It is clear that the flashbacks about SJ and Marco are not the real events. JW thought that Marco died during the game and SJ experienced the same: he is followed by NPC Marco. However, there are some loopholes in this. How could SJ disappear entirely and JW was not able to meet/see him like we saw the story JW imagined?

We heard that Marco was a drug addict and had debts. What if the debts can be linked to professor Cha? Let just say that the thugs contacted professor Cha as Marco had told them about the game in order to show them that his game could repay his debts. What if the thugs contacted professor Cha? But once Marco was released, he tried to contact CHS and to sell the game.

I find it weird that JW and SJ are chased by zombies who can kill them. In my opinion, there is a third person who wants to get rid of JW and SJ.

Professor Cha is really scary and dangerous ... nonetheless I hope, there is someone else behind it too. KSB heard in the last episode that JW would go back to Granada. So he is still on my suspect list beside Cha. When they arrived, the NPC were expecting them. They really wanted to erase them so there is someone who wanted them to be dead.

@enigmatic_zephy  agree that prof made the suggestion to spite his son's widow and JW.

 

Btw, i do not know that Emma knows that she's a sister to the game developer. I mean based on the preview JW mentioned abt her bro.. I thought that its just the image/character being depicted on the game:sweatingbullets:

NPC's character is decided by the programmer so pretty sure he has modeled EMMA totally after his sister

my theory for the longest time has been that Prof cha has been following / keeping an eye/ got detectives chasing JW for any opportunity or with view of collecting intel on him and also on his son to keep track of things (probably wife too because he hates her, as i believe one big reason why prof was forced to abandon his son was because of SJ.. he couldn't be supportive of them when trying to pretend to be close to JW)

 

 

And therefore, it would not be surprising that Cha knew about the game. Also, up until now I see surprise in everyone's face when game is first mentioned to them, but prof cha did not react like others. He didn't even raise his eyebrows on the concept or existence of game. He probably already knew and he knew that Marco was trying to play the two parties, so got him killed!

 

Also, i don't know who is responsible, but the two deaths have to be murder - Marco definitely a murder. HS could be natural death but i incline towards murder.

 

Lastly, up until now i thought JW/HB is narrating the story to us/game audience/at a press conference to next gen gamers.. BUT then i realised he doesn't need to share the unnecessary details. The only scenario he would have to share complete details is when POLICE is involved.. so more like telling the police what happened (but this line of thought contradicts murder theory.. in this case it will come back to game killing people)

Omma yaaaa... Daebak episode 9  - Hello Zombie #2 :D

 

At the beginning of episode, the story was about a naration of JW's theory, yay even JW has his own theory - what about us?? .

I think it's No Way that HJ killed Marco his best gamer friend. I hope SJ was there looking for Marco after 10 min he defeated him in the game. Something can happen within that 10 minutes man, Otoke... who else to suspect?? (my first suspect is the drug dealer, someone else here said CHS minions). Maybe Marco dies from drug overdose? -ewww that's a bad theory.

 

LOL about the proposal ring, JW will propose for the 3rd time? if in the end JW finally get a ring for HJ, I'm gonna call JW "Lord of the Rings. Su-Jin is getting prettier, I can see JW's old loving flame in his eyes but Taylor Swift said "We are never ever ever getting back together, like...ever"

Okay. I really hate KSB. I don’t see what his actual purpose in this drama yet so I’m going to say he’s a bad guy. Haha. He said he wasn’t going to sue JW but for what? Like this is not his business, sure, HJ is his best friend/crush but still. Maybe I’m just irked because I don’t like him. He punched JW! His handsome face! But just cause JW is handicapped doesn’t mean he can’t fight! I was waiting for JW to really kick his richard simmons! Lol 

 

On on another note, professor Cha, ugh I don’t like him at all. I thought director Park would help over throw JW but I guess not. I’m wondering that part in episode 2, the flash forward, is the train coming back to Granada again and JW is more prepared to fight the NPCs.

 

 

Spoiler

In the preview, SJ is back... director park says it’s a suicide mission. Could it be possible for SJ to come back and JW had to take his spot in the game? Ahhh idk!

The game is actually getting out of hand. I think the murders and zombies is making the whole thing complicated. And the way the story is told is not helpful too, we have multiple flashbacks and even flashbacks in flashbacks. Its quite challenging to keep up with whats going on haha.

 

I havent watched W too. So i cant make a comparison.

 The flashbacks in flashbacks thing is so true, it makes building the time line of events a bit confusing, like last week's ep 8 didn't need all that many flashbacks, I wonder if it's a director or a writer's choice, cause in my opinion I'd rather see the events happening in the now instead of how they did it. I'll try to keep up. 

Ok, I'm off to watch the ep with subs 

later :kiss_wink::kiss_wink:

Okaaaay, I just got done with ep 9...and here are my thoughts!!!

 

 I wasnt even paying attention to JW's narration to what he "thinks" happened to SJ and Marco, because that's just what he thinks, I'm pretty sure that is not what happened...I think after someone reads his will, the writer will give us another timeline of the real events that happened perhaps when SJ comes back and explains and then at the end when the real bad guy/mastermind appears, so I'm waiting for that account of the story!!!

 

As usual MJ killing her scenes, I loved how JW walked in on SJ and played along making her fluster because he didnt come back with a ring :D

 

there's seriously something wrong with KB and I have a feeling Halmoni is playing dumb but she knows way more than she is leading on I dont think she is as clueless as she pretends to be...I think either they did a really bad cut/edit or they will show us a scene of the three after Halmoni interrupted the touch and them having a conversation....I kinda felt a teeny weeny bad for KB when JW just pushes him with a cane and there's nothing he can do LMAO

 

speaking of the touch...I need to go back and watch:wub: that reaaaally slow tender touch :wub:who knew a tear wipe could be so romantic...melting!!

 

SEC SEO seriously heartbroken :heartbreak: I hope that doesn't mean he's killed in real life coz he's one of the sweetest and so devoted to JW, I wouldn't want anything to happen to him. Why do I think someone let out all the bad guys on him so that JW can go on the quest alone...

 

So does SJ coming back mean JW is now stuck and lost in Granada?

 

But what if the bad guy is the game programmer, I mean he can see everything and has been working on the code?!!! 

 

I guess at this point everyone is suspect!!!

 

HJ is like a military girlfriend/wife waiting for her love to come back from battle. If this is her only role to stay in Seoul and wait then they really have lost an opportunity of making her more interesting by allowing her to play the game and be badass I could see them side by side fighting, I mean there are plenty of girl gamers...is that why they had to kill off Sec SEO so that JW can have a new ally? crossing fingers

Jung Hee Joo is like a strict mommy to Jin Woo and he apparently loving it... he looks like an 8 years old being scolded by mom for being naughty... the CEO who gave her 10 billion won like it was no biggy enjoying all the scolds and He Joo’s fast rapping.. basically in order to make himself “qualified” to be with her... he changed his life goal to finding Se Ju..  

 

and yes that Prof. Cha is a shady power maniac old man....

Just finished watching the episode. So many thoughts! :wub: First and foremost, I am liking the fact that the writer is maintaining the narrative - the story is being told from JinWoo's perspective with a good balance between facts and his theories. If you are not paying attention, the viewer can get easily misdirected - today's episode was a good example of this. JW is assuming that SeJu is being chased by NPC Marco based on his personal experience and the information he collected on him; we don't know this to be a fact.:ph34r:

 

Another aspect that I really loved is the details of the game displayed on the screen - the steady increase of points, the upgrading of swords to guns, the limitation of the weapon usage and limitation of fight area. One thing I would like to see is the pattern of appearance of NPC Cha. :phew: Up till now it seems that he appears randomly, but there needs to be some pattern that we are missing.

 

I am going to wait to see tomorrow's episode before I make any more predictions on the game story-line, but here are my thoughts on the real life events :

 

12 hours in the life of a CEO - It took JW  almost 12hrs to go meet HeeJu. In the meanwhile, he went back to his office to make arrangements for his travel to Granada, convinced HeeJu to get off the plane, finalized the divorce with ExWife2, met Minju and got her an audition and discussed a hypothetical proposal, had a chat with the Director informing him about his new quest, collected new special items, met with his ex-wife1, director and Prof Cha for a matchmaking lunch - all by lunchtime. :crazy: Phew, talk about being busy! :w00t: He was warned against Prof. Cha by both the Director and ExWife1. He planned to leave for Granada by afternoon as the quest is time sensitive. Still we see that he goes to meet HeeJu in the late evening. If I have to make a guess, JinWoo took some measures to protect himself against what ever Prof. Cha has planned. He knows how to play his cards well.B)

 

50 shades of Crying HeeJu - I have seen a lot of controversial opinions about the way HeeJu's character has been written. I swear she has cried in each and every episode :D. I now understand why it is always raining in the game. Its all because of HeeJu's tears! :D I am more amused than upset about it. Thankfully, PSH has pulled it off well. Having a younger brother myself, I simply cannot imagine sitting sedately at home, while someone else goes to save my sibling <_< I, would personally have loved to see HeeJu being an active participant in the game [there are female gamers out there, myself included!] and in her search for her brother. Unfortunately, all the female characters in this drama are secondary characters placed there as a narrative element in the main lead's POV. I understand [and do not appreciate!] that the writer is catering to a patriarchal audience.

