Nice observation! Yes, DH is passive in many aspects of his life and that includes his career. I think that is one aspect of his story arc that might or might not be addressed in future episodes.

She actually tried, when she requested from DH the 10M she needed in exchange for DH not having to buy her dinner for a month. DH initially granted that request but in 1M-a-month installment. :sweat_smile:

I guess that is typical of guilty parties that’s cheating in a relationship – they would project their guilt through anger and it could manifest at various petty moments.

I never doubted it was deliberate, either, but I'm just surprised they actually then put watercolor on IU's hands to make it even more "imprinted"! That means PDnim really meant it. LOL.

 

At first I thought it was enhanced through CGI or any other post-production techniques. I didn't expect they'd resort to old-fashioned make-up/watercolor. 

 

I tried the tight grip on myself and I think no way can you produce such marks without risking any possible fractures. :sweat_smile:

Hahahah,Kwon Na Ra is the reason I started to watch this drama.  I found some clips of YuRa & KH, and I thought it was a comedy originally.

 

When I started to watch this drama, it was like a club hit on my head......

 

The first time I got a glimpse of Yu Ra in the preview for ep 5, I was mesmerized! That's despite she was in her shabby, after-vomit look! :lol:

 

I guess it helped that Ji An was still very disheveled in the first few episodes. :sweatingbullets:

Park Dong Hoon is like the typical family good boy in East Asian society. All of his actions come from his family's expectations, not his own will, so he lives a miserable life. I was exactly the same as him until I was 32  , so I can understand him very well.

According to AR's word at the promotion party, Park Dong Hoon was good-looking, had good grades, and had good athletic ability. So this person is actually very proud inside and has some sense of superiority. He is really better suited to start his own business rather than holding back in a big company, especially considering the state of the Korean workplace.

Comparing the image of Yura and Jian together in episode 15, Yura does look like a mature woman, while Jian is very much like a little girl. Considering that Kwon Nara is only two years older than IU .....

@actionscript @Thomas Zhang

 

I see that PDH is a more like a simple guy. His goal in life is just simple thing..


However it seems that his wife does not want a just simple marriage I see. She wants passion and fire hahaha.  That is why she looking for another variation lol.

 

btw I am going to watch ep 4 <3

I’ve also read somewhere (or perhaps it was an interview?) that they have put watercolor in the hands of IU to portray that tight grip. Poor IU if those marks were indeed the result of a real tight grip!! :lol:

 

 

Wow.

It's nice to hear that it is really KWS's intention. 
But I would very envy IU if LSK really tightly held her hand. :blush:

This post documents the currently known structures of the MM script: 2,3,4 structures.

 

---

 

["two" structures]

 

1. The same people do two similar things.

 

ex1: The hospital appears twice.

 

EP7: DH takes JY to the hospital.
EP15: DH takes JA to the hospital.

 

ex2: DH walks someone home.

 

EP7: "Should I walk you home?" (With JH)
EP12: "No. I'll come with you." (With JA)

 

ex3: KH asked DH if he felt ashamed that KH is a cleaner (EP5, EP16)

 

 

2. Let two different people do the same thing.

 

ex1: Say sorry x10.

 

EP6 KDL
EP15 LJA

 

ex2: Saw JA's grandma in the cart and got shocked.

 

EP1 KB
EP5 DH

 

ex3: Someone was sleeping, suddenly remembered something important and got up from the bed.

 

EP1 DH
EP3 DW

 

-

 

3. Two different groups did similar things.

 

Example: BUY ME SLIPPERS = I LOVE YOU

 

---

["three" structures]

 

1. Let x be something and c be the result, then the first three structure is

 

x
x
x
c

 

It means that if x repeats three times, a result will appear.

 

The function of c usually is to stop the element x happens again.

 

Examples.

 

 

2. Let A and B represent two different roles respectively, then the second three structure is

 

A
B
A

 

Examples.

 

---

["four" structures]

 

1. Let A and B represent two different roles respectively, then the first four structure is

 

A
B
AB
BA

 

Or its permutations.


Examples.

 

2. Let x and y represent two things, respectively, and x' and y' are similar things of x and y. Then the second four structure is as follows

 

x
y
y'
x'

 

Or its permutations.

 

ex: DH calls JA's name

 

EP1: Ms. Lee Ji-an! x4
EP5: How nice. It's a good name.
EP10: Live up to your name. It's a good name.
EP16: Ji-an. Have you found peace?

 

-----

 

Revise 1: So DH called JA's name is not a "three".

 

Revise 2: DH only twice wants to die in the whole show. Because if suicide is three, then it will be the xxxc structure. But it seems there is no any c appear. So in EP14, the scene we discussed before is not a suicide scene. I was really wrong.

I watch ep 5 and I would rather to describe PDH as a simple man than a passive man. 


Passive is if he chooses to do nothing. But he is not a passive one from what I see.

<3 He takes action when LJH tried to tease him. He affirms to her that he is not an easy person. When he asked her to talked with him inside the meeting room. 
<3 He also takes action with what happened to his brother. When he went to asked that man to brings a parcel to his mother. 
 

I see that PDH is a man with integrity ^_^

what I don’t understand from PDH’s wife is, if she needs to have a new relationship to make her happy and complete then why she did not ask for divorce?

Maybe she was waiting for an excuse to ask for divorce.  DH was transferred from Design Group to Security Check Group last year,which means that his career was finished. She definitely knew that and didn't do anything to stop it.

When DH was fired and failed to start his own business and went bankrupt like his elder brother, she would definitely file for divorce.

It's really accurate to describe him ’simple', thanks for the idea!!!

[The function of coffee at home.]

 

(1) Continuing the "two" structures introduced in the previous article, let's use these understandings to look at the two coffee conversations between DH and YH at home.

 
(2) We also can use these understandings to compare the coffee and beer elements that show up at DH and YH's home.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The idea of this article is based on @Thomas Zhang's post.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Spoiler

(1) The two coffee conversations of DH and YH belong to the first category of the "two" structures: The same people do two similar things.

Such a category always presents us with contrasts, like good-bad or big-small.

 

 

[EP5] The first coffee conversation.

 

In EP5, DH can still let YH make coffee for him, but he finally left without taking a sip.

 

spacer.png

 

spacer.png

 

YH: Why don’t you open a business?

 

DH: ......

 

YH: It’s not like you can stay at the company forever. Wouldn’t it be better to open a business while you are young?

 

DH: Running a business wouldn’t be easy. I would need eight experienced employees to get the business approved. If I think about the employees’ yearly salary, equipment expense, and maintenance expense for the office, I would need to start the business with at least 500 million won. If I fail to find work, I would be 500 million won in debt.

 

YH: Why do you worry about going into debt instead of earning money?

 

DH: Why would anyone go bankrupt if it’s easy to run a business? Don’t you remember what SH said? ”It’s better to get paid by someone even if you earn a million a month because losing money while you sit idly drives you crazy.” How could you say that when you saw SH’s struggles?

 

YH: Until when will you go to work every day like an animal that will be butchered?

 

DH: ......!

 

YH: Do you call this living?

 

spacer.png

 

DH: ......

 

YH: Just quit! I will help you.

 

spacer.png

 

---

 

[EP13] The second "coffee" conversation.

 

In EP13, DH stopped letting YH make coffee for him. He drank buckwheat tea instead.
 

spacer.png

 

YH: I’m going to make coffee. Do you also want something?

 

DH: ......

 

YH: What do you want to drink?

 

DH: Anything but coffee.

 

YH: How about buckwheat tea?

 

DH: Sure.

 

spacer.png

spacer.png

 

YH: When do you get the results for the promotion screening?

 

DH: …… Next week.

 

YH: I hope you get the promotion. I really do. I really hope you get promoted.

 

DH: ......

 

spacer.png

-

[Conclusion of (1)]

 

In EP5, DH is still willing to let YH make coffee for him, but he doesn't drink a single sip, which means he can still maintain superficial harmony. But in EP13, he doesn't want to drink coffee with YH anymore. In some sense, such a situation tells us that DH can no longer maintain superficial harmony, and DH and YH really have a very different ideological gap under the surface.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

(2) Now let's compare coffee elements with beer elements at home. Such comparison belongs to the third category of the "two" structures: Two different groups(elements) did(with) similar things(functions).

 

1. Pick up empty bottles.

 

spacer.png

 

2. YH's question.
Do you want a drink? / What do you want to drink?

 

spacer.png

 

3. DH and YH's sipping scenes.

 

spacer.png

 

-

[Conclusion of (2)]


Because the MM crew already compared beer and coffee for us, it means that these two elements are a pair. 
That is to say, they are in the same usage logic in MM.

So if beer is a clue of divorce, coffee is also a clue of some plotline.
But we all know that the contrast of divorce is a new beginning, so we can determine the idea that coffee is a clue of a new beginning.

EP 5

 

Just finished ep 5 <3 

 

" It's easy for rich people to be nice." (Lee Ji An)

 

I thought that nice for Ji An is only being kind, like smiling to others. Smile is the very simple, kind thing that we can do to others. For me. However, apparently, for Ji An, being nice perhaps if she could shares what she has to others. That was why she said, it is easy for rich people to be nice. Hmm. I can be understand Ji An more. Perhaps also she said that because of she hopes that rich people can be more sharing to people like her.

It is a bit difficult for me actualy to understand a character like Ji An who would not ever exist in the real life. Her character is too imaginative if compares to PDH character who is more realistic.

 

"..But married women are the safest choice for men. They would never babble about the relationship.. dumping a woman who still has feelings could cause some major headaches.."  (Do Jun Yeong)

 

It is clear that DJY only looking for a temporary satisfaction with PDH's wife. He does not want to get headache because of a woman. Hahaha. Poor PDH's wife. She is just a sport tool for DJY. She deserves that. She does not sincere to her husband. If sleeps with other man then no need to be good/nice/kind to her husband anymore. Why would she give an idea to her husband to start a new  bussiness and she will help? while she is having affair with her husband boss? ckckck.. This woman is too dirty. My proverbs verse suits her. Hahaha..

 

<3 Oh ya, I don't understand the POV of a senior should be promote first than a junior. Because of I was born in a different generation. 60's 70's generation perhaps thinking like this. But for us, it's all about capability. This is my POV. But I see people who are as old as PDH seeing this matter in a different POV. It's oldies. I see nothing's wrong if DJY surpassing PDH in office. Perhaps DJY is more capable and he is more capable if not how could he being promote. What is unacceptable is the thing that he sleeps with PDH's wife. 

 

It will be a serious matter if promoting people just because of he is a senior or older than the junior who is more capable in working.

[Function of the tea room]

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The idea of this article is based on @Thomas Zhang's post.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Spoiler

 

(1) The staff seats in Saman E&C are specially arranged.

spacer.png

 

(i) The position of Executive Director Yoon is closest to the CEO's office, which obviously means that he is on DJY's side.

 

(ii) The distance between PDW's initial seat and JA's seat is similar to the distance between DH's minister seat and JA's seat. 
So when DH was promoted to executive and changed to DW's seat, he still could see JA's seat directly from the office. The only difference is from looking at the front become from the back. This is a deliberate arrangement by the MM crew that DH can always see JA's seat from his seat no matter what.

 

(iii) PDW is changed to Executive Yoon's seat after returning to Saman E&C in EP16. As mentioned above, this is the closest position to the CEO's office. After DJY leaves, the next CEO will be Executive director Wang. And because the number one of Executive director Wang's faction is PDW, such fact can make (DJY, YST) correspond to (WYG, PDW).

From this, we can observe that it makes sense that the MM crew didn't let PDW return to his original seat.
 

Because the staff seats in Saman E&C are specially arranged, in the same logic, the MM crew is deliberately arranged the frequently-occurring tea room to be close to the JA's seat.

Its purpose is that the tea room is a harbor for DH to get reasonably close to JA.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

(2) The photograph which hanging on the wall outside the tea room is significant.

spacer.png

 

If we already know that the cross represents JA in MM, when we see the photograph of the cross hanging on the outer wall of the tea room, 

 

spacer.png

 

we will know that the tea room has some meaning in MM.

 

From the following scene, we can make sure that the tea room is not just a harbor for DH to get reasonably close to JA. It is definitely one of the plot clues.

 

(EP5)

spacer.png

 

Notice that this is a long shot. 

In MM, the long shot is sometimes used to hint the audience that something is hidden in the background (for example, the clue of the tree symbol is obtained from the long shot.)

So the long shot pictures sometimes mean that "this scene is meaningful." 


If the MM crew had already decided to used a long shot to capture this scene, they could hang other images or not. But they chose to hang the cross photograph, which represents JA, on the outer wall of the tea room. Such intention directly declared that the tea room is definitely a special space with an important plot in MM, and it may appear in another form later.  After all, the most common use of the whole play is the "two" structures.

 

So with the cross photo on the wall outside the tea room, the MM crew wants to tell us here is that the tea room is a clue for the plot.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

[Conclusion]

 

The purpose of the tea room is to let DH use the coffee in the tea room as an excuse to get close to JA. And there will be another "tea room" in conceptual in the later plots that can let DH get close to JA reasonably.

This is why Asian countries will always behind Europes and USA in economic. Our manners defeat human creativity. 
 

Just because some people born earlier, doesn’t mean that they are more capable than people who were born later.

 

btw I am sorry if this post is off topic. Hehe..

 

I just feel that senior junior competition in this drama is so.. strange. 
 

DJY is a man who will always looking for a chance to always grow in his career. While PDH is a man who is always satisfied with simple things and routine. A man with POV like PDH can not be a CEO from my POV. He is lack in ambition and spirit. To gain more in career, people need ambition. A simple man with simple POV and love simple things like PDH, will just live the same way everyday until he dies. The only lack in DYJ personality is he has no sincerity to others. But that is human. Always have good side and bad side <3

Whoa! You're absolutely right - the way AR described him in Ep 14, you would think he would have accomplished more in his life, and that he probably would have a sense of superiority and pride. What happened to him?? :tears:

@the_sweetroad, I think maybe the Merry Christmas last time you mentioned is meaningful.


KWS always loves details, anyway.
So I think you really find something here.

 

Spoiler

spacer.png

 

I guess the MM crew let the cross represent JA, in addition to represent salvation, and maybe a little bit of Christianity idea.


God always listens to people's thoughts and never speaks, but he will silently helps everyone.

 

Then to DH, JA acts like a god. She always listens to DH's emotions and misfortunes and does not tell him. But she will help him silently.

 

I don't know.
Maybe like that.


So I think EP4 this picture is meaningful.
Maybe it means JA is listening to DH's emotions.

These are very impressive insights! I had to prepare lots of strong coffee (pun intended) to make sure I fully grasp all the concepts and patterns you are explaining here. And they all make sense!

In the office floor plan, how poetic that JA's seat is literally at the center of the entire room!  She is the main protagonist after all.

Not really an off topic at all. I like your perspective that younger people are not necessarily less competent compared to older people in the work place. In the same manner that younger people are not necessarily less mature and more naïve when it comes to love. You will need to retain that view as you go along. ^_^

Ep 6

 

No matter how great a woman is, she is beneath her husband's reputation. A woman can't stand seeing her husband beneath her. (PDH's mother)

 

The quotes above is so negative. Hahaha. The positive quotes should be, a woman will be very proud if she has a husband with high reputation. hahaha.. From my POV, it's not about who is beneath who. It is more like if you fall then I fall with you, if you stand and fly then I too stand and fly with you. Because of husband is the head of the house. His position is.. precious. His status and everything will be affecting his wife.

 

Btw, I see that the problem with PDH's wife, was, she wanted 100% attention only to her. She affirmed that their family is only three people. PDH, her, and her son. This is a bit selfish. If so then why she left her son to be raised by her old mom in law? Her problem is she does not want to have only a simple life. That is why she could not understand her own husband. He is a simple husband and a man. 

 

Then she goes to find a young man who is not as simple as her husband and sleep with him. 

 

I see that PDH's wife personality and DYJ's are completed to each other. They always want more and more and more. Both are greedy. 

 

Poor PDH. Actually he is not a someone who suits to live in the Joseon period. He is just someone who is too simple and unfortunately surrounded by people with negative ambition. His wife and his CEO.

Ahem.. I have not see 'love' topic between PDH and LJA yet :relaxed: and I hope not. I just like PDH to be just as simple as what I watch from ep 1 - 6 <3

 

Btw was that you or @the_sweetroad who wrote about young people came and shook the world of older people? Actually it is just the difference POV between generations. That is why it feels like 'you turn my whole world ups and downs'  :) 

 

I found an interesting quotes in ep 6

 

Men experience puberty twice. Once when their energy increases and once when their energy decreases <3

I had to prepare lots of strong coffee (pun intended) to make sure I fully grasp all the concepts and patterns you are explaining here.

 

:joy: LOL.

 

Yes, @YukawaCattle good insights recently! I'm not able to get into all those details without a lot of concentration, either, and I'm amazed you can lay it all out for us. Especially the cross photo outside the break room. I had thought it was just two buildings at first! Where did you get that layout of the office - did you draw that?

 

And yes @actionscript JA's desk really is in the middle of all the action. Wow!

I guess the MM crew let the cross represent JA, in addition to represent salvation, and maybe a little bit of Christianity idea.


God always listens to people's thoughts and never speaks, but he will silently helps everyone.

 

Then to DH, JA acts like a god. She always listens to DH's emotions and misfortunes and does not tell him. But she will help him silently.

 

 

Ooh, nice! I have always wondered why PDnim would "allow" the Christmas tree window in the show. If he didn't like it, he would have just picked another building for DH to break down in front of. I like the way you laid these out.

 

And yes, lots of Christian themes in the show...and I like that not only does JA help DH silently, she also makes herself say the words out loud to DH that he really needs to hear. Everyone else around DH talks "about" him, but JA is one of the only ones that encourages him directly. I think God does that with us, too. :wub:

Ahem.. I have not see 'love' topic between PDH and LJA yet :relaxed: and I hope not.

 

Not by Episode 6, just yet. :lol: Lots of different types of love about to come as you go.

 

Did you like the scene when Sang Hoon tears his coat on the fence and there are feathers flying all around? And the soccer coach asking the middle-school soccer kids, "Do you think these adults know the rules?!" and the kids saying, "No."

 

That was when I was absolutely hooked on this show - I thought those elements of comedy were so creative and brilliant. I also loved that the show surprisingly introduced this part of Dong Hoon's life to us - soccer - as late as Episode 6.

Btw was that you or @the_sweetroad who wrote about young people came and shook the world of older people? Actually it is just the difference POV between generations.

 

I agree with you to a certain point....I think younger people's POV does shake up older generations' POV. However, in this show, Dong Hoon's POV is still very different than others in his generation....which is why he receives a lot of criticism and worry from those around him.
