I don't remember either. Maybe a few month's back or in the month when JW and JE were separated and they were trying to make it work with their respective spouses. I don't even think she's pregnant and is pulling a fast one. :unsure:

If SW kept silence maybe it's true they slept together. I hope at the end SW don't stay still and fight for their love. He can take care of the baby without stay with someone he doesn't love.

I am so done with this drama!

They're dragging it for all it's worth yikes. It is like One Spring Night - they should've nip it in the bud so to speak , instead of making the cheaters go on this apology merry-go-round:rolleyes: Jung-Woo's hypocritical bossy wife (I called it!) She actually went there alright. She manipulated Jung-Woo with not just guilt but a pregnancy - WoW.

I'm not even goin' to start with Ji-Eun's husband & his hussy LoL:P 

Soo-Ah seem so thoughtless & selfish to me , but she's truly as I mentioned earlier on the losing end. Funny in family disputes here (in my country) the courts always side with the mother. Idk what it's like in South Korea...

I want this to have a happy ending.  Son Ji Eun wasn't happy in her marriage and look sad all the time and when she met Yoon Jun Woo they had a chemistry.  He wasn't happy either.  Loveless marriages.  I do think JW wife is lying about being pregnant to keep her husband. That just made Son Ji Eun even sad and lost to what to do that is why she left with her husband. She wants to be happy but then you bring the baby in the picture and she is lost herself.  I hope she is pregnant JE. Only 2 episodes left.  Can't wait to see what happens next week.

I don’t think she is pregnant, if she is why did she throw the pregnancy test kit in one of the episode. A woman who wants to get pregnaNt won’t do that. I think she is lying as that is the only way to get JW back to him.

Talk abt pregnancy.. shld be interesting if instead, JE is pregnant (knowing well they never consumated their marriage) child will definitely be JW's. 

 

JW's wife resorts to all sort of threats even wanting to kill herself.  She will make things messy for JE and JW... 

 

Preview gave a glimpse of a distraught JE.. in this affair she wavers often. Strong guilt  feeling so I think finally she may succumb to this weakness and leave JW.

Ahhhh what is going to happen next week!!??? I am worried about the outcome of this seeing the preview. Their spouses are now really getting on my nerves, they clearly said they want a divorce and want to leave but those two just won't let it be. What is the point of keeping them, is divorce such a big embarrassment that she rather die??? And there is no way that she is pregnant. JW needs to stop letting her step all over him and make decisions for him. But at this rate, he will probably believe her and go back to being a dull husband, I just want to slap him sometimes for being so nice! Poor JE, I really don't want to see her devastated. :(

I don't want this serie ends like the jdrama or the movie. JEBAL!!

I hope we have a happy end and not a open end. :anguished::heartbreak:

Whatever it is but I hope no one will end his/her own life.

May I know the ending in the jdrama and in the movie?

I love this drama so much. I want a happy ending for JW and JE to be together. They have missed the opportunity meeting one another when they were younger and their meeting at later part is something they both yearn for. I know morally is not right for legalised couples having affairs but I really hope the best for them.

It will be great if JE is pregnant so that JW has a strong reason to end his marriage and be with JE. It also can be a reason for JE to ask for divorce and the husband should grant it coz she is carrying another man's child. I pretty sure if this happened, JE MIL will ask her son to divorce her and of course MY parents who are into status also will push for divorce of their daughter. 

 

Please makes JE pregnant so that she can be with JW.

Affairs esp committed by married woman is not acceptable morally, culturally and by many religion. So we have to prepare for a "sad" heartbreaking ending..

 

The only way is tht all involved finally divorce and free themselves and start all over again.

 

What we see here is their spouses (including MIL) has no clue as to why these affairs started anyway. Probably only JE's husband who had some sense of self guilt but does he actually understand what being in love, being a married couple is all about anyway??

 

Please do not give us the romeo and juliet ending. Its too sad. 

 

JW has the secret hideout only known to JE. So I hope once everything gets resolved, we see both reunited and happy living in his late grandfather's, as man and wife.

 

As for JA she offered to care for her kids at least until they are older.  Hope Barcelona trip gave him some financial success and shld JA ends up with him, JA's kids can comfortably come and stay with them. The lil doter seems quite happy being around the Artist.

 

Hmmm thts my ideal  ending.. LOL as I strongly believe everyone deserves to be happy in life.

PHS posted a lot of fun BTS photos . I can tell this was a work that was very close to her heart & as a viewer , I can say that she ,Sang Yeob & the rest of the cast were fantastic. Never imagined I would have been so emotionally invested in a drama with such a premise .

@triplem I think what make this couple trully have connection is their strong interest to each other life. And they also bring out the best from each other. 

 

She, asking him about his grandfather and in turn he shared the reason why he interested in biology major. I bet his wife don't even know this.

And he in turn, noticed that she is an aspiring writer.

My only wish, they can be together and enjoying natures together for many years ahead.

I am finally all caught up... so much to say but my thoughts are in a mess. I cried at the part when she tied his shoelaces. 

 

Really hated the fake bossy wife. I too think her being pregnant is just a bluff. She is a person who would even put on an act of happily married couple in front of her parents, faking a pregnancy to separate JE and JW is nothing to her. 

 

What my guess from the preview is, JE being the kind person she is, couldn’t bear to see JW abandon his baby, so she would probably stay away and not continue the affair. But she would be so much in despair thus the smoldering of the red lipstick on her lips... if we recall earlier in the series, putting on lipstick has a special meaning for her. 

 

What I don’t understand from preview is the part  where they’re making notarized agreement not to see each other? Is that even possible by law? Must be a clever PhD idea from bossy wife. And my guess continue, in that JW being the kind person he is, also would just believe the wife without having her take a pregnancy test to confirm her claim. But as days gone by, he would realize that it’s all just lies and he then leave her for real and for good. We’ll see though whether that would be too late or not for him to get back with JE. 

 

Who is is in the car with JE? I think it’s the hubs. Will they die? Probably not... but I really don’t know. And I also have no idea how the original version ended. I am hopeful that JE and hubs will divorce because they included the intern who unbelievably is so much in love with him in K-version and is actually fighting for her love. I don’t remember reading the J-version has this character? 

 

The bomb for me is that Artist is still legally married to his wife. I doubt she will honor their deal about divorce.

Preview .. who was driving d car? Could it be JW's wife to spite hubby, is attempting to commit suicide (again) and this tine taking JE wth her too??

 

Scene showing JE bidding farewell (probably just b4 the crash, JW's wife killed n JE survived) ??  A scene showing JW broken and crying so bitterly.. probably thinking JE died??

 

JW's wife is so vindictive, all out to destroy the lovebirds.. she is capable of anything!!

 

Whatever it may be please dont end this drama with a dead JE!!!

The right thing to do is that JE and JW must divorce from their spouses, because they don't love them. Although that means they don't end together (JE and JW) but I doesn't make sense stay married with someone they don't love. Nobody can force you don't get divorce. If the writer pretend JE and JW don't end together, but at least they must divorce. That is a more real story.

Cannot agree more. It helps that the actors - PHS and LSY have superb chemistry, there's something very natural about the way they connect

i just read that in South Korea the power of divorce belongs to the wife. So if the wife didn't agree to give a divorce, the husband couldn't do anything. Now I can understand why MY wants to keep  JW. If she not willing to let go, nothing can happen.

Where do you read it from? I doubt the law states it that way. It’s more like the person who did wrong (adulterer) cannot force the person without wrong into divorce.

 

So in this case, yes, MY has the right to say whether they divorce or remain married. JW cannot force her to agree to divorce. The person without guilt is the one who has the right to decide about the marriage. This is not only in Korea though, many countries have similar rulings.

Watched Eps 13 and 14 with a great deal of impatience, as we see even more how much the affairs have cost those who love them, especially those who had done nothing wrong. 

 

The most pitiful victims of the entire affair are undoubtedly CSA's children - little Ah Ram who misses her mother so desperately that she believes her mother will only come if she is sick; and Ah Jin who masks her shattered heart behind a defiant attitude, until she could bear it no longer and considered suicide as the only way out. I find CSA highly irresponsible in this matter, and as much as I dislike Jenny, her words are and should be a wake-up call to her, that who else but the mother can take care of her children. Foisting what is her responsibility to her children to someone else while pursuing her own happiness smacks of selfishness, and the fact that she is oblivious to the terrible pain that she has inflicted upon her children makes it harder for me to root for her, even as I realise that her marriage is on the rocks. As nasty as LYJ is, there is no doubt that he loves his children. His desperation as he searches everywhere for Ah Jin, who would easily have been found dead if not for PJM is proof that beneath the mercenary crassness, there is a heart of a father deep inside. As such, this scene broke my heart and moved me far more than CSA or DHY's pain, his ragged relief when at last he finds his child, safe and sound:

Bn8M1j7obEEJQylPChAelfSCtmfP84qto3qU7iBC2z_o0w5Ab8A8D0zcJcv_RPeMeQS0b2Q5hqvWA6YQ5ZhiYCYKqRtiqtBjA65n1D1ntfJXC7SzpAhxFcKoVXka4GTlGUYwRP45zUS3RFIMR19ChR9hn08IXCavinkjl6KzRb5d4zLrFyHokZjKaKHy1urJbT65fPiW3eoZ33b-7Cr3_KmkWgAeXmR0WMzTT1Bi1Mc_Mts9u-lDoT5zWM-rsYBxn3dPK39dNSOgul_Bh2ByBBgKWKW-Ve4nDeGOY_xp1vYN_EUGHj_MPsQAmoeKP1bBRhS4Z5QmlOzhieQZcjwO3JetpYkY1ttcV6AleLs-yhWwENyBeqj7zSHEzzMmSJDC_9Ie68H3vF07Ut_M_qRKPusYCOedAKrbYJTfhl91xEervhnqtfh-_YA7ReYgYr8wRO4Zp5nDcV_YZxvOVJIc6ULOAzPdpwe1oYNzsJoaiRakRCeMh1mVSeEbbfPhtJnpTSN8qlG1Zh7jRb3vAJpP3LzPsBGJ-ri65eBM5DvAMZxFX0Hgu3IPBoqmKgjTxovHYdfjyuqB_Rf6b05e-Wat8Y5GqctyUXwO5ZQ3d5b3xsbw2brM-bqDLAhD0Mejw5bokZK-QtNy3eAxmaGgCe7Vf2CzdeqjUME=w426-h258-no

 

Similarly, the sight of the yellow baby shoes (@triplem perhaps these were the shoes that were represented on the cake??) made my heart ache so much, since it represented the wistful, vain hopes of a MIL who opened up her heart to her daughter-in-law and loved her like a daughter, even to the extent of sharing her own personal betrayal by her husband.

While I understand that guilt is no excuse to prolong a marriage that has died, nonetheless, if YJW had not shown up, would SJE have refused to give her marriage a second chance? Of the betrayed spouses and family, I feel the most for JCK and his mother since love, not possessiveness defines their feelings for her. What does it say about a betrayed spouse when he is willing to change himself for the better until SJE comes back to him again and loves him once more, despite the fact that she betrayed their marriage vows? Not for the first time, I realise just how ironic the drama is, that I find myself now hurting for JCK, when once I would have written him off without a second thought. 

 

I finished watching the original and realise that fireflies are featured after all as a heartbreaking theme in the movie. I probably sound like a broken record but this drama has done a brilliant job in its adaptation - familiar scenes used in a refreshing way. Will it go down the tragic path of the original, or will we at least, see SJE, with the encouragement of YJW, finally step out to grasp her dream to be an author, carving an identity for herself outside of her marriage or affair? I don't believe NMY is pregnant either, so it is only a matter of time before that lie comes to light. Still, the part I can never understand is how both parties can end up signing an agreement not to see each other anymore. What kind of coercion (is it even legal anyway?) allows such an agreement to be drawn up, and how on earth did SJE and YJW ever find themselves agreeing to it when both were so eager to grasp their own happiness a short while ago, unless it is due to the thought that a baby is on the way? We'll see.
