Shopping King Louie


Definitely my favorite drama of 2016/17. See Inguk was absolute perfection in his role as Louie. Have Hulu so watch it over and over and .........

Re:


Well, don't think there are many (or any) people left on this Board. Me & Addie are still hanging on. We are about done with a 2nd watch of Bizarre Bunch and decided we'd watch Shopping King Louis next.

This is a really sweet, cute drama with Seo Inguk. He is absolutely adorable in it. It's a short watch (16 episodes) so if anyone happens to check in here and wants to join us, please do.

We'll probably start in early Sept 2018... Hope there's someone else out there that wants to join us.

Note: I got my copy from a seller on eBay. It was $35. I've only skimmed thru the first episode in it but the quality and subs were perfect.

Re:


Shopping King Louis

I watched episode 1.. Sorry I posted so much. Won't do this in future episodes. lol Just wanted to expand on this episode.

Louie is living in France and is apparently super protected, from afar, by his grandmother. He has a devoted butler who pretty much hovers over him to ensure his health and safety. Grandmother had gone to a fortune teller who said she was the cause of her son and his wife dying (her energy was too strong and overpowered them???). So to protect Louie, her beloved grandson from her negative energy, she made sure she raised Louie from afar.

Louie seems extremely lonely. Butler even had followed him around at school, even into the bathroom to protect him at all times. Thus, poor Louie was friendless. So to compensate he took up shopping. He shopped so much that the merchandise spoke to him, letting him know what was most valuable or what it was he needed (like, NOTHING).

It goes back and forth between Louie’s lonely life in France, Granny’s life in Korea and then they bring in Bok Sil, a sweet country girl. She supported (the best she could) her grandmother and brother. Brother must have tired of country life and ran away to Seoul (I think). Granny dies and Bok Sil leaves the country to look for Bok Nam, her brother. With her she brings a $5,000 hunk of Ginseng she had dug up off the mountain. On the train to Seoul an older woman steels Bok Sils bag with all her belongings. All Bok Sil has is the ginseng. She manages to talk the Manager (of Granny’s company) into buying it with a $100 down.

We also got a look at some of the people that work for Goldline, the company that Granny owns. The manager (who bought the ginseng) and some of his staff. The female lead in the office is also the daughter of the man who is CEO of Granny’s company. And he wants that company for himself. Granny has some kind of illness, ends up in the hospital and this CEO is in position to take over the company. Granny lets them know that Louie is on his way home and she plans to leave Louie the company. Oh my, the look on the CEO’s face!!!

Daughter of the CEO has her eye on Louie and expects she'll be marrying him.

note: They never explain what the relationship is between the CEO and his wife, to Granny. I never found out. They both call her mother but neither is blood related. I believe CEO has worked for her for many years and just assumed he would be next in line since it’s common knowledge that Louie knows nothing about the business and he’s the butt of jokes because all he does is shop.

Re: Shopping King Louie


Hey all !

I am back and I watched episode

1

OMG !! IS that Gram ??? LOL . I watched episode one , and I have to say that I always spend the first episode trying to figure out who is who . There are at least 3 threads os story which I think will intertwine but it is just the beginning . I will be honest , I was rather confused by the end . I am going to hang in there and I know it will clear up .

In the meantime , I have only seen the lead actor once , but I really liked him in the other role .

This looks to be a good one !

Re:


Episode 2

So much happened in this episode. We know Louie somehow was in an accident but survived and now has amnesia. He was found by Bok Sil, who is in Seoul looking for her runaway brother. She sees Louie on the steps and believes his jacket/pants are her brothers. They are because the pants have the sticking she put in her brothers pants. A trip to the police station doesn't give much in the way of answers. I wonder why the police didn't suggest Louie going to the hospital. Or check if missing persons report.

Louie is afraid, and really hanging on to Bok Shil because he has no one else in the world. Guess Bok Sil is alone too.

Louie gets beaten by 3 high school girls and when Bok Sil tried to help she also gets beat up, and robbed.

Had to laugh at them at the sauna. After Louie gets cleaned up Bok Sil thinks he looks pretty good. lol (I did too)

CEO of the company is hoping the company will be handed over to him after Louie's 'death'. His daughter was so distraught at the service, crying at his grave and later at home she talks to her mom and realizes the company will probably eventually go to her. She always wanted to marry Louie so she could be the wife of the company owner. Now it's better for her. She'll own it all on her own one day.. lol She's a pretty sneaky manipulating girl!

I had to laugh several times at Louie. First when he was kicked out of the company. Then when he was sleeping in the bathroom stall. and again when he was having a good time at the sauna. And then when he was smelling the coffee from the two girls who work at the company.

It's pretty clear that Louie is extremely sheltered and naive and I guess Bok Sil is the same. She grew up on the mountain so doesn't know how it is in the big city. Both are very fragile..

Bok Sill and Louie do get a room. Not bad. I'd live in one of those rooftop rooms. I think we all (on the Board) have said the same. I don't need much and the views are great. emoticon

Ends with Bok Sil finally seeing the Manager at the company... The manager who had her ginseng. Oh, was that a lot of nerve of his parents selling that without asking first? WOW....

So cute...

Re: Shopping King Louie


2

I started to watch Episode 2 on Viki and I got about halfway through it . It seems to be a long ep , and
I will finish it this weekend .

I saw the apparent accident that Louis is in during the opening credits of this episode . I have to admit I was so shocked by it that I jumped and almost choked on my Coke Zero . It was an horrific scene and I am almost not believing that anyone could survive .

It was heartbreaking to see the grief of the family at his apparent loss , and I recognize the uncle who plays the one who really wants to be in charge of the company - he was the bad in "Resurrection " and though I haven't seen him in a long , I have never forgotten his face .

It is unbelievable how sheltered Louis was as his family tried to protect him from ?????? That is part of what makes his story on the street interesting ...he is as innocent as a baby and doesn't ( despite his apparent amnesia ) know how real life works . He is almost like a "bubble boy ".

I will get back to this as soon as I can

Re: Shopping King Louie


lol Bubble Boy. That's pretty accurate. He was sheltered to the point of absurdity by grandma.
