i thought at first that is was  kim so yeon the first female lead  here, even if her character is that  one of the bad guy

if we count , she has the most of screen time since the first episode so far

The writer also had another drama with 3 female protagonists so we can easily say it's the same case here. She also likes to give her villains more screentime than the good guys which is why the actors who play the villains usually get more recognition.

Yeah, the highlight of this week's episode was the last 10 mins of Ep 15. Kim So Yeon's brilliant acting, facial expressions of madness, relentlessness, anxiety, composure and guilt.   

Honestly, the melodramatics of both Rona and her mother are too much. They bring their troubles on themselves.   Rona, give up classical and go audition at a kpop agency. At least you will l

I`ve just finished episode 2 and it is officially for me. The worst drama choice for Kim So Yeon and I watched everything it was available from her projects. This drama is extremely ridiculous that ev

Just want to correct the "bone marrow transplant" procedure that Seol Ah has supposedly endured.


This is NOT how it is done nowadays. It is now called "Stem Cell Transplant", and in majority of the cases, donating "Stem Cells" is just like donating blood. Very easy, no anesthesia, pain free except the initial needle prick into your vein. They get all the stem cells they need from your blood - no need to "drill" into your bone at all.


And of course, adopting an orphan just for the purpose of getting stem cells makes no sense. You don't need to do that. Finding a stem cell match is the most difficult part. And the stem cell match database is global, and you can get stem cell donor and donation from any part of the world, if there is one. No need to adopt.

And "selling" orphans to rich families who need a stem cell transplant won't work, as getting a stem cell match from a small group of kids in the orphan is next to impossible. Obviously, this is drama, and these details are not important.   Just don't want it to perpetuate the false scary image when people hear about "bone marrow transplant".


But I encourage anyone between 18 to 35 to register as stem cell donors. It can really save lives. Only need a swab in your mouth to register, and donating stem cells is just like donating blood.

That is incorrect. My mother recently had to have bone marrow because she had B-Cell cancer. It was a very painful lengthy process! I should know since I was the donor!

Sorry about your mother's illness, and I hope she would get well soon.

But what I said was correct.  Nowadays, 70 to 80% of the stem cell transplant uses peripheral blood rather than bone marrow, and in some centers, 90+%.

Just a few random thoughts about the latest episodes:

 

Yun-Hui, oh, girl, you are your own worst enemy. Even though her antics have been bugging me for about 75% of the time she is onscreen, I had to cheer when she finally landed a blow on Seo-Jin. That was effective! And I felt bad for her when she was crying after Seo-Jin's father cut her down - that incident in high school is still a huge trauma for her. But she finally hit Seo-Jin where it hurts.

 

And she did it without Su-Ryeon's help. No idea how she got Seo-Jin's father to that restaurant, but it worked. Seo-Jin's world really came crashing down.

 

And of course, the rest of the episode was epic. Makjang at its finest. Seo-Jin looked SO CRAZY!

 

I don't have an opinion about Yun-Hui killing Min Seol-Ah, except that this show is designed to always take it up a notch with the OMG factor, and well, it delivered.

 

As far as Yun-Hui maybe-dating Dante... well, I guess it just gets crazier.

 

What does anyone see in Dante? He's so... unctuous. Like even before we knew he was an evil murderer, he looked like a little weasel. But three of the main ladies are attracted to him at some point? Haha, okay.

 

Logan Lee is the gift that keeps on giving. I just laugh everything he is on screen. And why did Su-Ryeon have to stab him with a feather pen? Why ANYTHING? This show is nuts.

 

No opinion about Rona and Seok-Hoon except that she is a bit less annoying and he's playing the same role he did in "Extraordinary You," the melancholy chaebol progeny.

 

And everyone is mentally cracking up.

 

My prediction is that the entire series will end with Hera Palace on fire.

I don't know where you read that from but having to deal with oncologists for years and living in the city where St Jude is located, bone marrow is painful and is preferable especially with dealing B cell cancers. Is it as painful as be giving birth to my two children with no epidural? No. It is no walk in the park either.

“The Penthouse” Confirmed To Return With Two More Seasons

 

The Penthouse” is confirmed to return with a new season!

 

Previously, Ilgan Sports reported that “The Penthouse” already wrapped up filming the first season. It was supposed to be 20 episodes long, but it was extended to 21 episodes. One source shared, “The second season was originally planned to be 20 episodes long, but the episodes will be divided into two seasons so that each season will be 12 episodes long. Unlike before, seasons two and three will air on Fridays and Saturdays.”

 

On December 28, a source from the drama shared, “It is true that we are currently filming season two. We are planning to change the broadcast days to Friday and Saturday, but the date of compilation is still under discussion.”

 

The first season of “The Penthouse” is 21 episodes long. Both the second and third seasons will be 12 episodes each.

 

“The Penthouse” is set in a 100-floor luxury penthouse apartment and centers around three women: the “queen” of the penthouse Shim Soo Ryun (Lee Ji Ah), the “prima donna” Chun Seo Jin (Kim So Yeon) who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, and Oh Yoon Hee (Eugene) who will do anything it takes to get into the world of high society.

The next season will be aired after the drama "Delayed Justice", and its final episode will be on the 6th of Feb.

 

That means we're expecting the next season to air on the 12th of Feb. I could be wrong though.

 

 

SPOILERS:

Spoiler

Anyway, just watched ep18 without subs. The ending scene was satisfying and unsatisfying at the same time. Satisfying because the evil people were locked up and panicking and I loved how the kids watching the chaos while they can't do anything about it. Unsatisfying because theybwon't die so soon and if they know that it was planned by LL and SSR, they are going to torment the poor duo further.

 

I almost teared up when I saw the scene with MSA, who barely escaped the car explosion. Once again, it reminded me that I shouldn't have sympathy to SH.

Haha, what is even happening? :astonished::neutral::tounge_xd::weary: (my face while watching this show)

 

Yun-Hui's new attitude, "I'm a murderer anyway, so I might as well just be evil now by sleeping with the devil and wearing more eyeliner." Aside from the general disappointment that she is now just another piece of trash, it just makes her character paper-thin.

 

Kind of enjoyed the look on Seok-Hun's face while watching the video feed of the parents being mildly tortured while Logan threatened to kill them. The other kids are screaming and crying, "Mommy!" But he kind of seemed like, "Hmmm, I don't know if I care if my dad dies."

 

So, as predicted, this will turn into some "Lord of the Flies" situation where everyone will betray each other to try and save themselves. So I guess tomorrow's episode is: flailing and crying! Flailing and crying some more. Then some screaming, and breaking stuff.

 

But no worries. You can't break apart the Hera Club gang because the prospect of making more money will bring them back together.

 

It was genuinely gross when Yun-Hui and Dante began kissing. OOOOH, BARF. But it is freaking hilarious when Logan and Su-Ryeon are giving each other sexy looks.

But if she was really the killer they could have just let her sleep with Yoon-Chul. They are teasing a lot of grey areas which i love but ultimately they will keep her clean.

 

So much about that part :D

 

Omg what an episode.

I am surprised by the reactions here. I thought this is what people wanted. I never expected Yoon-Hee to go there but i am all for it. 

 

Seems like the writers have gone blind in their greed for higher and higher ratings and abandoned any decency. Needless to say that i love it.

Glad to see that part. His twin sis was tearstruck. And he just ...

Me too. There really wasn't much going on with YH's character other than her loyalty to her daughter and her partnership with SR. YH finally has a conflict of her own again and if it has to involve her turning evil then so be it.
