I think it's not only GS who will do a scene to JI but his dad will do the same !

even he doesn"t like JI but he won't accept she dumps his son

the same with GS.... I don't think he " really" loves JI he just " think" he loves her !

If he really loves her he won't do a scene if she loves another guy !

the same with SH; Seo Jin's husband !

"I don't love you but you must stay with me for ever" !

They are selfist haizzzzzzzzz !

Drama milk has a 1-8 (1-4) mini recap, and an episodes 9-10 (5) recap, see link.

 

https://www.dramamilk.com/one-spring-night-episode-9-and-10-recap/

 

The episode 5 recap is interesting, they have some of the car scene dialogue - that reads a bit different from the Netflix subs. I think it was @ck1Oz that mentioned this a few pages back.

 

So much angst! As much as I love it I need to step away and watch something fluffy, give my heart a rest.

Since everyone is talking about JI's fashion and outfit, here you go...

 

 

 

I guess outfit doesn't matter with this man... He saw JI's "hangover look" and he even find it attractive! :joy:

Regarding JI's clothes:  This director is big on color palettes and thematic moods, etc.  JI's clothes are neutral and bland, maybe expensive, but definitely not sexy.  You are right that they fit her job and her professionalism, but I think they represent the fact that she is not in touch with her sexuality.  Her love life is bland and uninteresting and so is her appearance.  Let's see if she pays more attention to  her appearance as she expresses her attraction to JH.  Probably will lean toward spring colors like the yellow sweater at the end of the last episode.

This scene with GS. This is really good. JI has bottled everything up in his heart and she explodes. The thing is JH just makes it clear for her. Yes it is still hard to cut all ties with GS since they have been part of each others lives for long, marriage certification is just missing. But her heart and happiness should be her priority not comfort and what others will say. I think next week episodes will be the final closure with GS and I really can't wait:D

Jung-In's Fashion

 

When I first watching the drama I thought it was "out of season". Even though it was set in spring the color worn were so dark and neutral that it seemed a weird choice for a spring/summertime drama.  It seemed more appropriate for a late autum/winter drama.

 

Then I realized a couple of things:

 

1- It isn't a rom-com but a drama.

 

2- it is a drama-working within social realism.  Except for Gi-Suk's father we don't have any ridiculously wealthy people and no wealthy women.  The characters look realistically middle-class.

 

3- The only person who carries the sense of "fashion" that usually show up on Kdrama is Seo-In. That makes sense because the has a public facing career and is a bit of a celebrity.  If they wanted more fun extravagant pieces Jae-In's character would be better suited for those kind of costumes than  Jung-In. 

 

4- The costuming for this is more akin to the costuming palate for My Ajusshi  and  I Heard it Through the Grapevine.  The characters in Grapevine were very wealthy so there were some very expensive costume pieces.

 

5- Costuming is meant to define character and I think Sung-In's clothes is a good reflection of who she is at this time. As the character changes her costuming might change--or not.  To my mind Jung-in in more fashionable costumes make for good product placement, not character development.  

 

6- I don't find Jung-In's costumed dowdy.  I find them understated.  There was one episode when she wore a stunning (beige?) micro-pleated skirt that I found impressive.

7- I sometimes watch Korean drama and are amaze at the costuming choices for officewear.  I just shrug and figure I don't know Korea as well as the costumers so I should just go with it.

GS really annoyed me as he considered JH as no thread because he has a son. Even Jae In was bothered by his remark and behavior. Furthermore, I got annoyed how he grabbed JI's hand in front of her flat. He was kind of "violent".

 

@Dhakra Yes, the episodes seem to confirm that LSI's superior will be involved in her fight. He does care about her. I have the impression that LSI decided to quit in order to force her husband to divorce her. She is the one who brings the money into their household. Once she quits, SH can no longer use her job for the application of the loan. LSI has always been his cash cow. SH is narcissic and delusional. He really thinks too highly of himself. However, little by little his flaws are witnessed by others. I hope, he ends up in jail.

 

JI was right to say that she had other reasons why she should break up with GS. JH was the one who had her eyes opened. She realized that something was missing in her relationship, then she got aware of her boyfriend's flaws. GS says that he would break up with his girlfriend if she cheated but actually the opposite will happen in my opinion. Since GS used the word "revenge" and "bruised ego", I think, this is going to happen.

 

While JH met GS, he could see how GS perceives JI. He doesn't really love her.

 

I don't think, GS's father is warming up to JI. I had rather the impression that the chairman wanted to give him a job and in exchange, there would be no marriage between their children. The father smiled, when he asked f they had broken up. Since JI's father is stupid, he thought that the chairman was creating more ties between the two families with this job but he didn't pay attention to the chairman's words.

I may be the only one, but there is nothing I like about JI's character.  Her only redeeming quality, IMO, is the way she treats the little boy.

@gm4queen Welcome:D. Hope you catch up and the technician does comes to fix your internet cuz this is the only thing we can't live without lol:sweatingbullets::mrgreen:.

 

Finally finished watching EP 6 and OMG, that ending:scream:, JH has finally lost it. I can't believe he did that while he was sitting next to GS. This drama makes me have a heart attack:skull:. The more he spends time with JI, the more we are learning he is not who we knew from the beginning. She is bringing out the worst part of him and I love it lol. It seems like we will have a small time jump after JI end things with GS. I love what she said in the preview. It basically means that she will stick with him no matter what, when she makes up her mind and that means a lot to JH. 

 

@bebebisous33 You are right, GS dad has no intention of accepting JI. His conversation with GS confirmed that after he jokingly asked if they broke up and saw GS expression. He knows what's up and that's why he invited her to have a meal with him for the first time. GS has no idea what he agreed to lol. He just dug his own grave. JI dad is indeed stupid. There is no such a thing as a free meal in this world. He knows GS dad is not very fond of his daughter yet he is still pushing this marriage issue. He is another person who is in for rude awakening. 

 

SA husband, son of b""""""h, he beat her up:rage:. Poor SA has no support because she has an idiot dad who sold her out, a mom that she can't tell the truth, 2 sisters that her scum-bag husband is threatening her with, no friends and a society who fail their victims. It's a good thing that she quit her job because he can't use her income anymore but I'm scared he is gonna harm her again when he finds out:crazy:. She needs to pack her bags now and move to JI apartment even if she makes up some excuse with her sisters. He might end up killing her before she even get divorce:tears:.

 

Regarding ES real mom, hopefully she doesn't try to claim being ES mom and cause a scene when she sees JH being truly happy with someone other than her. Now I really wonder what happened though. We always hear other people's opinion but never what JH has to say about the woman. His friends and parents think that he will go crazy if they mention her but JH doesn't look like he has any feelings left for her and is more worried about dating JI and caring for ES. Whether she had postnatal depression, her family not approving of JH, her getting threatened to leave JH and ES or getting an opportunity of a lifetime is not a reason to abandon your child. Let's see what she does when she appears.

 

Sorry for the long post lol. Thanks everyone for posting and sharing your opinions:heart:. Wednesday is so far:bawling:.

Thank you all for keeping this track so lively!!  Love to hear all your thoughts.  :wub:

 

The recent last time i enjoyed a melo is "when the smile left your eyes".  But that drama has a thriller aspect in it.  Which of course have many cliffhanger of situations.  1st time i watch a purely love story to have so many cliff hanger situations.  Its like someone might caught your feelings and we do not know how messy it might be if found out.  Brilliant!!  Keep it up!

Melo is not my favorite genre however if done right and it's realistic, then I'm all in. My recent one was also " When The Smile Left Your Eyes" and it was beautiful:bawling:. My Ajusshi was another one. But this one, I have no words to describe. I'm praying that the writer doesn't screw up this wonderful piece:persevere:

 

I'm happy for them with the ratings:wub:. A lot of people are watching it:heart:.

Sorry but it sounds so negative. Actually, JI is bringing JH back to life. He used to be more lively and brave, until he had that experience with Eun Woo's mother. What caught my attention in their different conversations is the way they express themselves. Both show their hurt and even explain how they feel and how the words and actions of the other affect them. Both describe each other as selfish aso but fact is, their exchange outlines that they reveal their true personality.

 

It also illustrates the equity in their relationship, while it was never like that with GS. The latter always saw himself superior to JI and had the upper-hand in their couple. He even declared to JH that after one month, the emotions started disappearing and this shows that GS had such an impact on JI. I have always said that JI had adapted herself to GS's wishes. It was also underlined with HS's words, when he said that GS talks about marrying JI but it doesn't look like he wants to marry her.  

 

As for LSI, her refusal to confine the abuse to someone points out that she has internalized SH's words who told her that if she got divorced, she would get involved in a scandal which would ruin her career. SH makes sure with these words that she connects her marriage to her career. However, LSI should realize that SH would be the target of the scandal, people would sympathize with her.

I usually watch melo and romcoms but i love romcoms more. I shy away from other genres like suspense thriller, legal, medical, sageuk/historical dramas. The last melo that i watch which really drained all my tears lol is the most beautiful goodbye. It was a 4 episode drama only but it is worth the watch. But the last full length melo i watched is encounter. It is okay but i did not get addicted as much as this drama(there is something in that drama that i really hate lol). If done right, until the last episode, this drama might be my all time favorite melodrama. Well i have been watching mostly 3 or more times per episode, raw, with subtitle then weekend marathon. And it keeps getting better when i watch it again. Am i the only one lol

So far, my favorite 2019 melodrama is Encounter. But this has come a close 2nd already,  it depends on writernim. 

 

I only watched this at first to be honest because of Jung Hae In. I loved him in Prison Playbook. I lost interest watching Something in the Rain after Episode 4 but I finished all episodes because of him :D I'm also curious what made HJM accept this drama after success of Light In Your Eyes. 

 

So given my not so good first impressions of the writer, I was hesitant to start this drama,  I told myself I will just watch first few episodes. But now, it seems I'm hooked. 

 

 

Unless writernim will fail my expectations on succeeding episodes. :sweatingbullets:

It must be difficult watching a drama when you don't like one 1/2 of the romantic lead.

What do you like about the story that is making you stick with it? If you are sticking with it.

I don't fully get Jung-In.  I understand her ambivalence with Gi-suk.  Sometimes the points she makes when talking to Ji-Ho are hard to follow.  I understand that she is being pulled in several direction.  Because she is less expressive than Ji-Ho she can be difficult to read.  The way she is stubborn with Ji-Ho by not choosing but wanting something that neither can choose is hard to follow.  I assume a lot is getting lost in the translation.

I think this is very insightful.  I think both JI and JH are causing eachother's previous selves to be resurrected. I do think that JI and JH are their true selves in front of each other. They don't work at performing a better self in front of each other and speak honestly to each other--even when their conversation if elliptical. JH points are easier to follow for me than JI.  Her point may be clearer to someone steeped in Korean culture.

 

I'm not sure why JI began dating GS.  Her explanation to her friend suggests that they never had a strong emotional or even sexual connection.  It almost seems as if she and he began dating because "why not"?

 

I don't think GS's dad "hate" JI.  I think he has no use for her.  GS's Dad views all relationships as utilitarian.  He sees people in terms of how he can leverage them to get ahead.  So since he does not see how JI can help him, GS, or the family he has no use for her.

GS is interesting.  I think in general he is conflict avoidant.  This is why he works at a bank instead doing music like he wanted to.  He didn't want to have conflict with his father.  I think JI is his way of taking a stand against his dad's vision for his life.  I wish at some point GS will articulate why he chose JI/ . Maybe he chose her because she is a fighter and he thought she could help him fight his dad --- or not.

I suspect LSI didn't tell anyone because in patriarchal societies, it doesn't matter what is done to them, it is always a woman's fault/failure when their don't work out.  No matter how crazy your husband is, you are suppose to control him and make him behave. :rage: I don't think she believes anyone will take her side.  Afterall her parents have proven to be unreliable.

@hushhh You are right that GS is trying to avoid conflict but only with his father. With JI, it is different because he always ensures that she feels guilty, that she is the bad person... he is definitely passive-aggressive. During their first conversation at the episode 5, it was clearly shown that GS was trying to blame her for not wanting the marriage, while in reality, GS is not really defending her in front of his parents. He is not firm in his decision which is outlined when he told her the same words than to his father: "I will handle it!!" Hence JI became furious, she realized his trick.

 

Fact is that GS is not handling anything, he always remains vague. He thought that with these words, JI would be appeased. This would have worked, if JI hadn't changed... yet JI is no longer the same. She is no longer the obedient "wife" accepting all GS's wishes. Even HS, an outsider, noticed that GS was not really desiring this marriage and he would have kept JI as his girlfriend for a long time.

What I love about the leads is that their characters always find a way to see the humor in their situation - the scene where JH is trying to explain his situation to JI but is interrupted by construction noise and at JI's apartment when her sister and his friend go buy drinks, leaving them alone - they see the complication but love that they appreciate the absurdity of it all too.

"All of these repressed feelings better explode into some truly passionate kisses later on this show, or I'll feel cheated."

 

i am not sure will that happen and if it did happen i am not sure my fluttering heart can take it.  Hahaha!

Oh damn, this just popped up in my mind:

 

Does SeoIn hold joint debts with her scumbug husband?   Because if he files for bankruptcy (let's be real, he's got no assets worth any real cash whatsoever and he's getting into MORE debt because GiSeok is gonna be stupid), SHE'LL be as good as bankrupt too! She better cut everything between them and RUN ASAP!

 

Gurl, you quit yo job, have yo evidence, KEEP YOUR MONEY IN YOUR OWN PERSONAL ACCOUNT, now just RUN before it is too late! Run and don't look back! Run to your parents house, hide with your sisters or plain just enjoy life in Jeju. Don't be dragged down by that ugly version of the Titanic! This is not a matter of saving face or time to be cowardly! This is a matter of saving your own life!
