This is also my opinion: SR will get enough evidence to put HK in jail, she can together with TS and JR even frame something, and she will blackmail JE into marrying her: if he doens't marry him she puts HK in jail. To me it is the only way for her to get JE.
I'm not sure if you are refering to my post, if not just ignores me However if it was, I would like to clarify that I wasn't blaming the actors, I was just saying that I didn't know if the lack of tension was due to the performance, not romantic chemistry or PD-nim concious direction/intension. On the other hand, I don't think it is unfair to say that actors don't deliver the performance that viewers judged it was required from them (in the Reply series or any other drama/film/play), this is just a point of view that viewers have the right to express (it can be more or less qualified critic if this is more or less professional critic, but each point of view is valid, imo, if it is expressed in respectfull ways). I think that critical judgement of actors/actresses performance is implied (or even necessary) in their profession. And people can disagree about their evaluation about a given performance. And I think that the fun in a forum comes from the difference of opinions.
Wow how can you express so well what I was thinking/feeling this morning (it still morning here)? This is precisely what I feel: there is no "sexual tension" between DS and JH. It is true that we can see it in JH, but till now it feels to me totally unrequited. For, DS just doesn't send any "sexual vibe" when with JH, imo. I don't know if it is PD or wiriter's intention; if it is because there isn't a "romantic chemistry" between the actors (because there is friendship chemistr); or if it is because the actrees can't perform it.The fact is that what appear to me is that DS isn't remotely romanticaly interested in JH. Me too, I was making comparison with DS and the girl from 1997 version. I only watched the first two episodes, but I remember (I don't know if it was in ep 1 or 2), there was a scene when the guy was washing something at school (?), shirtless and by "accident" they came real closed and I could see/feel that the girl was flustered, that there was "sexual tension", and to me I took it as a sign he would be the husband. But now, in every scene (particularly bus-shirt, bus-protection and close-street) DS looked more amused towards JH than flustered. I was expecting that those last two episodes would show the begining of hints that DS is unconsciously attracted to JH, but nope! As you said, there isn't any consequency from each cute thing that JH did, which remembers me that in 1994 it happaned the same with CB. DS choosing Taek's gloves only shows to me that at that moment, the friend she wants to show her gratitude was Taek, not because she is romanticaly interested in him, but because the manito game. Finally, I was asking myself this morning: is it really necessary that DS marries one of her friends? Wouldn't it be more interesting if the five stays as the five friends? Unfortunally, the writing couldn't still bring to me the necessary elements to be invested in DS romantic life with any of the guys. The consequency: I don'/can't ship her with none of them.
Hi, May I say something? From what I got, I think it was the other way though: when people begun to "hope" more about Taek it seems someone was worried about war ship, due I think the fact that it is pretty obvious who the husband is: JH (as it seems clear to me). But maybe I've got it wrong, 'cause my english limitations . Anyway, I think most people till now are being very tolerant and respectfull, maybe because the chance of Taek being the husband so small, that even those who are Taek-DS shippers are very mild in their ship expression; and their hope is also small (that is my interpretation!). I think most Taek fans only hope now that he won't be a CB reload
Welcome Me too I'm more interested in BR-SW story. I think they have great chemistry and I like both characters About Taeks, if I'm not wrong, Taek didn't read the name of his santa. He put the paper in his pocket and went away. Later on, after he thanked DS for the gift hint, when at home he put his hand in his pocket and remembered about the whole santa thing. So, he didn't know she was his santa until then. I think it is natural for Taek that he only remembered the paper and the whole santa thing at that moment. But, I agree with you that I'm not sure if Taek has a crush on DS. If he has, I think that it isn't realy strong right now, that his father and baduk are way more important than her and he won't be very disappointed if she has a crush on another guy.
Please, anyone who can understand korean could be really nice to me and translates SW-BR's dialogues, particularly the umbrella and gift ones? I'm just dying to know what they are saying. I loved Bora's body expression on the "gift dialogue" lol realy funny. She seemed to want to die of shame lol. SW and Bora are the couple that I'm most invested, besides the families' dynamics. Right now, I have no doubts the end game for the main couple will be DS-JH. It looks like this time the hunting husband plot was only a troll that the writers put in the firsts episodes, just to make the connection with the first and second season. I have now mixt feelings, on one hand I'm relieved because we won't have any stress lol; on the other hand the romance devellopment of the main couple lost a great deal of its charms to me. Yeah, I think they are really cute, but not very interesting any more. I know I sound contradictory but it is how I feel. I hope the writers will bring my full attention to them in the nexts episodes.
Hi I think that the difference of our opinions rests in the fact that we see JE in a different light. To me, the writer has satisfactorily shown that JE is sorry, remorsefull, ashamed, feels guilty. And I see many qualities beyond JE's affair and hence reasons why she can accept him back and will keep loving him; the same way I see many flawed things in HK beyond her "betrayed wife status", which can make her feels also guilty about the whole marriage debacle. Sure, from pardon doens't necessarely follows acceptance (and I think that in my real life I will never acept a come back); but I'm talking about what I see as HK's characterisation and in my opinion, from the way she is depict, it will be really in character if she forgives and accepts JE back. I'm not making a moral judgement, I only think that following the way I interprets her character I see a big room for acceptance and rebuilding of trust. About the affair, I think I also interpret it in a different light, altough we all agree that it was (to keep it short) a sin. But I think I had already explained my way to approache it in one of my first post. But, be one night stand or pursuit, I don't think it will make difference HK (the way I read her characterisation), she will suffer the same way in any case when she get her memory back, however she will forgive and engage on a rebuilding of their marriage. But I understand why you don't agree with my point of view . You can't relate to JE while I can. I need not say that I can relate to him as a character, I don't believe I will be able to relate to him if he would be a real person. Yet he isn't the only one: there are inumerous characters (almost perfect in their moral values) and very romantic heroes that I can enjoy and relates when watching or reading their stories but will never like to live with them . We at least can agree to desagree Bye and good night. It's time to sleep here!
I don’t know why HK would hate JE the moment she remembers the affair. I don’t know why she will necessarely want to “break up” with him. If HK stays in character (be it HK, YK2 or HK after YK2), she will soon or later pardon JE. Of course she will be enraged and re-experience every suffering from the past, it won’t be an easy path, but she will overcome it, because HK or Yk2 or YK2-HK wants to love JE. Yes she doesn’t know if old HK loves/loved JE after the affair, but with the memories of the affair she will get also the memories that then again she wanted/chose to keep loving JE (it is what was shown, if she came back to say to JE it’s over, this is speculation, there is no evidence to sustain it; one could easily say that she wanted to see him one last time, even at distance or she wanted to make a last effort to make him come back, or another reason). She wanted to love him in the past (I think that she willingly waiting for him is a sign that she was still in love with him and was prepared to keep on loving him), in spite of the affair and the suffering. She wants to love him in the present, in spite of: her dislike over/ repulse of cheaters; she knows he cheated on his wife; she knows he was during 4 years with SR (and contrary to us she must think that he lived in a marital way all that time [I myself think that the physical relationship didn’t last more than few months, but certainly/and logically they had sex]); she asked him directely why he cheated on his wife if he loved her; she showed him all her rage and disgust because he cheated on his wife; she knows her/his wife tried to commit suicide because of the affair/separation; she knows she is his ex-wife, and hence that he cheated on her. She wants to love him in spite of not knowing what happened with her daughter, her part in it and the consequencies of it in their marriage. So, imo, if HK stays in character she will noot break up with him. The more if she is this soft and compassionate new HK, with this great heart. Sure, things won’t be easy, but what I think is, now, both JE and HK have really clearly in their minds what they want: stay together, love each other. The difference between the past and the present is that both are willingly to try together, to make overtures, to be open about their true feelings, their love, pain, hatred, sufferings. Both knows now (JE) and soon (HK) what they lost. There is one only thing that can make a marriage or relationship rekindle and/or last: both partners wishing and having disposition to try hard and make things work. It isn’t an easy process and there will be sure many moments of pain and guilty and accusation. But if they think it is worth, they have sure a better chance to succeed. And, imo, both JE and HK (even with memory recovered) will try hard to succeed, because I believe both think this is worth. So, my guess: 70% - end JE-HK; 30% both JE and HK without partner.
