have you watched Sungkyunkwan Scandal Serial? Yeah, it’s the most interesting serial that i’ve watched. it’s actually taken from Novel “Lives of Sungkyunkwan Confucian Scholars”. Because i’m still curious about this story, i tried to get the origin novel on the Internet. Finally, I got it.
After reading all the novel ( Lives of Sungkyunkwan Confucian Scholars is the part one), i realized that there were so many differences between the scene in the serial and the story in the novel. However, i agreed with the filmmaker who made some good change. Because you will find porn stories in the origin novel.
However, there were several stories that i thought it was interesting if it would be included in the serial. Besides that, the serial just covered the story part one. Moreover, the ending seemed too fast. Whereas, Sunjoon knew who the Kim Hyoon Shik was, in the ending episode 17 (there are 20 episode in this serial).
Many netizens have also left many messages online to express their high hopes: “It’s such a waste if there’s neither an extended version nor a special version!” “You have to fine a sequel, you can’t just end like that~” and “If there’s a sequel, I want to Jalgeum Quartet to act in it!”
It must be interesting if it would be realized. However, i read the latest news yesterday and found that the filmmaker will not produce the sequel because the second story is not too interesting.
By the way, have you read the novel? i have its english version…..
