Is Manwol talking about the famous and most successful Asian football player Park JiSung?

He's now 39 years old in Korean age.

 

IU met Park JiSung before in SBS variety show Running Man in 2012.  

 

 

He also attended IU's first solo concert. (He made a promise with IU on' 'Running Man')

I also noticed this ... (video editing mistake?)

Speaking about the fan:

Actually,  there was 15-year-old BTS fan who passed away early this year due to bone cancer before she could attend to BTS concert,

She's Bui Deiu KL,  from  Hanoi, Vietnam. She's JungKook's fan.

Hmmmm...so could there be a possibility they're referring to that certain fan?

 

 

It's a possibility  because it parallels to situation of Veronica and Sanchez.

Veronica died before meeting Sanchez on their date and his surprise wedding proposal for her.

I have been reading comments on Dramabeans recap about HDL. There are some really harsh ones, and setting my feelings aside, I kind of agree with some of the views there about HDL - both positive and negative ones. Ah well, let's just hope the ending will make sense. That's just my only hope now lol

 

I also agree with some who think the grim reaper should be in the scenes more. There's so much wasted comic relief due to the absence of the reaper.

Missed opportunity!

To be honest, there's a lot of this in the series. Missed opportunity to build the romance. Missed opportunity for comic relief. Missed opportunity to strengthen the plot/narratives. Eeeeeh... but whatever though. Let's just enjoy the remaining episodes. :wub:

Yep, i was hoping CS gave MW a few neck messages when she complained of being tired and having neck pain... but alas, CS didnt... maybe both actors are still shy. 

 

 YJG's cheesy line of eating IU's earings have both of them laughing their heads off... but im sure both are still not that comfortable with skinship hence less touchy touchy :)

 

Nvm, cant want to see whats legandary about tonight's episode :)

 

MW calling CS on her IG on her latest update.... what will Mr. YjG reply :)

Episode 11 made me cried twice - aww re the Dad. Son and driver case. This kind of message is powerful as accidents like this happens more than you think and usually with negative impacts all around. Then the whole Sanchez and Veronica. I wasn’t expecting this to be the way Sanchez finds out about the Hotel and the truth by loosing V. However, I notice the parallel set up with MW missing CM right away. CM is def the firefly bug ghost and his part will come probably after the serial killer case. 

 

I get many fans wanting a flashy romance but I feel the way it is authentic to the two characters of MW and CS. This is just how they are and how they are tackling the relationship. I personally like this awkward, subtle and very slow progression of their relationship - we all know it has been based on emotions more than physical. But I do see hints that it will develop more as MW keeps on thinking about when CS hugged her or when she thought it was gonna touch her lol. 

 

One thing that is killing me is all the in your face reminders that our OTP can’t be together. I am torn: one side wants happy ending but the other side don’t want a cheap happy ending for the sake of it lol. It is interesting that MW and CS both know the chances of their ability to be together is zero but because of their emotional needs and feelings - they are going for it anyways but knowing that he has a task to send her off. Let’s see - I can accept a sad ending if ultimately it is done very well.

 

The only weakness of recent episodes is that there is literally too much crammed into each episodes and it slows the overall progression. They should have edited tighter and prioritized more key scenes and interactions. Like all the serial killer scenes were way too long when we have established the key bits about him already. 

Having said that, I am satisfied and enjoying the drama. My favorite K drama this year so far.

After watching episode 11, all i have to say: Episode 12 better truly be legendary especially with that kiss. 

 

I cried too much in this episode especially with Sanchez and Veronica. I know that some may feel we didn’t get much from their relationship however i was so saddened by it. These kind of things where people you love pass away so quickly does happen. And at times like that, it is heartbreaking to see. The ost made it even sadder for me.

 

But what is even more sad is MW and CS. These two makes my heart flutter and then break, too. :bawling: when CS says that it will be hard for him when he misses the moon but cannot see it! Omg! :bawling: Please don’t break my heart!

I think the CG is starting to get sloppy. 

Like one of us here point out about how the moon overlap the window, I also realize when they show the full shot of the hotel when CS brought Sanchez to the hotel, the moon doesn't look like it was on the sky, but looks like floating and rotating around the hotel, at the hotel's roof level. Well, thinking positively, maybe because each time they show the full shot of the hotel was by recycling the same shot shown in the first episode, I guess there are some difficulties to add in the moon due to the shot angle is limited for them to make it hang above the sky, and eventually it looks like 3D moon circling the hotel when broadcast on screen. 

Even though it's only the moon which seems like just a small part of the CG, but because the focus of the episode was total lunar eclipse, viewers would pay more attention to the moon and found in plain sight such error in CG. This makes me worry on the quality for the rest of the episode. My disappointment with the CG for the dragon in Hwayugi still remains. I hope the CG team could maintain the quality toward the end of the series. More so when the filming schedule is getting tighter which might cause them to rush things out. 

 

Regarding why the 4th Mago is dead set to get MW is because MW was supposed to be vanished by her long time ago because she was already a dead person who has a lot of grudge and have very high potential to harm human if she stays long in the world.  Although I may be the only person here to have changed my believe that MW was already dead when she found 1st Mago, I am not forcing anyone to believe as such too. It is just that, when I treat MW as another ghost too, but most powerful, fierce and spiteful among them (maybe with the addition of special ability bestowed to her by 1st Mago to deal with the ghosts), who have been the owner of the hotel for 1300 years, it answers a lot of questions for me. Just like the trio who have been there for 500 years, 200 years and 70 years.. with the difference that they remain to work at the hotel that long because of their unfinished business that keep them from going to afterlife, while MW was bound to the tree and to search for her own redemption. None of the people or plants in the hotel are alive, except GCS.  There were others too who might have worked there for 5, 10 years, but they resolved their grudge a lot quicker than the trio, so they went on (just like the scene when they move the hotel where one of the employee decided to get on the bus). MW is the only one that had the grudge in the longest time, and she never figure out anything from her time comforting the ghost because of her cynical view of the dead. Only when CS came in and his pure caring heart that took the story of the ghost attentively that MW start to learn things she never realize before. 

 

Back to 4th Mago,  for her, when you are dead, you have only 2 paths, either accepting death and get on the limousine or bus to the afterlife to reincarnate right away with no lingering feeling or complain (like the 102 years old granny and grandpa with dog), or remains in the world as a spirit with grudge which she would chase after and sent to underworld right away. That's why 4th Mago is complaining as to why 1st Mago letting an evil spirit like MW (from her perspective) to manage the inn. There is no concept of rest area for her. However, 1st Mago had different perspective. She want as many dead people to be comforted, be it small regrets or big grudge like room 13 ghost, and proceed to their afterlife to be reincarnated as possible and thus created the Guesthouse of the Moon for the dead people to gather and be comforted to let go of their grudge. MW happened to search for it and mentioned that she want to give her life to take responsibility for those people who get killed for her and killed by her (while only to realize later that she had already a spirit full of grudge). Since MW herself find the place intentionally to pay for her sin, 1st Mago made her responsible for every ghost that has unfinished business and comfort their grudge, with the addition that the hotel itself is MW fence and safe haven from fulfilling her own grudge by harming human (if she happened to encounter reincarnation of CM or SH). 1st Mago must have intentionally tied her to the tree and thus the hotel until she figure out the meaning of letting go of her grudge.. through learning from the story of the ghost she served at the hotel. 

 

But for 1300 years, 1st Mago sees no improvement to the tree which represent MW herself. Even with all the human manager in the past, I guess nobody dare to cross the line MW drawn to them. So, 1st Mago might have seen something pure in kid CS to be the person who will move MW heart and draw the good part in her that had been buried deep inside. MW who have never cared about being reincarnated, or getting entangle in fate or whatsoever about life cycle, had started to form bonding here and there through CS. She started to have friend like Sanchez, she crossed path with her past enemy and family, and she started to love someone. 

By gaining something, we will start to fear of losing it. Thus, CS has now become MW's biggest fear. By being in fear, we might act irrationally for the sake of that person. Therefore, CS could be the medicine, could also be the poison. As to which path they would take, they need to open up to each other and affirm each other's belief and find the compromising way. I don't need noble idiocy here or another abandonment. :confused:

 

However, I don't understand as to why CS must pay for the price in "unfair and unreasonable" way.

Is it because it is unreasonable for him to give his love to MW because MW is not a human to begin with?

Then, why did the 1st Mago opened the path to let CS in in the first place anyway? 

 

Pheww,, gotta end my rambling in abrupt. See you guys tonight!

Am very much anticipating for the legendary episode tonight! I hope we will get the answers to most of the questions that still remain. 

Can't wait for the release of Done for Me in few hours! :w00t:
