[Drama 2018] Something In The Rain / Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food, 밥 잘 사주는 예쁜 누나

Recommended Posts

Wow this drama is really good! I remember hearing all sorts of positive things when this drama was airing but didn’t get a chance to watch it until now. I’ve only just finished episode 8 and stayed up all night watching lol can’t wait to watch the second half tonight. 


I’ve never watched a drama with JHI before. He is fantastic and adorable yet incredibly handsome at the same time. He has really great chemistry with SYJ. I remember seeing lots of articles about them potentially dating in real life due to their very natural and believable chemistry and I can totally see what all the fuss was about. SYJ is great as always.

 

Such an easy to watch drama with lots of romance and realistic components. Wish I had watched back when it was airing with everyone else in here but plus side is that all of the episodes have already aired so I can marathon now :D can’t wait to finish watching and I hope the sweetness continues throughout the drama!

@J13, glad you're enjoying the drama. The thread was pretty active during broadcast. It was PHI's first leading male role in a drama, and he was fortunate to be paired with a veteran such as SYJ. He is very adorable in this drama, and this drama shot him to superstardom very quickly.

 

The director of this drama is also an experienced, respected veteran with some very provocative, thought provoking dramas that are slice of life and yet show the tensions and stresses of relationships very well. Even if they are not the makjang of chaebol relationships, he seems to like to show regular relationships that are a bit unusual with some social taboos still, e.g. the woman being older than the man as in this drama or a single father and an unmarried yet marriageable woman or a young man with a much older married woman.

@stroppyse thanks for the info! :) I’ll have to watch PHI’s other projects. I know he was recently in a drama with HJM and she’s always great too!

 

I’ll have to check out the directors work too. I always love dramas with realistic components and helps that I’m 30 now too and it feels more relatable haha

 

Might have to rewatch some of the sweet moments from episode 1-8. There are so many! Great seeing a drama where they don’t hold back on kisses :D

I finished watching this drama last night and it was so good all the way to the end!
 

I love how devoted JA and JH were to each other and how they still continued to see each other despite JA’s mums objections. Their relationship was very realistic. I was surprised that they literally just broke up like that and didn’t keep in contact whatsoever though. I can see why it may have seemed like the right choice when their relationship was put into perspective but it kind of felt like they fought to stay together for nothing. I don’t think JH was wrong in wanting to leave with JA when he could see how down and tired she was but he should’ve consulted with her first before applying to transfer to an overseas branch. In saying that, I get that JA has responsibilities but maybe it wouldn’t have been such a bad idea to get away from everything particularly seeing that she was just broken after JH left and she is an adult after all and entitled to make her own decisions.

 

JA’s mum was really something wasn’t she.. it was so awful watching her talk down to JH and GS. I get that parents want the best for their kids but my goodness, she helped raised these kids and she knew how kind and genuine they were and yet she still judged them and highlighted their lack of parentage. It was quiet shocking to watch and worse that she tried to guilt trip JH too. I was shocked that she tried to act as though it wasn’t her fault at all for JH and JA breaking up in the end when she was certainly a contributor to their break up. 
 

I adore JA’s dad and brother but was really disappointed that they tried to keep the brothers wedding from JH given JH and JA’s brother were close friends. I get that they didn’t want to cause further drama and were happy to see JA with a new partner but still, it was pretty sad. 

I was sad when the drama ended. I wished we got more of the angst between them when they saw each other again. You could really feel the longing, angst and tension between them. I would have enjoyed a bit more of that before they finally reunited and then maybe more happy reunited scenes hehe but won’t complain given this drama gave us so many sweet moments. I could just watch JH and JA all day though, so much sweetness!
 

This drama for me really came down to JHI and SYJ. They were both so good and their chemistry really needs to be applauded. JHI kind of looks like Kim Soo Hyun sometimes, he is so good looking and yet adorable too. When he wore a suit, I was just like :wub::wub: SYJ is just perfection as per usual. I’m currently watching CLOY and am HOOKED! 
 

I might have to backtrack and read everyone’s comments on this drama now cos I am a bit obsessed lol this will definitely be one that I constantly rewatch!
