Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

Some HPL 10 thoughts:

— I know PMY is the chemistry fairy, but this is getting out of hand. I am ready to declare this the sexiest couple of all time.
— Her bestie: “Don’t confess to Ryan.” “Don’t tell Eun Gi you’re dating.” Girl, I love you, but you give terrible advice.
— I wish so much Eun Gi had always just been her brother. I love the moments when her and Eun Gi tease each other playfully. And I loved the scene in this ep when the three of them are on the couch commiserating and supporting each other—I wanted more of these moments and less love sick (and pushy and boundary-ignoring) NotBrother things.
— On Eun Gi, I give credit to the actor for making me feel sad for him even though I mostly wish he’d hop on the nearest flight to Australia. (And take Di An with him).
— As much as I love Ryan for realizing why she was hiding, and for being forthright enough to admit he knew all along, I am a little disappointed Dok Mi wasn’t the one to reveal her fangirl side to him. It would have been a nice bit of character development for her to own up to that on her own.

And then of course, there’s the crinkle smiles.

    I think the friend’s advice of Don’t tell Eun Gi was more about being Eun Gi’s friend than Deok Mi’s at that moment. She’s kinda stuck between the two.

    I was disappointed in Deok Mi for not revealing herself because the second Eun Gi put himself between her and Ryan as someone who likes her hiding behind him was wrong, not to mention bad for their relationship.

      Yeah, you’re right as to the why. But if you try to make two people happy, neither will end up being.

      Yeah, agree. It’s not good for the second day of being a couple. She has some growing up to do as far as her fan life goes.

    The thing is, i LOVE coffee prince – it is one of the earliest dramas i watched which single handedly solidified my interest and appreciation of Kdramas.

    I LOVED gongyoo and the yun eye in them. I loved every character and actor..

    Moral of the story is – even then, while watching coffee prince.. the reticent, sexy japanese cook was my main eye candy.. and the one i got most interested in 🙂

    Is there anyone else?

    There’s a button on the scarf, which was the saving grace for that excuse

Baeksang nominations are out, and while I’m happy Yeo Jin Goo got a best actor nomination, I’m kinda sad they snubbed Yeo Jin Goo. 🙁

    he is so adorable (i am really begging god here that it is not another case of a demented perosnality behind the screens).. but with coffee prince, radio star and other variety experiences, i’d expect him to be a cocky guy (i mean comeone he knows he is god level handsome and specially in Korea) .. but he is such a hard working kid

      I know what you mean. I never like to watch too much of an actor outside the drama. Watching behind the scenes is probably the most I’d do especially when I am in love with the drama. I don’t watch variety either. But from snippets of Coffee Prince and the BTS of this show, NJH seems like a pretty shy if not awkward guy. That bit of awkwardness can easily come off as cold or aloof. But when he’s put to work, he seems to get into it immediately and it’s like that is when he’s most comfortable. I dunno but this is the impression I get.

        ya.. no i phrased it wrong.. i’d expect him to be a cocky guy.. but the variety shows show he is not.. i don’t get cold vibes from him.. but that he is a shy, introvert person.. which is so wonderful because.. well you know when you are drop dead handsome, moreover in Korea, you very well might grow up with a self of entitlement

        I pretty much could have said this exact same thing. Totally agree

To the writers of Dazzling: It was clear from the beginning you were going to tell whatever story you wanted to tell, genre and expectations and conventions be damned. That’s so much of what I loved about it, even when it meandered and seemed odd or disjointed. I could never have imagined the courageous story you were actually trying to give us. Ya’ll got guts. And my respect.

      We find out Hye Ja actually has Alzheimer’s, and the drama is an imagined mix of her current life as an old woman, and her sad life as her younger self.

          We’re not exactly sure, yet, since there are two episodes to go. We know she was in many of the places she thought she was, but that the current NJH character is some imagined form of her doctor mixed with her dead husband (it’s as heartbreaking as it sounds). Interactions with people in the senior center she visited, and her immediate family are most likely all real. (She imagined her son and daughter in law were her parents, though, and that her grandson was her brother.) We are all eagerly awaiting more details!

I kept wanting her to save him. But I love it more, that just like she told him in the very beginning, he just needed to be more generous with himself. #Dazzling

    I loved them. And this scene. And this drama.

    I love that it’s so much more than a romance. I love that their connection is grounded in hope. I love that he found that he didn’t need someone to save him, but in being there for each other, he found that he could save himself. I love that in this drama, being there for someone, being present, being kind, being a support for others, giving love, being vulnerable and being soft, waking up in the morning and facing the world even when it hurts to breathe.. I love that it’s portrayed as being strong, that is something that takes immense courage.

    It’s beautiful, and it’s real, and I love it.

      YES X 100. What I also love is that the most remarkable thing about Hye ja was that she loved and accepted herself. You see it in the young Hye ja, and then you see her find it again as a halmoni Hye ja. That was what made her so “dazzling”, and what drew Joon ha to her from the very beginning. It was this self love that allowed her to be so generous with Joon ha. In the end it was both how much she loved herself and how much she cared for him that helped him realized he could also love himself.

      Hold me, Bams.
