The subway seems like an indication of danger or excitement for DH. Excitement, meaning an otherwise lethargic DH is going to be forced into action, his heart is going to beat faster (ep3), he is going to have to react to a situation or someone.... basically, he is going to move from his usual position. 

 

The subway is also where his thing with JA happens and progresses, from the uncomfortable ride in ep3, and all the other situations where they have been together to bring them closer as a "couple". It's kinda dangerous, according to me.

 

What do y'all think? I'll have to go back to previous episodes (later) to test this hypothesis tho...

 

I agree with you that a moving train/subway works to move DH from his stagnant position like you said.  It's dangerous like Ki Hoon warned, and it made DH very very comfortable, but ultimately the act of moving is the very thing that saves him.  This is portrayed even more literally in episode 5, when he lays there at the TRAIN tracks thinking about death.

Thought of including some Longing scenes, but that would require an entire post!

Edit: @h2ogirl, that's some beautiful gifs going straight to my MA folder! Thank you :D 

I love love the scene in episode 15 where DH just stared at her frail, petite hands, then had to look away suddenly or he might do something more.

So you're saying every time an individual character runs, it's to run to his/her lover.  Right?

Hi everyone! The thread seems to be slowing down and some people are dropping off. Before it gets super slow (will that ever happen?) I wanted to share something personal. I hope you don't mind.

 

The last several days have been very emotional and hard for my family and myself. There have been several times each day where I would let out a deep sigh just like our beloved Dong Hoon. I was reminded of DH and My Ahjussi with every sigh.

 

Although we here on this thread don't really know each other we do know something about each other and that is that we all fell for and enjoyed watching and analyzing this amazing drama. That is the connection that we all have with each other. Although the red light came on for the actual drama and we are seeing the yellow light on this thread because we all are going back to our real lives I believe the green light of our love for this show will shine on forever.

 

I was thinking that maybe every one of you has been my Park brothers, SH and KH. Or the brothers and sisters of the Hugye community. Or the wise and caring Chairman or JA's grandma. Or the always knowing and loving mom. Thank you all for providing the structural integrity I needed by providing such wonderful insight and humor. You protected against all the cracks that appeared as I was unsure what was really happening between DH and JA.

 

During these last few days of personal turmoil I reflected on the show and all these comments and videos and gathered strength. I want to Thank You all and say that you have been my Lee Ji-an. I am smiling broadly now (although I can't hold all your hands)

"Kang Yoon Hee is really such a lonely, isolated character. It's why she cheated, even though it was wrong. I tried my best to express her situation and suffering. If people can understand that, I would be so relieved."

She did a good job with her character. I felt some sympathy for YH, though I didn’t agree with her actions. Many wives feel they should be #1 in their husbands’ hearts, while some husbands feel they shouldn’t have to choose between their mothers and their wives. Everyone is family, so everyone should be loved equally, is one way to look at it. It’s a common problem. For example, wives often lament that their husbands should take their side if there is a disagreement with the mother-in-law, while most husbands hope they will leave them out of it. :lol:

 

I also liked Lee Ji Ah in “Me Too, Flower” as a depressed policewoman who had a rough childhood, and still has a tough time with her family. I liked how she connected with someone who was also alone and abandoned as a child. They felt like they really needed each other so much.

 

Here’s bts of her rapping and being carefree while filming.

@sadiesmith At first I'm just really drawn to the way these people show their true colours in running. For DJY, it was more a light jog than an actual mad dash - he's not in a rush. He also keeps his face carefully hidden - it's an act that perhaps shows his shame. Meanwhile, KH/YR and DH/JA both show such excitement and desperation to move quickly and get to where the other person is. They don't care who is watching at all.

And if you think about how 'Running' is what drawn DH to JA in the first place (on JA's resume), I'm led to believe it's not just a one-off or insignificant action:

Episode 7, when DH asked JA why she put down 'Running' as her hobby, she replied: 'When I'm running...I disappear. I feel like that's the real me.'

Episode 8, DH shared why he was drawn to such a resume, quoting his friend Gyum Duk: 'Everyone struggles for their whole life, trying to have things...but nobody truly knows what they are gaining by doing that...when the things that you thought made you who you are don't actually seem to provide you with any inner strength, you've got nothing' 'Maybe that's why I gravitated toward a resume that just said "running" instead of the other resumes that were decked out.'

It seems to me that to DH too, the act of running is something that is honest and shows the real inner strength, real inner feelings of a person.

Don't remember if there are other scenes where characters are running - will need to keep an eye on this on my rewatch - the only scene that comes to mind is where KH/the Hugye gang run while threatening to kill the bastard who got DH all battered - how very refreshing and honest.

@andius, I find it ironic that while LJA likes the fact that she feels invisible when she is running, it is this very action that first got DH to notice her.  And like you said, when she runs to DH, she does not care who sees her, like there is no shame in what she is doing, there is nothing to hide.

@mylovelystar  Oh wow.  I think that scene with Lee Ji An's eyes filling with tears happened right after the camera focused on Dong Hoon smiling that big smile at her.  Remember the scene was cut and the next one showed them already outside by the bushes?  She was probably so happy and relieved that he was happy to see her, which made her realize that he made good on his promise that when they see each other again, he will smile warmly at her.  I wish they showed that.  It would have made for a very powerful reunion scene between them.

