Other than MNIKSS, how come I rem Once in a Blue Mo(on) jazzbar in every kdrama fluff I saw, I am not delusional right?! And I am drawing blanks. Was it the usual suspects WUF, QSS again?!
It is such a coincidence really watching this episode and being very overworked myself.
Game is on, a billiards game it is when YR wants nothing but get the heck out of here.
Such great fun for YR to poke at TH for a change.
Sol! KSG, I am your very obsessive fangirl.
The guys are sooooo hot playing.
And I insist since I can not marry Eric, frustration and Eric should marry and burn up my screen ALL the time.
Scriptwriter at work. Instead of just buying a new pair of sneakers and showing the human satellite assistant too much info, Mom goes around the way throwing away hobo PD’s awfully stinky pair in the guise of some morons must have stolen it, carried it off in the milk bag because of the stench. It is not too sound a plot, good that assistant is more worried about shops all closed this hour. More dedication for a pair of yucky sneakers than her drama writing.
This is how she used to hold your arm, huh TH?!
I dig how tuned in sensitive HJ is to every overt glance TH is casting their way and he is feeding him back the medicine letting him know he is aware, very. Do they even notice YR is around btw?!
As a Sol/KSG fangirl, nice shot:
Scarily good HYR. I wonder if KTH, who claims to have such a good read on you still, has a hint of how killing you are at being manipulative. 99% of us would have ‘ratted’ out, telling the very pissy bf it just happens we are business partners, coincidence is a word. By not fessing, playing mum along him trying to be the bigger very understanding bf obviously seething, reeling him up she/Sol did ask him to come, hence the no big deal…and biting him back he is the one who is not trusting her, being unnecessarily suspicious. Poor HJ is again at the short end of the stick.
Falling for a guy as easily as she has fallen for me.
Oh snap, why are you a masochist reminding yourself you are not the one anymore?!
HYR is the name of the rabbit. No surprise here, you goner. We will start the worry when you are naming that towel, that shirt, that lampshade, pillows HYRs.
He is almost done with being suspicious, almost. That was a too competitive game for a guy who is just business partner against the boyfriend. Being annoying and very competitive all along is putting HJ back in brooding square one.
Sol to the rescue! Either by scaring your mind out of your chest or just her nod on YR is honest. We can always trust Sol, who would not even fake she has a bladder problem for a girl chat in the ladies’ room.
A figure of speech, she will not use the intimacy he is used to speaking to him without honorifics, all to ease the mind of her bf, that is just adding to the frustration he has to take to bed.
The big reveal in their story! He has cheated on the wife he is proclaiming to be the only woman who could flutter his heart ever, the best woman, 10 years ago with… who else but ladywriterMom. I am not sure if she knew those unbearably stinky sneakers are the last pair his dead wife bought him, but it would burn more with the stench as sensory reminder how much this man is in love with his dead wife and completely forgotten about their fling (or more to her).
OH SOL! I LUB U LUB U LUB U!!! Let unni pinch your cheeks while you keep munching your bibimbap.
In between gulps, Sol drops to JH, HJ learned about the business relationship between YR and TH, but they are smart in keeping the most sensitive personal info of them being exes from him. JH puts on his all-knowing specs and leaks out a big secret(not) the ladies should know about his species, the men: all childish, can not help it but never be able to get over the past romances of their girl.
From their extrapolation, Dr Nam won’t be taking it lightly she has dated KTH for 5 years (as opposed to only one year) and she has slept with him for 5 years. He would probably crack his head with the bed cushions.
lol, poor Dr Nam, this is a tall guy who can kick and go physical, he is not dumb, he will ask questions with any whiff of suspicion at his closest peeps and no one is threaten, nor honest to him. Too bad your playground is full of very cunning foxes so much better at game when you have none, cutiepie. JH knows the name KTH, way more than he is going to let out. HJ can piece it up himself it makes sense for a construction company to work with a furniture workshop, but that is not stopping him from being sensitive on the coincidences piling up…and JH hiding it from him until he kicked it out of his shin is just another damning evidence.
He really does not need the hitting on the upside of the head to have a clue JH is just cooing him. It is mean writer/PD *muahahaha*
Sol finally gets a text from her douche, he is fine with seeing her as friends. NOT COOL.
