Does anyone of you got Weibo? There is currently something tragic going on with one of my favorite actor Xiao Xiang and I need updates.

 

Did you mean Xiao Zhan??? The Untamed actor??? I think the brouhaha is about fanfic vs fandom...

Yes him...I made a mistake. Yeah so what I heard is that some of his fans reported a fanfic to the authority that they deemed inaproppriate. As a result the goverment shut down the whole entire website. Now all the users of that site are angry about it and rating every of his drama 1 star. He is receiving a lot of hate right now. :bawling: I also heard that the original writer of that fanfic is also receiving hate to the point where they are considering taking their own live. It´s just a messy situation and I´m scared that it´s going to end badly.

Yes, plus his studio handles the situation badly. His fame reaches a new height after The Untamed that is originally a BL webtoon. Why the fandom felt the need to report a fanfic as "inappropriate"?? Absurd!!! Those fandom has a mentality of holier than thou....

 

Tbh, his situation is not looking promising at the moment in China. Let's wait and see....Btw, AvenueX has a discussion about it a little....

@nrllee I am still trying to accept this curly / wavy hair thing that many the actors are going for ... PHJ is right -  me, the ahjumma generation, isn’t a fan :lol: ..... however  I think LJH is looking handsome . Can’t wait for it to air . I hope it does not disappoint me 

Spoiler

 


I think I am on drama overload !

I agree @triplem I don’t mind it as much on LJH. I think the fact that the whole vibe of 365 seems darker so I am warming to the wavy perm on him.  I am not sure about the new PHJ drama he is filming now...it sounds comedic too?  I just want him to be in a straight up serious drama with no Aegyo or comedy in it.  Doesn’t have to be a thriller.  Even slice of life or melo is okay.  I couldn’t finish MXM - I kept fast forwarding scenes and the FL isn’t doing anything for me. 


yes @cenching he is.

Not familiar with him, I only saw him in The Lies Within with Jo BoAh's ex that I forgot his name too....:joy: But he is cute. My brain has a difficulty in registering Korean names....:sweat_smile:

@triplem don’t know why the whole boy playing a girl in Hi Bye Mama is such an issue.  Guess it will die a natural death as the number of first posters to the thread dwindle.  I can understand the surprise (I was surprised too) but to then question why they didn’t change the character in the drama to a boy just because they cast a boy in the role seemed superfluous?  He auditioned for the part of a girl?  And he was hands down better than all the other little girls that auditioned?  It’s based purely on merit?  To change it after he had auditioned and won the part would’ve disadvantaged little boys who would’ve auditioned for the part of a boy? And frankly would be a huge slap in the face for the little boy who won because it would imply that they didn’t think he could pull it off in the end. I hope everyone just settles into the story and plot and their individual performances instead.  I haven’t started it.  I am not in the mood for a cry fest. :lol:

I am one of those who questioned why not change the character to a son instead of keeping it as daughter. @triplem explained the possibility of doing so in the main thread, that a daughter probably serves as constant reminder for the people around FL which made moving on from her death more difficult. The reason why the child actor was chosen was because he looks very much like KTH when she was a little girl, so they went for the identical looks for mother-daughter pairing when casting.

I haven't cried much watching ep.1-2 actually, only during scenes of husband grieving. I admit it's difficult for me to get into the story. I don't know why, is it KTH, or is it always seeing the little kid as a boy instead of a girl, sorry but I feel they didn't style him girly enough except for the side ponies... Yeah, I really wished I didn't know about this trivia before watching. As a matter of fact, I am more invested in the second wife (stepmother)'s backstory.

I watch Avenuex too. I have read the statement of the agency and to be honest what could they have done better. Because nothing that they would have said would have appeased the angry people. I just feel so bad for him that he is geting all the hate for something that he is not responsible for. I fear that it will have a huge damage on his career. I hope he got a good support system around him :(

@ktcjdrama I guess cynics could say it was all for the hype.  So I can understand in part why there would be those who question the decision.  But yes I can see your point of view too.  I watched Swing Kids not knowing the boy in the movie was actually a girl (she had shaved all her hair off) and it was really only much later when I watched some of the movie introductions done when KyungSoo announced to everyone that he was in actual fact a she that I found out.  A lot of people were startled too by the reveal.  I think it would’ve sat at the back of my mind constantly had I known in advance and I would pick things out which I wouldn’t have whilst watching the movie.  Keeping the girl character intact in this drama would adhere to the premise of the show.  She would be a constant reminder of her deceased mother to her dad and of course to the step mom.  But I am with you.  I feel more for the step mom than I do for KTH.  She was on her back foot even before she stepped into the step mom role.  Blended families are hard.  From the get go, there’s always competition.

They really should've kept it until at least mid-way of the drama. I think viewers will appreciate the child actor's performance so much more.


I agree.  Why not just keep it a secret till after the drama ends?  Like just reveal it during wrap up party?  There was really no need to reveal this in the beginning or even mid way.  Now everyone will just look at him weird.  That’s why I was wondering if it was just for the hype.

@cenching Lee Joon Hyuk’s role in the Lies Within was just a big cameo in support of the FL . He’s a fantastic actor often playing villains & questionable characters. I’m looking forward to him leading in this upcoming time travel - 365 One Year Against Destiny. 
 

@nrllee I love HiByeMama so far . Yet to watch eps 3 & 4  . It moves me & I hv no issues with the kid ( i hv seen girls play boys , plus a lot of girls  hv more boyish looks &  vice - versa)  . I wrote my thoughts about ppl needing to focus on the plot . And let’s put it this way , if it really is a deal breaker , there are plenty of other dramas that people can watch .

@Lawyerh How’s your oppa power coming along ? You’re still hanging onto SKJ’s family drama ? By the way are you still watching Game To Zero ?

Mine is Mango Seed Oil, I used it last night...Let's see how it goes....:sweatingbullets:

 

 
I’ve never heard of Mango seed oil so I’m not sure what the benefits are. Interesting though!!

 

@Sarang21 I like J Hope bec he’s playful and sweet. I also like Jinkookie (the youngest) because he’s talented but I’m sure my opinion might change as I get to know the members better. These 2 just caught my eye right away. 
 

@Sejabin I like it so far. Some are saying it feel slow but I actually like the pacing.

I am in danger of dropping Fine Weather Friends.  There is definitely A LOT of writing material (for comments) there to discuss books, metaphors, motifs but I think you really need to be in the right mood for this.  Or be a fan of either PMY or SKJ.  But I promised to watch till Ep 6 (or was that 4?) so I will plug away at it.

I did finish the two episodes. It’s one of those dramas where I mustn’t watch before bed time :joy:. I fell asleep both times . But when I was fresh & alert I could appreciate the calming voice of SKJ & the lovely scenery . Also like the cute Lee Jae Wook .  This drama won’t be everyone’s cup of tea . Actually I’m a melodrama queen ....so I love combinations of melo - crime , melo - fantasy , melo revenge , even melo- makjang with the right oppa :w00t:,    I’m not particularly good with sticking to slice of life . So let’s see how Long I’ll last . Edit : I think I tend to like plot driven dramas . That’s why I hope hospital playlist wont fail me

@lynne22 That looks pretty cute! I might pick it up after I finish Pillow Book and this other show I started watching. 

 

Covid-19 (aka Coronavirus) officially in my city so who knows.... I might gain some extra time here soon to watch kdramas. People freaking out too. Stores already sold out of hand sanitizer and face masks. Soap still in stock though which makes me laugh. 

 

Glad I prepped weeks ago when they first started bringing people back from the red zones. :joy:
