Live Ep 10: When it rings true in real life

Live Ep 8: These two are a refreshing married couple by kdrama standards. Kinda dysfunctional, but refreshing. And they’re cute. Lol

And that love/hate friendship-rivalry with Gyeong-mo is awesome. I’m loving Jang Hyung-sung’s character here 😂

Ok, LIVE is amazing!

It has this ability to make me tear up at the most unexpected times: I’m watching in neutral emotions-mode and then the character says or does something and then split-second BAM, tears just fill my eyes and I’m like WTH. Reminds me of when I was watching Prison Playbook. lol

It’s funny and heartwarming and heartbreaking, and it’s as thrilling to watch them arrest a drunk driver as watching a detective hunt for a killer. More often patrol police officers are relegated as extras in the dramas I’ve watched for the more ‘glamorous’ detectives that solve the crimes which are ripe for meatier plot, but here they take center stage.

It’s a drama but man it feels soooo real! It’s making even ME question how I see police officers in real life. It seems such a thankless job too! You know how something that seems simple and mundane belies its importance because it’s easy to take for granted? This drama is making me think of and feel all these!

Since they’re the first responders, the ones directly in contact with civilians, it may seem like they do the simplest tasks, but their life is on the line every time. And their job title alone kind of makes people set up a higher bar of expectations for them to meet, sometimes forgetting that they’re human too. It breaks my heart every time they get yelled at or are unfairly treated 💔

Any drama that transcends the screen to portray something that is LIFE is a gem in my book. 👍❤️️

Oi, if looks could kill! Lol! On Ep 5 and I’m loving Live so far

In his earlier dramas, I found it hard to kind of separate Lee Kwang Soo from his Running Man character versus his drama characters ‘cos I kept seeing him as he is in RM. It got better with his most recent dramas, esp in Dear My Friends but this one feels like he’s a full-fledged actor on his own now.

Not just him, the whole drama is a talent-studded cast. I’m loving Bae Seong-woo too 👍 👍 👍

    I really sympathized with his Entourage character. He played a budding actor who accidentally got cast on a variety show and was filmed in a humiliating situation. He couldn’t get offers for serious roles, because everyone wanted him to play his variety character.

    I wonder if Lee Kwangsoo inspired that bit of the character with his own experience. He was a relatively unknown actor who was cast on RM and everyone wanted to see that same character in their dramas instead of serious roles.

      He’s just so amazingly funny in RM that he’s very memorable that way. It doesn’t help that his body and thus his gestures are made for physical comedy so it kinda got in the way of me seeing him as a drama character before.

      He suits more serious roles like these, ones that are humorless types. I’m happy that writer Noh seems to have taken a liking to him and keeps giving him these opportunities ❤️️

After My Ahjussi, I needed something light and feel-good to get out of the emotional state it left me in. I was thinking of starting either Mother or Live but I thought it might be too much if I watched them right after the other 😁

I decided to pick-up where I left off with A Love so Beautiful. That Epilogue in Ep 1 definitely got me! Worth watching for the lead couple alone: heroine was adorable (I loved it when she cried) and the male lead was the epitome of the geniussssss tsundere character that is my catnip (why is this guy so handsome? Why?!!)

It made me laugh that their faces couldn’t both fit in the same close-up frame. Cookie-cutter story but the romance was sweet enough to make me smile and they had the chemistry to make my heart flutter. ❤️️

The rest: editing, story flow, and character development were meh. I had to keep reminding myself to stop thinking so I don’t get frustrated 😜

I don’t know what I’m doing to myself by watching 1987 right after My Ahjussi. smh

The movie though, was exceptional. Inspiring, and all the more heartbreaking that it’s based on true events and people. I was surprised at the number of actors involved and I loved Yeo Jin Goo and Kang Dong Won’s cameos.

That’s it, it’s over. How do I move on? My heart was broken and put back together bigger and shinier than before. What a lovely and inspiring story this was! 💗💖

To this date, I consider Signal as the best drama of all time – story, execution and acting: on a whole different level. My Ahjussi is tied with it now, and it makes sense coming from the same genius director. PD Kim Won Seok, I am a forever fan. Lee Sun Kyun, I am a forever fan ❤

I saw different subs for this EPIC scene which, on hearing the dialogue again, seems to be the most correct translation than the previous one (I think).

It’s more heartbreaking too.

My Lee Sun Kyun Appreciation Post: ‘Cos LSK in that suit + smiling + the singing was just 😍

On a serious note, I really hope he wins an award for this ‘cos he’s just magnificent as Dong-hoon. He’s acting the hell out of this role.

Ack, that cliffhanger! 😱 I can’t believe this is ending next week! 😭 This is a drama I wouldn’t have minded having an extension

Dong-hoon is such a righteous and kind character that he may seem so idealistic on paper, but in this drama he seems so real and so human with flaws and all ❤️️
