@tiger457_stv!!!  So glad to have you back.  I've missed your funny posts.

have eyes issues!  can't get on internet for too long.  terrible head ache and eye strain!  But can't help but get on My Ajusshi…. dr order or not!  so a few minutes per day can't hurt! hahaha

 

@justamom wonders what this reader was telling about the restaurant.  at that time back in 2000, I actually tried to believe those people at the restaurant were in fact father-daughters, to give them the benefit of the doubt.  beside it wasn't any of my business.... but those working with me, were very nosy, so I insisted that they were indeed parent-children.   In any case in Korea many working ajummas obviously prefer story about Bab-noona, and such stories because that is their fantasies...as @bernie said.  Life however is different as seen by my example above.... there were a lot of fathers-daughters at the restaurant, but no mother-son!

I fail to understand how pretty noona became a hit it did till the end. Nothing against people who stuck with it till the end, in fact I was more in love with this drama during the initial phase. I watched first 4 episodes multiple times and was in love with both the characters. Things stared going downhill for this drama when they bought mom into picture and gave so much focus on her. 

I couldn’t stand to watch the mom and the way they portrayed song ye Jin as spineless character irked me to no end. 

At the same time my ajhussi started picking up heat and we had one badass of female character in jian and I couldn’t help myself being pulled into this drama. 

It was refreshing to see workplace harassment being discussed in pretty noona and I was eager to know the end result. But the way they handled it baffles me to no end ... I mean what are you trying to convey that we should not report any harassment bc in the end it’s women who might end up suffering ... what was PD smoking  before coming up with such ending. It literally discouraging women who muster up the courage to fight against such harassment in workplace !!!!!

On the other hand I liked the workplace politics shown in my ajhussi ... even PDH who pretty much played deaf to initial problems he faced in office, grew balls in the end to defend jian.

 

I am sorry I just can’t help compare every damn drama out there from this point onwards to my ajhussi.

@t123han  I think everyone who's seen and appreciated MA will always end up using it as a yardstick for other dramas. It was so well-written, well-directed, superbly acted. Overall a brilliantly executed production. :)

 

@mylovelystar That's strange,  because MA was a hit,  wasn't it?

I thought MA was a hit, too.  And certainly very well loved by those who watched.  Seems like many still can't let go of the issues that sparked the controversies in the first place. :(

 

Here's the original Korean article if anyone wants to attempt to read it herself:

I'm not sure if this has already been shared or not but this fan made trailer for Ji An is sooooo cool.

Turn on the subtitles when you watch it.

WOW that stare at 0:59-1:05. The background music, the voiceover - so powerful! 

Im still here lurking in the background! :sweatingbullets:

I guess we’ll never really move on from MA lol. 

 

Yes hopefully the posts you mentioned get translated @justamom. Would love to read them all and its fascinating that the korean audience hasn’t been able to move on yet like us.

Honestly Ji An is such a cool character. I mean she's a natural born spy. The NSA would be lucky to have her.

 

James Bond who? Jason Bourne what? They got nothing on our girl.

 

Watching that fan made trailer just made me crave for a 10k au fic where Ji An is in some sort of law enforcement agency. An up and coming rookie who is talented but unable to make much headway into the closed off boys' club that is the Agency.

 

So she when she gets a particularly difficult case she has no choice but to team up with the even more reticent older agent Park Dong Hoon. A man from whom great things were expected but his safety first approach has stalled his professional life and left his personal life in shambles.

 

Dong Hoon can instantly recognize her natural talent but is baffled (and a little scared) of her reckless nature. But he has no choice other than teaming up with her to solve this case if he wants to keep his job.

 

The more they work together, the more they realize how similar they are. But will they be able to trust each other??

Stay tuned for the next episode of...

(Am I basically writing fanfiction now?? What has this show done to me!?)

Everytime I see this picture, I imagine a spin off where Park Dong Hoon and Lee Ji An take a side job together as amateur detectives, solving petty crimes around Hugye neighborhoods, such as finding missing things, catching a prankster and stuff...

Their methods often clash, because PDH thinks hers are "illegal and unsavory", while LJA thinks his are "lame and unnecessary complicated"....

But, it's highly effective! 

And sometimes Ki Beom helps them with some hacking...

 

Sorry, I just miss them so much...:tears:

@arctichare, did you see @widala's post earlier?  She and you obviously need to team up together to write us this fan-fic.

Yes it was.

 

 

 

The reception section of 

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Mister

put it succinctly:

 

 

 

“The drama was a critical and commercial success, consistently topping the cable television viewership ratings in its timeslot. Its final episode recorded a 7.352% nationwide audience share according to Nielsen paid platform making the episode one of the highest rated in Korean cable television history.[17]My Mister drew a solid average viewership rating of 5% for a cable TV show and topped the Contents Power Index (CPI) rankings,[18] as well as the TV popularity ranking, six times during its nine week run.[19]

 

Spoiler

The drama received critical acclaim for its screenplay and direction. The cast similarly received praise for their performances, which viewers called 'life work' for all of the actors.[20][17]

Airs tonight at 7 in Japan. 

 

@SPTV_hanryu and Mnet Japan’s tweets today:

 

The LSK-IU greetings are just slightly different from each other, and so far we've seen three.  How many of these did they shoot?  And it looks like MNET is releasing something different every week?  Hopefully they have many more up their sleeves.  Anyone knows how the show is doing in Japan?  Which episodes are released this week?

Mnet Japan released 2 vids (7 sec and 12 sec in duration)

 

 

 

 

@SPTV_hanryu released a 15 sec vid

 

 

 

 

 

According to the link given by the above @SPTV_hanryu tweet, the first episode will be broadcast today at 7 PM JST.

 

 

Hence, might be too early for reviews.  SKY PerfecTV! is direct broadcast satellite, the audience will likely be smaller than NHK, TBS, Fuji TV, TV Asahi, Nippon TV.

 

 

Ref https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SKY_PerfecTV!

 

Quote

SKY PerfecTV! (スカパー! Sukapā!) is a direct broadcast satellite (DBS) service that provides satellite television, audio programming, and interactive television services to households in Japan"

 

 

 

Second episode scheduled on 7/14 at 10 PM JST.

I was just realized that Ji An’s house was number 1, I saw it several times on that blue rustic door, so I asked myself why did the director chosen that house, while they were actually filming not inside that house, but they shot the scenes at a knock down room, maybe in some kind of studio, I saw it in one of instagram

pictures shared by the production staff a month ago. So, could it be the director wants to give a hint that Ji An is actually Dong Hoon’s first love after all ? And Dong Hoon is also Ji An’s first love, because all of this time, it was Dong Hoon that crazily searched for her to her house, and opened that number one door.

Yes, I believe the #1 is very deliberate.  Someone pointed this out quite a few pages back.  Remember when Yoon Hee asked him in one of the flashback scenes, "Who is number one to you?" or something like that?  This must be the answer to that question.  If I have time later I'll search for that post.

 

Edited to add: and I firmly believe they did not just choose that house because its house number is 1, I think they put the number there themselves.

So apparently they showed a new IU/LSG PR clip after airing the first episode. I can’t find it anywhere but I did see a screenshot and the text was different from the earlier videos
