Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 7-8 Open Thread

Just when you thought it was safe to get back on the piano bench, our drama chucks us yet another twist. Say what! Do Do Sol Sol might be full of sweetness and silly, but it’s not afraid to throw curveballs either — and they’re becoming a fun balance to the cuteness, humor, and romance. Yesss, romance.

 
EPISODES 7-8 WEECAP

Last week’s cliffhanger felt like it was more about the Joon high school reveal, but really, it was supposed to be about Lala and her first meeting with Dodosolsollalasol. The number of fake-outs during this scene were epic — once one was over, the next one was lined up. So funny!

The man we’ve confirmed as her stalker turns up, and he seems to be the secret benefactor… but then denies it just when Dr. Cha shows up looking like he also has a secret to blurt out. But nothing is confirmed. Identity still unknown. Benefactor and stalker on the loose.

After this disappointment, Lala, Ha-young, and her mother all hang over Lala’s phone, waiting to hear why Dodosolsollalasol couldn’t make the meeting. Even though they’re relieved he’s okay, Lala keeps harping on his identity and soon has her own little eureka moment where she matches up the writing style in the Byeolgram (A.K.A. “Stargram” haha) comments with the message that Dr. Cha wrote on her congratulatory bouquet. Lala is convinced Dodosolsollalasol is Dr. Cha, and Joon is (rightly) horrified. Their level of squabbling around semantics and grammar here is amazing, and I laughed out loud when Joon purposefully used the same sentence construction in his texts to prove she’s wrong.

Aw Joon, he wants to confess to Lala sooooo bad this week, and even consults Ha-young’s film-making friend LEE SEUNG-KI (Yoon Jong-bin, I lervvvv him) for advice: should he tell his secret first, or confess first? All Joon manages through Episode 7, though, is a bunch of false starts, but I love that we can see this change in him from flustered puppy, to a guy who’s ready to put his “burning” heart out there.

While we’re on the topic of confessions, Dr. Cha wastes no time this week, grabbing Lala’s hand and announcing his feelings for her… or trying to. Lala’s epic and anticipatory turn-down of Dr. Cha was wonderful. Gosh, up until this moment I was still lying to myself that he wasn’t interested in her romantically. Now, I have to face the music — but how great was her rejection?

I love Lala so much; she’s so genuine and warm. Just like with Dr. Cha, she’s more than transparent about her feelings (here, a flat-out no thank you), but she’s also completely kind about it. And there’s a difference between being apologetic and kind, and Lala is the latter.

Lala’s good-naturedness also turns up this week when we hear how uncompetitive she was after always placing as a runner-up in piano competitions. Rather than be hostile towards the person that always won, Lala tells Joon how that pianist was marvelous and deserved to win. She’s just herself, and she’s okay with that. How refreshing, right?

In fact, kindness and goodwill as themes in this drama really stood out to me this week. I loved where our story went with our little child prodigy Jae-min and how everyone took him under their wings, fed him, and supported him. Sook-kyung getting touched by his hunger was another sweet moment, and overall, I was left with a notion of what’s so special about this story: the characters in this drama just go around conspiring to do good.

Joon is our best example of this, possibly, since his every thought is how to make Lala happy, whether he’s making her a “hot” salad, buying her a fan, or pretending to be her husband when the situation calls for it (I almost did a spit-take when he announced this!).

Joon’s endless consideration for Lala is as touching as it is adorable — and though we’re all too ready to write it off as a puppy crush (now that we know his age), I think he actually brings a lot of maturity to the table as well. He’s remarkably clear-headed and resourceful, and in his confession scene (melt me) he also shows his emotional intelligence as well.

I was bound to love any confession scene Joon was able to squeeze out, as well as any first kiss scenario, but I was delighted by our sunset cable car confession and kiss. Not only was the scene so perfect, but I loved what Joon chose to say to her: “My days were dark, but then one day joy came to me. And that was you.” How can it get better than that? (Also, what a nice parallel that he responded to the joy she brought him by conspiring to bring her joy too, and in the shape that she determined — face cream, leafy greens, piano students, etc).

This happy moment is hanging in the atmosphere at the end of this week’s episodes, but meanwhile all the conflict is also escalating, and we actually have a lot of it to get through in our drama’s second half. The thug that’s been hunting down Joon has finally put 2 + 2+ 3 together and located Joon at Lala Land. Also, our potential SNS stalker seems to be letting his creepy side out a bit. Red herring or actual threat? I’m not sure yet.

On the brighter side, who is Lala’s secret benefactor? It doesn’t seem like it’s the stalker, and it doesn’t even seem like Dr. Cha sometimes (even though I love Lala’s logic). I had a thought this week that it might even be harabeoji — since we get some minor but telling details about him learning how to use a smartphone. Ack, I love Joon teaching the neighborhood halbaes how to use their phones. This boy is a keeper.

Our epilogue, though, is where our major twist lies, and the hints we got were confirmed: Joon’s best friend was super into Lala, and even took a photo with her after her graduation recital. We see them posing for photos and then the camera backs up and we see that Joon was taking them. AH! I’m confused what this actually means for us (or Lala, since I’m convinced she won’t mind any of Joon’s secrets) — but hey, it was a good reveal.

Now what? I have no idea. But one thing I do know is no matter how many reveals this drama floats, Do Do Sol Sol is my weekly happy pill. There’s something comforting about watching these characters and all their silliness — and there’s also something equally comforting about how the story confronts sadness, tragedy, and danger: with optimism, cheerfulness, cookies, and doorbells in the wall to make visiting your neighbors just a little bit easier.

I guess the heartbreak is coming soon, but I hope that like in Louie, the show can stay cute even when our leads separation comes. And what is the deal with that stalker dude? So far his evilness seems a bit childish, like when he put glue on the door handle, but he might become more dangerous. I think DoDoSolSolLaLaSol is the old man and not Dr Cha.

Unlike the Phoenix remake, the original had less number of episodes (16-episodes something). But the remake will end in 2021 with the greatest number of episodes.

Exactly my thought, when the early episodes are so sweet to the point where it melts your heart, THATS MEANS a terrible heartache is waiting for a of us and just the thought of joon and rara crying their eyes out is giving me anxiety.
And the stalker is soo creepy and dengerous if he wouldnt mind hurting a kid.
And one of characters thats on my mind is, joons dad. I feel like everything eill kinda work out for joon if dad acts even a bit like a father but i donno if he will as he fell like a freaking wall of no emotions

Strictly Lee Jae-wook: That was the most heartfelt confession and sweet first kiss. I love the look on his face when he decided to get up and sit on her side and how he outstretched his hand and she was the one to intertwine her fingers with his.

Alas, Joon is a 12th grader and lying to Ra-ra.

I love Seung-gi and Ha-young's "song" Sung Si-kyung's The Road To Me.

A few thoughts on this weeks episoeds
This drama make me so happy. I agree that Ra Ra is just an overall truly good person. She seems the type to never put anyone down, and would always find goodness in anyone or anything. I think that she that trait from her Father. From the beginning she seemed to always support her and that upbringing influenced her. I also think that her open ( I don't think she is capable of lying) and joyful personality makes her quite perceptive. She was not clueless about Dr. Cha, as evidence in the way she knew he was going to confess and turned him down. That had to be one of the nicest rejections ever. I also believe she won't mind Jun's age secret. I think she will be shocked and first, but completely understand his situation and be accepting once he explains.
I just want to mention her Stalker. His reactions when she wanted more students was chilling.(also last weeks slamming of door anyone?) And as the preview hinted at, I am scared for the little boy. Stalker seems like he will do anything to keep her for himself not to mention all the pictures he has taken off her social media. I wonder if he was at her concert as well, and if he moved to the city before or after her.
Lastly, that kiss was also very swoon worthy. such a lovely setting for it. I found it really cute that he asked for a date as his reward for practicing.

I loved the contrast between how Dr.Cha just grabbed onto Ra-ra's hand, but Joon opened his hand, palm up, and had let Ra-ra decide whether she would take his hand or not. I'm glad that Ra-ra rejected Dr.Cha so clearly and quirkycase is right about how she handled that. She was kind rather than apologetic and that had really smoothed over the potential awkwardness.

I want to take a look at Joon's mom's purse. How many white envelopes of money does she have? She even tips with a white envelope! Joon's dad is a piece of work. I hope she gets a divorce and becomes part of the Wishing-for-Divorce club. I'm really hoping the head henchman will be one of Ra-ra's students. They're hilarious the two times they've interacted.

I also suspect Harabeoji as dodosolsolalasol. But it was hilarious how Ra-ra thought it was Dr.Cha. I was totally on board with her deduction, until she explained it to Joon, who was not impressed. Then I realized how silly it was! And was relieved it wasn't Dr.Cha.

It is also a stark contrast for me seeing how dr.Cha forcefully grabbed Ra-ra’s hand in the cinema, and how later on Jun and Ra-ra just grabbed hands so comfortably and ran away from the cinema together. The show did well in that scene to show the viewers how Ra-ra feels about each relationship.

I love this show. The not-so-grumpy-puppy is so adorable and I can’t with these two!!
I love the leads and the wonderful people that they are. I thought his age reveal will affect my enjoyment of the show but it doesn’t. There is a wonderful childlike quality to Lala and a mature vibe to Joon that somehow it feels like they are perfect for each other.

I am so glad Dr.Cha love triangle ended now. It was really awkward and unpleasant.

Watching Joon while eating is my new favorite pastime 🥰

The high schooler part was obviously a shock for me. But later on, the level of maturity joon reflects unlike many other actual adults sold me. He is so warm and mature and supports rara on all her new ventures that it melts my heart. And rara who is so kind and positive that in joons own words, she was a joy in joons depressed life. They are soo good for each other.
And on another note, i have noticed this trend in MLs recently, the calm, mature and the suppotive kinda ML are kinda popular. Unlike back in a day , where the ML trend was the bad guy who literally makes the FLs life miserable coz he secretly likes her. And i have to say, the recent MLs are a million times better than the bad-boy-but-supposedly-nice MLs.

I totally agree with you in regard to male leads right now... there are billion light years between guys like Lee Min ho in «Boys over flower», or Eric in «Qué será será» and let's say Nam Joo hyunk in WLFKBJ, or Kim Ji suk in 20th century boy and girl, or Park Hyung shik in SWDBS, or Jang Se jong in 30 but 17, or more recently beautiful Kim Min jae in DYLB?.... all of them imperfect, but nice and gentlemen... I am excited about Korean writers learning to write decent male leads who are also decent human beings!
The best of them: Lee Sun guyng in My Ajusshi, of course😅

I totally agree with every ML role you mentioned my friend, especially lee minho in boys over flowers, i hate his role of ju jun pyo with passion who hate the girl enough to bully her, later gets jealous, later gets over possessive of her and i could go on and on. And the fact that some ppl love BOF is so sad, it gives the feeling that no matter how hard and miserable a guy makes your life, its all fine as long as he "loves" you. That right there, my friend is the definition of a toxic relationship.
I just hope there will be more dramas with MLs like joon, just a calm and patient guy who loves and encourages his girl with all his heart.

Well, my therapist says boys over flower is a modern depiction of the tale the beauty and the beast.
Nevertheless... I can't stand it. Such bullying behavior is not love, or in any case, as you said, it is a toxic relationship.
I really hate ML who grab the wrist and force the girl to go here and there and even to kiss them, when they don't want to... by the way, thinking about same Lee min ho but in Heirs... 😒
What can I say???
It makes no sense, but those dramas have their fans 😂

Oh wow, you have a therapist who also watches Kdrama and discusses it with you? How cool is that 😂

Woww you have a therapist with whom you can talk abt kdrama, thats the perfect combo!!!
And i feel like lee min ho and his BOF drama got too popular that he only takes up drama where the ML is secretly rich, and a bad boy who is secretly nice. I mean i understand his fans like that kinda roles but wheres the diversity as an actor in his roles. The actor that comes to my mind for the diversity of his roles as a ML is kimsoohyun, his role in my love from another star or the producers or its ok to not be okay are all very different that its a joy to watch his dramas.

I too agree and couldn’t stand the behaviours of the MLs in BOF and also Jealousy Incarnate, another good example, that I just had to drop them.

Yes, well... my therapist was first my friend, we became close while studying in college (me linguistics and she psychology), and she was the one who introduce me to Korean dramas, precisely with BOF in 2012, which after I kinda watched, then lost interest in Korean dramas, because hello... you know what we are talking about😂, and it took me another two or three years to go and watch other dramas and find out male leads were better than Lee Min ho...
And yes, now she is my therapist, since 2018, and once in a while, when we are in "chingu" modus, we talk about respective dramas we are watching.
I would say more than half of the time we have very different taste in dramas, like... she really loves "you are beautiful", and "moon lovers", while I am more a typical Lee Jeong suk's Fan, like I hear your voice, pinnocchio (these kind of dramas).
But her ultimate favourite actress is Lee Ji eun and my favorite ultimate best drama ever is "My Ajusshi", so there you go... at the end we understand each other.

