  1. I was able to find other clips aside from the one posted on this page like this one but unfortunately no english subs See this Instagram post by @tvndrama.official
  2. The best scenes for me would be when Prince Dowon pointed out the faults of the king and the conversation between HR and the king. Although I enjoy watching the prince being so innocent and bright, I prefer the serious scenes (how he handled the small pox issue, confrontations with the king) because it shows his resolute character. This is the same character that he shares with our female lead. I specially liked how she was able to communicate her thoughts to the king in a way that is sincere and non-judgemental. It doesn’t come off as fake or full of “BS” which was why I think she was able to reach the king and made him respect her. As an audience, it made me rethink that the king is not as vicious as I initially thought. I appreciate this drama as being light but deep in the writing of its characters. I am invested in not just the main characters but also with the secondary characters like historian Min and the prince regent. I do hope for more opportunities for Prince Dowon to showcase his intelligence and insights on what’s going on in the palace. I hope for more character development for him before the drama ends.
  3. I highly recommend that drama too. I always hear that. Personally though, I don’t agree with confessing just so you don’t have regrets if the guy is already involved. While that person has it off her chest, the confession can burden the guy and can result in awkward situations specially if it is unreciprocated. Also, I think there’s a subtle and dangerous message that is being communicated in confessing ones’s feelings with an attached guy. It’s sending a message to him that if you are not happy with your existing relationship, I’m available. The subtle intent is to give the guy a choice and hope for that he break-ups with his partner.
  4. And so it ends… I liked the ending too. My thoughts… On PM-BTM. I mentioned before that this is my favorite couple primarily because I relate well with BTM’s character and it is the most developed storyline among the 3. The issues of their relationship got a lot of us thinking and the posts here are so detailed and made for very interesting reading. I did not dislike the death of the mom because I think it was properly used as a tool for PM and BTM to realize the extent of their feelings for one another. The dialogue “I cannot live without you” is a simple line that spoke volumes to me. I can believe that they will work on their relationship despite the unresolved issues between them because they want to be together more than they want to be apart. On CH-JH. This is my least favorite couple, only because it lacked depth for me. I view JH’s character as one-dimensional and he’s presented as someone so innocent and pure that I find it hard to believe that such a person could exist and be so perfect. I did enjoy watching their scenes together because it was so sweet and charming. I think they are a good match because for all of CH’s anger issues, there is an innocence and vulnerability in her that needs a partner like JH. I confess I got a little frustrated in the middle when it was so obvious that they had feelings for each other but they weren’t admitting it to each other. I was disappointed that it was CH who had the courage to confess of her feeling rather than the guy but I guess that’s true of their character, CH being the alpha female and JH being the Beta male On GG-JW. I find the dynamics of this couple quite fascinating and interesting. They are both complex individuals and share a deep bond because they both have bad and uncaring parents. When they talk, they leave of lot of things unsaid but they have a silent understanding of what the other one wants to communicate. Whether they are married or divorced, it really does not matter in their relationship because it goes deeper than that. On BTM-GG-CH. This ended quite abruptly for my taste and remains unresolved for me. I mean, I liked that they were together in the end but I am not fully convinced that GG still wants to have anything to do with BTM and vise versa. It also wasn’t fully explained why GG grew to dislike BTM so much. What I didn’t like… The Online Youtuber and the BTM’s ex-boyfriend ending. Piano teacher. I think its fine to confess if the guy you are interested in does not have a girlfriend, but a big no-no for me if he is already attached to someone else. She was right to apologize though, because her feelings do not give her the right to judge PM – BTM’s relationship.
  5. PM and BTM were both searching for the same thing at the end.
  6. I really love reading the lengthy discussions here on PM and BTM. It shows how each one of us are giving so much thought and analysis on their relationship and who they are as people. So much respect for you guys. If this is the intent of the writer, she certainly succeeded. Is there a way for us to write to her and just give her our appreciation? I hope she gets to read this too. As for my view on how they will end PM and BTM, its either: 1. They break up permanently 2. They are together but they have this feeling that they’ve forced the other one to compromise their belief (current situation) 3. They are together and they are perfectly content with the decisions and choices they made. (Whether its getting married or not getting married) To be honest, in whatever ending it may be, I will be fine with it because I think each ending makes sense. The one thing I hate about some drama endings is if it doesn’t make sense at all or it was so inconsistent. Here, the way it was written, I can believe either of the 3 scenarios happening. For number 1&2, if BTM will always feel guilty and will not trust PM when he says its more important for him to be with BTM rather than get married and he will not regret it in the future. For number 3, if she feels the opposite. I personally would like number 3 to happen and it is possible for them to get this ending. BTM has been presented as somebody who evolves. She is not inflexible as seen with her work actions (look at her Brian and Scarlett conversations). She is willing to be changed and is the better for it. I see PM as somebody who is so sure of his feelings with BTM and he is willing to risk a lot just to be with her. He has already experienced BTM slowly changing because of her growing feelings for him and I think he has enough faith in her for him to get this happy ending. So yes, I am rooting for number 3.
  7. I will definitely miss this drama when it ends next week. The intelligent dialogue and discourse, the strong and interesting characters, the relationships.... I hope the writer makes more dramas like this in the future. From the viewpoints presented in this forum, you can see that it succeeded in making us think and reflect on different issues and how we related and reacted to the different characters. I always find it interesting to read other people’s viewpoints because I want to learn and understand their thoughts besides my own and I hope that when I share my thoughts, that people will also feel the same way. Anyway, special shoutout on the work stories. I especially appreciate Brian, his leadership style. His being a mentor to Tammy and Tammy being a mentor to Ellie are so good to watch
  8. The BTM-PM pairing continues to be my favorite among the 3. I find their relationship to be the most realistic and most relatable. Some people don’t like the constant push-pull conflict that is being introduced in the story but isn't that what a relationship is all about? In the process of getting to know another person, you will agree on some issues but you will also differ in a lot more. I find their dialogue/conversations to be very interesting. I also believe that between the two, PM is presented as somebody who is already committed to BTM while BTM is still trying to reach that place of commitment. I also don’t necessarily think that BTM should be perceived as a loser if in the end, she marries PM. I found in life, that I may have certain beliefs that I held in the past but now have changed and those beliefs no longer holds true in the present. I also found that if I chose to hold on to old beliefs without giving the other side the benefit of the doubt, I can limit my own growth because I am unwilling to be changed. That is why I like BTM’s character because whether in work or love, she is open to change and be changed.
  9. That might be the best possible ending for her. Being an angel and spending paradise with KD. As for the others, Ru Na will end up being imprisoned. Her parents will end up repentant of their sins. Ni na will end up being the star ballerina while KW will find new meaning in being a human and work with Ni Na and Fantasia. Lastly, Miss Jung will inherit Fantasia.
  10. I couldn't help thinking that YS is supposed to die tragically and become an angel like KD.
  11. On the GG-JW relationship. Although it started as a marriage of convenience, JW started to fall in love with GG because they had a lot in common. They have horrible selfish parents, they are both under his mother’s thumb and they are only looked upon as something to be used. I also think he went out with other girls and is the one sending the photos in order to assess and provoke a reaction from GG. In episode 3, you can see that he wants to be seen by GG not as a part of the Oh family but as himself. GG on her part is putting a lot of barriers and does not want to owe him any favors so for every good thing he does, she tries to repay it. I think the first time she became aware of his feelings is when she learned that he was responsible for putting BTM in the real time rankings. You can see in the succeeding episodes that she became warmer towards him. I think JW was just waiting for GG to rebel against his mother on her own will before he acted to support her. Personally, he has nothing to lose as his mother already thinks on him as having no value. On CH-JW. I confess I am not yet on board with JH maybe because I don’t know if he is really that naive and innocent as he seems and I’m scared for Scarlett if he has a hidden agenda. Although Scarlett looks tough, she really is quite vulnerable. I would hate her to be taken advantage of. On BTM-PM. I like that PM is starting to show his vulnerable side as their relationship starts to get deeper. Because their relationship started as a one night stand, he was always trying to show his best side to win BTM over. He is insecure with BTM because he knows that she is not ready to fully commit to a relationship. Some might not like this storyline but I am interested on them because I feel it’s the most realistic and maybe because I relate more with BTM as a character.
  12. I enjoyed reading your views on marriage that it inspired me to write on my own take on marriage. I view marriage as that point in the relationship where people believe that this person is the “one”. The person to they believe they will have their happy ever after, but marriage is more than that. Marriage is when you bind yourself to another person legally and declare to the world that this person is “mine” and you are “his/hers”. That is why cheating is considered more serious in the case of married couples rather than dating couples. Because it is more serious, I believe that marriage requires more commitment and hard work than dating to make it work. It definitely requires more than love. It requires sacrifice. In life, we all go through good and difficult times, people can change and sadly, divorce also happens. Divorce is also a public declaration that you don’t want to be bound to that person anymore and its an act of freeing yourself from another person. Unfortunately, even if divorce can be liberating for the couple, there can be other people adversely affected by divorce like children. I think marriage is a concept that does not change over time, it’s the people who define it that makes it different. Other people may cheat on married couples, why? Maybe because they don’t perceive marriage as different from a dating relationship. Other people might be the “taker” in the marriage, why? Maybe because they don’t see marriage as an “us” relationship but more of a “you” or “me” relationship. That’s why I think if you are considering marriage, it is important to talk first about what your definition of what marriage is to your future spouse before you get married, it might save you a lot of heartache later in life
  13. The scenes between our couple are so good that I couldn’t help waching them over and over again. The lines of Park Morgan just kills me. Park Morgan was initially attracted to her because of her confidence, her competitiveness and how she looked after scoring a victory even though its only a game. He grew more attracted to her to the point of sharing his phone number because he found her to be insightful and he saw her vulnerability inspite of her tough exterior. I’m sure his night with her sealed the deal. As Ta Mi once asked, “was I that good? (She apparently was ) Despite his young age and based on his character, he likes a woman who challenges him. He is confident and is shown in his lines. He knows he is attractive and charming. Although, I read some comments that they felt he was too agressive, I don’t think that at all maybe because I see Ta Mi as a strong character as well. You definintely need some aggresiveness to win her over, and what more important is he knows she is attracted to her. I think if he feels that he doesn’t have a chance with her, he would cut his losses. Also, he doesn’t force his feelings, if the girl said stop, he does stop. He always wait for Ta Mi to make the first move. I like him because I think he is sure of his feelings and he is willing to gamble and work for it to get his girl. He never wanted it to stay as a one night stand. Even on the last episode, when Ta Mi was saying she’s developing feelings for her, he never wanted to just be someone you have fun at an amusement park but someone that is part of her everyday life.
