[Drama 2018] The Beauty Inside Drama Remake, 뷰티 인사이드

Recommended Posts

oh my gosh, the scene at the beginning of the episode is so heartfelt and well-written—i'm really glad the writer chose to show DJ grappling with the questions and consequences of what he would do if SG really did stay this way forever—that's what is realistic, to think about these things. he struggled with himself and then made a conscious decision about staying with the one he loves no matter what form she took—that is much more romantic to me than DJ just impulsively declaring his love and devotion for her. being thoughtful and pondering over how his life would change, how it would become harder—and then still deciding, no, i can endure it all so long as i have her by my side—that's one hundred times better. this writer is doing so, so well <3 also . . . having her change at the exact moment he hugged and chose her forever as she wept over it felt like so many fairytale staples in one—the kiss of true love, destiny, tears of healing, etc. etc. perf. 

 

also, i'm so glad this yuri plot has been resolved, it's been vaguely stressful to watch a malicious person be so set on trying to expose SG. it was a bit scary as she kept stalking her and becoming more and more obsessive, but thankfully SG put in her place (and how well!) in this episode so we can focus on bigger and better plot arches. also, that conversation right after when SG+manager were giggling over the article was the best; eunho's + DJ's shocked and amused looks (respectively) made me laugh so hard. it was so relatable, that's me and my friends anytime we're together <3 + eunho's line of dialogue: "i'm so glad you guys are on my side. let's stay friends for eternity." lololol. and the assistant-doggy scene and eunho's olive branch of friendship at DJ's dejection :'

 

also, DJ's family is dysfunctional but loving, still—and at this point, it can only get better. reminds me somehow of that lilo&stitch quote: ohana means family. family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. and this is my family. i found it, all on my own. it's little, and broken, but still good. yeah . . . still good. * cries * 

 

other moments i found really cute: omg. the chopstick drop. the moment of realization. the hand over mouth. i die. this is so good. // :' when SG squished DJ's cheeks together. uff. // their deep talks are so cute. they confide so much in one another <3

 

oh my gosh. i feel so bad for SG. i feel like though this separation trope is overused, it actually makes sense in this situation. when she remembers all the moments she dismissed or made light of his illness, of him practicing and practicing and practicing until he was so frustrated because it didn't help, of the night on the rooftop when he told her he hated himself since that day, when he said that he wasn't alright with the way he was, that he wanted to see her as she was, immediately, without trouble--i mean, if someone i loved so much bared their heart to me and told me all these intimate insecurities and worries and then i found it was all my fault that he was the way he was—the guilt would be unbearable. i don't know how i would live with myself. i don't know how i would ever forgive myself. so though it makes sense—that it isn't her fault, that she really was helpless in that first transformation—to me, it doesn't at all invalidate her feelings. that burden is so heavy. the question is not whether he is alright with it or whether he doesn't care, the question is whether she can ever come to terms with the fact that she has put him through so much suffering. whether she can ever look at him again without feeling shame and bitterness for herself. that's the sort of thing that happens when you love someone that much. in the end, if i were her, i would have reacted the same way. so even though i know that this is a trope that comes up a lot in kdramas, it makes the utmost sense to me here. (that's just my two cents, haha.)

This is so true! I just realized that, DJ's love for SG is so deep that he doesn't care of the past. He even said that saving her was the best decision she made in his life. But how SG will accept the fact that everytime he see DJ, it will always remind her that she's the cause of his suffering.

@farishta, agree with what you said about SG’s guilt. I understand her reaction to it and wanting to break up. Can’t fathom how unbearable the guilt must be for her. With that, I’m apprehensive about how SG and DJ are going to make sense of this and resolve this in a way that is meaningful and not a cop out! 

 

Having said that, I’m really happy with how the obstacles in the recent episodes have been resolved. No noble idiocy on SR’s part when she found out about DJ’s condition. Instead they worked together to take down the evil ex-fiancé. So satisfying to watch! 

 

How SG took down CYR was also really really satisfying to watch. You go girl! Hehe. 

 

Overall, it was a really satisfying episode. Makes me want to rewatch the earlier episodes, especially when they flashbacked to earlier interactions between SG and DJ! 

 

On a side note... does anyone else think LMK is getting skinner? He looked like he lost weight in the past 2 episodes.

@shjfan23 yes, exactly!! i noticed him saying that in the preview too. it’s heart-wrenching and very truthful of him (because of course he would choose SG’s life over everything), but right now, i think SG needs to try to come to terms with the situation on her own. <3

 

@kdrmalover4444 ahaha, thank you!! i’m glad you enjoyed reading my thoughts, i just wrote down what i thought in the moment. thank you for being so sweet to me <3 <3 <3 

 

@7psyche7 glad for your understanding and kind words—and yes, that’s definitely a hesitation about the situation at hand!! will they deal with it well and make sure that their reuniting means something and was worth the separation? i don’t know. i hope it will be though, because so far the writer has been relatively consistent and hasn’t let me down all that much yet. and i really love the way sara and DJ’s relationship becomes more and more affectionate with each passing episode as well, haha! and as for LMK’s haggardness—i’d assume it’s because of the work schedule and the rush to film. from what i can tell, they’re filming everything for long periods of time and right before deadlines, which probably increases fatigue. i think others have mentioned this too. plus, that’s why SHJ remains pretty radiant—she has the cameos decreasing her workload.

Love to read your recaps @farishta welcome back. :wub:

 

Yea the production is in a rush, the schedule is very tight and crazy, they literally shoot two days before airing. I remember LMK mentioned he dropped weight so easily, so no complain at all, they're really working so hard, i hope JTBC will give some holiday rewards. :rolleyes:

 

Meanwhile, LMK ig's update

But it's a bit selfish, no? I mean... for that reason she only thinks about herself. Her pain, her guilt. She doesn't think about DJ and that drives me nuts. If I felt guilt about something I will try to do something and repair as much damage as I could. And no matter how hard it would be for me, in that case my hardship doesn't matter at all. Because it's my fault and I need to face all consequences. 

She said "I don't deserve him". But it's not for her to decide. With the breakup route she only cause more damage to DJ. Instead of helping him with his life she gave him more pain. And he really doesn't deserve this.

 

In drama "Devilish Joy" main heroine also thinks that health condition of the main hero it's her fault somehow. Yes, her "fault" much less than it in this drama. But condition of main hero is much worse also. And what she thinks out of guilt? Break up? No. "I will protect you from now on". And that attitude I'm embrace.

This is so good too! Another side of the story! We really have different view on how SG should handle it and I’m loving how it’s been discussed here.

It will really depends on how SG views this. Oh how the writer gives us all this thoughts!:D

Approximately 1 hr till TBI! Idk but for some reason I believe that our century couple will resolve their problems right then and there after SG said let's break up in the preview. Maybe I got my hopes up after she herself went to DJ immediately at the start of ep 13 even though she decided to hide from him when she won't revert back to herself. 

 

I think SG was used to internalizing her pain until she can't take it anymore then she'll just cry out alone or if she's drunk she'll drunk call someone lol. Also, she most likely developed a mindset to run away/push away people first when there's a problem with people labelling her as the actress who always runs away and the nature of her unique sickness making it easier to hide from anyone (unless your DJ). So the people close to her just learn to read her like Woomi did when she has some concerns. What I like about SG though is that she always comes back to her senses and makes up real hard for her mistakes. Anyway, it's still just a preview so we'll see in this episode if our concerns are unfounded. I don't know how my heart will manage though if they put the breakup scene as the cliffhanger :sweatingbullets:

:lol: That's been my thought too. That if she feels responsible then she should take responsibility and look after him! Not, "Sorry I ruined your life, goodbye!" Instead, "Sorry for what happened because of me, from now on I'll take care of you!"

 

The running away method of taking responsibility does my head in. It's such an over used trope, although it's kinda funny to see it switched around here with the heroine wanting to run away instead of the hero.

 

I'm sure that even if she's chosen to, it won't last long. For one, we don't have that many episodes left, and secondly, their on screen chemistry is so good, it'd be mad to split them apart now. I think she'll be talked around quickly once the shock of this news wears off... Hopefully!

They're still not showing some scenes on the preview omg I'm worried about this coming cliffhanger. HSG is currently talking to SDJ's mom and kneeling in front of her, mom is worried I have no idea what they are talking about other than SG saying sorry. SDJ saw them!

Cue break up line.

 

Ohh that violet outfit is for the movie premiere of SIX. CYR was not able to attend heh. Suddenly HSG saw SDJ at the back of the hall and inside the cinema but SG walked out and DJ followed her to the parking lot as shown in the preview. SG went home and confess to WM the story while crying. Huhu I thought WM will tell her to talk it with DJ but SG was crying hard. Cut to her loading some suitcases in the car then DJ arrived and she blocked him so I guess WM agrees to whatever SG requested. The next morning a news breakout about SG that shocked a lot of people (I'm not sure if it is really resigning or she just announce that she will be on a long hiatus and will go far away or something). Sec Jung showed the news to DJ, SG calls him, told him something and ended the call saying she loves him very much. DJ quickly drives to her apartment finding it stripped bare but the picture room was untouched and he remembered something SG said before about the blank center frame on the wall, then he proceeded to breakdown.....end

I like that we are actively discussing about the recent development in SG and DJ’s relationship. Leads to lively discussion! SG is flawed, you can tell that her default way of coping is to run away just as what she did when she found out that DJ’s condition came about while saving her. 

 

However, I don’t think it’s her fault. She did not ask to be saved and DJ pushed her aside out of his own choice. I just think it’s a tragic situation.. no one’s at fault really. :tears: But of course it shouldn’t be something that drives them apart... I hope SG can find a way to work past her totally understandable guilt and that DJ and her loved ones will help her in the process. 

 

Excited to see how the writers handle this in the coming episode!

Me too. Will it be like years after? Or DJ will not stop looking for her after that breakdown?? I hope SG do something this time. Let her think first and realize that leaving DJ is not the right thing to do.. But, one week is very long! They better give us good bts videos! Lol
