I agree with @katakwasabi and @sadthe1st the guy with the scarred face HAS to be HC dad. I mean so far in all the character ONLY he was burned. Interesting he is hiding til now and decides to get his revenge on HC. GOOD I am glad that HC will get some sort of comeuppance! Looking forward to it!

 

@slpamngtrs Welcome to the forum and hope you can join us more and write down more of your thoughts as well on this awesome drama! The more the merrier!

 

@Ashbelle Yeah I don't feel the romance vibes on the OTP. Right now I don't expect it. Almost to me in the Reset 365 earlier this year. You THINK Might be romance vibes but just partnership. Then again I am fine with it as I have other dramas with PLENTY of romance in my rotation to satisfy that part. LOL.

 

 

As we wait for another episode for Kairos some stuff released to keep us busy.

 

 

BTS--making

I actually don't mind Seojin character in ep 8 because he's consistent. He never believed Aeri from the moment she met him at his office. It wouldn't make sense if he suddenly believes her especially

Main guy:  I lost everything.  Damn it all, I'm jumping off the bridge. *tweet tweet* Main guy:  Hold on a second, let me check my message first before I jump off the bridge.

Awwww @lebeaucouple thanks my friend for remembering me! I know we meet so many in other forums. Glad to see your posts and activity! YEAH it has been a bit of time! LOVE LOVE your ideas and theories

Seo Jin did serious work to find Ae Ri`s mom destinations in the past month. He told her where to look for her mom and indirectly told Ae ri that somethiong bad will happened with her. Seo Jin did not know who was that woman at first and told Ae Ri that he saw a dead person who was killed by Lee Tae Kyu. Ae Ri realised that that person could be her mom.

Seo Jin found out the connection between Lee Tae Kyu and Seo Do Kyun.

I am glad that Ae Ri`s mom is not dead at the present. They changed the future. I don`t know if it will last but for now, it is good. I hope Seo Jin and Ae Ri will changed the faith of Kim Jin Ho as well.

 

It was a surprised to see more about Kang Hyun Chae`s past. I suspect that her her life was very difficult after her fsther became an alcoholic but she took the decision to killed her father without remorse. If she did that, to come up with a plan to disapear is a piece of cake.

 

I stuill believe that Ae Ri should tell Seo Jin about his wife and Do Hyun`s affair. He already suspects Do Hyun to be involved with Lee Tae Kyu. From the preview, Kang Hyun Chae has sights on Ae ri in the past. Who knows how things will go from here.

 

I am looking forward to the next episodes.

His actions are still valid. It was his action that led to changes in the past and only Seojin notices the changes happening around him. The other characters just dissappear because in this new present the case never happened. His wounds dissappear too as his present is reset.

 

I think it's a cool scene but I also think it should be a different variation unless of course her mom would be killed another way, another day, by another person.  If her mom lived, it would change many many things from that point onward.  It may mean there's no point for him to look for her and wouldn't have led him to that hotel.

Kairos: Episode 6 Open Thread

by Laica

Kairos6-00014.jpg

This is the worst type of show to suffer preemptions, because how are we to survive this suspense with our nerves intact?! But once again, Kairos serves up an intense, satisfying hour of revelations and barely averted disaster. As one of our protagonists desperately tries to find our heroine’s mother before the worst can happen, and our heroine does her best to decode what clues she has with only a blurry outline of the changing future.

 

EPISODE 6 WEECAP

Kairos6-00002.jpgKairos6-00005.jpg

Seo-jin doesn’t immediately recognize the dead body as Song-ja, Ae-ri’s mother, and he loses Taek-kyu, who’s caught on to being followed. (How many people has this evil assistant killed now?) Taek-kyu lies low, and waits for Do-kyun’s orders. We see now how Do-kyun and Hyun-chae planned this whole thing out: figuring out that Kim Jin-ho’s weak spot is his surviving daughter, and using her as leverage to rope him into their plan.

Seo-jin can’t bring himself to tell Ae-ri it was her mother’s body he saw, but furiously tracks Song-ja’s movements. Ae-ri, not knowing Hyun-chae is watching her, visits Da-bin while she plays (to put a tracker on her teddy?).

@larus Hello my friend! I totally hear you. Yes my thoughts exactly how SJ was very good about helping AR out when he DID NOT know at first who that woman was in fact. So when he found out the connection of her to AR was shocking. But thanks to his help, he prevented her death and changing the future (in his time). So that was most EPIC and satisfying scene. EVen the sympathetic cop to SJ was frustrated in disbelief that SJ would murder a woman (AR mom).

 

Yes, we figure and can deduce her father must have been horrific for a child to want to burn down the home with her father in it. The fact the tell tale alcoholic containers doesn't make it right. But the trauma and damage inflicted lasts a life time. But agree, if she is capable of doing that, planning to escape and pretend to die and fake a kidnapping is definitely a walk in the park for her.

 

I agree with you and others, AR should tell SJ about his wife having an affair. This is big NEWS. Honestly not easy to share (ie when SJ realized it was AR mom he found) but changes the whole scenario for him to look /reflect on his family life with with DB and HC.

 

Oh found this--while we wait for next week a cast interview

i wish this drama get more recognition from others...the storyline was so addicting plus i like how the plot connects with each others and not solely focus on one issues...im glad now AR had someone on her side who believes (even not 100%) and they tries to avoid the tragedy happen..i wish we can see SJ also had someone beside him..for this moment all people around him just back stabing him..i hate the wife the most...she the one who pick the one she want to be her husband and knowing how workholic her husband was she need attention and ‘love’ from her ex..

another things im glad here SJ totally not someone who use bad or fake material only to realize he doing wrong..but he really do his work the best he can do.

so i wonder what gonna happen for next episode

“Kairos” Postpones Broadcast + Previews Ahn Bo Hyun And Nam Gyu Ri’s Growing Anxiety

Nov 23, 2020

MBC’s “Kairos” released new suspenseful stills of Ahn Bo Hyun and Nam Gyu Ri along with news of broadcast postponement.

The “time-crossing fantasy thriller” is about the interconnected fates of Kim Seo Jin (Shin Sung Rok), a man who falls into despair after his daughter is kidnapped, and Han Ae Ri (Lee Se Young), a woman who is searching for her missing mother. From Kim Seo Jin’s perspective, Han Ae Ri is living exactly one month in the past – but after the two miraculously communicate from their different times, they set out on a thrilling quest to save their missing loved ones.

MBC announced that “Kairos” will not air on November 23 as they will be broadcasting the fifth round of the KBO League Korean Series. Instead, “Kairos” will air episodes seven and eight back-to-back on November 24 starting at 9:20 p.m. KST.

Spoiler

In the upcoming episode of “Kairos,” a fissure will gradually begin to appear in Seo Do Gyun (Ahn Bo Hyun) and Kang Hyun Chae’s (Nam Gyu Ri’s) relationship. Previously, Seo Do Gyun and Kang Hyun Chae thoroughly planned out Kim Da Bin’s (Shim Hye Yeon’s) kidnapping and murder case. Furthermore, Kang Hyun Chae’s goal of taking on a new identity was revealed, shocking viewers and making them wonder if she’s actually the character with all the power in her hands.

Ep 7

Feelings make people behave irrationally...

Aeri + her mom should've just spilled the tea. Everything would've been solved faster if they just spoke honestly. Aeri should've told her mom her lies will have consequence on human life and death.

After the way hyunchae spoke to her at the convenience, I would've dug my nails into her hair and rat her out to seojin in anger.

 

Gunwook should've just let aeri taser tf out of taekyu -  d-1, tie him up in a chair, secluded area, make him confess plans, lock him up until d-day; (taser) convince jinho to stop, expose taekyu's intention to kill him, divert plan, then deal with the rest of their sus team.

---

And seojin....bruh. you don't go alone to the crime scene when there's a potential murderer hanging with your daughter. They've already killed jinho - you don't think they'll kill you?
 

Ep 8

Aeri is so obviously out-of place improperly dressed in informal-ish attire with her huge knapsack, hiding behind huge signs for long durations.

It's a huge annual high-class rich pple event - she should've been asked to show an invitation ticket. I'm sure there's reserved seating for guests - so how did they not kick her? Unless gunwook photoshopped her a ticket lol. + Her girl friend's supposed to be working too, wouldn't the hugggeee earpieces be prohibited/improper paired with her work uniform?
heck, aeri should've just worn a disguise or pretend to be wait staff with her friend.
---
She also had multiple times to spill about dokyun/taekyu/hyunchae/jinho's sus endeavours after her arrest. Yet not once had tried to hint him in the right direction...

Can't believe the police didn't once bother to go after jinho as he was sus turtle walking away. 

There were 10 of them on one girl and they didn't bother looking for other accomplices.

 

I had a lot of questions today for some reason since I'm burned out from life.

I'm not going to get into the timeline travel frame theory today bc my head's starting to hurt thinking too much.

Haha i agree with the trio disguise duting the event. It's not that easy to disguise. Also about Kim Jin Ho. I agree. Aeri insisted that the kidnapper should be Kim Jin Ho. Police should have at least have suspicion on Kim Jin Ho and the gang.

 

Seo Jin also should have told the police instead go by himself to the villa. Tsk.


Anyway, started to confuse with the things here.

 

In the newest timeline, Kim Seo Jin doesn't have any relationship with Aeri since there's no abduction. So basically Kim Seo Jin doesn't remember who Aeri is. But that last scene from eps 8? How could he call her during the accident? Aargghh I'm confused.

with the confusing ep8.. i'm hoping that it's because now Ae Rin is living in the "overlapped" timeline as Seo Jin.. that's why Seo Jin in the same timeline as Ae Rin is having some recollection of events although they did not happen (had been prevented).

 

what worries me more is that Do Kyun suspects Ae Rin and believes the text messages more than Seo Jin.

 

so, how did Ae Rin manage to get released from the police station? if Seo Jin didn't manage to recall in time to drop the charges, then was it Do Kyun who act on his behalf so that he could question her himself?

Ae Ri got released because her mom came to speak with big cheese at the construction company and the command came down to Seo Jin I guess.  Her mom got cards under her sleeves.  If Ae Ri ends up in jail, it's not much difference than the first time Seo Jin met her.

 

I do like to understand how the fragments of memories SJ has on the other time line suddenly appear on this time line.  Is that an attempt to explain deja vu just because or is there some kind of logic in the work here?

 

I've also been wondering why September Seo Jin hasn't gone to look for September Ae Ri after the changes last time.  The last he came was when she got murdered.  So I've been curious about September Ae Ri since she escaped death the 2nd time.  Then last ep, Sept SJ evaporated all together with the time line.  Ae Ri couldn't get in touch with him.

 

Ae Ri seems to have harbored feelings for Seo Jin.  The way she looked at him at the entrance like she was glad he was ok and there was something more.  Then at the end when she was about to kick him to the curb then when he called out to her, she got all soft so quickly.  It was in the voice.

i don't actually want to see a romance line here between Ae Ri and Seo Jin; i rather interpret it as a comrades in action where one is trying to save her mom and another is trying to save his daughter.. in a situation where no one will believe and they only have each other to rely on to save their love ones. i still prefer Ae Ri with Gun Wook.

The ending of ep 8 is future Seojin. He's in October. I guess all his September memories are back as the days pass. Something happened in the month which has yet to be shown. Something also happened to future Aeri in September which has yet to be shown. Seojin9 can't use the tracker registered under Aeri's name for unknown reasons, she had to register the tracker under Geunwook's name so Seojin9 can use it to track Dabin.

 

There's a chunk of events still missing. Aeri's last conversation with Seojin9 was before he tracked Dabin. It's natural that she feels worried for him when he doesn't pick up for days...and the next time he calls her...she lashes out but he mutters 'help me. Now it's October'. He could possibly tried to contact her too but can't get through because she's in custody. I don't really know what to predict with this drama and I actually like it. Hahaha. 

 

Why was Aeri caught at the scene and not Kim Jin Ho? This is how I saw the events leading to her capture:

1) Aeri can't contact Seojin9. She doesn't know what happened and decides to stop the kidnapping herself. First she pastes the poster on Seojin's door. 

2) Aeri and gang kept an eye on Dabin and Kim Jin Ho during the event. They didn't keep tabs on DG and Lee Taek Gyu, because up to this point, nothing connected both DG and LTG to Dabin's kidnapping. DG and LTG were connected to Aeri's murder and her mum's dissappearance only. 

3) Seojin scolded Dabin as per ep 1. But this time, there's an additional scene: DoGyun consoled Dabin and tells her he'll show her a huge teddy bear. I deduce this is why Dabin went down during the event. (DG and HC even made sure to introduce Dabin to JinHo, so it would be easy for her to follow him).

4) Aeri sees Dabin going out and tries to follow, nearly get caught by DoGyun but managed to run away

5) Aeri was caught by standby cops. The cops were planted by Seojin at the event. He planned to capture Aeri based on all evidence he has: she kept meeting him and told him about a future kidnapping and the poster was the last straw for him. He probably just allowed her to enter the venue so he can catch her red-handed.

 

Thinking about it...the kidnapping in ep 8 was not only stopped by Aeri but it was also stopped by Seojin. The kidnapping didn't occur because Seojin planted cops at the venue and he had a suspicious target which is Aeri. That's why we saw him looking down at Aeri instead of looking super worried like in ep 1 because in this new event...he was aware a kidnapping could happen and was prepared for it, unfortunately his logical mind paints Aeri as suspicious and he see's her as a threat. Hyunchae was mad at him for hiding cops at the event without her knowledge, her original nefarious plans might be revealed if not for Aeri and Seojin that day.

 

I want Seojin9 back. The Seojin that talked to Aeri~~~ huhuhu. @Shinobui lowkey support Aeri8-Seojin9, there's something in their conversations and how they comfort each other via calls and messages. I hope they really meet in the future.

One thing I really found about these two episodes was that they are now showing dates when timeline changes from Ae Ri to Seo Jin. Although I didn't find it confusing, but seeing some posts here, I was sure that there many people who would feel the same way and be confused about the timeline. 

 

Coming to the episodes, the pace of this is amazing, and while initially we all thought (or at least I did) that saving Da Bin would the endgame, it actually came as the end of first half. Loved the overall things happening, sometimes I really feel that a lot happens in just one episode of this drama and they are doing a good job not wasting much screen time here. 

 

The biggest revelation in my opinion happened at the end of episode 7th, and I really wonder now, with the future changed once again thanks to Ae Ri, and knowing that whenever changes happen in the future timeline, it is only Seo Jin who knows about the changes and it does not affect his memory, I wonder how he will move ahead knowing his wife's real face and she being behind it all. Now the accident itself is not really the endgame, since if it really is, then the whole connection between Ae Ri and Seo Jin of future will end rather abruptly. It is also amazing to see that current is also having memory surges which means that those memory surge is a 2 way thing. Now that current Seo Jin actually came into the timeline where everything started, he is now getting the memories of future Seo Jin, since well, they got to be same person here.

 

Talking about Hyun Chae, this woman is something else. Sometimes I feel like even Do Kyun feels scared of her. While Do Kyun could be the brains and mastermind of Da Bin's kidnapping, I can see how well emotionally he is being controlled and manipulated by her. Within this trio of Do Kyun, Tae Kyu and Hyun Chae, till 8th episode, I found him more sane. He still has got some humanity in him, and does not want to go the dirty way. But he seems to be mistaken here, and I firmly believe that Hyun Chae is going to abandon him when the time comes, and he will realize things only when he gets backstabbed by her. But this dude sure is perceptive and even though he had been having doubts about Ae Ri and her constant warnings, he does feel like it is not really a co-incidence that she is the cause of his brilliantly planned kidnapping. 

 

What I still am not understanding is the fact that why Hyun Chae is doing all this? Does she want to run away with Seo Jin's money? That's it? It could be a good motivation, but to me it feels weak. From the looks of it, we'll see more of the chairman too in the coming episodes and more about the building collapse incident of past will come into light. But once again, I don't understand whose side is Lee Tae Kyu really? If he is on Do Kyun's side then why should they actually worry about Ae Ri's mom revealing stuff of that past incident. Looking at their age I don't really think they are directly involved in it, and by the looks of it they both want to run away too when their plan works and Hyun Chae gets the money. So the overall involvement of Ae Ri's mom with both Jin Ho and Tae Kyu, their apparent deaths linked directly with him kind of makes me wonder who is related to which incident. Hyun Chae does not look to be in the mood of revenge, all she wants is to run away with Seo Jin;s money and live a new life. 

 

But as I said this woman is something else, her reaction and replies to Kim Seo Jin asking her why she lied to him was not normal. It was as if she had prepared for it all from the beginning. It will be interesting now, seeing Da Bin with her dad, and Seo Jin seemingly back with Hyun Chae, which I think is mostly because he wants to know what exactly she has been scheming, and is someone involved in their car accident? Definitely in my opinion.

This drama gives a lot of anxiety, it should come with a disclaimer. lol. The whole time I was watching episode 8 all I could think was-DAMN YOU SEO JIN. 

 

Seo jin was a huge jerk to Aeri. The girl was doing so much for him and this is how he repays? I was so looking forward for them to meet and it turns out like this! He calls her crazy and disgusting. If there is one crazy in the drama it's his wife Hyun Chae. There is something about her eyes, it's soulless, murderous and screams evil every time she stares. She gives me the chills. Evil witch. 

 

The car crash at the ending, Was that future seo jin or the one from the present time line ? Does future seo jin even exist?I am confused because going by the hairstyle it's future seo jin but we saw him burn into ashes previously. 

 

So If it's the seo jin of the present timeline then I'm guessing he got his memories back while driving his family home and some how ended up crashing the car or money minded Lee Tae Kyu organised the car crash to make things easier for him(he certainly doesn't listen to Do Kyun and has an own way of doing things). This seems to be a sudden end to Hyun Chae's character(from the preview,  she's dead). Such a strong antagonist wouldn't bow out soon (she has unfinished business with the burnt man)  unless there is some one hiding in the dark to fill in the gap. My bet is on the chairman for the story to continue. All the calls Aeri's mom was making seems to be to him. Let's see how this drama unfolds.. Can't wait to see what happens next!
