Wow, I love, love, love Suspicious Partner! ??? Finally, out of my slump. It took one show. I was so excited that I watched it raw. Good thing my Korean(language) is improving.

I\’m going to start Nodame Cantabile marathon. That is the anime, jdrama & the kdrama version. For those who are fan of the show & have seen all three, should I watch them at the same order as above?

    I would! I know some people dont mind the order and like to watch shows independently but I like to know the original material first so i can see the changes (for better or worse) they do in the remakes. I did the same when I marathoned BOF anime, korean, japanese and taiwanese version. Good Luck!!!! Dont forget the snacks lol.

        Lol I was going to ask how it is going but you already met Bo Gum so you must be passed episode 4 or so.

          Yeah. I’m already done with the Korean version. Halfway through the Japanese. Almost done and then we can set the movie. Hehehe. I am alternate watching it with Lucky Romance. 😊

    Oh is there Korean version of Nodame? Curious if they can pull it off as great the J-Drama did.

      Simply put, no.

      It’s not the level of the anime but I prefer k-version because it’s more what I’m used to. For the anime feel, jdrama is better.

      Yep, there is. Joo Won is playing the male lead. I think it’s worth checking out.

        I hadn’t seen Joo Won so I wasn’t as excited as everyone else. But after watching, I think of him as a puppa. He’s adorable.

        Plus, Nae-il Cantabile introduced me to Park Bo Gum and let me see Go Kyung Pyo again. So it’s totally worth it.

          I love Gaksital and his portrayal there but it was Yong-Pal that we first met. 😊 I think he is a great actor. Looking forward to his character here in Nodame. I was surprised to see PBG and GKP names in the cast. I haven’t seen them both before the Answer Me series.

    I went anime, kdrama, jdrama.

    I suggest anime, jdrama, kdrama. And fit the jmovies where you will. I still haven’t watched them. We can watch them together.

      Thank you. I will start with the anime then. 😊 Re:movies, yeah we can do that. Maybe, set a date and time? 😊

        Definitely! I’m not live watching right now so whenever you get to the movies let me know. We could try to finish within a few days of each other.

    I attempted the anime but couldn’t stomach it, the Japanese drama is better (mostly because of Uero Juri).

      1997 was heartbreaking. 1988 is my favorite of the three. You might want to give them a try. 😊

        Can you put into words why 1988 was your favorite? Or just a feeling?

        R97 is my fav but I’ve never rewatched so that might be nostalgia.

          The 1988 families really tug at my heartstring. It reminds me of my childhood where we live in a block where everyone grew up together. It’s funny because we also share food around, mothers gossiping, spending meal time together, etc. I also love 1997 and can totally see myself in the characters shoes when I was in highschool but it’s 1988 that I love the most, I can almost see my childhood and family’s story reflected in that drama.

            The family connections seems to be a popular love amongst beanies.

      It definitely was. A caffiene-loaded, sleep-depraved, heartbreaking and funny at the same time, rollercoasterโ€‹ ride that was. 😁

        so, how it was? did your ship sink? or did it sail? :p

          1994. My ship, oh my ship. It was put on 🔥, and as if it was not enough, it was blown away into pieces. Sank into the deeps of the Pacific Ocean.

          1988: Because I never learned my lesson, I happen to be on board the same ship again.

    Even 1994? I never got around to finishing it! 1997 was great and still a nostalgic favourite, plus SIG is life. But 1988 was all kinds of wonderful!

      Yep. It left me scarred for life. 💔 I happen to ship Team Chilbongie, I am still picking up broken pieces of heart 4 years after the fact at that.

        Oh I have heard the Chilbongie fever was bad. Please tell me you picked the ship that finally sailed in 1988. Otherwise, that would be quite tragic!

          As much as I love Park Bo-gum, I was secretly (or not so secretly) rooting for Ryu Jun-yeol. I guess I have a score to settle with the AM series writer. I’m partly to be blamed though, I never learned my lesson.

          2

            Thank goodness I never shipped any couple! It was quite clear in 1997 who the husband will be.

            1994 was too much of a headache with all the husband hunting for me to finish.

            1988 was just so much more than shipping that I never had to actively take any side. But I have to admit I did think that Ryu Jun Yeol would be ‘it’. His character had all the trappings of the male lead while Taekie was the adorably sweet second lead who I was hoping would atleast not die. Plus I had recently come from IRY so I had a sweet spot for him.

            I did wonder if there will be a twist. I wrote this comment way before ep 19:
            “I know Taek will not be the end game. Jung Hwan is the archetypal kdrama lead and I really love him too (his crush is too cute). And by now, we all know AM writers well enough to expect what they are going to do. But just in case, the writers try to use that very factor against us? That would be so cool! As in, what if Taek finally gets the girl in the end! That is something beyond my imagination but it would be freakingly cool!”

            I am so happy I got to see Ryu Joon Yeol in Lucky romance and fall completely in love with him there!

            Sorry for the long post!

            @obsessedmuch You pretty much sum it all up. That was a pretty cool prediction. Was LOL with you hoping that Taek will not die. After 1994, I was not much into the husband hunt anymore, maybe slight? Hahaha. I haven’t watch Lucky Romance yet because of the mix reviews but I heard Ryu Jun-yeol is one of the best things in that drama.

          I’m having a blast because I have some free time right now. It’s a rare thing for me coz my schedule is always full and planned out 24/7. Hoping to marathon a lot of shows and meet up with friends this weekend to catch up. I am loving this new DB right now, makes our interaction a lot easier and fun. 😊 Anyway, any plans for the weekend?

            Shows and friends are a great way to spend the weekend.

            I have to renew my CPR but that’s all my plans so far. Might have a quiet weekend at home.
