Beanie level: Noble idiot

Wow wow wow. So many thoughts running through my head after watching WWW episode 11. What? How? What?!?

    So, all three of them went to the same high school? What?!? Did they know this? They could not have known this because Cha Hyeon and Ta Mo seemed to not know each other when they met? Does Ga Kyung know? I’m so confused…And just wowed at this reveal.

    Ga Kyung and her husband should have been born in normal families and met each other as normal people and gotten married. I feel like they are such good people, but circumstances which have lasted years have turned them into what they are now. They could genuinely love each other – well I think the husband already does. If we only have one couple in the end, it better be them – after a divorce and proper remarriage with no mother in law in the picture of course. They should run away together.

I really wan to understand Park Mo-Gun’s fascination with Ta Mi. I get how he could like her, I just don’t understand how it could happen so quickly for him.

    Are there people who are intimate with people the first time they meet BECAUSE they have serious intentions?:
    “Hey, nice to meet you, I’m attracted to you. Let’s sleep together and embark on a serious relationship.”
    I’m not trying to be sarcastic either, I genuinely want to know if this happens in real life. I still think Mo-Gun knew her somehow before…but I’m getting less sure since they have yet to show us an inkling of this. It could come later seeing as the romance is not the main part of the show…

    I don’t get it either. I actually found him shady for a while since I thought there had to be something else driving him.

    he can no longer see his dog’s face on the search engine is just…Who does that?

    And the fact that he did not even think to save the picture makes sense when we consider in the first place his phone, and second the total absence of an internet presence from him. That’s almost unheard of these days for someone in his age in his society. Their interactions are cute though.

Why do I appreciate Ta Mi? Because she can reflect. Regardless of how she was at Unicon, at Barro she has come to realize the kind of person she is (or was), and that means she can change for the better.

This was Ga Gyeong’s episode, and finally I have developed an interest in her…It only took 9 episodes.

    Even before getting to the end, that scene when Tammy confronted her after the press conference made me feel sorry for her and people like her. No matter why she did it, I thought it a little unfair that Ta Mi threw in her face everything she’s done wrong in the past when Ga Gyeong said she might be trying to be just now. It reminded me of real life, where people find it so hard to change because others will not let them by constantly bringing up the past and throwing it in their faces.

    And then after the scenes with her in-laws, and her parents, my gosh her parents. I truly understand now what she means when she’s saying she wants to disappear. At least the last 10 years of her life have been what we saw at the beginning, with her just rolling over and doing what she’s told by her mother-in-law. It still does not excuse the disgusting trait she’s shown of harming innocent people, but at least now I understand her better. Her marriage is tragic though, because I think they were both good people who could have loved each other genuinely and been happy.

I’ve seen some beanies wishing for Brian as a boss, but – am I the only one who would not be able to function in that work environment? From day 1 Barro’s workplace just seemed too lax to me. I need structure. Although not as uptight as Unicon. 😂😂😂 Barro’s office space is VERY nice though.

WWW is the realest of real. I am so impressed by the content on episode 8. Maybe because that kind of conversation is the very first for me in a drama.

    I’ve said before that I like romcoms, but my own beliefs were different. I really enjoyed seeing Ta Mi and Morgan’s conversation about marriage because I can actually relate, and this is not something you see often not just in kdramas, but in television in general. People just expect marriage and family as a ‘normal’ part of human. I like what Cha Hyeon said about what’s ‘normal’ being such a human construct anyway.

    I can definitely see where Ta Mi is coming from regarding breaking up before things get serious – she and Mo-Gun have very different views on relationships. I guess it’s hard for her to find a like-minded individual she could be with, and Mo-Gun reminds me of so many people I know who think, ‘their mind will change.’ I feel Ta Mi’s loneliness that made her run to him in the end though. And honestly, even if she ends up being the one to change her mind in the end, I will still appreciate that the show explored this issue. Her mind can actually change, and that would be okay.

      I tentatively agree with you. As long as the show explored the issue, and didn’t make it seem like it was “normal” or “expected” of her to change her mind, I think that’s an acceptable outcome.

      1

        I would hope that they wouldn’t turn it into a ‘she realized the error of her ways situation.’ She said one of them would have to sacrifice, so as long as the show acknowledges that it is a sacrifice however they end up, I’d be okay with it. I think if you really love and want to be with someone and you WANT to sacrifice for them over breaking up, that’s okay.

    A woman who does not want to get married as the lead in a drama…has this happened before? Where? I so want to see this depicted again. And now I am very interested in knowing her reasons. I mean she broke off a relationship over it. I’m wowing in a very happy way.

WWW – I hadn’t really warmed up to Cha Hyeon (Scarlet) just yet because I take her issues with her anger management very seriously and the way she expresses is not healthy…

2
1

    But I finally find that I like her at work way more than I like Ta Mi. It’s like the two are the same but in different places – Ta Mi is violent and out there when it comes to her work – seriously she handles things so cold-bloodedly 😳 – and she is rational and level-headed in her personal life. Whereas Cha Hyeon is violent in her personal life, but very calm and avoidant of conflict at work. Her solutions to work issues are always the complete opposite of Ta Mi’s, and are a ‘cleaner’ way of handling things. Ta Mi will go to battle and draw blood, but Cha Hyeon will ask for peace talks at a table. I’m liking this…

    I keep wanting Ta Mi to sleep with Mo-Gun again, but only because they already did, I’m not usually so narrow minded – I swear! But I was reminded (reprimanded) that Ta Mi did not want her relationship to begin that way, so it makes sense that she now takes a step back and is going the way she would have wanted to (I will happily eat my words if this changes though 😂

I like regular romcoms because I enjoy seeing characters fall for each other, but I get bored towards the end once they’re actually together…

    I didn’t realize how much I would appreciate a more adult set-up. I really like how Ta Mi posed questions that really matter past the infatuation phase when she told Mo-Gun she wanted to be serious: do you have debt? (seriously, this is so real) Are you healthy? Do you have a criminal record?

I’m watching two dramas with a 10 year age gap between the leads – I didn’t blink at one and squinted my eyes at the other. Age does matter for me it turns out…

2
12

    With WWW I didn’t and still don’t mind the gap because I think WHERE the age gap is matters. At 28, you have lots of life to experience, but that’s a mature age I think. Mature enough to go out with someone 10 years old. In Somewhere Only We Know, one person is 21 and the other 31. This one I have a slight issue with because of the difference in life experience and maturity between those two specific ages. Much like 18 and 28 would also be an issue. It all depends on personalities in the end though. If the parties involved have the same maturity level, it works.

    10
    2

      This! It’s difficult for me to accept age gap in drama, especially when it set in modern times. But I don’t mind if one of them is older than 25 year old. 19 year old and 38 year like the OTP in Goblin is so wrong, not to mention that his real age is almost a thousand years old.

          Yes, you are right. But still I stand corrected with a potential romantic relationship between a high-schooler and 38 y/o ahjussi is not right.

            I usually feel the same but in Goblin’s case, they didn’t have a “grown-up” relationship until she was grown. They had that one serious kiss right before he “died”.

            I had more of an issue with the age gap in Mr.Sunshine.

        Edward Rochester was 36 when he met Jane. He made her fall in love with him madly and I can see why it could work. When 18 you love with dreamy eyes and are able to pardon all of those little things which drive you crazy when older. As older you get as more difficult and exigeant you become.

          It was different era. There were different expectations, opportunities and social norms for girls/women during Jane’s life time.

          Actually one of my favourite novels. You could say that because of her experiences Jane was more mature than women her age, even in her time.

      WWW is probably the first noona romance that hasn’t made me uncomfortable. The main reason is because Park Morgan is very mature.

      Right now in Mother of Mine Tae Ju is very immature compared to Mi Ri. I dislike it but I love Hong Jong Hyun and Kim So Yeon so I’m sticking it out. lol. My most hated noona romance is High School King of Savvy. The other is this drama where the couple was arranged but he is way older. She saw him dressed in hanbok and went crazy for him, not knowing who he was. I liked it but she continued to call him ahjusshi even after they married. It was off-putting and ruined it for me.

        I agree about WWW. But I don’t think it’s that he’s more mature than is usual for his age per se. I think he is more serious for and perhaps sure of himself for sure. But Ta Mi’s colleague is the one that seems a bit too immature for 28.

    I really liked their candid conversation – her saying her everyday life is ‘safe’ and he is not, and she makes a clear distinction between the two. Him admitting that he would prefer to be a part of that ‘safe’ everyday life of hers. And on a completely mind-in-the-gutter note, this guy has been trying so hard to be intimate with Ta Mi again – just out right proposition after proposition 😂😂😂. I definitely think he knew her before they ‘met.’

      This just gets better and better. I love that we (or I) as viewers were also kind of hostile to him at first, and that he didn’t really fit in the show and in Ta-mi’s life, but as he slowly makes his way into Ta-mi’s heart and in her life, he starts to become less jarring in show as well. Consequently viewers are also starting to warm up to him.

      This is very well done.

    When she took the money. Because honestly, I always think the poor candy should take the money when offered by the rich mother-in-law…Because she’s poor and the money never did anything wrong, and if it’s being offered, why not? But for Ta Mi I paused and just had to digest how I felt about that. And then they started smashing the car and I was laughing too hard to think about it – And then what Ta Mi did with the money afterwards was just…Wow…Wow 😲😂

        Exactly! And the chase was definitely funny. Especially seeing how Ta Mi was struggling to keep up and kept told Scarlett to go jump off the buildings to follow the guy 😂😂😂

          I also loved how Scarlett decided to use the smoke detector to break the equipment of the guy and then shield TaMi and herself from the shower using an umbrella. That scene was gorgeous and funny at the same time.

        I sound like a broken record because I’m saying this over and over again, but this episode was SO GOOD. Those two moments stole the show of course, but for once, I even liked the relationship between Ta-mi and Mo-gan, which I’ve been on the fence about until now. He came on way too strongly at first, but this episode was much better. Plus I don’t see why she can’t be a career woman, be strong, and yet have someone she relies upon during bad times. That he becomes someone important to her, because he was there during a bad time is also a story development that makes sense.

        So yeah – I’m very happy. hehehe

          YES TO ALL OF THAT. I liked episode 3 and 4 but it was way too calm unlike the premier episodes and then episode 5 came and we see woman supporting each other in Tammy, Jenny, and Scarlett! I loved the things Mo-gun did this episode and loved how Brian and Barro supported Tammy.

          That she can be vulnerable and need someone to rely is definitely realistic and I like that we saw her crying and sad because what was happening to her was horrific. No matter how strong she is, her reaction to it was very realistic. I feel like there’s some backstory with Mo-Gun though. He was so interested in her from the very beginning. Makes me wonder of they had met before and she does not remember.

          1
          1

            Yup – re Mo-gun I think so too. His interest in her is too… solid? .. for it to make sense without some sort of backstory.
