Came here after ages and saw you guys all gushing about Lovers of the Red Sky! So here I go away again to watch it! See you all soon!

So much have been said about Nevertheless so I won’t add anything new except for the fact that I finally noticed PJY’s apartment. What was the look he was going for? Morgue? Dungeon?

I mean how hard is for one doctor to tell her doctor boyfriend that her mother needs surgery? Like why?

‘Yobo I can’t make it my mother is undergoing surgery’

How hard is that? Ugh! #HP2

    the drama took 1.5 hours to build the answer to this “Why”

    lol.. doctors lose their minds when it comes to their own near and dear ones

      I am so bored this season. Nothing happens. It’s like a new day at work that’s all. The main characters aren’t moving forward.

      2
      1

        agree.. no story to tell..
        and no love story either to keep people invested

        too banal

    That would have been too practical.

    They were hinting at domestic abuse a few episodes ago. I guess if the mom needs surgery because she was beat up, I might be able to see why she just shut down about it.

      Yeah but he is her boyfriend. She liked him first so I am sure this relationship is serious to her. How long can she keep him in the dark about her family?

    ugh

    I’m less and less interested with every tidbit I hear about this latest episode

    When the main conflict is that someone can’t communicate something so simple? Well yeah, I’m just going to be annoyed with the writer and ff or turn it off.

Basically if you fall in love with a mythical character you will ALWAYS have a happy ending.

      I have seen only Goblin and YFAS. I don’t remember a tragic ending in both….unless I was so bored that I missed the ending?

        It wasn’t the HEA that some expected, Goblin was rather terrible and the others were bittersweet.

Unpopular opinion…..

My care factor for the main leads in My Roommate is a Gumiho is ZERO..

I think this is my first ‘romance’ drama that went on for 20 hours without a single kiss between the leads 😄 But also…it kinda didn’t matter….

    I happen to be rewatching Mr Sunshine, so I will guess it’s that. There’s definitely a noticeable lack of kissing going on. 💋

      But there is kissing though…? I never saw the last two episodes but I definitely feel like there was one somewhere

        I don’t remember, and I’m only up to 20.

        But how could I forget Bossam, I just watched it!🤦🏼‍♀️ I guess I thought there was a kiss.

I actually liked ep 3 of Nevertheless. I was waiting to get annoyed but I didn’t…let’s see what ep 4 will take me…

You know, Oreshin should just leave those two kids alone to deal with their fate. Why? Because:

– he is not human
– he is 1000 years older than her
– he is her professor (ewww!)

Let them be!!!

    “He is her professor” was never a hurdle in dramaland~~
    Hosplay WinterGarden and BearCouple are the closest example; … and MyLovefromtheStar kim sohyun was junjihyun’s prof too.
    20again lee sangyoon also choi jiwoo’ prof

        Not my cup of tea either, but Gumiho wasn’t really ever her professor. He only did that to “watch” her. Well, that sounds even worse. 😂

      Also I have no clue who WinterGarden and Bear couple is 😆 And I wasn’t a huge fan of My love from another star.

        .. i put the drama title in front of every couple tho.
        As much as they werent triggered me; i do think its not right too.

          And also I think in MLFAS she was primarily known as an actress not a student. Lee Dam is a student

          1

            Thats what we see as viewers.
            But if its reallife, she would be a celebrity student who hungout too much and eventually dated her professor. Then again, they were in dramaland, where ethical rules pretty much ignored.

      I have less of a problem with 20s again because they were the same age and knew each other independently of the professor/student relationship but in general I’m never than comfortable with teacher/student romance.

    Half my complains from this show are because he won’t leave his job as a professor. He doesn’t even care for the position. He should just leave

    Just wondering.. it’s a fantasy so surely we can’t take the 1000 year old thing and treat it like human years?

    1
    1

      Yeah that’s right! But it asks that same old question ‘what does a 1000 year old have in common with a 20 year old?’

I watched a lot of segueks but I don’t think I have seen anyone act with so much grace and poise, as a princess as Yuri. Even in peasant clothes she looks regal. Gorgeous!

19

    Somehow her acting and grace managed to capture the heart of mine, too. For me, she is the most beautiful Princess in any Kdrama sageuks I’ve ever seen. Her grace and how composed she is permeate the screen; she is low-key charismatic here.

    Given, how irritating her character was in her drama with jisung..
    this just shows what an amazing actress she is.. the versatile actress

      i second this. i never thought of her as an actress let alone be a good one. but this time she proved me wrong and i am happy for that too.

    She’s regal, gracious and smart. I love her so much

    (she should go back to writing smutty books though, that made me laugh)

      The king didnt know shes the one write them, did he?
      Imagine his reaction when he knows that the apple of his eyes, the ever graceful princess sooyeon of joseon, as the first smutty manhwa writer 🤣🤣.

    absolutely true.. and its not just the physical presence or the aura is Regal to the highest level.. its her way to handle adversity that blows me completely.
    every time someone does anything wrong or bad to her she comes back with such a patient response (not reaction) to handle the situation i feel like she is the epitome of an Empowered Woman.
    not even once she raises her voice to show her anger or disappointment but the way she carries herself even that proves her Royalty.
    I just love her soooooooooo much.

    Yuri really embodies the role really well. Her princess is dignified, righteous, selfless, graceful and brave. There are more good qualities but these are top of mind right now. I know the character is well written but she acts perfectly amazing as the regal Princess. In all situations, she handles it with grace and forbearance. She knows what is important and does not waste it on pettiness.

    6
    1

      Yes exactly! She doesn’t waste her time on petty things and looks at the bigger picture! I think anyone else in this role would have looked like a pushover. It’s like she was born to play a true Royal! Love her!

    I love her so much. 💜I hope we get to see her shine even brighter in the final episodes. She’s suffered enough at home while the guys went on adventures.

    I don’t think I can get on board with either the constant stroking of FL or the advertising of smoking.

    (I don’t know if that last one is just me – I only actually know one person who smokes in real life because smokefree is a big thing here so I am really really noticing the smoking in dramas lately because it’s so unusual (and gross) to me)

    4

      The smoking is one thing, but the guy is WAY too handsy. It keeps making me cringe, so I guess this drama’s a no go for me.

        I haven’t made it to the end of first episode, way too handsy for me too.

      I don’t have any issues with smoking. My dad smokes so I grew up around it! But yes he is too handsy! Stop touching her!!!

      The patting on the head makes me wince. The toxic vibes (tobacco assisted) … But what disturbs me most is the FL dragging herself around everywhere.

    My sister and I watched the first episode but we aren’t sure if we will continue watching. The male lead definitely has no boundaries! The female lead is obviously attracted to him but I can see that she isn’t comfortable with how forward he is.

      He is definitely a player! I am not saying I won’t watch but it’s definitely not your run of the mill kdrama male lead.

Can I safely say I am interested in everything else other than the ‘romance’ of the OTP in MRIAG? They do nothing for me.

But these two are the best! 😃

    Me too! The comedy from the first two episodes is waning and I keep getting distracted by Dam’s hair in close-up shots. The edges of her hair looks like a neatly trimmed bush.

2021 Mid-Year Drama Challenge


Best 2021 Drama (so far) 

I would have to say Bossam even though it is still running. I also enjoyed Mr Queen just because of all the laughs it gave me and boy did I need the laughs


Best Scene from your favourite drama

‘Hyeri wanting meat’ scene from My Roommate is a Gumiho! That girl is a hoot I tell you! That scene will live rent free in my head for a very long long time!

Favourite OTP

The Mr Queen duo. Sizzling chemistry. Both the leads are such amazing actors. I was very excited to see two actors that I really admired getting paired together. They did not disappoint!


Favourite OST

Bossam is giving me such Pink Floyd vibes. Love it


Drama(s) you dropped 

Oh boy! Let’s see – Run On, Oh My Master, Lipstick Sunbae, Flower of Evil (was that even this year?), Lovestruck in the city…

Drama you hate-watched (and finished)

Look I promised for my own peace of mind I will drop Doom but I am also a serial hate watcher…what should I do?

Drama many loved but you didn’t

Umm…Doom..? khik…khik


Drama you loved but most didn’t

I know not too many people where on board with Mr Queen and didn’t like how it ended. It probably deserved a better ending I must admit but for that particular genre the writing was solid and the acting was top notch. Not to mention the comedy. THIS is the kind of comedy I can get on board with.


Drama you’ve rewatched this year

My goodness! None! Ack!

Last Drama you finished 

Mr Queen…wow that was so long ago! I think I need to update my Dropped list again…

    I understand so much your feelings about Doom. I’m there with you. You’re not alone. We can do therapy together when this ends and nothing makes sense and you and I would ask ourselves why, why, why…

    Mr Queen gave lots of laugh when people needed it. I have lots of love for the drama too. SHS and KJH were really amazing in it. 💕

    I have been using fast forward button and skipping scenes on Doom lately. If it were not for LSH I may have dropped this show already.

      I am pretty much done with Doom. I dont even care about the OTP. I can’t take it anymore.

        I agree with you the writing is not doing PBY and SIG any favors. LSH is the one keeping me glued. I just love seeing LSH and hearing him speak so I am interested in what will happen with his character. But if his story tanks, I will drop the show definitely.

          Yeah but did they have to make him such a creep? Young girl cries in the rain lamenting she didn’t even get to kiss her boyfriend. Stranger/boyfriends sunbae kisses said girl. Wtf? Why?

          0
          1

            I know what you mean. So I am waiting for the show to explain his behavior. Hopefully it makes sense. But if the writing on the main otp is any basis, not sure if it will make sense at all.
