  1. @bedifferent I'm watching it and eagerly wait for the episodes! This is my most favourite show at the moment. The mystery is getting deeper. That serial killer is giving me the creeps. Also, although I find the male lead extremely adorable and sincere, I do have a soft spot for the ex too. I kind of feel sorry for him. But he lacks a backbone so I will root for our county bumpkin. I am thoroughly enjoyed watching him loudly proclaiming his love for GJH , completely unaware of the fact that his mom was just round the corner. That scene was hilarious! I have a feeling that after the initial disappointment, his mom would come round to accepting GJH. She seems like an understanding lady. She had always been supportive of her. KHN has won me over. I have never watched any of his shows because but I shall definitely watch some of his previous shows. In the k-drama world full of arrogant jerk heroes, his openness is very refreshing. He seems to be wearing his heart of his sleeve. I loved how he bounced back after she rejected him. That reminds me, I started watching the most talked about show, 'Goblin'. I finally gave in and decided to see for myself what the hype was all about. Till now, I am not disappointed. I am only on EP4 atm. @40somethingahjumma omg! another Thank You fan! I thought I was the only one who loved the show because there wasn't much discussion/ reviews/ recaps of the show. Jang Hyuk definitely helps! I am going to watch My Country only for him! He's so effortlessly charismatic! *fangirl alert* Thank You, Fated to Love You and Secret are my all time favourites. They have left an indelible mark on this then uninitiated K-drama fan.
  2. @lollyminx I love that cat of yours! I agree with you on the neighbourhood having a quaint small town charm. It's very realistic. Yes, the ladies are super mean and nosy but that's true for many small town neighbourhood ladies who feel threatened by an arrival of an outsider. The talented writer does deserve the credit for the concept. I love the location. I can appreciate it a lot more because on Netflix I can get the best picture quality. Very detail is so much magnified. The location gives me the feels of another drama of Gong Hyo-jin, 'Thank You' where she was absolutely brilliant! But then she is brilliant in every project that she takes up! But without diverting, the set/location/ setting seems similar to 'Thank You'. I some day wish to visit Jeungdo, where the fictional island was set. I find the whole experience of watching this drama quite delightful as the characters seem to be refreshing, the location stunning. (The sunset scene as the two leads stood talking on their way to the railway station). As an audience, it's a great sensory experience and I do appreciate the production team for such detailed handwork and thoughtfulness. In this age of VFX, creating a simple canvas is often more challenging than a grand VFX rich one. I should stop waxing lyrical about the drama and move on to another but this gives me 'Thank You' feels and I can not stop shamelessly fan-girling about 'Thank You'.
  3. Take a bow, @bebebisous33 ! *applause* That was very well put! You gave me much to ponder over. Brilliant how you deduced that the lawyer's wife might be the dreadful 'Joker'. Also, the theory of the stalker and the Joker being two different people might actually be right. Your comments were extremely insightful. Besides being 'Certified PAC Member' , you are also most certainly a 'Certified Amateur Sleuth'. So I finally watched Ep2. I am taking my time watching the episode, relishing it. YS continues to slay as the simple country bumpkin with a heart of gold. The actor does such a great job in conveying that sincerity and innocence of a simple country bumpkin who is all brawn and heart. The guy is completely smitten and it's adorable how he follows DB around claiming to patrol the area as a cop. #justdoinghisduty (as a man completely smitten who also happens to be a cop) The neighbourhood ladies continue to be nosy and make DB's life miserable. I am anticipating DB's mom's reaction when she finds out that YS is actually smitten with DB. Not an educated lawyer as she believes but an unwed, single mother who runs a pub and the most 'hated' person in the neighbourhood. I hope she continues to support DB and her son and approves of the match. Since she herself had experienced the hardships after being widowed, trying to earn a livelihood by doing a job which was then frowned upon, I have a feeling she would be much more accepting than the neighbourhood ladies and gossip mongers who would have a field day, if they find out that the most eligible bachelor is grabbed by the most ineligible person in the neighbourhood. I loved YS's mom's reaction when DB jokingly asked her if she was willing to consider her as a DIL as her youngest son was now back in town. So I am expecting some fireworks there but I am sure eventually the mother would accept her with open arms. DB has already made a place for herself and her son in her heart. The scene at the railway station was quite heartbreaking. So was the scene where mother and son break down. I wanted to comfort that poor boy. Such a brave boy! So much maturity at such a young age. Just too heartbreaking. If that had not already ripped your heart apart, get ready for another emotional onslaught. The scene at the railway station! Whatever recovery my heart had made , thanks to the comic moments between YS and DB, it was again plunged into pain as DB revealed about her dream job. Sometimes an innocuous 'Thank You' is all one needs to brighten up one's day. I like how the drama has a mixture of comic and heartbreaking moments. Never a dull moment in the show yet. The audience goes through a roller-coaster of emotions! Oh and did I mention how my heart hurt when DB and her ex were sitting and discussing the past. It broke my heart to see how much she loved that guy. She still continues to wear that bracelet which he got her! What does that mean for our adorable YS? Will he get a chance to make his place in her heart? I think the scene that left me on tenterhooks was the 'awkward' last scene! I can't wait for the next episode where all hell will break loose !
  4. The main leads are too adorable! If anyone was still unsure of how cute they were, watching the first episode should prove it to them. I loved the pilot episode. It was so refreshing and delightful. I enjoyed the little quirks of a small town; nosy neighbours, the local politician and his clout, hostility towards the 'newbies'. I am praying fervently and hoping that the dead body is not of Dongbaek. I have never watched Kang Ha Neul in any drama before and I was pleasantly surprised. I thought his expressions were absolutely spotless whether being smitten by the stranger or that heartbreaking expression as he uncovers the dead body. I hope it's the waitress, and not Dongbaek as she was in the habit of stealing small trinkets lying around. Also, I would take a moment the other male lead with the baby! That baby makes him look super cute! If I wasn't already so impressed with the first male lead I'd surely 'ship' him with Dongbaek. Finally, that cute baby! OMG! The baby's adorable! The little munchkin has won my heart. Onto Ep2 now. I wish Netflix would stream them simultaneously. The wait is killing me!
  5. @bedifferent: OMG! This is really unbelievable! I can't believe that I finally found someone who is a big fan of 'Thank You'. I have watched and re-watched it countless times. I can't get over it. I love the soundtrack. I wish it was available somewhere. 'Thank You' and 'Fated to Love You' remain my most favourite dramas of all times. (So, it's no surprise that I love Jang Hyuk! He's super cute and sexy. He's like wine that gets better with age. (#shamelessfangirling) These two dramas are real stress busters for me. I haven't come across a drama that has affected me this deeply. So I can relate to being in a 'mess'. GHJ has a knack of selecting great dramas. And did I mention she's super pretty? This drama too seems extremely promising. The promos seems to be heartwarming. GHJ has excellent chemistry with no just her male costars but what I find most wonderful is her rapport with child artists. This was most evident in 'Thank You'. Then it was in the drama 'Greatest Love' , though the opportunities and scenes weren't as many as in 'Thank You'. GHJ was so realistic as the single unwed mom struggling to fight against social prejudices. Recalling her struggles brings tears into my eyes. I think everyone did a fabulous job in that drama. A special shout out to the Grandfather who was simply adorable.
  6. I got so excited after watching the trailer on Netflix that I had to come here looking for the thread. I love Gong Hyo-jin! She is my most favourite actress. She never fails to impress with her diverse characterizations. I really admire her for taking up projects that deal with some really different, difficult and challenging issues in the society. She is so effortless in each of her characters! How does she do that every single time? When the Camellia Blooms seems interesting and after a long lull I find myself excited about a show. The trailer was so heartwarming. I think it's Gong Hyo-jin really who makes her characters so appealing, relatable so much so that you not only end up falling in love with them but they also leave such an indelible mark on you. I am biased towards 'ThankYou' because it has my favourite Jang Hyuk, but nevertheless the Gong Hyo-jin portrayla of a single unwed mother with a child battling aids has truly left an indelible mark on me. I have enjoyed her other shows too be it Pasta, It's Okay, That's Love, The Greatest Love , Master's Sun and Don't Dare to Dream..... How come she gets paired against such good looking and charismatic men in all her shows? Apologies for this long rant/ fan-girl post! Hoping to interact with all the other followers of the show and discuss, rant and rave as the show progresses!
  7. I just can't get over how cute SSR looks , especially when he's doing a rom-com scene. Why is he so charming? Why! Take pity on our poor hearts.
  8. He's the only reason why I am going to continue. He has won me over in TLE. I never found myself as conflicted as I was when I was watching TLE. Even surprising myself by supporting our beloved 'Pyeha'! I wish SSR all the luck in the world as he pursues his career as the male lead. He is such a versatile actor that he effortlessly slips into his characters, charming his audience. P.S. I love his voice. #fangirl
  9. Dear Perfume, I have been so excited since I heard of SSR's new show. However, it is with great regret I must mention that I haven't warmed up to the show yet. I think the female lead's hair is kind of distracting. But SSR looks sooooooooooooo good. I'm feasting my eyes on him. A real treat for sore eyes. It also helps that he's so charming. He's charming even when he played a villain. It's really unfair how effortlessly charming SSR is no matter what role he takes up. There's an innate charm in him. I am hoping the show gets better because I had been waiting to see SSR in a rom-com after I watched The Last Empress. He has brilliant comic timing. Not everyone is well-versed in the art of comic timing. He's a natural. Being such a brilliant actor , he makes watching his shows a real treat for the audience. This brings me to another of my quibbles. Although the show is touted as 'comic', the comedy seems quite 'forced', contrived. They really need to up the ante to prevent the show from being just another 'rom-com'. The female lead although I sympathize with her situation, being a middle-aged homemaker , stuck in a rut for 17 years, unfortunately isn't really pulling her weight, or is it just the script? The show sometimes gives me the vibes of 'Romance Is a Bonus Book' , a show I wasn't really a big fan of. SSR has my love and complete support though the show hasn't been successful in engaging my interest yet. I don't wait with bated breath as I had been for his previous show. It's a little disappointing to me because he's such a brilliant actor. It seems a 'waste' of his talent. Please redeem yourself and live up to our expectations dear 'Perfume'! A lot is riding on you, especially since you have such a versatile actor in your kitty. A very very disappointed fan...
