~10 years of watching kdrama and I’ve never had a KDrama Oppa I’m swooning over regardless of the show. I usually dig the story and the characters more than the actors behind them. Though of course there are actors I’ve already come to trust in picking great projects. So if you asked me who my celebrity crush was, I wouldn’t be able to answer.. Until Kim Seon Ho. Shucks, this guy is making me break my record. I’m even following his IG, for crying out loud! Haha

      1
      1

        Yes, I enjoy it a lot. It was fun from start to finish but if I had to pick my top 3 moments, it would be when he did the car ad thingy cause it was funny, when he try to cook tteokbokki (he tried but let just say cooking is not his forte) and his reaction to his tteokbokki was too funny. his face shows exactly how it taste and it was definitely not good lol
        and the surprise fan event at the end was touching. I get teary eyed during that part. I mean, he probably know he has a lot of fans now, his ig followers keep rising but I dont think he can wrap his head around it? the fame, the new fans. but that fan massages wall, I think it really put things into perspective imo. he looked touched and probably slightly overwhelmed by it? it makes me sad when he apologized and said he will do better. I hope he just enjoy it rather than feel burden by it.
        like one of the massage said, you dont have to be perfect, you just need to be happy

          Even I got teary reading this line “You don’t have to be perfect, you just need to be happy.” It might be difficult for him since I consider him a people-pleaser, but he truly needs to learn this by heart. He is enough as he is (the same is for everyone else actually.)

          Thanks for sharing those wonderful moments. I just hope that someone upload this on the internet so I’ll get a chance to watch it in full too. ☺️❤️

Can’t believe I just now started watching 2 Days 1 Night. I skipped right thru season 4 (coz ya know, Kim Seon Ho), but I’m sticking for the team. I just love them all! And what a hoot this show! From episode 1 to my current watch (episode 19) it’s just been non-stop laughter. Haven’t laughed this much for a show since forever. Granted I don’t watch that many variety shows but I don’t think I laughed this much with Running Man or 3MAD, despite my love for Eric, Seo Jin and Kyun Sang. Gah! I’m even half-regretting starting this coz I’m getting addicted to all the dopamine, like Ravi being obsessed with ramyeon. 😂😂😂

Otoke?!!?

      Seon Ho for his innocent, impressionable side but is becoming more and more “evil” over time. Haha
      Dindin with his little kid presence and Tom & Jerry dynamic with almost everyone.
      And of course Ravi, with his obsession with ramyeon and his sweet maknae vibes looking out for his hyungs. ❤️❤️

I wonder how I would have reacted to KSH’s Oh Jin Gyu if I hadn’t watched Startup first.. Would I have fallen for him less? Shucks. This show just further cemented me in Kim Seon Ho’s camp. I’m not the kind to watch a show just for the actor but man. From now on I’m watching anything that has Kim Seon Ho in it. Haha 😍😍😍

*And what is it with KSH’s roles and debts? He always has some huge lifetime debt to pay. 😆

    I really liked how he portrayed Oh Jin Kyu -There was a quiet desperation there that no one realised cos they weren’t aware of OJK’s struggles. Granted the character could’ve been very unlikable cos despite his struggles he also had immense privilege, but i think both writer and actor managed to balance OJK’s different sides perfectly.

    I hated him so much at first because of the accident but Show and KSH did an excellent job of redeeming his character. He’s such a scene stealer.

Currently checking out Strongest Deliveryman. Those who\’ve watched this Waikiki 2 prior to Startup must have found it jarring to see him play the ever so serious Han Ji Pyeong. 😂
(Though his comedic chops still manage to shine through. Shucks. Kim Seon Ho is ❤️.)

Lovestruck in the City – the concept reminds me so much of Discovery of Romance, a show dear to me despite its flaws. Might actually watch this weekly. KJW is ❤️, as always, but my only JCW show was Healer. This might be next in line. Hoping it\’s good.

    From two episodes I have seen, I can say it is trope filled manhaw/rom-com type high school drama. They have not touched upon real issues yet. It is more slapstick-y than both the dramas.

    I have to say I’ve never seen a more perfect casting for a webtoon than this. And yes, the webtoon isn’t done yet, but if you’re up to date with it, you kinda know where it’s going. So I don’t think it’ll be CITT 2.0. 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽 It’s a really pretty show.

    I haven’t watched either of those dramas or the webtoon, but I liked True Beauty. It is a light, youthful rom-com with classic tropes and silly humor. These things haven’t bothered me because they fit with the vibe of this rom-com.

    I agree with @stroopwafel‘s review in What We’re Watching. Old school drama is a good description.

    I’m interested in the main female lead’s growth. ^^

Opened Netflix with the full intention of scraping a bean off my unfinished list – only to end up rewatching Hospital Playlist instead. 🤦🏻‍♀️😆
I loved Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 1 but for some reason, I just can\’t finish season 2. And it\’s not even the cast\’s fault. I love Lee Sung Kyung and Ahn Hyo Seop shines in this role. I guess I\’m just tired of the political machinations in the plot. Seemed like an echo from season 1. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I love Ji Pyeong but I’m satisfied with how it ended. Honestly, I didn’t really care if he ended up with Dal Mi or not. What I cared about was he find a family and finally realize that he’s loved and valued. And the show gave me that. So I’m happy for him. Whether he’ll get to find his own girl or not, I believe he’d be happy helping kids who’s going through the same things he went through. Gotta admit though that that scene with him and In Jae looked good but they’re just too alike. Haha!

And I’m happy for Do San. If this was another show, or the real world, most of the ladies would be rooting for him. He’s just such a sweet puppy! 🥺

If there’s anything I can thank this show for, it’s that it introduced me to the marvel that is Kim Seon Ho. Shucks. Can’t believe I was unimpressed when I first saw him on the poster. Sure sang a different tune when I saw him play Han Ji Pyeong right from episode 1. Will surely be digging his other works next.

You sucked big time, 2020. But still, thank you for giving me 2 new biases in Kim Seon Ho and Lee Jae Wook. Binged Search: WWW over the weekend. Up next would be Strongest Deliveryman. 😁

For a moment there I feared that Ji Pyeong-ah would take the Nasty SL bait. He almost did but phew! Good thing he came through. How could I ever have lost faith in Good Boy? Ugh. Dal Mi, choose Do San please. We’d like to have Ji Pyeong for ourselves. 😆💗💗

Since I’m still reeling from that wtf-ery of an ending, I’m grasping for any feel-good old shows. Found myself rewatching Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village Season 3. Ahhh.. Instantaneous grinning. This trio must be one of the best 3MAD cast. I need more seasons of them than the two I already watched on repeat. Kyung Sang is such an adorable puppy and his cats are a cute bonus! Seo Jin’s dry humor and dimples! 😍 And Eric’s cooking. *sigh* If Eric opens up a resto in SoKor, that’ll probably be the time I’m booking the next flight asap. 😆

P.S. Who else thinks Dodo’s Seung-gi could be Yoon Kyung Sang’s younger doppelganger? Shucks. They need to be cast as bros asap! 😁

Ok. So I had to sleep. Can\’t believe I watched Dodo after my night duty. I wasted the precious 4 hours that I could have spent happily dreaming! I couldn\’t even go directly to sleep coz my brain refuses to shut up ranting in outrage! Argh! Anyway…

What if that was really what the writer intended all along? The tragic death for the ending? But the producers decided it was too tragic an ending for such a fluffy romcom that they forced her to change the ending? The way I see it, that ending really was kind of abrupt. When I was watching it, I kept looking at the time frame thinking that they couldn\’t possibly pull a DOTS what with the few minutes left. And even when they did, his explanation was so half-baked, like it was just plastered in as after-thought. And Jun as the character post-idiotic time jump was also a jarring contrast to who he was for the other episodes as well. It actually reminded me of Surplus Princess – except that time, it was cut so that ending was called for.

    I actually thought that Jun dying would have made a lot of thematic sense – Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol was a shining star watching over her, right? Her guardian angel? I didn’t mind the ending where Jun died.
    BUT HE DIDN’T. He convinced her he was dead for five years! I think that was the most instantaneous character assassination I’ve ever seen.

      I hated that ending. And I hated his expression in that final scene. It’s almost like he’s amused at it all. Ah, you really thought I was dead these past five years? Silly girl. God, I hated this finale. I think my blood pressure must have gone up while watching it.

    If it was another writer I could believe she was forced to do it,but with this writer I really think she wanted that twist at the end and wasn’t forced to do it, because she really likes fakeouts and used a big number of them in this drama. It reminds me of the Game of Thrones writers in a way, where subverting viewers expectations became more important that properly building up the story for the end. I think the writer thought what she was doing was clever because she inserted plot twist after plot twist and didn’t bother to make it make sense.

    Yes. Still mad this morning 😤
    It feels like the show was running along the way it should and then someone looked at the clock and said, omg we only have 5 minutes to finish this drama! So they slapped on an inexplicable situation, said “done!” and then went out for drinks.

