Recommended Posts

A minute of relax before the 10th ep  :)

Behind the scenes DKW is not so scary ;)

 

 

Although... Why his hand is red? These two have already killed someone just now?  :w00t:  PD?!
Their smiles really scares me :blink:

The ratings are falling apart just like the drama! :tears:

So does mean that there's no hope for Kang Woo and Kwon Joo? :sleepy:

 

Maybe this means Jin Hyuk and Kwon Joo are meant to be.....:heart:

 

Ocn made a sassy answer to that on their insta:

 

Obviously romance is not in the plan. -_-

 

 

 EP9: it was bad with some saving grace moments but sadly not many. I don't know why the main plot seems so badly executed while the initial concept  (or at least my theory on it) looked ambitious but i feel like the answer lies in the choice of the wrong of PD and wrong new lead actor ( his acting is getting worse since few ep).    

 

Quick review :

The big revelation that Kang Woo is the son of a man who killed a little japanese girl, cut her ear and threw her body in a well, a crime for which he might helped his father by luring the girl, probably because he has inherited his father's multiple personality disorder, doesn't surprise me. It fits entirely the character, his actions and motivations.

 

I would love this scenario to be true because it would add a lot of complexity to the plot: it would mean the killer had a real reason  (other than his taste for Kang Woo's strong anger and resentment) to try to frame Kang Woo: he's a criminal who escaped  justice (though it happened during his childhood), and was partially telling the truth, just as Kang Woo was telling the truth about being framed.

It would  send back to back those killers, the truth being between the two sides.      

 

However it's like the writer decided to backpedal on this scenario the minute she offered it: there's too many signs in favor of him being used as  scapegoat to hide the big organisation created by  Bang Je Soo, who is rising as a cult prophetic leader. Since his last killing, he doesn't look anymore like a disturbed  mamma boy, but a physically very strong and dangerous maniac, with a God complex. The evil en him really raised its head.

The manipulation and murder of the old security guard who liked him like a son and those women victims of dating abuse and/or were denied justice were especially disgusting.

 

He's clearly a man with a lot of pride: being raised and mocked as the son of a hooker has messed him big time, giving his natural tendency to not suffer humiliation and to prefer to inflict it on others.  

Kwon Yul did a great job in his limited scenes.

 

The writer seems to love so much her male lead that I'm even starting to consider the theory's proposed by @40somethingahjumma of a possible brainwashing.  Tere are too many clues that certain words and objects have been said or left in certain places to trigger a blackout: the way the nurse who tried to kill herself muttered the word Kosuke (she was manipulated to remind Kang Woo of his past) and the fact that Kang Woo find a child shoe (which had no reason to be here) in Ho Min 's hospital room , leading to a crazy attitude which conveniently was filmed by the cctv in the corridor and used againt him.

So it would be a good reason to wash away his crimes and to let him back in the team.

 

I loved the actresses who played the victims: they made the struggle of their characters so real! I feel like that they didn't have hard time to imagine what he would be like to suffer from dating abuse, considering its level in SK.

It's interesting  how the drama revealed the difference between woman's and men violence: woman went their way to bring a form of "justice" which they have been denied as victims, while men (the previous killers used by Bang Je Soo) were more about perception of themselves: how the society denied them the access to certain rights that they felt were due to them. A difference coming obviously from a status of priviledges that men have but don't recognize.    

 

Finally we got some time between the GTT girls, but so short and it was all about work. Can the women in this drama  bond about something else than the abuse they are suffering from men?         

 

I loved to see Kwon Joo lead the interrogation though it's not her mission. She did very well with her mission but still i prefer when things are more balanced and when she can go in the field. 

Speaking of my heroine, i feel like her position as a leader has become a shape without substance: Kang Woo was very commanding if not authoritian, giving order right and left and she was left often to follow and just organize  the back up. A complete contrast with the start of the season. <_<

But the biggest shock and fear that i have now is that she could lose her power: the scene where she couldn't hear anything for few minutes seem like  a serious alert. :tears:

Based on how OCN has been promoting LJW, and  dismissing her almost completely, i wonder if the writer isn't prepping us to a season 3 without her....

Yeah, I agree with whoever said it before... the more they try and convince us that Kang Woo is a psychopathic maniac the less I believe it. :D There's just an overabundance of evidence which just makes me go... "yeah sure". There can be such a thing too much evidence especially when Norman Bates is calling the shots. Most of the time evidence is meagre but the show is unusually generous... and it just keeps giving. ;) Maybe I've just watched too many police procedurals. :P

 

I'm not really convinced that KW is Kosuke either. Sorry. Sure, he has blackouts but dissociative disorder and luring girls? I'm sceptical. But of course he's suspicious and acts it... and that's partly his own fault because he doesn't trust anyone with his entire life story least of all himself.

 

If Norman Bates is who we think he is... his real relationship with KW that is... wow... words fail me. A literal evil twin perhaps. Well... not quite a "twin" ;)

 

I first heard about Fabre when I read Gerald Durrell's My Family and Other Animals in my teens. I'd never read any of his works until recently because of Voice 2. I started reading The Life of the Spider by Fabre this past week because firstly, I thought the reference might have some far-reaching significance and then well, I'm fascinated by spiders because we have so many kinds in our part of the world. In the first chapter about the female tarantula, Fabre references Leon Dufour another entomologist, I imagine.

 

Quote

‘Lycosa tarantula by preference inhabits open places, dry, arid, uncultivated places, exposed to the sun.  She lives generally—at least when full-grown—in underground passages, regular burrows, which she digs for herself.  These burrows are cylindrical; they are often an inch in diameter and run into the ground to a depth of more than a foot; but they are not perpendicular.  The inhabitant of this gut proves that she is at the same time a skilful hunter and an able engineer.  It was a question for her not only of constructing a deep retreat that could hide her from the pursuit of her foes: she also had to set up her observatory whence to watch for her prey and dart out upon it.  The Tarantula provides for every contingency: the underground passage, in fact, begins by being vertical, but, at four or five inches from the surface, it bends at an obtuse angle, forms a horizontal turning and then becomes perpendicular once more.  It is at the elbow of this tunnel that the Tarantula posts herself as a vigilant sentry and does not for a moment lose sight of the door of her dwelling; it was there that, at the period when I was hunting her, I used to see those eyes gleaming like diamonds, bright as a cat’s eyes in the dark.

 

Much of that description reminds me of Norman Bates' lair which is a basement and there's a passageway leading to the "control room". 

But what really fascinated me was this observation by Dufour by way of Fabre:

 

Quote

One day, when I had had a successful hunt after these Lycosae, I picked out two full-grown and very powerful males and brought them together in a wide jar, in order to enjoy the sight of a combat to the death.  After walking round the arena several times, to try and avoid each other, they were not slow in placing themselves in a warlike attitude, as though at a given signal.  I saw them, to my surprise, take their distances and sit up solemnly on their hind-legs, so as mutually to present the shield of their chests to each other.  After watching them face to face like that for two minutes, during which they had doubtless provoked each other by glances that escaped my own, I saw them fling themselves upon each other at the same time, twisting their legs round each other and obstinately struggling to bite each other with the fangs of the mandibles.  Whether from fatigue or from convention, the combat was suspended; there was a few seconds’ truce; and each athlete moved away and resumed his threatening posture.  This circumstance reminded me that, in the strange fights between cats, there are also suspensions of hostilities.  But the contest was soon renewed between my two Tarantulae with increased fierceness.  One of them, after holding victory in the balance for a while, was at last thrown and received a mortal wound in the head.  He became the prey of the conqueror, who tore open his skull and devoured it.  After this curious duel, I kept the victorious Tarantula alive for several weeks.’

 

It struck me forcibly that Norman Bates has positioned himself as the human observer watching his "insect acquisitions" from the relative comfort and safety of his control room in a grotesque role reversal. He observes his subjects while confining himself to his "glass bottle". He too has set up a contest... a battle of wits and endurance. He perceives himself as the god-like figure of the entomologist that defines not only the terms of engagement between his life specimens but also the outcome. Of course he isn't truly the dispassionate observer but he is curious at what his subjects will do when he throws them crumbs or bait. Will behaviourism rule the day... will they act in predictable ways? When he plants a seed of doubt, will they respond accordingly... will doubt, suspicion and outright hostility win the day? 

 

It isn't entirely a game with him... although games seem to be a large part of how he's controlling and setting up the victims. I have no doubt that the show is saying something not-too-subtle about gaming addiction and how that can become a foothold for unscrupulous individuals to manipulate the gullible and the alienated.

 

At the end of the day it isn't about KW per se. He is like the cat among the pigeons on some level but his guilt or innocence isn't paramount. The Golden Time Team had become a well-oiled machine... and it was until TL Jang was murdered and KW came on board. What's paramount is whether human society can function if trust is at a minimum. That seems like an obvious thing to say but is trust a choice or is it earned? Probably a lot of both. But the point is... a team is a microcosm of society... Norman Bates has his own team too... let's not forget that and they've got it together much more because they are in control of all the facts and the big picture. And it's equally true that trust is near impossible without knowledge and honesty. Also true is that a society cannot function if there's no clarity regarding justice.

 

I also wanted to talk about case of the week. That also had me hopping mad. Honestly, I am an evil person but I thought the women let Kim Min Son off rather lightly by trying to kill him. But I suspect that's the influence of Kwon Yul's minion nurse. I would've strung him up and made him confess on video to what he did and life streamed it, for example. :P There were other things they could have done. I know they did try to use legal means to no avail. Since they manage to find each other, they could have found a more legitimate and vocal means of publicizing their cause.

Still I'm glad to see the show highlight the horrors of dating abuse in conjunction with rich parents covering the problems of their wayward offspring with money and clout. I guess it's not that far removed from domestic violence. And the father was an absolute toad.

 

I am really enjoying Voice 2 so far. It is a different beast from its predecessor. But yeah, I'm generally fond of OCN cop shows mostly because they deal with real world issues in a gritty way.

That scene of her hearing malfunction freaked me out so much, I'm still on pins and needles. If she really loses her ability or if they are really planning on making a third season without her then there's no way I'm watching that. I don't believe they have the courage to go with it simply because many viewers will boycott the drama if KJ isn't in it. I personally can't even imagine Voice without her, to me it's impossible but who knows what the hell is going on in the writer's or director's heads at this point.

The worst is happening :scream::bawling:

LHN has updated her insta with this a pic and a caption saying basically she's telling goodbye to her character and that she was happy to have the opportunity to play her. 

 

I will erase this second season of my mind for good and stay with her in s1 when she avenged her father and was left to leave happily with her team. 

 

That was the worst plot twist ever in any drama/show ever made.

There's no words  to express my disappointment...

@titania1000 No f***ing way!!! :scream: Can't it just mean they've finished filming for this season? Oh I hope it's just that, there's no way they'll kill her. I have no words :dizzy: If it's true, I'm gonna hate this season for eternity.

It's a rough translation (made by Google): i could be wrong  and that might only her way to mark the end of the filming.

 

But i get the strong vibe that she won't come back for s3. People thanked her in the comments for her two years as Kwon Joo.

Let's be real, her character development was very bad: she's taking less and less place in the drama and getting overshadowed by Kang Woo in every thing, even profiling.        

 

I hope that she won't die. Whatever happens, let her leave and join Jin Hyuk and his son in America and the 3 of them be happy together.  

 

Edit: it's official: even OCN insta is saying goodbye!

 

I think it's her last episode, which means she will probably be killed! 

She got many warnings at the start of the season.... 

 

I'm SO mad, SO mad at the writer.......

  and @natekolet calm down, she may be just mean saying her goodbye to her character in this season, even if season 3 is shooting after season 2 it will not be aired now so it may be just her saying goodbye to this season like in the normal way 

okay i fear the scene when she loses her hearing too but no way if they really get pd from season 1 out, jh OUT then after that KJ out do they really think this drama will survive the rating these weeks even making season 3 in danger of stopping

i am so much trying to be positive here, trying to see everything in good eyes but they mess the original characters so much that i am going to really do what you say "I will erase this second season of my mind for good and stay with her in s1 when she avenged her father and was left to leave happily with her team" so i am really trying hard here they should make a little change in the last 3 ep's and in season 3 take a break voice team and make a major change it not a story that should be destroyed.

it has so much to give us and give them if they do it right

 agree the more they focus on that the more i am not believed that and even if kw is kosuke that never proof that he really helped his  father killing that girl, he ust feeling guilty maybe his father used him to get that girl and he didn't know what his father going to do , he just 10 years old maybe living in fear and not really know what he did, he choice another life after that so even they trying to make me think he a killer i choice to not trust that so maybe i am wrong maybe that the twist, maybe they will let that open ending without answer just letting us drawing with different thought till another season or maybe not . no matter what i give up trying to find the answer now i will watch the last 3 ep's to see what they going to do and after that face  my feeling about it 

 

 

okay my friends it time for the  game,  now we all  realize that we have three psycho killers now the masked man, the  crazy man from ep 8 and the woman from ep 9 wow three that they show us and there more hidden, 3 ep's till the end and no one even know about any one of the three  :confused: so who the killer that will be catch or even be found in this season :

1. the masked killer 

2. the woman 

3. the crazy man

4. all of them in miracle way  found and a new friend of the show in the next season, we don't need enough time to know each one story  that doesn't matter :confused:

5. no one of them let keep KW the only killer everyone know and  make everyone suffer till the  next season if that even going to happen too :pensive:

 

 

 let guess who going to survive from the killers to the next season ?????????? 

or should i asked which one of us the fans will survive after next week !!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone has his own opinion :)  As for me, Jin Uk ssi's acting is brilliant and the  further the better. 

Yes, this is exactly what KW was from the very beginning! Not any contrast with the start of the season.

Sorry for self-citation, but 

 

 

Quote

 

Yes, he looks calm and it scares.

When a person acts under the influence of emotions - his actions are clear, but when his mind is cold, he can go much further, because he clearly sees the situation. His own emotions do not dazzle him and he goes to his goal....

 

 ...DKW just knows how to use the feelings of a woman, showing that a man is ready to protect her. And she is already following him, instead of directing him. He is already leading, but she is only following his goal.

 

It seems to me, that KKJ can no longer cope with him, he is being out of control and does it with a cold mind and, possibly, a cold heart.

 

 

 

 

Yes, he used her and GTT and he never wanted to be the part of GTT and he never hid it! On the contrary, he said it to their faces and his behavior was the same. He is excellent cop and he knows his job well and can do it well but it doesn't mean that he thinks as others think. 

Chief Na explained it very well. And KW himself said to KKJ that other cops aren't the same as she! He literally warned her and if she preferred to believe in better - this is her problem and her fault. 

KW is the same person as he was in the first eps, simply then he had less possibilities and more control above him from the side of KKJ. But step by step he won their trust and gained more power. Lee Jin Uk showed and shows it excellent. It isn't a X-mas story abt sinner who become a better person because of kindness of other persons. KW has his own goals and his own intentions and his own notion of good and evil .

Man, who threaten KKJ in the jail (do you remember his eyes?), couldn't turn into a teddy bear just because KKJ sent him a lunch. 

(Personally me, I don't want V3 with Lee Jin Uk - no matter with LHN or without.  I think it's time to put the point. I hope he isn't going to be shot in V3).

There's an Update: she changed the captions, probably because people freaked out and said she will come back next week. 

So nobody is dying for now. 

 

But for the rest i don't know: i still think she won't come back or maybe s3 is not happening after all...

Legally a child at this age can't be considered as a criminal and sentenced, even when they kill. It's against international laws.  So nothing could prove what he really did or not.

It's very rare to see  children of this age involved  in those kind of crimes but it's not impossible.

 

The biggest question is for me how BANG Je Soo did manage to get his hands on the ear?

 

There's too many questions! What i get from the different articles and bits of translation here and here is that we'll get the answers in today's episode.

Well, the OCN post just praising Lee Hana for always smiling and become their vitamin during shooting, and said that tonight they will be back will be back for episode 10, Director Kang will be waiting for everyone. While in Lee Hana instagram, she was just saying goodbye to Kang Kwon Joo for this season though. Nothing to be freaked out though. *scratching my chin*

I panicked and translated the wrong post indeed! 

Thanks for the correction! 

 

Translation on google help to get a sense of an article. Sometimes it's close, sometimes it's not.

 

This drama is too much stress for my nerves! :sweat_smile: 

 

Edit

This fear has been provoked by the plot essentially: Kwon joo has been warned about the danger to take on this mission at the start for the drama and the story seems to emphasize this point since the killer could be one of her closest colleague.

