Awesome.

Intense.

 

That exorcism scene. You would feel the emotions of the Three in that room with the possessed woman (Can we call them the Trinity - as they seem to symbolise the holy trinity?)

 

And my Radar of Suspicion is blaring...

Is it me or can you spot the (slight) smirk?

And you can see that Father Yang realised he might have said more than he intended as he lowered the cup.

 

EDIT: Ahn Nae Sang is an excellent actor so I think that the nuances he is displaying are of his character. @mrsj3n

Wow.. episode 5 and 6 are awesome!!

 

It gave me the chills, the suspense, the intense and yet it managed to let me laugh a little and also managed to pull my emotional heart strings and made me cried for the poor woman and her boyfriend.

What a combo!!!!

 

It touched on adult bullying which I feel is very real in this world too.

 

That exorcism was really hard to watch but I thought props should be given to everyone including the poor woman.

 

I don't know why people are flaming the female lead. I thought she was doing alright as the detective. 

She may has an innocent and pretty face, but circumstances can push anyone to be anything.

 

Not all female detective should be bulky, tan, or have bushy eyebrows you know.

She wasn't dolled up for the role anyway so I find her believable!

No! I thought I saw it too! 

And I was wondering to myself if this is the actor usual acting face or this is a creepy scary smirk that is telling us "you don't know what you are getting into"!

 

Sigh... Now that I have started this... I have to bear with the agony of waiting for another week to watch the latest episode! 

 

@Dramanoona thanks! I only know him when I watched Misty and his expression always disturbs me for the rest of the drama that has him as I can never know if he is playing good or bad. My bad!

 

However... I think everything is connected to the Sharing Hands.

 

I wonder the big bad will be a male or female this time.

So now, the three are working together. HP has clairvoyant abilities to see or read who or what the possessed victim intends to do and in this episode he goes into a trance and starts whistling a tune. It was good that Mateo was with him and realized what was happening and got him out of his trance to ask HP what he saw. They then tell Detective Kang who at that moment started to trust in HP's dire predictions and follows his lead to find the possesed victim. It happened twice when they were at the police station and when HP was driving on their way to join Detective Kang, HP starts whistling and in a trance.  He needs to have the shaman or Mateo or even Detective Kang with him when he gets into a trance while tracking down the posessed person especially when he is driving or doing something where he could get hurt. It is interesting that his grandfather can also sense when HP goes into a trance and maybe  sees what HP can see. Detective Kang is now calmed down and not as brash. Because of the confrontation between the three of them and because she has witnessed herself the behavior of those possesed she now trusts in HP's instincts and directions. Yoon Hee whose boyfriend was bullied and hazed at work died because of the bullying. It is interesting also that the victims of abuse and surviving relatives or friends of those victims of bullying and abuse were easy preys of PID because they were emotionally and psychologically depleted and can't protect themselves? 

 

As for priest Yang, when Mateo tells him that he hears things or what will be considered by others as "auditory hallucinations" Priest Yang says that he left exorcism, because he also had same experiences. When chasing the devil, the chaser becomes despirited so to speak, the spirit becomes tainted and weak, he says. That is why he gave up the fight and became alcoholic. He tells Mateo that he tried to discourage his brother and now tries to discourage Mateo who is more determined than ever to find PID revive the memories of his brother whom Mateo describes as a brother who loved him and protected him and save others from becoming victims. I think the Sharing Hands volunteer organization is being used by PID for his own purposes and Priest Yang is being manipulated by PID. Just my take.

 

At the ending of the exorcism of Yoon Hee, Detective Kang wants to join them in tracking PID whathever he/she is and Mateo who is concerned that she will get hurt discouraged her and does not want her in the team. HP however does. But Detective Kang for the sake of stopping PID and protecting the citizens is joining the team. No matter what the loner Mateo says she is determined more than ever especially when she found out that the skeletal remains found in the forest in their hometown by HP and the shaman  belongs to the missing girl who was the last case her mother was working on. Her mother had the belongings of that girl and the notebook/findings on the case written by her mother. No way will she stop now. I like the change in Detective Kang's perspective. In the end, I think Mateo will realize that he needs both the psychic HP and his shaman friend, and Detective Kang's help to defeat PID. Mateo aside from cleaning his brother's posthumous reputation and memories will also want to save his brother's mentor Priest Yang. 

 

I am liking Detective Kang very much in this episode.

 

I agree about Ahn Nae Sang, he is a great actor and one of my favorites.

Guest aoikarin

I've never been this excited watching a thriller and suspense kdrama this year. For me, Hand: The Guest, the show is fantastic! The trio's chemistry is super Daebak!! I love each of them, their interactions and their kick richard simmons actions trying to catch Park Il Do the villain. They really remind me of my all the time fantasy heroes, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger fighting against the dark witches and the dark lord, Voldermort. The ability of Hwa Pyung (HP) reminds me of Harry Potter's ability to connect his mind with the villains. The hot-blooded, intuitive, beautiful Gil Young reminds me hot blooded, smart, beautiful Hermione. The tall, handsome, cynical and loner Choi Yoon (Mateo) reminds me tall, red head, cynical Ron who is Hp's trusty bestie. I'm currently watching #Hand:The Guest, #Ghost Detective, and #LovelyHorribly and I love The Guest the best so far. 

 

I don't know whether the show will add romance among our 3 leads..eventhough there is, I don't think it will be shown subtle in the show. However after watching ep 5 and 6,  I saw intense unspoken gaze bantering between Choi Yoon and Gil Young. I saw Choi Yoon's eyes who determine to assure Gil Young's safety. He maybe a cold Priest.. But I swear, I think he will protect Kang Gil Young with his life since he thought he owned her mom his own life. And I think Gil Young will do the same to him as she thinks Choi Yoon is the one who her mom save with her life. While, there's a possibility that HP and GY will end up together at the end of the show since I saw hints of marriage issue has been mentioned for both in ep. 6. 

 

Yes, I watched the show in the evening and watch each episode at least two times using my earphone. The bgm and eerie sounds intensify the show... more thriller and suspense. I love it!

 

Off topic : I love Ghost detective as well especially for its romance department.. But for the suspense compared to The Guest, Ghost Detective is so much lighter.

I would love to watch any BTS of the exorcism scenes. They must be intense.

So far, the exorcism of the office lady is the most intense and I freaked out when black liquid/blood? flowed out from beneath her.

 

Question:

If now Mateo is not able to perform exorcisms sanctioned by the church and decides to go rogue, will it have an effect on his ability to exorcise? I felt a portent of doom when he started hearing voices in the church straight after the other priest told him of the church's decision.

I suppose even if Mateo is still with the church, once he is on board with it, it is a one way ticket to hell.

I'm looking forward to be wrong and we have a happy ending for the 3 of them.

 

At the same time, I'm constantly worried for HP's grandfather and his Shaman friend. 

Every time HP encountered the possessed, they were being used to threaten HP and my poor heart can't take it very well.

Hello everyone! Thank God weekend is coming and now I finally able to share some of my thoughts on both episode 5 and 6. :lol: 

 

The meeting at the hometown:

The three of them finally disclose to each other who they were on that night 20 years ago in episode 5. It was a necessary scene that brings out the emotions and regrets lies beneath each of their heart. It was heart-breaking to see Detective Kang crying in regret while eating Jjajangmyeon for the first time in 20 years. More importantly, the revelation was essential to open up Detective Kang's perspective towards the existence of supernatural being which also took her mom's life and currently causing innocent people become a murderer; that it is no more a nonsense - of course it was then reinforced by what she saw during the exorcism at the basement. It is a turning point for Detective Kang and thus she is adamant about joining the cause to catch PID with HP in episode 6. Meanwhile for Mateo, he indeed felt guilty to Detective Kang because her mom died while saving him, hence the strong reaction opposing to Detective Kang's wish to join him and HP pursuit of PID. However, it seems that in his inner thought, Mateo kind of resent HP. I think that is why the demon keep poking that part of his thought to weaken his will. Nevertheless, it was such a relief that the meeting scene at their hometown was arranged at an adequate pace, not too draggy, not too fast (I kinda laugh at HP here, being beaten..getting the taste of Detective Kang's fist..twice at that.. LOL! :D). 

 

Priest Choi is dead (?):

Though I kinda disappointed that it came to this, apparently the forensics confirmed the dental record match that of Priest Choi's. So, he's dead then (though I still have my doubt if he really died, for now, I will just reserve that thought to myself..haha). I was kind of hoping there would be at least an encounter between him and Mateo, you know that kind of heart-wrenching scene between blood brothers settling their feud, and it could serve as the essence that strengthened Mateo's will as an exorcist priest if he perform exorcism on his brother because performing on your own family member makes the process harder by many folds. Alas, as HP said, even if the exorcism succeed, he would not be able to bear the guilt of killing his own family. But, about him being found buried in the ground, I wonder which of these two doing was it: Priest Yang or the Congresswoman? :ph34r:

 

Priest Yang:

I still hold my suspicion on him as the PID itself or at least PID's worshiper & the main host /vessel. :P  His gestures, actions, words, facial expressions (the smirk, the eye stare, the cheeks movement) all are suspicious to me. :phew:  It became more apparent in current two episodes. "I even saw an exorcist priest who worshiped the devil" - is he referring to himself? :rolleyes:

I have doubted him since he refused to exorcise HP. He only assessed the bruises, then he just dismissed what the grandfather said about HP did it to himself and did not even test HP reaction to any testing tools such as the cross - or perhaps he could have talk to the kid HP to assess further. Why is he being so avoidance?  Oh, anyway, this is just my take. I will apologize to him later at the end of the series if he turns out to be really innocent. LOL! For now, I don't think that Ahn Nae Sang only play a role as an elder priest who  is dispirited from his previous work as exorcist priest and to dissuade Mateo from getting involve with exorcism and PID. There must be something up in his sleeve. :P

 

The Congresswoman:

My goodness! I jumped from my seat when she suddenly shrieking at the Chief Police! I watched the episode with my earphones. Gosh~!  It was not scary, but man... my ears were ringing for like 10 minutes from her scream. :o  In my opinion, she's definitely connected to either the death of Priest Choi or the teenage girl, or could be both. However, I doubt that she's possessed by PID itself. To me, she's just another "pawn". 

Watching the preview at the end of episode 6, where Mateo said the congresswoman is not possessed as she does not respond to any test (and even praying at the altar), so either she has really serious psychological and anger management issue OR she is possessed by a more superior demon (but inferior than PID). Of course, with the increasing anticipation for the next exorcism scene, I am inclining to the latter. :rolleyes: As in my previous post, the intensity of exorcism depends on types and level of demon(s) possessing the human. I guess in next two episodes, Mateo really need to step up the exorcism intensity to banish the one possessing the congresswoman.

 

Workplace Bullying:

The worst scums and trashes. Period. (It's wrong to kill him, but I do feel that it serves him right to feel the pain from the bleeding. Heh! :phew:)

 

The Exorcism Scene:

This is the scene I am most excited about. Clearly, this time the episode addressed what does it looks like to deal with demon of higher level than the previous one, a much more crafty and pretentious at that. Just as I mentioned in my previous post, those who wish to help the exorcist must be strong-willed too, and firstly must be advised and notified to never  look at the possessed eyes and respond to their cries of pain and pleas for help. It plays around with persuasion and pretension. Else, you will be absorbed further into the manipulation game by the demon - Mateo almost falls for the trap when the woman cries in pain; Detective Kang was brought into her deepest regret about her mom. I really salute the possessed actress, an unknown face but great at acting as the possessed. And she runs really well~!  :w00t:

 

e2dcd790cf65af9b4db49a88d5c34c3a62036a34

 

 

After running so fast and all those physical exertion during exorcism, no wonder so much blood flowed out beneath her. At first i thought it was their hallucinations. But, it turns out the woman is pregnant and it was really a pool of blood~! I hope she does not miscarriage after all that :(  

I am expecting the next exorcism scene with the congresswoman would be doubled, if not tripled in intensity than the woman in episode 6 - well, looking at her crazy demeanor and filthy temper, it would be a joy ride to watch Mateo doing more intensive incantation in next two episodes. :w00t:   I wonder what act would the demon pull off next time (will it be reciting the incantation with Mateo and laughing at everyone without showing reaction in pain?), and am also looking forward to the possessed face of the congresswoman during the exorcism. :ph34r:

 

 

Final Thought:

I am assuming that, in order for them to really banish or vanquish PID, there would come the time when HP need to be possessed and using a method which I-don't-know-how-it-would-be, he would be the one who banish or better, vanquish it using his body as the vessel. Perhaps, by that time, he probably regain his ability to see the spirit. Maybe something will trigger him to accept his shaman bloodline - such as the death of his grandfather or maybe Yukgwang the shaman too - and do whatever the ceremony needed to be a shaman.  Who knows~? :phew:

MPs are crazy women. Do not understand how she would kill people in her foundation for what? What is the benefit of killing people? It made me want to know even more. Ep.7 felt that young bishop he could not do anything to her. Not sure Park il do it in her body?:o

I'm super glad to find this topic to talk about The guest. I've decided to watch it out of curiosity and completed 6 eps. Right now, all my suspicion goes to Priest Yang. Hwa Pyung said that the last person who met priest Choi would be the one Park Il Do possessed. The reason why PID can possess Priest Choi because he resent his parents for forcing him become a priest. After his parents, he also probably resent the Priest Yang, who led him into this way. So, after killing the parents, he would come to kill priest Yang for revenge. And Park Il Do possessed Priest Yang. And in that forest,  Park Il Do may saw the dead-lost girl soul, who is killed, and commanded her to possessed Park Joo Hong, the culprit.

 

Or maybe Priest Yang who noticed the strange behaviors from his assistant after leaving HP house, decided to come to Choi's house to help. But he came late after Choi killed all his family. He saw Choi and chased Choi into the forest for the sake of help but he didn't know the power of PID==> PID possessed him. And in that forest, priest Choi witnessed the accident/crime between Park Joo Hong and the girl Soen something... So he command her to possessed Park Joo Hong, the culprit.              

 

===> This explained the close relationship between Priest Yang and Park Joo Hong and Sharing Hands.

 

This is my two cent after finishing 6 eps. I'm really looking forward to the next eps. 1 week suddenly becomes so longggg

I don't think so, it is the strength of his mental, physical and pscychological make up, the strength of his beliefs and determination to carry out his mission that matters most. I think here with the help of his friends, he is more determined to do so. Whether the church sanction or not, he will hear voices. Temptation is always near

@ellelyana88The question here is what is being possessed the body vs the essence/mental and psychological makeup/the mind/spirit of the of the one being possessed? What is being possesed ...the body that dies or that which does not die? During the exorcism the possesor sometimes refer to "we" so who are the we? Does it comprise of the mind/spirits of those possesed? In that case can it be said that the body of Priest Choi died but where did his essence/mind/spirit whatever one wants to call it, go?

@RPM Thank you for the BTS!

Kudos to the actors/actresses who act as the possessed. I am impressed. Daebak.

 

Nice to see some levity in the BTS and how lightning, positioning and mood music can shape a terrifying moment during the exorcism.

I realise there are a lot of action scenes and it looks like Jung Eun Chae has a double for these scenes. (I had wondered if she learnt hapkido from one of her moves in an earlier episode.)

So I had some of my theories that I was too shy to say:sweatingbullets: but I decided to do so today! (Pardon my English)

 

Theory #1 

Hwa Pyung is or will be possessed

 

Based on the drama’s highlights, at the end of the video, a more demonic sounding (To what I hear again and again) Hwa Pyung’s normal Voice shouting  “We” before his voice changes into something demonic as he says “Are from the ocean(And something that I couldn’t make up) that audio and the image shown on screen does not match, so I suggest that the audio could be of later episodes (Which? I Don know). 

 

On Episode 6, I did notice that Hwa Pyung looks like he is hurting or something while Choi Yoon was exorcising the woman.(I could be wrong, but I just find it a little bit weird. Maybe I’m thinking too much)

 

Theory #2

Yuk Gwang’s Vision

 

On the second vision, I think we could say that, that would be Yuk Gwang’s possible ending? But then the question is who will kill him? I could say that based on the vision, we see a river/sea so that might means that he might get killed by someone who is possessed.Some how if my Theory #1 matches and that Hwa Pyung gets possessed could he be the one that will ultimately kill Yuk Gwang?

 

And another thing that I thought of is, the closest person around Yuk Gwang is only Hwa Pyung. What are the chances of this theory? I think it’s pretty high that it could be him, as I Don’t think Yuk Gwang is crazy enough to let strangers into the house. (Plus, The Possessed did say “Everyone around him will die, He is just like us.”)

 

 

Literally based on what I see, the genre mainly focus on the dark vibes of things, could Choi Yoon become dark as well after exorcising too many possessed people? And if Hwa Pyung gets possessed again, could the final fight be like a dark vs dark fight? (If so, it will be interesting)  haha but I will take it with a grain of salt, as drama’s always doesn’t work with my theories haha.
