here's something to lighten up your mood :joy: idol wannabe Minjoo & a displeased Jinwoo. 

JW: The owner of the hostel must be your mom

MJ: She's obviously my sister

JW: I see. Don't tell her, ok? :lol::lol::lol:

I really love your blog expecially the ones about MOTA because you are one of the people who don't question the logic of the game because i really get how the game works. i dont understand how Jinwoo is a bug but you have already kindly explain it in your blog, and i find it plausible. the only incosistency i get is when Sec Seo is getting murdered, Jinwoo is still on the train that takes him away from Granada, he got a message that he's away from the game server (which is in Granada), also the message thar Prof Cha gets when he ran away from Seoul after being Jinwoo's ally, he's away from the game server in Seoul. No NPC can get to them if they are out of the town. But JW also said that he still can see Cha Junior even in the US. from the story line, i didnt think US has been included in the game server, because the game is developed only for Granada and Seoul. So why can JW still see junior Cha? maybe the server region only works for the game NPC (meaning the soldiers and the terrorists)? That i think, is one inconsistency that i still hasnt get, maybe you have an explanation for that? sorry if you have written this somewhere in your blog, i might miss it. :D

 

BTW W is so good, except for the ending. hahaha atleast in my opinion. 

 

Yes, I already explained that, too, but I guess I wasn’t explicit enough.:lol:

 

JW is a BUG. The moment he killed HyunSuk, he created an ERROR in the software and his user Zinu became a BUG. Think of Zinu as a virus, infecting/corrupting his allies with the same virus.   

 

And yes, NPC HyunSuk haunted Jinwoo daily but the show didn’t show viewers NPC HS’s daily appearance because that would be tedious. More tiresome than the flashbacks. Ha!   

 

Jinwoo said it himself in Episode 7 at 42:15. I’d take a screenshot of it if I had time. You remembered that scene well.

 

He was talking to Park who lecturing him about the way he drank and popped pills. JW answered, “I’m trying hard to restore balance to my life. Imagine being in a battlefield every day. I see blood, get stabbed, kill others, and worry about dying.  Try doing that for 365 days. You’d be popping pills, too.” Park protested, “You said the vision had stopped.” And he replied, “No I still see him every day. I couldn’t tell Professor Cha that I see his son covered in blood every day.”


Every single day. Everywhere he goes.  :crazy::ph34r:

 

Again, the director didn’t show us their meetings because it was a given that JW shot NPC HS every single day, too. What's the fun of showing us THAT? The director only reminded us once in a while, for instance in Episode 12, when NPC HS showed up in HeeJoo’s workshop. JW shot him, of course.

 

Now, JW wanted Prof Cha as far away from Seoul as possible because he (Jinwoo) was staying in Seoul to fight the NPCs. Mind you, he wanted the distance NOT FOR HIMSELF but for Prof Cha’s sake.

 

There were two reasons.

 

One, when Prof Cha was in the Seoul, he was within the range of the servers and the NPCs would attack HIM. Jinwoo obviously couldn’t protect Prof Cha and level up at the same time. 

 

Look: That’s why Sec Seo got killed in Granada when he was ambushed by a swarm of NPCs. Jinwoo went “out of bounds” so his terrorist NPCs disappeared. But Sec Seo remained in Granada so of course, the game didn’t end for him. Sec Seo couldn’t log out even when he wanted to log out nor could he quit the game by removing his AR lenses because there was no stopping the onslaught of NPCs unless the servers were turned off.

 

JW learned this valuable lesson from Sec Seo’s death. Hence, he ordered Prof Cha to get out of Seoul and out of range of the servers so the NPCs wouldn’t attack him. 

 

Two, whenever Prof Cha was with him, Prof Cha would be in danger from NPC Hyunsuk, too.

 

NPC Hyunsuk was different from all the other NPCs. For one, the servers didn’t matter with him. Whether they’re on or off, he still existed. For another (and people MUST understand this by now), NPC Hyunsuk was only AFTER Jinwoo. He showed up for Jinwoo, not for anybody else. He was Jinwoo’s albatross. His ball and chain. His shadow. His soul, if you want. And he appeared daily to Jinwoo. 

 

NPC Hyunsuk wasn't really going after Sec Seo or for Prof Cha. He didn't haunt them. If you noticed at the train stations in Barcelona and Granada, NPC Hyunsuk surfaced where Jinwoo was located, not at Sec Seo’s side.

 

Jinwoo was NPC Hyunsuk's primary target, but if he had allies with him, NPC  Hyunsuk will go after them as well. 

 

To sum it up then: Jinwoo wanted Prof Cha out of Seoul to put distance between them. He couldn’t predict when NPC HyunSuk would show up at his side. While turning off the servers could stop most NPCs, the servers could NOT stop NPC HyunSuk from reappearing. If Prof Cha was with Jinwoo, he was a sitting duck.  
 

So there you go. Again, I don't see any inconsistencies in the game.  :)

 

But as I said in one of the comments on my blog, do not be stuck with these small details. Go for the BIG PICTURE that the writer and director want us to see. There’s a postscript shown in the final credits. “Trust is the magic that changes the world, not the technology.” When you focus too much on the “technology” or the MECHANICS of the show and the logic of the GAME, you lose the real meaning of the kdrama. Go beyond this. :D

I have an embarrassing remark to make about a scene near the beginning of the drama.
There is a weapons store and a shooting gallery in an antique store.
What an absurd idea for the game designer to have put this here.
The poor merchant will be robbed several times a night all year round?!!

Wow, what a nice ep. 17:w00t:      

It started with another flashback of bathroom scene in the ep 16.

Alhambra16-00320.jpg

Cr: Dramabeans - MOA

 

(That scene was so funny, all other players in good manners, patiently in the line waiting to get their first sword. :lol:)

 

I'm imagining the players discussing on how to get the swords (and they spill the secret among new players behind them). 

I bet the key to get the sword is not by pulling the towel handle on the wall (just like JW did) - forget it, we don't use towel at public washroom. So more likely they have to flush the toilet at least twice, then the sword coming from the attic.

 

                                                              (Just Kidding....it's all in my dream!!)

 

Wew...first weekend without JinWoo, hope he's doing okay.

It seems that the drama is over for good, and the comings and goings are decreasing on this forum.

So, before it's too late, I have something to say.

 

This is the first time I have been involved in following a drama as the episodes are published in this way.
It was really a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
I felt the warmth and friendship of all the drama enthusiasts, and there were many fun moments.
So, thank you all, I am delighted to have met you here.


Unfortunately, I don't have any more dramas in sight to start this again soon, and all my time is spent writing.
I hope, however, that the opportunity will present itself before the next Song Jae-Jung drama.
And at worst, I hope to see you all again on this occasion, in one or two years' time.

 

:tears:......:cry:......:dissapointed_relieved:......:bawling:

 

 

EDIT: I know that there are people who want to see "W" soon. If they want to share their feelings on the subject of the forum dedicated to "W", I will gladly go with them on this forum.

where are our recappers @Kasmic @katakwasabi @ktcjdrama , the show's latest episode started already :tounge_xd: 

You tease! For a second there I really thought I missed some kind of announcement and there is a new episode! 

 

I haven't been hanging around soompi these few days. Had to sit for an exam yesterday and was busy preparing for it, then had to entertain some out-of-town guests. Only saw your tag just now...

 

I actually haven't watched ep.16 with subs due to time constraints. Will do that soon.

@ned_lee Yes we can change our profile pic to whatever we want now. I cant believe its only been a week since MOA ended. Withdrawal symptoms is so hard .... I miss the casts so much. 

@rori0711 if only there were more eps Im sure we would gladly recap some more. Loved how you accidentally stirred some members here thinking there were some special eps :joy:

DxM5q35UUAIuix2.jpg&key=2a06296d7ac94c89

Wow this scene here was when JW first fought the Nasrid Knight to level up right? so there is no actual knight statue there. The CGI editing team replaced it. COOL!  :w00t: 

 

@scarletashin wow glad you found the BGM. Naw we have such generous fans willing to share. Im still looking for the Little Prince female version too. I wonder if it will be in the original artists solo album. I even tried the instrumental version but still no luck... Please tag me again if you see it. Thank you again :D

 

@yuhotarubi I asked my sister if she finished watching MOA... 

Her: Loudly groans

Me: bursts out in laughter knowing that her answer is a yes

Her: bloody hell what was that. He went thru so much to only get lost himself. 

Me: still laughing, yes its now Finding JinWoo! but if you believe then his there. Apparently the drama is all about believing. 

Her: I subscribed to netflix to see that.... argh! i feel cheated. 

Im still laughing and we def need a drink tonight. 

 

@wenchanteur Goodluck with your writing. As always I loved reading your post. I have yet to watch W, the faceless Prof Cha scared me so I couldnt continue it. Maybe I should brave myself and try again lol! 

 

I guess its a "see you again" in another thread... and Im most certain we would. 

Some memories are worth saving

You know what? I'm writing one of the most heartbreaking scenes in the drama actualy.
I am led to feel all the emotions that flow from it, to better live it and better transcribe it.
Which means I'm really crying right now....
