I wonder who is the lady with the big hair in the red jacket? Is that the Chinese investor you referred to above? 

 

Yes. Wang Wei is her name and there was a scene in the first episode where she and Mi ri made a business together. Park Tae Ri made a mistake and almost ruined the deal.

They were talking in Chinese. Also the Chairman said that it was very hard to deal with her and praised Mi ri that she did a good job.

Joo Hyun Mi who made a cameo as Wang Wei is a famous trot singer. She sang the first OST of Mother of Mine.

It is nice to see her again.

@smhelen ep 40 onwards. 

 

Done. Finished the episode. Good night  all. Saw the  preview. Angsty as but  TJ is solidly supportive.  So not  that  stressed. Those  2 were shooting  love hearts in the house in ep 18. And MR invited  TJ to her mother's  house for a meal. 

 

And btw, TJ made some promises. So safe to say the MR and TJ couple  are a solid couple. Now we will see what  the obstacles will be. Gotta say IS is way worse than the Chairman. Listen to what she said to Park.

 

Late and I have  a 5am wake up for work, night.  Enjoy the subbed episode.  You  guys should watch the morning  after scene raw you know.  How are you all going to see the love heart dripping with honey scene when you have to READ?

I like that they show a scene where Sun ja and In Sook met. This time they met in a fancy restaurant. Sun ja tried to wear better clothes, put make up and high heels. She was not in her element. She is an ordinary woman, she doesn`t have In Sook`s ellegance but she has a warm heart instead. No wonder Mi Ri loves her so much. I liked the scene where Sun ja and Mi ri had lunch and Mi Ri used a tissue to clean her mother`s mouth (like her mother was a baby).

 

BTW, I noticed that the pizza was burnt. Or it was a new recipe I did not know? :D

I sensed her nonsense from Park`s perplexed face. And she claims that she has a heart, that she loves Mi Ri and Tae Joo. A stranger can show more understanding/ compassion than her towards Mi Ri.

 

I want to see a scene where Sun ja meets Tae Joo`s father. Both are temperamental. I want her to speak her mind in front of him, to be herself.

Putting aside IS, I am sure it's not common that a new graduate hire be able to afford an officetel in a new building. Close to work. And no parents in sight. And it is a Tiffany box right? I haven't watched ep 17 completely so don't know if he shopped there.

 

She must have an inkling he is not that poor. Since his CV will have had an overseas degree right? Then his house furnishing ain't shabby.

 

In fact his apartment is nicer than the last 2 judges dramas I've watched. Plus the newbies in Misaeng. Plus the prosecutors in Forest of secrets. And the male lead in Prison Playhouse. 

 

Gotta squeal though- and the reason why I had to repeat- the morning scene twice. I was too busy dying and wasn't listening. Had to repeat to hear what was said. Too busy swooning both times. No no no what I meant to say is that the ring went on the left ring finger. Not the usual right ring finger where I see couple rings go. In Kdramas. Because for those dramas the writers tend to make the leads break up. It's like or implied that the right hand is for couples but its like dating couples. But when you want to make it look serious, go with the left hand. Where the wedding ring goes. But it's not engagement yet. But left hand trumps right hand. Then its a sign of full on opposition to the relationship.

Sorry, don't get what you mean, are you saying it's writer intention to put the ring on MR left hand to imply there will be a break up? :unsure:

Nice development with TJ and MR.

But . . .

You shouldn't get serious with someone until you let them know who you are.

 

Now you might think it's the same to TJ and MR.

 

I don't.

 

MR's bio-mom ended that relationship. They don't have a relationship. As far as MR is concerned IS is still trying to end that relationship.The only reason for MR to tell TJ the truth is if she thing IS will retaliate and ruin his career.

 

TJ's relationship with his family is on going.  He knows how they are which is one reason he is living away from them.  He should tell her before trying to get her to commit.

They are still in the beginning of their relationship. Their relationship will grow. They did not become yet a very strong couple. Of course, he should have told her who he is and she should have told him who In Sook is.

Because there are secrets between them, their relationship will face a crissis. The break up it will be inevitable but after that if they will decide that they want to be together, they can become a strong couple. 

 

I am sorry for Mi Ri to fall in love with Chairman`s Han`s son. I wish he was not his son. But there has to be a little drama in kdrama.  :phew: I don`t like his family at all. Tae Joo has to stay firm against his father. He proved that he is determined, he can live on his own. He will chose Mi Ri if he has to but I feel sorry for Mi Ri when she will face difficulties at work. I could see the Chairman being unfair towards Mi ri. She worked for ten years with dedication, she spent  one of her best years trying to make herself a name in the company, she was loyal and profesionist. She doesn`t deserve to lose everything just because Chairman Han doesn`t like that she is dating his son. This snob and misoginistic a** should be happy that Tae Joo loves a woman like her.

I agree, he should tell her, it's a secret he can not keep any longer.

