[Drama 2019] Extraordinary You / Suddenly One Day, 어쩌다 발견한 하루 - 2019 MBC Drama of the Year

Recommended Posts

So no Ju Da, Baek Kyung , and Do Hwa in the end. Whats the point of showing Nam ju in the new story when they didn't show the others. I'm sure that this is a new Manwha in the end but whats the point of flipping everyones role from side to main and main to side characters if they didn't do it for the rest. Whats the point of leaving those 3 main characters out. I remembered there was a video online showing Haru and Baek Kyung filming their final scenes like a couple days ago with which i assumed baek kyung would appear at least but sadly he didnt in the ending

@Jillia fighting! :lol: I haven’t watched the episode yet either. However, I read the spoilers and I couldn’t help thinking of that famous quote from The Last of the Mohicans that reminds me so much of Haru’s promise to Danoh:

Spoiler

You be strong, you survive... You stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you.

Jinmichae serving:

sweets from "Trumpet Creeper" to Ha Ru and Kyung though. :bawling:

We could've had it all if they had done Kyung's change earlier. Just imagine... Ha Ru and Kyung, not really being friends but somewhat being friends. Geez...

Me after watching the last episode:

I'm a bawling mess right now. I have a lot of feelings to deal with and I will write my thoughts tomorrow because it's in the midst of the night right now and I need to sleep. But all I can say: perfection. Final thoughts tomorrow (or today since it's already past midnight).

I actually don't know how to feel about the last two episodes... maybe even the last four episodes or so. There were really really good moments and very beautiful scenes, heavy with emotions and good acting...but there were also so many filler scenes and especially so many repetitive ones ... This drama should definitely have been longer and balanced by focusing on the other characters without the repetitiveness that I felt watching DanHaru. Don't get me wrong, I SHIP IT! and I get that the writer of the drama wants to highlight the fact that no matter how many times they get separated, they will always find their way to each other again...but...but...at some point everything felt as a deja vu and it had a lesser impact on me. 

 

I wish I saw less of Kyung torturing Danoh and more of him being conflicted and growing up...l don't care about Namju but I feel so bad for him being such an uninteresting character, I want to know who he is beyound what the writer of the manhwa made him to be...he should have become selfaware! I wanted more Juda, she was soooo interesting and then how she just chose the easy way out, I felt a bit bitter about it but it still is a very interesting choice .... I wish I saw more Dohwa, I love him the most in this drama because he felt consistant and he was the sweetest bests boy till the end. More SaeMi and Suchul and I wished she would apologize for her behavior..cuz she was quite horrible to Joda no?.. more of the other minor characters ... they had so much potential!!!

 

I keep reading posts here and there written by people that are disappointed or angry and I be like "ouch! nothing but the truth!"

 

Then I read posts written by people that are happy and completely satisfied and I be like "right! that's true!"

 

Maybe I need to watch the episodes again to make a proper opinion but surely I enjoyed the the first half of the drama the most because it was so THRILLING. And because of that this drama remains really good even if I don't know how to feel about its second half.

It's giving me a headache as well! I wonder if Kyung got his own manhwa, a thriller perhaps haha?! and if Juda and DoHwa are the leads of a romcom manhwa as well...flowers for you maybe?! So by only showing Namju, the writer is highlighting that she is done with him. He got his happy ending in Secret so now he is an extra that is semi significant or even insignificant (a bit too noticeable tho?!). So maybe she isn't done yet with the other three and she is keeping them for her future manhwas? As for DanHaru she recycled them ASAP in this new manhwa as nameless extras because she probably got tired of them messing up her stories every time lol so she is giving them full free will to spend time with each other and leave her alone xD Idk the plot of this drama will forever be as interesting as confusing...

@kawaiibooty yeah I agree the second half dragged a bit and got repetitive.  BK’s redemption arc could’ve come sooner.  And JD... why did the writer regress her character in the last episode?  I would’ve been happy for her to be friends with DH, the poor boy had already moved on (and seemed happy)...why did she string him on again with the “I will date you on alternate days”?  :blink:  That didn’t make sense.

 

Cryptic BK’s brother seemed only there as a consolation for BK so he wouldn’t be alone in the end...  BK’s brother was unnecessary in the whole scheme of things.  Initially I thought he would be the writer’s alter ego drawn in but it doesn’t look like it.

 

I really wanted to know the full story of TC.  Did it just end with HR wandering around broken hearted?  JMC what happened to him in that comic?  Or BK?  Or the whole political plot?  Did BK kill JMC in the end too?  Why did BK’s brother say he was affectionate and nice (?) before?  Where did that come from?  

 

I wish they made the message of the drama clearer.  Heidegger reference in the end says they intended the drama to be an existential discussion.  But you have to really dig deep to find it.  It was definitely an entertaining watch.  I am glad to have discovered the new actors/actresses.  I look forward to seeing them in future projects.

@kawaiibooty, I see the repetition of separation and memory loss for Danoh and Haru as the consequence of their constant rebellion against their creator and his story. While they wanted the freedom to live their lives and choose their own fate, that was all outside the writer’s will and therefore they had to pay a price in one way or another considering that the writer is omnipotent as only a creator can be with his creation. I understand that even 

Spoiler

in the end the writer’s will prevailed but he showed mercy to Danoh and Haru by leaving them to their own “boundless” fate. I say that’s a win.

