Ryan Gold – Her Private Life
Gu Wei Yi – Put Your Head on my Shoulder

      How could I forget Go Dong-Man from Fight My Way!!! Yes! he waaaaas a caring and nice guy from Day 1!

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

      1
      1

        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.

        2
        2

          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…

          2
          0

          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?

      1
      1

        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 🙂

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

    4
    1

      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.

      3
      1

        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

    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

“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.

    5
    1

    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… 🤨

      1
      0

    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

Sometimes, you\’re just in the mood for a predictable plot, fun shenanigans and an OTP who have 1000% onscreen chemistry and good 2-way communication.

        I had to keep hitting pause on episode 5 to get screenshots, and then decided to just watch episode 6 and screenshot it after because I needed a second round of those two anyway. But let me just say, there was a a lot of fanning myself in this week’s episodes. Kim Jae-wook — those eyes are deadly.

Currently watching OBSESSED and while I really really like it, I find there seems to have been a writing problem around ep 8,9 and 10. It\’s as if everything was going so well and now the writers realized the plot moved a liiiiittle too fast, and they’re now sidetracking with all sorts of needless plot lines. 1st there was the zombie plotline, which fell flat, in spite of the great set up. I mean, the used one of the protesters as their guinea pig for the zombie water, and this should have been the start of a great debate in the inherent goodness in people… but no…
Then there was the video of the father who met the bully of his dead son on the rooftop. Again, this seemed to lead to something but nope. Not even a follow up on what happened to the unfortunate father-turned-murderer.
The murder-a-week plot was also dropped…
And noooow we have our Main Man being possessed by the Old Cop and the Bad Guy slowly but surely seducing the Old Cop’s daughter.
But no wait: 1st, let’s add another evil spirit to fight.
Point: it’s clear to me that Writer-nim was a little to engrossed in the Main Leads’ awesome character & love line development to notice that the rest of the plot was going forward at lightning.
And now we’re stalled…😩
[Thank you for reading. I needed to vent. ]

    I’ve only watched till ep 7, but I agree that the drug plot and the bullied victim’s story was rushed through with no proper conclusion. The manufacturer was demanding more money, so he killed him? He’s smart enough. He should’ve been more creative in threatening him or made someone his assistant so that they could take over. Also the hero didn’t follow up on the rooftop victim. If he did. maybe he could’ve prevented the girl’s death on the stairs. Didn’t the ghost warn him that the victims will be a clue to the next one? Instead he was moping around heartbroken. The romance is sweet, but it’s supposed to be balanced. The show was doing a good job of balancing the horror, comedy and romance initially. Hopefully it will become all right.

    Remember to do things for yourself and your other half… Don’t do things for the sake of pretty or for the sake of having it so that people will like it or whatever– do it for yourself and because you like it…. It’s your special day and it should be planned so that YOU have a good time, and should not be planned with the mindset that you want to be a people-pleaser or have an Instagramm-able or Pin-able (Pinterest) wedding

      dear @bebeswtz the “Instagram-able and Pinterest-able” advice is indeed a reality. thanks for that. In an age where you’re bombarded with snippets of excellence, comparison is more than common place. What should simply be used for “inspiration” has now turned into “goals” and “must have”.

I paused binge-watching Matrimonial Chaos in order to start & catch up on Sky Castle, but I’m really glad I didn’t completely forget it. I watched the last 2 eps of Matrimonial Chaos and it was soooo lovely! And messy and heartfelt and relatable.
And it’s at the very end that I realize that actor Son Seok-Koo (the flakey cheating husband Lee Jang-Hyun) is in fact the Handsome Detective to Doona Bae’s sass in Sense8!!! No wonder I loved his very very flawed character! His character was so quirky here that in as much as I hated him for cheating AND for using his weird past as an excuse, his strange starry-eyed responses to real life were so endearing. It’s like you just want to fix him, even though we all know that it is not a person’s job to fix another!
I’m glad it worked out and that he got married. Here’s to hoping he’ll be good to his gorgeous wife till the end of their lives together!
