I have a feeling we may never know/see who the VIP is till the end of the show. 

That's one of the possiblity. In fact I read comments on YouTube and Twitter saying that the tailor made his own virtual VIP. 

 

Also I tried seeing that women's dress in that tailor shop during the episode but couldn't see that. I had the opinion that VIP might be a woman but again seeing how tailor Kim spoke in the episode made me rethink that he might be the actual VIP. I am more curious to see how did they wrap it actually. Because now am pretty sure we wont see the PE. Or we might be taken to the PE day directly during the last 5 minutes of the last episode.

Now that I have read what the local viewers think , I have much respect for this writer for daring to touch on the Discrimination Bill. It is a hot & sensitive issue , and I believe the writer expected this backlash even though this is just a drama. 

PMJ would have totally lost the seat if he had pressed on. The drama was not exaggerating

Article: Naver 'Designated Survivor: 60 Days' Ji Jin Hee, Anti-Discrimination Act enforced

 

Spoiler

1. [+303, -177]
The Anti-Discrimination Act is what the homosexuals are demanding, isn't it? It's funny how this included in the drama. The treatment fee for AIDS contracted by homosexuals costs 5 million won monthly per person, they can choose to receive treatment anonymously, and it can be paid by taxes. Isn't that reverse discrimination? I wonder what was the scriptwriter thinking when s/he was writing this.
- [+44,-20]
That is just a small part of the Act. The Anti-Discrimination Act regulates on a larger scale. Please find out more information about it. 
- [+44,-23]
Crazy... Heterosexuals have a higher incidence of contracting AIDS than homosexuals. And that mindset of homosexuals=AIDS carriers shows are immature you are. I hope you think carefully again. 


2. [+277, -159]
The Anti-Discrimination Act is such a sensitive topic. I've been enjoying this drama but I felt uneasy the whole time I was watching this. 

3. [+84, -1]
Who could be the VIP... Looks like a plot twist is coming up... 

4. [+168, -105]
It's a shame to touch on such a sensitive topic when it was mentioned that this drama is tailored to our country's current situation. The original drama also touches gun control and transgenders but that's because Americans are fine with it. I can't help but think that this is done intentionally knowing that it's not the case in Korea. 
- [+43,-0]
The Americans don't mind, you say? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Gun control is a very sensitive issue in the US. About 30 people were killed in a mass shooting just last weekend. What is their reason for not being able to or choosing not to regulate gun control laws?

5. [+127, -65]
The Anti-Discrimination Act is turned into a righteous thing in the drama. Looks like this is a makjang. Or is it a pro-government drama?

6. [+33, -8]
It's a drama with good actors. I'm enjoying this.

7. [+35, -12]
It's a total disappointment today. There is zero tension. It felt uncomfortable to see them talking about the Anti-Discrimination Act the whole time today. 

8. [+19, -0]
It was a little difficult to understand today's episode. It's ending next week, why are you doing this, director? ㅠㅠㅠㅠ And that sudden basketball scene. It's insane, seriously ㅋㅋㅋ 

9. [+39, -23]
I'm not sure about their intention... The Anti-Discrimination Act actually supports Reverse Discrimination. I wonder what is their intention for adding this in. This feels unpleasant.

And oh my ! Oppa LJH  dying brought in the highest one minute rating .

Final BTS for LJH. Am gonna miss him :dissapointed_relieved:

On another note OYS started posturing and being too loud with his thoughts towards Kim Tailor. But alas he was not a patient man.

I'd love to see him play as a uniform wearing male lead!:lol::D

after watching episode 14 I been thinking that maybe they won't show the v.i.p. Or if he/she is show it will be like the last episodes last minutes.  that could totally lead to second season. well if there ever will be second season.

 

there has to more that one mole in the blue house or how else the bad guys always know what going to happen. 

 

there still 30 days left and only two episodes left.:D

i'm really not sure what to expect for the last two eps and have around 30 days left till the Pres elections... just hope they wrap it up coherently if they wont make another season!

