Black: Episode 1

OCN is back with a new mystery-thriller about one woman’s supernatural ability to not only see death, but interact with Death himself as they work together to save lives. Or at least, that’s what I assume will happen, because even though the premiere episode’s runtime came close to an hour and a half, most of it was setup for the characters and the spooky mysteries that are to come.

 
EPISODE 1 RECAP

A man slowly walks to the edge of a cliff before falling off of it, landing in the water below. He swims to a car that’s at the bottom of the ocean, covered in dirt and algae.

He desperately breaks the window to reveal a rotted corpse in the passenger seat. “Is it really me?” the man wonders.

 

It’s raining at a crime scene as rookie detective HAN MOO-GANG (Song Seung-heon) and his partner make their way over to the body that’s been dug up. As the CSI crew tell partner Na Kwang-kyun about their findings, Moo-gang retches at the sight and smell of the rotting skeleton, which causes him to lose his lunch all over the crime scene.

Apparently this is not the first time Moo-gang has contaminated a crime scene with his sensitive stomach, and in frustration, Kwang-kyun kicks him out of the way so that he can investigate (while picking off undigested bits off ramyun from the skeleton, ew).

The body was hit in the head with a blunt instrument, which indicates murder, and based on the shape of the skull, it’s assumed that the victim was a man. Kwang-kyun finds a mysterious gel-filled sack wedged between the skeleton’s ribs, though.

 

Moo-gang stops at a fast food place to get a bite to eat in order to settle his stomach, and the cashier, KANG HA-RAM (Go Ara), bluntly takes his order without looking at him. Not that anyone would know where she was looking — despite it being nighttime and her being indoors, she’s wearing sunglasses.

Her manager, annoyed at how rude she appears with the sunglasses, takes them off her — but she’s wearing another pair underneath. Ha! The manager removes those too, and she immediately shields her eyes as she demands that Moo-gang finish his order. Moo-gang is fascinated by the fact she won’t look at him, and she mutters that she’ll pull out his own eyes if he won’t stop staring.

 

Ha-ram sees a dark cloud behind another customer, and she suddenly grabs that customer’s arm and begs him to wait a few minutes. He’s an old boyfriend, actually, and he coldly tells her that the reason he dumped her was because she brings misfortune — apparently she had warned him about his mother’s death, which came to pass. The ex-boyfriend shakes her off and hurries out to his car… only to get fatally hit by a passing Truck of Doom.

Ha-ram returns home to her rooftop apartment and pops in a DVD of her favorite pretty boy actor. She pretends to hold a conversation with him, telling him about her recently departed ex-boyfriend.

 

Ha-ram blames herself for not trying harder to prevent him from leaving. She starts to cry, wondering if she really does bring misfortune and whether people die because of her. She calls out for her father, just like she did when she was a young girl, when she was scared that she could see the dark shadows.

Back then, her father gave her a pair of sunglasses, telling a young Ha-ram that they would help prevent her from seeing “the scary things.” Adult Ha-ram, looking over her collection of sunglasses, sadly says that she can’t endure it any longer.

 

Meanwhile, the detectives have dinner, and they’re all a little bit tipsy. They tell Moo-gang that he should eat, but when Kwang-kyun pretends an egg is a cow’s eye in their beef stew, Moo-gang gags and runs for the bathroom, his weak stomach once again about to betray him.

Unfortunately for Moo-gang, he has to pass other diners with their raw meat (and other stomach-churning parts of an animal), and ends up vomiting all over a gang leader. The gang leader and his men start beating Moo-gang up, stopping only when they realize that he’s a detective. The brawl turns into a drunken fight between the detectives and the gangsters as Kwang-kyun comes to Moo-gang’s rescue.

Moo-gang’s girlfriend, YOON SO-WAN (Lee El), makes him a birthday dinner and reminds him to call his mother more often. His mother is apparently worried about him, since he’s not exactly cut out to be a hard-boiled detective. Moo-gang shrugs it off as he goes outside, headed to a storage room — one that requires a retina scan to let him in. As he enters, he asks someone on the phone if they’ve “looked into it” yet.

Ha-ram prepares to go on vacation, making sure to pack a photo of her younger self with an older boy. It’s clearly a prized possession.

 

On the plane, Ha-ram dozes as the flight prepares for takeoff. Her sunglasses fall, and a little girl sitting next to her puts them on. When Ha-ram asks for the glasses back, she recoils when she sees a dark shadowy figure appear next to the little girl.

Ha-ram looks around the plane to see it filling with zombie-like shadowy people. Immediately, Ha-ram runs to the door of the plane, screaming that the plane can’t take off because everyone will die. Despite already being on the runway, the pilots stop the plane so that officials can escort the still-screaming Ha-ram off the flight before it takes off as originally scheduled.

