  1. So I re-watched the latest episodes to see if there was something I could gleen from it. And I thought it was curious that while she was in the warehouse talking to the guy in the hat, he said that because she didn't remember anything could be the reason "the higher-ups let her live" and that they were looking for an item. This suggests to me that YY is innocent and got dragged into something Ian got involved with. Clearly what ever item they are looking for, it contains evidence of what ever wrong doing they are up to and they are willing to kill for it. Next, I think her talk with her cousin was enlightening in that in her professional opinion, YY did not actually murder Ian, but thinks she did. Could have there been a scuffle with the bad guys and Ian got stabbed by accident? Also, JY's "Hyung" seems a bit suspisious to me and a bit untrustworther as JY appears to be losing faith in what he has to say about the incident. He apparently knows more about certain things than he is letting on and may actually be involved in some way.
  2. Isn't the cranky timpanist guy married and his wife is supposedly overseas somewhere? Could the wife be a friend? I have wondered about this too. In particular in that wouldn't she have had evidence somewhere that she and Ian had dated? So far the only evidence is coming from outside sources. Where are the pictures on her phone or in her home? Other than someone coming in and stealing them, which is possible with the recent break-ins we have been seeing with her. I have thought that it could be understandable if her family didn't know about her dating if she is known to be very private. For example, did her family know about her idol-wanna-be ex boyfriend? But if her closest friends did not know, then that is saying something as I do know her friends knew about her previous ex-boyfriend, so why wouldn't they know about Ian?
  3. @sw33tm3lody Welcome! I am so glad that you decided to come out of lurking to share you insights. I agree with a lot that you said about DH's conflicted feeling for YY and finding out what had happened to Ian. I think we should also take into account that compared to Western countries like the States, the culture of what family is much different in Asian countries. Plus, there is the idea of saving face. And it could be possible that what ever everyone is hiding could be related to a scandal of some sorts, which would affect the reputation of the Orchestra. And I don't know about you, but Ian appeared to me like someone who kind of walked to a different rhythm. All in all, I think how frustrated we all are on how confused by the story so far, is actually a good thing, in that the writers have created so many options in how the story could possibly turn out. The only thing is, whether or not they can pull all of theses loose threads together in the end. Cause I swear we have so many possible red herrings, it is crazy.
  4. It is just a vicious cycle of never ending guilt I agree. But a part of me hopes that somehow they will end up being each others source of healing from the tragedy. However, I think our circle of guilt will continue until either they find out what really happened, or they come to like each other so much, that it becomes more important to them than feeling sorry.
  5. @Heidi Seow Thanks for giving spoilers about what happened. Boy are they making us run in circles wondering what actually happened that night. I do hope that JY finds YY soon though. But maybe this incident will recover some of YY's memories.
  6. @morningdew Awww Shucks! They are too precious! They better have a happy ending for them, I am not sure I can stand having such a sweet and pure romance end with a bittersweet ending.
  7. Oh, SNAP!!! If that is the case, even if he was not the actually murderer, he is still just as guilty because he knew what was going down. It sounds like he is neck deep in some sort of conspiracy here, and one that went really wrong that night with Ian. The question is, is he going to let the light in his soul prevail and fight against the bad guy to free himself, or will he just get sucked in more and more and start doing even more questionable acts to cover up their trail. I think that will be one the defining moments of the character.
  8. Thanks for the spoilers! I am glad JY is starting to come clean with YY a bit. I think he is starting to be swayed by her character, which is clearly not murderer material. Plus it looks like she is going to start actively trying to remember what happened. YY makes it very hard to hate, as there isn't anything hateful about her. Based on the preview, I think that JY is going to feel very conflicted about her. Plus, I am pretty sure he is very suspicious about the people around her. And with her being very trusting and naive, I think he is going to be worrying a lot about her, but pass it off as trying to keep his suspect in his eyesight. But as time goes on, he is going to see more and more how much a victim of the situation as well. Also, it is looking like YY is going to be in danger and JY is going to be the one to keep her safe. But, I really think more and more that JY's dad was probably involved. It could be just a red herring though.
