@gilaswan:  Totally agree with your summary evaluation, which is why I was particular in my choice of words in my previous comments.

 

One of the best things about this drama was that it provided us with topics for discussion. 

 

Unfortunately, we were wrapped up in dissecting and discussing the romances and never delved into their internet issues, which we are also our current internet issues in real life. 

 

The subjects of:

  • manufactured and/or manipulation of data,
  • security and sanctity of personal information,
  • potential and real consequences of portal information,
  • industry regulating versus governmental regulating, etc.

It would have been interesting to read soompiers' understanding and perspective on these issues.

The episodes I enjoyed the most were Ep.1-4... After that, it was too much of the romance that I was on the verge of getting bored but still enjoying some of the workplace power play. Good thing SJH appeared and together with Scarlett, they spiced up the watching for me. I agree that more screen time could be used for the business arc. Nevertheless, this is still a memorable drama for me.

I liked that they touched on these topics... but there's nothing much controversial for me to talk about them.

 

Obviously, private information should be private, but hell, in this age of big data, whatever you put on the internet, you no longer can control 100%. Govt and Corps are always gonna be greedy and try to control the internet like authoritarian bodies, and the power to fight back rests solely in the power of the people, which, honestly is what drives and keeps the internet alive anyway. Deep down at the core, it's basically Free-information vs Media-control.

 

When everything goes well, the internet is good. When something goes wrong, the internet is to be blamed. That's just too shallow a view and too complicated a topic for a thread dedicated to spazzing over a drama. The governments which are filled with congressmen can't even form a coherent opinion on this topic. What should I even discuss about?

 

The romance lines though? Simple and real enough to squeal or wail over. Plus, it's closer and more relatable to our daiy lives. Honestly, the only controversial topic from there is the marriage vs non-marriage or that seize-the-moment vs worry-about-the-future dilemma between TaMi and Morgan.

I would love to see the cast on Running Man. It would be so fun watching them doing all these tasks and games.

Ahhhh! But I want the songs with lyrics... like the song during MoMi first dinner date haha! It's like an ambiance song... but with soft humming or whatever...

 

FINALLY FOUND IT! It's Chet Baker - Little Girl Blue

The sounds team is crazy..... this fits so perfectly with Tami's situation that moment. I'm so happy @mademoisellesia :wub:

It's the BGM for this scene:

Lyrics:

Quote

Sit there and count your fingers,

what can you do
Old girl, you're through
Just sit there and count your little fingers,

unhappy little girl blue
Sit there and count the raindrops falling on you
It's time you knew
All you can count on are the raindrops that

fall on little girl blue
No use, old girl, you might as well surrender
Your hopes are getting slender, why won't somebody send

a tender blue boy to cheer up little girl blue

When you were very young,

the world was younger than you
As merry as a carousel
The circus tent was strung with ever star in the sky
Above the ring you loved so well
Now the young world has grown old,

gone are the silver and gold

I just finished ep 15 and wow, it didn't disappoint.

First of, may I just say, Scarlet (LDH) is freakin' gorgeous! In any angle and any outfit, she's just so beautiful. I like her in Beauty Inside but now, I love her. I'm definitely a fan now.

Also, Scarlet is the best friend I want to become. She's just so awesome. She's there for you through thick and thin. She'll fight for you without asking what for. She'll join you in your misery and celebrate with you your triumphs. She'll even save you from sticky situation even if you're not in such good terms as before (she saved SGG from a mob of reporters). And she's so funny too! 

 

 

yea im walked out this drama as a fan of LDH too, omg that girl just so so down to earth like happy bills in real life, now i have to see again all episode of LDH on running man lol, thats true self of her :)) . Keeping up with all of her project in future too

@forwww Woah. Well done! How did you manage? It's such an old song too. Must say, it is very suitable to play in the background at a restaurant. Thank you for thinking of me when you found it. Well, I only managed to find the live ascoustic version of Track 10 - Reaching Hands by Jang Bun Jun himself. Still like the OST ver. better though, it has a sadder tone to it and was always used in scenes to convey helplessness of a situation or on Tami & Morgan when they went through some rough patches.

I also found this, but can't put my head around when it appeared in the show

Now I'm going to tempt you with this :D

OMGGGGGGGGGGG Don't tempt me :(

I'm waiting actually for the DVD pre-order... usually it's after the blu-ray edition pre-order, but I don't think there'll be any english subs available hahaha :(

 

I'm planning to buy the OST album first, then hopefully the dvd! How about you?

