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

Recommended Posts

The camping trip where JA reveals how old she is, kind of.

 

 

JH: See, I was right, wasn’t I? I told you that they were no comparisons to you.
JA: That’s enough of that.
Girl1: This is the first time that I’m meeting a girlfriend of Joon Hee oppa.
Girl2: Me, too.  
JH: She’s pretty, isn’t she?
Everyone: Oh! Oh!
JH: Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? She’s pretty.
Girl3: You’re an unnie to us, aren’t you? What year were you born?
Girl1: Yah, how can you so rudely ask something like that as soon as you meet?
Girl3: Is it rude?
JA: (after taking a drink) I will be 40 the day after tomorrow.
Everyone: Oh. That’s so startling. Oh, I really couldn’t tell.
Guy: Oh, you can go over there. Please go rest.
JA: Why? We can do it together.
Guy: No. Please leave it to us. It’s fine. Please go rest.
JH: Yes, go hang out. We’ll be done soon.
Guy: Please go rest.


Girl1: Oh, unnie, we’ll do it.
JA: No, I’m almost done.
Girl2: Unnie, please rest.
Girl3: We’ll do it.
Girl: Just please rest.
Girl2: We’ll do it.
Girl: Hurry and come over.
JA: You’ve worked hard.
JH: Just with words?
Guy: Hey, because we have to drive, we can’t even drink, so why don’t play a game of volley football?
Girl1: That’s enough.
Girl2: What’s that? You do it yourself.
JA: You’re going to play volley football? That sounds fun.
JH: You’re going to play?

 

 

So, JA does a defensive move when she's asked how old she is. Rather than just giving her age (35), she actually says that she's close to being an even older age (40). So, she's trying to head off any criticisms that she's trying to act/be younger. And, actually he group finds out that she is older, they kind of treat her like an elder person. It's not because they think that she's fragile or anything like that necessarily. It's the in-grained deference to an older person that the culture promotes, and they are clearly nice people who have been taught their manners. Unfortunately, the deference is making JA self-conscious, though she's still trying to have fun.

Hello! A newbie to this thread. I seldom go to soompi but whenever there's a new drama that I'm crazy about, I suddenly remember soompi. I love reading spazzes here coz I have no one to share it with and can relate to it. I'm so in love with Son Yejin & Jung Haein's character. What are they called? I havent checked the thread yet. I havent checked ep5 & 6 yet coz I wanted to watch with subs, but maybe I'll just watch it without subs anyway. Cant wait anymore:heart:

JA gets closer to the girls.

 

 

Girl: Nabe is also really delicious.
Girl2: Nabe? What is that?
Girl: In a pan, you…
Girl: Unnie, use whatever you need. Though, I don’t know if this is going to be what you need.
JA: I’m okay using anything. Though, you all have everything. You are really amazing.
Girl: I usually leave just leave it in oppa’s car. Just in case something like this happens.
Girl2: We know that you deliberately make it happen.
Girl: That’s right. Aren’t you the one to make it rain like that?
Girl3: Yes, you’re a total god. A god.
Girl: How did you know?
Girl2: Unnie. Unnie works in an office, don’t you? I’m totally envious of you. I couldn’t get a job, so I went to graduate school.
JA: I did hear that there are a lot of circumstances like that these days.
Girl3: At least, you went to graduate school. I used all of my money from part-time fees to apply to positions, but so far haven’t gotten a job yet.
Girl: Yah, do you think that a job is the end of it? Look at me. It’s my fourth office, but I want to leave again.
JA: Why?
Girl: Wherever I go, it seems that the female employees are used just to get coffee for everyone. I worked hard to pile up good specifications and had gotten a job. I’m not a personal secretary even, but they keep having me run errands.
JA: I also had to go through all those things.
Girl: Unnie did as well?
JA: Of course.


Guy: Is this a temple? Say something.
JH: You say something.
Guy2: When it’s just all guys, it’s really no fun at all.
Guy3: But, hey, what are the girls doing that they’re so quiet?


Guy: What?
JA: Just a moment. (throws a bag of chips at the guys)
Girls: Get out! Get out! Go downstairs! Go downstairs! Get out!


Girls: Bye. Bye. See you later.

Playing and kissing in the snow scene. There is no dialogue in this scene, but wanted to point out that while the song is still "Stand By Your Man", the artist has changed. The version in this clip sounds like Tammy Wynette. Definitely not Carla Bruni as in previous episodes and scenes. Plus, the shots are beautiful, the couple is beautiful, and they're having so much fun.

OK, episode 6 is still so sweet!! Seems we will get storms next week. 

I just watched the clip of ep 6 in YT. Some clips are so funny, especially when JH went to JA’s room :D 

If I were JA, I will be very nervous as well. Having secretly dating, then he came to the room with parents and his sister outside the door :wink: 

I love it when JH hugs JA in the police station. Haven’t watched the episode yet, so I don’t know how her brother’s reaction to this. 

Argh, can’t wait for the full episode with subs!

Thanks @stroppyse for the translation of clips!!!

More JA and JH on their date. People are starting to find out. It was the store owner, and now it's BR.

It's assumed that her brother already knows too (that hug :wub: has been quite obvious), so...how do you think the others (her parents, his sister...) will know it? Will they tell them or will they been discover? I think it will be the second, and that would be worse.

Aigoooo next week will be intense!! But i totally love the way they look after each other!!! Thanks to all the recappers!!:wub:

 

I think right now, they are totally in love. And so it looks in the preview: so beautiful that JA's sentence: 'I never knew that I would love or be loved by someone like this' (translation from bah+doh, althought I'm waiting for a more complete translate to make more theories :D).

But I don't know what to think about that car with the opened door from the preview. Seriously, it scared me a little. Will her ex-boyfriend become crazier?

 

And of course, thank you very very much for all translations @stroppyse.

JH asking JA to send him a kiss on a phone call.

 

 

JH: You’re acting very expensively. Is it so hard for you to send just one kiss to your boyfriend who has been working all night? Yah, how could you leave that out?
JA: Chee. Goofing off like that, you’re going to be fired.
JH: I told you my company can’t do without me. Like a certain person.
JA: Is there a person like that? Did someone say that she can’t live without you?
JH: Work or whatever, I’m going to just toss it al in, and go chasing after you.
JA: If you want.
JH: You think I won’t?
JA: Okay. Okay. (sticks her tongue out instead before hanging up)
JH: Really. Oh.


(JH gets a photo message from JA after she fixes her makeup and puts on lippy)

 

 

So, "acting expensively" is a Korean term meaning that a person is being very hard to get or to cooperate, meaning that their time and effort must be so expensive that it's not worth the other person doing whatever. So, by JH saying "You're acting very expensively", it's about the same as saying "You're being very stingy" in English, I guess.

SH shows JA the card that GM had sent with the flower bouquet.

 

 

SH: Has there been no contact from Lee Gyu Min?
JA: Why are you suddenly talking about him? (SH throws the card on her vanity) What is this?
SH: I wasn’t going to say anything, but I just can’t hold it in. Was this guy that much of a piece of trash?
JA: You. Where did you get this?
SH: In the flower bouquet, Joon Hee brought it.
JA: Th..this. You’re saying that Joon Hee saw this?
SH: What do you mean saw it? When he went over and half killed him. Seo Joon Hee even smashed the notebook and everything.

 

(JA goes to GM's apartment)
GM: You! Why are you doing this?! Are you crazy?! Why?! Stop it! Why?! Why are you doing this?! Hey! Hey! Hey! What are you doing?!

 

(Neighbor makes a call. Then SH gets a call.)
SH: Hello?

JH and SH go to the police station to get JA.

 

 

JH: What is it? What happened?
SH: I don’t know the details either. I just got a call asking me to come here without letting Mom and Dad know. I think I shouldn’t have told her about Lee Gyu Min.


Police: Who are you?
SH: Hey! Hey! Hey!
JH: Let me go. Let me go.
Police: Why are you being like this here?
JH: Oh really.
Police: No matter how angry you are, you can’t do that here.  Actually, if you don’t interfere, that could turn out okay.
SH: I’m sorry. I’ll talk to him. I’m sorry.
SH: Why are you making such a scene? Huh?! Hey, let’s go get Yoon Jin Ah out of there first. You. You stay here. Wow, he’s really crazy.  Really.
JA: Don’t do it. Joon Hee.

 

 

I think SH has got a clue now as well after that hug.

Episode 7 preview

 

 

JA: Because you’re dating me, your heart has suffered a lot, haven’ t you?
JH: Don’t worry about it. I’ll do better.
JH: You have something you’re not telling me, don’t yo?
SY: This is the first I’m hearing of this.
Father: Whatever you have to tell me, I’m ready to hear it.
SH: That you’re not related by blood, that there are no legal issues, those words have no meaning for me. Why is it Yoon Jin Ah?
JH: Because she’s Yoon Jin Ah.
JA: I’m sorry, Seung Ho.
SH: Yah! Yah! Yoon Jin Ah!
JA: I didn’t know that I would receive love like this from anyone.
JA: I love you. Very much. For a very, very long time, I’ll love you.

 

 

Okay, so the confrontations over their relationship will start next weekend. Not sure if I'm excited to see those episodes or not, but definitely some anxiety starting to kick in. Though, I'm reassured that they still go to each other in the preview when things are going down.

 

That's all the clips that JTBC has put out. I'll be back with some commentary later once I've had a chance to watch the episode properly.

The realistic ajumma in me saw foreboding and trouble with JH's tendency to get incensed really easily, act on impulse without really thinking first ... and escalating in last episode's laptop incident.

 

 

GM is a useless d*uchebag type with a FRAGILE ego ... and challenging, goading and playing with such EGOS is always a bad move as it will escalate.  Even opening hugging JA in the police station - in a way it's "proving" GM's suspicion or theory that JA was also cheating on him, which will lead to a diff path of revenge to execute -  bec now GM will twistedly feel "OMG, HE's been wronged!"

 

 

While understanding the WHYs the guys are incensed (esp JH), I am also keeping in mind GM is a lawyer ... and a scumbag of a human at that -  who has a twisted opinion of himself (and always still wants to look like a shiny good person, despite whatever wrongs he does. Hence GM's fdetermined persistence in restoring her parents' opinion of him, regardless of what it takes. (Like dude, "does it even matter"? )

 

And if oma's darling SH is involved, or dragged down with it ... resentment and blame will enter the overall

picture too. Ditto GM if he's ever dragged down - it will never end. Even kneeling down was such an outrage the dude cannot live with.

 

As it is - oma's double-faced with NIMBY (not in MY backyard) syndrome

All "family" on one hand with KS and JH ... while telling SH that such a (longtime) friendship does nothing for him, or is not influential.  Oma has a closet condescending/patronizing take on KS and JH ... while on the surface acting like they're all closely-knitted chums.

 

This, and That overall here and there ... makes the coupling even more intimidating for acceptance - beyond the already existing factors (that they're all like 'siblings' almost and that conventional traditional mindset on the age-gap diff)

 

====================================

Coping Styles and Problem Solving (so essential in a couple) are quite diff in both of them

 

 = JH is very direct, (except when it comes to hismysterious yrs of crushing and being smitten with JA, and masking it all) and prone to impulsiveness when he's incensed. He's also younger, and can be a little more brash without further thought to consequences.

 = JA is a more tactful crowd pleaser, and yet she can also be somewhat passive-aggressive to get what she wants (someone just mentioned she's capable of being a little "cunning" too).

 

We definitely know both JA and JH are not INcapable of lying and acting, to get out of situations. -_-

 

Her mom is going to so drive JH up the wall - he's also being somewhat suffocated with oma's gushes over GM or what a suitable guy is for JA, in that dinner both families had together.

 

I am actually ALL for JH's suggestion that they declare their relationship and announce the explosive bombshell once and for all, and then deal with all the punches together.

Direct Confrontation! Please ... DO IT! Aja!

 

========================================

 

The observant thoughtful attention to detail and little subtle nuances  by this observant Director, and the way it's executed by the actors (especially a less experienced Jung Hae-in :thumbsup: ) is impeccable. It's the magic which makes this drama come across as so organically natural, and relatable in a way (Rather than the really romantic ones where you have to park your brains  to believe - while enjoyable, you rationally and logically know it's also NOT quite credible or realistic even when it seems 'slice of life').

 

The euphoria of JA skipping to get her popcorn, on their movie 'date' ... and that movie parallel. So succinctly spot-on simple.  JA's such a combination of 'respectable Noona' +  the gleeful 'girl' trapped within. (once again so relatable too - we have images and expectations to upkeep as our chronological age progresses ... yet really one is only as old or young as one feels ... and those skipping moments).

 

 

for eg:

Jung hae--in:  JH was working, after JA refused to give him his smooch over the phone.

He returns to his drawing but seemingly his pen was clicked off, and he goes through the process.  It's little touches like that (either the Director or the actors doing it) which makes all the moments so believeable. 

 

========================================

While I enjoy romantic scenes, bed and kissing scenes just like any one else' and while the lovey-dovey is nice, a whole sequence of them can be somewhat of overload and LESS memorable. Sorry, it's just ME.   :ph34r:

 

Less is sometimes MORE to leave more of an impression  (Ok I am an oddball) :ph34r: 

 

Endless pecking (not soulful kisses too) were a little of sugary-overkill in ep 5 and 6 (yes yes yes I am weird) = it just gets a little DE-SENSITIZING when there's such an endless montage of them. They kinda blur into each other, and I treasure them less. :ph34r:

 

I actually enjoyed so much more of the teasing build up (ep 1-4. Es 3-4), and the fewer but more memorable romantic encounters here and there.

 

One of my favorite enjoyable scenes thus far is beginning of Ep 4: Hand Holding.

 When she initiated the hand holding, and the hilarious reaction when he quickly turned the tables on her, without skipping much of a beat beyond the hicupping. 

 

The one with his many changing expressions and how quick he was to take advantage of the moment -  (those holding in yet satisfied smug elated expressions are so exactly what I would do myself, lol!)

His upper 'hand' (pun NOT intended) at surprising her ... by switching to HIM covering her hand,  coolly done without missing a beat once he recovered from his shock, so very quickly. VERY WELL PLAYED!

His gamut of switching expressions from surprise  => quick recovery satisfying elation  =>  'smugness' and stifling  amusement while trying to hold it all in

 

And those side-gazing observations he was enjoying teasing out - stealing side gazes and enjoy watching JA's nervous surprise :wub:  - all so enjoyable to watch and making this moment one of my favorite rewatches.

Ditto that fast walk after ... when he turns to ask her what her handholding meant. And then cornered her,  to catch her  "Man and Woman relationship" comment.

(He does this quite a bit) - he SIDE tilts his head as realization dawns, and then AHA! dawns ... and then watch that smile just slowly light up as realization sinks in, and then he will so play up the moment/her comments for all its worth! :wub: As she gets all flustered. :lol:

 

LOL!   Sooooo  FUN to watch.  I wished they had teased out more of these. :lol::wub:

 

JH also enjoys sitting by the sidelines watching reactions (as in how she was going to drop the bombshell to his friends regarding her age at camping - he was so leaving it to her, and enjoying watching it :lol: ). Seems more like trait of an observer who is actually NOT prone to impulse. He's a little paradoxical like that. Outgoing, direct and impulsive, yet so good at Masking what he really feels behind quiet yet highly observant drawings, juxtaposed with his teasing joking (an observant introverted bystander type who is normally more detached and introspective ... rather than reactively involved or impulsive)

Comments, thoughts, speculations, blah blah blah up until ep 6:

  • I'm still frustrated at JA's mom, especially after watching the things she said to SH about JH. How can you make someone like her realise that there are so many redeeming qualities a person can have other than their family and social background? In JH's case, although he has unconventional family background, at least he's financially independent, has found success in his field, and manages to live independently without his parents. As far as I can see, he's adulting perfectly fine. If I was a parent, I would happily let my son hang out with friends who can still fend for themselves even without their prestigious social status and background.
  • Regarding the speculation that this is all from 2015, I'm starting to strongly believe this since our main protagonists still use an iPhone model that has a headphone jack (probably iPhone 6 that's released in 2014). I mean, everyone in Kdrama tends to use the latest phone model even if they're dirt poor, right? :D
  • MISS GOLD PURPLE AKA GEUM BORA SSI HAS BEEN SUCH AN MVP FOR THE PAST TWO EPISODES. I've always loved her sass and how straightforward she is when it comes to dodging the pervy boss' bullet. But these past two episodes made me love her character even more. Her prank with JH was brilliant hahahaha (Off topic: the actress reminds me of Sandra Oh on Greys Anatomy)
  • Am I among the 0.0001% who thinks that there's a somewhat disturbingly low amount of background story/flashbacks? I can't pinpoint if it's just what I feel or if I want those flashback scenes. I'm still curious about the dynamics of JA & JH's relationship before he left Korea for the US. And honestly I can't accept the reason why JH likes JA is because she's... Yoon Jin Ah. Kid, please come back when you have better answers :mellow: On a more serious note, JA needs to know exactly why and what her best qualities are to be even more confident.
  • Am I exaggerating or should I really be worried that the duration per episode decreased significantly from about 1hr 15mins++ (ep. 1-4) to 1hr 5mins (ep. 6)???

I am crossing my fingers so hard for this drama!

Maybe it is also similar to saying "You're being high maintenance."

Episode 6 rating.

I know ratings aren't everything: sometimes, I'm enjoying a drama a lot (and I think it's really good) but it hasn't quite good ratings but...I'm so happy for 'Pretty Noona...'. I wish it'll increase again in future episodes.
