It starts with the question Yoon Hee poses to her husband, “Who is #1 in your life, honey?” He never answers her; I don’t think he could, for he himself does not know. But as the story unfolds before us, is it possible that this mystery person in Dong Hoon’s life lives behind door number 1? Continue reading My Mister Locations: Ji An’s House, #1
Glass is hard yet transparent. It blocks entry, but at the same time allows us to peer into the space it shelters. Looking through a glass window or door, we see without touching. We are able to watch and scan every object, action and expression, but we should not be fooled for there is still an invisible barrier that shuts us out. And sometimes, if we look carefully, we see our own reflection. Continue reading Seeing Through a Glass, Darkly

…, make that self-realization, that he has fallen for her! A hilarious recap of the moments Dong Hoon is forced to deal with his emotions. This was written before episode 13 aired.

I’ve gone back through and decided to narrow it down to 5 moments (really you could say any time they shared air in episode 12, and that would be accurate) plus one that was completely unconsciously done before he started to grasp the situation he found himself in, and I’ll explain the rationale behind each. Continue reading Moments of Realization
I just finished Episode 4 and after sobbing and laughing then sobbing again…I realised this: Episode 1-2 were thrilling and exciting and made me think it was some kind of thriller/corporate mystery. But episode 4 was when the show sank its claws into me. And I didn’t even realise it then, because it was done so, so subtly through the use of wiretapping/flashbacks.
EPISODE 4 IS A STORY IN ITSELF: Sang Hoon’s Shame
I just want to deconstruct how the writer did it because she built up the tension and suspense so beautifully until that dramatic climax. Continue reading Episode 4 Deconstructed: Sang Hoon’s Shame
I think for many males, they think about physical attraction at first. According to many of the directors and other higher-up employees, Ji An is “not pretty.” Ji An’s personality comes into play as her co-workers find her rude and cold. Her education is mentioned. She didn’t finish school. So, what does Dong Hoon like about Ji An? Continue reading The Relationship from a Male’s Perspective

Our understanding is that, in general, the drama covers one year and four months, starting from January 2018 all the way to the first quarter of 2019. Continue reading My Ajusshi Timeline
The only way the writer can reveal Dong Hoon’s feelings for Ji An is through a third party. If he says it out loud, he loses his integrity, and everything goes downhill. He is a married man. Remember, everything he says is being recorded. For example, if Kwang Il had heard words of love between them, he would never have trusted Dong Hoon with those recordings, and Ji An would have gone to jail. ~by Fauna
