I notice that I tend to get bored or fed up with the daily dramas lately but will see how this one pans out.

My One and Only premieres tonight!

After watching the KBS My One and Only Trailer (KBS World YouTube page), I'm quite looking forward to this series.

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


Thanks for posting the KBS World YouTube link, SuperRookie. That was a pleasure to see.

Though it hasn't always proven to be true, it has seemed to me that the better the intro to the drama opening credits, the higher quality the daily itself would be. I especially like the way they create the name of this drama through the clever use of building blocks. I'll bet we will be seeing a daily that is significantly better than My Bittersweet Life. The trailer itself gave me that feeling, too.

On to tonight!

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


Episode 1:

I'm not totally hooked yet, but the first episode was a promising start and it seems like there's potential. The four younger actors/actresses, collectively, seem more interesting than My Bittersweet Life, at least.

The one thing, the Opening/Ending theme song is nowhere as catchy as the past two series, at least for me.

Tons of familiar faces in this one, and it's almost like a Smile Donghae reunion... with Park Jung Ah (Saewa) who looks more sophisticated and glamorous in this series vs in SD, Lee Bo Hee (the mother in SD) and Jung Ae Ri (Mrs. CEO in SD).

I'm incredibly impressed by Jung Ae Ri's versatility as an actress - I remember many of us were impressed by her acting in SD as Mrs. CEO, where she plays a sophisticated, controlled and quiet, upper class character; and in the Africa charity ads she comes across as someone of benevolent and dignified person. In this one though, she's loud, lively and has a lot of provincial traits and mannerisms and she pulls it off very well. She is another person entirely in this.

One of the latter scenes where Seojun looks like he was going to propose to Gunghwa was sad to see. Only in Korea could we have such a cheesy love spectacle with the whole dance routine and the word LOVE in the background. Gotta give props for a guy to be that daring (and cheesy). emoticon But all that for naught, he was shot down big time. OUCH! Looks like it's a one sided love? or perhaps Gunghwa isn't ready to settle down (later on she took off a ring she was wearing)? But if she didn't love him, why was she flattered and smiled when there was that whole dance routine and LOVE behind him. At the ending scene, our White Knight Unchan comes to her rescue and this chance meeting may serve as the catalyst for her falling for him.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays all!

As usual with dailies, trying to sort out all the character relationships. Also the main male character Unchan is only a half brother, so this might be a subplot down the road. This one already has a number of possible subplots with so many characters involved. Will give it a couple weeks before passing judgement.

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


Nothing too exciting yet, but it takes time to settle in and take root.

I like the main guy, Unchan. He's full of energy and life. The girl is okay. The guy she is supposed to marry, Seojun (sp?), seemed a little too confident and presumptuous for me but I did feel sorry for him having the rug pulled out from underneath him when he already assumed the engagement was a done deal.

Glad to see Park Jung Ah (Saewa) here, though it's a shame to see her again playing the malevolent classic beauty. I wish they'd put her in the lead in one of these dramas instead of casting her as the scheming beautiful woman out to get a man she probably can't have.

It's also a surprise to see so many of our classic 'MIL' actresses all together in the same drama—Kim Hye-Ok, Lee Bo-Hee, and Jung Ae-Ri. All three of them seem to be cast as characters different from how we usually see them. Lee Bo-Hee is cracking me up as the Veronica Lake knock off, the long, wavy page boy type hair, the intensely red lipstick. LOL! She looks good that way, though! Looks like we've got as many heavy-weight veteran male actors to counterbalance the women, too.

Keeping fingers crossed...

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


Taking time to get all the names & relationships straight but starting to get a good vibe. I like the "blossoming" relationship between Un-chan & Gunghwa and curious about how the whole co-signing disaster will turn out.

Got a LONG way to go but liking it so far.

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


     I'am still a fish out of water with these K-Dramas. How far in the hole is the family with that bum's loan that he lost all that money to? Was it one of those can't lose get rich quick scams that he fell for? Unchan's ring in tonight's show they threw out the number of 300G's for that ring, was that supposed to be in won or is the family really that clueless about its value. Also I haven't figured out what kind of business the father has. Otherwise the cute couple that Unchan and Gunghwa make keep bring me back to watch more of this show.

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


I liked the ending of episode 2 and the scenes with Gunghwa and Unchan.

Episode 3 was at times very melodramatic in an over the top way, from the cheesy transitional short theme 80s "drama" sounding-piano passage, to the shock at the event with the trot music playing - that whole scene felt like much ado about nothing, although I understand it's more of a cultural instance. But the mortified looks of the audience and especially Seojun's mom and Gunghwa's mom was so over the top in their abhorrence to what they were hearing, especially given Seojun's mom's musical background. I can understand them not liking it or even criticizing it, but the crowd acted like Gunghwa was performing with a pole rather than violin - this crowd must never have seen US music videos or heck, or the deluge of cookie cutter pop songs or eyebrow raising Korean Girl Group videos to properly channel their dismay towards... emoticon

Side note: It was interesting that Gunghwa was introduced as Seojun's fiancee rather than the daughter of the company heads... strange...

Previous sarcasm aside, a similar story theme was used in another KBS series a few months ago, Dream High, and one of my favorite scenes in that delightful series. In Dream High, the classical singer character looked down on a well known Korean trot theme and Bae Yong Joon's character demonstrated an interesting lesson and turned it into a learning moment on music on how artistic snobs shouldn't look down on trot or pop music.

Also noticed the instance of familiar instance of typecasting - in this series and in the previous weekend series My Love, My Family - the zany mother with three kids in MLMF, and her youngest kid in that series are in this series as mother and kid (wife and son of one the family sons studying to be a lawyer) as well.

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


Just finished tonight's ep. 4

KBS likes this three story house for their lead characters this year. It was one of the homes Donghae's grandma was shopping for in Smile Donghae, it was JaEun's house in Ojakgyo Brothers, and now it's Gunghwa's family home. Home location shots are familiar in K-Drama land given the limited availability of homes with production access, but it amuses me how many times we're seeing this one particular house in this year alone. LOL! emoticon

TomCat, it's been a while! Nice to see you in this corner of the forum. These long dailies usually start out convoluted, don't worry missing out on the details... these dailies usually start out vague but as the series goes along the story and relationships get clearer.

Gunghwa and Unchan are indeed a cute couple! Those two are also my favorite aspects of the show, so far.

Yep the money was lost with the scammer who left the country. This is one of the most common story and archetypes of male characters in K-Dramas... in a world of class warfare where the rich, educated, of high status thrive... the lower class are left in desperation of hard work for little money or no work at all, all while faced with incredible pressure from family to provide.

Early in this series we already saw two strong moments of class separation: class ul class li When Gunghwa's mother and father met Unchan in episode 1, once Unchan mentioned he didn't go to college... Gunghwa's mother looked at him with such disappointment and she lost interest in him. class li Second in episode 3, Seojun's mother was disgusted at the thought of Seojun potentially marrying a college dropout, when they learned Gunghwa might stop attending the music university in London. Back to the male archetypes... especially true of sub-characters or main character's father or close family, that desperation and inability to rise through the financial and economic machine of Korea... some of those types that can't find any other way to break out of their current lackings instead choose to risk it all through investments or business ideas, usually, it ends up being a total bust or the friend they invest with completely disappears with the money.

As far as the value of the ring, in the past, I've seen both instances of it being correctly converted to US $ but also in other cases of it referring to SK Won (drop 3 digits to convert to US $) but with the $ usage misused. The subtitles in recent K-Dramas have been mostly professional and fairly accurate in this regard. In the context of Seojun and Gunghwa's family being extremely well off, this is definitely not a $300 ring, so I believe the KBS subs are accurate in the use of the $ when they use the term potentially being a 300G ring - it's not a cheap one, regardless of how accurate or inaccurate the specific 300G number came about from Hyeongjeong's appraisal.

I wasn't paying as much attention in episode 1 with all the goings on... I may be wrong, but I think the father is a Public administrator, and in episode 1 I think there was some mention about him going for the town's mayor position. It's been kind of vague so far, I'm sure we'll learn more in upcoming episodes!

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


Another story of rich girl, poor boy falling in love. It's always the same theme.
Boy, those creditors are scary. They take the law into their own hands. Are the creditors mostly loan sharks???
What about the remark about Unchan being a "love child" What's with that?

Unchan's father had an affair, and was forced to take Unchan in with Bong Ja having to accept as well. There was one scene where it seems that was his one and only big failing that has haunted the mother of the family, when she referenced how could he do this to her again (co-signing the house) and losing it now was his second big offense.

The scene last night where the mother of the family, Bong Ja, praised him and made him the center of the feast though, after she heard one of the kids scolding him... it seems like despite the affair, they love each other deeply.

I don't think so. In many K-dramas we have seen ordinary people rushing into private homes of bankrupt individuals, taking any/all valuables in payment for what the person owes them. It doesn't seem to be an illegal practice—we have seen it happen repeatedly in the dramas. They remind me of small creditors... like furniture stores or other local merchants of some sort... debts like that.

"Loan sharks" are legal in Korea, though there is some regulation capping the interest—and no violence allowed. (That's about like asking the mob here to not use violence when they are collecting.) The loan sharks in these dramas don't usually bother with furnishings, jewelry, etc. Just the opposite... they're always smashing up everything to frighten the debtor. They want their cash and don't care how you come up with it. Just get it!

I find it hard to believe that Uchan's father cheated on his wife. He doesn't seem the type... but then.... emoticon

Worse than the creditors is that family - assuming they deserve some kind of reward for finding the ring. Their greed is disgusting, even if it is to save the house. They act like a reward is owed to them.. Should take responsibility for getting in the mess they're in instead of trying to get money from Trot Girl.

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


For those interested or curious, I've been racking my head for the last few days trying to remember where I heard this tune before... I'm pretty sure Gunghwa's ringtone and the music video she was watching before the firestorm erupted at home is Vanessa Mae's Contradanza (YouTube Link). This would make sense and tie into Gunghwa's interests and her character since Vanessa Mae is a well regarded female violinist (I love her stuff personally).

Last night Gunghwa's mother was just ridiculous, kicking out Gunghwa because of the whole violin scene again. I can try to understand her high standards and wanting the best for her daughter, but she is just suffocatingly controlling and her demanding attitude is nigh impossible. In the last dailies, we have seen very harsh attitudes at the very beginning, last series Malnam's (rare and at times) iron-fisted rule, then in the previous series Smile Donghae, Taehoon's father wiping him severely in one of the early episodes. In this series we have Gunghwa's mother... but I can't help but feel like there's more to her character. For some reason I can't believe she can be this tough... we'll have to wait and see if there is more to this story or her behavior in upcoming episodes!

Yes, things aren't as they appear... or are they? I feel like the writers are giving us a mix of bi-polar characterizations, either to purposely confuse us initially, or perhaps give these characters room to evolve.

- Unchan's father seems so loving, kind and meek, which makes it surprising that he'd engage in an affair... then again, perhaps he was too loving? LOL! emoticon Not that having an affair has anything to do with not being kind, but from what we have seen, it's a little surprising.

- Then we have Gunghwa's grandfather, her mother's uncle. Why is he so cantankerous at work? He's being so ridiculous towards Unchan and trying to get the injured old man out of work in the last few episodes. But then we see another side of him of being caring about safety concerns, and he is so loving when he's around Gunghwa and her mother... something doesn't fit.

- And then there is Gunghwa's father, who is incredibly loving and seems to be the cool to Gunghwa's mother's fiery temper. Yet when Gunghwa's mother was with her uncle, he was talking about how Gunghwa's father was a thug at the company when Gunghwa's mother's father ran the company... Did Gunghwa's father do some very shady or malevolent stuff in the past to rise in the architecture world?

The characters I can't stand so far are Dohui (Saewa) and the son with glasses (Hyeongjeong's husband). Both of them are so self-absorbed, cold and uncaring about their families' plight. If Dohui is going to transform into a villain like Saewa did in SD, I hope they make her at least more interesting... so far she's rather uninteresting. But it's still way early in the series. I'm surprised these two didn't marry each other, they are a perfect pair of selfishness. LOL!

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


     Have they told us yet why Gunghwa left the school of music in London that she had been attending? And why is her mother so upset that she plays "trot" music ( what is trot music ?) . And before that what kind of school did mom want Gunghwa to attend now that she was back?
     
     I saw thurs that Mom was so upset by her playing trot music,that she threw her out of the house! yikes! and Seojun rescued her, where is Gunghwa living now? And wasn't that nice the way Unchan's family was still trying to squeeze a reward out of Gunghwa. Even after Unchan gave a pass on the idea that he wanted one for saving her, and later returning her engagement ring.

      Now I'am guessing that Seojun and Gunghwa have known each other for years but why did he assume that now was the time to press for her hand in marriage?

Re: K-Drama: 당신 뿐이야 (My One and Only)


Tomcat:

- Yeah they did a few episodes ago, re: school. Gunghwa was asked to play a classical piece of music (or what music snobs at academy view as complex music) for her final, but when she wanted to play trot music, they gave her an ultimatum. She chose not to accept... It's a complex issue, but if I were to try to make a simplistic analogy, it would be like someone studying to be a classical opera singer, instead singing a Britney Spears song when the audience/teachers expect opera. About your last question, Gunghwa's mom gave her an ultimatum of going back to the school in London (versus staying in Korea to go to school locally) or going to work at the company. I mentioned about the class issues we are seeing in this series a few posts ago, there is a very strong upper-class mentality running through Gunghwa and Seojun's mother... where they don't accept anything but the best, or their view of the best.

- Gunghwa is headed to her Grandfather's house (the cranky old man at the construction site, her mother's uncle).

- Trot music is early Korean pop music from the early last century, derived from foxtrot and dance music of that period, particularly stemming from Enka and originating during Japan's occupation of Korea. I kind of think of it more in today's context as folk music. There have been periods of time where this type of music is frowned on by certain generations due to its Japanese influence and the dark history (occupation) that arose from that.

- Seojun probably thought now with Gunghwa about to graduate and that she was going to return to Korea full time, that she was ready to settle down. I can't blame him, if a girl or guy you loved for years was returning from out of country, it's natural to try to make a move to the next step... unfortunately for Seojun, he miscalculated and came on way too strong and/or misunderstood how she feels about him.
