I finished the second episode this morning when the sun was up. :D It’s so creepy and scary and yet so good. I wonder how they’ll even destroy Park Il Do when he’s so powerful.

I agree. I just saw the first episode and this one's scarier. 

Haa, and I want to try this.

When I have ran away from ghost detective. I will pass. Why scary dramas these days?

ep2 hospital scene makes me wonder about Hwa-phyung.

the possessed: [to Park il-do] (Hywa-phyung)He's peeping us. He reacts to us. He can feel it when we slash (victims)dogs and pigs.

Hwa-phyung: what are you doing? (who are you talking to?)

Possessed: [to Hwa-phyung] Don't you also get excited as well? I'm right, aren't I? (Victims' blood)That blood, you also like it, right?

HP: Just tell me where the daughter is.

-

Possessed: [to Park il-do] Shall I kill (Yoon)him?

Possessed: [to Yoon] Everyone who stays near him(?) dies. He(?) is just like us. [the scene changes to Hwa-phyung]

the exorcism hospital scene seems like talking about Hwa-phyung.

 

Hwa-phyung has inborn strong supernatural power, but he can hardly control it and it makes him easy target. that's why he once got possessed by Big Ghost (park il-do), and even now, he cannot control when he sees or imitates a possessed. it just happens.

This is why male shaman keeps telling Hwa-phyung to do "내림굿," which is becoming a shaman by accepting to be in the service of certain god. if you do "내림굿," then you are officially a shaman, and your god protects you from getting possessed by evil ghosts and you also get ability from your god to exorcise evil ghosts. but of course, there seems to be different levels in gods, and male shaman's god is weaker than Christ and Buddha.

Oh!!! I just finished watching the last two episodes, admitting that it was an interesting story. Surprised by the skill of the playwright. It made me scare, barely breathing. Korea's religious rituals look magical. The rituals of exorcising ghosts are horrible, horrifying to make me creepy. OCN does not disappoint me, most of them have a strange drama to watch always. For this channel. Oh, I can not wait to.:thumbsup:

I was drawn in by Kim Dong Wook (after watching him in Along with the Gods), then I recognised Jung Eun Chae from Dr Frost (I enjoyed that one) and finally I had to think hard about Kim Jae Wook (can't get him off my mind as the Voice killer) - it's like a perfect blend of actors who have worked on dramas or movies about supernatural, psychotic killers.

 

I may be creeped out but I hope that they don't self censor and go full blast with the whole demon angle. I will definitely continue watching this, even if it's between my fingers.

I have to applaud this actor who acts as the possessed man. Utterly freaked out when he starts to speak in that high pitched other worldly voice and stares at you with his good eye.

I want a love triangle between the three leads, the priest is very sexy,  I know it's not sure that we'll get romance but who knows
 

But is it allowed for a Catholic priest to be in a relationship? I would like that too and hope that kjw will get the girl. But Hwapyong is the chosen one aka protagonist and also the link between everything maybe the detective and hwapyong will be together by the end.

I have a feeling that this drama will be romance-free.

 

I think with the dark theme, if the PD threw in a romantic scene, it will be too jarring.

In Voice, there was zero romance between the two leads.

I am quite happy if they keep the romance out of this one. I just hope that they (the three leads)  reconcile to the fact that they share a tragic past together and will have to work together to defeat Sohn.

 

PS. Catholic priests are not allowed to marry after they are ordained. I think that they have a vow of celibacy.

YES, the priests are not allowed to marry, when I spoke about romance, I tell myself that maybe it will not be too present, maybe a little for example the fact of being there for the other, because after there are two men and a woman.
In any case this drama is already top as it is

Yep, I agree, romance will take away the intensity and suspense of the story. This is fantasy/supernatural/horror drama and I am happy with that because that is what I signed up for. I did not decide to watch this drama for romance. There are plenty of romance dramas to choose from and I would watch those for a dose of romance. No romance in this drama is good.Love what you stated, the three with shared history to fight and defeat Sohn.

The best thing that happened while watching this drama is with headphones on. Such a feast.  I am more an auditory person so the sound effects on this show give me more chills than visuals. 

 

Me on episode 1

Posting this separately :

 

Some observations of my overthinking on visuals :P

 

1. The number 12 on Hwa Pyung 's can signify Biblical interpretations . In the Bible , there are the so called "The 12 Prophets" or "Minor Prophets" found in the book of Hebrews .

 

DnV9p10U4AAE-Cs.jpg

 

2.  Hwa Pyung's manifestation of his 'premonitions' were through dreams , most likely he is half-asleep when he sees  Sohn  . [Similar  to Joseph The Dreamer ] DnWLuUxU4AYUF-i.jpg

 

Some info I found: The ritual mention was /Byeolsingut /   . I am not sure what among those enumarated in this website the ritual was used in the drama. But I posted the entire text anyway for those who want to read further. 손theguest_1회_DTR_FHD_0000367700ms.png

Spoiler

Byeolsingut is a communal ritual held every three, five, or ten years to pray for peace and prosperity to the village tutelary spirit.

Such rituals are also called pungeoje (big catch ritual) on the coastal regions and byeolsinje in inland regions. Byeolsingut from Hahoe village in North Gyeongsang Province, Eunsan in South Chungcheong, and Oti in North Chungcheong are the biggest among those held in inland regions, while rituals from the eastern and southern coasts are also widely recognized.

Hahoe Village Byeolsingut from Andong, North Gyeongsang Province, is held from the first day of the first lunar month to the fifteenth, traditionally carried out by common people. Hahoe is a single-lineage village of the Pungsan clan of the Ryu family, the hometown of Ryu Seong-ryong, a revered court official of the Joseon dynasty. At Hahoe, the annual village rituals are called dongje (village tutelary ritual) or jesa (memorial ritual), while byeolsingut is held every five or ten years, upon the reception of an oracle. Hahoe Byeolsingut includes a mask dance performance, which was designated by the government in 1980 as Important Intangible Cultural Heritage, and the masks used in the performance were designated as National Treasure in 1964.

Eunsan Byeolsinje is a communal rite from Buyeo, South Chungcheong, which comprises both the Confucian memorial service and the shamanic ritual. It is an annual event, with the grand ceremony (daeje) held every three years on the first or second lunar month.

Oti Byeolsinje from Jecheon in North Chungcheong was designated by the provincial government in 2001 as Intangible Cultural Heritage. It is a village ritual comprising a mountain god ritual (sansinje) and village guardian deity ritual (seonangje): The former is a quiet and solemn Confucian memorial rite with only male ritual officials taking part, without the accompaniment of farmers’ music, while the latter is more open, the divine intent confirmed directly through the sacred pole seonangdae, and with elaborate festivities that include music. The mountain god ritual is held annually, while the ritual for the village guardian deity is included in the program every other year.

Eastern Coast Byeolsingut is a regular village ritual designated in 1985 as Important Intangible Cultural Heritage. The ritual is organized by a hereditary shaman group and is observed all along the eastern coast, from the northern end of Gangwon Province to the Busan area on the southern coast. The ceremony begins by carrying the village guardian deity from its shrine to the ritual venue and tying the sacred pole (sindae), which embodies the deity, on a column of the shaman’s ritual shrine, after which the shamanic ritual can start. The shamanic music of the eastern coast is performed only with percussion instruments, including janggu (hourglass drum), jing (gong) and kkwaenggwari (small gong), among which the hourglass drum is featured most prominently, performed generally by the husband of the officiating shaman.

Southern Coast Byeolsingut, designated in 1987 as Important Intangible Cultural Heritage, is observed annually in coastal and island villages around Geoje and Tongyeong between the first and fifteenth days of the first lunar month. The ritual shares characteristics of the shamanic rites of both the Gyeongsang and Jeolla provinces.

Park Il Do is the spirit the characters refer to when they talk about Sohn (hand). It is the guest. Sohn (손)  literally means hand, but it can also mean guest or wandering evil spirit. Park Il Do possessed HP and then Father Choi Sung-Hyun, whom Yoon has been looking around for. It controls weaker spirits, and together they have been possessing people for 20 years (the cold cases), like Kim and the woman by the beach.
