Beanie level: Eunuch in drag

SeoWoo crying by herself broke my heart. 💔

    SAME! One of the things that irks me the most about romance dramas is when there’s a couple but they still use “ssi” to refer to each other.

Loved all the hugs 🤗🤗🤗
Could we not have had one more kiss?💋

    I did too! I loved that they slept together in the last episode. That was cute. I also love how much Ha-won has changed over the course of this drama and how much he’s come to love Seo-woo. And the Eun-joo Homestay characters? AH-mazing.

    I have some lingering questions, though. For example, why did that other character leave the homestay when she found out Chang-sub was dating Eun-joo? Why did she come back after Chang-sub got kicked out?

    2

      I think she left because she felt betrayed by Eunjoo. I’m not quite sure, but I felt like the conflict was related to their friendship and not really to Changseob. They probably would have explored it more IF WE DIDNT GET A 4 EPISODE CUT.

      I have so many questions and thoughts and wishes.

      I wonder if they jettisoned kisses because of the COVID-19 situation.

        More kisses would have been nice. There was so much hugging, though, that I doubt the forbearance from kissing had to do with COVID.

I loved the tenderness and warmth 🥰 BUT I was underwhelmed with their interaction for the first time. I think the cuts are having an impact! 🙁

    You know, I shat on this soundtrack a lot in the first week, but now I love it. This song, “Rain or Shine” by Elain, and “Slowly Fall” by Ha Hyunsang have done a great job framing the mood of this show.

    Also, a complete digression, but how many different coats does Ha-won have? This episode introduced yet another long coat. Is that what he spends his money on? LOL

      I’ve given up on trying to make sense of cost usage in kdramas. In almost all of them the characters have so many. SeoWoo to wears like a coat a day. In real life normal people wear one coat for several winters…kdrama characters wear a lift time of coats in a few days!

Episode 10 was full of emotions…I need some powerful healing. Can I get a hug from Jung Hae In too?
🤔😉

    If Jung Hae-in is giving out hugs, can I get one, too? Where do I line up?

    It’s so fascinating how my opinion of Ha-won has gone through a complete 180 degree switch. First three episodes, I was like, “This guy is deeply unwell and also sort of hard to connect to.” Now I love this character and I was so sad for him throughout this episode, although especially near the end. I also felt for Seo-woo, who was wrestling with the difficult dilemma about whether to tell Ha-won or not (and she showed herself loyal to him in the end, when she refused to work with In-wook and when she pushed Soon-ho to tell Ha-won). My one anxiety for this couple is about how Ha-won will react to Seo-woo’s initial decision not to tell Ha-won about the letter. I hope it doesn’t cause problems for them.

      Yeah. Lots of knotty problems. From the hug at the end it looked like they will talk. She was crying and it did seem like he knew she knew about what had happened just not all the particulars. I hope that’s the route they go instead of bringing her taking AI JiSoo or not telling about the letter as a dramatic problem between these two. I have loved this drama because it hasn’t had a lot of angst between the couple so far and I hope they finish the drama that way.
      Maybe I’m in the minority but I never felt HaWon was weird. He came across as focused, curious, logical and warm — apart from the JiSoo bad habit. I adore SeoWoo and love HaWon and SeoWoo together.

      3
      1

        I think in the first few episodes (especially the first two), the obsession with Ji-soo was overpowering and it made it difficult for me to feel anything other than confusion and pity for him. I agree, though, that he’s otherwise a good character – as you noted, he’s kind, logical, and inquisitive, and most of all he’s a lovely and devoted man who cares a lot for Seo-woo.

        I agree. One of things I like about this couple is how they provide each other comfort over their respective pasts. It would be a horrible shame if this stuff broke the trend and became a wedge between them.

    Ha-won’s pain near the end of the episode felt so tangible.

      It was even more heartbreaking that the pain was because of SoonHo..I hope they can make up. Two episodes is too short…

        I was thinking the same thing. It’s horrible that Soon-ho caused him so much pain. The girl needs to pick her friends and choose her loyalties better.

        This show deserves four more episodes beyond the two next. It’s such a shame it’s been cut short. I would have loved seeing more cuteness between Ha-won and Seo-woo.

Only three more episodes to go. I’m sad because I was enjoying the slow pace and all those lovely moments between HaWon and SeoWoo. Like the stair case scene! Now we are going to be rushed.

    The staircase scene while In-wook was playing the piano? I agree! I find all there moments together so sweet. It’s like watching an old school romance – something from the 1960s or something (okay, maybe not that far back). I loved how they held hands in this episode, how she sang (badly) for him, and how just watched her so adoringly as she comforted him. I wish we had 4 more episodes of this lovely cuteness.

      From the previews it looks like we get a kiss in the next episode. For the first time in drama watching I felt like the kiss is coming too soon. I wanted to watch these two slowly take their time and bond and heal and talk and walk for at least one more episode. In these hectic times the gentle pace has been so lovely.

After watching episode 9, my opinion of Kim JiSoo has gone from neutral to negative. She seems to have only thought of HaWon after she heard about InWook and HaWon’s mother and started feeling guilt.

2

    It appears that she was happy to not be in touch with HaWon or worry about him till InWook tod her about his mistake. Then she writes letters to Counsel Moon saying all sorts of nonsense and that she misses HaWon. I’m side eyeing this quiet a bit 🙄

    2
    1

      I had the same thought! I thought Ji-soo was a psycho before this episode, but now I’m even more frustrated with her. However, I did end up understanding why she was so torn up about what her husband did. I thought it might be something innocent or forgivable. Instead, it turned out to be way worse than I thought and motivated by ill-will towards Ha-won (whom I absolutely adore at this point).

      2
      1

        Yeah, the mistake was way worse that what I had imagined. I was also surprised that it was an intentional lie rather than a honest mistake. Also, InWook wasn’t a child when it happened, he was 18. So I can understand JiSoo’s pain. I’m conflicted by InWook’s story arc. I feel for SoonHo. She deserves happiness, can the show pair her with KimHoon who I’m liking quiet a bit or just make her not be sad. 🤞🏽

    HAHAHAHA I love this! And how she’s like – why aren’t you eating the soup? does it taste bad? And he just drinks it like a puppy

      Honestly, he’s a puppy with everything that even tangentially touches Seo-woo. What a cutie!

      2

        I loved the way he said “Rubbish” to one of SeoWoo’s hundred reasons. I think he got on EunJoo good side with that. 😊

        1

          I wonder if he knew what Seo-woo was talking about. I like to think he did, which would mean his feelings for Seo-woo have possibly eclipsed his (romantic) feelings for Ji-soo.

          1
          1

            I think he did. I’ve always maintained that his romantic interest in JiSoo was pretty much dead by the time he met SeoWoo. JiSoo was a bad habit. JiSoo was his support system in a strange land and during a really tough time and I feel that he felt a sense of obligation to ensure she was happy. He only keeps obsessing about why she was not happy and seems concerned that her unhappiness was due to him. These are fairly normal thoughts for a childhood friend/first love. Also the relationship with JiSoo seems very unbalanced with HaWon giving a lot. With SeoWoo the dynamic is completely different and a lot more balanced. As they bother said it’s mutual. I hope their mutual love gets them through the tough times ahead.

        At least what I’ve learned from this drama is that JHI is a puppy. Period. hahahaha

The most frustrating was the notion that Yuri can hang out with KH and SW only in the absence of MinJung! The show championed the idea of second wives and stepmoms being replaceable! Sigh! 😒

6

    Hmmm.. Minjeong will always be Seo-woo’s mom. I didn’t see it as her being replaceable. She said so herself, she wants Ganghwa to do a goob job letting Yuri go. It would be super awkward for her to be there during the trip because that was Yuri’s place with her friends and to say goodbye to them.

    If anything, I thought the drama showed Minjeong being the mom for Seo-woo even though she didn’t give birth to her. Even Yuri acknowledged that fact. She even took out the books at the kindergarten that painted stepmoms as evil.

      I think we are going to agree to disagree. I don’t believe in the whole “it’s Yuri’s place”. The show/writers spent all that time establishing a friendship between MinJung and Yuri so why would it be awkward for her to be around them. I’ve always been frustrated with how the show made it seem like Yuri or her family couldn’t be around MinJung. Maybe it’s a cultural thing but in this day and age behaving like MinJung doesn’t exist is what is awkward. Why is Yuri saying bye involve pretending that Yuri, KangHwa, and SeoWoo are a family unit without MinJung. If it had been one outing I can understand but essentially the way the show portrayed Yuri’s last few days is that MinJung just disappears. KangHwa was quick to take of his wedding ring too. The show could have been so much more if they had treated MinJung’s character with respect from the beginning. Yuri’s mom was the only one who showed any respect for MinJung. Every other character mostly behaved as if MinJung was a obstacle for 15 episodes and how because of her Yuri can’t take her place and live. In the 16th episode we learn that if Yuri stays then SeoWoo can’t stop seeing ghosts and that’s why Yuri can’t live! So why make MinJung the bad guy. Why make KangHwa and HyungJung say stuff like “you can take your place” as if MinJung was just holding Yuri’s place. It was so frustrating. Yuri’s place is Yuri’s place MinJung never took Yuri’s place and Yuri can never take MinJun’s place. Human beings are not replaceable. Argh! It was so frustrating.

        I mean you have friends you just don’t mix together. The camping trip was for her to say goodbye to Hyunjeong.

        I also have a problem with the rules they set up for her coming back to.life because they didn’t stick to it and really, what’s the point when we got lied to anyway? I didn’t like what they did to Minjeong’s character either. It looked like they all just bullied her.

        4
        1

          That’s what was frustrating. The drama was all over the place. HyungJung was supposedly MinJung’s friend too. Why did they spend like three episodes setting up that friendship? It was also frustrating that HyungJung never had any remorse towards MinJung. I know! I know! She said sorry but her sorry and for that matter Yuri’s apology were perfunctory at best.

          There were so many inconsistencies and so many mixed messages from the show. Reading comments on the last few episodes with folks talking about Yuri being the original wife & mother and MinJung should step aside. It was disappointing and more than a little distasteful. I had such hopes for this drama.

            It seems like the writer got affected by comments because most naver comments want Yuri and Ganghwa together which doesn’t really make sense. Coz I mean, she’s dead. But yeah. I dont understand why people would want those to together and discard Minjung.

    I was hoping by the end, they would’ve explained to Seo Woo that Yu Ri is her birth mom, but MJ will always be her mom too. And then they bring MJ to see Yu Ri’s family so that they can establish it’s perfectly fine for the family to be together even after she’s gone. The lot even have their goodbyes together.

    Instead we got Kang Hwa telling Seo Woo in her freaking sleep about the mom and Kang Hwa never fighting for MJ but they somehow still end up not divorcing. And all the other ghosts plotline was just abandoned and they went up in a jiffy despite having fought Midongdaek for years. *big sigh*

      The way you laid out makes more sense to me. Essentially the show could have portrayed Yuri spending her 49days actually doing the things she came to do – protect SeoWoo, her her family and friends to move on, help the other ghosts. Instead we had 15 episodes of mostly “Sad KangHwa” and “the second wife is in Yuri’s place” and one episode to do all the things Yuri said she was there to do. They didn’t even show her father and sister learning about her leaving and they get to say goodbye in essentially one picnic!

      The first paragraph is exactly what should have happened.

      I know many didn’t like the plotline with all of the other ghosts, but I did, and I don’t like how they had Yuri promise to grant them one wish and then dropped it like two episodes later.

There were many unbelievable things in Hi!Bye!Mamma, the most unbelievable though was that SeoWoo, a six year old, perfectly understood that Yuri is also her mom and was able to say “Bye Mom”

    I find it more amazing that she was supposed to not know all this time when they all kept talking around her and Yu-ri’s been around her for 5 years saying stuff like Mom’s here. Kids are smart.

      Either way makes no sense to me. After weeks of it being about “Sad KangHwa” they pivoted time SeoWoo and spent most of the episode talking about how MinJung is SeoWoo’s favorite person and her mom. Then the last 5 minutes was a six year old who is supposedly super attached to her mom hanging out with a bunch of folks without her mom. Even if all of that is believable, I can’t believe that SeoWoo understood enough to calmly say bye to Yuri who has now been her mom for a handful of days. Yikes!

      2

        It’s because they wasted so much time on unnecessary stuff and just assumed everyone would understand how Seowoo gets it. I wished Seowoo talked more tbh because we honestly don’t know much about what’s in her mind.

If there was a show that could have benefited from a (at minimum) four episode cut that would be Hi! Bye! Mama.
What a mess!

Not only is A piece of your mind a warm shows that gets you in the feels, it is making me interested in all the AI projects they talk about. I never thought a K-drama can be a gateway to AI…🤔

Kim MinJung’s story in A Piece Of you Mind made me cry 😢 Hope the show ends with her finding peace…

    I think she’ll develop a kind of motherly relationship with Eun-joo. I hope that’s what happens.

      Also, I think there’s going to be some link with the resident doctor, who overheard Ha-won listening to Minjung’s voice on the device.

      From what I understood I think she had some relation with her or her mother in the past, or I am making this up?
