"But with Taek, what the audience expects, the audience shall not get. His arc lacks the transparency of JH's 'coming of age' story. On the level of metafiction, what is happening instead is this: the writer, the narrative, the viewers, and JH are playing a game of baduk against Choi Taek 9 dan. And he is winning."

This paragraph  is so gorgeous I want to stand up and appaluse.

Can I hug you, Meliere

If I end up being wrong about this drama I'm afraid I am in need of new glasses . It's seems everyone from dramabeans to that other writer thinking junghwan is end game. Sigh. The most confusing drama ever lol 

I will also like to remind you guys that we never got an answer over whether or not duk seon knew she was in the same bed as junghwan. It was made to be seem as a dream a la kiss

Present Day Clues = Null

  Reveal hidden contents

 

I sail in this ship primarily because the husband-hunting game brings me here. I came to this drama expecting a good "detective" story that doesn't involve murder. A solid deduction of "The Husband" can be established half way through if one sets aside one's bias and is willing to face the "facts" though I agree with the argument that "facts" are not truths. Well, studying Taek as a character is fascinating but a game is a game. Luckily, I can have both.

But when the "present day" is dismissed as misdirection, clues and hints as "trolls", so that it supports certain direction of shipping, that is just sad considering how much care the writer has put in the denouement: a multi-threading complex narrative of how DS and Taek get together. I walked through this drama with a thrilling "surprise me!" vibe.

The insistence to fit  "external" conventions of leads  and what-not brings to mind the joke of Golden Globe award for "The Martian" for best picture in comedy and musical. Like "The Martian"? Comedy? Musical? Really? MWAHAHAHAHAHA...

Hi chingudeul, hwaiting for live streaming later on :D

After reading all your post in this lovely thread, suddenly a thought crossed my mind. I think, the writer built the character of JH such a 'strong' (or 'good' (?) Idk how to say it, sorry) so that IF in the end JH doesn't get the girl, the viewers wouldn't feel the same as CB in R94, and his character is still loved by everyone. I myself felt sad when seeing his 'joking' confession to DS.

Well, our ship is about to reach the destination. Be prepared, and let's celebrate together when we arrive later! See you all during live streaming! :blush:
