  1. The screenshot of RJH's passport? Where is that scene? I did not remember seeing it in ep. 13?
  2. I became fond of Ha Ji-won and her expressive eyes after watching "Chocolate". I don't watch dramas very often, so although I have known her name for a long time, but "Chocolate" was actually my 1st drama of hers. Hope to see her in a new drama soon.
  3. Adding an additional comment: I found the birthday party kisses between CY&LK quite memorable. It was sudden yet casual. It did not feel lustful, in contrast, it felt healing, assuring, and protective. It characterized the deeper love shared between the two characters. Don't know the exact words to describe, but it felt different in a good way.
  4. I thought there were quite some memorable dialogues during the last 2 episodes. Overall, to me, this was a good drama with nuances and depth of life. It's not solely just about the two main characters and their love story. But each detail and character (whether it's small of large) serves their purpose. I remember reading a comment from someone (I apologize for not remember their username) comparing this drama to a fine wine and I share similar sentiment. There is not anything extraordinary or unexpected that you make you go "Wow" about the storyline, but its depth slowly seeps into you as the story unfolds. And by the end of the drama, you (or at least to me) go "If I can live and treat everyone around me with such depth and a good heart, I could have contributed a bit more beauty to this life". I am not someone who likes to nitpicking every little unnecessary detail in a drama (ex: pointing out this particular character/scene is so unrealistic and whatnot). What I look for is the "bigger picture", whether I see some meaning after watching it. I'm glad this drama gave me a good feeling and that I did not waste my time at all. PS: Watching this drama also made me fond of Ha Ji-won and her expressive/electrified eyes.
  5. My initial impression of this drama was that I found it to be quite funny and entertaining during the first 6 episodes, but had not thought much of the storyline. But the last couple of episodes are getting quite interesting. I'm waiting patiently to see Seri returns to South Korea and getting some actions there.
  6. My personal thought: Cha-Young's mother might be a criminal, but she is still CY's mother. I think the writer is putting in a "morality" issue here. No matter how wrong the parents can be (to their own children or anyone else), but children always owe their parents the responsibility of having giving birth and raised them. So CY paying back her mother's "debt" to that husband is a way for CY to (1) help her mother lessen the crimes that she might have committed (2) also able to "payback" (being filial) to her mother, as a result. Now, how many of us love their parents "enough" to do that in real life? I don't know. But I see the writer's depth in putting in that detail.
  7. I started noticing Ha Ji-won's expressive eyes very expressively during the last few recent episodes.
  8. [I said this before, a couple weeks ago, but feel like repeating myself again, as watching the latest episodes has confirmed my initial thoughts.] I find this drama very likable, not because it has anything special nor extraordinary, but it gives off quite a heartwarming feeling and has a subtle depth.
  9. There is something likeable about this drama for me. It's not about the cliches or how tragic the characters/storyline can be. But I see nuances and depth in the small details.
