  1. random thought on ep 5 _ so why do female leads in dramaland never dress appropriate for the weather? Surely their expensive phone has weather app? Why not pack a light shawl/stole/sweater/jacket in a handbag? Hahaha .... and dae joo must have a core temperature lower than gal hee as he is forever wearing sweatshirt plus overcoat? Why so cold? Will the glacier melt if veronica park also offers her armpits to warm his hands?
  2. LOL @triplem ~ this armpit skinship in ep 5 had me laughing out loud that I had no idea what he was saying. first reaction "thats gross! did some cologne/deodorant company pay for PPL? we protect you from armpit sweat and so you can warm your girlfriend's hands during cold times?" but just as an aside, yes, armpits is supposed to be warmer than the rest of the body and so in freezing cold temperatures, one way of warming your hands is by putting it under your armpit as a way of warding off hypothermia/frost bite. (saw it in some english movie which I can't remember but there was LOTS of snow, up to hips and it was life & death situation where they were like literally almost dying from the cold. it wasn't some happy moment but more like sad where you are sure one of the group will die...) but here, it wasn't even that cold for hypothermia or frost bite or snow and why is there happy music? more importantly, what was min ik thinking? so gross! total skinship fail!
  3. yea it is definitely starting off strong and so hopefully it will be able to maintain momentum. so from ep 3 and 4, it is obvious that jenny is song ah's younger sister who was basically kidnapped by shady mom as a tool to help herself hide from police. am surprised that she didn't get rid of jenny as a child. why keep her when she has no qualms giving this girl medicine for allergies she does not have, giving her fake mental ailments and a reputation as a patient with multiple health issues?? as for long term goal, think it is eventually to make pots of money perhaps? the magazine editor said that there are rumours that jenny is the fool as it is the mom who is making the money. so quite possibly, jenny actually is penniless even though she is this designer... won't be surprised at all if she tries to kill eun seok. unlike man soo who is weirdly gullible (or maybe purposefully so), eun seok's antlers are already pinging. he finds it strange that she would lie about the prankster, finds her controlling jenny to not even eat peanuts and then giving her a fake allergy and medicine. so he is already wondering "HUH?"... but my guess is that her attempt to kill eun seok or even jenny will alert others that the iron rose is back and still around... am wondering if man soo is really gullible or pretending to be. he seems like a stalker or maybe just used to having whatever he wants. so he goes along with whatever shady mom says even though to a normal person, we would ask "HUH?" rather than question her, he agrees to everything. so it will be interesting to see if man soo is just playing along in order to get jenny? as for shady mom, man soo seems at least a good son-in-law because he's filthy rich and importantly, as protective (controlling) of jenny as her and listens to all her lies. so she plants herself as the mom in the rich hotel and has a rich lifestyle without paying for it? am waiting to see how dong joo will start investing because it is then going to really pick up steam... yea it will but in some ways, this is not a loving relationship. jenny already recognizes that it is very controlling and is already sort of pushing to have her freedom... so it will be interesting to see if she realizes how poisonous shady mom is on her own or whether others tell her the truth. am guessing that if is eun seok or anyone else, she will see them as a liar but if she finds out on her own, then maybe, she will turn on shady mom?
  4. are you using it as empty store cupboard for your spices? 756
  5. @ktcjdrama ~ not sure if the doc I posted earlier was the right one.. anyway, did manage to find this really short clip (about 2.5 mins) about the still face experiment. it shows how babies read faces and how important that is to them for communication. so it gives us a clue to how devastating it can be for min ik as an adult to not be able to read emotions... so while looking for the specific clip, found some interesting stuff! apparently face blindness isn't that rare.. well maybe min ik's condition of not seeing anything at all is very severe.. but doctors think it might be one in 50 but many don't know they have some version of face blindness!!! so it can either be genetic, progressive or after a brain injury like with min ik. it is quite fascinating to hear some of their stories and experiences in these two clips (it is short, one is about 5 minutes and the other is about 15 minutes) about people living with face blindness. a comment from a viewer on one of the clips: " Well done. I also have prosopagnosia, as do my sister and my father. Watching movies is very difficult because it is hard to know if a character has changed clothes or if it's a different person. It affects my life so much."...... watching these clips and that viewer comment helps me to see how this weird triangle with min ik, veronica park and gal hee is possible...
