Usually after ending a drama series, I can start another series after 1 day of grief. But it has been 2 days and it feels like this post CLOY grief is gonna stay for another month :P which is a good thing so that I can wean off my K-junkie habit.

 

I'm really loving RJH's and Seri's well written characters. Any other dramas to recommend where the male lead AND female lead is as endearing as them?

 

(Side note: I really like the leads in I'm not a Robot.)

 

Anw, reflecting on the time when RJH went to SK to find Seri, I found it a little bit uncomfortable that she was spending way too much on RJH like a sugar mummy.

 

As a viewer, I reflected how is it that RJH on the receiving end didn't seem uncomfortable at all? And how is it that Seri goes all out without a worry that his pride will be hurt.

 

Then I realised the flaw is not in the written characters, but rather, it is how my perception has been skewed by the countless K dramas I watch where rich girls hurt men's pride, and only the men should spend lavishingly on the females.

 

Then it hit me that's how much RJH and Seri truly loves each other -- to the extent where RJH's pride isn't hurt despite Seri forking out money for all his coats and even the yearly music scholarship (must be a bomb)

 

And that Seri is comfortable with RJH, and trusting in his character that he won't be hurt by her strong alpha female qualities.

 

This is why I was so invested in this couple because both of them are equals. Both of them are alphas in their fields, and have equal footing in their relationship. In times of need, they don't feel threatened/lesser by the other. Rather, both of them RESPECTS each other's strengths and motivate each other to improve on their weaknesses.

 

In NK, Seri is the (typical poor girl) who met a Chaebol. And in SK, RJH is the (typical next door guy) who met a woman with strong personalities.

 

Yet, even though both of them were stripped of their wealth/power in each state respectively, neither of them felt threatened, but rather, fleshed out their instinctive self-sufficient traits to find different ways to show their love for each other (Seri learning to pawn to gift RJH a watch, and RJH getting rings even though he is broke in SK)

 

Because of CLOY, goodbye to the days of financially poor females feeling unworthy to Chaebol-boys, and financially poor boys feeling threatened by strong females.

 

Need I say more how much I love this pair of beautifully written characters???

On point! This is what i had in mind since i started watching the show and what also attracted me to start watching it... After x number of dramas where the guy is have it all finally came a drama where the lead girl is also powerful and rich.

Lol, those points were my primary reasons for taking a break from kdramas. This drama is my first in three to four years. 
 

I really like the use of IU’s OST for this scene. 
 

 

@luvcrabbieshinhwa yes, I miss the old days when people also subbed the OSTs. I remember those days when I was waiting for WithS2 subs which were available after 1-3 weeks. Such a memory. Btw.... Shinhwa changjo?

 

The following tweet represents my feeling.

A recurring wish among us here was that RJH and SR would fight for their love at some point - I realized it did happen at the end and I'm really happy about it.  The pre-set text messages that RJH sent SR last about 1 year (probably would have been more but for the limit), the old RJH would never do that.  He'd want her to be able to move on and date other men (or at least he'd say so). So in a way I do feel content that after all they've been through, they finally mutually agreed to hang on to each other no matter what and find each other again.  I wish we would have been able to see SR's thoughts as she received those texts - happy yes, but did she clue in on the prospect of meeting him again, or think about it?  Anyway, just a thought I had.

 

To all the fans feeling the withdrawal, I think a good mantra would be, RJH and SR did so well.  We are so proud of them.  (SR's first words when RJH woke up at the hospital lol).  Somewhere in k-drama land they live happily ever after and once in a while we'll think back about them feeling positive vibes.  In time we'll move on but they'll be a lovely memory for us!  (Fully aware these are k-drama characters but hey, you know what I mean.)

My major complaint with the ending was that the ducklings weren't part of it. But as I re-watch the series, I think an important theme is destiny. The sort of destiny that makes the impossible possible. SR said goodbye to JH and the ducklings so many times, but destiny always brings them together. And this time, they didn't even say goodbye cause they know they didn't need to. 

 

I think an ideal ending would have been one that involved some sort of a reunification but I understand why the writer couldn't show that due the political tensions between the countries and the popularity of this drama, it may have caused issues. But I'm glad they mentioned the idea of it several times and included SR's steadfast belief that the reunification would eventually happen. Like SR said in the beginning of the show, her convictions and choices have always been right.

How to move on from CLOY?! :bawling:

 

Episodes in NK in the first part for me were somehow more magical... i think that the first part of the drama is more charming... those scenes were shot beforehand and i just love seeing the more simple Seri living her everyday life beside RJH...

 

Ep12 is the episode that really made me cry and laugh so hard. Like i cried 4 times in one episode :joy: It's probably my most fave episode... especially that almost proposal to Seri when they were drinking... :heartbreak:

 

I also want to add that their OSTs are so sooo good!!! My favorite is The Photo of My Mind by Song Ga In. That song is just so beautiful and it always remind me of their separation in episode 9. IU's song is my top 2... then Crush's song. Hehe.

I was just checking out the BTS video of Ep 16 on the TVC channel and was AMAZED at the passionate and very expressive postings at the comment section! This drama really really captured the heart of audience, both in SK and internationally!

Did everyone here went and posted there? LOL!!

I find this comment particularly cute, funny and lovely all at the same time.

5 most underrated scenes (episode 10-16) for me

 

1. SR said thank you to Soo-chan. This particular scene shows what a great person SR is and how her “adventure” in NK helps her to be a better person. 

Crash12-33051.jpg

 

2. SR taught the F5 and RJH how to make a wish. It’s such a heart-warming scene for SR, especially because she’s always been alone by herself.

 

3. RJH’s farewell to the F5. When RJH told the F5 that he’s going to do something and asked them not to leave SR’s side, it’s a memorable moment for me. They were aware of his plan and I appreciate them for respecting his decision (to go by himself). It also shows how a great leader RJH is. 

 

4. SR passed out outside the interrogation room. I really like this scene because it shows how strong SR is. Ah I really love YSR despite all her flaws.

 

5. The F5 used their body to protect each other. Need I say more? 

 

Anyway, I think this drama could be their last project together. It’s very rare in SK to have a number of different projects with the same cast and I think SYJ and HB don’t want to get stereotyped. :tears:

If you think about it, Seri is actually living a simple life with JH now, on top of a hill facing a lake in Switzerland!! All they do is make love, sleep-in, have breakfast in bed, go for picnics, cook dinner together and then make love again.... hahahaha!!

Liking what you wrote there! I've also read many comments here (and other sites) about SR and JH not fighting enough for their love. Maybe it's because throughout their whole time together, they were spending all their energy to keep each other alive - first JH saving and protecting SR, and then later SR doing the same for JH. It was only when SR nearly lost her life, and JH also realise how difficult it will be for her once he's gone, that JH took the first step to continue being in SR's life via the text messages, and finally to initiate a reunion at the end of those messages. It probably took JH one year and more to plan for it, since he already told SR indirectly that it will be the land where Edelweiss grows ie Switzerland. He may even have started training on his piano again and auditioned for the National Symphony to be the pianist. Throughout the series, JH planned every step he took, and I am sure he did the same for his reunion with SR. Once he set his mind on something, he will get it done. And vice-versa, SR being SR the CEO is also the same. Remember she said that she will buy the Seoul Arts Symphony (can't recall exact name) so that JH can play there? That's exactly what she did with the musical scholarship foundation.

 

Brilliant!

Before I forgot. How old is JH and SR? Because I remember SD said she took the camera 10yrs ago. Correct me if I'm wrong. 

Ri Jeong Hyeok and Se Ri first encounter each other at Switzerland 10 years ago at the time they met at the DMZ Ri Jeong Hyeok is 31. So we can assume that when they first encounter in Switzerland he is 21. i think Seri and Jeong Hyeok are the same age. Seo Dan took the camera on Jeong Hyeok's house when she visit with Gu Sung Jeon and she said she took it from there. At the time Seri and Jeong Hyeok separated at the DMZ he's 32 he celebrated his birthday while in custody of the NIS Feb 14 2020.  i assume because his first scheduled text message to Seri when he was gone is dated March 7 2020. They are Separated for about 3 years since the DMZ goodbye. And when they reunited at Switzerland he's 35 Years Old.

I don't remember or recall in which episode RJH's birthday (birthdate) is shown. Is it in Fake passport (Chinese Citizen identity card) in ep 14?

CLOY has set new standards for the k-drama world...

 

Every K-drama I'll watch, I'm going to be reminded of CLOY... and missing it... and also end up hating the drama that I'm watching for not being CLOY....

 

There were none of that K-drama tropes of unnecessary love triangles, yanking of the female lead by her wrist, or forcefully kissing her... aegeyo, mothers pulling each other's hairs, no throwing a glass of water at each other's faces... AMNESIA (thank god for that...)

 

CLOY was beautifully packaged for us.... it was indeed a gift to all of us K-drama fans for persisting long enough...

 

Now, I'll desperately pray and wait... and see if I can come across all of this beauty one more time!

