  1. Short trousers has been in for a while now (to my delight since I am super tall so it was always hard to find long enough pants, ha ha!) but rest assured, he is probably wearing socks for the really short ones that you do not see
  2. I was actually wondering if he isn't already; meaning that he might have been in the past? I get the feeling that there is more to TaMi being resistant to Morgan than just having worked a lot, etc. I think sthg might have happened in the past, something that made her build walls around her. Perhaps LDW's character is linked to that? So Hey! I am new to this thread! Been watching since week 1 and really like it. I saw some comments by Koreans posted here and one of them said that it was both unrealistic and realistic. I guess that is what I like: it is unrealistic and over the top at times but it keeps it entertaining; and it is realistic and some parts really touches me. Like the bag/status discussion TaMi had with ARa (what her English name again?); the showing weaknesses in love at its beginning; the life choices one makes and its consequences; etc. One thing I also really like is the cinematography. The way some scenes are shot are really fascinating and breathtaking. The angles of some shots, just wow! Of course I love the thing TaMi and Morgan have going on. It is so HOT! He he... That said, I totally understand why she is resisting him: first, the age difference. It's never easy. Second, he is no saint like some of you just said, and that is scary. Hence my thinking sthg might have happened to her in the past... Third, well, teasing is fun too
  3. Oh I have a lot of catching up to do as it is now on Netflix!! Yay!
  4. I like it a lot but only watched the two first episodes... The subs I found are dreadfull so it's hard to focus. Thank god I speak a bit of Korean otherwise it would be hell. Love the male lead. I mean I am watching this for him but his acting is strong and his character is intriguing. I have many questions regarding his past and ability too.
  5. Ah I was so looking forward to this, but I could not find any subbed version...
  6. @jcbel - Oh I love those discussions. I see your points and I agree in the sense of repetition of history and cycle of violence, as well as killing one in order to save hundreds, thousands, etc. While I agree the show introduces these questions and deals with the ambivalence quite nicely in that last episode, like you describe so well yourself around KWH's belief, I still think they are hinting at a different way of dealing with things - an ambivalent way too but one that is not about killing that one in order to save more. What Detective Do refuses is to kill that "one" like KWH was able to do repeadtly while considering the greater scheme of his project. Do was faced with that choice several times, and he refused to pull the trigger each time. At first, the HBomb comparaison bothered me but it is quite fitting actually because I think more people would condemn the bombings now than the opposite. I know it's still a debate, but a lot of information point to the fact that the Japanese were done for and the the bombings should be considered as war crimes. Hence, while ambivalent, there is something about responding to violence with violence in excess (what KWH did with the Hunters), and that while nothing is black or white, no one is good or bad, there are still excesses that should be avoided because, ultimately, they repeat the problem instead of solving it.
  7. Finally managed to watch the last episode and I liked it wuite a lot. I thought it finished nicely, though not too optimistic either, on a dark and ambivalent note. @jcbel - Perhaps I would not be so kind to Kang Woo Huyn. Though he does want to get rid of that family which had sold out to the Japanese for a while now, he stil wanted to shift the power to him. It's just reorganization, redistribution, and repetition. It was not a surprise he went against the organisation, and I quite liked how that was done: in another hunt and somehow they all got caught in their own game, their own trap. Even Kang Woo Huyn's fate at the end is a trap he is caught in (no surprise that virus is called trap too). Quite clever actually. I was happy to see Secretary Kim again and to see she had struggled to survive and remember till then. I guess perhaps that is what differentiate the 'evil' ones and the 'good' ones? Feelings and memories? It is those that make you move forward and survive. One thing I did not like: the twin appearing at the end... That was just so random and did not bring much to the story really. So perhaps, yeah, hinting at a possible season 2? ETA: Oh just saw the article above and no plans for season 2 - then I don't see why the helll they would introduce her at the end... I know to show that Detective Do attracts kind people he needs to protect but still...
  8. Ha ha... After a crazy week at work, now that it is the week-end, I have been avoiding this thread in order not to be spoiled but only to discover the finale is tonight..... Damn, the waiting is killing me! Did not mean to take so long to answer you but work was crazy this week. Actually, impusilvity is the one trait that unites all psychopaths. Thus, it is not surprising he was. I do think it was implusive, but that he had already thought of using the hunting grounds to his advantage. In a sense, perhaps this impulsive act was the trigger for starting a plan he had considered for a while, that is being recognized by the organization, etc.
  9. @thistle and @jongski - I also wonder how it will end. Will he be exposed to all as the monster that he is? I think that might be his best punishment. At the same time, Koreans have a tendency to have quite dark shows/movies so I am not sure we'll get a 'happy' ending in terms of the Hunters. All I hope is for Inspector Do and his dear profiler to be ok and live as family with that kitten too! Are those two things exclusive? Yes, he perhaps acted on the spur of the moment but his planning after the act was quite precise and rested on the case he was actually working on/pretending to research for work. I do agree the police officer who is now fine after almost being killed by him is a bit weird. I am hoping they will go somewhere with that in episode 7. Here are some thoughts on your points: 1. The reporter and the woman - Just because Kang Evil-Bastard killed his wife there does not mean that it was not previously a hunting ground of the group, no? Choosing to go there after he killed his wife points to his careful planning and setting it all up in relation to the Hunters. 2. He actually explains he has kept some material, etc. As for knowing where they are, I assumed it was based on the video; and as a cop, he was probably aware of that cyber café. I cannot imagine it being very difficult for him to put two and two together. 3. Was it a bomb? I thought they had but the break and it was the liquid after the crash that caused the explosion?
  10. I am so glad it is over next week. I don't think I could take any other episode... My nails are all gone. Ha ha..... I have to admit it is quite impressive what Kang Woo Hyun has managed to do. The way he manipulated everyone so that it would now be very hard to even be accused of the crimes he actually committed. But isn't it there more? Isn't he too intelligent to be manipulated by others and be part of the Hunters? Somehow I would not be surprised if he went against them too at this point. I was so glad to see the cat but who is going to take care of him now that Inspector Ko is stuck in that 'hospital' place?
  11. I know!!! I was happy nothing bad happened to it but I keep wondering what happened to the little guy nonetheless... Episode 5 is like.... OH MY GOD! I was expecting something fishy in relation to Kang Woo-Hyun; I actually thought that he was the one who had killed his wife back there once he realized she was with them. Playing with that 1mm margin a bit but I did not expect the show to go all the way there! Wow!
  12. Today is Trap-day! Yay! I'll try to watch it today but will make surenot to spoil anyone.
  13. That is what I gathered too but now the question is on which side was he? - He is unconfortable being told what to do by a foreigner so perhaps pro-Korea/independence? - Yet, if he mentions the fact that he was free to kill a lot of people, doesn't that imply he was more likely on the side of the Japanese and thus part of the colonial system? I have no idea really... what do you all think?
  14. It seems like she is and she might also be playing the hunting game now. Like she mentioned in one of the flaskbacks, she is similar to the CEO, hence I think it was implied that she actually became a part of the crew. She probably participated in putting the trap up, lurring her family to that café, etc. Hence the reason why her body was never found. The whole pheremone and so talk was also a bit complicated/confusing so I am expecting that we will know more about the whole process, perhaps through the profiler? What I gather is the insistance on instincts and "smell," smell of fear being one of the reasons those people hunt - it makes them feel powerful to see fear in others. The whole Japanese thing was interesting - is it because the real chief is a foreigner? Thus does it echo in some ways Korea's colonial history? That old man did seem to refer to that and I think he might be in the process of trying to gain control of the group and get rid of that "chief." I can't wait for next week!
