Just watched ep 15 and I'm surprised the rating went below 9%. I guess people want more action and admittedly there were a few hiccups. It was a very bad decision for the counters to separate, knowing that the evil spirit can transfer between the mayor and his son. Considering it is unlikely something will happen between So Mun and Ha-na, the writers should not have included the scene when Mo-tak was teasing the two. The moment when So Mun's eyes glowed blue after absorbing the second Yung spirit was cool. I hope the final episode is really good because I'm hoping they can beat their highest rating.

I don't mind the teasing because it's typical of adults teasing kids who are friends and the kids rolling the eyes and telling them to stop.

 

I think the ratings decrease is because some people think the recent episodes aren't as good and are not happy about the original writer stepping down.  Unfortunately, I think the slight controversy with the writer stepping down created some negativity about the drama.  I wish we could know what the original writer had planned because I could definitely see there was a different feel in these later episodes.  The drama was exploding in popularity when she was writing so why exactly did the production disagree so vehemently that she came off the drama?  Even so, the ratings in the 8% are still excellent and incredibly high for OCN so that shows just how high expectations are for this drama!

It took another death for them to realise that they need to always work together.

I appreciated Son Ho Jun's appearance as it did add to SM's powers (although I was sad at how this came about.)

 

It's the final episode tonight so I'll just sit back and enjoy the final BIG BOSS!

Right?  They should have realised that a long time ago!  I was surprised how much Son Ho Jun gelled with the drama.  Sad we won't see him return.

 

I really enjoyed the final episode and I the satisfactory way it wrapped everyone's stories - even the mayor's son. Also want to given an honourable mention for the underrated but awesome Chairman Jang-Mul who doesn't get as much love as the main four Counters.  Loved the compilation of our Counters kickarse moments throughout the drama at the end. 

 

I do have some quibbles like what happened to the new Yung and So mun's healing power and Mrs Chu's illness(set up for Season 2?) from episode 15, the new telekinesis power wasn't explained well, Mun's friends were used  and the PPL was so jarring.  

I wanted to wait until the drama ended to decide what I thought about the new writer.  I do agree these later episodes were not as strong and there was an obvious shift in the tone and storytelling. It wasn't bad and still very enjoyable but there was a marked difference in feeling to the earlier episodes.  To be fair, I feel like so many K-dramas tend to be weaker in the second half anyway and it isn't easy to board a drama in the last quarter.  Regardless, what always remained strong was the acting and the amazing chemistry between the Counters.  I'm not usually one for multi-season dramas but I'm excited to see season 2 of this drama:blush:

 

Episode 16 scored 11% which is the highest rating of the whole drama (and any OCN drama ever!) so I'm sure they are happy!:piggydance:

 

Thanks to this drama to introducing me to so many great actors from the main cast to our favourite evil spirit couple to the supporting cast. I am looking forward to their future projects.  Thanks also to OCN who gave the audience so many great behind the scenes goodies AND English subs!:fullofhearts:

The Uncanny Counter family have finished filming Season 1!  

I watched the finale without the subs.  A nice ending and a new set of uniform for our counters.  They looked like they are being promoted to the next level of executives.:tounge_wink:  So mun met his parents atlast.

I'm looking forward to watching the last couple episodes! :D I'm a bit behind because of RL, so I haven't read the spoilers for the recent episodes and for the finale either.

I was expecting a more drawn out fight scene in the finale but it ending up being just the opening act as the finale was all about tying up loose ends. Finally So Mun meets his long lost parents, Ha-na has found peace and Mo-tak has found justice. Happy that they reached their highest rating ever and am looking forward to season 2. Going to be interesting who their nemesis is going to be considering they already fought a level 4.

Yes, I was expecting a bigger fight. I also expected the Counters would have some sort of clever plan but it was just to meet up in the location of choice of the villain and everybody else gets their bums kicked until SM got mad enough for his new powers to kick in?  I also didn't like that forced angst when the mayor revealed he had kidnapped Mun's grandparents and SM hesitated.  SM's hesitation made no sense because the sooner he defeated the mayor, the sooner he would lose his powers and his grandparents would escape his clutches.

 

I am still definitely looking froward to Season 2.  it will be nice to see cheerful Mun back now he has finally spoken to his parents and what they will face this time.  I hope we see the new Yung and SM's new healing power because episode 16 seemed to forget that had even happened:unsure:

 

Comparison with the webtoon and drama scene in their suits:

 

The Counters with their amazing stunt doubles:

 

Yeom Hye Ran (Mrs Chu) Netflix interview.  She looks so pretty!  They should let Mrs Chu dye her hair like Son Ho Jun's character did.

 

Thanks a lot for the gifs :glasses:@pad-hari

Haha, such good points!

 

I really enjoyed it. It was really fun, and also genuinely scary at times. The evil spirits were so scary!

 

I'm so happy that Yu Jun-Sang was in a good show. His last two were... uh, not as good.

 

And I will always root for Yeom Hye-Ran. The whole cast was great, and I'm looking forward to S2.

LOL! I noticed a few inconsistencies like this. I think this was down to the issues caused by the writer upheaval.

Yes, I'm really happy for all the amazing cast.  They all got a big boost out of The Uncanny Counter from the stars to the supporting actors.

 

A special variety show will air on TVN and OCN called The Uncanny Return this Sunday 7th February with lots of the cast.

OCN also created a cool new title sequence including the supporting cast to promote
