I'm in the middle of watching episode 2 and decided to stop for a moment to say how much I loved the way they used a classic old song for background music.  One of my favorite songs ever.  It was written and performed by a man who died tragically and way too early:  Jim Croce.  

 

This is an oddly perfect song for Melting in more ways than one since our leads are essentially spending their time in a sort of bottle.

Testing...always lurking but I can no longer resist. Hello! Going to keep everything simple...not very good on technology. I am a very devoted JCW fan. I am not a very fussy critic of dramas. My goal of watching dramas is to laugh, cry, and get emotional involved with the story. I am really enjoying MMS.

Agreed that this seems to be the best way to view Melting.  I think this show is gonna be a fun ride.

 

Congrats on unlurking!

I am on my first runthru of Ep. 2 but I missed this......jeez.....guess I'll have to watch it again.  So sad.....(NOT).  This runthru is with only about 20% of the script translated, but I can endure just about anything if Wook's face is there.  Thanks for the notice.

No, you are not the only one, but it is nice to meet another.  I love the current SK music scene (in dramas and movies, not KPop) because it is so reminiscent of what melody and lyrics used to be like......before.....things changed.

It's not just you.  But Time in a Bottle is the actual BGM from about 30:04-32:09 in episode 2.

Are you having trouble finding the episode subbed?

Not really. I don't know where you are, but I am in the Eastern US, and the subs are coming in as the Viki.com translators have the time to post them.  This seems to be the normal state of affairs where I am.  It should all be almost 100% by tomorrow Tuesday, or Wednesday.  I see the subs posted almost in real time.  Kinda cool.

"The K2" premiered with a 4.2% rating, so the bar has been set high for JCW cable dramas, especially with this being his 'comeback' programme.  I was hoping for something closer to 3.5%-4.0%, given all the pre-hype and promotions.  But now that I've had a chance to watch the raw all the way through without streaming interruptions, I don't think the scientist/professor story made much sense (as scripted) and might have turned viewers off during those scenes.  Granted it was only Episode 1 of 16... let's see how Episode 2 fares today.  *fingers crossed*

I hope Sundays ratings will do better as on a Saturdays there’s Vagabond and this drama is addictive and it has that Factor to keep you glued to it. During K2 time only few channels doing weekend drama so the competition is less. Nowadays SBS n KBS cancelled out their mon-tue drama slots as they see cable channels weekend drama doing well so they are competing is same time slot. 

 

If only international viewers live stream can add to ratings.

YAY!!! I wasn't the only one! loved, loved, loved it... I immediately went and streamed his music after watching the raw. (I have to say I love you in a song... JCW singing that or "Time in a Bottle" for the OST would be interesting)

 

Found the whole episode a narrative drag, except the end when they FINALLY defrosted. (MDC's hospital scenes were worth their weight in gold and saved the episode for me). MDC's family scene could have been cut in half if not more--though I will not complain about JCW in a white suit, and neither should you!--. The cowboy costumes felt out of place, I'd have preferred full on joseon sageuk with extra formal court speech ... maybe WJA as the runaway queen and JCW as the guard she fell in love with... so we could get "Yea, Mama"... 

 

I'm still cautious about the writing and pacing of the drama. But the cast is doing an excellent job of pulling the show along with them--again our leads excelled. I'm going to miss Lee Hong-ki, his extended cameo was the best. But replaced Im Won-hee! yay! that hair! You poor, poor man. Kang Ki-doong as the younger version of MDC's little brother was priceless and great casting for going into Kim Won-hae (love, love, love you!).

 

PRAYING that the pace will pick now that we have finished the two hours of exposition... that could have been handled in a single episode. Please no extended flashbacks!

 

I am hoping that ratings might start to tick up as we go along... but don't have high hopes for this episode since they waited until the final third to wake up our leads. 

 

EDIT: I should say that I really do enjoy this drama... I'm being nit-picky because of that. It has sooo much potential and I want it to meet that.

Just went back to that time code in Viki.com and it's not there.....glitch, feature, bug?  Of course, I will keep watching and listening.  It's bound to show up.....but if it doesn't do we have some kind of a story?  Not that important, but it would be good to hear that old anthem again in an appropriate if unusual setting.

I know the ratings are not what we expected BUT they are based on one episode. Didn't like K2 or SP until the whole story was done. Now I can't stop watching them. Same with Healer. Many said it was slow moving until episode 6. JCW dramas have LONGEVITY! They're fun to watch over and over again. Agree that the cast is doing an excellent job.

I'm in the Southern US, Central Time, and I've already watched episode 2 fully subbed.  But not on Viki.  ;)  By the way, if you live live recaps, DramaMilk has been covering Melting, and they post literally minutes after airing.

I liked what  @TGMS49 has said about just watching for the sense of enjoyment, and I think that's the best way to approach Melting.  There's another drama airing right now that a lot of people are expressing disappointment about because they went into it with certain expectations, and I think that's too bad.  I'm not expecting anything but enjoyment of watching Melting, and it has provided that for sure.  I'm looking forward to episode 3.

I don't have Viki.  But the song was there when I watched online.  I can PM you a link.

Got the link, thanks.  Guess some entities who post have better taste in music than others.....LOL.  For anyone else reading, and having nightmares about ratings, Viki.com has posted that Melting Me Softly had a 9.8/10 even before airing!!  

 

Ji Chang Wook picked this drama himself and has expressed great trust in the writer and director.  I go with all of his experience on the musical stage, and his experience in all types of TV and movie settings.  The man is a pro, and has seen the downside of some of his earlier picks for dramas, and has learned from those experiences.   I will watch him regardless, and skip the bad parts, if there are any.

Healer and the K2 is his masterpiece and these 2 dramas pace is never boring or slow. Healer got me hooked as early as episode 2. 

 

It seems that this first 2 episodes is like an introduction to the characters and I seriously hope this pace will pick up next week onwards before KNetz really gets bored.
