  1. As you know, I usually don't really comment on here but I'm making an exception because that was beautiful, beautiful review. I didn't enjoy "The Wind Rises" as much I thought I would or wanted to -it was a good movie but to me it had many scenaristic flaws and some parts fell flat- but your review brings another perspective to light and I was really moved by it. It makes me see the movie in a new way and I think I'll enjoy it more when I see it again. Thank you.

  2. I don't read every post but what interests me. I so rarely watch what everyone else does.

    thanks. It is a very personal movie so if you don't have similar personal investment in it, it may not work as well. This movie kept making me think about my father

  5. If you are like and saw this show and felt it was instant crack, then high five. Yeah this show has a lot of cliches, but for me the seller of this story is the main actress. I am very particular about my actors and very few times do I think an actor has star quality from get go. That girl, name I don't know, has the It factor. She reminds me a young meg ryan. I have seen many other Koreans actresses do the cute face, feisty look, but something about that girl makes me want to see more of her.
    So if you are going to watch this show, watch it to see a star being born in real time. She is A list in my book.

  6. I am enjoying this show very much. Sure it is cliche ridden and has paint by numbers plot but it hits all the right notes in terms of what I look for in a rom-com. I am also loving Yang Jin Sung (female lead) and I hope this show becomes her springboard to stardom. She is such a good find! Cable dramas have been stepping up their game lately. Answer Me 1997 and I Need Romance 3 just to name a few.

  7. This was the first KDrama I ever watched and now I'm absolutely hooked.

  8. Most recently I officially subscribed and now read every new post. Otherwise I hunt for posts that interest me, particularly drama reviews, K or J. And I like the ones that compare the two versions. I'm not on twitter, but that would be my vote.

  9. Thank you for this absolutely beautiful review. This detached, stoic masculine ideal was also present in my Arabian society, but so long ago (pre-WWII), but now fathers are gradually being expected to be more involved. My father is from an older generation (he was born in the 50's) and although he loves us dearly, the little time he spent at home in my youth, he was often sleeping during the day so he could work all night, work overtime during nearly all vacations ( he would only take one or two days off in a year!), and so on, so he could give us comfortable lives even though he worked a relatively low-rung job. I truly and deeply admire such men for all the sacrifices they make, even though people today tend to quickly judge them as neglectful and cold.

    This was a beautiful film and your review is excellent.

  10. Thanks for the kind words. It is one of my better pieces. As someone who like to critique, it is not easy to find some angle to make the writing very personal. This is one of those rare exceptions.
