After episode 8 I am convinced it's 100% Shim Su Ryeon, even Joo Dan Tae said that she was acting weird 2 years ago ignoring his calls etc. I mean Na Ae Gyo wouldn't do that especially if she is on go

Here's my theory about the relationship between NAG, JDT, and SSR.    NAG and JDT knew each other since childhood. When they became adults, they discovered that NAG looked like SSR. They too

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 one more question,is rona his child?

 It is a potential revelation in this season or next. Imagine the shock and drama value, but i doubt people will be surprised lol. Maybe writer is keeping it as a "subsititue" revelation if drama dries up and there is need for a sudden twist or plot to shake things up.

No because the timing doesn't match up. If Rona was maybe 3 years older than Eun Byol, I would have suspected it. But I do think Yoon Chul and Yoon Hee's break up was the very last time they saw each other.

The helicopter scene was funny, everyone getting blown by the wind :lol:

I like Seo Jin's new look here, her straight hair & makeup makes her looks younger compared to the first season. 

The maid was weird/creepy lmao since when was she in love with Dan Tae :crazy: Did I miss/forgot about this part in S1? 

Still wondering if Soo Ryun is actually dead...

man this is penthouse! Writernim can easily construct a reason that explain the missing timing and it would all make sense!

Never count out a drunken hookup. It's PENTHOUSE! after all. :lol:

This is strictly my personal theory, but I don't think that Yun-Hui killed Min Seol-Ah.

 

- Su-Ryeon's conclusion that Yun-Hui is the killer is based almost completely on Yun-Hui's guilty behavior AFTER she "remembered" killing Seol-Ah.

 

- Seol-Ah had Yun-Hui's DNA underneath her fingernails. That is the ONLY physical evidence that Su-Ryeon has.

 

Su-Ryeon said Yun-Hui's wound on her hand is the reason that Seol-Ah had Yun-Hui's DNA underneath her fingernails. (That Seol-Ah scratched Yun-Hui's hand while struggling.) But that wound was actually from Yun-Hui raging in Seo-Jin's office and breaking stuff.

 

So there is actually no conclusive physical proof at all. And I feel like that has to mean something.

 

I do think Yun-Hui believes she killed Min Seol-Ah. But she is pretty easily deluded. After all, she was somehow convinced into believing that she killed Su-Ryeon, too.

How I feel about S2 so far?

 

I feel like the show is more self-aware. It's like the show knows what made it a hit and is playing up the ridiculous parts. Like Gyu-Jin's wife and Mari openly enjoying all the cracktastic drama and licking their chops at all the vicious fighting.

 

Gyu-Jin and Mari kissing. :persevere:

 

I kind of like that Yun-Hui and Yun-Cheol weren't really married. After all, Yun-Cheol slept with Seo-Jin pretty recently. I guess that's all a part of their diabolical plan to bring JUDANTE! and Seo-Jin down. And they have plenty of time to get together later.

 

I'm also guessing that the girl who falls down the stairs is Eun-Byeol. She's dying in the same way that Seo-Jin killed her father. Maybe Seo-Jin pushed her down the stairs! Patricide and prolicide (A word I just learned right now.)

 Maybe... Season 2 feels a lot like satisfactory revenge. And that could involve leads getting cleared off.

And honestly? Y’all treat Seok-Hun like he’s a god, but hate Rona as if she killed someone. You loveeee Jenny’s character development but still have a grudge against Rona and it’s very weird, it’s incredibly biased.

Lol ikr! As I said before, all the kids (except Rona) need to be punished. I can understand Rona screaming and complaining to her mother, but please give us less screentime of that.

I don't know why people hate yoonhee. Yes she killed Min Seol Ah but she wasn't in a right state of mind. I see it as a mistake and i still have second thoughts about her being the killer. Also she never really wanted to kill Suryeon. Her avenging Suryeon is not her being guilty about wanting to kill her. It is oh yoon hee wanting to avenge the only friend that she had. Also all oh yoon hee wanted to do was to give rona a good life and let's not forget that rona was a spoilt brat who snapped at her mother for everything

She betrayed SSR and commited adultery with JDT. She also switched sides. The fact that she betrayed SSR because she believed SSR used her, but in reality she gained a lot of benefits. Without the help of SSR, she couldn't even live in Hera Palace, and Rona might die because of the car crash.

“The Penthouse 2” Ratings Soar Past 20 Percent For 2nd Episode; “Vincenzo” Achieves 3rd-Highest Premiere Of Any Weekend Drama In tvN History

 

The battle for weekend drama ratings is heating up!

 

On February 20, after premiering to a strong start the night before, SBS’s “The Penthouse 2” managed to break past the 20 percent mark with its viewership ratings for its second episode. According to Nielsen Korea, the latest broadcast of the hit drama scored average nationwide ratings of 15.1 percent and 20.4 percent for its two parts.

 

Meanwhile, Song Joong Ki’s new tvN drama “Vincenzo” made its own impressive start. The first episode of the drama scored an average nationwide rating of 7.7 percent and a peak of 9.5 percent, achieving the third-highest premiere ratings of any weekend drama in tvN history.

