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

Recommended Posts

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.

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


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.

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. :)

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.
