The way they look at each other when they realize that they are both "psychos" who gave all their money away.. To be honest there are so many good scenes in this drama. They can center a whole episode about this fart joke and still get me teary in the end. I love this drama. It can turn from hilarious to emotional in a heartbeat and vice versa. 

I would love to see a second season. And that's not something i say often. Because i think many kdramas are too long. But in this case there is so much more to tell. We have so many great characters. And even though we often only see a glimpse of them they still feel alive and unique.

I'm especially impressed with Han-Joo's emotional intelligence. Instead of encouraging Jae-Hoon to change his locks and kick Bad Girlfriend to the curb once and for all, she is encouraging him to try and not hate her. It's just so... emotionally generous and kind towards another human being, and not just Ha-Yoon, but Jae-Hoon as well. She knows Jae-Hoon is incapable of being cruel.

 

This relationship is beyond painful to watch, and I hate how Ha-Yoon has practically become a horror-movie-cliche at this point - the mere sight of her name on his phone is enough to make me groan out loud, not to mention how she sits in the dark waiting for him every night - seriously, she's become Kathy Bates in the movie "Misery!" And yet, it's lovely when he embraces her. At this point, he's not her boyfriend, it's just one human being reaching out to another.

 

 

 

 

I do want to point out that I do recognize that Ha-Yoon is ABUSIVE. She physically abuses Jae-Hoon, she trashed his home and workplace, and she manipulates him and interferes in his relationships.

 

I know she cheated on him too, and that is deeply disrespectful and wrong, but it's not abuse. Aside from the cheating, there are MANY reasons he cannot be in this relationship anymore.

 

So if I knew someone like Jae-Hoon in real life, I would be telling him to change his locks and offering him a safe place to stay. But since this is a drama, I do appreciate how they're explaining how soft-hearted and gentle he is by how he has chosen to handle it.

 

Can't wait until finale week! I will miss this show.

Sep 28, 2019

Jung So Min will be making a special cameo appearance as JTBC’s Friday-Saturday drama “Melo is My Nature” comes to an end!

The episode of “Melo is My Nature” that will air on September 28 gave a sneak peek of Jung So Min’s cameo appearance in the teaser video. She worked with director Lee Byung Hun on the film “Twenty,” and happily agreed to appear in the drama despite her busy schedule. She will be playing the role of actress Sun Joo, who is under the same agency that Min Joon (played by Kim Myung Joon) moves to.

In the teaser, Sun Joo appears at a hair salon with Min Joon, putting So Min (played by Lee Joo Bin) on edge with how close they appear to be. Jung So Min smiles warmly as she says, “Do you need anything?” to which So Min replies, “Min Joon is mine,” making viewers curious to know how Sun Joo’s presence will affect So Min and Min Joon.

I can't believe this drama is about to end. I'm a slice of life drama lover. I enjoy this drama really well. I like the jokes. I like the character development. It's refreshing!

What a great and unique finale which fits for such an amazing show. That said i could watch a lot more episodes of this. That's the great thing about slice of life and so many great characters. You never run out of stories.

Ah I just watched the finale and it was so unexpected but so good! Episode 15 was also really good (that whispering scene was just so awesome!!! Loved it!)

 

@Fabbo - I also really wish we could have a season 2... oh well... I guess all good things must come to an end.

 

I still need to prepare my class for tomorrow so I will write more tomorrow.

I think the age of youth ratings were bad as well? So maybe there is hope?

Watch: Chun Woo Hee, Ahn Jae Hong, And More Bid Farewell To “Melo Is My Nature” While Filming Final Scenes

Sep 30, 2019

JTBC’s “Melo Is My Nature” has released a new making-of video of the actors filming their final scenes!

Kim Myung Joon starts off by saying, “During this long time, we were very happy.” Lee Joo Bin adds, “We started filming in spring, but now it’s already early fall. I feel sad about letting go of this character and project because I’ve grown so fond of them.”

Meanwhile, Yoon Ji On comments that he’s learned and experienced many things while filming, sharing, “Filming was so much fun that I thought, ‘Is it okay to be this happy?'” Jeon Yeo Bin also shares that the set was filled with love, saying, “Don’t go!” to the viewers while thanking them.

Han Ji Eun also thanks the directors, staff, and actors, while Gong Myung adds, “I think we finished filming with a happy heart.” The two actors ask the viewers to look forward to their future projects.

Finally, Chun Woo Hee and Ahn Jae Hong share their thoughts on the drama. Chun Woo Hee says, “Our chemistry was so good that it was referred to as a ‘crazy chemistry,’ so we’ll treasure those times and work hard to greet [viewers] with our next projects.” Ahn Jae Hong also expresses his gratitude to the staff and actors who’ve worked hard until now. He tries to wrap up by saying, “Thank you for supporting ‘Melo Is My Nature’ until now…,” but he hilariously cuts himself off after he realizes they haven’t officially finished filming yet.

I loved every second of this series! And I will miss them terriblely in my Sunday morning routine. 

 

EunJung's storyline was so heartbreakingly sad but at the same time very hopeful and powerful. 

Can I just say how adorable EJ and sangSoo are?! I'm glad writer-nim choose to give them a short but such a sweet time. For EJ it was just such a healing process to meet someone so quirky and weird like SS, he was someone she needed to move forward. In my imagination they will meet in Morocco and return together to Seoul... I love this pairing so much.

 

Leaving here my fav BGM. It will forever remind me of their conversations and the "ordinary" life scenes. 

 

 

 

 

 

I will definitely watch this series again, it's already on my re-watch list :heart:

I just finished watching it. I loved it.

 

I am sure the cast, production, and everyone else involved goes on to doing more great work.

 

It was original. It didn't follow convention. It really was a unique voice.

 

I'm sorry it didn't get better ratings. But it was truly a hidden gem. At the risk of sounding like an arrogant a**, I honestly think this show was just too sophisticated for the general audience.

 

Here's to hoping that the low ratings don't discourage original voices.

 

The best thing about the show is that it really holds up on re-watch. The language is so dense that there are definitely jokes and little moments I missed.

 

--

 

Random memories in no particular order:

 

- Jin-Joo's sister telling her mom what a crazy B Jin-Joo is (and her mom agreeing)

- Jin-Joo's parents savagely insulting her ("What does he see in you, anyway?")

- The fart song

- "Jesus Christmas!" (Dami)

- So-Min's delightful brattiness

- When So-Min and Min-Joon kissed, the one genuinely HAWT kiss in this show

- That nutty way Station Chief yelled, "Beom-Soo Yah!" after Jin-Joo karate chopped Beom-Soo

- The Bap-Noona parody! I die.

- Han-Joo cussing at Jae-Hoon while smiling

- "Oh, come on, toilet!" Han-Joo's boss while drunk

- Shampoo song! The many versions of the shampoo song!

- In-Gook's smart mouth

- Beom-Soo's drunken dance

- The Reply 88 shout outs

- Hyo-Bong and Solbi singing (OST 8!)

- Jin-Joo running through the streets screaming after sleeping with Beom-Soo

- Eun-Jeong's reaction when Sang-Soo (Director Yah) hugged that boy

- Eun-Jeong ripping Sang-Soo a new one

- Eun-Jeong being infinitely cool, at every moment

- Every scene with Eun-Jeong

 

And is it Solbi in OST 8? There was reference about her in an episode. But i thought it is Nam Young Joo singing the OST. She the female musician who also appeared 2 times in beginning and the end of the drama.

Be Melodramatic: Episodes 9-16 (Series review)

by SailorJumun

melodramatic-r3-00014.jpg

You guyssss, it’s over! What are we to do? Letting go of dramas is never easy, but it’s proving to be especially hard with Be Melodramatic. Mainly because I got too comfortable hanging out with our girls and their various friends and family, and I forgot that (duh) it had to end. But then, the slice-of-life genre is just that, a mere sliver of these characters’ lives, so I guess there is no true ending. It simply stops where it needs to be stopped, where the writer wants to leave us off.

All this time, our quirky writer Jin-joo has worked hard on her debut drama “It Gets Better When You Turn Thirty.” This being the actual story of her life (and the story we’ve been watching), it’s been tough for her to power through to the ending, too. She’s trying to figure out the best way to handle work, friendship, and love in fiction when she hasn’t quite figured it out in reality. As we see in this last half of the drama, it’s the odd combination of naivety and experience that make her thirties so great.

Chun Woo Hee Shares Thoughts On Taking On A Different Role Through “Melo Is My Nature”

Oct 20, 2019

de32db1a8e20431bab1500b240f3b834.jpeg?s=

In a recent interview following the end of “Melo Is My Nature,” Chun Woo Hee expressed her satisfaction for successfully challenging herself to take on a relatable role through JTBC’s “Melo Is My Nature” for the first time in her acting career.

Until now, Chun Woo Hee took on heavy roles that were rather difficult to portray. By playing Im Jin Joo in “Melo Is My Nature” and realistically portraying the life of a working woman in her 30s, Chun Woo Hee was able to gain sympathy from viewers and change her image to a more relatable one.

Chun Woo Hee said, “I’ve been buying trouble on my own. It wasn’t easy taking on such difficult roles, but I’ve also gained a lot from them.” She continued to explain, “A huge part of it is that those roles provide catharsis by letting me experience emotions that I don’t generally express in real life.”

She continued, “However, I can’t say that ‘Melo Is My Nature’ was easier than before just because it is a lighter genre. Acting is hard no matter what the role is.”

The actress added, “An actor chooses projects depending on how they are feeling and what they are interested in at the moment. Until now, I was drawn to unique roles that I had never heard of or seen before. However, I’ve recently been wanting to take on ordinary and realistic roles.” She further explained, “I coincidentally came across ‘Melo Is My Nature’ after ‘Vertigo.’ I liked that I could take on characters that are in the same age group as me, and it was interesting that the two characters have different attitudes even though they are both in their 30s and live in the same time period.” Vertigo is Chun Woo Hee’s latest film about an office worker who lives an uneasy life until she meets a special man.
