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


I have a feeling all scenes featuring the 3 son`s mom and her director had some realism along with comedy. Lee Pilmo sometimes reminds me of the late Rock Hudson in his smile and some mannerisms.

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


Ep 57 (Sat)

Jeeonghui begs Ki-chang to help her write her drama episodes, but he refuses. She begs and begs—he finally says ‛yes,‛ but she has to do everything he tells her to do. He orders complicated dishes for dinner... things like that.

Granny decides they all need to have a "meeting of the in-laws" dinner. She calls Hwayeong and tells them to come over. Hwayeong sees no need, since they‛re all relatives to begin with.

Deleted... class ul Hwayeong tells her husband and Ujin about Granny‛s plan? Dad is grumpy and a big argument ensues between he and Hwayeong. My guess the discussion has turned into his wanting to move back upstairs, but Hwayeong won‛t let him. This goes on for 5-7 minutes of air time. Ujin is disturbed about their argument and leaves the house.Yeonghui on phone with her mother saying she can‛t attend the engagement dinner—too busy cooking and writing. Makes another big meal for her kids. Still licking rice off the kid‛s face. Her drama comes on the air, the kids rush out to watch with her. When Ki-chang arrives home, he isn‛t interested in watching with the family and goes to his den, slamming the door. The little one has a fit and tells his father off, that he should join the family, this is an important event for mom. He follows his father into the den and attacks him more vociferously, slamming the door harder than Dad did!

More trouble for Yeonghui... her director is having a fit over her script, throwing it all over the office. The ratings for Ep. 1 were only 5%, while their competition‛s opening episode was 20%. As Ki-chang is leaving for work, he finds Yeonghui in the desk well sobbing and wailing. Eventually (long time) he relents and writes an outline on the white board, riding herd over her as she writes.

At the Kims, the women are preparing the food for the engagement dinner. Myeonghui is doing Yunhui‛s hair while she wears a white lace dress. They bond as sisters. Ujin and his parents arrive. Hwayeong is still less than enthused, but is civil and pleasant to Yunhui. Grams comes out, talking to the family as the head. The two brothers (fathers) start arguing—Ujin‛s dad is still upset and angry about not being allowed to move back upstairs. He can‛t get out of that mood. Hwayeong starts shushing him up, not wanting her MIL to know they live/sleep in separate quarters. Later, everybody eats together, toasting, etc.

Donghun on phone with Ki-chang. Why aren‛t they at Yunhui‛s engagement dinner? Ki-chang busy helping Yeonghui with her script writing.

Hwayeong furious with her husband as they return home. Ashamed of his behavior with the family. Ujin tries to calm his father. Dad is upset that Ujin doesn‛t take his side against his mother. In the basement, Dad complains to Ujin about having to live down there, the mold, the bugs itching him. Ujin goes upstairs to his mom‛s bedroom and tries talking with her. He finds out the reason his dad was banished to the basement three years ago was that he got drunk and urinated all over Hwayeong's bed. She isn't over it yet—he probably never apologized, either....

Deleted... class ul Cheolsu and his sister eating meat together while Myeonghui‛s at her family‛s. They chow down the meat and rice... no Myeonghui there to criticize them. Suddenly Myeonghui returns home. She throws a fit when she sees them and they both cower before her. Upset that they left her out? Eating the good stuff for themselves while she‛s gone? Eating food that will make them gain weight? The two women face off and Myeonghui says something to Cheolsuk, offensive even to Cheolsu. (This must be where Myeonghui declares Cheolsuk is not "feminine.") In their bedroom, they argue about what Myeonghui had said to Cheolsuk. Neither gives in.After dark, the wedding chest arrives. This custom is carried out by the groom‛s best friends, loudly bringing wedding gifts carried in a chest, gifts that must be "bought" by the bride‛s family. Surprisingly, the procession is led by Cheolsuk! She declares that since Ujin has no friends, she organized and carried it out. Partner carries the chest of goodies, and the B-Boy group complete the group of revelers. (They later serenade Yunhui from outside the gate.) The family comes out to see it all, even Mom hobbling out with her surgery. Ujin is deeply touched by the wedding chest ceremony, finally seeing his dream come true. Inside the house, in hanbok, Yunhui tearfully smiles and loves the whole event. Cheolsuk does a great job of refusing to give over the chest without the money being paid to the bearers (custom). She plops herself down onto the street, refusing to bring in the gifts until the bride‛s family hands over the customary money envelopes and gives them all soju. Hyejin runs in for some soju, giving drinks to the bearer party.