  9. I hope that JY figures it out too. But he seems like a smart guy, so I think that he will find all the clues. But I think it he going to get himself confused here, as he is going pretty deep here with his deception. When it all comes to light, I think he will be kicking himself the most particularly when she finds out his role in all of this. That is if she doesn't mental fall to pieces because of what she remembers. I mean, it has to have been very bad for her to forget so completely. I just hope she is ok in the end.
  10. I think ES said his real name when she showed up in front of his house last episode or so....but I cannot remember what it was... it began with "D" I think. I am not able to check right now, as I am at work.
  11. They were kidnapped?!? Wow! then could it be they were trying to escape, with Ian died and was killed? Oh gosh, the possibilities! It makes sense that he would use his brothers name when approaching her to see if she remembers or is faking it. I haven't been able to see the episode yet, but has YY caught on that JY is trying to get her memories back?
  12. Thanks for the link. If I understand what is written there correctly. JY's father was actually a part of covering up the accident, suggesting that he may actually know part of what had happened. It seems to hint as well that Professor Song may know something as well and does not want YY to remember. Hmmmm...this is getting interesting. Also, for the JY's age, while it is not posted, I am going to take a gander that he is roughly supposed to be 10 years older than YY. I say this because JY was 10 when his parents divorced. So assuming Ian was born after wards, then it would be around 10 years. If that is true, then it would fit that he would be a professor/teacher at a music school she was a student at.
  13. It just hit me, this is a noona romance. If understood correctly, Dowon is around 20-22? years old, while HY is 26ish? Then in that case, then the casting was really on point, because Dowon does look young. But I am wondering about their romance. For the most part it has been slowing growing in secret, but all in all, they really haven't run into any huge obstacles that prevent them from being together. It has been fairly smooth sailing for the most part. Usually you would have someone saying that they couldn't ever be together because of status, relations to so-and-so...etc. But that really hasn't happened. No one has been warning them off from each other and no one has butted in as the third party. But I still wonder how the ending is going to play out. Dowon is so head over heels for her. And it is sweet that he never tries to control her or push her around. He just worries about her and helps her from the background. I agree with the theory that Dowon is probably the true crown prince. But I don't think that they would make him the prince in the end. Unlike his elder brother, he has not been trained at all on how to deal with politics or anything leadership related. He has been going around doing mostly nothing his whole life without responsibility. While I do think he could grow to be a good leader of sorts, I think he would be miserable, being restricted and constantly plotted against. Plus, he would be separated from his HY and that would not do.
  14. You just blew my mind there!!! If that is the case, then it must really make JY curious about whether she actually remembers or not. And I can understand why he would start investigating the cousin now, particularly since YY keeps saying that her cousin told her what had happened in the accident. And it is clear that she had been told a different version of what happened. She has no idea that there was someone else who was with her then, meaning someone was covering up what had happened. Also, @Heidi Seow if YY met JY at school but doesn't remember him, it could be like what has been said that he was an assistant teacher and wasn't in class too much. I mean EJ had to really think to figure out if she had seen him and where, but she seems to be used to people scheming, so it would make sense that she would pick up on his. I think this scene was to illustrate how easily YY gets attached to people. This whole thing reminded me of the spiel with her ex-stalkerboyfriend where she texted him, but he would never respond. But I would say that in comparison, JY is better in that he did actually read the messages, even though he was late. But at this point, he does not care as much for her and she does. She is still a suspect in his mind. But I do think that JY, on some level feels connected to YY. Like when EJ was trying to find out about him and get information, whoah, was he very antagonistic. But then in a scene not long after that, YY starts asking questions about himself, and while he seems a bit hesitant, he does tell her some things. Now, he may have told her to make her trust him. That oddly seemed to be a bit of a vulnerable moment for him, like he was not used to opening up... But, I did have a thought. As YY starts to recover her memories, I wonder if the killer will start going after her. Will JY have to protect her then?
