Final Review: Voice


We did have some characters that didn’t get utilized aside from their own experience in either getting them to join Golden Time Team, or create speculations on who the mole is. But, their side conversations that help the storyline go along, so I’m no going to comment further than that.

Chairman Mo took the easy way out just like a gangster would. I thought that it would be Dae Shik taking that route because he already knows that he’s a no name detective and with this behind him, he won’t have any career as a cop. I’m still not sure how I feel about just leaving him in a coma. A part or me wishes that he’d be alive working a different job, or a volunteer in a welfare center or something.

Below is a screencap of my review for episode 15 on a facebook discussion group.

I was right that Tae Gu ended up in a hospital instead of jail. What I didn’t expect is that he met the same fate he gave to his victims. He deserved it though, and much more. I’m sure if he had been sent to jail, he’d end up with the same fate – the difference could be that it’s ordered by other rival corporations who’s eager to their place as the new thugs in town.

Tae Gu was the star of this show. The second he was introduced, I knew that this show will be about him. I just wanted to know more about him, what makes him tick. I wanted to get in his head and play his games with him. He’s like a kid playing a game, but his game is called Murder with a touch of Hide and Seek, and his dad enables him by playing his own game of Monopoly. I LOVE IT. His character was written flawlessly, and I couldn’t think of any other actor who could play this better than Kim Jae Wook did.

I’m happy for Kwon Joo that she’s been vindicated that her dad was murdered along with Jin Hyuk’s wife. It’s a comfort that she has use for her skills now, it would’ve been more useful if she has been promoted to detective and work alongside Jin Hyuk. As for Jin Hyuk, he’s finally able to let go of look forward to living life.

Maybe because I always wanted to be in the law enforcement field growing up, [I read every Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys book – my favorite author is Agatha Christie], but this show wrapped up nicely for me. I got the ending I wanted, if not expected, from the writers. From episode one to the end, I was on the edge of my seat. It was brilliantly written, directing, and editing. Not to mention the cast portraying their characters….reaching out to me to root for them to win, and some to die. There was not an episode, and please correct me if I’m wrong that there wasn’t a Golden Time call that they didn’t solve. Best part is that somehow they managed to connect all the webs back to Tae Gu. Sure it didn’t have my criteria for a “trifecta” but I rarely need it for psychological thrillers anyway. I’m in it for the gore, OCN gave that to me. I’m in it for the handsome devil god, OCN gave me that too. I’m in it to bring down the corrupt government officials, and OCN gave me that. So I don’t need a bubblegum OST, to go with the script, and a love line. But, it wouldn’t hurt to show one 20 second clip of Jin Hyuk waiting for Kwon Joo leaving work and have drinks together, would it?

Drama Review: 3/6/17

As of this post, I’ve watched:

Missing 9: 9-14

I finally caught up with this show! I thought that this will be a new addition to my dropped dramas for 2017. Thank goodness I forced myself to get to this point.

Ho Hang, Ki Joon, and Ji Ah are the next survivors to have made it back to Seoul, but they were all threatened by CEO Jang/Tae Ho to pin all the murders to Joon Oh. Chairwoman Jo publicly announced that Joon Oh is responsible for the crimes, and closed the case. She also had some guts to run for Congress.

As Joon Oh quietly came back to Korea, Prosecutor Yoon and his team are already on the hunt for So Hee’s phone, but so is CEO Jang, and Tae Ho. Thanks to Joon Oh, he was able to get the evidence they need, and come up with a plan to distract Tae Ho’s attention while Prosecutor Yoon hold his press conference that CEO Jang was Jae Hyun’s murderer, and Tae Ho is his accomplish. 

***Watching this show is like opening a new grab box with tons of little presents inside in every episode. It was a long, and frustrating wait for me to get here, and I ALMOST gave up on the show, and I’m glad that I took the time to catch up and endure every defeat, but I tell you, it’s definitely worth the exasperating wait. I can only stand for so much conspiracy and corruption in six hours.

We were given contrasts between Joon Oh and Tae Ho. They survived without nothing in the island together, but were all banded- even enjoying happy moments together under Joon Oh’s leadership in the island even though they lost So Hee, and Yeol. It became a real survivor show under Tae Ho as their leader, ghost leader since being controlled by CEO Jang to begin with. They’re together for show but divided in private. 

It was frustrating to watch Bong Hee gets railroaded in each episode since Tae Ho came back. It was disturbing that Ho Hang, Ki Joon, and Ji Ah had to betray Bong Hee because they had no choice but to survive. They were rendered powerless under Legend Entertainment even though Ji Ah was kicking ass in the hospital. It was annoying to know that a prosecutor cannot do anything about it, at least not at the moment. He was too gentle to be a prosecutor. It was really infuriating to watch Tae Ho, CEO Jang, and the Chairwoman to just manipulate this entire investigation to their own advantage. My God, this show was written to get these emotions out of me, and it worked! I didn’t want to stop watching because I wanted so much for Tae Ho and CEO Jang sent to jail.

Now that Joon Oh is back, our team is back together [in secret] with their new recruit Prosecutor. It’s sad because I felt that he’s a stand in for So Hee. I love that their camaraderie and teamwork still prevailed outside the island. Who knew that it would take CEO Hwang to get them back together like this? It took FOREVER [and I counted!] to get here. Hey, better late than never. Joon Oh gets to be the forgiving saint of the year for understanding Ho Hang, Ki Joon, and Ji Ah in agreeing to pin the murders in the island on him. Gotta love him for that! 

Jae Hyun’s entire story is finally revealed. To summarize, he’s the voice of Tae Ho. Without him, there is no Dreamers. Tae Ho of course knew that too, it’ll be a big scandal. He was led to believe that he killed him by CEO Jang who was the real murderer. So Hee however, knew this and used this against both of them while trying not to lose it mentally when she disclosed the information to Reporter Kim. This plane crash is all about burying Jae Hyun’s murder and everyone that’s involved in it, albeit with a few innocent ones just to make this plot look like a tragedy. Who knew that it would be So Hee to do that in the end for him? It did come full circle for her.

It’s bittersweet knowing that the Missing 9 is now the Magnificent 7, but a few had to pay the price in order for Jae Hyun to get the justice he deserves, and for Joon Oh to clear his innocence since the beginning. It’s not time for closure yet since we still have two more episodes left, and anything can still happen. 

Now that everything’s out in the open, I’m curious how this play out in the finale week. Will CEO Jang have more under his sleeve?  As for Tae Ho, we were given a glimpse of his true self in the past. He was willing to turn himself in. Will he turn himself in, or is he in too deep and go all out? He better not kill himself – that’d be too bad for the show if the writers do write him off that way. Either way, he still committed crimes, which is one too many, but if everyone was able to forgive him the first time in the island, they can still be there for him when this all ends. I haven’t given up hope that Yeol is alive with amnesia but if he isn’t, it’d be nice if they recover his body at least. 

Rebel: 9-10 

Gil Dong’s plan for revenge is slowly but efficiently rolling. Eop San returned with sad news about Gil Hyeon, and Oh Ri Ni. Ah Mo Gae pleads with Gil Dong to abandon his revenge after realizing that he got his strength back. Gil Hyeon decided to study for the state exam after learning his family’s fate. Ho Tae Hak is forced to work with Gil Dong. The King is still unable to control his court. Nok Soo misses opportunities to get close to the King, but got one chance that captured his heart. 

***I forgot everything I was going to write after watching Nok Soo’s dance. It was magnificent.

Gil Dong sure has both the brains and the strength to get his revenge. He’s almost psychopathic at his approach, the way he was able to get to Ho Tae Hak by messing with him mentally. Nok Soo’s plan at getting her own power is also underway. It’s a nice parallel, I wonder what will happen when those lines meet, and they face each other?

Ga Ryung proved to be helpful, and I feel bad that Gil Dong can’t reciprocate her feelings. I understand Gil Dong’s side. She reminds him of his sister that he was responsible for, and lost her. I’m sure he thinks it’s best if he kept her at a distance to keep her safe. But we already know since the beginning, that Ga Ryung will do anything for Gil Dong, even if it kills her.

Gil Hyeon is set to become a government official. Will he able to get on the King’s good side? If he does, does this mean that the two brothers will be at odds with each other?

Mo Ri is a character I’m closely watching since I don’t know yet if he’s going to join Gil Dong, or end up going against Ho Tae Hak. He does look like he’s sick and tired of the way the Prince is treating his boss, but I don’t know yet how he’d react once he realizes that the same boss joined hands with their former enemy. I’m still holding on to the idea that he has Oh Ri Ni.

Do Bong Soon: 3-4 

Our partners for justice is getting closer by the hour. Min Hyuk is falling ever deeper in love for Bong Soon, and he doesn’t even deny it anymore. Min Hyuk was attacked and asked for help from the only half brother he trusts. Bong Soon is having a hard time controlling both her feelings and her strength. There’s not much progress in Gook Du’s case, as their criminal took another victim to his lair. 

***It’s finally time to say goodbye to Goblin. This show will forever be in my kdrama heart and soul. 

I luv luv luv this show! I can’t stop laughing. I’m enjoying this show so much, that I couldn’t properly concentrate/think/analyze what’s going on. I’d have to re-watch this just to see any inconsistencies in the sequencing, editing of the show like the last few minutes of episode 1. But either way, I’m not complaining. I’m not even going to begin how the writers are going to put all the serious plots together, add romance, and the hijinks of comedy.

Not much happened in episode 3, but I still loved every interaction between our couple. I swear I get a kick out of Min Hyuk every time he gets hurt by Bong Soon. I also just melt each time he lets loose around her. If only he knew that the woman in his closet is her. I can’t wait for that reveal.  I just empathize with Bong Soon at how annoyed she gets at her boss. I can watch these two all day. 

So, it looks like our show has three separate “cases” to solve. 1. Gook Du’s kidnapper/murderer who Bong Soon recognizes by voice. 2. Ahn Min Hyuk’s stalker[s]/mastermind, and 3. The gangster boss who’s after Bong Soon, and Min Hyuk. Unless, they are all connected anyway. 

Don’t’ forget the loveliness: 1. Min Hyuk/Bong Soon 2. Gook Du/Bong Soon 3. Gook Du/Ji Hee 4. Bong Gi/Ji Hee. We already know that Min Hyuk is smitten with Bong Soon, we can foretell that Ji Hee and Gook Du’s relationship is headed for an ice berg. It’s only a matter of time Gook Do will realize his true feelings for Bong Soon, which will lead Ji Hee towards Bong Gi 

Park Hyung Sik as Min Hyuk is perfect. I really couldn’t imagine any other actor playing this role. He’s so charismatic as a man, yet so gently gay. He’s perfect. He’s got this character down to a tee! I’m still trying to connect to Ji Soo’s character as Gook Do. Hopefully, we get to see some sort of emotional backstory about him [yes, I love backstories], and maybe I can understand why he’s the way he is. I’m already cheering for Park Bo Yong since the show started. Everything about her Bong Soon character is so intriguingly lovable. 

Voice: 13-14 

What a week! I swear OCN is the go to network for crime thrillers. 

Kwon Joo reveals to Jin Hyeok that his wife was involved with GP Development. Nam Sang Tae is Tae Gu’s latest victim after wanting to make a deal with Jin Hyeok. We saw a glimpse of Tae Gu’s childhood. He’s a psycho since then! Commissioner Bae pulled the plug on the Golden Time Team, but that won’t stop Kwon Joo, and Jin Hyuk from investigating their three year old case. Kwon Joo, and Jin Hyuk finally meets Tae Gu. 

***The narration of Eun Soo, she said, “from the thrilling vibration he feels every time he strikes the iron ball, the fishy scent of blood that pumps the heart, and the police chase that leads them to a different place as he wants…..all of these things excited him”. He’s a natural born psycho. He pretty much got away with everything because his father let him. The fault lies in the father because he enabled it. I won’t be surprised that Tae Gu will kill him in the end. I have a feeling that there’s more to this than what we were given. Who/What/Why/When does these triggers these psychopathic rampages? From what I’ve gathered, everything that he killed, “bit” him back. 

Was I the only one that feels that Tae Gu is turned on by Kwon Joo? 

I have to give it to the writers in bringing all their 112 calls almost closely related to GP/Sungwon Express. We can still have one last plot twist before the finale….will there be another victim? Will Dae Shik change his mind and reveal Tae Gu’s evil plot? Will Tae Gu’s father finally turn his son in?
Thank you to the cameraman who steadily shot his scenes for this episode. I didn’t get dizzy at all.

Stay tuned.

 

Kdrama News: OCN’s Voice Under Censorship Review

The Korean Communications Standards Commission has recently submitted OCN’s action drama “Voice” for censorship review.
Soompi reported this first. Read the post here: OCN’s “Voice” Gets Submitted For Censorship Review Due To Violent Scenes

I knew cable channels didn’t have as much restriction as broadcast networks. But, given the rise in popularity of cable dramas lately, I am not surprised that this show was sent for review. I must admit, that it did get a little too gory in the last few episodes, that I had to wait for my ten year old daughter to go to sleep before I watch this show.

I do hope that this doesn’t change anything in the writing or directing for future episodes. We were just getting to the good parts.

Drama Review: 2/13/17

As of this post, I’ve watched:
Rebel: 3-4
This week’s episode connected with me in a different way. This was Ah Mo Gae’s week to shine. From Ah Mo Gae the servant, smuggler, acquitted murderer, to leader of a village, he really is no ordinary servant. Most of all, he did for the love of his children, who grew up becoming what they wanted to be, with Ah Mo Gae supporting them while leading a village.
I’d like to point out first, that I’m not saying that what Ah Mo Gae did was right in any way, that is a crime punishable by law to this day, no matter what country you reside in. I connected with Ah Mo Gae because he somewhat mirrored my situation. Everything I’ve earned, I take the chance to get my kids something they like, even though I’ve been told to spend it on me.  I’ve lived my life to this day at the bottom of the totem pole. With all the things I can do, and actually finish in a workday, I still can’t get that moment of recognition from the higher ups, yet those who sit, play on their phones, nothing but and socialize gets all the praise and recognition. I have two kids, and each one with a different dad, BOTH dads are there for their kids emotionally, physically, not just financially. It’s nice for my kids to have a dad to rely on where I’m lacking.
I really enjoyed this week’s episodes. Okay, I didn’t enjoy the whole trial for Ah Mo Gae and what he and his sons had to go through emotionally. h Mo Gae, he’s just too brilliant to be a servant, who served the same family for 40 years, yet that noble family gets away with all sorts of abuse towards him and his family. I would lose it too, if I was him. S***t, I’d spill all the beans too to bring those who wronged me down, although I wouldn’t go as far as murder in my lifetime.
I loved how he was able to find the master’s wife’s weakness, and used the law on them. I wish it didn’t have to come to murder, but it’s sooooooooo gratifying to see the master’s wife shaking in fear thinking what Ah Mo Gae can really do. It is soooooooooo worth it to see the “nobles” being exposed as to who they really are. It excites me that the rich are scared of the poor. These episodes isn’t just about social class, this is also about how a father will do ANYTHING to protect, and provide a future for his children. What got to me is the part when he painted portrait for each his kids, where Gil Hyeon is an official, and Gil Dong a general, but his kids wanted something else…….and he let them be. That, fatherly love, is a rare gem in this modern age.

I’m kind of sad that the kids’ parts are over, but, I’m looking forward to their grown up counterparts and how things change for the Mighty Child.
Missing 9: 7-8
More twists and turns this week…..
Back in the island, Bong Hee and Joon Oh seems to get closer, Ji Ah, and Ki Joon are in a should we/shouldn’t we really date phase. Another survivor emerged in the form of reporter Ki Won who seems to have evidence that Tae Ho is the root of all the murders, starting from Jae Hyun, to which he admitted before Joon Oh claims Tae Ho’s life. The castaways were rescued.
In the present, Bong Hee reveals Tae Ho’s crimes, and naming Ho Hang as witness. Tae Ho has been revealed that he is alive, and reveals in the press conference that Joon Oh is the criminal. CEO Jang seems to be in the know of Tae Ho’s criminal activities. Ho Hang also returns to Korea, but Tae Ho got to him first and forced him to name Bong Hee as Joon Oh’s accomplice.
We finally get to see the story of Jae Hyun, and why everyone hated Joon Oh.  Jae Hyun just wants to debut, but can’t because the trio still needs him. Joon Oh wants him to debut too, but CEO Hwang had other plans in mind, and he was tasked to convince Jae Hyun no matter what.
Wow, that’s too many revelations in one week’s worth of episodes. Tae Ho is a classic serial killer. Sure, it was unintended with Tae Ho, but we all know once you’ve done it- you can do it again. Maybe it was just as unintentional with Yeol, but there’s definitely intent with So Hee, and motive with Ki Won. But- I still give him the benefit of the doubt that maybe he’s doing CEO Jang’s bidding.
I have no theories as to what can happen next week. This is how good this show is, that I can’t predict what’s going to happen next. There’s still a lot that we don’t know, like what else did Tae Ho do?
Voice: 7-8
We’re halfway into the series, Jin Hyuk, and Gwon Joo are closer to finding the owner of the voice who killed his wife and her father. We’re introduced to new characters this week that ties one case to another.
The Surimdong case is underway when they found the real landlord stuffed in a closet as a tenant was threatening who he thought was Bong Soon, only after an interrogation they found that Chun Ok was being threatened, and Yoong Won was not the one that actually killed the owner of their building.  Jin Hyuk received a lead regarding the Hwang Kyung Il case, only to be betrayed by his informant. He then meets Nam Sang Tae who admitted to killing his wife……or did he? Chun Ok was found murdered, and the next targets are Gwon Joo and Jin Hyuk. Lesson for the day, detective work isn’t just thinking skills, it’s physical work.
I like how it starts as a 911 call, but they’re all connected to one case from three years ago. Gah!!!! I have to wait until next week! AGAIN. OCN really has a knack for crime shows, and whatever it is – I keep coming back for the next. We didn’t get a cliffhanger from another call this time which was good. It has worked the last few weeks, but honestly, I don’t know for how long that will work. So it’s good that things changed a bit.
The show is starting to tie the cases together. Lesson for the day, detective work isn’t just thinking skills, it’s physical work. The writers should take that lesson to heart, and give Gwon Joo actual physical detective work that can work for her aside from being stuck in a call center. Her getting kidnapped does not count as physical work. Yes, her skillset involves her hearing skills, and her job is to answer calls. But what happens when that is gone??? Also, Jin Hyuk can’t be the only one who does the physical action scenes. I’m not complaining – since their action sequence was great, but I’d like to see more cops fighting alongside of him.
I didn’t believe that Sang Tae killed Jin Hyuk’s wife, and Gwon Joo’s dad, because he himself is responding/reporting to someone else. In other words, he’s taking orders as well. When I saw Tae Gu, I knew it’s him. He’s the owner of the voice. My question is does everyone in the gang have some dental work done resulting in cracking sounds? First it was Kwang Il, then Sang Tae, and Tae Gu [at least I think it’s him].
I still think Dae Shik, Chief Jang, and the Commissioner are all in this somehow. I did find it a little weird where Hyun Yo was specifically mentioned….is he connected too? They’ve made it known that he’s rich, so why need to work as a cop, or even recommended for the call center?
Stay tuned.

Drama Review: 2/6/17

As of this post, I’ve watched:

Rebel: 1-2

As with any historical dramas, we get to see the childhood events that shaped our characters’ future.

Gil Dong’s family are servants to a nobleman. He inherited a gift of strength from his father, which only his father knows. His father is very loyal to his family and doted on Gil Dong especially. He is too smart to be a servant though, and his goal is to buy their freedom for the sake of Gil Dong and his family. His father who is too smart to be a servant, was able to convince his employer to live outside on their own.

Gil Dong struggled to keep his strength a secret, which once in a while gets him in trouble. Gil Dong loses his mother after giving birth to his sister, and his father ended up murdering his master which Gil Dong witnessed.

The Crown Prince  is questioning why he can’t call his father- Father, and as to why he doesn’t live in the palace. He deduced that he’ll have the same fate as her brother who passed because he lived there. On the political front, there are “talks” to return the dethroned queen back to her place.

We’re still ways away from seeing the grown up versions of our show. We still need to see how the main characters tie together. With the number of years I’ve been watching kdramas, I honestly have not watched any of the previous Hong Gil Dong adaptation/retelling, so I wouldn’t have anything to compare this to. Which can be a good thing because I’d only be focused on this adaptation. For now, I’m interested enough to keep watching.

Missing 9: 5-6

We get more Island time in these two episodes, and we also get more revelations from their time together.As Tae Ho makes his escape with the co-pilot, President Hwang, and So Hee – they were of course thwarted by the rest of the gang. In the process, Bong Hee and So Hee gets stuck on another island, while the others makes an attempt to rescue them. Joon Oh manages to rescue both So Hee and Bong Hee. Only for Tae Ho claiming two lives -Yeol and So Hee in his desperation to live and his secrets to be buried.

In the present time, President Hwang did escape from the island, only to survive a murder attempt that places him in a coma. So Hee’s brother gets a hold of Bong Hee’s confession, and pressures the chairwoman to make a public announcement regarding So Hee’s murderer, but in the nick of time, Bong Hee remembers everything until Tae Ho emerges as another survivor…

Wow. Tae Ho is setting up to be the villain here. It’d be interesting to see how he will manipulate the public because it’ll be definitely Bong Hee’s words vs his. Who will be on who’s side? Are there any more survivors……

Voice: 5-6

We’re almost halfway into the series, and the plot is underway to solve the one case that started it all. Who owns the voice that killed Kwon Joo’s father, and Jin Hyuk’s wife?

As always, Jin Hyuk beat the Serious Crime Unit in rescuing Kwon Joo, and Eun Byul. Jin huyk had made up his mind, and will stay with Golden Time team, while the rest of his old teammates wonder what will happen to them. Kwang Il is connected to the Eunhyungdong Incident three years ago, and he’s the only witness left, until he was murdered while under police custody. Kwon Joo is ever resolute that there is a cop that’s helping the murderer. It turns out it was Chief Jang all along. The police commissioner is too eager to cover up their mistake as well and dared Kwon Joo that her team will be disbanded if it’s proven that her ulterior motive to is to investigate her father’s death.

Jin Hyuk, and Kwon Joo set out to re-investigate this case on their own – trusting no one. Although we get to see the murderer in action, we still have no clue as to his real identity. Unfortunately, he’s been tipped that he’s being investigated. On the brighter side, Eun Soo decided to join Golden Time Team after all.  As usual, the team gets a call and this time they find a dead body.

I get that they need to establish the Golden Time Team and show it by solving the crimes as they get the calls. We’re there now. They’ve solved every crime within Golden Time, can we see them drink at a pochamanga or have gogi now? Can we start showing that they’re getting along as a team? Right now, the only team I see is Gwon Joo and Jin Hyuk, and even then, they’re still not trusting of each other.

I didn’t mention this before. When I first started watching this show, I thought that Dae Shik is somewhat connected to the murderer, and boy was I wrong. I’d like to think that Chief Jang’s involvement is not voluntary, that he had no choice. I’d like to see him redeem himself, as I’m worried that he’ll be a casualty in the upcoming episodes.

OCN has a way of really making me come back for more. I don’t see or feel any chemistry within the characters, yet here I am watching this show as soon as it’s up for viewing. Whatever it is, it’s working and although I can’t say that I’m hooked, I think I’m more curious to see how everything will tie up in the end.

LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT THE LEAST

Goblin Special 1-2

Yoo In Na, and Lee Dong Wook are the commentators for this special. Lee El provided an emotional narration  of our ShinTak love story. Sunny/Grim Reaper’s love story,and the Bromance between our Goblin/GR were also highlighted.Secretary Kim fulfilled his pledge. We got a behind the scenes look at how Goblin was made. From makeup, costumes, CGI’s to NG’s. Sorry GongEun shippers, we didn’t get what we were waiting for….but I think it’s safe to say that Lee Dong Wook, and Yoo In Na are the captains of this ship. Lee Dong Wook may know more than what he looks.

It’s no surprise that the cast and crew are suffering from withdrawal symptoms as Yoo In Na, and Lee Dong Wook said during this special episode. Just like us, they both expressed an interest in a potential season two. But, all good things come to an end.

Even in the saddest scenes, I was happy. Every moment that I watched Goblin shined. In my next life, I will still remember Goblin.

Drama Premiere: January

Wow! It’s already February. Are you still suffering from the Goblin syndrome, or are you ready to move on? Personally, it takes me a while to find a new drama to follow right after a crack drama. I have a couple of dramas that I’m already following before Goblin ended, so the fall into withdrawal symptoms isn’t as bad, but, I must admit – there is probably no other drama that can make me move on right away.

If you’re ready to move on wondering what other dramas are out there in kdramaland that you can marathon, below is a list of shows that premiered in January.

Drama Review: 1/22/17

As of this post I’ve watched:

Goblin: 14, 15,and 16
2016 ended and 2017 started with Goblin. What an AMAZING series. I know that it will take me sometime to get over this show, like 939 to 200 years. Some viewers might still be upset at how it ended, but I still believe that it’s an appropriate way to end the show. I absolutely loved everything about this drama.

//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=am0res80-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B01NBVXGOL&asins=B01NBVXGOL&linkId=57392d18791e3238a251336e9f70420f&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066C0&bg_color=FFFFFF

Missing 9: 1-2
This show reminds me of the US show LOST, but I like the fact that I’m not going to wait 6 seasons/years to see how this played out. It caught my interest, and I’m curious how/when the flashbacks will end, and if Bong Hee IS the only survivor.

Voice: 3-4
I think what kept me from coming back to the show is because of the cliffhangers in the end of episodes. They got me at the edge of my seat, then bam! I won’t know until Saturday what happens. I absolutely need to know if they will be successful in their rescue in 10 minutes. That, and I also want to know who the killer is that they’re both trying to look for. OCN – really likes their crime thrillers.

Need to catch up on:

Hwarang: 5 – current episode
I haven’t connected to the show as of yet, which is normal. I usually get hooked halfway if the plot progresses.
