  1. dr25 added a post in a topic [Drama 2007] Time Of Dog And Wolf 개와 늑대의 시간   

    @ecs707a ! First post in project Time of Dog and Wolf Ahh I can't wait to hear what you think of this one. I'm done watching all 16 episodes. I'm also through commenting on the whole thing. Did so within the span of a week. The drama is that addictive. I'd watch an episode then comment on it in a word document immediately. You'll notice therefore that my thoughts are closer to being raw/ fresh than refined or overthought. The drama gave something to think over every now and then so there's that too. Unlike our other project, there shall be no delay with any of the episodes as all I have to do is photoshop the screen captures, if any, upload them, then go over the commentary one last time before posting. Yush! Here we go!
     

     
    Episode 1
    [Marathon Spree Day 1]
    The opening scene shows Lee Sohyun (Lee JoonKi) falling off the edge of a bay after a car chase *GASPS!*.
    I couldn’t wait for the mother to die. She didn’t give me any reason to hate her but the good mother figure she was made to represent says she has to go as a necessary sacrifice for us to get going with the story. That made her a walking cliché in my book. Almost bored me to death. Her death scene was the peak of the events. The actual act of killing her didn’t bring me to sympathize as did her son’s reaction after she was killed. It’s natural to try protecting your loved ones but her Lee Soo Hyun tried protecting her dead body cuz that’s all he could protect. Ouch!

    There was a Gaksital moment. The show…masks… shooting…dancing. The moment I saw the masks, I was like, “Thank God someone is gonna kill her and get us over with”.  I love how the gangster didn’t have the heart to kill his daughter’s friend. Makes me wonder if even mercy is a privilege someone in his position isn’t meant to afford. Because it’s that child he spared who’s gonna put his future well-being in danger.
     
    I hate KDrama’s childhood love stories. Ari—aa…she took the lil man’s heart with her after that kiss on the cheek . Why put him thru the misery of a broken heart? You could’ve said your goodbyes without it. Poor thing. Now he’s gonna think of you as his first love. I’m putting up with this nuisance anyhow since it’s a fairly old drama.
     
    Never been to Thailand nor have I watched any Tai content to know better but the production in Thailand seems to have been done though the eyes of Korean tourists. Whenever I read  about Thailand in tourism brochures. There are paragraphs on:
    traditional dancing,

    festivals,

    temples,

    greenery,


    and of course the hot weather that gives its people their unique tanned skin contrary to their…let’s say Korean, Japanese Asian parallels.

    See all that sweat?
    List of Clichés I couldn’t help noticing.
    1- Tow black cases with suspicious content.
    2- A female cop I can’t take seriously.
    3- A blonde-haired gangster.
    4- Cheater driver/friend from King of Baking being cheater/colleague here. Ha.
     
     
    Episode 2
    [Marathon Spree Day 2]


    Upon debating which scap to choose as a header. The runway walk won + a close up.
    Eeeek!! Lee Joon Ki  is eye-blindingly h.o.t! Darn it! I don’t want him to become an undercover gangster. That’ll ruin his perfectly-gelled hair.  I was expecting some weird old times styling but nooo he looks as hot as ever. Even better than his style in Two Weeks and Ghunman in Joseon.  I’m in for a treat hehe

    Took the words out of my mouth Elder! I was thinking the same thing lol. Brawns and brains…
     
    So the son of late government agent  and late persecutor became an agent himself. While his job dictates his involvement with Asian gangs we still haven’t gotten a clear statement whether he worked all these years to be in that particular sector or if’s his foster father who recommended him to be in the department of International Affairs associated with gangsters.  It could even be the general manager’s doing since he knows whose son is Lee Soohyun. Either way, oppa is set to meet with the gang that killed his mom. I wonder how much he knows about that matter as of this point. He was a kid after all. His foster father might’ve told him stuff but we don’t know for sure yet.
     
    Childhood love reunion.  Fortunately, I love Nam SangMi. Otherwise the cheesiness would’ve been unbearable. They look awesome together despite that, the third-wheel hyung thinks so too.  Speaking of..I’m digging this guy! Jung KyungHo has a recent drama (Fall in Love with Soon-Jung). It’s been on my to-watch list for some time now, seeing him as MG might’ve made it among my next 3 to-watch. He’s the source of joy in the drama. I laughed so hard when he was critiquing the painting in the art exhibit Ari (now JiWoo) was visiting. The drama seems to have gotten its name from that painting which is why I tried to listen attentively to whatever it is he said but I couldn’t take him seriously. LOL. Sadly he’s meant for heart break. Silver lining is.. what do we got from him being the sad second lead? A tender-hearted hyung who’s been acting the bromance dimension. Ever since Soohyun came to Korea Kang Mingi was there for him to make him feel home.
     
    Foreshadowing. One can never be sure with such element but I hope the scene where LSH stood in front of the memorial monument isn’t meant to foreshadow his own death. Stars symbolizing the unknown heroes whom we’re never to hear of because they died working on secret missions. That would be too heavy for my heart to take. I hope not I hope not I hope not.
    Oh my! I didn't notice Mao is the righteous father from Gunman in Joseon XD Most be the blondness effect. I tried my hand at this drama because of the other reunion, that of LJK & NSM and I can't be more glad I did.
    Thank you so much for the best villains article. I would've been of the same opinion as the writer had she giver my Kimura Shunji a slightly better place. He's among my top five villains. About Mao, I'm leaving my final judgment of the characters for my post commenting on Ep 16 as there's a lot to say about his relationship with everyone around him but details aside, I second you. He was a pillar to the story because he balanced tow opposite ends so well.
