sorry to cut your post!!

 

6) JW, whom some see as a villain, seems to really love CSH and though he has exhibited insecurity and jealousy through his questions and actions, somehow, I feel that his love is so strong that he's eventually willing to trade his own love for CSH's happiness. He has spoken up for CSH against his mum and saved KJH from his mum. His encounter with KJH wasn't savage or vindictive. He was polite and well under control of his emotions. It shows him as a well-groomed gentleman so far. I'm for it that he had fabricated an affair to save CSH from her miserable marriage and MIL. 

When CSH finally finds out, she'll be touched and that might have KJH wondering if she's better off to go back to him.

 

Well, I don't see JWS as a villain but I am not feeling sorry for him. Maybe it is because I am watching another drama where children are abused and these children have a much more terrible fate than his. His cage is partially his own creation.

First, we shouldn't forget that 4 years have passed, since CSH got divorced and this is a long time. So he kept his distance from her for a while... that's why he said "long time no see" at his mother's birthday. So his first meeting was planned... he wanted to enter her life again hence he said, he acted as a friend.  

But I would like to add two scenes about JWS that caught my attention after watching all the episodes for a second time:

  • The meeting of CSH and JWS at the bar: he described her as goofy or eccentric for eating ramen at a rest stop which is definitely not a compliment. First his words upset CSH a lot, she felt insulted. Secondly his words revealed that he has a different picture of CSH: she is outstanding and sophisticated. That's this exact word he used to describe CSH in front of JH (episode 6). For him, CSH would never do such a thing: eating ramen. He believes that she has been influenced by JH. JH is a bad influence. Notice the contrast with his wine. He selected a wine that was supposed to be outstanding and rare. And that's the point: JWS doesn't know the real CSH... when he told her that he liked CSH's style, then he fell for the obedient doll that her mother had created. Therefore I doubt that he really loves the real CSH, the one who will be happy, when she receives potatoes cakes or plays at the beach... Now, if we analyze again the meeting of JH and JWS, when he mentioned the necktie, JWS's words could be perceived in a different way. JWS wanted to tell that CSH is out of JH's league, she is so outstanding that she doesn't belong to JH's world. JWS was described by others as scary and manipulative and in this scene, we could view this exchange as manipulative: he wants JH to back off. But the problem is that JH is so different from JWS. He is straightforward and natural, hence he didn't understand the meaning... he just saw someone paying a compliment to the necktie and the person who gave it to him.  

 

  • The meeting of secretary Jang Mi Jin and JWS: he actually wanted to warn CSH through Jang with these words: "As a friend, I thought that we have to be more careful". Jang went straight to CSH and told her: "He was saying that we should be more careful". Indirectly, he was saying that CSH should stop seeing JH but he used her friend for that. Why? Don't forget that in the episode 3, he asked her not to date or meet JH. But his words hadn't worked on her hence he needed to add more pressure. He knows how JMJ is. She would pressure CSH in that direction. And here we have another manipulation.

JWS has been shown as quite possessive, even if his jealousy is not so obvious, not like the typical jealous second lead. By coming to the PR department, he clearly wants to demonstrate that he is still in CSH's life... He thought that JH would recognize him and get scared. Fortunately, JH is so ignorant and felt nothing in front of JWS. And when they met the second time, he didn't feel embarrassed too because his mentality is so different: he is someone who doesn't view life in term of power and wealth. All these notions are not important.

 

To conclude, JWS is not a poor puppy in my opinion. Oh yes he lied to her in order to free her, what a selfless gesture! In reality, I doubt it. It is the opposite. But don't forget that with this move,

