I may have missed something, but I have a question.
What happened to the Marco bug?

I'm asking the same question. But the drama has ended and no one would give us the answer. LOL

 

But let me try to imagine it. Marco bug might got deleted as the game successfully reset. 

 

If I can say. The whole drama is just about Yoo Jin Woo and the game. He is the one who have been told from the first to the last.

 

@staygold I was hoping for the same thing when I reach that episode. Even I felt so disappointed after 15, I kept hoping that there would be something to fix all this absudity. Kekeke. But then, well dramas imitated real life, it won't always go as your wish. 

 

At least I got one good moral message from the writer "Don't play the game too much. It would ruin your life. " very good message to the young people who are badly addicted to games. I guess she wanted to pointed out this issue. I like the message but I don't feel happy with it. Tch...

I was pretty confident i thought the owner of the game should be able to fix the error haha....

It should. SJ made us lost our bet huh. I should have trusted my intuition that JW is the key of everything. And I thought so as well. The creator should take responsible with what he'd created. Especially if it has led to many misfortunes to other people. I feel sad that seems only JW who had to suffer and fight this hard the whole time only to end up as a bug. This conclusion left me totally flabbergasted. Speechless.

yepppp let's use the red reaction in other side of thread huahuahuahua

I'll see you then! 

 

P.S  

@Kasmic you right. But it is useful for some reason too. ;)

 

I guess this would be my last comment for now unless something/someone brings me back here again. I'm sorry for my jokes, words and all. I ended relentlessly disappointed with the ending. So I need to move on. But I really had lot of fun here. See u all on next drama threads guys! :kiss_wink: :star:

@Kasmic Hello there chingu!! I know many are frustrated with this finale!! So I purposely came to the thread to vent and calm myself down!! :lol: I hope some blessed person writes some cool fanfic to help us resolve this bitterness!

 

SJ's suicide attempt too felt just a filler! Everything was half hearted except YJW marching out spectacularly with his sword/gun while playing the game!!! :wub:

 

Now I am finding faults everywhere because I am so angry!! Need to breathe in and out!!! :sweatingbullets:

An epilogue (with time skip or whatever) would do. Sigh.

My thought: The end is meant to be an uninterpreted "happy ending". Jinwoo technically was not a murderer. However, he indirectly caused the death of Mr. Cha; and thus, that was how the story lead on. This also lead to the death of the other two characters. Therefore,  if the drama was to show Jin-woo having happy ending scenes with Hee-joo, I personally think that would make his character too guilt-less. For all the troubles, he was not the one to blame, yet he was also the one to blame.

By having an open-ended happy ending, the audience can interpret that Jinwoo and Hee-joo will eventually see each other again, without having to show it expressively.   

 

About any loose-ends, it's just a drama and the main purpose is entertaining, so sometimes, we just have to let go of some minor details.

 

Overall, I find this drama to be very interestingly entertaining. The scenery is beautiful and the acting is superb as well. It gives a good message to those addicted gamers out there.

The ending was very unexpected and a bit disappointing but one thing is for sure that Yoon Jin Woo is still alive and he’s not a NPC and what matters the most is that Jung Hee Joo believes that he’s out there somewhere and didn’t give up.. so Hee Joo.. please level up and save your boyfriend.

 

I feel like there should be a movie sequel where it’s now Hee Joo’s story. She’s on a mission to save Jin Woo just like how Jin Woo went through all these obstacles to bring back Se Joo. She’s now fighting enemies with sword blades and guns. At last, she finally beat the game, bring back Jin Woo and he proposed to her and they live happily ever after and the game is destroyed. The end. That would of been an epic ending.

Actually, I dont understand why JW had to suffer so much and not deserve happiness, I mean he did save SJ something that he promised HJ he would do...however for whatever reason, the writer decided to give SJ a chance to start over with a new life so why not JW? SJ was able to be given a company and has "adoring fans" and is called a Genius...even though he is the creator of the game who actually was partly responsible for creating the game that went out of control and killed multiple people however at the end he was viewed as a hero...and the other hero, JW who went out to save him and also was a causality of the game had to continue to suffer by continuing to be stuck in the game...whether by choice or by being held captive by the game...we dont know...

