Four simple words, but boy were they powerful. Most "normal" people don't know how to be that vulnerable, and here he was pouring his heart out to her in a simple way that was so meaningful and sweet. The extra step he took to bring the scripts she'd left behind. But nothing was more telling than when he asked her if she liked him and she said no. His disappointment was immediate. This couple is so likable in such an off-beat and fun way.

 

I'm not sure that I thought he was disappointed or relieved. Her response of "no" was the answer that he wanted to hear in order to proceed with the marriage. While it's clear that he has started feeling something for her, it's not yet enough to overrule his logical mind which is still shying away from entanglements. Rather if JH has said yes , she liked him, then he would have felt the need to back off from her. Which, perversely, would probably have disappointed him more. This is a complicated story emotionally for the OTP.

 

JH is in similar straits. While his proposal moved her, and she was honest enough with herself to say that it affected her, when she asks him if he likes her in episode 4, I think she got the answer she thought she wanted, it seems to be relief she felt that he had given the "right" answer but there was a touch of disappointment mixed in as well.

 

I really like the fact that the OTP seem pretty balanced so far. That they are both choosing their options, and thinking each other is the best option for them.

I can already tell that her friend that has been in the long-term relationship is going to have heart ache. I will tell any woman, never give up all of your good years to a man. Her friend has pretty much spent her 20's with her boyfriend and she doesn't even seem to have a promise ring, let alone any other sign of commitment. My third eye is tingling, something is awry.

 

I wondered whether it was a lack of communication between them. I think WS does want to marry HR eventually, but he's still trying to make something of himself with his start up, trying to attract venture capital, etc. It may just not have crossed his mind to ask HR to marry him when he may have been taking it for granted that they will be married some day. I don't actually like the stereotype that HR is playing into of a woman who just can't be direct about what she really wants, but rather sends signals that the guy is supposed to interpret correctly. That's so tiring! I did find it funny when SG "decodes" the messages for WS, but SG is almost as clueless as WS is about the signals being sent out and about women in general.

 

I'm sure that HR and WS will have their problems, but I'm also certain that in the end, they'll get back together. However, before they do, I hope that HR finds other things that she may want from her life other than to be a wife and mother which apparently has been HR's dream since she was a child. This was part of JH's ruminations about HR at the end of episode 4, which finishes that HR's dream thus far has only resulted in 7 years of living together.

 

I do like the character of SJ since she seems to be holding her own in that company, however, it's clear that she's dealing with a lot of sexism and sexual harassment in her work place. I probably wonder most about what her story trajectory will be other than the OTP. So, according to JH's ruminations about SJ in episode 4, SJ's dream is to be the president of a company, regardless of which company, and as such, SJ is now at the beck and call of those presidents of companies. However, in some ways, SJ seems tense and at a breaking point. I hope she decides to go and build a company of her own rather than continuing to put up with the rampant sexism in her current work place. She looks as if she has the drive and the intelligence to do so, she now just needs to figure out a product or service to sell to start a company.

 

 

Really looking forward to episode 5. They've tackled JH's family in episode 4. I think they'll tackle SH's family in episode 5, plus possibly have the wedding itself in ep 5 or 6. Then, they will have to deal with the consequences of being married. I guess the cohabitation hi jinks have already started though as they spend more time in the house together with each other. I also though the snoring scene was hilarious. Plus, the breakfast scene as SH has his cup of americano on the sofa with his cat, and JH digs into a full meal for breakfast. :lol:

Started watching this show for Lee Min Ki, and my feelings are mixed, which is why I hesitated commenting on this drama. 

 

After watching the newest episodes it started reminding of what I heard about a famous jdrama from last year, title translated to "Running away is shameful but useful" (Nigeru wa hachi daga yaku ni tatsu). It was originally a manga, then adapted to a tv-series and quite successful, the story about a young woman changing from temporary job to temporary job, trying to find meaning in life and be useful to other ppl, who entered into a contract marriage with a successful young man with a slightly strange temper. Both were quite satisfied with the contract marriage much like an employer and employee are satisfied with each other, but later fall in love.

 

After I wrote the above: Is this show really not a korean adaptation of the above mentioned jdrama? Did I miss something? If so please tell me then I'll edit this post.

 

Aside from this, there are some points about this drama that disturb me, others that touch me, sometimes both at the same time. I often find the jokes funny and most characters flawed but likable.

 

I don't remember watching a kdrama lately or ever where discrimination of women is so explicitly and repeatedly shown. Having been almost raped by her colleague the female protagonist is expected by everyone to just let "some petty thing like this" slide and act as if nothing had happened, the sexual harassement her friend has to face everyday (and despite her fiery character, cannot say a word against), the way her father treats her like she was less than half as much worth as her brother and thinks of himself as the god of his family (as we see from the preview it seems even worse with the male protagonist's father). I think this is a first for me in kdrama (in cdramas it's quite often I think, or maybe that's just reality). We often see women portrayed as weak, stupid, and unable to save themselves in any situation, their only strength being endurance, or rudeness towards those who cannot defend themselves, utterdy dependent on men in all life situations, which rather obviously reflects the way koreans view women. But to make the insult and assaults of men towards women this obvious throughout almost every episode is new to me. I guess it's a good thing because such things need to be addressed, but I do feel uncomfortable watching this and have the urge to slap the men across the face and shake the women because how can they allow such things to happen to them and take it as something you can only accept or run from but not fight against?

 

The other friend of the heroine reminds me of a friend of myself, who decided that after having been together for 4 years (and living together for 1), it would be marriage or break up because if her boyfriend didn't propose to her, he clearly never thought about staying together with her long term and is keeping his way out. Luckily he agreed with her thoughts and they are married now :D While both my friend and the friend in the drama are being slightly overdramatic imo, I do think that 7 years is a time long enough for a man to think of marriage, especially in a country were just living together forever is not exactly socially accepted, is it not? And can you really be oblivious enough to not realize what your girlfriend of 7 years is talking about when she keeps talking about a sofa mainly bought by married couples or talking about other ppl's marriages, and you are both about 30 years old (and she's been doing it so often and for so long that the sofa-seller expects her everyday like an old friend)? Can you? Like honestly?

Exactly. The only way the could do the contract marriage is because they both confirmed that neither would ever be interested in the other. That is the minimum requirement especially for him. He would have been appalled and called the whole thing off completely if she had answered otherwise. So no, no disappointment there.

 

Obviously things will change after a week or two, but not yet.

  @b4l01So he's the first one to feel beating of the heart. I think so too. More than JH actually.  But I asked the question 3 pages ago  what kind of couple will they be. Will it be show-window couple, weekend couple, or sexless couple?

 

 

 

I think show-window couple? Am not really sure but am not choosing sexless couple coz JH might attack SH again. :D

Totally with you, this episode was so touching. Specially the scene at the bus station.  I couldn’t stop crying when she said “For 10 years this luggage got scratched up so much like me. It was shiny when I first came to Seoul whit it”
She compared herself with her luggage. She is scratched too and sad.


When he came bringing her scripts back, it felt like he was returning  her dreams back to her , at least for me and her decision to accept his proposal because he is the only person that needs her. 


OMG I really, really love this Drama
 

 

I was already touched watching it live-stream but when I watched it with sub, the more I felt her loneliness and the struggle she's going through. 

 

Returning her dreams back... that's a good analysis.  I totally agree.

 

Among the numerous drama I have in my plate, this is my most anticipated one.:wub:

 

 

Wow! The thread is now moving fast.  I am so happy to see familiar names whose analysis, I find interesting. @bebebisous33   @Jillia   @USAFarmgirl   and of course the ever reliable @stroppyse .  Though I seldom post comment, I see to it to read your post in every thread I go.   :)

 

Signing out to watch episode 4.

I found this traslation in Youtube.

G R

 

jh: we would like to get married.. i know that it is fast and unexpected but we are getting older bro: did you get pregnant (uses satori) "abe" (lower abdomen)

sh: why did "abe" come in here? (i think that he misunderstands it for shinzo abe)

jh: abe means pregnant

sh: i think there is a misunderstanding but even though we share the same roof we do not have such kind of a relationship

bro: you two live TOGETHER!!

dad: how dare you have a live in relationship with my daughter mom: that unnie that you were living with was your bf?

sh: i think there is a misunderstanding we were just cohabiting

dad: what?? COHABITING jh: (kicks sh and points towards the msg) i ll never make your daughter's hand wet ( basically means that i ll treat your daughter like a princess and not mak e her do any household chores)

I agree. He was expecting her to say no, but it did not hide the play of emotions that played across his face. I felt like you did, yes, he was hoping for and expecting her to say no, because then that meant they could continue to live together and get married. However, it just seemed like her saying no did not give him as much satisfaction as he thought it would.

