Somewhat I hope that SY would feel confident about himself.. that he would be able to control his emotions and superpower and perhaps saving the day just as what a superhero would... 
Perhaps he would be able to free (safe) SIW from the mafia Director Jo??
Perhaps he could continue working at the airport without feeling small and different due to his able body... 
Perhaps with YR by his side he's able to feel confident about just the way he is... 
Because he was aiming to be normal and to be happy just for a month... which is sad....


But I am hoping he would be normal and happy for the rest of his life..
with YR...
What is normal anyway.. I am sure we cannot put a standard to it..
After all, we are all different.. Unique, to be exact.. Don't you think?
So... I hope SY would overcome his own fear and be confident...
Regardless on his wheelchair or on his metal protector...
He is just SY, the bright, smart, calm, kind, polite, gentleman, straightforward guy.
*** with sexy yummilicious body no matter what ***  :love:
 

Yeah well... this is just my hope for our dearest SY... 

PS: does anyone else think that SIW and Manager Yang would develop a love line? (Since they're one of the main characters?) Just curious...
 

I want manager Yang and Security Head to be a couple!!

@nona88@thefungster @USAFarmgirl@ktcjdrama @Tasia After the last episode, it becomes clear why SIW is pushing LSY away:

- the fear that his secret might be revealed

- the guilty conscience... he doesn't want to be reminded constantly of his wrongdoing and cowardice

- he wants to protect LSY as SIW is still involved with the thug (director Joo). SIW is a pawn in a greater plan and he doesn't want LSY to suffer one more time. His words underlined that something at the airport would happen and SIW was sent there in order to put the plan in motion. I have the impression that HS might become the real victim in all this. 

Nevertheless, I have the feeling that the divorce between LSY's mother and the ahjussi (SIW's father) happened before the accident. This would explain why the ahjussi said that he had heard LSY had gotten severely injured because of an accident. (25:07) Not only these words show that he has no idea how the accident occurred, but it also indicates that this man had cut ties with him before the accident. He only heard about it through another person.

However, I think that SIW might be responsible for the divorce... this would explain why he kept pushing LSY away even before the accident. In my opinion, on the one hand he resents his father and on the other hand, he blames himself for the pain he caused to others that's why SIW views himself as a bad person. He is certainly no saint but in my opinion, SIW's real major flaw is his self-centerness. 

that is one interesting theory.... one that i hope doesn't happen because honestly scenes with SIW... i just dont need him in the drama.... 

 

also, i think you are right about the divorce being before the accident, but now i wonder where SY mom went... 


I just want SY and YR to be happy!!!

Is it normal to feel aroused by the lift holding hands / aka soft touches gif by @MarJo_Lei  :wub:

How did LJH made even his hand seem sexy.. or was it just my eyes... :blush::love:

 

PS: Yes, I would really want Manager Yang and Choi to be together... not with SIW... ;)  I was just worried because on the poster, the 4 main characters are included SIW :phew:

I reallyyy like these 2 latest episodes (4 in current format). I'd never thought they would give us such cliffhanger. But it's time for HYR to heal LSY from his insecurities. 

I like how HYR (again) stood up for herself so I can assure she's really going through a character development, but of course thanks to YSK for giving such an advice and encouragement. Indeed when you suffer from any inner problems, you need to find someone who is able to encourage you to straighten up your problem not only criticize your behavior / decision. 

In previous episodes I was somehow disappointed with LSY because he seemed a bit reckless and stubborn, but I made up my mind slightly because he portrays humanity, sometimes we don't understand other choices, what we think doesn't make sense or illogical would be the best choice for others because basically we don't know what others are going through, so I'd try to understand him. Also he didn't know before why was the reason his prosthetic becomes malfunction (I think it didn't happen at all before he met HYR, thus he was a bit laid back about it?), and it wasn't like he was going to a war either so it wasn't that wrong if he wanted to go on a date. But after he realized that it related to his emotion he took caution by making a distance. And after a rollercoaster ride in this episode, finally he embraces his weakness but.... the next scene was so sad seeing HYR getting stabbed and LSY's fear :tears: Their acting though are very natural and their eyes speak emotion :thumbsup:

 

 

P.S. there are so many favorite scenes especially in eps 21-22 from the beginning their phone call, before-lift scene-after, NYJ-ODK scenes, SIW and LSY talked their heart out to each other, goguma incident which ended up with great conversation between them in restourant, and of course heartbreaking confession from HYR to LSY is on repeat :D

This drama has tons of glaring problems (like seriously, many of the airport cases are not quite realistic), but what it does right is in the characters that populate this drama. The drama somehow managed to imbued warmth throughout its run, and I appreciate the contemplative tone that it has taken. On top of the awesome characters, I think what the drama has done best is in creating one of the most moving romance progression in my recent memory. It's rare to see a kdrama OTP who is so balanced in their relationship. Both of them are so giving towards each other. And there's something about YR and SY as a pairing that somehow makes something as ordinary as holding hand become such a momentous moment. All their romantic moments, either big or small, always felt so sincere and heartfelt.  

 

I think this week's episodes belong to YR. I was completely moved by her bravery to face her demons (in the shape of a bully); plus her patience and understanding towards SY. One thing that I appreciate about YR as a character is her simple kindness to people. For example, when she witnessed DK and YJ fighting after he let the mafia guy got away, she helped the housewarming party happened to cheer YJ. But she's not expecting thanks from YJ for doing that. Similarly, when she stood her ground and not ratting YJ's name to Team Leader Choi, she's not expecting thanks or anything from YJ. She did all of those just because and without any expectation. I remember that the homeless man once said that she has a pure soul. And I agree with his assessment. Her biggest flaw is her insecurity that can be all consuming for her. Which is why having people like Team Leader Yang and SY as a calming force for her nervous energy is the best growing process for her. Both of them know how to direct her in a positive direction without making her feel small and incompetent, or emasculating her agency. Case in point, when Team Leader Yang gave her the pass. Even though she gave YR advice, she lets YR decides on her own what is best for her.  Stripped from her constant need to prove herself due to her self-confidence, YR is actually quite astute in reading about people (except probably reading ES true intention. But ES kind of bring it to himself by squandering his chances). Which is probably why she can understand SY at almost telephatic level. It's interesting how similar SY and YR's confession is. When SY confessed, he did not expect anything from her. He gave her space to think through her feelings. Similarly, when YR confessed, she also didnt expect anything from him. She gave him space to decide what he wants. This is probably one of the healthiest relationship that I have witnessed in kdrama. Yes, SY is hiding things from YR, but YR sort of have gut feeling about it and she understands, through her past experience, that everyone has something that they fear to let other people know. I really like the title of the last episode so much: knowing your pain vs embracing it. She may not know the full extent of his pain, but she damn sure tries hard to embrace them. It takes a special kind of bravery to be able to do that.

 

Lastly, because this is becoming such a long post, my suspicion about YR being adopted is getting stronger and stronger. I wonder whether this is the secret that she's so afraid the girl bully to divulge . But I still cant seem to understand why. Unless getting adopted is also something frowned upon in Korea, which, if true, is very sad. I also wonder whether this drama depiction about how people in Korea treat people with disability is correct or close to reality. If it is, it's such a sad sad affairs. I hope this drama brings more understanding about this problem in the country.

I would understand when 10 years ago maybe people would look at SY on wheelchair differently, but I'd like to think things are different now in the society...

 

Actually, if I meet SY on the wheelchair, yes I would be probably be looking his way the whole time.... not because of his disability, but because of the wheelchair itself... how cool looking is that wheelchair... Did you notice the first time Jang steered it out? It moves sideways!! I was wondering how, but I kinda figured it out with the special rows of wheels it has. What an awesome innovation!

there maybe another reason too

but being adopted child is really a big things in korean , where your root , family background and so many things still so important there 

 

the fact she was once aponded child once, no information on her birth parents can hunt her forever in korea social life

she could be treated as dirty thing that don't deserve love as a child and a no root person as adult and that a big things there

 

sadly i am saying all that , but i watched so many asian dramas to understand that they still care so much about this things , but it not just asian people there so many places in the world and even there people close to us who still can't accept this things to be honest ,it easy to talk but you know person true believer when he has to choice in his real and personal life

i have problem too  with that.  in my country people don't go on and out the airport as they like , no that they even can pass through without a full securty checking , seeing people wounder in the airport without any reason all the time bother me and now even have danger tools 

but i take it as maybe it just there different rules in every place or that it just for drama story and i am letting it go , but in  the last ep that was so much but i also trying to let it go 

