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

Recommended Posts

I'm so baffled while watching ep 9. And time flew really fast. It feels one hour is just like 30 seconds. Whoahhh... 

 

I hope City Hunter will be fine. The game UI tells JW that he had lost his ally. Noo.... then JW has to fight alone. 

 

Ah.. I am so happy when JW beats SB back, I hate him for pushing HJ away when she tried to stop him. This guy is really something! He acts as he has the right to do so. I'm so glad when haelmoni kick him out and give some remarks to put him back in his place. 

 

What's with the preview? SJ is coming back? I hope it won't be the cliffhanger ending of ep 10. And another one week to wait... heol...

 

When JW said to HJ that she can prove what he said when she comes to her office. She needs the lenses to play the game and to see what she couldn't. Seriously, please dramagod let her play. I'm dying to see her make some moves. Hahaha.. like saving her brother and JW. Hmmm... ;)

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!

Am i the only one who is dissapointed that half of the episode was only JW's speculation/delusions?

 

So whatever happened in early ep 9 could be completely wrong and void because it is all in JW's mind only...urghhhh huhuhu.

 

It is already half way through the series, i hoped we have some concrete explanation of what is going on.

I was bothered while watching the series, by the following details:

Why covered up the unexpected death of your son? Why not bothered to find out how, why. Business reasons, legit. But we are humans, we are driven by emotions. Given the situation, hate and revenge are on the table.

 

All the characters in the J one business development are presented in a disentangled way:  like they have their own little world, their own bubble. However, there might be boss, some mastermind knowing who is doing what in the company. New game, new partnerships, launching new product for international markets. Never shown so far.

 

At this point, the evil mind (I presume that may be old Dr. Cha) have all the info he need to create a scenario for revenge: power, money, resources, and minions to implement the orders.

Jin woo – dedicating time to level up, driven by guilt, trying to find the game creator in order to solve his own issues = his game evolution, alliances, skills, etc. may be tracked.

If so, Dr. Cha (his avatar) persistent attacks against Jin Woo probably may be tracked too.

Minions on the field who gather info where Jin Woo is, where he goes = Park, for example.

Ability to create an ambush = we have the game, the company behind and a game development unit.

For example, the terrorist in the train in a bit over Jin Woo in attack, but defense is almost twice over Jin Woo’s level. Mission kill not a leisure play with other opponents.

 

Who gain the most in this double-leveled plot? Who has the most to lose?

 

I am curious when the dark horses will appear, and what roles will they take: Healer or shaman (Hee Joo), if Park joins the game will be a regular player or designated archetype? Will the IT guy Cho going to join the frenzy as an active player?

 

And there is another aspect that bothers me: the game logins, some intended, other random, or caused by external factors. Are they caused by emotional state, adrenaline spikes, proximity with other electronic devices that activates the interface, is it a human–computer interaction that evolves concomitantly with players skills?

i think in ep 10 or 11 HJ will be joining JW as Emma maybe coz remember she also went to Budapest to film and in her interview she also tried to play the game to study on how to deliver the line . I really hope HJ will be JW ally since something might happen to Seo .

The romance between HJ and JW is developing slowly but romantically . Every time those two are together on the screen their chemistry explodes even if they’re just talking on the phone . It’s very natural to put their feelings aside based on the situation. They have to find SJ first . If you notice the expression on JW face when HJ told him what shall she do as since she’s in the airport means he listen to JW not to go to Granada . And when HJ is putting med on his wound JW talks a lot about BS like a jealous freak. Hahaha. And his expression when HJ firmly asked to sit down he just sit down like a puppy. That’s very romantic I think. A stubborn CEO like him can just listen to HJ. It looks very cute to me.

Anyway, I'm fine with the romance not being front and center, but rather a part of a more complicated whole. I mean, I would be thrilled to see a kiss between HJ and JW, but I'm willing to be patient, for the sake of the overall story on this one.

 

I am with you, I just wonder why do some people keep (even in DC) complaining about the lack of romance between JW/HJ, because if they started building romance earlier it would be weird, wouldn’t it? Was there any reason that could make they got together as couple maybe since their first met?

Remember that JW was still married YR before YR signed the divorce paper? For me, the best time for our OTP romance is started after ep 10. Slowly is better, right? 

Perhaps their relationship will be stronger and stronger when HJ get involved in the game, not as Emma, but as herself and when she come to help or rescue JW. HJ can get into the game anytime because JW had authorized her by giving his tech guy name card.

About PSH cries, well I think that were not excessive. She only cries just when the scene needed it. I love everytime she cries, it is so natural compared to other actress. Maybe the only actress who can compete her is Song Hye Kyo. 

Well, I hope everyone give some patience for our OTP, because this drama is so good even without any romance. This is the best drama in 2018.

Well, I am still at ep 2 & the story is getting more interested. So the boy who died in the train was the real programmer of the game..?! And who killed him..? Do we have any leads by now..? And the game will be a disaster in the wrong hands... Mr. Cha is a real jerk. :crazy:

 

And I am still along way from the current eps.. But I am catching it up to the current position. I hope other chingus will answer my questions!

The answer to all your questions : nothing. There are no answers as of ep 9, even the main character JW is speculating/imagining what on earth happened. Correct me if i'm wrong, ep 2 ending was the train ride to granada with guns right? If so, you can watch until ep 2 and jump to ep 10, since thats when JW is going to return to the end of ep 2. I just noticed everything that happened in between is filler with no answer to any questions :sweatingbullets:. maybe you can watch up to ep 4 and jump to ep 10 and wont miss anything with the main plot. 

 

Sidenote: i'm the minority who thinks Mr Cha is not as bad as he seems to be :lol:

well my friend... we cannot be so sure as .. as of last nights episode we only have JW assumption on what may have happened to SJ. So you can still catch up anytime ;)

@katakwasabi your thinking abt Mr. Cha is it the son or the the prof? If the son, yes I actually pity him based on some fb shown.

no matter how many times i try, I just can't seem to wrap my head around what is going on in this 'game-reality' world. :crazy:

 

In order for Marco to become Zombie, he was killed. We see that he is shot in the head, and SJ sees him as JW sees Zombie Cha..so SJ and Marco could have gotten into a dispute, battled against each other and SJ won. Both are at high levels to own modern weapons. I just can't bring myself to understand the game concept anymore. :blink:

 

The slow small moments between HJ and JW are adorably heart-fluttering. That small scene where he wipes her tears (and the conversation prior) is actually a really personal moment for these two. I really hope HJ comes into the game. However, she would have to level up to a high number in order to help JW (or become allies :) ) 

 

But oh..that KSB who punched JW. This was my initial reaction:

 

tenor.gif?itemid=13155309

 

Then, I came to the conclusion that he likes HJ to the point of jealousy and he still holds a grudge against JW for not allowing him to be a part of the meeting back in episode 3 <_<

 

@Kasmic Chingu! *hugsss* so good to see you here too! ;) we are watching a drama together again :P good old times!

Thank you so much, dear @katakwasabi & @ned_lee :wub: Then this series should be a unique series that you can skip eps as you wished but nothing you get missed on the way! In that case, I will also skip to yesterday's eps & watch tonight one so that I also can join the current conversation!!!

 

And I've heard that the writer is the one from W-two worlds... I just watched it but I lost interest on the half-way through & then dropped it! But since this series is so unique in its own way, I hope it will impress me rather than W-two worlds...

 i agree. it seems like the plot has not moved much from earlier episodes. A lot of flash backs and going back/forth on the same subjects. I am hoping that we will see a much more thorough development. Honestly, it is an intriguing concept but I am getting lost in what's going on :blink:

Yes. I'm talking about zombie cha~ daddy cha is off my radar. I dont care about daddy cha and office dude all that much for now hahaha

 

@gm4queen ahaha. If you need a rundown of whats going on up to ep 9, give us a heads up. I found ep 1-4 interesting, after that it plateaued :sweatingbullets:

 

@vangsweetie637 same here. The story telling is confusing with flashbacks and flashbacks in flashbacks..and then i remembered this was always a flashback since ep 1 hahaha. i'm staying with the drama for discussions hahaha

I'm getting too perplexed on how would happen with JW and the game during his quest journey. So to chill out.. let me talk about romance. 

 

I love how MJ presents as representative that give explanations to JW's affairs. And this time it is clear already that our CEO has divorced officially. :lol: And this girl is also the great matchmaker between JW and HJ. 

 

After watching the second time this morning (the first was focusing on the game and all), I concluded that the tear wiping scene is kind of confession from both. HJ admitted that she stills likes him despite all the lies he ever gave. And how he gives a clearer signal that he likes her too. I just love the scene when HJ mentioned the proposal and the ring that MJ told her just in time JW entered. I love how he jokingly told her to go back and brought at least some flowers from nearby shop. LOL.
