    Loved this scene.
    Want to wrap them in bubble wrap until everyone else comes to their senses and leaves them alone.

    His smile when she asked if she could make ramen……

      The simple act of entering your loved ones personal space was portrayed so beautifully. The fact she was in his home meant so much to him. That she felt comfortable enough yet was respectful to ask him if she could cook his ramen in his house. His smile was everything.

      I will not be surprised if the ending is less than happy….especially after listening to the book quote.

      Btw, does anyone know which book that was?

Ahn Pan seok’s decision to bookend these last two dramas is brilliant. Something in the Rain focused on the matriarchal side of the coin, where One Spring Night is all about the patriarchal response

My guess? We are about to see the slow-mo drop of the iron fist of a male-dominated society try to crush our lovebirds. This is very typical of the director; he spends the first half building intimate, emotional connections amongst our protagonists, then he spends the second half throwing them to the wolves by placing them on a broader stage with societal trials and tribulations.

I’m not sure my heart is strong enough to suffer this.

    Please God no, my heart will break and it cannot take it because I’m so needlessly almost unhealthily invested in their relationship.

      I sincerely hope they are correcting their mistake in SITR. What’s with the same mother playing this amazing character here. That one scene when she reads the situation and confronts her son in law (e 7) was all I needed.

        @mayhemf …..but I don’t think it was a mistake. I think a broader audience went into SITR expecting a noona romance, and not the thoughtful (difficult) heft of this director’s work (in all fairness, none of his works were completely recapped by Dramabeans in the past). By using the same cast, he’s showing us the problem is the system, not the individual (swoon!😍😍😍)

          I have said this before, I would have liked SITR better had the leads never got together in the end. Thats where it felt abrupt and ‘what was the point of all this’ feeling. I do see what the writer is getting at and thanks for that insight.

          Sorry beantown, I will disagree, my problem with pretty noona was not the expectation of a fluffy romance, but of character growth of the female lead and the extreme patronizing behavior of the male lead character. (@greenfield comment how the male lead is very communicative in One Spring night). The male lead in pretty noona is exactly what Ki-Seok is in One Spring night. They do what they think is right and donot every ask for the other person’s opinion. So sad.
          Like @mayhemf said, the ending was everything wrong with the show, it showed us problems, of everyone making decisions for the female lead from her office harassers, her abusive ex boyfriend, over the top mother and then even her boyfriend. When would she make decision for herself, when will she tell them to stop and live her life. Which was where they went in the last episode, when she went to live in Jeju, but then the boyfriend appears again and no one address the elephant in the house.
          The show never showed the matriarchal side of disapproval, it was just mother upholding the patriarchal values to the top.

          I think the families are well-suited…….and I think Jung ins dad will improve once he’s retired and out from under the chairman.

      @ally-le Ha! It is Maine!
      It is Long Island in Casco Bay, an hours boat ride out of Portland.
      New England beaches are glorious, (and underrated…..though it might have something to do with the chilly waters😀)

        Whoa!!! I didn’t know Maine looked like that!

          @ally-le Maine’s well-deserved nickname is Vacationland, USA, but most of the beaches out New England way are worth the visit- Cape Cod, the Vinyard, Newport, the list goes on…If you end up traveling out this way, absolutely try to squeeze in beach time!!

    I want to watch this an Confession, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to find subs.

      @ndlessjoie I have discovered DramaC**L and they typically have subs for most- as well as a lot of older dramas. I pay for all the others (including DF, may it rest in peace) so I am completely guiltfree if I have to go off the grid. I use an ad blocker app which helps

        Sometimes the subs are terrible though. It’s making me think more seriously about learning more Korean (I only understand enough to know when subs are really missing the mark). It’s also making me hope for a new start up to take over where DF left off.

          @ndlessjoie Yes, the caliber of subs is a real issue. For example, I tried to watch Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food early on, but the subs were such google gibberish that I gave up.
          I wonder how Netflix is doing it, so far I find their subs to be accurate, adequate and timely.

Also buried in the article is the reason for all the soundtrack substitutions.
Or, as I like to call it, ” Why they pulled the plug in Dramafever!”

    Wow. This is so sad. They have no idea how much the fans relied on DF.

      They really didn’t seem to care, it was strictly a moneymaking venture. I hope the fired execs win their discrimination suit.
