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


Yes, Teacher was upset over the song but she was more embarrassed by people thinking they were a couple. She actually became touched and almost had a smile on her face when Ujin started singing. I think Teacher is trying to keep herself from having feelings she shouldn't have for him (cousin). She starts crying and denying anything going on.

Ujin acts so possessive of the teacher but treats her like dirt. Why do all future romances have to begin with conflict in Korean Dramas?

The "cousin" thing probably doesn't bother Ujin because he has never accepted it. He always calls her "Choi Yunhui" (birth name), not "Kim Yunhui" (adopted name). To him she is neither a blood relative nor an adopted one. But Ujin has not thought far enough ahead to see there might be a legal hangup in their future.

As for Hwayeong's refusal to accept Yunhui as a real member of the family, I think she is traditionally Korean about that (plus, she is a snob). Blood is a huge issue there. That's why abandoned Korean children are adopted out to foreign countries. Native Koreans generally will not accept children from outside their own bloodline, even though the children are Korean. Remember how a widow or divorced woman with children would have to either send their kids to a relative or to an orphanage if she remarried? Her new husband and/or his family usually will not accept another man's children.

There are movements afoot to change this attitude, especially since the declining birthrate in Korea is of major concern, resulting in large numbers of foreigners migrating there as the labor force. The population balance between native Koreans and foreign workers/immigrants is rapidly shifting in majority from Korean to foreign born.

As for Ujin and Yunhui, I think they both treat each other like they're fourth graders. She's every bit as "bad" as he is. They're both stuck in the same time warp... the boy pulls the girl's hair, the girl cries then chases after him or 'tells on him' to the teacher. In the end they can't get enough of each other. Doesn't seem much different from watching some creatures go through their courting routines in the wild.

Then there's Hyejin. I don't get that chick. Sounds like she's now blaming her husband for sending her off to Paris and making her life miserable because of it. Is her life THAT horrible in the household? It looks to me more like her misery is from her own attitude there. I can't see that the way Donghun or his mother treats her is making her a "slave" and disrespecting her. Sometimes her MIL can have a little critical edge, but she's basically a MIL from heaven compared to a lot of others. Looks more like Hyejin's reaction is out of her own guilty conscience, not objectively resulting from the way she is being treated at home. I think she's shifting the blame from its source over to something or someone else. Right now Donghun is handy, the most convenient person to blame it all on for having agreed to give her his blessing to go to Paris to attain her PhD.

Hwayeong doesn't accept Yunhui as her niece... but I bet she will when she finds out Ujin is falling for Yunhui. Then she'll insist they are related..

My friend told me that there has been such an incredible influence by European and Western cultures that, except for the older Koreans or the folks living in villages, most Koreans have put aside their 'old way of thinking'.. It's pretty evident now in the shows we watch... kids marrying despite the objections of their families because 'they are in love'. Also, the past few years a lot of influential people (politicians and entertainers) have gone public trying to keep Korean children (regardless of their background) in Korea and adopted by Korean families.

I hope that Korea doesn't become too much like us. Even if we complain about the differences we see (mean mother in laws; refusal to allow marriages that are not a good match, or refusing to accept someone into your family who has an 'unacceptable' past) it's still those differences that has drawn us to their culture.

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


Wujin is like that because it is genetic...
Look at his parents... emoticon

At first, Wu Jin doesn't like Yun Hee because of the contract, so he treats her like that. But, along the way, his attitude is getting better.. Knowing Yun Hee and then following her around. Being all the time together. There is affection in everything they do, but they haven't realized that..

Every couple's way of showing their affection is different....
And there must be conflict on every relationships... (in life also..)

nchristi:
Wu Jin and Yun Hee treats each other like fourth graders.. Maybe because they still have their child soul. Wu Jin was not raised directly by his mother and Yun Hee lost her parents when she was young..
But what excites me the most is to see them falling in love secretly, and see the phases step by step.. Because this is the first time Wu Jin falls in love, and Yun Hee feels a man appearance besides her father.. So, this is their first love.
And the silly things they've done, it's because they are having first love at that age.. I believe that their attitudes will get better along the way, starting from the hug scene.. emoticon

The question is : Yun Hee and Wu Jin both are Handsome and beautiful, but why for this long years they never fall in love, even once? Instead, they are falling for such complicated status.. Because they never fall in love easily (such as Myung Hee) and never thought of such things as love. Instead, love comes secretly to them.. That is the reason why they are my favourite couple...

nchristi:
Why did Yunhui's father call Ujin and make him participate in the boys' schooling?

Maybe because Yunhui's student has the lowest ranking in their school..
He knows that Yunhui's student is under Wu Jin's contract, but he doesn't want the boys to missed all the lessons and get kicked out of the school also.
Before calling Wu Jin, there are scenes where all the teachers gathered and it is possible that they argued and talk about students ratings. And Vice Principal Kim were there listening to the conversation. That's why he asked Wu Jin to participate in the boys' schooling.

(Sorry, this answers is late. Just watch the scene yesterday..)

Does anyone notice that Lee Sang Woo articulation is very poor? Please do not get me wrong, he tends to mumble, his annunciation is also poor, he sounds like someone who is very tired. Love the actor just wondered if anyone noticed.

I'm alone in this but I think Hyejin should get out of her marriage (the sooner the better). Her husband was agreeable to her going away to study but I really do think he fully expected her to come home and be a wife and mother. As if her 3 yrs of studying would be out of her system by now and she'd be ready to 'settle down'.

I think Hyejin working does make hubby unhappy... like - if she is out in the world then he won't be enough for her anymore.

Hyejin has outgrown her husband and she doesn't want to go back. They just seem like a couple that should never have been.

I think Sungwu is manipulating things with Hyejin... telling her they can just be 'friends'... then loaning her that large sum of money which he must know makes her feel 'obligated' to him. Then he calls her from a bar asking her to come be his friend NOW.

I'm not mad at Sungwu for that. He's wrong for asking her to come but I think he really has no one else to turn to and he is so upset over his father trying to force him into returning to a marriage that was over 3 years ago. Still, he's manipulating Hyejin.

I'm really curious how Ujin and Teacher will be able to be together. His mother will have a cow!

Still haven't warmed up to the 3 sons mother/father.

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


Of all of the dramas running at this time, this is my least favorite. I can't seem to care about any character or their problems. I tape it every weekend and then fast forward through it. The only female in the whole cast that I like is Grandma, so you get the picture. emoticon
