The simple thing we could  pick from this drama is life has got to be lived-that's all there is to it.

 wish  you all the best :heart:

When I read girlfriday's words in the Best Drama category, it struck me that she herself was one of the many who feel the strong attraction between the main characters beyond the platonic kind:

 

girlfriday: 

I can’t exactly describe watching My Ajusshi as a pleasurable experience, because it was so much more complex than that—an emotionally cathartic, deeply raw, sometimes painful journey through the darkest and loneliest moments of everyday life. It was a story about how tenuous human connection can be, and yet how a seemingly tenuous connection can alter the course of your life in profound ways. The simmering emotions underneath the carefully restrained performances were the highlight of the series, and in particular a surprise from IU, who kept me on her side despite playing a deeply troubled young woman who lashed out at others and herself at every turn. The whole time I was struck by how characters acted like real people—in all their embarrassing, unsexy, mundane glory—and the most important things were left unsaid, just like real life. Nothing about My Ajusshi was neat or satisfying in the way that dramas usually solve all problems and let us move on, but the beauty of the unspoken connection and bittersweet longing will linger with us that much longer, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My Ajusshi wins Best Drama and Best Director in Dramabeans Editors' Pick. It also gets Honorable Mentions in many other categories. Of course I totally think LSK should have gotten the Best Actor pick and Park Hae Young for Best Writing and all the rest, but I am sure they tried to not give every category win to My Ajusshi. :)

 

LSK got looked over again as the Best Actor :tears:...

But like you said @sadiesmith, maybe they just tried to spread the love... And a lot of commenters also thought LSK deserves the Best Actor.

 

I laughed when My Ahjussi get Honorable Mention for Unrequited Love category (who said the love was unrequited? hahaha)

 

Happy New Year, guys!

During PMC : The Bunker movie promotion in Taiwan, the MC asked LSK to speak like Park Dong Hoon and say "Fighting!"

He's shy, it's so cute :wub:

Happy new year everyone! Its been great scrolling through the comments one by one, like walking down memory lane.

Spoiler. Here goes the poem/song. Skip to next post everyone.

This is our beloved Jian's mind wandering, hoping, speaking.

 

Looking through the subway window at the coat on a slumping frame.

My heart reaches out to touch your soul praying your reflection does the same.

 

Moon bright this night but through dusty glass can't pierce the gloom from this depressing room.

Cold bite of night, in open air, can't dim the fond glow gleaned from my mated soul.

 

On the road I spy you engaged, seemingly cozy in your life.

But on another day those eyes can't hide such pent up hurt and strife.

 

At my reflection I say, "it's no big deal".

But why? Oh my! This longing do I feel.

 

Oh glass barrier if only it will break.

But your earnestness and morality so impossible to shake.

 

I long to meet. Long to touch. Long to share.

Shatter this glass barrier and expose your emotions bare.

 

In our special place we share a meal, a laugh, a drink.

A sanctuary where we don't care what other's think.

 

At my reflection I say, "it's no big deal".

Oh my. Won't deny. My heart you did steal.

 

Looking through the subway window at the coat on a comforting frame.

My heart reaches out to hod you tight. We now agree there is no shame.

 

Whoa.... thanks @popai5 for sharing this poem! No way I'm skipping this. Your poem is personal and heartfelt, so full of longing... I feel that it is such a fitting way to describe their relationship, lyrics for muted roads at night and silent stares. I think you are brave to share creative works in public too. Sometimes I feel I reveal myself so much because of what I write, especially since MA brings out Everything in me . So thanks for being brave!

 

I truly enjoyed the musical too, read it about 5 times. You melded together so many scenes perfectly. Sometimes JA and DH speak as one, and then complement one another so well as different people. Plus the traffic signals to go together, whoa... you must have given a lot of thought to this. I will keep this to remind me of MA. Yes, DH must sing more songs of longing in unison with JA :wub:

@widala It must be fated! :D

 

Something reminded me of MA, which is the poster of a movie (have not watched it yet) called Miss Baek starring Han Jimin, about the relationship between a sex worker and a kid.

Sometimes JA stands this way as well. Isn't this the way some sex workers stand to indicate who they are. Or stand by the roadside.My%20ahjussi%20kdrama%20-%20trailer_zpsoI don't mean this in a vulgar way, but I wonder if KWS wanted to link JA with the image of sex workers. After all she sells herself for money. Asks the CEO if she should strip in front of DH? If she should sleep with DH? (unforgettable lines :mellow:) . In fact the last part of the trailer for MA seems just like that if you do not know the context - a man hesitates in propositioning a woman, then walks away. But I guess this theory doesn't hold because by the time she stood to wait for him to give him the slippers she is in love with him...

@oldschooler, I always love your observations and insights. Thank you for continuing to share them here. I don't think I'd ever get over this drama.

Is anyone watching Memories of Alhambra? Many viewers are very unhappy with the way Park Sin Hye's character is written as it is severely underdeveloped. In a recent interview, the writer of that drama confessed that she originally pictured that character to be like IU's Lee Ji An. Something obviously went wrong in the writing because that character is nothing like LJA. But I'm so pleased that even drama writers are inspired by My Ajusshi.

Thanks @oldschooler for sharing your thoughts.

That windswept look maybe to symbolize the unprotected state of these orphans...

I watched the first two episodes before dropping it, because I already followed too many on going dramas at the time (Feel Good to Die, Children of Nobody and Sky Castle). I planned to watch it later after it's finished.

But, yes, there are some complaints I found in Twitter about PSH's character... Wow, I never thought her char was originally intended to be similar to our Ji An....

 

Lee Ji An is really a special character. Writer nim managed to keep her traits and importance intact through out the drama.

Sometimes in a kdrama, a strong female lead is turned into a damsel in distress once she met the male lead. Or, the development of the female lead got sacrifice for the sake of the male lead's arc.

LJA stayed strong. Even after she fell in love with PDH, she stayed as who she is. She wouldn't let PDH be her knight is shining armor (once she knew PDH found out about her debt and he wanted to help her pay for it, she quickly pay for it all)...

 

It's just too bad we didn't get to see LJA's struggling in Busan...

But since the drama is called My Ahjussi, so no wonder we get to know more about the "Ahjussi".

Maybe, if Studio Dragon would make the spin off, titled My Agassi, we'll get more LJA (wishful thinking :D)

I hate to make the comparison, but does anyone else see the similarities?

 

James’s new hero Maxim inherits his family’s noble title after a tragedy. “It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face,” said Arrow. “But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name.”
