  1. I think she only meant it as a phrase that youngsters would say. "짱나, 정말" (jjangna jeongmal). The first part is actually a short form of 짜증나 (jjajeung na) which means "irritating" (brings out irritation, to be more precise) and 정말 means "really". Not sure how long the shorter form has existed, but I think older people don't use it. The younger people in Korea are really into shortening every damn word or phrase and older people don't like it (like the ridiculous "ah ah" for "aissed americano"!) It would've been better to translate it as, "you're super-annoying, like Jia might s
  2. I agree, @INJINFAN and @lilyphenix... Maybe it is better for the engineer to date the 50s wife. PiYoung actually may not even want a guy in her life for a while. She will be happy to live with Jia, and won't feel too guilty as long as Dr. Smoothie is alive (and hopefully insane or generally incapacitated to a harmless fellow after a stroke or something). But the 50s wife actually never had a nice life, with her useless husband. The engineer is rich and probably doesn't have much expectations except companionship, so he could be great for a calm and trouble-free life for the woman, who des
  3. Now we are talking! Good scneario, while we imagine how they could all die and make us happy ... She poisons A Mi's drink, but the nekkid ghost does something to distract her and she ends up dropping some in her own drink too. Not enough to kill herself but enough to fall asleep in the bathtub, and she drowns, dreaming of caressing her step-sons cheeks (whichever ones!)... Dr. Smoothie walks in, finds his first love and last love both dead... and then he sees the nekkid ghost too. He could handle the deaths, but not a nekkid dead-dad. He goes permanently insane. His daughter becomes the ho
  4. I had this thought of a macabre ending (as nothing is beyond this writer's crazy mind). What if Sing Won dies during childbirth and the baby survives? BHR agrees to be the baby's mom and PSH goes back to her... They have set it up perfectly for that now. Then why not a whole bunch of deaths? Those here who hate the mistresses can come up with crazy ways the other two can die too, if you want ... Like, Ami finds that her dad is about to die in the hospital after the horse kicked him, she drives off in a hurry, gets into an accident, wrecks her gift car, and dies... What do we d
  5. Actually my Mr. Google says "improves the drama's perfection". It is just that a literal dictionary translation of just the word 완성도 will be "perfection" or "level of completion" ... It means both, so it is really a concept from Chinese that combines the two ideas in English. Google picked "perfection". When combined with 제고 (improve), it should be "improving the level of completion" and not the other meaning. But it is not just completion or perfection, but "proper or perfect level of completion" that is implied in the word. The last syllable 도 (from the Chinese 度) is referring to a "lev
  6. Yes. The word used there actually comes from Chinese, so I thought the Chinese speakers would be able to figure out the sense of the word. I don't think there is a straight equivalent in English. "Perfection" is correct, but with a nuance that it is in the context of a "flawless finish with no loose ends" rather than perfection in a general sense. I think @agenth wondered if the drama was claiming that it is already perfect and they only wanted to make it better. That wasn't it. They were just saying that they want to make sure that everything is perfectly completed. Just what I think
  7. 드라마 완성도 제고를 위해 was the phrase... I think it just means "improve the finish"... The word "finish" is like a "good level of completion". It does not mean that it is "already perfect, so we want to improve the perfection" The word 완성도 can mean perfection, in the context of a perfect completion. 完成度 is the hanja but I don't know Chinese, but some of you may be able to figure out what it means.
  8. I think there is a pretty good chance for this. This writer tries to keep us off-balance, and has had partial success at it. I think the writer would show the brother to actually be a guy with a heart who didn't realize it for a long time. Maybe he now realizes that NGB is the woman for him and goes for it. If he makes that move, there is not much doubt that she will go back to him, and leave the Prof out to dry. We will all love that. The prof may beg his Ex-wife to take him back in, but she and the kids will say no. They may give him a bone that he can be part of their life -
  9. That's fine, but can we have humor with a ghost wearing pants, please? I mean, the old ghost knows his beloved wife was dreaming of doing the nasty with his son whom she raised... and his reaction is to drop his underwear and go underwater to fondle random women. Some humor, this! Never thought that somebody could beat the step-mom in inducing barfs, but the nude ghost did it!
  10. These days I come here just to see all the mischief that @Ameera Ali posts. As much or more fun than watching the drama itself I guess this drama provides ample scope for creative mischief!
  11. I am loving this drama so far. Very well written. Enough mysteries. I like the leads. The ending of episode 3 was rather unexpected (though, I couldn't believe I didn't expect it - because that was really the only possibility!)
  12. Yeah, it was a really a jarring way to react after your sister passed away. Saying "I am the prettiest now" is terrible. Maybe it was shown for humor, but it didn't work. She is definitely a shady character, as the scenes with the housekeeper clearly showed. No idea why they even brought in this unpleasant character into the drama. Totally unnecessary.
  13. I have to say that Park Joo Mi has done a superb acting job as Pi Young in the latest two episodes. She has only had cheerful scenes before that, and some of it even looked a bit over the top. But she has hit it out of the park with shock, sadness, guilt, sternness, disgust, and anger in the recent scenes. I was particularly impressed with her anger in the car. The doc didn't know what hit him! ... I guess now, hopefully, the whiskey bottle will hit him in the head too. He may only be able to hit the bottle after that ===== Certainly. The
  14. Yes. That line didn't mean much. Netflix subtitle was very careless there. 철 좀 들어 just means "just act your age" or "just grow up" or "just become sensible"... The first meaning is what was probably close here. The sister was talking about being the prettiest in the family now, just before that. It is like she always felt that her older sister looked younger and prettier. That is all there was. The real issue was the phrase before 철 좀 들어. It was 저승에선 -> "in your next life" or "in your afterlife". That word 저승 (jeoseung) does not exactly mean "hell". Just wherever yo
  15. Sadly, we didn't get to see a real outburst from HyangGi to GaBin. Oh well... But she went after the dad very well. That young lady is a great actress. The stairwell scene was heart-wrenching, and it was all her acting. The distress on her face and the voice delivery were way too real. It was like she was truly living the horror. Unbelievably intense. But, to those of you who were happy that she called him the B word, she actually didn't. That was thrown in by the Netflix subber. But it matched how she said what she said, so I won't blame the subber at all! What
  16. Yay, that was a nice final episode. Especially beating up a guy at the end, which came out of nowhere, unexpectedly! Haha. I was laughing throughout that scene. I don't want to spoil it for you, so I will wait for all of you to watch the episode. The hospital scene between our leads was really sweet!! And it seems there was a real puppy and a puppy doll like the real one ( gamja/ potato and kokuma/ sweet potato)!
  17. It was heartbreaking to see the 50s wife sitting and crying her eyes out. That was hard to watch. The preview made my day, though. Looks like HyangKi with her caustic tongue will make an appearance again. That episode 7 performance from HyangKi, unloading on her dad, is one of the greatest Kdrama outbursts I had ever seen (and I have watched a LOT of dramas!)... I am looking forward to HyangKi's assault on her idol Nam GaBin, who will deserve every bit of it, just like the dad did! You go for it, girl!
  18. I just realized why I actually even watch this drama. Mostly it is to read the comments here. Much more interesting than the drama itself. Nobody agrees with anybody fully, but it is all just fun fun to read. Keep it up, friends!
  19. That was the scene that upset me most today. I know there are people who think like that lady (and Korean dramas show a lot of such prejudices based on parental background)... but it is sad when a mom teaches her young daughter such screwed up thinking. Even worse, the girl already knew it and completed the line for the mom. Not the first time that she is being taught such prejudices.
  20. And hopefully something nice as a closure for Samantha and the convenience store girl. Damn, we grew fond of all these characters during just 2-3 weeks... and now the drama will be gone just like that. Need a season 2 for sure!
  21. Whoa, what an episode it was, today... Ep 12. Intense. Drama-making at its best. It was so good that it was hard to watch. I don't know how else to put it. And we have to wait a few days for that final episode, feeling sad that this absolute gem is going to disappear just like that. @youactlikeicare, you called it spot on right, in your post above!
  22. It is so sad that this drama has only 4 more episodes. We have seen so many dramas where they drag things on and on for weeks and people get so annoyed with everything. But here is a drama that could have had twice as many episodes, with enough interesting characters and a story with many possibilities. The Korean drama industry can never get things right. Such a gem of a drama, but it is going to end soon. Just when we all fell madly in love with it. Argh!
  23. Yeah, the ladies were nice in the end. They are also acting well. They were supposed to provide some humor, and so were expected to act funny. But they have not overdone it to a stupid extent and annoyed me. Especially the chief lady. She was great with her "what did we do?" expressions when our man gave them a piece of his mind! By the way, is it just me, or does Oh Yeon Seo keep getting prettier as time goes by? I have always liked her as an actress in many dramas, but she looks the cutest in this role. Just a man's opinion. She has been tremendous in this role. Can't be
  24. It may even get into my top-10 all time, actually! A really well-made drama. Little quirky things in the drama catch my attention. Like, today, in the restaurant scene in Epidoe 9. She did not chew or swallow the food in her mouth for almost three minutes from when he said "what do you mean nobody is on your side?" till he said "eat!"... All through that serious and touching conversation, and taking the picture for proof and all that, you can see that she has food in her mouth. She was that stunned at what he was saying. It could not have been accidental. The PD must have as
  25. The quirky nature of the characters and the writing keeps me totally hooked. The ending of Ep 7 had me seriously LOL. Oh Yeon Seo has been superb in this drama. And I appreciate it that the psychological issues are shown in all seriousness.
