Beanie level: Water maid

For a moment I seriously thought they had changed his hair again… and given him some odd geisha-esque lipstick… Am I weird?

I just finished this drama. What a rollercoaster the last episode was. Towards the end I was questioning my sanity for torturing myself with this right after HMS. Thank god this has a happy end.

    I am also so glad this had a happy ending. I would hate to watch Junho leave brokenhearted.

Just Between Lovers Ep. 7

Does anyone know if this is a drama reference? It looks to be that way… otherwise it’s just weird. ^^’

Still enjoying this show. I really like the mood.

    I thought it was just showing his irrepressible optimism. He thinks he’s as handsome as Jin Young.

So I’m binging Just between Lovers.
For the longest time I couldn’t figure out why the lead actor looked familiar because I have not seen him in anything. It hit me then that he looks just like Suga.

    His clothing style is very similar to MY in TSHLYE, isn’t it? Enjoy JBL! One of the best dramas of 2018 🙂

      I’ve heard many good things from Beanies so I’m checking it out. I’m really enjoying it immensely so far. I’m just on episode 5 though and drama fatigue sets mostly in after the half-way point.

      I like the casual jeans and t-shirt/sweatshirt style. It doesn’t give me pause the way a flawlessly put together (designer) outfit on a poor person usually does. So far I also find the mood to be similar to TSHLEY – minus the is-the-lead-a-sociopath question.

    He’s can also sing and is technically Suga’s sunbaenim (or ‘senior) in the K-pop world, as he’s a member of the JYP boyband named 2PM

    Oh, yes, he also sang an OST for “Just Between Lovers” 🙂

I’m fine with the way they ended things. I swear. *cries in a corner*
I just don’t understand what motivated JG to go as far as stabbing MY if they weren’t related. I just don’t

So, I didn’t actually understand what they talked about in this scene but I just really like the way this shot is framed. It looks so tender and you can see MY struggeling emotionally throughout.

Some excellent hand acting and funny selfies. Also the kiss…

I just love that this show keeps giving us these BTS vids and still has the little previews at the end of each episode.

Will we ever find find out when MY and JK met for the first time? It’s been bugging me since MY mentioned in Episode 2 that they had met 3 times before his introduction as SA boyfriend…

Does anyone know any dramas similar in style and mood to The Smile Has Left Your Eyes?

Can be from any country not just Korea. I just need something until the next episodes come out.

      Which one exactly? The Korean Series? I looked it up on MyDramaList and there are 5 with that title ^^, but that one sounded the most likely one…

        The drama with Ji Sung, it’s also a melo with dark vibes though not as mysterious as Million Stars.

    You can try ‘Secret Affair’ . It’s a bit dark.

    Not really, this show is unique. Rarely do we get dramas were the male lead is a mysterious anti-hero. But if I think of something, I will post.

    not the same, but an a drama with an «anti-hero» would be My ahjussi!! (still my all time favorite drama).

    I’m still looking😂. If you watch HK dramas there’s one that has a good juicy villainous protagonist. Except the over all quality of the drama is nowhere near this. “Two Steps From Heaven”

    I don’t think any kdrama has been like this but in terms of style and mood, I have heard My Ajhussi was similar. I will add Just Between Lovers, Life on Mars and Prison Playbook here just for that weird melancholic feel. Maybe AM 1988 too…

    Though they are all different genres and I dunno why I am bunching them up together… Maybe cuz they are all great drama.

    In terms of the plotline, the American series “Dexter” is about a screwed up lead. But again, HMS is just different!

    Maybe check out the Japanese version of the show….

      Will check them all out… Except for the Japanese Version. I’m trying to stay strong on that front until the drama finished airing so as not to spoil myself further. *Lord, give me strength*

    If you’re talking about dark, depressing and moody, I highly recommend Soredemo, Ikite Yuku.

    I wish I could stop thinking about this show… It just doesn’t leave my mind!

    I second or third My Ahjussi, if you’re into 100MSFTS style, you’ll love My Ahjussi.

I’m rather sad that the Reid character in the korean version is less badass/know-it-all than the original. He is my absolute favorite character. And this scene is a good example of why. #CriminalMinds

    I had a hard time separating the original characters from the Korean counterparts. The korean version of Dr. Reid was the biggest disappointment. He didn’t have the same vibe or sorted of social awkwardness of the original. I wanted him to be the weird genius prodigy wunderkind always spouting random facts.

      Not sorted. Hahaha

      I very much feel the same way.

      At some point the Reid-charcter suggested that the murderer suffered from split-personality disorder and then one of his team members immediatly contradicted him by mentioning that in none of their cases ever has a murderer suffered from that. I mean statistics are Reid’s thing and making a suggestion without factual backhground is also very un-Reid-like.

      This character had the most potential but he fell flat for me, even if I didn’t compare him to the original.

        Too true, he was the only character that didn’t make an impression. I do really like the Garcia character, what little we got of her.

      I totally agree with you. I love Dr Reid Spencer but the K-drama version is a huge letdown. Hopefully he will grow into the character.

      So is Jun Ki’s character modeled after Derek Morgan? Has to be right? I hope he has the same kind of banter with the K-drama version of Penelope Garcia, but a milder version obviously since it is Korea after all and some of their exchanges were a tad risqué for work haha 😜

        Not sure. He could be an amalgamation of some of the characters. It’s kinda hard to say at this point.

This scene has me giggling every single time. I just love this drama – although there is remarkably little drama going on. #LoveO2O

Does anyone know any similar dramas?

Smooth going there Dong-man. I espescially like how honest they are about their expectations in regards to their relationship. No uncertainty on that front which is really refreshing.
