[Drama 2018] Devilish Joy, 마성의 기쁨

My thought is that though they are both obviously doing pretty well financially now...still isn't it expensive to get married every week???  I am guessing MS is not working anymore. But, eventually that is going to get old, I am not sure that they can keep getting married like that for the rest of their lives. Part of me feels like MS is requesting getting married so many times because he is so happy to be with GB. 

 

Well, weddings are expensive, but in this case, I think it depends on the scale of the wedding. I think the weddings may be being held in the hall at the Healing Village, so at least that expense isn't there. Then, if GB wears the same dress and MS his tuxedo, then the cost of the wedding clothing isn't there.  The expense would probably be similar to having a nice party with fresh flowers rather than putting on a total wedding production, so well within both GB and MS' means, I would think.

 

And, I think that they will eventually stop having the wedding ceremonies. It seems that MS is just so happy to be married to GB, that he wants to repeat the experience over and over again to try to impress the memories into his brain, however, they probably want to do other things as well. And, of course, when they have children, they will probably slow down the wedding ceremonies themselves. :)

But MS recovery is miraculous, the fact that in a single year he went from not remembering himself to back to his condition a after the accident is amazing progress. Which shows that he could possibly even improve upon that in the next year and the year after that. 

 

Yes, and I think that speaks to the hopeful voiceover ending where even though they are living happily now, they hope that someday they can just be a normal couple living a plain, ordinary life.

I had been getting a feeling since last 6-7 episodes that there were two writers writing this drama. The original writer wrote it as a tragic romance and maybe the channel or the production house decided to change it to a romance with HEA....after it started getting good reaction from the viewers.

 

This humor/tragedy dichotomy seems to be a thing in kdramas lately. I seem to be seeing more and more dramas where the comedy is as prominent as the melodrama aspect. I suppose I'm used to having one or the other element playing a secondary role to soften the central tenet rather than having it whiplash between the two states of being given equal time and treatment.

Actually, that kind of makes sense. There is a sense that MS has been gone so long, that KJ and GB are settling into their new lives without MS, even though they both miss him and long for him. When GB goes to Hainan back to the cafe where they had gotten together, and she talks to her memory of him, that was a goodbye as well. And,t hen when she decides to start putting some of MS' stuff away, that is GB moving on with her life slowly.

 

Then it's revealed that MS has been at Healing Village for the past year after having failed to find treatments in Baltimore and wandering around waiting to day before being rescued by Dr. Yoon. And, somehow Dr. Yoon is able to facilitate MS' healing even though he wasn't able to do so before nor were the doctors in Baltimore able to help MS. Though, I guess that previously, Dr. Yoon had a vested interest in MS not getting better so couldn't effect a miracle any sooner. Still not entirely sure why Dr. Yoon had such a change of heart where he became vested in Healing Village and in helping MS get better. But, this did feel like an ending after the ending. 

 

Still, I did say that for the sake of a happy ending, I (and others) would be willing to put up with any amounts of ridiculousness, and it seems that the production team were listening because we did get a rather nonsensical albeit happy ending. Not that I'm complaining or anything. I would rather have MS alive and kissing GB passionately enough to make KJ want to vomit than have MS dead and have all of us collectively swearing to kill the writer for giving us such an unhappy ending. :D

 

Actually, the only reason that the second half did not feel entirely tacked on is that it would have been too cruel and asinine of MS to deliberately leave everyone in the dark and slink off to die alone in a foreign country. That just seems so out of character for how much MS had loved everyone for him to deny GB a chance to say a final goodbye to him. Though, I guess noble idiocy knows no bounds nor character restrictions in kdramaland. Anyway, time for me to shush about it, and just go watch the kissing clips again and wonder all sorts of naughty things about how much CJH and SHY may have thrown themselves into their roles for this drama. :D

Thank god OTP have such oozing chemistry to carry on the drama.  So much that we couldn’t tell whether they were acting real or for the parts on the screen.  haha It seems this feeling about them is unanimous among the viewers.    Someone here mentioned about possible Dispatch with CJH & SHY   haha  Yup I’m going to look out for Dispatch photo of these two. haha  Btw thank you for the translation especially for the last episode.   When the lines are written in texts,  without having distraction from the image,  they are more enjoyable and more appreciated.   thanks always :)

The original writer wrote it as a tragic romance and maybe the channel or the production house decided to change it to a romance with HEA....after it started getting good reaction from the viewers. I seem to remember CJH joined late for the shooting of ED coz he still had some scenes left to shoot for the finale. When before we were told it was completely preproduced.

And yes the Hainan bit in the last epi did feel like GB saying her goodbyes.There is also hint of a melancholy in some scenes.....dad's poetry and MS's goodbyes in epi 15....was kind of foreshadowing the sad ending. And we see MS writing his journals every day...seems to me he was supposed to have left this for GB to know what he felt and how he lived after he was gone.....sort of like a message that he's still with her....then after she finished reading them she could move on.....something similar like in the movie...P.s I love you.

 

No doubt the battle between the writer and the producer is a never ending struggle as the main task of a producer’s job is getting a good rating which brings in a lot more cfs.    You are right. Maybe the writer wanted a tragic but beautiful romance but the producer said nopenope and tried to satisfy the viewers with HEA.   Voila!  at the end PDnim banged their heads together and made them compromise??  haha  :sweatingbullets::lol:

Still I have to watch the last episode again with raw& subs. It seems there are many good lines, funny/cute/charming.  It’s very touching to read MS dreaming about an “ordinary tomorrow” (meaning him to recover and to live with GB like any other couple)  Oh well I better just concentrate on their happy wedding kiss and the end.  After all it’s just a drama.-_-

 

one more time

Whew, avoided any spoilers and finally finished the last two episodes. Honestly, I was filled with dread before watching the finale. I used to always look forward to this drama and picked it first before any others. Well, I was worried that there would be no happy ending, but I also didn't think the writer would torture us with a tragic ending after all that draggy angst. Like they couldn't make Ma Sung any more pitiful, right? Anyway, the wedding scenes were cute and gave me some relief. And the cast singing Gi Bbeum's song was a funny touch. 

 

I don't regret watching this drama, but it could have been so much better. Choi Jin Hyuk is already gearing up for another one. I hope Song Ha Yoon gets more roles soon too. ^^ ❤️

Hi, this is my 1st post here. When in Episode 8 MS remembered GB and he kissed her in that healing village,  does anyone knows where can I get that background score? It was so beautiful. I couldn't find it anywhere.

I  read  DJ producer( or the production team) said they would not publish any background music except OSTs.  Someone mentioned some of the music was produced in-house.  Unless some bloggers in Korea look around for the music,  the only way to hear it is in the drama.   :(

Brief summary of the article about ‘DJ’

VGqIdbA.jpg

 

Spoiler

Mo3pyL4.jpg

 


‘DJ’ which came to end on 10/25, scored a meaningful result despite of its 11pm broadcast ((*very late for many viewers to be able to watch)) and the channels which aired DJ aren’t very active in the drama area.

In Nielsen Korea, the last view rating is about 2.6%,  combined with 2.241% for MBN and 0.4% for Dramax. ((*difficult to get correct ratings for DJ because two channels aired simultaneously))   It’s a fairly good report card, considering these channels are not very familiar to the public.

The figures in the portal site Naver TV which provides the highlight videos of ‘DJ’,  indicates DJ's attraction.  With more than 14 million cumulative views, MBN has set the highest record in its history and has more than 30,000 subscribers.

As a result of conducting a survey on the number of views of the dramas that had started broadcasting in the period similar to ‘DJ’ or ended recently in Aichi Taiwan,   ‘DJ’  became #1.   

The cumulative number of views:
(DJ)  7.01 million (as on 10/29)  
(My Name is Gangnam Beauty)  5.94 million
(Familiar Wife)  3.9 million
(Your Honor)  2.06 million

(100 Days My Prince)  3.85 million ( with 2 more eps, later total  4 million)
(Today’s Detective)  1.74 million
(The Guest)   2.75 million
(Beauty Inside)   2.37 million ( later total 4 million)

SHY appeared with Lee Seo-jin in a movie, Intimate Strangers.  She did it while waiting for DJ. I don’t know how big of a part she has.  The movie premiered 10/4 and will be released 10/31.

@supergal99

Me too I haven’t got tired of the wedding and ending clips.  In the news article one of the questions is about the prolific kiss scenes ( total 21 which I read somewhere). CJH is named as the kiss master-artisan.  haha  It’s all thanks to 11pm broadcast which allowed PD to roll out endless kiss scenes. Yeah there were many k-viewers  who responded with awe and shock. ahaha
 PS I saw  CJH’s next drama (the last empress) - teaser1  but sadly this drama might not be to your liking.  It has the mixture of romance & thriller & plenty makjang( the writer is called the queen of makjang  haha)    Still please give it a peak later

PS I like how you spend  your working time. It should be good for your longevity.  Being a slave to one’s job/work is not only bad for health but also job productivity.  One needs an emotional shot of fresh air frequently.  Let’s embrace life with a dose of kdrama :P


((part translation))
Q. You are called 'The Kissing Artisan'  Tell us about the back story or your impression about a kiss scene:

(CJH) Every time I received a script, there was a kiss scene in each episode.  I and the staff were surprised and at the same time amused by it.  More interestingly, after the broadcast, viewers had a similar reaction. Although I felt awkward about the term, the kissing artisan, it’s a pleasure to hear that it wasn’t merely a skinship but  a praise for acting in such a way as to empathize with the emotion.

so there won't be an official soundtrack for bgm? that sucks :( I really liked some of the music...

wonder why they didn't just record their wedding in the first place. I think Ma Sung would've looked better in a white suit for the wedding :wub: The ending was hilarious! I'm still iffy about Dr Yoon, why the change of heart? He should've been in jail with the aunt. Also I would've voted for Ha Im in the black dress, that dark look suits her better lol why was Ki Joon scared of fur?

Actually I’m thinking whether CJH is missing his love line partner SHY or DJ drama or maybe both?  hahaa   I can sympathize with his feeling because DJ is all about OTP, and CJH & SHY spent a lot of hours together on set (maybe off set too??) ( over 5 months).  Maybe it’s a good thing that he has another project so he has no choice but blocking out whatever is swimming around in his head and/or his heart.:)

CJH is the lead in his new drama and will have a love line with JNR. The other male lead SSR is going to be a villain.  You wonder how CJH will have a relationship with a woman who married the emperor.  I had the same thought before  till I read ((an unofficial character description from a blogger  ))    
I told you the writer is the queen of makjang.  hahha    So here is some unofficial plot line;  The emperor mother forces his son to marry  Sunny(JNR) after Sunny saves the emperor’s life. It’s  because he is having a relationship with the other woman whom the mother doesn’t like and wants to get rid of her.  It means the emperor marries Sunny without love which is a prerequisite in kdrama land.   So here comes CJH and they fall in love and together they bring down the empire and live happily ever after.  haha

 

Sorry to inform you that his new drama is in SBS during regular evening hours(10pm) so I don’t expect more than one kiss on the cheek and one proper faked kiss. haha  As I said before that it might not be your kind of drama.  Besides there are some interesting high profile dramas coming up later which might snap you up hard.   haha  :P