@Auntie Mame

The whole invading into web user's personal info was reflective of the Chinese Huawei ban in the US no? But then again the Government can spy in other ways i.e. Google does this too. We're never completely as incognito as we like to think, so be careful when you click LoL? Your smartphones with its apps are pretty suspect too... The ads...your smartphone camera..

Just recently my country placed a ban on drones. There was a reported case where someone flew a drone into the vicinity of a statesman's home:wacko: They inspected the drone but failed to find anything suspicious... Nonetheless now everyone is required to apply for a permit to fly these drones. Among it's conditions to only fly a certain radius/distance/height or pay a very heavy fine as punishment.  

You liked Thelma & Louise ?? WoW mind blown LoL. That was a classic with a very yummy Brad Pitt;)

 

@mushforbrains said:-

She probably fascinated him as much as he fascinated her...

So hence the initial hesitant relationship... since they had to figure out whether her attraction to him was purely as a fan..

I like that the script pointed out that he couldn't do anything if she was a fan...as that would be taking advantage of her affections as a fan...

Ethics

 

I like your reasoning, 'cause I just didn't get the fuss really LoL. I thought Scarlett was overthinking (Ta-Mi as well) but for Scarlett she's intimidating to men so she attracts the wrong kind of guys. That is until Ji-Hwan of course. 

 

@thistle

I love Nagareboshi. 

As for my Top 5? Hmmm that's a tough one.

1. 1% of Anything

2.  New Tales of Gisaeng

3. Cheese in the Trap

4. Your House Helper

5. Something in the Rain

 

@gilaswan

And ahah it's fine I totally get what your frustrations are:D For me the men of Search:WWW seem so whipped LoL. I really do wish there was more to Ta-Mi's backstory.... I mean even if she fears marriage, Mo-Gan's foster parents are really chill so no need to fear unlike Ga-Gyeong:phew: And what 'bout Ta-Mi's family? So yea loads of details were overlooked.

 

I love Love 02O & Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms too! @savingrace

there was an announcement posted by tvn on their ig page but no English translation was available. May I know if there is any kind soul who can briefly explain what the post meant?

 

Binge watched the last 5 episodes over the weekend and loved the ending with all the 3 power ladies :love: 

There are certainly some loopholes in the drama which could be better but I still find it overall an enjoyable and interesting one. The show also share some interesting points on work ethics. And I still can’t believe the same actor for SJW was the actor in MOTA. The kid has talent!

@forwww Most likely won't buy it. Tempted as always but too pricey & takes forever to release (6 months I think). By that time I'd be over this drama. The fact that we're in such a high-tech world now, I kinda wish they sell it through web-download. I'd like the photo book to be in UHD digital more than printed because last time I bought a kdrama DVD set, the printings didn't come out very well. Their BTS & interviews weren't even HDs (just the drama itself is Blu-ray quality). It sure didn't worth USD$300.

Thanks for sharing this song. I really liked it. It’s usually played during SGG’s scenes. I think it first appeared when she was sitting alone by the bus stop crying and then Jin Woo came and sat next to her. It’s like her theme song

Top 5s are fun because it gives me some titles to add to my watch list.  :)  Nagareboshi was the first Japanese show that I watched "raw" because I absolutely could not wait one single moment for subtitles.  It still resonates with me:  love, trust, misunderstanding, protectiveness, and the importance of things not said.  Such a great drama.

Exactly!  The only one who manages to keep on being masculine in spite of this is Jin Woo.

 

I read a quote today where JKY said that, of the characters he has played, Morgan is most like himself.   And I thought, "oh no, I sincerely hope not!"

A lot.  The show had great characters and good potential but the writer dropped the ball.

I did wonder if the issue on government demanding access to users’ data and their justifications for it was inspired by the fake news bill in Singapore... and the ensuing question of whether ultimately citizens truly care what goes on on the internet despite all. GK said it quite succinctly — nothing gets deleted from the internet. Regardless, we still participate actively on it, do we not? Look at us here...

1. [+289,-1]
It's a drama that even has a perfect ending.. I hope there's season 2. 

2. [+198,-1]
Without looking at the ratings, this drama has a compelling storyline and dialogues, the actors are really good at acting, and a refined directing with cool OSTs.... 'Search: WWW' is really the best drama in the first half of 2019. The scriptwriter didn't slack off for the final episode. It's his/her first work, but it's really good. I really look forward to his/her next piece. I'll be sure to watch it. The ratings are really a pity. But I feel proud to be a viewer of this drama, it shows how much of a masterpiece this is. I just feel really sad that it's ended.... 


3. [+127,-1]
From the beginning to the end, the drama is really cool. The director, scriptwriter, actors have really worked hard to make that happen!! This is really my life drama. The scene at the end with Ka Kyung, Ta Mi and Hyun in the car was so cool. I'll be able to see this combination of actresses again the next time, won't I??


4. [+85,-0]
This is really the best ending... I think it's my first time watching a drama that's interesting till the end. 


5. [+79,-0]
I can't send off the 3 girl crushes. 


6. [+16,-0]
My life drama... Song Ka Kyung, Bae Ta Mi, Cha Hyun, they are life characters. Could you make a season 2, scriptwriter? Thank you for creating such a refreshing drama in this hot summer. Wednesdays and Thursdays without 'Search: WWW'.. I'm already feeling sad. I'm going to bingewatch this again tomorrow!


7. [+15,-0]
It was such a thrilling final episode!! I liked the solid storyline and the acting skills of the female actresses that have no flaws. It's a well-made drama! People who have not watched the drama, please watch it! And the directing? It's really good. The previous episode, they have put together 2 videos of Ta Mi and Mo Gun when they broke up. And this episode, it's November in the drama when they got back together, and they have something like cherry blossoms falling. That's left a deep impression on me. 


8. [+15,-0]
To be honest, this is the best. Agree?


9. [+12,-0]
I like that they showed Ka Kyung, Ta Mi, and Cha Hyun being happy!! I don't want to send this drama off.

1. [+247,-0]
Isn't the ending too cool.... ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ


2. [+215,-0]
The last scene where they were on the road without red traffic lights seemed to represent the 3 women's hearts. It was refreshing.. The scriptwriter's unique and refined writing, along with the director's artistic sensibility turned the drama into an eye-candy and ear-candy. This is really a good drama!!!


3. [+142,-0]
This drama has the best ending. ㅜㅜㅠㅠㅠㅠ The synergy between the 3 women is the best. 


4. [+97,-0]
The three are people I aspire to become! The leads and supporting characters are all really cool!! It's such a pity. 


5. [+89,-1]
Ha... Have I ever seen such a perfect drama? 


6. [+19,-0]
Thank you for ending it so coolly. I was wondering if Ta Mi is going to say "Let's get married" but they ended it in Ta Mi's style, I like it. The people who have worked hard for this drama, thank you~


7. [+18,-0]
You guys have worked hard~ This interesting drama.. doesn't have articles on trending. It's a drama that should be more popular. It's such a pity. 


8. [+15,-0]
The ending is the best!! The title of the drama was a goosebump-inducing plot twist. 


9. [+14,-0]
A perfect ending and perfect actors and perfect drama...

 

 

Korean netizens want season 2 which I do not mind as long as the script are good. However usually sequel have a mountain of expectations to climb.

 

I would love if they did a S2. There have been a few rare instances of a S2 for K-dramas. I love the world building, the characters, the dialogue, the tech web portal world, and etc. This show is so addictive but also the legacy it leaves on is going to be important. Hopefully we see more strong female characters and strong female bonds and friendships presented more often than just have it be a small plot line or two.

I wouldn’t mind a movie sequel but I don’t like the idea of S2. Everything seemed to wrapped up nicely with all the characters storyline already. I like how everything ended. S2 may be dragging the plot but that’s just my opinion. But I agreed with you about seeing more stronger female characters in dramas.

A movie is ideal although it's always better to keep the Best as is so that it remains special in our hearts. With sequel, there's also a matter of whether they would all reprise their roles. WWW won't be WWW if the main casts aren't the same. 

 

If this were novels though, I wouldn't mind reading a spin off for the other two ladies - overall the books would be an extension to the story of WWW but with a change in the leading ladies. Say the second volume would focus on CH as the female lead then the third volume, GG takes the center stage detailing her freedom after divorce, and her relationship with JW. Through these two extended stories, we would still get side-stories of how Tami & Morgan and all other lovely characters are doing etc.

That's true :( Though there's something about physical stuff, but having a digital copy has its perks too.

I think they need at least 1000 pre-orders for the blu-ray in order to get the dvd going. Fingers crossed... I'm just in it for the extra stuff HAHA

Be it a film or continuation of the show, I will take whatever form of media of this show lol.. Im Soo Jung and Jang Ki Yong had a great rapport with each other, and it would be cool if they reunite in the future.
