my take on abyss -> CM hates handsome boys and in his view they are dumb, that is why he is handsome and DUMB.. yup! this theory on dumbness makes me less angry

Produce 3- just heard mama & love shot for the 1st time.. i mean why are these 3 agencies even famous when they are composing 1 good song out of 20 or 30 songs.. both compositions are underwhelming

Ques: Is American media struggling with why or how a super handsome man is not sex crazy, not a bad boy, and not someone promoting morality of convenience? Why is V introducing himself as “I’m not a bad boy”?

    I can honestly say I do not know why he is saying “I’m a good boy” other than it’s super cute and endearing!!!

    I thought the media had transitioned to the “cute boys” generalization when they realized asking them about girls and other such things resulted in too short/bland answers. I had assumed that when V introduced himself as a “good boy” it was a reference to GD and Taeyang’s song. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time a Big Bang song inspired an obsession with saying a particular English phrase in Korea.

      That was my assumption too.

      nah too random.. after years of debut ..
      nah! it’s totally an american thing.. like how american agencies must be trying to force fit their model on these boys.. but well it just doesn’t fit.. they aren’t the rockstars with a glamourous life of free choices with no responsibility..

      they are products of their culture which isn’t American as americans are products of their culture which isn’t asian

        Bigbang is basically iconic in Korea so it actually isn’t too far-fetched of an idea for people to still be quoting their songs years after they were released. Kids still love yelling out “You’re a loser~” or “Bangbangbang” even though both those songs came out half a decade ago. Plus, “good boy” is generally a term used in America when speaking about your dog or child, not boy groups, so I kind of doubt V’s use of it is American influenced.

        Although there are still a lot of issues with American coverage of BTS, I actually thought they’ve been very kind to BTS (at least for this round of promotions). BTS is lucky that because they are from a foreign country and aren’t mainstream they get the royal guest treatment all the time. Normally, since the American entertainment world is the most toxic and cut-throat in the world, the media would be like hounds trying to make a scandalous headline out of them. Anyway, I don’t think anyone’s trying to force a model on them when they literally know next to nothing about them. Also, no matter how they come across in their music videos, it’s just plain impossible to call them “bad boys” when they have bubblegum colored hair and do finger hearts lolol It’s undeniable though that American media is having a lot of trouble figuring out how to handle the BTS situation since the language and K-Pop culture factor is so different from what they are familiar with.

    I think it’s more that the shows haven’t done any homework and aren’t prepared to ask culturally appropriate questions. I was disappointed with Colbert this week. I expected more from someone who had a dance off with Rain.

So many clichés, one half of me does not want to appreciate the commercial obviousness of these scenes but the other half is the precise consumer target segment that Russo brothers are targeting with Endgame.
1. All women against the most deserving villain – I mean! Yeah.. This was shot after wakanda
2. He who starts, must end! — and if you watch the Jimmy show now, you know Scarlett gave the biggest spoiler in history of spoilers.. But nobody knew.. But you know, the one she was looking at when she said it, knew!.. That person knew! 🙂 …
3. Well!.. Guess they never could find the right origin story
4. The originals!.. Will miss
5. They really did go with Mackie… I honestly wanted Sebastian.. But whatever (shoutout to Tom Holland’s fans 😛 )
6. So, again .. Why did we need marvel in the first place?
7. I’m not crying.. No.. No.not at all
8. Future is clear: Guardians 3 is lined up and we can be sure about who is guest starring
9. LASTLY, oh so many end scenes were spoilt.. And have been around since infinity war or before.. It was interesting

i don’t know if i still want to believe that Kang Seung mo killed the women , set fire maybe.. because this was the obvious red herring from the very beginning and i am sure many had that theory – them not showing the man pulling the body into bathroom, his smile when he fell off the window with the psychometric kid… the lighter obviously being taken from dad’s bag to frame him in hope police will catch him.. But I hope there is still some twist in there

i am confused. So who is the painter of those orbs paintings.. his mom? him – but y is he purchasing back his own paintings.. has to be his mom.. rival fan is def daughter of crazy boss

    I’m confused too.
    If I had to make a guess, I was thinking he’s the real painter… Or our heroine is, then the male lead and the idol both fall in love even more with her once they find out the truth . Or would that latter theory be too ridiculous?

    1

      Can’t be the heroine though. Otherwise she wouldn’t have bid to buy her own painting for $27,000

      I think best bet is our male lead or male lead’s mom who left him. He and Shi an are step brothers – but i am not sure if their father is common or mom.. if both have same mom, then i would understand why male lead hates shi an that much

      lol..i just hope one gets some meatier role this time.. it would be fun to see idol taking interest in his fan (or two.. no wait three for what we know of)

      and i am loving the crazy boss.. in every show now she has played a different character.. and i like this crazy interpretation with a hint of meryl streep’s cold insults from prada.. boss is a total bitc

      hmm, well there is a 20 yr old girl and she is the daughter

      Now someone needs to tell me that NaNa and Jang Ki Young are 40ish in the drama

    I’m willing to suspend my disbelief for this drama, but that twist is stretching it too far. He is like 10 at that time! Also, who is the mother?? How is that even possible? Even if they are trying to explain it away with that artificial insemination thing, it’s still too mind-boggling.

    0

      lol.. i know.. unless he is 40 and super hot. but he isn’t because we saw he was 10.. or maybe ageing is slow in experimented kids..

      this is so so so weird… and worse when the kids were killed, she was already born 😛 (we saw foster mother with a baby).. so daddy is still 10, in orphanage and baby also arrives in orphanage?

      this drama is all bonkers

Eddy Kim!
It’s not even a mere trend analysis, but I am willing to bet everything that the close knit circle of JJY is demented. Whether people like Zico are revealed or not, there is enough to say that such folks are part of it too — all those careless statements here and there make so much more sense, and this is not witch hunting.

The other icky thing is, while I understand that Korean culture doesn’t think much of men and their shenanigans, but these American Koreans definitely come from a society where these actions are known crimes.. There is not even a cultural angle to say that these guys did what society was doing.. NO!!!

I am surprised how dramabeans has stayed away from even mentioning the current scandal from editorial perspective, infact the “news” section was stopped since the controversy

0

    Not really. The “news” section is very much alive and active. And DB does not go into the personal lives of stars. There was no mention even of the metoo movement last year. PLUS DB is for dramas, and until a few minutes ago, the current controversy involved only kpop stars.

Ep1 go back couple: 1st you chose to be a housewife then stop cribbing about the man not earning enough. Not everyone can become rich! 2nd if the kid is unwell, just go to the hospital, why keep calling up your husband – what will he do, either he will tell you to go to the hospital or come down to pick you up? All these couple dramas only focus on trying to make woman look pitiful – with no gifts, too many kids to care for etc etc… it’s a pitiful life on both ends..men haven’t got it easy either

    That’s the point of the show. They both are blind to the others’ pain. Marriage takes two and right now they can only see themselves.

      Yeah this is the point. They lack communication and take each other for granted. And as @jig wrote: they were blind of each others pain.

        This is one of the few dramas that show the hardships on both sides. They will both realize they are equally responsible for their problems and they see how the other half wasn’t having it easier. I loved this show to bits❤️

    She does the same thing during another crucial scene. Both of these scenes drove me mad with rage because we were not given a reason why she was acting like this. But I have rewatched this show many many times and although I still get angry at her I have started to see more and more of a relative of mine in her. My relative suffers from extreme depression and I have seen her doing exactly this same kind of irrational exaction and guilt tripping to her husband. I have come to the accenptance that Jinjoo suffers from extreme depression too. Which makes sense with the kind of rather lonely life she has.

    I don’t exactly think being a housewife was fully Jin-joo’s choice (I may be wrong, I’m only on ep4). They don’t seem to be able to afford sending Seo-jin to something like daycare, and it’s still pretty common for Korean women, even younger ones, to be expected and expect themselves to be housewives after giving birth.

    About her frantically calling Ban-do, I really think that more than tangible support, she is seeking emotional support, because she’s in a very anxious state. You’re right that Ban-do has it hard, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t too. The drama doesn’t overly favour either; it’s trying to show how they are both struggling, and so their marriage is, too.

      i don’t know about drama, but this particular trope i have seen everywhere.. when they need to be at hospital, they frantically call husband and then that becomes a issue.. which is wrong at so many levels.

      1. Why is it always the “weak” woman who has to search for the man for whatever support
      2. If drama shows that the other partner knew and then didn’t bother or wasn’t there for spouse emotionally, then it is an issue, but not like this.. when a woman is perfectly capable of handling the situation

So,you almost killed a group of kids, bashed the car into a shop’s wall, walk out, adjust your cap, and walk away; and people standing around don’t even bother to check what happened to the driver of the car or that he is going away without even checking up on the people he almost hit?
Kill it doesn’t have logical plotholes, it has a deluge of illogical plugins

    To make it fair, if I was the parent of these kids the last thing I would care about is how the driver is doing. Also, considering his situation checking on kids would be pointlessly harming for him (identification, plus kids had grown up adults who could take care of them).
    The only strange thing that I always find in this type of scenes is that shops are always empty at the time of crash

      It seems like gambling some 2000$ over golf. Which well is nothing compared to the actual issue, and I wonder why KBS sensationalised it at all.

        i think they just want Koreans to think that “KBS” is not corrupted.. and cast well they are not KBS staff.. they are like hired temp resources.. so “see! we are so committed to bringing out the truth to you and we made sure to check phones of all 1n2D folks”

        They probably sensationalized it because it’s Cha Tae Hyun… Both Cha Tae Hyun and Eugene Kim (of SES) are well-known Christians and are also known as really good and kind people in the industry, and so, if their names pop up in any sort of news that isn’t related to their work, people will generally sensationalize it…. It almost happened a couple of months ago when Shoo, an SES member, was caught in illegal overseas gambling headlines but it was initially reported to be Eugene, but she immediately put out a statement to refute the news saying that it wasn’t her

          they aren’t the only famous figures… nor the most famous.. and if texts exist then they exist..
          also, i don’t get christian logic.. just because someone is christian doesn’t mean they are good..

            Aren’t the most famous or the only figures, but they still do have that sort of reputation and influence in within the industry— if you were to ask around, another celebrity that holds the same influence is Sean from Jinusean….

            And though the logic is stereotypical, because it’s South Korea, where appearances and reputation is everything, then being Christian is also another layer of standard people will hold to a person and expect that they should be good and do good— faith is a really big part of Korean Choi, regardless of you are Christian or of another belief