  1. CSH got hurt with his behavior... he begged her for the divorce implying that he never loved her at all. Even if it was a lie, for her it was real back then!  I wouldn't feel touched, rather upset because in reality, he was the one who made the choice. He "decided" for her so-called own good... He could have solved the whole problem, if he had confessed to her but he never did. Like CSH says in the preview, she allowed people to decide for her in her life and to me, this is such a situation. 
  2. CSH is now stigmatized as a divorcee. Getting a new boyfriend and a new husband is even more difficult because people will see the divorce as a bad omen. I even suspect that JH's mother might be against CSH because she represents everything JH's mother dislikes. A woman should be focusing on her husband and his family... not money and power. Moreover, JH's mother implied that such a woman means a lot of trouble.  
  3. She even got more hatred from her own mother. CSH had failed to "seduce" her husband who needed to find someone else. Her mother kept blaming her for the divorce in the first two episodes. His decision to push her away deteriorated her relationship with her mother.
  4. I came to realize that he knows the clause of the divorce contract. Yet he didn't try to change anything. Why? That way he ensures that she is still a part of his life. He really believes that CSH values the same things than him due to the hotel. In his eyes, she proved that she belonged to the same circle with her flourishing business. He thinks, she likes money, power and status. But he is entirely wrong. The hotel represents something else for her: her skills. She pulled all her strength into it, not to impress people... but to prove to herself what she is capable of. Her ex-family and her own mother only viewed her as a doll, as a thing ... which implies that she has no skills at all.

To summarize, he is too "manipulative" for his own good. At some point, CSH will be confronted with this dilemma: giving up the hotel or JH. JWS firmly believes that CSH will never do such a thing as he still thinks, she belongs to his world and she is like him: smart, sophisticated and refined. Yet she values relationship over worth/value.

 

The reason he came to JH's rescue in the latest episode is quite simple. Since he witnessed how close CSH and JH are, he knew that his mother's bullying towards JH would put him in a bad light. The more his mother intervenes, the lower are his chances that CSH can fall in love with him. CSH saw the scene... JWS is unaware of it, but he thought that JH would mention it to CSH. His mother saw that her son was somehow upset hence she retaliated.

ending eps 6 is so daebak. another great ending.

I am also scared what will MIL do to KJH, she said about dog will lose everything and end up starving? prepare for the storm, but please give us much much sunny day before that (the ending animation they are heading towards sun). and if they will sold this drama worldwide, I think they will give happy ending?

(please happy ending this time... because I really love both CSH, KJH).

I'm also wondering how will they spend christmas together?

I think KJH already know that HI likes him, in eps 1 she already ask KJH about their married and wants to talk about them.

No matter how great WS as a guy 0r how much he seems to love SH, they will never be happy together especially with his mom around. Im sure SH suffered a lot as a wife & DIL in that house hold. Remember MJ said they thought everything will be okay after WS's father died. N how his mom keep on saying she need to be the obedient wife again. Thats not a life any woman want. WSs mom commenting on her handbag previously shows a glimpse of how horrifying their marriage life was

Please share your thoughts.

 

I cant count how much I have watched and re-watched the 6 episodes either. This alwyas happen every time I have to wait for a week for the next episode. And I still keep on smiling and squeling by myself like an idiot :lol:

 

My thoughts:

 

Spoiler

1) Basing on the epi 7 teaser where CSH’s dad was talking to KJH, there might me be a big possibility that he will have a change of heart (hearing from CSH herself that the  Donghwa Hotel is her everything) and he might think or “suggest” that to CSH.

 

2) I really could not guess what JW or HI will do. But I feel like if there was someone who will betray a friend, it will most likely be HI. JW has lead a life of control, even if he has the power to make things horrible for CSH. A lifetime of control and discipline and for the fact that he made up having another woman just to let CSH free of his suffocating family only to try to get CSH back now wouldn’t make any sense. 

 

HI however, might try to take matters into her own hands only to try to save KJH. She might meet up with the person who offered her to post that memo and do something to horribly break our OTP.

 

Things and feelings are moving really fast for our OTP. We’re only in Epi 6. That lead me to believe that at one point they will try to not see each other only to realize that being apart is not doing good for either of them. Maybe that will happen for 1 or 2 episodes before they will reconsile and finally not just as a “ssum” relationship but officially Namjachinggu!

 

@bohmi hahahaha that was fast! I didnt even mind looking at Sec Jang’s profile when she whipped that up ! :lol: So a 6-5 uears difference then? Heck my mom is older than my dad by 6 yrs but my paternal  grandparents didnt react that way. Mom looks younger then my dad though. :wub:

@dukesa1122 In the preview, director Choi was the one who talked to JH about the hotel. He called JH naive saying that by being with him, CSH will lose the hotel.

 

I do think that HI will betray JH at some point and she will justify her action by explaining that she did it for JH's sake. HI has not been really honest with JH the entire time and we could see it in two occasions:

- the marriage: She acted as if it was a joke. She was not serious and she only views him as a close friend. But she really views him as a man and she is interested in him. JH didn't think, there was some truth in her words or proposal that's why he told her later that she was too ugly. 

- the diary: When she was standing in front of the diaries, the first one she picked up was the red diary. However, you can see that she rejects this diary as she shakes her head. Moreover, her mouth movement shows a certain dissatisfaction. Encounter 5 red diary.pngTherefore, she puts it back and takes the black diary until JH pops up. Encounter 5 HI black diary.pngThis is the expression she has, when she has the black diary in her hands. JH has not appeared yet. After his arrival, she asks JH, she acts as if she hadn't made her choice, although she definitely preferred the black diary. She puts the black diary back and asks him... and guess what: he chose the red one, the one she had taken a few moments before. She acts as if they had the same preference and they were so alike, while in reality, she has a different taste. She tried to adjust herself to him... So her betrayal will be just another lie: she will act as if she was selfless, yet she hasn't given up on him.

Today is the 3rd time I  rewatched all the eps ever since it started airing and the scenes of Jinsoo couple never failed to make me smile. How can they be this adorable? They match so well. I'm the type who never watches a drama twice, I can't pinpoint what I like about this drama that makes me keep on watching it over and over lol

 

Anyways, in ep 1 Jinhyuk left a note for Soohyun because he had to catch a train to go to the airport but Soohyun didn't see the note when she went back to the cafe. I wonder what Jinhyuk wrote there. Before they parted ways on the night they first met he said he needs to ask Soohyun something but he didn't wanna ask her that time because he needs to word it properly or something. I remember someone said they might break up in the future and then meet again in Cuba. Maybe Soohyun will see the note by then or maybe I'm just thinking too much and the note isn't that important lol

Still a few more days before ep 7 airs. Cam Wednesday pls come faster. I miss Jinsoo already haha

Hello there @jaeyongs! Haha You’re welcome to fall in line. I can’t even find any interest in watching another kdrama while waiting for Wednesday (Thats really early 2am Thursday where i live). 

 

Yes. There are scenes in cuba that haven’t been released yet (thanks to the cuban fans that snapped pictures and videos of them). So CSH reading that post it note at a later part might really happen.

Re: @bebebisous33

post about WS's manipulativeness and lack of true feeling for SH. 

 

I have to agree: There's a lot of heartache in the world. A lot of things to feel torn up about, but we have to pull ourselves together to get through our day. Don't feel much sympathy, either, for a feckless rich guy. Had not seen WS as manipulative, but your argument is persuasive.  His style except with his mother has been very opaque. I thought his conversation with the Director as they swill wine together, for example, was odd. He circles around his reason for the meeting: He never says "Back off SH, or I'll make you pay."  It's clear that his conversational "warning" to the Director has been ineffective when the guy cheerfully greets him at the golf driving range and makes it clear the attacks and plot against SH continue. One other thing that I was thinking about: When WS is overheard by SH as she buys the tie for JH, he is telling the sales rep, please choose what will make me attractive to a picky woman. He's insecure about his attractiveness. JH in his drunken scene in the car says, "Navy suit, gray suit...of course I look good in them both."  He's secure. I guess we could draw the moral that it's better to grow up with little money but lots of love, than lots of money and no love. Fortunately for many of us that's the reality. :) What a sad man WS has become.

Main reason I want SH to ruuuuun, if not into JH’s arms then at least remain in her own. I wouldn’t wish a MIL like that on anyone.

