I have no plans of watching Faith but a very good friend keeps telling me about it (the same friend who influenced me into watching Arang and the Magistrate too). I actually just fell in love with one of the soundtracks first, 그대니까, and eventually got curious about the drama.
At first I have confused Faith with Time Slip Dr. Jin. Gah! Why so many time-warps dramas? And later realized it was a different drama. And I’m loving the story so much.
Last night I was watching Episode 4 and I’m simple amazed with Princess Noh Gook and her fluency to Goryeo Language (Korean). Princess Noh Gook is a Yuan Princess, thus speaks Chinese (Yuan language? I don’t know). However she is very fluent in Korean (then Goryeo) that the King himself initially thought she is a Korean (from Goryeo country). Warrior Choi Young asked her when did she learn Korean since she only married their King for 2 years and she is already very fluent.
최영: 먼저 한 가지 여쭤도 되겠습니까? 고려말은 언제 배우셨습니까?
노국공주: 8년이다. 8년 전 한 사람을 보았다. 고려사람이었다. 그에게 말을 건네보려고 말을 배우기 시작했다.
Choi Young: But first, can I ask you something? When did you learn Goryeo language.
Princess Noh Gook: It’s been 8 years. 8 years ago I met someone. Someone from Goryeo. I started learning the language in order to communicate with him.
Awww, that was sweet! Learning a language to be able to communicate with someone she likes/loves. Although technically I started learning Korean just to be able to register to Kim Sun Ah’s fancafe, I continued learning because I also want to communicate with people – my Sunaforever family (including Kim Sun Ah herself). And as years go by, I met more and more
Korean (not just Koreans) people that I want to communicate well in Korean.
8 years! So I still have 2-3 more years to, hopefully, reach Princess Noh Gook’s fluency? Hahaha.
