[Drama 2018-2019] My only one, 하나뿐인 내편

Recommended Posts

Why can everyone just mind their own dang business. That haelmoni of all people know what that society is like making relatives pay for the actions of other relatives more so someoone so cloase as a parent. She should have taken it to her dam grave. <_<

 

On the plus side see fake mother getting her hair dragged was glorious. :lol:

Mr Kang got too comfortable and complacent as well he should have gotten out of dodge sooner.

Hope no one finds out about MR and GR until near the  end and I hope MR will stand up to her vile mother and not let her leech of them.

I really don't get it with this haelmoni. See, Kang is pretty unhappy with how she butts in and act like a fairy godmother here. She turned Kang to be the worst father ever for abandoning and  keeping the secret from her. Tch.. that haelmoni is annoying! Idk I just don't like her now. Lol

it is a tactic on part of the writer. No one knows that Kang is Doran's real father. So how else can the truth be revealed? I mean remember there are so much complications and mysteries and we have I think 50 episodes left (not sure). So the writer needs a space to solve all the climaxes about Daya's father. Also poor Kang needs to find happiness too. How can he have it when there are so many secrets??

I know that. But still I feel that writer could find other way.  The writer made the haelmoni character so unlikable for me. I just can't understand why she's doing this. 

 

I agreed that he only can start seeking for happiness after he tells the truth. But most of all,  he needs to have a bravery to face DR, the person that needs his explanation more than anyone. 

 

How was last night episode? I will watch 4 eps (2 eps from last week) this weekend.

it is clear, she was afraid to die. She is having an operation. Also she knows nothing about Kang's crime and imprisonment

Ah... she's having an operation. Let's say so but that does not change that she should not telling someone else secret. I mean this idea of her thinking it'd be best for DR to know the truth while her father DC or Kang are hiding it from her all this time. DC was starting paranoid that DR would know the secret after this haelmoni appeared and pestering him about DR and Kang. Did she know that why things were sealed for a reason. That revealing something which she didn't know the consequences could hurt or ruin someone's happiness. I see that Kang is happy enough being around DR without her knowledge that he is her birth father. I'll try to understand haelmoni's reason for this but it won't sit well with me. Sigh. 

 

I think she knows he's going to jail, no?  Kang commended DR and asked her to send the baby to orphanage before he went with the polices who pick him up. And Kang told her to keep it a secret from anyone because he doesn't want DR or people know that he is her father. He doesn't want people look down or treat her bad because he has a father like him. These are information that she has enough so far.

yes, I remember now, she was holding the baby when the police came. But she felt sorry for Kang and Doran. Maybe she felt they needed each other??

I came across this drama recently and seem to have a few questions since I skipped a few episodes while trying to get a feel for this drama. Something I usually don’t do so please forgive me if these points have already been answered. I will be reading all the previous posts after posting this.

 

Spoiler

 

First of all, I am wondering if the grandmother can possibly be faking her condition. Perhaps I should clarify this question before people point out that a doctor already diagnosed her condition in an earlier episode. What I meant to ask is the grandmother faking her condition some of the time. Meaning if she has had let’s assume 6 episodes where she is searching for her missing sister what if only four of them are genuine cases while the other two she is simply faking them to test the people around her to figure out their genuine intent and how they treat her. For instance, I am sure that by now she can tell that her son genuinely cares for her wellbeing and all but she can’t be sure about how her granddaughter in law feels about her even though she pretends that everything is fine and all. This way Daya may eventually slip up and let everyone else know her true nature and all. Plus perhaps the grandmother also wants everyone to know the true nature of all those people that are faking to be nice and all so that they have a genuine basis to be with their significant others and all.

 

For instance, both her DiL and GDiL are people who are very good in hiding their true natures from their significant others to an extent. The DiL pretends to care about her but the simple truth is that she is just as selfish as Daya. Such as she will make an excuse to go out to meet her friends using the grandmother as an excuse. (she claims that she went out to purchase the grandmother’s favorite mango cake when in reality she went out to meet her friends. She did purchase it so as not to be shown that she was lying etc..) The DiL probably didn’t need to go to such lengths because the grandmother seems to be a reasonable person and would have probably allowed her to do so. Daya is in many ways similar she eyes the company and home already as hers and isn’t satisfied with what she has. For instance, could the necklace incident be a test of character that the grandmother was holding for both Daya and Doran. She wanted to see what each one of them would do given the circumstances. In Daya’s case she wanted to see if she would be satisfied with anything or would she go for something flashy ie the bigger necklace and would she still be satisfied if she got something other than what she was expecting. Perhaps the grandmother might have given her the big necklace on her own accord if she had chosen the simpler one on her own. The same could be said about Doran she wanted to judge her character and see what she would have done with the necklace that she gifted her (in her state). Since she never saw Doran with the necklace the grandmother probably assumed that Doran kept it with her all along until she spotted it on Daya’s neck. Naturally the grandmother couldn’t simply ask it back without giving up the game that she was faking her condition. Perhaps the grandmother also has other fears as to what the people would do to her if they did find out. Would they send her of a mental institute or an old people home just so that they don’t have to look after her.

