[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Woman with a Suitcase" Episode 9

 

photo777684.jpg

Episode 10 of "Woman with a Suitcase" has been pre-empted because of baseball season so we only get episode 9 this week. However, it's a powerful episode where we see Geum-joo grasping at a second chance in life. The case that landed her in jail and reset her life to be more difficult resurfaces and gives her chances she never thought she'd see again.

The first chance she takes is trying to mend the relationship with her sister. Geum-joo offers a peace offering and is coldly, but predictably rejected. Hye-joo is obviously on a long, dark path and will most probably work her way towards redemption somehow. Until then, her soul has, like she feared, been swallowed by Oh Sung, and she is a cruel pawn who spits poison at her older sister and attempts to win over Bok-geo with futile feminine wiles.

The second chance at redemption Geum-joo takes is getting involved in Min-ah's case, the case that landed her in jail and almost killed the homeless girl who is now in Bok-geo's care. Working on the case and moving in with Bok-geo to care for Min-ah allows Geum-joo to see Bok-geo in a different light and vice versa. The cohabitation hijinks are supposed to be moving, but I find them to be dull. Bok-geo has been nurturing some serious feelings for Geum-joo and expressing them in the most immature manner possible and he shows a softer side around the fragile Min-ah, but it isn't enough to establish a romance that is shaky to begin with. Bok-geo's rivalry with Seok-woo is the same, completely underwhelming. Sadly, Seok-woo's one-sided love is also starting to lose its luster. Perhaps it's because he doesn't have the amazing scenes with Geum-joo anymore that crackled with energy.

Oh Sung's big mystery, the secret it was hiding that cause Bok-geo to drop out of the legal profession and Geum-joo to serve jail time has made its way to light. It's just more Oh Sung coverup with Scarface threatening young teenagers to get what Oh Sung wants. I suppose it would be much more moving if the show had made me care about the case, but it has failed to build true tension behind the case. Geum-joo isn't feeling that she's followed. Bok-geo isn't really acting scared for her well-being. There are so many small things that go into building tension and fear: music, lighting, staging. It's all lacking and not coming together.

photo777683.jpgphoto777687.jpg

One thing that remains strong, thankfully, is Geum-joo's will to live, to live happily, and to love what she does and do it with integrity. She's a model female character in that way and I greatly appreciate that. Hopefully baseball won't pre-empt any more episodes and we can build more on the story.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Woman with a Suitcase" Episode 10

 

photo781077.jpg

 

This drama is hard to truly understand because on one hand, it celebrates Geum-joo as an independent, fierce, smart woman. On the other, Beok-geo acts like a self-entitled man as he pushes her around every episode - and she likes it. The only times he is nice to her is when she's asleep. Otherwise he's picking on her in a most juvenile fashion. This does not, in any way, support the fact that women deserved to be treated as people and not as objects to be played with. Aside from this, the rest of the episode centers around an overly simplistic chaebol family feud that is not interesting in the least.

The one thing that Beok-geo does that redeems him is that he supports Geum-joo as she studies for her test. No matter what happens with him (like he becomes a murder suspect!), he pushes her to take the exam with encouragement, a gift for luck, and a lunchbox. He doesn't let her back off from her dreams, and that's admirable. Turning to Seok-woo, he's beginning to become a little intolerable himself. Not because of Lee Joon, who is doing a fine job with the character, because Seok-woo is overly persistent with a woman who is obviously not interested. This is a tired trope that I know is grounded in societal norms, but I would still like for it to change.

The further Hye-joo falls into the pit that is Oh Seong, the worse her attitude gets. She's like a starved dog who snaps at any hand that gets close. Her ambition and greed drove her to where she currently is. She let it blind her to the chirping of her conscience. I'm waiting for Geum-joo to get her license and knock her sister down a peg or two. I'd really like for Hye-joo to be the first to extend her hand to Geum-joo who has been nothing but good to her spoiled little sister.

More than that, however, I want this show to revel in the awesome woman that Geum-joo is. She survived a divorce, a year in jail, repeated professional humiliation, and severe estrangement from her sister. She climbed back onto her feet and worked to re-shape her life and set new goal for herself. The only thing holding her back, in my very loud opinion, is Beok-geo. As soon as he treats her right to her face, this story will feel settled.

This was a week of many endings and a few new beginnings, starting with Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, which took over the slot previously occupied by Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo. It started off at a strong 9.5%, blowing its competition out of the water, and finished out the week at an impressive 10.8%. The only show to come close was Woman With a Suitcase at 9.1%, meaning that it’ll be even more interesting to see how next week’s numbers shake out.

Hi @jei_em, @willenette! Thank you for updating the thread, I had problems logging in during WWAS and haven't even tried since then until today. It's a pity, as there are so many photos, videos etc from WWAS to share. Otherwise, I admit I almost forgot about the drama itself already, it was so-so, not too bad, but nothing special either, and I fairly enjoyed it at least until ep. 14. In any case, it didn't have the same emotional impact on me as EK or even MLE.  (shame, but I'm yet to watch the whole eps. 15 and 16, I've only watched JJM's scenes so far:))

Anyway, the most important development is that he left Fantagio, good luck with Huayi Bros., hope they'll manage his career better. In the meantime, it was announced he politely rejected the offer to star in the KBS drama "Father is strange" due to 'schedule problems', so waiting for some news soon.:crazy:

Hi meelis, thanks for sharing the photos. I feel sorry for you that you had a problem logging in here then. I also experienced the same thing, too before, so, you're not really alone. There's news that JJM is dating the C-actress Zhang Li.  Ahhh...............a Chinese girl for JJM. Well, they look pretty and maybe match well, too. This woman is pretty. A representative from his management agency confirmed that Joo Jin Mo is in a relationship with Zhang Li. Chinese media outlets released photos of them on vacation together in Japan. I hope we could get to see this. In case this is really true, congratulations to the new couple!:lol:

Joo Jin-mo Admits to Relationship with Chinese Actress
 
2017021600945_0.jpg
 

Actor Joo Jin-mo admitted to dating Chinese actress Zhang Li on Wednesday after the news came out in China.

Chinese online video company iQiyi said that Joo and Zhang enjoyed a date in Japan and published videos of the two taking pictures and eating meals together.

After the news, Joo unveiled photos of him and Zhang on a date on his Weibo account.

Rumors about their relationship first surfaced in July last year, but they dismissed them at that time and said they were just good friends.

They appeared in the Chinese TV series "Honey, I'm Sorry" together.

Joo Jin-mo and Zhang Li in a relationship

 

photo820429.jpg

 

Actor Joo Jin-mo is dating Chinese actress Zhang Li. They met through work and when she came to Korea, Joo Jin-mo took care of her and they eventually developed into a relationship. Joo Jin-mo denied this fact at first, but footage of them together was posted and he admitted to it in the end. They were spotted in Sapporo, Japan.

The scandal broke out last year as well but their managements denied it.

Joo Jin-mo debuted in 1999 and Zhang Li debuted in 2011.

Joo Jin Mo preview the script for the Bad Guys season 2 drama.

[스포츠조선 이승미 기자]주진모가 '나쁜녀석들2' 출연을 제안 받았다.

25일 주진모의 소속사 화이브라더스 측은 스포츠조선에 "주진모가 OCN 오리지널 드라마 '나쁜녀석들2'의 출연을 제안받았다"며 "현재 논의중인 상태다. 아직 정해진 건 없다"고 말했다.

한편, 강력범죄를 저지른 이들을 모아 더 나쁜 악을 소탕하려 하는 강력계 형사와 나쁜 녀석들의 이야기를 그린 강렬한 장르 드라마 '나쁜 녀석들'은 지난 2014년 방송돼 당시 OCN 오리지널 드라마 최고 시청률(4.128%, 닐슨코리아 전국기준)을 기록한 바 있다. 김상중, 마동석, 박해진, 조동혁 등 배우들의 열연과 스피디한 전개에 힘입어 큰 인기를 끌었다.

'38사기동대' 연출과 대본을 맡은 한동화 감독과 한정훈 작가가 의기투합했으며 '터널' '듀얼' '구해줘' 이후 편성될 전망이다.

Hi bibidep, thanks for sharing this good news. Finally..............there’s news about him to return in a dramaland with Kang Ha Neul. Damn, what a crazy line-up. Hmmm.......I actually love the cast so far. Yes – we could get to see him soon in the small screen. I like thrillers. I'm dying to see him in a thriller. I miss him! I enjoyed him in melodrama, “Beloved Eundong”. Joo Jin-mo is also pretty great in “Woman with a Suitcase”. He has sexy voice. His voice is so manly. I hope we won't be disappointed. Now, all we need is a good script. :lol:
