Is it just me or is everyone else becoming just a little bit tired of Ha-Ru's perfection?  He sets nigh impossible standards of appearance, kindness and consideration.  How can us mortal men compete with that when it comes to our women.  I think in the next manhwa, Ha-Ru should be a 40+ year old balding man with a beer belly.

The question is if those standards are too high or should be the norm.

 

I mean for a character he could've more edges. Some would say him desperately trying to change the stage is a flaw. But I think in the way he treats Dan Oh... or for that matter Do Hwa Joo Da, I think it should be a given. Same goes the other way around as well of course. :D

 

But I don't think men need to be like him or Do Hwa, just treat women with respect and not like objects and it's a win-win situation.

For me Do Hwa is the real deal....Haru is perfect in an almost outworldly manner....not complaining, mere observations....maybe a handful people in this world could be that way....Do Hwa is everything I would want in a friend or a boyfriend

Do Hwa is just... *sigh* I'm glad I got him in the quiz. Anybody but Nam Joo or Kyung is a win-win for me. :wub:

I agree.  Treating everyone with dignity and respect should be a given.  When it comes to my wife, I try my best to be considerate and loving to her.  As we all know, sometimes life can throw us some serious obstacles and sometimes we get on each others nerves.  So sometimes we do not treat people as well as we ought.  Just try your best and always remember to be honestly sorry and express that sorrow when you do make a mistake.

 

In any event, I always prefer characters like Ha-Ru over "tsundere" characters like Kyung.  I just think that they ought to make Ha-Ru look more realistic like they did to Chris Hemsworth

Hahaha... this is making me laugh but you're right of course. Not everyone (if anyone) looks like Ha Ru. And in the end it's important the man has a good personality. But would Dan Oh love Ha Ru if he didn't have the typical k-drama look? Probably. Anyways it definitely would be funny if they woke up in a manhwa in which Ha Ru looks like a middle-aged bald man. :lol:

True every men should treat women especially the one they love with respect and gentleness. Though there are still some girls who like 'bad boys' and I was also one of them. :ph34r: I had the fantasy that I will change them with my love. But as time passed by I realised that life is already difficult and I don't want any man even if he is my love to constantly mistreat me and put me down. That's the reason why I never watched BOF despite its hype and skipped many popular dramas. When I was taking the soompi quiz I was thinking again and again that anyone is fine as long as its not Nam Joo amd Baek Kyung and fortunately I got dream guy Haru :wub:

Just found out that there is a crowdfunding going on to release the full OST for Extraordinary You including the song AND score. And many extras as well. :D

 

It's unclear though if the OST will be only available for those who support the crowdfunding or if there will be a release for international fans as well. I asked on twitter and I'm waiting for an reply. In the tweet you can find the link to the crowdfunding site. :)

 

EDIT:

 

Read through the conditons. Looks like the OST (just like the blu-ray) only gets produced if the goal is reached. The extras depend on the amount donated by the fan. The higher, the more extras will be send. However, so far no oversea shipping is planned. :( I hope they change their minds.

Which is why I always said his character seems otherworldly.  Like a guardian angel.  Faultless and therefore not realistic.  But he is the ideal to aspire towards.  Character growth wise he has had the least development in the drama.  DO and BK have had the most.  For those who experience angst from watching possible BK/DO scenes for the final episodes, maybe do what I do when I feel the same  :lol: I don’t watch live and read spoilers afterwards, then I fast forward scenes and only watch the ones I want to watch to save me heartache.  Works a charm.

dan oh saw she died in the story board thus she would have died in stage had haru not changed the stage. you knoe what happens when someone dies in stage they die forever, haru saved dan oh's life but it costed him to lose her in the shadow.


And if we go with this plot line, what we have seen in the drama is that the writer always gets what he/she wants in the end (if the writer planned for her to die on stage from the start, then changing the files meant she dies in the shadow in the interim but eventually will die on stage as well).  We have seen that no matter what they try to do to change the scene, they only succeed in delaying it.  The proposal scene with the ring...just moved on to another stage setting later.  So if it plays like JMC’s fate in TC (where his lover dies in the shadow first and then the stage later so he suffers twice for her “death”), then DO may well still die in Secret on the stage?  That would explain why in the Previews she’s seen to collapse and HR carries her off (unless that was a replay of the earlier episode where he took her watch band off and swapped it with SaeMi).  Does she die on the Secret stage regardless?  
 

If on the other hand, the writer never really intended for DO to die, we were all sold this idea because DO kept thinking she was and the storyboard she saw in her mind seemed to imply this...did she flatline there?  Or was it just staged so it looked like all was lost but we didn’t actually see her die/flatline in her flash forward.  I need to rewatch that to confirm.  If the writer never intended for her to die on the stage and DO was just preempting it because she kept getting negative messages from her doctor, then her shadow death was unnecessary because the writer intended for her to survive and get better from the surgery.

 

It all hinges on what the writer wanted for DO from the start.

I hope you don’t mean that the way Haru treats Danoh is otherworldly. I know men who treat their wives very well and it’s because of their “beliefs” about how a man should love his wife.

 

Indeed Haru and Danoh get along well so they hardly have conflict but when they did, I really don’t see the way Haru dealt with it as unrealistic. Do Hwa also treats Joo Doo well but since he doesn’t get the girl we see less of it. Does that make him perfect or otherworldly too? The thing about Haru and Do Hwa is that they “don’t” have the emotional maturity of a five year old child like the other two guys. They don’t pick on (bully) the girl they like but rather treat the girl they like with respect. If their behavior is “unrealistic” I think we as a society have a long way to go. 

 

I never once thought of Haru as a perfect character. That would be the unrealistic character in other drama shows where everything work out perfectly for them: Rich, top scorer, most popular among females, nature just bends to his will, etc. Yeah, the kind of lead male that are extremely common in teen/college drama. Also relevant is that Haru doesn’t have a full setup with home, family, etc like the others. He doesn’t even belong in Secret initially. So then of course his existence is entirely connected to Danoh instead which I think is the story that the drama is trying to tell.

 

Meanwhile, I’m still waiting for growth from the two male characters who need to mature emotionally from kindergarten.

You got that RIGHT! Well said!

Unfortunately we still live in a world in which the guys who treat their girls with respect and love are considered as "too perfect" and "otherworldly". We need to move on from the early 2000s tsundere nonsense and teach that good man are the standard, not men like Nam Joo or Kyung.

Team Haru here.

 

Fair comment, @larrysouth.

 

I think you must understand that majority of the viewers of this genre of kdrama are women.  As I’ve written on my blog, for me, a big part of the romance in these kdramas is the belief a) that a woman is worth it, b) that her journey to self-discovery is relevant to the plot, and c) that her desires and wishes are important to the male lead.  DanOh is the plot here, not the side-story to Kyung's character rehabilitation. That’s why we’ll never get tired of Haru’s perfection.  

 

I'm sorry but mortal men with a beer gut, halitosis, and less-that-6-figure-salary job, need not apply in these women-centric romance fantasy. B)

BTW, Kyung fanatics shouldn't read my blog without antacid at hand. Sorry ahead of time. I wrote this PRIOR to Episodes 13 and 14. 

 

As for more interpretation of the major difference between Kyung and Haru’s attitudes toward DanOh, here’s my POV. 

 

Essentially, 
Haru = keep her safe
Kyung = keep her

 

Now, if Kyung’s change of heart allows him to let go of DanOh so she can be with Haru, then we’re heading towards the right direction.

Again if you’re Kyung-DanOh shipper, please take care of your heart. Don’t read this. I wrote it before Episodes 13 and 14 were shown. 

 

Hi @deandraluv, long time no see. :)

 

Good luck with the finale!

When I reference HR as otherworldly, this is what I mean.  He’s like the Little Prince.  Naive, childlike, untainted by the world.  So he behaves like someone who is unconventional.  He loves DO just as purely.  Which is why he comes across as an ideal.  He’s totally a person of DO’s imaginings.  Probably why he came to existence in Secret when she named him.  Entirely connected to her now and forever...fated to meet and fall in love.  It’s their story.  BK was always a minor detour.
