Binged 8 eps of Insider
random thoughts:
– Story and Plot is slow paced, but interesting enough to keep me glued.
– Starting 2 eps were fast, then it slowed down, now 7th n 8th ep had plot moving forward! Hope it speeds up in the second half!
– too much gambling! (It’s hard for me to uds some terms, since I don’t even know the a-b-c of cards and all)
– High on violence, but not that dark.
– Preview of the 9th ep better not be true, and just be a misunderstanding, their bromance was the only light thing in the drama, plz don’t ruin it! (iykyk)
– People are watching it for Kang Ha Neul, I’m watching it for the lady below! Haha, Lee yoo young!

      Thanks @swunnie for the shoutout. I am glad you are caught up and you have a good analysis.
      Once the prison episodes began the emphasis was on Yo-hun/Sun-ho. I am a fight guy but the number of beatings Yo-Han endured was impressive. I called him the anti-Lee Joon-gi!
      I think the episode 8 cliffhanger is a fake out as I believe they all have been. The Yo-han/Sun-oh bromance will continue. Now on the outside Lee Yoo-young’s Soo-yeon will take on more importance. INSIDER is becoming one of my favorite dramas of the year. I think quality will continue to the end.

        Yo-hun/Sun-ho’s scenes were my fav, some lightness in that dark prison politics, I hope we see them together as a team in coming eps!
        one more thing, don’t you think this prison environment was little too much, I mean yeah shady things do happen, we have seen it dramas too, but to this extent?! Everyone was okay with whatever happening (people dying or poisoned) as long as they got some cash, or like the guard addressing a prisoner with honorifics and prisoner taking guard’s stick and beating people infront of him and then returning (at that scene I was like damn, wait what’s happening? lol)
        also, I felt bad for the kiddo, he was adorable!
        I’m looking forward to soo-yeon’s arc! Sisters teamwork was impressive!

          Let me just say that I am sure the Korea Correctional Service under the Ministry of Justice is not amused at the portrayal of prison life in INSIDER lol. To fully enjoy this drama one must definitely suspend disbelief.

    Lee Yo Young is always very charismatic

      isn’t she? I first saw her in Tunnel and was totally in awe of her right from her first appearance, she has that calm yet something hidden beneath type of aura!

        She is also great in My Fellow Citizens

          oh yes, totally! I have paused that show after 4-5 eps, will continue later!

        TUNNEL (2017) (Viki US) (5 stars!) was my first LYY drama followed by YOUR HONOR. I loved her performances in both. I missed her next 3 dramas.

          same pinch! I have “The lies within” and “You Drive Me Crazy” in watch-list!

            I LOVED You Drive Me Crazy. Kim Seon-Ho and this actress looked lovely together.

    Definitely too much violence..it’s rated 18 on Viki, I didn’t even notice initially, but it sure makes sense!

      I don’t think even one episode went by without beatings, most of the times I fast forwarded those scenes or saw them on 2x, hah!

Extraordinary Attorney Woo

I’m enjoying it (surprisingly), superb first episode, looks promising and I’m already liking the characters so far, so yeah I’ll gladly give them 2 hours of my week, ha!

One more thing, most important, the way they’ve portrayed the Autism (so far) is very accurate, without any exaggeration, for eg. Echolalia (the way she repeated sentences), Bracing themselves before doing anything new, Sensory overload (in court, first fight scene, in train) and then her coping mechanisms (listening to whale sounds, or using ear plugs – even seeing whales- iron looking like a whale was the perfect example, so very accurate) also the way she walks and swings. I’m glad they’ve researched it well, it shows.

    I just watched the first two episodes and was enamored with PEB from the first scene. I’m loving the new cases every episode.

      Yes, same here.. also it’s light on law too, small cases getting resolved in an episode is better than long dragging cases!

    The writing is really good (so far).

      I hope it continues to be as warming and compassionate as it was in 2 eps!
      I can’t believe I’m already counting days to watch next episode (after a while I’m watching an airing drama, hehe maybe that’s why)

I finished My liberation Notes today…

The way I see and describe a good slice-of-life drama is on the basis of what it made me feel, simple…plot, story, ost or anything else is secondary… Just what it made me feel… (and + points if it taught me one or two things)
And MLN made me
Feel seen…
Feel heard…
Feel felt…
I saw myself in all the characters in tiny li’l bits, it made me realize it’s not just me that feels this way – and however cliche this may sound, this feeling of realization assures and comforts me!

Out of all characters to whom I felt relatable most was Chang-hee, ofc not in everything (for eg his car obsession, or continuous speaking habit, ha!) Apart from these I felt him, I saw myself in him at many places and easily understood him, the way he wouldn’t give up on things, the way he tries to solve or avoid situations, the way he dealt with people, the way he never gave up and the way he cared for others (esp. in the last ep – I would’ve done and chose to do the same – at this point I was sure I related with Chang-hee the most)

When mi-jung said once smth along the lines of “People like me can’t see things to an end with people the way you want, Even fighting with someone is hard for me” I felt it, I was like me too mi-jeong, me too! heh

And without being embarrassed I’ll say in some ways I saw myself in ki-jung too, the way she gets easily teared-up, taking stand for siblings etc…

As for Mr. Gu, I still haven’t figured him out, maybe I will, one day…

      Good Morning/Evening,
      Dear FOS fan Sir/madam,

      We request you to decide on which side you are as early as possible so that we can include you in our promotion team.
      People need to see how perfect, amazing, awesome, excellent (put all good adjectives here) show FOS is! So in this good cause will you be a part of our team?
      Even if you don’t want to be a part, can we please request you to not spread bad words about our promoting tactics, (hunt/bite) please?
      We hope that you take this seriously, otherwise, we will be forced to take some measures, don’t forget we also have some Intel on you, (We know all abt your favourite dramas and Actors and crushes)

      Best Regards,
      From one FOS fan company to a doubtful FOS fan!

        Um good morning/good evening!

        Eh i don’t want to sound too serious so let me tell you directly:
        I’m actually torn.

        I’m a fan of FOS, like big big fan. My dream is to be stoic like Hwang Shimok, have friends like Han Yeojin, and be bothered at times by someone like Seo Dongjae.
        That’s how much i like fos.
        I’m a pushy person but… not that pushy. I’ll host a party if people on this earth are all watching fos. If they don’t then, whatever😂

        What make me torn is, you.
        I’m having too much fun teasing you, and you do bite. That’s why it’s more fun🤣

        So it means that i’m on neutral side?
        No. Not really.
        I guess if someone else is promoting fos, i’ll be there to cheer them. But if it’s you… it’s a different story?🤣

        Please accept the fact that i just simply adore you.
        And beanies, please watch fos. It’s fweaking good.

          “i don’t want to sound too serious” wow wow, you first started it formally with “signs” and all, so I had to go two steps further make it more formal, and I suppose I did a good job there! no? (jk)
          ohh same, I also want to be like han yeojin, I’m gonna buy turtle necks and wear it the way she wears it. (fangirling)
          oh, you better start preparing for the party, cause Imma make it happen!

Why does it feels like everybody’s in some kind of drama slump and not just me? I was thinking abt the recent dramas and I realized after Human Disqualification, there isn’t a single drama for which I keep waiting every week,,,and that reminds me HD should be in one of my lovefeb post, oh so here it is! I’ve told this multiple times now, but I really loved every minute of this drama, it doesn’t follow the typical kdrama structure, it has it’s own charm, the stillness, the screaming silence, speaking stares, the tension, and oh so realistic portrayal of Humans .
I saw myself in the characters at many places, ‘the feeling of not becoming anything like Bu-jung hit with me’, ‘the fear of failure not letting me try anything new like Kang-jae resonated with me’! And then all they said worked on me like magic, even now when I’m at my lowest I imagine bu-jung saying ” it’s not what you become, but what you do that matters…life is not about titles or so called success but choices – what you choose to do, say and who you spend time with.” and this comforts me on another level.
Here’s to the best drama of 2021 that I’ve watched,
Love, February

You are not your age, nor the size of clothes you wear,
You are not a weight, or the color of your hair.
You are not your name, or the dimples in your cheeks.
You are all the books you read, and all the words you speak.
You are your croaky morning voice, and the smiles you try to hide.
You’re the sweetness in your laughter, and every tear you’ve cried.
You’re the songs you sing so loudly when you know you’re all alone.
You’re the places that you’ve been to, and the one that you call home.
You’re the things that you believe in, and the people whom you love.
You’re the photos in your bedroom, and the future you dream of.
You’re made of so much beauty, but it seems that you forgot
When you decided that you were defined by all the things you’re not.
‘Not’ by Erin Hanson
