@triplemI do not like RomComs. :D And it's different if a drama has romantic elements, but wraps into a slice of life story or the drama is just about cheesy lines, a superficial story and lot of Kdrama tropes. :D 

 

The Package is a slice of life drama with romantic elements, yes!

Pedodontics is a wonderful branch I don't know why people are not preferring it. We can play with children and become children again. LOL.


Kokodus....trust me when I say there’s a BIG reason why people don’t go there...children are the most difficult of patients.  Even babies are easier... because they don’t fight back or resist.  Negotiating with a tantrum prone toddler is worse than negotiating with a terrorist.  
 

What you have said (in bold) is the romanticized KDrama version of pedodontics.  The reality is more like this

 

1. they won’t open their mouth or hold it open long enough for you to do anything.  This will mean you may have to sedate them to do anything.

2. they would cry and scream at you (and their parents would be increasingly annoyed that you aren’t competent because they are stressed too - which could result in them yelling at you too)

3. you would have to talk to parents/grandparents who aren’t doing the “right thing” by letting their children stay on the bottle for too long (rotting teeth), too much candy and sweet drinks etc...and they would get all defensive

4. children bite and scratch...they do...hard to believe but they do...especially when they are scared...and you are in close proximity because that’s the part of the body you’re working on.

 

I am not saying don’t do it but you need to make that decision based on reality or you will find yourself disappointed in the long run.

@triplem, I've just started watching Chocolate, but don't think I can go on. Between being sad for the leads already combined with food porn to make me hungry, so far, that's 2 strikes. :(

@Lmanglathank you. @kokodus I at one point was contemplating on going to a low graded school, but the schools was very far away and it doesn't look like those reputable good schools. (As in, there is no good vibes to the school). so after some debate, I was persuaded into going a school that is just right beside my house but the school(Class) that i entered in, I am only eligible for the grade 3 class (Which is the worst grade), but as much as being in the grade 3 class, I subsequently improved in my studies. After 4 years, I have to enter an institution that has a bad reputation because it's known for people who doesn't study. (Due to me being in the grade 3 class, I was prepped to go there, no choice). After 6 years of going through that low graded class, i managed to pull myself through with a 3.7GPA and got myself to a diploma. :) So moral of the story, @kokodus it honestly doesn't matter where you pick, as long as you can study and not get bad influence by others, it actually will work out wherever you go. At the same time it's all about luck, what type of teachers you will meet, it will greatly affect you. So good luck!

 

@Lmangla But at the same time as much as i calculate how much my parents wants me to stay but I am always stuck in between the idea of do i focus on my parents or myself to determine if i want to go overseas or not. So up till now i still can't get a definite answer as should I go or not. :)

Could Chocolate have a sadder start? On ep 2, and seriously thinking about giving it up.

 

And, it STARTS with the female lead agreeing to date the male lead's best friend????? Even though, she's in love with the male lead? And, so crying?

 

@triplem, this is not the drama for me after all.

There are some touching & angsty moments but they are not really that bad. There is something hopeful about the drama in spite of its rather depressing setting . The food porn is rather therapeutic for me as it will be for the FL . Hang in there -  the writer is creative in how she brings the OTP together each time in spite  of the slow burn romance .  The thread is still active . So come drop your thoughts if you do continue-  I am one of those still not done with the drama .

there will be a time jump after that ( several in fact)

@triplem, I just have one question for you. When does Chocolate stop being just all about pain? I thought you said it was warming, but does it take half the drama episodes before there is ANY happiness?

@nrllee hahaha. You think I didn't know any of this I have worked as a intern in one of the most busiest govt hospitals in the country. And I attended my pedo postings right during the summer holidays, so it was jam packed all the time. I was pretty sure my ear drums were busted while I was there. Lots and lots of screaming. Haha. I have experienced everything you have said and more, but it still didn't faze me. 

 

And you are wrong if you think adult patients don't scream and throw tantrums. Apparently there are some adults who have not grown up and have the qualities of a 2 year old and it is our job to deal with them too. And trust me it's not cute. Lol. Once a patient just jerked on the chair and pushed my hand right when I was giving him LA and the needle went right through my glove into my finger. So there are risks no matter which age group they belong to. Kids are not that difficult to deal with once you adapt right child management techniques. We have a paper on child management and child psychology during our final year. Preventive dentistry is something that I believe will flourish in the future. But it's only my third and last option I would opt for it only if others didn't work out, which hopefully will not be case.

