Recommended Posts

Sorry for coming from a distracted mind, my thoughts are all over - :lol:

 

The hugging stills ... they are wearing same outfits in the last scene right ... Ha! It means I was right ... I could be ... that Insect scene probably comes first. I hope it does!

A Man More Angelic than a Real Angel

“Did you know that he was an angel? Weren’t you scared? He’s not a human. He’s like a spirit or a monster.” 

Dan fears only three things in the world: that YS will get hurt, that she will suffer once he disappears and that she’ll learn he is not a human. It’s something he’s been struggling with from the very beginning and also one of the most important themes in a love story involving a human and a supernatural being, two people who are literally from two different worlds. Can Yeon Seo love Dan unconditionally and accept everything about him, everything he is, without wanting him to change for her?

“They are unsightly and disgusting. I’m going to burn them.” 

“It is all the same to humans whether it is an angel, monster, or pervert.” 

Dan has been afraid that YS might see him as a monster from the moment she grabbed his wings, called them disgusting and wanted to burn them. It’s one of the most defining moment of their relationships because from that moment Dan realized for the first time the divide between them and started to hide his wings, his true nature from YS, running away from her countless times whenever it rained. YS’s reaction rattled him to his core and ever since he keeps referring to himself as a monster that he thinks YS might consider him as. It’s even more heartbreaking and symbolic when we realize that the real monsters are humans and that Dan was brought up by one - his own father. Ever since Dan saved YS with his wings he’s been hiding them from her, together with his true self. I really want to see YS touching and caressing Dan’s wings and embracing him, asking him to forgive her that she ever said that and telling him that they are beautiful and that she loves them and everything about him. Hell, I needed that scene yesterday!

“How could this be? How can I not know anything about him? Where he was born, who his parents are, how he grew up, what he dreamed of becoming.” 

In a way, Dan has been keeping a part of himself away from YS and she’s finally starting to realize how much she doesn’t know about him. It’s appropriate that she realizes only now as she needed to grow up and mature because until recently she only thought about herself, her suffering, her pain,… And that’s exactly what love does to a person - YS’s love for Dan finally made her think more about him than about herself. It genuinely pains her that she knows so little about him, even more so because he knows and notices literally everything about her - her likes and dislikes, her fears and worries,…

“Yes, I don’t know anything about him. I realized that even more after he left. But I know this for sure. Dan isn’t a sly guy who deceives people. I’ve never seen someone who was…as transparent as he was.”

Yet, she KNOWS HIM, THE REAL HIM. She might not know all the facts but she knows the one thing that matter - his heart. It’s so poignant when YS, who used to doubt and suspect everyone, defends Dan and his character, trusting him unconditionally without knowing anything about him. Because just like Dan sees right through her, she sees right through him. Now it’s Dan’s turn to trust in Yeon Seo and her love for him and show her his true self.

OTP are always together. :wub:

 

 

You know what I want? 

 

You know I said, this show kinda gives me the vibe of cult shows like MLFTS or ItsOkThatsLove — Like how it was shown in ‘em, I want OTP to go away for few days and have some intimate moments! :wub:

New viewer of the drama here - just finished watching ep 1- 8. I find ep 8 more interesting and captured my interest in the drama (yes, it took a bit longer to grow on the drama).

 

I didnt know who the actor Kim Dan was, until i read about him yesterday - and he was the actor who acted as the double for the Emperor in Emperor: Owner of the Mask, and I remembered that i was so annoyed with his character back then :D It took a while for me to recognise him.

 

Anyways, basically, I thought ep 8 was the best, where Kim Dan realised his old sad identity. I couldnt understand why  Kang Ji Woo (?aka Lee Dong Gun), the angel is still alive? To let him live due to 'them' mistakenly killing his girlfriend 15 years ago? Can't wait to see the next episodes :)

This little girl is so freaking cute :wub:

 

 

This was cute. The little 5 year old girl I watch all the time is also totally into ballet. On Friday night, I was playing music from Swan Lake and Giselle, and she was dancing and twirling around. I'll have to get a video of it next time cuz her eyes and face were intense, man. Reminded me of our beautiful ballerina YS. 

 

@briseis Your latest post legit brought tears to my eyes. Esp the part about wanting to see YS caress Angel Dan's wings and tell him that she loves every part of him. Omg the feeeeels. If that doesn't happen now I'll be so disappointed! 

 

I'm telling you, this show has the most FMVs I've ever seen for any show. And I absolutely love it! I've been listening to every sad romantic song I know and thinking 'Boy this song would go great in a FMV for ALML....'

I was leaving living a blissful state, not aware of this part and then it happened! :bawling:  

Why writer why? :heartbreak:

He's very annoying here: Yeon Seo can bring him no good on any level, professional or romantic. He should stay away from her.

 

However as a usual, he has strong reasons and good intentions: Dan is an angel and can't escape his condition. Maybe he thinks Dan is as innocent as he used to be and will trust the angels to not hurt her, playing with her life. In Kang Woo's head,  it's most likely if he doesn't force Dan to leave, Yeon Seo might end up dead. He's right: that's a real threat, not only a sincere fear on his side.

I don't know how much his feelings are mixed with fear: it seems to me too early for someone as reluctant as him to admit his feelings  to already be talking about love and happiness. Their dance scene was intense but it was only one scene.

However the writer has turned upside down Yeon's Seo's personality in one week so everything is possible.:tears:      

 

 

 

Agree that he has good intentions but with bad actions, and his judgment may be clouded by his emotions. The fact that he sees Seol Hee in Yeon Seo or that he momentarily forgets that she is Yeon Seo and not his first love. Also add to the fact that he knows what could happen if Dan stays and their relationship develops because he'd been there. That if it happens, his goal,whatever it is that he is intending to accomplish here, and all his efforts will be for naught. And at this point, his intent is still unclear to me. 

 

His reluctance, in a way, says a lot about his fears. But whether it is a fear of straying from his goals, or falling hard for YS or betraying his first love, is still a blur. He seems to be invulnerable but deep inside, its probably taking all his might to appear so.

I always look forward to your insightful posts! Please keep 'em coming! Ah, the beauty of true love. I especially love the part where YS realizes how little she knows about Dan. And how this fact pains her.  This isn't only very realistic, it's very relatable. I love love love everything about this post! :love:

 

EDIT: so hard to respond through my phone, idk why my reply got posted right away. LOL

It's  a good discussion: your answer reflects well the ambiguity of the character and the intentions of the writer, which is apparently to leave us in doubt as long as possible about his nature and his goals.    

 

Good intentions, bad actions and clouded (moderately) by his emotions, that's definitively my kind of hero! :w00t:

 I still  can't tell if the merging of the two women in his head is a good or a bad thing: so far it did a lot of good to Yeon Seo. 

I agree it's deceiving but it had a positive influence on Yeon Seo: she  thanked him for believing in her and make her dance when she didn't believe in herself. She wouldn't be in the ballet company without him. Seems to me that the romance is the real and only problem (that's why i removed from my previous post the word professional). So far the professional bond works well, the romance doesn't. Maybe all will collapse  in the future.

 

He's indeed non benevolent: he has selfish goals as you underlined, that my love for the character and LDG make me too often forget.:sweatingbullets:  

 

The part that i put in bold is just perfect: there's indeed a conflict inside him between how he appears to be and how he is, and i can't wait for the writer to start diving in it. I'm excited because it should be compelling.

So does this mean that Dan will be leaving LYS and coming back as Yoo Seong Woo? Or he's going to complete his mission?

I don't know just the title stating that he will be facing difficult choices hurt me that he will be leaving her. I hope he doesn't vanish and it's a test for him from up there..? 

Whatever the case is, let Dan get his happiness for once from all the suffering he had as a kid and as an angel who can't fall in love with a human.

 

@turtle0217 I don't know and we'll have to see tomorrow with regards to the decision he makes after finding out his past.

So i vote for the writer to resurrect Seol Hee: why can't she come back on earth as an angel if Dan could? Surely she wanted too to be a guardian angel to the person she loved and she married?:tears:

 Or SH comes back to take JKW back with her to hereafter to live happy ever after together, ending his immortality. A bit similar to the second lead of Goblin :lol: this way he gets his happy ending after all.B)

@mylovekge I totally agree with you, JKW needs to get lost himself and stop speaking for YS. :angry:

 

P.s. Sorry @titania1000 :pensive: 

 

Thank you for being so kind!

But i'm not sad: the shippers biais is strong  in the forum and doesn't match what happens in the drama.

90% of the time the reproaches made to Kang Woo can applied to Dan but since he's the main lead and the romantic interest of the heroine, his negative attitudes, and i have a very long list of them, are dismissed. 

That's the game here. 

 

 I wish to see more Kang Woo fans here: i noticed his supporters are mostly outside this thread, people who even enjoy LDG and SHS chemistry and hope to see them as leads in a  romance again.

I feel like most of people who could support him feel discouraged because he's the second lead. They might fear if he doesn't get the girl, it won't be enjoyable to be on his side. For me, it's not true, independently of his endgame: alone or with in peace/love, i feel that his character has been far more compelling,  and better written  and acted than Dan (sorry for KMS fans!).

He's the biggest strength of the drama, as much as the main romance, which for me  can't hold alone the drama.

 

I won't lie it's a little stressfull to not know how far the writer will go with his character, but the journey is exciting so far.
