Yeah there will conflicts specially from giseok as jung in said he has some sense of pride and as you mentioned in the last line he would be surprised a lot and it may hurt his pride too,regarding her father i hope the sisters gang along with their mother will stand against him lol he couldn't even stand against jung in mother:D

Its a bit easier if GS is the type of boyfriend who is man eenough to accept  JI falling out of love in their relationship.and eventually breaks up. I think a relationship lasts not because of how many years a couple have been together but rather it will be based on the love, trust, faith  the couple had for each other.

as for JI's dad I hope he will realize that his daugthers are all grown up and have minds of their own.and can choose whoever that make them happy and love them truly.

@annamchoi I agree with @Pmyonly that the moment GS discovers that JI is attracted to a single father who is just working as a pharmacist, it will hurt his ego. He thinks very highly of himself due to his family and his work. In my opinion, it seems that GS has always seen JI as his ideal partner and future wife because she was never demanding. She never complained, when he put his job first. Since she seemed so detached and less affectionate, it didn't bother him because it gave him a lot of freedom as well. However, JI got upset because of the way he proposed to her. He didn't actually propose to her at all. He just told her that they should get married. She got upset because she realized that GS saw this marriage as a way to live more comfortably. His words made her realize how superficial their relationship was.

Finally had time to watch EP.2.  I feel that both the characters seo Joon hee and yoo ji ho of JHI are almost the same.  They don't hesitate to express their feelings and are very honest.  Except in this ji ho is a single dad.  

And reg. GS, there is going to be ego problem if he comes to know that JI has fallen for an ordinary single dad less in status than him.  We can see from the way he behave so dignified that he is great and mighty above all coz of his work and family.  That's why he wants a non demanding simple wife like JI as she did not expected anything from him when they were dating but he didn't know that she is more forward thinking about her love and married life.  So, obviously there are going to be lot of problems arising in the future.

Reg JI father, this what happens in most south asian middle class families.  The dad's sometimes dominate the daughter's marriage and they are the one's who have the final say and like SI, the daughter's have to accept their fate which leads to divorce sometimes death too.  I hope JI make him realise what he does is wrong.  

I really like JI mother here how she just counter questioned him and made him fall down.  These type of male dominate what the wife's should do and they cannot have any personal interest for themselves.  He started criticising her to stop doing whatever.  I think she was practicing the calligraphy.  I hate these type of males.

Reg JI, yes l appreciate her straight forwardness and just don't hide what she thinks.  She has already given GS an hint that she is on the verge of breaking up with him.  He also understood it.  But in spite of that he is over confident and asks her that "aren't we going to get married finally"?  

But, she seems to be swaying back and forth with regard to Ji Ho saying "let's be friends" thing.  Hope she is clear in her mind when she starts to date ji ho and confirm her feelings for him.

There is nothin wrong in ji ho and Jung in falling in love legally if only the family and friends accept their love, but no.  We have to wait and see what the writer and the pd wanna convey from this drama?  Looking forward to the future episodes.

Got some pics for the upcoming episodes.

After giving it a thought, the question about cheating or not cheating never really occured to me, since it didn't get phyical. Yes there is also emtional cheating, but the sentence that JI and GS both never were emotional was one of the first sentences of the drama, so I guess it goes in both directions, this time thought towards the negative. It seems like their relationship was set up from the start, there never really was love involved anyway.

She has to come clear towards GS, but for me she actually was quite fast in breaking up with him and realize her feelings. Maybe that's only in drama-dreamland, but based on experience girls take waaaaay longer for that. :grimace:

 

The moment I realized in ep1 that JI and GS weren't married, I actually was a bit reliefed, because this makes things way easier and doesn't complicate things.

No guy swallows this easily. Our (false) pride and ego is too big for that. He won't accept it, love involved or not, he will give her and her "new" bf a hard time, only time will tell in which direction though. Men with some sort of power are always scary. GS already began to look down and pity JH, so he will try to break him. 

The scene where he actually fouled JH during the basketball game was actually quite a foreshadow, he will try to make JH stumble until he falls down and doesn't want to get up.

Men with hurt pride are special, and not the good kind of special. 

 

 

Regarding Marriage, families and stuff, as a western guy I have a different view on this, since I don't know such things.

@pad-hari I think that Lee Seon In's divorce will play a huge part in GS's life. First, SI's husband is a friend of GS so when LSI's divorce gets revealed, this will be the trigger for GS's father to force his son to distance himself from JI. I suppose that when LSI announces to her family that she intents to get divorced, the father will be upset. I am suspecting that LSI will hide the real reason for the divorce. Nevertheless, the domestic abuse will be revealed at some point causing a huge scandal. Notice that her husband is upset because he fears for his image. I bet, he is quite similar to GS: pride and entitlement.

@Dhakra I agree with you about GS. The foul play is a clue that GS will play dirty but we shouldn't forget that his father is against JI anyway and is already talking about marriage with assemblyman Jang. It will put him under pressure.

with GS' assertiveness and self pride I think he will not just give  JI her freedom and knowing  the latter falling for a single dad/ pharmacist at such, most definitely it will hurt his ego.

If GS will forego with the wedding it is only for business purposes only not because they truly  love each other.

I am thoroughly impressed with the first two episodes. The story moved at a good pace, characters are established, and the actors did a real good job. I know people have reservations about this drama because of Pretty Noona but I had no problem with that or this one. I am going to enjoy JHI on screen.

I'm going to start this drama for Han Ji Min who was terrific in The Light in Your Eyes and Miss Baek.  I am probably the only female in this forum who has never seen Jung Hae In. :D 

 

Good luck to the drama!

He will, but I feel like, for a change, father don't have too much power in here like in other dramas. All of them are already in their 30s. I was totally surprised that JI's older sister even agreed to JI's words and also went against her father. This free spirit and talking back is quite unusual in dramas that touch this topic.

So yeah, GS father is already against it, but GS already told him he will sort it out, he doesn't want to be married with some girl, he wants to be married with JI. Unfortunately not because of love, which makes this whole topic not too sensitive for my taste.

I like to compare this drama to Secret Love Affair, which was also from the same director, and in there it was quite different. 

 

I feel like GS will only work against JI & JH because he won't accept denial and she turning him down, especially since he wants to marry. He doesn't want to marry her because of love, but he also doesn't want her to be with someone else.

 

 

Also a note, I am absolutely sure that we will meet JH's former girlfriend and the kids mom somewhen in an upcoming episode. Either she comes on her own and wants the kid for herself, or GS or his father (to pretend damage towards the family's name) dig her out somewhere and give her money so the "family" breaks apart.

One way or another, I am sure we will meet JH college girlfriend at one point and she & JI will clash pretty hard.

@Dhakra You are right that the relationship between GS and his father is a little different from other K-dramas. GS seems to be more independent and he still expresses his disagreement with his father. However, GS didn't tell his father that he had already "proposed" to his girlfriend. He just told him that he would solve it. So he wasn't entirely honest with his father which reveals that GS is not really independent and firm towards his father. Secondly, we shouldn't forget that although JI's father is a school director, he is dependent of the chairman. The latter has the upper hand therefore I can imagine that GS's father might use JI's father as leverage against the son. Finally, GS relies on his father (social status, reputation) and he is not aware of it yet. I can imagine that GS will use tricks against JI and the pharmacist but the father could do the same with using other pawns (JI's father aso). So the father, so the son.

@bebebisous33if he had, it would have been a mistake. Proposing wakes up expectations of his father, so I can understand his decision.

Of course there will be some power flexes by GS's father towards JI's father. They will also probably try to sabotage JI + JH's relationship. 

 

Like I said, I think one of the tricks will be the pharmacists ex-gf and mother of his son. 

 

But only time will tell, looking forward to next episode & more of the  OST.

In reference to cheating discussion, JI knows she is not being honest with KS, so in that sense she is cheating, but she is not admitting it to herself. The whole discussion outside restaurant bathroom between JI and JH is about lying.  JH is pretty straight forward and socially aware of what is happening between them.  He is also aware that she is in denial , telling herself that she is not doing anything wrong , why would they need to go back separately, when she pretended she did not know he was a pharmacist and had never met him before.   She is playing games and he calls her on it.  When she says he was not good at answering texts, he tells her, "I already told you my reason for not answering and you know it".  He is not a game player and doesn't want to be friends.  When she asks him if the reason he didn't want to be friends was because people would gossip about her, he looks at her and says, You know that is not the reason.  He knows she is smarter than the coy games she is playing.  BUT, he agrees to be friends, "Let's give it a go" because he realizes she is not quite ready to be honest with herself about why she wants to keep in contact with him, and he likes her enough to put up with it for awhile.  I do not think he would ever have agreed to be friends if he didn't think it was going to lead somewhere.  He knows she likes him, but she is having trouble admitting it to herself.

@INJINFAN thanku for your insights :D.In my opinion the only reason why she is in denial because she is confused at the moment what exactly her feeling are,she was living her usual life and all of sudden her interactions with jiho (from their first meeting until now them being friends)kinda put her on a spot.Good thing that she did was taking a break from relationship to sort out her thoughts.About why she pretended of not knowing him I would give her a benefit of doubt considering that lots of people were there (known unknown)she can't just say yeah she know him and they have met before it would be an awkward situation to deal with.I know she is taking a risk being friends(not playing tbh may be taking a safer side) with him cause no doubt she is interested in knowing him but to what extent that we have to see when things will unfold in future episodes.So in conclusion it's bit early to judge anyone and yeah as one of our friends in this thread said it's depend on people's perspective whether it's cheating or not.

I was only planning to lurk but then I saw @bebebisous33 here whose thorough analysis of the drama I loved before in Encounter thread. :)

 

I am falling more and more into this drama. I was only a casual viewer in Episode 1 curious after some of my online friends talked about this drama. I love the realistic approach. I hope writernim won't disappoint me.

@Chellsee Thanks for the welcome.:wub::)

@Cheryl295 Thanks for the compliment.:wub::)

 

@INJINFAN @Pmyonly I like your analysis about JI. Yes, she is not entirely honest with GS but she is not really aware of her own feelings. Everything for her is new hence she is confused about her own feelings. That's why I can not say that she is in denial. She simply doesn't know what she is feeling right now. This explains why she has no problem to ask JH to become her friend. In my opinion, I would even say that JH is actually her real first love. Furthermore we have to imagine that JI has never been affectionate towards GS and the latter was the same. She was used to that kind of relationship, she didn't know what was missing in her relationship, until she met JH. Remember how the whole story started: JH showed interest in her which JI had never experienced before. GS has never really expressed interest in her like that. That's the moment she realized that something was missing in her relationship with GS, especially when she is in his car. She got upset by the way he proposed to her. She got annoyed that he thought about marriage because it was more convenient for him. Meeting JH made her realize that she liked being "courted". GS noticed that she was angry which showed that she was not indifferent to GS but she couldn't express her disappointment because GS would have realized that JI had suddenly changed. JI would have been in a terrible spot: she would have had to explain that a man flirted with her. GS has never wooed her because he relies on his social status and thought, he didn't need to do anything.

 

Secondly, I also think that her position in her family played a huge role. She is the second daughter. We heard from the mother that the eldest has never shown any affection, yet she used to confide to her mother a lot. JI took after LSI, she observed her eldest sister. She was obedient and not affectionate. Nonetheless, she was different as she was really frank and straightforward. We can see that JI has never feared her father and can easily express her disagreement. On the other hand, the youngest daughter looked at JI as her role model. The frankness from JI influenced her so that she is not obedient like her other sisters. She does what she wants, she is definitely more affectionate. Right now, JI still acts like the older sister who is reasonable... but we can clearly see that her sister has more experience with love and flirting. I have the impression that JI will play a huge role in her sister's divorce... she will influence her sister's personality, provoke a change in her as so far, LSI is still shy and doesn't express so openly her feelings and her own situation: an abused wife.
