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


Recommended Posts

So, who's ready for some translations? Sorry this took forever, I've been busy with my own work. But it's been a joy to have My Ahjussi's script next to me, which I pick up every now and then for a read of one of my favourite scenes.

 

Here's a translation of the script for the ending cafe scene, to be continued...

 

I was struck by how spare but precise the writing was, and also how much room the director had for visual cues and his own interpretation. More later, enjoy!

 

A Large, Spacious Coffeeshop

 

The back silhouette of Ji An, standing in line at the cash register.

Out of nowhere, Dong Hoon's laughter!

The back of Ji An's head, completely still. There isn't a sound.

Hang on. Her ears prick up. A moment later, the faint sound of Dong Hoon's laughter and voice.

Ji An turns around. Ji An's back, going into the spacious hall in search of Dong Hoon's voice.

That's right, searching...In one corner she sees him seated, his back to her

Unmistakably his voice.

Dong Hoon sits facing another man, laughing and talking.

The man glances at Ji An, wondering why she keeps looking over here.

Dong Hoon follows the man's eyes, turns around for a look

She looks so different he cannot, for a moment, recognise Ji An

Dazed, his face brightens as he realises who she is, finally seeing her face, he smiles brightly

Ji An: ...!

Dong Hoon: It's been a while...

 

The two who have not seen in each other in a long time look at each other with joy.

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.          

The moment he learned that she killed a man...   The moment she turned around because she was sure he would be disgusted and abandon her...   The moment he said he would

Detailed analysis - Last scene   If Dong Hoon was still being the old Dong Hoon, he would just say "가 / Go on "   Before the time skip, every time DH and JA had to part ways, he al

It feels a little odd to be back writing after such a long break. I have been keeping up with some of your posts every now and then but felt a little distant. I am sorry for taking this long break, but for anyone who is still interested, I am trying to continue writing this fanfic. I feel like I am the one who needs the comfort it used to bring more now. So I hope that my attempt to continue to express this journey continues to bring you joy and comfort:)

Another lovely chapter, @LaRoseme. So glad you picked it up again. Your update and the other one posted recently just kinda made my week. It had been a long time since I visited the fanfic site, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the new posts.

 

Gosh, isn't this beautiful?

Hi all!!

 

Happy December and it's almost time for Happy New Year!!!

 

I was surprised to see MA is on Viki. Now I get to watch it again. Yippie!

 

I have basically stopped watching dramas like 'Love is Beautiful, Life is Wonderful' but somehow I got hooked and I am watching it. I only mention this because in one episode as one main character is planning to leave the country a female character suggests shaking hands as a goodbye gesture. The male character hesitates and doesn't extend his hand. So the female character says, 'Then do you want to hug instead?' That reminded me of JA asking for a hug. The directness of this character also reminded me of JA. Also, the male and female characters in this drama are meant to be together (at least I believe that is how the drama will go). So, having them shake hands is like JA and DH shaking hands. They are meant to be together. An acknowledgement from this writer regarding MA and of JA and DH's relationship.

 

Has anyone watched VIP? I got hooked by all the guessing of who is he cheating with? But if you did not care for the story just check out the last 10 or 15 minutes of the last episode. There is a scene of a train going by. It reminded me a lot of one of the railroad crossings in MA. The street looked kind of narrow but the railroad signs and the light pole looked very familiar. Then the drawing of the railroad crossing in one of the posts above made me think maybe it is the same street. The character in VIP is sitting outside of a photographer's studio. As the camera pans away from him you see the rail guard come down and a train going by. Almost suggesting that this character missed the train. One part of his life has ended and it is time to move on. It reminded me of DH falling in the snow by the train tracks.

I think this is another acknowledgement by the PD or writer of this drama of the scene in MA and the symbolism used in MA.

 

Maybe I'm projecting my false ideas but maybe they are honoring our show.
