I like MJ. MJ and JW, two  thinking women. MJ was funny when she was still married. Her clothes were the fifties type and she said to JW that she had style.
 

I am glad they are giving her a love life. But there are more than 60 episodes left, they might change her character, & if they constantly have SA plotting against BCW, that would be a drag.


edit: 

her look is not 'with sadness' to me. More like what can I do to break them up.

 

Oops, I seem to be quoting you today!

 

I remember that JH dad's once said to the mum that she tricked him into marriage.  She gave him a guilty look.  I am waiting to find out why\how they got together in the end when it is obvious that the one he loved was SJ. 

 

But JD's parents could get back together.  When he was James reliving his past memories of being beaten by debt collectors, his first thought was whether his wife and son were safe.  So anger and resentment is the top layer.  Need to see what is beneath that.

 

But I wouldn't mind if he got back together with SJ. She obviously brings out the best in him.  And she still thinks of him.  Waiting to see the reason they got married  before I decide who to ship!

To be quite honest, I did not think I have the patience to stick with this up until the latest episode. Jin Ki Joo made it works I guess.    As much as I am frustrated with Seo Ah, can I jus

I came to this thread to see what other soompiers were thinking and I agree 100% with you. That kidnapper, no matter what the reason is, knows exactly what she has done and who the real mother is and

In the middle of 12, and are they bromancing Koala and Na Ro? Loved the all black cool.

I didn't catch this part. Maybe she seduced him and got pregnant.  It seemed that MJ was always popping up when he wanted to be with SJ.

 

I think MJ is funny but when it's time to move on, do it. There would be lingering feelings for her husband and he her, but they are old enough and 30 years is a long time to try and make a marriage work. Enough.

As we wait for the weekend and new episodes this was released for ep 25-26 some select scenes from last weekend

 

 

Called best/great scene

 

 

Spoilers some scenes clips ep 26 

Spoiler

 

 

Thanks all for keeping this forum alive with comments/thoughts etc.

 

Last weekend ok.

 

- BCW dad tries to get closer to his daughter and is def impressing Koala. OMG the set up to do the hand drip coffee at a construction site? How impractical that can be but very impactful

 

-James (JH dad) actually asking his staff why they fear him? (Really he is that clueless? He is learning to cook using the rice cooker, cannot blame MJ almost falling off her rocker when she heard. (But heck he has to eat and if he is that STINGY hiring a cook is not for him. He HAS to cook.

 

-I like that MJ has a potential suitor in JH professor mentor/sunbae. Even if NOTHING comes out of it , I am glad she can feel like a woman and ALIVE again. I am ok if she moves forward and doesn't get back with James (JH dad). 

 

-Same with James (JH dad) to be with SJ. I am ok if something happens. But for JH that would not be good but awkward. Though SJ is not BCW birth mom, if they got together and his dad with her, it would be AWKWARD. But that is not the goal of the drama more about everyone in it.

 

-HD is def doing well as fit MODEL for SA brother doing a fashion mall online. They are SO playing the love line card with these two. Cute how she said she cannot take his offer as she is going away and him asking her to do it while she is still around. We know now she knows the truth about Paris and her selection, will she REALLY leave? No not to be in another country to do the same tasks and PLUS she doesn't speak French (even harder to pull off due to the language barrier. )I don't see her trying to learn some French to prepare.

 

-RH with the university gal was expected. They had their twists and turns and initially would not have expected her to be so understanding he was not a university student. He does have a good heart for a handsome young man.

 

-Dr Auntie and Uncle are so cute and when they bumped into RH on his date was hilarious when he was there with Dr's Auntie's roomie.  So awkward but cute. When will they TELL everyone? I mean alot of the them know of their romance it is matter of time SJ knows (or does she know already?)

 

-Learning of CEO JW depression after SY and then SJ was asking by her mom to care for SY. It all comes together as we are getting piece meal what really went on.

 

James wanting to help SJ and confronting JW  harsh mom. OMG.

 

-NR helping SA and trying to be with her as his back up plan. Gosh his fake and not strong denials he did not upload the info to the work intranet about BCW as CEO JW birth daughter from wedlock. How scandalous. 

 

Glad SJ was growing a pair for JW's mom to come see her realizing and grudgingly acknowledging she has finally grown a pair when dealing with her.

 

Our cute OTP Koala and Moong are too cute. Glad they have each other and how SJ is happy that CW has him to rely on and help her. Awwww.

 

-RH finally coming clean to mom who already knew. ONE big burden lifted for him.

My first impression on this drama is that I literally scoffed and laughed at this drama’s attempt to make me feel sorry for Seola. Really, drama? She’s an arrogant elitist and bully, and I don’t feel sorry for her one bit for getting a karma pie plastered on her face. No amount of some cheesy piano sad music can make me feel sorry for her.
 

Dear writer-nim, if you want to make a character that the audience can feel sorry for, make SA a good person. Make her BCW’s best friend or sth for a long time, but still having her insecurities, so when JH asked BCW out, and she accepted his feelings, it really felt like a betrayal. On the other side when BCW was revealed to be SY, and also “stole” JW’s affections, it would actually make us feel sorry because BCW never intended to take the things that SA cherished so much. Plus it can add more time to the pacing since I feel like the revelation that BCW is SY is wayyyy too early, i feel like at this rate they’re just gonna add some pointless drama after drama with the tyrant grandmother, SA, and NR all the way until the ending.

to develop more of the plot: The relationship between real sisters, recover the relationship between mom Bio (must call her mom), discover the dad and all his misdeeds, The secret of the bear (definitely contains a key), the recovery of NR as a member of the family of the house (it may be that he gets seriously hurt), know how JH's parents got married, become an official couple the uncles , RH goes to college.

I felt the revelation was too early.

 Then there are too many storylines, too many people. The brother and girl story is not interesting. I thought that she was a spoilt rich girl, intent on chasing the guy. 
 

I thought JH and BCW made a sweet couple but another forum said they were like friends, no chemistry. If that means no kissy stuff, I am fine for now.  They are getting to know each other.

 

Somehow at the end, we will most likely see a sister act  SA and BCW. I am not sure if I could forget SA's antics. NR was from an orphanage if I remember correctly. So S Villa will probably take him in as family.

HI All.

 

Interesting this is my second weekend drama to follow in real time after ONCE AGAIN.

I like the two OTP characters. the FL is so cute and the actress has a beautiful EYE SMILE indeed that is so bright and gorgeous it lights up her face.

 

-Love line HD and SA brother (we saw a mile away) we are not seeing it yet for those two. But we know all SIGNS lead to them being together. She will get her CHAEBOL connection not her real parent but via her boyfriend. He likes her company but loves her skills. Interesting he was not liking her outfit suggestion for the gal going to the alumnae reunion event. HD was going for sexy and devil may care. No FEMININE good goody outfit. LOL. But even the bro had to admit the outfit looked good.

 

FINALLY the whole household knows the truth about RH not going to University. YES no more needing to drag it out (more than halfway over with this drama)

 

SJ knows now that JH dad has his memory back. She also knows how thoughtful JH was not telling her and she was not mad as she realized he wanted to be comfortable and awkward returning to visit their place without having to be change. As we can see even James/ JH dad realizes as well as everyone else he is two different personas one at work and one there as James. EVen JH was flabbergasted to learn that the old personality was his dad all along but he had to submerge /suppress that side of him. I mean he had loan sharks after him when he was younger.

 

MJ getting a suitor in her son's sunbae/mentor is awesome.  I don't want JH's folks to get back together. I like they are apart and I hope she gets better. Also having a handsome interested younger man doesn't hurt. Also she was hurt that her hubby forget that stuffed animal was a present from him for FREE on her bday (he did not pay for the coin) in the claw machine. Awww sad for her. He cares but he is just trying to wrestle with himself as well.

 

Glad that JH and JH dad are in on CEO JW mom harassing SJ and then at the end of ep 28 seeing SJ, CW at the house with JW to talk to JW's mom.

 

SA is a hot freaking mess and I have no sympathy. Her constant shrieking JH was stolen from her, JW her mom is stolen from her etc etc blah blah. Knowing that NR is not good for her and using him to get JH concerned (but not even a a woman) but as a concerned big bro. His parents knew the score and I was glad the dad said it to her grandmother by marriage JW's mom.  I mean MJ tolerated SA but she saw through her tricks too. Did she really love JH? More she loved the idea of him and he is handsome and happens to be her oppa's BFF? Hello to stick yourself to a man who constantly tells you time and time again no, have some self respect.

 

Dr Auntie making Uncle sad and realizing what she DID. Good. She still did it after wanting to change it to tell her sis. And then her realizing NR she met in the prison facility (It was a matter of time). NR being sharp knew something amiss. Him helping SA to unhinge JH and make him jealous. NR not telling JH and CW that her birth dad is amongst their midst. 

 

It was obvious that the dad would change the pic of himself to someone else. His annoying laugh when he asks to meet up with JW and act like nothing happened to reclaim attention to CEO JW. Really now?

 

Looking forward to next week for this drama.

I agree, it would boost her self confidence even if it does not have a happy ending. She has been abused psychologically even if James is his real self and not the uncaring miserable Scrooge who is feared and avoided by his employees. She could not even eat macaroons. The writer makes James into a sweet old man that we forget his alter ego is nasty to son, wife and workers.

MJ was an indulged much younger sister, SJ treated her like a daughter, and she is still behaving like a big sister to the three kids. Good to see that she could see through  NR. Speaking of him and the unpleasant SA, I hope their conniving will backfire and the directors like CW enough to promote her to be a manager.

 

I have a soft spot for Mr.Park. He is so proud of his daughter.

The preview shows a nice change. SJ is the stronger one.

 

After accepting with difficulty that JW is her mother, BCW is now made unwanted and needs to be hidden from the company BOD.

 

I wonder if personal behaviour is that important in corporate Korea. There was the case of the KAL founder's family who berated a flight attendant over a packet of peanuts. Apparently, after making a big show of remorse and several announcements on her resignation, when the dust settled, she was back where she started or maybe even promoted now.

 

But it makes for many kdrama storylines, so it's a myth perhaps.

Yes, she got pregnant, so he had to marry her.

 

Doesn't justify the way he treated her throughout the marriage, but I'm glad he's finally feeling bad about it.

 

And it is so hilarious to me how he has to wear that sweatshirt and continue to work at the jokbal restaurant in order to keep in touch with the James-side of his personality. And how Hwak-Sae calls him "Ims Hyeong" because "James" is too hard to say? :lol:

 

I'm glad the secret of how Bit-Chae-Woon ended up being raised by Soon-Jeong is revealed. What a relief. It was just the craziest secret, and I can't believe Evil Grandma actually expected Soon-Jeong to be quiet about it forever. Ridiculous.

 

I know that Naro is naughty and so is Pil-Hong, but the person who annoys me the most is Seo-A. She just has NO reason to be such a brat all the time. If she just kept her mouth shut and lived her life, she would be fine. And she gains nothing by being a whiny brat. But... haha, why am I expecting logic?

 

Anyway, it's a fun show. The Big Birth Secret was really ridiculous, but at least it's out in the open and people are dealing with it instead of being revealed in the penultimate episode.

It’s pretty obvious they’re setting up NR to be accepted by the villa residents at the end of the drama, but I just hope they don’t overdo his evil schemes, it will make it harder and more dumb when everyone forgives him and accepts him, unless he serves time, and goes back out as a fully redeemed man. OR he backs out of whatever schemes later on out of regret and guilt.

 

SA on the other hand... ho boy. @chickfactor said it best. SA is an entitled, selfish, pampered, privileged brat who had everything, and she was a RickRoll'D brat towards BCW for no reason. Now she had the karma card played on her she throws a tantrum like a brat, whining everything was stolen from her by BCW. Well, listen kid, not her fault the man you like likes this girl with an actual positive personality and actually likeable and a decent person, unlike the elitist, bully RickRoll'D person that you are

“Mr. Queen” And “Homemade Love Story” Both Achieve Their Highest Ratings Yet

 

Both “Mr. Queen” and “Homemade Love Story” soared to new heights last night!

 

On December 27, tvN’s new hit “Mr. Queen” broke its own personal ratings record once again. The historical fantasy-comedy drama, which has been raking in more and more viewers with each new episode, scored an average nationwide rating of 11.8 percent, marking a new all-time high for the series.

 

Meanwhile, KBS 2TV’s “Homemade Love Story” also achieved its highest viewership ratings to date. According to Nielsen Korea, the latest episode of the popular drama scored average nationwide ratings of 31.2 percent and 33.2 percent for its two parts.

 

Congratulations to the cast and crew of both dramas!

absolutely not. He seemed miserable to his workers too. Who knows we will get a story later during the whitewashing time. Its quite clever making him amnesiac because otherwise such a sudden change of behaviour without a memory loss is hard to swallow.  I still feel though he should get back with SJ and MJ finds another life, with or without a man. Too much water under the bridge between him and MJ. They seem better being good friends.

 

NR is posed as a conniving, manipulative person but with a wistful longing for parents. That will most likely be wrung and squeezed to make sure viewers accept him.  I don't think I could get over him being a sly ferret. I like penguins.

It always takes me a bit to let go of a previous weekend family drama and get into the new family - but I liked the villa family from the start and was looking forward to their story - so, I am sorry, that, like daily melos, they are letting the jealous brat SA take over the plot....

There is such a contradiction about loving non-blood-families and 'evil' non-blood-children...a theme daily melos often use..it is disturbing and not very good drama...

Why does CW need to be hidden again? It would make for better and more interesting drama to have her out in the open...

I would like to know more about CEO bio-mom's relationship to CW's bio dad and SA's dad...

We are also missing out on more of SJ's life and why she adopted the others

I am enjoying the transformation of JH's abusive father who is finally getting in touch with his emotions- though his old behavior should not be seen as acceptable anywhere, it is still considered normal 'guy' behavior, sadly...I love MJ and can understand if they try to work things out ..though JH's colleague was mighty cute

 

NR will probably be related to one of the kids, like in other dramas and that will 'cure' him

 

I hope they will let CW and JH stay together and face the problems together,  the infuriating 'breakup/sacrifice' crud is so boringly overdone and shows Koreans as having no relationship stamina...

 

Another underlining prejudice in this drama is, although they show women in business at the helm, they make them either evil or stupid...but the world would be much better off with many more women - and there are plenty of talented, good women- at the helm in every industry

Love your post :)

 

I am looking forward to seeing SA's brother grow up and become a man.  Now he is like a silly child, hiding from Mummy!  He told SA that Koala and her were never an item.  She got angry so then he called Koala to warn him not to upset his sister.  Don't like him.  He has no mind of his own and clearly no backbone ... YET!

 

Not sure how 'James' and MH ended up married to each other.  James said MH tricked him into marriage.  I didn't like the way she was treated but I don't feel that much pity for her.  If she really did something to force the marriage, karma paid her back 10x and counting.  But it's not just her.  Poor James and SJ  suffered too.  James cares for MH but clearly the one he loved and still holds in his heart is SJ.   I feel bad for MH.  But every time I see poor SJ and yes, the nasty side of James, I think MH got what she deserved.  She created that unhappiness for herself.  

 

There's also a lesson in here for the neurotic SA.  You can try to take what isn't yours but you won't be happy.  if it isn't yours, nothing you do will ever make it yours.  

 

I don't think JH was jealous that NR was with SA.  Think it was more concern on his part.  He thinks of SA as a little sister and he knows that NR is not a good person.  Hence his concern that SA keeps NR so close to her.  that is also CW's concern. 

 

So the writer will put SA and NR together.  two negatives to cancel each other out?  :)

I'd like to think everyone deserves a second chance, but it does not have to be bubbly HD or baby RH. He deserves SA, a devious heart and mind to heal together.

 

Korean culture seems very focused on forgiveness. Not being forgiven is almost a curse - anyway as in Kdramas.  I see even the grandmother being forgiven at the end. This is a feel good show, but I like all the fluff and light scenes. Secrets are revealed after a few episodes.
