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

Recommended Posts

I don't think we will find out why they were chosen very soon but it will be revealed in stages.

I don't feel this is an altruistic move and there must be some motive behind who gets chosen and why.

Summary: oppa is still as hot as ever

I don't want him this talkative but okay fine.

 

Can someone please photoshop our Spanish PM together with them? Lololol so that he could go back in time and lock down Catalonia and Madrid much, much earlier.

3 out, 7 to go.. I have a 'And then there were none' wibes with this one. At this point i suspect that everyone in this group is connected to each other somehow. I also have a suspicion that Yang Dong Geun character work on Kim Ji Soo char.. Or mb not :blink: Survival game indeed. 

P.S

Good news, everyone: 

MBC’s “365: Repeat the Year,” which premiered Monday to ratings of 4.0 and 4.9 percent, saw a small increase in ratings on day two, hitting averages of 4.4 and 5.0 percent in ratings.

Avoid A, A still happens but maybe to someone else

The World flows as usual. The choices you make may affect you, but it might be disastrous for others around you.

I haven't watched the Japanese version so I am anticipating the next episodes!

 

So... finished watching and I am a bit upset with Ga Hyun for just rushing into things without thinking. She is meant to be a webtoon artist who thinks about crime in her webtoons.

I agree with Gaming Geek. Learn the rules first and try to figure out how you are all connected. And perhaps that's what she was trying to do at the cafe before Hyun Ju came in.

 

PS. I still love NJH. Just a tad frustrated (at this point) with her character.

Emoting wise - she is still daebak!

Brilliant Ep2.  The butterfly effect was mentioned by the psychiatrist.  Essentially it is the phenomenon in chaos theory whereby a minor change in circumstances can cause a large change in outcome.
 

It sounds like there are some things you can change but some you cannot?  HyeonJu saved his Hyung but did someone pay for that?  The delivery guy who died because he passed out at the wheel?  GaHyeon avoided her paralysis but she found out about her best friend cheating with her fiancé...and then the same accident happened to her friend except she died (she wasn’t just paralyzed)?  YeonSoo tried to avoid the repeat of the hit and run (and her marriage to her abusive fiancé) and she did...but her fiancé ended up being the hit and run driver...and I guess he killed her (he was abusive)?  The psychiatrist told YS to avoid dying at all costs because she (YS) successfully reset her life (no longer the hit and run driver) - that seems to be the “rule”.  It would appear that the same rule applies to all of them.  If they successfully reset their lives, they need to get to the end of the 365 days without dying?  

 

This conversation between YS and the psychiatrist was enlightening.

 

7405-AD63-72-E0-44-D7-BBEA-D639-AFEC7-C7


then YS laments, “is this really destined for me?”

LeeShin (psychiatrist) says, “the advice I can give you is always the same.”

 

0-E8-FBA4-A-52-C8-4976-9394-8-DBA39-E4-F


487-F39-C5-C57-A-44-FF-9-CF8-012338-D28-


This seems to imply that you reset and then you try your best to survive the 365days...and you can keep doing that (reset) till you get to an iteration that suits you?  If you drop out (die) before the end of the “game” you’re out?  I don’t know what LeeShin’s final desired outcome is but it sounds like she didn’t like the ones she ended up with in previous resets...so she’s trying this current one.  YS seems to be one that wasn’t just randomly selected (no phone call).  Although one could argue that HJ wasn’t  randomly selected.  His boss seemed to know about ZiAn and recommended he go there for therapy after the death of his Hyung?  Did she seed that thought in his mind?  It seems too coincidental?

@taeunfighting Hyeong Ju has this sweet dorky disposition to him...and I love that he is such a fan boy at heart - I was tickled when he wanted to find out more about the ending of the comic from GaHyeon.

 

@nrllee To be fair , he's played a number of good guy roles - A Poem A Day  ( a personal favourite) , Are You Human Too etc but he's reputation playing questionable shady characters ( Stranger, DS60 ) gets a lot more attention. :lol:. But being versatile, I like how he's interpreting HJ's character. 

 

So back to the drama, I have all sorts of random thoughts and theories in my head...

1. Is there some sort of interconnection between the fates of all the resetters,  in particular they are all linked to GH?  HJ and GH are linked by him caring for her lost dog. SY was the one who hit GY prior to resetting.  YDG ( the gangster) was the one who got rid of SY's husband's car.  The rest we have yet to be shown.

 

2. These 10 are in some way linked to Lee Shin. This is at least Lee Shin's second time resetting . She probably has done it many times considering that she knows enough of the rules. I wonder why they never ask her why them? Or did they?

 

3. GH's webtoon is called the Hidden Killer . Would that have some answers to what is going on here?  

 

4. Gamer boy's prediction that whoever who gets up next will be the next to die.....that was not the case but his theory may not be too far off...maybe GH's life was supposed to be next, but if you can somehow use the knowledge of your pre-reset life to help you avoid meeting the same fate ( like what HJ did to save his friend and the judge etc in eps 1) , death can be avoided. That could be what is needed to survive this "game"

 

LJH's agency posted his cuts for the press con and the radio promotion

Hyeong Ju's adorkable nature did come out more in episode 2. There is something sweet and endearing about him (as you previously mentioned). I can see why his hyung/sunbae treats him like brother and why Ga Hyeon naturally trusts him - given that they were practically strangers to begin with. I like that he is looking out for her. It was funny when he was trying so hard to find out who Samson is from her. (I assume Samson is the "hidden killer”?). It seemed like she would give into him, but can’t because of contractual obligations.

 

@triplem Regarding your thoughts and theories above, I have similar ones percolating in my mind too.

 

1 & 2. I feel the resetters are somehow connected GH to some level/degree while there is likely a direct connection between Lee Shin and GH. She seems to have more of an interest in GH than the others.

 

3. I also think there is likely a correlation between the webtoon and their reality. Perhaps there is a similar Hidden Killer in real life as well. Lee Shin told GH to think about the reasons why she is here and how she will use this time. Maybe because she can understand and create the mind of a killer, she will be of help to HJ to catch the one in real life? It can't be a simple or mere coincidence that he is a fan and familiar to Hidden Killer. With Yeon Soo's death/murder, we may find out more.

 

4. I agree that if they use their knowledge from the future, it seems that they could maneuver around fate, but it causes other changes to happen around them (the butterfly effect). The Gamer, with his skills, might be useful to HJ and GH to strategize and approach the rules of the reset.

 

There is also something peculiar with Maru. It was odd how he ran off and ended up with HJ in episode 1 then Yeon Soo in episode 2. It’s as if he was meant to lead GH to find both of them in the reset.

I don’t know what LeeShin’s final desired outcome is but it sounds like she didn’t like the ones she ended up with in previous resets...so she’s trying this current one.

 

Based on what Lee Shin said in episode 1, her life or ability to live seems to be dependent on a certain date. I wonder if she needs GH and the rest of the resetters to somehow redefine her own fate.

@taeunfighting yes to all your points.  Regarding Hidden Killer, GH refused to tell HJ who “Samson” was (I assume he’s the hidden killer in her webtoon).  She even added that she could “change” the ending even if she told him to keep the surprise element.  I have a feeling (like you and @triplem) that she’s the key.  She decides how and if everyone gets out of this reset.

 

Good point about Maru as well.  I am wondering if one of the rules of the game is that the world stays in equilibrium regardless.  So if there’s meant to be an event in the lives of those who’ve been reset, it stays a constant.  The car accident had to happen.  Maru had to be “lost”.  But not sure why HJ’s Hyung gets a free ride though...or is that coming?  And yes with the gamer.  He’s definitely someone who is working out what the rules of the game are and he’s staying on the side watching till he knows how to play.  But we don’t know what his motivations are for joining the game.  Is it just for the thrill of being in the “Matrix”?

Watched as soon as the episodes came out but didn't get a chance to post till now. The pace is breathless...

@keyta  Love Agatha Christie novels so really dig your reference. As with Christie, like that they approach the story from the psychological angle, not just the action thriller aspect.

 

Having foreknowledge is a terrible burden - the fear of reliving trauma, always watching over your shoulder, not being able to live 'in the moment'. The suspicion that you are still trapped by your fate.

@taeunfighting @triplem @nrllee Enjoyed hearing you all mulling over theories. We are all trying to work out the rules of the game now! :D

 

Like you, I suspect Lee Shin not only is connected to everyone but has very personal reasons for resetting. I feel she is experimenting continually to get the outcome she wants. In that conversation where she told Seo Yeon-su to 'survive no matter what', I had strong foreboding that she needed certain things to happen in each experiment to advance her goals. Each time, because fates of people become intertwined, she has to bring in more participants, tie up loose ends and 'close them off'. Hence the deaths and strange coincidences.

Other reactions - I was a little disoriented in the first episode because the tone changed so erratically and the acting was so OTT :lol: Was worried this would end up really corny :sweatingbullets: But I realised that they had to do it to hook the audience. The pacing since then has been swift but more consistent. 

 

I'm totally blown away by the film location they used for Lee Shin's Zian lair. It looks like some avant garde museum... Anybody have a clue where it was filmed? Really liked the cinematography and framing - the cyan macaroon that morphed into the interview space; the car travelling down the winding road...

Yes I loved all those details.  It just adds to the tension.  The PD is very good.

 

Also did everyone notice how LeeShin seems to use the hourglass a lot?  There was one frame where the hourglass was turned horizontally and it looked like the infinity symbol.  Like a time continuum.

Yes to this.  How does she (LS) ensure that she’s the one who survives the “Hunger Games” in the end though?  She has to survive so I think she manipulates the pieces (the people) she’s picked for each iteration to safeguard her way to the end somehow whilst trying to get the desired outcome for herself.

Im really liking Lee Joon Hyuk here. Ino he's alittle talkative and extroverted but I think his character is a very good one just being a normal dude who goes through something he never thought he would. I am looking forward to the next episodes :)

It hasn't happened yet. HJ's hyung got murdered later that year. I'm calling it. Rather than Sun-Ho getting murdered like before. Someone else from the Investigation Team is going to get murdered. By the same person too.

Do you mean that his hyung will not get a free ride and probably will die later on? Or do you mean the incident where he got killed has not happened yet after HJ reset?

I was wondering if I should comment before watching the second episode. 

From the moment the psychiatrist from Zian/Jian walked into that circular room, I immediately thought of Liar Game. It certainly has a strong J drama vibe to it.

 

I started watching this mainly for LJH who is utterly adorable here by the way. Always great to see him in a starring role. But the premise is very intriguing. 

 

I wonder how he does it sometimes... transform himself so completely... just with doing the littlest things with his facial features.

 

Good to see his limbs all intact.
