Name That Drama: Breaking locks and faking fingerprints

 
Ready for another round of drama-sleuthing? Help out your fellow Beanies or use this form to send in your own questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.
 

  1. Heart-stopping finale

    There’s this drama that’s still on my mind for even more than a decade. It’s this South Korean daily drama (either made by KBS or MBC) that had its run in Singapore in the noughties for as long as I could remember. I vividly remember there’s this final episode in the drama where the female lead is in critical condition, and her heart stopped many times in the hospital ICU. I also remember that the male lead was distressed at the prospect of losing the female lead every time her heart stopped, but eventually she is safe and sound, and they even had a family portrait at the very end of the drama. It could be from MBC’s Miss Mermaid (2002), but I’m not sure so I’m asking if anyone who watched daily dramas know of such a scene. Thanks.

     

  2. Who needs a lockpick?

    Okay, here it goes… The scene starts with a girl with balloons goes to her boyfriend’s flat to greet him… only to find out that he’s cheating on her and breaks up with her. She is devastated.

    Next scene I remember is, she goes to N Seoul tower with bolt cutter to cut that padlock where she locked her love.

    One night her pointed heels got stuck in gully grating she struggles to take it out but all in vain. Next day a delivery guy deliver her shoes but from anonymous sender.

    Hope it helps. Please can you tell me or find the name of drama/movie. I’m pretty sure it’s Korean.

     

  3. Poor cucumber

    Hello beanies, can you help me remember this recent drama or webseries? There’s a guy who saw another guy naked. It shocked him so much that later, he can’t look at cucumbers during the company dinner.

     

  4. Shady student

    I’m not sure if it’s a korean drama or a webseries but I have a specific scene stuck in my head and it’s driving me crazy! Basically, after class, this girl goes up to the main character and asks her to post in the class group chat to remind them to do section 1 through 4 for their homework. The main girl does, but the next day, the teacher asks them why they didn’t do the right assignment (the real assignment was sections 1 through 5), and he says that he’ll have to take off points. The teacher asks the girl why she didn’t remind the classmates, and the girl says that she asked the main character to post it, so the class blames the main character. Later, a friend of the main character checks the main character’s notebook and sees that she only did sections 1 through 4, whereas the girl did the correct assignment.

     

  5. You don’t know that I know you know

    I only remember this one scene where Character A is pretending to be someone else and Character B is suspicious. B sends A’s used teacup to forensics for fingerprint analysis. B is surprised when A’s fingerprints are a match. It turns out A knows he’s being suspected all along and wore a membrane thingy to fake his fingerprints.

     

Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!

Number 5 is a lot like Ms. Ma, although I was actually confused as to what went on. She drank from a bottle or cup at the police station.

The part from 2 about finding out her boyfriend is cheating sounds like Marriage Not Dating but I don't think the rest matches up.
#3 reminds me of GOT7 😂
I feel like I saw #5 or a similar scene in another drama but can't remember what drama it was.

and I cant remember the drama name *oops* *tries to think*

#3 is funny tho. LOL

No. 5 sounds like Switch with Jang Geun-suk. I remember just before the real guy was well again they did a few maneuvers to throw people off and that was one of them. I think later in the episode they did a switcheroo and the real one stepped in for the fake just in the nick of time.

I always think that I’ve seen a lot of dramas. But then I read these and I hardly ever know any. Guess I’ve still got some watching to do.

I’ve seen the cucumber one! It’s one of my fave eps of that show.

Clues:
- It’s a drama, not webseries
- It aired in 2019
- The scene doesn’t involve the leads but is about the side characters

(I’ll post the answer next week if no one can guess.)

But was the cucumber a gherkin, a kirby, or maybe an english cucumber? I have questions.

Why does my brain do this?

I was just at the farmer's market. So many different cucumbers, and me trying not to giggle inappropriately. DB is a bad influence.

I have def seen #2!

I’m not sure if this was all one drama, but the cheating scene made me remember of this drama where female lead walked in to the room and found out that her boyfriend / fiancé slept with her best friend?? The guy was nonchalantly putting his white dress shirt on and I think it was the girl who talked to female lead about what she had just walked into? I’m trying to remember what drama this was from..... the best friend had bob haircut 😵😵

Checked out episode 1 again And yes! It almost checked off the scene in my mind. I remember the best friend clad in a towel too. So this might be the drama I was talking about! Thanks!

Hmmm in my memory, that scene seemed more melancholic. But hey I can never depend on my memory alone 😅
