Name That Drama: Angry boss wants sweets

 
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. Going against type

    I was talking to my sis the other day and wondering if there are nice female chaebols in dramaland. We watch the same shows but she doesn’t remember this scene and can’t help me guess what is the show. The rich girl goes on a marriage date with a chaebol guy. They knew each other as kids but meeting again after a long time because she studied in the US (of course!). The rich boy is surprised because the rich girl takes him to a tiny rooftop restaurant to eat smelly food and the staff gave her an old looking blanket to cover her legs.

     

  2. Sugary problems

    Help! I don’t know if I imagined this but is there a kdrama show where the head of police has diabetes and always complains about his low blood sugar when junior cops are causing trouble?

     

  3. Be glad it isn’t flying…

    I want to say this drama is at least two years old by now, but I’m not completely certain. It was a drama nominated for something in one of DramaFever’s annual awards. I only saw a scene used by DramaFever for the nomination and voting, but I don’t think it won whatever category it was nominated for. It seemed like some of the characters were living together. The room was a complete mess and there were clothes all over the floor. I remember someone complaining about how messy the room is and then freaking out over a cockroach they saw on the floor. I believe the characters were in their PJs? I can’t remember if the exchange was between two guys or a guy and a girl. I’m sorry I can’t remember more details. Anyways, thank you for your help!

     

  4. More than table manners

    I’m pretty sure this is a show where the girl cross-dresses to attend school but I can’t remember which show it is! I just remember a scene where the lead boy wiped the girl-dressed-as-boy’s lips at lunch. The goofy sidekicks teased the OTP for taking care of each other too much. One of the sidekicks rolled some rice into a ball and put it on his cheek and the other sidekick pretended to wipe it for him. It’s not an old show like Sungkyunkwan or Moonlight Drawn by Clouds because they’re wearing modern uniforms.

     

  5. Be careful what you wish for (no, really)

    Hello! It’s stormy weather here in my country. Sometimes the very strong rain wakes you up at 3am making you expect work and classes will be cancelled but 3 hours later the sun is shining again. I get mad for my disturbed sleep and wish more rain will pour enough to flood and cancel work. Then I remember a scene in a workplace kdrama. The newbies are complaining they are bored. Then disaster happened then one of them said “I forgot that people die. While I’m bored wishing for more work, people can die.”

    When I remembered that, I was guilty because heavy rains kill people or their livelihoods here while I wish for more rain to get more sleep. I wish I can recall what show gave me this thoughtful lesson.

     

Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!

Isn't #1 My Golden Life? That was pretty recent, though.

I feel like I know the cockroach one but it's not coming to the surface of my brain. It's going to drive me crazy, hope someone else knows it. I don't think they're talking about the Shopping King Louie cockroach.

I am think 4 is 'To the beautiful you'. But the thing is it was the second make lead (Eun-geol) who wiped the rice from Go jae- hee face. It will make Eun-geol friend throw a fit of jealousy. πŸ˜‚

I didn't watch To the beautiful you, ie, the Korean version of Hana Kimi, but this scene was definitely from Hana Kimi Taiwan, starring Wu Chun & Ella. I'd never forget this scene coz itz just so funny the way the friends teased the couple. Makes me wanna search for that drama and rewatch it!

I think so too. Here's the first episode preview which shows a little of Naeil's insanely messy room.

NAEIL'S CANTABILE is a good guess. Naeil had bags of garbage all over the place. I recall flies buzzing around.

I can just see Chiaki-senpai swatting the roaches away with rolled up newspaper.

There were lots of flies and there was a cockroach as well.

#5 sounds like the recent 'Live' with Lee Kwangsoo and Jung Yumi.

Yes! Can confirm! Jung Yumi's char was always chancing on huge, dangerous cases and Kwangsoo's char was jealous. He was complaining about wiping vomit from drunk guys every night.

I thought this too, but the question was about a β€œworkplace kdrama,” and while technically a police station is a workplace, I would have thought it be described more as a police drama. And that other rookie policewoman also made a statement about being bored and cleaning the toilets and envying the action the other rookie was getting but then Jung Yumi’s character, still traumatized from seeing her first murder, screams at her for forgetting that these are dead people she’s wishing for, or something like that.

Number 3 could be the short series β€˜The Boy Next Door’. Two guys live together and one is really messy while the other is a neat freak. Choi Woo Shik’s character complains about the messy room and freaks out when he sees a cockroach, then Jang Ki Young’s character pushes him against the wall and kills the roach.

#3. -- In THE BEST HIT, Hyun-jae was afraid of cockroaches. Besides the time he freaked out in the bathroom and came running out in his towel, I vaguely recall his maybe encountering one in the cluttered attic room inhabited by his future girlfriend. (Or am I making this up?)

For number 3 in Witch's Court Lawyer Ma kept a crazy messy apartment--which super irritated the love interest as it was his apartment that he was renting to her. At one after she's too scared to stay in her apartment after that sleazy jerk took secret videos of her they drink together and he takes her to his apartment saying that he'll stay in her apartment until she feels safe again. He drops her in his spotless apartment and he goes back to her apartment and he's so freaked out by how messy everything is (and I do believe there are bugs crawling about) that he spends the entire night cleaning.

I dont know if its the drama being searched for but my janky memory recalled something and here it is.

You are bringing up memories I would just rather forget.
WITCH'S COURT was not one of my favorites. I was annoyed the entire series the way Prosecutor Ma Yi-deum (Jung Ryeo-won) treated Prosecutor Yeo Jin-wook (one of my favorites Yoon Hyun-min.) Ugh!
I really think it is the reason I only got half way through WOK OF LOVE. I just couldn't clear my mind of JRW's performance in WC. Probably irrational but that's the way it is.

Is #2 The Girl Who Sees Smells? I think that somewhere Moo-gak (Park Yoo-chun) mentioned that he had diabetes. I remember this since this is the only police drama that I watched until the end :"D

Beanies I know this is a little OT but I can't remember the name of this American show for pre teens ( I guess) where the daughter of the POTUS lives with this normal family and the boy is an amatuer detective.

Ha Suk-jin should time and space travel to every drama infested with messy rooms and cockroaches and clean up for them. That would solve the problem!

Warning for kdrama characters: keep your rooms clean and watch out for cockroaches or else Ha Suk-jin will enter your life and create messy love triangles.

Hi Beanies, sorry if I don't have an answer for any of these dramas, but I had my own question.
I don't remember exactly what drama it is that the guy who worked at a law firm (either a lawyer or prosecutor) and he has been missing human contact (?) and starts leaning on walls everywhere he goes. Like it is his comfort after everything that has changed for him.
I have an idea what it could be, but wanted to be assured...
Can anyone help???

Definitely Suspicious Partner. He trails his fingers along walls and walks like a zombie.

This really won't solve the problem at hand. But I just wanted to suggest that Kissasian is a site where you can get Korean, Japanese, Thai and Chinese dramas for free. The quality varies from 240p to 1080p. You can browse through drama names or actors' names. Happy drama watching!!
