[Drama 2018] The Beauty Inside Drama Remake, 뷰티 인사이드

Recommended Posts

@Irly I get what you meant here and can feel why you feel like that. I am a mother a daughter and a wife as well and I’m sure we try our best to not give up on things and on the people we love despite numerous hardships in life. 

 

In situations like this, I believe there is nothing called a perfect solution. For us as audience there are no right or wrong feelings as they are all subjective. I just think if Segye stays, both she and Dojae cannot pretend nothing happened. Unintentionally because of Segye, Dojae couldn’t see his dad for the last time, has the illness and lived miserably before meeting Segye. Those are facts. Continuing being together now is hard for Dojae and hell for Segye, so for the time being I believe at least a short time apart is good for both of them even though just to feel and reflect. If Segye is not happy, how can she make Dojae happy? By thinking like that, I do not feel upset or think that Segye is selfish. But yes I cried buckets of tears and naturally felt very sad.

 

We have 2 more episodes and I’m sure avid kdramas lovers know at some point they’ll meet again. When, how and in what situation, we don’t know. Let the writer convince us then I guess.

 

just my 2 cents :)

Also wish for more rom com less melo but the acting is so good can't get enough! Hoping for a happy ending. No cruel fate please for the lovers. And speaking just for me, still hoping for a cure for both of them that frees them from all the extra suffering.  Life is tough enough. Wouldn't cheapen the drama for me to get a super sweet happily ever after for this little world. I have health issues, too. I'm happy with my life. But if a future miracle cure came my way, who knows.  Every procedure has its risks. Can see that DJ who has felt his face blindness so deeply and painfully might want to gamble his life. That's believable to me. 

 

But after all, this isn't exactly a slice of life drama. DJ's face blindness has worked as a writer's gimmick in a way to allow her to explore tough stuff like love, gender, aging,  self-worth, endurance, courage, suffering, discrimination. And SG's morphing suddenly into any age or gender human on the planet is not exactly a realistic story line fortunately! SHJ' s acting is so terrific she's made SG come alive despite that fabulous story line. I guess it's a mercy SG's transformation is always the same species! Though a playful pal for SG's furry scene stealer might be fun. Or perhaps a cat?

I have to reply that i second you on your thoughts.

I believe most of you are seasoned kdrama viewers and you should know that this is typical kdrama plot, breakup reconcile and then happy ending for rom coms. I'm only keen to know when, how and if it's convincing likewise summer18 said. It‘s very easy for us to say who/ what is right and wrong when we ourselves also have our own flaws. We're not God and there is no judgement day for a drama character, no need to call for support or hatred in that sense. No need to feel so upset over your oppa crying. You should be glad that he's able to showcase his crying skill and earn praises/appreciation for his acting skills.

Ok everyone, be happy and enjoy the last 2 episodes next week.

Wow :o this thread has certainly picked up speed in the last Episode 14 and I was quite worried after reading all the strong emotions that were racked up about the story and the actions of our main leads that I was really hesitant about watching it. 

 

Finally picked up the courage to watch the subbed version for greater clarity and surprisingly my reaction was much more subdued... wonder if it was the predisposition I already held going in to watch the episode or just the writing.  Somehow the entire episode felt much slower in pace compared to the previous. Episode 13 had so much going on so much so that by comparison, episode 14 could be considered a stroll in the park.  I was like watching two people’s emotions unravel in s-l-o-w motion.  Not that I found it boring nor getting impatient but I was just like a third party viewing a very private exchange between two people - watching from afar how they would act, how they would talk and how they would come to terms with the complex jumble of emotions.  Frankly speaking, now that I’ve watched the entire episode, the raw emotions displayed by LMK while impressive at first... just couldn’t match the superior grasp by SHJ of the deeper emotions rising up in HSG. I can only say I was left in awe by the show of a true master of emotional control and expressions by SHJ. Kudos. I have much more respect for her as an actress now than even before.

 

Now to the story development itself - Firstly I had trouble connecting to the actions of SDJ at the opening of the episode after he found out that HSG was the person he saved and rushed over to her house, only to let her cry on her own when he seemed to understand her pain but didn’t seem strong enough to comfort her when she needed it the most.  I know at the end they sort of ‘explained’ in a roundabout manner that he was afraid of what she would say then and there ... which was “let’s break up” and he was not prepared to face it.  Which leads me to wonder whether he was also not able to say confidently himself that they would be happy together ? My conclusion is that he wasn’t sure. And that’s why although it would seem odd to me at first why he almost ran away from her after she asked him to... in a way, that was his weakness. Because if he was clear, he would have said then that it was not her fault and not wait till many days later when she was still clearly in pain.  It was just like his grandpa said.... he could be foolish at times (almost felt like that was the writer-nim saying that to SDJ). Second part which I couldn’t quite ‘get’ was the breakdown of SDJ at the end - I wasn’t quite sure he was unhappy with the thought that he possibly would never see her again or was he more upset that he was not able to remember her face ... (although he could always look at her picture again just like the “First 50 Kisses” where the heroine wakes up every day not remembering anyone).

 

Strangely, the episode left me feeling emotionally “empty”, a bit of dazed effect with no great anticipation nor rush to see the next episode.  It was almost like I felt just like HSG - I need space and a break to let the feelings and thoughts sort itself out :unsure: It’s like the weight of the words said have a lingering effect.... casting a spell, telling me that I cannot be truly happy after this but I cannot cry for them. Do I consider that as a very successful effect that the PD and writer and actors wanted to create ? Somehow I feel that the writer is still leaving some big message to the end which I am not able to guess.

 

That said, I am interested to see how the story will pan out, and I do agree with the comment that the mood right now certainly doesn’t gel with a RomCom and probably veering into Melo.  It’s the final two episodes... let’s stick together for the final stretch !

Mind you, k-dramas have come a long way, from cancer (Doctors Brothers, Autumn in my heart, many), memory loss (Winter Sonata, Boys over flowers, many), wicked mum of rich boyfriend (The heirs, many), time skip (too many)... (I like some of these dramas and don’t like the others). In recent years, we have seen many logical happy or open endings. The plot so far has many twists with most resolved, so I’m eager to see the final push the production will give to the ending. In fact, I found the storyline 'till now interesting with many witty conversations and life messages. It is a fantasy romcom so there are things that don’t make sense, but I watch dramas partly to be in another creative world, so that’s fine with me.

 

A few pages back someone mentioned a drama site. I think I read that same drama site and was astonished to find some comments that made me wonder “what would they say that?”. This drama site used to be one of my favourites a long time ago and recently I find their views quite biased. I doubt if the writers even watch the drama(s) at all or just some clips. To express their opinions is one thing, but to be a KOI (key online influencer - websites, IG, Twitter... with reader/fan base of thousands or millions) I would hope their views to be more impartial as there are 2 sides for everything. 

 

For example, to call TBI production a fan service or say it doesn’t have deep meanings is too ridiculous. There are stories to learn in each episode. I kept saying to myself "This drama is so good" when watching the first few episodes as I found them refreshing and fast; I laughed my richard simmons off when Eunho wanted to jump out of the window/door when first seeing Segye change; and I cried so much when watching Segye's mom passing away in episode 10 or hearing Segye saying to Dojae "This is the last thing I say as Han Segye. I love you very much" in episode 14. 

 

@kopifan omg I had very some similar emotions/reactions like you when watching ep 14 with sub. I felt empty when finishing it. I felt I needed a break and some space for myself, just like Segye.

Hello, Soompi colleagues:blush:

Well this my first post here, just consider me as “déjà vue ici  “.

I don’t how to start , from the last ep or my feeling about the drama ?

Before that I just want say don’t mind my all writing , I forgot all English grammars  and conjunction  so I hope I can deliver  my thought.

 First , I love to say that the symbols  choosing by the writer , the beauty inside , someone who change to another person figure  , and also someone who can’t see faces , I thinks this was change from the movie , and I like this add

The beauty inside can take a lot of meaning, the inner , the real self …

How the writer used this three symbols amazing me , for me how actress change to others new figure every month , is like as we are actors and actress in this word we play roles , depending in situation, but we have different style of acting , some of as  are obligate  to act to handle their life’s, work family etc… but they still kip their real self, the beauty inside .

Other they forget their true inner, they couldn’t leave the new role .

As we play life roles , we can lost connection with our entourage , some of them couldn’t figure as , because we are different person for them , others even with the changes still figure our beauty inside , they understand as,

Yes, it’s about relationships, understanding, real self , how people became blind , because misunderstanding , selfish, busy life … so the world is losing their beauty inside .

That my general completed thought.

This drama special meaning for me, last years I discover that have problem in my eyes,

So I need donor for one of my eyes I don’t know what will happen to other one , they  told me there is no  medication   for my case ,   only Surgery I can be the solution ,  is completed .

it wasn’t easy for me as healthy person full of energy , I became depressed  for time ,ok ; what relation between me and the drama , you know when he couldn’t notice his mother face , that happened to me , mother was in the salon , I want to see her one eyes the one witch I have problem

I couldn’t see her face , I cried in inside I didn’t want cry that moment , sometimes when go about I forget my sunglasses because I wasn’t used yet , friends and family met me out and told me , why you didn’t say hi to as , do you ignore  as?.

I think for someone who can’t figure people it’s painful:(

Well, this drama is very  good , some people , just comments about small details about montages r something like that , this is not cliché drama , the writer avoid all thing like love triangle , rich family objection   ,  the evil mother in laws ….

Because the writher want the idea of the beauty inside can touch audience.

I think who’s watched the drama without any prejudice like , I watched the movie , the remake changed everything , or blabla balbi …

I can tell for now, I can rewatch this dram again and again.

Not because I’m seo hyun jin hard fan ,  I didn’t like story , even I did understand  the writer of that drama but she couldn’t found good scenario ,  I didn’t finished just hyunjin parts what I watched .

 

 I STOP HERE ,  should go to sleep now :wub:

@samaf take care and hope you stay positive !  

 

On a happier note, it’s fast coming to the weekend which means closer to the final two episodes!    

 

Now that I have had more time to reflect on episode 14,  there are silver linings despite the overall downcast mood of HSG’s self-torture.  First of all, HSG is blessed with a superb manager and world’s greatest friend, Woomi.  While Woomi could have tried to console her (well she did try), she kinda of knew immediately that she needed to give her friend space and lots of it.  She got her back immediately and worked with great efficiency to announce her retirement, cleared out her house all in a matter of a day or two ?!  (Well, it is quite a big house ya’know) and even blocked SDJ from seeing her. Secondly, it’s such a comfort to see where SDJ got his good heart from too - his mom and gramps are actually big softies who will rally behind to give their family members the morale support they need. Overall, the other main theme now coming to me is that of showing care to the ones you love - take even EunHo’s declaration of “now I know who I was meant to save” which may have come across as really pompous to some but somehow just felt so comforting instead to me.

 

I am on the camp of “i understand why HSG chose to leave” and I don’t blame her for saying “I love you very much” as the last thing she would say to SDJ as HSG.  It was because I could feel just how deeply she loved SDJ and when she said 2 episodes back that she promised to make him happier than that day at the resort for the rest of his life.  I believe she sincerely wanted to make him happier.  And because she loved him so, the burden of her guilt at that point made her realise that she might always feel sorry towards him and when your love is replaced by guilt, it will turn to melancholy, and your melancholy will in turn start to burden the other party and from there slowly tear them apart.  That’s why I guess her only conclusion at that point was to leave. To leave so that they would not slowly start to resent each other.  To leave with him knowing that she loved him.  To leave so that he could start to forget her and have the hope of getting back on his feet. I do actually connect with HSG’s thoughts at this juncture... as in to chose to start a different life... I’d think it’ll be for the better of the whole to be separated.

 

One thing is for sure to me is she’ll always love him.  Perhaps time will help to heal her guilt. And perhaps she’d always think of him. She might even secretly watch over him. My guess is she really might.

Sometimes we face challenges that will close doors in our lives.  It is painful, disheartening, and frustrating.  But those challenges can also open windows in our hearts.  I think that is what has happened for you because it seems that your soul can see the pain of others more clearly and it has given you an understanding spirit.  I hope that the doctors will be able to help you more.

Hi @samaf hope you find strength and cheer up, I might not be able to know how it really feels like, but I understand your feeling and wishing for the best for you.

 

@kopifan I love your POV.

 

I want to watch the next episode as soon as possible and have the happy ending we all deserve, but I don't want the next week to come too because that will be the end... I dunno which one I should really feel right now..boring-crazy-rabbit-emoticon.gif

Maybe the preview out tomorrow just like last week?

Spoiler

I saw few spoiler of them shooting outside, but haven't really saw a picture of Dojae n Segye together, there's a witness saying both shooting yesterday but no picture. Today there's one spot Eunho shoot outside and car scene. and There's a spoiler about all pictures from Segye's house (all segye's face) hang on Dojae house wall too

 

But then again, I haven't really re-watch episode 14 with subs. Every other episode I at least watch for 3 times, but I still can't handle to watch episode 14 again.

The making today is fun, but I'm still craving for more Segi couple behind the scene. Will JTBC give us more consider next week will be the last episode? Or maybe they save it for Bluray/DVD directory cut.

Me too. I usually watch again the new episodes every weekend. I might skip this one this weekend and wait for the final 2 episodes. 

JTBC might save the juicy ones for the director's cut. But hopefully they will give us more. Usually they are giving what the audience wants as  per previous drama they have 

 

Thanks for those spoilers! I'm thinking, the crew might be a stricter these days on capturing their shoots specially for SG and DJ scenes. And their shoots will end this weekend for sure! And they might have their thanksgiving on monday right? This will be a very hectic weekend for them! I hope they will stay healthy until the end!!
