  1. Sorry for double posting but I am rewatching/re-reading your posts and was hoping if someone can link me to the new chapters that follows the drama? Erudite’s postings seem to have disappeared off MDL as well:( I’m obsessed and just want more!
  2. Easily one of the best mainland dramas ive seen. The actress has portrayed two of my favorite female characters, Huang Rong and now Wan Mei. The last few episodes fell short but moreso due to production staging than writing/directing. I feel like the fight between Cha luo and Mei could’ve been more dramatic and epic and wished they had budgeted better for it—this goes for the fights between ChangAn/Xingfeng and ChangAn/Gonzhi as well—but whatevs. I don’t love the ending but I appreciate its hopeful, cryptic ness. Overall, this drama was one of a kind. My only complaint is I wish wan mei and Changan kissed because I am a pervert lol. Seriously tho! One of this dramas very few flaws is leaving its viewers sexually frustrated? Esp if you are watching Ashes of Love and experienced how gratuitous that one is...hmph. Bloody Romance is like the antisex compared to other mainland dramas nowadays. Tsk tsk
  3. I guess you’re trying to say being dumb is realistic. I can’t disagree, doesn’t mean it’s any less frustrating to watch. realistically, the trio would be dead from being stumbling buffoons fighting demons, should ghosts and possession happen “in real life”, yet I’m supposed to be rooting for them.... i can only suspend my belief so much. It’s not the pacing that makes this show a chore to watch, there is no slow burn. It’s just poorly written.
  4. I mean it’s the second to last week and detective Kang is still yelling at HwaPyung for going off on his own instead of calling the cops,which makes no sense because what can the cops do? Why is she trying to use human laws to defeat the supernatural at this point in the drama? but then again why does Hwa Pyung keep going off by himself when he has no clue how to exorcise a Demond? He seriously thinks he can beat spirits out of people and hasn’t learned a damn thing since his father died and grandpa got put in the hospital. He jumps into dangerous situations with no plan and expects everyone to trust him. Priest Choi got an innocent person killed because he didn’t trust Hwa Pyung... not even after he saw HwaPyung rescued Detective Kang. Furthermore, after confirming his mentor is possessed, he doesn’t go to HwaPyung and Detective Kang to formulate a plan of attack, he just recklessing interrupts mass and tells PID everything? After being questioned by the Parish and realizing he’s on his own, he goes to take a nap? Lol there’s no sense of urgency despite how dire the situation is. Detective Kang doesn’t act quick enough to secure important evidence against the congresswoman anddidnt even try to protect the nun...then she leaves the tape recording of the nuns murder with her untrustworthy boss. One step forward and two steps back isn’t exactly progress to me. None of them are on the same page and their dumb choices are actively are getting people killed now. I doubt next week anything is going to seem logical and not rushed.
  5. I was excited for this drama, but it frustrates me week to week just how dumb the protagonists are. Why are they still keeping secrets from each other? Why is it so difficult to prove youre not possessed so you can work with the hot priest to go after the real bad guy djfjrjgkrbegsjf what pride do you left to save when your childhood possession killed off your family? Lol Why do they keep wanting to face demons alone, UNPREPARED? Why are they always leaving innocent people alone and sending them off to run important errands unaccompanied AT NIGHT? Why does the detective keep trying to do everything by the law when she knows how useless her commanding officer is??? Likewise with the diocese. Why do they are always revealing to demons what they know and warning them beforehand? Its so exhausting watching this drama but ive come so far lol.... i keep hoping for a twist or progress in character development but nah, they just survive by sheer dumb luck.
  6. I think they are downplaying HHj’s role in the promo tour because of good ole fashion gender bias and sexism. The marketing is choosing to focus on the action and thriller aspect of the film so they’ve sort of defaulted to promoting to the male glaze. Their attempts at winning over the female demo is kpop idol Choi Min Ho and the eye candy of the male cast. It’s unfortunate and frustrating. HHJ is probably really shy because there’s already a boys club around her and if she’s outspoken, netizens would probably call her a sly fox or something lol. It’s a shame, but I think the film will do her justice. The material is good and it does seem like revealing too much about her character may be going into spoiler territory—which could be another factor. Still, the subject of the film is very relevant to Korea’s political climate, which affects men and women, so it sucks the marketing is so insulting to our intelligence.
  7. Whatever I loved it. I thought the character arcs were thoroughly completed and a lot of the underlying themes like prophecy, morality of war, preconceived notions, class hierarchy, all of the complicated love stories, perhaps even subversive criticism of the patriarchy, etc. were well addressed and explored. I’m surprised at the criticisms of SFHY because his character had the most evolution and the most interesting supporting cast surrounding him. I especially loved the women that he loves, who love him back and how they’ve contributed to his journey. I am literally obsessed with him and MYYS and am quite surprised there aren’t a million fanvids I can indulge in after finishing the series their interactions, dialogues about politics and just being forthright with their feelings and uncomprising alliances are so refreshing, lovely and, yes, tragic to watch. I will say the series could have been 15 episodes shorter if they cut out the flashbacks (which has always been an issue with mainland dramas since their existence sigh) and would have benefitted from it. Here’s to waiting potentially 5 years for the sequel if it even happens tho
  8. What a fun drama! I thought all the female characters were deliciously evil and badass in their own way and everything made sense so no complaints from me. Happy SH made it! Was cheering on JS because i can’t help but sympathize with women suffering from battered wife syndrom/victims of abuse so i am glad she came through in the end. and how could anything JW in response to her husband cheating on her for years, sexually assaulting her, ignoring her, objectifying her to merely a baby maker so he can make money off her child, etc. be morally equal and thus hypocritical? That’s like saying someone who uses force in self defense is morally equal to his/her violent attacker. YR also didnt have leukemia, she had pneumonia. If it werent for the symptoms of the pesticide poisoning showing itself first, they wouldnt have discovered it on time to operate on her. JS inadvertently saved her in a way.
