HELPPPPP. Is there any #TheUntamed thread I could visit to check out fellow beanies’ flail posts? I want more related content, juseyo. I’m late to the party but I still want to read your thoughts (or squeals, cries, agonies, joy) about the drama. The story got me so goooood ;A; WWX and LWJ are my golden pairing from now on! I love all the not~so~subtle BL feels they gave us. My poor kokoro *~*

    There’s also discord where I frequent these days. I hang out at the c-drama thread where we yak about chinese dramas including Untamed. There’s a lot of unrelated stuff going on as well so you’ve been warned😉 Here’s the link https://discord.gg/qTVPmU (not very sure if it works), give a shout out if you need help.

      @outofthisworld Hmm…not so sure I can deal with any “discord” relating to c-dramas…
      However, I did just give EverNight 2 a “1” rating (out of 10) due to intense disappointment (esp with Dylan Wang’s “acting”). Thoughts? I don’t mean to offend any diehard DW fans…
      Always look forward to hearing from you.

          I imagine everybody else will like it. (since I’m usually in the minority). Beautiful cinematography, CGI and nice music. Over acting though. No subtlety, imo. Compared to Untamed, which focused on the actors’ expressions, EN2 spends most of the camera time on beautiful scenery and one second on an actor. Dylan Wang (imo) doesn’t fit the part at all. He takes me right out of the drama. It’s like the director says “okay, now I need an angry expression…okay, now I need a piercing look…okay, now I need a tender look…etc. But it’s all the same.
          And it takes itself too seriously…

            I just watched 40 mins of ep 1, FF to DW’s scenes. Straight away, the directing is weird. DW feels too modern in his mannerisms. It doesn’t help when I keep seeing DMS in period garb. This is one aspect where an actor can either impress the audience or fall short – act convincingly as a character who is opposite from the one in your previous major work.

            Didi needs to tone it down. I have been searching for the right word all this while(even before this show’s trailer came along) and you nailed it, he has a piercing look. It may be natural to him and while it’s an asset for playing angsty, edgy characters, it also limits him.

      Welcome to the Untameable Beanies @chakhanseupeu!

      I second the discord! I think we talk about something Untamed related daily (among other cdrama related topics or just random everything else). But we post a lot of fanfics, videos, images, and TU related quizzes in the discord 😆 But it’s a discord made by Beanies for Beanies where we can spazz about our love for different dramas.

      Along with the fanwalls that Outie mentioned, @growingbeautifully also has been posting a lot of The Untamed related videos so you can also hit up her fanwall 😍 And feel free to hit up mine as most of my fanwall is TU related lol

      Ahhhh, I’ve long given up on logic in this drama XD The husband is making me crazy trying to figure him out. I’ve never been in his situation but I seriously cannot stand his indecisiveness /:

        I seriously don’t understand the husband. He just baffles me. Like, dude, really…..

        I usually don’t get 2nd lead syndrome. In my 9 years of drama watching I have never experienced it and I think this is the drama that ends the streak.

          *throws confetti in the air* Our Dr. Jang is worth the SLS! I find him so attractive in this drama. His quiet moments are so… telling. I love watching him interact with the female lead. They’re somehow compatible with each other, despite their depressing circumstances.

            There’s a nice, subtle chemistry between the two characters which I really like. I care about these two when they are onscreen. I can see my heart breaking, but I don’t care. Doctor and patient are my ship. Gah, and that scene where she finds him in his apt crying. Tugged at my heartstrings.

        If they cast better leading man, I will still understand our leading man more. I just assume right now Do Young love both woman and doesn’t want to admit it. If he has confident about his feeling, he will let this project work without worry his feeling involve. For me, his reasoning about his wife feeling is just an excuse to hide his real intention.

        I’m squeal in glee looking at preview. omg that huge. Our doctor and his patient Hyun Joo has more chemistry than our otp lol..

        1
        1

          Or maybe that’s just the point of all this. We’re supposed to hate on the indecisive husband who can’t seem to understand the promise of marriage -__- and who seems oblivious to everything that is happening to his wife. I mean, come on! They’ve been together for how many years and yet, now that she is behaving strangely, he can’t seem to figure out wth is wrong? He was so close. He once said it couldn’t be just because of Da-Hye, so why didn’t he press? I think if he pressed on the issue hard enough, she would have confessed everything. She clearly loves him and is weak whenever something bad happens to him so I think she would have said the truth if she sees that he’s suffering from her erratic behaviors. Sigh.

          I’m sorry. I was just ranting. I’m really pissed by the male lead’s character so yeah XD

          I’m looking forward to more doctor-patient/man-woman scenes! XD

          1
          1

            IKR? How can he can’t figure it out already? He know Hyun Joo has a cancer history in her family. He knows her wife is always check her health to anticipate her illness earlier. How can he can’t figure out already? How? Even the slightest hint ?. He piss me off sometimes. lol Let’s just say he is not sensitive enough as a husband.

            But despite all of that, assuming he really love both woman. I’m certain He is already decide which side he will choose, to go to his wife and adamant to go to her . SO I give him a plus for that! But because of this, his dissapointment will be far greater when he know her wife is beside with another man. feeling betray

/squeaaaaaaals/ Hello, fellow beanies!
I started 20TH CENTURY BOY AND GIRL and omgggg why didn’t I watch this sooner?! It’s so sweet, light and funny (lmao such a trope-y description of rom-com). Ugh, I freak!n love the chemistry between the main leads <3 They look so good together (*´∀`*) Also, I think I'm crushing on Kim Ji-suk (〃▽〃) I find him extremely charming in this drama.

P.S. I may or may not have started this because I'm avoiding the last four episodes of Just Between Lovers /runs away/

        Hmmm, maybe he still has some of that payout money he got from his start-up company in college. Do you have an idea how much a reservation is for restaurants like this?

        1

          Well, the cost of one dinner would have to cover a day’s rent on the premises and the salary of the waiter in the corner and they would need to make a profit too. Unless it’s somewhere totally unfashionable of course and people have to travel far to get there.

          On a completely unrelated note, how awesome would it be to have the job of that waiter. You get to totally listen in to conversations of people who want to be especially private. From marriage proposals to corporate take-over shenanigans.

        I think it’s not about prison guard’s salary, but Jun ho is living well, he has a nice house too. Jun ho economic is well enough, and he is enjoying his life, everytime he try some work he easily feeling bored, he can earn money without any difficulty, we don’t knkw how many job that he do before being a prison guard.

        Hear! Hear! He gave me quality entertainment whenever he was on screen. He totally made the show better for me. Sigh. It’s so hard investing feelings to precious characters like this. We should have known we were in for a heartbreak the moment we started to enjoy his character > . <

    If only…
    If Ji-won spoiled him with the surprise, would Hanyang still choose the wrong path? If Ji-won told him he was giving him a ring, would Hanyang end up ruining himself again? I couldn’t help but think of another scenario where Ji-won gave in and showed him the ring, a scenario where Ji-won insisted to wait for Hanyang outside of the prison, a scenario where Ji-won got to tell Hanyang his feelings in words, a scenario where Ji-won assured Hanyang they’d make it work … uuuugh this is why Kang-doo (Just Between Lovers) hate “What ifs” SIGH. What do you guys think?

      This was so cruel! But I guess the writer, being korean, didn’t have another choice as to rip our hearts out with this moment. This country has such strict laws for drugs and this moment was a powerful message on how drugs can destroy your life and your happiness. When you see it as a social and political statement no other outcome was possible and the what ifs make it even more haunting.

      4
      1

        If this show has done anything really right (besides many, many other things), than it has shown us that drugs are the worst poison in the world and if they took a hold of you it is nearly impossible to let go. Hanyang served as warning sign, that you can’t take this problem lightly.
        And still I just wished for his happiness so much, because he tried soooooooo freaking hard. But then he couldn’t do this by himself. He only overcame the dependency of his body, which is a remarkable feat, but not of his mind. For that he would have needed professional help.

        4
        1

          And that’s what I’m worried about. What if they placed him again in a prison and not a rehab center? Is he going to experience the never ending cycle of his drug dependency? My only wish is for him to finally get professional help and truly overcome his addiction. He deserves a second chance ;;

            Prison Playbook: series 2.

            Hanyang has a really tough time in prison. JW refuses to come see him and his parents no longer support him either. Then, he’s placed back in the cell with Capt Yoo who beats the cr*p out of him for taking drugs again.

            But Crony is also still there and shows him that it’s all about gaining self-respect, after he’s learned this lesson himself from Je-hyuk. This sets Hanyang on the road to realise the underlying problem of his addiction. That he doesn’t need to get himself beaten up to gain attention. That he can admit that he does feel pain and doesn’t have to suppress the pain through drugs. He now also knows that he’ll always be an addict and the next time he’s released checks himself into a rehab clinic immediately.

            And lives happily ever after. The end.

      So… I could write an essay about this but I won’t. First of all, I want to say that I clearly did not want this to happen. But when it did, it was heart-breakingly well done. It showed how hard it is not to give in to temptation once outside, when the real stuff is right there. The ring wouldn’t have made a difference. He’d had that conversation with Ji-won at the visit before, where JW basically said: if you stay clean, we get back together, so he knew what the deal was. But the drugs were in front of him and he gave in. So heartbreaking. So true to real life. And then, when it happened, that he was immediately arrested was the best outcome for all concerned. Otherwise he would have gone to the meeting with JW and his parents high and would have tried to hide what he’d done.

          B— but what if they had an even deeper conversation about this? He needed one last assurance that they’d make it work. What if Ji-won let him hear the words he wanted to hear before he went out of the room. What if— okay, I need to stop. I clearly understand what you mean but my brain won’t stop making excuses :/ And you’re right, the fact that he got immediately arrested was better than seeing him break his parents and Ji-won’s heart. I don’t need that kind of depressing scene.

          I loved reading your thoughts. Thank you for writing an essay. Keep them coming <3

      To be honest, one of the things that miffed me the most about this was the fact that it was a police set-up. I mean, I get that they’re trying to get druggies in action, but hello, I’m sure they would’ve know that Hanyang JUST got out of jail. Setting him up with a drug dealer like that is just well…setting him up. How do they know that Hanyang would contact his friend again? Or that he was planning to get drugs once we got out of jail? Those were all speculation at best and it’s horrible for them to do it. It’s like the police putting food in front of a starving kid and then arresting him for eating it without permission later on. Can you blame the poor boy when you just dangled temptation like that?

      2
      1

        I don’t think that the police were targeting Hanyang specifically.

        They used the dealer to entrap other druggies & dealers and Hanyang was just the easiest victim for his former mate. His mate knew that the moment that he came out of prison was when he’d be most vulnerable as he would have been with the ‘real stuff’ for a while.

    Awww, this gal. The scene where she was practicing how to greet Min-chul bear was so adorable and heartwarming. The way the show introduced her character made me go “Ah yes, she is indeed Min-chul’s daughter.” Such a bright and positive kiddo.

        I support this story-line. I was thinking the same thing when Lt. Paeng mentioned that Jean Valjean and his daughter were both waiting outside. I’m sure that while waiting for Minchul bear, they were having their own moments <3

    LMAO these two! I had hope that Law Man would be able to handle the catch but of course, he wasn’t trained to do this so he cracked XD I loved how Crony looked at Je-hyuk first before saying, “It doesn’t hurt.”, like he was showing off to his father or something.

    Wow 👏👏👏 Looney really doesn’t learn 🤣🤣🤣 I totally did not expect that hit. He sure has guts.
    *inserts another ‘What ifs’* What if they did throw him a (touching) goodbye party? What if they gave him an intense one-on-one talk before he got released? Would these moments help him be strong and resist the temptation that awaits for him outside prison? Sigh. Maybe not, because he was in the wrong facility. I know a few beanies already pointed this out. Hanyang should be in a rehabilitation center for him to get the proper help he needs >.<

    AH! This scene. I’d like to think that the car door was locked and Hanyang was totally cornered into giving in to temptation. But of course, that wasn’t the case. It was his addiction who couldn’t open the door and resist the drugs. It was his choice to fall into the sh!thole again. I know the show wanted this issue to be as realistic as possible but I just couldn’t help but be selfish and wish for him to have his happy ending (one that we could actually celebrate) They could have done that falling back to addiction off-cam or idk, as something that happened later in his story-line (one that we didn’t have to witness). My heart needed to see Hanyang and Ji-won hug or smile at each other again. D@rn it.

    aaaaand this is why Joon-ho is also my dream guy. He’s so considerate of others. He’s not only smart but he also has the heart to deal with everyone around him. The whole scene was so sweet, adorable and heart-fluttering. Jung Kyung-ho never fails to make my heart go… (´⌣`ʃƪ) and (⺣◡⺣)♡* <3

        They’re perfect for each other! Je-hyuk needs someone like Ji-ho in his life. And Ji-ho, well, she already said she’s so in love with him she’d give it her all. I’m glad they showed us their relationship development at the end. Je-hyuk meeting Ji-ho after losing the game. They can now move forward and face other life challenges together.

    # OFFICER SOFTIES. I swear, these correction officers are the biggest softies in Kdramaland! It was heartwarming seeing them celebrate the good things with the squad <3

      How did they ever get into this profession? They are so freaking cute it is insane. This trio has such a funny dynamic.

      4
      2

        What I found interesting is that people kept saying that being a correction officer was quite a good job. Definitely one of many cultural differences.

        Or maybe that was as unrealistic is having really lovely prisoners?

        3
        2

          Yes, I was for sure surprised when they said it was a good profession. Like seriously? They have to look after criminals…

          On the other hand, I do believe that there must be quite a few decent people who are in prison of bad luck or some stupid mistake, they normally wouldn`t do…it was a bit unrealistic that all of those came to the same cell, but who cares? Those interactions were awesome and they made it extra special when “Bald guy” (I don’t remember his name right now) came into the cell and the whole dynamic changed and then they just changed him into another adorable character that could be redeemed.

          Man what a great drama! Still feeling the after glow.

          1

            Crony? He gave me the biggest hate/love feels swing of any character in any drama ever lol.

            I liked the little moment when the cellmate from the first cell was shown to be scamming Kaist’s ex-wife. Some leopards clearly didn’t change their spots.

            2
            0

          Perhaps they were referring to the stability of the job and the benefits that come with it? Correction officers are government employees, aren’t they? And from what I’ve gathered, Koreans think highly of people who are employed by the government so maybe that’s why everyone kept saying it’s a good job.

    Officer Song is just like Looney… minus the dope. I actually enjoy his ramblings because he’s kinda cute when he rants. He’s also got that “chatty” voice to sell the character’s annoying habit. Hah. I think I’d enjoy having this loquacious guy around in real life. Do you guys have an Officer Song in your circle of friends? XD

    now THIS.. this was totally unexpected 🤣😂
    Two things came to mind when I watched this scene:

    1) Wow… it must be really hard/embarrassing for Lt. Paeng to say, “Thank you.”, that he just resorted to giving a heart-finger.

    2) Heart-fingers make everything better. Is this considered aegyo? Okay, his attempt of doing this kind of aegyo gesture is him trying to have a buddy-buddy relationship with Joon-ho, right? riiiigghhhhht? XDDD

    /sCREAAAAAAAAAAAAMS/ My BL heart totally squealed when I watched this scene (ノ∀`♥) Ah, finally~ these two! I’m totally inside an AU where lawyer guy is secretly in love with Capt. Yoo’s brother (⊃‿⊂) I can’t help making up scenarios like this. It’s in my blood to automatically think gay scenarios whenever I see two men together. #Notsorry Heeh.

      That scene where the victim’s mother gives him money to buy a coat totally did me in.

      5
      1

        When Lawyer guy commented about his jacket, I can’t believe I ignored his awkward response and thought nothing of it. It was because he was struggling financially and couldn’t afford extra expenses like buying himself a warmer/thicker jacket. So when the scene with the mother happened, I was full on screaming at my computer, “Take it! Take it! Take it!” and when he did, the floodgates opened T______T That was such a touching scene ;; Also, the money… I’m glad he took it so he doesn’t have to worry about financial matters for the mean time.

        He’s such a good brother > . <

    Wow.. Jung Hae-in! 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 Props to him for doing a great job in portraying this character. He was amazing as Captain Yoo 👍👍👍👍👍 And this last scene totally sealed the deal for me.

    Captain Na. Enough said.

    But okay, clearly not enough for my heart.

    He was so annoying but was incredibly good at being annoying so I couldn’t outright hate him. I was more annoyed at myself because I found him attractive (hot, even) and then I just let go of the negative vibes and embraced his character. I wanted the Warden to be all cringe-y whenever Je-hyuk was in his office just to see Captain Na’s reactions. He’s such a diva with his resting beesh face 😂 I have to say though, I was prepared for a sob!fest for his character but I’m glad the show didn’t go there and gave us a way more satisfying ~backstory~ for him. Did you guys notice the camouflage pencil case on his younger version’s desk? I squealed at his teeny tiny detail of the character. Consistency 👌👌👌

    THIS SCENE WAS CRACTASTIC XD Even though we’ve already established that Je-hyuk isn’t that bright, I still can’t help but be amazed when he does things like this. He totally did that on purpose, right? Forgetting to mention Joon-ho as a payback for not telling him about his relationship with Je-hee? And at the same time, giving Joon-ho an opening to confess. AH, #bestbromance !
