Like the passive aggressive kind - hey, at least Se Ah is upfront about it! Something went really wrong with Hyun Hee- either the acting, the writing or both I suspect both. Another thing that irks me about her character is that it never really seemed like she and Jang Mi were close friends, and yet every time they talk Hyun Hee guilt trips her and needles her as if she has an inalienable right to know everything about her life.
Speaking of which, where are Jang Mi's actual friends? Does she not have any? I feel kinda bad for her character if that's the case HH is irritating alright, n it's not the acting. The actress is just fine in her other roles: Let's Eat and Wild Chives. HH is insincere, manipulative n a user. She pretends to be close to JM, and silly JM totally buys it. She pretends to be close to JM to get close to her rich BF.
All she wants is to marry money. Now she is pretending to go away, allowing ppl to worry that she might be in danger. Heaven knows, she might have faked that pregnancy tester! No, you're certainly NOT alone. When she gets preggo I thought, "well…didn't you ask for it, you rapist you? Not so much. And I think it really isn't helped by the actress that just brings all kinds of boring reactions.
Which also gets me to Se Ah. I'm sure it's because I just hate how manipulative this character is…but when ever the actress just lays there tanning I keep on thinking "ugh…she's so pretentious.
I can't blame JM for not seeing through it, KT had to point out his mother's ways to her after all, but I hope JM does realise how manipulative HH is before the end of the drama. I am going to sound heartless right now, but i really don't want Hyun-hee to end up with the other dude. He doesn't deserve it.
She raped him, he was drunk therefore could not give consent, he doesn't like her yet , i would feel bad for him to end up with her just because of a baby is cruel. He was horrible in the beginning but I don't think this is a punishment he deserves. I suspect that they are not going to end up together romantically because he clearly doesn't like her and I never felt that her feelings for him were sincere but they're probably going to use this baby thing as an impetus for him to grow up and stop clowning around and being supremely childish and cowardly as he's been shown to be so far.
As for HyunHee, well, we really don't know anything about her or her motivations seriously I don't even understand what the point of her character is? so I can't say how this will affect her. At first I thought she was just looking for a Sugar Daddy and with the baby thing, you'd think she's succeeded but she seems to be genuinely upset that Hoon Dong doesn't care about her so I don't really know what her deal is.
I don't understand what could have made her develop real feelings for Hoon Dong given that she's pretty much only seen negative sides to him and he initially seemed to be using her to distract him from his break up with Jang Mi.
Hyun hee is the least sympathetic character. She went after Hoon dong even though he was a cad to Jang Mi knowing about their failed relationship and taking advantage raping Him while drunk. There are certain lines you do not cross if you are a friend. She did so and he hasn't really paid attention to her since. She has guilt trip Jang Mi so I hope she doesn't use the baby to entrap Hoon dong.
Admittedly, he was a jerk, but he shouldn't be treated like that. Really, the baby is her problem, not his. Always thought HH was the weirdest and very manipulative with her interactions.
at first she was supportive of jang mi but after that it seems she did everything in order to get with hoon.. seems like she wanted hoon to meet jang mi at the mall in order for jang mi to completely reject him.. she knew that jang mi had lost feelings but use it as an excuse to get closer to hoon.. hoon is my 3rd favorite character being jm and kt.. He is honest and loyal.. even when he was drunk he already knew where talks with women go..
where are we.. what r we.. He is jus a guy that likes to have fun and not take things seriously but people bag on him for that.. He has never lie bout not wanting to jus be loose and fun but both times jm and HH wants something deeper. I agree with all you have said about him, but he also needs to wrap it. If you are going to play, you have to 1 keep yourself and future partners free from STDs and 2 HELLLLO BABIES alway happen from sex on dramas.
Doesn't he know that? That reminds me Gong KiTae better not get dead drunk in front of Se Ah. just let his Alcohol-Buddy be JangMi it looks like she can hold her liquor better than him too. Yes, please let this be the starting point of the next part of the drama where no meddling second leads are in play and our couple are free to be together.
This episode, while it had its funny moments courtesy of Hoon-dong, surprisingly had me so confused. When they all went to the beach together, I had to ask myself, "Did they all get brain transplants or something?
And then not give a shit about her best friend whose character is also befuddling--am I supposed to like her, feel sorry for her? It kind of goes to show that Jang-mi, whose character has been depicted as an over emotional romantic whose feelings are the foundation of her life, is all of a sudden loosey goosey and unaffected by these people.
Or maybe inconsistent writing? It was nice to be away from the parents, I guess, but then it made me realize how underdeveloped these characters are. I still don't understand how Yeo-reum is no longer Mr. Mysterious-Because-Mom-Left-Me-Broken-Hearted because I don't believe Jang-mi is that much of an influence in his life. I don't understand Se-ah, period. Trying to rape the guy you love is not the way to get him or his progeny. Just saying. You could just not be a manipulative bitch?
Hyeon-hee is confusing too. I would feel sorry for her if she'd been a better friend to Jang-mi. But then I actually do feel sorry. Hoon-dong is funny, but I expected him to be major player and not just the comic relief since he seemed important in the beginning. In any case, I like him more than the other secondary characters if only because I don't have the urge to throw something at my screen when he shows up.
As for Ki-tae and Jang-mi, thank you for finally kissing for real. I was getting fed up with his passiveness and her wishy-washiness. But I have to admit, it doesn't feel awesome like it should because this really should've happened earlier. I agree that the last few episodes have been circling around the same plot line, so much so I'm only left feeling frustrated that the drama is falling behind where it should be. I don't mean such harsh words for this drama, but it's only 'cause it was so good in the beginning.
So now is the time to make up for the last few episodes, Show! Edit: I forgot that Hyeon-hee basically raped Hoon-dong, so then I don't feel sorry for her situation. I agree with you. It seems that this drama is losing it's magic because of how the characters are being portrayed.
I also feel that the 6 characters hanging out on the beach and having fun was a bit unrealistic. I'm hating the secondary characters even more except for Hoon Dong and Yeo Reum. As much as I want Jang Mi and Gi Tae to start dating for real, I'm feeling sorry for Yeo Reum. I think that he really likes Jang Mi and maybe he's not the most expressive or "deep" character probably due to bad acting or writing but I have to give him credit for putting up with Jang Mi's fake relationship with Gi Tae.
As for Jang Mi, I wish that the next episodes will at least show character growth. It's frustrating to see her being pushed around by everyone. I love that she has spunk and is able to say what's on her mind when she sees someone being wronged but what I can't understand is why she can't speak for herself when she is in a similar situation.
I think that of all the characters in this drama, Gi Tae has shown character growth. Now he is realizing that there's another option to living alone, that he can be happy by being with the right partner. I am really hoping that now Gi Tae and Jang Mi have discovered their true feelings will get more scenes of them being cute as a real couple.
I don't think YR has gone on a real date w JM. He keeps trying, they keep making dates, but then sth with GT or his mom would come up, and he's left waiting. Looks like GT is cock-blocking him and JM. I know, I know, they r not the OTP, so it doesn't count. I guess I'm weird since I'm not bothered by these things. Jang-mi is strong but she also likes to please people so I'm not surprised at all that she gets walked over repeatedly. Come on, she was totally walked over by Dong-hoon in the beginning of the drama which should already tell us what kind of a person she is.
She can tell a person to get lost if she doesn't care about that person but once there's any sort of connection or sympathy, she will bend. I don't think she has changed but rather that this is who she IS and that she needs to change from this like Girlfriday wrote in the previous recap. When it comes to Se-ah, come on, why would you believe what she babbles about the baby. She's not exactly a reliable narrator now, is she.
It's clear from her reactions to Ki-tae's rejection of her that what she really wants is HIM. Yes, Se-ah is not even pretending it would be accident but that doesn't negate the final goal: Ki-tae himself. I'm pretty sure she's used to manipulating Ki-tae during their relationship so that is her solution now also.
And she knows she can team up with mom, too. Imagine if they really would have a kid and then Se-ah would go to his parents and say "hey, look, this is your grandchild! What a pity his parents aren't married I feel actually sorry for Ki-tae's mom for teaming up with Se-ah, because even though she's a master manipulator and martyr herself, if Se-ah would marry Ki-tae, mom would lose him.
As Ki-tae says, they're similar and while they have the same goal they can work well together but at some point there would be friction and as Ki-tae's wife Se-ah would easily best his mom. Also, for Ki-tae not reacting more assertively to Se-ah crazy stunts, I think that us understandable. He cares for her a lot - they almost married, after all and they had been friends long even before that and stayed friends afterwords.
He doesn't want to hurt her. I used to have a friend who did more and more crazy things and I let it go on for MONTHS before finally putting my foot down simply because I did not want to hurt him and tried to understand him. We often avoid confrontation as much as we can. I wonder why Ki-tae would continue to keep someone like Se-ah in his life, friend or not.
A broken engagement would change relationships, and I couldn't imagine being cordial with my ex-fiance especially if it came to a nasty and abrupt end like with Se-ah and Ki-tae. I could buy their friendliness--if their characters were different. But like what girlfriday says, no one is calling Se-ah out on her crazy bullshit, and that is something I can't get past.
As I said, it took for me MONTHS to call out my friends on his crazy antics. I was the last man standing because he was my friend and I wanted to be loyal and support him. So this really happens. And just like you I wouldn't want to be friends with my ex but a lot of people do. So I'm quite fine with this and I can see why they are still friends. Se-ah has been Ki-tae's friend for a looong time so it's understandable that he didn't want to ditch her completely after the break up, also, because he didn't want to hurt her any more than necessary.
Se-ah, on the other hand, clearly just went back how it used to be and I would argue that she thought that she could still keep Ki-tae for herself. Even if he didn't marry her, at least he would not marry anyone else, either and so he would be hers in some way at least. They are also colleagues and worked together on volunteer projects. THAT part of their relationship may be what kept them near each other, too. I don't buy that he was the best choice for her breast implants.
What female would want her present or ex do that? At his age, he certainly can't be the most experienced. I agree completely with what you said about Ki-tae's reaction to Se-Ah. It wasn't so much him being weak-willed and unassertive as it was him trying to be considerate of her and what she used to mean to him.
I know she's bat-shit crazy, but they shared a relationship and it's probably hard for him to see someone he once loved stooping to this level. While I am creeped out by Se-Ah, I find myself, first and foremost, just finding her to be really really sad. And I think rather than being angry with her, he just finds her really sad and doesn't want to hurt her.
I also think that him not pushing SeAh away goes with his character because he's not really confrontational. He only really blows up when he's really, truly backed into a corner. He prefers to deal with things by ignoring them or distancing himself from them like with his parents and he has been keeping his distance from SeAh for the most part. She's the one who keeps showing up out of the blue and trying to worm her way back into his life.
I think he assumed that if he just didn't go along with the baby thing, she would eventually drop it. That's why he was so stunned by the lengths she was willing to go in this episode.
Like he knew she was manipulative but to this extent? And about something that's so serious and life-changing? That's just crazy. And even here, when he finally rejects her, he can't even bear to say anything.
He just shakes his head and leaves but he squeezes her shoulder to let her know that he isn't rejecting her completely. He still wants to be considerate of her even when she's done something this inconceivable. I think Se-Ah just want some kind of connection with Gi Tae and what better way to be tied to him forever than to have his child.
I think she knows it's over between them. Arawn, I understand your sentiments on how Ki Tae reacted with Se Ah's advances and I completely agree that he probably doesn't want to hurt her feelings, which is fine. But remember that regardless of how Ki Tae treats her, Se Ah will still end up hurt in the long run. It takes a LOT for people to call out those who are dear to them.
We have no personal relationship with Se-ah so for us it's easy: why doesn't he just tell her to bugger off! But Ki-tae truly cares for Se-ah and so he doesn't want to hurt her which causes him to try to just ignore or brush off her crazy stunts. He finally rejects her only when he has left with no other choices but submission or rejection. I assume that if Se Ah is talking, she has an angle. That fake-contrite "apology" "I really did want to help you" was chilling.
I kept wondering if she practices those insincere things in the mirror like a proper sociopath - because I think the only legitimate expression we see on her is frustration that she didn't get her way. Apparently, the answer is Because in ep 10 we see her doing something very similar. was so happy when the episode came out, but as you stated everything seems to be falling in place, and it seems to be heading towards the typical dramaland clichés..
enjoyed the interactions between Ki-tae and Yeo-reum.. never laughed so much when Ki-tae put his shirt back on.. Still trying to figure out what Se-Ahs deal is.. not sure what exactly is wrong with the character they are trying to portray.. the show seems kind of lost on Hoon-dong.. although it was good to see him standing up for his friend.. In the end I hope Jang-mi stays true to the character that she has been in the first episodes.. as it was quite refreshing and I hope the writers keep providing us with some zany comedic fun..
something outside the square~!! The fact that Ki Tae may have gone through with it had Jang Mi's phone not interrupt makes me lose a little respect for him. But not as much as Se Ah, who is turning into a nutcase. Just because Hyun Hee got pregnant the first time she slept with Hoon Dong does not mean she will get pregnant the first time she sleeps with Ki Tae. So is she planning to lock him in a hotel room until she succeeds? The ending was rather contrived to give our couple forced alone time.
