This life is what they probably would have dreamed of when they started their band. I liked that compared to the Japanese movie the main couple were closer in age and by the end So Rim was an adult. Especially because, in the Korean entertainment industry especially, it often feels like those who want to be successful have to sacrifice essential aspects of their youth. I'd gotten so closed up that I never shared anything with anyone. But hell, oaths are meant to be broken. I just want all of them to be happy in Music. The fact that he produces her will be an advantage to both.
The office politics is a thrill for me to watch. This episode made me discover Joy's acting potential. Jin-hyuk visits In-woo at his bar as he practices with some musicians. And this is why I especially applaud the show in this aspect, just like what SailorJumun said in her comments for Ep5. Like Hangyul said, Chanyoung fingers can sing.
He asks if she wants to go to the beach at night and light firecrackers. A lot of idol-actors slur when they speak, but not in this case. He has patience and drive and is definitely wonderful at managing the young group, but Han-gyul also has great vision when it comes to discerning what melody and lyrics are going to best show-case their talent and help them to leave a lasting impression. The only pleasant surprise so far for me is Joy, who albeit a little green, seems to have a genuinely sweet personality that gives So-rim her charm. Han-gyul can hardly believe his eyes as the man looks up and smiles at him. I feel like she will do something that will either one of the trio. Sad to see this behavior seems to have become normalized in kdramalamd.
He was completely stunned speechless. So-rim notes that besides them, the bus is completely empty. I know, they're a C story at best even possibly a D but it's a testament to the show's strength and execution that even secondary storylines are that radiant. Chan Young's face absolutely lights up when he's with the kids. For the first time, he's able to have an independent project on his own.
I dunno about the characters' age but I am guessing that So Rim is somewhere around 18 and Hangyul is 25-26? The three greet him cheerfully before taking a lunch break. Like, I wished I could have her self-restraint. It's not an artistic playground, it's an industry. It would make sense if they weren't great to begin with, but with time and practice, they'd obviously have risen to a reasonably good level and be able to play live. On the other side of the stage, Han-gyul takes of his jacket and starts to put in his earphones when Chan-young comes out with a bass guitar.
I like the symbolism there. But it does seem like Han-gyul is slowly finding his way again, with So-rim as his guide. To make it up, my reply to your comment: I don't think it's inconsistent characterization. Later, Chan-young drops her off at her house, and Han-gyul — who had been waiting for her — watches So-rim bid Chan-young a smiling goodnight. I hope it stays that way till the end. I really love Soo Yeon what a supportive sunbae and was so happy to see her and Shin Hyun have the chance to be all flirty at the retreat. See, he doesn't only care about So Rim! Im glad that the truth was revealed immediately.
There are male idols in their 30s still active as idols, not so much female idols unless they turned actresses. So-rim grins at the news, and Chan-young observes her happiness. You stream and share at your own risk. I also loved how she kept her promise despite the fact the other party was her crush. It seems more of protective attitude. It's not my usual type of drama, but I don't mind a good romance when it's good. I don't want to join the crowd of disappointed people that keep comparing it to the superior original which did this and that instead when I'm already really enjoying it as it is now.
I was waiting for this recap to be up! She makes them sit down together and tells them to hash out their differences over drinks. So when he finds out she wasn't going out with him for himself, it might be too much for his pride and he will feel hurt and angry. Excited Han Gyul falling down when his headphones got caught was priceless. I have feeling that Shi-hyun and Soo-yeon might have been in a relationship before or been in that fuzzy grey area though. I sometimes skip guest comments because my eyes just feel tired reading them but it's such a waste because some of the comments r gold. Having said that, I like that the heaviness of the adult world is still felt amidst the youthful presence. It would be romantic if they found out.
You explained what I'm thinking about, in better and clearer words! If anything, this just makes the wait for new episodes actually enjoyable. After she dismisses them, her secretary tells her that Yoo-seok has been trying to get ahold of her. You have to see this at her poiny of view, and we all know she has no malice on her body and usually sees the good in every person. Before Han-gyul can say anything, she runs away. And he already knows that so rim likes han gyul so before she could go to his side, he made her promise that she would sing his songs only. I adore Chan Young when he's managing the group, but not so much when he's too busy pitying himself. So in turn, I was never able to give 100% of my heart into the friendship either.
Don't mess with poor Gyu-sun's heart! As long as he is willing to take the relationship at a pace that is suited to her age, I'm all for it. I want her to be happy with Si-hyun, they looked so cute during the dodgeball game. When she gave So-rim her phone so she could take Han-gyul's call I was so happy. Why can't an older man fall in love with a younger girl? Not everyone who enjoys music is meant for a career in it. So-rim is uncomfortable hiding their relationship from everyone, but Han-gyul promises to try hard for her. After contemplating his newly finished song, he comes to a decision and heads out to meet with So-rim. He takes off her cap and mask and apologizes for fixating on protecting her image instead of complimenting her on how pretty she looks today.
