  1. Hi ladies, I'm here too! I been following this drama, which quite refreshing for me after the previous drama. This drama captured my heart because of the story line and of course the actors and actress. We still have a long way to go and I can't wait what the writer has in her sleeves I hope not too much cliche - common plots in kdrama land. Anyway, I always love everybody's analysis here and with all the predictions. I can't wait for the next episode to come.
  2. I have no complain for this drama. It made me and my son laugh, kind of seeing ourselves in extreme portrayal (we did skipped the sad parts). I always enjoy reading all your posts. See you all in other thread. And Happy Chinese new Year!
  3. Hi chingus, I watched today episode even though I know there will be heartache for me because of dumb and dumber’s action, and the breakup. I will write more tomorrow, as for now, I have a feeling that KDR will quit her job and continue her studies. It’s just my feeling, because she can use the nasty treatment from WDR mother as a push to achieve her dream and show them (WDR mom and DY) that she can get a better career and position in this world without the Wang’s company.
  4. I tried to keep on being a silent reader here, after my last post in this thread, but can’t help it to write something now. I totally with @tali58 @Lawyerh @ardently and @dramaninja I did not like this drama, watched it to support SKJ and big mistake. I don’t see worshipping depression and hardship in life as something for you to be selfish, all about you and only you, when you happily married not even a single letter or call to your ex boyfriend, and when you depressed suddenly he is on speed dial? She was nice by going to the blind date? No, she’s not, because she left the guy rudely. This was the trigger for the breakup between JY and SE. SE was wrong by suggesting the blind date, but she agreed to it and smiled (I wonder the meaning behind the smile). If she was nice and sincere at least she could finish the meal and tell the guy thank you but she had to apologized as currently she has no intention of having a serious relationship. JY being still in love with her, was angry and dismayed that SE dare to set the love of his live for a blind date, how dare she (this is my interpretation of his deep anger), it’s not a trust matter, it’s because he still love her deeply. I was and still struggling with depression, not a beautiful part of life. (I wrote this because I know there will be comments what this person know about depression). I have a depressed bipolar mother too. But most of us do not have this me and me alone attitude. For JY, it’s ok to dump your fiance a day before the parents meetup, waste her time because you were touched by her effort and you think you could love her. You cared and spend your time with her, it can turned to love, even you know that you still wholeheartedly love another person (for me, he didn’t keep his love in a little part of his heart, he keep his love with all his heart). I don’t buy his tears, why he need to cry, he cried because of his parents not because of breakup from SE. As I mentioned before, not funny to portray people with the disorder as on the first few episodes and miraculously he live normally when he on the second charm period, no consistency at all by writer, bad writing. Good thing I didn’t spent 100% of my time on this drama, even with SKJ on screen, it’s just too hard to bear. I would have appreciate the drama better if suicide scene changed to bravely face your “mistake” and hand in hand work it out with your spouse. Suicide? That’s shallow, also showing the viewer that you are alone in Korean society, no friend to talk to but your boyfriend. What happen to the good old friendship, a friend with a shoulder to lean on? And I also agree with knetz, this writer and director should not make any more drama. First love never die? I feel bad for the youngsters who watch this drama, some of them might or already keep this concept in their mind, this is the love story that they want and expect for their life. I know because I deal with those youngsters who keep all the dating information from kdrama as reference to their real life, and they took it by heart disregard all logic. And I’m ready for those who love this drama with all their heart to flame me but I need to get this out of my chest (we are allowed to agree to disagree right?). SKJ should pick his next project carefully.
  5. I think if evil prosecutor only do the killing of the child, she might didn’t know the child she killed had been switched, as the victim and EJ’s sister same age - I assumed around the same build and it’s dark too in that forest. It’s kind of ironic for the real Ms Ma to die like that, she trying to get the most from both our Ms Ma and husband but end up being killed. I also hope for our Ms Ma to live a new life as Ms Ma the writer after she cleared her name and find the killer, she will be happy with WJ, MS and EJ.
  6. @maribella now all started to become clear for me, why Ms Kim hate Mdm Na so much. Being substitute to receive bad luck and left to die, these two already enough revelation for her revenge for me. I still don’t like how Ms Kim did her revenge though, such a cruel mother to do that to her own daughter. I think Moon’s family obsessed with CR because they hate to see her with EH (lower status person, and Moon Jr lose from him?), Moon Sr also feel she useful seeing she capable of running the company and he need to take advantage of it until come the time to “remove” her, he know Makepacific’s employee respected her and she even help to run/solved the problem his own construction company on early episodes. Boy I’m glad to skipped some episodes @maribella that’s why I missed the DNA testing part LOL, I rewatched 2 specific episodes, else I will still have headache, all thanks to you chingu
  7. @gutibear I have the same thought too, we had the same suspect. My problem is in the beginning I can’t think of any motive, in my simple mind the motive must be some kind of promotion for the killer at work (and of course fame), money and greed always the first motive for killing, followed by love. Second suspect is the husband, he fit with love as motive. And I remember some of you have theory the daughter still alive, I have the same thought too and it means the husband very good in keeping her away from society in their life circle. I hope more revelation coming, and yes the detective is stu... LOL he played it well here, maybe because he always act as villain in other drama/movies so he can bring this stubborn detective character to live.
  8. @Ameera Ali I like YEH since Vineyard Man, I watched it when I was pregnant and some laugh never fail to help me with my miserable days back then. You should check her past works, some quite interesting. I don’t really care what she did to her face, it’s her decision and it’s dog eat dog world up there, one must stay in shape else lose out. She got good personality (based on her co-star’s interviews) and it’s good enough for me. I did concern about her big trouble few years ago, I worry she will never return to our screen! Now with this new project, I’m relief that she’s back, plus the story line is light for a faint hearted prone to screaming ahjumma like me
  9. @shebagirl exactly my thought, why slap JH and scream at him, blamed him, and that stu... (pardon my language) KY just stand there with her golden mouth kept shut. Likewise, they really deserve all of the incidents. I annoyed too with how cold the Kangs when they hear about Emily’s and JH predicament/“accidents” caused by SN. And KY never once open her mouth to tell the truth about the kidnapping today, what’s so difficult to explain to her family she been kidnapped and JH not DY murderer, he tried to help them despite his injuries...gosh. I doubt KY will wise up after this incident, SN much more advance than her.
  10. I’m not sure about the daughter, Secretary Kim has a lot of secrets it seems and she started to reveal it to viewers. About the daughter, maybe I’m wrong but she didn’t mentioned any name, the shaman too only said the girl - the girl and the girl (who is this girl), aaaaa my head dizzy thinking about all the possibilities LoL. @sava2sava Lee Yoori as usual showed her solid acting skill here, I kind of like the drama minus some silly plots in between, but hey, I’m still here. If you have time to spare you could try to watch this one, in the middle the plots were as usual a little bit of company problem, a fight for her love and her “family”. I don’t like grandma, and seems she hurt so many people in the past (including Secretary Kim perhaps). @maribella I’m waiting for a big twist too, and hoping for a “fair” ending for us viewers.
  11. @celebrianna @sava2sava Somehow I have a feeling this drama has few missions, trying to change the stigma of an ex-convict and giving the caregiver of dementia’s patients a heads up. Both are difficult and sensitive subject and not only need family to be strong and open minded, also need society to be one as well. Previous drama already open up the door to this sort of “new” knowledge and they need to push it to another level. In my country we have a lot of programmes for ex-convict to integrate to society and most of us especially the youngsters are okay with it l, the elder still divided but they somehow on the level of accepting now. I think that’s what the writer aim with the drama. I just hope there are no super sad scenes ahead, the last tears I dropped caused me a quite sick week, please writer-nim, don’t give us a super sad heartbreaking scene(s). @msaamia you will hooked more after episode 20 By the way, I like how grandma pulled DY’s mother’s hair too! Don’t mess with grandma!
  12. @jayakris I believe JE back to DG’s arms, they must have been together in DS’ house @joke lanfoo @sivaneson That’s my point, kidnapping is serious crime, even not done with your own hands. In some country it carry death penalty. I’m an avid audience of korean show, not only kdrama, and they do have a lot of law and regulations, but somehow...I can’t comment further else some of you will take my comment as a baseless rant again Been a while since I read comments from @UnniSarah @sava2sava and some other chingus that I can’t name (sorry, my memory starting to fail me-maybe I also got amnesia or dementia just like most of the drama’s plot LOL). I will miss you and the others too! Hope to see you again in another drama (not the next dailies for me though).
  13. @sava2sava @jayakris I’ve been wathing kdrama since 90s and this time the writer really pushing the ridiculous unlawfulness in kdrama to the new level. In other drama we would see at the end of the drama there will be retribution for the criminal, even having amnesia or few weeks in jail. And vigilante from the characters in other drama are always fun, thrilling to watch, however this time JH only asked SH go to police and confess LOL. Woohooo, after a slap here comes the suicide rescue scene. And the kicking HN out from EA’s house really happened, because she has golden heart and consideration to the elders, she learnt to accept the sudden changes (the quality I like from her). Anyone buying SH’s crocodile tears? She crying only because her daughter is in danger, not because she regretted what she did. @joke lanfoo @girrlitas some mentioned above, welcome to kdrama LoL I wonder what is the meaning of HG’s mum’s face on preview
  14. I kind of dislike the scene where EA leaving HN at JH’s house, it’s the same scene I witnessed when my mum sent my cousin to her mum (my aunt). It’s painful enough for my cousin to be separated from my mum and us the cousins even after a long prep talk given by my parents to her, because we were the family she knew, and my mum is her mum (she called my mum as mummy too), and I’m sure it’s really shocking for HN. HN barely know anything and no prep talk albeit she’s an adult but EA simply drop her off and leave her there? It’s wrong, HN didn’t has her memory back, and JH obviously foreign to her despite her admiration of JH regarding work. I don’t like this scenario given by writer, but I have so many dislike on the scenes in this drama LOL. 2 more days for the scheming from SH, and we going to have sudden ending, as I wrote before, picture of HG HN wedding, maybe babies from whoever, no one will be taken by law enforcement to take responsibility, HG mother will be super sweet to HN and act as if nothing happened, it’s ok to hire thugs to kidnap a person and hurt them in Korea, it’s ok to try to run over someone there, and many others incidents what a scary portrayal of a country’s law (wrong portrayal by writer-I simply unable to accept it until end of the drama). I’m sorry for ranting, I know I should be happy after today’s episode, but hard to be happy with this kind of ending possibility. Someone need to edit all the wiki page, asian wiki and wiki and all other related page, please change the lead actor and actress, and change the the description of the drama. This drama should be about SH, JE and DG, with second lead JH and DS, and special appearance by HG and HN I will continue my rant on Thursday after I watch episode 120 and hopefully I won’t any final rant on Friday.
  15. Exactly my thought when I wacthed this drama for the first 4 episodes. It make me feel lose interest because it’s too tragic and cruel for Mr Kang and Do Ran. Oh well, if it started to get super sad, I just going to skip some episodes. @nohamahamoud2002 I continue watching because of the father and daughter’s relation too! Maybe because I’m very close to my late father, and I see many similar traits of him in Mr Kang, for example: good interaction with children, patience and most important stylish! LOL I really wish that he didn’t really kill that man (some of you pointed about shame, I thinking about shame of taking the money and cause someone to lost his life - but he was not the one who stab the man). And her foster mother, she did snapped at DR but she raised her, for us who are mother, we know how it felt to take raise a child, even not our own flesh and blood deep in our heart she still our child. I think it applies to DR’s foster mother too. I know looking at flow of story now, slim chance for DR to pursuit her Law Degree, but I’d really wish writer give DR a chance to make her dream come true.
  16. @sushilicious @MrsYeoWoon Strange, I am ready with the possibility of either HP or Matteo getting killed but I can’t accept writer-nim killed YG. He’s a kind person that always be there for his “hyung” and others, why writer-nim, why? I practically skipped the part YG died, it’s not fair, I almost cried because of it. From all the ghost related Korean movies/dramas I watched (please correct me if I’m wrong) never I see a shaman or priest success in killing a ghost, they only able to hide it, seal it in a room for someone to open the seal again in future and history will be repeated. I’m hoping to see something different here, but I won’t keep my hope high.
  17. @joke lanfoo@sava2sava I love Wang Family too! I always watched it despite my super busy schedule at that time. After this one, I will take a break (again) from dailies, it’s too tiring, the dragging, the naive stereotypes until to the level of not smart at all as a person, I need to rest my heart and brain to avoid turn into one LOL. I will stick to my weekend drama and few 16 episodes drama. Now we on the last 5 episodes, from the preview for today’s episode there are no revelation, no decisive outcome from JH. I foresee we will only see HG and HN’s wedding picture on the table on the last episode, SH and JE go crazy after all the stress and hysteria they had from episode 1 which will bring them to mental institute on the last episode. DG will nurse JE and wait for her, YR living with EA, HN will be “shared” by two mothers and suddenly have real grandma who love her, and short scenes of HG’s mother feel embarrass in front of JH (but still in her heart her hatred to HN exist). Anything I missed? No jail, no police involved, writer expecting us the viewer to feel sad for SH and JE for warded in mental institute (but it’s not working on me, no pity for these two regardless the type of punishment they received unless it’s a jail time, clearly SH is the criminal and JE is the accomplice).
  18. @jimha @mysteryoflife I believe Park Han Na will appear again, we only at around a quarter of 100 episodes. I’m not big fans of her (but my son like her) but I have to admit she is a hardworking actress and quite good playing evil character, which very tiring. Me and my sisters always wonder how those actress can continue acting, all the screaming, scheming, fake tears, our respect for them. If any of you watch telenovelas, there are few characters there in the 90s that keep screaming too. Too bad weekend drama normally no such hysterical scenes. Back to our drama, Mrs Wang made big mistake, I can’t stop thinking about her taking grandma’s necklace, it’s theft, it’s not hers. I hope in future the writer stop portrayed a perfect daughter in-law requirements : beautiful, from same status, elegant in some nasty way (somehow they thought it’s what elegant is), regardless their brain, education and heart. I/We have been seeing these since early 2000s, WRITER-NIM please read my message, time to change! Stop showing how shallow Korean family to whole world. 20 over years are enough. I’m looking forward to see Do Ran back to school and get her Law Degree, and practicing law. A prosecutor will be the best. I thinking the person DY’s mother bring to Wang’s family will be DR’s impersonator. She wearing brown color cardigan/jacket with same body build as DR. forgive me, but for this once I’d like to see grandma teaching all of them a good lesson, how dare they trying to make her “Myeong Hee” disappear again.
  19. Hi ladies (and gentlemen perhaps?), I’m stopping by and can’t help but noticed that quite numbers of you watched My golden life which I skipped as I can’t bear myself to continue watching it for some reasons. I tried to watch this one slowly too because I don’t want to watch an overly sad drama on weekend. I’m settling down now and watching this one . Some thoughts from me: 1. I like double DR interaction, not so overwhelming and acceptable 2. I like Mr Wang, he is kind and appreciate his employees, but he kind of too soft to DY by apologized to her (I believe he said an apology), which unacceptable for me. He need to be firm, especially to such immature woman (I won’t call her lady because I still carry a lady definition from early 1900s). I hope I won’t see it again from him in future though. 3. I love grandma when she back to her younger days, always hilarious. 4. Mrs Wang, just because DY is her best friend’s daughter doesn’t mean she can pampered and continue to treat her like a princess. She is kind but taking side to such spoilt brat, big mistake. She is supporting DY’s behaviour, today she took grandma’s necklace and give it to DY (correct me if I’m wrong here, as my eyesight and memory not as perfect as before but I’m sure from the conversation between her and Mr Wang, it belong to grandma). 5. DR mother and sister, both need to grow up. They are the only part that I hate from this drama because it’s kind of reminder of my own life . Both of them now working, and I hope they change in the next episode (while mine never change after 20 years hahahaha, I hope DR will have a changed mother and sister at least). 6. Mr Kang (DR father), I dislike him at first because on early episode he always made me shed tears (he is one of the reason why I’m afraid to watch the drama - too sad!). After few weeks, the storyline grew and I decided to continue, and I like his calmness, patience although still sad when I watched the scenes if his interaction with DR. Lastly, I really hate to see a newlywed who runaway from their in-laws or their marital home after a simple argument, didn’t they know? When you are married, stop being such a baby, grow up! Especially for brat gold digger like DY (yes, in my eyes she is a gold digger, her mother’s house was partly paid by her aunt, and she go crazy for jewelleries and Wang’s family wealth). DY mother will reap what she sow from her dearest daughter (I hope to see this). Uee, I feel she is overly thin in this drama, I missed her previous look even though I’m not a big fans, but I feel a little concern about her. The thread a little quiet because just like me, some of us are waiting the progress before start attaching our heart to this drama.
  20. @stroppyse Have you forgotten how deeply DG love JE? He will do everything for her, like old saying rip his heart open for her too! He didn’t budge after all the evil stuff JE did to HN whom he claimed “as close as real sister”. Any normal person will upset and think on his relationship with such evil woman, but, but not DG who given all his heart, life and soul to JE. He kind of short memory and (sorry) dimwit (at least in my eyes - even my young boy feel the same). @howa High five chingu! I would go crazy too even if it’s only a piece of chocolate went missing. How dare he/she wat my chocolate! We should be sharing the same character, I still can’t fathom on how HN’s brain works starting from the almost run by car (by JE), I thought I’m the only one who still keep the “grudge” over it. Back to pregnancy thing, my Korean friends always voice unhappiness too on how kdrama portray the couple and the people around them treat pregnancy, it put pressure on the men because wifes now have certain expectation on what the men have to do, family have to do (this from the men’s point of view), meanwhile the ladies unhappy to be portrayed as weak and needy person (in reality, like we all know, they work, take care the household, those staying with in-laws also need to be mindful and do the necessary for the in-laws), kdrama also always portray them controlling their husband, whereas some of my friends especially those above 40 yrs old saying that in their household no such thing as wife controlling their husband in any part of their life. I wish to see future kdrama which portray at least pregnancy as what real life is, because it’s clear that we will not see real life portrayal of law enforcement and medical practice/knowledge on any future kdramas, I have to keep reminding myself that slapping and do crimes are okay only exist in kdrama.
  21. @howa I agree with HN having Stockholm syndrome, but she also has short memory. Today JE screamed and cursed at her, she already forgotten within minutes , ignorance is a bliss! @selen4ever I had already keep in my mind that our OTP only a 4th lead couple in this drama. First couple is JE-DG, second is SH and husband, third is JH and DS, fourth is HN-HG. I hope I can see any one of HN and HG in other drama as real lead character. I see potential in HN, if given a chance (or chances) with good director, she could be the next Lee Yoo Ri (I’m big fan of Lee Yoo Ri). I watched today’s episode with my son and we can’t understand how easy the thief did his stint and we can’t help but to suspect the woman who created ruckus was paid by either JE or SH. My son too always compare the other dailies that I sometimes watched with The Promise (we watched it with all our heart at that time and he could catched a dailies plot in few glances.
  22. @viyra I shared the same thought, this one going on the same path as First Love Again it seems (which quite unpleasant to watch everyday). @sava2sava In my opinion, this type of plot really liked by the audience in Korea and giving high ratings to the TV station. I find the same plot everywhere these past few years with some changes here and there. It’s quite boring, hence I did not watch most of them as I did before. I just reading the recap and opinion here and sometimes checking on the drama few times in two weeks so I’d like to thank all of you who keep me updated.
  23. Who agree with me that we might see another The Promise ending here? Maybe this time we will have double amnesia combo for SH and JE. Anyone do some calculation on how much airtime for JE and SH? Obviously they got more airtime than HN and HG/JH combined because seems all dailies now showed the whole world that it’s ok to be evil and hurting other people, no law enforcement will arrest and get them hold accountable for all their misdeed, all it need was a shock or an accident and off she goes to amnesia world (and of course after it happen she will become the sweetest and most kind person in the world). After all the dragging now the writter suddenly speed up and cut a lot of scenes, the only bonus for those who are fans of kiss/hug from HN and HG from yesterday episode was only given a hug scene
  24. Hi Ladies! I’m here in this thread! I love this drama, since I’m an avid fans of K-horror movies. This drama has bring the horror on tv screen to the next level. The last time I felt so thrilled watching a horror drama was when I watched Coma. This drama not scary (for me) but interesting and I like how the writer write the story, it keeps me in suspense all the time. I can’t wait to see the next episode and as always, looking forward to read all your theories
  25. @darr Honey, as I mentioned on my previous post, kdrama seriously need to stop all the nonsense. They showed whole world that there are no law in Korea, be it in police force, medical practice and other law related profession/entity. I have watched kdrama, dailies or short series or movies since 1990s, hardly seen law enforcement or what we would expect from a police force when crime happened (maybe only on certain drama where the main story lies on police force/law enforcement). Back to this drama, i don’t see I can give any compliment to this drama at all. Maybe I’m just too old to be bother with the kissing scenes Anyone know who is the writer? I’d like to avoid his/her/their future work
