Beanie level: Noble idiot

Her Private Life dispensing with prolonged unnecessary misunderstandings and getting straight to the heartfelt chats is a big part of my love for this show.

Aside from all the hotness that is

I’ve watched the first four episodes of Abyss and I can’t bring myself to care. The characters are very one-dimensional. The tension is at the exact same pitch all the time with insufficient comedic relief, romantic suspense, or anything much beyond the hunt for Oh Young Cheol to vary it. I am finding it hard to see how this is going to sustain my interest over 16 episodes. I also hate all the body shaming and oppressive beauty norms. And I don’t think the leads have very good chemistry.

I love you, Park Bo Young, but I may not see this through to the end.

    It put me to sleep. I don’t care about the characters at all. They really are one-dimensional and not even PBY is elevating the material though AHS and the serial killer’s characters seem to be driving the story, such as it is, which is not a good choice.

    I gave up after ep 2, with the faint hope that if beanie reviews about the coming eps were good, I’d pick it up again. Guess not.

    Me agree……… I was waiting with excitement for Abyss to be released before. Oh well, so sad given that Park Bo Young rarely seen in any project right after one is ending. *sigh

    I gave up after 1st episode. Not sure why- the plot isn’t badly written, I like the cast (but I do agree about the chemistry), I also just don’t care.
    I feel like the main problem is that the characters don’t exactly give us the reason to like them.
    The main guy started up as a guy who was mad about the discrimination he faced over his looks, but himself liked two girls who were both super pretty (and one does not exactly give other reasons to like her). The other, our female lead, said she was too out of the league for her friend of 20 years.
    Not that any of them suck as people they are just not as interesting as the show wants us to think

Yes, I do know there are other Kdramas broadcasting at the moment, but I want to watch Kim Jae Wook and Park Min Young be smoking hot and look adoringly at each other for an hour.

Again again.

I am rewatching Episode 4 of Her Private Life and there is so much about that is perfect. Ryan\’s pained, confused and earnest expressions and Deok Mi\’s mobile, thoughtful and mischievous face ❤

AND ANOTHER THING ABOUT Her Private Life.

They look so relaxed together in the BTS. I feel this entire show is cleansing away my residual Secretary Kim discomfort for PMY.

    Indeed! I totally love seeing their BTS. They look comfortable with each other on and off screen. 😘
    Last week I saw a video taken by a passerby at the filming site, PMY playfully punched KJW’s face. LOL. They didn’t even notice they were being recorded. And yesterday one of the crews shared the team’s selfie, PMY comfortably leaned on KJW. Honestly, I’m staying with this drama for these two which I never expected I would do so because I never like PMY’s acting before. 😆

    1

      I love PMY but wasn’t sure about KJW being able to do rom-com tbh. He has icy babe down to perfection.

      With Secretary Kim, I began to detest PSJ almost as much as his character because of the BTS. He seemed like such an attention-seeking man-child that I felt sorry for PMY having to do so many intimate scenes with him. Bleurgh.

      But not so in this show! Adults being professional and respectful. Happy sigh.

    I love the fact that this show emphasizes on the importance of CONSENT. He asked her and waited for her consent before softly kissing her cheek (though it’s her imagination).

    Because I’m getting sick of abrupt kiss from male lead which always happen in k-drama land and the female lead will end up being surprised. It might look sweet in k-drama land but I consider it as creepy if it happens in real life. LOL

    Last week viewers were guessing that the rooftop kiss was fake because there’s no way Ryan would abruptly kiss her without her consent. And they were right!!! I hope this drama will keep the same momentum till the end.

      💯. It is also so much sexier when it’s articulated and shared, as opposed to sex being something that happens when a male character’s desire is let loose upon the female character.

      I also liked the conversation between Seon-Joo and Deok-Mi about confessions. I felt it really followed that same line of mutuality and respect.

    I love the fangirling, the professionalism, and the non-skeevy motivation behind him suggesting the charade. Also. Beyond time for him to be first lead.

    Okay, yes, hella queer-baiting, but in a non-exploitative or demeaning way. I think? I hope.

      I liked the positive LGBTQ+ nod too, yes. Of course, it was very quiet implicit in both cases, but they did it gracefully.

      On the other hand, I’m sure the Writers could have made much more of an effort when representing the different ethnic backgrounds of the White Oceans fans on Deok-mi’s web page. The Indigenous woman caricature — a woman essentially dressed like Pocahontas, like does that make any sense??? — was really not good…

      overall though, I am tremendously enjoying the show, clichés and all. 🙂

Let’s be honest: as long as Kill It continues to unironically give me shots like this I will be 💯 onboard.

These jerks. 💕

Otherwise I am mainly feeling Kill It and He is Psychometric these days. I have drifted away from Haechi and the inexplicable Item. I might pick up Possessed now that I know it is getting subbed.

The last few episodes of Romance is a Bonus Book were a bit Kang Dan-I light and a bit daddy-issue-heavy for me. I could have done with less of the unnecessary rapprochement of the two “sons” and more of Dan-I reconciling her past life (child, family, ex-husband) with her present life. Oh well.

So, with Romance is a Bonus Book, I appreciate their representation of the “choices” women have when it comes to marriage, children, and their career; and it recognises how women are punished and judged for whatever choice they make. I hope that in the remaining episodes they don’t just leave it there or rely on exceptional circumstances to allow Dan-i to gain a secure position of employment.

    Agreed – while I do think that Dani lying about her experience is problematic, I also understand why she did it. I think she deserves a chance somewhere, but I also think that just because she’s an exceptional worker doesn’t mean she should necessarily be given a second chance. She needs to earn back that trust and start over again with a clean slate.

    I suspect Manager Seo will go to bat for her, but Go’s reaction, while appropriate, is also a little too much for me. For one, I think she needs to talk to the president about this, not just Eun-ho. I get that she’s a higher up who can make these decisions but it also feels a little personal on her end, which is a problem. She’s always picked on Dani and even though she was finally warming up to her, she still seems to have some resentment. Also, her friend is a b**** and needs to learn some compassion.

    5
    3

      I agree to an extent. Dan-i’s lie is only a small problem for me because she didn’t pretend to have skills she didn’t have. She is more than qualified and capable for the job she was hired to do. I know people who knock their PhDs off their CVs because recruiters have queried whether they will be seriously committed to a non-academic job. I know HR folk who recommend not including one’s university graduation dates on one’s CV because it tells employers the applicant’s age, and some employers are known for rarely-to-never hiring people over a certain age. If people need to work to live, and the employment gatekeepers have prejudices and biases that unfairly impede one’s ability to access that work, then I think it is acceptable for people try to circumnavigate those biases through some white lies. She did what she had to do to survive.

      Go’s reaction really annoys me because it questions Dan-i’s behaviour as ethically suspect rather and not whether their hiring practices are as equitable and fair as she had thought them to be. Dan-i’s lie should point up the discrimination inherent in their recruitment policies and practices, illuminating how they create insurmountable barriers that are ageist and sexist. If they hire her AND change their recruitment policies, then at least there will be a little joined-up thinking in evidence. However, if the dilemma’s resolution is simply that her “merit” warrants making an exception, then nothing has been learned at all, and the resolution will affirm the onus on individuals to somehow flourish despite being denied meaningful material opportunities to do so and thus the necessity for a fairy godmother/prince in one’s life, such as Eun-ho – a pleasant fairytale.

      Plus the idea of some jobs being “too menial” for someone because they have a university degree or white-collar work experience is so elitist and gross. No-one is “above” making tea or making photocopies or stocking a fridge, and thinking otherwise is the hallmark of a 🗑 human, Manager Go.

        well written.

        Agreed. This is my problem. Dani is evidence of systemic failure. Is what she did right? No. Was it necessary for her survival? Yes. Where, then is the line? I think that Dani losing her job here would make sense; but I also think that they could put her on probation of some sort or otherwise deal with her internally in some way. I don’t think acknowledging her good work is enough to overlook her lie.

        My issue with Go is that she (a) takes the word and advice of one person who has shown clear bias in the way she talks about Dani rather than use her own judgement and knowledge of Dani’s character to assess the situation; and (b) that she basically makes an executive decision, which is in her purview, but not really a great idea considering the wider implications, as you pointed out. Why not look at every contract employee then? How does she know Dani is the only one who lied? Yes, from the start Dani has overstepped her bounds in many ways, but that doesn’t necessarily make her the only person who has lied. The fact that she has never issued any complaints or elicited any for her work is indication that she is dedicated to her job, no matter how “menial”. It’s not up to Go to decide what is and isn’t worthy of someone.

        Where I do agree with Go is her worry that Dani is using her contract position to get to a higher place without putting in the same work. It’s not that she doesn’t have the skills or ability to do a more advanced salaried position, but in this case the lying coupled with the overstepping is a real worry and one that she should consider. But, then she should talk directly to Dani and the President. She needs to get all the facts before issuing her punishment. Going about it by having Eun-ho do her dirty work is cowardly and underhanded. If she has a problem with Dani, then she should talk to her herself.

        tl;dr Dani is in the wrong (to a degree) but Go is more in the wrong about how to handle it because she assumes too much without looking for all the facts.

        3

          Totally unrelated: I do have this nagging feeling that Dir Go will go meet her ex and somehow that will make her think about giving people ‘second chances’.

          Hmmm. Hmmmmmmmmmmm. I think I lean strongly toward “if the rule is unjust then no-one should be obliged to follow it”. Because I am an agent of chaos.

          But seriously. I think in a fair organisation there would be a collective consultation and decision-making process for addressing Dan-i’s lie, which would involve both senior and junior staff. Alternatively, she is already a temp staff member so they can simply not renew her contract when it expires. Firing her creates a problem in that it removes a full-time employee from the workforce without any plans to cover it, and seems like poor resource management. I do agree about Go’s indirect but also high-handed management style: poor form.

          I am of two minds about her overstepping. On one hand, a staff member who focusses so much on everybody else’s business that they neglect their own responsibilities is definitely overstepping. However, if someone is delivering their work and is also working hard to learn and contribute to the organisation, then a good manager should encourage and foster their subordinates’ professional development. For Go, it seems like the problem lies in the importance placed on “knowing one’s place”: “if you do not succeed according to these arbitrary rules then you are doing it wrong”. That woman loves a hierarchy.

          2
          2

            I’m the same about the overstepping. I don’t think it’s too much of a problem because Dani gets her work done. I don’t think she should be discouraged from giving her ideas, though. A good supervisor listens to everyone’s ideas.

            I think the problem with Go is that she isn’t a good supervisor. She’s excellent at her job but she doesn’t know how to handle people. I don’t know if this is a result of her ambition (which I love to see in female characters) or as a reaction to the way she, as a woman, was treated for having such ambition. She clearly can be a good mentor, and I think 98% of the time, when she calls people out or says what she thinks of a project she’s pretty spot on. But I think she has this weird resentment when it comes to Dani. It’s manifesting itself here with her choice to fire without further investigation.

            As for whether Dani’s lie is big or small — I agree and disagree. I think the rule is unjust, but rules exist for a reason. Sometimes the rule is wrong, but the rationale behind it is right. Maybe if the rationale is examined that can lead to a solution. Dani lied. Lies get you fired. That’s the rule. But why do lies get you fired? Because they can be harmful to the company. Was this lie harmful? Not really. So, does that mean she should be allowed to get off scot-free? No, because it sets bad precedent for others. But does she deserve harsh punishment? No. The harm involved needs to be addressed for sure, but the reason it occurred — sysytemic discrimination — is more important and needs to be addressed. But Dani also needs to learn something from this, and I don’t expect her to single-handedly change the system or anything. But instead of firing her off the bat in what feels like an emotional and not a rational reaction, Dir. Go needs to look for all the facts not just the ones that fit her narrative, which, yes, really loves the hierarchy.

            Thank you and @snarkyjellyfish for this interesting thread. I have gotten some fresh perspectives on this issue.

            Regarding Director Ko – I havent been able to figure what exactly was bothering me. I did not want to outright paint her as a bad person/bitch because I was hoping the narrative explains her point of view. Initially I thought she was just a old school rule-based person. Then that went out the window with the Gangnam Leopard and the girls night out. I thought she was warming up to DanYi.
            But now that you mention about ‘knowing one’s place’ and ‘hierarchy’ I started thinking. One scene really stood out – Ep 11 I think. They were in the restroom and Director Ko walks out of the stall. Dan-Yi pulls some paper towels and gives it to her (she did the same for Seo). But Director Ko returns the used towels to Dan-Yi instead of trashing it. I thought it was extremely rude. Taking a fresh towel from someone I get it. But I would never give my dirty towel to someone else.
            Is that how she perceives other people. They are beneath her in the hierarchy so its ok to treat people that way?

            I generally dont like watching workplace dramas because it riles me up. The work culture, the treatment of subordinates etc.
            I thought this one was a light drama, but there is so much drama here too inspite of having a bunch of wonderful people in this company!

          I think we agree on most points and have a similar interpretation. Except for the intrinsic significance of rules, which is something that is probably an agree-to-disagree situation. I think a lot of rules are arbitrary and unjust and are never applied with equal force whic compounds their unfairness, but now MY POLITICS ARE TALKING so I shall retire.

          2
          1

            Oh, I get that. I’m a civil rights lawyer so I really know that the rules unfairly applied to certain people. Never get me started on my thoughts regarding criminal sentencing procedure because I will rant.

            But I’m also trained to look at rules and figure out how to deal with them so to me understanding them before breaking them apart is the key.

        My version of this wasn’t written so elegantly. I just said, “She’s either overqualified or been gone too long to get a proper position, can’t be both.”

        I agree with everything you said. I don’t understand why leaving things off your resume is a problem. The problem is definitely lying about qualifications you don’t have.

        2
        1

          As far as I can tell, the reason Dir. Go said it was a problem was because she saw the lies as an underhanded way for Dani to get into the company before trying for a better position. Which, to be fair, is not an out-there interpretation of Dani’s actions. Essentially she’s suspicious of Dani’s motive for leaving things off. (Which, like, she could, oh I dunno, talk to Dani about? I don’t get why she doesn’t confront Dani.)

          However, the bigger issue to me is that she’s not looking at the bigger question of why someone as qualified as Dani would do such a thing. Someone doesn’t take a lower position for no reason. If she looks to the why then maybe she’d understand more and be more lenient.

          1
          2

            I said the same thing why did she ask EunHo and not DanI what was going on?

            2
            0

            The thing that gets me is that Dir. Go knows that Dani is a divorced and has a kid. She knows the situation. She can probably deduce why she did what she did. And then she can take proper action and ask questions. She just reacts and she does so in an unreasonable manner, and I think this is in part because she subconsciously (or consciously) dislikes what Dani represents, which is a woman pulling herself up by her bootstraps and powering on despite everything. And I think she dislikes that because she herself has never fully come to terms with the life she chose — look at how she lives. She keeps her home a mess but she’s impeccable outside. If that’s not an in-your-face metaphor for emotional turmoil I don’t know what is.

      Dan-Yi lying on her resume is definitely in the wrong. But, what’s interesting is she did not fake her creds instead removed some of them! a very interesting problem.
      I think Director Go will be fine hiring her if she comes through proper channel. She is just a rule-follower. I do agree that she should have brought this up in the executive meeting and made a collective decision, since the hiring was also done by 3 people.
      Dan-Yi needs to find a way to apply for a different position in the same company.
      Firstly, an apology is due. Given that she has formed personal connections with some people they would feel upset.

      2
      2

        I do agree Go should have brought it up in the executive meeting. As you say, it should be a collective decision.

        But is it “wrong”? I really struggle to think it so. She was on the verge of homelessness and had attended 50+ interviews while following the rules. She has a daughter to support as well as herself. She was very much between a rock and a hard place. I just can’t fault her for the choice she made within a system that is so unfair and messed up.

        Maybe some apologies, to be sure.

        2
        2

          See, and this is where the dilemma for me lies. I 100% get why Dani did what she did. I would probably do the same myself in her position. But the problem is, it was always going to bite her in the end. (But if I recall, she also basically planned to take this temporary position as a jumping off point to try to apply for other, similar ones.)

          The thing is, no matter how good the motivation for the lie, it always hurts the people who have been lied to. I get it. I get why she did it. The system is shitty and horrible to women like her. But she lied. It’s a rock and a hard place for sure. But that’s also why I think it should be dealt with properly and not just shoved off onto Eun-ho by Dir. Go. Just firing Dani doesn’t prevent this from happening again. Dealing with the “why” can help. It can help change practices, it can help change Dani’s situation.

          3
          2

            Yup, it was always going to bite her. Unfortunately. I do not personally think I would be hurt at all. if I learned about a colleague underplaying their qualifications. I would be sorry they had been put in that position. I would advocate for my organisation to examine its hiring practices so people like them would not be excluded in future. I wouldn’t take it personally. That said, I can see that others could take umbrage and that would cause unnecessary discord. That is why I think a collective approach would make more sense or, given the top-down nature of most companies, telling Dan-I that her contract will not be renewed or extended because of her misrepresentation.

            I don’t think lies catch up with everyone, tbh. I think people with more social capital are able to get away with more lies than others. It is always the people with the least power and influence for whom rules are most stringently enforced. Of course in dramaland they do need to catch up with everyone for drama purposes!

            I too wouldn’t take her lies personally. But having worked in a very petty professional work-environment in the past there are always people who would. And I do think there are better ways to handle this. Not renewing her contract and also reexamining their hiring practices is one way to go about it. Or allowing her to re-apply after a year. There are lots of solutions, and it should be a collective decision.

          Yes, I understand all your valid points about the biases and prejudices of the society (more so a case for women in workplace), but it is still wrong.
          Personally, I get it. I am completely on Dan-Yi’s side. She did something without any ill-intent.

          In this new role (unrelated to her creds) she wants to grow within the company and has been actively doing so. Now, she is aspiring to become someone and this is where the conflict arises. Given that your name appears on legal documents – contracts/copyrighting etc, your company will want to screen you differently/mode diligently to hire you for that position.
          If I remember right, in the latest episode they do mention that there is no way a contract employee can become a regular employee via transfer. They HAVE to reapply for a job.
          I do question the termination of contract, but I don’t think it will be an issue for Dan-Yi to reapply for a marketing position.

          p.s. Personally, I took a one year sabbatical and had a hard time getting back into the workforce. With 13 years experience on my resume some people treated me like crap. It was a horrible experience. Some recruiters even encouraged me to fake some experience so there is no gap in my experience. I had to fight hard to keep my sanity, integrity, not take a pay cut etc. Eventually I did find the right job after 6 months!! Thank goodness, I didn’t have to worry about putting a roof on my head!

            Geez, I am so sorry you had to go through that. It is utter bullshit that any gap in one’s CV should cancel out all the good work and skills one has. Well done on getting a job that met your needs!

        I don’t think that hiring her through the proper channels would work, though. Dani, by lying, has betrayed the trust of her co-workers. Even if they like her, asking them to trust her again because she’s a good person with good motives is asking a lot. Trust needs to be earned, and while Dani is a great worker it’s not enough to me.

        However, that doesn’t make her irredeemable. I just think that she needs to make clear why she did what she did, and apologize. She needs to also start fresh somewhere else. Trust lost is not always regained, and even if she regains some of her co-workers’ trust, there will still be those who resent her for what she did. If she got a job through the proper channels or if she’s promoted from within they’ll cite favoritism, epescially if they find out her relationship with Eun-ho (either pre- or post-romance). If she stays on, she’s getting away with lying without punishment. Lies always catch up to us, and they always hurt the person who lied the most. For all I understand and sympathize with Dani, there was no good way for this to end.

        2

          I see her relationship with Eun-Ho a bigger problem in her continuing to work here than her rebuilding trust with employees.
          I am all for Dan-Yi getting back on her two feet and finding a stable job.
          I don’t know how this will resolve.
          I will be perfectly fine if the head-hunter helps her with a different position and she moves on with her life.
          But since it’s a drama, am guessing the solution may not be realistic!

            Agreed that her relationship with Eun-ho is the bigger problem. But I’m ignoring that for now because it’s not a factor (yet).

            I mean, I assume Dani will be fine in the end — it’s a drama after all — but also, if she’s fired quietly enough, she may still be able to use this job as a jumping off point to start looking for another one. Hae-rin, Eun-ho, Manager Seo, and others I’m sure would vouch for her work ethic.

      Dir Ko’s friend being a bitch makes perfect sense. Explains why they are friends. Ko didn’t like DanI doing anything other than menial tasks, especially if she was successful with it, even if DanI was given permission to do so. Ko looked for every opportunity to keep DanI in her “place”. I have said from the beginning that Ko is jealous and petty but now I will add bitter. Ko and her friend take issue with DanI quitting work to be a mother and wife then wanting to come back to work. They are part of the problem women like Seo are having. Seo is trying to have it all but has to lie when her kid gets sick or has a family emergency.

      While we’re at it, since lies get you fired, are they going to fire Seo for lying about her absences from work?

      2
      2

        THIS.

        This is why I think that they set it up like this. So Seo will go to bat for Dani. Because she gets it. She’s the one who’s both Dir. Go and Dani. She has both sets of experience and she understands both women’s point of view.

        Are they bitter because a smart woman chose marriage over career? I guess I don’t understand where this resentment comes from.
        They both are successful and DanYi is in no way a threat to Dir Ko’s position.
        Ko’s friend seemed to take offence that DanYi is trying to enter workplace at the same level as she left. And she put her in her place saying the rest of them have earned their position. But if DanYi is willing to start from scratch, then what would be their problem.

          Maybe because Dani is taking away from a younger person who will stay in that position longer, who will spend more time with the company, who they can train from scratch? I think any resentment they have has nothing to do with their view of her life and everything to do with the fact that they see her as presumptuous in thinking she can pick up again where so many others who are younger struggle (even if they’re wrong in this presumption).

          I don’t think they see the time she took off as her being lazy, but it’s more a “stay in your lane” type thing. You chose that life, you stick to your choices. I chose this one, you don’t get to have both. They probably feel like they worked their asses off for years. To suddenly have a subordinate their age is awkward to say the least.

            At some point aren’t you going to have a subordinate your age? Everyone doesn’t get promoted at the same time if at all. Seo is Ko’s subordinate. EunHo has been there longer than anyone and he is her subordinate.

          I don’t understand it either. It seems to be a little bit of regret. Now that we know Ko is faker than a $3 bill, it explains a lot. She says that she doesn’t need a man or family but look at her life outside of work. If she is so proud of her choices then why lie to the ex?

          Her friend is (for lack of a better word) a hater. She knew DanI’s accomplishments and told Ko that DanI was really something when she was working. So why not hire DanI then? Not in a top position but DanI had enough on her resume to give her a chance. I think it’s because she was afraid of DanI learning and surpassing her.

          All I see is that both Ko and her friend are mad that DanI is trying to have it all and for some reason, it rubs them the wrong way.

I am baffled by how much I like this drama. I have, without exception, hated all Lee Jong-suk dramas to date. Maybe it is the Lee Na-young factor? She is adorbz & their chemistry is 🔥.

    Apart from 30 But 17 which I am already watching, which of the others would you recommend for pick up?

      I think Familiar Wife and Ghost Detective. FW is probably elevated by the strength of its cast, but I have been really enjoying the performances and the characters’ arcs. GD is giving me some much needed creepiness, and so far the characters seem smart and capable, and the ghosts are sinister. It is early days, I know.

      100DH is too early to tell, really. GB is a recommend for hate-viewing only.

I’m enjoying this tale of workplace terrorism/social justice more than expected.
