I haven't finished RDTH. Forver paused on ep 2. Does it get better?

1

@kayedrama RDTK is one of my favorite medical dramas! I don't really like medical dramas tbh, but this one is one of those that make me stick until the end. It also gives me an opportunity to discover Yang Sejong. I fell in love with him for the first time there though his character is a bit bratty.

It took me until episode 6 before I was really invested in RDTK, and then it was my favorite--until Goblin, of course. ? Still in my top 5.

Yes, I've only good things about RTDK. Not a med drama fan too, but will try to pick it up this weekend. Thanks :)

Under-age reckless biker (don't know whether he has any learner license or not). Young Blood wants some fun at the expense of others life. Causes accident. People severally injured( many could have died). 1 innocent guy+ friend did die. Cry over dead friend but shows no remorse over his own acts.(no mention of inured citizens and 1 lost human being). Gets Violent. Destroy school property. Break school rules. Still Drives reckless and cause minor harm to the heroine again. Fights with other bikers in the middle of the road. waaaah.
This is just few initial episodes. I need to say anymore about him?

Jin-Kyu the cheobal looks like a innocent being compared to this dude.

Hi CatoCat! I follow some of your comments and notice that you are very selective about your drama preference. You know, you have quite a good taste. However, some people (me for example) may not be as selective as you are. Us seeing a drama in different light is very possible and I do find treasure of what you find trash. This world has a lot of space for each people to love thing they love afterall, doesn't it?

"Did i threw rotten eggs on any viewer?"

Do I have to answer in more blatant manner? Because of my limited range of English vocabulary, I definitely can't do that. If someone talks to me in sarcasm, I won't get it.

I do hope we can have smart discussion about a character. That is, talking about both of the character's good side and bad side. Now that you have pinpointed Taewoon's bad point, what do you think his good point is? Unless we analyze both side, it won't make a fair and proper character analysis.

He wasn't the one who caused the accident, though. It was Joonggi who got distracted by the phone call and almost ran into oncoming traffic, then both of them swerved and the bus tried to avoid them. He wasn't fighting with the other bikers either, they were going after him, and Eunho got a shock from the bikers coming from both sides and lost her balance.

He is by no means a flawless character, but if you want to assess him, you have to look at the character as a whole and not cherry-pick and/or misread events to present a one-note judgment.

Also, it's true the show didn't confirm whether he has a license, but he's not under-aged. You can get a motorcycle license in Korea at 16, which is why you sometimes see high schoolers working part-time as deliverymen.

Now i know how Tae's name wasn't in any news. He was riding bicycle while Joong-ki's bike was streaming fire and causing all the accidents. This is some woahdude level defense.
Taw is such an innocent and nice guy How dare those 2 low-life bikers picked fight with the Prince. Eun-Ho is such a dimwit. Everyday falls here and there.

A character who always cries over his dead friend doing dangerous acts on a road. yeah. yeah. I completely misjudged him and misread his intentions. We should certify Tae being the model citizen of the society and school is den of illegal pratices and only 1 hero is fighting all that and so Tae Deserves Model student award too.

@sangmaharani and @purpleteapot , you guys are great. i wish i can be as rational as you when explaining things like this.

7

technically the points that you raise are not wrong..
No ifs and buts, that was rash bike riding..

But given a high schooler.. its a story of a character.. his anger, his struggles.. and his emotional journey.. for kids friends are the universe.. and he lost both of his friends that day.. now he is back to realm of happiness with Eunho.. which brings about the positive changes.. (owning up the responsibilities of his actions)

Rest blame the world too if they keep giving rich people's kids free passess..

End of the day, he is flawed.. but the story being told is interesting for some people.. some see that at the core he is not a bad human being..

I do have an issues with his quick to threaten/fight mentality at times. He isn't perfect by any stretch. However, as @purpleteapot has pointed out, you were way off on your facts with some of your points.

The guy is teenager dude, you forgot that about your equation. And what's good in every story is the character development(e.g. Latest episode). If they're perfect, how can we relate us humans? Imagine if his doing drugs, cause for some teenagers it's a factor. Just saying.

Hi Beanies !

Dramas became a huge part of my and other Beanies' life so I have a question : which dramas had a strong impact on you and on your life ?
Dear My Friends, Reply 1988 and 1997 made me treasure more my friends. What Happened to the Family gave me a glimpse of what it feels to have a loving and heart-warming family even if I'm not close to my family.

