You forgot 7DQ -- she also had great chemistry with Yun Woo Jin (tho you might not like him but in my opinion he has good acting skill too).

 

But as of now, no one beats RYAN GOLD.

damn right!

Ryan~ His soft eyes, gestures, the way he speaks.. and even his every move, everything about him is so sweet.. Kim Jae Wook is getting his title of the romcom king from this drama. 


2. [+319,-52]
I really hope Park Min Young and Kim Jae Wook date in real life... They are born in '83, and '86, even their age difference shows their chemistry as a couple. ♡ I really like them^^ To add, that lion brat. ㅜㅜ I'm a man, but I think I'm falling for him too. ㅜㅜ
- [+53,-2]
I'm not sure if the two really have feelings for each other... But I think this is too delusional and burdensome for them.

Ah~ What should I do with Kim Jae Wook's corrupted beauty that's overflowing? ㅠㅠ He's just too cool. ㅠㅠ

IAbout comparisons with WWWSK:

To people who say the dramas are similar - are we watching the same drama?

1. The drama has made the leads here equal in everything to the greatest extent - while the power imbalance was obnoxious in WWWSK.

2. The childhood plotline seemed to be a cover for the power imbalance in WWWSK, and here it was a red herring which made us think the leads would break up but they didn't.

3. The character of Mi So was pretty bland there, and had no quirks. Deok Mi has a 3D personality and is a very sweet yet relatable character.

4. Brothers - the family bond there didn't seem half as strong as it was here

5. Lastly the male lead of WWWSK can't hold a candle to Ryan Gold personality wise. Not now, not ever.

 

Neither of it got resolved in the end. Even in the webtoon, after the secy gets pregnant, the ML reduces her responsibilities without asking her or consulting her on anything. It makes me mad whenever I think about it. That's why RG wins - DM is a partner who knows everything and has the right to take part in his decisions, while most of these chaebol-secy dynamic couples has the male lead acting like a guardian/parent to the female lead. Not. Charming. At. All.

I am not being harsh because I didn't like it - I am speaking as someone who was obsessed with WWWSK and read all of its webtoon till the end - before HPL came along and swept me off my feet.

 

Please recommend me more stuff - novels, webtoons, dramas, anything from this particular writer! I love her. I absolutely love her.

I love Mi So because she was very different from the rom-com leads I was used too, but she wasn't really fleshed out very well. In my preferred alternate universe, the show should have built on the potential of the first episode and made the story about Mi So finding out what she really wanted in life. In the end everything was buried under the supposed love between them, but I never really felt they connected as people, and they were never really equals in that relationship. Sure, the actors' chemistry was smashing, and Park Seo Joon did a super awesome job at making LYJ even likeable; at the hands of a lesser actor I would have loathed the character through and through. Ryan Gold is pretty much a cinnamon roll, too good, too pure for this world, but I think the K-drama world desperately needed him to counter the normalized toxic masculinity of every other male lead in its history. This is the standard of what women deserve; we can no longer accept the misogyny and disrespect built into male leads as romantic. :P Anyway, that went off the rails, but the point is I totes agree with your points. :lol:

I was upset yesterday because someone commented that HPL is copying WWWSK about the past connection and HPL did it with lesser quality :crazy: I mean.. it's a Korean drama! How many dramas in South Korea that the leads will be turned out to have past connection? Watch Kill Me Heal Me and the lead will have past connection too. :rage: Why always dragging HPL?? tsk.. Sorry for my rant :D

Hey, whoever said that this drama has to much kiss or too fluffy just don't get it. First of all, if U have a boyfriend like Ryan Gold, U are crazy if you just kiss him once or twice. Don't forget that Deok Mi is a fangirl (fangirl always love fanfictions) and we see for our selves that her imagination is wild (blindfold kiss imagination). She got a boyfriend that is amazingly handsome and her type, can be cute, very caring and overal has good personality (always saying sorry first), having the same passion in art, and understanding to her hobby as a fangirl: almost too good to be true. If I am Deok Mi, I'll also will shower him with love, hug and kisses. It is illogical if the writer opt for less skinship. I think other TvN Drama, Another Oh Hae Young also has a lot of kisses, true to the OTP character.

 

I do also think that people who comment that PMY character or the HPL plot is too similar to WWWSK just don't get it. WWWSK use childhood story as plot device to bridge different social status between the OTP (chaebol and her secretary) and due to his trauma YJ cannot be with other adult women: Miso is his one and only. While in HPL their bond is through the same passion: art, their childhood connection is not the reason that they are together now.