They were lost in the mountains; how did they expect Yeo Reum to walk his way out of the maze back to the guesthouse? No wonder he caught them kissing, he must have realized his task was impossible.
I could not understand at first why Jang Mi was itching for her turn in the Truth Game because personally, I hate being picked for Truth Or Dare, but as soon as she spilled the beans about their fake engagement, I was like, "Eureka.
Love the OST by Ben. Are these fake-out opening scenes going to be a thing now? Today's foretelling reminded me of Reply , like who is Shi Won's husband? as for gi tae, i guess why i really like this drama is that each character has gaping flaws.
usually only the male lead is arrogant but apart from that he's perfect and can be cured by love. but the characters in this drama are like real humans. gi tae with desire, hyeon hee with sexual frustration?
Whoa so fast GF!!! I dont mind a good cliche. All the romcoms ive watched ended up having the cliches by the second half cough, reply but i still like them. True that ep 7 and 8 were a bit of a letdown feels draggy and all but we get to see jangmi's hidden feelings and all. I get that she was supposed to be outgoing but i guess sometimes you just want to be complimented so badly you momentarily fall into the sad candy category. Totally understandabe for jangmi, whos been through so much.
Plus to me she still doesnt feel like a doormat, she probably has too much affection for gitae's mom that she unconsciously try to to always please her. I felt a bit awkward when they were critiquing Jang Mi's nose for plastic surgery. I know Han Groo's nose is not petite and kind of on the bulbous side but I really like her nose. It's what makes her.. Like SIG and his eyes. Thanks for the super prompt recap, girlfriday! I was not expecting it to be up so soon! I cannot wait until the next episode because I hope the trend from this point on will be more scenes with just the OTP.
I distinctively remember that for one of the drama reviews here, you guys said that the particular leads had so much chemistry you could watch them underwater basket-weave for hours and that would be just fine. The screen just lights up with every scene that involves the two of them. I had not really seen either actors in anything before this drama, but I think I can honestly watch them watching a cake rise and I'd still be happy. Yes, this! tats why i feel like punching the screen every time the other characters appeared.
i felt so irritated that i have actually stopped watching and start reading recaps, well at least until i see less secondary characters and co in the screen caps.
Tat is how much i love the OTP, keke.. Thanks for the recap GF. And thank you for calling out GT no being too slow on pushing SA off. I get not wanting to hurt her but when someone is this crazy nice is not going to work. Totally agree with your comments here's hoping. Haha, while I was watching the raw version of ep. I think Yeo Reum and Jin Woo should do a "walk-off" like in Zoolander. lol Cha Seung Won should be the judge.
I was really worried that KiTae was going to just go along with SeAh's plan for a minute there and if he had, I think I might have stopped watching the show. There would just be no coming back from that. Like SeAh is clearly crazy and SO messed up but I also feel bad for her because she's desperate and lonely and it's really sad that it's easier for her to go through these elaborate lengths to try to be with KiTae when all this time she could have just told him that she still loves him and she always loved him and she never wanted them to break up.
I feel like everyone on this show needs real therapy - there is so much repression and desperation and loneliness and they are all dealing with it in such unhealthy ways. I do feel like SeAh's character would not be out of place in a makjang drama but I can see how she fits in here too because truthfully, she might be crazy but so is KiTae for being willing to come up with such an elaborate ruse to force his mother to leave him alone and stop trying to marry him off and furthermore so is his mother who is so angry and bitter and unhappy in her own life.
I think the last two episodes really showed not just how manipulative his mother can be but also how trapped and angry she feels about the life that she's been living and essentially feels stuck in.
Even though I know that she was trying to drive JangMi away by making things hard for her but honestly, nothing that she said the expectation that she'll quit her job and just have babies and be a housewife; the fact that what she wants is no longer important and she has to focus on keeping up appearances and submitting to everyone else's desires is unusual for a daughter-in-law of a rich family.
