    Soompi love feast

    @packmule3 Hello Friend, I've been locked out of my account for months, and busy, so I only just saw your message. Had I known of this post I would have responded in a heartbeat. I'm sure you hit more than two responses. But here is mine. Happy Merry Cheerful Love each and every month.
  2. Just saw Episode 10. I've got to say I'm relishing the firing of Choi Jin-Chul. I hope it is brutal. Enjoying the Secretary/Snail slow romance. As a black person, I'm looking at all the episodes of breaking entering by Jin-Hyeok and I'm like . . .
  3. Here is some random nonsense. A haphazard idea that should not be confused with analysis. Consider the possibility that Jeon Soo-Young is a part of the Red Cry collective, a group of like minded individuals who are anonymous to each other. Consider the possibility that Kang Ji-Hun first impression of JSY was correct, she did kill that man. Consider the fact that for sake of tension the camera focused our attention on KJH yet it was JSY who took the shot without hesitating. One reason to consider it is timing. There is too much time left (three episodes) on the clock for the big bad villain to be neutralized. Consider it, then reject it all. I haven't seen the last two. My internet won't allow me to stream.
  4. trivial observation here. The uniforms for the hotel front desk staff are so gorgeous I want to go work there. Well not work exactly, but wear the uniforms.
  5. Ahhhh. I missed the fact that Jae-Hak is not rich grandmother's biological son. That helps! Thank you. Song-Joo is so uninteresting. Not even her greed nor her coveting what isn't hers is interesting.
  6. I really wanted to get this off my chest. I'm not a fan of Jung Hyo-Sil/Rich Grandma. It gets my goat that she is going on about someone treating HER granddaughter poorly as if she isn't mean and vicious to other people's children. I suspect her treatment of Song-Joo might have contributed to Song-Joo's criminal behavior/ not that it comes anyway near justifying it. From the string of confessions it seem like me a lot of folk here have been less than diligent watchers. I have a few questions about the drama, but I'm not curious enough to watch to find the answers. Questions. 1- What's the story behind Chi-Woo's biological mother? Where is she? Where/how did she go? --Personally I assume she is dead. 2-Why did Chi-Woo and Wan-Seung marry, especially considering how vigorously his mother would have objected. Even if Wan-Seung was head over heels with puppy love, I'd assume that Chi-Woo would have been too level-headed to marry that child-man. 3- Does anyone think that Jin-Woo is Jae-Hak biological son? Or is he his step/adopted son? 4. When did Jae-Hak and Song-Joo relationship start? 5. I assume Jin-Woo is the only "child" not biologically related to Chi-Woo and Jae-Hak. 6. Chi-Woo and Wan-Seung relationship seem almost custodial. Unlike his brother Wan-Seung has kind instinct, but he is feckless, cowardly and IMMATURE!. I suspect his outside ego boost getting pregnant will be the best way to end his relationship with Chi-Woo. Wan-Seung is always useless and incompetent in his relationship with Chi-Woo, and she let's him get away with it, therefore he has nothing to offer. When Wan-Seung is with his ego boost she not only tell his he is great, she makes him feel useful and competent. 7. I dread that the show will resolve the Jeon-Seung by having him reconcile with his child and the child's mother. It is resolution like those which encourage women to stay with men who treat them as if they are disposable that encourages awful relationships. 8. The marriages in this drama are varying degree of awful. a) Boo-Han/Yi-Bok: He has no respect for her (makes total sense) and she is just awful to everyone. b)Jae-Hak/Song-Joo: She is dishonest with with her husband and spend all her time scheming and plotting against his heart's desire. c) Chi-Woo and Wan-Seung: He acts like a feckless teenager and she let him get away with it.
  7. I'm watching because, despite its flaws, this is the best, to my mind, drama running on the weekend. One of the weirdest thing to me is that I have never seen a more boring villain than Song-Joo. Usually in a story of this type the "villain" is the "second lead" when it comes to being interesting, but not here. I find the interconnections intriguing, but I wonder if some of the characters are too old for the storylines they are in. Really looking forward to the uncouplings and parter-reassignment down the line. I hope the writer has some deft moves waiting at the keyboard.
