Re:


One of the reasons I wasn't even going to bother with this one was because of Lee Seo Jin. I had loved him so much in Lovers and then when him and Kim Jung Eun had become a couple (I heard she wouldn't go out with him during filming and he wouldn't leave her alone but she agreed after the show was completed). Anyway, when I heard they had broken up and she was totally blindsided by him dumping her he pretty much went down the drain for me.

I have seen him on interviews where they could barely get him to talk. He came off as very arrogant and rude. He seems to have a super high opinion of himself. Anyway, a lot of people were disappointed in him and he didn't do much for some years.

I had heard that some of his family and some of KJE family were very close, and then very happy when the two hooked up. Must have been uncomfortable for them all after.

I think it's OK to end a relationship that you no longer want but I think people were upset at the way he did it.

I watched (ahead) an episode and it did seem interesting to me. He was interacting with the little girl (so adorable). But to me, he seemed very uncomfortable with a child. Even though he was acting, I don't see him as being a 'kid' kinda guy.

I still want to watch this so may get online and give it more of a chance..

Re:


confession: I really really like this one after all. That little girl is a bundle of talent. LSJ is like a character I haven't seen him play before. Couldn't help it but.... think I like him again. lol (I'm so fickle)

Re: K-Drama: 결혼계약 (Marriage Contract)


I'm really liking this one, too. The relationship between LSJ and Uee's characters is very compelling. There's a charisma about them together that makes me look forward to each episode. I haven't felt this "draw" from any romantic K-drama for quite a long time. Then again, the cast is first rate, as is the writing.

The little girl together with LSJ is also quite electric. She is a wonderful little actor and together she and LSJ naturally emit sparks of their own!

I mentioned it before, but I'm really impressed with Uee's performance in this one. She has become a first-rate actor. The depth of her desperate, emotional scenes is quite wonderful to behold. She certainly is worthy of an award for this role.

Re:


I'm also impressed with Uee's acting. She's excellent. LSJ is OK and I do like him in this but it's odd to see him playing this kind of character and it seems (at times) that it's not comfortable for him either. But Uee and that little girl are outstanding.

Re:


I think that the Seo Jin role is a very tense and awkward one to begin with so I think that he is doing a good job the way he is playing it. I have lost my original liking for him but he is doing well in this drama I think. I can't wait to see where the mother went and if she survives. Somehow I wonder if if the Uee character will also survive. This drama seems to be rather a dark and heavy situation. Given the way things are going I think it would be too simple to have everyone lighten up and provide a happy ending for everyone.
What do you think ?

Re:


The Dr had told the Uee character that she had a 30% chance of living 5 years. I'm wondering if they will kill her off in the end but the LSJ character will keep the little girl. She does have a paternal grandmother so I am not sure if the little girl could stay with the LSJ character.

I agree w/you Peg... I lost the original respect and liking for LSJ. I think he's doing 'ok' in this. Not great. I think he isn't a good fit for this character and to me seemed uncomfortable with the little girl. But I do like this one still.

Re:


Nelli I agree with you.'Also did you notice a line of dialogue for Seo Jin where he said to his former girl friend "I was a bad guy years ago and I am a bad guy now" I wondered if that rang any bells for him.?

Re:


Peg... lol, bet he didn't blink an eye over those comments. Bet he doesn't regret at all. That's fine. If you're in a relationship and not married and don't choose to work on 'fixing' anything, then by all means, end it. However, do it like a gentleman. I just didn't like how he did it. He's what, 45? Doesn't he want to have a family? Oh well, none of my business. He just doesn't have the same respect from me as he once did.

I am enjoying this one a lot. I'm hoping the mom will survive but I bet she won't. I also hope he keeps the little girl as his daughter if the mom doesn't make it. I think he will.

Isn't the brother in this one a total idiot? He acts like a 2 yr old. The dad acts like a dictator.

Re:


I agree with you nelli. I get the feeling that he will never get married and have a family. In my imagination I feel that he has had no childhood affection much. I saw him in a new reality show lately and he was supposed to be interacting with a group of eight year olds. He is just so uncomfortable with them all. Does not know how to be natural playing even football. It was quite an eye opener to see his discomfort.

I really hope that the little girl's mother will be OK. She is a very strong person I think when you see how she deals with that awful father.

Re:


Still hanging in on this one and enjoying it too.

I started a re-watch online of Yi San. LSJ seems so much more relaxed and easy with relationships in that one. Maybe time and hard living has taken a tole on his character? lol

I've seen LSJ in a couple reality type Korean shows. He seems like he's out of place even interacting with the other male stars in those. I think he has some personality issues.

I hope the little girl's mother will be OK too.
