The ratings seems to dropped a bit yesterday..... :mellow:

There were two new dramas premiering on Monday, so it's not surprising for ratings of current dramas to drop.

 

Monday night's episode was awesome. I love that they decided not to give up and fight on. I love seeing Hoo Ja get the upper hand, but I also love seeing her get beaten down, hahaha....

Yes, that leap off the podium was a great touch! I became fired up too, haha... The best of all, seeing JK and MY together on same vision.

 

Still waiting for the reveal of who is Sister#3.... I wonder when will Sister#1 come into play? Or was it just a cameo?

oh my goodness!!!! the last episode was unbelievable! Jung Gook won by a few votes - I was seriously feeling nervous as the results were being announced and Park Ha Joo's father died and she officially became the Chairwoman of Baekyung Capital. What an episode. HSJ decides at the last minute not to expose JG , and MY's mum and JG's dad met - the two older folk had a real teary heart to heart . For the sake of the happiness of the children decides to bury the past. 

 

But the wedding photo frame fell at the end of the drama. I suppose that is a sign that the drama will finally address the elephant in the room. MY has to find out soon who JG  was before this.  Will she be able to forgive him?? Can't wait for next week where we see JG assuming his role as the assemblyman for Seowon.

Yes, I was finally abled to watch this weeks eps & so many twists & turns... :o Soo our JG has finally become the assemblyman & wow, MY has become the assemblyman's wife! :) But this is non less than a joke that a con artist has become an  assemblyman & a detective cop has become he assemblyman's wife.... The real drama begins now!! And their wedding photo fell on the ground at the end & I guess it's a bad omen for our assembly couple! :( Now how he's gonna confess his true self to her..??! I am pretty curious over the next eps!! 

 

Ans we still don't know about the 3rd sis of Park family! And by chance if MY turns out to be the 3rd sis, then the series will hit for a disaster :cold_sweat: Oh God!!!! Looking forward to see the end results....

 

The preview for the next eps....

Just watched yesterday's eps & what an entertainment filled eps those were!

 

I love the character progression of YJG!! He was a bad jerk at the beginning but now he really has a sense of humor! But I wonder how he's gonna confess his true self to his wife.... She's so in love with him! :) May be YJG must bury his dark past with his good deeds or whatsoever...

 

And this is my 2nd time that I love a female villain in a k-drama this much! I love Park Hoo Ja so much! Her straight forward eyes, straight forward talk & even her straight forward body is all my favorites!! :) This actress is Daebak at playing her role! But I think Park Hoo Ja's downfall has just begun in yesterday's eps.... I hate to see her in pain! :mellow: can't wait for today's eps....

And why this thread is quite now..???! I don't like quite threads at all. I feel sad as we are nearly the end of series... Next week will be the finale week if KBS goes according to the book! And I will miss my dear friends, @triplem @ktcjdrama @stroppyse & others here so much!!! :huh: :bawling: Let's get together soon here lovelies....

I think that episodes 27-28 air tonight.  And I think this is slated to have 36 episodes.  So we should have a few more.

It's sad to see that this drama does not have many viewers.  I'll agree that it's not FANTASTIC, and I don't wait all week for the next episode.  However, I like how innocent this drama is.  And, I think some of the actors/actresses are doing a FANTASTIC job. PHJ's character is so fun to watch, I love the actress who plays the oldest sister (the one in prison)--too bad it seems like it was just a cameo.  And YJG's sister is another great job.

You should watch! The last 4 episodes (24-28) are so funny and good.

I'm still watching, but I've been a bit too busy to really put my thoughts down about this drama. I actually really like the progression of the plot in this drama for the most part as well as the character development.

 

JK is definitely evolving from the con-man who had some scruples about some of the people that he was scamming but mostly thought they were greedy sheep who could be easily scammed to becoming someone who is thinking about how hard life can be for people and the government's proper role in their lives. It's this drama's leitmotif that the lifelong politicians regardless of their backgrounds are more crooked than the ones who are openly crooks. It's still not realistic that JK could have lied about his credentials so well and been elected to office, but compared to all the politicians whose primary motivation was self-interest, it is refreshing to have JK as an Assemblyman, especially one who doesn't mind breaking the rules when he thinks the system is being unfair.

 

I was also happy to see that Han Sang Jin ultimately couldn't bring himself to destroy MY just for the sake of getting himself elected. HSK did flirt with the evil side, but when it really came down to choosing family (even if not blood related) to his personal ambition, he couldn't bring himself to pay that price. As he himself tells his mother, it's one thing to sell himself, but he couldn't bring himself to sell MY. So, even if he's not as pure and idealistic as even he thought he was, he has found his boundaries within himself.

 

JK's sister totally made me laugh with how she's actually the genius scammer of the family. She learned to speak 24 languages so that she could run complicated, international scams. She's a genius hacker who has never been caught, facile at phone scams, phone taps, etc. It's not really so much that she's evolving as much as it is that we're constantly being shown other sides to her than the simple single mother that we had first been introduced to.

 

Anyway, now that the HJ's Big Sis is out of prison, I wonder how that will change the dynamics of the business empire that HJ has been trying to construct. Big Sis seems like a formidable foe, though she may possibly be nastier than HJ herself. I had to laugh as HJ comments in frustration on how she had put 1 person in the Assembly only to lose all the others whom she had already purchased. LOL

I think that this drama only has 32 episodes. So, next week will be the finale.

 

My only real annoyance with this drama has been that MY still doesn't know her husband's true character. I'm afraid that it's going to get a rushed treatment: something along the lines of JK being a good person now despite his shady past so that MY forgives him? However, that then becomes yet another instance where MY isn't given the same level of care as JK. MY has been an under-utilized character in this drama. Even though I appreciate her action scenes, her lack of knowledge of the core actions of the drama continues to sideline her.

 

Though, I do appreciate the scenes of MY with her team of detectives. I laughed a number of times at how MY and her team were able to manipulate Detective Lee who feels horrible about allowing himself to be bribed into doing something that they want him to do, namely help set HJ and her associates up. Their little digs at him show that they have accepted him back and still like him, but aren't willing to let him forget.

 

And, in a way, I feel that Detective Lee is yet another example of what is occurring to me to be redemption arcs in this drama. He accepted bribes from HJ and acted as her mole, but he's truly repented, so he's being accepted back to his team. HSJ lost his way, but ultimately, he went back to what was right and proper, and no harm to his family. JK himself is going through the biggest redemption arc of all, but others are attaining their arcs as well. His team, of course. JK's father in his realization of the relationship between MY and the police commandant and the potential that has to ruin his son's happiness seems to have repented from his grifting ways thoroughly. Kim Joo Myung, a politician who had been forced to retire, but was still resigned with the ways that politics worked has found redemption for himself in JK's redemption as well.

 

Looking forward to what the final episodes will show us, and how they expect to end this rather unexpected drama. :)

Just watched yesterday's eps & I love that Park Hoo Ja is defeating.... Jung Gook is so brave & independent! I love his attitude in Mr. Kim's meeting.... I am not interested in the other guy. He seems a full jerk by his looks!! :angry: A henchman of Park Joo Ha!!! I guess Jung Gook will be the key to Park Hoo Ja's defeat! And by the way, is she having a chronical ilness so something that that she had some breathing problems when every thing went so wrong for her...??! :o 

 

20190514001726393_1557822801_1.jpg?15578

 

And Mi Young still doesn't know about her husband's true self! So I don't get it... Is the writer's gonna left up Jung Gook's bad past & focus on his decent present..??! :mellow: And we have the newly-released sis no.1 from the prison & she's also looking for Jung Gook!!!! Woow, this guy has so many sisters to look after him :w00t: And we still don't know about sis no. 3 yet!!! Hope she'd appear soon on the game...

 

But anyway, looking forward to see the next final eps. I have no habit of giving up anything so easily unless it's not in to my taste.... :huh: So I am waiting for the final results!!! 

 

And dear @jechoi1 & @stroppyse chingus, i guess both of you are right! Wiki says it's 36 eps & asian wiki says it's 32 eps.... Who knows..???! Let it be the way it is... -_- Let's enjoy the show, fellows!!! :D

I also loved what they did with JK's sister.  It's like, the drama told us that this is a family of schemers, but the sister didn't look like much.  I loved how they showed her mad skills.

 

I'm also really annoyed with what the drama is doing with MY's character.  She doesn't know.  Everyone else around her knows, except for her.  It's like a betrayal by everyone.  JK won't tell her, her mother won't tell her, her brother won't tell her.  Now, the detective working under her won't tell her.  How will she feel when she finds out that everyone knew and didn't tell her.  Except for HJ.  It's even more of a betrayal bc she believes so much in JK.  She thinks that he's this innocent person who she needs to protect against the big, bad world out there.

I agree. Everyone in her life is withholding information from her because they worry that it'll impact her happiness. And, they're right that it might, however, she's a fully capable adult and she doesn't deserve to be treated like a fragile child.

 

What's worse is my fear that this close to the end of the drama, they may play the reveal for laughs. I think MY has so much potential as a character, but we aren't really going to see that of her. So, for me, this drama has really become the battle between JK and HJ as they both maneuver to get what they want.

Definitely not going to give up watching it. Even though it's couched in comic terms, I think this drama has a lot to say about the state of current Korean politics, and its humor is frequently biting as it veers into the ridiculous and then back. Despite the flaws that I and others have pointed out, this may be the drama that I'm most enjoying right now.

Looks like he’s going to work with the big sis to bring down PHJ?

 

Wow dear... What am I see here..????! :w00t: This is fantastic!

Yes, when big sis popped out of the prison, she was so like "Where is the guy, Jung Gook??"... And they are teaming up to turn their back on our pretty loan shark :ph34r: Then Hoo Ja has to find a big defense to survive from her big sis!

 

And omo, she looks so pleased to meet him! :o This is gonna be the coolest of the coolest show ever! Can't wait to see tonight's eps!

Monday’s episode was really good  . I was getting quite worried that Park Hoo Ja would have the upper hand & get MY suspended again. But amazing plot twist that JG would use his skills to frame Hoo Ja & save MY! I didn’t see that one coming . But of course that lil smile that Hoo Ja gave at the end of the episode makes me wonder if it really is the end of her :lol:

 

I know people are wondering how many episodes there will be - it’s supposed to be 36 ( 18 hours ) , which means it ends next week . So I’m still surprised, that up to Monday they hv not shown any possibility of MY finding out about JG’s past . I’m wondering if she will even ever find out . I still think she should know though . 

 

I like how they are making JG a legit politician - he’s really doing what he was elected for & he’s doing his homework. I like that he’s determined to be useful , in his own words , and to make good of himself .  He sure is better than half the assemblymen  that are being elected - who are just wasting time politicking & wasting tax payers money . I believe this drama is poking fun & highlighting what is really wrong with the system .  

Best scene from Monday 

 

Ratings for Tuesday hv gone up . Hope to catch the episode once it comes on Viu