  15. I agree that it isn't all 100% an act. If you notice, while JY has continued to push her to remember, he hasn't been cruel about it. Particularly after she fainted on their hike, he seemed to be less aggressive and mean about it. My guess is that up till that point he has been acting under the assumption that her memory loss has been fake and all an act. But the longer he spends time with her, the more he is finding out that it isn't fake. And that all she currently knows is what other people have told her about the incident. Plus, she has not lived a happy life since his brother has died, she is clearly having a hard time and struggling. She is not meeting whatever stereotype he has made up for her. So I see him continuing to push her to remember, but I think that the more he learns about her and the event, the more his attitude will slowly change towards her. But it will be very subtle at first. The did make it look like NJW is the murderer...but knowing drama logic, it is very possible that it is a red herring meant to draw you in. My theory now (it keeps changing with every post! lol) is that NJW is not the murderer, but perhaps thinks that YY is. It could be very much like the set up that we saw earlier in the show where everyone is accusing her of sleeping with NJW, which is not true at all, but everyone has accepted it anyways. So I think that perhaps NJW thinks YY is the murderer or at least involved with his death and is wanting to know what happened himself. Either way though, I don't trust him at all. But based on the preview for ep. 5 I did think of something... That was way longer than what I intended.
  16. I agree that both NJW and JY are both a bit creepy and their end goals seem to be hidden. However, NJW seems to creep me out more than JY. I guess it is because JY seems to be more interested in unlocking her mind at the moment. NJW seems to want to hide the past...he doesn't give me the impression that he wants to figure out what happened or that he is even compassionate or actually kind. I mean, he fired her after ONE day after going out of his way to recruit her and then doesn't even tell her. To me, he is wearing a a "nice" mask over his actual character, Thus I admit I do not trust him the most. Since JY wants to knows her memories, I can see that he is trying his darn hardest to keep her close and get into her innermost circle and that could be as her lover. Is he using her? I am 100% certain he is, he wants to know what happened and how she was involved. But, he does not give me killer vibes and is completely heartless. Though, it may come back to bite him for using her.
  17. I was on the same track at you. The coffin held the only things she could recover/carry of the people who had died... there were too many. As for what many people are saying about the firefly's and CS and CM. The firefly is definitely someone's soul, as to who it is, I say that there is a strong possibility that it is CM. In the first episode when MG took the coffin, all of the firefly's representing the souls all followed her, except for one, which turned back to stay. It could be he stayed out of guilt and longing for what he lost with her due to his actions. But one of the main reasons that I think that CS is not CM is how they act and treat her. My impression of CM was that he was trying to seduce her, but was very hands off with what she did. Note that he does not really stop her for the most part, he lets her do what she wants, even if it could destroy her. He holds himself back from fully loving MW even though it hurts her. Where CS does not hold himself back. If he thinks she should stop what she is doing because it is bad for her and will hurt her, he makes her stop even though it hurts himself. Because saving her is more important than himself. These attributes of CS and CM are part of their innate character, so no matter if they reincarnate and can't remember, they will have certain traits that get passed on. For example, MR is still selfish in a way and just likes to take things even if they are not hers. (i.e. stealing money and sanchez pottery) And I bet we can say the same about YW as well. There are things about his character that will always be the same no matter what life they are living. Though the circumstances of the life will determine if they become positive or negative. Thus CM would always act as CM, but CS is not the same as CM in how he approaches things, and he does not abandon people he cares for, no matter what. Look, he still takes care of his ex-girlfriend despite not being in a relationship with her. CM though, he abandoned MW. Even if it was in the name of protecting her, he did abandon her. As for what will happen at the end between CS and MW, It has crossed my mind at times that if she left to the afterlife, I could see him following her so she did not have to go alone. He is afraid of her leaving, suggesting how strong his attachment is to her. And that could be the reason he was chosen by MG for MW, she knew that MW needed someone righteous who could steer her in the right direction and would not abandon her. Though how far he is willing to following will need to be seen.
