Noooooo. Don’t leave Oppa! Don’t go Waikiki! 😢 What will I do without you? 😔🙁
As expected, Waikiki finale offered everything I wanted and more. It’s open ending gives me hope that we may one day come and visit the lives of this weird but quirky family. It started with silliness and ended in the same way… yet somehow the characters have transformed- their familial bond became stronger, their dreams became more vivid and most importantly, they’ve learnt to never give up no matter how difficult the road may be. The best thing? They never lost their good natured sense of fun right to the very end. I’m a happy viewer😁

    I can’t blame you though. This last episode did feel like a turning point for neutral beanies. I mean how can you resist cotton candy from the Advice Machine? Then he had to get a little petty and gave himself advice? Ok…need to stay neutral…no more Ye talk.

      I may have chosen the wrong ship… but I can’t turn back now. There’s Dr Ye… but also Bo Young. She really loves him and I gotta stand behind our girl for now. I might consider the Island of Neutrlity if I ever feel down…
      As a Ye Liner, let me give you some Yedvice. Hold on tightly to the palm trees… don’t board the ships until you’re 90% certain your heart won’t get broken. ;D

    Ouch. I was impressed but also felt that. I was about to ask Ye if I could give him some advice (still a tad protective over my stupid son) but by the time I mustered up the courage, he’d already done it!

    8
    2

      Exactly. I was like, “Uh… Dr. Ye… Maybe you shouldn’t go there. That’s a bit too much,” but he already gave advice to himself. And I love how self-aware he was that he was being petty.

      5
      1

      Ouch indeed. I think Min Ho deserves that. But I don’t think he realises why Ye did that lol. He hasn’t connected this together with what he did to Bo Young.
      Yeahhh… I really liked that inner monologue. It’s one of those scenes that show that he’s not the stoic, perfect person everyone thinks he is. I really like that he’s showing different sides of his personality (even if it’s in realllly small doses). 😊

    It was funny for me because, even though I totally enjoyed his pettyness, I thought it was really out of character for him to do that. It was cute when he acknowledged that afterwards ^^

      It was out of character. But I’d like to think that he’s slowly changing as he gets closer to Bo Young. Not massive changes yet… but enough that we’d get to see a reaction like that. And I liked that he acknowledged that too, like you said.

    I understand your frustration with Bo Young’s coworkers. Rant ahead: I get angry every time the interns are rude to her and the others humiliate her publicly. I know she is in a difficult situation as a contract worker but she deserves some respect! I would probably explode at some point and say “Do you want my advice? Mind your own business” to these people… and then I’d become an outcast or a snob. I don’t care because I like to keep relationships at work professional (like Dr Ye hehe). But Bo Young is a better team player than me and she’s trying to get that permanent job, so she lets a lot of stupid comments go. Still, I hope she learns how to diplomatically defend herself because I won’t be happy to board the Ye Line if he has to defend her every time.
    Sorry about the rant, I just noticed we had similar thoughts on this.

    9
    1

      No, don’t be! Thanks for sharing!
      And yeah I guess we do- totally agree with you about the coworkers. And Bo Young’s response to them. I guess she takes everything because she doesn’t want to be an outcast. There’s the job on the line and she’s a people person. It’s not in her to want to be lonely after blowing everyone off. That’s why she puts on a smile everyday, even if it hurts. And that obviously is why she likes Dr Ye. He doesn’t hide his feelings/thoughts about her like Min Ho. For once she actually hears positive things about her from someone.
      But you’re also right in saying that she can’t always rely on Dr Ye to stand up for her. (In my opinion, I don’t think she relies on him…I think she’s more surprised that he stands up for her…leading to her liking him). But I want her to defend herself too.

      5
      1

        Sure, I agree. Bo Young is super competent at work (what a relief!) and it’s not that she expects Ye to defend her but as you say, is surprised that he appreciates her and stands up for her. Low self confidence maybe. In time I hope she’ll learn how to do it herself without losing her good natured kindness.

    Yes UGHH I get his family situation isn’t the best but he’s always such a jerk and his situation doesn’t justify his actions. I hope Bo Young steps up for herself soon.

        The thing is we all know Bo Young is strong and independent when she chooses to be eg. does really well at the rehabilitation job despite wanting to go into Literature, being amazing at her part-times during school to earn money etc.. But it breaks my heart so see her being the “joke” during all the workplace convos and being shoved aside and not appreciated for her hard work eg.being deprived of the best customer care award. *huffs*

I’ve had enough of this group! 😬 Min Ho is one thing (I mean, he still needs to sort out his priorities- but I get he’s acting out of jealousy than actual hatred) BUT what is up with the coworkers?? And it’s not just the annoying sunbae (he’s no longer just annoying. He’s seriously toxic and humiliating). It’s like they all turn up to work just to insult and embarrass Bo Young out of spite. They all get a kick out of seeing her so dejected. 😐 I’m surprised she’s put up with these people for so long.

    IKR! I wanted to give that senior a pass b cos of his family situation. But this is getting out of hand. Even the two girl interns! I think the only one who’s somewhat Ok is her senior roomie (somewhat). And another reason why I don’t want her to be with minho. He keeps looking for chances to insult her. Who’s to say he’ll stop later? But I know kdrama logic. She’ll go back to him SIGH. ..

    6
    3

      P. S- I understand minho is jealous that’s why he’s acting out. But he’s being pretty dismissive about her. Being jealous doesn’t give you an excuse to insult her. I don’t want anyone to misunderstand.

      The sunbae does not get my pity. No matter how tough his situation is. He’s rude, he humiliates her, he forces her to do his work, he acts like he’s the only one with problems and he’s lazy! 😬

      I don’t even want to think about those interns. They need to go back to high school and learn some manners.

      Sighhh indeed. But kdrama logic aside, I guess if Bo Young ends up with him, it’ll be because he shows her he’s genuine and apologizes for everything he’s done to her. Because, you know, growth. I guess I’ll forgive him then… But there better be lots of serious groveling.

      While my heart weeps for Dr Ye…

        I hope that if she goes back to him, he would have become a better person.

          I dunno, I kinda like his advices too. I mean, the way he says it might not sit well with many people, but at least he doesn’t put his coworkers down by daily insulting them.

        I’ve seen in many workplace dramas that they keep picking on the lead girl or guy. Maybe because of their seniority she can’t fight back. It’s okay. At least here Dr. Ye is there for her. Another point to ye line. (I’m giving imaginary points. Who cares? )

        2
        1

          Yeah it’s probably because of the fact that there’s a hierarchy and she’s just a part-timer but everyone is going beyond teasing and is just being plain rude. I hope Dr.Park gets some karma because he always instigates the insults during the work gatherings/lunches.

    The ep was such whiplash because I was rooting for him but he kept on sabotaging her and the drunken outburst was too much. You don’t have the right to interfere with who she begins to like. Dr Ye stole the show instead. I feel like every 2 eps will alternate between showing the better side of each guy cause I’m already doubting my ship.

        😂😂 Your comments are 👌. The sling therapy will definitely be useful. I might jump aboard after watching ep 7 because the preview was so sweet. She needs a guy who can comfort her when she’s down whilst stepping up for her beliefs and well-being. I’m just not sure if it’s love or more like a shoulder to lean on. Guess we’ll see!

    1

      Oooh, I didn’t know you were an Ye Liner!
      Yeah, I keep giving him chances (well until ep 7) and he was just horrible in that. I can see he likes her… but that’s not good enough. Being petty and jealous is one thing. Now, he exposes all her past secrets and is rude to her on top of it!

      1
      0

*sigh* Oh Min Ho. Why am I not surprised? You’re hurting the feelings of the girl you like by exposing her embarrassing moments in front of her crush… so that she can like you instead… somehow? 🤔 Why does this always happen in K-dramas? And somehow he will be redeemed, and will apologise to her and she’ll return his feelings. I don’t know if I want that to happen anymore…
Whatever he was trying to do here certainly didn’t according to plan. I can’t believe this actually made Dr Ye laugh! First we get a smile, now a laugh. Small steps.

I think I have almost chosen my ship (as you can probably tell) but I will wait for confirmation that Ye returns Bo Young’s feeling… before boarding this ship. It’s not because I’m afraid this ship will sink. It has more to do with wanting Bo Young to be happy and not merely infatuated with Dr Ye. And likewise, I want Dr Ye to like her (he obviously already does… but I don’t think in a romantic way… yet).

19
0

There. He said it. And in this moment I would gladly join team Ye Line without a doubt. I can see why Bo Young likes him and I think they will be good together. However, I feel that even though he is being sincere…he doesn’t feel the same way about her. I think he trusts and likes her as a coworker, maybe even friend; but I don’t see him having romantic feelings for her.

20

    I can see his picture perfect qualities but still I can’t come to like him. He’s too perfect and I wouldn’t normally fall for someone like him I guess but that’s just me.

    3
    1

      I have to (politely) disagree. I know he’s been portrayed as someone who’s perfect and has all the good qualities. But if you look closely, (if you’re willing to I guess) I would say he does have his flaws.
      One of them would be how he dishes advice left and right to people he just met. He shouldn’t do that because nobody really cares (except him). Especially the way he gives them. It’s very in your face and I don’t think he realises that he’s hurting people. Or maybe he does and doesn’t care.
      I think if he was perfect, he would have pretended to fit in with his colleagues to get on their good graces. He’s obviously not a people person (doesn’t seem to have m/any friends) and this could be a negative depending on who’s judging him).
      This is just in my opinion. It depends on how we read the character I guess:)

      5
      1

        When I meant perfect I meant like as a bf material. He has the traits which are quite rude like you said but I wasnt talking in regard of how he’s with people. Since we were talking about the relationships, that was my main concern.
        I also mentioned this about pretty noona, but for me why someone falls for a person is quite important, which is the decisive factor for me to fall for the otp lol. Like in ‘you are beautiful’, I felt for the otp when the guy was trying to save the girl from the running truck where she was hiding. That slowmo run of tae kyung made it for me. If you have seen the show you would know haha. So here, from the start I could more see Bo Young’s obsession with Dr. ye is more like an infatuation, it isn’t an organic process. These type of love stories also exist I guess, just not my cup of tea. 🙂 But then we are different people so that’s why the difference in opinions, end of the day.

          Hmm, I guess I can see where you’re coming from. He does seem like a perfect bf material (in comparison to Min Ho anyway).
          Ah yes, You’re Beautiful. Lol! I actually had my first SLS in this drama. I could not stand the lead guy. We are the opposites hahaha.
          I would say both her crushes (in the past when she liked Min Ho) are infatuations. But I guess it is becoming more real as she realises that Dr Ye may return her feelings (depending on how he’s worried about her etc.)
          But yeah, like you said everyone’s likes a different cup of tea;D

        You know how the mom keeps threatening legal action? My Dream is for a child of one of the ahjummas to show up, turn out to be a lawyer and join the ahjummas in protecting Seung Joo!

          Lol! That’s an awesome dream! HA, let’s hope the mum is still alive by then… sje needs to be brought to justice. Dying is the easy way out…

            Oh gosh, I don’t get the feeling it’s a drama where characters will die to get out of things ~ but who knows, the makjang isn’t always expected 😜
