On a side note, anyone else notice at least 3 instances where there was a clip that repeats? Watching on Viki so I don't know if it's intentional or a streaming/editing issue/glitch in the matrix.

 

Same here, also watching on Viki. :)

Just finished ep 6 and I am so conflicted. I'm going to put everything in the spoilers for key events that happened from ep 6 since ep 5 was mostly centered around JA and LY's growing relationship (wh

LY isnt in love with JA, yet.  He just wants her to have a happy life, and he will do everything so that can happen.   I like JAs loyalty and care for Yeon, whether she is in love or no

Popping by to share some of my theories ! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted on here !    Anyways I’m too lazy to retype all of my theories on here, but for anyone curious you can check t

First of all I REFUSE TO SEE THE SPOILERS above Lol.

 

Is this The show I have been waiting for In K drama land ...I mean I just finished the First Episodes.

 

It has K drama Fantasy elements with C drama Xianxia and American Vampire Legends Twists as well. I am Stumped. Although I can name the shows I found similarity too but let us not go there.

 

First episode Lee Yeon is looking for his Lost mate , I guess there will be atleast One more Lifetime shown as he cannot mate with Anyone else. (Like he said to The kid in the park who I guess was in TKEM as baby Jo Young anyhow that interaction was so cute.), if it has multiple lifetimes good for me,,,my Korean Xianxia love will be fulfilled.

 

The shows first episode legit made me wonder if every third person I meet is a shape Absolving Fox wuhahah....

The funny thing being even writers Knew LDW Fox King would be compared to his Alter Ego Grim Reaper due to searching the soul mate similarity, but it became a bit too much for me, Until KB entered the scene and wow are there no neighbors? The brother literally rampaged and broke half her house (Poor Jiah , who will cover the Cost??) 

How is KB looking exactly the same he looked in BOF puzzles me. I like his cheeky anti hero character here.

The leading lady is Too too smart, she is like Buffy but the Urban Mythical Creature Salyer , because her parents vanished in thin air. The episodes should reveal what exactly happened there!I am still puzzled about the first 10 minutes.

 

First episode : Went smoothly, and is thank God an hour long, I was getting mad with all the K dramas this year being almost 2 hour long yet a bit draggy, this gave me much needed relief. Hope it lives up to fantasy standards in futher episodes as well, which got lost after 2016 dramas.

I think that Lee Yeon Grim Reaper is confused .... I mean his girlfriend, the A-Eum's body were reborn many times in exact look alike face - "as a woman"; once as a woman with a kid, and once in the western cloths lady. Now in the 21st century he does not mind if AE is reincarnated as a man??  - as long as he's not 60 years old !! LOL :D

It is just ad breaks when airing on tvn.  I guess they just deliver the episode without edit it since VIKI get episode few hour after airing. :) 

 

Over to the premier week. Really great start with romance, horror, action and mystery.  I love that our female lead is smart and pick up thing fast. love our sassy fox. Also very interesting dynamic building between them. brothers relationship is also interesting.  Gonna be fun to see what to comes for us.  

 

ep 3. preview :D

Hi guyss...:heart1: I just finished first 2 episode and went back to soompi for able share my general thoughts. 

 

I liked this drama. First I thought it gonna be a another cliche fantasy-romance drama but story is deep. I liked the thriller and horror factors in it and LY & JA storyline. Liked how they are chasing a 2 good mystery. I liked LDW's acting in this drama. He really developed his acting skills. I feel now he is acting with his eyes. Kim Bum also making you wonder who is this man! what is his story! About Bo-Ah. I like her. I have some concern over her character in this drama actually. You know k-dramas turns around female leads. They write the actual story and other leads turns around them so I always care about female characters more. ıf they are likeable and unforgettable than public likes the drama. JA is little bit a typical character. Tomboy reporter girl who is chasing her own mystery. it is ok but waiting this character be more unique. Give us some comedy, some face gestures, some weird habits maybe. I want her to be more unique. For me she is not dislikeable but also not likeable too. very stable. Hope her character gonna be more charming coz this drama deserves it. Other leads uniqueness and their acting level little bit shadowing her.

 

About the story I will wait more to solve it. But I can only say I think JA is really not a human. neither her nor her parents. ;)

I’ve been excited for this drama for a while, and it did not disappoint!  

 

I like both the FL and ML, they don't feel like cliche characters at all to me. Ji Ah is smart, perceptive, and straightforward, but not cold or jaded, she's still curious and good-hearted and open to the mysteries of the world. I’ve always been a fan of unsolved mysteries and the paranormal, so I appreciate her line of work - I’d totally watch her show! As for Lee Yeon, there's a gravity and age to him as well as a subtle insouciance that suits a fox. Too much in either direction - either too serious or too mischievous - would've felt too obvious, but two episodes in and he feels layered already. (Not sure if I dig that bright red hair on LDW, I assume it's a nod to a fox’s coloring - but was it just me, or was the color changing in between scenes? Sometimes even from shot to shot in the same scene, going from practically orange to really dark?) Anyway, I like the dynamic between them so far; it feels as if though logically they know they're essentially strangers and should be cautious, on an emotional level they're slipping quickly into a natural comfort with each other. Just that little moment in the homestay bedroom where he put the blanket over her head was super cute (and also a pleasant surprise, since in many dramas the ML and FL barely touch until halfway through, let alone flirt and share a bedroom in the second episode!) 

 

The younger brother is more of that classic roguish "trickster" persona but there are definitely some sensitive wounds there I'm looking forward to exploring. I remember reading that KB took inspiration from abandoned animals and we saw a hint of that already during the brothers' conversation at the waterfront restaurant. Even some of his movements remind me of a coyote or something. The brothers' contrasting personalities and past relationship is interesting, not to mention they’re both handsome to boot! :wub:

 

(Also, I loved Goblin so of course I was tickled by the subtle little references to it in episode 1 - I made my husband pause so I could explain in detail! Considering he’s never seen it, I’m sure he was very deeply interested… :lol:

 

EDITED TO ADD: One more thing, I'm not really thrilled with the reincarnation aspect, I feel like that's really been done to death in dramas, but I'll wait and see how it's handled. I've always thought it would be cool to have a story about a couple who are not soulmates/destined/etc, but defy fate and choose to be together anyway; so it would be neat if, despite her resemblance, Ji Ah is not his past love but he falls for her anyway.

Just watched the first two episodes... It is beyond my expections... 

 

When I first learnt that Lee Dong Wook had accepted the script.. I was anxious how the storyline would be.. I was a bit sceptical and with Jo Bo Ah as the lead actress.. Was not at all excited.. :crazy:

 

The only comfort I had was Lee Dong Wook (crush from My Girl days) and Kim Bum... :heart4:

Jo Bo Ah always play negative roles in the dramas I have watched of her... Those annoying characters... 

But two episodes done... I guess now I can change my opinion... :Megalol:

 

After two episodes... I can't wait for the series to complete... 

 

:hooray2:

I'm honestly so surprised by his characterisation in this show - in a good way! I expected him to be the typical seductive and extremely flirty "fox" kinda like what LR (his brother) portrays but I love this version so much more! He's almost childlike sometimes then REALLY suave the next minute. I love it. The first two episodes really got me intrigued. And you know a show is interesting the moment the FL literally uses a tranquilizer on the ML :joy:

 

ALSO I can't be the only one who was super creeped out in the beginning of episode 1 with that scene with her "parents" and the accident right cause I did NOT sign up for a horror/thriller drama :fear:

Finished Episode 2.

 

It gave me all Twilight and L.O.S.T vibes. 

 

My 2 cents Ji-Ah's parents knew their kid would be special, they had her Fox Pill embedded in her soul Sealed by something or the Bead may have been stolen. That is why Lee Yeon cannot detect the Pill inside her soul.

 

Lee Rang is a sadist IMO, he needs to have some other lines further except harping on same tune. See Ah Eum was killed , was she killed by Him? (He was said to be 600 year Old fox, and Lee Yeon has been wandering in Mortal World since 600 years as per Viki Subs), or maybe there is a third fourth person involved here.

 

I like how they are playing around with Multiple Mythical Gods but I hope it doesn't get overly cumbersome (Also I lowkey think Dr. Doolittle Fox is not all goody goody since he posses all the Controlling pills for Mythical people, he could have something to with All Reincarnated Altercations  but I may be wrong). 

 

I liked the storyline but I did not like FOX King's / Rain King's costume and hair in Heaven or Fox Realm whatever it was. 

Lets see what next week brings.

 

Also is it me or does his nostalgic tune of Lee Yeon and Ah Eum resembles Braveheart Movies Tune??

@blademan, totally agree. I’m really enjoying LDW’s character in this drama so far. I don’t think I have seen him play a character like this in his drama shows that I watched. I like his acting here and I tend to think he’s probably having fun while acting the character.

Grim Reaper Liked Watching K dramas, Gumiho loves American Dramas.

 

Grim Reaper I think loved Shakes/Juices , Gumiho likes Mint Chocolate Icecream.

 

Both Loved and Lost and now searching for something.Both Can Erase Memories.

 

Grim Reaper although was Less expressive Gumiho wins on that Part.And this one Loves shoving his enemies onto the Window.Grim Reaper only needed to Use His Voice to make others surrender. :phew:

 

Also Both somehow have names related to KES shows...Lee Yeon resembles Lee Gon and Kim Woo Bin Lol.

 

The Lady Grim Reaper maybe stole The then Grim Reapers Job opened an Induction Session for Purgatory Passengers of instead Tea Party 1:1 grillimg before travelling in after Life.And then banished him to be the Gumiho King.Haha

I like this drama, i just wished that they didn't do it so much cliché like they did in ep 1-2... This story has a lot of potential, especially with the brothers issue... but, they just introduced the first love troupe and the reincarnation troupe...

 

A love can be the most magical, awesome and eternal love WITHOUT the NEED for lovers to have met when they were children/ancient creature nor for them to be reincarnated and be destined to meet again and again and again. Like, it seems that the only way for a love to be memorable/great in most kdramas and fantasy kdramas is to be one of these overused clichés troupes (1rst love , reincarnation)

 

Not to mention that that cliché of the reinarcated lover leads to the actual question if the lovers love the actual person in front of them or the idea of their late lover and some characteristic of the new person. I would love if the FL isn't the old love of the fox.

 

Aside from that, this writter really needs to separate their writing from the Goblin route, because so far, this seems like an updated AU of goblin.

@cafe99 totally agree over this reincarnation cliche. They are using this so much. but I liked how they were more logical over this: the person soul doesnt need to reborn with same body. it can be man, woman, animal...but again they used a same cliche as her coming to a life with same body in every century. This cant happen. Maybe reincarnation happen we would never know but person cant born with same look. That means your family also reincarnated, got married again. there is something called DNA. You need it for able to born again with same look. that also means all your relatives reincarnated again and again and found each other. than why your soul changes body in every comeback? This cliche is tiring. I disappointed when I saw his first love is also JA. and her reincarnated self probably will go out as JA again. At least do smth interesting and make that woman a dog in this life. ;)