  8. This drama strikes me as a contemporary fairytale complete with wicked stepmothers (who are technically mother and mother-in-law). What I'm finding charming about the story is that except for the wicket stepmothers, everyone behaves as decent human being doing thing that in other dramas could be construed as being against their best interests. The fact that Hey-In is doing what's best for Jin-Hyeok instead of fanning her hopes that she could be his girl is surprising sane. She is not supporting Jin-Hyeok's relationship with Soo-Hyun, she is supporting him. The same can be said about Woo-Seok. He is not supporting Soo-Hyun and Jin-Hyeok, but he is supporting Soo-Hyun, even if that means he ends up without her.
  9. I'm so glad folks are enjoying the show. I'm enjoying the show, but in ways I hadn't anticipated. I came for BoGum but I find that Jang Seung-Jo as Jung Woo-Seok that has me fascinated. While I'm not shipping Woo-Seok with Soo-Hyun, I feel his pain for the lost opportunity for that relationship. If love is an action, he has been loving Soo-Hyun for a while but somehow never was able to let her understand his feelings. I think so far all his interventions, from the divorce on, has been to set Soo-Hyun free, which is what he thinks she wanted. BoGum is lovely as usual. I usually fine with the age differences between adults in drama, so long as the couple seem to have similar emotional ages. Jin-Hyeok's youth is apparent and his lack of world experience is obvious. I'm looking forward to his growth over the course of the drama. It's a familiar story in drama, rich-wounded-closed off enchanted by cute/less financially resourced/optimistic youth. The difference is which gender is the rich/suave city person and who is the "Candy." Usually when Candy is a girl, there is more trauma in the back story.
  10. Man I came here for the theories, cause I have none. Is green dress CWK? Is green dress her twin? Is green dress her younger? older? sister. Was CWK's biological mother abusive? How did CWK's biological mother die? Was CWK's father abusive? Was CWK's step-mother abusive? What's up with CWK's sister being in a vegetative state? Why is that important to the plot? It must be or she wouldn't be that state, or it is bad writing. Why did CWK's sister respond to the drawing of green dress girl? Does CWK have dissociative personality disorder and has incorporated green dress girl into her psyche and every now and then green dress girl uses CWK's body to avenge a wrong? All I got is questions [and papers to grade]. Where are the theories? You have your weaponized truck mixed up. No one survives the White Truck of Doom? and bad mother survived. So it can be White Truck of Doom. It must be his cousin. BTW blood looks cinematic smeared over the windshield and hood of White Trucks of Doom. In other words, "All the better to see them bleed, my dear." THis makes sense to me. Of course the drama suspense is maintained by having everyone seems like a viable suspect. Soon we'll start believing that despite her vegetative state Cha Se-Kyung is the one murdering people. The stepmother isn't warm and fuzzy but CWK isn't afraid of her nor does she find her repellant. Actually she seem to seeks physical contact more often than stepmother is willing to give it. Abuse kids only do that if the abuser runs hot and cold. Stepmom's temperature is consistent. The green dress and the terror are related. The woman offering the green dress is not the stepmother. It is possible that CWK killed her mother to protect herself or her sister. If she did, it would make sense that her father worked very hard to replace those memories with healthier one.
  11. Interesting that while the writer of the article did an insightful piece about the language used in the drama the thing that stood out most to me is the sense that the writer of the drama is subtly preparing the audience for an ending where the couple does not end up together. "I believe it is meaningful when a person lets someone else in his/her heart, even if it's only for a brief moment." I may well be wrong, since I do not speak Korean, but that's where the translation guided my thinking. The article made me think about a nice bit of analysis that was posted after the first week the drama aired comparing it to Roman Holiday. That's a rom-com where the encounter had to be enough because the couple could not end together. I'm hoping that I will be able to enjoy the drama as it unfolds and avoid predictive analysis. This week's episodes have been making me do something I haven't done in quite a while. When I had the time and focus to read novels I'd sometimes come across one where my affection for characters would have me cringe every time they seem to be putting themselves in a situation that would lead a hurt or humiliation. Just before that would happen I'd have to close the book and walk away because I wouldn't bear to be in the presence of their pain. This week I had to take a break from the last 10 minutes of both episodes. Once Jin Hyuk borrowed his hyung's truck and headed out I had to leave the story until the next day when episode 4 was available. On Thursday I had to take an hour break from the story as the Jin Hyuk watch the vultures descend as Soon Hyun was leaving workand I could sense the tension in him as he debated with himself if he should take action. In both instances the outcome was way better than I'd feared, but I suspect I might continue to abandon the last ten minutes of the show until my heart settles down and is prepared to deal with whatever comes. At Staff: I tried to remove the pictures, except for the one with the text I was referring to, but the system wouldn't allow me to.
  12. Episode 2, was fun [Skipped one because I can't always find the patience for the set up, though PGB's hair was great. Read a recap and I'll watch it later.] Seriously drunk KJH was a hoot. CSH is a good sport. Sorry but I am not eating unwrapped food from someone's pocket. I was expecting her to put the dried squid in a special place as a treasured memory. I've been thinking about Korean black cap of invisibility. In every drama K-drama [Shout out to Terrius or whoever is behind me and The Beauty Within] the folks use black caps like a wizarding coat of invisibility to great effect. I guess the cap doesn't work that well on women. Has anyone ever seen PBG dance. They edited in the dance sequences as if he cannot dance, or at least as if he cannot move his feet in time with the music. It seemed like a weird choice. Have the series clarified the age difference. He've aged PBG up to 29 for KJH, but I don't see as age for CSH.
  13. I had a similar thought, maybe he got in a bar fight and was badly bruised. But really how big must that pimple be that they couldn't even show a 1/2 of his face. [At first I thought the army had come and got him, then I checked his age are realized it couldn't be the army's fault.]
  14. Just dropped by to see if anyone knew why the male member of the OTP was missing at the end. No rumors here. I enjoyed the drama. Did not realized it was cut short. No true resolution with the brother. No true resolution with the brother's father. No on-screen consequence for the top guy dealing with gangster. The security couple had a nice arc (I'm overlooking the female security guard's dog in the manger attitude.) Sorry it was cut short. I'd be curious to know what the full drama was intended to be.
  15. I came in to check the response to the ending, and maaaaannnnn. . . Early in the series I thought this was a kdrama that asked for a second season. However I thought a second season would only work if the romance was not front and center. But the series decided to give everyone what they wanted and ended up giving no one what they wanted. Well it isn't an open ending. Yet this mix-bag seems . . . If the series were going to go with the romance, then all power to them. I think the ending would have been better on the romance front if they had made him live/recover and the couple live happily ever after. OR Da-Il had died and left this plane forever therefor cause deep sadness and pain but ultimately allowing everyone to love and move on. If they had wanted an ending that left us with a gang of Scooby Dooes busting ghost it would have worked better without the romance and with deep friendship Or the the romance being there but unspoken and un-acted upon. I suspect this ending is unsatisfying for the romantics and the ghost-detective fans because a) in my mythology of death the afterlife is where you go for your post live reward and rest. Spirits hanging around and unfulfilled unhappy beings. And as much as I love what I do for a living my idea of hell is finding out after I die I would have to keep working at my day job. b) being emotionally invested in an ultimately unavailable man seems an unfulfilling way fo Yeol Wool the plan to live for the rest of her life. c) if Yeol Wool finally decide she can live without Da-Il where does he go? d) I'm still curious to know what a second season might be like. e) I do think it is fair to ask if audience can support a romance between a human and a vampire(the dead/undead), why can't we support a romance between a living human and a dead human.
  16. I agree with you 100% about Detective Park's behavior and feelings towards YeolWool. 1-He was never indifferent towards her. 2-Even as he shut her down he was never truly dismissive. He was always aware of her. 3-He never "accepted" her gifts (bribes really) but kept her presents. 4-He is a detective. YiRang's public suicide had tons of witnesses, none of whom saw the "RedLady" therefore it make sense for Detective Park not to indulge YeolWool's grief induce delusion so that she could recover from her grief of her sister's death. 5-It's clear he's a righteous and a man of honor. 6-If this was real life and a "detective" was trying to follow up on a woman's grief about her sister's suicide by locating a witness only she saw and had any romantic interest in the woman it would be obvious he was trying to get into her pants more than solve her sister's death. 7-I think Detective Park is a bit of an introvert and also a respectful observer. Although he care for YeolWool and watch her behave strangely she has never intruded in her grief. 8. He is a good, sweet, sane guy who only "romantic crime" was not believing in Yeolwool's delusion.
  17. Who is your she? Is "she" RedLady or is "she" the writer? I was writing about the writer/creative team, not a character. It is my belief that the purpose of dramas is to make the audience suffer. Even rom-coms need a touch of suffering to work. A good writer creates characters audience can and do love and then the writer torture the character and the audience by extension. I don't know any good dramas that don't cause a level of second hurt on behalf of characters. Even in comedies watching character you care about humiliating themselves is painful. I never quite understand when people want the complications to be resolved by week two. I never understood what they thought would happen after that. The more you feel for a character both joy and pain, the more successful the writer has been. My Mister was a gloomfest. Talk about torturing characters. However because of the magnitude of suffering every little ray of sunshine lifted the spirits high. While many in the forum lamented, Da-il's death didn't really matter much to me since the character remained and he didn't seem particularly bothered about being dead--expect that he was hungry and couldn't figure out how to eat. Or when he had problem communicating idea. Aside: that's the worse ghost life depiction ever. Da-Il runs around and gets tired and hungry. He has to run from place to place. What's the point in being a "ghost" if you are going to get tired as if you are alive. There is no guarantee that someone will die. They may all live to be in the sequel. Not that anyone said there would be a sequel, but . . .
  18. I think there will be a blood sacrifice as a way of sucker-punching the audience emotionally. I don't think I said it would be Kim Gyeol. If I did that was a typo. Sacrificial lambs in dramas have to be good or working for the greater good. If they are bad, their death looks like justice, not a sacrifice. They had to have been someone the the audience cares about to achieve some kind of emotional climax. I don't think Gyeol fits that profile, mostly because I don't connect with him. I've said a couple of times that I think Detective Park will be sacrificed to create an emotional climax. Sang Sub is another possible candidate for sacrifice. I love Chae-Won but she isn't sentimental and her dying won't create the emotional resonance that Park or Sang-Sub's death would. If they just want to kill random people they can kill Lawyer Baek. The writer can kill anyone she wants. But I don't think it will be Da-Il. If his condition changes in a direction that warrantees his death then the writer would have earned the right to kill Da-Il. But she has already "killed" him so why bother doing it again. If there is a significant death I suspect it the happen in the penultimate week and it will raise the stakes and increase the urgency for the Scoobies to stop RedLady. If it is Da-Il it could probably only happen in the last half hour of the series, if that early. While no human being is disposable, characters in dramas can be. I think Gyeol is somewhat disposal. As he is right now his death wouldn't cause a tectonic shift. Sang Sub death now would. Detective Park's death in a few more week will. While this drama has a relatively high body count, it is of "day players" not the core group. No one the audience knows well has died. Da-il's mother, YiRang, the nursery teacher and the principle the audience didn't know them well. Da-Il's mother and YiRang we feel we know, but we actually only know them through their connection to their son and daughter, respectively. The nurse we knew better but didn't like. I have no idea what with happen. My opinions are based on generalized narrative structure and how stories are usually put together. So who knows what will happen. I don't.
  19. 1st paragraph: Sorry, after several reading I am unable to follow the argument presented in the paragraph I italicized. 2nd paragraph: I mentioned Brooklyn to say that the ways doors are secured vary significantly based on geography. I didn't realize that there are places where the security chains are "decoration" and not used to secure the entrance. As someone who has lived in a city for most of my life, opening a door without engaging a chain after an attempted break-in, without first using a peephole (if one had one) seems rash and foolhardy and took me out of the verisimilitude of the scene. From the response of the some commenters my pointing out that this behavior seems like not the smartest way to act has somehow ????? done ????something???? (i'm not sure what) to their experience of the scene. Yeolwool's behavior looks poorly considered from the perspective of someone living in an metropolitan area in the United States. But as I said this drama was created with me in mind. I just hopped on the the ride. Seoul has a reputation of being one of the safest cities in the world so maybe that's how they do doors there. Thank you for offering permission for me to think as I think. I respect your right not to be bother by the unchained door. Since this is an open forum of one hopes that all experiences and perspectives are welcomed and that it is possible to share varying response to the drama without forum members feeling that their beloved drama is being attacked. I don't have time to waste on dramas I don't like. However liking a drama doesn't mean I leave my critical thinking ability behind. Actually that is the reason I watch drama--to think about different aspects of a the creative process not the fangirl over the product. I'm not here to change folks minds and I'm not here to be a part of a consensus that I don't agree with. I will continue to write about what I find interesting until I'm explored the subject to my satisfaction --or until a moderator decide to censor me. Despite what folks might think, I am not bashing the drama. I am watching and enjoying a different drama than the romantics seem to be doing--and I assume that is permitted. Thank you for trying to help me understand the other perspective on how locks work in other places in the world. I have acknowledged the validity of other perspectives on the use of chains on locks. With the new information her not using the chain makes sense intellectually, but it does not make sense to me viscerally. Didn't even realize that the forum would see what followed the opening of the door as being romantically significant as I was caught off guard by how reckless what came before seemed. I'm done. But I'll answer anyone who want to discuss door, lock, chains and geography more.
  20. I think you are right. The price Da-Il pays for being able to affect the human world is loss of some of his soul and moving closer to being evil. I don't know what a Fetch is technically, but I don't think Da-Il was a fetch before he tried to stab RedLady/ or perhaps want to pummel Gyeol. One of those acts seems to have activated the Fetch mechanism. It is very possible doors and lock work differently than they do in Brooklyn. In fact I'm sure they do. Few Korean drama have doors with old-fashioned lock and keys so . . . Since they drama is made for folks in Korea not in Brooklyn how the chain is use might well be different. Not knowing otherwise I can only respond to doors lock chains from what I've been exposed to. I know how chains on doors works from being an apartment dweller and overnighting at hotels. I know the chains aren't that strong, and anyone who busted the door open wouldn't be stopped by the chain. I mentioned that previously. As I mentioned previously it was her opening the door without engaging the chain after the attempted intrusion, knowing that the enemy distorts perspective that made little sense. Yeah, in real like fight/flight/freeze can happen to anyone at anytime. Usually the drama which aren't real but are simulacrum when things like that happen it is usually dealt with through a callback to say, we did that, but it's a plot point, and we will get back to in. In Terius Behind Me the female lead went into the forbidden room with a notepad. The camera hesitate on her putting the notepad down just inside the door so that the audience would pay attention. There was no similar attention to her taking the notepad out of the room when she left. I fully expect for that notepad being left behind to be a plot point. If it isn't it will seem like the continuity person left work early.
  21. That's a valid perspective. And as I mentioned putting on the chain at that time would only offer a modicum more protection. But I do believe she asked who is it. [I may be wrong on that.] So she wasn't trying to pretend she wasn't home. Also the thing that bothered me most was opening the door without the chain. Different experience, different perspective. That's what makes it all so interesting.
  22. Episode 9. Unless it's a plot point, the unused chain on YeolWool's door was just beyond stupid. [EDIT: Couple of commenters seem to find the preceding statement drama bashing. Not my intent. They have made the argument that it is legitimate that people don't use their chains. I can't dispute that is how people roll in other places in the universe. However looking at that chain hanging unused messed with my experience of the scene and destroyed the verisimilitude for me.] It [the unused chain] made the scene almost unbearable to watch. Not because it made the scene tense, but because it took me out of the scene wondering about YeolWool's stupidity. Someone is knocking at YeolWool's door that makes her nervous, she doesn't put the chain on. The extra protection the chain offers is minimal, but every bit counts. She know she is dealing with an entity that causes disruption in perception, YET she opens the door for who she thinks is Da-Il without putting the chain on or looking through a peephole. [I'm not sure she has a peephole, not that it matters because if she did she wouldn't use it. So disappointed in the production's attention to detail. [Will take it back if it proves to be a plot point.] I really love Detective Park. I find him the most human of the group. As much as I love him, I really get angry when people interfere with people violate people's privacy. Chae-Won asked him to not watched and yet he did. As annoyed as it makes me with him, I realize my annoyance is irrational because 1) He's a detective. It is in his job description that he will violate people's privacy. 2) He has to violate their privacy for reasons internal to the story because the Scooby team won't tell him anything. And he doesn't want them to tell him anything about the supernatural element of the case. If they did he'd be forced to accept things he doesn't want o believe in OR call them crazy and walk away. 3) He needs to know things that he cannot be told by the ScoobyDos so the plot can move forward. While Detective Park's recurring heartbreaks makes me wish for his happiness in some way, shape, or form [and because i care about him so much I am convinced they will kill him to create an emotional climax] Kim Gyeol angst, regret, and guilt is something I understand intellectually but rarely it touches me emotionally. Kim Gyeol is more a source of annoyance than he is contributing tension to the plot. Kim Gyeol's interaction with the REdLady gives the series a chance to see her cunning but he seems like such a mental lightweight that her ability to trick him doesn't even seem that brilliant. Kim Gyeol be good or be more interesting with being conflicted and deluded. Please. EDIT: I don't think the old woman, [whomever she might be, I'm not convinced like she's RedGirl mother without proof beyond YeolWool analysis] is trying to hurt Da-Il. I think she is doing what the nurse, who she has no reason not to trust, tells her is best for Da-Il. I've also heard her described as crazy. I don't see any reason to think she is crazy. So far we can surmise she drinks too much. 1- It is perfectly possible to marry and not want kids, not have kids, and live a wonderfully fulfilled happy life. 2- Sometimes you have to have kids to know you hate parenting. I didn't actually say all that. I'm not sure why she thinks/felt there was no love. I don't know that there was no love. This is a mystery. The people creating the story will chock it full of misdirection. Also, not all parents kill their children because they don't love them. There are some parents, especially in infanticide and suicide, whose disordered thinking cause them to kill their children because they love them and believe that the world that has treated the parent badly is too awful a place to treat their children well if the parent are not around, so they take their children with them when they plan their death. It's messed up, but people kill for many reasons. The Scooby team posit that REdLady's current behavior is about repeating the circumstance of her life before her "death". She is giving all her victims the exact same choice her father had and she herself had. One must die. You decide will it be you or someone you love. Redlady's father had the choice and he chose to live and let his children die. Redgirl had he choice and she decided to live and let her father and brother die. [I don't consider this murder. But she might] Da-Il's mom had that choice and she decided to die and let her son live. I'm not sure if YiRang had an option of killing YeolWool to live. [Wait. I guess YiRang did (maybe) since she was being tormented with the idea that she was a burden to YeolWool.] And I'm not sure if the nursery school teacher and the principal had that choice. Gyeol had the choice and he chose himself. I don't think it is a bad/wrong choice especially if he doesn't do the actual killing, but in this instance it is a bad choice because he made a deal with a deamon. Deamons can't be trusted. They don't keep their word. What the true deal is, is die and be done with me, or live and I'll kill someone in your name and you become my thrall forever. So RedLady's action that reflects on her death is -targeting children [that's how the series began] -binary choice: one must die, you or someone you love. -love induced guilt. victims are tormented that their very existence has caused a burden to the people who they love [Redgirl and brother were burdens to their parents--or so it seems] -suicide as a mean of freeing their loved one. [One wonders if REdgirl regrets not freeing her father by knowingly allowing herself to be murdered--which would be then a suicide.] -death by poison Here is the thing: - The majority of the audience have reacted to Redlady/girl as is she is a full grown adult psychopath. And that makes sense because we met her in an adult body behaving as a psychopath. - The attempted poisoning at the travelfair gave YeolWool a chance to establish the Redlady is not Redlady but Redgirl in her own mind. [She craves MaryJanes as footwear and when she isn't in MaryJanes she is in sneakers--both are choice footwear for very young girls] Her handwriting is the handwriting of a 12 year-old. Chances are that her thoughts and critical thinking reasoning ability is that of a 12 year-old. And her sense of "morality" is that of a 12 year-old who grew up in a hand-to-mouth existence. - We are viewing causing the death of her father as something she did without conscience, YET the nurse explained that her first kill was the person she loved most in the world. We know that it her Father. So we MIGHT be viewing this entire story incorrectly. -This might be the story of a girl who loved her father very much, even if he was a little shady. -She tested him one last time, never expecting him to fail. -When he failed her test of his love it destroyed her faith in humanity and her sense of self. -She is filled with regret and horror. -She feels as if she is a monster. -The only way she can be less of a monster is to establish that what she did was what any other HUMAN BEING WOULD DO, save themselves over the person they love most. -So Gyeol belongs to her because he made the same choice she did. -The other people by choosing to save their loved ones and kill themselves reinforce the idea that she is a monster and a awful daughter who didn't love enough to die for love. If that is the case, the only way to stop RedLady's destruction is to undo the guilt she feels over living after causing her father to die. BUT THEN AGAIN, MAYBE NOT.
  23. Episode 8. The acting on the series is lovely. But even among such marvelous work I have to call out Lee Jae-Kyoon for his quiet intensity and his ability to touch my heart with his simplicity. The moment when he figured out what he had seen was YeolWool comforting Da-Il and he had no chance to win her heart, broke MY heart. Well done Lee Jae-Kyoon. There was a comment about Da-Il wearing the same clothes all the time. I think like food, the rules of the other side requires that ghost be offered things, they can't just take what they want. So until someone offers Da-il new clothes and burn it so he can access it, he should be in that outfit. I wonder what big boss man has to do with Red Lady's death. RedLady has something essentially wrong. Her power only seems to work where there is love. People kill to protect their loved ones. I suspect that she thinks love was missing in her life which is why she is so angry. Random thoughts: It is my belief that the first acting class that male Korean actors are required to take is full out running and the second class is female co-star piggybacking.
  24. Fans have a long history of being judgemental and limited in their outlook and tolerance for change. I seriously hope Da-il is not back to "life" already. And if he is I hope it is because that they need to cater to a fanbase limited imagination and objection to anything that stretch the the image of their star. It's fanbase like this that kill artistry. It is way too early in the narrative for Da-il to be back to life unless it is well thought out. Fans. Eyeroll. What difference does it make if Da-il is alive or dead or half dead. If you are a Choi Daniel fan and is his doing good work in a drama why isn't that enough. Eyeroll eyeroll eyeroll.
  25. Well I don't know much about Korean ghosts, fetchs, or rules for supernatural beings but I assume her spirit (which was locked out of her body) is back in her body where it belongs. Something is in thate body activating it. Red Lady now seems amoral as a new born who only knows what it wants and needs and does what is feels necessary to fulfill that needs. I think the preview said that Red Lady has lost her ability to control people minds and push them to suicide so she must now kill using her corporeal state--if she continues as she has been she will now be a serial killer. Yet, I'm not sure if she has lost her her any or all of her ability of manipulate. Blood flowing into people's eyes seems to be the sign that Red Lady's will is at work in the person. We saw the male witness to the hospital murders change his description of the perpetrator to throw people off her trail. We saw him do with with blood visible in his eyes. It could be that 1) she can still manipulate people/affect their thinking to a certain level but cannot push them to suicide OR 2) the Scooby Team may just be flat out wrong about Red Lady's new abilities. I don't think their expert ChaeWon knows much about re-incorporated fetchs. Western Fetch https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fetch_(folklore)
