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. 

Maybe when they fix the gamebug or whatever it is that makes him reappear, he will have more lines :lol:

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

 

JW actually uses Cha to level up. I dont think he needs to be killed by Cha for the game to proceed. I suppose JW was already killed in the game when he fell from the 6th floor but Cha still appeared after that.

 

Why kill cha and make it a random factor? He would be more useful alive as JW's frenemy rather than used as a tool to help JW level up :ph34r: P/s: Even evil eunuch in Goblin had more backstory than Cha here, he was shown to be so evil and haunted others, which made Grim Reaper and Goblin's pursuit to kill him understandable.

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

 

Omg. What?! You don't hurt your crush? Crush over family? Thats twisted and kinda disturbing to be honest haha :ph34r::sweatingbullets:. I have a friend who regrets going against his parents wishes. He told that parents blessing is very important.

 

I know there are people out there like that who goes way beyond for some random person and ignores their own family. Which is sad and depressing. But i dont see it as the case for HJ here. She's just not proactive enough. Hahaha

Yes, have that thought too - what happen if JW let Zombie Cha win just for once? he has high level anyway. Will Zombie then Cha's level up and haunt the other players? -- Or kept coming attacking JW?

Either way, JW's killing Zombie giving him advantage in points and level. Thanks for The Gun.

 

I think the death of CHS is a brilliant idea that made this drama mysteriously entertaining.

Lee Min Ho cameo please for the CityHunter :)

Second thought, could SJ body is trapped within Zombie Cha's character? The one who play Zombie Cha is actually SJ? :unsure:

Now it makes sense that I have watched it with subs... HJ already had suspicion that JW is the one writing the emails, but did not bother anyone, that SJ is missing because she does not want halmeoni to worry. This episode is I think pivotal in the main plot, JW keeps mentioning that being crazy has a logic, and keeps on saying that the game itself is crazy, I think he has this hunch that some one is playing game against him? To whatever plot it is we do not know hehe.  Also it makes sense as well what HJ feeling is, ‘it seems we are the only one that is happy’ then pan the picture of JW with so many scandals lol. There is a guilt feeling or feeling sorry... That they are OK but the man that gave them that fortune was in misery.

If they want  the rating to zoom up the writer need to start the romance and don’t concentrate on the game? Unless Emma and Sejo play. Hahaha

He wasn't..

had he, he would have known that death is virtual then :P and actually would not have bothered with cha's ghost..

he feels pain.. and he thinks Cha died in real life because he died in game.. so he thinks he will also die for real :) and therefore, never let's cha win

i am saying cha's death is random factor. He didn't die because he was killed in game.

E.g. candycrush.. you have "X" lives, when that gets over, you have to wait for 8 hours before you can play the level again. The only way to play earlier is if you pay up and renew access.

Similarly, obviously cha can't payup or do anything new... he hasn't logged off.. so when he dies , he comes back again with each new attempt at the same level.

 

Jinu is Cha's level not that Cha is ZInu's level or obstacle..cha needs to complete the level with Zinu as obstacle and move on.. but he can't so he is stuck at dueling zinu.

You don't get romance .. more so drama romance..

 

nothing twisted.. have you ever seen couples who meet family objection? or teenagers?

In DRAMA

[Memories of Alhambra] Ep 7 spoilers, Hyun Bin x Park Shin Hye

Posted on Saturday, December 22, 2018

 
Article: Naver 'Memories of Alhambra' Park Shin Hye and Hyun Bin reunites in Seoul.. Confirms that Chanyeol is missing 


1. [+1446,-48]
Today's ending is amazing. ㅠㅠㅠ Hyun Bin is so handsome.. 

2. [+1294,-39]
I'm surprised at Hyun Bin's handsome looks every second... When he limped while using his walking stick, he's handsome. He looks handsome using a gun. Sharing an umbrella makes him look handsome too. He's just handsome. 


3. [+792,-48]
Hyun Bin is getting more and more handsome. 


4. [+627,-63]
My heart broke when Park Shin Hye lashes out at him while crying. ㅠㅠ Her acting is good and she's really pretty. 


5. [+432,-25]
A drama that makes me look forward to the next episode. 


6. [+249,-14]
Hyun Bin is so handsome. The suit effect. He's so sexy, during his most popular days, he kills with his looks. 


7. [+232,-10]
To start the romance, let Jin Woo get a divorce. It's too draggy. 


8. [+190,-4]
Prof Cha's expressions.. it's suspicious.. And is Mr Park a friend or foe..? Are they working together to take the company whole? 


9. [+180,-8]
I fell for Emma when they changed her clothes. It's so pretty. 


10. [+174,-8]
It's so interesting. Look at Hyun Bin's eyes. Mr Cha is so pitiful. He kept dying, I feel bad for him.

 
alhambra.png

Article: Naver 'Memories of Alhambra' Hyun Bin, chased by Cha Hyung Suk even after 1 year

1. [+993,-42]
It's not like the two are having a 'some' when they were in Spain, they were separated ambiguously. It's awkward if they meet in Seoul and show love to each other.. The most important thing to Hyun Bin isn't Park Shin Hye. His dead friend is still continuing to appear in front of his eyes, what's love...? The current speed is fine, and story makes sense.


2. [+431,-4]
Hul, the secretary can see Mr Cha now!


3. [+465,-98]
So, why is he in the game even when he's not wearing the lenses? This part doesn't make sense the most. 
-[+186,-3]
They are going to explain that soon. Secretary Seo has started to see Zombie Cha too. What kind of mystery gets revealed in the next week? Is this some kind of one-shot drama? 


4. [+259,-8]
Hyun Bin was the coolest when he pulled out a gun in the church. Everyone's praying and the two are fighting quietly! They showed Hyun Bin leveling up too, that scene was so pretty too.. 


5. [+250,-14]
Wow, there is so much development in today's episode but people are leaving negative comments because they don't see Hee Joo and Jin Woo together. Why are there so many people addicted to romance? ㅋㅋ And if they reveal the secret about why they don't need to go into the game to see Cha Hyung Suk now, how will the drama continue till the end? These people want the secret to be revealed so quickly. ㅋㅋ 


6. [+414,-185]
They are showing those gaming scenes all day, where did the story go? When are Jin Woo and Hee Joo going to meet? 


7. [+184,-9]
It's interesting, why is everyone acting like that? 


8. [+175,-9]
No, it's so interesting that I was surprised when I read the comments. I like that they developed the story. I think Se Joo is really hiding somewhere.. Like how Hyun Bin wanted to die every second, Se Joo must be hiding somewhere, trembling in fear like a mentally unstable person.. It's fun, I get so absorbed in it.

My comments for ep 7

 

- i chuckled a little bit looking at Subway PPL.. 

- his secretary now can see and help him kill Dr. Cha.He also can hear the Alhambra song before that.

- Something amiss with Prof. Cha

- JW is now an alcoholic

- JW is using a cheat code or a back door to up his level..

- I wonder why JW and his 2nd wife not yet divorced

- I hope there will be more interaction/conversation between JW and HJ.. You could feel an emotional pull when HJ lashing out at JW at the end of episode 7

-Finally, "where is Seju" subject being discussed

- Is HJ going to join the game ? In the preview, while talking to HJ on the phone, JW saying that he will show that SJ is not yet dead..

well.. they haven't had too many players.. and others advanced to higher players right.. marco, brother, .. 

 

Hi, yes, you're right. I am watching ep 7 now, and it is the church scene. Jin Woo's level is up to 84 after hiding somewhere for 3 months. While Se joo read his sister's e-mail, means 'he is alive???'. Okay, I'll continue watching ep 7. It's exciting, reminds me of Secret Forest (Stranger). :D

I think this is right... What happened to Ji Woo will be happened to Se Joo as well.

