@cherriesblue According to the subs, the paper said " Samuel, some amount of money (20million????. Not sure) and to be aware of the tattoo guy. Yep, husband and wife fighting in the interrogation room was just a ruse. But it looks like, although his wife got released from jail, dude ends up in a mental hospital???? Or is it inside the jail according to the preview:mellow:. Hopefully he starts talking because he is gonna get killed for sure.

 

@bebebisous33  Edward Park (The actor) always plays a villian character lol. It was too good to be true for him to be innocent in this whole mess:lol:. But true, the Prime Minister is probably the big boss and I have a feeling that it was also him who gave the charcoal/lighter/alcohol to Yun to kill himself though it looks like his plan didn't work out so well. 

 

@katakwasabi Doctor says her spine got fractured (a small part) but our girl walked, sat down during the court hearing and no blood from her injury:skull:. I have no words to say too lol:sweatingbullets::lol:.

 

I want the president to pay his deeds the worst way. Dude had the nerve to say " Did he just richard simmons on me?" during DG TV broadcast<_<.

I went on googling about her injury. I'm not a doctor and I thought the sudden spine injury was odd. She walked just fine, she even sat in the ambulance. Maybe it was because of Dalgun piggybacking her...pushing the bullet against her spine. Heh.

 

If not...writer is trying to make me believe Haeri got shot in her gut...she didn't bleed out, the bullet hits her spine and yet no internal organs were hit? I can't. My brain can't accept this illogical situation. Any doctors can clarify is her injuries medically accurate? Haha

 

Also this...this freaking ambulance stopped at a traffic light!!!! You're an ambulance, act like one and go between cars, force them to make way.

Like the ambulance in this clip

 

 

But then I found this....this ambulance really did stop at a traffic light with sirens blaring. Yikes. I'm accustomed to see ambulances in emergencies move ahead and cars will slowdown and make way.....

No, she didn’t kill him, Chief K asked her a favor to look at the cause of his death because Micheal is a friend of the Chief

@katakwasabi ROFL :joy::mrgreen:. Whichever doctor diagnosed her, needs his license to be stripped lol. They should have just said the bullet gazed her and that's the reason why there wasn't a lot of blood coming out. Spinal injuries are dangerous and she shouldn't have been moving around from the moment she got shot.

 

An ambulance with its sirens on and waiting for the traffic light:skull::warning:. I couldn't believe my eyes. Emergency vehicles always have the first priority. 

 

I decided not to question things again. KDrama logic was always the opposite of real logic Lol:joy:.

Kdrama logic is so....illogical?! It's absurd and it makes me laugh. Lol :lol:

 

Anyways this:

 

Dalgun: I know how to reallign bones and massage muscles, basicly everything.

Dalgun: Don't you know I'm a martial artist?

Me: I know you're no doctor or physiotherapist. But...okay...you just know everything, even bone and muscle related. Pffft.

Never ever question Kdrama logic, lol. Just go with it. I don't know how you can basically be slow dancing with a spinal fracture, but...kdrama logic! :D Likewise, just don't think too hard on the conspiracy logic. There is a conspiracy. Bad! But our hero will find the truth! Good! Just go with it, it makes it enjoyable. :)

 

That aside, I loved the moment in ep 13 when Chief Kang showed up in front of creepy NIS guy who thought he was dead. Hehe. Yes, he's coming back to haunt you. 

 

Also, this is the best thing I've ever seen Suzy in. I realize mostly this is a thriller and not a romance, but I'm feeling the comfortable easiness between her character and LSG's. I've seen dramas where the only reason the characters like each other is Because the Writer Said So. I've seen dramas where there was more chemistry with the second lead than the first (and not on purpose because of the plot, but because of the actors). The point of this is not romance and there is no time, what with the dodging bullets, etc. But just as hm, the chemistry of two characters going through something together, to me it feels easy, natural, not forced, and not overdone, either. Maybe it's because they have already worked together before? But I have no trouble falling into their characters and believing in them. It doesn't always happen for me when I watch a drama, but this is nice and I'm enjoying it.

I like Dalgun-Haeri bickering too. I just hoped this drama didn't try to force a romance between Dalgun and Haeri. Their friendship can be the core of the drama.

 

Ep 13...and I still see no romance sparks despite all the OTP moments writer put in. The dance scene...unnecessary. Why was she even in the dark hosptial corridor alone to begin with? Why try stand with a fractured spine, alone in a dark corridor without supervision? Because the writer said so...we need an OTP moment. Hehehehe

 

I did not watch Gu Family book, so I don't have lingering feelings of their previous role. Unfortunately, I see Dalgun-Haeri romance/romcom scenes totally forced. They need external factors to push their romance in an unnatural way: eg standing in a hoisted ship container and tumbled around, the weird prison high five cheered by other prisoners, the egg scene etc2. Imo, the writer didn't allow the characters to connect in a meaningful way much. The only moment I feel a real connection between them was in the ambulance when she said she can't do this again.

I guess what I feel is a teamwork/friendship feel between them, and to that level it feels natural. I didn't watch Gu Family Book, either, so I don't know what I'm missing--I just mean that they already know each other's style of acting from working together before. The point of the drama is NOT a romance. But there *is* teamwork in there, and to that level I am feeling it.

Someone who's still catching up speculating:

 

Edward Kim's secretary Micky is Michael's "girlfriend"? She was also the one that murdered Michael? The tattoo on that woman's back also connects with the one on her wrist that she showed to the police officer in Morocco.

 

If this is the case... Edward Kim is one very scary man.

Lol! I will be happy for more KTW but this will not happen. If there is a season 2, it will be centered around sniper Dalgun and Haeri-not-Haeri. I have a wild theory that Haeri has an evil twin. Haha

 

Also I rather Ki Tae Woong quit working with the NIS and work with Bullet Chicken ahjumma and super genius hacker or go study medicine and be a surgeon, since his dad owns a hospital. So many spin-off opportunities with his character lol

lols you had me laughing at your comment!  I'd rather like the notion of KTW working with the Bullet Chicken or as a doctor!

 

Haeri with an evil twin? Why not!

@frozentundra- you have restored my faith in reading this forum again.  I logged in with a heavy heart knowing that @katakwasabiwould have criticised every aspect and every scene and pretty much everything about the show again. Before anybody yells at me, that’s ok, that’s what forums and discussions are for.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion and we all perceive shows differently.  I promise I am not looking for a fight. 
‘That’s why I LOVED comments from you @frozentundra. So wise. So on point. It is a k-drama and not a documentary. I absolutely enjoyed ep13, I finally got some satisfaction and some closure (Kang beating up MJS was pure gold). I simply ignored the stuff that didn’t make sense, so much easier to enjoy a show this way.

 

Speaking only for myself, I love the OTP and welcomed all the slow and lighter moments they gave us in  ep13 after all the trauma.  I am totally feeling the chemistry between CDG & GHR and nothing felt forced or unnecessary. I don’t think there’s anything weird or abnormal about two people getting closer after experiencing what they have. I acknowledge Vagabond is not a romance but an action/thriller but I do love the little crumbs they throw us from time to time romance-wise and I am enjoying the show for what it is.  Despite all the craziness I will miss it when it ends!

Hmmm....I'm not sure how I should feel by you calling me out and saying you logged in with a heavy heart....

 

Imo I didn't 'criticize every aspect and every scene and pretty much everything about the show' though. If you backread, I have posted positives and praise too but maybe the gifs I posted lately are more eye catching. But they're made for fun, and I'm still watching the show.

As you said, this is a forum so please feel free to log in whenever and share your thoughts too. Honestly, I'm surprised this thread isn't as active as several other drama threads, I really thought it would be considering how huge the main cast fanbase are. I'm just a small speck in the whole VB viewer pool and I habitually discuss dramas. I don't even mind criticizing my faves when it comes to it (this has happened lol).

 

I enjoy watching Vagabond, the ridiculous moments make me laugh, the show is bonkers and I still come back each week. 

 

Anyways...I absolutely adore the closeness of the cast and crew behind the scenes and I applaud all the cast/crew hardwork to make this drama happen. Also, I find it amazing everyone stuck together even after multiple delays.

In the 1st episode, where does it say that it was 2019 in the sniper Cha in Kiria scene?

 

The present story we are watching is in 2012 since 50 year anniv. Of Morocco and Korea relations Is 2012.

 

So it seems the time line is 6 years 6 years.  6 years ago, Cha interviewed for the stuntman job, as well as Haeri applied for the NIS position.

 

Then 6 years after, the Kiria scene.

Same! I thought there would be lots of discussion. 

 

Action thrillers aren't my main favorite genre (I like hm, usually fewer bullets), but there are some things that I think are very well done, so I keep coming back. The way they set things up with little Hoon was really well done, it reverberates through the whole show. And the other family members of the other victims--there are some nice feels in there. Plus the production values are fantastic! So yeah...don't go away, people. :)

Betrayal? Most wanted? So it's not Haeri but him?

 

What, why, and who did he betray?

 

What did he do to become a most wanted man? His astonishment at seeing Haeri is because he's surprised to see that she's the one chasing him/hunting him down?

 

Could he have been framed? Could this be one giant set up? I can't see CDG being in the wrong here, and I can't see Haeri being an enemy after they've been through life and death together.

I feel like Edward Park will be the betrayer. I'm now firmly sold on the theory somewhere in the thread that he is the big bad here.

 

As for the major characters dying, the lead couple has too thick of a plot armor to die. I feel like KTW might go if they're looking for maximum emotional impact. Or it might be Chief Kang if killing off KTW is a little too much.

Isn't Dalgun always the wanted man? He is dragging the Korean goverment and NIS in mud. And he also is not on the good side of the Morroco goverment. I'm still with my theory that there's more to Haeri than what is shown (secretly hoping she's a villain spy).

 

Anyways..from the description 'some of the major characters will die'....why do I feel KTW is gonna die soon. I need to mentally prepare myself for the possibility of him dying, which is highly likely. 

 

A VB 2nd season seems to be possible, because there are articles on Naver about it.
