Name That Drama: A famous ex-boyfriend, a rainy night, and accidental friendships

 
Ready for another round of drama-sleuthing? Help out your fellow Beanies or use this form to send in your own questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.
 

  1. A rainy night

    This has been driving me crazy and I’m hoping someone will know which drama it’s from. All I remember is that the guy did something that got the girl mad him. So he waits outside her window at night hoping she’ll come down and talk to him or forgive him. I think he gets caught in the rain one night outside her window and gets sick. That’s when she finally goes to hear his explanation. I appreciate any help you can offer.

     

  2. Sticky fingers

    So I watched this drama a few years ago and I can only remember one scene from it. It’s this scene where a woman dressed in all black, with burgundy-ish hair, tries to pick pocket someone but she fails because she is caught by the either male lead or by someone else. The woman, who I think is the female lead, picks pockets to earn a living. I think it was a drama from between 2005 and 2010… I could be wrong though. Please help me figure out the show.

     

  3. A shared accident

    I can’t seem to find the title for this drama that I once saw the trailer for: Four women who are strangers are in the same traffic accident one time, and then somehow they all become friends or end up living together.

     

  4. Dirty diapers

    Help me find a 2000s drama. There’s a guy and a girl involved in one night stand resulting in her pregnancy. I don’t know if later they got married or not, but they decided to raise the baby together. One scene I remember clearly is that the girl scolded the guy for letting their baby sit on soiled diaper for hours.

     

  5. A famous ex-boyfriend

    I always participate in this (well, in my head) but finally I have a drama that I cannot remember and need help. Here is what I remember. A woman’s husband cheats on her and she then finds a job working as a housekeeper for a celebrity. The celebrity is actually an old boyfriend. This drama is not too old but I couldn’t find it even with all the Google searches I have done, I need the professionals to step in.

     

Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!

That was my first thought too! And Lee Jong Seok looks like a celebrity no matter what role he's playing so... I see why there might be some confusion there.

#4 sounds like something that could have happened in Wonderful Life with Eugene and Kim Jae-won.

#5 could be Oh My Lady with Chae Rim who really really needs to come back to dramaland

I think 5th is not Oh my Lady but last scandal of my life. Oh my lady was similar except the Ex-boyfriend part.

Could number 4 be A Wonderful Life? That's the only drama I remember where the leads has a baby after a one night stand?
Number 2- I think it could be The Swindlers, it's a korean movie.
Or potentially the kdrama Secret Garden? The FL chases down a pickpocket in the first episode.

2 Yoona Street?

Yup. I think #2 is Yoo-na's Street too. Or Steal Heart according to wiki. Starring Kim Ok Bin as the pick pocketed and Lee Hee Joon as the nice guy.

Fun fact: The two leads dated IRL but have broken up already.

#2 Yoona Street was what popped into mind too for drama about pick pockets. That was an enjoyable drama!

#1 sounds like the awful awful Chinese drama Well Intended Love; just another in the male lead's manipulations.

Now that you mention it, I can picture the scene in my head. What a mess of a drama 🤡

I thought the last one is Romance is a Bonus Book though ML is a big name author and FL became his housekeeper without him knowing about it (at first).

This is what I thought of first too! But technically, ML is not an ex boyfriend, he's "just a friend", in true drama fashion... So I'm not sure

#1 - I remember something like this in Just Between Lovers / Rain or Shine, but I'm not sure if is exactly the same. Other JBL fans should be able to verify?

It does sound like JBL.

Sounds like it but there was no rain in JBL, he just passed out because he was legit sick.

For #1- there is also a similar scene in The Undateables (altho the ML is sitting in the rain on a bench outside the FL house, I think)

Oops, never mind, someone already said that.

#1 sounds like a lot of dramas.

They are always feeling apologetic in the rain and getting a fever.

my thoughts exactly! funny thing is - getting wet in the rain causing a fever is such an asian thing...

when my daughter was in a co-op preschool at the age of 2, another little girl whose mother is a physician told me "you don't catch a cold from the rain, you catch a cold from a virus" when i told my daughter to go back inside to get her jacket (so she won't catch a cold) because it had started to rain while they were playing outside...

i LAUGHED OUT LOUD when i started watching Kdramas and almost every drama had someone waiting out in the rain, then getting a fever and having their hot foreheads cooled with a wet towel...

I don't know, I always get quite sick whenever I get too cold... and standing in rain would probably get me quite cold (it's enough if I don't wrap myself well during an open-air evening concert).

ha ha.. literally every asian drama ever in every language has that scene of ML waiting in rain for FL to cool down and accept his apology..

pity works, i guess! :P

asians (parents, mostly) use the guilt card often...

There seems to be a lot of shows that fit the description for #1 but the one I thought it might be is a Japanese drama called This Guy Is The Biggest Mistake Of My Life.

I was thinking the same, that #1 is Kono Otoko wa Jinsei... (Though, as Mary mentioned, it can be a scene from many dramas 😁 )

I submitted one of these weeks ago - I’m really sad they’ve apparently decided not to include it.

It was a drama I saw half of at least 10 years ago. The drama was already considered old then - I’d place it as late 90s or very early 2000s.

There was the ML who worked as a show designer, and the 2nd female lead somehow stole her designs and/or stole credit for then. I think the sister might have been a cousin/sister/stepsister or something.

Any help? It was available for download and it had dvd or fansubs, but the subs weren’t properly synced and I didn’t know how to fix them so I stoped watching

An old show about designers which was also popular does ring a bell. I didn't watch that one but I did remember there was a popular show about those things like MANY years ago. Hopefully some Beanies know something about this.

It sounds familiar though not one I've watched. Could it be A Star in My Heart?
