  1. Isn't it ironic that WS in a fit of rage killed AJR, starting from her refusal to divorce Mo, but Mo went to the house to tell her the real artist that he chose the fake artist, mother of his children. He did not have to do anything but suck up to his father. Tsk tsk.
  2. I haven't seen too many great endings for k dramas. This one is like an afterthought. YD's mother was not helping at all to get her release, was she? If she had confided in her son what Han promised her, maybe he could have focused on the three from the beginning instead of waiting for the cctv. I have no problem with the kiss, but it would have been better without it. Handholding and meaningful looks should be more than enough when a pair had not met or kept in touch for a 'few' years. On a scale of 1-10, I would give a five for this episode.
  3. The writer just had to spoil our ending. He/she knows that among the three WS would be our favourite. So we still don't know how Han is caught?
  4. I knew it, I knew it, it is not incest. So gross, just too gross. My prediction is that Ha caused AJR's death. WS knew she did it when Han asked him if he killed AJR. We will be dangled with suspicions that WS did it, only to find out it was his mother in the last episode. We must not forget she was a nurse, so probably used that to her advantage. The actress is really not attractive. How could the son of the manor mess around with a nurse, looks like her, not just having one kid but two? I want to see the latest judge corrupted by Han to be caught too. Wonder how they are going to arrest the TOP employees. Maybe they will escape too with Han?
  5. That's not good. Too many lame brain characters and the usual amnesiac lost heiress theme, no wonder nobody warns to talk about it. Thank you for the bottomline. Hang in there, I want to know how it ends. So will be back later.
  6. How is this show? Five pages after 50 plus episodes?? Not that I want to watch it very much after watching the last episode. The main actress slapped the main actor for suggesting something against the bad woman whom I presume was the evil stepmother. Now slapping is very common in KDs but omg she slapped him, then no anger nothing in her face or reaction, just a scrunching of the face and she continued to talk to him!! Such bad acting or bad script. A pity for the actress since I saw in her in Teacher Oh Soon Nam, the second actress had clearly overshadowed her. It was as if she was the second actress. Is the woman doctor going to do the same to her? Poor woman. Maybe she's not ready for prime time.
  7. I did not have to watch many episodes to keep up with the story ... you all are just my kind of forummers. But after the shocking birth secret, I just had to watch at least the last episode. So we have an extra dysfunctional family, there is a murder, incest, cross-dresser, polygamy... goodness this cannot be K drama, it is almost one of those sleazy dramas not from Korea. Really, a father in law is like a father, I call it incest. And he looks awfully old to have a 30 something daughter. My moral compass wants SH to be the daughter of another woman - does not have to be Han. The father has been determined but the mother is an assumption. I still have faith in the Korean audience expectations.
  8. This is an ok episode. Saturday's episode is definitely the climactic one for me but it is good that the finale ties up loose ends. The flashbacks and time leap are there for the KD stamp. Seeing HM being dragged away is no longer fun, it does not seem to matter at the end. I am very sure the actress has enjoyed the moment very much. JB being happy at last is a nice touch. MS goes back to work? Poor DB has to wait for her harried mum all over again. Thank you everyone for the company and the chats. Although others have thanked @larus, I'd like to add mine too. Hope to catch up in other forums. Au revoir.
  9. Chairman Han is lying unconscious in hospital with HM et family in the room. IS came in and told the others to leave. She handed HM and envelop which looked like photos inside. Long angry dialog. Then the Chairman woke up which meant he heard what those two had been hiding. I thought he might have another attack but I don't think so. MH got married in the huge sleeves. Not too bad looking. Just after the ceremony, uncle's band was about to play, JB came dashing in and he sang a song - quite badly, not too shabby for a non-singer though. Then the market ladies started dancing, followed by SJ and others. We saw SJ having the time of her life. MH and WJ were on their way to their honeymoon when she said something. Then we saw her outside her mum's house. Looked like she was scolded for not going on her honeymoon. That was a good scene. All 3 girls slept with their mum, arguing and fighting each other. SJ lived her life for her children and she died with them next to her.
  10. She is 9 years older? And the MH is actually 26 when I googled. Some excused her overacting for her age but I have watched younger actresses who were excellent. I have not watched KSY before, maybe for a few episodes in IRIS. Why do they use that very red lipstick? It is too strong for her and it made her look older I think. I think HJH has a lovely smile, it changes his look completely. That is why he could play bad characters as in scarlet heart. The Koreans seem to put a lot of importance on ranking by age, and I saw my sister something with Lee Bo Young which seemed forced in their interactions. I hastened to add that it was very popular and I am quite bad in choosing dramas. I think I am going to watched old shows for a while. Rewatched all about mom.
  11. Thank you both. I like detective plus a bit of supernatural like the guest. Enjoyed that greatly. But melo stuff are ok too. Afraid I became the 'critical' viewer for many shows eg. The unknown woman. I still find it funny. But once I start watching, it is so very difficult to drop. I don't have too much imagination, so in Gangnam beauty, I could not imagine her to be an 18 year old freshman. I didn't find her pretty at all. Had to drop that. I don't like noona dramas. Mother of mine is not really a noona drama. MR is more mature and she does look older to me than TJ. I think it's because she is thin and her face lacks fat. But she is very good looking and her character is a capable career woman which I really like. More importantly, we did not get much of the noble idiot in this show, except for an episode or two. So will take a sneak at your recommendations @lebeaucouple
  12. HM was getting careless with her toyboy and IS confronted them at a club in some episode earlier. HM decided to leak the IS-MR secret to her regular leaky-reporter when TJ-IS called for a board meeting to takeover Hansung corp. With all the cafuffle, media, shouting etc., MR collapsed. Then SJ left her sickbed to confront the old man.
  13. What is the next drama going to be? I had watched Arthdale Chronicles but can't muster enough energy for this part. There are so many strange names and so difficult to remember, I need to keep going back to the first page to see who the character is. Shady Mom has an airhead and a lame brain for the main OTP it seems from the forum. Although I do want to watch Dae Jang Geum's mother. Anyway still a few more weeks of SJ and company. I think they will give her 3 more years and we will get the obligatory time leap in the last episode. @larus did you see any baby actors for this show?
  14. SJ really gave it to the Chairman. She told him that he almost killed her unborn grand child - causing him to choke snd splutter again- and he was not going to see her daughter or grandchild. The best part was when she threatened to take him with her when she died in 3 months. His face was really something to watch. After telling him what she thought of him, in the drive back with MS, SJ and MS both tried to come to terms with SJ's chemo. IS and MR bore the brunt of the leaked secret but TJ told IS to proceed with the shareholders meeting while he handled the press. More lovey dovey stuff between WJ and MH. I still don't care for that couple but it is good that the writer kept them formal with each other. They just knew each other for a short while anyway. JB refused to go away..... he is back helping uncle unload things for the restaurant. MH forgot her shift at the hospital and SJ spent the night alone. IS did visit her. MS and others realised that SJ wanted to go home and it looked like she did in the preview. I was rather reluctant to watch the episodes since melodrama was rife last week. It was much better, with touching scenes rather than tears galore - SJ and MS at the lake for example. The preview showed the family on an outing, smiling and laughing. Could be SJ's swansong.
  15. Does anyone know the ratings for this show? From this forum, the chat rate looks sad. Four pages? I have been checking the forum to see how it goes after watching the first episode. The actress was in Teacher Oh Soon Nam and the forum was even sadder. I think I was chatting with one other person for 2/3 of the show. She was also a misplaced child but suffering from amnesia. If not careful, she is going to be typecast. Anyway, she had lived in the US for 30 years and her English? They should use Japan, at least they could dub it. In other shows like the Gangnam beauty, secret romance or the tailor show which I found boring or ridiculous or something from the beginning... it turned out to be wildly popular with Soompians. Not this one. Maybe the theme is too cliched? Or the English? I really want to see how this actress acts here. She was really bad with her otp partner in OSN, the other forummer said she cringed when he touched her. It was that obvious. Hopefully, she can show more romantic feelings to the hero here. Although he looked a bit old.