 

So what makes SJ deserve happens and a fresh start while JW doesnt get that same liberty?

 

As fans, I dont think anyone wants to spend 16 hours watching something and be disappointed so if the story had minor problems I'm sure the majority would let it go...but the fact that a lot of people feel "cheated", unsatisfied and disappointed it means these are not minor details that had problems but that the story in fact has very big problems that a majority of the fans could not just overlook....

Memories of The Alhambra is trending everywhere not only in Korea but worldwide.. but not because of how great this drama but only because of its disaster ending.. Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye does not deserved this.. their acting is great and its one of the reason audience kept watching this drama.. I’m a new fan of Hyun Bin.. I like him since My Name is Kim Sam Soon but MOtA definitely bring out the best of him.. I’m not really hoping for season 2 but I hope Park Shin Hye and Hyun Bin will have another project together again.

Memories of the Alhambra (Alternative Story/Ending)


The original ending is sucks.
I work in IT, so there are so many things technology-related questions I have about this drama.
The "indon in another dimension" is just a lazy explanation and not sci-fi enough for me.


To me, the "how" and the small details are very very important. Things like:
1) Why there is no clear dividing line between physical and virtual line?
2) So how did those people really die? (Marco/Cha/JungHoon/Prof.Cha)
3) And why does those people "come back to live" in the game?
4) Who can guarantee the same bug won't happen again?
Etc...etc.

 

So, before we dive in into how the story should ends. 

Please take note on these things, as it is important background to the story, so please bear with me.

 

1) Can fear cause death? Yes. (Search "can fear kill you?" in google)
Fear can cause a classic heart attack in people who are already at risk. 
"A person who is walking around with a 50% narrowing of the arteries may never have symptoms, 
but if they're held up at gunpoint or narrowly miss an auto accident, 
their adrenaline levels can rise and destabilize that plaque," says Dr. Wittstein.

 

2) Is there anyway to artificially trigger fear? Yes, by vision a.k.a using the smart lens.
The lens can show users certain pictures that depicts users' deepest fear.
Once it's triggered, it will induce heart attack for the user and may end up kill the user.

 

3) What is programming?
Programming is the process of writing executable scripts by computer in a way as humanly as possible.

So it is using human common language. Like word "function","if", etc. We usually call it source code files. 

 

4) What is executable scripts?
Computer is a machine, when it runs a program, it doesn't run the source code files written by programmer.
But it runs the compiled version of the files, which is the closer version to "machine language", it is unreadable by human being. 
Try to open files with extension .dll in your computer with notepad, then you know what "machine language" will look like.

 

5) What is database?
Database is just a "place" within computer to keep data/information.

 

Why #3-4-5 are important?

In a computer game, there is the database and there is the executable program files.
Database is just a place to keep information, like details of users, users' level history, users' equipments, NPCs list, missions list, etc. 

However, the executable program itself is one that keeps the game running, for example: giving missions to users, creating NPCs according to users' level/missions. So, when the program detect that there is a user who has earned enough experience to level up, the program will then update the database, for example: to keep information that user A can already move from level 14 to level 15.

 

*******


Actually, when JOne acquired the game, they found out that they cannot change/enhance the existing code, as the existing code in the server is only executable script files and not the source code files. So, they cannot do any code change/enhancements, they just get the executable script files and duplicate it to servers in Korea. 

 

What engineers in JOne can do is to test the game, so they can find out the plots/levels/missions. And they can also modify the game database. That is why Choi YangJoo can invent so many new guns/equipments. And everytime JinWoo asked Choi YangJoo to create "new gun/equipment", it's actually just modifying the database, with specific information on the new gun characteristic.

 

They also can change the historical sites from Granada to Seoul. As this information is also saved in database. So for example: Level 1 final game boss will be in Gangnam, but Level 2 final boss will be in Busan. And how many NPCs/underlings that that final game boss has, this is also information saved in database. 

 

The one who has source code files (#3) will be SeJu. That is why it is very important for JOne (JinWoo) to find SeJu. They can find out the plots/missions by keep testing the game. But is that all there is to the game? Only SeJu can answer this question as he is the creator of the game.

 

So, when SeJu sent email to JinWoo in 1st episode, it contains account to access the executable program files in server ran by SeJu plus the access to the database. That account has privilege access to "read" the executable script, thus JOne can copy it from one server to another. And that account can modify the database information as well. SeJu is the only person in the world who has highest level access to the original source code files and the database information.

 

In the beginning, there was only 2 users, SeJu and Marco who are testing the game. However worried about Marco's greediness, SeJu then planned Emma in his brain. Emma is an AI (Artificial Intelligence), created by SeJu to protect the game and the users, in case the game is hijacked by an unauthorized person. As Emma's mission is to protect, SeJu would need a very unassuming and friendly NPC outlook, so he used his own sister's image, as he always thinks that his sister is the protector of their family after their parents passed away. Thus SeJu created Emma with HeeJu's appearance. He also assigned master level to Emma (the highest level in the game). Only SeJu and Emma have highest privilege access to these source code files, i.e either Emma/SeJu can modify the source code files. But only SeJu has full access to the database, but Emma doesn't have.

 

So SeJu's plan for Emma is an AI program that can evolve herself, and depending on the situations in real life, Emma has the capability to write new codes and insert it into the source code files. This is Emma's hidden function, only SeJu knows this hidden feature of Emma. However SeJu thinks he still needs to find out a way to deactivate this hidden function of Emma.

 

So when SeJu told Marco that he wanted to join the negotiation with Cha, Marco didn't like it as he wanted bigger portion of profit and Marco threatened SeJu in the Alambra cafe, SeJu has not yet finished with writing code for Emma at this point. Marco chose to duel and came into physical contact with SeJu, right in front of Emma. This is a trigger for Emma. Thus Emma is writing her first new code: "when users are in duel, they are not allowed to have physical contact in real life." Emma is fulfilling her first obligation, to protect the game and its users.

 

However Marco persisted to threatened SeJu, and it became mandatory for Emma to protect SeJu, so Emma took it one step further, by writing another code to make the lens showing horrifying pictures to user and induce fear so severe that it can cause heart attack to user. SeJu knew about this, and tried to stop Emma, but fail, Emma has implemented this new code to server. SeJu interrogated Emma and asked her to remove that new code or he would remove it himself, but Emma persisted and said the code is important. Her reasoning: Emma was created with SeJu's sister image, thus it is mandatory for her to protect SeJu at whatever cost. Knowing this, SeJu felt that it's even more urgent that he needed to write a new code to deactivate Emma, in case she steps out of her boundaries.

 

Emma knew SeJu's intention to disable her, so Emma wrote her third program that will attack nervous system of users, i.e hypnotizing users into coma through the lens. SeJu didn't know about this. She put the script to the server and trigger it but it failed. SeJu didn't fall into comma. However Emma found out that the hypnosis is so very strong, that as long as she put certain NPCs around user, user will think he/she is still on the game, and takes action needed to play the game. So she separated that code to specifically hypnotize users so they think they are still in the game, even when they removed the lens.

 

SeJu was still on the run from Marco and at the same time trying to finalizing a way to deactivate Emma. Emma then made it so that Marco chased SeJu to mountains area, and when SeJu was in danger, Emma triggered Marco's lens to induce severe fear and Marco got heart attack, right when SeJu fired his gun. SeJu got panicked and angry at Emma for implementing that code. So he rushed to his PC in apartment, planning to remove the code by himself.

 

Emma thought she has no other choice but protecting SeJu and herself. So, she wrote another code to create fake instance of Marco and made it hunt SeJu, SeJu freaked out and ran out of his apartment. This made SeJu had no time to finalize a way to remove Emma or remove any additional codes that Emma has put into the server.

 

While on the train back to Bonita hostel, SeJu finally figured a way to remove Emma and her toxic scripts, which is by creating a master key with hidden dagger. If Emma is stabbed with this dagger, it will "insert" script of self-destruction to Emma. He will need to masquerade it as final mission for user and inserted this final mission information to database. If he writes it as script, Emma can easily remove it, but impossible to remove if it's information in database (Emma has no access to the database).

 

But there is a limitation, as Emma is on master level, so that dagger also needs to be on master level and used by master level user, in order for it to have the highest impact. This spells trouble, even SeJu is not yet reaching master level. SeJu knows he will need to keep increasing his level to master while on the run from Marco, so that he can remove Emma for good. Fake Marco appeared around SeJu and hunted SeJu on the train, and SeJu got out of the other side of the train to mountains area, this was why JinWoo could not see SeJu.

 

When SeJu was on the run in mountains, Emma has finalized the script to "hypnotize" users and induce them into comma state. Emma put them into the server and triggered the script, SeJu then fainted and fell into comatose state, but he has finalized the master key and store it in the dungeon. He has succeeded finalizing script to destroy Emma by masquerading it as master level mission for users. An old farmer found SeJu and brought him to his house in the mountains where there is no internet, and also SeJu's phone is died at this point, so he was isolated and in comma state. Thus JinWoo is unable to find him until few months later.

 

Emma knows about this master key, but as she is not user, although she is on level master, she cannot just appear in dungeon and retrieve the key. She's still NPC, albeit master level NPC. Also only user can accomplished missions. She will need a level master user to retrieve the key and give it to her, so that she can destroy it or hide it and preserve her existence. NPC cannot just appear anywhere in the game, but users can. That's why Emma cannot go to the dungeon. Although she can modify the source code, but inside the game she is still bound within NPC rule, one of which is locations where she can appear.

 

After this time, there was 2 additional users, JinWoo and Cha, entering the game. Emma is planning to use one of them and raise him to master level and retrieve the key for her. Thus, when JinWoo and Cha was having a duel, JinWoo is the winner, again, Emma triggered the script to induce fear, Cha got heart attack and died. She triggered the hypnotize script to JinWoo (so that whether he used lens or not, he will think he is still in the game), and Emma created another instance of Cha (NPC Cha) to appear around JinWoo and hunt him down. So that every time JinWoo killed Fake Cha, JinWoo would get experience points and could raise to master level faster. However JinWoo was hospitalized and moved to US, and other ordinary users, they just don't duel against each other (or at least no one has that kind of motivation like JinWoo and Cha who has bloodbath enmity between them). So, Emma's plan was stuck for a while. 

 

During the 1 year that JinWoo was in US, he managed to find information about Marco and find comatose SeJu. It's just abnormal, so he hide it from HeeJu, hacked SeJu's email account and planned the fake emails in order not to make SeJu's family worried. Meanwhile, JinWoo was believed that SeJu's mind/consciousness is somehow trapped inside the game, it could be due to abnormal death of Marco. He hoped by reaching same level as SeJu or completing the game, he could somehow understood what SeJu tried to achieve and find a way to wake him up from his comma.

 

So JinWoo and JungHoon went back to Granada. JungHoon was died of a natural death. He was indeed fall from platform and hit his head. Continuing the mission alone, in the dungeon, when JinWoo was in danger, Emma then created Fake City Hunter to help JinWoo. This is the reason why JungHoon was also seen "alive" in the game. JinWoo managed to get the master key and came back to Seoul.

 

In Seoul, in the restaurant where HeeJu met JinWoo and she gave JinWoo information about master key should be given to "Fatima/Emma", this is actually incorrect information. SeJu is a "nerd", he doesn't even know that legend. Meanwhile JinWoo thought it would be the final mission. Actually, yes it was, it was the final mission scripted by SeJu before he fell into comma, but the final mission was not saying to "give" the key to Emma, but to "stab" Emma with it. JinWoo just doesn't have this information. So JinWoo called Choi YangJoo to make it possible for Emma to appear in the church. Choi YangJoo added this information in database, made it so that one of places where Emma can appear is church.

 

The moment Emma got the key, JinWoo's account is transformed into master level. As Emma no longer needs JinWoo, Emma then triggered the script to make induce fear that made JinWoo got heart attack, but it was failed. JinWoo got the notification "Emma Attack (Inducing Heart-Attack-Level-Fear) : Fail". Emma tried to make JinWoo fall into comatose state too, but it was also a failure. Again JinWoo got another notification, "Emma Attack (Inducing Commatose State) : Fail". JinWoo quickly thought, comma, isn't that the situation SeJu in right now? 

 

Why did those attacks fail? Because Emma and JinWoo are both on master level. A master level NPC cannot just kill a master level user through unusual means. There is only 1 item that can "kill" a master level "entity", which is the hidden dagger. In that split second, Emma stabbed JinWoo with the dagger, JinWoo hurt but managed to evade it, with important pieces of information:
1) Emma has 2 types of attack skills;
2) The dagger has capability to remove "error" (inserting self-destroying script);
JinWoo successfully ran away, but fainted due to stress, physical exhaustion and lack of sleep. Now Emma was in predicament, she still needs JinWoo to get the dagger, but JinWoo has gotten the hints about who she really is (what she capable of).

 

JinWoo was saved by the doctor and taken to hotel room. Prof.Cha came in and he thought to just make JinWoo died in the game, so he could take revenge for his son and let JinWoo took all the blame. He didn't know that it was Emma who is the real "killer". He only knew that if you killed in the game, you die. However, Emma knew about Prof.Cha's plan, as she's detecting unusual appearances of high level NPCs around JinWoo. Emma planned to help JinWoo, as she still need JinWoo account to deliver the key to her. Emma cannot just appear in hotel, she's just NPC, but Fake Cha can appear around JinWoo, so she created another Fake Cha to terror Prof.Cha, and Prof.Cha really died of heart attack, afraid to death getting hacked by his own son. 

 

JinWoo woke up and killed Fake Cha again. JinWoo wondered whether he can use the dagger to remove Cha for good as Cha should be considered as "error". JinWoo planned to experiment this on Cha. But he didn't understand why Emma stabbed him, he is certainly not an "error". He somehow has intuition that Emma got something to do with SeJu's comma state. So, he went back to the church to ask Emma.

 

Scoffing at JinWoo's stupidity and persistence, Emma told everything. She then summoned Fake Marco and Fake Cha to fight with JinWoo. As 2-to-1 is not enough, because JinWoo's level is master level after all, plus with existence of JungHoon(City Hunter) as JinWoo's ally. Emma summoned even more Fake Marcos and Fake Chas to subdue JinWoo...cue Matrix-fighting style.

 

 

 

Meanwhile HeeJu heard from the news that JinWoo last seen was in the church. So HeeJu went there, but seeing the fight between JinWoo+Fake City Hunter against Fake Marcos+Fake Chas, HeeJu decided to hide, as her level was low, instead of helping, she might hinder their fight.

 

After HeeJu listened to Emma's confession and finding out that Emma is the source of all this mess, including SeJu's commatose state, death of Marco/Cha/JungHoon/Prof.Cha, and JinWoo's delusional state. HeeJu was very angry and somehow "sacrificed" herself, retrieved the dagger from JinWoo and stabbed Emma with it. HeeJu got wounded of course, but JinWoo was protecting her, so it's not very dangerous for her. 

 

After got stabbed, Emma was looking at the face so similar with her own face, and asking "Why? I just want to live."

 

Why HeeJu can kill Emma? Isn't the rule supposed to be "master level user/NPC can kill master level user/NPC or lower"? This is all because of HeeJu's account is a wild card account. This wildcard account is specifically made by SeJu only for his family members. So, when HeeJu has an account, the game recognized that it is HeeJu and automatically marked her as wild card account. (It is a normal thing in a game development, to have "special accounts" to get backdoor access to certain levels/enemies, so that it is easier for testing, etc)

 

Self-destruction script is inserted to Emma, Emma and all her modified script was removed, this includes the hypnosis state of SeJu, and Fake Marcos/Chas/Fake City Hunter, and JinWoo's delusional state.

 

A game is not supposed to kill a living being, but Emma has acted more than her boundaries.


A few weeks later:

  • JinWoo is declared as innocent in the death of Cha/Prof.Cha;
  • HeeJu is busy with her guitar workshop, she still only creates 1 guitar within few months;
  • SeJu has started physical therapy after being in comma for so long, accompanied by Halmoni/HeeJu; He also entrusted the source code of the game to JinWoo.
  • MinJu is now a trainee preparing for debut;
  • SooJin gets back all Cha HyungSeok's asset as she supposed to;
  • Go Yoora fights with her manager and her manager divulges all her secret, including her deal with Prof.Cha. As JinWoo just doesn't want to deal with her anymore, Go Yoora gets fined only but a very hefty fine;
  • Park SonHo becomes director again after JinWoo's position is reinstated;
  • Choi YangJoo is heartbroken after knowing what Emma is; Choi YangJoo and SeJu meets to discuss and finalized the rule of duel between users;
  • JOne is gearing up to release the clean version of the game without NPC character Emma; This is causing an uproar, as lots of (male) users fall in love with Emma, as Emma is very very pretty; Worried about this, JOne officially issues a statement as Emma's physical feature is taken from the creator's sister image and the game creator has asked for JOne to remove Emma. This news doesn't reduce the uproar, now all users are curious about the "Emma" in real life, they even started group to gather the existence of real-life Emma;
  • JinWoo is very very worried about this, so he asks HeeJu to marry him or at least engaged to automatically remove any future competitors;


One year later:
Living room of current HeeJu's house. JinWoo and SeJu is busy having discussion about new features for a new game. After his physical therapy finished, SeJu was recruited as the head of R&D of JOne. As a genius, SeJu is so happy that he can talk to JinWoo about almost everything. Only JinWoo can keep up to SeJu's train of thoughts. SeJu finds Father/Older brother/Friend figures in JinWoo and JinWoo finds another friend who can challenge him intellectually just like Cha HyeongSeok.
HeeJu, who is sitting beside JinWoo, feels very annoyed, as JinWoo is supposedly having discussion with her about their wedding plan. It has been 1 year, JinWoo was so busy with the release of the game, this caused their wedding plan to progress at a snail-speed. She even thinks to just kidnap her-sexy-CEO and directly brings him to ROM agency (Registry of Marriages).
The TV is on, Music Bank show, debut of a new girl group, Maknae MinJu is cheerfully dancing on the center of the stage.

Halmoni is clapping excitedly while eating tangerines.

1. Ok makes sense, but then why did he log in 145 times? if he was not leveling up, trying to help or was actually evil? I was waiting for some sort of explanation for him having so many logins...

 

About CEO Park's logins... you don't log in just to play the game.  As the acting CEO and the actual CEO after JW was deposed, he would need to log in to the game to see how it's progressing.  When the coders create a new something or other, he would need to log in to see how it actually looks.  Logging in also allows you to see or find other players.  HJ was never an active player or an ally, but she logged in when she wanted to find JW.

Jin Woo's reason is slightly different to use the instance dungeon. He isn't hiding from the police nor from other NPC's. He is what I believe in self inflicted redemption.  The whole Jesus Christ and religious connotations that were referred to in the final episode were implying that he brought this suffering to himself. Although, I am particularly disappointed with the use of religion in this drama because religion is a sensitive topic and should have been handled with care. But anyways. Hence, where SJ chose to hide in the dungeon, JW chose to redeem himself and become the ultimate sacrifice.

 

Oooh, so insightful.  I never thought about it like this.  Probably bc I was too mad about the ending and I had too much going on irl to really think through this drama and its ending.

After a year, Heejoo's undying faith brought back Jinwoo out of his self inflicted redemption

Jinwoo made himself known to let Heejoo know that he is now ready to meet her. :wub::wub:

I liked the finale though i'm a little shocked because of how things happened and mostly because no more episode to look forward to.

 

I liked MoA's rollercoaster ride, so much so that made me wish for a film sequel with HB & PSH.

1. cried a bucket when JW had to stab my ever fave Sec! i just felt the pain... that must have really hurt.

2. believe HJ faith in JW... up to the very end, brought him back to the real world... this i will charge on the "fantasy" view -

3. think when SJ mentioned the so-called "instance dungeon" kept him safe when he was running away from Marco, and that being a master, JW must have gone there to be safe...i think that is where he was hiding too!

4. don't think Emma stab the real JW - though the remains of the bug was there.. i dont know how to explain this, but 

5. agree on someone here that JW cannot be treated as a bug, otherwise, SJ is also a bug therefore the game wont reset.

6. think that SJ could have given more screen time, as an Executive or Consultant of J-One so he could help JW. they for sure will rock!

7. agree also that the ending could have been a little better. even just to see them both on the same frame of the camera, at least let HJ saw JW from a far or a little light where JW stands (comm'on!)

 

Now... 

anyone knows the email add of Netflix??? let's start the petition for the Season 2! 

 

P.S.

Who won on the zombie rally @Kasmic... sorry if that was already posted and i missed. i skipped the review and recap from episode 15... and look like it time jumped here more than 1 year! :lol:

THIS 

YES I mean why would you want kill the person who is going to help you.

The only explanation is that the levels were created way before and inside the game, the master had no real control on game bugs and level difficulty. Still that just makes them stupid.

 

And In Hyun Man is LOOOVEEEE!! 

Highly recommend it. 

ya.. anything by this writer is super questionable..

 

QIH is better?

Tran by YYSY

 

Lol.. did she really think she got the chance to show different emotions?

lol.. poor her.. she is capable of it but don't think drama gave her anything else other than crying

 

AND 7 months..f or THIS?? why?

all they had to do in 95% of the scenes was JW fight and HS walk around and seo here and there

and papa cha look like a meanie.. and park look confused wearing the same suit in every scene

@roswara i love your alternative story, it away more make sense to me than the original story. It could be the best for this drama. couldn't agree more.

annyeong chingus! how's your heart rn? is it ady okay? mine? hmm I guess not yet lol it's still so blue thank you vm

 

since tomorrow, I think about many reasons why they made it as an open ending and show Jin Woo as a silhouette in the end. I try to connect the ending with SJJ interview and my expectation, so I can give up to feel mad and disappointed.

 

however, I love MoA vvvvm I can't take it any other way. that's why my fragile soul broken into pieces when it ends. I can't express my theories rn, so yeah.. maybe later I will, dunno.

 

anyway, I wanna thank all the friends here bcz the first reason why I decided to join this is all of you. read all your thoughts is very entertaining, the convo is always full of colorful feelings. I hope we can meet on another thread someday. I need time against my withdrawal syndrome, till then.. annyeong folks!

Memories of the Alhambra (Alternative Story/Ending)

 

 

Wow, I seriously should have read this before I wrote my own alternate ending lol. I went back and tweaked a tiny bit in my own story to incorporate what you mentioned about the source codes, etc, but ... as I'm not in IT and don't know anything about programming... my story is going to be sci-fi fantastical all the way haha.

 

For those of you who don't mind reading another version, check my ending out: https://www.wattpad.com/684928959-hee-ju's-story

 

I wrote it quickly without much time to edit so... apologies for any editing issues! Also, I used "instant" dungeon instead of "instance" dungeon like it was translated in the Netflix subs because I'm pretty sure the hangul at the bottom of the screen actually says"instant" and not "instance"...
