Episode 1 -Meeting
* Be sure to turn on the Closed Captions for subs.
We open our webisode with some sad tangoish music wailing in the background as our leading lady, Hana, walks across a bridge looking resolute and holding a brown paper bag. When I first saw the bag I assumed it held liquor (since here in the US that is usually the bag of shame you get when you walk out of the local liquor store.) but nope, reaching inside the bag she pulls out a gun and walks towards a locked room. She bangs on the door crying and screaming for the person inside to come out. Eventually the door opens and we see a more glamorous and put together version of her. (What? Is she a twin? Is this some serious mental collapse scene where this is all in her head? I am so confused) She screams at the other her "why did you do it?" To which the other her replied "I don't know, you would know better then I". Hana falls to the floor without firing the gun, tears rushing down her face as she completely breaks down.
We pick up right where we left off. Hul finds HaNa crying and staring at the river. She starts to climb the railing and he shouts (telepathically to her) to stop. She pauses and looks over at him and asks "what"? He again tells her telepathically to not jump. I guess this is a big enough reason to make her reconsider killing herself at that moment since she instead goes to a bar with the hottie alien and tells him her woes.
LET'S PAUSE HERE FOR A QUICK MONTAGE OF GORGEOUS SEO IN GUK + GIRL + GUN PHOTOS!
So that was a whole huge bowl full of unexpected. I actually love that this show is a lot quirkier then I was anticipating. The synopsis of the web series just stated that it was about two people who found each other at the end of their lives. Which to me screams tears, angst, and either suicide and or terminal illness followed by more crying. So it was a happy surprise to find that it is about a weird body snatching alien finding out about humanity quest. I also love both of the main actors who's style of acting are very dynamic and eye catching. Seo In Guk can do no wrong in my book but I was also happy that I liked Wang Ji-Won. She is an actress that I don't think can pull off perky or happy but as a suicidal crazy singer/killer she can totally excel. I am so sad that this is going by so fast. I believe that there are only 5 episodes which mean only around thirty more minutes of goodness. With the speed of the show we also don't have the time to really flush out any of the characters so we just have to accept them the way they are and rush forward. But since both actors are really selling their roles I will sit back and enjoy what little we get. I hope that all my readers give this series a chance. It is something truly different that everyone can try and enjoy.
