There are no soilers in this show at this point when you consider the type of spoilers we had early on

 

I agree we had some ridiculous spoilers:joy: It's mostly due to the pedestrians who over saw the drama getting shoot live and they just couldn't resist filming everything

Is it possible for them to shoot on secret locations or is that logistically impossible because people is everywhere except on a vacated island where there is no people at all

I mean villains can be cute. Luna makes a very cute villain, as cute as JTE. :lol:

 

 

Maybe you should've put up a LR/PM ship display. :joy:

 

I ship LR/PM

I pretty much agree people is everywhere so unless you go to unpopulated areas but then the drama losses genre and turns into period drama so you need people

WDH really deserves the best supporting actor award at baeksang 2021. His double characters just simply splendid and he nailed them!

 

i didn't realize JY and ES were the same actor until much later in the show and I wasn't on this forum at that time. Somehow i found out and when i watched again, i was like holy richard simmons. This guy is amazing.

I rewatched the Shin Jae scene and I realized something - he’s not telling her how he feels because he wants her to love him back and stay with him - he’s making a plea with her to save herself and let him go die instead.  He’s wants to do that because he loves her too.  Both men only want HER to live, with no regard for themselves. 

This biss gets two men like this and I can’t even find one to buy me a seafood dinner.

 

Which takes me back to my point - I am SURE that SJ will be marching in behind JY and LG on the night of treason :) 

 

I JUST WANNA BE RIGHT 


Yep and instead of JY, I guess it could be SJ who would sacrifice himself in the end.

 

That kinda explains why he got so much scene and character exploration in the whole series.

If LG and JY go back in time to save young LG and kill off LR before he can travel to ROK and murder LG's doppleganger and his family, then I can assume none of the incidents and chain of events in the future will happen. Here's what I predit as possible outcome in episode 16.

 

Possible outcome: JTE never meets LG but meets LG's doppleganger in ROK. She doesn't keep her past memories. He doesn't know her, but they both seem to have a connection.

I am guessing that the second round, its going to be LG, JY, JTE and SJ together. Because SJ loves JTE, and I just don't see him letting her escort LR alone through the portal alone.

7) They catch LR. Don’t ask me how SJ made it that far. Wasn’t he supposed to have been frozen? Lol. But it is what it is. 

 

 

Not sure if this has been commented, for point 7.

Time was unfrozen then.

Hence the moment LR tried to shoot LG again, bang!

His leg was shot and everyone screams.

I wish JY aim for the heart but they needed him.. *shrugs*

But thanks to Luna, JTE can meet him and make him stay longer. And I wonder what is JTE asking her to steal? Was it the flute half or what? The flute is with SJ.

 

Like you do, I need to finish the backreading, I'm in page 736, still stuck in the past here.  :sweatingbullets:

 

Are you in present already? This is me.. from the past finally catching up on your post.

 

Wait for me... I'll be there soon :joy:

Just by looking at this picture made me teared up again.

I don't mind that he confessed his feelings to JTE.  He spent years hiding his feelings, and has no oppositions to JTE/LG together at this point.  He respects that he lost. But LG has already made it clear that he's going to die to save the world.  SJ and JY both offered to go to the grave with him.  And now JTE is declaring that she will do it.  SJ will let LG die to fix the world, and he'll let himself die, but he won't let JTE die.  But he still chooses to do the right thing - he honors and respects her decisions.

 

 

Sorry for cutting your post short but this is what I felt with regards to SJ too.

I don't hate/like him but I'm intrigued on his backstory. I'm constantly worried that he will turn his back on JTE but man.. this boy is loyal to JTE through and through.

When he declared his love to JTE, man.. I'm heartbroken for him but he still honors and respects her decisions.

THIS... THIS IS WHAT BROKE ME WHEN HE TEARED.

Not just with JTE's pleading.  But based on his emotions.

It was just on point!

WELP. I better use the next week to stock up on tissues in preparation for the finale 

 

Someone gave an idea of beach towel. :joy:

I guess it's more cost effective this way since I've pretty used A LOT of my stash watching episode 15 again and again.

I just hope episode 16 don't require the use of any at all.

Wait are we going to get an ending where we see the alternative timeline where LG and JY goes back to save  young LG but also kills LL which saves LG's doppleganger from dying as a child, and he grows up to be an adult. Young LG grows up not knowing who JTE is because he never got the nametag, and therefore never went to ROK to meet JTE in Episode 1. Time jump to  2022, JTE has no memory of LG but suddenly meets LG's doppleganger and feels some kind of connection. Ending the series.     

 

Nooooooooooooooo!

I'll swear off watching any KES drama if that's the ending.

Did that scene take place in 2022?

 

 

Come to think of it.

That cctv footage of JTE in front of the bookshop and yoyo kid looking right at all of us...

Is that a sign to tell us all that all is good..

The King is still watching the cctv of his Queen since he basically can't go out as freely as her? LOL **optimism coming back** :joy:

But he's been dealt the worst hand in this entire show.  

 

But the choices that he makes are always good.  He has the opportunity to become a gang member or to find a better path with JTE.  He chose JTE.  All those times that JY and LG asked him for help, he complained and rolled his eyes, but he did it.

 

I don't mind that he confessed his feelings to JTE.  He spent years hiding his feelings, and has no oppositions to JTE/LG together at this point.  He respects that he lost. But LG has already made it clear that he's going to die to save the world.  SJ and JY both offered to go to the grave with him.  And now JTE is declaring that she will do it.  SJ will let LG die to fix the world, and he'll let himself die, but he won't let JTE die.  But he still chooses to do the right thing - he honors and respects her decisions.

 

I wish we had gotten this earlier in the show - the sheer POWER when LG and JY have when SJ joins them is incredible.  In a different lifetime, SJ could've been another JY.  He has the ambition, moral goodness, and ability to have worked himself out of the slums in KOC to become a trusted friend to the King, if he had the opportunity.

 

 

I am a blabbering mess again.

That footage might become Luna but she's no longer a criminal in the new timeline.

One more episode to go, and here are two questions still unanswered:

 

1. What exactly is LR's evil goal? To be king of KOC? That would be the most basic understanding, but what was his plan? I initially thought he was building an parallel army to be in imported to KOC for a rebellion but it doesn't seem like it. So was it for the flute? But then for what? When he knelt before LG, he said now you can get "eternity and infinity". But what exactly is that? To live in the in between world forever? Why is that attractive? Or is it both? To be the Eternal Monarch? And so what was the plot to present LG's mother still alive at the Memorial Service and declare that a parallel world exists? What is that meant to achieve? 

 

2. Now that we understand SJ's role, the role that still puzzles me is KSR. What was the purpose of the role? Was she just a pawn for LR, to get the king or the kingdom? I thought from the end of the last episode that with LR eliminated in a timeloop, she would turn out to the bigger antagonist. But Ep 15 still presents her as a pawn and a victim. So was she nothing more than a pretty second lead that poses a potential threat of stealing LG. But she was never a real threat.
