  1. Ahri is in for a rough ride with her loveline. It is blatantly clear that Ae Sook, Joon Soo’s mother doesn’t like Ahri much. Plus the mom already have it in her head that Joon Soo should marry into a prestigious family especially considering the success of his company and bright future. I am looking forward to their romance though.
  2. Hopefully the company sued her if her money laundering involved company funds. And then hopefully the government collect their share from fines and lawsuits. Most of all, I hope she rots in prison. These shows never deliver justice quite the way I want especially when their victims usually lost everything.
  3. @Sleepy Owl, did they say what will happen to the company? To me since KHR killed for the company and her son, it’s important that she at least lost the company entirely. I don’t care if the board appoint a managing director...just as long as KHR has completely lost any right to the company. I’m still waiting for subs so I don’t know all that happened.
  4. This. You echo my thoughts about this series so well. I gave up trying to figure this stuff out mid-series. I thought I would just stop guessing and let the show tell me instead. Nevertheless I held on to the rule that was introduced around the time that the future mother killed her past self and it was said by Seol Oh Wan that changing the past doesn’t change the current dimension but creates a new dimension and so basically there are many parallel dimensions currently. So then I wanted to know how is JG going to put an end to time travel and how will all the dimensions disappear when Seol Oh
  5. @mjmartinez, I think right now Byeori needs a stable home and I’m not sure that Ahri can provide that. They’re living in a motel right now where unsavory characters appear. That’s not a good environment for both Ahri and Byeori. Regarding Byeori living with Ahri’s father and stepmother, I think it would be unrealistic to have the father’s feelings towards the ex-wife resolve anytime soon. He’s been hating the ex-wife for years now. That’s why Ahri told Byeori to lie in the first place. I can’t see those feelings of bitterness disappearing soon. Only unless he gives in purely to get
  6. @maribella I expect anything in daily drama shows, like Fatal Promise. They’re so over the top that I don’t expect them to adhere to common sense and rules. Come to think of it, I suppose this show has its makjang elements too so having JM interrogate is just another one of those unrealistic moments.
  7. I saw this scene in the raw episode and I inwardly rolled my eyes. A reporter shouldn’t be watching an interrogation like that. It felt so odd to me. And did he enter the interrogation room too? That’s highly unusual. I thought only police, prosecutors, defense attorneys and in some cases witnesses are allowed to do this. @maribella By her protecting Kim, I guess her last useless act is to have him deal with ES. What a loyal dog to actually involve himself in killing people for his owner. There must be more to this relationship. Why is he so loyal to go as far as committing murder?
  8. Glad to see lots of people hate Rachel too. I’m not into hating characters maybe except certain villains, and of course as I mentioned I ended up disliking Light Yagami, but Rachel I disliked even before she betrayed Bam. It didn’t take me long to like Anaak and Endorsi. I was always suspicious of Khun though because he’s the type who seemed like a manipulator and a betrayer for his own goals but his back story quickly shed light on why he operates that way and I understood him better. Indeed it’s nice to see a character grow and become stronger. Look how Tanjirou evolves in battles
  9. @tas82, I don’t think people need to be detestable to enrage people. Don’t forget the airhead sister in Brilliant Heritage. She wasn’t exactly evil but she sure cause a lot of serious problems. The worse kind of people to deal with are the ones who prey on a person’s pity and eventually ruin the person who they take advantage of. I can see if the mother took shady debts things might have gotten ugly for Ahri and her father. What if they lost their house that they put a lot of money into buying? That’s pretty painful and to some people, unforgivable. Not to mention if they were constantly haras
  10. Yep, when I first started watch Korean drama shows I heard Tree with Deep Roots was good. Hmmm. Hopefully Alice answers the major questions at least. These time travel drama shows like to end on questions. Train did, Nine Time Travels did and most time travel shows I have watched in some shape or form did as well. Signal wasn’t exactly time travel but even in that show although a certain important character changed his future, he still paid a price and his ending was uncertain. Maybe they will answer that question in Signal 2. Indeed I like Namgoong Min drama shows espec
  11. The biological father should come forward and take care of his kid. I couldn’t believe him when at the food stand Byeori told him that she’s staying at her sister’s house and he asked her if they’re nice to her and she said yes and he told her, “Then you can keep living there”. How shameless can he be! The mother raised her alone and it should be his turn now to step forward and take care of his child. @tas82, it also really seems to be that the cross-dresser is Dae Ro’s father and therefore Dae Ro is Byeori’s older brother. It almost seems like the cross-dresser will
  12. Indeed SH seems the most repentant of the three. He seems to have genuinely changed his mind about the way he lived his life and took responsibility for his actions. Same with Mr. Ha. The wedding was nice and long overdue. Everybody looked bright and nice.
  13. Yes, in most survival games like these, betrayal is a necessary component like in BToom or Hunter x Hunter. Hunter x Hunter, in particular I liked although the characters in Hunter x Hunter are more twisted and brutal at times. Funnily there’s a similarity in relationship dynamics between Bam and Khun and the protagonist of that show and Killua (assassin kid). This show is ranked #3 top anime by 1,414,000 members on Myanimelist and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is ranked #1 by 1,984,000 members. In my opinion Hunter x Hunter should be #2 but there’s this show call Gintama (which is
  14. @Sleepy Owl, thanks for that information. I have never watched Tree With Deep Roots though I have contemplated doing so a few times. I have to be in the mood to watch these kinds of drama. I still have to finish Rebel Thief which I have on hold for some time now. So you don’t like exaggerated fighting? Why? I see it as a form of art. I know Rebel Thief had more realistic sword fighting. You won’t like Chinese drama show fighting then because their martial arts are exaggerated for the most part. It’s kind of funny that I think Jason Bourne’s fighting is more realistic than the martial
  15. I didn’t like Ahri’s attitude for a different reason. I didn’t like the way she took her stepmom’s truck during a workday and acted like it’s no big deal. Her stepmom’s business was affected because she wasn’t able to make deliveries. The way Ahri behaved was selfish and she didn’t even apologize to the stepmom for taking the truck without permission. Another thing I didn’t like was the way she expected that not showing up for work for three days without informing her employer was okay. That was rude and irresponsible. She should have at least inform them that she had a family emergency.
  16. @Sleepy OwlI enjoyed Dae Jang Geum and Dong Yi sageuk shows. I tried Jumong and Six Flying Dragons but quit. How is Six Flying Dragons? I mainly felt inspired to try it after I watched Chicago Typewriter with Yoo Ah In. I wanted to see more of his acting. Oh, you’re making me want to rewatch it soon. Sometimes when I remember Galadriel’s prologue, that alone inspires me to rewatch. Actually, my user name is based on Celebrian who is the daughter of Galadriel and Celeborn and the wife of half-elf Elrond and mother of Elrohir, Elladan and Arwen. Heh. She lived in Valinor at the time of
  17. I don’t really watch horror movies now but I know in the past, movies like The Exorcist, The Omen, Friday the 13th, Candy Man, Final Destination and tv shows like Supernatural and The X-files were scary to me. Anything to do with demon possession scares me because I have heard of true accounts in real life. With Final Destination, the fact that death was hunting the survivors of the plane crash who were supposed to die was kind of mind blowing to me at the time the movie was first released. Probably it was because they were powerless to stop their death. After seeing that movie, wh
  18. @Sleepy Owl, I watched Tower of God. It was interesting. I like this sort of anime. It’s a good thing you told me about it because when I started watching it today I realized that I had already watched episode 1 previously but it hadn’t drawn me in so I hadn’t continued with episode 2. I have to say all along I didn’t really like Rachel. At first I didn’t mind her but as Bam kept talking about her as his motivation, I became increasing annoyed by his motivation. I think it’s because there wasn’t too much shown of why he was so attached to her. I actually prefer all of Bam’s other frie
  19. It’s so funny that I went into my Crunchyroll tv app today and the home screen has Tower of God on it with “Start Watching” button highlighted. Heh. I’m not sure who works harder between the Korean manhwa and Japan manga artists but I know over the years several mangaka have gotten sick, developed chronic wrist issues, and some have even died leaving their work unfinished. This is why I limit my reading of long series. Of the big three, I only read and watched some of Naruto. Actually, I have all 70+ volumes of the Naruto manga because it’s one of the first anime I watched and then I wanted to
  20. If he takes the fall for her he’s stupid. However, the guy she worked with to embezzle the funds should be able to testify that SH didn’t know. I think in their conversation she always admonished him not to leave any trail for a Cruella and anyone else to find out. @Lmangla, I don’t blame SH’s misfortune on his father. The way I see it, people who raised their kids well can still have a child who turn out to be a bad apple and the parents are left wondering what they did wrong. Then there are the parents who were the worse and their kids somehow still turn out right. Not to mention S
  21. @Sleepy Owl, I watched both versions of Fullmetal Alchemist. I watched the first series before the manga finished and the Brotherhood series after the manga ended. I even bought the latter series on blu-ray to watch when I don’t feel like reading the manga. That’s how much I enjoyed the series. Amusingly though, the series is available for streaming on my US streaming channels anyway like Netflix and Hulu. About Attack on Titans, now that you mention it, I do remember that characters that I didn’t think would die early in the series died. I did find that brutal but it set the tone f
  22. If the police do their job properly and arrest the man who she worked with, she will still end up in jail. Perhaps Cruella will provide the evidence. She has nothing to lose now. This writer better not let EJ get off. By the way, I don’t know about EJ’s actress acting. She always wear the same expressions.
  23. The highlight of the evening for me was seeing EJ in handcuffs. Only Dumbo is still free, wallowing in pity. One thing about these villains is that they don’t have any conscience. They’re defiant to the end shouting and sneering at people. @UnniSarah @tas82 @Lmangla @dolorisbrady I’m just glad that the paper company was found and hopefully EJ also rots in prison. I don’t know if the last episode will be satisfying to me but I hope it’s satisfying to most people. I saw the preview for it and at least Cruella and EJ are wearing matching jumpsuits.
  24. Well, I have completed 319 Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese and Japanese drama shows according to my drama list. I do wonder how I managed it but I think it was mostly weekend viewing over several years. I own the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series. I gave away several manga series this summer but kept that one. Indeed the story is well told. I should give it a re-read soon. About Demon Slayer, I liked the story. I just find it gross sometimes. Can you tell I’m at my limit? Now that I have watched and read a lot of these anime and manga, I think I am burnt out by how many of them
