[Drama 2018] Today’s Detective/ The Ghost Detective 오늘의 탐정

Recommended Posts

i just finished watching ep 4.

ok, Da-il was buried far away from the city lol it's actually amazing that he remembers where he was buried.

but still they couldn't find the body, so there is a hope that he might have gotten rescued and is alive.

BUT I THINK HE'S ACTUALLY DEAD by looking at how his food needs to be given in a death memorial ritual food way.

but but can i just hope? :tears:

i feel so much for Sang-sub, the detective ajussi who cries after finding out that Da-il is dead. :tears:

Da-il and Yeo-wool's chemistry is so great! i really love the way Da-il looks worriedly at Yeo-wool at her apartment door. :wub: the apartment door interaction scene was so heartwarming and their chemistry has skyrocketed!

 

oh wait, the guy that Yeo-wool meets in the cafe, isn't he the caretaker of the woman in red dress?

also, Yeo-wool looks like she recognizes the guy at the cafe.

anyway, the woman in red dress is mad at Da-il for interfering, so she decides to kill everyone he loves.

looking at the next ep trailer, her new target is Sang-sub, the detective ajussi.

hopefully, Da-il will quickly learn to use his superpower to save the ajussi.

I finished watching episode 4

1.the women in red dress is crazy I think her life as human was terrible and after that she has to live a lonely life as a wondering  ghost which can't leave or stay but she totally crazy she taken this game to not feeling bored on her life as a ghost and she  go so far , she now  want Da-il as target  to test if he stay the same when he becomes lonely and fUll of hate like her ( she creepy)

 

2.I am fearing that da-il can't have the same power like that Women, her power from hate and controlling human being who fall for her, da-il power maybe be limted  to when he so anger or in hate too as long as he not evil soul he will have limted power or maybe I am wrong I will wait to see 

 

3.I like the scene between da-il and Yw so much  they building a nice and sad bond between  them , and judging from the the two OST  this drama will have love line between this two a sad one that will end if Da-il will be death for real, but they keep his body not founding so they play without giving us answer  he maybe a live or maybe he the unidentified body that was shown in ep 2 but for now I will have hope 

 

4. The other detective made me sad with his reaction to da-ill death from the moment he found the necklace to the restaurant  crying,   it made me realise that it fact that  da-il is just a soul he only being seeing by Yw, it not okay it not funny that ajusshi  was the  normal one in this drama 

 

P.s. I liked OST 2 so much what a touching lyrics and beautiful voice and music

I really enjoyed yesterday's eps. It is a great combination of horror, fear, sorrow, joy & every other emotion....

 

Da Il is a ghost for now, so he remember where he was buried.... But the body wasn't there...!!!! Does it mean that we can have a little hope about him that he's somewhat survived in someplace...????!!!!! Poor hyung... I was about to cry when he cried at the restaurant... He didn't want to except that his friend is dead...!!!! Those emotions are so beautifully combined there..... :o

 

And looks like the lady in red suffered some injustice in her childhood.... She is really angry with people... But it was 1993 & how did she end up in the hospital...????? What's the reason for her to be like that...??!! She can't see people live happily... So she want to make their lives miserable... She can only attack people with weak, dark & guilty mind... Then she uses them against their will......

 

And speaking of Da Il & Yeo Wool...., They are so cute together.. :wub:.. Da Il is protecting her even thought he is a ghost...!!!!!! But will he fall in love with her...??!! Or will he let her to fall for him...??!! The lady in red told him that she's going to kill everyone who loves him......!!!!!! What a plot...??!! I really want them to fall in love... But the lady in red is just :angry:

 

And Daniel & Eun Bin's on screen chemistry is no joke.... They seems close to each other... Otherwise it's impossible to act with this much intense...!!!!! Now I am even more hooked to this drama..... Can't wait for the other eps......!!!!!!!!!! :heart:

Too many killings by the same woman.

I don't find this funny anymore and definitely not enjoying it. 

Why did choi Daniel pick this drama?  

His agency should know how to strike big deals or he better change agency.  And kbs is not helping matters by airing creepy fantasy dramas back to back. Cos it will affect rating and rating means a lot to them.

Next time if he want to do a detective drama, he should go to jtbc or tvn cos they will make sure the writing appeals to viewers and at the same time don't lose the originality.  Or better still go into movies. It gives more money than dramas if you know ur onions and can easily catapult him to international fame.

Also popular leading ladies do help a lot cos some may want to watch the drama cos of the leading ladies. 

My opinion though.

My guess:  Evil Doctor is keeping Red Woman in her coma; probably also in possession of DI's body(if he is hanging onto life by a thread)/corpse (if he isn't).

 

I'm still watching for Choi Daniel (me, still pouting about the whole "Dead' thing, of course) and taking the rest of it with a a grain of salt.....or maybe Pepto Bismol.  (I was eating my supper when the bloody cake scene came along; that was Not a good thing.)  The story has potential, and I am just having Bad Attitude.  <_<

OMG... @darr.......... Are you an Indian...?? Your name totally goes with the plot here.. B'cause "Darr" is "Fear" in hindi.... right????!! :D..  I agree 100% with your opinion... Daniel always picked sweet rom-coms... But this is faraway...!!!! :o And KBS2 isn't known as horror genre channel either, is it...??!!! But I am truly enjoying the outcome.... It looks like the drama already has a lot of local & international fame despite the horror stuff..!!! People really like this kind of genre now.... Even if you want to drop this drama, there is some strange vibe of making you hooked even more to it.... I think that is the uniqueness of this drama....!!!! So, please don't drop it... This will be a new experience for us & for Daniel himself..!!!!! I am already touched with the plot... The lady in red doesn't like anyone being happy...!!!!!! She is so cruel........ Want to know more about her. Looks like she & Da Il have some unfinished business in the past.....

I believe that he can't use his hand because the hand was the only member that was not buried. Notice that when he tries to open the doors or touch something, it is his right hand and it was his right hand that was coming out from the soil. On the other hand, his head could touch the door.

It is still possible that Dae Il is not dead but like the lady in red living in a comatose state. The red lady uses fear and guilt in order to push people to commit suicide. The question is: did her father really commit suicide? I mean, in the scene she was just staring at his body. So maybe that's her version of the story. It looks like the story told to the lady in red is somehow related to her story: evil spirit that punished the person that freed him. On the other hand, he granted the person three wishes. So maybe the lady in red has been granted three wishes: like f. ex. as a spirit, she can live forever and has immense power.

WOAH..!! Your analysis is great...!!!!!!! It's his right hand coming out of the mud & he can't touch anything with it... Maybe if he uses his other hand... I don't know.. But he can feel the pain, sit on chair & bed etc... He surely has some connection with the human world... And also how come his body disappeared from the solid.????!! He is somewhere there for sure....!!!

OK. Totally shocked to see her here.....pulling off dragonfly wings. Since I am seeing her all cute and spunky in another currently airing drama.

I was so surprised that how come she be sweet & evil at the same time...??!! Very talented little girl.... :)

 

And Lee Ji Ah is perfect for the  lady in red character... She has a strange vibe on her face that totally fits in to the character...!!!!!! :flushed:  Love all the characters in the show.....!!!!

credit to @Dramanoona This person might play a role more important than it seems. Like I had pointed it out, we never saw the face of the person burying Dae Il. So maybe he might be the one responsible.

  • Then don't you find it weird that he met YW by coincidence and even ruined her drink by accident? I have the impression that he could have wanted this meeting, however he can not reveal his true identity or better said the real purpose of their meeting. 
  • Right now, they are focusing on the identity of the lady in red. But what if the spirit in the form of the lady in red is in fact the evil spirit that she freed from the pot? Maybe by reading the story, the man wanted to awaken the soul of this woman that is trapped by the evil spirit. We saw a tear in her eye... so she definitely felt something else than anger and evil. In other words, she could have recognized herself but is unable to free herself from that spirit. This explains why the evil spirit appears in the same form. The spirit is so strong that the woman can not die.
  • So what if the person who buried Dae Il wanted him to become a ghost in order to catch that evil spirit as he is well aware that no human would ever be able to catch him? But for that, he needed to do a ceremony: bury him and then hide the body elsewhere (again at a hospital in a coma). Therefore this man above could be someone who knows more than he appears to be. 

This leads me to this theory: When they discover her identity, they realize somehow that by killing her won't solve the problem? Notice that the spirit is so powerful that it can possess anyone...

I had to read the pot part over & over again to understand your theory @bebebisous33....!!!!! I really missed that part...

And how can a 12 years old girl have 3 vows here...?????!!!!! It indicates that this 12 years old girl has all the 3 vows on her hand... So what are those...???!! Being 12 yrs old, being in a deep sleep & being an evil spirit.. Or is it just make people possessed, make people do crimes & make people commit suicide....???!! I am so curious to know this girl's true intention.... I thought it was the past that she was a girl in her childhood... But is it possible that the 3 of little girl, the woman in hospital & the evil red lady exist at the same time...??!! I don't know about the little girl here, but it looks like the lady in red is stopping the lady in hospital from being cured.... And if they can destroy the lady in red, then everything will get back to normal itself... And Da Il, Yeo Wool & hyung don't know that the lady in red is not only a spirit but also she is in the hospital at the same time... WOW!! So many things to know here....!!!!! Now. waiting........!!!!

well, the little girl is no longer a little girl since the incident seems to happen in 1993.

but there could be a chance that she's not the woman in red dress,

though i think she is.

I'm joining this thread!

 

It's interesting that the woman in bed (red) shed a tear. Perhaps the horrible things she does to people is because she can't do that to herself. She would rather die than  living that way, attached to a life support and become a burden.

 

I'd like to think there are other forces at play. Why Da-Il becomes a ghost? Is it because of his Mother's sacrifice (a la Harry Potter)? The woman in red had promised (for what it's worth...) not to harm Da-Il but she breaks that promise...  So his soul survives. And Yi-Rang perhaps also has put protection for Yeo-Wool just in case.. 

 

Why Da-Il can't open/cross doors... this reminds me of the vampires code in True Blood and also Let The Right One In (Let Me In is the US remake). The owner of the house must issue invitation or explicitly let them in (just like that scene with food). Perhaps there's similar rule here. He can't just barge in. Or... it's an "experience" thing, he's fresh out of grave and unexperienced in ghosting.

 

I don't know... but I like being confused here.

The story of the pot is actually quite sad as it chronicles how hope can become despair and turn into menace.

It appears that the little girl stayed in the house/room with the decomposing body of her father and sibling. Why didn't she call for help or run away? Perhaps it's a case of learned helplessness when you start to believe that nothing you do will change the situation.

With evil, it attacks a weakened mind - and (following Guest), once you have a weakness, it allows to evil to permeate your thoughts and you act out these evil thoughts.

 

I am quite enjoying this drama. WIth the supernatural theme, you have to suspend some belief. However, the themes are still about what was mentioned before. GUILT.FEAR. Your deepest thoughts manifesting itself into reality.

@bebebisous33, your speculations are interesting. I just finished watching the episode and it does look like the doctor willfully spilt that drink on YW. The whole portrayal and camera work in that scene says this meeting or moment is important. Things are getting more interesting.

 

I find it a little frustrating that our investigation team is so helpless though. Their investigation skills are what they should be but in terms of facing the lady in red, both YW and Da II fear her. They have no way to defend themselves. For instance, in most supernatural tv shows that I’ve watched there is often something that is a weak spot for ghosts, vampires, werewolves, etc. Da II and YW can only get lucky every time because what the lady in red whispers still obviously affect them even though they know her game. So the show feels a little too one sided in this aspect. 

 

The coroner lady seems to have guts. I wonder if she would be afraid of the lady in red too. They have some people in supernatural shows that say they fear the living more than the dead. I wonder if she falls into that category.

Choi Daniel Surprises “The Ghost Detective” Staff With Food Truck

by yshin

The staff of “The Ghost Detective” are receiving a lot of love from Choi Daniel!

On September 14, Choi Daniel’s agency J,WIDE-Company posted on its official Instagram page, “He’s buying, he’s buying, actor Choi Daniel is buying. Delicious snacks that have arrived on set of ‘The Ghost Detective.’ We enjoyed the food thanks to the chef.”

The post included an image of Choi Daniel standing in front of the food truck with a bright smile on his face. He rests a hand on the chef’s shoulder, expressing his gratitude for the food. The sign on the truck reads, “Thank you to all the production staff, seniors, and my colleagues.

You are right... Our investigation team is so helpless b'cause our hero can't touch anything or do things his own. But they have a big advantage... Now, Da Il can feel the presence of the lady in red... He can feel her. He can hear her & he can see her. I think it will be a strength to them, b'cause unawareness is too dangerous in the case of the lady in red... At least now he can know her next target....!!! It will be his hyung next week...!!! :o.

 

As you said, things are getting more interested & I am getting more addicted...!! It is said that girls shouldn't watch these kind of dramas... But I can't help it...!! Looking forward to know more about our leads...!! How will it be if they fall in love...??!! :heart:
