Beanie level: Errand boy

Remember 2014 Promise 2021 is a documentary 7 years after the sinking of the Sewol. 35 students were rescued; several tell their stories. I wish them healing and peace as they remember those who died.

Master in the House biggest prank ever with Rain, bam! It was stressful to watch even knowing what was going on. Ciipher debut Mar 15, fighting! Rain is a task master! Guys it was a joke, but wow!

    Oh my gosh this ep stressed me out so much! Poor Donghyun was crying even, haha. It didn’t help that I know this stuff goes on for real with other kpop groups.

    Anyway their song is pretty good. I’ll hold off on watching any live performances, though, I’m too scared!

      It really was stressful. Eun Woo looked like he was holding his breath out of shock , and Sun Rok barely moved for fear of a Rain thunder cloudburst. I actually felt bad for the members who must be stressed enough as it is! I hope Rain treated them to grilled meat!

        I think Eun-woo empathized. I imagine he’s actually had similar experiences. Last episode he talked about how he got criticized at a lot while he was a trainee. Watching these kids probably brought back unpleasant memories.

          He did. Taking notes and all to be helpful later on maybe. Thoughtful.

    Yeah, I thought it was super stressful to watch, too, even knowing it was a joke. And I could totally see how people would buy it. With the exception of Tak Jae-hoon, who was a bit extra at some points, the three other main actors in this skit — Sang-min, Rain, and Tan — did a really good job.

    I felt bad for the other Ciipher members. They weren’t in on the dupe and it must have been really agitating for them. The leader of the group broke down into tears afterwards, though they didn’t focus too much on his face. A few of the other members like Won, the maknae, also seem shook up afterwards.

    I guess the maknae really did make mistakes though? He wasn’t in on the prank, right?

      Yes, I saw him cry too, he must have felt responsible as the leader. I think the first or second mistake was not make by Tan. Gosh, Rain should know better not to pressure them, but then he has stories about JYP that parallel in intensity. Se Hyeong looked stressed too and I thought Seunggri was going to call Rain out and tell him to lighten up. I was all kind of mean actually.

        I would understand the motivation behind being upset, but I don’t think anybody deserves abuse in the workplace. This is especially true of people who are so young. Their youth makes them especially vulnerable by people in power.

        Se-hyeong looked stressed. So did Seung-gi. They all looked perturbed. I felt super bad for Donghyun and Eunwoo, who both seem to wear their hearts on their sleeves. I think Sungrok might’ve been the most composed out of the lot tbh. However, I highly doubt Seung-gi would’ve intervened. I don’t think it’s in his personality to intervene to be honest. Not beyond what he was already doing IMO. I think he would disapprove and maybe privately talk to Rain if Rain were actually angry, but I doubt he would undermine Rain in front of Rain’s employees.

        I felt really bad for the leader as well as all of the boys. I wonder if Rain is usually like this with them. He said he isn’t, but that’s a completely self-serving comment.

          Seung-gi did his best from the stairway saying he got scolded a lot and they would be ok. He was rooting for them you could tell. And we hav e to remember this is pretty much Sang Min’s (bad) idea. I can’t imagine much positive feedback on this from viewers.

          What’s distressing is that this kind of behaviour is normal
          enough that they think he’s being awful but not surprised that he’s doing it.

        I think it was pretty mean – it was really compelling to watch but I find pranks like that more mean than funny. Especially because the other members of Ciipher weren’t in on it, poor kids!

          Yes I felt the most sorry for them, as if a debut isn’t tough enough already.

          I didn’t find it funny either. Imagine a boss playing a prank like that on his employees, minus the cameras. That would be workplace abuse, straight-up. And with people who are so young, well…

      Imagine thinking one of your group members was leaving right before your debut! Besides the emotional attachment, you have to redo the choreo and redistribute the lines. It’s just bad from all angles.

      Same, usually Eun Woo is just kind of there but I really was impressed with him. I feel the whole thing would give him traumatic flashbacks though.

    Just came from watching this and, man, I am not cut out for confrontation, even if it is fake. I’ll admit, it made me laugh at times, but most of the time I was just shaking in my seat. At the end, I needed a hug and I wasn’t even there.

      Yeah, I don’t like those types of pranks. I would have thought Rain would be more protective of his boy group.

        Yes, I agree. If all the boys were in on the prank, I think I would’ve felt better!

          True, it would have been more on point with the theme failure for Mater in the House members if the debut group all acted unprepared as the prank.

    It looks yummy and healthy Owl! Have you tried using a bit of soy sauce on top of the steamy rice? One of my fav dishes is steamed rice topped with 2 fried eggs and drops of soy sauce. It’s magical.

        If you can make the fried eggs a little crispy, the taste will be even better.

K-Drama Quote of the Day:
“I’m sure you had so many questions and wanted some answers from me.
I know you didn’t ask out of consideration.
I knew it all along but pretended I didn’t.
Instead, I hid behind your kindness.
I’m sorry and thank you.
Telling the truth is so hard.”
~ Eun-o, Lovestruck in the City ep. 15

Gosh, I don’t want to like Eun-o because she really is selfish sometimes, but thanks to the three schoolmates’ lighting the candle time (confessing in a safe place with friends), I’ll give her slack. (Who isn’t selfish sometimes?) Because she is SO right, “telling the truth is so hard.” And she recognized that she hid behind her friends’ kindness. I think I’ve done that before, too. It makes me want to tell those who are having a really hard time they can hide behind my kindness as long as they need to, and when the right time comes, we can talk and be honest. Bravo for friendship like these three Musketeers have!

11

    It takes courage to confess to her friends and apologize, and still she hasn’t apologized to the person she hurt the most. I can understand EunOh is going through an ordeal and she’s suffering a lot, but she’s dragging others in her pain out of pure selfish and cowardice. I get her, but she could have done better. Because she didn’t want to get caught. She didn’t have any other motivation.
    And regarding the friendship between the three, I also thought they were great, Geon and Rin-I were true friends taking care of her and never asking a question, keeping a warm place for EunOh to return. Are they friends goal? Not to me. The way the girls treated Geon after he told them he had broken up with SunYoung was mean, they didn’t pay him attention or cared for his feelings. They only said: you’ve broken up again with someone you’ve already broke up, it’s not important. Don’t they know him enough to know that if he’s bringing up the subject it’s because he NEEDS to talk?

    1

      I took it to mean that he could talk about it next candle time, that he could call a candle meeting of his own another night. It could look like they brushed him off, but I hope we learn otherwise. I guess I drew that conclusion when he and Rin-I were at the convenience store and they got the text from Eun-o and he let her have the evening to talk. And we can assume, I think, that they have been there for each other like this for a lot of years. So I hope their threesome friendship is evenly balanced.
      I agree that Eun-o is selfish and this is only a first step toward being honest with herself and all the others she’s deceived. And that it is a healthy transformation/growth for her. Glad you’re enjoying watching it too!
