#TheRedSleeve San’s wife - Queen Hyoui : a thread #LeeSeYoung #LeejunHo (photo from the drama Yi San - wind of the palace) Image
Queen Hyoui is most mysterious character of #TheRedSleeve . Quoted many times all along the drama, we never get the chance to see her. But at 1st, when I heard of her at ep16 (when San’s running to Deok Im after learning her pregnancy changes his mind to see the queen instead) …
…i was in choke. I wrote about what I thought was a mistake at that time. But, San’s wife is mentioned several times since the beginning of the drama #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
I still think though it was an error for not showing her bc she played a big role IRL in Deok Im’s refusal, and bc of the plot twist of ep16, which was coming out of the blue #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
San married Hyoui in 1762 (year of Sado’s death) at the age of 10 yo (international age). She was 8. Royal family members were married children but the wedding was consummate at 15 yo (for the men)/14 yo (for the women) #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
When San meets Deok Im in the drama as children, he’s already married. That’s why his hairstyle is the sangtu (hair tied in a topknot, with an headgear), used by married men only. #TheRedSleeve #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo Image
In the movie The throne, Sado gave the advice to the newly weds to get along with each other, as the key of their happiness in life. But irl, they never got along #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
Yeongjo loved Hyoui because she refused to come back to her family, after sado’s death, asking to stay no matter what with her husband #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
Queen Hyoui never succeeded to get pregnant, despite all the infertility medicine she took. When San proposed Deok Im for the 1st time to become his concubine at 15 yo, she refused bc Queen Hyoui didn’t have a child yet. #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
As Deok Im was Lady Hyegyeong’s court lady maid, she probably knew personally queen Hyoui #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
In 1762, San was sent living to Yeongjo’s palace to ensure his survival. Hyegyeong sent him to reinforce the bond between them so the grandfather wouldn’t be tempted to kill him one day as he did for Sado #TheRedSleeve #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
Princess Hwawan (aka San’s crazy auntie) played a big role in her life as she replaced her mother at that time (unbelievable! I know! Specially when you know how it’ll end badly for her). But she turned San again Hyoui #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung Image
When San proposed the 2nd time, Deok Im refused for the same reason: the queen didn’t have a child yet. And she never would.The eve of her death, Deok Im asked the queen to carry the heir of the throne. She never gave up that idea till the end #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
It’s said that queen Hyoui was sad when Deok Im died. They knew each other for 20 years and Deok Im, who stayed humble & modest, never used her position as the king’s favorite & mother of the crown prince to be disrespectful to anybody #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
Queen Hyoui died 21 y after Jeongjo. Her name, queen Hyoui (the kind empress) was given posthumously by king Gojong in 1899. #TheRedSleeve #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
There’s not many things to say about queen Hyoui bc JeongJo didn’t leave records for her as for Deok Im. The 3 of them met probably in 1762: San & Hyoui got married and Deok Im entered the palace as a gugnyeo. They sealed their destiny tgt for the best & the worst #TheRedSleeve
End of the thread 🧵 Queen Hyoui #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung

I really had high hopes for #TheRedSleeve at the #BaeksangArtsAwards2022 . Congrats to #LeeJunHo for best actor & popularity award : this amazing actor has finally his season! He’s getting what he deserved for #JustBetweenLovers .Even if every nominee deserved to win, I can’t ….
…help to be disappointed for #TheRedSleeve cast & god Ji In. I wanted them to get the #BaeksangArtsAwards2022 recognition they deserved for all the joy (& pain) they brought to us. I’m specially disappointed for #LeeSeYoung . Even if I knew she could miss the best actress award.
I really wanted her to have it (don’t misunderstand me: Kim TaeRi nailed it as Hee Do). Because #LeeSeYoung is such a dedicate & passionate actress, I wanted to see that her efforts haven’t betrayed her. For someone who almost quit acting, this award would have been the proof…

#TheRedSleeve challenge : the poem North wind from the book of odes #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo #BaeksangArtsAwards2022 #BaeksangArtsAwards
The book of odes plays a main role in #TheRedSleeve. It’s one of san’s favorite book. He offered it to Deok Im when they went together to the bookstore. She would read the poem during his lockdown and then let the book in his room, despite Yeongjo’s orders #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
The Book of odes (Shih-ching) is the oldest existing collection of Chinese poetry, comprising 305 works dating from the 11th-7th centuries BC, said to have been compiled by Confucius. It has been studied and by scholars in China over two millennia #TheRedSleeve

#TheRedSleeve challenge : peak comedy scene - court ladies maids can be really frightening #BaeksangArtsAwards2022 #Baeksang #BaeksangArtsAwards #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
As i said many times before, what of the best aspects of #TheRedSleeve is the author’s ability to mix comedy & drama genres.
It loosened up the atmosphere when things may become too heavy. #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
In this scene, Deok Im has been gone for a while at the queen’s palace (the number 1 rival of San). Plus San has seen Deok Ro & Deok Im in the middle of the night very close to each of other…So, San, jealous, is pissed off and no court lady maid want to be near him #TheRedSleeve

#TheRedSleeve challenge : *seduction course 101 by royal guard * aka how San is so desperate with Deok Im that he’s asking for the royal guard’s tips #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
One of the (many) strengths of #TheRedSleeve script , is the writer’s hability to mix in the same episod pure comedy with pure tragedy (so we can laugh & cry, except ep17 which was 💯😭).
San being quite desperate after so many refusals from Deok Im, is asking for help from his faithful royal guard’ advice! The royal guard is one of the best character of #TheRedSleeve. It’s an invented character that brings humor & lightness to the story

It’s an historical fact that JeongJo was an excellent archer (one of the best archer of Joseon along with king Taejo, the general who founded the dynasty) #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
When Deok Im confessed to her friends that the man she loves is neither a scholar or a warrior, it’s rather true & false at the same time. True bc San was the crown prince, false as he had both exceptional intellectual & physical abilities #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
