Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

My Love Eun Dong-ah

1. My Rating: BEAUTIFULLLLL Heart Warming tale of lovers reuniting after gap of decades. I never cried this much during any recent drama watch or marathon as much i cried here.

2. Fast Forward: NIL

3. Binged in: Day 1 – 11 episodes, Day 2 – 5 episodes.

4. Positive: Old School Love Story, No Nobel Idiocy, childhood connection, acting by all the actors especially male lead (his acting, his tears, his affection)

5. Negative: Second male leads desparate act which could have prevented 2 episodes of useless angst.

6. Recommended for: Anyone looking for an old school tug of war kind of love story to cry to laugh to celebrate with Park Hyun Soo, to have all your heartstrings pulled.

Big Issue was reverse version of Lookout, alpha female and beta male. where female keeps her ground, her antics till the very end. JSH will be one of most intelligent and sharp female lead among all my drama leads.

The way she handles all the threats, situation that went south and even 48 hours of prosecution investigation dint deter her… i love her for being that badass Alpha Female that we rarely see in kdramas. She is not in action by fighting with physical power but she is all about mental metal, power of her planning-forseeing

BIG ISSUE is β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️
i can give it 100/10 for the execution of this suspense card till the very last episode. i had no idea who is double crossing whom and how. just superbbbbb drama.
only complaint… i hated lack of romance from the OTP. they made such a powercouple and their romance would have been electrifying… still i am happy i watched and loved it

My Views about \”Big Issue\” Drama
how much I fast forward while binging a drama is my sole criteria to judge how good a drama is, how gripping the direction is and how well the plot written..

and Big Issue broke all the records so far. finished 13 episodes (13 hours worth of videos) in one single day (9am to 2am) with NO Fast Forward….

I couldn\’t even dare to FF any part and moreover i found myself holding my breath at least twice in every single episode. And its so real (unlike Lookout) as to how people change when adversities hit.

Hope more beanies watch it and share their views.

*off to watch last 2 episodes*

    That is my criteria too. If I have an urge to ffd a show regularly it isn’t all that great for me.

      i LOVED IT SSSOOOO much… just jow finished and i am in awe as to how perfect this one drama was…. i couldn’t find lack of logic that i hate in such thriller dramas…
      just one complaint.. i needed more of romance of my OTP thats all..

        I don’t know, maybe you missed it? There was a wave of criticism in the beginning of the show because of the unethical actions of the male lead when he took photos in the first ep.
        So the series wasn’t very popular (among the beanies too).

        The chemistry was indeed great, I squeaked when she suddenly came to his door after her releasing!
        It was r e a l l y well done 👋.

        Agree with your complaints, chingu, it wouldn’t hurt to have more than just one nice (steaaaamyyy) kiss pro 16 eps)))

          i dint observe it much when it air and when you say people criticise male lead’s ethics of clicking picture i guess they dint connect with his desperation to save his dying daughter… and that first episode (for me) set the whole stage for the plot as to humans can go to any level if cornered. So i liked everything abt it.

          and that kiss after her self realisation… i died that moment and it was INDEED DONE PERFECTLY. and just how she was in life/office attacking the opponent without giving chance to recover she did exactly same in that kiss….. but i needed more….

PS Big Issue is one rocking thriller drama. Loving it sooo badly.

2 days and Lookout finished with 0% FFing. Another unforgettable ending for me after Shark. And Ill miss JDH\’s cheeky smile (the one KEJ recalls whole dreaming abt him at the end)…

    I’m glad you enjoyed it. Awesome twist at the end and definitely an unforgettable ending. The lack of common sense got a bit maddening at the end, and some questionable directing didn’t detract from the overall effect.

    Yassss the ending is … Definitely unforgettable lol.
    Still a bit grumpy with its execution but I’m pretty sure my version where he gets properly forgiven before he dies is canon in my mind now.

      i hated the execution of such dramatic ending (and how senseless it was). I still wished he wuld not die but then I knew he has a big guilt of letting YN die to survive (per kdrama logic). So i was prepared to see the worst.

        Ah see I didn’t mind that he died. For once. Just how he died.
        I was expecting him to die; his character was too far gone not to, and fitted a tragic end.
        I just wished they’d a)not had such stupid and contrived and OOC events leading up to his death and b) shown ultimately Su Ji forgiving him, because that’s all he really needed to forgive himself and I know that would’ve been in character and on development for her, and given him a proper send off. They were so so close to having the perfect forgiveness and redemption in death arc, it was there in all the characters! but they blundered it with the plot and direction at the end there. oh well.
        (I’ll tag you in my write up when I send it to gadis when she’s finished it haha)

This was one damn roller-coaster yet fantastic ride… with one of the most charming OTP of my life… which made it an unforgettable experience……

But it was all worth as I enjoyed each and every second being there… thank you so much Do Min Ik for being that Dim Bulb oozing charisma and Jeong Gal Hee for being the power to enlighten Do Min Ik’s world and our’s too.

    Wasn’t it cool that they used a video so you could hear everyone talk and laugh rather than a photo? Yes I’m going to miss this show!

another very first… i finished D-Day with ffing 30% of part and at the end i am happy and giggling (how KYK be this cute in any role?)
This drama had minimal romance (among all the drama i hav watched)… one OTP but i feel so satisfied that i picked it up and finished it too.
Despite all the never ending catastrophe (which reminded me of Arrow where Oliver Green is there just to save the world) i enjoyed it thoroughly. Especially its like a lesson for life to not to give up on your morals n ethics no matter who is against you cause everything will fall in place eventually.

All hardships of doctors were so relatable as in our country we had some really bad incidents adversely impacting doctors… so there couldn’t be a better time to watch this and to know how much struggles doctors had to go through.

and my fav moment OTP moment..

On your Wedding Day
First Loves are like walking,
You gotta fall to learn how to walk properly.

Never knew i would need this movie to learn the lesson which i (deliberately) postponed to learn (or perhaps i dint want to learn it at all).

Loved how Woo Yeon was the happiest as he opens the door and moves towards a brighter path. But my heart feels empty – sad – overwhelm cause I never wanted him (or anyone to fail in love esp first love)… may be cause i had such high expectations of first loves and failing means end of life.

Still Ill be ok in some days and will let this lesson help me becoming a stronger person.

PS: LOVED THIS MOVIE. KYKs smile is Contagious, Infectious.

    My daughter was ranting about this to me last night. This guy she was dating told her she was “too opionated and not naturing enough. This is why black men (he’s not black) don’t date black women anymore.” When she said EXCUSE ME?! He responded with “For example not once have you offered to cook dinner for me”.

    Don’t let other people’s backwards attitudes get to you too much. Tell them to kick rocks.
