Can time stop at this moment?
I’m enjoying Liar Game a lot, and I think it’s a good thing that I never watched the Japanese version, because watching remakes is really a very difficult thing to do. Comparing is inevitable. I’ve gave up on Cantabile Tomorrow. It’s so bad and such a far cry from the Japanese version. Others might disagree though.
Anyway, the latest two episodes of Liar Game, was pretty toned down, but still engaging. The main problem I’m facing though, is actually wanting more OTP moments, but I know this is a remake, and the plot and story could be considered somehow, fixed – so I have to constantly remind myself not to hope for too much OTP moments.
I have no idea what it was like in the Japanese version, or the manga – and whether there was a romance, and whether it leads to somewhere, and I am so tempted to actually research so that I know what I’ll be getting, but that spoils the fun, so I’m controlling myself.
There was something that I read up though, and I think it’s either the Japanese version or the manga, that the Liar Game was actually organized by a ‘hidden community’, which basically means sort of secretive, I guess?
In this Korean version, the Liar Game is a reality show broadcast on TV. As much as I like the drama, I actually thought it would have been better if it wasn’t a reality show broadcast on television. Somehow, ‘hidden community’ sounds very mysterious and fun.
Besides, the show being aired on television itself is pretty weird, because how can the cameras be following them 24/7? I mean, yes there is a way, but it’s just feels weird. I mean, during the show, they would randomly show footage of the contestants personal lives. I don’t know how to put it in words – but reality show just gives off a weird feeling.
I do enjoy the constant mind game Woo Jin and Do Young engage in – well, sort of. Do Young is an interesting character, because I still can’t figure whether he can fool Woo Jin and make his own face unreadable, or maybe he’s a genius psychologist himself? Hahahaha.
Oh – but the main purpose of this discussion is actually to ask – if I’m the only one who is missing something?
In Episode 4, they played the minority game, and in the end, Woo Jin voted a ‘No’. So technically, for the others to win, they must all vote ‘No’ and only one should vote ‘Yes’. However, that scene was kind of weird, because they showed the two ladies giving their ‘Yes’ card to Sung Joon, and Sung Joon held his ‘No’ card and switched it to the ‘Yes’ card at the last minute.
I don’t think they wanted to tie the score again – I thought only one was supposed to vote ‘yes’ and two of them vote ‘no’, thus the person who voted ‘yes’ would win. No?
It just felt strange….. and I was wondering if I missed out something?
They even went on to revealed that the two ladies voted ‘Yes’, and they were all in suspense. I mean….. if he had voted No, it would have been a tie again. Yeah – so I’m actually kind of lost. [EDIT: Someone told me that they didn’t have a plan yet, so they wanted to buy time, thus to make it a tie. AHAHAHAHA. Okay, I understand now.]
But, oh well.
I shall just sit back and enjoy. More OTP moments please :’)
