Speaking about Room 404 

404 in Hangeul is   "사영사" (Sa Yeong Sa)

 

4 사 sa  - another meaning  is  "death" ( "死"  in  hanja )

0 영 yeong - another meaning is "forever/ eternal" ("永" in  hanja )

                    - it could also mean "spirit" ("靈" in  hanja )

 

Based from this meaning, it's possible that the people who entered in that room will die and become a spirit/soul 

 

0 is between two 4's (two 4's are blocking the 0) - the soul  will be trapped and remain there forever / for all eternity

Oooh that's one way to look at it. But if in a way, humans are "eliminated" because of their curiosity, would that be considered bad karma for the hotel? Although we all know that "curiosity killed the cat". (pun time! Ba dum tss.) And the people might be doing it "willingly/voluntarily/unknowingly". So bad karma doesn't count in this case? Hmm. I hope Hong Sisters address this room in their plot.

Ooh, and we know that CS was the 0 choice.  CS stuck between 2 deaths? Lol.

 

Just wanted to post my take on the escaped ghost in terms of my golden bough/Diana theory a few pages back.  The most famous Diana myth is the myth of Actaeon, a man who peeks at chaste Diana while she's having a bath.  Diana in her rage, impulsively transforms him into a stag, and his own dogs tear him to pieces.  

 

And now we have a vengeful Ring like ghost operating in a very specific way, inviting men to pornographically peek at her.  And if they do, she presumably sends them insane or kills them.  So we've got yet another parallel to the Diana myth but with the Hong Sister's very enjoyable take on this base.

 

As I stated before, and others of you have as well, each of these ghost cases relate back to Man Weol.  For me, I see them relate to her as an avatar of Diana, in particular, but other myths cling as well. Regardless we can see her persona in each.  She does have a bad temper, she can act on impulse, I can definitely see her as vengeful.  So is ghost 13 not only a ghost she has to contain or eliminate as an external 'spirit" but in her internal "spirit" as well?

 

We could maybe do a list of these things she needs to learn or reflections of her persona.  I know at bitchesoverdramas one was started but I'd have things to add.

 

1. Memory gets twisted (the blind ghost). Is her memory twisted?

2. The tiger and the painting.  She's like the tiger, dead but alive, just standing in place because she has no place to return to - it no longer exists? (Just to point out here, as well, that the landscape painting of a lake is very close to Diana's Mirror, the lake at her ritual site at Nemi in Italy).

3. The red string was cut.  Is this why she believes CS can't be the Captain - was the tie between her and the Captain cut in the past so he would never reincarnated s her soul mate?  But Ma go has 'made a path' again? My instinct but could be many other interpretations.  Yours?

4. The old man and the dog.  Foreshadowing?  How is this related to MW?  (I'm tempted to do another Diana analogy because she is so associated with hounds, but I can't place anything exact.)

5. Can't forget the raging vengeful spirit at the beginning dressed in armour.  

 

Anyway, just spitballing, but love your take.

Could it be The guest who check in at room 404 is CS friend whom death by accident?

And because MW could foresee future,  she locked the ghost who have grudge to CS in room 404?

Seems the writers has to work smart to tidying the story entering to mine story. Serving bickering to long and to much side story ignoring the mine story flows could made audience seeing the hole on the mine plot thou, up to now we even not sure who's actually CS or the staff(3 of them have undisclosed interesting story) when they're actually the mine Character.

Tomorrow is crucial steps to prevail the story wish the coming episode might satisfied viewers, engaged more to enjoying HDL.

I n Gothic Lit, which I studied, you can often identify the main female protagonist with the house itself, and each character in the house is a reflection of one o r more aspects of the main character.  This is of course a ghost story and is an example of the Gothic, so I do think the sisters are very cognizant of the ghosts reflecting aspects of MW.  I've already said the tree is her, but the inn was made from the tree - the Hotel del Luna is Man Weol.  The characters act separately but also as part of her.  CS is the only exception.

 

I was really reminded of Jenny's Song from Game of Thrones.  A much more melancholic take, of course (though I am expecting some tears in future episodes), but the same in that I suspect these are Man Weol's ghosts, just as Jenny's are hers.  Here are the lyrics:

 

High in the halls of the kings who are gone

Jenny would dance with her ghosts

The ones she had lost and the ones she had found and the ones who had loved her the most

 

The ones who’d been gone for so very long

She couldn’t remember their names

They spun her around on the damp cold stone

Spun away her sorrow and pain

 

And she never wanted to leave

Never wanted to leave

Never wanted to leave

Never wanted to leave

 

They danced through the day and into the night

Through the snow that swept through the halls

From winter to summer and winter again

Til the walls did crumble and fall

 

High in the halls of the kings who are gone

Jenny would dance with her ghosts

The ones she had lost and the ones she had found and the ones who had loved her the most

 

And she never wanted to leave...

