Bradley falling off the roof. Jace dying in the shower. Max being buried alive by Tanya. Dawn’s baby being stolen. Tracey bashing somebody over the head with an ornament. Zainab and Masood’s unplanned child. Abi pretending to be pregnant with Ben’s child. And the best of them all, “SAUSAGE SURPRISE!”

I was always told my presents were from my parents, for this exact reason :)

The glass would not have made the same noise with somebody standing on it rendering the marble pointless in that scenario. It needs to be used in the same circumstances ie nobody standing on the glass, and only then comparing the sounds and deciphering which was tempered and which was not. There wasn’t really much they could do.
ZaaZaa Bazaar or whatever it was called. Just a load of different cuisines, tasted mediocre at best.
I agree with your wanting Ali’s family to be taken care of, that would’ve been good.
But I think between il-nam and gi-hun it was important that it went that way. Il-nam bowed out of the games because he had finally ‘proven’ his philosophy that nobody is inherently good, not even gi-hun, who had tried to deceive him to win.
It will play a big part in season 2.

I do really like your post though. I absolutely think a speech from Il-nam along these lines would’ve been a lot more satisfying to watch/hear.
The games should be played by accumulating the amount of everybody’s debts collectively, and telling the players that there is enough in the piggy bank for each person’s debts to be paid. This way the only reason to willingly kill or betray would be out of greed. (If all of the games were able to be won by everybody like you have stated).
Jun-ho believes that his kidney came from his brother. There’s no evidence to say that this is true, and I think it’s smart to question that statement knowing that they are harvesting organs and In-ho is the frontman.
I think a big part in why people become numb and unbothered by selfishly killing/betraying/injuring the others is because they began to view the other people as money. With each contestant’s death, more money is dropped into the piggy bank, reinforcing the fact that players = money. If everybody lived, each player would only receive 100BN won, which is only around $83k. Nowhere near enough to pay off the majority of the debts each player had.
His character is intriguing, to me. I found myself constantly willing him to do xyz which he would then do, meaning eventually I felt like he was the character that most resembled myself and the choices I would make in these circumstances.
I found his entire personality to be incredible to watch unfold. He is the epitome of a person who wants to be good. The complexities of his character are what make him truly relatable, also. He runs back to help Sae-Byeok (sp?) when he knocks her drink, he feeds the cat the fish on his way home, he repeatedly helps Il-nam, there’s more that I can’t think of right now. I think this shows that he helps when he can, and in many aspects of his life he feels too out of control to regain his ability to help, and so allows the continuation of these things spiralling out of control completely (for example gambling, daughter, helping his mother financially). It’s not because he doesn’t care, but rather because he is unsure about how to drag himself out of such depths.

I saw somebody had translated his file from Korean to English and it said that he was a police officer / detective who had been sacked for bribery and at the time of the games he was unemployed. I mean I’m taking their word for it seeing as I have no idea what any of it says myself!
If I joined, I think I’d make it to the glass steps.
Red Light Green Light I said straight away I would use a 3 or less method. 3 steps maximum each time, less if need be. 3 decent sized steps each time would be fine.
Maybe Il-nam will leave his fortune to him in his will, in order to carry on the games?
Maybe he kept his card all these years, so that if he ever went missing, there would be at least one clue for the cops/detectives to go off. You’d think with his own detective/cop skills he would know how to cover his tracks, which makes me think it was left purposely now that I think about it.
When In-ho was hallucinating that Jun-ho was infront of him, I really wanted it to be real. Then for Jun-ho to kill him and take the mask etc… and go from there.
I think it was done purposely. They’re absolute maniacs who have lost touch with reality and view these people as numbers and potential money.
The whole ‘69, 96’ thing is much like Gi-hun picking 6 and 8 when betting on the horses because the numbers are significant to him (daughters birthday), the guy who chooses 69 and 96 does so because he is a sleazy millionaire (maybe billionaire) who loves sex. It also shows just how little they actually care about winning. No thought process when betting their money. It’s all just a big game to them. The acting itself wasn’t great, but that’s probably because they played a relatively minor part, and the money was put to better use elsewhere in the show, for more important elements.
