Here are two more write-ups discussing his thought and anxiety over the controversy:

Thank you for posting those. I don't have the time to translate them in detail, but they both say similar things.

 

It says that he was frustrated and apprehensive because "arrows of criticism" were pointed at the show from the very beginning due to the age difference. He thought about explaining it to the public, but they would only sound like excuses.

 

He decided that the only solution was to do his best to show "truth" (or "sincerity") and the truth would eventually reach the audience. He felt that by the time the show ended, he, and the show, had succeeded in doing that, so he was happy.

I miss you all! Happy New Year and I hope everyone has a happy, healthy, wonderful 2019!

This has been a fantastic year for me, as I rediscovered Kdramas and South Korea thanks mostly to My Mister. 

 

Have a fantastic 2019, squad. 

 

P.S: Watching and loving Alhambra, have ditched Encounter.

For me, 2018 is My Ahjussi.

 

I've never been so mesmerized by a drama before. I have favorite dramas, of course, but My Ahjussi is on a whole different level. The writing, the directing, the acting, every aspect of this drama somehow came together perfectly resulting a masterpiece.

 

And most importantly, the life lessons... I've learned a lot from My Ahjussi, about life, about love, about human...

 

My Ahjussi had inspired me to strive to be a better person (still a long way to go though :sweatingbullets:)

 

Thanks for all the members of this forum for sharing the love for My Ahjussi :heart:

My Ajusshi wins Best Drama and Best Director in Dramabeans Editors' Pick. It also gets Honorable Mentions in many other categories. Of course I totally think LSK should have gotten the Best Actor pick and Park Hae Young for Best Writing and all the rest, but I am sure they tried to not give every category win to My Ajusshi. :)

 

2018 Editors’ Picks

 

BEST DRAMA

My Ajusshi

girlfriday: I can’t exactly describe watching My Ajusshi as a pleasurable experience, because it was so much more complex than that—an emotionally cathartic, deeply raw, sometimes painful journey through the darkest and loneliest moments of everyday life. It was a story about how tenuous human connection can be, and yet how a seemingly tenuous connection can alter the course of your life in profound ways. The simmering emotions underneath the carefully restrained performances were the highlight of the series, and in particular a surprise from IU, who kept me on her side despite playing a deeply troubled young woman who lashed out at others and herself at every turn. The whole time I was struck by how characters acted like real people—in all their embarrassing, unsexy, mundane glory—and the most important things were left unsaid, just like real life. Nothing about My Ajusshi was neat or satisfying in the way that dramas usually solve all problems and let us move on, but the beauty of the unspoken connection and bittersweet longing will linger with us that much longer, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Honorable Mentions
Hundred Million Stars From the Sky

 

BEST DIRECTING

My Ajusshi

odilettante: Kim Won-seok is no stranger to our end-of-year Editors’ Picks, we voted him Best Director in 2014 for Misaeng and again in 2016 for Signal. So it should be no surprise to see his name once more, this time for My Ajusshi. His unique skill as a director is stripping bare the mundane, yet at the same time elevating the boringly brutal (or brutally boring) everyday life. Characters embrace the silence—their subtle reactions to the world they inhabit is more than enough to reveal their true selves. Sometimes their world is bleak and full of despair, like Ji-an mutely trudging up a hill in the middle of the night, pushing her grandmother in a shopping cart. And sometimes their world is filled with small moments of wonder and joy, such as running just fast enough to catch the last subway train. Kim Won-seok expertly interweaves a mild sense of absurdity with harsh reality, causing the viewer to persistently search the shadows for the flicker of light and ray of hope, reassured that these are just fictional characters on a screen and not the manifestation of one’s own daily struggle to exist.

When I read girlfriday's words in the Best Drama category, it struck me that she herself was one of the many who feel the strong attraction between the main characters beyond the platonic kind:

LSK got looked over again as the Best Actor :tears:...

But like you said @sadiesmith, maybe they just tried to spread the love... And a lot of commenters also thought LSK deserves the Best Actor.

 

I laughed when My Ahjussi get Honorable Mention for Unrequited Love category (who said the love was unrequited? hahaha)

 

Happy New Year, guys!

During PMC : The Bunker movie promotion in Taiwan, the MC asked LSK to speak like Park Dong Hoon and say "Fighting!"

He's shy, it's so cute :wub:
