Written Preview: “Faith” Episode 21
by joonni on October 18, 2012
Ki Chul is back, perhaps more deadly than ever. And Eun-soo might be the smartest lady out there. She sure knows how to get a man to want more. 😉
Eun-soo stays together with Choi Young as a Woodalchi member. Ki Chul, who is furious with the betrayal, uses Deok Heung to plan an attack on the palace, while Gongmin prepares to attack the domestic party that supports Yuan. Choi Young’s heart, which desires to keep Eun-soo by his side, grows more anxious as each day passes.
Woah, does that mean we might have a slight possibility that Young is going to ask Eun-soo to stay? I can just imagine the scenarios…well no. Brain is too tired right now but can you guys?
I’m surprised that Gongmin’s next plan of action is to fight the the domestic party that supports Yuan, not that because it doesn’t make sense, because it absolutely does, but because I guess I was expecting something a bit more epic in the final episodes. Like a huge battle scene between Yuan and Goryeo with Young in the lead. But I guess this drama is going to keep the conflict small-scale and domestic as it has done all throughout the drama, which makes sense narratively and production budget wise.

2 more days!!! (I’m in Central US).
Just wanted to know if anyone also follows the forum on Faith in Soompi. There was a post that the broadcast of Faith will be delayed/postponed because of a baseball game? I think they said the article was in Korean. Just wanted more clarification from the Korean speaking posters here.
Is dat so??? its making me anxious coz am already feel like am sitting on needle for ep 21, bt still am bit happy dat it seems there is a possibility for Dr, Jang to be returned on screen!!!!!
After I started watching Faith, my mind always swirls with multiple options like this… People, is it really my fault???!!!!
aissshhh! Faith what have you done to me.. 🙂 its like i’m being cursed..can’t believe i’m rewatching the drama from ep. 1..i’m currently on the 15th episode..
ohhh, dear monday, can’t you just come by now..i’m feeling restless waiting for episode 21 to get aired..
1 more night to go before monday but it seems like a year of waiting..
This is how I feel every day. What have Faith done to me? What have this blog done to me? I’m re-watch the episodes like countless times. Every day my 4 year old goes ‘Mommy….I see General Choi Young and Dr. Eun Soo every day’. I listen to the Faith OST daily to the point where he screams ‘your music is too loud, MOMMY (practically screaming at the end there). I can’t hear my Team Umizoomi’. HA!
Damn…it’s only Sat afternoon here. It’ll be a decade for me before Monday morning comes around, so I can read Softy’s recap and watch the raw…AAISSHHH.
Wishing everyone a good weekend! May we all survive till Monday!
when will ep. 21 show be available? are they done filming the whole series?
Ep 21 will air on Monday, 10/22/2012 at 9:55pm Korean Time.
the agony of waiting continues….
oh and as for your question whether or not they’ve finished filming the series…no clue…most likely not…hence the reason we usually don’t get previews the next ep.
Oh my god u guys are the best thanks for the recap and previews of faith muahh
Thanks joonni for the written preview!!
Side: I know this probably isn’t the best place to ask, but are you planning on writing your thoughts for ending of Arang and the Magistrate? Would love to hear your take on the 2nd half of the drama! 🙂
I only watched the ending of AandM to help softy and I haven’t been able to catch up yet with the middle episodes. I’ve given my interpretation of it at her blog but it wasn’t an evaluation of the ending. I’m actually preparing a huge post about a theme that occurs in Korean drama that was inspired by that ending. So in short, for now before I have watched the drama completely, I will say I liked it fine because my friend helped me understand the meaning behind reincarnation and Buddhist belief. Without it, I think I would have liked it less but still found it satisfactory. How about you autumn?
I was slightly disappointed in the ending! My expectations were probably too high going into it but as I was watching the finale, I felt like it was rather choppy and at times very confusing! The very end with the cute kids and the whole reincarnation thing which gave our couple a much deserved happy ending kind of made up for it though! I still do love the drama overall! I will be looking forward to this huge post of yours ad I will go read your interpretation of softy’s blog next!
Y is it no like click button here so I can click all funny comments here hehe…
Get ready for tommorow pipol
Coz it is our PANIC MONDAY!!! 😀
Thank you for the preview! I actually wanted to see in the end of the episode a preview but there wasn’t anything.. So you really help me to wait patiently for the next episode…
Anyhow, I thought about something, hope you can comment to this and share your opinion 🙂
I thought a lot about the future ES.. and I figured out that there are a two. And why:
The first one rescue CY from being burning at the house (the trap, the reason ES was force to marry the uncle).
