    Han Hyo Joo 한효주

    I think they are downplaying HHj’s role in the promo tour because of good ole fashion gender bias and sexism. The marketing is choosing to focus on the action and thriller aspect of the film so they’ve sort of defaulted to promoting to the male glaze. Their attempts at winning over the female demo is kpop idol Choi Min Ho and the eye candy of the male cast. It’s unfortunate and frustrating. HHJ is probably really shy because there’s already a boys club around her and if she’s outspoken, netizens would probably call her a sly fox or something lol. It’s a shame, but I think the film will do her justice. The material is good and it does seem like revealing too much about her character may be going into spoiler territory—which could be another factor. Still, the subject of the film is very relevant to Korea’s political climate, which affects men and women, so it sucks the marketing is so insulting to our intelligence.
  2. Whatever I loved it. I thought the character arcs were thoroughly completed and a lot of the underlying themes like prophecy, morality of war, preconceived notions, class hierarchy, all of the complicated love stories, perhaps even subversive criticism of the patriarchy, etc. were well addressed and explored. I’m surprised at the criticisms of SFHY because his character had the most evolution and the most interesting supporting cast surrounding him. I especially loved the women that he loves, who love him back and how they’ve contributed to his journey. I am literally obsessed with him and MYYS and am quite surprised there aren’t a million fanvids I can indulge in after finishing the series their interactions, dialogues about politics and just being forthright with their feelings and uncomprising alliances are so refreshing, lovely and, yes, tragic to watch. I will say the series could have been 15 episodes shorter if they cut out the flashbacks (which has always been an issue with mainland dramas since their existence sigh) and would have benefitted from it. Here’s to waiting potentially 5 years for the sequel if it even happens tho

    [Drama 2018] Mistress 미스트리스

    What a fun drama! I thought all the female characters were deliciously evil and badass in their own way and everything made sense so no complaints from me. Happy SH made it! Was cheering on JS because i can’t help but sympathize with women suffering from battered wife syndrom/victims of abuse so i am glad she came through in the end. and how could anything JW in response to her husband cheating on her for years, sexually assaulting her, ignoring her, objectifying her to merely a baby maker so he can make money off her child, etc. be morally equal and thus hypocritical? That’s like saying someone who uses force in self defense is morally equal to his/her violent attacker. YR also didnt have leukemia, she had pneumonia. If it werent for the symptoms of the pesticide poisoning showing itself first, they wouldnt have discovered it on time to operate on her. JS inadvertently saved her in a way.

    [Drama 2017] The Package 더 패키지

    Easily in my top five list for best dramas of 2017. So beautiful, intimate, contemplative and intelligent—I’m so enamored by this drama. The package along with woman of dignity and the age of youth series make me want to watch everything Fromm jtbc.

    Maybe song jiwon will only die in name. She has to fake her death and change her identity for the time being after exposing very dangerous elites. Am I breaching into makjang territory?

    I mean those events can definitely depicted as memories. They're things we need to see as well as the girls catch up with each other and we catch up with them. Have you seen the movie Sunny? Kind of like that. Or like the US show, Veronica Mars. Anyway, this is just one way she could go so don't humor it too much.

    @Lyna I don't think she dies because of her health, I think she dies because she was breaking a story that powerful people don't want publicized. At least that's the impression google translate gave me when I tried to read one of Eu Bin's interviews. Season 3 might be a thriller again. They could possibly go forward in the future, Jiwons funeral will reunite the girls and have them uncover Jiwon's demise.

    I think AOY will always be the show that gives us what we need rather what we want

    This drama will always hold a special place in my heart. AOY1 was the last drama my best friend and I watched together last year. I remember her not believing me that it was adult diapers in the land lady's bathroom and wishing YE Eun had better closure to her story, too. She was in really good spirits going into surgery that week, but then she died from cardiac arrest on the operation table. That's just life being bittersweet and this drama captures it very well. I strangely feel like Kang Yina waking up in the last scene. I honestly can't string together the words to capture how poignant and significant that last scene meant to me. But what I'm trying to get at is dont be too upset at the ending. I think the writer is so amazing talented and is more competent than anyone gives her credit for. Besides, s2 has even better ratings than the first so chances of a s3 are high.

    Didn't understand a single thing but I loved it. The only thing I'm disappointed in is YE didn't make up with yoo kyung and kyungA and Eun didnt make up with Ye Ji. However, I also understand why it's more poignant and impactful that to have loose odds and ends in this type of drama. This season was pretty great.

    @chickfactor regarding JM's past life in the epilogue, from Dramabeans: The girls are put under hypnosis and asked about their past lives. Jin-myung describes a busy marketplace full of Korean independence fighters waving flags. She’s there too, shouting something, and the therapist writes down the guess that she’s Yoo Gwan-soon, a famous freedom fighter. Then suddenly Jin-myung barks in Japanese, “Kill the Korean!” (The hypnotist immediately scratches out Yoo’s name, ha.) (This gives new meaning to the adage Selling out your country in a past life to explain your current life’s suffering.)

    Gotta give the writer credit for having the ovaries to sink a popular ship. But it shows that she puts the girls and their bond first rather than their romances. @chickfactor YE may have disordered eating. In one of the epilogues this season, it was revealed that she was an overweight child and her teacher advised her parents to monitor her weight at home; we also know how overbearing her mother can be and that could manifest itself into disordered eating on YEs part (speaking from firsthand experience here) Furthermore, in s1 she seems to define her worth by the man she was with... idk there's a lot going on and I don't want to assume too much because without subs, I don't know if YE is having some sort of relapse because otherwise we've only seen that she's quite comfortable indulging when she's with her girl friends OR if she doesn't want Ho Chang to see how much of an appetite she has and be turned off by it because she still needs to work on knowing her worth beyond male validation. Not to mention, she tends to assume very traditional gender roles when in a relationship thus regular bodily functions performed by women are frowned upon lol. I feel like it must be the latter because to introduce an ED story right now so late in the season would be awkward and irresponsible (the writer shouldn't have gone there with Ye Ji either). but yeah, Jong Yeol is not a bad guy. I wouldn't call him normal either because what is "normal" ?? lol he's just too uncomplicated and not emotionally equipped to support a girl like EJ. When he realized that he isn't what she needs or she isn't what he wants, he broke up with her rather than wasting more of their time and taking advantage of her, which is the right thing to do. Sometimes things just don't work out and no one is at fault.
