[Drama 2018] My ID is Gangnam Beauty, 내 ID는 강남미인

@enigmatic_zephy  Since I started reading the web toon, I understand where Kyung-Seok is coming from. He hates PS and beauty because it is a subject that reminds him of the past. He may hate PS but he never hated Mirae but he was disappointed of her. He was a person who found nothing wrong with her past self. On some way, he takes after his father in mannerisms. Even though he hated PS, he is still there to protect her. I don’t think he judges pretty people. He is the silent type of guy who observes people and loves to test them to see what type of person they are. I think his mains problem is people who cares about appearance is what he hates, not the beauty itself. 

I hope I amkeyswnse chingu. 

 

For example in the drama when Woo Jin was in  the hospital, he tested the girlfriend by putting his friend on the spot to be truthful and She turned out to be materialistic. The first thing that came out of her mouth was what about “FATHER’S INHERITANCE “, not about does he have a place to stay, is he okay, how could Abeonim do that????. 

When a girl keeps chasing him around ? Asking him personal questions about his relationship status and not getting the hint when he doesn’t respond. As you can see he is a loner and have trusting issues. He even watched Soo ah and tries to avoid her because he knows she was the one who made Senior guy to hurt Mirae because she wants all the attention for herself. If you also notice that Mirae sticks the average people but Soo ah is always dragging Mirae in a dangerous situation.

Oh good - my work is already done - I can´t really say it better. Thats why he disliked MR in the webtoon first - even so he cared for her - he disliked that she in his eyes took so many effert to look beautiful...

 

Together with that scent - he really was forced to remember...

 

  Reveal hidden contents

I love his reaction when he finds out what it must has mean to her - in the past but even today...

Hope we will get this like it was in the webtoon...

 

 

Ahhhh! That makes sense now. Thank you very much chingus.

 

I'm starting to see where DKS character starts off.

big agency Vs small agency

well established idol vs relatively new..

crazy fangirls vs crazy fangirls have grown up so somewhat more mature gangirls

I'm starting to see where DKS character starts off.

 

One part I love about the webtoon - not only Mi Rae has her own history... To understand why DKS is the way he is - it needs more information. I was honestly surprised in the webtoon. That was not predictable for me.

 

So I watched Ep. 3 with subs - and I wish I just could watch more... but reality is harsh again. I love that Mi Rae admits to KS that what he said was not wrong... and I loved it in the webtoon and in the Drama too - that she is honest and tells him that she hates herself too for giving people points for the way they look. Thats the funny fact - we have a so called natural beauty - who is all fake inside - and a so called fake beautiy - who is real and honest but very unsure inside...

 

I was happy today not just because of the main leads - I am so happy about Kwak Dong Yeon (hope I wrote it right). So nice to see him here - and I like his role too. Very interesting to see what they plan with him. And he was cool - so calm and friendly - when he maded clear that he will destroy the life of our senior pervert.  I wonder what the ugly senior is up to now - in the webtoon he left school after KS maded him a laughing stock. Honestly - he was the loser in the class right... he for sure had no chance with girls from his age. So he stayed behind and tried to play almighty now. Somehow pitiful - but he had gone way too far to even gain my pity.

 

I guess until now there is only one change I don´t like too much. I don´t really know why it was needed to make KS Father a politican. He was a successfull buisnessman - that was enough for me. Making him the next canidate for president (or goverment or whatever) is a bit too much for me.

 

One more word about KS...

he is not the angel - and he was never portrait like that... he makes mistakes too and he hurted Mi Rae... but in the end... he find out more and he is able to say he is sorry. He has his own agenda - and own sensible points... thats like that for all of us. But he is not just judging and than he left.. no he asked --- he sometimes reacts to fast and to harsh - and he can change his mind. Honestly I love this character more and more. Because he is not flawless. And in the end - only because he told Mi Rae all that (inkl. the bad stuff) only like that she had the chance to know and react - and she did in a good way. She was hurted  - but she too needed to admit first to herself than to him too - that he was right in that case. Not always - of course not. And he should not judge her - but he will learn his lessons - they both will grow.

