    Did they manage to introduce a hobae doctor, or a son of a-friend-whom-I’ve-known-for-so-long, etc … to you before you find a way to exit?

I can’t believe how TERRIBLE the communication in this family is. I’m really enjoying this drama, but it won’t go down on my favorites list because I find this so frustrating as a theme, lol.

There is a difference between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation and even disregarding this discourse, anyone who thinks it\’s okay for a show to mine another culture for comedic purposes needs to seriously reexamine their thinking.

    I promised to ignore this drama completely but I don’t understand how people don’t get this. The fact he’s supposed to be Korean doesn’t excuse this, it makes it worse.

    I hate that people write excuses for this and no these aren’t black people, you can tell because they are blissfully unaware of its history as you can judge from comments, I have a liberal white friend making excuse for it….I no longer even voice it…its pathetic

    I’m staying away from this writer (Son Geun-joo) and this PD (Lee Myung Woo) as much as I can from now on–

    The writer for writing something so tasteless into a drama and the PD for allowing it to pass and getting it to air

    I’m not watching it, so I cant really speak to how bad the character is, but it surprises me how people are bending over backwards to discredit any hint of racism or problematic characterization.
    Like I’ve seen people write paragraphs on why a show is ruined because of a wrist grab or a truck of doom. Or just debate on how something can detract from a show but why they still like it.
    But not with this.

      It’s hard to reason with emotions -_- especially if people feel like you are attacking them personally. I would make everyone read/watch Robin DiAngelo if I could. Like this: https://youtu.be/45ey4jgoxeU

      If we could send ego and fragility out of the room, maybe we’d have a chance. I don’t know why it’s so hard for people to say, you know what, I didn’t see that before, but you’ve given me something to think about.

      I don’t think anyone wants to police the dramas people watch, but I want to know that my fellow drama fans out there care when some of us are being dehumanised, and they would be willing to do the terribly difficult task of giving up a drama in order to send a message that no matter how good the good parts are, we refuse to accept the package so long as it contains these unacceptably bad parts.

      There are way better dramas out there I still haven’t watched, I’m not going to cry for one dubious one that certainly ain’t gonna cry for me.

        White Fragility. I keep meaning to look into this, because I’ve seen people say the book is a great learning tool, but also difficult.
        Have to be sure I’m ready to listen and fully process.
        Thank you for the link, I’m adding it to my YouTube library.

          I think the book gets quite academic and while it’s excellent, it isn’t easy. Whereas a youtube vid, slightly over an hour, is incredibly watchable and salient and I’ve been spreading that one far and wide. Good watching!

            Also, I think you can dive in even if you don’t think you’re ready. I don’t think you can be ready when the very purpose of her work is to make people uncomfortable. And it bears rewatching multiple times. I’m rooting for you 🙂

Any idea on the actual location of this gorgeous set?

I know this was supposed to be funny but I’m actually really disappointed with the writing on this. Ju-ri had the potential to be an interesting character, to have a real conflict and history that colored her interactions with Moon-young, but no, instead she’s really just the simple, jealous second lead who Moon-young wasn’t super-nice to when they were like, 8? Really, writer? Really?!

    I’m very disappointed in her arc so far. Maybe it will get better. Maybe she will get better. I hope so because the jealous 2FL with a childhood connection/crush/grudge is getting a wee bit old. I don’t know any women who would be this way.

      Years ago I wouldn’t have even blinked at this, but considering the better-written second leads we have in Dramaland these days, and considering the fact that this drama is trying to do things a bit different from your normal show, this makes me sad.

    But did you see Kim Mi-kyung’s face in this? I think she was looking at that character (her daughter) the way we all were—like, really, girl? You’re supposed to be my daughter?

    At the beginning she felt to me like the real psycho here, but watching this scenes, I dismissed the idea.
    And although that thought was more interesting, I think they’re taking this comic side, and then she and Sang In will have something. I mean, their scene at the pizza restaurant was too funny to watch. Just an idea.

    she turns/interprets happy endings into hypocritical society’s twist endings and turns/interprets tragedies into romcoms 🙂

    let’s just say she is highly functional EQ person who knows exactly when and how to manipulate/argue to her favour

    also..he DOES NOT mind her calling them romeo and juliet 🙂
    he is completely in sync with THAT comparison

    lol.. this romance is going to be so heart fluttering.. and i guess we won’t get a kiss before ep 10/11

        (thsi series is so dependent on the sexual tension, i wonder if they would want to give that satisfaction to viewers this early)

          Thank you I wonder if they’ll reeneact his scene with Sulli in his last movie before enlistment.

          Even if the writing is one of the best for now I think they might follow the structure of kdrama story. We’ll see.

            sulli??

            why would they refer to anything to do with such big controversies..

            it won’t even come across as the ode

            0

          It didn’t occur to me as controversial, I think that media made it very controversial and somehow shame worthy. Sulli was beautiful in it.

            no i meant she is dead.. and because of bullying..it would be weird if they try to do anything..
            no matter what they do, it won’t not be twisted

More Nana because I’m a little in love and tbh I’m bored when she’s not on my screen

Being so beautiful should be illegal

I’m watching the first ep of Memorials and Nana’s got that Hong Seol hair going on.

You know, I always find it curious that there are so many idols out there who, while captivating on-stage, can never seem to translate their charisma as a performer into their acting. This is my first time seeing Nana act (but I’ve always LOVED her as an After School member) and I definitely think she’s an exception. This role is full of her cracktastic Orange Caramel-like energy. I hope she’s having as much of a blast as it looks like she is! The directing is also complementing her SO well with such on-point editing.

I feel like there are lots of roles lately where the female leads have the chance to just go all-out and I love it.

Also, kdramas seriously just keep getting prettier and prettier as the years go by! Recently so many of them have been truly cinematic.

    I first saw her in Roommate (variety/reality show) back in 2014. I didn’t realize that she was good until I watch movie The Swindlers. It’s so good to see her improve and play different roles 😊

    She was also good in the Good Wife. Maybe I was already so biased when I watched the show because I was blinded by her beauty. She’s doing really good here too.

    This is my first time watching her, and I really like her.

    It’s getting harder for me to watch older k-dramas given how cinematic newer ones are.

    Kill It was a mess but she and JKY were just so pretty in it that I had to just tune in. (Another underrated idol actress that I think is able to generate a lot of charisma onscreen is Dasom of Sistar.)
