My Country: Jang Hyuk is great! The younger cast does a good job, but when it is Jang Hyuk\’s scenes everything before his appearance looks like a child play.
He is charismatic and steals the spotlight! Every time I see him I actually feel that Bang Won is the king material. I will follow the guy, I\’ll bet on him any day! That\’s how convincing he is (RIP his poor little brother, the boy doesn\’t stand a chance)

    He started as an idol in a group long time ago. So even idols turned actors can work.

      Jang Hyuk? He was never an idol. He did do a rap album once he became an actor but that’s it.

        I didn’t know until I’ve watched I Live Alone episode where a friend of Si-eon was imitating Jang Hyuk and they were talking about it.

Everyone should see Pegasus Market. It has the Emperor, Oompa Loompas, Sunflowers, heavy metal, Yeo Jin Goo and most importantly Abdul Hasan.

    It was hella funny because I made the same expressions as Eun Jung in these scenes. This drama is indeed full of weirdos =)))

      Literally everyone is weird in……some way.
      His dramatic pauses crack me up and I actually get why Eun Jung might open up to someone like him. Similiar to the actress he seems to have little to no filter.

    I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve rewatched their scenes. Is Son Seok Koo’s character’s name Kim Sang Soo? AsianWiki lists it as “Sang Soo” and the man at the orphanage called him “Chairman Kim.” I’m just gonna call him NIceAndWarm.

      I call him Director Yell. And Son Seok Koo is SO likeble. I have yet to see a drama where I don’t care about his character.

Me- Hey, you definitely have to check out this new drama, it\’s great!
Friend-Really? Tell me about it.
Me-Well, there is this guy who is stalking female lead. That\’s how everything starts.
Friend- oh, geez, poor girl
Me-not exactly, she probably killed his brother.
Friend- So the main guy is taking revenge? The whole show is about it?
Me- Not exactly, they fall in love.
Friend-…
Me-….you would love it. Really.

      It’s about I Want to Hear your Song. This show is a wreck and I have zero idea why I enjoy it so much.
      Actually, thinking back to it, Man Wol was a stalking Chang Sung, right?

        I have not watched Hotel de Luna (saving it for later marathon), I was afraid you spoiled it for me. Thank goodness. :)) So no idea how to reply to your question!
        Btw, do you recommend IWTHYS? The story seems dark???

        2

          It is surprisingly not that dark. Or depressing. It is more of a rom-com with a murder mystery backstory. Majority of times you would wonder what you are supposed to feel about…any relationship or character in this show. It is one of those dramas you love, but logically can’t explain why.

WWW: Such a great show. Everything was great about it except main loveline. I have zero idea why main leads missed each other that much at the end. They dated for 1 month and 90% of it they were fighting/on the verge of breakup

Ep 10 of Legends of Alhambra is depressing. Each episode is depressing. I think writer wants to make Jin Woo the most pitiful dramaland character ever.

About Beauty Inside: I am just so mad at the creators. It feels like they missed the whole point of the movie. Getting loved no matter how you look was all this show was about, even not giving \”real\” face to main character was a point, because you shouldn\’t expect your loved one to go from beast to prince. In this case, they used such a great premise as a plot device and made main character work in a lookism oriented workplace.

    I absolutely loved everything about the movie and to turn to show into a romantic comedy, yeah, not feeling it.

      I am so sad for the premise. It is especially unsettling that main lead has face blindness. I mean…. writers seriously thought no healthy person would survive a week with their loved one who has different face?

        And what was so important about the film was the love interest and the emotional issues she had that lead to physical problems for her. She was so in love she was making herself sick and really didn’t know what to do about it.

    there was honestly so much to love about that movie, like the fact that it wasn’t about beauty at all. it didn’t just focus on appearance, it said that gender doesn’t matter, age doesn’t matter (… to a degree), language barriers don’t matter. it was just. two souls loving each other. HHJ has brought so much tenderness to her role it always seemed like she was deeply in love with her partner. it just doesn’t work with asshole CEOs and unhinged movie stars and slave contracts and enemies to lovers. it’s not life anymore.

Did main lead just stopped his children from getting born so that he would get the new shiny wife and freedom to play PSP?

I have to admit, this was cute, but before that main lead made me wonder what was worse
-dating someone like him or dying in 100 day

I am so happy with APAD’s ending. I know some people thought it got boring after Dr. Ye and Bo young started dating, but I really loved how little drama they had in relationships. Good communication and simply being happy together. They both deserve that

P.S Okay, but it is still out of fantasy world that those two didn’t get caught

    I really wanted to see an epilogue where they would show us the dept, where they would break the fourth wall and address us directly, saying ‘ you really think we don’t know?’

      Hahaha..like what they did in Jugglers!! That would be super awesome.

      I was thinking the same thing too, How could anyone fail to notice how completely smitten Dr. Ye is with all those adoring gaze! This is literally Dr. Ye: 😍😍😍

        Exactly like jugglers! Maybe they didn’t notice because they were too busy cringing when he tried to become comfortable with them.but for someone who’s too nosy, they sure were oblivious.

To Ye-Liners
Just how traumatized we were by the past dramas, that even though female lead was screaming \”Long live Ye-line\” since episode 2, we were thinking \”my ship is definitely gonna sink\”.

    Because he was so second lead material, heh.
    It still could sink you know, though that would mean Bo Young would end up alone and unhappy *traumatised for life*

    2
    1

      Honestly, at this point it is as possible as one of the leads dying, by that I mean that narrative wise it doesn’t make any sense. Bo Young liked one guy for 11 episodes, she likes and thinks about the second one as much as about Nam Woo.
      We would probably get an episode of angst but I doubt we have anything to worry about it.

      3
      1

        That’s what I meant with *traumatised for life* At this point it would take noble idiocy, Truck of Doom, cancer, amnesia, ex-girlfriend scandal reveal, or secret double personality disorder to separate those two. I hate misunderstandings and mini-break ups, so I hope the writer has a good plan for the next 4 episodes.

Ji Ah is the real representative of poor heroine who has three part time jobs.
She wears one black hoodie whole drama (practical), has eye bags (in terrible need of sleep!), talks only when necessary and doesn\’t express or smile that much (saving energy). Plus, she is anything but bright and optimistic.
Yea, that\’s how you really live a hard life.

Minho made me so mad in this episode. Even I would have cried on Boyoung\’s place. Humilating her in front of her crush and portraying her as a stalker. Geez. Way to make girl regret her crush on you….and if previous episode I said that I would be fine if my ship doesn\’t sail, I am eating my words. Your personal growth shouldn\’t be on expense of your lifetime partner

        It’s too early to tell. In either case we’ll be there for each other if the others ship sinks. But honestly I wouldn’t mind if minho gets the girl, provided he grows up and stops fooling around.

      I did watch the scene (maybe 5 or 6 times?). I have no idea how it is possible for our ship to sink (with both of them at some degree liking each other), but I am getting ready for major disappointment.
      About uploading photos-no worries, beanies have already posted it. Still, with which part did you had a problem? I would try to help, it isn’t hard at all

    I think Ye Line is happening and my ship is sinking.
    I blame Min Ho for being an immature idiot though.
    And also Jang Dong Yoon for making him lovable.

        Unfortunately not yet. Something still feels off for me. They work but they don’t. I think Bo Young is just a little bit crazier in comparison to Dr Ye’s calm at the moment. LOL

      It is not my ship but I agree about Jang Dong Yoon. If min ho was played by any other actor I would probably even hate the sight of him but JDY does such a great job that at some point I even get why Bo Young was helping him back then

Thanks Live and My Ajusshi for existing. This two shows are literally dragging me out of my drama slump and stop me from writing angry rents about how every drama feels so cliched and unrealistic.
AND they both do great in ratings. Hooray.

    I’m watching both those shows, too. I’ve been thinking about My Ajusshi for the last two days. The first episode was a bit too dark for me, but the second episode really hooked me.

Plot wise, Tae Hee reminds me of Dan Humphrey from Gossip girl. The representative of more grounded people who we are supposed to relate. Unfortunately, with such a flashy heroes she (and Dan) seems too cliched and feels more like a threat to the friends dynamic.
I think, the problem is also that the whole need of innocent-kind character is that those things (innocence and kindness) should lack in main heroes life, here they have more different form but they still present . In this case we have gang of teenagers who are acting like one and are trying REALLY hard to stay somewhat sane by sticking together. If anything Shi Hyun has problematic friendship and shitty father, but you definitely can\’t say that he is unfortunate or has the need of angelic girl’s pure heart

    OMG! Gossip Girl is totally the vibe The Great Seducer is giving me! I couldn’t place that niggling feeling that the show gave me! Thanks for mentioning it, I don’t know I would have got there on my own.
    But I know what you are talking about with the feeling that the “good girl” character seems out-of-place in the show. I had to stop myself from posting a rant yesterday on how the female lead is often “#relateable” while being such a goody-two-shoes. And I want a bad girl to get to be the lead for once!

      Yes, I concur beanie! That’s why Blair Waldorf is/was my most favorite GG character. And her chemistry with Chuck Bass was amazing!

      I would definitely read that rant. I am very close to writing my own.
      At this point, I am wondering if this “good girls” are written this way to be rootable and not relateble. I mean, the only people who are this open, kind, childrish, motivated and without personality issues are near the same percentage as chaebols in real world. In my case, I have probably seen more chaebols than those unicorns.
      Plus, It often feels like writers are too scared to make female lead anything other than good.

    I’m getting such Gossip Girl vibes too especially with second male lead who reminds me of Chuck Bass with his flashy limo and his secret adoration for bad girl second female lead

    I guess I’m not the only one who feels Gossip Girl vibe in this drama! I’ve been waiting for the recap to be posted for me to express my opinion. Tae Hee does feel like Dan, the unwanted one in the rich gang and on the other hand, I feel like she’s Vanessa as well. 😂
