[Drama 2020/2021] Lovestruck in the City, 도시남녀의 사랑법: 나의 사랑스런 카메라 도둑


Recommended Posts

More Yangyang scenes to follow! Their date on the field, as briefly seen on the first preview. We have come this far that I worry now, whether there will actually be a happy ending for these two, since there is no guarantee. This is a quite realistic, nuanced drama. Sure, it has firework-moments, but in the next scene those fireworks are destroyed with comments, as if to remind us that this is life. 

 

It was beautiful that we could hear Eunoh's perspective, if only for a short time. 

 

Jaewon corrects himself, being reminded of what happened, that he doesn't like strange women anymore. Ahhh but you can't still forget her...

 

I am immensely enjoying the interview format. Poor Jaewon being teased and mocked by the other interview participants. I really liked how they showed also Eunoh during the repartee and she only spoke up in the end with a rather defensive tone. He still doesn't know that Eunoh is one of the interviewed, as the editor has not shared this information. 

 

I had thought Writer Geon and Seonyoung would meet in the present day, I was surprised it was 5 years ago. And the words he said that he is open to new things, yet he seems to live a voluntarily single life. One wonders what happened to his popularity he claims he has had. Will Geon and Seonyoung meet again?

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

@agenth Hmm...yeah, the ending. I am hopeful that they’ll work out. Strictly speaking, they are not one-night stand now but their foundation is weak. Plus the lying on the part of Eun Oh is a major negative against her. But looking at PJW and how he acted toward her, there could be a chance.

Just noticed that the guys in the drama are gentlemen not assholes. They all made sure they got the girl’s consent before making the next move. I mean based on Eun Oh’s behavior, guys could always accused her of sleeping around. Here, PJW only said she’s terrible cos he felt she toyed with him. 


The girls are more direct and badass. LOL. :D

Wait, wait, wait.

 

The 3rd BTS photo shows Eunoh wearing a ring! The outfits they wear is from that scene in the preview/trailer where they kiss.

 

And in the fourth BTS photo Jaewon wears the ring, which is the outfit he has during the ending of the third episode if I am not mistaken.  

Spoiler

I mean from the scriptreading session there were some lines about marriage/marrying between them....

Getting consent should be in everyone's behaviour, especially assholes. I do like how the camera work portrayed the love scenes between each couple. 

 

The "terrible" thing Eunoh did has not been revealed yet. Sure she has been flaky right now and downright dismissive partially (she did not completely ignore him. After all she came up to talk to him on the beach, even without his prompting). The problem is probably that she has built up this "fake" person/identity. Though all her antics are still something that came from within, so it's not completely fake.

Spoiler

So they are exchanging rings from the photos and the description says they are getting married, but they obviously broke up in the present time.

I liked that they showed Lee Eun Oh’s back story. Why she ended up in Yangyang. Yes, she hated her life in Seoul and needed to escape to freely do things she wanted to do that she couldn’t do. I’m thinking maybe she needed to escape the reality and live freely under a false identity.. maybe to just spend quality time alone for herself, maybe to re-energize herself again before returning to reality, maybe she wasn’t expecting much from her trip... and.. then bam.. Park Jae Won just happened to appear and maybe it just changes her plans. It seemed like she wasn’t looking for anything serious with him and was only just a fling but he was already smitten with her from the start. He felt things while she played it cool. From their one night stand she seems like she wanted to leave it as that and no strings attached but the ending showed that she does cared for him and does shows some feelings there.. but it seems like she might hurt him again.

Ahh...I messed up the timeline cos of the switching scenes. He said she was terrible in present day! Still, I find him such a gentleman for only saying Eun Oh toyed with him. All the time I was watching her and the way she behaved, I would not be surprised that she get accused of sleeping around and toying men.

But her behavior honestly, is very real. I can relate. She wanted a one-night stand but at the same time, she liked him. So she's really fickle and yeah, flaky is the word!

As for the consent thingy, what I'd meant to say was the guys were not pushy even when the girls were the ones leading them on. LOL.

 

Btw, Dramamilk did a "all characters explained" for LITC. Read or watch it here: https://www.dramamilk.com/all-characters-explained-in-love-struck-in-the-city/

Oh yeah I meant to say I hope that dramas and movies would cease to portray non-con, or at least have swift justice brought down when it happened, lol. A person can be an RickRoll'D without non-con too.

 

He says he did propose...

Who was it that said Jae-won became a "bit of an alcoholic?"  His cousin?  But dangit boy... get a better selection of liquor than what's in your desk drawer!  I'd be more than happy to share some of mine! :blush:

 

Just checked this, and it was JCW who said it in the promo video to Knowing Brothers Episode 260! He was being asked to describe good things about his character hahaha. Can't find the video right now, will insert when I find it.

The OST will be released tomorrow! I do hope to find a track sung by him as well as the other music used. The background music fits so well with the drama. 

 

btw, happy new year :D

Ji Chang Wook And Kim Ji Won Enjoy Their Happiest Moments Together In “Lovestruck In The City”

 

Ji Chang Wook and Kim Ji Won look happily in love in new stills revealed for KakaoTV’s “Lovestruck in the City”!

 

“Lovestruck in the City” is a short-form romance drama that follows the realistic love lives of young people fighting to survive in the hectic city. It is being produced with multiple seasons in mind, and the first season is entitled “My Lovable Camera Thief” (literal translation).

 

Ji Chang Wook plays Park Jae Won, an honest and passionate architect who is a hopeless romantic when it comes to love. After a woman that he calls “the camera thief” steals his heart one summer night and then disappears, he is unable to get over her—even a year later. Kim Ji Won is the titular “camera thief”—freelance marketer Lee Eun Oh.

Spoilers

The previous episode of “Lovestruck in the City” showed Park Jae Won and Lee Eun Oh officially beginning their relationship.

 

In new stills, Park Jae Won has his arms around Lee Eun Oh as they pose for a photo together. The boutonnière in Park Jae Won’s shirt pocket and bouquet held in Lee Eun Oh’s hands indicate that they are having a small wedding with just the two of them.They begin their newlywed life in a camping car, and they look utterly happy and in love as they snuggle and drink coffee together.

The upcoming episode of “Lovestruck in the City” will show the sweetest moments from Park Jae Won and Lee Eun Oh’s relationship a year ago. From the kiss in the workshop to the night in the camping car and their wedding, their candid and passionate romance will make viewers’ hearts flutter while also raising curiosity about what made them break up. The episode will also share a look at Park Jae Won and Lee Eun Oh’s current lives following their return to Seoul.

 

The producers of “Lovestruck in the City” explained, “Park Jae Won and Lee Eun Oh, who were attracted to each other at first sight, will have their own wedding and enjoy the peak of their happiness. Please watch on to see how their relationship will progress in Seoul as they look back at their beautiful memories from a year ago.”

 

Episode 4 of “Lovestruck in the City” will be revealed on January 1 at 5 p.m. KST.

Thanks for the link! It's a very nice song, reminiscent of the fireworks ending scene! 

 

So now the flashbacks have ended! They met in present day - well, Jaewon doesn't know this, I guess it would have been rather cliché for them to meet like this. Why do I have the feeling that they will meet through work? She is looking for more contracts, and perhaps the architecture firm will need some marketing? 

 

Also the cliffhanger of WHAT IS THE SECOND REASON? The first reason I understand, but it isn't very much his fault. He probably meant to say I like the way you are, but she took that as not liking if she dropped her charade. 

 

My favourite scene was definitely the rain scene (I love rain!), the proposal and when she told unabashedly everyone that she'd been living in his camper. That smirk of his, haha. Also I liked the real life interaction of Jaewon, Kyungjoon and his father. Recently he played a rather vile character, so it was nice to see this side of him. 

 

Also more Seonyong and Gun interactions! She said Gun should meet her first, not Jaewon. Interesting...  I suppose the editors havent shared this comment with Gun? Or, he also doesn't know her name? 

 

Gun's instincts are that Seona/Eunoh DID steal something from Jaewon - Which is the camera, I am assuming. Jaewon was very insistent that nothing was taken from him, but I think the camera that he took the video and pictures of their wedding is what has been taken, and he only says this when he is drunk to the policeman, because in a sober state he can't admit what he truly lost (her).

If anyone have a better resource or search skills, I’m looking for these two songs from the drama.. or hopefully it’ll be part of the OST. I’m still trying to search for the song that was played when they had their one night stand. It’s in English and these bands have been around for so long so you’ll think it’ll be easy to find it but nope. 

 

BeetleJuice- Kiss Me Kiss Me

Yurisangja- What Do You Think

 

I love ep 4. It was full of sweetness yet I feel sad at the same time because LEO/YSA is not fully in it. I can start to see both side of their feelings though. PJW is so full of love towards LEO/YSA while she’s holding back because it’s not the real her but she has her reasons and I’m curious to what the 2nd reason is. Their relationship I’m taking it as “What happens in Yangyang, stays in Yangyang.” 
 

Anyways, the camera was stolen from PJW. I don’t know if LEO/YSA did it intentionally or by accident but maybe in a way.. it was probably a good thing she got it. Even though she’s trying to forget,  I’m sure she looks at the pictures from time to time remembering their days together. 

 

 

I hope we get to see more of the third couple. I like Sun Young’s character. Very fierce/tough. Kang Geon seems like a funny guy.

Those songs in English are made-up/inspired songs/bands from Rolling Stones and The Beatles (or is it BeeGees?). That's why you can't find them haha. I admit, I first tried to search "Rolling Stars - Hello, My Beach" as well.  Every time they display the song name/band in the episodes, as Episode 1 and Episode 4, it's a song they created for the meaning of the scene. 

 

I was surprising when Sun Young said that Geon should meet her first. Her whole attitude was all, I'm a cool girl, all about no strings attached. But, when Jaewon recounts his story, there are times she feels with him, like when she said she wants that kind of love as well, you see her drinking alone and looking wistful.

Yurisangja- What Do You Think

I think the PD-nim and Music Director have reached Troll Level = Master, because these two songs do not exist, at least not in their present format.  Especially for the Yurisangja one - "이런 난 어떠니" is not "What Do You Think," but "Oh, How Am I?") as sung in the last stanza "Ileon nan eotteoni?"  Yurisangja never released anything even remotely close to a tune like this, and no special album by them was released in 2005.

 

Purely speculative on my part, but it has been written that MD-nim Nam Hye Seung is the author of all the songs for the Lovestruck OSTs and incidental BGM music, so I wouldn't put it past him to be throwing this little nugget out there to keep things interesting.  And Yurisangja was trending earlier on Naver, so that obviously served its purpose.  *golf clap*

 

I don't mind the mind games as long as it is released on the OST, or I'm gonna fly over to Seoul and crack someone upsides their head. :ph34r:

Watched ep 4 3x. First time was not fun cos I watched it with my family around and they made a lot of unnecessary comments. Watched 2 more times (different subtitles) on my own and found myself grinning from ear to ear at their sweet moments.

 

Feels like they're moving into more present moments so am very keen to see their developments.

 

Eun Oh comes across as someone too stressed up living in the city. She should be a fun gal but city living has sucked her a bit dry. Her beach persona is not totally fake as some have rightly pointed out. Just that it's a new side of her that she herself hasn't explored.

 

I have a feeling her reason # 2 got to do with her self-esteem, that she's not confident of who she is cos of her accomplishments thus far. She's probably insecure of how PJW would view her level of success or lack of. Cos this episode ended on the point PJW said he doesn't know where she is or what she does.

 

Btw, I super love the song JCW sang and how he sang it. Waiting for that OST.
