  1. @sava2sava, thanks for the information. As bad as it might be for JH, hopefully it will lead to getting rid of the contract wife. Yeah, I know I’m too single-minded on the need to get rid of the contract wife but I truly cannot stand her. I really want to relish watching SN get take down. Her arrogance really annoys me. It’s about time she get what is coming to her.
  2. I watched the subbed episode and from the English subs I don’t get that anything is holding the contract wife back from letting go of JH. She clearly just wants to cling to him because she still believes that she can’t live without him. She told GY that she (GY) is living without JH just fine. So, I guess the contract wife is going to continue to cling to JH whom she knows and admits does not love her. She said that she’s the wife on paper and GY is the woman with his child and I guess they will have to fight against each other. I say JH need to take care of this problem of his clingy contract wife but he’s busy elsewhere. GY finally asks JH if the contract wife has something on him and if that’s why he won’t divorce her. She told him that Sena told her and he denied that the contract wife has something on him. He would even make me believe it if I hadn’t heard the contract wife threaten him twice about it. I was surprised when GY’s father told her mother that JH should be around I guess to protect the house because he felt safe when JH showed up after what happened. He said something like it would be nice that when he come to the restaurant he would say he’s home instead and go into the room next door to sleep with his child. I guess he’s seeing the value of having him around. GY really let Jung have it in a roundabout way. When she was done with him he finally decided he doesn’t want her as a niece-in-law. I just love how GY brought up YB City and that it was built on the grave of her father-in-law whom she respected. It really got under mafia Chairman ‘s skin that she asked for that much as a price for marriage. He decided to disown her. She also told him that YB City is a ticking bomb ready to explode so the three criminals are trying to put their heads together on guard against her, JH and probably HG. HG really grew a backbone. I’m proud of him. I hope he continues to change into a stronger person.
  3. Thanks for the summary and everything that you said is exactly what I got from seeing the clips even though I didn’t understand much of what was said. However, I still got the gist of the scenes and I knew GY rankled Jung’s dominance. I saw from the expression on her face that she was pushing back in a smart way. He seemed upset when she got up to leave. I also knew the contract wife responded to GY by pretty much repeating what she normally says. I could tell from their expressions. However, I am curious about her literal words because there is still a certain mystery behind their contract marriage that we don’t know. What exactly is he running from and so on...I am curious about that.
  4. Yes, here’s what I got from the text preview: The text preview for episode 96 says JH finds the hideout where Jung is keeping CDB. Sena signs a contract agreement with Koji to do business. HG begins an internal audit of YB group or YB City. I’m not sure if it’s the entire group or just a segment of their business.
  5. The text preview for episode 96 says JH finds the hideout where Jung is keeping CDB. Sena signs a contract agreement with Koji to do business. HG begins an internal audit of YB group or YB City. I’m not sure if it’s the entire group or just a segment of their business. As to the clips from today’s episode, it looks like GY held her own against mafia Chairman. I see some expression on his face that makes it seem like she rankled him. Also, could it be that HG has grown a backbone? He came home to find the three criminals in the sitting room waiting for him and someone must have said something unkind about JB and he stood up for her??? and then went upstairs against their wishes. As to Sena, the way she talks to GY continues to irks me. I’m longing for the day when she’s groveling before GY. And yes GY and JH told her parents about Baek. Poor parents were visibly shaken by the news. To think their son’s killer just walked in the place and they served him and showed him hospitality. @viyra, the police needs proof that Baek killed DY and apparently none was provided because there’s no evidence and the witness was missing. All the other evidence like the video of him meeting with Sena would be considered circumstancial evidence even in US courts. They need CDB who probably would sing like a canary on the witness stand now since Baek definitely tried to kill him too. He would have probably been a hostile witness for the case against Baek but not anymore since he will most likely not have any good feelings towards Baek.
  6. I heard the same this morning too that GY went to Emily and told her she doesn’t like JH anymore but it just didn’t make sense that she would go see Emily about that. I’m wondering if Baek showing up at the restaurant shook GY so much that she felt especially reassured when JH showed up a while later. I’m sure she and JH might have spoken about the unwelcomed visit by her brother’s killer who basically told her he can do worse to her and her family. Of course GY was also reminiscing about her past memories with JH during the time when they fell for each other and I guess she’s tired of waiting now and decided to be more honest about her feelings with the contract wife. I’m really hoping this wedding order by mafia Chairman will be ignored because frankly there aren’t many episodes left to deal with this complication along with sending Sena, Fake daddy and Mafia Chairman to jail, getting back YB City, catching CDB and making sure he stays locked up, jailing Baek, dealing with JB health issues and relationship issues, dealing with contract wife and possibly her leverage over JH, etc.
  7. I just watched the subbed preview (not the episode) and GY tells the contract wife that the heart doesn’t go the way one tells it to. She told the contract wife that she (GY) needs JH desperately too. As to mafia Chairman, I really want to see him behind bars just as much as I want to see Sena behind bars. However, the funny thing is even if the show ends with them behind bars we can’t even be sure they’ll stay locked up. This writer has really made a joke of crime and punishment.
  8. @myneighbortotoro, there are quite a few Chinese celebrities who married women older than them by a few years like Mark Chao (Ten Miles Peach Blossoms) whose wife Gao Yuanyuan is something like 5 years older than him , Wallace Huo (Love Me If You Dare) whose wife Ruby Lin is something like 3 - 4 years older than him, Chen Xiao (Female Prime Minister) whose wife Michelle Chen is about 3-4 years older than him. There are probably more but those are the three I remember right now. Their wives are actresses too and all look good to me. I find this OTP look great together despite the age difference and I love their interactions.
  9. I love this so much. I can’t stand him when he attacks JH. I hate him guts in those moments. JH doesn’t deserve that kind of treatment from him. However, I don’t hate the dad. Just at those moments. By the way, I like JH’s mom more now that I see her in Encounter as the heroine’s mom and she’s a total richard simmons. She is a terrible horrible monstrous mom to Song Hye Kyo’s character. It’s almost as if she’s not her biological mother who carried her for nine months. In comparison, as a mother in this she truly loves JB and JH in this show.
  10. Maybe she will tomorrow though. After all, JH will show up there and perhaps they talk about it with the family.
  11. I swear when I read what @joan0528 and @fansdrama posted about today’s episode I burst out laughing. I’m not even upset anymore and I’m really beginning not to care anymore. It’s beyond ridiculous. I really liked the two couples in this drama and that’s why I held on so long but I think I should start focusing again on my other current drama show couples. @sava2sava, thanks for that information. I did wonder why Baek showed up at Jae Dong’s. So they threaten GY with YS? Is GY not going to tell JH? Even if GY has plans to cave in to their demands, I still think she should tell JH about YS because he should be very much aware that his child can be used against him.
  12. @sava2sava, so JH found CDB? Good for him. As to GY marrying HG, I wish they would hurry up and do it. The “will they won’t they” is getting tiring. They could pretty much marry them off this week to end that storyline and just focus on taking down SN. She makes my blood boil every time she gets away with her bad deeds. Evil uncle need to be gone too but I’m okay with the noose slowly tightening around his neck.
  13. I guess we should be used to this but I notice every week for the last three weeks GY is supposed to get married to HG. I guess they should just go ahead and get married already and spare us the suspense. Meanwhile, SN getting her way should be expected right down to the minute before the credits roll in the last episode. This writer is truly adept at rinse and repeat writing.
  14. This is why he needs the character growth. How can he be in charge of a conglomerate and can’t even do this much? I think he is just too cowardly and he needs to be more courageous. How can JH handle so many things at once? His contract wife, YB City, Koji and Sena, this new development with GY, searching for CDB and still keeping track on Baek. He has way too much going on.
  15. Actually, I think HG needs to do his part too. He has power in his company and it’s about time he graduate to the man in charge. His family has been the source of the problems in this show and it would be very good character growth if he changes how his family behave and treat others. He shouldn’t hide behind blood if he wants to change the company as he declared he would. I know JH intends to do his part but HG shouldn’t allow his uncle to continue threatening peoples and their businesses. So to me he should join up with JH rather than sit on the sidelines.
  16. Quite frankly it’s time for these villains to get their just desserts. And maybe too this new development will shake up JH because he need to get rid of his contract wife. He’s being too passive and complacent as though he wants GY to continue waiting for the rest of her life. Still,I really dislike how characters in Korean shows let people control them. It’s the strangest thing for me to watch. I guess this will be up to JH to decide if he wants his son raised by someone else or stay at the side of his contract wife.
  17. @joan0528 and @fansdrama, I don’t even know what to say anymore. Personally I wouldn’t sell my soul or life for any business or money so I really do not understand these characters. Perhaps because I grew up in a free country I have never understood characters letting other people dictate their lives as adults. I’m watching the drama Encounter and it’s pretty much like this too. Well, if GY and HG want to live their lives at the dictate of others, it’s really their choice. Also why does GY have to tell Emily anything though. Emily already claims JH as hers.
  18. Personally I like JB and HG and I want their relationship to work out. I think their relationship is more than “usual” simply for the fact that both are still holding on after two decades and they have a different relationship dynamic when they get along. I’m very annoyed with this stupid writer for doing this to them. My aerobics instructor just had her first baby at 44 years old after getting married at 42 years and trying for a while to get pregnant. So I know it really gets difficult to become pregnant with age but to make it so JB can’t have kids is terrible of this writer after putting their relationship through the wringer so many times. I saw the clip of Baek Chul going to the restaurant and I was annoyed with GY for not telling her parents anything. I will just assume she will in tomorrow’s episode. They really need to buy a house.
  19. GY has endured a lot in dealing with JH and his wacko contract wife. She has shown remarkable patience with the constant threats and harassing phone calls from the wacko contract wife. Just for this alone I loathe the wacko contract wife. If she hadn’t done these things to GY I wouldn’t have such strong feelings towards her. After all, JH walked into this mess himself and should deal with it himself. If he’s given a second chance with GY, I think he has a lot to apologize for just for all the things GY had to forbear with from the wacko contract wife. Also, I’m beginning to feel impatient with JH. I know he feels sorry for the contract wife and has to wait for her to become mentally stronger but I also feel he’s encouraging her dependency on him. In the meantime, I can clearly see now why GY didn’t want YS to meet his father until after the two months. Notice the child has been asking more often now for his father. His grandfather also mentioned that he’s growing excited to see his father so the child has increasing expectations towards JH which to me is not good because he’ll be disappointed. This only make things more difficult for GY because she has to give him answers and worry about the impact on the child. It must have really been foreshadowing back then when JH told GY he wanted to have a child and she objected and said that he comes home late and that means she’ll be the one left taking care of the child. He had promised her that he’ll help out and so she gave in and agreed to them start trying to get pregnant and sure enough she’s the one who ended up raising the child.
  20. @chubby^green^, nice summation of the episode. I’m just very pleased with Yoo Kyung’s growth in confidence. I like that even though she was unexpectedly confronted by the addition of Hyun Oh and his fiancée to the trip, she kept herself together. Imagine how uncomfortable it must have been to share a meal with them. She handled herself well. Hyun Oh. I understand he has a dream and wants to pursue it but I kept wondering why people don’t know when to give up. I always think that people in those kinds of fields that can be subject to injury should always think of a second career option for the future. He is obviously in pain because of his knee (probably from jumping and other dance forms that put pressure on the knees) but he’s deceiving even the people he signed a contract with. I think that’s unprofessional because he might end up hindering their success. His fiancée is indeed pushy. Didn’t she ask her dad’s secretary to have Hyun Oh followed? Creepy if you ask me. She’s pulling a lot of strings for him so their whole relationship, both business and personal, seem to rest on her efforts.
  21. I’m so proud of Yoo Kyung. She is definitely standing up for herself now even when Hyun Oh wants to be wish washy with her. I love how she shut him down when he tried to use the affection he probably guessed that she still feels towards him. She told him she’s not going to go along with his mood. I look forward to seeing more of her growth in the upcoming episodes.
  22. So happy that he’s already married because I can’t stand the possibility of her getting what she wants after doing so many terrible things to hurt the reputation and livelihoods of others. She also targeted the step-brother twice so it would be weird if he hooked up with her even if he wasn’t already married.
  23. It’s like you read my mind and wrote my thoughts. I’d like to single out the wilderness part though. It really slowed down the pace and interest for me. I was thinking the other Academy students would be part of the arc too but instead we got long scenes of NQ and MSS bonding while trekking alone through snowy plains which was less interesting than the politics of those scenes when old auntie was trying to frame and accuse people until Fu Zi gave her a resounding smack with his long arm. I also don’t like hearing how SS reacted after NQ left her parents home. I also thought that if SS made the decision to leave home she should have prepared her heart with the same determination with which she left. She does sound different from the SS in the novel that you guys tell us about.
  24. I like her but I don’t ship her with NQ. @epinklyn, thanks for that photo of first and second brother. As I’ve said before, I find second brother hawt. I love looking at him in every single scene even with that hat that @angelangie doesn’t like.
  25. Regarding this, as bad as it will be for JH, I feel it might be better for the people to find out where he is. Only then can Deranged’s power over him become void. I don’t want it to happen but neither can Deranged be trusted to not spill his secret any further or not call those people in one of her emotionally unstable episodes even if she would do us all the favor of disappearing to the US with her long lost mom. She obviously think holding on to a man who has not shown her any intimate affection will make her happy for the rest of her life. Big mistake. No doubt his tolerance for her is limitless because I’m beginning to think that Deranged has to seriously vex him in order for him to overcome his guilt and pity for her. He didn’t even seem upset when she threatened him twice that he can’t leave her easily and that one call to the US will be the end of him. Nevermind he did these dangerous things to save her sorry life. She ignores this and use it to blackmail him because like I have already concluded, she’s an extortionist masquerading as a victim. I do think that eventually SN, Mobster Chairman and Fake Daddy might join hands to find out JH’s weakness especially if he’s able to find that guy who can testify that Baek Chul killed DY. Mobster Chairman would then lose his power over JH and they will try to get rid of JH through investigating the information that Deranged already hinted to SN or SN will get more information from Deranged by pressing that dummy’s buttons. I have full faith in Deranged that she’ll eventually put JH’s life in danger. @viyra, I have watched a lot of Korean crime drama and their police and prosecutors are almost always corrupt. So much so that one time I asked my South Korean coworker, who is a consultant who goes back and forth to SK, if the justice system in SK is really like that. He basically said that it’s pretty much like everywhere else in developed countries. However, while US crime shows generally don’t portray the justice system as corrupt, the SK crime shows portray the justice system as overwhelmingly corrupt in a lot of crime shows. The prosecutors are always in cohoots with the rich for career upward mobility and perks and the prosecutors direct the cops so it’s a cesspool in a lot of their crime shows.
