Beanie level: Errand boy

What if Dan-oh has to die in Secret to get back to her rightful place in Flower? What if that’s exactly what happened to Haru?

    Did anyone read The Magician’s Nephew? What if the black hole can take you to a place like the wood between the worlds? And you can fall into different manwha worlds?

What if Joker left DB alone all those years because she was miserable, and now he’s angry that she’s asserting herself and finding happiness?

    What we know about Joker so far:
    1. He’s killed seemingly random people.
    2. He lives in the neighborhood.
    3. He’s a regular at Camellia.
    4. He used to wear black sneakers.
    5. His murders are connected with fires.
    6. Someone knows about him and set off the sprinklers last time.
    7. He’s connected with a lighter and paint thinner.
    8. He has access to that abandoned building.
    9. He apparently is poisoning the neighborhood cats. If he’s the poisoner then HM was sitting with him in the alley. She could give him away to YS.

    HS is so obviously a candidate that I’m still leaning toward his mysterious father.

Did you notice how everyone was using Joker’s line today? It felt like the writer was messing with us.

Peeked at the raw of Extraordinary You. Excited to find out more about Haru. Love the way he’s not shaken by typhoon Kyung. Can’t wait to find out why Fairy is seething and what he said to Haru.

I really did go back and rewatch all four eps of Extraordinary You for clues. Observations:

Dried Squid Fairy is mostly smug. He only dropped his smug attitude three times. First, when he saw Haru from the window. Second, when Dan Oh named Haru. Third, when he found Haru’s drawings in the library.

Haru was Dan Oh’s protector from early in the story, but it seemed like he was moving in a dream until he read the writing on Dan Oh’s rock. Was he trapped inside his nameless character? After that scene, he seemed to come to life. He found the pool in the woods, then he found Dan Oh and brought her there. (So he knew the storyboard ahead of time, too, because he knew where she would be.) He seemed to have a reason to think she would remember that place. The next day, he seemed startled when she said the palace was familiar and she must have been a princess in a past life. Then he knew the path to the house where no one else went. And the flower pendant burned his hand. Somehow he’s connecting the flower keychain with the flower pendant, even though the flower is different. It seems like Dan Oh is teaching Haru, but Haru actually knows much more than Dan-Oh. He knows how this manwha works, but he also knows about their shared past and how they are connected before they got to this manwha. Whatever the name of that red flower is, I bet that was the name of the manwha they came from before they arrived in this one.

The fact that Dan-Oh’s actions could make her past with her mother change and cause the flower garden to disappear suggests to me that it was all scripted, not real. That was not her real life. If she dies in this manwha, I think Haru may take her through the black hole to another manwha world. I think they came that way, and they can move on that way. He won’t be missed in this world, and she won’t either once her character dies.

Kyung is not aware yet, but I think he is confused and upset by the role he has to play and the words he has to say vs. his real feelings for Dan Oh, which came out a little the morning after the night trek.

Secret, the title – there are so many secrets. Dried Squid Fairy is keeping secrets. Haru knows secrets. Nam Ju told Ju Da what he wished for was a secret. I think the real secret is that their romance and their manwha is actually the backdrop, not the main event.

So much to think about after only four eps. I can’t wait to see what will happen this week.

I just had this thought about Dan-o and Haru: his scar looks like it could have been from a sword, and if she really was a princess in another life, and he saved her from danger…

    …he could have taken her through one of those black holes to this manwha, where she could hide out as a minor character and he would be more or less invisible. Maybe Dried Squid Fairy is upset because if they start to upset the plot of this manwha, not only will this manwha world be turned upside down, but they could attract the attention of the bad guys from their previous world, who could also use the black hole to find them.

    Ack! Reading all these theories are so much fun. Hope we get a really good plot twist. Waiting for Wednesday feels incredibly long.

    I would have to go back and check the wall of Dan Oh’s portraits and see if there’s anything there to hint that they may be connected in the past? Or maybe they are just portraits of her in Secret?

    Historical version of Secret manhwa with Dan Oh and Haru as leads and a love triangle with Dried Squid Fairy?

Way to go, Haru!!! I hope that well-timed punch will take the story in a different direction. Will Kyung remember? Will he wake up, too?

Finally watching the last episode of Be Melodramatic, and I cannot believe what I am hearing as Ms. Writer and Mr. Producer are leaving the tent bar. NOT THAT SONG! Not a good reference, show.

Yay for a good ending, Rookie Historian! So happy about how everyone ended up.

    Spoilers ahead —

    I found the bloody rebellion at the beginning hard to watch, so I was really glad that the restoration took place without any visible bloodshed. I’m glad to know the circumstances that compelled big brother Goo to betray Soraewon. I’m glad the Second Councillor met his end offscreen. I’m glad the king appeared to have retired, and that the Crown Prince got to be king after all. I’m glad Dowon/Yi Rim and Hae-Ryung worked out an arrangement that suits them both, even if I’m skeptical it would have been accepted in their time. I’m glad SH found her place as a teacher. (And did the Crown Princess also get free of her marriage?) Finally, YAY for the historians, truth won out in the end!

      Jae kyung was so young and was literally given the choice of doing that or watching his friend did. I mean , there was not a good option either way and to have that eat at you for 20 years on top of being a kid raising a kid.

      Did the King retire? I thought he met the same fate as Second Chancellor Min. I just can’t see the Queen keeping him alive.

