K-Drama Reaction: Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food | Episode 14

I always believed that silent moments with our loved ones are the best. Sometimes, when things get rough, all we need to pause for a while, breathe deeply, and hug the people we love. And that’s what Joon-hee (Jung Hae-in) demonstrated in this episode. That silent lap hug with Jin-a (Son Ye-jin) speaks a lot about his current feelings. The weight of the situation has finally taken its toll on him. He just sent his estranged father to the airport, talked to him for the first time in a long time, and hugged him hesitantly. It pains me to see Joon-hee exasperated after telling everyone that he is okay. And I’m thankful Jin-a stood by him, silently comforting him. I know the problems of Joon-hee are rooting from his relationship with Jin-a, but we all got to give it to these OTP for wading through the flood gates of hell.

#MeToo Advocacy

I knew PD Ahn Pan-seok will not disappoint us in pushing through with the realistic depiction of sexual harassment in the workplace. Some may be dismayed with the way things are going on right now at Coffee Bay, but this is what really happens when sexual predators prevail in the office. They will do everything to scare the victims away and prevent them from speaking up against them. Nobody wants to lose their precious jobs, so these kind of incidents really form a stigma among the female victims. I’m still hopeful that people like Jin-a and Vice President Jung Young-in (Seo Jung-yeon) exist in real life, so that victims would have the courage to step out of the shadow and punish the offenders.

Baby steps

I cried when Joon-hee’s dad was crying! It’s like he suddenly felt guilty of the years he lost with his children. Joon-hee and Kyung-sun (Jang So-yeon) grew up very well on their own, and I think it hurts him to hear other people insulting his children for not having parents.

Jin-a did a good job in convincing Joon-hee to loosen up to his dad. Even though Joon-hee was still cold to his father, his effort to even pick him up at the hotel and thank him before he leaves was a significant development already. Baby steps, Joon-hee…

GRUMPY ALLEY

I can’t really blame Kyung-sun for getting mad at Jin-a’s family after what happened. Jin-a’s mother was just too much; she was tactless and insensitive. She is so annoying she drives away the drama viewers. LOL

When Jin-a was out looking for her new apartment, I kept on thinking how much does it really cost to rent a house in Korea. I’ve watched countless dramas describing this high cost of living in the country, but for a character like Jin-a (who’s a supervisor/assistant manager in an established company), the apartments for her ocular were pretty extremes. Some were obviously expensive because of the good interior, while some were in worse living conditions. How much does she earn to be able to even consider living in filthy, shady neighborhoods?

I think one of the best things that happened to Jin-a when he started dating Joon-hee was gaining a friend in Geum Bo-ra (Joo Min-kyung) 😁

Omo… I’m totally going for this US trip!!! Time to convince Jin-a! 💯
