During Jiwon's phone call with her mother in-law, HS's mother said that Jiwon trapped Hee Sung into marriage by getting pregnant but they have been married for 14 years and Eunha doesn't look that old in any way. So they had a kid before or what? 

 

Perhaps they have been together for 14 years and married only a few years ago?

Isn't Douban a Chinese ratings website for dramas? I heard they're pretty critical when it comes to rating dramas. So this is good, right? :D

Yes. The site has more than 200 millions registered users. It's an important ratings website for dramas/movies/albums etc that people usually see as barometer. It's quite realiable when it comes to the high scores for the quality dramas. For most of C-dramas.. it isn't easy to get 8+. 7+ already considered good. Not sure about Kdramas but I think it's not much different

m loving Moon Chaewon's voice. She is so soft spoken completely different from her detective character. 

MCW is great in the drama with a very lively voice  in contrary to her often monotone ...

 

especially like the part in the BTS when she practised the lines of the scene breaking  off the kiss to pick up the daughter and get ready for dinner. And JG’s rapping was daebak,:hooray2:

@mulberry9-chingu, thanks for the reply! That's what I thought. :D I remember people talking about Douban and how difficult it is to receive a good rating from there.

Yes. It isn't easy to get 7+ even when the actors have huge fandoms. So I was surprised to see a very high score for FOE. Not that I'm complaining :P . It's really good.

Douban is no doubt a very reliable site. It's good to see high ratings but the ratings often falls after few episodes. It's difficult to maintain it. If only this was on Netflix then it would have gotten more exposure and popularity. As far as I know Lee Joongi is really popular in China so not much surprised :wub:

Maybe she meant Ji Won tied him into the marriage by having a baby. Like to prevent him from walking out and not shotgun marriage.

I've done watching a few days ago but never got the chance to write my first impression to this yet. don't know what to write cuz I have wrote most my comments somewhere else. And I already forgot what to write more here, haha. But one thing for sure the story is legit and it enriched with lots of layered conflicts and characters. I really like the prologue in ep 1 which shows how the future gonna be look like for them soon. or it could be how they actually first meeting after each other revealing their mask.

Not convinced that BHS/DHS is the real serial killer. I still think it's early in the show, and the whole dynamic between his "adopted" parents, his real father and sister haven't been revealed to us yet. I think we are going to be surprised to find out more about his background. I also think from the doll scene that he has always been perceived by others as evil and that he has suffered from that.

it what makes me attracted to this more, what you see isn't everything until it really comes clear.

BHS acted with a psychopath's mind and he did not take into consideration his child's feelings. It was manipulative, calculative and throwing away the doll as a revenge was cruel. Yikes! What kind of values is he teaching his child?

LOL. moral value how to do bad things but nothing can harm your public image to his daughter. I know it is wrong on so many levels. But the other parent of the kid is also at fault. I just wonder if they cast another actor aside from LJK, will I still like him being this psychopath? hahaha.

@Alice Wonderland One of the main reasons why people (including me :ph34r:) are sympathising with and liking BHS is because the character is being played by LJK. If they had cast any other actor we might have still liked him but not to this extent :lol:

But i think he didn't tell her about stealing the doll. It's more like he made her believe the other girl was hit by karma. I don't think he teached her any valuable lesson as if she kept apologizing to people who wronged her. No one really gonna bring her justice coz of her good image. It's just that BHS seemed to have developed a complex as people kept thinking the worst about him due to his father's crime and his mental illness.

hi!:) i have some questions... would it be okay to ask here? :) thank you!  need some clarifications.

1. joongi was the first one casted here right? so , the director gave him the script to look and study? or the namoo chose joongi to try the role ( sorry i dont know how casting do ):) 

2. how chaewon was casted? is it by joongi request or chaewon is already the main lead ? 

 

* got confused of what joongi said that she asked chaewon if he will get the role or not. :)

Hi!! Don't know if this will answer your question, but the drama had been in production maybe even before October 2019, even so, both Joongi and Chaewon were already casted as main leads, and were the only confirmed cast. I'm not exactly sure how the casting worked this time, as they were both announced as leads at the same time when they had already confirmed for the role, back in January of this year.

 

The only particular information I have is that both of them had already worked with this production company before, Monster Union (a KBS based drama production company, that is starting to invest in more dramas targeted to other broadcasting channels. Chaewon worked back in 2011 with Princess' Man and Joongi with Gunman in Joseon), so maybe that's the connection they had to receive the script together, as a possibility of a casting director for the company to look for actors they had worked before. Not to mention they are from the same company, worked together before, etc.. But that's just my guess...

I think what he meant by that is if he could handle the role, he wasn't feeling too confident (pffft, boi you're doing amazing), so he asked her if he could do it well.

Yes. Both dramas were by the same team and also the same PD (Kim Jung Min). It's a pity that we don't see these two work in a sageuk..esp from this very production company that produced The Princess' Man.

Spoiler

It's been a long time since they both did sageuk (I don't count her last sageuk movie) 

 

And seems like many are wanting them in sageuk. It's actually the genre that most want to see them in *sigh*

 

Look at javabeans' tweets a few days ago :joy:
