What strikes me about NG isn't any of its big moments, but the general vibe - in a way, it's almost a mood piece. I feel drawn into its world with almost a dreamlike intensity.

What strikes me about this episode is (a) how nonexistent JH is for Maru - he doesn't even hate her any more, she is only relevant to him insofar she affects EG. What a change.

But above all these two scenes stand out for me - one happy and mundane, and one angsty and dramatic. And yet, throughout it all, you sense how much Maru/Eun Gi belong together, how happy they make each other despite the various swords of Damocles over them (not to mention how wonderful it is to see Maru love and care for someone who loves and cares back). That is why the final scene is such a punch in the gut. Please tell me her forgetting everything is temporary.

I think that much was clear already by episode 12, but there's a great deal of satisfaction watching him express what little opinion he has of JH. His deadly "get out" (and the words in Korean hold even more contempt than that expressed in the translation) was so much more effective than any screaming or shouting.

Please tell me her forgetting everything is temporary.

*sigh* That's actually not what's heartbreaking in episode 14. But I'll let you watch on your own.

He wanted to take her on another date. *sighsighsigh* Why are the mundane things, the things we take for granted so d@mn elusive for my lovely, lovely couple...

So true. It's better as "get lost," but even then, the Korean is much more forceful.

I really appreciate how Nice Guy doesn't take just one trope and beat it to death. Instead, it keeps taking us around new twists and turns, many unforeseen.

I just finished ep 14 and it's my favorite yet. So pitch-perfect.

i liked that Eun-ki seemed to be getting back to her old self a bit , and it NEEDS to happen - none of this noble 'push you away for your own good' business, which is far too scarringly reminiscent of the couple in my icon (only I don't think Eun-ki and Maru are the type to slug it out in a boxing ring). Also, I know she's been straightforward about her feelings to Maru once when she had all her faculties and got burned....but I need to see it happen again, and need him to believe it this time.

(and also, even more importantly, a proper love confession from him to her sometime SOON, tyvm)

I really like Jae-gil and Choco now that they don't feel like they're in their own sub-drama, that scene with Secretary Hyun going She-Hulk on them (+1000 points for Avengers reference, Choco!) was comedy gold. Poor woman needs a change from looking perpetually worried, lol

yeah, pretty much a Kara/Lee shipper for life here, it's my all-time fav show despite the 4th season being such a mess. And I didn't know you were a BSG fan too!

(also, gratuitously half-naked SJK in the shower! Unfortunately not half-naked around Eun-ki, though at this stage she'd probably get shy)

LOL, SJK doesn't do anything for me but I did think how happy his fangirls must be :P

He doesn't have the effect on me that Joo Ji Hoon and Lee Jun Ki do, but I think it's more his chemistry with Moon Chae Won that's doing it for me here.

Like, their being together just makes him 10xmore attractive to me when normally I'm pretty indifferent to him.
