For the first time in years, I can say I`ll be sorry in a few weeks when a drama ends. Great blend of drama and comedy.

Re:


OMG... those ex in-laws of Sangtae's... They are nice people but they are totally ignorant of their intrusiveness. Instead of trying to help those kids adjust, they are siding with them over every incident and just making everything more difficult for the new family. I understand they are the kids' grandparents, but they need to butt out completely. The parent would never keep them from seeing their grandkids but that's not enough for them. They still want to be the ones to call the shots of the kids' lives.

So happy GG and yeondu are good to go. Problem with his mother tho. She's another nasty intrusive parent. I wonder how they will ever get her approval. She already hates Jinju. That Jinju and Yeondu were friends, and in-laws... wow, that means ... well, it means all kinds of issues. Jinju's already intrusive parents will be in-laws of Yeondu again.

I think Jinju and Sangmin should move in with her parents and Yeondu and GG can keep the apartment. No, don't think that would work either. Where would Sangmin's parents stay when they come to visit Jinju and Sangmin? And if there are grandkids, there will be two sets of horrid intrusive in-laws. Just don't know how this will end peacefully.

Mijeong is trying to make everyone happy... her husband, her kids, her step kids and too many in-laws, ex in-laws.

Re:


It`s just a matter of time before Taemim finds out how his Mother really feels about Jinju,so I guess more episodes until this is resolved.You would think the fact Jinju`s family is very wealthy and has only one child would overcome her objection to Jinju`s lack of education. I think it would be better if Taemin and Jinju lived with her parents.Can`t wait to see how Jinju`s mother gets along with Taemin`s Mom;talk about opposites.

Re:


sherlesin, Yes Jinju's family is wealthy, but they made their money by being loan sharks. I don't know how that would fly if Taemin's family found out. They're pretty upstanding people. I do believe the mother will soften toward her or it wouldn't be Kdrama. As they say "no parent can win their kids".

The in-laws are really intrusive, but the kids make it harder by looking toward them while breaking the family rules. I think its hard for the kids, who've been spoiled, to get used to the new lifestyle and less privilege. The adults need to fix it and make the kids aware that they're united and be less imbalanced in their treatment of them.

I'm enjoying this drama a lot and will be sorry to see it end.


A couple of years ago I watched New Tales of Gisaeng with In Soo Hyang (Jin Ju) and Sung Hoon (Sang Min). I loved it because of their love story. Its a different kind of drama than I'm used to, but I really liked it a lot. A very different role for both of them.

Re:


Smoochie... You mean Sung Hoon and Soo Hyang played lovers in the New Tales of Gisaeng? Wow.. Might have to peek at that.

I think those in-laws should have, could have, waited a year before being so intrusive to the new family. They really needed just time to develop from two families into one. The in-laws didn't give them a minute before they were living below them.

I also believe (because it's Kdrama) that Taemin's mother will soften towards Jin ju. But oh my... wait till she meets Jin ju's parents! Yes, they have money.. and that's about it. They have to depend on their maid to interpret any intelligent conversation they have with others. That is so funny. (Rich via loan sharking).

Really hate for this one to end. We rarely get these exceptional dramas anymore. This has been a very good one.

Re:


I've told you about New Tales of Gisaeng maybe three times or more, old girl. You can watch on line, but I bet you have a copy. You'll be glad you watched these two as a couple.

I'm going to miss this drama. Those ex-inlaws would intrude only once or twice. Mijeong is doing a lot better than I would.

Re:


Didn't realize this one was 52 eps. Glad tho cuz it's hard to let this one go..

Starting to not hate those in-laws. They are trying to do a little better. At least the grandfather is. He's seeing the truth about what is going on with the new family and he realizes Su and Bin have much more than the other 3 kids. He seemed like he felt bad about it.

Tho I love Golf Guy (the absolute MOST), why is he pressuring Yeondu to go on a trip? He should just wait until they get married and take a couple days for a honeymoon then next year, when she's off school again, take that trip.

Poor Jin ju and Taemin. I'm glad at least that Sangtae told Taemin the truth about why Jinju broke up with Taemin. His mother!!

Re:


Well, looks like all the secrets, except one, are out. The parents all know Jinju and Yeondu were childhood friends and were also sister in laws until recently. The only 'secret' left that I know of is that Sangmin dated Jinju a couple times. Don't believe Taemin or Yeondu know about that. And i know Jinju and Sangmin are keeping quiet about it because those dates were nothing but a ploy by Jinju to shut her father up so she could continue seeing Taemin. OMG.... I suppose Taemin & Sangmin's mother will find that out eventually??? Hope that one just stays buried!

We have two episodes to go. The two from last weekend were wonderful. I feel less irritation towards those intrusive in-laws now. They are ignorant and pushy but they are also loving. Grandpa realized how much his own two grandkids were getting in the new family, and how much the other three were not receiving. He's wised up about that.

Hate this to end.

Re:


Sorry this one is over. It was definitely one of the best in the past few years (for the 50+ episodes). Had lots of laughs, great cast, great story lines, and was an absolute joy to watch. Unbelievably, I ended my watch of this one actually caring about those intrusive ex in-laws. Such a worth while drama to watch.
