[Drama 2019] Romance Is A Supplement, 로맨스는 별책부록

Recommended Posts

I cannot be more in love with this show! Just finished watching this past weekend's installments, and I already have so many favourite moments.

 

Sharing @lynne22's sentiments, while I know Kang Dani has had a difficult marriage, my heart is melting and weeping for our dear Cha Eunho instead who seems to have that creative personality -- a sensitive soul that he tries to mask with a tough exterior, probably because the Noona he so looks up to has a bright and optimistic nature and he might well be unwilling to put a damper to that inherently happy personality.

 

More flashbacks and comfortable talk of shared histories give us a clearer understanding of the relationship between Dani and Eunho through his eyes. He's very much enamoured of her, the older sister who has always sought in her own ways to protect and care for him, offering to "educate" him on the ways of the world (though he clearly knew more about drinking that she did), getting her family to help him regain his inheritance after his mother's passing, and spending whatever little she had on him because it made her happy to do so. Likewise, he in his own way does whatever he can for her, having earlier bought her new clothes (and pretending to be disinterested in the process), asking tenants at his spare apartment to move out for her sake and remodelling an entire room for her. I do wonder if her marriage in part broke down because Hongmin felt threatened by and jealous of Eunho all these years - the younger non-blood related brother who was more able to provide for Dani than he. 

 

Eunho clearly is in love with Dani, but at this point, I doubt Dani even realises that Eunho has grown up and is very much an eligible suitor. She mothers him, reminding him of the "lights" and "slippers", and how quickly he responds to her instructions! She jokes openly with him about sex and is absolutely comfortable with him -- which he likes, though it embarrasses him at times, but he wants exactly to be that one person in her life who knows her best. He wants to be that one person who will be enough for her. Alas, she still does not think of him as being the one who will complete her. 

 

And the subplot of the mysterious Kang Byeongjun. Definitely got my interest piqued. Who is he and why is Eunho willing to go through the burden of keeping his whereabouts a secret? Any relation to Kang Dani? If he is Dani's late father, then this "signing off rights" over to Gyeoroo must have happened a long time ago because we know that Dani's father passed on not long before her marriage to Dongmin, and her daughter is now 11. So that would have at least been 12 years ago now when Eunho was only 20 and just came of age. He was only discovered by Kim Jaemin (love him, by the way! He's eccentric! I like!) in his varsity days. Does the Math add up? On top of that, Dani seems unaware of this. Well... 

 

While I'm totally on this ride because of Lee Jongsuk, and his chemistry with Lee Nayoung is on point perfect (as it always is with whoever his co-star is), I am waiting to see if Kang Dani's character could be fleshed out a bit more. At this point, there aren't many curiosities left to uncover in her - she's quite an open book (all pun intended) and there seems very little left to her except the awakening of her inner likes for Eunho. Everything about the character seems typical - typical housewife whose life turned into a wreck thanks to a worthless, cheating husband that left her penniless and needing to raise their child as a single mother. Is that all there is to tell of middle-aged Korean women? I guess not, considering this is a straightforward rom-com. But what would make her even entertain thoughts of Eunho being more than a kid brother? I'd be disappointed if she would entertain thoughts of Ji Seojoon before even feeling conflicted about Eunho.

Lee Jong Suk And Lee Na Young Gaze Romantically At Each Other In âRomance Is A Bonus Bookâ

 

Lee Jong Suk And Lee Na Young Gaze Romantically At Each Other In “Romance Is A Bonus Book”

Feb 3, 2019
by sala12

“Romance is a Bonus Book” has released new stills of Le Na Young and Lee Jong Suk!

tvN’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Romance is a Bonus Book” is a romantic comedy about Kang Dan Yi (played by Lee Na Young), an unemployed woman who ends up working as a temporary employee at a publishing company, and Cha Eun Ho (played by Lee Jong Suk), the publishing company’s editor-in-chief.

Spoiler

In the last episode, Kang Dan Yi and Cha Eun Ho decided to temporarily live together, and the episode showed Kang Dan Yi adjusting to her new job at the publishing company. The viewers sympathized with Kang Dan Yi who worked endlessly to get her job done. Unfortunately, she got her work stolen by Go Yoo Sun (played by Kim Yoo Mi) at the end. However, Kang Dan Yi was happy to simply hear her name being called at work.

Meanwhile, Cha Eun Ho did his best to help and support Kang Dan Yi when he could without going too far. At the end of the episode, Cha Eun Ho finally revealed his long time feelings for Kang Dan Yi. Cha Eun Ho, who has a habit of going to Kang Dan Yi’s old house when he’s drunk, ended up hugging Kang Dan Yi who was waiting for him at his house.

The released stills show the heart-fluttering romantic chemistry between Cha Eun Ho and Kang Dan Yi. Sitting together under the moonlight, viewers can easily see Cha Eun Ho and Kang Dan Yi’s warm and caring feelings for each other. Even while looking in the same direction, they can’t help but keep turning around to look at each other; the two are closer to each other than with anyone else. Cha Eun Ho, who has looked out from Kang Dan Yi from afar until now, is slowly starting to show his growing feelings with his sweet gaze. Viewers are curious to find out if their romance will come to shine as brightly as the blazing street lights.

In the upcoming episode, Kang Dan Yi and Cha Eun Ho are expected to make hearts flutter with scenes from their everyday lives. Song Hye Rin (played by Jung Yoo Jin), who only has eyes for Cha Eun Ho, and Ji Seo Joon (played by Wi Ha Joon), who is a strange but sweet guy, will make an appearance, shaking things up and adding tension to the romance. The office comedy is expected to continue at the publishing company where not a single day goes by in peace.

The production team of “Romance is a Bonus Book” shared, “Kang Dan Yi and Cha Eun Ho, who have kept a distance from each other, are slowly starting to realize their feelings. The process in which the two fall in love will be unlike any other romance with its deep emotions and relatability.”

“Romance is a Bonus Book” airs every Saturday and Sunday at 9 p.m. KST.

I am loving how with each episode this drama is getting sweeter & different than usual romantic dramas specially the fact that “main lead” is a long term silent lover, generally in Kdramas, second lead is long time lover & main lead comes & wooes over the girl…The role reversal is the charm….Its beautiful when on many occasions EunHo looks at DanYi, with so much love…its adorable…Sometimes I wonder, why DanYi didn’t catch that look in his eyes…
1O9jtpj.jpg
DanYi giving drinking lessons to EunHo was hilarious…she herself was getting confused…but for sure, EunHo enjoyed the class…& drinking glasses over glasses…but DanYi got drunk more than him…
So love the banter of EunHo-DanYi, specially love the scenes where DanYi casually talks about “hot stuff” & EunHo gets all red embarrassed….even when she told him “she had ramyeon with friend”….

Glad to see DanYi settling well at workplace, if she getting to face tough times, she has earned support for her as well…& how she dealt with the lady who stole her blurb….Mr Kim, is a gem of person…I like how he is a cheerful & happy character …he really adores the work he does & treasures EunHo from very beginning…& completely agree with him LJS does have a face you can never get tired of…

The subtle touch of mystery  as a subplot abt missing writer adds on to the interest in the story…makes us curious, Who he is, what exactly happened to him…& how important he is for EunHo, that he is willing  to carry on his burden of keeping everything a secret, whatever he knows….but more than anything its intriguing how Mr Umbrella related to it , wud be interesting to find out…I really wonder, if Mr designer himself locked the missing writer behind that digital lock door…considering he was repeatedly asking EunHo “if he locked the missing writer”….

For sure this sub plot gonna be a deciding factor & will bring up the twist in EunHo & DanYi lives when they start off the romantic relationship & second lead will use it to the advantage…
No wonder EunHo needs the assurance from DanYi, that he expects trust in him whenever situation arises…

EunHo dealing with DongMin was so required ….He deserved that punches for making it difficult for DanYi…hope ex husband sticks to what he promised about alimony & sending child support…

DanYi & Mr Umbrella, their bond is precious …He is cute & sweet in his gestures & their scenes together do have chemistry…wud have shipped for these two….only if, I wasn’t shipping for EunHo & DanYi, guy has loved DanYi since long…want him to have a happy end to his love story….he looked too adorable twirling around and singing 'Until the end, it's me, until the end, it's me'…
Waiting for the moment DanYi falls for him…& how their romance gonna begin…& hoping even then, DanYi will not stop teasing EunHo,  I so love him watching go all red ...

EH and DI are very cute together, and it's clear that they've been bonding together in an "us against the world" spirit ever since they were children.  And, it's very, very clear that EH is totally and completely in love with DI and has been for a long time.

 

I think what I need soon, though, is some evidence that DI is starting to see EH as not just her little brother, but as a man whom she could be interested in. Because thus far, it's all been one-sided crushing from EH, which makes it really sad to watch actually. Though, it's cute how happy he is that she's moved in with him, albeit temporarily.

 

Plus, I'm actually liking the flirtatious friendship that DI is starting with JS. Plus, I like JS' dog. It's a good thing that I'm on board with EH already and find him completely charming, not to mention his little actions for DI are so touching, even if she's not aware of them, that I won't have SLS. Yet.

 

Still, I'm enjoying the drama so far, but hope that DI will wake up to the fact that EH is a handsome, charming man who cares deeply for her and whom she actually has feelings for soon. :D

When CEH said that he couldn't believe in love because of DI, his words were ambiguous. First, he saw DI marrying a bad man as she thought, she was in love with him. "Love" led her to a disaster and unhappiness. Moreover, due to this, he couldn't love her. Then he witnessed how DI allowed her boyfriend and husband to disregard her which led CEH to the conclusion that love turned people into dummies and people in love might be exploited by the partner. That's why he decided not to show any love at all. One of his ex told him that he couldn't love, she was wrong. It is just that she didn't know that his heart was already taken. CEH already loves DI and has loved her for a long time but he never showed it openly, even to DI. To me, he has been restraining himself for a long time. As for his hoobae and colleague, she just thinks that CEH has never loved anyone hence she thinks, he can not see that she loves him. But she is behaving exactly like CEH... acting like a colleague and friend. She stopped herself from touching his arm hence it is definitely not obvious that she likes him. Moreover, she keeps pushing her mother away, while the latter is trying desperately to woo CEH as her future son-in-law. Her behavior towards her mother makes the beholder think that she is uncomfortable with her mother's words. Then just like CEH, she runs to him, when she is drunk. No wonder if CEH can not see that she is after him. 

As for the designer, I disliked his behavior towards CEH. Using the offer in order to meet CEH and talking about rumors was rude. He never intended to agree to the job. However, once he sees that DI is a friend of CEH, I believe that he will change his mind.

The writer has decided to wait until Episode #5 to add Subway to the plot. Feels like the type of mistake that a veteran writer shouldn't be making.

Happy to see this thread is getting more and more crowded filled with many love thoughts for this drama! Made me feel i'm not alone with all of these mushy feeling after watching all the episodes. :wub:

 

I really really love the plot in this drama, very promising! hoping the story development will go even better in the latter episodes. Im rooting for the main leads!! So curious to see EH reaction when he knows about SJ and DI 'casual' relationship :P

 

anyone knows about the rating for this drama? Just curious..

Really love the character of DI.  And, Lee Na Young is playing the character beautifully.  It's so nice to see her in a drama, after such a long time. She is absolutely luminous on screen.    Hee, hee, if I was married to Won Bin, I 'd be luminous, too. :D

 

The story  is a nice change from all the makjang-ness that is currently televising.  I hope the story doesn't stray too far from being a rom-com.

 

And, I love how the publishing house was filmed at Forest of Wisdom, in Paju City.  I visited in October and loved the entire area.  I rode the same elevator as in the drama.  I recognized many of the areas in the drama.

 

As for 'shipping', I have nothing against EH.  But, I like Mr Umbrella more with DI.  They seem to be on the same wavelength. 

 

Knowing that Lee  Na Young is a veteran actress, I was curious in the age differences between the members of the triangle.  I was surprised that there is 12 years difference between her and L JS. There is no perceivable age difference in their characters. That is really good acting.
