[Drama 2018] My Mister, 나의 아저씨 - Best Drama at 2019 (55th) BaekSang Arts Awards

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry that I missed the 1 year anniversary celebration here. So many exciting posts since my last visit (I skimmed the last few pages). The nominations for the Baeksang are exciting and well deserved! "Daebak!"

 

For me the one year anniversary was some time this past week or so. I didn't start watching when it first started. I wanted to have a few episodes to watch before I started. Can't believe it is already a year. Can't believe I can't re-watch it since DF closed down.

 

I wanted to say that I watched 'Touch your heart' and the way the lead characters finally expressed their like for each other was how I wanted our DH and JA to express their feelings for each other. I kept seeing DH's and JA's faces over these other characters.

 

I also saw 'The light in your eyes'. I almost gave up on it. I actually said to myself that if the younger version of the main character did not appear soon I would stop watching. The younger version showed up again so I kept watching. But it was only for one episode. I understood the focus on the elderly and the message but I felt 'come on give us the relationship of the young leads'. Finally the big reveal occurred in ep 10.

 

Everything made sense. I think 3 or 4 episodes could have been cut to make the same point but the beauty of how everything 'connected' reminded me of MA. In MA every episode (except maybe half of one episode) was crucial for the story to fulfill us. TLIYE was close. The acting was great but a tighter story would have made it better. I guess nothing matches our MA. MA spoiled me. Now no other show has really satisfied me. The search continues. Just have to wait for a LJE and LSK reunion!!!

"fan" on Dramabeans frequently translates interviews with Korean actors. Her latest translation was for an interview with actor Kim Nam-gil of The Fiery Priest in which he said some very nice thing about My Ajusshi:

 

Q: Nowadays, people prefer drama that does not follow the lazy formula and the audience has various tastes.

Kim: Among my recent dramas, "My Ajussi" was the best. Until I was in high school, next door asked me to come over if there was no one at home. They said since my mom went to the market I should stay with them until she came back. In My Ajussi, people gathered in Jung-hee's store and shared affections. As I watched the drama, I teared up without realizing. As society changes, we changed too but the essence didn't. It was a drama that reminded me of what I had forgotten. It was also good that all actors attracted attention (not just the leads). When we do a drama, we make actor group chat room, and I try not to alienate even a small role. They are the same members, and you have to draw them together so that a good work can come out. No matter how good the actor is, he cannot do it himself. My Ajussi was a drama that showed the drama is a group work.

 

Q: There are more projects that distribute the proportion of roles rather than making the two stars stand out.
Kim: It is thanks to viewers who were changed. People watch a lot of US drama, J-dramas, and the platform like Netflix has opened up so relaxed contents couldn't survive anymore. But there are people who are unaware of it and stay behind. It's better if it's persevering craftsmanship but it is just stubbornness. I feel bad. I want my older seniors to lead at the front. I don't like that the past sensibility is discarded because the world has changed. Because of them, we've come to this far. Like you feel touched when you hear songs going back to the 70s, 80s and 90s, I think that we can still talk about those days, just as emotionally. We can all be old people. I am an old guy.

I love Kim Nam Gil, if he's not up against LSK for Best Actor, I will be rooting for him :D

 

Baeksang is 3 days away, I'm excited but also anxious...

Hopefully My Ahjussi team will attend...

Does this remind anyone of their first watch experience?

I didn't realize KNG is up for Best Actor also. It would be such a tough category to win.

Looking forward to tonight's awards! I'm going to a dinner party but will check my phone surreptitiously...

 

Sorry for the radio silence! I lost access to my account (forgot password) and then got locked out and it was a bit troublesome to get back on here...

 

I have a joke to share @chickfactor checked out Light in Your Eyes like you recommended and it was sooo slooww but sooo beautifully filmed and halfway through the episode I was wondering why is it so preachy and giving me all these conclusions so I paused and....

 

my husband had played the last episode first instead of the first episode! :lol::lol::lol:

Here's a little anniversary gift to us all:

https://givemeslippers.wordpress.com/2019/03/24/interview-with-iu-and-lee-seon-kyun/

 

No subs though. :bawling:

 

 

 

 

LSK says in this interview -- "this was the first time in my life so many people around me loved a drama I acted in. I actually had friends in tears calling me about it."

 

The earlier translation posted by IU fan account is also a little off. IU also says that the line really made her think about her role, about her relationship to these older people around her, like "why would someone like Ji An say something like this"? And that helped her really understand Ji An. They both praised Park Hae Young for writing such amazing dialogue.
