Be Strong Geum-Soon / Aja Gum Soon! (MBC, 2005)

Post by busyizzy » Oct 24th, '05, 21:10

Anyone seeing this? I think the actual name is "Good Sae O Ra Gum Soon A" or something like that .... but me and my mom always just call it "Gum Soon" and the file name is always "Aja Gum Soon."

So anyone else watching this? It's more of a sitcom, that plays in the morning, I hear, 5 times a week. It's over recently, but I have yet to see the last ... 10 episodes? I have them all downloaded though.

I think it's really sweet. I'm kindof disappointed that it has absolutely no exposure while other dramas which are definately not as good have so much more of a following on the boards.

Anyway. Here's to hoping. xD

Also, anyone know where I can find the soundtrack? I looked on Yesasia cuz I wanted to buy it, but I couldn't find it.

i tot this series was funny in the beginning.. comical indeed.. but it drags twds the middle and gets really irritating towards the end.. i can go on and on talking about scenes that bothered me (which means almost every single scene hehehe)..

i got worked up everynight watching this series hehehe.. too annoying.. but wat else can i do but continue watching it till the end cos i watched most of it aldy.. (sigh)..

it definitely enlightens me on the strong confucian culture in korea.. and how they look at widows, divorcees and single moms..

and i love the way the doctor smiles.. really smiles.. such open smiles.. like he really means it.. like Bi in Full House..

compared to most other daily dramas, this was one of the very few that I personally felt, DID NOT DRAG. The drama itself was very past-faced. And I'm so in love w/ this drama, watched every single epi =)

Anyone watching or have seen this show? If you can read Chinese there are c-subbed rmbv files at this clubbox:

This show is all about story-telling and acting. It can be really heartwarming at times and sad at other times. I'm at ep 24. :wub:

I'm up to ep 95 of this show. It's just one of those shows that I'm probably going to miss when it ends. I wasn't a fan of Han Hye Jin before but I like her a lot now. :P

Does anyone know where I can dl ep 130? That guys' box doesn't have it and at this stage I'd hate to miss any episodes. :cry:
163!!!
Yeah, that comes out to 80 hours or something? :P But Geum Soon is a terrific drama. The story, characters, and acting, have been solid. On top of that, it's sometimes extremely funny but most of all you really get to know the characters and their personalities and start caring about everything that goes on. The series has a lot of life and wisdom in it too, and it actually isn't very romanitic but when that ever develops the experience is pretty strong.

If you can read Chinese or speak Korean definitely watch this show. :cheers:

I really loved this drama. I don't normally watch such long dramas, but this one got me hooked!! It was a little draggy at parts
(especially the storyline with the aunt and cousin who liked Gum Soon's brother-in-law),
but thats understandable since it was a daily drama.

I wish the docter guy was in more dramas. Does anyone know if he is in anything else???

i wonder if jem still records S'pore aired dramas? besides that, i don't know where else you can find Singapore-subbed korean dramas online..it's a pity though, because most dramas brought into SG are given nice english subs :unsure:

There are two reasons why I stop watching this series is because of the acting of two of the cast. The youngest brother-in-law of Geum Soon and the young doctor who is inlove with him ans finally got married with her.
About the youngest brother in law, I have unfortunately happen to see him in several dramas and 1 movie, yet his acting is really pathetic. Never once did it improve.
On the case of the doctor, I thought he was quite good in that very first drama I seen him opposite Han Chae Young(hope I got her name right). But When I saw him in Hong Gil Dong, he suck, reaalllly sucks. His acting is not much different in Geum Soon. He looks and acts like a robot in front of the camera. Is he suffering from constant stiff neck?
