[Drama 2018] Miss Hammurabi, 미스 함무라비

Recommended Posts

I guess for O Reum and Ba Reun love is something they couldn't afford till now. Maybe that's why they came across as awkward during the kiss. I guess Ba Reun didn't see it coming and that's why he was so shocked. It's something new for  both of them. Actually even if it was just a peck from O Reum, don't you think that it was a big step for her? She overcame her fear of getting close to man in that way.  I am really proud of her. And it was so lovely that they started something together in the same place they parted their ways 12 years ago. It was really meaningful. I cried from happines during the scene when O Reum' s mother came back, said her name and hugged her precious daughter fully aware who she is. It was simply beautiful.

Im watching Episode 15 right now and felt so sad that this drama is ending next week :tears: plus all your analysis is making me tear up too :tears: Isn't it so heart fluttering that 12 years ago Judge Im cant do anything much when his first love told him about her bad experience with the piano teacher and she suddenly disappeared and now 12 years after shes gonna disappear from his side again :tears:

 

Dont wanna spoil here but its really an emotional episode where Judge Im opened up so much to Judge Park.

 

I dont think ill be needing a season 2 for this but I am wishing for a good ending. Hope the writer wont make me cry in the end or) else ill sue..(lmao as if I can do that towards a writer whos also a judge :D) but really hoping for a proper and good ending.

Agree that it's a huge step for O Reum to make the move to kiss Ba Reun. I'm glad that she has the courage to love him after her past sexual harassment experience. Ba Reun did not see that kiss coming and I like the gentle way that O Reum approached him, glancing at his lips before closing her eyes to kiss him. That moment is so beautiful.

 

Did I say that I like Ba Reun taking the initiative to hold (grab actually) O Reum's hand? They look so happy holding hands.  :D

 

I've always found their love for each other to be so precious because it started from high school and Ba Reun has treasured his first love till now. He really amazes me with his dedication to the woman he loves. And now their first kiss is at the place where they left each other. It's very meaningful and precious. It's like time stood still for them. I'm glad that Ba Reun finally told O Reum about his family. It's another milestone for them.

 

Im Ba Reun is a character that I'll never forget for his courage to change his thinking, to fight for his woman and to stay true to her for as long as time stood still. And O Reum is the woman who changed him and she's so blessed to be the woman that he loves.

 Han Se Sang...Sung Dong Il  slays it in this episode ...i was so into OR and BR ..but the supporting cast and the Presiding judge deserve almost equal kudos for staying in the rain with the young ones :)    How did that piece of s..* end up as Sr judge and everyone kissing his fat a$$    K drama or not , i really hope that Korea is not like this ..literally killing their young to satisfy  old demented men.

So many stories have not unfolded; since it's based on true story I guess it's probably a sad or open ending ...

The writer is good. I have never felt so sorry in my life that decent human beings are losing. They always do in a Kdrama but man this writer is mean... he makes it so realistic. His characters are well fleshed out. It would be worse if he based it on colleagues he knows. I have never felt so sorry for judges in my life. I already respected the ones I know in SK but it seriously sucks if that is their reality.

This is the ultimate romantic drama for our times, when the news is constantly filled with stories of men who abuse women.

 

Park Cha Oh-reum is that woman, who has seen and survived some of the worst that men can dish out -- an abusive father, an abusive teacher, abusive clientele. Her mother and aunties have all experienced beatings and betrayals by men. But instead of being defeated by all of these experiences, Oh-reum decides to become an active force for good. In her armor of high-necked tops, long-skirts and trousers, trench-coats, and flats, Oh -reum is battle-ready. She speaks up in public, and she becomes a judge. 

 

In her search for justice at the courthouse, Oh-reum finds healing. She faces numerous challenges, some of her own making from being an overzealous rookie, and some because of institutional misogyny. But she doesn't have to face these alone, because she has the backing of Senior Judge Han Se-sang and Right Associate Judge Im Ba-reun.

 

Judge Han is the father figure Oh-reum never had. He is gruff and yells a lot, but he gives her opportunity and leeway to explore cases, he mentors her, and he supports her when it most counts in her efforts to tackle sexism and corruption. He also employs strong women as his stenographer, clerk, and court security officer. Of course he does, because he is the father of two teenaged girls who mean the world to him. 

 

Im Ba-Reun is the kind of man who can win a wounded woman's heart. It's not because he's perfect. Far from it. It's because he respects himself and he respects women. He is too principled to take a job or marry just for money. He regards his mother as the head of his household -- whatever the official registry says -- because she was the one who took responsibility for their family. He is drawn to Oh-reum's soul, her strength and fragility, not just her outward appearance. He is self-assured enough to challenge his own worldview by thoughtfully considering seriously her diametrically-opposed views. His instinct is always, always to support the women he loves, and Ba-reun loves Oh-reum without expectation, or demand, or reserve. He deserves her trust. As Lee Do-yeon explained, when a woman feels a man is safe, then she is willing to go on an adventure with him.

 

Writer Judge Moon Yoo-seok, director  Kwak Jung-hwan, and the production team deserve tremendous credit for bringing to life this story, with its rich and complex themes, and its deep romance.

 

The actors, too, deserve praise for choosing this project. Go Ara, Sung Dong-il, and Kim Myung-soo, in particular, are attractive, popular entertainers with significant fan bases. The ideas they sponsor -- even through the dialogue of fictional characters -- can have far-reaching effects. Ba-reun was moved to action when he saw young men at a club about to take advantage of a woman they got extremely drunk. He confronted them: What kind of a man "does things on his own to someone else's body"? What kind of a man enjoys an encounter with a stranger who has not consented?

 

May every Inspirit be influenced by Ba-reun's words and example. And may every Oh-reum who watches this show smile like crazy with the hope that somewhere out there, maybe sitting just to her left, is her own Ba-reun.

It would be interesting if during the hearing, the past finally caught the presiding judge Sung Gong Choong. So far, he had been protected by the principal manager: not only for the miscarriage but also for the plagiarism. But at the end of the episode 15, SGC revealed his true personality: his arrogance and his ruthlessness.  I was glad that Han Se Sang got really mad and spoke his mind in front of the manager principal. HSS even has no idea that SGC stole IBR's idea. I guess, it would be great if all the judges turned their back on SGC at the end who thought that once has climbed up a little higher, he will be invincible. In the past, he used the support from the other presiding judges in order to outcast OR, yet I have the impression that they could realize that SGC used them for his own benefit and he in reality betrayed them. 

 

Finally, OR knows IBR's past and childhood and her reaction didn't surprise me at all. She finally realizes that she had been mistaken all along. Seeing IBR playing the song she played made her realize that IBR has loved her for so long. In my opinion, there is a reason why OR could never fall in love with MYJ. She said that she hated power and she wanted to become a judge in order to get power and protect herself. Since she saw her powerful father beating her mother, she connected power with men. Deep down, she knew that MYJ was powerful, she feared him instinctively and she was right. Married to him, she would have become dependent of his will and opinion. He was displeased with the judgement, he decided to "punish" her. In the end, he was not different from her father. He abused his position. However, little by little OR was able to distinguish that power is not always linked to men through IBR. The more she was harrassed, the more upset IBR got. She could witness that IBR felt powerless to protect. IBR's tour even reveals her that she had been mistaken all along. IBR came from a rather poor environment and he was not different from her in the end: his education was just a way to become powerful too (materialistic speaking).

Even though I watched ep 15 already, I'm still so much into ep 14. It's so touching and emotional. I cried from the beginning till the end, even in the scene where the Chief PJ talks with BW"s PJ, he looks at the window with very sad face and he says that it's not easy.

I don't like the scene where BR kneels down in front of that CEO. If it's just to show how much BR's love to OR, it's unnecessary at all. If there's other meanings here that the last ep will mention, I'll wait to see. Despite that, I like the last words BR says to him: one day, he will have to kneel down before the laws. Sharp words, I think. 

Ep 15 gives us some rays of hope. Loves, laughter, beautiful moments, beautiful talks, even the background music and landscape, ... make me cry and smile at the same time. I don't care about the kiss (or something you can call that is a kiss hahaha) even though I'm the one who hunger romance most among all my chingus here :) . I prefer the scene where they eat ice cream, when he says she can eat as many as she can if that makes her smile; the scene where he takes her hand; the scene where Gaon gives her a rose and he's jealous; and every stares and glance they save for each other. It's so sweet and meaningful. 

OK now, here is my wild imagination. In the last episode, we will see our great girl fighting for her upright belief. And I think, along with the help from BR, BW and others, she will win and stay at the court. And the last scene, we can see our lovely birds standing in front of the Court, and because they're too happy of triumph, they will have a deep kiss. Hahaha.

OK, stop dreaming :)

Hope that Ms. H will have the great last ep as they did through 15 ones we have seen :)

This kind of drama just reminds me how I love Jdoramas...the kind of story that hits home and one can relate to in their life. Every episode would at least either make you cry or relate to it in one way or another (like my fave medical drama Code Blue, just to name a few^^). Just like jdramas, this one does not really focus on romance, but it keeps you on your toes on each episode...jdramas sometimes, or most of the time actually, just give subtle hints regarding the romance aspect...or even worse, an open ending. So I think the romance here is just perfect to give it a little spice...knowing they'll end up (perhaps?) together in the end, I love how realistic it is..it's how relationships are supposed to be...about understanding and acceptance. 

 

But of course, I'm also one of the few here who craves more romantic scenes..he he..I hope big TV networks like SBS, KBS or MBC make dramas like this, I think they mostly broadcast romance (fantasy...etc) dramas cause it is more popular to their audience. We need more ones like this that showcases different aspects of life. That's why kudos to cable TV networks like JTBC who does this.

Yes, it feels like those specialist Jdoramas. Big on details and subtle on romance. 

 

BR's wide-eyed reaction to OR's surprise kiss is so natural, it's even better than most kdrama wide-eyed kisses.

Pics and BTS of kiss, hand-holding, cycling etc and final words from the cast....

 

final_zps2ldm39zs.jpgIncredibly sweet couple.....out-of-the-world chemistry on and off screen!

 

final2_zpspfrckd2f.jpg

Sparks fly everywhere just by being together

 

final3_zps1jioykul.jpg

Cute, huggable, relatable, playful, talented and fun-loving Kim Myung Soo and Go Ara. Awesome couple.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

It looks like Bareum couple aka #laracouple had a lot of fun cycling, playing soccer and ..... simply having fun filming Miss Hammurabi!

So glad that the drama is enjoyable and so meaningful and best part is having Go Ara, Kim Myung Soo and Sung Dong-il as its main cast. I thoroughly enjoyed their awesome chemistry on and off screen! Lots of pointers to take away...

 

By the way, I laughed so hard at Ara's soccer skill at 1:31 when our 2 judges are having so much fun! I'm so amazed by this beautiful actress. Not only is she talented in singing, dancing, acting, playing the piano, having high EQ and bubbly, reaching out to the poor and disabled children overseas....she can even play soccer with her right-seat judge companion....:D

Kim Myung Soo is of course amazing with his acting skill in this drama. This is clearly his best performance as the reticent judge who stays loyal to his first love.  Im Ba Reun and Park Cha O Reum will remain a beautiful memory of a judge couple who brought life to Miss Hammurabi!

 

 

Enjoy the final episode tonight!  :)

Whaaaa  destiny perhaps? ;)

 

Yes, it looks like they are all destined to be brought together under one roof!  :)

 

I love the beautiful flashbacks and how they relate to Court 44....Judge Han giving both judges a piece of his mind from as far back as they were students; Im Ba Reun fighting for his beloved woman as always from a student to a judge and Park Cha O Reum standing up for justice even over a seat. These 3 are so different yet drawn together by destiny to be the most powerful and most dangerous persons in court. Their journey together has been very challenging but they learn to change their views to reach the middle ground.

 

Awesome. Drama and cast. All awesome! Sung Dong-il, Kim Myung Soo and Go Ara- kudos to their awesome acting! They draw us in episode after episode.....I don't want it to end....lol.

 

I'll miss the camaraderie and arguments between Ba Reun and O Reum and the deep love from Ba Reun to O Reum. I'll miss the butterfly emotions flashed in a light kiss and holding hand in ep 15 between O Reum to Ba Reun....but I enjoyed the beauty of the subtle love and growth journey of our beloved BaReum couple. Not to mention I love their bts interactions to boot. The romance may be so minimal yet L and Ara are able to exude brilliant chemistry just by their interactions on and off screen.

 

 Sure, we'll take away learning points from the court cases and subway actions....I'll definitely take away how a handsome, young, smart and reticent judge Im Ba Reun protects and loves the woman in his life too. She's so precious to him. He's truly a great man and to be his woman....Yya! Park Cha O Reum! You are so blessed!    :D
