Did you mean this actress?

  Reveal hidden contents

Park Shin Hye?

 

If you meant her, apparently, it's only a rumor, PSH's agency also clarified that she was never offered this role.

 

Anyway, when talking about SYJ as KMY, not only the director but even the writer said she's the perfect one and can't imagine someone else as KMY. I'm so glad they made the right choice in choosing SYJ. 

 

Yes!  That's the actress I came across.  Thanks for the clarification!!  

 

Somewhat related but also not really: was SYJ ever a surprise choice in terms of partnering with KSH?  I have never watched either of them in a drama, but of course I knew about KSH's massive popularity and accolades.  In a way, I am so glad.  This drama gave SYJ deserving recognition and showcased phenomenal acting and proved you don't always need 2 established powerhouses to make a drama successful!

HERE'S THE BACK STORY ON WRITER JO YONG'S INSPIRATION FOR THE DRAMA & HOW SURPRISED SHE WAS THAT KIM SOO-HYUN PICKED HER DRAMA. **Disclaimer: not a perfect translation but it's okay

Jo Yong's Love Story:

...."This drama started with my love story with a man who had a personality disorder as the background of the drama. It's a drama like a self-reflection of my narrow-mindedness. I could't admit, embrace, and move beyond the prejudiced views. I gave up, and it was a sad ending. So through the character Kang-tae, who is the opposite of me, I wanted to show him recognition and acceptance that I couldn't do back then. I also wanted to apologize. [directed to her former love] I wanted to tell you somehow that it wasn't your fault and please be happy wherever you are. While writing this drama, I received the most healing treatment than anyone else, so I was happy and am grateful for the character Kang-tae."

 

 

I remember reading this and thinking wow, it all makes sense now, with this context.  Do you guys interpret it the way I do - the writer wanted Kang Tae's character to be the person she couldn't be, but also to be a character that in many ways resembles her own internal struggles at the time?  To me Kang Tae is someone who sacrifices immensely and does so with grace, but he also suffers and it's not exactly the healthiest way to live.  But someone looking at him would see he is so giving and so selfless.  Like the epitome of a big brother/family man that puts the needs of his family above his own, always.  So maybe the writer aspired to be like Kang Tae.  But even if she was like Kang Tae, she wanted to reconcile how to find him balance with his role as an individual person and as a brother.... in this way she finds reconciliation with herself as well (had she become like Kang Tae in her own life).

 

Just some thoughts!!  I loved that she shared this back story with us.  I also loved that the writer shared the hardest scene for her to write was the one where Kang Tae apologized in tears to Sang Tae... also the scene that punched me the most (and I'm sure many others).  It's true - you can really feel the emotions when someone poured that much emotions in.  Writer, actor, and audience :joy:

Lmao whatever. Korean media/Knetz are a joke and they need to grow up. I watched Backstreet Rookie out of curiosity and save for annoying scenes of cultural appropriation that drama was like PG rated. And they called it so inappropriate.  They are so scandalized by the dumbest things. I don't even take them seriously and I hope nobody on the IOTNBO team does either.

Lmao lo que sea. Los medios coreanos / Knetz son una broma y necesitan crecer. Vi Backstreet Rookie por curiosidad y salvo por escenas molestas de apropiación cultural en las que el drama tenía clasificación PG. Y lo llamaron tan inapropiado. Están tan escandalizados por las cosas más tontas. Ni siquiera los tomo en serio y espero que nadie en el equipo de IOTNBO lo haga tampoco. 

I totally agree. How do you kiss a couple in love? With eyes open and without opening the mouth? Strange, and I'm not talking about vulgarities that I don't like either.

This is one of the most memorable dramas that I have watched so far. And honestly it is certainly one of the best dramas as well. The story was very nicely done in a way that it tackled a lot of issues in our current society. This gave us a glimpse of a real life story/situation that may happen in everyday life. Through this drama, a lot of lessons were learned and aside from that the acting of the actors and actresses were superb. I also love the OST as well. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it to give it a chance and you will absolutely love it.

Este es uno de los dramas más memorables que he visto hasta ahora. Y, sinceramente, también es uno de los mejores dramas. La historia estaba muy bien hecha de una manera que abordó muchos problemas en nuestra sociedad actual. Esto nos dio un vistazo de una historia / situación de la vida real que puede suceder en la vida cotidiana. A través de este drama, se aprendieron muchas lecciones y, aparte de eso, la actuación de los actores y actrices fue excelente. También me encanta el OST. Se lo recomiendo a cualquiera que no lo haya visto para darle una oportunidad y le encantará.

Let's help each other from our countries but united (by netflix we saw thousands) how we support INTBIO with the issue of legal sanction. It is the best drama broadcast by netflix and done in these times with a really consciousness-raising content of mental illness, autism, pain and healing.

I think what also solidified this drama is how they ended it in a neat bow. Usually, with characters like them, someone or everyone ends tragically (nothing wrong with that, too). But instead, the writers explicitly suggested the possibility that they, too, deserve a happy ending. And they can start by choosing to have a different narrative of themselves. 

 

To me, DHJ is hte typical ending of stories with these type of characters. She was the "old-school" way of thinking. Her relevance to the story is to give an example of someone who, in Mun Yeong's words, is not even curious how it's like (of course, DHJ is also sick in the head, so she also represents sociopaths)

Creo que lo que también solidificó este drama es cómo lo terminaron en una elegante reverencia. Por lo general, con personajes como ellos, alguien o todos terminan trágicamente ( tampoco hay nada de malo en eso ). Pero en cambio, los escritores sugirieron explícitamente la posibilidad de que ellos también merecen un final feliz. Y pueden comenzar eligiendo tener una narrativa diferente de sí mismos. 

 

Para mí, DHJ es el típico final de historias con este tipo de personajes. Ella era la forma de pensar de la "vieja escuela". Su relevancia para la historia es dar un ejemplo de alguien que, en palabras de Mun Yeong,  ni siquiera siente curiosidad por saber cómo es (por supuesto, ella también está enferma de la cabeza, por lo que también representa a los sociópatas).

She did not have a sociopathy, she suffered from an antisocial disorder, not necessarily a sociopathy. But everything else agrees.

Sorry for the way I constructed the sentence. I meant DHJ is the sociopath, not Mun Yeong :)

I started watching this drama half-heartedly but found myself engrossed almost at once. It beautifully and bravely  portrays the darker facets of life and human nature, while maintaining a sense of lightheartedness as well- that’s quite a feat imo.  

 

I was also very impressed by Oh Jung-se’s acting! He deserves an award for this role!