The last time I remember this level of outrage at a finalé was Memories of Alhambra. But at least that was a steady descent since half of its run! By the time the final episode rolled, we were no longer that surprised by how bad it went. But this. DoDoSolSolLaLaSol, we had faith in you! You flaunted one of this year’s best romcom OTP. You chucked tropes out the window. You were my weekly happy pill! How could you finish off our precious Junie’s character? And at the very last episode at that? I’ve been itching to make my friends watch it after it’s completed its run. Now I can’t even do that. I loved this show for the most part but I don’t think the feel-good, kilig-to-the-bones 80% could make up for that awful ending.

Great. Now I only have Startup on my current watchlist. But I don’t think I can handle any more heartbreaks. Should have just started Tale of the Nine-Tailed or Kairos or even The Spies Who Loved Me instead. 😩😞

*The only upside to this is reading all the outrage on the DB wall. At least I’m not alone. At least even when utterly pissed, I’m also laughing at and with the rants I’m reading. 😅😔

      Guy breaks up with girl because of noble idiocy, we are led to believe that his parents are forcing him to do it but no, twist, he actually has leukemia. She contacts him, they get back together, but he lies to her that he is going to study abroad. He is supposed to attend a Christmas party at which she plans to propose but his mother shows up instead and informs her he was sick and died. Everybody cries. Time skip. 5 YEARS LATER. Guy just shows up one day at her door, he is alive, not a ghost. He lied because he didn’t want her to see him being sick. She cries, he LAUGHS at her. Doesn’t even apologize. HE. JUST. LAUGHS then to prove he really is not a ghost proceeds to kiss her. She kisses him back. THE END.

        wiat.. but there were babies in some pic :O

        that was a dream

        And, let me just get this straight in my own words:

        1. Last i saw he ran out of the church with her in wedding dress
        2. I assume from there on, that wedding must have been some random buz idea / set up… they spend good times.. and he breaks up.. goes for his treatment.. after 5 years when he is 23 and she is 29 he comes back.. kisses her.. and they get married and have babies (or montage of it?)

        *************
        he he.. @Cindymahri thnks.. i needed this

        1
        1

          1.The wedding was fake of course. Ha Young and Seung-gi started a wedding planning business after graduating high school.
          2. He breaks up by making her believe he has a new girlfriend and no longer likes her. But then that lie is revealed, he is also DDSSLLS so they get back together before he goes for treatment, but he never tells her he is sick, just that he is studying abroad. Until that Christmas party which he said he will attend but his mom shows up instead to tell Ra Ra that he died. The baby is another fakeout, 5 years later Ha Young and Seung-gi have a child and Ra Ra is just babysitting. The big reveal that Jun is alive is in the last minutes.
          Maybe I made it sound worse than it was? All the other characters were cute till the end, and while Jun and Ra Ra’s story went downhill it could’ve been salvageable without that I lied to you for 5 years that I was dead part.

            hmm.. from the onset i knew given age difference.. story cannot have a happy ending until he is 23/24.. and morally it will feel wrong in kdrama society rule structure.. hence some plot point has to get them together after a LONG gap.. at the earlies 23/24.

            Now how that long gap comes is a diff. question. I was hoping for more mature (took career aspirations seriously, became a doctor and comes back to rekindle romance 🙂 )… but well i guess death scare and terminal illness will also do

    You most definitely should start BOTH 9Tails AND Spies to get over this…hot mess. 9Tails in particular just picks up more and more steam ep after ep. It’s weird and campy and not without its plot holes here and there, but it’s thrown so many tropes on their head, and I can honestly say that at the end of each episode I’m never entirely sure where it’s going. Plus all the fantasy and folklore elements just make it so…well, fantastical. Come join us on the Fox Side! 😊

      Totally agree. I’ve just started it and it’s fantastic! Am wondering if it’s not getting more buzz because it’s not available on Viki or Netflix? I’m watching on iQIYI, which I’m not in the habit of using. And I also notice that the streaming quality isn’t that great, and the casting quality is terrible – something I’ve heard others mention on other forums, too. It’s a shame. I really like Yoo In-na in general, and she’s well-matched with Eric here.

        I think that is definitely because it got very less coverage here as well and it’s not on the main subbing channels. But honestly MBC is producing few shows now but they are taking out the best scripts. I’m usually surprised that how wholesome each episode is and Kang Ah Reum is the best female lead I’ve seen in dramaland till date.