So, the only way future ES can warn ES is by seeing how CY died, so she found a way to warn ES.
After that, in episdoe 19-20, ES found another letter, pleading her to not give up on CY because she will regret that. Which means, he is alive!
I think ES saw him die once, warn ES to save him, and after that the ES that recieve the diary with the warn save him but after it something happen again to CY so she want back in time again and wrote another letter, the one that saying to ES to come back to the palace.
I really hope that we would found out what was writting on the diary that the uncle burned, and what is the third thing of Hwata..
And who else thinking too that Hwata is actually ES?
Whew! Didnt check on comments for two days so it took it me a while to read through them all. I dont want to spam so while i cant reply to each comment, i just want to say thank u all for leaving your thanks, replies, thoughts, and love!
If ES went back and left the diary and the note at the waterhole for ES as guides for herself – would she also not know that at the point she was running away with Young that she was poisoned – and would she not leave an antidote for it?
I am thinking that the 3rd item may be a syringe/vial of penicillin in whatever form it needs to be in to last the years – although normal shelf life is 10 years – anyone with medical knowledge? or even something for her to grow Penicillin from!
I agree, that is what I was saying this morning! She left, the Queen died, CY was devastated he did not prevent it, ES got cured and came back and left the plastic film in the rocks. Perhaps she came back with knowledge how to make antidote, because I don’t know about antibiotics shelf life
I am not sure if penicillilin could help her. I don’t remember what the poison was but penicillin is an antibiotic and not the antidote. And I don’t know much about innovations but any drugs can’t last for centuries.
Surely, if Eun Soo could get to Goryeo she also could do something like what you told about. Anyway it would be less fantastic)
What Eun-soo really needs is an antibiotic but since in Goryeo time, they didn’t have a word for that, they are using the word antibiotic.
And yes, even if the third item is an antibiotic, it wouldn’t have lasted that long. 😦 What is going to happen to our Eun-soo?
i think she’ll be back to the future to cure herself..and i wanted CY to go with her to the future even just for a day.. 🙂 i wanted him to experience life in the future and get to know history about himself..at least even if they part, he’ll have the courage and faith to live as a warrior for goryeo..its quite a sad scenario having them parted..though i’m hoping for them to stay together til the end..
A recipe for the antidote would solve the problem. Could this be written in the last pages of her diary?
@gukja, that’s exactly what I think (and hope!) the hidden note is! 😉 the instructions in order her be able to prepare the antidote and stay. That note may be hidden inside the 3rd relic 😉
And,… We have to remember that ES is a scientist… (someone capable to do her own make-up and toothpaste) she could be also capable to make an antidote. 🙂 i’ m holding so bad to that thought to have a happy ending!
you and I both sister:)….never letting this hope go until the very end….
to lessen all our agony & anxiety
dis would help us to find a happy conclusion :)…
Why is Kim Hee Sun’s name Yoo Eun Soo in “Great Doctor”?
“Great Doctor” deals with the love story between female doctor Yoo Eun Soo and soldier Choi Young (Lee Min Ho).
Choi Young lives during the time of King Gong Min and Princess No Guk. Yoo Eun Soo time warps from the present to this particular point, where King Gong Min returns from Won, the dynasty in China, as he plans to revolutionize Koryo. Many other historical figures like Jo Il Shin, Duk Heung and many others appear in the story. It does add fiction to the history but these are many names that the viewers are familiar with.
At this point, Yoo Eun Soo’s name is getting the attention of the viewers. By the time Choi Young becomes general, his second wife’s last name was Yoo. It could just be a coincidence but there are stories about how he really loved his second wife Yoo. There isn’t much about his second wife in history so it’s fully possible that people added their imagination to it.
In “Great Doctor,” the story emphasizes that Yoo Eun Soo didn’t just end up in Koryo for no reason. Will she actually meet a happy ending in Koryo, next to Choi Young?
I think they’re possibly keeping it small scale, so not to mess with history then again history has already sort of been altered. But maybe they don’t want to do anything too drastic just in case in the end Eun Soo does go back her time and the future won’t be all messed
I heard a rumor that ep21 telecast will be delayed/postponed because of a baseball game..not sure if this is true..hope not..can’t wait one more day for our dear daejang and his lovely euison..:(
so the rumor was really true..i have read it now at we are minoz facebook page..the airing was delayed for about an hour..they are really torturing us hahaha!
here’s the link:
Really..thanks for the info jhen..at least it’s only for an hour..I thought it will be postponed for another day or week T_T
I love the music from Faith. Is there a OST cd available for purchase. Keep up the good work. I love your analysis and recaps.
Geh. CY being anxious makes me anxious. *flails*
And can I just say that he freaking looks at her like its christmas morning when he sees her in the armor?
Im going to need lots of booze to get through the next two weeks.
Correction, Onichick! He looks at her greedily like she’s his 1st Christmas present ever and he can’t wait to rip off the wrapping. Sorry, when you said “Christmas morning” I had some pervy thoughts and could NOT-NOT reference it. LOL!
Oh, great, when Class gets back to read this comment, our Rated G enforcer is going to have my head! LOL!!!
ROFL ,… 😛
now i can’t get that image out of my head hahaha
Actually I have been wondering what was taking everyone so long to get into the gutter. Ive been down here for awhile *cough*
Why would Class have your head? You cant corrupt the-already-there?
Less I cause for yet ANOTHER path down the bunny trail I am going to stop. And be well behaved *whistles innocently*
“You cant corrupt the-already-there” LOL. So very true hahaha
Classy accused me of being too pervy with my LMH adoration comments. However, I have been behaving ever since a reader said her parents limit her internet access and therefore she’s unable to watch Faith. I asked her sheepishly how old she was but she never got back to me. LMAO! Oops! I bet she’s like 13!!! Hence, I had to remind us fangirls to keep our comments G-rated…which has been futile. 🙂
Alright. Good point. I will keep my corrupting to a minimal.
You should see my tumblr…All sorts of wackyness happens in my tags. Spcially when I was watching QIHM
Link to your tumblr please!
Omo. I’ve been gutter-free all day and then that ‘Sword of a Warrior’ post kept me in that clean mode all evening.
I’m now OFFICIALLY back in the gutter. I’m imagining what’s going on in our reserved stoic General’s mind while looking at his Imja (i’m sure it’s somewhere along the line of unwrapping his gift…HAHAHHA!) What are you guys doing to me? Can’t even peek in that room they share for another 12 hours…***sigh sigh****
Pam’s going to have my head too…let alone Classy ****anxiously biting my fingers in fright***
a message to our General: Please play with your Christmas gift. That’s what they are for..ha!
Never fear Gukja, I am always in the gutter. You will never be alone there.
Good to know, Onichick. Thx!
Official members of the Gutter-Club:
Can’t you see me, gukja? I’m sitting right beside you in the gutter. LOL! I know, can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode! Let’s hope it starts off where it ended, in Young’s private quarters with ES. Oh, yeah, let our imagination run wild!
Looking to my right…oh there you are, Pam. Glad you could join me…LOL.
Yeah, I’ll meet you in front of the General’s room tomorrow…front row seat for us. ha! ***rubbing my hands together excitedly***
(P.S) Thanks for not beheading me, Pam. I was good yesterday…
lmao pam! nice one “he looks at her greedily”..
If its merely antibiotic which is needed, why can’t they utilize the antibiotic pills kept by CY? (The plastic bottle with pills and one small yellow flower) Is it sufficient?
That bottle he carries around so preciously is ‘aspirin’, not antibiotics. Even if it’s antibiotics…I believe it has to be the appropriate kind of antibiotics…not just any kind.
Icic…. True also. Thanks for clarifying!
That was aspirin, not antibiotic.
If its merely antibiotic which is needed, why can’t they utilize the antibiotic pills kept by CY? (The plastic bottle with pills and one small yellow flower) Will it be sufficient?
But with the royal doctor out how will the last few minutes of the long trailer of this show come true???
Every time she does something in Goryeo she was not supposed to do it changes the future, it is called a Paradox. She saved the kid that will kill CY in the future, when CY was talking to him, he even told him how to fight “don’t fight all the guys, just take out the main guy! Big mistake!
I have not seen ep. 21 yet here in Florida is not up yet, but by the commentaries I read. SY is telling ES she saved someone she was not supposed to, this person did bad things. Someone left a note asking to kill her, because she keeps changing the future!
Omg was I the only onr screaming yes to that proposal!!! We still did not get a kiss, I dk how ES could pull away from those masculin juicy lips.
