Before A Thousand Days' Promise started, I sort of assumed that it was about a loving couple and then a woman gets Altzheimer's. The couple is married, dating, whatever.

Not so fast! Apparently Su Ae is the 'other woman.' You see, Kim Rae Won may love her, but he's marrying the secondary girl.

WHAT?!

I am not even going to get into the fact that I'd like my heroine to have a bit more self-respect than to be the other woman. No, most of my ire is reserved for KRW! WTF, scumbag?! Either you love Su Ae, in which case you should grow some balls and marry her. It's not 1211 - you are not going to be disembowelled by your rich family. Or, you don't love her enough to not marry the arranged fiance - in which case you, sir, are a total scumbag to both women - you should let Su Ae go asap and make it work with your fiance.

Ugh.

How can I have that much rage and I haven't even watched this yet?

I love makjang. I love melodrama. I love conflicted characters. What I do not love is a drama trying to sell me that a scumbag and a weak woman are star-crossed lovers I should feel sorry for.

No.

I'll still check it out but...

AHAH! I see it sparked your interest! :P

Will you watch the first episode of "Me too, Flower!" and support the wonderful Lee Ji Ah? *__* pleeease?

I am disappointed in male lead switch - love KJW not so much YSY, but my Lee Ji Ah love will lead me to check it out.

Why must every k-drama be so complicated...

I wish this drama focused more on the love story and less on the class differences. The OTP will have enough on their plate dealing with the main female lead's Altzheimer's. I don't get why every single k-drama relationship must be tested by meddling parents and pushy secondary leads. While it can make some dramas interesting (i.e. The Princess' Man) I don't think it's a necessity for every k-drama out there...

If I am not mistaken, somewhere in the first episode, when KRW says that the families set a date and he fights with SA, then he said that he wanted to marry her (Su Ae) but she refused.
She answers back that he was pointing out all the obstacles they had (arranged marriages, and stuff) and he said that he still wanted to marry her anyway.
He says she refused, she says he didn't marry her, and that goes on...

The OTP annoy me to death in TDP. One ep and I'm out. I don't like either character, and it's not KRW that is a tool, she's not an angel either. He asked her to marry him, but she said no, because he kept harping on how hard it would be. And then they have the same arguments over and over again between making out. I kinda want to lose my memory and pretend I never watched this drama.

Adultery being sold as a good thing in a story tends to be a berserk button for me... So WTF???? HUH??? I know it's a makjang but still... It doesn't make any sense! How is that romantic?

I'm a lot less interested now than I was. I guess that's okay; I already have 2,394 dramas I'm trying to start watching.
