Name That Drama: Team meat

 
Ready for another round of drama-sleuthing? Help out your fellow Beanies or email us your own questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.
 

  1. Pork and beef

    A group of office workers enter a BBQ restaurant to find their reservation stolen by their rival team at work. I think the team who stole the reservation were evil and they had some sort of victory over the good team. The two teams throw insults at each other and one of the guys from the good team asks their boss for some beef but since their team lost, the boss only has budget for pork.

     

  2. Robbing someone to death

    This is an old one and what I remember is:

    Mother and daughter live in the boonies. The mother is sickly, the daughter’s father is a married wealthy man who often comes to visit. One day, the mom has one of her attacks and one of the neighbor ladies comes over to help but she spots all this money the father left and instead tries to steal some. The mother tries to stop her but ends up dying.

    The neighbor then decides to take all the money, but another neighbor lady catches her and they split the money. They take the kid to the train station and put her on it.

    Fast-forward, the girl is now a young woman, and the woman who found her and took her in has a sickly son that the girl is now taking care of since the mom has passed away. Once a month or so, the girl takes the boy to see a heart specialist, and the doctor’s mother is one of the ladies that let her mother die while stealing her money.

    Help! what is the name of this drama? I think it was around 2004 when I was watching.

     

  3. A mom who can’t get mad

    The lead is a couple engaged since high school. The guy is busy working in a corporate office so the girl goes to the guy’s nephew/niece’s party by herself. The guy’s family treats the girl like their servant and saying rude things in front of her. Like how their brother should get engaged to someone “better” now that he has a nice job. No one noticed that the girl’s mom also dropped by the party to help. She saw her daughter being treated badly so she left without telling anyone. In the bus ride home, mom drafts an angry text message telling the guy to break up with her precious daughter. Then she deletes it and sends a sweet, sad text asking him to take care of her beloved daughter.

     

  4. Red car ride to mom

    I was looking for this K-drama where the male lead is looking/searching for his mom and these are the scenes that I remembered:

    • Male lead was taken away from his mom when he was a baby or young kid.
    • Male lead was driving a red car going to some place far like an island or a beach.
    • Male lead ordering food from a small restaurant close to the beach and it seems the cook/owner is his mom, but the mom refuse to acknowledge the male lead as her son and there’s a little scuffle with the mom’s husband or boyfriend.
    • There’s another scene with the male lead driving the red car with the female lead, going again to his mom’s restaurant to visit and eat.

    I am not sure if the above info can help at all but I’m really hoping you can name this K-drama for me. Thanks.

     

  5. Free concert at the police station

    I was chatting to some Beanies about singing in the car and then I remembered that there was a scene in a drama where the woman was singing loudly in the car and it was recorded by the dash cam. That was later shown in the police station (as evidence?) and the guy is watching it with the police officers. The woman is mortified but then they watch it again?

    It really bugs me that I can’t remember what drama that is…

     

Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!

#4 I think so too. The car was white, but the interior was red. I don't remember a scuffle either, though, but his mom didn't know he was her son so didn't acknowledge him.

Yes, sounds right for numbers 3 and 4.

My Secret Romance - the car was a convertible but I can't recall it being red.

#4 sounds like La Dolce Vita/Sweet Life, starring Lee Dong Wook. Intense emotions, tortured souls and flawed characters, who are just like all human beings. No fluff and not an easy watch. Requires concentration and focus to peel off layers like an onion. But, magnificent OST and cinematography, great writing and directing. Superb acting, especially by Lee Dong Wook. One of my favorites.

#4 is defenitely My Secret Romance, yes! Is rare that I remember in such detail any dramas I've watched in the last 3 years, but I do remember this one in particular. Red car, restaurant near the beach... yes it is. :D

Lol - I actually liked that drama ("She is Nineteen"/"My Sister In Law is 19") as it features one of my favorite tropes (hero falls in love first). It also featured a very young Yoon Kye Sang who sang one of the OST songs.

I thought it was a sageuk when I was reading the description until I came across the word 'doctor'. The whole thing about the neighbor stealing from the sickly mother and the mother promptly dies afterwards is so makjang that can only exist in sageuk.

I'm curious to find out about the drama

The description posted above is actually the back story so it doesn't really take up that much screen time. Most of the drama is in the "current day" (around 2004 or so when the drama originally aired) and focuses on the relationship between the hero/heroine. The hero spends most of the drama in love with and angsting over the heroine, while the 19 year old heroine spends most of her time crushing on/angsting over the hero's brother (the second male lead) who is the doctor treating the heroine's sick foster brother. The writer of this drama also wrote "The Moon that Embraces the Sun" and "Capital Scandal".

I was thinking the same thing! I only remember watching it back then, the cast, that fact that the brother is a doctor. Other than that, i have no recollection whatsover.

I'm pretty sure I've seen #1. I think it might be Pinocchio.

I thought that that scene ringed a bell to me, but I couldn't pinpoint which drama exactly.
Now that I hear you mention Pinocchio, I think so too.
It's the scene where the two news teams are in a restaurant and speak bad about each other as if the others are not listening.

#4 sounds similar to Uncontrollably Fond. But I can't remember his car color and I never did finish it...But the mom owned a restaurant, acted like she had disowned her son, and I believe there was a kerfuffle in the restaurant.

#4 sounds like a Chinese drama I watched recently (but didn't finish since I couldn't find the last 2 episodes with subtitles...) which was called Faceoff (like the TV show with prosthetic make up). In it, the male lead was separated from his mother at a young age and finds her again in her restaurant but she hides from him. And I think he was driving a red car too. But this "male lead looking for his mother" trop is so often used in dramas that I may be wrong ^^
