Mouse Ep 8 – that’s not where we’re going with this, right? Someone tell me it’s not.

    @beffels I was talking with my mom and sister and we believe it is another mislead. However, we could in fact be mistaken and this is exactly the direction they want to go in.

      I’m hoping it’s another mislead because that’s very cheesy if it’s not. Still pretty early in the drama, so like you I think probably being deliberately misleading.

    If you’re referring to that final scene, I am led to believe that this is not true. I mean, otherwise, wouldn’t we be stepping into makjang territory? 😉

    Thank you for the great news. You made my day!

    Now can you please work your magic for SBS’s JOSEON EXORCIST?

    Why add an extra episode for that. There was no point to it unless they are setting up a second season, but even then, it was pretty pointless.

I’ve been terribly slack at participating but I’m popping in for Valentine’s Day with a how-we-met story.

When I was at university, I went flatting with some friends. There were four of us and we could only find a five bedroom house so we advertised for a random flatmate.

We had a lot of replies – I was working in a different part of the country over the holidays so two of my friends chose our new flatmate. He was a baby because we were all twenty and he was only eighteen. He was a nice boy who didn’t know how to cook and he had terrible floppy boyband hair.

We could very easily never have met – we came from different parts of the country, had no friends in common, were in different years at uni….but we did meet, and became good friends. Then, when we had all moved out of the flat a few years later, there was a party. He kissed me. I started laughing and he totally panicked. I apologised but he has never, ever let it go 😅

We’ve been married now for over ten years and we have three kids together. He now has considerably less hair but his cooking has improved significantly. He’s still a nice boy.

Love, February

6pm, dinner time is underway.

Door opens, my husband is home from work. Six year old’s monologue on Pokémon is interrupted as he and his sister throw themselves from their chairs and race to be the first to give Dad a hug.
One year old is strapped into the high chair or she would be there too.

Back at the table, six year old asks “Dad, what was your favourite part of your day?”
“Getting home to have dinner with my family.”

Love, February.

I love seeing the moon on a summer morning. It was still there, white in a perfectly blue sky, when I was walking to work today. It feels like it follows you, and it reminds me of being a child when I believed it really did.

Lovestruck took way too long getting past the endless beach flashbacks but now it has, it’s much better.

4

    Yes, I agree. It’s much easier to watch, especially since it feels like the side characters are getting more screen time. Also, while Eun-oh’s actions re Jae-won are completely inscrutable imo, she’s actually pretty likeable I find, especially when she’s around her friends. Mopey Jae-won is still meh, and I still want more of the other four friends (especially Rin-yi and Kyung-joon; they are so cute and both actors are so good!), but I’ll take the improvement.

    3

      I guess you might panic when you discovered the guy you pretend-married when you were taking a break from your real life was actually connected to your real life…..(and then I will just strategically ignore the bit where she didn’t own up and just let him go on being miserable and tortured for ages and ages). Jae-won gets to be angry mopey now instead of mopey mopey which I feel is an improvement 😄 either way it’s better than the Happy Flashback Jae-won, I found him so irritating.

      2

      I find both JaeWon and EunOh dislikable, but I have to be on JaeWon’s side. The fact that she’s been heartbroken doesn’t give her right to behave the way she did. Having said this, I think both JCW and KJW are doing a very good job, I’m liking their acting (and I found JCW meh at the beginning and couldn’t connect to KJW but now I do).

      3
      2

        Yes, agree – being heartbroken yourself doesn’t give you a pass on breaking someone else’s heart. I think if they’d cut down the timeframe on him finding her again so she hadn’t left him wallowing in misery for quite so long/cut down on the time spent flashing back to the beach I would like this drama much better.

        Then again I’m still watching it so 🤷‍♀️

        3
        0

        I don’t understand any of Eun-oh’s behaviour in re Jae-won, but I find her otherwise very likeable. I agree that being heartbroken is no excuse to yank Jae-won around, especially since she has knowledge of how devastating her behaviour has been for Jae-won.

        I still don’t connect to Jae-won or JCW’s acting at all; I still find him. I didn’t connect to KJW at all at first, but now I think she’s doing a pretty decent job.

        I still think the show should’ve focused on Sun-young, Geon, Kyung-joon, and Rin-yi more. They’re the real stars of this show.

Well I’m sure that many of us feel a mysterious urge to rush out and buy glasses and/or contact lenses after that extremely subtle piece of marketing in Run On 😂

    Yeong-Hwa even mentioned LASEK laser eye surgery when Seon-Gyeom was struggling to put his contact lenses on.

    What I didn’t get is why he didn’t get glasses AND contacts? Those who wear contacts will agree that you definitely need a pair of glasses as well! 😂

      It’s good that he got daily disposals, I got once terrible eye infection and from that time I’m allowed to wear only those ones. But lastly I’m wearing and not wearing my last pair of glasses ( other two got broken by my little one). So yes glasses are always important.

      1
      1

        😂😂😂 Aw – I have unbreakable lenses, so I haven’t managed to break a pair as yet.

        I was a dedicated contact wearer for years, and used all kinds – the dailies are definitely the best… Although, I got irritated with having to put them on, so switched back to glasses. The convenience and cost! I can get a decent pair of glasses for the same price of one month’s quota of dailies! Definitely never going back to contacts now.

        1
        2

          Just curious because I’m considering contacts! The reusable contacts do need to be removed before sleeping right? So they would need to be put on every morning? Isn’t it the same experience, in that sense, as dailies?

          0
          2

            Yes! The annual and monthly reusables I used had to be removed before sleeping, and soaked in solution overnight before putting them on in the morning.

            The critical difference between dailies and reusables is the maintenance: you don’t need to soak overnight – you just remove and throw. Plus with dailies, you get to wear a fresh new pair of contacts every day, so I found it relatively more comfortable.

            1

            You have to remove every lenses from your eyes, some of them can be worn for twelve hours, but if you’ll fell asleep with them on you’ll wake up with very dry irritated eyes and you need to wet them before you painfully remove your contacts. Put them on when the eyes are reposed and not red anymore. It happened to me so many times 😭 Anyway eye hygiene is the most important and because of the small closed space between the lense and your eye, the bacterias and viruses can spread very fast. Dailies are handy that you don’t have to be super careful to keep them clean in the container. Just a piece of dust can make your eyes irritated. On the other hand their are not Eco friendly.

          I had two pairs of glasses very chic and expensive, they both were destroyed by my little one. What’s plastic it’s not fantastic… I got one not expensive one and that one was broken also (babies don’t like glasses and masks). Still have one pair – metal one and I hardly wear my daily disposals anymore – my eyes get tired faster.

      I have two different glasses. Annual contacts and monthly disposable… just in case.
      But I’m very, very, very short-sighted and I can’t live in a world without glasses.
      I have a backup for the backup!

      2
      2

        Same! I’m probably legally blind for some kinds of jobs and assignments. I have really really bad eyes. So there’s no way I can live without glasses. So I have a drawer full of spectacles of different vintage and types – plain, photochromic, framed, rimless, powered shades… (many are scratched though. I should probably get rid of some :/ )

        1

          Oh, I forgot sunglasses (two that I can recall) and my reenactment glasses. These one belonged to my great grandmother and I replaced the glasses so if in a reenactment event I can’t wear my lenses, my glasses would fit better with my whole attire.

          2
          2

            ooh reenactment glasses! But surely, this will be specific to a particular costume? or can you wear it generally with any ensemble? I don’t have glasses like these. Though your story reminds me Notting Hill and that scene where Hugh Grant goes to the cinema hall with his powered swimming goggles because he can’t find his regular spectacles. 🤓

            I have pictures of my great grandmother with them (I think the oldest is in the 1930’s) so I basically can wear them with any 19th and 20th century attire. They are not the best for regency (too big, made of tortoiseshell and those were not common until mid 19th century), but obviously better than my everyday glasses!

        Have you tried eyes gymnastics? It worked for me – from -2,75 to – 1,75 in four years. Even my ophthalmologist couldn’t believe it. I get serious headaches when I’m wearing glasses all day so even if I can’t see clearly in nature and home I try to do without them.

        3

          I tried when I was a teenager, but gave up.
          I have +9 on both eyes, so…

          1
          1

            While teenager my eyes got wrong, I was literally like SG in Run On from one day to another couldn’t see people greeting me and couldn’t recognise them when farther than two meters. Hormones play an important role in eye sight, maybe you could have hormonal imbalance. I will be leaving my entire 30’s this year and I’ve met few people in their 60’s who improved their eye sight by doing little exercises like 3 to 4 times per day. It’s tiresome but the brain gets different signals and is forced to find other solutions.

          Wow. Never tried but now I’m probably too old. Also I have a family history of really bad eyes. My power has been stable for ~15 years or so now, at -7 and -6.5, so I’m happy with just this much. 😀

            It’s those screens and reading in the night time. It’s a great invention – glasses, I think without them we would have been considered as useless human beings.

      I always had a back up pair – these days I don’t wear contacts so much because it was easier to just put glasses on with small kids around. But I still have to have backups for when the baby pulls the arms off my current pair 😠 I’m way too blind without 😅

        Haha. I have no kids, but I agree on the convenience of just putting glasses on versus the tedium of contacts.

        I was thinking the same! Like it’s a meta joke – the writer of Run On is a product of the Kim Eun Sook factory (just like in Be Melo). Maybe she’s just having a laugh at all the sponsors, lumping all the PPL they could find into one episode.

So do we think we’ll actually get an explanation for why Eun-o ghosted Jae-won, or is that asking too much?

    At this point I don’t even care.
    She’s been really a bad person and so childish.
    I mean: be an adult and go tell him it was all a lie and you don’t want to see him ever again. Be an adult.
    But in today’s episode, learning she knew how bad he was doing, how much he was missing her, how much he needed a closure and even so, she did nothing.
    I mean, it’s clear to me she had feelings for JW (I don’t think she’s in love, it feels to me like she’s sorry she’s used him to escape reality), but she doesn’t care a little bit about him to help him understand why. She knows it’s driving him crazy, and even so, she does nothing.
    I don’t know what reason she may have or even if she has one, but it’s not valid to me.
    If they end up together they will be unhappy ever after.

      It really went beyond ridiculous as soon as he was friends with her friends and she didn’t own up.

      At this point the only excuse I can think of is some kind of curse that will make him drop dead if she tells him the truth 😄

Day 13: Most Fashionable/Elegant
Just like everyone else I’m going to give this to Ko Moon Young from IOTNBO.

Day 14: Drama that could have been
The King: Eternal Monarch had an interesting concept, some great characters (played by WDH 😅), an entertainingly large amount of PPL…but it just buried anything good under a needless large amount of arty landscape shots, falling in love with an ID card and generally terrible pacing.
