[Drama 2018] The Third Charm, 제3의 매력

Recommended Posts

Last thing is that I am now a bit wary. I enjoyed the story so far, just as it was. I know some people had problems with the whole show because it didn't follow the traditional rom-com plot, with the lead female dumping the lead male on two separate occasions. But I thought it was realistic, refreshing, and I trusted that there was a grand plan, that the entire plot was thought-out, and they're exploring more than the typical "happy ever after" story arc. And that was why I felt invested.

 

But now they throw a dead child into the mix? (Which, I should note, no one is totally sure about, yet.) Burying your child is easily the most painful thing anyone can go through, something you never really recover from. Every other emotion they have on this show is dwarfed by this tragedy.

Thank you for saying this , because I share your sentiment. I like how realistic this drama is in a sense that we not only saw  how a couple Falls In Love which is the usual end game for most k romances , but we got to be part of their ups & downs. I was ok about them moving on with the second leads; it was to be expected. I’m actually a lil sorry for the 2nd leads. Doc did not need to be divorced twice , girl cop should not settle for a man who’s heart is not quite with her.

 

But I’m hoping the theory about the kid being JY’s is not true. It’s already hard for YJ to overcome this on her own (I’m not sure how one can move on with life after losing a kid . ) They  already have enough emotional baggage between them, they don’t need anymore to create drama tension :astonished:. JY’s heart will be crushed a thousand times if it was his baby . The writer will have to be darn good at giving us strong reasons for them to reunite.

 

Lol! I thought I signed  up for a rom-com :lol:..they forgot  the makjang melodrama tag on wiki .

Hello all,


Just wanted to drop in and say thanks for all your analysis; I enjoy and appreciate all your writing and thoughts on the characters. I love this drama, but (especially after ep 11 and 12), i don't like where the story is heading. I feel that the writers have not been too kind and fair to our female lead, YJ. They show JY's growth and his sacrifices in details, but leave us in the dark about YJ's thoughts, her struggles and pains. Yes - YJ's story might be shown in ep 13. But that's leaving everything too late. We had 12 episodes to get intimate with JY, while YJ is almost always painted in a selfish light. We never really got to know her. At this point in time, I'm inclined to think that the writers' mission is to designate YJ as an icon of misfortunes, what with all the unhappy events in her life. 

 

My other grouse. Most of the story are told through JY's POV, endearing us to JY (not that it's hard with SKJ in top form, making me love JY to bits). Plus we have a likeable, affable Office Min, who actively pursues and makes the efforts with JY. That's why we've most netizens rooting for JY to just live happily ever after with her. But I still like YJ. As many of you have already mentioned, the death of a child is an experience that most parents can never recover from. I signed up for a light-hearted rom-com, not a dark, depressive melodrama - so please turn the storyline back into how it started, where we started out investing our emotions and rooting for our OTP to be together. 

Peace out. Only wanted to unload how i feel about the drama. xx

Let’s not get too depressed. Let’s continue to share our thoughts and try to enjoy the rest of the drama. And a little sweet BTS from an earlier episode to start off the week. (Apologies if it has already been posted before.)

@sheza @122am @tali58 @thistle @chickfactor @USAFarmgirl @triplem  Ahhhh, wish life and love are easy for our OTP. Like Sung Si Kyung and Lim Han Byul vocalized (in OST 5): :)

 

This kind of love, this kind of happiness, I thought it was easy

But this kind of laughter, this kind of blessing, it can't come easily

 

Spoiler

 

 

Her daughter's death, if is indeed related to a car accident, was not the first tragedy in her life.  Young Jae's parents also passed away from similar cause so I think this has opened up the memories, causing her to relive the pain twofold.  First as a child losing both parents and now, losing her own child.  In either case, Young Jae is left alone to weather on.  How can Joon Young help her out of the dark place that she is in? The scene when she sat in the dark in front of the TV alone is heartbreaking.

As always loved your post and these words are so true.  I'm not going anywhere because this drama no matter the ending although I have my hopes like everyone else has theirs.  Still what's so amazing about this writer is that it makes you realize that great things and loves are made even greater when two people have to struggle in order to appreciate what it is that they have...

 

YJ is in the darkest valley of her life and is struggling to climb out. My heart wants to believe that JY after knowing her for so long picked up on this and thus gave her the warmth of a meal like he received when he too was in a dark valley of his own.  To me he is the one person that can heal her heart.  The one person who fate always reunites her with and the one person who can cover all her scars and doubts with the healing warmth of his love...

:heart:

To be honest, I got a little down...not from watching the drama but from reading all the speculations, perceived storylines and expectations about the show/characters. Thank God for a few kind souls who inject a little realism (irony!) and life into this sweet storyline, even with the heartaches and tears. 

 

I went back to watching the first few episodes again to remind myself how funny,  cringeworthy & super awesome SKJ’S portrayal of Joon Yong was. There are still some hints of his younger nerdy self now but I really give SKJ props for bringing life to this role.

 

I remain empathetic towards Young Jae because there are people like that who go through a lot of emotional hardships, and it’s one thing after another. And these people hardened their hearts and become cynical with people around them. I actually have 1-2 friends like that and there’s not a lot I can do to help their situations. :tears:

 

Perhaps at the end of the day, I do wish for someone like Joon Yong, who had to go through his own discovery journey, dealing with his own insecurities but yet able to love his intended, wholeheartedly and sacrificially, to be the one for Young Jae. And in turn, Young Jae learns that there is hope and love waiting for her after all. 

 

That’s my wishful and sometimes-in-dramas-only part that I hope for this endearing drama. Because in RL, there are competitive people like Soo Hee, there are people who think the couple shouldn’t be together or wished someone better for a guy like Joon Yong...

 

Anyway, 2 more thoughts before I count down to Fri...

 

1. Watching the early episodes made me missed Joon Yong’s police station colleagues so much! They added so much fun to the scenes. Now that he is a chef, and other than the short appearance of his older partner from the police station, I wonder if the writer/PD will bring them back for more scenes...

 

2. Out of curiosity I looked up what is the definition of “third charm” in urban dictionary and this was what it said, “ Someone who has failed at something twice; used as a means for encouragement, expressing hope that things will work out on the third try.” Makes me hopeful for a happy ending.

 

Hwaiting! :wub:

Ditto!  Thanks for this.  The character-hate that has been displayed here has been disheartening.  We don't know the whole story yet, and I think that there are reasons that we don't yet know--this has been the case in this drama in the past.  Things that didn't make sense at first (like the initial break up) had an underlying reason.

 

One of the takeaways from this drama is that we don't always know why someone does what they do, so we have to accept them and care about them until they are strong enough and until they trust us enough to share.

I miss the cops,  too. I thought they were one of the fun part of this drama. I was hoping for little side stories or glimpses into their lives and characters, not just have them serve as background for JY. There was so much potential In them to enrich this drama.

Thanks for posting those photos, @bedifferent !!!

 

My first thought in seeing that photo of Young-Jae with her daughter is... that girl looks BIG.

 

Ri-Won became pregnant right when Joon-Young decided to stay in Portugal. This girl looks MUCH older than Ri-Won's daughter.

 

Even if Young-Jae and Ho-Chul got pregnant right away, or she had Joon-Young's baby - the child would be the same age as Ri-Won's daughter, at most - because some time had already passed since the child's death.

 

(Eh, I don't know. I'm probably trying too hard to deduce clues from one picture.)

Just watched ep 12 and things are becoming clearer.  YJ was surprise JY was in Lisbon so she didn't go there to look for him.  I doubt the child is JY's but if it is, it is really cruel of her not to tell him.  She was wearing her wedding ring in Lisbon so she must have gotten married  by then.  YJ says that JY has always been decisive.  He knew what he wanted.  I thought YJ knew what she wanted the whole time too.  She wanted to be rich and successful but JY just wanted to be with the person he loves.  His wife to be is the same as JY, she just wants to be with the one she loves.

How sad it was that in Portugal, JY found himself but YJ lost herself.   Korea will be a sad reminder for JY and Portugal will be a sad reminder for YJ.

After marriage, JY wants to go back to Portugal.  I think he wants to avoid YJ.  I think he knows he is being swayed and he is staying right away.  JY is really a person of integrity.  He will sympathise with YJ but he will not want to hurt his SE.  I think the airport scene at Portugal says it all.  JY responded to SE because she told the truth.  I think it is time YJ tells the truth.

Ep.13 Video Preview (translated):

 

Doctor (?): Will it be all right for you to hear this directly?

 

Joo-Ran: Is something very wrong with me?

 

(Soo-Jae tries calling Joo-Ran, she doesn't answer.)

 

Se-Eun: Young-Jae Unni must have been so popular. She is the type I was always envious of. She seems so cool.

 

Young-Jae: Unni, I met with Joon-Young.

 

Joon-Young: Se-Eun, after we marry, shall we go live in Lisbon?

 

Se-Eun: I am fine anywhere. As long as I am with you. ... (touching his coat) Are you warm enough?

 

Joon-Young (to Se-Eun): Of course.

 

Joon-Young (to Young-Jae): Dress warmly, and don't skip meals.

 

--

 

Ep.13 Text Preview (translated):

 

옷 따뜻하게 입고, 밥 꼭 챙겨먹고

 

Dress warmly, and don't skip meals.

 

(Yes, this is it!)

 

--

 

So, my thoughts based on the video preview:

 

- As I said before, Se-Eun has a lot in common with Joon-Young during his v.2 relationship with Young-Jae - Se-Eun says the exact same words that he said to Young-Jae - that he can live anywhere as long as he is with her.

 

- The other thing I noticed is that he still had that photo from winning the beer-drinking contest when he had his first date with Young-Jae. After she dumped him, he cut it with scissors, but it turns out he taped that photo back together and kept it.

 

- Joo-Ran is sick! NOOOOO! Ugh.

 

Be VERY afraid whenever a K-drama character goes to a hospital for some non-specified reason.

Beautiful chingu. You just said what I wanted to say but couldn't put into words. JY doesn't want to hurt SE because he was at her place once and also she doesn't lie about her feelings. Even though JY sister said that they don't truly know each other and only showed their good sides to each other, still to me they would work out better in marriage because they are putting their effort to the relationship even though JY is not deeply in love with her as she is to him. As for YJ, I hope by the end she is happy with or without JY. She deserves that after everything that has happened to her.

@chickfactor Ur welcome with the pics.

@USAFarmgirl @sheza @jbying7 @thistle OTP fighting!

 

 

Has anyone seen the movie or read the book Age of Innocence?  There’s a line in it that resonates for me whenever Joon Young looks at Young Jae.  Perfectly describes him.

 

Each time I see you, you happen to me all over again. :)

 

In the story, the OTP remains apart due to circumstances and the male protagonist’s marriage.  In the end, when he is 57 yo, after dutifully fulfilled his role as a father and husband, finally came to her apartment as a widower with his son.  After some thoughts, he sent his son in to meet his love and resigned to standing on the street looking up at her balcony.  Her balcony door opened.  Satisfied, he turned and walked away keeping the memories of them in tact without ever seeing her.^^. 

 

The preview (thanks @chickfactor) gives me the same feelings about Joon Young.  I agree that Joon Young will be compelled to uphold the promise to Se-Eun but I also feel Young Jae will not attempt to sway him by disclosing her problems.  Their actions are more than the usual noble idiocy mentality that we know.  For Young Jae, he is everything that is good, selfless, noble and generous in this world atm.  His loyalty and upright character are what she loves about him so she will never compromise his life at this point.  

 

Their past is locked in his memories, all good and bad.  For someone as selfless as Joon Young, he will be more than content with the taped up picture rather than  hurting others.  :mellow:

Hey, I also cited Newland Archer in Age of Innocence on a different thread! If he abandoned his wife for the Countess, he would no longer be the same man that Countess fell in love with, so by refusing to see her even after his wife died, he is being true to himself.

 

All very well and good, but I really don't want Joon-Young to be Newland Archer. Newland Archer was not happy in his marriage and basically lived his entire life as a socially proper but repressed person. It wasn't a happy ending for him. I feel like Joon-Young should not have to be content with a taped-up picture while living with a wife who he's not passionate about.

 

I felt like the moment of DOOM was when Joon-Young said he will go anywhere with Young-Jae, as long as she was with him. That's not a super-healthy attitude, actually - being too eager to please, willing to compromise your own needs and wants - it's not what you want to hear from your partner.

 

So I feel like Se-Eun saying the exact same words to him might be the moment that Joon-Young realizes that their relationship may not be healthy. She has a job and family in Korea. And she's willing to abandon everything to move to Portugal, where she knows no one, and doesn't speak the language?

 

Basically, Joon-Young was willing to go anywhere as long as he could be with Young-Jae. But he is obviously not willing to do that for Se-Eun. Se-Eun confessed to him at the airport, and they began a relationship but he still stayed in Portugal for 4 more years, not willing to abandon his passions and his dreams for her. When he returned to Korea, it wasn't to be with her, it was because he was simply done with Portugal.

 

Not to mention, Portugal is Joon-Young's place to run away to when he is running from Young-Jae. So he is definitely not over her.

 

None of this is healthy. So I just don't see things ending well between Joon-Young and Se-Eun.

 

--

 

Lastly, after seeing the photo many times of that little girl with Young-Jae, I am convinced that she cannot be Young-Jae's biological daughter. She's just too old, the timeline doesn't fit.

I don't hope that JY will sacrifice the love of his life to keep a promise and live just comfortably.

At this point, I always like YJ and JY with their faults and their qualities, and I would really like for once the reason isn't unaware that the heart also to his reasons!

 

We don't yet know everything about YJ's story, so before throwing a stone at her, I want to wait, I hope she will find a way to open up and I also hope that writers will find a way to recover the pieces between YJ and JY, I can't settle for a comfortable and easy story and that in the end, nobody will be completely happy ...

It leaves me a bitter taste in the throat ...

 

Ps: After watching the first 12 episodes again, I noticed that during the second charm, YJ was doing the same thing as JY, she annotates everything in color (that's when she forgets her book in the subway),  it's subtle of YJ side but I can't doubt the love she has for JY either or the impact he had on her...

Let the third charm act! ^^

@chickfactor @vladlola06 hella yes, YES, Joon Young must do the first selfish thing in his life.  Live for himself!  Please do not be like Archer, the most repressed depressing person who became his own prison guard and settled when was given that chance to get the happiness he dreams of at the end. 

 

Me too, I don’t want Joon Young to settle just cuz it’s easier.

 @bedifferent Loved your post my Chingu:heart: but dang did You have to whip out Age Of Innocence that at one time broke my heart in two:heartbreak::bawling:  Took me weeks to get over that...  Have you no mercy LOL:scream:   It could happen that way between JY & YJ for all things are possible not knowing what direction the writer will go but I am hoping, fingers crossed and toes as well.  That JY will not be forced to break his promise but will have it broken for him.  I truly think a woman would know most of all one that is a police officer who can see clues and feels them as well.  When the man she loves just might not love her as much or isn't fully in love with her.  I'm hoping she won't settle for a life of having to compete with a memory or his longing heart that still hasn't let go...

 

To me The Third Charm the title itself might mean two people whom through time were faced with struggles and yet after breaking each others hearts more than once.  Growing up together in a way and learning while being apart that you can run, deny and even make yourself believe it's over.  That is until fate reminds you with just one look that it isn't and never was...

@bedifferent It would be too heart breaking if this drama ends like this too.  I will probably need to go on extended vacation like JY.

@chickfactor Yes, JY obviously loves YJ a lot more.  His love for her however is not able to make things work.  Unhealthy as it may seem, in a marriage, there has to be a lot of open communication and willing compromise.  And just because you are willing to compromise doesn't have to mean that you are not being authentic.  Ri Won and SH's relationship is a prime example of a relationship complete opposite to what JY and YJ have.  Ri Won is uncompromising and SH also voice his wants and needs but in the battle of will and personalities, he is forced to compromise but is one-sided unwilling compromise.  To me, that's not very healthy either.  Don't get me wrong, I don't think YJ needs to compromise her values just because she loves JY either.  But at least, she needs to come to a point where she can open up to him because a relationship is two-ways, not one sided.  Then they can make a willing compromise.  

Remember how JY was so suffocating in his love for JY?  His insecurities and jealousy bore too much a burden for YJ.  In the same vein, I think YJ is also just as frustrating because she is emotionally unavailable.  It seems to me that in order for JY to love her, he would need to pry open her heart like digging abalone from the crevices of the cliff.

Anyway, I love how the writers wrote about their love affair in seasons.  They had a hot summer affair in the first charm, and just when it was beginning to bloom in the second charm, it was cut short (am I right or did I get the first two season mixed up?).  Now they enter the darkest, coldest season of their lives - winter.  Let's cheer up because spring will come again.  Let's hope uri OTP will learn to water on the right plot!  

Just to add also, I know it is partly for comedic effect and also perhaps the purpose of the story but I didn't like how Ri Won brutally tore SH's self esteem because he was looking every bit a dowdy stay home dad.  And how SY left JR dangling and treated her that way just because she is clinging onto him.
