Okay, I have a few minutes to give my thoughts.

 

I was thinking the fight in Japan was going to be the end of JC's boxing career, but it was actually a fight with MW and afterward JC was banned and MW thinks he lost on purpose. There was a shady looking fellow at the Japan match that I'm guessing plays into things. MW might be a bit nostalgic about SJ but he's also using her to get to JC. Interesting. I assume this will all build to an ultimate showdown in the ring between MW and JC.

 

I don't particularly like SJ, but if JC kept promising to take care of things and then not coming through, I can understand why she'd become resentful. The scene of her working two jobs and then coming home to a messy house was something I could empathize with. That doesn't mean I like how she expresses her feelings to JC. I didn't like that she went to dinner with MW, but I hated that she badmouthed JC to him. 

 

Totally with you,  about the wife, she is not being loyal to her husband. It doesn't matter how many problems do you have o what difficulties  is your family going through. She knows that her husband and MW are not friends and JC is looking like a fool in front of him, she seems no to know that the only thing JC  has left is his pride. I feel sad for him.

Does she really know any credible reason for JC's disapproval of MW apart from their past professional rivalry? She didn't go and ask MW for help. It was MW who showed up when she was in desperate need of money. He was her childhood friend, so she didn't distrust him. He even gave her a much desired writing job. Till this point SJ never acted in selfish way. She has only her daughter's wellbeing in her mind.

 

I'm not the writer of this drama so I don't know how her character will act in upcoming episodes but SJ is not vicious, she is just frustated with her life-style and Ji Chul.

 

Despite all of this belittling the husband(both in public and private) is a big no-no. If she rebukes him for his mistake then It's alright.

I also feel that there seems to be a misunderstanding between JC and MW. Did JC really fake a defeat during their last match? Or was there something wrong with his body that caused him to lose in a manner that neither MW or the public could accept or even believe that he genuinely lost? MW seems to bear that grudge till now and he is using SJ to get back at JC.

I feel sad for him too.. every time he gets knock down at the ring, the  thought of and love for his family always gives him the strength to persevere and get up again to fight.. There must have been some reason for him to lose that last match...

I think she did approach MW for help on her own the first time round.  But later on, after JC went to return MW his money and sort of reminded him about SJ being his first love, MW got angry and approach SJ to ask her to write his autobiography.

 

Frankly speaking, I find it hard to blame SJ but I also feel very sad for JC. He is really trying his best...luck is just really not on their side. Their daughter's case, JC losing his job, house getting auctioned off soon unless they have the money to buy  it..all these need money...really in desperate need of money and JC's health is worrisome too..He is hiding it from his wife.

And can anyone recall the first scene of Husband and Wife in the kitchen? 

 

JC eating curry and his Wife is hurrying to work and asked him about the $1000 in his jacket. JC expressed he is feeling lonely. It shows that they have not bedded each other for a while. It must have been since they were both trying to make ends meet. And that could be why she can’t write erotic stuff or find any inspiration to do so. 

 

During the press con, the wife’s character did mention this is a story about How the family almost fall apart and went through all to be together again. Becos of what the actress said, I believe JC and his Wife still love each other. JC doesn’t want her to touch the broken flower pot Becos he still care. But the reality of financial problem is taking a toil on their relationship.

 

And what is so good about the plot is that this part about the family, about the Wife and husband and Financial problem is so real. It is almost like a scene taken off from a real life story. 

 

I saw some preview but i dont know how to extract it and post it here hahaha!

MW was already in the hospital to check on his fighter friend(Correct me if I'm wrong). YS was already hospitalized. He just grabbed the opportunity to help SJ, that she being a mother couldn't deny.

Apart from that in the scene where JC confronted the teacher, he took the opportunity to calm both him and the teacher down. He made JC look bad in SJ's eyes.

Lol. I was also thinking that they should give consideration to their natural instinct so that she can finish her masterpiece and solve their financial issues.:D

SJ in hospital clothes and JC handing her divorce papers. If say he really abandoned her when she was sick....that would be really terrible :X Her anger and coldness would be more than understandable if that was so.

 

I'm not in favour of too many recollection scenes (when it stalls the progression of the plot) but I think the time is ripe now for more recollections of what happened between JC SJ and MW back then.

When they showed this scene, I believed that maybe this happened after JC's "fall". Maybe at that time he believed it would be better to get divorced because of the accident that made him lose his fame. He may have believed that since his career was ruined, this would also damage his family, so he may have decided to ask for divorce without thinking just for SJ and YS's wellbeing. I guess that what made them stick together even after that was SJ's perseverance and that JC realized he was too impulsive. From the flashbacks we can see she really loved her husband, and when you love somebody you are willing to be with them despite the difficulties you may encounter. JC also loves his wife and daughter, but he shows his love in other ways.

I also think he did not try to abandon his sick wife.

 

From the eariler preview it looked like their family had an accident. SJ was hospitalized because she was badly injured. I think the flashback belongs to the same time period.

Moreover according to the synopsis their daughter was also hurt/sick so she had to give up her dream of being a ballerina. They didn't have money for treating her.

In the scene where she(daughter) tries to hold the mean girl(after accidently pushing her), her back hurts.

 

Yeah, it would also match how the first episode starts and JC saying that the daughter he was saving in that bus was not his daughter. At first I didn't understand why he was saying that, thinking that he may have used a methapor because he wants to protect his daughter and he's very upset when he checks on YS at the hospital, but after you mentioned this it seems clear that there is a connection between the two things. During Ep. 3, JC also says that "one day you're considered a hero, the next you're garbage". Maybe that's what happened 11 years ago. Maybe the bus where JC and his crew and his family were on had an accident. In addition to that, he could have taken a bribe to make MW win on purpose, and this is why he hates gambling parlors and people who go to those places. Maybe in the end the medicine will help boost his career again and also his confidence in himself, and in the end also put his family back together like he dreamed, because he just wanted to be an "ordinary dad".

 

About the medicine, I also think that it may lead to a depressing conclusion, since the doctors were discussing how he wasn't fit for the trial, but I hope not. In fact, when he takes the pills he has a sudden shock as if he's allucinating and under the effect of strong drugs, so they are definitely not doing great things to his body besides giving him strenght. Fantasy aside, it could be a reaction of the body cells to the blue pill: they are trying to kick it out of the system and while doing so, they cause a reaction that make JC "hyperactive" (if we want to stay realistic)... like, I don't know, when a person is pushed to do things they wouldn't do because of an adrenaline rush.

 

As for SJ, I don't think she's selfish either. For the 17 years she and JC have been together, we've seen from the flashbacks that she's always been supportive of her family no matter what. But now, when her family is drowning in debt and things are getting tougher, she decided to think about what's better for YS and her husband, because only a fool wouldn't take the chance offered by MW. She is not doing it to reconnect with MW, she is doing it to help her family survive and be happy as well, since her dream is to become a writer and she can't dedicate her life to writing if she has bills to pay and so on. This chance gives her the occasion to finally do what she likes and be paid for it. SJ looks like a genuine woman, and she knows that her husband dislikes MW but maybe not the official reason. I don't know if she realizes that MW used to like her, but she's acting towards him like an old friend. After all, even if there is no good blood between JC and MW, he didn't do anything bad to her for SJ to stop interacting with him. Or at least that we know of. In the end I think that even if MW could try to make a move on her (maybe just to get JC mad), she will stay loyal to JC.

 

I'm still not sure about MW's true personality. During Ep. 01-02 we saw him as the handsome fighter who is loved by his fans because of his attitude et all, but during Ep. 03-04 we saw other sides to MW, maybe his true character. But this is yet to be final, because like @azureblue7 said, perhaps MW misunderstood JC and was disappointed in what he did that lead to his ban. Perhaps his goal is to really win against JC in a real match and not in a staged one. Maybe MW is convinced he rose to fame just because JC was pushed out of the league. Perhaps MW feels like his pride was hurt because he didn't win because of his merits... maybe he's a man with an ethic... we'll see.

“Bad Papa” Cast Has Fun Behind The Scenes

Oct 5, 2018
by R. Jun

New behind-the-scenes photos have been released for MBC’s new Monday-Tuesdasy drama “Bad Papa,” and the cast is all smiles.

The drama — starring Jang HyukSon Yeo EunShin Eun SooHa Jun, and Kim Jae Kyung — is about the hard life of a man who decides to be bad in order to be a good father.

Completely immersed in the script or scene one second and laughing and joking the next, the “Bad Papa” cast has created a fun atmosphere on set. Jang Hyuk has been dubbed the “ad lib god” for his hilarious improvisations during scenes, and Son Yeo Eun puts the cast and crew at ease with a warm, easy smile.

The production staff of the drama said, “It’s not easy for there to be a cast of actors that are this nice. They’re all so considerate and supportive of each other. ‘Bad Papa,’ with its movie-like scenery and unique energy, will start to pick up the pace. Please stay tuned.”

“Bad Papa” airs on Mondays and Tuesdays on MBC.

 because only a fool wouldn't take the chance offered by MW.  bills to pay and so on.

 

I'm still not sure about MW's true personality.

Obligatory nobel idiocy?

 

Why would he need to take the bribe though? He was rich.

 

Medicine can only boost his performance and make his family momentarily happy but he has to face the consequences. I think the drama aims to depict his downfall.

 

I consider the medicine's effects magical.:innocent:

 

From SJ's point of view this is an amazing offer. It would be highly imprudent to decline it just because her husband has a little unreasonable dislike for MW. We can clearly see her unselfishness when she sees the offer as the key to educate her daughter better.

 

 

I think MW won't be full fledged villian. We have Park Jibin for that. But what he is doing to YJC and SJ is not admirable.

Maybe he turned out so badly because he did not take the blue pills to counteract the effects of the test they did on him or whatsoever ?

More likely this scenario. And they will be tracking down the person who took the pills.

I think they reshot some parts of the first (maybe also second eps). Intially  YJC was supposed to be suspended for sexual harassment  but later they changed it to bribe. You can see it was bit different in the preview.

Yeah, but it would fit his role imo, because he's smart but he also doesn't values himself the way others saw/see him in the present. YD considered him as a great fighter if he hasn't forgotten about him after all those years he left the scene. There's probably other people who feel the same, but JC doesn't seem to believe them.

 

I think that the reason he was banned could be that at the time somebody wanted to bribe him and this act was enough to kick him out. And this is why today he hates who gives bribes or bets in gambling parlors. If you think about it, the scene in Ep. 01 when he receives the bribe from the monk could be happened in the past when he was a fighter. Maybe JC was offered a bribe, he refused, and the person who wanted to give it to him (perhaps someone related to MW) manipulated everything and planted the money somewhere in JC's belongings and he didn't know anything about it. So the reason he was banned is because somebody set him up. But it could have happen in the other way: JC was offered a bribe, he accepted, lost the match (perhaps the deal was to lose) and it was discovered. It's true that he was rich, but he could have been greedy, seeing that he was a hot shot fighter. And perhaps he was thinking that more money could benefit his family. It could happen that his ex detective partner and the police station where he used to work may be of help unveiling the real reason to clear his name and indict those who tricked him. I think what we see in the present is highly connected to what happened in the past, a sort of dejavu. Maybe reversed.

 

MW doesn't seem to be too villainous to me either. At this moment he seems like he's one of those rich guys with too much time on his hands to care for the adventures of his first love and her husband.
