Lol- I've been outed. I am "drama- less " at present except for Padam which is slow going. I only know these things because I've edited several medical and a few legal based dramas. Part of editing subs is to verify all the different Korean agencies. I thought people knew that the national registration number has a fingerprint on the databases. Trust me- or not- I've had to go to the police website a few times checking offices and departments. I can't remember which drama it was for. It takes a bit of tweaking sometimes to work out the various government departments names when it sounds weird in English.
This drama already has identity theft. A teensy winsy hair strand is a minor point. I am just wondering how the writer is going to fill 10 episodes to be honest. By the way, I am here because the story is addictive. And the acting good. Am not actually a fan of all 4 main leads. Not even the stepmother. And yeah I should be learning new Korean words not be distracted by episode anaylsis. I've been slack and not paid attention lately and making an effort to watch raw episodes.
Jeepers. I am trying not to go off topic by discussing another drama. Unless something has changed; the viewers classification for all 2100hrs drama is NC 15. Haven't you all noticed the numbers at the beginning of each episode?
No 2, a post kissing scene where the girl is covered by a blanket and has naked shoulders. Plus a male lead with an unbuttoned scene meant that a bed scene has occurred. If we wanted full on nudity you watch a Korean movie. Not a Korean drama on primetime tv.
And now back to Mask, everything is so languid with MW one wonders what happens when he finally finds the fingerprint answer. The NFS has her hair strand anaylsis. By the way even by Kdrama standard unless he has EH's DNA previously how the heck will a random hair strand and a fingerprint prove that it is JS? Only the Police has access to the national database for fingerprints. I mean besides the various government agencies. Otherwise random Korean citizens can lift anyone's fingerprints and hair and request an identity. There has to be a privacy act somewhere. Who the heck would have their DNA stored on file somewhere to be compared against? They better not show a 99.9% somewhere on the report. 99.9% against who?
Sorry to butt it. I came here late and usually read quietly. I tend to not participate too much in soompi threads. As I find that if I apply logic I tend to make myself nuts. So just usually accept some inaccuracies. But since we're off on an absolute tangent the last several posts...
CS is an openly acknowledged spoilt rich boy. Used to being indulged by his mum. Belittled by his brother. A user and rude to others when he doesn't care about them.
There's nothing hidden about CS. Just because I didn't criticize him on this forum doesn't mean I didn't notice all that. Jk is a different kettle of fish. He portrays himself as something rather than what he truly is as a person inside.
Also, as an aside I've been active on the forums because I have no projects. And I've played enough, time to get back to " work ". €÷£%€_÷_× viki licensed 20 episodes of Padam without English subs so we're redoing it. So since HS is the only drama I am actively following I am commenting. And also I tend to watch it raw. So maybe I pay more attentions to their facial expressions when I say so far the character SJ shows more calculated devious expressions rather than his awakening feelings. I have to say CS and YJ are both really expressive too so yeah it's a good watch. Despite all the SJ comments I am actually enjoying this drama. But really need to get back to my projects.
I still have trouble liking JK. Remember everyone he started the friendship way back in middle school or high school. I have trouble liking someone so materialistic since young. Thats a lot of years more than 10 years. Douchebag CS or not- to be treated this way is not nice. Although as a rich guy he should have suspected motives from anyone. Still to have you BFF used you since school days is a different sort of sting.
So yeah, sorry, forget about the actor playing JK, I can't admire his character. Whether he's the male lead or not. Yeah yeah yeah I know he's going to be redeemed. But a ruthless personality stays forever. Eventually when he does become rich who's to say ( by which time the drama has ended ) that he won't be ruthless and underhanded again. So yeah, totally not swooning over his so-called caring, loving and understanding boyfriend attitude at present.
By the way, if I had a BFF for that long I would tell her to come. And if she was my BFF from that long ago, I would hope it won't be considered arrogance but more of knowing I need her.
Anyway... it is certainly a better drama than I thought.
I am not going to over analyse it. However no matter which angle I look at, YH definitely use CS's background to his advantage. CS may be spoilt and privileged. Rude and self- centred but at least he displays sincerity toward the people he cares about. CS and JK.
Currently all the current scenes seems to show JK having ulterior motives towards CS and YH. And for the life of me even if he seduces YH for her rich background, I don't see how fans can explain that he is developing feelings for YH when he cold heartedly reported her background to a reporter? That's calculations after cold calculations.
Does the writer really expect some of us to forgive him when he suddenly repents? No right?
I've watched episode 5. Er... I am slightly worried. How far will the skinship go before the s**t hits the fan?
I am reeling at the fast progressions from both couples. The female characters both confessed first and both are not afraid to tell the guys they wanted to see them. I would admit to laughing quite hard when I heard it. The writers are funny. I can just imagine some old fart saying " young people these days... "
In fact I am wondering if both couples will end up in bed before the big break ups. Man that would be interesting; when their families find out. I know the mothers would yell. I am just wondering how far it will go.
By the way, I have been working long hours myself. I am just wondering how many people start work before 8am but still have energy to cook, then go shopping and followed by cycling past 10pm at night. That is definitely in K drama land. I know people can be that energetic but... it won't be common.
Addit- oh my, maybe the fallout will be faster than thought. How can everybody find out in episode 6? You guys should watch the preview again. I think my heart might be palpitating now. Eeek...
I need the BTS. Imagine the epic drunk aeygyo and kissing scenes. Are 3 are experienced actors but between the really silly drunk behaviour that makes me cringe laugh for the actors, and the kiss? I just need to know if they manage to control themselves from laughing themselves silly.
I've watched all 146 minutes of episode 12. Omg is the writer nuts? I've paid to watch movies that long?
As i was watching it I was snickering. Knowing that the shippers here would be howling or cursing. The episode was much more bearable if you're nog fixated on a couple. So it had some enjoyable moments. Actually some epic moments. I literally laughed when the suck- up PD abandoned his dinner for the Toner Lady. Now that's true love guys. Right there.
CTH and GHJ were phenomenal in their last scene together. Great emotion. Such restrained emotions. And to be honest I much prefer KSH's acting here than his last drama. He reallgreally elieve in BSC. I really like IU anyway and she appears more natural acting as an idol even compared to her last 2 dramas.
Don't quite know yet what I'll say to someone about recommending this drama but it's certainly leaps and bounds above many others. I can't help it if some viewers are so obsessed with the lovelines they missed a good show. It's like missing the forest for the trees.
Excuse me and apologies for coming in, exploding then leaving the forum. I am about to explode and need to vent before going back to episode 12.
I am 20 minutes into the episode. Is the writer nuts? We waited all this time for the indecisive twit and now they want more misunderstanding? Are they kidding me? Sure some parts are funny but considering how many time she cried over him, it's not funny when GW is shouting all over he likes her now. And yes I've reached the part where he explains to her he was with her last night.
Gosh. I am so frustrated.
Also I nearly had a heart attack for the wrong reason this morning. When Hae Shil turned around and the guy was in bed next to her. One shouldn't dress him in a suit and lie him lerfectly flat in bed like in a casket. I was more freaked out than swooning.
Ok back to the rest of the episode. And by the way I don't need subs for this show. So I am pretty sure even if the subs comes out I can't understand the writers dragging them out from dating each other properly.
