    It took me twice as long today...there are too many good scenes.
    I guess it's a good indicator that today's episode is really exciting...hehe...
    This drama is full of great actors...together...they made this drama so powerful & exciting.

    It's too bad that the ratings are getting lower and lower.
    Episode 9 went down to 6.9%. Unbelievable.
    This article gives us some insights & reasons for the bad rating.

    Can anyone translate that article?

    The ratings are so disappointing. image This drama is obviously the best one airing currently, and it'll probably be the best drama of the year.

    Yeah, the music creates a perfect mood. I loved how they played carmen in that scene. I also loved it when Mendelssohn played in the background while K ambushed Do Man. I never knew that the piece could give me such a thrill. I replayed that scene so many times.

    It's crazy how such good shows like this get low ratings. Why is it like this?! People really don't know how to recognize a good show when they see one. But I dunno, maybe it's just too American? Like, honestly, this production could really be easily adopted over to America. Uggh people and their poor choices, oh well, low ratings seem to help the show go smoother and with no unneeded extensions image

    rui-is-assez-hot, I hated that scene! K is just so evil, but I was kinda unimpressed with how he jumped out just perfectly and saved himself from being burnt dead. That scene was really really overthought, in my honest opinion. When Kyung-tae was on the phone hearing the sounds from the car, I loved how the audience couldn't hear anything - I was really expecting to hear screaming when Kyung-tae was on screen, but without it made that scene even more haunting. Like you could imagine Kyung-tae just utterly shocked, and as the audience all you can do is watch. Amazing stuff, the producers are really challenging my conventional thoughts in watching stuff...

    Yea I really don't like Shin's new hair cut lol, it looks like a Shinee rice-bowl cut... I liked his hair when it was shaggy and out. Much like how I liked that one gangster guy who got out of prison.. his hair in the beginning was <3 heh. I really like guys with curly hair like that image

    it's gonna probably take Javabeans even more time to summarize this episode lol, I absolutely loved her fangirl squeal when capping ep. 8 XD

    I don't know if I like the idea of Eun-soo going back to Do-woo, because she betrayed him just like that. She did suspect here and there, but I guess I overestimated the depth of their sibling love - thought it meant just as much to her as it did Do-woo, but I guess she couldn't take what happened with their father and all.

    QUOTE (happilyinsane13 @ May 5 2009, 06:03 AM) »
    I don't really think what Eun-soo did was a betrayal. I love Do-woo, but from Eun-soo's point of view, the brother she loves basically left their father on the floor to die. She heard everything, and her fears were confirmed. For me, I would think she'd want to push her brother away, not to go against him but so her innocent, sisterly love and image for him isn't tarnished more then it's been. And she was truly never 'on his side' in the first place.

    I agree. I don't see it as a betrayal either, but more of a spurred reaction. Leaving their own father to die was probably something that Eun Soo couldn't overlook even if she wanted to. The rest she could atone, but what if anything were to happen to their father? Instead of being aghast at him, she who would never approve of what Do Woo did still loved him as a sister.

    I am just copying what I said at javabeans in relation to ES's so called betrayal, as to me its really ES actually taking a public stand with the whole situation that's occurred.

    "I have yet to watch episode 8, don’t have subs but I am enjoying your recaps javabeans. To those who are somewhat are upset with ES’s so called betrayal. I would not necessarily call it that . Why because I think when ES realised that it was her brother who had Do-Jaymung’s father killed and his reaction to it all she decided not to take a somewhat inactive role anymore in the whole scheme of things. She has always been the somewhat Chae Dong’s construction buffer, taking responsibility for the evil actions that the company has taken, she has been privy to all this information and more (though it was done secretly and due to her promise to her mom), she has tried to make things better by apologizing and taking the brunt of the anger from the victims. Her decision was made once she saw what was happening, in a way “She does not want anymore deaths caused by Chae Dong Construction or her brother”, plus she was suffering as well, being used a pawn between father and its possible her brother for Chae Dong. They do not really care about her emotions, she is just a doll to be manipulated at will. DW wants ES to be on his side against his father. You also have to look at the last confrontation between father and son and his reaction to when his father was in pain, then pretending to care once he saw her come down to help her father. She saw and heard the whole thing, how can that be betrayal?? To me it was her coming out in public and finally taking a stand, in the earlier stages it was hidden, but after being a witness of such actions, she had to do it. I say kudos to ES, it was time."

      "돈 몇푼에 무릎 꿇러 지 발로 찾아와? 혹시 자존심이란 거.. 없어요?"

      
    도우(김강우 분)의 작전으로 휴지조각이 되어버린 채동의 주식.

      경영권 확보를 위해 주식담보대출까지 받은 김신(박용하 분)은 결국 도우를 찾아가 채동의 주식을 사달라며 무릎을 꿇는다.

      
    "나라에서 나가라. 이렇게 명령하는 겁니다. 아셨죠?"

      
    모든 것을 잃고 형수를 찾은 김신은 형수가 살고 있는 곳이 철거지역으로 지정된 것을 알게 된다.

      법의 테두리 밖에서 약자에 대한 폭력이 묵인되는 세상. 그 곳에서 신은 새로운 싸움을 시작한다..

      
    "착해서 약한 게 아니에요. 혼자라서 약한 거에요.

      이들이 다시 운명처럼 철거촌에서 만난다.

      신과 도우의 두 번째 라운드.

      바야흐로 다시 한 번 두 남자의 대결이 시작되려 한다.

    Mmmm I think not so much the complication (is it complicated? I think not), but more of the plot in general. After a long day, people are still more for the easy-watching dramas that don't need too much to digest...

    ...it's their loss anyway; it's saddening for the cast but at least the little who watch it rave about it.

    Wow this drama has so much depth to it. Never have understood the rating system, because it seems so many great dramas have the lowest ratings out there. Then others, are high from the very first episode and have very little depth to the story line.

    This week's episodes have been entrancing. You feel like you are being pulled in each direction and for each character. Right now I am not sure who I pity more? All of them are fighting for what they believe in, whether it is twisted or not.

    I am disappointed in KA. I thought she felt some loyalty to Shin's family, since she knew what caused Shin's brother to kill himself. She is knowingly and openly helping the enemy Do Woo. Of course, I still don't know the dialogue between Shin and her at the meeting, other than she took Do Woo's side.

    Can anyone tell me why Shin kneeled/bowed down to Do Woo today? Was he begging for something in particular? I know he told him he was sorry and it was his mistake. Perhaps in thinking he could defeat Do Woo?

    Can't wait for next week's episodes.

    i cant be really sure but when do woo went to the cafe , i think he asked Shin if he had used up all the money that his father gave him to battle against his own son ..

    i think Shin had used up all the money to buy the shares but there seem to be loans or wahatever he had taken or maybe his army of ants had taken up .to acquire those shares .

    the prices of the shares had been force to low value ..so he is asking Do woo to buy all his shares .so he can save the innocent people or something like that ? ..Do woo asked does he has no pride .but i think shin say pride now is nothing ..or something like that and he kneel Shin now realise who is the enemy he is dealing with .aka how powerful he is so ...i think he sort of admit that he had overestimated himself maybe .


    .er i think before that ..do woo say he will like to see one day that shin kneel before him


    lol i might be completely wrong also ~

    btw is that old man the mayor ? . ..he really doesnt look like one ~ ke

    I don’t get it. Why should Kyong Ah be loyal to Shin? They are not together anymore. They are both free to date other people. If she likes Do Woo, then she should be with Do Woo. He is not her enemy, he is Shin’s enemy. Of course, Shin could still be in love with Kyong Ah but that doesn’t mean she is obligated to reciprocate.

    Oh I don't mind at all, you giving your opinion by not agreeing with what I said. I like discussions on this forum. I've learned a lot from that.

    I don't think I meant her loyalty to Shin as far as being in love with him. If she wants to fall in love with DoWoo or whoever, she is totally correct in doing so. Shin and her had broken up and their relationship at the beginning of the drama didn't seem like it was going any place to me. Seemed he might of taken her for granted, not sure as it had so many flashbacks.

    I just thought that since she knew that Do Woo had made Shin's family business go under and knew he was evil in his dealings that her taking his side was a betrayal to the family. She had taken a loan out to help Shin's sister in law, so I thought she felt love for that family. I hope I am making more sense now. image
