[Drama 2012] Bridal Mask 각시탈

Recommended Posts

I'm very much interested in Kang To and Rie's potential relationship as well. I've seen so many korean dramas about 'first loves' that I'm quite tired to watch anymore of it actually. I'm hoping this drama will be presented differently.Then again, somehow I'm not invested in the romance aspect of this drama but rather the bromance part of it all. That's where I'm more emotionally attached. 
Hoping this drama will continue to do well. And seeing Joo Won every week (whether it's here or on 1n2d)...seriously, it's a bonus. Winter doesn't seem so cold anymore in aussie land =)

I've just got this crazy idea that the Gaksital in episode 5 preview could be Shunji. He would have a reason to go to the police station and save Mok Dan, too, plus we have already seen his fighting skills while practising with Kang To. There was the scene where he was looking at the traditional korean mask and that raised my suspicion and then the absolutely shocked expression of Kang To as Gaksital revealead his face, however, it could be a total miss. I just wanted to share this idea.

Wow! I think you are absolutely right! I think thats why Kangto was also shocked when he revealed Gaksital. He would never say it in such a tone to his brother, but to Shunji, yes.

I cant wait for wednesday...

The Shunji theory has logic to it, however, it could be totally wrong. I remember seeing in one of the previews a scene where Shunji and Gaksital are crossing their swords in a room that looked similar to the police station. I guess we have to wait 2 days and see

is there anyone else that thinks Rie's body guard is KINDA sexy, not in a handsome way, but like in a cool way? in the scenes when Kenji picked on Rie, I kept hoping he'd pull some martial arts moves on Kenji lol. anyway, i think mok dan is pretty in a kim-so-eun way. natural and innocent, i guess. her acting is  not the best but she tries and doesnt go over the top just to look cute.ep 5's bridal mask is probably shunji, because isnt it too early for kang to to take on his brother's role?also, joo won is a PERFECT fit for the role kang to because his eyes are intense and he has a baby face and he has good chemistry with mok dan AND he can act without worrying about his appearance, which i find a lot of k actors don't do in dramas.P.S. this show is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good <3

The sad love story of Kang To and Mok Dan is officially started.

The drama “Bridal Mask” of KBS which is airing on Wednesday and Thursday at 9:55pm reached the rating of 4th episode on 15,6%. Currently stay on the first place of Wed-Thurs drama.

On that day episode, Kang To after knowing who Mok Dan is, he suffers on a torn-heart pain, “Mok Dan is Boon Yi, my first love, who I thought was dead”

Mok Dan came back to the restaurant to find the knife. At that moment, Kang To wants to capture Mok Dan in order to make Bridal Mask (Gaksital) appears so he goes to the restaurant too. Mok Dan after being captured by Kang To, she keeps saying she doesn’t know who is Gaksital, she just come back because of looking for the knife.

Kang To saw the knife, he is so shocked to say anything. He recognize that knife is the knife he gave to to Boon Yi- the girl he likes, he always thought that Boon Yi was dead. After exploring who Mok Dan really is, Kang To sits on the floor with a terrified eyes and started to cry.

At night, Kang To drinks so much and say: “In order to capture Gaksital, I can kill my first love, cut her into pieces”, Shunji beats him after hearing that. With a broken heart, Kang To comes back home to find his brother Kang San (Shin Hyun Joon’s role), he hugged his brother’s back and started to share with his brother his bad mood.

Once again facing the line of death and live of the girl he loves, Kang To says: “In this world, I have to be loyal with them to make sure our family will safe and all of us will survive. Except for this way, I really don’t know how to protect us, brother, please say something to help me”. Kang San, who pretend that was sleeping, started to cry after hearing those sentences.

The viewers commented that they felt hurt and sorry for Kang To and Mok Dan’s love. Especially they really want to cry on the scene Kang To’s in pain and cries on the back of Kang San

This story runs really deep. At first glance, the typical good guy vs bad guy story could be used in application to Japanese vs. Korean. But it is not that way at all. There is no black and white, good and evil, but just differences in perspective. Just because Lt. Konno is Chief of the Japanese Police Department doesn't mean he's a bad guy. Just because you think what you are doing is good, does it mean you are right?

This black and white, good vs evil mentality has been molded into Kang-to's persona. It's interesting to see the knife as the symbol that will shed this cold character with a warped perception of justice into the man he used to be. Metaphorically speaking, this knife that was a gift to the woman he loves can also easily stab him in the heart(I guess this could also happen literally). I probably don't expect Mok Dan to be warming up to him for quite awhile.

I never read the comic, but apparently Shinju is supposed to become the antagonist opposite Gakistal. I'm very interested in his transformation as well if this is indeed true. His motive is probably very well that his relationship with Dan Mok is doomed from the start and jealously will flip his switch. I wonder if he's going to fight for sheer fact of the one-sided love or will he become part of his father's corrupt organization.

To be honest, I don't care much for Dan Mok at this stage of the drama. She's just a helpless romantic who has been leashed to a knife for 13 years. Although she can fight, she's basically that damsel in distress waiting for her knight to magically pop out of nowhere. I'm pretty sure I'll open up to like her when she finds out who the knife guy really is. Then I can see more confusion, anger, angst, and character development from her.

And omg I can't wait for the Rei/Kang-to relationship to develop. Her character is so compelling and just sheer awesome. She's bad*** and the man he loves is the same man that will eventually become Gakistal, the one man she wants to kill. It's like a ticking time bomb on a roller coaster. Will she be like Kang-to and transform because of love or stay loyal to her "father"? In the episode 5 preview, she says his name twice and asks if it was destiny. Love at first sight was that super slow-mo scene on episode 4. She seems like the type of woman that gets what she wants. Is it wrong if I ask her to manipulate Kang-to to at least trust her or maybe even like her a bit? I want more jealousy and conflict!


2 more days. Gosh, it's killing me and I only started this show yesterday. I'm hooked.

I don't think Mok Dan is a hopeless romantic who has been leashed to a knife for 13 years. IMO, the fact that she's still holding onto the knife so dearly is symbolic. In a sense, the knife constantly reminds her that the world still consists of good people despite the catastrophes lashed upon her. I don't see it as some childish/wistful romance. The knife is the thing that keeps her going because the person who gave it to her came to her during the time of desperation. Little Kang To was able to give her hope that there is a chance to survive in this cruel world. Remember when little Mok Dan pleaded Kang To's father to allow her mother and herself to travel with them? If I'm not mistaken, it was Kang To that asked his father to allow them to. I have short term memory, so correct me if I'm wrong ^^;. Henceforth, Mok Dan believes that if she hangs onto the knife (like a good luck charm), then she will finally be able to meet the great guy who once gave her hope in times of despair. I don't see the knife as something that regresses her character into a damsel in distress, but rather makes into a fighter that she is today. Besides, she was kidnapped because she was there at the wrong time for the most part - haha.

wait... doesn't shunji's brother accuse shunji of being gaksital in the preview anyways? i mean, with the "you saved the girl, you saved lee kangto" accusation?

anyways, i just have a bunch of random thoughts.

rie and kangto aren't going to be linked romantically, are they? doesn't seem like it to me. i thought the slow-mo was aiming for the "they're going to be arch nemesis" effect.

and that DOES look like kangto in the gaksital disguise in the preview. anticipation is eating me! hurry, wednesday!
