    Does anyone know if there's a drama wrap party? Yoo Ah In and Go Kyung Pyo have both barely posted anything related to the drama since the start =___=

    AHh what a ride.. eps 13 and 14. I think Seju will survive, but I think he'll maybe use telekinetic powers to stop him from falling. I think by protecting Seju, Jin oh sees his buddy for the last time and then (perishes?). I'm really curious as to how he was stuck in the typewriter. I think in the 1930's, Taemin's men did make it back in time to see the Joseon Alliance on stage, and there was some sort of a massive gun fight. I think that Hwi Young died in battle, perhaps sacrificing himself for Jin Oh. A drama like this.. as of right now, it makes more sense if by the end it is the Seju-Seol pairing that lives with the weight on their shoulders knowing their past and their best friend Jin Oh. But I hope Jin Oh disappears knowing what happened, and the novel isn't published simply in his honor but he was part of it until the very end. I hope he finds closure- that was what he wanted. P.S. Some more thoughts: I feel like the beginning of the drama (after eps 1-2) it was a bit slow, but now I feel like 2 episodes won't sum everything up I hate the stalker siblings, they've been useful in drumming up plot devices to insert Seol as Seju's protector, and now Jin Oh as Seju's protector, but couldn't that be done with something else but stalker siblings? I'm not sure if this whole-- I save you, you then save me in the present is a complete copy of the past, or if its a reflection as in if Hwi Young saved Jin Oh in the past, Jin Oh saves Hwi Young in the present.

    I just finished watching this week's episodes.. I never really bought into Hwi Young as the person that died in that way amongst the three-- just because that's not very interesting? And also because it's a game of: what's unlike the rest? For Jin Oh to not get a new life, it means somehow the three of them were on the same path of fighting for their home country, and then 2 may have died fighting for their noble cause, while 1 .. did something else... I've toyed with the possibility that they may have committed suicide to avoid getting tortured for information but that's pretty bleak for prime time tv.. RIght now I'm also thinking of Jin Oh assuming (real or under pretense) the role of the leader of their youth alliance. As in if Hwi Young died, then the pocket watch and typewriter went to Jin Oh. Or when people come to capture the dude with the typewriter who writes codes in the newspapers (that's all we've ever seen Hwi Young as in the past, either with his typewriter or with his friends), it's Jin Oh who has that role and gets shot. It has to be more than him not letting go of the past and living in the typewriter, maybe something he needed to pass on to his friends who were no longer around or he wasn't around to do so. I think certain unforeseen things that blur the lines could have happened through manipulation or pretense for the greater good.. but I'm not sure why-- but I don't think any one of the three betrayed the rest. As for the next few episodes... the preview has Se Joo spying on Jin Oh in the past talking to Tae Min. It seems we're heading towards the direction of (misled or not) Jin Oh as a traitor or double agent. Not too sure about this though. I don't see Tae Min as THE VILLAIN. I can't take him in the present that seriously, and I think now that the stalker sister wants to mess with Seol, I think Tae Min will step in. Just working on a hunch, but I think this is the lifetime he redeems himself (I really hope I'm right, not for his sake but for us as the viewers- he's super annoying). Jin Oh not remembering his last moments does make everything fuzzy and throws our theories out the window. He is keeping in the dark that he can call out people's previous names to get them to see him, and did not tell Se Joo that he stole the first draft of Fate. Which directly sent Tae Min on a rampage. I'm sensing a very dumb yet noble troublemaker past and present.

    wow- this is spot on, I agree with everything you just said. He is definitely acting like the "hyung" of the group, the leader, the most generous, the most understanding, the one that acts the oldest and beyond his own age. That said, all those kinds of characters have the same ending no? I like YJ has a really good intuition and hunch about everything in SJ's life, despite SJ knowing Tae Min all his adulthood, and taking things as they come when it's too late instead of thinking more intuitively about them. I agree, the messing around with SJ was only possible because how close they must have been before. The romance part is enticing... but I really like their camaraderie the most, I hope Seol does support SJ on a friend level so we jump over the "anti-fan" part of the plot as soon as possible. SJ was a much cooler guy in the past so hopefully what he's missing are YJ and Seol.

    After watching Ep 6, I wanted to share some thoughts with you all: Who else really dislikes Tae Min? It's not that I'm disliking him because he's a villain, but he's a very one note villain, I'm not a fan when writers kind of say -ah screw it just make him a psycho- I like him and his dad as that push into making Se Joo a guarded, untrusty man but I think to make Tae Min a severely-insecure-wannabe-serious-writer-but-has-mommy-and-daddy-issues could've been enough for him to steal "Fate" but adding the cat throwing and hanging out at the vet's place is sooo annoying. I'd rather there be more screentime for the three leads in the present and the past. I think it'd be neat if it was just the 3 of them that had existed in the past, because bringing the shaman in, her daughter, and then maybe even Tae Min is a copout. And also, when Se Joo and Seol see their flashbacks, are they seeing exactly what the audience sees? Because by now, shouldn't all three of them know of the other two's existence? Or when they're reading Chicago Typewriter manuscript they'll put everything together? Even if they don't know the faces, isn't there some sort of a significance? I think part of the reason why Se Joo got reincarnated was for him to finish the novel. And for Seol, probably a punishment for taking a life. But it could also be redemption, and if we really want to get all romantic-- maybe for her to be with the one she loved (i'm only thinking this is se joo cuz he's human lol)

    I think it's interesting to note that the manuscript stated that it was a love story between a writer and an independent activist in Kyungsung, but the writer could be Se Joo or Yoo. In the flashback of them at Carpe Diem, Se Joo's 1930s self asks Yoo when will he write again. So the love story can be Yoo-Seol, or Seol-Se Joo because the "writer" can be either of them. Of course, it was probably a love triangle so both love stories coexisted, but wouldn't Yoo the ghost want to tell his and Seol's love story more, even if it was just love on his part? lol Before the preview for 6 I had thought that the press conference thing would have been well received, since it could be a tongue in cheek, or a sarcastic response to "yes I have a ghostwriter, this is him, he doesn't actually exist." I thought this could've been interpreted as totally badass as getting a chance to play the media, but with the reporter's smug face and his manager's reaction in the preview, it seems people will just want to believe he's crazy. Understandable but boring no?
