This drama feels better executed, maybe due to two great actors in the lead roles. The writing gives the drama balance and the story is unfolding at a better pace. Also, all of the roles have been switched. This time, the woman is clearly the power player, the wealthy one, and even though her life is difficult and at times she is miserable, she isn't portrayed as a damsel in distress. SHJ is portraying CSH as being a woman who has had to forego the simplicities of life to make her family happy. She has had to sacrifice and now she is beginning to discover what putting herself first feels like with the help of KJH. His character isn't wrist-grabbing her and forcing kisses on her. He's asking her if they can be in a something relationship until THEY decide that they are in love. This drama is going against the grain in such a way, that it almost feels like a satire. I hope that helps.

 

Where are you now girl? Can I give you a big pat on the back and bear hug? :love:

 

Thank you for answering my question. And yes, I've seen alot of images about Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food.

 

You know what I think? Our OTP being a huge actor/actress is also the reason why most people find it hard to overlook what they know about them and in turn will make them hesitate to watch the drama. Familiar in a way like, we know who PBG and SHK is. We know how old/young they are. We know their friends are and etc.

This might have been overlooked so I am posting it again... Because I'm really curious about what you can say about it:

 

I was just wondering, this is NOT the first Noona series... I haven't watched other k-drama noona series. And I'm really wondering if they are as deep as this one? What made this series different from the others? Apart from our leads being really dashing and gorgeous, of course. Anyone?

I will always love I Hear Your Voice for its heart and its strong voice against revenge. And the leads are both beautiful! The age difference melts away although the absolutely gorgeous Lee Bo-young keeps asking herself "Is it OK to do this?!" to fall in love with dreamy young Lee Jong-suk. Yes, it is!  :wub: Of course since the hero can read people's thoughts, it's not exactly a realistic drama. ☺️ Similar theme to Encounter?  In IHYV the OTP keep rescuing one another: She rescues him, and he rescues her right back, again and again. KJH isn't saving CSH from a vengeful killer, but he rescues her from that terrible public humiliation. And she rescues him from that public attack on him as a stalker and user. I keep happily replaying both those scenes. Very happy CSH finds her courage and gets to be the hero, too.

Kim Jin Hyuk can’t figure out how to tie a tie, but instinctively knows how to style a scarf perfectly on a girl :lol:

 

I admit I only watched this drama because of Park Bo Gum. I have never been too impressed with Song Hye Kyo’s acting (her expression seems more or less the same to me in every drama). But in this show, she is impressing me more than PBG (not that he’s doing a bad job, but she is given more emotional scenes to work with). I love the quiet, dignified strength that she lends her character. 

 

Thought this would be your traditional melodrama, was not expecting the reverse Cinderella plot and the surprisingly strong heroine who is rediscovering her spunk and her backbone.

Wake up in the morning to check the rating,although I'm very well aware it is not out yet, just my habit from watching dramas for so long :sweatingbullets: not really care bout it,but I care bout it too,haha

 

Wow the discussion about the ex hubby still going hot I guess,hmm I can't give very insightful comments like u guys did,but in my humble opinion I see him as pitiful character for now,don't know in the next epi..but I guess maybe,just maybe he will become one of jinsoo couple trouble in the future,that I would like to see what kind of attitude that he will do to our couple (becz this drama afterall,so there must be a lot of complicated problems to give 'spice' in the drama itself)well just random imaginary story from my bed side..

 

Anyway if I've been put at SH shoes,to have JH in my life,I think I will just alope with him (again my wild imagination :P)

 

Thats all guys my hello in the morning..have a good day everyone.:blush:

You should watch the new filipino movie that came out. Girl is 50 yrs old (but she’s a veteran actress and a model) guy is 25 yrs old. :sweat_smile: and it sold!

 

Thank you for all your insights guys. I started watching the drama because it’s SHK. I’m a long time fan of hers. Plus with PBG, nothing could go wrong, I guess.

 

@myneighbortotoro Haha there’s no need for me to convince you then. :D

 

Btw, how many episodes do the last empress have left?

[Boyfriend] Ep 6 spoilers, Park Bo Gum x Song Hye Gyo

Posted on Thursday, December 13, 2018

 

Article: Naver 'Boyfriend' Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Gyo, first day of 'some', "It's already spring for us." 


1. [+1760,-89]
Romantic, straightforward man, Park Bo Gum. My heart flutters so much. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1233,-67]
Park Bo Gum's role fits him well. 


3. [+1098,-90]
Song Hye Gyo is really beautiful.. 


4. [+763,-21]
I like it even if it's just a 'some' relationship^^ They are both smiling happily after all. 


5. [+616,-30]
Park Bo Gum is so handsome. 


6. [+240,-7]
Park Bo Gum makes my heart flutters. He put on gloves for her. I like that they are having a 'some'. 


7. [+205,-3]
It's so beautiful whenever Song Hye Gyo and Park Bo Gum appear on the screen alone. Pretty, pretty. 


8. [+190,-5]
They might be on a 'some' relationship, but they are already in love with each other. Jin Hyuk and Soo Hyun, only the two of them do not know about that. 


9. [+135,-2]
Putting on gloves for her, sending texts, buying ties, that's dating. I wonder how her secretary will get together with Golbaeng ahjussi. 


10. [+138,-12]
To be honest, it's fun. It's obvious that these people are leaving negative comments without watching it every time. They said they are not watching it, but they post negative comments all over. Why are they doing this? (I was rather amused with this one.)

Article: Naver 'Boyfriend' Song Hye Gyo's surprising statement at the press conference, "I'm having a 'some' relationship with Park Bo Gum 

1. [+1600,-32]
My heart broke during that scene with Park Bo Gum. ㅠㅠ "For how long did she live enduring those harsh words?" ㅠㅠ 


2. [+1264,-13]
Park Bo Gum nodded and smiled, letting her know that it's fine at the end. My heart broke. Today's episode was so heart fluttering. It's correct, they are on a 'some' relationship. 


3. [+744,-24]
My heart throbbed at, "we're on a 'some' relationship"~~ ♡


4. [+735,-19]
Ah, this is really heart fluttering. The two held hands!!! Spring is here, Jin Hyuk-ah, Soo Hyun-ah. 


5. [+192,-5]
Wow, the ending is daebak. Park Bo Gum smiled and turned around, that left me breathless. 


6. [+181,-3]
It seems like he's trying to say that he's fine with it. Park Bo Gum's eyes are so warm. 


7. [+141,-3]
Wow, what's with the ending from episode 3 onwards? Why are they making my heart flutter and letting go of my heart at the same time? Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Gyo, from their voices to their gazes, are so warm. 


8. [+143,-9]
This is getting more interesting. I like the scriptwriter! Please continue the drama like that~ Don't develop the story poorly. How do I wait till next week? 
(And to think last week they were bashing her. This scriptwirter has redeemed herself as far as dramas are concerned with Boyfriend!)

CSH  get strength the moment KJH stepped out and confessed he is the ramyeon guy. And now, CSH doing the same thing. They protect and  give strength to each other. This is True :heart:.

Encounter teaches us to take courage when it refers to Love. Take command of your own life without other people dictating it.

@dukesa1122 the last empress has 48 episodes. It's not going to end until February. I watched clips on it actually and it seems that the writer of that drama was quite famous to be good. However, that drama was too stressful for me with all the plotting. My own work is already stressful enough...hahaha so I would rather see PBG smiles...

Thank you for the rich discussion in the thread! It speaks so much of the quality of the drama and the excellence of the narrative!

 

I love the moment in the CSH Revelation part (Ending Scene of Ep.6) when Soo Hyun, after being grilled as to what kind of relationship and Jin Huk has, echoed the same question to herself showing how deliberate and free her "We are in 'some' relationship" response was! 

 

While it may look to many as a 'rebuttal' to the accusation that Jin Hyuk is her stalker, to my perception, it was a moment of self-revelation: What Jin Hyuk meant to her and how she was not afraid to broadcast it to the whole world. Moreover, it was her response---a public one at that--- to Jin Hyuk's "What are we?' at the ending of Episode 3.

 

JJang!

 

P.S. When I finish downoading the drama, I will insert that Cha Soo Hyun moment here!

It has been quite a long time since I have posted and actually been engaged so thoroughly to watch a k-drama but I also think this is my first time that my second lead syndrome is at its absolute worst and more interested in WooSeok the character than JinHyuk and i love PBG. 

 

Also, this imo is SHG’s best drama- she really nailed it and i am so pleasantly surprised. She infused this character with alot of grace and also humility. 

 

I find the back story behind SH and WS absolutely fascinating, enthralling, and heart breaking. I agree with what some posters said that there is an utter miscommunication but I am deeply interested in what drove WS to take such drastic (perhaps even lying about the cheating??) measures and always in the background watching SH. If he has been waiting  for her to come back to him, why hasnt he taken a proactive and aggressive approach?? Obviously his mother doesnt have any objections to her as a daughter in law. 

 

Also I dont find the terms of the divorce agreement ridiculous for some reason, there have been real life examples of female celebrities (Go Hyeon Jung) who married into jaebol and as part of the divorce she couldnt see her kids. If anything, the MIL’s condition is quite mild.

@beebeep what the?! 48 episodes... it’s like Meteor Garden then hahaha

 

@bellaangel012 I agree. This is her best performance. She has always been great but  this is the best for me. Maybe because she can totally relate. The limelight? The no comment on negative things people post online about her? She perfected the being passive role to the public in real life just because she had to. 

 

Also, notice when she cries she doesn’t let her tears fall down that easily? She let it stay in her eyes first for the audience to see and then she blinks. That’s her trademark crying style, i think :joy: sorry. You can tell I’m a big fan. :sweat_smile:

 

As for the ratings, I wouldnt let myself be stressed about that anymore. Whats important is the positive feedback and I’m super enjoying this drama. It’s been awhile! :wub:
