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

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looking at some spoiler cuts tonight on MBC’s YT account . It was very good and lived up to my expectations  . Pace was fast & storytelling was pretty coherent. Chemistry btwn the leads was evident. 
 

Our handsome detective is fast :joy:. Think he’s a big fan of our webtoon writer 

 

  BTS

 

I’ll try to recap in a bit from memory what I saw & piece together from the cuts

Just a rough recap  based on the clips MBC released while waiting for the subs

1. Starts off Detective  Ji Hyung Joo ( LJH) dressed up to go somewhere. A guy ( which we will later find out is a scammer of sorts) bumps into him causing JHJ to drop and crack his phone. JHJ stops the guy and the guy throws money at JHJ as compensation and walks off. JHJ not happy...holds him back and his colleague and best friend,  Park Sun Ho,   who was in the area catches the guy thinking  JHJ was trying to catch the guy for some crime...anyway think they let the guy go since it was a misunderstanding..

Spoiler

 

2. JHJ was off to a book signing of his favorite webtoon writer Shin Ha Gyun ( NJH) ...he races another fan towards the line for the book signing as per @Ameera Ali ' gif! As he beat the guy to the "finish line" , he was sadly denied to line up. Turns out SHG is a bit of diva..won't take photos with fans and limits the amounts of signing she will do

Spoiler

 

3. Then we get scenes of JHJ at work and how close he is especially to his Park Sun Ho. They have been through a lot together. Then one night there was this criminal who killed Sun Ho...the guy also stabbed JHJ on his leg and finds out from the guy that he had killed Sun Ho. JHJ who did not have his phone, hobbled all the way to Sun Ho's place and finds Sun Ho dead...he was devastated.

Spoiler

 

4. Meanwhile , it was not shown on the clips but Ha Gyun had met an accident and became paralysed legs down. This turned her into someone even more spiteful and making the life of her fiance ( who was her publisher ) and her assistant very difficult. ( I think fiance and assistant are cheating behind her back) Then in a scene in her house, fiance brought up about his parents being concerned about their marriage or something...She was so mad she just told him off and I think broke their engagement

Spoiler

 

5. JHJ was very sad and constantly thought of his hyung Sun Ho. So much so that he decided to resign...his superior did not want to accept his resignation but his morale was so low, he couldn't care anymore...while walking in the park he receives a mysterious call from a woman who told him that a KTX train would meet an accident at a particular time. He thought it was some prank and ignored it. Back home his house was a mess, as he was mourning and feeling depressed..he had a cute dog  ( called Maru ) and he woke up from his nap one day to see the news of the train accident.

6. Shocked , the mysterious caller called again and offered to meet and I am assuming tells him she can reset things back to the past.

Spoiler

 

7. JHJ thought it nonsense but anyhow he went to meet her . He went to this huge mansion. Met SHG who was  in a wheel chair...

8.JHJ and SHG along with 8 others meet the mysterious woman who was the psychiatrist Lee Shin. She predicted some lottery numbers to prove to them that she has the ability to help them reset their lives to one year back....

Spoiler

 

9. JHJ took some time to think as he  visited his bestie's grave ...he missed the latter alot and remembered how much Sun Ho had done for him in the past.

10. Long story short....the 10 who met Lee Shin agreed to reset and they went into this limo which drove off the cliff

Spoiler

 

11. The reset worked...JHJ was so happy to see his sunbae Sun Ho alive , because he had come from the future he was able to used the knowledge he had to solve some cases including the scammer who knocked his phone off...and also find way to prevent that criminal from killing his colleague

12. SHG meanwhile was so happy that she could walk again and became much nicer..she allowed fans to take photos and became less of a diva. Her assistant was amazed

13. JHJ and SHG did bump into each other at the park and recognise each  other..so this part confused me ...before reset, the dog was JHJ's but after reset, it was SHG  or do both have the same type of dog? Anyway JHJ and SHG were friendly with each other ...both happy for this second chance...in fact all the other resetters were so happy at first.

