Oh Na Ra mention at https://www.soompi.com/2018/07/26/8-celebrity-couples-stood-test-time-without-getting-married/

 

"Celebrity Couples Who Have Stood The Test Of Time (Without Getting Married)

 

 

Oh Na Ra and Kim Do Hoon

This couple has been dating for 18 years! They met through the musical “Empress Myeongseong” in 2000 and have been in a loving relationship in the almost-two-decades since. When asked why they haven’t gotten married, Oh Na Ra said, “We were too busy. While we were working, 18 years flashed by. Our relationship is good even now but other people think that we’re weird.”

I can't believe I watched WWWSK. Down to last episode, yo! Also enjoying Stranger aka Secret Forest. 

 

Not super related to the show, but, has anyone visited My Mister filming sites? I'm heading to Seoul in Sep, just wondering how easy it is to make your way to the locations.

I have two questions for our MA detectives:

 

  1. In this Ep 14 scene, starting at ~ 0:22, what's the song playing in the background? Please post the lyrics here if you figure it out. I can't help but think this has some significance after all the mindblowing commentary on Dong Hoon & Yoon Hee's soundtrack, Joon Young & Yoon Hee's soundtrack and Dong Hoon's Yearning to be Free.
     

 

I've noted before that there were 2 different songs played for different platforms. On tvN channel itself, this was a Korean song with a male singer; online & in this tvN clip you shared, it's an English song with a female singer.

@ccl82, what a timely question.  I just came across this awesome blog a few days ago:

https://koreandramaland.com/jobs/?search_keywords=my+mister&submit=

https://koreandramaland.com/my-mister-2018-all-filming-locations-overview/

 

Hopefully we'll include something like this on the fan site some day.  But you asked about how easy it is to get there, and I have no idea. The owners of that blog are super nice though, so you may want post your question there.

Another of my favourites is this scene in ep 9.

The fact that Dong Hoon purposely didn't go home cause he was hoping to run into Ji An still gets me. The few moments where he's just watching her before she notices him. She's the one being observed now instead of him (even if just for a moment). The look on their faces when they finally see each other, the background music, the fact that the traffic light has to turn green before he can join her.

Why is this show so good?!!

Same here!!! I was meaning to post a few screenshots of this one a long while ago. I remember a few people posting about chinese numbers and their meaning. In this scene, number 4 was highlighted a lot. It was the first thing they show when DH was coming out of the station. The analysation was that number 4 signifies death and for DH, this means like the death of his old, passive self? I dont know if anyone else noticed, but when DH was about to cross the road to get to JA, there was a poster with a number 4 in it. 

 

When they met eyes, it was then that the lights turned green indicating “You may now cross” or something to that effect. 

 

Whether intentional or not by the director/writer, this remains to be one of my favourite scenes. DH also had that look  on his face.

LOL. Bruhhh, you're welcome.

 

I finished another rewatch session today with my cousin today. When I showed her DH's un-platonic imprints on JA's hand afterward, she said it reminded her of the way Indian PM Modi shakes people's hands.

No worries, though. She's a 100% shipper hahaha.

 

@arctichare @ann04 That scene we love, GIF-ified. And yup! Traffic lights changing from red to green! Signaling they can be together. Ahhh.

 

I think the look in his eyes is more curiosity than longing here. The longing gets intense just before the confession and afterwards.

I absolutely love their visuals in the walk after this scene. *heart eyes*

One day someone will have to write a post analyzing all the different numbers we see in the show and their meanings.

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. 


So this instagram post confirms that the house numbers 1 and 2 as well as the safe sign on the wall were planted by the director himself.  Yoon Hee once asked who is number one in DH's heart, and I think we can safely say the answer is right there on the door.

My Mister mention 180726. This tweet with the video clip got lots of RT

 

 

 

She is 

actress Oh Yun Soo 오연수. She posted about [My Mister] on her Instagram.

instagram.com/p/Bi6PAfJDR6P/

https://twitter.com/tmtchr69/status/1022534065520406528

 

Short translation:

 

She actually said "It's not like I want to act some particular role in that drama, but I really enjoyed this drama so much and even listening to its dialogue one by one, it's My Mister. I really enjoyed it so much"

 

https://twitter.com/melloviciousiu/status/1022529231618633729

 

Heechul asked "Perhaps do you want to act as IU's role?" She said "No, ofc not. I don't have that greed. It's definitely not like that. The drama itself is so well written, every dialogue is so well written. While watching that drama, it makes me want to start to work/act again"

The comments on that site felt like I was an extension of this forum. So much of love shown to MA

 

http://koalasplayground.com/2018/05/19/tvn-drama-my-ahjusshi-ends-with-high-ratings-and-acclaim-from-critics-and-audiences-alike/

 

between i I don’t know if it’s appropriate to share this here but I stumbled upon below Instagram which is basically MA goldmine. I don’t know who the owner is and I am bi weirded out by the name so let me know if this should not be posted

 

 http://instagram.com/deepsycho77

 

I was wondering what is about MA that has drawn me to it . I don’t like slow dramas , neither am I fan of melodramas or crying. I can’t even bring myself to watch Mother which so many of you have praised. I used to enjoy cheesy as F dramas like BOF.

 

Then I realised at the risk of sounding shallow the major reason is PDH. I loved his walk, his words, every sound he made, every breathe he took :) 

then of course there was the sizzling chemistry between lead. Even though in some places the drama felt slow but it added so much of depth. There was never a dull moment even when the leads were on long walk uttering nothing. I do have a tiny complaint , I dint enjoy the brothers scenes in the beginning. I found myself skipping them.

Even though it talked about life, sorrows and all those life talks in general or never felt preachy. 

I will never be able to let go this drama. EVER!!!!!!

You sound exactly like Ji An. :D  But isn't that partly the reason we're still here?  You're definitely not alone.

 

Koala's blog has followers who really love MA and very vocal in their support for the show.  I wish she would write her own review but alas, it looks like she's more drawn to rom coms like Secretary Kim and dramas featuring her favorite actors.

You are all truly awesome! I have been reading back some pages and articles on the fansite, and they have sustained my interest in the drama apart from the real world I’m inhabiting now. I’m very thankful for the posts and observations and analyses, etc.

I wonder if someone has commented on what DH keeps in his drawers? Unseen, private and potentially shameful stuff that others must not know about. The unconscious parts of his desires in which he sometimes loses (aka forgets, represses) stuff when they slip through the cracks and fall behind/below the drawer compartments, as Ki Hoon complains: “He is always losing something behind his drawers”.

1. The bribe – It was his first temptation. DH succumbed momentarily to a temptation he had never encountered before, perhaps out of desperation to resolve his financial situation. He covered the bribe with a file and put it into his drawer. Through the bribe, he received the full backlash of breaking a clear moral principle. Everyone knew about it! From his colleagues to his family. It was only through a miracle that he escaped the consequences and emerged as a phony righteous man. He knew he was not the virtuous man he appeared to be. He learned a big lesson about shame and not doing the right thing from this temptation.

The bribe was also his first link to Ji An. JA, suffering from similar/worse financial problems, also wanted the bribe money. Using covert means, she stole it from DH, only to relinquish it when she was unable to use it. The material nature of the bribe reflected the first level of desperation which both DH and JA were both facing. Money is important for survival.

2. Joon Young’ burner phone number list – This was the temptation of power, of using crooked means to have the upper hand on DH’s enemy. As usual, DH placed the phone list in the drawer. I think it slipped through the crack again (as Ki Hoon observed) and therefore was not traceable by the fraud/investigation team. DH was not comfortable about using the list as a weapon against his enemy, not attempting to open it when he first contemplated it during his bus ride home. This was not his style. But desperate times required desperate measures; when he was once again egged by JY to the point of suicide, he decisively retrieved the envelope from his drawer. Again, the “power” that he obtained from the phone list was unusable on one level – revealing his wife’s affair was a double edged sword that would hurt JY but literally kill him (hence the Mapo river bridge scene).

But on another level, the phone number list provided JA with the opportunity to help DH intentionally for the first time, by giving him a clue about the origin of public phone numbers. The underdog helping another underdog. It also broke the “see no evil, hear no evil” policy which DH had kept in the past in order to insulate himself from deep, hurtful realities.

3. Ji An’s slippers – Did DH wise up after being burned by the two previous temptations? After all he had tasted the consequences of near-public humiliation and of digging too deep into reality for his own peace of mind. The slippers had all the consequences of the first two temptations. So what did he do with the slippers? Put them in his private, unmentionable drawer. It occupied such a big space this time that removing it created a big hollow in the compartment. However, it was a temptation he could not return to Jian to “make things clear”. Whenever he removed his work shoes, he instinctively opened the drawer, tempted to wear those slippers. @africandramalover and others mentioned, this was DH reaching for his comfort. However, he was not able to show it to the public. When Chief Song asked, “You bought a new pair of slippers?” DH acted as though his deepest, darkest secret was revealed, and he covered the slippers and hid them again.

I like that the writer/director used the analogies for the three temptations of money, power and sex/love in PDH’s life. They were all morally/ethically wrong. Especially loving Ji An at this point of his life. No matter how much we sympathise with the third temptation, there are no moral exceptions to the temptations that beset PDH. I like that in the drama Pasta, LSK’s chef character was warned by his sous chef that mixing love and work in the kitchen is unethical, as a chef’s position gives prestige and power, and this power could be abused against those who have less power. Thus, if DH had used his superior position, maturity, knowledge, etc. to woo JA or to accept JA’s love to fulfil his emotional needs, he would be breaking these universal ethical laws. (I’m not saying JA is not powerful, wise, intelligent in her own right, but we must acknowledge that it was still an economically, socially, emotionally imbalanced relationship that put JA in a vulnerable position with a married man). Therefore, it was only when the coast was clear, when JiAn had left the company, when he was at a safer position at his workplace and the threat of scandal was gone, that DH was able to bring the slippers out of the drawer and wear them publicly and comfortably.

 

@justamom thank you for pointing out the similarities between ITMFL and MA. Really? Down to the last handshake? I'm just "wow"

*edit @sadiesmith thank you for the analysis of cars. They are so prominent in MA, especially the pink sensitive van who is beta male :lol:. By the way the white chevvy which Yoon Hee drives was always dirty and needed cleaning according to DH, before and after DH found out about the affair.

Is there a mindblown emoji?  Wow, @oldschooler, you seldom post, but when you do, everything you say is pure gold.  I'm feeling a little deflated with things lately, but this kind of post makes me sit straight up again, or should I say straighten me right up?  Do you remember which episode Ki Hoon says the above?  Early episode?  Actress Oh Yun Soo is absolutely right, it pays to "listen to its dialogue one by one."

Hot. That scene was so hot. It still funny how much DH was affected by jian closeness. If he had no feelings for her, if she was just a colleague I don’t think he would have shown this much of emotions in that one scene. 

It was like he would burn up in flames if he came anywhere near her vicinity so he was trying with all his might to not to touch her.

just look at that face and see how much of self control is being shown there. 

I need a cold shower  now. That one scene is worth more than any kiss/bed scenes .
