- I'll talk about dramas if I want to
It's so befitting with the tense and brooding moments in the drama. But why can't anyone name the original song title?!?! It's driving me crazy!!! Such a big mystery!!!! I find it odd that no one considers the possibility it is an original score. Which would make sense too. I love the hug too About the hug thing at the end I wish it wasn't something that KY imagined. You know in dramaland, so it's like that's what actually KY wanted to do, but he actually didn't, just imagining. Just like that hilarious reporter Byun case happened earlier.
How this imagination can bring joy and heart-breaking at the same time I'll just cross my finger Really don't know why more ppl aren't watching this. Empress Ki is good and all, but this is soooo adorable. The marriage vow does say, Till death do us part. Is KY supposed to live in lonely misery forever? I was mad at KY for backing away from DJ after that, but the last scene just let us know that he was angry and uncomfortable only bcos the marriage was fake. He wants to love DJ for real! Next week should give us some advance in their relationship.
Thanks for the recap. Literally squealing the entire episode at their adorable cuteness. Why are they so cute??? Also, one thing I don't quite understand is In Ho being mad that Yul showed up. Wasn't In Ho trying to get Da Jung out of the situation??? How was he really going to explain who was going to show up? He should be appreciative even if it's the guy he doesn't want showing up to save Da Jung.
In Ho wanted to be Da Jeong's guardian angel again. He wanted to be her hero in hopes that she would see him with new eyes and come to develop feelings for him. The fact that he couldn't get her out of that mess while Yul, just by showing up, could, is what angered him because it shows his incapacity in being able to assist Da Jeong during emergencies.
Yes, jealousy was involved, but it also highlighted what Yul could do for her that he could not. In Ho was already aware that Da Jeong was beginning to fall for Yul, so he knew that she would only fall deeper when Yul came to her rescue and that's why jealousy and anger overrode the appreciation that he should have felt that he and Da Jeong managed to avoid being framed for having an affair and ruining everyone's reputation and image in the process.
Why is In Ho angry with Yul when his brother is the one who got injured. I believe that his brother was the boyfriend of the woman who died in the accident when he was running away. Would anyone like to take a guess as to who she was. I think this drama is just a breath of fresh air.
It has everything, comical and serious times. Da Jeong fits in perfect with the kids. Yul is just a stiff shirt and Da Jeong is just what he needs. Thanks to the subbers and the writers should get all of the hand shakes available. Nam Da Jung knows that this is a contract marriage and perhaps due to that fact - both unconsciously and consciously when she realized her feelings in episode 7 , she is so focused to "live in the present" and worry about the future later. It might be irresponsible, but somehow one can understand where she is coming from. This episode I really felt for DaJung who keeps confronting a man with crazy mood swings who sometimes smiles, sometimes is cold, all for no reason she can understand.
Dajung is consistent in her warmth, even if she can't tell her husband that she loves him. Yul is the one going thru emotional turmoil as he realizes that he cares for the new wife. I think a lot of Da Jung's "live in the moment" attitude has to do with caring for a father with dementia. She has to live in the moment with him because tomorrow he might forget and she'll have to start all over again.
This is especially so after she learned the exact time frame for her father's cancer and eventual death. Even from the outset Da Jung has seemed a very lonely person. Her only friends are her coworkers and an idol she was following around. So her only other real connection is her father who's set to die in a few months. That kind of loneliness and despair would make anyone afraid of what the future holds. I feel that it's very in character for her to have this fly-the-seat-of-her-pants kind of outlook on life.
It also seems natural to me that this is why she clings so to Kwon Yul and the children. Kwon Yul is a serious and assured man who seems to always have his feet firmly on the ground and is willing to ground Da Jung too.
The children represent youth, freshness, and growth for her. Both are opposite of the life she has been living until now: The Kwon Family has a stability and a hope for the future that she is poised to embrace wholeheartedly. But Nam Da Jung's preoccupation with living in the present did not really strike me as something that is based on a dreary outlook in the future.
It felt more like her personality quirks more than anything else, as a result of her upbringing where she received a lot of love. Remember when she was eating ramen with Kwon Yul? She said Kwon Yul "should not procrastinate doing his homework because it is something he will eventually have to do. But he can put it off long enough in order to enjoy delicious food.
Because isn't it a shame to give up present happiness for something you can do anytime? Nam Da Jung throws herself in the moment in order to enjoy it. She realizes that she might get hurt later on, but it is something she will deal with later on But those impressions of pain I got from her were really present when she got super drunk about her father's prognosis. Also when she got so upset that he forgot her during the wedding. I'm not saying she handles her situation in a dreary manner. In fact, I think her coping mechanism is her constant cheer and bubbly attitude. But neither do I think that the smiling Da Jung is the only aspect to her but just a part of it.
