But it seems this happened...

which is good given that this is a female centric drama where the women call all the shots ^_^

I can`t say enough how glad I am to watch this female centric drama. For once, actresses don`t have to be supporting characters for the men`s plot. Just for this reason, I will watch this drama with interest. But I am captivated with the story as well.

it’s her real hair I think 

Wig or real hair.... it doesn`t matter. I got use to it.  Maybe I am the only one but I find Jenny`s hair suitable for her. It gives me the vibe of a French hair cut.

When everyone saw that scene they jumped to a conclusion that JH is gay while they were not even in a compromising position. Ok so he called the guy darling does that make him gay. 

 

I think it is obvious that he is gay from that scene. It was a sugestive scene. The other man was in a bathrobe. They were confortable together. Jung-Hyeok called him darling. Jung Hyeok always came to the hotel room after different events.

When Jung Hyeok came to see Sun Woo, he told him that he can`t say now but that he will understand what kind of marriage he has with Jenny someday. 

 

Sun Woo said that he was confused about their relationship and I am too. OK, Jung Hyeok is gay but I also think that he has feelings for Jenny, more than friendship. Maybe he is bisexual.

Even without romantic feelings, Sun Woo, Jenny and Jung Hyeok have an interesting relationship. They care about each other but let see what Jung hyeok will do when it will be obvious that Jenny is against his family.

 

The Wi family came to the memorial service for Wi Dong-Seob`s son and the only one who deserved to be there was Jenny. He was her real father and she is the only one who has memories of him.

Wi Ye-Nam is useless but she is not the only one who is ambitious. Her younger sister wants that ring for herself too. Maybe we`ll see her scamming soon.

I really like this week episodes because we saw how well Jenny and Hyun Ji worked to thwart Ye Nam`s plan and work in their favor.

I also think that Hyun Ji`s mom is not dead. Oh Tae-Suk did not kill her.

I was surprised to see that Jenny/Do Young`s brother survived the accident. How sad and hard was her life. I had tears in my eyes when teen Do Young was carring little Sun Woo in her back and turn around to see the sea. Do Young saved Sun Woo and Sun Woo saved her that day.

 

In the preview we saw how girl Do Young saving herself and her newborn brother from the fire. I think Kim Yeo-Ok sent someone to the orphanage to kill them. I makes sense that she would not have relaxed knowing that there is a witness out there who knows she is a fraud.

The weird shaman will bring Kim Yeo-Ok a doubt about the real heiress being alive. It will be a time when she will find out who is the real Jenny Jang. 

 

I have a question... I think Jenny`s real name is Do Young. Her mother called her like that. But how fake Kim Yeo Ok had a girl named Ye Nam? Somewhere must be a birth certificate saying that Wi`s daughter was Do Young. Confused. Maybe there is an explanation.

Thanks @larus for that insight into JH's character. I understand now why he is conflicted aside from the fact that he has (if YN's suspicion is confirmed) a different father then the other 2 sisters. Which brings me to ask, is JH the eldest of the two? I can't find it in the character description but YN is second and eldest daughter does that mean JH is the eldest son. Wouldn't old man Wi know that his son had an elder daughter not a son? 

So YO must be nervous all this while knowing there is a true Wi bloodline somewhere. Lol YO is like Snow-white"s stepmother, the shaman telling her that Wi's granddaughter is alive and well.

 Ye Nam has the same age as Jenny. She replaced Do-Young when imposter Kim Yeo-Ok came to Wi family. Ye-Eun was born after the accident. She took the place of Do Yoon. I think fake Kim Yeo Ok bring her older son Jung-Hyeok as a member of the family. She already lied about her identity. Later she made a narative to fit her family background. Maybe  old Chairman Wi accepted his daughter in law because he was about to lose the last family offspring and nobody told him that there are discrepancies in her story. I am sure fake Kim Yeo Ok had someone to help. I am curious about Hwang (Han Jung Soo`s character) if he knows the whole story. 

 

Right now, Jung-Hyeok knows that he is not from Wi family, the sisters don`t suspect a thing.

 

Jung Hyeok is two older than Ye Nam and Jenny, and he is 10/11 years old than Ye Eun. I find out from Asianwiki (younger characters have the age) or from Wikipedia .

Sun Woo is 32 now that means he is 6/7 years younger than Jenny.