 

Then again, I wouldn’t wish SH’s mom as MIL on anyone either, especially someone as sweet as JH. So I guess one-half of our OTP will always be doomed to have an insufferable MIL :sweat:

Regarding those scenes. I would just say that they often film more scenes than what is getting into the final product. As they edit they maybe find out that it those not match with tone or other reason, so I do feel it is hard to predict what gonna happens just from fan photos... But I have been thinking that consider they are setting up that hotel in Cuba that she gonna have to travel one more time there to finish it and doing final look on it. maybe that time she gonna go there and sees that note. maybe. Another scenario of mine is that she did see that note that time, because I do feel they did not show everything that happens between her entering that caffe shop to her leaving. so when there is angst we gonna get a flashback to her reading that note. frankly i have been wondering about the note and what was it that he wanted to ask. I don´t think the writer sett it up randomly to lett it hang, so we gonna get our answer later in one way or another :)

Thanks a lot for the compliment! But I can definitely return the compliment!! :)

 

You made a great observation about director Choi. Although JWS threatened director Choi with different allusions, this didn't discourage the director Choi to attack CSH indirectly. The golf "encounter" is like you said planned by the director.  He wants JWS to meet JH. He has two reasons for this:

Either this meeting creates a conflict and JWS turns against CSH because of JH. Since director Choi knows as long as JWS stands by CSH's side, he will never become the next CEO. The other possibility is that by forcing JWS to meet JH, JWS makes it clear to JH that CSH belongs to him... his pursuit becomes more visible. If CSH remarries JWS, she will become a housewife again hence he can become the CEO. He can only gain something from the "encounter" between JWS and JH. The purpose of the golf encounter has been planned a long time ago.

 

Remember that the traitor in the PR team (forgot his name) proposed that JH took care of the VIP. This was the first step... then they asked the actors and actresses to ignore the invitation to the opening. When director Choi met JWS at the golf, he must have mentioned that the PR team was facing some troubles. He wanted JWS to meet JH so that he would feel hurt and change his mind about CSH. JWS knew very well the identity of the young man hence he went there for another purpose: show his face to JH in order to make JH feel little and uncomfortable. All this was orchestrated by director Choi, that's why the traitor gave JWS the list. By doing so, they thought that JH would realize how powerless he was because JWS could achieve what he could not. Moreover CSH is not a strong backup, compared to JWS!! And that's their mistake: they just think that JH is interested in money, power aso!!

 

@krisan Thanks for the compliment too! Honestly, I have the impression that HI and JWS are quite similar. Both of them refuse to confess their feelings, and are disguising themselves in front of the loved one because they are feeling insecure. 

Both thought that waiting was the right thing to do. Both are not honest to the loved one in the end... both hid a lot of things. They try to impress the loved one (diary, suit/dress) but fail because they are not genuine. HI has been hiding that she had been approached by a minion from chairman Kim, this was not the right thing to do.

@bebebisous33 I'm partly agree with your analyzing about WS and partly disagree with yours. While he might didn't do much to protect her while they were married and might not a good husband, i don't think he is manipulative though. He was powerless infront of his mom at that time. Now he is getting older and might have more guts to fight against his mom?? I  choose to believe he still has some good manners , the good in his heart and his love for SH is sincere.....but i must say i didn't like the way he looked at JH when he came to PR team, it was a bit uncomfortable though.

A lot of observation u guys doing here..its cool..I'm pretty much agree with some of it..this drama really makes u feel like guessing all the way,unpredictable..like cracking a riddle

 

I think in some point,the ex hubby will stand with his mother entirely,to get SH back to him,with his way..I feel like until now he still standing in 'grey' area not good,but not bad either to the point we could hate him..

N it will to bad if HI will betray JH just becz she wants to protect him,I know they are a long time friend n it's natural for her to do that,but still it will hurt JH n herself in the end..

 

N argghh I wanna punch that traitor,mr.lee if I'm not mistaken n that director,trying to get those position so cowardly like that,they are a men but act like a sissy..

 

Oh I just remember after repeated epi 6 in the scene SH father met with her ex MIL,the ex MIL said she has a prove that SH father didn't won in election in a fair way I presume?maybe it will be use as last weapon,if her plan don't go right..n SH will be put in a tight position if that is true..choosing something that really matter for us,its never easy to do..the result only come with a good or bad..

WS is not the right man for SH and HI is not the right girl for JH. Obviously because WS and HI are not the ones, the ways they expressed their feeling are not correct and they missed their timing. These are facts that we don't have to argue about because obviously this drama is about SH and JH.

 

I don't care much about HI; but with WS, it is an interesting case because how different people view him differently.

 

WS is far from a perfect guy or a behind-the-scene knight. He comes from the upper class which include rich people who normally treat people from the lower class with disdain. He knows about power, money, connection and how to get things his way. He couldn't make SH happy: he freed SH from the marriage so that she could breathe easier but she ended up with the status of a divorcee and his mom refused to release her grip. Until now, he can't break free from the cage he was put in from the beginning to have a life from himself. He still habor fruitless hope of a second chance.

 

And yet, I can't see him as manipulative or insincere in his feeling towards SH.

 

When WS requests to meet SH after the ramyeon scandal breaks out or asks her secretary friend to tell her to be careful, I see that as being curious at first and then jealous. To me, the word "eccentric" doesn't hurt SH but he purposely uses the word "date" to test her reaction. Obviously WS can't tell SH indirectly because he chose to hurt her when he asked for a divorce and made himself a bad guy; what rights does he have towards her to tell her to be careful or not? His image in SH's eyes is already too bad that even giving her a dress becomes a burden and he doesn't even know what to say. WS knows too well how his mom will try to rob the hotel away from SH so any scandal can cost her; I see no problem when he tries to alert SH through her friend.

 

Love itself many faces and one of it is selfishness. Since WS has not been able to let go, must he be happy now that SH finds a guy she likes? Especially when that relationship can cost SH the hotel she has been working so diligently for and the guy she chooses is so ordinary, unable to help her fight for it? What's is JH's motive, is he a gold-digger or is he sincere? What does JH have that he doesn't? It surely takes time before WS can realize that JH is the one that makes SH happy and she is finally fighting for her own life, away from the invention of others. I can't expect him to realize it now.

 

SH receives the hotel and money as alimony - don't forget that she asked for it herself, knowing full well that Taekyeong is its mother company. "When an unfortunate circumstance arises and tarnishes the image of Taekyeong Group, Dongwha Hotel  will be returned to Taekyeong Group. All of this will be decided by the Board of Directors." - she read that clause and still decide to sign the contract. Why didn't she just change to a huge sum of money instead and not the hotel, then she can have more freedom? I see no proof that WS knows about the contract before he tries to make SH divorce him or he has a say in it. If she simple chooses money, her obligations probably stops at attending her ex-MIL only. Even if she use money to start a business and Taekyeong Group still tries to interfere in it, there is no way the group has a deciding fate in her business like it is now. Sorry to say but SH has her fair share of responsibility in how she is still tied with Taekyeong Group. 

 

There are two scenes about WS that I remember:

 

- The determination in WS when he angrily tells his mom to leave the hotel alone. He knows well how the hotel means to SH and he can't let her effort be robbed away from her. Later, he even told the "bad" director how he doesn't deserve that hotel. 

 

- His face when looking at SH's photo for match-making in his phone. 4 years since the divorce and he still keeps it. Looking at his lonely back is sad.

 

WS is not a perfectly good guy but I don't want to judge him negatively before I can see enough flashback. Is the marriage failed because of his fault only? Or did SH ever open up to him and love him? What made him decide to become to cheater to SH?

WS is not a perfectly good guy but I don't want to judge him negatively before I can see enough flashback. Is the marriage failed because of his fault only? Or did SH ever open up to him and love him? What made him decide to become to cheater to SH?  

Actually, her alimony was the failing hotel. Donghwa Hotel was on the verge of bankruptcy. CSH said that she had to take loans (episode 6, during the walk) in order to support the hotel. When she asked for the hotel, she thought that chairman Kim would be glad to get rid of that failing business. But you are right, these are just speculations on my part. In my opinion, by asking for the hotel as alimony, she wanted to leave the impression that she never married JWS in order to take advantage of his wealth. By not asking for money was a way to show that she is not greedy and cunning.

As for the fair share of responsability, I have to disagree with you. Chairman Kim would have never agreed to the divorce, if CSH had not accepted the divorce contract. CSH told her secretary, if she had protested about any clause, then Chairman Kim would have never agreed to the divorce. Chairman Kim had such a contract written in order to discourage her from leaving her son. That was the point, she thought thatby threatening her like that, CSH would give up. Kim has the impression that CSH is just like her mother but she is not. Worth, wealth and power don't matter to her.
