    Why do I like Park Dong Hoon? Because he's so unassuming and shy and humble that he doesn't seem to be aware of his own attractiveness and charm. He finds it weird that a young woman like Ji An would be interested, really interested, in him. At the same time, he finds it strange that the Board and the Chairman see his worth and Joon Young sees him as a threat. Makes me wonder if he married Kang Yoon Hee and decided to do his best to love her because he was so grateful that she wanted him at all. This man is like is not aware of his own worth and in a way, therein lies his charm.

    @sadiesmith hahaha! If that's "skimpily clothed" for PDH, I wonder how he would look like all wrapped up. But I do love PDH in those soccer scenes. He looks so natural. It's as if he's in his element, where he's supposed to be.

    Thank you for translating this interview, @justamom! This is such a treasure. We actually get to read their thoughts about the drama, their characters and each other. It's clear that LSK and LJE really like each other in real life and that came out in their acting. And the way they teased each other about why Lee Ji An liked Park Dong Hoon is just cute and adorable. I am once again amazed at their effortless chemistry. These two are just beautiful that I would want to see them together in another project. I totally ship them onscreen! Coz that's the farthest I can go. And again, I just want to commend them for such brilliant acting. They were totally immersed in their characters that their own personalities totally disappeared. MA has turned me into LJE's fan as an actress. As for LSK, I bow to his greatness.

    Annyeong to our new friends on board! Welcome to the MA Wonderland. Be warned, though. Once you've fallen down the rabbit-hole, it's not easy to return. Hehehe. Looking forward to fresh insights and discoveries from you guys.

    These interviews have infused life back into me! Just when I thought I've managed to wean myself from my MA addiction, something like this comes along. Oh well. There's no point in fighting it. As the Borgs used to say in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Resistance is futile.

    But where are the two people we want to see the most? I think LSK and LJE hang out with the rest of the cast (although not as often especially for LJE given her commitments as IU) but they probably have an agreement to keep those meetings under wraps to avoid further controversy. Hence, the strange lack of photos, even personal ones like this one in Oh Na Ra's IG. I mean, come on. It's just too weird that they all became close and keep in touch but everyone else hangs out together regularly except them.

    Hey there everyone! Everything seems to be quiet over in Japan. Has MA finished airing over there?

    Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop by and see if anyone's still here. Lo and behold! New analysis posts are coming in! Lots to read over the weekend.

    I've finished About Time. It was cute and fluffy and a good way to pass the time, but I don't expect it to be anything like MA. I tell myself to adjust my expectations so I can enjoy other dramas. It's like reading books. I can enjoy other books, but there will always be those few that will remain my favorites and which I re-read from time to time. I never get tired of them. Same thing with MA.

    Ji An looks so soft and feminine and demure in that scene. Nothing like the girl she used to be. Dong Hoon really affected her deeply. And he looks so blissfully happy to see her again. Transformative love indeed.

    @ninaanin agree. It's quite frustrating that the award-giving bodies in SK seem to focus more on quantity than quality. They seem to equate high ratings with high quality. This results in excellent shows like MA getting overlooked. I'm still hoping that it gets recognized, but with high-profile and big-budget dramas like Mr. Sunshine coming into the picture, I don't see it happening. Too bad because MA was such a good show and to me, Lee Ji An was LJE's breakout role. She deserves to be recognized for it. And of course LSK and the supporting cast.

    Hey everyone. This popped up on my YouTube homepage. Doesn't that girl in that artwork look familiar?

    That was one of those scenes that made me a fan of LSK. Nuanced acting at the highest level. His clenched fist was enough to convey the equivalent of so many lines of dialogue. And brilliant writing and directing too! Now, just imagine if there was a love scene written into this drama between PDH and LJA... With such writing, acting and directing, it would be one for the books! Too bad we never got that. Oh well.

    @widala not sure if I said this here before but all I can say to those advocates of a paternal relationship between PDH and LJA is this: i have a father and that's not how he looks at me.

    @sadiesmith not surprising. Moon Lovers was safe to discuss even after it ended. There was an age gap between her and Lee Joon Gi as well but it was set in the past. The way I see it, age gaps where the man is older seems acceptable to Korean viewers in sageuks but not in a drama with a modern setting. And especially not when the story is too realistic. And of course, ML didn't excatly detract from the public's perception of LJE as IU, the idol and nation's little sister. I do believe LJE doesn't post much about MA not because she doesn't want to. She clearly sees it as one of her great accomplishments. But I guess she's also trying to balance her actress image with her idol image. There are still some people, even her own fans, who may not yet be prepared for LJE the serious actress, which is what MA was all about. My own opinion though is that she should talk about it more. That way, she can help them get used to the idea and maybe even help those who were negative about it to appreciate MA.
