This is in reply to one of nchristie's questions about a deleted scene:

"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?"

They were pressuring him about dating and getting married. They were not talking about Yunhui. But Ujin was obviously thinking about her, because at one point one of his parents asked if he has a girlfriend and his reponse was something like he's not sure or sort of. Dad also asked him if he likes men. Mom didn't like him asking that, but Dad said something to the effect that families need to be open and discuss these things. Ujin likes women or, as he is realizing, one in particular.

I am in total agreement with all the Lee Pilmo fans here. He's the best.

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


Thanks so much for the deleted scene,Kdfancier. That makes sense. I never would have guess that his father asked if he liked men, though! LOL!

That last scene on Sunday night where Ujin turns to tell Yunhui that "we can't be" said a lot. An unusual way to both 'confess' and part in the same breath.

nchristie - you've inspired me to take down the subs. from the deleted breakfast scene at Ujin's house (from Ep. 33) word for word. Sorry if this is too much, it was longer than I remembered.

U=Ujin; M=Ujin's Mom; D=Ujin's Dad; Items in brackets =me

M - Ujin welcome. Did you sleep well?
U- Yes, did you? Good morning Dad.
D- Look at the time. It's already 11 am. Can't you get up a little earlier?
U-Sorry, I worked late.
D- Do you think that makes you look like an artist? That's all just appearances. When I used to write a lot, I used to write after 9 pm. But it's a bad habit. That's why my skin's so terrible. Look at my hair. It looks as though a tsunami hit me. No offense to Japan. [So that's the hair problem - working late]
M- What are you going on about?
D- I'm just telling Ujin to go to bed early and wake up early. [@ this point I'm thinking it's really about Dad wanting to eat breakfast earlier]
M-Let's just eat.
D- Give me my rice then.
M- It's on the table.
D- Why didn't you say so? You have a weird habit of not telling me important things.
M- Ujin, are you busy today?
U- Yes.
M- You're always so busy with work.
D- Young men should work hard.
M- Honey! [Then she says to Ujin:] Rest up and take up a hobby too.
U- I am.
M- And go out on dates.
U- Excuse me?
M- Don't you have a girlfriend? It's strange not having one at your age. Are you seeing someone?
U- I'm not sure.
D- What? Do you think that's a suitable response to her question?
U- It's only because Mom asked me out of the blue.
D- Do you like men by any chance?
U- Excuse me?
M- [To Dad:] What's wrong with you?
D- We should be open about such issues. Many parents are so ignorant about their children. Tell us the truth. Do you like men or women?
M- [To Dad:] Do you want to stop eating right now?
D- It's an important issue these days.
U- Relax. Of course I like women.
D- Then find yourself a girlfriend. Your Mom thinks you're strange.
M- I do not. I just asked if he's seeing anyone.
D- [To Ujin:] Why don't you meet women then? Has your Mom turned you off to women? [LOL to that!]
M- Honey!
U- Dad I'm going to meet a girl. But I'm so busy right now.
D- Did you have a girlfriend when you were in the States? You're good at English. I bet you were good with lines.
M- Don't say that to your son.
U- Yes, I met lots of girls.
D- Didn't you meet anyone who was worth marrying?
U- Dad, stop it. I'll take care of it.
D- Don't say that. Think of your age. Bring a girl home, get our permission and get married. I hate sitting here every morning being victimized like this. I lead a terrible life.
U- What's wrong Dad?
D- What do you think? You're an adult, but you don't even have a girlfriend. I'm worried about you. Natural things are always the best. You're not natural.
M- Ujin, should I set up a blind date?
U- Excuse me?
M- Someone I know suggested a girl of a similar age. We've often discussed it. If you're not seeing anyone . . . I want to arrange it. What do you think?
U- [makes a noise - no sub for it though]
M- I'm not telling you to marry her. I don't want you to get married early either.
D- Because she's so attached to you. [A major understatement!]
M- Honey! I told you to stop it! [To Ujin:] Don't feel burdened about marriage. She studied abroad too, so you should get along. How about meeting up and going out on a date?
U- It's okay. [Reading this, it sounds like Ujin is agreeing to the blind date, but watching on screen it looks more like he is saying things are okay as is and he doesn't need or want to be set up; and Mom does not like this response of his.]
M- Why do you say that?
U- Just.
M- Ujin!
U- I'm done. Thank you. [Ujin is now making tracks out of there fast]
M- Ujin! Ujin wait!
U- See you later. [Exit Ujin]
D- Stop it.
M- What did I do?
D- Don't stress him out.
M- I didn't stress him out.
D- He's more interested in work than women right now.
M- Be quiet. You have no idea. [I see Mom clearly picturing the situation with the Yoonhi at this point]
D- What do you mean by that? I'm a famous writer. Writers know all about life and humans. Got it?
M- You don't know anything about life and humans. You're so ignorant.
D- I am not.
M- So do you like that Ujin goes over to his uncle's house all the time, at his age, to eat and play cards? [And therein lives the problem for Mom!]
D- What's wrong with it?
M- You be quiet.
D- Don't you like my brother? [Of course his brother isn't the problem in that house in the eyes of Ujin's Mom]
M- What? Oh my God.
D- Why are you suddenly speaking English? You were never good at it in school.

End of scene

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


What is so wonderful about Sungwu? From the very beginning, he wanted Hyejin without knowing anything about her except he was physically attracted to her.

When he discovered she was married and had a young daughter, he became furious. When he went home, he smashed his wine glass on the floor of his living room. He decided he wanted her anyway and proceeded to insure he would have a relationship with her. When she came for the interview, he knew who she was, but let her sit in his office and ignored her for a long time which was part of his plan of making her interested in him. He was dishonest with her from the very beginning.

Her husband made a very bad mistake by asking her to leave. He should have been more open and discussed the situation with her. However, it was difficult for her to be open to him which started the problem.

If she ends up with Sungwu, I would be terribly disappointed.

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


Thanks for the scene transcription, Kdfancier. I enjoyed reading it—I'm a glutton for all the details, so don't worry about the post being too long or anything else. You did a great job and I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciate it. (Believe me, I fully appreciate the effort involved in transcribing scenes verbatim!)

On Sungwu, for the negative spin on what he has done, there is an equal positive spin to other viewers. Those who dislike him will probably never approve of anything he does because to them his 'faults' are those they can least tolerate. Those who like him will be prone to understand what is motivating him and to see the good things he has done for Hyejin. Sungwu genuinely loves and cares for her. He is a person who understands her soul. To pro-Sungwu viewers, his faults are ones that are not difficult to tolerate. Physical attraction—or lack of it—must also be factored into whether or not we find him "wonderful." That's life, whether or not we like it.

Personally, I like to see married couples stay together and work things out—if they can do it. I'm not for Hyejin dumping Donghun and taking up with Sungwu. In this case, Donghun has cruelly removed her from the family. If he wants her back, he will have to do a lot of personal work on himself for her to have hopes of any sort of satisfactory relationship with him. If they can't work it out, then I am not opposed to Sungwu stepping in and building a relationship with Hyejin. They certainly are closer to being 'soulmates' than are Donghun & Hyejin.

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


After taking in other viewpoints regarding Mr. Art Director, I still think that anything he supposedly has done for Hyejin was, in reality, done solely for himself. . .or for the gallery. I think he would be just as controlling with Hyejin as her husband, only in different areas.
   I'm not positive, but I think it was determined somewhere that he is not an artist himself--and he wants to succeed as art director to prove something to his father and his mother's memory (she's deceased, isn't she?) And he knows very well that Hyejin is an asset.
   But even before he hired Hyejin, he had an unhealthy attraction to her bordering on stalking, which is never based on love for the other but only on self-gratification. I'm not sure what his angle is, but he's still creepy to me.

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


He's creepy to me too. I totally understand the husband's concerns. He saw a degree of intimacy between these two that was inappropriate. When he confronted Sung Woo about his relationship with his wife, he (Sung Woo) was arrogant and verging on disrespectful. No matter what he thinks Hye Jin needs to make her life complete, it was presumptuous of him to list them for her husband. How dare he? I don't like this guy. Once Hye Jin saw the pictures, she got why her husband was angry. Yes, he should have a conversation with her, but his feelings are still raw. I don't know how this will end up. We'll see.

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


Pretty heavy moments in the recent episodes.

At the onset, I wasn't fond of HyeJin immediately. Her flaws were bare and it initially seemed like she might escape her troubles by unfairly hurting her family/husband/daughter, and the set of circumstances that are unfolding now... many of us predicted early on would come to a head. But over the last few months, I'm getting more sympathetic towards HJ as we learn more about her. I feel sorry for her.

I still do feel most burdened and sorry for DH. Maybe it's a male comiseration thing... but I can understand why he was uncharacteristically harsh towards HJ. To DH, HJ was his queen; he didn't always have the tools to help her (but I don't think anyone really could), but she was his everything. The combination of changes going on around her (that instability) and DH now "fully" realizing how he never made HJ happy, how she was always unhappy.... obvious to everyone, especially his family.... a family which is the pillar of this story and the pillar of DH's life... is an embarrassment to DH in front of all of them. DH remarked that it wasn't that he thought she cheated on him, but rather how when he saw them together, the way she looked (happy, different) with SW in the photos... she was happy, she was a different person. DH can't face her or face that truth. Everything he thought to be true and his all, perhaps is no longer. For a guy, especially perhaps for him, this is worse than a fling or a physical relationship... another man was able to do what he has never done and maybe could never. DH feels he has failed as a man, and as a husband. The male ego and pride is a very sensitive creature. LOL

With regards to SW. I never really disliked him. He was a typical guy, chasing his prey (HJ). I'm mostly indifferent to him, I don't really have a strong negative or positive opinion of him.

I don't know how this story will end up though. Given this is a K-Drama, and in the context of this story's strong familial obligation and standards, I will be very surprised to see if HJ ultimately leaves DH for SW, but on the other hand, I don't see how DH and HJ will repair their relationship. Perhaps out of responsibility and duty, the couple will stay together due to their daughter/families. I agree with most of you that SW, and HJ are a better match on many levels - they share a lot of similar tastes and interests. Smoochie1 once said something a while back that continued to echo for me as I watched this series... "Real life doesn't always allow us to be matched up perfectly." So while SW and HJ, on paper are a better match, I don't necessarily see them as locked together to the end. In K-Drama land, just as in real life, sometimes total opposites attract and end up together. So far, I don't see the relationship SW and HJ have as a great love though, they share similar experiences, interests, and spend a lot of time together due to work - sounds like a classic scenario for a fling to me, rather than long term relationship. I don't know where this is going yet, it'll make watching it all the more fun to see how this develops. emoticon

I'm starting to really like the scenes with KiChang's family, the three kids and even the wife. LOL Kwon Hae Hyo is such a funny actor; even when he's annoying or too abrasive as this character, I find myself laughing at his scenes. I kind of miss the hired housekeeper they had, there were fun and spirited moments of rivalry between KiChang and the housekeeper.

Finally, sad scenes SoupBoy (Cheolsu) - Myeonghui is such a ditz - typical scenario of the girl going after the shady, cheating jerk, while the nice guy (SoupBoy), at least for now, gets left behind. Hopefully by the end, that will not be the case. Particularly sad see other couple Ujin/YH seemingly at their end, but is it? Looking forward to see how some of these storylines unfold.

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


When Donghun's daughter was getting ready for school, on her own, he offers to help. She told him, "No, mom told me to dress myself" and then, "Mom told me to comb my own hair". When Donghun was looking at her I was thinking maybe he was thinking that there are some things that Hyejin could teach their daughter.. It wasn't just him raising her. Hyejin does have input into her care and value as a parent.

Donghun refuses to talk to Hyejin to try to work it out (it's my way or no way with him). However, I feel Hyejin should go home (if he'd let her). Her daughter needs her and I seriously doubt Donghun or his family would ever let Hyejin have Rani if they divorced. I think mother/daughter have bonded enough now that it would devastate both of them to not be together. Rani already was w/o her mother 3 years. She can't go through that again.

Donghun let's Hyejin's family know that she cheated on him. I noticed he kept that information from his own family. Doesn't want to worry them or cause them to suffer... but not showing the same concern for Hyejin's family.

Donghun finally says he wants Hyejin to quit the museum as a condition for him allowing her to come back home... but that's not the end of it - he feels he can never trust her to work again and tells her to just stay home and be his wife and Rani's mother. That's what he's wanted all along anyway. Can you imagine Hyejin staying in that house all day with his mother!!

Ujin and Teacher are both suffering because they are not allowed to be together. It's really sad watching them. Ujin talked to an old friend (female) on the phone who is now in Korea. I bet that'll start more problems with them. And Teach is going on blind dates.

Silly girl (forgot her name) is mad that soup guy left town. I think she cares more for him than she thought. Where's her new/old boyfriend? She's got a lot of growing up to do.

3 son's mom.. I still can't stand to watch her or listen to her. 3 son's dad does a better job parenting and keeping the house than she does. I'm all for the arrangement they have now.

3 son's mom was so loud and obnoxious at her new job.

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


(Ep. 35 - Sat)

Cheolsu and another young man meet with a successful looking businessman. It was really nice to see our "Brutus" actor playing a serious, handsome guy for a change. He was very handsome, too, in his business suit and masculine hairstyle. I suppose he will become a big financial success. Too bad it will take that for Myeonghui to get serious about him. But by then, I hope he doesn‛t look twice at her—or at least teaches her a major life lesson.

Donghun. Well, I guess he tried not to say anything to Hyejin‛s brother. I liked how the brother wouldn‛t let him off the hook. At least the brother realizes (more than Donghun) how seriously shameful it is to bring Hyejin back to her parents, with suitcase in hand. I was disappointed that Donghun didn‛t have the sense or care to not dump the whole responsibility and shame upon Hyejin‛s head. He probably knew if he stuck to his guns and refused to say anything that he‛d have to face his MIL or FIL—and Donghun would just rather it all go away. Let Hyejin deal with it all. Well, after that last scene between Donghun and Hyejin, he might be very sorry when she finally does do something about their marriage. The only good thing I can say about Donghun at this moment is that they got the right actor to play him—he‛s totally convincing.

Deleted Scenes... class ul Younger Brother returns home. He is shocked and confronts Hyejin about cheating on Donghun. Mom (and younger brother) listening outside the door nearly has cardiac arrest. I don‛t know the dialogue, but Hyejin looks more disturbed about Donghun letting her brother believe she cheated than with trying to defend herself. Brother gives her a tongue lashing and doesn‛t seem to believe in her innocence? In a burst of emotion, Brother runs out of the house.

Meanwhile at work, Donghun gets a phone call from his sister, Yeonghui (writer). Don‛t know what that was about. She‛s under a lot of pressure at work and starts getting text messages each time Ki-chang uses their credit card—which is several purchases in a row. She freaks out that he‛s spending money.
Yeonghui is another ditzy woman. I agree that Ki-chang is doing a better job parenting their sons than she ever did. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, you‛d think she wouldn‛t have the attitude she does about Ki-chang being the stay at home parent.

Well, maybe that‛s the rub. She was a woman who lived in a pig pen, her head in the clouds day and night fantasizing about writing. It‛s probably very irksome to her that the demanding Ki-chang is actually a better housekeeper, cook, and parent than she ever was or will be—and that he's enjoying it! Now that she‛s making money, it has seemed to me that she wants her cake and to eat it, too. She doesn‛t want to switch roles with Ki-chang—she just wants to make money and be famous, keeping it all for herself while grinding him down into the ground. Now that she and Ki-chang‛s roles have switched, she doesn‛t want the responsibility and duty that he used to shoulder. Double standard. I‛m glad he‛s very strong about standing pat in his responsibilities and duties at home.

In the scenes with Yunhui, I wonder if she‛s planning on leaving the family and going away?

(Edit - Added Ep. # at top)
