Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick: Episodes 11-12 Open Thread

While our couple enjoys their blossoming romance (and so do we!), we also get to see their teamwork at play as they solve work problems and navigate office dating in the cutest ways possible. But it’s not all roses this week, as our secondary characters deal with everything from an existential crisis, to a reveal that threatens a marriage.

 
EPISODES 11-12 WEECAP

Oh, the cuteness — let’s talk about the cuteness first. It’s so refreshing for a drama to feature a couple getting together in the second half of the story… and then not showing signs of any hairline fractures that will cause a requisite penultimate week breakup.

On the contrary, Hyun-seung and Song-ah are just about as happy as two people can be, and I love the total ordinariness of the things that make them happy. Driving together to work. Getting the other person their morning coffee. Collaborating on a project, or solving a problem together at work. Or, you know, unabashedly kissing in the middle of the park.

Our couple is solid and sweet, and the actors are selling this lovely romance to me at about 200% at this point. Rowoon, especially, has been turning in such a fun, delightful performance. I hadn’t seen him in anything but Extraordinary You prior, and while I loved him there, I wasn’t expecting the nuances and fluidity he’s bringing to Hyun-seung. Each episode I’m surprised and then delighted by his goofy facial expressions, mannerisms, and all the little details that he pulls off (even when he’s not the focus of the scene).

I would gladly watch these two flirting, enjoying each other’s company, and getting caught dating at work, for the entire remainder of the drama (how much do I love the KLAR team!), but sadly not everyone is as happy as Hyun-seung and Song-ah are. Indeed, this week the more serious drama falls on our secondary storylines.

Jae-shin has reached critical mass. After the death of his father, he’s compelled to go find the mother that abandoned him (no biggie, just another fantastic cameo performance by Kim Mi-kyung). She harshly rejects him, and that seems to be the final straw for Jae-shin. He can no longer seem to keep up his false life, and he confronts Hyo-joo on her manipulation of him, turns in his resignation from KLAR, and goes MIA. I do feel for him.

Jae-shin’s rebellion against his path, his past, and the role he carved for himself is interesting, though. He’s reached rock bottom, but rather than go into villain mode, he’s ready to start over — from the bottom, as he says. And besides leaving his life behind, that also means seeking out Song-ah and apologizing for how he treated her. (How refreshing that their relationship comes full circle on this note, rather than one where he viciously tries to win her back or ruin her current relationship!)

Jae-shin’s behavior starts the chain reaction we’ve all been waiting for: when all of our characters realize just how closely intertwined they are. Ji-seung learns that her ex-client Hyo-joo is Jae-woon’s sister. And Jae-woon learns that Jae-shin and Song-ah were recently dating. Slowly, connections are being made.

Of course we can’t forget poor Yeon-seung. After weeks and weeks of hanging fire, we finally get the big reveal about her husband, KANG WOO-HYUN (Lee Dong-ha) and the chef. Of all the scenarios I was imagining, this one didn’t occur to me. The chef is indeed gay, and interested in her husband — but it seems quite unwelcomed by Woo-hyun (at least from what we’ve seen so far).

We learn the two had a brief fling of sorts during their college days, and Woo-hyun is shown wrestling with it. He’s been a giant mystery to me thus far, but this actually makes sense — if the chef is the force of unwanted affection here, it makes sense why Woo-hyun is so often shown uncomfortable around him and unable to make easy eye contact with him (or with Yeon-seung, really). The pressure he’s living under makes him as withdrawn as we’ve seen – at least, that’s how I’m reading it right now; we’ll have to see what happens when Yeon-seung and Woo-hyun finally have the serious conversation they so sorely need.

Like favorite dramas are oft to do, they whoosh by far too quickly — and that’s exactly where we are with Sunbae. With only two weeks left of the story, we’ve got precious little time left for a few knots to be tied and connections to be made. However, Sunbae never feels rushed or crammed. It takes its time, and I can only think that it will continue at this pace through the conclusion.

Our main couple is surely heading in the right direction. Song-ah has the seal of approval from the family seer, KANG HA-EUN (Park So-yi), and she’s also met Ji-seung — can’t wait for the awkward double date when they realize he’s dating their CEO!

Finally, I don’t think I can end without another mention of the swoon factor here — there’s something about the romance between Hyun-seung and Song-ah that has me feeling as swept off my feet as they are. Perhaps it’s the fact that Hyun-seung’s devotion and patience paid off, and now they’re just as happy as they can be? Or that Song-ah comes alive because she’s confident in his love and loyalty? That Hyun-seung is rewarded with the love of his life for being a genuinely nice guy? Whatever factors are contributing here, the bottom line is: I really love this couple.

In so many ways, this show captures my favorite drama experiences: leads who were not really on my radar who just kill it, check. Tender scenes we have seen many times before yet are so well done they are terrifically moving, check. Supporting cast and characters so good they could be the focus of a second show, check. Tweaks to common tropes which give just the needed amount of freshness, check. (I love how Jae-Woon is such an appealing character when he so easily could have been another spoiled, chaebol baddie.)

I started this show on a lark because I was not watching something else at the time and I am sooo glad I did. Also, Wang Bit Na, wow! Admittedly, she may be the most underwritten character and has too many scenes just looking adorably perplexed, but not having seen her in anything before...all I can say is, what a beauty!

I love how well our main leads are coming together.

I actually like what we saw with Jae-shins's character. When I saw his father get himself killed that was great karma and yet I also went "Uh Oh" because the need to deal with his rapacious father was the keel to his existence. Without a keel a ship cannot keep course and that is why Jae-shin went MIA. Being rejected by his mom hurt terribly and yet it seems to have also released Jae-shin from the last shackle on his existence. Jae-shin may not have Song-ah but what he does now have is freedom. So, yes he confronted Hyo-joo and that relationship ended. Of course having hurt her he then had to resign from the company and part ways with Jae-woon as well.

Jae-shin lived such a harsh and desperate existence that he is unusually attuned to reality. He has discovered the importance of integrity and taken charge of his life- which means starting from the bottom- but he accepts that as the natural consequence of his actions and he takes responsibility for that. How does Hyo-joo respond to Jae-shin now that he has changed? I do not believe that we have seen the end of Jae-shin or of Hyo-joo in this drama.

I feel so sorry for Yeon-seung- and for her husband too. I do not know how this can be resolved. I am a bit miffed at our gay chef for not having moved on but I also understand that it might be a lot harder than it sounds.

Our secondary romance is just precious and so is Ha-eun- who is not like either of her parents but, instead, is a younger female version of her handsome uncle but maybe smarter.

Yep, Jae Won found out his friendship was not reciprocated. But to be honest his friendship wasn't that perfect too. He asked JS to marry his sister to prevent her from taking her life. In my opinion, that doesn't show friendship either. But to be fair to him, I'm sure he wouldn't have if JS had communicated more to him about what was going on in his life like friends normally would.

He did ask him to marry his sister. But he had no idea Jae Shin was dating someone. Had he known it he wouldn’t have even suggested it.
Nothing wrong in asking a friend this who seems nice to his sister and who is emotionally distressed. Jae shin was not forced. He just did not speak up.
His realization that he was never considered a friend was quite hard to watch.

I agree. He wasn't forced but I am sure he felt pressured. I personally do think it is a lot to ask a friend to marry your sister who is so obsessed with you that she would attempt suicide. Which is why I think he is a lovely character (one of my favorites) but somewhat flawed as a friend.

I also agree that JS should have spoken up. In a normal friendship, JS would have spoken up and JW wouldn't have asked because he would know what was happening in his friend's life.

It was hard to watch the realization and I felt for him too.

It warmed my heart to see that when the shackles fell off he showed himself to be an integer person and one who has matured compared to his earlier self. Still, his past was quite traumatic. I feel he was in survival mode all of this time. Now he no longer is, it isn't surprising that he needs to process it and discover who he is in his core. And he needs time and space for that. He made good and courageous decisions for himself. It surprises me that he was this confident (and kind - sort of) given how his parents were. He could have had a worse personality.

It sometimes happen that people with awful parents become good or at least better as a result of seeing what the parents have done and the effects upon others. In effect they get a great model of what not to do. And because they themselves suffered and are resentful towards their parents this actually causes them to become better people as an actual form of rebellion. It does not make them perfect, of course and may make them relatively intolerant of the faults of others- there was some aspect of that shown in Jae-shin's break up scene with Hyo-joo- here too we see that the good side of being dedicated to integrity and truth has a bad side to it, just as Hyun-seun's protectiveness of those he loves can lead to undesirable and disconcerting behavior.

I really love when Hyun Seung and Song Ah dated with ha eun, she surely being mature beyond her age :))
but too bad her parents in crisis right now and I wonder how the writer wrap their stories in the end, but I think Yoon Seung's husband really love his family now so maybe he will cut ties with the chef.

