@valsava: I so agree with you ,I was think does she do anything to raise her daughter and take some of the burden off of her sister. Mrs Cop is not the single mother her sister is. It made me so angry when the sister failed her exam and and she found her at the grave, what came out her mouth was to make her feel better in what dimension? I think the serial killer either has another girl or he knows that Kang's guy killed that man that we have not seen them find the body of in fact he might have filmed it. What would be funny is if he kill's Kang's son while they are in jail and take his place, and then start hunting Kang the way he did the girls. Something's in life are just clear even without proof, the kidnapping of Kang should have sent off alarm bells that even a rookie cop should have made the connection to Mrs. Cop fathers death. @viyra: They made it clear in episode 10 that Kang killed Mrs Cop dad and the guy who went to jail for it agreed to go to jail for money to pay for his daughter's operation to save her life. Kang and the other guy in the warehouse did not pay for the surgery and his daughter died even before the trial was over and for 20 years he kept quiet. Every time I comment about this drama that rookie does something so dumb that she tick's me off, that thing with the key chain was so thoughtless and inconsiderate that if he had smacked her one I would have clapped with glee and this is from someone who detest the idea of men abusing women. I cringe at the idea that they will make them a couple, I would weather see him with Mrs. Cop sister and they have never met.
As most pointed out yesterday that NR is not going to die and I agree with that, but hasn't she taken the new a little to easily. I also agree that this dumb the way they are having the students react I myself went back to school at 38 and it was just the opposite most wanted to know why I was there. We ate lunch together sometimes went for a drink, that's not to say they treated me as one of gang we were comfortable with each other. The thing with NR is I'm not sure what it is she wants, if her husband wants to go why not let him, I don't really see anything coming from her that even suggest that she cares that he wants a divorce. Or if she is not going to leave I would like to see her start giving him some of the same treatment, stop cooking, don't take care of his laundry or do any of the wifely duties and when he ask why give him the same answer he gave her about his job, we will be divorced so that will make us strangers do I need to cook and clean for a stranger? When she starts to fit in and her and HS renew their friendship that's when it will get really funny, because NR husband strikes me as the type who will try everything is his power to keep her if he thinks someone else wants her and that she could care less about who he wants to be with. That marriage and family teacher is going to have a rude awakening. It's time for NR to put on her big girl panties and show that awful husband and son what she is made of.
I am being so preachy today for some reason and also find myself siding with the men today. The son is just what the mother made him to be his payback comes from the rich friends he has that will be a constant reminder of what he is. With hope this will make him realize how good his sister is and then show his family a man they can be proud of. This drama will be about how the female lead comes to understand why her mother treats her the way she does because I just have a feeling that this abuse will turn out to be tough love, and the mothers way of preparing her daughter to meet all the rough challenges in life she will have to face.The problem if that is the case then the two son's could benefit greatly by the lessons as well. I hope the mothers learn the damage and hurt they cause the daughter and some how make her feel the love not just the hurt. In this kind of drama all the women need to grow and come to understand each other and make better men out of their son's not just teach their daughter to take crap and persevere. All the mother has one for her son is make him feel entitled, his rich friend fired him so that he would grovel and beg for his job back, instead he decides he should have his own practice and wants his mother to get the money for him, forget the fact that the whole family is about to lose their only source of income if the sister moves out. If he thinks he so good why did the thought of getting a job at one of the large law office's and saving his own money to go into practice not occur to him. Instead he goes out each morning hanging out doing nothing while hiding the fact he has no job.
Really liked the first episode and it would be to easy to just blame everything on the husband and son, we don't know how any of them turned out this way, but I did gather that the husbands wants a divorce but she would not agree, there was mentioning of him over the years wanting her to go to collage and she never did . Maybe he just out grew her and she was unwilling to change. Even now isn't there an agreement that she would go to school and if she didn't she would give him a divorce, that's why he was so shocked when she told them that she had gotten in. The husband was thinking the divorce would be a done deal because over the years she had not once tried going back to school like he wanted her to. The son is just a typical youth who wants his independence, yet the mother still wants to cling to him like he is a child their attitude and treatment of her is reflective of their own desires which she does not acknowledge. Subservience can be a weapon and it does not always mean that the person has low self esteem. Can we all say Uriah Heep. Most people have been mean to someone we want to just leave us alone but they won't go away no matter what you say or do to them. We know that HNR was a strong person but who she is now may because she thought this is what she had to be to become to be a good mother and wife, I think this drama will be about her own self discover and getting her self back. To understand that just like her husband and son she has choices about how she should live. The husband and son will then be the ones with fear of losing her and the discovery that she played a more important part in their lives than they realized. Since this growth and discovery will be done in a funny way I can't wait.
I love a good romance like everyone here does but we have reached the half way mark and it's time for the action, TH and YJ are not strong enough alone for the up coming battle. They should team up with CY and Cynthia because they are also alligator's. He can use the gangsters for protection and muscle. They may also be able to get DJ Secretary to join them since the talk has turned to getting rid of everyone that know about what happened because he would be a fool to believe that he is safe.President Go does not strike me as a man who wants to share the power so DJ better stay on his toes because he might just be getting set up to be the fall guy for all the deaths. The head surgeon for the 12th floor seems to be headed for a break down , maybe they can let him be the fall guy for YP, so that they can shut the detective down because that part of the story is just dumb, are we to believe that the only thing he can arrest gangster's for is fighting, if that's the case he is not much of a detective. YJ will be in the fight of his life just to stay ahead of the alligator's so this cop chasing him instead of real criminals seems to be a little over the top, unless by being arrested by the police saves his life at some point. Anyway I'm ready for the alligator war to begin.
This weeks episodes was a vast improvement but that rookie girl cop still annoys me. I find it interesting that not only are the police after the bad guys but the bad guys have other bad guys after them.I also found it interesting that they found the body of the girl the serial killer killed but not the one the chairman's secretary killed. especially since the cop's was following the man that ended up dead. I thought the scene were the two mothers were begging Mrs.cop to find their daughters after the news broke about the serial killer a bit strange, because if it was that easy to find runaway's they wouldn't be missing in the first place. @doctster6: I live in Chicago and they made the sell of spray pain illegal several years ago so when I need spray paint I have to either go to the suburbs or buy it online.
After the first four episodes I was still not sure I would watch this but then 5 and 6 came along and boy what a difference. I will go on record saying that I found the newbie female detective very annoying. I haven't really formed any opinions about where I think things are headed, but if I was the head bad guy I would be glad that the idiot son was in jail.
Two of the best dramas I have watched ended, this and my Beautiful Bride. I'm in search of a new one, I have my eye of Yong-pal and Mrs.Cop. I have enjoyed being here in this thread with everyone who's comments thoughts, and insights kept me going until the next episode. Hope to have the pleasure of your company again .
I really loved this drama over all, I like most thought that TG stabbing DH was a little over the top, because in truth he had no reason to think or believe that DH knew that it was MS that had died and not JY. But say it's true that DH knew would that really have lessen his anger against the shadow? Would he not want to punish them instead of DH? By the way what happen to secretary Kim, last seen going to JG office?
Anyway I have enjoyed my time here in this tread, thanks for the insightful and some time amusing comments.
This has got to be the best drama I have watched this year since Kill Me Heal Me. That little snot rag that was the chairman assistant was so obvious all throught the drama so I didn't understand why the chairman didn't see it. TJ stabbing DH was quite the shock, I am assuming that the snot rag told him they killed MS and passed her off as JH, but even so how would DH be responsible for that. It couldn't be he was pissed that DH might have a happy ending when the fact is the took his woman because of how he lived his life. Be back for final comments once I see it subbed.
I had stopped watching this after ep#6 because it bothered me that SA had control over BS body and BS had no knowledge of what was going on, I also found i strange that a ghost that has no memory of how they died thinks that getting laid is the reason they are still here. How could you not have an interest in how you died.In fact she had no interest in her own life at all, It was only after seeing her father while in BS body that she gave them a thought at all. Now she thinks she is in love with SW but the truth is from the first kiss when she stepped out she understood that his feelings was for BS and not her. This made her jealous because she felt that she was doing all the work and BS was getting the benefit. In truth could her grudge really be just to have sex when she is a victim of murder? I also think SW knows the difference between the two and the one he loves is BS, it is not SA that he is drawn to, because of SA antics he took her to the Dr. and her diagnosis made him accepting of SA while it allowed him to see BS. PD Lee is so typical of the drama spurned lover, when he was liking her and being her lacky and lap dog sh had no romantic interest in him the moment he moved on here she come's wanting to be in love. Her nose is all out of joint because she thinks she is better than BS not realizing that it's the person and how they treat you not someone's status that makes you love them. Now that I've watched up to ep#10 one of the things that seems odd to me is why can't SA see the evil spirit that is inside of SJ? Not only does she not see it she doesn't even feel it's presence. Also don't evil entities usually have a purpose too, they usually have a grudge that needs settling. These are just my random thoughts after catching up on the missed episodes now I'm off to watch this weeks,things will have to move pretty fast with only 4 episodes left.
I think that in Gloria and Gap Dong it was pointed out that the statute of limitations in S. Korea is 25 years the exception is if you leave the country the clock stops and restarts when you return. I did look this up on the internet after your question and found an article dated July 2015 that said S,Korea has removed the statute. So I guess I have to correct myself and if they have evidence they can get him.
I have been thinking about this drama quite a bit and that's whats so great about it. It has made us see all sides of the people involved. I did however conclude that it would be really hard for LJY and Min to be bought to justice because do the police even know of any crimes to charge them with? Min killed the old prosecutor but his body is out at sea.In the abandonment case I thought the rich guy was the killer and Min just orchestrated it. LJY killed his family and maybe JA father and the other guard but we don't know that for sure because there were two other men in the escape, the driver of the ambulance and the guy pretending to be the medic. Also that would make team leader's dad an accomplice as well as the female director. He killed the gangsta but is there any evidence that he did the killing. I guess my point is that most of the murder's attributed to LJY except for the gangster is so old that the statue of limitations would apply so he couldn't be prosecuted for them. Even in the case of the jail break as was pointed out to me he was only being charged on a minor crime plus he had not been to court yet on those charges so he had never been sentenced. Short of Min and LJY confessing do the police even have anything they can even bring them in for questioning. JA does not know that her father on two separate occasions tried to beat LJY and that's what led to him becoming a victim. If they are to be punished they will either have to confess or die, but maybe it's not about their punishment but about all of them coming to understand how people like them came to be.
This drama was a disappointment from start to finish, each week I kept praying that it would live up to my expectations even just a little, did wonder what it was that bothered me so about this and finally in episode 15 I understood what was wrong for me. The group was not believable. Would a country really leave a terrorist attack of this magnitude to a rag tag group of five policemen one of which doesn't do field work. Wouldn't this really be a job for the national security services? I guess that was the problem for me. If such a unit was formed they should have mad skills.
