@penelop3 I am glad that you are joining this thread.cheerleader pink mouse @turtle0217 @penelop3 Both thanks a lot for the compliment.crazy monkey 

 

Some people are complaining that KMR should have been more assertive to the student Kim Chan Woo. But they seem to forget that KMR has been abused for so many years. Being bullied is not different from domestic violence. Both are connected to physical and mental violence/abuse.

I agree, @bebebisous33. :) I don't see Mi-Rae as somebody who should or could've been more forward and more defensive in regards of Mr. Douchebag. As I said before I understand her. I've been bullied for various reasons in school as well. First because of my nose - hence why I took this as an example in my other post - and then for my weight - I had a accident and couldn't walk and therefore not do anything afterwards but people simply didn't care or know.

 

So I understand Mi-Rae's state of mind. At some point when being bullied there is a moment of fighting back and then giving up or trying to fit in in a morbid kind of way like accepting being the victim. I was lucky to have friends who defended me, so I had great support there. But even though I moved passed my insecurities during and after school I'm not free of moments of anxiety and insecurity from time to time. It leaves a mark no matter what. And since bullying in South Korea is on another level I can only imagine how terrible it must be but the fact that South Korea does have the highest suicide rates in the world and also the highest student suicides among those... it's saying  a lot.

 

So I didn't and still don't expect Mi-Rae to be suddenly sassy. I thought it was realistic she was worried and insecure but also worried to choose the wrong words when the one girl told her she got the looks and the pretty name while her name isn't pretty at all. Everything is going on in her mind instead of speaking out. I think the last scene was just a small step forward but a important one. As I said it's nice to have somebody else standing up for her but I think it's even more important for her speak up for herself and hopefully move past the trauma, even though it may never leave her.

 

Again I'm writing this without reading the webtoon. So no idea what's going to happen there.

 

Bully is just not a good thing. I mean for KMR's character like it's been with her growing up, it made her become a low self-esteem person and very self-cautious about everything around her. It destroyed a lot for KMR, mentally and physically. 

 

I'm glad she said something to that creep sunbae. I hope she starts to realize it sooner that it don't matter, she needs to stand up for herself and show people how she really is and the beauty inside of her.

 

That's why I'm liking where this drama is heading. It's a healing and acceptance storyline. I'm not keeping up expectation up high, but I am looking forward to the healing KMR and DKS will do for one another. 

 

@snowpearlxl Liking the video. :D

Hi guys

been missing for a couple weeks and finally i could watch the two episode and it's great so far. Although many people praising Eun Woo face rather than his acting in this drama. I see his acting finally developed much better. He nailed the rock stone Do Kyung Sook so much and Kang Mirae, gosh, she really like a carbon copy from the webtoon :D 

 i like how the story running right now and finally, Mirae has best friend in her side since in the webtoon she does have no one in her side and gosh, Kwak Dong Yeon as second lead already setting in my heart. Damn, he is so fine~

 

 

about her mother, her mother had a deep trauma over her husband and she really missed her children so much. She has illness after divorced her husband and i can't blame her thou. Her husband is a douchebag and i am wondering why they didn't put Burberry Body perfume as the perfume instead. Well this time the Attelier

Glad to see other Kwak Dong Yeon fans here!!! :)

Has anyone noticed that he is an actor that always seems to play characters that are older than his real age? Maybe because he looks older and portrays a more mature vibe than his 21 years? ;)

According to the plot synopsis he will "take an interest" in Mi Rae, which is a bit weird with him being her teacher and all... I am not complaining, though, as I am just happy to see him on TV again.

Hi chingus!

Joining in the party...

@ruzikie I think the thread now is a bit livelier than before. :)   

Nice to meet you here again @stuartjmz!

Hello dongsaeng @athena22

I just backread and thankfully it's just 6 pages for now.  Loved reading your thougths as usual @bebebisous33 @Jillia @stuartjmz @penelop3 @turtle0217

 

 Starting this drama without reading the webtoon yet and thinking this to just another light drama, I was surprised by the issues tacked first hand in the first episode and I guess will be something that will be addressed hopefully in this show.  I also think that they actors are doing a great job with their specific roles.  They are all quite new to me except KDY, who I have only seen in Moonlight.

 

I think this is the first drama that addresses the issue of plastic surgery.  SoKor is the land of PS.  I personally am not into it unless as @Jillia said one needs it for medical reason.  Although I can't and don't judge people who do so.  Everyone have their own lives to live and we can never know other people's experiences that lead to whatever decisions they made. Each decision have consequences they carry with it.  I think living in SK, MR already know that she will be getting these sort of reactions from people that is why she is insistent of not revealing her identity to people from the past.  But really what a hypocritical society we have when one look like this she's doomed but when she decides to do PS, she is even more cautious because of the way people will treat her.  One just have nowhere to go. :( 

 

People are starting to recognize that there is a problem called bullying.  Many of these cases are evident in Korea.  There are various forms of bullying portrayed in this show.  I am glad that they were able to show them.  MR was bullied as a kid because she was fat.  It has always been a problem with kids since they are impressionable still and still have to learn a lot in life.  Many kids gets bullied for various causes.  Unfortunately, MR's bullying did not end up there, even during middle school with a slim figure she gets bullied again for her facial features.  It is sad so see her plight.  She was clearly loved by her parents but then those cannot even overcome the harshness she have to go through.  It's harder for the one being bullied especially if people gang up to bully her.  Another and more serious bullying is for newbies in school being taken advantage by seniors just because they are weak.  I hate the scumbag for planning to rape her.  She was already feeling uneasy with him beside her.  Thankfully DKS was there to save the day.  I hope this senior will have his comeuppance soon.  

 

I hope this show will be good till the end.  Hoping to come here often even if just to read your thoughts.

I just started the first episodr this morning and I also started reading the webtoon, but I'm confused. In the webtoon, Mr doesn't know KS but it the drama she knows him?

In the webtoon, she knows him too. It is just that she doesn't recognize him that quickly.

Hi @nonski Glad to see you on this thread, too. :D Yes, it is a lighter drama and less to take in. So far it's been good at easing us in, so hopefully it turns out well.

Lol! I didn't know Cha Eun Woo until I saw The Best Hit. I'm a big fan of Cha Tae Hyun and his dragon bros, so that's how I got to know who Cha Eun Woo was. I was really surprised when I saw him become a main lead for a drama, I don't know, but I don't think he's been a main lead..? (correct me if I'm wrong) But honestly, as a young freshly new idol, he's good.

 

I honestly think that Im Soo Hyang doesn't look that young, but her acting is really good to fit KMR. I read partial of the webtoon and yes, she does fit the character. (In my opinion) But I am loving Cha Eun Woo as DKS.

I feel so sorry for the rest of the cast and crew. I am really enjoying this drama. Hope they come up with a solution for this. Maybe change pd? Is it possible to change pd amidst while drama is airing?

Okay wow... this escalated quickly and I completely undersstand the person who can't support this drama after finding out about this. I was honestly reading about it when it happened back then. :( Well I will definitely reconsider whether I will keep watching or not. It's definitely a no-no to me to support people who are involved in any type of crime, may it be sexual assault, sexual harrassment or rape. So if this ends up being true I'm going to drop the drama for sure.

 

Which is sad for the cast and crew but a line must be drawn.

Hello..first time posting in this thread..it's been a while I didn't post in a drama thread.. I'm so addicted to this drama huhuhu..the vibe of this drama is different than the drama I watched before..maybe because I like this kind of genre..like CITT.. :lol:

 

I somehow think that the scriptwriter of this drama should write more lines for the lead and not to follow exactly from the webtoon as long as it still follow the storyline.. ok..I try to understand that maybe currently MR & KS just started to know each other and still awkward because of MR is kinda shy and a low self esteem girl while KS is cold as ice...so far Cha Eun Woo's acting is not bad..especially the way he look at MR is totally different compare to the way he look at the snake girl SA..but when watched the BTS, he is totally a different person from the drama..lol

 

I really can't wait to watch next episode!! I'm sure KS will follow MR when he saw her like that after she had a fight with that crazy senior..huhuhu

Ok I checked 3 different  info sites that are generally very accurate when it comes to kdramas (Asian wiki, koreandrama.org and the drama’s Wikipedia page where all the sources are from korean sites) and they all say the PD is Choi Sung-Bum not Song Byungjoon??

Thanks a lot for the info. I even checked it out myself and you are right. The PD is a different person. Before posting something like that, the person should be sure about the facts. I mean, such a post can ruin a drama... based on false facts and rumors.

They just need to change the pd.

 

I remember I think it was the drama Cross starring Jeon So Min and Go Kyung Pyo, the guy that played Jeon So Min's father in the drama did something horrible in real life and they just changed the storyline to remove him. So for this case, I'm sure they are going to change PD.

Saw this on JTBC's instagram. Thought I share it.
