[Drama 2018-2019] Memories of the Alhambra | Recuerdos de la Alhambra, 알함브라 궁전의 추억

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since i saw a kdrama trending worldwide on twitter. The last time i saw it was DOTS. Hyun bin, MOA, PSH all trending on twitter tonight. How large MOA fanbase are. Sigh..what is done cannot be undone. Pray for them to collab once again. HB has been working 2 years non-stop so i guess, i might not see him on small screen in 3-5 years. :cold_sweat:

 

Uri PSH, let's kickass on your next project! Let's meet a good writer next time.

Memories of the Alhambra was another example of a show where the writers took a spectacular concept and turned it into a disappointing mess.So many blatant writing weakness.

Writer could have at least made them see each other... she totally messed up the ending

@bedifferent, go check out the "Guess the Abs" event instead and I'll see you there, though I don't think that HB has ever flashed his abs, post-military or not, despite having been a Marine when he was in service. If you have proof otherwise, I would love to see it. :)

 

@stroppyse Oh well.  Writernim...

Thank you for all the hard work and effort, cast and crew.  Till we meet again.  I hope they all get a vacation somewhere.

After reading all the reactions, I laughed a lot, but I was also surprised to see how badly this end had been digested.


I found some of the comments just incredible, evoking points that had completely escaped me.
Like the idea that JW had become the game's guardian against bugs, keeping his old behavior.

 

There are still some mysteries left, we haven't seen the scene where Emma kills Zinnu. What if it was Zinnu who killed Emma? Is JW really real in the end? Why didn't he come back before?
We learn from players that there is a character or a player who helps other players... but for how long? Is this recent? Was he in an instance dungeon before that?
The last scene where we see him in the shadows with his gun is a cult one.

I AM NOW RELYING ON FANFICS, GUYS! Y’ALL SHOULD START WRITING! :crazy:

 

As I am already writing a script for W season 2, I would not go into such a project. But there would be tons of ideas to develop, I can't help but have them. Since I haven't understood much of the story yet and I need to see it again, fortunately, that's the end of it! I don't want to relive the hurricane of ideas I've had in recent months so quickly, it was too exhausting, especially since it's not over yet.

No offence . . . but I actually really like the finale and thought the writer was brilliant.  From my perspective, in the end, Jin Woo died as the user Zinu, but remained as the "Master" of game.  

 

I can't quot everything, but it's very interesting.

I'm off to watch W drama again after this..i need to heal my heart..huhuhu

 

i really can't accept the fact that after they only show JW silhouette shooting the NPC and that's the ending!! WTF..I need to see more of his handsome face you knowww!!! I patiently waited and thought they will show HJ gonna meet JW at the park and it didn't happened.. this is the worst weekend I've spent in my whole life watching kdrama! Huwaaaa

 

It's so beautiful.
As several people have analyzed, this ending is very poetic, and appropriate for a modest and discreet relationship.

I take this opportunity to point it out, since you seem to like W very much, take a look in the fanfix forum, for season 2.

This is it i hate her i hate her i hate her, no sort of explanation can justify this ending for me I AM NEVER WATCHING ANY SJJ DRAMAS EVER AGAIN. 

 

Looks like the flashbacks finally beat you!
I am sure we will meet again in one or two years on this forum, for the next SJJ drama. That this drama will be great, and that it will upset you too! This scriptwriter is a spider whose web is very soft and pleasant, it is impossible to get out of it. Then, who knows why, in the end, she eats some of us. Personally, she never ate me!

The Jesus imagery was heavy in this episode again, but if you remember, Jesus was resurrected to heaven after he was crucified and killed on earth. So maybe Jin-woo's game self was killed and turned into dust but his real self was resurrected inside the game. 

 

It is a very brilliant idea, and perfectly supported by the fact that the realization emphasizes the image of Christ. This is a good indication of JW's future return at the end. When I saw the drama, I missed it.

HJ will meet JW eventually given that SJ can help him out as the developer of the game. But damn how much I hate open ending, at least give us a scene where HJ sees JW standing with a badass stance like that.

Done. It ended. But I don't feel that glad. They got everything reset and worked well. But why did they make that kind of ending. Open  ending it is. Just like Hwayugi now this drama did this again to me. I don't like to imagine the next episode in my head. Give me back my 16 hours!!!! :bawling:

 

@gilaswan have you watched the final? 

 

@kokodus @lynne22 did you see the episode yet?? I must tell u this. WLF's ost was being played during HJ and CEO Park in the cafe. Ah... I miss that drama now. I need to heal my heart. Sighhh... 

 

@bedifferent lol,  you give me some happiness there. I wish the same. All got rest well and enjoy their vocation somewhere. The drama production has been made for months. They have worked so hard. 

And I hope HB will have new drama or whatever soon!! I'm having withdrawal syndrome, unable to see him again on my weekend. I got to watch his recent movies now.

[Memories of Alhambra] FINALE Ep 16 spoilers, Hyun Bin x Park Shin Hye

 
Spoiler

alhambra.png

Article: Naver 'Memories of Alhambra' Hyun Bin survives in the game... a half happy ending with Park Shin Hye 


1. [+7295,-29]
The open ending is as if opening the lid of the ending. ㅡㅡ [t/n: 'opening the lid' can also mean 'blow one's top']

2. [+4380,-27]
Memories of Subway and Toreta. 


3. [+2316,-37]
Cancerous-hambra. 


4. [+1408,-31]
Even if you remove and switch out articles, you'll still get cursed. 


5. [+1452,-21]
It's a waste of Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye's acting. The scriptwriter should apologize to both of them. Especially Hyun Bin who had worked so hard. 


6. [+1396,-20]
Hyun Bin has been leading this drama till now, but is it real that he didn't appear in the final episode? ㅋㅋㅋ  He didn't appear during the first half of the episode yesterday, and today, only his silhouette appeared. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
- [+110,-1]
Hyun Bin has been doing a one-man show till now. I think he's taking a break on the final episode. The silhouette in the last scene was so funny. Why is Hyun Bin a bug and what does a reset do? There has to be a limit to open endings. They made it seem like Se Joo knows something important and they went around looking for Se Joo during the whole drama, in the end, he doesn't know anything. Hee Joo has been crying during all 16 episodes and all she does is look for Jin Woo. They turned everything that cannot be explained into a bug. What's this? 


7. [+1272,-12]
Isn't it a bug that there's an instant dungeon and it can't be seen in reality? It doesn't make sense. What about the Marco bug? If Jin Woo's a bug, then Se Joo should be a bug too. 
- [+292,-5]
Is Se Joo happy on his own...? He said that he might be dead so easily.. He isn't grateful...? Isn't he apologetic...? He made the level 100 quest that way and have killed someone, at the very least, he could have mentioned about the Instant Dungeon first. Why did the scriptwriter make Se Joo's character this way...? And he's now a genius developer, a President. 
- [+93,-1]
But to put it bluntly... The bug on Hyun Bin, there's no way that it won't happen again, right? To be honest, Jin Woo removed the bug and reset the game, but they did not find the reason for the bug, neither did they find a solution to it.. Whenever a bug happens and someone dies, are they going to delete the bug after that? Is that so? Seriously... 


8. [+1204,-18]
I thought that the ex-wife and the ex-ex-wife had something more to them, but I was wrong.. I'm still wondering why is there a need to Hee Joo's oppa's character... I thought Se Joo was the key, but I was wrong... I was wondering if Hyun Bin will escape from the game, but it ends with him living in the game forever... This is such a goosebumps-inducing makjang.. 


 
Spoiler

finale.png

Article: Naver ['Memories of Alhambra, goodbye'] Hyun Bin is alive, but no refreshing scenes till the end

1. [+437,-3]
This is the drama that I'm watching just for Hyun Bin. I will never watch Song Jae Jung's dramas again. Ah, my blood pressure is rising. 


2. [+242,-2]
To be honest, Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye did it, but this drama couldn't be saved. I won't watch any drama this scriptwriter writes anymore. Goodbye, drama that's filled with PPLs. 


3. [+240,-0]
The scriptwriter is a bug. Delete the scriptwriter. 


4. [+216,-4]
This drama is just about Hyun Bin doing all the action, Park Shin Hye being pretty, and Lee Seung Joon running here and there to clean up the mess... Nothing more and nothing less than that...  


5. [+140,-3]
I'm 21... I've got high blood pressure after watching this drama. 


6. [+77,-1]
Hyun Bin's a user, why is he a bug? There is no dead body, what's with the remains? I thought A [t/n: Park Hae Soo] who appeared in the beginning of the drama had something more to him, but he disappeared suddenly. Marco's the first bug, but he wasn't deleted? And how can the reset happen without doing that? Ah, seriously. This can't be explained... This damn drama, I'm a fool for watching this. 


7. [+63,-2]
I knew this would happen.... The captions at the end are funnier... Believing can change the world?? Is this an ad for public interest?


8. [+60,-1]
Because of the game Se Joo created, the boss of a company died.. Competent members of the society died.. But Se Joo isn't even guilty of it.. They made him a President, clapped for him.. And even asked him for autographs.. What is this? Who is the one responsible for turning Jin Woo into sugar..? Why is Hee Joo always running around crying..? I'm really speechless. 



[Did the scriptwriter get too confused midway and didn't know how to tie up loose ends? What happened? Unique plots like this are seriously rare in the kdrama world, it's such a waste. Too much fillers/recycling of scenes in between. It always felt like something is going to happen, and they end the episode. And in the next, nothing really happens. The cycle repeats. There are too many loopholes that it's impossible for the scriptwriter and the production team to overlook them all. I'm thinking if the budget or the PPLs had limited their story? I'd rather watch them exploring the game and doing quests for the first half than going around searching for someone by leveling up (without any lead) and running away for all 16 episodes because of the game interfering with reality. :') The scriptwriter is a little too obsessed with catching viewers' attention with the beginning episodes, she set the tension so high, piqued everyone's curiosity in the beginning and failed to maintain that because of the lack of ideas(?) But I guess I'll still be watching her dramas in the future because of how unique and attractive her story plots are and hopefully, she'll get better in tying up loose ends. Creative writers do get better, right? :') ]

I will do my best to stay strong and resist her, this ending just left a huge scar, and it's not even the flashbacks' fault

Anyways, I finally found the courage to watch this final episode, let's pray I don't throw my laptop on the floor before I finish it

@Kasmic my thought is since JW literally saved the game, answer for poll 2 is JW. But as I’m very disappointed and feel void of the answers we didn’t get but was made to supposingly get, I will just leave my zombie pic for a week more before changing it. Oh, how my heart aches when I think of that ending. It left a bigger void. I was hoping everything would unfold nicely but instead it just made me feel a bigger void. The beginning to the end..I still have questions unanswered :crazy:

Thanks @vangsweetie637 So the answer is JW...argh!!! 

Oh how I hate endings where not only is the OTP left "open" for their reunion but worse Im left with more questions than answers. :bawling:

 

SUPER THANKS FOR ALL WHOM PARTICIPATED IN BOTH POLLS.  THE POLLS WERE SO FUN AND IM GLAD IT GAVE US SOME LAUGHS. LIKE OR HATE THE ENDING OF MOA, I CANNOT FAULT THE ACTORS/ ACTRESSES. THEY ALL WERE PHENOMENAL. I HOPE THEY'LL SOMEDAY WORK TOGETHER AGAIN WITH A DIFFERENT WRITER. 

 

Poll question 2 : Who is the final key to solve the "Alhambra" game error? Is it SJ, JW or HJ?Choose one character and sorry no changes allowed. Make your wise choice. 

 

Consequences:  Winners will be grinners and are allowed to change your profile of your choice.

Losers turns their profile pics into zombies for 1 week. zombi-smiley.gif?1292867706&key=0e1f2ab2zombi-smiley.gif?1292867706&key=0e1f2ab2zombi-smiley.gif?1292867706&key=0e1f2ab2zombi-smiley.gif?1292867706&key=0e1f2ab2zombi-smiley.gif?1292867706&key=0e1f2ab2

rating for final episode according to Nielsen Korea:

Nationwide : 9.933%

After re-watching the finale, I noticed that the game didn't start re-setting until Hee-joo arrived at the church. Coincidence? I think not. Hee-joo may in some way be linked to Emma.

@Kasmic thanks!

That was fun even though I have not even finish watching the drama.

 

Read about the finale.. I'm a little disappointed that it is another bad and rushed ending that sorta wasted everyone's effort since episode 1.

That's what I really hate in drama. Solid opening and disappointing ending!

Good point. I was thinking this as well, but then didn't put it in my illogical rant post. How could JW be a bug, but SJ isn't a bug without a reset? And, Marco disappeared, again without a reset. So, the original bugs in the game, if you will, meaning Marco and SJ did not need to be killed and did not need the game to be reset?

 

I'm sorry. This is now my fault for continuing to read the thread when I know I should just walk away.

As for me, nope, I've now watched dramas by Writer Song Jae Jung twice now, this drama and W. Each time, I fell in love with the set up and the characters, only to be badly let down by the finale and for pretty much the same reason of logic fails. I think that's it for me in terms of watching anything else by her. Even if she somehow put together my dream cast to do another of her projects, I won't be watching.  Sorry, I'm still a little grumpy about this ending.

 

I'm going to go back to the Guess the Abs thread for some good, clean, logical, sexist ogling. :D

Isn’t it more realistic if the ending should be SJ meet JW since he called him in Granada to sell in game and his able that JW was the one to finish the final quest. Then since everything is clear with the game JW returned to be the CEO and that he had proven everyone that he didn’t kill anyone. Then SJ and JW work together to develop the game to another level. I don’t mind HJ and JW not to hug or kiss in the end but at least they should meet as what JW has promised . And it’s up for the audience to think whether they’ll end up together .