Yeah... it is like Snow White`s story. :lol:  Imagine how nervious she will be when she will realise that Jenny is that girl. I can`t wait to see how these women will face each other. It will be a life and death confruntation. There is so much to lose on both parts.

Jenny Jang has one line of defense — she keeps you protected and you keep her protected! She knows the dark secrets of everyone. She know when to lie in wait for the proper defense. This is what Wi Nam never learned as she destroys every playing field she can actually win but because she’s too emotional she easily breaks down and makes a domino of mistakes. 
 

Hyun Ji -  she’s very calculated and knows her defense line but we all know, knowing defense is different from understanding defense. 
 

Sun Woo is not in love with Jenny Jang. He just cares for her so much that she does not want her to die without getting any justice. He’s quietly falling for Hyun Ji :) But Noona JJ will always be his priority.

 

Hyun Juk cannot distinguish his love and friendship between Jenny Jang as he never understood Jenny but he quietly support her all the way because  he know Jenny knows a lot about him. 
 

The chairman Kim I still do not her move. But she might win to Jenny but Jenny is too strong inside. 
 

I am so excited about this drama! Addicting revenge story! How exacting to the person who stole everything from you.
 

In the end, the three characters before Chairman Kim Will protect Jenny Jang! Exciting!

Maybe this has been discussed before so sorry if it´s a repeating topic.

I have the feeling that Hyun Ji´s mother may not be dead afterall. In that scene with HJ´s mother and Tae Suk in the boat he looked guilty when he pulled out the wallet and saw the picture of her with HJ. So maybe he was able to save her in time and is hiding her somewhere. They didn´t show us how he got rid of her...so there is that possiblility.

 You are correct. She did not die. When Ye-Nam told Oh Tae-Suk to kill her, we saw that he hesitated. I am glad he did not listen blindly to Ye Nam. I think he wanted a bargaining chip, maybe he knew deep inside not to fully trust Ye Nam.

Later, there was a scene, when he returned to the table and gave her his handkerchief, it was obvious that he has a hidden card. He is a phycho but not dumb.

 

Plus, there were some pictures of Hyun-Ji`s mom running from some men.

 

Speaking of Oh Tae Suk....there is someone else who saw him throwing a body in he water that night, on the boat. Ju Ho was his name? He is working close with the mayor. He recognized Oh Tae Suk and mayor Do Joon-Sub told him that he works with the police. I am sure he will talk later about this incident.

I´m curious about his relationship with Ye Nam. It looks to me like they were lovers in the past but maybe her mother didn´t approved of their relationship. Yeah he is not dumb but I was surprised that he would keep that hidden card because previously he said that he would protect her and do everything for her. Was it all talk? what does he really want?

 

Yes that guy is going to be important later as long as he doesn´t make a mistake and get himself killed.

They loved each other in the past but she marry another man (more convenient, chose by her mother, I assume).

He already proved himself that he will do everything for her. He kills to protect her. But he wants to survive as well, so he keeps a hidden card.

 

I like how Jenny is toying with Ye Nam. At first, Ye Nam told Jenny to chose between Sun Woo and Jung-Hyeok but, in the end, she has to really chose between her husband and Oh Tae Sook. :D Jenny played nice her cards.

I also enjoy how jenny is toying with her. Whenever she thinks she is winning, Jenny will play the uno reverse card :joy:

 Ye Nam just looks like a spoiled brat throwing tantrum. With that attitude she will never win against Jenny. I can´t wait to see her face when she finds out that she is not from Deo group. 

 

Btw. I always have to laugh when I heard the family name because here in Germany we us deo as an abbreviation for deodorant :lol:.

Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching

by DB Staff

 

tccolb

about_tccolb2.jpg

Secret Boutique: I don’t usually watch this genre, but I was curious enough to check out the first episode. As expected, most of the cast were on top form in terms of acting. However, I must admit I was a little disappointed by Park Hee-bon. I normally really like her, but she didn’t seem to quite fit the role – I wanted to see more confidence and poise. Although, maybe it’s something that improves in later episodes. The standout for me so far is Kim Jae-young, which is something missvictrix also talks about in her review. He has this quiet but strong presence in this role that I really like.

http://www.dramabeans.com/2019/09/team-dramabeans-what-were-watching-175/

 

****

I think Park Hee Von is doing a good job with her role. Ye Nam is not suposed to be a really confident woman. We can see how she has an inferiority complex around Jenny. She knows that Jenny is better than her, she is more capable but she has that arrogance to not accept it and tries really hard to break her, to surpass her.  She is doing mistakes after mistakes. :D

Ye Nam is no match for Jenny, she is like the annoying mosquito. The final confruntation will be with Kim Yeo Ok and Jenny. Jenny`s real foe is Ye Nam`s mother.

@larus, ITA. I never saw Ye Nam’s character as confident nor do I think she’s supposed to be. I think it’s her mom that’s supposed to be the final boss that will probably give Jenny a fight. Remember when Ye Nam asked her mother to intervene to rescue her from Jenny, she rejected Ye Nam’s request and the male assistant appealed to the mother to help Ye Nam and the mother said she did have connections that can stop Jenny but she didn’t want to go through the trouble of utilizing them for such small issue.

Is the husband really gay or what... is that all for show? 

 

Then dear sW will have a chance at the romance!

 

Goona see ep4 soon...hehhehe

 No.  Please. I'm not in favor of  SW JJ romance.

 

JH gay?  I saw the scene when he called the other guy "darling" and holding bottle of whine.

 

And YN.. whatever it takes to bring down JJ and get ahead of her. She'll use information about JH to JJ. And no I don't think he's gay at all. He like JJ since they were teens. I hope they end up together.

 

And YN hahahaha you silly whiney annoying fake DEO fotune hogger, power hungry, narcissistic fool! She doesn't even know that the Mom is fake... just like her! :lol:

 

Anyway this is not the type of drama I watch but I'm still watching because I'm enjoying it. Las time I watch makjang which I enjoyed was Heaven's Promise/ The Promise. :)

 This is the type of makjang that I like. The background is very dramatic but the chess/baduk moves between the characters is what I like the most. And the key characters are all women. :lol:

Maybe he is bisexual. There were signs that he likes Jenny romantically but that scene was obvious (for me) that he is in a relationship with that guy. Plus other things I already mentioned.

The only thing that could destroy the theory is that he and Jenny staged the revelation for Ye Nam to fall for a fake news. But it is too much trouble, really! Why they care what Ye Nam is ploting? She doesn`t do anything right.

 

Jung-Hyeok was really surprised when he saw his sister. Not to mention Ye Nam`s face... :lol: She will give the pictures to her mother anyway. I hope she will be smart enough to not release the pictures to the press before that.

I have to disagree Sun Woo is obviously in love with Jenny. There's way too many hints on his displeasure with her marriage with Hyun Juk. He's the only one she can genuinely trust and vice versa. Even in their flashback, there was hints of love in his eyes for her in their childhood. I hope they are end game. 

 

Hyun Juk, he's gay as revealed in ep 4. The only love he has for Jenny is unrelated sibling love. Unless he and Jenny faked that scene knowing that his evil sister would be coming to take "compromising pictures." that would be a major twist if that happens hahaha

Hmm I ship SW with Baduk girl :mrgreen:....but you know the set up of the story is that SW does love his noona and would go to great lengths for her. However , episode by episode the blind loyalty and unquestioning obedience to her instructions  have begun to show cracks. He's disobeyed Jenny twice by letting Hyun Ji go. He was not willing to exchange HJ for his own jail time , well at least he was not shown to agree. It just so happened that HJ came to look for Jenny to strike a deal. But I have this hunch, he will not end up with Jenny, it will remain a one sided love ...and I am hoping that Hyun Ji will be the catalyst for him to question his own values and what it is he really wants for himself - it was obvious to me he's kind and compassionate. And maybe he will come to fall for HJ instead.  :ph34r:

It was good that he realise YN is just merely using him. When she "sold him" , I felt sorry a little bit for him ( just a bit ) . For all you know he will come to JJ's team...I like the earlier  speculations above that he may have hid HJ's mum, for the latter's safety.

For those who are wondering about a possible romance of SW with JJ or HJ, wait for the next two episodes that we will know. Otherwise it's true on one side he's always been loyal to jenn, and on the other hand he's disobeyed JJ for wanting to save HJ I think HJ just impressed him and he has a sense of the justice that prevails.

 After that is the male lead and jenny the lead female, on the other hand it seems to me that this actor has posted on his instagram a video scenes where HJ and appear to him a lot: some have already been seen. we know that they will share other scenes as he will be her lawyer

Personally I do not think he will dare to go out with a married woman even if it's a false marriage
