Beans of Wisdom: Cons and lies

This week in Beans of Wisdom…

In last week’s “Team Dramabeans: What We’re Watching,” Is 38 my new favorite number? says in comment 2.3.2:

Watching 38 made me realize something about drama watching.
1. You don’t need a shower scene to make me squeal.
2. You don’t need a kiss scene to make me excited.
3. You don’t need an entire flower cast for me to fangirl.
4. You don’t even need dramatic crying scenes to feel pain.
5. And you certainly don’t need amnesia or terminal illness to make plot twists and cliffhangers.

 

In “Wanted: Episode 9,” Eynay writes in comment #2:

I have a feeling that mastermind from all of this is that PD Joon Goo. PD Shin is his accomplice. Actually I suspect everyone in Production team including Beon Yeo. ?

To which Miranda replies:

I still think it’s a Subway footlong.

mango:

I agree.
The women was pushed off the building by an angry subway sandwich.

Andee adds:

Which footlong though? I’m suspecting the roast beef, but then again, the tuna does seem a little fishy…

In the same post, TM points out in comment #5:

What is incredible is that even if the show becomes bloodier and bloodier, the ratings of the show will still be quite high. Because people actually enjoy watching this kind of show, just like a lot of people love watching reality tv show. I wonder if in real life this kind of show could actually be aired (don’t they have a legal institution that regulates what can and cannot be aired?!). And would people really watch it? Are we that curious of other people’s lives?
Sorry I think I was a bit disturbed over all the murders currently occurring and Bo Yeon’s kidnapping.

francoise agrees:

honestly, even with are current culture climate today. i still think that people would actually watch a show like this if it was actually real. it’s a sad fact but it’s true.

 

Callie writes in “Beans of Wisdom: Save the sea lions” comment #5:

Love the positivity from last week’s beans of wisdom! ❤️

Honestly life is so much better when you stop worrying about the stuff you like being objectively “good” and just enjoy the things you enjoy. Not every drama needs to be groundbreaking in order to be relatable or really get you in the heart. There’s beauty in simplicity, and there’s beauty in complexity as well. We don’t need to disparage anyone for preferring one over the other.

Andee adds in comment #19:

And I am glad that some of the comments posted in the OP were there. I’ve seen quite a bit of shaming for my preferred dramas and, while I’m fine with criticism in a way, it’s a little too much when it results to name-calling. Scratch the “little”, actually, there’s a difference between criticism and hate. Fortunately some of the recappers and commenters are mature regarding this~

One tiny thing about the Gong Shim comment – you should never trust traffic if you’re in a kdrama. If you’re on the road it’s Game Over for you or another person. Heck, chances are the driver also spotted the Pikachu, lol

 

mystique noticed something in “Cinderella is determined to turn her knights into a happy family” comment #11:

Oh man is this the season of multiple guys crushing on the same girls. Looks like Park So Dam’s character takes the baton from Park Shin hye’s character in Doctors, only to pass it on later to IU’s character in Scarlet heart.

And i am still single *humph*

sunshine adds:

Looks like Scarlet Heart’s gonna be passing the baton to Hwarang: The Beginning. From flower boys in Goryeo dynasty to flower boys in Silla empire!

 

mary writes in “Kang Haneul, Hyeri up for deserted-island adventure romance Picnic” comment #7:

I bet that deserted island has a Subway branch hidden in the jungle.

Which sparks another thread of sandwich jokes. Like bips99‘s:

No, you anti-subway fans.

They packed a basket of subways which survived the crash. And feeds them for weeks and weeks showing the superior quality of subway food that does not rot. When the hero is going mad with delusions because of low sugar, the heroine lovingly offers him, her last subway hence sealing ever lasting love

pfft … and hence the name “picnic”

Or YY:

They keep themselves warm by draping subway wrappers all over themselves at night. They wear the remaining wrappers like how Tarzan wore his loincloth during the day. All their clothes got ripped off during the crash landing, see.

risa:

I’m pretty sure that for deserted islands, Subway delivers via sub.

You should check out the other comments for gems such as “coconuts of doom” and killer banana peels.

 

In “Age of Youth: Episode 1” comment #4, Dexterinthelaboratory writes:

It is unbelievable how Immensely I enjoyed the premiere. The sharing of living space between college going women is so on point and the characters so well drawn out, I am in love.

I loved the scene where The timid one, confronts her seniors expecting them to lie about eating her jam and they all just accept leaving her flabbergasted as if thinking “now what?” This is quite apt because in our head we keep imagining people to have wronged us not realising that they probably had reasons and did not really mean to.

 

Lord Cobol asks in “Bring It On, Ghost: Episode 6” comment #16:

How deep is that pond anyway? It seemed no more than waist deep when they were playing around earlier — only in Korea can you sink 20 feet in 3 feet of water.

Niyati replies:

well if ghosts can drown, I suppose ponds can be psychic and/or elastic.
‘Adjusting depth for drama purposes since 1861’ 😛

 

anabear confesses in “Two more promo crumbs from buzz sageuk Saimdang, Light’s Diary” comment #8:

I’ve already given up on sageuks, even the ones with best plots, because there’s this guilty feeling whenever I learn a lot about other country’s history than my own. however, there seems to be something universal and timeless about Dae Jang Geum that its nostalgia is enough to cajole me into watching this next project. moreover, if this show will attempt to question and challenge the inherent sexism of women in the past and present, then it’s something I should welcome.

Mindy replies:

I’m sorry that you feel guilty for learning of other country’s histories. I think that’s unfortunate, because learning about the history and culture of other countries helps people to feel a connection to people that aren’t like themselves, and each country and civilization’s history is so rich and captivating.

Of course it’s great to be well-versed in your own country’s history, but limiting yourself to just your country seems unnecessarily nationalistic and could limit your world view. Also, in many world conflicts today, the history of the respective countries plays a large part, so it’s important to be knowledgeable of a country’s history to fully understand their modern-day conflicts.

And Sancheezy reassures her in a roundabout way with:

I am sorry to said this but I don’t think you need to feel guilty

Most Saeguk doesn’t really true to history, they may get the name and the title right but for the actual event, it wasn’t a reliable source, you don’t need to feel so bad.

except for taiga drama (japanese historical accurary weekend drama) which more accuracy but it is obviously a history lesson on tv played by actor, so the drama part is less than a usual drama should be.

so we do learn more about perspective but that also happen in many asian country ruling and the time line for each drama doesn’t really corroborate with each other, not to mention the character portrayal such as Lady Jang in Dongyi and Jang Ok Jung can be different.

For me, Saeguk is telling a story from old Korean’s life perceived by it’s writer, take it as fiction with historical background.

but this is just my perspective

 

Wag_a_Muffin has a good point in “Yoo Seung-ho out, Su Ae in for KBS’s The Man Living in Our House” comment #10:

I think the premise sounds interesting. And also, whenever you try to distill a creative work in one sentence it usually sounds bad.

For example, one of my favorite books can be described with the sentence, “a short, barefoot guy finds a piece of jewelry in his house. The book follows his adventures as he goes with a friend to throw it into a volcano.”

Sounds boring, huh?

But I loved Lord of the Ring.

I think the premise, a girl who comes home to find a younger guy who claims to be her step dad could be a good K-Drama, depending on the writing. And I liked Bottom of the 9th.

 

Oshi warns us in “Police Unit 38: Episode 12” at #3.1:

The whole show is scam! Just like the moon landing!
The only real things are MDS and SIG!

pogo:

lol this really seems to be ‘question the truth’ season on dramaland.

First this, then W – they’ve been spinning us around so thoroughly I’m half surprised I even remember my own name!

In a different comment thread (5.2.3), Oshi repeats:

It’s all a lie. Don’t drink the koolaid!

Peach:

But they’ve tricked me so much already! I’m worried they’re tricking me into thinking that they’ve tricking me, when they haven’t tricked me, thus tricking me again!

 

Eerinmide Go Go has a wish in “Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 8” comment #5:

I HATE when dramas pull some sudden miracle at the end of a drama and then the terminally ill patient suddenly gets a ‘miracle’ or love suddenly heals all…

But I will accept anything at this point. A miraculous touch from a shaman. The tumor suddenly packing up its luggage and leaving. Just let him live :'(

 

Erratic shares an interesting tidbit about “W–Two Worlds: Episode 3.” In comment #12:

Lol. I saw a BTS from MBC showing how Lee Jong Suk’s pulse spiked when he grabbed Han Hyo Joo. Funny how that counters Kang Chul’s iron-ckad pulse control.

Good beanie maknaee replies:

this one, right?

I love how flustered Lee Jongsuk was when PD pointed out that his pulse exceeds 100 when he grabbed Hyo-joo’s wrist ? then Hyo-joo and the whole staffs start teasing him hahahaha

His pulse control is a lie! Kang-chul is affected! 계속!

 

In “W–Two Worlds: Episode 4,” unitedred writes in comment #1.1.2:

Kang Chul really reminds me of the male lead from Queen Inhyun’s Man. They’re both intelligent and consider all possibilities despite being on the brink of impossible.

Miranda replies:

I feel like Kim Boong Do is someone you could travel with to 2590 or 841 – he’s the Swiss Army knife of time travel companions, in that he already contains all of the pieces you’ll need for survival no matter where/when you end up.

Park Sun Woo is both a bit of an ass and a little cavalier with his incense stick usage, but better than your average time-traveling companion. Though I’d almost want to travel with his younger self instead? Also, Park Sun Woo had to deal with a much more complicated and rolling time-travel structure that consistently screwed him over no matter how carefully he planned, so there’s that.

No one should travel with the lady from Faith. She can help you if you get stabbed, but is also highly likely to get you stabbed in the first place. No one should travel with ANY of the Rooftop Prince guys. The girl from Splish Splash Love should be okay, though not very useful. And obviously anyone from Dr Jin should be murdered on sight.

 

deathbychocolate is a tech victim in comment #7.4.1.1:

And if I may add, that exactly was the reason Kang Children emphasized on just being friends than being his secretary during their talk. She was clearly undermining his authority.

*Kang Chul. Autocorrect. Shhhhh.

Which Miranda saves with:

That’s episode 15.

…ha, that would actually be incredibly mean, if Dad drew in a bunch of romantic obstacles like Kang Chul having a mistress and secret children and a hidden wife and a pregnant girlfriend, all just to screw with him. If Dad suddenly sketched in a four year old who calls Kang Chul “Daddy”, will Kang Chul retroactively know the kid? Will he be able to ditch a child that’s “his”?

I don’t think the drama will go in this direction, it would just be entertainingly petty of Dad. “If I can’t kill you, I’ll cover you in children! Now know the pain of being destroyed by your own creation!”

 

Lastly, erratic has this health advisory in comment #2.4.1.2.4:

I followed Police Unit 38, dropped it for some reason before the first case ended. I should pick it up again soon. But man, Signal’s intense. My gut’s clenched the entire time while watching.

Awesome core workout. Watch Signal. lol.

 

Thanks, erratic! We’ll keep that in mind. Just like how we eat our veggies, get lots of sleep, and read the Dramabeans Commenting Policy, right? *wink*

Yesssss!!!! 38 is also my new favorite number, after 1997 (if you know what I mean :D).

PU38 is another "I remember you" in making fan feeling lost and having no clue to guess what will happen next, in such a satisfying way.

PU38 is another "Reply 1997" in showing such a unique assemble of cast, everyone has their own flaws, everyone has their own little stories of who they are, but of course, PU38 is more wicked, smartass, mind-controlling, bla bla bla... as we are talking about real crimes (not about crimes of being a fan girl).

PU38 is another Seo In Gook's swoon-worthy drama.
Had I know that I would love him this much by now, I would have had fallen in love at first sign, when he first showed up in "Qualifications of men - the choir mission". (This sentence is from novel, not mine btw! Any fan? :P)

Sorry for my broken English today! Just cant help rushing the words out!

And is he really that hot..that people are so crazy abt him here.. how come he is not on kdrama news radar.. hardly hear abt him (or is it that he has not been doing dramas since quite some time now)..

Maybe there is some LOST like sorcery going on and after Shopping King Louie we have 6 numbers together to play the lottery, become multi-millionaires in our respective country, save dramaland by using the money to buy some Korean production company and shoot some dramas without kdrama tropes, hire our oppas, have our own WGM sans cameras, ok I'm getting carried away lol...

Forget Seo In Guk, he's an impostor!!!

Instead, give the OCN Daesang to Yang Jung Do and his inspirational speeches!

If he can rouse honest men to become conmen, and conmen to become justice warriors, and if a manhwa character can cross the screen to become real, then Jung Do can take Seo In Guk's place and get the damn Daesang. And also win the Presidency while he's at it.

"My mind whirls so many times watching W and PU38, I feel like a washing machine." WORD.

You know a drama is good when the audience is watching it thinking it's about con-men conning other con-men, when in reality, it's about a con-drama, conning the audience into thinking the conned ones are characters and not themselves. Then you have W, where manhwa character who becomes a "real" drama character in the real drama world, played by a real actor in our real world. Joke is on all of us.

Pfffft. I second this. Screw Seo In Guk. He's not real. Yang Jung Do is the real deal! Give him the Daesang!

How appropriate that the post's title is Cons and lies, and we've all been conned by PU38 so bad, we'll follow it until the edge of sanity.

Talk about leveling the con way up. We're no longer conned by characters, but by the drama itself. What is real? At this point, I'll believe anything. Kang Chul and Yang Jung Do can show up at awards show and steal every awards and I would be unfazed. XP

i sumhow have this save in my pc. i know. if only framing a comment isnt a weird thing.

""Watching 38 made me realize something about drama watching.

1. You don’t need a shower scene to make me squeal.
2. You don’t need a kiss scene to make me excited.
3. You don’t need an entire flower cast for me to fangirl.
4. You don’t even need dramatic crying scenes to feel pain.
5. And you certainly don’t need amnesia or terminal illness to make plot twists and cliffhangers.

What I realize you do need is:

1. Acting, acting, acting!!! It’s all about the acting. A good acting scene can be even more exciting than a slick action scene. In fact, we have proof that not all fight scenes needs martial arts gimmicks.
2. Writing, writing, writing!!! If the story is told confidently, if the writer clearly has (and by extension the con-man) planned an entire long-con for the villains, and also for the audience (darn it), and has mapped out the entire drama… You feel confident going in without being scared of getting makjang stuffs thrown in with no sense or logic. Every details matters, like tight writing should.
3. Chemistry!! The cast should work well together, and this goes back to acting. If all minor characters have wonderful acting chops, then all scenes have emotional values, and the ensemble becomes something epic, and the villains facing them, despite short screen time, are all distinct in mannerisms, and satisfyingly hateful. Also, if the cast is having fun on set, that helps. Good chemistry can create dramatic, AND comedic gold. Oh. So. Much. comedy. Somebody save my abs.
4. Writing, writing, writing numero dos! It’s one thing to have plotted well, it’s another to create characters well. If you give subtance to all characters, no matter how brief their appearances, the drama feels a lot more real, because the characters are not caricatures. In particular, this drama makes all female characters badass, and for that, I am forever grateful. A daughter is not just a daughter. A wife is not just a wife. The female lead has beliefs of her own, and doesn’t drop everything at the bequest of the hero. The “rival” female is so badass that she steals all the girl crush factor. And the Ahjumma is the most powerful of the bunch. All the females are on equal ground, in all aspects, to the male. MIND BLOWN.

Bonus cherry on top factors:
SEO IN GUK. If you’re in a drama, I’ll watch. Word. (please don’t let this bite me in the ass later on)
Directing style. It’s okay to be different. It’s okay to be raw at times. It’s okay to be slow at times. Show some confidence. Be original.
Soundtrack. My new theme song.
Ma Dong Seok’s English. Thank goodness I don’t have to listen to Engrish.
The fans. We’re a small group, but the love for this drama gives me fuzzies."

“Tree of doom” LMAO they fall down reaaaaaaaaaal slow and make a lot of noise. The heroine is struck dumb and just stares as a giant coconut tree slowly threatens to crush her. The hero sees it and has enough time to run down the hill and push her away, but not enough time to jump away himself.

I can just see it as part of a SNL Korea sketch.

So did anyone notice in the BTS for W that after they pointed out the heart rate fluctuations, one of the production staff members with a calm heartbeat had the finger thing on off camera for the real take?

It's the same video as the one in Beans of Wisdom. If you watch it til the end, you'll notice that after they shoot the actual scene, the staff in grey(?) sweater is seen removing the pulse monitor from her hand. :D Which means the "steady" pulse used in the show was actually hers.

No one should travel with the lady from Faith. True, but I'm so grateful that that character exists. When I see someone in a sageuk who's obviously had a ton of plastic surgery, I no longer experience cognitive dissonance-- I just tell myself that they must've been another of the time-traveling plastic surgeon's patients. (I suggest their story be called The Time Traveler's Knife.)

Yeah, time traveling with the Rooftop Prince guys would probably be a foolish choice, but I might choose to anyway for the Lulz.

Sadly, I've been very busy since last Thursday to the point that I have yet to read the W eps.4 recap page ? , there are over 700 comments already ??
Gonna catch it up soon, so that I don't miss any fellow beanies theories and hopefully can join in next eps discussions. ?

You need to allot a considerable amount of time. Not sure whether the comment count already reached 700. Lol.

So... did someone (mary?) actually have to plow through 1000+ comments for W this week for today's Beans of Wisdom?

With regard to the sajueks, I am glad someone mentioned they are fiction because sometimes I see comments where people are taking them as almost documentaries. Even if based on real events or people, these are fictional dramas. Where I think it is beneficial is we can still pick out bits of what the culture was like, and I 've often been interested enough to go out and read up on various parts of Korean history and a little Japanese as well.

Joseon Gunman was definitely too long and not a hit with international fans, but I maintain it did well in Korea because it was about a certain critical part of Korean history. I read quite a bit about it during and after the drama because the seeds were sewn in the drama re: end of Joseon Dynasty. That's the power of a drama, flaws and all.

I'm just gonna put it out here: How many beanies would buy a Subway Dramabeans shirt? Like the Subway logo font for "Kdramas" or "Dramabeans" or "Beanies."

Because I feel like we're all missing an opportunity to milk this joke for all its worth (like costs of servers for a year!).

LOL. I'd buy that hoping I'd bump into someone wearing the same shirt and earn myself a new awesome friend.

What's up with Squad fans... You are all so quiet usually, but once in a while, it's like everybody just decides to throw a party in a random post. LOL.

And yes, 38 is my new favorite number.

Probably because Squad 38 is a sleeper hit. As in people are sleeping on it, but it's still a hit. lol. I know that's not the actual definition of sleeper hit, but it's mine. XD It's not enough popular or noisy to be mania, but people love it quietly and ardently. You just need the right trigger.

im kinda dissapointed myself when read comments from beannies. like... im a super hrdcore inguk fan (or so people say) but i cant top these amazing comments about 38.

basiclly i never know that a drama can con me so much. wheneve i predict sumthing... it barely happens. or like just 5%. im more paranoid with the whole voice phishing n phishing websites. most real and natural acting from seo in guk. with jung dos expression. i mean cmon lets face it... most korean dramas they have the male actors just wnna keep ther cool handsome face at the ost inappropriate time.... (like when u heard sumone call u out of no were instead of looking suspicious n lookung for the caller they have the actors to slowly turn n.. oh heeey hi i didnt see u there kind of face).

n i think i never knew side characters would be as interesting n as strong as the squad. n watch every episode.... i will be like #squadgoals #bromance all over. they work so well together. can really see it even in the behind the scenes. i dont want to accept the fact tht its ending. its too soon! glad tht the got the hiigh ratings n a well deserve vacation together.

n proper mild stubbles from inguk... oh y oh my oh my... n jungdos rudeness...... i will bask in this bad boy as long as i can because would only see the squishy inguk in fan cams.. n before the chaebol make an appearance. i mean i even list down his characters just to break it down the style, manneris, personality for each... n all ive got are variety. how can i stop loving this nice specimen of existence with the amazing multiple talent. wishish he sang the ost tho but since he didnt sang in tkf up til noe... i dont think he will ever do one now.