Ep3 Title: Because This Is My First Proposal

 

Done with EP3.   How can we not love this drama?! it' wonderful That ending scene is my favorite.

 

Will you.. marry me? - Yoon Ji Ho

Yes. He said....

Do you ... like me? - Nam See Hee

No. She said

 

It didn't even crossed my Min that she will do her own  proposal to him.  even with the title as a give  away.

 

1. Aw. That gesture. So we start where we left them - a shocked YJH hearing SH "if you have some time... will you marry me"  question. She's trying to digest  why he's asking her the question. It's late though, he told her she can sleep in  the same room,  with new pillow cover. She said she wanted to leave ( cos she was still in shock at that proposal) left the place but no taxis servicing the  middle of he night.  I was touched by NSH gesture. He knew already, she won't be able to get ride, so he sent text telling her there's really no taxi, and she can stay in her room. She went back..found her inside her old room and I was laughing much when she heard the door lock. But it's NSH locking his own bedroom door.  YJH: why is he locking his door? That should be who should be doing that."  That scene was for cuteness sake added there. He must've have been doing that even before when she was  staying  in the other room but only noticed it.  Morning came,  NSH heard sound, thought it was construction going on but turned out it's  NJY snoring like major one. Again  scene for cuteness  but had me laughing.  First time he probably heard her do that. We tend to do so when we're tired. I'm sure she wasn't doing that when she was staying there. Else he'd had complained already.

 

2. A telling conversation.  NSH came back from work, she's still in her sleepy just woke state and assumed it's morning. He pointed out how long she slept. Heard  tummy rumble and gave her cup of noddles. - big one whiles he only;y has a small cup. She said sorry she meant to  get on the train. She asked why is he being nice to her.  Letting her sleep in the room, giving new pillow case, even giving big cup of noodles. Asked why he proposed.  NSH  told her to ignore it.  But then  she asked.....

 

This is the whole conversation....

 

NJY: "Do you like me?"

NSH: "No.  I gave you the ramyeon because I'm bad with spicy food.  I gave pillow case because it's not sanitary to sleep without one. As for the proposal... I asked you because I need too. If I must get married I though you were the perfect fit."

 

NJY: "What made you come to that conclusion?"

NSH: "I need someone to manage the house. You need a house. I need someone to pay rent on regular basis, and you need a room with paying deposit.  Aren't we the best fit to live together? It didn't mean anything."

YJH: "Sill, why would you marry for a house?"

NSH:  "The why do you think people get married?"

YJH:  "You know... love, affection. That's why people get married."

NSH: "Right. That's what most people think. However do you need love and affection right now? More than perfec place to live

YJH:  (she pondered on this) Maybe... not right now. But I'll need one day too."

NSH. "I See:. I thought you were someone in the same category as I am.  I made a misjudgment. Please consider this conversation never happened. Please enjoy your ramyeon before you go."

 

Aww See He.. it's woman you're proposing!. No matter what,  a woman would want love and affection  coming from man not just material things..

 

I felt his disappointment! esp the last part of the conversation. But I told y'all. He calculated the risk, Took into consideration the benefits of the end result. In Ep 3 he knew already what he needed to do. And when he mumbled to kitty..  "actually,  what we need isn't marriage." then pg 9 post. I was thinking does he need  her for companionship? For comfort? For domestic balance?  because when she was there, he felt his algorithm bliss back

 

But as he said in their conversation. He made a misjudgment. All throughout the conversation his face serious as if it's matter of fact and business. . Of course, there is that percentage of him missing her presence but. He will not admit it, but deep inside seeing the emptiness when she left, like there was a missing piece.  In a win-win for him. The marriage proposal.

 

But we know,  they will eventually fall for each other. He will ignore it. But it will hit him hard and that's what we need to look forward to. How would he handle  such emotional imbalance of his heart

 

3. I love the friendships. Si Joo and Ho Rang..They were concerned with NJH. They picked her at the bus stop, told them what happened.  We like friendships like this. She stayed with  Si Joo that night.  while having conversation, saw  what she was working on and looking. SJ  doing something for client - investors and start-up companies gathering.  Sher organizes that.  JH saw the name of the company and  friend explained  one of the company's app - online dating app. They rate you face, get diff scores, w/c places them in different levels. The the app will introduce you to a man with the same level. JH asked if she can't meet someone in a higher level. She can but then... she has to pay more.  Hah. It's business, baby! that's how app works! if you want something extra... you gotta pay more.

 

But uh-oh! we know who did this app!

 

4. App for dating.. so why not marriage.  At the gathering of investors and start-up companies,  NSH is there explaining how app  (called Dating, Not Marriage. IKR what you're think hehe) works. While explaining the app took questions an investor asked it's called as such why emphasis on dating Doens't he date. Shouldn't  there be love? Like you date because you like and you marry because you love.. you get it, right?

 

We know ow NSH is when it comes to relationship and marriage......so this is how he explained/ answered..to the chagrin panic fce of his CEO buddy. I was laughing at their scene.

 

NSH:  "How can the marriage be a result of love? Marriage limits your freedom. In modern society,  marriage is just a system to preserve your genes. It's nothing more than that. Are you talking about the result of love? That's a false hope of people who are far behind times.  They just want to continue the system in the name of love. "

 

Panicky CEO buddy Mr. Ma Had to step already and appease the  investor who asked the question.. that the app is based on dating not marriage  howeve one shares  values with the one they date and it's love.  after wards.  He whined to NSH if he can just act normal for once,  but of of course he got the death glare. So did a 360 and said  NSH your presentation was perfect.  NSH didn't want to stay and left everything to the CEO ( yeah,  he's more like the boss.. actually)

 

4. You go girl! the writing team gather and the senior writers what NJH to just accept apology from a-hole guy of 3 yrs aka his writing partner. They wanted a harmonious relationship with the team. She was told not to whine about such trivial matters.

 

NJH: "Why should I accept an apology this way? I am the victim. I was sexually harassed. No.  He almost rape me. 

She decided to quit. A d she left. I like YJH dialogue for this scene ."

 

5.You did a great job Ji Ho.. For someone to quit what they love to do most,  it takes courage.  She knew she had to and I glad that she did.  She wished to be a writer. An excellent writer. She was able to wish this and it came true at the age of 30. So we saw her pain tears.  She was comforted by her bff.  After drinking the night away, they set off to a karaokerbar and down the sorrow with some karaoke bumming.

 

Afterwards  NYJ decides to leave cold Seoul and go to Namhae. Her  bags sent to SH place as it's still the address  used, he informed her. She went to get the bag.  She overheard the conversation of SH and his mother. When the mom left

 

6. It was because it was you.

 

"It was because it's you. I need you, not a marriage. That's why I proposed to you" - Nam See Hee

"I knew it was not the right that moment. to fall for him. But still...... it was the first time that someone needed  me.-  Yoon Ji Hoo.

 

 Oh I love the ending.  I love the whole voice over of  NJH  and how  all her life it was the first time that someone needed her.   It comforted.  She said that all her life, she worked hard to be a person who's needed for something.  NSH was the first person who needed her. Awwww and  then it her it. She stepped out of the bus and wanted to hear an answer. She asked the question

 

Will you marry me.  He was surprised for moment. He said yes.  And she run  across to the bus but he shouted. I have a question....."do you like me?  NO. she said.  Ending scene  and  in that moment.... hands over my mouth just.. just I love it.

 

And this is just episode 3.  I'm excited to watch sub for ep 4

 

Once again... the choice of dramas I choose to watch and follow hasn't failed me.  A good story,  good script,  well written one, and terrific acting, and 10 minutes into  the drama, I can tell already if it's good. Usually. 

 

When I like a drama, long post comes out. Sorry it's long  and confusing.  But I'm happy to share.

I found episode 4 really amazing. I feel it's about how bad the world is but they hide it with the laugh. Everything that SH say about the world it's true and that convince JH but I think the point is should they still dream or just give up ?

 

SH character is amazing, he keep telling JH she is amazing about things that nobody exept him would care about. When he told her to use the weird selfie to convince her friends. Priceless.

 

I love that SG (the love expert that don't undestand women) tell WS he is an idiot and you think SG got it when he say mariage but no, they both think about the couch.

When HR begin the argument with WS thinking she is right (I was too) but we realise with her that she is not that right. But when HR cry about her uterus getting old, I found it so funny but it's truly something that sad that botter her.

 

Are the three girl bad friends, none of them never ask the good question. HR is disapointed that SJ don't understand her and SJ disapointed that HR only think about herself and never that SJ can have bad days too. JH can't even tell them her "good news" because they are in a bad place. If one friend got a good news, the other should feel happy and not jealous or anything about it. I feel like they are not that great of friends actually since episode 3 when JH talk in the karaoke about how they chear her up.

 

I love the ending scene were they do the graduate thing. They go get married but they don't know what will happen to them. I kind of don't wanted a preview after that with how great they ended the episode with an amazing time skip. They do it nearly every temperature of love episode but I feel it's the best done here. They end an episode with a time skip and show us the next one what happen before the time skip.

BTW is it just me who thinks that the female lead looks a lot like Park So Dam?

I don’t think so, Park So Dan has very small eyes and and her lips are tiny. I think JSM looks more like Suzy and Yoon Eung  Hye for me the only similarity could be their small face.

 

@CamelKnight  Wellcome thanks for joing.

Really like all your posts! Happy that this thread is alive.  Full of mods too.  :D  

 

https://www.soompi.com/2017/09/24/kim-min-suk-transforms-intellectual-executive-first-life-stills/

 

I went back to retrieve this short interview by Kim Min Seok who plays another supporting BF after AoY2.  There is still a lot of drama left but I feel stroppysse’s opinions seems to match with what he said about his character.   WS is like one of my guy friends who pours all his energy and attention to career, mostly due to the heavy loan load that is hanging over his head, delaying commitment (at least marriage) until his future is more financially secure.  I don’t think WS is a commitment phobe (he obviously loves HR), he just doesn’t display it in a tangible way, showering her with goods or expressing it by giving her things that she likes. He even sneered at the price of the sofa, dismissing its value before he sees it.  I think it’s a subconscious effort, putting things out of reach, so he can’t spend before he can afford it. He shows his love in things that you cannot put a price on, massaging her leg, walking her home after late shifts.  I could be wrong but I guess we will see soon the kind of person WS is as the drama progresses. :)  It’s one of the many aspects of the drama that shows how a career mindset influences the way we approach love and marriage.

 

I too think HR is smarter than she may appear so I am also on board with the thought that she is capable of making a career change.  One that allows her to buy the sofa with her own paycheck instead of relying on someone else, hinting to her BF about it.  I still remember how she dismissed herself at the wedding banquet as someone not as successful when compared to SJ’s career.  Would be nice to see her have more confidence in her own ability.

 

Hi @CamelKnight glad to see you here!

I think show-window couple? Am not really sure but am not choosing sexless couple coz JH might attack SH again. :D

 

 

This is slightly off topic, but I always laugh when I see this bit of kdrama English "show-window" couple. I've noticed the kdrama characters will pronounce this as "show-in-da" couple, so never quite sure whether they're just badly pronouncing show-window or if they're just garbled the grammar of saying "for show". Not that it matters a huge amount since the intent is clear that they mean having a marriage just for show.

 

@jongski, I think the OTP will start out as a sexless couple where they nominally each lead individual lives. However, they will find out shortly that they will have to make some appearances as a couple in order to satisfy the various family and friends in their lives, so I guess that would make them a show-window couple. I think the point will be that they will end up spending more and more time together after all until they start seeking each other out even more. I can't imagine how shocked they might be when they finally realize that they do like each other after all. :)

 

Also, I loved your post, but one quick correction of the below:

NSH: "I need someone to manage the house. You need a house. I need someone to pay rent on regular basis, and you need a room with paying deposit.  Aren't we the best fit to live together? It didn't mean anything."

 

So, your translation is basically right except one tiny bit; SH was saying that JH needed a room without paying a deposit. South Korean rent deposits are very, very high. Something on the order of a year's worth of rent. That's why JH was trying to get a loan from the bank in order to be able to afford to pay the deposit on an apartment, but was turned down as not having enough assets nor a steady enough income to qualify for a personal loan.

Ooh, good point. HR is clearly smarter and more together than she gives herself credit for. She is a team manager at the restaurant she works for after all, so it's not as if she's just marking time. Whatever it is, I want HR to be happy with herself rather than being focused on living only for her husband and children, especially if WS is only a means to an end rather than an end to himself. Meaning, I want to see HR love WS and want to be WS' wife and partner, and not just want to be a wife and mother, so WS will do.

 

I think HR does love WS actually, as much as WS loves HR. I think they just need a little space and time to figure out how important they are to each other, and how to actually discuss things that are important to them rather than hinting or deciding not to "bother" the other person with their problems. I don't see WS sharing much of his stresses with HR, for instance, except in the most general terms.

But still, it was the first time…
hearing that someone needs me.”

He doesn't seem to need her in the ways of the heart...Or does he?  She seems to need him in the ways of survival...Or is it something more?   Not just in living but in being NEEDED and wanted for the first time...  Yet without even understanding or fully knowing it for it isn't in FOCUS.  The very words I need you or because it was you, says so much more than what's on the surface.  What may seem to have started over a common agreement about a marriage without the ingredient called LOVE.  May through time not only show but prove that needing is only a starting place.   That the greatest kind of NEED there can be is that which grows from I need you to I want you.  To I love you and even I miss you.

  All of which makes life worth living... :heart:usafarmgirl

OMG! I laughed so much when SH met JH's family. I was laughing out loud. When they made the growling noise for the father and the puppy sound for the dog, was just too much--when JH kicked SH behind his knees to make him get in the kneeling position in front of her father.....oh, I couldn't stop laughing.  What I'm liking about the acting of our leads is it seems so natural and real. Their timing is perfect. 

 

I felt sorry for WS. He couldn't wait to see how excited his girlfriend would be to see the sofa he purchased for her. Only for her to jump to conclusions and think he was going to propose. She gets angry at him when it's not his fault. Instead of her throwing off hints about marriage by using a sofa that led to confusion, she should have been speaking plainly for him to understand.

this drama is good and bad for me... good because its very funny and relaxing; bad because I waited the sub, I took day off today because of lack of sleep. 

Now back to drama since I watched episode 4 already... if we asked for love, we normally see tears and pain, but here is different, for SJ no means yes. Its a go signal to push the marriage... see how he suggested first to meet her parents and did some preparation to win the “ FUTURE IN LAWS”...he thought this is conventional but he actually found his ideal woman without noticing it. While on HJ part she’s been giving him good points too. When they rode the train.. though he didn’t do sweet gestures like the normal couples, he thinks about her welfare first before searching for another seat after HJ was seated. Plus he took it seriously to dressed well to meet her parents. The other events in last night episode were true and relatable to us as viewers.. living together with your bf/ gf sometimes made us dreamed of building a family and to get old with him/her. As well as the norms of how is it like to be as an ordinary employee... you always answer to your superior and you have to do your might to deliver the goods. Lastly, Thumbs ups to you writer nim and to prod. staff too; of course to all the actors/actresses  as well. Thank you for giving us this funny but realistic drama of life. 

Good day everyone!

This drama... it's very insanely nice. Just the right amount of everything: depth of the story and feeding the viewers of reality happening around us. This drama touches every bit of reality happening around us. When we try to be normal, it seems frustrating and tiring (Won Seok - Ho Rang), when we try to focus on achieving something yet we don't know if we're really near it (Soo Ji) and when we are practical yet the society and we, ourselves feel this is unusual than the norm (Se Hee and Ji Ho). I like all what's happening. Good job to the writer of this drama. It is light yet it makes us all look back to our own realities and see where we are right now. It is very easy to watch, you just get frustrated after each episode when realizations are flooding in your head and agree what the drama writer wanted you to think haha. At almost every ending of the drama, there are always lines that remind us what real life is. This life is really our first.
