I\’ve reached the end of Into the Ring Ep 9 and THAT WENT ON LONGER THAN I EXPECTED IT\’S NOT EVEN A TVN/CABLE SHOW HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE #naol

Sera and Gong Myung\’s dynamic reminds me of Age of Youth\’s Ssong and Seungmin <3

I’m now in the phase where there’s more smiley Gong Myungs

I love how Gong Myung seems to be every bit as much the protagonist as Sera.

Also, awww he remembered <3

The Ep 10 confession still makes me swoon. I feel like I\’m being cradled by Siwan\’s voice. Heeeeeee….

Can someone explain why Mijoo and Sungyeom didn\’t switch to banmal yet? I thought he was teasing with the \”ani~~\” but he meant it? Err I don\’t get it.

Our TV is ancient so when I want to watch dramas on it, I have to ~creatively~ download the episodes and stick the ext drive in. I\’m trying to watch Hell is Other People, but my mum\’s not fond of the creeps. She’s now nagging me to download β€œthe detective show with the magic walkie talkie” instead lol

    I’m on your mom’s team: simply couldn’t cope with HiOP and loved Signal to bits 😂

    HiOP scared me a lot but I managed to finish it. Yaaay to more Siwannie~

    Has your mum watched STRANGER?
    *ahem* of course, I would ask that question…

      She’s seen the first 2-3 episodes. But I think Stranger required a bit of, uh, faster subtitle-reading and more context explanations. She’s new to Korean dramas hahaha (aside from Shinee shows LOL)

        Yeah that’s true. I’d rate Stranger as ‘advanced viewing’.
        Shinee shows 😂 – I like her priorities!

I wonder if I would’ve liked Run On this much if I binged it instead. I wish I loved the second OTP and that the dad could just go back to being his cringey coffee-bringing husband self. Don’t really care for lil brat bro. But! Overall I’m still enjoying everything. It’s light and breezy and cute and boy am I officially Siwan trash. I just kinda wanna get ahead to see more of sports agent Sungyeom and less politics-ing. (And more kisseshhh. You have 4 episodes to make up for it, Show. Pleaseandthankyou.)

    I have wondered this myself – some dramas are better not watched all at once and some you need to binge so you can get it down before you think to much 😂 , I think Run On is the former. (That said I did watch the first five episodes all in one go 😅 so what do I know)

      Yeah I agree. I also started when all 5 were already out. Personally I think dramas that often end with cliffhangers are better binged, ie Sky Castle, Forest of Secrets etc. For rom coms I’m not really sure 😅

      I felt the latter for It’s okay not to be okay. I live watched for the first 10 episodes and did’nt feel the full impact. But after the show completed I binged the last 6 and I loved it so much even if those episodes were the weakest. And you’re right that run on should’nt be binged. It should be savoured.

        It really should be! I recommended Run On to my friend early on, but she can only watch it after her board exam’s over and now I’m worried she won’t enjoy it as much.

What the… I just read the headline \”Matsumoto Jun cast as lead for NHK 2023 drama\” and had to check the calendar.

I kinda hate that I’m wondering why they dressed them up like…this. Especially Mijoo. They’re not terrible. I mean they look cozy. It’s fine. But I guess I wanna see what other choices they had lmao

Siwanie in purple wine AND SeKyung in BROWN! Love love love. He’s even matchy-matchy with the jtbc logo. 😭

β€œBut are the feelings you have for me, romantic feelings?” Now that I’m learning Korean again (and because of the narrative lol) I’m paying more attention to the translations vs the few lines I can understand, especially in this scene~ I really love how his confession turned out…

    I wish these subtitles were better, ugh! I get annoyed whenever I catch the differences with my limited Korean knowledge and then wonder how much else I’m missing.

      Ikr. What annoys me more about Netflix subs though is that THEY SPOIL THINGSSSGDGSNRE grr.

      I find it deeply ironic that the subtitles are missing so much when the show is about a translator and has such a focus on communication/misinterpretation.

      OMG RIGHT! It rubs me the wrong way. I’ve picked up enough Korean to spot when this happens & even understand what they’re *actually* saying most of the time, but that gets me out of the flow of the drama (since i have a beginner’s grasp of the language) bc i have to translate it MYSELF.
      I also hate the thing they do with names (invert them) & honorifics

        Luckily they’ve stopped inverting the names. Drove me nuts and I could never remember character names because of it!

    Noooooow it makes more sense!
    Thanks for bringing some clarity, @astrojoy

    I notice it especially with this drama. The subtitles don’t catch the specific sentiments and because the dialogue is so amazing and cheeky/clever it really makes me sad πŸ™
