    I was kinda hoping that she wouldnt be able to save her dad. I mean, the loss of a parent trope is overdone, but I also wanted the FL lead to learn that she cannot mess with time/fate.

      is it cold for me to agree? Cuz I sorta do. Also, I wish the lead wasn’t so young, or Nam Joo Hyuk. (but I love the older brother. He kills me)

        I’m cautiously optimistic. I think this would be a good role for him to show his acting chops. It seems to be a meatier roll so I’m hoping he does well.

Day ??
Second post of this. Here it goes.

Because music has a special place in my heart, I thought I might list some of my favorite OST’s from different dramas that I’ve accumulated over the past 2 years.

Some of these come from dramas I have watched, which might be part of the reason why they’ve made it into my list (watching the drama the OST comes from just elevates the song’s emotion), and some are here just for their own merit. I will list the reason why I love the song so much and the memories they evoke from me, or will try to.

(These songs are in NO particular order. And I’m choosing one song per drama.)

1. I Will Go To Like The First Snow (Ailee) – Goblin
Arguably the first kdrama ballad I ever fell in love with. I remember having it on replay while studying for my diabetes exam. Then for my cardiology exam, and then gastroenterology.
Sometimes I’d take my hair brush and lip-sync the words. (cuz my gosh who can pull off Ailee’s vocals)

2. Adult (Sondia) – My Ahjussi
I can’t study to this song. It makes me cry. But it inspires me to write, and look deep into myself for emotions. It reminds me of Jian’s story. It’s odd. Sometimes the song has a sad tone to it, and sometimes it’s uplifting. I absolutely love it and will never get over it.

3. Shelter (Heejin Ft. OFA) – Because This is Our first life
I didn’t fall in love with it at first (oddly enough it was It’s Life from BTIOLF that I loved at first hear). But this one grew on me until I can’t get over it. I LOVE duets. LOVE. And this song is homely, I wish it were the theme song to my non-existent romance.

4. Attraction (Kim Go Eun) – Cheese in the trap
I’m reminded of that episode where Hong Sol is at her wit’s end and runs to her BF. And the song plays. This song reminds me of hard times and how you need someone to run to when

5. I love you Boy (Suzy) – (While You Were Sleeping)
I didnt watch the drama. But I love this song. I thought I had killed it when it first came out, but every few weeks I hear it again and fall in love all over again.

6. Know Me (Stella Jang) – I’m not a robot
I like cute little jingles too. I didn’t know i’d still love after all this time.

7. Thumping (Kim Min Seung) – She Was Pretty
Anything Kim Min Seung is automatically a winner. But this one’s the FIRST ever OST i fell in love with. It’s so upbeat. SO GOOD.

8. It’s Okay That’s Love (Davichi) – Drama by the same name
didn’t watch the drama. But it’s so moving. and I feel like I need to run in the wind and cry.

9. How About You (CHEEZE) – Suspicious Partners
Every a song about falling in love should be.

10. Dreaming (Han Hee Jung)- Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
I still listen to this song and get all giddy inside.

11. Such (feat. Jo HyunAh) – Cheese in the Trap.
See n4

Honorable Mentions:
1. Ambiguous (BTOB) – Fight My Way
Not sure if it should on my list because I don’t emotional listening to it. But I can’t skip it when it comes on. So upbeat and makes me wanna sing along with BTOB.

2. Swallowing My Heart (Sandeul) – Moonlight Drawn By Clouds
Probably just for the beginning part. It reminds me of Bo Gummy smiling before kissing Kim Yoo Jung’s character.

3. Same (Song Ji Eun) – My Secret Romance
This drama was all sorts of cringe… But the song is sooooo freaking good wth. Like good in a cheesy kpop candy way.

4. Where Are U (Jung Joon Young) – W Two Worlds
I never finished this drama but the song is pretty epic. As epic as the kiss in the drama and the music that went along with it…. (y’all know what I mean dont lie)

I KNOW I have more but this post is getting long. (im sorry to all the songs I love but I forgot to mention)

Touch Your Heart…. What plot?

    Some stuff i remember from ep 1:
    1. she was stupid enough to get caught in a drug scandal because she blankly swallowed maybe 30pills(?).
    2. LDW needs a new hairstyle
    3. JKY stole the show
    4. The coats were pretty
    And lastly my heart is not touched yet.

      You summed it up on the nooooseeeee. JKY WAS the best part of ep1. I hope he does another comedy after his next drama…. he was too funny in that web drama.

      Good point. But this one seems a bit outdated for me till now (storywise, jokewise, etc.) like they keep saying the male lead is rude but I literally see nothingwrong with his behaviour except that he is a tad distant. Oh well, dramas gotta drama.

I just finished binging the \”Have a nice dessert\” web drama (can be found on YT) Such a cute web drama! I wish it were longer and more developped. Definitely recommend if you want something short and sweet. Pun intended.

And that\’s a wrap on SKY Castle! I cried so much in episode 20. Arguably the two last episodes were the best for me in the series… but maybe thats because we finally get that much needed conclusion, redemption and development of all the characters we love but also hate.
Although I won\’t classify SKY Castle as one of my favorite dramas, I understand why it\’s the most viewed drama in Korea. The plot was a bit too real for me at times, and near the 3/4 of the drama, I skipped an episode or two and felt like I didn\’t miss out on ANY plot. Despite it all, The plot was riveting, real and the acting was amazing. What a great ensemble cast. What a great message. Not too mention one of the most iconic OSTs \”We All Lie\”.

and no, i wouldn\’t say the message is love comes first (because all the parents were blinded by their love and greed which drove them to crazy lengths). It\’s more like : do what makes you happy without hurting one another.

The first time I really saw her, I cringed. She wasn’t too pretty, she was awkward and a bit of an obnoxious know-it-all. Easy going and the procrastinator I was, I accepted her without thinking too much about it.

But as I grew more self aware of my surroundings, I bullied her relentlessly, to the point of her crying every night. And it made me feel good. Except it didn’t.

And when she received love from my close friends and family, it pissed me off. Why? She’s a try hard with no personality and she’s ugly. I didn’t get it.

She was always there, but I never really got to know her. I do know she tries hard to make me happy. She gets me gifts, she talks me up to everybody. Her intention was genuine, but deep in my heart it annoyed me. Who is she to help me like that? Who do you think you are? You’re nothing.

Although I have known her 23 years, I have yet to have told her “I love you” or “You’re pretty”. Yet she still sticks to m3. And I’m working on it. I’m learning to get to know her, her quirks, and all the amazing stuff I’m told about her.

Loving and being aware of yourself is indeed a challenge, and every day Im working on believing that I’m worth it.

Working on love,
February

I can\’t seem to pick up again My Strange Hero. I feel too guilty towards YSH and KDY. Y\’all are good i promise… it\’s just i need a better plot. But I love you sincerely as actors. Don\’t hate me.

      *sniff* I felt that same guilt towards you for Sky Castle. I liked it. but it made me uncomfortable. and it didnt make me excited for the next ep. (except episode 19 which was… amazing).

        I like SKY Castle but it’s not like I have a deep emotional connection with it or any of the actors like LS does with Boksoo.

      That’s the thing. I want to love it cuz of the actors, but also cuz I know you love it and I love your opinion. Oh gosh, someone treat my brain.

        Hey, look, I love Boksoo and I’m happy recommending it. But I’m the one who talked people into watching the utter banality that Boyfriend turned out to be so feel free to ignore me mostly. I’ve gone down enough dead-end rabbit holes trying to work out what people see in certain shows – especially people who usually like what I like.

        I get that and I do love that concept, but I just needed him to process everything a bit longer. He spent 9 years hating these people and it took him very little to move on (in her case at least).

        1
        1

          Me too! Though I like the female lead as a person, if I were Bok Soo I wouldn’t have forgiven her. It still seems harsh, no matter how old she was and no matter if she felt guilty. Im too much team boksoo i guess.

          1
          1

            I like her, flaws and all. She feels human, but while regret and apologizes are great and do mean something, that is a lot of information for Bok-soo to take in. I wanted him to take some time to reconcile what he knew all this time with the new information he just learned from her and then accept the apology. I didn’t need it to be dragged out for 5 more episodes, but more than 5 minutes would have been nice..lol

      Not sure. I fall asleep and fast forward through most of them. I may have skipped one. Idk. But I do agree about Bok Soo being a good guy. It’s just the «school is corrupt» is a been there, done that sorta plot.

        School corruption does seem to be a common drama theme. Hopefully YSH’s and KDY’s next projects will suit your taste better.

        It’s true the plot is pretty well Sassy Go Go meets Angry Mum. But, then, I liked both of those things.

            I had the same problem with Sassy Go Go watching it right after Angry Mum. It was like Angry Mum-lite and was missing the depth the other show had. And of course that’s the point – it’s a completely different show. If I’d known I would have waited a few months.

            @crysta yes, I did finish it, I just didn’t post about it. I liked the beginning more than the end. The beginning was dark but still a lot of fun. Towards the end it was just dark without as many comic moments. I was also slightly disappointed with the ending because I didn’t like how one of the bad guys was punished or the leads’ role in it. However, I did enjoy it quite a bit. KYJ is adorable and Jisoo’s character was fantastic. I also loved the mother-daughter relationship.

            @raonah @crysta
            I also had the same problem with the final few episodes but decided not to let it impact my overall love of it. As usual, I got the feeling the writer didn’t really know what to do with all of these people to wrap it up so it got bogged down in legal manoeuvring and court cases. And I remember the scene you’re talking about and didn’t like it either. Still, overall, I have really good memories of this and mostly loved it.

    Sky Castle ep #19 was heart-wrenching and gut-wrenching to watch. That 1:20 mins passed quickly.
    This could have been the final episode – I wonder what they will do next.
    wow… I am emotionally drained just from watching it.

Rocky: “sorry Peha, I just let random people that could reveal all of your secrets into the palace right when you were in front of reporters. Oh my! Silly me! I must resign!” RH: “No!

    You’re definitely not the only one! I love the two of them together, I’m so in love with the casting, I swear. YJG and LSY are so fantastic together and I can already tell that Ep 7 is gonna kill me. T_T

    Yeo Jin Goo’s portrayal of two distinct people is absolutely believable. So young but already a veteran actor—just fantastic! Lee Se Young was my favorite monster from Hwayugi and I agree she’s terrific with YJG.

      Yi Heon has this terrifying vibe around him while Haseon is just a puppy that I want to protect… and they are both played by Yeo Jin Goo. I’m still shaken by Ep 7’s teaser.

    I caught up to ep. 18 last night and … I confess that I fast fwdd through ep. 17 and 18. Glad there’s only 2 more episodes left, because after ep.15, things have been getting a little ridiculous and plot-hole-y…

    I otherwise really enjoyed binge-watching this show!

As expected from a serial dropper, I wasn’t able to finish MOA once I knew little bro came back. LITERALLY NOTHING HAPPENED IN THIS SHOW. granted, i dropped the show, but 14 eps in, and I still feel like they’re building the foundation for action that never happened. Lemme guess: the author leaves the show open-ended like I’ve been told happened with Hwayugi? hahahahah….

    Yeah it was a wait, waiting for the real action that didn’t come. SJ was so underused. Most charaters in this drama, except JW, were underused, some should have been used less like Yura and some others like HJ’s jerk friend shouldn’t have been used in the first place.

    Haha samee! I accidentally skipped ep 14 and since then didn’t find the urge to continue. I thought this was a show i came back to each week despite it being sub par so I could not skip it. But no, no need to slightly hate watch a show that doesn’t have enough action/story to keep you going.
