[Drama 2018-2019] Memories of the Alhambra | Recuerdos de la Alhambra 알함브라 궁전의 추억

Recommended Posts

Guys i watched the episode 1 in netflix. OMG for someone who doesn't play any game at all, this was AWESOMEEE. There were no boring moments at all from beginning to end. And YES PSH scenes were less, but it's WORTH. As it's AR related drama, it's must to explain about it to the audience, that's why the screen time of PSH is less. But it's okay i loved it completely. For me the last 15 mins were DAEBAK. I can feel there chemistry already. I am rewatching again <3

Just watched ep 1 and I'm already completed onboard and intrigued.

 

The thrilling second half more than made up for the rather slow first half and answered a few of the questions that were asked.

 

As expected, there were many beautiful shots of Granada and the animation with the sword fighting was great.

 

The funniest bits were Hyun Bin swinging his AR sword in the bathroom while a guy was peeing behind lol and him having to go back to the bar everytime he died to get his sword back.

 

Also, why was the toilet clogging scene so long? :joy:

Just finished watching it, and when the other Song Jae Jung fan in my house comes home, I'm watching it again. It's awesome so far! While I love fantasy, I'm not normally into stories about computer games, but there are some real life tensions that look very promising. (At the end, I was like, Shin Hye: just HIT him with that mop! HARD.) Can't wait to see how it all unfolds. 

 

(The opener, though... You have messy black hair, and glasses. You are on a train in Europe, and it suddenly goes black and stormy. Rain and fog cloud the window.... You're a wizard, Jung Se Joo! Beware of Dementors! Lol.)

I watched ep 1, signing on for the whole series. What am I going to do, I've already decided to watch Encounter/Boyfriend and now this.

 

By the way, Mr. A the private investigator... he looks like the main lead of Terius Behind Me, So Ji Sub. So which actor is he? I searched but I can't find him on the cast list.

The private investigator guy seemed like the male lead from Prison playbook to me. But I'm not sure either. His name is not on the cast list. Mmmm. 

 

@bedifferent can't wait for you to watch and share your thoughts on the first ep.

All I gotta say is what’s up with Hyun Bin with stairs and elevators? Lol. When he was complaining about the stairs in the hostel and why there’s no elevators, it reminded me so much of his character in Secret Garden. I didn’t expect this drama to be a video game but I kind of like it. It’s different but interesting so far. Plus, I am already falling in love with the ending song. Anyone knows the artist yet?

The rating is good.

 

 

I was scared because its new genre that is not common in Korea nor their typical taste + we were not promoted heavily in Korea + there is Melon award ( BTS,etc performance) I wished for good start like 5% but #MemoriesofTheAlhambra first ep reached 7.5% and 9.1% in Seoul ! So proud :blush:

 

#MemoriesOftheAlhambra the highest peak is 8.5%!!!

TV: Memories of the Alhambra (Pilot)

Article: 'Memories of the Alhambra' Hyun Bin catches on to Park Shin Hye's worth

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+524, -19] It's a drama that will get gamers excited. The problem is that once it switches to reality, you look like a crazy person in the middle of the street ㅋㅋ

2. [+517, -25] Shows how crazy gaming addiction can be

3. [+395, -57] I was confused at first but kept watching in awe out of Park Shin Hye's face and fell for the drama towards the end. Pretty cool drama.

4. [+63, -8] With all the dramas that reuse the same plots over and over again, we should be glad that there are still some creative dramas out there like this one. I hope it does well to give hope for more creative dramas in the future.

5. [+47, -6] Great CG, great acting~ and the plot is new and fresh!

6. [+40, -5] It gets better towards the end!! I think tomorrow will even better!! But I think if this game were to ever exist in real life, it'd cause a lot of accidents.. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+39, -5] The scriptwriter's a genius... the plot's super fresh. Hyun Bin makes every scene look like a CF cut. Park Shin Hye's pretty but am I the only one who found her crying scene... cringe...

8. [+37, -9] Now that's a drama, enough with the same old stuff, this is great

1. [+3,190, -203] It's really fresh! Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye are crazy pretty... I will be tuning in tomorrow!

2. [+2,022, -132] It feels daebak to see the scenes I imagined in the novel come true to real life ㅎㅎ I watched the first episode out of anticipation for the writer and she exceeded my expectations ㅜㅜ

3. [+1,671, -67] Such an amazing idea... the plot is so fresh

4. [+852, -86] What a fresh drama

5. [+801, -86] I can feel this going daebak~~

6. [+624, -37] Honestly, it's really fun. It was boring at first because of the lack of explanation but it got better towards the end. It's all so fresh - not just another romance story. Hyun Bin really seems to have taken care of himself, he looked so good.

7. [+537, -37] If you still don't get the drama after watching till the end, it's better that you don't bother watching at all. It all comes together in the end... Chanyeol's the game creator, Hyun Bin's playing the game, and he realizes he needs Park Shin Hye for the game... how do you not understand that...

8. [+392, -22] This is daebak!! I was focusing so hard ㅋㅋㅋ I felt like I was playing the game with them ㅋㅋ what a fresh shock to know that a drama like this exists

@kokodus @stroppyse Gahhh, Binnie looks great!  So handsome :heart: His skin is almost flawless, given he's in close up so much, the makeup and genes are almost unfair.  I like how he looks right now, not too lean, the cheekbones are not as prominent.  The smile and dimples still can slay... lol.  I watched the first episode on big TV screen, he's so charming :lol:  I love already how the drama allows him to bring out the comedic chops which I think he's really good at (the timing) and the bona fide action star.  Feel almost like I am watching a movie, not a TV drama.  Yes, Netflix/tvN is dripping money with the CGI and special effects.  Read that Netflix used the Game of Thrones crew for the medieval/VR game characters. (BTW, hi @122am glad to see you here)

The race for the ~ 1 trillion+ won game has started.

 

First episode was good, the characters and players were slowly introduced.  I miss Barcelona so much after seeing it on screen. PD Ahn (of Secret Forest) did justice to those back alleys, cobblestone streets, beautiful Spanish architecture.  He's a fan of light/shadow and especially interesting angles... the train journey, traveling through forests and in/out of night/day reminds me a lot of what he did with his previous drama.  I also like how he kept the warm brown color of Spain, the dimly lit streets at night are exactly how I remember of the Old World cities. I can't tell you how much I love the mosaic tiling of Spain so is a joy seeing them everywhere (even in the bathrooms).  Wonder if we will get to see Gaudi's works in the drama.  Overall, I had high hope PD Ahn will direct thrillers, moreover action scenes, right.  Was not disappointed.  I love that Hyun Bin is so the right fit for this type of fantasy futuristic action.  His sword fighting was fluid.  The VR fighting must be the challenge that he wanted, having to act with imagination.  

 

Is it only me or Chanyeol/Sun Joo's running opening sequence looks similar to An Woo-Yeon's in drama Circle?  LOL  Maybe it's the curly hair and round glasses... I have flash backs to that drama. His sequence is a little long though, a good way to promote tourism and spotlighting the city, perhaps the deal Netflix cut with Barcelona. hehe

 

PSH is cute! I hope her Hee-joo is no push over when Jin-woo starts to dial up the charm. I hope she has more willpower than me, when is faced with that smile and those dimples :lol:  Jin-woo's character has 2 ex-wives right?  The explosive personality, dominant in business men (think Elon Musk lol), is not easy to deal with as a partner.  There's a lot underneath the handsome exterior to this CEO... He must have some positive traits since Sun-joo wanted to sell the game to him. Can't wait to know more about him.  So far, he's curt and expects 110% + blood from his secretary :D

 

The inside contact... how can Jin-woo trust him not be a double agent?  There's too much money at stakes here. ^^

 

Did anyone post these, for the upcoming episodes?
