  1. @triplem @Lawyerh don’t spoil the tunamayo for me please (which is also one of my fave food) I will start it once I finish Signal today. 


    @Ameera Ali that kiss at the end is rather out of place. But when her voiceover comes, at least I understood it as she thought she was dying and she just wanted to kiss him. Otherwise, a hug would be more appropriate.

    it was so sad. it has been a while I felt really sorry for a fictional character and was hoping that it would turn out differently. :bawling: more thoughts on the grateful family thread. won't bore people here...



    Nursing the same heartache here... :tears:

    but still, nothing beats the ending of God’s Gift - 14 Days in terms of crappy ending. I should comfort myself with that...

  3. Watching with subs now. I jumped to the trial part. Han indeed got a 4-year sentence. She willingly turned in the evidences to Prosecutor Joo so that he can be successful in putting her behind bars with a condition that MC Group will not be affected at all with her trial. Her steadfast loyalty to this MC Group (the company) is really something...


    The prosecutor asked for 5 years tampering evidence in AJR's case, 3 years for bribing civil servants thus obstructing the conduct of public affairs (justice in this case), 5 years for instructing the murder of MWP, 2 years for fraud. Total of 15 years. She admitted to all the charges and did not even want to make a closing statement in her defense. However, the judge's ruling was that instruction of murder is insufficient evidence, so only for the other charges that she got fined, and 4 years of jail time <_<


    Her team member I think got punished too, although we don't see it. Han stated each of their possible serving time during her "farewell speech" to them. The team leader 2 years, the short hair lady 1 year, long hair lady 6 months, the young guy 1 year. Han said that is the fate they must accept when they have chosen to be in TOP ~ whaaaat? so once again confirming that they knowingly commit crimes that are punishable by law <_<

    I do honestly feel quite let down because of the too-easy treatment that Han received.  It was deeply disappointing to see and her little team have a gloat at the end.

    Same here. URGH!

    With the big Evil triumphing to the end the rewatch value has seriously plummeted for me.

    Same here. URGH! It could've made it into my top 10 rewatch.



    HYS got 1 year for stealing AJR's work and fraud.

    WJ got 2 years for unfair transactions and internal transactions.

  4. So I finished the raw after all, with some fast forwarding. It's past mid-night after all, should be in bed, but don't know if I can actually sleep or not with the way drama ended. I have to reserve comments until I watched with subs.


    If I heard correctly, Han got a 4-year sentence... and when she is out (in the epilogue), her minions are there waiting for her, like ready for their next project...? It seems like they make it to be an open ending for the TOP team, but seriously, I wouldn't want to watch a sequel featuring them at work again <_< Who would?

  5. Still halfway through the raw finale... Don't feel like continuing anymore until sub is out... I cried when WS hanged himself :bawling: I feel like he really is the most pitiful of all the characters in this drama. I just knew he would do something foolish when he asked the police to wait for him outside. But of course, being a director he is, he has to make his exit dramatic.


    @bebebisous33 WS stabbed AJR out of misunderstanding and uncontrolled emotions. He has gone there to beg her to divorce with his father so his mother could be happy. Earlier he witnessed his mother crying because the father is indifferent to her and she felt that as long as AJR is still around, she could never be happy. As he approached her to comfort her, she called him a failure. Then when he was at AJR's house, AJR refused his request, even slapping him for suggesting something. They had their back turned from each other as AJR walked back to her painting, which  she accidentally ruined. She got startled when he pressed the door bell, because Ha just left her house. AJR called the painting a failure, but WS thought she is calling him that, and he was dazed and next thing was he stabbed her. He was shocked to see what he did, and probably ran away from the scene (not shown) because next is the arrival of Mo, who called Han.

  6. I am wondering why the English translation use "Joker", "Don't be a joke" to translate the mysterious person and the messages.... Just sharing as additional perspective to the story, the Chinese subs translate the person as "Trouble Maker" and the messages as "Don't be cocky/smug" ~ meaning, don't think so full/highly about yourself. I'm interpreting it as someone who doesn't like to see things go well with DB, to see her being happy/successful.

  7. Another awesome episode! Especially towards the end.

    I cried when SH just found out Grandpa is actually her bio-dad, when she was thinking about all those times they spent together. And then I was fist-pumping and grinning when she announced at the dining table that she is actually Grandpa's daughter.


    Some important details in spoiler, not in order


    Firstly, the one thing we want to find out so much... AJR is not SH's bio-mom. Her bio-mom already passed away. Jung handed baby SH to AJR to take care and they both agreed to keep it a secret from Chairman Mo. It so happened that he frequently was not around due to business, and it seems that they lived separately, but AJR already calculated the time and would go with SH being born a month later than her actual birth date.


    In present time, Jung was "quarantined" by TOP with bodyguards, but Han purposely let her out so she could tell SH about her parentage. But then Han already took away the only evidence proving SH is Grandpa's daughter, and instructed her minion to clear away anything in the house belonging to Grandpa Mo to remove any traces for further DNA test.


    SH went to talk to Han, great jabbing here between them about valuing facts. SH then went home to announce her real status in the family. She mentioned they need to reorganize the addressing titles. She added one great thing about human is their adaptation skill, and that all of them should be able to adapt easily. She also announced that she will bring back Third Wife and son so they can have happy family home sweet home. If Second Wife doesn't like her arrangement, how about she be the one to move out? LOL, that's when she screamed high-pitched... WJ who protested strongly for her to stop got reminded by SH that he has the greatest brain, so adapt quickly. Only WS was amused by the whole thing, and very quickly address her as Aunt SH, lol, saying that he has been meaning to make a movie about their family. He wondered what will happen the next day since it seems there are always stunning news every day. SH replied with how about a finale of someone being on trial in court?


    Then the three of them had meeting with Han, who confirmed the fact, but not to worry, they can continue with installing WJ as the new CEO because just using Jung's testimony will not be enough to prove that SH has more rights to the company. She assured them she has gotten rid of the DNA test, so SH being Grandpa's daughter will just be a supposition. Second Wife smiled and WJ smirked. Only WS exchanging dagger looks with Han... LOL... After Han left, Second Wife proudly announced that MC group belongs to her son after all. WS asked her, am I not your son? And her answer just left him hurt again. (As the episode opening, we see the back story of WS, why he live his life the way it is now... WJ was kidnapped as a child, and the mother wailed why is it not WS who got kidnapped instead of WJ, and that was overheard by WS)


    Later on, WS talked to YD about getting back SH's shares. Then he went to talk to Han and asking for his 30% again. At the end, Han said that she would never back him up to be the leader of MC group, even though she can help him to cover up a murder committed by him. Her last words before the episode ends was "Wasn't AJR killed by you?" WS just replied "What?" ~ I personally think that this is just something that Han will make it like so if WS keeps pestering her and causing problems. In the preview, someone said that the only person without motive to kill is WS. Then WS and SH were in her room, and SH said that she wished he is not the person who killed her mother.


    Other preview: Our team found irrefutable evidence to proceed with their case now. The Loan Shark Lady was brought by SH to attend meeting for WJ's installation, and she greeted Han, so you're HJK. Han then went missing. We see her saying goodbye to her minions that her era as TOP leader is finished and then we see her at a rooftop.... please, no jumping, Han.

  8. Why does it seem to me that the King didn’t really try to kill the baby? He seems to be just unhappy that the baby is born on 19th Nov and maybe that will bring bad luck for him? You know how they sometimes believe those kind of myths. He seemed regretful about getting rid of them two since one of the ministers stated he seemed happy to hear Jung is alive. Could he be looking for the baby who is supposedly all grownup now? Remember earlier he kept trying to get confirmation from one minister whether he really killed Jung after seeing him buried the dead baby.

     I hope she's not walking away from YD.  Kinda looks like it in the third picture.




    Has anyone else noticed that SWife's family name is Ha?  Ha Ha.  :wacko:  Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Anyway, Ha is awfully similar to Han, isn't it?

    I don’t think she is walking away from him. Notice his right leg is raised mid-air. He is just following her from behind probably to give her some space. Maybe this is when she just found out her true parentage. 


    The surname Ha and Han are very different in the Hanja writing as often used by Korean. 河 vs 韓 so I wouldn’t read too much into it....

    @triplem ~ so I am finally watching signal and am kind of disappointed. heard so many great things but I feel it is missing something compared to tunnel. guess it is the warmth of choi jin hyuk's character? there was something very kind about him. here, signal almost feels like a regular detective series that I watch all the time. not that there's anything wrong with it but am used to those kind of cases. anyway, watched only 4 eps so far. maybe I will finish or not depending on how busy this week and next week are..


    I started again on Signal after stopping at ep.4 for the longest time. I couldn’t stand the crying of LJH when he was the movie theatre. It broke my heart so much. He cries so well you want to cry with him. Now on ep.9. I want to finish before season 2 arrives. 


    @Ameera Ali I have to go out now. Can’t wait to come home and watch Nokdu :lol: @triplem you should watch Nokdu... so funny.
