There is black mold on the wall, the apartment is dirty… and yet you lay down on the bed… and go to sleep.

    I’m getting flashbacks to IOTNBO where I swear she went to sleep under blankets that hadn’t been cleaned in years. And all I could think about was a potential bug infestation she just decided to sleep under/on.

    She definitely is. Which is why she doesn’t like interacting with the village folks either.

    Or is it more defeated? The coverup is so grotesque.

        It is.
        Being a reference to the June 2014 Gangwon-do Goseong shooting broke that bit of “its just a story.” Though I can’t argue I watched DP for escapism.

      I’m not sure if I’m more disgusted by the people doing the bullying or those around him who could stop it, doing nothing.

        Yep. It’s part of the culture and taken as that’s what happens. “If it’s someone else, it’s not me”, I guess.

Is it ironic that IMITATION never resolved (onscreen anyway) how the Fins viewed FL. True it was anti-climatic that the couple kept going back and forth, getting together and separating, only for…

    it not to be brought up again. Getting a similar lack-luster feeling in YAMG where I question if ML’s issue was resolved but maybe I’m being too harsh on the ML’s internal conflict about the situation and then him realizing that maybe his response to the confession was awful.

    True. The Fins were pretty scary for a bit. (BUT WAIT, it’s crossing over into I Married an AntiFan.) Anyway, would they have accepted her once they started dating publicly? Not so sure. I guess the drama ran out of time. They also did not arrive at a proper resolution of the “hostessing” that Annie was blackmailed into doing.

      I agree. I got where Eun-jo was coming from when he said he did not want Annie’s public image to become a hostess. That didn’t mean Omenga CEO and NOG CEO should end up getting away with what they did. Couldn’t the reporter have gotten more information out of the General Manager since he wanted to see NOG CEO fall?

      I don’t think the Fins we met would have accepted Ma-Ha even if some of them had started to warm up to Tea Party. (Especially when the warming up to Tea Party seemed under the impression that Ma-Ha wasn’t dating Ryeok, which is like a setup for feeling betrayed by Tea Party.)

        Fans are unforgiving when it comes to relationships. It baffles me. Why can’t idols have real lives, like everyone else? Ryeok’s decision was brave. There should be more of it so fans get retrained. The financial fallout just has to be tolerated. Sigh as I write this, I wonder, ” in whose world?”

          The no-date policy in contracts not only seems unreasonable but also unhealthy.

          I guessed Yoo-jin/Hyun-ji were keeping their relationship a secret based on how execs reacted to Hyun-o dating. They seemed to make a good example of dating-being-healthy since I found their relationship to be motivating for each other (or I was interpreting that way).

          There might be a little bit of a tolerance being built (but I don’t really know a lot about the kpop industry so this could be debunked easily). In Kingdom Seo Eun-kwang (from BtoB) had indicated that he would like to get married one day. And there had been a comment by a melody on twitter that’s he’s brought it up a couple times so that person wouldn’t really mind it if he did get married because its something he wants to do (I’m paraphrasing, I saw this a few months ago). While marriage isn’t dating it is a bit of an opening for fans. Though I’m not sure if because he is older and at the age where people are expecting someone to be thinking of marriage they’ve found it more acceptable. (It might be bad I’m basing this off one comment I’ve read.) But it also got me thinking about BtoB fanbase and how they may also be older (or more mismatched ages) and so more willing to accept that he’s not just theirs.

            Hope you’re right. I was thinking of a recent example of an idol who was practically cancelled because he was going to get married. You might remember his name. He didn’t mean anything to me because I only notice them when they’re in dramas. But it was nasty.

            I admit I only watched Kingdom because I was waiting for the next episode of Imitation to come out.
            That sucks for that idol though.

Slept on it. She was owed both an apology and an explanation and got neither. Disappointing. (YAMG)
