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

Recommended Posts

I thought it was terribly cheeky of TVN to tease us like that .... 

translated caption with Papago :

Isn't it cheating ( wrong ) to show both love and war in one episode?
So when are you going to make peace? ( make up )

Jin-Hee NOOO...why you stand between our OTP?  And have her stand next to the competition?  We can’t crop the photo and send it to Dispatch then? Have you learnt nothing from the political shenanigans in BH?

Thanks @nrllee at least SSK understands our shipper heart . :D Seems that the Blue House team are pretty close IRL. 

One for the road for oppa LJH. 

Though I can’t root for your delusional character here , you’re still very handsome :lol: & great in this role . 

@angelbeast90 the handler of TvN social media pages has a wacky sense of humour !

 

By the way , what will happen now that PMJ is running ? So he has to quit the acting president seat first right ?

Is that the kidnapped boy? Are they trying to appease us by showing that he is okay? Is his character Hanmo's child?

 

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

 

I searched some pdf's and it really has to be done in 60 days. spoilered coz long link

 

 

So currently they can only run for one term according to this:

 

South Korea’s leader proposed changing the constitution to allow presidents to serve up to eight years over two terms, instead of the current limit of one five-year term, a shift that advocates say would provide more stability in Seoul’s policies toward North Korea.

credit

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

So therefore I think Park Dae can't be sitting in the seat while running it seems. So will OYS be Acting President again or will power be controlled by council of ministers??

i have a question about OYS. does someone have record of all that he has survived? the ship battle (btw who was this battle between? when? way too young for the cold war...) and then the blowing up of the national assembly. what is the third? (or first technically if it is chronologically.) also, what is he so mad about? i think i asked this question before but is oys just pissed they weren't sent to war? were they stranded without resources? lmao i will try and focus more in this rewatch cos..

Am now more worried about how did they end this series.. The first 30 days took up 12 episodes, can they accommodate the rest 30 days in 4 episodes? Or will they not show the PE? Just don't ruin it. :tears:

I'm just coming in to say I love this scene from Secretary Cha. The puppy is so touched (and overwhelmed with emotions) when Park Mu Jin announced he will run for presidential selection. LOLLLL. So much love. Bromance rocks.

Spoiler

 

 

 

Now let's hope he's happy enough to ask her Jung Soo Jung (crap, I forgot her name) out the 3rd time...

He said there would be no third time.  I think she will need to swallow her pride and do the asking this time. :lol:

I get the feeling they won’t show the actual PE.  They will just wrap up the story of the terror cell and Oh will be ousted and PMJ shown to be in the running, along with Yun.  Because she really hasn’t done anything “wrong”, she’s just in a different party?  And it will finish like that. I don’t actually mind if they do that.  He’s already grown so much as a character so even if they leave us hanging about the results I won’t feel cheated.  It’s enough for me that he’s stepped up to be in the race and trying.

If it ends up like this am fine. I just need a convincing and appropriate ending. Some of my favorite dramas got ruined in the last episodes or last minute..Dont want this one to be on that list. It would have been good if this was 20 episodes one

Hola Chingoos!

Happy summer to everyone! (Or winter to our friends in the southern hemisphere).

 

I just caught up on this drama all the episodes. I think the last 2 episodes were the best, as my frustrations from the earlier episodes were all pretty well resolved with these episodes 11 and 12.

 

I am now a fan of this drama and the writer. I have not seen the original American one, but I think this Korean version is very well done - the story fits very well the current political situation going on and the historical context, too, so it makes me anticipate where this story will go in the last 4 episodes.

 

Not being a fan of Ji Jin-Hee, I must say his character has won me over. And Lee Joon-Hyuk is killing it - but strangely, the acting and the story is such that I am not rooting for his character at all - I am hating his character.

 

I love it!

But the intro gives a sort of answer to the presidential election: he is dressed like he was the president and he is standing in front of the desk, while as Acting President, he always remained far away from the desk and preferred to sit to the table.

I haven't watched the US version but I have the impression that the drama will end on the day of the PE and at the same time, they will find the mastermind and arrest the persons involved.

I hope the ending is very very tense! While the president is being sworn in they still need to capture the mastermind and Agent Han Nagyeong will be running around with a gun!!! Well I can only hope , after all they have finished shooting!!:D

On another note 60 days is like almost 2 months. Almost a month has passed in this drama's timeline. I feel today's episode will start with the 60 changing to 30!!

 

But Agent Han Nagyeong does not give up so easily after all these days and she is at it even after her fiancee died. If it was another person they would be asking for time off and tell the Blue House team to get the mastermind themselves. But she is so patriotic. Also I feel she will be the next Director of NIS after she has gone through all this.

@mademoisellesia

Here is another translation:D

그동안 외사랑을 하던 차영진의 부름에
드디어.... 박무진이 응답했다

papgo translate it as:

At the love call of Cha Young-jin, who had been in love with others,
Finally, Park Moo-jin answered.
 
strike through is my correction.lol

The third is: the assassination attempt, where PMJ was targeted. In the eyes of the citizens, he could have died.

 

He was mad that after such a battle, the generals and the government decided for another status quo. He saw the soldiers' death as a vain sacrifice. SK has still issues with North Korea.

Actually I went back to watch that scene because most of us just overlook things in earlier episodes because we’re just trying to wrap our minds around who’s who.  And my interpretation of that scene where Yang fires PMJ changed as a result of what we know now of Sec Han.  

 

Yes Han sent PMJ in the negotiations to ensure it will fall flat.  He wanted to sour the US-Korea relations (if you do that, it makes it less likely for a North-South peace treaty).  When Yang and PMJ have that heated exchange about pollution and morals, and they seem to be at a stalemate, Han actually seems to make an attempt to throw his views into it to settle it by walking from the door towards the 2 of them.  Then he stops short as Yang seems to relent to PMJ’s pleas.  The camera actually pans in on Han’s face and he smiles as Yang says, “Sec Han, please contact the Korean delegation.  Tell them I will be honoring PMJ’s wishes...” (pregnant pause for effect and Han smiles) then he continues, “He will be held responsible for today’s incident...and dismissed from Office.”  Then camera pans on PMJ’s face and then Sec Han’s face both of which register shock/dismay.  I think Han expected Yang to bow to PMJ’s pleas but he didn’t?  So PMJ’s dismissal/leaving wasn’t planned by the terrorist cell.  So I doubt they wanted PMJ to survive?  They had to rejig their plans last minute because as you said, there would be 2 survivors now.  And they thought, “no problemo...PMJ is just going to maintain status quo.  He’s going to flounder and fail miserably.”  But he kept surprising them.  And became a genuine threat/contender.

I watched the scene again and the one with JSJ. First, we have to imagine that the incident with the bottles were planned by PMJ. His assistant noticed it. That way, he made sure that the US delegation couldn't do what they wanted, since the pressure from the citizens was supporting the government. However, PMJ didn't expect that despite the citizens' support, Yang would agree with the demands. First, PMJ accepted it, until Yang reminded him of the shoes. He told him that PMJ had become comfortable with these shoes. With this metaphor, he outlined that PMJ had become a real politician, accepting something even if he didn't like it or didn't fit his conviction. And this remark made PMJ realize that he didn't want to become like this hence he tried to argue and wanted to convince the president to change his mind: see the FTA as a real chance for negogation and not use this incident in order to maintain a certain honor and reputation. As you can see, the real trigger for PMJ's firing were Yang's words. Yang realized that PMJ would never agree to anything that hurts his conscience and belief.

 

So you are right: PMJ wasn't supposed to survive first but the conspirators saw this as a minor incident and believed that PMJ was just a cinderella, a pushover.... while in reality, with the bottle incident he proved that he could be creative.

@bebebisous33 yes it was all about the shoes in that scene.  Metaphorically. I liked that they used it.  I wonder if they did the same in the US version.  I am waiting for this to end before I watch the US Version on Netflix.  I get the feeling originally this was supposed to have 20 episodes, split into 2 Seasons like Chief Aide.  Because originally on Netflix there were 10 episodes in this Season.  It was only later that they turned it into 16 episodes and 1 season.  Netflix seems to prefer this format of shorter seasons.  They did it for Kingdom and also for Arthdal.  Instead of one long season, they split it.  I guess they decided to just move with status quo and have the usual 16 and not drag it out to 20 split into 2 seasons of 10.  I wonder if they really got to film in the Blue House?  It would’ve been quite a treat for everyone if they did.