4 more episodes left, our main OTP is still going strong! No signs they will face big problems or breakup-before-ending trope. Hyun seung just love his sunbaes too much.

*I'll give applause to Rowoon who act as Hyun Seung so well! His chemistry with Song Ah, his noonas and niece, plus his officemates are so good. Not just Hyun Seung is almost perfect character but Rowoon makes him so alive.

Even if the husband breaks ties with the chef, it doesn't take away the issue of his sexuality. Pretending he is not gay won't make either of them happier. This is why I think such a storyline needs more time because there are complicated things YS and her husband need to come to terms with and difficult decisions they need to make (which are even more complex in a conservative environment like South Korea) and that takes time.
I think this is one of the things the drama doesn't do well. It makes its sub-characters complex but doesn't develop their interesting stories well. Either make your characters simpler or limit the story to a few complex characters you develop well (my opinion).

I completely agree with Rowoon doing such a good job!! And I love Ha Eun!

Having a fling in college (we don't know the circumstances) does not make him gay. Using that logic, all gay men who've ever had a heterosexual encounter are heterosexual. At the very most, he is bisexual. Or was at that time. He clearly does values his family and his life and distances himself from any interactions with the chef, who doesn't seem to care what Wu Hyun wants.

I have yet to see any drama deal effectively with bi-sexuality, which is actually very different from either being gay or straight, as well as relatively rare. But it seems to me that it fits Wu-yun's character as an explanation because it is very obvious that he is struggling even more with his sexuality than if he were simply gay or a straight person who had a homosexual experience.

The conclusion that I drew that he is gay comes from the chef confronting him and saying he was exhibiting cowardly behavior. It could be a wrong conclusion, but that is what it looks like and I don't think I was the only one thinking this. In this drama, we have not been privy to the husband's thoughts. What we know about him we know from others or his outward behavior. The information seeping through is a lot more than the information that he had a fling in college. Whether or not he is gay, bisexual or it was just a one-time thing in college, I felt more attention should have been given to this storyline because it is still a complex issue in a conservative environment. He values his family. No doubt about that. But what does YS think about this? How does she handle this situation? From her initial reactions, it seems it is a shock to hear. She is avoiding her husband and she is not able to take care of her child. What about the chef, how does he deal with his frustration? Because if he wasn't frustrated that confrontation would not have happened. Why does he believe he still has a chance with the husband? And most of all what the heck is the husband feeling and thinking? I don't agree that he distances himself from the chef. If that were so he wouldn't meet with him at all or would have set clear boundaries in the relationship between them making it clear that it was a one-time thing. The liberties the chef has taken show (in my opinion) that that has not occurred.

Whatever happens and whatever his sexuality, I am interested to see how things develop but give it the attention and time it deserves if it is more complex.

This drama is what I was expecting from Record of Youth. I like how the scenes are not random scenes following one another with blanks between that the viewers have to fill themselves. For example, for the camping trip, they didn't stop at the kiss, we got the night, the return and why they returned so soon. As a viewer, it makes me feel I'm following normal people.

In these 2 episodes, there were so many cute/lovely/sexy scenes! Thank to the every characters. I liked the Klar team who supported Hyun-Seung with his product, Song-A with the rumors and their couple. The family scenes with Yeon-Seung who didn't insist to know more about Ji-Seung's boyfriend but she was very happy for her and brought food. Every scene with Ha-Eun was super cute! Poor little boy who will have to grow up to 1m90 to have a chance to marry her 😂 Set the bar high makes perfect sens in this case!

Hyun-Seung-Song-A couple gave us a lot of butterflies in the tummy! Hyun-Seung always was impatient but we could see he's trying, and I really like his honesty and how direct is he. It's funny how Song-A could hide 2 years of dating with Jae-Shin but didn't last very long with Hyun-Seung. She's taking initiatives in their couple too. This time, she didn't phone, she went to his appartment and the end of the episode killed me :p

It was sad to see Jae-Shin like this but very necessary for him to start over. I hope he will still see that he has a best friend. Hyo-Joo was pretty delusional, when she asked if he wanted to stop, she looked surprised by his answer when I was happy :p The fact that Jae-Shin apologized to Song-A was nice but he should have done it way before.

Oooh love this comment: "It's funny how Song-A could hide 2 years of dating with Jae-Shin but didn't last very long with Hyun-Seung." So true. So true. Maybe it's because of the nature of her boyfriends. HS is direct and honest (which I really like too just like you) and JS isn't? I love this couple and their blossoming relationship is for me the highlight of the drama ... so many butterflies.

