In the webtoon

Mr Baek told Kang Mi-ro that Roo-da only loved him (Kang), and he decided not to pursue a relationship with her. 

 

Unless the drama chooses to go down the exact same route as the webtoon, your idea is plausible

Well this sounds so good because it means BJS left the choice for Ruda. It seems Ruda herself is divided between the two men. She could not analyze her feelings toward BJS. Especially in the hospital scene when she hugged him. (This scene is not found in the webtoon).

 

As the webtoon is 60 chapters I couldn't read all of it but from what I read I noticed that Ruda never had any feelings for BJS. In  the drama they have some tender moments together. Do you think the writer will use those feelings as a part in the plot?

Exactly. If it were me, i cant imagine hugging colleague i dont fancy. And the hug she did is the "clinging so close" type of hug. Unless youre in western countries or being with them, where hugging is just as hello or normal courtesy. Then its acceptable in that case. And just additional she didnt even EVER hugged Kang that hard. And she just never hugged him first.

I also almost lost patience to read that troublesome webtoon :D. But recently i re-read it. And for me the most troubling part is when chief travel the loop time alone while trying to save RD. It did sounds very lonely without her as compliance like before. It distressed me so much, compare to his love failure.  

 

So imagine, if they go to this route in drama. It will be double heartache, since i also worry a lot for BJS romance department. Not to mentioned his loneliness. (P.s i love & hate "the eating ginseng alone scene").

Additional i forgot something.

Yes, @jenappelle perhaps we should write a thank you letter to express gratitude and support.

 

 

@nana.yahxd Could you help us compose one in Korean, please? 

 

 

I completely agree. You mentioned earlier about the low ratings, but it's receiving pretty good feedback abroad. It might be a difficult time for the drama since it's fighting against other big name dramas like Encounter and Memories of Alhambra on the other channels.

 

I hope that the cast doesn't let this drag them down. They should know that international fans and domestic fans love their drama! I personally haven't watched one that's made me this happy or intrigued in a really long while! A letter would be amazing to boost morale for the cast! Please update!

@Lawyerh Yes, it upsets me too whenever I read those parts (three times! I must've tortured myself in doing so). He is rejected and that's Roo-da's prerogative. However, the portrayal of his subsequent loneliness lingers with me to this day. 

 

@xprosperity It pains me that the crew posted in their ig that "it annoys them" to live shoot. "D-9 etc etc" But perhaps their welfare is not so good, and, being involved in the day-to-day production, they're not as immersed in the story as we are.

I'd never hug my coworker THAT hard, unless I may either love them romantically, hinting that I love them or I really owe them...

That's quite true. If I were in their shoe, I'd be quite tired too. And plus, we're on the receiving end so we don't know the script bit for them, it's different. They already know the entire story and how it's going to play out, so of course it's going to annoy them.

@xprosperityYep. I've never even hugged my female coworkers, period. Maybe it's because of our age gap and my introvertedness.

But a male coworker, or superior? Never. 

 

In the webtoon, whenever Roo-da initiates a skinship it's always decidedly unromantic and Mr Baek senses that.

Indeed. I've never hugged a male coworker or initiated any type of skinship in any way... Also likely due to introverted personality, perhaps... :sweatingbullets:  Ahhh, I just hope they're endgame.

Even when my most outgoing female coworker hugs a male one, it is never in a clinging embrace like Roo-da's. One can argue that it's fiction, and a fantasy one at that, but from the social context of Asian corporate culture it doesn't make sense. 

 

If Roo-da actually has feelings for Jin-sang, but she won't pursue a romantic relationship with him out of her reluctance, loyalty to Joon-ho etc etc, that's fine.

 

But if somehow she is portrayed as having no feelings whatsoever for him yet still embraces him that way, for me it's bad writing.

So well said @selenette.

 

The RD 1st hug when BJS realized the time loop is with different ambience. It was more playful and probably because of her outgoing personality, she just want to express happiness. 

 

But the 2nd hug was so charged with a lot of emotional conflict, like very scared of losing someone you loved. Its very weird for mere colleague really. Remember Deputy Park was in troubled with fire in chicken costume. And did she ever hugged him? ^_^ Oh ok hes married, but it should still be the same treatment isnt it? If talking in terms of care to colleague.

Yeah even the poor guy (drama BJS) got pretty confused with that hug and even ask for clarification :lol:

@LawyerhJin-sang's question about Roo-da's embrace makes me happy because she, in turn, questioned herself afterwards. She rarely reflects on her own feelings and emotions. 

 

Screenshot-20181218-112443.jpg

 

As we could see here, after Jin-sang confessed to her, she was dizzy and blown away. 

 

In the webtoon

Spoiler

Mr Baek couldn't confess and in the imagined scenarios of his confession, she was always appalled and unhappy.

Even it’s fiction but compare to other K-dramas and RD’s relationship with her current boyfriend Kang, that hug is still an abnormal skinship B)

 

And i dont think it’s bad writing at all, bc the scene was highlighted in the episode and even the preview. RD also had a follow up thought on why she did that! So it’s the writer intention.

 

In my opinion, writernim did that not only to tease the audience but also to give a chance for BJS and RD. The writer would not change everything about their personalities and interactions if not for them to match better (romantically) with each other. BJS is younger, less annoyed and selfish (or even selfless), deep down is a good and rational person who has strong principles. RD is not a romance seeking type but more striking for equality type, she instinctively care a lot about BJS and is willing to drop everthing to help him. Kang is immature and later selfish (he didnt improve much till now).

 

I do think writernim adores JS a lot (not like the author of webtoon, who favors RD and feels it would be miserable for her to end up with JS) so the end of drama will not be bad for BJS, for sure. I think he will eventually get the happiness, even it’s not with RD. And for me, that’s enough :D

In the new still cuts, i see the well dressed JS is back :wub:

 

Based on the pictures, he’s not a noble idiot at all and i’m so glad for that. BJS is always a man with logic so i guess he will try to temporarily forget the pain and focus on his mission of rescuing RD.

 

Fighting BJS!

 

@Lawyerh haha, i’m the type “all or nothing”, you knew that :lol:

Haha, actually the webtoon author is a man dear. His nickname is Gold Kiwi Bird.

 

And yes, KJH is adored everywhere! Kim Okbin, his co-stars in COALG also said he was lovable and cute :wub:

@angiedramadive Oh so the webtoon artist is a man?? No wonder he unnecessarily puts an emphasis on Roo-da's breasts. :o

 

Edit: Exhibit A: "What is this woman with big breasts is thinking?" 

 

I mean c'mon. 

 

 

The protracted punishments of Mr Baek's, inadvertently reveal the artist's  own insecurities and prejudice against old men. 

 

Oh my I've just turned on my scathing critic mode.
