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. :(

I agree with you! But there's a chance that those kisses will be shown in upcoming flashbacks maybe! The plot is simply and we'll have bad moments as well. But i think there'll be an happy ending... this is a pure love story, not much complicated.

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

Does netflix have a better subs or just the same as other sites? 

About JH's childishness, I think he's quite mature. It's just that he can't control his emotions when it comes to JA who I think is his long time/childhood crush :)

Does somebody knows the name of the song playing in ep. 3 during the club scene? A guy (I think) sings it. When JH dances briefly with Seyoung and then goes up at the stairs (right before they cut to JA and Mingyu arguing in the street) I really like that song :heart:

Not sure if Netflix is better than the others as prior to this no one else was subbing except for those fan subbed from Bahasa Indonesia into English ( these had some inaccuracies though still grateful for them).  Later we had a team here that did some subs - they were probably the most accurate. @stroppyse‘s is the best! 

 

Yes he’s generally level headed . What i mean is whether he would be on the same level of maturity as JA. Wanting the same things as she does.

hello to all!

wow! and i really mean ..wow!! the kisses and pecks where just so cute!! hahaha! honestly i was a little shy looking at the scenes where they were really into each other ... i guess someone said here that it was like an invasion of their privacy!! hahahaha! i was shy yet still continued to watch because i just love to see them so happy! the skinship  was necessary ... though others have written that there were just too much of it ... but i guess the writer was just being true to form ... since it is real that new lovers just can't get enough of each others presence and touch!  and i just looooovveee the bed scene! so romantic ... sigh!

 

i was guessing that since we have a surplus of happy ... soon will be the test of their love! i can't help but think that JA will probably be the one to falter first! just my opinion since being the older of the two ... experience sometimes make the older more careful and prone to waver! so hope that JH stays strong for both of them! 

 

totally enjoying every episode!

Two episodes in and I'm still enjoying the show. I don't always know what I think about the PD's choices of what he includes and what he chooses to leave out but I'm largely fascinated and willing to be led. I'm certainly hoping for more than Stand by Your Man and Save the Last Dance in the weeks to come. :tongue:

 

I like JA but she clearly lacks strong boundaries. There are many instances of this in the last two episodes. A case in point. When mother was nagging her about taking things to the next level with GM, I wasn't so much annoyed with mother for being bossy and naggy but with JA for not saying unequivocally that things were over between them. Why didn't she say that he was two-timing her? She let her mother think that they were still an item when she had already told him where to go. And then meeting up with him in spite of the fact that he was the one who dumped him and two-timed her. Why? Is it so important to be nice that she would allow others to talk her into doing things that would only undermine her position and integrity? She allows herself to be taken advantage of by others.

 

I can see that she's competent. At the workplace, she's built a reputation for herself. Some would even say she's indispensable. So why does she take the fall for something she hasn't done? It feels like a case of indentured servitude. Even the CEO knows that something's fishy. And there are indications of sexual harassment in the workplace too. Not just of her but her fellow colleagues. I gather workplace bullying is commonplace because the job market is tipped in favour of employers but for someone like JA, with her experience and abilities it's hard to believe that she has to kowtow to her superiors like a Joseon palace maid. With the right backing she could start her own cafe franchise. :D

 

JH/HI is my ray of sunshine. An older KSH. He always seems to pop up at the most opportune moments. When JA is in strife, it's JH to the rescue. :wink: The show doesn't need to do any more to convince me that he's good for her. It's like there's two JAs... the one at Coffee Bay and with her family... and another when she's with him... bantering, telling him off and unconscious flirting. He's someone she can be herself with. There's none of that hapless subservience. What I think the problem will be is if she can stick to her guns when all the objections come hurtling in her direction. She will need to firm up her personal boundaries if she really wants to be with JH. It's obvious that they're both falling for each other.

 

I don't particularly understand SH's objection. A 4 year gaps is scarcely something to have a panic attack over. They're practically of the same generation.

The highest rating was 8,5%!!! And this time, it wasn't a kiss moment but probably one of the most intense minutes of the drama until now. At least, for me (Joon Hee :wub:).

When you just can't get close enough....

 

Although it's the age difference and the reactions of those within their lives around them that are meant to be the focus. Still I think it's those feelings being brought to us by this OTP in so many different ways that expose our hearts and feelings about love as well.  It's the excitement of those raw and fresh emotions that we are able to feel through them and because of them...

 

There is that added playfulness and sneaky yet thrilling feeling in them trying not to be discovered.  That feeling of wanting to be with someone every second of everyday and rushing to them every chance you get. Because like some of the OST words express " I am breathing through your love.  A love we have so true."  That feeling of being completed by someone you least expected that makes everything through them fill your heart and life with something so amazing it's as if everything inside you and around you is brand new...

 

It' them capturing the true beauty in remembering when you loved and were loved so dang much that it made saying goodbye so dang hard...

Trueee, it is really cute and funny. I have watched it for so many times lol but I don't know why I keep laughing and giggling while looking at them they are just smiling and giggling in the snow and probably they are already tired lol but I keep giggling like crazy while watching them. Jung Hae In is quite shy towards Son Ye Jin :wub: it makes him cuter when he smiled shyly towards his pretty noona

@40somethingahjumma I think we’re watching the same show - yes! You have summed up JA - rather the 2 JA’s - in your recent post very well and I agree. I am hopeful that we get to see the real JA as the story unfolds and am confident the writing/ directing team will not let us down. 

 

But then I hear the words to Tammy Wynette’s song “Stand By Your Man” and I realize that it’s been JH “standing by” his woman in the first few episodes. And I’m getting a little worried - is she going to waver later?

Ohhhh #thefeels for this kdrama *sigh* 

 

i haven’t felt like this for a drama in a seriously long time... not since W.. and that was because of jongjoo. 

 

This time, it’s all about the drama - the characters, the writing, directing, musical score, the acting. Gah! Everything! 

 

I’m just so nervous because it’s only episode 6.. there’s a lot more eps to go.. and i think the challenges will be EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. 

 

I’m very curious how the story unfolds and how the writer-nim will develop the characters. 

 

Overall, i loooooveeee this drama! *swoon*

Finally finished Epi 1- 4 and yet to back read everyone's comments and inputs. 

Been waiting to watch this drama because of Son Ye Jin. I've watched most of her dramas and movies since I discovered her in 'The Classic' and the memorable 'A Moment to remember'. My 2 favourite movies which I've re watched many times.

All her previous OTPs are with A listed male stars and they made each OTP so believable as I shipped each of them while I was watching them together. (Yes, I still ship her with them and wish she'll eventually ended up marrying one of them in real life)

Luckily, this time they found a young male lead who deserved this HUGE honour to be her OTP. I'd seen JHI in smaller roles but the role that truly impressed me the most was  when I noticed him in 'Prison Playbook'

(So glad, they didn't try to get an idol actor to take up this role). 

Watching from Episode 1, one can see how much this OTP are becoming everyone's favorite as their acting chemistry are truly outstanding. I love this Director's previous works too. With such an amazing team and casts, this drama is brightening up my weekends again.

Will wait for proper subs before peeping at the comments here.

Liên quan đến JH yêu JA, thực sự được thể hiện trong tập 6. Vâng, đó là sự khởi đầu khi JH nhìn thấy JA trên đường phố. Anh ấy nhìn thấy cô ấy như một người phụ nữ quyến rũ và nhận ra đó là JA. Tôi đoán đây đã là nền tảng của anh ta bắt đầu có quan tâm đến noona anh biết. Trong khi tôi có lý thuyết rằng đàn ông thường yêu phụ nữ chỉ như thế. Không cần những lý do cụ thể, không cần lý do hợp lý, đó chỉ là người phụ nữ mà anh ta yêu. 

Hi all, happy to join in favourite topic!

JH, KS & JA have been together 20ys. He even loved her for a long time, even when he was a boy on back's noona. Maybe he is not completely aware, ep1 "Even if it makes me miserable, until now, Yoon Jin Ah is still the best". JH's love grows from time to time, according to his adulthood, a deep affection, not only 1 or 2 months after he returned from oversea.

This drama is indeed different from other K dramas that I've watched so far. No cheesy, unbelievable or over the top storyline. 

 Though the pace is slow, but I enjoyed it a lot. I love the mood that the director is bringing us into.

But this is a melodrama, so does that mean it'll not have a happy ending?

I dont mind the challenges that JA & JH will face along the episodes, but please please don't make it a sad ending! 

They started off so fast and it's just episode 6 now. I just don't want both of them not being together in the end. 

I dont want them to be separated just because of objections from the parents, sister and other people's perception. And both ended up not being together or.. JA ended up marrying someone she doesn't love & that guy is rich and from a respectable family (just to please her parents) and JH goes back to US or somewhere else cos he's broken hearted :(

Or no typical story like JA or JH discovered she/he has a serious illness and can't live long, etc....

Sigh, I just want a happy ending. As long as both of them are together. Please please....

About JH's childishness, I think he's quite mature. It's just that he can't control his emotions when it comes to JA who I think is his long time/childhood crush :)

 

I'd say he's kinda paradoxical. And Jung Hae-in despite being such a rookie with far less experience,  is holding his own doing a wonderful job at portraying layers of JH (and his nuanced range of expressions/reactions).

 

The person imo who has a good handle on him is JA (even more so than his sister) -  bec he shows her most of his sides;  except for the really private one  (like how embarassed he was when she found his portrait of her. or how over- the-moon puppy dog ecstatic he can be in private over every little thing she says or does - a text for eg). And she almost-always can sense his reactions, or how he will see it/react to it ... I feel she has a good handle on him bec maybe she's older and bec she's always considerate of people and their reactions, to please them. He's also quite open with her in communicating - when they were discussing the male/female actors in the movie, and coaxing more honest communication from her too (lol the red umbrella, and the hand-holding = > RELATIONSHIP? LOL!  = > So we're in a man-woman relationship now? :lol::wub:)

 

JH SEEMS mature (and he is) ... but he also does act like a kid sometimes - be it with his decisions (impulsive statements to quit his job, brag about how indispensable he is at work even as he makes excuses to duck out of meetings, his glee in private lol), among his work buddies, his reactions to JA in private or even with his sister  ...

But maybe that exactly how his character is - he's a MAN but he's also still a BOY in some ways.

 

He's good at MASKING.

Even right from Ep 1 - when he clicked that picture of her, when she was sleeping.

His outgoing 'player' type image and kidding around ...   we can also see in his private moments he shows a more introverted thoughtfully-observant type side who may have been hurt and vulnerable once upon a time.  And when he draws in private - it's quite diff from the 'fooling around' caricature he did of her in public.

His detailed drawing of her REVEALED way more about how much he observed and felt about her.

 

JH has an outward image of confidence projected etc  - but he also has other sides, including a possible dark side.  He just learned to be more protective about showing those other sides.

Finally finished watching last week's eps without the subs and I've noticed two things that made me like this drama even more:

1. They recycle their clothes. I mean, in all the kdramas I've seen the main characters wear different clothes on different days (sometimes even different scenes if it is not a cont., of an another scene). It doesn't matter even if they are dirt poor, they have an endless supply of clothes, even wear designer clothes and carry designer bags. But in this drama, main characters recycle some of their clothes.

2. These scenes. My bf loves to touch my cheek w/his cheek like these and I love it when he does this :). When I saw these quick scenes, they felt so real and relatable.
