[Scene stealers] Poetic justice for forgotten characters


Life on Mars

By JustMe

We are all gathered here today to honor the forgotten
From the supporting best friend to characters we assumed rotten
So please bear with my poor rhyming skills
(Don’t worry, my writing doesn’t pay my bills)

The first stanza goes out to Tilda Morton
Who was nothing but a poor employee from Tim Hortons
She fell in love with a man with a human allergy
Then ran off, broke his heart, and took all his money
That is the story we all know,
But I ask myself is there more to her than this blow?


I’m Not a Robot

I now dedicate this section to dear old Truck of Doom
Whose appearance seems to mean times will be of gloom
But why don’t we all admit what he really means to us:
The true hero that makes people realize their feelings (to cut down all the fuss)
Remember how he brought an end to the confusion of About Time?
For that big favor, we should put him on a shrine.


About Time

Let’s take a moment to appreciate Kang Ki-young, the ever-supporting actor
Whose presence, to the drama’s success, is such a big factor
When he’s on screen I forget everything that surrounds him
Whether he’s playing a dad, an uncle, or talking to Secretary Kim
(But honestly he outshined Park Seo-joon? What a feat, this man is a treat!)


My Secret Terrius

Now let’s take a route to a drama that turned black and white into grey
And made me question if being okay is really okay
Lee Kwang-il in My Ajusshi who seemed nothing but a bully
Turned out to be a man filled with torment, pain, and regret
Yes, he did bad and his violence towards Jian makes no exemption
But he learned, and I loved every last bit of his redemption
He was no main character in this tale
But without him neither Jian nor Dong-Hoon could’ve said farewell


My Ajusshi

I leave the best for last
While he’s training for his team to win, his friends are out having a blast
You’ve guessed it: it’s 4th rower to whom I’m alluding to
His two second presence was enough to make my heart move
He represents the part of us that feels overlooked and alone
One day, I’d love to see you in a drama on your own


Thirty But Seventeen

I hope this short piece does justice to all the characters that moved me
While the rhyming was cheap, it was full of sincerity
Let us all hold candles up for the forgotten characters
They have won our heartsโ€“and snarkโ€”and that’s what matters


Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju

Though I've not seen the drama,

I will travel to the moon and back to do anything @mary's heart desires,
But I will at first address her plea to save the life of our favorite liar,
If AoY sadistically plans for the sudden demise of Ssong,
Then ToD must protect his favorite heroine because in the arms of Sung-min is where she forever belongs.

My favorite post for Dramabeans' eternity would be mary's "K-drama Non-productivity Suite"

I completely understand how you feel @egads since I robbed the life of that drama's scene stealer. My D-lister buddy Guyliner has not yet forgiven me for taking on that role (he stills gushes over how LMK has the best set of eyes he has ever worked with.)

But you know that saying of giving your 110%? I certainly cranked up my speedometer that night on set all the way to 110 kph. Was it necessary? Maybe not. But most writers don't like doom that feels pedestrian, so in my defense I am just giving my all to help propelling plot forward.

Could you also, maybe, kinda, take out Jin Gook from "Hundred Million Stars from the Sky". Or scare him back to his senses? Pretty please!

I loved your recent cameo in "Feels Good to Die"! It would be fun to see another cameo in the same show seeing as how the male lead has to die million times within the span of an episode!

If @sincerelytod you just registered my poor eyes thank you. It is easier now for me to read your comments.
Back in February I left this comment on the recap (@lollypip) for episode 4 of RADIO ROMANCE:

I think in the law it is said that every person is entitled to a defense. Regarding the so called "Truck of Doom" in this episode I think the truck may be entitled to a defense. What happened in this episode was not a classic kdrama TOD scenario. In this episode what occurred when the truck impacted the young man crossing the street was an accident.
The driver immediately attended to the victim.
The defense rests.

Now, TOD, I still have a problem with your cousin Motorcycle of Doom who took out my guy Min-ho in A POEM A DAY.

From that moment, this post had me.
In While You Were Sleeping he blew me away,
As a chicken-shop owner who knew how to slay.

So why is he always demoted?
When he's so talented and devoted?
I hope to see the day,
When a main lead he will play.

Hearing the name โ€œTildaโ€ always makes me laugh now thanks to Beanies and the preoccupation with the character on the fan wall. The way fans, especially Beanies, latch on to some of these minor characters always makes me laugh. Fandom truly elevates these things much of the time.

@vivanesca @growingbeautifully You don't even know how hard it was to rhyme Morton or even Tilda!! So I gave myself artistic liberty to tweak it up a bit. Who knows, she might've been canadian. She ran off with money so for all we know she could've lied about her citizenship. hahahahahahah

In my own defense, I rarely, if ever, cause permanent injury to my kdrama victims. Conversely, I allow most would-be victims to share a closer relationship than they would have with their tsundere leads as they protect them from certain morbidity. I also pride myself in injecting humor to scenes where the lead avoids certain catastrophe by using his athleticism to avoid me. For A Poem a Day, I admit that it was a cheap trick to go for Min-Ho puppy, and the writer warned me of the implications of taking that role, but I also have mouths to feed, and I made sure Min-Ho came away unscathed. (Which is more than what the Beanie fan-fic allowed him, you guys almost killed the poor guy!)

Spoken like a true and well-tuned 2-wheeler! I appreciate all those tropey moments of your blindly mowing down lead females, so that we got double confirmation towards which male the romance would turn. May I suggest that with your equally acknowledged fame and indispensability as ToD, you counter-propose to the PD that for a change, you mow down the annoying Tsundere male lead instead? (I want to see if anyone saves him!)

reply

Required fields are marked *

With all due respect, Respectfully, I have to disagree with your statement:

I made sure Min-Ho came away unscathed.

By the end of APAD's episode 14 this is what you had reduced Min-ho to. A shell of his former self. Here is Min-ho's soulful narration of the poem "Lily Magnolia" by Do Jong-hwan (with Indonesian subtitles):

Required fields are marked *

I apologize for the tardy reply. Iโ€™ve been at casting calls the last couple days. Although I am flattered you think me to have caused all of Min-hoโ€™s remorse, his brush with possible injury didnโ€™t cause his ultimate heartbreak, which was caused solely by his own delay in making his feelings known and immaturity towards Bo-young. (And really, wasnโ€™t this caused by some last minute edits to the script and storyline by the writer?)

And I agree about Kwang Il in My Ajusshi. So glad he had his redemption arc.
And my heart goes out to the 4th rower. Why didnt they just include him in the slumber parties? He wouldnt be a bother since he doesnt talk much. ๐Ÿ˜‰
And Tilda Tilda.. such a meanie.
Truck of Doom continues to wreak havoc though havent seen him recently so he may be on vacation. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I loved, I loved, I loved your post. Wow! And I felt you were very much right with Kang Ki-young, wherever he is, he shines and you just have to like him. And honestly I think he should have his own drama, being the lead man. He is handsome and charismatic enough.

Lee Kwang-il in My Ajusshi was another gem. A kind of a villain with depths. And I also feel that he brought Dong hoon and Ji an closer, if ever by trying to hurt them at the beginning, or indirectly helping Ji an to realise how much she cared for her Ajusshi...
Anyway, please @justme, keep writing. ๐Ÿ‘
You are really good at it!! ๐Ÿ˜Š
