Drama Hangout: Come Back, Ajusshi

If only time grew on trees! That’s how the saying goes, right? Come Back, Ajusshi was an unexpectedly interesting show to weigh in on, but until we build that cloning machine, it’s one we unfortunately can’t parse out every week in recap form.

Which is where you guys come in! If you haven’t visited our other Drama Hangouts thus far, check the links below and feel free to join in the conversation. Or just lurk—whatever floats your drama-loving boat. These hangouts are a chance for you to talk about the show as it airs (watch out though, we can’t police spoilers here!), and to just generally interact with your fellow beanies.

Also, something tells me there won’t be a dearth of things to talk about when it comes to Come Back, Ajusshi, which begins with a rather morbid premise—two ajusshis die and become friends in the afterlife—and takes it into the realm of bittersweet comedy as they’re each given second chances in newer, younger bodies. And when one of those bodies happens to be Rain’s… well, let the games begin.

you are not alone. i watch dots for jiwon and jingoo. their story is more interesting than tge main otp. it is too cheesy and a bit childish. im going to assume they are going to bicker and get back together for most of the time. plus a lot of people watch only for the eye candies. both of them are beautiful. i am more interested in the storyline so maybe thats why i find comeback ahjusshi better than dots. they have a solid story and both rain and yeon seo are hilarious.

Required fields are marked *

OH GOSH. my reason is exactly the same. Idk why but it's hard for me to like SHK. I know that she's famous and has bunch of fans but her acting style is just not my cup of tea. I tried to watch the 1st eps which results in disappointment since I still got the strong vibe of her character in That Winter, The Wind Blows. Although JG's charm is contagious still can't make me stay to follow DOTS.

But now i'm start to doubt, Should I just watch it for the 2nd leads? hahaha

Required fields are marked *

Me too! I love dots for their second lead stories. when I watch I just give focus on them & skipped most of the part when have first leads. ^_^
Comeback Ahjussi is better for me. None of the actors is my favorite but their stories more interesting. I choose to watch Comeback Ahjussi & drop DOTS, only to read recaps here & watch second leads cuts on insta. :D

Required fields are marked *

Same. I'm in a love-hate relationship with DOTS. The drama is somewhat flat and cheesy, i think the high rating is because of the actors/actresses. If they had hired a more average actors, people would probably criticize the show and it wouldn't have been this big. I wished the main couple wasn't so head-over-heels with each other. It's so boring and annoying. Even if they fight, they will be together anyway. There's nothing to look forward to. But i have zero problem with the secondary couple. I like their dynamics. After 3 episodes, i stopped looking forward to it. Maybe i'll watch it if i have some free time and there's nothing else to watch.

But anyway Come Back Ahjussi have a special place in my heart. I love how solid the plot is. And they wrapped it in a funny and light comedy with some deep parts too. The pairing is still ambiguous, kind of feeling bad for the other Rain being stranded lmao but yeah this drama is more enjoyable to me than DOTS. I like it as much as One More Happy Ending. I follow both of them each week, totally on my recommended list.

Lol, and I thought I was the only one. There's just something about DotS that doesn't ring true to me, and while the lead pair is cute I don't find myself as invested in the romance. I like the second pair, though. And like I've said in a number of forums, the music of DotS is just, urgh. I know music is supposed to invoke emotion, but their soundtrack is forced.

I didn't think I'd enjoy CBA this much, but man. I end up hollering with laughter during each episode. I've read people saying that the plot is overly written and the acting way over the top, but considering the premise, I think everything is just as it should be. I love Cheetah Mama (Ra Mi Ran) here. The ghosts are golden. Kim In Kwon's and Lee Min Jung's chemistry is totally believable, despite the debatable "beauty and the beast" vibe. I love little Boon Yi (Six Flying Dragons). The secondary leads haven't come to play that much yet, but I see a lot of potential. The antagonist...totally campy, in contrast with his restrained portrayal in I Remember You. Finally, I'm not feeling Bi and LMJ yet. At this point, I'm shipping the two ghosts more. XD

Also, the music is intuitively set. While the soundtrack of DotS fairly smacks of desperation (which, you know, usually makes you feel the reverse of what it's compelling you to feel), the music of CBA is, for the most part, spot on. (y) The score during the funny bits are apt, while those in the sad scenes are quiet and moving. I don't know. The music just feels more natural to me. Kudos to the music guys.

Gosh, I thought I was the only one that couldnt get into DOTS! As much as I have a soft spot for SJK, the whole thing is so flat and cheesey. The dialogue is good (at times), but the whole things feels like we're just being SHOWN and TOLD what we should feel about the scene and characters at particular instances - which ruins the experience and makes it jarring.

In contrast, I am surprised at how much I am enjoying the melancholy, yet upbeat tempo of Come Back, Ajusshi.

I watched 4 episodes in one sitting, and the time just whizzed by! The cast is solid, the acting great, and the storyline has heart (with a dose of slap stick).

I haven't seen Rain in a production in a long while, but watching this show I am glad he is back in TV land - I "think", no... I am "definitely", falling in love with him all over again :)

The humor's too broad in this one for me, I find myself groaning and wincing too much. That and the back-from-the-dead guys are acting so incredibly clueless sometimes that it's too dumb for me to roll with. Though I'm glad everyone else is enjoying it!

Most of the body-swap hijinks are entertaining, but I nearly had a panic attack when the girl-ahjusshi waltzed into the room full of gangsters wearing basically nothing below the hips. I do know that it's a comedy, I KNOW that, but my brain mapped the elements of that scene to a very bad place.

Yeah, me too! I kept imagining the worst when she got onto the table... My brain was literally going "BAD idea. Abort mission, abort mission!!" LOL. And i was SO surprised when they just let her (him?) go like that after he kinda beat the boss guy.

I do wish s/he was as badass as the imagined part though. But maybe the humor is in him having that badass attitude with no strength to back it up?

I feel you! I both laughed and cried - A LOT - watching ep 3&4.

The scene where Rain's character cried over his own (Kim Young-soo) photograph, like only now it hit him that he'd passed away, was heart-breaking. It made me pensive of how I will be feeling when I die. I mean, only in drama a deceased would have the chance to mourn over his own death. I wonder if I will be regretting plenty. Well, perhaps it was because I was feeling melancholy, though :)

Another scene that gave me goosebumps (in a good way) was when Honey Lee's character arrived at her ex-husband's dept store. She was trembling and Oh Yeon-seo's character (or Kim Su-ro's for that matter) walked pass trough her knowingly and held her hands briefly. That brief moment was enough to give her strength and courage to face the day. I somehow relate to that. Or should I say, envious of that? I think there are moments in life when we just can't express our fears and worries and having someone who understands and can assure us without we having to say anything is a luxury.

Anyway, overall I feel it was two solid first weeks and am looking forward to watching more. Happy watching! :) <3

Rain and OYS is rocking my socks off. They're soooo hilarious! I haven't watched both of them in anything so it's such a breath of fresh air to see them in this. The show is surprisingly heartwarming and I find this more interesting than DOTS. Too bad you guys can't recap this. More hijinks to come especially the other Rain who got stranded on the island.

I liked Ep. 1&-2 and then LOVED 3&4. The drama is hilarious but can be heart-breaking at times.

Perhaps you've read some comments on how it's "too light" when a story of dead people given the second chance to live better should be more "thoughtful". Please, don't let such comments discourage you, at least not until you've watched Ep 1-4 and decide for yourself :) I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did. Happy watching! ;) <3

I wasnt going to get into it either but it turned out to be really fun. It's just so zany yet heartwarming. Rain and OYS are knocking it out of the park with their ahjussi acting. Their old man jokes upon seeing Rain's abs killed me tbh. My sister had to tell me to stop giggling to myself from watching ep 1-4. Lee Tae Hwan is super cute as Seung Jae and I kinda shop him eith Hong Nan....but it's Han Gi Tak so idk...but he's so devoted it's adorable. And the unexpected angst with Rain and his family?

May I ask who the main characters and love lines are? Does Rain's character (non-possessed) have a love line with OYS? I know the guy who posseses his body wants to win back his wife (LMJ), but I love the chemistry between Rain and OYS.

Required fields are marked *

The love lines are not clear to me yet.

I will said :

-Rain + wife + joung handsome manager of the mall, one of the triangles.
-Honey Lee + chef/ex-ganster + his protegee (aka Honey Lee's new bodyguard).

It is a wild guess, the bodyguard has had more chemistry with his old boss on the body of a woman, but also has Rain.

The female body of the Ganster ajhussi doesn't have a current counterpart, so no idea what will happen to her in the end. Although she kissed Rain.

As a side, it will be SUPER interesting if Honey Lee will fall in love with a woman. Even if what is inside is a man.
I have no clue how the writer is going to navegate this implication.
But the actress/ajhussi/ganster is playing it straight, ( straight as a human who wants to protect a loved one, and in this case both have female bodies).

I don't know if this was useful, I'm not sure myself of the pairings.

The bodies (aka Rain & OYS) are not real people - the bodies were only prepared so that the Ajushi's can return to the living
However *SPOILER ALERT* due to faulty computer Rain's character exists - but he's not in the playing field yet. Angel is trying her best to keep him out of SK. Lol.

Right? I love it right now, but like all other dramas of this genre, I'm afraid it will derail somehow and will turn full-on makjang. Which is very much possible with this drama. But I'm enjoying the characters and they just crack me up, especially OYS. Rain surprised me as well, I have never watched any of his dramas before (sue me!), but I'm enjoying his character on this show so far.

I like this show - and not just for the Rain eyecandy, though I love it and I love that the character is having a good time being transformed into a stud.

The thing that has me sort of less engaged than I think I should be is I'm not sure where exactly they're going with it. Are the 2 reincarnated guys going to have a loveline or is that just a joke? What's the point of Rain's character hooking up with his widow? What's the point with the look-alike who got stranded on an island courtesy of Maya's meddling (ominously she said the computer picked appearances that either weren't in use or were of someone who was going to die soon anyway).

I do like that our 2 reincarnated characters seem to need to team up to overcome some mutual foes... and the supporting characters seem interesting as well. Honey Lee is just killing it; I'm gay so if I'm telling you I'm more interested in her than Rain's character, well, that's notable.

On to the plot and main characters.

Am I the only one that have problems wih the Mall Ajhussi ghost character?
He was not a bad person.
Clearly loved his child and family, but.... He was a moron.

I'm not sure he deserves his wife, he clearly neglected her and was menancing when she wanted to deal with their problems.

But what is unforgivable is how he died.
He was so devoted to the mall that he climbed a ledge to fix a sing!!!!!.
That is idiotic and his family is suffering his lack of brains, to say the least. He was not even drunk when he took that decision.
He should work to fix the mess that he created, but he should help his wife move along with the joung manager of the mall, (unless he turns to be evil, who knows!).

On second order of things , Rain is hilarious when he jokes about his abs. That scene had me in stitches.

I also thought that was hella stupid of him to do coz well, it's stupid. But who knows, he had a really rough day and everything's crumbling in front of him. He's obviously not in the right mind. However, from what I understood after watching episode 4, it seems like there's more to it. I think someone actually pushed him to his death. The CCTV were all broken so someone's trying to hide something. I might be looking to much into it but it would be nice to have something more than just him stupidly climbing there to fix the banner and fall to his death.

So far it is a very engaging drama and the actors are doing a great job. Yes, it will not win a battle with DOTS. Probably the only show that could have given that drama a run for its money in the last year was Joo Won's last drama.

I actually like that I don't even know if there is a love line or not; it makes it unique. I am just gonna sit back and enjoy the ride, iced chocolate and all.

@zital,
There's a tradition on DB to put down Kim Eun Sook's dramas. It happened with Secret Garden, then Heirs, and now DOTS. I've learnt my lesson and stay away from the DOTS recap threads, cos I don't agree with the negativity of those comments and the tone of the recaps.

To bad it's difficult to escape them even in other threads. You know, there were people on DB were still complaining about Secret Garden 2 years after it aired.

Here I come as my gross ahjusshi apologist self to talk to you guys about this amazing show ok

It starts off as simple as 'two guys die', but when they come back to the living, nothing's immediately solved- they get to see the (admittedly gory) impact of their deaths around people they care a lot about, and how adversely it affects everyone else. The ahjusshis start to second-guess whether or not they should've returned, over resting in peace as they were previously offered. There's a really poignant scene (spoiler ahead) when Rain kneels before Kim Inkwon's picture and starts to mourn himself with his own family behind watching, and that was one of the most powerful scenes in the show thus far.

The ahjusshis also continue to come back in play even when they're using new bodies, through flashbacks as well as occasional cuts where we see the ahjusshis maneuvering their current selves to hilarious results. Everyone's used in an all-rounded manner playing to their strengths- especially Ra Miran, who's the angel Maya that oversees the two dumb ahjusshis. She just SLAYS IT whenever she pops up.

CBA is the drama I look forward to watching first on Wednesdays & Thursdays followed by One More Happy Ending (hard to resist the chemistry and comedic talents of Jung Kyung-Ho and Jang Na-Ra together) and rounding off the night with Descendents of the Sun (mostly watching just to catch scenes of secondary leads Jin Goo and Kim Ji-Won).

I just marathoned the first 4 episodes and I really like it. It's an overambitious project to take on, but over all its's super fun. My only problem is that sometimes it feels like you're watching two drama; i feel like both stories get equal timing but they don't often meet in the middle so the viewer doesn't forget the stories are connected.

That's about it though. The episodes have been cracking me up so far so i really like it! 8/10 so far!

Yes i also feel like this could have been 2 different dramas. The to e of the story is also very different between the 2 dead ahjussis. Kim Soo Roo story had a teagic melancholy feel whereas Rain story is totally slapstick romcom feel.
I do think both wont be able to properly come back to life. This is just a chance for them to finish up their goodbyes to their lives. Which is gonna be seriously heartbreaking.
Rain and Oh yeon soo pairing is awesome, they're so hilarious. The whole come on show me your thing was just sooo funny and can only be done under this bizarre circumstances hahahaha.

Looks like many are watching both Descended from the sun and Come back Ajusshi. But I am still deciding whether I should start Descended. I dont like dramas like Fugitive Plan B and Iris. Descended seems to be on that line which is why i am hesitant. Maybe if it gets amazing reviews I will start in future.

Talking about Come back. I am not a fan of Oh Yeon Seo but the girl can act got to admit that. So far the drama is going good. But I wonder whether Oh Yeon So-Rain love line is part of the drama or not. Before the drama went on air I thought the main plot was the love line. Either way I am loving it.

Cant leave out One more happy ending too. It is doing a decent job as well.

DOTS won't get amazing. I gave it a try but dropped after second episode. It has Doctor Stranger's vibe and level of ridiculous. I understand it's a fantasy island in a unreal political world but the bad writing and plot makes me not care about any of the characters. This show is not for adults. Reading its recaps here is all I can do for this show. Come Back on other hand is enjoyable so far and not only for Rain. The female characters are strong and actresses are great. I get sick of Kdrama junkies swooning after every pretty flower boy move or smile and ignoring the female actors. I am watching this on for the laughs and smart, beautiful female leads.

Agree, agree, agree !! Oh Yeon Seo has been doing an exceptionally good job and so are the rest. Really a very entertaining and awesome 4 episodes where every cast plays his/her part so well. Not just eye candies or the pretties.

I didn't knew why I really can't get this drama, the humor doesn't funny but doesn't dry either, like a step away to make me laugh, I knew it funny but it doesn't make me laugh,
the story is complicated and it hard to understand in 1st watch, if you went to a bathroom, you feel nothing is really happen,
all the cast is gorgeous, I like their admiration of their body but I really wish they have some good talk about their situation, like making plan or something cause it's 4 episode and I saw much things happen but the dialogue was short,
the acting is really good, I hope they can manage to make it more enjoyable

Wow can't believe you aren't recapping this drama when it's really really good.
This isn't the typical swoony love story with handsome guys and romantic songs playing at the back but it's something fresh and HongNan is such a fresh female lead and Oh Yeon Seo's acting is brilliant!
I hope to see her more dramas. With that face and that acting skill, i wonder how she is not top star yet...

It's the only k-drama i'm watching right now and loving it ! Ive staryed signal and all the hype ia worth it, i couldn't keep up with dofs's cheesiness so i dropped it at 2nd episode..... Coming back to "come back ahjussi" it's awesome ! There are sad moments, happy ones and funny ones. It's perfect if you're searching for a light hearted drama. I just the ending won't be disappointing and the pace will be the same throughout the show. Rain and oh yeon so 's chemistry is no joke though

It would be wonderful if the lovelines stay among the living ones, after all, those bodies didn't exist before. If not, it'll become a terrible mess. Especially because of the lost son in the island

Someone else has said it before and I agree that one of the strongest moments of this show is that moment when Oh Yeon Seo's character walks past Honey Lee's character and grabs her hand and squeezes it in a silent but powerful moment of support. So beautifully understated.

while i am loving the humor and the storytelling, i am still a little confused as to the lovelines in the drama. Initially i thought it was between rain and OYS's characters but unless the drama decides to go THERE (which i would actually appreciate as an interesting plot twist) i find it impossible for it to happen between them. So is it supposed to be with their significant others when they were alive? Would they be romancing them with a different face? Or is it more of them just being there as a catalyst to help them move on to better lives and to find someone else?

I think your last question is really on point. I just don't see a way out for these two gentlemen so I think this is a drama where they help the living move on. But don't you think it's fun you don't know what the love lines are or if there are any at all? For once we can just go with the flow.

By the way, the drama is being adapted from a Japanese novel so there is source material though I think in the book they had one or two more of the recently departed come back. If that's so, I'm so glad they didn't do that in the drama. What they have going on is enough.

My fave part was when Rain & OYS were admiring Rain's body & OYS keep on grunting about hers n call Rain's abs chocolate bar. It was so funny I cant stop LOLing. But i wonder that instead of putting other Rain in an island why dont just combine their body. I mean the ahjusi ghost can possessed the real Rain. So it br easier to wrap up later on. Hmmmm

I wasn't paying attention to this drama because the hype over Dots was just massive. The teaser, however, was interesting enough and promised good laughs so I checked in. Surprising, it's a lot more than just comedy. There's a bit of everything - family, relationships, romance and revenge. What I really enjoy so far is the very delightful comedy, played brilliantly by OYS and Rain. The impact of Young Seo's death on his family is also heart wrenching. Child actress Lee Re makes me cry every time she does and I love Young Soo's Dad.

The last time I saw OYS was in Jang Bo Ri. Although I know she can be funny like her character in You Who Rolled In My Life/My Husband Got a Family, I never expected her to totally rock this role.

I have never been on Rain's train and never thought of him as a good actor. It's probably unfair to compare Rain in this drama and SJK in Dots but if I have to choose a better actor, I'd have to pick Rain. Caveat: only in this drama and in these 4 episodes so far. I was constantly sizing up Rain's expressions and body language vis a vis Kim In Kwon's in this show. I must say Rain is doing a really good job. Who knows, if SJK was cast in this role, he could do better? Unfortunately or fortunately for the majority out there, he's just donning his beautiful smile and strutting his manly poses in Dots.

I watched both DOTS' and this drama's first ep, one after the other, and I ended up picking this one up and dropping DOTS (as much as I love Song Joong Ki, the plot is just...too cheesy; I'll probably try to pick it up again because I love him that much, though).

My heart felt very heavy after watching Kim In Kwon as Kim Young Soo in episode 1, and Rain didn't disappoint me with his performance once the whole body possession started. They really do feel like the same character despite being played by two different people, which I feel is a big accomplishment. I honestly didn't think he would do such a great job as this. I'm completely sold and will watch this drama til the end (unless something goes awry with the plot, haha).

So far, the second storyline with KSR and OYS I don't find as compelling, but I believe in the story enough that I want to keep going.

I'm sad this one isn't getting a full recap on Dramabeans, but I'll gladly check back at this thread to see what others have to say.

Okay, so I've seen up to Episode 3. Oh Yeon-Soo is just so damned sexy in this, that the thought that it's Kim Su-Ro inside gives me cognitive dissonance, even if she moves just like a gangster would.

It seems that their plot has started, so I'm looking forward to how they'll fix their last mistakes when they were alive.

Maya is my fav character - love her hamming up her various roles and ever hopeful pleas of "so have your decided to come back (to heaven)?" . Lee Min Jung is bland as usual. Have watched her in 2 dramas so far (BOF, Cunning Single Lady) and I really dun think she can headline a drama on her own. Her range is limited and she's best at playing the grieving/crying widow. The 2 ajusshis are amazing - love their gravitas and raw acting. It's the seniors who are driving the drama here altho I am pretty surprised at Rain's more than competent acting despite the slightly frozen face.
Despite my love for Soong Joon ki in DoTs, I have to say that Please come Back, Mister is hitting all the right buttons for me here! DoTs is way too cheesey and serious! lighten up, drama!

At first I was worried that they would drop the 2 ajusshis once they did the body on loan thing but thank goodness I still get to see them as they do life the veil of switcheroo (kinda reminds me of what they did in SEcret garden with Joo Won (Hyun Bin woohoo :)) and Gil Ra Im (Ha Ji Won)). but I never really get confused since there is no body swap here . just a total "invasion of body snatchers "going on. totally enjoying the laughs here esp the encounters between rain and OYS. these 2 are hilarious - on man - chocolate 6-pack and ice chocolate - I rewatched that scene 3 times in a row - it was a riot. and to reduce the comparisons between DoTs and CBA, I shall say that the 2 cover totally different genres so perhaps it best not to compare the 2 too much. :P

Thank you guys for positive comments about Oh Yeon Seo. I'm so glad she's receiving nothing but positive feedbacks. I knew she'll do good with any of her roles but I didn't know she'd be this great with this drama. And I'm loving her dynamics with Rain! So refreshing and hilarious.

Has anyone seen Episode 5 yet? Why did they make the sassy little girl sleep the entire episode. I missed her.
Did you also ask how in the world did that other actress (the one who had a field day slapping and pouring water on the awesome but pitiful Honey Lee) look sooooo much like Park Shin Hye? I did multiple takes because I thought my eyes were playing games on me and I have come to a conclusion that she must have burned a lot of dough to have that Park Shin Hye touch ups. *shakes head*

Yeah, she did look like Park Shin Hye, but I remember her from the Ex-Girlfriend's club.

Also, is the spare dude's name (the wife-s ex and Rain's hoobae) is Jung Ji Hoon? Bwahahahahaha!

Happened to start this on a lazy day. Since this was one of the dramas I was going to pass on, I'm surprised at how entertaining I'm finding it. OYS is hilarious. It's a nice watch for when you want to relax and have a few laughs.

Just watched episode 5 - can Rain be anymore adorable? *Squeal* The acting chops of the cast in this series are truly something - especially the actresses: OYS, Honey Lee, Lee Min Jung.

I hope the ratings in Korea improve - this show deserves it!

Just manage to watch episode 5. Rain is just killing it. He drop the im so handsome act and just go full blast eccentric. Bahahhajsjsjhs OYS & Honey Lee also cracking up. OYS just create good vibe & fresh act. She can create good chemistry with almost everybody. I wonder what is going on between the wife and the assistant... BEST KOREAN DRAMA EVERRRRRRRR
