[Drama 2019] Designated Survivor : 60 Days, 60일, 지정생존자

Recommended Posts

There is actually no doubt now that the political advisor Han is part of the conspiracy. Since he had written the file number in his agenda, he knew the content about the file. In my opinion, Han must have been the one who asked CYJ to call the ministry of national defense in order to revoke LGM's clearance. Remember that they shared the same office. 

If we look back at Han's actions from the start, we can see that Han's decisions played a huge part in the conspiracy.

  1. We heard that Han was the one who selected PMJ as minister for Environment.
  2. He is also the one who sent PMJ to the FTE negociations as he knew PMJ wouldn't be able to handle the meeting. From the start, Han knew that PMJ was no politician... he saw in him the perfect puppet. Somehow, he predicted that PMJ would be fired or would resign due to the negotiations with US delegation.
  3. We also heard from OYS that PMJ is part of the bombing. These words are quite important because it reveals that the mastermind had already planned to have two survivors: OYS and PMJ. PMJ would be used as a puppet during the 60 days. Remember Han's words: PMJ is no politician. Notice how PMJ was treated by Han in the beginning (episode 2). PMJ should just be a puppet and close his mouth.

But the problem started, when PMJ acted differently from what Han had expected. Yet, the more time passed on, the more popular PMJ got so that the lower are the chances that OYS can succeed. Han never imagined that PMJ would be able to figure out about the real situation with the North Korean submarine. We heard from Han twice that he doesn't support PMJ as presidential candidate. And all these leaks are no coincidence: they were all targeting PMJ in order to undermine his presidency. If he encountered terrible situations and wasn't able to face these troubles, he would become unpopular. All this was to ensure that PMJ has no desire to become the next president. The more pressure he got, they expected that PMJ would crumble.

 

And this is important: PMJ as presidential candidate represents a thread to their conspiracy. Since CYJ has put all his efforts in PMJ, to me there is no doubt that he doesn't belong to the conspiracy. Han was clever because by making CYJ suspicious, he can gain some time and it makes it more possible that OYS could get elected. That's why the mastermind decided to change the plan: kill or injure PMJ so that he wouldn't be able to act as Acting president. Furthermore, there are only 10 days left before the deadline (announcing his candidacy).

 

Han accepted to come back because PMJ was able to succeed in each challenge he encountered. I am also wondering if there is not another mole in the Blue House close to PMJ. As for the mastermind, the VIP, this person could be someone close to weapons industry, like the CEO of a famous arms industry company. He would have benefited the most after the bombing... Imagine if PMJ had followed Han's instructions and acted like a puppet... 

 

Let us not forget that Hitler was supported by rich industrialists (especially Foreign weapons companies and banks). They were looking for a profit. They knew that Hitler had planned a war. In my opinion, this could be the same here. @40somethingahjumma imagined that OYS could be a double agent, yet I have my doubts about it due to his speech at the funeral. All his thoughts were focusing on the nation ("incompetent nation"; " a coward government" and "an unfortunate nation") and not on the people. He wants a strong country which reminds me definitely of Hitler's speeches. Besides, what caught my attention were the words from one of the generals: "A fearless soldier is the most dangerous". Even this general said that no one should get used to the loss of soldiers and people.... but OYS showed no empathy and sadness in that room. To me, OYS has no problem to have people killed so that his dream can be achieved. For him, people have to be sacrificed in order to change the nation. His comrades acted like brainwashed followers.

 

Sorry, if I keep mentioning Hitler but the latter had decided to change the regime legally and in my opinion, this is the real motive behind the bombing. The mastermind wanted to turn OYS into a hero and become so popular so that he would win the presidential election. Without the bombing, OYS would have never had the chance...  OYS would win legally the election and after that, he would change the regime. Don't forget that OYS has a military background... this is the reason why he hates politicians (Just like Hitler by the way).

 

@triplem I was able to catch up... great drama.

ep 10 was awesome. packed of action. This episode confirmed my suspicious about Han. In my mind he is part of this conspiracy. 

And the person who got shot is president park.  I can't see that it would be someone else. 

 

I actually think that OYS didn't know that the shooting would happen or if he did he's totally unreadable. He is part of this conspiracy but does he know everything or does he even know who is the v.i.p.? I doubt it.

There is one thing that has been bothering me in the last episode. How could the wife call HNG on her cellphone, since she had a new cellphone? I mean, their first contact was not through the phone. HNG followed the colleague's wife. 

 

I thought that was a bit weird too... my thinking was that the scene before where HanMo (whilst in custody) requested to talk to his family was the moment he told his wife  to try to get a hold of HNG and he passed on her details.  But personally I think that’s an oversight in the story.  I mean if you’re on the run, you wouldn’t be using your normal mobile or number?  It could be tracked easily?  You would be out of contact like JunO, calling from public phones etc.  I don’t know. I wasn’t following that too subplot closely.  :lol:

Yeah on watching the trailer again, it looked like neither OYS nor PMJ got hurt. OYS looked shocked and PMJ's expression didn't seem like he his hurt. It's more like OYS pulled PMJ down so that he doesn't get shot. Instead now I feel the guy sitting behind on the chair has died.

 

If it was just some other random guy the scene where they get to the hospital with the gurney doesn’t make sense.  So many security Guards?  I think it’s more likely PMJ.  But wait...were there 2 shots?  He misfired his first shot because HNG distracted him by firing into the window/at his rifle?  There was a second shot?  So maybe the first one hit the guy slumped in the chair and the second hit PMJ?  I can’t remember.

 

EDIT - yeah looks like there were potentially 2 shots.  First shot he unloads as she shoots into the window distracting him, she gets taken down by security and TaeIk curses, reloads and then another shot(?) before the screen blacks out.

I guess I would be in the same boat.  Showing my age.  Don’t use filters at all. :lol:.  Actually he should know better coz he has a degree in Visual Design and worked as a photographer before he was scouted.  He probably just couldn’t be bothered.

i have a feeling the shooting is not in their original plan but it is rather a plan B when they learned that PMJ has somehow revoke the security level of Minister of Def. So they need to put down the acting president to let OYS rise.

Had to go to Asian wiki to find his name where it stated as Park SooKyo! But he was so shocked and paralyzed when the bombing happened.

Someone mentioned that probably the shooter was aiming at OYS but watching the preview of ep11 for the umpteen time its definitely looks like he was aiming at PMJ. At the end of ep10 we heard only one shot and the shooter must have missed his target when agent Han shot at him. There is a guy who is sitting motionless behind OYS he must have been hit. 

 

And i don't think OYS pulled PMJ down. I think the president's security guards pulled PMJ down from behind him. I know some of us here do not want OYS to be the bad guy, that probably he's a double agent probably snooping around to see if anyone around him is an accomplice in the bombing.  I hope he is not but i can't seem to see him that way. A double agent would definitely hide his true self but

1. OYS reveals his deeper feelings especially to Assemblywoman Yun. He tells her something like 'In the nation i hope to live in there is no place for you' (sorry if i got that wrong) that's so frightening.

2, When he was cornered by PMJ about agent Han. He says Han probably resent him because her boyfriend died in the bombing. How did he know this when even the president didn't.

3. When they failed to kill off agent Han by the gas explosion his tailor reported it to him in riddles. 

4. When the tailor inform him that they failed to reveal PMJ's scandal he says "that's alright I think we have everything covered"

 

Thank you @bebebisous33 for you insight on political advisor Han's involvement in the bombing it has somehow 'open my eyes' to his behavior. You could be right in suspecting him.

 

Just some thoughts.

1,I didn't like how JunO died. I mean they are NIS agents. They a highly trained in tough situation but there they were standing in the middle of the road. They were easy targets. I was expecting the truck of doom to come hahaha.

2. Why was security so lax at the investiture ceremony. The two security guards just let a guy into a building facing the place where the ceremony is taking place. The nation just went through a bomb attack and security is so lax omg!

They thought he was part of the Security Detail.  He was wearing the same get up, had the intercom with ear piece and the Security lapel pin.  Plus he strode so confidently past them that they probably thought he was doing a routine check.

--------------------------------------

 

@imgreatgal I too thought why the two guards guarding that Eunsan Buildings entrance let him enter without so much as identification. I felt I should have to heavily criticize their briefing instructor for being so lax on letting even personnel enter without clearance. In real life even if you are friends with the guard you are supposed to show your personal identification card which will show the clearance level and that is the protocol!Even if you are in the same agency! These two guards must be new recruits!! I had this naggy feeling about it too while watching!!! Ok I will let it pass! lol

 

----------------------------------

 

When did we ever start trusting previews. lol!

I feel the scene of the shooting will be extended more and there wil be the second shot taking down the President. Maybe the other shot landed on that person sitting in the chair!!

There was three shots. One from agent Han the second shot is from the shooter he missed and tried a second time and it coincides with the ending. The third shot is debatable. They probably did that to let us speculate if it was really a shot or they just making that sound for the closing of that episode.

That is why i said security is lax. These men are the presidents security guards they know each other there shouldn't be someone new without the chief of security's knowledge.

That can be a totally different scene even. Also it can be PMJ. As of now all the possibilities are open. Hoping that Monday comes soon

I don’t think we’re the only ones speculating.  The episode preview on Naver https://m.tv.naver.com/v/9335711 has over 74000 views.  The usual view count for any of the videos for that drama is usually 10000-20000 :lol:

The ratings are holding steady around 4% (last ep highest at 4.4).  Can’t read Korean so don’t know how Knetizens are reacting but I did notice a sharp increase in number of comments since the last ep :lol:.  I think it’s pretty good ratings for a cable drama and in a Mon/Tue slot.

In my opinion, the attempted assassination could be the trigger for PMJ to change his mind about the presidential candidacy. First, PMJ could use this occasion in order to let OYS reveal his true color. Furthermore, I doubt that Han knows that PMJ hasn't given OYS all access which will be a huge mistake. Remember that only his bodyguard and JSJ are aware of OYS's involvement and that someone in the Blue House is involved. I als think that PMJ has already figured it out that the NSI chief is involved because he believed that KJW was dead.

 

As conclusion, the plan has already started falling apart... They failed to kill PMJ and the latter will announce his candidacy. And this leads me to the next conclusion that since the chances of OYS's election are getting lower, the mastermind might plan another bombing on the day of the election in order to ensure that OYS gets full power and authorities.  

 

@imgreatgal Thanks for the compliment. :wub: Thanks to @angelbeast90's taking, I was able to make another observation. Advisor Han talks to PMJ about shame and indirectly about pride, just like OYS. At the funeral, OYS kept saying that he was too embarrassed and ashamed. All his speech was evolving about pride and shame. I have the impression that Han had decided to abandon the former president as he thought that OYS was the best solution. I see a parallel between Han and CYJ: the latter is betting on PMJ, while Han had long chosen OYS. Han has been a good advisor towards CYJ and PMJ because he can not reveal his true involvement. If his actions and advises had been bad, it would have been too obvious. We should see Han as the double agent that @40somethingahjumma has been expecting. 

 

Since we can now believe that Han is part of the conspiracy, we have to remember that Han looked shocked, when he saw the building exploding. He was also sad thinking about the president Jang therefore just because the protocol secretary PSG was shocked and hurt after witnessing the attack, we shouldn't jump to the conclusion that he has to be excluded. People from the conspiracy will feel sad and pained, but at the same time, they justify this as a necessary sacrifice. From my point of view, Han got disappointed how the country was being ruled. Jang, a good man, was heavily criticized... furthermore many ministers had scandals. I sense that the real reason for the attack was the resentment and hate against the democracy. OYS hates politicians and he clearly stated it to Yun. So once he got the power, he will turn the country into a dictatorship. 

 

The huge difference between Yang and PMJ is: CYJ described Yang as the kindest man he has ever known, whereas PMJ is called a good man. Kind and good are different. PMJ could show a certain coldness and strength. He had no problem to fire the general and issue an executive order, although many were against it. He is definitely no pushover, as the conspirators expected.

The reason why PMJ was mistaken for a pushover by the conspirators:

  1. He is no politician
  2. He has always worked at school based on his CV
  3. He helped his future wife in her lawsuit indirectly which can not be seen in his CV. No one was aware that he was the one who gave her the tip how to help the injured workers. Furthermore, it also showed that PMJ has never hidden behind his books and data. He was well aware of his surroundings (the lawsuit aso). He felt concern for the workers as he had already figured a way out... he must have studied a lot before. His solution was not spontaneous.
  4. When he heard that she was a divorced single mother, he didn't care at all what people might think about him. He was even more determined to date her. If he had been a pushover, he would have worried what his family or people might think about him: dating a divorced single mother. He even allowed the ex-husband to spread the rumor that his wife had been cheating on him as he wanted to ensure SW's well-being. This explains why even Han believed in this "scandal". No normal person would have accepted to have his name and reputation tarnished for the sake of someone else. Don't forget that Han often speaks about shame. Han is an delusioned politician: his expression "choosing the less evil" was really telling.
  5. He accepted to wear the shoes from Yang, although he felt uncomfortable all this time. People could see this gesture. Being called "Cinderella" reinforced this impression as Cinderella is considered as a poor, powerless person, a pushover bullied by her family (stepsisters and stepmother).
  6. His determination to win SW's heart... it took him a long time before SW accepted him. He felt threatened by male adults as he witnessed abuse as a small child. He never gave up which is a huge strength. Despite being in a tough position, he accepted it and made sure that his efforts would pay off. No one knows about SW's trauma and the interaction between SW and PMJ.

The conspirators could never discover all this as PMJ was not observed and it was not written in the CV. They only judged PMJ based on his CV... a superficial judgement in the end. 

 

PMJ wants to leave the office because he wants to protect his family. However, the attempted assassination and the next discoveries will make him realize that the best way to protect his family is to become a candidate as he can not accept OYS as future dictator.
