    @ggry  thank you for recaps.
    I agree with you about HGC-Hercules.
    Frankly we often see rich men's wives taking so much time to keep themselves beautiful -  beauty saloons, spas, manicure-pedicure- shopping.
    They don't work outside their home, and their job it to keep themselves beautiful and presentable, and good hostess for husband's colleagues, etc. And yes - also keep themselves informed so that they can carry a decent conversation.
    Hercules, bless her heart - is a wonderful soul, but she did non of it.  With all of HGC's affairs that should have propelled her to take action in that direction, but she did not - as if she had already given up on herself.
    Maybe, as you said - because of high school she has low self esteem and already saw herself as a failure.
    She also inadvertently by doing or not doing all of these - "telling" HGC that she is not good enough and deserving of all of these; No wonder he thinks she only good enough to buy her some cheap CZ necklace.
    I am glad she is on the right track now, as far as how to treat him. I also want to see her taking interest in herself.
    BTW - I have seen this actress in a similar role several years ago; It was one of my first Kdrama, with Go Doo-Shim as her MIL. Similar story - she allowed herself to become a door-mat during the marriage - with a prof. husband who took on a young lover.  After the divorce, she started taking care of herself, and the way she looked, and became a popular singer.

    Where is all of this hate coming from? I know many of us our frustrated with the series thus far but honestly I don't really see anything wrong with Soo Ja wanting a better life for Woo Jin. She's sacrificing her pride, no her sanity to see that her children have a better life than she did or was able to provide them. I feel that if the show took on a more realistic tone Soo Ja would have come round by now at least in thinking that while Woo Jin might be better off financially speaking he would be miserable as a "kept man". Knowing this she'd drop the notion of trying to marry him off to someone he has no feelings for. I will say that her feelings towards Hae Soo seem misguided. I want to say it relates to the first part of my rant but there should be something more to her turn than simply providing Woo Jin a more stable life. At some point in time Soo Ja should trust that she raised a good son who can make a decision such as who he likes, loves, wants to be with on his own without the meddling of a mother, a sister and a deranged ex-girlfriend to stir the pot of discontent. 
    Now for the term "gold digger" I can't say this term is applicable for Soo Ja as I've already outlined my reasoning behind what she's trying to do. Hee Jin on the other hand I would agree that it suits her just fine. Her character in the beginning was head strong, determined and honestly self reliant. Now at episode 77 she's done a complete 180 and is nothing short of the typical "KDrama gold digger" she wants to be babied, she wants money and she doesn't want to be bothered with working for herself to obtain her own place in the world. I don't really mind her meddling from time-to-time like any sibling might do but her insistence to force or try to force Woo Jin & Ye Won together at times crosses that line. Now her willingness to help her mother I think is just her attempt to get back into her good graces considering all the crazy things she's been doing as of late. Admittedly I think she should have consulted Hae Soo before trying to set her up on a blind date this would have best for all parties as she would have been doing her mother's bidding but when Hae Soo declined the offer she would have be staying on Hae Soo's good side as well, not that Hae Soo seems hold onto grudges for very long (she's too busy trying to live to let them fester).
    Now for our resident screw up, Yoon Chan. It pains me to say it but did I detect the slightest bit of growth in his character? He was genuinely starting to get curious about Dong Baek. I foresee this being an issue in the coming episodes. I know some have already suggested a DNA test and/or someone trying to obscure a DNA test to disprove any claim that Dong Baek is his daughter. That makjang territory and while the story has taken on a bit of outlandish tones with Ye Won's obsession and her denial of the end of her relationship with Woo Jin I can't really see Yoon Chan or Yoon Jung going that far to disprove Mina's claim. Given how protective Tae Jin is of his sister, misguided or not at times, he'd simply rip a handful of hair out of Yoon Chan's head and personally deliver it to the DNA testing site. I'd add Jung Sook to this as well but she seems a tad flippant at times so I can't really read her well enough to say that she'd try something to protect him from the truth.

    Its just pretty much the same.. but i havent heard of a variety show which had a 40% ratings the highest rating for a variety show was like about 30+% (if im not mistake) for a variety show, 10% is already a decent rating.

    She is a lot more expressive in this show. She is able to emote purely with her eyes, because of the role.

    @hibiscus23 FIGHTING!!!  
    I have only watched SCE in Life is Beautiful with Lee Sang Woo and Lee Sang Yoon (and with a very respectable writer).  SCE and LSW did really well in LiB.  Admire their courage to take on the drama that drew a lot of (negative) attention. There were many challenges. For example, when they wanted to film their kissing scene ... at the last moment they had to change how the were to execute their kissing scene and had to change the venue at the last minute.  They came out well .. with their "hand kiss". Which gained popularity.
    If I remembered correctly Lee Sang Woo was in Japan sometime this year as part of promotion for LiB.. it was aired in Japan station this year.
    SCE is a very TALENTED and smart!  He is more known as a musical threater actor, right? 
    I found this on YT.. i thought is good people who are new to SCU.  It is old but gives a good background understanding of SCU.  Sorry if it has been posted before.

    In LiB, this is one of my favourite scenes.

    Like both of them here.  So playful and happy.  SCE sings very well.

    So this is it. Final shot for us. The pictures are amazing. If you look at all of them the feeling hidden behind is rather complex.  Thankfulness,  happiness, regret, worry, sadness. I think that their face at the verge of crying say it all. ..
    There's no much left to hope for tomorrow episode, just this: hoping it will be sweet, emotional without being dramatic. Hoping it will be a proper amount of time with no rush (i'm worried....too many things to show in 20 minutes). And a little hint to what's going to happen next (that's just for us brownie, we deserve that!).and starting next week...a new jy era begins!

    Yura looked fresh and pretty with her latest IG update. 
    Today is a Friday, today used to be our preview day. I can remember how excited we were speculating what's gonna be shown on WGM the following day. Google translating the preview was fun too, even if they don't make sense.hihi. But we have amazing translators here, ohhhhh the thrill of waiting for their translations. The constant refreshing of pages. Sigh. Good ole days.
    Wish to see or hear some JjongAh goodies soon.

    해피투게더3' 최다니엘, 신세경을 향한 깜짝 고백 "사실을 좋아했었다"

    해피투게더3 최다니엘 

    '해피투게더3' 최다니엘이 열정적인 키스 강의를 펼친 가운데, 과거 배우 신세경에 대한 마음을 고백해 눈길을 끈다. 

    최다니엘은 지난 2011년 MBC에브리원' 정보석의 청담동 새벽 한 시'에 출연해 신세경과의 삼각 관계설을 해명하는 시간을 가졌다. 

    해당 방송에서 정보석을 비롯한 패널들은 최다니엘의 속마음을 독촉했고, 이에 결국 최다니엘은 "사실은 좋아했었다"고 깜짝 고백해 모두를 놀라게 했다. 

    이를 접한 네티즌들은 "해피투게더3 최다니엘, 신세경 잘 어울려" "해피투게더3 최다니엘, 진짜 좋아했었구나" "해피투게더3 최다니엘, 지금은요?" "해피투게더3 최다니엘, 잘 됐으면 좋겠다" 등의 반응을 보였다.

    한편, 27일 KBS2 '해피투게더3'에 출연한 최다니엘은 "우연치 않게 내 키스 장면에서 시청률이 굉장히 많이 올랐더라. 하다 보니 비법 비슷한 게 생겼다"며 현장에서 직접 키스 이론을 선보여 웃음을 자아냈다.

  18. 40somethingahjumma added a post in a topic [Current Drama 2015] Yong-Pal 용팔이 | Wed-Thurs 10PM KST | EP 9 on Sept 2   

    Although I generally agree that there's no one-size-fits-all regime for falling in love in RL and in fiction, I also think it is the job of the writer (and the actors) to convince viewers that the OTP are in love through relevant dialogue or scenarios. While I believe that Yong Pal is a modern day fairy tale dressed up as a medical drama, there's still an expectation of a certain progression by audiences rightly or wrongly before certain things happen especially when the stakes are high and things look pretty bleak. I am, however, willing to accept that TH and YJ are attracted to each other because circumstances have thrown them together in such unusual fashion and they have a lot more in common than first meets the eye. I can't be sure if they're in love with each other for all the right reasons -- it could be pity, it could be gratitude, it could be TH's doctorly compassion, it could even be TH's messiah complex or just adrenalin -- time will certainly test the foundations of that bond. If the kiss is just about attraction then I'm okay with it. If the kiss suggests that they're somehow soulmates deeply in love, then I may have a bit more of a problem with it. However, that's something I've extrapolated from what I've seen, rather than what has been explicitly shown. The ambiguity and a lack of time given to the romance previously I think is what viewers are having trouble with.
    I enjoyed the last two episodes a lot but I can understand where some of the criticisms  are coming from although I don't necessarily share all of them. 
    But I emphatically disagree that the last two episodes have been slow. If anything it's been going a little too fast. @kdramaobession14 called it a hurricane which is just about right. People on the verge of death survived, someone's murdered, someone leaves to go overseas, someone escapes, the cops are doggedly sniffing around, enemies becoming strange bedfellows, nutjobs become nuttier and the OTP have become the OTP... sort of. Undoubtedly was definitely a lot of conversation... but necessary conversation about the past. There was definitely a jigsaw puzzle going on for TH and the audience trying to piece together what happened from titbits from CY and DJ.
    Phase 1, it seems to me was about breaking the spelling and getting Sleeping Beauty/Rupunzel out of the castle away from the wicked half-brother and his minions. Phase 2, I can only speculate, would be the princess' journey to regain her throne with the help of a most unlikely consort.
    What interests me about this fairy tale is that only person, in a real enough way, who could get the princess out was a rogue physician, someone who wasn't afraid to buck the system.

    Actually, I'm a lil confused or unclear on this part. The chart says grandma is, am wondering if the 'help' was before her death, as in flashbacks, or in the form of her 'spirits' helping HNR? No where did I read 'fantasy' in the genre, sooo curious to find out. Feeling the FUN & LIGHTNESS vibe....
