  1. My Beautiful Bride has great flashback sequences accompanied with solid music composition. OCN's other shows like Life in Mars, the director does a superb job/keen eyes for flashback/dream-like sequences that serves as a metaphorical symbolism for the lead character's state of mind. The directing for Kill It is fair but for an action/thriller, it doesn't have the grit/intensity of BadGuys 1&2/MBB in terms of fight choreography/cinematography. But then again, there's only 2 episodes out. It seems the director is from the same department that directed 100 days My Prince? Things I've noticed about SH as an assassin so far is that he appears/cuts into places too seamlessly. The process of him conducting himself for a task/hit(ex:getting ready, retrieving weapons/tools, infiltrating whereabouts, investigating, analyzing) needs a bit more depth/detail. He lacks a sense of flair. The same thing can be said about the detective/ procedural part for Hyun Jin's character.
  2. There's definitely romance here and there in some OCN dramas. The thing is Soohyun is a assassin/killer. I prefer Soohyun and Hyun Jin as platonic pair who confides in/help one another.
  3. I dont think there will be any romance. More like a close platonic relationship that's built on trust/friendship/angst? Although I could be wrong. Most OCN dramas with this genre usually never allude to any romance between leads. By the way, the actress is Nana. She's from an idol group Afterschool who venture into acting a few years ago. Yes, she's indeed really beautiful.
  4. Just finished ep 2. The dialogue here fairs much better, although majority of the things happening feels like heavy exposition. Not much action/movement sequence happening with the characters. The physical fight sequence is decent but with really odd camera angles/editing. Falls short on impact. The episode here did a better job fleshing out Hyun Jin. I was worried there wasn't going to be any prominent female character interaction so it's nice to see scenes between Seul Gi and Hyun Jin talking/bantering especially since Hyun Jin can relate to Seul Ki on a personal level. From what I can conclude, Hyun Jin was an orphan adopted by her current parents to live a false life? She's loosely tied to Soohyun somehow as a child before. The unknown client lady is her father's assistance. Is it weird that Hyun Jin hasnt realized that Seul Gi is the little girl connected to Hyuk's death, unless her name was changed/adopted by the deceased grandpa after that incident? HJ did a background check and nothing about that came up. SH/HJ's quiet interactions/small talks is nice. I dont think they properly introduced themselves to eachother? Nana and KY are doing a fair job. The chemistry is there but the writing just needs a bit of spark/depth in characterization/interaction. The odd cuts for this episode really stunts the flow along with pacing issues. The detective/procedural aspect of the drama is not engaging as other OCN's shows. Its probably the drier/weaker part of the show. The villian/Kamirov is really uninteresting /bland. With two episode so far, the show still lacks tension/energy. The atmosphere/tone isnt quite there for a drama that position itself as a action/thriller.
  5. Anticipated for this OCN drama since last month. My overall impression of the first episode is it is somewhat underwhelming. In terms of characterization, writing, music, acting, and overall directing of the first episode, it doesnt have quite the finesse as OCN's slicker shows like Bad Guys or even My Beautiful Bride. Although MBB suffers from it's prolongue/dragged out 16ep length, hopefully OCN returns with more shorter length dramas with 12ep like Killit. The writing/characterization isnt as polished/tight. Pavel and Soohyun's relationship/interaction isnt established with enough depth, so Pavel's death doesnt really hit any emotional core. Soohyun's characterization follows a typical trope of stoic mannerism partially due to his upbringing/hitman occupation. I really like the idea of an assassin living a dual life but the writing/execution here is not exciting as it can be to allow Soohyun be more interesting, like fluctuating personalities to embody that dual life persona. The story arc that's set up for his character is somewhat dull, with the memory wiped/kill target for unknown lady client without question? The execution of the first onscreen kill was uninspiring. Unnecessary rope drag when all he had to do was kick the target from the behind.Taking hints of Hollywood's usual fashion, the explosions and guns/snipers feels a bit gimmicky in the first half. The action sequence isnt too bad. There's some fast paced shots that's really good, although there is some odd editing. Hyun Jin seems to be the counterpart/opponent to Soohyun. She's the level headed and intuitive detective. Seul Ki is definitely a key aspect of the story. The Red Mafia is bland/cartoony, mostly because the actors for the villains is offputting. The cast's acting as a whole is alright. Nothing too notable. Cant recall any memorable music composition in the background. The pacing is rather decent, not enough energy. Things happen too seamlessly. There's alot of mystery to the story.
  6. I'm so excited to see her as Su Tang in the drama. These are really lovely shots of her.
  7. Alright. Thanks. I'm definitely okay with both CFY & DE's character being platonically tied to each other. I think it will allow for both of them to develop if the writer handles them well. I also think because of the age difference, the director does not want any romance between CFY & DE 's character.
  8. DE has a natural aura that's appealing. I'm not familiar w/ the book but what's her relationship w/CFY in story? From the bts, I saw him piggyback her. I think CFY's character was chained. Are they former slaves? DE is so tiny. It's funny that she had to stand on blocks. I think there was a bts/scene where she & CFY had to fight and she stood on a block so they could film her to be taller. She made this cute fierce stance like she's ready to kick butts. It was adorable.
  9. I hope they both interact w/eachother & become friends/aquintances. What's CX role? She doesnt seem to wear a uniform similar to the others? DE and CFY wore a similar outfit. Must be a school attire?
  10. I was so suprised. She's a literal baby. She indeed has a very natural appeal. Cheng Xiao has a cool/haughty vibe. She seems like a character who's going to butt heads w/ CFY.
  11. Ok. Thanks. I assume it would be around that time or later. Post production takes a while. I'm excited to see the end product. Really? Cool.
  12. I heard that this just wrapped up filming recently. CFY looks so much older/mature here. Suprising, he looks good here too, even with the odd wig. I dont know much about the sypnosis of this drama other than 4 leads who goes to a fighting academy. They all look great. Is there an air date for this?
  13. Thanks & Youre welcome. Right back at you. Second thread I follow & really enjoyed interacting w/everyone here. A fun bunch. I still have so much thoughts about TSoML. I finished the drama just today. I've been trying to avoid the thread because of spoilers but now I'm all caught up/done.
  14. I finally finished the drama. There's so much to unpack.The longest drama I'd ever watched & I'm quite satisfied with it. All in all I really enjoyed the show, especially seeing how both ML & TY's development & growth unfolds from the beginning to the end, along w/ their relationship/interaction w everyone else. As for the last episode, it was a solid conclusion. My only gripe is how Empress Dowager didnt serve time/exiled for her action/set of events leading up to the rebellion/end when she was mostly responsible for. The most ingrate of them all along w/ Molan.
  15. I have not finished the drama yet but does TsoML have 73 episodes or 79? Currently on Viki it is listed for 73. Is there extended episodes or is 73 the last episode?
  16. Probably my fav scenes/interactions between these two. Such cuties. It's so intimate. SYR/CFY have such natural chemistry/energy together here.
  17. Does anyone know where I can listen to the music score with the music only. Not the soundtrack w/songs. TSoML ends this week or next week? I'm not quite sure. I still have a handful of episodes to catch up to & want to avoid spoilers. It's been such a great run.
  18. It's super awesome. That's really cool. The music score has alot of memorable pieces. They definitely put alot of thought into this. It's probably one of my favorite music score from any drama I've seen.
  19. Thank you so much. I've been meaning to find/listen to it. The music score is probably the best score I've heard in a drama. It's so majestic & memorable.
  20. Does anyone know where I can listen to the music score? Not the original soundtrack with the songs but the music pieces.
  21. Ep.64 was really good. Grandma's awake & TY's back. I almost forgot he was in the show for a bit. CB is such a good son. I really like how the characters matured. Well maybe not all of them but I love the progression. Im so happy grandma's okay. ML&TY together again, the dynamic duo is just too good. I love these cuties. Those pecking/kisses at the end .
  22. A little a bit of both, although the women are well written/multifaceted much moreso than the men in TSoML. The writing for the men has been either alright or somewhat underwhelming, but I do very much love TY as a character. The great thing about TSoML is that it puts women at the forefront in storytelling/narrative & continues to keep the show engaging. Even the most prickly characters are quite enjoyable to watch.
