  1. Sorry to edit down your quote, but I loved Designing Women (Daring Women). Lee Yoo-Ri rocked in that role! But you're right, the actor JB's (Lee Joong-Moon) character also falls for the manipulative, lying, scheming, and greedy woman (the main lead's former sister-in-law and ends up becoming her mother-in-law). JB is every bit of the selfish, petty, greedy but weak and very lazy person as @UnniSarah described. However, there has got to be some form of intelligence there. I mean, really, how obsessed can he be over HK not to see that 1) HK in actuality does not love him (she only loves herself probably); 2) HK is using him to get to her goal; 3) Once goal is met, she'll probably drop him like a sack of potatoes; 4) HK is truly a despicable person who is capable of murder (she tried to run down WJ & her mom and freely admit to it). If JB is not redeemed nor has a happy ending, I'm perfectly fine with it. He doesn't deserve it. DB, for being so righteous about injustice, etc is really one naive and stupid guy. Stupid in the sense that he allows people to manipulate him, plus the blinders he has on must be super thick!!! I understand that he loves his adopted family, who raised over the last 30 years, but dude, they gave up on you the minute they sent JB to live as the fake grandson. They never wanted you to know who you really were. In fact, they tried all they could to ensure JB continued to live as Oh Jae Bin and not Yoon Jae Bin. They didn't care enough about your future or happiness. Now that you found out about your true identity, they want you to keep it a secret and allow JB to live your life instead. They don't have any remorse about it. They don't want anything to happen to JB should the Chairman find out. All they care about is JB (their bio son). They don't care if anything happens to you at all. In fact, they tried to guilt you each and every time about ruining their lives, JB's life and future, etc. But, what about your's? Please, wake up from your stupor!!! HK, nothing more needs to be said about her. She sucks as a character. There's no redeeming qualities in her. She should not have a happy or passable ending. She should not pass go and collect $200!!!!! She needs to go straight to jail or a worse ending for her! Do not redeem her, writer-nim. I know you love to write makjang, but if there's a twist, it better be a twist that's horrible for her!!! We have about 16 eps left. Please start tying up loose ends and start the downfall for HK, her mom, JB, JB's mom, etc. Hate it when writers rush the ending and tries to cram everything in the last 2-3 eps. I want to watch their downfall a little bit in each episode and be truly satisfied at the end.
  2. I'm actually starting to like the chemistry between Seo Jun and So Yu. They are growing on me. SJ is starting to feel/fall for SY. If Ms. Hong does indeed scam SJ's dad out of the company, I'm hoping SJ matures and gets back up stronger with SY's help. But then I read the synopsis, and it looks to be more heartbreak down the line.
  3. #TRUTH Selfish people is selfish people!!! JB's mom sure has some nerve!!! She only cares about what happens to her bio son. She has no care for DB or his happiness. The fact that she had the nerve to ask him to let JB continue living the lie is something else. It's already wrong to begin with!!! You're lying to someone who wanted to find his grandson. His beloved son's son. Although Chairman Oh isn't a great person per say, but still, he was looking for his grandson. You knew from the get go that JB is not even the real grandson but you want him to continue to deceive Chairman Oh so that you and him can continue to live comfortably in luxury! Then JB is beyond stupid. Doesn't a red flag get raised as HK got him going all over the place to try and stop WJ & DB's wedding? Why do you think she wants to stop it?! What in the world does WJ & DB getting married has anything to do with her?! She doesn't want WJ to have DB, you stupid fool!!! Ugh..."Ignorance can be educated, crazy can be medicated, but there's no cure for stupid" (my fave quote) truly applies to this drama!!!!
  4. Practically all daily drama villains blame other people and never themselves for their current predicaments. It is never their fault. Plus, why they're the way they are is because someone else made them like that or force them to become evil. They will never admit to being their fault, their own greed, or choices they made themselves.
  5. Does the main female lead at the end get reincarnated as a baby with the main male lead jumping into the present modern day. Is that the ending?
  6. This drama has up and gone crazy with plot holes upon plot holes. Nothing makes sense anymore. It's as if the writer is just pulling ideas out of thin air and writing them down to see if the audience will like it. Time to take myself out of watching this crap of a story.
  7. I love the OTP, but I'm wondering if they're going a bit fast with the ring if it's a "proposal" ring. However, If it's a couple ring, that's fine. On a side note, the 'prop ring' is a tad too big on HN's finger. Glad Hanna told the truth and admitted to her plagiarizing Leo's design and that it was SH who passed the USB to her. At the very least, JH knows about her sister's shady-ness a bit.
  8. HW is beyond help. Her greed is just too much. Girl got no conscious at all! She wants everything and hates WJ (as she's the real daughter of her adopted dad plus DB loves her too). She wants to take everything away from WJ. She doesn't care that DB told her straight out that he doesn't love her or has any feelings towards her. Heck, he even did his 'proposal' in front of her to make her realize his feelings towards WJ. But does that deter her, NOPE, not one bit! She's still bulldozes right along in her path to get DB, not caring if she hurts him in the process. WJ should just stay away. DB is just too stupid. He tells HW that he has no feelings towards her, yet, HW calls, he goes. If you don't like someone, shouldn't you stay away. HW warned you that she's not giving up and she's desperate to get you. STAY AWAY...or better yet, MOVE OUT!!! Ugh, this daily is just bonkers and making me stupid just watching it. May have it give it up. WJ is also stupid!!! Why are all characters either stupid or just plain crazy!!!
  9. Whoever had Ep 73 as the episode where HG & HN finally kiss, you deserve a cookie!!! I thought we would never get there at the rate the writer was developing HG & HN's relationship. It was just recently that HG realized that he started to like HN and was falling for her more and more each day. HN, for her part, is still confused with her relationship with HG. She just finally woke up and realized that DG is not longer a viable option for her. He's fallen in love with JE and she has reciprocated his feelings. If anything, I truly thought HG & HN would get together probably around Ep 100 with them kissing around the last few episodes. That was how slow they were developing IMO. But, great way to end today's episode!!!

    [Drama 2018] Familiar Wife, 아는 와이프

    This drama reminds me a bit of the 1998 film "Sliding Doors" starring Gwneyth Paltrow in which a simple change in the past affects the future.
  11. I have to admit that majority of kissing done in a daily drama aren't passionate or amazing to begin with. I'm not sure if its because the time it airs (earlier than prime time) or if it's because the entire family watches it as it airs earlier so they keep it as non-sexy as possible. Many OTP's in daily dramas that kisses are very bland. It's like two statues' lips pressed together. Although you have a few couples that does kiss wonderfully so color me surprise when that happens (e.g., the kissing between the OTP in "Happy Sisters" or "Enemies from the Past").
  12. This is what I don't get from the writers. Why is JE having trouble at K1 working with HN? What did HN do to JE that is causing her to have such a hard time functioning?!!! HN did nothing. Just because she's biologically SJ?!!! HN doesn't know that she's SJ. She has no memory. Only JE & her mom knows that HN is SJ, so how his JE having such a hard time. The writer makes no sense whatsoever. Even if SJ did bully JE when they were young, it was such a long time ago. Plus, it wasn't prolonged bullying. Yes, kids can be cruel. It's because majority of them do not understand consequences of their actions or the fact that other people's feelings can be hurt. They can be possessive of their own objects and are selfish. Kids don't know any better. JE harboring the supposed "trauma" of SJ bullying her is soooooooooo f'n stupid. She grew up a bit privileged because her family leeched off her wealthy aunt. She's worried that HN will take away everything from her?! Well, it's not her's to begin with (this plot line reminds me a bit of another daily that just finished last week called "Mysterious Personal Shopper"). Her family leeched off her aunt who was kindhearted. Someone mentioned that in the big house of her aunt, JH & her mom shares a room. SH & husband have one room, JE has a room to herself, and her brother has room by himself too. How does the owner of house end up sharing a room with her parent?!!! JH should have her own room...it's her freaking house!!! SH is also greedy & selfish!!! Why are the villains trying to covet someone else's personal stuff? It's like this plot device keeps popping out every so often in all dailies!
  13. The drama has totally gone the makjang path. JE's path to the dark side was sure fast! She became a calculative manipulator & liar, thief and would-be murderer all within a few episodes! She has no conscience now. All she cares about is getting rid of HN (and quite literally to boot)! She's roped in her mom in helping her achieve that goal. Stupid & naive DG is almost there (whether he knows it or not). He's covering for JE with the stolen blouse. I have no time for him. You can't teach stupid!!! I FF almost every scene with him, JE & SH it seems. We still half more than halfway to go, I wonder how low JE can go! After every horrible thing she is doing to HN, she goes off whining & crying "woe is me" playing the victim card. What victim?! What did HN do to you that requires you to do that? You inadvertently caused her disappearance. Then when you found out HN's true identity, you kept it a secret knowing your aunt was desperately looking for her daughter all these years. It's like she has a split personality. One one hand, she's smiling at HG at work, and then behind his back, is plotting evil deeds towards HN. I'm hoping the writer has her thwarted at every attempt!!! Her mom, SH, has some gall! If JH ever finds out that HN is her daughter and that SH purposely tried to sabotage HN business/career, I hope she lay a big heap of whoop @ss on her!!! SH's descent to the dark side was quick too!!! Next thing you know, both JE & her mom are going to commit physical criminal acts if they don't succeed in getting rid of HN. HN's personality will not allow her to quit and back down. Plus, now that HG is on her side and will try his upmost to support her, JE's attempt will be canceled out. I'm thinking the ratings are going up is because it has jumped the shark and gone full makjang. Korean public seems to love watching makjang daily. They do well in the ratings. Guess it's because it's not boring. But the writer has just thrown her/his own logic out the window and writing nonsense. JE's rationale makes no d@mn sense!!! She goes from being her friend to full out hate just because HN is SJ!!! It's not like SJ bullied JE all her life for JE to develop such hatred for her. SJ went missing over 20 years ago. She became HN with no memory of her past. Her mom brought her up well in a loving family. HN is optimistic and strong. Yet, JE hates her with full passion! She & her mom have some nerves thought. Her family has freeloaded off of JH all these years. They covet what JH has or what she will leave to her daughter should she ever find SJ. JE is so greedy! Since we're only halfway there, I have a feeling I'm going to keep getting pissed off & annoyed with JE for several more weeks!
  14. ZZH was also in another costume drama called "Legend of Banshu" with Jian Ting. He was a teacher in the royal palace with Jian Ting. It's okay. Still like YX better for him though. All eps are on YT. Not too sure if it has been subbed though.
  15. Wow...JE's character sure turned dark quick!!! She went from being a whining, selfish and lying person to now an almost murderer!!! I doubt she'll be able to run over HN (probably brake at the last minute when she comes to her senses), but the fact that she was willing to do so says a lot!!! We still probably have 45 episodes till 100, so JE's descent to the dark side has begun!
