So wait, Ji Soo is supposed to marry the ex the next day? Yuck! He already sent the chaebol wife a copy of the marriage application. This is just too much. It’s very hard for me to watch a woman who has little power over her life even now she’s an adult. I know the scheming duo of the ex and the chaebol wife will continue their conspiracy but I wish Ji Soo would stand up for herself against the ex who foolishly thinks holding her hostage is love. 
 

I know JH will probably be criticized for telling yucky ex that he can take the child and he’ll take Ji Soo. However, I think JH probably realizes the ex’s scheme is to use the child to hold Ji Soo hostage. Bar friend probably filled him in on the ex’s scumminess. Well, even if he maintains custody of Young Min, I hope it’s only for a time and Ji Soo will fight for her child. He’s away at boarding school most of the time anyway so hopefully she will take DJ up on his offer and fight the ex.

 

The bar friend finally confessed. Heh. It looks like he’s friend zoned for life. He’s a good friend but I still think he’s cowardly for ratting out JH in the past. After all, no good deed should go unpunished here.

 

JH needs to get out of that family. The FIL is setting him up for a fall. Looks like he’s conspiring with prosecutors to imprison JH. One of the prosecutors though, seemed irritated by the FIL. I hope this show ends with FIL rotting in jail.

I saw the scene where Jae Hyun went to visit the ex who was sitting all smug and his body language was like that of a king sitting on his throne. I suppose he thought that Jae Hyun would tremble before him. I love when the smug expression dissipated after he heard Jae Hyun’s last words before the episode ended. I’m sure he won’t be going away any time soon but I hope at least he lost this round good and proper.

 

The love of ex-husband for JS is the love of possession. He keeps being as a demanding child who would like all the world must supply him everything he wants. He never has the love including sacrifices as JS or even JH, love is making the others happy and avoiding the harmful circumstance so he decided for fighting JS by the " strong weapons" that are YM and JH.  In fact, he is aware that JS can ignore herself and only focus only to YM and JH. But diamond cuts diamond JH well understand the thought and plan of JS's ex-husband. That's why JS is ready to protect JS without fear of publicity of video clip recording deep kiss on the beach.
 

Until now, I never dislike JH's wife though she's selfish, does not care about the others' emotion but she truly loves JH, she scared of the love of JS's ex-husband for JS because she's lonely princess and her mom passed away when she was only little child, she needs love and care of JH but she does not to make him hurt and get him to jail again, she's little foolish. She only thought that all fault belonged to JS and concentrated to avenge JS, she cannot recognize her fault in marriage.

I think the real evil is JH FIL and JS Ex Husband

 

JH FIL is the one who take him as a freedom card from jail. He make jaehyun goes to jail for his crime and no wonder JH plot against him. Because he is being treated as mere pawn and just slave for her daughter happiness. And also calling him a dog to raise. Wow.

 

SK as far as i see although she act like spoiled child and do something stupid but it shows that yeah she loves jaehyun but atleast she is not in the low level JS ex husband was. 

 

He is just the worst and blackmailing someone to go back to you?? Go away son

 

So do you guys think jisoo will remarry with ex husband? Or will jaehyun stop the plan?

Gaaah, I lost count how many times my eyes got watery while watching episode 7... and finally at the train platform, the gates of tears broke...

 

The level of poignancy in this drama is really nothing I have experienced before. 

 

I too agree that SK does love JH. I think  she will eventually let go of JH just so as he won’t continue to become her father’s sacrificial lamb.

This drama made me turn back time. When watching the scene of the walls in Gangchon station, it reminded me the summer of 1995, I also wrote down "dodomummim aus Vietnam" on the Berlin wall like JH told JS that many Korean people had written something on this wall and in fact, I felt shy currently but at the age of 17-18 year old, like them, I was eager and enjoyable to do that.
 

And it's easy for me to let tears going out because it is similar to my youth in high school and college time full of innocence and youth, fearless with everything. But my first love was only beautiful, remarkable but I never want to meet him again due to current marital status of both of us. I don't let the past can affect negatively the present time. 
 

As regards to JS, the divorce affected every aspect of her life but when she got familiar with the routine rhythm, nothing could change her daily life but JH appeared, SY pushed her to come back marriage life, her bar friend told her the buried love within 27 years, everything seemed mess up around her poor and boring life. Now she felt down at the weakest point. When she decided to close every door to turn back happy or unlucky as well painful memories by donating the bicycle and guitar that had been gifted by JH and went back last time to Gangchon station including all experiences of the escape from her father in the past; and finally, she met JH and he swore to protect her in front of her. What should she do, should she give up everything to go with him again like 25 years? No, she cannot do that because now she's not still a young girl, she must be responsible for her little son and unfortunately, her ex-husband can withdraw her son from her life. Poor her :(

@ktcjdrama @triplem The chaebol wife is not as bad as the JS’ ex but the jury might still be out on her until the drama ends. I can’t ignore the fact that she actually joined hands with the ex to give him the trump card he needs to blackmail JS. She seems to think it’s okay for both her and JH to have flings but at the end of the day who knows how she’ll react when she realizes she just might lose JH. I suspect she will continue to use JS’ ex to solve her problems because it’s probably more effective than trying to control JH.