At the police station, Ha-ram’s favorite pretty boy actor and his entourage are currently being detained for being drunk and disorderly.

One of the actor’s entourage members is chaebol OH MAN-SOO (Kim Dong-joon), who grimaces when he sees the news that the plane Ha-ram was supposed to be on crashed, killing everyone on board — not because he feels sympathy for the victims, but because it’s his family’s insurance company that will have to deal with any payout from the accident.

Back with the detectives, we discover that the gel-like sacs found in the body are silicon breast implants (something that adorably clueless Moo-gang has to hold to his chest before realizing what they are), which means the victim was actually a woman.

Since the police haven’t found a match with any missing person reports, Kwang-kyun orders Moo-gang to look up the serial numbers on the implants and find out from the manufacturer what hospital used them. From there, they can figure out the patient was — and thus, the identity of their victim.

Ha-ram is also at the station, being held under suspicion of terrorism since she knew that the plane would have an accident. Ha-ram insists she isn’t a terrorist, claiming instead that she can see the shadow of death. Except she also claims that she never saw so many shadows at one time as she did on the plane.

 

A woman rushes into the station, ready to fight the men that punched her husband, until she realizes that Man-soo is actually her boss (because she works for his insurance company). That doesn’t stop a brawl from happening, and when the woman gets pushed into Ha-ram, Ha-ram can see the woman freezing to death in a dark place.

Later at home, Man-soo is overjoyed when his older brother tells him that he wants Man-soo to officially be in charge of the insurance division of Royal Group. In gratitude, Man-soo gives thanks to the shrine he’s made of various icons and talismans, but he’s distracted by the sound of his nephew using his computer to watch pornography.

Man-soo tells his nephew to stop watching — or at least not to watch it in front of Man-soo’s (very cute) bulldog. But the nephew just points out that Man-soo shouldn’t be too happy about becoming the CEO of Royal Insurance since he’s just being used as a fall guy. Man-soo’s family will just blame him for the huge loss the company will endure after the plane accident today.

Meanwhile, Moo-gang sees Ha-ram’s broken sunglasses and tapes them back together. He gives them back to her, then asks why she always covers her beautiful eyes. That reminds Ha-ram of a boy from her school days who said the exact same thing.

He awkwardly admits he overheard her talk about the death shadows, and she tells him that because the shadows are black, the sunglasses block them from her vision. If she touches a shadow, she’ll see how someone dies — that’s how she knew her ex-boyfriend would be hit by a truck, and why she was so desperate to try and get him to wait a few minutes until the truck passed.

But now, Ha-ram can’t stop thinking about the little girl who was on the plane next to her that died because she couldn’t stop the plane. Ha-ram says she’s cursed — she’s nothing but a monster.

In the morning, it’s confirmed that the reason the plane crashed was due to technical failure and not a terrorist act, so Ha-ram is released. She leaves the police station just as Moo-gang is arriving for work, and he’s happy that everything was cleared up for her. Ha-ram just gets into his car and tells him to drive her home, ignoring his feeble protest that he just got there.

As he drives, they pass a man standing on the edge of the bridge, surrounded by police and spectators. According to Moo-gang, threatening to jump is a regular stunt for him, but he never actually goes through with it. Ha-ram sees the shadow behind him and tells Moo-gang that the man will jump this time, but Moo-gang just laughs it off, and Ha-ram grumpily tells him that she thought he trusted her.

 

At any rate, she says that doesn’t care — it’s not her problem, and she tells Moo-gang to keep driving until he drops her off at home. On his way back to the station, Moo-gang passes the bridge again, and this time, the man actually falls off.

Stunned, Moo-gang watches the process until the very end as the paramedics retrieve the body from the water, the man’s mother wailing in grief as her son’s body is taken away. Ha-ram was right about her vision, and as he thinks back to all her other predictions that came true, Moo-gang realizes that she can actually see death.

 

Later that night, a very drunk Moo-gang visits Ha-ram at her home, blaming himself for not listening to her earlier so that he could have saved the man. Moo-gang wonders how she’s endured feeling responsible like that all her life, when he’s a wreck after only one death.

He tells her that she’s not a cursed monster, but actually has a gift — by being able to see death, she can save people’s lives. He proposes that they work together, claiming that between her visions and his ability as a detective, they’ll be able to save lives. Ha-ram responds by slamming the door in his face.

Moo-gang continues to kick up a drunken ruckus, loudly pleading that she give it a chance, just once. Ha-ram can’t stop thinking about his offer, though. But she wonders how she can save other people when she couldn’t even save her own father.

Moo-gang’s tracked down the hospital that used the breast implants, and he asks the doctor for their records about the patient from twenty years ago. It turns out the breast implants were a part of a sex change operation, which explains why there were no hits on the missing persons list.

The doctor shows Moo-gang a photo of the patient, and his eyes grow wide in shock. Moo-gang lies to Kwang-kyun that they had the wrong serial number and that the visit to the hospital was a dud, since he seems to recognize the woman in the photograph.

Moo-gang drives to an abandoned factory in his hometown. As he wanders the dusty, empty space, he remembers being a young boy twenty years ago. Back then, he secretly watched the woman from the photograph beat up a female high school student, asking where “the tapes” were. Adult Moo-gang finds the name tag that had fallen off the student’s uniform all those years ago, and after dusting it off, he reads the name “Kim Seon-young.”

When Moo-gang goes through the school records, he discovers that that student’s page has been ripped out. There isn’t a senior photo of her in the yearbook either, and he flips through the group photos until he finds a photo of Kim Seon-young. As he drives back to Seoul, he passes Ha-ram headed the other way on the bus.

Ha-ram walks along a deserted road by the sea, apologizing to her father that it’s been so long since she’s returned. But she has a lot on her mind, like Moo-gang telling her that her ability is a gift and that he would help her save people. She starts to cry as she wonders what would have happened if someone had believed her back then — would she have been able to save her father?

Moo-gang’s girlfriend Soo-wan is a surgeon at Royal Hospital, and she happily hurries to the hospital rooftop to meet with Moo-gang for what she assumes is a romantic meeting. But Moo-gang ignores her cheerful chatter until she tells him that she has to go back inside to take care of a patient.

 

She stops in her tracks when Moo-gang calls her Kim Seon-young. Moo-gang wonders if she’s surprised that he’s found out her real name after she’s worked so hard to hide it the past twenty years, and she gasps in shock when Moo-gang shows her the photo from the yearbook.

Moo-gang angrily demands to know if Soo-wan intentionally approached him because of what happened twenty years ago. He says that it all has to do with whatever was on that tape. Soo-wan tearfully starts to tell him, “The truth is…”

One month later. Ha-ram looks out at the sunny blue sky and decides that today is a good day to save lives. Taking off her sunglasses, she tells herself that it’s worth it to try at least once. She even cuts her bangs so that there’s no excuse to hide her eyes behind anything.

Cautiously, Ha-ram walks through the market. She sees a mother with a death shadow, but when Ha-ram touches it, she sees that the woman dies because of an illness, which is not something Ha-ram can prevent.

At the police station, the detectives are all watching the news about an assemblyman’s son who is in the military and has been accused of sexual assault. Moo-gang keeps ignoring calls from Soo-wan, who sends him a message that they haven’t talked in a month since that night. Moo-gang just deletes her message.

 

Moo-gang gets a call from Ha-ram, who tells him that she’s decided to find out if her visions are a curse or a blessing. She starts to tell him about a man she’s found with a death shadow, but Moo-gang cuts her off, saying that he told her all that stuff about saving lives when he was drunk. He’s not in a good position to help her right now, and Ha-ram once again threatens terrifyingly dire things to his eyeballs.

Ha-ram decides to take matters into her own hands and attempts to convince the guy with a death shadow that she’s a fortune teller, and that he shouldn’t go near a shopping mall today. She even tries to give him money to not go anywhere, and the guy assumes that she’s some sort of gold digger.

Ha-ram grumbles that she did her best and is about to leave, but she can’t forget the vision of how the man will die. She turns back around and starts to instigate a fight, telling him to hit her. He refuses, so she beats her head against the table until she starts to bleed, then screams that he’s trying to run away after hitting her.

Moo-gang walks into the restaurant as the man is fleeing the scene. Moo-gang tries to trip the man, but Moo-gang ends up tripping over his own feet and tumbles to the ground. Still, Ha-ram manages to tackle the guy, and a confused Moo-gang arrests him for assault.

 

As the guy is taken away to the police station, Moo-gang (with Ha-ram’s footprint still on his back, ha), tends to the bloody wound on her head. He grumbles that it was hard to find her, and that he only did it because of her scary threats.

He’s also no dummy, because he knows she hurt herself on purpose so that the man would be locked up and safe from being killed. Ha-ram retorts that Moo-gang’s the clumsy on who tripped on his own feet, so he should just quit being a detective. Sighing, Moo-gang says he’s actually planning to quit, which makes Ha-ram quickly retract her previous statement and awkwardly insist that everyone can be clumsy at times.

Ha-ram’s still worried about what she saw from the man’s shadow, though. It was actually a hostage situation, and even though she saved that man, there’s no guarantee that someone else won’t take his place. Based on Ha-ram’s description of the attacker in her vision, it’s likely a soldier who’s gone AWOL. She and Moo-gang decide that the best way to prevent the hostage situation taking place at all is to find the soldier first.

They head to the shopping mall Ha-ram saw in her vision, and Ha-ram recognizes a woman who was one of the scared onlookers in her vision. They discover that her boyfriend ran away from the military just that morning, and they believe they’ve found the attacker.

The woman agrees to convince her boyfriend to come to a restaurant so that Ha-ram can confirm that it’s really him. Moo-gang is shocked that Ha-ram can nonchalantly chow down while they’re waiting to see if this guy is their potential killer. But when the boyfriend walks in the door, wearing a hoodie, ball cap, and a watch like the man in her vision, she nods at Moo-gang to arrest him.

 

Ha-ram and Moo-gang are happy to have successfully saved a life. As they go their separate ways, Ha-ram says that he was actually pretty helpful. Moo-gang tells her they did something amazing today, and repeats that her visions are a blessing, not a curse. Aw, then he saves Ha-ram as “Sunglasses” in his phone (while ignoring yet another “I’m sorry” message from Soo-wan).

Ha-ram goes to a sauna to celebrate, but when she returns to the locker room, she sees her locker door swing shut. It’s odd since no on is around, and it’s still locked when she tries to open it. Nothing seems to be missing, but she has seventeen missed calls from Moo-gang (or “Loser,” as he’s saved in her phone).

She tries calling Moo-gang, worried that the men she’s locked up have been released, but he doesn’t answer. When she gets to the police station, Moo-gang isn’t there. As she tries calling him again, she sees his police academy graduation photo, where he’s wearing a red thread bracelet — the exact same bracelet a young Ha-ram made for her childhood oppa right before he moved away.

Ha-ram is stunned to realize that Moo-gang is the same person from her childhood who used to tell her that her visions were a blessing, and who declared he would become a detective just like her father.

Just then, the military police arrive to take the runaway soldier, and now that Ha-ram can fully see his uniform, she notices that he doesn’t have the right rank — plus, his watch is on the wrong wrist. Ha-ram realizes that he’s not the original attacker from her vision.

 

The police station gets word of a hostage situation at the shopping mall — but this time, Moo-gang is the hostage. He ended up at the mall because he went to pick up the original hostage’s mother, who was lost with dementia. Ha-ram watches the news footage of the hostage situation, shocked by this twist of fate, and then covers her eyes in horror when Moo-gang is shot in the head.

 

Moo-gang is taken to Royal Hospital, where Soo-wan is the attending surgeon in the ER and is shocked to discover her old boyfriend is her new patient. Soo-wan desperately tries to revive him, but Moo-gang dies on the table.

Ha-ram, distraught that her actions have now caused an old friend to be killed, dazedly insists that she’s cursed. She attempts to hang herself with her shoelaces and slowly slips into unconsciousness as her phone repeatedly buzzes.

Meanwhile, a masked man in a doctor’s coat enters the morgue, looking for Moo-gang’s body. The man pulls out a scalpel to remove Moo-gang’s eye, but instead, Moo-gang’s eyes shoot open.

The masked man runs away in fear as Moo-gang sits up, his eyes a demonic shade of red. Moo-gang sneers that humans are so dramatic.

 
COMMENTS

There was so much packed into this premiere that I don’t know where to begin. Just as Moo-gang vomited his lunch, the show vomited up so many details that I can’t fully figure out yet what’s going on, or what to trust. There’s definitely something important about what happened twenty years ago (the tapes, the dead body, the fact that Moo-gang was looking into a fire that happened then, the complete destruction of Soo-wan’s previous identity), and I’m assuming that retina scan room is somehow relevant to all of that. But it’s still weird to think of the bumbling-yet-earnest Moo-gang, who struggles to even use handcuffs, being something like a secret agent. Besides, is it really necessary? There’s already enough packed into this show without adding an extra layer of mystery. I don’t need another gimmick to make me interested in a show about a woman who can see death.

I just wish that this episode was perhaps edited a little more clearly so I’d know what details were worthy to store away later as clues to the full puzzle. Instead of the red string of fate, I’m going to need one of those crazy walls of red string as I try to track all the connections and timelines. As much as I’m looking forward to some Grim Reaper shenanigans, I’m also sad for the loss of Moo-gang. Although I do think it’s strange that if he’s really the boy from her childhood, why didn’t he recognize Ha-ram or at least wonder at the fact that there are two people in the world who can see the Shadows? There’s something shady here, and I guess I’m going to just have to trust that everything will be gradually revealed and somehow make sense.

Even though the premiere left me with a lot of questions, I think it did give us a decent foundation for Ha-ram’s character. We may not know why Ha-ram can see the Shadows, or what happened twenty years ago that’s so important, or why a Grim Reaper needs to inhabit a body, particularly Moo-gang’s body. But I do feel like I have a sense of who Ha-ram is: A young woman who yearns for a normal life but knows she can never have it. (I mean, I was sympathetic to Ha-ram the moment I realized she’s just as much of a fangirl as any one of us, and I may or may not be stealing her ingenious idea of using drama scenes to pretend to have conversations with my oppas. Not, uh, that it makes me sound crazy or anything… right?)

Which is why I can’t blame Ha-ram for wanting to kill herself. All her life, she’s apparently struggled with constantly seeing death and figuring out how to come to terms with it — what her responsibility is, or even if she has any responsibility at all. As much as she may shield herself with her sunglasses and ignore what’s going on, at least she still has the instinctive urge to try — which is why it’s extra heartbreaking when her efforts fail and she watches people die. Even more heartbreaking to think that, for once, she’s able to save a stranger’s life, but because of her meddling, someone she knew and cared about ended up being killed instead.

It’s no wonder that Ha-ram thinks she’s cursed, considering that she’s apparently never been able to prevent someone from fatally fulfilling her visions of death. But I have faith that there’s still enough optimism and hope lingering within, and that she won’t give up when she comes face to face with the Grim Reaper — even when that face looks like Moo-gang.

I watched first 2 episodes and I can safely say that it's not for everyone, why?

1. It's too dark (that's why it's black, I suppose). Many scenes of deaths and blood..
2. Plotline is quite messy as it seems to try and squeeze almost all of the backstory on opening episodes.
3. Is this a romance drama? horror? satire? comedy? so far it's all of those..

Personally I will give it another episode before dropping or not.

sidenote: Go Ara has pretty eyes..

Heroine looks beautiful. Music is scary and this show is Dark. Far more dark than Rescue Me. Music is the Main character here.
2nd - BIG -1 for 1:25 minute episode. Add 10 more minutes and you get a movie.
I agree with @Haseul Not much yet too much is going on 1st week. Hero doesn't ignite any kind of confidence in the story. Detective agency started in 1st episode itself.

Warning - If anyone was unable to digest Rescue Me then this show certainly isn't for you.

This drama is quite dark, but not too dark to me. Rescue Me made my heart beating fast and nervous if anything would happen, but this drama just made me confused, that's all. So, this drama is quite meh to me. True, that this drama has many scenes of deaths and blood, but I'm not bothered by it mainly because it doesn't seem real. But I'll give it a try for ep 2.

@hannaehh,

BLACK has a surreal quality, so the gore doesn't bother me the way it did in VOICE, which was too creepy and violent for words. Thank goodness Kim Jae-wook is hobnobbing with directors and chefs in TEMPERATURE OF LOVE. He was terrifying with that kettlebell. And Kim Roe-ha was not far behind him.

* shivers *

Just watching ep. 2 raw was hilarious. Sheesh. Reanimated detective Mu-gang looked like a bona fide flasher in his trench coat.

Bring on the black humor! ;-)

You captured it perfectly, there's too much happening all at once, I also got confused with a lot so I browsed a lot of comment sites to see other people's take on the episode as well.

But if there's anything good that I saw it was that this episode alone made me sympathize with Ha-ram as well. I mean its bad enough to know that someone is dying but to actually see their creepy corpse selves right before your eyes? It's like living in a horror film 24/7, No thank you.

The Truck of Doom strikes again! Cameo appearance here, and a minor character at that. Truck of Doom was last seen in 'Falsify' where its victim was the brother of the protagonist, whose death set the drama in motion. Quite a slide down the scale lately, Truck of Doom.

Also, this opening episode was all over the place - I could barely follow some of the threads/hints dropped. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it well enough.

Haha yup - you'd think minor characters and family members of the leads were never taught how to cross a road properly. "First you look to the left, then to the right, then to the left again..." (or is SK the other way round). It's a miracle they even make it to adulthood!

Thank you for your recap, @odilettante. Your recap clarified some fuzzy points for me; for eg., I hadn't realized that a month had past after Moo-gang's rooftop confrontation with Soo-wan.

I just wish that this episode was perhaps edited a little more clearly so I’d know what details were worthy to store away later as clues to the full puzzle. Instead of the red string of fate, I’m going to need one of those crazy walls of red string as I try to track all the connections and timelines.

Ha! My thoughts exactly. I've seen the first two episodes and had to read the soompi forum to get a handle on what could be going on. The plot threads are a bit convoluted. Maybe it's too clever for me.

I empathize with Ha-ram's suffering but her expression is just ... off. She's got that constant "something smells" look.

That said, I'm looking foward to Song Seung-heon's transformation into the sexy new Moo-gang. Good bye yellow sweatshirt, hello black Armani.

I actually enjoy this drama even with all the confusion, it's really confusing and I think it because we [the audience] is really used as the 3rd point of view, we didn't hear their heart talking [monologue], we see them running away and get the conclusion without seeing how.

It feels that we are watching from this one window and they come and go doing something in our vision and leave doing something we don't know.
The drama didn't work like that usually cause it seems like we have to know it all about the character but this drama makes us know everything about what happens or the event.
We know that they find a body, that has died for long, we know that they work as a detective, the accident, one guy is bad at being detective, the girl can see death and we have all the proof, the one girl is a liar and we know a lot of things except the character itself which is odd but since I am intrigued by what had happened and how it all connected, I find it enjoyable.

Even if it's confusing, the camera work is excellent so I hope this is a drama when ep 1 is the core mystery and that's what we are going to unravel for the ep, who is moo gang, haram and what had happened in the beginning of this drama.

I liked it. It is true that there were too many mysteries thrown at us so not really sure what's happening. But I find the concept refreshing and original, well, maybe not the concept but the overall tone. And Song Seung Hun and Go Ara are doing well. I was entertained so I will watch a couple more of episodes to see if they explain what's going on and the plot takes a clear direction...

@Yuki,

I, too, liked the initial pair of episodes. Yes, there's a surfeit of data. But over time it will be sorted out. Besides, I survived VOICE, CIRCLE, DUEL, and LOOKOUT, each of which were challenging to suss out. ;-)

I've liked the tone, also, although I'm concerned that the endearingly bumbling detective's replacement by a steely-eyed reaper will result in loss of humorous relief. I agree re: the leads doing well thus far.

The verdict: I'll stick around to see what develops. ;-)

Ha-ram blames herself for not trying harder to prevent him from leaving. She starts to cry, wondering if she really does bring misfortune and whether people die because of her.

Actually, if she had let him go a few seconds earlier he might have survived. Girl needs to work on her timing.

Also, NEVER do anything to upset or distract someone who is about to cross a street.

If she'd just said: be careful crossing the road, he'd still be alive. No need for the dramatics.

Seems like the writers of Black and While You Were Sleeping decided to have a contest to see who could do the best show about forseeing death with dead fathers and a deserter. Ok, dead fathers are a dime a dozen in kdrama-land, but it's still too much to be coincidence.

I was not planning on checking out this show, but because “Go Back Couple/Spouses” another drama I wasn’t sure about pleasantly surprised me and is turning out to be solidly good so far, I decided to give this show a chance as well. However the first two eps of this drama were all over the place. So far, I like the heroine’s character – she breaks my heart. However the male lead’s character is confusing, and I don’t understand what is going on or why the grim reaper chose his body to take.

Also the humor in this drama is not only morbid but also grotesque, there were several times when I had to close my eyes or were I cringed because I felt too grossed out. I know that OCN produces grittier/darker shows, but why go out of your way to be gross or grotesque? The premise of this drama could’ve been much better executed, with less grotesqueness. So while I am intrigued, and this show does remind me a bit of “Meet Joe Black”, I don’t think I will watch more.

I totally get you on the humor, which is unexpectedly lowbrow and heavyhanded in this series. I do think SSH should do a full-on comedy for his next drama.

Song Seung-heon did a very good job in the tragic Joseon timeline in SAIMDANG, LIGHT'S DIARY. His role in the present timeline was smaller, but also well done. (IMHO, Yang Se-jong upstaged him as his younger Joseon self. What a surprise after seeing YSJ play the inexpressive, buttoned-down surgeon Do In-bum in ROMANTIC DOCTOR, TEACHER KIM. And then he totally kicked out the jams in DUEL by playing two clones, their donor, and one clone impersonating the other -- and subtly but visibly nuanced each of them.)

I agree. After BLACK, a lighter, fluffier drama would be a good choice for SSH.

Thanks for your recap and comments, @odilettante!

BLACK had me on the edge of my seat. Viewers were indeed on the receiving end of the mother of all information dumps during this initial episode. I'll need more than a measly evidence wall to keep track of all the data. I'll need a Great Wall of China covered with photos, strings, and Post-It Notes(TM). ;-)

BLACK blasted out of the starting gate in a big way. I watched it raw, and could figure out a fair bit. But I really needed the subtitles, and odilettante's recap, to get a good handle on the proceedings. I had no idea that Mu-gang / The Reaper came face-to-face with his own corpse when he dove down to the submerged car. I can only assume that it's the Reaper's consciousness speaking about his own earlier incarnation and not Mu-gang's in the voice over.

Queasy detective Mu-gang comes across as a kind and decent human being who really belongs in another line of work. That scene of him upchucking all over the remains in situ and contaminating the evidence would have made Bones go ballistic. His colleagues were sadistic enough to prank him at dinner, but the pièce de résistance triggered by raw offal went down in the main dining room, leading to epic fisticuffs.

As soon as I heard the medical examiner state that the skull bone indicated a male, I figured that the skeleton with the breast implants was that of a person who had had a sex-change operation. Curiouser and curiouser, especially as it involved Mu-gang's surgeon girlfriend when she was still in high school.

Ha-ram strikes me as a 21 st Century Cassandra. She has the fantastic ability to see the future, but is cursed because no one believes her. Thus she is helpless to avert impending deaths. No wonder Ha-ram is literally at the end of her rope after being privy to such terrible knowledge her entire life. It's actually more amazing that she's lasted this long and not gone crazy or attempted to kill herself in despair before now.

Seeing Mu-gang's police academy graduation portrait on his desk with the red macrame bracelet on his wrist just killed me. Oh, crap. More red threads of fatedness. Until then, I had no inkling that our hero would be dead by the end of the first episode.

It seems that Mu-gang knew Ha-ram quite well when they were young. Was her dad a cop, too, one who perhaps inspired Mu-gang to follow in his footsteps? I'm wondering if Ha-ram's family broke up after her father died. Is the older boy in the picture she took with her on her ill-fated attempted flight to Helsinki her Oppa who was adopted overseas? If not, what's the deal with the photo?

Who the heck is the guy in the mask who came looking for Mu-gang's corpse in the morgue? And what is the story with the basement room Mu-gang accessed via retinal scan? It would be so much easier and more sociable if he hung out at Der Waffle Haus, where server Kiffany keeps the refills coming in DEAD LIKE ME. ;-)

It feels like Moo Gang's mother is the owner of the hospital and i think her husband wants Moo Gang dead so that he can have the hospital it's predictable. Moo Gang is the one who will inherit it but Moo Gang became a detective because of things that happened 20 years ago.

@aardvark I think I speak for everyone when I say: What the hell is going on????????

YES you do!

I was waiting a lot for this drama because the sinopsis got my attention (and maybe a little biased by another cute and lovable Grim Reaper) but I was drawn by the darkness of the teasers and stuff, by ep 1 alone I think I'll drop. I'll check ep 2 just to make sure. Recaps will be read and I'll decide later if I come back. There are another dramas to try and I hope another thriller-ish / mistery drama comes up fast.

I didn't felt any connection with nor between leads. I mean they killed the lead and didn't even bother to make me like him a lot so his death was important to me (as in Save Me and the twin) I'm not crazy about SSH and I don't know Go Ara's previous work. Sooo nothing pulls me in so far...

I don't think so the director and the writer are very good. Voice is one of OCN's top rating drama and I can't wait for voice Season 2. If you didn't watch Voice then you don't know how good the director is in terms of crime drama. But all in all I have faith in both of them that the whole drama will be interesting. Song Seung Heon is doing a great job in this drama.

Regarding confusion over the writhing mass of characters, events, and relationships that were dumped in the opening episode...

From what little I've read of Chinese classical literary/dramaturgic conventions (which have in turn influenced their Korean counterparts), it is par for the course to introduce all the characters and their back stories up front. The reader/audience is expected to remember everything from the initial exposition. This is quite different from how exposition is handled in English literature and drama.

One of my reasons for watching Kdrama is its otherness, which includes unfamiliar methods of plotting (Hello, kishotenketsu!), exposition (e.g., via nunchi, literally “eye measurement” or closely observing and intuiting characters' emotions) and characterization. Time is often non-linear (as in the use of flashbacks), which comes from Buddhism and Mugyo (indigenous Korean shamanism). They likewise influence spiritual and supernatural aspects (e.g., death, reincarnation, fate, karmic relationships, spirits, ghosts, mudangs, talismans, curses) of shows such as OH HAE-YOUNG AGAIN, MIRROR OF THE WITCH, REBEL: THIEF WHO STOLE THE PEOPLE, and ARANG AND THE MAGISTRATE. (The latter is my touchstone for reapers, thanks to its incredibly detailed and consistent world-building.) Confucianism and Taoism contribute influences as well.

FYI: I've posted articles on my fan wall regarding kishōtenketsu (起承転結) and other plotting methods, Mugyo, Chinese classical literature, and Korean historical sources (e.g., the online Veritable Records of the Joseon Dynasty). Happy digging. ;-)

Just want to say that though I am even more confused, this drama got significantly better in the next episode, mostly because I found Moo Gang wimpy somehow but the Reaper, or Moo Gang's alter ego woke the entire show up. Now I cant wait till next week! So watch the next episode before giving up on the drama, is my advice.

1.Haram's parents are the newly wed couple in the car accident at the beginning of episode 2. That other grim reaper saw her mother's eyes of love looking at her dying husband, which is a taboo for a grim reaper, and falls for her mother. He then incarnates her husband's body and has a daughter Haram with her, which is why she can see death. He is of course punished for breaking this taboo (something that I am sure the male lead himself will go through later when he falls for Haram) by being killed later. Have you wondered why he reacts calmly when Haram tells him he's going to die?

2. Han Wugang has partially lost his childhood memory after witnessing a traumatic event (the main crime in this drama) 20 years ago. But he is trying to recover it and on the scent of the crime. That is why he, as a business graduate back from the US is actually working as an incompetent cop in the Heavy Crime unit. He finds out that the dead male corpse had a sex transplant operation and was actually the middle-aged woman beating his girlfriend 20 years ago while he watched from a window in a warehouse.

3.He makes a secret of his investigation and his basement room at home, which he enter with an eye scan. Somebody is watching all his activities from a telescope from a neighbour's house, and knows about the eye scan. That is why the doctor in the hospital is trying to take out his eyes when he is lying dead in the morgue. There is a lot of references to taking out your eyes throughout the first 2 episodes, a nod to this scene.

3. The hospital's name is Golden Life Hospital, same as the insurance company Golden Life Insurance which the second male lead is now in charge of. His older brother must be the main evil behind all this, as well as the fire and building collapse 20 years ago, to which Wugang must be a witness. That is why the doctor is on order to kill Wugang, and also why all the people hitherto killed (the sex transplant man, the female corpse by whose side the new Wugang eats with ease) are linked to that fire 20 years ago.

4 Wugang is actually shot by a police sniper, incarnated by one of three grim reapers with an agenda of their own. They are trying to avenge someone, but will in turn be punished for interfering with destiny. What that will be we will have to wait and find out.

5. I am still perplexed over who the two Wu-gangs are at the end of episode 2. If he is incarnated by the grim reaper, then who is the blood-splattered Wugang who stumbles back home and faces his lookalike in shock?

6. The drama is now number one in rating and tops the chart as the most talked about drama of the weekend. Koreans do seem to love to speculate over a mystery drama. SSH is really refreshing as a hilarious grim reaper who is only good at death (that's why he excels in murder investigations) and completely ignorant of everything to do with living (including food, clothes, manners, and ultimately feelings/love). He has a good comic timing,...

I realized that I had mistaken Reaper #416 for Han Mu-gang in the opening scenes. Now it makes a lot more sense. Between the darkness and underwater shots, I was really fooled.

Note to whoever is thinking of watching this (and to myself for further episodes):

Do not have dinner or any other meal during the show, it will put you off anything you`re eating for quite some time.

First episode was frenetic and seemed to herald an action packed and possibly interesting series. Leads are accomplished actors and did their part.

But the second episode (no spoilers) did not slow down much and by the end, it was more than a little confusing. There may be some hope to pull this together but that hope is rather faint.

I guess my thought, if you haven’t started, is to wait for our dedicated team to recap episodes 3 and maybe 4. The story either pulls together or falls apart completely by then. The characters start behaving somewhat illogically in ep 2, so it is pretty hard to make sense of plot or motivation.

It is really confusing what the writer has conceived. It appears to be a mish mash of supernatural thriller, melodrama, (maybe) romance, secret organization and police procedural. There are probably good reasons why no one ever tried this route before. Best take a wait and maybe see attitude.

That's BLACK in a nutshell. Maybe with insurance fraud, which has suddenly become popular. Ah, but Mu-gang studied accounting, so now we have the prospect of a reanimated forensic accountant dispensing divine retribution a la CHIEF KIM.

Now all they need is shadows that behave like the gravelings in DEAD LIKE ME for comic relief. Or maybe some Arang-esque ghosts. ;-)

Before I started watching this drama I was mainly concerned about acting skills. After watching two episodes I can say that's not really a problem.

I was tickled to recognize Shin Rin-ah as young Ha-ram. She played Yoo-na in LEGEND OF THE BLUE SEA, and apparently had a mermaid parent because she could hear Sim Chung's thoughts. So Reaper Vision is heritable, just like Mermaid Hearing was?!

Kim Jung-young briefly appears at the precinct as Ha-ram's mom. She's turning out to have a lot of kids: Dong-Joo in ROMATIC DOCTOR, TEACHER KIM, Soo-ji in LOOKOUT, and Chae-kyung in SEVEN DAY QUEEN -- and that's only in the past year. She projects a great motherly vibe. ;-)
