  1. 1. Have you watched season 1?

  2. 2. Do you think season 2 would be even more lit if it were made into makjang?

    • Absolutely. Let Sleepy Owl and partyon send in their makjang suggestions to the writers.
    • Maybe. A little kimchi slap and birth secret here and there couldn't hurt.
    • No. And no again. I'm with Ms. Koko, larus and Abs_triggered.
  3. 3. Which makjang elements would you enjoy seeing in season 2? (choose as many as you like)

    • Truck of doom hits Andrea and he suffers from memory loss. He forgets his love and becomes a priest. In the end, he recovers his memory and leaves the priesthood and searches for his love Dr Jang
    • But Dr. Jang is angry at Andrea for leaving her and gets revenge by marrying Kim Jun Wan (cardiothoraic surgeon) after he was dumped by his soldier girlfiend (Ik Jun's sister)
    • It's revealed that Ik Jun (general surgeon) is actually the brother of Dr.Jang making it all super awkward, because his friend Kim Jun Wan has dated one of his sisters (soldier) and married his other sister (Dr Jang).
    • Distressed by his brother Andrea's memory loss and depression for losing his love Dr Jang, Andrea's oldest brother (played by Sung Dong Il) decides to join the mafia to get revenge on Dr. Jang and the truck driver
    • Neurosurgeon Song Hwa and OB gyn Yang Seok Hyeong go camping but get lost in the mountains. Seok Hyeong and Song Hwa connect on a romantic level when he saves her from a bear attack.
    • OB gyn Yang Seok Hyeong's betrayed girlfriend Chu Min Ha goes on a rampage in the hospital, seaweed slapping everyone who comes at her way!
    • Priest Oppa Andrea's mom meets up with Dr. Jang, "Divorce your current husband Jun Wan, get back with my son or you both have to leave the hospital' (incoming water splash)
    • Meanwhile, Ik Jun is visited by his ex-gf(played by Go Ara) in the hospital. She wants him back, but he's like nah... "I'm tired of all women! They have all betrayed me! I'm gonna stay single"
    • The seaweed slapping Chu Min Ha (betrayed gf) has now reached a sad Ik Jun, but the camera slows down as she aims a seaweed slap at him. We hear romantic music! She slips but he holds her back preventing her from falling. Their eyes lock and BOOM!
    • New scene: Andrea is crying loudly in a bar in Italy, unable to forget Dr. Jang. An Italian girl comforts him and soon they become more than friends.... Turns out she belongs to the mafia though! The Cassano family. Her brother's name is Vincenzo..
    • But Andrea is still sad, so his oldest brother(Sung Dong Il) and his new Italian girlfriend decide to get revenge on Dr. Jang so that Andrea can finally move on. Cue on dramatic music.
    • As they arrive at the hospital, ready to kill everyone in their way, they meet the truck driver. Bam! He's a goner!
    • Cue in on Dr Jang who has just found out that her husband Kim Jun Wan is cheating on her with her and Ik Jun's sister (Jun Wan's soldier ex girlfriend).( Incoming water splash and kimchi slap 2.0)
    • Andrea's brother and girlfriend aim a gun at Dr Jang but her brother Ik Jun saves her. Andrea's gf shoots cheating Kim Jun Wan instead and sadly he doesn't make it. Dramatic music. Police arrive and arrest Sung Dong Il and the Italian lady
    • Ik Jun's seaweed slapping gf Chu Min Ha goes to the police station angry at Ik Jun for getting into danger like that. She seaweed slaps him! Boom!
    • Andrea hears of all of this and is shocked his brother and gf could do such a heinous act. But cue in on ANOTHER truck of doom that hits him as he is on his way to the police station. Dr. Jang spots a lifeless and bleeding Andrea, operates on him and saves him.
    • Dr. Jang is distressed after having lost her cheating husband Jun Wan and after having saved her ex-love Andrea, so she quits the hospital and becomes the manager of a chocopie factory.
    • Andrea has forgotten everything post truck of doom 1.0, and thinks he is still dating Dr. Jang and starts searching for her again.
    • (Time leap to 1 year later.) Dr Jang and Andrea meet by chance in the chocopie factory after Andrea's bus breaks down in front of it. Cue in on romantic music when they look at each other lovingly and kiss... Happy ending!
    • Ms. Koko: "partyon and Sleepy Owl - you're in big trouble!" (partyon and Sleepy Owl run away....)

watching random stuff on YT and find a netflix trailer that actually looks interesting to me. wonder if it will be released in my region. if nothing else, can be virtual tourist through the movie and check out azerbaijan. hahahahha...

 

 

What amazes me a lot is that "Tragic love" genre has been there for centuries and still it can attract people to it, if it is well written. We've had the likes of "Layla Majnun" which originated from Arabia around 8-9th century I guess, or maybe +-1, "Shirin and Farhad" (also known as Khusrow and Shirin" from Persia a couple of centuries later, and then we've got Romeo and Juliet which I think came in later 16th century (If I am not wrong). 

 

These are the only ones I know, but I am sure, there are many more works like this in other languages and countries. But as I said, this has been a thing for more than almost 1000 years now and I believe it will continue being a thing in future too :rubchin:

Well, firstly I am from India. 

 

As for Goa, it is in my list, but I am not really that excited to go there, compared to Kerala or Eastern States of India. Wouldn't mind going to Goa though, but as I said, if I have the option, I will choose Kerala over it, since it has got more things to offer.

I've been in Kerala and Karnataka some years ago. Too much food! :lol:

historically, in most literature, people who fall in love all die and have tragic endings. that was more common than happy endings. so yea, for long time, love was a kind of luxury. from a literary view, I feel like most rom-coms these days are really boring because they have no bite to them. there is no real emotion or conflict or dpeth and so it feels flat and mostly flakey. something that would be quickly forgotten after a season. if I have to think of a romance movie/drama I really liked, I feel like I have to think back quite a while ago. :sweatingbullets:

You are actually right here, Chingu. Thing is, writing a tragic love story requires more work than writing a rom-com, even if it is an average Tragic Love Story, mainly because the main point is for the viewers to feel the emotions portrayed.

 

Now of course doing it through screens is much easier now, and main reason for the likes of Romeo and Juliet, Layla Majnun being so famous is that they did the same through the words in a book. Yes, Romeo and Juliet was more of a play and was supposed to be played on stage, but Layla Majnun was a story passed on and the author of Shirin Farhad wrote it in a form of poem. So it takes a lot to make people feel that way just through words and books than the screen. So the reason we still hear their names and see series/movies been made on their basic plot shows how brilliant those works were. 

 

But on the other than, I for one, very rarely go for tragic love. Not that I don't like it, I have watched a lot of movies based on this genre, but then again, I don't always go for it. I usually watch rom-coms for the comic relief, and this is the reason I watch less rom-coms in a year than other genre.

well said chingu. tragedy written well can really tug at your hearts. you get pulled in to feeling so much of the unfairness that you want to cry even though you know it is just a story. when it is below average, you just roll your eyes and fast forward. hahahah... from a literature historical view, ancient greek plays really went for a lot of tragedies. the reason was the culture was very stoic. people didn't believe in expressing their emotions and so watching a tragedy play out on stage was a relief and gave catharsis. it allowed the audience to release all that pent up sadness in their heart and to walk back home a little lighter -- that was the original intent of entertainment. people make fun of makjang kdramas but you should read the ancient literature -- it is filled with affairs, all sorts of tragedies that could be stopped if people just talked to each other and all sorts of madness. those were the origins of all our modern makjang soaps. in a way, it is interesting that the nature of humans haven't changed. we are just as stupid as we were hundreds of years ago. it is why all these tragic love stories still vibe with us even now.

@Sleepy Owl I honestly could not even to try and finished it. I have lot of respect that you tried to watch it to the end.  Some dramas are just not worth the time.

Yep well said. This is the reason I mostly go for animes with tragic back stories. I don't prefer to watch any kind of romance in dramas, series or movies but if it is minimal and subtle I can work with it. Most of the times if I am watching something and it has heavy romance, I usually skip those parts. But again it is different with animes. I don't know why I prefer that genre in animes but not for series and movies.

when I watched anime, I found the romance better structure and almost more poignant. one of my favourite anime was escaflowne and I found it really romantic. it had a bittersweet kind of ending. you don't see so many plot holes in anime for some reason whereas in movies and dramas, you start eye rolling at the inconsistencies.  in anime, those plot holes just add to the charm for some reason. :sweatingbullets: you don't question if there is chemistry or if there is a real connection between the OTP in animation, you just buy it even if it is a simple disney cartoon. hahahah....

True. I havent seen that anime. I will add it to my list. One of the reasons why I could not watch many animes or dramas nowadays is because I rewatch a lot. Like this is my 3rd time rewatching Naruto (minus fillers). In Romance anime I loved "Your Lie in April" and in tragic genre "I want to eat your pancreas". Feel free to recommend me some good animes, this year I am on my anime binge with 3-4 kdramas.

@Lmangla you are right about it, I read about the greek plays long ago. The tragic dramas or let's say stories, could actually be more relatable, not actually with the tragic love, but with the whole theme, as they would try to for more realistic scenarios and also include the more alarming issues of the society. As for rom-com, as I said I like them, but these days, a lot of rom-coms are more like a fairy tale, which lack the realistic touch. You might enjoy it, but cannot relate to it. 

 

My parents prefer comedy, mainly because they say "life is already chaotic, so we want to watch something happy" and that is actually the beauty that lies in Comedies. I lookout for good romantic comedies, but not many impress me. Some of them especially in dramas, are overloaded with romance, so much that literally nothing happens plot wise, or they just try to force the humor, which makes things worse.

As for anime, since they are animated, it opens a lot of possibilities for them to include it as a sub-genre too. Not something which you can see easily happen in live action movies or dramas, and I actually love the overall story telling of Japanese Mangas, Anime and also a couple of movies I have seen. And not only you feel the emotions in the anime, you can actually feel it while reading Manga. 

 

Thing is I don't really mind the genre, but the realism and how interesting the plot is what matters for me. How realistic the plot can be, how they portray the emotions and how well the plot develops. Of course, here sci-fi can be an exception, since no matter how good of a theory you present, it still does not stay that realistic.

I either drop the dramas before the half way mark, or don't. Sometimes there are some WTH moments that happened in dramas in the later episodes, which if had happened earlier, I would have dropped the drama. For me, that drama had quite an interesting story, but somehow, I could not really like it, I guess. There was something happening which I didn't really around those episodes. So dropped it.

it has been so many years that I don't remember actually many of the names I enjoyed. I was thinking of this one series that had humans and fairies fighting wars in a kind of hobbit-type story but can't place the name. there was some comedies like inyuasha, raman and one about a female witch. what was the name? lina? I like movies like nauiscaa which is a miyazaki classic but many have not seen. total pity. most of the animes that I used to watch are considered classic now.....

 

I was trying to find a good trailer of escaflowne but just giving you the opening song which gives you feel. don't watch the movie -- that was just dumb in my opinion. the series is what makes it a classic.
