Inspired by Bong Joon Ho's one inch barrier comment ,decided to embark on the journey of kdramas..This is what she had to say about CLOY..

CLOY domination indeed...And FYI ..she is a professional critic...A tight slap to those who say that CLOY is all about lead actors' romance whereas the writing and directing were not extraordinary.

CLOY being the most popular internet drama of first half of  2020 ...Apart from breaking TVN's record...people were heavily engaged in CLOY related discussions in internet..

The difference between CLOY and the other two dramas is hugggeee.. Imagine if the first 6 episodes of CLOY that aired in 2019 also included in this survey!!!

I really miss CLOY. I'm sad I didn't discover the show until it was airing its final 2 episodes and missed out on the vibrant discussions here. I'm slowly making my way through the thread, currently on page 178!!!

 

I've signed up for a reddit account, so I can talk about the show with people who are just now discovering the show. :D

After 450+ pages of comments, I have nothing particularly new or insightful to add... BUT, this is the first drama my husband watched with me, and after the tunnel episode he kind of sighed despondently and said, "well, this guy sure makes all other men look like crap...!" :lol:

Oh thanks! Saw that too, I just thought there’s a longer one and I hope there is.  Any updates on Seoul Drama awards, I’m still hopeful for them to get an award.

In a recent interview of SYJ headlined SYJ overwhelmed by Japan success of CLOY (something like that!) I am so happy to read some of her thoughts on specific CLOY scenes!  That's what I really hoped for when the drama ended a while ago.  I don't know how to carry over the quote from the SYJ thread but you can find it over there. :)

 

I'm paraphrasing from memory - but SYJ saying the final good-bye scene in episode 16 was an unforgettable one means so much - because indeed that scene made such an emotional impact on viewers - we all cried so, so much. :bawling:  I can't get over that scene.  She said it required immense emotions by both actors (HB and her) and the characters' emotions exploded.  Yes!!!  I'm comforted by knowing that what we suspected (that it must have been a difficult and emotional scene for them tenfold compared to viewers watching them in that scene) is, in fact, true.  :confounded:

 

Miss them so much.  What are the chances now to get a panel interview where the director, HB, and SYJ sit and talk about specific scenes?  Ah, sigh.

Hello, just discovering this thread now after falling in love with CLOY.  Hope there are still some fellow late watchers around!  CLOY is actually my first kdrama but I think CLOY would be a very enjoyable series by any standard. It made me laugh more than I expected, especially the North Korean scenes, and the acting and chemistry by the leads and supporting actors was impressive all round! 

 

Read that SYJ asked for the reunion kiss scene to be filmed again before a green screen because she felt the emotions weren't all captured the first time they shot in Switzerland?  Great that she had such high standards for such a pivotal scene, and great that the director allowed for the reshoot (not sure this is always possible because of the expense?).  I saw another green screen scene in the BTS where SYJ has her hair in a bun and she and HB look like they are just in a photoshoot with arms around each other's waist.  Does anyone know what that scene was about? I don't recall it in the actual series?  Was it for one of their photos in their Swiss cabin?

 

The BTS videos were really interesting to watch and just shows how much work and how many people go into filming a series.  Also so impressive to see how SYJ can kind of turn on/off her tears or even be so immersed in a scene that she doesn't stop crying after cut.

 

If there's a tiny, teeny imperfection when it comes to CLOY for me is that perhaps the kissing scenes could have been better?  I don't know if it's the norm for kissing in Kdrama to be so chaste or just because of Seri and Ri's circumstances in CLOY that made the hesitate and not have passionate kissing. Except at the very end.  I also thought they might have been more affectionate when living in the same apartment in Seoul.  Like how could they resist lol.  I guess the director was going more for sweet than sexual tension, but SYJ and HB could have set the house on fire if they wanted to go with UST.  It did feel a little strange at times that these characters in their 30s were as shy and chaste as teenagers at times.  So many scenes of them just standing there, not touching and looking at each other for 10 seconds.

 

Does anyone know what scenes were filmed in Jeju? Did they film in chronological order after the Switzerland scenes? Yeah, another criticism i would make is that the Switzerland scenes were a weak point in the series imo, despite the beautiful scenery. The destiny theme was pushed a bit too hard.   Those beautiful shots of the leads with HB in black and SYJ in purple with her arm around him were so nice but not used in the series?  But I thought the happy ending in Switzerland was quite well done on the whole.

@Seriya thanks for sharing your thoughts..

I agree with u on the  lack of skinship part between RiRi couple. Infact most of us were frustrated as there were so many missed opportunities..HB and SYJ have a chemistry to die for.But maybe the reason could be that it was the script's demand that they shouldn't cross the line or something like that..I guess it is our only consolation..

I think there was some mistranslation over the reshooting thing..She just mentioned that the reunion scene had to be done with CGI as the emotions didn't properly built up..There was no mention as to who requested for it..

Yes you are right..that photoshoot was for their cabin in Switzerland..

As for the last BTS pic where Seri was wearing a purple cardigan...many of us think that there was an alternate ending but couldn't push it through due to political or some other reasons.

From what I read somewhere, the Jeju scenes were from episode 1 where Seri was in the DMZ, running in the minefield and was being chased by Capt Ri and the ducklings. 
 

