  1. A few thoughts Once again, we have a drama addressing the issue of suicide in SK and how often the families look at it from a selfish point of view. It really bothered me when CA's mom showed up and kept saying she had to lie about JK because "his mother" would not be able to handle the fact that he committed suicide. I kept thinking what about your daughter? She is in this situation right now because she wanted to commit suicide. Unfortunately, she ended up being left alone and having to deal with JK's death and last words. Also, how would CA's mom know what JK's mom would feel or think? Furthermore, CA, as a kid still in high school should not have been expected to carry a lie of this magnitude all the while dealing with the fact that she tried to kill herself. I was so bothered by her mother's quick thinking to discard evidence of the planned suicide and then taking JK's phone and even forcing CA to call it in. I kept wondering when she was going to ask her child why she wanted to kill herself, but she never did. The truth will inevitably come out. I keep thinking of the lady that checked them into the room. All of the people that probably saw them at that train stop. For all we know, someone saw him walking into that water alone. The truth re: his suicide is going to come to light and mommy dearest will have to come to terms with it. As far as the older sister, I am not bothered by her desire to marry well. Look at her parents. Her father sits around at home all day doing absolutely nothing but being gross and then ordering her mother around like she is the help. She is deathly afraid of ending up like her mother. She is probably traumatized by it. All the mother does is passive aggressively curse the father in her head or takes it out on CA. This is survival for the older sister. She is probably thinking even if the marriage doesn't work out, she can get a decent settlement and live her life on her terms. To her, anything is better than living in poverty with a man that cannot take care of her or support her like her mother.
  2. After watching episodes 3 and 4, I have some questions that I really hope get answered before the show ends. I understand that 20 years has passed. But to me it seems that EVERYBODY that was close to them have aged horribly. I think the writers have done this on purpose. To show the consequence of how they handled things. The only people who gave a valiant effort to find them were their immediate families, although I found it strange that GMR's family told her friends that she moved to the US. Why? What did they hope to gain from this lie? I also found the fact that MDC's father passed was indicative of how his family turned out. I noticed in the first episode that he seemed to be the only one diligently working besides the father. When they had that dinner where the brother was frantically playing the piano and the sister was singing, It was clear they were out of touch with reality. Were they even working then? I get the impression the father was hoping MDC would continue to do well as a producer to take some of the load off of him. The rest of the family was bleeding him dry as he appeared to be the only breadwinner outside of MDC. With MDC gone, I suppose it was just too much for the father to handle alone. With four able-bodied adults living together, it makes no sense they are all sharing that small apartment over the restaurant. They don't have to live in luxury, but they could be living better than that. As far as GMR, it is odd to me that her friends would believe that she up and left and NEVER contacted them, or came home for a holiday. That just doesn't make sense. I love her relationship with her brother and I also love that she has barely been awake a week and already she is looking to continue college and get a job. It is this quality that MDC is going to fall for. GMR is not like his siblings or even his ex. She doesn't feel that anyone owes her anything, except her lost time. She is very forward-moving and independent and that is going to appeal to MDC. I get the feeling in the past that the main reason his ex was involved with him was because he came from a comfortable family and was making a good living as a successful variety show producer. She wanted that life. I always got the feeling that she was more in love with him than he was with her. His job back then made it hard for him to really have a personal life. Since they both worked at the same network, it gave her more access to him, but given more options, whose to say MDC may not have chosen someone else. As far as MDC's sunbaes, the station, his colleagues, I find them all repugnant. They all worked together to cover up the experiment and now coincidentally, they all have positions and titles within the company. They sold him out for their current jobs, just like his ex sold him out to become an anchor. Their silence kept MDC and GMR frozen for all of these years and I believe that the truth is going to come out. MDC is clearly excellent at variety shows. He came up with ideas for shows that are already successful that he doesn't even know about. I believe MDC and GMR will end up producing a show about what happened to them and in the process the truth of the cover up will come out. There is definitely more to this than what has already been revealed. Look at what happened to the doctor. Not only does he not remember anything, he is acting as though he is suffering brain loss.
  3. So my bet is: Option 6 - I think SH's mom was killed by someone that she didn't suspect. In the flashback, she looked surprised as much as struggling to stay alive. It could've been a worker, contractor, delivery guy, someone she would come in contact with semi-regularly, but not someone in the family. However, I am adding Option 3, because they were probably paid to do it by Ms. Han. I think either way, it comes back to her. She knows everything that goes on in that family or she controls everything that goes on in that family.
  4. One thing that episode 11 showed me was the SH's mom was someone who had the potential to be BIG. She was young, attractive, talented and well connected. Her works had already garnered her acclaim and recognition in the art world. I think when Ms. Han came into the picture, she wanted to get rid of any and everything that would somehow get in the way of the father getting control of the company, which is why she staged the accident with grandpa, mysteriously SH's mom is killed and YD's mom is conveniently framed for it. SH's mother was seen as a threat. She had won the favor of the Chairman and she had an identity outside of having a child in the Mo family. SH's mother wanted to make sure SH was cared for, but she wasn't after money or power. She was caught up in her work and lived in her own world. I still say it was either 2nd wife or Ms. Han or both that killed her. The fact that SH's mom knew that WJ was a cross-dresser is also something to take note of.
  5. I am watching this drama late, but one thing I know for sure is that anytime amnesia plays a role in a story, if the person (especially if it is a lead) has amnesia for too long, it messes with the plot. I knew by episode 22 when she was still trying to get her memory back that this drama was going to get messy towards the end. The writers should have already given this girl her memory back and let's all move the plot forward. It is hard to write about even finding out something that happened in the past if the lead still can't remember anything. That's just lazy writing. I will forge ahead to the end though, but I find so many of the comments in here hilarious!
  6. If you notice, Ms. Han has dropped the ball a couple of times here lately. For some reason, her stern exterior is starting to crack, and I think it is because she sees what she perceives to be the light at the end of the tunnel. Part of her arrogance is the belief that once she has something on someone, some secret or weakness, she can just use that to control them. It worked with CNR, and she believes it worked with SH as well. She knows that Mr. Han is older and ready to pass the torch and so now she has set her sights on WS, who up until now has been relatively quiet and obedient. Even her finding out about the cross dressing is icing on the cake for her because it can be used to control things behind the scenes and get her way. This will definitely play a role in her downfall because truthfully WS is a ticking time bomb ready to explode. He has lived his life in hiding for so long and now he is expected to be a corporate puppet for the rest of his life? I get the feeling his older brother is going to step in and help him in some way. I really don't like loose ends in a drama. They bring about too much angst, and right now the biggest loose end are those two reporters and the fact that they know YD's real identity. It was really annoying how they ignored all of the things that were going on with the company but diligently went on a quest to find out about YD. If that double agent tells lover girl about YD's identity, I will never forgive him. YD came to them like a man and was honest about his identity and how he just wants to clear his mother's name. They owe him that much humanity to keep it to themselves and not put him and his mother's life in danger. I think SH and YD need to do some digging on Dr. Han, get on offense.
  7. So a few thoughts on the last episode I am really annoyed that the female reporter discovered YD's real id. And because she is working with that double agent, YD is going to get exposed to TOP and be in a position where he is going to have to continue working for them or risk a worse fate. I feel like that entire team is full of people that are smart but have pasts that Dr. Han knows about and has used to blackmail them and get them to do whatever she wants them to do. Honestly Dr. Han finding out about YD's true identity probably wouldn't shake her, but the fact that he is in such close proximity to SH is the problem. The dynamic going on in the house right now is very interesting. The 2nd stepmother and 3rd stepmother are fighting for control of the house. I do know if I believe that the 2nd stepmother ever married the father. I think that is how they have made it look. I always got the feeling the only woman he married was SH's mother because that is who the grandfather wanted him to be with. I think before he met SH's mother he was probably married before and cheated on that wife with the 2nd stepmother. Then when that wife left, the 2nd stepmother moved in before getting grandfather's approval, which we know she never got. Then SH's mother moved in, but they ended up killing her. Then afterwards, appa hooked up with 3rd stepmother. I get the feeling that his involvement with 2nd stepmother is for optics. Much like his second son's marriage, it is loveless and sexless, which is why he was swayed by the actress. I also get the feeling that the actress was liking the eldest son, but because of what people said about him, she went for the money. He knows this and that is the reason he has stepped up and tried to get people to take him more seriously than they have. The argument between brothers was very revealing. They are both in tune with one another. The 2nd brother knows the eldest wants the respect that the eldest son should have, which is why when he met with Dr. Han, he tried to get him more stock percentage. The eldest knows that deep down, the 2nd son doesn't want the responsibility. Personally, I think he is ONLY doing it for his mother. Speaking of which, I don't think that 2nd stepmother is the eldest son's mother. He literally has no relationship with her. I find Director Han interesting. She looks like she might be in her 50's. She isn't married, doesn't have any children, she doesn't have a significant other and she doesn't appear to have any friends. TOP is literally her ENTIRE life. That makes her vulnerable to me because she has nothing else to fall back on. She has no interpersonal relationships and she has such an incessant need for power, for revenge and for control that I imagine if her day in and day out routine is shaken up even a little bit, she would become unhinged.
  8. Since we are all playing What If, I will add mine to the frey. What if the second son is not the father's son? I don't trust the wife. She looks like the type that will lie for some type of inheritance and she is very determined to make her son the heir. I also thought it was interesting when she met with the guy from TOP and he tried to get her to sign over her shares, she flat out refused even though she herself reasoned that her son's shares were like her shares as well. It was like she needed some type of insurance. I think that is why she hates SH so much because SH is the only real true blooded heir. Someone also commented [sorry I forgot the @] that they think the mother knows something else. I agree. I also believe that she probably knows something that she may think is insignificant, but it is actually a really big deal. I cannot wait for things to unfold. I think SH and lawyer should shake up TOP from the inside. Get ALL of the dirt on everybody, then bring them down, one by one.
  9. I may be in the minority here, but I like the ending. I never looked at this drama as a romance or melodrama, because that wasn't the central issue here. This drama was very consistent about centering it around the practice of euthanasia, terminal illness and pain management. It just so happens the leads were attractive and had great chemistry. The three years apart is realistic. I cannot stand when a lead in a drama is legit sick or injured and they go overseas and magically everything is cured within a year. That is not realistic. Treatments take time. Often when it comes to drug trial and experimental treatments, this takes years. In the beginning, it was a lot easier for him to keep in touch and post his vitals, but as expected, he got ill. His health was vulnerable before he left, so it should've been expected that he would get ill once he was in Cleveland. Plus, you add in the fact that he is in a new country, new environment, around new bacteria and diseases, his system was very compromised. From day one KSY jumped in with both feet, YH did not because he has been told his entire life that he is ticking time bomb that could go off any day. He was still dealing with the death of the CIPA patient he could not save and relating it to his own health. I am sure he went through the ringer with all of the testing, and there were probably a lot of days where he could barely move or do anything. It also appears that when he returned to Korea, his health still wasn't the best, but he was in remission and learning how to work his way back. With that being said, we all know how KSY is, she would have been almost a nuisance had she known the second he stepped back in Korea. YH is a man who did not want to have a "caretaker" but rather a woman in his life. I can understand this. He kept an eye on here while gaining his strength and setting up a future for himself that would ensure he could be around for this woman a little while. Is this a glamorous or super romantic ending? No. But is it realistic? Yes. Now, he's healthy, he's found a new purpose and in a position to be the man that she needs in her life. I like it.
  10. So this is my issue with the whole SJ being terminally ill trope. It messes up the rhythm of the drama. MPDITW has been following a rhythm since the drama started. We got to see the drama with MS/JS/in-laws/DB. We also got the whole drama with MH/WJ/JB, which provided lots of comic relief. Then we have our OTP and all of the angst they are up against with his crooked family, and her biological mother. Killing off SJ was just so unnecessary. At this point, that story line feels thrown in and now it is dominating everything happening with the drama right now. We are no longer getting a balance of all of the happenings in the three daughter's lives. It has just been episode after episode of them crying over SJ's illness. The other worn out trope has been with the Chairman's wife. She has been conniving since she stepped into the picture. It's like we get it. You want ALL of the Chairman's money for yourself and your son. There has been no character development, no moving of the story line with her, just the same plotting over and over. She has been exhausted in this drama. I am disappointed because this drama started off so well, and had so much potential for an epic ending. Now, it has become predictable and it is always a bad idea to end a long drama with a really sad ending. I sincerely hope these last few episodes get better, but I am not holding my breath.
  11. I really enjoyed this drama down to the very end. It was nice to see the prosecutor back in the story line. She seemed to have woken up and really decided to just hand it to Deputy Yang who really thought he would be able to cover for the assemblyman. However, MH was two steps ahead of them. I was glad he was able to talk bad cop/flunkie out of taking the rap for the whole thing. The look on their faces when he confessed and told the truth was priceless. MH's hacker friend was also a favorite character in this drama. I loved how he had the other prosecutor and his team eating out of his hand when they were trying to recover the lost video. He is hilarious. Once the truth came out and they showed the kids back at school, I felt like they dropped a few story lines. But I suppose they weren't that important. Wanne be popstar will never get past her role in bullying TR. I get the angst of being a teenager, but some of their actions were just downright cruel and unnecessary. We knew the BJ killed SA, but actually watching how it played out was so heartbreaking. That poor girl didn't stand a chance. She was already dealing with the fact that she had a sponsor because she got abandoned by her adoptive parents, but to be confronted like that and then killed...I can honestly say I didn't feel bad for BJ when he got shot in the neck at the end. What goes around comes around and with his father no longer around to protect him, his demise came quick. Overall, this was very well put together. I feel like this corruption in schools theme has become more popular with all of the real life school scandals going on. While I enjoyed the drama, SKY Castle, I also liked how well- balanced this drama was. While there were some definite darkness to this drama, there were also some brilliant comedic moments too.
  12. So, I have kind of fallen off the MPDITW bandwagon. Ever since they gave SJ this death sentence and MS quit her job, my interest dwindled. So, let's just deal with the obvious. SJ is going to die and I predicted down to the unnecessary drama how this was going to play out. I knew SJ would find out alone. I knew she would keep it from her family. I knew that she would approve of MH and WJ. And, I knew that she would try and go away somewhere to die. This is the makjang bible right here and the writer is following it to the tee. I wish MH had gotten more character development before she and WJ got engaged. She is still terribly immature and she tends to speak first, think later, which often results in her putting her foot in her mouth. WJ is in for quite the ride. Like I said before, TH is not the chairman's son. It makes sense. This is why HM has been scheming since she returned to Korea. She wants to ensure some type of inheritance or payoff before the truth comes out. But her and her brother aren't smart enough to keep up this ruse. The chairman deserves getting scammed by her. He is an old fool. MR and TJ need to just focus on their growing family. The timing of SJ's death couldn't be worse. MR will need lots of love and support, after all she showed the most love to SJ and will miss her deeply since SJ so freely took over the role of being her mom. TJ needs to step up more at the company. His wife is pregnant and cannot take on everything by herself. MS can still kick rocks. I just can't stand her and her constant whining and complaining. She NEVER speaks up when she needs to such as when she is dealing with evil mother-in-law, but then she can't shut up when dealing with her mother. She usually says something mean and uncalled for. Even though JS annoys me, he has more sense than her. She is the absolute worst, and I don't feel any sympathy for her. I really hope the writer ties everything up nicely. SJ deserves a nice farewell, but I don't want to dwell on it for 5 episodes either. We deserve a cute chubby baby and renewed energy in the family.
  13. Oh, how I hated to see this drama end. I knew it would be good because all of the lead actors were my faves. I think the writer here really wanted to show the dynamic of relationships. The importance of loving yourself while you are in a relationship and the importance of knowing when to let go. KH had fallen into a very controlling situation where he allowed ZY to control too many aspects of his life. Even if the whole abortion story line wasn't present, those two didn't stand a chance. KH was an alpha male who was more than capable of navigating his career and making a success of himself. Even though he broke up with ZY, he still allowed her to control his life. Same thing with WW. She lost herself in her relationship with HY. She allowed him to control every aspect of her life, and even though she wasn't happy about all of the sacrifices, she was willing to do it if it meant the end game would be a lifetime of happiness for them. The problem is that control doesn't just end. It continues. It suffocates. It stifles, and after awhile, WW couldn't breathe. Then she and KH found each other and their meeting one another made the light bulb go off in both of their lives. Suddenly they both became uncomfortable with their relationships. Soon they were both questioning their happiness. I like that the writer didn't automatically put them together. Yes, KH had been there for WW and showed that he was worthy of being in a relationship. However, WW had to find herself again, because she had certainly lost it with HY. Men like HY don't need real love, they just need someone to play a role in their lives. They will be the director and run the show and they want a subordinate who will play along. Unfortunately for him, WW needed love in return, which made their coupling impossible. I really like how the writer showed WW struggling with the dynamic to take more control over her life, all while being friends with KF who had complete control over her life, her desires, and her happiness. KF represented the other side of the coin. Her character is typically frowned upon because "women aren't supposed to be like that". But as we saw, KF was not as promiscuous as people thought. She carefully chose who she hooked up with. She didn't delude herself into believing that sex equated to love, and she put her happiness before everything. KF was loyal and fierce and sweet, and it was endearing to me that once DW got to really know her, he fell head over heels for her. She was honest and content by herself which made her perfect for him because he knew she would never sacrifice her independence to be with someone just because they had money. She had no problem telling him about his behavior and she was a great friend. Even I fell for her. I also really enjoyed watching KH and WW's friendship. They respected and supported each other. They got along really well and they communicated well with one another. This type of healthy friendship/relationship was a breath of fresh air to witness. It was nice sharing this forum with you all. Til the next one!
  14. I haven't watched tonight's episode yet, but I can clearly see where this is going. I will go back to what I said last week, BJ knows too much. Why did TR have to tell him that she was aware that he left the theater for a while. As soon as she revealed that, I knew she was done. And how perfectly aligned is it that at the same time, YR chose to get people to call and harass her. So now BJ has the perfect alibi and motive for suicide. If those other students who called and harassed TR admit what they did and that they were coerced by little miss popstar, he will have even more help. If only she listened to HM, she may have lived. One thing for sure, another death of a student at the school is not going to help. That is two students and a school administrator all in a couple of months? Her death is going to change the dynamic among the scheming adults. I got the impression that TR's mother was a major player in all of this. Now, she is going to be angry and desperate for some type of revenge. HM needs to shift his focus to the adults. As far as BJ being a psychopath, I believe that he had been a ticking time bomb his entire life. Living under the harsh scrutiny and high expectations of being the son of an assemblyman, and then things began to unravel when he started liking TR. However, I bet she outright rejected him, and when BJ found out LTS was pimping her, he tried to use that to get leverage and get her to like him. Then she dropped the bomb that she was involved with his father and he went crazy. We will see, but this all falls back on BJ and his relationship with his father. The most infuriating character for me right now is Kim Han Soo. He wakes up and could easily be the key to the right person being convicted and instead he is keeping his mouth shut and following orders to protect SA, when in reality, there is a lot about her that he just doesn't know. Clearly he doesn't know that SA was involved with BJ's dad, otherwise he wouldn't be allowing him to manipulate him. As it stands, he has perjured himself again. Also, SA would want the world to know what happened to her. She would want justice, but instead, he is protecting some childhood image of her and it is so frustrating.
  15. All of the seeds have been planted and we now know that BJ is a sociopath who has brainwashed all of his classmates by appearing to be untouchable. Everyone talks about him like they are under some sort of Jedi mind trick. But more importantly, how does BJ know everything? How did he know that JJ had loan sharks after his family? How did he know that Bundle needed reassuring about coming back to school? How did he know to get JJ to threaten JE to setup MH because of the missing camera? How did he know that HS had woken up? A big part of his influence is due to the fact that he KNOWS EVERYTHING! Then, everyone just blindly listens to him and follows him, and these kids are loyal to him. Why? Even when TR's record got exposed online, the first thing her mother told her was to go back to school and stick close to BJ. What the hell is going on here? I am not surprised that he got to HS because HS proved that he isn't very smart already. HS is living in a fantasy world about SA and their time together at the orphanage. He doesn't want to believe that she fell into prostitution and escorting, but his new friend is covering up that she was in fact involved with his father. At this point HM needs to pull back. BJ already set it up for him to be removed from the school for not actually being a teacher and pretending to be someone else. Right now, everything is going BJ's way because he has given this a lot of thought and is on offense. Everyone else is on defense and the game is getting away. I think HM needs to focus on the assemblyman and not the kids because they are a by-product of what is happening with their parents. HM needs to figure out how everyone is intertwined and retrieve evidence. Clearly the assemblymen is behind SA and LT's deaths, but how does CEO Yoon factor in? TR's mother? Deputy Yang? Is there another person involved that we haven't seen yet? Focusing on just one person and catching a killer is the wrong way about this. You have to take down the entire circle. Another reason BJ is untouchable is because of who his father is. However, at the end of the day, he is still a child. Thus, focus on the big fish and cast a wide net because this is a big catch!
  16. I feel like I need to watch episode 12 all over again. Everyone had such good points a bout what 321 really wants vs what KH really wants. ZY is so annoyingly pathetic. I personally think that she is a creep too. It is really creepy how she weaved her way into every aspect of KH's company. She is best friends with all of the higher ups and their wives. She has this rapport with his team members, and it's like why? She did not previously work there. She does not work in that field. I have known couples, but never someone's significant other being this intertwined in their other half's workplace, unless they worked together. For her to be so smart, and accomplished, she seemed content on being a Stepford wife to KH, to the point of outright obsession. At this point, I feel like she is angry with him and that she feels entitled to be with him. As if those 10 years have bound them together and they can't separate no matter what. When WW lied to 321's father that she slept with KH in their home, my mouth was open. That is what you call desperation to get the heck away from someone. I didn't feel sorry for 321 or his dad. They BOTH manipulated WW and I felt glad that she was finally rid of them. Then 321 had to go and enter the project. At this point, let's all ban together and get WW a restraining order because this is ridiculous. Kudos to Sister Maizi for letting him know he doesn't hold a candle to KH. WW desperately wants to move on and heal past that toxic relationship and he just won't allow her to do that. I laughed out loud when DW came to work and practically screamed, "GOOD MORNING!" He was so giddy, he and KF are the comic relief this show needs.
  17. A few thoughts... TJ proved why he desperately needs MR these last two episodes. One bad conversation with evil dad and he quit and gave up his heir to the company? I was like dude what are you doing. You hold ALL of the cards. The Chairman cannot harass his wife or let out the truth of her and IS's relationship because he wants to protect the company more than anything. TJ moving out was a great idea, but I would not have relinquished rights to anything. Poor MR, she can't even have a few weeks rest into her pregnancy because she has to go and save her husband's place in the company. HM and her brother are as ignorant as they come. She actually believes THEY can run the company until her son (who may not even want to work for Hansung) gets old enough? As if anybody can walk into a huge conglomerate and run it with no experience, education or connections. The ignorance is just laughable. We may as well prepare ourselves because the truth about MR and IS is going to come out and it will be because of the Han's. HM deserves whatever loneliness awaits her. I do agree that she shouldn't be with JB, however, she is handling her involvement with WJ extremely poorly. Even with little dating experience, act like a grown-up. Be respectful of the fact that he has burned. It's not just that he had a failed marriage, that lady betrayed him. Being in another romance is going to be difficult for him. She is such a child about all of this. Now, she wants WJ to treat her the way that JB did. First of all, JB has 10+ years of knowing her and her family under his belt. She and WJ have known each other for what 2-3 months? And already, she is discussing marriage??? Please make it stop. MS is getting exactly what she deserves. She should have known her MIL would try to take advantage of the fact that she is no longer working. They are seriously going to have to move. JS is a bafoon, at work and at home. If he keeps being such a brown nose at work, he and MS will surely be in the poor house. Well, know we are full makjang. SJ is sick and it is clear that the illness is serious. So it will probably be that everyone will start to get their act together before she leaves or gets better. I just hope MH doesn't use her mom's illness to pressure WJ into marrying her. Then, she will be beyond forgiveness.
  18. What I find fascinating about this drama is the fact that so many people, just about all of the characters are so intertwined that it is easy to believe that anyone could be the murderer. We know whoever killed SA visited her the night she died. We know that her murder and LTS's murder are connected. We know that at some point, BJ started running the show. It is actually quite sinister how he controls just about everything and everyone in that elite group. However, after watching episode 10, I have a few questions. When LTS met with the Assemblyman, what did he mean when he said, I know how much you liked SA? What did HM see that made him assess that LTS was murdered? Also, didn't HM witness LTS installing cameras in his office? What happened to those cameras? How did BJ find out that HM was a lawyer at KH's father's firm? And how did he know KH already knew? If the foursome all know who HM really is, why haven't they said anything? It is clear that the cliffhanger is just that. We all know that HM isn't going anywhere because clearly the foursome are all afraid of him not being at the school than him being there, so why did BJ set this up to scare HM? Has BJ been behind all of the evil misdeeds all along? He seems to be the thread tying everything together. These questions lead me to believe that his father wasn't just behind LTS's death but SA's death as well. The question is why. I believe that SA had to entertain the assemblyman and found out something big. Much like BJ, the assemblyman seems to be in bed with all of the elite parents, the prosecutor's office and the law firm. The assemblyman seems to be the person at the top that everyone is working under. He was the only person LTS seemed to bow down to as well. Remember, LTS was very arrogant with everyone else, including KH's dad. I can't help but wonder if LTS's brother had something to do with his death. Prediction: I believe it will come out that the assemblyman has been involved in either trafficking or underage prostitution. I believe that BJ has an inkling about this which is why he feels the need to be in control of everything, including spying on his father's phone. However, I believe his father is a step ahead of him. $10 bucks says he has a burner phone, much like the one that was taken from LTS safe. So, all of this time BJ has been spying on a phone that his father is only doing half of his business on. The darker, more sinister stuff is being handled with another device. Also, I find it interesting that when BH was getting mercilessly bullied, BJ stood by and watched. He did nothing. He didn't step in, help, give advice, nothing. Then at the final hour, he tells BH to fight back just in time to get JJ expelled from school. Since then, BJ has visited JJ and has helped him even though he was behind his expulsion. BJ has also visited BH and expects to get him back in school. Why? Why bring him back when he was so miserable when he was there. BJ has plans for all of these people that he has helped. Also, I wish HM or SH were smart enough to use social media or the Internet in some way to bring attention to all of this. With one phone call any articles on LTS dying in the school will vanish and people will be talking about something else. Just like YR hired someone to create that app for her, HM could do the same with his hacker friend. Either way, things are getting more interesting, what do you all think?
  19. OKAYYYYYYYYYYYYY I am so glad that JB finally gave up. His proposal to MH was as pathetic as one would expect from him. "I will never make your heart flutter, but I will always be there". And he wonders why she never swooned over him? Dude needs to learn how to love himself enough to expect love back from someone else. This whole ruse of him being perfectly okay being in a one-sided relationship is just too pitiful for words. I just wish SJ would accept it. She is the one that is in love with JB, not her daughter. Her and the uncle are so annoying with how they are trying to force this girl to be with JB. However, once again MH needs to grow up. Her lack of maturity is the biggest reason they don't trust her to make her own decision re: her love life. I am officially done with MS. She is too selfish and too stupid to be anyone's mother. I get it, she feels guilty because EVERYBODY tried to warn her about the babysitter and she didn't listen because she didn't want to take the time to find someone else. But, this is NOT it. She and her husband are already stretched financially. Then she goes and quits her job so that they are now strained and depending on one income. MAKE IT MAKE SENSE!!! I have even grown tolerable of her husband who seems to be willing to help out and work with her in raising their daughter. She is just unbelievable. Literally no one supports her in this dumb decision and in the long run, she is going to be wrong yet again. I am done. Poor MR. Here she is out here alone trying to keep the company afloat, support her husband and now carry a child, with her entire future hanging on by a thread. I almost feel like TJ isn't good enough for her. We already know IS isn't good enough. Now MR has to save her from suicide because IS is now realizing her decision to be comfortable by joining that family comes with these ridiculous consequences. The chairman is one of those people that will always hang any help he has given someone over their head as a way to control. I laughed out loud at him sending his henchman to go get her from the countryside. What is he a mafia boss now? He's like 100 years old! And he is putting all of this angry energy into IS, MR and TJ, when the real snake is tucking him in at night. At this point, I hope his wife runs off with half his fortune, because he is dumb. HM thinks she has it made now that the secret is out, but then what? Is she going to run the company? Her brother? They are useless. That company would be bankrupt before the year is out. Too many stupid people, not enough time.
  20. I think it was last year or it might've been 2017 when there was this big scandal involving an older idol in Korea sexually assaulting a woman who was thought to be a prostitute. Eventually, it was swept under the rug because most people there felt that this woman had it coming to her because of what she did for a living. This attitude is pervasive all over the world. Sex workers, sugar babies, hostesses are often thought of as disposable. If they get raped, assaulted, beaten, etc., people view it as a part of their job that they should have seen coming. It's quite repugnant to think that way really, and I get the underlying feeling in this drama regarding SA's death, those kids had a sense of relief because of who she came in contact with. Whoever her sponsor was, she ended up being around a lot of high profile men who more than likely were doing a lot of dangerous things. These men just want a body, someone who will fulfill a need. So imagine their surprise when this girl happened to be attending the same uppity school they send their entitled kids. It is clear whoever killed SA was a grownup, most likely someone's father. Either KH or BJ. Both of their fathers are schmucks who have done a lot of dirt and even more dirt to cover up their dirty deeds. SA was at the right place at the wrong time and just her knowledge of something or someone was enough to have her killed. It could've been BJ's dad. He is out here running for office and trying to keep his current seat. His image is vital to him. If SA was just some prostitute he hooked up with, he would've thrown money at her and kept moving. But if he ran into her at his son's school, or even worse saw his son hanging out with her, I could see him doing something drastic. I found it interesting how he kept telling BJ to always remember who he is the son of. Then there is also the possibility of KH, who is clearly obsessed with SA. There were tons of pictures of her and if he got hung up on her and his father discovered it, and also discovered some of his VIP clients were involved with her, I could see him arranging to get rid of her as well. That dynamic is the crux of this drama. As soon as MH revealed that SA was a sex worker in court, HS started shaking. It wasn't anger so much as he looked scared and nervous. Then MH continued to hammer the point and that is when HS got upset because as her friend and protector, he wanted to at least protect her reputation. It makes sense, that is why he kept asking MH what her condition was. If she was going to live, he knew he couldn't say anything because she would surely die. However, if her prognosis was bleak, then he could lead MH in the right direction. Throwing himself off of that building was a way to save himself. They would've targeted him next. That moment in court is also what led to MH's suspension. That was a very harsh punishment for a case that was basically stayed until HS woke up. MH, however, had stumbled upon something big. In light of all the scandals going on right now in Korea, this is right on brand. Even the Burning Sun scandal that forced Seungri of Big Bang to retire and YG to step down, most people believe they are just the tip of the iceberg. They believe that scandal involves politicians and other big names. The one thing that kept bothering me was SA's parents. Overseas? You leave your daughter alone and she is still in high school? It didn't look like they even returned for her funeral. What if she was sold into that lifestyle by her parents? And what if she was a part of a much bigger, more underground sex trafficking ring? I hope the writer explores all of these possibilities. Great drama so far.
  21. I brought this up as soon as they introduced her character on the show. Please let this happen. Let TJ and MR have the presence of mind to dig into HM's dirt because I am sure there is plenty. Imagine the scandal of the chairman supporting a woman with whole other baby daddy.
  22. Let's just chalk up this weekend's episodes to typical psychological projection. First, MH is still a child, but I guess it worked because she got what she wanted. WJ is clearly fully smitten with her (bless his heart), and despite her childish request to make a baby, he somehow convinced her mother that maybe they should be given a chance. The mom though is annoyingly stubborn and holding onto JB who walks around in an apron cleaning floors and catering to everybody. Meanwhile the woman he claims to love is head over heels with another guy who is now reciprocating her feelings. JB is really infuriating, like with no redeemable qualities, I'm sorry. If my mother caught me asking a man to make a baby, oh my gosh, I don't even want to think about how that would turn out. I have no more thoughts about this situation, except JB deserves to be in permanent timeout for ruining not one but TWO PERFECTLY GOOD WATERMELONS!!! Second, MS had to find out how much of an idiot she is after it was clear the caretaker was abusing her child, messing up their house, getting paid for not doing actual work and her daughter came up missing. I did not feel sorry for her. That whole passing out crying act she pulled was so reminiscent of her mother, I laughed. EVERYBODY TRIED TO TELL HER that she was getting scammed. She refused to listen and instead just relied on a FIVE YEAR-OLD to make the decision. Her ultimate decision to quit her job was knee-jerk reactive and honestly just not smart. If she wanted to take a leave of absence, I would understand, but to be a stay-at-home parent is not even feasible. They cannot afford it. She won't be satisfied until they are living with her mother. MS and JS's inability to work together and come up with a workable way to take care of their daughter and make sure she is cared for while providing for their family is the reason that little girl endured the mess with the sitter. Hate to say it, but she was right about them needing a caretaker for DB. MS needs time to find a reasonable solution. My suggestion is that they move. Find another place that is much more affordable, then they can put more funds towards childcare. They may even be able to get DB into an after-school program that can bridge the gap. MS and JS will both have to step up though. JS needs to stop whining about that dam bike and put that energy into his child. MS needs to stop looking for someone else to do everything like her mother did. She is really looking for a babysitter/maid/cook all in one. Someone like that costs money. This resignation isn't going to last long, but I suppose they needed to do something with their story line. I really wish MR and SJ didn't both carry so much shame about IS abandoning her. This is where SJ failed MR. Yes, MR grew up in a loving family, but SJ basically pretended like it didn't happen and that was NOT IT. MR needed to grow up knowing she did nothing wrong, and that she was smart, beautiful and capable and had nothing to be ashamed of. SJ sweeping it under the rug, then almost abandoning her when she found out they worked at the same company did some real damage to her. TJ has been too sheltered in my opinion. He spent these episodes crying and being angry at everybody, but your wife was honest and transparent with you. She told you she had a complex about being abandoned. She even tried to tell him about it, when she broke things off with him before, but he was stubborn and chose not to hear it because he didn't want her to turn him down. Of course MR would marry him thinking later they would divorce, she has abandonment issues, so of course she would believe TJ would abandon her too. It's unacceptable how in the dark he is about his own family. IS included. MR is out here trying to protect him, all the while knowing his father's wife wants to get him out of the way, but he was so dam nosy and just had to dig into IS's past and now he wants to waste days sulking because he found out his precious "mommy" isn't who he thought she was. Quite frankly, he should've thought about this before when he saw how much MR despised her. Now IS has disappeared and her greedy family, plus the chairman's in-laws are crowding in on them like hyenas. I need him to snap out of it and protect his wife and his role. Her being pregnant is the icing on the cake because she was afraid of being a mom due to her own trauma. Alright writers, time to land this plane.
  23. And can I add....if I hear MS pout talk one more episode, I am literally going to vomit! She even talks in the closed-mouth pouty voice to her daughter, I just simply can not!
  24. I haven't even watched all of it, but I know what happens and get the gist... MS is an idiot, and her daughter has suffered over and over again because of it. Whether it is the dysfunctional relationship she has had with her husband and in-laws, to her bad relationship with her mother and her sisters, DB has been exposed to bad relationships, bad decisions and bad energy. That poor little girl is being raised horribly all because her parents are too selfish to work together to make this work. MH is going to keep fighting her mother about not marrying JB because she's too childish for her mother to ever consider her marrying someone like WJ. I get her mom was feeling some type of way about him being divorced but she knows that her daughter cannot handle the type of relationship that requires being mature and adult about something like that. I need MH to stop hiding under the covers, pouting, going on hunger strikes, etc. She needs to learn how to communicate with actions to show people that she can handle certain situations. Poor WJ, he doesn't realize what he is in for. I knew that once TJ found out, he was going to be mad at the world and here we are. I can see him being upset with IS, after all he has looked at her as being a mommy savior in his life. But it is past time for the rose colored glasses to come off in regards to his family. MR has more of grip on who these people really are then he does. However, him not knowing that she is the daughter that IS abandoned, is no worse than him keeping the fact that he was the Chairman's son from her and then him taking over the position she was in line for. So, I need him to suck it up and stop being a victim. This drama will be on for at least another six weeks which means they are going to drag this story line out until the wheels fall off.
  25. So two things I got from episode 9 WW and KH's friendship has turned into yet another step into her realizing the sham her relationship has been. No, she and 321 weren't together for 10 years like KH and ZY, but three years is still a significant amount of time to invest into someone. I think WW has been reluctant to let the relationship go because truly things have been this way since the start, she just didn't see it because 321 had her believing it was all a part of the plan. We knew when she practically begged him to let her spend the night at his house so they could be intimate and he turned her down because God forbid she would want to spend the night at her boyfriend of three years house again and this was not included in the rules. I got the impression in the first couple of episodes that KH wasn't exactly the nicest person. He was also a workaholic, yet we see him on a date with ZY in the first episode. With anything in life, you have to have balance and this is what 321 lacks in spades. In episode 9 alone, he calls WW three times. He is on the phone with her all 3 times less than three minutes. Two of those times it was to deliver bad news. Even their communication is bad. Never mind the fact that he makes all of these decisions without ever taking her feelings into account, but when he does talk to her, it's like he's talking at her and not with her. Their communication feels like he is just checking in to keep her in line, make sure she is being obedient and still there. It really felt like that when his call interrupted them kissing. Yes, WW is attracted to KH, who wouldn't be, but attraction is not enough to hold a relationship together. You need to have things in common, common goals and desires, otherwise you are just wasting your time. WW is not going to get any happier if she rushes and falls into bed with KH. But she does need to face her current situation. It is not easy to break an engagement, especially as a woman. She feels like maybe she wants to leave because she has another option, but 321 is giving her all of the reasons to leave at the moment. The cringiest moment was when she was talking to 321 and he confirmed that he wasn't coming to Taiwan to see her and she asked him if her being okay with it was expected of a future wife, and he said of course, then they hung up. The fight has left WW. She doesn't even care anymore. She showed more emotion when she watched KH carry ZY out of the party than she did when her fiance' said that to her. And even then, when KH took ZY to the hospital, he called WW and had planned to leave to come and get her to make sure she got home. I want WW to be happy, which means that even when she breaks things off with 321, she needs to take a step back and work on why she was a doormat in that relationship to begin with. She shouldn't get with KH and end up the same way with him. People really lose themselves in relationships sometimes. We found out that ZY lied about the abortion. Why? Seriously, why would she lie about something like that. She really thought that being childless at that time would endear him to her? It did the exact opposite. She got no closer to appearing as a wife to him, which makes me wonder if she ever really loved KH or was she holding on to a title. I digress. Hopefully these last four episodes, WW will find who she has become as a woman and then move into KH's life whole and complete.
