I am glad the writer didn't drag the identity of Leech  I never thought it would turn out this way and for the record,  I think it is time I have to stop calling her leech

@chasen8888 Thanks again for the recap!!Lips-1.gif~c200

 @cattx I agree with you that this daily-drama is quite different from the usual ones. Our OTP has remained a couple for a long time, suffered a lot together but they never wavered for one moment. CR might be on the winning side again (which really upsets me a lot!), but like I wrote before, all these tricks are just Pyrrhos-victories because she is helping the OTP to get closer and closer together. Each hardship they face, they try to help each other. In the end, CR might be in the spotlight, but she has entirely disappeared from WH's world and view. He doesn't even bother to watch her appearance on TV. 

Finally, I would like to add that this drama is quite well written because it keeps surprising us. Some users had predicted an engagement between CR and WH but so far, it hasn't happened yet and I don't believe that the writer has the intention to use that typical k-ingredient. Then, we thought that CGJ would lie to EBW and act as if she was EBW's mother and we were proven wrong. So in the next episode, CGJ will learn the truth about EJH: her dear friend died in a hit-and-run. She will definitely be upset. The way she looked at EBW was really telling. CGJ kept mentioning EJH to YS in order to frighten her, but wait until she hears about his death... CGJ will be shocked to hear that EBW is YS's daughter and her biological mother is hurting her own daughter!! CGJ won't sit still!

@bebebisous33 you are right the writer surprises us in every turn we thought MIL will take YB away from BW instead she accept her like a daughter and have a beautiful relationship we have 41 episode to go on I don't think OTP will break up they pass the biggest obstacle that is OHW CR trick as you said only keep OTP even closer now it is time to expose CR and YS crime when is the ex coming back I have never missed a character as i missed him

 On a side note, there is no comparison, between Kdramas and US shows, they are apples and oranges. When one considers and compares US soap operas to Kdramas; Kdramscome on top and are 100% better mostly because the quality of acting, the plots are interesting, and diverse. Add to that, that Kdramas have term limits: 16 eps, 20 eps,50 eps, 100+ eps. On the other hand, US 'dramas aka soaps' never end, that is until they are 'dropped.' US TV programming is now dominated by 'reality' shows that are as 'real' is their soap operas. Kdramas are not 'reality' they are dramas for entertainment purposes, and we've all watched enough to know that the plots can be as funny, crazy, unbelievable, believable, dumb, maddening, memorable.......and that is why they have us Kdrama fans coming back for more.

 

I see that you are comparing US-soaps and KDramas which are apples and oranges.  The dramas in the US are different since they go by seasons and the funding happens in stages.  I am unaware of the funding of Kdramas either it is done ahead of time or not.  But having a 20 or 50  or 120 episodes are usually done when the entire script is written and there is not much deviation from the drama.  Most US dramas that are aired are more light hearted and not family related in the Kdrama sense .  I agree with you about the reality TV's these days and hope there are more good dramas to watch.  The more Kdramas edge towards reality, fun and light heartedness, the more people will glue on to these shows.  I do like the OTP sticking together and solving one issue after another and dealing it with fast paced attitude. Normal human behavior.  I don't like CR's sticking it to the OTP repeatedly and someone needs to put their foot down and make her face reality.  Can you imagine having a step child like CR who would come home and tell her mother how she poisoned her colleague and even though you reprimand her by telling her not to do that, I would be scared richard simmons and would either move out of the house, or call the police and ask for help, or call the hospital and ask for their assistance.  It is scary.  How can a dish detergent contain alkali?  Doc, YS, and even SC will have to take some blame for what CR is doing.  It is ludicrous that it is going on for so long.

I am so glad WH pushes hard for BW to get the DNA test done and he made a place to meet BW and CGJ.  It looks like CGJ and BW will know about the BW's father and CGJ's relationship.  However, I don't think CGJ will yet to tell BW about YS. I don't think CGJ wants to keep it as a secret for her gain, but I think she may think it is not the right time to tell BW about YS.   When I saw BW's face with disappointment when she heard CGJ telling her she never had a child. At least, we know BW now know the truth, BW won't think badly about CGJ telling BW that she never had a child. Because it is the truth.  I hope CGJ gets a close relationship with BW and WH. 

OHW will so regret and ashamed how she behaved later on.  But the typical people won't be able to forgive and forget so easily, however, I am sure BW will be so grateful that OHW finally comes around,  she won't keep OHW's cruelty to her in the past against her.  OHW is one lucky woman to have someone like BW.  OHW just don't know that yet, but she would know that in the end.

When I post the comparison between Kdramas and the US dramas, it is not meant to compare the story from the crime drama vs melodrama or the soap running in the USA vs 120 episodes of Kdrama. 

My pet peeve is, Kdrama comes up with how certain things/event happening in the story is so unrealistic and mindboggling.

To examples a few:

In Kdrama, they come up with most unusual illness, not curable and it is so rare that only a just handful of people has this disease in the word wide and none found in the Asian nation. Yet, Kdrama has no qualms about labeling such an illness to a child and a child gets cured. 

Like this drama about the chemical drink issue. If water wasn’t the source of the chemical drink and it was already in the tumbler, the police should get on their feet and investigate what the chemical is, where the chemical is usually used, among all employees who will have the access to those, where they have been right before the drink incident, etc.  Dig in more! Eliminating the person one by one will get to the right person. That’s the job of the investigator.  But so far, we don’t know the investigation is still going on. As far as we (viewers) know, the investigation has not moved on to the next level and it seems Kdrama doesn’t take harming someone physically seriously.  If the investigation is still going on, they need to show that, so that the viewers are aware of it. That is how good story should be written.  Satisfy the viewers by letting us see glimpse of any indication that the investigation is still going on, so there is no question about it.  Maybe it is the reality in Korea and maybe this is the norm in Korea. But it’s certainly not normal in the US in the real-life scenario or in USdrama settings. That is why when PD’s start making the show/drama, they consult real life ‘experts’ in the field.

Another thing I see often in Kdrama is when someone is listening in other’s conversation, they are almost in the same room, so close to the person who is talking, but he/she doesn’t even notice that some were in the same room almost next to him/her. We see this all the time.  At first, I thought all Kdrama has recorded in the settings like a Broadway show in the US,  in front of the live audience.  But, I know it wasn’t. It was pre-recorded ahead of the time it’s aired.   How ridiculous is it that someone eavesdropping was in the same room and no one sees them.  But I learned to accept this is how Kdrama is done because this is the technical and it can be overlooked.

If the writers/pds just take little more time research to make the story more believable and editing the show before it's aired, it would make much better daily drama overall.  Also, they need to sit in the chair as they are the audience/viewer of their own drama and see how they feel about it. They wouldn't like to wait for 6 months only to see the resolutions in the end either.  They will be so exhausted by the time they finished watching their own drama, they couldn't write the next drama for a long while.  Why do you think most of the people avoid watching Daily Kdrama? We are living in the fast paced world.  We expect and love instant gratification and 120 days is a long time to wait.

All the comparison between Kdrama and the US drama aside, what I want to see is the balance between the bad and the good.  At least rotation of the reward and the punishment.  I hate to see the baddies doing the bad deed episodes after episodes and the same time, good guys getting deeper and deeper in the dungeon.  Then, certainly the last few episode left, tables turn and every person who did the crime gets exposed and they ended up in jail or mental hospital. Then, the drama is over!  And I think Kdrama’s screenwriters and PDs needs to change the pace and to spread out the story more evenly to satisfied its viewers. We invest emotions, time and energy for 6 months.  120 episodes are a long time for viewers/fans to wait only to see the baddies gets its punishment at the last few episode.

These are my qualms too and I would like to see changes done to the writing, production / pre production , and airing of the show.  I cannot consider this a USsoap  since it is not even though it might be aired during daytime in SK.

 I don't care of the no. of episodes either.  I watched Scarlet Heart and would have loved more episodes only for  more elegant storyline, production and editing of that historical drama.  It was only 20 episodes vs. its chinese counterpart.  They crushed the storyline so much it was awful.  I fell in love with LJK acting and even IU.  A great pair who acted in that.  Similarly, the storyline is pretty good, but I want the baddies to be hurt and hit on their head as soon as the ego just tries to leave the top of their head.  That would be balance for me.  

Eavesdropping and the person there does not see them.  Even in a very heated conversation, people have peripheral vision which they can see when someone comes into a room even if they are not actually looking at the door.  And what's with this coffee room where there is a set of people sitting there all the time discussing and other conversation is going on in just a few feet.  Have never seen that in US shows.

 

I watched 'Blow Breeze ' from like 48 episode since it was coming on TV and then watched it online and I hated how the evil characters were trying to make sure the lead lady would not find her biological family and the evil b***h would not stop till the last but 2 episodes.  They rushed all the remaining good and bad stuff into 2 episodes.  Just like Scarlet Heart Ryeo, they rushed everything.  (which was a pre production drama; writer of the book - chinese origin ; chinese TV - purchased the program or something of the kind, they still could have made it a better ).

Thank you for your post.
