Beanie level: Errand boy

Thought on this week’s start up

What I like:
-JP emotional scenes with halmoni. That scene wrecks me and I cried along with them. The way he tearing up while watching halmoni using noongil, the way he keeps pushing her hands while apologising… my favourite scene so far from JP and halmoni
-Demo day. That was quite interesting.

What I don’t like:
-Overall writing for this week episodes. Taking out any attachment to the characters, the writing is subpar. I mean, I had issued the way they don’t develop DS and DM enough but it was even more noticeable in this ep but Injae had it worse. Such a waste to Kang Hanna’s potential. Heck, despite Kim Seonho’s stellar performance, JP is not doing much better. There are few baffling plots this week so I’m a bit curious to see how they gonna pull through
-Long distance relationship is nothing new, in case anyone wants to consider that option
-Revenge plot is just……

I lose interest with start up. I’m not sure whether I’m going to watch next week ep but I do want to see how they gonna show DS’s growth and HJP is a director now? But the JP/DM baiting is a no for me. Come on now, I hope they wont turn JP into DM’s rebound guy and get dump when DS is back.

Startup ep12

I\’m not happy the way Jipyeong found out about halmoni losing her eyesight

and I cried my eyes out along with him. damn kim seon ho really knows how pull those emotional scenes

    That scene is magnificent; the way he began to tear up.. and the way he cried in front of halmoni is just heartbreakingly good.

What happened to Start up ep11? It was…subpar? minus the demo day part. I dont understand why DS’s dad need that much of  screen time? and the revenge plot? that was it?? REALLY?

Honestly, I think JP should just let them be. Some people need to taste failure to mature and seeing how they continuously let their personal feeling getting in their way, maybe this is the best for them 🤷‍♀️ idk anymore

I’m just waiting for JP to finally know about halmoni illness. I’m want to see the final cut of 13 hrs crying/tearing up filming

Injae’s arc WHEN?

5
8

    This is it I think, the beginning of the 13 hours of tears. If one were to believe the preview, Jipeyong will be harsh about their acquisition, Dalmi will beat herself for not looking deeper, Dosan will get livid because Jipeyong made her cry, the two will exchange nasty words and fists, Dosan will in the heat of the moment tell Jipeyong about Halmeoni’s eye condition and he will run to see her, thereby many many tears all around.

      As soon as I watched those scenes, this comment flashed through my head and I had to come back to your comment just to tell you how right you are!
      Like @parkchuna said, are you the writer or the assistant writer? 😅

        I wish I was on the writing team but alas, this was the first time I was actually right with this show. I like being wrong about this show though, so I hope I’m wrong about the rest of it. Because there is no way I’d want HJP to be the “angel” NDS called him when the show began, and give up the girl, just to make her happy.

    This is getting boring and as you said, SamSan Tech needs to be left to its own devices to learn the hard way.

    I dont think InJae’s arc will ever happen, nor DM’s questioning grandma’s role in the lie. She n DS are somehow magically ok, while JP gets thrown under the bus for being honest at least business-wise. The revenge plot is a farce..cos i do not buy that whole spiel abt JP being too mean to the brother and YS whole revenge was just outing him with a lil confrontation in the lift?

Taluipa know all along about Imoogi but she just let a human (ish?) and a fox do a (bad) job while she sit comfortably and said you get it wrong~ Her reluctance to do anything or even share anything about Imoogi makes me wonder about their actual relationship? Ehh… it cant be right? Not them being the bad parents who neglected their son few kingdoms ago….

As for Imoogi, so Jia is the main one and Terri is the 2nd Imoogi? That was a lot of work to wake up a secondary character tho 😂What about in the past? Did Aeum destined to be his bride cause they are a pair or…..?  I wish we get less PPL time next week

Props to 2 human who know how to do their job properly. You should ask for a raise from Yeon ngl

    I´m not into finance since I have a dyslexia of numbers, I can´t even read math – I have to memorize everything. I know my budjet by heart but can´t write it down.

    But this character makes it human, answers the “why” and “how” so it becomes unboring.

