@irilight I thought Your Neighbor's Wife was an ok drama, there's only one thing I didn't like in the end. It's more a comedy than a melodrama though, despite the subject matter. Haven't watched episode 10 yet, but I hear JE and SR haven't married yet? That worries me a bit because it could only mean HK will go back to him and they'll get together in the end, I guess it would be easier for the writers not to make him divorce twice.
Another drama that featured infidelity and toilets was Your Neighbor's Wife. I watched it recently since viki uploaded it with subs, the housewife character (Shin Eun Kyung) used her husband's toothbrush to clean the toilet... also spit on his food and I *think* she gave him water from the toilet once, I'm fuzzy on the details but I think he did notice his toothbrush was weird when he used it later and got diarrhea. Didn't think I'd get to see something similar in another drama so soon lol
I think this is the first time I'm posting in this thread *waves* Yes, especially to the bolded part. It comes across as if he always only loved the nice, kind Hae Kang he had in his head and as soon as she shows something different (the way she dealt with pain internalizing it) he can't handle it. Sure you're a good guy but you didn't have to deal with your dad's company for __ years to harden you and make you ruthless, you could just play around in your little lab to your heart's content. And I believe it will be the same with Seol Ri. He just wants an "easy" love it seems, so Seol Ri better not lose her shine and remain peppy, cutesy and cheerful even when she's thrown all the pressure that comes with marrying into his family, or else she'll be thrown to the curb as soon as another youthful, optimistic woman shows up. One thing I like about the show is that they didn't make Hae Kang into a saint just to turn her into the perfect flawless victim for the viewer to pity, so although I side with her in the whole cheating business I also like that there's room for character growth. I feel Hae Kang's pain deeply but frankly the sooner she's out of that house the better, Jin Eon and Seol Ri can have each other for all I care. It's not like their path will be roses and sunshine from now on anyway.
Hopefully this means JTBC won't cut it even if the ratings are low. SM C&C also produced Miss Korea which I loved, so I'm hopeful for this. I noticed the article didn't mention Ha Suk Jin though, is he confirmed? (I really hope he is) Mydramalist lists 장용우 as director (Heartless City, If Tomorrow Comes, Hotelier) and 황은경 as screenwriter (Heundae Lovers, City Hunter, Daemul, New Heart), don't know how accurate that is.
I liked the first episode a lot. There are so many people! I liked the ambitious older sister, and I feel sad for the mom/stepmom but at the same time she's frustrating. Is it for sure that LSW's character will die? I know his role is just a cameo, but did they say anything about how he'll go away that I missed? Love the friendship between Yoon Joo and Ji Yi, and finally Sung Joon gets an interesting role again. I'm looking forward to tonight's episode, viki subbers were pretty fast with this one. edit: forgot to say, the only thing that bothered me was the music, it was too loud and obvious sometimes although I did like some of the choices.
Finally watched the first two episodes. They were a pleasant watch but I'm here for the 30s story hahah The only part I found overkill was the sister being in love with a cancer patient, I mean I'm curious about what the PD said, about the next ep being a completely different drama. Hopefully ratings will pick up too... Funny that Baek Sung Hyun and Yoon So Hee become Joo Jin Mo and Kim Sa Rang, but Jang Ki Yong (I think?) and Kim Yoon Seo stay the same haha!
