Anyway, come rain or shine, the finale is this weekend. :) And, frankly, the fact that there is nary a CGI gorilla in sight in this drama makes it a huge improvement over HB's last drama. :D 

 

That gorilla was a nightmare.. :ph34r:

Yeah Im still bitter, I cannot chill I thought I have but I its not working. Sorry but not sorry writer SJJ youve just made a real bitter anti-fan in me. Not that she cares. One word for her and I'll end it at that is "disrespectful" not just to PSH but all the casts and crew. Her lack of trusts in them makes me boil. I feel like HJ walking into a battle field of NPCs snippers without any armour or weapon... doomed for hurt then game over.  I cant believe thats how she wants women to be perceived as...:vicx::rage:

 

I shouldve posted these updates earlier but crap happens

 

To a more "respectful" interviews from child actress Lee Re - MinJoo

From her interview, she said she really enjoyed filming and was sadden that it ended so quick. She loved working with all the casts particularly PSH, HB and even Chanyeol. Their care  and support for her made her very comfortable, free and natural in her role.  She really admired the talent, beauty and charisma of both leads including PSH and HB.  Furthermore she appreciates PSH for not only her care/ hugs but also support and advice so she too like PSH can later breakout of her child-actress roles. 

 

Like always LR can bring smiles to my face.

I believe if we watched every level that JW has passed, there will be 96 kills to CHS.

Park Hoon is starring in a new drama - Haechi (SBS)...yep no longer a bloody zombie.

 

Spoiler

 

As for recapping, Im not sure - I dont think I can enjoy it. I got 0 anticipation for the finale. SJJ interviews has just threw out all my theories of any chances of an OTP happy ending plus making me think that all their time together was "forced" blah!!! I cant believe I said that.  I genuinely believed that it was not so. I still do but those interviews prove otherwise...  Heol! head-crazy-rabbit-emoticon.gif?129279377

I hope this wont affect the ratings as so far there is yet to be any (apart from the OST album news) news to undo what she did.  It is so strange to see that for a big budget drama, all the hype of a finale seems to be gone flat. At times you would hear the casts getting together for the finale, reward vacation or whatever but to date - nothing. Not even spoiler pics for the upcoming eps. ...maybe.  Just critics of I told you so posts and ugh! I feel so burnt and totally disgusted. get-out-crazy-rabbit-emoticon.gif?129279  I feel so bad for all the casts and crew whom worked so hard for the drama. :heartbreak:

 

Its SATURDAY in my world...those Zombie profile pics can now disappear. No need to haunt Soompi now ;) Not sure about poll 2 answer - anyone still eager lol!....<_<

The writer is really is something for a big budget drama and the casts and staffs who worked so hard . She just spoilt everything . She started it well that I thought it will be a masterpiece. Imagine the whole world watch. But I still hope that it’s a good ending . As I said I’m holding to Hyun bin’s interview. May SJJ interview was way before the romance started. So when she saw the amazing chemistry between the two she changed her plot. Coz she also said she was surprised to see that side of PSH. So I have hope that the ending is something magical and all questions will be answered. So let’s keep supporting until the end for all the casts and the staffs.

The drama could have been a good three-hour, engaging, fast-paced movie. And I would have left the movie theater with an 'Oh My God..what did I just see' face! I  feel that writer has some issues with detailed scripts. It's a common phenomena'; many people are not good explainers or descriptive as such and expect the listeners to make out the context. Drama/play-writing needs detailing. If the protagonist has blonde hair then the play-wright has to put in a specific detail that, 'she has blonde hair'. That said, I still believe MOA could have been more than just 16 hours drama. The concept was deliberately limited to a perimeter that was just not enough.

The pain of PSH fans. I can feel that. That said, even writer-SJJ was surprised that PSH could give a remarkable performance despite having a tight, male centric script. This was a challenge for her as an actor and I think looking back, she must feel proud of her work. Also, she herself mentioned that the possibility working with Hyun Bin was one of her reasons of signing the drama and she did gain experience by working along side HB; that's an added bonus. 

Another thing that stood out in the interview was that the romance was an after thought. Now it makes sense as to why people were particularly disappointed with the love-angle; because it never was part of the original script. So did the writer budge under channel's/producers/sponsor's pressure..maybe yes! Although, I never found any issues in the romance department, as I have it said many times before. It was more of mature love and I accepted that. Now the funny thing is, the writer herself seems to be unconvinced with the emotional rational of JW and HJ. It's ironic because we the audience here have endorsed it being as a slow-burn development. Maybe because she never intended to include 'love' between HJ and JW in her script and when she was forced to, she couldn't accept it whole-heartedly.

One thing I am not sure about is, why is she being so honest and straight forward? She is probably the first writer in my entire life of Kdrama binging as well as being a Literature student, that I found a story-teller giving explanations of her story-telling. To an author, if he/she has written a red apple as being blue in color, then it is blue. Period. It is for us critics, to call upon the author that no, an apple is always red. There is no need of giving explanations and interviews, you can't make everyone like you.

I still don't have bitter feelings regarding the drama. I was sold to the writer with only the concept of Augmented game reality. She bought me with that. It was something that I had seen in movies but never in a drama. Hence, everything else never bothered me as such. Could she have improved her work? Of course, yes. There is a reason we don't get a full 100 on 100 in creative writing, because there is always room for improvement. If I was being paid for critically analysing the drama, I would have made loads of money(I am a nitpicker) But since I took the drama as it was told to me, I just went with the flow. 

And I still do pray that HB and PSH get re-casted, with a cheesy, lollipop, diabetic romance. I will watch that like a little girl..:D

I choose ti ignore what SJJ said in lats interview. I just want to finish the last 2 episodes, even if she said there is virus or she made the story from male perspective etc etc. I still believe this will end with happy ending.

Honestly I've been quiet  these past few days just reading everyone's comments without stating my opinion. 

I feel like a lot of these being said here are unfair.  I mean PSH knew what kind of drama she was going to play in and so did everyone else.  I am not going to lie..I started watching this drama because of Hyun bin and the writer.  It is not easy for someone to write this genre of drama while using plainly her imagination so I think a lot of criticism the writer has been receiving is unfair.  Sure this drama has a lot of product ads and its consistent but thats because they sponsored for this huge budget film to happen. 

 

I do get why people are upset with the writer's interview and her opinion on her very OWN script.  She should have waited till the end of drama to explain her side of story and her reasoning behind writing it. I get all the upset reaction of people. Me personally did not feel wronged cause I agreed with majority of stuff she said...I understood where she came from. 

I agree JW has to spend time to deal with his guilt and action on what happened to Hyeong-seok.  I really don't think he has the luxury to date and enjoy a new romance in his life.  Hee Ju is that innocence missing puzzle in his life which he never had...people always used him and loved his money or his brain before really caring about himself.  HJ is the only one who ever cared about him and is the last thing he is holding onto but that doesn't mean that should be his main priority. 

I know a lot of you might be mad at my comment right now or come back with maybe somewhat mean comments but I had to say what I felt was right from some peoples perspective and defend the writer somehow.:)

This is not the first time I am seeing this kind of reaction from viewers and there is nothing wrong with that... I think stars like Hyun Bin who have been in the industry for a long time had a fair share of going through mixed reactions from people, and Shin Hye of course too.

I'm gonna give one final FINAL thought, and then I'm dropping this issue, I followed this drama for awhile to just be left with bitterness even before the end, and I don't want to be bitter, I'll only accept disappointment after the end. 

The way the writer spoke of the romance angle, although it pissed me off, I can't help but wonder why ? if the romance was an afterthought for her, an angle she decided to add only after and doesn't even believe in it, the WHY THE HELL BOTHER ??? Even if PSH was on board, she could've worked on her character better, give more depth to Emma, and if she couldn't then make PSH as a cameo appearance, or don"t cast someone as popular and talented as PSH bring some other rookie then, she could've stuck to her original story, or not even make it a drama if she herself believes it should be a movie. again I ask WHY BOTHER ?? 

 

All in all, eve other parts of the needed some work, and it wasn't just the romance ' although I'm pretty satisfied with it, the director and the OTP made it believable enough) I still like the show ( to an extent ) and I don't regret watching it and following it week by week, it had great potential, the last episodes will show us if it reached at least more than half of that potential, which is why I'm excited for tomorrow and the day after it !!! And with this I promise to never speak of this issue again.

I'll repeat it again, PSH and HB need to work on another drama, directors in korea don't overlook all that chemistry.