I am curious about the book Haru left at the library, Duino Elegies.

 

Spoiler

DO seemed to be reading the First Elegy: "The Cry" (https://www.poetryintranslation.com/PITBR/German/Rilke.php#anchor_Toc509812215). The poem had a reference to a woman named Gaspara Stampa (1523-1554). According to the notes:

 

Quote

Famous for her intense love for the young Lord of Treviso, Collaltino, which he was ultimately unable to return. She wrote some two hundred sonnets telling the story of her love for him, dying at the age of thirty-one. She was for Rilke a ‘type’ of unrequited love.

Ok I am not certain whether DO was indeed reading the First Elegy. But this line really seemed to fit what was happening :tears:

Quote

of a darkened sobbing. Ah, who then can
we make use of? Not Angels: not men,
and the resourceful creatures see clearly
that we are not really at home
in the interpreted world. Perhaps there remains
some tree on a slope, that we can see
again each day: there remains to us yesterday’s street,

and the thinned-out loyalty of a habit
that liked us, and so stayed, and never departed

TBH, I am disappointed to see that Ju Da, Baek Kyung and Do Hwa were missing from the ending.

 

I would rather they don't show any of the recurring characters if they are gonna just show Nam Joo.

On November 21, MBC's Wed-Thurs romantic comedy series 'Extraordinary You' came to an end with a total of 32 episodes. 

 

In light of the drama's finale, lead actress Kim Hye Yoon relayed a message of thanks via her label, SidusHQ. Kim Hye Yoon shared, "I was so happy to be able to live as the character Eun Dan Oh for the past 6 months, and I had so much fun filming with actors my age. We began filming in early summer and wrapped up when we could feel the first signs of winter. I learned so much during that time, and felt that I should work harder as an actress. I feel that I will always think of this production whenever summer rolls around again. Thank you to the viewers who loved 'Extraordinary You' and Dan Oh."

The drama's lead actor, SF9's Rowoon, also shared a thankful post via his Instagram, in light of the final episode broadcast. Rowoon said, "My beloved Haru, I hope he will be remembered in all of your hearts for a very long time. To all of the cast and crew members, the actors, and the staff who worked so hard behind the scenes, I was so happy these past 6 months~ 'Extraordinary You', the end (emoji)." He also included heartwarming photos from the cast's final filming set. 

 

Additionally, through his label FNC Entertainment, Rowoon commented, "When I first started filming, I was very anxious and not very confident in myself, because the character was difficult. However, as the episodes went on, I was so happy to see myself acting and speaking more like Haru. I began to dress, talk, and act like Haru, reading the script like Haru, and he began to form concrete shape. It was a production where I put in so much effort to become the real Haru. I'm thankful that viewers saw this effort kindly... I hope that this drama will linger as a lasting impression in the hearts of viewers, as much as it will linger with me. I was so happy to live as Haru, and thank you so much to those who loved him."

I don't know my exact feeling now, I was sad, scared, anxious, relief, it's too much. Around episode 13-14 (26-28), actually I'm quite worried with the plot, it's little bit disappointing to be honest lol.

But damnn, last night episode just so beautiful. It's so beautiful until I hate myself for liking bittersweet story of our couple. I cried like a river:tears: And actually it's not really me...

Spoiler

I cried when Haru dissapear. It's so SCARY. I cried at Kyung's last scene, that heartbreaking-peaceful face-like expression is just on point and that tennis ball. Somehow, him and Haru despite the tension, have so many memories together. So I think, a little affection has grown up. And the third one, when Dan Oh found Haru's gift and then Dan Oh realized that Secret Manhwa world will be vanished. Once again, it's so scary.

There are a lot of thought that I want to tell you guys, but my English is just...ough

I know this drama isn't perfect but one thing I'm really sure...this is one of best dramas in my life.

Thank you so much for all the discussions here, I enjoy it so much!!!

So I just woke up and I barely slept. I need coffee first and then I will sit down to write down my thoughts. I hope not everyone leaves right away and will take a look and post some more because there is a lot to talk about. :D I know some might not be completely satisfied and other's liked the ending. Again my post will come later today. But until then...

Havin' mixed feelings over the finale^_^

 

The ending, as is the case in most K-Dramas was incredibly rushed:P so very disappointed that Kyung, Do Hwa, Ju Da, Dried Squid & Soo Hyang were excluded from the finale.. :wacko: 

 

Dan Oh looked soo..prettyyy with longer hair. 

I hope to see Hye Yoon star in another drama with Jae Wook someday~ Their chemistry was f-i-r-e yo LoLB)

Nothing cracked me up more than Nam Ju's  "My Boys" in the episode.:D This has got to be his most iconic scene so far in the drama. Also I can't at his straight face whenever he utters those cringey lines. I mean this is the kind of confidence I need in my life :sweatingbullets:

 

Lee Do Hwa always speaks the truth. Also yes he is the cutest:wub:
