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


SuperRookie, that was the closing scene tonight. Kudos to the actor, Lee Jae Ryong. He put a lump in my throat. His expression was so miserable and sad. He broke my heart.

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


Sad episode. It ends with Donghun telling Hyejin he needs more time to think. In the meantime he is very uncomfortable with her and his family, so he tells Hyejin to move out and go stay with her parents. He refuses to discuss the situation.

Well, it's too bad, but not all that unusual for a man like Donghun. He lives life in a pleasant, easy-going manner, his nose to the grindstone, never doing a single thing wrong. When he believes (rightly or wrongly) that he has been betrayed by actions he would never do, he is a different person.

I agree that it's a next to impossible situation for Donghun and Hyejin to live with his extended family the way they do, trying to work out their marital problems. They need some space—mostly from his nosey, controlling family elders. It's better for Hyejin to go than for Donghun to move out for a while leaving Hyejin behind to deal with his critical family (his mother, especially).

I hate to see Donghun so closed-minded, refusing to even talk with his wife about the situation. Unfortunately, a lot of people are that way. Once they feel their woman has crossed a certain line, they are finished, or they may stay for the sake of family but trust can never again be established.

I hope Hyejin does not go stay with her parents—her drunkard father and victim mother are too impossible to deal with. I would like to see Hyejin rent her own place somewhere and buck up to face and overcome what's before her now. But she won't be alone, will she! Sungwu cancels his flight to Paris. He's decided to stay in Seoul. Sungwu will step right up and be looking out for her, filling the empty place Donghun is creating all by himself.


Episode 32 - (Sun)

My Family, My Love - Ep 32 (Sun)

Deleted... class ul Hyejin and Myeonghui shop for Father‛s birthday clothes. Myeonghui has asked Yunhui along but ignores her input. She wants to buy a boring gray jacket while Hyejin wants a brightly colored yellow-green striped knit shirt, which she purchases.

At home, Ki-chang notices that the maid isn‛t around so he goes into the bathroom. She unexpectedly comes in while he‛s using the ‛john.‛ Later, he comes home. He‛s afraid to do anything personal with her in
the place, but now he feels free to take a shower. Suddenly, the maid returns from buying toilet tissue as Ki-chang is all soaped up in the shower (they don‛t seem to use their shower curtains for privacy). As they unexpectedly discover each other staring, the hysterical screaming starts. When Myeonghui comes home that night, both Ki-chang and the Maid are still in a state of trauma. It seems the Maid thinks Ki-chang is a deliberate pervert of some sort and it looks like she quits. Myeonghui jumps all over Ki-chang, blaming him.

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


Starting to enjoy watching 3 sons' dad taking over the housework, cooking, etc. He does a better job of it anyway so I'm all for this arrangement. Don't know why his wife is so disagreeable to it. She acts disgusted with him.

Hyejin has been kicked out of the house. What's Donghun going to say to explain that to his daughter. It's obvious that the Rani has become close with her mother. Even if they tell Rani a lie everyone else in the family will know and someone's gonna slip..

Nothing really about Sungwu... I think his character will only serve to be the catalyst for Donghun and Hyejin to get a better understanding of one another and to strengthen their marriage (by the end).

Ujin doesn't understand the sudden cold shoulder from Teacher. He can't handle it and she's really only saying 'others' could get the wrong idea about them. However, she's as much hurt by it as he is because she already cares for him.

Soup guy... OMG he must be so hurt.

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


(Ep. 33 - Sat)

My favorite scene last night was Ujin and Yunhui having their $13 orange juice in the café. Lee Pilmo is just the best actor... it blows me away. Watching the way he did that scene was so real, like sitting there across the table from him seeing all his conflicted emotions crossing his face while he's trying to maintain his 'coolness.' It's starting to dawn on Ujin what's going on here with Yunhui, though he doesn't know the whole story about his mother. Then his self-defense of rejecting Yunhui because he has just been rejected and can't believe or accept it. Great scene.

Cheolsu - Wow. Too bad his feelings are wasted on that ditz Myeonghui, who is led around by the nose by Mr. BFH (Boyfriend From Hell). Sheesh, not only does she cower in obedience to every slave command he utters to her, but all BFH has to do is dangle a fancy cellphone with a glitter studded heart attached to it (fake or real) and Myeonghui is his forever—until he sees somebody more interesting to him. Good. He can have her! How she can kick Cheolsu (or any decent guy) to the curb so rudely—and not even call him to break their dates (2 already)—is beyond me. She deserves whatever she gets from BFH, or any of her loser boyfriends.

Then there is Donghun. I almost don't want to get started on that guy. Okay, I can understand how really hurt he is. I can even understand that he can't forgive Hyejin—a lot of men couldn't. She has definitely crossed some lines violating Donghun's sacred relationship with her, even though she seems to think that having sex with another man is the only betrayal within a marriage.

There doesn't seem to have been a deleted scene before Donghun and Hyejin kneeling before the elders. Since Hyejin said she would not leave, I can only assume that Donghun has decided on his own to tell them Hyejin is going back to Paris for three months. Since she doesn't really want to get into all this with the parents, she just sits there taking all the blame with her mouth zipped shut. Then Donghun takes her and dumps her off in the street near her parents' house.

I hope Sungwu comes along and sets her up somewhere else, or moves her into his apartment while he goes back to his father's house temporarily. I hope she doesn't set foot in her parents' house and go through all that humiliation.

But most of all, Hyejin had better do some deep thinking about whether or not she wants to take back a man like Donghun. Women put up with a lot for the sake of their families, but what he is doing right now is particularly foul. He could go to counseling with her. He could sincerely listen to her and try to understand her situation and motives. There's a lot he could have done rather than slam shut the door and get her out of the house. What Donghun is doing to Hyejin is worse than what she did. He's no great prize to be eagerly accepted back, that's for sure. With his temperament, he could never really forgive and forget. Hyejin thinks she got tired of hearing about how Donghun allowed her to study in Paris? Just wait till she tries to live in that house now that Donghun is no longer on her side—worse, that he's against her.

Deleted Scenes... The only one I saw was of Ujin and his parents before Yunhui started rejecting his rides. Whatever the parents brought up made Ujin so uncomfortable that he couldn't eat his breakfast, got up and left. Were they talking about Yunhui? Or putting the pressure on him to start dating and get married?

I love Ujin's actor. His style is so like younger Cary Grant! Comic, romantic, serious!

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


Such a sad episode tonight in all three storylines.

 I am irked at Donghun. Even allowing for cultural differences and traditional gender roles, it just irritates me that he can stand in front of the family and let his wife take the blame for his ego that is woefully lacking. Maybe he already realizes he shouldn't have sent her away. He looks tortured.
   Out of everyone, only little Rani seems okay with it, and she should be the one who is hurting the most. Quite the actress for such a little girl.

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


If I were Hyejin, I'll never forgive Donghun and will never go back to his parents hoise. He discarded her like trash. She is better off now, she does not have to live with that awful MIL and be like a slave taking care of the family. If I were Hyejin, I will make Donghan suspicions true,. I'll go to Sangwu who truly loves and adore her (but first, get a divorce)!! Hyejin made a mistake but the punishment was too cruel. Donghan should not have let her study in Paris in the first place and be reminded of it all the time. I like Grandma.

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


Well, I've said for years that Lee Pilmo is my absolute favorite actor. He can do anything and I just love him. I wasn't too fond of the character Ujin but I'm starting to like him more (mostly because of Lee Pilmo)

I had decided to try to not say anything negative about Donghun. I know he and Hyejin will get back together. It's right they do. However, (here I go saying something bad about him) I have not liked his character from the beginning. I know he is a good father and son. But I do not like him and Hyejin together. They are just too mismatched for me.

Donghun is run of the mill dependable, good hearted, plain folk... and there is nothing wrong with that (I'd like to have someone like him in my life)... but he will always live his life not being comfortable with a wife who wants more than wife(ing), mothering, cooking, cleaning, and smiling for her mother in law all the time.

Hyejin is like that faraway star that Donghun managed to snag, and I can't fault her for not being able to fit into his universe. She's just too opposite of Donghun.

Hyejin should be with Sungwu. I could see her and Sungwu living together in his mother's old studio/home, happily running the museum, having dinner parties, doing fundraising, traveling the world and being the 'couple' everyone envies.

If there just wasn't that daughter... emoticon

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


It's funny that Donghun is the one who originally thought up and suggested that Hyejin go to Paris to study, completing her degrees. She was already depressed and in a dead-end state married to him and having a child and giving up her art. They had their own place back then without family interference. Their home was sold to pay for her studies in Paris, with Donghun and Rani moving in with his family, where they still are today. Donghun loved Hyejin very much and wanted her to be happy. Unfortunately, he treated the symptoms, not the disease. It's very sad how things are evolving in their lives.

I agree this marriage is a bad mismatch. There isn't any way for both of them to be happy without making the other suffer. One or the other has to sacrifice who they are at their core, and what kind of a life of pretense and suffocation is that for either one?

Personally, I'm not yet convinced that Hyejin and Donghun will end up together. That was the K-drama formula in the early days but we've seen some dramas that have diverted from that quite radically. Remember "Mom has Horns" (or whatever it was called here)? She lived like a zombie, just doing her duty through blinders, never looking at anything else but cooking, cleaning, and obeying her FIL and husband. The drama ended with her not only breaking rank and studying things she wanted, but she got her own little apartment and the drama ended with her getting on a bus and waving good-bye!

I'm not convinced that Hyejin will end up with Sungwu, either. But I can see that he would be a major support in exposing her to what she is missing in life, that she doesn't have to sacrifice herself completely in order to not rock others' boats. As for Rani, she has lived most of her life with her father and grandparents. She can continue there happily, with Hyejin playing a different role in Rani's life. Maybe the days of full-time, live-in mom just can't be anymore, especially since Donghun kicked her out.

I had forgotten about the secret studio on the outskirts of town, where Sungwu's mother had lived and worked. What a perfect place for Hyejin to recoup and get back on her feet—and become inspired. That studio has to figure in here somewhere, I'd think. These stories don't usually introduce us to something like that and then suddenly drop it forever. Plus, there is the connection mentioned in the beginning that Hyejin is like Sungwu's deceased mother.

A couple of important deleted scenes from Sunday.... After Cheolsu walks Myeonghui home, when she laughs off having kissed him before and spending her time with him for a month, he leaves unable to hold back the tears and the pain in his heart. At the café, his sister hears him crying in his room, the door locked. He is sitting there with a blanket covering himself (like a teepee) to stifle the sound, sobbing heavily. His sister is worried but leaves him be. During the night, we see Cheolsu walking into the dining area, carrying a packed bag. He tidies up some dishes, puts a sign on the door, and disappears into the darkness. This is the background to Cheolsuk grabbing Myeonghui as she walks by, yelling and pulling her hair for playing with her brother's feelings and hurting him so deeply he has been gone for four days.

Another deleted scene was of Ujin bringing a birthday present to Yunhui's father early in the day—since he is no longer going to hang out with the family when Yunhui is around. It is a sweet scene, one that makes the later scene that night even sadder when Ujin walks past Yunhui's home, pausing to hear the laughter and happiness of the whole family celebrating Uncle's birthday as he is on the outside and alone.

Ujin's mother about jumps out of her skin when Granny tells Yunhui to take some of the party food over to Ujin, who is "working" at home. She even pipes up with wanting Myeonghui to take the food to Ujin—but Myeonghui isn't home. I really dislike characters like Hwayoung, who put on a public face to the family then secretly are mean as heck to some poor girl like Yunhui. Poor Yunhui still has a lot of suffering to endure at the hands of Ujin's mother, but one of these days we're going to see Hwayoung grinding her teeth at not being able to control Ujin and Yunhui. I can hardly wait!

Then there's Donghun's mother. Good grief. It's like her reason for living is to wait by the front door and start picking on every poor soul who enters, wanting to know this, that, and everything. That household needs one of those 'anti-barking' electronic devices specifically for Mom's voice. Ahh, blessed peace and quiet....
