Synopsis

This is a drama about the growth record of young people who strive to achieve their dreams and love without despair in a generation where dreams have become a luxury and the passionate record of young people who beeline for their dreams in their own way, presenting excitement and empathy.

Sa Hye Joon (Park Bo Gum) is smart and handsome. He is a nice guy and a popular model, but what he really wants is to become an actor. He has auditioned for many acting roles, but hasn’t found success yet. Unfortunately, Sa Hye Joon doesn’t have much presence as an actor. Meanwhile, Ahn Jung Ha (Park So Dam) works as a make up artist. Bright and cheerful on the outside but lonely on the inside, Jung Ha takes out her stress and frustrations by fan-girling over idols.

    I’ll watch it here ilovedorama.ru

  3. 3 : Lu Lu Says:

    Hate his hair, why cut like that? He looks like dumb2, his haircut last time not so short army cut like this. 🤦‍♀️ Hate it. His face alrdy looks so young and cut hair like kiddo 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

  4. 4 : happyghost Says:

    Hahaha… yes, this hairstyle does not suit him. Does not bring out his personality. I prefer the longish and curly hair that he spotted in Encounter. It made him look soooo sexy…?? 😗

  5. 5 : Jjamppong ;) Says:

    amazing cast & drama so far!!! the family dynamics are so relatable (and the grandpa is the cutest darn thing). Park bo gum and park so dam are doing amazing, dream team <333

  6. 6 : happyghost Says:

    I so want to watch this drama, plus a few other interesting ones introduced here by Koreandrama. But unfortunately I dont really know the reason why we do not get to screen at the same time as other countries. My guess is, its something to do with “business/marketing” contracts.

    Anyways, its only a matter of time when our chance to watch will come.

    Note : Hope my post #4 above will not be taken as rude, saying that PBG looked sexy in long hair. I didn’t mean anything bad by it.

    This is going to be an interesting drama to watch. When we were in their shoes, we were too busy learning and striving to find our place in the world, that we had not stopped to look or reflect on our life along the way.

    Now, we have a chance to look in on how Sa Hye Jun and Han Jung Ha make it thro their trials and tribulations.

    Fighting!! Jiayu !!

    I like park bo gum but I’m dropping this drama. It’s very boring and no chemistry between the leads really and the episode progression is just very slow.

  11. 11 : Chocopie Says:

    Actually, I quite like this particular drama. Its right down my alley. Plus, Park Bo Gum is one of my favorite actors, among the few others that I like.

    Unfortunately the tv station that I subscribed to at home here is not screening it. So I’ve to go else where to watch.

    I’ve managed to watch up to episode 4 at this other source. But I’ve decided to stop as I do not feel at ease at this unfamiliar site.

    So bang goes my chance to watch PBG until his military service is over.

    Good nite!

    P/s Haha…. My patience needs to be longer than yours… that is, having to wait for time when tvN is ready to screen the show here, which might be a few months time. Its ok. 😊

    I just came from visiting your social media post. Inspite of your face mask, I am glad to see from your eyes and parts of uncovered face that you are doing fine. One worry less now.

    Continue to take good care of yourself ! And stay safe always. Covid19 is spiking bad in the world. My place here is facing emerging 3rd wave.

    If you would like me msg you privately (Whatsapp) let me know. We’ll think of how I can do it safely.

    Good nite !!

    Watching the lives of Sa Hye Jun and Han Jeong Ha as they strive and work so hard to achieve their dreams is already exhausting. Imagine how much more harder it must have been for them who are right in the midst of it.

    Hard life. To each his own. The Himalaya climbers did not complain….

    Fighting! Jiayu!!

  19. 19 : happyghost Says:

    Charlie Jung (LGBT gay) who had been romantically interested in Sa Hye Jung but was rejected, has died. Was it murder or suicide? Cause of death not yet revealed.

    Been thinking …. what has Charlie Jung’s death to do with Sa Hye Jun, that its featured in the story now??

  20. 20 : chocopie Says:

    My guess is that : Probably malicious and jealous people will use Charlie Jung’s death to smear Sa Hye Jun’s reputation. The purpose is to damage Sa HJ’s rising career.

    Its a competitive world out there..!

    Sa HJ, nothing is over yet. Its not over until its over!