@titania1000 and @ellelyana88 thanks for the update i am okay now, i already not liking so many killers, no answer, no progress in finding them and making KW more the only killer everyone see 

so i guess making  shown Kj have problem with her hearing ability then the talking about her death or out of another season, and to be honest i think they may be even canceled season 3 with this rating everything make me at my limit 

normally i will just drop a drama if it get messed or if that not my liking or at least watch it but stopped writing about it since i don't like being the negative one and destroy the fun for people who liked it . but i liked season 1 so much, i like kj too, i like idea of the season 2 too and kw character that why i am still trying to hope for  a better chance even with everything happen 

so i think i am really not clam after all :joy:

[RANDOM RANT]

 

I have been reading comments on the sites that uploaded the drama. It is frustrating when people keep commenting that season 1 is better than season 2. You can't really compare them because each season deals with different type of psychopath and story theme. In season 1, they addressed the theme of power over the weak, where you can see from each cases they dealt with has something to do with those with more "power" (strength, money, age etc) use it to torture the weak. From the first case of Bok Nim where the hammer symbolized strength, Aram being abused by the adult (as was his adopted mother), the bus driver's insurance case and even the Granny case too. Mo Tae Gu was indeed the perfect example of psychopath who does not only enjoy showing off his strength to the weak, but also has power and money to cover up his murders. But, gosh, people have to move pass that and focus on what this season is about. (And Mo Tae Gu is dead. There's no way he will rise again from his grave.)

 

As for this season, the theme is to listen in every sense you have, apart from addressing the hate crime that is increasing in our society nowadays. IMO, there is subtle message episode 9 trying to convey from the scene where Director Kang suddenly lost her hearing and can't hear anything. It was like warning her to not only hear from one side, but try to listen from every side (thus, the concept of bugging everywhere means). Since receiving the images of Kang Woo from the psychopath, she has been too focused on hearing things that lead her into being suspicious of Kang Woo (and that clouded her judgement in considering that the psychopath is setting them up against each other). That's why, the psychopath has been mocking her (talking to himself) what she would do if she heard other grave truth if she is that surprised already in the past episode. (I may have over-analyzing this scene though. Hahaha! Freaked out for a couple minutes when she can't hear a thing!).

 

A lot of people have been commenting about how absurd that the psychopath has been wire-tapping the whole police station and listening to their conversations and tactics. Well, He is a cop himself, he's more than capable to bug the whole station and bypass the police radio frequency. Those certificates lining up on the wall in the psychopath's house is an indication that this time they are dealing with a psychopath with high intelligence and enjoy manipulating others' hate and anger as his "murder weapon". The story will goes on how the team (especially KW and KJ) unravel and "decipher" the psychopath's scheme.

 

As for Kang Woo, it is highly likely he developed PTSD due to the shock he experienced from the murder of his childhood friend Miho and being called the murderer's son (remember his words in episode 3 in Hee Joo case), and developed RAS from his experience on the boat three years ago. Watching the imaginary conversation between the psychopath and his mom this episode makes me wonder whether the real murderer of Miho was actually his mom based on her words "I am proud of you. Thanks to you, that person will come save me." I wonder if in the past, Kang Woo's dad admitted to the Miho's murder to her rescue. The psychopath have Miho's ear among his collection, probably "inherited" it from his mom (aside from his mental disorder). So, the one who inherited multiple personality disorder (as per explained by the doctor) from their parent is actually Kwon Yul character, not really Kang Woo.

 

My point is, this season need to be seen in different angle from season 1, and take note of the story development, although I must also admit that there were less thrills and jump-off-seat scene than last season (and less action scene too). Probably they want to emphasize the method of dealing with hate crime is to talk to them out of it (as they keep emphasizing Kang Woo words when dealing with suspect or victim), rather than using force like season 1. "If you kill him here, Hee Joo will become a murderer's daughter. You don't know how that feels like". "What a joke. Who can forgive you when the family hasn't?" and his other lines.

Well, just my 2 cents. Pardon my bad English  T__T

@ellelyana88 Wow, that was an awesome post, you should write more. :star: I haven't even thought of the possibility that the killer's mom could be involved in all of this. Interesting, that would be a great twist since she did seems quite em... peculiar. As for KJ being unable to hear, I thought that it might have to do with the huge amount of stress she's been under. Hopefully, that's the case and nothing more serious.

@nateko I usually a silent reader. Only write once in awhile on topic / drama that really caught my attention. LOL! 

 

I agree that the amount of stress she's dealing with caused her temporary "deaf".  What I wrote just now was  what I think about the implicit / subtle meaning of that scene connected to this season. :flushed:
