Didn't anyone notice that JH kept mentioning 2 years as if it was a marriage limited in time?

 

Sorry to cut your post.

From the preview of EP4 in the official webpage by Google translate, it did mentioned they have the "2-year marriage process".

GIRL TALK : SUMMARY

 

JH is crazy / alternately the nicest person

SJ has bad personality ( friendly tone not badmouthing )

HR dissatisfied with her bf . Worried about her going-to-expire-womb ?

Harvard University and Seoul National University have a special reverence . Always spoken of in awe. ( Love Story In Harvard anyone ?  ) Harvard is consistently ranked number 1.

GOSH...... THIS FATHER NEEDS ANGER MANAGEMENT .

BUT IN HIS WAY HE CARES FOR HER AS LONG AS SHE OBEYS HIM. IT"S TOUCHING HE BROUGHT FOOD FOR HER..... ONLY TO FLY INTO A TEMPER.

 

On a lighter note , surely all PDs must have heard how fans talk bout flipping tables so here's a lessonson how to... A well flipped with food flying like snowflakes

 

Fantasy fact...... how we always whine and gripe about flipping tables when....

 

#tragic ending ( Korean fascination with cancer, leukemia, brain tumour, etc... )

#open ending  ( sloppy writing or cowardly way to contain angry fans )

# not enough fan service

@tianaa @YourHighness . after watching the 4th episode I alter my impression of SH being disappointed at the ending of episode 3 after he got JH's answer that she does not like him. That ending scene with the camera panning away was misleading because in the next episode we see that there was no reaction at all after he heard her answer. I agree that somehow he felt relief that he will be in a situation where there will be no attachments other than their usual landlord and tenant relationship. 

 

it's ironic that both believed everything will be the same or will be under control once they proceeded with their plans of getting married. it will be interesting to see how they will realize that marriage is not only about 2 consenting parties but everyone closest in their lives will be [affected] involved as well by the marriage. :D I think SH will change..for the better with JH around.

I didn't like that JS and HR called JH crazy because it sounds so negative. I rather see her as really brave and determined in her pursuit to achieve her dream. Unlike her two friends, JH is proactive. That's exactly why they are describing her as crazy in the end. That way, they won't appear so weak compared to her. JH had it definitely more tough than JS and HR.

JS and HR have something in common. The former wants to become a CEO, yet she accepts to be just an employee who is used and even abused by her superiors and her male colleagues. The 4 episodes proved us that JS has the brain, the energy and the connections to become a CEO. She accepts to be treated like an object (their gazes are like lasers who are unclothing her), her only revenge or in order to relieve her stress, she treats men as objects as well hence she doesn't remember MSG. HR is similar: her dream is to get married but she waits for SW's move. She has already painted her marriage and future: a big house and children. If you look at her dream, you realise that she is depending on the man. He has to earn the money moreover she is not the one who proposes to the man. We shouldn't forget that here again there is a significant contrast with JH:

- our protagonist quits her job, as she could no longer accept the mistreatment. JS never complains and accepts everything

- JH even proposes to SH - not HR

Besides, I would like to give another reason why JS got mad at HR. Since JS worked in an environment hostile to women (they treat single women as objects and inferiors), she is well aware how lucky HR is with SW. The latter treats HR and women in general with such a respect. He paid for JS's help. He picks her up, he does anything to make HR happy. He even apologises, when he doesn't need to. HR has no clue, how lucky she is with SW, hence I said earlier that she doesn't perceive SW's true value. That's the other big reason why JS got furious. This made me realise that SW could actually be the trigger JS needs in order to become a CEO. SW is actually looking for investors and we all know that JS is working in that field. She has the connection and everything else (strength and skills) in order to make it happen. It would be great, if SW and JS worked together. 

As conclusion, JH and SH are similar. Both are not passive, they are proactive in their pursuit of their dream. The landlord wanted to be free from his parents, JH wanted to become a writer. Both never accepted their father's decision.

@bebebisous33 reading your analysis of the three girls above.. i realized that JH sometimes looks indecisive in some scenes but when she reached a certain limit she will be firm in her decision and go ahead whatever it takes.. whatever the downside of her decisions,  like when she quit her job..it's a tough decision but because she thought self preservation... or valuing herself more is important she never regretted it. Regarding her marriage...i believe it was not a spur of the moment thing for her. It has always been at the back of her mind and unconsciously she weighs the pros and cons without really realizing them. That's why when she heard she was needed she was touched and contemplated on it for a while. And when she was presented by the opportunity... she took it and courageously asked.

That's why when she heard she was needed she was touched and contemplated on it for a while. And when she was presented by the opportunity... she took it and courageously asked.

I wouldn't describe her as indecisive, rather as compliant. She was raised that way. Her father was so commanding that she never dared to defy him. She has learnt to live that way. Therefore when people around her use their power in order to impose their will, she will concede to it but like you said, to a certain extent. Deep down, she has set boundaries that she can be used but NOT ABUSED! That's why she left the flat to her brother. She knew, they would abuse the situation. 

Notice that she didn't confront her father, she just ran away from him, when she wanted to make her dream come true. She acted behind his back, just like her mother. Besides, during the dinner, you could notice the influence of JH's mother over the husband. She didn't move at all and asked her husband to sit down. So she is compliant but she still has some influence over him. (But not enough in my opinion).

But you are right: it is self-preservation in the end. On the other hand, JS doesn't show her dissatisfaction in front of the others, whereas HR does the exact opposite. She literally screams and cries, when she is unhappy. HR will blame her boyfriend, while JS will blame the circumstances, although they are partially responsible for their situation, since both never really expressed themselves, although they had the opportunity. JH never had the chance to express herself in her family. Only with 20, she could make a wish for the first time. HR could have been more explicit in her wish, JS could also complain about the harassment but she doesn't. As you can conclude, JH's friends are more extrem in their reactions.

Hmm... a programmer (or close to it) needs a housemate that is able to do the housework and chores, is stoic, very meticulous about finance down to the penny, and is pressured to get married by parents? The girl, almost a decade younger, has family problems so she can't live at home, has job problems so she can't afford rent, and so willingly goes into a sham marriage with the former?

 

The minute details may be different, but the overall premise sounds A LOT like Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu (aka Full Time Wife Escapist). Considering that was my favourite drama of 2016, that's actually high praise. I highly doubt Because this is My First Life will be as good (especially when 20th Century Children is frigging awesome and it's airing at the same time) but it's certainly now in my watch list because of it.

GIRL FALLOUT.....!! ( AS BEFITTING A CHICK LIT )

 

It's so exhaustive to follow HR preoccupation with her aging womb , her fallopian  tube , which of course is a doublespeak for desiring marriage and motherhood. To her womb has a life of it's own , with a lifespan of 30 years old., a do or die situation. Her's is a case of social conditioning whereby a proposal followed by marriage is the be all .

Her outburst of disappointment is inconsolable. She even alienated her friends.

 

SJ has more the modern liberated woman's outlook ..... she smokes, have protected sex , is single and successful , caring to JH ,is her own woman and that marriage is nothing. Though I'm wondering if she's  having an affair ? Or is moving into a corner of being forced into " pleasing " her big client to score sales ? Even if she's not she may come to point when her ambition be a driving force..Please help me understand the scene in spoilers. 

 

JH is at this point is confronting  her own dilemma and what she needs over the conventions and expectations of marriage, But I think her's has the star smiling more on her as the future unfolds because NSH has the most potential to turn 360 degrees into a man hit by love, companionship and fulfillment and that will give the show that wonderful feel good feeling . A belief in the basic higher value of falling in love, of love ,of being joined in one with the one you love. They come with embraces, hugs and hand holding. Me old fashion..... hahaha.

 

The three friends' choices will definitely impact their lives. I'm interested to know how they progress with their diverse views on relationships . Will their friendship hold or be torn asunder ?

See his frowns deepening....three times with a shocker at the end. It's hard work.. WIN OVER YOUR FATHER -IN-LAW'S FAVOUR ?? Haha ..... he's not getting it not the way his mind works. It's not formulaic for him to comprehend. So funny...... wrong answer . He said No, I'll stop this from happening no matter what.

He's so sincere and straight.

This is a gem of a scene. IT tickles.

In this post, I would like to comment more on the other couples. Actually, I can understand SW's reaction. Sure, he has his flaws: he seems to be too idealistic and less pragmatic. To me, he is waiting for a marriage because he is not financially stable. We see that he is actively looking for investors so he is not lazy. But if we look at HR's reaction, she has this picture in her head: She gets married and they move to a bigger house. So she has definitely associated marriage to moving up the social ladders which SW can not give her right now. So why should he propose? Has she ever asked him, why he never proposed to her in the 7 years ? Either he hasn't thought about it or he is waiting for the right moment: he is successful in his work. Honestly I am opting more for the second option.

