One Spring Night, ep. 2:
Can someone tell PD-nim to stop assaulting the audience w the overbearing and repetitive background music🎼😣?? It’s driving me up the wall! 🤯😵

    I stopped watching after the first 2 episodes because of the bg music constantly repeating in the background. I just couldn’t stand it.

I volunteered to transcribe my work colleague\’s audio files. They\’re 4hrs long in total.
I have a newfound respect for the kind people who provide subtitles to all of our KDramas and CDramas. especially if they do it for free.!
This is hard, boring, thankless work. It made me discover how slow of a typist I really am…
14mins33s of audio took me 2hrs!!!!!!! this is insaaaane!!!! This is torture!
Dear SUBBERS: THAAAAANK YOOOOU !!
*in tears*

    Yeah, people totally underestimate how much work it is to transcribe and subtitle. Add in translating, and I bow my head in respect to these heroes.

    You may want to tell your colleague to hire a transcriber as you didn’t realize the amount of time/labor this would involve.

    I feel your pain. I have started to caption some of our company’s videos, as well as our 10-15min long Facebook lives (with no script!) and it took me hours!!! Once I learned how to put that into YouTube, it at least helped cut that down for me. I’m not sure what software you use or your system, but perhaps you can look into uploading it as a video file into Youtube and then choosing the option to manually transcribe it, which the best part of it for me was that it paused every time I typed so I didn’t miss so much and can rewind/forward easier. If you or anyone have any tips for me too, I’ll appreciate it.

    Transcribing is no joke. It’s already time-consuming on its own, but when you add translating to it, it can feel never-ending.

    there is a website called otransribe.com, which makes transcribing much easier. no, it doesn’t auto transcribe, but the website was made by a journalist (and we’d have to transcribe hours each week) so they know the pain points. you can rewind, forward, timestamp, speed up and slow down. the content is auto saved to the browser and it’s free!

I enjoyed last night’s ep 15 of Her Private Life except that, having now gone through the Beanie Fan Wall, I almost feel like I shouldn’t have enjoyed it as much as I did, like delayed bitter aftertaste on a great sugar pie.
1) Ryan Gold forgives too quickly. Way too quickly. It’s cute but unnatural, surreal, overly-God-like and not humanly possible, in my opinion. I felt that way when he forgave his birth mum and it became even more unbelievable when he forgave Deok-mi’s mum for abandoning him. It’s not that I want him to be a broken human being, but come on!
2) It’s only today that I realized what Beanies noticed: Deok-mi’s mum should have logically taken the poor child to the police. And then none of this would have happened. Now that I have “seen” this, I can’t “unsee” it, and it’s actually the worst most nonsensical course of action an otherwise reasonably wise character has ever taken.
3) What exactly is the timeline for the death of Doek-mi’s little brother? And why didn’t her mum also give up Eun-gi? He clearly has a parent of his own that she could very easily locate! Why did it make sense to keep him and not an “orphan”?
4) Shi-an’smile creeps me out. A lot.
*sigh*
*putting on thicker lenses, truly intent on enjoying the last episode tonight, in spite of jarring plot grievances*
Bring it on!

    I haven’t seen other comments, but if we’re going to be completely logical, then the boy with the missing mother should have been reported on day 1 or day 2, without giving him up. But this is dramaland…. So often the rules of life are bent to accommodate the plot. Not sure why Deok-mi needed to discover she had a little brother who died, other than to cover her lack of memories of little Ryan.

    It’s not that I didn’t enjoy this episode, but it added very little to the plot, other than to explain who let go of Ryan’s hand, reconcile, and avoid noble idiocy. What’s left for the last ep, other than the big exhibition?

      OH ALSO – the two other curators have yet to fall in love. There’s also a potential romance brewing between Eun Gi and the art director second lead lady.

      you’re right. that dead little brother was really just a device for a memory jog that was brushed over too quickly… poor little dead brother, used just for this.

    Yes, she definitely should of taken him to the police, but it doesn’t just stop with her.
    Did the orphanage report a missing child? Did his grandfather? Or what ever family was contacted when she was hospitalized? Or his mom when she woke up.
    It is such an odd tacked on story. And then the little brother??? What was that. 😂

    But……I still like it and look forward to today’s ep.

