I have just finished the very last minute of A Gentleman's Dignity - I am grinning, warm and giddy, my happiness undercut only by the knowledge we won't see the gang again. I could happily watch them paint walls or talk over soju for 90 episodes more.

I don't know if it was a perfect drama, but it was my perfect drama. It was funny, moving, sharply drawn, with great dialogues, characters, acting, romances, friendships and oddly real.

Oh, the friendships! Between the men and the ladies and the mix and everything.

It also gave me a perfect main couple, who were both quirky and flawed, yet wonderful. They made me want to know them. And the chemistry! They were pitch-perfect from the beginning to end. That last scene with them talking in bed - oooof, straight in the heart, with its quiet perfect understanding and wonderment and joy.

It also gave me one of my all-time favorite secondary OTPs in Yoon/Maeri, who just made so much sense together despite the age difference and his past grief and her impulsiveness and just - I want a whole drama about them. I rewatched their scenes too much to count. I loved them almost more than the main couple. I am so happy they got their hard-earned happiness. I need them to make lawyer bag-making babies...

I am going to try to do a more coherent post (I have over a 1000 caps to sort through, if nothing else), but for now I am too happy and emo and overwhelmed...So for now, I just leave you with this:

(Yes, I love Tae San/Sera too, but I don't have good caps for them).

I wouldn't say this drama was THAT good. I think all this waiting made us forget the many frustrating scenes we had to go through (or is it just me?).

But Yoon/Maeri was wonderful!

I loved the dinner scene, after they came back from their honeymoon, when everyone is looking awkwardly at all that "male performance enhancement" food and then Tae San only lets Yoon eat. SO FUNNY! And Maeri says they barely left the hotel... while Yoon stutters that it was because of the RAIN! xDDD

That video I linked before was this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8i2Bdt4vntc

This one is also nice, though I'm not too fond of the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HzXetHDbvE

Thank you!

Nah, it's not the time erasing imperfections - I was one of the people who adored it uncritically throughout.

A much needed break from setting up my classroom...

A Gentleman's Dignity is PERFECT in my eyes as well! It makes me happy and that's exactly what the finale did. The drama proves that you don't need some "idol" pop star to headline to garner attention. With the exception of Yoon Jin Yi(who was amazing in her debut), veteran actors carried the show and left Korea wanting these "ajusshis" for themselves.

The flashmob proposal was so awesome! There's no words to describe how much it made me smile and giddy.

Oh Yoon and Me Ahri....what can I say about this coupling? P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N

Everything about this drama was so perfect. I will rewatch it whenever I am down...