What about the tears just now?

00:01:58,575 --> 00:02:02,615
Those were just tears.
You can cry in your daily life.

@andius  @ccl82  @sadiesmith  I actually watched Goblin but not while it was airing.   Funny enough, I loved it.  However, I went into it with an anime mindset so my expectations were different.  I was ready for the fantastical and funny.  I wasn't looking for anything heavy or earth-shattering.  Maybe that's why I was able to appreciate it.  :)    The chemistry between Gong Yoo's Kim Shin and Lee Dong Wook's Grim Reaper was so good!  They were really so funny.  The way their characters interacted actually had an anime vibe.  But I also appreciated Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun's relationship in the drama, primarily because of the anime mindset.  He was an immortal so of course he would be so much older than she was.  And she was his bride through mystical circumstances.  Anyway, they didn't come together until he returned and she was already an adult by then. So I didn't have any issues with the age gap.  And that gap was huge, by the way.  Around a millennia.  So the age gap of our MA couple would have nothing on the Goblin couple.  Hahaha!  But I found the romance between Kim Shin and Ji Eun Tak beautiful from a fantasy perspective.  I think the key to appreciating it is to look at her as a reincarnated soul, so her age at the end of the drama when they meet again is not that of the high school girl that she happens to be at that time.  

 

Having said all of that, I don't think there's any comparison to MA.  This is a completely different genre.  MA has no hint of fantasy.  And it's a story of ordinary people in ordinary circumstances.  Besides, I think Gong Yoo and Lee Sun Kyun are different types of actors.  To me, Gong Yoo would be more of a celebrity kind of actor.  Not that he isn't skilled or talented but he would be the kind that's more well-known for his celebrity status than for his acting prowess through no fault of his own.  Lee Sun Kyun is a character actor.  To my mind, celebrity actors often have larger-than-life personas so that gets superimposed onto the characters they play.  What comes out is a character that's a composite of the celebrity persona and the actual character.  Character actors, on the other hand, transform into the characters they play.  Since they aren't celebrities, there is no persona that overwhelms the personality of the character they portray.  Their own personalities cease to be once they're in character.  Not sure if I'm making any sense but it's like saying Kim Shin is Gong Yoo playing him.  Park Dong Hoon, on the other hand, is Park Dong Hoon.  Lee Sun Kyun was just a medium that made him come to life.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If this was a movie, I think Gong Yoo is actually able to play a character like Dong Hoon. Have you guys seen A Man and A Woman? He just needs to look less pretty.

Wire-tap me all you want 

 

 


Thank you! If you notice, right from earlier episodes, DJY seems to be the first one to catch on to something. Everytime JA tells him stuff about DH, he has this look on his face. Like, "Hmmm... what's going on here? Can't quite put my finger on it, but something's up for sure."

@andius definitely give Goblin a try, you won't be disappointed. It was my number 1 drama before I discovered MA, now it's 1.5 haha, I love it too much to give It a second place :lol: 

Seeing the posts, it seems like I'm in a minority when it comes to being Gong Yoo's fan. I love that man endlessly both as an actor and a person, he is just too lovable for me. I watched 3 movies and another drama only for him.

As for Goblin, I'd highlight the bromance, beautiful human stories of side characters and a masterful cinematography, which was gorgeous.

 

 

 

I'm a Gong Yoo fan too! Not a huge one, but I can watch his stuff, and I find him a likeable person.

Geez, I guess they really did go the extra mile to keep things from being too obvious about where JA-DH's relationship was headed.  Deliberately ambiguous to the very end. <_<

Ok so I was rewatching ep 10 and noticed something in the end .. how did I miss this before !!! Sorry for sounding like a broken record but at this point I am not even trying to move on. 

In the last 5 min or so Lsk goes to him home and climbs the lift but does not want to go in since he sees his wife car and maybe is in no mood to confront the wife. He walks to the regular bar where the divorces bar guy tells him about his divorce . First of all no clue how the bar guy knows about LSK wife affair because he says if he can endure a divorce so can Dong Hoon. He turns back and looks near the door as if hoping against hope that jian might come ... he specifically went to that bar so that he can bump into jian. And of course jian is standing outside waiting to go in but stops short when she sees the reporter guy. Even at the moment when his married life is in mess , he wants to find comfort by talking to jian. If this is not a clear hint then the director is definitely playing with us shippers !!! This right here is a SIGN that DH wants jian .. call me delusional but I am going to sleep on this fact!!!

LOL, @t123han!  I am only halfway through episode 3 in my rewatch, so like you I am far from moving on.  I was the first one on this thread and I'll bet I will be the one closing the door after everyone leaves, and I don't mind.  So stay here awhile. :-)

I’ve been a silent reader since the beginning, but can’t stand not to reply this topic right here.. cause I’ve just finished rewatching ep 10 myself and this is exactly what I’ve been thinking too! And after that,  ji an confession’s actually hit dong hoon’s head , cause he’s the one who wanders around at night too.. looking for her at the bar, after this episode, we’ll see more of dong hoon searching around the neighbourhood try to catch a glimpse of ji an , and tension gets higher until the last episode, where they end ambigiously *sigh* , but overall we should know already what’s in dong hoon’s heart, it’s always been ji an