      Yes, the Crown Princess did get her divorce. She mentioned it while saying she was tired of wearing mourning clothes.

      I am so glad that this series did not have couples getting together for the sake of it. The show in the end was not about that.

    Especially happy to walk away from this drama with warm feelings, not frustrated at aimless plot lines or useless characters or things that should have happened but didn’t or things that happened but shouldn’t have. Not that this show didn’t have its failings, but what it did right just drowned them all out.

      I do have a complaint though. 40 episodes and we only got Seol-guem and Rim’s court together for one a 2 minute scene.

      Criminal. Criminal.

    the shot between Haeryung and Rim while talking about Ho Dam and Yeongan tho, that gave me chills because of the implication that they lived on through their kids.

    Almost. Almost. If only Prince YiRim’s (the ML) character had more depth, was written & acted better. But yes compared to i dont wanna listen to your disharmonious song, this is awesome.

Is the directing? Script? I feel like Let Me Hear Your Song is stumbling along with lead shoes. I\’m hoping Prof. Song will turn out to be the chief villain, just for a plot twist. Please, anything!

    While watching an episode and getting bored, I rewrote the story into my mind, where YY’s doctor cousin is the biiig bad and evil chief of all the situation (maybe helped by mother and father? I have to think about it…)

      The big bad villain implanting post hypnotic suggestions and false memories? This is perfectly possible in a kdrama since there is the One hospital with the One therapist, so it’s inevitable that the one doctor would see everyone of importance… woooo

        I was hoping Yi-young and her cousin are the baddies while Yoon and Joo-wan will solve the case and become best buds but this show keeps getting dumb and I’m still watching it.

          I actually thought for a moment that the show was headed toward that weird twist, that YY would turn out to have been playing the innocent all this time. But no, I’m afraid this is just a straight road with all the scenery laid out in front of us, and it’s just a matter of how slowly we’re going to creep toward it. In two hours this week, I think we got two big revelations: 1) YY never dated his brother (so he can love her without any guilt) and 2) YY did plunge the knife into Ian’s body, but it was totally not her fault (though why was she running around with it open like that????? just an accident waiting to happen. Who thinks up this stuff, anyway???) Also two small revelations: a) it was Ian’s mother’s lawyer who handled his death (did she have something to hide??), and b) all the professors and only the professors got the secret pen (back to my wishful thinking about Prof. Song being a villain).

          Also, I understand that YY running from Prof. Kang was the writer’s way of putting her in harm’s way, so she would face the headlights of the oncoming car and remember what happened that night. But seriously, could she have done anything more foolish than run away? Why not sit there and call Yoon to come pick her up??? She reminded me of a panicked rabbit.

            The show could give us a reveal in a pretty smart and creative way but Yi-young is just being plain dumb all this time. I loved this show but it’s going downhill since last week…

            I, too, originally thought this drama would be a wonderful noir tale with our heroine as a femme fatale playing the innocent victim, spinning her web of deceit to trap her next victims…but as you said, it seems head down the straight and narrow. No diabolical twists.

            This could have been a really cool cult favorite!

So is it just me, or does anyone else have the feeling that the I-knew-you-at-a-traumatic-moment-when-we-were-children trope is about to surface in Rookie Historian GHR?

    A. She has a backstory and maybe her parents aren’t who she thinks they were. B. He has a backstory and it sounds like his father isn’t who he thinks it is. C. Something happened 20 years ago that probably affected them both, and it’s related to the story of Ho-dam (who, for whatever reason, is showing up in the prince’s dreams). D. Hmmmm

    I was thinking the same thing. Don’t touch her! If she was afraid the daughter might be a carrier, then after holding the mom’s hands, wouldn’t she be as well?
    okay, so little bit of lost logic in this plot-hole here….

      Several scenes involving a knife, someone dissipates, someone is murdered, someone is devastated. No matter how they are gonna to wind this up — alternate universe? — it can’t compensate for this.

        I have this sinking feeling that there really will be an alternate universe where all the dissipated angels and their lovers go for a second chance. We’ll get to see all our angel friends not only reunited and happy but admitting that God had their best interest at heart all along. And Dan and YS will grow old together.

          Yikes! 🙈🙈 reading this is already a torture to my brain. I loathe this writer so much. Never again will I fall into her trap. Not even actors she will cast ever make me watch her dramas. And to think I subscribed to Kocowa just for this drama.

          Hate alternate universe plots the most! This is why I’m not a fan of marvel movies. Like in an alternate universe, this all didn’t happen and the emotions and thoughts you’ve put into the plot that just unfolded are gone wasted cuz this is the alternate universe! 😑

Angel’s Last Mission – Do I even want to watch next week? I’m so frustrated with your split personality. Don’t you know that what you do best is put Dan and YS together in comic conflicts and subtly sweet romantic moments? So why do you keep interrupting these moments with death and destruction plots that don’t even make sense? How is it that suddenly YS can’t escape death, or that an “archangel” is spouting nonsense about destiny? Or that Dan can be 100% there when it matters, but transparent the morning after? How is it that Dan, who couldn’t even lie, is now fine with killing someone? Even though he’s still an angel? And he just has to rush off to do this on his wedding morning? In a black suit? (Subtle contrast there to his original white outfit….) Can’t you show a little more creativity than that? Arrgggh!

      It’s a cliffhanger. He said he was ready and willing, and we left him marching toward the villain to do the dirty deed.