For me I think that this will be MW's lesson as well - do you let go or insist on holding onto "him" (be it the person from her past life or this life's CS)

The most I can relate to would be MW asks CS to see her off as his final guest, but he follows her too? The thing is no one mentioned when is she his last guest. He could be there till the end of his life and leaves with her (that would be incredibly bittersweet)

the hotel will disappear when MW is being sent off (in a limo? haha but i dun think she has done much good deeds :lol:) until a new owner is found then the hotel will reemerge again.. till then, Yoo Na will be the experienced manager!! or, she could take over MW role too

and i dun think CS will just die and leave with MW.. thats really too much to ask for, MG should not be doing this!

Lol I don't mean he somehow dies and then follow her, more of IF (a super duper big IF, Like HUMONGOUS IF)  happens, he will work there for life to be with her until the day he himself crosses over, and together with him, MW leaves HDL. So basically they get to spend an entire lifetime together. 

 

But I don't think Hong Sisters like to write this way anyway.

MW will drink so much champagne n eat so much caviar that the hotel goes bankrupt.. the hotel staff have no choice but to go to afterlife.. and MW and CS will ride on the donkey to another deserted place to restart the HDL business.. :D no i’m sprouting nonsense.

who knows, the room 13 ghost might cause trouble in the human world.. possessed MR to seduce CS.. MW will come to his rescue on the account that he is her employee (like hey MR, keep your hands off my CS!).. got knocked some memories back and.. i dunno how to continue my assumption.

maybe we can continue a better guess after this weekend episodes lol

Okey ... i am so 6 episodes late :lol:

 

My previous soompi account - had password problem hahha.  I have been demoted into a noob.

 

IU's so Glamorous in HDL

 

So beautiful. So fashionable. Hairstyles on-point.  And her attires are so iconic (fav so far is her audrey hepburn-breakfast at tiffany's-look).   
A total contrast to her dreary, haggard oversized coats as JiAn in my mister.  Though both characters are ruthless ...hahha.

IU is at her most beautiful here, really... i luv it.  
love0010.gif

 

Man-Wol's complex character

 

She had been existing for so long, been through a lot as shown in the back-story , flash-backs.  But there are instances at the present time, that she's just sooo hilarious. And I wonder what made her so materialistic and cunning when it comes to money.  I mean the Man-Wol of the past seems so practical and level-headed.

 

A Thousand years old

 

Hahha...her knees should be weak i agree, should not run on high heels :lol:

Anyway i cannot help but associate with it, her Hae-soo reincarnation, and her seeing herself as the 1,000 year old JiAn.  Plus the real IU they say is an old-soul too. 

 

This DRAMA gives me the feels...

 

It reminds me of so many things all at once... hahha..  Hotel Transylvania... Addam's Family... The Corpse Bride... Maleficent. And a little bit of Beauty and The Beast...because of the stolen flower from the garden.

 

Chang Sung   VS  Chung Myung

 

My gosh ...these guys love0023.gif i am torn who is more hot ???

The MBA-boasting dorky hotel manager or the General that catches fireflies

 

Yeo Jin Goo has surprised me here, I thought that being a younger male-lead would make him appear like IU's baby-brother hhaha..but wow he's all grown-up, and with that big manly voice too. 

 

But Lee Do Hyun, is one hot sexy General hahhha....  really made me very curious of this actor.  As Chung Myung he can easily steal the limelight in this show.

 

NO SAD ENDING PLEASE 

 

With them putting in comedy and funny moments in this drama...and also blending in with some fairytale elements here and there....so hopefully no tragic ending please.....please ....

 

But that dream of Chang Sung is unsettling though... where he see's Man Wol in a room (is that a royal wedding garb she's wearing?)...but she seems wounded as blood is dripping from her hand.

 

Still I want a prince or general or an MBA-manager saving her from whatever spell or curse she's under.  And they will live-happily-ever after.

 This is off tangent, but everytime I see Hotel Del Luna in its short form HDL I automatically think of this super famous hotpot restaurant chain HaiDiLao (HDL as well).

So when I read the above "MW and CS will ride on the donkey to another deserted place to restart the HDL business.." I have to constantly remind myself it's a hotel not a restaurant chain. LOL.

On a more serious (?) Note, it's the WEEKEND!!!!! WOOOO HOOOOO Hotel Del Luna!

The 1,000 yr-old JiAn has visited her  Hoogye-dong neighborhood as Man -Wol,  hahhha so cute.

 

"JiAn, have you found comfort?"

 

Well, she runs a very unique hotel now, eats caviar, drinks champagne and drives luxury cars. No more left-overs for her now.

A nice compilation by TVN of Man Wol x Chan Sung bickering with/annoying each other. I love them so much. :tears:

 

It's also interesting to see how IU becomes more comfortable and campier as Man Wol. :D
