Yes, the vest isn't made in Granada. What I mean was it SHOULD have been placed on the ground along with the guns and special items but it was omitted. I guess the editor/director forgot to include about it. :D

Ah... I didn't notice it. LOL. Yes, they might forgot this. Or the game might think that the vest won't work anyway. It can't shield him from getting stabbed.

In Episode 10, when an endless wave of zombies attack him without mercy, he loses all hope and sinks to the floor to await death.

If HJ didn't come with the phone call and ask the staffs to check on him. I think he's ready on his death that time. He even let go his sword willingly. Sadddd.... :tears:

He wants it known that they died on a quest to find SeJoo and to prove that the program is flawed.

And too bad he'd fail on this still. Sigh... people blame him.

That time, he’s about to make the sign of cross and leave the church. But before he can finish crossing himself, HS reappears in front of the altar like a resurrected dead and starts to charge at him. But without mercy or moral hesitation or flicker of emotion on his face, JinWoo shoots him in the middle of the church. NPC HS drops dead in the aisle. Another death has gone unnoticed.

 

This scene is bravo. I mean the acting. I lnow I shouldn't be glad of this, but my point is about the expression he had there. Whooahh... it gives me goosebumps. Jjang!!

In that scene in Episode 7, we have a memorial mass being offered for the death of HyunSuk, and now in Episode 10, another requiem is needed for the death of his Secretary Seo.


Do you see that? :D

IKR!! I feel it the same way. And they seems love to make many reflection scenes. Like here in ep 11, when HJ comes with the rescue call and send the guards with light to suspend the game when he's almost killed. Or when HJ runs in the rain with the umbrella for him. It reminds him like how she runs at the train station for him. 

 

Thanks for the link. I enjoyed reading it. It is indeed very long but I am glad I read it. LOL

No one here realized that Seo had a girlfriend and was going to get married in one months time? 

 

Poor Seo, GF and his/her family :tears:

On why JW has to go back to Korea to ask for the server to be turned on ~ I think he not only wanted to instruct turning on the server, but he needs to level up quickly also. So he probably plans to go back to the school and fight hundreds of NPCs to level up to 100.

 

JW found the key when he reached the end of the dungeon at 1:15 hour left for the quest. Whereas he rested at the empty spot at 58 min left, then he got ambushed by hundreds of zombies and City Hunter appeared to help him. I guess even after finding the key, he has to make his way out before he can continue with the game. The 48 hour quest from parchment must be only to find the key?

 

As for the romance, I thought it was alright, given the time spent for gaming, it's about time to have a little bit of progress with the romance. And it's good timing I thought, because everybody left him at that point. He literally has no one who is on his side, except for HJ. Don't worry, next episode we'll enter into gaming again since JW has invited (forced, taken hostage :lol:) of Prof.Cha to be his ally....

First time posting here, hello!!

 

I love this drama so much and successfully turns me to be a fan of Hyunbin, because I've never really interested in him before this lol.

And I also really like Shinhye in this drama, sure there are some things that didn't sit well with me but they're all minor things, as long as it doesn't disturb my experience in watching the drama.

 

So far, I love the progress, all aspects and all episodes of the drama, maybe because I am the type to watch and going along with the ride hahaha :D

I hope the rating continues to raise, MoTA deserves higher rating imho

 

notes: THE KISSSSSSS OMG:wub: Hyunbin >< Shinhye pair makes the most beautiful kdrama pair (this is just from my kdrama experience, I do watch kdrama quite a lot and have been watching for years), both are gorgeous and have chemistry, I cannot thank dramagod enough for this pairing:wub:  I'll be replaying that scene a lot for sure:D

annyeong everyone new member here :lol: I decided to make an acc, finally! after being a silent reader for a month since MoA aired.

 

I have so many delighted moment every time I read every comments here about MoA. and wanna join you all in this party :wub:

 

now we're getting closer to the end, I'm really curious how Zinu (I really like this nickname for Jin Woo :D) will complete this game and find Se Joo. I'm also very curious whether the error in this game will be disclosed in detail. about how this game can kill its players irl. about how this game can still running even without the media that should be used. does Se Joo know all of these risks since the beginning he built the game or not. and whether only he and Marco were involved in this game's making.

 

about Prof. Cha, I ady knew that he would also get rid of Zinu in the end. I remember when Prof. Cha said "I think I will lose both", this sentence has revealed what is in Prof. Cha's heart actually. esp when he decided to visit Zinu first rather than see the body of his biological son.

in preview of ep 12 we see Zinu involving Prof. Cha goes into the game and makes him as an alliance. is Prof. Cha will see everything like Jeong Hun? what is Zinu plan besides showing the fact that he is not crazy and hallucinating? this drama really pulled me deeper.

 

and OH KISS SCENE! YAYYYYYYYYYYY OMG MY AJEOSSI SLAYYYYY I CAN'T SLEEP BCZ OF IT (excuse me for abuse capslock, my heart burst out since last nite I can't handle). it's so gentle and so sweet and soothe my pain bcz I'm crying a lot for Jeong Hun. I'm giddy to see the continuation (or even a replay) of it in tonite ep pretty pls pls pls  :bawling:   :bawling: :bawling:   :bawling: wanna see the bear hug too huhuhu

btw, I like how Zinu and Hee Joo relationships develop naturally. it maybe too excessive if you viewed from a different perspective. but imo, their romance is very meaningful for both. it isn't just an ordinary love between men and women, but an emotional relationship that is formed from all the disadvantages and mysteries that result in many losses. they need each other to work together to solve this mystery. and I hope their alliance will get the desired result in the end.

 

on the other side, I actually wanted a little flashback about how Zinu and Su Jin got married. how Su Jin and Hyun Seok were able to establish a relationship and then decided to get married. did they really betray Zinu or not? and I'm also curious how Zinu got married with Yura. but maybe this is too much, because it's considered insignificant.

 

ahhhh how I wish Se Joo is alive safe and sound, living in the real world. alongside with Min Joo and grandma give the bless to their breadwinner and our ajeossi to get married and live happily ever after.

still on my plan to just wait and see on how the story unfold (its been a while since I decided to step back on logic and rely on mentioned magic while watching it) :sweatingbullets:

I just hope writer will eventually justify this roller coaster phasing of the story by connecting each characters action in full circle. Afterall we audience can only see JW pov ^_^

Hi again, this drama is the only drama i got exhausted to guess what will happen next,  i am on a state where  i am just go with the flow whatever will happen next hehe... but I hope.. all this time JW was narrating right?! Whom he is narrating the story with? I hope he is narrating it to the audience during the launch of the game at the end of all JW’s problem and become at the top again hehe

I thought the quest in the dungeon was to find Master/SJ.

 

But JW finds a key for users above level 100 only. JW is at level 91, he can't use the key even if he found SJ in the dungeon all tied up or locked in a chest.

 

So what was the freaking point of the dungeon quest again?

Coz I don't see the point of it. SJ was not found. Seo is dead. JW is cray2 and dismissed.

I remember fangirling over Hyun Bin’s kissing skills in his previous dramas and movies lol. This one didn’t disappoint. Also, I may have cried (a lot) during the flashback with Secretary Seo. I like the development of Jinwoo and Heejoo’s relationship. It didn’t suddenly become a romance. It gradually developed and I think Jinwoo started to realize the extent of his feelings when she took care of him in Granada and saw her crying for him at the train station. But he has so much to deal with and involving romance wasn’t exactly his priority (hence him being called mean by Heejoo). For me, he was so lost and desperate and found someone who was like an anchor to him... and he finally gave in. Heejoo has saved or protected him more than once (even unknowingly) and that’s an integral role. But I also wish her character will know more about the game her brother created... because she might actually be the key to find him, yes?

Lol.

 

This knetz summary is spot on:

 

9. [+124,-12] <Summary for the episode>As long as it's Hyun Bin...... Even if he becomes a game addict, he made her brother disappear, limping with one leg, divorced twice, became jobless, getting sued, a woman like Park Shin Hye would give up her birthday party to take care of him, feed him, protect him from the rain with an umbrella and even accept his sudden kiss.

I dont think just PSH, I bet all women of all ages wud too:lol:

 

Also I remember when SJ first call JW to offer to sell the game to him, he said he didnt want to sell to the other guy becos the other guy looks like a bad guy. Do we know for sure who the bad guy is? We assumed CTH is the bad guy, but no matter how I see him, he didnt look like a bad guy to me, at least if comparing to JW in the beginning., both are equally arrogant & ruthless. Infact I remember that Marco wanted to approach JW just to get competitive higher price. Cud it be possible Prof Cha has been contacting SJ directly, & telling him to do this & that to the game until SJ realized what he was doing & he cant control it anymore, which was why he ran off to see Marco, where Marco went out to make a new deal with CTH. Seems Prof Cha had it all plan out nicely. He didnt allow doing post morten on CTH body becos he didnt want outsiders to know his death cause by the game, now that he had removed JW, he ooen up the case again, also removing SJ & thus his grandson too from his family, surely there is something abt him related to the game. Also is dr Cha really his biological son?

If professor Cha doesn't see his son appearing in the game, then that's just gonna prove that he has something to do with and want Jin-woo and others to believe that he is crazy. I really wanna know what Yura said to the Prof.  was it something about Jinwoo? or about the Professor himself?! also ......... I'm really tired, where's Seju for real? and when will Heeju have a bigger part in this drama? 

 

THIS!

 

My sentiment exactly.

 

I hope PSH wasn't just a mere accessory. Kinda tired watching her having similar The Heirs (cha eun sang?) vibe. Silently I'm hoping she gonna be a pillar.. source of strength for JW. Baddass woman equally hotheaded with JW.

 

Seju oh seju maybe he is not dissapear just having a bust schedule singing & dancing Love Shot w/ his pals in INKIGAYO.

@dramaobsessed 

(I mean we know he is not crazy because we see his side of the story, but why does she trust him? a stranger who hasnt been able to find her brother? and who has conned her? just because she likes him?, has some chemistry with him? and he is attractive? is that reason enough???

I dont think people who are going through a rough time do not need love, they do, I just didnt feel that he convinced me enough that he wanted her, because of how he has been acting so far...we know he secretly has feelings for her, but since he is a man of ambition and so far has not been able to be successful in finding her brother, which he promised by the way, and he has been kicked out of his company, as someone says he is jobless...there are so many things against him right now....realistically, if he really loves her he would try to sort things out first....I dont think his character would think about romance, because he would feel like he is not worthy of her yet, he would want to protect her ...until he finishes the quest and is able to regain normalcy again, then he would pursue her. I know they are trying to give us a, "us against the world" kind of romance, but just a few hours before he was pushing her away...on her birthday!!! what made him want to kiss her now? the fact that he is now a murder suspect? that is the only thing that changed...there was no indication or build up that he wanted her, it was rejection rejection rejection, oh poor me, my story is so tragic, prove to me that you trust me...but she has been proving it all this time!!! he was the one who has been pulling away...as someone said she was the one who was supposed to kiss him....IMO they didnt build it up well....)

 

 

—————

I know it sounds ridiculous to see him suddenly (I think not) kissed her just because he wanted a prove from her, even after she said she believed him. But apparently because he was not sure that he trusted and also loved her.  His love life with the ex-es made him did not believe in love. He also once said that all the tears from his exes were fake but he knew that HJ tears was sincere eventhough he could not say it to HJ. Also JW needs support from Hj after people around in the company left him, and he thinks love and trust from HJ are the most important ones right now. What Park told him to runaway again made him brave to fight and to not surrender from finding SJ then he needs HJ beside him. In preview we see that he is confidently meet prof Cha in his class to prove he is not crazy. His appearance is fresh and full confidence also does not look tired, perhaps it because he has enough sleep or because of HJ love and support? Maybe...

So, if we say that he should chase her after he completed the quest and find SJ, this drama should be extended untill eps 20, right?

I don't understand how some of your theories work when it is not Professor Cha who created the game or the killing aspect. That aspect existed long before the company got control of the game. If you recall Se Joo was attacked after he had spoken to Jin Woo and offered him the game because he did not want to sell to Hyung Seok's company. At this point to speculate that Professor Cha has managed to engineer some way to target people and have them killed seems very far fetched.

even i am of the opinion that humans aren't really doing anything as far as the game is concerned..

how do you explain logging into the game without the lens.. that is not human doing..

 

game has gone bonkers.. question is did server shutdown contain the game? Or this story ends as soon as they find sejoo and then shut down the server.. and this whole saga remains in all the characters' lives something miraculaous and dangerous.

 

to me , it still seems like JW is narrating this story to police or you know explaining deaths to someone..

 

after ep 11 i think i might be right

Regarding HB and romance, I've been thinking about HB's project choices since he's been back from the army, and it seems that he has been deliberately choosing projects where romance isn't a big part. His 2 dramas (Jekyll and Me, Memories of Alhambra) both have romantic elements, but his films have hardly any romance at all (Fatal Encounter, Confidential Assignment, Swindlers, Negotiation, Rampant). I wonder what's driving his choices in this matter. Perhaps he's deliberately trying to do projects that are different from the romances, both comedy and melodrama, that he was known for before?

 

As for the romance in this drama, I can understand that some may not be satisfied with the way it's being portrayed or progressed. For me, the progression made sense because it's always been there as a subtext, expressed by both HJ and JW. The potential with HJ also seems to have been one of the causes for JW's dogged pursuit to find out where SJ is and what happened to him. And, even though JW's world is tumbling down, his ray of hope if HJ who is the only left at his side. So, perhaps the kiss is more lifeline than grand sweeping romance, but I'm willing to accept it in that way for JW for the moment. As for whether it's a pity kiss on HJ's part, I might think that if HJ had not been demonstrating that she's come to care for JW and is attracted to him. She feels sympathy for JW, but she is also attracted to him, so I don't think it's a pity kiss. Rather, I think it's more attraction and curiosity on HJ's part about JW.

 

My biggest issue with this drama for the moment is that HJ and Emma don't have a bigger role to play as yet, and that's one issue that I hope will be addressed in the future.

 

Anyway, some random thoughts waiting for episode 12. I'm hoping that the episode will continue ramping things up since there won't be many episodes left after this one.
