter married that king. If in fact they are going off of that, then maybe we’ll get a “20 years later” kind of thing showing them married with kids lol
@Pam Lee- how romantic…the “diamond ring” of daggers. 🙂
@ Nutella- Nice. 🙂 Btw- really enjoyed reading your Faith fan fic this morning…let us know when you write part IV.
I just posted up Part IV here http://rockharlequin.livejournal.com/15648.html ^u^
Nutella! OMG! I just read your fanfic! Loved it! This is really what I would have wanted to happen after their epic hug scene! It would have been a short interlude of happiness but what a perfect interlude! Thanks for sharing! LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT!!!
Aww thankies so much, I feel so honoured that I’m getting praised by all of you.. I’m usually too shy to even enter conversations/threads, so all your nice words make me so happy ^u^ (I replied to everyone who commented there as well, Sunshine and Pam <333)
@ Softy’s reply above! So freakin’ jealous! Can’t believe you saw LMH in person! Gah! He should have a fan meeting in the States! I would definitely go!
Joonni and Softy should do a blog fan meet up too! Gah! You gals are so cool!!!! Where in the United States are you two ladies from?
Oh my goodness. No kidding! I was going to try Replying to her comment, but was sure I would end up with a long skinny column of single words. 🙂
Don’t laugh at me, but I’ve never looked at LMH’s bum…I never notice it on guys. I notice height (my man is 6’3″). I know I’m going to notice it now that you, Onichick, Softy, and Nutella pointed out . 🙂
I know, Sunshine! The conversation on LMH’s butt is deservedly long! LOL! I bet we could talk about his delectable physical attributes forever!
He’s some good EYE CANDY!
Its human nature to notice his butt. No shame there. ….
Although I am now totally tempted to make a Lee Minho butt appreciation blog even though one must exist.
Im still amused they we totally hijacked this post to talk about Lee Minho attributes.
Sorry, Joonni! We did hijack your post. Your blog will forever be known as the appreciation of LMH’s behind blog! Lol.
I bet LMH’s ears are burning and that poor boy doesn’t even know why 🙂
Im sure he is used to them burning tbh
SO JEALOUS OF SOFTY. WHY DID SHE NOT TELL ME THIS BEFORE?!?!?! 😀
Hmm…I like my male butts nice and round so I actually never noticed LMH’s butt because he is so skinny. But if Softy saw the butt in person and says it is worthwhile to look at….I need to reconsider my stance on his butt. But I do have an obsession with this man’s legs. Kind of sad that we can’t see it much with his Goryeo robes.
I will just leave this here for you then. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTVo2w8HS3EN6mroBFOCep9GWR7uinaCasn3Cbm1CvWasbwtU71bA
Hee! I already have that saved but still love the reminder. Legs, legs, legs!
sorry Joonni, I feel so bad that your written preview post got off topic cuz I saw LMH. I thought you read my two celebrity sightings post on Blue’s blog already. If it’s any consolation, it might not look as good now cuz back then he was chubbier. When LMH isn’t doing any dramas, he lets himself go and the first place he gains weight is his face and stuff. I heard he lost 7 kg cuz of faith so maybe it’s less “bubbly” now. 🙂
Softy, did you just call LMH fat? In a nice way, of course…lol!
What I like about LMH is his killer smile and his contagious laugh as Softy said like a little kid, innocent and genuine. With all his fame, he still seems so real and spontaneous.
I forgot about that post! I apologize for my goldfish memory. LMH can definitely use the extra weight. Poor boy lost so much during “Faith.”
Off topic: But I just can’t hate KC… I swear the man won’t give me an opportunity to, at least not yet… He kills me with his expressions and things he says sometimes… the scene in episode 16 where he went with CY and ES to confront DH… had me laughing so much… ( I really love the cast for this drama)
Uh, huh…you know you love a drama when you even love the baddies! Faith’s characters are so lovable and charismatic and that’s the best element of storytelling ever! I loved KC too in that scene, but then again I think about what he did to his toy/painter, cut off hands and clawed out eyeballs, and I have to reconsider… But he’s so kooky sometimes, I forget his potential evilness….
I LOVE KC! Man is batshit but I love him anyway.
I wan him and CY to be good cob/bad cop and solve crimes. How awesome would that show be?
Haha. He is evil, but I know what you mean. His facial expressions can be so Jim Careyish…and lluvlee I was dying laughing during that scene…*stab* , “GET OUT OF MY WAY SO I CAN SEE THEM” hahahah. Can you blame him for wanting to see CY punish DH…his brother was killed because of DH scheming…
just a thought but if this is as epic as we think it is (es time travelling over and over to save cy) it means she’s definitely not going home :)))) YAY!! sorry es’ mom.
*SIGH* Is it Monday yet?!?!
hmmmm! that sounds interesting..choi young jealous? its gonna be fun.. 🙂 seeing choi young full of jealousy with eun soo seated next to another guy.. at least this time his going to show more of his love for her.. ayeeee!!! i’m so excited for the next 2 episodes this week!
ES told CYshe wants to do some “MATAHARI” tricks, there are few things she learned from movies, I suppose CY knows what her ploy will be all about .. the same tricks earlier how she lied to help catch the palace MOLE…
When are we going to watch it?! I’ve waiting for it
