    This is awesome news. Do you know if they have a list? I think @estee will want to know about this.

      I normally go to viki.com/coming soon to see new shows.

      I don’t think they have a separate list of what’s coming or made a news article via Soompi of dramas they are bringing in.

      They have previously announced that they are going to carry Sky Castle.

      That’s great news! But a lot of dramas will probably be location restricted anyways… *sigh*

      Thanks for tagging me!

        Let’s hope not! If there are, it’s not all that bad. There are ways around that. 😉

        1

          I’ve been using mainly those ways lately… 🙈 For some reason, Viki sometimes has parts of the episode in worse quality and the uncertainty is even worse than watching the whole episode in lower, but stable quality… 😅

            I don’t think I’ve noticed the quality drop with Viki. Should look out for that.

            Just to make sure we’re on the same page, my work around is to us a VPN on Viki. My secondary would be unlicensed.

            @hades We weren’t. 😅 I don’t use VPN, so I just go with the unlicensed.

The deer hunting scene on The Crowned Clown. 👏👏👏👏 That was thrilling. That was fun to watch. … I don\’t know why I am in awe of the running when it seems like it occurs regularly in a sageuk.

    I know, right! They seemed to be gliding through the forest. It reminded me of Dong Mae running through the streets in Mr. Sunshine like some anime character.

      Those long legged trees helped a lot. They added to the suspense. … If the PD wanted to, I’m sure she can make it romantic if clown and King were just walkin through them.

    If you ran screaming at the deer in my area, they’d scatter. I don’t understand how they can hunt like that.

      Good thing, they never caught one. It would have been unrealistic if they did. Lol.

      I did say to my TV. “You guys are too loud. You won’t catch any.”

Whooooo, let me breathe for a second, The Crowned Clown. That was one powerful episode, and I\’m not even finished yet. Yoo Jin Goo, you were born for this.

Did he come back to the game? Did they turn the friggin server back on? If so, which ep and what time? Tell me. Telll me.

I don\’t like all this other dramatic scenes. Give me swords and deaths.

    Skip ep 9, jump to ep 10 ending. Thats all for this week.

      Wow. That far? Would have thought middle of ep 10. … You mean to tell me the writer decided to give the other actors screentime worthy of their paychecks?

        Oopps my bad. Skip ep 11 jump to ep 12. Ep 10 has a major sad death.

        Only NPC deaths in early ep 11, no deaths in ep 12. But theres some progress in the last 10 minutes of ep 12.

        Zombie cha has more lines in ep 12 than ep1 to ep11 combined haha

    I know, right?
    Is it silly of me that I really wish they opened that fictional hotel already so I could stay there for a week?
    hmmm…. can I stay there for a week?

      It’s not silly. I want to stay there as well. And yes they better keep the garden.

      Let me know what you found about it. I would assume it’s a private property, and not for sale.

What, we are 30 minutes in Episode 9, and she hasn\’t cried yet. Thats no bueno.

She got to cry this episode. She must, or it will never be the same.

      Oohh, yes and he got to touch them tears!!! That was special.

        Also that the tear got a separate shot, its own moment.

          That special tear was sexy hot after I realized it was a tear. When I first saw it, my instant reaction was “Woah, is it about to rain indoors? Is Dr Cha gonna show up?”

          Oooh, maybe her tear is a symbolism of the rain? Maybe it rains, because she keep crying all the time. So the only way it will stop raining is when she stops crying. .. Oooh I’m Soo good

          1

            Hahaha. I thought it was game rain too and zombie cha will come out. But..that didnt happen.

            Maybe because JW is such at a high level, HJ’s intervention is no longer needed. So theres no opportunity for another teary hug-not-hug situation with zombie cha looking at them.

    There it is. 35 minutes in. Yessss!!!! Is that a record?

    I am honestly fed up of seeing HJ’s nose pink this entire drama. I thought Doctors and Pinocchio had upped PSH’s stardom or more like maintained it. Even if I don’t like her acting, this is degrading to her. She has also been saying the same dialogues since forever.

    3
    1

      she cry a lot too in those drama you mention, but she had more steel in her bone. like she has her moment where she show her emotion more than tears. did she even have that in MOA?

      im officially decided this drama is not for me. the snarky diss on her totally unavoidable crying scene written by female writer who decided that’s what PSH amount to, totally turn me off from this drama. even with Hyun Bin acting cant make watch this.

      2
      2

        I haven’t seen both of these dramas but at least in Doctors I suppose she had a prominent role. Her character is supporting at best right now. And yes even though narratively I have no big issues with the script, only if it had been all men. There was no need to add a female lead when the show is pretty male centric. That’s off putting and drags you from the story, which eliminating this, is actually interesting to me.

        I am actually having fun with this drama, despite its flaws. Let’s just say, I’m not taking this drama seriously. I’m going with the flow. Whatever they show me, I’ll accept.

        Even the crying, I have stopped getting annoyed by it and started having fun with it (or making fun of it).

        The part I really do care about is the little sister. I pay attention to that, because Hyun Bin smiles during those scenes.

        2
        1

          Haha same with the little sister. Probably the best part in the entire show. I think I should stop bothering about those tears now too because even if slow, I think the narrative is good.

Oh, damn it! That\’s it. There\’s no thrilling cliffhanger. What kind of shenanigan is that?

So is this the new trend on this series? End each episode with forced romantic longing and such. Hmmm?

Oooh, she crying again.

Of course, it wouldn\’t be Alhambra if if she\’s not crying.

    Will this perhaps beat Go Ara in Hwarang for excessive FL crying? When it finishing we can compare lol

    3
    1

      For some reason, I don’t mind the crying so much here, but Go Ara drove me insane with her crying in Hwarang. It might be the actor (although I like Go Ara), or it might be the characters. Heeju was always a wimp from the beginning, whereas Go Ara’s character was badass at first and then just started crying at EVERYTHING, and staring down arrows instead of ducking.

      4
      2

        Agreed. I don’t like Hee-joo constantly crying in every eps, but it’s just so her. At least her character is consistent from the beginning (even though I still wish they wrote her differently).

The little sister of PSH in Alhambra has a much better character than PSH in the few minutes she\’s in this series. Thats just wrong Writer-nim.

    Seriously that was my thoughts too! It’s not like the writer can’t write a spunky character? Her younger sister was so cool and spunky! Why is PSH’s character such a doormat?

    3
    0

    I almost gave up at ep 3 when PSH couldn’t make up her mind and had to call her little sister. Are you referring to this or is there more to come? I never had luck with PSH’s characters and this time, I really wanted to like Hee Joo or at least be neutral. Show, please don’t make it hard.

      I’ve had problems with Hee Joo ever since. Episode 5 will show the same thing. But when I saw her little sister on episode 5, I had to wonder why PSH character couldn’t have that personality. Heck, she had a much better chemistry with Hyun Bin’s character than her unni.

Stop crying Park Shin Hye. Why do you always cry??

3
2

    I don’t mind when she cries. However, I didn’t understand why she was crying at the end of ep 5. A worried/confused look on her face would have been more appropriate, imo.

    0
    1

      Yes, if it’s appropriate. But I don’t find any appropriate reason why her character had to cry in Episode 5. Specially when he fell, first thing that should happen is call someone or 911. Instead, she waited, took her time to look around. She then went up to see Mr Yoo in room. he wasn’t there, so she hurried downstairs. Stop on 3rd floor, cry a little. Stop again on the first floor, cry again when she realized who it is. … Then finally she snapped out of it and called for help. Oohh that’s exhausting.

      I blew the writer and director for this. But this is also the reason why they hired Park Shin Hye, because they know this character is her forte.

Darn you, PD-nim, why did you cover Hyun Bin\’s abs with medical gauze? That would have been our chanfe. Damn it!

There are still a few filler scenes, but otherwise, you\’ve got me intrigued.

Did Memories really spend 20 minutes in the bathroom? My gosh!

Why is this drama so basic when it\’s not in the game?

Get your head in the game, Dang it!!! Don\’t make me wait till the end for it.