 

In WWWSK YJ chose to hide his identity for 9 years, sacrificing himself, so Mi So won't get hurt, but finally made a move coz he was not willing to loose her. In HPL nothing was kept secret for too long, when the pain from the past appear, they handled it together maturely. Between two dramas, there are vast differences in OTP characters and how they handled issues in their relationship.

 

I love HPL, but I also still love WWWSK (I love PSJ since One Warm Words). Both HPL and WWWSK in my opinion are good rom-com kdrama. And oh I also still loves Healer so much.

 

No wonder PMY, fastly agree to work in HPL right after WWWSK, because she was falling in love and cannot forget DM character. Here in HPL, Deok Mi is a bold girl who do not afraid to take the lead (Mi So is more pure, at one time she felt that YJ was moving too fast in their relationship). There are similarity between Deok Mi and Mi So, that they are a sweet cheerful girl who competent and professional in their job, but poor Mi So did not have a luxury of work-life balance, while Deok Mi does balance her work with her private life. I think PMY briliant in both roles.

 

Through her acting, I can see Young Shin, Mi So and Deok Mi as different personality. So kudos to her. PMY's acting shines more if she is paired with a co-star with a good acting skill (remember that trainwreck drama involving ever beautiful mr. Hand Towel_the most handsome of PMY's co-star_ where PMY's acting was wasted, and OTP was not believable). Ji Chang Wook, Park Seo Joon and Kim Jae Wook, all very handsome with good acting skill, so their collaboration with PMY are resulting in some of the best Kdrama OTP pairings, even initiate the fanwar between shippers

 

About comparisons...you guys said what's in my mind

Spoiler

I think ppl cant help comparing cuz it's PMY and it's drama with the same genre... Many still see her as Secretary Kim who's also very competent in her work... She rocked that role so it's a...compliment? But I said it before in this thread, that Deokmi is a different girl. She's sweet as Miso...but she has some sass and sarcasm =)) She pursues her own dreams and isn't afraid to take a lead in her relationship. I really loved WWWSK I read all of the webtoon chapters even before the drama ended =))) PSJ did such a marvelous job to portray Young Joon so he becomes rather silly and likeable... like one of the soompiers mentioned, until the end, there's still obvious power inequality between them. He still makes decisions for her, instead of talking to her... and I'm sad Miso doesn't really find her dream (though it's written as if being his secretary is her dream anyway).

 

What I don't like when ppl comparing both dramas is because some of them hated HPL cuz the pairing isn't their ship (my pet peeves about drama shipping... I was also upset about ppl shipping ERIC and Hyunjin then badmouthed Eric when he announced his REAL marriage #bleh)... Their dislike on the pairing or ppl shipping Jaewook and Minyoung make them nitpicking HPL and put it down below WWWSK. Sure, rating-wise, it's lower. But it's not flopping in any sense (it creates buzz and new recognition+love for KJW as an actor). Story-wise...name a drama (particularly romcom) that has no childhood connection...almost none. Even HEALER had one :sweatingbullets: The way those dramas handle this childhood connection are also different... So, it's too far-fetched to be compared tbvh.

 

I don't like that some people used WWWSK as a comparison to HPL just because of that stoopid shipping thing. What drives me mad is also the fact that some of them badmouth Kim Jaewook... He's got so much unwarranted hate when he's just acting and bringing Ryan Gold to life marvelously... (in Deokmi word: I CAN'T HOLD IT IF YOU BADMOUTH MY BABY -- lol) 

 

About skinship...I can't believe my irl friend also complains about too much kisses and she thinks it's because the rating is bad, so the writer has to sell kisses and she also says 'it's more than WWWSK...like GOSH...it's a TWO DIFFERENT DRAMAS.

 

Different person different opinion... I won't be complaining about mature and natural skinship between couples...and most kisses in this drama are good anyway with context and emotions...no dead-fish kisses lol

Looks like a bit swollen. Too much kissing? :yum: Maybe someone bit it. :joy: (I'm looking at you, Deok Mi!) or maybe it was bitten by mosquito like Geon Woo's eye. :lol:

Ryan is an angel. The morning after is adorable, and Ryan is hilariously bad at cooking. Helping Deok-mi apply lipstick is a lovely act of intimacy. I liked the scenes of him with Deok-mi's mother, and also that chat with Eun-gi. The birthday gift was a nice touch, but a bit rushed. Everything else not Ryan didn't register with me (okay, I lied, cuz everything else that was not Ryan made me angry).

 

Anyway, Kim Jae-wook looked hot in that beige shirt towards the end. His outfit during the chat with Eun-gi was also nice.

Viki.com. They have a feature called Learn Mode. Unfortunately for me, it doesn't work on my Roku streaming TV device as I like watching on a bigger screen. It only works on the web and iOs.

Love the analysis below, credit to OP on tumblr https://lovingquotesthatspeakmymind.tumblr.com/post/185226309324/thoughts-on-ep-15-come-to-think-about-it-for-the

 

“Come to think about it, for the time when I couldn’t draw, perhaps it was meant for me to find something that was more precious. To me, it was you that I found.” - Ryan Gold to Deok Mi 

I think most of us would have anticipated this “childhood stories” concept quite early into the drama. I suspected it too. 

But what Ep 15 did well was that it kinda made this “childhood concept” less cliché. 

  • It’s true that Deok Mi and Ryan knew each other from young. However, at the age of 7 both of them had a bad experience that traumatised them for the rest of their life. 
  • For Deok Mi, the loss of her younger brother due to car accident caused her to forget most of her childhood even the happy moments. Because of the vague memories she have, she gets nightmare too but she can’t remember it well. 
  • For Ryan, as we all know, he was abandoned at orphanage by someone (as expected was Deok Mi’s mom). This rather vivid memory constantly gave him nightmare and was part of the reason why he couldn’t draw.

Tbh, the concept of childhood friends for Ryan and Deok Mi in this drama is not main focus (at least from my POV). Rather it was the fact that in the process of finding out his childhood trauma and overcoming his inability to draw, Ryan got to meet Deok Mi who was the total opposite of Ryan even though both of them can no longer draw. While Ryan suffered due to his inability to draw again, Deok Mi made use of her talents to live as a fansite master and remained cheerful. And even though they might have known each other when they were younger, that wasn’t the main reason why they chose to stay with each other despite knowing the truth. 

They stayed with each other because Deok Mi has been a constant pillar of support for Ryan. She was there when he needed someone to hug and tell him everything will be alright. She was there when he had doubts about his mom. She was there when everyone, including himself, knew that he can no longer draw but she encouraged him bit by bit. To Deok Mi, Ryan was someone who embraced her “idol/fandom/fansite master” side without any judgments. 

And indeed Her Private Life really showed us what a mature relationship is all about - COMMUNICATION.

Without that, relationship is really as fragile as you can see in any other kdrama with lots of misunderstanding and childish arguments (oops but it’s true)

Which one is Mr hand towel?? 

I think she's referring to Lee Min Ho and City Hunter. Lol. City Hunter wasn't bad, but I hate how the OTP was treated there. Romance poorly done, and watching Healer before I watch CH just made CH's failings even more apparent to me. 

 

I say this as someone who loved WWWSK, the ML in HPL is so much better. The romance also was more mature (not R18 mature lol) and grounded. WWWSK felt more like a fairy-tale in an office setting, where a Cinderella-like Kim Mi So is swept away by the rich handsome prince and was a very passive recipient towards his affection. I love HPL because it was an equal romance. One did not court or chase the other, no courtship happened. It was just two people who found themselves in a peculiar spot (fake relationship) and slowly connected with each other, then fell in love. Remember, RG first thought DM was lesbian, so he connected with her more as a person before he was attracted to her as a woman. That made his love deeper IMHO. The romance was more realistic and mature than anything WWWSK had. 

 

If you're in the mood for a fairy-tale romance, WWWSK is definitely the better choice there. But for me, HPL beats it as the best and my favorite rom-com. Doesn't mean WWWSK is bad, it just means it's second place. Lol. Can't judge the ratings too, because PSJ is by far the bigger star than PMY and KJW. WWWSK rode the popularity of PSJ which was likely why it was such a ratings powerhouse. HPL had to "take the risk" with PMY "carrying" KJW in the beginning, given that KJW is in uncharted territory for him as an actor (and we all know how many IG followers he had prior to the drama).

This is normal in Kdrama. They will shoot until evening or sometimes until 7 pm  on the last day before hand in the final tape to the editing team. If you want to get a glimpse on how the industry work watch Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo drama Worlds Within. It tells on how the production teams works like.

Just curious why do you think PSJ is by far the bigger star than PMY and KJW? I would agree if you say popular but IMHO  PSJ IS not the bigger star...

I agree. PSJ maybe the more popular one but he is not the bigger star. Both PMY n KJW are his sunbae. They have been working hard and has great dramas under their belt. 

 

PSJ just got lucky that he rise to stardom early as he is talented and gets great drama. So yah i agree he is the more popular maybe but that doesn’t mean he is bigger or better than pmy or kjw
