After episode 83:

What's up with these KDramas...

The hated and/or enemies end-up working at the same company. (So better to torture the opponent)

Divorced people still live together. (So better to torture the opponent)

Married people who war with each other don't get divorced.  (So better to torture the opponent)

Husband's mistress moves in/out of the legal wife's house! (So better to torture the opponent) 

Ditched daughter-in-laws remain in the household. (So better to torture the opponent)

Cute couples 'date' for 300 years without marrying. (So better to torture the opponent???) 

EVERY SINGLE STOLEN/LOST/ABANDONED BABY finds its way home. (Korea is a wonderful place & So better to torture the opponent)

Korea needs: 

Doors that LOCK, above all else.  Everyone is waltzing in/out of rooms without knocking, poking through others' possessions, and moving in/out of houses.  This country needs LOCKS.  How do they even keep people confined in jail?  Someone could make a fortune selling reliable door locks in Korea.  Apparently, door locks are either unavailable or non-existent in Korea.  As an added benefit there would be a mass rise in employment statistics for people that can install door locks.  

Psycho-Witch is supposedly rich, WHY WHY WHY endure such treatment for $$$ when one has plenty?  LOVE?  WHY WHY WHY would a beautiful woman with plenty of $$$ love a Man-without-a-Spine (SpineLess)?  Oh, and he is a complete DOLT who would believe any nonsense spouted.  And WHO could comfortably sleep or eat in proximity to Psycho-Witch?  She is like the broke relative that comes to stay, causes trouble, and won't leave.  

Dim-Bulb, (DoYoon's mom) makes dim-bulbs look bright.  What?  You did?  You didn't?  You will?  You won't?  And she has her husband's mistress, second son, and even the Crass-Man himself, parked in her home.  In one scene she's scared, whimpering, and cowering; in the next scene she is shouting orders.  She's...not a badly-drawn character, she's manic!  Yes!  That's the answer to the madness:  MADNESS!  

Do-Yoon, aka SpineLess, is yet another KDrama Hero-without-a-Spine.  Marries a woman he doesn't love and likes it when she lies, cheats, and kicks him.  Tolerates abuse from his parents and father's mistress.  Is incapable of speaking a complete sentence to his mother, Dim-Bulb.  Yeah.  Not a poorly-drawn character but a man-without-a-spine.  It is the only rational answer:  A massive birth defect.  

Aye-yi-yi.  Gotta stop typing.  Time for me to leave for therapy.  I know they are going to tell me to double my meds and stop watching KDramas.  (But that's why I'm in therapy:  I can't stop watching!) 

Welcome Aboard @watchumlots  I was wondering where you were, Never a dull comment from your insight. I got as a good crack up last night thanks to you.. Thanks.. 

Hello All my streaming site wasn't worth a dime this morning so I'll have to rely on you guy's until subs come out.. So Jamg Pleaded the 5th when it came to spilling the beans on MH.. Funny he thinks he got her where he wants her.. So he's really thinking keep paying and I'll keep my mouth shut the moment you stop sending the money I'll sing.. I think they going to try and kill him..

I get to know @USAFarmgirl who is an absolute romantic, @UnniSarah for her colorful emoticons, @stroppyse our translator, @0ly40 faithfully posting previews and OST, @sava2savawho always reply everyone posts, etc ,etc. I find it interesting. 

@rikimaiu  This is the fun part of Kdrama we meet people from all walks of life and find we have serveral things in common but what brought us together is the love for kdrama regardless to how stupid the plots be but we continue to watch because of our virtual family.. If I don't chat with you guy's on a daily basis my day is incomplete..

@sava2sava I, too, wouldn't be able to control my anger if I were in DY's place when MH accuses him of fabricating the video. It took a lot of self control for him not to lose his "COOL". I have been very impressed with Kim Seung Soo's acting (DY), and truly hope he is nominated for a best actor award.

@Mailelei I was first turned on to his actiing from watching Jumong he brought his character so alive in that series.. Since then any time I find out he's in any drama I watch because he's a darn good actore and brings his characters alive.. Loved to see him doing those crying scenes. I wonder what could a person like him be thinking to bring on such tears at time..

Sorry couldn't give any updates here. Live streaming was really bad today it started acting up 10 minutes into the drama. I caught a bit of the crap with Jang/MH and HJ at the police station and I gave up after that. Have to wait for the raw now.