Hahaha @stroppyse You are just like me. I stopped watching chocolate after the 2nd ep. Tooooo slow, Too depressing for me. If you continue and get hooked on in later eps, you let me know.

I can’t remember. I think 3rd / 4th episode . Maybe because I hv a different view about death & pain , so I never found the drama  dark . Or maybe I am a sucker for pain, since I don’t mind angst despite complaining about it :lol:

I stopped watching at Ep4.  It was just blow after blow of tragedy with no breather.  I started to get really frustrated with the writer, “Come on!! Give them a break already?” :lol:.  And then it was set in a hospice??  So I thought...enough already...now just have that extend to the people around them?  So I gave up. 
 

@kokodus  good for you.  At least you aren’t going into it with rose tinted glasses.   Good luck with your choice.

that can be a tough decision but it depends. so which of the options is it?

1. a temporary move - you are studying and coming back. in that case, it is easy because it is just a few years..

2. don't know - in that case, things will decide once get closer to graduate and on the opportunities you get. that can be hard to predict because you never know what will happen. I graduated during a recession which means all my plans for myself went kaput.

3. most likely permanent -- in that case, you need to be at peace with whichever way you choose. if you choose to stay, then you need to be happy and content with the decision. years later, you don't want to be frustrated that you didn't live and explore your dreams. when that happens, everyone suffers and the family usually ends up in all sorts of trouble as everyone is irritated and annoyed with each other. if you decide to leave, then you need to be mentally prepared that you may not be able to be there physically for your parents at all times -- it is not a bad or good thing to be leaving the nest; simply a cycle of life and something most people do. moving somewhere else for better job conditions is natural part of the economy in most countries.

 

good luck and hope you figure it out!

@LSGLMH_88ok 5th ep is good. Mainly because Jiu Chen finally showed some form of human emotion. HE SMILED. I had to rewind a couple of times to make sure that he really smiled. He did!!!! I saw his lips curving upward. It was a smile. LOL. It takes a fluffy cute puppy to bring out that side of him. 

 

@Sushimi Good luck to you too!!! I agree no matter where you go, only you can enrich yourself, the school and the surroundings can help you only so far. You have to have that determination and strength to move forward and make your life better.

@cenching i think there has not been a story which has not been told before...the beauty lies in expressing the same story in a different ways... there are whole lot of cliches but it matters that how you are expressing those cliches to audience...all the romances have already been told at certain point of time...

 

Which episode are you on and how are you finding it/?? Don't tell me that you are going to be MIA like @mouse007 :D 

 

@kokodus i thought you are not interested to watch it... :D if you see him off screen , it is very hard to think that this guy plays such a poker face character...and JC becomes cute too gradually... there are scenes where he flickers his fingers on Ling Xi's forehead....there are total 3 and those were cutest...

@LSGLMH_88 Yeah tbh, I am still not very much interested. That is normal though especially for long dramas like these it takes some time. So until I get hooked, I am just going to watch one ep a day and ffd thru all the boring parts. Seriously you need to tell me what the deal is with that bald tattoo guy. I skipped thru all his parts. Are they demons or something? I have no idea. There is a abandoned kid in story now, is it Ling Xi? 

 

I think @mouse007 is hibernating to watch all the eps at once maybe to not get spoiled?

Yes the missing kid is ling xi.... ling xi is pricess of shan ling tribe... that bald guy is a minister in shanling tribe... he is bad like really bad and he is the main villain...however you need to watch it to understand how he reaches to the point of no return...he is not really bad initially... hwoever he did have some grey shades in him... as i said you need to watch the drama to understand it...

Yes thank you!

 

 

Anyways..Busted 3 is coming to town! Woohoo! @thanie since you have Netflix you should consider watching variety shows too! Busted series for example have a story narration plus games and characters that are interactive. Ps. Some of our oppas are in it too! I love it! They are making a S3 soon! Yay!
