Hahahaha... these two cuties really. I wonder though why they would try to hide their feelings in front of Do Hwa. He is their biggest shipper. Plus Ha Ru asking Dan Oh if he needs to practice flirtin

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

I still can't believe the writer isn't original at all with the names of her character. Like with Dan Oh, the Y3's names are even less original. :lol:Yang Il, Yang Ii, Yang Sam aka Yang 1, Yang 2, Yang 3. I just can't with this writer.

 

@taskdramafanatic @tinymel

But what if it's true and this is all the plan by the writer, not just what happens on stage but also in the shadow? Then from the beginning Dan Oh and Ha Ru were the leads. And I mean for us: Dan Oh, Ha Ru and Kyung are actually the leads (in the drama) but what if they are in the manhwa as well? Just as I theorized before... that it's not about being aware or not but everything is just part of the plot. Basically the manhwa writer writing a big parody on all the tropes and clichés, making us think he/she is completey unoriginal but in the end it's all his/her plot. :lol:

 

On another note, I found these fanmade posters - with the parallels between "Secret" and "Trumpet Creeper". :wub::wub:

I've read that there are many not so nice comments toward KHY because of her interactions with Rowoon - they're like BFFs but now have to avoid interacting a lot because of those comments. Do you know whether it's true? Please reply in spoiler tags. Thanks. :)

I don't know about KHH but last week somebody gave problem to Rowoon:tears: bad things wrote about him ,really his heart has broken , :tears: he is so sad and so fandom was so sad last week :tears:because Rowoon has shot for 6 months and he couldn't join his group events, but I think (maybe) they are jealous of kiss scene and BTS, Rowoon is so warm to KHH but I know Rowoon is so warm to everyone, he has easygoing character , my baby only guilt he is so warm:wub: I hope they will forget this bad people

There are always weird people in every fandom. It's important that we don't give either of them a hard time. They should just enjoy filming and make a good time. And hopefully having them reunited in another project. :D Thank you for replying!

They say trouble misfortune comes in threes! Like most folk stories have~ three witches , three bears , three piglets, three princesses, three wishes, so on and so forth!

Also as in Secret manhwa has A3 ,D3, Y3!!! :lol:

So if @Jillia is correct this drama is the third manhwa!

They also say  three is considered good luck. In Chinese cultures, the number three is considered good luck because the pronunciation is similar to the word for ‘alive.’  So third times the charm and Danoh and Haru will successfully change the story-line!!! But it was all along what the writer was writing!!!:w00t::lol::D

@tinymel @angelbeast90 Actually, I perceive some similarities between the fictional writer of the manhwas and gods. The writer is not seen in the dramas just like the deities, yet the characters feel his presence (storyboards, the dreams, the objects flying around, the magical appearance of the ornament etc.).

That's why believers believe in miracles. People believing in god/gods think that people's destiny is already determined. Only gods / God know what will happen in the future etc. On the other hand, this drama really outlines that despite being forced to follow the orders on stage, the aware characters are trying to move around this which indicates that free will is what matters in the end.

HR and DO have still some free room where they can choose what they want. No matter how life  is determined or not by god, the individual is still free to do what he wants. HR is the best example... he had to struggle in order to change the stage and they did succeed. In other words, no matter how restricted their life is, free will is the most important thing in the world.

I know this drama isn't long enough and it's focused on the young cast. But I really can't imagine that the adults - at least one of them - isn't aware. I think there is so much that could be explored in this world. But not enough time left for that. But I think Dan Oh's father would do anything to change her fate. But also it was so sweet when they swore they would meet in the next life again. :bawling:

Hahahahah... I think the manhwa writer is the subject of the parody of the drama writer! (I haven't read the actual manhwa so don't know how it works there). 

 

While the idea that the manhwa writer is controlling the shadow is really interesting, it--I feel--over complicates the drama because we have no other knowledge of the writer in the drama (which I'm pleased about because I like when dramas have a strong core of not too many characters). I do like the idea that the writer's set ups influence the shadow though--as if they cannot really get rid of their fundamental set up:

 

DO-- to live and change her fate (dying in Secret; being used as a pawn in TF)

Haru-- to go from being invisible(he is meant to be a shadow guard) to protecting DO 

BK-- to use DO for his own selfish needs and only begin to care when his toy is taken away

Squid-- to feel powerless against the world / know he is a puppet

DH-- to love the girl and never be able to express it except in the shadows

JD-- to struggle against her powerless set up and only be able to stand up for herself in the shadows

 

The writer (drama not manhwa) is being soooo freaking clever with these characters though. Even on the stage DO knows that her illness is what prevents her character from being totally happy. Haru knows stage and shadow that he can change the world but that his actions have serious consequences. etc etc...

 

@bebebisous33 YES!

I mean in the end it's so much more fun that the drama writer is actually making fun of the manhwa writer. Like I'm here for it. Just plot-wise it would be a nice/interesting twist. :D But yes, there is definitely not enough time for that. Plus I like to see EY as a parody of all the bad writing in kdramaland.

@bebebisous33 Yes! Danoh must be a prophet coz she sees the storyboard! Also now I understand why the writer will feel sorry towards Danoh: a spoiler I read from this thread said writer feels Danoh should have a better story or something , along those lines.

 

 

EDIT: Happy 100th page!!

hmm if haru and dan oh fell inlove in the shadows in trumpet creeper then how does kyung know about it? so even tc kyung was self aware since he was able to pinpoint that haru likes dan oh during that time which stopped haru from moving during the flashback 

 

it makes me wonder whether it was kyung who attempted to change the stage in trumpet creeper hence bringing the tragedy since he was able to understand how the changing of stage works, like he changed something up to make haru suffer

Good point! I believe he will become aware as well at some point, maybe also because Ha Ru is trying to change things in "Trumpet Creeper"? He did stop Kyung for example by holding him back. So this will most likely lead to Kyung becoming aware. Just like it did in "Secret".

I rewatched the first four episodes last night and with more knowledge of the story and characters now, I can appreciate the importance of some things I missed on first viewing. 
 

For instance, during the scene on the stairs where Haru first changed Danoh’s stage, since she was supposed to break her leg (can the writer stop being cruel to Danoh), I noticed that even though Danoh didn’t seem to see Haru’s face while he was descending the stairs pass her, her heart immediately started beating fast setting off her heart monitor. (The blinding light that accompanied his descent makes me think she really didn’t see his face) However, since her rapid heart beat set off her heart monitor, she becomes cognizant of him and turns to look at his descending back and began to follow him down the stairs as though mesmerized/unconsciously drawn to him and the stage continues in a different sequence but ultimately end with Danoh still getting knocked down the stairs by Juda but this time Haru is there to break her fall by her landing on his back. 
 

Although Haru cannot see the future, the scene gave me the impression that he was unconsciously there to protect Danoh. It’s further reinforced later when Danoh was playing dodgeball (in order to find her mystery guy) and sure enough he emerges to protect her like she planned. I like that although Haru only starts becoming a “living” character around the field trip story arc, he was drawing Danoh and protecting Danoh even before they started interacting. It makes me appreciate the connection between their Trumpet Creeper incarnation and Secret because obviously Haru was drawn to Danoh in Secret even before she found him and began to build a relationship with him in Secret. No wonder he thinks of her as his beginning which can arguably be traced back to his love for her in Trumpet Creeper.

@celebrianna

Yes, I liked it a lot. When we got Ha Ru's point of view and we found out even before that he is already aware, even before Dan Oh became aware, I thought it was interesting that somehow he decided to interfere in the stairways scene. So it was either because he read the manhwa and knew it would happen OR - and since we know he is Dan Oh's protector - it was a natural reaction to stop Dan Oh from falling down the stairs and eventually breaking her leg.

 

But then even though it might've been his protective role which lead to him interfering, I actually think it was a conscious decision to change the stage. Because in Dan Oh's vision, she doesn't see a boy aka Ha Ru passing by her. So, I really think he did read the manhwa and maybe this stage was already drawn, so he knew it would happen.

Also, I adore those little moments Ha Ru saw her before, e.g. in the library and in art class. :wub: But also there was one moment I adore the most and it also happened in the library - before the stairways scene. Dan Oh has been reading books and is carrying a tower of books (the pile is literally half her size :lol:) back to shelves. Two students collide with her and a couple books drop to the floor. Ha Ru picks them up and puts them back. Dan Oh notices the scar and looks after him. It was not the first time for him to have seen her and probably to interact with her but it was her first time consciously noticing Ha Ru - even without a face. :D Plus I'm sure Ha Ru took this as a chance to actually interact with her again.

@Jillia, yes I definitely remembered the scene in the library where some of her books fell over and he retrieved them for her and she noticed the scar on his hand. The reason why I thought Haru was “unconsciously” drawn to Danoh and wanted to protect her is because they hadn’t really interacted much. However, in a later episode when she wanted him to intervene when she was forced by the stage to go into the sea water to find the item that Kyung flung into the water, Haru just watched and didn’t intervene or attempt to intervene like she had requested of him. During that time Haru behaved almost like he was an alien in their world. However, I do need to rewatch that episode that shows Haru’s point of view to understand his introductory experience in Secret better.
