Re: K-Drama: 사랑을 믿어요 (My Love, My Family)


This drama is like a fishnet being pulled up from the ocean. all the fish inside are different species it seems. Same with these characters and their lives. I like most of the people except for Hyejin who is to me the most unreal character i have ever seen. Her boss the Director, is a typical rich top of the heap do as he pleases person. He has the means to put people where he wants them...as in introducing Hyejin into public positions to have a little control over her. He is just like so many men who want what they want when they want it. Many instances of that here in US right now.!! Eventually they get caught, the way the Wife has caught her husband in this drama. No doubt she will be portrayed as a not so nice person...but actually she is quite within her rights to behave just as she has done. Hyejin to me., is still like a sour note causing more trouble than she knows yet. What ever happens, she will surely put herself in an even worse position because she has no concept of her wrong and stupid behaviour. Her husband meanwhile is apparently one brick short of a full load when it comes to commonsense or any intuition. Maybe at last he will wake up after seeing the photos.
The balance is made hy the antics of the other two couples which are always funny and sometime touching. they should work out rather well I think.
I do admire Grandma. she is feisty and quite intelligent hence all the book reading. Plus she has a good feel for what goes on in the family.

I agree that this gallery is somewhat of a mystery. No-one comes there and there are never any cars in the parking lot. Who buys the art there?? Is it a tax Write off ? Seems it may be a sweetener to Snghu to make him take charge of the biscuit factory.

I think the Professor's wife is the most lifely one to have the picturesmade and sent . She seems pretty mean when it comes to Hyejin.

Re: K-Drama: 사랑을 믿어요 (My Love, My Family)


Nothing exciting tonight. Hyejin has become the 'other woman' much to the dismay of Sungwu and heartbreak of hubby. I see no reason for Sungwu to get back with his wife when they only lived together 6 months... and unhappily at that. And it's been over 3 years since that time even..

Hyejin let it all out to her mother... she has been having a difficult time being the wife, mother, and oldest daughter in law while also trying to hold down a full time job. Yet everyone tells her how lucky she is to have such a wonderful husband. Hyejin is definitely overwhelmed.

Sungwu texts her asking if she can take his call. She calls him and cries that everything is too hard and that he is making it even harder (I think she is remembering his hug and knows he has feelings for her).

I wonder why Sungwu never pursued a divorce. He should have long before this. I guess since no one was rocking the boat it kept his father somewhat at bay and also... Sungwu didn't have feelings for someone else. Now that he has found love, you know he wants to divorce the wife.

In the episode where his wife first came back, Sungwu explained that they had filed for divorce early on but Wifey begged and begged him not to sign and make it final because of her father—she would be cut out of the money if she divorced. Each of them went their separate ways and were married in name only. Sungwu went along with it. However, Wifey now changed her demands. Staying married legally is no longer enough for her father, he insists that they live together or he will give the inheritance to her sister. That's why she is determined to live in the same house with Sungwu no matter what it takes.

Tonight's episode upped the ante a lot. Sungwu's father now views the situation with Sungwu as a big black mark on the family and the business. Now Wifey's father is calling Sungwu's dad—more pressure to toe the mark and put on a squeaky clean front to the world.

I don't care for how the writers are flip flopping the Hyejin character. Now she's the poor, overworked victim who is ignored by everybody. It is very true that she is stretched thin by her workload, but when she complained to her mother that Donghun never even asks her at night if anything is wrong, that was pure baloney. How many times have we seen Donghun from the beginning asking Hyejin what is wrong, is something bothering her, etc. Her answer has always been to deny anything is wrong and to exclude Donghun from entry into her secret world of feelings. Donghun has been ignored and excluded so many times recently, who can blame him for turning off to some degree?

Should be interesting tomorrow night, as we see the episode ending with Donghun walking up the gallery steps, briefcase (full of pix, no doubt) in hand, on his way to face Sungwu. I wonder if Sungwu will be there? He hasn't been going to the gallery lately. Maybe he will run into Wifey...

Re: K-Drama: 사랑을 믿어요 (My Love, My Family)


Has anyone noticed the fight between Vice Principal Kim and his wife?
It was awful.... but it ended romantically emoticon
Even grandma migrates to Woo JIn's house... LOL
and Yoon Hee follows her.

i think the core of Hyejin and Donghun problem is communication..
Without it, they will never solved their unfinished business and ended on worst way ever.
They should be locked in one room and shout or speak whatever they feel for this 10 years..

I am very sure that Sang wu will never give a chance to his wife..

I can imagine Sungwu agreeing to "living" with Wifey if it means saving Hyejin from the threatened attack his father made on her. Dad told Sungwu that the art community is a small world in Seoul and he (dad) will completely ruin Hyejin's career and reputation if Sungwu doesn't get rid of her himself. Stormy seas ahead!

I could not help but notice that Sung Woo seemed to turn toward the camera on many of the shots.The cameraman appeared to be in place as soon as the couple sat down in the café. It is uncertain whether these coincidences were the results of prior planning or poor acting.

I think they wanted to make sure they had a full face shot. I'm sure the Director made him look. If I had a camera on him he sure better give me the full face!!!

I am talking about the shots the photographer took to be delivered to Hyejin's husband. It appeared that Sung Woo knew where the photographer was in each shot.

There are a lot of clumsy shots in this drama. Most of them occur with Sunghu and Hyejin and I think that is because the whole part of the drama with them is so unreal. Most of the family shots are natural because the people are natural and you expect, and then accept, that there will be fractious moments and also very warm family times. Nothing sets well with Hyejin when she is at the gallery and it is even more uncomfortable to believe her when she is the wife(or should be) at home. The actress does not have a good handle on her character at all. I don't know how old the character of the Director is supposed to be, but he acts in a very immature manner. He is a chaebol family heir and would have had an education and life that would, or should, make him seem much older than his actual age. As an actor he does not emote too well and his facial expressions are not very varied.

Well that's my nitpicking for the day...

Re: K-Drama: 사랑을 믿어요 (My Love, My Family)


So, Efparri, are you hinting that Sungwu himself may have had someone take these pictures in order to break up Hyejin and Donghun?

As for the acting in this drama, I find it acceptable if not good. I'm not unhappy with the acting, as I think each actor/actress is portraying their character well. My complaint, if I have one, is more towards the way the script paints some of the characters.

As for Sungwu and Hyejin, one fact in the real world is that creative "artists" have a much higher incidence of depression and bi-polar disorder than any other group within society. They rarely fit comfortably into the common realm of people, usually viewed as "weird" by others. I think of this as I watch Hyejin, in particular. It's very, very difficult for an artist to have a foot in each world successfully. Consequently, I can't see her being a successful wife within Donghun's family unless she totally gives up her artistic side. But if she does that, she will be completely miserable. On the other hand, she is not able (or free) to immerse herself into the artistic world in the way she innately desires. So she is miserable there, too. Sungwu has some of the same leanings, though not to the extent we see in Hyejin.

I don't know how this is going to end up in a K-drama. I feel really sorry for Donghun now because his heart is being broken and he doesn't deserve it. But I can't see him ever being a person who understands someone like Hyejin. I can see their marriage and family life only as a friendly arrangement, yet not one that meets the needs deep within the other's heart.

I can see Sungwu and Hyejin making a much better match, but no man (or couple) is an island and there are simply too many obstacles, people, and responsibilities that will prevent them from finding their happiness and solace in one another. Wrong place, wrong time....
