Re:


Thanks for posting this, nchristi...must be honest & say that I don't know what to expect from this drama, as it replaces my favorite drama of the year, but I will try to keep an open mind.

The thing that strikes me...and I don't mean to sound too picky or superficial...but Choi Yoon Young, who plays the primary "heroine", Han Yoo Jung, doesn't strike me as the "typical" K-drama beauty! Frankly, she looks rather unattractive for such a role & not sure how that will play out in the drama's plot.

But I will hold any preconceived notions to myself & see how it works out, on-screen!!

Re:


This drama got my interest...and just hope it will hold my interest as it continue emoticon. The cast seems to be strong, especially the veteran actors. I have yet to decide on the young one. My bias is Yoorim only b/c she's my fav in Girl Generation and is studying acting as part of her major. She has a minor role instead of a major role, something to put on the resume emoticon.

Re:


I'm with you funniegirl, it got my interest but the jury is still out on whether it will keep me hooked. Yes, the cast is strong but I have to say, the lead girl is not is a bit weak. I felt the same way about her in Seoyoung my Daugther.

Re:


I missed last night episode. What happened with the accident? I started with Moo (can't remember the rest of his name) coming back from New Zealand. How did Moo react with the accident? I know rember the younger sister. I didn't recognized her as the sister that went after LBY's brother in "my daughter seoyoung".

Another question, what happened to the mom? She wasn't in the car with them.

Re:


What an evil, sleazebag SOB that Moon-do is...his only saving grace is that he knows he's a total jerk! REALLY hope he ends up penniless & rots in jail emoticon

Thought Yoo-rim's death would destroy Moo-yeol but he's survived nicely. Wondering something...how do Moo-yeol's mom & Nan-cho recognize each other after 10 years, as well as Moo-yeol & Soo-hyeok but Yoo-jung & Moo-yeol didn't, at all? emoticon

I know they talked on the phone, after Yoo-rim found out that Moo-yeol was still in high school & Yoo-jung told Moo-yeol off, but didn't they ever meet?

Yoo-jung must be really tough...to survive & thrive, after losing her whole family emoticon

LOVE that Moo-yeol & his uncle beat Moon-do & Soo-hyeok to the purchase of the Chowon farm! Think Nan-cho, Moon-do's new wife, is going to become a major pain in Moo-yeol & his family's life.

Can't wait to see the reaction on Moo-yeol's face, when he founds out that his own dad was directly responsible for his love's death...and Yoo-jung, who saw his face running away from the scene! I hope they both get their revenge in the end.

Re: K-Drama: Madly in Love


I don't think Moo-yeul and Yoo-Jung ever met. All they did were talking on the phone that one time. The only thing that would connect the two is that snow globe that Moo-yeul gave to Yoorim. I wonder if that will be the last big puzzle to put the history together.

It's quite entertaining but have to admit, I watch with my mute button ready to be pressed.

Re:


Didn't know that Moon-do had a sister...and what a character she seems to be emoticon Think that Nan-cho has a rival that might out-witch her emoticon

Glad to see Moo-yeol & Yoo-jung's "relationship" start...not feeling Yoo-jung with Soo-hyeok!

Re:


I find the mature couples relationship story more fascinating than the youngsters so far.
 The 2nd. wife lives on hysteria-there's never a calm moment with her. The husband & son must have tuned out her incessant level of high drama. They don't seem to show much reaction,although they get angry & annoyed.

   She almost makes you forget how horrible the husband is,& all the evil things he's done past & present...with no guilt whatsoever.

Agree...much as I can't stand Moon-do, for the heinous act he did on Yoo-jung's family, there's no question that the 2nd wife is turning into the main villain of the drama.

So, I guess that Yoo-jung & Moo-yeol will not be together for a while...really don't want to see her with Soo-hyeok emoticon ...but can't wait to see the reactions, when Yoo-jung & her mom realize that Moon-do was directly responsible for the death of Yoo-rim & the father! Not to mention, when Yoo-jung learns that Moo-yeol's life-long love was her sister & how it affects their future relationship, if at all emoticon

Re:


Both men in her life -are half brothers,whose Father killed her family-her sister's love story with Moo-yeol .. now that's really pushing the imagination.

   Oh- I forgot- the brothers are not related after all..how about that can of worms? When,& in what manner will that be revealed,& play itself out?
   I can't see how this all can be reasoned out to allow any relationships between any of them.
   Wow,when Moon-do said he stole his wife's family's money,& stabbed her in the back--he didn't even grimace.
   Grandma ,really has no restraint,either,yelling & insulting everyone. It brings to mind,her husband was quite a cruel manipulator in business.

Re:


Moon-do is really scary...showing no emotion or conscience, when talking to Yoo-jung's mother about Director Han & then saying how he must get rid of Yoo-jung! emoticon Wonder how he's going to handle her reinvestigation request into her husband's car accident? emoticon

Moo-yeol takes Yoo-jung to his grandfather's grave, to introduce her & she takes him to her dad & sister's grave, where he realizes that Yoo-jung is Yoo-rim's sister emoticon

Re: K-Drama: Madly in Love


This drama is a good one. I like nearly every drama with Jun Kwang Ryul (Moon-do), one of my very favorite actors. He's always fascinating in whatever role he takes. He particularly makes an excellent unemotional 'bad guy' with an occasional softer side.

Jun Kwang Ryul recently won SBS's 2013 Best Actor Award for his performance in this very drama. I always found it interesting that he graduated from Chukye Art University as a music major (bassoon). For some unknown reason, I find the bassoon and Jun Kwang Ryul a good combination!

Re:


So, Chairman Yang's will still exists & Moon-do now knows about it & will use whatever means to find it & get rid of it? But, just when you want to throw the book at him, he saves Eun-sook & reveals his true feelings for her...and seemed sincere about it. I still want to see him pay for killing Yoo-jung's dad & sister, all the bullying tactics & business crimes he's committed.

Knew it...Soo-hyeok saves Yoo-jung & her mom from a home invader but gets stabbed in the process and comes close to dying. Now, appears that Yoo-jung feels remorse & gratitude and tells Moo-yeol that she can't wait for him to sort out his conscience about Yoo-rim...so, it looks like she's going to became a couple with Soo-hyeok emoticon

Re:


It's been a long time since I commented on this drama. I haven't been able to watch this on a regular basis, so it's hard to comment.

From what I've seen, I think it would definitely be one long hard road for Yoo-jung and Moo-yeol to be together. I mean, now that the cat is out of the bag with Yoo-rim, Yoo-jung, and Moo-yeol's connection, the only thing left to reveal is his dad's involvement on the accident. What I can't wait to see is who will find that information first...Moo-yeol, the Brother, or Yoo-jung or evil Mom. It would be so horrible if the evil Mom find out first. But then, has the news of the Brother is of another Father been officially reveal or is this a speculation? I wonder why Moon-do did the blood test on Moo-yeol but didn't on the Brother. The 2 are the same age, so who did he meet first...Ex-wife or Evil Mom?

Oh until next week emoticon

Re:


According to the DNA that other Brother took, Moon-do is not his Father,also, his Mother admitted it,because the lady from the past told him that he looks just like his Father,who is in prison.
 At first, I thought that was Moon-do,because he was in prison for the corporation's crimes.
That is why he feels justified in taking the company,& that was also promised to him.

Re:


Poor Han Yoo-jung...she looks like the most unhappy new bride ever! Can't stand Soo-hyeok...seems more like an obsession & a means to harm Moo-yeol than true love for Yoo-jung!

Nan-cho is such a fake...can't wait for her & Moon-do to get theirs in the end and, I hope, a lifetime of misery, instead of redemption emoticon

Really like the new girl in Moo-yeol's life...Sae-gyung...and hope they become a couple soon. She's quite a beauty...at least, in my opinion emoticon

Do wonder what happens to Sae-gyung & Moo-yeol if her father invests in Sinsung Dairy? emoticon

Re:


This might sound really nasty but don't care...wish Nan-cho had succeeded in taking her own life! She is such a disgusting, evil witch with no redeeming qualities whatsoever emoticon ...not to mention, she's such a hypocrite towards Yoo-jung, when she was the "original adulterer" between Moon-do & Eun-sook!

Can't wait until Yoo-jung finds out about the secret between Moon-do & Nan-cho...regarding her father & sister's death. Hope she destroys both of them...and leaves Soo-hyeok "hanging in the wind"!

No doubt that Moon-do has major feelings for Eun-sook...but his desire to be rich & destroy all enemies supersedes any of those feelings emoticon He has more of a conscience than Nan-cho...but not by much & his business ethics make him pretty evil, too.

Definitely see something developing between Eun-sook & the barista emoticon

Can't wait to see what happens with Moo-yeol & Yoo-jung locked in that storage area emoticon

Re:


Just don't understand Yoo-jung...she marries a man she doesn't love & has to put up with that PSYCHO of a MIL emoticon

Truthfully, Nan-cho is a total witch but you see that right away...Moon-do is worse because he's a "jackal in sheep's clothing"!

Words can't describe how much misery I want to see Nan-cho & Moon-do suffer at the end of this drama...and ANY sort of redemption will simply be too outlandish & unbelievable!

Re:


I got into K-dramas because of the great storylines & emotional attachment to characters...but I can't remember feeling more pure hate or disgust than I do for Kang Moon-do & Hong Nan-cho emoticon Those two have to be the most despicable subhumans in K-drama history...and I know there have been a lot. Burning in hell is not good enough for those two scummy jerks!

As if stealing the will & dragging an eldery woman out of a building wasn't enough, Nan-cho is attempting to kill Yoo-jung's mom...who survived heart surgery after finding the will of Chairman Yang, which declared Moo-yeol as the heir to the company & Director Han as the head of Sinsung until Moo-yeol was of age, & realized that Yoo-jung's in-laws are her enemies...by removing her oxygen mask emoticon

There's absolutely NO WAY that the writers can find redemption...of ANY kind...for Moon-do & Nan-cho and I want them to either suffer unspeakable pain at the end & end up in prison or die a painful death.

Everytime I see Nan-cho's face, I hope a mack truck will SMASH right through it...but I'd be happy if Yoo-jung ends up beating that sleazy witch into a pulp, at the end emoticon
