      When Gab was in his room doing a 3D puzzle before bed, Grandpa went in there to talk to him and Gab was upset and told Grandpa about the pressure of being his only living relative and sometimes things need to be explained to him but in the Gab way of talking.

      Grandpa then took the muffler off his pajama collar (HA!!!) and kicked him out of the house with just is pajamas and no shoes.

        And Gab was last seen joining the homeless people and crying onto his cardboard bed. Iโ€™m hoping someone from Pegasus Market finds him and takes him in…

        I still donโ€™t know what to think of him. One minute heโ€™s talking casually about his money laundering, and next minute heโ€™s crying over his puzzles and fur muffler.

          He is an enigma. You can tell he still just that kid who never developed who he wanted to be as a person. He was told one thing by his Grandpa ( take over the company and that is all) and then another by his guardian Young gu ( who seems like a okay dude and then something snapped and he went to the dark side so to speak), while wanting to try things he never could ( like cooking).

          It is really hard to hate him because he is not a hateful person. He is just a product of an environment ( his Grandpa) who is use to paying people to raise him in what he wants and Gab has shown he is not. Dude just wants a hug.

          2
          2

            He actually reminds me a lot of Myung-Suk from CHIEF KIM (minus the money laundering). I would have loved to see him forced to work as an intern at Pegasus Market and learn how to use his talents (childrenโ€™s play section?) but then the similarities would have been too strong.

        I definitely think so. I didnโ€™t watch Hotel of the Moon, but I can tell Pegasus Market is referencing this previous TvN drama quite a bit with the ghost stories and the little girl Mi-Joo. Maybe it has something to do with that? It seems every time Seok-Gu buys vegetables the moon shines on him, and I still remember how the flyer was whisked around under a moonlit sky in episode 1.

    She fired an arrow that missed the tree trunk entirely, instead it lodged itself into one of the tree roots in the shadows. She cursed and prepared another arrow, until a voice from the shadows startled her. โ€œI suppose you were not aiming at my foot, since that would make you insubordinate and a better archer than we both believe you are.โ€ She dropped her equipment with a gasp as she noticed her mentor laying against the side of the tree trunk, the arrow but a few inches from his boot.

    โ€œMy apologies sir, I did not notice you.โ€ โ€œNo, you usually do not.โ€ He muttered to himself and let out a groan as he sat up against the trunk. She peered at him with a mix of confusion and worry. โ€œAre you hurt, sir?โ€ โ€œNot by your arrow.โ€ He sighed and gave her a weak smile. She was about to enquire further when she noticed the bottle by his side. โ€œYou should not practice this late, go get some rest.โ€ He admonished her gently. โ€œYou should as well if you are hurt.โ€ She quipped back and started walking back towards her equipment.

      Oh how lovely! I have so many questions about these people. What age group is this for? It feels YA. What time period is it? Because they are running around with arrows and thats not an every day occurence. What is she practicing for? A war? A contest? Is this being published somewhere? If he knew she was practicing and he knows that she’s not very good why is he standing where he’s standing? Or was he there first and she didn’t notice and started shooting arrows all willy nilly? AND IS HE HURT? Or is it just the bottle of whatever he has?
      I’m sorry. This wasnt directed towards me. But, I really like stories and I couldnt help but read it.

November was Extraordinary (You).
I was too overwhelmed after watching the last episode to spam my fan wall as I usually do, so I decided to gather my thoughts into a global review in the comments.

    I am missing all the characters already and I felt like I was one of their classmates graduating with them. Graduation is that bittersweet ending of being together, with a tint of hope that we might meet again. It pleased me enough to let the bad things off the hook, like our world building.

    Maybe I just found it hard to grasp, but I still do not fully understand how the manhwa world works and why it works that way. Our Writer ends up being an invisible force, which in itself is an interesting villain because it is abstract, but why are you casually mentioning this in the last episode? There was no need to make Jin Michae and Baek Joon-Hyun, who only wanted to protect their loved ones and their world, look suspicious to add drama. An abstract villain can do that just fine on its own. Now you made me wait to no avail for the reveal of the human Writer who would finally explain everything after getting pelted with whatever I could find first.

    4
    1

      I had suspicions all along that this writer is going to pull a “Lost” on us (i.e. plant intriging questions with no real answers just to keep us watching) and was sad that they went this route.

      1
      0

    The Writer is sort of what we would call fate, and Joon-Hyun explains Haru that he was able to change stages because he really wanted to change Dan-Ohโ€™s life and his. A well-meaning message to live your own life instead of being lived by Fate, but it implies that everybody else failed to change the stage as a punishment for not being brave and determined enough to live their own lives and preferring to obey the Writer/Fate. Not everyone has the same amount of opportunities to do so in the real world. Also, does Dan-Oh actually live her life if Haru changes the stages for her? Following that logic, should she and other aware characters not be able to change stages too?

    4

    Basically, I like ending X, but the drama made me think it was Y for 15 episodes, but nah, it was just X all along. But I am willing to let it slide since our aware characters were content. Joon-Hyun wanted to protect Kyung and accepted him until the end, Kyung has sort of found peace, Jin Michae has Su Hyang, JuDa rules the school without stooping to her former bulliesโ€™ level and Do-Hwa seems ready to move on. Their absence in the college Manwha is painful, but they had their story and share of misery in Secret and some of them also in Flower. They have earned their rest for now, and might appear in the fourth manhwa again.

      I am mad with they did to my characters. If I watched the first 6, and jumped to the last few, it felt like I was watching a different drama. And also, BK meaness and dysfunctional family conveniently disappeared in the 11th hour.

    I love how all the characters that were not aware in Secret turned into the main and supporting characters in the college story and they even switched roles! Y3 became nerds and the nerds became the cool kids. Our male lead Nam-Joo gets demoted from number one to the biggest zero on campusโ€ฆ.and I think thatโ€™s exactly why our female lead Saemi is going to get the guy this time. Nothing like a good enemies to lovers story, with SuChul as the perfect second lead for now! :p The female lead could also be Kyungโ€™s fangirl with the ponytail, she seems more interested in NamJoo than the others and is always in the scenes.

    Shows that end with a graduation always add that bittersweet touch that is enough to bring our emotions. Other than that, I completely agree with your concern but I guess it’s safe to say that I wouldn’t be putting up hopes for fantasy to be ever explained in kdramas. The writers end up making such a complex world that theu are unable to answer their own questions (examples include W, MoA, Circle now even Extra U). Fantasy is a hard genre to write and think. I always thought we’ll never find out the writer because the show was somewhat a metaphor for life and the writer somehow in the context was like a deity or god who decided their fate. I totally liked your theory on Joon Hyung and honestly it would have been better had they chosen to go there.

      Well at this point i didn’t expect any answers but one thing that I still wanted to know was how much independence these characters had. Because they also kept repeating the same lines in shadow as their previous sageuk characters did so in shadow. That for once made me think that they have no control what so ever but they kept repeating how their fate changed. Very confusing…

      5

        Answer is none. Their existence is dependent on the “mercy” of the writer aka fate to even get to appear in his/her next manhwa.

    I hope he gets a better script next time, because this kid can act. I could see pain, relief and closure in this face here. I almost cried in spite of raging against everything else this episode.

    Baek Joon-Hyun, I โ€˜ve got my eyes on you. Yesterday on OT I brought up the idea that he could be the Writer, and while I had only my gut feeling to go on, it turned out @bbstl and @thetinyl have the same thought. So I wanted to figure out why.

    2

      I have a feeling you could be right. I thought it was Dried Squid but it wasn’t. My predictions for next week – it’ll be a happy ending, Kyung realises how awful it is to be with a Danoh who loves him to pieces and somehow helps to get Danoh back…and I’d like to say here that I am always so moved by the Stage story between Baek kyung and Danoh, it’s just heartbreakingly sad, and even Shadow Danoh was crying, when she said, “Why is this so sad when I know it’s just the stage?” It guts me every time to see how much she loved him on stage, and how much it hurt her every time he said those cruel things to her.

      5

      I had honestly thought that we’ll never find out the writer because that is not the direction the show is going for. I thought that the writer is just a being in another universe that has nothing to do with the manhwa except for writing it. But now I think you are quite right. JH has always been there since there giving an eery vibe. Also I think that he might be able to change the stage and control it better when he is in the manhwa. But I just think 2 episodes are way too less to explore him. Either they’ll discuss it and it’d be rushed or they’ll never explore it and leave us on a hint. This theory makes him the most complex and interesting character.

      3
      1

        I could be wrong, but I just want to know JH and the Writer, so his would make stuff easier. ๐Ÿ™‚ The Writer could be a being indeed, but I am hoping for a person so that I can direct my anger at somebody :p I just fear that they will rush things or leave them unexplained as you mentioned.

    At first I thought Jin Michae was the Writer, because he kept his awareness and knowledge a secret until exposed, and opposed firmly to characters becoming self-aware and trying to change things. He was also always lurking and observing the Stage and the Shadow and it unnerved me. But as the show progressed he did open up bit by bit about his tragic experiences, and he started calling out the Writer as well. The EY writers kept his true story a secret until now for dramatic effect, but our poor fairy is merely the first heartbroken victim of the Writer.

    2
    0

    Now, Joon-Hyun is similar to Jin Michae in his Extraordinary You set-up, but we are nearly at the end and the guy is still just โ€œKyungโ€™s little brotherโ€. We already know that extras have more freedom in the Shadow, so writing himself into the story with little set-up makes controlling a lot easier.

    2
    0

    Speaking about control, I seriously underestimated him. We perceive Kyung and his dad as dangerous because they lash out and use violence. It is a knee jerk reaction out of fear to the loss of control. Kyung wants to keep Dan-Oh, his father wants to keep his business. Even Jin Michae looked suspicious because he reacted strongly out of fear whenever changes were about to occur that he could not control. I read somewhere that you should fear a calm and composed villain, because it means that they KNOW they are in full control of everything. Beanies, have you ever seen Joon-Hyun react strongly to anything?

      He reacted strongly when he tried to break up the fight between Kyung and Dad in the hospital lobby.

    Whenever something happens in both comics, it looks like he forces himself to react to it, as if he knew beforehand or does not care enough. He pleads not to change things and acts like a nice guy to make himself look harmless to others, so that he can keep them in line. His father is the best example. CEO Baek is a man you cannot disobey without getting hurt. There goes Joon-Hyun, physically restraining his dad in the Shadow to protect Kyung (?) and living to tell the tale. Or he gently warns his dad to back off or even distracts him with an innocent look whenever things are getting out of hand. Without ever losing his calm. I had chills when he just went up to Haru and casually threatened him.

    2
    0

    It would not surprise me if Joon-Hyun turned his real life world into manhwas. He both seems to love and resent Kyung, and writing your enemy as the despicable main character in your own story seems like a childish but plausible coping mechanism. I admit that a younger version of myself used to do that. As soon as everyone became self-aware in Flower, he decided to write another story, but his time with Kyung more in the background as to not make it too obvious. Unfortunately for him everyone became self-aware again, so he has to quickly wrap up Secret and is forced to recycling and carelessness in the process, as even some characters have pointed out. He even added Haruโ€™s changes to the story!

    5
    2

      Yes, I support this very much! It’s seemed to me that he was the perfect candidate to be turning his less-than-perfect life situation into a story in order to try to gain control over it.

      2
      0

      I’m feeling this thought very much, except the only reason why I’m still hesitant to full commit to JH being the writer is… why add new characters if you’re still just going to focus on the old ones? Why is JH not bothering to pay attention to his new leads JD and NJ? Why not recast all the Flower folk in their old roles in a new setting and see what happens?

      1
      0

    When he admits to Kyung that he is self-aware, Kyung calls him out for enjoying their family set-up and the fact that it makes him suffer. Joon-Hyun, showing some guilt, replies that he never viewed the situation that way and is sure things will turn out all right. Kyung merely replies that Joon-Hyun was created by the Writer to torture him, and Joon-Hyun looks down like Kyung just exposed him. Is he the Writer? Did he feel guilty about what he was inflicting on Kyung? Or did he start panicking because things were not going the way he wanted them written (again)?

    Aw. Don’t be lonely. There are a whole bunch of us, tagging
    @mayhemf @msrabbit @azzo1 @13infamyss @chasingbears @gadis @sensationalfantasy – Kyung shippers who liked Baek Kyung because he was so fascinating. Not sure whether they’re still watching…guys, are you still watching? I was very disappointed the episodes that aired after Haru remembered who he was after he came back different. They were repetitions and the Haru-Danoh romance was just so bland. Thank God they had Juda wake up to her true nasty self. She made the episodes bearable. Kyung was flawless as usual, and I got scolded for liking him because he was mean and a bad guy…the thing is, it’s not that I want Danoh to end up with him, it’s that I find his character so fascinating, his character is so layered, and not as one-dimensional as Haru’s. The writer delves so much into his inner psyche I can’t help feeling he’s the writer’s favourite creation.

    4
    4

      Do you think Kyung’s psyche is plumbed or is he simply a mean bad guy (almost) all the time? I’m thinking that the standard meanie with maybe a heart of gold, or a heart that Can be turned by the heroine, is pretty common. I’m pretty sure I love Kyung because of the actor, yes I’m definitely that shallow ☺️

      1
      1

        It might be a common set-up, but I hope it comes true in a platonical sense. Kyung could be friends with Dan-Oh, Haru, Do-Hwa and many more people, but he has to deal with his issues, let them in and open up to them first. I see potential, and that is why I want redemption for him, but I am afraid I will not get what I want.

        1
        1

          Yes, I just want Kyung to get the chip off his shoulder, be friends with people and go off to college a less angry guy. But you’re right, his angst is written in pretty deep (I have a bad feeling about us getting the ending we want).

          1
          0

      Yup I agree, Haru is a little flat but Kyung is layered. Yes, he is basically pushing DO to like her in the shadows but even other things like the reveal in last episode, it what adds more depth to his character. Also I think Ju Da’s story right now is probably the most interesting one. She likes someone else but she doesn’t want to change her fate because she will get the happy ending what so ever.

    why would writer even be in the show? he is a real human being..
    at max if story must go the cliche route, writer would have created a narrator or a character,who speaks writer’s thought..

    but even that character is NOT the writer..

    that would be such an illogical angle to the story, if this drama plans to do “reveal” that one of the characters is writer

        I’m not watching but I like the cast so was considering it, that’s why I asked. I didn’t realise it was a family drama!

    Hypothetically, he could be more than a casual brat & catch her when she was being thrown out of his family’s company…. a DID(Damsel in distress) moment is always a good place to start.
    I don’t mind this unconventional way though…. I’m sure it’ll be rife with misunderstandings, anger & banter before it goes into family drama, crime & smooth love sailing.

    I don’t know if I will keep watching even if I love these two and Ye Ji Won. There’s already enough makjang for me in Beautiful Love Wonderful Life 😅
