Somebody knows if this drama has 12 or 16 episodes? Where can I get that information.

I don't want only 12ep :(

Based on Asianwiki, it said it will be 16 episodes. That's the only info I found.

Thanks  @liltash85 I searched too in korean wikipedia https://ko.wikipedia.org/wiki/평일_오후_세시의_연인

It seem will be 16 but in the rating record only has 12 (until aug 10th). Channel A Official page I didn't find any information about it. It miss many scenes from japanese version. There's a long way to go yet. Crossing fingers.

Just watch a few mins of ep 6. I like JE's prolog "an affair is not love."

 

love is not always about being happy and satisfied. in my belive loving is sacrifice. wkwkwkwkw.. if you are ready to die than that is love. lol. while people doing affairs to find happiness and satisfaction. so.. 

 

Humans are social creatures. our basic need is to socialize. we need to talk with others, doing things with others, need to share feelings and etc. after marriage we could only be close to 1 people and share all of those social needs with only 1 people. if we lucky our partner/spouse understand this. at least in theory. lol. but if not, it will be like 'love affairs in the afternoon kdrama.' there will be room for other who comes and fill those needs. the need to talk, to be loved, to share feelings, and etc. 

 

I think bird husband, SA husband, and JW's wife can not understand this. that was why I said they need to consult to psychiatrist. :joy:

K nets comments quite spot on . Think they got the idea of the drama 

https://melohwa.blogspot.com/2019/08/love-affairs-in-afternoon-eps-9-10.html?m=1

 

Article: Naver 'Love Affairs in the Afternoon' Ye Ji Won, the end of an affair... will it still result in a divorce?[Ep 9]


1. [+53, -4]
I don't think this drama encourages adultery. They don't portray people who commit adultery as happy people, but unhappy people anyway. Despite the storyline, I think this is a well-made drama. It's interesting.

 
2. [+26, -3]

Even if it's a drama, I hope the characters will be punished for it. That way, those who intend to cheat on their spouses will think twice.

 

 

3. [+6, -0]

An extramarital affair is not love. It is as disgraceful and inflicts great pain to others. An affair is an affair, please do not romanticize it. 

 

 

4. [+5, -0]

It's just so sad.

 

 

5. [+3, -0]

Extramarital affairs in storylines get cursed at. But when people look at their husbands, they would regret getting married in that situation too.

 
6. [+0, -0]

I like Ye Ji Won's detailed acting. It's not right to have an affair... I just feel sorry for her.

It's wise to get divorced before you have any children and live with someone you love, rather than leading a marriage life without love.
 
2. [+58, -0]
It's more detailed and affectionate than the original Japanese version. The cast is awesome. The cinematography, OSTs and acting are great ^^
 
3. [+33, -0]
I don't get extramarital affairs and hate it ㅠ but while watching this drama, the moment I Lee Sang Yeob grabbed Son Ji Eun hand from behind, I went "Ah~" and teared up. Am I rooting for the two because of how detailed their acting is and their desperate love? ㅠ I hate myself.
 
4. [+32, -1]
A salt doll asked the sea, "Who are you?" The sea answered, "If you want to know me, dip your feet into me." "Salt doll, who are you?" the sea asked. "I'm the sea. And I am you." I really liked the narration about the salt doll. I did a search and it's a fairytale~ There is a book about salt doll ^^
 
5. [+11, -0]
This is really daebak...
 
6. [+9, -0]
It was heart-wrenching to see them earnestly longing for each other and their eyes filled with tears. If only they had met earlier... It's a extramarital affair drama but I personally think it'd be good if they find happiness. 
 
7. [+7, -3] 
Both should just file for a divorce and try living with each other~~~ The moment they get married, they will face reality again. They aren't even single. Why are they searching for love after marriage? ㅎㅎ
 
8. [+3, -0]
If you get caught red-handed doing that, it'd be daebak.
 
9. [+1, -0]
It's my first time falling for a male actor. Lee Sang Yeob, fighting~♡ Actress Park Ha Sun is so pretty and her acting is cool~

Just watched eps 9 and 10 and caught up reading your posts. Like some of you, I watched the Japanese version of this drama. I will say that I am enjoying the Korean version. I don’t know if I am wishing for a “happy” ending. I think I’m wishing for an ending that makes sense for all the couples. 

Right now, I am having difficulty sympathizing with CSAs husband, DHYs ex-wife, NMY, and JEs husband. But I am feeling so sad for SAs girls.:tears: They are likely impacted the most, with perhaps life- long consequences for both. I hope that CSA and her husband find a co-parenting solution to minimize the effects of their bad choices. I say “their” - because they are both at fault. The husband and his pretending he’s a victim - yeah, no! What with the curator moving in their house, ick! 

I’m not sure if I would call what’s happening between JE and JW as “love” yet. I think what they have at the moment is empathy towards each other. They can understand each other, what each other is going through. Honesty and openness with each other moving forward are advantageous if they are to continue seeing each other. But how realistic would that be, if even now they are not honest and open with their current relationships?

I’m excited to read here that there will likely be 16 episodes (?) !! Perhaps we can see CSAs husband getting together with DHYs ex-wife? They seem to have more chemistry..

lol! PHS always so shy & giggly after each kiss scene . How did she manage to do the bed scene ? :lol:

So Sang Yeob & PHS did a pictorial for Grazia to promote the drama & there’s some BTS for it as well. These two have great chemistry which is why I think I’m sold on their pairing :lol:

Took me quite a while to finally get back as real life made incessant demands. Nonetheless, in between the slight breather that I have, some thoughts that I've been meaning to put down before we start the episodes for this week.

 

I begin to wonder if I have almost reached the end of my tether as far as sympathy goes for the two couples, with Ep10 rubbing me the wrong way in more ways than one.

 

I really ached to see CSA being punished and humiliated by her husband for her infidelities, but much as I dislike her sanctimonious, callous husband, I do feel that this outcome was something she brought upon herself as well. Nonetheless, what was hardest to watch is the grief of her children - the bewildered sadness of her younger child, and the betrayed fury of her older one. I understand CSA's desolation when even her daughter lashed out at her, but what hurt most was when Ah Jin rushed out the door frantically upon realising her mother walked out of the house after her father's cruel words, only to see her at the phone booth, phoning her lover, if only in her mind. In that moment, I understand completely the sense of betrayal she must have felt - that when their entire family is just about fallen apart, the one person that her mother thought of was still not her children who are treated as collateral damage, but the man who was partially instrumental for the chaos in their home, which basically shows that he takes precedence in her mother's heart over them. The last nail in the coffin was her decision to walk out the door, leaving her children behind, to be with the man she loves. Does she feel that it is for the best for all concerned since her husband despises her and her children are upset with her, but is it really for them or for herself? I do not pretend to be able to understand her in this matter - perhaps she feels she has to leave them because she has no means of supporting them in her situation, but what kind of message is she sending her children with her walking out the door, out of their lives into the arms of her lover? Can she really stay away as a mother? Put in the same shoes, I won't be able to bear being separated from my children. 

 

I guess I am in the extreme minority here but when SJE and YJW separated and resumed a semblance of normalcy in their respective marriages (or almost-marriage), I actually hope for them to cherish what they have and work towards saving their marriages. In particular, JCK's change in attitude towards his wife is an opening that should have been grasped, and hopefully together, they will be able to rise from the disastrous 5 years, and finally build a foundation for a happy marriage. Likewise, YJW too - since the man still could not even bring himself to stand up and fight for his own freedom, allowing NMY to cut his words short, I don't begin to believe that he will be able to do the same for SJE. Hence, the handholding during the photo-taking session leaves a bitter taste in my mouth - that they would actually do that in the presence of the very people they had and are betraying, which in turn crumbles any well wishes I initially had for them. If they really believed that they do love each other after all, the very least they could do is be upfront with their respective spouses and come together at last, free from their marriages. The very persistence in resuming a covert affair while continuing to lie and break their marriage vows, is frustrating to watch.

 

In any case, we shall see how the reignited affairs play out this week. From the looks of the preview, there will be more hell to pay, and I am really beginning to doubt if there will be any happy ending for anyone after all.

My stream is really bad tonight 

after the hand holding , JW managed to get JE somewhere quiet , stairwell . Think both had excused themselves to use the washroom Both in tears & hugging . ( some really great acting there by LSY) . Their respective spouses chat 

 

JW & MY back home . She put up the pic of the 4 of them . JW looked terribly down cast . She asked him what’s wrong ? Are you not well? . He said no & was about to tell her how he felt but just could not bring himself to do it . ( my Gosh , jW pls pluck up some guts )

JE in bed ..thinking of what happened earlier .

Spoiler

 

She gets a text from JW who asked her if she’s asleep . Seeing that the hubs is sound asleep , she goes to the living room to call him . He picks up her call in the balcony  . ( i miss a lot of what was said due to the lag in my stream ) but JE was in tears as he spoke . MY sees JW talking in the balcony. She knows JW is not happy & probably having an Affair

Artist ex Wife comes to the apartment. SA lets her in. Even makes her a cup of tea . But the conversation was not pleasant . The ex Wife I think is telling her off but I think SA hits back saying she & Artist are already divorced JE 

 

Artist comes back & see the two women quibbling . Anyway he spoke to her separately. She left in a huff after that 

 

bird Husband & SA hubs bump into each other & had some small talk 

 

Artist drawing SA , both seem happy 

 

bird Husband goes to bed , tried to approach JE who seemed uninterested & all curled up not happy with him touching her . He senses that . So just rolls back to his side , tells JE about SA who left for another man 

 

SA girls having a hard time adjusting without mum. Especially the little girl . JE bumps into them as they were going to school.  

 

Oh my! the curator is putting her moves on SA hubs ...putting her hands around his neck & pushing herself against him . 

 

They show SA ex lover ( gym Instructor) thinking about what the husband said . Feeling worried he texts her asking how she is but of course hubs still has her phone & scoffs at the message
