  1. Glad that PS knows DoRa is alive, the writers gave us that at least - hopefully he keeps the secret until her memories come back ...hope we get some quality time with them getting to know each other in this new constellation - PS gets a second chance to make up for doubting DR- second chances are so rare in real life With all the lightness, the suicide aspect is a very dark, serious one, still triggering for me - wonder how they will handle it - in the US or UK, they would have to have a sensitivity notice on such a story - So much time is wasted with MaRi's crush story, they are ruining this previously delightful creature , mishandling a character with her condition - just to force PS's bio mom's hand, with her family - including dad- acting like cackling hens Notice a lot of uneven editing, wonder if there has been a more than usual time pressure on production, maybe some unexpected shuffling in the story
  2. I had been enjoying this drama, really like leads, especially the FL who is doing her best to bring layers to her character, but I am so upset about the misogyny, the melodrama, forcing a situation where the FL is going to sell herself to a psycho because of the debt her less than intelligent mother put her in ...DoRa's character up until now, would not do that. She would not do a nude shoot...It is as if writers do not respect the characters they create, or maybe they are pushed to write that way by the male dominated industry that does not respect women - too many get away in real life with abusing women , especially actresses ... That the rich parents would also push their 12yr old in 24yr old body daughter MaRi to marry a slimy older guy is way too disturbing - how can the writers get away with this?! It was expected that DoRa's hard earned career was going to be brought down by her mother, but I had hoped it would be about how the FL gets back on her feet -not by selling herself, but by showing us her grit, together with her first love - This all could have been a wonderful fun story of healing, of people accepting each other as whole imperfect beings - but producers seem to want women to be stuck in a past where sick little boys get away with abuse -and women have to play along. What is it with this forced marriage recurring theme?! Drama wants to make women characters unlikeable, though almost all characters are getting unlikeable and storyline right now it is just another repeat of horrible daily dramas with too many nasty caricatures ...because dramas say something about our societies and unless the yuck factor keeps growing, I may continue to watch, with lots of fast-forwarding, to see what this one will say - also, because I did like the leads & a couple other characters
  3. Don’t want to make excuses for the bad writing, directing and the late bringing in of this storyline of dad needing a liver transplant, but since such transplants are feared, many Kdramas try to put them in. Even though they have the donors often get sick afterwards, usually coma, which is very discouraging, it seems in this one that HS will not get sick but disappear, oh my… Since one’s partner has a say in what one does legally, healthwise, it’s understandable that HS makes this decision on her own, without sharing with TH - still, it can only cause a rift between the couple. If there were more time, one could really have the characters explore their different layers, have another arc worth watching, as they find each other again, trying to heal from the family trauma. but this is not it, nor is there much time -this series wasted so much time, good characters, good plot lines, that went nowhere! Is there going to be the obligatory one year, two yesr jump -TH goes away without HS? Will we not see that a couple, even with this major event, can find a way to work together, to face things together, to build a foundation of love and trust? Or are they going to trash the relationship that they built up for the viewers in 49 episodes, in just one last dumb episode? Really frustrated with writers, producers, that seem to mess up the characters they build, and don’t even understand or care about the characters they have presented for the viewers, or the storylines - really makes it seem like AI is not only writing, but directing. No heart, no soul
  4. Sadly, so far, it’s just another K drama that wants to discourage Women from taking leading positions in business, not just the rich ladies, but any lady striving to get to the top of the business world. In Korea, there are so few women at the top of any thing regarding business and money - it may be that those few are just as ruthless as their silly little boy counterparts, but it is quite the trend in K dramas to always make the ladies look worse. So far this series is no different. In this story the common husband is, of course, much more ‘qualified’ and human as the woman, who is ruthless and heartless, and therefore also not the better business woman -although, exactly those qualities are what men are praised for … viewers are often unaware, or don’t want to see, the subliminal messages of many of these dramas, in an increasingly more conservative controlled country - yet, so many women are trying to stand up for their own rights and businesses run by women often in the world are better run Will be interesting to see if the series improves
  5. I have been enjoying this drama very much until the last episode. I think Jang Nara is doing a wonderful job. I thought the arc of the Hubby, having an affair as an act of revenge and then discovering how wrong he was, would bring the possibility for them to work things out in the future and was looking forward to this couple finding a happy ‘continuing’, if not ending. Killing him off is so anti-climatic, and the rest of the episode was stuck in boring corporate sculduggery , the usual Kdrama fare -most of the secondary characters cannot carry the suspense that had started in the beginning episodes. The other ML also just does not have the weight or the chemistry with our FL and certainly hope they are not trying to bring them together. Don’t know if the writer just lost their way or if there was pressure from the producing side or wherever, but I will watch to see if it picks up again - or will this promising drama just be totally spoiled….
  6. I am enjoying this drama, although coming from classical music, like most things in drama world, it’s yeah, not a real picture, and yes, it’s a bit too melo-drama at times, however, I really like Lee Young-ae. I have always admired her as an actress and she does not disappoint here. The whole cast is very good, a consistent mood, the directing, the cinematography -really enjoyed the scene where she’s not sure if she’s feeling the drops of water coming down, before the whole ceiling rains down with the sprinkler system gone awry …