I watched the raw but my non Korean comprehension could not figure out what the angry HJ's voice was saying or the usual MH's lying voice was saying either, so fast forward. 

GO and DY went out to eat with HJ. There did not seem to be much bonding, DY was uncomfortable and so was GO.

The wily old goat found out about HR and JW. MH's mother had convinced him to do something in exchange for his old position. There was a lot of yelling by DY's mum at Chairman Cha ( honorary).

Get out of the house, you shameless old fa*^.  What did you do for them in 30 years?

HR was at JW's office and she spoke to DY. Maybe it will hit the fan again, after DY's father found out about HR.

Main things I remember from the live stream with the help of my usual scribbled notes (but I haven't had time to do more than flip quckly through a raw, so there's a health warning attached...)

MH admits to her father that she's terrified the mess she's gotten into will cause her mother to disown her and throw her out. Her father doesn't contradict her there, but merely says its vital that she solves the Jang problem before it gets worse.

JW tells HJ he's a bit worried about the way MH went on the attack with the message she put out on the company PA system. She seems so confident about refuting the allegations. Maybe she has something up her sleeve they don't know about. HJ counters that she's glad MH laid her own reptation on the line like that. Since there's cast-iron evidence against her, once the recording is certified as genuine either MH will fall foul of the law, or if her family get her off that hook, the publicity will make here a permanent social outcast and even the Directors who are her stooges will be forced to desert her. Either way, GO will be safe from her.

Mme Kim has summoned DY's father. She promises him that if he "solves" the problem of the recording, she will make sure he gets the Chairman's position back. To save MH's face she will have to stay in post a while longer, but after that Mme Kim will use her stockholding to ensure the Directors vote h im back in.

DY, off to meet GO, keeps his mother in the dark and continues to tell her he remembers nothing about the accident. Meanwhile HJ's dimwit mother is making GO uncomfortable by over-grandmothering him and probing what he thinks of DY.

DY's father tells MS they have to "bury" the business of MJ and DY's accident. She furiously refuses, guessing his motives.

There's a silly sequence in which DY is clueless about what to do with GO before HJ shsows up. I would make sense maybe if DY had never had a kid of his (supposed) own, but it's totally daft in that it requires him to have no idea of how to get on with an 8 year old at all. The nonsense is highlighted by the fact that he's made to mention HR in the process of trying to hit on something DO might, suggesting the ski run  "because HR likes it". GO asks who HR is, and whether the ski run really would be fun, but DY cluelessly replies he doesn't know since all he's done is watch people on it (hoping that answer to the second quesion wil make DO forget the first one). But GO says his favorite activity is watching other kids play in the park. At that moment HJ comes to the rescue and asks GO whether he was having fun with DY. "No" says the boy, with a look at her that asks "how could I have fun with that total bore?"

MS has Big Nam on the spot, demanding to know the truth about his brother and the genuineness of the recording. He assures her it's genuine and the MH's responsibility for the accident is beyond doubt.

After sending GO home, DY tells HJ that he wants to delay the divorce for now. There are things he needs to do which can only be done if everyone still thinks he's MH's devoted husband, including collecting evidence that will ruin MH completely. HJ replies that she doesn't mind that, now she's not alone. She's got DO, and that's more than enough to be going on with till DY is able to join them.

JW astonishes HJ by telling her Jang has handed himself in. She gets a call asking her to come to the police station. Hearing the same news Mme Kim orders MH to go the police of her own accord and do whatever it takes to stop Jang from implicating her. But no sooner has Mme Kim said that than the police call to summon her for questioning.

MH shows up with a full team of attorneys while HJ is confronting Jang in the interrogation room, but failing to get anything out of him beyond his admission that he kidnapped her child 8 years ago.

At the same time, DY is visiting his bank manager, puzzling him by saying he's come to assure him that his marriage is in an excellent state.

MH's attorneys hand out her business cards to all those present in the interrogation room. On the card handed to Jang, a street address in LA has been handwritten at the bottom. Under the table, Jang screws up the card in his fist as MH says she did indeed employ Jang 8 years ago, but it was to investigate a weird woman who was stalking her husband. Apparently back then he badly needed cash for his sick baby, so did he also take to child abduction to extract more cash from someone else back then, and  does he still have medical bills to pay and so has taken a bribe to slander her now? She exchanges menacing glances with Jang at each mention of his sick child, and he finally says that yes, he did indeed kidnap HJ's baby, but not on MH's orders, it was simply on his own account in the hope of making some money. After a smirking MH and her entourage have left, HJ pleads with Jang to testify to the truth, but he replies that since GO is now safely reunited with his real mother, he's done enough for HJ. He'll say nothing more about the matter to anyone.

HJ goes back to MH's office and warns her that she'll visit Jang every day in jail for as long as it takes to persuade him to tell the truth. But she won't only be using persuasion. Since he's so susceptible to threats, she'll convince him that MJ's days are numbered and that he'd be well advised to jump ship before she goes down. But MJ says that even if Jang did change his mind, no-one will take a jailbird's word against hers. Anyway once the franchising contract is concluded her position at the top of LK will be unassailable and no-one will be bothered about that recording. "Ah yes, that contract?" says HJ with a wicked grin. At that moment, bent CEO comes in with the bombshell that the contract has fallen through.

Another row between the Mistress and MS leads to DY's father discovering not only that HR isn't DY's daughter, but that her father is JW. He at once calls MH to summon her home without saying why, but she says she won't come till she's finished work. MS calls DY (who's still with the bank manager) to alert him. He in turn calls HR, but we see that she's enjoying herself in JW's office and she tells DY she can't tell him where she is, because that would give away a secret her mother old her to keep. But DY hears JW'v voice asking what she'd like to eat.

MH arrives home and has  to face the music for the cliffhanger. No teaser attached to the episode.

You would thnk now that HJ is a chief director, she would have got a lawyer. Get Jang to sign some adoption papers or irrevocable guardianship or something while he is in a penitent statw of mind.

Maybe I should not call the ma dimwit or pinhead, it seems genetic and really not their faults.

I look at the raw and it does not bode well, I think we are expecting many episodes of anguish :(. Although I don't have access to the preview of episode 85, I have no hopes for the following episodes. To continue the trend of the last episodes probably the conflicts will be solved at the end of the drama and in a couple of episodes, contrary to my expectations of about ten episodes of denunciation, escape, capture, prosecution and jail for the evil ones.

So the only points I have clear are: 

  1. That HY is the only person who is on the right track, prioritizing the destruction of MH on any other matter, because it is the only way to have safe GO.
  2. CDB is the most despicable character of this drama and follows MH, almost at his height.

Ga On with his recent abusive childhood will not trust a total stranger (Do Yoon) willingly. Everything will have to take time. Even Ha Jin rushed to stop her own mother "battering" Ga On for his thoughts about Do Yoon.

Please do not be so hard with DY, having experience as parents gives no guarantee of anything. I raised two beautiful daughters who today are excellent human beings in cough aspects but I have met many times with other children that despite my "experience as a mother" I have not been able to handle or I have not correctly performed a situation Determined. Each child and their situation is different and unique. For DY it is even traumatic to face his own child and it is understandable that he makes mistakes and does not know how to handle the situation.

when? where? I can not believe this, if it is true what you say there can only be one of two options, that MH gave you instructions to tell that to JW or HR is a demon equal to MH. I bet the first choice, remember that the favorite person of HR is MS and then DY and she never mentioned it to MH when it comes to favoritism, in fact she is afraid of MH.

Definitely HR must be removed from MH as soon as possible, she is again using HR for her purposes and forcing her to lie, to continue this situation HR is destined to become a monster, despite the good influences that have received from DY and MS

In some episode she told JW that she loved DY's mother best followed by DY. it will turn out later that MH has coached her responses this time - my need for consistency- or the writer forgets what he wrote since he was so busy scr***ing GO and HJ.

I wander how Min Hee will explain ... probably bring out the contract marriage and that Do Yoon knew the truth. 

I just realised that what Min Hee feared most is that her mother will abandoned her if she fail to stay as Chairman of LK Group. That is how much insecure she really is. She sound like a little girl ... an orphan little girl.

Banish any possible pity you have for her. Think of the suffering and abuse GO had to endure - all because of her vicious, underhanded and dirty deeds against HJ. 

She is a schizoid whose personality can change in a heartbeat, She belongs to the prison.
