Yup exactly. No ones getting rid of the fluff and “clean”. In the past 2 months there was Dali, Hometown, Yumi’s Cells. Sageuks are all “clean” as well. So are the weekend family dramas.

Why can’t there be variety and options so everyone can enjoy different genres? It’s selfish to want everything to be one type because that’s the type that you enjoy. It’s simply a matter to bypassing something that doesn’t suit your taste.

With all due respect, why should the KDrama ‘formula’ be immutable? That’s a reactionary view. It should change and adapt as all human endeavours do. There is still plenty of vanilla content for those who prefer it but it is bizarre to wish for this suspension of reality as an all encompassing state of affairs. SK is a complex society with many nuances. It is reductionist and infantilising to expect adherence to one formula.

Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching

by DB Staff

All that you've mentioned (approaching Lisa, slapping her, etc) were from the first part of the story, where even in Lisa's words she has "made peace" with Mimi already.

I mentioned those things as they are not isolated events, but sequential scenes that contributed to the present state of Lisa. When Lisa bribed JY to do her work then as a teacher HW should have discussed with both or with Lisa's parent about the issue, but she used it to tell JY to stop being a doormat. HW is a great observer, so she very well knows that any change in JY's attitude would make obsessed Lisa to lose her mind. Thus far, she has been using every single person to her advantage and every move of her is calculated which HJ mentions at the end of Ep.1.

Heck, HW has now in the second part become a bystander.

Just because HW isn't currently using Lisa to rile up HJ, should the repercussions of her past manipulations not happen? Infact, HW only wanted to use Lisa as a stepping stone for her revenge, but the ripple effect of her actions is the online hate post. The scapegoat all along here has been JY in her plans.

Here in the second part is where Lisa became aware of her Mom's affair coz she saw them (gallery, wedding and hospital), which triggers her childhood memories of her time in Ireland and seeing her Mom's affair. That has no direct correlation with HW, even the indirect is flimsy at best.

I already mentioned, HW was the one who invited Lisa to the gallery and before the wedding she tells Lisa that WJ was in love with another woman. Are these not manipulations? HW has been kindling the memory which Lisa would have forgotten otherwise. You have agreed that all these events have triggered her childhood memory and that exactly is what HW wanted to achieve.

So yeah, I am calling you out on underhandedly giving HJ and WJ a pass. It just seems that people being harder on HW's toxic behaviour than Woo Jae & Hee Joo's?

I am not giving leeway to both HJ and WJ, but rather explaining that HW's interference has been playing a major role in Lisa's mind, so you should stop repeating "free pass".

"It's actually quite scary than a lot of people voluntarily lower their integrity & ethical standard for the one who caused traumas than for the victim toxic behaviour resultant of several betrayals."

No amount of misery is an excuse to cause sufferings to others. Physical or mental, willingly harming others is a violence. You can't just name it as victim mentality.
