[Drama 2018] Fluttering Warning / Love Watch, 설렘주의보

Recommended Posts

I was only able to watch the last two episodes today and I was glad that my analysis about the mother was correct. The moment she heard from her son CWH that the fire was linked to the chairman and his family, she got shocked and changed her mind about the marriage. I had written that the mother supported the decision of the marriage because she didn't know that she could have lost her son due to him...

Sure, her change of heart can be explained by other points: YJ's attempt to restore the relationship between mother and son, her gentleness although the mother had been rude to her aso. It was interesting to see that KHJ hurt his mother by telling her own story. She tried to make her feel guilty, however it didn't work as it made it clear that it was never about CWH's feelings, only about her own feelings and interest: her longing for a powerful family and recognition.

 

As for Han Jae Kyung, she wasn't aware of the change in the relationship therefore I understood why she made this kind of decision. But now she is facing a dilemma: what will she choose? Her career (the company) or YJ's happiness? The preview gives the impression that HJK will put pressure on YJ. Since YJ is part of the company (she owns shares), she needs to think about leaving the company, if her friend and director keeps saying that she should just dump CWH. 

 

Finally, I would like to point out that KHJ is playing with the fire, when she is using the media. The break up news was not well received by the fans and they feel that there is something wrong. Then CWH explained that he had to do it but he maintained that he loved her. Therefore if her future marriage with CWH is announced, then the netizens might realize that she used her "power" to force CWH to break up with YJ. Moreover, the journalists might question this sudden engagement and dig up the past: CWH is an illegitimate son aso. I doubt that the chairman would like to see this in the newspapers. KHJ thinks that with her position she can do anything, yet she is unaware of the power coming from the netizens. Imagine... they could decide to boycott Kang's products and even avoid Chaego company.

anyone counting the hours until tomorrow night like I do? :D

 

there's a scene of Kang Hye Joo which I did not get ...when she was talking to somebody then Woo Hyun was walking by, then she said "I have found the man..". Was she merely attracted to him at that moment? Or had she done her research and only made up her mind at that moment?

Wow. I couldn’t agree more with your opinion. It would be interesting if the novel writer also has the same train of thoughts. 

 

Or better yet, CWH agreed to wed KHJ and left her at the altar. *evil laugh*

Wasn't there a scene in the first episode where her dad told her that she was out of the family if she didn't get W H to marry her?  My memory is fuzzy but it was something like that.  She surely has a reason for being so determined.

 

hi there, @thistle,

 

I wrote my reply to you in my blog. I'll just put an excerpt here to avoid making this post long.

 

I don’t think it was explicitly said that Wannabe Wife was going to be disowned by the family if she didn’t get WH to marry her.

 

However, she did receive a phone call, in Episode 3, while she was exercising on the treadmill where she was told she would have to "give up everything she was aiming for." Her goal could be interpreted as being the Madam of Choego group and/or being a cherished daughter of her father's family.

 

According to the subs, she said “Chairman” when she answered her phone. That's why I originally thought she was speaking to WH’s dad, Chairman Cha. Here's their conversation:

 

Chairman: You still haven’t confirmed the marriage details with Cha Woo Hyeon?
Wannabe Wife: We’re just getting to know each other better so please give me more time.
Chairman: You said if I created the context you could make Cha Woo Hyeon ours and be seated atop Choego Group. I trusted you to come this far because you were so confident.
Wannabe Wife: Yes, I know that well.
Chairman: If you can’t keep your promise to me, and miss that chance to align closely with Choego Group, you’re going to have to give up everything you’re aiming for now.
Wannabe Wife: Yes, Chairman.

 

Flashback to when she first met WooHyun. She was saying on the phone, “In order to cover the issue of my birth, we need to marry a son of a top five family. A talent that can be seated as the leader of the group.”

 

When she spotted WH walking by (yeah, right! What a coincidence, eh?) she decided, “I found my match.”

 

After that flashback, she vowed to herself, “I will definitely not miss it, Father.”  :( That's when I realized that the "Chairman" she was addressing to earlier was her own father.

 

This odd father-daughter phone conversation substantiated what she told WH in Episode 2. She said her family’s lack of interest in her until she received a marriage proposal.

 

Her words: I’m also a child of wedlock. When I was seven, I moved into my father’s house. But I have no memory of ever being treated like family or as a person. I was only ignored and was an outcast. But because of the marriage proposal with you, for the first time I became someone important in my family.

 

Also, in Episode 3, shortly before Chairman Cha was going to announce WH's transition as the company’s leader, she met her father in the company of Chairman Cha.

 

Kangan: I heard my HJ has been racking up a lot of favors recently. (Meaning, she’s been asking for favors, NOT granting favors.)
Cha: What favors? She’s so smart that I’m the one taking the help for granted.
Kangan: I’m so grateful to hear that. Anyway, with our new structure, I hope that our Cheogo group and Kangan group will become an organization that will lead South Korea into the future.
Cha: (laughing) Very well said. Your participation would be essential.
Kangan: Are we some strangers when we’re going to become family?

 

To me, Chairman Kang came off as fulsome or flattering in his appreciation of their partnership. When he told Cha that his daughter had been asking for favors, he was expecting to be denied graciously by Cha. He was "humble-bragging” about HJ in order to praise their great new partnership of the Cheogo and Kangan groups.

By the way, SaHyeon, the Other Son, was among the entourage, walking beside his mother.

 

Then Wannabe Wife arrived. WH’s father smiled at her but her own father pounced on her.

Kang/her father: When’s WooHyun coming?
Wannabe Wife: (looking at Chairman Cha who smiles back and nods at her): Any minute now, Father.

 

Her father frowned at her, side-eyed Chairman Cha, then gave her a displeased look.

i didnt like the way she spoke to WH's mother......it was honestly very disrespectful.....so what if she isnt the legal wife....just a kept woman? still she is your elder....

 

she spoke as if she knew everything!

 

Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!


@angelangie is on a warpath now. :lol:

 

I agree. The way she spoke to WH’s mom is vastly different from the way YooJung spoke to his mom.  Although the mom minced no words in telling YJ that she disapproved of her, YJ was deferential, understanding and appeasing. She even tried aegyo on her -- which worked! (But if she were my in-law, I’d limit my meetings with her to family gatherings like Thanksgiving, Fourth of July, and Mother’s Day where there would be tons of witnesses to deter me from committing homicide. hahaha.)

 

This Wannabe Wife however spoke with zero aegyo. She spoke in a matter-of-fact style. She forgot that she was in a tearoom (not a boardroom) with a potential mother-in-law and that she needed to be more deferential in tone.  

 

WW: Mother, I received a part of the business from my father in order to support WH. 
Mom: Is that so? (coldly)
WW: It’s a medical and biological engineering business. It’s the business that Chairman Cha wanted the most of those in Kanghan Group.
Mom: Well, if it has to do with anything medical, then my WH would do wel;
WW: Yes, it’s a business that my father put a lot of effort into. He says that he’ll give it to WH if he marries me. 
Mom: Really? (coldly again)
WW: WH needs this kind of weapon in order to be able to fight against Chairman Cha’s brothers, and CEO Cha SeHyun as well as Chief Director Go Kyeong Won.

(up to here, Wannabe Wife was nice to her)

Mom:  But what should I do? My WH dislikes both Choego Group and you.
WW: You have to change WH’s mind. 
Mom: It wouldn’t matter. My WH is the type who won’t do something until he dies if he doesn’t want to do it. 
WW: Do you wish him to live as a person with no father, siblings, background, or roots because of you, Mother? 
Mom: What do you mean, no roots? How could you talk like that? 


The mother objected to WW saying that she wasn’t a “root” for WH. Here, I understood roots to signify family bonds, connections, heritage, and values. If WH didn’t agree to this marriage/merger/whatever, then he would lose whatever connections he had with the Cha family. (Which was non-existent anyway…lol.) 

 

On one hand, mentioning “roots” is a definite slur to her being an unwed mother. The Wannabe Wife had no business pointing this out to her. But on the other hand, because WooHyun is illegitimate and he did have to suffer society’s stigma and ostracism. Bloodlines matter, in a Confucian culture, not to mention a hierarchical and PATRIARCHAL society. So the Wannabe Wife is only stating the obvious. 

