Q1. Explain your username (and/or avatar).
@maybemaknae – my username. At the time I joined db I thought maknae meant least experienced, not youngest, & I from my observations everyone else seemed to be a long long time kdrama watcher in comparison so I thought maknae would be appropriate.
__Alas now I know it’s an age term & not a seniority (or lack thereof) in experience term 😅😆
avatar – the masked mysterious guy from Trashdal. He was leaps & bounds ahead with guarding against the coronavirus. Yes that’s my story & I’m sticking to it. Ofc it had nothing to do with my weakness for dark, taciturn & mysterious pretty bois *hides*

    The whole when you say it was a misunderstanding instead of saying sorry you’re trivialising what you did & putting them onus on the victim for getting hurt. It’s underhanded & a subtle kind of manipulation that makes it feel like you have no right to your feelings.

    Q12. Your favorite drama has an unholy alliance with your most hated drama and produces a mutant baby drama. Describe the plot.
    — A germophobe bestseller writer in a slump meets a new ditzy curly haired hire at his publishing company while waiting for an interview who . It turns out she was his childhood rescuer & friend against thunder which was due to a past life connection where they both were revolutionaries against Japanese occupation. In that lifetime she died under torture on thunderstorm ⛈ day. Now she’s plagued with memories of her past lifetime, & the phantom trauma & nightmares combined with reversal of her family’s fortune in current time means she’s a frazzled incompetent employee who keeps stalking & following & messing with the life of of the writer ML.
    Together they’re a disaster tempting fate – he’s a jerk & she’s a candy stalker. Eventually their misgivings towards each other are resolved when the FL finds him two ghostwriters – a chic sly fashionable female (who is her bff, & whose mom is a shaman) & a past recounting visible only to them ghost.



    The shaman mom is against all the leads meeting each other & living another tragic lifetime together because she knows of another lifetime thousands of years ago where the FL was a fox goddess on a mortal trial & had her eyes taken away from her as punishment by the crown prince god ML, while the concubine who framed the FL when found out was sent away to East sea to guard a demon, but the King God had pity on her & put into a cryogenic sleep for her to wake thousands of years later as the daughter of the water snake that renegaded on her duties ; whose task now is to take care of both women as their guardian.
    The mom runs a moon hotel for all the ghosts & acts as their problem solver, to urge them towards reincarnation or Nirvana.

    So anyways with past life memories & ghosts wreaking havoc & the publishing company about to go under, the 4 unlikely people figure out ways of past to keep present afloat.



    The FL solves the guys germophobia & complex family problems & together all 4 write a book & record the progress & life as a documentary, which wins the FL a best newcomer award, & the guy another record breaking bestseller & literary prize.

     Finally the 2nd lead can let go of the 2nd FL to afterlife after being her human problem solver & financial manager, so that she can move on from her first crush of 20th century, on whom she fell & had her first kiss in school , confessing as a bimbo & being rejected & humiliated publicly… Then nearly dying in a house fire & bonding in the aftermath but ultimately falling near death after a rejection & being put under cryogenic sleep again for hope for a better life in 21st century by the mom.

    The shaman mom having fulfilled her duties, now all former ghosts leave the hotel & die or whatever & the writer + not candy couple live mundanely happy ever after.


      Is that Clean with Passion and Chicago Typewriter? Plus you have so many drama moments play out in real life rumi, my heart skipped a beat at point e.