  18. I have the same suspicion as you do.... I know I still have to watch the episode....But...
  19. It is obvious that YJ is not just a pianist. When he was talking to her cousin, he was very reluctant to give her information about himself...like he was worried she would make a connection as to his identity. Though if he plays other instruments, I am not sure, it hasn't been shown, but with that fancy house and such, his background is not simple at all. What happened!!?? I can't watch the show live where I am at, so I am behind. lol
  20. @Heidi Seow my guess is that either they were step-brothers or the parents divorced, which could explain the different names. All in all, I am feeling like he just wants to know what she remembers at this point. The way he went after the ex-boyfriend to protect her was super fast and aggressive. He didn't seem like he had done that to get on her good side. It looks like he is softening up to her a bit as he is slowly realizing that she may have not killed the brother, but may have only been a witness....which is what I think she was. Oh I wonder what will happen in the next episode!
  21. So I am seeing an important theme that is going to be in this series, which is crying. In the first episode, it was mentioned that crying is important to being human. Thus when HR cries, I see it as a sign of his buried humanity that is being touched. I think that we can all agree that HR is very much a jaded crusty old crooger, that has a very well hidden softspot. I find it interesting that he somehow keeps collecting lost and abandoned things, whether he finds them or they find him. And despite how he makes a big fuss about it, he always takes care of them in the end. But I think HP is particularly harsh to IG, is firstly she gets to him. And that makes him very uncomfortable, to feel things. Secondly, she reminds him of himself when younger...which is a very hurtful past for him, not just because of the struggle, but all the betrayal. So I see a lot of inner conflict when he is with IG, on one hand, he admires and respects her talent, but on the other it hurts and he feels a bit threatened so he lashes out and then kind of regrets it later while pretending that he doesn't. I think that he is right the IG will save his soul, but I don't think it will be in the way he is thinking. Also, this has been bugging me. I am not sure if anyone noticed, but the contract had four blank spaces....and I have only hear of three conditions: Wealth, fame, youth(in that order)....what was the fourth? When I saw the first one being filled the guy had his hand hiding the first one, so wealth was technically the 2nd...if that is true, what was the fourth wish? Will this have an impact on how HR will get out the contract? Lastly, I think that our devil is scared of finding a #1 soul...and it has nothing to do with the contract. I wonder what reason that could be?
  22. My theory is that Ryu took over Mo Tae Gyang... maybe he was a former soul contractor. And Ryu decided to take over his life, out of boredom since pretending to be human looked interesting. Plus, I think after watching humans for so long, he seems to be very confused and curious about why they act they do and he figures being with the humans will let him figure it out. It is a bit like "Meet Joe Black" or "Death Takes a Holiday" scenario. The emotions that Ryu seems to be used to is anger, hate, greed and fear. Love, compassion, kindness, selflessness..etc throws him for a loop. And CEO Ji is throwing emotions that he is not used to having directed to him, which is terrifying because he is not used to it and he keeps putting his foot in his mouth. lol Also, I can see that the conversation in the stair well easily could have gotten to him. The language the CEO Ji seemed to use in the subs sounded almost like she knew that he was the devil and not human, yet had loved him. I think it got to him, yet since he is not familiar with emotions, he has no idea why it did. All in all, I think that this is going to prove to be interesting as the story progresses.
  23. @Heidi Seow Thanks for the Synopsis! I knew JY was related to the guy who died somehow. But it makes sense now why his face at times would trigger her memories in certain circumstances, if he was the real brother then they would look somewhat similar.
  24. So after watching the second episode, I have a few theories already (I like to start early,lol)
