For those that are not yet in the know, drama Penthouse has been one of the highest rated dramas in awhile, thanks to its dynamic, makjang addictive plotline. Where we left off, we discovered that Oh Yoon Hee (played by Eugene) was the person who murdered Min Seol Ah. However, eagled-eyed fans have come up with a prediction theory that could be the largest plot-twist in all of drama history ever.
Fans are casting the bold prediction that Oh Yoon Hee is a transgender. firstly, in promotional shots, all the women of Hera Palace are sitting down, while only Oh Yoon Hee is standing up alongside the men.
In a recent episode where Oh Yoon Hee’s DNA was tested, her chromosomes came out as XY, which indicates biological male gender.
Next, Oh Yoon Hee once sang a duet with her daughter – Farinelli‘s “The Castrato”. According to history, Farinelli was castrated when he was younger, thus becoming a soprano. The song itself, is named after the method of castrating a male opera singer before he reaches puberty to prevent the larynx from transforming, thus allowing the singer to move forward as a soprano.
In Greek mythology as well, the gods’ stories that have the themes of transgender include Iphis and Tiresias…with Hera mostly acting as the deity that blessed this change.
What do you guys think? Fluke or fact? Will this prediction come true?
