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


Recommended Posts

I really find it intriguing that both female leads (DO/JD) and second male leads (HR/DH) in the "writer's" webtoon (Secret/Trumpet Creeper) became self aware and had fallen instead with each other. This just shows that in the fantasy world (stage) majority of females tend to like the bad boy type as shown in sooooo many kdrama examples but in real life (shadow) females prefer the kind and loving type more. The reference to this specific drama trope is really funny and satisfying because no girl will really like someone who is always a jerk to her much more have a 10 year unrequited love.

 

As for HR killing? DO, it reminds me of something in the webtoon.

Spoiler

In the webtoon, JMC falls for someone other than the female lead. I assume she's the second female lead or an extra. Both of them are self - aware as well. But when the stage started, JMC killed the one he's in love with. He doesn't have a choice since that is the stage. He only realized it when the stage is over and he saw the girl he loved dying in his own hands. I don't know if they will do the same thing in the drama but the parallels are there. I think BK will order HR to kill DO and since it's in the stage he will follow but when the stage ended he will see DO dying at the end of his sword that's why in the scene, he is holding the blade trying to pull it away from her and that's where he also got his scar from. I also think that is the reason as to why HR suddenly appeared in Secret. He is unconsciously looking for and waiting for DO since they had a sad ending in the Trumpet Creeper and that's why the trumpet creeper flower is always resonating with him. Because it signifies his will to wait for DO forever.

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

Can I just say that thank goodness Dan Oh in "Trumpet Creeper" didn't have to live through a 10 year crush on Kyung to find out she doesn't like him/doesn't want to marry him? I love that she said it right away that the man she loves is Ha Ru and she doesn't want to be with Kyung.

 

Also, I haven't said it but I LOVED how Dan Oh ambushed Ha Ru after realizing he has been following her. Like girl got some moves with that little dagger. And Ha Ru acknowledged her skills. His pride wasn't hurt because she was able to trick him. Imagine Kyung in that moment... he would kick around market stands.

 

On another note though...:wub::wub:

And you know what is making me angry? Kyung disregarding Dan Oh's statement. Like no matter what she says he is either only hearing half of it or what's convenient for him OR he says "no, Dan Oh, you're wrong. I'M your beginning." Boy, that may be right for this dreadful manhwa you're stuck in but it's not real. His behavior reminds me so much of all the male leads in other dramas - 10 years ago and sometimes even now. Can we please leave these kind of male characters in the past?

Let us not forget the importance of BK's father in both manhwas. The father is the one who advises or forces BK to marry DO in order to increase his power/position. Then in both manhwas, the marriage is called off. Based on @Jillia's screenshot, 48967862c34421c3d301016af9a5a0f0c7ed0e9fBK's father/minister is present, when DO dies. So in my opinion, the minister is the one who actually causes DO to die by advising BK to  arrest DO and even kill her in order to weaken the king's support since they didn't choose BK's side. One possibility is that HR on the stage is forced to kill her. That's why JMC warned HR not to change the stage because calling off the engagement would lead to her death. In other words, this could mean that BK's father in Secret is also involved in DO's announced death and no one is aware of it. Maybe he decides to have DO died in surgery because he has found a new ally: NMJ's mother from that S. group. 

From the manhwa, we know that

Spoiler

LDW's brother was involved in the loss of JD's mother... so maybe the writer might have decided to use this trope in DO's life. And LDW's brother is forced to kill her... "stage", just like in Trumpet Creeper. In both cases, DO dies because of a cut and a knife/sword!

Since the brother was there, I suspect that he can remember the story from the Trumpet Creeper. That's why he kept pushing BK not to call off the engagement. Yet, the brother wasn't aware of the reasons why the engagement was called off in the first case and I am sure, he is still unaware why DO called off the engagement in Secret. He believes that he was the only one who was aware all this time.

We all think it's about the characters being aware or not aware. And changing their fates or not. But I was thinking from the beginning what if everything we see is actually part of the manhwa, of the plot itself?

 

What if the writer is actually writing Dan Oh AND Ha Ru (as the leads) the way we see them? Maybe the writer isn't so dumb after all. lol

 

i really like this theory. that would make the writer brilliant and that plot line would be much better than secret's plot line. and this would a huge inception.

I know this is a manhwa/drama and it's making fun of all the tropes but I still have this big question mark above my head. Because I don't see how marrying Dan Oh to his son could benefit Kyung's father. I get that if she was healthy and would join their family it would create a bond between their families and the business relationship between Kyung's and Dan Oh's father would lead to Dan Oh's father investing money. But in the end if she dies then what reason would her father have to keep that business relationship? It makes no sense to me. I actually makes more sense in "Trumpet Flower" that two families join in order to weaken the king aka to make it impossible for Dan Oh's father to support Jinmichae aka the king.

 

But you could definitely be right when it comes to Kyung's father that he is the puppet master behind everything.

 

EDIT:

Here the screenshot of Ha Ru and we see Kyung in the back...

I guess we will find out what the drama has planned for us. :D

 

 

Ha Ru on the other hand is 100% done with Kyung. Like he told Kyung to fix himself but Kyung keeps being obsessed with Dan Oh...

But also Rowoon is so handsome. Everytime I look at him I have "HOW!?" on my mind. :lol:

as long as it doesn't have an open ending or the type of ending where they just show the back of the hero or where the the two leads meet each other at the last second and smile at each other the end.. i'm going to be happy. i'm doing a prayer circle for the ending to be anything but these.

 

don't even get me started about rowoon and his gorgeousness. all i do is drool over him while watching this drama. he made me binge watch this drama and rewatch it and just makes my heartbeat as fast as dan oh's every time he is onscreen. 1570689780_438_5-Reasons-To-Start-Watchi

 

a perfect being honestly. 

 

 

this mv is so beautiful. all the scenes from trumpet creeper are seriously gorgeous. who else thinks haru is too handsome to be a second lead like ever?? like how?

Because it is a set-up and BK's father is still unaware. Even if killing DO doesn't benefit him in this story, it doesn't matter. The story is repeating itself and as such he is forced to give that order to LDW's brother. 

Remember that his other son believes that it is better doing nothing because he will get a happy ending. In his eyes, his father doesn't need to get aware... and this is where it is all wrong. All the misery started in the first manhwa, when the minister proposed the marriage with DO as an alliance. Either the brother doesn't care if DO dies and is more concerned about BK or he has not realized that DO was set up to die if they don't call off the engagement... Here the brother thought, the engagement would be called off by BK due to his past behavior. Yet, he had no idea about what happened in secret and in the past as well.

From my point of view, the moment the father gets aware, he could help to change the scene. Someone else dies during the surgery f. ex.

So we have two camps of thoughts.

The one's who thinks all changes will lead to unhappiness:- Jinmichae, BaekKyung, and Junhyun.

The one's who are in pursuit of happiness by the process of change:- Danoh, Haru, Dohwa.

 

But it is human choice to let the river not run it's course and build dams. I mean to say we all are in search of our own happy endings but we should not make others unhappy by doing it. But should the writer give them happiness or should they find it themselves.

 

Sorry I went off a tangent there! But after reading all these insightful discussions I could not let my thoughts let go unstated.:)

this scene is so unimaginable sexy, I almost died of a heart attack. No wonder dan oh's monitor wouldn't stop beeping. Dan Oh is really strong anyone else would have died with Haru that up close and being that soft and sexy at the same time.

 At first I thought, Haru and Dan oh were pulled towards each other because they were the leads of another story. And while my hunch wasn't a hundred percent correct. Who else thinks that these would be much better leads of trumpet creeper because I mean it was Haru who gave Danoh that trumpet creeper jewelry and he met her first even before Beak kyung, this writer is really bad at writing isn't she. or she/he must really like beak kyung's character.

Just look at these two totally lead material.

As a writer myself i always found myself drawn more towards supporting characters than main characters and i've always wanted to a write a story where the supporting character becomes the lead character and I'm glad that extraordinary you exists for this reason

 

i also always thought that jinmichae knew more than anyone else and thought he was the writer, like he was a meta character, writer who wrote themselves in the story. but now i'm like a hundred percent sure he isn't the writer.

The benefits are not tangible.  For DO’s father it was always about her happiness.  That’s why BK’s father was always on BK’s back to keep her happy at all costs.  DO is supposed to have a crush on BK for 10 years (stage set up), so her happiness is her father’s happiness.  Keep her happy, then her father would be happy and business relationship would be fine and dandy.  Even if she “dies” later on, the fact that BK kept her happy would mean DO’s father would be indebted to BK’s family because they kept her happy till she passed.  So in the eyes of BK, she’s like a shackle to him, for 10 years she’s been “smothering” him (on stage), someone he could never shake off.  Whilst I am not excusing how unkind he is to her, I can understand his frustration and annoyance.  He feels trapped and suffocated and is lashing out (understandable but not justifiable).

I know this isn’t our trumpet vine but how beautiful is this flower? It looks somewhat like the pendant. 

 

Anyway. I’m really enjoying all the discussions. Some interesting ideas. 

 

For me the most fascinating thing is how  baek kyung is a support character/lead and therefore is invested in the story playing out according to the authors original intent. Until now he has no reason to be a different, less angry, person because his shadow self is satisfied by his stage self. Now his shadow and stage are coming into conflict and he wants to change the shadow and not the stage. I think that is why he was the first to completely understand how to change the stage. Haru know instinctively but BK knows the structure. 

 

As we go along, I’m convinced more and more that DO will be the one to make the ultimate decision. Based on what we’ve seen in Trumpet Flower manhwa, I think that she put herself in the way of the sword. That when they tried to change the stage there is resulted in her death and the scar. Which makes me feel like the ending here will be bitter sweet. With DO choosing to find  Haru in the next Manhwa. With eps we have left we could do that and still have a half episode of them being adorable in the new manhwa... maybe with Haru as the lead. 

 

Because ultimately this is about freewill and as they have more and more memories of their history the more they will remember of their past. 

 

And it makes me so happy how kdrama fans on soompi sit around discussing philosophy. Bring out the popcorn! Time for Freewill 101!

 

I only wish they could make make a season 2 so that we can see new hijinks.
