Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

If only…

As soon as I saw the Seo Ye-ji rumors I knew I had to go get these screenies to maliciously creatively interpret as shedding light on her character. But I didn’t recall exactly when this scene was so I started at the beginning — forgive me for spamming my wall with the goodies I found along the way.

    It’s not that funny when it is real life, is it?
    Now, I find her expression creepy… perspective, I guess.

    She is one of my favorites.
    If the rumors are true then she is done for. This industry is brutal and rarely if ever give an actress a second chance.

      If anything, you are only as strong as the person backing you. She’s in Kim Soo Hyun’s agency (for now lol), but she has powerful backing it seems. That being said, on a lesser note, look at Han Ye Seul’s career. She’s now an influencer because her career got stuck in limbo (despite the crazy schedule she was on). Only time will tell, but yes esp. in image crazy K-entertainment, she’ll have to repent/lay low for a while and come back in 1-2 yrs. Such a shame, I was really looking forward to her and Kim Nam Gil working together too.

        I never thought Han Ye Seul’s career was done with the “Spy Myung-wol” controversy though. Legally she had the rights to work for certain hours per day according to her contract.
        I’m glad she stood her ground and only apologized for leaving in the middle of shooting the drama.

        I think Seo Yeji’s case involved bullying allegations which put her career in more serious jeopardy.

          While HYS’s career is still ongoing, she still had to take a 3 yr hiatus which set her career back. She did the right thing given the awful shooting conditions, but unfortunately her career truly did suffer as a result. She could’ve been a bigger name, and she still works/given mains. It’s definitely not at a place where many thought she would be, but yeah she was blacklisted for several years until she came back with Birth of a Beauty.

          As for SYJ, oof. The domino effect unleashed a beast, that’s hard to come back from. Only time will tell, if she’ll be like other Korean actors and come back in a few yrs time. For now, she and Kim Jung Hyun will be laying low until then…

      And the other question — will any guy ever dare date her after all this??

        If you believe people can change then yes.

        The reporter that leaked the supposed dating stuff last year, said that SYJ has this magnetizing charm and charisma to her that makes people startled. If other creepers in the industry can still go on and be in romance genres, then its possible. But she’ll have to change up her image, and go through career ‘rehab’ and come out in 1-2 yrs in a project where she can be taken seriously again, possible not a romance genre where she’s playing a strong willed role for sure…On a vapid note, it does feel like we lost a really solid/charismatic actress, but I guess everything eventually comes to light…

    It is actually quite eery to think that the reason why SYJ was so effective as KMY is because she is KMY in real life. Sheesh. Funny thing is while watching IOTNBO, I also thought that KJH would be perfect as MGT. And Dispatch is quite scary in the things that they are able to dig up. This is messy all around.

With the Seo Ye-ji rumors, I couldn’t resist going back to get screenies to creatively misinterpret.

I think part of the reason people hated Sisyphus so much that is that it was absurd in the wrong ways and had the wrong kinds of flaws. Most other shows limit themselves to tried-and-true sins that viewers are used to and mostly accept without even noticing.

Rather than repeat myself I\’ll just transport myself back to 2019…

But here are a couple I forgot:
– CCTV that don\’t work and the cops never investigate why not and don\’t interpret that as a huge clue that someone influential is responsible.
– Trip kisses.

    I’m with you on this. I watched the finale, walked away pretty happy and then was genuinely surprised to see so much hatred for it on the interwebs. I shouldn’t have been surprised, but I was. I liked the show, thought it was good fun and creative. I don’t mind some unexplained stuff. I’m not looking to actually build a time machine. I think we’ve all established that is just not a good idea.

    I enjoyed your time machine back to 2019. Somehow I missed those posts the first time around. Probably because I was avoiding all the MoA complaints, because I enjoyed it and wanted to stay away from the haters.

    You are so funny! How did I miss those posts and your amazing wisdom a couple of years ago. maybe it’s amnesia?
    Generally if I don’t like a show I simply stop watching it. period.

    Sisyphus kept me engaged if nothing else to see if any of it at the end would make any sense.
    Nope. But I got a bean!

    What do you mean trip kisses are a sin people don’t even notice? Trip kisses are a total natural occurrence that could happen to anyone. 😅

    I didn’t watch much of Sisyphus because it wasn’t for me, so I stopped. 🤷‍♀️

Vincenco loves their Lord of the Rings references *cough*precious*cough* but show needs to know its place. LotR has giant eagles when the leads need rescuing, while V has to settle for smaller and cheaper birds.

Everything looks different now. All those times the Control Bureau failed to catch our leads, their leader knew they were going to fail. Knew they were SUPPOSED to fail. Might even have told his men to miss, etc, etc. Knew he was supposed to make everything happen the same as previous times, so our leads could [redacted].

Tae-sul is rolling his eyes because the bad guy is holding a Beretta 92. Those are for good guys, like Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon, this show (it’s what our FL has under the decorations) Kang Chul in W – Two Worlds, etc. Baddies are supposed to carry Lugers because of their Nazi association, like No-Face in W.

      Yes, it was. Even though I utterly despise the “no backup copy” trope, I laughed at this scene.