 

At present, “Vincenzo” has been bested only by “Mr. Sunshine,” which premiered to an average nationwide rating of 8.9 percent, and “Mr. Queen,” which kicked off with an average rating of 8.0 percent.

 

OCN’s new time-warp mystery drama “Times” premiered to an average nationwide rating of 1.6 percent, while JTBC’s new psychological thriller “Beyond Evil” scored an average rating of 3.9 percent for its second episode. TV Chosun’s “Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce)” saw a decline in viewership from last week, scoring an average rating of 7.7 percent for the night.

 

Finally, KBS 2TV’s “Homemade Love Story” stayed strong with average nationwide ratings of 26.0 percent and 31.0 percent for its two parts.

Seokhoon needs therapy and also he should be honest with his sister. That girl needs a reality check. I just want him to be a better person and get out from his fathers grip. His character should not be a rich boy pining after a girl that looks like she is over him.

 

 

I don't even know whether someone will get through to her - she would just ruin everything. I think that SH has been suspicious about about the identity of his mom's murderer since he witnessed the give-and-take scene between his father and the yandere housemaid.

 

Like, SK couldn't believe that the housemaid killed her mother just because she treated them well - a look in the housemaid's room and that's pretty much a huge reality-check, but SK just doesn't want her current 'world' to crumble around her. She's too prideful and she's holding on that pride no matter what.

 

Same with her bullying the weak - she can't stand Eun Byeul but works with her, and the kids that bullied her when the Seol-A-Lynching incident came to public to bully the poor. Even in the same clique, she doesn't have much influence anymore.

 

Funny enough, where is Seok Hun all this time? How far did he cut ties with his sis? He's trying to get onto the right path by himself, that much can be said. But I don't think him being honest with his sis will help even one bit cuz she's in her own world and not even he can bring her out at this point.

 

Well deserved for Seok Kyung, I guess - instead of trying to understand her own mother, she let herself be wrapped up in her feelings, and stayed wrapped up in them. (To forgive someone like that takes a lot of mental restraint and discipline, but it's not impossible.)

I don't think that there was coercion when yoonchul picked cheong A over yunhee. He was thinking about himself alone and he got what he deserved a loveless marriage with a crazy cheater. 

 

 

Fair enough, I guess. I see. I wonder what he is up to.

 

9 hours ago, Songbae said:

Also i think it is weird how people forget about the lawyer, his wife and mari. Like i get that they are funny but they are also not good people either. And i am not a fan of the cheating arc that they might be in.

 

Actually, if the comedy trio can somehow break themselves apart, then I'd definitely like it - they deserve it for being the silent culprits and not stand up for what is moral and just, allowing themselves to be a gear in the chain of corruption.

I couldn't watch the "eating" scene with Jeni I just couldn't stomach what they were doing to her.  It's amazing that they dont have school shootings in SK with that severe bullying, they always end up committing suicide.

 

I really felt for her and also couldn't watch the scene completely - I hope something good happens to Jenny, like the new-found golden voice Yun Hee personally vocal coaching her (and Ro Na of course), all the while the vocal coach of Eun Byeul, Seok Kyung and the gang starts failing at her jobs. And Jenny suddenly getting good grades because she has been studying with Ro Na.

 

I really wish Jenny won't change back her heart to evil that soon.

Can you have lust and passion without loving someone though? I think you should atleast like them in a certain sense?

 

I guess that is how prostitution works? Patricidal diva, in my eyes, just looks like an object with a certain worth to the psychopath. I just crack every day at how much the two fight on the topic of Oh Yun Hee and Ha Yun Cheul.

The contract marriage trope between Oh Yoon Hee and Ha Yoon-Cheol has brought me back to soompi... OMG They like each other!!:love: Did y'all see their little smiles in episode 2 after the elevator kiss, as they entered their apartment? I actually thought they'd gotten married for real because they were each others first loves who finally get together in addition to the obvious revenge. Then it turns out it was a plain old revenge contract marriage.... I was so excited at the little smiles!! At this point I'll excuse whatever they do as long as it brings them together, but I suspect Writernim will dash my hopes and their romance will end badly.

 

Strange how this drama has given me more kiss scenes than the average romance/romcom/ melodrama Kdrama so far.....:kisslevel:

That's a good question. I personally think you can defn have lust and passion without loving someone. Especially if you are a superficial sort of person like SJ and Dantae. It's like that's the depth their emotions can go for each other, know what I mean? They are physically attracted to each other but emotionally there's a disconnect.  They both use passion and sex to control and drive a relationship though lol. SJ seems to need more emotional assurance than Dantae who's very much about his goals and is practical. 

 

That's why I think she clung to her ex for so long. She's seen what he's capable of and what he's now giving YH(or so she thinks lol)

 

Ironically, YH seems more suited to Dantae emotionally. She's so used to being on her own for so long and doesn't seem as clingy as SJ.  She's also passionate and has needs lol 

 

SR was I think, indifferent to him ultimately. He never managed to overcome the deep love she had for her ex. And she TRIED i think to live up to this idea of being a good wife and loving her husband. But it was very much out of duty. She never loved him-which is why it was so easy for her to fall in love with her ex. When she called him,  it felt more like guilt that they were breaking a promised arranged marriage rather than omg, I'm breaking my boyfriend's heart. 

 

SR/Logan's relationship formed based on a common cause. They are both super similar as well so it's not suprising that their close union resulted in feelings.  Both fundamentally good but passive as hell- SR because of her personality, grief over her husband's death and her child in coma. Logan- because of his sickness primarily I think. But when provoked to action, they are lethal, cunning and calculating chaebols lol. Out of the three couples, their relationship seemed the most chaste and sincere.  In another lifetime, they would have probably been a good match.

The only person that can get through to her is her mother, which is why I want to see her return. It's a makjang so it's still possible. I know SK loves her mother but because of the maid's manipulation she caused a drift between them. That's why she's acting out. It will be a bittersweet ending for the twins to reunite with their mother.    

 

---

 

I think Shim Su Ryeon is still the protagonist of the overall story. Even after death, she still drives the plot forward. It's still her story. Oh Yoon Hee is our defacto main character for Season 2. She acts as the audience surrogate. The protagonist and the main character can be two different people.

But Suryeon did use oh yoon hee. Oh yoon hee was wrong to switch sides but the both of them gained from it.

Right now suryeon needs to come back from death. Sometimes I get where SK is coming from. I am not a bully i have never bullied anyone but i did grow up with an abusive father and a mother who didn't do anything about it. I resented my mom a lot because i wished that she had done something about it. That is how SK felt when SR was alive. SR focused on the sick child and didn't really pay attention to the twins so when SK found out that SR wasn't her Biological mother it was heartbreaking. To SK she had a mother did nothing about the father's abuse even though the mother didn't know about it but SK thought that she knew about it. SR was the only motherly figure in her life so even though she resented her mother she still loved her. And also SK needs an excuse to hate RN so her admitting that Ms Yang killed her mother gets rid of that excuse. I feel that she doesn't want to be left behind. SK and Eunbyeol are pretty much the same but Eunbyeol needs help like right now.

HI EVERYONE, I'm back FOR SEASON 2!!! 

 

Okay so I don't have a lot to say cause the first 2 eps were quite meh in my opinion. Except the scenes where Dr Ha and YH appeared in the damn freaking helicopter making everyone shocked LMAO. That was my favorite scene! Also, I'm pretty sure YH has some revenge plan with Dr Ha and Logan so I can't wait to see WHAT IS IT and WHO it involves! 

 

Gosh, that scene where the kids turned their back on Jenny tho. UGH reminds me of why I hated them in the first place. but kudos to Jenny for that character development. Now all I'm waiting for is Jenny teaming with Rona and breaking the rest. 

 

Seokyung being angry is understandable (as much as I hated how she threw water at YH and bullied Jenny) but hopefully when she finds out the truth that it was her dad all along, she'll turn her back on him and become nicer. 

 

Ah.. Eunbyeol.. All i can say is that i'm sure S2 Eunbyeol will become more crazy and manipulative like her mother. But oof, that mysterious guy in the closet though? My heart is anxiously hoping it's NOT Seokhoon.. 

 

Speaking of home boy, very little scenes of him so far so I have nothing really to say. Only that I'm still on the ship of SHxRona. 

 

Rona, poor girl having to live without her mom for 2 years, getting mistreated and ostracised by people :( I really can't wait to see what she's gonna do now that she's back at school! hopefully she'll be more stronger and fight back this time.

I think it’s Rona that fell down the stairs, if you look closely around the neck of the victims you can see the outline of the earrings Rona is wearing. Also, when the parents first arrive at the scene Seo jin is there but when they’re all going down the stairs she’s no where to be seen so I think she went looking for Eunbyeol to get rid of evidence.

Spoiler

I think it's Rona too! The girl's hair looked like it was in the half up-half down hairstyle Rona was sporting earlier in the teaser.

also I wonder who was in Eunbyul's room :eyes:

The problem is, at this point ,there is no one to really care for, it doesn't matter who lives or dies when everything is an extreme, the acting way over the top,( though I am sure, as an actor, it still can be fun & many, though not all, are very good at their craft)) but there is no real shock value, very few layers, & without wanting to offend anyone, it concerns me that this type of extreme human hating violent drama is so popular - that deserves it's own study- says a lot about us as a society. For this reason, as someone from the industry, I am interested in where the writers will go...I still enjoy reading the posts & will peak in to see a bit of the show once in awhile to see if I change my mind...that there is a 3rd season is not enticing because, again, there is not enough human decency left in most characters to care - the writing, directing, acting, all produce a high-pitched monotone, ....it's an unending Penthouse version of " Lord of the Flies" & for many, knowing that so much violence & indifference is happening in real time, it is neither entertaining or redeeming

Seo Jin bad nightmare, dream that Eunbyeol fell and died. Is another Kim Soon-ok corkscrew coastal rider.

Eunbyul's playmate...a Lady. She became a lesbian because she hate man like her father, stepfather and the boy she love. Another conspiracy theory from Kim Soon-ok ????
