The Koreanwiz page is here: www.koreanwiz.org/at/drama-devil.html and this page has a lot of other links, including the KBS VOD page and the KBS Global Marketing page in English (warning - contains spoilers) (and it really does contain a lot of spoiling content, I must say - I didn't read it but I could tell just from a glance at it.)
Hmm. I linked to the SoCal board for the show, and it says one character has "psychometric powers." I looked up "psychometric" and found out it (per WordNet) is a descriptor for "any branch of psychology concerned with psychological measurements"--er. Okay. And, Wikipedia says, "Psychometrics is the field of study (connected to psychology and statistics) concerned with the measurement of "psychological" aspects of a person such as knowledge, skills, abilities, or personality...."
So, the person has the powers to study psychological abilities? I somehow think they meant something else...LOL...
It looks like nchristi on the SoCal board probably cannibalized that info from KBS somewhere, so it's understandable there'd be some weirdness in the word choice. I do wonder what they mean, though. I guess we'll find out.
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."
. . .Wikipedia says, "Psychometrics is the field of study (connected to psychology and statistics) concerned with the measurement of "psychological" aspects of a person such as knowledge, skills, abilities, or personality...."
The Wikipedia article for "Psychometry", rather than "Psychometrics", says
In recent years, the term has been superseded in favor of "token-object reading" so as to avoid potential confusion with the psychological term, "psychometry".