I believe the Switzerland plot was chosen because it is historically a neutral country between SK and NK affairs. Another reason could be because it is a preferred destination of the NK elite which RJH and Seo Dan characters are a part of. Kim Jung Un and his siblings have lived and studied in Switzerland when they were younger under different names. The Swiss plot could have been inspired by this. Lol. It also happened that Switzerland is one country that allows assisted death which was a driving point in Seri’s story.


On another note, I love this forum but if you want more active discussions on CLOY you may join us on Reddit! We have a weekly rewatch discussions if you feel like watching the series again. Lol

Thanks for replying!  This was my first kdrama so wasn't sure what the general level of skinship is, or if it differs depending on the timeslot of a series.  To be completely honest, I did think some of the kisses did look slightly awkward here because with Asian drama they often don't move their mouths/lips much, not that I'm expecting open mouthed kisses or anything.  Not sure if that was more to do with actors or the directing for those scenes to show hesitation and shyness and RJH being a reserved character with little dating experience.  The finale kiss was a more passionate one, as befitting a reunion situation, so we had that at least.  I didn't expect passionate scenes for a family friendly series like CLOY but the characters were really super chaste in the Seoul apartment scenes considering they are characters in their 30s who had basically declared their love for each other.  Even when drinking soju together and sitting on a bed together, they kept a physical distance.  Like you said, maybe the script/directors/actors decided the tone was to be one of sweetness and restraint rather than to tap into sexual tension.

 

After watching CLOY, I started watching SJY's earlier series SITR and was surprised to see so much natural kissing and intimacy between the couple so I guess the tone of kdrama can really differ depending on the writing and directing. 

 

That said, restraint and subtlety can enhance romantic chemistry depending on the story.  One of the biggest reasons for CLOY to be such a good drama imo is that they built up the attraction and the push and pull between the two leads very well.

Ah I see, thanks for the clarification. So do kdrama generally shoot in chronological order and even airing as they shoot, except for the overseas filming which would have been shot out of order? Do they read through the entire script for all the episodes during their script reading before filming?  I enjoyed those brief bts clips of the script reading. They are all excellent actors so I'm not sure I could tell if they shoot out of order like for films, but it would have been interesting to start shooting with the ending scene in Switzerland.  I wouldn't have known it was a green screen scene without reading about it.  It seems like there is time pressure with the shoots for tv series so glad they got to do the ending scene again to perfect it. 

 

I think the ending was about as happy as it could be while leaving space for imagination.  It was enough for me to know they managed to find each other again in Switzerland and even set up a home there.  I didn't need to see them with twins running around or to know that RJH would defect in the future.  But there are other kdramas/movies featuring North Koreans so I don't know if political reasons would be a factor in the ending here?

 

I thought they presented the human side of NK quite well here, while not entirely ignoring the darker aspects of the regime but not delving into them as that was not the focus of the series.  The depiction of everyday lives and relationships in NK were a highlight and arguably a bit more interesting than the SK scenes for me.

 

They looked too pretty in the black/purple cardigan pics. Deserved a framed photo in their home at least!

I've been to beautiful Jeju but didn't recognize those forests/running fields as part of the island!   I thought it was just somewhere in mainland SK.  SYJ looks like a good runner btw lol. Do you know where in SK the paragliding scenes in NK were filmed where they both jump off the cliff or was that all CGI?  And I'm guessing the NK village was a built set? But then I saw this pic of HB & SYJ at a famous Busan restaurant so it seems they went on location around SK as well?

 

I agree that Switzerland was featured because it is traditionally where NK elites go for studies because it is a neutral country.  I liked that they touched on the difference in lives between NK villagers, elites etc with a deft touch.  I didn't find that the scenes in Switzerland from the characters' past to be a strong theme in the storytelling, but I guess the writer wanted to hammer in the themes of fate and destiny and the characters saving each other.  But for me, the story of the 2 characters simply falling in love in NK in the present was enough for me. 

 

Yes, I'm still rewatching too but skipping all the villain scenes heh. 

 

I was also wondering about, is it normal for Seo Dan's mother and uncle- or in any Korean relationship- to have the woman kind of kicking/shoving the man as a point of humour? Is that a cultural thing?  I didn't realize till after watching CLOY that they were in Parasite as well! 

 

Was CLOY expected to do well before release because it was written by a writer who had written hits before and 2 top actors?  Or was it not expected to do well because of the NK premise etc?  It seems the series has exceeded expectations in terms of popularity both in SK and abroad.  Well deserved!

I think the paragliding scene except for the tornado of course lol is a real place in Korea. The filmed in a lot of locations and they have become somewhat of a tourist spot in SK. The  Busan scenes are the ones from the port and the boat scenes I believe. There’s quite a few videos on YouTube where people go on these filming location tours. This one’s one of my faves: 

 

 

As for the kicking thing, it’s pretty much a cultural thing. It’s way waaay worse with other kdramas lol such as grabbing wrist, hitting and a lot of yelling. I’ve been watching kdramas for years and I could never get used to it lol. It has gotten a lot better now with newer shows such as CLOY, thankfully. 
 

I believe the initial criticism and skepticism before the show started was the NK plot. But alas, CLOY proved them all wrong by ending up to be the highest rated TVN series/3rd in cable history and a worldwide phenomenon too.

Behind the scene photos are starting to surface on the interview - released by the crew. Rumor has it that the confidentiality clause in the contract/agreement has finally expired now, thus photos are spreading.
