Why am I late to the game? I just started watching the first two episodes and I'm already girl crushing over Bae Ta Mi and Scarlett!!! 

It's so refreshing to see a female centered drama in which they have so much confidence and strength. It's amazingggg! 

 

And always rooting for Lee Da Ha who is always killer in her roles!!!

Can someone who is more awake than me explain the JW and SGG dinner conversation? I can understand what he is saying during the drive in the Maserati. Or even what he wanted her to continue doing with her life in the ending scene.

 

But how do I interpret SGG's answer to say she kept her promise to keep him informed? What does she mean disappear to where? Plus what does it mean when she doesn't answer when he said he has to be the one in the one sided love relationship?

 

And all these in the context of understanding how it would mean with the implied future since nothing was concrete for all 3.

 

Even TM and Morgan. I presume that means she has decided to live for the relationship in the present. Not live anticipating an unhappy future together resulting in another break up..

 

I guess you have to be in a relationship to actually have a break up in the future. Her issues has always been anticipating the future and not living in the present.

 

 

Absolutely hushed from work and not thinking clearly to understand. Yet it's bugging me and I am just all weekend.

 

 

Thanks.

 

During the car ride, she was warning him about what she was planning to do i.e. bring his mother and Unicon down. He continued to support her regardless.

 

JW congratulated GG on finally being free during dinner. He knew how much she suffered while married to him. He had promised GG that he would divorce her in an earlier episode to enable her to be free from his controlling family and GG had promised that she would let him know when she would disappear because this had been her wish in an earlier episode. Them both keeping their promise to eachother is significant because given everything they have both endured while being in a business marriage, their relationship has developed from the start to mutual respect and care for eachother. 

 

I don't think GG rejected JW entirely, her facial expressions speak more than her words and you can definitely tell she was affected by his feelings for her but she knew that they couldn't pursue a relationship immediately given everything that was due to come. I think JW understood that GG wanted to fulfil her wish to disappear which means she can live her life on her own accord for once and he wasn't going to persuade her otherwise because he knows she needs time to herself after everything she's been through. When he sent her his car at the end, it was his own way of reminding her that he was still around and here for her. The message he left her was to show that he was supporting her in doing what she wanted. I think she knew that he wouldn't give up on her because earlier when he had asked her what he could do when he wanted to see her, she had said that he produces movies so she's sure he'll think of something. The car and his message was his way of telling her he would wait for her and that he hasn't given up I think. When the time is ready and after all the media disappears, I think GG will be comfortable in giving him a chance.

 

TM has finally accepted that she can't let go of PM so even though they haven't resolved their differences in life goals, she wants them to continue together. I think her realization means she will approach their differences in a more open minded optimistic manner from now on rather than continuously clouding every situation in doubt. I gave a bit more reasoning to this in a comment above.

 

Out of the 3 relationships, CH and JH had the most concrete ending. They are both happily in love and I have no doubts that their relationship will continue on when he finishes his mandatory service.

I just want to add...

I find Jang Ki Yong a really fine actor. I'm impressed by his performance. And he's just 26 years old! 

It's my first time to watch him, but I'm buying what he's selling. :)

He need not say anything, his expressions say it all. Especially in his last scene with Ta-Mi where I've felt his joy, relief, love and excitement that he's together again with Ta-Mi. And when he scrunched his nose, Omo! Cuteness overload.

Now, I'm off to hunting more of his shows. I've heard he killed it in "Kill It" - pun intended. :)

Yup am primarily rewatching the SJH/CH parts as they are so adorable.

CH character was quite pure...she was a fighter throughout...a lot of judo/sports have an honour based ideology... hence she was a rescuer of sorts...to tami/gg and even JH after she tripped him up.

For JH..I kind of placed him as a person who was bookish and down to earth....hence the phone/books etc and of course his youth...

She probably fascinated him as much as he fascinated her...

So hence the initial hesitant relationship... since they had to figure out whether her attraction to him was purely as a fan..

I like that the script pointed out that he couldn't do anything if she was a fan...as that would be taking advantage of her affections as a fan...

Ethics

I dare say this is one of the best drama this year. The theme of this drama is something fresh, talking about web portals with 3 powerful women in the industry. I love Park Morgan's character the most, he's just a damn hot good guy:wub: I kept mumbling to myself while watching this drama (almost like Scarlet lol) asking Bae Tami to accept him despite their big age gap. I like all love relationship between our 3 awesome ladies with their partners. I'm glad all of them got their own happy ending. They ended this drama with such a cool and satisfied ending. I have no complaint at all. Gonna miss them a lot.

JKY is at his very best in Come Here and Hug Me.  You definitely have to watch that one!  But prepare to cry buckets of tears.  That drama is in my Top Five Best Ever list.

Jang Ki Yong indeed an excellent and versatile actor. He's growing up to be one of A list actors!

I first noticed him in My Mister. Since that I remember his face because his character in My Mister was really awesome although he was an antagonist. He left a big impression on me. Then I watched him in Come and Hug Me, a melodrama that tearing me apart. I also watched him in Go Back Couple and Kill It. He nailed every character, you can feel his emotion and understand his gesture and expression very well. Not only a good looking guy, he is versatile and very talented. I'm looking forward to his next project and definitely will follow him around lol.

I waited until I could have full subs to watch the end because I knew that every word was going to be important. The writers packed so much into this last episode that this one had me guessing until the end.  I spent most of the last episode yelling at Tammy. If she had cut Morgan lose and walked happily back into her workaholic life I wouldn't have spent so much of my time yelling at my laptop telling her what a dumb you know what she is. She let him go because she couldn't face losing him than felt no joy in her life because she lost him. Does that make sense on any level?  Morgan's mom dying in an accident should be a life lesson for all of us.  Nothing is promised not even the next moment so hang on to the seconds you are in because in the end that's all you have. Scarlet was cute. Her love story was so her. It was sweet and had an air of innocence. She might be a tough cookie in her professional life but when it comes to love she knew what she valued most.   When her man came home on leave she grabbed for her moment. " I taking 4 days leave", then it was peace out and she was on her way.  In the end, my favorite hands down was Song Ga Kyung.  She had the most to lose and was the bravest of the three women.  Song Ga Kyung made difficult choices in both her personal and professional life. The writers didn't make her into the typical hero who has no problem making the "right choices".  She was a real woman with fears and flaws. When you have the power it's hard to give it up. When you have a man who is offering to love you that's hard to walk away from too.  I loved how Song Ga Kyung stood strong, figured out a way to free herself from a life that made her unhappy and still had the guts to take down her mother in law. The ending with the three women riding off to find a place with no "red lights was just perfect.  Plus my romantic heart loves the fact that the car they rode off in belonged to her x husband. Cheers to the writers.  They did an excellent job of portraying a group of women who stood firm and strong in their power. This drama was a real winner and I will miss it

He is one fine actor. I started liking him after watching Come And Hug Me which was his first lead role. You should definitely watch My Mister with IU and Lee Sun Kyun (which happens to be Jun Hye Jin “Song Ga Gyung’s” real life husband). I think his role in there was one of his best performance. Then you’ll have second lead syndrome with him in Go Back Couple. 

 

@thistle what’s your top fav 5 dramas?

@mademoisellesia I can’t remember which scene Ellie said when she mentioned that she has a boyfriend. It’s somewhere in the beginning of the episodes but I know she did mentioned him a few times later on too. I’ll have to rewatch it again

 

 

Also, does anyone know SJH’s ring tone? It sounded like a melody to Lee Da Hee’s song, I Saw You On TV. It’s such a cute melody. I want it for my phone too.

There's no order to this list, and it's a mix of Korean and Japanese:

Come Here and Hug Me

Just Between Lovers

Nagareboshi

Tatta Hitotsu No Koi

Kingyo Club

 

I started watching JDoramas first, so those I mention are older but they are still incredibly re-watchable (certainly I re-watch Nagareboshi every autumn) and they still break my heart (in a good way).  I suppose I like characters who are damaged, who face real challenges, and who help one another overcome.  

 

Characters who lie and cheat totally put me off.  Chaebols just annoy me completely.  I want to see about something that feels real.  That's why One Spring Night is in my top ten--it's really real.

 

I liked WWW well enough, and it was worth watching right the way through.  It's a nicely made drama.  The visuals especially made an impact. 

 

But I could not get past the way the JKY's character was written (undoubtedly everyone on this thread is sick of hearing me say so) and I thought he deserved better than to be used as a battering ram to destroy male stereotypes--the way that he was turned into an "old-fashioned girl" stereotype really annoyed me because it seemed like the writer was pushing a personal agenda to thumb her nose as some of the ways that women's roles have been written traditionally.  It's a habit of many people to try to proclaim their admiration for one thing by deliberately destroying its opposite.  I don't think that way--I believe that we need to know darkness to understand light.  The writer could have made her point more gracefully just by letting her women be strong.  She wrote JW as a brilliantly strong masculine man who didn't have to do anything to prove who he was.  He made mistakes, he learned, he moved forward, he gave, he took.  Amazing character.  I wish she had done the same with Morgan.  (sorry, I started going off about this again; I guess I'm still annoyed LOL )

 

So, what is your top five? :)

Actually, this drama also showed the importance and power of sister-hood.

 

The ex-ceo of unicon was an obedient and groveling employee. Yet, as she revealed when she gave the usb to GG , even she had been collecting information all this time, and had wanted to take down the old lady.   However, she didn't have a consortium like our trio of Thelma and Louise-ish ladies.  (Naturally, our ladies had a better ending than T&L.)  So, she was neither able to protect herself nor her job. (She really should have read, "Art of War" for tips.:P).   

 

This was the ending that I expected because it fits perfectly with the way the story and characters were developed.  Bravo to the writer, director, etc.:thumbsup:

It was a good ending for the drama. 

 

But, you know what, I was left thinking why on earth those three high-powered techno-savvy women were going to someplace with no stop light?  :blink:  I mean, really?  What are they gonna find to do there?  I bet they just turn around and go back to the city to get drunk.  :lol:

@thistle we all have different opinions on characters in a show. We either love them or hate them. Same with each characters own storyline. Some can be boring and the others can be more interesting. I’m glad to read everyone’s POV on the characters or shows. 

 

If I really have to choose top 4-5, these will have to be it (in no order). These dramas are dramas that I can watch over and over and over again and still love every moment of it. Can never get tired of it. When I rewatch it, it’s as if I’m watching it for the first time. 

 

 

Kdramas

Delightful Girl Choon Hyang

My Love Patzzi

Secret Garden

My Name Is Kim Sam Soon

 

Jdoramas

Orange Days

Liar Game

Hana Yori Dango

1 Litre Of Tears

 

 

I like Tatta Hitotsu No Koi too but for some reason I didn’t like Ayase Haruka’s character as much.

I  can watch MNIKSS forever!!! It was the first K-drama I ever watched that got me hooked onto K-dramas. If you're interested, there is a Thai version that is currently being filmed. It'll probably air either late in the year or next year starring Film Thanapat & Bee Namthip.

Agree.

Each of us have different POV. And it's why I like this thread a lot because each have expressed their opinion while respecting others' opinion. 

I'm pretty much new to watching asian dramas in general, just less than a year, so, I haven't watched as many as, maybe, a lot of you here.

With me, I actually started with C-Dramas. I got curious enough to watch Love 020 series and I love it, and I got hooked since then. Although, it's disappointing that most of the C-Dramas I watched after that, especially those with more than 30 episodes, kinda follow the same pattern of, first half, it was awesome, then the second half, it's crap. I think C-Drama should do the same as K-Drama. Just keep it short and sweet. 16 by standard, if it's too good, 20. But no more than that because almost always, plot just go nowhere after that.

So, what's my list other than WWW? Since, I'm pretty "young" in this, 5 of the ones I love are pretty much recent ones:

KDrama

What's Wrong with Secretary Kim - This is my very first KDrama and it's what sold me to continue watching KDrama.

Korean Odyssey

Pinocchio

Healer - Ji Chang-Wook is hot!

Kill Me, Heal Me - Ji Sung is brilliant in his portrayal of his 7 split personalities 

 

CDrama

Love 020 - It's a simple love story that shows that you don't need a third wheel/love triangle to make a plot work. Plus, the virtual world of gaming is an awesome addition.

The Story of Minglan - While this has 68 episodes, I find that almost all episodes are relevant and not just filler, as what usually happen with a Cdrama.

Le Coup de Foudre 

Princess Agents - It was really good until the ending, which is a major, major, cliffhanger. When the last scene ended, I'm like, "huh?!?!??? That's it???"

Eternal Love (10 Miles of Peach Blossoms) - I've watched this at least 3x. :P

Finally finding the time to put in my few cents worth of comments on the concluding episodes.

 

I belong to the camp that found Tami and Morgan’s relationship too tiring and draggy to follow. Admittedly, I ignored portions with them in the last episodes cos it was clear where the writer was taking it. I personally felt that as much as yes, their story could be played out in this manner in real life, on reel it didn’t require that much screen time. Half of those scenes of moping about need not have been shown to get that point across. And did I like that Morgan’s Mum had to die for all that to happen? No. I didn’t. I agree that was lazy writing. Was she terminally ill and no one knew? Her Husband knew about Morgan but no one else did? If that was the direction it was going to take, then maybe more screen time on that story than of Tami and Morgan wallowing in self-pity.

 

For all those wasted screen minutes, we could’ve had more of Tami’s backstory — she remains the one character so little is known about. We could have had more Hyeon & Jihwan screentime!! Even more of GK and her ex-husband and the end of evil MIL would’ve been good.

 

But nevertheless, was it a good ending? Yes. I liked that in the end, the 3 women drove off into a place with no red lights, dignity and integrity intact.
