Beanie level: Wrongly accused fugitive

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

Gu Hae-ryung, why are you letting that woman with smallpox take your hands?????? Forget the little girl, you are going to be the smallpox carrier, #!*#@#*!!!!!

    That was so stupid. They should have kept their masks on and kept distance.

    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….

#AngelsLastMission – peeked at the raw. That’s the end for me. Oh, what you could have been if you stuck to what you were good at. But I’m not going to waste any more time on you. Sad.

      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!

    Wait a minute? Dan killed someone? I dropped it back in ep 10 but I am VERY interested to know more about this piece of info 😀

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

I’ll be waiting for Kim Young Kwang’s next drama. I don’t care what genre, except not horror please. So looking forward to see what he can do with his next character.

Can’t decide whether Do Min Ik is cuter when he is pouting or when he has a goofy, happy grin. Thank you, show, for giving us so many chances to ponder that question today.

Angel’s Last Mission Ep. 10 — Let’s just think about this a minute.

Her dad dies.
Her mom dies.
She has a terrible “accident” and is blinded.
Her guardian dies in a fatal “accident”, and she nearly dies too.
The guy who worked in lighting in her theater is found in the river.
And then she’s supposed to jump off a rooftop….

And no one would figure out that there’s a pattern here? Come on, evil cousin. This is just a little too heavy-handed for winning your sister the lead in the show, and too blatant for you to get away with murder again. Kinda seems like you’re in the wrong drama.

“You don’t have any right to meddle with my feelings.” YES!!! Way to go, YS!!!!

Just have to rant about JKW in this scene from Angel’s Last Mission:

JKW: Your sadness over Kim Dan is nothing special. I’ve been sad, too. You can’t do anything with sadness.
YS: It must be your ballerina friend who was laid to rest at the temple….
JKW: End of conversation.

Oh, yeah, you can be all over her love life, but she can’t even touch the memory of yours. So glad she sees through you, you arrogant jerk.

Re Angel’s Last Mission: What if Dan’s mission (love) was to experience love because he had none in his short life? Not romantic feelings. Real self-sacrificing love. Isn’t that what’s happening?

    I would love that! It doesn’t matter if there’s no romance although Dan and YS are cute together.

    It would have been more interesting if they show what is the true meaning of love. Love doesn’t need to be romantic.

      Correctumundo @outofthisworld and @lindag!
      In my book to love another person is to:
      respect their person-hood
      period.

      We don’t even have to like them – but give them the respect as another human being.

      granted this is hard to do with serial murderers, rapists, drug peddlers, and idiot treasonous presidents – but you get my drift

      First HPL makes me go pick up the Four Loves by C S Lewis to compare Romantic Love to fangirling, then this comes along and has the perfect set up to show Agape but God (lol) only knows if they will or not. *Eyeroll* *do you know how many dramas actually deal with this kind of love?* *Like none* *except for Lookout and they only brushed the surface of that*

I was surprised at the end of today’s Angel’s Last Mission to see it was ep. 7. From the ending, I thought it must be ep. 13 or so. Poor YS, just when life was looking up, noble idiocy kicked in.

    This drama is knocking me off my feet because we’re getting our tropes MUCH earlier than usual

    It feels great but I’m worried at the same time…

Peeked at raw of #AngelsLastMission. Looks like we\’re in for a whole \’nother discussion of the theology of this dramaverse. If only it didn\’t pose as Christian. If only it didn\’t tear people apart.

    It’s supposed to be Christian?? I assumed it was like a mix of multiple religions.

    But God and angels are all a part of the Christian theology and you sort of set yourself up for it from the get-go if you choose to watch a drama with the word ‘angel’ in the title

      Churches and priests with black outfits and white collars are Christian too, but the god of this dramaverse is not Christian. If you want to invent your own god, go right ahead, all’s fair in dramaland. But don’t invent your own god and plant him in a Christian church.

      It’s similar to saying your sageuk is about a well-known historical figure, using his name and his palace and so on, but scripting him as a character that has very little in common culturally or personally with that historical character. Why not just invent someone? Why borrow a real person’s name?

Also, didn\’t it look like little Dan was running from someone — probably the person who was beating him — when he slipped and fell and drowned? So sad.

    It’s no wonder that he was reunited with YS. She was the one person who showed him beauty in life, and on the other hand, he was the one person who made dancing meaningful for her again. I really want him to remember who he was in life, even if it’s painful. And I think he has to know how painful life can be before he can ask to be human again.

Also, my theory on Ji Kang Woo — he was punished not because he fell in love with a human, but because he decided for himself what to do about that. He took without asking, without a blessing.

    I am on this theory train.

    Good call.

    He comes off as a really odd angel tbrh. Even back then he didn’t seem to have a lot of patience and understanding with humans. Depression and frustration are what makes you human, but this angel would get mad back at human when they were at their low points already. Drilling more into them to just give up (mentioning to this artist that it was his 40th something try). He didn’t provide light and guidance to them as an angel would. And then he fell in love just like that and you were right we didn’t see him (at least not yet) asked for guidance with an archangel (like how Dan consults Hu) or asked for a blessing.

Timing is everything! I laughed so hard! JKW, interrupted in his delusion!

This perfect comic timing is one reason why I’m sure that Angel’s Last Mission won’t end in tragedy.

Third, I love the way Hoo said, \”And what do you think happened to an angel that loved a human more than the Deity?\” Um, he got to live as a human with free will and had to deal with tragedy?

    I love it because on the one hand he’s trying to discourage Dan from loving YS, and on the other hand, he’s really leaving the door open for him, without Dan knowing that.

    This gives me so much hope that Dan might live as human and be with Yeon Seo! I’m sure they’ll find a way to circumvent that tragedy. *crosses fingers*

    I’m glad that this episode showed Kang Woo wasn’t as evil as I thought he was. He was temperamental even in his previous life as an angel (which strikes me as really odd) but at the moment, it looks like the only crime he gravely committed was to fall in love with a human.

    If that was a “City of Angels” scenario, he did not get very long with his lady love. Did you notice that his love’s dress in the church scene looked (to my eyes anyway) like the dress she died in?

    0
    1

      Did not notice, but I think you’re right. Did you check JKW’s outfit too?

      Just wondering — Dan is always protecting YS. But maybe JKW stopped being able to protect his wife the moment he renounced being an angel — and the result was that she died. As an angel he might have been able to protect her, but he chose to be with her instead.

The second thing makes me a little sad. We got answers to some big questions. But no bantering, no bickering, no smiles, just the painful fallout from that kiss.
