  1. Yeah, I have the same train of thought. If I keep second-guessing everyone's motives, then I'll never fully enjoy the drama or make sense of the story. Lol. I also think Gaon has some sympathy for the family, especially for Elijah, but also extended a bit of it to Yohan as well. I love a good vigilante justice story, (think Sympathy for Lady Vengeance), so I'm all for Gaon awakening and teaming up with Yohan. This isn't world like Forest of Secrets/Stranger where there's still a functioning judicial system in place to check against and correct corruption. It's an idealistic though
  2. I felt the same way about her, and believe her ambition will be her downfall. When Sun Ah put the pearl necklace around her neck, it certainly reads as a strong metaphor for Jin Joo falling under Sun Ah's control. But also it literally look like Sun Ah was the devil looming behind her. The lingering soft touches and her sing-song voice combined with those dead eyes gave me chills. I think the theme of obsession is stronger throughout this episode. Certainly Sun Ah's deathly obsession with Yohan, and Yohan and Gaon mutual obsession with each other. Gaon is finding a twisted sort of
  3. He could be good or bad, astute or naive for all I care, but he currently lacks conviction/motive. I don't dislike the character, but I feel apathetic toward him. The show need to give us a reason to care about him as a person. Luckily, from the preview we might be able to finally see more of his story. Usually by episode 4 or 5, we'd already have a good the sense of all the characters, or at least a strong desire to want to know them. If the writers are playing a long-game with this character, making him make irrational decisions isn't winning the international viewers over, lol.
  4. Idk, I just feel like Ga On's motives to 'uncover' Yohan's true nature is not worth everything he's risking for to get it. Remember, he's only doing this because his 'mentor' told him to. Not because he himself believes Yohan is a monster, or that he has a personal vendetta against Yohan. Was it worth getting his childhood friend/crush involved, or risk his position and whole career as a judge, or even his own life when he chased after the biker lady? I guess we'll find out next week whether his mentor's intentions are as pure as he claimed. I just fail to see him as a believable c
  5. I thought this one is obvious, he doesn't have one because he's an illegitimate son, and therefore deemed unworthy to carry the holy names of prophets and saints. Though, a little Wikipedia birdy will tell you that Yohan is also the official Korean equivalent of the Biblical name John (Yahya in Arabic). So there you have it. As for whether the characters' story/personality correspond to the prophets and saints they're named after, I think there might be some relevance. John was thought to be the messiah, but he was just there to announce JC's arrival. He was also called
  6. Just finished episode 4, and obvious PPL aside, the main actors grounded the story with their acting. I especially love the last shot of Jisung coming out of the church. The look of shock going to grief/sadness, then rage, and the resolved look of pure vengeance as he held Elijah close. That was an amazing course in acting with your eyes. That scene alone almost makes me believe his version of the story. Or rather, I think that key moment is real, but I'm not sold on the rest of his account. The balance between the anti-hero and his foil reminds me of similar dynamics from Mouse an
  7. Taking the ships and ending out of the equation, I agree with most that this season was a huge let down. It's an extension of what the characters became at the end of season 1, with very little character development. Now I understand why they delayed it for a year. It's a waste of the actors' time. The cast is too talented for writing like this. Even the bgm, the scene cuts, and the mood of each scene are completely off. And the supporting characters felt nonexistent and ancillary. I was more interested in Gulmi and Dukgu storyline than the main characters, and she was the most hat
  8. The "This isn't the US" quote was a gem for sure, LOL. I'm sure both their legs would've been broken by now, but hey, it's not the first time where I've seen the director uses a skyscraper as a giant slide. The future is already here, and the future also defies friction and gravity, apparently! From seeing how the technology actually works, it really is a teleportation of atoms, so far it's shaping up to what I think it's happening. But now that we have a glimpse into Seo Hae's diary, I wonder if it's not a note from her future self rather than her mom. This would expl
  9. Whatever the case (heh), the suitcases are significant for each character. At first, I thought all suitcases has the same setup, but each "cubby" is tailored to specifically hold their personal artifacts. This is weird enough on its own. But then, there are the technical/medical gear that seems to be integral to the smuggling. In Tae San's suitcase, there are different measuring meters and gauges, but Tae Sul doesn't seem particularly interested in those while Seo Hae's glowy pill bottles seem more important. I do wonder if they're asked to smuggle tech from future to the Sung Dong Il charact
  10. Hi everyone! So many theories and we're only on episode 2! Like many of you, I have similar thoughts such as there are multiple timelines due to time travel. Like the title Sisyphus suggests, the protagonists are stuck in an eternal loop of traveling back to the past, failing, and traveling back again. The beginning shows Seo Hae's first trip to the past, and I believe we've skipped ahead of time to the present, where this is no longer her first time to the past, but another "redo" from her perspective. How many times she's travel to the past is unknown, but the next clue tells me