Happy Friday :D

Required fields are marked *

I'd have to say Cheese in the Trap, Reply 1997 and Reply 1988! (I just realized that they're all slice-of-life dramas) ? CITT is the first drama which I found quite hard to move on. I particularly loved Hong Seol's character and she's now the heroine whom I identify with. With the Reply franchise, I loved all the character developments and how everyday life may seem mundane, but when you look at the bigger picture, they become so significant in your life.

Required fields are marked *

Slice-of-life dramas live up to their genre. Hong Seol is a great character that feels real and I even began reading the webtoon to see what's happening to her.
Reply franchise is good and relatable. I recommend it to my non-dramas watching friends and they all love it :D You explained exactly what is appealing about it !

Required fields are marked *

I actually wrote an essay why Hong Seol is such a relatable heroine! haha
It's hard for me to recommend the Reply series to my friends since they're not so into slice-of-life dramas (and I respect the fact that it's not everybody's cup of tea).

I really treasure Full House with such warmth. Not really because the story made an impact on my life, but because it was my introduction to Kdrama land. And since then my life has been such a happy pill. Whatever bad thing happens, I now know I have a safe heaven to go to ?

Misaeng as well. I am Jang Geu Rae, personality wise. I did not suffer like he did. But I saw myself in him.

This show also made me realize how my complaints of having too much work is nothing compared to other countries where workers stay until late at night, drink with coworkers, and then be looked down upon.

8
reply

Required fields are marked *

Misaeng. I cried. So much. Even at the happy moments. That was how much it got to me. I did not experience Jang Geurae's situation in real life but it felt like I did while watching the drama. It felt like I was the invisible member of their team. The last part when they were riding through the desert and Siwan's voiceover talked about life's paths and roads, I had a serious life reflection moment. Still thinking about it now.

Now I want to rewatch Misaeng.

Required fields are marked *

Misaeng - because I think there is a JGR in every intern,employee,contract worker. That show did change how I see work and colleagues.
Reply 88 - I just started it, Deok Seon's rant over being the middle child probably came from my life.
Dear My Friends -This show was so relatable that I stopped watching it after 6 episodes but whatever I saw changed my outlook of those around me.
CITT - It didn't really affect me but HS is so relatable to many girls. Very apt and thoughtfully written character.

Definitely Reply 1997 and 1988 and What happened to my family and Father is strange made me treasure my friends and family and my everyday moments with them. My favourite dramas are the ones that have a deep impact on me and actually made me a better person. Also I found Seol in the Cheese in the trap webtoon to be a character I found very relatable with her worries and anxieties. I love slice of life dramas for their ability to find the joy and beauty in everyday life. I need to watch more of them.

Goblin for me. It's take on life and death struck a chord with me. There are a lot of quotable quotes in that drama but one of my faves is: “The ones left behind should live even harder.

I regretted not watching Goblin earlier. I checked the synopsis and I seriously didn't understood anything and it didn't made sense to me but when I got to binge it I didn't regret and perhaps the reason why I enjoyed it so much was I was going thru some tough life-and-death times. Yes, the drama's got some of the loveliest script I've watched. :)

I would have loved if you watched this live! I bet you and I would have had great discussions. The script was on another level. Did you get to read the recaps? I still go back and read them. There are so many deep thoughts there. I was always, like, these people really get it! It was a wonderful little recap community!

I think just the beginning and end recaps I've read. Also, I've never been active commenter before the recap so even if I Iive watched I would be only lurking - If I was alive while waiting for the next episode after all the cliff-hangers. lol.

And my favorite line--for a reason that I haven't figured out yet--was "You had a hard time growing up." And the "I Love You." Deokwa said to Kim Shin after giving him the credit card! And the other line I just love is; "If God only gives you no more than you can handle, then he must have thought too highly of me." No other drama had affected me as much as Goblin.

Goblin has a lot of life/living quotable quotes. Bonus: most were narrated by Gong Yoo and his wonderful voice. Double... No triple the effect on me.

Happy Friday Beanies :) Though it's not weekend for me yet, I still have to go to work tommorow..

Curious about beanies' fav, would you like to tell me : What's your most favorite OST from 2017 dramas (choose only one song if you mind ^^), and why?

So far, my most favorite came from Rebel OST. I love all of them but if I have to choose one, then I'll choose Sangsahwa/Magic Lily, sung by Ahn Ye Eun. I'm drowning in feelings whenever I listen to this song. It's sad, heart-piercing, yet beautiful. I could replay the studio ver, live stage ver, the instrumental ver and listen to it for hours..

