[Drama 2020] 365: One Year Against Destiny, 365: 운명을 거스르는 1년

Recommended Posts

I’m just glad they didn’t leave it open ended. Usually stories like this tend to do opening endings because I guess the writers think it’s cool to keep the audience guessing. I’m also happy that GH is alive. The girl has a knack for solving crimes. She and JH were great together.

i don't normally read live recaps preferring to wait for subs but i was just itching to read on anyway thanks @triplem

It seems like a happy ending but felt like it was a bit rushed. What was Hwang's crime for HJ to arrest him? hmmm be back tomorrow after subs are up.

So GH asks HJ a favor and HJ ask for her sign as a promise in return. I suddenly remember that I think while doing her webtoon before, she's been asking a certain detective's help... which was mentioned when she was talking to her new manager. So I'm going to assume that she'll be needing his help as a detective for her webtoon and the rest is all up to our imagination :)

 

I'm gonna miss these two :bawling:

Regarding HJ and GH, it looks like in all the prior resets they died together except this time when GH insisted on changing their fate. The fact that they were growing closer in one of former resets shown (where she was in a wheelchair) seem to imply  that they have a tendency to be drawn to each other. So in a way I expect that in this new reset they will eventually become a couple.

 

I’m feel a bit dissatisfied with the ending for Professor Hwang and SH. I have watched them do so much damage to the lives around them that I wanted to see them suffering. :sweatingbullets: Still, I like that Lee Shin at least decided to be brave in welcoming an unknown future for herself and her daughter.

I love the ending!! Everything is wrapped up nicely. But I have to say this final episode is quite rushed when comparing to the pacing of earlier episodes... and of course especially those last few minutes!! Too rushed!! Not enough!!!! Arrgghhh.... would it hurt to show us more of them, like maybe having a meal, coffee or something...

I know what you mean. But by the reset time, they haven’t done too much damage so maybe that’s why... 

 

Oh, one thing I wonder about. So SH didn’t end up getting killed by that prisoner who just got out, right? Because he wasn’t given the idea to do so by evil Prof.Hwang?

Overall, I thought it was a fantastic last episode and loved the ending.

 

As far as the baddies, I liked that Hwang turned out to be the evil mastermind and that LS was just his puppet. Quite sad that it was actually not her daughter’s fate to die that specific date/time, but Hwang killed her every year to manipulate LS emotions’ to reset. Thanks to GH though, her daughter was saved this time. It does not excuse her actions in any way, but I thought it was nice to see LS in a more human-like nature. She finally decided to help GH though she was too late. At least, she chose to take GH's advice to embrace the present and future in order to give her daughter the opportunity to live out her life. It seemed the only way she felt she could repay and thank the leads was to help HJ reset. She completely understood his ultimate reason to do so I was glad she explained the steps to him the best she could.

 

Finally, the leads - there was never any real romance, but their friendship was absolutely beautiful and genuine. GH knew that they would die together with HJ trying to save her so she made sure he was saved instead. I had wondered if the leads would be able to resist another reset to save the other. Putting myself in their shoes, I should have known that there would be no question that either would do it. The thing with HJ is that he wasn’t even sure if the path would lead to a successful reset or death, but he took the risk anyway. The part where he told GH told that she has him (as a friend) and to wait for him was a lovely and emotional touch. Back in time, GH has no memories, but I think it is better that she does not remember the dark times and is able to have a bright and fresh start. The most important thing to me was that HJ and GH reunited with each other. I had no doubt that they would rekindle their fate from there. Based on how they cutely interacted with each other, I will use my imagination that he understood what it felt like to lose her once before so with this second chance, he will definitely take their friendship to the next level. :wub:

 

@triplem Thanks for all the recaps and sharing the BTS. The leads really had amazing chemistry and it was clear off screen as well. I have liked NJH since Angel Eyes so am familiar with her real life personality. I have seen almost all of LJH’s projects, but it wasn’t until Lies Within and 365 where I became more familiar with him. Similar to NJH, he is a sweetheart too and his real self doesn’t seem much different from HJ. I think I better understand your fangirl heart. Also, he looked really handsome at the wrap-party. I really dig the hair. Will definitely be seeing him with a different pair of eyes in Stranger 2.

:love:

In short this reset thing was engineered by Hwang because he must have been bored and lonely wanting some fun. Well he is just as bad as SH. Song and LS was fooled by the old man and played his game. I don’t understand LS logic in wanting to reset over and over just to be with her daughter for a year and then go through the grief of her death. Isn’t that torture? 
The part where HJ resets again and meets GH was good. Overall i’m loving their ending. Will miss them and Maru too:joy:

I really wasn't ready for this drama to finish.

I have loved pretty much every minute of it... ok. loved every minute. I can somewhat understand from a plotting and pace perspective why they trimmed it but... omo. I wish we had the full 16 ep. i'd have watched it for the filler and potential fluff (hopeful romance).

I am not a fan of fillers, but the drama does need 1 or 2 episodes more to tie up the loose ends more nicely. I guess I still need sometime to digest the finale, but I will certainly miss this show, the brain churns we had, Maru and the cute police couple.

As long as HJ can do the damage control, it's fine for me. Though I am expecting more about the Professor's background and his rationale.... I get the god complex part, but I feel it's not full explanation of how he became who he is... I would wanna know at least why he felt so much pain and wanted to die at the first place [from what I understood from the finale, he committed suicide and accidentally found the time travel crack?] And the pharmaceutical background didn't tell us much about him either, it was just a convenient backdrop scriptwriters used to explain why he could control LS. And again, the rant I did about SH!! We need more about the photoframes! The documentary!

