A Gentleman’s Dignity ft. Big Baby Driver

I’ve just finished a Korean romantic comedy drama after hibernated from watch any drama for months. And believe me, this drama is great, heart-warming, has something to tell behind its very light story line, just really fine source of entertainment.
The title is A Gentleman’s Dignity. It’s a story about 4 men in their early 40’s. At a first glance it will seems like F4 in middle aged. Haha. 2 of them are architects, with their own bureau, that’s actually the best appealing side from this movie for me. 😀 The smartest among them is an attorney. And the last one is married to a wealthy woman and has his own cafe.
Can you guess who are the architects? 😀
What’s nice about this movie is the story line is not only cycled on 2 main characters. That usually happen in many Korean dramas, when the protagonist’s friend seems like have no life and just appears when the heroine needs help or needs to be listened to. That’s actually seems pitiful, since there’s nothing like that at all in real life. Everyone’s absolutely has their own life. So that, every persons that considered as main role here has their own story line, and I think that the time for airing is quite equal for every characters.
(It will be a spoiler) And what’s great is AGD has a perfect slow motion ending. Usually, Korean dramas have a very critical climax from 2-3 episodes before the final, and just suddenly end whether happily or tragically at half end the final episode. I personally cannot find those kind of dramas is great because it will still left a big question of why, even after the drama’s end. I hate that kind of ending for a drama. And this one is absolutely has a nice way to come to an end.

I will just ignore all the mishearing, overhearing, unintended meeting in some random places, and everything like that, since it does happen in almost Korean movie, but still what’s happen here still tolerable. And I will just ignore how everyone have a very great happy ending, because it’s movie after all. We need a positive motivation from everything that we’re consumed, aren’t we?
Additional, the background soundtracks are lovely. Now I’m falling in love with one of the singer named Big Baby Driver. She’s Korean indie singer who’s usually do original soundtrack for dramas. She’s done for Dating Agency Cyrano and King of Dramas as well. Below is my favorite’s from AGD.
Spring I Love You Best
I wish I had someone who suddenly arrived
And show me how the flowers grow and come out in winter field
I wish I had someone new tender to my heart
Someone who will share me precious time
Someday you’ll find me in the hands of the wind 
Somehow you’ll lead me to the warmer nights
Someday you’ll find me in the hands of the wind 
Somehow you’ll lead me to the warmer nights
If I had pretty spring at the corner of my heart
I’ll say goodbye to winter land, you’re so cruel the winter wind
Check the weather through the phone, the number is 131
Don’t you know the truth is in fine weather
(I love you best)
(I love you best)
Someday you’ll (I love you best) find me in the hands of the wind 
Somehow you’ll (I love you best) lead me to the warmer nights
Someday you’ll (I love you best) find me in the hands of the wind 
Somehow you’ll (I love you best) lead me to the warmer nights

Kindly check her light floating voice here and her personal tumblr here. I believe that she should has more listener to her beautiful voice, because it just magically gives you both blue yet warm feeling at a time, it can’t easily describe actually. And she’s doing it perfectly with acoustic guitar.. ^^
The movie and the singer need more audiences, so just watch and listen to it soon.. 🙂 Goodbam, then..