    7
    2

      😂😂😂😂😂 my reaction is the same as yours. Like, the real mum says she searched everywhere, but did she think to check with the police? Any orphanages in the area? Etc, etc, etc? Yes to the rest of the family. I was laughing as I fast forwarded through most of this nonsense. Now I hope we have lots of cute scenes in the final episode, and that’s that.

        I think writer could have used more time on this so we could understand it better. But I guess they wanted to stay lighthearted so they fast forward this issues and focus on the romance.

        They should of showed his mom looking ……but with face blindness from the accident. So she just keeps over looking him.

            No, no face blindness.

            It just pops up in k dramas lately. 2 or 3 within a year I think.
            Just joking that it would of been a funny reason for how she lost her son.

    Ryan Gold is unbelievable. That’s why I’ve never felt him being human inside the beautiful packaging. He’s like a fairytale prince to me. And not even the recent fleshy Disney ones, but the old old Cinderella and Snow White princes that have very little character.

      oh he was very much human to me!
      until he forgave his birth mum. call me bitter.

        I liked him in the beginning with the arrogance of an artist, a somewhat culture shocked look on Korea and fan culture, and an open mind on LGBT. But soon the writer simply tried too hard to make him perfect and it backfired a little (maybe a lot) for me.

          I’m still at the beginning of this show but I had felt exactly what you have written from the beanies’ posts.

      I have the exact opposite impression. I have this faint memory of him acting like an arrogant jerk in the first few episodes, but then somehow very quickly evolving into an intelligent, warm, thoughtful, funny, creative, and sensitive guy. So much more than looks and style. I really appreciated that they took a character who seemed perfect on the outside, and showed that he was lonely and wounded on the inside.

      5
      1

        They should have just ditched the wounded story if they want to show him all so positive. Imo the only point of making him wounded was to make Deok Mi seem like his fated savior, but at the end he just healed himself in no time, miraculously, when mom showed up. So the quick brush over this reunion made it seemed his wounds weren’t that deep.

    Sometimes when I love a show I avoid the beanie wall. I tend to nitpick at illogical stuff myself, but I discovered that if I analyse a kdrama too closely I will enjoy it less. Ignorance is bliss (?)

      I know what you mean, but somehow I always end up on the Beanie wall. With kdramas to me, it’s just a given that you suspend a LOT of disbelief. They remove me from RL which is what I want…. but sometimes I can’t suspend enough disbelief.
      In this case the backstory of the moms and orphanages and dead little brother was just too much…
      Part of me is wondering if I even want to watch the last episode tonight. Two weeks ago (at ep 12) I would have been fine.
      sigh….
      give me a goofy angel or a faceblind boss for now.

        Hehe, and also reading posts about shows I’ve dropped… like this one. 🙈
        For the record, I didn’t find faults with HPL (up to ep. 8); it just got too romantic and there wasn’t enough fun fangirling for my taste.

        Sometimes I’ll read posts and recaps about a show I had no intention of watching, and then I become intrigued and start it. But by then I know a lot of what is going to happen, which can ruin the show at times.
        but not always…
        Tonight I’ll start with a mouthy angel and grumpy dancer to start my evening off right.

          The only show I was tempted to live-watch halfway through its run was Children of Nobody, and for that Lee Yi Kyung screencaps on the fan walls were completely to be blamed.

    1) I see it a bit differently. First – we are talking about the parents of the woman he full-heartedly loves, and these are people who have been nothing but amazingly kind to him as an adult. Second, the discussion with EG gave him the full context of that decision and he knows that grief does weird things to people. Third, he lived most of his life without the memory of being abandoned. Sure after seeing the painting it temporarily hurt him and gave him nightmares but he is not defined by that event. Now that things are getting good with him finding DM and his family it is a lot easier to be in a forgiving mood, especially since doing anything different would primarily hurt DM… But I would have liked to see him struggle with the decision a tiny bit more too
    2) I agree that a lot of things were weird about the old narrative. My guess is that DM’s mum thought that YJ had been abandoned by his mum – the same way EG was. In not reporting it to the police immediately she was holding on to the hope that YJ’s mum would regret her decision and come back for him the same way EG’s mum did. A paper trail would have made it harder to get him back…
    3) EG had his mum at the time, DM and EG grew up together but his own mum was constantly in the picture as far as I understand from their conversations. She was single and working full time, so not much around but still there; so EG’s mum could take responsibility for him. With one kid in the hospital and the other dead, having another boy to take care of all of a sudden got too much. It was too late to go the legal route and anyways the situation was too fraught for mum to think rationally
    4) not exactly creepy but suspicious – I always think he has a lot of schemes hiding behind that smile… I often wonder what goes through his head.

    Overall: would I have preferred some things to be done differently – yes. Do I still like the show – unapologetically yes.

      I like your spin on things. I don’t agree with all of it, but I really like your spin on these events. thanks for sharing and yes, let us thrive on with our love for the show, flaws and all !

        I admit, with dramas like these, I always make the attempt to ‘spin’ things well, rather then nitpick, provided the characters are consistently worth it for me.

          exactly how I feel about good flawed shows: if the characters are properly fleshed out, logical and consistent in their actions, I’m sold!

      For the record, EG wasn’t abandoned. His mom was known to return. So your #2 and #3 are conflicting.

      In any case, taking care of a known child is very different than taking care of an unknown child. The part of taking in and abandoning RG are 2 messy steps separately. Simply out of character.

      1

        there were several conversations (EG-DM, EG-his mum) relatively early on in the series about how EG’s mum tried to abandon him at the maternity but in the end could not go with it partially because DM’s mum intervening. i don’t see any conflict

        1
        1

          EG’s mom left him to be babysitted. That’s the premise of DM’s mom taking him in. So by that point he was not an abandoned child.

          0
          3

            I don’t see the conflict: he’s not her child and, according to DM’s dad, mum was so distraught by the death of her youngest son, that she could barely keep it together enough to care for DM. Why, if you are understandably so overwhelmed by the unfortunate events of life, would you have time to take care of another woman’s child when said other woman is clearly available??
            that’s the question.

            @kethysk I was speaking of @charlieblue17 ‘s #2 conflicting with her #3, that EG is the same situation as RG in one response then say EG has a mom available in the next response. EG’s mom could have easily been contacted to take him back. Besides this child she has watched since birth like a son. RG was with her a month.

            0

      I agree with you. Ryan is 33 y/o and we have seen him as someone who is matured and rational. He has already united with his mom, why would he wanna hate the person who abandoned him when he’s 7 when that person was caring for him for a month? Imagine if he was to be left alone at playground? His narrative will be totally different. Plus, that person is his lover’s mom and he’s received so much love from DM. It’s like what he said, 7y/o YJ might be hurting, but 33 y/o YJ doesn’t feel anything about it. He’s moved on from his bad memories.

      Why Deok Mi’s mom didn’t go to police? On the first day, she was sympathetic toward a poor hungry kid being left alone in playground and he claimed that his mom will be back. We can see that DM’s mom is a caring person by the way she’s taking care of EG. She believed that YJ’s mom would pick him up back. A month had passed and when the accident happened, she was in grieve and not in her right mind. Even if she did bring him to the police, the police would ask question on why he’s not been reported missing a month ago? Plus, in her mind, she already believed that YJ’s mom abandoned him which is why the best solution she could think of is putting him at the orphanage.

      Why didn’t DM’s mom abandon EG as well? I remember in the first few episodes, there’s a scene of which EG’s mom did provide financial support to take care of EG. Plus, EG has been with the family since he was a baby. As for YJ, he’s just a child that she knew for a month, so of course the DM’s mom love towards EG is different compared to YJ.

        Like I said to Charlie, Let’s agree to disagree, but agree to enjoy the show until its very end. lol
        trust me: if YOU find a child abandoned somewhere and DON’T take him to the police, that might spell jail time for you. At least here where I live… just saying.

          Yup! I get your point on the police report, but I take it as it’s in the 80s, perhaps people back then were not educated or aware of the consequences and took matters into their own hands.

    I could buy him forgiving DM’s mom given the fact that he is in a much more loved position in his life right now, partially thanks to her daughter, and because he recognized the emotional intent behind her actions and the turmoil the family went through. But this all has to do with the show framing her original action of taking him in as admirable, which it could have definitely been if she’d gone to the police originally before doing so. Still, the way the leads dealt with the situation this episode felt really natural to me, even if how the conflict played out in the past felt unnatural.