I like your take on DJ's live in the moment attitude. Her naturally inclination is probably upbeat but long term illness especially one like dementia forces you to live in the good moments and endure the bad. I don't find that gloomy, it's a means of coping. Has the drama said how long her father has been sick? Because I'm thinking her dream of becoming a novelist probably faded around the time she became a pap reporter to pay the bills, hospital ones especially.
Nam Da Jung's dad had dementia, that was probably something she had learned to accept. Dad having cancer and dying was an entirely different thing. When dad had dementia and wanted her to get married, she was not planning on doing that because she wanted to stay by his side. But when she found out dad was dying, she now wanted to fulfill his wish. This is an example of why I think she does not have a dreary outlook in her future.
Prime Minister and I: Episode 9 » Dramabeans Korean drama recaps
Instead of focusing on the fact that dad is dying which has not happened yet and something she can deal with when it happens , Nam Da Jung is instead focusing on doing the thing that will make dad happy and content while he is alive - which is to see her get married. Her pain in dad not recognizing her on her wedding day is realistic too Because she was getting married so that dad could fulfill his wish of walking her down the aisle.
Much like I hope Seo Hye Joo would find herself first instead of basing her existence on a man, that is what I hope for Nam Da Jung too - that she won't stay married just because she need them or they need her. She will stay married because she wants to and because her and Kwon Yul love each other. I find DJ's behaviour quite "normal", haha!! Remember that they agreed in the beginning that the marriage would be a contract for 6 months And in DJ's case, is sad what is waiting for her later, if her father dies Ahhhh, I don't have words to explain how enjoyable and hearthwarming this drama is being.
Every episode has the right amount of romance, cuteness, comedy I feel like the writer is playing with us, but in a funny way: And the actors are so good and had such great chemistry. I still don't understand why this drama isn't more popular. Which is not to say the threats aren't genuine in the circumstances posed, but it's nice to see that one domino doesn't necessarily make all the others explode into salty scandal makjang tears. Even Yul's turn as grumpy push-you-away guy which I've seen stretched out before over episodes and episodes Da-jung's upset reaction and the hug didn't feel jarring or sudden in direct contrast - it felt organic and true to the situation as well as the characters.
It does make me wish other elements were more nuanced i. Joon-ki , but if you're going to put the energy into something it might as well be the main couple. If Kwon Yul took longer than half an episode to be the "grumpy push-you-away guy", I'd end up hating the action I'd still understand why Kwon Yul did it, but I'd still hate the action. Prime Minister and I uses a lot of cliches, but the execution makes a world of difference! I think Yool being scared of loving again is very natural, but as you say, it does not overstay its welcome just to draw things out for the sake of melodrama.
It's hard to root for a character when they do not want or do not try to solve their issues, so it makes a lot of kdrama characters unsympathetic when they do this. This drama does not go there. The ones with obsessions, such as In Ho and Hye Joo are presented as the sad people they are, not as ones to admire and swoon over, which is what other dramas do with their leads, who have some of the same issues.
Flawed does not have to mean immovable and willing to angst and wallow in self-pity no matter what the circumstances. One of the things that I like about this drama is that we don't spend too much time episodes with angsty moments and that misunderstandings get resolved right away. Ma Te is all self absorbed and busy taking advantage of women for his own financial gain. Then one day Ma Te decides he wants Bo Tong, and it is as simple for him as one hug.
By comparison, the reasons Yul is struggling to accept his feelings for Da-hung aren't because of selfishness and Yul's abrasive behavior is understandable because we know falling in love and letting go is a process for him. Yul's hug seems so much more genuine. I am reminded of Playful Kiss. There were signs early on that Seung Jo cared for Oh Ha-ni, but it wasn't until the hug that he finally admitted it.
From then on, it was a done deal Seung Jo needed the time to process his feelings, but the hug when he admitted them to Oh Ha-ni was game over. SJ might still tease OH, but he never waivered in loving her. I think PM will be as awesome as Seung Jo. Yul will love Da-jung without waivering. In fact, I believe he has been already even if he himself hasn't figured it all out. Let this hug be Yul finally making the kind of commitment to love Da-jung that all the OTP fans want.
Maybe Park Joon Ki can not fathom how Kwon Yul can "move on" from the death of his sister after only 7 years when he himself is still stuck in the past with his feelings for Seo Hye Joo after 20 years and despite being married to another woman. Seems like his sister is another added reason, not the main one. I don't really get a lot of the angst among some of them, nor do I get why so many cannot seem to move on with life.
If you want to look at it like that, you can also say: We've a guy who can't move on from his first love after years. Love this drama so much. Good chemistry between the leads and significant improvement from Yoona! Loved this episode but in the preview for the episode 8 didn't we see the prime minister rushing to finally kiss Da Jung on a rainy street? That was the kiss from the second episode, where Da Jeong was narrating their "love" to her doubting colleagues at Scandal News.
I can't believes that I say this I saw Love Rain I loovees this drama and OTP Jgs hair, distractin me So, I thinks that's why acting along with real actor are Idol dream Sometimes I do wonder, every second lead with some real talent actor got their lead act after acts with famous actor. And every Idol who act with seasoned actor will surely gains something, I do think those Idol really afraid of their sunbae actor, so they really are trying hard, practices hard.
Watching the two of them together was the main reason I finished watching that series, because there was really not much of a story. This is pretty much the only drama for now that I go out of my way to watch as soon as possible. I am still surprised that Yoona has been able to pull this off so well - well enough that I really hope to see her a lot more in dramas. Pretty busy right now with some house rehab and fix-up projects that I want to get done before the summer heat comes back, so not watching as many dramas as I usually do. Do you think that the PM knows that his late wife died with her lover?
Did he keep it a secret from his Bro-in-law to preserve the memory and reputation of his wife? This is what I think, yes. Since he IS a particular, rather grumpy person who actually KNOWS that he is a particular, rather grumpy person - you take those feelings above and add it to his self-knowledge and then sprinkle it pretty heavily with a feeling of guilt toward his children and a desire to protect their mother's memory, let it simmer for 7 years, and you get a man who wants nothing to do with romantic relationships. It might be that he knows, but prefers that the kids don't find out about it.
But so far not enough real details have come out about the whole car crash thing or the possible other issues to really figure out what is going on. I am guessing, and it could be totally wrong, that In ho's brother was having an affair with Yul's wife or something like that. Maybe they were just friends but so far I see no other reason for In ho's behaviour. His brother was in a car accident that left him in vegetative state, Yul's wife was in a car accident that killed her. We saw the flashbacks and she is in the passanger's seat but so far it hasn't been shown WHO was driving her car.
I guess too Joon Ki has no idea what his sister was up to the they she died and Yul is keeping it a secret to spear him more pain. Da jung and Yul are great together. And I love this drama for always having a fun twist up its sleeve and not going the dramaland rule way. Our leads, in a contract marriage, conffesing their feelings NOT at the eleventh hour?? I fully support it. In the flashbacks, I think she also tried to get out of the moving car before it went off the cliff the door opened but then shut again.
So if she was the passenger, maybe she wasn't eloping with her lover, but was trying to go back to Yul? It could have been one of those murder-suicide things also, which is why she was trying to get out? Really cares for his noona Nam Da Jung! Park Hee Chul, Da Jung's former assistant, is the only one I trust to take care of his noona, always. I feel he is a great character in this drama to always look out for her and be totally loyal to Da Jung. I hope the writer gives him a larger role in later episodes; this version of Lee Min Ho is really handsome and tall, I like him a lot as an actor.
Isn't it ironic that the "scandal" near the end of episode 9 has all the serious reporters there, but not Scandal News? I hope Hee Chul will get to cover that for Scandal News. During the "exclusive interview" with the Prime Minister candidate, Park Hee Chul was just the recorder and Da Jung was the main interviewer. So Park is Da Jung's assistant.

- Prime Minister & I!
I love his innocence and his do-good attitude even though he is in a tough business of exposing scandals. Isn't Park Hee Chul the photographer in that interview? Although Nam Da Jung also took pictures early on in Episode 1. But I thought Da Jung's dream was to be a writer like Jane Austin and she was college educated in that area. Yes, Man Se was the reason Scandal News got the exclusive interview. I checked it on Wikipedia, it says: So I guess that is another way to look at it.
But Hee Chul sure has a lot of respect for his noona. Lee Min Ho is just perfect in this episode.. Will this be a turning point for his character?! I think he will be angry for quite a few more episodes.

He might become a "dark" character from now on. I think In-Ho was naive to think he could work on the same level with the veterans of the shady dealings. The people he messed with has a lot more power, influence and experience. Being the Prime Minister, he would be a stickler for rules such as wearing head gear for safety concerns but he did not. Because he was the only one who knew how to skate well.
Normally, I imagine even he would be asked to wear the gear, but given they wanted to visually emphasize his good skating skills, I understand it from a drama perspective. Plus, if he did not want to wear them, who would dare tell the country's Prime Minister to obey? But my sister was side-eyeing me because head gears supposedly come in different sizes. I really appreciate this drama cliff hangers. If they cut off the episode where In Ho and Da Jung got surrounded by reporter, it would have drive everyone nuts waiting to find out whats next in following week. Instead the ep ended on a softer, but more satisfying note.
Too kind for audiences like me, love it! This drama rarely ends in the conventional suspense omg-what-will-happen-next cut off but rather it usually ends on those meaningful, poignant Yul-Dajung scenes which leaves us wanting more rather than wondering what's next. I honestly wasn't sure if such ending was a good idea because it's not much of a cliffhanger, but I grow to love it. It makes each episodes really satisfying in itself, and makes the wait a lil bit more bearable I guess When the drama showed that scene whereby Da Jung's dad was actually playing alone, I can't help wondering whether it is hinting at the fact that his health is deteriorating?
If it is, that would be so heartbreaking for Da Jung! Additionally, is that another hint offered when by the drama when the dad mentioned his dream whereby something bad happened to her? Dad dreamed Nam Da Jung was wearing mourning clothes and that she was being chased by some creatures So, yes, the dream could be foreshadowing his death. The part about Nam Da Jung being in trouble could be the scene in the hotel room that happened later in the episode. But it could also be a bigger issue that could happen much later, as in other episodes. There's so much cuteness in this episode that I actually forgot the age gap between these two leads!
I am loving the chemistry and Yoona is playing her part well that she seems actually at par with the acting LBS is doing. I can't wait for the next episode! I am also very curious as to how she will win Woo-ri later because so far he's playing hard to get with his stepmom. I'm actually surprised that they didn't just make a joke out of the kiss from an earlier episode when Da-jung was trying to shush Yul though.
Only the two body guards saw that and the chubby one was totally into it. The next morning at the curb he reenacted the scene with his guy coworker for others to see. He went near a wall farther away, then he screamed, "prime minister, prime minister, It totally grossed out his coworker and Secretary Seo standing nearby. That was the first time Secretary Seo realized there are extra-curricula activities going on inside the mansion.
I have been waiting for the OST since last week. And I love how every episode the main couple is getting closer to each other even with lots of issues in their way. I love how quick they resolve it and results to our OTP understanding one another. I still can't grasp what is InHo's motive behind his actions, but I'll take it for now since we have little info about the past.
Also, JoonKi may just be misunderstanding the whole thing regarding his sister. If his sister was his reason why he's so broody with Yul, that's too much. I love this drama so much, especially the subtle war these two are at the center of. They have allies and enemies all around and then there is In-Ho who is in the complicated position of being both. As I watched him yesterday, I thought, "This is what Shark should've been like.
This is the self-doubting avenger I wanted. Glad the OTP is finally together but all that said, I am so hoping the drama doesn't make Madame Na into a laughing stock Thanks for the comment. I am now totally confused by the names of the Finance Minister's family.
I am confused why siblings would have different surnames. I have also written comments using Minister Na and Madame Na before, but the confrontation outside the golf course between the women all referred to the Finance Minister as Minister Park. Korean ladies do not change their names after marriage.
Thank you for your explanation. I guess I got confused by too many "Na' names for a while. And ever since the first episode, he showed enough nuances in his interactions with Nam Da Jung which made it very believable that he later fell in love with her. Or is it just me? Because most seemed surprised by this development.
I started watching this drama in the first place because of Yoon Shi-yoon - damn, that boy can act!
I'll talk about dramas if I want to
Doesn't hurt that he has good chemistry with YoonA, either. It never fails to amaze me how he's all kinds of goofy earnest puppy in real life, but can convincingly play such intense, brooding and adult roles. I never understood the love people have for Goong. I recently watched it, and maybe because I didn't watch it when it originally aired, but I felt it dragged on forever! Plus, the chemistry was cute but a bit off. I hated that she was suddenly pregnant at the end too! I didn't enjoy it as much as people adore that drama.
Hmm, I marathoned the Goong DVD with my mum and sister one or two years after it aired, and I still remember that I loved the first part where Chae-kyung was being all cute-bumbly-princess, but somewhere along the way probably at the point MBC extended it , it definitely started to drag. I especially hated that the extra episodes were filled by rehashing that whole plot point of her meeting Yul in discreet-but-not-really places and the scandals that resulted from those meetings.
From being a palace klutz with good intentions of trying to be the best princess she could be, she became this lifeless crybaby who kept having her strings pulled by others and still clandestinely went to meet Yul when they were just repeating conversations they'd had before and there were really no positive results from those meetings. For constantly dragging her out of the palace, Yul, too, became so easy to hate after being so easy to like in the earlier episodes. I was, I think, ambivalent on the chemistry since Joo Ji-hoon wasn't bringing anything much to his side of the table in most of it and the pregnancy.
Nothing much to say there. What's interesting is that I did rewatch the first half that I really liked later on, but I didn't finish it, which I usually do when I rewatch stuff. Hence the random scrolling through and commenting: Im in love with this drama too I wonder why Kwon Yul bought a hair chip for Da Jung. From the old pictures, his late wife Na Young has the same hair style as Da Jung now. Replaying the ramen scene and the ending scene while squealing. They do know how to end an episode and leaving the us wanting more. Seeing the preview for this ep, I was dead worried that the drama will turn darker but it's such a relief they managed to give it a lighter twist without making the problems meaningless.
As always, the problems resolved very quickly and brings the PM and Dajung even closer. I loooove how the OTP has their own bunch of resident shippers lol. Cute Manse was all, "My dad and ahjumma kissed! But keep it a secret while I tell everyone else!!! He gave her this nickname after the PM Banquet. DJ left her heels out in the patio while escaping from KY. KY saw and he picked them up and went in the house calling out to DJ.
He asked if she is missing anything and she gleefully said "no". That's when he took out her heels and she look at her feet and opps It's at this moment KY said darn And why not change her name to Nam Guk Jung Ms Worrisome as in she always make him worry about her So many funny and touching scenes in this episode. LMAO at the press conference where the slimy reporter got the runs! Love the sound effects. I loved him in Rooftop Prince. I hope he gets more screen time in this drama later. I'm going to be upset if it's a dream..
Everyone knows that they are crazy about each other except them. Da Jung realized it a little earlier and is always in the moment, but the Prime Minister hasn't admitted it to her yet because sometimes he thinks too hard about the past and should just follow his heart. Seems like forever until next week. I just love this drama and its cuteness. I havent seen such a feel good drama in so long! I wish it got more credit then its given.
I enjoyed this episode but the preview for next episode made my heart ache. It seems like Hye Joo is finally giving up on her crush. I've always wanted her to stop and just leave the PM alone coz she blew her chance many years ago but seeing her actually giving up somehow breaks my heart. And I don't mean that little peck in ep 2, but a full on romantic kiss.
Does the actor not do romantic scenes??? He kisses and well too. And in his movies, of course. You can see the 'Giant' one here. If we get something like this, I'll be more than pleased. Giant is on my que to watch, but I haven't seen it yet. Glad to see that he can give a good kiss, I was really surprised in HoS. I will wait until next epi then, let's hope it's a good one!!!!!
I think the couple in HotS was more of a comedy duo, so they probably thought going for kissing would require more romance and lovey-dovey time, but they did not want to focus there. The second couple functioned more as a regular kdrama couple than the leads. As for this one, Yoona seems fine with older co-stars, Lee definitely has no problem, so unless the creators mind, we'll get a normal one. I don't think the creators would mind, since they even made fun of the lip-smack type of kiss, so it would be silly to not give us a good one.
I highly recommend 'Giant'. The length of the drama initially scared me, and I usually don't watch episode dramas, but it was a quick watch. I think I spent less than a week finishing it 'cause it was just too good to stop. Especially after the scene where he declares that what she gave him was a lip-butt, not a kiss.
And that as a man who was married, he would know the difference. I hope he can show us he really does know the difference! If not, how disappointing! The only problem for me in this whole episode was that, like almost every other Korean drama, she did not return his hug but stood there like a block of wood.
He works hard for his career, and awaits his time to shine. During his university years, he and Yul were very good friends, but their friendship ended when he found out that his first love, Seo Hye-joo, was in love with Yul. He assumed that his sister Na-young's death was due to the weariness caused by her husband, and thus cannot forgive Yul. His only ambition is to win against Kwon Yul in every field. Kwon Woo-ri, 15 years old, is the eldest of Kwon Yul's children. Woo-ri is in his first year of high school. Kwon Na-ra, 12 years old, is the second child and only daughter of Kwon Yul.
Na-ra is a sixth grader in middle school. Kwon Man-se, 7 years old, is the youngest child and son of Kwon Yul. Man-se has just recently started primary school as a first grader. Noh Young-shim was the music director and theme music composer of the drama series. A representative from the drama's production company said that the song "complements the snow fall of winter" and is "set to make the drama warmer.
