I've watched the episode. Ok I take back any comments about the interview stylec monologues. I guess it beats the actors speaking out loud in other Kdramas.   I think hearing Eun- so speak a

You can definitely tell that it was awkward for PJW and LEO working together but thrilling and exciting at the same time. They never leave their eyes off each other. They miss each other and are longi

I have so many feelings about this series... that I can't express. But this is now one of my favourite series ever now. It was a beautiful journey!   Episode 17 will focus on Minho, and perh

The reaction to the romantic scenes in episode 2 HAS BEEN EXPLOSIVE 

PEOPLE R SHOUTING CRYING IN HAPPINESS FAINTING DROOLING at the romantic scenes 

Usually we wait for such scenes towards the end but here it just EXPLODED IN THE BEGINNING ITSELF 

 

JCW was indeed right when he said about skinship... But man I didn't know they will show to this extent 

This is SUCH A MAKE UP FOR US GIVEN WE GOT NOTHING IN BACKSTREET ROOKIE FOR some lame controversies 

 

Geez I m so glad it's Ji won with JCW

 

I cudnt enjoy any of the romantic scenes between yoona and him in k2 for lack of chemistry 

And this is like Omgggg

A lot of people were surprised, but I think the message behind the skinship should be taken away , and not just that this is a bed scene. Yes, it was a "daring" scene, but also a realistic one - removed with the embellishment of 20 episodes of yearning (a time span of idk how many months, in some cases years) of other stories depicted in kdrama.

 

I'm more interested in the story of this couple that has happened, the story that hasn't been told yet. Clearly, there is much more to know about this relationship beyond the summer fling. Yes, it happened during summer. Yes, it was some kind of  whirlwind romance - BUT everything points to there being more than that. Why else would they talk about each other STILL to this day, a year later? Why would she give the interview, when she knows who he is, when it will come out who she REALLY is?

 

There are some who give Jaewon flack for falling in love "after 10 minutes" in a car. I don't think it happened that way, just that hindsight is 20/20. And that he was in love, but that was the first moment he really noticed her. 

 

In any case, the mystery is when he told her after a week that he loved her, she just smiled mysteriously. That mystery is what is left unsaid. What has been "stolen".

Jae Won’s falling in love with her came across natural and realistic to me. Love at first sight happens! Plus in a holiday setting like that, love can happen easily. 

 

I’m intrigued by Eun Oh and want to know her backstory. Has she been hurt? Why was she trying to be someone else? Her narration of her surfing experience reminds me of someone I know who wouldn’t explore beyond her comfort zone. There were lots of things she wanted to try but didn’t dare. Maybe Eun Oh was like that and that’s why she said Jae Won was a gift to her cos he gave her the guts to push beyond her boundaries.

 

The discussion of sex was so freeing and very realistic. Women not acting all coy and innocent while the men didn’t come across as experts who know it all. I like!

D A M N!! That kiss and bed scene was hot. Making everyone hard to breath. Definitely on a whole ‘nother level. 
 

Lee Eun Oh is definitely mysterious indeed. When PJW suggested that they should meet up in Seoul, she just looked at him and smiled and when he said he loved her, she responded back with another smile. I’m looking forward to her displaying her true self. 
 

On the other hand, I feel bad for PJW. If I was him, I would feel the same. He felt something and thought she did too.. he was made/upset that she suddenly disappeared. He felt tricked.

Albeit that was one of the most raw and hottest bed scene in the kdrama history, but I was crying when I watched it. We can feel their pain tho. Jae won eyes.... OMG... it was desperation and lust, and after the mysterious smile that she gave to him after he confessed, I can see his confusion and tears. Eun Oh smile... I can see her hide a sad secret... That conflicted feeling that she has... 

 

Everything was so details :cries:

 

Sad that many people only see it as a bed scene, not seeing the details and their pain... It was bittersweet beautiful...

I agree. It was so raw and private, the way it was shot, it made me feel very self-conscious watching this moment between the two. Taking a moment to fangirl the director here because It's just breathtaking. 

 

I think the smile was bittersweet, not really mysterious, when he said he loved her. Not once, but twice, like a reaffirmation. It should be kept in mind that the interview subjects will not necessarily say the truth of how they feel or what has happened. So their dialogue conflicts with their actions. 

 

Also beyond the bed scene, I really like this in between the kisses and sleeping together:

Me tooo... it showed how he was still embarrassed but on the other hand, he gave himself up to her. It was so lovely...

Anyone can post the link where the PD praised JCW at the press con? I saw on Insta that he said to the effect that JCW does not behave like a star. He said JCW’s family environment must have contributed to that and even added he wants to learn from JCW.

 

Edit: I saw the translated copy at Jichangwookkitchen.com:Regarding the reason for casting him, Director Park Shin Woo said, “Just looking at Ji Chang Wook’s face makes me feel good.  He comes with natural manners and natural sweetness,” he said.  “It’s a style that makes people feel good even when they don’t like it,” he said. “I’m curious about the home environment.  How can you be so big?  He’s a star, but he doesn’t seem to act like a huge star,” PD-nim Park said, drawing attention.

@cherkell

 

I'm not sure that Park Jae-Won said he had one-nights over 5 times, at least not in the preview. His interview part seemed to be more a continuation of what Eun-Oh said (that it's weird to kiss first thing as if they had been lovers for years), that she overreacted. They just both sound defensive regarding their time together. 

 

Although I may be wrong since they inserted Oh Sun-Young's interview part in between them, telling men to be more open-minded. And also I haven't had coffee yet ;)

Mianhaeyo.  I reposted a better translation because I screwed up on the first one.  It was hard to hear Wook's usual mumbling through my iPhone and it sounded to me like he said "went over [something] times [or lines]."  Live and learn.  :grimace:

Good report on Lovestruck In The City by The Korea Herald.

 

The star-studded lineup featuring Ji Chang-wook and Kim Ji-won was another reason the drama series instantly caught people’s interest, with over 940,000 views on Kakao TV for the premiere in its first 24 hours.

I think the fact that both build a strong chemistry in the drama also helped despite the time frame being so short everything was perfect. As I said before, many may find the interview scenes annoying but I think it’s unique and it makes the drama even more special.

@elizabethThe format was just right for ep 2. The setup had to be done in ep 1 so the interviews were longer and those who didn’t like it, well, didn’t like it. 
 

I’m drawn by the questions they ask. Very raw and unabashedly. I’m not in the group age they target but it sure brought back some memories.
 

I’m so curious why Eun Oh knows so much about Jae Won. Sounds like she has been stalking him a bit. Or maybe they know someone in common? The novelist?

No need to apologise! I also had to re-watch preview because I couldn't believe he said that hahaha, despite his previous nonchalant interview answers. However, his behaviour makes him seem like he is lying to himself about dating not being a big deal etc.

Googling a person probably, if this is to be contemporary. She does know his real name, in contrast to him. Also, I have a feeling we aren't finished with the summer / YangYang scenes. There have been some in the previews and the scriptreading that look like they actually got married (or something like that hehe) and in the present day, he still noticeably wears a ring. 

 

The director said for this couple the meaning "faded love", so I'm curious to see what has happened, beyond this initial blow-off. The couple's words lead me to believe that she has done something greater than that. 

 

The character chart said that the novelist and Jaewon's cousin are friends, plus the cousin couple are also friends with Eun Oh.

 

 

 

Also I found this article on the series on the Decider, who run their series "stream it or skip it". I'm glad to report they judged Lovestruck as "stream it", despite only having seen one episode:

Just had to grin at this:

Enjoyed ep 3 quite a lot! So many LOL moments. And love how the topic of the morning after and one-night stand was tackled. It’s awfully realistic from an emotional perspective. Maybe cos the writer is a woman and I get the feel that the story is quite spot on with the female perspective. It seems like all our guys are pretty serious when it comes to relationships....though I’m not certain about the novelist...he doesn’t come across as an accomplished player. Haha. And PJW is such a romantic fool!

 

This drama reminds me of a time I used to travel solo and I would come across girls from a certain country. They were wild and would actively look for one-night stand with the locals at a beach reaort. I knew about it cos I was mistaken as one of them and the guys would try to approach me. So this is very real with young adults who are exploring and looking for adventure, and not necessary only in the west.
 

Btw, I’m now enjoying the interview format very much. The seeming interactions are gold! Definitely naughty and funny.

 :hooray2:
