[Drama 2018-2019] Priest, 프리스트

Recommended Posts

@AlexandraReid Honestly at this point (No offense) but it’s the judgement that counts. Films/Dramas are meant to be watched and judged, this is how we make business.As an audience we can’t really do anything but to judge. :lol:  So it’s pretty normal to see knetz doing their thing. We all have our personal preferences, welp the knetz might say it in the worst possible way ever but yeah. You get the point:sweatingbullets:

 

The problems mostly comes from the storyline, everything is kind of in a rush. The buildup and the three acts are a bit..off. Like how we started Act 2 immediately after the episode begins with the mother who died thus changing OSM life (Leaving least amount of introductions)  and transits to Adulthood. With no other explanations.

 

I believe that there are more stuff that they will release soon, but as an audience I kind of get why they are complaining. There isn’t really an explanation to most of the things we have currently saw. Yet. Cause episode (pilot) and 2 are like your introduction to that realm so it’s normally expected to give a certain explanation to things. But what we were given were questions. Too much questions..It’s a bit too much to carry at this stage. :sweatingbullets:

I like to see what this is all about because Park Yong Woo is in it and I haven't seen him for ages but I have no idea where to watch this drama. :(

Watching first episode and the scene at the beginning already gives me goose pimples.

 

Edit:

Watched the first two episodes and I think it is worth watching. Although I am not sure if I will watch it live.

Not as scary as The Guest (or maybe The Guest has desensitised me...haha)

 

The main leads are rocking their roles (and how does Yeon Woo Jin act so young and naive as a new-ish priest?)

 

Again, I see no signs of romance in this series but I learnt a new word! energumen!

 

PS. A good sign for me is that at the beginning of the episode, I got goosepimples and at the end of the episode as well.

Where does OCN find all these great supporting actors?

I have a obsession with Protagonist turning evil :ph34r:

 

I have not watch EP 3 yet, but from the trailer it looks like OSM is being affected by something? Oooo. Interesting.

 

I’m i the only one who loves to see Protagonist becoming affected by the forces that they are fighting and turn against his friends? I honestly find it very attractive :lol: if ever OSM gets possessed, I will have an overly happy reaction that I will tear up. (I did that for TG when HP got possessed)

 

Me: *Tears*

@sushilicious that's very unhealthy for our brain. Lol

I'm more old fashioned.

I prefer the hero fighting the evil and win without hurting himself/herself and still giving me the triumph feeling.

 

It's midnight here so I'll watch the latest episode in the morning. Don't think I dare to watch any previews or snippets at this time. :sweatingbullets:

@Dramanoona @sushilicious have you all watch episode 3 already?

 

Thank goodness for second chance!

I'm beginning to see the drama in another light.

 

Some of my why's are slowly disappearing as I watched episode 3.

I'm seeing this drama as something new and high technology exorcism. :lol:

Must cast aside the old fashioned exorcism and adapt to the "new".

 

But 1 thing I have to say, they sure have very irritating doctors. Lol

First was Dr Ham. But she is better in episode 3 although still annoying.

 

Now Dr Kim has replaced her.

I didn't know doctors are so free to check cctv and investigate instead of quickly replacing the shifts of the missing colleagues.  :lol:

Yes, finalllllllly Priest.

I liked the 3rd ep better, they seemed to have settled into the story now and it was gripping. This was way better than the first and second ep. See drama, how nice things have become when people do less and less annoying things. I don't know why it is a trope in such dramas to make the lead (most probably FL) a busybody. That Dr.Kim thing made me roll my eyes again but guess they needed such a scene to raise the stakes. 

 

Is there romance in this drama?  I saw Dr.Ham and SM together in what seemed like a dream sequence. I don't much care for the doctors in the hospital except for Dr.Ham's sunbae. He seems intelligent and would like to see him having an active role in this drama (please don't be annoying though)

BTW, I am not an expert in this field, but how is it possible for SM to enter MS's subconscious like that. When he gets hypnotised, isn't he going to his own subconscious otherwise don't they need to include MS also in this process.  Is the subconscious something like an underworld outside an individual's mind and body??? 

Yes, I have watched inception but if they were going for something like that they should have explained the rules better. Some equipment or situation that allows one person to enter another person's subconscious without their knowledge. Because till before that scene we were in a normal drama world with some supernatural thing going on not a science fiction.

Maybe they will explain it in the later eps. 

Also what did that psychologist saw in MS and WJ's scan reports. Can these things be detected in MRI scans and all that, I mean do they make a biological change in a person? (this is not a complaint just curious)

 

Also, I wish they could show possession happening outside the hospital too.

I guess I could help you answer these questions.

 

I think it’s just a subconscious thing to cheat OSM.

 

As for the psychologist. On the scan, there is actually a face on the scan. I saw it on the doctor’s brain scan.

 

@mrsj3n Yes, I’ve just finished EP 3. 

 

Pretty Good, at least now we can feel like the ball is actually rolling.

 

Now...On to Children of Nobody haha.

 

 

 

I see a romance going on...

(Ps. Hope that we won’t get romance, cause why?! In a Medical Exorcism drama?!?!?!?)

I just finished live streamed episode 4.

Annndddd... 

Spoiler

there is kissing scene! And that underwater kiss scene is so beautiful :wub: (though at a second thought, it's creepy actually, considering it happens in the world the devil created :wacko:)

 

I am going to keep watching this. OSM and Dr Ham seems to have crossed path in the past and they seem to have lost their memory about that. I think they have met in Venezuela. I have no objection for some romance scene even though they just insert it in the other world the devil created or flashback or dream or something. It lighten the plot a bit since it has been straining so much on the possession and exorcism. (I feel drained watching the non-stop exorcisms over the four episodes T__T)

 

Talking about the hypnosis / subconscious exorcism they performed in the drama, this is the first time I have seen such exorcism performed, where another person going into subconscious enter the other person subconscious and perform exorcism there. Never seen it in real life it is done in such a way (those who have known me from The Guest forum would know that I have real life experience witnessing several exorcisms). Hypnosis itself needs expertise on the subject to perform it correctly, else it would go astray. They might coined both hypnosis and exorcism based on some hypothesis in the exorcism subject for the plot convenience, since the devil seems to dwell into people's dream or subconscious. 

 

However, it is true that the other form of possession is where the devil "play" in the unconscious possessed person's subconscious mind and draw the person to enter the other world they created (I am saying this based on the experience told by the possessed for such case). However, the world they entered was not as "humanely" as this drama portrayed. According to one of them, it was rather extreme (scary is an understatement) where she was attacked and chased by beasts (black wolves-like) in a world with no ends, no space, no distance, no sense of dimensional and she just run and run until she heard the voice of the exorcist and follow accordingly to get out. All this kind of cases I have known of, the demon was sent by another person to the possessed to torture his/her mind (mostly due to jealousy, anger, greed and what'snot). The possessed does not show physical violence or voice change, but unconscious with some physical reaction to what he/she experiencing in the subconscious mind. 

 

Regarding the MRI scan, yes it is a face detected on the screen. The common understanding of demonology across different religion is that, demons can manifest itself in whatever form to human naked eyes. In Islamic belief, demons (termed as Djinn in Islam) is one of the 3 intelligent creatures (Human, Angels, Djinn), where they are created from smokeless flame (some argued that, due to this fact, demons have some kind of energy, and can be detected with some tools). They live in other dimension than human, and human can't see them except they manifest themselves to other form that can be seen by human (that's where many kind/names of ghosts come from).

 

The premise of exorcism in this drama is a bit sophisticated. The origin of that "thing" is still unknown. Its connection with both OSM and Dr Ham is also still unknown. I think the demon might somehow connected to OSM since the first episode seems to suggest that OSM was psychic, but in what way they are related, that's still unknown (it's not like it is obsessing over OSM's body or what like The Guest, but the demon seems to keep reminding him of something).  What is known of is that it is not yet banished and jumping from one person to another. Which means, it is quite crafty, superior and malicious to even torture to the mind level (where the possessed would still remember what is happening). Even Priest Moon is worried and nervous thinking about it. 

Haa~~ I don't want to fry my brain yet.. :weary:

 

Although this drama does not make me eagerly waiting for weekend to come, but I will keep watching the plot development.

So, I am going to linger around here until the end.  :P

[Priest] Ep 3 spoilers, Yeon Woo Jin x Jung Yoo Mi x Park Yong Woo
 
 
priet.png

 

 
Article: Naver 'Priest' Yeon Woo Jin goes into Park Jung Won's dream, he meets his mother who was possessed by evil spirits there 

 1. [+48,-5]

When I watched The Guest at first, it was kind of confusing too. Priest will be fine too, right...? Is it exorcism or is it zombies? The story is a little confusing. 

2. [+40,-2]
The story is interesting, but it's a little slow.. It doesn't suck me in completely, it's a pity. 


3. [+52,-20]
But for how long are we going to keep comparing this with The Guest? Just watch The Guest again. 


4. [+34,-11]
An hour passed by so quickly today because of Yeon Woo Jin's great acting. I'll look forward to the interesting story and a faster development tomorrow. 


5. [+25,-6]
All of the characters are frustrating. Jung Yoo Mi's pronunciation.. Seriously... Her character is frustrating too, and acting is..


6. [+19,-7]
I like exorcism genres.. But I can't bring myself to watch this drama. Yeon Woo Jin and Jung Woo Mi are too cringey. It would be worth watching if Park Yong Woo leads this drama on 

his own. 

7. [+12,-0]
I thought Park Yong Woo is the lead, but he has too little screen time. It's better if they reduce screen time for the female lead and increase screen time for the possessed, and exorcisms. 


8. [+11,-4]
Are they trying to follow Inception.... 


9. [+15,-0]
Just watch it... It's just... The 3rd episode.....

Article: Naver 'Priest' Yeon Woo Jin saves Jung Yoo Mi from possessed Park Jung Won  

1. [+45,-9]
I'm a horror genre maniac, but it seems like I was expecting too much... It's boring and draggy. The female doctors are going around acting like detectives, and the story is going nowhere.. The exorcisms are really done awfully. Today's episode was a mix of zombies and Insidious... This is a drama that I was looking forward to, but it's really disappointing. 


2. [+26,-15]
This is really interesting. 


3. [+6,-2]
Stories like these are unique, so it's worth watching. But the ads are too much, aren't they adding too much of it?? It breaks the flow.. 


4. [+4,-0]
As a horror maniac..... It's a huge disappointment. 


5. [+4,-3]
It's fun. 


6. [+11,-11]
Today's episode is interesting~ 


7. [+7,-8]
I didn't realize how much time had passed.

WOAHHHH.

 

So they (EH and SM) knew each other before this?!! I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING!

 

Now I'm really curious - I'm assuming something happened between them in Venezuela...? 

 

The dream was really beautiful btw - from the wedding dress to the teary-eyed realisation and THE KISS :wub:

 

Also, why am I so sure there's some (important) backstory to the other priest? And the team in general? Like who are they, how did they join the team, what is the common link??

 

So many question but that's just a sign of a good script so YES I'm here for it :lol: New Sat/Sun drama!!

 

PS. Haters gonna hate.

I have not watched the episode yet (Waiting for Subs)

 

But I find that subconscious exorcism is pretty cool :D especially the part where OSM drew the cross on the doc’s arm and it burns, that tension though (oooo)

 

To me, I prefer not to have kissing scene cause....

Spoiler

I Forever Alone

giphy.gif

:joy:

But anyways, just on personal preferences, I would normally watch dramas that are heavy in content and would often shy away from light ones like romance, comedy etc. It’s just me :) 

 

That kiss scene seems so seductive from Dr Ham. (I would say this should be how she was before her memories got erased. You know, when you lose your memories your personality will change. I wonder how OSM was like? Hm....)

 

But if I put this thing aside I would say that what I’m seeing in this series currently, it’s starting to fly now. Of cause in the drama world, things happen and there is always a reason to it. (Example: There is always a reason why they are all in a group. Why they are there.) 

 

The Similarities between OSM and Dr Ham of losing their parents and thus they meet the older priest for example. I guess I won’t burn my mind much on this series, just let it Do it’s thing to explain it too us:grin:

Heol. I feel like netizens love to complain about the female actresses in dramas.

Give Jung Yoo Mi a chance! I am not her die-hard fan but I believe in giving the actress time to get into the character.

I suppose it is unfair to compare the Guest with Priest (two different dramas) so I will try my best to view this drama objectively.

@Dramanoona I think it’s the expectations in fans. Probably had said this before, because fans think that they fall on the same genre that’s why they have expectations that it would be like guest.If Priest comes out first, guest comes next they would compare it too. :mellow:

 

I think knetz expectations too high:sweatingbullets:, they will probably not understand how it feels like to spend many months on a production from Pre-Pro-Post to get this out there and get shot down (been there done that), with just words and viewership ratings. But I guess, it’s normal because Films/Dramas are meant to be watched and commented.

 

Welp, Priest is still going strong. 

 

I giggled when The older priest slaps OSM’s face. Their chemistry is really funny sometimes. Then we have Dr Kim..Man why go the extra mile to follow the trio, let them do their things.

OCN.... why do you use the same mood music in  Ep 3 as The Guest (when it was a flashback to 1995)

I had to get this off my chest.
