The ONE? Come on, half the people in kramaland have amnesia. Most of our characters don’t remember past lives and how can we expect them to when most people in kdramaland can’t even remember to charge their phones?

2021 Roundup Day 31: New Years Eve Scene — Best Way to Say Goodbye to Another Plague Year

BTW, did you all see the joke on the internet a while ago about how 2022 sounds like “2020 Too”? I think “2020 Two” is better because it scales… “2020 Three”, “2020 Four”, etc. Cheers.

    One of my friends posted a 2020 tooth meme and was like “if you don’t want it to sound like 2020 too, just say two thousand and twenty-two”….she was deadly serious and completely missed that the joke still works when you say it like that.

Because you wasted precious time sticking with a show when it started to go off the rails and it only got worse? #ladylord

    They didn’t know what to do with Tae Soo’s character and wasted time on palace politics which was not needed. The first 4 episodes, had they kept the tone and momentum….anyway it was still a mindless fun watch.

Finally an honest kdrama – guess they can screw up space and science just as badly as everyone else.

I can believe LOCAL drought & water shortages, but those are water not going to cerain areas, not not water disappearing from the whole silly planet.

Their problems landing were a series of abominations. Do they expect billowing dust clouds in vacuum? Do they know the moon has lighter gravity even when you are hanging over a cliff? Do they know how fast you need to travel to get anywhere in space in a reasonable amount of time and what happens if you impact without rockets to slow you down? I may be extra sensitive about this garbage because my father was a rocket engineer and worked on the U. S. space program. I remember him telling me when I was a kid about problems getting early Moon probes to land softly. YMMV but I couldn’t stand it

    Yep. It wasn’t my favorite part of the series. Specially being the first episode. That would turn so many people off.

Recent news headline \”Another man involved in Seongnam development scandal found dead\”

S. Korea blurs the line between fiction & reality again. You can\’t hang around kdramaland for long without running into shows about real estate development corruption and accompanying suicides, whether real or faked. You should figure there wouldn\’t be so many writers making such a big deal of it if there weren\’t some real-world incidents to piss them off inspire them. So headlines like that shouldn\’t be a total surprise.

But the important word there is \”another\”.

Where there\’s smoke there must be fire someone burning the evidence.

    You probably know that there has been a huge political scandal around real estate this year in SK. It always surprises me when I tap into actual events there how close the dramas are to rl.
