  1. I'm watching & enjoying it. The characters are different than many of the dramas I've seen. The setting of a "third rate" college is interesting- most dramas I've seen have been set at "elite" colleges. The U.S. equivalent seems to be a vocational or tech school (which is where I work!), so I'm seeing students that walk our halls. I will say that, while I like the lead girl's roommates, I want to know what brought them to the school. I hope we get some of their backgrounds.
  2. Still enjoying, in general, but kinda sick of... Anyone else watching this still?
  3. I'm enjoying this, but wonder when we'll meet the "brothers from the dragon clan" mentioned in the synopsis?
  4. Actually, it didn't strike me as that similar. They just happen to be slice-of-life dramas. ML is Very different from Elizabeth and GTY isn't like Mr. Darcy at all. -In P&P, the Bennet family was uncommon in the number of daughters, in SoML, many children was the norm. -In P&P, Lydia was headstrong and frivolous, but she was not malicious and she was enticed by a man who had done that type of thing before. Molan, who was both malicious and manipulative actively seduced her husband. -In P&P, Mr.Darcy is rich and noble, and above reproach, while GTY has had to fight for everything he has and has a terrible reputation. -In P&P, Mr. Darcy's good reputation was a a key aspect of his character whereas it was GTY's specifically bad reputation that caused him so much difficulty over the years, i.e. getting blamed for his cousins' actions & having trouble getting a reputable bride. -Elizabeth has never had any real hardship (the Bennets are not rich but comfortable enough), but ML has had many trials -The royalty played very little in P&P, but was essential in SoML Mothers who are silly, fathers who are not actively engaged in their children's lives, and a romance that starts with a personality clash are just the norm for family stories and romances. That being said, I do love the slice-of-life genres and that was one of the things that made Jane Austin's works, and this Drama stand out in excellence.
  5. So I was thinking about why GTY wants ML to lose her temper or show negative emotions to him and, while we see the benefit of her showing her less than perfect side, I can see a good reason for him to want to see it. Both his Stepmonster and his evil ex showed him sweet faces for years. His Momo, who has always been there for him tells him like it is. ML also freely argued with him and gave him a talking to when he deserved it before they got married. As they have gotten closer, and ML is so supportive & sweet, I wonder whether part of him has been waiting for the shoe to drop. And what a relief when it does!
  6. It may be my soft heart, but when ML told her maids that she didn't want to rely too much on her husband, my mind filled in "because losing him would devastate me more than anyone else." I felt her first love was one she got talked into. Her second marriage prospect was one she was only luke-warm about. Her husband is someone who has handed her the world.
