[Drama 2018-2019] Top Star Yoo Baek 톱스타 유백이

Recommended Posts

As he’s walking he sees halmoni secretly exchanging something with speedy Gonzales ..KS came back tried to stop him from going to them.  He was suspicious..he ask her what’s all this ..halmoni was trying to get him ramyeon powder to make the food tastier for him.   He was so moved , says not to trouble . He’ll join them for dinner , they were surprised. He was so touched when KS put seafood on his plate , he ate well 

 

Then he goes to bathroom , he took his clothes to wash. Lol.,they use the same bath tub for everything- wash clothes , soak kimchi , bathe ! As he was washing his clothes , KS teased him about his leopard underwear..he tried to grab from her ..he slipped .,.she caught him ..role reversal ..lmao !!!

Dang it why is this one episode a week -

 

in preview she & MD are obviously very close & he’s the TOP Star on this island with the village folks celebrating his return , YB very jealous ..but it seems like KS is opening up to him as well. The two men start becoming very competitive.

 

—arghh how to wait till next week??-

Thank u loads @triplem for the live recap! I'm glad I stayed up because this second episode sounds so good! I can't wait to see the interactions between our OTP. Poor YB. It seems like he didn't have a happy childhood. :bawling:

WeLcome . You’ll enjoy the episode. YB is really quite a lost soul. And he isn’t as arrogant as he was . He’s got some sad back story . He does not realise it yet but she’s got a calming effect on him.

True true . If you watch this preview , i think like what you said earlier , she’s comfortable with MD but I think YB will be the one to make her heart flutter .

Oh this scene was so good as well, she teased him about his leopard spot undies , he ended up slipping & she caught him k drama style :joy:

And earlier scene of him hiding in the goat shed 

:lol:

@triplem thank you so much for the recap :) can’t wait to watch it with subtitle. Hopefully we won’t have to wait longer for the sub. I saw the clip of Kang Soon catching him from falling and I literally spilled my drink because of that. OMG why he is the one who got princess treatment here :lol: princess-style carry by Speedy ajussi and then catched from falling by Kang Soon :D Love to see him changed his attitude slowly. Maybe he felt touched by halmoni and Kang Soon because back in Seoul because he has no one to really care about him. I am curious about his backstory too.

Finally Ma Dol is coming back :lol::lol: jealous Top Star ssi is coming!

Why is she suddenly wanting to try makeup? Is that for Ma Dol or..? That purple eyeshadow :lol::lol: and arm wrestling competition between YB and MD. I bet that will end up in funny way. 

Why do we need to wait for a week again? I wish this drama was a daily drama.

Aww that scene was so unexpectedly funny...but my god when she put the toothbrush in her mouth...OCD me was screaming for her to take it out from her mouth.  I guess it is an indirect kiss :D

Managed to make some screen captures...

Like how open and warm the village folks are. They love to tease him , lol. There's a lot of progress for him as well ...

I really like this scene...this place is beautiful and this is what our top star needs . not those sleeping pills..5eMEe0N.png

 

@annie1234 This once a week thing is killing me. I wonder too who she's putting the make up for...but my hunch is not MD. I think she's suddenly becoming aware of some other guy apart from her long time oppa.  

 

@akiera JSM is a chemistry station.  She's also very natural in all her roles. Glad it's trending on naver.

I tried so hard not to watch it without subs. But I can't. I spoiled myself for a couple of minutes. Oh gosh... I love this show! The Jack Sparrow protecting his blackpearl is so fun :lol: it's quite dark to identify the face of this captain, but I recognize his voice. It's LSY right :lol:

 

Ah... waiting for subs and BRB later

Pls join us !!! It’s really fun & good acting  . Chinese subs & Indonesian subs are fast . English subs are taking some time due to it being fan subbed . Not sure why the official sites are not picking it up 

 

Drama continues to do well

 

Spoiler

 

 

rewatching some scenes on IG , I realised how much I love these scenes 

I love the role reversals - he’s the one who gets carried Princess style & it’s his heart that is fluttering first :lol:

Haha . Me too . Given KJS being educated in the UK , he’s got the  accent down to a pat . 

These scenes shows a lot of YB’s improvement in attitude -

He was actually very moved here when he discovered that halmoni took the trouble to look for ramyeon flavouring to put in the soup. She thought it would give him more appetite . He responded by saying he’ll eat with them , I think 

 

 

 

 

 

in the first episode he won’t even touch any drinks that are not sealed etc ( an indication of his lack of trust ) , but here he ate whatever she put on his bowl. Even asked for more helpings . I was so pleased to see him eat as if I’m the one cooking, lol! I’m glad we didn’t hv to wait like half way through the show before we got to see him change for the better .

We only have 11 or 12 eps instead of the usual 16 eps format so I guess the plot will be more tighter instead of making the viewers to loose their hair. By ep 3rd itself ML and 2ndML are going to confront each other and the heroine may even realize her feelings so what lies ahead? From the BTS at least it seems like she will go back to the main land. For one thing, I don't want to leave the island, "Top star shi just settle down here, you will like that, won't you?" :huh: While it was fun to watch Top star shi getting trolled by the villagers, it will be painful to watch kang soon being the fish out of the water in the city. 

 

Just that all in all it seems to be going little fast and I don't want them to drag it drown by the end.

BTW are the eps longer than the normal 16 ep format?

Wait. Is this drama only 12 ep? I thought it will be 16 episodes. 

 

Is Kang Soon really following Yoo Baek to Seoul? I hope he will protect her there. Seoul will be a very new and strange experience for her. If she will follow him there, I wonder how Ma Dol character can be put into the story there. It’s unlikely for Ma Dol to go to Seoul as well. 

 

And @triplem OMG i didn’t know that Kim JiSuk studied in England. I just googled him and found out he was majoring in German for Foreign Study. No wonder his english is so so good. Scrambled egg, coffee, salad, and milk. Hahaha. The way he said those things are really not Korean-English way.

@akiera @annie1234 This particular TvN slot is only 10episodes but 70 mins each . That’s why plot has to be tight & fast . I read k nets have been asking them to move slots & make it twice a week , lol! But personally, I’m okay with less episodes but good quality. Too many k dramas drag with a thin plot. 

 

Yes KJS did study abroad & if you watch his previous drama 20th century Boy & Girl ( he & female lead’s chemie was hot ! And you’ll fall in love with his character there ), he speaks a lot of English. He and Ha Seok Jin also did a travel show together & he was really fluent .
