With the title being My Only One, I am still trying to figure out who they are talking about. 

 

If I am not mistaken, there was a scene, several episodes back, after driver Kang was revealed as Do-Ran's father. During the scene, Dae-Ryook's family, particularly her MIL, confronted Do-Ran about the revelation, implying that she needs to take a distance from Mr Kang. At that moment she said that she could not do that, as he was "My Only One".

This shows that in this serial, the principal lead seems to be Mr Kang.

In week end dramas, the principal leads are often the elder leads.  Past week-end drama titles, such as "My Golden Life" and "The Man who Sets the Table", also referred to the elder leads in those dramas

With the title being My Only One, I am still trying to figure out who they are talking about.  Is it DR and WDR, WYR and DY, GR and MR, or Kang and HJ?  I am guessing it is supposed to be DR and WDR so they need to start getting them back to together real soon. 

 

 

To answer your question, I think the title speaks for all the couples in the drama.  But the emphasis is put on Kang and DR that even if the world points their fingers at her dad, she would be the one that stands next to him and protect him.  Then, at the same time, it speaks just as loud, if not louder for the other couples well.  For example, as for HJ and Kang, she would not leave him if she has to die, that might be a little too strong, anyway, even after she found out that he was ex-criminal, she still chooses to stay with him and be his umbrella.  Moreover, even after she found out about the big bomb, she still chooses to stay with him (but her sister prevented that).  That is why personally I really like HJ and Kang, I thought their love story was beautiful, yet painful to watch.  Also, as for MR and GR, when MR's mom didn't want her to stay next to GR, she still chooses to be next to him and protect him like how he protected her.  

 

But, more importantly, I think the title gives a real meaning behind it that in our life there will be at least one person, whether that's your parents, lovers, siblings, or friends, next to you and be there for you through times of trouble.  I really like the title. 

 

Does anyone else think HJ is pregnant?

Think back to the incident with HS when they ended up at the police station. The way how TP spoke made it seem like he had some sort of law background or at least a good knowledge of it. So I'm thinking he'll end up being a bigger force in terms of getting Mr Kang exonerated. His chaebol power will be stronger than WDR and if there's a law connection some how make it easier  through TP's connections for them to launch an acquittal campaign. 

 

How heartless are DY and EY, the way she just callously said the old woman will die soon so just hang in there to DY. Halmoni needs to make em all bald. They honestly have no appreciation for the fact that this luxurious lifestyle and status that they have is all off ha!moni's years of hard work. Also how thick is DY she literally brought nothing into the family except her whiney bratty self, while this other girl is a chaebol daughter. Does she not realise how much lower down the totem poll she'll and that her aspirations of be the lady of  company are over. A small part of me was hoping out of spite that WDR marries her and she turned out to be a horrid daughter in law who treats EY and DY like they're peasants and gives them a taste of their own medicine,

 

As for this kidney storyline........urgh. It's just doubling down on how nasty most of the characters are. Guess it gives them something even bigger for them to feel repentant for when Kang is proven not guilty. However at this point if any of them do feel remorseful when all is revealed it will just be in passing because at the end of the day even without the murderer tag they would still feel Kang and DR are beneath them, The level of entitlement and the callousness to the risk for the living donor, that they've shown they'd probably think the peasant like Kang should help those above him anyways, think EDW taking blood to save the emperor with no care for the intended recipient level entitlement. For me most of them are irredeemable, short of some serious personality changes I don't see how they can be redeemed and I hope we don't end up with everyone playing happy families all is forgotten at the end. They are not worthy to have people like Mr Kang and Do Ran in their family.

 

Oh okay I watched that scene w/o subs so I didn't know, though I have been thinking it'd be great if TP had a law background (like, can the writers suddenly turn him into a lawyer please? :lol:). Speaking of which, what in the world happened to DR's dream of studying law? I bet the writers have completely forgotten that...

 

That's exactly what I've been saying! Mr. Kang and DR deserve much better. I'm one of the few people here who do not want DR to reunite with WDR. And I love the Kang-HJ couple, but unless she cuts ties with her family (which I guess is not gonna happen), I'm afraid I don't want them together either.

 

Btw it's the liver, not the kidney :)

I'm Guessing here but you may get your wish when it comes to WDR and DR , In next weeks preview WDR Mom as usual is up to old tricks , I dont know why rich folks think everything can be solved by money , Anyways WDR Mom throws a envelope of money at DR at the hospital,  I'm not sure but maybe it's to get her to steer clear of WDR, So she can hatch here plan to get him with the rich girl. That girl rich or not she will never hold a candle to DR.

 

Also as someone mentioned it seems like she is hiding something. Her body  language reeks of anterior motive all over. But I'm grasping at straws what do I Know this Kdrama land anything goes.

I saw that too. That shameless woman, I have no words for her...

 

Actually what I wanna see now is WDR and TP working together to help clear Mr. Kang's name. They both love and want to protect Kang and DR, and if TP really has the educational and social backgrounds as we predict, it'll be easier for WDR to work with him. I know dramas where the first and second male leads end up working together to help the female lead, so I'm getting my hopes up for this drama.

 It doesn't seem as if there is time to develop anything more with TP, so again, that raises a question of why he was brought on, and whether the writer had planned for TP to have a bigger role in some way which was then later scrapped?

When he was brought in and revealed to have a chaebol background, my first thought was that he would help prove Mr. Kang's innocence (since he was someone I could see Mr. Kang confiding in and would be in a position to see the loan shark lurking around and get suspicious) and would use his connections to do so which would lead him back to his grandfather. But WDR is playing that role which makes sense since he's a main character so I don't know. 

 

Maybe like @luvabe said WDR and TP can work together.

DY has some cunning, but she's actually not very smart at all. She doesn't understand that she doesn't hold a candle to a chaebol daughter, and that she's going to be the one to have to accommodate the other girl versus getting her own way with her various tricks all the time. I'm kind of with you in wishing that WDR does end up with the rich girl so that we can see the rich girl just thoroughly put DY down for being too above herself, and getting DY to do her little errands as the younger sister-in-law. WDR is too nice to deserve that kind of hell of living in a family with his mother, the rich girl, and DY, but oh well. If he was actually weak enough to get dragged to the altar by his mother, then I wouldn't have any sympathy for him. Though, I guess before he liked DR, he actually liked the rich girl? I don't remember any more, but I think his mother mentioned that WDR had used to like the rich girl, and so should give her a chance now.

 

It's such a tired trope to think that all a child has to do is marry someone rich in order to be happy and better off. Specs and background are important to Korean parents, but this is now a caricature where the parent just has no regard for their child's wishes at all in her blind pursuit of more money through marriage.

Totally. The way it's written, Mr. Kang and DR are basically self-sacrificing angels, and they would never be appreciated in the Wang household. Heck, even before the Kang's ex-con background was revealed, the mother and DY were in a constant uproar.

 

Btw, I wouldn't be happy with a happily ever after ending for everyone in this drama either. A number of characters are just thoroughly disgusting, and possibly to provoke viewer reactions, have been made pretty extreme in their petty nastiness. I mean, it's actually not true evil in that it's not murder and mayhem. It's just self-indulgence, arrogance, and a narcissistic point of view to the extreme. 

 

Still, given how HJ and Kang were finally married off with HJ moving back in with Kang, I think this drama is headed to a happily ever after ending for all. My only question now has to do with DY. She has shown no evolution of character at all, and remains a bratty, self-entitled princess wannabe. There isn't even any cuteness or sincerity of feeling for her family to soften her negative characteristics. Btw, I'm not sure if that lack of sincerity is a writing thing or an acting thing, probably both. For instance, it shows in how even with GR being ill, she thinks first about how it will impact her and her position, which I think is a writing thing. However, the actress' constantly shrill delivery takes even moments where DY is supposed to be upset over her brother and turns it into a Punch and Judy moment.

Nice thought. Given the press that TP got for joining the show, it would be really nice if he actually had a key role to play in proving Kang's innocence at least. So, DR collects all the evidence, including new testimony from the original witness about his original perjury, and TP is able to get it back into the courts? That would be cool, though, that isn't really in keeping with what has preoccupied most of this drama thus far.

can anyone recall what was DoRan studying at the beginning of series?

I thought it was law. If that is correct, her education should show input with the murder storyline instead of all this crying aggravation! 

Hate seeing DoRan in the pits. and very frustrating seeing everyone in drama call her the murder daughter. She didn’t do anything wrong!! 

Agghhh so frustrating...

 

As for DaeRyook,  Wonder why he didn’t correct his mother about his true feeling toward So Young.   was his non answer “back up” plan in case he couldn’t get DoRan back?  The preview breaks my heart.  Seeing DoRan cry in the corner as DaeRyook looks on in distance. Unable to hold her, and wipe her tears away. 

 

Sigh. no wonder I watch comedy after watching this drama. need uplifting happiness.

You are correct  she was studying law. Had she taken the  bar she would be a lawyer by now. I am took heart broken with DR and WDR it's hard to watch . As for the rich girl she's not pretty like DR , Sweet like she is or kind and humble. WDR has shown zero interest in her. There is no chemistry there , Like said before and say again she will never hold a candle to DR. And Also in a earlier episode WDR told DR you are my one and only .

I do either its MR , HJ, DR, But being she the one

passed out it's very possible . And they also blurred out the face of the person in the Ob doctors office in the preview.

The actual Korean title is something like The Only One Always on My Side.  So not necessarily about a romantic connection, but about how there is that one person who is always on your side.  I think it was meant to originally refer to Kang and DR (DR growing up an orphan and yet there was always someone who was on her side).  But, these titles usually refer to a whole host of people, so it could also refer to how DR's adoptive father was always there on her side.  Then after he died, it became her real father.  I think it's also appropriate to HJ and her faith and support of Kang.  It could also be Alzheimer Grandma's relationship with DR/MY.

They are not worthy to have people like Mr Kang and Do Ran in their family.

When I saw GR's mom going to her younger sister-in-law, my first thought was: "wow, she really lived her life badly."  Her SIL's face said it all--she was NOT happy to see this woman.  And while I can understand sisters-in-law growing out of touch when their husbands both die, it was a reflection on GR's mom that she has no one to go to.

 

But then I saw her act as a mother should.  After she exhausted all of her resources, she didn't go to Kang and demand his liver.  Rather, she got down on her knees and begged him to save her son.  And after he agreed, she tried to treat him with respect.  Can any of us really blame her?  Wouldn't any mother react as she did?  Personally, I will be reserving my judgment for how she behaves towards him now that GR is no longer in danger of dying.  If she were to revert back to her old, nasty self, then yes, she is irredeemable.  However, if she is able to treat him as just another stranger, then I can't really blame her anymore.  Yes, he saved her son's life.  But, he also took away her husband's life.  Yes, I know he's innocent, but from her point of view, she doesn't know that yet.  She could be thinking that if he hadn't killed her husband, her husband could have been a match for as a liver donor.  It's DY that is still a big problem.

Logically speaking, HJ is the least likely of the 3 women to get pregnant, but I guess at this point it'll make more sense for HJ to be the one pregnant. (Also this is Kdrama so logic is often ignored lol.) Then, if Mr. Kang doesn't die, he'll get to do what he never got to do with DR, i.e. raising his child.

I hope it's HJ. That would tie up her storyline nicely. After all she came back to Korea with the intention of get pregnant via a donor would be ever so lovely if Kang wakes up to find out he's fimally going to get the chance to raise his kid. 

 

@luvabe lol you won't believe how many times re-read that before posting because I'm the queen of typos, and every time I read it as liver. Not even the same letters so I can't even play my dyslexia card, no idea why I'm thinking of kidneys. Mmmm been a while since I've had a steak and kidney pie though...that's tomorrow dinner idea sorted :D

Oh, please, no! I didn't even think of that possibility. I was assuming that it was either MR or HJ, but I guess DY is also technically a part of that family, though since she's married to YR, one would have thought that her birthing dreams would take place in the Wang household. I'm still hoping that YR kicks DY to the kerb and finding a nice woman instead. That way, if WDR and DR do end up together, at least DR wouldn't have to deal with DY as much any more.

I really liked that the starting of the drama..But now I only watch KBS YouTube clips to be updated on the drama..Lost my interest to watch subbed or full episode.

 

But looks like it's getting higher rating.. As they passed 40% the cast have to fulfill the rating promise they made in Happy Together..Congrats. It's fun when cast get to fulfill rating promise by achieving desired rating. :star:

 

And the cast is visiting Happy Together again.. It's nice that this time the older cast joined in HT. I specially love the acting of Do Ran's Mother In Law and Grandma..Well Mother In Law is being truly mean and ignorant but I loved it when she used to go all "Omo Omo Omo." and her other exaggerate expressions. Glad that she won award at KBS drama Awards. It would've been nice if ther's a catagory for Grandma too. I'm looking forward to this Happy Together episode.

 

 

I love how KBS promote their dramas..It'll be daebak if My Only One achieve 50% viewership..So many amazing KBS Family dramas these days went close to it but it's tough to do that now that people have different options and choices for drama.

The preview looks fun, but I wish Jin Kyung (HJ) were there as well. I guess she's busy promoting her movie, since I haven't seen her in interviews together with the rest of the cast.