I realized that through years of drama watching, you can't help but notice other factors about a drama like its OST. I have only watched super few dramas this year. Currently, it's a tie between Fight My Way's OST and School 2017!

Required fields are marked *

Nooooo..... how could you ask me to choose, it's like asking who is my favorite child? Kekeke...

If I have to choose an OST from this year, it would be the second OST from Tomorrow With You, aptly titled Tomorrow With You by Kim Feel. Just so melancholic, my kind of music.

Special mention - 7 Day Queen OST's Dreaming by Fromm - another melancholic song that rips my heart apart

My favorite would be Chicago Typewriters's Satellite but I think that CT, Seven Day Queen and Forest of Secret have equally good ost's and instrumentals.

I've too many OSTs from 2017 dramas that I love. But if I have to choose one, I'd go for Duel's OST : Nightmare by Mad Soul Child. I've been listening to that song for everyday nowadays.

Can Goblin be counted as 2017? Because its premiere wasn't that long before year end, if I recall it right. My favorite OST of the year are:

1. Goblin: each song in this drama is simply legend. How can someone not recognize Never Far Away's guitar intro?
2. School 2017: clapping hand BGM is really captivating and also Gugudan's ending OST really fits the mood.
3. TLAHL: While I think the songs are rather weak for music-themed drama (Heartstring imo has it better), Joy and Crude Play boys makes them so easy listening.

But in the end, old drama's OSTs have special place inside me. Bogoshipda (Kim Beom Soo), Sincerely (Yoon Chang Gun), Emergency Room (Izi), From Beginning to the End (Ryu), My Memory (Ryu), all of Yiruma pieces, You and I are Fools (Stay), etc always bring sentimental value.

I watch drama beside my Mom and Grandma as kid. When I've grown up, I vaguely remember the drama plot, but the OST still lingers in my mind. Not only once or twice I was so frustated for suddenly humming familiar-notes-I-dont-remember-what-song. And I am tone deaf that I can't get people understand what song I'm on search. ?

Also, old songs resonate in me more because the singers are simply singing and there are no such things as synthesizer and autotune.

Sorry for the long rubbish oot.

If Goblin is counted in 2017 then I'd choose Sam Kim's Who are You. Love how it feels epic especially when used for Kim Shin's scenes.

Never Far Away is epic too. I will always remember that hero walk in the fog (and the second round that's so hilarious leeks and all lol).

Good question, @keiru! If we're talking this year so far, as much of a train wreck as the show was, I couldn't stop listening to the Introverted Boss OST for weeks. It worked really well within the show itself, and there honestly wasn't a single song that I didn't like. More recently, I've been loving the Suspicious Partner and Seven Day Queen OSTs - I alternate them to balance the upbeat and the melancholy!

Well, yesterday Viki announced they are fully in bed with Kocowa and you can get that other service's exclusive content by upgrading Viki Pass to a higher tier of premium. It ends up being about $10 a month which is comparable to DramaFever's original premium price so I just did it. I read people had trouble streaming Kocowa and that their app was terrible but if I can get the content from Viki on my Roku then I'm down for it. Plus it's been killing me I was missing a Namgoong Min show.

I won't do those unlicensed sites. I went to one once to look at what they had and had attack ads immediately pop up and take my tablet to a completely different site. When I went back it just did it again! They have to be virus minefields on PC.

When it comes to Unlicensed sights, it's best if you download addblocker or some version of it to keep it from redirecting you. Some sites its fairly easy if you don't have addblocker, others are not.

No I was on a phone and the browswer had built in pop up blocking and it was not effective. I couldn't even scroll down the front page before being on some website with a gibberish url with a "warning your phone is infected click here to download virus cleaner" thing. And you can't back up from those either, it's like it wipes your history. Crazy.

I did this too - for the same reasons. I like to watch shows on my TV with the Roku. Kocowa couldn't do that, plus I heard the terrible reviews. Oh well, at least we have more access.

Read about this too.

I noted that if you have the standard Viki pass, you will also be able to access the Kocowa content, but after a 19-day period. I can live with that. I'd much rather use the Viki interface.

The only drag for me is that I won't be able to participate in recap discussions for those Kocowa exclusive shows due to the delay.

Btw, I wonder what all this will mean for DramaFever?
