yes, but I think it's on the knife edge where the next episodes will keep it in 'awesome' territory or send it into disappointment lane. I'd wait another week ...

but he is a delight in this show. He sucked at first, but man is he killing me right now with feels.

thanks! ♥

I'm fully caught up, and I still give the show an overall thumbs up, charming squee, he's quite dreamy. They are bringing in some tropes, but so far they're avoiding the utter stupid that makes the tropes unbearable.

now I have to wait 6 more days to watch more, sad sad face.

oh thank you so much for the update! i'll be sure to give it a go - i still have so much stuff piled up though i have no idea where to start, but i really want to watch [him], so i'm definitely going to start, maybe tonight or something

i also wanted to ask you, so randomly, but what does your username mean? i keep thinking about it but i can't guess it, hence the random question lol

It's just an amalgamation of letters from my actual name, no meaning

Kim Jaewook is hella handsome here. And his character is really squee-worthy - like. He seems like such a decent guy.

I wasn't super excited when I started, but I look forward to this show the most and I think it's a great light watch. The last episode ventured into some stupid tropes but it's def worth trying :)

IKR he's SO attractive WOW, i already eyed the hell out of him @ coffee prince, he ages well wow

thank you so much! that's really helpful

The leads acting really good and even the supporting cast. Story...there are lots of low points for me. But I'm still enjoying it so its level of "I love it" =)
aures 7th-May-2019 07:32 am (UTC)
thank you so much, thats really helpful! Daynr told me to wait another week to see if it's going into the awesome or lame category lol so i'll wait a little longer (i still have tons to catch up with anyway haha)

I love it!! I really DDINT wanna watch bc I don’t like pmy fjjffj but her character is enjoyable to watch, and the chemistry is there.

Also jae wook kills me every episode 😭

I was dying when he started building furniture, so kdrama to slap a pretty leather apron on a man in a professional outfit and have him start sawing wood. And why exactly did they need to build CDI's studio? So the boys could flex at each other?

The stars for me this week are the two other employees at the Museum, they're so funny.

I don't understand the love line between NEG& SDM ... not only are they lifelong friends, but they act like childish friends. HE acts like a childish friend, he doesn't seem to approach her in a romantic way. I haven't decided if it's bad writing, directing, or just odd acting choices....

but at least we got an extended superfluous shower scene.

And I have thoughts on the fashion choices.... PMY's suits are fly, it almost makes me want to go back to wearing suits daily. KJW can't decide if he wants to wear slim trousers or loose baggy trousers. And penny loafers!

Obviously the ending was the usual kdrama nonsense, since we need to make it 16 episodes .... This is the part where I'm nervous the drama will go BAD because this fake "I can't even try, must not like him, but I'm with him all the time and will probably have clumsy accidents so I have to sit on his lap and lip his lips" nonsense has really soured me on the second half of dramas. If you don't have a storyline for 16 episodes, only make 12!

I'm so annoyed and so thrilled I'm watching this. OP, I don't know if you're a devil or angel.
lechuza_yoya 7th-May-2019 12:20 am (UTC)
IA I dont know why they when for that NEG& SDM is a no no, and the way he is, is just not working. and yes 12 ep will have been great.

Is it just me or have dramas been really rushing the romance lately? I feel like one person starts falling for the other super quickly now (like barely half way into the drama).

I am still undecided about whether or not to watch this drama...will keep waiting and see what people say in the next discussion post! lol
daynr 7th-May-2019 09:29 pm (UTC)
It seems that way to me too! They rush the romance and then for a stupid reason back the way off to create false conflict. It's ok if they spend more time becoming friends and getting together and then stay together.
sweetestbliss1 8th-May-2019 12:19 am (UTC)
Ugh, yeah. I usually like umm it's only episode 6 and they're already about to get together? I need more development first, yo!! UNLESS they're like ~fated~ lovers or have some kind of history together, I do not want to see them get together so quickly!
veep_throat 7th-May-2019 02:17 pm (UTC)

I looove that they rlly fooled me twice lmao

veep_throat 7th-May-2019 02:18 pm (UTC)

I hope I don’t get bored by time they get together 💀💀


modestgoddess79 7th-May-2019 07:43 pm (UTC)
Ok they are pissing me off with the fake outs
