That's what we'll find out soon :D

 

Soon - hm - maybe the will end with the start. I mean if that scene is really as I guess in 2019 than we have a gap of 7 years between the plane crush and the opening scene. My guess - but actually its way to early for a show like this to make wild guesses is - after CDG could finnished that case he became the (secret) hero who could change and works for this country - and lost contact with GHR. And like that he found her again.

 

Damn - why is a week so long...

What im guessing should happened after all of it is they would separate and meet again on that moment.

This makes sense.

After watching the preview of Episode 3, I probably have some pictures in mind. When Haeri and DalGun were chased by terrorists, her clothes were the same as when she went to the police station. On the other hand, the location that DalGun was attacked and fall down on the floor seen like at the airport. I guess DalGun and Haeri were attacked by terrorists and almost lost their lives, and even her colleagues had been killed. Haeri realized that they could not confront the terrorists by themselves and decided to return to Korea to report to the National Intelligence Services and seeking assistance from them. But DalGun was missing after being attacked by the terrorists at the airport. Then it was connected to the opening of Episode 1, and DalGun, who was temporarily lost in memory, was taken to the Kingdom of Kiria in North Africa and trained as a killer. Haeri also came to North Africa because of her undercover mission. DalGun saw Haeri, who had met before, and suddenly recovered his memory...…

 

I guess they're going to make him another Jerom? A super soldier of sorts.

 

We've seen some glimpses of that in the teasers.

I was reading some reviews and found an interesting point that I've not noticed while I was watching Episode 1. 

 

All the action sequences and reckless terrorist chasing/fist fighting of CDG seem to be intentionally put together. Even though he was a civilian, he already experienced all similar actions during movie filming in his stuntman days - which was shown at the beginning of the episode. You can find 1-1 matching for most action scenes. 

 

Jumping off from a building (stunt action) - jumping off from a roof (Morocco),

Getting hit by a brick on the head (stunt action) - getting hit by a flowerpot (Morocco)

...and so on :o

Just finished episode 2, man what an emotional episode with the victims of the plane crash, I can’t help but cry, and the pilot was an accomplice, my gosh what a revaluation. I like the pace of the story now that HR is getting involve in the situation. DG is really quite a tough cookie, he is so sticky to the situation. Very hot headed and he is not going anywhere with his attitude, anyway can’t wait for their character development

Vagabond: Episode 1

by LollyPip

Vagabond01-00438.jpg

Lee Seung-gi and Suzy are reunited in SBS and Netflix’s new action-thriller, Vagabond. This is more than just a show full of action sequences and intrigue – though there are plenty of those – it also threatens to break your heart from the very beginning. An uncle’s devastating loss leads to the discovery that there may be more to the tragedy than it seems, and one young woman could be the key to the truth… or the orchestrator of death.

In episode 2 at around the 47 minute mark,  when the man in black the one who crashed the plane received a message from his laptop,  the name of the sender is not in Arabic,  it is in Hebrew letters.    I also do not think of the man as a terrorist, but hired by the company to destroy the name of Dynamic System.  We'll see...

 

By the way recognized the actors who played Dr Song and Dr In Soo from Dr. Romantic Teacher Kim.  The nrgotiator is the actor who played the chairman of Hanjo in Stranger.  Prime Minister is the deputy hospital director in Life.

Good catch in noticing that detail! 

 

I agree that this disaster was caused by Dynamic and that it is industrial sabotage rather than terrorism.  That's a lot sadder really because it means all those innocent people died for corporate greed.

I find this article interesting~~ https://www.cinemaescapist.com/2019/09/review-vagabond-kdrama-netflix-suzy/

 

Snippet: Vagabond’s premise also reinforces South Korea’s ascendant geopolitical clout. Along with other recent K-dramas like Designated Survivor: 60 Days, Vagabond hints at Korea’s own version of the military-industrial complex.

 

Early on in the show, we learn that a shadowy defense contractor called John and Mark (perhaps inspired by Lockheed Martin with its compound name) likely caused the plane crash, in an effort to discredit top rival Dynamic Systems (seemingly an amalgam of General Dynamics and Boeing) in a competition to provide South Korea’s next generation fighter jet. Vagabond also contains various scenes set in the Blue House (Korea’s presidential office), hinting at how high the conspiracy might reach.

 

Conspiracies of such juicy nature—involving global defense contractors—only happen when countries with enough geopolitical and economic clout come into play. The fact that South Korean TV writers can naturally craft these conspiracies perhaps reflects the country’s middle power status in the real world. In fact, allegations of influence peddling clouded South Korea’s decision to select the F-35 as its next generation fighter, and top aerospace contractor Korea Aerospace Industries made headlines in 2017and 2018 over corruption charges.

This really made me think of the recent drama WWW and the current drama Graceful Family.  Both of those deal with how public perception and personal opinion can be altered by those in power by manipulation of key search terms and by spamming news content.  

 

The skewing of information about the fighters in this drama is very similar because of corporate manipulation.  The public is reacting to what they are lead to believe but it isn't true at all, and people have been killed one company to get this reaction so that they can sell a contract.  

 

Dramas reflect what goes on in the world.  What is reflected with Vagabond is quite worrying, especially as it is in regards to the military.

 

We rely so much on the web and we can be too easily swayed by what we see.  We don't really know the reality of anything that is going on at any level.  What information is being invented that we know nothing of?  What lies are we buying?  It's a scary world. 

 

.....and it kinda looks like I flew off topic there, possibly.  Apologies.

 

Back to the show: 

I have a feeling that the time jump between 2012 and 2019 is likely to take place midway through the drama.  Maybe we'll have a lead-up with the leads forming a relationship that is abruptly broken with one of them trying to save the other.  (The trouble with dramas is that I tend to see how I would write them.  :P )

@Ameera Ali I am here!!! and hello also to the others!

 

So I skipped the plane crash scene because I just can't handle such scenes now. Little nephew gone to soon :(    I think I would've really enjoy watching the uncle-nephew relationship for this show.

 

Like many others, I couldn't stand the shaky camera and too much of close-ups during the fighting scenes... Come on, we want to see some awesome moves clearly. Other than that, the chase and run, fighting scenes, are cool.

 

My guess for the first scene is that both of them had a fall-out as they're almost reaching the result of their investigation into the plane crash conspiracy. Fall out could be due to manipulated circumstances by the higher ups that caused misunderstanding between them. I hope that it wouldn't be long before we come back to present time. I'd rather not watch too much of 2006 timeline. Most importantly ~ when will SSR appear? I'm guessing the current 2019 timeline, another reason I need the show to move faster back to first scene.

 

Overall, I enjoyed the drama and of course will continue to watch! ;)
