Honestly, it was a very smart decision to make Mr. Greg a musical episode. Musicals can get away with a lot of things, and they save a lot of time; through the songs, you get to know, concisely, how the character is feeling, and what are they thinking, without having to make them talk to someone about it.
Musicals can get away with a tremendous amount of exposition without making it look awkward, can make the emotional moments hit without wasting too much time, and can establish an entire character in less than 2 minutes. It’s brilliant.
Now, take Pearl’s solo, for instance. She didn’t want to talk about these things with anyone, but it would also be odd to just have her monologuing all of it to herself. A musical is the perfect solution.
I’m kind of annoyed it’s leaked, especially since it’s supposed to be watched on April fools day. But… with all the untagged spoilers that will be on tumblr, it’s hard to wait for it without having it ruined.
Total props to those who resist.
If you do watch it then remember to tag your spoilers and to watch it on TV on Monday too in order to help support the show :)
“제이크가 실종되기 전에 내가 월남국수 면이 질기다고 말했어요. 아, 내가 왜 그런 말을 했을까. 무슨 나쁜 일이 생겼으면 어떡해! 걔가 만든 국수 맛없다고 한 게 우리의 마지막 대화였어요. (I told him that his Vietnamese noodles were too tough before he went missing. Why did I say such a thing! What if something bad happens to him! The last conversation we had was that his noodles are bad.)”
“미안해요. 내가 국수를 너무 많이 먹었나 봐요. (Sorry. Guess I’ve taken too much noodle.)”
“그놈이 칼을 들고 덤비면 어떡해요! (What if he attacks you with a knife!)”
“그놈이 공주님을 해치려고 하면요! (What if he tries to hurt you!)”
“아.. 맞아요. 내가 걱정이 좀 심한 편이죠. 저는 반 살은 시체들이 우리집을 공격하는 악몽에 시달려요. 우리 삼촌, 외숙모, 사촌들이 다 집에 있었어요. 저 위층에서 우는 소리까지 생생히 들린다니까요! 우리 가족들을 지킬 수만 있다면.. 그 꿈꾸는 동안 얼마나 스트레스를 받으면 이빨까지 무지하게 갈아요! (이빨을 감) 다음날 일어나면 이빨들이 금 가 있어요! 보통 전 그냥 그런 것 꿈이려니, 내가 걱정을 사서 하지 않나 하면서 잊어버리려고 해요. 제가 그 반 살은 시체들에게 두 번이나 공격당했었잖아요. (That’s right. I’m little bit too worrying sometimes. I always got haunted by the nightmare that half-dead corpses attacking my house! My uncle, aunt-in-law, cousins were all present, I even hear the crying coming from the upstairs. I just wished that I could protect my family.. I become too stressful during that dream, I even grind my own teeth badly! (Grinds teeth) When I wake up in the morning, all my teeth are cracked! I usually try to forget about it, thinking that it’s just a dream or I’m being paranoid, but I was actually attacked by these half-dead corpses before, twice!)”
In the dark room:
“으으, 잘 안 보이네. (It’s hard to see things)”
“뭐에요? (What was that?)”
“으! 아아! 그만해! 도와줘요! (Ahh! Stop it! Help!)”
“공주님 무기들! (Your weapons!)”
“공주님 저 땀나게 만드시네요. (You’re making me sweat.)”
“와, 이 방은 예쁜 새 소리에 대한 내 사랑보다 더 크네! (Wow. This chamber is bigger than my love for pretty birds’ song!)”
“으, 네. 걱정 마세요. 저 완전, 완전 괜찮아요. 자, 가요. 일어납시다!(넘어짐) 으, 안되겠네. 혼자 가세요. 전 짐만 될 뿐이에요. (Eh, Yeah, don’t worry about me. I’m perfectly, perfectly fine. Let’s go, get up!(Falls down) Ew. Not gonna make it. You should go alone, I’m just a burden for you.)”
Back at the castle :
“괜찮아요. 비밀로 한 제가 잘못이죠. (It’s fine. That was my bad for hiding it.)”
“자기야, 나 완전 중요한 할 말 있어. 나, I’m pregnant! (Honey, I’ve got something terribly important to tell you. I, I’m pregnant!)“
