  1. hahahha... isn't he supposed to have face blindness? so why go through so much effort to change appearance. not like he can tell that this is a hot version of her. LOL..
  2. just randomly popping my head in and the stills fill me with so much Qs! -- do PDs realize how much it costs to make perms on naturally straight hair? why is it always associated with being frumpy? LOL.... -- why do stylist always choose oversize glasses which is actually a no-no if you are a regular wearer? (public service announcement: when you pick glasses, smile. your cheeks should slide in nicely and not push the glasses up. if it does, it is too big for your face) -- so does she straighten her hair and change colour and puts on contact lenses every time she meets him as that other girl?
  3. no worries. sometimes I wonder why some plots get stuck in our brain but we forget others..... 512
  4. another movie plot -- it was japanese and I watched it on a flight. so maybe it was decent hit? has anyone seen it and remember the name? it was a train station master... putting in spoiler as it is quite long.... can't believe I remember so much even though I watched it years ago! 970
  5. @sushilicious @triplem ~ do either of you remember these movies? think it was HK and watched them YEARS ago. only remember bits of the story. so plot#1: guy is undercover cop and so infiltrates mafia. as part of his cover, he starts making move (or maybe it just happens that way) on the villain's daughter who is a real spoilt brat. he even marries her to maintain cover. then girl becomes kind of sane? -- anyway, think she warns him when she as well as dad starts realizing his true identity. and there is a big shoot out and villain is killed. she meanwhile runs off to cambodia/thailand or somewhere and she is actually pregnant and living in some country side thinking guy has abandoned her. however, despite himself, he fell in love with her for real and so comes to get her in the end.... plot #2: guy is ex-criminal and comes out of jail after many years. everything has changed. no one to talk to except the young son of his cranky landlady. she is either divorced or widowed. they have this kind of slow antagonistic romance -- basically she doesn't trust him and he sort of finds her old and prickly (even though she is younger than him! hahahha)... anyway, she gets appendicitis and he rushes her to hospital and she then changes her mind about him and feels that he is alright. then I don't remember what all happened but something about his old gang?.... in the end, he leaves with her and son to macau? or somewhere in the hope to start a new life where his past crimes don't drag him. 962
  6. kekekek... so either he dies or he leaves? based on the video, this looks like a gentler version of the bodyguard movie with whitney houston except she is nice and not stupid? kekeke.. yea I watched it and basically my reaction was "meh". hahahahah... so I won't say since you liked it but yea. there was something missing for me and so it just got on that finished but forgotten pile. used to watch lee seo jin before he became a big star and have watched him even in daily/weekend dramas! LOL..... well this was the only drama of his that I liked. basically it is all about the chemistry and this drama is fascinating because he was actually the second lead. he wasn't supposed to get the girl. but since the audience fell in love with him, the writer wrote it in such a way that she ended up with him and the first lead ended more or less alone but had a different journey! so that way, quite memorable. 962
  7. sometimes I wonder why I am so bored with romance dramas these days but then I watch a scene like this from a classic and I know! when I first watched this scene, my heart was like dugun dugun from all the chemistry! and it was their first interaction and they were strangers. what a meet!! this is how melos are made! @triplem @kokodus @ktcjdrama @Sejabin @sushilicious @Lawyerh @staygold ~ just watch the first minute and half. and sushi -- think you might enjoy beautiful days as it is kind of a dark romance in a way of the good old fashioned kind... 956
  8. @Sejabin ~ try the ones I mentioned (phoenix with lee seo jin and scandal with kim jae won). @ktcjdrama ~ other melos I can think of are also quite old but I loved them enough to re-watch. try suspicious housekeeper if you are looking for something completely different. another classic is beautiful days with lee byung hun and choi ji woo -- lee was supposed to be the second lead but he ends up getting the girl due to sizzling chemistry!!!! @sushilicious ~ there have been some melos that have been surprised me. more than the story, the strength of the melo really lies in its emotions and how well the actors sell it it you. so it really does require some serious acting chops which is why melos tend to draw in older or experienced actors. once the emotions are in place, you are on edge wondering when it will all fall apart. 956
  9. watch something that has already aired. have you watched 'phoenix' with lee seo jin? one of my fav melos.... or for a good makjang melo with all round stellar acting from every single character, try scandal with kim jae won. 952
  10. saw a few episodes that I missed out on.. watched pieces of the ending and it looks like a good one. am enjoying the strong characterization of all the characters including the side one. in the episode where IT guy Moon's background is revealed and it was good acting even for a small role. the drama highlights how ruthless corporates can be and how our loyalties and emotions can sometimes blind us and confuse us while working. what are we working for? auditor Noh is fun to watch as he is not boring. like chairman of haesan described him -- one overlooks and thinks noh is a pushover but he turns out to be a tiger instead. it was quite amusing to see noh reject haesan chairman with logic -- who would work for a company that is broke and mis-managed? hahahaha.... noh's conversation with moon really highlighted what drives noh -- he too was once a banker that only cared about performance but his father-in-law's death changed him permanently. for that conscience, he was transferred to regional banks but he didn't change his perspective or feel that it is useless to do the right thing. instead, he became more determined to do what is right. so neither money nor offer of promotion really tempts him. but noh is so warm and even struggles with how to survive in this corporate jungle -- so he is still relatable. he doesn't become this character that we look from afar as we cannot understand. at his heart, noh is driven by his family and thats what continues to motivate to do what is right.
  11. @Sejabin ~ this church is historical landmark and used often for filming (though there are plenty of churches of Seoul). see march birthday post for details regarding this church: 928
  12. 918 hahahah... @sushilicious @Lawyerh ~ good to know that I am not the only one feeling really sleepy today. it is so hot!
  13. 916 waaah, feel so zonked. is it the heat? after-holiday blues?
  14. kekeke... then he is one amazing con artist! he should A+ for effort no? 890
  15. kekeke... seriously? she is actually quite bad at her job then no? 890
