Beanie level: Noble idiot

Though I’ve probably seen just about every version ever, I want just one more Playful Kiss/Itazura na Kiss but told solely from Baek Seung Jo/Aihara’s perspective, please and thank you.

The writer shows Kang-Chul really struggling with the idea that he might be gay but keeps undercutting the struggle with humor. I’m not sure what the writer is really getting at.

In Ho-Gu’s Love, how does the writer want the viewer to view Kang-Chul’s exploration of his sexuality? Is it supposed to be in jest? The depiction is making me uncomfortable.

    It is an uncomfortable storyline, and one I don’t think resolves in completely satisfactory manner. On the other hand, I don’t think the writer is doing it completely in jest, more that they don’t have the skill to work with this in a sophisticated and nuanced way.

      For someone grappling with their sexuality, it can be a very difficult and confusing time. As a viewer, and knowing the source of Kang Chul’s confusion, watching Kang-Chul struggle is almost taken way too lightly. I’m so frustrated with the writer. I wish they would have had to skill and courage to have done this very sensitive topic properly.

        Coffee Prince set a bar, but one would hope the bar would keep rising.

          Choi Do Bin, in Personal Taste, was handled fairly well and Joon-Hee (Answer 1997) as well. So, I know this journey can be handled properly.

You can say it needed to be done or that it’s shining example of how to lose a battle between productivity & procrastination. Either way, I have officially cleared my entire watchlish on Dramafever.

      Hm… No recent faves but a new addition to my “Love-to-Hate” list is I Am Not A Robot. I’m in the literal middle of Ho-Gu’s Love right now.

        haha as cute as the OTP in I’m Not a Robot was, I couldn’t get over the plot holes and annoying secondary characters…so wasn’t as impressed with this one as other people seemed to be

        I really like Hogu’s Love, I found it addicting even!

While I haven’t been able to catch an episode yet, can I say how pleased I am that the cast of ABC’s Good Doctor is so diverse and over the age of 30 (exception for Freddie Highmore)?