  10. I thoroughly enjoyed the series! Week after week it had kept me hooked to it. There was never a dull moment. NGM being so charming and such a fabulous actor helped. The cat and mouse chase was just what the doctor ordered after I finished The Last Empress and there was nothing to fill the void. The plot was intelligently crafted. I hope we get Season 2 and it is as tightly knitted as Season 1. Rooting for NYJ. Also, I would take to mention the amazing job the villains did. Both Dr. Seon and LJJ. Gosh, LJJ was soooooooooo creepy. That cold hearted smile of his, his whistling ... *shudders* The actor did a brilliant job of acting like this cold, ruthless, merciless 'murderer'. I tried to sympathize with him after his back story was revealed but he was beyond redemption. As for Dr Seon, that cunning smile! The shrewd expressions! All three main actors did a fantastic job in my opinion. Thankfully, there was no 'romance' to dilute the thriller. Though TBH, I thoroughly enjoyed the romance between Prosecutor Jung and Ms. Oh! They provided the much need comic relief when things got too tense. Overall, definitely one of the best series of the year 2019 and definitely added to my list of favourites with The Last Empress. Bidding it goodbye with a heavy heart. Hope to see the charming MGN soon!
  11. Squeal!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SSR is back! He's so cute. Looks adorable when he is doing comic scenes. He's fab in villainous roles too. *sigh* Is there anything he isn't good at? *making moon eyes* Thank you @katakwasabi ! When is this show starting? I hope it starts soon. Doctor Prisoner had been keeping me company after The Last Empress. But that too is ending soon. I can do with some comedy now and of course romance! Also, can anyone provide the English subtitles of the teaser please?
  12. I'm late for the party but I'm relieved to know that it isn't the case of latest episode not being uploaded but rather no new episode aired on Thursday. Rather disappointing for the fans as we eagerly wait for the show, especially for Namgoong Min! That guy is sooooo charming. I think I fell in love with him in Beautiful Gong Shim and I have been avoiding The Girl Who Sees Scents because I am not ready to see him play a negative role. I'm sure he aced it going by all the rave reviews of the show. But my poor heart isn't ready yet, so I'm watching Undateables! Gosh! He has the most charming smile and his acting is so effortless. Anyway, moving on to LJH, I'm sorry I could not sympathize with him. His sob story could not melt my heart. He is beyond redemption. He is a cold- hearted, calculating, ruthless murderer, without any feelings of compunction or regret. Despicable! Also, why is NYJ unable to see what a back stabber Director Seon is! I don't understand why sometimes intelligent characters acting completely contrary to themselves. I hope this is just a ploy on NYJ's part to fool and to bait the bigger fish. I think this might be the reason why I didn't like the latest episode. Can we get the old sharp witted NYJ back, please?
  13. I don't much care about the romance/ lack of romance. In fact, it's better without any. I am enjoying this battle of wits way too much to care about the romance or lack of it. NGM is acing it as an anti-hero. Such a fabulous actor. I love watching the play of different expressions on his face. Absolutely brilliant and mesmerizing. Every time I watch a K-drama, I seem heedlessly face in love with the male leads. The credit goes entirely to these fabulous actors for doing such a fantastic job that one just can't remain immune to their charm. I would also like to admit that KBC is doing such a good job as a villain that as a viewer I detest him and he makes my blood boil with his cold hardheartedness. He is easily one of the best villains of 2019. It would be hard to beat this cold, calculative, manipulative doctor villain. Every new episodes he outdoes himself scaling new heights of being the most detestable guy on screen. But at the same time, I wait with bated breath to see what his next move will be. In this game of chess, let's see who gets 'check-mate'. My bets are on the cool, composed, not to mention suave NGM. Both the actors are brilliant and they play a mjor role in making the show so brilliant. Looking forward to more excitement and new twists. Let's see how NGM maneuvers to get himself out of tricky situations again.
