    EP 12
    Love the cute couple scenes that were missing for a quite a no of episodes.. and father and son scenes. They are so similar in temperament..so funny.
    PSH is so charming and cute, and very much into the role of CSJ.
    I believe the angst will come in EP 13-14, when SJ has to contend with SK’s flaws.. come to terms with that, forgive and go forward in their relationship in a more realistic and matured way.
    Dont all love relationships evolve in stages… EP 12 shows that they are still in lovey dovey stage and in their sweet selves; next will be the conflict stage when they realise that their partner is not as perfect as they thought to be…. then come acceptance (if they so decide to stay and love each other still)…
    I believe SJ will grow emotionally after the angst.. and come to accept SK as a more complex person.. but still a choice partner for him.
    CSJ fighting!
    I also miss cute DR and driver Kim in this EP…

    There are talks for 2 EPs extension … then writers need not rush through the developments…

    @lisa6 – 701

    Heard about the extension earlier but I don’t think CDDA will be extended now since Kang Ji Hwan who is the male lead in the drama after CDDA had started firming two weeks ago after resolving his issue with his agency and the rating of CDDA did not increased significantly to warrant further extension.

    If there is one, SBS should have announced the extension right after the airing of ep 12 .Otherwise, based on past precedents, last minute changes to the script will be too abrupt and quality of the show will definitely be affected. Although I like to continue watching both PSH and MGY, the extension may not augur well for the drama if the writers do not have sufficient materials and time to develop the story.

    @ tc – 702

    Yes it appears that there is still no confirmation from SBS to last Sat’s news that CDDA may be extended by 2 episodes.

    I was hoping that there could be extension, but I guess CDDA is underated because its writers have crafted this drama to be like no other. Their realistic characterisation of SJ, SK, YJ and TH, each with their own individual flaws and termperaments, are not set to what the audience normally can expect – romantic plot, fairy tale OTPs and strictly black or white characters. As a result, there seems to be many controversial views and emotions from viewers on the characters and plot development.

    My weekends have been liven by CDDA. Love especially its hilarious scenes and the characters who seem like real people including all the side characters (Dr, Secretary Moon, SK’s friend and sister team, SJ’s father)!
    If only SBS could have plan earlier for a longer series to allow more time for depth development!

    Let’s look forward to this weekend for next 2 EPs..

    Just read the news that PSH will watch the last episode of CDDA with his fans on 27 Jan, hence it is confirmed that there will be no extension.

    So we only have 4 more episodes of CDDA to liven up our weekends. Despite its flaws, this drama is really entertaining and addictive.

    Just saw the BTS scene of PSH spinning around MGY at his condo. He actually suggested to the PD to allow him to spin her all the way to his bedroom! Ha! ha! So very cheeky of him!

    lisa6 Says:


    Yes, I saw that BTS scene… happy to know that PSH is having lots of fun filming..

    here’s the written preview for Ep 13 and Ep 14.


    Cant wait to know what’s going to happen next this weekend…

    can’t wait for ep 13,,,

    tc Says:


    Me too… I really like PSH’s warm treatment towards his fans. He had consistently watched the last episode of his dramas with his Korean fans for the past few years. Last year, he only showed up for TPM’s celebration dinner briefly before proceeding to watch the last ep with his fans.

    Saw the preview of ep 13, looks like SJ still did not manage to watch the video clip on his phone. Curious how the video clip disappears fr his phone!

    lisa6 Says:

    Ep 13-14 are heartbreaking.
    My heart goes out to CSJ as he is always hurt by women he loves.
    PSH’s mastery in expressions is excellent (one can tell from his expressions what he is thinking and feeling)… After the meeting with SIH, CSJ goes back to his office and sits alone at his desk looking stunned. His eyes start to fill with tears as the pain sinks in;
    When HSK tried to confess at the mock-wedding rehearsal, CSJ’s expression suddenly changed showing his grief, hurt and anger; and
    When he was sobbing uncontrollably in the stationary car after he drove away from the church….
    so touching, that had me sobbing along with CSJ…
    I expected the angst scenes to be prolonged, but actually each scene is very short. Yet in that short time, I could feel CSJ’s pain and grief due to PSH’s amazing acting… as if he is really CSJ.

    HSK wants another chance to show her real self to CSJ… let’s see how she can turnaround the relationship in the last 2 Eps…

    Hopefully SYJ’s husband will forgive SYJ… if not, it may be good for her to leave the snobbish Shin family…perhaps join TH as his business partner…

    tc Says:


    Felt the same way too when I saw CSJ’s crying scenes – you can feel his pain. Some viewers actually dislike his weak personality of living in denial but I can understand his actions as PSH is supposed to portray a character that has a mental illness which typically display such symptoms.

    PSH’s acting in ep 14 does remind me of his awesome character in Princess Man and he still looks so hot even when he is full of anger and hatred. I am not surprised that he garnered the highest votes of 64% to win the the Best Star in CDDA by netizens’ voting over the last 2 weeks.

    MGY’s acting is also awesome especially when she made her confession at the church and at the airport . Despite the angst, I actually like this ep as all secrets are finally out in the open and I can’t wait to see how HSK will regain
    CSJ’s trust in next ep.

    mtoenlob Says:

    Man is a complex creature. How he responses to life’s stimuli depends, most of the time, largely on his emotional state. Man is vulnerable to being hurt by other people, whether intentionally or not. And when hurt, he is apt to retaliate to protect and avenge himself. He tends to think of revenge, and to react and respond to that hurt by striking back, an eye for an eye, thinking that in doing so justice has been dispensed. He thinks that by hurting the person(s) who hurt him will make him feel good to see the “hurter” suffer as he/she made him suffer. This is Seung Jo. The thought of exacting vengeance from the people who have caused him so much pain and misery is the driving force that propelled him to survive his darkest hours. But in his deluded desire for retaliation he has lost himself. He might have experience satisfaction for the payback but this is short-lived. In his solitary moments he drowns himself with the “happiness” and “satisfaction” but these are not real and this act erodes his sense of well-being and peace. To an outsider, he is a man of poise, of confidence, of success. Deep inside, he is a total wreck. And so, as a coping mechanism, he builds himself a world of make-believe. And this is where he has placed himself and Se Kyung. When SK smashes his make-believe world by making him see reality he is enraged with disappointment. She has ruined his world. Once again, SJ is hurt. And his natural instinct is to run away from reality.

    It is understandable where SJ’s outrage with reality is coming from. The past can hurt. You can either run from it or learn from it. However, by living in self-denial, by hanging on to the hurt, with anger, bitterness and resentment he is harming himself more. He has to acknowledge the hurt, express the pain, and heal himself completely by forgiving those who hurt him, release the pain and let go of the bitter experience. Most of all, he has to forgive himself, because subconsciously he is blaming himself, too. Only then can he start anew.
