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


I really agree with you about Ujin's mom, Slantyeye. This actress usually looks great—love her clothes and especially her hair and jewelry. I think she's a very striking woman, with confident and beautiful carriage. Too bad she usually plays such an elite snob, instead of a pleasant person who is like a walking work of art.

Speaking of hair, I am constantly annoyed by what they've done to Granny's hair. In the beginning, it was clean and styled nicely. Gradually it became really ugly looking—till now she looks like a dog desperately in need of a bath and combing. The yellowness of some of the front strands is really disgusting. Like they've sprayed her wig day after day after day without ever cleaning it. Yuk. (Talk about "icky"! LOL!) 'Boo' to the director for having Granny go through a reverse "makeover," ending up looking so unclean.

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


Ep 56 (Sun) - (Page 1 of 2)

At the mansion, both Mom and Dad make preparations for the big dinner tonight. Dad drags his suit out of a box on the shelf. Hwayeong has her housekeeper make a special meal with many side dishes.

Ujin is taking Yunhui to his house, not letting go of her wrist for a second.

Back at the family, they all sit around the table talking about what just happened with Ujin and Yunhui. Somber mood. Even though they obviously said ‛yes,‛ (or Ujin wouldn‛t have taken her out), they‛re all sitting around complaining about Ujin. Did he just con them? Is he stealing their Yunhui?. Donghun and Hyejin seem okay with it, but Mom and Dad look sour—especially dad.

Outside the mansion gate, Yunhui is whining and resisting—wanting to postpone this dinner because she‛s afraid to see his mother. Inside, she can‛t look at Hwayeong. But Hwayeong shows some class by making herself welcome Yunhui, that she‛s glad she came to dinner. Dad comes upstairs in his suit, shocked to see Yunhui there for dinner. He tells her to leave, that it‛s dangerous for her in this house. Poor Dad. Neither Ujin nor his wife has told him what‛s going on with Yunhui and Ujin. Dinner is rather silent and awkward, Dad clearing his throat and making noises repeatedly. Hwayeong chastizes him for his behavior in front of a guest. ‛She‛s no guest,‛ Dad replies. He can‛t believe his wife has okayed this arrangement and tries to do a high-five with Ujin across the table. Dad winks at Yunhui, making her drop her meat from her chopsticks onto the table, as Ujin hurries to clean it up. Hwayeong has no reaction. I guess to cover Yunhui‛s faux pax, dad starts eating his short ribs with his fingers.

Dad goes into the bathroom and secretly calls Donghun, wanting to know if the elders really gave their permission? Hwayeong has Yunhui in her bedroom for tea, while Ujin hangs out alone in the front room, reading. Hwayeong is serious and somber with Yunhui but asks if she really loves Ujin and has chosen to marry him. ‛Yes.‛ But there‛s a price to pay for this choice. Hwayeong tells Yunhui that she is very different from Yunhui‛s family, that everything will be different here in this household. Can Yunhui fit in and make it work? Yunhui earnestly tells Hwayeong that she will do her best to please Hwayeong, as if her life depended on it.

Back at the family, Myeonghui is shocked to hear from Grams that Aunt Hwayeong asked Yunhui to dinner and that Ujin & Yunhui are now a "go."

Myeonghui returns home to find Cheolsu and Cheolsuk watching a baseball game, eating a bag of chips together. She starts beating on her husband for eating the fries and tries to take them away from cheolsuk, too. Cheolsuk will never lose weight eating such food so late at night! Cheolsuk ends up alone in her room eating fries while Myeonghui beats up her husband in their room. She makes him go get Cheolsuk and jump ropes, ordering them to go to the school yard and run 100 laps and do 3000 jump rope skips.

Ujin takes Yunhui home from dinner. Both are happy. He holds her and she hugs him back.

Back at the restaurant, Myeonghui is cleaning tables, wondering where Cheolsu and Cheolsuk are. At the school playground, Cheolsuk has had it at one lap, while her brother stands motionless twirling the jump rope with one hand. His form of rebellion, he will swing the rope 3000 times. As they talk, Cheolsuk is sad, remembering their mother. They stand side by side, each "exercising" by twirling the rope with one arms, switching positions in order to exercise the other arm!

Deleted... class ul Dad is worried about Yunhui, goes outside to wait and finds her sitting alone in the swing. He sits down and wants to hear her feelings. She‛s worried about something. Dad offers advice? They hug each other tightly and are happy._____

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


Ep. 56 - Page 2 of 2

Director is still elated at the great script Yeonghui has turned in. Ki-chang has created complex infidelities by making the ‛love triangle‛ into a a foursome. Yeonghui is confused at what Director is saying. What? She wrote it, why is she asking him? he asks.

Ki-chang is giving another lively lecture at the academy, the students fully enjoying it.

Yeonghui goes to visit her mother at home, finding a large basket of flowers there from Ki-chang. She talks with Grams and her mother, grumbling about Ki-chang having brought the flowers. Mom and Grams lecture her on how she treats Ki-chang, that she‛s got the best husband. Yeonghui accepts it, but doesn‛t like it. She tells them she is treating him better, making improvements. Like what? asks Grams. Tell the things she has changed and improved. Yeonghui says she cleans up the apartment much better, and takes care of the boys. Her elders are not impressed.

Returning home, Yeonghui complains about the messy front room, picking up the boys‛ junk. Then she changes into her sloppy "work" outfit for writing. In the den, she wonders if someone is there, a spirit... a ghost? Who wrote the script? Ki-chang comes home to hear and watch his wife scared and threatening to ‛shoot‛ the spirit with a pen she is holding like a gun. Is she nuts? She wants him to stay there with her, afraid of the spirits. He tells her he wrote it. Then talks about some of the complex character and plot changes. She can‛t believe it, but it‛s true. He leaves for the bedroom, telling her to pick up the ball from there and write the next two chapters. This freaks out Yeonghui, since the complexity is way beyond her ability not only to grasp but to develop further.

Ujin and Yunhui visit Uncle Priest at the church about their wedding. He is happy for them, now that all the parents have agreed. He tells them he‛s leaving for Africa in a week and is sorry he won‛t be here for their wedding. Yunhui cries. They walk home, Yunhui in a sullen mood. Ujin suggests they can go to Africa for their honeymoon, if she likes.

Hyejin & Donghun run into each other on their way home from work. Contentedly, they talk as they walk home. Near their home, they see Ujin and Yunhui running through the streets like children playing ‛whip.‛
  
Cheolsuk and Partner at the TV station. They‛ve just been hired to do ‛voice over‛ work (I missed some of this). Both are excited and happy when Ujin calls Partner, telling him he is getting married and staying in Seoul. Ujin tells Partner to fire Cheolsuk right now since he is coming back to his old job. Cheolsuk lets out a shriek!

The three sons are ready to go to their baseball practice. Dad says ‛bye. Mom is fretting in the den, unable to write the next chapters. Director calls and she‛s back to her frazzled self. Ki-chang reads in the bedroom. She runs angrily to him, unable to further the script. She begs him for help... he refuses. He‛s already helped her enough. She keeps begging him, saying she will do anything he asks. Anything, Ki-chang ponders? He tells her to get on her knees. Crying, whining, rubbing her palms, the episode ends with Ki-chang having a look of power on his face, Yeonghui desperate to have him write the next two chapters the director is demanding. Fadeout as Ki-chang is about to tell her his terms for saving her...

They had to artificially age her for the role. The actor (1939) who plays the vice-principal, her son, is actually older than she (1941) is. The actor (1944) who plays her second son, the writer, is only three years younger than she. She had on a terrible wig in "Happiness in the Wind" also. She was only eight years older tthan the actor (1949) playing her son in that series.

Not to mention that the actress who plays the grandmother and the actor playing second son have quite the drama history. He played her son-in-law in Chill Princesses, and her husband in My Precious Child.

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


I haven't posted in a while due to being a bit busy this month so my post is mostly a few scattered thoughts on the recent episodes...

You know, this drama has been on and off for me, but I must say I really enjoyed the pair of episodes this recent weekend and previously.

I got a kick to see the continuing evolution of the relationship between KiChang and his wife... what irony.... first they switched the traditional gender roles and now they've teamed up, at least temporarily. In a related scene, I enjoyed the scene in the tent/minibar between KiChang and DH. KiChang's wife is perhaps the one character in this series who hasn't really evolved or become a better person yet. KiChang has been slowly evolving for the better, so it'll be interesting to see if this current situation will not only mend the marriage but also make her a better mother and wife.

Ujin and Teach's relationship has been awkward from the get-go, but I've found the drama between them acceptable - I've especially enjoyed the scenes between Ujin and his mother recently, as a result of their relationship. Granny was the catalyst to softening Ujin's mom's position (Garden scene - another one I enjoyed). Ujin's mom has been so menacing throughout the series, it was nice to see her relent to her son and compromise. LPM's acting has been the highlight for sure in these recent episodes, especially in the aforementioned scenes.

Two of Lee Pil Mo's flaws are that he does not look into the face of the person he is addressing and he chews his lips too much. Sometimes one wonders if the two characters are in the scene at the same time.

Sorry I haven't been able to give the subs for the deleted scenes lately. I will try to catch up soon on any key ones. Work and a house project have made it difficult. In the meantime, I found these 2 different videos that end with the same commercial on YouTube today and the Ujin/Yunhui fans may find them cute. I did.

Yes, she compromised but to what extent, "cry baby " will have a tough time in her household, she wil be relegated to a maid, and Miss Prissy will scuff at everything she does, her life will be myserable. Love granny she tells it as she sees it., the garden scene was classic, put miss prissy in her place.

Still love "soup boy" sister she is just great, do not like soupboy's wife never like her character.

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


Enjoyed tonight's episode. Looks like we'll have the wedding tomorrow night. Teach looked really beautiful (in the preview) in her wedding dress.

I really don't think Teach will have too difficult a time living with Ujin's family. I think dad in law will defend her (even if he was teasing tonight and saying he was against the marriage). He will be her biggest supporter. And I think Ujin's mother will try to be strict but she will love Teach. I'm thinking too that somehow, Teach will be the one who brings Ujin's parents together.

To me the person who has evolved the most has been Hyejin. I see her on the screen now and it looks as if her marriage and her in laws are more important to her than life. She also seems extremely content and happy there. She's always laughing and enjoying the family.

3rd son was fun to watch tonight. He really let his dad have it. That kid is doing a good job. Love all the kids! 3 sons' mom/dad are starting to work together on that writing thing. Think they will become a great team of writers (together)!