    I have been totally sucked into KAIROS. After 4 episodes I am like wow and there are 12 episodes to go.
    This drama wasn’t even in my radar until a few days before the first episode and I watched the 13 minute teaser on Kocowa.

Tale of the nine tailed

Gaahh… I was hoping they clear out about what happened in past and square up to imoogi together but nope. Noble idiocy need to make an appearence~
But I\’m happy to get some creepy and action towards the end ngl. Pls continue with that pace and plot next week, for the whole ep and not just towards the end 🤞🤞

p/s: Need help with the folk tale characters. Who is that green ahjumma and who/what happened to taluipa\’s son? Are they even based on folk tales? I\’m somewhat familiar with snail bride tale but that\’s it 😂

8
1

    Yes! I also tried googling that green ahjumma and the son (Bok-gil?), but came up empty-handed.

    I’m also happy with the pace picking up and the creepiness coming back. Those angry zombie ghosts freaked me the F out, and I loved episode 8 all the more for it.

    If they’re going with noble idiocy, I’m at least glad that they’re (hopefully!) getting it out of the way by episode 8 – the preview for episode 9 leaves me to believe that all paths may come back together again relatively quickly. Let’s get this motley coalition together and fight some giant snake evilness and more zombies and whatever other creepy stuff is lurking in the forests of Korea!

Kairos better not flop the way Tale of the nine tailed.
The first 2 eps are amazing. I hope the following episodes give me the same thrill

p/s: ok..flop probably a bit too strong but gumiho is disappointing me rn with its plots and characterizations

I already think that snotty kid is not just random kid chatting Lee Yeon in ep 1 but I was thinking something like deity/god/higher being like the butterfly in Goblin. Kinda blown away that he actually the reincarnation of that poor lil cub ngl. So Lee Yeon purposely didn’t killed Rang and accurately guess that Rang owed that snake something.
I hope they wont waste time and give us and Jia the whole story of what happened 600 years ago tho.

    i thought Rang owes the traitor his life for sure.. not sure if he owes imoogi anything directly

      as yes. i think imoogi already ‘dead’ by the time rang met with traitor right? i guess traitor collecting debt by asking rang help him with the whole imoogi business will be more accurate tbh

Kairos ep1 is so thrilling and action packed and I’m loving it. The way Seojin lost everyone that is dear to him and him sobbing at that bridge, it is so heart-breaking. The premiere episode is so good now I have expectation for next episode.

        season 4 is amazing.. and you can totally sense that except for JH and SH, others are true fans of the show and care too much. It is great that JH and SH fit in so perfectly.

        PD smiley is the biggest truest fan of 1n2d.. you can feel the love.. and similarly from SY and Din Din. Ravi being a mild fan.

        I like how sincere they are towards the show. Cast is amazing. It is season 1 all over again.

    That was super odd! He’s clearly better than Lala at adulting, and making him younger can make a fun dynamic between them… But high schooler? Man, it got me thinking about his age in Korean years, and it’s just… Nope

    For your first question, I consider it an upgrade as I cannot think of mine as a downgrade in any case. Welcome to the world of us errand boys which will last perhaps forever. I have been considering tagging the DB staff so many times just to politely ask them to upgrade my status. I’m too bored running around like this and it has been ages!

    For your second question, I felt it was quite romantic at first; you know you can’t really force love. Even if he’s underage it doesn’t mean that he can’t love a person older than him; but I have to admit that I can’t FULLY enjoy it either. It’s true that he can develop feelings for her, but I’d say that I don’t quite agree with them going steps further into the relationship when he is yet a mature person. I’m guessing that this twist comes because there has to be something to result in heartache in the next episodes, and nothing hurts more than knowing that the person you love is still an underage boy who has been lying to you all along. I’m preparing myself for such (quite) unnecessary heartache which FL might go through soon.

I cant decide whether I like ep5 or not…
Some parts are too light for my taste
Some still have that dark supernatural feel to continue from last week eps but the balance is off
The humor, not working…not today show

    I wasn’t too thrilled with episode five either. And the last scene just seemed too contrived. I also didn’t like the kiss at all, lol. I want more of the investigative/supernatural element. I worry that the story might go downhill from here. That’s just my feeling. I am also tired of Kim Beom’s character.
