There weren’t a lot of people that watched tvN drama Awaken (Night and Day) but I was hella hooked thanks to the initially very intriguing sci-fi plus procedural mystery. Then it was the Namgoong Min and Lee Chung Ah show as the two riffed off one another and build this simmering incredible chemistry that works as police partners and as potential romantic interests. Then they turned out to be fraternal twins ahahaha in the big birth secret plot twist and admittedly was central and crucial to the story but it basically shivved everyone of us shipping them. Now she’s back onscreen in a true romantic plot with Namgoong Min in his currently airing hit drama One Dollar Lawyer, and this past weekend she appeared in flashbacks as a guest star to explain the titular lawyer’s reason for his eccentric ways. Fans LOVED IT as the two validated the reason why viewers ship them, still so much chemistry and cuteness nnnngggg. But since it’s a flashback and also she’s only a guest star one can figure out what happened to her character. Fans are crying foul and demand a THIRD reunion. Yup, don’t do the do-si-do dance K-drama land unless you deliver the goods in the end.

Awaken was really good. It’s one of my facourite NGM’s role. He was so charming in this role. I knew very fast she was his lost sister so I didn’t ship them.
But for this drama, the past story was way more interesting the present one. I really liked their scene under the rain.
Wasn’t in Awaken he was paired with Seolhyun? That’s why I dropped it (when his character got caught). I hated her character and cringiness. I couldn’t get past her crush on Namgoong Min and the possibility that Namgoong Min might like her back. If he was paired with Lee Chung-ah maybe I’d try again because the topic certainly interests me.
The drama has a solid script and brilliant acting from actors so this ain’t a surprise. Namgoong Minn ssi, you did it again.
He seems to have a lot of drama with ratings above 10%.
Is One dollar lawyer on any of the screeners? I am in the UK and would love to watch it.
In Asia it’s available on Disney+. Maybe in UK, too
thank you Kakak- will try Disney+
The flashback scenes were touching and successfully showed NG’s skillfull acting
