  20. 20 : Mic Says:

    Kim Bum really lost a lot of weight in this drama! While slim goes well with his longer hairstyle, I still prefer the pre weightloss Kim as he was much cuter!

    Seems this is another tearjerker drama. Not a big friend for tearjerker but I will keep an eye on the development.

  21. 21 : Jennie Says:

    @Mic Yes, agree with you. Kim Bum looks different, heck, he doesn’t even look like Kim Bum! Like you, I prefer the Kim Bum in BoF and East of Eden. Han Ji Min looks very pretty here but like Kim Bum, Jung WS too is not his usual dashing self. Am still waititng for the subs tho but drama looks interesting.Too early to tell if its any good, tho.

  22. 22 : Mic Says:

    @Jennie, hi, there is a scene in the second episode where Kim Bum was in a shower, he was so so pale and skinny! I don’t know if this drama is any good either, will watch a few episodes and see.

  24. 24 : KDaddict Says:

    @Mic n Jennie,
    I saw the first few mins. of ep 1. It is abt that 1 month he has out in the world b4 his execution; I’m sure he falls in love; but he dies in the end. I’m not sure if I can stomach that. Also, their prison hair really does sth to change the looks of two normally very dashing men. That’s so disappointing!
    Kim Bum looks ashen n sickly. Must be having a v heavy schedule for it to reduce a healthy young man to this state. The prize of stardom!

  25. 25 : John Says:

    Its a nice drama and this site is also a very nice site to watch summary and latest announcement of Korean/Chines/Taiwan drama serials, thnx for share description of these dramas, how ever if you want to watch Padam Padam Episode in english sub then you should visit this site

    http://johncandey496.blogspot.com/2011/12/padam-padam-ep-2-eng-subromantic-play.html

  26. 26 : hny Says:

    I watch this drama too…its little bit funny n interesting me..but so sad couse my cute Kim Bun is not the main actor…Kim Bun your face look thin..its demands of the role???
    but I’ll keep watching You !!!!

  27. 27 : Jennie Says:

    This drama is totally different from any other KD and after the first episode, I’m a fan. As for the looks, yes, both Kim Bum and JWS look far from their superstar looks esp. Kim Bum. I wondered if he actually lost weight to play this role as a prisoner and a guardian angel? As for JWS, sure he has to look like that, for a man who has spent so much time in prison. Really realistic portrayal and this is def a no no if you expect to see flower boys in this drama. Good characters, good cast and Great start!!
    @KDaddict The story doesn’t end with his death. That’s not the ending but the beginning. You’ve got to watch the last few minutes too ♥♥

  28. 28 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    Pray, be a spoiler and tell what the story is abt, if it is not abt that month b4 his execution. If it doesn’t end w his death but begins w it, then is it abt heaven? How long do we have to suffer JSW’s geeky look n KB’s sickly look for? Seriously, it bothers me. I’m in a strange mood rt now.

  29. 29 : KDaddict Says:

    I much prefer JWS’s watch magazine look, showing off some watches. It ended up highlighting him n not the watches. And why does a guardian angel look so sickly? Are they supposed to look all bright n shiny, w halo in back of the head?

  30. 30 : hny Says:

    I’m so corious w kang chil..its that child is his son??
    And the moment when kang chil n Ji na..under the rain..sweet like memmory “Tempo doeloe”(when my father met my mom)ha.ha…

  31. 31 : Jennie Says:

    @hny I don’t know for sure if that is his son. From the photos and Kang Chil’s first look at his son, it seems that the boy is his son because the son looks exactly like him when he was young. Then there’s this scene when the son confronted him which confirms it. But KC himself refuses to believe that the boy is his son becos he said he was together with the mother for a while only. My feeling is that it is his son :-)

  32. 32 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict I have only seen two episodes of this. The story is very similar to that of 49 Days minus The Scheduler. He’s hanged but he wakes up to find himself at the places before the killing incident. He is being a chance to redeem himself and to control his will. According to his ‘angel’, there will be three occasions where he will be tested. The first one is the incident in the prison. He managed to control his temper and prevented the killing of the warden the second time round. So there will be two more to determine his fate.
    Gook Soo’s character is a little bit more complicated. He hopes to be an angel. He believes he can be one, that’s why he has all this silly ideas of giving or deducting stars whenever KC behaves or misbehaves. He is KC’s so called guardian angel because he sees the good in KC. So mayb he will become an angel for real.
    That’s my interpretation of the story, at least. Similar to 49 Days but this is KC’s love story, how he falls in love (and I read that the woman he loves is not your typical goody two shoes but a selfish one) and how he saves himself from death a second time round.

  33. 33 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    I like stories that r out of the ordinary, purely imaginary, life after death, wacky, funny, impossible stories, fantasies, etc. That’s why I love SEGA so much. 49 Ds didn’t do much for me tho, except for the Scheduler. Too sad.
    Thanks for the prelim on this. I’ll go watch, dutifully, as a habit. 😉

  34. 34 : KDaddict Says:

    In watching Ep 1, I notice that:
    A haircut really makes or breaks a look; It teaches us to get the best cut we can afford.
    JWS is a fantastic actor. See his face when he is cooing the puppy she is holding. It’s naughty n threatening at once.
    JWS has a tight round butt that puts some of us women to shame. Mine is abt half that rd at the best of times!
    JWS has a fantastically trained body in the communal shower scene. Wow!
    Poor KB has dark circles painted around his eyes. He has a terminal disease n will die soon, so that he can realize his dream to be an angel?

  35. 35 : KDaddict Says:

    Eps 2, 3:
    I knew JWS was a good actor, but I didn’t know he was this good. Strip away the superstar looks, n you can see the acting, pure n simple! I take back my complaint abt his prison hair n geeky look. There is more to this actor than his good looks! Good show!
    Thx for recommending it Jennie.

  36. 36 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 4:
    How can a guy known for being cool play one who is so geeky so well? Not only are Korean actors good looking, they are just good!
    KimB’s char is abt to sprout wings! Yes!
    A very good show!

  37. 37 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict You’re most welcomed, my friend! Once I got used to JWS’s harirstyle and started concentrating on his acting, my attention was drawn to his face during the close ups and I thought, never mind the hair, the face is still there- he still looks good. Guess he’s naturally goodlooking with good strong features, he’d still look good even bald! Yeah, he’s a very good actor and his take of an ex convict is fantastic. Since you’ve watched even Ep 3, what’s your take re Gook Soo? My understanding is that up till Ep 2, he’s not really an angel yet, is he? To me, he just aspires to be one. There are viewers who say he is an angel already. If he is, I must have missed out something in the translation or something is lost in the translation. It’s too time consuming for me to load and watch again so pls give me your views.

  38. 38 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    I feel exactly the same way abt JSW’s acting and facial features. With the close-ups, you see only his face, n it is very good looking. Plus u see him work every one of his facial muscle to show intensity in his emotions n reactions. I applaud him w/out reservations. Who cares abt good hair w that kind of acting!
    As for Gook Soo, in ep 1 n 2, he just aspires to be an angel; in ep 3 n 4, he is in transition to being one. In ep 3, he is already beginning to see the future, e.g. he sees himself sitting on the bus beside a young man that he doesn’t know. It hasn’t yet happened. N he says he can’t wear a top to sleep becos his back itches, as his wings are coming out. Of course, those around him take him to be strange in the head. At end of ep 4, in the preview, he’s beginning to se physical changes in his back, where his wings ARE growing! So he is in transition. I hate it that they make him look so sickly!

  39. 39 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    At the moment, when he sees the future, he has no understanding of it, it puzzles him. He is wondering who that boy is, n why they are on the bus together. So he is not yet an angel. One day, when he becomes one, he would see the future, AND understand it.

  40. 40 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict TQ v.m for clearing that up. I’m itching to watch Ep 3 & 4 but subs are not ready yet. Viki is only about 10% done for Ep3 last time I checked and I don’t fancy watching with Chi subs as my Chi is like zilch-will take me twice as long! But reading your comments, it looks like this drama is going to be a real hit! Btw, Kim B looks the way he is becos he actually took the trouble to lose some 11 kg to prepare for this role. These superstars are really to be commended for their art, which they take on seriously and work hard on O:-)

  41. 41 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    KimB almost looks like a diff person here compared to BoF. It is a thorough transformation. It shows commitment n a seriousness abt acting, n sure is commendable. As they say, some stars r just that, stars; while others r actual actors. (As an aside: I wouldn’t have minded that girl in Raymun Shop so much if she could act. Ditto for LeeJA.)
    But aren’t angels supposed to be glowing? Perhaps it shows that the human in him is dying, for the angel in him to take over. I hope to see his glowing self soon.
    I’m back up to 4 shows per week. Now I’m happy. :)

  42. 42 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict Makes sense what you said about KimB. I’m sure they’re planning a grand transformation for him when he does become an angel..wow, I like the idea and I hope this happens. Just read that the ratings for the first episode was about 1.6%, ie top rating for cable. JWS is being described by media as “rediscovery of a big star” which he so rightly deserves. I also like the idea that cable tv networks are giving the main networks a run of their money lately..a boon for us viewers definitely!

  43. 43 : lefi Says:

    well to all those who badly commented about this movie, fist thing, you are not the director, second, you are not the writer who let his sweats dropped for an accomplishment,…and last, just watch do not over comment or critique the movie because it was made for a reason..thank you

    (note by admin: lefi claimed on comment #67 that this comment is written by her cousin)

  44. 44 : KDaddict Says:

    @lefi:
    I don’t know where u r from or how long you’ve been on the internet. These are the “Comments” pages, created for ppl to “comment” on. Ppl, meaning viewers. We are not the director or the writer or the actors. That is why we watch n express our opinion on their work. Some ppl praise it; some aspects of it, anyway; some ppl don’t. The “movie” is made for a reason: for viewers to watch n critique. And the creators of this webpage haven’t told us what “Over commenting” is. So we don’t know.
    Lastly, I’ve been praising JWS’s acting, in case you didn’t realize.

  46. 46 : hny Says:

    Aish…what the hell are U @lefi!!

    Btw..tq for jennie n KDaddict U’r comments help me for the story I missed.

  47. 47 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    JWS is Rediscovery of a Big Star in this alright.
    Soong Jun Ki is Birth of a New Star in Deep Rooted Tree, the 1st 3 eps of it, that is.
    @hny,
    You r welcome. I take my KDs seriously, the ones I love, as well as the ones I don’t. What I don’t do is : Suffer fools gladly. Life is too short. :)

  48. 48 : lefi Says:

    to the person who reacted on my opinion,
    well, the only point i’m taking out is that “TO THOSE WHO BADLY COMMENTED” i’m not telling it to only one person, if you reacted then u are guilty………………..

