Recommended Posts

So I just finished watching MA premier raw.. it's the turn of Signal. He he.  Waiting.

 @phi3nk @liddi @larus @Orion and others you know who you are.. he he. Come on chingus, lets watch  I've been waiting for this since..since I learned about this back Sept. :D Somebody Live recap, I hope ehem..@andy78 :P 

@phi3nk crime procedural / crime action thriller suspense.. my cup of tea! oh yeah. And because LMIYD just ended.. glad there's Signal to continue mind boggling drama.

*edit.. wait this is 10 not 11pm? it's only going to be 10 pm now, right? nvm, I missed the live raw :(  thanks for the video @ larus. I'm gonna watch it raw later.

@jongski I thought it starts at 8:30PM KST... and at least for Ep1, it is 1hr 18mins. Wonder if this length will be the norm for the entire drama. Whatever it is, can't wait to watch soon.

@liddi Huh? 8:30 pm?????  I thought it will start at 11... so I was s happy cos I was able to watch JTBC Madame Antoine premier around that time.  And between MA and Signal, I'd have have chosen to start Signal but anyway, thanks chingu for  letting me know.  Wow 1 hr 18mins. This must be good one! excited, I'll check the raw later!!! :D

*edit: Dang,  I realized now why I got confused. I was also thinking of the other crime drama- the  premier of Local Hero (OCN) it's the one at 11 pm but that would the following day  Sat.. 23rd

 Just watched raw! whew! Already my current favorite!

I like everything about this. The muted tones, suspense, the eeriness. The acting. LJH.

I like KHS character as well but I need to understand better also the other male lead.

Most scenes are highlights for me but I'll mention  a couple

Sad  quiet despair of the mother waiting, looking, seeking.. about her little girl! Everyday she was standing at the school,  in front of the police station. Lee Je Hoon character witness to the years of waiting.

The eerie scene when he went inside the building  then outside and then saw the  remains of victim. The scene with KHS and when he was saying something to the reporters. His emotions and anger.

Of course I didn't understand  the dialogue the whole 1:16.18 episode. I hope this would be sub quickly.

*edit. excuse my hyper post. for those wanting to just wait and watch with sub,  I don't mean to give away anything. I'll put spoiler tag with my thoughts for some scenes next time.

Ehehe. I will be watching the first 4 together, probably, so I can do the first look piece. Or maybe 2 and 2.
I prefer focusing on one show at a time, in order to give it my full attention. But I hear reactions were good!

@jongski Thank you for your very effusive post! Hearing your excitement makes me all the more eager to watch it! Not to mention @Orion's comment about good reactions...yay!

Read this from the Misaeng thread (thank you @sky5joyous!)... PD-nim is inserting funny, make-believe references to Misaeng in his new drama :D Hope we get to see gems like these from Kim Eun Hee, as well as in reference to the other cast as well. Can't wait for subs!

I was half-way through with C-subs but I see that English subs are now available. So far I'm enjoying the ingenious way in which the director goes back and forth over the two time periods. The stylistic aspect of the show is very strong and smart.

It's not a bad introductory episode so far if a bit cliched -- childhood connections --> guilt --> career in law enforcement. Bad first meeting --> cops butt heads. Loner cop working in a highly politicised environment, up against incompetent leadership and colleagues.

The last 15 minutes was quite the nail biter. Hope they get the perpetrator.

A good start, decent set up and very disciplined use of the time shift trope. The show really kicked in when our cocky lad found the relevant skeletal remains. His deductive display was very well done... kudos to the actor for doing a great job with his rapid fire delivery.

And I loved how he ruined the Superintendent's crowning moment. :D

Something about this show reminds me Star Trek (2009). It's as someone or something in the universe is attempting right wrongs. Reshifting the dynamics of key relationships back to what they should be as it were. The battery-less walkie talkie being the catalyst.

This one's definitely a keeper.

@Orion Yes! for good reactions!  Even with the first scene, I knew already I'm gonna like it!

@40somethingahjumma I also like the back and forth between two time period. It in a way it kind of reminds me of MBB. As you mentioned, the 'stylistic aspect' of the drama is good one.  Good observation with that rapid fire talking.  LJH talked a lot in rapid! fie adn I was just wow..

I gotta RT this...

RT why did lee je hoon talked too much though :D his talking speed was like 100words/min. (Cr: Anna)

@phi3nk   LJH <3 whole ep is thumbs up! Need to watch again with sub. :D

Signing in, team. I've been waiting for this. Does this show have anything to do with Memories of Murder?


Not sure. But I read in one site it's remake  of 2003 movie Memories of Murder.. About serial killings