I think rating wise.. the team (cast, creatives) knows that they are in good/safe place thats why even if audience needs to see romantic devt that I also believe can give more % they dont want to rush on otp leveling up - I mean they do not need to add up to other issue that we all need to analyze :D. So the relationship of JW and HJ is the nearest thing to reality devt wise.

Just watched episode 7. Confused at some aspects still but I thought Jin Woo’s transformation was most noticeable in this one.

 

Jin Woo’s dilemma is several fold. When he was at the lower levels, he is gripped with fear, uncertainties while burdened with having to fight his enemies continuously, include zombie NPC Hyun Seok.  The music, the thunder, all sent him into anxiety and panic attacks.  Poor Hyun Seok, who died before he was logged out, is forever cursed to defeat Jin Woo so he can advance to the next level.  Knowing this, Jin Woo figured the best way to cure his anxiety and fear is to shift the advantage with more advanced weapons.  Even better, somehow possibly avoid direct combat with Hyun Seok by getting his hand on weapons that can kill from a distance like guns.  Thus, he asked his programmer to develop a safe room where he can farm players to level up quickly.  Along the way to level 50, Jin Woo’s psyche and mentality changed.  He became a killing machine ironically in the game as well as in real life.  For Jin Woo, the game once again bleed into reality.  His playing has altered his personality and he is no longer the warm charismatic CEO he once was.  He lost all sensations and feelings in real life. The drugs that once effective as sedatives are now like candies.  He’s no longer buzzed out from the alcohol.   Everything is dulled and muted, including the fear and hurt of killing Hyun Seok.  Jin Woo succeeded in controlling and defeating Hyun Seok in AR but at the cost of his sanity and psyche.  He is a changed man.  There’s coldness, ruthlessness, weariness about him that is polar opposite of the person he once was.  

 

Yes, I agree that Jin Woo’s problem is that he is still unsure if Hyung Seok died from his sword while playing.  It is because of this unsolved mystery that Jin Woo refused to let Hyung Seok defeat him and perhaps, get out of his life.  However, Jin Woo is above Hyun Seok so much level wise that he will continue to see Dr Cha levels after levels.  The only way I see Jin Woo can stop seeing Dr Cha is if he level down below Hyun Seok, which means he must suffer defeat by the dead man.  And Jin Woo doesn’t want to die ever.  LOL the dilemma is real anc catch-22.  

 

I also think Jin Woo wants to continue winning so he can get out of the game.  At this point, he is not sure if Se Joo is in the game.  Once he finds out, he really would want to continue playing to meet him.

I know that the pacing seems slow but I think in order to feel compassionate about HB and PSH and to be able to really understand what they may be going through- this pace is required. I don't think we'd be able to enjoy the romance of our OTPs without this one year leap- I mean HB is in a life threatening situation, he is going mental, it is NOT NORMAL to be in a situation he is in so he can't even share his dilemma openly- in these catastrophic circumstances if he fell head over heels for PSH that would have been ridiculous. Who cares about romance when you are dying/going insane.

 

Of course there was an attraction between him and PSH when they were in Granada, he got to see her trusting, innocent and giving nature and I think that is how it should be. Now back in Seoul since he has somewhat accepted this new reality, become accustomed to it, I think it's more appropriate for him to develop stronger romantic type feelings for PSH.

 

So yes while as a admirer of HB I would like for him romance PSH soon and be all lovey-dovey, but I also feel that the current pace of their potential love story fits the overall plot. So as long as the writer eventually capitalises on the chemistry between PSH and HB I think I will be willing to wait.

Hi I'm new to Soompi! I just can't help not discussing this wonderful drama :wub:

 

 

 

'm mulling over SJ's disappearance, though. We have this joke among K-pop fans, that whenever an idol is casted in a drama, they always end up dead. EXO ChanYeol died in Missing9, EXO Beakhyun in Scarlet Heart, and BTS V in Hwarang. Those are just some examples.

 

Hopefully, this drama would end that since writernim has a way of messing with our minds as seen on W hahahah Although, (unpopular opinion) W was quite a downhill ride for me during the last few episodes, I'm hopeful that won't happen with this drama :wub:
