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

Recommended Posts

Just finished Netflix stream of ep 7, and I dunno what to say. For me it started as pretty slow for me wc is ironic given the time lapse. But just like the otp relationship it slowly provides a smooth transition of the story, providing some explanation on issues (or suspiscions for me :lol:) my eyes still on Prof. Cha and Dir. Park.

 

The actors performance are on point basing on their characters - loving Emma's costume and mystique aura, the bad boy CEO appeal of JW, and Prof. Cha dunno how will I feel if he turns out good on this one after all the possible villain ideas that crossed my mind :sweatingbullets:

 

@SeGafanlady @katakwasabi Im with you regarding zombie Dr. Cha im really confused on what will be the pivotal explanation on why he's appearing on all levels even after number of death and attacker.

 

@stroppyse maybe bcoz both JW and his sec were busy playing the game that divorce was put on hold :D

 

Btw, how cool were the gadgets and display on JW and R&D lead's ofc.:glasses:

Why is Zombie Cha still in the game. Its sad seeing him getting killed everytime. Now even Sec. Seo can see and kill him. I find it disturbing that JW is starting to turn cold and have no remorse or feel conflicted in killing zombie Cha. I know he wants to survive. But its disheartening to see zombie cha killed multiple times. JW is turning to be a killer machine in the game.

 

Some updates to the story as of ep 7

1. The game is now evolved.

2. Emma might not be in the game anymore. JW told to delete all the original game NPC's including Emma. I wonder how they got their hands on the original codes since HJ packed all of SJ's belongings before moving to korea. 

3. Zombie cha is still popping up

4. Sec Seo can see and kill zombie cha too

5. Now players can heal by eating subway:sweatingbullets:

6. Players can also collect coins by buying a subway meal:sweatingbullets:

7. JW leveled up using a back door to the game with the help of his programmer.

8. JW is an alcoholic. He drank 1 big bottle of rum(?) at the office. He also needs pills.

9. HJ and her family moved to korea and she opened a guitar shop

10. HJ now knows that there was a hidden reason why JW insisted to buy the hostel

11. HJ was exchanging mail with SJ but it was actually sec seo and HJ knows that too

12. SJ is still lost somewhere

13. JW is still married.

14. JW's cane is noisy :sweatingbullets:

Was it not JW who emails HJ using SJ account so as not yo worry her? Because back in Granada he opened SJ's computer

 

Technically yes. But it was Sec Seo who replied under JW's orders.

Well, JW's company had the game logistics, visuals, play modes, etc. plus the lenses that allowed him to see the AR from when he was playing the game in Grenada. From that, the tech guys in his company could have recreated the game. More importantly, when HJ sold the hostel to JW, JW's company came to own the copyright on the game. It would have been faster to develop the game with SJ's source code, but not strictly necessary since JW's game guys also seem pretty savvy developers. The weaponry that JW is using came from his company's development of the game, as we saw when JW goes to his company and talks to the weapons team, rather than from SJ's code. I'm guessing that the game has developed further since SJ's version.

 

Rather, it's the mystical elements of Zombie Cha being able to appear at will in JW's reality that is puzzling. Also, the implication seems to be that JW doesn't need the lenses at all to play the game anymore regardless of which version. That I do find a bit puzzling, but can't think about it too long since I think we're just supposed to accept that all instances of the game are permutable.

 

Btw, nice summation of key points @katakwasabi. Thank you. I just finished watching the episode as well.

 

One more thing, I think HJ's role is going to grow from here on out, and I do rather love that HJ had pretty much figured things out on her own rather than waiting to be told by someone what was going on. She's smart as well as pretty. I wonder if she's going to get a chance to get in the game and fight as well, rather than just being the face of the NPC who plays guitar. I think she could fight pretty well, and it would be kind of cool to see her and JW fight as a team at some point. Just some wishful thinking. :)

I think that it's happened so often now that JW has had to inure himself against emotions about killing the zombie of his friend. Also, given that HS has been buried in real life, JW believes that HS is just an NPC, even if he doesn't know how HS has become an NPC. So, I can see that it would be easier to detach. Though, I also wondered whether there was some commentary here about the emotional stunting to killing that happens with graphically violent RPG's in general?

 

Anyway, I think that the reason that JW is convinced that SJ is alive, if maybe trapped in the game, is that SJ's body has not been found. I hope we find out more about what happened to SJ next episode.

 

I still don't understand why JW hasn't finished getting divorced from his wife. Is it just to hamper JW's romance with HJ plotwise, or will his wife play a role further along in the drama?

I think otp wise they are finally in a better position. I feel relieved that Hee-ju knows things that were kept as a secret to her. But still, it felt like they jumped some steps. Because till the moment of revelation (that she knew all along about the emails), Hee-ju seemed the same naive girl as she was in Granada. She kept quiet even after she understood it was somebody else sending mails instead of her brother?? Doesn't that mean her brother is missing and he could be in danger?? Even in her last mail she didn't raise any concerns regarding se ju or tried to make sure that it really was him?? She never inquired why it was always emails instead of a phone call?? Even when she contacted Seo sec, she didn't try to set up a meeting with him and the message she typed and deleted was her asking about JW's leg. Actually, I can perfectly understand her curiosity about Jin woo, but her being passive about her brother that too for about 1 year is little confounding for me.

Jin woo had a lot in his life to deal. Living a life like this is really complicated and frustrated but still, he shouldn't have kept the truth away from Seju's family. It is possible they may not believe or understand anything about the game and there may not be anything his family could do to find him. Even then it was their right to grieve for him, it was their right to know the truth.

Now that everything is in its place I hope the story can flow smoothly.

I think PSH as Emma will play the game because if I’m not mistaken she said in an interview that she played games so that she can understand on how to act as a character in the game. And HB is also mentioned that SH didn’t just go there and shoot but she study the game. So I’m quite sure she’ll play . She also said that Emma and HJ are opposite. Maybe she’ll play to find the brother . So she’ll team up with HB. I think it’s right not to start their romance coz both have problems to settle although I also can’t wait but then it’ll look unrealistic at this moment . But I know it will be a good ending according to the interview. 

I kind lost or feel dizzy with the games as I don’t play but who cares as long as I understand the story of the drama and I’m enjoying it. All the casts are really doing a good job. Sorry for the long post .

For me,it is clear like crystalB) .Writer want to make a big obstacle to our love birds.And i really little disappointed about the love story to our leads.Its take too slow and the sence they meet is too little.Ar games and fighting sence is too many.In my opinion this drama is combination of 50 % of game,20% of other things (other characters) and 30% of romance.But i love to watch this:tears: show becos of our leads:tears:

calm your ahjumma fan’s heart down.... there are still many episodes left.. lol hehehe..

 

and of course me want also the lovey dovey sweet look and soft gazes lovingly happens between our OTP... like hello... Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye is the best visual and talent you can ever get in an OTP.. I can name very few and one of other than this is Kim Joo won and Gil Ra Im.. if you get what I meant hehehe.... Hyun Bin is so so amazing he can have a deep chemistry with a tree. and we will of course whip him with the tree.. that’s how remarkable he is..

 

I can tell how Yoo Jin Woo really has placed Jung Hee Joo in a special place in his heart.. tye man is totally still monitoring and keep himself update on Hee Joo’s.. he knows everything.. he even sent her emails pretending to be See Joo.. to calm Hee Joo’s mind.. OMG is he even real?

 

now that he has meeting her again and she stormed off because not knowing anything.. I hope their relationship can elope into the next step.. she really really worry and misses him though.. 

 

and OMO... I can’t believe my eyes.. after a year passed.. that estranged wife actress is still playing her game on settlement divorce.. so so hopeless... Yoo Jin Woo has to end it soon.

 

looking forward to watch episode 7 with english sub even I understand already most.. and have you seen how gorgeous Hee Joo with those different outfits? my fave is the black sexy lace one... I lolled watching Yoo Jin Woo’s in awe reaction hahahaha....

 

hot babe :wub:

JW has other pressing problems. A relationship is way at the back of his mind now. He needs to find SJ. He needs to figure out how to make zombie cha dissapear. 

 

Maybe HJ will play. That would make her more active as a character. Maybe the theories that Emma is a healer is not right since now we have subway to heal players haha

 

I thought JW saw zombie cha due to his guilty conscience. But now that Sec Seo can see him too, i guess my assumption is wrong. Anyways, can Sec Seo play the game without lenses too? Hmmm. 

 

The programmer deleted all original NPC's in the game. Did he try deleting zombie cha from the game?

Yes, I think JW's response or development of 'feelings' to Hee-Ju is quite natural at this point. I am actually glad that the writer didn't rush their progress and didn't push him into the ship. I hope this show wouldn't come down to be a mere rom-com. I am not saying being a rom-com is bad but this show has the potential to go beyond that.

i just want to ay 5 min into the drama, i m absolutely thrilled with the business part of it..

i can see how games would aspire to be there.. and that we will soon be there - all their coporate partnerships etc..

 

 

i honestly don't care about the people.. too fascinated with how well they have etched out the AI part and the business proposition.. too realistic

 

ok have a theory (haven't watched ep 7 completly thoguh)

 

Dr. Cha died right.. without logging off.. you know how all games e.g candycrush too.. if you exhaust your chances aka die "x" number of times, you have to wait for 8 hours or so to try that level again until you win.

 

So,  in this case Dr. Cha never logged off, he is still in the game. Therefore, even though hurt its like real games, he will keep playing his last level until he clears.. BUT HB doesn't let him win.. so that is why the game with zombie cha is still repeating itself.. because his id is stuck at that level and not logged off

 

so rather than ha being the one coming into zinu's world.. zinu is the prime obstacle or character in cha's id world..

 

 

other characters zinu kills don't come back.. because they are game characters. this would happen only with real characters who get stuck at a level and need to keep repeating the same obstacle until they win and move on

he need to let cha win the game and move on to next level, next target

but HB doesn't let him win :P

 

Nobody is going to die because of a game.. so many people are playing it..

 

cha just died.. because he had to or wanted to or that wife really bored him and he wanted an exit.. cha's death is that random factor which is truly random but entire maths and sample testing goes for a toss since we start making it to be more than a random factor

My thoughts exactly. His passion is commendable. I want his character to be explored more or be given a deeper backstory. He's the 2nd lead buat he has no lines, maintains the same outfit, makeup and expression. 

 

I'm not sure the significance of Zombie cha in the game other than to help JW level up everytime he gets killed.

Hahaha. Chanyeol is nearly non existant in the drama. Thankfully they seem to be starting to find him for real. Still dont know why HJ did not report SJ was missing when she had doubts that the one replying her email was not SJ himself :ph34r:.

 Well, Chanyeol just needs more screentime, but it depends on how long it takes them to find him. I wonder why City Hunter, great playerID choice btw lol, asks Jinu to train him in the preview.

because she knew the one replying is her crush..

you dont hurt your crush.. haven't you been in love? :P  have you seen anyone prioritize family over love.. people fight parents to go against them :P and JW was already struggling with all the rumours and the 2nd wife did a good job of telling the world that JW is very very ill :P