But he has no idea how big it is. I think he thinks the only problem is his family against their relationship and he is trying not to worry Mi Ri. But he must tell her, before she figures it out in another way.

Choi Myoung-Gil is doing a great job playing In Sook. I like her suits.

 

I still don`t get In Sook. Why did she do that to Mi Ri? I still wait to see if there is a bigger picture here. I can`t understand her selfishness. If everyone will know that Mi Ri is her biological daughter is still not a big deal. Why she makes it that big? She portrays herself as perfect and now she can`t deal with consequences of her action?

She showed a little guilty conscience when she saw the flowers brought by TJ and when she stopped Chairman Han when he tried to embarrass Mi Ri in front of the executives. Too litle I say.

It's going to be a big deal for TJ. She raised TJ, maybe because She wanted manipulate him in the future. She could be the true leader behind this guy. I think She is a selfish and ambitious woman.

I still don`t get it. If he wants to be the woman behind Tae Joo it wouldn`t be more easier to accept the relationship, to keep close both Tae Joo and Mi Ri and not antagonised them?

In Sook looks like a desperate woman. She wants Mi Ri out of the company(out of her life) at any cost. Chairman Han knows that she abandoned her daughter. Let say that he will find out that Mi Ri is her daughter. So what? I don`t get the logic. If she is afraid that Tae Joo will reject her if he knew that she abandoned Mi Ri.... it could be but still I don`t think he will do that. I still feel she makes it out of proportion.

Yeah, I really think this is her fear, for me it's the reason that makes sense, but It can be other thing for sure. Something we don't know yet.

@lebeaucouple I am off to work and don't probably have time to clarify any queries. 

 

Can anyone remember dramas where the couple rings go on the left ring finger vs the right ring finger? The left ring finger is usually for the engagement ring and signifies  if the writer wants to imply SERIOUS relationship here. I recall more right ring finger moments than left.

 

This is a weekend drama. And Kdramas like to foreshadow things. That is why  if the writer is sloppy things go out of whack.

 

There are certain themes in a weekend drama. Family relationship must always end well by ep 50 being the main lesson.

 

Birth secrets. Noble idiocy break up. Abandonment. Cancer or death. Family pressure/ difficulty/ finance issues ie debt etc.  With a touch of blackmail. Not too much physical violence hopefully. Family meals with Korean food- week day dramas are when you get Subway/ pizza and  steak/ pasta. 2 to 4 couples with at least one wedding. That's the weekend drama.

 

Look at the above. We are at ep 18. 32 episodes to go. There are at least 2 lots of break up happening. Based on the hints then the viewer will or can guess which one is going to be bigger.

 

Currently the writer is going for In Sook and secret more than the Chairman separating. I mean all 3 are there. But the IS and secret is being ramped up in the storyline. Listen to what IS is saying re the marketing team and MR. Then MR and her position going with TR and the graduate hire. The Chairman hasn't done what the usual family opposition moves yet. He's mild compared to what I have seen. He hasn't met her directly yet regarding the relationship.

 

I don't know but it seems to be setting up for a massive confrontation. But 18 episodes is still early for a serious relationship. It usually can take to almost ep 30 to get a confession. And sometimes even longer for a couple to get together.

 

To give a couple ring and first night scene in week 9 of a 50 ep drama is early. So the ring goes on the left. Hint hint. Serious here. It can turn into an engagement in a flash.

 

He has said love a few times. Hit that with a confrontation by let's say ep 24- 26 and we are then set for a separation. At the usual drama time it is supposed to happen.

 

But then that's just me. Might have been Kdrama trained. I started Kdramas and immediately or almost immediately was trained to notice details since I used to do a bit more than watch. Inevitably which episode had good moments and when episodes dragged. And I want to die and chuck the drama but couldn't because I was committed to subbing or a team. I hate weekend dramas subbing. When dramas drag you lose subbers  and your brain is wired to know " ergh, its coming its coming. How many episodes is it going to be. Please, please don't make it more than 10 episodes of suffering."

 

Weekday drama separations are usually 4 episodes. 24 episode dramas can drag on for 8. That's how it rolls.  A long bad drama separation are those over 20 episodes long.

 

So right ring finger. And left ring finger moments? Tends to stick in my head.

 

And now really need go to work. May not comment till next week. Since I watched most of ep 18 IS moments and heard her. Ergh. What a selfish woman.

 

I like weekend dramas because they use every day conversations and its the easiest to learn Korean. And I probably learnt to cook because of the dishes on the dinner table. Don't knock those family meals. My banchan repertoire has greatly increased watching the dishes. Hahaha. All the Koreans I know are impressed I can cook so much. And practising your standard Seoul accent? Use the weekend dramas. A lot a lot of everyday vocabulary.

 

But I digress from the right ring finger comment. But that's my take on the left hand. And a branded ring vs a spur of the moment ring on finger moment.

So today this is the episode where mothers get called out for bad behavior.

 

I don't think that IS is only doing whatever she is plotting just to get power and money. I may be wrong, but that's what I think.

 

Whatever IS is trying to do--no matter how noble or just she think she is, her methods are bad, really problematic.

 

I also have questions about the writing and the editing.  Sometimes it seems like too different writer with different intentions. 

 

The editing seems to have these graceless jumps that makes disrupts the flow of the show.

 

After the meeting with Chairman Grandpa, the way IS treated Director Park, one of only two people in the corporation on her side, made no sense.  Then in the same episode in IS's second meeting with Director Park she acted as if they relationship was as strong as ever and tried to bribed him with a good marriage for his daughter.  Well, Park may seem to go along with her plans, but she has revealed a ruthless about her that he did not know existed.  He always spoke of her kindness to him, so the way she is treating her daughter is a shock to him and may lead him to re-evaluate who he thinks she in..

 

What I find so disgusting about IS's actions in these last two episodes is that she's been putting pressure on MiRi by lying and using information unscrupulously to have people MiRi care about to pressure MiRi. She tried to get the chairman to fire her and her mother pressure her to leave the country.

 

--ANOTHER TOPIC--

I try to pay attention where the camera lingers.  
Sometimes it's just product placement [Yeah, Tiffany has . nice boxes], other times it is a plot point.

 

The camera lingered on the picture of IS and TJ in TJ's bedroom.  
I suspect the next time MiRi is in TJ's bedroom she will see it and ask questions.

It is a very big deal for people to know about her biological daughter.

Korea is a very conservative society.  Look at how IS is using Director Park's unmarried daughter's pregnancy to blackmail him.

 

-As best I can figured it, IS was a newsreader.  Still not in the proper social level to marry into the chairman's family.

 

-The public image she has created one of kind down to earth rich madame.  This is why Director Park admire her. This was why she took off her show and the company's event to get herself on the same lever as ordinary employees.

 

--That image would be blown to bit if it was reveal that she abandoned her daughter to be raised to the owner of a lowly ox-bone restaurant.

 

--She would lose everything thing she had worked for since she married into the famiy.

 

- Chairman would kick her out of family.  She would lose all power. TJ might turn against her because he would doubt her sincerity. The board and the employees would turn against. The entire society would turn against her.

--The chairman would do all he can to kill any serious relationship that TJ has that isn't on the same socio-economic level.  FRom my understanding --gleaned from dramas-- marriages on that socio-economic level are more like business mergers than romantic coupling.  Think about it as functioning the same marriages between foreign royalty when Europe was ruled by king and queens. 

--How is IS suppose to support a relationship/marriage between her "son" and daughter.  What would her society think of it.  It isn't genetic incest but it is  weird--under usual circumstances.  It's like someone allowing their child to marry their stepbrother.  In dramas, it even an issue if someone falls in love with her sibling's spouse's sibling.

I've watched both episodes and wow. My opinion of In sook is even worse now. Tbh, although I don't know her true motives yet I'm disgusted seeing how she treats people. And don't even get me started on the chairman (In sook learnt this behaviour from him)  when he was staring at mi ri's ring.

 

TJ is so amazing. He acts cute and childlike but at the same time doesn't back down and defends mi ri. :love:        

 

Few other things about these episodes, I know I was complaining last week about Jae bum but he was even worse this week. He's a stalker and I hate how everyone is enabling his behaviour. I started clapping when the part timer told the family that JB is an obsessive stalker and they should call the police. Mi sun's husband and MIL are as always trash. The FIL likes to act like he's great as well but all he does is complain. Fix your own meals, for God's sake. :angry:.

 

I hope SJ finds things she loves doing so that she stops feeling empty when her daughter's aren't there.  Last thing I wanted to say was, I want to find my own TJ, asap. :lol::lol:

After watching the two ep with the sub, i like how MR fight for herself during the conversation alone with her bio mum, one inside the lift, the other one is the ending part of Ep 18,....

she said : I am not leaving, I will stay right here (Thumbs up)...she was firm at that moment. I hate the way when her bio mum IS said "......you were raised by poor family", couldn't she remb she was the only reason why her daughter was raised up by poor family because she abandoned her....:angry:

 

I was sad to see MR often cry whenever she met her both mum....i knew these are their emotional scenes which are unavoidable, but i want MR continue to be strong in her role in this drama......she was lucky to meet TJ in the company in this drama, if this happens in real life with TJ role absence, she will be alone to fight against with the top management, or she will quit the job and find some other competitive MNC. With her competency, she is no doubt able to get one fast.....

Back to drama, TJ will emotional support her all the way which can be seen in the next week EP.

 

PS : EP18, I noticed that TJ and MR did not hold hands on that part while they were scrolling in the evening, having conversation about the chairman sudden came to office ...shouldn't their relationship even closer or even intimate after having sleeping together :w00t::lol:? They should have a forehead goodbye kiss before he got on a taxi....something like that.... I still find that a bit distance for both, hahaha.....Am i the only one spotted that....

 

MR, fighting...to all the mum and sisters, fighting....:wub:
