    If there’s such a thing as a chow mein sandwich, I don’t see why there can’t be a jjajangmyeon sandwich.

I guess this is what happens when you work with seniors.
Junho’s acting comes across so over the top and unsharpened in front of others.. whereas he was really good in JBL, or maybe he just doesn’t get this character.. he is like male candy version.. just shouting ,, some charm is amiss..
Anyhow, the show is good 😊

    Well , Junho was pretty amazing when he was in chief Kim and he was working with seniors too so I don’t think that’s the problem but I agree there’s something missing in his character and I don’t like poong and how clingy he is to Dal Hee even after knowing all what she has done , I have faith in him though so I really hope he gets better in the upcoming episodes.

    He wasn’t that good in Chief Kim also imo, I liked his character there but I wasn’t too impressed with his acting. Just Between Lovers had the same PD with The Package who managed to bring the best out of Jung Yonghwa and Lee Yeon Hee, so yeah that explains a lot. Here, I don’t understand and don’t care about Junho’s character, and started to get annoyed. I like you Junho, so I’m trying my best to like your character.

    I adored Junho in JBL but he’s not doing much for me here. I think it’s mostly the character though. He’s been written as a pretty typical clichéd k-drama hero so far. I think Junho is capable of more so hopefully the character gets more interesting.

Amongst
– Go back spouses
– Here to heart
– Love’s lies
– Husband ok jak do
– Noona
– Live (ep 13 onwards.. have started thrice and dropped it)
– Nirvana (got stuck at ep 8.. not riveting at this point atleast, when will some big twist happen to make me fall in love with this.. although it is clearly a well made drama)
– Also recently found out.. we have boys over flowers season 2.. hana dan.. but well after ep 1.. no motivation really..

What should I pick? Badly need an addictive drama.. is nobody making another version of itazura na kiss ☹

@boradori90 @raonah If Lee Yoo-bi confirms, “A Poem a Day” would be her first drama in three years. For Lee Joon-hyuk, it would be his first lead role, and Gong Myung would be starring in his fourth tvN drama.

lol.. MH is the lead character.. dude BY is going back to him… 100%..how I don’t know.. but she is..
I think MH finally asked BY the most pertinent question: Why can’t she be with Ye the way she truly is 😊

    I think the netz reacted badly to his character so the writer might have swapped him for Ye.

      hmm.. netz can go to hell.. but yeah.. who knows.. that is what happens in these dramas..
      but there is one thing i learnt from “how I met your mother”.. a writer and director need just 50 minutes out of 4000+ minutes to sell you a character 🙂 .. audience has no role.. if story wants they can make MH swoony as hell .. and Ye to fall flat in the last 30 minutes.

Moral of the story:
There is only one good time in life. When the girl proposes, accept it … else girl will find another boy the next day.
Personalities that propagated this fickleness:
Doeksun (Reply 1988, onto 4th or 5th boy), BY (not even sure how many she dreamt of), technically marriage but not dating, secretaries drama that recently ended, ajusshi too where ajumma is off the rail.. so many of the dramas..

Also kdrama logic prevails.. if you are not childhood love, then if you are the first love in the drama, pretty good chance you are the second lead

( DS was.. it was taek who loved her so he came down to her level of dumbness…that was love.. ) .. ( and BY is dumb.. well she always was! *bitter* *on second thoughts, i am bitter but that’s a fact she is dumb in some ways*)

          See its either MH understood, saw her happy and gave up (atleast he isn’t moping around)… or since he was not in hospital today, he doesn’t yet know about MH-Ye.. because its at the very end that staff realized ye is dating BY.. and NW wasn’t there to convey the message (you know to MH)..

          so yeah.. either MH is handling it very maturely.. or he isn’t aware of BY’s affair.

          But then preview doesn’t even show MH and story focus is going to be BY’s career.. so no hopes there

APAD: Season of good rain, and as NW says the poems are about good timing 😊 .. aka MH. Ye has already had his poem about the rain.. and timing wasn’t even wrong.. he was the one to make his decision.. and the rain was a sad rain 😃 😃 😃
Also the title of the episode is “You are an idiot”… not “Wound healing”
I am excited, totally going to bet that BY starts dating Ye in ep 12 😃

7
2

    ep 12: on BY and Ye dating
    – both tell her they have something to say..
    – Ye will reach first, confess, and MH will witness it from afar
    – By goes home, squeals in her bed about actually dating. She is super happy (and like MH pointed out earlier itself, the timing is not right because BY is still infatuated)
    – morning, BY very happy, decked up in blue
    – MH sad.. if he were dating he would be over the top happy right?
    – Mh missing from hospital entire day – either real life issue or he is basically very very very sad becaue BY dating Ye
    – Ye telling BY why she is so obvious (out of character for Ye if she is not dating Ye.. that scene pretty much seals the deal that Ye adn BY are dating)
    – date, walk, dropping her home 😀

    GUessing:
    ep 13 end is when BY starts noticing missing MH or how she feels when MH is not around.. and moving from giddy happy to feeling insecured about not being good or right fit for Ye

    2
    1

      and her expressions when she asks “what did you have to say”.. they are full of respect.. because its Ye in front.. 🙂

      if it were MH.. there would have been a bit of informality, betraying her frustration with herself for being so rude to Dr. Ye .. and general sadness because of whatever transpired during the day..so its Ye who confesses

APAD: finished ep11..and nice! The FIRST step of BY towards actual growing up. This is the type of character growth moment I was seeking from this drama for BY. When GB agreed to get his treatment, she quickly jumped to conclusion it is because of her (before anyone else, MH echos it much later in another scene in the therapy room). She really didn’t need anyone to tell her that GB’s change in decision could be because of her, she just jumped to that conclusion. No wonder MH called her “PRETENDING” to be nice.

Technically, she is cheerful , emotional, and a positive personality (she always has been) but really what is it that she has done that has truly changed someone’s life or shown maturity at any point. She works hard but does she work smart? But all that positivity goes away when she is home (where you can be you.. with respect to step bro)
So, this much needed realization that people have tough life besides her, and that rich people do not have easy (as she pointed to Ye.. and maybe MH in the past) … is good for her..
Mature crybaby bo young 😊 .. this has to be the best moment of what Ye can teach her as MH teaches her that she acts in not graceful ways (its just that she is young and cute so gets a free pass.. the antics suit her because she is genuine.. but nevertheless are immature actions)

APAD: The basic thing is, this is youth drama. There is nothing adult about it. It’s a fun show. Most of the characters are of same age group. Elders are side character. This drama is not even slice of life because apart from radiology dept. there really isn’t much focus on other characters- yes, small side stories.. but too small to be important part throughout the 16 episodes, they rise their head once in a whole then another side story comes up. And most of all, BY is a childwoman.
Dramas that want to be adult dramas weave their motif around that. Example Ajushi, goblin.. where main characters/ more in focus ones are adults. But in APAD, most of characters in focus are young ones – the story starts with two boys going to a hospital. We have lots of moments of boys goofing around.. not so much between the adults (their interactions are not entangled.. its either on outings or when everyone needs to come together to discuss some character’s problem
JDH after his second lead , did lead role in drama special with chae soo bin.. why would he bother being a second lead again? Because this drama is not tilted much towards the adult and since led actress is shown to be a childwoman who has a LOT of growing up to do, I can’t get my head around as to why and how Ye is the end game? It should be minho

    Majority of second leads have been main leads in drama specials, LJH has also been in one (naked fireman plus morning drama House of Bluebird).
    Actually age-wise everyone is adult? It’s not a high school drama, not all leads need to be 17 years old. Plus, nearly all the characters are slowly getting their stories/majority of episode dedicated to only them-Bo Young’s neighbor, Defconn, jerky therapist, boss.
    Actually I have no idea what growth you are talking about in Bo Young’s case, she is nice to people, good at her job, thoughtful. She is awkward sometimes but it isn’t something you can change.

      Naked Fireman my next drama to watch once APAD finishes.

      and your words above gave me sigh of relief *still i am not sure abt my ship* but yes some motivating words for sure.

      nah.. they are not same age..its not a workplace drama.. its clearly youth.. By has been working for 2 years right.. so that makes it post graduation.. she is 23-25. Ye, director, BY’s roommate.. they are all significantly old.. Youth drama doesn’t mean 17 yr olds.

      Side characters – there is no running theme.. like i said, they get a story .. it completes in an episode and the another side story comes up for some other character.. they are side stories.. not part of main plot

      The growth i am talking about is how character arc changes over the span of the story.. where do you see a change in BY? Why is this drama a BY drama? Her behavior is exactly the same.. people around her change to adapt to her.. she is not changing…but she is the protagnist.. s where is the growth..

      which basically means BY is not going to change.. which in turn means.. we are back to this being youth drama.. because that’s how it started..

      The only growth that Bo Young need to go through is about how to ‘be’ in a relationship.

      I think that Min ho’s observations that she behaves with Dr Ye the same way as she behaved with him are actually quite important in terms of how Bo Young needs to grow. Cleaning someone’s car/office are not healthy ways of showing affection in my personal opinion. So maybe she needs to learn the difference between infatuation and love?

      But there are clear signs of growth there already, which I really liked, for example she accepted Dr Ye’s rejection with a level of maturity that we hadn’t seen in her personal interactions with him before.

      I actually wondered if she’d ever had a (serious) boyfriend. Do we know?

      8
      1

        valid point… about the bigger arc.. i like your point.. maybe its about BY learning what a romantic relationship really means (not fantasies) and how to be in one..

        don’t know about her having bf.. but honestly 🙂 doubtful.. else she wouldn’t be so pitiful when it comes to proposing boys

        On BY’s growth: the way she handled Ye’s rejection was inline with the character no? When her patients look down upon her, when colleagues look down upon her, when everyone is rejecting.. she actually takes all of it in her stride.. she ain’t angry with them, she doesn’t harbour any ill feelings, she doesn’t mope around them.. she actually finds a positive perspective to it and handles her emotions well..

        the only time i do see her react is when she is with NW and MH.. not even JY for that matter.. (and technically with NW . .. i have seen her behave that way only once.. when he was arguing for MH.. on why she keeps blaming MH for everything)

        2
        1

          Yes, the way she handled Dr Ye’s rejection was absolutely in line with her character. But during that conversation, she was finally being with him the way she was with other people around her: not purely in awe of him (or aiming to have him have a good impression of her as in the early episodes) but carefully & caringly outspoken.

    Even though I am techically not on any ship for apad and I am now working with helping YeLiners survive with Yetherapy

    but if I remember correctly in Goblin it was about the adult being an endgame with a child(woman).
    So it works the other way I guess.
    Claim: Use the same argument for My Ahjussi
    I thought we hadd insane amount of protests as well about it.

    3
    3

      i was not on DB or anywhere active on internet so i really dont know if Goblin create similar age fiasco (old male lead and young female lead). but i loved that drama.

      Regarding Ahjussi… i started watching it with expectation on love line but now after watching 11 episode m not on love line bandwagon. I cant feel DH has anything othwr than genuine concern n care for JA as a responsible adult in her life.

      next… no one is worried abt age difference in Noona who buys me food then why its so big of a deal in Poety…thats my question. I love noona Romance and dont think age should between lovers should be factor to accept or reject their togetherness.

      So for poetry…if BY loved Dr. Ye and he too feels the same.. i really dont think how its not a good match.

      *long post…* sorry for one looong post.
      but anything for dr.ye.

        Well, there were some issues with Goblin age gap but nowhere as close as ahjussi.

        I started My ahjussi with the expectation of no romance, since this kind of story is extremely extremely close to my heart. I had a gang of old ahjussi friends when I was same age as JA or even younger. (So I am waiting for the drama to end and watch it with them.)

      nope.. how many “child” characters did you have in goblin? – 1… and she wasn’t at the center of the things..
      everyone else was old.. (and not fantasy old, but legit old).. the only other young character was seung jae who relegated to bring the comic relief and host god..

      Goblin was clearly not a youth drama.. it was an adult drama.. so yes.. the love story was always going to have an adult hero.. or older for lack of better words..

      Every story has a theme.. and more importantly, eun tak was very mature. .. not a childwoman.. she didn’t act rashly .. the only one she acted cute towards was goblin because she saw him as her savior.. BY is a legit childwoman.. irrespective of people around her.. and she ain’t growing in that respect aka turning into a mature woman anytime soon.. her character is a complete misfit if this drama is supposed to be a workplace slice or life or .. a drama that is focusing on older/mature characters

          Lol…childwoman doesnt mean dumb..nor does being child..what it means is the innocence that comes with lack of experience..

          So dont confuse gobli n reapers comic banter by them being childish overall…

          Overall you see mature chara ters in the sister..in g9blin…in reaper…in director..in manager…and even in seung jae..the drama never gives you youth feel..it is romance but in no frame is it youth drama…

        Well, My ahjussi for me is not a romance drama but its just again that the lead girl is still with very large age gap and she has a lot of learning to do but you don’t feel sometimes the need for it, it feels like she needs care and guidance.
        Somebody she can look back and ask if she is doing right because they have more experience with life.

        Goblin is not a slice of life drama! It was a fairy tale. The little girl asked for a boyfriend and got one. who was 920 years old. Why do you call it slice of life?
        (Note : Slice of life is Misaeng.)

        Eun tak had seen a lot of life but so has BY, its just in different ways they deal with it, some show it with a gloomy face but that’s not mature while others just decide to put up with it by not taking it to heart and not being gloomy about it. But in both the case none of the characters learn anything much.

        I finished ep 8 of apad and I hope this girl learns to speak for herself or tell people to get lost.
        Now the point was endgame: (You listed two dramas in both of which the old guys loves/helps the young girl.)
        First Dr. Ye being a misfit:
        He is also like them in every other way, he is like a machine who forgot how to see people, he thinks he knows the best and keeps on giving advises. He is really like a child who got the highest marks in test knows everything in the book and tries to boss around does’nt know what he wants.
        In that respect he is more fit with Bo young for she sees the feeling oand pain in other people and is in touch with her emotions. He needs to understand his emotions and she need to learn to not being blown away by them.
        So your claim about Dr. Ye being misfit and not getting the girl was not easily derivable given your examples.
        Now if this is what will happen. That I don’t know and I am not taking the blame if they have no character growth, I am not the person writing it. 🙂
        *ah its to long :(*

          I never called goblin slice of life…i said it was centered around older characters. You miss the point..eun tak was not the central character…apad by is the central character and while she is meant to symbolize innocence but her behavior is child like…her depth of character becomes apparent when you look in comparison to the young lot..from adults perspective not so much because then she is hardworking polite colleague wanting the job…she hasnt been a source of comfort to director…dr.kim..dr.park..two interns..but from colg to now..she does have an impact on d boys…what she does with patients..its the boyz who witness it more than cleagues..

          I m curious why do you think ye doesnt know what he wants..on the contrary he always knows…even when rejecting by .. he knew his reasons. We havent seen him continuously interrupting people on how they plan treatment…then how is he the arrogant top scorer in the test…you say he forgot to treat people..agIn no evidence…he could have become the director..none of his advices have been wrong fro. Professional ethics perspective…he knows very well how to treat people..and neither is he someone who has given up on the world..far from it..he had an affair..and was heartbroken..happens to all of us..so dr. Ye was anx is very mature

          My only point is..if they were to be the end vame..the entire environment around them is misfit because it does not resonate with their dynamics..not at all..
