Now We Are Breaking Up Synopsis

“Now, We Are Breaking Up” deviates from the norm by discussing the breakup and going through the breakup process in reverse order, despite the fact that most dramas follow a similar path. As a result of this method, it appears to emphasize the happiness of loving moments even more, rather than just the end result.

A dream-like story of love and separation.

Ha Young-Eun (Song Hye-Kyo) is a design team leader for a fashion company. She is a cold-hearted realist and she prioritizes stability first. She is smart, beautiful, self-disciplined, and sensitive to trends.

Yoon Jae-Kook (Jang Ki-Yong) is a popular freelance fashion photographer. He has everything like intelligence, wealth, and good looks.

Now We Are Breaking Up Quotes

Quotes From Now We Are Breaking Up Episode 1

Every designer hopes…
that each piece they design would become a beloved classic,
but trends are always fleeting.

At the end of the day, there is only one thing that never changes.
The fact that nothing is forever.

Fashion comes and goes, but style lasts forever.

Anything that comes from Korea is popular now,
and fashion is no exception.

If a model’s personal photos…
circulate on social media due to girl problems,
the brand image will be ruined as well.

If this is the best you can do, I’d rather eat out.
Eat it while you can.
It could always be your last chance.

Quotes From Episode 2

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness…
simply didn’t know where to go shopping.
-Gertrude Stein-

We gave you that title so you’d work hard.
It wasn’t so you could do things however you wanted to.

You can’t tell just by meeting her once.
So try to make time to meet her again.

Isn’t it stressful to have your hard work go unnoticed?
People only praise designers with their own eponymous labels.

Men and love…
To me, it’s nothing more than my hormones tricking me.

Those who say that happiness can’t be bought with money…
are usually poor.

but truth loves to go naked.

the one responsible doesn’t always do the actual work.

The life I’m enjoying right now…
is the prize I got…
for giving up on men and working like a bee.

Everything I have…
and have achieved so far.
I’ve been through this one too many times to know better.
Experience does not make you courageous.
Rather, it makes you more fearful.

so don’t sweat it.
-Vivienne Westwood-

There’s nothing more foolish than dwelling on what’s already done.
Just shake it off and move on.

When people like you fall in love, they fall hard
But your feelings aren’t something you can control.

A company’s priority is always its sales.

If she loves you, she will stay.
If she doesn’t, she’ll leave.

Experience is the most rational advice.

I’m not going to let the past bother me.
What matters is the future.

Quotes From Episode 5

I don’t remember anything.
Starting from zero is my style.
-Karl Lagerfeld-

Things we didn’t know then,
but that we know now.

If you’re too nice, they take it for granted.

If you can’t, then you’re not looking properly.

People are the same.
It may seem like we brush past,
but to someone,
we leave something significant.

Don’t just design clothes. Design your mind too.
Greed, anxiety, alienation, betrayal.
Do you think you can make good, pretty clothes with that?
You make with what’s in your heart.

Misunderstandings can be explained,
but lack of skill can be an evaluation that sticks.

is so darn short.

Dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy today.
-Gabrielle Coco Chanel-

Marriage is a merger of two families.

You said instant foods are your enemy.
They’re also a miraculous cure for stress.

When you face accidents as you get on in life,
you get rid of things that mean nothing to you without regret.
And what you have left…
comes to mean even more to you.
You get to see that.
Isn’t that what life is?

If an employee asks me for a raise…
or to pay for their transportation expenses,
I give them that as long as it’s reasonable.
But those who secretly take money…
behind my back…
are never allowed back in my office again.
The money they steal may not be worth much,
but you can’t put a price…
on the fact that they deceived me.

Now We Are Breaking Up Episode 8 Quotes

I never really think about my age. I just wear what suits me…
in that moment.
-Loulou de la Falaise-

Play hard-to-get-to make them want you more.

Men and women.

If you want to throw your weight around,
do so with class, as a vice-president should.

Use that time to do the things that you never got to do.
Do what you can to live another day.

Koreans are so nosy…
when it comes to other people’s love lives.

You can’t just think about yourselves.
You don’t live in this world alone.

Let’s just keep doing what we’ve been doing.
Let’s just do what we can.

Approaches you disguised as a coincidence.
Maybe you were there for me…
At the end of the road…
Even when I wasn’t aware.
What do you think awaits us at the end of that road?
I will probably be there.
No matter where you go, I will always be… at the end of that road.
See? You never know what can happen in life.

Now We Are Breaking Up Episode 9 Quotes

It’s sad that we even have to talk about diversity and difference…
because it should be normal

And we can’t really control anything.

be in the moment and only think about today…
as we try to live and love to the fullest.

Just do your job!
Making clothes that satisfy our customers’ needs…
is part of my job.

I thought I loved you,
but I’ve now realized it wasn’t love.
I’m comfortable around you because I’ve known you for years.
We’re like friends, like siblings.

Life’s been so busy that I keep forgetting.

How deep is the relationship?
If you introduced him to us,
that means you’re considering marriage, doesn’t it?

No one decides…
who we can like and who we can’t.

The world is full of all kinds of people.
They all look different, think differently, live differently.

In order to say goodbye with no regrets,
I should live my life to the fullest.
I want to do everything I can…
so I can pat myself on the back and say I did my best,
instead of having any regrets.

Knowing how to say goodbye is another form of love.

Now We Are Breaking Up Episode 10 Quotes

Life is short, your heels shouldn’t be.
-Brian Atwood-

Do something that suits your level of expertise.
Don’t waste your talent by doing something you’re overqualified for.

Kissing is like swimming
Once you learn it, your body always remembers it.

If I made the first move and got rejected,
I’d have no regrets since I at least got a few dates out of it.
But if I get dumped by someone who likes me,
I will be really hurt.

What really hurts is not the broken love,
but the one you love turning their back on you.

Even though you can’t see them in photos,
you’re reminded of how the air felt, smelled, and how happy you were.
Photographs evoke your memories and emotions.

Everyone has their own problems and struggles.

You try to act all cool and nonchalant…
as if you don’t care what people think of you.
But the truth is, you’re lazy and all you do is list excuses.

People criticize me even when I do a good job.

Now We Are Breaking Up Episode 10 Dialogue

Those who are left behind have to live their lives…
based on their memories of those who are gone.

Learning to run a business is a good experience.
Do it for a while to learn how things work,
then rejoin the company.

If you go against your parents to do what you want,
even if it’s hard, you won’t be able to say.

Don’t do what you’ll regret.
It’ll be much harder later on to set things right.

Not caring how much the man you love has down-scaled,
and how small he has become.
You don’t mind that and just care about your happiness.
That’s not love.
It’s greed.

When it comes to having a crush on someone.
It makes you walk on ice, work too hard,
and you get excited only to get disappointed.

Forget platonic love.
If our hearts don’t beat, then we can’t call it love.

Life is short, so I won’t waste my time contemplating.

Quotes From Now, We’re Breaking Up Episode 11

Black is not one color. Countless colors coexist in it.
-Yves Saint Laurent-

If we only have good memories,
we can end things with no regrets.
Then shall we break up with smiles on our faces?

During our allotted lifespan,
we live, enjoy our prime, and die.
It’s a natural cycle of life.

When some time passes,
things could change.
So just until then,
can we be patient and wait?
When some time passes,
and if they see that we’re sure about this,
both of our mothers…
will come to understand us eventually.

Let’s break up.
Before we hurt each other more.
Before we fight…
and get tired of it.

Don’t fall for a married man.

Letting go is love too.
What’s more romantic than giving someone…
everything you can, then parting amicably?

While you have someone you love, express it freely and openly.

There are things you can’t see when you’re in that position.
That’s when you must heed the things…
the people around you say.

Marriage isn’t what completes love.
Exchanging wedding vows…
doesn’t guarantee that we will love each other forever.
If that happens, we can end it then.

Just because you love someone…
doesn’t mean you must hold onto them.
Knowing when to let go is also another form of love.

As a woman, it was humiliating and miserable…
to live with a husband who no longer loved me.

but they have to give their two cents on everything.
