Beanie level: Wrongly accused fugitive

wul bo young’s hallucination must have gotten into me lol, but I watched ep 10 properly only now, and each time her spell was broken by the shenanigans, I thought it was hinting at something. :S Lol. And then first getting burnt, then the seaweed slap and then getting wet in water. At the end, the firecrackers and she smiled. Like a genuine big smile. And the imaginary dr. ye didn’t come back. And they took happy pictures. Lol by this time I guess I will just keep watching the show like I want to watch it. 🙄😂😂#APAD

        Seriously while watching the YT videos, my reactions : I don’t get it, Dr. Ye doesn’t like BoYoung but because she confessed he suddenly likes her to the point of chasing her : this is almost nonsensical for me in terms of character writing and plot 😩, and that is what scares me now because if they go nonsense well our ship is threatened 😰, and we got another week of waiting aish😒 *well actually I still have ep10 to watch when it’ll be subbed lol*

          Seriously while watching the YT videos, my reactions : I don’t get it, Dr. Ye doesn’t like BoYoung but because she confessed he suddenly likes her to the point of chasing her–
          To me that’s lazy writing. That trope has been so much overused by now. Why does he even like her? He was treating her like a robot even last week.
          I have to say though I did like the poem angle of this drama, but dr. ye and bo young are just too different to fall for each other. And not to say, I saw bo young’s attachment to dr. ye as infatuation/admiration till day. Haha anyway, *slowly detaching myself from this sloppy mess.

          2
          2

            me too I wrote it before : it’s rare in a drama for me but I have no interest in Dr Ye character also I’ve never warmed up to his character , I’ve never seen Yeline as end game, still can’t imagine/see/understand it. In ep2 or 3 BoYoung said she wants to have Dr Ye as role model : I always seen her crush as admiration rather than love, so high five chingu 🙂

          Guys, I love our puppy MinHo & I root for his happiness together with BoYoung, but I think though I see BY’s feelings for Dr. Ye as admiration only I think he likes BY already even before her confession in episode 9. I don’t get why he rejected her though. This writer is really messing with our emotions, it’s the first time I got upset while watching.

            I could tell you what made me think that even if he felt something for bo young, his expressions/ attitude/ towards her and other people was what a person falling in love would do. The transition was also way too quick imo, he became a robotic person to a man who suddenly feels for bo young just cause he rejected her. There wasn’t enough reason for him to fall for bo young as well. Half of the time he was stopping her in between sentences, like for example when she put her hand into his pocket. His matter of fact expressions made it worse for me.
            But also it could be that I’m bias towards min ho and also the fact that I’m not a fan of lee jun hyuk lol. Ever since bluebirds’ house. I only liked him as a shady person in strangers, where I thought his persona suited the character. But I am not much of his fan when he’s a lead in a conventional rom-com.

            Haha @giegie0384 I’m not a fan of LJH true, ‘but’ my reason for not seeing why dr.ye would fall for bo young stems from a couple of logical reasons[at least to me], I have talked about it a bit in previous comments in other places. I usually don’t watch dramas where I don’t find the otps interesting enough, but at least I can still see why they could work out even if in my book they don’t. But I can understand that you have some soft corners for Dr. Ye which is totally fine! 😉

      They totally ruined the beach scene. Even what happened with the imagination of bo young wasn’t productive enough.
      On another note, to me this turns into another typical kdrama, since min ho is out of the picture. :/ I even doubt they are ever gonna tell us why min ho rejected bo young in the past..
      I’m sorry but Dr. Ye is boring as a wall. I don’t see any chemistry. 🙁 *Slowly exits from this drama.

Lol nonsensical rant coming, feel free to ignore. :D. If minho-young doesn\’t happen then APAD is actually another typical romcom. :/
I can\’t even see why bo young fell for Dr. JW. It seems more like infatuation to me.[Also what\’s not helping is the fact that I\’m not that much a fan of lee joon hyuk lol]. Anyway, my fault for failing to detect the typical kdrama recipe. Hoping that jang dong yoon\’s next drama will be better. -_-

I\’m half way through EP 4 but with more time the chance of min Ho and Bo Young getting together is becoming thin. 😅 I\’m becoming more and more like defcon\’s doctor. Will they? Won\’t they?
I have to say I really like Bo Young but her tranced look at Dr. Ye is starting to look more and more like deok sun\’s blind attention to Sun Woo. If she really loves him she really needs to stop acting like a pushover. And not lose herself just because of a guy. :S I can\’t with how all the time she\’s trying to prove herself. You don\’t have to girl! You\’re already awesome!

Jokes apart, I am not watching the new episodes of \’a poem a day\’ in fear that uri Min Ho is hurting pretty bad out of jealousy strokes. 😅 I don\’t really understand how the story is going to turn out, but Dr. Jae Wook seems so distant in all those clips [that I have watched for spoilers?] Am I assuming wrong? :S I have already seen how a puppy gets crushed on \”drinking solo\”, so I really hope the writer does something new this time. Otherwise, It would be like a recycled storyline. Anyway I wish I could time travel and see the ending. 😅

      Me too. 😓 I also feel like Bo young is more star struck with Dr. Ye lol 😅. I am confused if it can be defined as love. Don’t know if it’s acting problem or that’s how the script is written.

      1
      1

        I think with Dr Ye it’s a combination of being star struck and being so grateful for finally being professionally recognised. I totally get that. I just don’t think she should date him.

        In Drinking Solo, I knew from the start that the puppy was going to get heartbroken. Here, I think uri Min ho has got a good chance. If he cuts out the rolling-on-the-floor tantrums 🙂

After the much desired subs were out, I have finally watched pretty noona, but oddly (I bet I\’ll have to go to jail for saying this 😅) I din\’t like it a lot. I mean it hasn\’t blown me away, :S. Son Ye Jin is like a goddess, but for some reason I feel like Jung Hae In doesn\’t have much chemistry with her? And he still looks a bit too young? I don\’t know. Which is weird because I even thought he looked good with Suzy.
Things that I liked about the drama.
1. The cinematography.
2. Realistic sets. It makes me so happy when they show real sunlight instead of studio lights lol. And Son ye jin\’s wardrobe, and shoes. 😍
3. Son Ye Jin. I think I would have loved it more if there was no hero lol. She has this strong screen presence which is hard to ignore.
4. I don\’t know why but I feel like Lee min Ho would have suited this role more. Lol maybe I will go rewatch \’personal taste\’ taking this chance.
5. For a drama which hasn\’t hooked me up with the main OTP it\’s funny that I still liked it overall. I can see myself completing this one just for the sake of the show itself. The show gives me jdrama vibes at times.

Things that I didn\’t like for sure, apart from the points above: 😅

1. Too much office drama. It got repetitive at some point.
2. The music is too loud. I feel like the English songs are kind of redundant here.
3. Most importantly the male lead. :/ I hope my opinion will change in the course of the whole run.

    I wanted to post sth similar but hesitated probably don’t want to go to jail…I haven’t even finished the first episode but will try to maybe I will like it then….I loved the scene where they first met though, with the bicycle and stuff cos it felt real….thats all I liked though…
    And also the English song…was kinda weird….

      Hahaha.. it’s hard to like a drama completely isn’t it. That first meet song is the one from trailer right. I found it cute too. Son Ye Jin is seriously so pretty!
      I especially hated that English song, also it was used tiresomely for the whole length of the episode. Also maybe just me, but I am more in favor of the Korean songs as bgm rather than english ones.

    I’m lukewarm too—but it’s early. There were flashes of cuteness, of course, like when he’s on that couch in her office and flashes his million watt cheeky smile—for some reason that melted me. The office antics are already tiresome.

    The first episode was a lot of setting up of the story, and I’m not totally ga-ga over it yet, but then I don’t usually fall in love with a show straight out of the box.

    Going forward, if they spend too much time on the workplace shenanigans, I’m probably out. Boring, don’t care. I do like the chemistry between the two leads though. Its just simmering right now, but if handled right, I can see it exploding. I like Jung Hae In, and find him much more interesting an actor than Lee Min Ho, but that’s just my own opinion and taste.

    The cinematography is lovely. I feel like so many more dramas are being filmed beautifully lately.

    It’s the other way around. I’m the one in jail for loving it :).

    It’s good to hear others opinion seriously. I hope you won’t hesitate to share your views on any drama regardless.

    I’ve been trying for years to like Lee Min-ho but I just couldn’t fall for his acting or charms (shoot me).
    JB would probably take the first shot at me lol.

    I’m probably the only crazy person who finds that kind of office stuff and politics interesting. There is romance but there is also other real life issues to deal with especially in Korea.

    I’m glad you are giving it a try. Hope the stuff that you like will outweigh the things you don’t like.

      @kiara @greenfields Although Lee Min Ho has bad reputation for acting in cheesy dramas like heirs, 😂, he is kind of a good actor. Like watch him on faith if you want to see him in a serious role. I do hope he does something different next time instead of these typical cheesy romcoms.

        Have you seen his movies? He is much better in “Gangnam Blues” (R-rated) than his dramas imo.

        I’m very picky when it comes to sageuks so I dropped “Faith” pretty early.

          About sageuk, I can understand. Maybe you didn’t like the pairing?
          I’m sad actually that I didn’t see him in much projects apart from personal taste and heirs. Maybe I’ll finally watch city hunters.

    I love the music! It’s one of the things that get’s me excited every time it plays. I’m a child of the 80s/90s, so I guess that may have something to do with it.

    I’m not completely sold on the male lead, but I don’t think I have to be. I love the female lead and her interactions with the male lead. Totally believable.

    I can honestly say that I am a crybaby I cry for every little thing but for some reason i didn’t cry when I watched GOTF. Maybe it was because I read some comments before or because you already know how it ends from the very beginning. It was a sad movie I was sad after I finished it, but it didn’t make me cry the first time I watched it. Although in a strange turn, the other day I was watching clips, just clips and I did shed a few tears.

      Hey! Um, not creepy at all hehe. I’m not usually a fan of this type of relationship either, I mean haven’t watched anything like this before, but maybe because it was Toma Ikuta, [and this particular role too], I kind of realized why the girl fell for him? They both sort of connected, but it looks better when the story comes to full circle on its own hehe. I’m reading the manga currently so that explains more about the girl’s pov. 🙂 Oh, btw in the manga the girl is 18 yrs old and the sensei is 26. If that helps. :/

        Watched the movie last night and I liked how it explored/handled the taboo topic in a quiet?/subtle way. Girl is not clingey & loud and no creepy stares from Teacher Ito. Their relationship is still wrong though lol, but her being a minor is my main issue rather than their unethical teacher-student relationship. It would have been less creepy (but still creepy 😆) if she’s at least 18 years old.

        1
        1

          Hahaha, I know. But isn’t she 18 yrs old in the movie? Notice that the real story starts after one year, so she mentions she’s 17 in the voiceover, so I gather she’s 18 when the story starts.
          Btw can you answer this for me, what actually is creepy about a teacher-student relationship? I also think it’s kind of inappropriate when the girl is a minor, but if she isn’t, then why is it considered a taboo? Haha although I never fall for any of my teachers in school, it happened in the uni, but then I was sane and knew that it was more of an admiration than a crush. 😀

          1
          2

            Oh, I didn’t notice that, I thought she’s 17. Personally, I wouldn’t call a teacher-student relationship creepy because I grew up knowing it’s okay & our religion allows it (even when one party is of minor age as long as there’s consent from the parents) but I live in a country where such relationships are strictly probihited. I think it’s okay as long as people involved are adults and feelings are reciprocated, but if it’s one sided then that’s another story. 😀

            1
            0

            Ah makes sense! In my religion also there isn’t any such taboo imposed on these type of relationships, but I can see where it can go wrong. Like you said, if it’s one-sided lol, or if the girl is too young or naive to restrain her emotion when there are tough times in the relationship.

Lol since I don\’t have much kdramas in watchlist these days, I have been trying to get myself into taiwanese dramas. I tried to watch first two episodes of \’fated to love you\’, the male lead was kind of cool and funny, but the heroine is a bit stupid and looks clueless all the time 😅. Then the 2nd male lead looks kind of cool too, I tried to watch him in this another show called bromance, but the female lead there looks a bit androgynous imo, 😅 . So any recommendation anyone? I like co-habitation dramas, noona romances, and couples who bicker a lot, 😁 🙈 .

    many beanies are watching Lion Pride now, Meet Me @ 1006 is currently airing, Devil Beside You is classic, Hot Shot is about basketball, with almost not much romance, but hilarious, In A Good Way does not really follow your criteria, but it’s a coming-of-age drama, Love, Timeless best friend turned lovers, with a little bit of co-habitation. KO Series again, none of them meets your criteria, but the stories surround people with special abilities and its funny too, but just watch until KO3anguo, i find the subsequent dramas in the series not as good as the first three. however, for KO series, the second and third seasons have pretty long episodes counts, it may get draggy, but its still good imo. and i think you should watch the first one to get the context of the drama. however you watch for the second and third season doesnt really matter

          right!!!! they had a novel for this drama with slightly different plot, and it ended waaaay better than the drama itself.

          book talks about how that phone call chenche received in 1989 on his smartphone was actually from zhenzhen, and the friends actually still keep in contact with one another, just that in order to not change the future, they chose not to let chenche know. long story short, zhenzhen actually ends up dying, and the novel ended sadly, but we had an ending….

Will have to keep it on my list then I guess. 😀 I'm also interested in 'Back to 1989', I hope this is not a cryfest? :S Both the leads are looking fine so I hope I would be able to connect since that was something I failed to do in my previous ventures. 😅
      I watched 'in a good way' like two years back, the overall tone was really good and I liked the main leads, but then I read spoilers about the ending and got to know they didn't end up together. :/ But really loved the heroine's home/cafe.

        Yeah I really liked the shows you mentioned. And tbh, it is really rare to find a good tw show that is able to be that good for all of it’s run. They tend to drag and their ending seemed to be very very disappointing. But even so, I still enjoyed the dramas I recommended. Plus I ended shipping the main couple in 1989 and IAGW…

      in defense for bromance, the female lead is meant to be androgynous for reasons~

      LOL! I must admit I could barely go through the first episode when some beanie recommended it to me, but seeing your posts made me go back to it (to no avail, though, I dropped it on ep 3)

        Okay, I’m going to try and be friends with you.

        LOL!

        Not every drama is for everyone, I have (tenuous, LOL!) friends who don’t like Coffee Prince or Secret Garden. And they must die. HAHAHAHA! 😉

          Hahahahaha! Honestly, I think there’s something with Taiwanese dramas that doesn’t click with me…Chinese dramas as well, I always start them, but can’t seem to finish them (with few exceptions, and mainly because of Jiro Wang, heh)
          Agree with you, there are many, many dramas people love that I just don’t get…but that’s the beauty of dramaland, I guess, always something for everyone!

        Same! Haha! Moderflapper made me watch Bromance, rolled my eyes at the shooting scene (first episode), cringed at the end of episode two (childhood connection & the hairclip lol) watched until half of episode 3 and finally gave up and dropped it. It’s just too cliche for my liking. Leads chemistry are off the charts though.

          That’s exactly where I stopped! I don’t think I made it to half the 3rd episode, though lol
          And definitely, those 2 truly are amazing and I totally buy the attraction…it’s a shame the drama is just badly written!

      Hahaha, LOL I hope we can! 😀
      Ok, I have no problem with androgynous look really haha, but the thing is I didn’t get the attraction part between the leads. ‘You are beautiful’ was my first Korean drama, so the incognito trope is something I really love, but while JGS and PSH looked awesome in my eyes, the leads in Bromance didn’t. :/ Also, don’t kill me 😀 but I didn’t like coffee prince either, simply because gong yoo and YEH just didn’t click for me. So to me, more than the story the chemistry between the leads is important which I didn’t find in either bromance or coffee prince. But on the drama where I saw Baron Chen first, ‘fated to love you’, I loved him there since the chemistry was kind of good between him and Joe Chen. 😂🙈 So it has more to do with my dysfunctional brain, rather than with the dramas at all. 😁

        LOL! Everyone has different tastes, and that’s the way it should be. While it’s always disappointing when someone doesn’t like what I like, it’s all good. I love what I see as the chemistry between Baron Chen and Megan Lai, but if it’s not what you see, then it’s fine. You just need to have your eyes checked – Just kidding, lol! It’s all fine.

        I loved Coffee Prince for reasons I can’t put into words, it’s just a drama that works for me.

    couldn’t tolerate bromance! its like mindless teen drama where you just want to see physical contacts because you have just entered that phase where hormones act up….. that’s just my perception of that drama.. nothing against those who like it..

    Devil beside you is another recommendation, i have never understood..

    ***********

    watch ariel lin’s and bolin’s drama.. its really really nice..

    if you want romance (again mindless but there is something about itazura na kiss).. watch it started with a kiss..

    infact their version of boys over flowers is also good.. meteor garden..
    or Mars..

    amongst the new ones.. haven’t been keeping up.. but mostly slew of bad ones

      My daughters HATED Meteor Garden, to the point where they refused to let me watch it.

        All versions r better than boys over flowers for me… meteor garden also has two parts..the second part..dont even think of starting..

        I watched it for vic zhou ..you can check his other drama..something like black…he plays a detective i think

      In defense of “Bromance”, I disagree with the what you mentioned about physical contact – the physical contact is not “teen sexual”, to me it’s tenderness and caring, intermixed with some sexual tension yes. The only OVERT sexuality is in a couple of makeout scenes taht are mild compared to a lot of what I see in movies.

      Bromance, to me, is one of the most adult dramas I’ve seen, thematically. The main couple stands by each other, supports each other, and loves each other despite what may be a social taboo. The reason why the secret has to be maintained may be stupid, but it’s handled with dignity and not in a juvenile manner.

      Just my opinion.

      Seconding the In Time With You recommendation! It’s mature, nuanced, and has very compelling characters (though the second leads aren’t very likeable).

For a drama that claims to be not a romantic drama, funny how the title screams to me as coming from a total romantic, \’when you say my ahjussi\’, it\’s like she\’s stating her right, her hold, and full authority over him. It\’s as if like that person belongs to her and no one else. Lol years of reading novels have ruined me for good. 😅

    Right, I feel like the English title should have been My Man instead of My Mister.

    In Korean it means middle age or married man which fits his character in the drama.
    From her point of view I think it makes sense to call him “My Ahjeosshi.” He’s probably the only one she’d eventually come to trust.

    Maybe “My older friend” would have been more specific for an English title lol.

    I guess they didn’t go with just “Ahjeosshi” because it’s the name of a movie.

      I thought Ahjussi also is one way of addressing men of any age, either older or younger who is a stranger? Like how we say Mister or miss in English?

I thought this would be a sweet little movie about a girl settling down in her new home after marriage, but wow, didn’t expect there would be so many tears and heartbreak along with art, paintings and the mundane everyday picture of joy and laughter. I don’t think any movie has ever portrayed the horror of war in such a sensitive way, it was poetic, had so many metaphors within the paintings and at the same time melancholic. I felt Suzu’s pain, but the pain of losing your loved ones and family in war is still unfathomable. But the ending still gives hope and I loved the fact that to Suzaku, Suzu was still the same that she was to him when he first met her. Highly recommend this odd little piece of art. #In this corner of the world

    I watched this film a couple of weeks ago. I like how it showed us the little details of daily life in addition to the horrors (both explicit and implicit) of war.

    I watched this on a plane and loved it so much I watched it again when it came to the theatres (even though I knew I had to see the horror happen all over again). Like Peridot mentioned, it had a great slice-of-life take on the trauma and hardships of wartime Japan.

Maybe since I\’m 30 years old, I don\’t know, I never felt like age gap is an issue in romancing anyone? Lol I can see that people don\’t want any romance in \’my ahjussi\’ but oddly I find the chemistry between IU and LSK so strong. Too bad that there won\’t be any romance..sobs.

    I’m still not sure if there will be any romance or not! Lol. I’m hoping not because I want to see more strong platonic friendships in dramaland between men and women, but I won’t be super bothered if there is romance.

    I’ll let the show take me where it will take me.

      Haha maybe I’m of those types who doesn’t like the usual OTPS and sees scopes where there is none. 😀 But I’m with you on this. So far I’m just pissed at Ji An since she totally backstabbed on the nice ahjussi. :/ Let’s see where it goes lol.

        I thought they did a good job at showing how Ji-an could stoop so low considering how crappy her life is, and we don’t even know the whole story. I of course don’t condone her actions, and I don’t think the show wants us to, but it just goes to show how damaged and jaded she is. I expect great character development.

          Ah you’re right. I’m sure she’s very salty and have a pessimistic view of life right now. Like I loved that line from the teaser, ‘people who live a comfortable life have the privilege of being good people’ or something like that.

      Same. I’ll let the drama take me wherever it want.

      I’m feeling the strong chemistry between our nice ajusshi and downttodden girl too. Whether or not they’ll end up as a couple, I’m all in as long as they get to be happy. They deserve that much.

    I with you on this. I’m only 20 and I never found it weird either. Two consenting adults… their cup of tea. The chemistry is strong but I’m yet to determine if it’s a romantic way or not. I don’t care at this point, I just want more of them. I really enjoyed the first episode.

      Right? After a certain age, younger or older doesn’t matter IMO since it’s not like anyone of them goes to school lol. It’s more about if their pov match and they can talk for hours and still feel interested. But yeah I can still see that the drama can go both ways. And me too, loved the first episode! Totally agree on more of them on screen. The two brothers have still not grown on me. :/

    I was hesitant because I wanted to see a strong friendship and partnership like in Signal but then on the other hand I found chemistry between the leads really compelling and I’m a bit disappointed that there’s no romance between them after all.

    They released some kind of statement that there’s no romantic feelings between those two.

      Yeah same here, I was really looking forward to this one lol. Also, the over-clarification about how this is not a ‘romance drama’ at all is more annoying IMO lol. If the writer wants it to be a romance drama make it one, why change the storyline just cause some aren’t enthusiastic about it? Those who are really fans of the writer/director will watch it anyway lol.

    Well, I think if that Ahjusshi is someone like Gongyoo, maybe some fans won’t be bothered to see any romance. 😏😂 I don’t mind huge age gap either, I’ll be happily romancing Lee Sun-kyun if I get the chance though.. LOL

      Haha yeah, :/. Me neither! I find LSK totally impressive and that voice! Also, some people are quite mature and I know some girls in real life who went for someone older. So to each their own haha.
