As for this show, the first episode is meh,

 

Agreed - for a drama that's supposed to be 120 episodes, they definitely seemed in a rush to get things out there ... the dialog was like ... huh? :blink:

 

ML - peeking down her blouse in the first episode? ... I like him already:lol:

 

FL - Even though she came off a bit ditzy to me, I like her. ... I do hate that lip curl thing she does though

 

SML - Undecided, but he gets full props for motorcycle on the beach ... horses ... too old fashioned

 

SFL - If its really our favorite "Deputy Chief of Surgery" from Fatal Promise, its gonna be a LONG 120 episodes ... just saying
 

@Ameera Ali Meme/Gifs great as always - keep'em coming

 

@Lmangla  Your dancing goose is really creeping me out for some reason ...

I read the summary of the old plot and 

Spoiler

did she really end up with the second lead? I thought she and the male lead get back together in the end. The summary I read said they coincidentally met in whatever beach/island that is memorable for them and they had a serious talk and decided that this was the right time for them to start again. It was three years after all the craziness ended. I think the most shocking revelation was the one regarding the second male lead’s family. How cold blooded could that father be? Wow! Just Wow! All for the sake of money?

@celebrianna ~ re: your question

Spoiler

in the original, she and the second lead do date for a bit but eventually with the secret about his family and everything else, it becomes a permanent break-up. she does end up with the male lead but there 's a time gap but it made sense. they basically needed time apart after all the madness that happens....

Thanks for the confirmation.

Yes, I read she finally gave the second lead a chance after he wooed her for a time. Male lead was also entangled with a fiancée that he felt guilty towards. I heard the second female lead is really the villain and not the second male lead. Well, judging from the second female lead’s motive, she is indeed a villain. However, what I didn’t see coming while reading the story summary is the truth behind the accident that killed the father. What a life changing event for all the characters that led all of them to the lives they were currently leading 10 years later.

Episode 2 - random thoughts

 

I know they're going to be together but with 120 episodes why does it feel like the writers are rushing things abit?  The ML made a sound argument with the trip to a protest, but caved way too easily for what amounted to a teenager tantrum - I think it would've worked better if they parted angry at each other, and then NEXT episode she comes back, acknowledges the valid points of his argument, AND THEN tell him she wants to see him anyway. Just my opinion.

 

... and if she tried on 12 outfits to get to that one, then she should've stopped with the Black dress w/flowers .... just saying.

 

Oh and I still hate that curl thing she does with her lip :rolleyes:

Agreed - hopefully the guy passes the bar during the time jump and becomes the ML's legal advisor, and the girls got him as a husband, and together they help the Leads as the occasional voice of reason ... and we get to watch as they bicker as a married couple ... works for me. :D

they are both supposed to be in their late 20s at this stage and I felt like rolling my eyes. in the original, they were both in university and she was something like 18 or 19 while he was close to graduating. so it made sense that she was acting like a teenager (which she was) and he gives in to her and throws practical sense to the wind. like you said, he made valid points here and then basically lust just took over. :sweatingbullets: thats the only explanation I can think of both acting this way -- lust and instant chemistry.

I have to say, after episode 1, I've had zero interest in going back to this show.  Maybe after a couple of weeks when they get over their initial torture?  I'll come back and ask who Sena from Sweet Enemy is supposed to be. :wink:

This is my second go round with Hong Soo ah and her new look, and it's still sort of odd for me to hear her voice coming out of this face. I must say that the surgeons did an amazing job of not only making her still beautiful, in a different way, and that she still comes off as likable whether she's playing good or evil characters. I do miss her old look though. I've always thought that she was both unique and gorgeous, and so full of comedic energy. I wonder if she still plays baseball? :)
