[Drama 2017] Because This Is My First Life 이번 생은 처음이라

Recommended Posts

Meeting the FIL in EP 4 was hilarious. TOTALLY. I laughed so hard! But it didn't end just there, SH's reaction on the night and morning after was funny too. He was so traumatised!

 

This drama is good not just for the dialogues but also in the quiet moments when there are no dialogues. I think the subway scene between SH and JH as they make their way home from the train station shows the contrast between SH (the pragmatic and cynical) and JH (the idealist and romantic-at-heart). It may foreshadow JH's heartbreak later. It is obvious that marrying without emotional attachment is her temporary option. She is, after all, a woman who yearns affection from the man she loves. What will happen when she reaches the point where she wants more from SH? I can't wait to find out!

I m loving this show officially.. After the 4th episode.. It's a right balance of humor n emotions.. NS meeting JH's parents was soo hilarious due to the background sounds n NS's blank expressions lol.. The intro of JH's craziness.. The way she ran away to pursue her dream.. N Now marriage.. JH had a pang in her heart to marry without love but then seeing the circumstances of her friends she changed her opinion.. All marriages r not for love some r for needs.. I m soo excited for their marriage more than them.. I like the convo of NS n JH.. Even though, NS talks strange JH could relate to him that what is needed for a relationship:wub:

SJ the stronger she appears, the harder is her pain to deal.-_-. She is always harassed by her superior but still tries to put a brave front for her friends.. Her dream was something else, she is doing something else.. Yet she is very coolB).. SG thinks he knows everything abt females but he fails in the case of SJ.. I want to see more of them.. 

I knew the third couple wud crumple down soon n it happened.. But they still love each other.. Wondering how they will reconcile.. :ph34r:

P. S. Congo the show is increasing in ratings day by day.. Hope it has more ratings in future episodes too

 Yes I can't wait what will happen when she wants kiss, hug and event more :D I am sure she will give the action first... and JH will actually feel the affection and desire :D I almost sure (I hope so) the writer will give us kisses and bed scene.

I love the female friendship in this drama.

 

As much as I am enjoying this drama, I know that I am enjoying it because I anticipate SeHee changing. 

 

If this drama was a potential lover I'd run away because the rule is, never date anyone assuming they will change from who they show you to be into a prince charming.

I loved episode 3. Still have to watch episode 4 but I will only get to watch it tomorrow with subtitles. I don't want to assume or read anything wrong and get scolded for skewing information and posting untruth.

 

I am really warming upto the main leads. How weird that the show that I had the least expectancy from is my most liked while the show I did have great expectations from is not that interesting to me. Also, I can't believe they are actually getting married so soon. For some reason, I expected them to live as roommates and fiance for some more episodes.

 

BTW, @packmule3 I am watching this show. :D Also, @vangsweetie637 and @kaoriharang can you guys join me? I know you both are watching this show. @mslee Yes, that was clear disappointment. LOL.

 

I am really loving how the writer is handling rape culture and how females are treated in a long term relationship or even the workplace where the female is competent and powerful with a no nonsense personality. I can't tell you guys how disgusted and upset I was with JH's team trying to pressure and shame her into letting go of her sexual assault. I am glad she stood up for herself. Like the saying goes, speak the truth, even if you are alone and your voice shakes. Bravo to our girl. I was really proud of her. I am still hoping that somehow this will all work out for her and she won't have to give up her dream of being a writer. It would be very unfair if she ends up loosing her career when that sleezebag goes on to become a PD.

hello unnie and everyone on this thread - wasnt expecting to be tagged :tongue:

 

Anyways - I have yet to watch Ep 4 as well. But just some quick thoughts, I like this drama  because of the dynamics of the main otp. It is clear that right now between the two there is definitely no love whatsoever. But I think what is happening between the two is that they have found some solace in each other's presence.

 

These two have more similarities than they have differences that is for sure. I personally think for them that fact that they have found that and recognise that - which has lead to a connection between the two is something that is rather unique and real difference; compared to the typical kdrama love story.

 

I find SH such an interesting character, he comes off as rather 'turn off' in his emotions but yet he is probably more caring that most guys who show emotions. Something that I really love about this story. If anything between the three coupls that get attention in this show - I really am looking forward to SH and JH's love story and journey the most.

 

I am definitely hoping for a deeper character development, clearly each of our characters both as individuals and as couples - have their own pains and struggles as well as a deepening understanding of each other.

 

But so far this drama is definitely one I am following (:

Note: I also agree with you @YourHighness . on how the sexually assault and attempted rape was handled as well. I am so glad JH stood up for herself and made a stand. I was definitely applauding at that moment.

It will be interesting if SH is the one who realises that he wants more. :tongue:

 

PS. I love the meeting the FIL scene and how SH had paid attention and followed JH's instructions to a T. His panicked look and the puppy whimper. LOL.

 Yes! Going by how the writer likes to break stereotypes and surprise viewers with unexpected twists, i wouldn't be surprised if SH suffers more. That would be an interesting watch!

In my opinion, she is used to be used by others hence she feels that behind a nice gesture, they have an hidden agenda. When the staff (writer, director and producer) was meeting her, they had indeed a hidden agenda. She is the one with ideas, they can use her creativity in order to make money, while treating her as inferior. Notice that they never said that they needed her, if they had done that, they would have revealed that she had the upper hand.

...

The reason why JH changed her mind was SH's kindness, when he helped the elderly woman. Due to his action, she gets aware that SH has no hidden agenda and was telling her the truth. 

 

 

Hi.  Yay, you are watching.  I agree.  It's a tough cold Seoul for JH, watching SH helping the lady pick up the oranges was probably the only nice kind gesture JH saw in the last 48hours.  She needed some reasons to stay in Seoul. Hearing and knowing SH needed her (as a person not just anyone so that he can marry to) have already sway her.  Seeing how nice he was probably tipped the scale for her.  She has some proof of his true nature to believe what he is saying.  Honestly, I think watching him reaffirmed for her that there is some goodness and kind people out there despite her having faced some really tough situations earlier that day.

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. 

 

yusefull, I just want to say that I love reading all that you wrote, especially the last sentence.  I've never watched The Graduate (shame on me).  The last few minutes of episode 4, started with JH staring at her beloved The Graduate movie poster (a nod to her love of writing and her impulsive nature - running away to attend Seoul National Uni against her dad's wish like the characters in the movie) to scene of both JH/SH running to catch the bus in their wedding attire was lifted off the ending of The Graduate huh?  JH's wedding dress and her beige french coat resembled Dustin Hoffman and  Anne Bancroft's clothing colors. The look on their faces... what now?  the uncertainty on her face... about the future and what will happen to them now.  All we need was The Sound of Silence playing in the background.

 

Just for those who did not know about the scene like me :D

Spoiler

 

I agree, JH feels the weight and sadness of reality, her own state, her friends' problems... she absorbs it all.  The camera keeps focusing on Jung So-Min's luminous eyes for a reason.  SH helps to diffuse it and make things bearable for her.  Coming back to a quiet home with SH watching futbol on the TV after all the dramas and chaos was what JH needed.  You are right, everyone hides their unhappiness, sadness, disappointments in that episode.  Sad but amazing ending.  Such a contrast to the hilarity half an hour before when SH met her family.  I died laughing in those ten minutes. So funny @sakura2016!

In the graduate, dustin hoffman character stop the wedding and run away with the bride and they take off on a bus. They sit in the back all smiling and look at each other. At this point they realise that they were in the moment and realise they don't know what will happen now. They stop smiling. they stop looking at each other and look in front of them. It's very realistic because in other movie they stop just after they run away and don't show us that they may have screw up.

yeah.. it's a wonderful and so appropriate nod to that movie.  I keep wondering what the significance in her poster until that scene.  hahaha

They do it often. Like I was talking with someone before, I think they use poster often. And I now get what the poster mean.

 

The 2 hands are the ten players (the black on the finger) and the goal keeper (the hands) in a football team. They are together but the goal keeper is a lonely position. The two leads are not alone in this world but they both feel lonely (he even seek it).

 

At the JH family dinner (and at other moment) when for the dad you hear lyon, for SH you hear dog noise (don't remember and must rewatch it but I think you hear them too for her at other moment).

My current favorite drama right now! I'm glad that I have a new one because Age Of Youth 2 was already finished.

 

What I really like about this one is I'm not shipping them so bad. Not in a bad way of course, I want them to be the end game. But I have this habit that when I'm watching Kdrama, I want the main characters to end up together, expect them to have sweet moments and always be on the screen but on this I just let the characters to do their own thing and let myself to expect nothing because the story ALWAYS SURPRISES ME and I really love that. And I'm fine when they're not around because the side characters are equally amazing.

this drama is way to fun to watch. there just so many good scene. i hope the writer will keep this up.

that dinner scene with JH family was fun to watch. good thing JH ask her friend how to kiss up to the parent. it did come in handy when her father get all mad about the news of JH/SE married.

i cant blame SH for choosing i will never let your daiughter hand get wet to JH pa. that one is the least embress out of the 4.

i cant blam JH freind for thinking her bf going to ask her to married him. though she did seem like a woman that get upset easy.

thought that seem of JH friend taking her anger out on her friend was a little out of line.

i cant wait to see how JH will be like when meeting SH parent.

@hushhh, I too can't wait to see SeHee change--especially, realizing that he's falling in love with her. He does things that are very considerate of her. Even him giving her a break on the rent. In his mind, it's all about need money for rent, yet he's giving her a discount on the money he needs. Then he offers her money. He's even considerate of her on the bus. I can't wait for the realization that may be he likes her.

Was thinking, if their company went IPO... the boys will be financially secure, See Hee won’t need a rentee, loan will payoff.  Will he dissolve the marriage?  It will force him to reeval his feelings.

 

WS and SG’s relationships to the other girls may change too I’d think.

The scene at the bus station was priceless. Ji-Ho knew that if she leave Seoul that night,
she could have missed her only chance of a possible relationship with a great guy. At her
age, 30's years old, she must realize that her chance of find a perfect partner is slipping 
away further and further. I think this is why she ran back to confirm Se-Hee previous proposal.
But, when he asked her "do you like me?". Se-Hee expected her to answer "No", but the
audience can feels that he's hoping for a "Yes". Being a gentleman and bind by a fake marriage
contract, he has to keep his end of the bargain so Ji-Ho can share the apartment with him. 
And so far, he did just that. The question now is, who will break the ice first in this 
strange living arangement. But, we have to wait till next week for follow up episodes to find
out. ARRRRRGGGRRRRRRHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! Who the hell invented the calendar?. Do
we need it?. Sometimes I feel like smacking the bastard who invented the calendar upside his
head. ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!
