  1. @faithinme laraYes of course I know it happens all over the world, One of my best friend, her mother is older than her father...but in most countries it's few cases and not very common and I live in Europe and have lived in the US as well.... for instance the case that you mentioned of Miss Korea 1997 would be very rare where I'm from and it would be something highlighted in the news...
  2. @wangnyeo @blackberrypie Pre-Kdrama I wasnt a fan of noona dongsaeng relationships either, but after watching Kdramas for a while I've come to accept even in dramas where they dont really highlight the age difference, the women are often older than the males....I feel like there's usually two categories of male leads either the really young ones or the older mature ones...and they usually pair the older mature ones with really young female leads.... now I'm so used to it I just overlook it and enjoy the dramas...I wonder if its common in korea for women to date younger men...
  3. @bebebisous33I totally agree with what you said, as I posted earlier I was also in the same situation... I didnt go in totally depending on the exHB but after a few years in, things happened that put me in the situation of depending on him and because at the time I was naive and so trusting of him, I never thought that could happen to us...sometimes life happens...well, well ,well I got blindsided, and it was a huge wake up call, like DY I put the HB and children first and neglected myself.... I look back at that time as a lesson and I've grown so much because of the experience, it did take time to climb out of the situation and I still have some more climbing to do but such is life... Funny enough I have an ex boss like the interviewer, she is not bitter though she is nice, but she sacrificed for her career and never got married or had children.... no matter how hard these past few years have been, I would never trade my kids for a career...now a days, jobs come and go...it's rare to find people who stay at one place until they retire... I think women should learn to put themselves first and do what makes them happy....it's hard to have it all, but you can try to prioritize those things that matter the most to you and that after all is said and done...are priceless... @DhakraI knew you would say that but I was hoping you'd stick around for something else LMAO @lsglmh welcome I love his wardrobe in this too, it makes him look even hotter...with or without the shirt still HOT @Ameera Ali and hopefully you'll stick around for more than just the abs LMAO
  4. @bairama haha if you're into romantic comedy I think you'll enjoy it it's from the writer of I need romance and discovery of love and producer of Life of mars... so far so good, as you can see "abs" lol but seriously I enjoyed it so far... @angelangie @Sarang21 see they know what they're doing...because ABS @cenching lol lol lol @Matilda_Anne haha yes invite more ab lovers me three, Im also here to heal after THAT drama, so far the memories are starting to fade....
  5. haha thanks for sharing @ibru I was watching this scene and I just started laughing because it made me think of the ab's gang, where are you all at?@supergal99 @sushilicious @Ameera Ali @staygold @Sarang21 @dotonly @cenching @USAFarmgirl @ebullient @Matilda_Anne @mouse007 @Sejabin @bedifferent @stroppyse @lynne22 @joonminfan @LSGLMH_88 @Dhakra @Jemrie @bairama @ihyw @vangsweetie637 @MarJo_Lei @Learry @angelangie @Jillia @booha @ktcjdrama @stargazer187 @UnniSarah @shutthatdoor @triplemI know I didnt participate in posting in that forum but I was lurking and it was the highlight of my day Pre-Military abs
  6. I started watching this drama without so much of background info except, being here for LJS... So far I love it and I can totally relate to the female lead...because I've been in her situation...when I left my Husband because he had been cheating among other reasons... I had been home for a few years after graduating because I had our son soon after I graduated, when my son started school it became hard for me to find a job and I had to do a part time job in retail as well as cleaning, although I had 2 degrees, I actually had to downgrade my CV to get these jobs just to make ends meet, it took me 4 years to find a full time professional job and when I finally found a full time professional job, all my colleagues were in their mid to late 20s and all my bosses are younger than me...I turn 36 this year... I could also relate with her struggle of not having enough money and having to provide....I actually started watching Kdrama as an escape from my RL which had become so overwhelming...it's really hard in the work force for women, if you take time off to be with the kids you struggle with playing catch up with your career and if you try to do both of course its hard to juggle both..to all the mothers and esp all the single mothers out there HWAITING side note: I already have second lead syndrome
  7. @roswarathank you your alternative story/ending makes so much more sense and has given me the peace to finally move on....
  8. 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....
  9. 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... 2. I mean the only part I can justify is the money part...after a game was so lethal that it killed so many people...Park knows this info even though no one else does and even the creator of the game SJ has no clear explanation and JW the CEO of the company has disappeared I would not risk launching the game to the public no matter how tempting it is...Park witnessed how this game literally tortured JW and turned their whole world up side down....He's like I launch the game and I retire...whatever happens I dont care.... From what I understood, creating an instance dungeon is a special ability that a Master has...so SJ created it because he was a Master and now JW has the ability to create it because he is the new master....
  10. So Guys I usually avoid coming in and reading the live recaps until I've watched the subbed episode...and like many of you after watching the end...I couldn't believe it, I was literally asking myself Is this it? So I came here and reading all your reactions at least gave me a good laugh and kept my spirits up.... A lot of things didn't make sense to me like.... 1. I was actually surprised when CEO Park logged in the game...and it was his 145th login...what does that mean? he knew of the zombies and had also seen the zombies and NPCs? he could also see Dr. Cha? He also played the game? I was waiting for an explanation.... 2. After everyone had died as a result of the game, why would CEO Park accept for the game to be released???? what would ensure the safety of the users this time around? and what would ensure that the bug will not somehow appear again because of something between the new users like what happened to Marco and SJ? 3. If JW decided to stay in the game's dungeon like SJ what was his reason for this? SJ stayed there because it was too dangerous and he was scared of Zombie Marco...but at this point all the bugs had been deleted and it was now "safe" right? no more Zombie Dr Cha etc...unless he is somehow stuck in there and if he is stuck does it mean he is waiting for someone to come "rescue" him? 4. I know someone attempted to explain this but why wasnt Zombie Marco deleted as a bug? or were the only bugs deleted the ones related to Zinu? Now for my opinion...I really think the writer had a great idea but had no clear ending or resolution in her mind...she was just trying to piece things together week after week. I also think that she was trying too hard to outsmart the viewers with twists but in the end it was way too much for even herself to handle...I picture her thinking of all the explanations us viewers will come up with then coming up with something even more far fetched...I also think she wants so much to be recognized as a writer who does something outrageous and simultaneously breaks all the rules, a rebel, I think she identifies this with being creative and she is also trying to outdo each of her previous projects when it comes to the WOW factor of mind boggling experience...hence the endless use of flashbacks and the abrupt shocking open ended scene with no clear explanation...I don't think she is scared of the criticism of the viewers at all but is actually anticipating it and is probably what she wants to be known for... What I didnt like about ep 16...why she had to show HJ going to the church multiple times...after seeing her going there twice we get it, she is still looking for JW and is hopeful....she didnt need to drag that scene for way too long or perhaps she should've made it a bit fast... I know people didnt want to see the ex-wives but I guess she was trying to tie up all the ends of everyone's life EXCEPT she didn't tie the end/story of the most important person we've been following since the beginning JW...we actually just got to assume what happened to him, but no clear explanation from him..except in ep 15 when he said that was his end....also why didn't SJ tell us what actually happened from his point of view??? I mean the explanation we got thus far was from JW's assumption....or did he? but I missed it? As of the romance, I'm not going to complain much or criticize much because after the first kiss I had already given up on the development of the romance and when I saw the writer's final interview I didnt expect much...I actually think the writer did the interview then because she knew how disappointed we will all be...and decided to do her interview before we see the ending possibly her people told her to do that as a PR move to save her from the angry fans... nonetheless...because of my low expectations I wasnt expecting much but I do think she did HJ a very big disservice...I mean this guy was really leading her on...and now she has to just sit around and wait for a guy who she hasnt really dated and there is really no promise of commitment...if this was real life...she is really wasting her youth in the name of "Love"...I have said this a few times but I will say it again, I honestly do not see why JW deserves the type of loyalty that he is getting from HJ to me its very unrealistic but hey...and IMO this is due to the lack of bonding between the two....I know people will try to say they bonded when she took care of him etc, but IMO it wasnt enough of them actually getting to know each other, it was more of her supporting him while he tries to survive I'm more understanding after reading the writer's interview..she has no investment in this relationship and that's why it's really not realistic...so let's say that JW is stuck in the game somehow...and HJ puts on the lens..what will she do now? is she going to play the game and try to release him? will she ask for her brother's help? her character has been so helpless in this aspect...JW tried to survive to save himself and SJ but who will save him??? I guess that goes back to the Jesus symbolism? the writer is sure mixing a lot of religion theology from islam to christianity..I remember her using the church and cross in "Nine" as well Ok finally if I was told to describe MOA I would describe it as Memories = lots of Flashbacks, AR + Zombies, Thunder/Lightning and the tune of a guitar, A woman constantly crying for her lover Finally thank you all for making this forum a fun place with your theories and jokes... Sorry for such a long write up...I have been a bit quiet because I realized my views of this drama don't really align with most of the people who regularly post here so I didn't want to ruin the fun...but since this was the final episode I decided to do my final analysis... I usually don't post so much here unless a drama captivates me with mystery so for now I will say... annyeong chingus...until we meet again in another drama.
  11. I think the reason no one is complaining about his running is because he needs it for survival, it's obvious if he doesn't run he is DEAD...however, IMO the reason why people are complaining about the crying is because in some scenes the emotional connection has not been built up enough to justify the crying...Now I know that there are some who have said that some people are more emotional than others and will cry at the drop of the hat...but it's not about that, it's the story telling and the build up to the moment where she cries that doesn't make sense to some viewers...this is usually due to either writing of the character hasn't been fleshed out enough or the interpretation of the character by the actor, the character has to convince us that under all circumstances i.e the rules that have been established in the world where the character exists plus what we have been shown about the character so far justifies and aligns with their behavior...when those things don't happen that's when viewers feel a disconnect from the character and the story and it feels "unrealistic" or it takes the viewer out of the story and reminds them it's an "act"...if you compare to JW, it is convincing within the environment, the background, the story we've been shown and his character that he is required to run, therefore we do not feel as though it is contrived but it feels right and is believable.
  12. I just watched today's subbed ep and I kinda feel cheated when it comes to qn #1 in the poll, I mean I thought if HJ logs in she's playing the game, not just logging in and logging out kind of like Prof. Cha, but an active player...anyway...I got my zombie avatar up I chose Zombie Marco LOL otherwise I was so happy with how shooketh Prof. Cha was...for me that was the highlight of the episode... I'm not going to expect many questions answered I'm just going to assume it was somewhat magic and the game went crazy on its own...and there isnt a real bad guy but just victims of the said game.....
  13. @sanika I agree, I also felt like the writer and director were like, it’s episode 11 and we still have no kiss so it’s now or never and since the viewers have been waiting and are kinda disappointed, let’s throw it in now… @imels it’s not that they need to wait longer for the kiss, or that he is supposed to finish the quest and find SJ first, IMO it’s the way the writer wrote out the romance, it's the writer's fault for not fleshing it out and building up the relationship, so now she realized we are in ep 11 and no kiss, and just gave it, so the impact was not as good, IMO it couldve had a bigger punch. It’s not about having more episodes but about building both the game/and the relationship simultaneously, so that the whole story is well rounded, well paced and realistic... @rita96 and to everyone who are debating me, I think you are all misunderstanding me...on paper because we know everything from JW's point of view and we know what he has been through, yes he has motivation, but it is how it was delivered by the writer is what made it have less of an impact for me... I'm not saying that he should've fixed everything and then came and find her I'm just saying that the moment and the build up to the moment didnt seem realistic to me...of course people build bonds when they are going through it and that is how you know if someone will be with you through thick and thin or not, he didn't have to fix everything to have a romance with her, but it was the build up to the moment that fell flat for me....it could've been written better taking account everything that had happened prior to the moment...as @sanika mentioned above, it was the timing... I know when it comes to OTPs and kiss/romance scene's people can be a little too protective, like a mother and her child...so we can agree to disagree... EP12 was much better IMO and I'm looking forward to the next few episodes I'm happy they gave us a little bit of a background on Su Jin and Dr. Cha's relationship...I don't know why Su Jin agreed to marry him, especially right away after her divorce to Jin Woo.... I'm more excited for the upcoming episodes now that we know for sure Prof. Cha has nothing to do with the game going rogue, because if he was behind all of this he wouldn't be so shocked when he saw zombie Cha!!! I was surprised that it looked like some guy went to get the lens for him, so he had the lens as well? but never played the game? at that moment, I honestly thought something will go wrong for Jin Woo and zombie Cha wouldn't appear...especially when he kept telling him to prove it.... but he appeared and Prof. Cha was shocked therefore it means he is no longer a suspect... I liked how JW told him to basically leave the country and let him continue with the quest if he wants to survive... New suspects, CEO Park and Su Jin... I think they knew that Prof. Cha is ruthless when it comes to the company and therefore they used him to get everyone out of the way while they take over.... aaaaand finally, Emma meets Emma....I can't wait to see how all this will unfold to help JW finish the quest and finally find SJ
