100 levels of killing. Man. Like seriously? That be a LOT of kills per level.

100 levels just to kill thousands of people/ NPCs is rather mindless. Like boringly mindless. To want to play and be addicted to.

 

Yeah, that is a lot of killing NPC's to get those levels. I think we're supposed to believe that this game is so addictive that people will want to play it endlessly to get to higher levels. Though, to be frank, only 3 people have reached about 90, I think. SJ who created the game, Marco who was the first player other than SJ and was probably helping test it as well, and JW who deliberately set out to get to those levels on a hunch that he has to be at that level in order to be able to find SJ. So, there has been some acknowledgement of the requirements to go to those levels, especially as fast as JW has, and even JW had commented on the time and boredom involved in just mindlessly leveling.

 

Having said all that, I don't think the writer is a serious gamer if a gamer at all and has taken a number of liberties with gaming. The key here is hat this is a fantasy drama, after all, where the fantasy element has to do with how a gaming world potentially interacts with the real world. It's a cute conceit, but not to be taken seriously if you don't want to end up in a ball of frustration.

Besides if anything breaks the OTP apart I was expecting him to need to detox. For the time jump. Or get liver failure. Or pancreatitis man from all that alcohol abuse. After all I was counting that the guy was drinking about 50 standard drinks minimum daily. If what is shown is right. Real life people don't walk away from this sort of abuse without consequences. Or go cold turkey like he did. Or be able to drive her ( the drive before the kiss ) and have his alcohol level drop and not be DUI. 

 

I would agree with you, except that this isn't very realistic on a number of fronts, so I wasn't expecting realism on this one as well. I just assumed that for whatever reason, JW was going in and out of his alcoholic binges, and she happened to find him in a moment of more clarity. Again, if I thought about it realistically, this drama would drive me mad.

Just hard to believe this middle aged millionaire with 2 ex- wives ( therefore having had sex duh), an aggressive businessman ( you don't get to be a successful entrepreneur by being passive ), a successful student is this pure, innocent ( emotions I mean. He is rather decent/ somewhat considerate as a boyfriend ), restraint physically when it comes to his dating style ( his kissing style. He kisses like he is dating for the 1st time ). Hello, with his looks he would have been like a campus idol.

 

Well, he is a tech geek, despite looking like a total babe, so he could be more puppy than wolf in the romance department, having ignored romance except for first wife. Heck, if he had been more savvy, his first wife may not have fallen in love with his best friend instead and he may not have married a shrew for a second wife on the rebound.

 

As for his kissing style and physical restraint, that is just pure kdrama. Though, I don't remember seeing that many kissing scenes of HB actually. Perhaps HB himself is rather shy?

 

Anyway, I'm also not as vested in the romance of this drama as I am in the mysteries, I have to say. I like the romance purely for the fact that I fancy JW so much, so hope he gets his happy ending with the only woman that he's known who has cried for him and cared for him without any ulterior motives. Other than that, the mysteries are being slowly revealed, and though the explanations aren't entirely satisfactory because they ask too much on the mystical level, they'll do. I'm enjoying this drama a lot. I also love the acting and the atmosphere in this drama. I find myself getting tense watching JW and HJ go through their various travails. Anyway, 1 more week to the two final episodes. I hope they're good onces.

Lol @stroppyse see? Did tell you it take a lot for me to gush. I am so deprived of HB that I am enjoying watching it. So don't get me wrong about him. I actually just went to page 1 to double check its a tvN drama. The kissing must be from the writer or PD's instructions. Or the actors. Cos' it ain't because of the station which allows better kissing scenes.

 

I will watch it. To the end. Just that I woke up at 5am and I wrote this after reading spoilers. This is the W drama writer isn't it? I watched that whole drama as well.

 

I am halfway though a 6 book sci fantasy series I am going back to. Just that watching this has made me get an urge for a hardcore sci fiction series about having alternate realities. I have a cousin who writes defence system software. I am going to make her watch this and see her brain explode. Hahaha.

 

Its all good. HB is eye candy so I would watch this to the end. Besides I have a really soft spot for Minju. Her chemistry and relationship with JW is just adorable.

Hello, with his looks he would have been like a campus idol.

But he is HJ first boyfriend to my understand! A real, wise and caring man, that really cares and loves the person he is with, regardless of his pass experience, will not jump and force himself on the woman. He knows how and when to step up the relationship in a assertive and secure way, and get what they both want! As well as, a woman that knows what she wants and secure of herself worth, will be smart, wise, and assertive to guide her relationship , and not let herself be manipulated out of the scare of loose the man, into situations that she might note be ready for ! They both should be mature and emotionally ready to take steps that will define their relationship and care on the consequences. Dramas many times are a teaching institutes! :thumbsup:

What does one do with a watch/timekeeper?

A Spanish navigator in 16th century uses it to keep track of time of day, hence longitude for navigation

A Mayan astrologer in the 7th century uses it (sundial) to keep track of the time of year...for  important sacrificial ceremonies

A high school student uses it to keep track of time, to finish the test

A power grid operator  uses it to synchronize the various power plants, lest they overload.

 

CEO Yoon Jin-woo uses time/watch for..... hanky panky!

 

Which do Soompian think is the better usage of time???

Yes, and yes. Totally agree on both counts. Actually, JW looks so darn sexy when he's being all sniper or fighter. He's so bored of the fighting by now that none of it really affects him even. He's just blam-blam-blam, all gone. :lol:  And, MJ and JW have a rapport that is definitely most adorable.

 

And, I'm also enjoying the romance as long as I take it for what it is. It is pretty tame by tvN standards, plus even PSH has done steamier scenes in at least one previous drama that I can remember (Doctors), and the writer also wrote W which had its share of steam, which is why I'm speculating that perhaps it's HB who doesn't want to go there. Anyway, I'm okay with it as it is. I think in terms of HJ and JW, the only thing that I had wanted to see which it doesn't look as if it's going to happen is for HJ to become a fighter as well, so that HJ and JW could Mr. and Mrs. Smith it in the game world.

That's a good point. It is HJ's first romantic outing, and I still think that JW's previous relationships may just not have been all that, for whatever reason.  From your point, I'm surprised that HJ is restraining herself so much actually. JW may be giving HJ time, but I would have thought that HJ would be totally curious. And, I realize that there is a desperate battle going on in JW's life, but there were some opportunities for HJ to take the lead.

 

Okay, so now, I know what I want from this OTP couple. I want HJ to take the lead on JW. :D:wub:

@alcides14ahjumma yeah. In the ideal world. That's why I said the writer gave JW that sort of backstory. Then suddenly makes him the ideal 1st boyfriend. When he apparently wasn't that mature/ sensitive/ wise in his 1st 2 relationships. Not force himself * cough, cough * but we do have HB and PSH's looks and them 2- only had 2 relationships between them.

 

And tbh, JW is HOT and smexy. First boyfriend or not.. she was 29. Boy she has restraint. And zero urge to jump his bones. And yeah this ahjumma ( not me the hairdresser calls me ahjumma ) just looks at her and goes " woman, a man like HB does not come along in any woman's lifetime. "  

 

Kdramas either represent the makjang. Or the stage of a teenage relationship in the teen romance. And yes currently am in book 3 of a teen romance leading to marriage. Did say I read a lot. The series is shelved under Teen Fiction in the library... I am not making it up.

 

Anyway there was a reason why I can't watch both episodes. It is Monday morning here. And have to get to work. Have no clue how some people can watch Kdramas in the office. We would get fired if not more surfing the Internet at work. Well not fired but we are too busy to go on the Net.