I completely agree that Hyo Joo was delusional! When she asked if he wanted to stop, I thought "You are handing the breakup to him on a silver platter with lovely pink bows." She set herself up for this. Given how their relationship started, it needed time to mature and she was just too impatient.

I think Jae Shin resigning and removing himself from the Lee sibling’s lives is a good thing for the siblings. It will (hopefully) give Hyo Joo the space she needs to confront herself and get over her insecurities and give Jae Woo the opportunity to gain confidence in his abilities to be a good leader without his crutch.

Hyo Joo is manipulative, entitled, neurotic and pathetic. I felt bad for Jae Shin when he picked her up from the club..."is this what my life will be"? was going through his head. She doesn't evoke a lot of sympathy from me. Jae Shin, however, is deep, conflicted, and despite his upbringing, seems determined to live honorably rather now. I could enjoy a 2nd season of this!

Did Jae-Shin really apologize though? Sounded like a pseudo apology to me. First he tried to excuse himself by saying he did not mean to lie to her and that his feelings were real. Then he only said he was sorry that it ended like it did. He never said he was sorry for hurting her in the first place. Or if he said, subtitles did not catch that.

I'm glad Song-Ah greyrocked him with a blank expression and said nothing. Ignoring him was the best and most powerful move she could ever make. She does not need his fake apologies, because she has already moved on.

I have a question why is everyone all about how good fiancee is for ex-bf ??

I don't understand, all this talk about she is good for him, and that's who he needs and how she is bettering his life?? No that is selling your soul to the devil hoping to be happy and in this case he already sold it once, twice is too many...

I don't get it?? Yes arrange marriages exist but not when it comes from cohesion and manipulation... That becomes a forced marriage...

If he was my relative, I could not...

Yes, it was a forced marriage and a forced marriage is definitely a big no no. Yet if you take away the manipulation that was behind it and just look at how the two characters presented themselves earlier on in the drama, they seemed compatible. I think that is what most people (me included) saw. In order for such a compatible couple to have a chance though they would 1) need to recognize they were compatible, 2) deal with the ugliness of the manipulation and what brought it about (and allowed for it to succeed). I think they are dealing with the second but I am not convinced the first one has been fulfilled. Your comment made me think about whether I still think they are compatible after all of the developments that have occurred. Still thinking about that one ...

I have to change the first line of my comment based on something another commenter aptly pointed out in earlier comments. JS wasn't forced into the marriage, though I do think he felt pressured to marry Hyo Joo.

Also, I don't think he sold his soul to the devil. It was more like he offered his soul to someone who declined it and wanted to be his friend instead. But in doing it, it did cause JS to feel pressured.

I think the rest of my comment still stands (for me).

In another world I would give this a thought, but manipulation was the foundation, no matter how compatible they are, to be manipulated into a relationship in such a way knowing that the other person doesn't even like you is never a good start to any relationship and I feel if the tables were turned and instead of her it was him doing the manipulation honestly people would call this what it was...

Most forced marriages start with pressure, so no he wasn't forced but neither was he really ever considered, he was given an option without being given one... It wasn't a yes or no offer let's be honest it was her with all this(I believe he also cared for her live) or maybe nothing and he wasn't up for the maybe...

I said sold his aoul because everyone just seem to point out what he would gain from marrying her and how much better off he would be because he had always wanted to move up in live, but at what cost... He wasn't happy to begin with now he had to marry someone he knew he didn't love and came with more baggage he wasn't ready for all in the name of what???

Not denying that manipulation was the foundation and it is an unhealthy foundation to begin with. You will get no argument from me there. But I don't feel the world is black and white. Because it started there doesn't mean it can't end up somewhere positive. But I have to add not without significant effort, confrontation, and change, repentance, and forgiveness. What would have been interesting for me to see in the drama was, given how compatible they seemed how would they get from this place of manipulation to a healthier place. If two people are compatible, is there really no forgiveness possible if a relationship started off on the wrong foot? Does it always need to end with someone being punished? Questions I would have liked to have seen explored.

For me, gender had no role to play in this. I would have wondered and wanted to see the same thing if the roles were reversed. I think the same issues would have played if the roles were reversed.

With regard to the second paragraph, I would like to add that however tough it may seem we always have the option to bow out and accept the consequences. I think he wasn't up for the maybe or he felt he couldn't choose for the maybe.

With regard to paragraph 3, I don't think that everyone held that perception, but there is no denying that he would have been better off financially. However, that was never what he was doing it for and that has been a point of discussion in at least one thread I can think of. He was driven by his father's influence on his life. The choices he made, he made willingly because of this and not because of the manipulation from the Lee family. He offered his soul because of the problems his father caused. He felt pressured because of the problems his father caused and the soul he had offered. Once the father fell away there was no compelling reason for him to stay. And he had no qualms in breaking off the engagement and leaving everything behind.

So did he sell his soul and why would we support that (which is the question I think you are ultimately asking)? I think he solved his problems the best he knew how to and that is what any human being does. When we know better, we do better and make smarter choices for ourselves and others. Depending on your perception and values you can judge him for the choices he made. I think everyone will look at it differently. About supporting a union between two seemingly compatible persons who started off wrong, I have written what I think above. The big factor was the appearance of compatibility. Not sure what I would have thought if they didn't seem compatible.

So the weird vibes I got from the last episode wasn't weird at all. Chef and husband really did have something going on. But I'm finding it strange that the thing they had was in high school which would have been at least 10 years ago? And husband still can't look chef in the eye despite them hanging out together and being so called best friends? (Sorry, for the life of me I still can't remember their names).

Please give us more cute scenes and no penultimate episode breakup or time jump please!! I'm loving Rowoon's every facial expression and mannerism. And KLAR team...you rock!

Oh...I didn't catch that part except that it most likely happened a long time ago, way before he got married. So it's still a long time to be harbouring any uncomfortable feelings especially since they're supposedly good friends now. How did they become good friends if they didn't talk it out before?

Jae-shin is getting his life back and under his control. He is free of his father and he got closure for his relationship with mother. (Kim Mi-Kyung was fantastic as always.) He is free from his toxic relationship with Hyo-joo and her family. He is apologized to Song-ah. He has truly made clean break from past and ready to move forward.
I really feel bad for Yeon-seung. She really is great person. I do not get her husband or the chef. Why they are hanging together after such history? Why not make a clean break from such awkward relationship?
On the other hand, I liked how cute the main couple is. Hopefully we will not have mandatory 14th episode break up and we will have truly satisfying ending.

I really did not expect Jae-Shin to apologize to her. But so glad he did. It doesn’t make me forgive him but Atleast Song Ah can move on with her life without too much regret about those two years she dated him.

I was worried for Hyo-Soo’s reaction. or what she would do next.
Her visiting the office was initially scary but I am glad every thing came to the open (I really like and Song Ah bravely faced the consequences of it. And I love team KLAR!!

I also like the way ceo/brother respectfully spoke to Song Ah about this misunderstanding. He didn’t throw his authority over her. His character for a rich chaebol is quite refreshing. And I felt for him when he realized Jae Shin never thought of him as a friend. I hope he gets married to this wonder family of siblings because he could use some love.

Yes, can’t wait for the double date!!!
And bring on more couple cuteness. No break ups please.

I initially thought he was going to be a slimy character but he turned out to be a good person and a competent and fair director. Was wondering how it would play out if Jae Shin married into the family. It would mean Jae Shin and Hyun Seung would be in-laws of sorts if Jae Woon married the sister.

This week, I'll sit at the table alone.
On the one hand--the hand that appreciates character growth--I like the Lee Jae Shin didnt turn into a mustache twirling villain during these eps. But on the other hand I found these eps (specifically ep 12) SO BORING! I enjoyed the mom cameo but--learning his mom was alive/around last week and visiting her this week only for her to confirm that abandoning him was the right decision? Was boring!
Hyo-Joo who seemed to put off an aura of being in control and being a bad beep? Was a total let down! She literally frantically ran from room to room screaming Lee Jae Shins name like she was going to find him hiding in a closet. After confronting Song-Ah she basically holed up in his apartment and cried. This tigress has no teeth, claws, or weight.
As for Jae Woo. I did feel badly for him. All of this time he thought Lee Jae Shin was his best friend only to learn that LJs really dis only think of him as the master he sold himself to all of those years ago. There were times where the friendship didnt seem on equal footing but you could tell that was basic chaebolness coming out--Jae Woo liked and respected Jae Shin.
The chef and the sisters husband. I dont know what I think there. We know that the restaurant is fairly new. Maybe the chef is a blast from the past who recently came back into the picture hoping to stir up some trouble and get back together with his former fling/ex and the husband told his wife that they are or used to be "best friends" to explain how well the chef knows him? I dont know whats going on here but I hope the wife isnt too badly hurt in the end. Shes a sweet woman.
As for our couple. They are stinking cute. And like everyone else, I love that Song-Ah had successfullly hidden a 2 year relationship with LJS but could barely make it 2 days with HS. HS wears his entire heart on his sleeve. Amd those two just light up when they are around each other!
Like I said. I found these eps auper boring this week! But after reading all of yalls comments and the weecap I think Ill give it another chance.

I think this drama is more like a spider that weaves its web than a straighforward story with a purpose like catching the bad guy.

It's the details that make the story. By example, the relationship between the Cha siblings : Hyun-Seung went back from his camping trip sooner to eat with his sisters, Yeon-Seung brought food to her sister and her mystery boyfriend, she could ask Hyun-Seung and Ji-Seung to take care of her daughter, Ji-Seung offered to diner with Hyun-Seung and his new girlfriend, etc. They're all details in the whole drama but it shows a beautiful relationship between the siblings.

It's the same for Song-Ah's job, there were a lot of scenes showing how much she loves her job and her brand : she spent the night to watch youtube video to protect her brand, she confronted the person, she made samples, etc. Her passion for her job influenced Hyun-Seung and he could influence the new trainee.

I'm definitely very sad that this drama is ending in two weeks, but it's been an enjoyable ride. I love Rowoon and Won Jin-ah's chemistry and how the show unashamedly admits to using corny lines. Honestly, I was very touched at how Yeon-Seung's husband always looks at her when she talks. However, he appears indifferent now and he should determine what makes him happy before talking with Yeon-Seung. Hyo-joo's simply been psychotic throughout the whole show, so I have no doubt she'll make another big splash before the end.

Oh my gosh thank you for this link! I've been trying to search for behind the scenes clips but the English titles doesn't turn up any results on Youtube. Anyway, that little girl is so delightful! She is such a great little actress and I would love to see her in more dramas. I just recently finished DoDoSolSol and Her Private Life and I think she played the young character of both female leads. I have to look it up to be sure. She is too cute!

I have to add though I can't help but gush about Rowoon too! Just when I thought I couldn't love him more, I find more ways! He is just so good with her here! He looks natural around children. He also seems to be very easy to get along and work with. I just wuv him! Admittedly at first I only watched Sunbae solely because of Rowoon because I am not into melos but I am glad that I went along with this ride. I am enjoying this show so so much! I am definitely Team KLARTeam! 😁

You can see all the BTS on their channel JTBC Drama, they have a # with a number in the title.

I don't remember for Her Private Life but yes she was the actress in DDSSLLS. She made me cry so much in the last episode :(

Rowoon is really good in this drama. He was a cute puppy in Extraordinary You and in this one he looks stunning as an adult.

This drama is not too melo, so it's nice love story.

KLAR team is so funny, I just love them all.

Oh wonderful, thank you! I am actually a baby beanie (just registered last night) and while I am not new to watching dramas, I am new to reading recaps and looking for bts clips after watching each episode. I will look for the clips in the network's channel from now on. 😊

I just looked her up and she is indeed the little Deok-mi in Her Private Life. She was so so cute! I recognized her because of her beautiful eyes.

And yes Rowoon's Haru was when I fell irrevocably in love with him. For such a big dude he can be oh so cute!!! I can't wait to see more of him!

And lol I guess I have not seen a real melo to make a comparison. I just saw another commenter somewhere refer to this drama as such. It is indeed a very sweet lovestory!

I was hesitant to watch this at first, especially after the first two episodes and the comments of the other beanies. But I am so glad I moved past that and stayed for the ride. The romance is killing me! Song-Ah and Hyeun-Seung are killing me! The kisses, the hand holding, the laughs, the jokes, it all feels so natural, organic and real!! I also appreciate the stories of secondary characters. I love dramas that are able to pull off interesting stories from characters other than the OTP. I think the writing is absolutely great. Jae Shin redemption arc was good and I actually ended up feeling so bad for him after his mother's rejection. I love the refreshing Jae Woon. I love the noona's arc with her husband and the chef. I had one question that got finally answered this week about hyo-joo and jae-woon' s parents. So the chairman disowned them!! Wow! What a great parent and grandparent this man is. I am curious to know why and I wonder whether Jae Woon and Hyo Joo will ever be able to break free from him...