In a fine speech rattling the douchebag like the bigbro, it is a test drive he is rehearsing for Sol actually. JH did not really call the guy, this is Sol’s business to handle, her call to make, he has no place, and we have an irk he is the kind of guy very wussy with confrontations. What if when subconsciously he does not just want to be the bigbro?! Him being the protective bigbro is only for Sol to hear anyway.
Barking over his hyung for missing to inform him about a detail on the lighting in need of adjustments, hyung is not that slow, he mentions the meeting next with Summer and Pine I bet in hope of getting off easier. Strict Boss has another curveball for him: find him a billiards tutor, a professional who can whipass, he wants to learn and be amazing in a week.
It is an impressive looking company KTH owns. A really good business venture for the duo of talented young ladies they can not help but get excited on the spot.
The presentation goes more than smoothly for YR, and like minds, TH gets their crucial design concept without Sol’s further explaining. YR is patting herself out loud for a good quality job, but this only hits the 50% passing grade to start the work for Mr CEO KTH.
A week of sleepless marathon commences. Very Hot Very Competent Eric is HOTTTT!
Really the whole crew looks scruffy with naps and you are still the hot energizer bunny. You can not be human.
She can really sleep anywhere.
Yeah, we all know you know, but it’s nono to grabbing a girl’s hair. No even for u Eric.
I love the scene is short and sweet, gets the point across and not milking too much romantic shenanigans fr KTH, that would chip away the shrewd boss I am so buying.
JH is again the drinking buddy/chaperone of Sol. Super charming I LUB U ahjusshi Lee MoonShik is again the overprotective Daddy Taxidriver who offers to give Sol a ride for her safety from a pervie suspect JH. He hits JH on the upside of his head right away when he is trying to carrying an unconscious Sol. Poor JH gets some more spanking.
Hm. Gut is Sol is aware of how lovely oppa is to her.
Thank you….I only have you, oppa!
I do not think these fluttering bloomed by just a few words of Sol is a new awareness, it is just a reminder try as he might, perhaps he means more to her, and he realizes he does want to mean more to her instead of settling.
This is stalking. I am very allergic to her plastic and I can not stand all the saccharine cheeriness. Geez, there is a stranger dude 5 ft behind you and you do not notice because you are bouncing down the street. You are not 3 yo. I take that back a 3 yo would notice.
There must be a reason why he is numb, because of the guilt he has caused her demise and ‘abandonment’?! But really?!?! Yawnzzzzz
This is some fascinating support group therapy I thought was a seance retreat. It is the suffering spouse anonymous, be it a ghost husband still nagged nonstop by ghost of his dead wife, or a miserable wife with a husband she has not spoken to in a year. All she can do is expressing her frustration over post-its announcing what’s for dinner and cooking a different dish. Ok Dr. NHJ, we keep saying you are perfect, did you mitigate your Mom’s situation?! Please do not be oblivious to this because I can do the math of 1 yr, that means once you started dating YR, you have poured all your energy on romancing a woman, leaving no attention to how your Mom is doing. That is never cool.
Will there be an older gen love polygon!?!!!!?!!??!?!?!
I love how TH has toned the advances down. It is still a wink here and there, but it is not as aggressive. YR is starting the chitchat on what drugs he is taking, forgoing sleep. He jokes he only sleeps seeing his gf. Ouch, you meanie who was a sweetie buying your employees product placement smoothies before they wake up.
He slept when seeing his gf…on that train ride to JinJu. YR quips that is why he was dumped by his gf. He disagrees of ever getting dumped. A tapping of his head is not resetting his memory she was the one crying and pleading for him to take her back.
She says she has forgotten herself as the shameless cling-on. He reminds her it is good to take a look at what she is greeting him first thing in the morning.
hm. I know the jury is up whether they are blood siblings, but is that how you look at your babysister?! Plastic surgery is offered, she insists on keeping and showing her scar in hope of that certain very important someone can recognize her from the scar when her face may not be recognizable. *snerk. I have a feeling Ms writer is very snarky and as allergic to plastic surgery as I am, this is not the first time she is sneaky!*
I have MNIKSS FEELS. (annoying I know, but let me!) I remembered when I first watched this scene, being a VERY klutzy bikerider, I was so taken aback what kind of loon, however hot you are rides a bike in dresspants INSIDE your apartment, think of the vases!
