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

Recommended Posts

REALLY late post.

 

But

OH.

MY.

GOD!!!!

 :scream:

 

I'm so glad the trailers were kinda vague and all over the place cause I went it with a completely open mind and I am BLOWN AWAY!!

 

So many questions but I'd rather not know the answers...yet. (the experience is better this way...for me at least)

 

Every episode ends with a huge question mark. And the beginning of every episode explores a new portion of the story we never expect. This show is just AMAZING so far - the plot, the actors, the AR element (LOVE it) and the (extremely well-paced) romance! :wub: 

 

Can't wait for the change in setting now that they're back in Korea and where and how their (WJ and HJ) lives will intertwine again. I have a strong feeling she holds an extremely vital key for the game and how it will progress moving forward :w00t:

@siddy09 I like your theory on SJ. You right that time the game was fine and JW logged out of the game. He started playing again after he didn't find SJ and noticed there's another users around playing like him. He found that the user is no other than his ex-friend and rival enemy CHS. Then if the game start acting weird if the real human who played it got killed then could they call this as the bug that needs to fix. Okay. Let's say we accepted this idea. But how do you think about the game really killed them in real life while medical results showed that they're mysteriously died and the cause is unidentified yet. CHS was known to be an alcoholic recently,  stated by his dad to DIL SJ. Before he met JW to have a duel that night, he has drunk a bottle of wine or beer, the point is he drinks alcohol. So to make all this logical to me. I'm going to think that he died because of that. Sighh.. but the drama confirms me wrong and I feel so confused on this. 

 

I think HB just want to emphasize that JW is a better gamer than he himself. So I doubt that the game will have 90 levels. Lol. But if they do, that will be exhausting to play it all the time just to reach final level. 

 

No problem, but since you're here. Why don't you try watching this too? Hahaha

IDK..but I can't say about how the game killed them in real life. Maybe that's where real world and AR world is merging..I have kind of accepted the theory that JW himself gave..that he killed CHS with his sword and the murder will remain mysterious to the real world because they can not see the game world. Lol..will anyone believe JW if the reason he gives for CHS death is a game duel which ended up in death. I suppose no, hence its a mysterious death. Though I am not sure why Prof.Cha talked about conducting a autopsy when they never intended to do so..I guess writer also wants us to believe JW's reasoning and put all other facts under the rug..-_-

That bouquet of red roses was screaming ''I like you''.

The card was a bit cold.

 

 

 

The phone call  was the coldest. Lol..I suppose it was the bathroom floor effect or maybe zombie effect.

*rule* don't talk to your future wife when you are sitting on the bathroom floor or when a zombie is knocking your door..:D

I liked and tend to agree with dramabeans summarising JW-HJ relationship progress from beginning to the end of episode 6...

sharing with you all...

http://www.dramabeans

 

Also, look at things from Hee Joo’s Perspective too...

1: JW has been the first saviour in HJ’s life at a young age of 27. For many years she has just singlehandedly taken care of 2siblings and grandmother. By no means sign of a weak person. SJ realises that fact which inspires him into creating Emma after her. Grandmother acknowledges her hardship through the years as she hugged HJ...Min Joo lays it straight to JW that HJ is too good for him. Her family knows!

Still waters run deep couldn’t be more true for HJ. There is a underlying strength that cannot be seen in her outer veneer.

( Though at some subconscious level I think JW realises that...)

 

2: JW is also the first one who appreciated HJ as a classic guitarist since her becoming guardian of her family and encouraged her more than once to take it up again. 

 

3: We all agree JW was charming in his dealings with HJ since his about turn realising he needed her for his gain. If we find him charming despite knowing he was not being upfront with HJ...we can surely understand her liking him..:D

 

3: JW falls in her hostel...in that single moment his personality changes from the assured, confident charming suave self to one with irreversible handicap, hallucinations & seizures having undergone surgery.... diaganosed with ‘stress related paranoid ideation’ seeing/fearing a dead person with a sword like a ghost of his ex friend. Now on sedatives to keep him calm.

All these events are quite a lot to absorb in a single day by any standards. We know why...but HJ does not! 

HJ also feels burdened by the fact that accident happened in her hostel leading to JW in this state...Her emotions were stretched to max in series of events within a short period time. Therefore, it is not surprising if she gives in under all the stress & sheds tears when HJ held back in JW’s embrace pleading to stay there a while; final straw being when she hears him utter the words

“ I’ve gone crazy”

 

Do we call that weak? Unreasonable? Out of place?

or

Do we see another good side of HJ...?

The empathy, compassion, pity , concern for someone she considers as her saviour, for one who brought a ray of hope for a future for her whole family and their happiness ....

now reduced to obvious physical and mental challenges/ handicaps

 

There is much more ...but one thing is for sure...

HJ has a silent strength, admirable loyalties, ethical values, empathetic, loving and loved by her family and people she comes across in her daily life...

That’s something that we cannot say for

JW, females surrounding him and his life.

 

JW & HJ both provide each other what each is lacking....we can see that through the multitude of events involving them

I think ...At subconscious levels they do register & appreciate what each brings in each other’s lives..

i look forward to the development of their story together...which though headed for love but not there as yet !

 

Sorry for the long monologue....

.... there is still a lot left to say..:D

 

 

 

I’m with you. Thank you.

 

Hope not.  Until now I still wonder why they bothered to cast Yoona in Confidential Assignment.

I kinda miss JWs  ''princess and the wolf'' smile. 

But, ok.

The way JW stays looking at HJ is even more sexy.

I agreed. And this professor seems suspicious. Since the actor SUS keeps playing evil roles so here I can't think him other than he's plotting to  revenge later. Like he might realize something went off and JW is no longer to be his favorite. He just makes me anxious.

I like their scenes tho even it's sad for JW. Idk I just love seeing HB acting melo like this. It reminds me how great his acting in his old movie 'A Millionaire's First Love'. The way JW responds coldy to HJ's phone call. "I'm not okay. Will you come here again if I say so? No, you don't have to come" Clearly describes his true feeling which he hides from her. It breaks my heart when he was alone in that house. The sad look in his eyes.. gahhh... I want ep 7 now!!

Yes, so true.

JW was trying to look calm, and like everything is fine.

And the only thing he wanted was for HJ to stay.

She wanted to stay with him even more.

But that friend of hers simply made her leave.

Can I just thank everyone here for uploading amazing gifs and pics:) I mean seriously the only way I am able to wait for 6 days till the next episode is aired is because of you guys. Everytime I crave for another PSH and Hyun Bin moment, all I have to do is login to soompi and there is always a new gif/comment on them. I just love how everyone here is just as crazy as me to want to see more of their romance. So a BIG THANK YOU to everyone!!!

Nobody gonna talk about the fact that WJ kept looking at the chair HJ was sitting on after she left?? :heartbreak:

Even when he was hiding under his covers (terrified) thinking HS is back to kill him!

 

I honestly think he's not putting much thought into 'feelings' for HJ at this point because he's just not in the correct state of mind right now. At first I was kinda confused that he seemed genuinely surprised whenever HJ's sister tells him her sister has feelings for him or that he didn't want anybody else by his side when he was passed out. Maybe due to his past two failed marriages, he's just void of feelings (romantic ones)...for now.

Yes he tries so hard to hold himself together and try to be brave it's so pitiful to see. I find it poignant to see him gazing at an empty chair longingly. At this point, I think he was not only thinking about HJ consciously as a woman but as his savior in the nightmare.

Waiting to see how the move to Korea will affect HJ. Living in Granada since childhood , in a total different culture, society, different values , where women and men are seeing quiet equal, she feels loved,  appreaciated, respected, and accepted by all, the way she is, an  open mind person, kind free spirit , openly show her emotions without restrain, to the point that she run after her crash(?), perhaps to confess(?), and nobody cares, critized, or judge . How HJ will be in Korea? What changes will we see?  Curious and anxious!

Shin Hye’s portray of HJ is really amazing. All the criticism that is going around about her acting in this drama, just tells how good of a job she is doing in portraying HJ, totally immerse, and dragging the viewers with her. Amazing! It is not easy to realize and/or understand that. This writer is indeed fabulous, and the Director and production team together with the casts are doing a great job! 

It is a phenomenon happening in dramaland, and the world love it! . :D
