Yeah I was also very impressed with the action stunts/fighting scenes she did here... her moves has gotten really amazing. 
Immense improvement... and LDH has no double too right? it's actually him? great synchronicity these two have..some moves were kinda fast and dangerous there...and they did them smoothly. wow.

Seriously how come that all guys in the hotel are so dense   I mean the girl hints    and hints    and HINTS    and hints some more  I mean EVERY

Ohmygod they're going official!   And oh no! Im Si Wan sent YJG a food truck and YJG replied, asking should he book room 404 for him...  

Sorry If someone already had posted this topic before   The Cards In The Intro/Opening Goo ChanSeong's Card   Jang ManWol's Card   Number of Cards  

Omooo.. I've only been away for few days from this thread and it hits page 95 already! Another 5 pages we will reach 100 mark! :w00t:

 

And what's with that plagiarism accusation? LOL! 

The press already mentioned that Hong Sisters has kept this drama for many years because the technology in CG at that time could not translate on par what they imagine for the hotel, even before the drama airs. 

The director also slightly mentioned about it again during the press conference. How is it the script that has been planned and available for many years plagiarizing a recent work. Even the synopsis not even close! Were they even in the right mind to nitpick about the red garb and veil as plagiarism? The garment has been showed a lot in Sageuk drama though. The scene the bride killed the groom also is nothing new. Cham na.. -_-

 

My work deals closely with plagiarism issue, I had such a good laugh with those aspects they accused as plagiarism. Clearly they don't understand what plagiarism really mean and they even translate creative inspiration or interpretation as plagiarism as well (just like what happened to Hwayugi). Pffftt! 

Last week, after episode 10 I saw a post somewhere showing that live streaming for the episode in a Chinese live stream site hit the highest number of live streamers ever. I guess some people are just being sour and bitter of the popularity of HDL in China OR maybe they just want to ride the popularity and create issues to gain attention or hits. Either way, this creates more buzz to the drama and people who didn't know or watch it will be curious about the drama and start to watch it (and surely they will eventually hooked..LOL!)

 

BTW, on the side note, the director said in the press conference that if IU didn't accept to work in HDL due to her schedule conflict, they will abandon the production completely because they only send the script to IU. They will start the production when IU is available. The director and Hong Sisters were dead set to have IU to play JMW after they watch her performance in My Mister, to the point persuading her to give a try to JMW character. I don't know if he was just joking since he talked about it with his cute eye smile, but it looks to me he was serious when he said they only sent the script to IU while IU was considering it as one of the script she got. :lol:

Jieunie always make us wonder and asked  "does She really same person "(her images is clumsy, fragile and a cute poker face:))

how she developed skill fighter is terrifying her strength and beautiful movement the ways she hold swords, dagger and arrows is precisely pro.

Seems Yoga made Jieunie found her body and inner balances growth.

Indeed Jieunie absorbs the meanings of limitless thou.

Be a WATER!

Yeah... remember that time of SBS reality show "Heroes"... Hahhha IU was so adorable but really clumsy and so funny specially if there's sports or challenges... but look at her now.  Many says yoga is really an amazing thing to learn.  It tones muscles, improves flexibility, and stamina.

Hmmm that's strange. I thought it was offered to Jun Ji Hyun (who is also a good choice based on how she acts like in MLFTS and LOTBS; her quirkiness fits MW's too) first but she turned it down? Or maybe it was the Hong Sisters who offered it to Jun Ji Hyun but the director's only choice was IU. Either way, good choice and IU is nailing the character well.

TvN Asia has broadcast the first two episodes last week, and I am now rewatching it using tvN Asia platform... I don't know is it just me or did I not watch the episode properly before this from the online site, I suddenly realize more details from tvN Asia "version". The video seems clearer and kinda in different shade(?) compared to the online site, the subtitle is more precise too, like the Khitan (Goran) and Mohe people from Mago question to MW from where she came from.

