    Highly underrated actor!

    He needs to headline a melo all by himself……he is so good ……if they had cared to flesh his arc out with Tae Yi instead of whatever weird thing has been done with Jin Gyeom, it would’ve been so much better

      Agreed 💔 I’m holding out hope that we may yet get a father-son arc.

      He’s never stood out to me as a leading actor until this show. He was cute I suppose, but I love his intensity and burning passion he has in this show! I feel like he should’ve had a career like Jung Hae In, I could def. see him as the ML in Something In the Rain.

      He debuted quite late at 27/28 with a great performance in Night Flight which should’ve opened his career, but nothing happened :/ Maybe in 2 yrs? I hope he headlines a Channel A/JTBC Mature Romance Melo lol.

    KSY wasn’t ready to be a leading man, until Alice came along imo. This role shows his intensity and presence on-screen, despite his screen time. I almost wish that Alice was centered on Min-hyuk’s character instead. His look, style, role, and setting in Alice is by far is his most memorable and fitting role.

    I echo @gem28 point below! Comedy is not his strong suit, it’s actually Melo/drama!! IA, the love story other than parental love, should’ve been more focused on TY/MH!!

@turtuallysarcastic Something to whet your appetite: an epic OST.

I watched this drama for Mori but it’s also the drama that made me notice JDY. His character wasn’t that developed, but he did well.

    JDY always does well! In every show of his that I’ve seen — School 2017, Tale of Nokdu, and A Poem A Day — he has consistently impressed. It’s surprising as well since I don’t think he initially intended on becoming an actor, he doesn’t have any of the impressive acting pedigree others seem to have (didn’t study acting, didn’t start off in theatre, etc.), and is still relatively new. He’s a natural talent.

      He had a small part towards the end of MR. SUNSHINE too. Also impressive.

      I don’t know if I will ever have the guts to watch SOLOMON’S PERJURY, where I hear he was great. But I have DANCE SPORT GIRLS on my to-watch list.

    That OST sounds very Mori-like!😊 Watch Dance Sport Girls for a gem JDY! Park Se-Wan is also in it, so they reunite after being in ‘Mori school’ together.😀

DO YOU LIKE BRAHMS?

So, the novel AIMEZ-VOUS BRAHMS? was also turned into a film starring Ingrid Bergman. After reading this synopsis and review I don’t think I want to watch it, , but hey, at least the music’s great.

DO YOU LIKE BRAHMS?

It seems that the drama’s title is referring to the 1959 French best-seller novel by Françoise Sagan, AIMEZ-VOUS BRAHMS? I’ve never read it so I looked up a synopsis… so far it seems writer-nim has only borrowed the title and concept of love triangle (fortunately because I couldn’t handle the hard-core soap opera melo of the novel).

Thank you @siljie for the reference to this 2010 article: http://news.heraldcorp.com/view.php?ud=20100910000642&md=20100913104151_B

    The drama’s title could also be a nod to German composer, Johannes Brahms 🙂 Sort of like how “Weightlifting Fairy, Kim Bok Joo” made jokes and nods towards Lionel Messi, the Argentinean footballer (soccer player), as it was a sports drama 🙂

DYLB Ep. 8
Ending thoughts broadcast

Me to myself:

Ah, a rehearsal room is so romantic now!
Song-Ah caresses the piano keys like a YY heroine.
I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you.
Stop. I can’t think straight.
He leans in for the kiss.
I can almost hear Debussy.
Daylight is fading fast, it’s all getting hazy.
She takes a step back and SQUEAK.
The piano reminds them “I’m still here!”
I’m slightly dying of laughter too.
Blush. I can’t watch this.
Wait, is she sitting on the piano?
Shock. Horror. The musician inside me is dying a little.
I suppose the piano ships them too?
Blush some more.
Realisation hits.
This means 8 episodes of angst right?
Fade out.

If Joon-young channeled his frustration into his Rachmaninoff Prelude No. 5 he’d win any competition. What is Jung-kyung’s problem? @sincerelytod where are you?

I never did watch the whole video because I was too busy dying over the t*k comment.

But at the very end, he signed off by saying “HYUN BIN WITH THE BEAUTIFUL DIMPLES!” @yyishere and other dimple-loving beanies, you’ve made it as fans. The way he almost got the hiccups as he said it made him even more adorable. https://youtu.be/b1s6G2ZV_dM

      Me, too! I always feel like they’re both a little disappointed in their compliments somehow, but they’re so goofy together in all the promos they did for CLOY. Sometimes these videos are a bit stiff, but theirs were always fun to watch.

Episode 4 (00:24:00). Mendelssohn Piano Trio No. 1 in D Minor.

The trio we didn’t get to hear because of Jung-kyung *insert angry cat face* The marking “molto allegro et agitato” aptly represents the turmoil and breakdown of this friendship group: “very briskly and agitated”

    Here it is played by some amazing S. Korean artists (Pianist Eunyoo An, Violinist Jae Hyeong Lee and Cellist Hoon Sun Chae of the Lux Trio who are one of the best trips in the world right now, winning several awards). https://youtu.be/kOESuw9deag

Episode 4 (00:14:00). Bach Minuet in G minor.

It used to be attributed to J.S. Bach because it’s in the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach. One of the most popular pieces for beginner students, the fact that Jung-kyung’s grandmother struggles with it shows us that, as she said, she has had little musical training.

Here played by pianist Lang Lang: https://youtu.be/35zbDdK-kwk

      @mindy @csmith But I got 20 upvotes! Some people agreed with me LOL.

      Actually, at this point in the drama I was fully on board Ji-ho’s plight in navigating this marriage contract. I didn’t completely and utterly fall for Se-hee until Episode 7-8, this scene in particular:

        I can hear the sound of him hitting the pavement in my brain, OMG

        Toki, I have a very specific memory of both of us mentioning, after poor Se-hee rolled on the ground, that we both thought, “Oh, Lee Min-ki has a nice head of hair” 😂

        @wishfultoki I was right there with you on my first watch. I kept wondering, “what’s up with this guy. And I remember having a moment when it hit me, “Oh! He’s really handsome. And he has been all along.” But, I think I fell for him a bit earlier than this. When he said the wedding dress suited her better than he expected. Something about it just got me. Maybe it reminded me of the totally awkward complements my husband gave me when we first just “some.” I guess I fall for the smooth talkers…

          @csmith Oh yes, I definitely saw his appeal at the wedding, um even before (recycling is swoony fight me). But when he held Ji-ho’s hand and looked at her so warmly… *melts* After the wedding he drew the line at some things and I was confused I think (like Ji-ho). Episode 9, trashing the motorcycle and saying “let’s go home” (I died when he offered his hand) was the definitive deal-breaker moment for me . I knew I was going to protect this guy from anything (as much as you can protect a fictional character 😭)… I think it was Episode 9, am I remembering it right @mindy?
