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


Recommended Posts

I think it was evident from get go that Haru came from that Joseon Manhwa Flower and Eun Dan Oh was there, possibly his love interest who died or something....So, Kyung is self aware and is trying to console Dan Oh in his smug "I don't care but here is your strawberry milk way" ......Boy he does like her

It doesn't matter if the manhwa world is real or not. The characters are the ones who turn their world into reality.   In this drama it seems that on the one hand the real writer is using D

I think HR killed DO but it was not deliberate and he grabbed the sword with his left hand to stop it but it was too late. But the scene doesn’t look like a sword fight. It starts off with guards surr

OMG! Haru is using that comic book to basically track and stalk Dan Oh, isn’t he?! The dress-up scene with SM clearly took place on the stage so Haru must have read the whole thing and rushed to the cinema because it’s obvious he is deliberately doing everything SM told Dan Oh to do with BY and more, enjoying every single second of it. He simply couldn’t bear if she did something like that with her “fiancé”. The boy isn’t as hapless and innocent as he originally seemed and I’m all for it.

“Kyung was acting a bit weird.”

At first, I found Haru’s explanation strange, considering that standing DO up is exactly something you would expect BY to do; however, then I realized that Haru didn’t come because he thought BY wouldn’t show up but because he was afraid he would. He must have noticed all those strange questions and reactions from BY and suspected that BY might be gaining his self-awareness.

On a side note, I dig that they are watching Spiderman which is also a live-action adaptation of a comic, just like Extraordinary You.

Imagine guys if Dan Oh and Baek Kyung were actually the main couple of this drama having to fight something like "a stage" were they hate each other while on shadow they like one another,imagine all the makjang and stuff going on while being forced to switch between those two...I confess i would totally watch an alternate drama with that plot for the fun:joy:

 

I agree, it could be a romantic comedy with various self-contradictions to understand the true feelings between the stage or the shadow

The latest episode almost confirmed the theory that Haru used to be a character from a previous historical webtoon and that he kept his personality traits in Secret. Furthermore, it appears that that some objects had been transferred as well - be it the antique ornament, flowers,… The comic “Flower” has that very same flower on its cover and now we can see its contents, including historical buildings and men with swords (that scar made me always think about Haru getting hurt after catching a sword or a dagger in his hand which is a trope you see often in sageuk); and one of the man is saying exactly the same line Haru told JMC. Did he already have the same identity issues in the previous comic or did his previous storyline include a birth secret?

It’ll be interesting to learn who Haru used to be because you only have to look at him to realize he is a male lead material, something even Do Hwa noted when he first met him. Haru is tall and muscular, with insane physicality and reflexes. He saved DO several times, easily dodged the ball from BY, defeated BY in tennis and threw him into the swimming pool without any problems. On the other hand, he has amazing artistic talents which would suggest an educated warrior with noble blood, perhaps.

What comic flower? I came here to ask about a preview for the end of 12 because there wasn’t one in case anyone had a link and then I saw someone mention a historical comic flower: is it real, or was it mentioned in the show?

"Extraordinary You" made me come back to the group soompi. Wow this drama is very interesting (yesterday I lost a bit of interest in Korean dramas because I didn't find anything interesting to follow), this month is like the revival of Korean Drama because there are so many interesting dramas to follow.

Alright this drama makes my feelings separate. While watching the drama, Baek Kyung stole my focus. I understand people who hate Kyung, because on stage he is very rude to others and in his shadow he starts to waver with his identity. But let's understand Kyung's character which is actually very sad. Since childhood, Kyung has to be engaged with a sick girl, his father is very greedy, his stepmother is very cruel, his step sister likes his fiance, and her biological mother dies of illness. Maybe that's why he always ready to be an ambulance and nurse when Dan Oh was sick, because basically Kyung was afraid of being alone and no one loved him. But he doesn't have people who understand his conflict, so he makes Dan Oh his emotional place

But when I'm in this group, Dan Oh and Haru's relationship really stole my attention, with the possibility of them being connected to other comics. And dried squid that is not much noticed in the drama, actually holds a lot of code that can be read as a hint of the drama's storyline

Do Hwa deserves everything - don't fight me!:wub:

 

I agree but not that punch given by Namjoo to his lips.

 

But if he did not get that punch in the lips Haru would not have been jealous!