 

 

 

sorry for cutting your post i like it all , i have proplem to quot with my phone, so i will write about the other things you said , this week ep's for sure is YR ep's i would like to see more ep's about her standing , healing , protecting and giving her strong well and warm to sy , i want more not just this week 

 

 

yr did suffer a lot in her life it not easy to take all this emotional scars while you growing up , being abandoned child , finally having a family than the family break down and the father go away , being bullied in her teenage days and more

to be honest i don't know how could she still standing and trying to be  cheerful as much as she can ,, i can't balm here for her personality and trust in herself issues i can just be proud of her for not giving up and trying hard to keep living as best as she can , it make understand why she want to be special since she though if she can't have special ability than she worth nothing with her background , she needed to be in top for people to forget her past that she has nothing to do with it 

 

YR is more strong than she was shown in  the start i was wishing they will focus more about her wounds from her past it a big deal not just few flashback will be enough

As i was watching the last episode, i also noticed the same thing. I come to conclusion, lee seo yoon ssi, people are not looking at u because of your disabilities.. people were amaze by your fancy hi-tech wheelchair. That look like pimp my ride version of professor X's.

She's definitely adopted. They didn't use the word in the episode, but when she says "I was born in summer, but my favourite season is autumn because that's when I met my parents." It's a clear reference to the fact that this is when she was adopted. I think she also said to her old bully, "My parents both adored me, but I couldn't see it because of the abuse and hate you and your friends directed towards me." Is her directly talking about not being able to accept the love her foster parents gave her because of how she was bullied, and the shame she must have felt at being adopted.

My suspicions on In Woo still owing money is stronger as I now think he works in the airport just to pay back whatever he owes, which would explain why he's so adamant on trying to garner as much profit as possible even if it means neglecting his employees. His decisions sometimes don't make any sense to anyone but himself & he's too busy trying to expose Soo Yeon to think clearly. The latest episodes did make me think he's perhaps protecting him, but actions speak louder than words & In Woo has been nothing but a pain. If he was serious about keeping him out of danger, I feel like he wouldn't have attempted to make it harder on him. 

I'm excited for Soo Yeon to tell Yeo Reum the full extent of his disability, she knows something is off and I love how she's just showing support without pushing him to say something. She's the real deal & I'm glad she confessed to him because it made him even more confident to tell her. 

Eun Seob, I like him, but then I don't like how he threatened Soo Yeon like that. Yes she deserves to know, but he had no right to do what he did. 

Team Leader Yang is also a real one, she's always looking out for her staff & I love how she helped boost Yeo Reum's confidence a bit so she can stand up to her bully. It's an unfortunate thing she was bullied & it does explain her past behavior and why she reacts in certain ways. This episode also basically told us that she's adopted which is likely why those girls bullied her when they were in school.

Tension Erupts Between Lee Je Hoon And Lee Sung Wook In A Police Station On “Where Stars Land”

Nov 9, 2018
by C. Hong (source: soompi)

SBS drama “Where Stars Land” recently revealed stills of Lee Je Hoon undergoing a high-pressure investigation from Lee Sung Wook.

Spoilers

One of the secrets that Lee Je Hoon’s character, Lee Soo Yeon, keeps is the fact that he wears a prosthetic on his right arm. After suffering internal injuries because of the prosthetic’s malfunction, he decides to show Chae Soo Bin his true self, takes off his prosthetics, and uses a wheelchair.

However, since it was the source of Lee Soo Yeon’s great strength, security team leader Choi Moo Ja (played by Lee Sung Wook) soon began inquiring about the state of his prosthetic. Lee Je Hoon moved Lee Sung Wook’s character with his plea for one month’s time, but with the shocking discovery that magnetic materials were now attracted to Lee Je Hoon’s arm, Lee Sung Wook began to investigate the prosthetic again in earnest.

In the stills released from the drama, tension has erupted between the two men. Lee Je Hoon looks angry at Lee Sung Wook, but Lee Sung Wook looks at him as confidently as if he’s already found out the answers he needed.

There has been hostility between the two characters because of Lee Je Hoon’s secret from the very beginning of the drama. In the photos, the two characters have somehow found themselves at a police station, indicating things have taken a turn for the worse.

The production staff stated, “Next week’s broadcast will feature an unexpected situation with Lee Soo Yeon at the center and add tension to the story. Please look forward to the next episode with bated breath.”

I would like to think so as well.  Unfortunately, that does not always seem to be the case.  When we meet people one-on-one, taking time to get to know them very well, we may be able to look beyond the disability.  But upon first meeting, people are almost never able to do so unless they have deep familiarity with that sort of disability.  

 

Just for example:  Yesterday when I was putting my groceries in my car, a very elderly woman who had her car parked next to mine was having a lot of difficulty with her mobility scooter and with her shopping bags.  One of the cart boys offered to help her.  But he had to speak to her several times, and he was getting increasingly agitated because he thought she was ignoring him.  As a young and healthy person, it never occurred to him that the lady was going deaf and could not hear him.  But I knew because my mother also had trouble with her hearing as she became elderly.  I calmed the young man down, and I gently patted the lady on the shoulder so she would know I was talking to her.  And we helped her get things sorted out.  She hugged me and said that she was 90 years old but she didn't know how or why she had lived that long.  Bless her heart.  The young man didn't understand, and he didn't listen; he meant well but he had no experience with old people.  Hopefully he learned something but I kinda doubt it.

 

This is the issue in dealing with disability.  We have to learn.  We need to be familiar with the problems the disabled may face.  We will never be understanding or sympathetic until we do.  We need to know what sympathy is and we need to be cautious about looking down on someone who is different--it's a delicate line sometimes.

 

By the way, I am disabled myself.  I am mobile and I look okay.....but I'm not okay and I never will be.  My illness is not fatal but it is incurable and there is no treatment for it.  I say this only to explain that I know first-hand about some of the misunderstandings and the pain that disabled people feel when they are treated as something less.

 

In fact this is why I was so very angry with YR early on in this drama when she slapped SY when he said he could not feel pain.  Some other posters disliked my comment about the fact that this was abuse of a disabled person.  They thought I was taking it the wrong way but I was not wrong.  I still feel upset about her slapping someone she knew had a problem--that was childish and cruel.  In fact, I have felt sufficiently upset that I have not watched many of the episodes since because I want to spoiled about how this drama handles the important fact of SY's physical limitations before I put my heart into watching the remainder of the episodes.  It's a vital issue, and it needs to be addressed with sincerity.

 

Yes, I want to believe that something will change for the better for disabled people, and I hope that it does.  I hope that the disabled will no longer be pushed into the background.  But we can only change things one person at a time; and we have to be very careful at the same moment not to offend those with physical challenges because they need to be strong on their own terms.

 

Is this a hot button issue for me?  Well, yes it is.  And that is why I am following this show with great interest even if I'm not watching it right now.

@thistle Thanks for sharing with us your story. Sending you some :heart:.

———

I can understand why LSY feels the way he does & wants to hide it from the rest of the world . It became clear to me towards the end of eps 10 at the staff pantry when things started sticking to him . The look that IW and YR gave him was one of shock & surprise. But for  SY, he feels that his disability & the malfunctioning of his support equipment makes him look like a freak. I know it’s easy to say he should ignore it , but if we were to put ourselves in his shoes , we  will understand that the normalcy that abled body people have is something that they always take for granted . For SY , being normal is his ultimate wish- go to work like a normal person, date like a normal person , move like a normal person . But to him being normal seems like an impossibility , needing much effort - it is hard work & often brings pain and grief . I really feel for him .

 

@lclarakl Hello dear. Sorry for the late reply . Watching one too many dramas but finally catching up on this week’s. I know YR is not the easiest female lead to warm up to. Took me a while . But I hv seen her grow over the episodes- not sudden forced growth, but very organically & realistically . Especially in the latest episodes, you can understand why she’s always had so many insecurities but you also see her become stronger & less apologetic to people who take advantage of her . She’s very fortunate to have a great mentor in Manager Yang . Hope you’ll join us here .
