The cars in #MyLiberationNotes : symbols of liberation or alienation - a thread 🧵 #SonSukKu #KimJiWon #LeeMinKi #LeeEl
When we 1st met ChangHee, he’s asking to his father the permission to take a loan to get a car, so the siblings could stop commuting everyday by train. But Yeom dad refuses bc Chang Hee was unable to pay for his previous car #MyLiberationNotes
For Chang Hee, not having a car is an obstacle to his love life, as he can’t go wherever he wants so easily. As a single man living at his parents’ house, it’s also the only place he could have some intimacy #MyLiberationNotes
But not having a car wasn’t the reason for his breakup with his gf : Chang hee wasn’t confident enough in himself, & dumped his gf before being dump. #MyLiberationNotes
Yeom daddy doesn’t have a car neither, only his truck. He couldn’t afford 1 bc he was broke due to his own sister. The family never got a car and never went on vacation, until eomma’s death #MyLiberationNotes
When Yeom dad talked to Gu about the sink business, he told he could make big money and have a fancy car. And when Yeom dad has been humiliated by his rich neighbor (who gardened the field next to his), he chased him & his fancy car in his old truck…but failed #MyLiberationNotes
When Gu lended his Rolls Royce to Chang Hee, he was the happiest man ever, bc it was a luxurious car he couldn’t dream of. He even went camping in his own. The car was the tool of his momentary liberation, until he had to give it back #MyLiberationNotes
Chang Hee was proud to drive gu’s car while Yeom daddy can’t stand to see his son boasting in a fancy car, urging him to return it. Yeom daddy was very uncomfortable by this luxurious car none of them could afford #MyLiberationNotes
What could have thought yeom when he found out it was Gu’s car, his silent/alcoholic/apparently broke employee ? It may have hurt his feelings bc at the end of his day, yeom’s efforts aren’t enough & don’t’ pay him back #MyLiberationNotes
When Tae Hun invites GiJeong to a date, he’s late bc he has to park his car elsewhere. 🚘 is a burden for those living in big cities bc there’s no place to park them.She also refuses he gives him a ride home, bc she knows that it’ll become a burden for him #MyLiberationNotes
When Gu discovers the RR has been damaged, he’s so pissed he’s running like an Olympic athlete to catch Chang hee and got in the train back to Seoul. Gu left his former life (and all the fancy stuff) by taking the train to sanpo. The car scratch was the impulse #MyLiberationNotes
Which is ironic & paradoxical bc gu left all the confort of his former life to find the meaning of his life in a labour in countryside, where he finally got some peace of mind #MyLiberationNotes
After eomma’s death, the yeom family went to a sea trip with a car. First time they were all together, sharing memories & thoughts about family. It was the 1st and only time we got to see them happy and opening to each other #MyLiberationNotes
In his fancy life, gu doesn’t drive anymore. He’s got a driver. And thank god considering the daily amount of alcohol he’s drinking. The richer he’s, the more miserable he’s #MyLiberationNotes
When gu finally met mi Jeong after 3 years in #MyLiberationNotesEp15, he’s forced to leave her bc of job duties. Stuck in the traffic, he’s getting out of the car, and he runs like an Olympic athlete so he can get back to her as soon as possible. #MyLiberationNotes
Now that Chang hee lives in Seoul, has his own convenience store, he’s biking to go see the mountains in his neighborhood. No more car is needed. But he hasn’t been liberated, as he collapsed thinking of the failure of his rs with HyeonA #MyLiberationNotes
Cars in #MyLiberationNotes aren’t help or an obstacle. It’s more about the symbolism it represents. For Chang hee & his dad it was the symbol of their failures. For gu, it was his meaningless life.The liberation is a journey each one must take whatever the forms it takes.

I really had high hopes for #TheRedSleeve at the #BaeksangArtsAwards2022 . Congrats to #LeeJunHo for best actor & popularity award : this amazing actor has finally his season! He’s getting what he deserved for #JustBetweenLovers .Even if every nominee deserved to win, I can’t ….
…help to be disappointed for #TheRedSleeve cast & god Ji In. I wanted them to get the #BaeksangArtsAwards2022 recognition they deserved for all the joy (& pain) they brought to us. I’m specially disappointed for #LeeSeYoung . Even if I knew she could miss the best actress award.
I really wanted her to have it (don’t misunderstand me: Kim TaeRi nailed it as Hee Do). Because #LeeSeYoung is such a dedicate & passionate actress, I wanted to see that her efforts haven’t betrayed her. For someone who almost quit acting, this award would have been the proof…

#TheRedSleeve challenge : the poem North wind from the book of odes #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo #BaeksangArtsAwards2022 #BaeksangArtsAwards
The book of odes plays a main role in #TheRedSleeve. It’s one of san’s favorite book. He offered it to Deok Im when they went together to the bookstore. She would read the poem during his lockdown and then let the book in his room, despite Yeongjo’s orders #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
The Book of odes (Shih-ching) is the oldest existing collection of Chinese poetry, comprising 305 works dating from the 11th-7th centuries BC, said to have been compiled by Confucius. It has been studied and by scholars in China over two millennia #TheRedSleeve

#TheRedSleeve challenge : peak comedy scene - court ladies maids can be really frightening #BaeksangArtsAwards2022 #Baeksang #BaeksangArtsAwards #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
As i said many times before, what of the best aspects of #TheRedSleeve is the author’s ability to mix comedy & drama genres.
It loosened up the atmosphere when things may become too heavy. #LeeSeYoung #LeeJunHo
In this scene, Deok Im has been gone for a while at the queen’s palace (the number 1 rival of San). Plus San has seen Deok Ro & Deok Im in the middle of the night very close to each of other…So, San, jealous, is pissed off and no court lady maid want to be near him #TheRedSleeve

#TheRedSleeve challenge : *seduction course 101 by royal guard * aka how San is so desperate with Deok Im that he’s asking for the royal guard’s tips #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
One of the (many) strengths of #TheRedSleeve script , is the writer’s hability to mix in the same episod pure comedy with pure tragedy (so we can laugh & cry, except ep17 which was 💯😭).
San being quite desperate after so many refusals from Deok Im, is asking for help from his faithful royal guard’ advice! The royal guard is one of the best character of #TheRedSleeve. It’s an invented character that brings humor & lightness to the story

It’s an historical fact that JeongJo was an excellent archer (one of the best archer of Joseon along with king Taejo, the general who founded the dynasty) #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
When Deok Im confessed to her friends that the man she loves is neither a scholar or a warrior, it’s rather true & false at the same time. True bc San was the crown prince, false as he had both exceptional intellectual & physical abilities #TheRedSleeve #LeeJunHo #LeeSeYoung
