Can’t describe how much I grin watching sexually constipated Joo Sang-wook in DB’s Birth of a Beauty mini-player 🤣🤣.

I don’t know about you guys but at some point during this scene, I thought to myself “her hair must feel very heavy”. Zero doubt that this production team inception’ed this thought into my head. Bravo

I dare you to tell me a better written drama than FoS 2.
Also, I forgot how strong of a screen presence Lee Joon-hyuk has. Now, let\’s rewatch and wait for S3.

    I could only say S1, but it wouldn’t be totally true.
    Right now I’m like a little girl who’s been asked by an adult: who do you love more, mum (S1) or dad (S2)? I can’t decide!

      My reaction at the end of every episode from 12-16. S1: mouth hanging open, S2: applause. I think that sums up how I feel about each season.

For what it said about how f’ed up we are as a people, ep 14 of #FoS2 may be one of the single best episodes of a kdrama I’ve ever seen. Oddly, I think it would have more sense if SDJ had died.

    People complained earlier about FoS2 being boring, throwing so many questions without any hint of answers. I thought that’s the point of why FoS is FoS. Ep 13 and 14 just pull everything together in a master stroke that leaves me breathless and wordless. It has beaten its own S1 crown to be an even much more superior piece.

    Can’t wait for the glorious yet seemingly depressing finale. All I wish is let justice be done.

    Will be a happy camper for S3.

      The attention to detail is breathtaking. I have to agree, based on how eps 13-14 unfolded, s2 > s1 IMO. There has literally been no wasted acting – the slight anxiety that made me think the boy wasn’t so innocent in the drowning, that curious look CB gave regarding the new shoes, the reveal that the newbie prosecutor reminded Shi-mok of Eun-soo.. never ever would have put these things together, especially fitting it into the police vs prosecution story. Really masterful like you say.

    In a way, SDJ was collateral damage.. from the actions of the bullies, to the inattentive father who cared more about his son’s college pedigree, to CB who overlooked the new shoes detail (since she went there for a publicity stunt in the first place), to prosecution who planted the fake witness, and of course, the bullied victim himself. It would have made more sense if SDJ had died because a power play between police vs prosecution is ultimately what would have made the difference between a man’s life and death, and for most of the episode when I did think SDJ was dead, I had thought the show was using the slow burn death of a character whom I was emotionally invested in to depict the more realistic cruelty that people who are of at fault of their own suffer the consequences of the actions of others.
    It’s still pretty crazy.. in the second half of the episode and even now, I don’t know if I can fault for the kid for what happened – it brought to mind countless class discussions on whether we should try to understand the perpetrator as a victim vs look at the crime for what it is. The execution of this episode was flawless.

      “power play between police vs prosecution is ultimately what would have made the difference between a man’s life and death”. Agreed! But I also fear the power play could turn into an ugly blame game if Dong-jae really died.

Ep 15 Flower of Evil was the most needlessly contrived plot I\’ve seen in a long time. I can\’t even…

    It’s been like that for me since episode 11.
    I haven’t watched 15, I’ve just finished 14 and I wonder how they are going to fill two more hours.
    Episode 14 was not that bad (in comparison with 11-13), but we are just going round and round.

        Do writers understand that it’s not compulsory to write 16 episodes dramas? Drama can last less and be better!!

    If the story is about him to be dead, probably no need to show his escape attempt …. my wishful thinking, at least.

Maybe it\’s too early to say, but I feel like Alice will be Kim Hee-sun\’s second time-travel drama gone wrong? The direction certainly feels like it\’s from the early 2010\’s (and not in a good way).

    Oh No!! I thought that since this was pre-produced it might be better? I’ll give it up to Ep 3/4 to see if it gels.

      Unfortunate that K-dramas can’t have leads like Dr Oh, because she would bulldoze through all problems by ep 4. She was very wonderfully flawed.

    One of the strong female characters written ever, plus Moon So-ri’s on point delivery. It gives me high expectation of the character of Choi Bit in FoS2.

    I really love how Life projects and bring all these different characters to life – making it very real.

      LSY really writes female characters well. My biggest gripe is that she doesn’t have enough of them in her works. I would love to watch a show written by her with a majority of female representation, and see where that goes.

        I love Won Ji-ah in Just Between Lovers but think she’s miscast or not experienced enough to act well in Life. Her character is like a moral compass against the CEO that should have created very interesting dynamics amid the attraction between the two of them. It fell so flat that renders it to an opportunity lost.

          I loved almost everything about JBL! But yeah, Life was not a showcase-worthy role for WJA. A more seasoned actress could have played this very differently.

      finds out the anti-hero lied to her, pretends to not know and plays charades, putting him on edge, struggles with her feelings vs betrayal etc. maybe i’m just describing a melodrama.

    I’ve been saying that FoE has that Nice Guy vibes and i’m not complaining since Nice Guy is my favorite melodrama. The recent projects that MCW chose were kinda underwhelming but she’s really awesome in this kind of role so i’m glad that she chose this albeit the similar plot. It’s also interesting that one of the differences from Nice Guy is the FL character.

      the Nice Guy vibes didn’t totally hit me until MCW pretending not to know felt like her post amnesia character. I was half expecting her to open her eyes in the middle of kissing with that look.. yeah I still remember that scene from Nice Guy haha

        Oooh yes the open eyes kiss, it did happen in the flashback tho when they kissed and Hyunsu open his eyes to see his father’s “ghost” leaving and i remember that scene in the bridge. Also the scene in the recent episode when they were drinking beer and Jiwon pretended not to know, there was also a scene from Nice Guy when Maru and Eungi drinking beer while watching the night view, Eungi already found out about the relationship between him and stepmom but pretended not to know and dump him (yes i probably watched it too many times haha)

Even with the revival of Do Hui-jae arc, IOTNBO is a frontrunner for most complete non-procedural k-drama IMO in terms of cinematography, screenplay and acting. What a satisfying finale.
