[Drama 2018] Where Stars Land / Fox Bride Star ★ 여우각시별

Recommended Posts

Long rants ahead :sweatingbullets: 

 

Spoiler

I have to say that episode 12 is the very first episode of this drama that I actively dislike. After the emotional high of last week, episode 12 was such a disappointment for me. Is this the curse of ep 12 that seems to plague the currently airing drama? I am thankful that DK and YJ storyline provided the cute, but it's not enough to allay my dissatisfaction, because unfortunately I am not here for the cute. Because to be very honest, SY-YR story is the emotional center of this drama for me. It is their romance that touch my heart, making it swell and ache at each progression and regression. What made me stay with this drama despite its glaring flaws is their affecting connection to each other and growth as a character.

 

And I feel that episode 12, at least until the last 5 minutes when SY decided to show his bionic arm, is a misstep in the story direction. I was really frustrated with the scene of SY beating-up the guy, not so much of how scary it was, but I have this bad feeling that this story arc is created to serve as a platform for IW's redemption (so SY is now in the warpath again with the mafia that has ruined his life, and hence IW, I suspect, can try to save SY from them). Instead of focusing on the very human struggle between SY and YR to be in the relationship, the drama appears to take a strange turn with the mafia, IW's (I assume) nefarious plan for the airport, and some shady businessmen related to IW. And I felt that the contemplative beat of the drama took a back seat for this darker and melodramatic turn. Because I could care less about IW and his inner struggle/drama, this turn in the story at the final hours of the drama made me go a bit batty and cranky. 

 

Thankfully, episode 13 is a much better viewing experience for me (despite my sinking feeling that we will see more of IW's and his mafia connection arc next week). Because at least, it regains back most of its contemplative mood and focus on the human connection. I appreciate the way the drama handle the aftermath of SY's confession of his secret to YR. I love that despite the shock of knowing SY's secret, YR first reaction was about SY's well-being, about whether being with her will not harm him. I find it very sweet that she's the first one that says "I love you".  And I am happy that her awkwardness about SY's condition was mostly caused by her fear of saying the wrong thing that will hurt him instead of having a second thought of her feelings toward him. This is what I want more, their story of trying to hold on to each other despite the odds and circumstances. 

 

Amidst my dismay of this week's turn of event in this dramaland, one thing that I look forward to see is the blooming friendship between YR and YJ. I've got a feeling both girls dont really have lots of close female friends, if any. YR due to the bullying, while YJ due to her appearance of coldness. This potential friendship between these two is something that I want to see more, because they're both so adorable together. More of this and less of IW's shenanigans please! I am crossing my fingers for a better week next week. Though I have been burnt too frequently by kdrama endings, so I will remain only cautiously optimistic.

I'm not really sure but I guess they release it on Saturday. But it depends, sometimes it's earlier.

@11moonstone, thanks for sharing the preview link, been waiting for the preview since tuesday.  Wish that there is sub available though,  but i did catch something from the preview.

 

ODG : I care. I keep worrying about you/I care about you (or something along this line) 

Hopefully i got the translation correct here based on what i heard and my non-existent Korean understanding.

 

Im glad we finally have the second pair featured in the preview. I hope they get together sooner rather than later so we can watch them date and be all cute with each other lol.. 

 

Anyway,  from the preview, I think Jang will not ask YR to break up with SY.  Maybe he will just reveal how badly SY is hurting because of the device plus his stubbornness to get some rest and be tested.  This is why YR will go all ultra protective mode and will not let SY do any physical tasks,  to the point where she will overexert herself and injure her foot. 

 

I think after the meeting with Jang,  the girls aka future besties will spend the night drinking. YR because of SY and YJ because of ODG. They pass out in the living room and SY will come to their home in the morning. Meanwhile,  YJ is already shown as someone who is not a good drinker so she will go to work feeling sick, which will worry ODG. 

 

And isnt it sweet that ODG is wearing the socks YJ gave him?  He should let her know he is wearing the socks. She will stop being upset at  him immediately.  :lol:

Hello guys

 

If been lurking for this forum quite a long time. And finally try to join

 

Find this on ig. And someone says maybe YR & SY will breakup

 

 

I did hear that final line on break up too,  so it really was SY saying about the break up. 

 

And it seems like it wont be so happy for the second couple too.  So i did hear the words wrong.  :bawling:

 

It makes sense now why ES will tell YR not to go.  Because if YR and SY broke up,  ES will seize his chance,  he made that very clear already.  

 

For ODG and NYJ,  i hope they get together by Tuesday's ep.

I saw the preview and I just hope somebody would translate it :rolleyes::wub:

 

I am glad we still have 3 more episodes to go. 

I hope all the problems would be resolved beautifully... 

 

Oh wait. What did Ko Eun Sob said when he’s stopping Yeo Reum? “don’t lie”

or “don’t go”. Ahhh. Me and my poor Korean. 

 

As for SY n YR... I think what SY said was. “Last night when we parted, something happened, right?” Something like that.. NOT about them getting a break up.

or was it my wishful thinking?? Gosh Idk... :sweatingbullets:

Really a break up...? I never trust fully preview tough. I feel they maybe gonna have an argument about his health maybe, consider she is showing to be giving SY extra attention and he gonna feel he is a problem for her... Also there is so many other stuff happening that do they have time for a really break up? I feel this gonna be a learning curve for them to how to give right consideration for each other, also about how to communicate to each other about their inner thought and worry. I hope this is what next weeks episode gonna be about. There is so many other tread to close, so we need a power OTP that gonna fight to be together. anyway, this is my prediction :)

I also thought so too, I think he said something like this 어젯밤에 나는 헤어주구... I tried to google translate, it could be this "I let you go last night" right? Ahhh.. please don't break up :(

Im so scared.. please no more angst.  Just focus beating in woo and his gangster only

Not a fan on in woo but in a way you have to give him the benefit of the doubt. He is no saint but even to the gangsters,  he does try to protect SY by hiding him from them, and acting all aloof.  This is why he also tries to get rid of SY from the airport,  even though i highly disagree with his methods.  The mystery of why SIW is involved with the gangsters even though he clearly has the skills to go up the corporate ladder and make tons of money,  so it still baffles me why he associates himself with the bad guys. I do believe he has a chance to redeem himself,  but we have to wait for future eps to find out more.

 

Regarding the translation for the preview,  a link is already shared but like some of you,  i wonder about the translation too.  But i did hear SY saying "break up" but you cant read too much into a short preview

Hmm, I don't hear anything about break-up from the preview... I doubt they will go that route, but YR being so obvious not letting SY do any physical work is a little too much. If I were SY, I'd feel uncomfortable too... What she needs to do is to ask him take some leaves and not wear those device for the time being. Wonder what and how much Jang tells her. Maybe only a very general being weak/sick...?

 

ODK is wearing the socks!! :lol:

Oh, btw, I really really love seeing YR and SY hug... Their hugs make it look like they're fitting so well into each other so much. The hug at the airport empty corridor, at the top of the apartment stairs, at the roadside after YR's confession....
