The "Viki Original" you haven't seen yet

Bad Weddings–a family drama on tvN for sure!

The Locksmith–who better to star in it than Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook?

Lots of shrieking and near misses on the Autobahn!


For Bad Weddings I’d prefer

Finally want to see if he can do comedy - maybe i’ve missed that so far

Or maybe

would also be the right age. Or

in a modern play.

But how easy will it be to find excellent actors for the sons-in-law?

As far as The Locksmith is concerned … Lee Dong Wook can play arrogant types, perhaps alternative ones can still be found.
But much more important would be the casting of the SML I can’t think of any at the moment. Matthias Schweighöfer is marvelous, Milan Peschel is outstanding.


OH NO! The word “doom” and the words “panel truck” . . . now reality will absolutely collapse!

we’re going to have to have both um (whispers into cupped hand) Seo In Guk and Namgoong Min.

@spaufler_89 has just guaranteed that @kdrama2020ali will deafen the entire community and Viki will fall into a black hole of SQUEEEEE . . . !


Perfect concept for Viki, Eoni! (I don’t need to hear as long as the subs are good.)


What did I do? :hushed:


OH NO WHAT did I DO?? @spaufler_89 I’m not sure what you did???

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH she knows I’ll have a new topic or HOTTIE posse MEMBER!

I promise I see the DEPTH in shows and not just the HOTTIE - I have totally talked about the depth of DOOM - and his hotness but I digress :fire::fire:

But I need clarification - for what naughtiness I did now


Oh, dear, I apologize. You did nothing. The Discussion board format makes it very hard to follow the conversations in a thread for me, and I pointed the finger a you for introducing the concept of the White Truck of Doom in your version of “The ‘Viki Original’ you haven’t seen yet.”

But your idea was the remake of two “foreign” films which definitely has promise for people who want to laugh at complexity and not run screaming out of the room when the “cliff-hanger” at the end of a typical K-drama ep comes along.

Sorry for confusion. Biyanheyo. Or is it Mianhaeyo? OH NO! The demon of transliteration is in the penthouse walking around looking like Sean Richard!!!

More confusion in trying to sort out confusion! Am I “doomed”???


The subber I meant to point out as using the “D” word in this thread was @vivi_1485 and her scenario with a “White Truck of Doom driver.” Because, you know what happens when that word gets mentioned.

It doesn’t diminish my gratitude for having a chance to see Seo In-guk in a new light.

If it weren’t for your thread about DAYS, I would have passed it right by since the last K-drama I saw with Seo In Guk was Hello, Monster/I Remember You. His acting was amazing, but the character and the story line were too much for me to process. Psychological thrillers give me nightmares.

Plus by the time I discovered him as an actor at all, I had found my groove with lawyer and doctor shows, spy thrillers, and saeguk.

And I did not know he could sing. Because some K-drama male celebrities have not risen through the ranks on the basis of smooth vocal talent.

But I do need to be protective of my hearing, so keep it down, would ya?

I have to be able to listen to my inspiring saeguk themes . . .

It actually sounds like biyaneyo a lot. But it is 미안 해요 - mian haeyo.

I listened to two different videos online where native speakers who also speak English teach students how to pronounce different “basic greetings.” One of the speakers clearly says a “b” sound at the start of the word, and one says an “m” sound.

It’s the same with “deh” and “neh.” Does it have to do with regional dialects? You know the minute you hear a K-drama character calling his or her granny “Helmoi,” her or she is from way the heck out in the country.


It’s spelled in hangul as “ne” and “mianhe” but you can say it both ways. The ‘m’ and ‘b’ sounds are really similar.
The ‘n’ and soft ‘d’ sounds can be interchanged in multiple words. So can the ‘r’ and ‘l’(with rules).

Time to freshen up the topic:

My Roommate is a Gummibear

Important questions to consider:

ML? FL? Genre? Include Sean Philip or not?

Have an entire K-pop, J-pop, C-pop, T-pop band transported back in time to 25 BCE?

Scary CGI or Hello Kitty CGI?

Kisaeng vs Geisha clog fight?

Remember, this has to be really, really original . . .



Here is your OST! bahahahahaha!
(the most annoying song on the Planet)

It will go viral faster than Gangnam Style, dontcha think?



This is my Gangnam Style…Lee Suk is much more FUN!
Makes me smile!

Me thinks we don’t want kdrama2020ali writing a “Viki Original” I’d have all the HOT-TIES - BUSY on one drama!


I can totally see Lee Jong Suk in green fleece footie pajamas.

“But what about me?”

The hotties keep sneaking into threads where they don’t belong when they should be minding their own business!

What’s that? Oh, sorry. Yes, they ARE minding their own business. Cause they are entertainers.

But there are the hotties, and then there are the cuties. All hotties are cuties, but all cuties are not necessarily hotties . . . because their super powers are not at full maturity yet.

Well, okay . . . I guess it’s okay if the hotties drop in, because someone has to give the young ones something to aim for . . .

Oops my fault! Just kick me off the thread…I spread the Cutie Pie Love Everywhere
It’s like fairy dust!
Running back where I belong…hahahahaha

(I really need to stop eating chocolate)

Kick her off, she says. Every time a new thread starts, there’s some new gaggle of guys she manages to get in the door. What do you think this thread is? A coffee shop? Are you getting a discount for filling up the tables?



Enter the Coffee Princes

OK I promise I’ll be Good! :smiling_imp:

(by the way you make me laugh which is good)