I actually believe the ending that the scriptwriters intended was to make HJ's Y-junction drive a cliffhanger. The final bits feel more like "fan service" for audience, for me it's suffice. Though I would hope to know some more details about the reset mechanism and how the professor learnt about that, among the other things about him and SH I pointed out above.

LS' arc is the one I liked most, not a superficial black and white character, selfish but with redeemable qualities. I am touched by GH's actions to deter her from further self-damage psychologically. Glad to see her able to move on.

From what I get, in the original timeline and the first 5 resets, neither HJ nor SH was killed by the prisoner. HJ was able to arrest the prisoner when he was trying to kill HJ. In the ending reset, HJ just let things go in the original way. [EDIT: wrong facts omitted]

Haha thank you for this fun BTS information!

The prof told her that there will come a time a cure will be found for her daughter. Maybe promising to help with it during every reset. Despicable old man! He lied to Song every time  that he would bring her the next reset, when the reset itself is only 365 days ago.

I thought her arc was the most complex, but well-developed from beginning to end. I liked her transformation from god-like, evil/sinister then finally to more human-like. Based on her interactions with her daughter over the episodes, there were glimmers that indicated that her heart was not all bad so I was glad it written to be true. She was selfish, but I think for an understandable reason. My favorite part of the last episode was how GH was able to make a final and positive impact on her. Very touching. I was pleased to see LS free herself and her daughter from the loop as well.

Final verdict.

I like the ending.

Though poignant and strangely romantic in the final moments. Haha.

Fate doesn't mean it can't be changed. Hmmmm....

 

And LJH, please go for a romantic lead role in your future projects. Your eyes are really expressive.

I have to say, this drama was one of the most complicated, unpredictable drama I have watched. Am glad our leads will have a happy ending. And to finally see LS move forward with her. It was sweet to see her and her daughter take the train she promised her. GH really saved LS in so many ways. She would be trapped a terrible fate forever. GH was HJ true partner. :heart:

 

Professor was complicated character we didn't get a background from his character.  Why he did what he did? Maybe he is such an evil person like SH.

don't skip, this is really good. your questions are the fun part guessing in the story

-------

I did not expect it, but this drama is now in my top 5. really interesting plot and execution. I tried watching the japanese version midway while waiting for episodes, and this korean adaption really did a good job in changing the story. masterclass in writing I must say. daebak!!!

A good ending, although I wished that we would have seen HJ acting with one of the former resetters. We were only seen how he managed to change all their fates by arresting Hwang and SH. Yet, BTJ needed help for his sister and as such, it would have been great, if we saw how HJ could change another fate.

 

As for Hwang, I assume that he became like SH because he had lost a goal in his life. First, he was suicidal which proves to me that he saw no meaning in his life... just like SH who got his promotion but felt empty deep down. Furthermore, the fear of losing his promotion due to an accident made him think that everything was futile and pointless. Hwang got entertained, when he saw he could toy with people's life. SH got thrilled, when he got aware that he could kill without getting caught. It was the same for Hwang.

Oh boy where do i start..

The thing I loved the most about 365 is the pace of this drama. Time traveling mystic thriller not the easiest genre to handle, yet this drama did it quite well. It just gets better with each episode, it makes you extremely curious about what will happen next. Soo many plot twists, so many gacha moments. We have new twists in every episode. If you think you guessed right, you probably didn't. I definitely didn't. 
Imo the 12-episodes format was definitely good choice for this story. I feel like if this had been a 16-episodes drama, the plot would've gone lost at some point. 
One of the biggest achievement of this drama for me  -  male and female lead - Ji Hyung Joo and Shin Ga Hyeon. Well them and definitely impressive cinematography.

HJ and GH what a powerful duo! Outsmarting everyone, defying time, fist bumping and dying for each other - that's theirs jam. There wasn't no classical drama romance tropes, but their relationship was something else entirely. And in the end i think it’s showing that it’s their fate to always meet with each other. The rest for them to decide.

I also have to shout out to the supporting actors performances because, without an excellent supporting cast, this show wouldn't be so good.

Overall what a ride, what an adrenaline-induced roller coaster ride))

Hats go off to the amazing screenwriters, director, actors, and the whole crew, who was behind this great show in these uncertain times. Bringing our jows down in spite of covid and all.

And thanks for all of you for the recaps, bts materials and theory making - this ongoing was fun :wub:.

P.S. 

See some of you soon in Secret Forest 2 tread))

You are welcome ~ I also saw it on Twitter. :D

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

"I don't think I have a friend like you. A friend who's willing to travel back in time to save me. I can at least make one friend who would before I die, right?"  ~GH

 

"You have me. I'm on my way."  ~ HJ

 

 

I knew that GH's words would be somewhat a foreshadowing that's why I love the ending. Some fates may change but GH and HJ meeting is absolutely their fate... may it be before or after the reset, they're meant to meet :blush:

 

 I also  agree that Professor Hwang's background is a little lacking but nothing is perfect. This would certainly without a doubt one of my fave K-dramas. Gonna miss uri fist bump couple the most and their dynamic :heart: Hope to see them reunite one day in a romance one :rolleyes:

Given HJ did try to help, he can only save the lady from further family abuse. Not much he can do about the liver transplant. Not much HJ can do much to SeRin either. She was quite mentally sick for long. The prisoner that had killed SH in 6th reset, I believe, has still managed to kill the procescutor and judge before being arrested by HJ as the original timeline did [so as not to arouse SH and Hwang's suspicion while lying low and collecting evidence against them].

Even with the aid of 1-year reset, it is impossible to control everything and play god; things can go astray, corrupting one's mind and get one addicted to multiple resets till one slowly lose humanity like the professor. I trust HJ already did what he can to minimize the damage/ deaths.
