Everyone spazzing about KJW, allow me to rave about PMY xD

 

Hearing her speak in English just boosted my crush that much more, I mean I've heard her speak, but not more than 1 sentence. Her accent is damn cute.

 

I mentioned this before, what the hell is with her shadow/silhouette?? it's just as gorgeous as her :wub:.

 

Also love the scene where she was hitting RG for worrying her, don't blame him one bit for smiling at her, she makes nagging look adorable.

 

Was also a pleasant surprise to seeing her home clothes when she met EG, the ponytail is messily done yet still cute af, and she's showing off her legs too.

 

The look she gave SA upon hearing that White Ocean has a new single was precious. Settle down girl, you'll blow your cover lmao. I'm still waiting for a scene where she tells RG "I'm the luckiest fan alive, I'm dating my idol's big brother!" :D

 

END RANT, please continue with your KJW musings :lol:

 

 

Edit: So I rewatched the final scene, and I double down on saying that the scene was perfect as it is. Anything more explicit would have distracted from the intimacy of the moment. The first kiss was "hotter" in comparison because it represented 9 episodes-worth of sexual tension, bursting at the seams and exploding after a mutual confirmation of feelings. In contrast, the bed scene represented the next step in their relationship, the peak of their intimacy, as  RG let his guard down to draw despite himself, letting himself melt into DM's arms, and DM herself brought to tears seeing RG give himself to her and declaring his love for her.

 

The skinship was also par for course compared to other dramas of the genre as well as the other bed scenes in PMY shows. I will say this though: the scene is incomplete at the moment; we need a good post-bed scene (which both Healer and WWWSK had). This is probably why at this time, I don't feel like the moment is "whole" yet, since I binged watched the other 2 dramas and so didn't suffer from waiting another week for the next episodes lmao. PD has failed my expectations yet, so I feel like we would be getting a good scene there at the beginning of ep15. 

I agree with you.

Mostly people just comment on how good KJW is but they forgot to mention how great is PMY.

I mean, KJW able to potray such character seamlessly must be complement by PMY herself.

How she able to potray the character of Deokmi might triggered KJW to potray the character of Ryan Gold as real as possible.

Yeah I thought so @luvcrabbieshinhwa at first I postponed to watch this drama because some netizens commented that it looks similar but then I remember my love KJW. I felt in love with him since Coffee Prince days and too bad I didn't follow this drama since beginning. Thankfully that I join this when the drama barely 6 episodes.

 

And now I am already having withdrawal syndrome :(

 

Anw, I just want to comment how beautiful Deokmi on 14 episode I mean her hair in Ep. 12 & 13 are not fabs as usual but still pretty tho.

 

And also I love these outfits of hers.

The white one tho, she just posted her IG with that outfit barely 3 days ago...They literally on live shooting now..must be tiring and sad that this will come to an end already.

Even though the drama ratings didn't do justice, hopefully tvN will still give them reward trip.

I wanna see their real interactions out of characters.

 

I come up to melohwa's blog but the spoiler article of Episode 14 still nowhere. Hopefully she will update cause I am dying to see K-Netz reaction.

 

Lastly, my hearts was pounding during the painting scene. How can such scene looks so mature and intense.

I love it when both of them wearing the V Neck shirts. It just looks fatale and fabuluous on them.

It shows maturity and I do like their collarbone hahaha it looks sexy.

Kim Jae-wook really shone in this week's episodes because of the emotional toll involved in finding out the reason for his being abandoned. I thought he was excellent when he realised who Shi-an's mum was, and in his handful of meetings with her (especially his pain in the opening of ep 14, and also when he struggled to digest what she was telling him and had to walk away). It felt right that Ryan found it hard to believe about the accident and all, and @jd50 raised a good point of whether Ryan's mum really searched for him. Did the adoption happen that fast? Was she out of action and lost her memory for years or something? Why didn't she report her child as missing to the police? Isn't that what she should have done if she was so worried about Yoon-jae? Frankly, and this is an unpopular opinion, there is a lot about the mother story that I don't care about. I'm happy for Ryan he resolved a knot in his heart, but that is really about it. I care only because Ryan was in so much pain over his mum and the damn bubbles.

 

May be Lee Sol situation kinda similar with this story? https://adoption.com/meeting-my-south-korean-birth-mother. She could be bedridden for months, and I am sure that she went to the police, when she find out about possibility that her son was adopted out, there slim chance to have even an information about his whereabout, add to the fact that she was not the one who release her son herself. Many parents who want to reconnect with their adopted kid only able to do so when the kid itself make effort to reunite.

By "honest", I do mean that the reason Lee Sol gave for being separated from him just seems too lame to be credible (to me anyway, not sure if anyone else feels the same about it). How can it be that you lose a child because you got into an accident and he gets so easily adopted abroad? Do local agencies there not attempt to track or trace the parent? I mean, he was 7 by that time. Old enough to give another adult his parent's name, I'm sure. Do they not check hospitals? Next of kin? Police accident reports? Wasn't it like that in Healer as well? PMY's character got sent to an orphanage cos the mother got into an accident and she was simply "lost". If they had wanted to explore the issue of overseas adoption during that era, it would have been better to say that she had been forced by her family to give him up cos she was a single mother. No wonder Ryan himself had difficulty believing her too...

 

 

And speaking of husbands... Lee Seol's maiden name was Gong, according to the college yearbook. But RG was registered as Heo, so clearly, he got into his father's registry. And SiAn, if that is his real name, is Cha. So he's got a dad too. So what happened to her first husband? Died?

 

Thank you for pointing these out. There are so many loopholes in the mother story that it is very frustrating, and I have very little sympathy for a woman who thinks it's safe to leave her son alone in a strange place while she does something else. I really wish the drama hadn't gone this route. There were other ways to resolve this issue, so I'm a little disappointed it had to go all melodrama on this. I honestly wish the drama had chosen another reason for Ryan's inability to paint.

 

Except for Deok-mi's dad, who's not much use, none of the other dads seem to exist. Sure, Eun-gi's father seemingly abandoned him, but what about Shi-an's father? Also, Ryan never once called/texted his adoptive parents while he was in Korea, but presumably they have a loving relationship from what he tells Deok-mi. I find it really odd. There is so much to explore that it is annoying the drama has to fall back on childhood connections to make it seem Ryan and Deok-mi are fated to be.

Hi, thank you for the link, it was an interesting read. My frustration is that this is something that could have been avoided if she'd only had the common sense to either bring her kid along with her to that meeting, or make him stay at home. How difficult was either? Also, they were poor, but they did not seem to be in an abusive situation where Ryan was forcibly removed from her. The entire mother story didn't even have to happen (but that's another story for another day).

 

Also, going by what Ryan tells Deok-mi, his adoptive parents were loving and honest with him about his adoption. So if Lee Sol wanted to reconnect, assuming she even searched hard enough, there would be no reason for Ryan's adoptive parents to reject a meeting (even if it is just to see him from afar). I don't begrudge Lee Sol for having a second family, but I always find it unreasonable that a parent who has been MIA for the better part of a child's life suddenly waltzes back with a sob story and all is well. I actually feel very hard for Ryan that he is expected to come to terms with all this in this manner (Shi-an suddenly wanting to make nice as his brother, blah blah) and be the bigger person in it all.

 

Sorry, the mother issue has really ticked me off.

I AGREE

 

She's been a good actress for me. Some ppl said that her acting looks similar from roles to roles... But I don't really agree. She's notably different in Healer, Secretary Kim, and HPL... Though at the early episodes of HPL, she has similar vibes with Kim Miso...but Deokmi gradually feels really different. I must say she did a good act as a fangirl...those squealing looks and moony over SiAn lol.

 

She did a great job, particularly at the last scene... the emotion...the tension...everything TT_TT

Kim Jaewook was totally awesome (and it's generally agreed that he's been a skilled actor)...but Park Minyoung's ability to maintain the same level of acting with him is praiseworthy.

 

And why does she keep getting prettier and prettier....esp after she dates Ryan HAHAHA

 

I've only seen PMY in WWWSK and HPL (have only seen clips of her other dramas), and I think she's a good actress, certainly one of the better ones of her generation. She has a great screen presence. I wasn't a fan of the first two episodes of HPL, but what I did like in those was how she was able to establish Deokmi as distinct from Miso. I felt right away that Deokmi was an entirely different character, and not just because of the writing; it was the way she carried herself, the nuances in her expression, and the energy she exuded. And she seems to be the kind of actor who can elevate another actor who's in a scene with her; not too many can do that. I hope to see her in more adventurous roles (KJW's impact! :lol:), but I do acknowledge that the roles written for women aren't as diverse or plentiful as those available for men. I'll definitely check out whatever her next project is, especially if it's a drama (those are easier to access).

 

@tnl34 That was probably me. Hey, different strokes for different folks, right? :D

@luvcrabbieshinhwaPeople saying her acting is similar in these 3 dramas are blind, I'm sorry to say lol. Deok Mi is more outspoken, mature and outgoing than Mi So, who was basically a passive recipient of the Vice Chairman's affections. Mi So would've never done the "just go ahead and gaze at me, I'll do everything else" scene from the RG seduction scene. Mi So was a fun character but IMHO a bit shallow. PMY wasn't given much to work with there. Deok Mi is a more fleshed-out character, we learn her heartaches, her hopes and dreams, we empathize with her insecurities, we spazz with her when she fangirls, we felt her heartfelt sorrow when she thought RG didn't like her.

 

As for Healer, I'd say Deok Mi had more in common with Chae Young Shin, who was spunky, no-nonsense and a go-getter. But the thing here is, I love PMY exactly because you know she plays strong female leads. She will never be put in as a ditzy, whining, helpless character. She has been "typecast" as a strong woman, and I love that about her roles. 

 

I say this as someone who loves WWWSK, and very recently had it as my favorite drama ever (before being supplanted by you-know-which lol). 

 

This! I am 100 percent agree with U. Chae young shin and Deok Mi kinda similar. But Young shin was the one with emotional baggage in healer, she was lost and adopted. Young shin is a tomboy (coz she grew up mostly without a mom), more a risk taker in her work. While Deok Mi is more feminine and mature, but not too much a risk taker at work. The styling and PMY potrayal makes me can differentiate both characters.

Maybe just maybe on the “bed scene” because DM was dreaming about their childhood (which shown a lot of children playing) they try to make it relevant merging the scenes together (by not showing even bare shoulders)

cause it will lost the “innocent” points of the scene.

 

i mean s.korea is quite a conservative country, so maybe they put a lot of consideration on how to portray the story line/ scenes.

This is me right now:

I'm crying. It's so sad. I'm happy tooo!!! Nooooooooo. Ryan. Don't be sad. Deok Mi please hold him. Deok Mi please take care of him.

Ryan was seven when he was separated from his mum. Think it's been pretty obvious that Ryan and Shi-an are brothers.

 

Also, does Shi-an moonlight as a psychic?

 

Yes, Ryan was seven. I mentioned that later on in my commentary. I don't think it was "pretty obvious" back when I've only watched Episode 3. It gradually became obvious as the show progressed.

 

Shi An, like his brother, is an artist. Artists tend to get more in touch with what is felt than what is seen. He trusts his intuition and puts it into consideration when he acts or makes a decision. This also makes him more considerate of others (recall how he said that he knew about his mom's painful past but does not ask about it).

I just emerged from watching episode 13 and 14 with Sub and my eyes are darn fluffy from crying. Damn that Ryan’s story and how he got lost, but a mother never ever leave a child into unfamiliar place especially if she didn’t know anyone from there! I have been working with families for a long time, but even though a single mom don’t have enough finances she will never ever leave her child alone even he is 7 years old. But anyway their story is in the past and I know that she is really regretting losing her son for a long time. Thank God for DM of how she give Ryan support and return all this words as an advice, I can see how their relationship got stronger each day, but now that we are dreading their final test of DM’s mom abandoning YJ, I know it’s a sensitive issue and I wonder how the writer will present it from us. Thank God there are still balanced of happy scene like how DM teased Ryan about no kissing because she just had a coffee of how Director EOM followed her daughter to work and of course the blooming friendship of EG and DI. 

They finally resolve the conflict of EG and DM. I’m glad that EG has matured and accepted friendship and family over his own desire. 

SJ and her husband finally reconcile as well and the guitarist boy will finally debut lol! 

 

I don’t know why I’m cry like a baby when Ryan is tracing DM’s shadow. Finally he draws! All his uncertainties, insecurities melted away because of a certain lady, and when they said I love you to each other I’m lost. I know everyone is demanding a hot bed scene but that ending scene I wouldn’t trade it for the world because it’s too beautiful and perfect as if I’m watching a masterpiece. Thanks you tvn for giving us a beautiful love story. I’m going to miss this series soon, one of my fave drama of all time!

This also makes him more considerate of others (recall how he said that he knew about his mom's painful past but does not ask about it).

 

It's probably me then. It was obvious once Shi-an and Ryan connected via the paintings, as early as ep 3, that I knew they had to be related. Shi-an was inordinately interested when Ryan mentioned the painting, and his expression suggested he knew Ryan was lying about having bought the painting for a client. All his advances were tactics to get close to Ryan so that he could suss out this person and also help reconcile Ryan with his mum later down the road.

 

The more I think about Shi-an doing this, the less I like it. Ryan had no clue until it was all sprung on him in the gallery office. The realisation was devastating. His reaction time was virtually zero. In the space of an episode (and maybe a half), he was expected to come to terms with suddenly having a mother again and now a brother as well.

 

Shi-an had all the time in the world to decide if this man who was curious about Lee Sol's paintings was his brother (if at that point in time he did not know or only had an inkling), suss out his character and get to know him. If Ryan turned out to be a jerk, Shi-an could forget about it and move on. But Ryan turned out to be a sweetheart. Also, imagine if Ryan was purely curious about the painting from an artistic point of view, and not because he was related or had a resulting condition that affected his ability to paint...

 

I'm glad Ryan slammed the door on Shi-an in ep 13 because how else does one expect him to react? The nice idol that Deok-mi is nuts over just pulled the rug from under him, rather cruelly, in fact. Regardless of whether Shi-an knew, it was not a good move.

Agree with you completely. And yes, I had never expected that any other dramas can be better than WWWSK until HPL happened! :innocent:
