A scene ensues.
  7. I doubt that what happens in Korea or Great Britain differs much from what happens in the United States. If one is experiencing a crisis, the first thing that's necessary is to reduce or eliminate anxiety so one can formulate a path forward. I suspect that in each of these countries the socially constructed expectations of how men and women will react are the same: Men in the UK, Korea and US are more likely to head for the "pub" or bar and women in the same countries are more likely to find solace in a cup of tea. On the other hand, no one much cares if a man finds solace in tea in any of these countries but a woman who goes on a .bender is more likely to catch some grief. Alcohol is probably as much a part of American as Korean life, maybe more. Probably kamikaze drinking is more prevalent among the young in both countries. My guess is that among older adults, getting really blitzed on occasion may be more tolerated in Korea than the US, while drinking on a daily basis may be more tolerated in the US than Korea.
  8. That news hit the audience hard as well. Up until then, it seemed that they had a totally bloodless, cold and coerced marriage. No one would have blamed him if he had stowed away to China or wherever. The news of his wife's pregnancy changed the whole equation. A clever piece of writing in a series which otherwise seemed to be written with a sledgehammer.
  9. I have to reiterate my respect for Park Ha Na (Rich Brat) as an actress. She was absolutely chilling in the early episodes as a sociopathic high school student. Now that her character is mostly mischievous (even comical at times) and abashed ("Regrets, she has a few . . .") she is still equally convincing. I find the lighter touch of the more recent episodes, in which Eun Soo is on a more equal (if not superior) footing with Rich Brat, to be more pleasant and sustainable for the remaining 40 episodes or more. In contrast to The Unusual Family, in which all but the last three episodes or so featured a beat-down of the heroine..
  10. I think a lot of his apparent cluelessness is passive aggression (passive revenge) for the fact that Rich Brat coerced him into marriage with Granny's investment in Yoonga Foods. No question that in a non-coerced marriage he would owe his wife more consideration and attention.
  11. Standing up the Former Department Store Supervisor would have been cruel. I'm glad that Eun Soo's mother found a way to see both men.

Will Halmoni launch another tweet storm, or do we have Mutually Assured Deterrence? Halmoni asks Rich Brat whether she has spoken with her father lately.

Eun Soo's mother mopes in her shop and remembers her conversation with Rich Brat's father. Eun Soo calls to check on her health.

The Upstairs Tenant tells him that at dinner the night before, she gave him all of her chicken breast. The assistant says that is weird since she really likes chicken breast.
