Recommended Posts

PREVIEW :love:

 

More GH and Dom scenes - she's trying to cheer him up after VP-GH broke up with him. We also have the flower and sleepover scene in the next episode YES!

 

And DJ asked Dom to find someone for GH and he said NO :joy: jealous...?

And THE KISS :heart:

which is why he thinks he should end it with VP,

I have to correct myself on this. Upon listening again on the preview, he was telling GH that he ended it already with VP. That is why he was sulking and GH trying to cheer him up. So yeah, my theory on him thinking about GH while kissing GHVP is cancelled, okay....

I'm somewhat with you in your first theory, actually. Maybe he felt a bit of guilt after kissing VP because he is confused about his feelings. He doesn't want to fully commit to fake VP if he's thinking about two women. 

 

If I read the recap correctly, DJ is already aware of Gal Hee's secret life (but not just the reason behind it). If that's the case, I am relieved that there's another person Gal Hee can trust. DJ is definitely #TeamGalik

Yeah....that was a good kiss....real good....

 

I'm glad to know he was jealous at the bathhouse about GH being with another guy. I didn't pick up on it w/out subs. 

I think he's going to break up with fake V because of his feelings for GH. 

But we know fake V comes back in the picture because there is a still cut of her with real V wearing the same outfit. I think this photo will be tied to the big reveal somehow. And it will happen publicly. Not looking forward to angst. 

I wish instead Dom would realize the truth and play along to tease her and it be all cutesy and lovey, but we know that's not how these things ever go. 

Anyways I will enjoy the hot kiss for now and look forward to next week's sleepover! But gosh waiting a whole week is going to be so hard!!

 

BTW, I'm sitting here at work and I have Simon, Simon Dominic, Simon D-o-m-i-n-i-c o o o o  o o o stuck in my head! :joy:

GUYS. The reason he was hesitating before kissing her was because he didn't know where her lips were. He can't see her face. That's why it was sweet because she was helping him :wub: (and of course also because she wanted to)

:PBecause I've been rewatching the kiss for so many times, I think you could be right about his hesitation... what she whispered to him could be her guiding him to go lower, and lower... but she got impatient, so she herself went in for the kiss instead... Faster, and before she changed her mind, lol....

Back to rewatching :lol:

Okay this is what I've understand on the raw but first lemme talk about the kiss. It was bittersweet, DMN told her the truth that he couldn't see her face so he asked if he can kiss her because he wants to be able to kiss the person he ever likes because he thinks he may not be able to love anyone because of his disease. VPGH of course didn't gave her permission first but for GH also, it would be like her only way to kiss the person she likes so its like the permission she gave him was also for her because this may be the last time. 

DMN hesitates to kiss her because he can't see her face and so where her lips is and so GH told him to move closer like directing where her lips is then decided to initiate it. It was romantic in a sense but really it is sad, why can't they just kiss as DMN and GH!!!!

 

About the preview...GH seemed to be cheering up DMN because of the recent break up and it seems like she told him that she likes him (but he may interpreted it as like not love?) but he is giving her flowers so maybe GH really did confess. Then DMN might be thinking that he could forget VPGH if he try courting or falling in love with GH (but dude, you're already in love with her!!!). If it is really what will happen, it will make their relationship more complicated- GH will get hurt more because deep inside her heart she thinks that it will never be the real her who DMN love. 

 

As for my favorite scene. I don't really understand what they were saying when GH was seating inside a coffee shop (i think) and DMN entered the shop after taking the call from his doctor. But I kinda get the gist of what their narrations is...It was like they were inside a dream wherein they could spend that day or amount of time together like lovers then after the clock strikes 12, the magic will go away. They won't be seeing each other again and be like a total stranger, in DMN's part he does not know what she looks like and for GH this is the end of pretense. And so the two decided to just go with the flow, be in their own fairy tale before the magic ends.:tears:

 

P.S. Thanks for our recappers. Again, you guys are the best!

As a drama watcher, I hate misunderstandings, especially the ones that linger. As a writer, I get that it can be a great tool to keep and move a plot along, however, I really wish that GH had told DMI the truth. Even if he didn't believe her, if she told him, it would be less angst and she could stop this ridiculous charade. The fact is, as interesting as VP is, she and DMI are not compatible. DMI is looking for real love, preferrably with someone who is loyal and as into him and he is with them. That is not VP. 

