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..
      I don’t know at what point he is going to turn, but am so not ready for it..

          Doesn’t help people around him keep saying unusual words like “you won’t remember this bit anyways….” etc

      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.

        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!

          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?

            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….

    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?

      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.

        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.

          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.

      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..

    I feel like a traitor but even I never saw it coming. I completely fell off the BK ship when Haru appeared on my screen. He was just….so soft and pure. It also doesn’t help that Rowoon is BEAUTIFUL. Lee Jae Wook ur still my forever no.1 but this is gonna be a tough one babe.

    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*
