Monthly Magazine House -- Episodes 5 & 6: The Positivity of a Compliment

I felt like episode 5'ss title describes this drama and the characters perfectly. I had genuinely hoped Ja Sung would take the opportunity of his award ceremony to acknowledge how hard his team works.

Be that as it may, it would've been nice if he had done it to squash the competition even if he didn't believe in it. The Monthly Magazine team locked in a fight with the competitive team was the highlight of the episode. I laughed so hard, and to top it off, the team run into Ja Sung at the restaurant after turning him down and badmouth him, only for him to hear it all was just insane. But the craziest was their reaction to his reaction, the second-best moment. Still, I guess to him, they are only doing what they paid to do, and the only natural that they should give it their all and not expected to be a compliment for it. That said, though, I'm glad Ja Sung overheard his employees; he needed to know how they feel about what he shows of himself. Maybe this will help him not to try so hard to be something he isn't.


Come to think of it, this week's episodes had many fun moments beginning with the Lee Jung Eun cameo; I loved the electrifying fun she added in the short time she came on. It almost felt like I was watching a different drama from last week. Getting to see Chief Editor Choi Go's wife in action definitely puts a different perspective on why he behaves the way he does not that it excuses it, though. The only plotline that does work for me is the continued push for a love triangle that I feel is quickly coming to a head. Other than that, I truly enjoy the comedic moments but more so for using comedy so effectively to get to the crux of the matter; one must experience a person to know them; likewise, one must live in their home to know its worth. It's like they say you can never judge a book by its cover. Ja Sung sure got some moves on him -- who is calling whom simple-minded, just one compliment, and he was practically swooning. Too good to pass this drama.


Sometimes just a little compliment can make someone's entire day or week in this case. But that was all it took for Ja Sung to do a 180 with Young Won was fun. I loved seeing him swoon for her, but I also knew it was a matter of time before he started getting jealous of her complimenting the others around them. I didn't expect Ja Sung to have Young Won stay at his place while hers was under repair. For a man who values his boundaries and space, he sure does appear to have fallen for Young Won. Another brilliantly funny and fun-filled episode. I laughed the entire time. Editor Nam is quickly becoming my favorite; what a seriously talented actor Ahn Chang Hwan is; I loved him this episode. Am I the only one secretly shipping him with Editor Eui Joo; the actress is so beautiful. I am genuinely enjoying this one a lot more than I thought I would. Watch Episodes 5 & 6 here.

Having your own apartment is really a big concern. However there are lot of people who stay on rent. there are people who have lots of property and rent out and there are people who strive hard for a small apartment. I have had both the option..had my own apartment and also have stayed on rent. Both have their pros and cons. But when you are single, i prefer staying on rent as it gave me the same amount of security visa vi my…

Hi Seni

Though a bit silly at times i enjoy this drama. It makes a lot of sense at times. I wait only for this drama for its comic sense and timing. for other dramas i wait till there are 7-8 episodes so that i can watch it alll at once rather than wait for it.

I was also watching A Rational Life Chinese drama on Netflix. It is about a woman who is in her thirties and what she faces. It is nice. No hanky panky.


Been a busy week. Also the weather here is not that great. Been feeling a it down healthwise.


How are things at your end?

Hey dear... been wondering where you've been. I hope everything is okay health-wise. Take care of yourself and don't overwork. Yes, I didn't think I would keep at it with this drama episode 4 was the turning point for me as I really didn't like how episode 3 went, but glad I stayed because it's been hilarious since that damned episode. I'm not crazy about a love triangle here, but it's the avenue the writer decided to take. Still, other than that, I think all the characters bring something interesting to the table with very differing views on what home means to them. I am hoping they help each other realize what it truly means before the end. Until then,…
