Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

Lol, just watched Circle ep 2 for the second time and this PPL is too impressive not to admire! Pfffft, let it be known that Samsung Galaxy S8 will still be working perfectly in 2037! 😂

Well, Suspicious Partner just ruined me. I have to wait a week after that? And why are they breaking my heart already?! 😭I’m probably going to have to rewatch this scene all week to survive the pain!

Lol. Apparently Kim Sung-oh has made a ratings promise on behalf of the FMW cast: the leads will get married if they reach 30%! Just great. Now I won’t rest until we make it happen!

    I am still not sure about Circle, but I like the set up and the way the two worlds were presented even though it was a bit confusing.

Lol, just thought I\’d share the top-rated netizen comment for Suspicious Partner because it cracks me up so much:

1. [+3,496, -38] PD, female lead, viewers, everyone\’s fangirling over Ji Chang Wook

Like many, I’m having such a hard time wrapping my head around this new episodic format, lol. I try and I try and I. Just. Don’t. Understand.

Seriously side-eyeing broadcasters right now…

    Same. Ruler has a slightly better grasp of the split but suspicious partner’s have been fairly awkward. I love that they have to remind the audience to come back after the break. I wonder what the Korean audience thinks…

      I watched Suspicious Partner live this week and there weren’t even ads aired between the split episodes, unless the online version was miraculously different than what was aired in Korea. That’s why I’m even more perplexed by the choice right now. Does splitting the episodes somehow affect the ratings in a positive way? I don’t see how it could be enough to justify this.

      Yeah, you would think a rom-com would fit shorter episodes better, but there’s a breezy quality to Suspicious Partner that makes it suit the hour-long format, especially since it’s trying to balance romance, comedy and thriller elements. Ruler, on the other hand, has been making use of the short episodes to highlight its many dramatic moments in a pretty effective way. Still, I feel like the split hinders that sweeping quality I love to get from sageuks.

        Hrm, that is odd. It could be different since it is online, but I honestly have no idea how that works since I’ve never done it.

        The idea I think was that broadcasters have more time to air commercials. Before they just had the break between shows, but now they also have the time in the middle of the episode. They also may be able to charge more during that commercial break because the idea is that the viewers are more likely to stick around and actually watch the commercials instead of changing the channel since the other half of the show they are currently watching will come back in a few minutes.

        Honestly, I’m not sure how the ratings are going to play into this whole situation. The importance of ratings is that the higher the ratings the more money broadcasters can demand for commercials to be aired around that drama. If the two halves are different ratings, I’m not sure what that proves. Ideally, the ratings would be about the same because then people are sticking it through the commercials and people aren’t just tuning in after the commercials or dropping it because of commercials.

        However, they should at least treat the halves at one and not this silly “40” episodes of 30 minutes each to represent a storyline obviously built for an hour long episode.

This couple destroyed me and then put me back together again! I’m sad to see them go, but I’m honestly mostly happy that I don’t have to live in constant fear of their demise now 😀

    Yes! That was one awesome soundtrack! I loved the first episode so much that I actually wanted to watch its second episode before watching liar final episode and felt a little guilty about it.

      Haha, luckily, I saved myself from that dilemma by saving both episodes for after 😉 I’m sure I would have been tempted also!

    Lol this is cute. I haven’t watched the drama yet but I’m looking forward to it since it seems like a surprise hit here on DB. I also have the same smart phone as this person here. I’m finally one with my K-drama people now.
