She was really insignificantly far away for him to have spotted her from all the other passer-by's.

Maybe our Joon Hee has eagle eyes to spot a woman's beauty from a far lol :D maybe it's the reason Jin Ah was kinda teasing him for his reason to fall for her at that dinner scene and Joon Hee said "no, it's not like that". His playboy side in him is there lol

I'm not sure, but I think today they've filmed on location (there are some photos/videos in instagram).

At the moment, it's not a drama with a lot of these scenes (we have watched a lot of scenes in JH's apartment :wink:, in the office...), but I love when we can see some things like that thanks to Korean fans :).

Do we really need a backstory of JA and JH?  I don't need the backstory because i feel they gave enough info to see how they treated each other before the relationship changed to them being a couple.  Some of their interaction implies this playful relationship.   

 

Love happens for almost any reason and at any time.  For some it may be physical attraction then loves come but for others it can be through a conversation and the two connects..it's really various forms.   I feel that they connected through their conversation (the ease and comfort with each other).

Hi Five! = profile pic :lol:  (hey, whatever happened to all the range of other emoticons  that used to exist on older Soompi?)

 

 

So ok ... he picked HER out from that people-scape of passerbys. Bec she was pretty.

Ok i guess kinda romantic since he spotted just this ONE person from afar. <_<

.

But in a way, that makes him all his actions thus far kinda persistently like a very proactive SY no; who keeps hitting on him, making excuses to eat together etc .... just bec he's cute and she's interested? :lol:

 

See WHY I hope for more depth in backstory to it?

 

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

@ tiMadam .... I would really prefer to think yes it spawned out of a comfortable ease with each other, rather than the random "WOW, she's pretty - WHO is it? Let's go closer and see if I can pick her up?"  (sunshinefate,  maybe I would prefer NOT to think of him as a player).

 

For that same reason,  I don't need to hear "saranghaes /// na du saranghaes" out loud because you can see through their (HIS actions esp) interactions that he's head over heels smitten with her and that he really cares (how considerately sweet and thoughtful is it, that he actually STAYED in her parking lot after dropping her off, on the morning when they both overslept? :wub: :thumbsup: Just for waiting around -  he scored BONUS points, in my bks = he was so worrying totally WITH her, it wasn't just lip service - he actually cares.

(most guys would just do the gf drop off, and then drive off. some dudes won't even bother to ask if it was ok later, or what happened later  at home.  and the worse ones who are more interested in the physical (ie sex) part ...  the girls may even head home themselves while the guy carries on sleeping)

 

All the way fr Ep 1, with the rather creepy gesture of taking a pix of her sleeping. :heart:  JA seems to wholly consume his life and thoughts, way more than he does hers (to the pt he cannot work, or is willing to skip work, quit job etc). Which is why that random "who is she, she's pretty" does not quite satisfyingly suffice.

 

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

Aka I would buy into this insight of yours:   " I feel that they connected through their conversation (the ease and comfort with each other). "   but prefer NOT to think he was attracted just bec a random stranger out there was very pretty.

 

Which is why that general thought (here, on DB and what I also think) that he had been crushing on her even back  then, before leaving - hoping to forget her or get over it in those 3 yrs away - makes it more palatable to me,  bec of how he has been acting since Ep 1.

Next 2 episodes will definitely feature the couple coming to terms with others’ opinions (positive or negative) of their relationship.

 

I can’t help but feel this sense of foreboding that GM will exact revenge on them now that he confirms they are a couple. I don’t like how PD nim panned to JA’s handphone that dropped on the ground when she confronted GM at his apartment.

 

FBE8B3FF-39DC-4EBD-ABE8-1682B9A32E85_zps

 

I am thinking GM is going to extract information on JA and JH being together from her handphone. Their private lovey dovey messages to each other etc... Perhaps, he will send this information to JA’s parents to prove his “innocence”. Imagine the uproar this will cause with JA’s mum.

I think with this drama, Jung Hae In has secured himself to be a reliable male lead, someone who can pull in the high ratings. I've been watching so many "just-okay" drama that I know it's difficult to have a lead who can pull in the audience from ep 1 to the last ep. 

 

He has been making excellent drama choices, Goblin to WYWS to Prison Playbook and now this, hopefully the ratings will be exceptional moving forward, fingers crossed for the plot. No to a weak plot! No no no. 

I have to agree to disagree with you. Yes, he did show that he is the lead actor material, but for someone like him (new to the role of main lead) choosing the right project with the right main lead actress is the key to success. He is not the only one pulling in the audience. For me, Son Ye Jin is the reason why I started to watch this drama. Yes, I do like him in this drama. I know he was in two other dramas recently, but I didn't watch both of them. I don't even remember seeing him in Goblin, though I watched that drama ep to ep. But for SYJ, I will always watch her movies and dramas. There is a reason why she is called the "queen of melodrama". If she didn't have that power of pulling in the audience, directors of dramas like this can't just rely on newcomers just because they are "handsome" and showed some "promising" acting skill.

Agree with you to 100%. Son Hye Jin is warranty of success. I started this drama 1. for the noona/dongsaeng story which i like, 2. for Son Hye Jin which i totally love for acting! Jung Hae In is one of my favourite korean actors but i've discovered him only in While you're sleeping. BTW both actors deserve an award for this drama. Their chemistry really ROCK!!!:wub:

This drama makes me smile a lot. Nice contrast in terms of mood to my other favorite, My Ajusshi.

Geez if you're watchung MA I would agree it is vastly different. I like the male lead there but it is too heavy for me.

 

I am replying to this also to comment about disparaging remarks about this show. Personally I rarely get incensed or personally insulted by people liking or disliking it. It is after all a drama with multiple ordinary scenes. Vs some with heavier themes or big dramatic scenes. But that's why I like Kdramas. I can usually find something to suit my mood.

 

And currently I am not inclined to any dramas with serious themes. Or rather weighty messages to convey. 

 

Besides getting a well casted, good directing and well written drama is so rare I am taking it while it is here. I want to smile and squeal. Live vicariously through this delicious romance. The giddy in love or in their case a fair bit of ? lust.

After a whole slew of steady wkend fare like My Golden Life, Misty and Money Flower ...  slice of life but also either quite heavy dark or quite makjang too ... Or the current rather trite and even inane with irritating acting family dramas ... so much unnecc 'noise and screaming'  (Shall We Live Together, Good Witch etc = either from the older generation actors, or the younger generation) and endless 'drama' from the older-generation actors ... I'd much rather settle for what some folks deem "boring, goes nowhere much plot" but what I deem contemporary slice of life relatable. And with a nice touch of nostalgia thrown in too. And the directing, acting and chemistry all come together to be pretty SATISFYING ... the whole package here suffices for me.  (after all those darker dramas = Misty, Money Flower - it's not like I walked away feeling very content that they were very enjoyable rides either in the end, so why bother?)

 

It is NOT exactly all inane fluff here the way some all romance dramas can be ... where while enjoying the romance, you're expected to park the grey matter (or go "Oh REALLY? ) to enjoy the moment.

 

Like that 'skipping' in the cinema scene as she skipped after her popcorn ... this sums up this drama's watching for me.

 

About the only characters who jarr on me are GM (who's the stereotypical goof) and her mom.

And for some reason ... KS (it's either her voice or something - a little brisk, and also bright cheery). She does ACT like an intrusive mom, rather than sister, maybe that's why too.

 

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

 

Though I feel they can lay off the candy pecks and hugs a little. (ep 5-6)

While it's nice to see skinship ... an endless flow of it inside his house ... makes it LESS memorable.

 

Quality vs Quantity.

 

I'd much rather they concentrate  on fewer  but subtle and so effective skinship moments here ... like that Hand Holding moment (my favorite! scene), or little touches like the fact he was lurking below in the carpark outside her house after she crept back home. The introspective quiet moments of his portrait-drawing. Or the funny ... like how she did her reverse parking and pretended she'd just left the house.

 

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

While I like IU (less Lee Sung-Kyung aka The Voice) ... I am staying well away from My Ajjushi. :ph34r:

Heavy enough for me those days was Uee and Lee Seo-jin back then in Marriage Contract, or Scent of a Woman (Lee Dong-wook, Kim Sun-ah). And gone are those early Kdrama days where I actually knowingly chose to bawl my eyes out together with all drama-chingus over MISA (Soh Ji-sub) or Did We Really Love (Bae Yong-jun, Kim Hye-soo).

 

Bailed gradually out of current Shall We Kiss First as well, despite looking forward to Gam Woo-sung (who hardly does dramas).

Hi guys! I'm loving this series, this is the first drama i've swooned over since Just Between Lovers.

OMG remembering the amount of anxiety i have over that drama, hahaha.

Anyway, did anybody have the link to episode 5&6 with english subtitle? Every site i know (kissasian/myasiantv/viewasian) took FOREVER to sub. This is so unusual, usually they took less than a day, but for this drama they haven't even sub the episode 5 yet :(

Welcome aboard and enjoy your first 4 subbed episodes at least.

Most of us actually went WITHOUT any subs at all for 2 wkends, since this drama aired on Easter long wkend.

The subs for 1-2 just came out last wkend, and 3-4 more recently (past few days or so)

 

 

BIG THANKS to live recaps at Bah + Doo Dramamilk site :kiss_wink: ... and to stroppyse and helpful others :kiss_wink: here for almost-instant translations ... there was even a subbing team set up!

Anyways we survived, and filled in the blanks for these past 2 wkends.   Or we went on Mandarin-subbed sites, which didn't seem to be affected by whatever rights.

 

I am on another viewing site, which normally has subs a couple of hours after the Raws come out (normally 1 hr after airing). Even when other sites don't have the Raws up, they normally do, with subs following a couple of hours later. Subs for this are just controlled (Netflix rights) or slow. You're lucky you're watching 1-4 subbed, most of us didn't. :grin:

So glad i'm coming back to this thread, i finally understand all of those raw videos i've watched with the help of amazing subbers here in soompi!

OMG i cant believe you survive those 2 weekends without subtitle, i might turn into miserable women trying to understand what these 2 people talking!!!!!

Can't wait to see you guys speculation about this drama, already feeling so excited!!!

I think all of these encounters heightened his interest in JA. He already knows that she's a good, caring person since he's seen her around a lot as he was growing up.  Now, he realizes how beautiful, cute, and sexy she is. Plus, she's found herself in circumstances where he could step in and provide some help, triggering his protective instincts as well and it also causes JA to be aware of JH as a man rather than her best friend's little brother therefor the equivalent of her little brother.

 

It also is probably a matter of timing. Both JH and JA have had other relationships, but right now, both of them were not in relationships. It's also probably a matter of age. When JH was 20, so just out of school, JA probably looked very old and sophisticated to him, and out of his reach even if he had crushed on her back then. However, now that he's 31, the age difference probably doesn't seem as big to him. Plus, JA is beautiful, cute, and sexy.

 

Initially, I was also wondering if JH had been crushing hard on JA before he went to America, but I'm willing to buy that JH's desire for JA right now really started from the moment when they met up again and his interest has continued to grow in her, just as JA was not aware of JH as a man before, but she is now.

 

The matter of timing :) JA is vulnerable because of her relationship with MG and her career condition, and JH is around, giving her protection. 

I think JH already noticed that JA is beautiful but he never thought anything else as she is anyway his noona before he went to America. 

But because he is interested to see her the first time, and now he realized that she is cute. I remember the umbrella scene, he already plan to take her under one umbrella. Instead of buying 2 umbrellas, he bought only 1 umbrella :wink: 

Age is really the case.. after 30, practically you are in the same age :D It’s somehow after 30, you see people already in the same level. So JH already 31 and JA is only 35. Not a huge age gap. And after 3 years not seeing each other, no wonder there are sparks between them :wink:

Currently rewatching on Netflix with the subs. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m old  :lol: that I have a niggling feeling about a couple of things which I feel are the real problems that the OTP will need to work through . And it’s nothing to do with family / societal objections. Or even age gap. Four years is nothing

1. jA - she’s got a tendency to worry about others more than she worries about herself . So she puts the happiness of others first . It’s a great trait to be considerate but not healthy for this new relationship if she’s constantly worried about what others think. She’s worried about KS ( understandably so)& her family’s reactions- but she’ll have to decide to put her own needs first ( though I know it’s tough given the culture) 

2. JH is swoony & gentlemanly but if you see his jealous response in the early episodes, there’s a level of childishness/ pettiness  to his personality as well. So which makes me question where his maturity level ( has nothing to do with age ) & station in life are compared to JA. 

 

But of course these aren’t deal breakers. I’m still enjoying the sweet romance & all the sneaking around skinship. :D

I guess I had a different read of JH's approach of JA, and it felt organic to me since I don't think it was flippant. He tells her that he happened to notice a pretty woman walking towards him, and he found himself strangely curious about her. However, it didn't hit him until he was passing by her who she was, that she was someone he knew.

 

So, he noticed her, but because he didn't initially recognize her, he was going to pass her by, with just a glance of appreciation. He stops and comes back around because he knows her.

 

When they then go from there to some drinks to catch up on each other, he tells her he hasn't told his sister that he was back yet because he doesn't want her to go all out cooking and making a fuss over him. And, he wouldn't have contacted JA either if he hadn't run into her.

 

From that first re-meeting, JH, being a naturally good person, finds himself a bit intrigued by JA, and he already knows that JA had broken up with GM, having heard about it from KS, so knows that JA is alone again and JH goes into helpful mode. So, when she jokingly complains that she has to work late while he's going off to a club, he comes back to her office to see if he can be of help.  But, he finds her dancing, and she is pretty cute.

 

The next time they run into each other, JA is being manhandled by GM, so JH goes to her rescue, pretending to be her boyfriend.

 

I think all of these encounters heightened his interest in JA. He already knows that she's a good, caring person since he's seen her around a lot as he was growing up.  Now, he realizes how beautiful, cute, and sexy she is. Plus, she's found herself in circumstances where he could step in and provide some help, triggering his protective instincts as well and it also causes JA to be aware of JH as a man rather than her best friend's little brother therefor the equivalent of her little brother.

BEAUTIFUL insightful  explanation and very nicely concluded  :wub:      stroppyse .... MUCH THANKS!     :kiss_wink:

Really enjoyed reading that -  can totally see events unfolding fluidly as you have vividly described in detail,  without pondering further the background history.

 

And as mundaliv has also further supplemented with more insight too:

" after 30, practically you are in the same age :D It’s somehow after 30, you see people already in the same level. So JH already 31 and JA is only 35. Not a huge age gap. And after 3 years not seeing each other, no wonder there are sparks between them :wink:  "     :heart:   => 

 

The TIMING for both of them, was now just right.  (or at least we totally think so! :tongue: they still have an uphill task to convince everyone else around them )

If they didn’t show us those kisses, imagine how many they’ve done so far that they cut out.

 

This is why I can’t be an actress. My eyes meet with someone and I’m already infatuated, imagine being that intimate with many actors and not falling in love. Or falling in love each time, it must be such a hassle. :(