Though they paced it really well that I didn't realise we're going to see the last episode so soon :(((

after watching EP 14, I am almost confirm the tailor is indeed the VIP. Idky but since earlier episode I believe he is the VIP. The reason is we never see him make a call to the 'VIP' and if there is an actual VIP, we should already get a glimpse of him (either his hand, leg, silhoutte, back of his body etc) like how other drama hinting but in this none. Furthermore, all the evidence is in his safe box so I do believe he is the VIP. He just said about the 'VIP' so that people will listen to him because how do you want to get those high officials to listen to ex -spy if he did not create a much bigger rank character. 

 

For Sec Han, I think he is the mole aka insider for Tailor Kim's team rather than the VIP himself.

yup. hope no season 2. The reason I get bored with American Series is because they always did not conclude and drag the series into too many seasons until it become ridiculous.

Do we think that General Lee has joined the coup? Nah... he's a maverick and a patriot but I'm happy to be proven wrong. ;) Sure he may have an ego the size of Jeju but the fact that he ultimately submitted to civilian authority despite attempting to take matters into his own hands to begin with speaks volumes. He didn't cause more trouble then, why would he now? I believe PMJ read him right in not trying to kowtow and apologize profusely but lay down the facts of the matter. The man understands strength above all else.

 

I'm not convinced that shooting OYS in the head will preserve his legacy as a hero or survivor especially when the man who shot him turned on himself and took his own life. Maybe there's something here about Korean culture that I'm completely missing. Will OYS be hailed a martyr because he was murdered... assuming he is dead... by one of his own men? Do they think the details of OYS involvement with the Tailor Kim and Co won't ever see the light of day? It's a cop out. An easy way out. So much for the "Survivor" tag. Much as I loved LJH's performance of OYS, I will be angry and throw things at the screen if they bury anything regarding his involvement in the conspiracy in the finale. He was dangerous. He put the country's political system -- not perfect, I know -- at risk and was willing to go for non-democratic alternatives.

 

I can't disagree with him when he said that people are by nature discriminatory or that they have biases or prejudices. That is the reality of human history. Whether or not we should legislate against "wrong" ideas  (depending on which side of the debate you happen to be) and turn them into thoughtcrimes... well, I am reminded of 1984. And yes, it is true that people vote for those who represent their interests which is what democracy is supposed to be about. But politicians are lazy and so is the media, if we're honest... they resort to soundbites to get the attention they need. I don't mind politicians having convictions but they often seem unwilling to prosecute their arguments. If they believe in what they believe, they should be out there selling it. 

 

As usual the even numbered episode was better than the odd numbered one. 

 

Strategically I thought that PMJ did the right thing in postponing the anti-discrimination bill. Sure, there are disappointed people but there are always going to be disappointed people whatever he does. But the urgency of other matters should take precedence. I'm glad he caught on to what a real threat OYS presented ASAP and the will to succeed. PMJ prioritized... as he had to, given what he now knows about the larger conspiracy at play.

 

I can see why people think that Tailor Kim might be the VIP. The thought did cross my mind. I suppose it's possible if he has the kind of funding needed. But I still that there's someone bankrolling him. Apparently he was an agent who had spent time in the north which piqued my interest. This fact took me to Star Trek. Heh. Not sure if anyone in these forums are Trek fans but in DS9, one of the more intriguing characters with dubious origins was a tailor/dressmaker. He was an agent of sorts. 

 

I had wondered and was glad when Han Mo jumped back in the fray. I wasn't sure at first if he was just putting on an act... because I thought... "this is why people don't go into public service and politics" But was really pleased when he showed up for work when least expected. :D

I am disturbed by the wy OYS died. his driver clearly aiming at his heart and his reflex when shot clearly looks like the bullet gets to his heart. But when the close up of him dying, he was shot at the head with entry from the right. Base on physics law it is quite unlogical because he and the driver are facing each other front view and for a bullet to get through his head when it was aiming on a lower side and from that distance is just unlogical!

 

***I work in science field and like PMJ I am quite concern with unlogical fact like this.

Haha... lets not over analyse, we would just hurt our heads :o... fact is, the character died...  im sure OYS would be unsatisfied too, to die like that, ie to be killed by his own bodyguard... him being proud and all, he would want a more dignified death.... ah well...

 

At least it wasnt by the crazy snipers, who were aiming his body... :D
