It's finally happening! She's finally becoming aware of his feelings.

I really want to watch this, but I've been so disappointed in how SITR turned out that I'm still just reading your comments to see how it's going (and rerewatching SITR fml)

[Spoiler (click to open)]Seojoon and Eunho battling each other over Dani at the restaurant was hilarious.

I like Seojoon more... anyone else?

I'm not fond of Seojoon mostly because [Spoiler (click to open)] of his "I'll do whatever for you Dani" attitude. I wish they would have just had him join to be with her without them constantly throwing it out there that he's doing it for her. It comes off as desperate. It's a shame because I wanted to like him. In a perfect drama world I was hoping this would have been one of those kind of dramas where you'd think main girl and guy would get together, but they end up with thier triangle partners (ie dani with seojoon and eunho with haerin) but I know that's not happening. But in all fairness, I'm not really into Eunho being with Dani either.

[Spoiler (click to open)] oh yeah for sure, especially in this last episode, I was like "dude, chill. you look desperate". at the same time, I sort of appreciated that he was being clear and upfront with his feelings because that allows Dani the opportunity to say "you know what, I'm sorry, but no". Eunho is being annoyingly coy and so cryptic with his whole "the moon is beautiful" thing that I just find it so annoying. Like man up and tell her clearly, you've already waiting like fifteen years (and never got over her clearly.... which is a whole separate issue and why I don't really like him).
But yeah, I'm not mad if Seojoon and Haerin end up together, which they totally will. They have cute chemistry and seem to respect each other.

Also, I love your icon. I need a Xiumin one.

I guess I feel like [Spoiler (click to open)] the feelings could be pressuring either way. I feel like Dani should really get to know herself a bit better. And like she said she's got shit taste in men. lol I'm not really pro eunho or seojoon though for Dani. Both seem like a bad pick. Seojoon seems a bit desperate and Eunho is a bit too cocky and scared of a relationship and given by those scenes with that guy he helped treat he's got a lot of emotional baggage he needs to uncheck. Both he and Dani I don't think have been very upfront with aspects of thier lives and they need to do that.

lol look at me trying to be all emotionally realistic in a kdrama... what am I even thinking.

Thanks. I posted up some of my old gif ones on my journal if you'd maybe want to snag a Xiumin one. If not if you have a pic you like you can send it to me and when I get some free time I can make it.
shalottlady07 1st-Mar-2019 06:59 pm (UTC)
[Spoiler (click to open)]Oh I agree completely. In an ideal world, Dani would be single and fabulous and hang out with her other single co-workers. She learn who she is as a person separate from who she was as a wife and mother.
I think I just like Seojoon more than Eunho as a person in general. Seojoon is definitely a bit of a snob, but it seems like he has a strong sense of who he is. Eunho clearly has some traumatic secrets that he isn't processing and seems almost dependent on Dani for happiness. Both Eunho and Dani have been super secretive despite claiming to be "best friends".
Hahaha we only want what's best for them even though the writing never allows it hahah

ooo thank you! I'll take a peek and if I snag one, I'll of course credit you. :)

shalottlady07 3rd-Mar-2019 01:05 pm (UTC)
