I’m kind of joining the My Mister rewatch. Interesting how Dong Hoon didn’t immediately turn Ji An in when he was being questioned by the auditing team regarding the bribe. He said he was almost 100% sure Ji An took the money but he didn’t turn her in. Most, if not all, people would do so immediately in hope of proving one’s innocence. Great insight into Dong Hoon’s character so early on in the drama.

    It’s so well written from the first scene. It really is.

      I watch while continously wondering how talented and insightful you have to be to write such an intricate and compelling story.

        Also all the other elements are perfect – the direction, the sound, the music, the performances. The whole tone is pitch perfect.

          Yes and while we’re on it… May I say how much I enjoy the scenes where we only see their backs while they speak? It makes their conversations seem much more intimate.

        This. I’m still waiting for Park Hae Young’s next show. In fact I also went back to rewatch OHYA to see if she has been equally introspective there too even if OHYA was covered in rom com sugar, it had its moments too. With a different director, it would’ve been quite different.

          Plus “Intricate” is THE word for it. Every small detail, every gesture, every dialogue is well observed and thought. This pd writer duo should definitely work together again.

            @wapzy I’m also waiting lol but I’m afraid My Mister may have been one of those one time gems. Of course, I’m up for being proved wrong.

          Park Hae Young was on the writing team of I Live In Cheongdam Dong which is among my all time favorites. It’s a sitcom but full of humility with each episode packed with laughters and tears in equal measure. It has a niche following but not all episodes have Eng sub that makes it less accessible for the international audience. But you should be able to search articles written by its fans.

        I wonder how many flow charts or other devices to build the intricacy. Although there’s are a few dramas touch on drama writer and their team’s works. It’d be fascinating to see one detail how they build a story up and cast the crew.

          Ooh! You just gave me an idea. In addition to the behind the scenes videos of the actors, I’d love BTS videos of the writer, director, etc and their creation process.
