Random thoughts after 9 & 10:

 

- Even though Soon-Jin is still wracked with grief, I love that we can see how she is still *alive.* Her horniness, her irritation at Mu-Han, even her anger towards Ji-Min and Kyung-Soo all show a woman who was once full of spirit, and who wants to enjoy life again.

 

- I think Mu-Han is just being very careful. He's seen her at her most grief-stricken, the worst moments of her life: her child's funeral, the day she divorces her husband, the day she attempts suicide. The coincidences are almost a bit too ridiculous but the story is still working for me. He knows how wounded she is, so he's treading lightly.

 

- He's also nursing his old wounds. He won't let her see the book that he wrote, and he won't let her dine with his dog. They're both going to need to break down each other's walls. And I am here for the slow burn.

 

- I think the daughter's name is actually "Eden" but the subs are spelling it "I Deun?" Weird. Anyway, she is gorgeous. I've seen her in a few roles before and she always stood out, mostly for being so pretty.

 

- Ji-Min. WHUT. I don't think a mistress needs to wear the "scarlet letter." It takes two to tango and her husband is the one who broke his vows. They chose to marry and raise their child together. I respect all of that.

 

But her behavior is over the top. That scene where she wraps her fist before punching him? That's just violence and NOT OKAY. And she barges into Soon-Jin's house to break her stuff, including her wedding photos and other family mementos? NOT OKAY. Are they trying to make us hate her? Because I thought we were supposed to empathize with her and there weren't any obvious villains here. But her behavior is NOT OKAY.

 

Because on top of everything else, she knows that their child died. Never mind the fact that she slept with someone else's husband, which is nothing to be proud of. But at least have sympathy for the fact that the woman is grieving. Ugh, Ji-Min is turning out to be a huge bummer.

 

- Kyung-Soo. Okay, he's just being an idiot. It's nice he wants to help pay for Soon-Jin's house and try to take care of her in his own way. But he literally made your bed, and now he needs to lie in it. His behavior is no help to either woman.

 

Having said that, seeing him break down in the cemetery was genuinely heartbreaking.

Hello to chingus :)  I love this drama and our hurting, hilarious, weird, live for today OTP. How not to love the drama that can set me laughing hard one moment and then aching so sadly the next. I enjoyed all 6 pages of comments/information on this thread and would like to thank everyone in advance for the pictures, clips, comments, analyses and information that make watching and understanding this drama all the more meaningful and interesting.

 

I have always found Kim Sun Ah such a talented artiste and she is excellent/at her best in SWK1st. I love her many past roles but her role as Shin Mirae in City Hall is my favourite so far. Perhaps An Soo Jin might take over that position.

She must have sued someone over the child's death and also the trespass and assault also must relate to that.

Moohan said " I am not allowed to love her" and "use me however you wish to" - wonder if he or his family has anything to do with SooJin's daughter's death...

Good be be back in forum.  I've got a week of spring breaking coming up [So needed.  Work has been kicking my butt and swallowing my time] and I think I'll be sending some of that time here.  Slightly disappointed that we only have six pages on this drama, but also somewhat glad.  My last few dramas accumulated post so frequently that I couldn't keep up and had to quit. Another reason I was off was that few dramas held my attention and even if they did, they didn't made me feel the need to post. [Enjoying Radio Romance now and watching is enough.] Add to all the factors t

 

Should We Kiss First is a weird thing all of it very own.

 

It is a quirky romantic comedy [Mi-Ra's life philosophy and Soon-Jin voice overs take it out of the range of standard rom-com].

 

It that were all it was it would be entertaining enough.

 

But in truth it seems to be a quirky romantic-comedy set atop a devastating tear jerker-mystery. Sometimes the tonal shift is strange but I find myself going with the story and eager to meet up with the drama when it stops by for it's two day visit.

 

Kim SunAh's, as Kim Sam Soon, made me a kdrama convert.  I'm always eager to see her work.  Even though I recognize some of her performance quirks in her work here, I happy to be in her company again. 

 

This is my first Kang Woo Sung drama.  I am enjoying the fullness of his low-key performance.

 

Oh Ji-Ho and Kam Sung-Su are handsome.  I've never watched a Oh Ji-Ho drama, even when I'd been aware of them. Saw Kam Sung-Su in My Love, Madame Butterfly; I got tired of hearing people shout Na-Bi time and again.

 

I have never responded to Park Si-Yeon's acting before and have always disliked every character I've seen her play.  I actually don't think I've finished any of her dramas, and if I watch I always root for any character but hers.  That being said, I dislike Ji-Min's sense of entitlement and violence and think she needs a therapist post-haste. I also recognize that Park Si-Yeon is really killing the role.  Her break from work might have been good for her acting. 

 

I'm sure I'm missing some plot points because my system is streaming so slowly and halting like crazy; I'm convinced that hackers are mining Bitcoins in the background. I've lost access to so many good streaming sites that at times I just feel like giving up.

 

The structure of Should We Kiss First is interesting. There is the present time rom-com (with twinges of tragedy), and the melodrama from the past that is being played out in Moo-Han's memory.

 

Questions about the melo

1) What are the circumstances of Ji-Ho and Soon-Jin's daughter's death?`

2) Why does Soon-Jin's mother blame herself?

3) What was Soon-Jin's relationship to Ji-Min's family before Ji-Min's affair with her husband.

4) What lawsuit? The circumstances of Soon-Jin's record.  Whose house did she break into and vandalize.

5) Why is Ji-Min such a gangster.  Will she grow up.  Will she ever be able to see the world from a perspective other than her own.

 

A question I have for all American soap operas and several K-dramas: Why do you let crazy enemies into your home? Why do you pick up calls from your enemies, interrupt your day, and go to meet them? Maybe you can't keep them out of you office if you and them work there together, but why meet them? Why let them into your home. Why don't you slap people back? If slapping is against your principles, why don't you press charges.

 

I almost had to go get an ice pack for my head to keep from exploding when Ji-Min went into Soon-Jin's apartment and started breaking things.  Time after time people keep telling Soon-Jin she needs to arrange her life so that others can live easier required another ice-pack.

 

Kyung-Soo trying to work off his guilt towards Soon-Jin without paying attention to what she wants is the opposite of kindness; it is selfishness. If he feels bad, he should try to make amends.  If his effort is rejected he should go live with his guilt with his wife the boxer.  Or leave his wife the boxer.  He knows how to leave a wife, he's done it before.

 

Spoiler

I knew that dog was wearing under-eye bags make-up.

I notice that Moo-Han doesn't object to the dog's make up.

 

 

The present.

-It is easy to dismiss Kyung-Soo calling Moo-Han trash as him being "jealous-possessive" Kyung-Soo, yet I wouldn't be surprised to discover there are reasons related to Moo-Han's interaction with Soon-Jin in the past for his statement. (Perhaps her suicide attempt and what he assumes was Moo-Han's part in it.)

-Despite Moo-Han framing his choice of number of times to sleep together as related to the  superstition of seven being lucky, I suspect there is deeper meaning to it. I think it is related to the number of times he saw Soon-Jin cry.  Or the number of times he saw her in distress and helped/or didn't help.

 

-During how many desperate moments has Moo-Han seen Soon-Jin at the end of her ropes

a ) Ten years ago, Soon-Jin's daughter burial day.  (ep. 10)

b ) The day Soon-Jin and Kyung-Soo were at the courthouse divorcing. (This one is inside the episode, so I couldn't search.)

c ) Six years ago, the day of heavy turbulence followed by the zoo and suicide attempt and staying by her side at the hospital.  (the airport and the photograph ep. 2,4,6, 8) This could be seen as three perhaps.  On the plane, at the zoo, at the hospital

d) A month (?) agoThe day her debt collector visited. (ep. 12) I don't think this is a legitimate part of the count.

 

Please add what I might have missed.

I honestly think that it's the sexual openness and honesty within this drama that is so refreshing and at times can cause blushing as well.  It's the mature feeling and thoughts and yes even adults acting in childlike foolishness which often brings on laughter in thinking Wow did that just happen!!  Even more it's the way in which this story unlike others pulls your heart in so many different directions by giving us an ending every episode that in fact is a part of the beginning...

 

When did MH fall in love with SH?  Was it love at first sight?  From the debt collector it would seem he has always known where she lived!!!  From the burial sight we realize just how long he has known her and he said he had seen her cry many times over and we have viewed more than a few of those moments.  He also leads me to believe that it's not only his dog that is dying of cancer maybe he is dying too. For there is a reason for him saying they couldn't be together once, did he mean like forever because his time is running out.  Like when he didn't answer MH about being with her to see the Cheery Blossoms Bloom.  Is this the reason he doesn't want his daughter to get close to him because he wants to in fact keep her at arms length to dull her future pain.  Because there is no doubt in my mind just how much he loves YD...

 

Or could it be that SH's daughter and her mother were in some kind of car accident and MH somehow has knowledge or is a part of or relates somehow to that moment.  One things for sure if SH lost most of her money in going to court fighting over something. That the defense and defender would have had to have had more money than her. Mind you not always but often Which makes me have even more questions???

 

Also I believe that his daughter ( YD ) just met her match head on in more ways than one in HM.  He has the ability and life knowledge and will show her and teach her what life and I hope what love really means in the future.  She has a lot to learn but I have a feeling he will be able to mold this selfish and unknowing young girl into someone even he could fall in love with...

 

To some SJ does come across a little harsh sometimes but it's easy to forget all that she has not only had to endure but it was so bad she no longer wanted to live.  I was thinking when she realized that MH had changed her clothes it wasn't him seeing her nakedness that was her first thought but the scar on her wrist she thought of first.  In reality she lost her heart and life back then and she continues to lose everything even now.  We cannot understand that kind of sorrow or pain unless we ourselves have lived it.  Some might wonder how it is that MH can remember everything about her and every moment they were together in the past.  Yet SJ still has yet to remember his face or any of those moments which makes me even more realize just how bad her life has been.  When you lose everything those you love and your life as well.  Everything around you is like a fog and you become like a ghost it's not really living it's as if the world is spinning and your standing still unable to engage in life.  Unable to feel or think or even remember.  For just breathing in and out takes all you have...

 

:ph34r:Mind you these are only my thoughts I wish I knew the real answers...  Only time and the writer can give us that:wub:

I watch the ending bus scene again and again because it was so understatedly poignant. When SJ shared the earbuds, the choice of music, the slight smiles and looks.... And because it was one of the quiet moments when SJ is not in seduction mode. Her smile felt genuine and it was like she's enjoying what's left of MH's companionship before he finds out about her actual present situation. I think MH was genuinely happy to see her on that bus. Ironic how she said that when coincidences repeat, then it is fate. Because mh is much more aware of the repeated coincidences - for 10 yrs already

@mundane9  I too have been thinking about why did Mu Han said that they were not allowed to love each other. I also thought that it could be related to the death of Soon Jin's daughter, that somehow Mu Han or his family was involved. Hence protecting her, helping her (Zoo, suicide, hospital, reassuring her that it was not her fault) when they met 6 years ago and then in present time paying for her debt, and offering for her to use him as she wanted@USAFarmgirl pointed to an alternative understanding of why he said `not allowed' and that was due to a possibility that not only was Byeol dying but Mu Han could be sick too and hence could not even assure Soon Jin that he would be there for her to see the Cherry Blossoms together, come spring. So far we have not seen any sign or hint of him being sick except for the degenerative arthritis that he mentioned, so I hope that we will not see a terminally ill Mu Han.

 

@hyall  The lawsuits must be related to Soon Jin's daughter's death. And in her utter devastated condition, she could be committed trepass and assault on the culprit(s). I am curious as to what did Soon Jin's mother do that she confessed that she committed a sin to Soon Jin's family.

 

@monalisa  Mu Han's dog was diagnosed with cancer and the vet had given him not more than a month to live. He advised Mu Han to put Byeol to sleep as Byeol was in pain but Mu Han could not bear to do so.

 

Like you, @dzareth, I love the quiet moments that Mu Han and Soon Jin shared in the bus and could feel that at that moment, these 2 lonely, hurting individuals found solace by being together, sincerely.

It's getting quite riveting as smh says he's not allowed to love her....very bizarre and it's likely to lead to some tears in the future episodes....
