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

Recommended Posts

Well that was a bit rough. I don't have time this morning to really comment since I watched the raw episode only. No clue if subs are out.

 

I am talking about NYJ. Do we have time for her back story? Well. I mean she is consistent. But man that woman is BRUTAL. Her answer is so frank and blunt. I was listening with a low volume since it was insanely early. But man why does she want to be alone? Having said that I could probably watch a drama of her being pursued by ODG. And being rejected. And then her having to face that family. And younger brothers.

 

Yeah. I really would watch a whole drama about her.

 

I am not going to comment about LSY because frankly the medical issue with his prosthesis does sound rather serious. It looks serious anyway looking at his condition. If you're talking about electronic feedback loop malfunctions from sensory fluctuations then yeah it is serious. Oh yeah, where did all the terminology come from? Well, isn't this what the writer is implying? Or do I have it wrong? That is what is wrong with the prosthetic right? The feedback loop mechanisms are overloading leading to either rhabdomyolsis or permanent nerve damage. Not that he had any that is why he is using a machine for one. 

 

Or am I too advanced for the writer? I probably am. Since the bartender and Dr is probably an engineering grad vs a medical grad then it has to be an electricity issue. Rather than a tissue issue.

 

Hahaha. One can tell when one is used to Korean medical dramas. To know the improbable and obscure medical issues it comes up with. I had to read up on a whole heap of syndromes and conditions in my time when working on medical drama translations.

After watching this ep, I know sooyeon is really stubborn but somehow I understand his feeling and his fear having to go back to his tough reality right after he is finally able to move freely like most of people do, on top of that he only experienced it in 1 year :tears: 

gosh this show touches a lot of humanity aspect :tears:

O my... what an ending... I dare not even check the preview! I think the anticipation for next episode will be with me this whole day. Maybe it's a good thing I'd be quite occupied today outdoors, so I won't keep checking the updates for tonight's episode.

 

I really really hope LSY will be okay. With his current condition, I don't know how long he can endure fighting those gangsters. Maybe the rage and frustration he's feeling earlier can be the driving force for him to keep fighting. Then will he be okay? Or will he collapse? In the middle of the episode, I honestly feel like smacking him for being so stubborn, for insisting to gamble his life in exchange for one normal day. I can understand him not wanting to go back to life on wheelchair in the past, but still, he is selfish for only thinking about fulfilling his wants and not considering how the way he live is affecting those who care about him - Kang, Jang, YR, and even Choi, I believe. If he only wants to live one day at time, he really shouldn't be pursuing YR in a relationship. When you commit yourself in a relationship, you should think about the other person too. SY doesn't really mind/care what happen to him, even if he dies. But how would that make YR feel? What would that (ie.him dying) leave YR? I am actually so angry at him, but because of the situation he's facing at the end of episode, I will hold back my ranting and hope he's okay to fight them with his bionic arm. At this point, I wholly support him wearing it so he can protect and defend himself. Argh! That despicable coward Cho, bringing a whole army with weapons just to beat up one guy. Shame on you! Shame on you!

There is so much that I could write about today all the ways in which my heart was moved.  Yet it's the beginning and flashbacks that touched me in a different way today that seem simple enough until her words followed...

" He always...  Talks about our today..."

 

Thinking about just those words and what it is that they say.  Her always sharing about their future and him in just being thankful for today.  It's thoughts such as these that are often overlooked and seeming less important than the rest of the episode.  Still I guess I just wanted to express his heart a bit.  When fate allowed bad things to happen within his world and his life was hanging by a thread.  When those questions came of why me and how can this be.  So dark were those days of being young and being trapped to the point that life was no longer living and taking a breath took more energy than he thought he could give...

 

He no longer takes anything for granted or has the courage in believing how something so undeserved and wonderful could even last.   It's as if he is constantly grateful for just one more day of him being a normal man walking beside her in this way.  It's like she is so amazing a dream that already came true.  So much so that he doesn't even want to be greedy in thinking about a future.  For he just want's to soak every bit of her up like a sponge while experiencing the here and now.  Taking pictures with his eyes and placing them safely within his heart..

Being thankful for simply being able to have had someone to

  JUST LOVE...

:heart:

May I just say how wonderful YR's heart is... even though she was occupied with her own problem to tears, she actually heard what GES shared with her about gis achievement that day. And before leaving, she took the time to congratulate him and encouraged him, assured him of his capabilities. That's what I love about her genuine heart for people.

I was really upset too when mr. jang told him he could die but he didn't care like how about yeoreum sooyeon-ah??? He really only thinks for present. But then I don't know I'm conflicted, I could feel he's dwelling on his condition, also his nature where he couldn't stand still when someone he loves is hurt, like what happened to yeoreum and inwoo, which he became frustrated with his limitation.

 

 

Again, for me this show is really good at portraying people's problem with their inner thought. It makes me realize we tend to give best solution or counseling to others but sometimes we forget that it's easier said than done. That's also why people are social beings, we need others to remind and help us because sometimes we couldn't think straight to our own problems, but as we advice others we also need to be more patient and try to put ourselves in their shoes to understand them and attempt the best way to correct their decision for the better.

I'm sad this show is going to end soon..

I like today Eps so much I understand sy  so much even when I am angery  from him to be keep hurting  himself like this , but I understand  the man who only lived one year a miracle  dream after 11 years of suffering and losing everything even the right to be normal on his own eyes before others

 

I think yr  doing great she just what sy  need, she can't hide her feeling  but  she not forcing him on anything  she just here care  and worry about him so much to force him to see that 

 

Sy  need her like this he can't be told to give up what he fear the most to live and enjoy the today  normal life even if it cost him all his future  we notice the hints of that early  that he only think of today not dream of anything  more , but in the same time he need someone  who care so much about him to worry  like this without even speaking  to force him see how much his health  is more important  and his future is not own only by him. 

 

I like the preview  too , thank @samecut123 for sharing it :heart: I know I should be afraid of this preview  since things get even worse from every side but I think I am okay for now , the amount  of painful dilemma  sy show till now was more than any danger can happen , he break my heart  so much with this little scene in the few last 3 eps by shown great pain with simple wishes of life 

 

@USAFarmgirl I like your post so much it just how I feel right now ,my poor sy  that person  made my heart full of emotional, I love so much but he need to stop ,but I understand  him I can't even say he should act different  I know what logic  say but I had already see that coming  from the moment  he promised to leave after one month, from the moment he wanted to enjoy the love without thinking about telling her the ture from that moments i start to fear  and understanding his problem and pain , the pain of just wanted to enjoy today since he has zero hope that it can last for tomorrow everytime  

 

His 11 years of suffering  was more affecting than can we just judge  with logic it was so much pain from body to mind for us to just say he shouldn't do that , but still we worry for him  and wanted him to stop before he get himself killed or destroyed for good ( I hope not) 

 

 

One thing I don't like, they didn't give yr  enought  space  to feel her suffering  too, about being adopted, the bullying things, her father and family issues she also another victim her with so much  wounds but they show her reason and suffering  so fast without  making us feel it so much 

And about team leader yang, chief  cho , siw  it was not enought 

( I think that maybe come from changing  of episodes number but I didn't like that they also part of our  big interested from the start)

@11moonstone I say, I think you might want to wait to get the translations for the preview. THAT was not a very reassuring preview by the way. Not at all. And it's not because I like LSY.

 

What the heck is going on? How come the SIW story is coming out NOW towards the end? I think there is already enough problems with the prosthetics even without him getting beaten up or threaterned. And how did HYR know he was in danger in the toilets? And knew to get security?

 

Also, kyah is my ODG and NY ship going to sail? * fluttering heart here *

Yes, I feel like this next episode would be sad.. I think he said something like "yeoreum-ah it's okay, really, come here" and enough for me to feel all this butterflies and erase all other intense scenes from my mind lol how lonely I am :D

Omo, the preview.  The guy who comes with the thugs to men's restroom for revenge on LSY, he is the guy who stabbed YR, isn't it?  So he is getting back at LSY for beating him up.  LSY is in deep trouble.  Already IW connected gang is targeting him.  Moreover, he is already sick.  These are all no- good signs.  Hope there is a happy ending for our couple.

 

I think from the preview, he beat all the thugs who came upon him.  In the preview, IW asks him does he know who he has messed with by beating the thugs.  

Also, his nose is bleeding when he was with YR.  Maybe she accompanied him to the men's restroom when this guy comes to revenge on LSY.  Since she identified the guy is there for some trouble to LSY, she went to ODG/ NJ for help.

I was expecting to be angry at SY for being so stubborn about his own health in this episode. But his conversation with Mr. Jang shed so much heartbreaking insights into his psyche. I am still very angry, but not at SY.  Instead I am so furious at the society that has made him felt so insufficient for what he perceived as not being "whole". How bad it mustve been for him to choose possible death over going back to his old life on a wheelchair. I was practically gasping at his desperation and drive to just live in the moment. Bless YR and her heart for trying her best to be with and for him. Yes, she was bumbling around with her effort, but that's just so YR. I trust that she will not lost her way in regards to this matter. Despite her bumbling way, she seems to always manage to get through SY's defense and get to the heart of the matter. I hope tonight episode will focus on YR's efforts to make SY realize that he will be loved and perfect as he is, with or without the prosthetic. 

 

This drama made me wonder the state of disability rights in South Korea. I actually did some research on this, and I have to say that the drama depiction may not be too far from reality:

http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20170917000140 

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/09687599.2017.1321223 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51zUKR0camI&list=PLqXeWt98fEwoDYHJePfF46uz_hq3Z9VZN&index=73

 

I hope this drama brings more awareness about the challenge that people with disability faces in South Korea. I am glad that the rating for this drama is quite good. I hope this will have an impact on the way people perceive this issue. Still hating the whole mafia arc (I'd rather have those screen time used for other people, even for Manager Gong!), but I guess I have to just brace myself since the writer appears to be hellbent on trying to redeem IW, sigh.....

Or am I too advanced for the writer? I probably am. Since the bartender and Dr is probably an engineering grad vs a medical grad then it has to be an electricity issue. Rather than a tissue issue.

 

Hahaha. One can tell when one is used to Korean medical dramas. To know the improbable and obscure medical issues it comes up with. I had to read up on a whole heap of syndromes and conditions in my time when working on medical drama translations.

Lol on the medical terms accuracy.  Personally,  i'm not a fan of medical drama, unless you count Jewel in the Palace but that would go more under sageuk i guess.  Anyway, i know the writers try to be as accurate as possible but i always stop myself from thinking about the factual accuracy of dramas.  I just accept whatever the writers throw at us as if they are facts in the drama universe.  Cant say i havent felt frustrated. 

 

As for your comment on NYJ, agreed,  i would totally watch a drama purely about NYJ and ODG.  That's how much i've grown to love their characters and storyline. Never shipped the second pair this much since Oh My Venus.

Agreed,  i understand too,  which makes it even more frustrating. On the one hand,  he deserves to live the life that he wants. On the other, what about his loved ones? Are they supposed to let him do things that would harm himself? It's a tough question.  I feel like SY needs to know that the people who love him will stay with him even if he is wheelchair-bound for the rest of his life.  Especially YR,  who loves him and wants to be with him no matter what. Sometimes, i feel like Sy is asking the wrong question.  Instead of wondering if YR can accept him for who he is,  he should really ask if HE can accept himself in that condition,  because right now,  his stubbornness  is because he himself cant come to terms with his condition.  Which is sad,  really, especially if he is willing to risk his life because of it.  I feel like Sy is being unfair to YR this way.  She wants to look forward to their future.  He just wants to live in the present with her. But if he dies,  he's going to leave her scarred for life.  

 

Anyway,  the preview. YJ asks ODG if he is mad at her.  (girl,  seriously?  Is he supposed to celebrate you rejecting him?  :huh:

 

But later,  she asks him what he likes about her..  So a progress,  i guess?  Could YJ be letting her guard down for once and follow her heart too and not just her head?  Please let them get together already.  The drama needs something light and fluffy amidst all the sickness/thugs plotlines. 

 

Also, seems like the big confrontation will not end well for the bad guys?  SY has bruises on his face but seems ok.  And also,  are they going for revenge 2.0 at the airport toilet again,  with knife attacker in tow?

Can i say that SY has intense nose bleeds? 

 

But I have to say i give YR this episode... from the first episode to now, i feel like she has experienced a lot of growth in her character... however its been opposite for SY... granted he has a lot going on for him... 

 

I, like many wanted to be angry at SY for the way he's acting... because I'm like DONT DO THAT TO YEO REOM! you can't just DIE! but i can also understand how he feels... what a dilemma.... haha. i'm so not interested in the thugs and SIW story, it's really irriating that its going to be dragging that out until the end of the drama. 

 

I keep seeing that the drama is going to be 32 episodes.... i mean i dont know what kind of ending we are getting at this point but... i want someone to tell me that we are getting more episodes... I WANT MY LOVEY DOVEY PARTS...........  

 

The preview is going to put us at another cliffhanger... sigh... turn this drama around writers!
