I believe that Tammy is traumatized by the marriage hence she doesn't want to get married. I suspect that SKK's marriage could be one of the reasons for her trauma. She used to be SKK's close friend and co-worker before SKK got married. However, after the marriage, she witnessed how SKK drifted away from her own beliefs and she changed so much to the point that Tammy was no longer treated like a friend. So in her eyes, the marriage is responsible for the changes in SKK hence Tammy can not perceive marriage as something good. Besides, we shouldn't forget that Tammy became a victim again due to Oh Jin Woo, she was targeted by the spouse in order to protect his wife. Yet, SKK did commit something wrong with the actor who worked at a host bar. In my opinion, Tammy has made many bad experiences related to marriage so that she came to the conclusion that marriage is not something good.

- It affects the personality, makes someone give up his belief

- It can be the reason why you hurt others

- It looks like a cage where you are not allowed to do what you want (Tammy is well aware of the pressure coming from the mother-in-law)

@gilaswan Very well written. I was ready to hit the Insightful button until I read the last paragraph & made me hesitated for the LOL button. :D I'm hoping next episode they would rewind a bit to show us why Morgan is still in the elevator. Did he genuinely hesitated & wished for her to chase after him? Another reversal of the typical gender role if this is the case. Or he loves her so much that he couldn't bear leaving & end it there? Or like others think, it's a power game & he's gambled all his cards & manipulated this. And then of course I hope we get a longer kiss scene. :P

 

@stargazer187 LOL same! I love Tekken. What's your favourite/choice of character to use? True, we should have one as what you suggested esp. GG vs MIL. I was cheering internally GG finally stood her ground.

Aha to the underwhelming kiss scene between Ta-Mi & Mo-Gan:lol: Gee ya don't say?! :P I was a lil letdown as you pointed out as this was TVN - known for mostly delivering steamy, passionate lip smacking goodness LoL;):phew: 

   Maybe Mo-Gan was just trying to pace himself eheh? He's probably saving up the good stuff when he/Ta-Mi are done "fishing":w00t:

Hi @thistle I interpreted the BTM/PMG relationship a little bit differently than you. For all the talk of managing the "fish tank", I never got the impression that BTM was playing games with PMG just to keep him on the hook.

 

I feel that she sometimes doesn't realise how hurtful she's being, but once she gets called on it she thinks it over and changes her behaviour to take his feelings into account. For example when she wasn't responding to his texts because she was busy - she clarified with him that is wasn't because she didn't want to talk to him and that going forward she wouldn't be able to respond to every single text but would make an effort to call regularly.

 

So far I've found their communication to be pretty good - well at least he's good, he brings up topics that are bothering him - and for her part she digests what he's saying and responds.

 

While I do feel she takes a bit of a step back every time a new challenge or difference of opinion arises, I don't see that as a power play. Either he's willing to move a the snail's pace with her making small incremental steps or he's not - and so far he seems willing.

As a woman...I like that he protected the bag..lol....

He's playing his role like a thoughtful man who has found his soul mate.... only to realise that she doesn't want to play house per se or is career focused....

He's also young... So he has the energy to chase...

But I think the drama focus is on the 3 women so the characters are probably more developed in that area.... which could explain why I've got a lukewarm response to the main OTP at the mo.... even though I loved the scene when he wakes up and dolls up and then pretends to have just woken up.... that's a stereotype that exists for some couples....lol

There are those among us for whom marriage is not part of their genetic make up, and that is absolutely fine — singlehood should be respected and even celebrated. But societal pressures to conform to majority expectations is very real.

This is why even though I get so annoyed with BTM’s back and forth with PM, I can understand how she may be intimidated by changing her ‘lifestyle’ because she is someone that values singlehood and independence, which I respect. I would love to see a representation of modern day women that willingly choose singlehood because they want to not cause they have to. So it would be a bit sad if BTM can’t be that representation if she ends up with PM. But if she doesn’t, it would also be a bit frustrating that we had to go through all these episodes watching their tug of war in love just for it all to be nothing. Basically I’m on the fence about whether I want BTM to end up alone but as happy as she would with someone or realize that maybe at one stage of her life, like when she was with LDW, she favored singlehood and not being married, but now her preferences have changed which is fine. I think we have seen a lot in this show people change throigh times and hardship; GG with her arranged marriage, CH with losing her judo spot but becoming star student to future barro employee.

And the only reason why this can be explored through a noona-relationship is because the power balance is shifted and without traditional male attitudes and power relations in place, can we discuss the changing tides of what defines this generation waiting to receive the baton from the outgoing ones.

Seeing the Barro work environment reminds me of what I heard Google and other IT tech companies office buildings are like. You can dress however you want, the offices are all cool looking rather bleak but traditional to what most company offices look like. Then there’s the fact that no one addresses the other as titles and all speak one manner formally. It’s like there’s this precedent for coworkers to all treat each other equally, thus establishing a dynamic from the beginning with unconventional power balance compared to Unicon where everyone’s dressed professionally and using different titles. I still wonder if Barro is any different than Unicon though when it comes to protecting their employees. I know Brian did everything in his power when BTM was the top keyword search, but I can’t help wondering if what makes these two company similar is their willingness to throw the employee under the bus for the sake of the company.

The internet has the potential to significantly shift power into the hands of the masses than the few. MIL is still trying to maintain hold of old school powers, and she shows it by the way she tramples on what she perceives to be the small and insignificant, symbolically drawing and leaving her mark on a much lesser human canvas. 

Wow I love your insight on this chingu, I didn’t think of it like that! Ugh she is so creepy!!

Kakyung’s character seems very tragic.

Honestly I wonder if the MIL is responsible for GG’s parents bankruptcy. Like it was a way to blackmail her into the marriage (since they all knew each other before her parents went in debt,  MIL saw how son was in love with her or how competent she was.) I recently found out that the Viki page for this show has a lot of character descriptions and spoilers if you scroll down near the end. The husbands backstory spoke about how he was very into film and went abroad or to some school for it that his mother was against. So maybe it was during this time when she decided she has to get GG aboard since her son wasn’t gonna be any help to the family business.

Is Tammy right to be that angry with her? Perhaps, perhaps not. But the greys in which these characters exist is exactly what makes this story well written so far. Except for the very few times in life when things are black or white, most others exist on a spectrum of greys.

The grey part is exactly what I thought when I wrote the beginning of this post, because I think BTM changing her mind about marriage is a perfect example now life is grey. Sometimes you can’t keep the same mindset from the past because you’re not the same person as you were now. Sometimes you can’t just put yourself in a box or label yourself as something, because not everything can just fall in one category and be separated by lines, most of the time they’re blurred and it’s cant be black vs white.

 

Pardon my air headedness, but what does it even mean, this whole analogy or metaphor or whatever you call it about the fish tank? What do the leads mean when they bring up this figurative fish tank ??

I agree with you on BTM/PMG relationship.. I don't think she is playing games.... 

 

I see it as a moral battle she is having within her.... This guy is 10years younger than her, it would seem inappropriate to date a younger man as the society is rather conservative... So she wants to draw the line... 

 

I see it as insecurity from her part.... This guy could leave her for a younger woman...For someone so competitive and independent... It will hurt her pride.. 

 

I see it as her not wanting to be seen vulnerable... I think she must be hurt badly from her last relationship that she decided to put all her energy into work and not go into another relationship... If she goes into a relationship now.. It means making herself open to be hurt again.. Which she rather not... 

 

That's why that back and forth in their relationship.. And it is so relatable as that's us humans; Excited by the thought of being woo by a younger man but afraid that we will be burnt by the relationship....

my reaction after watching eps 8 is the same as scarlett when she is watching her drama, "daebak, this drama is so much fun"  from morgan's new style and how tammy's reaction to that, barro's sticker, no one comes to the ceo's dinner, ga gyeong and her husband, the affairs guy and how they solve the problem, really having fun watching all of it. hope this drama would be more popular.

I also understand very well about tammy, she is not being in power or toying with morgan, her purpose and morgan's very different, she didn't want morgan to waste his time with her while he is in the right time to pursuing his purpose which is married but on the other hands they are very attracted to each other, in terms of physical, enjoying each other's company, keep thinking of each other and missing each other a lot. its kind of relatable with people's nowadays where there are some people chose not to married. 

I also don't understand about fish tank, thought I was the only one.

about the preview, its sad hearing ga gyeong keep saying she wants to dissappear.

At this stage, I'm not sure what the intention of this writer is for Tami & Morgan but my guess is either she's trying to tell us love can change our minds/hearts (it's fishy she emphasized on LDW wondering if Tami refused to marry him or she just doesn't want to be married). OR she's trying to educate us that in this new world, a man and a woman can still pursue happiness without being married & have kids. With this in mind, that is why I threw out all those questions about marriage in previous page, because I have a few friends that aren't married and they are just as content without that piece of paper.

 

In Australia a couple can be in a de-facto relationship without being legally married & this is legally recognised in Australia. Maybe this is why the writer specifically setup Morgan's background as being adopted to Australia. They can migrate to Australia later for their happily ever after without being judged by the narrow-minded society.

 

Fish tank - doesn't it have the similar metaphor as when we say "there are plenty of fish in the sea"?

As I understand it, the fish tank analogy basically equates it to a person who dates a lot of people at the same time - ie. keeps a "fish tank" full of "fish".

 

BTM obviously doesn't date a lot, so she has a fish tank with one fish.

I love this show - it kicks the Bechdel test's butt - the women don't just spend time sitting around talking about their boy problems - in fact, they spend most of the time talking about work! But that's just one kind of icing on this cake. There's also:

- hot man

- man who is thoughtful and directly communicative, and woman who is also thoughtful and directly communicative (what??)

- flipping gender tropes (love that she's the one eyeballing him)

- complex relationships (anyone get an almost non-platonic vibe between Scarlet and SGG?)

- smart women solving problems

- debate on complex issues such as privacy, work/professional ethics, views on marriage and relationships between women, men, with/without age differences, old-school vs. next-generation political power

 

My only beef is *sometimes* it is a little painstaking/repetitive (when it comes to the main leads). Hopefully after this we can move forward!

 

Well done, show! I hope they keep it up! I also hope they don't fall down and take the easy way out and just have her change her mind and decide she wants to marry him and have babies (barf). Don't get me wrong, I am married and have a child, but really, is that the only HEA?

@philosophie @rainy12

 

I started a rewatch - in the second episode there was a translator's note re the fish tank manager analogy - "Someone who flirts aroud". PMG then says he'd like to swim into her fish tank, and so long as she feeds the tank well and gives him a bit of bait regularly he'll survive.

 

A few episodes later I remember her asking him some personal questions about his health, financial status etc and she phrased them as "management questions" as she looks after her aquarium.

 

They also joke with his colleague/employee that he used to have a fish tank - i.e. he'd go around flirting with lots of girls, maybe at the same time, but not have anything serious going on.

 

For all of their joking about it, I don't see that anyone else has been remotely close to sharing aquarium space with him.

Haha, I quite enjoyed that scene too. Way better than some of the oddly placed "shower" scenes that sometimes appear for no purpose except ogling on the part of the viewer. I like the PMG is confident about the way he looks without being too egotistical about it.

 

Also, I don't think they want us to watch it innocently.

I agree! I enjoy that scene because of PM! His remarks are so adorably hot! I was like “dang man, even i am stripping you in my head!” :joy:

 

lol i don’t want my pervy side to shine so im trying to watch it innocently but after the recent episodes and kiss, i am no longer going to try!

Reasons Why Viewers Can’t Get Enough Of Lee Da Hee In “Search: WWW”

by S. Cho
16750adb68af40559c6e23cbcaaf7536.jpeg?s=

Charming actress Lee Da Hee has done it once again with tvN’s “Search: WWW”!

Lee Da Hee plays Cha Hyun, the manager of Barro, a portal site that is second only to top site Unicon. She’s a fiercely passionate woman who often has trouble controlling her anger. Along with her perfect visuals and fiery personality, Cha Hyun is also beginning to show a softer and lovelier side, adding to the endless realm of her charms.

2019062901002200600151011.jpg

In the first episode, Bae Ta Mi (Im Soo Jung) finished a hearing and happened to get herself in the car that belongs to Cha Hyun. Bae Ta Mi had just covered up a fabrication issue regarding her portal site Unicon by saying a member of congress had been involved in a prostitution scandal with someone underage. Addressing her rival, Cha Hyun firmly said, “If you can’t cleanly reveal the truth, don’t get caught up in playing the act of the miserable hero,” leaving a strong first impression on viewers. Her entrance made her rivalry with Bae Ta Mi clear and helped viewers understand the fierceness of her girl crush character as well as the upcoming intensity of the drama.

Great to see that WWW is getting recognition, where Im So Jung and Jang Ki Yong is in top 7 in the drama actors list in brand recognition! Congrats!

 

It was honestly frustrating to see BTM keep pushing Morgan out even before they started, yes, they are 10 years difference between them, and Morgan have shown how mature he is to BTM. When Morgan said he keep smashing walls and a new one came up, i feel him. Its great that he took the step to end the relationship since BTM didnt want it, and I dont get why he keep apologizing to her, them, and how they ended up sleeping with each other on their 1st meeting and how could things be different if they didnt. Sigh. As for the kiss scene, JKY is still new i guess? haha

 

Scarlett is gaining attention, just like in Secret Life of My Secretary, where Veronica Park really stole the show from Gal Hee. BTM is still hot but because of her pull and push with Morgan, i think audience really just got tired of it.  I'm glad all of that is resolved and audience can focus on  Scarlett's storyline as well as Ga Young's.

 

Directors/producers were flirting with the idea if both Scarlett and Ga Young could be attracted to each other, but I'm glad we are not going along that direction. (Fingers crossed). It seemed clear that Ga Young like her husband and vice versa, but because of his mother, he is being cautious. All those 'girlfriends' are just smokescreen  to his mother. I hope all the ladies in the show will get their happy ending. :)
