Even Dramabeans is indecisive about the male lead in APAD: The Fav is near Dr Ye face, and the “My Shows” on my profile shows just Min Ho’s face XD
So, is a draw, isn’t it? XD (Or DB is on neutral XD)

    1. They are one of the best OTPs ever and Bok-joo is one of the best drama heroines ever and Joon-hyung is 100% boyfriend material and one of the best male leads ever

    2. I always mean to tell you this but I love your profile pic so mich, it makes me ridiculously happy whenever I see it

      1- You are totally right ❤ They were awesome individually and together they were “SWAG!!!” ❤❤ And their ending was so… perfect ❤❤ There was never noble idiocy, and both supported each other and had fun together and they were like not just lovers but best friends too and I think that is wonderful.
      2- Aww, thank you very much. I ❤ that my profile pic makes you happy; there is another of my favorites dramas where I love absolutely everyone but them will always have a special place in my heart ❤

Now I see the couple that MinHoYoung kinda makes me remember ❤ (Plus she had a crush in someone older and more mature XD)
JH❤BJ were love❤ If MinHoYoung would have this development I would be so happy

I want to say the in the whole scene with Lee Yoo Bi in the last ep I was NW and JY the whole time; they were so weirded out, and I felt like \”LOL, WUT, WHT I am watching?\” It was funny but so bizarre

    I couldn’t watch it when it was airing and just got to watch it last week…OMG, the cuteness!! I wasn’t really expecting much, to be honest, but was so pleasantly surprised!

      I watched when it was airing and it was kind tortuous sometimes expecting for the next ep. I loved, and not just the relationships of the leads (even when OMG Min Kyu and Ji Ah had so much chemistry ❤❤❤ at least for me) but every character was sympathetic and in the end everyone was just a big family ❤❤ I cannot help it, I’m a sucker for dramas where everyone end not being that bad and everyone have a happy ending (At least if they deserve it, and in this case, they all did 😀 )

        A couple of eps made me glad I hadn’t live-watched it, but at the same time I’m guessing it was a pretty fun drama to follow in DB so I feel like I missed out!
        I feel like the cast in general had fantastic chemistry, they were just such a lovely family. I was incredibly surprised when I read it’d been kind of a failure in ratings!

        4
        1

          I think that the failure in rating was, at least in part, for the premise of she being/not being a robot; to be honest I watched more because I LOVE both Yoo Seung Ho and Chae Soo Bin (especially her, I liked since Spy and I’ve watched every one of her dramas -even if some of them not complete-) but I stayed because I love their characters and their dynamics and yes, I think that they had great chemistry. And yes, it was loved for most the people that it saw it at DB so this was that too ❤

      Have you seen the BTS for the kitchen counter kiss? OMG. Almost uncomfortable to watch, they got so into it. 😂

      4
      2

        YES!!! I was partially uncomfortable because I felt like a boyeur, intruding in sometheing pretty intimate (They were SO into it, seriously) but mostly I was pretty giddy ❤❤❤ Because, d*mn guys!! That was… intense XD I was pretty sure that time after the drama would end they will come clear and say that they are dating XD
        But well, Chae Soo Bin has pretty good kissing scenes in Rebel too, and even when I didn’t liked Ruler Yoo Seung Ho wasn’t bad at kissing either XD So… Still, the BTS was great and I loved it as much as the drama in itself XD

        Againt my better judgement, I just went ahead and watched…ugh!
        I had such a hard time with Seung-ho because he’s one of those actors I’ve watched since he was a kid so when he started to grow up I was like “weird, he’s becoming a man!” and then I watched INAR, and now this BTS and it’s like “how did this puppy become a man right before my eyes??” lol

        4
        2

          Oh, I didn’t have it with him but I understand the feeling, what with seeing Yeo Jin Goo and Kim So Hyun since they were just little kids to now, it’s kind of… difficult XD (Kim Yoo Jung too, but she hasn’t got so many “adult” roles with kissing scenes and that XD)

          2
          2

            Yeo Jin-goo is still a puppy!! I don’t think I’ll be able to ever see him as an actual man…I’m 11years older than him!

            @natzillagorilla Yeo Jin-goo is only a couple years younger than me but even I see him as a baby! When he was in talks for The Great Seducer it actually made me laugh. Glad he didn’t accept that one, for multiple reasons.

    And to make it worse the last second comes a new family and when the mother calls their children to dinner the last face that you see is … DUN DUN DUN DUN… The Daughter!!! (But she has another name) So she says that she is going, looks at the camera and it end. And you stay there, watching in a state of WTF and then flips the table because God D*ammit!

    I couldn’t reply as well! A msg kept saying I was using an inappropriate word and kept deducting 1 (-1) but I didn’t type anything weird so I think it’s a glitch.

    YESSS! They always dramatised the last few moments of each moment so they can capture shocked looking faces and do that flashed over special effect. I’m just sitting there like ARGHH what is going on! Why is everyone so twisted and everything so interrelated? Flipping the table after watching a daily drama is like a national sport in my household. Everyone gets so annoyed.

      And the characters are more indecisive than Dr. Dae Bang. I mean the “Let’s be a decent person, let’s be a human trash bag” kind of dilemma is a thing, befuddling yes, but I can get it (even when they switch back and forth and you must make a chart to keep right who is doing evil thing and who is a Saint every single week) but when “OMG, I am the Master of Manipulators and the smarter evil genius that has ever being evil” to “OMG what’s is 2+2… is the answer 23?… Joking I know that the answer is Rain” Like WUT? It’s just not a question of how no one see the obvious evil person that the he/she (most probably she, because that’s how must drama roll) is, the question is how does survives the everyday life when the character is SO dumb.
      And everyone when is not batshit crazy will have the personality of a wet paper. It’s fact XD

      1
      1

        You summarize it perfectly! Like I get so confused when they keep switching sides because they actually have a 10000068 step plan that requires a lot of manipulations, deals and side stories. The annoying thing is that the viewers don’t get to see the craftiness from the 3rd view and appreciate the planning, NAH we’re just dumped with all the angst and then in the last few eps are told it’s all part of the grand plan and that the ending will be good. Except the ending is too sweet, wrapped up in bows of forgiveness eg.amnesia, sudden character turn-around etc.

        Your right about the personalities, such of the characters are so woefully limp and underdeveloped, they serve no purpose but legit furniture (Eg. Gook Du in SWDBS, he had so much potential but remained 2-D throughout). Also dramas always make the girl 2nd lead so crazy/scheming and out of the world that I’m just like now you’re practically forcing me to despise her with all this out-of-the-world unnaturalness. *shakes head*

        Also, I love how we’re having this random discussion that sprung from noble idiocy! Interacting with other beanies is so fun! 😊

          Right? I mean, discussing and poking fun at things that I begrudgingly love is one of my favorite things.
          Everything that you say is so in point; one of the things that I love of new dramas is that, even if not a lot you would find Second Lead Ladies that aren’t really hateful (even if is not something as common as should be). Ex: Ri El in “I’m not a Robot” o Soo Ah in Waikiki.
          And sometimes you would find the very few rarier species of k-drama seconds leads female that are in love with the hero AND aren’t the personification of evil (Shocking, I know!!! See, Drama Gods, you can make one lady in love with someone that isn’t in love with her AND don’t make her a total psycho) Ex: Shi Ho in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.
          Sometimes they are very hateful but given that everyones hates them I start to love them just to spite the drama (that and most times the heroine kinda gets on my last nerve… Is so difficult to make a drama with two sympathetic -if sometimes very flawed- leading ladies) Ex. Rachel in The Heirs.

          1
          1

            I’m all for Second lead ladies not being obsessive, crazy, manipulative or hateful because it’s not healthy and doesn’t occur as frequently in real life as in dramas. Adding to your examples: the lady from BTIOFL who went so far as getting the two leads together by giving love advice to them. She’d already moved on and so was in a happy place. Soo Ah did this too in Woohoo Waikik. Sure, initially she was self- centred but she was never hateful and she eventually grew more open.

            I’m so glad Shi Ho’s story was resolved without any additional drama and Weightlifting Fairy remains an amazing drama to be cherished. They took such a simple story but made it so natural, organic and GRAND that I fell in love. Definitely one of the bests – I preferred it 100 times more than SWDBS because the friends trio (SWAG!) was amazing, parental relationships were spot on and the theme of chasing dreams were executed perfectly.

            I agree with your last point – it may to do with writiers following the same generic tropes tho since I’m starying to see diversity in the story lines who knows maybe it’ll happy. I was so happy to start my 2018 with my first drama- Misty, that featured a morally grey, complex , unlovable- lovable female lead because I was so used to seeing candy heroines (with some exceptions eg Lee Yuri in Father is Strange who was a confident badass). So the fact that now there are more diverse stories are getting me really excited!

    @fencejumper (Again I could not reply to your last comment so I do there XD). Yes, I mean, most dramas would make you believe that every other female that is not the lead is a she devil that hates her either because they like the same person and that person likes the lead or for another contrived reason (I mean, in a lot of this cases, I suppose that I could be a bit upset and very befuddled if the guy that I like/love/am obsessed with falls for someone that is more boring that what white paint dry but I would be like “Whatever, your loss” and not waste my time on them).
    I loved the SFL in BTIOFL, she was wonderful and one of my favorites character. I kinda never forgave Se Hee’s family for treating her like they did, but I’m glad that she had move on because she deserved everything good for being awesome ❤❤❤.
    WFKBJ was a very underrated (in Korea) gem. I loved it so much, and I liked every single character so much; the friendships were awesome, the families were great (the only one that was not was Joon Hyung’s biological mother, but she served her purpose: show that he had a precious family and loving girlfriend that loved him a lot), the SFL was a very nice, if somewhat flawed, girl that had a lot of pressure on her shoulders to be successful and, for the 99% of time was nothing but polite and friendly to Bok Joo and the leads were asajdlsad ❤❤❤ (Sorry, my brain kinda were overdrive… I love this couple sooo much)
    Besides, another thing that I loved was that Joon Hyung was always kind and a good friend, but firm in the fact that he didn’t like her anymore, to Ji Ho, most leads either treat the Second Female Lady like trash or are wishy washy with them that you don’t know if they really love the female lead and both of the extremes makes me feel uncomfortable.
    Joon Hyung was a sweetheart and Bok Joo was very relatable and their relationship was one of my favorite OTP’s.
    I was very disappointed in SWDBS; I couldn’t watch more than a episode because I disliked pretty much everything about it, even when I loved the cast… so I’m probably not the best to talk about the drama XD (Probably is because I had so high expectations even months that it began and had such a similar premise to WFKBJ and when it did… yep, not my cup of tea XD). I mean, I’ve looked videos about Min Hyuk and Bong Soon because everyone was saying that they had really intense chemistry and they are very cute, yes (I mean Park Bo Young is impossibly cute and Park Hyun Shik is really handsome so… XD) probably the only reason that I don’t swoon about them is because I didn’t see the drama beyond the first ep (and I didn’t like Bong Soon very much).
    Soo Ah is love, Soo Ah is life ❤❤❤ I adore her ❤ (Well, I love everyone on Waikiki but she was such a wonderful surprise… I never hated her but I never thought at the start of the drama that I would love her so much). Continue below

      The first sympathetic Second Female Lead in a Korean drama that I saw was Lee Min Jung in Boys over Flowers but she was sympathetic in every adaptation so… (Well, besides I shipped Jan Di with Ji Ho and I thought that she made a really good couple with Joon Pyo, so that probably helped too XD)
      I’ve heard a lot of praise to Misty yes, and I hope that the trend of making multifacetic leading ladies continue… However, I hope that they have a happier ending that her, even when I didn’t watch the drama her ending seem so sad.

To be completely honest I\’m not sure which couple will be the endgame in APAD, both have a lot of good reasons to be, but like a MinHoYoung shipper I will give my reasons to ship it.

Continue below:

14
12

    Relativaly unbiased:

    1- They have history: Sure, not a nice one, but history nonetheless.
    A shared history serves to show a few things: their kind of bond that they had in the past, how they end up like they are, but sometimes it serves to show how not make the same mistakes again and grow up. And this point is what I see most potential whith those two because both of them need to…

    2-…Grow: Yes, both of them. Min Ho particulary but Bo Young needs to grow up. Meanwhile I think that Min Ho faults are obvious (and named a lot the times alredy), Bo Young is not perfect either (Yes, Iuff her, but I’m being unbiased right now -mostly, I mean, this is still at he end of the day reason why I ship them). And what better than to they grow together? Bo Young is the first to call out Min Ho when he is messing around and she isn’t trying to live it up to a imaginary image that he might have of her (not anymore). With Min Ho, she is just herself (and I think that maybe this is what I love more of them)

    3- Their Dynamic: They have gone through a lot of changes in their dynanimic, haven’t they? And it’s been just six episodes.
    Min Ho has gone from object of affection, to someone that Bo Young kinda despises, to coworker that she doesn’t want to have annything to do with, to kinda-of-frenemies to a (mostly) good friend that she bickers with a lot.
    The case with what meant Bo Young to Min Ho is more complex because we don’t know if he had feelings for her in the past or not, but let’s take his word at face value and say that he actually didn’t (something that I’m not sure)
    To Min Ho, Bo Young goes from a friendly girl that is overly nice to him, to someone that has feelings for him that he reject and she attacked him for that (kind of), to someone that he’s indiferent/disdainful towards, to someone that he begrudginly respect, to someone that he likes to be around, to someone that he actually likes.
    (Maybe I skiped something, but I think that this is more or less the heart of the matter)
    Besides, they are equals, I mean she is his superior in the job (Yay! They are so few times that the woman is the one on the position with more power) but outside of that, they are most on the same level, Min Ho have quite childish antics, yes, but Bo Young can be quite excentric too (I love them so much <3)

    Totally biased reasons:

    1- I'm not really into cold or distant characters (most the times at least); yes Dr. Ye is different because he is actually nice to Bo Young but… I don't know. I'm just not into that kinda of characters usually.
    (Continue below)

    11
    4

      2- I am kinda a weird person XD I see a character being hated, I would probably go to love them a lot (at least that they rub me the wrong way too XD) This happened with Min Ho, I saw a lot of hate to him, and a lot of love to Dr Ye sooo, I went and become protective of Min Ho and kinda indifferent to Dr Ye. I like him, really, and I understand why other people loves him… but when people rave about something that I don’t really care one way or another a spitefull part of me go “Do Not Want” (Yes, I’m pretty complicated) (Still, I wanna stress that I don’t hate Dr Ye, I just don’t love him either)

      3- In resumen the hearts wants what it wants and my hearts wants MinHoYoung to be cannon.

        My reason for being on the MinHoYoung ship is really simple: I prefer the way Bo Young is (today) when she’s around Min Ho, than the way she is when she’s with Dr Ye.

        From giving him a pollacking to giving him a cake, I just really like her when she’s around him.

        (Clearly this can all change! I have been known to change ships before but writer-nim will have to work hard to make that happen!)

      I love everything you wrote but especially:

      “she isn’t trying to live it up to a imaginary image that he might have of her (not anymore). With Min Ho, she is just herself (and I think that maybe this is what I love more of them)”

      With Dr. Ye she is trying to be someone she normally isn’t. She isn’t comfortable being herself with him. Also, she is seeing an idealized version of Dr. Ye based on her very vivid imagination.
      She and MinHo are comfortable being themselves with each other and are there for each other during hard times 💕

      1

      Yes to the character growth! 🙌 That’s why I’m a MinYoung shipper, it’s because they’re already affecting each other for the better. Sure they may have flaws but once they start positively influencing each other I’m all for them.

This was my very first 50 eps drama and it will always have a special place in my heart. Plus, it kinda did something new with the whole “First Love” thing on this triangle (which I loved).

      They are awesome!! They have become such good friends… and their relationship have shades of on my favorites tropes: Like a Married Couple what with the bickering but spending a lot time together.
      And the parts when they are with Sol are sooo asajdahsal (Error: Too much cuteness has overload the brain with fluffy clouds. Error)