But anyway, because she is a psychologist, she sees in dramas more than what we see, and many times that's why she finds some toxic dramas or relationships in dramas rather appealing... 😆😒😆
I am more like analysing the writing, the dialogs and the evolution of the plot and story, and I enjoy mostly my non violent, non creepy, non politic types of drama. 🤓
Sorry my answer is too long😂

Aniyaa its ok if your message is long, its fin to read 😊. Its great that you have a kdrama friend even if you both see dramas a bit differently. It makes you realise how differently different people see a drama. For me, i have been a solo kdrama-watcher for more than 10 years😢 but its still fun. And as you can guess it, my first drama was BOF too, and i thought it was ok at that time (ik i was crazy seriously lol) now i know the reality.
And for me, i like calm ML leads with a great plot thats not creepy or horror lol. And I'm the kinda person who dont go crazy for drama if the story aint good enough even if it stars my fav actor. A couple of my favourite dramas are, lee jong suk's romance is a bonus book (his favv role till date for me), my love from another star (kim soo hyun, the guy whose crying scenes make me sob like a mess), the tale of nokdu (jang dong yoon was PERFECT for that role and the only histroical drama i liked in a LONG time and currently watching ocn's search and my brain cant process the fact that its the same guy ), hotel del luna (everything was perfect) and so on.

You are not a solo watcher, @bluemoon123. You have us! 😆😅😍😍😛😜😊😊😊
And yes, we know better.
I also love Kim Soo hyun.
Romance is a bonus book is also a very good drama. I liked it.
Since you like so much a calm ML, I recommend you to watch Into the Ring. Park Sung hoon was gold in there. It is also hilarious.

Okay i wanted to tell you about Into the ring drama, i finished that drama in 2 days and their chemistry was GOLD😍. Her explosive character paired with his calm and mature character was a match made in heaven😍 and also for someone like me who hates political dramas, i surprisingly loved it. And i miss them sometimes and go watch the clips again lolol. It was a great recommendation, thnxx🤗🤗

Ohhh, I love you liked it so much!
And yes! For me it's a rewatch. I found super funny she even punched him several times at the beginning of the relationship and said he was not her style, but they fell for each other anyway 😂
And then, because she was so strong, she became protective of him, so cute!!!😍
It was such a lovely relationship.
And overall the drama was ok.
The only thing I got upset and really upset is that she worked as a representative for a year for free, because the city never paid her😡

1

Ikr, their relationship was soo cutee it makes me melt😍 and they looked soo natural and totally in love, the actors just did so well in the roles.
And about not getting paid even though she worked well for a year, well politics for you my dear😑. And the fact that the guys father used him and his dead bro for sympathy, it felt unreal UNTIL he happnened in my area, where there was a state election and the leading guy kept using his son and wifes names who passed away, then it kicked it about how the drama was a reality check.

Yes, @bluemoon123. I know politicians would even sell their own mothers, in order to gain their power.
Awful, but what can we do??
Just not believe in them an fall into their traps.

Thank you @missvictrix. These were two sweet episodes. One thing that interests me is how did Joon grow up to be this, yes mature, but probably more important caring and considerate young man. He had to pick it up somewhere and from what we know (as of now) of his parents it doesn’t look like it came from them.
(Joon reminds me a little bit of Joon-young (Seo Kang-joon) in THE THIRD CHARM who came from a toxic home environment but grew into a caring adult.)
This young man can do just about anything he sets his mind on. He will be the perfect son-in-law. Lol only it won’t be to Sook-kyung.

I am not worried about the age reveal because I feel writer-nim has things in control.
One area where I think Joon is now ‘letting his hair down’ and being his age if you will is when he and Seung-ki are together. (Yes I agree with Miss Victrix. Yoon Jong-bin is giving a wonderful performance.)
Seung-ki from the beginning has treated Joon as an equal notwithstanding the supposed age difference. There maybe something subconscious going on here. Anyway Seung-ki felt confident to give Joon advice in matters of love and as we see in the fourth pic above Joon felt comfortable asking advice of this supposedly younger guy. Seung-ki is becoming Joon’s ‘guy’ pal.

There are two possible reasons for Jun's kind and even empathic character. First is that it is in part a reaction to his parents: Both a conscious desire to live differently from what he sees them doing and, subconsciously, as a form of adolescent rebellion.

But probably the more important reason is much sadder: His friend's death. We hear a lot about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder but there are studies (usually of groups of people who have gone through a major disaster together) which have noted an opposite phenomenon called Post Traumatic Growth. These are people who quite literally become better people - often kinder, more empathic and more open and less selfish- as a result of the experience. This appears to happen twice as often as the cases of PTSD. I do not know if our writer was aware of this or not but this seems to be what has happened to Jun. It explains why he is a great deal more mature than the normal high school senior- in fact more mature than a man ten years older might be. And, if this is the case- that Jun has a real maturity far beyond what is normal at his age- then it renders the age gap meaningless.

Thanks @missvictrix for such a beautiful recap. You put words there nicely and I can’t write a better version myself.

In all, the show is comforting and inspires people to be kind towards the others. I love that you pointed out that the show isn’t just silliness, it has a clever way to inspire people to face life’s most tragical situations wonderfully. And that’s what is important, isn’t it?

Even when something bad happens, it’s nice to know that we can still be happy and all. Look at Ra-ra for example, she is doing well given her most tragic situation (orphan, poor, has no stable income). Dr.Cha has abandoned everything a ‘sane’ person wouldn’t have, and he became much happier with how he’s doing now compared to the ‘normal’ life he once had. The ajummas at the hairdressers shop are pretty hilarious too; they all want a divorce but can’t get one. Ha Yeong’s boy friend (haha) is also supportive and heartwarming. He is there for her body and soul even she rejected him so many times.

Everyone has problems in this drama, but it’s how they cope with the situation that makes it especially unique. The goodwill is all around and let us know that there is light at the end of every tunnel. That’s what I love about this one.

My two fav scenes in this episode are: the first one when dr.Cha trying to swallow his pills his facial expressions are gold; and the second one when Ra-ra tries to explain to Jun her deduction that mr.Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is dr.Cha. That is also gold!

Late but not least, Jun professed love in the most loving way possible in my opinion. I loved that he explained to her the way he felt for her and allowed her to take in his words before offering her his hand. There is no rush and anxiety in his confession as everything went naturally.

Joon has been the man with a plan. Every time a situation comes up, he finds a solution. Even though Mom is about to find him, even if she has him kidnapped and brought home by force to his horrible father, I know he'll figure something out. Even if he has to entrust Ra-ra to Grandpa for awhile, he'll find a way to be with her again soon.

Creepy stalker guy bothers me much more than Joon's parents and the thugs. I wish he'd fond his way into some other drama. And leave our piano prodigy alone!

I am also relieved that we got rid of the "love triangle" and RaRa rejecting Dr Cha's confession swiftly and effectively. Now off to just the tiniest bit of angst and separation (chaebal!) and a small time jump, so we can all go back to enjoy their romance fully.
I love Jun's confidence in the confession scene. He is a thoughtful man with a plan, indeed.

@missvictrix, thanks for this wonderfully written and observed recap! You capture everything so well.

This drama is love and kindness can heal. It continues to be my happy pill. Lala is my fav romcom girl this year, together with Go Sera of Into the Ring. I also wonder where Joon gets his brain and heart with such terrible parents.

Two more days....

Thank you as always @missvictrix!

I have said this again and again that this show is my happy pill rn. I'm even loving the TWD even if their appearance doesn't make sense sometimes. How cute was that scene when they were cooking and Lala was playing the piano?

And well now I kinda understand why Jun doesn't wanna go home. With the kind of parents he has. Is he adopted? Why is the apple so far from the tree?

Anyway, our OTP is now official and it was such a cute confession. Nothing grand, not angsty. Just them being them on a cable car.

Looking forward for the next episodes. 💗

I love this show, I love the chemistry and the dynamic between all the characters (except creepy stalker and jun's parents, how did he become such an angel with parents like that ? -_-).
But I hope we'll see more characters development from Ra Ra, the confession was cute but Ra Ra remains the "receiver" in the relationship for me and Jun is always the "giver", "caretaker" ...

I am afraid of how how Jun's Mom will react to Ra Ra, she was already condescendant because Ra Ra is peniless and to the kind Grandpa, but she is really going to explode if she learns that Jun is crazy in love with Ra Ra ...

Please show get rid of the Creepy Stalker/photograph/student of Ra Ra

Great recap! Yes, the show is a happy pill for me too. I love how the show is going so far and the confession was nicely done by our Joon. I fear that there would be a time-jump at the end considering Joon's age. If that happens, I hope it is beautifully done.

It is so good to see how Lala handled Dr's confession. To often we see women of innocence and purity to kind to clearly speak their hearts and then suffer the consequences. I was thrilled too see that innocence does not equal stupidity in this one!

Everything that warming my hear in this drama just makes me cry.

That epilogue though!
Why Joon best friend not wearing school uniform while Joon does?
Rara seems not remember Joon but Joon remember her, that's why he's stunned when saw Rara in wedding dress.
Could be that Joon best friend always likes Rara so Joon knows a loot about Rara and makes him fall in love with her even way before they met in the wedding day
