Annyeong!  Decided to pop in and comment.  I don't usually watch long family dramas but I like Kim So Yeon so thought i'd check it out.  

Hi, I am glad that you decided to join the discusion.

 I have this feeling that IS abandoned Miri because she is on a dangerous mission to take revenge on the Hans.  I don't know what the deal is.  There are a few things I am still pondering over .. just theories:

 

Interesting scenario with In Sook but I don`t think she wants revenge on Han family. We`ll see but from what I see so far, it did not see any sign to sustain that she has a heart full of revenge. If she will want to control Tae Joo after the Chairman is dead that I could see. I can`t seem to understand the way of her thinking. She left her daughter, causing her an emotional harm and waited 30 years to get the revenge? We have to watch more to understand all the characters. But what I am sure (because the writer make us doubt) In Sook has a story for what she did 28 years ago. (In sook has a fear of darkness, said that she abandoned Mi Ri to "protect" her). There is a reason and I want to know it.

At least, you came up with a scenario, I can`t even imagine one right now. :lol:

MS's MIL just serves to show the generation gap.  In fact, I think the FIL is a hypocrite if he is siding with MS now when he did not stand up to his mother in the treatment of his wife last time.  The husband expects all kinds of fish but seriously, why can't he cook it himself?

 

Definetly with Mi Ok and Mi sun we see the generation gap. About Mi Sun`s father in law. I like that he is not self- centered and he shows emphaty. The fish issue? He expected fish for dinner and he did not get it. It is obvious that he can`t cook. When he did not eat outside, he made himself rameon (I remember that but I am not sure). What his wife did wrong, IMO,  was that she broke her promise. I saw him doing housework and his wife getting out to play golf or see her friends/ his crush master. How many times the reverse happens in real life!  I put an equal "blame" on him because of the way he raised his son. He had a job and his wife stayed at home but he has responsabilities to be involved more in the family as well.

I find this show really quite interesting in their portrayal as mothers, the different kinds of mothers, in how they express love.  And the role of women in society.  How women treat and judge other women and how they all handled the adversity that came their way.    

I agree. You said it beautifully.

haha im hoping that IS will finally realise that all the worldly things (fame and fortune) cant be compared to her daughter’s happiness.. since she remarried into Han family for 10yrs or so without bearing a child before her husband  passed away then probably Chairman Han could have already removed (or not even added her name into the family registry). she can still choose to leave the Han family as a free woman, not a sister in law of Chairman Han. this way, MR and TJ can still get married without the estranged relationship :rolleyes:

hey IS can reconcile with SJ and help in the oxtail soup restaurant haha so that SJ bro can go full time in the rockstar band :lol:

 

lastly, MS AND HER FLYING KICK!! *throws confetti*

Considering other 100 plus shows, I think you may be right. There is a kumbaya ending, nobody is left out even if she were a child abuser for 20 years. Come to think of it, one wife of adoptive mother was left out in the cold at the end in a show. That was the worst case scenario.

I hope they won't try to softsoap us by making what a pathetic childhood IS had, how her husband cheated on her or worse as a few have suggested some revenge is in the offing. I have had enough of that. We will then feel so sorry for her and let her waltz in taking over the soup shop after failing to take over HanSung. :D SJ then will go traipsing round the world.

@sheza  you have a very interesting and reverse thinking opinion,....I like that. :D

I totally agreed that this drama is clearly reflecting the current women status in this society and not being treated well respect or equal in corporate ladder environment. No matter how IS struggle to go up, there is always the old man chairman behind to oversee her performance. This drama is women-centric story... :rolleyes:

 

I am curious to see if Mi Ri will take revenge after knowing her bio mum had accepted her resignation. Miri has a strong character, but she is also weak inside, so I would like to see any plans or a twist in between if any, on the upcoming EP.  :w00t:

 

Since you have a different opinion, i would like to hear from you and the rest of the chinggu from below....

I was quite surprised (same as TJ expression)  when mi ri expressed her feeling by using her hand to touch TJ across at the other side of table, this behavior quite an odd one because usually if a lady who attempts to do a first move will do so, only if she sit next to him at the bar counter or sit on the same row. I could understand her role is a "bold one" in this drama but using this something unconventional approach surprised me too. Can any lady friends in this forum share with us, have you ever used this approach to express your 1st feeling to your love one across the table ? Sorry, i am a curious but lovely cat......:blush:

I am not sure if Mi Ri will find out that In Sook instructed Director Park to accept her resignation but she could find out if Chairman Han will want her to know.  Of course the chairman finds out about this information and he will instruct his man to dig about the relationship between In Sook and Mi Ri. He will want to know In Sook`s reason to want to lose a good manager. It`s suspisious.  I am curious what he will do once he will find out. He will want to keep Mi ri close to use her against In Sook when he needs, he will make them compete? What he will do when he finds out that his son is in love with Kang Mi Ri? He gave Tae Joo an warning to not get involved with a woman in the company but he can`t stop his feelings. Han Jong-Soo will try to separate them?

I am curious to find out about all this but I can wait. I want Mi Ri and Tae Joo to be happy a little longer.

 

I was thinking about Mi ri`s adoption. I don`t know about adoption laws, but I think the first legal step for an adoption is the termination of the parental rights of a child's birthparents. How Sun Ja was able to do that without In Sook to be aware of the procedure? In Sook disappeared for a while and she could not be contacted? I know it is a drama and these are details but I was questioning the posibility.

I just watch LIVE.

I won`t say much because I want to watch with subtltes. I liked the scene with the Marketing team working outside office. Mi Ri and Mi Sun spent more time with Sun ja, who had an accident in the kitcken  and hurt her back.

I love that we have these little moments of mother daughters relationship. I want to know what In Sook said to Mi Ri (who was not happy at all) and with Chairman Han.

Woo Jin can cook. Great. I like how he prepared a meal for Mi Hye and himself. They went to Woo Jin`s father cottage outside Seoul. Jae Bum is a drama king.:lol: I like how he belongs in the family already. Mi ri "scolded" him and Mi sun "comforted" him. He is like their little brother. 

The episode ended with Mi Ri and Tae Joo cute moment in front of his apartament. The problem is that In Sook saw them. Let see how things will go from here. I can`t wait for tomorrow.

I suposed that Tae Joo was a little upset that she did not properly communicate with him all day and Mi Ri tried to reconcile him.

Resulted a cute funny scene. He pretend he was upset but what she does ?  :w00t: How Tae Joo can keep his face  straight when she is doing this? :w00t:

Thank you @larus for your welcome and reply.  I look forward to your updates of the drama.  
Regarding MS' FIL.  That's my point.  We like him now because we see him emphatise with MS.  But I get this feeling that his wife has been through more hardship than the show has let on.  When she recited the poem she wrote, it seems ironic and laughable but I think she wrote it from experience.  JS is the way he is because the mom did too much for him.  It is the same way MS is the way she is because SJ is always her life line.  

 

@lebeaucouple I don't think Miri is the kind who would take revenge.  If you remember the scene where she was advising Mi Hye, Miri is the sort who would run away.  That is why when her problems with IS arose, she wanted to study abroad.  It is her protective mechanism.

In Sook is by far the most mysterious one.  If revenge is not on her mind, what would possess a woman to leave behind her daughter?  She wanted to give her daughter a better life but what extenuating circumstance would justify her actions?  And with that thought, I want to wish every mother here, Happy Mother's Day!

 If she had a good motive or it was because she wanted a better life for herself, she did abandon her daughter. It seams that she has feelings for her daughter but in the same time she has a goal, she wants to succed or to preserve her current status. I don`t know. But In Sook is an interesting character. I like that.

They could have used a different way to show a domestic accident. But it was a box with Kimchi that she wanted to carry so it fit the scene. I don`t like that Sun ja got hurt but from the narrative flow I think the writer did a good job. This way, the mother and her daughters can be seen in more scenes together.

i think i understand what u mean.. i dont like it too, especially when she’s already apologising to him.. but maybe TJ acted that way becoz he wanted her to give more attention to him?

It is like puppy love sometime but I like it for the moment. I hope there is some serious romance later as well.

Regarding MS' FIL.  That's my point.  We like him now because we see him emphatise with MS.  But I get this feeling that his wife has been through more hardship than the show has let on.  When she recited the poem she wrote, it seems ironic and laughable but I think she wrote it from experience.  JS is the way he is because the mom did too much for him.  It is the same way MS is the way she is because SJ is always her life line.

 

I think the MIL probably has some valid points. During the FIL's working life, she would have been the one to maintain their home and raise their son. He probably was not very involved with family life at all. So, I can see how the MIL feels entitled to have a fun, relaxed life. However, her innate character seems to be about herself and how things might look to her friends, and she seems to have no appreciation for how others are faring. She does not strike me as someone who ever had a graceful, giving personality.

 

So, when MS' mother was taking care of DB, the MIL only scolded about DB not knowing her manners, not being brought over to pay her respects, etc. She actively tried to avoid taking care of her until her pride and circumstances forced herself to do so. The MIL didn't care about what SJ had to go through in order to take care of DB for all those years. It's only when she herself starts to take care of DB that she wants babysitting fees from MS.

 

And, listening to MS' upset tirade to her husband, part of MS and her husband's financial difficulties was in moving into a more expensive apartment in order to be close to their in-laws at the in-law's insistence, with the MIL's assurance that MS would be glad of it once they had a child, the implication being that they would help raise the child. However, once DB was born, the MIL never offered to help in any way, and MS had to go to her mother for help. Also, paying off the loan that they had to take out for their down payment to that apartment causes them to try to live in fiscal austerity, despite both of them working and making money.

 

Anyway, I can acknowledge the MIL's efforts in raising her own child and supporting her husband during his working years without actually liking her or her personality at all.

I know what you mean. I'm a little put off by how childish TJ is as well. However, the implication is that this is MR's first relationship ever as well, so perhaps she needs to be with someone more childish so that she herself can be free to be more childish? The apology scene where she starts barking because TJ had asked her whether he was just a dog to her did make me laugh.

 

There is a childishness to their relationship that is still endearing, though I do hope it goes beyond that to be something more and assured between them. There are a lot of episodes left to show that relationship progression.

I was thinking about this actually, and it actually depends on who MR's father is. If MR is actually SJ's late husband's daughter by his "second wife" IS, then MR would have been on SJ's husband's registry anyway, so legally SJ would be her mother, and SJ could have just legally changed her name. If MR is the daughter of SJ's late husband's brother, then again, the registry would have been with the husband's family rather than IS directly, so SJ might have been able to effect an adoption with familial consent only. IS as the birth mother could have fought it, if she had known about it, but it doesn't seem as if she had known.

 

I've missed a few episodes. Have they actually discussed yet who MR's father was?

I like it too. TJ can be serious and more mature in a few scenes. He is confident in his feelings for MR to be able to say it out without expecting her to return it. The pouty childish scenes seem to be made for the out of office time, in their apartment building and the way they were casually dressed. So both of them could be goofy and not seem out of place.

 

Doesn't MR find it curious how a junior staff could live in the same apartment as a general manager and maybe dig into his background a bit?

unrelated to the plot but i hope they can tone down MR’s makeup a bit.. it seems heavy and makes her look more mature.. when MS came to her house in previous ep,  she looked so youthful and pretty coz she was not wearing as much makeup.. she’s already beautiful without makeup so i hope they can use softer colours on her sometimes..

 Exactly. I also think that Tae Joo is the right man for her right now because he is "guiding" her gently about a relationship. He wanted to be included in her life, in her decisions. Mi Ri doesn`t share much about herself. She is not his boss outside work (just to make directives) so she has to learn how a relationship works. Relashionships requires time and effort. She can be more relaxed in front of him. I can`t imagine her barking like a cute puppy in front of someone serious. :lol: I am excited to watch how their relationship gets stronger and grows.

 Thank you for the explanation. That makes sense. I forget about the family register. To answer your question, they did not talked about this but Mi Sun called In Sook aunt. From the translations we`ll find out that Sun Ja and In sook are sisters in law. We still assume that In Sook was married with the younger brother of Sun ja`s husband.

She already turn down the make up, not only in outside work scenes. She is using more warm colors on the lipstick.

 

Unrelated with the plot.... I notice in the teasers of drama WWW, that the actresses who plays carreer women in the drama has strong color on their make up as well. I think that they make up to fit the character.
