Wedding Jokes x 2. 

Whether you ship a couple or not, you have to appreciate the sense of absurdity these scriptwriter and director have. They like to play inside jokes that probably aren’t meant to be seen until after the show and we know the final outcome of the husband-hunt. 

For instance, did you know that two weddings already occurred in the show? lol.

Remember how, in Episode 2, DS teases TK to drink his milk so he can grow up quickly and marry her? Well, DS’ wish actually comes true and the wedding happens before the episode ends.

Like this: 

After finishing a serious conversation with his future father-in-law (troll!), TK enters his quiet house and his gang surprised him with his birthday party aka THE wedding party.  

Presenting the groom, the bride, and the best men --

reply%201988%20episode%202%20birthday%20

He supplies the drinks for the wedding (yes, the groom always pays for the bar at the reception). TK gets liquor from his tournaments, apparently. 

reply%201988%20wedding%207_zpsnwqjl78r.j

JH is the photographer. All weddings must have a photographer. Look at the angle of his camera. His camera was focused on DS. Not TK so TK had to side-angle to face him. The resulting pic would have shown a couple shot, TK and DS, just like a wedding photo. 
reply%201988%20wedding%201_zpsdxkmwciu.j


JH also tells him to change his clothes because he looks like an “old man” in them, meaning, TK has grown old enough to marry DS in reference to the DS joke about drinking milk to grow up.

reply%201988%20wedding_zpsqe7isjnd.jpg


SW turns up the volume of the TV because what wedding is without blaring trumpets and loud organ music? 
DR is the crazy emcee ordering people around. 
Last but not the least, the DS grabs his hand and with joined hands, they cut the wedding cake (aka the birthday cake).  

reply%201988%20wedding%203_zpssqc5rtb5.j

The joke would have been fne if it ended here. But this is the part I like best.  JH kicks him for no good reason. Hahaha. Seriously, if I were JH, I'd do more than kick him for stealing the girl. Probably pummel him to pieces? 

reply%201988%20wedding%204_zpsjtimcwrv.j

However, this joke isn’t complete. This is only half of it. This was the Western wedding. The KOREAN WEDDING occurred in Episode 12 -- lol – during the lessons on cursing. 

Again, parody is strong with this scriptwriter/director duo.

Typically in weddings, the groom says the vow first and the bride repeats the same words. In this case, however, the teacher DS says with the curse words first, then the student TK repeats after her. They both have their solemn faces on, and if you ignore the fact that they are spouting @#$!@#%, it appears as if they’re reciting the wedding promise. 
reply%201988%20wedding%205_zpscxvgww3h.j

A picture says a thousand words.

The blanket covering the legs of JH, DR, and SW alludes to the paebaek ceremony. The parents sit in front of a low table with food. The couple sit on opposite sides of the table (in this case, a BADUK table, lol, nice detail, there) and an apron is spread between the bride and groom. Their parents will throw dates and chestnuts to the couple which they’ll try to catch with the apron. The number of dates and chestnuts caught will equal the number of future children. 

Oct2%2B069.jpg

 

Now, as I said, these are meta-jokes intended for TK-DS. I do notice that the scriptwriter sometimes do parallel stories, for instance, there’s a jwi scene for JH then there’ll be a jwi scene for TK, a chasing scene for JH, then a chasing for TK. Although the scenes aren’t exactly alike, each one advances an insight into couple interaction.  

I’m hoping that they’ll do a parallel wedding joke for JH, too. But who knows? Probably the reason they don't have these inside jokes for JH-DS is that their real wedding is not a joke. lol. 

@sheza Thanks for suggesting the affinity between JH’s father and DS. Yes, I’ll look into that and post my thoughts on it soon.  

@shooastrid no bad u..  but I guess, you knew that already. :D

Hahahahahaha! @packmule3  indeed you always exceed  our expectations ...your well trained eyes and analysis is consistently impressive, it's quite difficult to challenge your strong arguments...^_____^

Oh, and I just realised Sushi Town posted a photo yesterday on IG. Last year Dec, Bora, Sunwoo, Jung Hwan and Jung Bong went there to eat. I guess it's after filming. Only have autographs of Bora and Sunwoo (can't these two date in real life?!). 

I really miss seeing BTS of the whole group.

Ofc i can, not a problem. Its not the point in words or what they say but in voice. Husband stod up and went for a smoke so we cant see him anymore and then he shouted 아니라고/ not. So if you listen carefully and pay attention on voice and not on words you can hear husbands voice and it doesnt sound the same as husband  who was shown few sec ago.

 

Who's the husband then?

It`s RJYs voice. Anybody can call me delulu shipper I dont mind but since i`m a video and sound producer i always pay attention on sound whenever i watch something, inadvertently but out of habit. And i`ve already pointed out that I wrote that  from sound designers and sound editors point of view, but looks like people thought that i was trolling LOL:D

Just to add something: At first i thought that that was a bait just like what they did in R94 with showing the grooms back so the majority thought that Chilbong is husband. But nah since like no one noticed different voice, that was an endgame.

JB being a detective? It makes sense! He just like walking encyclopedia, knows anything that most people don't. Just like Detective Conan or Sherlock Holmes! kekeke

@carolinedl I thought in R97 there was a scene where TW giving advice about the student's future, no?

 I agree he sounds like that when he was arguing with sunwoo that duekson is the prettiest among the uglies

I was thinking that you were trolling So I dismiss your post (sorry).

But I'Ve look the video again...and it is kinda sound (or exactly sound) like RJY (the young Junghwan) !!!!! O_O

A chocolate theory…

There are many possible theories -- and conspiracy theories -- as to who the intended recipient of the chocolate was.  The adult DS could have given it to somebody else off-the-screen, and there’d be a flashback to explain it. She could have totally mis-remembered the chocolate and didn’t give it at all. 

But if we simply consider the props found at the time, it’s simple.

Jinjjoo was surrounded by four items: 3 schoolbags and 1 coat jacket. There were four boys inside.

DS ignored the two schoolbags which were located right beside her but reached over Jinjjoo to where the schoolbag with the coat jacket on top, was placed on the floor.  People naturally assumed that she was placing something inside the schoolbag. 

I think there’s a misdirection there.  DS was actually going for the coat jacket. She was putting the chocolate inside the coat jacket.  

The three schoolbags belonged to the three high school boys. Only one kid didn’t have a school bag because he didn’t go to school.

TK however wore a jacket to his baduk school.  She thought that the coat jacket belonged to TK. She didn’t know that the coat jacket belonged to SW because the jacket was folded. 

*****************

Now, it’s possible that I’m wrong, and that we’re still missing a minor subplot to explain the chocolate mystery.  I’m fine with that. 
 
However, script-wise, I thought there was an awful lot of emphasis on jackets. Didn’t you think so? THAT alerted me that things weren’t how they seemed. 

That morning started with DS borrowing her sister’s jean jacket. Her mother warned her not to. Then, SW noticed that the jacket belonged to her sister -- we all know now that this was a clue that SW was interested in her sister. But wouldn’t it be funny, too, had DS confused HIS jacket as belonging to TK?    

Afterwards, her sister came home early unexpectedly, and she began looking for her precious jean jacket. The mother then bothered the JH’s parents for the use of their phone and she called up the boys’ school. DR’s dad got involved and so did NoEul who was tasked to tell DS about their sister’s enraged hunt.  DS ran back home past JH’s brother who was playing at a videogame store. And his videogame momentarily transformed into a racing game with DS running furiously.

This whole mad 100-yard dash to return her sister’s jacket to its rightful owner was hilarious. But I thought that the scriptwriter had placed too many details in this jacket story MERELY to emphasize that their older sister was tyrannical.  Plus, if I were the director, I wouldn’t be able to justify the cost and time of moving people and equipment to several locations…to do what? To prove that DS was in big trouble? Nope. 

I thought this Bora jacket subplot was a big flag to keep an eye on the jacket, instead of the schoolbags.

Additionally, at TK’s party, JH mentioned TK’s jacket. Remove it, he said, you look like an old man. That line was superfluous to the script – that is, unless the scriptwriter meant to have a wedding parody… lol.  For me, anytime the scriptwriter leaves such an insignificant line in, then she probably means it to be important. ~ Chekov’s gun.    

Finally, when Bora tattled about the chocolate, I thought it was a fitting revenge for DS’ borrowing her jacket… and it could be an inside joke.  For borrowing Bora’s jacket without permission, she got bad karma, that is, the chocolate she mentioned in her diary didn’t reach the intended recipient.  

[Possibly another inside joke: for borrowing TK’s pink sweater without permission, she gets good karma. Really! The girl’s got to stop borrowing things. NoEul was right when he called a thieving btich. lol]

So there you go. I’ve presented to you my chocolate theory. And it’s just one out of many theories out there regarding chocolates so nobody should bust a gut over this one. 

As I said from the beginning, I don’t ship couples. I ship scripts, and I do find this script perfectly coherent and wildly amusing.  It’s become clear to me that the scriptwriter knew from the beginning who the husband would be. If she wants to switch direction in the next couple of episodes, I’ll be fine with that too because I’m confident that she’ll make it logical and consistent with the characters as she had written them so far.  I just read what she writes.

@shooastrid do you really want a baduk analysis or a Chinese checkers one? I think these two games are indicative of the contrasting approaches the scriptwriter used in creating the characters of TK and JH. But I’m not a lit major nor a writer, so what do I know, right? 

@sheza I haven't forgotten you. I will write my perspective on JH's father and DS. Again, when you go back to the script, the hint is there. Episode 2. 

reply%201988%20daughter%20in%20law_zpsar

Deok-Sung is the daughter that JH's father wished for. The way DS and JH's father LOVE their loved ones are so identical, they could be father-and-daughter. But I'll explain more with details later. 

 

 

@packmule3 Bravo! ^________^ I'm so speechless...

I respect your attentive approach but I'm very confident person myself when it comes to sounds/voices. Even when it's high pitched Junghwan's voice deeper (or if you're talking about same line his mouth was full with ramen obviously his voice came off different no?) compared to  husband's slightly husky voice *coughs* smoking .... If you noticed Taek's actor intentionally sounds husky too but that's definitely not clue not at all. It's just good acting kudos to both actors ^^
