I was actually a bit annoyed with Nan Hee at first because I thought she is just playing with Jung Joo’s feelings. It seems like the boy loves her so much. I could see Chul Su (What’s Up Fox?) in him, so even though the drama hasn’t gotten deep into his feelings, I can somehow imagine how it is (based on Chul Su). But in this episode, I’m glad that Nan Hee does loves him too.
I also am not a big fan of dramas where leads co-habit. It’s just too cliche-ish. However, somehow it works for me on this drama. I’m liking the friendship of Nan Hee and Hyung Tae so much.
And Episode 3 was nice. I’m beginning to think that the writer is really good despite my initial annoyance with obvious similarities from What’s Up Fox?. I love the scenes between Nan Hee and Hyung Tae. I like the touching scenes between them at the beginning, though I still don’t see them as potential lovers. I’m just loving their friendship.
I also noticed an incorrect subtitle (lately I can notice inaccurate subtitles more and more, does that mean my Korean is improving? Finally improving? 🙂 ). Anyway, it just caught my attention because of the mention of Go Hyun Jung – one of my favorite actresses. The subtitle reads: Just like the Go Hyun jung of our era. But what was said is actually 모래시계 고현정인거지. 모래시계 is Go Hyun Jung’s classic drama Sandglass (that I still haven’t gotten myself into watching even though I would really love to watch it!). Saying ‘Just like Go Hyun Jung of our era’ doesn’t make sense but saying ‘Just like Go Hyun Jung in Sandglass’ makes more sense in that scene.
Oh, I so love their speed dial scenes.
This episode ended really light heartedly that I was literally leaping around the house because I just feel so light and happy. And somehow I’m happy with Nan Hee and Hyung Tae’s current situation now that I really don’t want them to actually be together anymore, and just stay with their current relationships and remain as good friends – if it’s possible. I can’t imagine how painful it will be for Jung Joo if he and Nan Hee breaks up again.
Now this episode makes me sad – the love story of Chun Hee, the ahjussi with chicks (chicken chicks), Nan Hee’s pride at work… but why is it that every drama seems to be boiling down to a My Name Is Kim Sam Soon clone?
I’m also getting bored as this drama tries to compare life with baseball. I’m not a sports fan and I don’t even know how baseball is played, so that association with baseball kinda ruins the fun for me (note: I wrote this a couple of weeks ago – and that was before I realized that Kim Sun Ah’s new movie is all about baseball. Now I’m enjoying the baseball scenes on this drama! 🙂 )
