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.

 

 

 

She was actually doing great with the saviour part in the beginning. I think she let herself get distracted by the casting. Truly opposite to My Mister where the actors became the characters, she tried making a character that fits the actors. I wish she just carried on with what she intended to do in the beginning.

 

The first few episodes were really great and exciting but the pressure to do more romance might have gotten to her. A shame though. I really liked the subtle but compelling relationship that was developing between them. 

 

My Mister isn’t labeled as ‘romance’ but it got people saying otherwise. 

 

Thats why My Ahjussi remains so unparalleled. Really THE best drama. 

 

And has anyone else been catching up on SKY Castle? Officially the highest rating cable program now. Such an amazing feat. 

 

Im on episode 9 at the moment but its taking longer for me to get hooked. Im still going to finish this regardless though.

This scene still makes me tear up whenever I rewatch it. I hope IU, LSK and My Ajushhi team will win many deserving awards for this gem of a drama.

Found this on Twitter

24 Jan 2019, in the talk show JTBC Movieroom, Lee Sun Kyun was comparing a movie "I, Daniel Blake" with My Ahjussi.

But, I don't know which part of the two projects he saw as similar.

I haven't found any clips or articles about it. Many other clips and articles are about LSK's movie "Helpless"...

Maybe, you guys can help translate what is written in the pic below...

Annyeong, everyone!!!! :D

 

I can't believe it's already 2019!  It's been a while since I visited this thread.  After so many months of being so hung up on this drama, checking this thread and the fansite almost everyday, I was finally able to go back to my normal self.  HeeHee.

 

But coming back here, catching up on everyone's posts, getting to listen to IU/LJE's unreleased song for the soundtrack, and seeing that scene again of Lee Ji An standing by the roadside, waiting for Park Dong Hoon so she can give him the slippers...and I'm back where it all started. The ache isn't as acute as it was the first time I watched the drama, but it's still there, and it still lingers.  No wonder even the actors have a special place in their hearts for their characters and this drama.  It really was beautiful!  

 

I hope they release "The Station" and create an official MV made up of scenes from the drama.  Better yet, maybe the team that created the drama should put together the unreleased scenes and shoot new ones just for this song.  I bet that will be a big hit. 

 

Thank you, @Joseph Lim for sharing that video.  :)

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.”

What a coincidence, especially in her title "The Mister." 

 

@ann04, if you go over to the SKY Castle thread, I think you'll find many familiar names there. I haven't started but plan to. Wish it were a little easier to access.

When the announcement about Sky Castle came out, I don't really interested on watching it. But I decided to try at least the first episode to support Oh Na Ra (Jung Hee). Turned out the drama is very good!

 

Is Sky Castle qualified for Baeksang this year, according to broadcasting date (Nov 2018 - Jan 2019)?

If so, then My Ahjussi will have a very strong competition, besides Mr. Sunshine...

An essay on Dramabeans comparing Korean dramas to old Victorian serials and how viewers affect the course of the storytelling:

http://www.dramabeans.com/2019/01/serialized-stories-and-the-viewer-voice/

 

SERIAL_2.jpg

 

A drama like 2018’s My Ajusshi is a prime example. It faced immediate criticism even before airing due to the 20-year age gap between stars IU and Lee Sun-kyun.

 

The production went to great lengths to convince the public that the story was not a romance, and The Korea Herald reported that in order to assuage viewer criticism, the production team chose to self-censor some of its content. It was reported that though producer Kim Won-suk was “not fully content with the moves,” they self-censored and kept with the original message of the drama as best as they could.

I noticed that a lot of My Ahjussi videos with English subtitles (mostly subbed by IUteamstarcandy), like behind the scenes and vlive interview, are no longer available :tears:

I wonder why...

Is it because copyright problem?

But, some of the videos are still available...

 

It's just so sad... 

Although the original behind the scene videos are available on TVN YouTube channel, but as an international fans who doesn't understand Korean, I really appreciate those subbed videos...

 

And, I can't find any video on My Ahjussi press conference (sub or no sub) anywhere...

 

Maybe, if you guys have links that work, please share them here...

HK Open TV is airing My Mister. 

 

hkopentv_zpseywdesda.png

 

It might interfere with the artistic quality of each episode, but they edited the 1-hour-plus episodes into 45-minute episodes. And!! The series is dubbed in Cantonese. However, the live streaming is only open to those on site in Hong Kong. 

 

I also found this on Youtube, not sure if it has been shared here before, since it was first posted four months ago. I like the caution that we should respect the residents in this nice neighbourhood.

 

 

I wish I could watch Skycastle. One day I will and join you all at the thread. Right now, I will have to make do with another "spy" movie "Operation Finale".

YES! Maxim is the name of Lee Ji An's favourite coffee. That is why *the* mister is called Maxim. Ah, so obvious...

I miss it, too.

 

My mixtape function on Youtube Music played "Dear Moon" today during my daily fight with the traffic jam and I started tearing up.

 

I feel like this show will never completely fade in our hearts, this warm + bittersweet feeling.

 

It's sad that many of the subbed versions are disappearing. I hope Viki picks it up someday.

For whom missed my ahjussi :blush:

 

This uploader made a beautiful editing seems he/she made it related to the circumstances or by the topics.

Very nice and simple for we who love this drama but didn't have much time to engage in front of tv for 1 hour to spend 

I really enjoyed even without sub. because 90% of the conversation still embedded in my mind and i felt refreshed because i just have to concentration in the actors  acting.

Jian..gratitude 

Jian...learn a live lesson from dear Ahjussi.

Hope everyone is having a good start to the new year!!!

 

@Yana Mujay Thank you for posting all those video clips! I really appreciated the video of IU singing the Christmas song. I thought of the lyrics "in your eyes, in your face, in the way you hold my hand".  It reminded me of the ending of MA. How DH smiled so brightly and how tightly he held JA's hands. That song was very nice.

 

@widala Thank you also for all your clips! I don't know where you find them but I really get my MA addiction fed by all your hard work. That clip of LSK singing 10 years ago is priceless!

 

@oldschooler your observations are always mind-blowing. JA's wind-swept look does look like the young orphan in Les Mis. Thank you for your words regarding my attempts at being creative. I was hesitant to post them but I love you guys and MA so much that I felt comfortable in sharing. I thinking of writing something from DH's perspective next.

 

I knew I could write what I wanted yet feel safe in this sanctuary of MA love.

 

@Joseph Lim Thanks for sharing IU singing 'The Station'. I like the song. It really grows on you.

 

@sadiesmith Thanks for finding and sharing all these articles. They also help to feed my MA addiction.

 

Happy Lunar New Year everyone!  Can you believe it is almost one year since MA started airing?

 

I can start watching 'Sky Castle'. It has started to show on Viki. Hooray!
