I’ve been meaning to start my Chuno rewatch for a while! I’m so excited but also very busy these days. I have no idea how long this rewatch will take me, judging from my Thank You one which lasted around 7 months! Rewatching while doing captures and gifs is rewarding (Jang Hyuk in full close up and slow motion, is very rewarding) but also time consuming. And you know, Chuno is special to me. I know I’ll get so absorbed that I’m almost afraid to start!
This time around, I intend to pay attention to the whole story. So far, to me Chuno has been Daegil and friends, Daegil and his love (with all due respect to lovely Lee Da Hae and fans), Daegil and his rival (with all due respect to gorgeous Oh Ji Ho and fans, but you know me! biased!). Yes, once again I admit my utter lack of objectivity (with all due respect to the whole amazing cast, director, writer, etc etc etc). So don’t be surprised or disappointed if my captures and gifs are mostly Daegil, friends, love and rival, but,I will try! As usual, I’ll follow my heart on this rewatch. I don’t know what kind of posts will emerge as I’m going in without a plan or schedule. But now that I have you to share the experience and memories, it should be 100000 x more fun!
I also don’t know how smart it is of me to watch Daegil now when Lee Gun (Fated to Love You) and Mimi (Lee Gun’s hair) are just around the corner! Going from Chuno to Fated to Love You will be quite a contrast :p For my Thank You rewatch I stocked up on choco pies. What should I get for Chuno?
Maybe some rice wine? I shall need it to endure THE PAIN!!!!!! (The wonderfully delicious pain in this case, such a masoquist)
Or some boiled eggs? lol
Fear not! I promise not to cry while I eat them, or at least I won’t film myself and show you!
Here are some awesome b/w drawing like images from the opening!
Another great Chuno review by kjtamuser from the Amusings blog
Chuno is a sweeping drama that weaves timeless issues throughout – friendship, love, loyalty, human dignity, good versus evil, during a time where slaves were crucial to life but considered the lowest rung of society. Slaves ran away from cruel conditions and Slave Hunters were employed to bring them back.
The pivotal role of slave hunter Lee Dae-gil is played to perfection by Jang Hyuk. His comrades, General Choi (Han Jung-soo) and Wang-son (Kim Ji-seok), acting as muscle and maid respectively, form a family.
Dae-gil is haunted by his first love, former slave, Un-nyun (Lee Da-hae), who escaped with her brother 10 years ago when Dae-gil’s family home was burned to the ground, to which Dae-gil was the lone survivor.
Song Tae-ha (Oh Ji-ho) crosses paths with Dae-gil multiple times during the series and is a key to Dae-gil’s first love, Un-nyun, story. Tae-ha is a military general for…

Originally written in Korean, so it’s not really gonna be poetic or anything…but just to share the feelings in it. Well, more because DramaFan forced me to share it 😛 And I’m going to die from embarrassment as soon as I post this.
For the first time in forever, I saw his back.
He used to say he doesn’t like that I keep hiding,
but I actually enjoyed peeking at his back as I’m hiding.
His back was not wide
but was always dreaming.
Under the suffocating wide sky, his back standing straight,
allowed me to dream as well.
His back, unlike his eyes, did not convey any word
thus it never said “no.”
No, he would never say “no” to me,
but it didn’t force me to say “no” to him instead.
I just enjoyed looking at his back.
He, who used to allow his back only to me,
now only allows his back to me.
My heart which used to flutter at the thought he might look back,
is now doing so more out of fear than excitement.
he allows me his back in my dream,
and I thank him for that.
No words can express how much I love this Chuno review by Zhaoul from kdramadreamer
Welcome to the world of Chuno (The Slave Hunters). It’s a world that you enter into rather than just sitting and watching a drama. You get engrossed in their world. It’s a painful world, full of disappointment and anguish. Not an ideal world. A world where everything can change at the drop of a hat. One minute noble, next minute slave – One minute slave, next minute noble, then boom! Dead. Noble to slave hunter – Happiness to sorrow. This is a cruel world, but my heart was captured by it. It was captured in a way that I could imagine myself a part of this world, as cruel as it is. It’s not often that a drama truly haunts me afterwards – Where the remnant memories of what I witness follow me and truly affect me. Truthfully, my heart was captured by Dae-gil, the Slave Hunter. The beauty and pain…

Amazing review of this underrated gem of a drama 😊👏❤️
Look at this man. I mean, really look at him.
Now, imagine this; So you meet this man. He looks at you gently and smiles. What do you do? There he is, talking to you softly, making you feel special. He’s attractive, charming with a good job. He’s interested in you. He thinks you are beautiful. You go on several dates with this man. He tells you that you remind him of his older sister who passed away some time ago. He wants to protect you the way he was unable to protect his sister.
You can’t help but gaze into his eyes and admire his beautifully chiseled face. You are both getting closer. You trust him. Why wouldn’t you trust him? He’s honest, caring and very respectful. He kisses you softly and your heart melts…. Meeeeelting…!
Now guess what? He’s a jerk! Wait, no. Jerk is too gentle. He’s a womanizer…