 

 

@leeminhosny Yes Haru swam like a mermaid! I loved that slowed down scene in the water!! I need to find a gif of him diving through the water. He was like a majestic being in underwater!!

Spoiler

little doubt. Was it Rowoon or a body double though?!!

What is the deal with dried squid? Is he the writer?

Here is the preview for 13-14 ep

Dried Squid/JinMichae was reading another manhwa named  Flower! I don't think he is the writer. JinMichae was in Flower manhwa.

The current manhwa being  enacted right now in the series is "Secret' Manhwa.

 

I did not read the manhwa's but based on my deductions I assume he is antagonistic towards Haru and want's the story of Danoh to unfold until her death. Maybe he wants to follow her to the next manhwa when she gets reincarnated in that one.

 

Hope this helped however brief it was.:D

She sounded like she was saying Lee Taeri. Found out Lee Tae-ri previous name was Lee Minho before he legally changed it!

Also found out that BK being thrown into the pool was a similar scene in Heirs. I never watched that series coz I started knowing about kpop and kdrama until 2011!lol

Hi guys I am new to this forum. I have been a silent reader of soompi forum but this drama urged me to join. I don't like school romance much cuz I find them too cheesy. I like school dramas as long as they are not heavy on romance like School 2015 and Moments of 18. I stumbled upon this drama and found the premise interesting so watched first 2 episodes and I was completely hooked. It was fun seeing Dan Oh and Do Hwa making fun of JD and NJ's typical but cringe worthy romantic moments.:lol:

The extraness of Eun Dan Oh's character can easily make her annoying but Kim Hye Yoon made her so loveable. It's my first time seeing Rowoon and he is very handsome as Haru and their scenes together are so heart fluttering :wub:. I am also watching Search WWW right now and I must say Lee Jae Wook is really a good actor. I don't see Seol Ji Hwan (his character name) in BK nor BK in SJH. Don't know why but for some reason his smile reminds me of Park Bo Gum.

As for Haru and DO's past. I think DO was engaged or married to someone else (maybe BK) or they were from different social class so they were not meant to be together and Haru tried to change that but instead something bad happened. 

English is not my first language so please be understanding.

Watched with subs!!!

 

1- It looks like several of the other extras are starting to become aware... any thoughts that it is only extras who can become aware? There are several scenes with extras looking confused/surprised (when BK "confessed"; when BK and Haru had their confrontation)

 

2- Are they giving BK a reason to pretend like he didn't like DO? (that he pushes her away because his mum died from sickness so he never wants to get close to people who might die?... fairly classic trope)... But it in no way makes him a good guy... and I really can't stand his character. 

 

3- Speaking of tropes! urgh. loving them here so much. very well done and often subverted, even the love lines.

 

4- yes! totally agree. I think he has always been aware of his feelings for DO but they have become stronger as it goes along... the bit on the bench did me in. But the movie theatre scene was the best... so many memories of being a teen and hyper aware of your date in a dark theatre :D

when he got a nametag it was almost like he was able to be a real character who starts liking and disliking things

 

5- I am going to admit that I've always felt a bit sorry for Jinmichae... I think he genuinely wants the best for the manhwa (not necessarily the characters)... when he said that everything had returned to what it was my heart broke a bit. Clearly whatever ending Flower had is really tragic and he wants to prevent that. He seems lonely. I loved at the beginning when he said that it took DO a much faster to figure it out, as if she always does. His relationship with Haru is clearly complicated and he cares for him. When he said "you would disappear" I interpreted that as who Haru really is. That who everyone is on stage isn't who they really are. With Haru's new role in the manhwa, he is now just another character. 

 

6- I think he could still know all those things and be a body guard / military official in a sageuk (plus fusion etc)

I wonder if that wouldn't mean is rather a noble man in the other drama than a bodyguard?

 

7- This was hilarious! I've really been missing him--and occasionally rewatch METS for the cute he brought in the beginning... I wonder why he hasn't gotten more roles? (he has always been my favourite of the Lee Minhos)

Final thought... So many of the guys in this drama are "armpit sniffers" (guys where the girl is so much short that she only(barely)  comes up to his armpit... not gross if they bathe regularly! come one! hehehe... I am also dying to see how they manage the DO Haru kiss... even sitting down she is so much short than him. :D
