Couple of Fantasy - Netflix

Based on the 1987 American movie Overboard, Couple of Fantasy is about Anna Jo, who is a rude, feisty, and audacious American-bred heiress who can never be satisfied. She returns to Korea only to continue being a controlling wife to her already cowardly husband, Billy Park. When her yacht gets stuck for repairs, she hires local handyman Jang Chul Soo to fix her shower, but when they have a heated spat over her dissatisfaction and non payment, she pushes him overboard and dunks his tools into the ocean right along with him. Later, after a quarrel with Billy that threatens to end their marriage, she herself gets drunkenly pitched overboard and falls victim to a bad case of amnesia.

Couple of Fantasy - Carny - Netflix

Carny, also spelled carnie, is an informal term used in North America for a traveling carnival employee, and the language they use, particularly when the employee plays a game (“joint”), food stand (“grab” or “popper”), or ride at a carnival. The term “showie” is used synonymously in Australia.

The carny vocabulary is traditionally part of carnival cant, a secret language. It is an ever-changing form of communication, in large part designed to be impossible to understand by an outsider. As words are assimilated into the culture at large, they lose their function and are replaced by more obscure or insular terms. Most carnies no longer use cant, but some owners/operators and “old-timers” still use some of the classic terms. In addition to carny jargon, some carnival workers used a special infix (“earz” or “eez” or “iz”) to render regular language unintelligible to outsiders. This style eventually migrated into wrestling, hip hop, and other parts of modern culture. The British form of fairground cant is called “Parlyaree”.
