OMG - EDIT-

 

SPOILERS for EP 10 - MAJOR spoilers for CH and EH!

 

CH and EH were walking around her hood, cause there was a park CH wanted to take photos in. So EH became his model.. he talked about how Gunjoo spoke to him, and could tell he liked her.. somehow their conversation continues and EH says some stuff, and he said I wanted to tell you something, but now i dont want to anymore.


EH bugs him, saying shes curious now and needs to know. So he goes....

 

Chanhyuk to Eunhee: I really like Jiwoo as a younger brother, and Eunjoo too, i like her. But the reason is.. you. 

 

CH: To me, my friend is the most important.

 

EH in her head: Is there a friendship that is more perfect than this? While my heart flutters, it feels sad... (probably cause she feels they won't be anything more than friends).

 

Then to break the awkwardness....

 

EH: isn't this a lie! (jokingly)

CH: You are quick with things so obviously you wouldn't have believed this
EH: You side my sister, and you know more secrets about JW than me.. as if i would believe it. 


And then go on to banter, CH saying EH cursed him etc. 

 

I'm deaaaaad THIS friendship is so cute and lovely and like even if they don't ever date, i'll be sad but i'll be fine. Haha their relationship is so similar to the Taiwanese drama In Time With You.

 

Anyway, more MAJOR and better spoilers of EH and CH below!

 

CH calls EH. EH answers being super drunk and "happy". And he asks why she's like that, and she said if you're curious, 500 won. And he says he is going home after sending nuna off... and she just says into the phone happily for him to go home.

 

He goes and find her, and she starts singing a song with his name. He tries to take one of her beers, and she tells him to get his own. They talk about how Eunhee sent him a photo of Eunjoo when he was in the army, and she said it was because eunjoo was pretty. He said theres alot of he took of EH too that were pretty. 

 

Some old school song starts playing and they reminisce it. They talked about the first time he took photos of her. it was in autumn when they were 20 years old and they were drunk. Talked about how much they drink and said being young makes so much difference. She said if she had to rank the perfect nights of her life, that night would have been number one. CH looks shocked. He said he was honoured. We both didn't look at each other as a guy or a girl, and were just platonically friends. They had good chats all night, talking fun stuff, serious stuff, and even dreams. She said she kept something from the night, so that she could remember it forever. He asked if she did remember it for a long while. Then she said, this is the first time im telling you this. Said: the next day when I went to school, i suddenly saw you as a man. when i go to school, you are there.  *CH in shock* She said, i was always thinking about how we hung out till the wee hours, and no one else in the school knew about it. She covers her mouth saying: we had a secret only we knew. Then she said, she kept thinking about how when she met his eyes, what should she do, etc. like a girl in love. Then she had her heart fluttering as she went into the lecture hall to find out the secret they shared, he had shared it with everyone else including Jongmin. all the photos he took of her. So she was embarrassed and upset that they were found out, so that night, she ended him as a dude in her life (friendzone). CH drinks awkwardly. Saying they didnt even date and hearing all these feels weird. 

 

CH follows behind Eunhee as she jumps around drunkly as they walked. He then smiles at her subtly.

 

CH in his head: To you it's a memory, but to me, i feel like this is the start.

 

And he walks to her... goes close to her, like he was coming in for a kiss or hug. Episode ends.

 

Other Spoilers

- Eunjoo is ready to divorce TH. TH has been super nice to her all ep, i just wish his bisexual rather than gay now because i feel like they would be such a cute and sweet couple now.

 

EX gf of Gunjoo meets Eunhee to tell her she's going back to America, and told her a whole ton of things, including how they slept together on their last night. She then asks Eunhee to pass Gunjoo something. Lol this girl's not cool at all.

 

Eunjoo goes to TH's mum to tell her off (politely) about screwing TH's life.  

 

Eunjoo meets Chanhyuk. Talks about how she looked at the wedding photos again and asked what he felt and saw when he took their photos.

 

Eunjoo then talks about EH to CH: Eunhee liked you before. CH looked so shock. She explained about what Eunhee did then that made her know she liked Chan hyuk. She said that there was a time she kept talking about CH after she entered uni, and it was so obvious, but one fine day it finally stopped (assuming it was the time jongmin asked her out).

 

Eunhee is drinking alone, possibly being sad and tiny bit jealous of CH meeting EJ, but of course because she is selfless, she doesnt do anything and just drinks alone. 


Gunjoo comes and look for EH to find an empty desk.


Mum tries to give dad the money again. Dad tries to tell her, saying he will give her expense even tho they are separated, but she said not to use it as excuse to meet her. Mum scolds him saying how he could have kept such a secret from him for so many years. He then asks mum, if she doesn't have any secrets from him. and he said that he knew Eunjoo's real dad came for her wedding.

 

Eunjoo talks to TH about finding TH's mum today. He said leave her out because this is their problem.

 

MY SHIP HAS SAILEEEEED.

Eps 9 turned on the waterworks for me. Poor EJoo ! I was sorry that this has been the season of shocking news and revelation for her. I hated it when she immediately turned on dad , and doubted his love for her. But I know more than anything it is a "knee-jerk" reaction and response . She is already greatly suffering from her marriage breakdown , and this is really the worst timing for her to find out about her birth secret , if I may call it that.

 

I can be honest that I feel very much for mum and dad's love story.  I was glad that the fruit guy was not her "lover"...so the writer trolled us and is trying to make a point that making assumptions indeed makes a fool of both you and me.  I feel that there's hope for them to reconcile ...the flashback stories of them always tug at my heart strings , and I can tell how deeply dad loves mum, and in spite of everything there was a time mum reciprocated that love too. I want to know the story behind Yong  Shik...is it really his biological son...I cannot imagine dad having an affair. 

 

Thanks @Redpinkboxes for the recaps...finally , I am glad that EH and CH are confronting their feelings for each other...this  ship can definitely sail...:ohboy2:ahahahah....no trolling please, TVN

 And I cannot stand VP Im's ex or whatever you call her ...EH does not need to be entangled in this mess. 

Spoiler

 

The preview has mum and dad rekindling their love for each other ...please say it is so...but dad has some headaches. And I think the family is finally communicating and coming clean with all the secrets. It will be a painful process , but it has to start somewhere

OMG I was busy I have not seen ep 9 yet so I am going to roll and watch both ep 9 and ep 10 tonight (together).

 

@Redpinkboxes BLess your warm generous heart!

 

Always big shoutout to @triplem as always!

 

OMG EH and CH, I like she shared her precious memory and confessed liking him as a man. Then to have EJ share that EH liked him LONGER Than that. Awwwwwwwwwww. CH wondering why EH sent a pretty pic of EJ to him. I like their friendship here. I agree even if they don't date (though I think they will as drama writer's gods want it) I agree reminds me now of "In Time with you" (OMG loved that drama and their friendship).

Spoiler

I was crushing big time on Chen Bolin and Ariel Lin. They were so great in it. I watched the Korean remake in 2015--not bad but still loved the OTP in the Taiwanese drama original of 2011. Just a big bias as both were good productions. (I always worry about remakes as not always done well but I admit alot have been well done though.)

 

oh so the fruit seller is not her lover, just admirer that mom is not serious about. (They did make it seem so as he was university prof ) and she loves poems and went to college. So that was inferred to troll us. Sigh all these red herrings.

 

I agree I wish TH was bisexual. But EJ needs to move on and I am glad she did in her way try to stand up for TH.. Awww those two.

 

CH telling EH why he is close to JW and willing to listen be friends with EJ is all because of her. OMG squeeals. 

 

DANG the crazed EX has to bother EH?! GW --the ship has left you and I am glad EH is moving on.I really cannot wait to see a tipsy EH with CH. With drinks you get the truth and I loved how she shared her heart of that past "memory"

@Redpinkboxes @triplem  ❤️
 

Loved EH telling off the ex. She doesn’t deserve this negativity in her life. VP needs to take some time off and understand what he wants in life and move on. And maybe take some classes in how to not to get the girl through stalking/cat fishing.

 

Love how both the sisters are looking out for each other. EJ knew that EH would be hurt had she had taken advantage of CH’s crush on EJ. It goes to show that even though family might hurt you, if you are lucky enough family will be there for you when it counts.

 

Next 100 % pct sure that EH will either puke or get a call during the expected hug /kiss scene. The writers do love to troll us. Hopefully the father does not have a brain tumor. By the way, when are we going to meet the younger brother’s girlfriend?

@blue003  I agree that EH telling off the ex was awesome! :coolcat:

 

I just did not care for the ex smirk and smugness talking to EH. The fact she was saying return this to GunJ oo(ordering her to do it) Then saying they slept together --it was comforting. But also sharing that GJ was in Korea but planning to return to the USA after settling matters in Korea. She really wanted to rattle EH. Plus egg her on asking why didn't you contact him? I had his cell phone hostage but noticed you didn 't. Seriously? Glad EH was like, I figured he had a reason to not contact me. 

 

Agreed, catfishing a gal and not being truthful then starting a fling when you have a MESSY uncertain situation with your ex. Ok messy as the ex doesn't want to let you go for revenge. Dang. You both deserve each other if you pulled that on her 3 yrs prior to only pull on  you when you want to break up. Sigh. Two bird of a feather flock together.:emmm:

 

Interesting in the preview Seo Young says to Eun Hee--- why do you think Chan Hyuk is a player? 

Also EJ saying memories with the family were nothing /not much to her. Harsh.:brokenheart:

 

The clip of CH looking softly at a tipsy EH was cute. I loved the VO when he said ==for your it was a memory but for me it was the start. OMG the look of determination walking to EH was sexy. (Are we going to be trolled? I wish they will kiss but I doubt it. So many red herrings it get annoying. But the buildup to have a hug/kiss seems immediate---oh my heart).:fiercebunny:

 

So here saw this clip

 

CH and EH reminiscing of college and she decides to confess to CH hear what she thought

I couldn't wait! I had to watch today's episode RAW. Thank you @Redpinkboxes for the recap of the OTP in ep 10 :heart4: The ship has finally sailed! They're closing the space in between them!

I'm so happy. I love how naturally these two came back together in their lives. Love that @Nodame pointed out that their relationship is similar to In Time With You OTP!!

 

Here are my long overdue gifs of the actress who plays mom. The way she expresses her facial whimpering for each emotion/feeling, from the shock/surprise to the anger/frustration is minutely different. Brilliant acting!

Dam it that was cruel we've been wating so long.....kmt a whole wk urgh...

 

Today's episode just further strengthened my dislike for the mum. Don't know why just can't take to her, she's go a bit of a cold fish vibe going. Feels like she grew fond of him off but not sure she ever truly loved dad. Glad EH wasn't taking no nonsense from that cow.  It's time EJ go see a shrink...... Now it makes sense, dad's expressions has seemed a bit off at first though it was just from the accident but the he seemed alright for a bit from the preview if he's sick it all makes sense why he's started to seem a bit SEN. Mum and dad actors are doing a great job. Also it looks "little sister" hasn't really given up like she said she has, urgh looks like she going knock the wind out of our ships sails for a bit...urgh too early for that sh... The ship hasn't even left port properly yet  urgh .....

I really want the CH and EH ship to sail but I saw the translated preview from ep 11 and I forgot what her name is but that girl that works for CH asked EH why she thinks her boss (CH) is a player. So I am feeling a little discouraged. Also I feel like EJ is a lot like her mom. And her parents relationship is so frustrating. You guys are married. Why aren't talking about these things or confronting each other about issues you have? You think he's hiding another family but you don't ask him about it. You think she invited EJ real dad to the wedding or had an affair but you don't ask her about it. What's the point of them getting married if they can't confide in each other. You might as well just be two people who co-parent. I understand that every marriage has it's own set of issues and no marriage is perfect but the amount of misunderstanding that could have been solved if they talked to each other about certain issues is frustrating. I'm still rooting for them though. Especially because it looks liked the dad is still sick. Lastly, I agree with CH, EJ needs friends.

I just finished watching with subs. I love the character development because it is so fluid. 

1) EunJoo says (to TH) "I think our child would be five years old now if I hadn't had that miscarriage." She breaks down and cries "I need to stop acting like I'm fine."

Another scene: Her opening up to CH about her flaws and wounds and also tells him that EH used to like CH. What we see is that EJ is opening up her heart. She's learning to become vulnerable and to embrace her feelings! Love EJ so much! I can't wait to see what she demands when she divorces TH. 

 

2) At the volunteer center, the mom and another mom talk about envying each other's family. Mom notes "I guess nobody is perfect." 

It hits a spot because family members hold an expectation for each other. What matters the most in communication is honesty and openness. So even though the family as a whole are having difficult conversations and going through difficult emotions, they are being honest with each other! 

 

3) Eunhee ends her love triangle with a clean cut! She draws a line between GJ and her. She also passes the cellphone back to the ex and straightforwardly warns her "I don't want to be involved anymore." 

Yes girl! EH has always been wrapped up with emotions and thoughts. She empathizes a lot, but this time, ending the love triangle was a quick, confident decision for herself. Yay EH! 

 

I'm curious as to how JW's growing arc will be like. I'll be waiting! And I just realized that we have three more weeks left....noooooooo

I wanted to beat Sang Shik, once you marry somebody, you have to speak with your partner and they have to agree on major decisions you take. Especially when these have lasting impact on your finance and families well being. Jin Sook never confronted him, mistake and she payed heavily for that. But what the heck. I would be livid if my husband did that without consulting me. I really think the two should divorce. They are so ill matched. Neither speak to another and both go around doing whatever.

I think that's the thing, with 6 eps left, they kinda still wanna drag it between EH and CH, which is fine. Kdrama ways. Im just so glad they both came clean with their own feelings to themselves. Or at least CH. We have been guessing all drama whether he cares about EH as just a friend or a guy, but he is finally clear with himself. 

With the preview, it does seem like EH is avoiding him, maybe she is thinking that he doesn't actually like her, plus what's happened in ep 10 was happening when she was drunk, so she wouldn't have remembered it well. But i think it shows EH drawing the line again. She likes him, it is obvious. But because she doesn't wanna lose him as a friend, she forever stands behind the line, not wanting to come clean with her feelings. Just like when she said "I wanted to make today our first day of being in a relationship after hearing what you just said" then goes on to saying its a joke.

 

Yeah, EJ and Mum's frustrating. I love EJ's character, and but sometimes i feel like all you gotta be is honest. She is getting there tho. Like how she broke down to TH saying she keeps thinking about the baby they would have had who would be 5 yo now. But yeah, i really like TH and EJ and how they sincerely care for each other. And even though EJ loves TH in that way, and TH doesnt love her in the same way, he rly wants her to be well and okay. 

 

You all are welcome! The agony of waiting for subs when you know an ep is out is tiring so i thought spoiling y'all might do the job! hahaha Especially when this ep is so filled with our OTP <3

 

@Nodame I'm a huge sucker for friendship romance. Things like tinder, or guys like Mr Im... Sometimes you get into relos without even knowing the person, and whatever you see in them on dates is just an image they want you to see. But friendships like CYQ and LDR in ITWY, or EH and CH here, just is everything. Someone you spent years with, knowing the person inside out. No lies, alll real, no image. He knows her inside, n she knows him inside out. Thats when they can just be honest and happy with each other, cause they already knew any flaw from ages ago.

Finally watched both of this weeks episode!

 

@ponderings Love your post on the colors and characters! Also I agree on the quotes and comments on EJ, EH and expectations we have of family.

 

@Nymeria289 YESH, JS totally was right to be upset with SS. To not share about the accident and have this fester all these years! Then he just never talked to mom thinking she was cheating on him. Oh oh! All these secrets! Dang!

 

@Sirry Usly I am ok if they don’t get together CH and EH.  @triplem shared thinking of the Taiwanese drama OTP is like them as they had a similar friendship with comfort and theirs was longer still those similarities.

 

@Redpinkboxes Thanks me too I love the deep friendships as well! Sigh. Friendship romances do rock! I love them too! Their is no mystery as you know all the warts and all with no illusions before dating. 

 

- Glad SY giving up on her crush on CH. she was sharp thinking his meeting with GJ was a marriage meeting gal lol.

 

-Old classmate photo shoot of their kid’s first bday.  CH being teased about EH sexy letter that won a writing contest that even her ex was jealous of CH . To know EH sent pic of EJ instead of herself as the burden and her self doubt of her looks . Aww.

 

-CH asking about the letter and EH cutely denying she wrote it in embarrassment. But she was observing him- his sharp jawline & long fingers lol

 

-EH treasuring one life top memory was with CH when she was alone getting her writing award and later hanging out walking 10k steps all night. So sweet she confessed liking him after that night as a man . Then she was disappointed and stopped liking him after leaving he told every one. ( I feel he did wanting to share how proud he was of EH. To her she thought it was a precious private memory . I bet precious to him but he wanted to share with the world!)

 

-Interesting JW blurted CH is popular got marriage meetings to EH when dragging him out for the family meeting. Def it prob got her to share her breaking up with GJ.

 

-EH and EJ emotional talk after EJ found out about her birth dad. She realizes how she wronged mom being her weak point to dad, EJ felt remorse. It was sad to see EJ crying alone away from others. She is smart to talk EH lay off JW to let him process .

 

I liked EJ talked to TH mom for closure and letting her know TH should be able to do what he can for his life .

 

Sad that TH mentioned EJ was his family and friend rolled into one. What a heavy burden to bear. 
 

When Youngsik son ran to EJ into an embrace and said he was 5, I wondered if EJ would be triggered by something. Later to hear if not for the miscarriage their child would have been 5. Omg ! 
 

CH confessing why he likes her family all due to her (EH). Aww that friendship confirmation was sad and lovely I agree. But doesn’t have to be that way . EJ told him EH draws a line to protect herself and to guys she feels out of her reach. Then saying EH mentioned him constantly until she stopped. Laughed EJ said they both were nosy busybodies. Glad CH learned what he did from EJ about EH.

 

Same GJ going to CH not for the contract but also checking out his competition. I mean it must have been interesting that EH didn’t push strongly for CH company nor did she tell him. I liked EH told him to stop this behavior.

 

Ooh the EX of GJ glad EH stood up and said I an no longer in this with you both. Bravo! Also EH telling GJ I waited and worked late one week for you. Wow GJ expected her to contact him after that last weird call ( knowing he took time off and the call was interrupted and she got called by the ex def a no no).

 

Sad maknae JW was more upset hearing that Youngsik got to play with dad catch and soccer but he never had the chance not even once. Aww.

 

CH telling JW to not interfere again with him and EH. He really does care and appreciates but wants still be in EH life too.

 

The cute looks between EH and CH awww. The scene in the park & the bad unnatural poses by EH lol. Cute! CH reporting to EH his dinner plans with EJ then saying he will call her afterwards . Aww communication people, they have it down. Right now other dramas the OTP lacking this aspect killing me now.

 

Mom saying fruit seller hubby is nice, but learning he was strict and hit the kids. Hearing the wife’s envy of SS being only sweet to the kids, aww.

 

Just intense two episodes but loving this drama, EH out of that toxic love triangle , EJ moving forward , Will EH continue to move forward to CH? Loving this drama and enjoying the ride.

@Nodame ❤️
Love your bullet points...

 

Didn't like the part where VP was remarking that he and EH used to correspond with each other for a year. He is trying to create insecurity in CH. It didn’t help that EH didn’t  disclose the truth. Well, all is fair in love and war...

 

Simply adored the way, CH was looking at EH at the pub while relating to what EJ had mentioned earlier about EH. I just hope CH gently nudges EH to look at him only and gives her no room to create fake excuses to get out of her comfort zone. But did he not really realize his feelings for her all these years? Was it just a wishful thinking? Did he really think EJ had written that letter?
 

Honestly, want the parents to make up. Yes, they have both made a lot of mistakes, but they truly did love each other(thus the jealousy and resentment) and raised their children well (in their capacity). Main issues stemmed from insecurity which caused various problems in their life. But maybe, now they have learnt from it and they should be given a second chance. Who knows, maybe love will actually bloom this time and we can see both parent’s genuinely smiling. 
 

The drama does showcase that parents are not perfect and children are their worst critics. Parents do the best they can and maybe children should realize that memories are just like looking through a kaleidoscope. Everyone views things differently.Maybe as a family what we can do is to create a personal safe because the real world is only too happy to point out your flaws.

I saw an interesting comment online saying that maybe Eun Joo and that "outside" brother Young Sik will get together, especially because of that scene where the kid goes to Eun Joo and hugs her by her leg.

 

The scene felt to me like they laid it on too thick, but based on this online commenter's theory, I see possibilities. I wanted a guy for Eun Joo, and now the writers do not have to insert a new character into the storyline. He already existed all along! lol! Either way, I think Eun Joo and that "grandchild" have a future together.

 

This is one of those rare dramas whose midsection has not started to sag. Every episode is still amazing and fresh and I am crossing my fingers that it remains the same to the end.

 

Also, if I am not wrong, this drama not have an OST until the end of episode 10. It was all background mood music till then. The story is that good!

Episode 9 had the cliffhangers of the story, now we get from episode 10 the resolving, bit by bit. 

 

 

Eun hee and Chang Hyeok are it the moment when they will start their relationship. Both we`ll see each other as a romantic partner and not only as a friend. There were many moments that brought them closer to that moment and one of them was when Eun joo told Chang hyeok that her sister liked him and when she likes somebody she draws line because she thinks she can`t get him anyway. Maybe he realised that Eun hee`s behavior towards him was because of that. She drew a line between them, to see him only as a friend and sometime it was too obvious. That`s when I said that she was acting too childish in front of Chan Hyeok, when she dissumulated her feelings. I felt an overacting friendship behaviour. I don`t find the right English word for that right now. It became a little annoying for me. Sorry. :D I hope it is over.

I like how the writer linked the story with the old memory of Eun hee`s realization that she saw Chan Hyeok as a man in the past and the present with the same Stonewall Walkway, where Chan Hyeok will give her a signal that he wants to start their romantic relationship. There is plenty of time to see their new dynamic now that both are aware of their feelings for each other.

 

I don`t know if I was happy that I was right that Sang sik had the other family because of an accident. He made an accident and he hit Sang sik (hitting him was my second scenario because he was limping) and he thought he was his responsability of take care of the other family. Well, I was not happy at all. I was glad when Eun joo told him her opinion, gave him some true words. I wanted to applaud.

It was obvious to me that the writer deliberately wanted to make us believe he had another family, as even Jin sook thought that. From his behavious I knew he is not a man who is looking at other women and I wanted to know for sure the explanation for the other family.

Eun joo was right. he should have told his wife because they were married and they should have found together a solution. Because of that, Jin Sook thought for so many times that he was cheating. Of course, she should have confronted him but, at least, I understand why she kept her silence. The writer wants to troll us. First, it is the name of the young man. Sang Sik, Young Sik. What a coincidence. We know that Koreans gave their child similar name sometime. Young Sik called him father. There was a young women`s voice who heard Jin sook that day. If there wasn`t a mother (just an old granmother), why Sang Sik did not talk to his wife and decide to take him in the family? I am sure Jin Sook would have raised him too. It was hard for them as they had two daughters already but, at least, it was a better option.  I understood Ji Woo`s reaction too. As Eun Joo said, he did not witnessed the good times between his parents and he needs time to process all things.

 

All these misunderstanding cause a family to estrange little by little. Learned lesson: don`t keep inside what bothers you, comunicate more and be more assertive, don`t be frightened to say what you believe or about what you want. 

The wife thought he was having an affair and stop being a woman to him. The husband, thought that she doesn`t love him anymore, she dreams for another life with someone better than him and stopped being a man to her wife. Now we will find out that Eun Joo`s father was not at her wedding and all it was his imagination and supposition.:sweatingbullets: It is sad actually.

I look forward to Jin Sook and Sang Sik`s scene next week. I hope they say to each other what they wanted to say all these years. If they will build another relationship, let it be an honest one.

 

Finally, my thought for Eun joo. She had some serious events in her life lately.  She is still hurt but she willl heal emotionally in time.

I was glad that now she has Eun Hee at her side. I am glad that she called Chan Hyeok for a drink. She promised that she will call if he will want t friend talk. The scene was important to Chan Hyeok and Eun hee`s story  but it was good for her too. We found out that she had friends and even if she did not kept in touch all those years (after they left for London) they are still thinking of her. She realised that she was too closed up emotionally to everyone and that she needs help of a friend or to say out loud when it is hard for her. 

When Young sik`s kid went to her was an emotional moment for her. We saw that she reminded her at her own baby. Her child must have been the same age (like 5 years) if she did not have the miscarriage. It was time to her to voice her loss. She never alowed herself to mourn. She looked fine but she never healed from that tragedy in her life.

The scene felt to me like they laid it on too thick, but based on this online commenter's theory, I see possibilities. I wanted a guy for Eun Joo, and now the writers do not have to insert a new character into the storyline. He already existed all along! 

 

The thought that Eun Joo and Young Shik getting together is  a No-NO for me. I am not looking down on him but, the truth is, he is way out of her league. Sure, the kid could be a link but other than that, she doesn`t suit with him at all. They have ZERO chance and frankly, I hope the writer will make it realistic. Why people fall in love? Beside the sexual attraction,  similarity of people’s beliefs, personality traits, being in the same circles (spending time together, knowing eack other), social influences count when two people fall in love. I want her an equal partnership for her. I can`t imagine how Sang sik , who has an inferior complex, will be confident enough to persude her. I really don`t think it is going to happen. But I hope Young sik will became an extented family member.

 

I am really sorry that Tae-Hyeong is not the guys for her. He cares a lot of her and, beside his sexual orientation, he matched well with her. Because I don`t see how they continue the marriage after the new revelations, for  Eun Joo, I want to find someone new, who is her equal, who will love her the way she is, who will make her open more , be confortable and be happy. And maybe they will have a child as well. If not (it is not easy to find the right man in real life) she could be by herself, adopt if that is what she wants, rekindle the contact with her friends and family, continuing her career.

 

I will read everyone thoughts a little later.

You're right. She needs someone of her level.

 

I have never wanted a knight in shining armour for a character so badly in my life than I want for Eun Joo!!:huh: Writernim!! Help!! I'm past the age of caring about fairy tale characters but this is an exception. If she doesn't get a good romantic interest, I hope someone can write a steamy fanfic of a very pregnant Eun Joo and said Knight.:P

 

I also loved how Eun Joo RIPPED into her father!! That scene was satisfying AH!! She only said the truth. Daddy decided to dump on them and expects them to accept and move on after such a secret. Very unfair and inconsiderate of him. But his entire life is a bunch of inconsiderate decisions.
