Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

What???? Am I reading this correctly?

    I don’t think that’s correct.

    I think it makes sense. The budget was poured into building that expensive set to be reused for more than just 18 episodes.
    Before the show aired there were articles on filming season 2 but I’m not sure if they are going ahead with it or not.

      Then they should have used some of that money for an editor. I fear that this will end with nothing resolved.

        LOL! you said it right @ndlessjoie!!!
        a good edit would make a helluva difference.

        Most of k-drama and k-movies miss good editing. It’s made with hot needle and because of luck in materials and time they have poor editing. Pity!

      Now that I think about it. I shouldn’t have been surprised at all. I mean the writers are known for 50+ episodes, except for Tree, so I should have known it all along.

      But I think the fact that the studio and Netflix didn’t officially announced it prior to broadcasting was a major booboo. What’s with the secrecy? And why break season 1 in 3 parts? Their marketing for this drama also sucked. Promoting this as the next Game of Thrones was ridiculous, but I would say Netflix had a say in that as Netflix is looking for the next Game of Thrones.

    54? EPISODES? I dunno if I can shitpost 54 episodes of this thing. But also the pacing of it doesn’t fit a 54 episode show. It doesn’t fit a 18 episode one either but it’s not like this thing knows what it’s doing.
    Guess we’ll find out if it’s ever coming back…

I\’m not sure if Viki has license for it, even though Soompi heavily promoted it.

Love Alarm.

Love it. Everything is working perfectly in the first 4 episodes I binged. I love dramas with limited dialogues as it makes me savor the performances better. And this drama has it

    One particular point. Kim (of Netflix Korea) “denied that Asian audiences were being overwhelmed by the multitude of available choices.”. He shouldn’t have denied it. I think there is oversaturation sometimes of dramas. I can’t keep up. There’s so many of them, yet so very few are noteworthy. It’s getting hard finding a drama that can be in my top 10.

      Cultures can be so vastly different, it’s mind blowing. Americans always clamor for more choices. Lol.

I follow this Korean account in IG. And he posted a story with Subway. Don’t know what the captions says. But it’s PPL to me.😁

    Yes it was me! You got a lot of them right! I thought that iu and Kim tae ri would not be nominated for best actress because of what happened at previous ceremonies but it seems like you were right! That category is going to be really interesting!

Ugghh, Lee Jong Hyun. Roy Kim, you\’re next.

Is it possible, they\’re simply looking for porn files? That they need to release their frustrations. And the only way to do that is by watching videos. 1. They cannot date. 2. Porn is not available in the country.

They are still wrong no matter what. But I\’m asking, is it possible? … And I can already tell, this is not just happening in JJY group of friends. This is a systemic issue of male idols in Kpop industry. All those grinding on stage has to be released somehow. Specially, if they cannot find dates.

    No. It’s not them looking for porn files. It’s clear from the chats that they’re having tons of sex.

    Roy Kim is the closest friend of JJY. I’m curious why Zico and Roy Kim not mentioned in any news.
    Honestly I’m so nervous now, my heart beating so hard, I’m worry with Chanyeol, he is friend with Lee Jong Hyun and Zico.

      I trust SM πŸ™‚ they really really really don’t give space or freedom to their artists.. who knew one could be thankful for their barbaric treatments in times like these..

      they reared good kids or atleast forced them to be good

        Umm honestly idk when PYC started raping women but wasn’t he originally a part of TVXQ which is in SM? There are rotten fruits everywhere and in all honesty, they are more nourished in strict environments. As far as I know, YG never even let girl trainees/idols have dinner at the same time as boy trainees/idols.

        3
        3

          that’s why either SM let him go.. or he started after leaving YC
          PS: I was being sarcastic. But SM is the only one not linked till now. JYP had jihyo being mentioned a victim atleast

            Plus is that Twice’s jihyo? Is that confirm?

          For good reason YG didnt let the girls have dinner with the boys.. Look at his boys
          1. Sever – prostitution
          2. TOP – best friends with Kim Hyun Jung, was a group of 4 (including JYJ where 1 member turned out to be a rapist.. screw the fans who still believe in utopia and that if he is not charged he is good) – drugs and a lot of things are weird about his personality too..
          3. GD- drugs.. and who knows what not.. but he is more of a rockstar, getting addicted kind of a personality.. and not this trash prostitution bit (because he doesn’t need to do it.. he anyway rules.. so no need for more power)
          4. Seungri – Hello!

          i won’t trust YG himself. He runs so many clubs and then the whole story behind how he married his current wife

          good that a lot of artists left this year

            Yes that’s exactly what I meant by in strict environemnts such things or just even rebellious behavior is nourished more. I personally never really read an article about YG but whenever i have read comments on sites, people do consider him shady. But I still can’t find anything on Jihyo though. The reporter did say that no idols were victims but some chats say otherwise.

          PYC scandal started after JYJ successes and he is in the peak career of his acting. many idols are demanding to sue and leave SM because of long contract and financial problems. But this problem is not only owned by SM.

          0
          0

        Yes, this thought really keep me on the light. I know many people bash SM for their treatment for idol. I remember that even they can’t have cellular in the beginning of debut.

      unless one on one chat evidence comes up, those will not be involved. The singers from the chat room have already been ousted and as it turns out the world was right in its speculation as to who Mr.Choi , Mr. Lee, and Mr. Young were.

      Mr. Yoo is also husband of some celeb.

      The evidence is 8 months of texting in 2015. Now, if Zico became friends later and police manages to get JJY’s recent phone πŸ™‚ then we would have more names being announced.

      But Roy Kim is going to get the brunt of this, exposed or not!

        He is Park Han Byul’s husband. And honestly I feel bad that she ia being urged to leave her show. She may not know any of this either and in that case, she is cheated. But her husband was also involved in Seungri’s business so it is hard to believe that she had no idea at all.

          I mean wasn’t she Seven’s girlfriend who is another one from YG to have got ousted on prostitution charges while in military!
          she sure knows how to pick the guys.. and YG must really be doing something really wrong with all his people..

    From everything that’s publicly known about this scandal so far, I don’t think anyone involved deserves the benefit of the doubt.

    These are idols we’re talking about. I’m sure there’s no shortage of people who want to date them, and as someone said above, they’re clearly having tons of sex. This isn’t about porn.
    It’s about them objectifying women to the highest degree, abusing them, and abusing the power they have as celebrities.

      I normally go to viki.com/coming soon to see new shows.

      I don’t think they have a separate list of what’s coming or made a news article via Soompi of dramas they are bringing in.

      They have previously announced that they are going to carry Sky Castle.

          I’ve been using mainly those ways lately… 🙈 For some reason, Viki sometimes has parts of the episode in worse quality and the uncertainty is even worse than watching the whole episode in lower, but stable quality… 😅

The deer hunting scene on The Crowned Clown. 👏👏👏👏 That was thrilling. That was fun to watch. … I don\’t know why I am in awe of the running when it seems like it occurs regularly in a sageuk.

      Those long legged trees helped a lot. They added to the suspense. … If the PD wanted to, I’m sure she can make it romantic if clown and King were just walkin through them.

      It’s not silly. I want to stay there as well. And yes they better keep the garden.