    (note by admin: lefi claimed on comment #67 that this comment is written by her cousin)

  49. 49 : KDaddict Says:

    @lefi:
    “To those who badly commented”….?
    Has there been any bad comments on this thread at all?
    You did say “do not over comment”.
    The names that appeared the most here were: KDaddict n Jennie. If you didn’t mean us, then who were you talking to? Your comment #43 was simply “WTF”.

  50. 50 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict Whoa, take it easy, friend. The year-end holidays must be making a lot of people depressed lately to vent out so much negatiivity in a couple of threads in this website. I thought I’d come here and de stress after being subjected to total madness in the last two days over public transportation only to come to this. It’s the season to be merry so don’t let yourself be bogged down with such matters and continue to do what you love most, watching and sharing dramas with others who appreciate what you do best. 😀

  51. 51 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    #43 was completely clueless, so I explained to her in #44 how the Comments Pages worked was all.

  52. 52 : iammee Says:

    It’s nice to see two beautiful and charming leads in one good drama together.

  53. 53 : KDaddict Says:

    @admin,
    Oh! Such Beautiful artwork! Makes the website truly festive!
    Thank you for giving us lovers of KD a home and for always upgrading the site for our sake!
    Wishing all administrators a joyous holiday season!

    @ KDaddict,

    Thanks.

    Merry Christmas!!!

  55. 55 : jangerr Says:

    Just watched the first 4 episodes. Love it so far! The acting by the lead couple is simply superb! Understated yet so real.

  56. 56 : kanha Says:

    @lefi: by reading ur comments I got a feeling that you are also a fan of this drama, so u don’t need to care who badly comments about this drama…just enjoy and show some supports :-)

    @Jangerr: Hi jangerr , good to see you here…I am so in love in this drama, I love the lead actor and actress… I love how they look at each other… Their eyes express their feeling so well….

    @jannie and Kaddict : Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas :-)

  57. 57 : Jennie Says:

    @kanha & jangerr Heehee, looks like we kd addicts can smell a good drama when we see one, hence everybody or almost everybody is here. Good to hear from you
    all. Really enjoying this drama.

    @KDaddict After watching Ep 3&4 n paying close attn to Kim Bum, I think he makes a beautiful angel, esp with the long hair and sculpted face, almost like a Greek god.

    Merry Christmas, everyone and Happy Holidays!

  58. 58 : KDaddict Says:

    @kanha-56, hi,
    Nice to see u again. We talked b4 on another thread; hmm….which one?
    Re lefi: What’s totally strange is that there has been NO negative comments on this thread!
    @Jennie,
    I wrote a reply out of the goodness of my heart to sb who was obviously lost around these parts. We’ve both done it b4. U mistook it for sth else.
    I passed by a LLadro store yesterday, n saw a figure titled Wonderful Angel. It’s a male angel w long hair who dropped his head. Guess who I thought of?
    Have a good holiday in Shanghai!
    Merry Christmas, one and all!

  59. 59 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict Oops, I wasn’t sure what u meant so I went back to my comment at 50 n I see now that u may have misinterpreted it. Sorry but what I meant to do was to ask u to disregard the negative comments and not be disturbed by them . Didnt think
    that you were doing anythg wrong. Hope u get my meaning. Hope you have a
    wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. 😉

  60. 60 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    I wasn’t disturbed by their stupidity at all. There is bound to be a lot of that on the internet. Sometimes I can’t resist telling them which way is up. Frankly I was surprised that u didn’t do it yourself! Maybe I just beat u to it! :)
    For the holidays, I need to get out of this chair, go out, see friends, have dinners! Would u believe that I prefer my KDs to it all? That’s why it isn’t just a habit!

  61. 61 : kanha Says:

    @KDaddict : we did talk before on Scent of a woman :-) and agree with you that there aren’t any negative comments abt this drama yet. though , I couldn’t talk as much as you and jennie did ( becos my poor english ) but always enjoy reading you guys comments :-)

  62. 62 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict I try to resist as much as possible. Don’t want to waste my precious time with people I can’t reason with 😉 Btw, I’m pretty excited about this drama. Something about it really draws me in. I love how it’s slowly becoming so intense and fascinating at the same time. The love story is so beautiful and the setting is “dae-to-the-bak”. At the same time, we are drawn to the fantasy of watching GS’s transformation in becoming an angel, while watching the men kick ass in trying to solve the mystery. Everything is happening all at once and I am rubbing my hands with glee to see what happens next!

  63. 63 : Jennie Says:

    @kanha Just saw your comment after I posted mine. A word of encouragement and support, there’s no such thing as ‘poor English’. As long as you communicate with your heart and with passion, we will understand because we all share the same love and passion, which in this case, for KDs! So just write us your views – the more the merrier (what’s good or bad english anyway, when I suspect that most of us are not native speakers anyway) 😉

  64. 64 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    Sometimes I feel that sb has to tell them poor lost souls who r lost n don’t even know it that they r, in fact, lost. Public Service announcement. But my friends have told me that occasionally my emails can sound like I’m angry when I’m not in the least. A result of having written too many official emails in my life.
    @Kanha,
    J is absolutely right! Join in the discussion. We r not here to grade on composition. Just a bunch of KD lovers sharing our views.
    Gals,
    I strongly recommend Fermentation Family. For as much as I love PP, I’m loving FF even more!

  65. 65 : sangjhoon Says:

    i just started watching epis 1 & it looks promising! woah i got so many to watch & so little time! i would luv to see Fermentation Family as well!

  67. 67 : lefi Says:

    @KDaddict
    i want to apologize to you due to some reasons. my cousin used my name even my e-mail add just to iritate people she doesn’t even know. i want o tell you that it was not me who misjuged the comments in this website. actually, my elder sister just told me about what my cousin had done and as i am reading the comments i am totally disappointed. i even confronted her and she tod me the truth..

    i am trully sorry for this. she had been i think mentally disturbed this past days for personal reasons.. she had also done this to other websites.sorry again..

  68. 68 : KDaddict Says:

    @lefi,
    TQ for your kind message. I only thought that earlier comment strange. Don’t worry abt it. What’s impt is that your cousin feels better. Hope she’ll be able to overcome whatever it is that has been ailing her.
    See You here again under better circumstances.
    Merry Christmas n God bless!

  70. 70 : kanha Says:

    @jennie: you really are a good speaker, thank to your #63 comment, its makes me feel very comfortable being here with your gals :-)

  71. 71 : KDaddict Says:

    @kanha,
    Welcome back! It was good having you on the previous thread. Yes, it was SOAW. Thx for telling me or I’d be scratching my head.
    In commenting, it is how one watches KD that matters. Good English means nothing if it comes with a blind support of idols n idol shows, instead of an open mind and careful observation, n a willingness to BOTH Rant n Rave.
    What’ve you been up to, n what r u watching?

  72. 72 : jangerr Says:

    Hi kanha, Jennie and KDaddict! Great to see you guys here too! Yup, like what Jennie has mentioned, we can smell a good drama when we see one…

    @KDaddict: Thank…I’ve just started commenting on a few KDs thread only, that’s y you could not remember. Lately, I’ve been watching Brain and Padam padam only, its really makes me addicted 😉 … And I’m gonna check on a few more that you and Jennie recommended. You know, what, having you and Jennie on any KD thread makes those threads lively and have more comments, you gals makes us talk and share :-)

  74. 74 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 5:
    The rediscovery of a big star is right! The intensity of his gaze, the multitude of his facial muscles, n his employ of them are truly amazing! I’d have been perfectly happy just staring at Jung Woo Sung’s expressions, even if the rest of the show was garbage. But it is G-R-E-A-T!
    Kim Bum’s acting is great! The actress is great!
    The theme abt good n evil, the appearance n reality of what is good n what is evil, n the discrepancy betwn them is great!
    The treatment of our innate need to love n the courage to do so against all odds is great!
    The inclusion of revenge n forgiveness is great!
    The script is great!
    This is a show with depth in acting an content!
    I love every min of it, n know I’ll watch it again n again!
    In ep 5, the girl falls for him, out of intuition that he is a truly good person. It’s pleasure to see their interaction. But I know the angst abt revenge n danger is just around the corner, maybe in ep 6!
    Wow!
    @kanha, hi,
    Thx for your compliment. I’ve always liked putting down my thoughts on the shows that I’m watching. If sb chimes in, that makes watching more fun. Currently I’m camping out on these threads:
    PP, FF, Ramyun Shop n Return of IJM (for JIW), n Secret Garden (on acct of the voting!). See u around!

    Where did they film the scenes (specifically where Kangchil’s mom lives near the ocean)? Is it Busan?

  76. 76 : KDaddict Says:

    The coastal town where Jung Ji Na and Kang Chil’s mother live is called Tong Yeong. Below is relevant info on wikipedia:

  77. 77 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 6:
    Poor Kang Chil! Are bad things ever going to stop happening to him?
    We know that the guy who framed him all those years ago isn’t going to let him be. It’s tough that the bad guy is now in a position of power, w an even more powerful dad for backing.
    But KC has an angel on his side. Surely that counts for a great deal, right? Plus the love of a good woman, we hope!
    ‘m afraid it’s going to be a long wait till ep 7, what w year-end specials n award shows.

  78. 78 : jangerr Says:

    @ KDaddict

    Where can I watch the latest episode with eng subs? I’m waiting with my heart going ‘padam, padam’… Can’t seem to find it anywhere…

  79. 79 : kanha Says:

    What great love story, JWS is indeed acting so well in love story, I first found him in A Moment To Remember, then Daisy….he did makes me fall in love with the storys. Now I’m falling in love again 😀

  80. 80 : kanha Says:

    @KDaddict: wow…you’ve finished watching the latest episodes already….. Just like Jangerr, I’m still waiting for eng sub. I only watch a scene where they were one the train, that’s so sweet.

  81. 81 : KDaddict Says:

    @jangerr, kanha,
    Eng subs r too slow for my taste. For on-going KDs, I watch whatever I can find. I only watch Eng subs for finished KDs.
    The writing for this script is really good. The conversation, the awkward silences, the articulated n unarticulated emotions. I really love its subtlety n nuisances. And the OTP express them well.
    Why is KWS so perfect in this role? He was good but not this impressive in Athena. Now I’ve to go and find his other works, which r mostly movies.
    Kanha, where do you watch his movies?

  82. 82 : jangerr Says:

    @ KDaddict and kanha

    Oh, JWS has been one of my favourite actors since I saw him in A Moment To Remember. So I was disappointed when I saw his acting in Athena. I supposed his talent is not put to the right use. He’s very good at subtle expressions and nuances which unfortunately is not been displayed or used in Athena. Maybe he’s also a bit too ‘pretty’ for action roles…? In fact, I gave up watching Athena after 2 or 3 episodes! Fortunately, he’s back to what he’s good at here at Padam, Padam!

  83. 83 : kanha Says:

    @KDaddict: I got DVDs, I have never watch his movies on net but you may find it on mysoju, pls check it out. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with his movies.

    @Jangerr: yeah, I don’t like him in Athena as well, its just doesn’t suit him at all. I was very lucky to have watched A moment to remember and Daisy, even its a sad love story but it was wonderful and makes me unable to forget…

  84. 84 : KDaddict Says:

    @Kanha, jangerr,
    Athena and IRIS are both full of big stars, action, explosions, high death tolls, but have no soul. They tried too hard to be like Hollywood blockbusters. I skimmed thru them, but neither finished nor enjoyed them. But in Athena, I saw enough of JungWS to be impressed w his performance. Cha Seung Woo too. He was scary as a bad ass.
    I know PP will become one of my all time favs.
    2011 brought us SEGA, TPM, n now PP. Wow, what a bonus year, yielding 3 super shows in a row! Yipee!

  85. 85 : Rose Says:

    OMG OMG OMG … this show has some brilliant acting going on.
    love the plot , love the story but the most beating part is JWS acting .
    Its my first time watching him ; indeed is the best I have ever seen in Korean Drama. Some how reminds me of Rain in Love to KILL.

    Loving every second of it

  86. 86 : KDaddict Says:

    It’s a pleasant surprise that there are 2 eps of PP this week, instead of some year end special.
    And oh my! Are they sensational!
    Ep 7 opens with another miracle that saves Kang Chi’s life Again (after the one in the yard of the prison). The guy that framed him for murder sent a heavy truck to press him to the ground like a pancake, but a miracle saves him. In the process, he sees visions of things that happened in the past, things that have puzzled him, disappointed him, angered him, hurt him, concerning ppl’s ill treatment of him. Which ppl? Namely his mother, who hung up on him when he called her that fateful night of the murder; and Ji Na’s father who kicked him and spat on him after he was arrested. The visions show him why they did what they did. It covers a lot of ground in these first 15 mins.
    Furthermore, this ep shows us how Ji Na really feels abt KC, despite her fears, despite herself, with nothing being said.
    This is a tightly written script with not a wasted moment.
    There was a connection between KC n JN’s mother who believed in his innocence, but died of an asthma attack before she could do anything to clear his name.
    But the young man who was killed was JN’s father’s younger brother whom he raised. So JN’s father was real mad at his wife for trying to clear the guy who was arrested and prosecuted for killing his brother. You see, KC and JN’s connection runs deep.
    KC finds an opportunity to apologize to JN for liking her, for having mistaken her sympathy for interest. While he apologizes humbly, she looks like she has the air let out of her, n is abt to cry any moment.
    KC’s childhood girlfriend, the divorced woman w a small daughter, is blatantly chasing him now. JN darts her looks of poison.
    KC’s son Chung Ah is now living with KC, his mom n Gong Suk. Chung Ah hears fr her aunt that there was another man in his mother’s life besides KC. He is trying to track down this man who is in the U.S. Meanwhile, some serious bonding goes on within this family as they live together, go to the jim ji ban together, n sing together. That is so sweet to behold.
    Gook Suk tries hard to protect KC fr ill n promote his happiness. GS wants to keep CA close at hand in case KC need his liver.
    KC says: What kind of evil schemes are you hatching? How can you do that to a 17 year old?
    GS: “I am Your guardian angel. I don’t know abt anyone else.” Ahhh!
    KC takes JN out for a picnic by the lake. They end up swimming at KC’s urging. It is dark but there are schools of florescent fish around them. The visual effect is simply magical, until KC holds her by the waist n raises her up from under the water like Venus rising out of the sea. That is beyond magical.
    “I try hard not to court you, but it doesn’t work. Can we not date? Can we?”
    But what is great abt this show, this particular episode cannot be communicated by even the most detailed review. This is a case where the total is greater than the sum of its parts. The sexual tension, the tenderness, the expectation, etc. are there when they exchange a look, or try hard not to , or when they brush past each other. I don’t think I even blinked during these 65 mins! I know I held my breath at a no. of places.
    If I have to pick one perfect episode of any KD I’ve ever watched, it’d be this one.
    Love Jung Woo Sung, the writers n the PD team!

  87. 87 : Jennie Says:

    Hi KDaddict, hope you had a wonderful Christmas! It’s good to be home and back to doing what I love most 😀 I just finished watching ep 5 and I totally agree with you on the chemistry and the sparks that these two give out. The first train scene in Ep 1 was cheeky but the second one in Ep 5, OMG, must be one of the sexiest scenes I’ve seen in a long long while and their attraction to each other is simply sizzling! They are both so at ease with each other and the acting is superb! I love watching him watching her and bravo to HJM who stares straight back at him and boy, she’s such a tease too! I can’t wait to see how far this two will go. I so love a good love story ;-D

  88. 88 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    Welcome back! How was Shanghai? Cold enough for you?
    Oh dear! I’m completely hypnotized by this show! My eyes are fixed to the screen! It captivates you in a completely diff way fr TPM. And Jung Woo Sung is so sexy it’s scary. How can sb w a soup bowl hair cut n ankle length pants be so macho sexy?
    Wait till you see Ep 7! It totally blows me away! Totally.

  89. 89 : Kamoky Says:

    I’m agree with all of you. JWS is doing such a good job in this one. I just finished watch Athena but love JWS in this role. I love the story. Can’t wait to complete watching the whole series. Keep up witht he good work JWS.

  90. 90 : KDaddict Says:

    @Rose @Kamoky, Hi,
    Welcome to the Padam Padam, JWS takes my breath away fan club! Hee hee!
    What a wonderful Christmas and New Year present! This is one hypnotic show n his is one hypnotic performance!
    It is only at ep 8, but I’m already dreading that it’ll finish in 12 more eps, 6 weeks.
    Come join the discussion!

  91. 91 : jangerr Says:

    @ KDaddict

    Thanks so much for the update! You’re really fast! Are you a korean or do you understand korean cos’ I haven’t seen any site that has the eng subs?

    Anyway, Ep 7 sounds really sizzling!!! Can’t wait to see it!

  92. 92 : KDaddict Says:

    I’ve posted hundreds of ep reviews. They never take any effort or a 2nd viewing (except for TPM, when ppl were hanging on the couple’s every word), But with PP, I find myself at a loss after I’ve watch an ep. I just grin like an idiot at the screen. At the end of it, my heart goes padam padam, while my mind is a blank!
    For ep 7, I went back n watched it a 2nd time, 3rd time, took notes, b4 I came up w the Review in #86.
    For ep 8, I watched a 2nd time, n still have no words for it. I’m simply blasted away. Maybe tomorrow, after I calm down, n it sinks in, I’ll get enough detachment to write abt it. After 10 years n 100 KDs, this is probably my 1st crack drama! I’d like to swallow it if I could.
    The big difference betwn this show and sth like Athena or IRIS is that this one draws u into the inner world of the chars; while Athena n IRIS were too busy dazzling us w their slick action n explosions to let us get to know the chars.
    I LOVE the head shorts n close-ups here. Every one of them.
    @jangerr:
    See #81. To be a serious KD addict, it helps to know Korean or Chinese. Eng subs take forever.

  93. 93 : charis Says:

    @KDaddict: Thanks for the review! As always, you write a very convincing review for me to start watching.
    @Jennie: Merry christmas!

  94. 94 : Jennie Says:

    @charis Hi and Merry Christmas. Welcome aboard and I’m pretty sure you’ll love this drama as well. I know I am!

    I just read that the writer, Noh HK also wrote The World Within and Goodbye Solo. I enjoyed watching Goodbye Solo because it was very different from the usual KD and it was my first time watching Chung Jung Myung and he was fantastic there. As for The World Within, I love the leads naturally, two beautiful people who fell in love on the set and off the set-what’s there not to like 😉 Seriously, I loved the dialogue in the drama and I enjoyed watching the “sister-hood” in it, lots of girlfriend talks etc and the cast was super! Padam Padam is Noh’s first fantasy drama and I must say, she’s doing a wonderful job and to think her first impression of JWS wasn’t that great except that he was very good-looking. Haha, luckily she changed her mind about him within 5 mins of talking with him! Love the OST too, break my heart each time it’s being played! Have a feeling that this drama is going to bring me on an emotional roller-coaster ride, for sure ♥♥♥

  95. 95 : Jennie Says:

    @jangger Ep 7 Eng subs are out on natnatvip-online website 😀

  96. 96 : KDaddict Says:

    @charis,
    Can’t TQ enough for my Christmas gift. Heeheehee.
    Glad u dropped by, liked my review, n will watch w us. But pls don’t judge this show by its ep 1. It is actually a very good 1st ep, once u fall in love w the show. But on its own, it is so full of info that it seems confusing n disjointed. If u go back n watch it again after 5 or 6 eps, you’ll appreciate it for being such a good setup.
    @Jennie,
    I love both HB n SHG. However World They live in leaves me cold. I tried it once, twice, but it bored me to tears both times. Never got v far. Its style seems like docu-drama, without the drama.
    Can’t wait for Kim Bum to sprout wings, full scale!

  97. 97 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict Like you said, Ep 7 is too good to be put into words. The first 10 minutes had me gripping my pillow and I had to keep reminding myself to breathe. Towards the middle part, I was clapping and cheering for the family at the karaoke and sauna. Love their concern for each other and how the relationship between mother and son, and father and son is developing. The final 10 minutes practically took my breath away for being so beautiful and magical. I can’t wait to see Ep 8 after seeing the preview and I sincerely hope that the subs will be out tomorrow! But doesn’t the scene when he lifted her remind you of a western movie? I’m quite sure I’ve seen something similar.
    Yeah, me too. Can’t wait to see how KB will look as an angel. With his long hair and strong features, I’m pretty confident he’s going to a beautiful one and his transformation is going to be breathtaking, I’m sure 😉

  98. 98 : KDaddict Says:

    @Jennie,
    Are u also an insomniac like me? Or are you just staying up to watch ep 7?
    Ep 7 is PERFECT! Not a flaw can be found in all its 65 mins. I’ve never seen anything like it, at this level of perfection, I mean. Have u?
    The last 10 mins of ep 7 reminds me of The Abyss, florescent oceanic creatures in darkness. Their swimming hand in hand brings to mind sth I saw in a children’s book called Water Babies. Him raising her out of the water is so central in Greek mythology that many western films have done it.
    I’m most happy when I have a KD that I can love w no holds barred, like SEGA, TPM, n now this! I’m in KD heaven! The KD gods r kind this year. How can we reap 3 super KDs in 12 months? That’s more than all the previous 9 years combined.
    When KB sprouts wings, I’ll be dancing on my sofa!

  99. 99 : KDaddict Says:

    Have to warn you guys that in some ways ep 8 is a step down fr ep 7, which is just a hard act to follow.
    It may not be as perfect, but it is mesmerizing, judging fr my own reaction, in #92.

  100. 100 : KDaddict Says:

    Thank you Drama gods for Padam, Padam!
    It makes up for my suffering watching FBRS, and then some!
    This is like going fr the trough of darkness to Heaven!

  101. 101 : KDaddict Says:

    This is like going to heaven, KD heaven, that is!

  102. 102 : KDaddict Says:

    This is Dec., and these two have to shoot a long scene in the lake. Any lake in Korea must be frigid in Dec. They have to swim in it, stand in it, stare into each others’ eyes, look happy and in love, while freezing to death. How do they do it?
    Then it is only ep 7. 13 more eps to go, when the shooting schedule leaves them no time to sleep. After being dunked in freezing water for a long shoot, How do they not get sick on such a punishing schedule?
    It is no wonder that many stars who r young n at the top of their health n form got driven away in an ambulance from the film site somewhere near the end of the series.
    I say they deserve all the love fr fans, n all the $$$ fr CF advertisers! More power to them!
    Love KD actors (n actresses too)! (Except for what’s her name in FBRS! ;-P ) (Just kidding!)

  103. 103 : charis Says:

    @Jennie94: Hi! I once read that this one is a melodrama. Normally I will avoid watching those kind of dramas, but this year KDaddict made me watch TPM and now this one starts to interest me

    @KDaddict96: happy to know you love my christmas gift, will send you in the future once I find one as good as that one 😀

  104. 104 : charis Says:

    Just got home!
    I don’t suppose you’ll find another one quite as good as the one you sent me for Christmas! Do you? Have u seen his new pics w eyeliner n smoky eyes?
    Have u started watching yet? Unlike TPM, this drama won’t be love w at first sight. It takes 2-3 eps to get hooked. But pay attn to JWS’s acting, n you’ll see it for the marvel that it is.
    They synopsis says it is a “mellow” drama, my dear, not a “melodrama”. Maybe they mean it is slow n gentle?

  106. 106 : takgu99 Says:

    why this drama doesn’t airing at KBS2/SBS/MBC?
    what was bcoz the ratings only 2.something..
    i think this drama will get the high ratings bcoz the story was excited..
    i haven’t watch it but i think this drama was great..looking forward>

  107. 107 : Padamagain Says:

    People need to understand that jTBC is a cable channel in South Korea just like TVN OCN and other cable channel which are equivalent to Disney, Food, Nickelodeon, Cartoon network, ESPN, Discovery, etc in the U.S. which not everybody have those channels. Same goes in South Korea not many people have those cable channels so getting 1%, 2% may seem low if it were broadcast on KBS/SBS/MBC but for a cable channel its not really consider as low ratings.

  108. 108 : admin Says:

    @KDaddict,

    Thanks for inform us. We just update the synopsis to avoid confusion.

  109. 109 : KDaddict Says:

    Re #107,
    Padamagain is right. A cable (pay) channel has a much smaller audience base than a major national (free) channel. 2% seems like a small no., but for a cable show, it is actually an extremely hi rating, esp. considering that cable networks are new entrants to the KD market.
    @admin,
    Su gu ha syeot seum nida! (TQ for your efforts!) 😉 Happy New Year to our hard working elfs!

  110. 110 : KDaddict Says:

    Now that I’m in love, I’ve gone back n watched this fr the beginning, n decided that Ep 1 in particular is quite dense. Here is a recap:
    Ep 1: Part 1:
    The show opens with Jung Woo Sung’s char eating his last meal. He relishes every bite. Then he is executed by hanging! We see him calmly tearing not from his eyes, but from his nostrils. I’m intrigued. How does he do that? You try crying w no tears but w a nose that runs. That’s real technique.
    We are taken back to a month earlier. He and his buddy are to be released from prison on furlow. The Warden has pulled strings to let them have a chance to see the world b4 their real release. He must be the only compassionate prison warden in film history. So sth must happen during their furlow, which then causes his execution.
    Jung’s char is called Yang Kang Chil. His buddy, Kim Bum’s char is Lee Gook Soo. GS insists he is an angel. Look at that t-shirt he is wearing–It has angel wings painted on the back. Love it! While out of prison, GS holds KC by the hand real tight, even when they r in a crowded subway car. As the car moves n the crowd push n shove, KC keeps bumping into a pretty girl who is squished betwn him and the wall. When his body reacts to their physical proximity, she accuses him of indecent assault! GS tells KC that is the woman of his destiny. He seems to know things huh?
    The guys get out of the subway, onto the bus. There is sb trailing KC. Who is it? He ditches his companion GS to go his own way.
    But at this pt I’m so mad at the show for turning 2 of the most attractive men this side of the interntl dateline into dorks! KC has a soup bowl hair cut that makes him look like the village idiot! Kim Bum has lost 15-20 lbs including his cute baby fat, which makes him look sickly. Why, show, why?
    KC goes to a hotel room alone. As if to appease me for having given him a lousy haircut, ah, just then the show comes up w the obligatory shower scene at 13:00 min, where KC is thoroughly enjoying his private shower time like a kid, while we enjoy watching him enjoy it.
    That evening, he runs into the same girl, who is trying to rescue a dog fr a dog stealer. She holds the doggie tight against her chest. He leans in close to play w the dog, mere inches fr her face at 18:50 min. They r in a dark alley alone; for all she knows, he may be a rapist. His expression, fun loving n menacing at the same time, sure gets my attn.
    KC goes looking for a former inmate who owes him favors, but didn’t get the welcome he expected. He returns to the hotel; reads a letter from a woman who tells him abt their mutual hi school mate, Im Shou Mei. He calls the letter writer to find out where Im Shou Mei is. Next morning, he is there talking to Im’s ashes in the temple! He runs away in a huff, saying it’s impossible that Im has had his son, w the letter writer hollering after him to bring his son to live w him. The son, a v good looking young man, stands there, pulls out a photo of his mother w a young KC, an exact image of himself, spits on KC, n walks away! I like this young man’s integrity!
    As KC runs after a bus to get away fr them, he gets hit by a car! The driver is none other than the same woman he has already run into twice the day b4. This is their 3rd chance encounter in a day. Is it chance or fate?
    He lies face down on the road. But look at that butt, full n round. Hee hee. (Sorry, a man is hit by a car, n all I can do is admire his butt! In my defense, I can say that I know they won’t kill off the main char in ep 1).
    He is taken to hosp, where he wakes up n walks out. Just then sb calls him on the phone that was given to him by the Warden to receive only calls fr the prison to locate him. It is not the Warden or his asst, but sb called Chun Ga, the guy who framed him for the murder by putting the knife in his hand 16 years ago, n framed him again 4 years ago to keep him in prison that much longer; this 2nd time by accusing him of beating up on a homeless man. The guy is now a DA, n his father is a judge. The “homeless man” was the one who followed him onto the bus earlier that day.

  111. 111 : taylor Says:

    Oh my, oh my! This show has SERIOUSLY good acting!

  112. 112 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 1: Part 2:
    Lee Gook Soo is frantically searching for his friend n charge, as guardian angel, cos the prison hasn’t been able to contact KC while he is lying unconscious in the hosp. He finds KC sleeping on a street bench.
    It seems that there were 4 guys, schoolmates, involved in the stabbing 16 years ago:
    The one who died, KC who was also stabbed, Park Chun Ga who transferred the bloody knife fr his own hand into KC’s when KC was lying on the ground w a stab wound, n sb else who ended up giving false testimony in favor of Park, we can assume for a price.
    Now Park is a District Attorney, quite famous for a recent big drug bust, while poor KC has wasted away in prison, n is now lamenting his hyung who died trying to save him. We r not yet sure how.
    GS keeps claiming he is an angel. He gives out white stars to KC when he does good. He says KC needs a lot more white stars to get into heaven. It is really charming the way it is done. You aren’t quite sure if GS is for real or if he is just batty. Their furlow over, they take the bus back to prison.
    We see that girl with her father in a less than cordial relationship. She is a vet who has a guy in her life, yet they aren’t exactly lovers. OK, they’ve separated.
    In the prison yard, a big guy is picking on sb. KC steps in to defend the weak guy. GS reminds him to exercise restraint, as they only have 10 days b4 their release. You’ve 2 alpha males staring down each other. The bad guy instigates a fight; KC takes up the challenge. Strange that the prison guards just stand there doing nothing. Only kindly Warden Kim comes running to stop the fight, but KC is too blinded by rage. He hits the warden, whose head falls backwards n bangs into the electric pole, n dies on the spot. Short proceedings end with a death sentence for KC.
    At his execution, he is given a chance to say sth, to pray, which he refuses. He reflects on the key scenes of his life:
    An officer who kicked him n spat on him at his arrest; his mother who hung up on him when he called after having been stabbed; an older brother with whom he shared happy moments of youth; a woman who promised to get him out of prison. These are all ppl who have hurt him, failed him, disappointed him. And God too, seems to have been included in this list, becos he resolutely refused to pray.
    At the moment he is hung, his body drops down thru the flap door, Bamp! He comes out at the other end being hit by a car. He lies face down on the ground, still having a shred of consciousness, asking no one in particular:
    Where am I? Am I dead? He sees her hand coming near his face; he hears her voice. He is being rushed to the hosp. He thinks: Do you dream when you are dead? This is the exact scene fr a month ago, on the day he was on furlow, hit by her car. Again, he gets up fr the hosp bed, walks out in even more of a daze than b4. He is in the shower room w GS again, completely dumb founded as to what has happened. Everything is déjà vu. He asks in panic:
    GS, what is happening w me?
    Boy, don’t we want to know the same! I’m so intrigued that for once, I forget their shower room scene!

    @KDaddict#105
    I’m sure in the future we’ll find another one as good as the one I sent you.
    His new pics w eyeliner n smoky eyes? Where did you see it?

    Have downloaded 1 ep of Padam2 and 2 ep of Fermentation Family. Haven’t watched both of them. I’m watching Ojakgyo now. Can’t spend to much time on watching drama. Hv these 2 boys to take care of.

    ‘The synopsis says it is a “mellow” drama, my dear, not a “melodrama”. Maybe they mean it is slow n gentle?’

    Just google his name w key words. Sth like allkpop.
    Are u enjoying Ojak Brothers? I like family dramas, n enjoyed Sons of Sol Pharmacy. Had hi hopes for Oj, but found it disappointing after 4 eps, maybe becos I can’t stand her flying saucer eyes, Kekeke.
    What bad English? We all read at a glance n make such associations. It has nothing to do w language competency. :)

  115. 115 : jangerr Says:

    @ KDaddict

    Thanks for your recaps! Love reading them, especially your hilarious yet spot-on aside remarks…

    I must totally agree with you on Oj. I’ve stopped watching it after a few episodes because of the flyng saucer eyes too! They made her looked like she’s permanently in a shock or surprise…

    I remember reading an article recently where a producer in Korea was lamenting that it’s difficult to find actresses with natural eyes as all of them have eyes that are surgically altered and opened…

  116. 116 : charis Says:

    @KDaddict#114: I enjoy Ojak Brothers, I like watching Joo Won in Ojak truthfully. I like family drama after watching Family Honor.
    @jangerr#115: have all the actresses gone through eyelids surgery? May I have the link to the article please, thank you in advance.

    Wish you all a blessed and joyous new year, I wish you peace and love.

  117. 117 : Jennie Says:

    Hi gals, I too watched a couple episodes of Ojak brothers but didn’t continue for the same reasons. Yeah, what’s with the double eyelid and big eye thing in Korea! Some of them look so scary eg Seo Woo in Cinderella’s sister and right now in If Tomorrow Comes. Whenever she comes on screen and I happen to have the tv on, couldn’t help but stare at her becos she looks so weirrrrd!
    Have a great New 2012 everyone and hope we continue to be blessed with great KDs throughout the year 😉

    @ charis

    I came across the article abt a couple of weeks ago but I can’t remember from where. These few weeks have been a really hectic time for me so though I tried to think and search (must confess it was only for a short while only), it was a blank… If it pops up again, either in my memory or in some other articles I read, will certainly post the link here for you.

    Actually it was quite an eye-opener (forgive the pun, can’t help it) for me to read the article as I still believed that a good number of the actresses did not go under the knife.

  119. 119 : jangerr Says:

    Here’s wishing everyone a really Happy New Year filled with love, joy and hope and many moments of kd heaven experiences!!! ^___^

  120. 120 : KDaddict Says:

    @jangerr, charis, Hi,
    Plastic surgery is a huge business in SK. There r streets devoted to this business! Asians fr diff countries go there just for PS! Parents give gifts of PS to their children. So it is a prevalent practice, relatively inexpensive n well done. @charis, u can just google it, n lots of articles will pop up. Even 60 mins. or is it 20/20 did a segment on it.
    Actresses who r au naturale r in the sm minority. I don’t have a problem w them getting PS to enhance their looks, as long as the results r pleasing. But lately I notice that for some, eyes r too big; Not only too big for Asians, they r too big, period. UEE is the ultimate one; Park Min Young is another; the 2nd lady in Protect the Boss; the 2nd lead in Marry me Pls; just to name a few. They don’t understand that there is “too much of a good thing”. The trend is twds bigger n bigger. I’m just glad the same hasn’t yet happened w their boobs!
    NY’s D n tmr, I can obsess over PP by going thru its 8 eps again, or tidy up my messy house, n do some much needed exercise. Ot tok kke?

  123. 123 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 2:
    KC was being hung one moment; next moment he was in a car crash that already happened a month ago! From there, it is all deja vu. He tries to tell GS abt his strange experience. GS only tells him to exercise his will power, to not get excited by the big bully, to lie low for 10 days until their release. When that spilt second comes, KC uses everything in his body to stop his fist fr meeting the Warden’s face. The disaster is averted! Hooray! GS gives KC a pendant of an angel that KC has made for him. The pendant glows in KC’s hands, who stares at GS in amazement: What are you kiddo?
    GS doesn’t miss this opportunity to tell KC for the nth time that he is an angel. Only now, he is a real one, like he has begged to be, n so, he can make miracles happen. GS predicts that 2 more miracles will happen, becos chances always come in 3’s. A light shaped in a pair of angel wings passes quietly over the courtyard.
    Finally, they r released w no incident. Their talk on the bus is a theme of this drama:
    Is the world fair, beautiful n worth living in? KC naturally doesn’t think it is. And he’d rather believe that he n GS r both nuts, than believe in miracles.
    SB is still trailing KC. He dumps GS when GS is taking a dump (hehe) n heads for the long distance bus station. He comes face to face w the guy who is following him, n asks why has DA Park sent him. Meanwhile, our angel chases KC to the bus that just left for his hometown, Tong yeong. GS has a vision of himself sitting on the bus w a young man he doesn’t know, n wonders what it is abt.
    We see the pretty vet in her father’s apt: these two have a strained relationship, as she blames him for how he treated her mom after his brother’s death, n ultimately for her death.
    She and KC run into each other Again, this time in the sm hours of the night in the rain, when her car breaks down. Their encounters really r the high-lights of this show. The camera zooms in on his face, which is sooo interesting to watch, as his expression changes quickly in succession reacting to her. Her dog Tenggie is like a 3rd person in this encounter. He plays the role of a go-between. He likes n trusts KC way b4 she does.
    She: Tenggie is being trained to be a guide dog for the blind. We train him to have no fear of the world n of ppl.
    He: No fear of the world n ppl…That’s sth I need.
    That gets her attn.
    In the abandoned hut where they r seeking shelter fr the downpour, he takes off his shirt. It spooks her to see the tattoo on his arm. He wipes his face w his undershirt. She freaks out to see the long scar on his chest, n stands up to leave. Only he leaves instead so that she can stay out of the rain. She is relieved, but not trusting yet.
    Next morning, she sees him sitting inside her car. He asks for a ride into town as the price of fixing her car. She is made so uncomfortable by his chatting w her that she drops him off in front of a bunch of cops outside the police station.
    What impresses me most so far is that Somehow JWS exudes a raw, brute strength n sexuality that is both attractive and scary at the same time. If we feel that way, we’d expect the pretty vet to feel the same. That’s the success of the show. Without this, the show will fall flat. (Like in FBRS, when I kept asking WHY Cha CS would be attracted to a girl like Yang EB. If the audience can’t see the attraction, all else is moot).
    He goes into town to see his mother, a fish monger. To get her attention n to vent his frustration, he causes trouble for her. GS arrives just in time to beat him to his senses. KC is covered in blood, n GS flees b4 KC can stand on his feet. KC’s childhood gf, Hyun Sook brings him to who else but the pretty vet, to patch him up. The vet gets a chance to hear how sb who knows KC well interact w him w the certain that he is a good guy. I bet that’s eye opening for her.

  124. 124 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 3, Part 1:
    KC is in Dr. Jung’s vet clinic, with blood dripping down his brows. He opens his eyes, sees her, n mumbles: We meet again?
    The lights flicker n then go out. He tinkers w the fuse box for a min; the lights come back. She explains to him abt having misunderstood him when he got into her car to fix it without permission. She thought he was going to steal it. Just then, the hosp calls her abt the person she hit, to say that he has liver cancer, n asks her to inform them when he is found.
    Next morning, Hyuk Sook prepares a picnic basket for an outing w KC, his mother, n GS. The two women begin to warm up to GS. What women wouldn’t? He is handsome, eager to please n so helpful. HS asks GS:
    You are so handsome; how does someone like you end up in jail?
    GS answers casually between bites: Armed robber n attempted murder.
    The women almost choke on their food. Hahaha.
    Afterwards, they go to the hardware store to buy materials for fixing up his mother’s dilapidated house. They run into the vet n her ex, who are there to see the owner abt a contractor to fix up the vet clinic; only to be told that the guy quit cos he lacks the skills to do the difficult job. I love how HS thinks quickly on her feet. She follows them out to ask them to give KC the job. She agrees to act as the guarantor, n the deal is done.
    Sb is following KC again. He figures that DA Park is afraid of him, yet he knows not why.
    KC had left his probation letter in the ambulance, so the hosp contacts Warden Kim abt KC’s liver cancer. The warden comes to take him to the hosp in Seoul for a thorough exam. Separately she goes to the hosp to ask after him that day; she overhears the doc telling GS n Warden Kim that KC needs a liver transplant.
    The 3 guys go for a drink. KC is mad enough to ask God, Why me? GS wisely tells him, Why not him? Why him is not impt, but what to do now is. He has to be an angel to be so wise.
    GS suddenly realizes who it is that he sees sitting next to him on the bus in his vision.
    Dr. Jung goes to the hills to help little animals again. When she comes out, KC having walked a long distance on his way back from Seoul, is waiting for her at her car. They ride together into town. She doesn’t seem afraid of him anymore.
    He starts to fix up his mom’s house bit by bit. I’d like to see him turn it into a decent place to live.
    Early next morning, he begins work on her animal hosp. It has a fantastic view of the harbor. He stares at her in amazement. He says he needs to ask her a question, cos he doesn’t know the answer. I love the way he talks so innocently, yet pointedly. There is so much punch to his innocence that it almost knocks her out!
    KC: “My friend has had a lousy life. He has missed out on so many things. He hasn’t been anywhere. He has never been in love. He has no money, no education, he has nothing. Can a guy like that go date, be in love w a girl like anyone else?
    She looks at him incredulously. He concludes she must think not. Without missing a beat he says: I guess that is ridiculous. I’ll tell my friend it is not possible, so that he won’t dream such dreams.”
    That’s just heart breaking enough to melt her heart!

  125. 125 : KDaddict Says:

    That’s the end of Ep 3.
    It ends with him asking this very loaded question.
    They’ve been getting to know each other in their various encounters. She is interested n curious abt him. That’s the beginning of something beautiful.
    Meanwhile, Kim Bum is impressive. Acting w such a veteran as JWS, he holds his own. I only see GS, the wannabe angel. I don’t see Kim Bum, the idol star at all. He lost 15-20 lbs, lost his baby fat, n we discover a real actor underneath. I love his acting here more than Lee Min Ho’s in City Hunter, becos that script only calls for him to se unhappy. So except for the brief moments that he spent w Kim RaRa, he could only wear one expression of unspoken pain thru the whole show. This script allows KB to exercise his acting chops. We get 2 stars to love for the price of one. Plus the pretty Han Ji Min, w a natural acting style too!

  126. 126 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 4, Part 1:
    Dr. Jung is flustered by his question. Without missing a beat, he concludes that it must be impossible for such a guy to date n to have a girl love him too. “I’ll tell my friend it is not possible, so that he won’t dream such dreams”.
    You can see by her expression that she is trying to keep pace w him, while being mighty curious: What he has done, where he has been, so that he has entirely missed out on life. She asked, but he is nebulous. They talk abt how to decorate her place instead.
    They have to go buy materials.
    KC: I’m not saying we have to go together, but we’ve to go to Seoul. If you don’t like them, I can bring them back. Going back n forth to Seoul would take a whole day, n cost money.
    From a month of a less accomplished actor, this might sound passive-agressive. But he is most reasonable in his argument. Sth abt his delivery makes you want to pinch his face or plant a kiss on it, n you can’t decide which. Isn’t it genius?
    At exactly the right time, his childhood friend HS drives over an old truck for his use. He is ecstatic!
    The guy who gave false testimony at his trial, Lung Hyuk, is trailing him, but is in turn chased by 2 others, sent by the DA. They are thugs who have a buddy in custody. They “work” for the DA in exchange for him freeing their buddy. That leaves no doubt what kind of a guy the DA is.
    GS goes to see KC’s son, Im Chung at school. Turns out IC is a genius student. GS follows him home. Haha! It is the same collapsing bldg that was Kim NN’s home in City Hunter! He is living w a good friend of his mother’s who is in a bad situation herself. He knows that his living there makes things more difficult for this woman.
    KC takes Jung Ji Na on a tour of display homes n cafes before going to buy materials. He sketches diagrams based on what he has just seen n her reactions to them. JN is obviously surprised n impressed w his ability, n likes him enough to take him for a meal. How can anyone who eats like a cow be so good-looking? It’s just the camera looking at his face, framed by the most lousy haircut. Makes you realize JWS is just one seriously good-looking man.
    They stop at a food stall. He eats it as if it was his last meal. He loves that junk food, but she is beginning to care abt him, cos she nags him abt it. He says he has never thought of a future. I surmise that hurts her too. They go shopping for his clothes. She buys him a shirt. With perfect timing, fireworks explode over their heads. They run to the rooftop of the highest bldg in that area for the view. He can’t believe it is true that he lives to experience a day like this, a moment like this. When he says so, we don’t see a shred of JWS the big movie star, we see Yang Kang Chil, the simpleton. Ah, the beauty of his acting!
    In the car, he rambles off a list of things he wants to do, in case he only has a few months left to live. That too gives her food for thought.

  127. 127 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 4, Part 2:
    Her face collapses. She is more upset than he abt the prospect of him dying in a few months, n probably surprised that he takes his liver cancer in stride. You can’t help but have some admiration for sb who is so above the fears of dying. As he drives her home, her ex is waiting for her. They go inside. She asks her ex the same Qn that KC was pondering: What’d he like to do if he only has a few months left? He brushes it off.
    Ah, GS takes the bus w KC’s son, Im Chung, just like in his vision. GS goes thru several photos in the young man’s bag when he is asleep. A lifetime captured in a few photos that tell of his parentage, n the 2 men in his mom’s short sad life.
    Kim Bum shines in this segment. There is no trace of the cutie pie in BoF. Surprise, surprise! He is every inch a good actor.
    GS tries to talk KC into accepting his son.
    GS: You need a liver transplant, for your own sake, n that of your mom.
    KC: I won’t let my mother see me die. I’ll climb into the sea myself b4 the end.
    Sigh! That gets me right there in my chest, just as I’m sure what he rambles off innocently gets JN in hers. I love the way this show and this guy resonant with us.
    GS: Don’t you feel bad? Feel cheated for dying b4 having lived?
    With one flare of his nostrils, JWS shows us what KC feels. That’s supreme economy of superb acting.
    GS: He is a good kid. Let’s send him to a U.S. univ.
    He proceeds to give KC many reasons to live by getting a liver fr his son.
    GS: Don’t feel bad. Just believe in me!
    That pretty much sums up what a guardian angel does!
    GS follows it up by taking the kid to the hosp. He is beside himself w joy when he finds out the kid has AB blood type just like KC.
    KC’s mom is real happy to find out she has a grown grandson, n is ready to dote on him, except that the young man sees the sad condition of their house n accuses GS of lying to him abt sending him abroad, n rightly so.
    Hyuk Suk finds KC an abandoned barn to use as his workshop. It is impt to have ppl who genuinely care abt you and will go to bet for you. HS is his angel too, provided she doesn’t let her jealousy get the better of her n turn on him later.
    Coming out of the barn, KC runs into Tenngie, who leads him to JN, caught in an animal trap. What a smart doggie!
    He rescus her fr the trap, carries her down the hill. What does he want for rescuing her? She asks. She names some things that were on his bucket list. A movie? Taking a train? Going to the zoo? He hesitates. KC: What if what I want is really big?
    Oops. Is he gonna be greedy now, n ask for an arm n a leg? A kiss? Asks her to be his gf? That’d spoil everything!
    KC: 2 movies. Not 1 movie, but 2?
    JN smiles in relief n satisfaction, as do we.
    JN: OK, 2 movies, but there r conditions.
    Shoot! What conditions?
    JN: You have dinner, not snacks, junk food. And you think of the future once in a while.
    KC still carrying her: I’ve never had anyone speak to me so warmly, tenderly.
    In the truck, he asks: We go to 2 movies. When?
    JN: Next week, when I go to Seoul for a meeting.
    See? That is the future in which the 2 r linked.
    He carries her out of his truck. It is observed by her ex n her father. He passes her to his ex. She looks happy in KC’s arms, not in her ex’s.
    KC goes home. Sb is waiting for him. It is that same guy who gave false testimony in court, Oh Yung Huk.
    GS is having a nightmare at this moment. He sees KC hit by a truck n falling into the water.
    It gives him, and us, ill forebodings.

    @KDaddict

    Your recaps are making me want to rewatch! Unfortunately I don’t have time these few weeks to do so… :(

  129. 129 : KDaddict Says:

    @jangerr:
    Glad u like my recaps. I’ve decided to love this show deeply rather than watch several shows promiscuously. :)
    This is one show that is worth rewatching, becos we didn’t know what to expect the 1st time around.

  130. 130 : jangerr Says:

    @KDaddict

    Hahaha! I understand your feelings about ‘promiscuity’… It’s exactly how I feel too – that it leads to a lack of depth… I’m trying to limit myself to following 2 shows at a time and I picked them judiciously.

    However, just last week, I happened to watch another show accidentally – it was on tv and I had nothing else to watch then – and I fell in love with it! If you are not following it, you should consider doing so. The lead actor is one class act!!! The show is Brain and for him alone, it is worth watching!

  131. 131 : KDaddict Says:

    @jangerr:
    We r reading each other’s minds. Soon as Shin got a Daesang, I started asking abt that show on its thread. They all say its gt acting, without telling me much else. Is it a melodrama? The story seems tense n full of angst? How is the leading lady, both the actress n her char? Can you tell me?
    I’ll probably succumb to it, soon as I get caught up w the recaps here, up to ep 10. Meanwhile, this show is becoming tense w ep 10!

  132. 132 : jangerr Says:

    @KDaddict

    I’m not sure if I can tell you enough to do justice to the actor. Also, I’ve only watched 3 episodes in the midst of the show and have just started now to watch it from the beginning.

    The show is a medical drama with romance thrown into it (as usual in kdrama). The protaganist is an extremely brilliant neurosurgeon. Unfortunately his brilliance is matched by his arrogance and impatience to succeed. The actor, Shin Ha Kyun, literally breathes and lives this role. He played it so well that you admire and hate him at the same time. Not only that, he also juggles a fine balance between a brutish masculinity and a hint of emotional vulnerability. Watching him is like being a moth which is drawn to the fire. You’re scared yet fascinated and you can’t help being drawn…

    As for the leading lady, I’ve not seen much of her as yet. First time I saw her was years ago in Famous Princesses and I wasn’t impressed. Next was in Stars Falling From The Sky but I stopped after a couple of episodes because of her… However, I find her tolerable here. So far, not outstanding but nothing to quibble about too. Am keeping my fingers crossed!

  133. 133 : KDaddict Says:

    @jangerr,
    Jennie just weighed in on that thread, saying that the leading lady has a weak role, rather in capable n incompetent as a doctor. That’s not v attractive. I almost want to start watching it, but see the last few comments there fr jennie & corrie.

  134. 134 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict Just ignore the leading lady in Brains. She’s not important in the drama. The focus is on Shin and his take as Jeckyll & Hyde in the guise of Dr Lee GM. Most of us enjoy this drama because this is about him primarily and we just tolerate Choi.

  135. 135 : kanha Says:

    @Jangerr: I didn’t know that you watch Brain too cos never see your comment there. It seem like most of us watch brain by accident on tv and come to like it :-) As for the lead actress, I find that her acting is not bad, its just not too good and MR SHIN acting makes us overlook that point.
    @KDaddict: like your recaps about padam padam :-) .

  136. 136 : KDaddict Says:

    Padam Padam recap Ep 5, Part1:
    KC goes home to find Oh Yung Huk waiting for him. He gives chase. GS wakes up from his night of KC dying. He runs like a mad man down the street looking for KC. Oh, it’s good to have a guardian angel.
    GS wants KC to stick w him, but KC says that compared to dying a slow death from liver cancer, being knocked down by a truck isn’t a bad alternative. GS analyzes the situation regarding Oh and Park. It’s basically a 3-pronged relationship, so the two that r in an alliance wins. The key in this matter is the evidence, the bloody knife used to commit murder 16 years ago.
    JN’s ex fixes up her ankle. He is no doubt jealous that JN gets carried home in KC’s arms.
    Next morning, KC n GS work at JN’s place. You get 2 silly guys talking abt getting DA Park to pay 200 million won as compensation for putting KC in jail. It feels like 2 kids talking abt playing cops n robbers. JN’s ex takes the opportunity to query them abt their imprisonment. Spurred by jealousy, his intention is to put KC in his place. KC answers truthfully that he was there for 16 years for a murder that he didn’t commit. JN is embarrassed for KC, which means she cares abt him now.
    OH and Park meet to discuss selling the evidence to Park. Oh secretly taped the meeting.
    Meanwhile, KC’s hurt pride makes him continue to ignore JN, until her ex brings over rice wine n food stall goodies as peace offering. GS is so cute, cos he wouldn’t start eating until KC tells him to. GS explains how KC saved his life when others picked on him, n beat up on him. KC fought 7 goons n won, but was put in solitary confinement for 2 months. JN gets another reason to think well of KC. GS is not touching the wine. He says that cos he’s an angel, really; He is not crazy! Haha.
    Just then, KC’s son drops by, n calls him Appa adorably. JN’s eye widened. She is clearly upset that KC has such a grown son. She challenges KC on what his said abt not ever having looked at women or lived life. Awkwardness ensued. KC explains that while in hi school, there was this girl who came to him to sleep w him on the day she was jilted by her lover. Next day, she dropped him to elope w her lover, a sunbae fr the same school. That he has only known abt this son for a month. This woman suddenly died. That’s how the son came to live here.
    JN’s ex accuses her of acting jealous just now. She claims she only feels sympathy for KC, but doesn’t deny that she was upset cos it mattered to her if she was lied to (abt his past).

    so far the best drama for me patiently waiting:)

  138. 138 : jangerr Says:

    @135 kanha

    Yup, I haven’t gone to the Brain thread yet. The main reason is because I landed on Brain accidentally in the midst of a busy period. Will definitely check out the thread soon!

    Also, PP is still my priority at the moment…

    @ KDaddict

    Not to worry, the leading lady’s role in Brain is not central to the story so can easily be ignored… Watch it for Shin! As I’ve said before and will say again, the show is worth watching for him alone!

  139. 139 : KDaddict Says:

    Oh dear! You guys keep singing the praises of Brain. Now I might not be able to wait till I finish the recaps for PP to start watching it. Maybe I’ll start tmr. Right now I love METS too. Hooray!

    Kim Bum does really make a beautiful angel! O:-)

  141. 141 : KDaddict Says:

    Padam Padam recap Ep 5, part 2:
    KC, his mom n GS go to school to greet the principal, who is real glad to get such an outstanding pupil as his son Jung Ah. Meanwhile the son gets picked on by another boy, becos a pretty girl shows that she likes him.
    Evidently satisfied w KC’s explanation abt how he came to have such a grown son, JN asks him to meet her at the train station in 90 mins. It’s both touching n funny to see him run to borrow money fr HS to spend on his date, as excitedly as a teenage boy on his 1st date. Unfortunately, they run into their nosy neighbor beside the train; JN afraid to be seen w him. But they do end up going to the zoo together, n having a good time.
    KC asks: for sb who only gets to ride a train for the 1st time at 35, who sees a rabbit, a lion for the 1st time at 35, how much should he get in compensation? For a mother who is picked on becos her son is a convict, how much should be her compensation? I see a woman as fine as you, but I can’t ever say let’s go steady. How much is that worth in compensation?
    She has no answer. They go on talking. He says she doesn’t seem afraid of animals. He asks what she is afraid of. What passes thru her mind r scenes of her father slapping her mother n kicking the young criminal at his arrest. I think she is afraid of her father, of his violence, of the strong beating up the weak. Instead of answering, she ask him the same question.
    He gets a flashback:
    We see that JN’s young uncle stabs KC, who drops to the ground. Then Park comes from behind n stabs her uncle. After that, Park panics, n puts the bloody knife in KC’s hand, when KC is too hurt to move.
    KC says: Being afraid and being wary are two different things. I’m afraid of ppl. I’m wary of ppl.
    Her expression shows that there is resonance. They are alike. They are both good kind souls, who are afraid of ppl who hurt others.
    JN changes the subject. What happened to the person who caused you to be imprisoned?
    KC probably thinking of Park, says: Waiting for me to seek revenge.
    JN: I think forgetting is the best revenge.

    GS seems to be growing wings on his back.

    On the way back from the zoo in Seoul, JN goes into a shop to buy men’s briefs. I thought it was mighty forward of her to buy him briefs on their 1st date. Turns out she is buying them on her mother’s behalf for sb her mother cared abt. She sends them to the prison her mother visited in care of Warden Kim! So the woman who cared abt KC was JN’s mom!
    They are in the crowded Seoul subway, their faces inches apart. He smells her hair, measures her hand against his. They have to run to catch the last train to Tongyeong. They just make it, w 2 secs to spare. Caught in the joy of the moment, n the beauty of her laugh, he leans fwd to kiss her. Her eyes r wide-open like a deer caught in the headlight……

    I’m sorry,but Choi Jung won (Yoon Ji Hye in,,Brain”) is an very beautiful korean actress! Not only a natural beauty,but very talented too! Just watch her in ,,The kingdom of winds” and you’ll see what I mean ! It’s right, in ,,Brain” she is too skinny ,but her beauty still shine…

    Ep 6:
    Overcome by the joy of the moment, he kisses her. It spooks her cos she isn’t ready for it. She behaves like she is angry w him. I think she is plain scared. Even tho I’m a woman n usually side w the female char, I feel sorry for KC. Look at the way he stands when she drives away from the railway station without him. His posture alone is enough to show his dejection.
    As he goes home, Yung Huk contacts him, to tell him to tell Park that they both know where the evidence is.
    GS keeps seeing KC die, n then GS passes out. Ahhh, the birthing pains to become an angel!
    KC’s son queries KC why he is brought to live with them. I love the way he walks when he trails behind their son! It shows a “devil may care” attitude, but also happiness! How does one convey so much by walking a few steps? JWS shows amply that acting is not done with the face alone.
    KC goes to the barn to fix it up, but ends up making a statuette of Tenggie for JN. The script has lovely ways of showing feelings. JN n her ex come by. When KC offers her tea, JN wouldn’t even take it! Furthermore, she admonishes her ex Kim, for being too kind out of sympathy, so it causes his ex to misunderstand it for love. This is hurtful n is meant for KC’s ears.
    KC drives away, but doubles back to confront JN.
    KC: Did I do sth so wrong when I kissed you? Everything u did with me was out of sympathy? I kissed u cos I liked u. I should apologize for that? A guy likes a girl. What is the problem? If there is any apologizing to be done, u should be the one to do it. He is outraged. I think he shouts some sense into her.
    He ex observes the scene, n gets jealous. Interestingly, he proposes, tho they broke up earlier cos he refused to get married. She refuses cos she know he is doing it out of jealousy. They’ve been down this road b4.
    Out of his extreme anger, KC drives to see DA Park. GS goes w him. It is cute n funny how GS follows him around like a puppy. KC shows Park the photos in the cellphone left by Yung H. Park being evil n unrepentant, calls sb to get rid of KC after their meeting.
    JN’s father is being phased out as a detective. Park is behind this.
    KC is looking for JN to talk to her. He n GS go to where she is having dinner w her father, only her father is drunk, n starts beating up the kids at the next table. KC sees n recognizes him as the detective who treated him the exact same violent way at his arrest. Just then he sees JN calling him Appa. He runs to the phone booth across the street to call GS, who has gone to park the truck, to take him away. A truck careens towards the phone booth, smashes it w KC is in it!!

  144. 144 : KDaddict Says:

    It’s a pleasant surprise that there are 2 eps of PP this week, instead of some year end special.
    And oh my! Are they sensational!
    Ep 7 opens with another miracle that saves Kang Chi’s life Again (after the one in the yard of the prison). The guy that framed him for murder sent a heavy truck to press him to the ground like a pancake, but a miracle saves him. In the process, he sees visions of things that happened in the past, things that have puzzled him, disappointed him, angered him, hurt him, concerning ppl’s ill treatment of him. Which ppl? Namely his mother, who hung up on him when he called her that fateful night of the murder; and Ji Na’s father who kicked him and spat on him after he was arrested. The visions show him why they did what they did. It covers a lot of ground in these first 15 mins.
    Furthermore, this ep shows us how Ji Na really feels abt KC, despite her fears, despite herself, with nothing being said.
    This is a tightly written script with not a wasted moment.
    There was a connection between KC n JN’s mother who believed in his innocence, but died of an asthma attack before she could do anything to clear his name.
    But the young man who was killed was JN’s father’s younger brother whom he raised. So JN’s father was real mad at his wife for trying to clear the guy who was arrested and prosecuted for killing his brother. You see, KC and JN’s connection runs deep.
    KC finds an opportunity to apologize to JN for liking her, for having mistaken her sympathy for interest. While he apologizes humbly, she looks like she has the air let out of her, n is abt to cry any moment.
    KC’s childhood girlfriend, the divorced woman w a small daughter, is blatantly chasing him now. JN darts her looks of poison.
    KC’s son Chung Ah is now living with KC, his mom n Gong Suk. Chung Ah hears fr her aunt that there was another man in his mother’s life besides KC. He is trying to track down this man who is in the U.S. Meanwhile, some serious bonding goes on within this family as they live together, go to the jim ji ban together, n sing together. That is so sweet to behold.
    Gook Suk tries hard to protect KC fr ill n promote his happiness. GS wants to keep CA close at hand in case KC need his liver.
    KC says: What kind of evil schemes are you hatching? How can you do that to a 17 year old?
    GS: “I am Your guardian angel. I don’t know abt anyone else.” Ahhh!
    KC takes JN out for a picnic by the lake. They end up swimming at KC’s urging. It is dark but there are schools of florescent fish around them. The visual effect is simply magical, until KC holds her by the waist n raises her up from under the water like Venus rising out of the sea. That is beyond magical.
    “I try hard not to court you, but it doesn’t work. Can we not date? Can we?”
    But what is great abt this show, this particular episode cannot be communicated by even the most detailed review. This is a case where the total is greater than the sum of its parts. The sexual tension, the tenderness, the expectation, etc. are there when they exchange a look, or try hard not to , or when they brush past each other. I don’t think I even blinked during these 65 mins! I know I held my breath at a no. of places.
    If I have to pick one perfect episode of any KD I’ve ever watched, it’d be this one.
    Love Jung Woo Sung, the writers n the PD team!

  145. 145 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 8:
    There really is no shortage of good, even gt, looking Korean men in KDs, so why is JWS so moving with just his face framed by the camera, with no adornments, no fancy hair or dress?
    KC asks JN if they can date. She says she needs to think about it. KC doesn’t understand what there is to think abt: either you like to date sb or you don’t, but they agree to let her take a week to decide on the matter.
    GS wants to show HS his newly minted wings, but they won’t show themselves to HS.
    After coming out of the water, KC uses his shirt to dry JN’s hair. It reminds me of Robert Redford shampooing Meryl’s hair for her in Out of Africa. Both scenes have an unspoken smoldering sexuality.
    KC asks if she believes in miracles. She says her becoming mother n daughter w her mother is a miracle.
    KC takes her home. Park has been waiting to see KC. He gives KC a bank book w a 500M won deposit. He says he’ll give him the PIN n seal when KC finds Yung Huk, that this money is his compensation, n that it’s best KC doesn’t think abt taking revenge against P.
    But the mention of compensation really sets him off.
    KC: Fr my perspective, it is not taking revenge, but finding the truth.
    Wow, that’s really well said. The same thing can be done w diff objectives, n that changes its meaning completely!
    KC goes to work on her apt, but ends up making a statuette of her. He’s counting the days until he can get her answer.
    GS receives some photos of Yung Huk’s father fr his contact. They decide to look for YH’s father, for that’ll lead them to YH.
    YH talks to Park abt selling him the evidence of the murder (the bloody knife) for twice the amt they agreed upon.
    JN asks a doctor sunbae abt KC’s cancer. JN admits to being concerned n curious abt KC, n wanting to do what she can for him. Her ex is miffed. He goes to pick a fight w KC. KC sweetly obliges, then takes him home.
    KC’s son Jung Ah is being bullied at school again, but he stands up for himself. I think he is a disciplined n self-respecting young man. It’s so nice to suddenly have such a lovely grown son one day! But he is trying to contact the other man her mom knew by email.
    KC sees JN looking for little animals that may have fallen into the gullies n hurt themselves. He picks up on what needs to be done, n next day goes to build bridges for them. JN is suitably moved. When they work together, it rains on them, so they run to his barn for cover.
    They talk; she says the same things her mother did when she visited KC in jail.
    KC: My first love said the same thing.
    She’s jealous until she finds out that they never held hands cos they were separated by a piece of glass, until she hears that the woman just stopped coming one day, becos she died in a car accident.
    JN: Live well fr now on. She’s looking at you fr above, just as my mom is looking at me.
    It’s near dawn, JN wants to go home. When KC brings the truck, she seems to be asleep. As he leans over to kiss her, she wakes.
    KC: I want to kiss u, but if u don’t want to, may be next time then. She looks into his eyes, pulls fwd, n kisses him on the lips. He closes his eyes, barely moves a muscle, but he looks like his soul is floating away w that kiss…….
    How do you communicate that you’re in 7th heaven with eyes closed n facial muscles not moving??

    Hey girls, is PP a sad drama? I gave up after the first episode, well, not really gave up but decided to wait until it has completed to watch all at once. I just couldn’t handle sad dramas.

  152. 152 : KDaddict Says:

    #146, #148, #150:
    FYI, all English KD forums contain recaps. Some sites, like dramabeans r famous for them. Ppl read them for many reasons. Obviously, if you don’t want to find out what happens in the story, just don’t read them. That’s easy, right? How does their existence hurt your viewing pleasure as long as u DON’T read them?
    #150,
    I refer you to page 10 of the Comments on the Brain thread. Corrie made the same complaint. Look at how others respond.

  157. 157 : KDaddict Says:

    @DreaMer-153:
    Well, I’m glad my recaps got u to watch this. You can thank me later. :) No one knows whether this will have a happy ending. With KDs, which r shot while they r broadcasted, not even the PD team knows the ending b4 hand. I hate sad endings too. IMO, this show is too good to miss, n Kang Chil, Gook Soo n Ji Na r chars too lovely to not to get to know, whatever the ending.
    @luciana-156:
    This show is aired on jTBC, a cable channel, not one of the big 3’s. The Big 3’s r free for viewers. Cable is not. So cable has a much smaller viewership. 2 is an exceptionally high rating on cable. There is nothing wrong w 1.5

  161. 161 : KDaddict Says:

    @luciana-156:
    You also need to understand that this show has no big explosions, no car or helicopter chases, no war scenes, no big name actress, no F4. It is a small intimate drama, basically a boutique production for a niche market. What that means is that it will attract a more mature audience who likes superb acting, in quiet shows at a slower pace. It doesn’t have the broad appeal of sth like IRIS, e.g. So ratings of 1.5-2.0 on a cable channel is super indeed. Numbers r good, but to be meaningful, they need to be interpreted accurately.

    @Mic-159, 160,
    Thx. I replied to it.

    I love writer. She does beautiful and wonderful job. She knows what true love is and what it means having relationship with others. Of course, actor Jung woo sung does great job. It seems like he knows about unconditional love and friendship! He absorbed everything in him. I can see his eyes. It is wonderful!!
    I was watching especially episode12 many times. ‘like-child’, heart warming seen. Best seen with Jina and koosoo!
    Such a wonderful drama because there is wonderful message everywhere in this padam padam. It doesn’t really matter sad or happy ending.If it is helping people to alive and open the eyes for now, we can bring our best and give thanks in any situation of life. I hope the writer Ms.No MI Kyung would bring this kind of precious message forever. I believe this is her vision which gives incredible energy for us. Thank you very much for having the hope of life.

    Kim Bum is quite good in this drama….I didn’t realize just how good he was, until I started watching.

    Kim Bum looks pretty cool. He looked odd when I first saw him in this drama (too used to his flower boy looks then) but the more close ups I see of him, the better he looks. In fact he looks fantastic, so much more attractive than his F4 days! Daebak drama!

  171. 171 : IRENE Says:

    i JUST HOPE THAT THE WRITER WILL GIVE A NICE ENDING TO THIS DRAMA. After all the injustice, pain and trouble that the main actor encountered he deserves a better and happy life with the one he loves. Jung WOO SUNG IS SUCH A GREAT ACTOR, he knows how to deliiver his role with depth that touches the audience. There is an amazing chemistry between the leads. Although they were just acting it seems that there feeling for each other were true. I can say that it could be listed in a classical korean drama

    Jung Woo Sung is the greatest korean actor !He has style , sensuality, a huge charisma and he has sex appeal too…my god,he attract the women like honey attract the flies !

    I wasn’t going to say this if you don’t come back.
    Your sentence that you wrote to me in #148 in correct French should be:
    OH! Voila ,t’es moche,toi, est possible que tu souffre de megalomanie,mon pauvre petit …con!
    which translates as:
    OH! Voila, you’re ugly, you, you may suffer from megalomania … my poor little idiot!
    Maybe you have now learnt fr the Brain thread that ppl DO often post recaps on KDs. Every one just told you not to read them if u aren’t interested. There was no reason to swear at me or call me names, in French n in Romanian. FYI, we don’t do that around here.
    We don’t run into many Romanians here. By behaving the way you do, you give us a bad impression of Romanians.

  177. 177 : Mystisith Says:

    Some people seem to find this drama sad. I think it has an optimistic undertone. It shows that unfairness is the most widely shared thing among humans. What makes the difference is the way we react / adapt to it. All the cast is doing tremendous job, including Ji Na’s hateful father who knows only violence to solve all his problems. I must confess a soft spot for ” Noodles ” Kim Bum’s interpretation : Geez, what a metamorphosis since BOF. Acting, looks, everything. If he’s not a star already, then he will become one for sure.
    Kudos to the writer and to the filming team too for the cinematographic quality. By the way, does anyone knows where it takes place ? Those coastal and countryside landscapes are jawdroppingly beautiful ! To quote Ji Na : The show seems ” to be not of this world “.

    This is interesting drama and a good one. It is sad that sometimes people are blind and blame the not guilty one. The bad guy always get away. Hopefully the Kang Chil live happily ever after with Ji Na. I hate Ji Na’dad is so hateful. I wonder how he feel when he found out that Kang Chil is not a murderer. The real murderer should get punish real good.

    well i guess kang chill will die , since the last miracle aleady happened i dont think he will be able to get well as far as miracles goes except his angle does some thing which i dought he will, so i have come to the conclusion this will end badly for kang chil , thing is i which the writers end it like they ended scent of a women , i mean in scent of a woman we know she has cancer but we dont get to see her die so we are consoled she lived for a while with the person she loves , i hope they end pp the same way, i hate melodramas but i have prepared my mine for what ever ending this writer gives us

  193. 193 : KDaddict Says:

    The show started with a bang, but ended w a whimper. The writer gave us time-warping miracles n a wing-sprouting angel-to-be at first; it promised to be daring n diff; but it settled for a “living every day is a miracle” ending. What a waste of possibilities!
    The first 10 eps were really really good. Jung Woo Sung’s acting was outstanding. Kim Bum was also a complete surprise. I’m impressed that he is willing to shed his BoF idol boy image, to earn strips for real acting. I hope he goes far!
    The rest of the eps dawdled, floundered, n settled into a wimpy finish. It wouldn’t hurt so much if it hadn’t been so awesome at first! And,
    What an utterly, utterly boring thread!

  194. 194 : tc Says:

    Since this drama had finished airing as compared to METs, I decided to watch this drama first. I was really intrigued with the fantasy plot whereby Kim Bum’s role was the guardian Angel to Kang Chil. After 2 eps, I was addicted to the drama and could not wait for Kang Chil to take revenge on the bad guys and wanted to see how he built up his career as skilled contractor.

    Unfortunately, after witnessing the so called 3 miracles, the 2nd half of the drama went downhill and turned into a melodrama and pessimistic undertone! JWS was awesome and had very good chemistry with HJM. However, I did not like the twist in the plot and don’t understand why the writer changed the drama’s undertone in the second half into a realistic and melodramatic one! Audience would have expected miracles and fantasy throughout the show after having to accept the fact in the early stage of the drama that there was a real angel and Kang Chil even cheated deaths several times!

    At the end, after witnessing 5 eps of tears and diminishing hope of Kang Chil’s survival, I was unsure whether he was alive or still dying!

  195. 195 : jangerr Says:

    @ KDaddict and tc

    Totally agree with both of you. After investing so much time and emotion into the first half, really felt ‘cheated’ by the sudden change in direction in the second half! It’s like it was written by two different writers who didn’t agree with each other… What a bummer!

  196. 196 : nitanita Says:

  198. 198 : corrie Says:

    @Reni197,you must watch this drama,it is a great drama ,with a complex story,a beautiful music & great actors,like Jung woo Sung,witch is the perfect for this kind of dramas,romantic,a little bit comedy,but I consider him an Artist, that’s means much more than a simple actor! He can be a very good movie or drama director, he is already a movie producer . This drama and all the Jung woo Sung dramas and movies must been watched,you lost a lot if you don’t!

  199. 199 : Hanako Says:

    The story is sad, I do not like the whole story, especially the main actor acting so harsh and stupid..ofcourse that was written in the drama but I think it is not a real good movie comparing to other movies. I love the main actress, she is beautiful

    Great storyline with amazing love theme (not only man & woman love but also the mother love, father love & brotherhood love), Oscar worthy acting fr the cast esp Jung Woo Sung & Han Ji Min..and the wonderful message from the drama – live every moment, for every moment is a miracle! “Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is love” (1Corinthians 13;:13 NLT)

    Like this drama. A fan of Kim Bum. Don t understand the rating system. It looks it was not well received??????

  230. 230 : erychris Says:

    Just finished watching this drama. And in my opinion, this is one the best drama ever. It has a good storyline,very inspiring, so many lessons we can learn from this drama. The love between man and woman, mother and son, father and son, brotherhood very touching and pure. I enjoy every moment, sometimes i laugh, sometimes i cried. One note for kim bum, he is very suitable to be an angel, look cute, baby face, sincere annd good looking. Good job !! Dont miss it..

  231. 231 : Tamera Sun Jin Says:

    Jinae’s father is a real asshole. He is the real thug in this movie. If I would have had a father like that I would have cursed him to hell

  232. 232 : Tamera Sun Jin Says:

    Jang Gil’s mother is a real pain. She’s probably a typical bag like all the old Korean women.

  233. 233 : Tamera Sun Jin Says:

    Why are all the screenwriters older women and very plain? Everyone of them!
    Including Noh Hee Kyung

  234. 234 : Tamera Sun Jin Says:

    Her writing makes no sense and it makes me angry

  235. 235 : Raymond Sheldinh Says:

    I hate the story from episode 16 until 20. It begins to fall apart and be repetitious and redundant like a lot of these Korean dramas where the ending is weak and is cut short. This is no exception.

  236. 236 : witlily Says:

    This drama is very beautiful story, if you like romance story this drama for you <3

  237. 237 : meia Says:

  239. 239 : Kevin Says:

    in the philippines they air this dram it’s really good an angel come to life wow fantastic:D

  240. 240 : KBfan Says:

    Kim Bum’s acting is so good. His portrayal as the guardian angel is impressive. He is really into his character, and he’s good with emotional scenes. Even though this drama is good, it’s not a big hit because it wasn’t broadcasted on KBS, SBS, or MBC. I’m disappointed, but oh well.
