    Ah Mary, but did you actually talk to (real) people when you were out of the house?

      oh @cloggie maybe that’s too much pressure already on @mary baby steps 😉

      No because according to current dramaland trends, they could be secretly dead or possessed.

        Look for a priest with killer cheekbones. He has lots of exorcism experience.

        On the other hand, maybe give that nice looking ghost a Subway.

          W-why does the priest look like a serial killer I know?

          (Disclaimer: I’m not in the habit of befriending serial killers.)

            I hear it’s a part-timer economy in South Korea.

            (Note: I seem to gravitate to SK serial killers. It’s a thing. This priest side gig is not helping)

        It’s just that I’ve been told that this is the true test of being an extrovert: not only do you have to talk to people, but you have to enjoy it too!

          Ah, but this butterfly thing is actually a meme. >___< I'm aware what extroverts do… https://www.vox.com/2018/5/15/17351806/is-this-a-pigeon-anime-butterfly-meme-explained

            I know… I just thought you sounded a bit worried and I wanted to reassure you that there are quite a few steps left to go

            1
            0

            But… that will make me even more worried! At least, if my goal is to become more extroverted.

            0

            Why would you want to be more extroverted? Then you’d want to go out and talk to people, instead of staying in and watching dramas. And who would want that?

            No, I meant that maybe you were worried that you were no longer an introvert and I wanted to set your mind at rest.

            Aww <3 I was just making fun of my extreme aversion to going outside. Two days of running chores and I already think I'm being outgoing when we all know squeaking a thank you at bank tellers and buying books don't count. XD

            Thanks for finding ways to make me keep my Introverts U card. You should be my defense counsel when @egads holds the hearing!

        Oh no, @midnight @blnmom it’s okay. I’m just so used to the quiet that it hurts when the spammers make me hope and kill it. I hope there’s time to do a recap/Open Thread instead with a show that’s super fun, so there’ll be lots to talk about other than viagra ads LOL

    I loved to make comments on the Marry Me Now videos but I was often talking to myself. Lol.

      :'( I’m also like trying to nudge people to comment on those instead of having scattered discussions for their dramas, but I think it’s hard to move the discussion to a new video post every week compared to just staying and talking in one post.

      1
      1

        I will keep all of my comments for the weekend 50 ep dramas under the videos. It’s hard though because the videos are posted so much later after the eps air. I will make the extra effort because I appreciate you posting videos. FIGHTING! 😁

          Nooo just post them anywhere.. it’s my fault for posting the videos late. I’ll try to post them right away so people can comment when they want to.

    Having a little look see (especially the videos!), but it is amazing! The bots now tell their life story, incomprehensible, in various languages…

        We got back from Japan late on Sunday and I went back to work yesterday.
        My head is filled with images and impressions and it will certainly take me a while to sort everything out. I loved, loved, loved our trip. Now I just need to convince my husband that many trips to visit different countries in Asia are necessary.

        I’m going to watch the first episode tonight. *hugs*

      Yes, for a show that’s considered a melodrama, it is not dramatic nor manipulative in wringing emotions. Much of the credit goes to the actors playing Na Moo who are beautifully nuanced yet absolutely heartbreaking.

      4
      1

        I agree both Nam Da Reum and Jang ki Yong are doing great conveying very subtle emotions. However, I will also credit the overall calm ambiance to the pd and obv the writer. There are little things, like no extra bgm or even songs (I haven’t heard a single song in the show), no shouting and even the female lead has been through a lot she is unlike all kdrama damsel in distress fl.

      Is it weird that when Ye drunkenly admitted “I thought it was the right thing to do so I declined, but my heart hurts”, my first reaction was to whoop in laughter cause Chief Yang’s gonna think it’s his fault again? 🤣

        Then I’m weird too. I whooped in laughter while getting all teary-eyed. This drama really like to mess with my emotion.

If we have the same taste in shows, you might like Our Times. It’s a TW-movie from a couple years back. (Warning: the official MV is spoilery. But it’s packed with feels and made me obsess over the movie months before the actual screening.)

            Did the producer plan to make three generation go to watch the movie by casting both Andy Lau and Jerry Yan? 😂

    Close your eyes
    Picture your favorite place
    The sun is setting
    The wind is ruffling your hair
    .
    .
    Someone sits next to you
    And your eyes slide open
    to see Dr. Ye lean close
    and with his long fingers
    push your hair behind your ear

    Ooops, sorry.

    I love how devoted he is to his alligator. :D*

      Even when he’s super giddy or super guilty, it doesn’t matter what’s happening, there’s a part of his brain reserved for watching out for his alligator. It’s so cute but also hurts my heart at the same time to think how much he treasures that shirt.

      12
      1

        For ten years! How his alligator is still attached to his shirt is a wonder to me. Or maybe alligator knows how much it is treasured so it’s trying its best to hang on, perfect couple these two.

        6
        1

          I love that Min-ho could’ve gifted him another shirt at any point during their friendship but he respects Nam-woo’s pride. (Like when Min-ho wanted him to stay at the cousin’s posh apartment but Nam-woo didn’t want to so he just treated him to a meal instead.)

          6

            Exactly the reason why I love him, (among many others) he’s a good and respectful friend to NamWoo.

    I hate everything about this preview and episode 9. Ugh my heart hurts! I don’t even think I properly understood the reason why for the whole rejection thing. The flashback was so confusing!

    0
    1

      He was guilty about leaving his father figure sunbae to suffer alone in that hospital, because he chose to leave for personal reasons. Now he thinks that being in a relationship at work complicates things. If he doesn’t enter into one, he can keep on protecting patients or supporting sunbaes or whatever it is Super Doctors do. That’s why he’s built up all these walls at Shinsun Hospital.

      But (I think) his heart was healing normally, just enjoying spending time with Bo-young and not forcing anything… until the encounter with ex-gf reminded him of the pain and hardened his resolution to never like someone at work again. I hope he suffers for rejecting Bo-young. Hahahahaha

      4
      2

        Ugh! I can just feel all the angst coming in next episode. 🙁 But Dr.Ye is kind of an idiot if he thinks he can just be at that hospital and not form relationships. Everyone in that hospital is all up in every one else’s business, all the freaking time! Its what makes them awesome! He better own up to his stupid mistake next episode and make up to Bo-young. Preferably with a cheese-tastic confession! Maybe he can organize a flash mob! 😛

        2
        1

          I’d love to see THAT! I’d even settle for a Dr Ye flashmob in Bo-young’s or Nam-woo’s imagination, as long as they get Lee Joon-hyuk to do it.

        I hope he suffers too, at this point I don’t care who Bo Young ends up with as long as the drama ends with her happy 😁
