Re: K-Drama: 지성이면 감천 (A Tale of Two Sisters / Sincerity is the Way of Heaven)


I do I do! That was all young man with the cougar. =) I missed the first episode but so far the storyline seems to be moving slowly for me, I think because it's just starting out and everyone is being introduced etc but it's interesting.

Yay! We get Park Se Young for this drama! emoticon Woot Woot.

Re:


I can tell that Yerin & her mother are not going to be on my favorites list any time soon...they are both prima donna, stuck-up snobs & Yerin is, frankly, quite unattractive...Seyeong is SOOO much more attractive & hope she ends up with Jaeseong in the end!! Also, like that Seyeong is not a "pushover" & doesn't look like she'll take crap from anybody!!

Must admit...a bit shocked that a Korean drama is featuring a "porn actress" character...never thought I would see it...but find it refreshing, to be honest!

Big surprise to me, too. LOL Frankly, I'm finding Jang Mi-Hwa to be the most interesting character so far. She may not be the nicest of people, but at least she is "new," way outside the usual formula for Daily characters.

I'm another one who doesn't see the allure of Yerin. Unattractive skin and bones body and a too thin, pinched face. Yerin would probably be much prettier if she looked more healthy. Then to combine this look with an unpleasant, bad-natured personality and it equals a character I personally can't find much interest in.

The pairing (rather "clashing") between Seungsu the self-absorbed director and Ilyoung the head writer will become better as the story unfolds. They are both strong actors and actually can play against the other quite well.

There are still a lot of loose ends for me. I've missed as much as I've seen of the episodes and I'm unable to watch unedited versions on the net, so I'll just have to wait and see who came from where, etc.

I'm not finding it very interesting so far, but then this type of daily can become a really interesting one as time goes by. Another possibility is that the KXLA version, with its additional cuts of several minutes has left the episodes so hacked up that the viewer can no longer make sense of it. Too much important detail never being seen now.

Also as shocked about the porn actress. I was surprised the first time they mentioned what she was.

nchristi, for some reason I'm finding this drama to be quite boring as well. I'll usually get into it after the first week but I haven't even bothered watching the recordings of this one since Monday of this week (Episode 6?). There's just way too much going on for me and lots of characters in this drama. emoticon

I think what's happening is that the writers are trying to make story lines for everyone so we get to know them but having so many lines kind of makes chaos and we don't get the main plot.

We'll see how this plays out and hopefully it gets better. emoticon

Re:


Have to agree about the actress playing Yerin. There are many actors that could be more convincing in the role and Seyeong rival,although I do like Park Se Young. Still waiting to find out the details of Seyeong`s adoption.

Re:


     Ouch what happened to the scene between the two mothers sparing over who spilled the beans about Yerin being adopted. In the preview it looked to be a great little cat-fight, but it was missing in both Wednesday's and Thursday's nights episodes.

Re:


There wasn`t a fight, but a discussion about Yerin being adopted after her stepmother couldn`t find Seyeong,and wanted people to assume Yerin was her daughter from birth. The whole story of how Seyeong was lost and later adopted by another family has still not been told.Jaesung`s Mom said she hadn`t even told her son or FIL about the adoption.

Re:


I have seen a lot of shows in Korea where adults return from other countries looking for their families. These are people who had been adopted to foreign countries. In 'most' cases, the child was 'lost' while out playing or something, usually from a little village. How in the world can a child be lost like that? Wouldn't everyone for miles around know who the kid is? Very strange.

Yerin is going to be a thorn in Seyong's life! Yerin may end up with the guy who she grew up with in the orphanage. He's in love with her and will stick by her side no matter how nasty she acts.

Lex... You were probably right to bail on Mr Kim. That was kinda a stupid drama. And I already don't like Yerin or her bio mom either!

Re:


Actually, none of the young leads in this show are attractive or interesting especially the two sisters who really are not sisters so the title is somewhat misleading.
