Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

In #MadForEachOtherEp12, the breakup of Hwi-oh and Min-kyung completely broke my heart. I felt very sad, emotional and unfunny. But however, I had my own two predictions for the final episode (or episode 13): a.) did Hwi-oh commit suicide? or b.) did Hwi-oh and Min-kyung have a good reunion after a brief years?

    My prediction is that she’s all dressed up because she’d going to meet the guy and his mum to settle. It breaks my heart.

    The whole episode broke my heart

      I’m wondering that, too…is she settling just to end it and be done? Is she settling to protect?

        After Hwi-Oh got arrested for assaulting that piece of sh*t, his boss was talking to Min-kyung in the hallway. I bet he explained to her that Hwi-Oh needed to settle that assault case in order to get his job back.

        Plus it was purely the abuser’s aim to get her to settle so that he could avoid prison. I’m guessing that’s why he was needling Hwi-Oh (not that it took much) and now he’s got the upper hand in forcing Min-kyung to settle

          Yeah, Hwi-oh fell for the set-up. What a mess now. It’s just heartbreaking. I just want them both to continue to heal and to have happiness, however that looks like for each of them. Wondering, too, if ep 13 might be longer than 30 mins. It feels like there’s way too much to tie up in a half hour!

    I just saw the preview for ep 13, and it looks intense. My heart is definitely racked right now.

      I haven’t seen the preview yet but man ep 12….I need a happy ending!

        It’s hard to watch two people who have been through so much pain, and who are trying to heal and move forward, have to go through more. I know these journeys can be long, and they are certainly not linear, but it touched my heart that they were able to experience some sweetness, even if it was fragile. Hoping we get a strong finale.

    Why would Hwi-oh commit suicide?

    I loved this cameo, and couldn’t imagine a better choice for an aged HeeTae. He nailed it.

Myung-hee was dead and gone. My prediction was correct that Myung-hee was the skeleton. #YouthOfMayEp12

https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/art/2021/06/688_309970.html Singer/author Kim Jin-myung (pictured) historical epic series Goguryeo will be adapting into a epic TV series. It was licensed through entertainment agency IOK Company, currently on screenwriting stages and it slated 100 billion won ($89.7 million) which it responded to lack of epic historical dramas being produced in Korean entertainment scene recently. It was the Korean version of Game of Thrones and its book series currently 6th of 10-part (note: the 7th part will be released on June 14) which expected to end next year. No broadcast date and channel yet.

    Oh I totally agree on the dearth of epic historical dramas… But is it really necessary to market it as a version of Games of Thrones? Goguryeo is awesome on its own.

https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/art/2021/06/398_310079.html That is why my fave show Dark Hole ended with one of K-drama flops of 2021, joining Joseon Exorcist, which was historic K-drama cancellation, on this list. #JusticeForDarkHole

    I watched all twelve episodes of DARK HOLE and now consider myself along with the leads a DARK HOLE Survivor.

    Thanks Jezz for the article. I think it is a fair description of how bad DH was. I watched it to the end out of loyalty to Lee Joon-hyuk (1984). In the article he is quoted as saying:

    “I sincerely thank every viewer for watching our series.”

    My response: “Lee Joon-hyuk you are very welcome. Now please don’t put me to the test again like you did in DARK HOLE. Good luck on your next project.”

      The quotes from the actors at the end are just as cliched as any kdrama ever.

    Great pics. They are nice and clear when you click on them.

    Re pic #1. Request to Oh Man-seok. The last two dramas I have live watched you in are YOUTH OF MAY and BEAUTIFUL WORLD (2019).
    You gave fine performances in both dramas but please be a good guy in your next drama or maybe a comedy?

    OT/ I am going to copy a post of mine from the Feb. 6, 2021 WWW:
    “ Well @wishfultoki this week you sent me down the KBS World rabbit hole on YouTube (and skipping through ads I haven’t had to do for awhile lol).
    I had an enjoyable mini Oh Man-seok retrospective (2 dramas from the KBS Drama Special Series).
    Based on your recommendation I first watched the four episode sageuk THE TRUE COLORS OF GANG AND CHEOL (2012). OMS was terrific as a Joseon private eye. After that concluded KBS World queued up next the four episode drama SPECIAL TASK FORCE MSS (2011) where OMS plays a detective in contemporary times but with the same name Noh Chul-gi that his character had in TRUE COLORS. It is like a prequel. Here he is teamed up with the wonderful Son Hyun-joo who was also in TRUE COLORS. I enjoyed both of the dramas.”

      @marcusnyc20. In that case don’t watch CRASH LANDING ON YOU. He’s a baddie there as well. (But he’s good as a baddie!). I need to get to SPECIAL TASK FORCE MSS.

Tragic Gwangju Uprising scenes I felt sad when this historic tragical moment made an intensity and a deep, excellent action-packed scenes. Also, this long scenes made me felt like attempting criminalizing human rights. So I knew that now middle-to-senior Gwangju Uprising survivors are exactly what they would-be classified as infamous war veterans. #YouthOfMayEp10

    I watched the film A Taxi Driver this weekend, about the Gwang Ju uprising. It’s very hard to watch and makes me fearful of how Youth of May will continue.

      I love that movie! It was painful to watch but is worth it.
      If you have time, check out ‘1987: When The Day Comes’. A movie about SK’s democratization as well.

May 17, 1980. The tragedies are coming. The infernal Gwangju protests could leading to the prelude of the tragic Gwangju Uprising. That was May 17, 1980 – the day before this historic uprising. During emotional Episode 8 of Youth of May, Myung-hee briefly moved on without Hee-tae and it meant a brief relationship between Hee-tae and Soo-ryun. Also, I felt tearful too when Hee-tae broke his own tears while riding taxi and I simply called me as Hee-tae Taxi Blues so what a lot of my own wasteful tears again. The more emotional, the saddest storylines they had. Later in this episode, Myung-hee tearfully met a male priest for asking her help that ended up comforted both of them. Then, after church, Myung-hee saw Hee-tae for the first time at Gwangju Park Hotel since his brief affair with Soo-ryun. With only four episodes left with only two weeks left, I am expecting to see some tragedies during the Gwangju Uprising including main characters as their stories would seek revenge by Ki-nam and other protestors. Bracing myself for tragic storylines/plotlines! #YouthOfMayEp8

    I’m on ep 4 but I think I’ll wait for the show to end to binge watch it. I don’t think I can handle weekly heartbreak like this, I’d rather have it in one go 🙁

The beginning of the end. This episode marked the beginning of Gwangju Uprising and I think Myung-hee/Hee-tae relationship was already over and heartbroken. Also, this episode was the biggest painful and the most emotional yet episode that included Myung-hee broke down her own tears when it broke my heart completely with this episode because of evil Ki-nam, communism-related (during Cold War), and of course, the Gwangju protests but I am looking forward for the tragedies with only five episodes left. #YouthOfMayEp7

    Kinda scary to think Dispatch/media has a file of celebrities’ secret photos just waiting to be revealed at the ‘right’ time.

      It’s pretty interesting timing that the story popped up alongside of the one of him leaving his agency when his contract expired.
