Re:


LOL... Just saw that other post (Smoochie). Smirky. lol lol you made me laugh out loud. I never disliked him but had he tried harder or actually ended up with her, I would have hated him. I think I never felt he had a chance, even though I always thought they were a good match. LOL, can't wait to get there now. My poor Cutie Pie.

Peg... I hope you watch with us. I had no problem bringing up this one on Dramanice. I hope you stick with us through the entire drama, even if you saw most of it already. I've seen it at least 3/4 times and some episodes.... wow, can't count how many times I've watched them.

Off topic but... it's not on this Board but is anyone else watching The Greatest Wives? It's actually my favorite drama going right now. Three women/best friends, all having marital problems. It's different.

Re:


Believe it's MBC. It does have the usual horrid characters but the story line is more mature.

#1 was poor and the hubby got rich but she still dumpy and poor acting. He's ashamed of her and has cheated on her throughout their entire marriage and she finally got sick of it.

#2 is a really quirky happy woman who is married to a .... well, he's like a 2 yr old. His mother lives with them too. MIL is mad the DIL isn't getting pregnant. She doesn't get pregnant because she never has relations with her silly baby of a husband.

#3 is my favorite. Gets pregnant in college but guy dumps her (family pressure) and never knew she was pregnant. She marries another guy who knows she is pregnant. Then her husband dumps her for another woman. College guy (bio dad of baby) comes back into the picture.

Better say something about BB if I'm on this site. lol

TOMORROW TOMORROW YAY!!!!

Re:


too bad I don't get subs on MBC now. Watch too much drama to go online to see this. MBC has good dramas that I'm missing now. Too bad.

BB starts tomorrow. Be there or be square. I wonder if Suky is still handsome.

Re:


OK... Ep 1/2

Introduction of characters. Kiwoong (so sweet/honest) racing to a job interview is sidetracked by a man (drunk) threatening suicide. Kiwoong helped foil that and was late to the job interview and lost out.

Later he goes to see his friend at work (Haein) and is tipped off about a temp job there so he applies for that.

Kiwoong is close friends with Haein.

Haein's mother Yoojung and Kiwoong's aunt Nara are friends. Haein works for Well Being (home shopping show) and is an important member of management.

Minsook seems to be the important 'mom' in the drama. Lives with her hubby, son and daughter... and of course, granny, her MIL. Granny likes to pick on Minsook but Minsook takes it with a smile and seems genuinely fond of her MIL>

Jaeok... don't know much about her yet except she is grieving very much for her only child, Minsoo. Jaeok has no husband so she is living alone. She is sis in law to both Nara and Minsook.

Jongnam: (our dear girl) gets kicked out of the apt she is sharing with a friend. She is working at a bar and ends up sleeping in the back room. She seems hard working, strong and independent.

Nara right now seems pretty happy in her marriage to Jae? He on the other hand has a girlfriend on the side. He is a jerk but it was funny to see him juggling two cell phones (one for the GF to call him on).

Suky is son of Nara and Jae?. He is returning after 10 years (is that correct?). He is the family shining star.

Suky goes out with friends to celebrate his return to Korea. He gets sloppy drunk and is passed out outside the bar where he drank and where Jongnam works. She puts him in a cab but can't find out where exactly he lives so she is stuck w/him and wants her $20 cab fare back from him. But he has no cash in his wallet (she peeked).

Oh, Haein's parents... Yoojung (mom) and dad (not sure of his name yet). Dad is super controlling, watching and calculating every penny his wife spends..

Restroom scene between Minsook and Yoojung was so funny. Had forgotten that. Yoojung's face when that roll of TP hit her made me laugh out loud.

Ohhh so good to be home! emoticon

Re: KDrama Rewatch in the Den : Bizarre Bunch


For tonight , anyway , I am going to post for each episode - I just finished episode 1 .

It is funny , what I remembered when I started to watch this . I remember the first time around how I was so not feeling it as BB started . Of course ( and luckily ) I know myself , so I continued to record it and I started watching
it again the following weekend . As I recall I watched the first eps back to back and I was hooked by the end of
#4 .

I realize ( especially now ) that this was and had to be about introducing the characters . We only got to see a glimpse of some of them . Some random thoughts : I really think Haien is pretty . I don't remember thinking that so much .

It is bothering me that Kiwoong is lying to his family about missing the job interview . His motives were noble for being late , but why should a corporation lackey care ? All they would care is that you show up and you are breathing .

It strikes me that many of these characters are really struggling financially .Jongnam is and the Changs are . You can tell by the way Minsook dresses .

My lip still curls with contempt when I see Nara , but I will try to keep that at bay for awhile anyway .

DO we ever find out what happened to MinWoo ?

And what the heck was Sukhyun thinking wearing those big shades getting off the plane ? : emoticon emoticon

Re: KDrama Rewatch in the Den : Bizarre Bunch


I really feel back for Jaeok . We find out that MinWoo was her son ...so not only is she a young widow , she has now lost her only child .I am of the opinion that it doesn't matter if one has 10 kids - they would still miss the one they lost - but Jaeok is especially lost and lonely without him .

Minsook is trying to help her by bringing her food - but of course , she is unable to eat .
A year ago last summer one of my nephews died suddenly and unexpectedly , so I can understand more of what Jaeok is going through . A parent never expects to lose a child . period .

Sukhun is fresh back from the US , and he is full of himself . However , I can detect no malice in his character which is more than I can say for his mother Nara . She is the kind of woman who can give a gift and make the recipient feel as if they have been slapped at the same time .

For a case in point , I am thinking of when Nara handed Gram some juice saying "Drink this when you are tired "
The look on her face said " and I hope you choke on it " emoticon

Probably never a good move going drinking with friends the same day one got off a 12 hour flight ! emoticon

Smoochie - where the heck are you ?

Re:


Back in the Den, BB family. emoticon

Kiwoong on his way to job interview. Upstanding Korean male on his way to his future gets sidelined by a jumper. Poor drunken guy on a bridge and Kiwoong talks him down at the cost of missing his appointment for the job interview. Funny thing is that he believes that if the persons in charge hear the reason they'd cut him a break. They don't care. He gets no slack. And no job.

We get to meet Minsook and Granny. Minsook is the core and heart of this family. Hardworking and loving and loyal to the bone.

Granny is the matriarch of this clan, mother of two sons, Jaedo and Jaeman and one daughter, Jaedok. She also basks in her authority as the head of the Chang family and she is not shy to wield that power.

We get a look at Jongnam who's in the midst of being asked to leave her friends home. This leaves her pretty much with nowhere to go. She's not taking it well at all. Actually, she has her 'friend' by the hair when we come in.

Minsook gets a call from a friend asking her to use her influence to get a product on her brother in law's home shopping show. She meets her sister in law Nara, #Jaeman's wife# to ask for the favor for her friend.

Yes the bathroom scene between Minsook and Yoojung is really funny. Nara and Yoojung are old friends and both pretty much snobs. These two are always competing on who has the best child. Nara and Jaeman have one son, Sukhyun and YooJung and Byungdoo have one daughter, Haein. Haein has a good job with Wellbeing a home shopping show owned by Nara and Jaeman, or just Nara, but run by Jaeman.

Sukhyun, The Prodigal Son is due home tomorrow from being in the USA, getting his MBA. Let the games begin!! emoticon

I'll be back to add to this in a little while as I have much more to say. Do you know me? emoticon

For some reason I had a problem posting this.
