    [Drama 2018-2019] SKY Castle, SKY 캐슬

    what a ride!!! the last episode may have been too full of laughter and sugary scenes especially since we've been used to high level twists, but thankfully all the ends were wrapped up... no rushing the finale... unlike other dramas I will not name . I will never have to create fantasies and theories about what happened to the characters. Prof. Cha remained a hoot to the end. That text he sent was the equivalent of the Drunken Truth song, and a realistic wrap up for his character. I agree. Realistically, will things change at a national and policy level? Probably not. Hence the scene with the VVIPs coming in for the consultation. It's a case of Rinse.Repeat, but the residents of SKY Castle know better and they laugh when the new resident tells them of her education plans. Can parents in Korea make a change with their own children? Yes. The ball is in their court now. The drama has made me think seriously about education. There's a lot I took for granted in my view of education, and hopefully I can make better decisions than I would have if I hadn't ever watched the show. Ratings at 24.37% Seoul and 23.77 national. I had hoped for 25% but this is better than I expected when I started the drama. JTBC have another promising drama coming in April called Beautiful World (same timeslot) that promises to be an issue-driven, adults drama. I'm looking forward to it.

    Its over!! The ending calmed my fears. Not perfect, but much better than I feared. I guess I'll have to watch Mexican telenovela for endings with complete closure. thankfully, we see marriage by June 2021 (get married now!!) and a Santiago honeymoon. (Have koreans started taking interest in travelling there? lol). And two kids. I'll definitely be rewatching this drama every so often. I needed some cavity inducing romantic drama since most dramas have been gritty and emotional. Seeing a Male character like KJH that's so loving, caring, considerate, honorable.... they've set up the valentine's day mood for me! He's now among my dreamy men, with Mr.Darcy, Alejandro from Sortilegio and JoKuk from City Hall.

    I was ready for today's episode...they obviously must break up, but I'm not sure if Korean screenwriters collectively decided that Aristotle was wrong when he postulated about Catharsis..... that's what we watch dramas and movies and tell gossip for, the release of emotion after being wound up in the last 14 episodes.... (we already suffered with Alhambra. She better not test me tomorrow night!!) It's like a thing with these writers... stab you, turn the knife and leave it in there.... with the blood of unresolved or hastily cobbled up endings pouring down your chest. They need to know Aristotle is called THE PHILOSOPHER for a reason! He knew what he was saying! Catharsis is the most important feeling in a story!! I want CSH to be the one to run after KJH. He's done enough. Let her come to him. Where does she think she's running off to? Cuba??? ¡por supuesto que NO!! I hope what we saw was her running to get back her man! As for KJH mother.... I was just annoyed listening to her. Best believe that I would have let my opinion be heard about that stunt she pulled. No Ms Nice Filial Daughter!!! I hope tomorrow turns out better. A definitive ending at minimum. They must get back together!!

    Despite coming from a different set up, this show has made me think twice about how to approach education. I wanted to judge the Koreans who were influenced by the show to get education consultants for their children, but if I think about it critically, there is some sense in hiring a consultant. I'm sure a real life consultant isn't as crazy as Coach Kim (I hope!! Lol.) The education structure in Korea would demand someone like this, so to be honest, the logic of a consultant, within reasonable borders and proper oversight by parents is something I can get behind. Also, in as much as Prof Cha is ridiculous, his analysis of the world is spot on. That's the way the world operates. Elite, upper class, middle class, low class. And education is a fundamental way to create and access these classes!! How do we level the pyramid? Make quality education accessible across the board regardless of your income bracket? Etc.... I was so glad to see YeSeo's dad finally break down and confront everyone. Some Korean comments I read from the links here had no sympathy for him, but kudos to the actor!! His crying and wailing was one of the highlights of the show for me!! Whoa!! He's learned his lesson quickly and is willing to learn the lesson for the greater good of his family. I want to castigate SuJin but the writer has made her dilemma so understandable that I can't even hate her for picking the leaked exam papers! Her acceptance in the family is predicated on YeSeo entering SNU. They have worked hard and honestly, only to be undermined at the very last moment. YeSeo is innocent of the theft but will pay for her parents greed... man, what decision do I make so that she is spared the consequences??? But SuJin still a manipulative liar who needs to learn a lesson..... Writernim is amazing!! Shoot me but a tiny part of me wondered if that leak was deliberate,to excite people more and get even higher ratings. Even if it wasn't, if I was an executive at JTBC, I would see the upside of the leak. I'm still excited for the ratings though, I see extreme ratings on Saturday night!! I don't have much taste in fashion, but I know a good drama right from the synopsis! What will I do with my life after next weekend? PS. Someone should start a petition for Coach Kim to do a melodrama as the protagonist!! Too many evil roles! It's enough! I'm sure she'd kill it as a melo protagonist!! I want to see her in a kiss scene!! PPS: Why did Yeseo's dad shave his moustache!!! he was so daddy with it!!! PPPS: there's a composition that was played in ep 18 called Ma Mere L'Oye (My Mother Goose) You can read more at this link . "The Ravel Mother Goose suite (Ma Mere l'Oye) is a charmingly delicate and imaginative little suite of fairytale pieces.....Ravel first wrote the Mother Goose Suite in 1908 for two children whose parents he was friends with, in a four-hand suite for solo piano. The children, Mimi and Jean Godebski, were extremely fond of him since he told them fairytales, some of which he made up on the spot!"

    I don't know about y'all, but I'm out of theories. I'll just wait for whatever will happen because Writernim is determined to shock us!! The last few minutes of episode 16 had me watching my screen with my mouth open, and I'm not exaggerating!! This drama continues to serve comedy alongside a thrilling story and societal issues. Seeing the parents fighting, Prof. Cha spitting on Doc while defending his daughter with the arguments he had rejected a few scenes earlier just shows the quality of comedic writing and acting. The friendships keep shifting, with characters falling out and making up because they need to gain something from one another, and inner biases showing in times of crisis. The dignified and sober Seung Hye had avoided judging SuJin but finally showed her prejudice when she called SuJin with her commoner name during the argument....KWAK MI HYANG!!! That scene was as jolting as it was hilarious, but very much in tune with the lyrics of the OST. "We all lie, tell you the truth..... play with a mask, to hide the truth....". This Castle is full of fakes, but I would also have called SuJin by her name in such a situation, just to shut her down before she plucks off my lips... Like everyone else, I'm so excited to see the stratospheric ratings!! It was an obvious hit right from episode 1 scene 1! Hopefully it can get to 25%+ by the final episode! I expect that the SKY Castle will implode, as shown when KiJoon broke the pyramid. They all need to come back down to the even plane of the round earth. Every family is facing a crisis that threatens their existence. Professor Cha and family may have a headstart in confronting their problems, but they're not out of the woods yet. How will Cha respond to being dethroned? How will the father of HyeNa react to his wife hiding the truth? ( I smell a divorce unless they can learn from their mistakes). Will YeBin lose respect for her mother? Will YeSeo be saved from Coach Kim? What's the deal with Coach Kim? As for Kwak Mi Hyang, I think the writer chose that name because it rhymes with the QUACK that she is. So I call her Quack Mi Hyang.....

    Episode 12.... giving me cavities!! 1. Did y'all see the marriage proposal? CSH accepts!! 2. Mr DOP, with the portaits ... 3. This painting was intriguing to me. Sistas all ready to slay!! I wish they'd tell us more about the painters and the paintings in the drama!! 4. Why was this desktop wall paper from Windows 10 on display?? Is it because its a beach photo? They're taking this portrait thing too far!! 5. I haven't read Little Prince yet, but I would love to hear what you make of this shot. 6. I am not a fan of turtlenecks... they could quite possibly be a fashion travesty, but KJH is looking soooooooo amazing here!! OMONA!! Shiny tears!! 7. Product placement as it should be. Unintrusive! LOLLL!! KJH should have tested the springs/foam in the mattress!! CSH! Why would you kick your boyfriend out into the cold after he tucks you in? Let him sleep on your bed! You don't have to do anything! Just let the guy sleep comfortably, especially after he threw so many hints!! 8. The wolf reference.... 9. The storm clouds gathering on the horizon overwhelm CSH, distracting her from her work. She hesitates in signing a document, puts it away, goes to a corner of her office, and is so overwhelmed she folds down, almost into fetal position. I really felt the weight of her dilemma!! 10. When KJH is taking the food to Ms Lee, he listens to "One Leads to Another" by Robbie Nevil. The lyrics are very much the love story of KJH and CSH. 11. I know JWS is receiving justifiable hate for his behavior right now, but I think he's setting things up to redeem himself and help CSH completely cut off from Taegyeong. His meanspirited talk is like his request for a divorce, making himself look like the bad guy to save CSH. Being a weak man, his only strategy in life is passive aggressiveness and sneaky backdoor machinations. In my conjecture, I think that he will impale himself on his mother's sword and save CSH by possibly giving CSH the shares he's accumulated. She can end up as majority shareholder and have the hotel to herself. I do not want to walk away from her hotel empty handed in the name of love. She has paid for that hotel with blood, sweat and tears. She should keep it! 12. I like how the Secretary thinks she cannot ride in a delivery truck, but a wealthier CSH has no problem riding around in that truck!! Secretary needs to come off her high horse, considering that she doesn't even have a car of her own!! 13. The conversation in the office... KJH needs to keep reading what he's reading because I melted when he said, "I cherish you very much!". I would climb mountains for a man like KJH!! Cherish is such a beautifully loaded word! Cherish - protect and care for (someone) lovingly. adore, hold dear, love, care very much for, feel great affection for, dote on, be devoted to, revere, esteem, admire, appreciate; That statement is like the Spanish phrase, "Me Haces Falta" - I Need You. Loaded. Next week is going to be hell for our couple. Chairwoman will come down on CSH, KJH will be collateral damage, CSH's dad will have to confront Chairwoman and tell her to her face that he's not running for president, CSHs mum will throw a major fit at her husband and daughter, our couple will suffer for their love, but as far as I am concerned, we better get a happy ending!!! Not a sad ending, or worse still, an open ended one !!

    So they totally trolled us yesterday with the kiss scene..... Anyway, we still got a beautiful kiss which szdhaushakjhfadsjhsdhjka. 1. That opening animation was so scary y'all!! And you could hear the wolf walking!! The beast overwhelmed the animation with its bigness!! I'm terrified for our couple!! Thankfully the boy is holding a star, and the girl pats the nose of the wolf in the ending animation. There is big trouble ahead, but CSH will fight the battle and subdue the wolves, with KJH by her side. She is no longer alone. 2. I was definitely waiting for the horizontal salsa scene..... Directornim!!! Dunno about y'all, but our girl put our boy to sleep!! I insist!! She put him to sleep!! 3. This couple is visuals on overload!! That whole sequence in Cuba, riding around in the car, on the beach and in the tree lined lane in SK... I would have bought what they were selling!! WOW!! Such beautiful shots!! The director is going crazy with the photos and portraits as a motif!! 4. Mr Smooth Operator with the Killer Kabedon!! I was pouting my lips in anticipation!! My favourite scene is definitely the drunk scene, when CSH remembers what she did. I loved that reversal!! And that kiss sneaked in there!! Drunkards never lie!! KJH teasing her with the song brought the whole scene together perfectly. I'm sure there were important things to uncover in this episode, but I was more engaged in the visual feast that was on display!! Such beautiful people! Such beautiful shots!!

    Towards the end of episode 1, we're being set up for the poem about meeting again and the stars. CSH and KJH have a fantabulous time in Havana and eventually separate. They sit in their hotel rooms and bask in the warm feelings of their experience. They're grinning ear to ear, the smiling must be hurting their faces, but who cares! El Malecon was perfect! The camera pans out from the two and turns towards what they're looking at, the skyline and sky, with conspicuously twinkling stars in the sky.... continuation of the stars scene (because animated gifs can't be too long) Hindsight is truly 20/20!! lol!

