  1. Park Seo Joon is ambidextrous. In episodes 6 and 7 of "She was Pretty", Park Seo Joon was seen using his left hand to sketch, draw and eat. @stroppyse @xxPeepsxx @alleram95 @V Thank you so much for the translations. m(_ _)m I can't wait for the next episode! I think it will take our OTP another 2-3 episodes before we hear a confession.
  2. Like many posters here, I thought the ending was rather weak and disappointing. Our OTP should have been awarded more air time in the last episode of "Golden Pouch". We are only shown how they were reunited, with an image of Dr. Han being captured in SH's camera much like the first time they met in episode one when SH was also holding her camera. Credit: MBC The only redemption for me in the final episode was Madam Eun finally addresses Dr. Han as "Joon Sang" in the scene where Dr. Han chatted with Madam Eun in her room after NS's funeral. Poor JR. He has lost two wives who were BFF. SN is now the woman in the (Yoon's) household to take care of Madam Eun's well being (probably apart from the housekeeper). She is seriously dating Ji Sang and she visits Madam Eun often to talk with her and keep her company. Madam Eun seems to adore her and told her she watched TV and listened to music (songs) when SN asked her what she had been up to. JR thanked SN profusely for keeping his mom happy and said she would ask for her when she is not around. If I'm not wrong, SW seems to have ventured into food business, as in running his own restaurant. Thank you so much for the recaps @Ldy Gmerm. And @jayakris for providing us posters here with the translations. Both your efforts are very much appreciated. Thank You!! m(_ _)m And to all the posters who have contributed and made this forum and thread alive and engaging, and @0ly40 “감사합니다. [gam-sa-hap-ni-da]” !
  3. Trying hard to catch up on missed episodes... Wow. That scene of NS being hit with that rumored truck of doom was graphic and unforgettable although I was one of the many to have predicted how NS would be taken down as an atonement of her sins. It should have come with a warning like "Viewer discretion is advised". Have to agree with posters here about how cool and beautiful NS's gray heels were. NS is easily the best dressed in this drama. MH could have taken some useful tips from her former MIL when she could. MH needs to learn and understand "Less is more". But I guess MH wouldn't be too bothered with fashion for a long time as she goes on a trial after her interrogation and waits to get sentenced for her part in the insider trading of company shares. Two things I wished NS would have done before her accident. I wish she could have visited the late JJ at the temple behind the Yoon's to offer her apology. NS has a habit of talking to the late JJ in the trio's photograph but has never visited her BFF at the altar to come face-to-face with her misdeeds and admit her role and offer her apologies. I agree with posters here that NS was an opportunist who simply went with the flow when Madam Eun's misconception of the boy holding the incense pouch at the bench was her missing grandson whom she has never met. A small part of me had hoped to see a small hug between NS and the faker before she staggered off to be met with her fate. The faker has stood up for her and saw her as his mother figure despite all her nastiness and cold treatment of him. He has always called her his 'eomeoni'. It's true the faker has monopolized Madam Eun's love, care and attention. NS knew what the faker had done for her but she has never told him she appreciated his efforts to support her although he was wrong to take all the responsibilities and tried to make her an innocent victim in the whole ordeal of switching the two boys 30 years ago. Poor Dr. Han. It will be too traumatic for him to perform either surgeries. Be it the one to remove NS's heart or the operation to replace SH's heart. These are two women related and to have to witness the two women in the same OR and perform a life-saving procedure on SH or see how NS's chest is cut open to remove her heart is simply too cruel and unbearable. I hope the pool of doctors at the hospital are skillful and proficient enough to do a good job without the presence of Dr. Han. I agree that it would be better for Dr. Han to relieve himself from where he is right now and come back after a time jump. He will not be able to endure the emotions and complications surrounding all the sudden events that happened consecutively in such a short span of time. Sadly what Dr. Han told SH on that bench outside the hospital was true; that all the lies and deceits would not have been revealed had he chosen not to return to SK to locate his parents. In my opinion, SH is still torn by her feelings when it comes to NS. On one hand, she hates NS for abandoning her. She despises her for what she has done to Dr. Han. On the other hand, she also told Dr. Han she is sorry to feel sad and has tears in her eyes whenever she sees NS. Imagine how painful and difficult it would be for SH when she finds out later it is NS's heart that is keeping her alive... What a sad drama this is. @nrlfan4ever LOL. I too need to remind myself we are not watching a medical drama. SH's condition deteriorated rapidly due to a viral infection. Why isn't SH placed in an aseptic room? How come her visitors are allowed to interact and touch her freely without the need to sanitize themselves before entering her hospital room and are not required to at least wear a mask? Why is SH allowed to remove the magic IV drip and move around when her condition probably calls for compulsory bed rest and her heart beat and other vitals need to be monitored?
  4. It looks like NS from the clothes and the back of the 'victim' to me...
  5. Thank you so much for the schedule. m(_ _)m According the Korean Wikipedia, "Golden Pouch" will end on June 2, 2017.황금주머니 And the new daily drama to follow after "Golden Pouch" will start on June 5, 2017.별별_며느리 Let's keep our fingers crossed the writer will be able to wrap up the loose ends in this drama with the 2-episode extension and give the viewers a fairly satisfactory ending. On a different note, the title of episode 120 is "Get out of my life". Is that what SH will be telling NS after being told with a twist by MH what NS had unscrupulously done to successfully social climb, live in riches and experience the high life? Or could it be Ji Sang telling NS to get out of his life after the way she treated SH, Dr. Han and SW? I wish SH's critical condition can be treated with an emergency surgery without the need for a heart transplant. It is my earnest wish to see the three Wisteria sisters (NS, MH and Madam Sa) end up locked up and sharing a common jail cell. Those three harpies will have a lot to bicker and talk about during their hopefully very long stay in their cell. # Does Mr. Kim want to consider a career in dumpling making? He could be MK's assistant since DN will be on maternity leave after her baby is born.
  6. My sentiments's so sad and I am disappointed at the writer for putting in a last-minute twist to the story at almost the end of the drama. It could be the writer's intention and way to redeem SW's character but the viewers' memory is not short. We are reminded of the nasty things (even at the expense of his own father) he has done on his own will and at the prompting of MH, to try to stop Dr. Han from getting back with his real family. Due to the broadcast of an U20 soccer match between England and South Korea, there will be no episode today. The posters here are right to suggest that SW should take care of Madam Eun who seems to only remember him. If he still has that studio apartment of his, he should take her there to nurse her and make amends for the misdeeds and wrongdoings he has committed. It is almost unbearable to watch her adore and worry mostly only about him when the real YJS has returned. With her dementia worsening so rapidly, he would not be awarded the time and love KSW has stolen from him in the last 30 years. Very sad and depressing. I agree with @Ldy Gmerm, SW should have returned the incense pouch before he took his leave. It's not his and it belonged to JJ. What's he going to do with it? The rightful owner now is Dr. Han not him. SH rang Dr. Han and thanked him for not rejecting her call after she heard her doctor's prognosis of her heart condition. She was alone, very afraid and she needed reassurance and comfort and was at a loss after hearing the gloomy news of her heart problem by her doctor. She had hoped a prescription of a course of medication would alleviate her medical woes. SH has not been honest with her family (SN and DN) about the status of her health. It's very heart wrenching to see her struggle with it all on her own. She lied to SN it's her cold that won't go away when asked if she had visited the hospital and what her doctor's prognosis was. SN didn't buy what SH was selling though. Then she met DN in the Geum's front yard. SH was bidding her farewells to her siblings in case she has to 'leave'. Very emotional to see her want to tag along with DN on a trip to her OB/GYN because she wanted to see a sonogram of her 조카 (joh-kah). SH even offered to treat DN and her unborn nephew to an expensive meal because she is a 'rich' girl. It's probably from her savings for her wedding with Dr. Han that didn't happen. SH had offered CJ to pay for the clothes she had picked up during her shopping spree at a department store too when she found out CJ was going to return them. Mr. Kim will not be able to get away from Dr. Han. He was caught by him and subsequently put behind bars for his part in acting according to Madam Sa's order to falsely accuse the Geum's of using contaminated ingredients in their dumplings in order to put them out of business. On a lighter note, I am not a fan of MK's new hairstyle. MK who has lived most of his life with two narcissists, turned out to be the most normal person in the Bae's household, all thanks to DN and the Geum's. Yes he is going to lose two family members overnight and see them being held accountable for the crimes they have committed. As for NS, this is the same woman who has chosen to abandon her own daughter not once but twice. Why should SH feel any affiliation to a woman like that? Now that she hears about her switching the younger boys to live a luxurious life, she has no reservation to want to try to like or accept her as her mom. She was simply a woman who has given birth to her and left her at the doorstep of an orphanage. NS is more like an egg donor than a mom to SH. Even if NS had managed to raise enough money in time to go back to the orphanage and try to pay for SH's surgery and treatment, I doubt she would want to bring her to the Yoon's and explain how and why SH is with her. SH would be deemed a liability and an excess baggage to her new cushy life. I wish Ji Sang would disown NS for the nasty, unethical and inhumane things she has done all her life to sustain her comfortable lifestyle and to maintain/keep up her clean and nice image in front of Ji Sang. I am just glad he found out about NS being behind the switch and abandoning her own child and her half-sister, SH. Someone should have told him beforehand as he is an adult now and has to learn how to handle the reality and cruelties in RL.
  7. NS needs to look into a mirror and see for herself how ugly she is. She is just reaping what's she has sowed. Not surprised NS only come clean and admitted to papa Geum she switched the two boys and took JJ's place when he asked her about the switcheroo. Too bad her lies and half-truths made papa Geum and JR skeptical and not wanting to believe her and her words without thinking if she was lying or hiding something again. So now we know that she has made up that part about her modeling career too since she went to JJ for comfort right after abandoning her own baby. NS still wants and had wanted to be looked after by papa Geum and the late JJ when she gets/got into trouble. A dead person can't speak for herself but now papa Geum has decided to sever his ties with his younger 'sister' who has sinned, deceived, hurt and harmed so many people in her life because of her own greed and in search of a better life. I think NS's karma will be ending up as either an anonymous heart donor to SH or SH will not be told it's NS's heart that has replaced hers when her condition deteriorates to the point where a new heart is necessary and vital for her survival. JR was right and his decision to give NS a taste of her own medicine by sending Ji Sang abroad and keeping them apart was brilliant. That thought itself alone kills her since she holds him dear and most important to her heart. Madam Sa and MH are only good at blackmailing people with their disadvantages or weaknesses. Both hardly ever worked and held a decent job all their lives. Both are obsessed and have no problem putting the blame of their own 'misfortunes' on others. JR knows that the blackmailing and ridiculous demands made by the kkangpae mama for a company or a restaurant business will not stop her from resorting to threatening him again when things don't go well for her or the business that could be given to her. Thanks to NS who got MH her job and made her and her family become in-laws with the Yoon's, JR has become the latest target of the Bae women's extortion. Thank God for the return of Mr. Kim! I have been praying and longing for him to be released the day he was put unfairly behind bars for crimes his ungrateful employer has committed. It's finally fun to watch and it's payback time for the Bae women who have not treated him well. They do not deserve his sympathy or forgiveness too. He worked tediously and tolled in the heat and cold but was only paid peanuts. He was known to be smart, efficient, good-natured and a filial son who jumped at the opportunity when offered by his stingy ex-boss to pick up some herbal health tonic goods for his parents whom he was not allowed to visit during the important holidays like Chuseok and Lunar New Year. He was just unfortunate to have landed himself a job as the sidekick of Madam Sa. But we know Mr. Kim was actually the man and the brain behind who oversaw the day-to-day operations of her business. @jayakris I agree with @Ldy Gmerm that the money Mr. Kim supposedly laundered is kept hidden in a safe place. The police will normally keep a tab on criminals who are suspected to have links to money laundering for a period of time. Mr. Kim has to be cautious and smart enough not to flash and dig out his stash so soon after his release from jail. And as to why he was eating fish cake at a roadside stand? The man could be freshly out of prison and he might have craved for some comfort food. And sometimes the best food are found in a humble stall by the road or a small eatery. Funny why he hasn't returned to his hometown but has decided to appear in Madam Sa's neighborhood or was at it a stall in the vicinity of PJ Group? Mr. Kim has returned with a vengeance and an agenda to get back at the people who have distrusted his loyalty. JR and Dr. Han have Mr. Kim to thank and just like @jayakris has said in his post, JR might not have to fall prey to Madam Sa's blackmail and extortion. Let Mr. Kim handle the two harpies. MH will break apart and really grow crazy when she finds out her mom is the one behind her miserable life by plowing Dr. Han down and hurting his hand so badly in her hit-and-run accident. @jayakris although Madam Sa's hit-and-run was not purely intentional and happened likely because she didn't keep her eyes on the road, she is still liable to be charged for running away from the scene and not offering assistance to the victim as a result of her accident. Well, knowing the Bae women, the kkangpae illegal money lender will put the blame on Dr. Han for insisting to marry MH even without her blessings and approval. Madam Sa will probably say the accident occurred when she was looking for the directions to the church where the ceremony was supposed to take place. JR described the young faker as a 'nice boy' so he is just being that to NS and MH. I like how he calmly explained to Cray Cray he didn't marry her just because she blackmailed him but he said MH was just like him. Under Cray Cray's 'normal' circumstances, she would have reacted hysterically and kicked up a ruckus but she was calm, more composed and seemed to understand (but not accept) what the faker was telling her. It was her visit to her mom's that made Madam Sa come up with a plan to ask JR blatantly for a company. On a different note, Dr. Han was very gracious to have asked the faker to go into the Yoon's to see Madam Eun for the sake of his Halmoni's health and welfare and he also could see the faker was genuinely concerned and worried about her. He didn't stop or get in the way unlike the faker who before spilling the beans, was trying hard to hide, block and stall Dr. Han's reunion and reconciliation with his blood family. I too see that the faker could be asked or permitted to stay by Madam Eun's side to help nurse her, cook for her and to help slow down the progress of her Alzheimer's disease.
  8. Credit: MBC Is the drama being extended because some of the focus will be shifted to Madam Eun now since she seemed to have lost (some/part of) her memory after overhearing MH telling JR about the switch of the two boys? Kind of lame and irresponsible of the writer in my opinion. Credit: MBC The faker is going to ask for a divorce and end it with MH. Good! Is Madam Sa blatantly asking JR for money and company in his office? Oh my.... JR should instead ask Madam Sa to repay him the amount he paid out to her creditors.
  9. Considering the significance, sobriety and gravity of yesterday's turn of events, I tried very hard to refrain from talking about MH's hideous shower curtain dress. Thanks to @watchumlots, I really had a good laugh and a great start to my day. MH is probably the new housekeeper since the help has not been sighted ever since MH forced her way into the Yoon's by doing what she excels in, blackmailing. @Ldy Gmerm Your brilliant suggestion of a muzzle and a straight jacket for Cray Cray cracked me up. In case the Yoon's aren't able to get those on time, they could perhaps use some of the loose scraps, excessive material and flaps hanging from the black and red attire she wore when she announced to everyone in the household about the switcheroo and SH being an abandoned child of NS. I would imagine how dry cleaning MH's wardrobe could be such a chore for the dry cleaner. She probably could just run her green shower curtain dress under the shower for a quick rinse and wear it as an apron dress. MH has never been serious about her job at PJ Group. In the beginning, she was slacking but pretended to work to please the Yoon's especially JR. Now she isn't even bothered to act interested in the job she got through NS's connection. She was reporting for work later and currently she is almost invisible and absent from the office, preferring to invest her time in scheming and plotting how to get hold of more money to obtain more illegal shares. What a shameless leech of a woman. She is the scum of the earth and a benefit scrounger. More noticeably, her motor mouth has turned into a killer/poisonous mouth. It was MH who caused Madam Eun's unplanned and sudden collapse from the shock of discovering the fake and real grandson. MH's same killer/poisonous mouth will likely cause SH to go down too judging from the preview. MH waits for her prey and will seize the opportunity to appear before SH to terrorize her after DN departs from the scene. DN and SH could have been visiting a hospital to run a checkup on SH's recurring chest pains. DN was probably there to make sure SH gets her worrying condition verified and treated. MH's twisted mind has singled out SH mainly as the root of all her woes. Dr. Han comes in a close second. She is now the ticking dynamite waiting to blow up and make those she thinks are responsible for her failure to land herself more wealth, status and power pay big time. She managed to bring NS down and after what the faker did for her and told her why he did it, NS looked resigned to accepting her fate. She reprimanded the inconsiderate and selfish MH for causing the elderly Matriarch to become unconscious. Let's hope that nobody dies from shock in the process. Back to the main drama. The faker has turned into a heroic lone ranger who is adamant to make up for his grave mistake of deceiving the Yoon's by leaving the Yoon's household. He had planned to take his absence permanently by announcing to Madam Eun he is going on a trip. He thanked JR for the 30 years he had raised him with love and all the monetary and materialistic benefits. I have to wonder why the faker wanted to pay MH alimony if she follows him and leave the household without kicking up a ruckus. As I have mentioned before, there is no need for him to pay MH a single cent in the case of a divorce. The faker or the Yoon's could counter-sue her for damages to their reputation and compensation arising from her blackmail to coerce the faker into a marriage. @Ldy Gmerm I can also see a time jump and the faker returning to be accepted and embraced once again by the Yoon's. Maybe there will be no official adoption but their relationships can be mended since he was the only one to come clean with the truth behind the identity switch of the two boys. His confession was very late, but better owning up and coming clean than never. NS is a lost cause because time and again, she stuck to and defended her lies in order to stay in the household and more importantly near Ji Sang. I also thought MH was way out of line when she spoke in that tone and behaved irrationally in front of JR while trying to relate NS's main involvement in deceiving them. JR seems very agitated and warned her sternly to watch her mouth since she had no reservations making those accusations of her MIL, JR's wife and Ji Sang's mom. MH has no class and decorum. Both money and an expensive education cannot buy her those attributes. JR has reserved his punishment and opinion of NS since he has to be careful not to alarm his sickly mother and cause her to collapse from shock. She will be dealt with after Madam Eun's medical emergency because her health scarce can stand between life and death. With MH's bust-up with JR and the Yoon's, I don't foresee how the delusional woman can continue to remain in the household. That means she will likely have to move back and live with her mom in the small and humble apartment MK rented. There is only a single room in the apartment there so DN and MK will have to relocate and live with the Geum's. We will see more confrontations between NS and JR, papa Geum and NS, NS and Ji Sang in the remaining episodes. I am keeping my fingers crossed and hope to see the faker reunited with his biological terminally ill dad too. I am still wishful either KPD or Mr. Kim has incriminating evidence that will put the self-aggrandizing Madam Sa on trial for her part in Dr. Han's hit-and-run.
  10. JR's anger cannot be contained after seeing KSW's photo which was submitted by Mr. Choi along with the detailed fire incidents in Namwon. He went home to be met by NS and he asked her to follow him as he has questions to ask her. NS was all worried and kept asking what was it that JR wanted to talk about. Just then, a chirpy Madam Eun arrived home with the faker. JR turned to them and Madam Eun related how she has enjoyed her little date with her 'grandson' earlier. JR instructed MH to lead Madam Eun to her room and she was pleased as she said she felt tired from the outing. NS and the faker joined JR in his study. JR first asked the faker, "JS, you told me you do not know KPD. Is that really true?" JR: "Answer me, tell me what is this picture?" as he retrieved KSW's photo from his suit pocket and asked why is the boy in the picture known as 'KSW'. The sly NS acted surprised and insisted the boy in the photo is JS (the faker). JR said "Right. It's supposed to be JS's picture. But the boy in the picture is the son of KPD." NS exclaimed in disbelief saying it's absurd and there must have been some kind of mistake. The faker however, told JR he was right to say the name of the boy in the photograph is 'KSW' and he is not YJS but KSW to JR's astonishment. JR turned to NS and told her she was the one to bring the faker to them and he thinks she has a part to play in this matter. NS insisted she had no idea and it's all a misunderstanding. JR took a few steps forward to approach NS but the faker stepped in and told JR he was the one to tell NS he is 'YJS' and NS has no idea he was a fake. He added he had pretended to be YJS because the real boy (Dr. Han) was missing. JR was almost lost for words and couldn't believe he has been living with a fake son all these years. The faker apologized to JR and told him it's all his fault. JR vented out his anger and frustration by throwing documents, files and whatever he caught sight of on the table of his study at the faker. NS watched in fear and shock as she has never seen JR so agitated and this angry before. The commotion didn't go unnoticed and Madam Eun barged into the study and intervened. She chided JR for admonishing the faker. JR was too upset and told MH and NS to get his mom out of the room. During JR and the faker's one-to-one talk, the faker told JR his missing son has been found and it's Dr. Han. JR questioned the faker why Dr. Han hasn't said anything about the matter to him and he told him he was at fault by stalling the truth to be revealed. He told JR not to forgive him. After JR left and reconciled with his real son, father and son had a little talk outside the temple. JR asked Dr. Han why hasn't he approached him to tell him what he has found out and he might have regretted not being able to find his real family by keeping silent. Dr. Han assured him they are now reunited. Dr. Han asked JR how did he find out he is his son. JR explained it was KSW's photo that led him to knowing the truth. He told his son the faker was the one to tell NS he is 'YJS' to the disbelief of Dr. Han. JR does seem to have his doubts that a kid could lead NS to believe him that he is the real JS. JR then turned to his son and asked him if he remembers JJ's friend. He nodded. His response led JR to shake his head by lamenting, "Really, that kid...". Dr. Han changed the topic by asking if Madam Eun knows about him too. JR said not yet and he doesn't know how to break the rather shocking news to her. But JR commented how Madam Eun has always been fond of Dr. Han and probably that is because she has an intuition that tells her Dr. Han is her grandson. NS was trying to calm Madam Eun while shaking in fear after one of their secrets has been revealed. NS lied to Madam Eun that JR and the faker had a disagreement about work. The faker later went to Madam Eun's room and told her he is really sorry and he has made a mistake. He also revealed that he is going on a trip. Madam Eun prompted the faker to tell her the reason behind their fight and to leave it to her to talk to JR. Madam Eun jumped to the conclusion that the faker and JR had fought over his decision to leave for a trip instead of taking over JR's business. Madam Eun was puzzled by the faker's sudden decision because she thought he has settled down and joined the company to be groomed as JR's successor. The faker was crying buckets and told her how grateful he will forever be to her and apologized to her one more time. The faker's gift of an expensive camera delighted Ji Sang. The faker told Ji Sang to take care of JR, NS and Madam Eun. When the faker apologized, Ji Sang smelled something fishy and said, "First a present. Now an apology." Ji Sang thought the camera was a 'bribe' and asked the faker if he has wronged him in some way that he needs to feel sorry about. The faker's reply was he has and although he isn't sure how Ji Sang will remember it later, to him, Ji Sang is (like) the real brother in his lifetime. @Ldy Gmerm Thank you for your recaps and @jayakris for the translations! m(_ _)m
  11. Synopsis In the drama "Golden Pouch”, Seok-hoon, a genius doctor who is an orphan loses his memory due to an accident on his wedding day. He wakes up mistakenly believing that the actors that were hired to pretend as his parents during the wedding as his real parents. He develops close ties with the couple and for the first time in his life he experiences what it feels like to belong in a two-parent family. Later, the couple takes him in as their own son. Seol-hwa is the second daughter in the family who stays upbeat no matter how hard her life gets. One day, she comes across Seok-hoon, who is suffering from amnesia. Can she and Seok-hoon overcome the sticky threads of fate to fall in love? This romantic comedy revolves around an irritable doctor who abandons his profession to become a cook as he gets involved with a headstrong woman. The above synopsis is taken from MBC's "Golden Pouch" website. I didn't know this drama is supposed to be a romantic comedy. I keep wondering why my Kleenex keeps running out and needs to be replenished sooner than usual. Kudos to all the cast on Golden Pouch for they are all brilliant and excelled in their respective roles in this drama. Just finished watching the subbed English version and I get the feeling the faker is going to protect the women in his life. It all started with MH's blackmail and the faker (in his mind) succumbed to it to protect SH. The next episode we see the faker taking the lead and honoring his promise to Dr. Han. He is going to come clean and take all the responsibilities for the switcheroo to protect the 'mother' who raised him and pleaded with him to help her before his decision to fess up. His date with Madam Eun was a farewell gift and his show of appreciation to the elderly woman who raised, loved and protected him thinking he is her first grandson since the day he entered the Yoon's. He is also hoping the outing and (final) time spent together (as her 'grandson') will somehow help in a minute way to cushion the enormous shock she is about to be exposed to. Like @jayakris has said, NS watches like an outsider/observer as the faker bears the brunt of JR's wrath after he confesses his role in the identity fraud. I hope the faker's act of sacrificial spirit stops right there although he is naive to think JR would believe a then 6 y.o kid could hatch and execute a plan like that 30 years ago. Please faker, don't feel responsible for that greedy and malicious wife of yours. She should be charged for using blackmail to coerce him into a marriage on top of the other additional criminal charges she could likely face. MH should be imprisoned and not paid a single cent of alimony from the Yoon's pocket. JR must have received more findings on the fire reports in Namwon from Mr. Choi at the end of the day before that explosive display of emotions and anger. NS will not be spared because she is the mastermind behind all this saga and she has ruined 4 kids' lives due to her greed, hunger for power and status, selfish, materialistic desires and ambitions. NS who doesn't seem to have a conscience will be shocked to find out the faker looked up to her as his mother figure despite her nastiness. JR waited for NS's return in the dark and with his piercing eyes he called NS "Ji Sang's mom" instead of the usual " Yeobo ". Before retiring to their bedroom, he added "I trust you". Those three words sure carried a lot of weight and underlying meaning. He said them in support of his thinking that NS has been acting differently and he doesn't know the reasons behind her change in behavior. NS is still holding on to the end of a thin rope by insisting and pleading with the faker to help her continue to lie in order to keep her place in the Yoon's. NS still thinks she has a chance by saying it's their words against Dr. Han's. She is foolish to think she could argue and say he might not really recall the exact/actual details surrounding the fire. Apparently, she fails to understand that there are no secrets in the real world. To NS who refuses to wake up and smell the stench in her well-deserved 'reserved place' in a cell, this is what I will tell her: Dream on! I know it's unlikely but any possibility KPD witnessed Madam Sa's hit-and-run on the day he was supposed to meet Dr. Han at the Victoria Hotel? Madam Sa needs to tumble hard and go down along with the other two harpies, NS and MH. I don't want to see a time jump and watch these women be allowed to walk away from their unforgivable and despicable crimes/sins and go relatively scot-free. Probably it's the first time I hope a drama can be extended for the viewers to see a good or complete ending!
  12. That particular scene of big sister SH hugging her little brother Ji Sang really tucked at my heartstrings. What a sweet gesture! SH knows now why she has always been fond of him from the start. They are related and share similar characteristics. Ji Sang told SH he might be going abroad to study and invited her to come along. SH rejected his offer but the parting shot of the two siblings was probably one of the best and most memorable scene in today's episode. We knew NS was evil and heartless. But to stoop so low and use her MIL's health to try to dissuade Dr. Han from coming forward was inhumane. To think that she has spent almost 30 years living with her MIL! After Dr. Han's meeting with NS, he charged into the faker's office to confront him on why he didn't tell him NS was the woman in Namwon. I was shocked to hear the faker say because she is his mom. The faker grew up practically without a mom and despite being ill-treated by NS, he actually looks up to NS as a mother figure. So sad. That could also be the reason he told MH not to get NS involved in her evil plan and plot to overtake PJ Group. I don't think the faker is aware that MH is blackmailing her MIL for money to purchase illegal shares. The faker asked Dr. Han to give him some time before he reveals the truth after their confrontation. That was why he took Madam Eun out on a 'date' to show his appreciation and gratitude before admitting (his part in) the identity fraud. On a different note, JR's most trusted aide would have no recollection of the boy NS brought to the Yoon's almost 30 years ago. The picture of the young boy Mr. Choi claimed to be the young KSW, son of KPD took JR by surprise. I am relieved JR has finally found his real son and was the first one to acknowledge him. JR will need to explain it calmly to Madam Eun. Papa Geum's offer and insistence to make his 'son' a meal of dumplings reminded Dr. Han of the handmade dumplings his late mother used to make. The three stars' song papa Geum was humming while working in the kitchen and the truth that papa Geum has no knowledge that JJ is no longer around caused Dr. Han to break down in tears. Thank you so much for your explanation and translations @jayakris. You are most welcome @Ldy Gmerm and TBH my first reaction when NS continued to deny her involvement and knowledge of the switcheroo was NS deserves a place in hell. I think the writer is setting up NS to be SH's heart donor. SH is likely going to collapse in the next episode.
  13. Credit: MBC MNS just doesn't get it. Her time is up. I am boiling mad after watching this clip. NS pretended not to know what Dr. Han was talking about when he told her she was the woman who left him near the river on the night of the fire in Namwon. When Dr. Han told NS he saw her with JJ in the trio photo that belonged to papa Geum, she acted like she had no idea the kid she brought to the Yoon's was KSW and not JJ's son. She protested and asked why is Dr. Han doing this (the questioning/interrogation) to her. She stood up and was preparing to leave the cafe when Dr. Han said he was going to find? or approach? his dad and Halmoni. The evil NS looked at Dr. Han in the eye and said he should reconsider his plan carefully as Madam Eun is not in the best of health before stepping out of the cafe. @jeijei The hug between Dr. Han and JR at the temple in the preview was so touching and emotional. I'm off to watch the raw full episode now.
  14. Sorry to shorten your post @Ldy Gmerm. In addition to the reasons you have posted above, I think the benevolent papa Guem felt compelled to help the abandoned baby who shares a similar heart condition as the young son he and his wife lost. I agree with you that papa Geum might not have romantic feelings for NS but the way the trio photo was found hidden in the obscure spot under his clothes in his closet only fuel more hatred, distrust, resentment and anger in CJ. NS has tried so hard to whitewash her background and roots. Since she has carved out a new life based on a web of lies and deceits, I find it a little puzzling and out of character she hasn't changed her name or used an alias. It would buy her more time when suspicion surrounding her arises. CH was determined and adamant to protect SH after meeting the awful birth mother of SH. She was on the same page as papa Geum and thought how heartless that wretched woman is to turn away her own child when she came to her. That sealed her will to keep and continue to treat SH as her own and she wanted no part of this selfish witch to be near or close to SH. Notice NS's pursed lips when confronted by CJ. It showed how defiant and unrepentant she is. NS is totally beyond redemption as she was unmoved or unapologetic after hearing how CJ suffered almost 30 years in her marriage and SH had no place or real sense of belonging at home or in life due to the misconception and deceit surrounding SH's birth. The excuse NS cooked up for CJ's unexpected visit sounds stale, over-used and contrived. Ji Sang might be navie but he certainly isn't foolish. He knows and senses there were more behind the surface and I was really glad he voiced his suspicions of his mom in front of JR and Madam Eun. I wonder what Dr. Han had intended to talk about with papa Geum before CJ charged into his dumpling shop threatening divorce. I can't blame CJ for holding on to the firm belief that NS was the woman her husband thinks of whenever he gets drunk. He would start humming the song about flowers and that would p**s CJ off each time he sings it. She would even tell him to return to that woman's place whenever papa Geum hit a melancholic mood/note. Things with Dr. Han are certainly not over for SH. She was quick to contact the faker the night he broke off their engagement. She felt so relieved after returning the necklace he gave her. SH is still wearing the ring and dress watch Dr. Han has presented her. I must admit that SN has won me over after seeing her behavior and treatment of SH in recent episodes. She herself admitted she was surprised 'big-mouthed SN' didn't say a word regarding NS and SH's relationship when Ji Sang asked her why she was asking him for his opinion of his mother. She was considerate, thoughtful and tactful. She must have felt bad after hearing about NS being SH's birth mom and papa Geum not being her biological dad. SH also was dealing with the shock from Dr. Han's sudden breakup with her. And SN could practically see SH's health was taking a toll and was fast deteriorating right in front of her because they work in the same company. Dr. Han is right about the faker. He is a real coward. Is he planning to disappear without coming clean and showing his gratitude to Madam Eun in particular for taking care, defending and loving him all these years? He has stolen Dr. Han's rightful place and robbed him of his childhood, bonding time and love he could have received from his Halmoni. It sounded like he was taking his final walk on the same ground with Madam Eun without saying the formalities now that the guano is close to hitting the ceiling fan. Let's hope Mr. Choi puts up and submits the detailed fire report today and I will be over the moon if JR finds out Dr. Han is his real son and approaches him for a long awaited reconciliation. @Ldy Gmerm Have to agree with you that papa Geum is in for a very rude shock after he finds out the real NS behind her veil. He has treated her like a baby sister because she is younger and thus he has sort of turned a blind eye or brushed aside the bad personality traits she has shown or displayed when they were in the orphanage. Have to LOL when MH insisted the faker and her would not be kicked out of the company even after his real identity has been exposed because she is naive to believe controlling and holding a majority of the shares in the company will warrant their butts despite the possibility of being charged for identity fraud etc. Let's hope that greedy Madam Sa get caught and sued for her inability to repay the money and high interests she had fervently helped MH raised in order to get hold of more illegal shares. Haha. Posters, let's get the popcorn and do a mental countdown to the downfall of the three Wisteria sisters. @jayakris Thank you so much for your translations! Posters on this forum are so blessed and fortunate to have you explain in detail the crucial conversations and bits surrounding the plot and story in this drama. m(_ _)m
  15. Such a sad and emotional episode. I couldn't watch yesterday's episode in one sitting. Today it is worse. SN really cares about SH. I was in tears seeing how SN ran over to embrace SH tightly when she came home with CJ. She was worried sick about her and has been trying to locate her all day long. The slap CJ gave NS didn't wake her up. She thanked CJ for taking care of SH and said SH has grown into a beautiful woman. @jayakris Did NS offer to reimburse CJ for the expenses incurred for SH's medical treatments? CJ was calling NS shameless and accused her of seeing papa Geum. NS claims that papa Geum is someone from her past. CJ met Ji Sang outside NS's office and he was shocked to see her at his mom's office. Ji Sang entered his mom's office and asked her the purpose of CJ's visit. NS at first raised her voice and became agitated when Ji Sang pressured her for the reason of CJ's visit. She then lied and told him it was something to do with the faker's failed wedding (I think). NS asked Ji Sang what he thought about going abroad to his surprise. Ji Sang said he thought NS wanted him to work with his father. NS told him to upgrade himself and not stay as a PD. She told him, "Let's go together!" Ji Sang looked at his mom with suspicion and told her she is acting strangely. NS told him to go abroad first and she will join him later making Ji Sang think NS is suggesting they leave without JR and Madam Eun. More emotional scenes of SH with CJ at the orphanage and that of papa Geum and SH in a park near the Geum's. Dr. Han has finally found out who was with him during the fire in Namwon. Papa Geum's explanation of the trio seen in the crumpled trio photo made him rush out to call NS. Despite the late hour, Dr. Han insisted that they meet up. It shouldn't be long before JR find out NS and SH's connection. He heard from Ji Sang CJ went to visit NS at Westwood. NS was in a hurry to get out of the house to meet Dr. Han. JR who just got home told her he will get the car ready. She declined his ride and told him she is meeting a friend. In the preview, CJ asked SH to resign from PJ Group and served papa Geum the divorce papers. CJ threw papa Geum's belongings at him in the dumpling shop and the scene was witnessed by Dr. Han. When CJ turned to leave in anger and in a hurry, Dr. Han told papa Geum he will go after her. Dr. Han couldn't pacify CJ because CJ turned to him and asked him if it is possible for him and SH to get back together. Dr. Han could only manage a "I'm sorry" making CJ disappointed and telling him to forget what she has just asked of him. She was still boiling and was fuming mad at papa Geum for lying to her and she must have lost faith in men and thinking to herself "Men!".
