- Studies show studying coffee can keep you awake
I was having a hard time remembering this drama I watched several years ago. All I remember was that a female character has just gotten a job in a coffee shop. She’s familiarizing herself with the different kinds of coffee so she tastes them all in order to memorize each one. She couldn’t seem to get herself to sleep sometime later because of all the caffeine she has taken in. hahaahaha.
- Suicide squad
This is newer, 2016/2017, and the title of it is on the tip of my tongue, but danged if I can get it out. Basically three young folks are struggling with finding employment. They find themselves on a bridge together, get hospitalized together, go to supper together, then get hired together. They have a kind of jerk boss who’s new to the company, but he seems to have a soft spot for them for all the mistakes he lets them get away with. The main female character thinks she has a terminal illness. At one point, she’s at the hospital for it and she and mean-ish boss have a cute conversation wherein she refers to another supervisor as something like “dog manager,” looks sheepishly at mean-ish boss, who doesn’t correct or scold her, just repeats it with a little smile. There’s a lot of other little stories throughout, but if you’ve seen it, you’ll definitely know what it is from that. You guys, this show was so cute and I cheered so hard for these struggling kids and I would love to revisit it. Please please please put a name to it for me.
- Kid exchange
Hello! The little I remember from this drama isn’t alot to go on but it’s something 🙂 Its probably a weekend drama and is about a family who raised a girl that they found and while the father treats her nicely the mother uses her to do all sorts of work. Then her biological family finds her but the mother tells them that her own child is the missing daughter. I remember a scene a little late in the show when the truth came out, the girl refused to go to her biological family because she feels like the adoptive family is her family but the mother is mean to her to try to force her to go. I thought it was My Golden Life but it wasn’t that one so I thought I would try my luck here!
- Name that lie detector
My friend asked me about this particular scene in a drama/movie and I’m not sure if I just don’t remember or I haven’t watched it in the first place. In the story, the male lead was a “human lie detector” –he would always able to tell if someone’s lying to him as he could feel it in some ways. This particular scene happened on his wedding day, the male lead and the female lead were about to get married. But the bride suddenly called off the wedding. She told the groom “I don’t love you anymore!!” She was actually lying (being a noble idiot, I guess), but the male lead couldn’t sense anything at all, therefore he was shocked as he thought she was telling the truth. But what actually happened is that he had lost the ability of being a human lie detector, –he could no longer detect lies. I don’t know the reason. My friend also doesn’t remember it. That’s all she’s got!
Now I’ve seen numerous dramas and movies about the characters being able to detect someone’s lying, but I don’t remember this particular scene. Please help my friend (and me) find this drama. Thank you!
- A safe VR game
I can’t get this scene out of my head. There’s a very stressed and sad girl so a guy takes her to a VR game room instead of the usual arcade games. They wear a huge VR helmet and they’re trying to cross a narrow beam on top of a very tall building. I can’t recall if he’s the lead or just a friend or a sidekick. It’s not Memories of the Alhambra because the VR game is just harmless fun and not that realistic.
Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!
