Re:


It is really surprising that these minor crimes do not get any punishment. she is not even charged with any of her wrong doings. It surprises me because I have been watching the early Joseon historicals and people would have their heads chopped off for looking suspicious without doing anything. Yjerk is the mad king at that one time and he killed people left right and centre for just getting in his way. I still think Korean emotions are very near the surface and ready to spill over at any chance. It doesn't matter if it is rage or sadness or a soft heart, there will be immediate actions. It isn't so surprising that there are two Koreas because there has been such a turmoil throughout the Korean history.
I think one thing is probably certain in this drama, Yjerk will meet his comeuppance one way or another.

Re:


One episode to go... tonight. This has been a really good watch and I really enjoyed it. I hate to see it end.

So, looks like Marie was killed trying to protect that jerk. At least she wanted to turn themselves in and start a new life.

I'm glad Charles invested in AT before finding out Jaryong was his son. Jaryong was able to prove himself to everyone. He is very much capable of leading a large company. He does it by being honest and putting the employees first. He is more like Gonju's father was.

I can't see that Gija or Yjerk has taken any responsibility for their actions. Both still assume Jerk did just what he had to do to get ahead in this world. Gija doesn't want anything to happen to her precious son but it was OK for her and him to destroy Jinju, Ms Snob, backstab Jaryong, lie, cheat, steal and bring the company down. All that and she's still crying about 'What did he do so wrong?" How can you get through to people like this?

Re:


In all my long years I don't think I ever met a woman like Gigu. She is totally invested in herself and her son and quite irresponsible. I think the way she has doted on him has made him almost a sociopath. He feels he is right whatever action he takes. Now he may be realizing that he does not have things in the right perspective.
I cannot guess what will happen to her and Sol. I can see Yjerk will end up in jail. Or at least that is what should happen.
Teacher's daughter has been a missing link hasn't she. I guess she had no input to the story. She should be about ten or twelve I am guessing and in school.

I am glad things wokred out so well for Jaryong. He is a nice character and a lovely actor as well.

Re:


Agree w/you Brad! Gija is really to blame for raising such a self serving rotten brat, just like his mother!

Cafe Man's daughter was staying in the U.S. with his parents, I think. I know he had mentioned it previously. She was probably afraid to even come back at the end because she had memories of how horrible Ms Snob treated her daddy, in front of her!

Anyway, loved this drama. Yjerk should get an award for an amazing role. I can't remember enjoying hating some one so much before.

Wish they had used a couple more minutes showing how Jinju ended up going to America. I always was rooting for them to get together. They should have given it just a little more air time. At least they ended up together... AND pregnant to boot! Loved that!

Sangshil was very kind to an undeserving Gija. But I think she did it more for Giyong than anything. Giyong... I really had to pity that girl. She lived with a family who her sister and nephew almost destroyed. She couldn't express her affection and concern for her sister and nephew so she had to sit quietly most of the time, in a lot of pain.

So it looked like maybe Cafe Man would be the one to lead AT Group after all. Jaryong will most likely take over his own father's business, Glory King.

And Gonju pregnant with twins!!

Good drama

Re:


I liked the ending episode. I was afraid they would go all soft and mushy with Yjerk and his mother. they really had to deal with him as a criminal so I was glad they sent him to jail. He certainly was a changed man after he lost Marie.

It was a happy family reunion at the end but I am not sure the house big enough for them to all live together was such a good idea. At least Mrs. Snob stayed put in her own house. I liked the future that was ahead for Jaryong. He deserved to do well.
Even tho I would have liked several more episodes, it was just the right length for this drama don't you think. Any more would have been superfluous.

Re:


I figured out how the living arrangements should go: Jaryong, Gonju and the twins should live with Charles, right next door to Jaryong's other parents, grandma, Jaeryong and Giyoung. Jinju and Cafe Man and their child should live w/Ms Snob. Cafe Man will take over as CEO of AT Group and he'll have his MIL right beside him to help.

Jaryong will be going on business trips w/Charles so best to just live together and if they are next door to Jaryong's other parents then they can all help out with Gonju's twins.

I liked how everything ended. DIdn't agree w/Yjerk only serving 2 years. I think he and Gija are too selfish to ever really change. There's a victim out there, just waiting for Yjerk and Gija to latch on to them.

Re:


I thought this was one of the better dailies and one with a satisfying ending. I am most happy that Jinju got to be with Cafe Man. I also like to think that Marie's death hit Yongjerk very, very hard and that he will turn a new leaf for little Sol's sake, as long as he can keep away from Gija's whiny influence.

I just discovered probably one of the most amazing changes in appearance in acting roles--regarding Charles Wang, the trim, perfectly dressed CEO. For those of you who watched Twinkle, Twinkle a while back, he played the poor family's father--the gambling, drinking, always in trouble father who, granted, loved his family but who was so ineffective as a father. It is so hard to believe they are the same person.
  He is also in the new weekend afternoon drama, I Summon You, Gold, along with Jaryong's other father and a host of other veteran actors.

Re:


He's also playing in the new one that took Cheer Up Mr Kim's place.... The sister one. I call it Twisted Sista... He must be a very busy actor.

Love you Kittypaws but.... gotta disagree. Yjerk will never change. And as far as Gija's influence, well, she'll be living w/him until the day she dies so I stand by my belief that they are already on the look out for someone to scam.

Re:


Nsheldon, the only thing is, we'll never know, will we? But I'll concede on one thing--maybe his character won't change but I do believe losing Marie hit him hard if only because she always bolstered his ego. And he often looked on her with more affection in his eyes than he ever did with Jinju. . .who, of course, was a lucky winner in this drama.

Re: new series


Oh yeah! Twister Sista!!! That is great!

I am watching and liking this one even more than Mr. Kim. The porn queen for a mom is the best character in a drama to-date, especially for such a stuck-up/stuck-on-herself character as the announcer girl. I don't think she is pretty, and hate her hairstyle. Oh well, let's go another 100+ episodes with a failing liver and two lost children for two birth secrets, one love triangle, two scheming women, and a partridge in a pear tree.
