Ist eps was really good. I cried most of it...it was sad to see two young teenagers decide to make a suicide pact because she has been bullied for 2 years in high school ( and we're talking physical bruises) and he has committed some crime that I am guessing killed two others.  The last bit especially , was so hard because he took his life and didn't want her to do the same . And the anguish of Chung Ah's mother knowing that her daughter contemplated suicide, seeing someone else's son dead and needing to keep calm to protect her daughter by hiding the truth really got to me.

 

Seol In Ah was fantastic. There's this sweet warm quality that she brings to the role - her affection for her family , the way she fell in love in 3 seconds on the train , and the emotional scenes at the end - they could not have chosen a better actress.

 

I think this drama has a lot of potential -  I hope this isn't just your average weekender because the 1st episode already dealt with a very real and relevant issue of teenage suicide so prevalent in SK. I am hoping that there'll be proper healing and closure especially for Chung Ah and the boy's family. The romance for Chung Ah and Joon Hwi is gonna be tough - it isn't just going to be the usual interfering MIL ( chung ah's sis has that covered) . The truth that will be covered ( suicide becoming accident ) and subsequently being revealed will have great consequences on the development of their relationship.

 

Looking forward to eps 2

Yeah, i cried a lot too, it's too emotional.. And this episode told us about mother love...

 

I think, it's better for KCH to tell the truth to Joo Kyum's mother 'cause his mom made him did it too, indirectly

I think it’s better for KCA to tell the truth too. I know she’s close to graduating but can they really prosecute her like her mom said for being an accessory to suicide? I don’t know the laws in SK. In the preview it had seem like the truth came out anyway because the judge mom was attacking KCA in the police station.

 

While I don’t really know how that scene will play out at the police station, I find it such a difference in belief for the judge mom to blame someone else if indeed her son committed suicide because he killed the 80 year old woman. As a mother I would tend to blame myself instead of someone else because the secret was destroying my child and I helped to cover it up. Furthermore, she’s supposed to be an upstanding judge and if she really covered up the accident, I can’t see how she expected to continue living normally if she really believes in justice. Of course the secret would probably destroy her life and her son’s life in a place like SK but I believe covering it up would make her live in fear especially if the police would continue to investigate even if it becomes a cold case.

@celebrianna @chuscho Agreed...i don't know why Chung Ah's mum wanted it to be covered up. I did not get this part  - mum said she will be an accessory to suicide. So my take is that perhaps the law is such that Chung Ah would be responsible for the boy's death because she did not stop him. But isn't she a minor? Won't the law take that into account? Also I think the mum did not want the fact that it was a suicide pact to be revealed because of the impact it will have on Chung Ah...but covering it up and lying will haunt her for the rest of her life .On the other hand , I get that as a mum, our instinct is to immediately shield our children . But they don't always lead to rational and correct decision making. I suppose 10 years down the line this is going to be the number one reason for Joon Hwi's mum to reject Chung Ah , if and when they get together. 

 

So both mums are doing the exact thing - JH's mum was hinted to have covered up the brother's accidents. Now Chung Ah's mum is doing the same. Down the road both women will have to realise they are both doing this out of love for their own child ( wrong as it maybe) and will have to forgive each other. 

------------------------

But prepare for tissue , I just checked out the cuts for today and it looks like a cry fest is in store. Did not see Mr Soldier in any of the cuts, so no eye candy to lighten up my mood. I am not expecting a drama of this style and quality for a weekender. It is shot very beautifully. And goodness it is so much darker than the teasers ...I thought I signed up for a rom-com.  :sweatingbullets: But I like it too much and feel very invested in Chung Ah's story that I will keep this.

 

From the cuts...as expected they told the cops it was an accident but JH's mum does not believe. I did not like her immediately pointing the blame on Chung Ah , though I suppose given her state of mind and emotions , it is expected.

 

This scene was flashback to before the suicide...urghhh ...so poignant but so sad...

https://youtu.be/kEMrU5RRf3s

This one of the mum getting the news of his dead body

https://youtu.be/q6s-H1e-_1k

And this was her seeing his lifeless body at the morgue:tears:

https://youtu.be/tSE1ptQIkpE

The police station scene as per preview- she went with the mum's story. Judge mum did not believe as she saw noticed some inconsistencies and Chung Ah's expression

This one will kill me...Chung Ah's  mum discover's CA has been bullied...:cry:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TM0Bm0Tu0Y

Mother and daughter went back to police station to ask to retrieve her uniform but actually Chung Ah had to retrieve the suicide note...

JH's mum suspicious and went back to the station and saw Chung Ah there....

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VD5oviUsBA\

 

The preview...I think the cops will investigate her further...

@triplem, you’re absolutely right that both moms are covering for their child. When Chung Ah’s mom started to cover it up at the pension room and the riverside, I was literally saying “Nooooo”. It’s a very very bad idea. 

 

I can’t wait for the scene you mentioned about Chung Ah’s mom finding out about the abuse. To think that Chung Ah suffered this for two years all by herself is very upsetting. I do wonder why she never told her parents. Perhaps she thought she would be making trouble for them. It’s just so sad. One thing about bullying I can never understand is the parents of bullies. If my child ever did that he/she would be in big trouble. They would be properly disciplined because it was how I was raised and I completely believe in it.

 

@triplem, thanks again for those videos. All of them were emotionally stirring. A sad thought that occurred to me is that it would be hard to watch Chung Ah bullied again if the plot becomes similar to other weekend drama plots where the heroine is bullied and helpless (because of respect for elders) if she does in fact manage to marry our male lead. I’m hoping this trope will not happen. If anything it would be nice that if our OTP marries only after everyone are at peace with each other.

I liked Seol In A in Sunny Again Tomorrow, so I'm going to follow this to see how she develops as an actor. She looks a lot better already. Anyways I suspect JH's mom will find out the truth and she'll decide to help cover it up since she wouldn't want her son officially dying from suicide.

Chung Ah’s mom is really making a mess of everything. While telling the truth will lead to unwanted circumstances, the lies are just piling up and making everything more complicated. I’m not surprised that JK’s mom and the police might begin to suspect murder or foul play. It’s just ridiculous that Chung Ah’s mom is forcing her to break the law if there’s a law in SK against giving false witness and misleading the police.

 

 I have a serious problem with JK’s mom physically assaulting and attacking Chung Ah. No matter her grief, it makes my blood boil that she took the girl’s food and throw it in her face and in another scene starts to shake her violently. That aside, I understand her need for the truth. Her son died and she wants to know the real reason. 

 

The other sister’s story was a welcomed break from all the darkness although she seems quite mercenary to me. Well, we know she’s going to get married to the rich guy but I wonder if she’ll learn a lesson or two over the years. She seems quite superficial right now unlike the rest of her family members but we haven’t seen her interact as much yet with her mom so maybe there’s more to her. She is a confident woman though who is obviously living above her financial means.

Finished Ep. 2 (or Ep. 3-4)

 

This episode was just so sad and Cheung Ah 's mother is just making things worse with all her advice, plus the fact that she hid JK phone in her fridge.  I still don't really understand why they just can't tell the truth about what happened? But I don't know the laws in South Korea, however I don't see Cheung Ah as guilty of criminal acts. To me Cheung Ah is not guilty of assisted suicide-JK went into the water all on his own. CH did not help him at all, in fact she took him out of the water and performed CPR to try and save his life. I don't think he actually took any sleeping pills either before he left the hotel room, so she wouldn't be accused of giving him an overdose. Of course, we need an autopsy to be certain of what happened. Now JK mother is suspecting murder, which is worse for Cheung Ah.

Yes. I agree with you.  Much better to just tell the truth and deal with the fallout. Since JK and Cheung Ah are minors, I think their names/ photos would not be allowed under the law to be released to the press so CA mother's fear of publicity I think it could be minimized. And yeah, I mean the family could be charged with all kinds of things since the mother is withholding evidence as she has the cell phones in the refrigerator, and Cheung Ah stole evidence when she took the suicide note. 

 I think the truth may come out  soon since the mother of JK already suspects suicide.  And I don't think there will be any court trial or jail time for anyone because we know Cheung Ah's older sister will be marrying JK mother's nephew soon and I can't see any wedding happening between those 2 if the bride's sister is the accused killer of the groom's cousin, along with mother of the bride/future mother in law guilty of lying/coverup.  I mean, Do Jin's mother already hates Seol Ah just for being poor. So I can't imagine she would be OK with her son marrying into the family that killed her nephew. 

 

I'm having a little trouble handling the big tonal shifts in the drama between the angst and sorrow of Cheungh Ah storyline and the comedy of Seol Ah's storyline. It's very jarring for me when they switch back and forth.  From the trailers, I was really expecting a lighter tone throughout.   Right now, Seol Ah is an unrepentant self proclaimed gold-digger doing everything she can to marry a rich man. Still, I feel that she wouldn't agree to marry a man she didn't like, even a rich one. I'm not sure it will be love between Do Jin and Seol Ah, but I do think there will be attraction. I'm sure after a few years with a mother-in-law like Do Jin's mom, Seol Ah will be rethinking her ideas that money solves all problems and brings happiness. 

 

I'm a bit confused about Seol Ah's storyline-is she supposed to be divorced when she meets Yoon Park's character? Or is her storyline going to be about infidelity? Temptation?

The first encounter between CA and JH was unusual and fun.

She was completely honest, and it was touching to give him that doll.

Still, he is somehow her first love.

But, I liked it when JH, when left alone, looked for a moment at the empty

seat across from him.

Even, if he forgets that encounter, that book and the doll will remind him of that.

Same here. It was particularly jarring in eps 3-4 to the point I felt like I was watching 2 different dramas. I wonder if this is intentional to show the different worlds the sisters are part of and their completely opposite personalities. Seol Ah - confident, go-getter and to your face. Cheong Ah - sweet , unassuming and just takes it all in . If only CA had half the sister's courage to at least stand up or get help regarding the bullying she got, she did not have to endure for so long ( ahh my heart really hurts for her). SA clearly does not take the bullying lying down - just look at the way she handled her sunbae who took her dress.  SInce we are on the subject of SA, it is clear that Do Jin will be the one who falls for SA ( he's already very smitten) . Unfortunately I think while SA may have some feelings for him  , she will be bought over by the trappings that come with marrying him rather than really liking or loving him , and that I am speculating will be the root of their future marital problems . I am under the impression from the teasers , she's still married when she meets Yoon Park. To be honest , I quite like Do Jin - yes a bit of a mama's boy ( the mother annoyed me no end ) but he had a way of handling her and making up his own mind.

Her son died and she wants to know the real reason. 

I was frustrated with CA's mum's decision  - the lies she had to keep spinning is going to muddy things further. But if I look at it from a very human perspective , in the context of a culture where society judges you much harsher than the law does, I can somewhat see why she would make such a poor judgment . When JK's mum came into the police station and immediately assumed CA as being responsible for her son's death without even hearing it out ( and she's a judge!) , I can see where the fear that CA's mother has come from. 

 

So now I am wondering how they will make the romance btwn the OTP possible. I agree @rocher22 that it was a very unique and sweet first meeting. If only it was not overshadowed by the brother's death.... I still want them to have a chance at love because I like the chemistry between the actors and won't want it to go to waste.( in fact she had chemistry with the brother, JK  as well ) Plus i cannot take KJY having so many heartbreaking tragic love lines ( 100 Days Husband, Secret Boutique) :sweatingbullets::lol:

I think their love will overcome  all the challenges.

Maybe it will have some meaning for JH that JK at least wasnt alone that day.

Still this is a family drama.

 

I agree about ''100 days husband''.

But for ''Secret boutique'', it may be a beautiful and happy love between SW and HJ. :D

@triplem, I think we’ll be in for some more heartbreaking scenes this weekend. Thanks for the preview. Also, about our male lead, yes I can see why he hasn’t appeared much yet but at least we will see some of him this weekend. I’m thinking it’s only after the time skip that he will meet Chung Ah again.