What a perfect way to start episode 16!!! Episode 15 ended with Seri flatlining and Gu unconscious in the ambulance. I guess asking for happy endings for the main and secondary love teams was too much to ask for because on the opening salvo Gu died. But he died knowing that Dan loved him and not Ri, so he did not die in vain. It is also nice that during the talk between Ri’s and Dan’s mother it wasn’t not mentioned that he died, rather he just went far away. Even during Ri and Dan’s talk before Dan gave the camera. Better to remember Gu when he was alive and all the help he gave Ri instead of mourning and feeling sad for Dan because he died. Dan is the only one who deserves to mourn Gu because she was the one who learned to love Gu despite knowing he is not a good person. 
We all know Seri is going to recover but this is a drama after all so that flatlining scene is a given and it did give a very good reason for Ri to be brought by NIS to the hospital. So nice to see that Seri and step mom has reconciled. Truly one cannot hide his or her emotions towards the person you care for. Seri said she doesn’t need to see Ri one last time because they have said goodbye too many times. But when she found out that Ri spent days without sleep and food standing outside her room and waiting for her to recover, she just broke down and ate her words. Ri re-entering SK after seeing Seri running while in the act of being handcuffed by the NK soldier was definitely one of the highlights of the show. The NIS sort of gave Ri protection and allowed him to cross over because they know the feelings between the two. In real life though Ri would most likely have been shot. This scene was needed for Ri to apologize to Seri and also to give her hope that they could still meet in the future. 
I fully expected the ambitious director to try to kill Ri and the ducklings but what I didn’t expect was for Ri’s father to kill him. I guess that is the only logical thing to do because that director is just too ambitious and will surely try again to kill Ri. I’m curious what was in the white paper that Ri’s mom was holding? Is that poison in case Ri’s father tell her that Ri is died or in case both didn’t return and instead it was the corrupt director who came to arrest her? 
Music can indeed cure many things and it helped Dan move on from Gu. It also didn’t hurt that she got her revenge because Seri’s 2nd brother and sister in law was caught by NIS after Gu’s former manager assisted. It would have been nice had they shown Dan playing the cello. 
Dan’s mom has let bygones be bygones and gave gifts to the key ladies of the military village. It was another touching scene when we saw their faces on the Seri’s Choice products. Saudade is a very appropriate word to use because its closest English translation is bitter sweet. The word invokes a feeling of both happiness and sadness. Seri had happy moments with them and it gives her great joy remembering them but at the same time she knows she likely never see them and thus spend happy moments with them again. 
The ducklings are safe and the former sergeant now captain who use to hate anything SK now seem to be the most versed in western sayings. I could say they are also experiencing sausade but not to the same extent as Seri. I’m very happy for ManBok because he used his listening skills before to assist in doing bad things but now he is recording nature sounds which could relax the soul and bring happiness to other people.

Now time to talk about Seri and Ri again. As expected Seri became emotional when she got home and saw the things that Ri did. I suspected that Ri spelled out i love you using the books and I was correct. I was wrong though with the plant as I thought it was a tomato. The part I found the coolest was the timed messages that Ri composed during his time in NIS. So basically for a year it felt like they were still together. I remember a similar messaging app quite some time ago so my question is, is there really such as app in South Korea? 
The eldest brother finally got his wish of becoming the CEO of their company. A large part surely was due to Seri not willing to part with her company. She still showed though that aside from being more business savvy, she is more intelligent and cunning than her brother. She easily manipulated her brother into starting a scholarship program for musically gifted children. This was due to Ri’s last message of them meeting in the country were edelweiss grows.

Seri waited a few years (was it 3?) before she basically crash landed again after paragliding and finally found Ri in the landing site. We were as expected treated to the sweetest of hugs and kisses. I liked that they have a house in Switzerland to spend their time together and maybe have twins. But that my friends is another story and will most likely exist only in our imagination. On a serious note I hope the two lead stars have another project together because their chemistry is over the roof.

How to move on from CLOY?! :bawling:

 

Episodes in NK in the first part for me were somehow more magical... i think that the first part of the drama is more charming... those scenes were shot beforehand and i just love seeing the more simple Seri living her everyday life beside RJH...

 

Ep12 is the episode that really made me cry and laugh so hard. Like i cried 4 times in one episode :joy: It's probably my most fave episode... especially that almost proposal to Seri when they were drinking... :heartbreak:

 

I also want to add that their OSTs are so sooo good!!! My favorite is The Photo of My Mind by Song Ga In. That song is just so beautiful and it always remind me of their separation in episode 9. IU's song is my top 2... then Crush's song. Hehe. 

 

 

The first part of the show was MUCH MORE charming. I love all the scenes in NK. In comparison, the scenes in Seoul were less endearing. 

 

My issues with the 2nd half of the series were:

 

1. Why was the whole corporate power struggle for beocming the CEO of Queens even included? I felt like the writers spent a lot of time on that and I felt like it was going to lead somewhere but it didn't. At the end, she gave up being CEO cause she realized this competition with her siblings is what make SH go down that nasty path. And SR's father put a professional management team in charge of Queens Conglomerate. If they just wanted to give SH some motivation to team up with CCK, then could have just made it sound like she was super paranoid. No need to spend so much time on it. And if they did, they they should have used it as a better plot device. I fullh expected SR, as the CEO of Queens Conglomerate, to open a new business in NK and be with JH that way. Now I didn't mind that SR finally realized that one upping her siblings and seeking revenge wasn't worth it, but I feel like that realization could have also happened right after she came back from NK. 

 

2. Why was so much of the NK village shown? I remember when SR was in NK, hardly 10 mins of her family and company were shown, which was a good thing bevause the focus remianed on our OTP. I wish instead we got to see our OTP cutely sharing a bed or JH meeting all of SR's family or JH seeing more of the badass CEO side of SR. It would have made the latter half more charming. I also wish we got to see Manager Hong's reaction to finding out who exactly JH is. Small things like that would have make our drama much better.