 

But for us viewers, there’s an added layer to this interpretation. We know that WH’s mother had been a … hmm… what’s the nice word for this?… a CASUAL parent. She wasn’t there for him when he needed her. 

 

So yes, I agree the mom had the right to be offended here. She could be offended either because WW was rude to her or because her conscience pricked her.  

 

To continue…
  
WW: I heard this countless of times as I was growing up. The mother who gave birth to me tried to commit suicide and even decided to emigrate so that I wouldn’t hear things like that (meaning that she had no father, siblings, background, or roots). So they sent me to Father’s house. 

 

Here I think it dawned on the mother that this crazy, hateful, determined, greedy girl was also a deeply-troubled one. She suffered, too, as an illegitimate child.  

 

So yes, I think WW’s approach was wrong. She could have been subtler when she shared her sad childhood story. Remember, YooJung also shared her sad story about her estrangement with her father. But she did it with a lot more finesse and tact. 

:D

@packmule3 do i sounds like im on warpath? lol :D 

 

one of the vast different in between WW and YJ is that WW did it for the sake of her own....

 

yes she told the mother without tact that what WH will gain and how it will benefits him....she didnt went to understand....she only assumes....she assume since that WH is of the same status as her in their individuals family then being recognize under the so call 'chaebol' family is one of the best thing that could happen to them...

 

she put her own expectation on WH, and also what she can gain with it......while the way she present to WH's mom does sounds like ...

 

"Oh WH will have this and this and this...." but in reality it sounded to me like "Oh I will have this and this and this....."

 

but in YJ case, she wanted to be with WH ....because she started to like him....and she just want to be with him and what she put forth is on his thoughts and what is the best for him....as u said with finesse and tact...with tons of aeygo too lols.....

 

however one thing for sure....when she did it....her main thought and main reason was 'What can I do for him / how can I help him.'

 

how it will benefits her never did cross her minds.....she knew the mother didnt approve of her from the beginning was because she has hope that WH will ended up with WW instead of YJ and the mother was very upfront about it...however since her lies was find out and WH air out his thought with the mom through YJ helps....from then on the mother respected her son wishes and only now want what is the best and also as long as WH is happy....

 

she had also openly admitted that at least WH is of a better judge on a person characters than she will ever be.....

 

while we got to admit when WW present what and how it will benefits **ahem** WH if he married her.....mom did shake out a little however instead of rushing and started siding with WW, she now went to WH...ask him about it and after hearing what WH said about it....she supported her son fully

Thank you for making such a detailed answer.  There is a lot to think about with the motivations of the two Chaebol (did I spell that right?) families.  Truthfully, I don't understand power-hungry people like those, and it bothers me when characters are so pushy with members of their own families.   

 

If this drama wants to continue to tug at our heartstrings, I would expect that we should be shown another side to HJ's character because no one is really only evil.   I have no sympathy for her (neither do most people, it appears), and that seems wrong.  There should be some balance, so I hope that we will hear more about her motivations.

@thistle Actually, I am not bothered by KHJ's behaviour and actions. The description of her childhood and the scenes with her father underline perfectly why she is so determined to get married to CWH. She doesn't realize how wrong her actions are because of her selfishness and past trauma. Since she was never acknowledged and was always treated like nothing by her own family (her father's), she had to become "selfish" in order to "survive". If she hadn't been like that, she would have kind of disappeared. Her existence would have been denied. So the circumstances of her life turned her into a selfish person. Her strength became her flaw in the long run as she stopped looking at others. 

Then like @packmule3 illustrated it, she feels herself like she has no roots. In her eyes, she can only exist when she gets married. Only with her marriage, her father will recognize her and treat her better, besides she will have her own family. Sure, she is also projecting her own mentality into CWH. Since he had a similar past, she also believes that CWH has the same wish and desire. She is not entirely wrong: CWH has been longing for a family and father too which is the reason why he sees YJ's father as his own father and why he put two bowls on the table, when he used to eat alone. Nonetheless unlike KHJ, CWH is smart enough to realize that belonging to a powerful family will never give him that feeling of family and love. KHJ is in that matter too naive. First, CWH witnessed the fight between his father and his step-mother, he also noticed that his step-brother was unhappy himself. Another explanation why KHJ and CWH think totally differently is that his own mother had a different approach how to resolve the problem with the lack of roots and connections: she did not run away (moving abroad) in order to hide like KHJ's mother who tried to commit suicide, his mother chose to find another man in her life. Yes, she failed... as she got divorced so often, however due to her marriages, CWH found a hyung. He was able to connect to others, while KHJ has been focusing on herself all this time. The choice of his career is another explanation: CWH wanted to ensure that nothing connects him to his biological father, KHJ did the exact opposite. She decided to work for her father (his company) thinking that this might create a bound between her and her father but she failed. 

Finally, we shouldn't forget that CWH almost died in the fire which created a huge riff between him and his biological father. So far, KHJ has not been hurt physically by her own father. 

 

@angelangie@Far^away In my opinion, KHJ's background should be revealed as well so that her father's reputation is tarnished. KHJ became like that because of him... the two fathers should experience the disgrace she and CWH have been facing but the best punishment would be that they are abandoned by their own family. Both fathers are terrible, they only care for their own interest: their company.

That is a good point.  But I think that finding a reason for selfish behavior is one thing, and excusing it is quite another.  The first is understandable; the second only encourages more of the foul behavior.  It is essentially the difference between the way an adult behaves and the way a toddler does.  We expect an adult to be capable of action but a child is only capable of reaction.  HJ is acting like a selfish brat, and she should be capable of so much more.

 

IMHO, it is incumbent upon each person to rise above whatever circumstances that surround them--that we should attempt to overcome the things that have harmed us, that we should do better than those who have shown us only cruelty.  Thus, I am really very bothered by a character's unworthy and unkind behavior.  And I would like to be shown some humanity to her character--saying that she has been harmed is not enough; she needs to reach past her own injury to help another.

When I wrote my last comment I was not excusing her selfish behavior. I just explained why she acted like that. Honestly, people like her do exist, I know someone like her. They will hurt others because they are so blinded by their own "suffering" or interest that they simply don't care what happens to others. They sometimes hurt others intentionally but they justify their own actions because of their "trauma" or their "imagined pain caused by others".

I think it's also because she can't understand his perspective that life could be better outside the shadow of the Chaebol family. She's spent her entire life trying to win her way into the family and into her father's affections. Since we now know that her mother attempted suicide multiple times, we can assume she's looked to her father and his family for her identity and security. If marrying CWH wins her that it's worth almost any price. I also believe that she believes that's best too, that the best thing she can do for him is reunite him with his father, bring him back into his family, and secure his future by setting him up with an awesome and successful business.

 

When looked at like that, and blind and numb to any concept of love, I can totally understand why she is behaving as she does.

She's behaving how she is because the dad has totally Pavloved her. He keep her close enough to the table just to use her. She not questioning why should she have to jump through hoops, what did they do to her mum to make her suicidal, usually outside kids are keep at a distance even if financially support... So why bring me close, let me sit a the table while threatening to pull the seat away when I sit. She has no resentment towards them because they've managed her well. 

Man she should be milking them for all she can get...build a nice stash.... Bring the house down and run away to a nice beach and cocktails life somewhere...

There, @bebebisous33 If your post were the Declaration of Independence, I’d sign on.

 

a9hm572.jpg

I'm going to break down your post so I can respond properly. Your original comment will be blue; my response is in black. 

 

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

 

@thistle Actually, I am not bothered by KHJ's behaviour and actions. The description of her childhood and the scenes with her father underline perfectly why she is so determined to get married to CWH. She doesn't realize how wrong her actions are because of her selfishness and past trauma. Since she was never acknowledged and was always treated like nothing by her own family (her father's), she had to become "selfish" in order to "survive". If she hadn't been like that, she would have kind of disappeared. Her existence would have been denied. So the circumstances of her life turned her into a selfish person. Her strength became her flaw in the long run as she stopped looking at others. 

 

>>I disagree with her decisions and course of action although I understand her motivations. She’s not a madwoman, let’s put it that way. The writer didn’t write her as a sociopath or a psychopath. Two things I do like about her -- if I may say so without getting killed here, lol -- are her honesty and good taste. I didn't notice these qualities until later on.  

 

On one occasion, in Episode 2, WH went to his father's office and accused him of taking away his medical privileges. He said, "You stripped my medical gown from me, blocked me from treating my patients. That's an act more cruel than snatching Choego Group from you." His father was confused. 

 

Shortly after WH left, the Wannabe Wife came to visit him too. And he asked her, point-blank, if she did that to WH's hospital? She didn't even hesitate. She answered, "Yes. WH said if he comes to want something, there's a possibility to negotiate for our marriage." 

 

Very very warped of her but the father laughed. I'd rather that she was totally honest about her misdeeds than blame somebody else. 

 

pCrr80E.jpg

 

Then on another occasion, she openly admitted to him, "Honestly, at first, I wanted to be the wife of Choego Group. Instead of becoming of CWH's wife, I thought I had to become your daughter-in-law. (meaning, Choego Group >>> CHW) But the more I see him, my heart keeps going to WH. Even if WH doesn't want to come to work at Choego Group, I don't want to lose him."

 

The father again commended her honesty. 

 

Xu3i9Gk.jpg

 

 

Me? I commend her good taste. lol. Of course, WooHyun was a better proposition than Choego Group! Even an impoverished WooHyun is better than a world-famous Choego Group. To me then there's still hope for her if she can recognize the value of a good person above all. 

 

Then like packmule3 illustrated it, she feels herself like she has no roots. In her eyes, she can only exist when she gets married. Only with her marriage, her father will recognize her and treat her better, besides she will have her own family. Sure, she is also projecting her own mentality into CWH. Since he had a similar past, she also believes that CWH has the same wish and desire. She is not entirely wrong: CWH has been longing for a family and father too which is the reason why he sees YJ's father as his own father and why he put two bowls on the table, when he used to eat alone.

 

>>Yes, she thought that she and CWH were hewn from the same cloth. They’re both illegitimate children, the outcasts in very elitist families. Top five family, right? 

 

To the outside world, they project the image of success, competence, self-reliance, and self-assurance. She’s the managing director of the flagship (I’m assuming) Kanghan Hotel while he’s an award-winning, internationally-trained doctor.

 

However, they’re both loners. She’s mostly seen with her aide while he admits to growing up by himself and to doing solitary activities.  

 

On paper, the two of them would appear identical in personality and taste. 

 

Nonetheless unlike KHJ, CWH is smart enough to realize that belonging to a powerful family will never give him that feeling of family and love. KHJ is in that matter too naive. 

 

>>Yes. I guess that fire can be seen as beneficial in the sense that it was an eye-opener for him. It allowed him a complete break from his toxic family so he was able to forge his own identity and his own destiny away from them.  

 

First, CWH witnessed the fight between his father and his step-mother, he also noticed that his step-brother was unhappy himself. Another explanation why KHJ and CWH think totally differently is that his own mother had a different approach how to resolve the problem with the lack of roots and connections: she did not run away (moving abroad) in order to hide like KHJ's mother who tried to commit suicide, his mother chose to find another man in her life. Yes, she failed... as she got divorced so often, however due to her marriages, CWH found a hyung. He was able to connect to others, while KHJ has been focusing on herself all this time. 

 

>>Exactly! No matter how disenchanted he was with his mother’s flightiness and multiple divorces, he was still better off in that family situation than he would ever have been in the Cha household.  Money and power weren’t the end-all and be-all of his existence. 

 

The choice of his career is another explanation: CWH wanted to ensure that nothing connects him to his biological father, KHJ did the exact opposite. She decided to work for her father (his company) thinking that this might create a bound between her and her father but she failed. 

 

>> Yes. Because he didn’t grow under his father’s shadow, he didn’t have to live by father’s rules. I wish she had the same option. She's forced to play her father’s games OR forfeit his approval and her position in his family. Terrible choice to make, right?  

 

Finally, we shouldn't forget that CWH almost died in the fire which created a huge riff between him and his biological father. So far, KHJ has not been hurt physically by her own father. 

 

>>Yes, that fire was devastating. IF that was indeed the same fire where YJ's mother died, then it had far-reaching consequences. However, for WH, the fire was also his catalyst. His character is the way it is today because of that incident.

 

He’s stronger, independent, resilient, and thank goodness! divorced from that family.

  

The Wannabe Wife’s whole argument was about “having roots.” But as seen in hers and WH’s examples, if the roots were planted in bad soil, then the seedling wouldn’t have grown beautifully anyway. It’s better to just uproot the plant and relocate it where it can thrive.  

 

@angelangie Far^away In my opinion, KHJ's background should be revealed as well so that her father's reputation is tarnished. KHJ became like that because of him... the two fathers should experience the disgrace she and CWH have been facing but the best punishment would be that they are abandoned by their own family.

>>Yes. They’re all disgraceful although, as I said in my blog, I still haven’t figured out WH’s father’s motivations. I’ve been ignoring all of the subplots and letting them all come to a head. He IS getting mixed readings on my radar so I’m holding off on any judgment on him for now. 

 

In sum, many villains in contemporary stories are not the same villains of yesteryears. Whereas before the villains would be written as completely monstrous and sadistic, there’s a current trend among more mature and experienced writers to HUMANIZE the enemy. Savvy writers have learned to deconstruct evil and to assign mitigating factors like extreme hardship, childhood abuse, systemic corruption, unspeakable mistreatment, etc. More likely than not, the villains are compelled to do a “necessary” evil and that’s why they’re tragic figures. If we were to carefully assess their flaws, we'd see that they were, in some way or another, victims, too. 

 

And I see that the writer of this kdrama taking this route because this is a romcom anyway, not a melodrama. 

 

It’s rare nowadays to see black-and-white characters. They’re usually 50 shades of Grey…errr… gray. :D

@packmule3 Thanks for the compliment! But while reading your post, I came to realize that you are right. There is room for redemption for KHJ. You underlined two positive aspects:

- she is honest and straightforward

- she can recognize a good person: "But the more I see him, my heart keeps going to WH. Even if WH doesn't want to come to work at Choego Group, I don't want to lose him."

This exact words illustrate that she is actually following the advice from YJ's father. The latter had said that a person dates the woman he loves, he marries a good person! So KHJ has even come to the conclusion that CWH is the perfect man for her. It is not just about the pressure coming from her own father. KHJ recognizes that he is a good and decent person. Although she keeps pushing him, he never mistreats her or looks down on her, he is just firm in his declaration. That's why she is not interested in the brother who was involved in scandal aso. CWH has been working on his own... while she forced him to quit his job, he didn't complain, he tried to find a new job on his own. So if she was married to him, he would treat her with respect, something she has been missing. 

CWH's mother has always loved him and despite her neglect, CWH was well aware that his mother loved him. On the other hand, the attempted suicide of KHJ's mother leaves a different impression: her pain and disgrace was more unbearable than her love for her daughter. This was never the case with CWH. 

It would be interesting if the moment KHJ is excluded by her own father and she thinks, she has reached the bottom, she realizes that she is not alone and she hasn't lost everything. The secretary has been by her side all the time.

Miss stalker will look stupider than she already is .The way she doesn't pick up signs that are straightforward is beyond me. It's not like He is good at hiding his feelings.

 

Yes, I empathise she was raised up in an abusive household , but she is an adult and educated young woman she needs to be held accountable for her actions .Especially to the extent when she’s going around acting like a brat, and hurting other people’s feelings and playing with their life.

@angelangie@Far^away In my opinion, KHJ's background should be revealed as well so that her father's reputation is tarnished. KHJ became like that because of him... the two fathers should experience the disgrace she and CWH have been facing but the best punishment would be that they are abandoned by their own family. Both fathers are terrible, they only care for their own interest: their company. 

 

that will be a far punishment for them honestly lols :D they reap what they sow after all :P 

 

u know eventually when u return to the after world.....do they think they can bring the 'company' with them as well?

 

WH & his brother is not interested in the company at all......they deems it as so so so important but to them it was something they could do without....and prefer not to have it either......
