[Current Drama 2019] Angel's Last Mission: Love 단, 하나의 사랑 - Wed & Thu @ 22:00 KST

Recommended Posts

Beneath the Mask

Beneath her tough exterior and bravado, Yeon Seo hides her weaknesses, doubts, vulnerability and fears, including self doubt and the relatable fear of failure which is why she refused to return to ballet - she is afraid she will no longer be the same, no longer perfect and other people will notice her weakness. Everyone only sees that tough facade, the rude princess, but Dan sees right through her. He sees the real her. He learned all her whims, likes and dislikes from the documents he received; however, what is more important, he is looking at her, really looking at her and that allows him to notice every single detail about her, even the slightest reaction or change of expression. The perfect example is when YS beats JKW with her cane when he arrives to her mansion - when you first watch that scene you admire her guts and fighting spirit, and even though Dan totally does too, it’s her trembling hand, her fear, which catches his attention the most in the dim lit room. When YS’s family arrives and she’s rude to them, he once again sees her hands clutching the chair in anxiety. Whether he is by YS’s side or watching her from afar, Dan is always learning new things about her.

It really does remind you of KJW who keeps getting all the information on YS and those around her, including videos and photos, but the difference between the two men is that JKW’s approach is very superficial, he only has the bare facts without knowing the context or learning anything about YS’s wants and needs. Whereas Dan is truly getting to know her, learning about all the facets of the paradox that is Lee Yeon Seo - this strong, tormented, proud and fragile woman.

It’s because Dan truly knows her that he’s able to help her heal. I truly love his approach as he makes her do stuff, instead of avoiding them as she used to. Be it their dance or their walking practice, he always takes her hand gently into his and walks the path with her until she is ready to face the challenge on her own. It’s the right combination of caring and tough love in order to make her self-sufficient so she can pick herself up but he is always there to catch her when she falls. I love how Dan’s first reaction is always rush to YS’s help and despite his “tough” approach he eventually turns into a total mother hen: let me go with you, let me put footstep stickers there for you, are you feeling ill, was it too straining… or the fact that he spends the night on a cold floor in front of her door, guarding her bedroom like a loyal puppy. Seriously, he is always the softest with her. You know, we are still at the beginning of the story and Dan can’t help himself but worry about her, there is no way he can leave her and go to heaven because he’ll be constantly wondering whether she had her chamomile tea.

Love this ending quote :wub:  both are so adorable .  

JKW is only interested in ballet and his past obsession but all Dan's interest is Yeon-Seo which he saw and understood her in every details (even in some details that she didn't even realize herself).  

 

I love them so much that when I watched rerun I couldn't stand watching YS with JKW, I just skip to Dan-Yeon parts.  :P

 

 

And I really love this, even though it's only Ms. Jung's imagination.  :kiss_wink:

Dan and YS are perfect for each others! Kudos to writer!! Even if it's too early predict the finale i bet on this couple. Maybe this mission is about Dan who will found the true love and remain on the Earth as human being without power but with his love!!

@briseis

I always love your deep thoughts and evaluations on this drama! You are so talented! Can't wait to read more from you! My heart feels touched and I get a bit teary just reading your posts! :wub:

 

Btw, I assume this scene is after the kiss. I think KD left LYS since it started to rain or his wings will appear. Our LYS looks very sad. JKW is with her but tries to comfort her. She immediately turns away. This man needs to leave her alone whether or not she is his past lover. <_<

 

*Oh lawd, I spoke too soon about having angst! KD, please don't hurt LYS for a long period of time. My heart is too fragile and can break any second!* :tears:

Yes, I agree. If my theory is right and JKW's lover died 15 years ago then YS is her doppelganger. The way I see it JKW is basically pushing YS to live the life Matilde couldn't, as her substitude of sorts. Judging from his obsession with perfection in ballet, he would push her to a point where she would have to live only for ballet without any regard to what YS wants or needs while Dan cares about what the person that YS, about what is best for her.

 

You know I've been rewatching the flashback scene featuring Matilde's death and I think it really might have happened 15 years ago (those videos of her that JKW is watching are too high quality to be filmed sooner) and I also think there is still a possibility that JKW might not be an immortal because, in the flashback, he is sporting the type of hairstyle which is supposed to make him look younger. So considering LDJ is 39/40 years old, JKW must be in his 40s, if it happened 15 years ago then he would be almost the same age back then as Dan is now,... That's a lot of possible coincidences. However, it's only one of the theories and the possibility that JKW might be immortal is also likely.

Finally, is it only me or do other people think that Dan and JKW have very similar hairstyles? I suspect it might have been done on purpose to draw more potential parallels between the two angels.

Wow I just finished episodes5-6 and I was spazzing over that kiss and dang JW is an angel? Or was an angel? I don’t know! That really put me to edge of my seat and will wait again for Wednesday and Thursday to come! Damn I though I will not get over Her Private life because of the lead’s out of the world chemistry, but dang! This drama surprised me! SHS never fails me! She always get an excellent drama plot, although I’m not familiar with KMY’s work because I haven’t really watched his drama or maybe I have seen him somewhere but he portrays Kim Dan very well and his comedic chop is excellent. Anyway I love the chemistry of LYS and KD! Hahaha our ice princess is opening her heart to our cute and charming angel! I love the therapy scene of YS practicing walking and KD is like a big brother who is teacher after his baby sister to walk! Hehehe! I have to appreciate Ms. Jung. She’s the real Cupid angel who has this fantasy for our OTP! Hehehe she’s the captain of YS and KD ship lol! Kidding aside beside of kind ajussi she is the one who is really looking after YS, she is very loyal to her. The power grabbing of the aunt is fun to watch because she always lost to YS and gets easily annoyed and for me that was satisfying every time she will loose her composure. I’m still unsure of Nina, I still don’t know what is her real intention? I still need to watch her to judge what is her character, she the real who who wears a mask unlike her mother and sister who are really after the power of LYS.

regarding JKW it’s really obvious that he is living in his past, still carrying a torch for his beloved who looks like YS, but I feel that he also had a mission but didn’t complete it because of his lady love. Until YS finally appears and wants to repeat his memory for his sake. Well his really the one whose selfish, at first I’m torn that he can genuinely like YS, and he will be a good rival to KD well that disappears like a smoke at the final seconds of the last episode. But we will see what is this drama will lead us, or maybe it’s too early for me to judge, just like KD who probably curious about the kiss so he just go for the kill. Hehehe!

Something was bothering me. Why Dan said in the beginning that his biggest regret was when he saved LYS? Anybody has any theories about that?

From what I understand in the story, angels should not interfere with the human situation, since he was assign to the animals. He saved her because she ask help and he can’t help himself as well since he is always following her since she got his hankie and when he saved her he got demoted he is not an angel anymore and since he was given a chance to be one again he got the final mission in finding her a true love. 

I hope I’m not mistaken with this one

For some reasons that line made me think of Goblin-ish concept where if someone is supposed to die and doesn't, they will be the anomaly and death will get to them soon to regain the world balance? It's possible that in the future LYS will experience a lot more danger because KD saved her from "fated" death?

 

Also I was watching OST 2 (the OSTS for this drama is so good) and there is this scene:

Yep. It’s from the trailer. It will probably air this week. When she starts her training. There’s an other small part of it, where she shouts at Dan “Yah!” in that ballet dress. :lol:

@jakey09 I totally agree with you there. Actually, I've been preparing a post about the whole concept of physical intimacy and the difference between how YS reacts physically to Dan and KJW is one of the key points. Plus it follows up on the post where I wrote about the lantern scene and the fact that whenever YS is with KJW she only thinks about Dan and I think the gif you use perfectly illustrates that.

I’m liking the difference between these two. She gives such freedom to Dan to touch her in any way. :wub:

Love the comparison! We know LYS likes KD but KD is still in that slow process of following. :lol:

 

Anyways, if JKW tries to in any way to touch or hurt LYS, I won't have any mercy... :angry::lol:

So recently as some of you may know, I made a poll on Twitter asking about folks’ opinion regarding the mysterious woman. It’s a tough competition between “Reincarnation” theory and “Doppelgänger” theory. 

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

Regarding reincarnation theory, something occurred to me - We have seen in many love stories in the past dealing with reincarnation that if a couple or a person gets reincarnated, their soul or heart may stay the same towards their truly one, no? In the sense of true love.  

 

Say YS was in love with KW (Ugh) and gets reincarnated ... shouldn’t her heart/soul be excited towards KW instead of Dan? Otherwise what kind of love was it? That it didn’t last. :lol:

Lmaooo love how you say the last sentence :P Same here, I don't think it's reincarnation either. From what we've seen, it seems like KD and LYS are connected since childhood, so it doesn't make much sense to use two different tropes (childhood vs. reincarnation) for YS's relationship with two different characters :/

OMG these are to die for! Did you make them yourself @Jemrie? Put together like that, they really magnify new facets of her beauty I hadn't seen quite like that. They are so gorgeous, can I invite you to post them all separately in actress SHS's thread here? I can copy them there and make sure they point to you, but it'd be even sweeter if you can do the honors and post them yourself, pretty please?!! And you don't have hide (spoiler) any there since not too many people go there, just a devoted few. :wub:

 

Hi to everyone else writing so many beautiful and thoughtful posts here. I knew it appealed to my sense of fantasy and possibilities when I first heard about this drama way back in November (not announced until December), but what I didn't anticipate was the number and degree of so many insightful soompiers here that the story would inspire - with the kinds of analyses based on really keen deeper observations (very specific things I hardly noticed), so much background info and knowledge shared, all the amazingly gorgeous visuals continuing to pour out from fans. :sweatingbullets::sweatingbullets:

 

I read the reviews on dramabeans and b**ches (thanks for that link @immorethant even though the reviewer there isn't a SHS fan at all) and between those and @briseis and @bebebisous33 and many others' insights there, it's clear that something about this story has triggered something - opened up and inspired many very astute writers and drama-thinkers to show us the probable depth and years' worth of background work the story and screen writer must have done to tell this story - could very well be her magnum opus she's been sitting on for a long time. And it makes me marvel at how the casting director could have foreseen these different elements to pick for us these perfect main leads - and to put it altogether in such a timely manner under pressure - to present a near-perfect (so far) piece of work in every way. Pretty mind-blowing. :expressionless:

 

I just wanted to say, Thank you everyone!

 

And welcome to the thread @lolly84 @Cecentre and of course once more @Jemrie and anyone else I forgot to mention.

OMG! OMG!! OMG!!! THERE WAS ACTUAL LIP MOVEMENT! I really hope we'll get a slightly extended version of the kiss on Wednesday. By the way, if you listen carefully you can actually hear the immediate reaction which follows the kiss as the actors rehearse it.
