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


Nchristi: Agree with everything you said!

I am really not that terribly fond of any of the characters on this show. I'm not that interested in the show's stories either. Of course, Lee Pilmo and Lee Sang Woo I can watch regardless of how bad the show/characters are. I'm shallow that way.. emoticon

WOW, never thought along those lines... that possibly Sungwu had the pics taken. That sure is a possibility... he wants Hyejin and maybe he doesn't care how low he will go to separate her from hubby... OMG if he did do that I'm going to be so disappointed.

Nah, he didn't do that. I'm not sure he's deep enough to think of that. He looks sort of dim to me.

I'm still disappointed in this drama and can't wait to see what the next drama is. This writer peaked at Sol Pharmacy I'm afraid. I'm probably in the minority, but I still can't attach to any character in this.

Smoochie: Sungwu dim? Works for me... beautiful and dumb.. lol

You're not in the minority because others are not into the characters either. I was chatting w/my friend (fellow Kdrama lover) and she said she doesn't care about the characters either.

Since it's 50 episodes (so far) we still have a way to go but I'm pretty sure I will never care about writer mom. Her husband only interests me if he's interacting with the maid. I love Lee Pilmo but him and Teach are super silly in this. Soup guy and that daughter... no feelings but I do kinda like soup guy. Do not like hubby (won't say anymore) and Hyejin is just too 'vague' all the time.

As for me... I'm running away w/Sungwu

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


I've seen the actor playing Sungwu in lots of dramas where I like him better, but don't like him in this. Yeah, he's cute, but he really is one dimensional and boring in this.

Love Lee Pilmo, but again, not in this. The scenes between he and his cousin, (there, I've said it) border on slapstick. I'm not a fan of slapstick. I can't wait to see him in something else. Between the two above mentioned men, I'd go for Lee Pilmo though.

I like the brother and sister of the soup restaurant, but they do little to make this better. I like the father of the three sons and I'm on his side, mostly because the mother is so over the top and I can't abide her. I also get him. I love the actor, which helps.

Almost all of the women in the drama fall short for me, except Grandma. I love Grandma.

I've seen the actress playing Hye Jin on a variety show and she's a hoot in real life, so I picture that show when she's on camera, and I try to get through it that way. She and Sunwu are as boring together as Lee Pilmo and his cousin are silly and annoying.

So there you have it. Bring on the next one. emoticon

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


I'm planning to stick with this one (only because nothing else Sat/Sun) but as we move along, I'm just not connecting with the characters.

I think the different stories are not that interesting and it seems predictable (which really isn't a problem for me). Whoever said they only liked Grandma.. well I think that's how I feel. Granny seems to have the right idea but even she gets on my nerves with the yelling. Hyejin needs to get w/the program if she wants to survive in that family. I bet she has a screech or two inside her.

Seoyeong (sorry, forgot youngest daughter's name) has gone back to the total idiot who's already dumped her twice. Now that guy is a piece of work! You know soup guy is going to be hurt.

I hope you all appreciate that I deleted what I wrote in this paragraph! LOL

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


Me, Nsheldon! I said that the only female character I like is Grandma. Yeah, she yells a lot, but with that bunch, yelling may be well deserved. I'm with you, none of the pairings are interesting and this is predictable. I could live with the predictability, but not the inanity. Aside from all of that, its so boring it numbs the mind.

Plus, I don't give a rat's butt what happens to Hye Jin anymore. I watched a little of it last night and saw a scene between her and her mother where she makes complete sense. I never want to see her cheat on her husband. I don't like cheats, be it male or female. She made me understand her frustration with hearing again and again how good a man he is for letting her go abroad to study. So, that means that no matter what happens in the future that'll be his claim to fame, 'The Guy Who Let His Wife Study Abroad'. He'll never have to do anything noble again. I don't blame her with being tired of that being thrown in her face. How can she possibly live up to that. He's like a god.

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


I think hubby feels that, since he 'allowed' her to go abroad and study, she should just play the role he wants now - wife/mother. He is totally clueless about her dreams or her talent because that doesn't interest him.

I think both Hyejin and her husband feel strained around each other. It just looks like they both walk on ice around the other. Neither really confides in or shares their feelings with the other.

Because there is a daughter, the writers would never let Hyejin just walk away from the family. And I believe Hyejin adores her daughter just as much as hubby does.

Did someone say the writers are the same as those who wrote Pharmacy Bros? That show was one of my all time favorites (so funny and touching).. What happened... lol?

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


I'm still hanging with this one. With last night's episode, it's heating up. I enjoyed both the script and the acting last night.


My Family, My Love - Ep 31 (Sat)

Lee Jae Ryong (Donghun) is a well-seasoned veteran, doing an excellent portrayal of the husband discovering and realizing there‛s more to "Hyejin and Sungwu" than meets the eye. The scene when Donghun goes to the gallery to confront Sungwu was outstandingly well-written, with a performance to match by Lee Jae Ryong.

The introductory part of this scene was deleted, however. It shows Sungwu happily driving to work, the handsome-bachelor-dripping-with-money look as he darts around traffic in his expensive convertible. Juxtaposed with that is Donghun driving in his family car, deeply distressed as he‛s on his way to the gallery. Donghun arrives first and sits in his car for a moment. Just then Sungwu pulls up, happily jumps out of his car and jauntily runs up the stairs to the gallery. None of this is lost on Donghun as he observes the bon vivant rich guy who is after his wife.

The way the two men reacted to the situation in Sungwu‛s office was realistic. Donghun is a respectable man with the guts to face this awkward situation head on. Sungwu is also effective in portraying a guilty man who is trying to convince himself (and the world) that his behavior is honorable. The other side of this scene is that Donghun is shockingly forced to realize that he does not know his own wife very well, that Sungwu knows her in ways Donghun has been blind to. On his way out of the gallery, Donghun goes to the main gallery room to see Hyejin's painting, which he did not know about until Sungwu told him minutes earlier. He stops in front of "The Sad Magnolia," having seen it before with Hyejin but not noticing it was painted by her, or being interested in the painting itself. The look of pain on his face now is heartbreaking as the shallowness of his knowledge of Hyejin is starting to permeate his mind and heart.

An equal shock to Sungwu might have been Donghun‛s threat not to "let this go" a next time. I took that to mean that Donghun is threatening legal action against Sungwu. In Korea, it is still illegal to commit adultery or be a person who breaks up a marriage as the other woman or other man. The consequences are large fines and/or jail time up to 2 years, though that is rare these days. If there is a jail sentence, it is 6 months or less.

Speaking of "blindness," how in the world can Hyejin take Donghun‛s work jacket to the cleaners without noticing there‛s a huge, folded envelope full of photos in the inside pocket?!

I enjoyed the scenes between Pilyong and Ujin. Looks like Pilyong still intends to marry Yunhui. Better still, he gets on Ujin‛s case for liking Yunhui, straight out telling him he can‛t be interested in Yunhui—they‛re related as cousins. But he, Pilyong, is a "stranger," so the path is clear for him. That was cute. Later, at the TV station watching the boys perform, Ujin sure seemed a little overboard in his physical affection towards Yunhui. Even "couples" don‛t behave the way he did, snuggling his face in her hair, etc.

Also deleted was the scene of Yeonghui in the security office at her apartment complex, watching the videos of Ki-chang chasing the poodle, playing with the little girl on the swings, etc. It was funny because he is a good comedic actor. (In another way, it was sad to see the state the world has come to, where every action is seen as suspicious and perverted.)

Myeonghui and the boyfriend from hell... Is he her original boyfriend? The name didn‛t seem the same.

The family compares notes and decides that Ujin and Yunhui are seeing too much of each other—it‛s time to break this up for appearances sake.

Hyejin sees the photos that were in Donghun‛s jacket, now knowing what‛s bothering her husband. Her timbers are rattled. She waits for hours for him near his work, wanting to talk with him. He‛s in no hurry. The episode ends with him entering the café...

Since I watch on KBS World, I see all the scenes without deletion. Also, KBS World does not have commercials which is even better.

Did you notice when Donghun was sitting in Sungwu's office, he was sitting on the soft couch and Sungwu was sitting in an impressive chair which was higher than Donghun? This visually made Sungwu look stronger and more important than Donghun.

Even thought, this marriage seems like a mismatch, there is more to a marriage than a physical attraction. Heyjin has not really tired to allow Donghun to know or understand her. She needs to be more open. Until a person is exposed to art and museums, they don't necessarily understand art and artists, but one can learn to be more empathetic and understanding if given the opportunity.

Tonight, I think, Donghun made a huge mistake by sending Hyejin to her mother's. He is just making it easier for Sungwu to take advantage of the situation. Sungwu has plans for Hyejin and himself.

My heart sank for DH in the scene ending the last weekend's episode and continuing into last night's (Saturday Night's) episode... with him finally witnessing the potential collapse of his family and his love. When he witnessed SW and HJ in the gallery at night, that was a powerful scene as was his confrontation with SW in last night's episode, agree with all your points nchristi about the actor and performance.