HYR, I would make a gf mental note he bought a bike for no reason, when he can not ride, not as a gift for you, just randomly bought one.
Miss Cha YaRum is awesome, I am droolzing just watching her play, bonus is an Eric in a white shirt and jeans. She is natural on screen and I love the scene is strictly a very good teach and her very hot apprentice, nothing more. So professional he does not even get a highfive from pretty girl teacher. lol Yes, good job Miss Cha, his palms have secret love potions, ask HYR.
I desperately need Eric in an office romance methinks, how come I think every word he is talking is brilliant and making so much sense even when it is on wood nail lingo bleh and he is hotter when he is no nonsense talking no nonsense and there go my senses. I have really enjoyed their office scenes in QSS it was never just transitional fillers. Tension off the charts, work really get done. KTH is conveniently showing HYR this side of him she is forgetting, a very competent, thorough perfectionist, and it does not hurt if her unsavory impression of him changes from learning he is a professional impressive to work with and…he can attack from that crack. Even if it is not a plan of attack, it works on the level they are on a friendly coworker basis, she is treating him cold noodles (hm, they did eat cold noodles on that first date on the island, no!?! ) and she is taking him to a yummy place in the department store she remembers he missed when she went out with the other colleagues.
WE KNOW IT!
This is the scene HJ is faced with on the up escalator. He lies to his Mom he saw a college friend and begins his favorite occupation lately, stalker! Poor Mom was going to sleep over at her son’s place.
Out of the office, he crosses the boundary, not letting go of her hand, he repeats her words, ‘we are intertwined trees!’ He remembers at the spur of a moment, he lies, downplaying the moment.
YR has all the reasons to swing his hand off way before this moment, but still she does not. Hmm. I know there is a smiling Eric factor but there needs some explaining to me, let alone your sad puppy bf witnessing.
A change of tides when HJ calls and she is honest for once. HJ’s entire face glows up when the grump has transferred to this face. TH keeps asking about le boyfriend or suggesting annoying flaws like cheating, gambling, bad breath…etc. Her boyfriend is perfect and he is strangely too interested in him, YR hammers in the point.
I have to know my opponents to win…in billiards .
Come on, you are taking this straight? But then you are still confused as to what to think of all his suggestive flirtations that do not come across as just fooling around. So i will trust ur mastery in the game keeping numb, downplaying along and letting him slide is the best way to handle him, perhaps.
YR is (perhaps pretending) oblivious to these sizzling stares from KTH, but HJ picks up every bit of it.
LEGGGS of SJ!!
Further impressed by the professionalism of the ‘jerk’. I think it is also a nudge on their MO in love, TH insists on using a rare wood that will last forever…whereas YR can settle, as long as everything is unnoticeable on the surface. He offers to drive her home, but she wants to give her perfect bf a sweet surprise, buying him icecream and delivering to his office. It is nice of KTH, even though you are not giving it another thought. You should know he is jealous of your bf, and even when you have decided on not giving all his comehithers any more thought, bottomline is, he is chauffeuring you to your bf, as a friend, when you have said you do not need him, an ex, as a friend.
A day after the offer of free surgery for her scar, Miss ARM asks for surgeries for kids she knows with cleft lips. How very sweet of her. (I will rot in hell I just do not buy these Cinderella CandyCandy pure angelic barbies who are so very innocent of what hugging a guy who randomly offers you free surgeries off the street can concoct)
This is very sweet of TH. It will not be his fault if he lets the scene play out, YR will be hurt but seeing the true color of her flawless bf to his advantage actually. But most importantly to him, YR will be hurt and her pride will suffer further with him as witness. He makes all that weighing, putting her feelings above anything in a split second and speeds off. Without airing it, he drops her off later, willing she won’t have to witness any of it.
It is a sweet scene for him, the gf bringing the guy icecream at his office he is working overtime. And again, I am sure she has done something similarly sweet for him before, another little thing he had taken for granted, and now sorely missing.
She walks by her bf’s car, no idea where he is at, when another familiar guy is waiting for her at his car.
She explains this swoon by him losing his sense of direction like just now, going around in circles, losing his way and with no choice but wait for her to come back, oh the meta… and perhaps he sees NHJ leaving with JH maybe. She can explain it all.
He is trying to harp on the nice sweet looking guys are the worst. She asks him to shut up and eats icecream and Eric is droolzing at the spoon she just touched, or are you deliberately grabbing hers and thinking nothing but the indirect kissu?!?! Anyway, camera, focusing on those lips are not doing my sanity much good.
But she won’t let him have any, if he keeps trashtalking her perfect bf.
Yeah, all that pent up sexual tension and he just wants an indirect kissu and some icecream, gf. Let him be childish. He does not want icecream. IF you ask him, he would only take them if it’s on your lips. I KID.
Yes, thumbs up on the hotness!
The billiards, cues and the table are great props, just to put a safe distance between the two for the real battle caustic word sparring going on…for the time being. It is delicious.
The clinic is very nice, AND I am the one driving your gf there last night.
So many coincidences between the two of you…
Yes coincidentally I SAW YOU, (hugging another girl, laughing with her, getting late night coffee together, when it was too late from my pov for YOUR gf to be sweet and get you icecream herself I have to chauffeur. )
Settle it with the other woman before HYR finds out, or end it with HYR
From the most unlikely source, NHJ gets his answer. These are not coincidences, if they just met over a switched phone, over a business project for merely a week, who is this guy accusing him and telling him what he should do about HYR…more aggravatingly telling him to get out of her life?! KTH is being the frankest person to him, why not ask the even more burning question?!
Do you like HYR?!
Back to interview mode, TH denies he has feelings for HYR, he just can not stand the two-timing jerk. I hope the interviewer/cameraman asks him right away, oh really !??!?!????!!! why the bother, huh?!?! How is it your business!?
Assuming the camera is not around back at the billiard table, that is not what he said, of course. He taunts,Why?! I can’t like her?!
I did not expect HJ is going to jump on the table. But gosh, this is so hot and fine and I appreciate looking up at the very tall SJ with his longggggg legs from this angle. TYVM!
Surprise, I still love this drama very much, even when the OTP tension is in a backburner compared to the previous episodes. One of my kinks are friends becoming lovers. I do not think it’s practical to rekindle the romance just because of some residual feelings, there is a lot of work and becoming friends, open up a real form of communication is a start. That is what KTH is doing. I love this character of Eric’s perhaps my favorite from everything I have seen/suffered for his hotness.
I am invested in all of them, even the older gens. I want to know much more about YR’s Mom in the context of what push her to be cynical, raising her daughter w a detachment. It shed a light on how the breakup w TH perhaps more traumatizing for YR when she was living very independently prior with her handsoff Mom.
I thought HJ’s mom will be the typical rich MiL so it is nice to see her vunerability. I do not see it as she deliberately makes YR’s life difficult. This is a young freespirited lady who has only dated her only son a year, I bet it is not hard to miss her son is much more into her than vice versa. They are steady and serious but YR oddly is not ready to commit when she put it on the table, with a hint of she’ll compromise for her son’s happiness even if YR is not exactly to her liking. What’s more to ask? We’ve yet to meet HJ’s Dad but if Mom ever considers a divorce, i ship her with LMS’s chatty caring busybody taxidriver ahjusshi. I’ve never liked ASH in anything he has always been typecasted in my head as the OTT sleazeball baddie, and again i cant stand his character here. It is too much suspension of disbelief to not remember a dalliance even fr10 years ago, inasmuch u r still clinging onto her insensitive to her possibly harboring feelings for u day in day out?! I don’t buy it, we can sniff sth is going on btn you two off the bat.
It had better be a greater backstory to HJ’s stalkerish obsession to miss ARM, please do not be first love, it is soooo cliched and yikes, they were babies! Perhaps he is keeping it from YR he was adopted, but that is not sitting well with me. He is the one proposed and still keeping this crucial past history from his fiancee. Not saying YR is a shining beacon, but it is nicely laid out for me where she is coming from fair or no fair.