 

The tale of the missing love story: And last but not the least, I see that there has been a bit of an unrest in a certain fraction of the fandon because of the lack of romance between JinWoo and HeeJu. That's because, they are not the main couple. Memories of Alhambra is actually a love story between JinWoo and SeJu :P:P:P I remember seeing the first few episodes, when JinWoo was exploring the game and he looked smitten! Had he found SeeJu on the platform the other day, he would have proposed on the spot! :P:P:P He even admitted today that SeJu is his life's goal  :wub:

 

Jokes aside, eagerly looking forward to tomorrow's episode! I hope the secretary is alive. Give that man a raise and a bulletproof vest + some more protective gear JinWoo-ya!!

There are two things that are bothering me. JW went to Granada because he received a message from master. The message was actually a quest that he can only do, once he is in Granada. He has no idea about the content of the quest. 

But what if the mastermind has hacked master's account and used the message to lure JW to go back to Granada? There, JW could be easily killed. Notice that the enemies were waiting for them in Granada (in the train, at the station). And they knew that City Hunter was Zinu's ally. Therefore I am suspecting Mr. Park being involved in all this. First, he knew about the alliance between City Hunter/Seo and Zinu. Not many know about it. Just like he knew when JW and Seo would arrive in Barcelona and take the train to Granada. Then in the preview, Park tells HJ that this quest is a suicidal quest.

Professor Cha and Park have no idea about the importance of HJ in JW's life. He didn't meet her for one whole year and he just said to Park that Finding SJ was his life's goal. So in Park's eyes, SJ is just linked to the game as he is one of his creators. But JW knows pretty well that in order to be with HJ, he needs to find SJ. Park has no idea about the real meaning behind JW's words. Cha proposed the remarriage between JW and SJ because he is unaware of JW's affection for HJ. He kept his feelings quite to himself. So if JW dies, then the shares could go to professor Cha and Park. That's why it was important that JW divorces before going to Granada. I am still convinced that JW has always been the target from the start.

Let's talk about the light-hearted moments first because the game has become like 'he-who-should-not-be-named'!:crazy:

 

-MinJu the cupid. Her efforts will pay off one day. We pray that JW's next visit to HJ's house, will be with flowers and a ring, whenever that day shall come. Fighting!

-KSB fighting look so funny. If he is a villain, then he is going to be a funny looking villain. More than that, I laughed when JW beat him with his cane. And adding salt to his wounds was halemoni's rolling pin. Now I am thinking what if he joins hands with Prof.Cha in the villain brigade..:ph34r:

-Binnie's neck! PSH's fingers are very lucky..lol!

-JW is actually very talkative. He rarely gives HeJu a chance to speak, and only when she cries or starts to rant, then he pauses to listen.

-It was actually a small cut. Our oppa has survived a six-floor fall and nth number of assassins plus a zombie attack. But still, it was a pleasing scene to watch. And someone is burinnngg..ooo!

-There was something after 'the tear wiping'. Or if there isn't then its bad direction, because I felt it was abruptly ended, no bye, no good luck, no greetings..he just went off(??)

-JW's dialogue was interesting on his way back, 'even though we are not going together but its an important journey for both of us'. Indeed it is because on this journey depends JW-HJ's future. And now after watching the preview, I am more concerned about JW than SeJu. It took one year for SeJu to return(supposedly), and I don't know about JW.

 

 

Anyways, like most you have said, Marco being zombie was JW's theory and his assumption which is probably not even valid now. I think we have been played by the writer and there is going to be another explanation or timeline once SeJu enter's the picture.

Just a trivia remark regarding the train station scenes: they are filmed in Budapest. 

Most likely Budapest Teleki Train Station

MinJu - JinWoo scenes are a treat to watch! I feel like she is another little elf NPC who is giving JinWoo his sense of humor back! Apart from the game timeline, their interactions are the true highlights of the drama for me :wub: JinWoo's secretary heard MinJu mention about a proposal and was tasked with taking MinJu to meet the director of a huge entertainment industry. I am guessing that HeeJu will visit the office he next day to meet the Director. I hope that the secretary doesn't make 2+2=5 and start any unfounded rumors!

He really looked so pathetic and like a petulant child! I have a feeling he will team up with ExWife2 to go to the press and try and cause trouble for JinWoo. I was secretly pleased to see Halmoni tell him that he has been taking liberties of their hospitality, she clearly doesn't like him much :P

A 100 times this! I am starting to think the same. There is no evidence that there is another rogue NPC but its been implied. Hopefully tomorrow we will get more clues!
