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.

 

 

Thanks for filling me in about MS' MIL.  I have not watched those parts yet and didn't know the details.  I agree that she is rather self-centred.  She's definitely not the sacrificial giving type like SJ.  

I am looking forward to posts about tonight's episode.  More MR and TJ please!  They are a cute couple.  It does seem childish the way they behave with each other but it is implying their closeness to each other.

I am very busy but I still watched LIVE. I keep it short.

 

First. I don`t know why In Sook reacted so bad. I know that finding that Tae Joo and Mi ri have a relationship is ruining her plan keep her daughter a secret. But even if the truth is found, I don`t know why it is so tragedy for her.

I want to know what In Sook and Director Park`s conversation. He found out the truth and he have not talked with Chairman Han yet. If Chairman Han will know that Mi Ri is her daughter what? He already knows that she abandoned her daughter. I hope the writer won`t exagerate this. I don`t see a serious issue.

The picnic scene was cute and funny. Park Tae Ri and Jo Min Hye are dating. Good for them. :) I have to apologize to Park Tae Ri. I thought he will stop the kiss between Mi ri and Tae Joo but he helped. :lol:  Mi Ri, just kiss your man!!!!!! What are you waiting for?

 

I don`t like what I am thinking about the preview. I hope Mi Ri won`t agree to leave the country. I wish she will fight that. I know that she won`t leave but  It is not a noble idiot thing anymore, it is just idiocy. When she will care for herself first?

I was not happy when she decided to leave the country but I start to think it is a solution. Yes, she needs a break but she could go on a trip. Take a pay holliday she never has taken. It is better than leave the country. I hope she will get her mojo back and fight for herself and her relationship with Tae Joo.

She needs to go alone a few days if she will want to sort her thoughts but I am nothing against to get Tae Joo.

But speaking of a trip I really want to see Mi Ri and Tae Joo going to a trip later, just two of them, and let all the problems behind for a while.

 

Maybe Mi Ri finds out in the next episode that her resignation was aproved. Ouch! She will think she doesn`t any other solution but let see what will cause her to change her mind, to see more clearly the situation.

we all knew it will happen someday down the road but that quickly? I think spending time in the cottage made wonders.

The first thought when I saw them kissing....she is kissing him already and her older sister is still shy about it. Come on, Mi Ri! You are competitive. Show your real nature! :lol:

 

PS: I saw the preview again. I was wrong. I thought Mi Hye initiated the kiss. :)

I actually watched the whole scene with MH being sequestered in a secluded place with WJ. She seems bearable when she does not overact or do odd things with her face. Mr. Bang seems to be there for comic relief so I am going to forgive his scene in the soup place. His crying part was not very successful - more like a tantrum and no tears. 

I can't put my finger on MR's character, she is efficient and meticulous in planning and executing her work, there is a stern streak which makes her subordinates not comfortable socialising with her, she cried buckets when SJ got angry that she saw IS, but when IS called she becomes a puppet even though she's made of sterner stuff and she knows that SJ will be hurt.

I will pray to see the moment  where she free herself of In Sook`s emotional influence. It is alright if they will have a good relationship but I want to see tha day when Mi ri will feel comfortable around her biological mother. Than it will mean that she moved on.

Thinking about it, I think it is good that Mi Ri will get fired (her resignation was aproved). It will be a good think for her in the end.

 

Tae Joo loves so much to tease Mi Ri. :w00t:

Just a quick translation of this scene since it is pretty cute. Thanks for posting @sadthe1st.

 

 

 

TJ: Well, let’s get out then.
MR: No, we can’t!
TJ: Why not? It doesn’t affect me. Since I’ve learned a secret of Assistant Manager Park’s, should we be telling him our secret? That Vice President is my girlfriend. That we’re dating!
MR: Crazy! (she’s protesting his proposed actions of telling Asst Mgr Park)
TJ: Just with words? (meaning what else is she offering for him to stay silent)
TJ: Well… (indicating he wants a kiss as well in order to stay quiet)
MR: That’s enough of that.
TJ: Okay, then. (getting up) Assistant Manager Park… (MR rushes to pull him back)
(TJ pushes out his cheek again for MR’s kiss)
TJ: Hurry.
(MR goes to kiss his cheek, but he turns his head so she kisses his lips instead. It was so obvious that he would do this. :D)
TJ: Oh! (startling MR) Just teasing.

Oooohh... looks as if I missed a lot.

 

MH dating or rather with who? I was so busy yesterday didn't even have time for anyone except MR's scenes from Sat episode. Its good they are showing relationship progression so early. As long as it keeps going. 

 

I haven't decided how I feel about the way TJ is behaving. A positive spin on it is that he is really happy with MR so therefore he feels free to be light hearted and teasing. Like he trusts in her character and consistency. He just goes for it not hiding it. There is no uncertainties with him. He does not feel the need to behave like a man dating a senior manager.

 

That's the positive spin. The negative spin would run more like yikes, he is over 30. That's a marriageable age. Why is  he fooling around with someone his father would object to. Why are you not doing steak dinners and adult dates? Would a man even tease like that?

 

I did post a few weeks back that TJ hasn't been written as mature enough for MR. At this point I am pretty sure its intentional by the writer. I presume so since I actually liked her previous works.

 

Its MR who is more of a surprise. She goes all in huh? Once she decided to let him know she has feelings she doesn't seem to let or be constrained by expected behaviour. In this case I mean her doing the barking. She doesn't seem to be the type that needs to be seen to be behaving as she ought to. In contrast to IS who makes herself behave as she ought to.

 

She gave up MR because she had to to marry into the chaebol family. She behaved and cooked for her in laws like a submissive wife. She behaved like she ought to during the 10yrs in the other dept. She is now throwing MR away because she is behaving like she ought to based on the Chairman's comments.

 

Where else MR is behaving as she wants to. She helps in the SJ's restaurant. She behaves as she wants to when TJ thinks she didn't prioritise him. To placate him to apologise. In fact she has apologised a few times to him. IS never apologizes. Then she behaves as she wanted to towards her team. But then also shows her warmth when she needed to when her team is upset.

 

 

So although I wasn't that happy with the Sat episode's last scene I presume the writer has a reason. To develop the character's development as the drama progressed. To set the tone of what kind of relationship it is between those 2. So far it seems to be a couple who does not conform to expected behaviour or a couple who value their interactions. They are honest towards each other.

 

So yeah, you can see it in a positive light. Or a very negative light. I am still undecided at this point. However am darn happy it is progressing so fast.

 

Addit- I haven't been watching all the episodes with subs or reading it properly. That assistant manager Park. Is he being subbed as Mr Park or they are calling him as something else? Not subbing it as Park Daeri right? The only objection I have to him dating is for the girl's behalf. His shirts taste!!! And dating someone who has such a loose mouth and gossips and whines like that? Yikes.

I've had enough of jae bum, tbh, I didn't emphasise with him from the first episode. He was friend zoned by Mi hye but keeps wanting more because he was nice to mi hye. It's very manipulative, to feel like someone owes you something because you were very nice to them. He's becoming worse and worse as the episodes go on. Mi Hye is growing on me and becoming more likeable, it's nice to see how she develops as a writer. Tae joo does seem childish at times, but he's also starting to speak up for himself, looking at the preview for next week. Also, at first I kind of understood mi sun's mother in law and how she now wants to relax and not look after kids but then she should not have looked down at SJ and acted all high and mighty while making her daughter in law do everything (like making the meal for her friends). She says her husband never helped with the kids, but she's enabling her son to do the same. It was very satisfying when Jin soo's dad flipped him over :D

I could understand why TJ portrayed childish and playful character towards MR, it is an intentional by the script writer...if two of them continue behave coldness outside the workplace and even if TJ follow his dad's conventional thinking, the two lines will never meet. The two must be the opposite character or having differences to attract and compliment each other. Only when two lines meet, it will impact their surrounding people/characters, the story will increase intense level and conflict among the parties. In real life, it is possible for younger man to behave childish and playful in a relationship because my ex-bf did the same, he needs attention, he check on you often...he wants to be part of your life as much as possible. But they can be very fun and loving. I am sure the writer had done much research. 

I am curious to see how the plot goes further, until now, i am not sure how and what IS plan, we can only speculate in this forum.... we know that she wants her daughter to leave the company, but when MR turn her down, what is her next plan of action? I also wish to see how MR will react when she finds out that TJ is the future possible CEO....the son of the old chairman :lol:

PS : I love the story progress fast..i dislike slow paste storyline....

I could not watch the whole episode (no time at all) but I saw the important scenes.

 

I have to say, I was very curious what In Sook said to Director Park when he find out the truth. She did not say much. She was afraid that people will think that she knew that Mi Ri was her daughter for a longer time. What? This is the major problem for her? I thought it was something important. I hope she did not want to say much because it was not Director Park`s business to know and her panic is not related to this issue. IMO, this is a weak reason for In Sook to be this agitated. We`ll see.

 

I am happy that Mi Ri reacted when she find out that her biological mother is sending her to US. She said to her that she doesn`t want to go. YES! Good, girl! If in the next episode, her resignation was accepted and she was let go from the company against her wish, it is another thing. I don`t know the law, but I think In Sook got lucky because Mi Ri was first to send the resignation. Maybe it is not possible to withdrew her resignation without the CEO`s aproval.  Mi Ri`s impulsive nature makes her troubles again.

Cute

 

 

 

 

If she was let go from the company, Mi Ri DEFINETLY should stay in the country and take some time off. I was so sad for her when she said to Tae Joo that she did not had leusure time for herself. Study, study and more study at shool. work , work and more work at the company. This could be a new start for her. :D
