Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

JR-ssi, to compete with a Kiss Master, you’ll have to take charge and turn yourself into a Kiss Monster first.

As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect. Please schedule as much rehearsal time in as possible this week!! You owe me at least this much Reach of Sincerity for putting my heart through the ringer unnecessarily last week.


Hail to transforming uri Pinku 💗Pinku into Kissu 😚Kissu for the final 2 episodes!!

Dear PD Park of Reach of Sincerity,

You have so far created a wonderful trope soup of a show with such refreshing taste, so please stop making it turn and spoil the entire pot with the upcoming episodes!


We all tune in for something like this:


If you insist (and persist) especially after the BTLIOF debacle, you will forever be CUT CUT CUT from Kimbap’s list!!!


#BecauseThisDramaMightBeOurLast, PD-nim

    💚 Agreed minus the BTLIOF part. What lead to this was really stupid though. He tells her that she doesn’t have to communicate things. He himself doesn’t communicate things. So, friggin, stupid, but somewhat understandable given their newness to relationships. Argh.

      Ughhhh I second that! So much communication prior, only to breakup due to such minor miscommunication. But first love hurts…

        At least in the preview the pain of this separation seems to make YS a better actress? 😆
        *tries hard to spin this positively

        2

          Yeah. I was watching the commentary and how they kept mentioning that she’s at the law firm for field experience. Come to think of it. It’s an entire package other than learning to be a lawyer. Re: field experience on how to date. Breakups included.

        Are you serious right now noona. These writers now. Noble idiocy as a plot device to make her a better actress. I mean, as far as the story goes, it makes sense. As far as my initial frustration goes, FIND SOMETHING ELSE!!!

    I don’t even feel like watching the latest episode.

    1

      I postpone watching it until today, and there are still plenty of cute and enjoyable parts, @mayhemf! (Just don’t watch the preview.)

      The writing through episode 12 actually still left me with faith that the big stinking N.I. will not be long last since Jung-rok himself literally said that he is not going to go along with the drama cliche, so at least the show has this meta awareness that this trope is tiresome.

      6

        I watched it raw, and will only watch the subbed one on Monday or Tuesday. So that I’m prepared for the next episode.

        Yup, I decided to trust a little after JR made that statement. Let’s hope the show turns this trope on its tiresome head pronto.

          I am now wishing that the preview is all just clever/manipulative editing to lead the viewers believe that they are going through a full bout of NI next week, @dramafan12! 😆

          0
          1

            I am right there with you, @kimbapnoona. I’ll give them a pass for being Machiavellian if that’s the case. This has been such a fabulous romantic comedy on so many levels, there’s no need for full blown NI. Just Nope.

    Stupid trope and stupid pot. 😂

    What makes it even more frustrating is the fact that they actually have a more ‘acceptable’ reason for breakup before (like her lying to him about her reason working in a law firm or the initial misunderstanding about Yeo-reum) that instead showed just how honest and supportive they are. Jung-rok’s reason is silly at best. She is a 30 something woman, for God’s sake, she knows well what she wanted to do with her own life. And I didn’t buy her manager reasoning at all because I’ve seen in real life how actor/actress who suddenly announced their marriage with non-celebrity instead got many best wishes from their fans. *hint, hint* *nudge, nudge* (If you are worried about being caught dating, just get married instead, guys.)

      I was thinking the same thing!! Don’t want a dating scandal? GET MARRIED.

        😂😂😂 Hear hear!!
        Or fight scandal with scandal: make a baby, oh please make adorable babies together!!
        And please do it soon before I stop liking you, Jung-rok!!

      It is funny how upset I feel when noble idiocy hasn’t really arrived yet. Judging from the preview, it seems like full-blown case of NI. 😂

      As you said, @gadis, It is upsetting really because all along JR talks about getting through obstacles TOGETHER. He even talked about averting this drama cliche when confronted by Manager Oppa…..and then all for naught? It is almost like the writer and director is toying with us: “hey we know this trope is overused and tiresome, but here it is!” *facepalm

Reach of Sincerity Episode 11 has plenty of suspense but also just enough of sweetness from our OTP

I am ready for you Episode 12!! I know uri Pinku 💗Pinku and I will conquer the chaebol angst, together.

Also, if this is not the definition of ADORKABLE I don’t know what is!! 😂

While dreading what the story this week might do to me like this:

But fear none Kimbap, in Jin-sim and Jung-rok I trust.

We might first think that this is just Jin-sim’s hilariously embarassing fantasy of being arrested by her favorite attorney to spend eternity together….

It is actually her undercover memories surfacing from their past life together….

Please don’t drink the oblivion tea this life! You have been granted so much sunny joufulness while being surrounded by lovely people.


And I know that ur couple will comfort and support each other reapering through the upcoming chaebol angst!

    After watching the second gif, what was TYH’s hairstylist thinking for giving Jung-rok a Demi Moore’s hairstyle in Ghost. It doesn’t elevate his look, and a 35 year old professional won’t have time to maintain that bang.

      Hahaha, I am glad you are thinking about K-drama styling and how it relates to everyday life reastically, @manohira! Let’s just say BECAUSE he is too busy, he keeps forgetting to trim his bangs and thus leads to its eyebrow immersion state!

    i thought TVN and crew have on purpose wrote the characters this way.. like in their mind too they were only delivering the next lifetime story of reaper and sunny.. and make money out of what audience desperately wanted

    if only the drama was a hit, YIN would have benefited

      I actually dropped Goblin around episode 6 or 7 so I never experienced the love so many viewers had for the Reaper/Sunny couple. I love them as they are now so much now I am watching YT clips of them together in Goblin!

I am head over heels for Reach of Sincerity but I give this drama 99 points, with 1 very big fat point docked for a capital offense in an otherwise perfect rom com, for two reasons following:

(1) Why does this scene start with LDW coming out of the bathroom and NOT while he is in the shower? 🤔which cuts to……

(2) Why is he suddenly fully dressed without us witnessing the process? 😠


Show, you have been giving me with much generosity all kinds of swoon, why so withholding?😭😭😭


One pinku pinku 💗point, ELIMINATED!!!

Sometimes Oh Jin-sim is at risk of overacting to protect the secret of their office romance

And sometimes her overflowing joy translates into the sincere form of physical violence affection


💗All that is to say, I need more startled Jung-rok in my life💗

    YT Commenter Lim Jie Ai’s translation:

    YS: It smells so good
    JR: I am glad you like it
    YS: But why should we do now? We said to watch movie together, but ended up not watching, I am sorry
    JR: I am actually glad/relieved we didn’t get to watch movie
    YS: Yes?
    JR: Actually, I couldn’t sleep a wink last night, I was so nervous. The thought of coming to OJS-ssi’s house seemed so strange and awkward, and excited too.
    YS: Me too! The thought of Mr Kwon coming over also made my heart beat so much and nervous. I also have insomnia, so I was really flipping around last night.
    YS: Wah, I thought I was the only one
    JR: Yes, I was like that too. Even though I was very nervous, but after looking at the pretty pictures just now, I am not nervous anymore
    YS: Me too! I finally feel relieved just now after looking at the photos. I keep on having the images of you coming to my house, we talk and eat throughout the night, I keep on having all kinds of thoughts. With all that being said, I wasn’t having any bad thoughts….
    JR: Bad thoughts, perhaps…?
    YS: I mean….
    KISS
    JR: Do you mean something like this? Or, you mean this……..
    KISS KISS KISS

      Hehe @mayhemf, we don’t really know if he will keep “demonstrating” what he really meant by “bad thoughts” because the clip ended!!! 🤣🤣🤣

      I usually roll my eyes for couples who are over 30s and are still so chaste (while recognizing that this is K-drama) but they are just love, in the purest, most lovely way!!

      Keep on progressing, uri Pinku Pinku couple!!

        Finally finished this episode. These two! This was the best episode for me. Really. Loved how far they have come. So confident in their relationship with no room for doubt. They both have built a solid foundation.

          Each episode lets our couple grow deeper at such a natural pace which makes me have so much faith in this pairing. I am not even slightest bit anxious about the picking chaebol angst, @mayhemf because I know they are support and rely on each other.

          This week’s episodes really have a wonderful balance between the cute and heart. 💕

As a celebrity she is used to the finger pointing, but she never would have thought that her finger drew his increasing attention.

Even when she herself feeling lost or misunderstood, she gathers up the courage to offer direction

She moves to beat of her own music and it tickles his awareness of her loveliness

Despite feeling lacking, her affectionate expression of appreciation for him entices him to quicken the pace to meet where she wants him to be.

As their feelings deepened, she wanted to put it in his, but he suggested to put it in her own.
Later she laughed about what happened, and he began to gently bring it into his. She never expected that this would bring her this much warmth and comfort.

Some days had passed when late one night he was feeling particuarly vulnerable, she gathered up the courage to ask for a promise. She reached across, and he met her halfway. They interlocked, stamped, and held on for a while feelig unified in body and spirit.

Please tell us, YS-ssi, after several trials, does JR\’s back feel as sincere as one imagines?

We the observers are lacking information because PD-nim has been withholding shower scenes where we usually gather evidence for inquiries such as this.

    He needs to start brooding and pondering about complex legal cases while in the shower. How else do we take the legal matters seriously PDnim?