  6. hahahha... well at least it is not about bad luck. one of my friends had a fish tank and her dad wanted a specific # of fish that fortune teller said would bring luck. but sadly, one fish would keep dying and the number would change to unlucky number. he would replace the fish and it would happen again. LOL. dad finally got frustrated and got rid of fish tank and he was like "we have enough bad luck as it is." 724
  7. LOL... is this fish tank some horrific form of design that will spoil the house architecture? 722
  8. enjoy this time sushi; it won't come back. ... after it is gone, you will realize how nice it is that parent sign papers for you to go on excursions! you were protected in a way and you will value that protection later. 722
  9. kekeke...am always surprised when someone says I sound poetic in soompi because I certainly don't hear it in myself. I hated poetry as a subject to learn in school. seemed so dry and boring. no stories. at least literature was like a drama I could imagine in my head. 720
  10. @ktcjdrama ~ wish I could remember the name but am not able to place it as I watch a lot of documentaries besides dramas. the series was about neuroscience but many documentaries on that topic cover these kind of facts. national geographic channel series called "brain games" shows this kind of info in a fun way. so after racking my brain, my guess is that it is most likely the series called "the secret life of brain" which had five parts and covered brain development in baby, child, teenager, adult and old age.
  11. kekee... sadly we all feel like that sometime regardless of what our age is. one of the funny things that soompi has taught me is I am romantic. LOL. like @triplem rightly pointed out, am not going to be squealing about any OTP moment and instead posting some random out of the box stuff. but it is about developing the confidence to post your thoughts and just have fun. there is lots of value in folks having different thoughts because it adds variety to the discussion. it adds a different persona. think about how boring it would be if we were all saying the same thing. it is why we surf channels!!! hahahah... so don't worry so much if you don't have much to say sometimes. I don't either when folks are posting about abs. rather than appreciate the abs, I am just thinking of the effort the guy has to put in gym and how much food he gives up -- yes, my aunty brain totally kicks in and I have to refrain myself from saying "please feed the boy some rice!" 706
  12. 704 learned something new today -- so stargazing also has to do with a ship? @stargazer187 ~ always assumed that you just like watching stars. hahahahah... me and my science brain.
  13. 702 @nohamahamoud2002 ~ yea good threads can make a drama feel better. but then a bad thread can ruin even a good drama. sometimes, it is a hard fit for us if you feel like you don't belong. other times, few people post and it changes the tone of the thread for the better and people are able to understand even if they disagree. so it all depends on the people. but yea, daily threads are fun place even if small. are you watching shady mom-in-law? it looks good. come join us. left-handed wife is close to ending no?
  14. thanks @sn2111a ~ was hoping that am not boring people when everyone is enjoying the fluff. hahahha... haven't seen beauty inside but in rich man poor woman, the condition was almost like a plot detail that was forgotten after a while. here, we see a condition not only from start but also how it impacts small details of every day life that we don't think about -- like the aspect of getting lunch in a crowded room. as for the voice recognition, it is also about how he is doubting himself and his abilities as his strengths of reading people have disappeared. he correctly assessed the driver was attacking him in the dark room at ep 4 but because gal hee said that he was mistaken, then he assumes that it was his mistake. so he needs to get to a position where he can trust his judgement and recognize his other sense. that takes time. so in this documentary series I watched (which I shared in above post about face blindness, it was about development of brain and different senses -- fascinating stuff), one thing they showed is how we rely heavily on some senses like sight but then when it it is lost like in a stroke or accident, the person has to learn to trust the other senses like smell and voice to recognize the person. that takes time and there is actually a biological and chemical brain process involved -- so the brain has to stop using that part of the brain for sight and rely on the areas where smell and hearing is involved. so the brain has to kind of re-wire itself. but once that happens, the person is able to easily identify someone by their walk or other movements even if they can't physically see them. so min ik does need time -- to accept his condition, for his body to re-wire itself and then, for his survival instincts to kick in and to trust himself.
  15. LOL.... oooh the pressure!! 694
