[Current Drama 2020] Phoenix / The Firebird, 불새 - Mon to Fri @ 8:35 KST


Recommended Posts

so after five episodes, it feels like the drama is finally settling in. the female lead is a bit all over the place and it is hard to believe her "I am in LOVE!" routine.

makes you wonder if she is having some sort of delayed teenager rebellion because she didn't get to go to art school and hated being sent away to boarding school when young. it feels like she is now turning against her parents in frustration but how much of that is because of sae hoon or just her own general cooped up anger? it was interesting to see how she figures out who na kyung is and use that tail for her own benefit. ha! and her fainting routine when she already knew what was coming. kekeke.. she is actually quite devious!

 

and sae hoon is really handsome when he smiles! hahahha... so when he was arguing with his dad, sae hoon finally became more interesting. found it amusing when his friend that everyone in the mom's circle hates ji eun's mom. hahahah.. and what is with the mom and ji eun's sister having white streaks in their hair? is it some sort of halloween theme? devil loves prada?

@celebrianna ~ re: your question  

@Lmangla she may need to rethink her choice and fall in love with the SML, No one would  want someone doing this after kissing him    Is pandemic now , I can’t kiss anyone I don’t know  

@shana0127 ~ like @maribella mentioned, in the original, she ended up with the male lead. however, this wasn't a typical triangle. will try not to give too many spoilers but part of the reason I loved

@LeftCoastOppa ~ am hoping the drama will settle into a groove and it will get better once we get the time leap. even with the older version, it was after the time leap the drama really hit its stride.

 

right now, am still not getting a read on ji eun. reminds me of the question my english teacher asked of romeo juliet -- was romeo in love with juliet or was he in love with the idea of being in love? ji eun is such a volatile over-the-top female lead. what woman in her 20s is so over dramatically in love with being in love? rather than the class differences or we will eventually break up, sae hoon should have said -- girl, I can't handle your dramatics, thats why I am dumping you. hahahhahah....

more than the leads, am finding this train wreck of a relationship between na kyung and jung min fascinating. the guy is a coward hoping to hide his girlfriend and then so hurt that she might be using him for his money and so dumps her? ummm, okay then. meanwhile, she is like "I will have revenge on you now" -- now, that is a far more interesting drama. so will she get packed off to hong kong and then come back 10 years later with a child ready to do some revenge? now that is a daily I would watch! ^_^

@Lmangla I´m with  you about Ji eun.  I honestly don´t know if she really in love. It looks like she has this idea of love and maybe she want to stick it with her parents. :wub:

 

I more into Na kyung story. 

 

maybe when there is the time leap i´m more into the leads.

exactly @joccu ; it is like she has read too many fairy tales, watched too many movies and has this idea that they will just fight for each other and everything will be magically alright. eye roll. 

 

at the same time, she is smart enough to know how her parents will react and start planning for her future independence. she is even shrewd enough to read jung min was really hurt by na kyung's words and assures him that na kyung is in love with him. so it is such a weird mix of naivete, childishness and shrewdness -- perhaps the actress isn't doing a good job of tying these really different parts of the character together. right now, it really does feel ji eun is more in love with being in love and yea, wants to stick it to her parents for trying to control her life.

 

na kyung feels like such an unpredictable plot line and so am curious too how it will turn out....

Okay - if that's the start of it, and the next 110 episodes are her learning about herself/love and then in the end figuring out how to love Se-Hoon unselfishly truly from the heart ... maybe it'll work

Agreed - although I'm getting a "hate all men/bane to all who try to love" vibe off her - I can see her coming back and trying to sabotage anyone who might just try and be happy.  Hope so - I love me a good villainess ( still shaking my head about what they did to MH in Fatal Promise )

was anyone else laughing when ji eun ran out in her bathrobe to meet sae hoon? ummm, maybe get dressed to dazzle him while you are arguing?

 

:lol: I was like ... will she ... it is a daily ... but will she still? 

 

 

Okay ... I'll keep watching

The drama looks OK so far, even though I never heard of the original one before. I was also wondering what's with the white streaks of hair :joy: they are so distracting. The drama looks "old" probably because the camera/lighting looks more dull in SBS dailies compared to KBS' dailies.