@Mau_Cherry ... It is for dramatic effect chingu  and maybe it will be used as a threat to keep our OTP apart. Who knows????

I fear something like that - and I hope not - one more reason I don´t like that change. I know it looks like more but for me - as I said - too much. Its enough that he is from a wealthy but ruined family. But maybe some typical KDrama Elements are needed for producers to be happy... just glad that there seems to be no place for a stupid amnesia idea here. B)

I haven't watched the episode with english subs, yet. Will have to wait for tonight to watch it.

 

But thank you for the heads up. I am really looking forward to DKS's character revealing more out. When the drama started, I didn't picture DKS to be an angel, everyone just thought and label him as that, but you can tell he had some flaws and was going through some tough times that made his personality and attitude that way.

 

I'm just glad that creep senior got beat up by DKS. He's such an a** and he deserves it.

 

@Mau_Cherry Chingu, I'm sorry to put it out there, but may you spoil it if it's going to be SA who finds out that KMR did plastic surgery and reveals it? Sorry. You can just PM me. :)

Ep. 3 ratings: 3.1%

Only just realized that this drama competes with both produce 48 and i live alone on fridays, airing at the same time(i live alone starts just 10 minutes after). That considered, I'm actually really impressed at the ratings, especially since i live alone is quite popular. 

 

We're still very early in the drama but I'm liking it more and more. I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with how eunwoo is handling the cold do kyung suk character. (And am amused at some of the comments criticizing his acting while the same people praise other actors who aren't really all that great in the same breath. Not naming names, for obvious reasons) Kwak dong yeon is great as always, that's all.  I love how much more interesting and likable both male lead characters are compared to the webtoon original. There's more depth, as one would desire from a live action remake.

@spark101... Thanks for the info chingu. I too like EunWoo's performance too.  I think whoeve is critisizinv his performance should watch Suho from RIch Man. Suho couldn't pull off being cold character at all. It was off unlike EunWoo pulled it off beautifully. I am sure as the drama progresses he will get better like any actor/actress  playing a role in a drama or play. Experiece will improve any performer. :heart::heart:

 

Annyeonhaseyo @celebrianna and @whome.. Good to see you guys. WHat do you think about the drama and the topic of PS. :D

Hi chingu, ^_^ I’ve never really thought much on the topic of PS but since watching this drama I don’t think I have a problem with it. I actually sympathize with Mi Rae particularly because I get the impression that she was isolated because of her appearance. I don’t think PS was an easy decision for her to make even if the ostracism she faced forced her to become more focused on looks. I’m just hoping that now that she’s more attractive and she’s still the topic of gossip that she’ll finally begin to understand that she should value who she is as a person. If some can’t see her value, too bad but I’m sure she’ll find good friends along the way. 

 

Right now I know MR must feel anxious. After she heard those awful words that she’s a plastic monster, she probably feels like her peers might see her that way too. This is why I really enjoy her interactions with DKS. He might be blunt but I feel like she’s being herself when she’s around him most likely because he already knew her from the past and now shares her secret. It’s also good that he recognizes when he’s wrong or too harsh and apologizes for it. I hope MR make some sincere friends and finally begin to enjoy her youth.

I see where you are coming  and you are right chingu  Society does focus to much on Beauty. We have to remember chingu this concept will never go away because this is the picture Society want. We all live in world that Beauty is the two edged sword. You can beautiful be hated or admired, You can do PS to be more beautiful and be hated or admired. We as a society must tell an individual that loving yourself is what matters because that is the only way you can ever be happy. Remember we all make judgement in our every day lives because of how we view the world. Chingu, that is what it looks like but I saw it differently because If you watch his body language it screams "LONER" Not judgement.  @enigmatic_zephy I recommend you read the manga , you will see what I see or maybe not chingu.  :heart::heart:  

true.. more than society concept.. i would probably say, people should recognize they are just another animal specie .. and lust/beauty is very primal thing..

