kakashi: People are actually googling this, you know. It really seems to be a hot topic in the Dramverse. I am feeling quite lucky I haven't watched this show, with all the outrage out there for how it's ended. But PPL spotting? Count me in.
PPL in Gu Family Book Episode 24
Let's walk through and see what there is to see!
We open the scene with an awesome panorama of all the things valuable to House of Gu (GoT ref. #2) and the first of many (oh my so many) PPL items.
The Phone (Samsung): This is normal, regular ppl. Samsung basically = telephones when it comes to South Korea. Expected. They even found a way to get a samsung in a sageuk in Faith. Aww he saved her flower! I'm not even going to think about how he would have kept it alive for 400+ years!
That's an easy one, yes. I've seen so many Samsung Galaxy phones product-placed in KDrama, I recognize them in my sleep. But what about the vase? PPL as well? Not that anyone would want to buy it ... it's UGLY.
Herbal Medicine: I've seen this one too. PPL for some miraculous herbal medicine. The first time I watched this I was just excited to see the old master looking healthy and plump. Did they make him lose weight for the role? He's so dedicated to his craft. The light shining off the gold bath fixtures makes me wonder if that was PPL too.
Oh, wonderful, miraculous herbal medicine. I NEED IT! And what's with LSG and bubble baths? Is that PPL too? I.e. for bubbles? Or, as you suspect, bathtubs?
