I haven't logged into this account since Pinocchio. That should tell you how much I'm hooked in this drama.

 

I started the drama without know the ending of the webtoon when I found out about it I made a decision to continue it and hope for a different ending. I literally put my heart at stake cause 99% change it was going to break if Rooda didn't end up with BJS. How she worried about him gave me much hope for my ship to sail but now that she confessed why she cares for him it really gave out no sign of romantic feelings on her part :'(. That made a hole in my ship. I think it will soon sink.

 

I also don't want Rooda with Kang she deserves better. He is a child...as for BJS I am sure he will be happy if ruda is happy. If he doesn't end up with Rooda at the end can the writers hint at a possible relationship at the end with someone. I want him to be happy and build a family.

 

I still have hope for them to end as a couple though cause have you all noticed that Kang and Rooda have not kissed even though they are dating? Either the writer wanted Roodas kiss to be with BJS or he is using it to keep us wondering who she will end up with. Because let's be honest if we saw Rooda kissing Kang it would have ended our hope for her and BSJ in a heart beat.

Well, now I regard Junhoo the villain of the drama. He did everything to separate Ruda and BJS. I don't expect him to be rewarded 

 

He isn't just childish. He hates BJS.  He knew he was in danger and did nothing to help him. Unlike BJS who doesn't hate anyone and sacrificed his job to please Ruda. He even told Junhoo to be kind to her, just to see her smile.

The only true lover here is BJS. His feelings are so deep and strong. I hope we get a good ending. 

 

This is the problem. His love to RD in drama is much more profound & stronger than his Baek counterpart in webtoon. Therefore im board in sinking ship with @angiedramadive hope he still can get with RD. We're all or nothing type hahaha...

Now that I am over the trauma of the episode, instead of heartbroken I am now angry because:

 

1. When Roo Da intervened on the rooftop, the police were already there and about to intervene, so it was pointless. Any sane person would have just stepped back and let the police take care of it

 

2. You could argue that Roo Da wasn't sane in that moment because she was so sick with worry that Jin Sang would die, but why would she put her life at risk for someone that she has repeatedly stated that she has no feelings for? Even if she just thinks of him as a good person, I don't think that she would react that way if it was Ms. Choi or Mr. Park who were in danger. She would have gasped from the sidelines and let the police take care of it.

 

3. Is Jin Sang really not strong enough to fight off an old man without Roo Da's help???

 

4. The show made us think that Roo Da was about to chew out Kang for hating Jin Sang and being petty, but then he very much did not look like someone who just got scolded by his girlfriend in the next scene. Which makes me fear that in that missing scene she just reaffirms her devotion to Kang and her lack of interest in Jin Sang.

 

5. Roo Da's message to Jin Sang makes it very clear that she just does not see him in a romantic light. She has warm feelings for him as a person and that's it. Which makes point #1 even more baffling.

 

I realize that this storyline had to happen in order to follow the general trajectory of the webtoon, but it came about in a very frustrating way. And quite honestly it was unnecessary since Jin Sang has already reached the point of genuine guilt and truly wants to right his wrongs. Webtoon Baek only reached this point because of Roo Da's death. Drama Baek didn't need this. Now, it would have been a different story if this scene had been used to show that Roo Da really does love Baek, but then it's immediately followed by the scene with the voice message. The only good thing to come out of it was a truly wonderful performance from Kang Ji Hwan in that very last scene. I have never so fully felt a character's devastation and sorrow as I did during that scene.

Haha, let’s brace ourselves, chingu! 

 

The ending of webtoon was bc the writer felt sorry for RD if she has to end up with BJS webtoon. But now thing is completely different! We all will feel terrible for JS if he cant end up with her! So dont you ever dare to follow that direction!

 

Writernim, can you hear us? Lol

I thought more about the chapter and I think maybe Roo Da tells Kang that he loves him and that he does not doubt anymore about his relationship with baek ... I say this because Kang does not look sad in the next scene

@gbrd I agree with the majority of your points, although I'm willing to overlook the illogical aspects of the rooftop scene (perhaps due to my opinion that Jin-sang is somebody who isn't physically fit :D, as opposed to Kang Ji-hwan, who is).

This drama just transitioned from office comedy to Greek tragedy within one episode.It saddened me so much to see BJS crying his heart out.Joon Ho is beyond belief.He behaved like a brat and kept crucial info to himself which could have saved LRD if he had disclosed it earlier.Most of the characters are flawed some way or the other.The redeemed BJS is puzzled by the happenings of the past.Its complicated to analyze the role he played in Hyun Jung's condition.One thing is for sure he could have certainly toned down his approach to her.Hyun Jung's father's revenge too is questionable.Everything is a hot mess right now.

 

Yoo shi Baek sides with Joon Ho to remove the sinister president.So the laws of the jungle applies to the company also - "To eat or be eaten".The survival game which all the employees play is close to reality.This drama has shown the other side - the side of surviving and the will to keep going.Some are honest while others use sly methods.In the end surviving is all that matters.

 

So Joon Ho might take care of the company matters and probably BJS will use the time loop to bring back LRD.I wonder how he activates the time loop.The time loop still exists as a mystery and if it happens will LRD remember all the happenings that has occurred. Before her death she saw the other side of Joon Ho.Iam sure she might have come to the realization that Kang Joon Ho is not the man she assumed to be.Even the old BJS would not have stooped low like how Joon Ho did.Joon Ho wished the death of BJS.I don't want LRD to end up with him.

 

Where's the comedy?Sigh...it got lost in the revenge..:unsure:I hope they bring back the comedy mood some how.

 

If LRD ends up with Joon Ho then I seriously want "Feel good to live" with the premise being BJS finding love -a rom com of sorts..:DI just don't want him to be lonely y'all.

 

Again no preview for next week.This is so harsh...Please writer nim give us a good ending.

Based on lip reading, what Jin-sang told Hyun-jung before she quit her job was "It would be better for the world if you died" or something of the sort. It certainly contains the words "you" and "die" in it. 

 

Words kill. That's a poignant lesson that I learn from this drama. 

---------

 

EDIT:

Also, a week ago Roo-da told Jin-sang, when she was choking him after he ruined her date(s) with Joon-ho:

 

내가 죽을 때까지, 죽지 마!

(Until I die first, don't die!)

 

Her words came true, horrifyingly.

I've never been so heartbroken to see BJS cry like that outside the operating room. I felt a sharp pain in my heart right after and just started bawling like a baby (partially because there's no next episode...) I sincerely hope JH suffers for the rest of his life knowing that he played a part in RD's (temporary) death.

 

The realness of the entire drama really suck me right in; the CEO uncle got what he deserved and JH can go away for all I care. I look forward to the JH x RD ship sinking anyway. 

 

I hope that the time loop comes back and loops us into our ship for JS and RD to be together... I NEED THIS SHIP. I melted when he said "I told you not to come to me." Eeeeeekkk. Any thoughts on how the time loop is going to come back? We now know what RD said to JS over the phone but we still don't know what RD said to JH on the roof of the company! I honestly think that RD's death could've been prevented if JH told RD or somebody earlier... Partially JH's fault. :unamused:

I totally agree! JH always said JS was selfish, but he's actually the selfish one and ultimately catches RD to die because of it. 

 

The comedy will likely come back........ There's still many episodes ahead for the comedy! I feel like this was one of those episodes that HAD to happen for the story to continue. 

 

The episode is totally reflective of office life though. You have to eat or be eaten.

 

They'll likely post the preview on Monday or Tuesday. Grr! I just hope my ship sails haha!

The only good thing to come out of it was a truly wonderful performance from Kang Ji Hwan in that very last scene. I have never so fully felt a character's devastation and sorrow as I did during that scene.

I haven't gotten past the point of trauma and devastation yet (will probably get through it once I drown in sleep for 10 hours) BUT great points. During the scene, I kept thinking: "but the police are right there! What are you doing?!" And the next thing I knew was Roo-da was already pushed over the banister.

 

I agree that Roo-da definitely would have NOT done the same if it was Mr. Park or Ms. Choi or Jung-hwa. I personally thought that the voicemail would end: "and I like you too." Or whatever the heck to make it more logical that she basically saved his life in exchange for her own. If she wasn't thinking of him romantically, there is close to no way that another person would sacrifice themselves like that.

 

We're missing what Roo-da said to Joon-ho on the rooftop, but I don't think it was anything good. Judging from her looks, she was definitely about to reprimand him in some way. She thought of him as a great guy and would never do anything selfish to hurt someone, but Joon-ho basically outright said that he hated Jin-sang and withheld the information so that he'd be punished in some sense. Truly, I think it's the desire to have Roo-da all by himself without the competition.

 

I cried when he cried. I never felt myself to drenched in a scene like this. I've seen enough kdramas to see scenes like those, but not one that made my heart felt pain when he was just sitting outside the operating room and just sobbed. I cannot wait for Wednesday to swing by is all I'm going to say.

Another premonition from Roo-da, from Episodes 17-18, when she confronted Jin-sang after he ruined her dates: 

 

"Do you not care at all about your life?

Is it alright for you to die again and again as if it was nothing?" 

 

If we go by the webtoon,

Spoiler

that's what he will do. His life no longer has meaning, so he clings to that desperate hope of reversing his mistakes. He will kill himself over and over again.

 

until he reaches a time frame where she doesn't save him, and/or where the root of the problem (Hyun-jung's resignation) won't happen.

Funny thing is that if I found a Baek Jin Sang in real life, I’d keep him close to my heart :lol: sad thing is that there’s no such person like Baek Jin Sang :lol:

 

I haven't the seen the latest episodes but I really hope Lee Ruda has told Kang the real truth about her feelings that she’s likes Jin Sang - we can only cross fingers and just hope!

@Lawyerh Also he's more and more careless with his clothing. I mean I know your life is in peril, man, but make an effort to look...put together, you know. 

 

Edit

 

Based on making video that @Heidi Seow posted, when they shot this scene

Untitled-3.jpg

 

Baek Jin-hee was really sleepy. She fell asleep, and she needed some time to be fully awake after the director said cut. :sweatingbullets:
