I re-watched Episode 1 to 3 so far.  I have a question about LG at the police station in episode 2 and my thoughts about LG in an underrated scene in episode 3.

 

He was flirting with her since from the get go and easy to pick out imho that he was flirting with her that is why he mentioned the eyes. He was flirting with her all the way and didn't take the entire thing of being arrested serious

The Review Megathread on Reddit is up in case you guys want to share your thoughts about the show overall.  RIght now, the reviews so far are not so good so I'm so tempted to post my own review already (once I have gathered my thoughts).

 

Based on my reading of threads for previous shows, these types of threads skew sometimes negatively because  those who didn't like the show can freely post as well.

Why you even reporting an irrelevant persons opinion as if it matters here. We have like almost 8 billion ppl on earth we don't share same opinions and the thing is also that review said SK had high standard how about yeah no. Another thing if you go into the thread below with the finale post it's positive. So please don't pay attention to opinions only to yours and also an individuals opinion is not news worthy here.

 

If you want an opinion I can give you one right here

Chapter 3

  Hide contents

Chapter 3

 

The obelisk illuminated in red.

 

Lee Gon stepped out of the portal.

Standing a few meters away from the obelisk, Jeong Tae Eul's beautiful face emitted excitement and happiness. She ran up to Lee Gon, threw her arms around him with joy, and held him tightly. "The weekend is finally here," she exclaimed with excitement.

 

Amused with her childlike behavior like he always does, Lee Gon laughed and returned her hug. "I missed you too," he responded with a grin. He held on to her left hand and walked her back to the obelisk.

 

"I told my father that I will be out of town the whole weekend," Jeong Tae Eul said delighted smile.

 

"Excellent. I have sent Yeong and Seung Ah away for the weekend so there should not be anyone disturbing us," Lee Gon assured her.

 

Jeong Tae Eul nodded smilingly. "Would be nice to just spend time at your place eating, watch movies and watch dawn break," she said happily.

 

As Jeong Tae Eul walked along the long trail inside the portal, a thousand thoughts started running through her mind. "Is he going to propose to me romantically at the palace? If he does, what am I going to do? I know I can't live without him...but can I just leave everything in my world and be with him?" she asked herself worriedly. The more she thought about it the more nervous she became.

 

Lee Gon felt Jeong Tae Eul's hand turned icy. He remained silent and continued walking her to their destination. "She must be worried that I will propose to her in the palace and not sure how to react to it," he thought with a grin.

 

Upon entering the Kingdom of Korea, Lee Gon held on to Jeong Tae Eul's hand as they walked along the narrow and quiet walkway at the bamboo groove. "You have been quiet ever since we entered the portal. Stop thinking too much and enjoy the weekend here with me," Lee Gon whispered in Jeong Tae Eul's ear.

 

Jeong Tae Eul frowned at him. "Who said I am thinking too much? It is the cold weather that is making me feel unease," she rebutted.

 

Lee Gon grinned. "Alright. I will cook you something warm for supper then. I have soju and beer in the palace fridge too," he said.

 

Jeong Tae Eul's eyes beamed, smiling ear to ear. "Okay! You do the cooking and I will make the MSD!" she exclaimed with joy.

 

Upon exiting the bamboo groove, the couple took a stroll along the quiet street with Lee Gon leading the way. Jeong Tae Eul looked up at the twinkling stars above her in silence, still pondering about things without realizing where they were going.

 

After walking for a long period of time, Lee Gon raised his hand and ruffled her hair. "Stop thinking too much and worry about things that has not happen," he teased.

 

Shocked, Jeong Tae Eul looked at him with her mouth wide open. "Yaaa, you do know that its my hair that makes me pretty. How could you..." she uttered annoyingly, smacking Lee Gon in the back with her right hand.

 

Just as Jeong Tae Eul watched Lee Gon used his fingers to sort out her messy hair, she noticed that they are not anywhere near the palace. There were shops at the surrounding area. "How come we are here?" she asked confusingly.

