Did the show ever explain how Jenny and Sun-woo reunited after being separated when they were younger? 

 

 No, it was not shown so far. I wonder when Sun woo went to law school. Before or after meeting Jenny again. It is not important but I am just wondering. I wish to know more about them.

me too I wish them a happy ending even if they aren’t together. If this show goes all Daebak and kills off either Jenny or Sun-woo, I’m going to signed up for season 2 of secret boutique and take down the writer hahaha 

 

They will be together even without forming a couple. That`s the beauty of their relationship. They saved each other`s life, they know each other very well,  they are a family already. I worry a little for Sun woo because he always fights bad people physically but I don`t think the writer will be so cruel to kill one of them in the end. We`ll see.

On a side note, I really like how the show changed Hyun-ji although maybe a little bit too fast. She was a selfish character in contrast with her mom who wanted to help the community and opened her home for everyone. But once her mom “disappeared,” instead of receiving financial inheritance, she received an inheritance of morals hahaha She showed love to the prostitute and her son, and deep understanding and compassion to the conflicted doctor. 

 He was raised well. I think she was a little selfish in the beginning of the show because she wanted her mom more for herself. Hyun Ji had a good relationship with her mother. I like how they interact before her mother went to check the boats that day.

 

Why Ye Nam wants Hyu Ji despite the fact that she wants people who are close to Jenny. Because she knows that she is looking for her mother?

 

Jung-Hyeok came back and he will be at his wife`s side.  He took a tough decision. He came back just because Jenny was in danger and needed help or he really chose her deal? I hope to see more of Jung Hyeok, how he thinks, what makes him tick.

 

I am intrigued by another character. Joo Ho, the one close to Mayor Do. He witnessed the moment when Oh Tae Suk threw the body in the ocean. He might know about the drugs. Why he did not say anything and continue to support the mayor? What`s his interest? I suspect that he is working for someone. Maybe Jogwang group is behind him?

 

About Jogwang group. The are so strong now that they dare to attack Deo group? First, they make Ye Nam`s factory to crumble and then put Jenny is very hot position. Who are they? Lots of questions. :lol:

I am looking forward to watch the next episodes.

Im excited to know more of their rich back story as well. The show is good at weaving in the flashbacks without making it jarring.

 

 

 

”Why Ye Nam wants Hyu Ji despite the fact that she wants people who are close to Jenny. Because she knows that she is looking for her mother?”

 

It is possible that Ye Nam wants to try luring HJ with the mom card since that would be HJ biggest weakness. I have a hunch that HJ will pretend to team up with Ye Nam and be Jenny’s double agent lol

It’s a tough call. I think JH is going to lie and say that he will choose to love her but he’s actually there to help her. I think he values his friendship with her over his romantic relationship. He probably feels like he owes her. I think Jenny is going to see through his facade and secretly notice him moping over his lover and she’ll release him in time, maybe half way in the show or near the end. You can’t change your orientation just because you want to.

He is definitely a wild card. I have no idea.

What if the person in charge of Jogwang group is in reality the butler.... or even Yenam husband?  lol

Hi peeps, saw your exchange on Ms Wang and thought I’d share my understanding of what is going on.

 

Ms Wang told Jenny (during the two times they spoke out of the car, once before the reveal and once after) that she started working in the Wi family all thanks to Wi Jang Soo (Jenny’s father I believe) and that he was unlike the usual rich kids, so I think she feels gratitude towards him, and thus tried to save Jenny (whom she believes to be his illegitimate daughter). I believe she does not know KYO is an imposter and thought that she was the wife he eloped with and that WYN is the legitimate daughter. She also somehow knows WJH is not his son and thus she will be on KYO and WYN’s side (since she believes them to be WJS’s legitimate wife and child) whereas WJH is not even his son and Jenny isn’t legitimate.

 

As to why she knows WJH isn’t his son, it could either be that she saw the scene where KYO brought him to see the father (like what WYN witnessed) or that WYN told her about what she saw, or that the age of WJH doesn’t add up (coz if WYN is Jenny’s age, he might be older than it was logically possible for him to be conceived after the elopement).

 

And for the “adoption” by butler and Ms Wang, that incident took place 30 years ago and back then, I would not be surprised if checks weren’t as stringent as today.

 

As for Jogwang Group, from what I recall from Jenny’s conversation with KYO, JG seemed to be either a previous partner of DEO or a previous partner split from DEO and formed JG. Jenny mentioned she wanted to claim it back for DEO. KYO also commented that JG appeared subservient on the surface but was backstabbing DEO, so JG might have been influential on their own, but possibly not at the same level as DEO, and they wanna rise up and take over, but in stealth, since they may not have the capacity to hit DEO head on for now.

 

The butler and the lawyer son in law may not be the most loyal people around but they aren’t likely to be so powerful that they can be the mastermind.

Hello everyone! 

 

First time posting on this tread. I recently started watching this show after taking a break from K-dramas. I've got to say that it was a bad mistake.... not because the drama is bad, on the contrary, it's so good that the wait it unbearable :weary:

Now, it is awesome that I found this tread because I can read everyone's posts while I wait for the episodes to air on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I have read yours posts and I'm loving the comments and speculations that you're bringing into the table. The discussions about JJ-SW or SW-HJ pairings are the most entertaining to me because I'm into romantic pairings :lol:. I personally ship SW with HJ. As some of you have mentioned, SW and HJ relationship is healthier compared to that of SW and JJ.

Spoiler

I recently watched 2 intro videos of the drama that were posted in this tread and both showed a few scenes of them together. One scene will probably air on episode 7 or 8 after Hyun Jin gets kidnapped. Couldn't figure out if Hyun Jin will get thrown into the water or not. But, for sure, Sun Woo will rescue her and will be holding her arm to help her walk to the car. As for the other scene, I don't know when it will air, but Sun Woo will be waiting outside of an apartment or work building gate for Hyun Jin and will ask her if she wants to eat dinner together :wub:

I look forward to see their relationship to deepen. 

 

Anyway, nice meeting you all and I look forward to continue reading your comments. :blush:

From eps 3 - the uncle left the family a long time ago to become a monk  ...but he is the only surviving Wi . Ye Nam wanted to prove that her brother is not a real Wi heir ( she suspects his dad was someone else based on what she saw as a child ) tsk tsk well neither is she but she doesn’t know that of course  . So she wanted to test the her brother’s DNA against the Uncle . Mum knew about this because Ye Nam’s right hand man  ( who just so happens to be mum’s “lover” ;)) informed mum about it . So mum with Jenny’s help hid the old man & confronted Ye Nam. So pretty much foiled Ye Nam’s plans. 

But they do hv the old man’s toothbrush, so I’m sure something can still be done . But because mum found out about Ye Nam’s plans , she’ll make Ye Nam powerless . 

I re-watched ep3 and just like to make a few corrections if i may.

 

About the toothbrush, actually our JJ was ahead of OTS and YN.   JJ fielded another monk to pose as Monk Un San. If you remember a driver took the fake monk away and gave him a white envelope, as anyone who's familiar with Kdramas will know what that white envelope means. We saw later in the episode that JJ met with the real monk UnSan they spoke for a while and she gave him some candies. It looks to me that he has been living there in seclusion for sometime. In a scene before that,  KYO was giving her orders to JJ to find the monk UnSan. From what i gather from the dialogue it seems KYO wanted to rid of the old man. She said something like 'he has live long enough and won't be too sad about crossing the bar' smh I assume its JJ who has been keeping Monk Unsan in hiding.

Hmmm...I am on team SW-HJ...

 

There is no denying how fiercely loyal SW is, towards Jenny, and he definitely loves her, but not romantically? It really feels to me like a brother towards an older sister (though he is a lot more intense), not the kind between a man and a woman.

 

What he feels towards KJH (whom he still doesn’t know isn’t straight) also does not feel like the kind of jealousy a man has, for another who is with the woman he loves. He is definitely upset with him, but it feels more of “why do you not take care of my noona and let her get hurt, but my noona still loves you despite that. And I can’t do a thing to you lest noona is upset”. That was what I felt during the exchange between the two men when KJH went to SW’s office. And I cannot help but keep thinking of the bath scene in the early part of Ep 1. The way SW could update Jenny of the latest happenings while she was in the tub just behind him...it just doesn’t feel like there’s anything romantic between the two of them. At least, I can’t feel it.

 

On the other hand, he is definitely experiencing growing fascination towards HJ and is subconsciously protective, without realizing it. He is unfamiliar with what he is feels towards HJ, because he hasn’t quite experienced romantic feelings thus far, and that’s also why I think he doesn’t feel that way towards Jenny. Such feelings are foreign to him.

 

my 2 cents :)

Such feelings are foreign to him.

I agree he is fascinated by HJ because her actions are different than what he thought she would had done. He gave her ample opportunities to run away. But being fascinated to the point of having romantic feelings? Im not sure hahaha but definitely HJ is slowly developing feelings for Sunwoo. It’s subtle but I see it. 
 

I wouldn’t say romantic feelings are foreign to him, can any human learn to develop romantic feelings? It just happens haha 
 

 

i know the majority of the people support HJ with Sunwoo but I just can’t help but join the Jenny & Sunwoo ship... aesthetic-wise HJ look better with Sunwoo because they are closer in age and because she acts vulnerable around him. Jenny gives this cold feeling but for me I can see small glimpses of her onion shell unraveling. I think the game changer for me why I chose Sunwoo & Jenny is that they both know each other but at the same time they don’t. They hide certain aspects as expressed on the last episode because they believe they can protect the other party. And that they are both willing to sacrifice themselves for each other at moments of their life speak volumes to me.

I don’t know any brother who would fiercely say to their sister, I want to protect your heart. That sounds something like a lover would say :joy:

 

There was no incident in the show that should had given Sunwoo a reason to be wary of HJ. He was kind to Jenny since Jenny first moved in. To me his reaction is more of a frustrated, jealous lover lashing out thinking that he lost his beloved woman. He was against Jenny marrying Hj from the very beginning. 
 

ep 6 would be the biggest showcase of Sunwoo liking Jenny, those fierce loving gazes at her on the ship... if my brother gave me those looks, I would freak out haha What kind of brother would look at his sister like that? Haha

I was half an hour late watching the live and it was a very interrupted watch . . But from what I gather sans the subs was that HJ walked into some trap that was set up by the gangster & she pretty much went against what Jenny had told her not to do . I think it was related to her mum. Long story short , SW went to save her but was cornered , so Jenny went instead to negotiate for her release before SW joined them . They managed to free her . But later on Jenny was really mad at Hj for making this mess and slapped her . SW was clearly uncomfortable but he’s too loyal to Jenny to speak up ..later there were flashbacks to why he’s so loyal to her . She really protected him a lot when he was young . So he’s deeply indebted. 

 

 

 

 

Omg ...I think my lil SW-HJ ship is taking off

Yes, it seems that the writers officially follow the path of a romance between HJ and SW:bawling:,  it's a shame,  I was for SW and Jenny:cold_sweat:. The previews before the drama began had talked about a love triangle,  and love between SW and Jennty, but let's : see jenny's husband is apparently gay:joy:, Jenny had the crush for him and also married him for her revenge  :joy: and SW starts to pull away from Jenny:grimace:.


Good to follow, jenny's evolution and her vengeance
