        Ahh yes of course, Gu Yanzhen does not forget for sure!!!

        IMO, the main reason he deliberately got the lowest score was so she wasn’t alone repeating the exam. He knew there was something wrong with her all throughout the field exam and wouldn’t pass.💔 So he failed with her lol.

      I love that he didn’t react shocked or troubled or wanting to blackmail her etc. He just enjoyed this hijinks. it was exactly what one would expect from him.

      Her bartender friend clearly is not good with lies!! I was like ‘honey stop talking’!!

        Hahahah! Yep, it’s amazing too how he could put two and two together. He was doubting his eyes at first when he first met her as a girl and even had to ask his butler to look into her. But he quickly believed that she was the same person and didn’t even look aghast at the fact that a woman made it into the military academy. Then again, this is Gu Yanzhen, he couldn’t really care less about people pretty much! Episode 7 is when I was full blown swooned by him. Okay shutting up now 🤐🤐🤐🤐🤐🤐 will talk about it once you’re there.

        I also like how gullible Huang Song is and him trying to make sense out of the siblings story is making Yanzhen crack up more.

        Lololol at Manting getting sober after all this relatives talk. The convo was enough to make her sober up😂

      I think I got a bit invested only after the cave/tortoise scene. And then it builds up from there. I think most oF my favorite episodes were after 30.

        Exactly the same for me. It was around the turtle cave when I finally started getting addicted, and then around 20 when I got obsessed. But some of my favorite scenes were the ones that took place in the present timeline (though I did love the episode that lead up to his death, even if it was heartbreaking, it was all very well done).

    I’m so glad you loved it! It’s definitely a drama that doesn’t let you go. Gives you such deep feels and emotions. I had to rewatch the last 5 minutes about 6x in a row because it impacted me emotionally so strongly. Definitely my favorite drama ever.

      Agree, that last few minutes is everything. In that one gaze Wei Wuxian declared his fierce love, longing, contentment for Lan Zhan.

Untamed, Ep 46. Gutted.

I don\’t think words can do justice to this whole sequence. Even though this was truth that was told to Jiang Cheng, this entire sequence was about Lan Zhan realising the truth and going through the emotions.

That moment when Jiang Cheng pulls out WWX\’s sword, the disbelief, then the realisation what happened, and overwhelmed with what Wei Wuxian had done, feeling his pain, a single drop of tear falls.

DF607-B57-1-A68-40-FD-8-A48-AAD303-E4-E7-D5

As he hears the story, the tears wont stop. And then realising everything that has happened to Wei Wuxian, his anger comes out. But he pauses, for he knows, he has to care for Wei Wuxian.

E6-EE9-A45-5-CA5-48-A7-8-A4-F-3-F06-A0693-C6-D

He takes him away, holds him tenderly, worried for him. And then he asks \’Was it painful\’? knowing very well what the truth would be. He feels Wei Wuxian\’s pain. Realising what he had done/said not knowing the truth fills him with pain. And then he holds him tenderly with nothing but love in his heart and soul.

Exhausted to watch the dramas am watching, I randomly played a drama called ‘second 20’s’ on Netflix. Before I knew it it’s Sunday night and I have binged it.
It made me feel very nostalgic. The reason why I started watching kdramas. Reminded me of the days I used to binge a drama.

I think it is safe to say, this was the most entertaining drama I watched this year. Entertainment guaranteed!

    But that epilogue! Augh! I hated that epilogue. I wish I hadn’t seen it and just stopped watching once the bloopers were done 😡 what about Wan Soo 😭 like I don’t want to feel sorry for him too much – he walked around freely for 15 years, someone had to go to fail for him, he robbed a family 15 years of their lives apart, he had the audacity to have a close relationship with Seok Hui when he caused her misery!!! Writer, why did you write off Wan Soo!

    Other than that Seok Hui 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    3
    1

      They never explained it, but I believe he had blocked off that memory for many years due to ptsd. He never felt sorry for Seok Hui because he simply didn’t remember it happened, until Director Han called him out.

      3
      1

        Well I hope that may be the case. That he didn’t turn himself in because he had forgotten this happened. My heart was broken for him, but then I realized the misery he brought to other people and I wanted to unbreak my heart.

        I had a flashback of that time he was the only one who gave Seok Hui a hug on that day and how it was a fond memory to her. ☹️☹️

        2
        1

          They never explained. Whether he forgot or he didn’t remember doing it. It didn’t make sense. And it was so upsetting. It was so hard for Mo Seok hi. To hate someone she cared about all along.
          He got away too easily. That way I liked it when Han said she takes responsibility. That whole TOP team got away too easy.
          at least they don’t have the power anymore. So hope they are not dangerous.
          In a way it looked like Wan Soo’s death affected Han more than chAirman or prosecutor.
          Whatever.

          3
          1

            At first I didn’t understand that part about Han remembering Wan Soo’s question about what his next life will be like. In hindsight I don’t think she felt remorse or wanted to take responsibility at all. She didn’t want to be the failure he was. Wan Soo said failure isn’t because you didn’t try hard enough and she doesn’t agree. So she didn’t commit suicide and took the punishment, which she knew would be lighter if she admitted. She still won at the end, by her choices.

Extraordinary You – Episode 6

Screen-Shot-2019-10-18-at-10-32-24-AM

Well, well, well! Am glad he pieced the puzzles together and figured it out himself. Am not sure what\’s going on in his head.
Strangely, this episode it felt like BK had the ability to change the stage. His shadow personality has been somewhat triggering the stage.
I wonder if the writer is going to make him the \’evil\’ character. Everyone who is aware wants to change the stage to suit them. So I except nothing less from him. He is going to make every attempt to keep his status-quo. Which means, keeping Haru out of the picture and getting Dan-Oh to like him again.

Screen-Shot-2019-10-18-at-10-30-26-AM
Ok. The fairy! what is he prophesying? The next one to disappear or next one to gain awareness? Does he know the trigger for self-awareness? Or does he know the rules for disappearance?
If its the later, I worry for Do-Hwa. Since he has changed the main romance, he might be at the risk of disappearing.

    I like your theory with his shadow personality triggering changes in stage but this scares me and I don’t know why… Maybe because it took DoHwa, DanOh, and Haru to change the stage but if it only takes Kyung to change it… He has one intense personality

    I don’t like that Fairy is keeping things to himself… why not share what you know with the rest of the class so that EVERYONE will be okay and not DISAPPEAR?? I sure hope nothing happens to Dohwa, this cinnamon roll just wants to be happy~

    The writing for this show…. Isn’t that good. They’re using very on the nose & typical drama mechanisms. They’re using YJD the candy who could be aware but chooses to remain oblivious as foil to EDO’s character.
    Similarly BK is the foil to Haru’s character.
    Instead of a story about sentience, that answers Qs & explores free will, we’re instead getting one that relies on old over used tactics. They’ve created villains for our MCs when the story would have been better as struggle against fate – how to trick their way out of established rules. But for that to happen the rules would need to exist.

    This drama has glossed over all its realistic manhwa writing, plot holes & their effect by relying on fantasy to fill in the gap.
    They dont explain how & why a character awakens – is knowledge & prompting by another aware character necessary to become self aware? BK’s trajectory to awakening was all kinds of weird.

      I hope we get some explanations next week. If we are exactly where the translated chapters stopped STOP HERE IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE WEBTOON w/h/e/r/e//h/a/r/u//d/o/e/s/n/t//r/e/m/e/m/b/e/r//y/o/u//k/n/o/w//w/h/a/t then we might see some backstory. WE NEED ANSWERS NOT MORE QUESTIONS.

          I’ll throw the writer there if the characters won’t have developments especially YJD and ONJ because we clearly have some developments in store for EDO, Haru, BK and LDW. I WANT THE BAEK KYUNG ARC TO HAPPEN NOW so I can see some bromance onscreen pfft

          It does. It’s their jack of all trades. It works as a portal to explain Haru & fairy, & it will work as the way to rescue EDO. It works as an ominous sign of change & ruination & hope all at same time.
          The black hole exists for twofold purpose – to function as & to fill in plot holes.

Of the many things I obsess about, Baek-Kyung\’s confused expressions are the the newest.
From the king of scowls, frowns, smirks – bringing to you the confused looks.

Extraordinary you
That ending!! Loved it. After all that effort by the 3 characters to change the stage, they did manage it but she fell right in Baek Kyung’s arms!!
Why do I have a feeling that Haru, Baek Kyung and Dan Oh have upstaged the main leads and are moving into the main role.
What if they become the main characters while slowly pushing Nam Joo and JuDa away from the spot light? Why not? These 3 are way more fascinating than the main love triangle.

    Do you think she’s switched to the lead now? And what is that Flower manhwa? I think it’s another manhwa, a crossover? And did you see, Haru switched with a guy with glasses in the manhwa? Omg. So excited. And Kyung…gasp! My heart. Fluttered. This episode was all him. Such a terrific actor. That scowl has been replaced by a frown, and it’s as hot as that scowl. I love Scowling Kyung, Frowning Kyung, Wrist-grabbing Kyung..All
    Kyungs. And why did he put Haru’s name down? He’s searchinh for answers, right..PLEASE BE AWARE SOON, WAKE UPPPP…why is there so much chemistry between him and Donah. Haru and Donah are so terribly sweet though, when he said, YOU, omg, I melted.

      Kyung gives me life. His becoming self aware has been the most fascinating of all.
      The way he looks at Haru with partial recognition, the way he looked lost (in the school at night), his desperation to get control back by holding on to Dan Oh -everything was so intense.
      I hope the writer doesn’t make him a straight villain with no depth. LJW is giving this role so much life. Bwoy is so hot!! I can’t.
      I wait for his scenes.

Extraordinary You – Episode 4 (7/8)

Baek Kyung – Feeling betrayed!

ok, I just finished watching Epsiode 4 and I felt extremely betrayed. Betrayed by the writer, by Dan-Oh and Do-Hwa.
It all felt very sad. It was painful to see Baek-Kyung\’s unresolved feelings – he is self-aware but doesn\’t know it, his feelings went straight to \’jealousy\’ as he tries to hold on to what was his, that \’jealousy\’ creeped into the stage (by the writer) and he is just exploding everywhere.

This show was pointing out how we all look at things from the \’central\’ characters perspective. And in that lens, Dan-Oh is her center. She is seeing Baek Kyung as the guy who has been hurting her for years. And when Baek Kyung betrayed his awareness, she just did not catch it. Because, he was irrelevant to her.
He clearly acted out of character saying he is worried about her, and she even noticed that he spoke of an event that did not happen in stage because something changed. Why did she not catch this?

The next one who should have caught it was Do-Hwa. There was absolutely no reason why Do-Hwa did not catch it. He doesn\’t have any prejudice against BK and he is his friend, by stage. His face showed that he had the doubts. He should have questioned him more. He should have.

It was really painful to watch Baek Kyung suddenly remembering everything and he doesn\’t know how to react. His extreme jealousy was his instant reaction. Everything from stage to shadow is just pouring on his awareness and he is exploding.
[I will talk about that sequence in a separate post]
For now, I am really trying to understand what the \’writer\’ is trying to do with Baek Kyung. Because, this HURTS!!

      He definitely is. Even the previous episode he was showing signs. This episode he definitely is there. The fact that he remembers what’s happening in the stage is what is getting to him, because it’s outside the script and he is going rogue.

    Also I’m not THAT impressed with Do-hwa. He’s nice to everyone but doesn’t stand up for anyone either. Like Yuda, when Namjoo bullies her. He just stands to the side & let’s it happen. Very meh for me.

      Even in the ‘real’ world he ended up the secondary character 🙂

      Just like what Dan Oh told him he seemed pretty lax and accepting of his reality. After the first shock, life moved on for him. We’ll see if he has some character growth going on too, but at the moment he seems to be more interested in Dan Oh’s life and quest to freedom.

      1
      1

        That’s what is interesting. Depending on what personality and context the writer has given these characters their awakening may or may not be significant.
        For eg Dan-Oh has a reasonably good life with money and caring father and good friends. But has a terminal illness. So her biggest conflict after awakening is staying alive. So her focus is clear. And she is able to cast aside years of her hurt from BK due to her personality.
        For DoHwa we know nothing of his life. It’s bland. He is just a simple sweet guy who is happy to be around. So his awakening was equally bland.
        But Baek Hyung is a complex character – he has major abuse issues going on at home, he is a loner, he has temper issues and a lot of unresolved stuff. On top of it he has to like a girl for his fathers sake and has been building up for years. So when he awakens, there is whole lot of deal with.
        The sooner he knows the rules of the world the better it’s for him. But I fear the writer is taking his jealousy and running with it. And i dont like it.

        8
        0

    I was surprised by how violent he became in the Stage ever since Haru acted on his own. I’m not sure if it’s the webtoon writer finding his jealousy interesting and making use of it (which, ugh, no! Stop, please), or it’s the ugly side effect of too many characters awakening that the Squid Guy talked about. Either way, I’m dreading the moment when Kyung finally know the truth. If he realized he was behaving much like his hated father in front of the girl that he actually cared about… (and yes, I’m 98% sure that deep down he cares aboit Dan-oh)

      I am not too sure he cares about Dan-oh. At least not until he realises she is not the manipulative spoiled rich girl he thinks she is. Maybe he does care for her in a unconscious way but whenever he suspects or knows she’s out of danger, he changes real quick to utter contempt.

      I feel the same way! It shocked me that he became violent so quickly and it felt a bit out of character (at the time) for him…

        Ikr? It really felt out of character for him to behave that way. He never really resorted to physical assault before. But at the same time, I wonder if this will be the thing that fully awaken him. After all, Do-hwa admitted that he felt strange when suddenly his life revolved around Ju-da. Maybe the trigger for these character awakening is whenever the webtoon writer make them do something out of character or give them an inconsistent turn of event.

    Dohwa would probably be the first character to notice Baek Kyung gaining awareness and caring for Danoh but he might not be the one to tell him. Poor puppy has to discover he is aware all by himself.

    I’m 99.9% sure Baek Kyung in the drama cares for Danoh, at least deep inside.

    From Dan Oh’s perspective, even if she understands Baek Kyung, this was the same guy who hurts her stage self, the one she pines for hopelessly, so I guess there’s some bias there from her. She doesn’t see that he maybe close to being self aware even if she noted he’s been odd because she simply couldn’t care less…

        Yes hopefully he will not turn into a villain in this drama as a result of his self-awareness. And that his self aware will be like Dan Oh – to do all means to get his life back and correct it.

          I have a strong feeling that’s where the writers are going with him. Come on, look at him. He is so good at playing the bad guy that it affects us viewers. It would be too tempting to use him as an antagonist!!

Extraordinary You – Episode 3 (5/6)

Baek Kyung knows her gaze, and it falters!

For someone who claims he doesn\’t care, he sure as hell knows when Dan-Oh\’s attention is not on him. He is constantly aware of her gaze and the moment it falters he takes note.

…..

He is talking to her, but she is not looking at him. He snaps at her to look at him. Because, that\’s what he is used to. Her looking at him at all time.

He enters the lab, and he instantly knows Dan-Oh\’s eyes are not on him but behind him. Suspiciously, he looks behind him as #13 makes his entry.

When in the classroom, he also takes note of Dan-Oh looking at #13 who is by the window. We dont get to see him more, but am pretty sure he noticed #13.

The girls are cheering the boys play soccer, but he knows Dan-Oh\’s gaze is not on him, but on this other guy. He also takes note that this other guy is looking at her too.

    OMOOO!!! I especially love that soccer scene!! Actually anything shadow scene I love. My fictional characters being real!

    We see more of Baek Kyung who is not so much of a grumpy in shadow. And how he genuinely cares for Dan Oh.

      The number of times he has asked her about her health!! I have lost count.
      Even when he grumpily says that she should have stayed at home instead of the summer camp it like he is worried..

      This is what is so interesting about him and what I have to pay more attention to. How he acts on stage vs. The shadows.

      3
      1

        The library scene was an interesting switch. Brutal and violent and I hate the writer for turning him into that kind of character, but that was a great switch ngl. He was watching Dan Oh laughing with a guy in the shadow and the scene switched to stage and suddenly we saw him slamming Haru against the bookcase!

        2
        1

          Yes, the shadow version had a problem with it but the stage version became violent. Also, is the writer adopting Haru into the story? Why would Haru the unamed extra with no face be a trigger for one of the supporting characters?

          1
          1

            We were discussing this on discord – how it’s interesting that the writer seems to have taken an interest with Haru already! This was the fairy’s warning to Dan Oh.

            Anyways he probably still remains a no face when the altercation happened, but I guess the trigger was Dan Oh’s attention was on another guy, and not Baek Kyung. Writer must think it was okay to hurt him to show Baek Kyung’s jealousy because he is an extra with no face and name….

            3

    I like Kyung but why is he so mean if he’s just a shoujo character? Isn’t it too much? What is his role in something like BOF, a guy that is mean to a rich sick girl because his father tells him to please her, while he secretly cares for her but is afraid to get closer because she might die? Isn’t this way complex for BOF? Maybe he only cares for her off main stage? What is his official story in the comic? How come he can watch things between n13 and her if the other guy is not a part of the main comic?

    2
    2

      I keep thinking the same. What is the writer trying to show. That he is a victim of parental abuse?
      Stage:
      I think his anger is on his father and he is just taking it out on her. He is also embarrassed that he has to be in this relationship because its beneficial to his father.
      May be he started being nasty hoping Dan-Oh will break off the engagement on her own accord? But instead she kept liking him which made him more angry. Does the writer have a redemption arc for BK – and how will that work out. Would her death make him guilty?
      I really want to know where the writer is going with this.
      Shadows: Everytime he is in the shadow, he has shown signs of caring. He delivers his dialogues in the same ‘nasty’ manner, but he always checks on her hospital visits/health. He even asks her why she is in a summer camp when she should be taking care of her her health first. His reactions in the shadows have shown a lot of awareness.
      When in the shadows he is able to see the other characters like everyone else.

      3
      1

        He is a victim but he is also mean towards her, partly because he envies her loving parent, and her seemingly easy way to deal with liking someone, partly because he blames her for allowing this fake engagement to go on even though she knows he doesn’t like her the same way. He feels a bit guilty tough, maybe because he isn’t such a moron that would treat a girl this badly, but he can’t help himself because he is not strong enough yet. He also seems to like her somehow and feel jealousy when the other guy enters the scene. Which leads me back to my original question, he is way too complex for a shoujo and I don’t know what is his role except maybe to be a villain? I confess I like him way more then n13 but I know he is not the lead! Very meta.

        2
        1

          I agree with the ‘he blames her’ part. He thinks the situation came to this point because she kept playing the part without taking his feelings into consideration.
          We these boys all handsome and ripped, we tend to forget these are high school kids!
          BK isn’t strong enough to face his father yet. He wants to break free from his father, yet he is unable to. Even his school/dating life is dictated by his father. A very frustrating situation to be in. If you notice, BK often uses the words ‘frustrating’ and ‘annoying’. He never says he hates her or anything else.

          According to other beanies, his character is not this fleshed out in the webtoon. He was a simple ‘jerk’. The writers have changed BK for the drama. I guess its because of casting LJW.

            That makes a lot of sense! They made him so interesting he became out of character for a comic like that and the actor is doing a fine job. I dropped that other show that made him popular but I can understand what people like about him kkkk.

      The comic story is actually not a fluffy romcom as we thought. We are just at the start of the story where the main leads started to fall in love. Like other stories later it will turn serious. Ex Dan Oh has a heart condition, Baek Kyung is abused by his father and the other characters also have their own “secrets”

    My heart skipped a beat whenever Kyung betrayed her care for Dan-oh in Shadow scenes. But at the same time, I winced at his Stage persona. He is too mean. I’m afraid that he will hate himself so much the moment he awakened, especially since he seems to have real feelings toward Dan-oh.

    2
    1

      The number of times he has inquired after her health. He is so accustomed to being the jerk, that even when he wants to show care during the ‘shadow’ he delivers it the exact same way. He is supposed to be frustrated and annoyed with her, so he keeps going back to that same feeling everytime he seems DanOh.
      I am so dreading his awareness . Its going to hurt so much.. so much..

    YAS A BAEK KYUNG CONTENT ON THE FAN WALL! I needed this post to motivate me to be productive so that I could spam the fan wall with more Baek Kyung content later!

    I think it was pretty obvious that he is gaining awareness after Danoh became different because we need to admit that he only has eyes for Danoh but the writer is making him a BIG jerk. He doesn’t deserve that treatment! *swears at the writer like Danoh*

Extraordinary You

Baek Kyung starts to notice – Is he becoming self-aware?

And slowly you start noticing that he is noticing her.
And then there is a curiosity in his face.
He walks towards her and even makes small talk!!
And finally, he says \’You are acting weird these days\’!!

How does he know? He is not supposed to remember the shadows!! Is he already aware or is he turning?

What will his personality be when he becomes aware. Will be be the cold-tsundere with a soft heart or will he be different..

    My take: he’s turning. After the main characters get into their main story line (love triangle between Nam-Joo & Joo-Da & Do-Hwa), he get less appearance as the supporting cast. Then he spends more time in the shadow and I believe its the reason one starts becoming self-aware.

    I actually didn’t notice this! Great catch!

    I feel like this show will make me very sad. Putting to one side the seeming futility of what Dan-oh’s trying to do (what she’s doing is the equivalent of rebelling against God!), our main male leads may go through a lot of heartache. In the spotlight, Baek-kyung will have fake Dan-oh’s affection and Haru will be out in the cold; from the look of things, the dynamic is going to be reversed in the shadows. I’m gonna be feeling bad for one and happy for the other throughout! =(

      I know right! This show is affecting me quite deeply. It’s quite sad. You can’t root for the ‘real’ characters as readers, since we are also privy to the shadows.

        The funny thing is that, once we see the “main characters” from the perspective of the extras and side characters, our opinion of them changes completely. We going from being all anguished for Candy because of the bullying she faces, and from being all “whew biker-man is a hotty”, to thinking the “main characters” are just a bunch of weirdos who think the world revolves around them. Dan-oh’s internal commentary during spotlight really leads to a sense indignation over the side characters becoming instruments/means for the main characters. I don’t know about anybody else, but I already kinda hate Joo-da, even though it’s not her fault.

        I just hope Haru and Dan-oh get a happily ever after (although I’m not holding my breath; rebellions against God never end well).

        11

      Rather than rebellion against God, I see her movement as a fight for her freedom. She wants full control of what she can think and do for herself. God gave freedom to his creation – freedom to serve him or to not serve him. If we are to use analogy, I would say she is like a colony wanting to separate from the country owning it to form its own. Her life, her rules.

      I read somewhere that writers do listen to what their characters tell them. Episode 2 in and we’ve seen that something had changed already as a result of her fight – she didn’t break a leg; received a scrapped knee instead. Fairy tells her it’s moot point, but it’s little things like this that keeps one’s hopes up.

        Well, presumably every rebellion against God – whether by the Titans, by Satan, or whomever – is also a fight for freedom (from God) by the rebels.

        It might depend on the religious tradition you come from! Many religions – including various sects of Christianity like the Presbyterians – believe there is no freedom of will; everything is preordained, and the belief that one is the master of her fate or captain of her soul is just a mirage. But even in traditions where God gives His creations freedom, I’m not sure one would earn anything but His wrath by trying to use that freedom to defy His designs for the world, designs which He has already begun to put into motion.

        I would accept the territory analogy, but with a proviso. She is like a territory that is dependent on the broader political entity of which it is a part for essential economic assistance yet wants to be independent while receiving that assistance (she’s like Quebec! LOL).

        All of this is really convoluted way of getting at a core difficulty of Dan-oh’s situation; she wants to make her own choices, but her entire existence continues only at the sufferance of the mangaka and its hard so far to see how she could control what happens to her unless this story goes all W on us. I agree 100%, though, that the interesting change in the stair fall scene suggests that things might be changeable (and I oh so hope they are!), but so far all we’ve gotten are changes on the margins (although we’re only 2 episodes in, so I might be extrapolating and reaching a hasty conclusion – I hope that’s the case!).

    Good catch! How would he remember unless he’s starting to become aware?

    I want to see Haru, but Jae Wook’s character is more fleshed out, & even though the character is a jerk, the actor is fabulous. I hope the changes in the drama are for the better, because I don’t like him in the webtoon at all even after he becomes aware.

    I kinda don’t like its stage vs shadows (off stage might have been better)…or they should’ve kept heads & tails.

    I feel like I’m rambling…

        I am ok with the stage and shadows – Its easier to represent on a visual medium I suppose. Also, when a stage event is happening we have actors on the sidelines who can do whatever they want since they are in the shadow ( the playground scene where the main leads are flirting in the stairs while our FL is doing her thing). All this can be represented in a single shot with stage & shadows. If it were head and tails I might expect both to not coexist. if that make sense!

    What if he’s already self aware, and that’s why he’s especially rude to Dan Oh about how she never changes?! 😜 he’s been self aware for a while but decided he can change nothing.

    Also ~ what if both Kyung and the SL of the “main” plot fall in love with Dan Oh in the shadow land?

    I’ve got a theory as well that Dan Oh is that character in a story that a writer always struggles to write ~ the one created for plot purposes but who is slowly getting harder and harder to write since they seem to want to do their own thing. I haven’t read anything about the webtoon, but my theory is that Haru is the faceless avatar for the writer, his scar something like like a callous from flipping the pages or getting too many paper cuts. And the writer uses his avatar to interact with Dan Oh, the character he can’t control but is falling for…

    Anyways, that’s enough crazy theories for one morning. 😘

    5
    2

      I refuse to imagine that Baek-Kyung is knowingly rude to her ; ))

      I would absolutely love all of them to fall in love with her in the ‘shadows’!

      Interesting – At what point does the character gets to become self aware and starts to influence the writer. Or at what point does the writer give the character more agency to write themselves.
      The trigger can be both ways..
      I love the Haru theory (it being the writer – explains the nameless character). That the writer somehow became attracted to this one small side character in the shadows and its influencing the stage.
      We still need explanation on the 2 points
      1) When and how do they become self aware?
      2) What makes the destiny change (like her ending up with a band-aid and not a cast). If Haru is the writer avatar, it makes sense that the story board changed due to the creator.
      but I doubt that is the case.

      Looking forward to all the theories!!

      6
      1

        I think there could be two forces at play here. One is the writer, Dry Squid, who’s already planned out the whole story. He is not self-aware, he’s the manipulator of everything and everyone in the story. He showed Danoh the stage and the puppets. He controls everything. He is fond of Danoh, he pities her, but he knows nothing will change. He doesn’t want anything to change. This is his story, and this is the way he wants it. The other force is Haru. He’s the artist. He got that cut from painting…it looks like a smear of orange paint…maybe it’s not a scar, but a symbol of the fact that he paints? He is drawn to Danoh. He begins to spend more and more time drawing her, detailed sketches of her, and perhaps, that is the reason she became self-aware. He took an interest in her, pored over her sketches, and elevated her role. This brings him to conflict wuth Dry Squid. That’s why Dry Squid was so upset when he discovered that the guy Danoh has been so curious about is Haru. He recognises him. Haru has pasted pictures and sketches of Danoh in the library. So the artist’s control centre is the library, the writer’s is the kitchen. They are not allowed to encroach on each other’s territories, as in each has absolute control in each realm. But the sketches are leaking into the kitchen

        3
        1

          The edges are blurring, the writer is receiving warning signs that his story is being infiltrated by the artist. Bith are essential to the plot, but both have to be in total agreement. The artist is rebelling, and in that last scene, it seems he has decided to follow his heart, and not his duty…he is not going to let the girl he likes be treated so shabbily anymore, he’s made a stand, and changed everything…compare that to the drowning scene where he just stood by passively.

          3
          4

            This is a really interesting theory. Does it very often happen that the writer and artist are two different people? The only manwhas that I read have a single author/artist.

            0

            @lindag I read someone putting forward this possibility on a website. I think it would explain the conflict between the two? I’m not sure how it works, but it makes sense to have a writer hire an artist to draw his story, don’t you think? But the artist would be guided by whatever the writer wants. Or maybe there are two writers?

            1
            0

            @yyishere, I think you are on to something, but I also have trouble seeing Dried Squid Fairy as the writer. Maybe he’s the publisher? Then his interest would be to see a successful story get published, and keep the author in line. So he could be getting upset because he sees the story going off track. It would explain why he is a little remote from the characters and keeps insisting that nothing can change, why he has the stage and explains how things work. For him, it would be important to keep things working that way. He just doesn’t come across as a creative force, or the creator of those characters who come to the kitchen to talk to him.

      I read a comment asking if Haru Was the writer? So it got me thinking. What if Haru is the writers avatar? Like how Hitchcock made cameos in his films. Always in the shadows, observing. Not in the main plot line but always there. I mean have you seen Harus sketches. I don’t know where I am going with this but I like your theory.

Auto Enrollment : Second Lead syndrome!

You know, how against all reason you fall for the bad guy?
You know he is a jerk, he says nasty things to the female lead, yet you find reasons. You start dissecting the micro expressions and wonder may be deep down he cares?
And then in one moment, he shows a look of concern, runs down the stairs and carries her to the infirmary. And you start shooting heart eyes. And then a simple \’How is your leg? Is it okay\’ completely sends you to the SLS point of no return.
Damn it, I got it bad!! this is going to be hard.. so damn hard.. But, I don\’t care. I shall endure it for you LJW!!

Dan-Oh\’s mind voice is everything!

Dan-Oh\’s mind voice is the collective drama viewers voice who have been asking these questions for centuries!

Break-up scene: The jerk is rude and you are crying? Yes, Why?

Every awesome second male-lead out there

There is never a scene where the characters are seen without their phone, but almost never have it during a crisis!!

    Also gotta mention how much I’m in love with Kim Hye Yoon’s versatility. She can switch stage and shadow during her conversation with Bae Kyung and does it with so much ease! Both scenes were delivered very well. I felt for her when she was tearing up because of Bae Kyung’s rejection and then she cringe and hate stage self at the same time for reacting that way!

      Auuugh I hate auto correct. Always fixes my Baek to Bae… I mean I know he’s a bae, but stop fixing his last name, phone!!! 🤬

      This show heavily relies on her acting chops and boy does she deliver!! Even without the sound effects I can begin to tell heads from tails ( stage vs shadow).

      I have 25 screenshots of BK for reasons unknown to me (who am I kidding). He really can be a nasty villain eh? I felt the disgust in his face when he treated her poorly.

        I’m not judging, blue! 😜 Post them 25 screenshots on your wall, so we can all 😍😍😍 at him! Share the goodies.

        And I knooooow! It’s gonna suck so much once he figures out who he is and how much of everything he feels, thinks and acts are pretty much dictated to him.

    I’ll be curious about how the romance with Haru will play out. Dan-oh is already self-aware (in the sense of being aware of how cliched people can be when they’re romantically involved with other people) and I wonder if this will transfer over to how she behaves with Haru.