    Fighting!! 🌻🌻

  21. 21 : chocopie Says:

    So, the wild rumours will not spare Sa Hye Jun afterall. They are going to give Sa HJ an upsetting time. Can he come out of it in one piece?

    However, there is good news in the air.. “An uninvited person will help Sa Hye Jun”.

    Who is this good samaritan? I am curious to know. Let’s wait and see.

  22. 22 : chocopie Says:

    An unexpected surprise !!

    If the hot wild news circus surrounding Sa HyevJun could be believed, the unexpected guest who came to help Sa Hye Jun was his ex-girlfriend !! At an interview, she declared that Sa Hye Jun had never associated with Charlie Jung at all.

  23. 23 : happyghost Says:

    There was a scene in last week’s episode where Han JeongHa had asked for a lift home from Won HaeHyo cuz it was raining heavily, and it night was late.

    Won HH who is a close friend of both Han JH and Sa HJ happens to love Han JH too.

    The bone of contention and the ensuing debate among some viewers was that : Sa JH should not have invited Won HH into her home at such a late hour for a drink for reasons, that she lived alone, she’s Sa HJ’s girlfriend, Won HH might misinterpret her invitation, might create gossips, etc. So there was a to and fro of opinions.

    But to Sa JH, the invitation was what it was! A courtesy drink for a friend’s help.

    I’ve been thinking about this situation too. What’s the best solution?

    Apart from respecting Han JH’s decision to extend the invitation, which is one solution, another solution would be to honestly tell Won HH that it was late, cud not invite him in, that she owe him a lunch? I am sure Won HH would accept this explanation…

    Wonder what actually is the outcome…

  24. 24 : happyghost Says:

    Episode 13

    We can see that pressures on Sa HJ and Han JH relationship are building up relentlessly …

    Episode 14

    One day ….

    Han JeongHa said to Sa Hyejun : I love you. Let’s break up !!

    Oh no !! This cannot be true! It’s heartbreaking news. Devastating !! I am so upset!

    We have two more episode to go. Hope they will get back together in the end. Jiayu !! Fighting !

    The sacrifices a rising star/celebrity has to make are just too much.

    Quote from a fan : ‘Celebrities are just people who deserves love and privacy like anyone else.’

    To quote another fan :

    ‘ It is a sad life to be a celebrity when your private life ‘belongs’ to the public and you are punished for doing things normal people do.’

    I think this kind of celebrity culture should be abolished totally.

  25. 25 : happyghost Says:

    If only some people would be as wise as Lori Dechene. She once gave some priceless advice :

    Practise the ‘Pause’

    Pause before assuming.
    Pause before accusing.
    And pause whenever you are about to react harshly.
    You might avoid saying things you’ll later regret.
    Be kind to each other.

    So the drama’s finale episode came, been watched by thousands of viewers all over the world and at home.

    As usual with k-dramas’ trend nowadays, the ending is left open for viewers to make their own choice of the ending. Many viewers have had their say.

    As for me, after having again revisited the circumstances and the breakup of Sa HJ and Han JH, and comparing these to their present situation, I now believe that Han JH did make the right decision when she decided to break up. And it was timely too.

    When Han JH broke up with Sa HJ she still loved him. But she had to break up due :

    1) The timing of their relationship was not conducive for getting into a telationship at a time when SA HJ’s star was beginning to rise. He would be so busy that he would have no time for any anything else in his life. Plus a romantic relationship would only add one more buden on him.

    2) Han JH herself was beginning to run her own businness enterprise. She too would be caught up with the management of the business. Got no time for anything else.

    Both of them were in an unstable phase of their life at that time.

    Sa HJ has his ambitions and goals to achieve. The same with Han JH.

    So conclusion .. the breakup was a positive and constructive action to take at that time..

    Essentially, the breakup allows them the breathing space to accomplish their goals and ambitions and to buiild a foundation for themselves.

    Two years later.. Sa HJ and Han JH met up. By now they have matured, their spirits are settled, their careers in place, and their love for each other is still there. (A love that is serious and true cannot easily be cast away.
    Its a powerful and durable emotion).

    Hopefully.. from now on, Sa HJ and Han JH will find it the right time to come back together again… 💓
