Drama Hangout: Pied Piper

Now comes a Drama Hangout for a show we haven’t gotten to weigh in on yet, though certainly not for lack of trying. Pied Piper premiered on tvN last week in the slot previously occupied by Cheese in the Trap, and though it’s not the instant ratings hit Cheese was (though that climb gradually tapered off into a plateau), it’s a show that’s got critics abuzz with excitement.

For those readers who’ve visited other Hangouts for other shows, welcome! For those who haven’t, welcome! This is a feature that’s still in its infancy stages, but the idea is pretty simple: Talk all you want! As long as it’s about the given show, of course. Or maybe it works better to say: The world is your oyster! As long as your oyster is the world of Pied Piper. You get it.

Though unfortunately not a sequel to Liar Game, Pied Piper is helmed by the same PD-writer team, and brings lavish visuals to an already taut story dealing with police negotiators and the world of media reporting. It’s exciting stuff by nature, so here’s hoping this awesome team retains their mojo for the show’s entire run. Who knows—maybe if they do, we’ll actually get a Liar Game 2. But back onto the topic at hand…

I confess that I am a little disappointed with Dramafever and Viki not getting the license for some of the shows I am interested in. I was also looking for Mrs.Cop2 , Babysitter by KBS and Jang Young Shil but couldn't find some of those dramas even listed!

I think there's a very good chance Babysitter will be on KBS World's youtube in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed.

KBS World is uploading Jang Young Shil to their official youtube channel with subs, if you hadn't checked there yet.

Mrs. Cop 2 is not on DF or viki, you're right, but at least there are subs for it out there, even if they're not quite above-board for some of us due to region restrictions.

Now this show, on the other hand, is really not subbed anywhere as far as I can tell, which is disappointing.

Much of the comments here will be about subs and not the drama.

How about the ratings? 3.6% is not bad for a Mon/Tues cable show.

It was a good start though its latest 2 episodes are drop to 2.3 - 2.5 %.

Border line rating for cable drama is 2 %, > 3 % is hit, double digits like Misaeng, Answer Me 1988 and Signal are super duper hits.

I'm frustrated for exactly the same reason ;). It's such a shame since SHK is a fantastic actor, maybe even one of the best of his generation, imho.

Yes, as much as I'd like to comment on the show itself, I can only currently bemoan the lack of subs. I know it doesn't have flower boys, but as someone who much prefers thrillers to romance, it would be great to see one of the streaming/subbing sites pick this up.

I've only seen the first episode, but it already blew me away! First there's the fantastic writing, as to be expected from Liar Game's team, incredibly tensely directed moments where it feels like everything is really at stake, and just sensational acting from Shin Ha-kyun.

Also, I didn't know Song Dong-Il was going to be in it, and the moment he showed up I nearly cried from my Answer Me hangover.

Re: Hangouts, it would be great if they were like weekly OTs instead of a single post, for a couple of reasons:
1- Spoilers!! With weekly threads, we know where we're at in the show, so even if we're not watching live, we can visit hangouts just as readers. Like, I just started Come Back Ajusshi but it's some weeks in and I fear for spoilers, thus cannot go the hangout.
2- But once I do get there, it's gone quietly to sleep. I think once it's off the front page, it goes off our radar and most people don't come back to it.

oh, how about instead of full recaps, on hangout shows, have only the 'comments' part to springboard the discussion?

Agreed! Weekly/every 2 episodes would be a great way - or even links off of a main page to a page for each episode. It does get tough wading through to find the current episode discussion.

Thanks for this Hangout, ... however I'm also of the opinion that it will be great if we can have instead of just this 1 post, a weekly 2 episode a week hangout.

I did take a brief look at the raw of bits of Ep 1 only. Maybe I'm spoiled by the pretty of DOTSun,... I found Pied Piper gritty, not pretty, with choppy/quick editing/cuts to scenes and not exactly easy to watch. Still I'm prepared to give it a try, and will wait patiently with the rest of us here for the subs.

It will be nice to watch Shin Ha Kyun in action again.

Thankyou @Growingbeautifully for sharing it with us,

Usually, DB only recap 1st ep of new drama,
and after that they will decide to recap it or not,
it was happened to Missing Noir M in last year, it didn't subbed until six episodes and DB only recapped 1st ep.

There's only 2 drama subbing sites. DF or viki. Consistently. Every drama streaming sites take their ripped subs. So it's not as if ppl are subbing it.

Yes, I haven't looked for Pied Piper yet (so many dramas, so little time) but have found darksmurfsubs to be an excellent source for dramas I can't find elsewhere. I watched the entirety of Yoo Na's Street on DSS, and it was an amazing drama and the subbing was quite good, until the last episode anyway.

The show is absolutely terrific so far!

I might SPOIL so for those who haven't watched it yet don't read the rest of this post.

The Pied Piper must be using hypnosis through his voice, I know some of the puppets are weak but to convince an everyday ajusshi to actually rob a bank... or then may threats using their past, but for them to go this far, there has to be a form of psychological manipulation. plus the people he uses often look confused at some point, as if the "program" stops working for a short period of time. Or is it just me?

@raindrops: Jeong Soo Gyeong was first mentioned in episode 7. He was one of the family members who lost a family member in that incident 13 years ago. He used to be a good boxer.

OMG ep 14- that reveal was totally unexpected. Sad we have only two more episodes left. I thought it was less interesting after who PP is, but no there was more to the story. Love the show.
