YH managed to weasel her way out everytime. The guy voted her to stay because she called her "brother"? What? 

I don't think it was a main reason. I think he wanted to mess with Joo Dan Tae and Cheon Seo Jin.

Honestly, the melodramatics of both Rona and her mother are too much. They bring their troubles on themselves.   Rona, give up classical and go audition at a kpop agency. At least you will l

Yeah, the highlight of this week's episode was the last 10 mins of Ep 15. Kim So Yeon's brilliant acting, facial expressions of madness, relentlessness, anxiety, composure and guilt.   

I`ve just finished episode 2 and it is officially for me. The worst drama choice for Kim So Yeon and I watched everything it was available from her projects. This drama is extremely ridiculous that ev

@lebritneeey... I'm in with the shipping of seok hoon and rona too.. Having the same opinion of sweet young love.. Hope he changes for RoNas sake.. He seems soft in the inside.. 

I had not been coming to soompi for so many weeks.. And moreover Many of my kdrama watching partners are not watching Penthouse... I really wanted to know of anybody is liking the relationship development of Seok hoon... And Dang!!!! We have the same wavelength.. Hahahah.. Kim Young Dae has caught my ❤....

He's under the impression that Sooryeon was a bad mother to Seolah and prolly abandoned her so I kinda understand his hatred for her. 

Seolah also told him she wants her mother to be unhappy like she is. So he's only doing what his sister wants.

Agreed! I think sooner or later, the rest of the gang will get fed up with these two, esp once their affair is revealed, and (hopefully), they'll turn against DT and SJ. 

 

I am really curious as to what will happen to Rona at the end of this week's ep. Like we see crazy Eunbyeol attacking her but who will actually save Rona? Will it be Seokhoon or P.E Saem? Hmm!

I won't be surprise that by the end of this season 1, we will not know who kill Min Seol-A. Is Su-Ryeon going to take revenge on Dan Tae for killing her fiancé back in US and many many more. If I'm not wrong, they edited the ep 20 and added ep 21 so as to go into season 2. Are they trying to copy the same format "Dallas" US drama back in 1978 till the audience complaint so much so that the ended the drama. At the end of that drama, nobody know who killed "JR"

 No, Logan Lee is not Min Seol Ah's adoptive father but her adoptive brother who will seek revenge for his step-sister's death. He knows something for sure and to hide his real identity, he's pretending as a PE teacher Goo Hodong. I actually thought Ha Seokjin will play as Logan Lee but he's not. And based on Logan Lee's voice, he is definitely Gu Hodong.

I'm kinda excited on how Seokhoon and Rona will grow on each other. You will notice in the last episode that he's starting to care for Rona most especially when Jenny pushed her away. Seokhoon's face speaks really well.

 

But I will never forget what he did to Min Seol Ah. He's brutal and cruel just like his dad.

 

Oh it never occurred to me that Logan Lee would be Gu Hodong. I had this assumption that Logan Lee was much older and was around Chairman Joo’s age. But this makes sense, seeing that they haven’t revealed his face yet.

but I'm so curious, well maybe just assume that it's Joo Dan Tae and Seo Jin, right? because I think other characters are not very evil to be able to kill a person, not even Eun Byoel. 

why Logan Lee didn't help her poor sister though, while he is a very wealthy man.. 

I think I will be tired if they drag the revenge plot too long, if they wanted to make S2 etc can it be other than revenge, maybe about the fake daughter and about the kids going to university and grow up, married etc.

I'm so curious who is Jenni's father in the jail? lol Jenni's mom is so funny.

This Making came out

 

 

@lebritneeey @OhKneeBee TV I too low key like that Seok Hun is crushing on Rona. The fact he ate the food that Yeon Hee made and then the others took his lead to eat it. He got ticked at his sis thinking she was LYING to him about not putting the porn/cigarettes in Rona's stuff when he saw her in Rona's room. (We know how much loyal he listens to his sis. So for the fact he is UPSET definitely shows his growing feelings. His stares at her and then checking her out while she ran to catch the bus to school. Very telling he took her pain patches from Rona and immediately put them on. Or telling the lie he PUT the cigarettes in her bag. Glad she had the sense to know  he did not do it. I liked that he told Eun Byul he is NOT interested in her. But crazed as EB is for him, if she cannot have him no one can. Sigh

 

-the new teacher the actor is handsome so having him in the bad teeth and long wig must be interesting for him. So he is Anna Lee's bro from orphanage makes sense. Rots that Anna never found out her birth mom and if she knew who it was, she would have been ok. I hope that though he wants revenge for her, he IS doing what he thinks is right as she is living in his opinion a great life. (He doesn't know it is not glittering brightly as it seems). Interesting he took interest to beat up Seok Hun and weird SH thought he could beat him up.

 

Logan Lee---wonder if he was her adoptive bro who got her bone marrow. I love that DT cannot talk to him easily. But if the twist it is the orphanage bro would be cool (the wig and teeth are so bad for the PE teacher.)  DT getting mad at not being able to get him. LOL.

 

The scene when they had the BOARD meeting to oust Yeon Hee. Loved that Lawyer's wife and the Lawyer voted for YH. As someone else noted, calling the Lawyer smart sexy and OPPA def saved YH's hide. He prob doesn't that that sweet talk at home. Notice his mom harangues him, his wife doesn't say those words to him. So his petty behavior to beat up the lawyer who was dating his crush was brutal in the other episode. The announcer wife after hearing YH tales of woe dealing with her mother in law, I think she felt sympathy. Even Jenny's mom (OMG who knew her back story saving these rich woman, hubby NOT in Dubai but in prison) even felt sympathy until SJ made a face and she retracted her sympathetic words for YH. I was happy YH survived to stay.

 

EB is very unstable. Like her mom (to chase RN) with Jenny's pin (I thought she had thrown away) to stab at her? Like mother like daughter, EEEKS very creepy and scary. I agree with others, why didn't Rona check her back pack and pouch, but frankly I don't check -double check every time each morning myself. Also the kids came to her place unexpectedly so she had no time to prepare or secure her stuff. But frankly I would be a little suspicious of them and their motives. Leopards don't change their spots overnight.

 

Def interesting and now SJ is flagrantly taunting Dr. Han who is not happy and got injured and now almost has a malpractice suit. She won't divorce him due to her dad's obsession with propriety and image. OMG. She is so scheming and unapologetic. Both with the other person they most hate in the world. Touche. 

 

Definitely my weekly dose of letting go of reality and common sense. LOL.

We know from the ep 12 preview that Seo-Jin is going to divorce Ha Yoon-Cheol included give up the school fountain to be with wealthy Dan Tae. Dan Tae was caught off guard as his intention was to flirt with her. If I'm not wrong, Dan Tae will not divorce Su-Ryeon because his construction company main investor is her parent. When Seo-Jin realised that she got nothing left for herself and start her revenge on Dan Tae. Same old story same old style.

@MAHJONG KINGAgreed! From the preview, it looks like DT was a bit taken aback when SJ told him she was planning to divorce. It's obvious he will not divorce SY since he has quite to lose if he does that. I'm expecting SJ to go crazy once she realises that DT has no intention to be with her forever and prolly cooked up some revenge plot. Usual makjang story lol!

It seems the children find out that Sol A was killed by their parents - I wonder how that will affect them? Imagine that went public, their school's reputation is going to hurt.

 

I really hope Su Ryeon can explain the situation to the PE teacher, and they can work together, and not get caught by Ms. Cheon. The trailer proves otherwise but I hope the misunderstandings can be remedied in the next two episodes.

 

Is Eun Byeol playing the faint card? Why would she even do that? It seems she was talking with Ro Na before falling down to the ground. I fear her mother is going to set Ro Na up with that. And somehow I hope Seok Hun can do something to let Ro Na be chosen as ambassador. That is implausible but would be awesome to see.

 

A part of me wishes a romance between Ro Na and Seok Hun, but a part of me wants him to be her ally, and her to stay cautious around him while he falls head over heels for her (with all the protectiveness and loyalty, even either going against or 'reforming' his sister) and they'd be the new gang who are more, well, human.

 

As in, Seok Hun needs to prove himself worthy before I can see him as good; just because he falls for the good girl doesn't make him a good guy. It makes me more worried for the good girl, since she can be doubly screwed if not cautious. I ask of you, Seok Hun; prove yourself worthy of Ro Na's attention. What we still dont know is what Seok Kyung has planned for Ro Na, especially after Eun Byeol is out of the picture. 

 

 

I also want to know a bit more about Sol A's adoptive parents, more precisely the relationship between them and her adoptive brother, since things don't quite add up there. (Why would the brother care so much when the parents literally kicked her out? Was there a conflict or a lack of communication?)

 

Like others before said, I want to see Ms. Cheon divorced by Ha Yun Cheul (but he won't have the guts to resign from the hospital and restart his life from scratch) and abandoned by Joo Dan Tae. But imagine the divorce gets so public as well her affair with Dan Tae, so Su Ryeon divorces with Dan Tae and claims custody of the kids and a lot of wealth. That'd be awesome. Of course, Oh Yun Hee should not accept Yun Cheul if he hasn't done what I said above, since until then, he'd literally be a tool.

I think Logan Lee got the organ Seol Ah was tricked into donating to his adoptive brother, I don't think the brother wanted to cheat her and probably liked her quite a bit and regrets it all, maybe that is why he is coming back to avenge her.

If that is the case I imagine there must have been a conflict between Rogan and his parents. Or his parents really feel guilty over what they did.

 

If the latter, why wouldn't the parents take her back? Like they could've just explained everything to her and asked her to come back; especially after she started living alone, or sent her some money over or who know what (was that what the house was all about?) Then she could've done her dog's surgery without having to consider tutoring those kids. They literally were a call away from that. 

 

If the former, then that would mean Rogan is not a pacifist. It would also imply that he had usurped the power from his parents. Which means he has all the more background knowledge to know where Su Ryeon is coming from (since he too was manipulated by someone close and found out about her far too late).

 

It is also weird since Sol A did call him, back when she was alive. Why couldn't he send her a few k₩? That should not be quite as noticable in their bank account.

 

Something is a bit fishy. I just want to get some plausible hypotheses for his background since his appearance at this specific point of time doesn't quite make sense to me.

 

(And partly because I am a bit obsessed with this drama)

Ah yes, I do hope to see Seokhoon being the one who falls real damn hard while Rona still has her little crush on him but still not too deep (that she becomes stupid and dumb). I think it'd be nice to see Seokhoon starting to go against the rest and moving to Rona's side. Especially since we did see that he scolded Seokyung thinking it was her who set Rona up. From there we can see that he's starting to change a little tiny bit! 

 

And i agree that Seokhoon definitely need to prove himself worthy! Afterall, we can never forget that he was part of the gang who treated Seol ah badly. But i have a strong feeling that he would hurt her unintentionally (since afterall, it's a makjang and no one can be happy forever).. though i hope i'm wrong!

Once again, I have to ask: why is YH so hyper? If she wasn't, she would have held back from mortgaging her house at least. 

 

Also, I find it hard to believe Logan is so athletic after leukemia. People usually have to build up a lot after illness and have follow up conditions to treat that take their own sweet time to resolve.

This show is actually turning out to be super interesting lol

 

I just find YH SO annoying. How dumb are you to think that Joo would openly discuss stocks in the lobby? I feel that Rona and Eun Byeol should have swapped places because Rona comes off as alot more sharper and cut throat than EB who's cracking under pressure.

 

Logan Lee is HAWT. I wonder if they will do a love line betwen SR/Logan Lee to add to the angst of it and the typical Makjang convoluted and inappropriate stepsiblings/adopted relationship tropes

 

The kids are clearly up to something but the lawyer is growing on me. He comes off as a clumsy fool but he's quite sharp in his own way. 


Seo Jin is DEFN cracking like her daughter and I can't wait to see her comeuppance

Episode 12 is the best episode I've seen so far, but I don't like it is when YH bought the stocks, but then, I can see that she will play DT in the next episode. 

 

I hope Rona is like this episode for the rest of the show, and if possible, smarter than her mother while exposing people. My ears were bleeding due to her constant screaming and whining. 

 

It is possible that SJ was the one who pushed Seol A from the high floor, and SR saw it. I thought it was just her dream but there's a chance that it's actually her.

 

The housekeeper is disgusting, so far she's the character that I've hatred the most. Please kill her off in the next episode, thanks.

 

@sasha1818 I agree with you, Logan is HAWT and I'm also starting to like the lawyer.
