    [Drama 2018] My Mister, 나의 아저씨

    have eyes issues! can't get on internet for too long. terrible head ache and eye strain! But can't help but get on My Ajusshi…. dr order or not! so a few minutes per day can't hurt! hahaha @justamom wonders what this reader was telling about the restaurant. at that time back in 2000, I actually tried to believe those people at the restaurant were in fact father-daughters, to give them the benefit of the doubt. beside it wasn't any of my business.... but those working with me, were very nosy, so I insisted that they were indeed parent-children. In any case in Korea many working ajummas obviously prefer story about Bab-noona, and such stories because that is their fantasies...as @bernie said. Life however is different as seen by my example above.... there were a lot of fathers-daughters at the restaurant, but no mother-son!

    Years ago, after finishing a hiking trip with a group of my people, we ate at an upscale mexican restaurant in a very upscale beach front area..... What was striking (besides the various shiny foreign cars that drove in for valet parking) were the clientelle which included mostly fathers and young daughters! This reader guess that most of these fathers are widowers.... Some of my people were making disparate comments about these couples..... so this reader told them "no, they are probably father-daughters coming to eat together, what is wrong with that!". This reader was convinced of this... although it was a little bid difficult reconciling that some of these father-daughter are not of even of the same race! For some reason, my people were not too convinced! So the Ahjummas can dream on while they do the dishes!

    They are young so they like the new drinks....that may be good. May be one of those girl will pull an old stodgy dinosaur engineer into modern time! a cup of americano for Engineer Dong Hoon please! that would go well with his blue suit! hahaha. @t123han may try a Korean sageuk drama The Princess Man from 2012? It involves 1 of 2 violent periods near the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty.... One can say that it is a Korean Romeo and Juliet story. It's quite engrossing... especially around episode 8 and 9 when they planned the coup d'état. This reader always marvel at how they manage to overthrow the government with only 200 men! You will probably like the Romeo and Juliet part of it. @h2ogirl you like sageuk drama... did you watch this one?

    @h2ogirl said YH and DH's choice of drinks symbolizes their different worldviews / values. YH = coffee = modern, Western values (like individualism, small family) DH = buckwheat tea = traditional, Korean values (like tribalism, large family Can't see Engineer Dong Hoon drinking the modern coffee concoctions Americano/Latte etc...Yuck!!! Hope if he remarried, his young wife won't make him drink those things, since she seems to like coffee of every types!

    @nearsea It takes maturity to value goodness over good look. It takes time to see values in good deed vs. good outward performances.... As the Engineer said to one of his Musketeer Engineer: Between a girl who always says nice thing but helps no one vs. a richard simmons cold girl who won't abandon other in need, who is a better person? the answer is rhetorical, but the young would tend to say "the better looking one"! hahaha. In My Mister, this reader notes that Lawyer Kang Yoon Hee is physically more comely than Lee Ji An the waif. But clearly Engineer Dong Hoon knows whom he values more...because that person has a great deal of good values inside! @t123han should look at marriage contract or nagareboshi if you have never seen them.

    @sadiesmith said: When Ji-an said: And I feel pathetic for hanging around so late at night...for a glimpse of you!... Engineer Dong Hoon looks very uncomfortable!!! As they would say it in court: Judged and found guilty!!!@@@@ hahaha This story reminds this reader of BINARY STARS in astrophysics,... where 2 stars are fated to orbit each other going round and round in a circle always trying to get close to each other but the other would slip sideway away... so they just circle each other, bound together by gravity to never escape from each other for an eternity! If one binary star is much smaller than the other and close enough, then its content would slowly be suck away by the bigger star, until they eventually become one! Example is a star called SPICA (alpha virginis) in the constellation VIRGO, which is very bright and consist of A PAIR of tightly bound binary stars that whirl around each other every 4 days! They are so tightly bound that we cannot even resolve them with a telescope! The only way we knew they are two in one star is because of their doppler shift around as they circle each other!... much like Engineer Park Dong Hoon and Lee Ji An. So @akhenaten can read her book, then look up at the constellation VIRGO at night and see the brightest star there and see THE PAIR. Like you said, every where!!

    In south korea, it is not uncommon practice for business deal to start with gift giving.... that runs in contrary to western standard (especially with the US where there are strong bribery laws). Recently the billionaire chairman of Lotte Group Shin Dong bin was sentenced to 2.5 years for bribery of a confidante of expresident Park. 6.4 millions dollars was set up at a foundation liked to Park's friend Choi Soon sil and the company received a government license for its duty free business. Shin is appealing the conviction. This scandal in 2016 brought down Park's presidency. Lee Jae yong, the de facto head of Samsung group was found guilty of bribery in august 2017, but he appealed and got out free in feb 2018 after his 5 years prison sentence was reduced. So South Korea is struggling to change to a more western style of government/business where the 2 entities are not so intertwined. Nevertheless, if you want some thing done in many part of the world, you need to grease it with some thing. SO COMES THE GIFT CERTIFICATE which is designed to make it harder to trace where the GIFT/BRIBE comes from. It is not a 1 to 1 certificate so a person can exchange that with some one else for cash or services, if the latter is willing to take the certificate..... almost an underground economy! Of course the actual value once converted to money (won) will be less! One can always go to shady people like loan sharks and get money at a discount! In the United States, people have even used FOOD STAMP (a kind of voucher for poor people from the government to assist them in buying food...they just go to a supermarket and pay with the food stamp)…. to buy illegal GUNS!!!! That shows that firearms are more important than food! OF COURSE THE LOAN SHARK WOULD ACCEPT THE GIFT CERTIFICATE (AT A DISCOUNT OF COURSE)….but they did not do that because the loan shark Kwang Il did not want Ji-an to pay off her debt to him/his father. AS LONG AS SOMETHING IS NEGOTIABLE, IT HAS A PRICE! HAHAHA!!!

    @justamom please tell them that if they come up with an amount and this reader thinks it is reasonable, and this reader will pay them.... then: how do this reader pay them? wire transfer is acceptable in dollars? what contractual agreement are they willing to give to us, that they will include said English subtitle... because they will have to send us a receipt and a contract that they will complete their part

    @justamom this reader is willing to pay them what it would cost them to include the English subtitles in their bluray by having some one do the subtitles and include it in their bluray so it is worth it for us to buy them. They said they will put Chinese subs if there is enough demand like 100 disks. to do that they will have to hire some person to translate into Chinese. This reader is asking how much it would cost them to hire some good English speaker to translate into English and include it in the bluray so that we can buy it. this reader is willing to pay them for the cost of getting that English translation and include it in the bluray. ask them please.

    RED STOP! Or you can't sleep! hahahah @justamom COULD YOU ask them how much they would charge if this reader pay them directly for English subtitle to be included in the BLURAY.... .all they have to say is how much! they cannot ask for a better deal. @aisling said: This thread is still going strong three weeks after MA ended! You guys rock! Though I don’t contribute to this thread as often as before I’m still struggling to move on from this drama. I’ve tried to watch a first episode of 4 different shows and couldn’t keep my attention till the end. Oh, did MA cast and crew had a gathering on June 2? I’d love to see more pics! Seeing IU and LSK sitting next to each other brings out so much feelings again... this reader say: can't watch another show for a while....either. the other show seem so superficial after MM

    @Sakari great choice is Yoona's street. very lay back story. Lots of running too!...although no heavy breathing! There is even a spider man climbing scene up a 3 story building by a girl with a back pack! Plus these people like scissors! @h2ogirl @Sakari also said "My rewatch has progressed to E13. Regarding the oft-quoted OhmyStar article, I strongly disagree about the drama's supposed portrayal of Yoon Hee – Cheating Wife – as supremely bad (and of Dong Hoon, as supremely good.) Even before Dong Hoon learns about the adultery, there is ample evidence of the insensitive way he treats his wife, of how he essentially has given up on the marriage. I think I have said this before... My explanation for the breakdown of their relationship is the decision to send the son off to school and the resulting emptiness of the "new" family home – which leads to Dong Hoon returning to his "old" home. But I admit, this is never spelled out in the drama. Is it just my non-Korean imagination? Does this point ever come up in the DC Inside discussion? What little Korean I know is not enough to find out for myself...::" You are referring to the "empty nest syndrome" where middle age couple get divorced when their children move out.... up to then they endure each others for the sake of the children.... then the house is empty and each parent does his/her own thing.

    @anipanch said not really Russian watch with subs, like the majority of international fans... Bet it warms those Russian fans up at night too!.... Long winter is in Russia... My Mister is better than Vodka! Who knows they may start drinking Soju instead!!! @mushroomsoupie and @kdramafanlsk was talking about moon and hoon rhymes together. so LJE/LJA song actually said: 1st verse (JA -> DH) Dear Hoon my moon Why can’t I get closer to you? Though I trail behind you with quick steps You’re like the moon that I can’t reach Oh moon like Hoon Why is it that you don’t disappear? Though I try to turn around and run away You’re like the moon that follows me You Could it be fate? The moment our eyes met I thought I heard you talk to me with your low voice I replied you A hesitant answer Vaguely over there where you are I said I think I understand why now 2nd verse (DH -> JA) Oh moon My moon It’s not like I don’t want to hug you But I know you’re much too large for me to hold in my arms Oh moon My moon It’s not like I don’t want to have you But it’s because you’re so dazzling to me And I am such a dark night Could it be fate? On your pale face I think I saw a shadowy smudge that doesn’t suit you Waving my hands at you Signalling you to come over I said there’s a loner here who’s very much like you that won’t disappear 3rd verse (JA) My only Hoon Just as it’s unreachable Deep into the night The silence of the white moonlight I’ll stay awake tonight as well

    @anipanch Lion? Engineer Dong Hoon is more like a cautious turtle....one step at a time just like a timid baby. He first learn how to eat (with a woman)...choke on beer (with a woman)… That only took a few months.... Then years later he learn how to shake hand and smile with a woman! That for him is a huge step!...a huge beginning as you said! All for the sake of....."friendship". Russians speak Korean too?
