  1. 1. Who will Seol Ah end up with ?

    • Tae Rang ! The poster says it all . TR is a complete sweetheart, he made her a better person and the feelings are mutual.
    • Jin Woo ! 10 years of marriage , deep remorse & repentance, 200% effort . Deep down SA just needed to realise she loves him too.
    • Men ? Who needs them ? She should just focus on her career... ( please don't kill me dear male viewers :D)
    • Let's not waste their chemistry - I think Jin Woo and Tae Rang should be the end game.
  2. 2. How many more kisses will we get from Jun Hwi and Chung Ah?

    • This is a family drama...so we will be lucky to get one more...
    • What ?! With their chemistry , there would be at least two more.
    • The power of positive thinking - one every weekend! :D

A few thoughts on the latest episodes...

 

I am going to say something controversial, but let me explain. SA is not as terrible as people think. Yes, she is spoiled. Yes, she can be a richard simmons, but she is like that because of her mother. I don't feel sorry for DJ because before he ever went on a date with SA, he knew what she was after. He was spying on her and overheard her meeting with the matchmaker and knew that she wanted someone wealthy. In fact, she came right out and told him that she didn't believe in love and just wanted to be taken care of. He knew what the jig was and STILL asked her to marry him, outright because he has this made up fairy tale in his mind of conquering this woman's heart. Personally I think that is unhealthy. His actions don't match what he says he wants. You want love, so you marry someone who doesn't believe in love. And I am also not buying that he is so in love with her. Infatuated, yes. Obsessed a bit, yes. I question that love because when SA told him she didn't believe in love, he never took the time to find out why. He doesn't appear to have any interest in her family. He doesn't appear to have any interest in her outside of how she presents herself, yet he wants her love. That is a red flag. Had he taken this interest, he would've found out why SA is like this. Her mother. As the eldest daughter, she has sat back and watched her mother, her entire life, work to the bone for their entire family, while her husband sits on his @$$ day in and day out doing nothing. Their family is living in squalor all because he is too proud to go out and get a job because he wants to hold on to some glory from the past. SA is traumatized by this. Her mother has put up with this mess for almost 40 years because despite all of that, she loves the father. :tired:

 

In fact SA and CA's parents relationship is the reason that all of the girls are messed up and have no interest in love and marriage. They simply don't want to end up poor and miserable like the mom for the rest of their life. Take CA for example. She has found a new lease on life despite being kicked out, looked down upon and basically blamed for the fact that the eldest sister cut them off. And all of this has been since she tried to commit suicide. The father talks to her in such a hateful and abusive tone and the mother says and does nothing. I am not buying that the mom did all of that covering up the suicide to save her daughter. She doesn't want any more problems because she has to protect the family and her husband's ridiculous pride. If she was trying to protect her daughter so much, she would have seen to it that she got therapy and lots of love. CA has no support. She is fending for herself while still keeping her head up and trying to make it. I am glad that she has chosen to study criminal justice because she has definitely seen and experienced her fair share of injustice in her young life. This is why I am not surprised once again, the mother wants her to throw her friend under the bus to save the sister because that is who she is. The mother knows the eldest sister doesn't like her or respect her and she knows why, but she also knows that SA is the father's pride and joy and thus has to be protected by any means necessary. 

 

SA is still playing checkers while everyone around her is playing chess. First, once she discovered the affair, she should've started collecting evidence. It was dumb of her to delete all of the pictures of that girl and her husband out of her phone. She should've sent those pictures to herself. She should've taken pictures of the "couple suitcases". Now, his mother is going to use her alignment to the secretary's brother as a way to finally get rid of her. DJ's mom is my second person I hate the most on this show. She loves her son, but her son is also HER meal ticket. She knows nothing about how to run a business. Her place has been kept by her son's acquiescence and hard work. Now that he is in the hospital, the ship is starting to sway a bit. She has been afraid of having to turn things over to her sister for quite some time. She is nervous about JH working there and so she is desperate too. But, getting rid of SA is going to backfire. Hate her or love her, SA is a public figure, with a large following and plenty of fans. If she tries to stain her reputation, and then later the truth of her son's affair comes to light (for example, the secretary ending up pregnant), then they are finished. I believe this will happen because look at how quickly karma caught up with DJ. He is also dumb. I don't for one minute believe that TR's sister is some young, innocent employee who fell in love with the boss. She planned this. She probably saw "the arrangement" between he and SA and knew that love was the magic words to get him. 

 

That man is going to wake up out of that coma and be devastated by his mother's actions. By then, SA will have actually discovered love with TR and it will be too late.

@nubianlegalmind, I admire adults who don’t blame their parents for their situation. I know Seol Ah didn’t want to be like her parents but she could have worked hard and make something of herself like normal people do. She had a good job and could have probably gotten promoted if she worked diligently. I am squarely blaming her for her predicament because living a “better” life doesn’t mean she had to live a luxurious life. I have no sympathy for her marriage situation and I kind of hope she doesn’t get a dime out of the divorce. Many people are not rich but live a decent life.
 

It’s amusing to me in a way because just this week I was listening to someone comment on his opinion of a good therapist vs a bad therapist. He said in his opinion a good therapist is one who makes you take responsibility for your life and your situation rather than blaming others especially your parents even if your parents were imperfect or terrible. The past is unchangeable but the future hold many possibilities when a person is determined to be responsible for herself. SA’s parents might be poor and terrible but she’s an adult now and could take responsibility for her life. If she doesn’t want romance and marriage, that’s her choice too. It’s not required even if it might be a stigma in their society. She seemed like a brave woman so she could have and should have taken a different path rather than act on her mercenary goal of using somebody’s wealth and status. 
 

So, if DJ’s situation is unsympathetic because she doesn’t love him and he knew it, SA’s situation is equally or even more unsympathetic because of her covetousness. I don’t know what made her think money comes without a price. DJ’s mother is indeed terrible but I think it’s good that she’s the price for SA going after DJ’s money. 
 

Also, SA was always adored by her parents. It’s Chung Ah who is often denigrated by her dad and pressured against her will by her mom. Yet, she’s trying her best to live her life in an honest and hardworking way.

For some reason I like the scenes between SA and TR, regardless of 

the place and situation they are in.

 

The scenes between CA and JH are always  kind of interrupted, but I like their

chemistry so its enough to just be on the screen.

CA is not naive.

She realized that JH is too good of a catch. :D

I agree with you. I wasn't talking about the role her parents played to let her off the hook. She absolutely chose this life. I was just looking at the reason why she is like the way that she is. Desperation made her choose marriage as a way of getting out of poverty, however, it doesn't appear she was making that much when she was on the air. Now, she has built a social media following and I think she should use that to earn a living and the lifestyle that she wants for herself. I don't agree with her method, but I do understand it. Like I stated previously, she is going to end up back living at home and having to scrape and start all over. I do think she should receive a settlement in the divorce, after all, if she is complicit, so is her husband. I just don't think that he is going to let her go so easily once he wakes up.

@nubianlegalmind, I did wonder if she wasn’t making much as an anchor woman or if she squandered her money on luxury items and expensive gym membership that she couldn’t afford. Regardless, she lived at home and was probably not paying rent. She could have saved her money and invest in education to advance her career...like normal people do. It didn’t seem like she was actually financially contributing to the household. 

 

The reason why I don’t want her to get a dime is so that she can learn a well overdue lesson about life and get her act together and grow a heart.

Thankfully I really like the lead OTP . Look forward to more of their interactions 

Unintended coffee date :P

i suppose when SA bumps into her mum at the hospital she’ll quickly try to send her off by taxi . @celebrianna she’ll regret all her actions later . Something drastic has to happen for her to realise it 

Spoiler

 

Spoiler

 

 

Just realised from this BTS shot , it was filmed in May 

Spoiler

 


 

By the way the actor who plays the Moon father ( yes the nice cop ahjussi ) will step down from the show . So sad . He was one of the characters i like . I Guess they hv to look for replacement actor

@triplem, thanks for the update. I’m also looking forward to more OTP development this weekend. :wub:

 

Regarding Moon father, I read the article and it’s so sad and unfortunate for all involved. I was looking forward to seeing more of him but I guess they will change actors.

So some  observations that I remember

1. Double X Chairwoman  ( a.k.a CPP - Crazy Psychopath :lol:) surprisingly could not recognise Cheong Ah even though she removed her mask but she knows she has seen her somewhere. I liked that JH is not afraid of his aunt , though he is careful not to be disrespectful.  In the long run, he will be the only who can stand up to her 

2. Seol Ah is still hard to like no matter how I try to see the reasons she has made these choices...but I suppose that taxi scene with her giving money to her mum shows that she has some conscience. 

3. What's a weekend drama without someone having some terminal or serious illness  eh :ph34r:- mum needs a hysterectomy...personally I was so mad at the mum again for asking Cheong Ah to bury the truth , i think she needs a brain transplant. :skull:.

4. Everyone in this drama likes to keep secrets from everyone in the name of protecting the other person's feelings. I wish Moon TR would tell SA he is not the husband...he is too kind...

5. Jun Hwi has been distancing himself from mum as she has not been honest with regarding the real circumstances of JG 's death.  That has created a wall btwn them. He is catching on to something - mum mentioned the release date . I think the person who took the blame for JG's accident will be released soon. 

 

I hope this time CA does not listen to her mum and bury the truth...it feels tiring even as a viewer who has learned to manage her expectations...I think she is going to ask JH for help from the preview.

 

I really hate seeing CA making poor choices

@triplem, we have to get used to the rule in family drama that family trumps conscience. That’s why I’m putting my hope on JH to save the situation. 
 

You made me laugh about CA’s mom needing a brain transplant. :lol: Anyway, someone had commented a while ago on MDL that it looks like CA’s mom will die because of the ending theme that appeared in episode 1. The mother was missing in the picture of the characters. I didn’t see the picture myself so I had no clue. I watch on Kocowa and they sometimes cut off the preview and stuff at the end of the episode for some drama shows.

I checked tonight’s cuts , and yay it has some lead OTP scenes where there seems to be good development . I was too lazy to check out the rest but this was hilarious. Chung Ah called him to meet , she needed to tell someone about her doubts over the skid marks and the accident etc 

So before she told him , she offered him some food ...lol ...

part 2 in spoiler 

Spoiler

 


So JH’s mum went to look for CA . I really like this scene... JH mum In her own way always tries to look out for CA . The IG handle briefly explains what happened . I think it won’t be so hard for the OTP when they eventually get together, I believe JH mum is reasonable & actually has a good heart 

Spoiler

 

The official YT cuts did not show how the two ended up in this place but it’s like they are setting up  the romance . :wub:To be honest in spite of everything ( large cast , a number of sub plots) , the drama does give decent screen time for their interactions.

Preview . I look forward to it 

@celebrianna let me check the introduction on Viu . I hope mum doesn’t die , as much as I get mad at her ..she holds the family together.  It’s true that I really hv to get used to this whole family trumps conscience thing . Frustrating sometimes but I can understand why . Are all weekenders like this ?

@triplem thanks for the clips and preview. That clip with CA and JH’s mom was a tearjerker for me. When she saw that CA uses her son’s name tag on her bag...my heart broke for both of them. I do hope that even if they have more rough patches ahead that eventually these would give way to a solid MIL and DIL relationship. 
 

I do wonder though if the judge will eventually have to serve time if it’s revealed what she did for her son. 
 

Now to OTP, it was hilarious. I couldn’t help wanting her to take those rice grains out of his hair. :lol: It looks like they probably went to the accident scene though separately. 
 

@triplem, yep pretty much it’s like a crime to defy your parents and elders or to do the right thing if it hurts your family. That’s a general trope in these family drama shows. I don’t understand it myself.

I really like him. My favourite oppa here

@nohamahamoud2002 I want to thankyou for reminding me the name of that film. As a side question do you watch those films with subs or without. I basically can understand about 80 90% of those movies without subs. There are some words that I don’t get but I can get a general idea if I get the rest of the context.

 

Anyway now on to the drama itself.

 

Spoiler

 

Wait Cop dad is leaving the show? Why what happened he was so nice. I generally don’t have any idea of what is going on with these actors and actress most of the time. Sometimes I find things out by chance but mostly I don’t go out of my way to find out. So it would be nice to know what’s wrong. Is he ill or is there some other problem?

 

I found it amusing how Soldiers fellow worker are unaware of his true identity and they ended up mocking his Aunt. Heck they gave her a name free of charge. So here are the names that me can call her. Harpy, Double X and Crazy Psychopath all work for her in my book. Speaking of her she finally remembered who Cheong Ah is. This doesn’t bode well for the sisters. Speaking of which I think it was a mistake for Baek Rim to recognize Seol Ah as this may backfire on all of them.

 

I feel that since Seol Ah might get cornered by Harpy she may make some wrong choices as well just so that she can keep her position in that house even if it means that she hurts a wrong person. For instance, I can see a possible situation where she may end up offering him a deal where he takes the fall for the accident. How would she convince him? She could suggest to him that this is Cheong AH’s suggestion or to do it for her (Cheong Ah’s) sake etc. perhaps he might even do that unless Soldier can find evidence and use it to clear his name.

 

I am really starting to get disappointed in Cheong Ah’s mother. she is emotionally blackmailing her daughters to do what she wants even if this means ruining another person’s life. What is worse is that the other person is not only someone that she knows but he also was someone she was considering as a potential SiL. So she gets double negative points from me. Doesn’t she know that the truth will eventually be revealed what is she going to do then. Not only that but she pretty much revealed her other daughters secret to a random stranger. Good thing that stranger is going to be her future husband but still what if said stranger were to reveal this fact online then her daughter’s life would have been ruined and she would be the one to blame. Though then again perhaps it would free her daughter who still hasn’t realized that she is trapped in chains.

 

Harpy has a real strange way of thinking. So it is okay for a son to be in an affair because it is called love. She sure has a strange way of justifying her son’s so called actions. But if a woman cheats then it is an affair. LoL I don’t even have the words to try and figure this woman’s mind. Not only that her words mean that she is okay with the secretary as her future DiL. Sorry but I don’t buy that. She had so much trouble approving Seol Ah and that was considering the fact that she even had her own biological family. But the secretary is adopted and we all know how Koreans are when it comes to adopted children in these shows. She is going to throw another fit. Somehow I suspect that she really doesn’t care about the secretary is merely using that as an excuse to get Seol Ah divorced from her son. After that she will let her son be with the secretary for a while (ie dating) before telling them that she disapproves of the secretary as well.

 

As for Cheong AH’s family they can get on one’s nerves as well. They don’t want to put in the hard work and get money for free. The sister wants money for new tennis rackets and well let’s not even talk about Dead Beat Dad. I guess he is going to face is own dose of Karma when his daughter ends up selling his medal because she is short of money for new rackets. I guess they will only discover the truth when the family is in trouble and needs money to get out of that jam and someone suggests selling the medals for said cash. But speaking of her she atleast is going to get a chance to play tennis. It seems to be her love but she is sensitive enough regarding the family finances that she was willing to sacrifice it. Still we can safely assume that the student tennis player that Soldier is hoping to recruit is going to turn out to be her. If this is the case the company will probably provide her a few perks such as training classes and new rackets. If this is true, her dream may end up coming true. Though I wonder how much the Judge will play a part in this. She feels that she owes Cheong Ah’s family so she might be the one to support the sister. In a manner of speaking I don’t know if that is such a good idea though.

 

On one hand I am enjoying the preview from the next episode where Cheong Ah is secretly rewarding the conversation of that family trying to bribe her so that they she covers up the accident as well. On one hand I hope that she has a copy of that recording and hands it over to Soldier rather than her sister because if she does that I have a bad feeling that both the money and recording are going to disappear for good. Harpy on the other hand may gloat all she want that she can judge people and that they are all after money and that is why she will hate Seol Ah and her family but when that recording and other evidence comes to light she will get her dose of Karma.

 

Also she seems to be jumping the gun to the fact that her son was in love with his secretary and that he was cheating (or according to her wasn’t) and thus wanted to cut ties with Seol Ah. Like I mentioned earlier should another person be responsible for a person’s one sided feelings. She is so going to regret her actions later on if she manages to get Seol Ah divorced when he is still in a comma and by the time he recovers the damage is already going to be done because she will now have found someone else to love and all. This will probably end up harming the mother and son relationship for good. I guess that will be her dose of Karma.

 

People have pointed out that he could have been a better SiL by finding out more about her family or the fact that she could have secretly been sending her family money but I think that might be jumping to conclusions. We have to remember something and that is Seol Ah signed a marriage contract before her marriage and while we don’t know all of the details of said contract (we learned a few in the recent episodes) we can imagine some of the clauses over there. We know for a fact that Harpy doesn’t like sharing her family wealth and wants it all for herself. So it probably is safe to imagine that some of the clauses may be like if Seol Ah gives any of her family money from her husband’s side then she gets nothing. This would also probably apply if her husband did the same thing since the mother would probably assume that Seol Ah convinced him to do so. Perhaps they may be cause for a divorce. As I said we don’t know the full clauses of the contract so I am willing to give them the benefit of doubt for the time being. It is also possible that the son may be unaware of the marriage contract so it may be possible that he gives Seol Ah a certain amount of money for her family to spend but she never gives it to them. Then again does she even know where the family lives. Remember they snuck out of their old home just so that they could avoid the Judge.

 

Though it may be safe to imagine that her marriage happened after they moved out because it seemed like she was aware of her mother’s new job selling yogurt in a cart. This could be assumed by her reaction when Chef ended up giving her some yogurt to drink.

 

 

Will add more later on as I need to go for the time being. So till then take care all of you and hope that things don’t get worse for the main leads. So till then keep posting as I look forward to reading them.

After watching some of the more recent episodes, I have come to the conclusion that JH's mother knew all along that JG committed suicide. Think about it. She is a judge so I am sure she has heard it all. But it makes no sense for her son to have the strength and swimming capacity to save another human being, but not himself, in a quiet lake no less. Also, why would you order an autopsy, then when the results come, never take the time to actually look at the results? No, his mother knows that her son committed suicide and she knows why. She just wanted CA to confirm it in the past, and CA refused to do it. Now that some years has passed and her son ended up being painted a hero, she realizes that CA was trying to protect her, more because of her mom's urging, but she also realizes that CA cared for her son and means well. 

 

SA is so dumb. When she went to eat with TR and realized her phone died. Then turned around and followed him to the church to sleep, I was like, she couldn't take five minutes to just check in on her husband. Possibly let one of the nurses know where she is in the hospital in case something happens? Nope. She just aimlessly follows TR around, knowing her MIL is crazy as all get out, so when she got slapped, I just felt like she should have saw that coming. Honestly, living into wealth is not worth turning your back on your family, nor is her MIL worth all of this. She should stay by JW's side until her gets better and bow out gracefully. I would NEVER want to be a DIL of that family. His mother is stone nuts and honestly she acts like her son is her man that she reluctantly has to share.

 

I feel sorry for the youngest sister. She has to give up her dream of playing tennis and she has to give her bank money to her father because he is so trifling and pathetic. He is just horrible.
