So now richardsimmons is also richardsimmons. I'm so sad. I'm speechless.  Csj will never be happy because she'll always be haunted by ghosts of MSA, her father,  and now SR

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 watched the ending and... I'm speechless.

 

Spoiler

DT was the one who killed SR. His assistant tricked YH into entering the palace.

 

This episode is basically about OYH interrogated by the police, crying because of "guilt", and flashbacks of her and SR.

 

When the judge was about to sentence OYH, YH who admitted her crime suddenly made a chaos by saying that she disn't kill SR, yes at the very last minute. So the case has been reinvestigated.

 

The police car flipped when LL secretly attached a rope across the road, and took YH out from the police car.

 

LL pointed at YH's throat with a sharp object, but eventually, YH stabbed herself with it. She probably died.

 

The episode ended with a flashback of YH and SR on a cruise.

 

(No, LL didn't die, he was just threatened)

 

Kinda bitter about the ending tbh.

 

Tbh, Idek anymore. If SSR is really dead, it will chase a lof of fans away, and the ratings will decrease, so they don't want that. At the same time, they made it believable that SSR is dead.

Ok. Hopefully in season 2 we will get to see more of Logan Lee. Cause if SR really is dead, he and the reporter are the most likely candidates to seek revenge for her death. But if she is not dead, even then as a dead person to the world, she will need logan and his money's help to get back her life or continue her revenge, now for both herself and for Seol Ah. Plus she needs to get seok hoon and seok kyung out of the penthouse while the 2 are still sane and alive!!

Eh I really doubt SR died. If she did, then season 2 is going to be a whirlwind of rage against Dantae and SeoJin. SeokHoon looks like he's starting to figure out what happened

I actually somehow feel like Seok Hoon is quite aware of all his father's deeds, not just the ones against Seok Kyung, himself and SR. But what i don't get is if she is alive, who helped her? Cause YH was in  no condition to help, the maid was bought over by money, Logan doesn't seem to know as according to the final minutes of the final episode he still thinks YH killed Seol Ah and SR. The reporter also doesn't seem like she knows as when she confronted YH, she asked how she could do such a thing to someone who considered her a friend. So who could have helped SR, unless JDT's bodyguard actually secretly got fed up of the killing and helped SR or she pretended to die and got help from one of the paramedics or doctors at the hospital they most likely took her to, to make it seem like she was dead when she was actually alive? 

 

Whatever it is I just want season 2 fast and i want a lot more of Logan Lee and Su Ryeon and a nice love angle for them would be nice as well. Plus i really hope they don't give up on Seol Ah's revenge. Cause i still think the Hera palace people should have paid more for everything they had done to her.

Also curious to find out the story of SR first husband and JDT and also the twin's biological mother!!

I think SSR might really be dead. The actress could always come back as a doppelganger. Logan can avenge Seol-ah and SSR. A new character, like the twin's mom, can be the new "good" character. 

 

I don't want her to really be dead because she was the only one I liked, but if she's alive, I wish the writer would have left a little more believable wiggle room.

@Secretz Thanks for the update and spoilers of the ending of S1!

Wow.....I'm just speechless.  Honestly episode 19 ended well for me and that is how I just want to remember this series because episodes 20 and 21 made no damn sense to me.  Omg I'm really upset with this drama. Really disappointed with this. :crazymad: So many up and down that I really don't have the energy to watch another season of this mess. Let me watch True Beauty or Homemade Love Story.

That's it ladies and gentlemen, 

 

YOU'VE BEEN SLAPPED BY THE SHOW 

:surprisedwut:

 

The moment they announce season 2, I was not happy lol because I have a feeling they will end season 1 on a cliff hanging note. 

But i did not expect to have them end on a stupidity absurd note like this one lolol.

For some reason.... I was waiting for a redemption arc for CSJ? She has been getting more and more insane, however, something tells me that she realizes how terrible she treats her daughter and how evil she is. In the scene she killed her father, she tells him that the reason she's that RickRoll'D up is because of him (due to the way he raised her, etc). I thought Eunbyeol attempting suicide would be a wake-up call for her. The way she broke down after Yoonchul left her office on that phone call...damn, I thought she was going to ask someone to take off the foundation or something. Deeply disappointed that she had a hand in SSR's murder. I thought she would be teaming up with SSR to take OYH and JDT down.

 

Oh well, she was a richardsimmon anyways. Can't want to see CSJ and JDT get what they deserve in season 2.

 

Also...I wonder how the twins will react when they eventually find out that it was their father who killed SSR. Even if that wasn't SSR but their biological lookalike mother who died, they still be furious either way. Will they team up with the good side that's going to avenge Min Seol Ah and a maybe dead SSR?

 

Also... an unexpected show of kindness from Jenny? Why did the writers add that? Will there be a redemption arc for Jenny?

I've seen this theory float around. My question is how would the biological lookalike mother know that her son was in danger?

If SSR is still alive? Who's going to find out first? Logan or Yoon-Hee?

 

Also, remember the drama never showed SSR's body like they did with KSA. Nor did they show her casket get cremated.

I'm also inclined to believe that perhaps DT's secretary is working with SR after DT treated him like a hunted animal. 

 

Maybe we have a secret ambulance switch going on and she's recovering in an unknown location?

This....I hope so...maybe she didn't die and there was a switcheroo?

There is a reason, they didn't show her body at a morgue.

You know who I think might survive? Yoon Hee. Although how she will escape a prison sentence is the question.

 

And all through this last episode, I kept thinking, wow, Logan’s dad, way to go with being sketchy and mean to SeolAh. It meant basically causing no end of trouble and hurt all around. It’s like he was this big American businessman, but had no idea how wills work, and in the meantime, just threw away someone who was loyal and affectionate that he could easily have settled into a good job, marriage and a small trust fund, all of which would have been nothing much in exchange for saving his only son’s life.

 

questions: are we getting multiple seasons instead of lots of episodes at once because of covid? And what are the release dates for P2 and P3 exactly?  I know someone said February 12 for P2, but is that confirmed on the SBS site? I don’t read Hangul and never have luck searching those sites anyway, so any help is much appreciated because I’m hooked here!

That scene where Seo-Jin melts down in her office after talking to Dr. Ha - the trembling lips, the barely suppressed screaming, the tears - that was pretty great. Yes, this show is about trash people acting trashy, but that was an amazing scene, right up there with her losing it after letting her father die.

 

Also, high-fives to the actress playing Eun-Byeol. She began the series as the blandest one, with no previous credits to her name compared to the other "kid" actors. Her turning into Evil Little Seo-Jin Clone was genuinely chilling. So Seo-Jin commits patricide and her child will sacrifice her in return. Karma!

 

JUDANTE! So. Freaking. Evil. I cracked up laughing when he switched to crying over Su-Ryeon's death in the interrogation room, after smirking and yawning. (Don't these interrogation rooms have video cameras? Oh well. It's PENTHOUSE!)

 

Let us also never forget how flippin' evil the Hera Club gang is. Gleefully cackling that Su-Ryeon's murder took the heat off them for covering up Min Seol-Ah's death. The way they were dancing at their party while their maids were clapping along (OMG, so crazy) - honestly, they looked like ghouls. Just because they might be slightly less evil than JUDANTE! - they did also wash off the blood after an innocent child died and moved her body and set it on fire - because they were afraid of their property values going down.

 

I loved that Je-Ni was being a tiny-bit nice to Ro-Na, bringing her food and stuff. I mean, it was surprising, but it's still nice to see that some of the kids are redeemable. Their parents sure aren't.

 

Logan Lee thinks he is Batman, I guess? LOVE IT. He is hilarious.

 

My guess for Season 2 is that both Su-Ryeon and Yun-Hui are miraculously alive. Because...  it's PENTHOUSE!

 

My last thought is about something that bugs me in K-dramas in general. If someone is lying there after being stabbed, you should not pull that knife out, and you should not move that body. You always see stuff like that in K-dramas, where someone gets hit by a car or something, and then someone else grabs them and shakes them, shouting, "Wake up!" Uhhh, internal injuries? Call the ambulance and stop touching them, please. (HAHA, hopefully no one ever has to deal with such things in real life, but I hate seeing that all the time. Once again, I'm the nut for demanding realism from PENTHOUSE!)

 

The most bonkers moment of the episode came at the very end when Su-Ryeon and Yun-Hui are on the boat doing that Titanic thing with each other. :lol: That is true love, eh?
