    he is so adorable (i am really begging god here that it is not another case of a demented perosnality behind the screens).. but with coffee prince, radio star and other variety experiences, i’d expect him to be a cocky guy (i mean comeone he knows he is god level handsome and specially in Korea) .. but he is such a hard working kid

      I know what you mean. I never like to watch too much of an actor outside the drama. Watching behind the scenes is probably the most I’d do especially when I am in love with the drama. I don’t watch variety either. But from snippets of Coffee Prince and the BTS of this show, NJH seems like a pretty shy if not awkward guy. That bit of awkwardness can easily come off as cold or aloof. But when he’s put to work, he seems to get into it immediately and it’s like that is when he’s most comfortable. I dunno but this is the impression I get.

        ya.. no i phrased it wrong.. i’d expect him to be a cocky guy.. but the variety shows show he is not.. i don’t get cold vibes from him.. but that he is a shy, introvert person.. which is so wonderful because.. well you know when you are drop dead handsome, moreover in Korea, you very well might grow up with a self of entitlement

        I pretty much could have said this exact same thing. Totally agree

To the writers of Dazzling: It was clear from the beginning you were going to tell whatever story you wanted to tell, genre and expectations and conventions be damned. That’s so much of what I loved about it, even when it meandered and seemed odd or disjointed. I could never have imagined the courageous story you were actually trying to give us. Ya’ll got guts. And my respect.

      We find out Hye Ja actually has Alzheimer’s, and the drama is an imagined mix of her current life as an old woman, and her sad life as her younger self.

        sweet.. of the imaginary people, is anyone beside her currently? or is she in a hospital iamgining?

          We’re not exactly sure, yet, since there are two episodes to go. We know she was in many of the places she thought she was, but that the current NJH character is some imagined form of her doctor mixed with her dead husband (it’s as heartbreaking as it sounds). Interactions with people in the senior center she visited, and her immediate family are most likely all real. (She imagined her son and daughter in law were her parents, though, and that her grandson was her brother.) We are all eagerly awaiting more details!

I kept wanting her to save him. But I love it more, that just like she told him in the very beginning, he just needed to be more generous with himself. #Dazzling

    I loved them. And this scene. And this drama.

    I love that it’s so much more than a romance. I love that their connection is grounded in hope. I love that he found that he didn’t need someone to save him, but in being there for each other, he found that he could save himself. I love that in this drama, being there for someone, being present, being kind, being a support for others, giving love, being vulnerable and being soft, waking up in the morning and facing the world even when it hurts to breathe.. I love that it’s portrayed as being strong, that is something that takes immense courage.

    It’s beautiful, and it’s real, and I love it.

      YES X 100. What I also love is that the most remarkable thing about Hye ja was that she loved and accepted herself. You see it in the young Hye ja, and then you see her find it again as a halmoni Hye ja. That was what made her so “dazzling”, and what drew Joon ha to her from the very beginning. It was this self love that allowed her to be so generous with Joon ha. In the end it was both how much she loved herself and how much she cared for him that helped him realized he could also love himself.

      Hold me, Bams.

In lieu of writing my thoughts on the end of Crowned Clown, Imma just post a sample of our comments from the live watch. Pretty much sums it up. @bammsie @adieunoire

He really needs to stop looking like this whenever he thinks about her, or none of us are going to make it to the end of this drama alive.

    Ugh. Those eyes… that look… ughhhhhh. But honestly, Iโ€™m not sure whether is it because I started and caught up with RIABB, but the flow is getting boring for me…

      It’s got lots of pacing and plot issues. And it does seem like the characters are circling the drain. I’m hoping we get a jolt in 8!

      PS I still love it despite all its flaws

This puppy. He is so effortlessly charming. I am really starting to love these two.

    The subs not using noona took away from some of the beauty of this scene. He sees her as DanI and not just Noona so easily.

      You’re saying in other parts of the scene? Cause in the is part he just calls her Dan-i for once.

        Yep, that’s what I mean, because he switches when she says how much she likes being called by her name. Never would’ve caught that as a newbie.

I really don’t envy all the awards shows this year having to choose best actor between Jin Gu and Jin Gu.

This is the sageuk we’ve been waiting for. Directing, writing, acting, cinematography, editing, even the dang music, it’s all there. I’m grinning like the clown and laughing like the crazy king. Jin gu, youโ€™ve done it again. You, too, Jin gu.

SKJ as NS III has to do so much with so little expression. Yet every emotional beat hits straight through the heart. I’m running out of words to describe how good his acting is in this.

    It can cover the bad review from his last drama, he prove it here that he deserve the lead role

    I agree. He’s doing an amazing job. I don’t understand how people even confuse Shin and Shinnamon because they look so different even though they’re played by the same person. And the way he portrays Shinnamon’s emotions is beautiful.

    I haven’t watch this drama and I mean to. I’ve liked him since Cheese In The Trap, my first and only SKJ drama. Since then, I read criticisms of how awful his acting is. As I never watched him in anything else besides CITT, I had wondered if that was a fluke. Thankfully, it’s not.

      Nah, Entourage was the fluke. I think it was bad writing and directing though more so than acting.
      I feel like SKJ does best if given a challenge to rise to.

When your director stays on your perfect face for 15 seconds straight to capture all your subtle changes in emotion you know he believes in you as an actor.

    The change in his face and eyes was heartbreaking. He is really hitting out of the ballpark with his skill in this role.
    Kudos to this young man!

I know Gramps is a trash can. He deserves to die lonely and sad. But when Shinbot decided to hug and comfort him anyway, damned if I didn’t tear up.

Our little bot wrestled with who he was vs. what was programmed into him, and decided he wanted to be the kind of person who would hug someone when they cried. That’s beautiful.

    In my mind choosing to be kind even if people are faulty and they don’t necessarily deserve it may be the whole point of the story

    I find it immeasurably sad that he spent his entire life trying to create the perfect little sociopath only to realise at the end he was completely wrong about everything.