 

 @bebebisous33 Yes thanks for  analyzing the two other couples relationship. I'm more interested with HR and SW.  I definitely agree this early that HR seems to equate marrying SW means getting into social ladder. SW. Compared to her job  (not sure what but 'manager'/ chief of all the waitress of fine dining resto) SW inner circle seems to have more of social class.  SW boss or colleague from work is is friend of MSG  (HR the one who recommended the of the rental place of SH).  But I want to know is SW younger than HR? because  it seems to feel that way. SW looks devoted to her but.. the scene where she mentioned the furniture.. he  didn't pick up the hint of HR  which made her tomped off leaving him clueless as to what happened to her.

 

I hope to see scene with SH SW, and SG... these three men have vastly different personalites. SH out of all the three seems to be one who will take risk (he calculates every decision, move  and how it will be beneficial  to his plan. SW is like young man who as mentioned, strives to achieve a goal and works hard to  get to that goal.  SG, he's not a CEO if he doesn't have mind for it but..  he's more like the  funny man in this drama- depsite of being CEO of the  of the start up company. Like I said SH acts more like the the boss and SG is like his minion or right hand man. Not sure how to phrase it.

 

 About to watch EP4 with sub. I'm anticipating already.  Thoughts when I'm done.

@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. :)

 

 

I agree with you. I hope they just start to like each other maybe after  10 episodes. I want to see them struggling with their feelings and slow liking each other. I wonder who the writer will present this to us.  I feel that SH can show  affection through physical contact.; a squeeze of  her hand to say it's okay,  a pat on the back for doing a good job.. but these gestures will turn slowly into something like touch of her cheeks if and when he'll see her cry, a hug to comfort her.. oh I'm thinking scenarios in my head. He he.

 

But chingu, I'm worried about SH mother.  Will she accept YJH daughter in law?  I don't feel the mother  will warm up to her.

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

 

20 hours ago, jongski said:

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.

Thanks for the correction. Got excited forgot the "without' while quoting the English sub.

 

So JH is technically a bed spacer, right?  She's not paying for the house she's paying for the room?  I think it's more cheaper that way.

Annyeong, @stroppyse, @jongski and @b4l01! :D So lovely to see you here and thanks for the welcome wishes.

 

I really want to write down what I think but RL is keeping me a bit occupied but also for me it's really difficult to summarize how I feel about this drama. I love it so much - even more now it's 4 episodes in and it has established the whole premise, even though it was done a lot better and far more interesting than in other dramas.

 

I thought the whole scene between Ji-ho, her family and Se-hee was hilarious and at the same time so complex. It's such a contrast to when Ji-ho's rotten brother - sorry but he is a rotten piece of brother -  decided to impregnate a girl, to marry and to move in with her. Which was accepted - or was it actually? - by their father while mom is sitting and saying nothing or only making meaningful faces - I know why I loved her the most in Answer Me 1988. 

 

But with Ji-ho it's like the father has different standards. Either because he actually cares more about his daughter than I thought or he really does set different standards for his daughter aka women. I mean if I had a son and he wouldn't have a job - like mom pointed out ("Weren't you supposed to look for a job?") - but instead have a girlfriend for a short time and impregnate her I would slap the heck out of him with my moral standards. 

 

But at the same time it was really hilarious scene with the sound effects of dad being a grumpy dog and Se-hee the scared cat. ROFL Usually it's the other way around, people are scared by Se-hee. :D Although I thought mom was a lot scarier, just sitting there eating while probably having a lot of thoughts and feelings to voice out. And can we talk about rotten brother who is like "are you pregnant?". Boy, you're the last person to be moral.

 

On another note I found the scene between Ji-ho and Su-ji in the 3rd episode very interesting when Su-ji is eating her snacks and Ji-ho is constantly picking up the crumbs. She is really made for Se-hee aka he is right she is - if not with everything - just like him. :) 

 

On an important note I love how this drama breaks with the taboo of addressing sexual assault and gaslighting - which happens unfortunately frequently, not only in South Korea but as we know everywhere in the world (see Weinstein incident) - and lets Ji-ho say her opinion, also addressing how women - in her case writer-nim - don't even help other women in this situation either. Good stuff, good stuff!

and ha rang -- that woman annoyed me. no one, whether it is a man or woman, is a mind reader. if she wanted to move on to the next stage and feels they should be progressing in that direction, then she needs to have a conversation with won seok. how is he expected to know magically what she is thinking? and why is he expected to apologize for everything? and she is so self-centered that she doesn't know what her friends are going through because it is always about her life. hmph.

a weird thought that came into my head -- not at all romantic -- but ji ho is lucky that see hee is a nice guy. hahahah.. so when she said that she was so moved when he said he needed her, all I could think was "hmmm, aren't you lucky that see hee is not a serial killer psycho then????" hahahah....

 

on the plus side, am glad that the drama mostly focuses on the main lead because the two of them together are quite lovely to watch.

HAEBIN (GUGUDAN) – EVERYDAY (BECAUSE THIS IS MY FIRST LIFE OST)


I’m in love
The moment I fell for you
Show your love
It’s so strange, I don’t feel like myself

 

When we’re alone
I start to smile
Sometimes, when I awkwardly avoid your eyes
That means I

 

You’re my everything
Open my closed heart
Loving you
Come closer to me
Hold me more warmly
Until always
I want to be a special person
I want to tell you, if you’re waiting
I’m in love with you
Everyday

 

I’m thinking of you again today
Not able to sleep all night
Then I got curious
I wonder how you feel

 

I was thinking what to tell you first
Then I just said things I didn’t even mean
That means I

 

You’re my everything
Open my closed heart
Loving you
Come closer to me
Hold me more warmly
Until always
I want to be a special person
I want to tell you, if you’re waiting
I’m in love with you
Everyday

 

Only you are in my head
I can’t do anything
That’s how much I think of you


You’re my everything
Stay by my side every day
Fall in love with me
Would you be my one love
Look at me, until always
I want to be a special person
I want to tell you, if you’re waiting
I’m in love with you
Everyday

I understand why you see it that way. But nonetheless, her mother was unable to create a room where JH could express herself hence I can not accept that she has such a power over her husband. The mother accepted that only her son's birthday was celebrated with candles. Her daughter had to run away from home in order to achieve her dream. JH has always felt neglected and as such her mother is responsible for that. She criticizes her son in front of JH but her critic has no effect, since the son got a woman pregnant, received the flat and has no real job. 

On the other hand, your observation about how JS and HR perceive men was an eye-opener. Both have a negative attitude towards them: they are objects or tools. In the end they are so passive, when it comes to men. You're right that JS could set boundaries but she doesn't, then resents men for her situation. Striking is that JS didn't notice that MSG did help her a little to get rid of the harassing manager. Sure, it wasn't that obvious but that is the kind of the thing that JH would have noticed. She noticed with a simple gesture SH's kindness. 

I was really bothered by HR's behaviour: immature, materialistic and self-centered. I hope, she finds someone else first (rich aso) and her new boyfriend treats her like an object. I would like her to regret her spontaneus decision. She has to realise that she totally overlooked the love SW had for her. They loved each other, yet she totally underestimated it because of her dream: marriage and have a bigger house.

While SH comes as a little off (emotionless and detached), SH seems to be the best man from all the three because he is a good observant. Then he is a good listener and doesn't get upset so easily. Through his rational thoughts, he is able to communicate to his partner properly so that they don't have conflicts, while the other two men have issues with communication and listening. JH and SH are created to underline the contrast to the other couples. There might be no obvious feelings but they are attentive to each other. There was no real difference between the couple in the subway and JH/SH. SH also gave her the seat, when one was free, but he left her to go to another seat,

I concur.  Before I read your post I was thinking that I love the fact that JH and SH talk to each other.  SH can ask JH any question and she answers it honestly and vice versa.  I love that they have open communications and; therefore, avoid misunderstandings.  Perhaps it is because they are not in love, they do not feel that they must hide their feelings from each other.   As you stated , they are attentive to each other's needs, it is, how can I explain this, natural, it is without thought.  SH needs water, he does not have to ask, she gets it for him.  If SH senses JH's distress, he offers comfort without being burdensome.   This drama is so refreshing.

Spoiler

 

In this post, I would like to comment more on the other couples. Actually, I can understand SW's reaction. Sure, he has his flaws: he seems to be too idealistic and less pragmatic. To me, he is waiting for a marriage because he is not financially stable. We see that he is actively looking for investors so he is not lazy. But if we look at HR's reaction, she has this picture in her head: She gets married and they move to a bigger house. So she has definitely associated marriage to moving up the social ladders which SW can not give her right now. So why should he propose? Has she ever asked him, why he never proposed to her in the 7 years ? Either he hasn't thought about it or he is waiting for the right moment: he is successful in his work. Honestly I am opting more for the second option.

Moreover, HR never talked directly to SW about marriage, she implied it with the couch but HR shouldn't have behaved like that. To me,  HR is way too emotional and selfish. Notice that in her anger on the rooftop, she only talked about herself: her body, her womb, aso. It was never about SW and his dream, his feelings aso. Sure, I can understand her disappointment but let's be honest: the way she talked about her future marriage, she really wanted to boast in front of the coworkers. She likes to be admired because deep down, she is unsatisfied. To me, she doesn't see SW's qualities. Even if he hasn't got a good job, he is so caring. He picks her up, when she finishes late. He will do anything to fulfill any wish from her. Yes, HR needs to realise SW's true value. She should stop focusing on marriage as a goal... because by thinking so, she could marry anyone in the end, as long as the partner gives her what she has been looking for: a big house where she can have children. With other words, love doesn't seem to be so relevant to her, if she keeps thinking like that.

 

 

 

yeah I noticed that too!! it's like she's telling Se Hee before hand that she'll only be his wife for 2 years then their contract will end but we know it won't!! :D 

 

I agree with you!! she keeps getting mad on her own and wait for him to ask for her forgiveness which I don't like!! she took him for granted enough that she no longer see his good traits and keep asking or actually wanting for more and get mad if he doesn't do what she wants from him without telling him directly!! she has the right to want to get married but being mad that he didn't understand that when she never said it is totally wrong plus he kept telling her over and over again that rich people can afford to buy all they want and get married and she knows he's looking for investors so he doesn't have enough money to get married so why get mad when she already knows his dinantial situation?!! he even brought the saufa she kept obsessing over thinking she'll be happy but instead of seeing his gesture she kept yelling at him in front of her friends!! she needs to give as much as he's giving her which she's not at this point and learn to talk directly instead of wanting him to understand what she wants on his own!!

As for the other couple: MSG is just so full of himself. He thinks as womanizer that he can impress women. When he helped JS, he thought, she would be grateful and jump onto him. Yet JS saw right through him and kept her distance from him. This man also thinks that he is superior to SW and SH, when it comes to women and marriage. In my opinion, he will be the last one to get his girl. He needs to learn a lot.

 

hhhhhhhh I'm enjoying him losing his mind being ignored by her!! :lol:

While SH comes as a little off (emotionless and detached), SH seems to be the best man from all the three because he is a good observant. Then he is a good listener and doesn't get upset so easily. Through his rational thoughts, he is able to communicate to his partner properly so that they don't have conflicts, while the other two men have issues with communication and listening. JH and SH are created to underline the contrast to the other couples. There might be no obvious feelings but they are attentive to each other. There was no real difference between the couple in the subway and JH/SH. SH also gave her the seat, when one was free, but he left her to go to another seat, while the man remained by his girlfriend's side. However, he revealed his caring side again. Then we can also observe that he is not greedy as he was able to reduce the rent. It is clear that he needs the money to pay the loan... so their arrangement look like a married couple, where the wife needs to work in order to pay the house. 

 

I'm sooooooooooooo loving this man that I'm wondering about my sanity!! :lol: he's emotionless at the surface but he's the most caring and supportive person Ji Ho ever had!! in a wierd way his logican/nonsense/crazy way of thinking comes out as the most caring, comforting and encouraging words and gesture that helps her at the most needed time!! and I love how she's just as unusual person like he is to be able to communicate with him and have that understanding!! sooooooo love it!! :wub: 

 

 

hhhhhhhhh good reason to be home!! :lol: 

 

Just some reasons why I have to be home

@sakura2016 I bet, SH's female coworker who had bet that SH was heterosexual was interested in him. I am sure, she liked him. He was the only one who paid attention to her dresses and her appearances. He wasn't disgusted by her dirty outfit after working so many hours for the deadline. So she will be the only one who is upset about the marriage as she didn't see that coming. Moreover, he would ask her for advices, hence she thought, she had good chances to win his heart.
