[Drama 2018] Happy If You Died/ Feel Good to Die, 죽어도 좋아


Recommended Posts

@Lawyerh But I like Jin-sang's current style more than his previous one. It makes him look more approachable and trendier, like those young bosses of Silicon Valley startups. ;)

Yes I keep wondering why they don't make Roo-da more attentive to Joon-ho's moods. Her webtoon twin is certainly very perceptive about him. 


Regarding Roo-da and Jin-sang (providing that they're the endgame), in my opinion the best way to end this is with hints of a future relationship instead of sudden lovey-dovey scenes that are wedged in the middle and in the finale. 




TRANSLATION OF THE PREVIEW (inaccurate at some points) @nohamahamoud2002


News anchor: So are all the contract workers going to be recruited into permanent positions (?)

Director Kang In-han: Yes it was my call (to change) the contracts

Lee Jung-hwa: Permanent positions?

Choi Min-joo: Daebak!

Director of HR: The fake hero, that one. 

Baek Jin-sang: (I'm) not a hero, just a human being. 

Director of HR:  How dare you said that to me?

Baek Jin-sang: "Dare"?

Head of Security Team: Yes, I will protect you whatever happens. 

Director of HR: Hyun-jung-ssi's father?

Kang Joon-ho: Team jang-nim, is it possible that... you like Roo-da-ssi?

Baek Jin-sang: If I do, what you're gonna do about it? 






P.S. "I'm not a hero just a human being" got me bursting into tears.

Just love all the wise sayings from BJS....

He is a very good person. He just lacks the tact in expressing his opinions. A diamond in the rough... He's saved the employees in that company more than once, although he berates the way they work or their attitude. He is principled and has a righteous outlook for work/responsibilities, which is why he demands the same from others.

He did win lots of awards in the past ;)Hopefully a more harvested year would come to him for this drama too.

I am not sure, I think he won best new male actor twice. But in later years he was nominated only (acc. to wikipedia)


@angiedramadive join us on KJH's thread. We are having fun there

@Lawyerh I'm not sure what the picture is about. The article from News.Chosun that accompanies it only states that the picture shows them sitting together, but doesn't clarify anything else.

Kang Ji Hwan Somberly Stares Down At Baek Jin Hee In “Feel Good To Die”

Kang Ji Hwan Somberly Stares Down At Baek Jin Hee In “Feel Good To Die”

Dec 12, 2018
by Y. Shin

KBS 2TV’s “Feel Good to Die” has revealed new stills of Kang Ji Hwan and Baek Jin Hee!

“Feel Good to Die” is about a horrible boss Baek Jin Sang (played by Kang Ji Hwan) and his employee Lee Luda (played by Baek Jin Hee) who tries to reform him.

During the previous episode, Baek Jin Sang began to realize his special feelings towards Lee Luda. Furthermore, he also saved Lee Luda from falling into danger after being openly threatened himself by a mysterious character.

In the released stills, Baek Jin Sang and Lee Luda sit side-by-side, the atmosphere quite complex. Lee Luda, who is fast asleep, leans her head against Baek Jin Sang’s shoulder while he stares down at her with nostalgic eyes. His expressions brings forth a heartbreaking mood. Viewers are curious to know the cause behind his painful gaze.


The next episodes of “Feel Good To Die” will air on December 12 at 10 p.m. KST.

My heart is fluttering now. They look cool together  but BJS looks sad. I think it is Kang that is hurt. (If Ruda is worried about Kang, BJS will be heartbroken ).


But it may also be the security guard's daughter. 


The writer will kill me soon. Oh my heart. I don't want Kang to end up with Ruda


But there is an optimistic view. Remember Lovely Horribly?

SJ was hurt. Eulsoon stayed by his side till he recovered then was reunited with Yu Philip at the end.

I find it’s funny that every skinship they had so far were all initiated by RD. The only JS did was the hug at Garibong (when he thought she would love it :sweatingbullets:), yet RD found it awkward and kind of gross, lol 


poor JS, he’s been ‘harassed’ all along but can never get even lol

I think the security guard is trying to push BJS (in the written preview he thought of killing him but was stopped by something ).  The HR manager knows about the security guard too. He is another enemy because of the TV broadcast. He has 4 main enemies now: Kang Junhoo's uncle, Yu Sibaek, the security guard and the HR manager.


Do you think that Ruda was trying to save BJS and Kang interfered to save her but got hurt instead?


Or are they at the hospital because of the security guard's daughter?

the whole list :) 


wait, is the last part confession of love???


preview chingus




진상의 진심 어린 고백이 루다는 당황스럽고, 난데없는 타임루프 이야기에 준호는 마음이 심란하다. 한편, 회사에서 이사회가 소집되고 회장의 해임 논의가 진행되는 가운데, 진상에 대한 충격적인 제보도 동시에 들어오는데..!


google translation

Ji Sang's true confession of truth to Luda is embarrassing, and in the story of Time Loop which does not exist, Junho is disturbed. Meanwhile, as the board of directors convenes and discusses the dismissal of the chairman, a shocking report on the truth comes in at the same time ...!


I don't know Korean like most of the chingus here :( but I used the cc button in youtube and translated the last video :)  (it is not accurate, but it worked :) press (cc) then press "settings" (choose autotranslate, then choose English ) :)  (I attached the photos in another post :) ) 


Ruda says people at the company started to suspect there is something between her and BJS, on TV he says he wanted to do something good for someone he cared for, that person is her :) He calls her Ruda :) . then he says "I like you"

I'm trying, but sorry not all the words in the trailer are familiar to me and the inaccuracies may be too many. 





Director of HR: For a person like him, we have to find out what his fears are. That's why we have to use the outlets.


Head of Security Team: Please leave everything to me, Sir.


Lee Roo-da: Teamjang-nim! Teamjang-nim!


Protesters: BAEK JIN-SANG!!


Baek Jin-sang: After this, no matter what happens, don't deter me. 


Director Kang In-han: Please pay attention to what (I'm) show(ing) you, everyone. (These are photos of) my hyung, Kang Myung-han.(?) 


Old CEO: Damn you!


Director Kang In-han: (To Kang Joon-ho): That's your dad, you know.


Kang Joon-ho: Stay beside me, Rooda-ssi. Don't go anywhere.


Lee Roo-da: Wait, Joon-ho-ssi. There's something I want to say to you. 


Baek Jin-sang: Don't come to me. 







P.S. I cried again. Jin-sang's love can be so selfless. :( 나한테  오지 마 니까.
