Drama Hangout: Penthouse 2

We’re bringing back a feature that had been on a little break: the Drama Hangout! We wish we could cover everything, but when we’re not recapping or weecaping a show, this open thread can be your home away from home.

The first drama to get a Drama Hangout is the currently airing Penthouse 2. This is a place for you to discuss anything and everything related to the drama. Who has the best-worst disguises? Who is the best lip-syncer singer? How does Kim So-yeon always look so fabulous?

We’re starting with Penthouse 2, but there will be more Drama Hangouts to come in the very near future.

Spoilers may be rife, so Beanie beware.

Drama gets crazier each week. I think writernim might retire after season 3. How can she ever create a makjang to top Penthouse? I thought The Last Empress was enough crazies in a drama and wonder how can writernim top that...but Penthouse appears and it's jam-packed with crazy parents + offspring and some hidden characters not yet revealed 🤣.

Kudos to writernim for creating this makjang world. It's really a place that is beyond normal human comprehension. Hahahaha.

Cool, I didn't realize The Last Empress is by the same writer. Now that you mentioned it, I could see similarities, unpredictable plot and all. Also kudos to the directing/editing that kept up with all the twist and turns.

I have theories...

I've been following Penthouse before it aired aka when Sungrok was cast as Ju Dan Tae and got 💔 when he suddenly stepped down...but all is well because he returned with Kairos, which was amazing! Watch Kairos~~~

Back to Penthouse...I made a conspiracy theory that the twins were cast in the early stages when Sungrok was still Dantae. The justification for my theory: the twins match Sungrok and Lee Jiah looks and both are soooo tall. Hahahaha

So....I'm waiting for a plot twist where Sungrok appears and he was planning this alongside Na Aegyo (Lee Jiah's new character) and also claim the twins are theirs 🤣. Then Dantae will be left all alone with no wife, no kids and no family and possibly no money too. Let's syphon all his money and give it to the poor ala Na Wang Shik in The Last Empress 😄.

My theory is very far-fetched...but hey...one can dream. I need new Sungrok drama news fast before I create more theories to insert him in other on air dramas 🤧🥲.

Ooohh drama hangout! I finished watching this week's episodes.

The cleverness and strategies between the 'good' guys and the bad ones are uneven right now. Seo Jin and Dan Tae are still rich, winning, and escaping from their crimes. I liked the first season more because Shim Su Ryeon and Logan had stealthily made their moves and took them down by notches until the finale. But now that they're back(?), I'm hoping they'll have a smart and strong offense.

... Logan had one job that he couldn’t do right every time. He just can’t protect anyone, he can only take revenge which he still haven’t succeeded on yet😃
I have to agree though, I miss shim su ryeon and as at now, the screen time for Logan is too small!!!!!!

So, should we have a running Talley of our favorite moments? The most utterly ridiculous? The most surprising? The most...take your choice?

I thought that having one of the ladies of Penthouse working at a public bath as a bathing attendant was really strange - is this going to become a significant point somewhere in the plot???

The most precious moment for is when JDT gets this admiring grin on after figuring out something OYH did.

Acting wise I guess I liked the scenes between CSJ and EB and also the bar scene between CSJ and YC. Those scenes were so intense.

The utterly ridiculous scene was CSJ chunking down the sim card and the extra crunching sound. Why did she even eat sim card instead of SD card

I dropped my jaw when she started chomping on the SIM card - that was so unexpected. Btw, don’t people in SK use the cloud and/or laptops to backup their phones? This nonsense where only a single copy of critical data/video/whatever exists really needs to go away.

Well, she certainly has a different attitude and demeanor, that's for sure. However, something tells me it's going to end up being Shim Soo-ryeon pretending to be this new character.

With this show, we have to be ready for anything!

The drama does seem to imply that she is SSR pretending to be Na Gyeo On, so that we *squee* still can have more intense scenes of SSR and Logan.
But how can that happen ? I don't want another resurrection. So could it be that the dead one is Na ? Maybe a switcheroo happened somewhere along the way in S1 and Na is the one got killed by JDT.

I don’t get why people are shipping Su ryeon and Logan.
Like I don’t get that vibe at all and it feels like I’m the only one who doesn’t ship them, I mean that’ll be a weird relationship if it ever happens.

As much as I hate Seo Jin, I couldn’t stand the abuse!

Logan's intense, longing "I want to love and protect you, but I can't have you" looks that gets me every time. Can't help but feel for this puppy.
Actually SSR has not shown any romantic feelings for Logan but we are just rooting for her to get a happy ending.

Helpppp. I read SSR as Shin Sung Rok 🥲

About logan and suryeon, i dont ship them, as I feel they have so little connection and I don't see sparks flying when they are on screen. Also....he's her daughters adopted bro which makes their relationship weird 🙃.

I feel many are shipping them because there's no one else to ship. The Penthouse men are garbage and Suryeon is married to Ju Dan Tae who is the the worse piece of garbage among all 😌.

I really wish Shin Sung Rok had taken this role too. He is the only actor that can make evil looks good. I'd imagine by this time, we would be shipping him with all the ladies of Penthouse !

Uhm Ki Joon play an evil guy well, but he doesn't have this ability. His acting here is pretty much the same as in The Defendant with Ji Sung.

If Sungrok was still Dantae, the character could be very different from UKJ dantae. And he'll probably be rootable and I'll probably be a Rok-Dantae apologist 🤣.

It's quite unfortunate that he had to step down after confirming due to schedulling conflict. But Kairos was so good and a great addition to his portfolio. Watch Kairos too @kai55 😎.

I like kairos so much that I just couldn’t imagine if he had dropped that for penthouse. I mean this drama is my crack but still not the same.
Remembering SSR character in My love from the star and I shuddered 😱

I’m pushing (in my dreams, sigh) for a parallel universe spin off, Penthouse Empress.

This week was a roller coaster ride for sure!! CSJ being physically abused by JDT is absolute nonsense. Like he was literally whipping her! WTF! He is complete trash and I can't wait for all the characters to bring him down. There isn't a single character that he hasn't attacked. Shocked to learn that RoNa is really the daughter of Ha YoonChul. Why did YoonHee wait until he was in jail to reveal that he is really RoNa biological father! Couldn't she have revealed that to him when they got married and the 3 of them became a family? Neways seems like RoNa is alive as it was distinctly her voice calling SeokHoon from the hospital. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen next week.

Many thoughts after Ep 10:
1) The scenes where CSJ is like the evil stepmother being forced to do Cinderella's house chores was hilarious, if only JDT evil acts were handled more delicately, so that it is more black comedy style, instead of literal abuse and violence.

2. Is it really Ro Na on the phone ? If it is, I hope there is a good explanation coming up. It seems like Youn Hee has been playing an act, because she would be in the know, otherwise Ro Na would call her mom first instead of Seok Hoon.

3. I wish there are more reveals on what happened 2 years ago between Na/Su Ryeon/JDT. Apparently there were switcheroos happening all along in S1 and am dying to know which parts those are.

4. Lastly, that hug between Logan and Su Ryeon ! So precious and it lasted for like 5 seconds and they are busted. Ugh !

“ if only JDT evil acts were handled more delicately, so that it is more black comedy style. “

That would be so much more entertaining!

“ Is it really Ro Na on the phone ?”

The body count in this show keeps going down... other than the original death, is anyone else actually dead? Is Na really dead or did the two of them make a deal?

Yes indeed it was very well done! Everyone is on board to catch Joo DanTae. Once again CSJ remains my fave actor on this show, she's always outdoing herself with expressions. I just hope JDT stays in jail this time and doesn't weasel his way out. But we're only ep 11 and not sure if this season is going until ep 20 so we still have a lot of ground to cover. Can't wait for tmrw ep12

Nah ... I think the ending is brilliant. It had to be done, if everything ends nice and rosy, there would be no need for S3. Now I'm really hype up to see how Oh Joo Wan's character connects to the story.

Just my prediction for S3. I think Jenny's father will replace JDT as the big evil. I am looking forward to this actor can be both comical and evil. Oh Joo Wan's character will replace Logan as Sim Soo Ryeon's emotional link, although how exactly I cannot guess. I hope he doesn't turn out to be her first husband back from dead, he looks too young for that.

I actually need a breather from this, so it's perfect that S3 starts June!

He can never be the dead husband. That death was grotesque enough for him to survive it.
