Final BTS

 

Oh noooo.. does that mean we do not get a special next week? But I sooooo wanted to see more of their NGs and interviews and after dinner party. Sobbbb

The BTS is wayyy too short, so many more scenes for them to reveal what happened behind the scenes :dissapointed_relieved:

Can we have a nomination for Boyfriend of the Year?

OMG.

Hands down it is our Mr.Gong :wub:

No, change that... Boyfriend of the Century :D

 

I don't know why, but I don't feel the need to ship them in shipper's thread. There are many dramas I watched where I am so touched with the OTP and can watch them over again and again and again, but really don't feel any need to ship them. And then there are couples that I really feel like shipping so much... I wonder why that is....

* WJ's reflection on life, getting up instead of staring at the closed door, how opening one small window he didn't know could open became more open doors. Wish I could quote the WHOLE thing. Beautiful.

 

Here you go. It's a rephrase of what's on Page 4 and on the Top post on Page 1, but Yang Se-Jong's beautiful voice and enunciation in Korean is just absolutely perfect!

It's worthy of being read again and again, so....

 

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

(Woo-Jin starts narrating as he stares at Seo-Ri in the window, looking out together)

 

When one door to happiness closes,
Another, different, door to happiness can open, it is said.

Spoiler

 

행복의 문이하나 닫히면
또다른 행복의 문 하나가 열린다고 한다

 

 

(Woo-Jin the bearded...)

 

But many a people
Are busy staring only at the door that is already closed
That they go on living not even aware that there is another door.

Spoiler

 

하지만 많은 사람들이
이미 닫혀버린 문만보느라
또다른 행복의 문이 존제하는지조차 모른체 살아간다

 

 

(Woo-Jin notices plant in the sun, Seo-Ri protects him with red makeup face)

 

It's possible, that another different door of happiness
May not be a particularly special or grandiose thing, we don't know.

Spoiler

 

어쩌면, 또다른 행복의 문이라는건
대단히 특별하거나, 거창한것들이 아닐지도 모른다

 

 

(Woo-Jin & Seo-Ri onion cry and beach scenes)

 

It's possible, that a really small and trifling
Thing that doesn't even seem worthy of consideration
May be the other different door of happiness that is opened for us.

Spoiler

어쩌면, 너무나 작고 사소한
보잘것없어 보이는것들이
우리를향해 열려있는 또다른 행복의 문일지도 모른다

 

(Seo-Ri opens the window above Woo-Jin's room)

 

Not even realizing that it can be opened
That small ceiling window in my room that had always been closed,
After she taught me the know-how of opening it,
Just like how that window became for me another different door of happiness.

Spoiler

열리는줄 조차 몰라
늘 닫혀있던 내방안의 이 작은 천장창이
그녀가 여는법을 가르처준후
내게 또다른 행복의 문이 되어주었던것쳐럼

 

(Seo-Ri waves at Woo-Jin and both run upto the overpass bridge)

 

If only we were to not continue squatting in front of the closed door
Before it becomes too late,
If we would turn to see the different door of happiness wide open for us.

Spoiler

 

닫힌문앞에 계속 주저앉아있지 않는다면
더 늦기전에
활작열려있는 또다른행복의문을 돌아봐준다면

 

 

If we would muster up the courage to walk step by step towards that door once more,
Perhaps that which we had not even had a knowledge of,
Those brilliant happiness(es), can be discovered, you never know....

Spoiler

 

그문을향해 한번더 용기내 뚜벅뚜벅 걸어간다면
어쩌면 또한번 존재하는지조차몰랐던
짱짱한 행복들을 찾아낼수있을지도 모른다

 

 

 

 

(Screen shows Seo-Ri & Woo-Jin wedding photo) :wub:

 

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

 

If you read this over and listen to his words, I realize that ALL the high hopes I had for this drama (after the July 8th announcement and this same thematic wording released by the writer) which made me so happy and excited then, have been completely, utterly and thoroughly fulfilled in hindsight.B) Yes I too got a bit antsy and started doubting and muttering through the middle, but re-reading these words and re-living each and every one of those scenes, you realize what a brilliant piece of work the writer, director, pd have done here.:rolleyes: They saved it, saved it, they waited some more, and although we knew in our head how it's supposed to unfold and were wondering if things would actually happen the way we were hoping - BANG! :w00t: Just like that in Eps 15 & 16, it all just exploded into the most perfect, beautiful and amazing fireworks that spelled it out for us once again this exact message through every little meme and nuanced hint they threw at us everywhere in every episode! :wub:

 

Now it's up to us to go and collect all those treasures glittering all around us, and remind one another of how perfect each of those bits and pieces are! Are we ready?? Hmm?? :sweatingbullets:

* The closing scene--their marriage is obvious (sharing their bed, the rings) but understated, in a way that brings their relationship and love and commitment to the forefront. Their smiles and cute kisses and their waves goodbye...

Loved that understated part - just the right touch for me. This drama is per-er-fect!

Beyond perfect! :phew:

I have actually not watched the subbed yet because I'm so "busy" trying to search for their photos. Yes that's me suffering from "3017 PTSD" (different from Mr Gong okay):P

 

From the raw episode, I'm actually quite disappointed that these few things were not addressed.

 

First, the Polaroid photo, I was so looking forward to see how they let SR see this! Why why why :bawling:

 

Similarly, does SR know the lost boy was Chan and vice versa? Does she know the boy's mom was WJ sis whom she had found familiar? Does Chan knows the boy he saved was related to SR? Ri An and Mr Gong still didnt meet. And like someone pointed out, why is that link between Jennifer and uncle not addressed too. Even in narration she doesn't know it's SR's uncle.

 

I can only attribute ALL these to the show being cut short. BECAUSE judging from the writer's style throwing little details here and there in the first half of the show, she doesn't show these clues and links for nothing. I felt it had to remain unanswered since there really is no time for all these in the last episode. 

 

Only for Jennifer and uncle, I assume then that they wanted to show that he was really a kind man. 

 

Someone pointed out they didn't have time for a proposal scene but I felt they never intended to have one. That proposal turned out to be a funny misunderstanding LOL. That was when the funny comedic parts shown in the first half of the show came back again after continuous episodes of tears and crying sad scenes. 

 

I love the scene where Physiologist teased dorky WJ in front of SR. It's so funny when he stammered!

 

The uncle scene was totally  heartwrenching. To think he couldn't wait to see SR wake up from her coma. It was just so sad. 

 

Edit: I was also disappointed that SR never got to play a duet with the Professor in the end; that was the one thing I feel so bad for her.

My fave scene in the whole probably is SR's scene in episode 1. She was laying in her hospital bed and she was looking at her reflection in the window glass. Her words hits me hard, "What about my 18's? What about my 20?" then her soft whimper. From that scene I've become a fan of the show and SHS. I've always wish that I grow up fast, my mind was set to finish college then find work. So what I did is study and study ( with kdrama in between to fight from depression), I'm still a college student at the age of 22 (current) and I felt like even with all the rush I did in my mind, I don't feel satisfied with what I have. My 18's and 19's they pass by like nothing and I'm not even in coma. When SR, she could be someone great but she was not given a chance to enjoy those precious moments because of an unfortunate accident. But what I applause her for being a strong adult, for growing such a fine lady despite having less experience in life. She has her regret, I have my regrets but SR decided to live in the present and happy. Her growth as well as WJ's growth is so rewarding to see. 

 

In this drama, I learned that even through all the hardship we all been through, living in the moment is whats important. I don't want to have regrets no more. Like Chan, I won't rush things nor feel like I should rush to become an adult. I will have my time, it maybe a slow growing up, but remember to just stay happy and share love and kindness. "DON'T, THINK, PIL!!!!"

And now for the view of the contrarian curmudgeon...

 

I watched the final two episodes when I got home from my overnight trip last night ready for two hours of fun and tear jerking. What I got instead was disappointing in my opinion. When you have to do two time jumps in the final episode to come up with an ending that sort of makes sense, you buggered it up. I feel like we the viewers got robbed of the story the PD was wanting to tell us at the end. I want to see what the PD wanted to tell us not what SBS forced them to tell us. We got robbed of at least two hours if not more of a beautiful story.

 

Thank you SBS for buggering up another one.

Makes me wanna see the BTS of the rooftop kiss, and their wedding pictorial.

I feel like at the beginning of the series, they were willing to give BTS, I remember SBS has uploaded two videos on the same day, but then later, there were less BTS... The wedding scenes should have been shown in the BTS. It's as if they don't even have time to show BTS for this drama... Well

Exactly! As if cutting our drama wasn't enough. They have to deprive us of the bts too. What is that, SBS! :crazy:

 

The latest bts isn't fully scenes of the latest episode too. They still owe us the bts of the last episode!!! I also want to see photos and interviews of the wrap up party!!! Is that too much to ask for?

I watched the subbed episode a while ago but got busy and couldn't share my thoughts with you. And well, I came back here and everything I wanted to share and even more is already mentioned by you. 

 

I just wanted the Polaroid photo to be seen by SR, I guess that's what was missing? From an otherwise perfect, happy, warm ending. 

 

Let's stay here for a long time. Luckily I'm recovering from my withdrawal quicker than I thought, maybe thanks to the ending and BTS :D

Finally watched final episode. so many nice word already said that I totally agree on.  All in all I had found time watching and getting to know all this lovely character. I am happy at least all the important storyline got a nice closer and seeing how far they have come from first episode is heartwarming. Gonna miss this little family :(

I think 3017 accomplished what it set out to do.  It is a story of life's moments--some big, some small--and what we make of them.  It didn't follow the k-drama formula, which seemed upsetting for some viewers, but instead was refreshingly different.  It isn't perfect.  There were some details that fell by the wayside.  (I blame live-shooting more than anything.)  I enjoyed Woo-jin's narration, voicing the show's message for all to hear.

 

A few of my favorite moments:

Love you, Jennifer!

 

@stuartjmz  Oh, to share a little optimism with you.  Kim Tae-rin was not a villain.  :)

Just finished watching both episodes. That was the most perfect ending!:):wub:. I'm so happy after so many tears. (Bear with me this is going to be long)

Going back to episode 15, which I first watched raw - I felt like I really didn't need any subs to feel the emotions of what was going on. And when I watched it with subs, I felt Iike I really didn't miss anything. Now that's good acting!

I teared up when WJ returned to the house with SooRi and all Chan could do is just hug WJ. I just love, love their relationship and their closeness.  When they were younger, you could see the how much WJ cared for his kid nephew (the little Chan that was boo hoo crying just because he wanted a donut :huh:....yah...). WJ such a caring and dutiful uncle. Then their roles took a reversal after the accident, and it seems Chan took over his uncle's role at such a young age watching over him. It's no wonder that Chan has the maturity and and selflessness about him. I was so glad that he still confessed to SooRi because he recognized his need for closure. He handled it more brilliantly than any other kdrama character would have done. So proud of him! He's a keeper for any other woman that catches his eye!

Spoiler

Jennifer- she was such a strong character in this show, so when she cries, I cry....a lot....the ending of episode 15 ...oh my gosh, I couldn't take it seeing her in so much pain:tears:

The Driver - let me just say that I understand their anger towards him, especially after finding out that he was drinking and driving. BUT, I feel for him. And in my mind, I hope that SooRi eventually would come to forgive him, and SOMEBODY would thank him for working hard all those years to pay her hospital bills.  She wouldn't have made it if he hadn't stepped up to do it, because she was on life support when the hospital was talking about not being able to keep her. So I felt that he did right. And then right by turning himself in.  I hope that Jennifer found where she could forgive him as well. 

Spoiler

Now episode 16. SooRi is sooo cute. SHS played her to a T.  That role was perfect for her. I loved her whole letter writing scene (which is something I had feared from the previews), and loved the restaurant scene ha ha. Woo Jin is the perfect boyfriend and gentleman.  And I'm glad they addressed issues that adults talk about, rather than skirting over them. 

I couldn't have asked for a better ending episode! :)

Spoiler

Chingus, always a pleasure reading everyone's posts and thoughts on this thread. Thanks everyone! Catchya on the next thread! :)

Just wanted to add something, couldn't hold it in :lol: I think it's the first time for me to say that but I think I'll be following the writer for the next projects, specially if I happen to like the leads (I'll hope YSJ is one of them). I've been inspired at many moments, be it the whole drama or this last episode. Some small details got me into tears. DS and HB's gift for Jennifer, as an example, was tea, because they saw her once having it. Chan's gift ''look the same but different" and SR getting her gorgeous pair of shoes. And not to overdo it with the gifts, WJ gave her a hug. 

 

If it was another writer, SR would have performed on a big stage, with crowd, wearing a beautiful dress. But no, she is aiming now for a more meaningful and powerful role in life: a music therapist. I remember back when I read about the plot and they mentioned music, I thought of the many films/dramas I've seen before about someone with passion for music and all I can remember they usually tend to have the same storyline, which initially, did not interest me very much.

 

I love the SMALL details that added MUCH to this story. I love how neatly and finely each character was written, I can say that each character is uniquely written that I don't remember seeing any close version on any drama/movie before. Actors should be congratulated as well for contributing to this, each added his/her touch to all those beautiful characters we were watching over the past 2 months.
