When I started reading the Nevertheless, webtoon, I planned on making a detailed post outlining all the differences between the drama and webtoon. But by the time the finale rolled around, I was just so done and over it that all I could muster up was this rambling, slightly incoherent rant.

But thank GOD it’s finally over, even after I suffered through all 10 episodes.

    It’s a very coherent and excellent synopsis of the weary pointlessness of it all.

    I’m also very glad I pressed pause after episode one because I was afraid this very thing would happen despite people saying, “But no, the webtoon… ”

    Kdrama gotta kdrama most of the time, but maybe that makes us appreciate the outliers even more. (And it’s not just kdramas that love this toxic romantic trope, but hopefully no more will include butterfly tramp stamps)

      Thanks, egads!

      Yep, this trope is pervasive in pretty much every medium. That’s why reading the webtoon was so refreshing. Ah, well. Some day I’ll get that drama where the heroine ends the story sexy, free & single. Some day.

    “And when happy lesbians can’t even make me care about the drama, you know something went wrong.”

    I wish they never have been part of this show at all. Na-bi’s arc, or lack thereof, erases all the positive things about them.

    Thank you, Mindy! It was a very interesting and beautifully written article. Now I’m fully convinced to stay away from this drama.
