Name That Drama: Couple switches and business talks

 
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. Good guard, bad actor

    Hope you can help me. I vaguely recall a K-drama I saw around 7-9 years ago and I’m trying to find the title. I think a couple was in an argument and there was a car crash in the first episode. The guy follows the girl like a guardian as she’s growing up through each episode. Can’t remember if time travel or anything supernatural was involved. And then I remember him playing golf and he thinks he’s a great actor but he’s not. Now I may be mixing 2 K-dramas up. You know how one can blur into the next after a while. LOL Anyway, suggestions what it might be would be appreciated. Sorry I can’t provide better details.

     

  2. We need a chart for this

    I watched a drama during maybe the early to mid 2010s (2010-2015-ish) about a husband (Mr. A) who leaves his wife (Ms. B) for his first love (Ms. C). I can’t remember if he cheats. They have a daughter together. Ms. C has her own son and ex-husband (Mr. D). By the end of the series, Mr. D ends up with Ms. B. I remember that Ms. C has a food company that ends up going bankrupt. The drama might have had around 20-30 episodes but I honestly cannot remember.

    I remember very specific scenes. In a flashback, Mr. A and Ms. B were dressed up as bees and having a jolly time washing the dishes. Another scene has Mr. A selling food on the street because he went broke. Another scene has the daughter (who’s still a kid) kind of run away and get lost from her dad’s place because I think she wants to go back to her mom? Her mom scolds her heavily from worry but when she finds out the reason the girl ran away, they hug? There’s this other scene where Mr. D gives Ms. B a makeover. They also start their own food company/menu and it became very successful, beating Ms. C’s company. But before that there was a scene where Ms. B’s apartment’s furniture was being taken away because she couldn’t pay rent or had a debt. She was hugging her mother and crying. There might’ve been another scene with Ms. B (and maybe Mr. D) in a conference/meeting of sorts where she proposes/explains a new menu she’s come up with.

    Please help me find the drama. I remember loving it back then and it’s been bugging me ever since.

     

  3. Sold! To the wrong customer.

    A woman who works in an interior design company absentmindedly sells a textile design to a customer, probably a carpet or curtain. But the truth is, the design is not meant for sale, as it is meant for a client or for further amendments. That’s the only scene I can remember from a 2000s drama, and I have no idea what happened later. I only know that the drama is either in Japanese or Korean.

     

  4. If you call within the next 30 minutes…

    Hello Beanies, chaebols always throw money around in K-dramas but there’s a particular chaebol that I’m trying to remember. He offers huge money to a poor person in exchange for something that sounds simple. Every minute the poor person doesn’t answer, the offer drops by hundreds of thousands of dollars. At first the poor person hesitates because it sounds like a scam. Eventually, something happens to the poor person and they’re unable to reply even if they wanted to take the offer. Does anyone remember this drama?

     

  5. Bargaining power

    Is there a Korean drama where a girl with superpowers uses it to shop for used clothes? I think she re-sells them as vintage clothing in a hipster style store. I don’t remember what her powers are or how she uses them to pick clothes that will sell, they just do.

     

Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!

It's just a scene in Possessed. The main character is the daughter of a shaman and she has so much psychic power (and stunning taste to be honest) that she can find clothes that have good vibes easily. Her friend has a resale shop where she marks everything up and makes bank on it.

However the majority of the show is about the psychic and a copy teaming up to fight a serial killer who returns from the grave by possessing a copycat killer who idolizes him. IT IS VERY DARK. I had to stop watching it. It's like Se7en levels of dark.

#3 Reminds me of late-2004/early-2005 K-drama โ€œSave Your Last Dance for Meโ€, starring Eugene Kim, Ji Sung & Lee Bo Young)โ€”
Main girl, after a whole lot of stuff happening to her & her moving to the big city after said stuff happening, ends up working for the main guyโ€™s chemical furnishings company where she works in the showroom department, and because of not getting along with some of her coworkers who look down on her, said coworkers do not tell her about some products that were not supposed to be sold (heated floor boards), and main girl ends up selling the products and then gets reprimanded when the client finds out and comes back to give main girl a piece of her mindโ€”because rich people vs. poor main girl

#1 sounds like Goblin with the "fates tied by a car accident", "guardian watches the girl grow up" thing. The part where the guardian brags about being good at golf could be the baseball bet between Kim Shin and Jung Hae-in's character..?

Except that Goblin was only 3 years ago and thereโ€™s no car crash at the beginning of this. Thereโ€™s was an epic battle scene, a ship sinking, an dead woman in the back of a car that Lee Dong Wookโ€™s Reaper damages when it โ€œcrashesโ€ into him, Goblin giving a boy a sandwich in Quebec City and a terrible birthday for Eun Tak where she gets a rice bowel thrown at her head. He doesnโ€™t even know Eun Tak exists until sheโ€™s 19 though.

#1 brings to mind 49 Days as it had a car accident, supernatural elements and a grim reaper guardian and it fits the timeline if it's from 7-9 years ago. Don't know if there were any golf scenes thought.
SECRET also had a couple in a car accident in the first episode.

I thought nr 1 could be You From Another Star. She got in a car accident as a little girl (as well as a sedan chair accident in the historic times) and he's a guardian, watching her grow up.

I really want to know #2. I love stories where a jilted pair get together and are happier without their toxic exes. (If that's what this is saying--I might be reading into it, lol.)

Sadly I can't think of any Kdramas that have that dynamic, that I've watched. There's a lot where the girl's ex gets with the male lead's crush (or vice versa), but I can't think of any with his wife or girlfriend. I think the drama version of 200 Pounds Beauty (was that what it was called, or was that the movie?) was like that, maybe?

Me too! As soon as I read that the jilted pair got together, I so wanted to watch this.

I also support jilted folks getting together and the jilters living miserably-ever-after.

the dramaโ€™s very likely called โ€œstill youโ€!! op got several details wrong, probably because itโ€™s been so long since they last watched it.

Donโ€™t know what #2 really is, but the little girl getting lost to find her mom sounds like my daughter who really got lost when she was almost 3 years old when she was with my husband and decided she wanted to find me and left when he was distracted by a flashing light toy at a Disney kiosk at night. Longest 10 minutes of my life. I just hugged her really tight. Why would you scold a lost kid???

I honestly, for a second, thought that you meant that was the title.

It sounds like a perfect title for a KBS drama special. You know: the one where the high-school girl falls in love with her class mate over trying to solve math problems and later in life understands that her inability to understand math was actually a metaphor for her inability to understand her now-husband who's a math-genius.

Then I realised you were talking about the convoluted plot description.

Never mind.

#1 Truetrue~ The car crash+guarding the girl over the years+bragging about sports kinda match Goblin. Except the airdate. But sometimes people get their dramas mixed up so I hazarded a guess. :D
