@Jellybn reminded me of Hymn of Death. This is the actual recording of Yun Sim-deok, Joseon’s first professional soprano. Yun and Kim U-jin committed suicide together in 1926.

      So do I. Just as long as Suzy doesn’t jump up and down and scream in every episode.

        I think she’s doing a pretty decent job so far. It looks like she’ll put in a performance like WYWS, and I liked her in that show (in fact, I liked that show period).

          Yes, my irritation factor isn’t that high. I just hope she has agency, not only sister envy.

          Not watching this show yet but I’m glad of the positive reception it’s getting. I, too, liked WYWS and Suzy in it.

The Closet (2020) Ha Jung-woo, Kim Nam-gil, and Park Sung-woong – in the final 10 mins says something surprisingly profound. I’m not into horror, but I love these actors and they surprised me.

    From Yonhap news:
    “The Gangneung piece … showcases the city’s famous outdoor fish market as well as the Naksan Buddhist temple. It also shows the filming locations for K-pop superstar BTS’ music video “Spring Day” and the sensational drama “Goblin” featuring heartthrob Gong Yoo.”

    How many times does the rabbit appear? Is its liver is okay??? What kind of animals appear?

      He’s keeping me going. I’m up to episode 7. 😊😊😊😊 The second one is from the film Believer, the first thing I’ve ever seen him in. I haven’t seen him in Reply 1988 yet. 👀👀👀 Or many others that I am looking forward to.

        I love his movies! He has supporting roles in
        The King and A Taxi Driver but I think his badass characters were in The Battle: Roar to Victory and Believer.

          He was heartbreakingly good in The King. The other two TD and TBRTV are on my must watch list. He blew my socks off in Believer. I didn’t care that the film didn’t get the best reviews. I also loved Cho Jin-woong in it too, but then I’ll watch anything he’s in as well. 😳😳😳😳😳

Lee Jung-eun: She’s in everything. I’ve seen her in A Piece of Your Mind, When the Camellia Blooms, Hell Is Other People, Mr. Sunshine, While You Were Sleeping, Fight for My Way, and Parasite.

    Until she was 40, she worked part-time jobs, including a tutor and employee at a supermarket. She had to borrow money from other actors.

      Damn! It’s very hard to make it in this industry. There was an episode on Happy Together with actors who mostly play secondary characters in several drmas and they all had a hard time because they aren’t really paid that well either, which is why we see them so often.

      Whoa, nothing really comes easy! Happy for her achievements! She is a good actress, a reliable ahjumma (but had to think twice though 🤔, kidding aside, I love the various range of her characters!)

        It’s a bit shocking, isn’t it because if you look at everything she’s been it, she’s like the backbone of kdrama, and the roles she plays are so varied. She was so cheerily creepy in Hell is Other People and so enigmatic in When the Camelia Blooms. She does scary, angry, older woman to-whom-wrong-has-been-done very well. I thought she was stunning in A Piece of Your Mind. She got “grieving” in the most heart-rending way, and that gave depth of the leads own grieving, and then she turned on a dime and added another level of humour to the whole drama. She is darkly convincing. And then there’s Parasite, especially the moment when she appears at the door in the storm.

          True that, she is darkly convincing! I love her when her characters have this vibes of dark and mysterious! Haha

      because too naive to know anything (big eye roll) 😛

      i can’t believe doctor doesn’t even know that a boy chose to stay the night in… should be good news for homeless folks if they ever run into one

      ( ALSO, what about if LJ wasn’t there to pay the bill. would hospital not taken her in? And what is the deal with ex to be husband.. this series is running on thin script)

            I agree. I didn’t want to say it though. The first time I saw her was in Black – early in my kdrama life, so I wasn’t too irritated. I gave her a pass in Haechi, partly because she was off-screen for an extended bit. I blanked her totally in You’re all Surrounded – I just can’t remember her, and yet I vividly remember the rapport between Lee Seung-gi, Cha Seung-won. LOL Her range seems v limited, and Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol confirms it.
