review?

    A couple of my kdrama doctor friends watched it with their older kids and liked it. But I think it’s more for the “Netflix” audience, if you know what I mean.

Watching marvel’s dr strange..

This is bad..

Like a magical horror slasher..

Have they run out of villains

This is westview all over, why did she even fight agatha

    Hmm.. The way I understand it, it was the Darkhold taking the reins. During that scene with Charles taking over her head for a while, he found Wanda buried underneath the rubble of her trauma. Wanda wasn’t emotionally stable when she took the Darkhold from Agatha. Plus the epilogue from WandaVision showed her poring over the text almost nonstop. So it’s no wonder the darkness consumed her. After all, Sinister Strange was no different. At least with Wanda, she woke up and realized it herself when she saw the fear on her children’s faces. Which was why she destroyed the throne so the Darkhold can never tempt her again.

killer shopping list, is it not the child’s father.. shady.. was there when first murder happened with the police (it was a weird scene with this one man popping up and asking police about it), then second murder

The only problem is, drama makes it obvious since ep 1 that this child’s story and his dad’s story and his missing mom.. All so shady.. But in a suspense show you would not give away the killer so early on

But then only 8 episodes, and until 3.. He is not even in consideration as a suspect…

        Crazy Love has gotten a lot better as it goes
        along, I struggled at the start and fast forwarded a bit 😄 but now I’m enjoying it. The wait is annoying though

    In the past week or so, I rewatched Jealousy Incarnate (Dare to Dream on Netflix). The second watch is even better than the first time, reaffirming it as my number one romcom though not a conventional one. And with a great story structure and interesting characters, even 24 eps are not quite enough – the ending is just so very satisfying. More suitable for mature audience though. Best work of Jo Jung-suk – HP is a light piece for his substantial talent.

    Then I tick off my to-watch list by starting Through the Darkness last night – so far so good.

    The drought should be over now with Our Blues and My Liberation Notes starting. Crazy Love is not top notch but a good past time to me as KJW and Crystal are doing a fine job.

      HA! I also watched Through the Darkness last week and then rewatched Jealousy Incarnate for the nth time!

      Now I’m debating whether to watch Lee Dong Wook’s 9Tailed Fox or to rewatch Nobody Knows…

      Thanks..helpful.. I remember watching JI when it was on air

      HP, contrary to popular opinion, i didn’t enjoy it as much as say reply 88 or prison playbook (which i am yet to complete).. more so season 2 of HP was super meh for me.. and i do agree JJS is way too talented for normal roles

I guess, the brand is tainted.. even if not in eyes of public, in their own eyes.. and GD did post 5 puppet boys upon his return. Definitely end of an era.. but good also in a way.. now we will see their true talents.. No more singing to GD’s compositions

Time to try new stuff

But then they might already have so much money and side businesses, they may not need music.. Except maybe TY

You know what i am reminded of each time.. just before all of them entered army, the last words GD spoke to Seungri publically .. “Don’t mess up while we are away!” (knowing brothers.. )

Who needs to quarantine for 2 weeks if not the reporter??
You, drama, can\’t fool me..

Mommy did not even question her own mom, when in some episode mom\’s mom mentioned she met BYJ a few days ago.. And mom had no expression

LOL.. Granny met her because both are reporters…

They are so trying ot pull a reply series concept here with even a love rival.. Ha ha ha

    But there’s her daughter’s surname (Kim) and older Hee Do did look surprised when her mom mentioned meeting Baek Yi Jin. Anyways, I feel all this is kind of unnecessary. They should’ve kept only one timeline.

    1
    2

      That would have probably been for the best. This drama is so well written that I will be mad if Yi-jin is the dad because everything points to that not being the case. There’s really no way to reasonably explain the daughter’s surname and Min-chae not recognizing BYJ in that photo.

        I’m rooting for their forever happiness but they have given enough clues in the present timeline that it won’t be him. While rn it’s still in the friendship realm, the romance is slowly creeping in and its hard to not root for them. The present timeline really isn’t adding much to the story.

      Kim… i am pretty sure that BYJ’s mom’s maiden name is Kim.. and at some point he changed his surname

      Daughter doesn’t recognize him from the name in the diary.. and ib kdrama world it is ok to not recognize younger face with older person.. girl knows her dad.. that’s all

Unexpected business ep 3 is so good. JIS is my first and only over a week long kdrama celeb crush along with gong yoo ( oh coffee prince).

Anyway, so this granny is going on and on about how there are cameras everywhere and surmising that there must be a celebrity around. And Jo In Sung is happily chiming in , agreeing with her and building on the conversation by pointing out more cameras.. It is sweet!.. But if he did that to me and I find out later.. I would feel stupid

Then, another couple of grannies checking out JIS. One of them tells the other that he comes on TV (and I am happy to know that atleast some older people recognize him from his dramas), only to then confirm that she is referring to Unexpected business season 1.. Ha ha ha ha.. And she told him it comes on KBS

does anyone even care of Arthdal s2.. s1 was bad and boring enough except yangcha

given context,likely mido\’s character is dead. For twist ending Son Ye jin should die because she is the narrator. But character arc wise mido makes sense (why else would she stop smoking)

Bae doona and gong yoo..

Thing is I really liked Seonho

But this \”news\” about donating to children hospital.
PR sucks. 1) too much coincidence that it is children hospital 2) this \”belated\” news is again too much of a coincidence.. No belated.. It is a planned release

I guess, something needs to be done and well he was wronged. .. But STILL .. Blatant PR sucks

    I also really like Seonho and while some fans like this info, i don’t like it☹
    People should never made a news out of it

    Yeah, I assume the belated “leak” was a PR move, but he did donate to the same place the year before too, so I don’t necessarily think there were ulterior motives with that part.

    I never like when celebrities announce their donations.

      Merli was fun… but i think later seasons are messed up.. and with the other lead guy leaving.. ah!.. that love story deserved its ending..

      Skam (norway).. you are intoBLs.. its my fav too..s3.. they are the best even though people like french version more

      Secret forest is okish for me.. because both times i could guess the plot in early episodes itself, s2 i could see it in ep 1 itself 🙁 .. but hey.. our leads their chemi in s1 was good

      Love affair in afternoon – there is one movie with evergreen audrey hepburn.. watch it if you haven’t (but then i like her in anything.. as long as she is onscreen)

      five children was fun.. specially younger couples.. and SHERLOCK is well SHERLOCK.. no one could have outshined Downey as sherlock at that time, but this series did and so handsomely.. have you watched Hustle (UK).. old series but so good

        I haven’t finished Merlí (I’ve watched only 2 seasons).

        The original Skam is the best Skam. I like BLs but My fav season is season 4!

        I’ll add the movie to my watchlist. Watch the drama if you have the opportunity is really good!

        Hustle has been on my watchlist for years (I have a really long watchlist).

need some reccomendations – comedy, gripping mystery, heart fluttering romance, any other solid recommendation?

    Comedies
    Sound of your heart
    Welcome to Waikiki

      waikiki isn’t my cup of tea.. sound of your heart (is that the comic that got a live action adaptation? kwang soo?)

      1
      1

    Comedy:
    Ho Gu’s Love, Oh My Ghostess, Flower Boy Next Door, Sweden Laundry, The Fiery Priest, Chief Kim, Pegasus Market, Waikiki, Zombie Detective, Dae Jang Geum is watching, One the Woman, My Secret Terius, Queen of Mystery.

    I’m not sure what could be gripping mystery, maybe I haven’t watch something like that, but maybe something like:
    Nobody Knows, Children of Nobdy, Tunnel, Signal, Black, Secret Forest… maybe Hello Monster? I haven’t watch The Guest, Kairos (I only watched the first ep but it was good), Save Me or Chimera but I’ve heard good things about those shows.

    And I have never understood what heart fluttering means (I’m dumb, sorry), but I guess is something mature romance or melo so:
    You Are My Spring, Love Affairs in the Afternoon, W, Please Don’t Date Him, Be Melodramatic, Boyfriend, Flower of Evil, Run On, A Piece of Your Mind, Just Between Lovers, Find Me in your Memory, The Lover (Oh Jung Se-Ryu Hyun Kyung are probably the best couple ever).

    For comedy, I recommend The Great Show. It’s a hilarious and heartwarming look at what happens when a disgraced former assemblyman takes in four kids to rehabilitate his image.

I don\’t understand this snowdrop controversy.
Koreans say drama glorified NSA. JTBC says the drama is about govt. colluding with North Korea. How is that glorification?

Koreans say you cannot have a real spy part of democratic movement which legitimizes the whole agenda of the govt. for arresting the youth of the time. JTBC says FL and ML are not part of the movement.

Bottomline, if the script is about govt. colluding with North Korea, isn\’t that NOT a controversy then? Does it not support the actual movement that it was the govt. all along and not the kids?

I am confused

However, I would like to thank Jisoo whole heartedly because of her lack of acting skills I don\’t even feel the need to watch the show.. So atleast doesn\’t feel like I am missing something from a great content perspective

    I’ve been wondering the same too..
    Though for people to know all that, they would need to actually watch the show, which I’m assuming not many did based on the premise that it’s a terrible/offensive one…

    If anything, knetz can always say that they shouldn’t be romanticizing/dramatizing such traumatic and recent historical events (despite the fact that this drama is not the first to do that) and there aren’t many arguments against that, it’s understandable 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Personally I feel like, in this case, we can only really judge when the story is complete, or almost done…but I’m not sure the drama will be given the chance to reach that point 👀

    Honestly, Koreans are absolutely right on this one. Them using the music of the real movement when a spy is running off is already a huge middle finger to the people who lived through that. Besides, the NSA agents shouldn’t be painted in a sympathetic light.

    I just find Ifans so insensitive to this issue.
    You can’t and shouldn’t be telling the natives how to feel about something that happened to them. No matter how much you think you know or read online, it can’t be compared to the people this very thing happened to!

      Over reaction from you

      No one is telling anyone to do anything.. but that doesn’t mean you can’t even discuss or ask questions about what you don’t understand

      2
      1

        Omg, my comment stems from the comments I’ve read on twitter, Soompi and not in any way directed to you.

        And about asking questions about what you don’t understand, erm most people ain’t asking questions though? Just straight up telling Koreans to either suck it up and not take it this seriously because it is “FICTION”. Meaning, they’re overreacting and it’s just pure unjustified hatred for the drama.