 

And therefore, people shouldn't look down upon beauty as a strength by ridiculing or trying to find lack of IQ or "personality depth" .. example, if a girl is pretty and gets all the boys then don't go about dissing her saying she is shallow; or if a pretty girl scores highest in the class, or when a pretty girl gets job over a non pretty one (because she might have been a little less smart than non pretty one.. but sh ewasn't dumb to begin with)

 

lol.. whom am i kidding.. we are born to get envious, jealous.. etc etc..

This is as good as cheese in the trap.. music, acting, color pallete of the screen..

and our astro guy can act (or atleast this deadpan look looks fine )

 

how are the ratings?

it would be shame if this is not doing well.. if not rating wise, but online should be a talking point..

 

peopl! promote the drama.. it's really good

I'm not the type who likes to get much spoiler when it comes to drama webtoon adaptation. But after I watched 2 eps last week, I started to read the webtoon. And all I can say both creations have their own charms, it's the same but not identically  copy as the original webtoon. But both are so great! I have read until ep 42 last night while waiting ep 3.

Even the drama modified the characters, like MR parents, KS drama vs KS in the webtoon, they still have the original traits but they behave differently, (in a good way). Some other characters are also changed in the drama but it still keep going as what the webtoon tells.

And the story timeline seems like goes much random from the webtoon. What happened in 3 eps are actually something that happened in a different timeline in the webtoon. But it feels even much more fun. I enjoy watching the live adaptation and reading the webtoon version. They're giving the same length of greatness in a different package. I hope the drama team will keep doing this till the end. The drama doesn't have to be exactly the same as the webtoon but they can keep the originality of the story. So even you have got all spoiler from reading them you still keep wondering how the drama will go like. You guys should try reading it. I think I become addicted to it.

P.S. lol, Do Kyung Seok automatically connects me to D.O. and... oh... he's heading on tvn as crown prince, opps.. OT. Sorry.

Uhm sorry to drop in suddenly but i'm watching this drama and so far I love it , even though i'm annoyed with both of the leads for the way they are:D

 

But that's not why I am here I just want to know if the ost or the track that goes 'something in your eyes, tell me who I am...something something when you are near me, you can tell why'?

 

Pls just @me if you find it:D

 

This song seems to come up when ever the two are all by themselves. It came up on ep 3 and  DKS asked her out to lunch in a heart beat! Okay I need to go watch the sub episode. I like watching raw for the expressions on the face and then I watch the subs (my drama watching habits)

A slightly tedious episode for me. I really like the complexities of the relationship between the (presumptive) OTP, but the villains are written so crudely and unsubtly it's getting a bit tiresome. Mop is a caricature, very 1-D, and OTT at that, but the one that disappoints me most is Soo Ah. I want to see more subtlety to her scheming, and more background, too. As it is, she's so brazen that I find myself getting annoyed with KMR for not seeing it, which requires her to be dumber than a brain-damaged rock. I get that it's the victim mentality clinging to a perceived friend, but seriously, by now even she should be wising up. If Soo Ah were more discreetly manipulative and covertly cruel, it would make their interactions more credible. 

 

I guess it is is not easy to follow the script from a webtoon - like fans will hate if if there are too many differences but still it needs a few changes. It can become real trouble when the fans in the end don´t like it (like it happen with Chease in the Trap).

 

I can see a little try to give us a hint about Soo A - this did not happen on that early time in the webtoon. But her actions are really like it was in there.

 

I know what you mean with making Mi Rae looks stupid - so even KS called her dumb in the start (can´t recall that from the webtoon). There are first times I agree already. Maybe it makes it a bit more understandable in the webtoon for me because there was noone on her side before - like a loving mother or a best friend.
