Beanie level: Errand boy

There’s no way you can make me believe Sun Ho is anything but a grade A, first-class dick. The father who tried to have him killed is who he chose over the friend that would give his life for him. To make matters worse Sun Ho is now the apple of Yeon’s eye. Yeah, y’all can miss me with that “he’s conflicted and he really loves Hwi” crap. He has his own agenda and he used and continues to use Hwi to get there. Even in the revenge Sun Ho seeks on his father, Hwi is nothing but a pawn. There is no redemption for Sun Ho to me.

Just starting My Country and honestly, I don’t buy Sun Ho’s conflict. Like what did he think was going to happen to Yeon was Hwi was carted away? Sun Ho is no better than his father.

    Then you should love the female lead. Sun Ho’s my favorite. His conflict becomes clearer, but I get what you’re saying.

Is that the CEO of Goryeo Publishing in Tale of Nokdu? I finally started it and was pleasantly surprised to see him.

Dongbaek was wrong for not telling him about Pil Gu and Yong Sik has not right to tell him not to come around. Jong Ryeol is not the man for Dongbaek but he has a right to his son.

    I’ve been saying this in every recap kkk
    She’s not just wrong in the past she keeps thinking and acting as if she has the complete right to keep him away from the child. I can’t like this character, it’s my first GHJ unlikable woman.

    People seem to think because JR is not such a nice guy she can do something like that. I can forgive YS a little because she let him believe JR abandoned them which isn’t the truth. Again, disliking this woman.

    1

    My problem with JR is that he is not thinking about what’s good/right for the kid. He is only thinking about it from his perspective.
    I do understand he and DB have unresolved issues and what happened in the past cannot be fixed. He was shocked with this news and he has been acting like this because of this shock. But I expected him to come around and act maturely.
    But I don’t like the way he is acting in the present especially episode 8. I really hated the way he looked down on her ‘parenting’ and chose to insult her in front of the kid. He really pissed me off there.
    I have been saying from the beginning that these two are going to hurt the kid. It was hard to see PG realizing who his father was. Just hard.
    And for that am mad at both the parents.

    I get where YS is coming from. I have nothing against him.

    3
    2

      My problem with YS is regardless of his feelings for DB, what happens between the parents concerning their child is none of his business. He has no right to tell that man not to come around to try to get to know his kid. JR wasn’t right for yelling at DB in front of PG (I wasn’t even mad at the chop to the neck) but all of that could have been avoided if she didn’t hide her pregnancy. DB is the cause for every problem concerning her son and his father.

      @mayhemf
      I agree he isn’t mature either, none of them are, I just like him better than the others because I think he is less at fault. I wouldn’t say he chose to insult her but he had no business talking about her parenting style like that, he was just jealous though he shouldn’t be. I was still angry at YS when again he chose to solve that through violence, that isn’t the way, and DB didn’t even care, just like she doesn’t care people think she was abandoned, so convenient. That scene she said she didn’t want to accept JR’s money, even though she needs it and it would not be a favor, just part of his duty, but still she refuses so she can keep pretending PG is only hers, like an object, that was worse than anything JR has ever done. He doesn’t call on it because the writer doesn’t want us to think she is that selfish so JR is merely a puppet on a love triangle that was set from the start. He is a bit obsessed with her so he thinks he has a responsibility towards both of them instead of just the kid. Pil-Gu is the most mature character in the whole drama.

I was excited for this batch of dramas but so far everything is meh. Kang Ha Neul’s character in Camellia is not endearing to me as he seems to be with everyone else. I am a sucker for a good action movie but as a drama Vagabond isn’t holding my interest. Soo Hyang and Jang Woo are two of my favorites so if it weren’t for them I would have dropped Graceful Family. ( I knew what the reveal of the second son was going to be as soon as I saw the clothes in the apartment. It has been done in several US and Korean shows) The Great show is ok but I hate when the good guys lose every single time until the very end. All I can say is I’m glad fall tv has started back here. I need something to watch.

I read that some of the subbers at Viki are striking. I’m letting my subscription go. If they have another special I might get it back but otherwise

I mean, I get it. I hold no ill will toward the volunteers however I will not continue to pay when what I want to watch takes weeks for one episode or is not subbed. Especially when it’s because it’s not popular. UGH, I’m going to miss out on quite a few dramas…legally.

    I let mine go because I was upset that the subbers remain unpaid despite them introducing a premium service. And now they’re replacing them with bots? But continuing to charge a premium price? I’m very done with Viki.

      The quality of the subs by the volunteers can NOT be beat. I don’t understand how Viki thinks a bot can compete with that. I do think a lot of it is because since the demise of DramFever (#forevermissed) people flocked to Viki and complain about the speed and incomplete subs. Thereby giving Rakuten a reason to implement their bot.

      The subs for subscription trade was nice until Kocowa came along. It is very unfair and RViki benefits the most now. Kocowa messed up a lot things for the Korean drama community.

      I saw a couple of people talking about Vagabond. I watched Camellia so I hope it fills the wall soon. Vagabond is entertaining but there’s really not much to talk about with an action drama. I want to check out Flower Crew and Pegasus but have to find where they’re subbed.

      I would like to see actors paired with actresses in their age range. I am tired of only seeing actresses in their early twenties getting roles. Then it would appear to be a m9re evenly yolked relationship instead of an inexperienced young woman being lead by an older guy.

    I remember that episode! I’ve often read that purple tea is called “butterfly pea tea”. It’s made from the butterfly pea flowers ….. which I’m assuming are different than bellflowers.

    No. No you are not. But the thing is, it is working. Her ex has already had some sponsor work pulled and a variety show he was attached to might not have him back and the drama he already has an agreement with is very vague.

    Mess all around.

      One of the sponsors is understandable but the other is messed up. I wonder if they regret it now that she clearly is showing she just wants to screw him over. Ehh but then again SK is known for not showing common sense when it comes to celebs.

      He has started filming one drama IIRC so hopefully it won’t affect him too much more.

    I try not to comment when something like this happens, but she’s really making it hard for me to ignore it. I think that there are probably faults on both sides (he seems a bit immature, she seems a bit overbearing), but she’s exacerbating everything with her behavior. This constant flow from her reminds me of my cousins’ mom – it’s literally been 22 years since her divorce, my uncle remarried, and she still won’t let go or stop acting childish. It’s exhausting.

    10
    1

      He hasn’t shown any immaturity as far as this divorce and her behavior makes it hard to believe any of what she’s claiming.

      I know first hand how exhausting it can be. I feel for your uncle even though I’m sure he knows how to ignore her. lol.

      0
      1

        Oh don’t feel for my uncle – he’s an ass. He is more at fault, I think, than her. (Pretty sure he cheated because he got married before the ink was dry on the divorce papers.) But even then, she wasn’t as perfect as she thinks either, and has basically caused her son to barely talk to her – and he is the sweetest, most sensitive guy I’ve met. In her defense, I believe she does have some issues with bipolar disorder and/or depression – but that doesn’t excuse the way she acts all the time, it just heightens her responses.

        I feel like KHS is just behaving really atrociously and acting out – maybe it’s a symptom of being an artist/actor, maybe there’s something more. But whatever it is, her manage/publicist/lawyers need to lock her out of her instagram account before he breaks and spills some dirt of his own. The cat thing was almost comical in how petty it was.

        2
        1

          That’s too bad. Well, every couple isn’t meant to stay together.

          Now with her saying he cheated, Idk what to think but whether he did or not does not excuse her behavior. If he cheated, I don’t understand for the life of me why she is using every excuse not to divorce him.

          0
          1

            Agreed – whether or not he cheated is for them to deal with, privately. I get that she’s getting her petty revenge by tarnishing his reputation, but she’s not helping herself. I feel like she’s just holding this over him because she can, out of spite. And I even get it if she’s feeling hurt and used (not excusing, but I understand where it’s coming from). Part of me wonders if she’s trying to deflect from something she did/doesn’t want aired out for the public. But, regardless of what he did or didn’t do, at least he’s smart enough not to respond to this nonsense publically.

            I also just get this feeling like, while she’s mostly ok for now, it could all backfire very badly all of a sudden, and I kind of worry for her in that case. If it is a mental health thing, she needs help; if it’s a woman scorned thing, she needs therapy. And maybe some time off. But she really needs to stop.

    I feel somewhat disappointed (?) with the way she’s handling this situation as a whole. I thought she would be more mature with it all but this whole thing is a mess and I can’t stand to see any more news about it because she seems to be starting to spiral.

    lol.. i gave up on the cat..

      Crazy part is the cat is his! I’m with you, I give up. If he is such a bad husband why is she trying to hold onto him so bad? I really think she is trying to hold on so she can be the one to end it.

      First she’s retiring to go to school and taking a social media break next thing we know she’s posting about the cat. 🤦‍♀️

        There can be so many things..
        For one, she has been not well for so long that i honestly thing she can’t get pregnant and hence her immense love for animals..

        She is in love.. love doesn’t need logic, fair rationale or anything.. one could be in love with serial killer and lose all common sense.. and i guess going was good when it was good.. or maybe he brings a sense of security which she doesn’t have now (financial, emotional, physical)

        But anyway, the cat post was just weird..
        not gonna comment anymore.. to each their own struggles.. cope up as one wants.. if not, life will figure out a way to make one cope up

    Every statement posted is contradicting the previous one and I wish someone would take away her phone or block her access to the internet. I wish she would seek out some professional help and follow their advice. Wouldn’t a lawyer tell her not to post anything online?

      When you read the comments, her fans are just as crazy as she is. They refuse to admit her statements are contradictory and still claim she is telling the truth and he is the devil. smh.

    I am officially done with Mi sun. When your childish husband and your actual child is calling you out, you need to re evaluate. And Mi hye and the publisher…damn near 100 eps and that pairing still makes no sense. He is gonna be a 2 time divorcee.

      Mi Sun definitely needs to check herself. I’m not done because it seems to come from stress from other areas. People tend to take things out on the ones closest to them. Unfortunately, she will regret it.

      I don’t get why In Suk even initially agreed to the chairman’s order that she leave the country. He has no control over her now. Mi Ri and Tae Ju can fight their own battles and her family needs to fend for themselves.

      Often times love doesn’t make sense so I stopped questioning Mi Hye and Woo Jin.

      I can not believe they are really going to kill off Sun Ja.

        Re: In-suk, remember she overheard what Hye mi and her brother were plotting and she knows that is The Chairman wants to do as well. It is a pretty selfless act coming from someone like In-suk. She is playing into his vanity to not only buy time and handle what she can for Sun ja, but to also use that time to drop the gauntlet, which is totally in character for In suk.