 

Lee Gon laughed. "You must never over think when you are travelling. If I was a kidnapper you would be in grave danger," he said teasingly. 

 

Suddenly, three loud gunshots broke the silence of the night.

 

Both Lee Gon and Jeong Tae Eul simultaneously bent their knees and let out a cry of shock

 

Lee Gon took a quick scan the area. "The gunshots are coming from that side," he said, pointing toward a row of shops up ahead of them.

 

"What are we going to do now? Call the royal guards to come will expose my identity to them..." Jeong Tae Eul groaned nervously.

 

Two more gunshots went off.

 

Lee Gon held on to Jeong Tae Eul's hand. "Perhaps this is one of those things they we may have skipped in the past, fighting crime together," he blurted with a mischievous grin.

 

Jeong Tae Eul let out a soft laughter. "Let's do it."

 

The couple sneaked their way toward the direction of the gunshots. After moving 100 meters, they spotted a group of men in black suits armed with guns, taking cover behind three different vehicles, shooting at two other people taking cover behind a van across the road. Among the two people one was a male and the other a female.

 

Jeong Tae Eul watched with her eyes wide open in shock. "It's hyungnim!" she exclaimed, catching a glimpse of the male's face. The male was indeed her ex colleague Kang Hyeon Min.

 

Lee Gon closed his eyes and sighed annoyingly. "What is he doing here in the late night? I should behead him for interrupting us while we are dating," he insisted.

 

"We have to help him! He is outnumbered! The person with him may have been injured" Jeong Tae Eul insisted. The female crouching next to Kang Hyeon Min with her face covered by him had indeed remained still every since the couple arrived.

 

Lee Gon shook his head with another sigh. "You are asking you boyfriend to save another man's life without taking into consideration of your boyfriend's feelings," he grumbled.

 

"We are talking about someone's life here! I thought you want us to fight crime together!" Jeong Tae Eul retorted.

 

"Fine!"

 

The three men in black suits hiding behind a sedan took turns to shoot at Kang Hyeon Min and the female with him.

 

Lee Gon flung himself toward them, grabbed two of them by the head, smashed their faces against the sedan side window forcefully, forcing them to drop their handguns to the ground, as they fell unconscious.

 

Jeong Tae Eul jumped onto the third man from behind, struck the back of the head with her elbow and knocked him unconscious. She reached for the handgun which he had dropped to the ground.

 

Two other men hiding behind another sedan next to them raised their handguns, pointed it at the couple, and started shooting.

 

The quick Lee Gon held one of the unconscious man in front of him, rushed in front of Jeong Tae Eul and used the unconscious man to shield the bullets from the front. The bullets struck the unconscious man's chest and head.

 

Lee Gon and Jeong Tael Eul returned fire and shot the two men on the head. The speed of their hands and the accuracy of their shooting were exquisite.

 

Kang Hyeon Min popped his head out as he watched the couple take out his targets in surprise. He recognized Lee Gon, the king of his country right away. "Pheya? Who is the other woman with him? She looks exactly like Koo Seo Gyeong!" he uttered in disbelief as he looked at the unconscious Koo Seo Gyeong next to him.

 

Lee Gon and Jeong Tae Eul walked over to Kang Hyeon Min.

Kang Hyeon Min bowed at Lee Gon and subsequently held out his police ID. "I'm detective Kang Hyeon Min from the Serious Crime Unit 3, pheya. My partner and I were trying tailing these gangsters and we got detected by them.Thank you for risking your own safety to help us," he said, appreciatively, taking another quick glimpse at Jeong Tae Eul, still in disbelief.

 

"Hyungnim is still a police detective in this world. I guess he is fated to be a law enforcer," Jeong Tae Eul thought. She jumped in shock as she saw the unconscious female. "Lun..."

 

Lee Gon hurriedly cut in and said in excitement. "Could she be Jeong Tae Ra the long lost twin sister that you mentioned?" The name Jeong Tae Ra just popped into his mind as he remembered her as being amusing.

 

"Jeong Tae Ra?" Jeong Tae Eul and Kang Hyeon Min uttered in shock simultaneously.

 

Jeong Tae Eul stared at Lee Gon blankly for a few seconds before she grasped his meaning. Deciding to go with his flow so that things would not get worst, she ran over to the unconscious Koo Seo Gyeong to check on her injury. 

 

The left side of her stomach was bleeding, it was a gun wound. She placed her finger at Koo Seo Gyeong's neck and felt the pulse in the arteries of her neck. "She is still alive," she thought.

 

"Dongsaeng," she called out as she shook Koo Seo Gyeong by the arm, trying to wake her.

 

Lee Gon reached for his mobile phone. "We have a few people with gunshot wound in Gwangan dong. Please send the paramedics at once," he said on the mobile phone.

 

 

Where is the link?  Can you give me, I wanna read it.

I actually enjoyed reading the discussions on Reddit during the show's run.  I started reading about midway through?  The commenters there are very astute and a lot actually like the show.    Most of the commenters are not from SK, by the way.

 

It's a good place to read up on others' thoughts about the show, good or bad.  A little perspective is nice.  You might be surprised.

 

I was just posting here about it so the thread does not get overwhelmingly negative, so that there's a balance of reviews from those who like the show also.

The truth is that there is so many people and tastes differ from person to person. example right now MCU seems to have alot fans and the most consumed entertainment but they have very vocal haters who describe them as fast food etc etc. 

 

You often hear critical acclaimed what if I told you it's an illusion? What is critical acclaim dose it even have a criteria? No there is no criteria a few judges will put down the vote? 

 

Example: A poorly directed gay movie won the oscar perhaps I think for the best actor few years back? They said it was critically acclaimed and I was like what.. First of all not many people watched it because they couldn't bring themselves to it and second of all what is the criteria and they ignored way better actors and movies in that same year? Awards are politically motivated and not so much about art so whenever you hear the word critical acclaim it's a red-flag remember this. 

 

As western myself all the awards in recent years were politically motivated not based upon ''ART'' this happens in every single entertainment

Lol it’s Friday.

 

There’s no new episode.

 

You know the common phrase that people overuse but it means nothing?  My body is ready? 
 

It literally was - I woke up every Friday after falling asleep at 2am, lively and ready to go at 6am without an alarm.

 

Today I crashed SO HARD.  It’s 9 and I’m crawling out to get to work.

Why did he suddenly say "I don't know about anything else but I  know I have charming eyes. Born with deep set eyes " , in the midst of explaining about Einstein Theory. It was strange and did not make sense why he just put in that statement. I am sure LMH must have cringed making that statement.  I can't figure it out.  Anyone here can come up with a reason why LG suddenly said that in the middle of explaining something else ????  He is a logical fellow so that felt so out of place.

It was in response to what JTE said a few seconds earlier that his eyes are those of a criminal.

I've rewatched that stupid scene so many times that I think my brain is making stuff up to supplement what we saw, but I'd like to add:

 

LG: He's very calculated and logical, and is used to those around him treating him respectfully and appreciating what he has to say.  He also likes to "science-splain", and those around him are pretty much forced to listen to his boring dissertations on math and science.  So he's getting ready to science-splain, and JTE insults his eyes.  It's actually really funny watching him begin his lecture, has probably his first ever reaction to someone insulting him straight to his face, take a moment to compute WTF just happen, and then start arguing with her on that.  We can see that he didn't even recognize the insult straight away, and was so shocked by what he heard that he immediately fritzed and went 404 not found and started arguing with her.  What's even funnier is that he grows to enjoy her insulting him to his face.

 

I think it set the tone for their partnership.  Until then, he still had a very relaxed tone to all of her insults and her treatment of him, but that was the moment she knocked him down to her level and he started arguing back. It was the great equalizer moment in their relationship.

I used that as an example and I agree the word may be little bit  exaggeration but it was just an example. He liked being pushed around by her and being insulted. He had a thing for that
