KKH’s favourite scene from D.P.
Funny I remember noticing Junho’s smile and thinking it was out of character–turns out it was an NG that somehow made it back in 😂

Haha I would never have made that connection!

    I hope we get to see Snowdrop., after all the controversy.

      Ikr, this topic came up on the ‘what we’re watching’ thread too. It’s got a time slot but its fate will ultimately depend on netizens’ reaction to the initial episodes. I hope it doesn’t get cut short or modified beyond reason!

        But then there’s also Jisoo’s acting to worry about…can she really lead sixteen episodes when she doesn’t even have experience as a second lead?

        The Blue House in response to a petition said they wouldn’t interfere with freedom of expression. I can understand the concern. It’s all in living memory. At the same time it’s before they even know what it’s about.

          I reckon the production will navigate the subject matter sensitively, especially considering that first petition.

            Yes. They are changing her name. But it’s supposed to be a black comedy, so it won’t be easy, especially if netizens choose not to laugh.

Young-tae (Kang-hoon) really is the talker of the group!

Koo Kyo-hwan’s mind! This gave me goosebumps!
*imagines season 2 revealing Ho-Yeol was really a figment of Junho’s imagination created as a coping mechanism*
*immediately regrets imagining because it’s just too tragic*

    The translation is a bit awkward but this interview does contain some interesting trivia.

    NOOO. I’d hate even imagining that. Ho-yeol not being real would be far too upsetting.

      I knowww he’s the only ray of sunshine in this series! It’s an interesting interpretation though…kind of like how the perfect ML solves all of the FL’s problems, Hoyeol is an ideal senior in the DP setting–saves him from bullying, says they can drop formalities outside, encourages him to talk to his mum.

    yooho.. i guessed it right then 5 minutes into ep 1..

    this has to have schizophrenia to some extent

      It’s not confirmed by the writer, just Koo Kyo-hwan’s interpretation but yeah given Junho’s family situation and then all the things he’s been through in the military, it wouldn’t be surprising if he developed schizophrenia. But I don’t want them to go there because as dark as the show was, I don’t think I could take that much reality!

        Wow, this would be a painful twist, if true. Now that I think about it, I read that Ho Yeol is not in the original webtoon and was only added in the drama version.

          Him not being in the webtoon does add more weight to this theory! I wonder if they will really go there…

    Late here, but this is really interesting. I remember I kept thinking of Mulholland Drive while I watched it. Makes me more uneasy about it but definitely resonates.

    I can’t believe it’s happening! They’ve set the bar high though…
    I really hope they can do it again!

A beanie recommended Kikazaru Koi ni wa Riyuu ga Atte/Why I Dress Up For Love on one open thread. I don’t really watch jdramas but I gave it a try and I love the FL’s outfits! The drama is worth a watch for her wardrobe alone, really. She’s got the flair of SYJ in IONTO/IU in HDL but a more realistic/wearable style. And with mad earring game. (On the actual drama: I had SLS so…)

    This was a fun, summery drama! I liked that it had pretty low angst and was much ado about nothing really. The food porn was also good. And we got to see some countryside and seaside. All of these were pluses were for me in this drama.

      It was a nice change of pace from kdrama land tbh. I did enjoy all the things you mentioned, especially the food lol. My main gripe was not liking the ML so when the romance took over I lost some interest.

        I wasn’t invested in any one of the lead OTPs too much. I was gunning for the gamer ajusshi to make his comeback haha.

Hello beanies!
Long-time lurker here 🙂
I made an account so I could share this piece I drew, it’s inspired by *that* scene in D.P.
