Just finished watching ep 3 and 4 :wub:

Loving:

  • the fairy-tale like background music (with violin and all) when they're in the amusement park and the cruise
  • the sound effects!! they make the funny gestures....funnyB)
  • yes..the hardworking cow:lol:
  • PMY's pony tail~~

Funny thing is both sons are extremely tall..they're overtowering their parents:D they must have their grandparents' genes or something or as some people might say..it's the food they're eating~

 

Still haven't read the webtoon yet but from the above article it seems that even the older brother isn't an evil character? Just guessing, maybe in the past, both brothers misunderstood each other or they both really did bad things to each other. Another guess (sorry if it's already mentioned in earlier posts), the older brother did something that caused LYJ to have such nightmare which maybe the older brother wasn't aware happening...the nightmare might have something to do with the ankle's scar..which I guess (the scar) was left by being tied with the cable ties? LOL, please don't laugh at me if my guesses miss the mark for those who already read the webtoon~

It actually makes me pretty pleased that the drama has conflated some things and expanded on others from the webtoon! For one I’m really happy that Ji-ah and Gwi-nam get more

backstory to their characters, since that wasn’t very present in the webtoon. 

 

I also have a whole plot spoiler thing written up so if anybody is interested tell me! Haha

 

Me! I wrote up one too based on the Chinese webtoon translation and pm-ed a few here who asked for it... so I want to know if it is faithful to the Korean. But also just because I want to squee along. 

 

Which brings to mind: I can’t recall who said this but YES I dunno if the original manhwa is censored but the Korean version one I’ve seen is, whereas the Chinese one isn’t! Don’t drool, girls. Haha.

 in the webtoon the book that YJ picked out to read of MS’ shelf was a romance novel, right? In Chinese the lines were um, slightly scintillating (think western romance novels) and YJ was embarrassed. Heehee.

 

Also when she first fell onto him in the webtoon, I think she said “so vice-chairman is also a man too..” as she recalled his broad chest, hee!

 

So far loving all the insights and speculations despite having read the comic! Also I really liked what the author  herself said, to bring perspective. The childhood connection ain’t too bad after all!

it must be amazing that after 9 years they are experiencing these "accidents" of discovery ...i like the transformations that both are experiencing now ...my type of thrill lol ....also after the fight with brother when he went to her place , a first again ..and she walked down the street looking like poetry in motion in his eyes. moooooo

You did not just moo, did you? :lol: 

 

Im really enjoying the “first love” from both sides, usually it’s the guy that’s experienced and it just annoys me, so I’m happy both of them get to start on an equal footing, heehee. Her swishing hair is equivalent to his muscled chest? Omomo. But that’s just me.

Just finished watching episode 4 and oh my gaaaaaaah... I'm thoroughly entertained. I mean, I hope constantly being pulled so you're lying on top of one another happens in real life between us and the guys we're infatuated with

 

Also, what really drew me is the hostile conversation between the brothers. They were talking about what happened in the past and I'm like, "What?! What???? WHAT happened in the past?!?!?" It's effective. I'll keep watching just to know what went down all those years ago.

 

Judging from the comments of those who read the webtoon, the brother is kind of devious but I hope they don't go down that route in the drama. I mean, he's already kind of an richard simmons for saying he'lll forgive YJ although it was YJ who clearly suffered and was traumatized, but I hope they don't make him that evil (cause he's hot hahaha). I hope he has a change of heart and instead helps YJ realize that he's in love with MS and vice versa, as a way for him to make up for what he did to YJ when they were young.

"What's Wrong With Secretary Kim" Park Seo-joon and Park Min-young Become Closer in the Dark

 

 

photo981292.jpg

Park Seo-joon and Park Min-young were stuck in a library black-out on the latest episode of the tvN drama "What's Wrong With Secretary Kim".

 

Kim Mi-so (Park Min-young) turned on her cell phone light for Lee Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) and he was surprised. She laughed saying he was cute when he was surprised and Lee Young-joon said, "That's not cute. That's fatal".

 

They walked around looking for the exit of the library when Lee Young-joon asked Kim Mi-so, "What perfume do you use? I smell citrus". She replied, "I don't use perfume. I like shampoos that are on sale".

 

Lee Young-joon then asked why she walked so fast and she said she was just walking to keep up with him.

Lee Young-joon said, "Why didn't I know this before?" and Kim Mi-so said, "We are realizing more things in the dark".

I love the fact that they are getting closer and closer to each other.

We have so many near-kisses that I am excited for when they do actually kiss! haha :D

from what I know of the novel/webtoon - the brother is not evil, evil like with most typical kdrama. But rather he too has his own scars. He is a little weird, in order to feel less weird he becomes devious and sadly or not, this causes pain towards YJ.

 

I dont think we are going to get the whole typical route of like YJ vs his brother. But clearly there will be some jealously because of the brother and MS for sure.

 

The more I watch the show, and now that I know a lot from the novel - I really do feel and understand YJ's character more. So I am still looking forward to seeing the story unfold before me.

Without spoiling anything I think it’s safe to say that Sung-yeon is a really sad little boy at heart. It doesn’t make what he does/did right, but he’s really pitiful. I remember feeling quite bad for him—and even worse for Young-joon!

Well, the misunderstanding is already visible during the dinner. He was happy, when he got his parents' attention and LYJ was quiet. But then the mother mentioned KMS in front of the brother which annoyed LYJ hence the vice-president started talking about his work because he wanted to avoid that subject. Right now, he is really confused about KMS and his feelings for her. By talking about work, he was able to redirect the conversation. However, the father started praising LYJ for his skills. He even declared that he was smart because of him. He had inherited his good genes. This remark made the hyung feel as if he was not good compared to LYJ. In his mind, LYJ had started talking about work in order to draw the parents' attention to himself, in order to make him feel weak and little. But he is wrong... LYJ had another intention in his mind. It had nothing to do with him. The brother only sees himself as the victim, yet I don't doubt that LYJ was bullied in the past.

The hyung has definitely an inferiority complex. His inferiority complex is visible in another occasion: he doesn't want to be recognized as Morpheus because the moment his face appears, he knows, he will be connected to LYJ and he will be compared again.

 

My problem with the brother is that what he said, when they met after 3 years. He claims that he forgives him. His words are showing that LYJ did something wrong to him, in fact the brother is actually expecting LYJ to feel remorseful and ask for forgiveness. Yet, he remains unclear about the wrongdoing. He blames LYJ for everything.

 

hehe chingu you are here!!

 

giphy.gif

 

I believe all along the brother has always felt inferior to YJ. YJ since young had been smart, and accomplished. My guess is that he was also rather well liked by his parents for sure. As such, the brother has always been jealous that he got his parents/teachers and maybe even friends attention.

As such the brother sought to bully him along with his friends when he was in the same grade as him.

 

Since I dont want to reveal spoilers about the brother and YJ's relationship.

You are right about how the brother has in turn decided to believe that he is indeed the victim not YJ. Perhaps to him, compared to all of YJ's achievements - he well has very much remain in the shadows as such he truly wholeheartedly believes he is the victim.

 

As for what the brother said, I believe YJ knows fully what his brother is blaming him for, but he choose to remain silent on the matter for the peace of the family. It is clear that YJ holds back a lot just to make sure that there is peace in the family overall.

 

I really want to talk about the spoilers but I shall bear with it :tongue: haha!

I'm dying to know her response to this! :love: :scream:  Like is she going to not stop him from starting to love her? Is she going to learn to love him, too?

 

I don't know if these has been thrown out there, yet, but now, I'm curious about his dream now. Since from what KMS stated to her blind date about a kidnap case back in 1994, could it now be LYJ who was kidnapped? Could he be her oppa that she's looking for? I'm starting to feel like it could be LYJ who is KMS's oppa and she was very traumatize that she forgot about him. It's like a closed up memory that she can't get it to reopen. Just a thought to throw out there. :D

Same here, so I shall just focus on....lips hahahahah.

 

Does anyone feel like sometimes the poor kactors’ lips get slathered with too much pink or gloss? I don’t remember any particular, maybe PHS in SWDBS, but it is really distracting and wayyyyy too much. 

 

But because this show loves to give us closeups of our couple, face to face or into the camera... I keep having to stare at PSJ’s lips.... which are um, very becoming lol. Probably builds up the momentum when they FINALLY KISS. Lmao. 

 

Suffice to say I’m very excited. Dumdeedumdeedoooooo.

I haven't seen the fourth episode with subtitles yet and I haven't read the webtoon so this is just a wild speculation.

Spoiler

Maybe KMS followed LYJ when he was kidnapped and so she was kidnapped too? Or maybe she was never kidnapped but got lost in a forest where there were huge spiders when she was following the lady kidnapper who had her Oppa?

 

The latter makes more sense to me because she doesn't seem as scarred as LYJ, who has a phobia to cable ties. Also the flashback showed only LYJ with the kidnapper, KMS was no where around. Besides she asked her sisters if she had been lost somewhere, nothing about being kidnapped.

WSK was originally a web novel and then it became a webtoon. So even though the webtoon is not finish, the novel is.

So there is already an ending :tongue:

 

Haha I didnt read it but my Korean friend who did gave me all the spoilers already. At least the major ones.

All I will say is that MS phobia of spiders and YJ's phobia of cable tires are linked. As to how its link, if you want to know I will tell you more privately (:

For girls who are waiting for a kiss, we probably won't get a kiss this early as according to the webtoon LYJ suffers from trauma which prevents him from going too close to any girl, once he tries to kiss KMS flowing in the momentary emotion but his reflexes suddenly rise up and he pushes her away almost violently.

I got the link to the webtoon and I've been trying to understand the story only through pics since its in Korean, I din't even get the time to watch ep 4 yet.

Even then I don't see it's his brother's fault (not the bullying part it was his fault). It must be soul killing seeing your parents favor your sibling more. I actually felt bad for him at the dinner table, he came back after 3 freaking years and his parents are just braging about how good YJ is. He doesn't feel this way because he wants to, I m sure even he doesn't want to feel inferior. And to be honest YJ words to him how weak and incompetent he is were not soft either (killing someone's confidence, I don't see how this is ok?). Inferiorty complex is just like depression , it is there and you can't do anything about it even if you know there's is something wrong with you. I personally feel bad for him and despise their parents tbh. Keep comparing your kids and destroy their peace of mind. 

 

As for the apology part I don't see the two of them are at fault. SJ thinks he is right hence he is living a miserable life. while YJ thinks he is right. That's why I said they should be locked in a room lol. Still it's just ep 4, alot of secrets will open up. 

Yes, it is painful to watch parents favoring one sibling over another. But my problem is that it is not the case here. It is clear that the parents love both children equally. Once the eldest son called his parents that he was in SK, the parents came back from Jeju immediately. During the dinner, the mother made the mistake to talk about KMS. Her intention was to tell her eldest son that LYJ has had a long and good relationship with someone. His social skills have improved which means that she is definitely seeing LYJ's flaws. She didn't realize that this topic was taboo for LYJ hence he redirected the conversation. Then the father started bragging about LYJ's skills. It was unfortunate to say such a thing but the father had never had the intention to say that LYJ is better than LSY. For the eldest son, it seems that they favor LYJ but it is not the case. Each word and action will be perceived as if they prefer LYJ or as if LYJ gets all the attention. As long as LYJ said nothing, LSY was happy... which is not right either because a family dinner means that all of them have to participate. I agree that the father made a mistake but it has nothing to do with favoritism. In my opinion, since the kidnapping the parents must feel guilty after what LYJ had been put through and have tried to overcompensate the pain. This also would explain why the father decided to make LYJ the Vice-president... to repay for the painful event. LYJ said that he is suffering from something he can't remember which means the kidnapping is taboo. The parents made sure that no one knows about it, yet LYJ is still suffering from the trauma. LSY is unaware of it. 

 

About LYJ's harsh words: it is a normal reaction of someone who is furious and hurt. Let me remind you that before LSY was actually telling him that he could steal KMS from him! LSY knows that LYJ doesn't have many friends or close person which was indicated by the mother during the dinner (see my remark above). We heard from LYJ in the episode 3 that LSY didn't just bully LYJ, he used his friends from the class to bully LYJ. In other words, he isolated his own brother so that he had no friend. When he told LYJ that he could go out with KMS, LYJ saw it like this: " I could go out with her so that I would be able to turn her against you". The brother saw it as a thread: he will use KMS in order to hurt him!! That's why LYJ described his own brother as weak and incompetent: he saw it as a confirmation that LSY still uses others in order to bully and hurt him. 

 

LSY needs to know about the kidnapping in order to understand that he was wrong all along. Moreover, he needs to apologize for the bully in the 4th grad. LYJ had no friends, so when he met KMS and he decided to have her as friend. She was much younger and didn't belong to the same social circle hence he could get a friend without his brother knowing it. But in my opinion, he must have told her his brother's name... which led to his kidnapping.