I have one question and few impressions (I use here impressions to highlight the fact that it is most subjective and not really based on strong evidences). But, first, I would like to say that: 1. I think that the husband will be JH; 2. I think that the collor theory is PD trolling us, but it is really really enjoyable, and I think it is as if PD besides giving to us the drama’s story gives also a game to play; 3. I’m not shipping DS with any of the guys (but I’ve a slightly preference towards DR only because it will be very funny and surprisingly, imo). 1. The question is about the house’s map. If Taek’s house has a red roof, Taek’s collor wouln’t be definitively red? As in the case of JH’s roof house being green and according to the theory his collor is green. 2. My impressions: In regards to screen time – plot devellopment – male lead. To me, from eps. 1 and 2 I got the impression that SW was the main guy; from eps. 3 and 4 I had the certainty that JH was/is the main guy; from ep. 5 I will conclude that it is a neutral episode in regards to main guy, because the focus was in the mother relationship, but given the recall from eps. 3 and 4, JH kept his main guy status to me; from ep. 6 it feels to me as it a major twist happenend putting Taek in the front: if I had begun to watch this drama from ep. 6 I will definitively think Taek is the main guy. In regards to the collor theory. I can’t say much about eps. 1 and 2 because I really didn’t pay attention. However, in eps. 3 and 4 it seems to me that the two strongst collors (those who were more proeminents) were yellow and green, sometimes together in three with red. But, in most of the frames yellow and green appeared paired, as a simbolic couple lol. However, from eps. 5 I think there is a shift, and what I perceived (or got the impression) is that red becomes more evident together with yellow. For exemple: when DS is doing some kind of body exercice, the ground is yellow and red. Also, when DS’s dad and Taek’s dad are talking outside the store, the letters behind the former are red, and the letters behind de latter are yellow (lol I can’t put pics here). But what is sure is the main collors are green, yellow and red – therefore if Taeks is the second contender, makes sense that he is red. In regards to DS saying “drink your milk, and when you grow up I will marry you” lol. I only take this as a joke (lol). She wasn’t meaning it and to me it only shows she sees him at that moment as a kid, not boyfriend material lol. Also, when mother and DS are talking about how mother would like to have Taek as a son-in-low, the whole scene to me appeared as joke: both mother and daughter were joking, in special because both think Taek is only interested in baduk and mother think DS can’t seduce him lolol (I really laugh hard here) – but maybe I’m wrong due to problems with translation. Well, everything above is only my contribution to the game. As I said, more impressions than evidences lol. I still believe that JH is the husband. But I also believe that if there is a reply’s edition that gives more room to a twist in the husband hunting it is this ’88 edition.
lol Where is the lol button when we need it? lol Don't worry, my DR as hubby theory is only a delusional exercise lol. I don't believe at all in it lol. To me it is JH. Serious now, I don't ship DS with nobody. What I think great in R series is the fact that the guys and girls are all good and awesome guys/girls in their own way. There aren't any jerk character. And I think it is better depict now because we can see more of each character. So I think that DS or any girl will be luck to marry one of those guys. They all know what friendship, supporting, respect, sharing and caring is. Therefore, they all will know how to love dearly their wives. Of course they will do it according to their own personality. Although I don't ship DS with an specific guy and I really believe JH will be the husband, from an "intriguing and unexpected" narration point of view, it will be more interesting to me if the husband wouldn't be JH. I think it would bring a fresh air to R series and inovates. I don't think it would be difficult if the writer uses well the fact that DS doesn't love anyone yet (I'm not talking about SW, but the real contenders), the writers could really play this card and surprises us. But, I really doubt that s/he would dare to do that.
Well present Bora doesn't use it at all. So, today it is really easy to replace glasses with lens and there are really safe eyes surgeries to "cure" bad eyes. Back then I believe lens and that kind of surgeries weren't commun or at least it wasn't cheap. But as I said, I was being "delusional" about DR being the husband. However, to me, it is really fun to play the game.
