That is 계동

 

In the show, it's 계동

 

Not the same place. :)

 

Yup it’s fictitious. So is Bukchon station which doesn’t exist. But I assume it’s somewhere near there, in the older part of the city

 

apparently Seoul residents get upset if you use their neighbourhoods name and it’s not 100% positive. They’re very worried about the effect on their property prices. 

 

@chickfactor any idea where they shot the Hugye scenes?

@nhara - I am like you and most everyone here...finding difficulty in moving on.  My Ahjussi is such a hard act to follow! The bar is set so high! Everything else pales in comparison.  But there are other worthy dramas out there, as I’m sure you know. You just have to fight your tendency to compare it with others, though, for a period of time - the “getting over” period.  And who knows how long that will be?

 

In the meanwhile, would you consider an “other Asian” drama?  I stray from Korean dramas when I get tired of the predictability, unbelievability, over-the-topness, and/or extreme behavior (like mothers hating on their adult child’s dating or marriage choices) that often play a big part in some of them.  Anyway, I would recommend “My Dear Boy,” a Taiwanese drama that tells the story of younger man and older woman (10 year difference) who fall in love but find opposition (surprise, surprise). It’s light with its serious moments. I enjoyed the acting and how they tackled the subject.

 

Speaking of age difference in a love story, I seem to be drawn to them...lately, anyhow.  I admit that was part of the draw for me about My Ahjussi. After watching the first episode, I knew it wasn’t going to be your typical age difference love story.  Why, I wasn’t even for sure it was going to be a love story even though it was touted as such. However, I knew it was a keeper. It was so obvious because it just radiated excellence.  

 

Anyway, when it comes to the age difference thing in a love story, I hardly bat an eye.  The reason for that is my parents were 18 years apart. They married when he was 36 and she was 18, so he was twice her age.  They were deeply in love, but as you would guess, they ran into difficulties because of the age disparity, and my dad was accused of “robbing the cradle.”  Thank goodness both families were okay with the marriage, and since those were the main ones that counted to my folks (besides each other), they took a “heck with the rest of them” attitude and lived their lives happily together, later adding six kids to the mix.

 

Now the age difference between Ji An and Dong Hoon is about 6 years greater than that of my parents, but it’s still not a big deal to me.  I was sad to hear about all the uproar regarding that age difference. And then, an apology by the drama people? Oh for crying out loud. I wish they could have just thought as my parents did...heck with them!  I know, easier said than done. As one or more of you have expressed, I do wonder if there were any changes made in final product, post uproar. Would we have gotten a kiss at the end? One where he is leaning in on her in contrast to her tippy-toeing up to him?  Like some of you, I really would like to see the script, especially if there was a before and after.

 

One more thing - I’ve said this before, but another reason I don’t think much on the age difference is because she’s had to grow up so fast because of her hard life, that it’s like she’s been an adult for a long while.  Sure, there are things that she didn’t know, like how her halmeoni could qualify for a permanent free stay at a care facility, and that’s understandable. As for him, on the other hand, seems like his stagnant life has kept him at the same stage - and age - for a while.  Which is why I think of them as equals and the perfect match.

In My Mister, I noticed the station name signboard as Hugye but the subtitles use a different spelling. Anyway, did a search and found this video:

 

^also LSK in the above video!

 

About the impact of Lee Ji-an:

 

 

 

IU promotes Maxim simple latte coffee, SONY headphones and Mon Cher pies which all had PPL on My Mister.

I’m sure he’ll do it if the role calls for it. In a recent movie, A Special Lady, he is a gangster/assassin obsessively in love with an older woman, and has meaningless sex with a younger woman.

 

Here’s a clip (warning - graphic language and sexual situations).

 

Yeah I'm glad tho XD LSK seems to prefer movies to dramas and Korean movies tend to be quite graphic both in violence and sex in contrast with dramas. So if he wants to lend main roles he can't say no, not that I'm complaining :tongue:

He was really hot in "A special Lady"

I like your reflections on the series. There are so many details, every time I see it I like it more and more. That's why I asked you to help me find something that I like in order to overcome the syndrome of abstinence that the end of this wonderful drama.

Doesn't exist either. They must have printed the labels and stuck them over to recreate the station!