    I did like them immediately making amends for past actions, instead of hiding away in shame. That aspect was well-done, and part of why the forgiveness felt earned here, even if the foundation for all this childhood drama is flimsy to the point of wanting to self-edit for the sake of my sanity.

    A lot of rom-com OTPs haven’t gotten me through to the last episode lately so I’m grateful to HPL for that, even if I wish it could have been better overall.

        Yeah I feel sorry 😅
        It is probably bad, awkward acting. I have always felt uninterested in young actors in cool sophisticated roles. It’s like the inexperience shows through a lot more. Then the minute they get a goofy, dorky, or shy role I start to see their true potential.

@yyishere and @cloggie asked the Band of Errand Boys to post about our Not-So-Secret Mission to save stray cats (and other animals), so behold, I present :
– Missy, the 9yr old Spoiled white & brown Cat who thought she would be a single fur child forever, who doesn’t like men (especially my brother and my husband-to-be) but will accept treats from them and is scared of small children. She’s been with me since my dad passed away in 2010.
– Shuri, the 2yr old mostly-grey Cat (known as “My Little One”) who will walk all over you like you’re part of the furniture, loves to cuddle while lying across your body draped as flat as a pancake, and meows like she’s trying to howl. We got her last year in March.
Ta-dah!

        From what I remember she doesn’t really give him a chance but I could have bad memory.

        I think the drama did a good job with the ML compared to the Korean drama Playful Kiss which has the same kind of dynamic but bad executed (or I think it’s me who has a problem with it). It shows quite early on that he cares for her in his way so I didn’t feel like she was wasting her time.

        However, I didn’t like the leads as individuals but as flawed people they work well together. There are still some points in how they handle their relationship that ticked me off later but it’s still better than Playful Kiss imo.

        1
        1

          When I think about the fact that I not only watched the KDrama but also read the manga, I am ashamed. Playful Kiss is straight up a story about a very stupid girl who is obsessively infatuated with a terrible terrible teeerrible man who thinks less of her than a worm. Nothing playful about that relationship, really. Worse: they marry!

          1
          1

            Playful Kiss traumatized me for real but I still watched the mini episodes released on YouTube. I must be a masochist 😂 ALSB’s lead couple is nice compared to them but I don’t looove the drama. If I didn’t know PF there’s a high chance I would not like the drama.

        I was exactly the same. I didn’t understand the main guys appeal at all! He does redeem himself in the last episode (yes I know! You gotta wait!) The second guy becomes happy too but in another way! Keep on watching 🙂

          I agree with @coffeprince4eva–mainly because it’s a bit of a long and complicated answer that will give away too much. Keep on watching.

            To tell you have far these dramas have come–as you may know already but I still really want to say it. Love O2O was considered amazing because it didn’t have the typical brake-up and misunderstandings of K-Dramas of the time. In hindsight, it was very lacking. A Love So Beautiful came along and became another drama that wasn’t annoying as hell, but it too had it’s issues. I don’t see myself having much of any hindsight issues with PYHOMS.

      You added the ones I was thinking of! 🤗 Especially Ho-Gu, Dong Man, and Enrique will always have such special places in my heart…

        Same! They’re from some of my fave dramas too, and I love rewatching them because they’re all just such gooey sweet guys. I love that Ho-gu has no issue being a beta male, Go Dong-man is my favorite lovable meathead (possibly my favorite male lead?) and Que Geum is too cute for words.

          Hogu is just so admiring of his girl, and then grows to become his best self for her. I melt.

          I will never get tired of watching the just, straight up honest, sincere Dongman and his wonderful abs.

          And I have written essays on Que Geum that I have never posted because they are far too sappy for the public…

          The thing about Hogu and Dongman too is that they are regular guys just trying to make a living, and who have growth in their careers too as they pursue their dreams with support of their partners (and they don’t become super rich, but are able to take care of their families which is also their goal). They aren’t geniuses or rich or superpowered (unless DM’s abs count…), and (now including Enrique) they aren’t cold or sarcastic. They are warm hearted men who show their emotions and want to believe the best in others.

          … I’ll stop ranting now… good topic choice @kethysk 🤗

            I don’t know if you’ve seen Ex-Girlfriend Club but all this also describes the male lead in that one too. One of my all time faves because it features female friendships heavily, and the romance is super sweet. Also, Byun Yo-han is absolutely adorable.

            @snarkyjellyfish I haven’t seen it, but you just made a very convincing argument in its favor. I might have to watch it while I clean the house tomorrow ~

            Definitely do it. It’s also only 12 eps because it was cut by 4 eps so there are bits of the end that feel rushed, but nothing too obvious and it doesn’t hurt the story at all. Also, excellent soundtrack.

      niiiice!
      Wasn’t Kim Shin Hyuk a 2nd Lead though?

        That’s why when I put down my first second-lead onto the list (Xiang Zi Yan from Taiwan’s “Murphy’s Law Of Love”), I was like…. “Do second leads count??” XDDDD

        2
        1

          see, 2nd Leads are usually those nice guys, and we the audience are kinda baffled as to why the Leading lady doesn’t choose a nice guy who makes every effort to support and love her, and instead she picks the douchebag bad boy who needs a lot of growing up to do.
          thus this list of Leading Nice Guys 🙂

Ep 10 of Her Private Life was sooo satisfying!
Pure Gold. Ryan Gold.
Again, dear KDrama Writers, take note: the Rich Male Lead doesn\’t HAVE to be an a**hole to be sexy and charming.

    but i guess he still needs to be aloof and with a traumatic past that only a cheerful, loud spoken candy can cure

      alas, a traumatic past seems to be a requirement to keep us mildly entertained. I don’t find him aloof, though. as a matter of fact, he seems to be veeeeery affectionate and direct about his feelings for his lady.

        because candy changed him..
        you forget him in NY and judging others’ paintainings and bad mouthing ONE when he didn’t even know him (because now we know that he didn’t know him)

        its candy magic

          I’ll take that over the many pure douchebags kdrama has made us care about.

When you wish you knew how to speak Korean, Japanese and Chinese (mandarin) for the SOLE purpose of watching episodes without needing to wait for subtitles. #PolyglotFAIL #Foolishness

    Just 8 more hours until 4 new episodes with subs are out ~!!! Hang in there!!! HWAITING ~!!!!!

    LOL But growing up in a multi-language environment was actually more confusing than anything XD But I do admit that it did help later when I went on to watching shows other than in the English language… I have to admit that I do pick up languages faster than most, even without the formal “sit down and learn it in a classroom environment and school fashion” way of being taught the languages

When Fu Pei appears on your screen.
Me: \”I don\’t caaaare about this couple😣! Give me more Mo Mo and Gu Wei Yi!! More, please ! Pleeeease!\” 😭😍❤️😭😭

    No one: wow I sure love selfish, rude, second male leads and hope they get more screentime
    Fu Pei: at your service 😁

    Thankfully the rest of the drama is so well done and heartwarming that he’s easy to ignore lol

I am just here to say that \”Put your head on my shoulder\” is the cuuuutest show I have ever watched.

“Wait… is this NOT the typical Dyson vacuum cleaner??”
When Gu Wei Yi is cleaning and you notice this one has an electric cord!!
I’m so used to the overload of KDrama’s Dyson vacuum cleaner PPL, that this scene really got my attention!

I don\’t like the way Fu Pei bends forward to talk to Mo Mo, like she\’s some small creature. There\’s something so patronizing about it. I\’d rather he do \”manner legs\”, like a lot of tall Korean actors do.

    It feels like he’s treating her like a kid every time he does that. If someone did that to me I would tell to stand straight of not for me at least for their back.

    I have always wondered about it.
    Was it a way for the writer to tell us how Fu Pei was seeing MoMo (like a kid), or was it the actor who tried to be at the same height , etc. I’m curious to see how he’ll be standing once he moves on from MoMo.

      Weren’t he and Wang Shan taking about something like this? I don’t have the right wordings but on the night she confessed she talked about one of the many reasons he should go out with her was Because she’s cuz she’s tall? I’m like… 🤨

    I think it’s purposeful. He doesn’t see her as an equal and thus needs to lower himself to her level so to speak. She was his reserve just in case he couldn’t find someone he considered better, but as soon as her adoration stoped, he couldn’t handle it. What a putz