Jae Hyun look so dorky with glasses.:w00t: So that's how Seo Kyung fell hard for him, cause he melted her cold heart oh please!:P At least she finds Ji Soo's ex creepy so she does have discernment LoL. I still don't like her though.-_-

     Oooh la la~ young Jae Hyun know how to kiss eheheh. And geez Young Woo must you also join in the fun to tear our otp apart!? Haven't you done enough oy? It's like Ji Soo is in a competition with 3 suitors ha-ha. Of course I hope the winner's Jae Hyun.. what he said to Ji Soo's jerk of an ex was nothin' short of amazing. That's a keeper right there.;)

     And I'm so sick of second lead characters in most K-Dramas that harbour one-sided crushes and then choose to confess when the ML/FL has someone. And to add further, they try to ruffle feathers by threatening them, as seen with Ji Soo's ex using his son as a pawn for goodness sakes.:crazy:

No recap tonight, guys. Sorry :heartbreak:

 

Hugs.  Thank you for all the recapping you've done for us thus far.  I tried recapping just one time and it was too hard!  I'm so impressed when anyone can do it.

 

This drama is such a heartbreaker.  I cannot imagine a happy ending but I still love the story.

@triplem, thanks for the recaps from IG. I’m glad Ji Soo chose not to give in to the ex. I see him confronting her again about JH in the preview that @plappi posted but I’m hoping she’ll stick to her guns. 
 

@enchantedyears, no worries about the recap. The raw episode is on Viki now.
 

Well, today marks the halfway point of the drama so I hope there will be a turning point in the next few episodes. What exactly is JH doing behind the scenes although we can speculate some of it. I suppose they’ll be a war soon enough between him and the corrupt FIL. FIL already warned his daughter to start letting go of JH in preparation for this too.

.....so are we to speculate that they slept together back then in that night ?

 

..... all of this fuss , and they haven't had any affair even ... does it mean that an affair  for a divorced mother would cost her custody in korea and  other places ? ...

 

... what are JH intentions towards her now... does he want to have his cake and eat it ...

 

....more coming up

Well, we certainly got a treat today with Ji Soo standing up for herself against the chaebol ladies. I believe chaebol wife put them up to it. Nevertheless, Ji Soo undoubtedly gave them a piece of her mind because they were aghast when she responded. The lady whom chaebol wife put to spearhead “Ji Soo's putting down/shaming” strategy also physically attacked Ji Soo and Ji Soo quickly subdued her. :lol: If only she can continue living her life that way...standing up for herself. 
 

Without subs, I assume the clingy ex is getting involved with some kind of protest probably related to JH to appear on the news. May all his efforts lead to his own undoing. 

 

Regarding JH, I have to wonder what goes on in his mind when he’s with chaebol wife. She always does the talking and he says little. He’s really so unlike his past self. It seems to me that these investigations he’s dealing with are never ending. What’s really something is that all these investigations stem from the dealings of the FIL and the chaebol wife. The chaebol wife is the one behind the supermarket women protesting. I’m beginning to think both Ji Soo and JH are doormats in their own way.

I changed my mind. SK is still going about in her despicable way to separate the OTP instead of saying it openly to her husband what she expects from him. She may sincerely love JH, but is self-serving and manipulative in her ways. I kinda miss the younger her as seen in the flashback in last episode, before they got together. She seemed to be more normal person then.

 

From the preview, it seems that SK's father has something to do with JS's father. More complicated relationship coming for future episodes.

 

That hug at the end... I really almost squealed, but since it's rather wrong, because JH is after all still a married person, I held myself back from squealing. Still feeling happy for them nonetheless.

EP. 9 TEXT PREVIEW

"I... will go back to you."

Jaehyun clumsily expresses his heartfelt gift that he has not given to Jisoo. One of them is to face Jisoo's dad, Hyung Gu, who has turned into a pitiful figure after more than two decades. Little by little, Jisoo opens her heart to the side of Jaehyun that she loved, but Sehun confuses her by revealing Jaehyun's past mistakes in regards to unfair employee dismissal. Meanwhile, in 1995, Jisoo who misses Jaehyun who's currently serving in the military, sheds tears over the gift she received from Jaehyun's parents.

 

--

 

 

Thoughts on Episode 7-8

Huh. And I thought JS was the miserable one. 

 

At this point JH is waiting (perhaps even looking forward) to get kicked out by SK's family. There's no need for him to file for divorce, it'll come any day now. Fingers crossed. Now I get what he meant by "being the loser". We don't see it often, but he keeps getting trampled on by SK and her family :bawling:

 

His parenting will always be overruled by SK's dad as long as he's alive, and no matter how good JH is, he will never get SK's dad seal of approval in everything even after going to prison in his place for FOUR YEARS (oof, I almost cursed). Also, it's possible he's going to prison for the second time if things don't turn out the way he wants. Conglomerates are such a big backbone of Korean economy that no one can afford to see them fall (interesting read here). I just hope JH is aiming for his FIL's downfall instead of the whole organization.

 

 

On Sehun

His ways are so despicable in a cheap way. Just cheap. I have nothing but disdain for this guy.

 

 

On Seokyung

As soon as I pity SK for being "thrown away" by her mom, she slaps me with her own despicable doing. She might've deserved Jaehyun in the past, but after JH's imprisonment and her going to such lengths to publicly embarrass Jisoo for her personal satisfaction, I just... nope. Sorry.

I really wanted to back out of this drama because it makes me so emotional. But I'm already so invested in this drama and I love the entire cast. the struggles!

 

I love the throwback moments of the pop culture. Ep 9: Leslie Cheung starring in Days of Being Wild...They meet again at the theatre screening Leslie Cheung's specials. That was the heydays of the Hong Kong entertainment wave; my parents experienced it. My experiencing of the Hallyu wave parallels with my parents' HK wave. 

Ep 10: JH listening to his cassette tapes!!!! Ahh sometimes I play my dad's old cassette tapes. I love that vintage sound. And I love the moment between JH and his secretary. A light laugh in the midst of the emotional chaos.

 

edit

This story is like the contemporary take on Romeo and Juliet.
