Beanie level: Wrongly accused fugitive

“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.

    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.

The first thing that bugs me is while YS gets tucked in with a warm blanket and told never to get wet or sick or be alone, NN is left alone in the rain. Why is she surrounded by heartless people?

    Well, her parents deliberately kept YS blind for 3 years and the tried to kill her and take all her wealth … they don’t sound like nice people? And the kind of people that cluster around those kinds of people aren’t likely to be the soft and cuddly types.

      Actually I think her dad is evil only by omission — he’s too weak to stand up and do the right thing.

      It’s the contrast that’s disheartening. NN is such a sweet person, she deserves better.

            His smile looked genuine in 5ge scene? There are people who will happily help someone else do the dirty deed while claiming to have clean hands. Of course, I could be a bit too cynical…

Remember I said that I thought ballet director Ji Kang-woo might not be Yeon-soo\’s future love, and might end up with Ni-na instead? After last night\’s restaurant scene, I feel even more sure.

    I love that they are opposites: she is an innocent in a ruthless family, and has very little self-confidence or self-worth. He seems like a man on a mission that involves revenge, and very sure of himself. I hope he will help her to love herself — woah, parallel mission to Dan’s! And she will help him to let go of his bitterness.

Willing suspension of disbelief. That\’s the phrase that comes to mind for Secret Life of My Secretary. I really like the main characters, so I\’m being super patient with the ridiculous plot.

      Depends what you are looking for. If you are content to see first and second lead couples being cute together, you’ll be fine. If you are going to pull your hair out because the scenes between secretary and boss are so unrealistic, or because it’s just impossible that Min Ik hasn’t figured it out by now, or because it’s also beyond belief that little sister is working for Veronica park, or even because we have a minion willing to kill in this otherwise fluffy drama, better save yourself some grief.

I watched the first ep of One Spring Night while waiting for HPL to be subbed. I get the realism of a woman living a comfortable but unsatisfying life. But it doesn’t make me want to watch more.

    Also, the fact that JHI’s pharmacist is the only one with any spark — though not much of a spark — does kind of echo Pretty Noona, where his character was the one with 75% of the passion and 100% of the commitment. Not encouraging.

So far I have just one little quibble with Her Private Life: Deok Mi\’s pantsuits. Can\’t she ever wear anything but solid color pantsuits (and ninja gear)?

    I’m not watching this, but I feel like the stylist was trying to keep with the professional look for her, but at the same time, try to differentiate her look for this drama from her look on “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?” where in that drama, she always seemed to be wearing pencil skirts in solid colors

    I covet the fuchsia pantsuit. The details of them have been interesting.

    I like her pantsuits. She has very clearly defined styles for the different compartments of her life. The pantsuits (and I get why you don’t like them) are a uniform of sort to insure that she is taken seriously at work. In her position she has to deal with all sorts of people in many different class/economic/ages/professions/etc. and wearing these suits identify her as someone who takes her work very seriously, and should not be dismissed. Additionally, while they are not unfeminine, they also act somewhat as a shield against unwanted sexual attention. Again, something that I bet is a problem in the business. They also clearly differentiate her from Director Eom’s amazingly wack-a-doodle-style.

    Deok-mi looked great in her blue dress! Thank you for a change from the pantsuit-of-the-day!

    Seems like I wasn’t the only one with this issue, since her wardrobe seems to have changed up quite a bit. (Unless this change is somehow supposed to convey that her character is loosening up?) I can’t remember the last time she wore a pantsuit. She’s been looking so pretty in skirts and dresses.

Wait, when did that happen? I leveled up from I-don’t-remember-what to the Goblin’s underpants. And I noticed just as I was changing my banner to Biscuit Teacher Star Candy. It’s a Gong Yoo moment!
