[Drama 2019] Angel's Last Mission: Love 단, 하나의 사랑

Recommended Posts

Five reasons I believe this drama will not end sadly.

 

1. Too many angst and heartbreaking scenes so far.

 We just reached the half way of this drama but there're lots of heartbreaking scenes for us already. And also Yeon Seo's life was so sad and had too many angst since the beginning.  Now Dan is the only one that can heal her and if she loses him at the end I don't think she will recover again.  I don't think the writer will be such a sadistic person to do that, and there's no point to make Yeon Seo lose everything again which will bring the story back to the beginning. This is romantic story, not a coming-of-age story that the characters will grow up and learn something from their lose. So there's no point for too much sadness.

Previously Dan's character may need to learn something because his character needs to develop from angel to a real human, so the writer just give him angst for that , but now he's more mature and after knowing their past story, their love will reach a highest point, no more misunderstanding scenes , so the story will move on to how he can protect Yeon-Seo from bad guy and how both love will be allowed by heaven.

 

2. Sad ending of 2 angels.

I tried to think in the writer's perspective that the reason she showed love stories of JKW and old angel is only to create obstacle for our OTP.  To set the stake high and thus give as great reward from happy ending at the end.

There's no point to make Dan ends like those 2 angel couples , then we will have 3 heartbroken angel-human couples which are too much for a single drama. 

 

3. Dan-Yeon childhood's connection

If the love of JKW for Matil and the love of old angels couldn't help them to have good endings, what will help Dan ?  He even has 100 days with Yeon-Seo which less than other 2 couples , how can he convince heaven to let him stay with Yeon-Seo ?  The only reason is their connection since childhood and how both saved and healed each other.  The point to put this connection is not just a cliche coincidence like other dramas, but to create the strong connection which no one even heaven can't take them apart.

 

4. Hoo's mistake

From latest episode , we saw that Hoo didn't know true identity of JKW.  So this is the proof of his 2 mistakes.

- He mistakenly thought that JKW will be the 'rib' and introduce him to Dan to match with Yeon Seo.  If he knew that JKW is also angel then he surely wouldn't have done that.

- Because he didn't know JKW in person , so the story that he told Dan about the ending of failed angel to be turned into dust should be the story that he made it up after hearing JKW's story from other angels (no surprise that the story was distorted when spreading across long distance from NY angel territory to Korea angel territory :D).

 

So now we saw that Hoo began to realize his mistake and not sure anymore about what the real plan Heaven has for Dan.  So this makes me hope that Dan's mission is different from the other cases.

 

5. Shin Hye Sun's past works.

Spoiler alert for anyone who hasn't watched other SHS's drama.

Spoiler

Normally SHS's dramas ends happily, even the time she was only supporting actress, her characters also got the guy and sometimes even got married. I think because she acted her character so cute and had great chemistry with her couple, so it's hard for writer to give sad ending to her.  And because of her bright personality and due to her freedom to choose her own's role now, so I think she'd rather choose the drama that ended happily.    There were only 2 times that her characters ended sadly but because she died ( one was a supporting character that she didn't have much choice to choose and it's thriller drama, another was historical figure that the actual ending couldn't be changed. )  But this is romantic fantasy that anything can happen, and I still believe our Dan-Yeon Seo's love can make a miracle.

 

So I think now I'm still enjoy watching this drama although it's very heartbreaking because I know there're reasons of those sad scenes and I know eventually I will be rewarded with a happy ending.

I think their chemistry didn't begin since episode 8.  It began since their childhood because KMS and SHS were in the same neighborhood.  Probably it's like in the drama that he had a crush on her since then but then he had to move out and became idol , so he forgot all that.   When they met again on first script reading day , he recalled that "oh ! This is the same noona who gave me candies and a kitten when I was young".  :phew::P

Shin Hye Sun Stuns With Detailed Acting In “Angel’s Last Mission: Love”

Shin Hye Sun Stuns With Detailed Acting In “Angel’s Last Mission: Love”

KBS2’s “Angel’s Last Mission: Love” has released still images of Shin Hye Sun’s emotional performance from the recent episode.

 

Shin Hye Sun plays ballerina Lee Yeon Seo and has been receiving lots of praise for her portrayal of the outwardly cold but soft-hearted character. As Lee Yeon Seo meets angel Dan (played by L), Shin Hye Sun is able to delicately draw out the journey of discovering true love.

 

In the June 13 episode, Lee Yeon Seo expressed both her longing for Dan as well as her helpless feelings of love for him through her dance as Giselle.

 

While viewers are aware of the hard work Shin Hye Sun had to put in in order to play a ballerina, this was further demonstrated through her representation of the hopeless Giselle. Shin Hye Sun is able to show off both her dancing skills and the emotions that go along with them.

Ahead of this week’s episode, “Angel’s Last Mission: Love” released photos demonstrating Shin Hye Sun’s hard work.

 

The stills depict Shin Hye Sun on the verge of tears and looking into Lee Dong Gun’s eyes as she thinks of L. The photos also express her elegant form while dancing, and her immersion into the scene is felt through the stills.

“Angel’s Last Mission: Love” has topped Wednesday-Thursday drama ratings for four weeks in a row and will air this week’s episodes on June 19 and 20 at 10 p.m. KST.

But i presume KMS's agency might be very protective of his image and not keen to make promo beyond the drama...       

 

From a PR perspective I don't see how this could damage his image, but rather elevate his brand as an actor that has done great work with ALM:L. Moreover, he has amazing chemistry with SHS and netizens are absolutely dying to see more of them so I personally would have utilised this to the fullest including commercials. Sorry this is the PR person in me speaking!! :D

A bit off topic perhaps but that's how we felt with 100 days husband with D.O from EXO....They had almost zero promotions for him and the lead actress.

 

However, I think MyungSoo has grown in leaps and bounds in terms of acting.

I do anticipate how the story will turn out.

Will he stay on Earth (as his last mission is actually to find love himself) or will he reappear at a later date (which I totally hate this scenario).

I have a feeling he really died as that young boy but what happened to him between then and now? Was he saved by an angel and became a novice angel himself? Hmmmmm

Myung Soo replied? Where? :ph34r:

 

@jakey09 He often chats with fans by text or voice only livestreams through the Infinite channel on the V Live app. He’s so beautiful though that I wish he’d do livestreams where we could see him but that doesn’t really happen lol maybe he’s shy or something haha he’s known to be shy after all.  Anyways he’s such a sweetheart and tries communicating with fans as much as he can. Even if he’s busy or tired. I love him so much. ^_^

Posted (edited)

Clip from the 2nd press conference.

 

(At least there’re Korean caption).

 

 

(edited - sorry, it seems KBS already deleted this video from Youtube :crazy:, so alternate link provided on the next page :P). 

 

 

When she gave 100 points for their chemistry score , but he didn’t. :joy:

 

 

At first reading from the news I think she might gave him an angry stare for his answer,  but here they are still so sweet.  :blush:

 

So good that a fan already made short clips of the scene I like.  Thank you so much and credit to twitter’s owner.

I’m surprised that it wasn’t more discussed in the thread: it’s like people still have hope that he could change his fate: become human again and live a long life with Yeon Seo. 

But it’s impossible: nobody can come back from death. It’s the most definitive thing in the universe.

Dan has been wandering on earth like a ghost because he has some unfinished business with the little girl that gave him happiness and made him want to care about her, but ultimately he has no place here.

 

However Dan’s reaction is similar to the audience: he’s in pure denial. When he recovered his memory, he ran back to Yeon Seo (did he call her? How did she find him?), and the preview showed him asking her to wait for him and not let  Kang Woo approach her.

He had shown before (like almost every character on this drama) selfishness, immaturity and jealousy/possessiveness but personally I feel that it’s very dangerous to everyone involved with him that he chose to continue on this path at the point of the story. It could only lead him to destroy any chance of happiness for Yeon Seo and to a confrontation with Kang Woo.

 

@titania1000 Wow, you wrote an essay and no wonder your head hurts. Really like your analysis and I hope you don't me breaking down some of the parts I feel like I would like to add my two cents to it. :D

 

First of all, to me personally Dan is dead and have never believed he was in a coma or still lingering to life. I don't think he has been wandering on earth like a ghost as this would be mean in my eyes he death was unfair, yes he was running away from his father which led to his death. I don't think his father intended for this as it was an accident. He has been an angel for many years and he was giving mission's on earth so he could enter heaven. Him saving YS was not supposed to happen and he made that decision against his better judgement, which in my eyes means that YS cheated death and in turn, KD was punished to help her find love so that the new life she was granted wouldn't be a waste. She blamed God for every misfortune and that he doesn't listen to her, but I feel like he did here and he connected her to Dan for whatever purpose (will have to find out as I haven't put all the puzzle together).

 

Also, I don't think he is in any denial about himself being dead but rather he is surprised he once was a human and just figured out what has happened to him when he was young. All the dreams started for him when he started to work for YS and the last dream was triggered during his fight with JKW. 

 

I am not sure if anyone noticed this but he died on a rainy day, his dad beat him up always on a rainy day (properly has something to do with the death of his mother here??), he saved YS on a rainy day and his wings come out on a rainy day. To me this all has a correlation and a meaning but cannot put my fingers to it yet. 

 

For me, KD is a bit immature but not selfish or even possessive when it comes to YS. Heck he left her because he didn't want to break her heart and leave her alone cause that would destroy him more than anyone else. He realises more than anyone else that he cannot be with YS regardless of how much he would want that and that's why on so many occasions he said to JKW that he will leave in the end. The old couple showed KD that love doesn't mean being with a person for years but being with that person even for a couple of hours is enough. A testament in my eyes how love descends beyond boundaries and time. :D:wub: He is not asking YS to wait for him without any reason, but rather to find out how to proceed ahead and figure out what God wants from him (rather the path he should be taking). This is why he is so different from JKW in my eyes and the main reason why he will succeed.

 

I just don't see how JKW is supposed to be taking the lead even if Dan is not meant to stay in the very end. Even if Dan leaves, I don't see how YS would ever let JKW take the place of Dan as he is her one and only love. To me, JKW will play an important role in getting them to be together in the end but not end up with YS in a million years. Sorry Chingu, as much as I feel sorry for JKW and hope he finds happiness and peace in the end. 

 

Continuing with JKW, the impression I got from his confrontation with YS about the open audition is that he didn't agree at all with her decision as he still believes he is right regardless and would have replaced the entire troupe if she didn't call him in that morning. He still believes that his decision is 100% right and YS did undermind him at that point which is why he freaked out at her. To him, YS is the only one that should and will play Gisselle regardless.

 

For me, to see a properly character development of JKW he needs to put his past to rest and see the difference between YS and Matilda. He is still selfishly trying to achieve his dream for Matilda through YS which wrong in my books on so many levels. And this is also why he cannot see anything beyond his dreams and gets annoyed with KD when he suggested to YS to leave ballet and only dance for him.

 

OKAY--- I need to stop here as I will seriously write a dissertation on this show. :D:phew:

@immorethant Nice post! I truly enjoyed reading your thoughts! 

I agree that we're more likely to have a happy ending if we have now many heartbreaks and sad scenes. So i'm hopeful for the end:)

No worries: i agree with your arguments. :)

It's just that i got the feeling that as  an idol his agency is promoting his work in a way that might not include other co-stars. 

It feels like it's different for them from the work he does with the members of his group where everyone is included in the promo.

ALML seems more like an individual achievement in his career, so all the promo is  to make him shine alone.

 

It's only an impression, like i said i would be up for a photoshoot of the 3 leads, since all play a big role in the success  of the drama. :wub:

@titania1000 You might be right and it might be nice to get a photoshoot of the 3 leads and some individual images as well.

 

I am up for anything to be honest as our lovely SHS has never done any photoshoot with any of the ML before although there were hints of possible one with SH which never happened in the end. :wub::D I am a fan of lee Dong-Gun as well and really liked him in Sketch, The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailer Shop and Night After Night with Kim Sun-A.

@almldan Thanks for sharing this. KD really looks so dashing and yes, YS is back to wearing his handkerchief as hair tie. :wub::wub:

 

And @immorethant  thanks for the video posts of their second press release and I really enjoyed reading your post of why this drama will not have a sad ending. :D:lol:
