Dae Gil, a son of a noble, and Un Nyun, a slave girl, are in love. One day Keunommee, Un Nyun's older brother, sets his master's house on fire and runs away with Un Nyun. Because of the fire, Dae Gil loses his family and becomes a slave hunter to catch Keunommee and Un Nyun. even so, Dae Gil still can't give up his feelings for Un Nyun.
Tae Ha, a general-turned-slave, escapes when he hears about Crown Price Seo Hyun being in danger. On the way he runs into Un Nyun who ran away on her honeymoon.
Dae Gil, the number 1 slave hunter in the country, is after Tae Ha.
The story of their entangled fate unfolds. *(taken from KBS Global Media, reworded by o-cha)

Subtitles:
With S2 has Chuno listed as their possible project
Thanks to soompi thread:)

Well, judging by the first episode, it is one hell of a great drama. The pacing was good, the acting was good, the storyline is great. Lets hope the ratings will be high enough and drama won't loose its pace.

Try Viikii or Mysoju for watching. Although I prefer download and watch without interruptions, in fairly good quality and waiting for the next part.

Interesting that, on the poster, Lee Da Hae's skin is corpse white, and the guys are much darker - or do they need a shower? Hello Asian female obsession with white skin!

Updates:
"Chuno looks like a hit! The premier episode of the stylish historical fusion drama grabbed an almost 23% rating, a phenomenal number for a new series. The twice-a-week drama stars Jang Hyuk as a nobleman driven to revenge against the man who destroyed his family, played by Oh Ji Ho. Things only get more complicated when both fall for Lee Da Hae, an escaped slave who disguises herself as a man."

It's tense, has some disturbing images (or at least suggestive). Well, I'm delighted, and waiting impatiently for the next Wednesday :mrgreen: I love period drama/movie, so everything's in place :wub:

Yup, JGS is a root of love for K-dramas, that will soon bloom in your heart, dear^^

After the fist 4 eps this series is looking good (and so is Lee Da Hae). As usual there are several irritating characters but not too bad at this stage.

Love it how nearly all the non upper class people look like they need a good hose down and scrub except for the female leads.

You know what they say: dirty man turns women on, dirty woman turns men off^^
I just love this drama, and I have to say that it was unnecessary to blur image in the last episode. Or maybe I'm wrong? This is not a daytime drama, so what's the point, it's already PG 15.

:lol :lol :lol SO TRUE!!! I found myself totlly into Dae Gil (DG) and Tae Ha (TH) in first 2eps and when i was checking these two actors on wiki and google, i found them less attractive than their dirty/scrufy characters in chuno. :P
i am still on ep2, i am leaving it for later on when i have more eps and more subs to enjoy. but could not help myself from peeking into my raw eps :P

I hoped alot more people would watch this. It's one of my must see drama this season, currently at ep6 , can't wait for more. KBS is definitely gunning down with IRIS and then this. Impressive.

Dr. Vagoo M.D. If te first 3 episodes don't catch enough people it's so gonna fall. My take: I'ts gonna be recorded and the following 2 weeks are going to show the true ratings. :idea:

Yeah, I guess you're right. Chuno is like 40%, so I don't think OBGYN will make up to this. Plus, who is interested in medical dramas??

This ganked from allkoreandrama dot com

Synopsis

The drama deplicts the life of a talented OB-GYN doctor, Seo Hye Young, and the difficulties she faces with her profession. Her love life takes an unexpected turn when she’s pursued by two younger men: one is a pediatrician at her hospital, Lee Sang Shik, and the other is her friend, Wang Jae Suk.

Character Description

Workholic person who lives 365 days in hospital. She has issued many articles as well as has competent surgery skill. She wants to remain in school as a professor. She is a pro-choicer on abortion. She takes a positive position on re-build the abortion law which is not realistic. If she should choose one between mother and baby in emergency case, she surely save mother without any hesitation sacrificing baby.

Now, she faces a difficulty. While she has dated with Mr. Yoon who is senior officer in her hospital, she finds out her own pregnancy. But, Mr. Yoon already has a legal wife. After she does a lady’s abortion operation who bear disabled baby, she is dispatched to a local hospital.

obgyn-cast-7Lee Sang Shik (Pediatrician) / Ko Joo Won

Doctor who is in charge of newborn critical patient unit.

He has a character who is half child care center nanny, half doctor. Straight, a little bit inflexible character who likes baby very much and care very well.

Accidently, one day, he is trapped in elevator with Seo Hye Young and treated her morning sickness. After that accident, he meets her again in hospital operation clinic, then, he become a sole person who know her pregnancy.

When he sees she throw a tantrum to unfairness at the time of debate with patient, he tell to other person that she is a kind lady. Because of that comment, he is treated as a not ordinary man. But, he is interested in Hye Young who is little cynical, but open heart to patient. Rare man who sees her character as it is, not thinking she has too violent temper, too smart to get close.

obgyn-cast-6Wang Jae Suk (Obstetrician) / Suh Ji Suk

Sterility clinic doctor where Hye Young is dispatched.

Close friend with Hye Young – Alumnus of preschool, elementary school, and high school.

There is unique feeling between them which is less than love, more than friendship. He catches the sensitive atmosphere between Hye Young and Sang Shik. His heart become unique when Sang Shik carries Hye Young on his back, At that time, Hye Young is in crisis of abortion. He thinks the baby’s father should be Sang Shik, so, he let Hye Young’s mother know her situation and relationship with Sang Shik.

He has opposite position against abortion and he is Catholic. He is a good sterility clinic doctor who receives belief from patient.


Yeah....the standard drama torn between two guys blah blah.... Their ratings will not end well. The only way "tales of a vagina doctor" actually achieve title of super mega fun show is that the leads become pregnant. yes.....both of them...yes the guy too. and have a live birth. Seriously....This will not end well...at all...ever. :glare:

To be honest, I don't think Chuno will end good as well.
But the plot of OB GYN is so much not my cup of coffee, and I guess not only mine. Time slot is the second reason. Who can beat up now Chuno? Well, we'll see after two weeks.

I don't know what other drama could beat that now. 5 last episodes gained 1st place both nationwide and in Seoul. But if Lee Da Hae will keep her looks, I'm not sure about that flood of criticism, maybe the levee will break^^
Even though, very, very good sageuk drama :salut:

have you read about recent complains by viewers about chuno? it has not effected the rating but i read that number of complains is on the high.
mostly about LDH looks and the fact that she looks too clean and too beautiful in every scene and it sometime does not match the drama setting and theme. specially when all actors around her looking dirty. i agree, what striked me the most was seeing her always glowing with complete make up and clean and sparkingly face and cloths. with all traveling on the horse back, she has to get dirty in the way.
other complain was about her cleavage showing more often in scenes and director's decision to blue it out at the begining and now deciding not to do so. have not seen these scenes myself but i read tht viewers said it made it even worse. not sure about movie/drama ratings in Korea but from what i saw, they were hardly something to be concerned about. i don't what's the whole big deal. but i guess, if it happens more often, people will always wonder why. you can call it a part of fan service.
the funny is i did not read any complains like these when all male actors are semi-naked, with open chest most of times. i am blaming female viewers for these complians. :P

I think KBS made a huge mistake with blurring her cleavage in the last eps, but what can I do? It's not like drama is for those under 13, it is rated PG15, so useless fuss. And yes, LDH is way too clean. I know, there was her wedding, and she was supposed to be clean, but then, she run away. She was fugitive. i don't think there were cosmetic pads and tonic available through Joseon country. If screenwriters don't do something about this soon, the bitter comments will be coming up. It's not natural. I understand that it's not so appealing to show a dirty woman, but Chuno started so good and naturalistic, I expect more from it.

i am remembering HGD now and even with its bizzar fusion of old and new in every sense every where (in music, in the way they talked [i just can't get over the scene were she said "i love you" in English and hgd reaction to it]) and where you can believe and accept anything (like spotting a circle band aid sticker on JGS hand :P ) HYN character was just realistic in each time. she was clean when she had to be beautiful and she was not so in normal days. and she was suppose to the famle lead charcater too.
its not that LDH character was rich from the start. she was a slave herself. but the way she act is like she is born as a princess.
i agree, not natural at all. it's starting to get my nerves too. :unsure: but the show is just GREAT. :salut:

Nope, Lee Da Hae, main actress in Chuno^^. Everyone is talking about her photo-shoots for Marie Claire Korea, her cleavage (which was blurred), and cleanliness in Chuno.

I hae no clue about slavery in Korea but from what know about slavery in the U.S. is that there were slaves in the field and slaves in the house. I though that would be an excuse for a bit but now there is like 10 episodes and she is still fresh and clean? hhmm...I can't rationalize that.

Yes, slavery was something obvious in Korean society back then, still they were treated differently from those in US or Rome. They could be given some property in some cases.
But definitely, not soap and running jasmine water to wash pretty face^^

Are you referring to someone in particular? Being clean is a mistake, although easily forgiven. As you see, we're joking of course (quote after: The Shark from Craig Fergusson Show^^).
But this article is interesting though (but in Korean)

I have download Chuno until 10th episodes even though the subs only came for 7th episode - I don't care! The story is GREAT with superb acting from Oh Ji Ho & Jang Hyuk, Lee Dae He is one lucky lady. I agreed though she looked very polish for dimsel in distress..Jang Hyuk really knew Kung Fu, Oh Ji Ho admitted it during Happy days programme - dats explained why Oh Ji Ho's fighting scene don't looked so real - he used stunt man unlike Jang Hyuk. The pace & the story line is BETTER than the rest of other K-Drama, that usually in the middle it's start to bored but in Chuno, every episodes intensified each moments. I'm just biting my nails when Jang Hyuk starts to fight. WHEN WILL THE NEXT EPISODES AIRED???

Chuno airs Wednesdays - Thursdays.
Jang Hyuk is mouthwatering indeed, but fight scenes are somewhat ballet-like. I enjoy it though^^

The fight scene is definitely inspired by 300 the movie, the slowmo then fast forward-ish cinematography. Heck Jang Hyuk even said the director told him to come back with 300-ish body.

I'm not into it. I like classic fight, I have nothing against finesse and air in the fight scene, but overboarding it makes me bored. And they use ADHD camera, yes...

The music is classic FUSION SAGEUK type^^
The last episodes gave me the creeps. DG is such a complicated character. he was like this from the beginning, but now he's plunging into the depths of pure madness. His character became dark, close to a psycho. But still, I love him^^

The Slave Hunters (on KBS World @ 9PM) main star Jang Hyuk shows off his washboard abs in the magazine “High Cut.”

And I must say, you can definitely wash your clothes on them..

Jang Hyuk is featured in a 12-page pictorial and here is a peek!

OMG, OMG, OMG
i watched ep4 last night (this explains why i am so sleepy today at work and can't open my eyes) and i am torn between DG and TH.
those moments between TH and UN is sooooo heart melting. specially when he kept looking at her as he was leaving after was better. it's been a while since i have seen such an emotional scene in a drama that really gets into you.
on the other hand, DG. there is no way you can NOT love him. i just loved how he treats that little dance and how she is so in love with him.
i really can't wait to get home and see more. i am SOOO ADDICTED to it now.

YES 8)
I am thinking of watching his other dramas. but have to admit, his DG look is what's making me attracted to him. that scruffy look, because i don't like his rich boy image much.
this is the second JANG that made my eyes :goggle:

Hi!
I like Chuno too. Great music, good looking actors, fighting scenes, romance.
You can watch it with english or chinese sub on dramasub.com.
The problem is that I could only watch ep 1-14 with eng sub.
If you find the following episodes, please let me know.

:salut: :salut: :salut:
Thanks alot dear. but i still have problem. i found different 720p files that have different name than the one is being subbed. like with S2 has subs for 720p HAN version, i can't find this at all. instead i have 720p SAN version in mkv (i know this deos not matter much). does this make different with timing of subs if i used it. same for other eps, like there is sub for ep6, 720p CEO but i can't find it and instead i have 720 YuRi. is sooooo confusing :crazy:

can i say one more thing?

I AM TOTALLY MADLY INSANELY OBSESSED AND IN LOVE WITH CHUNO NOW. damn you TH and DG. damn you for taking my sleep away and making me want to watch you two all the time. :goggle: :goggle: :goggle:
ep 5 & 6 were just pure LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE. spcially that TH. :pale: :pale: :pale:

You can adjust the timing yourself, If you want MU, I can send you another pm with links to it.
No, I have a weak spot for mad people, so I'm rooting for DG. But I guess, UN will never leave her husband, damn it. Damn you TH!!

@E^^ Please, i will be grateful. :salut: :salut: :salut:
not so sure about editing the timing myself. never done it before. :pale:

as for TH and DG. :lol
ok, i think i always root for a gentle person. don't mind the weirdness and some madness too. it's so strange because i always go with 1st love/old love but in here, TH has totally captured my heart. i am telling you, his voice is making him even more appealing to me. but i really can't say that i don't like DG. as i said, i am torn between these two. i am going insane because i keep changing sides. one minutes loving TH another minutes dying for DG. total madness :goggle: :goggle: :goggle:

Yes, I know, this is what makes a good dramas and characters. And I have a really bad feeling about the ending, with all of these actions and words, I think there is no hope for DG. He will wind up dead. That's my opinion, but I guess everything can happen. Judging from his words, he is calling deep inside for death. I have such impression.

Hmm, I watched the last episodes for the second time, and I realized I don't quite like UN. I can understand her, and feel the sympathy, but I don't like her character at all. At this pace I'm not sure what screenwriters have for her in mind either.
This is what annoys me sometimes in dramas (on both sides of Tsushima kaikyou/Korean Strait), the lack of decisiveness in female leads. They're constantly waiting for a current of events.
Mukatsuku!! :mrgreen:

i have said it before, female character in korean dramas are weak, annoying and undecisive most of times. chuno is no difference. while i am so amazed by DG and TH characters thought out this drama, i still struggle to see anything unique and appealing about UN. apart from her sparkingly clean image. i don't hate her character at all. but still not very convinced by her too. watched ep 10 last night and so she has made up her mind and feeling about TH. finally!!!
only female character that i like the most in chuni is that girl who loves DG. she is such a breath of fresh air. i can't help to gigle over her cute and sweet moments with DG. i am not saying this because i want TH to keep his woman (because i want him all to myself :P jodan! jodan) but i really think that DG is better of with her than UN.

i need more drooling over TH. i jsut can't have enough of him :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
ps. don't you think that royal baby looks like our baby JGS abit? can't help thinking like this everytime i see that cute face :P

Yeah, I was yelling at my screen: DG you baka, forget about UN (and think of me, mehehehe), and look around!!!
About female characters in Kdramas... you know, I barely made it with BOF, Geum Jan Di was so annoying, so lifeless, I just wanted to slam her in the face. Nothing close to Tsukushi^^. I don't know why is that. They just sit around, sometimes scream and cry. They can't muster up and tell about their feelings, they always mess up... But I guess it's not the case only in Korean movie industry, everywhere women have less interesting roles to play, you know.
Baby? Chotto chotto. I had the same impression but then again, like you, I can see JKS everywhere, mehehe^^

ok, i am more drooling and obsessing :P
