How is everyone fairing? I feel lost :(

Need a new addiction stat!

 

Not ready to move on completely, but I suppose I need to tend to the business of my own life.  Feeling sad that this thread is slowing down.  Tried to rewatch from episode 1 last night and it was a little hard. Having been used to the brighter newer episodes, episode 1 felt very bleak with everything taking place at night and the many shots of the subway tunnels only adding to the depressed state of things.  Can't stop being in awe of the director for thinking of these little mood-enhancing details.  Noticed that ever since the ladybug incident, Dong Hoon repeatedly glanced Ji An's way, even as he got out of the subway, he turned her direction multiple times.  He was intrigued right from the start.

 

I can't wait to get to the good part.  It will be a slow re-watch for sure.

 

Another instagram post from what a production member?

I feel so greatful for this thread. I go to this thread every time I miss the drama and it REALLY cheers me up. If it hadn't been for this amazing thread I would just stare at their pics, rewatch the clips on youtube and start to feel melancholic to no end lol. I also got a better understanding of many scenes thank to you guys!

Don't feel like watching any new dramas atm too ;_;

I can't agree more! Yes, that was just so, so obvious, I don't understand how the Korean audience could have viewed it in any other way. That whole voiceover was just so tender and intimate, there was just so much 여운 (lingering feeling in their voices). But I suppose the heart finds what it wants to find.

 


Correcto! But it wasn't just that it was tender and intimate, he has never spoken to her this way, if you recall. 

 

It was always quite I dunno.. matter-of-factly, or pity-party kinda talk. He has never ever asked her about her feelings. This was the first time. But certainly not the last :)

The subtlety of the love line I was ok with because if anything the show didn't budge on their tone. Although, I admit that at one point I was frustrated by the lack of clear delineation of DH's feelings. I initially hated episode 15, my real time reactions  from that episode were not favorable.  However, I rewatched episode 15 again and those scenes with Jian were a confession from DH. May I also add that episode 15 was also a hallmark that the love triangle was clearly brought up the surface with YH-DH-Jian sharing the same screen together. JYD is right when he said, you people surely have interesting lives (effin jerk:lol:). Again, not our typical k-drama love triangle where both women fighting over the affection of a man, with wrist grabbing etc.. But it was clearly indicated that YH and Jian respected each other in some ways and were trying to figure out their feelings and their next decisions. 

 

Upon re-watching last night, I just realised the awkwardness of the encounter in front of the police station. 

 

DH: YH, meet JA. JA, meet my wife. Oh, nevermind. 

 

The trio have shared the screen together before, right before the phone booth reveal. But of course, DH & YH didn't notice JA lurking in the distance.

@Joseph Lim said:  "No Sleepless rainy night song have nothing to do with My Mister:tongue: The only relation is that the singer is our very talented actress Lee Jieun / singer IU. I was just informing mujay that there is an official video of the song she is posting that's all. "

 

Did not know people rapped in 1992.  As to the singer...doesn't look or act any thing like Lee Ji-an!  Bring back  our Lee Ji-an,...Lee Ji-eun!  That is one confusing set of names!  Feel like dealing with double personality (multiple personality disorder)! !!

Actually IU is a Girl Group consisting of Cindy, Hae-Soo and Lee Ji-An:o J/K.

Not sure which of her MVs best represent Ji-An persona. May this?

Or this?

1 more point to add before I zonk out, or head to fan fic land :tongue:

 

Some believe that the VO (is that what it's called?) at the end, where DH asked JA if she's found some comfort in her life is a telepathic chat... a fantasy element. 

 

The concept of telepathy was never introduced throughout the show. 

 

However, episode 15 & 16 introduced a new concept to viewers twice. "Tell, don't show". 

First VO (in the past): Revealed a conversation JA had with DH, regarding GI. We were never shown this scene [we first hear of this conversation in epi 15, via flashback of the three kids] 

Second VO (in the future): DH asking JA if she's found comfort, etc. We were also never shown this scene. 

Both VOs relate to JA. One closes her old chapter, the other opens a new one.

Yes! Good insight about the two VO.

 

Since the first time I heard the VO at the ending, I thought it was the present and the future overlapping. This is why I'm convinced they are together, happy! :D

Me too. I have zero doubt they end up together. My advice for those who keep having doubts is to just go with your gut, or what you felt upon your first watch. Mind you, there are nasty subtitlists out there... hehe. G'night!

One thing seldom mentioned is how deeply Jian was emotionally connected to DH through the phone bug.  She was like a pocket lover with him intimately sharing every moment of his day and night if she so desired.  She could listen to him brushing his teeth, undressing for bed, sighing, yawning, sleeping, or waking up in the morning.  This level of intimacy put her on an emotional plain DH could just not feel.  JA’s emotions were focused on DH exclusively while much of DH’s emotions were based upon a reaction to his personal loneliness.

The drama casually stepped over the deep emotional angst JA must have felt when she moved to Busan and was totally cut off from him.  No listening, no phone calls.  Only those of us who have suffered great loss can understand the hollow of her pain.  Still she managed to persevere and overcome it all.

I’m posting this link to a song that my daughter wrote as a tribute to Jian’s hopefulness that overrode despair during the long dark night of her soul as she slowly healed from the loss of her connection to DH.  Whether her wish came true we will never know.  It’s a safe YouTube video and I’ll just pretend it’s a FanTrack OST. 

If anyone likes it and wants to translate the lyrics to Korean that would be great.

 

@oregonahjussi and @mujay expressed similar sentiments about Ji An and her lonely days in Busan as she learns to let go of Park Dong Hoon and to start her own life as a fully functioning adult in society.  Not only is she intimately familiar with his voice, breathing, footsteps, etc., but after the hug she also has his scent in her memory that she will also have to let go.  Just thinking about it makes me teary all over.  Thank you @tiger457_stv for showing us how despite all that she emerges stronger than ever.

Omg, can't believe you have gone to the trouble of recording this video for me. You are a sweetheart! :wub::wub: Thanks so much. 

I have also stumbled upon the sub done by kind V from dramamilk, [thanks to noor's pestering haha, so partly the thanks goes to her too]

Don't know if it has been posted before:

'

DH – My Kid and my Kids mom want to stay there until he goes to college.
Friend/Colleague – (no subject) spoke some English before?
DH – We sent him for English. Recently he is giving me a hard time because I can’t speak English. Pronunciations….ah. It’s different than our times.
Friend/Colleague – In English, if you can convey your meaning….haha
DH – Hey, can we do that? (Or we can’t even do that.)

That is a topic on DC as well because the phrasing they chose (and that is commonly used in Korea) makes it unclear.

Unfortunately, I don’t know how to fix the translations on other sites. I hope this helps though 

'
So we can assume that DF has totally misinterpreted this important scene. He isn't even talking about yoon hee here. It's just their kid. I had a heart attack watching the scene for the first time thinking whether I totally got it wrong lol. Because before the time jump we see how he finally broke down and let out the tears. And him crying is a  big deal like his mother said. I can totally see that the shadow of past has left him and he's finally a new person, a reborn person, and same goes for Ji An. Who still looks at him the same way but has her own persona, not the pitiful ji an who would hide from people because she has so much history. I hope ji an would get to know that dong hoon is finally ready to reciprocate her feelings now, which he couldn't do last time.

I was going through Sotong_Q's quote thread for My Ahjussi... and I felt that these two quotes describe the last scene for DH. When DH took the initiative to shake (hold?) JA's hand, didn't he finally let his heart fly away? I don't think these details from prior episodes were accidental...

And I absolutely agree. There is no way they can end up with anyone else. That to me is one of the most obvious reasons why they will eventually end up together, however long it takes.

 

They will eventually end up together, though it may take more than a few years and a few relationships with other people before they finally realize it's all futile.  It reminds me a little of Gone With the Wind and how many men before Scarlett finally became Rhett's.

It makes me wonder how many lines they cut out? I think there was a line in the preview for 13/14 that wasn't shown eventually either. I really want to read this damn script! Or hopefully the director's cut will have more of these edited scenes!

 

Wasn't there a line in one of the long teasers before the premiere of Dong Hoon chiding Ji An, telling her to not bottle it up, to curse if she feels like cursing, etc.?  Does anyone remember?

Looking at the last scene and just remembering every glance LSK did can't help but be reminded of Keira Knightley's quote: "I don't think that you can fake warmth. You can fake lust, jealousy, anger; those are all quite easy. But actual, genuine warmth? I don't think you can fake it." And it kinda brings smile to my face 'cos LSK definitely managed to convey warmth and so much it feels unbelievable. Like the way he looks at JA in those behind the scenes photos from the last episode. Even the sentence he speaks "JiAn did you find your comfortable place?" idk it just fills me with so much love and warmth it's mindblowing

I really really hope he will win lots of awards this year and who knows maybe MA will get an international recognition as well like "Mother" did it. I'm also waiting to see if we get foreign adaptations as well, now that will be a great thing

 

@anipanch, never mind adaptations.  They all should just sub this original masterpiece and play it everywhere.  And yes, I desperately hope they win some international awards.  I am trying to get some friends and family members to watch this, but at the same time I wonder if they can get past the first two very bleak episodes.

ugh don't even remind me. I've been trying to convince my sister to watch it. No success yet :( and all of my friends around me who watch dramas are busy with some year-end projects and exams, leaving me alone to experience the excellence called "My mister"

I started rewatching, one episode a day.

 

I had forgotten how downright unpleasant Ji An is in the first few episodes. A nasty piece of work, she is.

Chingu, is this from the official TVN website translation? Where do you get your streaming? The reason I am asking is because once the official Blu Ray/DVD will come out I want to know which one to buy and spend money on. Pfft:angry: what a major difference and really an awful subtitles done by Dramafever. 

 

I agree with you the trio JA-DH-YH shared a screen before from earlier episode when the first phone booth was found by DH.

How many versions of DVD/Blu Ray are there?  We should all flood DF comments section and complain about the inaccuracies.  I am still disappointed that Viki was not able to get he licence.  Reading new timed comments on Viki is one of the reasons I rewatch my favorite dramas multiple times.

This was aired on tvN channel, on a Malaysian IPTV service.