 

And this is the most shocking realization for myself... I am not sure about everyone else in this thread, but all this while I actually believed that MW is still alive when she was punished to be the owner of Guesthouse of the Moon. Rewatching from tvN Asia platform made me realize she's already dead! The scarf she wore to cover her face was bloodied! She found her own way there to the guesthouse and met Mago as she's already dead. A spirit! OMG, my sister is laughing at me for being misunderstood all along. Ah! Mago's words about her time will flow again when the flower bloom clouded my mind to not revisit the details in the first episode! LOL! My sister laugh at me for having misunderstood the concept about MW all wrong from the beginning. She said, if she's a human who has not died and stayed alive for more than 1300 years, why would that 4th Mago being so anticipating of MW becoming ashes.. only spirit of dead people who become evil and harm human will turn into ashes. Then she even tease me, what did you write so diligently in the drama forum all this time while having the wrong conception all along. Haaaaaaaa... :tired:

I'm gonna rewatch more episodes from tvN asia platform from now on. Even if the drama already finish its Korean broadcast, I will rewatch it using the platform..to see if I missed other small but important details.  :grimace:

 

I'm still in shock. :joy:

*facepalm*

Yeah maybe, that's why I said I'm not sure whether he is joking or serious. Maybe they decide on both of them, and since Jun Ji Hyun turned it down, they left only with IU. And if IU also turn it down, they maybe put a halt to the production as he stated. But, I doubt it would go to such extreme though, right? Yeah, he may be just joking about putting it on hold. :joy:

But IU said in her interviews that Man Wol is human, not a ghost. Like in this one:

So in effect, she’s still human albeit with special powers (that comes with the curse of running Del Luna), not dissimilar from CS who can see beings from the spirit world. Yes? No? 

 

Overall, she is still a human. But I get where the confusion is from since Chan Sung referred to her from earlier episodes as a ghost, how he finds it funny to see a ghost putting a seat belt on :D..and the 4th Ma Go is like waiting for her to become a vengeful spirit (which I assume you become only if you're a spirit or a ghost?). So yeah, maybe she's in between a ghost and a spirit as she's too powerful for a human.

What is YJG doing hanging around on set in his Harry Potter glasses on his off time? :lol:  And I guess catching car keys is something they don't teach you in Harvard. Aww, Madame Choi is as caring off-cam as she his on-cam. Poor Yeon Woo,  he gets no respect in the old times. :lol:

 

Awww...I find that sweet how he finds time to visit even if it's his day off. Some actors do that too, mostly to show their moral support to their co-stars. And I love that YJG is keeping up! :D

Team Chan Seung  OR  Team Chung Myung

 

 

 

I think if CM character did not turn out that way, for me personally he' could have been a  very strong contender..hahhhha... he first got me in that scene when they fell off the horse and he uncovered MW 's face, and like how he was so mesmerized and stunned by her beauty

 

If his character was not depicted as shady in the latter part, I would have been wavering from him to CS, and back again..... but that tragic episode of Yeon Woo kinda put CM character off for me. :mellow:

 

I would still be Team Chan Seung all the way even if CM didn't do what he did...he he...but yes, the chemistry between him and MW when CM first laid eyes on her is sparking. I mean, IU always has the best chemistry with whoever she pairs up with...even Yeon Woo :)...lucky girl, she's getting all the men in this drama....HAHAHA...

Apart from the OST there's other music in the show. Couldn't find any discussion or any list on the internet. Anyone know? XD

 

You mean like the BGMs? I don't think they usually releases it while the drama is still ongoing. Normally, you can find them after, if someone compiles all of them.

Hmm... it just seemed as if she didnt pull the tip of jacket forceful enough, to make it fall off... 

 

But nvm, i will let it slide and enjoy the drama... hehe

 

Im team ManChang! :D

 

HAHAHA...well, she's a powerful person, so....maybe even if it doesn't seem so, it will appear as it is :P

Maybe doing yoga helps her to do her stunts more gracefully too :D...

Because if she is a human, that defies the reason turning into ashes when she harm a human. A human harming another human will get wordly punishment, not becoming a target by 4th Mago who can't wait to turn her into ashes. Only a spirit who lingers in the world and harming human in the process will be vanished.

I don't think anyone in the show has said as yet that she (in her present state) was going to be dusted for harming a human. In the 7th episode Dark Mago said (as translated) "she will be sent to the afterlife as an evil spirit," so that's not dusting; I think that's just being reincarnated as hangover soup. The dusting scene was Chansung's fear; it wasn't necessarily a vision.

Yeah indeed, not many female leads are this shippable .. hahha meaning someone who can create natural and flowing connection & chemistry with her partner.  

 

Me, i would have regarded both CS and CM equally, but CM has become a baddie ...and well there can only be one male lead...hahha

 

Yoga

It is really amazing, i've tried some basic sessions before and it has helped me a lot too. I'm glad IU has learned and practices yoga.

Team Chansung all the way! I never really found Smirkalot attractive; to me he looked like a run-of-the-mill flower boy. And he was way too slick from the start; that's the kind of guy that you think is so cool when you're young and naive, but in the end he's just going to give you grief. (And boy did he ever give her grief.) As for Chansung...get you a man who's seen the very worst part of you and still decides he wants to stay with you and support you. :)

I forget where I saw in a teaser, she said "I just existed" I believe she is a human that her time stopped and she can't die even if she want to because she has some super power, and I believe 4th Mago was referring that she will become evil spirit after she died.

I'm not really referring to any scene, I am talking about the concept. Don't forget she nearly harm Mira before CS saved her, else, if Mira ever died because she can't withstand the overwhelming curse by MW, those deities especially the 4th will surely go after her. The 4th won't do anything to her if she is a human, just like those filthy video cam jerks and the serial killer. That's why, 2nd Mago said to CS that it was not MW that protecting him, CS is the one who protected her (from the 4th Mago as she become the evil spirit who harm a human - Mira). Besides, during CS first visit to the hotel, Bartender Kim did mention that out of all ghost in the hotel, MW is the worst one. 

 

Okay, I may have unnecessarily bring up the debate about whether MW is still a human or actually a ghost/spirit. Hahahaha. :phew::rolleyes:

I am in no intention to fight anyone about it. It's just difference of opinion.. and I am stating my opinion that MW is already dead when she first found Mago. I am changing my stance that she's already a spirit. 

Because that would cleanly explain how MW found the Guesthouse of the Moon, and the meaning behind some of Mago's words when MW draw her sword to Mago (from tvN Asia subtitle):

 

MW: Tell me. I'm trying to do right by the people I have killed. 

Mago: How will you take responsibility for other people's lives when you can't even take care of yours?  (I look carefully the tone and the expression Mago had here, she seems questioning, how would MW take responsibility of her dead gang when she herself already get killed)

MW: I said I would cut your tongue off if you didn't stop with the drivel. Just tell me how to get there. So long as I can get to the dead, I can even kill myself right now.

Mago: I pity you for your vain belief that your own life will settle the score.

MW: This life of mine is all I have left to give.

Mago: The Moon Inn is where the dead gather together. The wandering dead find their way there on their own.

(I noted the change in MW expressions here upon hearing this)

Then the scene when the ghost soldiers riding horse coming.. if MW is a human, she wouldn't be able to see those ghosts, and also the ghosts of her gang. She haven't even bestow with any special ability when she first met Mago. 

Then flashback to the scene where MW fought those soldiers. Then she picked up her bloodied scarf, and the scene back to where she met Mago, she hold the scarf and came into realization that she's already dead. 

MW: Is this it? Did I kill everyone and become a spirit with a grudge to find my own way to the Moon Inn? 

 

I think MW's vengeance was so strong that she didn't realize her soul already left her dead physical body. Just like CS's dad didn't realize his soul left the body that on the verge of dying because all he could think was running away.

True. Which is why I like him a lot. He also had a chance to run away after discovering what MW did in the past and seeing her being angry, bossy, unforgiving and prideful but he still chose to stay and protect her. I like that he understands where MW is coming from, that she's like that because of her past and that she's actually really a good person.

I think this is because 4th Mago is expecting that when MW meets CM again, she will do something horrible that will make her a vengeful spirit like the woman who was victimized by the hidden camera. The other Mago chose CS to enter MW's life because she thinks CS is capable of protecting MW, meaning he can stop MW from doing horrible things that will make her a vengeful spirit. 

 

Since someone else raised the idea that perhaps MW is a ghost (which I don't believe as yet because so far we all know she is human whose time has stopped), what if MW really is a ghost and she can't move on not until she realizes that she is one. It's unlikely but could be a plot.
