This picture at the beginning of each episode doesn't just represent the title of this drama. To me, it also gives us clues about the story. The blossoming tree, a cherry tree, embodies the blossoming love between our leads, JH and JI because the cherry blossom is often a symbol of love and passion. We often see in K-dramas scenes where the main couple walks under cherry trees in bloom reinforcing the idea that this couple is fated to be together.

 

Besides this picture not only marks the start of their love, it is also illustrating that their love is bringing new sides of our characters. JI is changing, even her friend noticed that she smiles more and is more creative thanks to her new feelings. It was as if JI has come back to life and before, she was like hibernating. She was not really herself in reality but she had no idea. It is the same for JH who was so traumatized that he only worked and played basket ball during his spare time. Now, for the first time he started flirting with JI, he is definitely more active.

 

Finally, since their love is connected to a season, the spring, I would say that their love is natural and it can not be controlled by humans and society. GS won't be able to stop it... His fight will be pointless, nevertheless he has no idea about it.

 

The second aspect in this picture is the moon. I have the impression that their love is also very discreet and even secret because of the presence of the moon, since forbidden lovers usually meet during the night. I am not saying that their love is forbidden, far from it, it is just that it will grow unnoticed by the others. Notice that until now, no one is aware of their connection. Sure, in the next episode, her friend will see JI with JH, yet I am quite sure that JI will never tell her what really happened between her and JH. We know from the preview that JH will distance himself from her but I doubt that this move will make JI change her mind... like f. ex. she accepts GS's proposal. To me, it will have the opposite effect as JI is someone who wants to be respected and not be forced to do something. She wants to make her own decision.

That was beautifully written @bebebisous33 and accompanied by @gm4queen sakura picture, I feel like I'm in heaven... :innocent:

 

So glad, that the rating is good @Chellsee. At first glance this drama look too noir / artistic for me. Normally I seldom go for this genre. But somehow the drama calling me to watch it. And it didn't dissapoint.

 

I'm looking forward how the drama will tackle the moral vagueness of relationship. As I'm getting older, I don't tend to see all in black or white anymore, or totally right and wrong. Sometimes things can go in the middle. So I kind of understand Jung In inner battle. 

 

Like @Dhakra said, the drama is not grandiose but more quiet and calm with their story telling. I thought it won't attract many people to watch. But I'm happy that now it's popular. 

 

And like most of you had said, the OST is to die for.... :heart:

And I love this way of calm storytelling, "Mother" and "Secret Love Affair" did the same and it is such a pleasure to watch. 

 

Yeah, it is, can't wait to see it pop up on my daily Kpop store discovery routines. :D

Thanks  for sharing ...It seems that GS cant let go of JI .I think thier relationship is getting a bit colder since JH's existence..where as JI and JI friendship is blossoming to something else..looking forward to this week's episodes.

JI is emotions are confusing her..with JH around..

I hope JI will not follow the same route of emotions as that of Jin Ah in SITR. JA was confused what to do with her mother's objections of her relationship with Joon Hee. 

 

I hope JI will be more assertive what she wants in her life although it can be very confusing. Breaking away from a longterm relationship is very difficult. Although you are not married yet, but the person was already a part of your life for a long time. You may not be head over heels in love but it's still so hard to cut off all ties. It's like breaking the monotony, the old habits. 

 

This drama has so many life lessons for viewers. I hope writernim can present it well.

Yes, I thought that JA was too obedient and not assertive at all therefore I dropped this drama as I couldn't relate to the female protagonist.

 

However, right from the start, JI seems to be different as she is so brutally honest and direct. She doesn't fear her father and she has a very good relationship with her sisters which was not the case in SITR. She is even very protective of her younger sister, had no problem to lie to her parents and I suspect that once the truth is out, she will do anything to protect her sister. She has no problem to deal with pressure... I sense that her problem is more internal: what is she feeling? what does she want in her life? In my opinion, she is now more confronted by existential questions (the importance of love in a marriage, the importance of marriage, aso).

I am here @bebebisous33!!! Aqui estoy!!!

I'm so excited for this drama! I have been anticipated it since it was announced! It's just my kind of drama, and I decided I will forgive the writer for what she did to part two of the otherwise perfect SITR. A part of me is still fearful of what she can do, but I will assume she has learned from SITR.

 

It's intriguing how the first two episodes exploded quietly. The drama hasn't received the best promotion, and the leads were the ones creating the interest. But the thread has become more lively and there is good buzz in Korea. They even won the popularity contest and stole the crown from my Rabbit couple! I ran home from school to catch the first episode and was blown away. Episode two was just as spectacular.

 

I love how normal and down to earth it feels. No chaebols, no idols in the cast, NO IDOLS IN THE CAST, just a bunch of people in their thirties and over about to get on the ride of their lives when she comes in the shop to buy hangover medicine.

 

Spring in this drama is also a motif used represent rebirth. I noticed that there were some scenes that were shot in the dreariness of winter. Plants and animals still exist in winter, but animals are in hibernation and plants are hidden in the soil. They are half dead in winter as they wait for their alarm in spring to wake up to create new life and come alive. I am taking this to mean that Jeong In and JH are in the winter of their lives with JI's functionally dead relationship and JHs repressed desires as he focuses on his child. They are now moving to their Spring with that initial meeting.

 

I also love how the two characters are so..... common. A librarian and a pharmacist. It was very deliberate. Their clothes and hair are normal and average. I love chaebols and the tropes they inspire, but I need these "real" dramas.

 

For the first time in a long time, I have rewatched episodes of a drama while it is airing. And I will watch them again before tomorrows new episodes!! 

 

As for predictions, I have none except that JHs baby mama is definitely coming back. They did not give us that information about how she left him for nothing! I think it's too early for me to know GSs character arc, and I hope he doesn't become bad just for the sake of advancing the storyline.

 

Best scene: When they stared at each other on the basketball court!! OMO!! That was fireworks!! Does anyone have that scene on gif?

@africandramalover I think that GS won't act the entire time as a typical second lead... I have the impression that even GS will come to experience spring as well. I mean, so far, he was hibernating like JI and JH: his whole life was focused on his work. And at some point, he will realize that work and a comfortable life can not be the true goals in life. To me, just like JI, he will realize that a true relationship needs feelings: love and warmth... Deep down, he already knows it as he doesn't want a business marriage/marriage of convenience, yet he has never realized the importance of work/love in a couple. Actually, people need to work on a relationship, there is no guarantee that a relationship will last forever.

@tok-soompi thanks for the preview:wub:.

 

from what I understood from the preview, Did JI said to GS, " Oppa, should we just get married?". Did she decided to go with the flow? This is not gonna end well if she got GS expectations high like this:(. Also at the end of the preview, she looks angry or frustrated on the phone with JH. Do you Chingus think he is trying to end the "friends" relationship because he might have heard about the marriage happening? Or because he won't be able to control his feelings and won't let her go if he sees her when she told him let's meet over the phone?

yeah i heard her saying marriage word but in what tone? and why all of sudden when previously she clearly stated her opinion about marriage well we have to wait to see it.In the older preview jiho did said"i ended it before i get crazy as i know it will be difficult for that woman"-something like that? and when giseok met him at his pharmacy i think he said yes they will be getting married to jiho(jiho asked the question i guess?).Ohh dear its gonna be a roller coaster ride :sweatingbullets: with all heartbreaks!.Ahh someone on insta trans the last part of the new preview that jiho said- if you come to me now you won't be able to able to go back to jung in,i am not sure cause i used google trans :D.

@lu09 @Pmyonly Yes, I understood the preview like this too. Now, my speculation is following:

- GS realizes that there is a connection between JI and JH that's why he grabs JI's hand in the car and later visits JH announcing that they are getting married

- Hearing about the marriage, JH decides to cut ties with JI over the phone which leads JI to question if she should just go with the flow (Should we just get married?) but her question reveals her doubts at the same time. She is definitely confused.

- However, I sense that JI might discover that GS met JH without her knowledge and realize that GS acted behind her back. 

 

Actually, I don't want her to remain too long uncertain, just like JH, because both will face a lot of trouble in the future together. I am expecting her to break up with GS at the end of this week. Moreover, her sister' s story is quite important because she is the face of the news and her husband is quite famous.

@bebebisous33 agree with what you said and I really hope they won't drag it for long as there are lots of issues that need to be solved.Obviously she won't just part away from giseok this fast but hope she realises it soon whether she wants to get married with giseok or move on from the relationship leaving behind her confusing thoughts.

 

@anyeze you are most welcome :D(cr to uploaders)