 

She fell head over heels for DJ because he isn't interested in her. That lack of interest. That laissez-faire attitude of his is somehow driving her crazy in a romantic way. DMI is the complete opposite. He shows his interest and isn't afraid to be vulnerable and say when he needs someone. So, NO. He is not in love with the real VP. Even when he spoke in front of the shareholders and could see for a minute. He took one look at VP and was look who is that and moved his attention back to GH. There was no love at first sight or anything like that. His reasons for liking the fake VP aren't based on anything physical or even the fact that she is a CEO. He likes the personality and the kindness fake VP/GH has shown. Where things have gotten muddled is how familiar GH is now that he has recognized interest in the fake VP. He can't help but notice the similarities, then when he saw her face, he leaned on his illness instead of realizing that it was actually GH pretending to be VP  because he couldn't imagine that GH would like him after everything he has put her through.

 

Twice, Dr. Gu has asked him about liking GH and both times, he has panicked and his blood pressure has risen. DMI knows that there is something there, but in typical k-drama fashion, he hasn't connected the dots and realized that he is in love with her. I think the separation isn't going to come from him finding out she is a fake VP, but rather his uncle finding out that he has a new health issue. When he had the whole compression stocking incident with the cleaning lady, he specifically asked GH to fetch his suit, which she did. However, it was already too late and the uncle had already seen what he left in his pocket. I can see DMI jumping the gun and assuming that GH gave that form to the uncle like his former secretary did. So, let's brace ourselves.

This fake thing does not do well with me. I might not continue watching it live and wait for the series to end before watching it again. This was the perfect episode for him to know about the deception. If he knew it this episode, it will be romcom all the way. Funny and sweet scenes etc. But beyond this episode, there will just be angst. And dealing with angst by waiting next episode is bad. Haha. 

 

The last scene was good though, I would admit. Still bringing the feels. Thumbs up. The actors are good.

Okay this episode was heartbreak ON SO MANY LEVELS :bawling::heartbreak:

 

1. GH now knows how 'in love' Dom is with VP - which makes her think even more that he will never like someone like her.

2. The fact that he told her he most probably won't fall for anyone else with his condition, that's why he asked her for that kiss as he said it will be his last in this life. Imagine GH hearing this :tears: 

3. GH enjoying being pampered as VP-GH just so she can spend time with Dom because in her head, he will never see GH as anything more than a secretary. 

4. Dom seeing GH in the 'night spa' and how she tries to avoid him makes him think even more that she hates him :(

4. GH begging DJ not to say anything to Dom UGH this scene broke me! Even watching it w/o subs was painful. DJ definitely knows GH likes Dom now.

5. Both Dom and GH realising the harsh reality of his condition. Him not being able to even see that VP-GH was crying must have been hurtful :(

6. THE KISS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL. Bittersweet. But still beautiful.

They should be caught in the rain and her hair will get drenched and she'll be forced to remove her glasses. And on the brink of realization, he gets distracted by a thunderclap. 

 

VP takes every opportunity to be funny and play the situation. Look at how she appropriates the broken hand statue.

Nor me either.  It makes me feel queasy.  And, honestly, as much as I really, really loved the first two episodes, I quit watching when I knew that GH was deceiving Dom.  I'm just reading recaps because I'm not fully ready to give up on this show.

 

There's an old saying that my folks taught me, and I know that it is true:

The person who tells a lie will become a slave to that lie.

Anyone else who has ever been caught in a lie will realize the truth of that, too.  Lies are all about loss of control and exits being slammed shut and getting stuck in a corner.  Lies do nothing but cause pain and unhappiness.  

 

I was literally cringing when I read about GH pretending to be both herself and FV.  That's not funny; it's just painful for her, and it's cruel to Dom.  How can she live with herself for treating him this way?  He doesn't deserve betrayal (no one does!) but that's the only thing he has ever gotten from anyone, including his "best" friend.  I can't stand that.

 

It doesn't matter how "good" the kisses look in the gifs, they are tainted and false and poisoned because there is no truth between GH and Dom.

 

I want the deception to be over.  Immediately. 

 

But, you know what, as an honest person I've gotta say it:  this show and I are probably done.  I'm sorry because I think JKJ is great in this role, and that's the reason I started watching.  

 

I just realized as I wrote this stuff that it's making me angry, and I don't have time for that.

Hello everyone, hope you're doing well! Not to be that person, but I must say that I'm quite disappointed, there's no reason for the lie not to unfold, it just pains me at this point lol, and I can't seem to enjoy the scene between fake veronica and dom I'd rather watch the scene between him and GH. And the more it'll take to unfold the more pain they'll make us go through 

All in all Im not sure I'm ready to watch today's ep, I don't want to see her deceiving him etc (I'm just rambling haha)

Alhough, I don't like fact that he kissed VP-GH(kiss scene itself was :heart:), I won't give up on the story. There might be reason why they are doing it this way, and maybe he need to realised first that his own words about not to be able to fell in love with anyone else, were not true. 

As he still denny to be in love with GH, he need some help to realise it (will DJ help, now when he knows?). 

And now I wonder when he will see GH one more time (and I hope that her 'I like you' was not a love confession,rather comforting when he felt unhappy ehh)

I'm that person, too.....see  my post above yours.  ;)

 

The lie is making me really annoyed.  I know that good drama is supposed to make us experience an emotional reaction.  If it doesn't, then it's not doing its job.  However, this one is making me Annoyed because the deception is offensive given the male leads traumatic past and troubling medical condition, and I kinda think that's not the reaction a good production wants its audience to have.

Exactly, and lying at this point is really meaningless (I don't condone lying but in some dramas I CAN somehow understand why the person is lying even tho it's better to just come clean) but in this case and knowing how understanding the male lead is, just keeping on lying is just annoying at this point

But if he finds out so soon , the drama will be over by eps 12 .:D Cause the main storyline is about her secret life , that was the synopsis of the drama since the beginning.....it’d be a real fun twist that he finds out & then plays along to tease /“ torture “ her :lol:

1. [+137,-8]
I'm one of the people who live life finding pleasure in watching this drama. Young Kwang-nim is the king of romcoms. 

2. [+97,-10]
I used to think that Kim Young Kwang is bad at acting. But this time, I'm seeing him in a new light. 


3. [+66,-27]
Ah.. Kim Young Kwang. ㅠㅠ I didn't like him because of his comment saying that he doesn't like women with huge calves. But this drama made my heart flutter so much. ㅠㅠ Kim Young Kwang-ah... What should I do with you? ㅠㅠㅠ I think I should forgive you for that comment. 


4. [+38,-5]
Why isn't this a daily dramaㅠㅠㅠ?? I'm only waiting for Mondays and Tuesdays to come. ㅠㅠ


5. [+33,-6]
They are so affectionate. 


6. [+24,-0]
This drama is fun ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ But it's a pity that not many people watch this. It is very romcom-like. 


7. [+22,-2]
Jin Ki Joo looked ordinary in the beginning, but she seems to get more charismatic the more I watch. And because she has round eyes, she looks adorable. 


8. [+20,-0]
Today's episode was seriously daebak. ㅠㅠㅠ Gal Hee was so pretty. 


9. [+17,-0]
This is really interesting to watch and it isn't heavy. 


10. [+16,-0]
I hope many people watch this, please... This is a really good drama, it's a romcom that makes your heart throb.

So true.  Sometimes a lie for drama's sake moves the story along (although I detest lying in real life and in general).  In this case, it's just painful.  Lying to a character who has already suffered immense personal damage because of other people is beyond wrong.  It's not funny, amusing, or entertaining.  I want this show to be better than that.  I want the character of GH to be better than that.

Another instance of the writer using a plot device, ie., GH impersonating VP, without knowing when to change to the next plot device.  Or, the writer has no new ideas to move the drama along to the next stage. So, they have to keep the sham continuing, which has gotten repetitive and boring. :blink:

 

The drama has enough side characters for tangent storylines.  Such as the visually impaired brother and the younger sister striving to be a star.  These characters are totally underutilized.