 

Also isn’t it a bit odd the people that she seems to grow attached to are those that seem to be more pure of heart who don’t seem to want more and are easily satisfied with what they have. Doran seems to want nothing more and she just wants to help out of the goodness of her heart. She seems to get offended whenever the DiL or Daya try to pay her for her good deeds. The same can be said for Daya’s Aunt. She doesn’t seem to care about all those social barriers. For instance, she is rich and well off yet she seems to have fallen for a man that is in a lower social standard than hers. Infact Mr. Kim happens to be a driver or hired help yet she doesn’t see it that way and thinks of him as another regular human being. She doesn’t judge him for that and accepts him for who he is. If the grandmother discovered this, then she might simply approve of her as well. Plus, she needs more people to have fun with at her age.

 

Some may wonder how the grandmother even knows about the Aunt being like this. If I had to guess, I would surmise that the priest at the church must have informed her about this. We have to remember that Mr. Kim was someone that was recommended by him to her. It would thus make sense that he might have informed her that Mr. Kim was a regular at that church and that he was doing well and that recently he came across a nice lady who also seemed to be interested in him etc.. The grandmother could have gone to the church herself to check this out or even ask the priest to send a picture of those two to her. When she saw the Aunt she immediately recognized her as said woman but since she had never met her in person prior to this she couldn’t mention any of this without coming of as weird or suspicious. Perhaps this also helps her to find out what kind of person Mr. Kim is such as would he go after a rich woman because she was showing some kind of interest in him or would he ignore her and be a simple man etc..

 

Another question that I am curious about is Doran’s mother getting conned again. If that is the case, I have no idea what to say about her. On one hand I want to feel sorry for her but then on the other I want her to learn her lesson somehow I doubt that is going to be the case. I mean it is quite possible that both her and the loan shark are being taken for a ride but somehow I have my doubts regarding this. The timing is just to suspicious. Not only that but the amount that the loan shark was asking her was the exact amount that she got from Doran’s marriage. Now one can ask how did he even know about this ie she supposedly has that much on her. For that I would point out that again conveniently her friend that conned her is back (the woman that showed up at her place is that same person correct otherwise my guess is going to be wrong). The friend doesn’t know how Doran’s mother is still well off an assumes that the mother still had some money stashed on her and so she wants that to. Perhaps it is to pay of the people that are after her since it looks like she was conned to perhaps she has some loan sharks on her back as well or the same loan shark as well. So she approaches him with a scheme where they both come out as winners. She simply has to ask indiscreetly to Doran’s mother how much money she has on her and since Doran’s mother doesn’t suspect much tells her. She then informs the Loan Shark who comes up with a scheme to get that money of her and he knows that she is going to be an easy mark because she has already been conned once. After all why would such a big company look for investors like that. It is probably indeed going to end up bankrupt and this way the loan shark is going to take her money. As for the man that he met that day he is probably someone who owed him money at some point and was thus greeting him like that. There was no real conversation regarding the business nor did the mother actually verify on her own if that building was indeed being constructed by said company that the loan shark told her. Plus let us not forget something important. We have just reached the midway point and if Doran is happily married then we don’t really have much of a story. We would feel cheated if her mother has the perfect life and all. This means that she has to cause some more trouble and needs to get out of it. Her being conned makes perfect sense because this would lead her to being penniless once more and this time she can’t get anything out of it because she signed that contract with the grandmother where she promised her that she would never bother Doran regarding money anymore. This means that the mother will have to find her own means to get out of this mess. Hopefully she won’t force Miran to try and seduce the Dentist son of her boss to get out of this mess. But I fear that is what is going to happen.

 

Finally, what is up with Doran being the first person to discover her father’s secret. This is probably the second or third drama that I have watched where the main lead discovers the birth secret before the others. Another one where this happened was Hide and Seek. There seems to be another one but I can’t seem to recall it at the moment. Is this going to be the norm. Don’t know how I feel about that. But regardless of this the drama is sort of starting to feel a bit like Seyong My Daughter. There seem to be quite a few similarities between these two dramas in certain aspects.

 

The father attends his daughter’s wedding without her knowing this fact till much later on.

 

The father also ends up working for his In Laws without anyone knowing. Though in this case he was working for them from the start but over there he joins them later on especially after finding out about his daughter and wants to keep tabs on her if I recall correctly.

 

In both show the parent and child seem to have cut all ties with their family though in both cases it is for different reasons. Over there she cut of ties with her father because she didn’t want to do anything with him and had him declared dead or something to that extent and had lied to him that she was going abroad to study (yet she was aware of his existence). Over here it is the Dad that has declared himself dead of sorts. So until recently Doran believed that to be the case. Thus in this case it is him that has cut of all ties with his daughter.

 

Poor Doran is going to go through a hard time especially since she probably has no idea of what to do and who to confide her discovery. She probably isn’t going to confront her dad with what she knows because she is afraid that she is going to lose him and she won’t do the same to her husband because she has no idea how he will react to this news. Will he think that he was deceived by her and that those two colluded with each other so that she could marry him etc..

 

 

Anyway I think that things might just start to get interesting at this point. If I get time I will definitely be watching this drama and commenting on it. So far it seems to have a nice feel to it. Till next time take care all of you and hope that you enjoy it as well. If anyone can confirm the grandmothers condition will really appreciate it.

@yamiyugi to your questions. 

1. No, the grandmother (Madam Park) doesn't fake her illness. She really does have dementia. But her dementia makes her more sharp in judging people true nature and character. That is why she always credits those good people as someone she dearly knows as her family member or friends and acquaintances. And those who are fake behind their nice looks are not acceptable in her heart and become evil characters in her memory. 

 

2. Yang Ja, DR's foster mom, is a money-oriented and ambitious person. She loves wealth and full of jealousy. She was conned for her own stupidity and greed. She was conned second time? Lol,  I'm not updated with the latest episodes yet. So she really believe that loan shark offer then. Don't tell me that she leech off DR to pay her debt again this time. She's a ruthless and heartless mother to DR all her life. The only good thing she did is raising her (despite of her lack sincerity to do it). Sometimes, I feel that she has 1% of genuine love to DR but it is buried in the deepest down of her heart, among all those greed and selfishness she has. I guess she'll repent in the final episodes. 

 

I didn't watch the two dramas you referred but some family dramas usually have the same formula, I mean birth secret is listed as one of the so-called kdrama tropes which has been used over time. 

 

Yes, poor DR. She didn't do any mistake but she has to bear with all those burden now. I just hope her husband or the one who trust and love her in Wang's family won't turn their back once they find out the secret. Again, I blame this to DR's friend grandmother for her nosy and careless decision in telling her the truth. It will make her look like deceiving her husband and his family if they know that she knows all of this but didn't tell them. I hate that haelmoni. Really I want to like her but all she does is very annoying.

@stargazer187 DR was never the sharing burden type even before revolution so it will be really quiet difficult to navigate DR & WDR relationship after it.Would it be bad if she kept the secret for her self ,until she get used to the idea ? She need to be prepared for the two witches, they will think she knew who her father was before marrying to the family . 

 

But also I am with @celebrianna it’s good test to their love for each other , the end of the day secrets simply don’t exit behind close door or open door there is always somebody listening or confessing . She better tell him now before the situation get twisted .

@Ameera Ali I'm all agree to @celebrianna about the test of love. But I think she'll keep to herself like she always does and the secret will be revealed with the two witches joint venture in more evil and cruel way they could be. This scenario scares me and might slowly lessen its fun steadily.

It seems like she is damned if she does and damned if she doesn't ! 

I want her to stick with her promise to WDR

Choi Joo Song is amazing too. It is the first time I watch him, but really he and Uee made me cry today.

 

Mrs Park is the only one who knows now that Mr Kang is Doran's dad. But she is a very kind-hearted person. She already likes Mr. Kang. I think that DR might say that she is just considering Mr. Kang as her dad so as to keep the secret.

 

I am not expecting Doran to reject her father. When Daya and WDK mother learn about the truth, Doran will definitely choose her dad. Although this is sad for the OTP, but this complication is not really worrying me very much. Because I just want Doran to forgive her dad. But then Mr. Kang himself will feel so guilty for disrupting the happiness of his dear daughter :tears:

 

Like I said before, I am mainly watching this drama because the first episode attracted me very much as concentrating on poor Mr. Kang's agony and separation from his dear daughter. That is why I am not looking for romance in this drama.

 

But I am sure WDR won't leave DR, his mother will be the one to cause problems alongside Daya, that DR will have to go away, choosing her father not her husband.

I wonder when will DR stop addressing her husband with bungbujang-nim. Can she fix that call soon? :sweatingbullets:

 

So the MIl tried to tame her by making her doing housewife chores instead of working at the office. Obviously,  the MIL is plotting based on her evil DIL idea. 

 

Well, comment might change after I watch them later. Somehow,  I start losing my motivation to continue this now. So anyone please tell me is there something cute or sweet happens here or something that move our heart. I could be more motivated by them.

I keep studying his face and his subtlely that just conveys so much raw emotion. He is one great actor. They must do another drama together. They are an excellent team.
