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


[I will not be doing summaries for this drama, at least not in the beginning. Depending on various circumstances, I might do them again mid-way or so through, but not at this time.]

Last night we were introduced to 18 characters. Whew! Going to take some getting used to in keeping them all connected properly. The good thing about it is there are lots of stories going on, which keeps it from becoming boring (like the Carl Laker story).

Looks like the foundation family consists of a vice-principal and his wife, their grown children, and various aunts, uncles, and children. We have a graduate student in Paris, who has left behind her husband and young daughter. Another daughter is married to Mr. Gestapo, who looks to be a cram school teacher—they have three sons and mom is a wannbe writer who wants a divorce. She's clumsy and frazzled—I guess the comic relief in the bunch.

We have an older actress (I think she is Mrs. Vice-Principal's sister) who fights constantly with her husband (another wannabe writer). Instead of officially divorcing, they have a contract—she lives on the main floor, he's confined to the other until the night hours when his wife is asleep. The trade-off is that he has a place to live and write; she doesn't have to see him very often, their finances are completely separate, and nobody knows their situation. They both, by contract, have agreed to attend family and other events as a married couple, for the sake of appearances only.

Ep.1 ended with the daughter in Paris, Jin, accidentally meeting the show's K-hunk in a museum. What to do about the husband and daughter? Here we go....

Think I might like this one, especially if they continue to include the international angle. Episode one involved a gorgeous Frenchman trying (in French) to entice a beautiful Asian friend into spending some time in Italy.

In a museum later, she scolds (in good English) a different man, to please move out of the way because he is blocking her view of the sculpture she is trying to draw.

*Slow turn - gorgeous K-hunk emoticon turns to gaze at the beautiful artist*

He finally responds to her (in more good English) Then he tries in English again, because, well she started it. Then thinking she looks Korean, he speaks to her in hanguel, 당신은 한국인 meaning "Are you Korean?" Then in English once again.

*Beautiful Asian artist pointedly ignores his presence in any way*

After ignoring everything he says in any language, she finally states sternly only that she is Japanese, then quietly disappears when he turns away to answer his phone. But she has left one thing behind - an eraser with Korean characters one it, which he picks up with a smile & puts in his pocket.

Subs are in English for us of course, but also in Korean for that audience when the actors speak in English, and when the dialogue is in French then subs are in both English & Korean for everybody to read. emoticon

Good practice for what remains of my long ago high school French, and also for my own self taught (& much better Korean skills) so this should be fun.

Don't worry though - it is not overwhelming because I doubt there will be a lot of it - just enough at the beginning to make the story interesting and to indicate Korea's presence in the international community. I know they take pride in their world communications.

I love K-drama when they do road shows.

My oops! The post above would have made more sense had I made it clear that this drama begins with a woman living in France. emoticon

Takes me a while to get adjusted to the new characters and their relationship to each other. However, did want to mention how nice it is to see Lee Sang Woo. He will be my reason to watch.

This will air here starting this coming Saturday night. I'm still a week behind you. I like it better than being a week ahead, where I have to be careful not to give spoilers. I think I'm going to like this. I like the cast already. We'll see.

Smoochie: There are just soooo many of them. You just HAVE to cheat. How could you just take one? Lee Sang Woo is the "I want to snuggle with you guy". Lee Pilmo is my favorite 'actor'.. he can do anything! I could go on and on about these guys!

For now I will enjoy watching Lee Sang Woo (not crazy about Lee Pilmo's hair do)... lol

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


I must have a certain 'chip' missing from my brain because I can rarely understand K-actors trying to speak English, unless they are fluent like Jin was in the museum. I am always wishing they would e-sub the English lines for us as well as for Koreans. Unfortunately, I couldn't understand Lee Sang Woo after he said "I'm sorry, " "Well...," and "You're Korean, right?" I could not understand anything but an isolated word here or there. I end up just writing off whatever the particular conversation is. I'm glad it is usually brief.

I was really surprised to see Lee Pilmo's long hair in the previews! But I'm looking forward to him looking so different. It should be interesting. I'm currently watching him in Suro the Iron King, where he is a long-haired, head-banded villain in a period production. It's refreshing to see him take on all sorts of roles. I agree that he is a really fine actor.

At first I didn't recognize Jo Jin-Ung (Brutus in Sons of Sol Pharmacy). He looks different without the goatee and motorcycle. But again he is paired with the actress who had the crush on him in Sol Pharmacy, though this time they are brother and sister. She is the manager to the actress and he runs a small café, their mother has died.

So far the funniest characters are Yun Hwayeong (the actress) and her writer husband, who live on separate floors of their house. The insults and names they hurl at each other crack me up. He's the old boiled chestnut... she's the soft, wrinkly winter persimmon full of little holes all over her face (botox)! LOL!

At first I thought maybe Jeonghui (married to Mr. Gestapo) would be a source of comedy, but there's nothing at all to laugh about in that poor woman's life. Both her husband and her MIL are completely unbearable.

The title "My Love, My Family" would seem to fit the romances developing between people who are already married to someone else. You can have a love, but how do you deal with your family?

There was a deleted scene about the little girl, Rani, being disciplined by her father in the bedroom. She really mouthed off and threw a terribly sassy, demanding fit at the Birthday dinner table for her grandmother, even throwing food onto the actress. She was about the most out of line little kid I've seen so far in a K-drama. That's why her father was so upset.

How can a Mother leave her 2 year old daughter and go to Paris to study for 3 years. That's an invitation to trouble. Her husband must really trust her but absence does not always make the heart grow fonder, oftentime it makes the heart "wander". It seems that this guy in the museum is going to play a very important part in her life.
