My jaw dropped over Flower of Evil’s beginning… I actually thought a part of the video was cut out because it just starts with the ML tied up and drowning, and the FL saving him… and the very next scene moves on to some MAJOR kissing I just sat there going “Heol! I usually wait for at least 10 episodes before we get a fish kiss and here—”
The director won a Baeksang so you know the directing’s gonna be good.
can’t remember any other surprising beginnings… though I remember Dr. Romantic’s first episode was so fast-paced it left me breathless. And Lawless Lawyer’s first episode finished in no time for me… had a wild beginnning.
@vivi_1485, Flower of Evil, Dr, Romantic, and Lawless Lawyer are all super suggestions for a “Badger Productions” opening.
One is rooted in personal trauma, one is rooted in community trauma, and one is rooted in political/economic trauma.
One guarantees an “ugly cry,” one guarantees tears of pity, cheers of admiration, and cries of outrage; one guarantees placing an episode on pause, going to the bathroom, gathering snax, finding that comfy blankie, snuggling into the couch, and waiting to see how the good guys bend the law to the breaking point to get justice for the little guy.
Sounds like these ideas can go to the producer’s office. Though we must walk carefully down the hall lest we disturb the director who’s just come in from a night shoot and is sound asleep, stretched out on the conference room table. (And who is that sleeping under the table with a teddy bear, oozing BBF and CBF?)
I volunteer you as director. It seems a natural fit.
Ooh, I’m honored! I personally think I would do a better job as screenwriter, but I’d love to try my hand at directing!
There are quite a few dramas under way that fell to ruin because of lack of creativity and participation… let’s revive them!
@vivi_1485, if things are kept short and sweet instead of endless and experimental, then it will allow for participation by @kdrama2020ali who has more pressing imaginary (er, imaginative) issues . . .
It takes a lot of time and effort to lovingly folding idol sweaters into travel bags, buy boxes of red ginseng tonic, and send hotties off on imaginary (do excuse me, I mean imaginative) drives to windswept coastlines and day shoots . . . virtual personal assistants never have a virtual personal life.
Once a decision is made about the direction of the opening scene, then perhaps the nature of the ML and FL can be determined as well as the quotes that need to issue meaningfully from their mouths (before and after lip lock, which I do believe should occur within two minutes from the 00:00 time stamp, during the opening theme if possible).
See you in the producer’s office! Of course we have to let them know we’re coming!
This reminds me of our school trips All the girls would pack enough snacks for everyone and the boys would provide the entertainment. It was a wonderful example of co-existence
Of course, we didn’t do it because the guys were handsome they’re like brothers to us.
Hey! Your promotion could not have come easy, from a fangirl to a virtual assistant. Humph! What am I doing with my life?
Based on the open call currently going, you’ll likely get a tap for another promotion. A-hem! At the very least, do a Legally Blond Witherspoon, and show 'em your credentials. (◠‿◕)
Ummmh. . . I’d rethink that, why do I see housewives in training? Gender biased roles. Did the guys at any given time, provide the snacks for everyone, and the girls the entertainment? ijs Not to take away from your happy memory, by all means retain it!
I don’t remember it as a gender bias… we were all too afraid of getting on our teachers’ bad sides and knew how to behave. The “entertainment” is the boys doing stupid things without realizing the consequences and getting punished We were obviously way smarter… enjoy the fun while it lasts and slink away when they get caught.
That’s the thing… I don’t think boys think much when they’re that age. While we plan everything and make sure we never go hungry or get uncomfortable, they just bring whatever and suffer later. My brother does the same thing… we always end up having to buy things for him when we’re on vacation because he “forgot” to get them. He always has his tiny backpack half-filled while I carry a whole overflowing suitcase.
