  1. Just as an aside - I remember saying the lead actress was good after the first episode but her speech was irritating but it totally is in line with her character. I think she is absolutely nailing the role at the moment despite some issues with the actual character itself. And I've been asking for it so I'm glad we finally some backstory on the main lead - the FL has been given most of the acting to do so far so will good to see what the ML is capable of
  2. It's mentioned in the first episode - it's why he was moving location so he could look after her
  3. I agree the mystery hasn't really come into its own yet but it's still early doors so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt for another week. I think there's a pretty good chance Sung-hoon isn't his real son - in the trailer for the next episode you see the ML asking who really is SH and it would make sense why he was still so determined to go against what his dad wanted (the bill passing) and why his dad is so indifferent to him missing. I feel like I completely missed the part about the land being dangerous, was that inferred at some point? The ML's mum has cancer, In-Dong Koo's mom was at a mental hospital (was the guy he beat up and gave money to his dad?) there could be some link between them but I think it's unlikely. It could be that the ML doesn't know there's a link and then In-Dong Koo drops it later on about his sister's case being connected with everything to get him onside- it would be a very kdrama think to to by having everything link in whichever egregious way possible. I think them all working together is too farfetched - having one character i.e. the female lead having some kind of split personality is one thing but having the entire show essentially be disingenuous (the ML running around finding clues he already knows playing his part, ringing the FL telling her he'll find her husband i.e. making no sense) is a complete cop out unless revealed early on in the drama to piece together the machinations.
  4. I don't like how everything is so outwardly in your face pitiful with the ML, and that's coming from someone that likes watching broken leads. It needs to be more subtle.
  5. I agree that it can't be as straightforward as some people are theorising in this thread - i.e. it revolves around a land issue to get the new business up and running (I hope so anyway) The first scene with the girl committing suicide, even if it's not an affair has to play a bigger part. The issue with these kinds of shows is (murder mystery corruption shows) it relies on the writing staying as tight as possible with unpredictable twists, as they are already so many cliche within this genre that it can get off putting and predictable pretty quickly (recently The Watcher had this issue, despite one or two good twists) Hopefully they can write an interesting conspiracy/mystery because just having it be about building the new plant just makes it seem small i.e. I hope there is a 3rd party and they have a much more interesting motivation. I know this will mainly be a plot driven show based on what we've seen but still looking forward to hopefully getting something more on the background of the male lead (I agree with people that the FL's background will slowly be revealed and they'll be something off with her, but don't agree with people that think the dad and husband were trying to protect her as the dad would not need any convincing for that)
  6. Well I originally asked itt whether this was a love triangle show and you said no which is why I started watching I assumed you had read whatever this is based off and knew.
  7. As in who they end up with isn't my main issue with love triangle shows it's just the journey to the end when the writers try and cater to both sides i.e. when it becomes obvious they want a back and forth so characters start doing stupid out of character things to push it one way and than the other to feed the triangle rather than the main story. That's when I usually start dropping these kinds of shows. Manufactured, out of character drama for the sake of a love triangle to pander to "ships" as they get popular is my biggest pet hate with kdramas.
  8. I've watched up to episode 10 and I feel like a love triangle seems very likely even if it's unrequited it feels like it'll play a big part - am I missing something
  9. Yeah this show has lost me and I'm now just waiting for it to end to hear if it gets any better and is worth a watch - other than production values nothing stands out or is unique in this show and the plot holes make it very hard to get into and root for people. I don't want to compare it to Iris because there are only some similarities, but it's weaknesses are glaringly obvious when you do.
  10. I enjoyed those first two episodes - definitely has my interest. As expected it was a very plot driven first two episodes to get the story going but looking forward to finding out about the two leads and getting some character development. For the ML feel like we only know his mom has cancer and that's h'e''s moving offices to presumably care for her. I've seen him in the film Shoot my Heart and he was very good. The painting the ML sees when he goes into the missing guys house (ep 1 or 2 I've forgotten) and says there's something wrong with it, did he infer something from it in that scene or do we think it's something they'll come back to? Could't tell if I missed something there but just fell odd for them to point it out. A very small thing that I'm hoping is just a case of getting used to it - the FL's speech I find a bit off and it's distracting, she sounds childlike and I can't tell if it's for her character or just how the actress speaks The body she finds is probably the worker that set himself on fire that they're looking for.
  11. That was a better episode but I really wish the ML would get some more colour to his character in the coming episodes and it would have been better for the story imo to have some of these flashbacks in earlier episodes. I sort of miss how older shows used to do these dramas - with the first 3-5 episodes solely focusing on the characters growing up so you're really into the characters by the time all the big events come along
  12. Picked this up recently and it has got me hooked Currently on episode 12 and a bit disappointed the princess already knows his true identity as I feel like potential storylines would be better if she didn't, but will trust the writing and see where it goes.
  13. Good post - I agree with all of it. I like Woo Do Hwan and Jang Hyuk so I'm hoping the show doesn't fall flat and the writing picks up. The point about the too much happening without giving the characters and story to breathe is spot on, it feels like one big scene after another with some exposition inbetween given half the effort and time as the battle scenes. We're still pretty early on but the start has definitely dampened the expectations I had for the show
  14. I don't know what to make of this show so far - I love the action scenes and the production values, the long tracking shot in the first battle in episode 3 was awesome, but the most important part of any show that will keep you coming back is the story and characters and I'm not enamoured with those aspects at the moment. Don't like any of the characters so far or the development we've seen - the second lead is just too straight forward at the moment and the main lead is coming across as a bit of a gary stu though there's obviously plenty of time for this to change. Really wish they had fleshed the story and characters out more before giving us all these big battle scenes as it is overpowering the most important aspects of the show and making them stick out as lacking for me (with the issue being the characters and the story are not bringing anything new so far). Vagabond has this exact same issue for me and it has led to me just not being bothered to watch the episodes as soon as they're available, only to kill some time if there's nothing else on. Happy to see Jang hyuk though - Chuno still remains one of my favourite shows. Also for such a big production I'm surprised about how quiet this thread is