    [Drama 2018-2019] Encounter / Boyfriend, 남자친구

    My train of thought was set off by that shot of the broken camera viewfinder. It's been driving me crazy!! But first, those portrait shots from the DOP. CSH on the way to Cuba, her image in the window, then the camera pulls back and we see her in the seat. Despite his positive vibe and open character KJH is passive in his interactions with the world. He watches the world from behind his camera and learns about the world from books. Our first view of KJH is him behind the camera, taking many photos of Cuba. All good, after all he is a photographer. He studies the world, he does not participate in it, he does not experience it. He doesn't seem to have had a girlfriend and learns about love from books. He observes people and things studiously from behind the lens, and notes the life lessons he's learned in his diary. He meets Samuel... He is sitting at a beautiful square but barely watches it, preferring to read. he takes a photo of the bird.... He must be pushed from passively studying the world from behind the camera, into actively participating in the world. That's why his camera breaks. Also note, in the crash scene, KJH doesn't get to see CSH, which is a key thing we're being set up for. (CSH is watching him from inside the car, which is obviously the glass screen between them.) The negotiation happens with Secretary and KJH tries to take a photo. KJH doesn't want compensation because memories cannot be compensated. But whose memories are they? His memories of other people's experiences. He's constantly watching and learning from other people, not experiencing life in front of the camera. Especially in our age of selcas. Public service announcement....Another one of those DOP portrait shots.... we jump to CSH at the hotel is being warned that something is about to happen in El Malecon, something perfect. Back to KJH, now that his camera is broken, he can finally participate in real life. He's attacked by a cutie who wants him to dance. He dances for a while with the girl on the street. His camera is not present. He now has some salsa dancing experience. The little girl is gonna come back later as CSH, lol, and he'll use his new moves on her. Elsewhere, CSH, ever observant as she discusses the camera issue with Secretary, makes a realisation as she passes by KJH on the streets. All this time KJH has not seen her. Later, they're on the way to El Malecon and KJH tries to use his camera. He spots CSH in the broken viewfinder but now has to put his camera down to look at her. He finally sees CSH, not as a subject to study photographically, but as a person. He's looking at her, not studying her. Of course, a bit later, he sees her almost fall over and runs just in time to catch her. He would not have been able to react fast enough to catch her if he was busy taking photos. His camera is slung across his shoulder in "resting pose". This is as opposed to someone actively taking photos who would have had the camera slung around one hand at least. CSH then nods off on his shoulder. We've already established that CSH is asleep to the world. She moves around on autopilot, barely experiencing anything. At this beach, she has taken sleeping pills and sleeps them off... She wakes up, and the two finally see each other, minus the obstructions in their lives, KJHs camera and the effect of her pills. This is the first time they look at one another consciously and lucidly. edit; as someone who loves to travel, I realised how much time I wasted taking photos and shopping for crap. Nowadays, I enjoy just being in a place, people watch extremely, take mandatory photos and shop for gifts on my last day. Minimal souvenirs. Thankfully I didn't break cameras for that... Maybe I should have, then I woulda met Mr Namja Chingu!!

    @bebebisous33 , i want to tie your post about the stars with the comments wondering why the director put the balcony scene in the episode when it clearly belongs to another episode. When I first saw that balcony scene, I was so blinded by the lights from the hotels that I almost missed the balcony magic. Firstly, I think the director is milking the poem for all its worth, and the balcony scene just fits the poem perfectly. The city lights are bright, but there are also stars in the sky, very much like the meeting of these two under a multitude of stars and HD lighting. Secondly, now that they've teased us with the balcony scene, I bet you the coming episode will show a spike in ratings because we want MORE!! tvN for the WIN this year!! I've gotten two kissing scenes here and in Alhambra (what an improvement PSH,lol), I mean, can the year start on a better note? Also, as far as I'm concerned, that artwork of the girl coming down with the stars means a whole lot of stuff, but also that they will have to do the horizontal salsa in Cuba. Please PDnim, crew and cast, do not waste the opportunity to give us the horizontal rhumba. You can play some rhumba and have KJH reading yet another poem or quoting some writer, whatever, I don't have to see them to know what they're doing!! Jebal yo!! Away from the kiss, when Driver Nam started talking about the person he couldn't approach, I started laughing because it was so obvious who it was. I felt so clever when CSH confirms it by saying she won't spill his beans to manager Kim. Lol! Did anyone else notice the painting in CSHs window? She's like a painting hoarder at this point, girl, I'm worried!! I see paintings everywhere! This drama has brought out my inner detective that I had rested after My Ahjussi. Why is the painting blocking the view of Seoul? Why would she place it there? Would it be a place she has visited or has fond memories of or wants to visit? If someone can tell us which painting it is or the place in the painting, we can solve the mystery of the painting in the window. @ahdrianaa I'm trying to decide between Mexico and Cuba for the summer, and I think Cuba has pulled ahead thanks to your brilliant post!!

    Y'all!! Whoa!! I didn't even bother with screenshots tonight because ...... DAYUM!!! Come thru sis! Come thru!! That kiss scene was spectacular!! He gave a small kiss with a smack, and I thought, hmm, where's this scene going? Then he goes back in for the kiss! She responds! The camera doesn't zoom out for a drone shot!! her arms go round his back! It's becoming more passionate! He's leaning in! They pause to stare at one another! And it went on and on and on...OMG!! Then the shot changes to overlook the bright hotel lights and I spy something at the corner of the screen!! OMO OMONA OMG!! She better be feeling nauseous in two months!! That kiss on the balcony is what I need to start the new year!! My soul is currently over the Atlantic, headed for Cuba because this is the year of Namja Chingu, my chingus!! They can barely stand straight, they're leaning against one another to adjust for stability, they're stumbling around...That scene sent me over the edge! I can't!!! I love it!! Also, whoever did KJH's wardrobe in this episode was determined to destroy me!! He looked absolutely exquisite in the black trouser, white shirt, grey sweater, black shoes.... His entire get up can cost 30,000 won for all I care, but men who dress like that , simple but elegant, they drive me slightly crazy!! Those visuals were meant for me!! I won't even bother watching any other drama tonight!! I'll just replay the last ten minutes!! Someone mentioned earlier today, around 20 pages ago, that KJH needs to step up and be the one to protect CSH otherwise he risks being seen as dependent on CSH. His going to Cuba and convincing the owner is his way of stepping up. It's very much in line with his character to take a long trip to see the important person, use words and letters as his tools to convince the hotel owner, just like JWS would use his power and machinations to solve CSH's problems from the shadows. EDIT: KJH should leave another note at the café, asking CSH to marry him. Then they can come back to Cuba and we can have Cuban passion and a proposal!!

    [Drama 2018-2019] Encounter / Boyfriend, 남자친구

    I will agree with you... However, since I normally don't have high expectations of SHG delivering passion, I can let her delivery of skinship pass. Are they trying to mute the passion for the sake of Korean viewers? Like some have said earlier, this is a job, they should deliver. Make us feel the longing!! However, I don't know what Korean viewer factors the production team has to consider, so I will live with it. I have a hypothesis about SHG. I find her acting style to part of an overall SHG brand strategy. She excels in the crying scenes, her characters are almost similar in the way they present her sophistication subliminally, which provokes a sponsorship and advertisement flurry. It is no mistake that she takes her time to choose her dramas. It's almost like her comebacks are to reboot interest in her after the break she takes in between dramas. I bet you the acting fee she has made from the drama is nothing compared to the advertising and sponsorship money she has made since her comeback. If someone can assist me with a list of her sponsorships, I would be grateful. (I'm not sure English media has this comprehensive info.) However, I'm not mad about it, she knows how to leverage her image and brand for income. Get it GIRL!! MAKE THAT MONEY!! Episode 9 was beautiful... The many portrait shots from the Director of Photography. You Stanley Kubrick fan you!! CSH concentrates on the drive, all composed probably trying not to overspeed, but her body language betrays her. she twiddles her fingers impatiently on the steering wheel and I was LEGIT moved!! Honestly, shiny tears are her signature move!! Our "telepathetic" couple - They live through a pathetic one month, then somehow wear similar coats on the day of their reunion. Lol. When they made this break in their hug, I EXPECTED A KISS!! It's been one month!! I don't know about y'all, but my love language is physical/touch, so best believe I'm responding to that hug, and we will kiss the hell out of each other, and I will suck your soul and bone marrow out of you!! One month fam!! One month!! The easiest way to get me to melt. When a character uses this line, it cuts right through me!! I loved her confession! She's so honest about her fears, I was one with her in this scene!! The most important scene was when CSH and ex-hubby met. We finally got to know how the marriage was, terrible. I believe that if Hubby had stepped up to the plate and defended CSH from his mother, CSH would have fallen for him. She expected that from him. Who doesn't love a strong man!! So when she told him how she cannt forget how weak he looked as he looked on helplessly at his evil mum, I understood her fully!! Weak men suck! I sincerely wish ex-hubby will find a love he deserves, and the spine to protect that new woman from his mother. However, his last statement betrayed his jealousy. It seems he does not think that CSH and KJH are serious, or expects that they won't last. Or maybe he's clutching at straws, hoping he still has a chance. Wind is param in Korean. My ears always perk up when I hear the word because it also means affair. Ex-hubby seems to think that she's having a fling, but expects her to come back to her senses. No wonder CSH gave him a sophisticated eyeballing, picked up her stuff and left the room!! Bro, NO! That horse bolted in Cuba!! Finally, A "FREE" CSH comes flying and swoops in for her "book lover" The show lasted 1hr10min, I watched it for three hours... be still my poor heart!!

    As always, episode 12 was amazing!! Couldn't catch my breath until the end! Guys, do y'all think that the writer of this drama is Lee Soo Im in the drama? The dialogue between Lee Soo Im and Young Jae's dad about whether to write a story on their misfortune became so clear to me after episode 12. The writer is debating whether to use the real-life story of SeRa Kim in that dialogue. She justifies her POV, that she wants to shed light on something affecting families deeply but doesn't know how to reconcile using real-life stories in her "book", this drama. Once she has explained her POV, SeRi comes back home in ep12. Prof Cha now seems very much like the real SeRa's father, smitten, proud and bragging about his daughter's success, like any parent would be. The revelation of SeRi's mess was hilarious and sad at the same time. The auntie, so flustered and mixing English and Korean because of her anguish was hilarious, but Seung Hye trying to hide the horrible truth from her ecstatic husband while listening to the revelation was sad, and hilarious. That poker face wasn't happening! Writernim, you be killing it!! I want the two to remain evenly matched and spar against one another! I'm currently watching a daily drama where the villain, even as we await the last episode being aired today, has not been arrested, and has committed crimes so evil Koreans complained to KBS about the message the drama is projecting. Murder, assault, fraud... Everyone else in the drama is still in her clutches!! Episode 12 threw up some interesting insights. when Coach Kim goes back to her apartment and switches on the entertainment system, there's an opera playing, which I Shazam'd. The Opera is ErlKonig, Op1 D. 328, a version by Jeno Jando. Erlkonig is a poem written by Goethe about the death of a child assaulted by a supernatural being (WiKI). Here's something brief about the poem. It seems that the drama uses the poem to show children are being haunted by the pressures of the education system, but the parents don't listen until the child is dead. This is an English translation. You can read the poem history and translation here, https://www.britannica.com/topic/Erlkonig https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erlkönig_(Goethe) As I said before, whoever is doing the scoring for dramas this year needs a raise and a holiday!! Amazing stuff in so many dramas! As always, SKY Castle with the hilariousness. JinJin in shock Now that her secret is out Su jin doesn't even bother pretending to be nice anymore!! lol! Watching Coach Kim as she watches her daughter.... I know she mostly plays the villain, but her acting chops are amazing!! And she looked super Kawaii in the drama press conference! Hopefully these gifs can stay in place......

    This drama will give me a heart attack!! Ep11 was moving so fast, I was clutching at my chest in the middle of the night! Hye Na moved in and her tie to the family was discovered in one episode! That is a new record for dramas! Seri is shaping up to be another live wire. I doubt she was actually accepted to Harvard, or if she was, she went to America and discovered what "the home of the free" means in the American anthem. If she is in Harvard, I bet she has a GPA of 2.2 in class and 4.5 in clubbing. Her poor, lovely mother! But Prof Cha will probably go nuts! I think Seri has come back to show Prof Cha that his methods cannot work. He is too full of himself to learn from others, so he must learn from his own experiences. The twins are the biggest beneficiaries here. Their parents will change their approach and they will be saved from the education grind. Hye Na is owning that role!! The preview scared the crap out of me!! I love the comedy in this drama. Writernim gave us another brilliant commentary into the impact of educational suicide when Soo Im chatted with Young jae's father, but when Jin Jin had her hair pulled, I laughed so hard. I still want Jin Jin to come out from under Su Jin's clutches. She needs to start winning against her! The status tables must turn soon! BTW, I noticed that there were many shots in Episode 11 that focused on the characters hands and feet. Why do you think that was so?