 

Ciao guys. Enjoy dissecting it.

i am only interested in knowing where was SJ going for his bathroom breaks in the last 1 year.. and food (but less priority.. where was his bathroom)

 

****************

and i hope they don't pull .. SJ knew the only way he can be freed is if someone else takes his place.. that would be evil :P

 

His call with HS after marco died.. shows how cool he can be when it comes to handling situation.. he maynot be able to fight physically but mentally he is quite sharp..

 

The way he answered HS.. its chilling murderer way of answering.. "He can't go through with the deal".. normal person would have been crying and saying marco got hurt

All depends the goal of the relationship. 

And, as I said, Dramas many times are teaching Institutes! 

I am an ahjumma for real, happily married for over 22 years with same man, my partner in crimes and best friend, and with wonderful kid( even though he is an adult I still see him as a kid). I enjoy watch Park Shin Hye’s dramas and diehard fan of her with all the respects. And, her acting makes me fall for her costars, that I want to adopt them. 

MOA and HB and SH acting, have taken me into a new unique, enjoyable, happy world of dramas! 

Not trying to undermine HB hotness,  uniqueness, or burst your bubble,  but It can be reproduce! Good nutrition , exercise, good self care( including enhancements) what is very common and normal since our ancestors , and good makeup artist, and voila! Lol! But, indeed the personality, it will be a jackpot! :relieved:

So I just finished watching today's episode, I said it before and I'll say it again Hyun Bin is just SO AMAZING!! ( what he was wearing in this episode makes him look extra hot so there's a bonus :p)

I pity JW so much he's obviously so exhausted and tired of this game, he wants it to end so badly he's even begging a god he never believed in, and I hope he achieved it, now that SJ is back, but we don't know how or where did JW disappear to after that, it was a whole day, JW was gone first thing in the morning and SJ only appeared in the night, I guess we're getting more flashbacks next episode * sigh*

 

Will HJ look for him again in the next episode ?? will she do something, I'm still so bummed that HJ didn't do much in the story except be an emotional support to those who love her JW included, the fact that she couldn't do anything but wait helplessly, in today's episode she tried she really did but it was a  failure (my blame is on the writer ) but her relationship with JW is so sweet, these two really have a very special bond, something that makes them both still hope in something better, JW to end the game and find SJ and HJ to stay strong for both for her and everyone she loves ( including JW) I hope we'll see them enjoy their relationship more in the next episode and get a few days of rest from all this holabaloo ( PETITION FOR PSH AND HB TO WORK ON ANOTHER DRAMA TOGETHER, DON'T WASTE ALL THAT CHEMISTRY ) 

 

Now for what I didn't like, what in the world is the deal YR made with Prof.Cha ??? To make her so nervous and so on edge feeling like she's loosing it all ?? What did that old **** promise her ?? And what kind of self respecting investigator would take the word of drunk woman who could barely walk to the police station and order a warrant especially when this  *witness* words don't add up with the official doctor's examination of the victim ?? very very illogical, and very frustrating cause I still don't see any importance to YR or give a damn about her or her evil deeds. 

Soo Jin on the other hand represents another type of frustration, like can you speak woman?? Her deciding to take her own life and LEAVING her one year old baby, even while knowing his grandfather doesn't care about him, why ??? I have to guess that she has some sort of responsibility, in how HS was probably right with his suspicions, that Soo Jin wanted to go back to JW, but still, committing suicide is too much.

 

Next week, I don't know how it'll play out, can we bring back past character ?? HS and Sec.Seo ??I personally want at least the Seo back,  but how ? their bodies are already cremated/buried , if the writer wants to delete all the effects of the game then she'll have to make the story reset, something ala Jumanji, but I don't know how she'll do it and how it'll make sense, because Jumanji was more like magic, whil this game ? not so sure. 

 

That's all I have to say, I like this drama very much and it saddens me it's over next week, I have so many things to say about it, but I'll wait till the finale to gather up all my thoughts as a whole. For now I'm praying for a happy ending with a happy OTP and happy dimples and lots of kisses and hugs, and of course more MJ and JW interactions, oh and don't forget a good lecture to behave SJ on making this terrible game.

For a moment I thought that its weird that JW slammed that

small door in the restaurant, but then I realised he did it for HJ. :wub:

So the police stop questioning her, and start chasing after him.

Nice. :)

 Yura said on the phone conversation with Prof. Cha: "I'm giving my statement as I promised to you. I'm in a mood, so I told them what you wanted me to say and I spiced up a bit. I probably deserve more shares for the extra work I've done." The continued angrily " I don't know what you're scheming with Jin Woo, but my patience has limits. I walked away empty-handed, so I bet you thought I was a big joke." (I assume she was referring to divorce). And threatened Prof. Cha "I'll tell the police that you coerced me into committing perjury, and what you did to steal your daughter-in-law's assets."  (She definitely has some inside info regarding the plot). 

So, I guess the answer is money. 

There's a back plot very nicely embroidered in the main story: money, power and opportunists. 

Yu-ra is one of them. A frustrated opportunist who seemed to have played the wrong card again. "Did Jin Woo fooled us again or what". Her manager said referring to Prof. Cha: "he just used us to threaten him and ditched us. Do you understand? [..] I told you not to use your stupid head". I found interesting he's constantly referring to "us". Probably he's the brain using her celebrity status and good looks to get money from her marriage at first (I remembered she said somewhere in a discussion in the previous episodes "loveless marriage"); then getting involved in schemes and intrigues of Prof. Cha. But, she rebelled against the men authority (manager, prof. Cha, lawyer) and decided to sort it out her way.

[Memories of Alhambra] Ep 14 spoilers, Hyun Bin x Park Shin Hye

Posted on Sunday, January 13, 2019

 
Article: Naver 'Memories of Alhambra' Han Bo Reum makes a false statement for Park Hoon's case "Hyun Bin killed him" 


1. [+1987,-4]
There were no signs of him being strangled.. But with just her statement.. he's not even a serial killer.. they are putting him on wanted list..? 


2. [+1093,-10]
This is so frustrating, seriously. 


3. [+1123,-47]
Wow.. the first 15 mins of today's episode is filled with flashbacks and the past scenes. It's been 30 mins now, and he's been running around in the city. ㅋㄱㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㄱㄲㄱㅋㄲ The production team has no conscience. 


4. [+1017,-38]
A drama that one doesn't need to watch, if not for Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye. 


5. [+581,-17]
Han Bo Reum, her acting is too... She acts as if her beauty is deadly. I can feel that she's trying so hard, so much that I feel uncomfortable watching her. 


6. [+334,-3]
Next week's the final episode, looks like it's going to end with reaching level 100 and saving Se Joo. What is this? Trying to save Se Joo for 16 episodes?


7. [+312,-10]
This is a drama that makes one lose interest. It was really interesting in the beginning, but now, I'm watching it while looking at my phone. 


8. [+265,-7]
Memories of Alhambra Sweet Potatoes. [t/n: sweet potatoes = frustration]


9. [+264,-6]
Ah.. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Scriptwriter, please add some context. There were no signs of suffocation found in the autopsy, does it make sense that they are after Hyun Bin just because of Go Yoo Ra's statement? This is absurd. 


10. [+255,-7]
But they did mention that even if he isn't limping in the game, the CCTVs would show that he's limping... He was running today... So, is he running while limping in reality..? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ What's this? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ The special items too. They were made freely without any restrictions. If that's the case, they should've made something invincible.. ㅋㅋ Like the game, this drama has lots of errors. 


 
Spoiler

alhambra14.png

Article: Naver 'Memories of Alhambra' Hyun Bin gives Emma the golden key 'quest complete' … Chanyeol returns

1. [+7280,-203]
200 billion won for the production... They should give Hyun Bin a huge chunk of it.. If not for Hyun Bin, I wouldn't be watching this till now... I'm hanging on because I like seeing Hyun Bin. What's with the directing skills and the scriptwriter's writing skills? Seriously.. When the hawk appeared, I still had a little hope in me, but what is this.. This isn't a C-drama, why are they repeating scenes that were shown in the beginning..? If this is too much for them to handle, they could've just finish it within 12 episodes.. Viewers these days have high standards, they dislike draggy scenes... Look at SKY Castle, their production fees are only a third of this, but everyone is crazy over it. I'm going to watch next week's episodes because I feel that it's a waste since I've followed it till now.. Please don't disappoint.. The only good thing about this drama is Hyun Bin is renewing his peak again. 


2. [+4803,-138]
Seriously, whenever I watch this drama, I kept thinking if the scriptwriter sees viewers as idiots. I don't get annoyed or angry just once or twice. I think it's right that I'm an idiot. When Hyun Bin was swinging the fire at them, I smiled and when I was about to get angry, Hyun Bin's close-up on the side of his face in church left me amazed. And the corners of my lips went up when they threw in a kiss scene that has no context and is old.. Guess I'm an idiot for Hyun Bin.... 


3. [+4057,-76]
Someone should hit Se Joo on the back... You should sort out everything on your own now, Se Joo-ya... 


4. [+2699,-55]
From Secretary Seo to his ex-wife.. How is Yoo Jin Woo going to take it? This is my first time seeing such a pitiful male lead. Hyun Bin is so handsome and his acting is so good that I feel bad for him even more. 


5. [+2191,-84]
The development felt like I had eaten more than 1000000 sweet potatoes.


6. [+973,-13]
The quest has ended, but why am I not feeling the satisfaction or happy at all?~


7. [+800,-11]
No, ㅋㅋㅋㅋ but there were no signs of murder. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He believed someone who is drunk, that he was strangled and put Hyun Bin on wanted?? The scriptwriter mentioned that he died from excessive bleeding... And you can only talk to Emma if you're above level 5, is Hee Joo an exception...? But still, it's the last episode next week, I'll watch it. Please let Yoo Jin Woo be happy. 


8. [+798,-31]
That Sang Beom who's like a family, why does he own a Lexus worth 1 billion won? Did he sell thousands of guitars already? I have nothing to say about the development since a few episodes ago. But even if it's an ad, they should match it with the character. 

 

cr. https://melohwa.blogspot.com/2019/01/memories-of-alhambra-ep-14-spoilers.html

 

 

I totally agree the police investigation does not make sense...maybe they just want him in for investigation purposes and the more JW runs the more suspicious they get. This writer like many has made the police look so stupid

 

Looks like kneitz isnt too happy with the writers work...I agree there is no rules in the game, it's becoming to draggy with the flashbacks over flashbacks making it so confusing. If this is her style of writing :crazy: Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye is carrying the weight of this drama. *sigh* Let's hope it doesnt effect the ratings particularly for next week finale. 

 

"Congratulations MOA team on 10%"

Wow. Thats a lot of moneyyy~

 

But i have to agree with some points by this knetz comment (source: melohwa)

 

1. [+7280,-203] 200 billion won for the production... They should give Hyun Bin a huge chunk of it.. If not for Hyun Bin, I wouldn't be watching this till now...

---

i personally find quality speaks as evident from Sky Castle. Sky Castle is 1/3 of MotA's budget. But the writing is tight, the story is engaging. It pulls viewers in. It has no big names in the cast to rely on. The casts are veterans and young actors/actresses. It was not promoted heavily, nor was the promotion skewed (i'm looking at you emma!). SKY castle started with 1%ish ratings and now its 19% with for more episodes to go.

 

Unfortunately the comments about MotA is not as positive. K-viewers find it draggy and very reliant on HB. Luckily there's only 2 episodes to go. Let it end with about 8-10%ish ratings while they can. If its dragged too long, the ratings might plummet too.
