I am sorry but I have a totally different experience.  I feel Park Ha Na's acting has regressed.  She was brillant and natural as the rich, spoilt teenager.  Now she appears still rich and spoilt but also very childish.  Her attempts at acting cute isn't natural.  When she pouts - which she seems to do in at least two scenes every day! - I just feel like if this is the best she can do, then she really is not ready for a meatier role.  Seems like all she can do is act the rich, spoilt teenager.  But alas, age has caught up with her.  So she really needs to improve on her acting skills if she wants to stay relevant in the business.

I agree with those who would like to see this spoilt and quite useless creature get her just desserts.  18 years old should be old enough to know what she did was very wrong.  She's not just rich and spoilt but also a terrible coward. 

 

And this is my complaint about this show: BN is getting zero payback, zero!!!  I don't feel like watching it at all - though I still want to read everyone's comments here, teehee.  But the story just isn't going anywhere! I want BN's lies that got ES fired from her teaching job exposed and the fallout that comes with it, and, nothing. Like I'm supposed to care about BN's crappy marriage? That's all I get along with other side stories that are distractions, and not the point at all.

In episode 80's preview, ES's GM visited Dr. Kim at his clinic and asked him if YM is the woman he is seeing/dating.

Dr. Kim is under the impression that YM rejected him because their daughters married into the same household and are relatives.

YM is still unable to bring herself to tell Dr. Kim she cannot forget and accept what Rich Brat had done to ES in the past.

It looks like ES is helping Corporate Wimpy Jerk to loosen up and is coaching him on how to woo Rich Brat. She was seen giving him a catalog from a company specializing in organizing events for special occasions.

Soo Ho's suspicions that ES might be having an affair were unfounded as he finds out who ES has been meeting and talking to.

I just loved Soo Ho as the jealous husband. So cute. I am sure the two of them will be the marriage counselors in the next episode.

Have you guys noticed that the Yoon brothers married their complete opposite of their siblings. Soon Hoo fell for a woman who is very grounded much like his brother.  Soon Hyun married a hot tempered, spoiled brat. But he doesn't know that his wife is very selfish and not very kind.

In a bar, Rich Brat and Eun Soo bicker. Then they drink. Rich Brat claims that she needs extra drinks to handle the fact that she is at the bar with Eun Soo. Rich Brat fears that her loveless marriage may be punishment for a life ill lived, rather than her failure to check her husband's warranty before she purchased him.

Thanks @jimb  Love it:joy: Yep she should have check her warrinty but she didn't and yes it's her karma to be in a loveless marriage but she'll use this to go back to her castle were she can be pampered..

SYNOPSIS, EPISODE 79

Morning.

Mother Yoon is in the kitchen making breakfast because both of her daughters in law are indisposed. She is not pleased.

Eun Soo struggles for wakefulness. Her head hurts.

Seeking a kiss, Club Jerk halts his wife's progress toward the bathroom, where she probably needs to upchuck. She throws him on the bed.

Rich Brat awakens to a curt note from her husband. She cannot remember the night before.

Breakfast at the Yoon residence. Mother Yoon has thrown out the hangover soup she was preparing and instead serves pizza and pasta.

Everyone stares balefully at the greasy fare. Then Rich Brat enters the room on her way to work. She spots the pizza and grabs a piece as she leaves. Even Mother Yoon is shocked that anyone could stomach pizza for breakfast.

The Manager offers to make Eun Soo coffee as the workgroup heads to a meeting. Eun Soo is uncomfortable, not to mention hungover.

Eun Soo encounters Rich Brat on her way to the meeting. Rich Brat assumes The Stance. Rich Brat now remembers that she talked to Eun Soo the night before but can't remember what she said.

Club Jerk texted Eun Soo as she was summoned to the meeting. He complains that she ignored his text. Suspicious, he volunteers to deliver an envelope to Yoonga Foods headquarters.

Club Jerk joins Eun Soo and her work group and gives them cake.

As Club Jerk leaves, Eun Soo walks him into the hall and reproaches him for visiting her at her workplace. He is beginning to feel unloved.

Corporate Jerk runs into Eun Soo in the hallway and gives her a few shots of his arrogance. Eun Soo almost feels sorry for Rich Brat and offers to give him some remedial tutoring in human behavior.

The Aunt is sitting in Rich Brat's fathers waiting room when she receives a call from the Real Estate Lady, who tells her that the Former Department Store Supervisor is definitely still available. She abandons her appointment with Rich Brat's father and runs out the door.

Rich Brat's father sees Father Yoon, who is complaining about his back again. Before leaving, they discuss Rich Brat's request to move back home. Rich Brat's father says that won't be necessary since he will not be taking the job in the country and thus can keep Halmoni company.

Corporate Jerk is about to accept an invitation to a business meeting when he remembers some of Eun Soo's coaching. He remembers that he needs to show his wife some attention and decline.

Rich Brat leaves work to join her husband on the sidewalk. He hides from her and is playful. She wonders why he is acting weird. Then his antics cause her to slip and fall. She has a nosebleed. She storms off in anger.

As Sister Yoon leaves work, she asks her assistant why the Upstairs Tenant hasn't come by all day.

Sister Yoon has summoned the Upstairs Tenant to a cafe for an immediate Talk. She asks him if he really wants to set her up with a blind date. He says sure. Then she fixes him with a stare which strongly suggests that he has Said The Wrong Thing. She declares her love for him. He is hocked. She tries to close the deal and he runs off. She runs him down. He tells her that he doesn't deserve her. Also, that he has two children. He shows her a picture of the twins but she doesn't recognize them because they're baby pictures. He walks away while she stands, bewildered.

Eun Soo coaches Corporate Jerk over the phone. But she terminates the call abruptly and hides the phone as Club Jerk enters the bedroom. He has concluded that there is another man in her life, but who? His suspicions are confirmed when she refuses to allow him to check her phone's call log.

Rich Brat scores a small victory in her cold war with Eun Soo. Then Father Yoon summons her and hands her a major defeat.

Halmoni is upset to learn that Father Yoon won't allow Rich Brat to move in with her. Then she is puzzled to learn that Father Yoon discussed the matter with her son in law.

Rich Brat's father arrives and Halmoni says that she needs to have a word with her. He tells her that he needs to meet someone and leaves.

Club Jerk imagines that Eun Soo was getting hot and heavy with a competitor when he interrupted her phone call. Just then Eun Soo enters the bedroom, climbs into bed, and pushes him away when he tries to get amorous.

After Eun Soo falls asleep, Club Jerk tries to check her cell phone but it is password protected.

Back in their bedroom, things are not going well for the other brother either. He tries to write something on his sleeping wife's hand with a magic marker but she awakens and is like, Really? He holds her hand and tries to be understanding but she wonders whether he is sick.

Eun Soo's grandmother arrives at the dry cleaning shop. She lurks in the hallway when she sees her Doctor talking with her daughter in law.

Ultimately, it is Soo Ho's words for his wife that won Bit Na over for Soo Hyun. Soo Hyun just took the credit since things had work out for him.

Soo Ho and Eun Hee joked that she had really failed as a dating coach looking at Soo Hyun's poor creative skill in making a heart chocolate without any lettering.

Preview, I think Soo Hyun is not happy with his father's complimenting Soo Ho.

Soo Ho had gone back to the main office in creating a new menu.

The words in the card ... that save Soo Hyun's backside

"I am sorry ... it is because I am lacking that I had caused you hurt from my actions.

For being my woman, I want to thank you.

And ... I love you.

From your man."

Good thing Soo Ho did not end it with "bubble, bubble".

Alcohol is part of the Korean life. The English is known to put the kettle on and make tea to sort out a crisis, the Koreans solve crisis with alcohol. On my many visits to Korea, there is always a drunken scene on the street all the time.

As for the Chaebol rich, look at the fine examples coming through the news from the infamous macadamia nuts that stop the flight, to the infamous drunk young Korean Chaebol that was subdued by a famous singer, Richard Marx ... to the one drunk who destroyed the interior of the police car he rode and and kicking dents into it when he got off.

It got me thinking never to travel first class on Korean Airlines.

I would travel first class on Korean Airlines if I could afford it.  Korean Airlines' motto is "excellence in flight" and their service really is fantastic.  Smiling flight attendants that always look perfect, always polite, no attitude.  And, if you were sitting in first class when that incident went down, you could have actually stood up for the flight attendant.  You could also have been the one to take the video cam of what happened.  As an American, if I had been in first class, I think I would have raised my own stink.  Not at the flight attendant, but at the passenger for raising such a stink--in the first class cabin--and delaying the flight.  I would have asked the other flight attendant to call security or the captain, and I actually believe that would have made a difference.  Perhaps the captain would have been too scared to do anything, but if airport security had been called, I doubt that they would have done nothing about it. Most likely, I think they would have escorted the rich girl off the plane.

Unfortunately, this is what happens with Korean dramas.  They create these incredibly villainous characters who do horrible things, and then the ending always ends in one of the following ways:

1.  Attempted suicide that actually succeeds

2. Attempted suicide resulting in amnesia or other permanent brain damage and everyone else just forgives them because the evil character attempted suicide

3. Miraculous coming-to-Jesus moment resulting in complete forgiveness by family and victims and a much lighter legal punishment than they deserve.

1 and 2 used to be really popular in the past.  I'm seeing a lot more of #3 now.  I wonder if it's because of the ratings or what, but these daily dramas (which also happen to always be the crazy makjang ones) are very unbalanced in this way.  For some reason, it's ok to show horrible acts and behavior, but not okay to show the punishment such acts deserve.

At least BN should be exposed and get some hate all around for it even if she gets forgiven.

@jimb  Thanks for the recap.. Mom has been around long enough to know that anybody that could stomach pasta and pizza after a night of drunken bliss is no stranger to alcohol and has been around the block a time or two.. Just thinking about it makes me want to barf..

I liked Jechoi1's assessment of kdrama villians punishment. I only watch the occasional scene of this drama but I've noticed that Rich Brat sometimes gets these scenes with light-hearted almost comical background music. Like the director is trying to soften her image. IMO this this is a clue that Rich Brat is headed for a soft landing with minimal punishment at the conclusion of this drama. I did watch the first few episodes and noticed that they had a much harder and serious tone than the current episodes. In case any viewers have developed even an ounce of sympathy for Rich Brat I suggest they rewatch some of the early episodes. Lest they forget Rich Brats evil behavior. She disrespected En Soos mom at the department store to a degree that was almost criminal. Especially in a culture that greatly values respect for ones elders as does Korea's. She also terrorized and bullied her classmate which was criminal. Remember the terrified and worried look on her classmates face whenever you feel the slightest bit of sympathy towards Rich Brat. She also lied and got En Soo fired from her teacher position. I am unsure if the case actually went to court, but if it did and she testified that En Soo broke her finger then Rich Brat is guilty of perjury which is definitely a crime.

 

When Grumpy Granny was ostracized in public for the parking lot incident I had some hope that this drama might be different and avoid the typical Kumbiya ending. But the aforementioned changes in tone of this drama tell my instincts that it's headed towards a soft ending.

 

If the writers do not reintroduce the Bullied Classmate character at some point I would feel a great sense of injustice. That character deserves to have her story told. She also should be given a chance at revenge. I'd love too see her terrorize Rich Brat through blackmail with her knowledge of Rich Brats history. Revenge aside I would think that most viewers would be very curious as to what happened to this girl. Was she able to overcome the psychological trama that Rich Brat put her through? If the Bullied Classmate's life took a turn for the worse Rich Brat and those around her should be made aware of this and the guilt should be a part of Rich Brats punishment.

SYNOPSIS, EPISODE 80

Eun Soo's grandmother arrives at the dry cleaning shop. She lurks in the hallway shen she sees her Doctor talking with her daughter in law.

Eun Soo's mother refuses to tell Rich Brat's father why her ardor has suddenly cooled. She sends him away.

Club Jerk wakes up and looks at his sleeping wife. His adultery fantasies are on full blast.

Eun Soo's grandmother sits up in her bedroom and sadly considers her sleeping daughter in law.

Morning.

Eun Soo and her brother in law encounter each other in the hallway between their bedrooms. Rich Brat approaches them and complains that it took a long time to wash off whatever her husband wrote on her hand. Eun Soo is sad to learn that her advice has thus far driven Corporate Jerk further into the dog house.

Eun Soo enters her bedroom and mutters something about Corporate Jerk's failure as a lover. Club jerk thinks she is talking about his supposed romantic rival.

Eun Soo's mother drags herself into work. As she sits alone, she remembers Rich Brat's father's words.

Eun Soo and Corporate Jerk are in his office. She suggests that he should try to plan an event for Rich Brat.

The Upstairs Tenant works at his desk. He remembers Sister Yoon's profession of love. He thinks that he cannot enter a relationship with Sister Yoon because of his responsibilities to the twins. Then someone calls and asks for the phone number of the twins' mother, whom she met at the twins' schools. He is bewildered. He does not know that Sister Yoon has been posing as their mother.

The Upstairs Tenant confronts the twins and scolds them for not telling him about the parent-teacher meeting. They tell him it was an event expecially for mothers and the other kids make fun of them when he comes instead. He says that he has to meet this woman who posed as their mother. He asks his daughter to schedule a meeting.

Sister Yoon sits forlornly at her desk and remembers the baby pictures the Upstairs Tenant showed her. Then she receives a call from his daughter. Yes, she will meet her father that evening.

Club Jerk pitches his father re: making his new healthy dish a Yoonga Food product.

Eun Soo's grandmother arrives at her Doctor's office. They have a heart to heart about his relationship with Eun Soo's mother. He does not tell her about their recent difficulties.

Eun Soo arrives at her mother's shop.to pick up some dry cleaning. She asks about her mother's Chingu and is told that they haven't seen each other lately. Then she leaves to take Corporate Jerk to a class.

Club Jerk texts his wife. He notices that she has changed her profile picture and is suspicious. Apparently, he has placed a tracker on his cell phone because he knows where she is: a cafe.

Club Jerk heads for the cafe to confront Eun Soo and the cad. From the street through the window, he can see her sitting at a table but a pillar blocks his view of the cad. When he finds out that the cad is his brother, he feels like an idiot. Eun Soo leads him away.

Corporate Jerk attends a class. It seems to be on how to buy and give candy to women, or some such.

Eun Soo and Club Jerk enter their bedroom and bicker. She explains everything. Turns out that it was a candy making class. She observes that he seems to have little faith in her and storms out of the room.

The Upstairs Tenant arrives at the Aunt's cafe for his meat up with the volunteer "mother." He is surprised to find only Sister Yoon there. He sits at his own table awaiting the arrival of his "date." When the twins arrive, Sister Yoon is surprised to see them greet the Upstairs Tenant as their father. They move to a common table. The Aunt watches the goings on and is confused.

Rich Brat's father arrives home. Halmoni asks whether he wants her to live alone since, after his conversation with Father Yoon, Rich Brat won't be moving in with her. He tells her that he will still be there to keep her company since he will not be accepting the job in the country. She wonders why he has decided to stay.

Rich Brat arrives home and receives a call from Halmoni. Halmoni asks whether Rich Brat knows if her father is dating anyone. Rich Brat says, Don't be silly.

Club Jerk has placed candy and a love note in the pocket of a coat in Eun Soo's closet. When he returns to their bedroom, he asks about the coat. Eun Soo tells him that it wasn't her coat.

Rich Brat enters her bedroom and finds the errant coat on her bed, since it was hers. She finds the love note and is favorably impressed. Just then, her husband enters the room with wine. She rushes into his arms. She thanks him for the note. He starts to ask, What note?, but thinks better of it.

Club Jerk pounds on the door. Corporate Jerk goes out into the hallway and stifles his brother before he can demand the return of his note.

Eun Soo's mother hunts vainly for the picture of her late husband. Her mother in law enters and tells her that she has gotten rid of it because she should move on to Rich Brat's father.

Rich Brat enters her father's office to ask what's up with him. He explains that he likes a woman. Rich Brat is like, Euw! Gross!!

Even wedding vows state that "till death do us part" so having served 20 years in his late wife's memory is really good enough. I had informed my husband that he is welcomed to find another if so happen I "kick the bucket" first.

Look like it is a battle of power between Soo Hyun and his father as they both had different direction where Yoonga Food should be.

Preview, Bit Na was caught trying to push her "status" around Eun Soo and got caught.

Bit Na threw a tantrum after being compare to Eun Soo in the cooking skill by Soo Ho's mother.
