As long as he kisses her when she is still overweight and not skinny it's fine. I don't want the svelte looking thin female lead getting the guy. It will just perpetuate the pressure to be thin in South Korea. To be considered attractive.
You know I have watched Eugene's older drama- the one where she met her husband. Her acting then and now is the same. This is not about her acting. The characters are the same. Forgive me but she is a really passive character. For someone who's ambitous in her career- she is not aggressive enough in other areas of her life. For Hoon Jae- to hold onto her like this- based on what I've seen so far; Jin Ae is kind of boring. As a person. And tiring. As a girlfriend. Maybe some men like such quiet women but their dates are sure as heck boring. Do those 2 ever do anything besides sit down and talk? The writer showed him being in love but man- look at her? He was attracted to her initially so ok it's physical partly but subsequently JA is so boring. What are her interests in life? Can she talk about besides work and her family? What have they done together?
That's the thing that pisses me off every time DF wins a license to sub. They rush the subber and they never sub the lyrics. The PD in Korean dramas always take such care with the OST or any background music. Every time anyone who requires subtitles don't understand the lyrics- they miss so much nuance.
And needless to say I am peeved off as usual, the other party in the drama allows someone to walk off. Doesn't anyone know to stay for the hard times? Gives a bad image that people run when times are hard
Passing by as I am watching ep 4 for the 2nd time. I have to snicker. In a good way I absolutely adore this episode. Not only for this drama but how they dealt with a heavy than normal heroine. I can't recall a body scan scene in other dramas. But this... and then his expression. Pure gold * snicker * I've seen everything I should. Is there a reason for you to get embarrassed? And yeah the exercise scenes are more sexy than an outright kiss scene. I hope when he is more aware of her as a woman- that the writer and director make the scenes even funnier. And when he grabbed her collar saying her shirt was gaping when she grabbed him? Oh my giddy aunt- can someone fall for the other person fast? Cos' I really want to delay it yet want it to happen. I so prefer them sarcastic towards each other so much though. And can you fall for a guy after he basically say your eating habits causes you to be constipated? ADDIT- we need the BTS for the exercise scenes especially for the squats scenes. I am dying here rewatching it. Considering both SJS and SMN both do it to maintain their shapes.
God I basically love being on the viki team for this drama, more excuses to rewatch the scenes. Byeeeiii...
At this point I am so happy episode 4 is tonight. Not really interested in the other male leads at present- 6 packs or not. JE was totally adorable being so happy she was getting John Kim to train her. I can't help but laugh when she was punching the bear. At this point the heroine stands out more more. Even though I am a bit turned off by a hero being shown to be obviously feeling sorry for her. Or affected by her. Once they fall in love, it's hard to root for a male lead who's main draw or is written to be drawn to the underdog. What happens when the next underdog comes along?
I'm throwing any expectations out of the window after ep 3. I really enjoyed it. In fact the barcode joke is one of the funniest drunk joke scene I've ever seen anywhere. I laughed- cringed at it. In fact her drunken behaviour has been one of the funniest I've ever seen. Yi Seul is sweet. I wish she would get a nicer guy in the end. Even by Kdrama standards her mother is bitchy as. I cannot believe how vicious she is.
But booyah, wasn't expecting skinship so soon in ep 4. I nearly died. So that's why I am not going to whine or ask for stuff. Will just take what this drama offers. Could not believe how aggressive both JS and RH were in pursuing HA. I was seriously shocked.
Addit- I snuck a peek and saw the kiss. Gah. Haven't felt such butterflies in my stomach from a kdrama kiss for months and months. I've been used to such indecisive male leads that one who actually knows his mind is such a shocker.
Just finished the 2 episodes. No brain cells to analyze things to death. I like it it's more mature than I expcected. Less silly than I expected and directed with a nice pace.
All dramas are recycled plots anyway and as I quickly skimmed through the comments- it is not like some of the aforementioned old friends drama. Thank goodness for it, I actually disliked some of those. Golly gosh though they put in LJH as the 2nd male lead when I already normally like his acting. And it's unfair to put a guy who can't express his emotions well; trying to win his girl back. Then letting someone like LDW playing RH. Whon I am happy to see play a nicer guy although even I feel he is too interfering. He can sort out his feelings later as we all know the OTP is them. But darn it, I like the Director LSJ. Have to say the 2 second leads are making me feel sorry for them; that they are not going to end up with the main leads. I wish they could have their happy endings already. It's not fair the writer wrote them so likable. And I normally don't ship 2nd leads on any forums just in case you misunderstand I came here to moan. Good promising start. Been tired of not having dramas to watch lately.It is extremely nice to find actors in this role and not have to read about fan shipping. It has kept me out of so many posts. It has a plot, I like the actors, like the Indie music feel and have to say the directing is pretty seamless at present. That is a killer line " that he is sleeping with Haeng Ah". Now top that Ri Hwan. I laughed when I heard it. Score. that's a win for that round.
Sigh. I finished the episode. Can't work out why the writer is focusing on HJ and HR's relationship vs the OTP love line. I am pretty irritated they are focusing on the 2nd leads at present. It's not because I like any main actor especially. I am actually pretty ambivalent regarding all 4. However plot wise it doesn't make good writing sense. I understand enough without subs and it's only when the episode is especially good that I would bother rewatching it. It's true that HR and HJ were together for more years than she was with SJ. But damn- that was one sincere confession from him. Actually made me go wow- good lines. Perfect delivery. And then ×=/#/__/%$$## she goes and gives the stupid rationale. The guy already told you clear as day he can't see anyone else.
So yeah I am pretty peeved with this storyline. Especially since we're left hanging on an odd episode.
All you have to do is buy a hair straightener. Which my colleagues do all the time. And the higher cost will be the special concealer foundation. If burns victim and people with pigmentation problem can buy it, I don't see why she can't. And she already has the figure. What else does she need to spend on? A push up bra? She doesn't need it. Why would she need someone to help her?
I want to get a couple of things off my chest then I can ignore them. One isn't JA written as too ignorant if she subscribes to that one has to be single to be professionally successful? I feel as if the writer is insulting all career women.
Two, much as I like San's mother she is written as being so dense. She managed to survive as a single mother in Korea. Which is really hard but the writer has written her to be so dense and naive. It's not a really attractive look.
And San Ok's first daughter in law will be a single mother. Her 1st son in law will have a single mother. Her 2nd son will end up with a rich kid. And she will be double in laws with her 2 children's parents in law. And the 1st son's mom will be someone who used her.
Aigoo. Now you know why I needed to say " esh Korean dramas and it's clichés ". Then I can enjoy the rest of the other multiple episodes and created angsts.
Yes dear same person. What happened? I am always around but on viki. But no time for as much drama watching as before. Personal life priorities- family . And cutting down on viki projects the last year only channel managing or editing. However still following dramas via recap or fast forwarding. And yes forever a Joo Won fan. So of course I am here. And at times like this would just wake up early tomorrow and fast fw the episode. Ergh.
Well I have finished ep 8 so off to bed. The level of fan service is incredible. Haha... was too busy watching abs tonight. Doesn't LSY ever get tired of his body being exposed? It was stinking hot in Seoul don't know how the actors can wear suits.
