Name That Drama: Handbags and bubbles

  1. Maybe the club name will trigger something in identifying Aodat’s movie:

    It’s a Korean movie and I just watched a few scenes. It’s about a group of people in a club called Golden Gate and they all work in a place where they design bags. In one scene at the club, one of them was waiting for a lady to give him his tablet cover… She started bleeding through her nose and ran out. He followed her and gave her a lift but she fell asleep in the car… Please, I really need to know the name of this drama


  2. Kimmie asks about an older show:

    Hi guys, I’ve been looking for this drama for a very long time but could not because I have no idea whats its called.
    It’s not a new Korean drama, its more like it was made in the 1990s or may be 2000s ’cause I remember watching it when I was very young.

    The story is about two sisters who marry two brothers from the different family. The older sister is a writer (?) and is more liked by the mother as well as their mother-in-laws, and she married the younger brother. Meanwhile the younger sister is very kind and mature and has to do all the housework because her older sister is treated like a princess while she’s more of a servant. She married the older brother and works as a nurse(?).

    That is all I can remember and would appreciate very much if you guys can help me find that drama.


  3. Does Yurika’s question ring any bells?

    Please help me find an old Asian drama that aired about 10-20 years ago. It’s about two sisters (or fraternal twins). Their family owns a tofu(?) shop. The older one is the feminine one, becomes a dancer and has a boyfriend but ends up marrying her childhood friend. They have twins and continue running the tofu shop. The younger sister is a tomboyish girl, and becomes a chess player. She is married to another chess player, but divorces after she has miscarriage.


  4. Christina asks:

    It was the first drama that I watched when I was really young. I’m assuming it aired around the early 2000s. All I can remember is that the main female character likes this man. When she asks to marry him, he rejects her. I think it was because he felt he didn’t deserve her. Somewhere along the line, she gets kidnapped. The kidnapper turns out to be her father. The man she likes ends up looking everywhere for her. Later, he comes back home and finds that she has returned there. He confesses his actual feelings and the two get married. The ending scene is where the female character thinks she sees her father at the wedding. She goes running out to find him. I faintly recall bubbles at the end of the scene. If anyone can identify the drama, it would be much appreciated. 🙂

    Is #1 Her Legend from last year?

    • 1.1 Cubby

      I never paid a single notice to the name of the club, but everything else about that definitely describes Her Legend (it might be episode 6).

      I kept waiting for those tablets to figure back into the story …

    • 1.2 Waiting

      This sounds like Her Legend to me also. There were some club scenes where coworkers gathered after work — they were part of a handbag design team and their superiors.

    #3 is probably Futarikko (ふたりっこ in japanese), an old asadora from 1996.
    “About a female professional shogi player and her twin sister. Starring Hiromi Iwasaki and Maiko Kikuchi, with Kana Mikura and Mana Mikura (ManaKana) playing them as children. Average rating of 29.0%”

      Twin girls born to a family of tofu makers.

      One twin was lady-like and a good student. She was college-educated and wanted to save and expand their tofu business. I remember her trying to develop tofu based cosmetics, after succeeding with tofu-based desserts.

      The other was a tom-boy and got into scrapes. But, she became fascinated and was a natural shogi talent. Good enough to compete against grand masters in prize-winning tournaments.

    No idea whatsoever! XP Seems like some harder ones to guess this time around.

    #2 is See and See Again

  5. Patch

    No1 sounds like the drama Her Legend.

    Her Legend

    1. Her Legend

    #2 is ‘See and See Again’, I think someone else also asked about it in a previous Name That Drama post. The writer is Im Sung Han, this is probably one of her earlier more sane dramas before the wtf-ery of recent years like ‘New Tales of Gisaeng’ and ‘Princess Aurora’.

    • 8.1 Swirlydoodle

      It seems like this is a re-post, as the same question was posted two weeks ago, also from “Kimmie”. I guess we were meant to “See and see again” this question!

      • 8.1.1 Fab


        Although I dropped it halfway, I didn’t think ‘New Tales of Gisaeng’ was that bad.

        • sequestial

          Not sure if you’d appreciate the spoilers since you ended up dropping it, but let’s just say that the final ten or so episodes of ‘New Tales of Gisaeng’ involved supernatural body possession, random ghosts that had absolutely narrative nor biological connection to any of the characters (there was an old lady ghost whom some suspected to be the spirit of the female lead’s dead foster mother, but then it turns out it was just a ghost who happened to be haunting her in-laws’ house, used to provoke a personality change in her father-in-law >_> ), and a shaman who was there simply to provide some ominous prophecy that added needless angst. Sigh.

    Number 4 sounds like a really weird drama lol… I’d love to find out what it is

    #4 sounds a little like the Taiwanese drama ‘Endless Love’ but that was only from a few years ago so probably not?

    • 10.1 Maqluba

      Actually ignore that.. I read the description wrong! ( I thought it said her dad kidnapped his dad).. Sorry!

  11. 11 kinz

    to #4, the story is similar to a philippine tv series (your song: million miles away), the story is about a rich girl who confessed her love to a guy, but the guy rejected her since he felt he doesn’t deserves her, the guy wanted to prove himself to the girls father so he became the right hand man of her father, the girl became rebellious then she was kidnapped by her ex, the guy looked for her everywhere and when he found her he confessed to her..
