  1. Countdown to the ending = WE DONE, WE FINISH, AMEN!!!!, CELEBRATION, RELIEF TIME & THEN SOME THANKS FOR ACCOMPANYING ME ON THIS VERY TIRESOME JOURNEY, IT’S GREAT HAVING COMPANY, YOU KEPT THINGS INTERESTING & FUN. Its donation time and a time skip, standard ending where all is forgiven. I could care less about the ending - THE IMPORTANT THING IS THAT SBS FINALLY FULFILLED THEIR PROMISE AND END THE DA*N SHOW. Ep 120 finale recap BW visits YS she is calling her selfish for making her worry about her. BW packs YS things she tells YS that the only way she can make things up to her is by living and paying her sins for the rest of her life. BW takes YS home receiving a thanks from docs (BW finally gets a car). WW updates the family as to YS’s health situation being critical, all listen sympathetic, OHW tells BW that she opposes BW donating her liver and why. Docs and YS visits a worried CR at the prison hospital, she is in the usual contrite/repentance mode, its now waiting for a liver time. BW calls WH for a date telling him that she is a match for the transplant, he understands why she wants to do it and offers support. BW convinced moms and pops for the surgery but could not convince OHW, WH brings OHW to DJ’s site and convinces her to let BW do the surgery. Docs got the news that a donor was available and brings YS to the hospital where they found out that it was BW who lets her know why she is doing it. Prior to the surgery, there is a mother/daughter making up with a tearful hug. It’s a 3 year time skip OTP stops by BY school where he gives a presentation, the family is there OHW/moms with the OTP (boy still looks the same except they added glasses). Afterwards, BY has corsages pinned on moms & pops, JY/DM/SC clothes. JY is now the owner of the salon CR is released from prison to be greeted by BW/YS it is a happy greeting to the point that BW tells CR to call her unni and all of a sudden it appears that BW/YS/CR will now become the best of friends (I got sick with this scene). The women visited docs who seems to have left the hospital but is providing free medical service, it’s a happy greeting. BW is hosting a show where she tastes a chef dish and tells him what she thinks is in it and her opinions about the food with WH watching in the background smiling. WH gives the staff BW stickered coffee. CR meets SC at the salon where it appears she is trying to make things up to him but he is cool towards her. SC’s restaurant has expanded/ he has a bigger restaurant, OTP are at the opening wishing him all the best. CR comes there and is greeted by them, it appears that SC offers her a job at the restaurant, all is well in that 4 people world i.e. BW, WH, SC, CR. OTP are in their room, WH says he is reviewing their wish list, he talks about the family photo and says that there is one thing missing. BW asks what was that, he tells her giving BY a younger sibling, BW smiles a bit and WH goes into baby making mode. Its family photo day in which all the characters are dressed in white shirt and jeans, WW/WK has a daughter even though you do not see much of her, CGJ runs in to take a picture. Photo is taken in the typical kimichi, finger snap smiling faces style. LIDD FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY ENDS Other – as stated before there were no surprises with this ending as it was the atypical kdaily that disappointed us greatly into becoming the typical makjang daily & then some. To state that I am glad that it is over would be an understatement. With the all is well with the world with the 4 the only slight surprise I got but got a very sick hint of is a possible reunion of SC/CR as a couple in the future. Are you saying that SC could not do better than CR, PDs/writer? THAT IS BEYOND BEYOND DISGUSTING!!!!! I may comment during the day, but one thing is definite after my last download and subbed watch by Saturday LIDD goes into the bin not be recycled. I will have my 19+gb space back. Take care everyone, thanks for being here, see you at a next post somewhere on this site, good luck and have a great new week.
  2. BW is too kind-hearted!! Unlike her own mom and that lunatic CRazee whom I still hated her for all the evil misdeeds she committed on BW which to me is totally unforgivable! Her jail sentence is too lenient and now she's confined to a hospital prison which is too comfortable for her crimes! I think it has already been established in kdailies and most Asian dramas excluding Japanese (that I have watched) have a tendency to go extremely light on the predators, evil doers and bullies in terms of punishment instead they reward them a lot. The one who rewards them it’s usually the same victim and those good people connected to them, I have given up seeing proper punishment given in these shows as it makes a mockery, insult, hypocrisy and a joke on responsibility, the ineffectiveness/unfairness of a country’s legislative system on criminal actions in meting out proper punishment in spite of any petition claiming victim says go light on attacker and consequences of one’s actions. Therefore there is no moral compass as far as I am concern because it is telling others who watch these shows that it is okay, once you appear contrite that all is beyond forgiven and you will not have to really suffer the true consequences of said action. If I follow it, I will go crazy so I have chosen to ignore it, what doesn’t surprise me is that is why there is a fair amount of vigilante shows out there which states that victim will take care of things by themselves especially when the legal system does not work. For dailies they have the women i.e. become Saints upon saints which turns us off completely. That includes organ transplants because as usual they match, come to think of it, this was done before in a previous daily I watched last year - the victim so happen to be a match of the woman who stole her man, took her father as her own, indirectly responsible for causing the victim's daughter's death and it was the man's child as well, That's just the tip of surface, their solution give the bully the transplant and amnesia to forget all the bad things that she did and have the mother in prison who was worse for I think under a year. Looking forward to countdown 0. Gone for now
  3. Countdown to the ending = 1 left I really need a break from dailies after this one, I have become desensitized by LIDD. As stated in a previous post I was going to try Lovers in Bloom, however after the first episode which I had some trouble watching live I felt nothing, no interest at all to hold me nor in a rush to watch the subbed version. So I am going to give dailies a break for a while definitely not in a rush to watch the others as I cannot watch mbc live stream either and I am fine with that Finding YS is not easy on the mentality of others especially BW and CR Ep 119 recap YS collapses at the OTP’s wedding, she is taken to OHW’s room to rest while CGJ watches over her. WW tells the family the situation regarding YS’s health. BW insists on going on the honeymoon though it seems to bother her. YS wakes up and left on her own though others insist that she stayed and docs was on her way. She later visit a contrite CR in the so called prison hospital where both said that they were sorry etc. SC informs moms and pops, JY/DM that YS is BW’s mother which surprises them. SC later visits a contrite CR who tells him why she ran etc. from him those 7 years ago, it’s a civil talk. As BW was bothered by the YS’s news, she tells WH that she changed her mind about the honeymoon, which he agreed to saying they should do something similar to WK/WW. So the OTP stayed in a hotel room, talking, writing a wish list while BY is asleep. They later greeted moms and pops with BW unable to sleep and WH watches over her. Docs is unable to find YS as she is not responding to her calls etc. he gets depressed starts drinking stating that it is his fault. WW tries to talk some sense into him. WH contacts his lawyer asking him to find YS and tells him who she is to BW. OTP arrives home with BY and BW prepares the family meal it’s a “happy moment”. OHW is extra nice to BY. The OTP are in a larger room with a happy WH hugging his wife, he gets the call as to the location of YS. WH tries to convince BW to more or less forgive YS but she is being stubborn. WH sees YS who is volunteering at an orphanage, it seems that she is okay however she is also in pain as the medicine is not working as well. BW meets WH in his office where they had an initial pleasant talk only for him to bring up YS as to her pain and knowing where she is, BW is refusing but finally breaks down admitting to having a hard time with the whole situation. WH hugs her while she cries. CR finds out from docs the true status of YS’s health which has her broken, she later calls BW asking her for help which BW refuses to do. CR starts praying for YS’s life. BW meets pops and gets his counsel as to YS and forgiveness. BW goes to meet YS in which she is bitter but at the same time you get that she will help YS. Show ends Preview - WW gives the family an update as to YS's health BW talks to YS being bitter towards her behavior The nurse is talking to a depressed CR OTP are walking and talking with a concerned WH Other – the purpose of this episode was to show how important a role that YS plays in both BW and CR lives as a mother. The one she abandoned vs the one that she coddled, you see that but it’s more a conscience/ forgiveness type of thing. As expected there was no passionate scene with the OTP, they are just there. The show ends tomorrow (I hope). It seems that SBS may go back on their no dailies statement, I saw an preview clip that seem to indicate otherwise. Take care
  4. Thank you @awsparkle for providing updates on this show. All of us wants this to end quickly, its like a toothache that hurts and refuses to come out. As for SBS, they had months to decide what to do with the timeslot once their decision was made that there will be no more dailies from them, this stalling tactics does not help but hurts them. Its like nothing was done at all; very few would be interested if they brought something new to show there, its an annoyance one that irritates me as a recapper. I am glad for the extra hour sleep but to be frank, & no offense to the profession, I am not a fan of the dentist, I just want to it end quickly,painlessly and move on. This just sucks big time. Take care
  5. There is football tomorrow so no LIDD and like @whome stated they should just show the last two episodes back to back and end our misery. It seems like misery likes company here. However, I get an extra hour of sleep. This is by no means my final post but I am going to take precedence here and give my final thoughts of a daily before it ends. Presumptuous of me but in this case it is warranted and I encourage my fellow viewers and those who just come to stop by to do the same. After all its just 2 episodes and we have an idea of how its going to end anyway. Long post here, likely to be on next page here. My LIDD folder size – over 19gb of videos which includes this little word document of over 256 pages. By the time I have written my last recap which will be May 30, 2017. I am likely to have written close to 270 pages with close to 150,000 words in total. I by the way do not think I am obsessive compulsive just an organisation freak when it comes to shows that I so happen to recap as I want to ensure that all thoughts and my responses are there especially in the case of responding to back it up. If I need a point of reference I can always come back to it, plus it’s easier to manage when writing recaps/comments. I do it there first, copy, paste and tweak at soompi without having to worry about losing anything per se. Plus I can spend as long as possible typing without having to think about how long I have been on soompi to write one comment, recap etc. My first post here started in December 2016 when I have just more or less started getting into watching kdailies regularly in a somewhat typical k-addict manner and I was not watching much anyway. My decision to volunteer recapping came on January 11, 2017 episode 32 which to my surprise all of you have enjoyed and it is with your encouragement and my commitment to complete this show no matter what how bad it got will make us realize that by May 30, 2017 equals a huge celebration of our own. THANK GOODNESS IT IS OVER. The reason why I decided to recap – the time that this show started fell into my resolution of getting up by 5:00 am watch the show, exercise, do a minor mental/spiritual restoration and then get ready for work. All which could be completed by 7:00 am and I will still be able to reach work on time. However as you know resolutions get shifted and I opted to recap instead as I was enjoying the show too much and figured others may need to know what’s happening before going through their day or night; it’s not all the time we want to wait to find out what happened and become dependent on the raw. I do not speak Korean but as a standard K-addict of over 9 years you get an idea as to what is happening in the drama or daily so it’s fairly easy for me to watch it live and recap. So why not let you know, as such I have been rewarded a lot by your comments and kudos etc., for that – THANKS A LOT!!!!! YES BY MAY 30, WE FINALLY COMPLETED A DAILY WHICH HAD THE POTENTIAL TO BE AN ATYPICAL QUALITY ONE AND IT SELF DEFLATED INTO A UNDER PERFORMING DISAPPOINTING DAILY. WE WILL BE VERY VERY HAPPY THAT IT’S OVER. We also will be very glad that SBS has decided to stop broadcasting dailies because if this is the caliber then it does not surprise us. This show had us on high for close to 70 episodes and then afterwards messed it up close to beyond recognition that has viewers from all over the world went into a cussing, angry tizzy to say the least. This show quality which was in a B frame went to a Y frame on the grading scale here. In other words it was not a drop by drop but a complete DROP OFF. It had a wide scale quality drop not only in its story line but in its so called high quality in terms of props, clothes, location, acting etc. which became very obvious to us as the show continued its self-deflating spiral. From the time that SBS publicly announced that this daily will be its last, poor decisions were made that had the show combust/deflate on itself and on us viewers. SBS granted it’s your last daily, one would think that you would do your best to make it as good as possible instead they made it worse. You had to question at all times the sensibility of all worked at SBS not only the PDs, but the writer and the senior executives who made decisions. It’s like they lacked pride and respect in what they were doing and did so to the actors, their staff who worked very hard to bring the show and the viewers as well. I felt bad for us but in a way more so for the actors who had to do a job with the poor quality scripts they were receiving and having to portray someone that is believable to us. Its a job and I really hope they get paid for it now that it is over just like all of us they need a salary to support themselves and those important to them. We as viewers are suckers as well, we saw the downward spiral but chose to barely hang on with the hopeless hope that this show would improve and go back to what and why we liked it in the first place. Unfortunately no luck and believe me when I say that there were times I wanted to stop recapping but could not because I hate breaking promises of things that I volunteered for. So I had to plod on/continue, plus from reading the comments here some of you were somewhat dependent on the recaps to determine whether they should watch the show or not for the day. I plodded and joined with you in my frustration with this daily. At times I felt like a scam artist in encouraging people to watch the show because in the early part it was getting good and addictive bringing them in only for them to be hurt later on. That was not my intent, but it appears that was the show’s intent with its complete absence of creativity etal. I watched the subbed episode 118 because it is the final stretch and there were no surprises for us which is likely to be the same by the ending. As it will likely be in a typical kdaily manner so it’s no surprise: that the OTP got married and we never get to see a passionate scene. It would be a miracle if we see one now that CR is now contrite for her actions after getting a so called beaten reality check that as in most dailies for killing a person a punishment which in my mind should equal close to 10 years hard labor etc. equaled 3 years of nothing despite the petition of the plaintiff of a reduced sentence. It still should be 7 years it makes a mockery and insult to all the efforts made in finding the culprit etc. there is never a real punishment/consequent action that is given that is equivalent to the crime(s) or bad behavior committed to someone as they are always beyond forgiven. Forgiveness and justice is a given a bad name as such our children are being taught that it is okay to be evil as you are never given a punishment that would make you regret doing so in the first place. Being so called contrite is enough and making "amends" that OHW did not suffer any real consequences for her disgusting and abusive behavior to the heroine of the story. All she did was finally accept BW as her DIL. that the heroine chose to give Mother Teresa a bad name in saintliness that YS will get no punishment per se at all as an accessory/aide to CR's sins that docs now knowing that YS may be dying is feeling a bit of remorse that there is a strong likelihood of BW being the donor of YS’s liver transplant hence she will live in the end, they will become true mother & daughter that annoying couple JY/DM did not move out or divorce (its likely that they are pregnant/have baby by ep. 120 with time skip). They really prove to me to be an irrelevant couple for the whole show. that WW/WK are together with a child even though she does not look pregnant at around 4 months the OTP who felt like an OTP in the beginning no longer felt like one It’s a surprise and very sad that the daily lost its true way in failing to continue & consistently to entertain us but instead frustrate us. It seems that all I am writing are negatives here and now I have to write some positives about the show. I liked: the OTP as they were good people all around and for the most part consistent and true to their personalities moms and pops who were parents to SC/BW especially pops the voice of reason and wisdom. Though moms frustrate & annoy me at times with her actions/words SC despite there were times that I got angry with his actions/secrecy he was for the most part a true friend to the OTP supportive of their relationship and an ear to both BY a good child raised by BW and the grandparents with the potential of becoming a good adult the chef & sou chef at the restaurant that BW worked at, though I could never believe that was a true restaurant that was called top performing Although she took a little getting used to in the beginning I liked CGJ for her loyalty and in her in your face/blunt personality. BW’s co-workers at BH Group as they were a decent set of people excluding CR WK who was a good sister to WH that for every episode there was a preview of the next one which either entice or give us ideas as what will happen, usually in our world it rarely does go the way we want it to the detective who was a clean committed policeman who helped BW for those 7 years even though he did not have to and as such in a indirect way gave the police force a decent grade. I love and enjoy being here reading your comments and responding to them be it in agreement, disagreement, laughter, frustration or anger. I would like to commend all of you for providing your $1 thoughts to this forum (its valued more than a penny or 2 cents to me), shout out to all of you. Special shout outs to @euraka for your clips which helped a lot of us; @Ldy Gmerm whose comments are usually so spot on showing how perceptive you are; @shamrockmom I enjoy reading your viewpoints both here and at your site you never cease to amaze me with your sharp humor and eyesight in spotting props; @whomewho was the first to call CR and coin the term CRazy which most of us use at times when commenting; @sava2sava who always has something of note that you have to take another look (its good); @bebebisous33whose perspective I at times disagree with especially about SC in the early part but who always in her French manner gives me a special shout out for the recaps/comments even though it appears that she is in Germany. I loved the fact that we talked here a lot and it was done in mostly a respectful, friendly manner which to me is how a forum should run especially if it’s a show you either like or dislike or your opinions differ to certain degree. To me one of the main purpose of soompi is to provide a place where fans of kdramas/dailies from all over the world are free to communicate their opinion about them which includes the characters or actors/actress who portray them in a friendly manner. In spite of everything, though the show has received our low ratings from them and us for all its worth we did like the daily LIDD. So my final recap will be on May 30, 2017 and I have to say that I am more than looking forward to it as I need a break. After watching the final subbed episode and maybe giving my final comment, the folder with all its content will be gone returning 19+gb to my laptop. I usually copy it to my backup if there is a chance of me watching it again but I really doubt that will happen with this daily. Will I ever recap a daily again, the answer is no (not never) though at times I liked it, it has been exhausting especially when I considered dropping the show and did not felt free to do so. However, I already have my next daily to watch planned which so happens to interfere with the final episodes of LIDD. That show is KBS – Lovers in Bloom the synopsis seem interesting so I am going to check it out for those who may watch it, I am likely to see you there and I may comment depending on how I feel about the episode. What I have noticed however is of late these dailies/dramas are now bringing the single mom to the forefront as a synopsis for the heroine/lead. I wonder why that is, not that I have a problem with that. Done talk/gone for now, take good care of yourselves and have a good weekend.
  6. Countdown to the ending = 2 left Couldn’t the writer just google and get some of the illnesses right? The PDs could do the same thing even if they do not consult a professional doctor google is always there to help in just about everything. Reminder that the clips are going to be late due to @euraka FIRST AID training. If someone can post it earlier that would be appreciated It’s finally a contrite CR, a very sick YS and a wedding Ep 118 recap BW proposes to WH which he accepts with a hug, SC sees them and is happy. WH gave her the ring, put his on and told BW not to take it off. The OTP found out that they would be waiting on each other even after 3 years. BW said she made up her mind the night before. The happy OTP stop by pops place, informing moms & pops of them getting married, BW told them that she proposed to WH. They ask about WH’s family, WH told them that OHW was so happy that she pushed for a quick family meeting. WH family happily meets BW’s family to discuss the wedding arrangements, it’s a good discussion in which OHW gave BW a jewelry set which she reluctantly accepted (they look much better than the brooch). BY is shown his room and he is happy there is good feelings all around. WH informs BW as to YS present to her, BW angrily goes to YS and rejects her saying that YS’s daughter is CR and to let it stay that way. At that time YS was feeling pain but she hid it from BW. CGJ comes in after seeing BW leave, she starts talking to YS telling her about the wedding who says that she is happy for BW. YS coughs up blood, CGJ gets concerned and tries to persuade her to go to the hospital but YS says no to that and CGJ is to keep the information a secret from everyone. YS meets SC and apologizes for her actions, she tells him why she did it. SC is polite to her There is an article about WH in the paper that CR looks at, she is mocked by the cellmates. CR continues with her arrogant behavior and gets a healthy dose of reality check/humble pie for it. Docs and WW visit her telling her the update regarding her case, she is accepting of her situation and appears contrite of her actions. WW informs CR of WH’s upcoming wedding to BW, she has accepted that as well. A finally contrite CR finally sincerely apologizes to BW for all her actions in a letter, congratulating BW, she asks that BW forgive YS and why she should. BW read the letter saying something is strange with it. It seems that CR got transferred to a ward due to her health (I think) her sentence is stated in the voice over, it appears that she did not get maximum punishment but a few years to serve. It’s the wedding process time where staff wishes WH well happy for his marriage and happy return to work, happy time for BW at the restaurant. The OTP visits BW’s father in which she found out that YS stopped by. BW has some justifiable serious anger issues regarding YS. WH having a talk with SC informing him that YS is BW’s mother, BW receiving wedding gifts from JY/DM which includes lingerie/couple wear (by the way they have to do something about the lingerie its drab, unsexy & boring as heck especially for 2017). There is happy talk all around. CGJ stops by to visit YS where she inadvertently let him know that YS is very sick. Making the man worried for the first time in his life about his wife, he insists on taking her to the hospital but YS says no to that and locks him out of his room. The night before the wedding, BW slept with moms where they had a loving talk. The next day the OTP gets married at WH’s home, with all happy. YS watches this from afar happy for them, she is very pale and her illness has gotten worse. YS collapses after the OTP said their vows publicly, CGJ saw her collapsed and runs. Show ends Preview – it’s all about YS illness and BW coming to terms with her anger issues regarding her. SC informs BW’s family that YS is BW’s mother Docs now know the seriousness of YS illness and feels helpless CR is informed of YS’s illness through SC. CR gets upset with this knowledge wanting to save YS WH tries to convince BW to forgive YS but she is not having it. Other – it seems the cop out solution to BW reuniting with YS will be happening. As now that her illness is out in the open and BW is very likely to be the liver donor for the transplant. Therefore in essence YS will not really be fully punished, bummer. Instead they are going for a YS reunion with both CR/BW, remain in marriage to docs and in the end happy. From this possible conclusion, have you noticed that there is no full punishment or justice for the baddies? Just conscience revelation, contriteness and trying to make amends even though its clearly in a way small steps. A typical kdaily. Take care
  7. I had to rewatch the subbed episode twice before commenting here to make sure that I got my facts and opinions correct. I am going to discuss YS, docs and CR to some degree here. Be forewarned - long post YS – She has cirrhosis with over 70% liver damage, the solution a liver transplant. I sincerely hope they do not let BW know about this to provide the liver as a form of resolution for mother & bio daughter. YS needs to pay properly for her sins, as I said in a previous post I would be happy if they have a civil end talk and she disappears from everything. YS dies quietly, she does not tell anyone including CGJ. Docs/CR have never appreciated her for all what she did and as such deserves nothing. They must feel the brunt of her absence to know what they did to a person. I understand after she found about being BW’s mother in trying to make amends but to me it’s a bit late, however I do appreciate what little she could do in her last moments such as telling OHW about DJ being the donor of WH’s heart and as such ending the viciousness from OHW. I doubt if any viewer here believes that YS should be 100% excused or not pay for her actions even if she is now trying to make some sort of amends to BW. She can be somewhat forgiven that I support but I do not want it solved using a liver transplant, no matter how you dress it up it is still a cop out/fall solution. Docs – there a lot of scenes that shows the true mindset of this man, most of which we are aware of. However to me there were two profound ones in the early part that defines this person (i) blaming YS for not informing him, the cover up and stating what he would have done which frankly is a huge lie with the audacity of demanding her to beg BW to petition for CR in reducing her sentence etc. a woman who is as far as he is concerned is very below in terms of quality in comparison to his precious CR (ii) “What’s more important than CR?”. This man does not believe that his daughter did wrong, is denying responsibility and is hugely delusional. He is a hypocrite when he visited BW & her family claiming to be a bad parent etc. because in essence he does not believe he is, it’s YS who is the bad parent. This is just a tool to get CR off the hook and subdue them/pay them off into believing that he is sincere in being contrite as well as CR. Then to make matters a bit funny he had a look of hurt/betrayal when BW tells him that she would write a petition that CR is punished for her crimes and why. Because as far as he is concerned CR in spite of everything should not be punished/suffer the consequences. As a doctor the true signs of the mental state of CR has always been there but because (i) their personalities are very similar (ii) he has a certain tunnel image where CR is concerned as a parent he chose to ignore them and left all of it to YS. So when things go wrong as it is now, YS is to claim all responsibility while he denies any of himself. When you think about it, docs has done nothing except in an indirect manner cover up for CR. Yes his speciality is of the heart but one of his roles as a doctor is to assess the mental state of his patient to determine how/if they are responding to treatment or should they get treatment apart from that of a physical one. I understood that CR was seeing the psychiatrist to deal with the memory loss, however from watching WH’s report I wonder if the doctor had diagnose something else in regards to CR’s true mental state like “she is mad/psychotic!!!”. What was the medication for/ was it a placebo? Considering that she attempted suicide at least that should have been part of her treatment. Was the psychiatrist doing his/her job as a psychiatrist? I find it strange that WH was the one who consulted the doctor/psychiatrist and not docs/YS when this matter concerns CR’s mental wellbeing and she is the “most important” person to them. How it is that WH was able to get this information when he is not family? WH consulted the doctor to confirm what he suspected and to use as supporting evidence against CR in court when the time comes. I really felt angry on a whole where docs was concerned with his behaviour regarding CR and YS. As such I will not feel sorry for him when he is left completely alone. I also want WH to change doctors here because of the connection to both docs/CR, it is just wrong on many levels. CR – I stated in a previous post that CR is one who denies responsibility/lies until 1100% of the evidence is shown that she is the culprit and as such is forced to “confess”. However, despite said confession there is always a CR like justifiable excuse as to why she did it and those actions are reasonable. As such since they are reasonable excuses CR should never ever take responsibility or be accountable for them. As a matter of fact the victim or the person in question should forgive her and let her be plus in the case of WH embrace/love only her. Even though CR has confessed, in her discussion with YS she feels betrayed by her for “choosing BW” as well as believe that YS should have taken the blame for her actions and pay for her sins. The thing about it is in a sad unconscious manner so does docs believe that YS should do that as well. CR still believes that she should be released/rewarded for her actions and go on as if nothing ever happened. CR’s attitude in prison/cell will not wash with the other inmates as she believe that she is much better than them hence her condescending/superiority complex when “talking” with them. She is of the belief that since she is superior they must prostrate to her as she is in all manner of the highest quality. Hence she is getting some humbling lessons though its highly doubtful that she will remain humble or face up to any sort of reality where her existing life is concerned. The reason CR is blameless, perfect and faultless. It seems she has completely forgotten her self defense lessons and no longer knows how to fight. I want CR to get the maximum sentence for her crime/s, if they add on the tumbler poisoning case all the better to lengthen the terms. From watching the scenes so far we are aware that she is losing it/has lost it so the chance of her being sent to a mental institution is strong. I also want WK/OHW to be fully informed as to the real CR in terms of sins to give both of them more so OHW a reality check. Other – Most of you have mentioned the bad acting of the actress who plays CR, I agree she is bad. She is popular because of it with the responses from her "fans" and as such is currently being typecast in similar roles from which I understand in this daily is the biggest one for her. Since its the last daily for SBS it may be possible for her to get an nominated for the show when the time comes. However I want to add another person to the list in this show; the actress who played JY though her role was viewed as minor I could never believe in the character’s portrayal of a Korean American who married a Korean. Her common English expressions were horrendous to say the least. I did not like her at all. According to previous episodes WK is pregnant by now at approx. 4 months, they were showing the character going through the early pregnant phases, eating, gaining weight etc. which have stopped once the declaration was made. Have you noticed all of a sudden WK does not seem to be pregnant through her “continuation of pregnancy actions” or physically with how she dresses (small clothes with heels) and her body frame which is completely FLAT? This just put a lie to the public claim that she is pregnant and the child is growing there is no indication of baby growth seen. It’s like they have forgotten to back up the pregnancy physical/related activity part along with the words. of late I have noted a slight change in OHW’s wardrobe – black with hints of white and red these colors were shown from last to this week episodes, wonder what is the reason for that? I did not like how they resolve the “divorce” between JY/DM as there is a huge problem with this couple and it was in a way brushed aside and not in any way addressed in a realistic manner. Their “divorce” was a joke/mockery to us. I really would have preferred them not living in that house but of course moms is not having it so the problems with exception to the baby pressure still remains the same. Gone for now
  8. Countdown to the ending = 3 left It’s good for the good guys Ep 117 recap CR gets arrested at the airport for the hit and run case which she loudly denies being responsible for. CR is brought to the police station in hysterical mode, docs/WW want to know what’s happening, YS is silent. CR is in interrogation and is still lying despite the proof being shown that she is guilty which includes the blackmailer. OTP arrives BW scolds YS for what she did in helping CR, YS admitted not knowing it was Jang Ho, BW told her that even if she died she will not forgive her. WH hearing those words from BW took her out of the station, they talk a bit about YS being her mother etc. They visited SC and inform him that he is to be released based on the evidence that proves CR is the culprit. WH’s family is informed of the latest happening regarding CR as well as the fact that YS is BW’s real mother which has WK/OHW surprised. Later CGJ gives OHW the update as to relationship between BW/YS which has her thinking. Docs scold YS for her hand in helping CR cover up the crime, she stated her reasons. Docs demands from YS that she must beg BW a favor in order to help CR but she says no, he is insistent. After he leaves, YS takes a rest she coughs blood. SC is released and returns home to a happy celebration. All are smiling, eating etc. The next day, docs visited CR and talks to her about the case using the amnesia as an alibi but CR admits to docs that she was faking the memory loss. This shocks docs and it was overheard by WK/WH, WH stated that he knew and how he found out. CR states her reasons as to why she did it etc. WH looks at her with disgust, he came closer to her and said something else. CR screams WH as WK/WH leaves with WH being angry and docs in shock not knowing who his daughter was as a person. WK tries to appease WH, she tells him that she finally understood what he meant about hating/despising CR. SC returns to work happily when BW receives a call from OHW who tries to convince her to return to WH. They had a somewhat pleasant talk with OHW leaving. SC also visited WH, they are talking like true friends, it was a happy one. YS is informed of her illness, her time is short and she should inform the family. CGJ stops by the salon, YS asks her a favour for her to see BW but CGJ says no, she scolds YS for her actions etc and leaves. YS gets philosophical in thought as to her fate throwing the pills as the cirrhosis/pain is getting worse that she could not take them. Docs visited BW and her family regarding CR, requesting her help but BW says no to that and that CR must take responsibility for her actions. BW looks at her father’s picture and tells him that she kept her promise to find the criminal etc. Docs/YS later visited CR in prison who demands to be released and saying that she is having a hard time, showing a tiny bruise. Docs says that it is going to be difficult as there is a lot of evidence against her, YS tries to appease CR but is rejected. It’s WH’s last day at the office which is confirmed by BW after speaking to him, she got off the elevator debating on what to do when he told her that it was up to her whether he stays or goes. BW wishes him a safe trip, elevator closes. BW told SC the real reason why she is rejecting WH and that she is very afraid especially with the loss of the men in her lives. It seems that SC tells her to take that chance all the same. WH is leaving for the airport, with SC driving the talk is casual. SC took him somewhere saying that they are making a stop. It’s a special place for the OTP, SC went for coffee and WH reminisces as to the last time he was there with BW. He hears BW’s voice asking if he wants the coffee, BW proposes to WH which he accepts OTP hugs. Show ends. Preview OTP visits moms and pops BW’s family visits WH’s family its now official CR is in prison, she is bragging about not being an ordinary person & being BH group future DIL (not happening, ever). CR is going Crazy and gets beaten up by fellow prisoners BW goes by YS returning something and saying some angry words to her Other – BW decides to take another chance to be with WH now that all is clear for them to move forward. This is understandable. OHW though surprised at finding out about CR being the culprit seems to be reacting very calmly and there is no way she will be visiting CR because that would affect her image as well as BH Group as to the association link which we all know is important to her. It seems that she will never get the full information as to CR’s crimes but I think now that she is relieved that they have escaped this one. Take care
  9. Thanks @awsparkle. I think its safe to say that most of us were looking forward to the ending this week, no carry forwards, but because its the nation's football and they have nothing else to bring the "fans" the following week that's why they are doing this. Don't they realize that we are VERY VERY TIRED, in a way more so than the cast who already finish and some are getting their rest. We need ours, I was looking forward to this only to be thwarted by football, especially when we have a public holiday. I could get up do the streaming and recaps and go back to bed, now they disappoint me. Couldn't this be held on the weekend? @catx Although I agree with most of your points there are a few I sort of disagree with and here is why. YS - I do not think she is completely evil but I do agree that she is wrong for facilitating and supporting CR's evil behavior as well as assisting in spoiling docs in creating a good image of CR. YS's main issue was trying to do whatever it takes to please both CR & docs who are extremely selfish, jealous, egotistical, delusional, obsessive, manipulative people as well as thinking that she could be a real mother as a make up for her sin of the past. She never felt adequate as a person and thought by doing whatever it takes she will gain their favor/sincere love as well as protect herself by not revealing her past. Hence the lies to make herself look good as she fears being abandoned herself, not that I support her lying either, its just wrong and in this case she was a good teacher in CR doing the same to their benefit only not realizing how bad it makes them look in the future especially to those who "trusts" them, hence docs issue with YS. Do you think that if YS told docs her true concerns about CR that he would be helpful/supportive? I do not think so per se; plus considering the fact she wanted to be close to CR as her mother it would be a viewed as huge breach of trust by CR hence worsening an already tentative, tumultuous relationship. I stated in a previous post that I do not think that docs truly loved YS as what he wanted was someone who could & would fully cater to all his/CR needs, as well as be obsessively loyal to them. YS fulfill the bill and in a strange way she loved them. Docs cares more about face value and image than problems related to CR, look at the past episodes when CR was "dating" WH. How did he react, it actually pleased him that his daughter could be the future DIL of a huge prestigious company, its an upgrade in his social class etc. I really think that YS's tears were sincere after finding out about BW being her daughter not only because of BW but more so due to Jang Ho the father, the man who CR killed. YS left them for a "better life" but what was her end result, 2 exhausting persons who drains her continuously in trying to please/meet/exceed their expectations. When you think about it docs/CR were never satisfied with YS no matter what she said or did. YS was full of regrets for her life but at the same time in her own way loved CR in wanting to protect her no matter what. Do you think that YS is happy? YS has been CR aide,controller and back up to lot of the sins committed by them. Does she deserve jail time? Yes but with what evidence as CR can always talk but there is nothing per se that can put YS in prison for a good period as her sins lie towards paying for blackmail and perjury. I do agree that this illness for YS i.e. cirrhosis - liver disease is a cop out being used to reunite her and BW as a way for them to be mother and daughter especially with CGJ as a go between who has come a long way from being leech. I am not interested in any organ donation between YS/BW just a civil end talk between them and YS disappearing afterwards without anyone's knowledge of her illness. OHW - I completely agree with your comments regarding her. I will never be satisfied with her trying to make amends just because she finds out the donor is the husband of the woman her son loves and had abused/bully her just for existing. If I remember correctly in a previous post/interview it appears that the writer was stressing on the importance of family, forgiveness etc. However our view of family and their cultural view of family and forgiveness is completely different from ours, hence one of our main problems with Kdramas and dailies is how they mete out proper justice and punishment to the ones who deserves it most. They strongly believe in karma and forgiveness. YS's karma is the knowledge that she committed and said a lot of bad things to her real daughter who she abandoned as a baby for a daughter who in her unique way controlled her and was responsible for the death of her first love who was a good man. A daughter who expects complete loyalty no matter what she did because YS is the fault/fall person here. The other karma is now finding out that she is dying, my personal preference would be after the CR situation to leave and die silently with a good bye letter to docs and BW's end talk. OHW's karma is the fact that she almost lost her son again all due to her greed and the knowledge of what she did to her son's lifesavers because of her prejudices and blind/small mind to others who did not meet her "high" criteria/defined standards, it was even noted in today's episode when she said that she never visited the staff room of the employees at the restaurant that shows how poor an employer & in a way small minded person that she is. End my response to those comments here. CR - She blames YS for allowing her not to confess of her sins of the past. In this area I disagree, YS may have convinced her but the final decision was CR. The moment CR realized what she had done was the instant she made a decision to escape by running away from the scene of the crime. She just wanted YS to cover for her and knowing how much YS was willing to ensure that she is protected she used that. CR is an adult with the ability to make decisions, she did not need YS's or her father's consent to do the right thing she knew that she should but chose not to, she later tried to cover it up and frame an ex in the future. A ex who sincerely cared for her in the past with the hope that she was a nice person but was proven not to be as he did not agree nor cater to her wishes especially when he sort of sided with YS who was trying her utmost best to be on good terms with her at that time = break up. CR also chose to lie by denying responsibility she believes that she can live with a "clean" conscience, however with YS's tutelage her lying skills increased 1000% over the years as a way to get the result she wants. CR ignored the significance of the minor interview by the detective not being aware that she trapped herself in the future to be prosecuted as to her statement regarding SC and her subsequent actions that night. As the evidence was being collected against her which corroborates SC's statement on her destroying the "final evidence" & being the culprit. In addition, she is not aware that WH is a witness to that night's confession. From my observation CR only confesses when cornered with all facts/evidence against her - the tumbler case, SC's picture proof and the night she "slept" with WH at the hotel for SC to know hence contributing to the ruining of SC/WH's relationship. Done talk, gone for now.
  10. Its definitely not docs, however the name of the organ donor is an open secret now, it would not surprise me if his family told him or he heard BW through her pleas for him to wake up as she did mention DJ to him while unconscious. In terms of breach of ethics, the question is - is docs in violation of it after the known fact was discussed in the family when CR revealed that she knows that DJ is the donor and how it occurred with her finding out. In addition, OHW confirmed after she got the information from YS with his silent response to her query and then they started talking about it. Its an answer I am not sure can be given as docs did not directly reveal to the patient or his family as to the name of the donor or that of the donor's family. However in the confines of his family it was discussed a bit. BW did do this i.e. slap CR; when CR mixed up the ingredients for her test when she knew that BW had lost her sense of taste, however it was a tit for tat as CR slapped her back saying that BW should leave because she was clinging on to WH and hurting the company etc. The reason why CR hasn't pieced together that others know that she is faking it is because she is arrogant and delusional, plus at an earlier episode she had put in a caveat to WK that she is on the road to recovery, so for her to start remembering bits & pieces appears to be fine. CR thinking the world is in her favor has become too comfortable & confident as such she went back to her "real" self once SC was being framed for the crime so she start making mistakes that people do not call her out on, they just listened and noted.
  11. Countdown to the ending = 4 left Our wish has been granted the internet came Sunday night. I can recap again, still crossing fingers and toes that makes it stay that way for the rest of this week including Saturday as I may have to write final thoughts on the daily. Thanks @eurakafor offering to help out its very much appreciated CR’s noose gets formed. It’s the start of good news for the good guys. Ep 116 recap WH wakes up after hearing BW’s pleas for him to do so, he touches her face calling her name. BW thanks him for waking up, she goes to inform everyone but WH stops her saying that he wants it to be just them for a bit. CR returns with juice wondering where BW was but they said nothing. The doctor is called in and they rush to see that WH is okay. Meanwhile SC is talking to the lawyer about the case and his chances. WH tells his mom that he wants to contact his lawyer but they are saying it’s too soon etc. WH gives CR a somewhat nasty look and says something to her which seems strange to others hearing it. CR answers a call from the detective who asks why was she in SC’s car that night she tells a lie which the detective accepts at face value. YS is visited by CGJ who commented that she does not look good, YS accepts that and goes home feeling weak while docs is about to start defending CR and cursing YS who just went with the flow. BW informs the family the good news about WH’s health which has them happy, BY says he misses him. WH goes to see BW saying that he does not believe that its over for them and that he loves her in spite of being the one with DJ’s heart. But BW rejects him all the same, she tells herself not to be too greedy and be satisfied with having him alive, BW is justifiably afraid after being hurt. WH goes to his car and pulls out the rings he remembers BW's true reactions to him. WH visits SC telling him he is aware of his innocence and that things are being prepared to sort out with the lawyer. He asks SC about the tumbler issue confirming that CR was the culprit which of course gets SC a bit angry. WH also had a happy greeting with moms/pops after visiting them. OHW tells CR that she does not think its wise that she goes to US with WH and she states her reasons why it mostly had to do with WH’s wishes. An angry CR visits YS blaming her for telling OHW about WH’s heart transplant etc. At the time the blackmailer had a brief visit with YS saying that the police are closing on him etc. YS tries to appease him somewhat. YS still advise CR to go to the US alone but she says no as that means WH would be with BW which as far as she is concerned is not happening etc. WH calls BW/CR to his office about the tumbler case asking questions and more or less confirming that CR was the one responsible. CR denies it, coming up with excuses as to how she knew some key information but BW nor he accepts that BW gave CR 2 good slaps, stating what they were for; a humiliated CR runs out of the room. WH asks if there was something else that he did not know about, CR cries in the lab. CR goes to YS for comfort, telling her what happened etc. WH/BW walked and talked a bit before BW leaves in the elevator, WH watches her while the door was being closed this was seen by OHW. Later OHW talks to WH telling him it’s okay for him to be with BW as he has her blessing but WH says that BW is not accepting him. JY/DM are not getting a divorce, this they later inform the family who are happy for them. OHW goes to visit BW at the restaurant, she tells her that it’s now okay for her to be with WH and that she will not block them. But BW says no to that and why, OHW realizes that she has done much damage to BW. The security footage shows CR destroying the evidence along with YS who was watching her. This was seen by the detective, WH and the lawyer which supports WH’s statement as to what happened that night. The detective/lawyer praise BW for her efforts in getting the footage. CR’s noose ready. YS bought tickets for CR to leave the country. The next day CR gets ready for work, like nothing happen. She is prepared to get WH to forgive her in some way, YS tries to talk her out of it but no luck. So to make things easier YS offers to drive CR to work which she accepts which is seen by docs. The detective is at work waiting for CR but she is not there, WH tries calling CR who responds to the call but the phone thrown out by YS who tells her that they are leaving the country. The detective makes a call for CR’s arrest, YS/ a sullen CR are at the airport waiting for the flight, the police arrive and arrests CR which makes her go crazy saying it’s not her etc. Show ends Preview SC returns to a happy home BW is still rejecting WH CR is in prison garb being visited by docs/YS telling them to get her out of there It seems that YS is very sick Other – all I can say for now is “yayyyy the internet is back”. BW’s fears are justified and it’s going to be interesting as to who/what is going to convince her to be with WH. Surprisingly I think it’s going to be moms/pops and SC that do so (if they bring in ghost DJ & her father that would be better instead of the live ones). I am so looking forward to OHW’s reactions once the truths about CR comes out. Take care
  12. I enjoyed this saguek from episode 1 to 30, every bit of it was not boring and most of it made sense. Granted it was not perfect but I am happy to see all of the good guys living fulfilling lives in the end with some hard lessons given to the bad ones. Some did not learn but I am okay with that because in the future the Hong Chum Ji were there to ensure that it gets taught by them. The interesting thought occurred to me was Eorini and Ok Ran, they are going to have a very hard time getting husbands because its the Hong clan who are looking out for them very closely especially when its Gil Dong & Mori. Can you imagine those girls trying to introduce someone they like to them, poor guys. When you think about it everyone is at a marriageable age. I think Yongae finally got over his fear of women and got married as we saw that lady that he was interested in there around them. Although they did not show that part I hope by then most of the men are no longer bachelors excluding II Chung. What I also found interesting was listening to the Hongs in the end talking about the political climate of the country as they have kept in touch with the happenings of the nation and will intervene when they think its necessary. There are no plans to retire as they are the watchers of the interest of the people of the nation. Thanks for watching this show with me, I enjoyed all aspects of it - reading fellow fans comments, reading the recaps, going through the fan motions of watching a good show.
  13. Hello fellow viewers, Hope all is well with you, I am at an internet café to give you the not so good news regarding the internet issue as earlier stated. Its still not up and my internet service provider says no one will be available until next Tuesday (public holiday) to address the issue, tried getting an earlier date no luck. It appears I am not the only one, we had rain this week and it was a bit bad so as a result a lot of people and most of the stuff cable etc. related to it got somewhat affected. Believe me when I say that I checked other options, the best one is actually one of the worst as it gives slow a new name there is no way I could live stream plus give recaps. I am hoping against hope that this is resolved earlier preferably this weekend. However, if not the chance of you seeing a recap from me will be by Wednesday. I have downloaded the subbed episode but I have not watched it, from the clips even watching OHW's transformation I am still not satisfied with her trying to make a resolution. She chose face value/ prejudices over depth of a person's sincere character (BW) and its only when she finds out that the person who actually saved/is saving her son is the one who she has been abusing/bullying in the first place, then she change. Please!!!! give me a break., I am not letting her off. It appears that next week will have the revelation of CR's sins to the world/ destruction of it (yippee we have waited so long for this) and to some degree YS. I think in a previous post I mentioned that YS plans to disappear after all this, it seems that the signs are already there as she cannot come to terms with what she has done. Docs is in for some serious revelations about his Virtuous Virginal CR and Evil wife. Looking forward to see what he will do. Take care everyone. have a good weekend and lets hope that the internet returns before Monday.
  14. First up, thanks for the shout out, kudos and medals, I am happy to receive them. Second, apologies as I could not give today's recap as I could not watch it. Reason, I woke up to no internet access at home, called the Internet service provider and by the time I left home which was approximately two hours later there was still no internet. Therefore for those who manage to watch it live and maybe raw thanks for pinch hitting in there for me and help. Hopefully the internet returns later today, one thing I have come to realize is that we a highly dependent on it. Technology is a great thing but at the same time it can lead towards bad habits. This was not the case for me today, I just felt a bit disappointed unable to fulfill my promise to you. Hopefully considering that its the last week there will be no issues. Right now I am at work, so this has to brief. Take care and have a good weekend
  15. Countdown to the ending = 6 left Ep 114 recap The heart transplant story begins, there is going to be a transformation of OHW (too late, no excuse) A stupid SC shows CR his evidence which is a phone picture of them with the necklace making her pause. CR goes with the fake I am sorry act with SC, since it doesn’t work she goes back to her true self which includes the confession that she did it. While driving, WH realizes that CR left the prescription behind and goes back, he overheard the entire conversation naming CR as the killer. SC shows CR the recording which has her panicking trying to get the evidence. The tape gets thrown out of SC’s hand, WH in trying to get it gets hit by a car (we are not sure if he has the tape with him). SC applies immediate first aid. BW,JY, Moms and BY are having a time at the sauna, during this time pops and DM talk about DJ. They talk about the DJ’s organ donation which was overheard by the ladies. It’s a tearful talk with all trying to come to terms with it. SC, CR are at the hospital while WH is in surgery, the family getting the news arrives wanting to know what is happening. The detective arrests SC for the hit and run, SC mentioned what he did but the evidence has gone as CR returned to the accident scene finding both phone and tape destroying them. CR looks gleefully crazy while doing this sure now that she will escape this hurdle which has YS very concerned & worried. SC is now in jail. The next morning it appears that WH’s surgery is a success and he is resting. BW is informed of SC’s arrest she and pops go to meet him, they are informed about WH which has BW in a panic mode, she goes to the hospital. After seeing WH resting OHW/WK leaves the room, BW arrives, OHW pushes BW saying some hateful words to her this was seen by YS. BW leaves crying which was also seen by YS. YS is at the salon in deep thought, JY asks for time off giving her information as to what is happening to BW and the family. YS returns home in tears in her room feeling sorry for BW and her life. BW later went by the hospital to see WH which was seen by WK as BW hid. BW is informed of WH’s status by CGJ, she thanks her for her help. As pops arrived BW talked a bit about SC, she receives a call from WK telling her it’s okay to come by the hospital. Both pops and BW, went to see WH, WK is introduced to pops who lets them in. BW holds his hand mentally apologising to him etc. As pops was out of the room he is met by docs, pops introduces BW to docs as DJ’s wife which has him surprised. OHW is met by YS who says she wants to let her know something that is the donor of WH’s heart was BW’s husband. Show ends. Preview – all focus on the heart transplant story. BW confirming that WH is the recipient of it and docs letting CR know that she is not going to US. Other – Did WH get the evidence to prove that CR is the criminal? Even if he did not, would being a witness help as he overheard just about everything and he was shocked but had sense enough to go after the tape. As for OHW even with this new information about BW to all of us it’s no excuse and too late there is no justification for treating someone with such hate all because she had the courage to love your son and her background etc. does not suit your requirements which we know is a load of BS. Take care