And honestly you could see the bitterness and the hate that she has for her own life there. I feel like KiTae's mother is quietly seething that her life has come to this and on top of that, her husband is stepping out on her and doesn't show her even half the attention he shows his mistress. But she just has to grin and put up with it because that's what's expected of her as a lady of this caliber. I would love for this show to end with KiTae's parents getting divorced and his mother going on a journey of self-discovery and working on all of the issues that spending her life as a martyr who stuffs her feelings down and wraps herself in a cocoon of coldness and propriety has left her.
And I wish JangMi's parents would stop fighting for two seconds so they could decide if they actually still want to be together and if not, then get divorced! It drives me crazy that her mother just keeps divorce papers in their restaurant just waiting to be signed. How is that healthy?! Is there any wonder that their daughter has a warped, unhealthy view of relationships and that she has such a hard time understanding how she should be treated in a relationship?
Oh man, it got cut off. Continued - I wanted KiTae to take that opportunity to just TALK to JangMi about how they feel and see if they're on the same page. This is not the time to kiss her. She is not in the right frame of mind for that. This is just a pet peeve I have with male leads in dramas in general though. I really want these characters to take a page out of the Witch's Romance play book and just have an honest discussion about where their heads are at so that they know where they stand and then they could decide how to proceed with their families and the fake engagement afterwards.
Why is it so hard for people to just talk about things? Anyway, that being said, I still like this drama. It definitely has its cute and funny moments still - loved them all playing around in the water - and I'm excited to see how things progress now that there are real feelings on both sides. I knew that this was how Ki Tae would demonstrate his intentions, because he doesn't trust words. Would you, if you lived with the mother who said one thing but did another?
Se Ah does it, too - in KT's world, words are a way to manipulate, and they're never what's true. Only actions matter. That's why Ki Tae was vulnerable to all of the touching between him and Jang Mi, and why her kiss completely undid him. Maybe they should join the cast of it's Okay, it's Love, no shortage of therapy needing people there. ayooo am so happy with this drama. Despite the bat-crazy second leads, and sicko "best friend.
I interpreted the family meeting differently. Ki Tae allowed it to happen because he's at a different place with his feelings. He is trying to make their relationship a reality so meetings with the in-laws fit right in line.
As far as Se-Ah, her methods show she's nuttier than squirrel crap but I think there's potential to legitimize the crazy. In this episode she tells ki tae he knows why the baby has to be his. Well we, the viewers, don't know why. The writer could attempt to make that into something rather than the character fitting the typical psycho-second lead lady. If it were only about a baby, she could have moved on to YR already! That's obviously a good gene pool.
Well, maybe except for the brains :. Yes, Se Ah, and Yeon Hee has lame characters. But, I dont think they prolong the situation too much. In vice versa, I think the timing is perfect. If they all 6 do not go on holidays together, Jang Mi will not realized her feelings towards Ki Tae. When we live virtually, eventually we cant differentiate between reality and imagination.
It feels just like me. I watched dramas too much, sometimes i'm too lazy to go back to reality. So you suspect that there is more to her cryptic "YOU know why it has to be yours. Some genetic thingamabob? That's the surface answer that she wants KT to arrive at - but I think the real answer is that it's a way to keep him under her thumb for the rest of his life. I like SA, purely because her motive is totally new.
I've never seen that in a drama before! Lingering feelings are in nearly every drama that I've watched. But thanks again girlfriday, love all your recaps :D. I just want to know how Yeo Reum managed to run back to get Hoon Dong on foot after they spent so much time lost in the woods, in a car.
I like to think there's actually a resort parking lot right off camera that they've just spent hours driving around. It's too bad all the whiplash twists in the story for this episode took away from the payoff.
They'll just have to make it up by kissing more later, I think. Kt mom is starting to become a whole new low for me.. first it was refreshing and intriguing ti see how she goes about her business but with her interactions with jm mom and after words out of the bridal shower..
it jus seem so robotic and mechanical.. how does jm mom not see thay she is manipulating her.. even while explaining things about kt relationship with seha u can tell there was no sympathy or remorse.. people are not that calm under pressure so u should be able to feel that the mother had set this up.. jm mom seems to ignore the facts in front of her since she wants the son but there was nothing happy or constructive about kt mom while talking bout jm..
If someone talk bout my kid like that I would go off.. I would wonder does she even like my child since everything coming out of her mouth are insults.. This actress seem refreshing from hotel king and now this but it jus seems like she is a one truck pony.. All she does is keep a stoic face and nothing more. It is not a disease but rather an incomplete closure of tissue of the human embryo during gestation. I like that scene because it makes JM sees KT in a different light; "ah He is not a complete jerk ".
Okay so I totally enjoy Marriage not Dating despite every weird stuffs that came along. I just don't get it why the heck Se ah wanted to impregnanted by Gi tae so badly when she knew Gi tae doesn't love her?
Is her family wanting her to be pregnant or what? Or is she just plain crazy? And Yeoreum is so damn hot. I love him so much , well not as much as I love Gi tae but he is so damn sexyy. People complain about his smile but his smile is adorable. But whatever I love dorky Gi tae morrrre than I love sexy Yeoreum. Hoondong is weird but lovable.
Hyunhee is so hopeless. Mom appeared less much to my relief. And daaaaaamn I love Marriage not Dating. It is superfun. I miss the earlier version of Jangmi tho, the one that appeared in earlier episodes. She had that crazy eyes and weird movements, love her. I wish she returns back to her old weird self. Apart from ho wacky and weird the characters have gotten, I still have an immense amount of love for this show. Sometimes I felt that this show has tried a little way too much on bringing us that "breezy, airy, light" romcom that it's forgotten to develop their characters and relationships and focuses on the comedy and nonchalant stuff instead.
I don't get Se-ah, period. I thought at first that she really has changed for the better. But really. This is the girl who was capable of luring Gi-tae to hospital for fertility test. Could she be really doing anything for anyone with no hidden agenda? Should have known better, self, should have known better. I don't know about you guys but her crying in the end when she got rejected by Ki-tae kind of gets me. I know she more than just deserves it, but it's just so humiliating, still, being in her position.
I really, really, hope that the show would pick up from here because I'm dying for some Gi-tae Jang-Mi action and tired of Yoo-reum. He's cute and hot but if he doesn't stop distracting Jang-mi I'm gonna have a very serious problem with That Guy With Invisible Eyes. Ah finally. I must say i wasn't happy with all the kissing between the wrong people.
But the last kiss made up for all that. I was one step away from jumping to ship yeoreum. Thank goodness! I am back on team Kitae now. Thanks for the recap girlfriday :. Was that the last kiss of the night? the evening continues in ep Didn't see that one coming. I don't know if it's just me or anyone else feels the same way as me but I am NOT into Jinwoo's abs.
Maybe they're too toned for me, I'm still for a normal body any day. And that kiss in the end, I hated the angles. Hopefully next episode we get to see more of that kiss. I ws just wondering, I watch the show on viki and all the comments are like hatred towards hyun-hee. I lke her character; to me she is real. she says what she thinks and it unfiltered.
she isnt scheming but going for what she wants; Hoon dong. to me she has done nothing to deserve hate. she just wants her friend to be there for her like she is for her friend. I need someone to explain why everyone hates her.
And she did have sex with an intoxicated man without his consent, and I might add, without protection. This wasn't a heat of the moment event, but a deliberate action on her part to have him physically. And boy, did she get him. I just want to know, or get a hint of, her motives for wanting to be with HD. At present I don't believe she loves him. Earlier I thought she was a gold digger but not it's become murky which makes me not on board with her crocodile tears all the time.
Can I get a tiny clue please? To me, Hyun Hee is selfish and not a nice person, but doesn't even realize it, and likes to constantly portray herself as a victim. She never thinks about others' feelings but feels wronged when people don't care about hers enough. At first, I thought she was only pretending to be hurt by Jang Mi's actions to guilt-trip her, but now I think she might just be delusional.
I guess we all know people like that, the ones who always think they're the wronged parties. Like when Hyun Hee brought Hoon Dong to the store, she said she wanted JM and HD to clear up the misunderstanding, but that was actually a self-serving move so that her relationship with HD can move along too , but to her self-righteous mind, she acted like a good friend and she feels entitled to JM's friendship.
And now she's enacting her favourite role as the victim again! She drives me insane, but on the other hand I like the actress and she's really gorgeous , so there's that at least! What the girl need is a better agency coz she's so beautiful and can act too well lots of room for improvement thou but still she's so likeable i wanna pinch her cheeks. Thanks for the recap! I have to laugh at your outrage at SA. Don't we all know that crazy girl who still stalks her ex after breaking up five years ago?
I think she is batshit insane, too, and it scares me she is also someone practicing medicine. Does she come with a warning label. I like YR for JM temporarily and I like KT for JM long-term. What matters, of course, is how JM feels and how she is reacting to their words and actions. What is different between the two boys that makes her less attracted to the HOT, sweet and smooth man, and more to the grumpy no-abs-put-your-shirt-back-on man?
The answer is science, as it always is, : and more specificly gravity. As lovely as YR is, JM keeps getting pulled out of the younger man's orbit towards Dr. Greta Garbo. YR just doesn't have enough substance or mass to keep her interested, and he doesn't know that about himself. Ki-tae's strong feelings about life, and his intense reactions to JJM at every turn have more of a pull on her than she had earlier suspected.
She can't help but to towards him. This description of Orbit is almost too perfect at describing the typical romcom plot, that I didn't have to change any of the words:. Orbits are the result of a perfect balance between the forward motion of a body in space, such as a [Joo Jang Mi], and the pull of gravity on it from another body in space, such as a [Kong Ki-tae].
An object with a lot of mass goes forward and wants to keep going forward; however, the gravity of another body in space pulls it in. There is a continuous tug-of-war between the one object wanting to go forward and away and the other wanting to pull it in.
These forces of inertia and gravity have to be perfectly balanced for an orbit to happen. nb:OMG PERFECT BALANCE, ftw! This drama better step the hell up.
I was so invested in it from the start cause I'm like, "ooh! something new! AND the lead is hooooot " no but really, idec about yeo reum, gi tae has my heart all the way , but I digress.
Anyways, it has resorted to using this 'something new' over and over again in less and less creative ways, which makes me sad. Gi Tae, I was a little disappointed in the kiss because why didn't you tell her first? cause that ain't how a kdrama works, yes ik, but this gives her more chances to misunderstand it-even though I don't know in what universe a kiss doesn't mean you like someone- yet again, the kdrama universe!
Hyeon Hee needs to stop complaining, stat. Hoon Dong is gradually rising is my eyes. Yeo Reum needs to be gone. Se Ah can go jump off a cliff. I need the plot to speed up a bit and stop using the same methods. Please, show. I have so much trust in you. Does anyone know any links where I can watch ep 10 RAW!
Love this show! I'm watching it now, unsubbed, and all I can say is - when on earth is Kit Tae going to get around to changing the passcode on his front door? Hahahahaha I've been wondering that for a long time! Mr Brilliant Doctor Who Must Be Alone, and yet I know.
I was seriously laughing to myself wondering how a guy who loves to live alone so much manages to have three people frequently walking into his home unannounced! ohhh what a laugh riot this episode was! Also reality check! First CEO-I never knew anyone could pull off the human rubber duckie!
And so perfect during the dunking session at the beach! Jinwoon does have a great body doesn't he? But poor 2nd lead syndrome Gi Tae finally pulled it off with that kiss, hopefully he can convince the confused JM, but poor YR! The rest don't even matter now. SA has to accept reality 'he's not that in to you! Anyway, this was a fun watch, totally enjoyable and thanks for the quick recap!
The raw is out but I'll wait for the Eng sub And your recap Just finished watching Ep 10 subbed , and Unsympathetic characters are suddenly sympathetic, I ::triple heart:: Jang Mi's Mom, my heart is pining for my sunken ship, and I really want to tell Jang Mi to run like hell from Ki Tae's seriously dysfunctional family. I enjoyed this episode for all the awkward. I was thoroughly entertained. I think that Se Ah and Yeo Reum are the two that I can't figure out.
I can't tell if it's their acting or just how the characters are written. I'll give the actors the benefit of the doubt for now.
I think the writer kind of fell in love with the leads and their story so the two other couples have next to nothing to do. Same here re: Yeo Reum. I feel like the writers want me to feel bad for him, but how can I when they establish in the beginning, and constantly reinforce, what a player he is. He may be doing all the right things, but I can't bring myself to believe any of it.
Except that it's just Ki Tae who keeps saying this. I see no evidence of it - yeah, Yeo Reum knows he's gorgeous and while he may not be the best actor, he is highly decorative , but he's attentive and supportive to Jang Mi, and puts up with a huge amount of relationship BS that would have caused an actual player to slide away from the work involved.
