Re: I've been waiting forever for a drama with Kang Ji Hwan. I like Sung Yu Ri a lot too, but after watching episodes 1 and 2 I got a look at the rest of the cast and know how this is going to go. They dug up every predictable bad guy and stuck them in this one. A lot of viewers will love it, but not my cup tea. Lots of yelling and posturing. I'm sorry I have to pass on Kang Ji Hwan. Maybe next one.
--- Bizarre Bunch Forever!!!!!!!!
Jongnam and Suky forever!!!!!
Re: Sticking with it still I love this drama. Lots of my favourite actors both heroes and villains. Not really thrilled wth the main heroine. Too passive and not much sex appeal. The guys are all great good and bad. I really will be better off when this finishes so that I can get to bed before midnight on Monday and Tuesday each week.
Is anyone else watching this? It really has been good.
Re: Re the ending coming up I have been watching this drama even tho I m losing sleep as it is late at night. I really am quite engrossed in it but I am wary of the ending. I don't think it will end the way you would think. Probably not a really happy ending. I may be wrong. I can't quite decide who is the main monster since there are so many nasty characters in this drama.
I would love to hear another opinion re this drama. Is anyone else watching this.....
Re: K-Drama: 몬스터 (Monster) Hi PeggyME, I feel for you! I had been watching this drama too, and really liked it, especially the Lead Guy. But I missed a bunch of episodes during long summer vacation, and since then, I went on a binge instead over The Flower In Prison, and so now I hope someone can explain the ending of Monster or point to a recap site (I cannot find one on this particular drama). Congratulations in sticking it out.
Re: The Monster well it is still not clear who will win. There has to be at least three changes of top guy in every episode. The writer has a very involved brain and he is using it very well. I think it must be almost the end by now. I missed one episode since I fell asleep in the chair and did not wake up until after 1 a.m I caught up with the episode nxt day however, and I am no wiser as to the eventual winner. I really have not seen a drama which has so many vlllains and twists and turns. I think, by the way, Mlle Irene you might find something to help you on Asian wiki which should be at the top of this first post.
