I just love hoe hyun bin said his his cheeky, flirty lines to PSH with his handsome-poker-ly manner, "it's it too fast? We just started for 4 hours." my mind got all dirty. Why let him sleep on the sofa? They are adults. Adults not saints! 

And he complained about the sofa not comfortAble subtle way of saying to sleep in HJ’s bed :lol:

Oh my gosh, you crack me up there. He's already forty. So if the time jumps for at least 1 year later. He'll be 41. Just don't jump to 10 years. LOL

Ep 12 had so much PPL...now Im beginning to not care about it. MOA has been more creative in using it. Subway to increase game health, Swarovski earrings to create the cutest couple banter ever, did I miss anything else lol!  Bet these earrings will be a sellout 

Same here. They did it well. I'm not really bothered by those PPLs. Don't forget the morning coffee latte, etc. I love that scene!

so sad to read news about how it's common that many productions are having or had funding issues  to a point where they couldnt pay their casts or crew. :crazy: These PPL helps fund the dramas so why not. I can overlook them. 

Agreed. Well said.

Usually we have men shower scene but in MOA it's reversed haha, we haven't had the required subway date, I am waiting for that one lol:P

That's what I thought. I hope it would be JW who would have done it in his glass booth. Bwahaha..

 

Okay, so when will they release bts of ep 11-12? ;) This will make me hang on till Saturday comes again.

Lol at this knetz comment:

 

“Today’s episode consisted of 50 minutes of product placement and 10 minutes of actual story,” (Source: a soompi article)

 

Which is kinda true. Because the story picked up in the final few minutes of ep 12. Hahaha

Actually in the drama, they have 12 years gap. When they're in Gramada, she's 27 and he's 39. After one year, she's 28 and he's 40 now. I'm expecting her to call him oppa. But I guess that might sound corny. Ahjussi is unique. :lol:

 

IKR!! Indeed he loves teasing her. They could be a great family. Hope it will be ended with the two got married. Hahaha. I love him taking care her sister while she's not there. 

 

Isn't she 29 already?  She's 27 when they first met and then JW left Granada on her birthday so she's 28 then.  After a year, it's her birthday again so she's supposed to be 29.

No, I think it's her 27. The oppa who almost like family said that she kept delaying to celebrate it. And he insisted that she should come cause he had gathered some of their friends to arrange the party with her. 

 

But I think you right. He said that day is her birthday. So she's turned to 28 already back then and JW was in his 40. Goshhh.. they must hurry. LOL

I love episode 12.. especially when JW showed up in HJ house to accompany MinJu. He really takes care of this family then. And in the morning he makes the toast for MJ and HJ then. JW or perhaps HB is really good looking in this morning. haha.. Looking more fresh, having able to sleep more comfortable in the sofa! 

 

I think I got addicted to HyunBin (again!) in MOA. But his acting on subtle emotions are killing it so much in MOA. Little things from his emotions, we can see it through. 

 

I wonder how Prof Cha’s feeling to see his son “alive”... Is it him who reports to the police to investigate JW again? Could it be that he called the police to cancel it in the next episode?

 

And, why HJ does not call JW “oppa”? just curious.. is it because he is already ahjussi?

I like all JWs smiles.

- ''the princess and the wolf'' smile

- even this ''jerk'' smile, when he told HJ that she is being

swayed by MJs crazy ideas

 

- the dangerously sexy smile, when he warned HJ not to

give her cellphone to no one

- that soft smile, when he told HJ that he missed her

 

Ofcourse, these smiles in the car are like icing on a cake. :wub:

Family-like oppa need to vanish urgh he is really annoying. I wonder why they don't use Bin's real age haha so the gap wouldn't be that far:D

I'd love to be greeted by HB's face every morning lol, maybe because the age gap in the drama is quite big, also they aren't that close....yet, and for teasing purpose too:lol:

 

I'm glad I got to know (and addicted to) Hyunbin through MOA:wub: his smiles, grins, smirks, and especially dimples are to die for:lol:

The night when JW left suddenly from Granada, the candles on HJ birthday cake was 27... It doesn't matter how old she is, they just need to hurry and get married so MJ and all of us will be happy :D

Whatever the plot twists or how absurd the romance may presents, I just love watching MoA with all those goodness and its flaws. Despite with all of those, somehow this drama keep drawing me in, I'm impatiently waiting the episodes every week, talking about it anywhere anytime, watching their BTS and rewatching my faves episodes over and over. MoA really takes over my life for weeks already. It's what you can call it pretty alluring.

I found out something while I was rewatching ep 12. While the policeman was checking JinWoo's identity card, the card shows 2020.09.23 to 2020.10.23. Was it about the validity of the card or the expiry date?

Soo.. I check HB birthday.. turns out he is not 40 yet.. Only in the drama that he is already 40.. B) in reality, HB is born in 1982, PSH in 1990. So PSH is in her real age in the drama, while HB is older in the drama. Then, ahjussi it is :D

 

And turns out I’ve only watched Park Shin hye in The Heirs.. So while reading comments on her improved skill for kissing, I cannot comment on that. I think the kiss is in the right time, while JW is so vulnerable and needs someone to rely on. And we know from previous episodes that JW already gives more attention to HJ and has feeling for her. I love that the kiss shows PSH shoes. The shoes also moves, as in showing she is not only standing steady, but really drown in the kiss itself..

I know I am very laaatee to the party(its wedding season) but I guess party is still on..ha..:)

Anyways, I will just give my analysis about the episodes as a whole because I watched them together and it turns out that if I watch the episodes in the same go, they actually become very cohesive.

 

Here..

 

The Hubby-Wifey Couple: I actually read the comments all the way back to page 120 and I get the impression that they are two views regarding the kiss. I understand that there will always be the debate whether the romance was forcefully inserted or was it a slow-budding gradual development. There are always two sides of the coins, and in Literature we say that both views should be respected as long as they are supported with references. The fact that we are still debating after 12 episodes is an indication that the writer took narrative liberty; you can perceive the OTP as you want to. 

To me they always gave off that hubby-wifey feeling. They were never cutesy, flowery or clingy couple. In the early episodes there were questions about HeeJu's feelings for JinWoo and now its vice versa. It took 11 episodes for the kiss to happen(approx one and a half year in the drama). And the reluctance was always from JinWoo's side; he finally decided to give in only when HeeJu decided to adamantly stick around. It wasn't only Park's phone call that initiated the kiss; it was her stubbornness of not leaving and then her affirmation that yes I will stick around even if others don't, that's why he narrated the story of his past. He wanted to say that.."hey its not easy being around me and most of my closed ones are either dead or my enemies..so lady are you sure you want to jump in this fire???"

 

As someone here mentioned, the kiss was the only way of confirmation(it could have been sex if this was a Hollywood show..lol:P), an intimate confirmation because a mere 'yes' would not have been sufficient for JinWoo as he has been betrayed far more times to trust only a 'yes'. It had to be something more than that..

 

The kiss ranks as one of my all time favourite K-drama kisses(the list includes KMHM, W). It was beautifully shot. I am glad that PSH also showed some passion and all work was not done by HB only. The lower lip biting, the passion, the movement of lips, the dropping of umbrella, the grabbing of jacket(PSH does that quite often)...loved every bit of it! Watched it multiple times on instagram..:wub:

 

My eyes are still on you Daddy Cha 

Those slaps, they are still ringing! First CHS and now JW both are now deemed as traitors, by none other than Daddy Cha. CHS died believing that JinWoo and Daddy were accomplices in ousting him but that was never the case, CHS was made to believe that JW is betraying him hence he led an affair with SuJin in retaliation. Another thing that struck me was that SuJin had a child with CHS but not with JW even though I guess they were married for much longer and also the fact that Daddy conducted a DNA test to believe her plus YuRa's testimony that CHS had suspicions about SuJin having a fling with JinWoo again. I am starting to believe that it is Daddy+Park+SuJin+third person=JW's make life hell..

 

Also, Daddy's shock while he saw zombie Cha didn't look convincing to me..he could be acting. 

 

The preview 

HeeJu saw Emma, I think JW has introduced her to the game and the first thing he shows is Emma. He said he needs her help and the only help he needs is in the game. IDK if she will play the game or not or whether he will risk such a step but at least she is aware of the game now. Also, IDK why but I never was satisfied with the fact that a real person was used as a game character, I always knew that it will some how come back to haunt them..eerie feeling..:ph34r:

 

The only question I have is about zombie Cha and server relationship..when zombie Cha appeared in HeJu's guitar room, was the server on or off?? Is shutting off the server the eventual solution to all problems??

@gomugomu618 Jin Woo's birthday is on 4 Mar 1980 according to his passport that he showed Hee Joo in ep 3 while she was about signing the contract. So he would be 39 in 2019, in Korean age is 40. I think so.

Another two weeks of Zombie Monday. U know, when u forgo ur sleep just to watch MOA. Worth it though. 

 

Last night episode just make my day. I'm smiling through out the day with my dimple showing. Yes, mine r the dimple family. My little bro even said that his dimple is the perfect one...lol..

 

I am so relief by last night episode. JW has a reason to smile. Serve him right with calling him Ajusshi. But now, he has 'adopted' family to return too. He might be a good brother to MJ and a cheeky grandson to granny. 

 

I hope this drama ends well. The glitch or error in the game will be resolved. The mysterious death will be explained and put to rest. The missing will be found. J One company will be able to be proud of the MOA game and a huge success. Of course we want JW n HJ live happily ever after.

Shutting off the server may stop zombie Cha (and other NPCs) from appearing -> AR problem solved, but also means the game can't be played and eventually lead JOne to its downfall -> the problem in real world. Cmiiw they said if the project failed then JOne would be bankrupt, and ofc they didn't want that to happen. That's why Jinwoo tries to complete the game to solve all possible problems (and find Seju).

Whoah... this is an ending that I want. But I think it's better for me to set my expectation lower.

lol You're right.  I went back on episode 6 and the candles said so.  But in episode 1, HJ's sister told JW that she's only 27. So trying-hard-family-like oppa is right that HJ kept on delaying her birthday as mentioned by @stargazer187.  lol
