Since @Heidi Seow busy with Monster, i try to drag @gm4queen to watch Coffee House with me. Haha dont know whats her thought on that drama. Im curious to know. 

 

Yeah i seldom use the phrase "burn my tv screen" you know :lol::sweatingbullets:. Even BJS actually not burning my screen, hes more cute & ideal husband hahaha....But Lee Jin Soo in Coffee House is the bad boy type you will love & hate at the same time. 

Haha. His handsomeness definitely 200% out of the cellar in Coffee House:wub:. I love the couple Jinsoo and Eunyoung so much! Especially those first eps when they sit and goofing around together! 

 

The later part did become much more interesting but i’m kind of sad that their relationship was saddening and didnt have much goofy scenes anymore :huh:

Actually Angie the drama become very much interesting for me after episode 5.

 

It was for me the sad part that become the highlight of their relationship. The way she rescued him from the darkness is the best part of the show in my opinion.

 

Then only i really like this couple and support them wholeheartedly. 

 

I also like very much their confusion /  awkwardness and LJS refusal to be in relationship during the ep 5-11.

 

All their awkward moment is so cute, she always try to hide her embarassment by acting all confident but end up with bigger shame lol. 

 

My only complaint is, i wish they not confusing viewers with the love triangle prospect and give more screen time to LJS / SEY. 

 

I even write review in mydramalist LOL. I really didnt see myself will really like this drama. It was strange and odd at beginning, but im drawn to it.

 

Me & @phoenix24 have different opinion on LJS about is he a husband material or a hot bad boyfriend that you cannot resist muahahaha :lol::D. Whats your take on this?

 

And the soompi thread for that CH is 400 pages, are you active during that time? 

 

P.s sorry for being so long... lol. Become too excited :lol:

@Lawyerh yesss! I started rooting for them from ep 5 onward! Actually at the moment Eunyoung’s ex questioned about her relationship with Jinsoo! I love their desperate love for each other, love their angst, love Jinsoo stubborness, love everything about the way they interacted with each other! For me their story was so heartbreaking but so realistic!

 

I think Lee Jinsoo is husband material, but only to Eunyoung haha. I’ve never thought of him as boyfriend material. If he doesnt have Eunyoung, he should not (or can never) end up with anyone else lol.

 

For me, i was not confused between 2 ships bc i honestly didnt feel any attraction from Jinsoo to Seungyeon the whole time. He was definitely having only Eunyoung in his heart. Later, after ep 9, i realized he cant even live without her (even for 1 day). Eunyoung was the center of his world and every decision or reaction he made was always revolving around her! And he was like that for 10 years, even before he got married! And i sense (actually i know) that his desperated love for her made his marrige down fall (or even led to his ex wife’s suicide) & bc of that he could never be with Eunyoung! So the only thing i was confused about the story is how can he get enough courage to get over that guilt to fight for his love at the end!

 

I was not active in soompi when the drama aired so cant jump in the craze there haha. Still one of my big regret!

 

Btw, i have a gift for you! A rewritten Coffee House based on Lee Jinsoo’s story! And the chingu there is so gifted with her writing talent!

Yes once you watch the show you will not be confused actually. But they have a lot of amount screen time for secretary. And sometimes LJS act is tend to confusing for the poor secretary. Ex. When he bored he will go play with her, touch her hand while work, ask her to sleep in his bed, disturb her movie dating. So i blamed screenwriter for this :naughty:.

Btw which scene in ep 9 make you think so? I might need to revisit. I probably miss this point. 

 

I think theyre not explicitly said the love for EY is the downfall of the marriage? But the viewers will think this is the case, and i think oddness of LJS character is also one of the reason.

 

I also questioning his dissapearing act for 2 years. @phoenix24 assumed he go for treatment for his mental issue that avoiding love & attachment. Hahaha. 

 

Im a bit lost my attention when the screen is on the secretary & her family. Her portion didnt really interest me tbh.

The playful interact between Jinsoo and his secretary is to balance the drama and angst between the main couple i think. And from Jinsoo's view, he never looks at Seungyeon in any romantic light but a secretary to bully and lecture to release stress :joy: so his action toward her is purely for his own devilish entertaining. And maybe in the beginning he really thinks of her as a tool like a table or the eraser (like what he said in later ep, maybe ep 12 lol). 

 

-------------------------

For the realization that JS cant live without EY, here's some scenes

 

-in ep 11 (telephone booth talking): they say about their 10 years relationship and JS asks if 1 minute can express his affection for her for 10 years => this means JS has been in love with her for 10 years (my guess is like a love at first sight thing bc i think they also 1st met 10 ys ago). 

 

-in ep 7 (EY sleeps at JS's hotel room): that night JS goes to movie theater with Seungyeon and there's a short recall of their student time when EY is already with Jiwon  (his reaction shows he's already in love with her at the time) and his ex-wife was not in the picture yet! => this means JS loves EY way before starting the relationship with his wife.

 

-in ep 11 (EY asks why he introduces Jinwon for her in the 1st place and later he reveals bc Jinwon's action is expected so he will feel at ease that Jinwon will not make her sad) => he at least has some caring feeling for her at that time (but maybe too scared to step forward). I used to think the reason he introduced her to Jinwon is bc he's already married at the time but rewatch ep 7 scene above it was not the case, it was just his cowardice.

 

-in ep 8 (the kiss!): i've read sometimes long ago about the making of the scene and the PD retakes the scene 20 times! bc he wants to fully show JS long repressed love for EY through the kiss. The way he immediately kisses her back shows that he's desperate for this kiss! and the moment she touches him he loses sense of reality, also his mind! (Seungyeon initiates her kiss with him too but his reaction is bleh :joy:, he shoves her away immediately!)

 

-in ep 9 (he calls Seungyeon when she's having a family dinner): he says he is bored to death! and then takes lots of drugs => he feels like dying to think that there's something bad happen to EY.

 

-in ep 10 (that collapse!): normally ppl dont collapse when worrying for someone (in JS's case: worry for a friend). This must be caused by very strong depression which affects too much on his mental health and eventually his physical state! This kind of extreme/overwhelming emotion may cause the kill of his life!

 

-in ep 7 (EY scolds him: can u even live if not for writing?) and in ep 10 (after she informs the ending of their contract, JS says he has no reason to write anymore, bc we know he writes to be near her!) => put this together may link to the result: bc of the contract with EY that he keeps on living (or not wastes his life on drug and alcohol like before. well but this equal ending his life bc in the state we see him alone in the hotel room after his wife's death, sooner or later he would think of commit suicide if those drugs dont kill him first!). So the main reason for living is not the writing but her! 

 

-in ep 9 (the last phone of his ex-wife blames him: how can you be happy and i cant? Dont feel bother by me. But you're really to much!) => this i guess the ex-wife knew about his love for EY and that eventually led to her suicide. If JS is just an 'intolerant' guy then why she has to kill herself after divorcing him? 

 

------------------------------

Yes i do agree he wants to cure his mental illness to have a chance with her in that 2 years apart!

 

Also, his disappearance for 2 years i think is for not letting his emotion become too overwhelming that leads to breaking their borderline (1st: EY is his ex-wife's best friend, 2nd: his love for EY may cause the dearth of his wife). He frequently did that in the past also (i think it were those times when his affection for her was to great to endure, so he had to run away). This time he even kisses her, TWICE! (he might be exploded with desire and hunger! lol) + he sees how hard she's been through => go away is the best choice.  

-------------

Looking back, JS must be a saint for enduring his affection for her that long! (12 years in total :crazy:). Look at the way he kisses her! It would not be overestimate to say he dreams of making her his million of times throughout the years :joy: And those hungry and desperate kisses was hella not enough!:P

wow @angiedramadive you really know this drama in and out.  hihi I don't know where to begin so I will skip the quoting @Lawyerh.

 

1. Yeah, I was not confuse on love part.  Sometime there is a bit of doubt because I do wonder if it'll be cliche kdrama style like lawyerh mention because of screentime or if they'll try to shock us since they made such a big deal about triangle with poster.  I do like the main lead relationship with the president.  It's deep and they really understand each other.

 

2. The secretary was the only other person that he lets inside his bubble and trust.  Maybe not love interest, but her part is still significant.  She does also inspire him to be a better man or pick the right road.

 

3.  Hm..interesting point about marriage,  I never thought of it that way.  I do know that he liked her for a while.  Yea, when they were at the movie i thought it was a bit off, just wasn't sure on timeline.  Some people have chemistry, but realization about love sometime comes much later.

 

4.  Actually, I said he went to fix his mental state is because of the kiss.  If he want to not cross the border the last thing he needs to do is confuse her or hurt her more.  At one point, she said if he only show any sign he was coming back.  To me, that was his sign.  The one thing he did or show that is true about his feelings.  This was after he told her what the problem was so for me he went to find the solution.  As soon as he came back, he continue where he left off and went to propose right away.  As quirky/odd as he is, I find everything he does have reason and purpose.
