Beanie level: Errand boy

Kim Bok-joo here is me every time opposing counsel tries to mansplain my job to me.😒

You know, the job that I do every day here, unlike you Mr.”This isn’t my first rodeo”. Ugh.😡

    You’re an attorney? I think I might have know this before. That’s cool!

      Yeah — and law school is also the reason I got into drama, so as much as I have mixed feelings about my profession I can’t hate it too much.

I mean, I’d have gone for “selfish b****” personally, but this works too.

    Is she even human? 😬 I hate her character! I don’t get why she’s given so much screen time.
    Anyways, I like your definition better. 😏

      there are three people I hate watching in this drama : Writer Ra, Evil Stepmom, and Tae Ri. I hate that so much of my drama time is given to them so I end up watching in 4x speed.

Hands down one of my favorite drama couples.

I love how sweet these two were together. They always just felt right, especially in these quiet moments.

    Omg throwback to one of my favorite dramas. I loved Witch’s Romance. Their relationship was so adorable and I loved how he supported her in her goals and just allowed her to be herself, however, she chose to be. The workplace ageism really irked me as well as the double standards but I loved how Ban Ji Yeon rode full steam ahead. Even when some of it got ahead she didn’t compromise on her talents and ambition. She preferred to meet her own expectations rather than societies.

Shout out to Yong-shik, who has the best facial expressions ever.

Ban Ji Yeon is the best. I loved her confidence and the fact that she was good at her job and never let anyone else define her or beat her down.

I finally finished Witch’s Romance and this is easily going down as a favorite drama and a fantastic female lead.

I loved this shot. It perfectly contrasts Ji-yeon’s relationships with both men.

With Dong-ha she’s in the light, even in a scary situation; with Shi-hoon, she’s in the dark on a happy occasion.

    I love this Show! Witch’s Romance is one of my all time favorites. ^^

      Finally watching it. I was saving it for a rainy day, but I made do with a snowy long weekend instead. I really really like it. The chemistry is bananas and the writing is so strong and it really just works on all levels and never feels draggy or boring. I really want to see the Taiwanese original now too.

This scene was so charged and so heartbreaking. The look on Dong-ha’s face killed me. But, I have to admit it’s refreshing to see a hero be so honest about his feelings.

      No, it’s Witch’s Romance and I believe it aired in 2014. But it’s SO GOOD. Highly recommend.

    its SO DAMN GOOD…. i started it as i liked noona romance trope but it killed it with all emotions and true love kinda feeling. i still can imagine myself gasping while watching this intense scene…
    great to see i am not alone who loved this drama…..

      I just love how these two are so well matched as a couple that it doesn’t even feel like a noona romance. I’m almost at the end, and I love that the age thing isn’t even really an issue for anyone anymore. It’s like, these are two people who are perfect together, period. And good lord, the chemistry between them…the screen practically crackles when they’re on together.

        woohoo… chemistry don’t even let me start on that… from the start till the end not even a single scene when i dint have to fan myself seeing these 2 together😳😳😳….this one included.

        age was indeed core of this drama but it was used in such intelligent way to not to look it cliche plotline.

        it ended up one strong headed woman with a supportive life partner (my favorite plot ever)…

    Damn seeing your posts, the thought of watching it comes into my mind. I knew this show existed, but I couldn’t bear to start because of the large age gap. I knew this was from a Taiwanese remake, but in the original, visually wise, both of them didn’t look like they had a big age gap. But it was quite apparent in the Korean drama which is stopping me from watching.

      Oh I definitely recommend it. Honestly, the age gap while addressed is used so well and such a non-issue for most of the drama. These two characters are really well matched which I really love. I’m not against noona romances, but I also don’t gravitate towards them, but 95% of the time I’m watching this I never even think of it that way because these two characters are so well matched it seems more insane that they not be together.

Romance schmomance. I’m here for this bromance.

(OK, I lie, I am all about this drama’s romance. But I also love these two.)

I really want to punch Shi-hoon: as far as I can tell he never apologized for being MIA for 6 years but he expects Ji-yeon to be the same and not have changed? He should be groveling his ass off. UGH.

    the most annoying & entitled second lead I ever saw. He still thinks of himself as her dream guy when he gave her so many nightmares.

      He’s so enraging. And then he has the gall to break up with her all “You endured for six years, but I can’t deal with the fact that you may have moved on a bit”? UGH. He’s the most infuriating second lead ever.

I love that it never feels like Dong-ha is a puppy mooning after his noona (and I love my puppies) but rather, despite the age gap, these two are well matched in terms of feelings and maturity.

    This is a wonderful noona romance. I fell in love with Park Seo-joon because of this show. I have good memories of this drama. Enjoy!

      I’m really liking it, especially because it really feels so mature and I really understand and feel for all the characters (except Shi-hoon, he can go die in a fire). Also, the chemistry between these two is just fantastic. Every facial expression, every mood, every feeling is conveyed so beautifully by them.

All of Dong-ha’s faces when he’s spying on Ji-yeon’s blind date are the best.

How is everything that happens in this show so ridiculously funny? I was crying when Seo-jin got locked in with her sunbae crush and clocked him over the head to keep him from finding out her secret.

Two things:
(1) I’m sorry, you disappered for 6 years and don’t try to clear the air AT ALL, and you expect to be taken back? Really? Are you high? (Actually, you might be considering your hardcore painkiller perscripstion.) Rgardless, unless you were in a coma for 6 years and then got amnesia or were literally locked away so you had no access to communication, I can’t deal. How is that even a remotely normal line of thought? Couldn’t drop a postcard, send an email, pick up the phone? Nuh-uh, no dice dude. I don’t even care that it’s obvious your psycho assistant manipulated this whole situation. You are an autonomous being with control over your actions, and you did diddly in 6 years. I would sove you in the pool and never look back.

(2) That’s totally the pool Kim Woo-bin’s a*****e character shoves Park Shin-hye into in Heirs, right?

Started Witch’s Romance and so far I like it. I love the very real-feeling female lead who is the perfect mix of strong, smart, sassy, and accomplished and yet is still vulnerable and human.

    That’s a good one. I had a bit of a Park Seo-joon crush for a while after watching it.

      I have more than a bit of a Park Seo-joon crush…but that’s another obsession for another time. I was saving this one for a rainy day, but I decided a snowy weekend would suffice just as well. I’m hiding indoors until I have to go back to work on Tuesday.

I’ve just realized that with snow and a long weekend I can totally binge some drama! Now, what to binge? Fluff? Romance? Mystery? Slice of life? Melo? So many options.

    I’m always down for fluff..and a long weekend!! Nice!

      Leaning towards Witch’s Romance though The Princess’s Man is also on my list. And The Package. Basically I have a huge list.

        I have not seen Witch’s Romance or The Princess’s Man. But The Package is decent. It is shot beautifully and the stories are done well. I enjoyed it.

        I have seen everything but Princess’s Man. Witch’s Romance is pretty straightforward rom-com with sizzling chemistry. The Package is indescribable, sorta slice-of-lifey/romancey/dramady? And from what I have heard PM is sweeping epic goodness. Have an enjoyable weekend binging!

          I know, I can’t quite decide which one. Leaning towards Witch’s Romance, since it’s a bit shorter and seems super bingeable. I mean, I’m technically still like four episodes behind on Hwayugi which will definitely take some time to catch up with. But then again, I do have two long weekends, so maybe one binge this week, one next week?