14. But there was one scene where I am not sure if it was before or after the reset...but it had SHG confronting her fiance and the assistant where she tells them she knows they were together and fiance was cheating on her...so she broke it off with the guy,

15. Anyway towards the end all the resetters had to meet Lee Shin in her mansion again. From everyone's expression , it seems not all is a rosy as expected. But the cliffhanger was that at the meeting..one of the resetters was apparently murdered...

 

So I think that is where tomorrow's episode will pick up with  JHJ probably trying to investigate the murdered resetter and that the reset came with more repercussions than expected for all resetters. Everyone starts becoming suspicious of everyone

end scene and preview

@triplem, will you really be recapping!???? I just looked up this thead, to report for commenting as promised and you have already recapped? Anyway, there are no subs yet, so most probably I will ep 1 tomorrow morning. And I will not read your recaps - and I have not watched any trailers or teasers - so I will see it with my mind absolutely open. :)

Well, the first episode was a big yes for me, to no surprise. She just has the midas touch when it comes to picking projects. I'd prefer no romance, but so long as it doesn't become the focus of the drama I'm not too bothered either way.

The beginning was a bit confusing. Weird way to open a show. But at some point i got hooked. 

The affair was really obvious, but it already started so long ago.. damn. I liked her reaction though. 

We can't say much about the mystery yet. The villa is insane. And it seems like a fun concept. I am curious about some of the stories of the other resetters if they are told well. I wonder if we are going to see that.

 

I think the drama has a lot of potential with the mystery the human stories that can be told. I already loved NJH's performance as well.

That said anything can happen. The premise screams for plotholes and it might end up in a disaster.

It's kind of like a mesh of Final Destination meets The Butterfly Effect. I feel bad for Ji Hyun's character.. she thought she could be happier by bein' able to regain mobility but as always it comes with a price. She ended up losing her fiance and her assistant instead.

Imo that was a really good first episode. Acting was really good (as expected), and story is really fast-paced but easy to follow. So far so good)) Also Lee Joon Hyuk being fanboy such a treat))

Dog was originally GaHyeon’s (NJH).  You see the dog bed and toys when she’s in her room after she calls it off with her fiancé (when she’s in her wheelchair) and tells her female assistant to leave as well.  She lost the dog.  HyeongJu (LJH) found the dog and because the dog didn’t have a tag he couldn’t contact the owner and therefore he kept it.  Dog for some reason seemed to recognize HJ regardless after the reset?

I watched subbed and it was fantastic.  Loved the pace of it.  Yes a bit confusing with the flash forwards and flashbacks.  But all in all very good.  Yes there will be major plot holes...anything related to time travel always does.

 

Thing I don’t understand is how she took them all back in time.  It looked like the limo went off a cliff... she said she found a hole in the time continuum??  And when asked if they would go back in time, she replied NOT physically but they would go back with just their memories... so they would have their 2019 bodies but with their 2020 memories?  That’s why GH (NJH) could walk again.  I liked how she was dressed in white (like an angel - messenger of hope) initially when she explained the whole deal to them... then when she met with them again she was in black (the devil is in the details).  
 

I think the fact that someone died after the reset is obvious.  It’s not a bed of roses.  You might be able to change some things (avoid the death of your detective Hyung) but inevitably there would be other things that happen which you would never have without the reset (the death of the delivery guy, finding out your fiancé was cheating).


The other thing is that the psychiatrist has already been back before.  She knew about the train derailment and also about the lotto numbers.  Did she go alone?  And I am a bit suspicious about her saying she picked them all randomly?

@nrllee I just got off with subs...very good.  And all my questions answered. Thanks for explaining... And at least for all my fellow LJH fans here...oppa is a good guy ...YAY!!!! :joy:...how many dramas now have we seen him in where we question his character..black? White? grey?  Lol!

 

I love Hyeong Ju . His character is very endearing. While I am not sure why the rest chose the reset path, his character was the only one shown to have done it not for himself but for his friend to live again. I liked the way the dog connected our two leads..funnily the dog recognised him in the reset..so that is a big clue for us to remember in coming episodes.  @nrllee noted on the change in her clothes. Good one . Must remember that too. Also the fact that she knew the lotto numbers and the train accident means that she is coming from the future ...at the time that she met them before the reset..that was her future memories inhabiting her 2020 body...what do you all think? 

 

Time travel dramas always have plot holes - the universe is set by the writer. So what's important for the writer is to pre-determine the rules of his/ her universe and not make it too complicated. Looking at it positively,  at least the writer has removed the possibility of the the past and future selves meeting face to face (since the time travel is not a physical one) ...this is always a problem in other time slip dramas that I have watched.

 

Ooo and about romance...I would not mind. They look good together plus Hyeong Ju is the ultimate fanboy and will be what they call a successful fan ...:lol:

 

Drama has been trending and I read on twitter that k nets liked the show.

@triplem yes finally he is a “good” character  :lol:.  Although wasn’t he also “good” in A Poem A Day (I don’t know. I didn’t watch).

Yes that’s what I think.  She said something very cryptic in the beginning...how she just had a “special experience” when she explained how she knew about the accident to him.  Then she says this
 

BBAED2-BA-F740-46-D9-8418-F789181-FA3-EE

8-FB0-F3-C5-0-FB6-4707-A32-A-4-AF96-F5-A

Why does she say that for the train accident?  Was she one of the dead?  The injured?  Anyway she seems to know how to push their buttons to get them to say yes... the lotto (promise of riches) for those who were down and out.  All but the pregnant lady said yes.  I wonder what happened to her?  Why was she picked if the psychiatrist already knew how they would respond?  Assuming she’s already from the future?  Lots of questions. :lol:

 

The PD is good in this drama for building tension.  The whole limo scene driving through the barren grasslands...the black birds flying in the background (death premonition).  And the scene above with the hourglass (time is ticking).  


Her practice is called ZiAn??  Does it mean anything in Korean? Or is it meant to be “Zion” (heavenly kingdom).  Or is it Chinese (it means self peace - peace within yourself)?

Haven't watched but I am already excited by what I have seen so far.

No problem with romance as long as it doesn't overwhelm the story.

LJH is cute lah....

Back from Ep 1 (1/2)

Loving it and the goosepimples I got at the end!

Looking forward to Ep 2 (or 3 /4)

 

I think all must be connected somehow and it wasn't random chance.

Isn't it the Butterfly effect being explored here?

 

PS LJH is cute here....

Very interesting first episode. There's plenty of mystery/intrigue to keep me engaged in the story and so much I want to know...especially about the ZiAn psychiatrist. As you mentioned @nrllee, what is the meaning behind that when a certain date comes, she goes back to the past and relives her life again? Same as you, I don't quite believe her when she said the folks were randomly picked by her. They all must somehow benefit to her existence? @triplem I agree that based on her knowledge, she should be someone from the future.

Okay...with how it opened, I was momentarily tricked into thinking that LJH's character was going to be a con artist and I was like "oh no...", but thankfully, it turned out Hyeong Ju is totally a good guy! How he deeply regards his hyung/sunbae and chose to go back for him says a whole lot about him. Also, I loved how he fostered Maru as his own. So, it was really nice to see him reunite with both in the reset. I also liked how Maru connected the two main characters. Really good point on how s/he recognized Hyeong Ju in the reset.

 

I have always loved watching Nam Ji Hyun so I am super happy to see her as the FL here. Her character may be upset about the affair between her fiance and friend, but honestly, it is better that she found out much sooner than later. I hope she eventually realizes that they are not worth the heartache. And whatever her relationship will be with Hyeong Ju, just friends or possibly romantic, I am looking forward to see them "work" together. If I heard the preview right, it sounds like they will navigate the "death game" together?

Finished with sub. I like the vibes. I think I can safely say this one is a keeper.

My guess for now is one by one they will die, so yeah, it's probably going to be sort of like a race against death kind of story?

 

The name of the place is 至安 which could mean Ultimate Peace/Safety, or Towards Peace/Safety, going by the Chinese characters.

 

This may not mean anything, but the guy who died and did not make it back to the meeting at the end of the episode, he had a pen and was making note with him in the limo. The lady already said that nothing can be brought back during reset, only memory. Could he be punished because he "cheated"? There is another guy with folded paper too, but seems like he is only memorizing and not making any notes.
