Beanie level: Errand boy

My experience at MDL has shown me how way better of a place Dramabeans is. Reminder: Do not comment in the MDL comment section of hyped and controversial dramas.

All right, I thought about this a lot. After the experience I personally had when with some hardcore fans of a drama, cause I was too critical of it (getting called a hater, cause I pointed out the flaws), I realised how far I myself could have gone in defending my favorite drama/character. I want to apologise to the people who I annoyed by my aggressiveness in my defense of them (You know which drama and character I am talking about). I know I took it a bit too personally and I really am sorry about that.

    You’ve also experienced some of the nastier trolls I’ve seen here, for which I’m sorry.

    You have nothing to apologise for Amy.

    I hope those commentators manage to do some self reflection and realise how their nasty comments can have a lasting effect.

    I just thought about this…the shadows are facing different directions, does that mean Korea and Corea have different time? Like morning in Corea is evening in Korea 🤯

    I was utterly confused at first. Took me a while to realize it’s the same actor. Hahaha.

    And I also just realized…..that it’s a parallel world, not someone from the past who goes to the future. No wonder the teaser looked so modern, and instead of wearing traditional garb and being carried in a palanquin, the king rides a white horse 😆.

    Phew….I can feel my brain overworking when I watch this.

couldn’t keep myself from reading the IC comments. They are getting extremely ridiculous. Has everyone gone crazy? 🤦

    It’s exactly the webtoon storyline only very tiny bit changed.

    I hope this isn’t a trend going forward to other recaps.

    Dramas like this pop up occasionally. Another one is on it’s way (because of the writer and one or two of the actors).

      If it is the one I’m thinking if I’m looking forward to it. I really hope the comment section can stay fun and lively without whatever this is.

      That one is going to be…interesting. I will probably stay well away from those comments.

Last six episodes left to watch of Itaewon Class but I am tired of it and of the battle of the opinions going on when it comes to this drama both here and on Tumblr (which was heaven when I wanted positive stuff/comments about CTG thankfully). I am going to watch this after it ends and keep away from the comments/posts related to it till then (hopefully)

Like people can give Yi Seo the benifit no matter what she does. Okay fine. Yet no one can do the same for Soo Ah huh? Didn\’t ep 8 show that she isn\’t so bad? So Yi Seo can change but not Soo Ah?

    lol. I love when Beanies defend characters.
    I am (was?) one of those who disliked Soo Ah a lot. and in spite of her clearly not being the big bad wolf in sheep’s clothing (any more?), I still don’t like her very much.

    As for Yi-Seo, it’s not that I forgive her for anything she does. She’s just a much more compelling character. She gets me in a rage but has me curious enough to wanna know WHY/HOW she thinks/acts the way she does.

    I’m still at the start of ep 6 and I’m finding hard to give her the benefit of doubt. Show didn’t give us any reason she would work for Jangga other than greed, and the idea she would even think about calling the cops was just plain crazy. After that, she seems to feel guilty, so she takes the blame for calling them, but at the same time she punishes PSR for feeling guilty and angry, so once again it’s hard to have sympathy, because she is so entitled. However I suspect all that is useless because story is just stting her up for some cliche redemption arc in which she looses her job and helps hero in his silly revenge plot. The villains and Soo-Ah are the most boring part of this show.

      Lol this is precisely the problem I have with people who dislike Soo-Ah. Like, she has to be so perfect that she can’t even THINK bad thoughts. News flash: most humans, heck I would even say all humans, definitely think or even are tempted by doing bad things. But then our moral compasses that has been cultivated by society checks us and so we stop ourselves, just like Soo-Ah here.

      Soo-Ah works at Jangga because of greed??? I’m sorry but what?? By that token, everyone who works are greedy. For all we know, Jangga was the best job offer she got (think of it as like getting an offer from Google) so she took it, just like the majority of people would. If she was greedy, she would have easily date or even marry Geun Won and instantly have billions of wons, no work needed.
      Finally, um, she’s the opposite of entitled. That would describe Yi Seo, not Soo Ah. She holds on to her job so tightly because she doesn’t have anything else; she doesn’t even think she deserves SY’s love because she thinks that he shines too brightly for her.

        Wait a bit, thinking bad thoughts is very different from almost calling the police on a friend’s pub, basically setting a trap for him. This is not the kind of thought decent people have, it’s about instinct. I don’t know why she works at Jangga, show never explained, but it’s still the workplace of the guy who killed someone she liked and owned by the guy who framed her friend. I’m sure there were other places, if it’s about money, she was greedy. If the majority of people would take it, that doesn’t make her less greedy kkk. If she had dated or married the murderer, that would only make her even more greedy kkkkk. He is not perfect but she is right, even though he is patronizing towards her, personally I consider him morally superior, if she deserves his love or not, that is entirely another conversation.

    Lol compelling. I find neither of them compelling. I started watching kdramas cause I got tired and bored of ‘morally grey’ characters be it someone like Yi Seo or someone like Soo Ah. I should probably not care but whatever.

    Thanks for the follow!
    I’m actually quite surprised at the amount of “love” YS received from netizens because from the get-go the character reeks of all kinds of personality disorder traits. Before anyone wants to rebutt this, the disclaimer I’d like to put forth is, all of us have some personality disorder traits, and how much we allow those traits to manifest.
    Now, YS has no qualms of exhibiting the mindset of superiority. She’s self-entitled, shows no interest in others, violent. I highly doubt her love for PSRY because it feels like she’s finally found something that she wants, and she WANTS to have it. That’s why she keep proclaiming that she loves him so much she wants to die. And I think that’s scary. That’s stalker level kind of scary. And there’re people who think that’s alright, it’s just a kid experiencing her first love *rolls eyes*
    This is where I got a bit alarmed, at the netizens’ defense of her. Because irl it wouldn’t be difficult to categorize YS as some kind of narcissistic personality disorder, and we all know these people are toxic and emotionally draining. And then I realise, ah, that’s why we have people who’re victims of mental abuse/emotional blackmailing/gaslighting irl, because they don’t recognise signs exhibited by people like YS. They’re charming, social chameleons, and you’d never know you’re entrapped until too late.
    Sorry for the WOT, heh.

      I haven’t actually seen past ep 10 but I did read the comments and the excuses people make some made for racism and now this, I am tired of. So even though I have a lot to say I won’t right now until I have watched till the end. But from what I have seen I can say is they like her cause she is not a candy character but she is just like the jerk lead but female. And while I am all for role reversals this is one I don’t need from a character I am supposed to root for. Her actions don’t become right neither cause she is a ‘complex’ character or cause she is a sociopath. I was hoping for her growth but I am not surprised there wasn’t much.

        Nope, I was hoping she’d tone down, even a bit is fine, after the 4 years jump but no, still pretty much the same. Maybe she doesn’t beat people up now, idk. I’ve yet to watch Ep 14.
        For some reasons I don’t feel to compelled to watch this of all dramas I watch during the week. The revenge part was exciting, and like most other Kdramas, a love line just had to be introduced, which I honestly find a tiring trope. A shame for a drama that could have been different ane great.
        The pro-YS people wouldn’t believe me, but I really don’t want PSRY to date either of the girls.