Cheolsuk then calls out Myeonghui to do a dance, which irritates Myeonghui, but she can‛t really refuse. A regular party of singing, dancing, and adults drinking is going on in the street, with all the cousins there—including the Three Sons.

Inside, the men carry Ujin to the bedroom, beating him on the bare soles of his feet with a board, for stealing away their precious sister. Cheolsu takes the lead in administering the sole beating. Afterwards, Ujin takes Yunhui to a remote part of the yard for a moment together alone. He gives Yunhui the diamond ring he had purchased for their ‛first‛ wedding. He slips it onto her finger. She loves it. Embrace. Kiss on the forehead.

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


I thought Teach was so beautiful at her wedding. And I loved the dress on her. Now, on to the crazy house with Ujin's parents!!!

Previews seemed to indicate the mom may still have cancer.

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


Ep 58 (Sun) - Page 1 of 2

Yunhui in her room excitedly looks at her diamond ring in the wedding chest. Over at the breakfast table at Ujin‛s, his parents are morose, Ujin happy. Dad starts it all again, still pouting about not being allowed to move upstairs. Ujin tries to get them to reconcile, especially with Yunhui moving in. More arguing and yelling... escalates to the point that dad defiantly gets up and returns to his basement.

At soup restaurant, Cheolsu is furious with his sister for her behavior at the wedding chest arrival ceremony. How dare she, a woman, lead the loud procession and distort money from Yunhui‛s family? Doesn‛t she want to get married? Cheolsu says ‛No,‛ she wants to live as she is. Cheolsu‛s mouth drops open and he is speechless. Myeonghui eavesdrops, relishing the scolding her SIL is receiving. Cheolsu wants to see how much money his sister got from the Kims? $1080. Apparently, the wedding chest bearers keep the money, as Cheolsuk tells her brother she is taking Partner and the Boys out for a drinking party with pork skins. Cheolsu orders her to be home before 6p and that they will go to the park and do 10 laps, 3000 rope jumps. Then he yells at her to bow properly to her SIL as she‛s leaving. Head hanging low, Cheolsuk leaves.

Deleted... ? class ul Cheolsu calls Donghun, to apologize for his sister? Donghun laughs it off, as the whole family seemed to enjoy the event.Ki-chang talking on phone with his divorce lawyer, who is encouraging him to go forward with the divorce... now or never. Ki-chang makes excuses... there‛s a matter at home that needs attention first, but he refuses to tell the attorney it is Yeonghui. He tells his attorney to tell Yeonghui‛s lawyer that they are postponing the hearings for the time being. In the den, Yeonghui is still sniffling and carrying on as she writes. She completes a chapter and Ki-chang tells her to send it off. Ki-chang wishes she would just stop writing and return to her former life.

On her own, Yeonghui goes to her beauty shop and has her hair permed the way she wore it in her pre-writer days. She has also returned to her baggy clothes and Charlie Chaplin waddle. Ki-chang is surprised and likes that she has returned to the Yeonghui he was with for 17 years. As she is about to start writing again, she puts on her glasses, but Ki-chang tells her ‛no,‛ she doesn‛t need them. The last vestige of her intelligent businesswoman look is gone.

Ujin and Yunhui go to the columbarium to visit her parents, telling them about their marriage plans and asking permission. More tears. Ujin promises to treat Yunhui well all her life and ends with a formal bow before them on his knees. It‛s raining as they leave. Ujin takes off his suit jacket and covers her as they dash out to the car. They run together in the rain, laughing and shrieking as they get soaked.

Meanwhile, Yunhui‛s mom sits in a hospital waiting area, looking at the heavy rain outside. She is worried about Yunhui and Ujin being caught in the rain. Dad comforts her, reminding Mom U&Y are both adults. The nurse calls Mom in for her tests. Dad is worried, remembering the surgeon had told him the risk of Mom's particular cancer coming back is very high.

Ujin returns home. Hwayeong reading her scripts, dad in the basement, scratching. Ujin comes down to talk with dad and drink together—sort of like his bachelor party, I guess. Upstairs, Hwayeong finds a ‛clean‛ glass unwashed, calls her housekeeper and threatens to fire her. In the basement, Dad flashes back and explains to Ujin about the bedroom peeing incident. [E-subs mistakenly said "bed" in last episode, instead of "bedroom"] Dad was so drunk that night that when he came home he thought he was still in the dark restaurant and following instruction on where to find the men‛s bathroom. Confused, he ended up in his own bedroom with Hwayeong and pees in the corner by her dresser. Hwayeong explodes. Dad is banished to the basement. Ujin looks disapprovingly at hearing his father‛s story. But dad scolds him, saying when he gets old, bald and pot-bellied, he might do the same thing, too.

Mom returns home from hospital tests, exhausted. She seems to once again be ill. Just wants to sleep, feels cold, etc. ‛I had the operation,‛ she laments, ‛why do they keep doing tests?‛ She says if she still feels this poorly at the wedding, she will not be able to walk in the mothers' candle lighting ceremony.

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


Ep. 58 - Page 2 of 2

Deleted... class ul That evening at the school grounds, Myeonghui leads Cheolsu and Cheolsuk in skipping rope. Painful to watch... Cheolsu wants to dole out the punishment to his sister but he doesn‛t want to exert the physical energy himself. Cheolsu and Myeonghui gang up on Cheolsuk, Myeonghui enjoying watching Cheolsu‛s harsh scoldings. Then she seems to feel that her husband is going too far and takes Cheolsuk‛s side?? Partner, in a blue sequined track suit a la Secret Garden, comes running up to join them, wanting to exercise with Cheolsuk. Myeonghui is getting the picture that Partner seems to like Cheolsuk and takes Cheolsu home to leave his sister and Partner alone together. Cheolsu, for all his talk about wanting to marry off his sister, does not like seeing his sister with another man, namely Partner. He seems surprised to learn from his wife that Partner is Ujin's former business partner, thus an ok guy??Ki-chang comes home and once again sees Director outside their apartment berating Yeonghui again, making her cry. This time Ki-chang can‛t stand seeing his wife picked on with such abusive words, throws his briefcase at Director then runs up and hits him with a flying kick. Yeonghui tries to stop him from beating up Director, but Ki-chang gives him a real beating.

Inside the apartment, sons greet them, Yeonghui cowers behind her husband. In the bedroom, Ki-chang lets off steam, angry at the whole affair. He demands that Yeonghui quit her job, doesn‛t she have any self-respect? How can she allow Director, co-workers... even the cameraman... to abuse her so cruelly? Ki-chang wants to go beat Director some more, but Yeonghui won‛t let him out of the bedroom.

At the Kims, Mom, Dad, and Yunhui sit in the back yard, having their final ‛family talk.‛ Mom wishes to live a long life because it is so much fun. She never dreamed she would see Yunhui married—especially to Ujin. She feels relieved and proud that she will be able to face Yunhui‛s deceased mother in the next life, that she has raised Yunhui well and married her off to a good man. Mom is looking forward to seeing the "pretty grandchildren" Yunhui and Ujin will have. Dad says all the right things, but underneath he is worried about his wife‛s health.

Ujin has called Yunhui but she missed it. She tries to reach him for a long time but he doesn‛t pick up. He is caught up trying to quell a major fight between his parents. Dad is determined to wear his blue suit with a bright red polka dot necktie. Hwayeong has a new suit for him, perfectly coordinated and tasteful, of course. She doesn‛t want to be embarrassed by him... he doesn‛t care what other people think! Hwayeong is determined that he will not wear a suit he keeps stored in an empty apple box! They escalate into a big pillow throwing fight, with Ujin going crazy trying to stop it, repeatedly saying that they can‛t act like this with Yunhui moving in.

At the wedding hall, Partner is the MC. The two mothers walk down the aisle hand-in-hand to light the candles at the altar. Ki-chang gets teary-eyed and begins arguing with Yeonghui. The little boy asks his dad if he‛s crying? No, since he has been writing the drama with Yeonghui, he is ‛more sensitive,‛ that‛s all. (LOL!) Later, Ki-chang and Yeonghui begin quietly arguing and the little son impatiently says, loudly, ‛Are you arguing AGAIN?‛!

Ujin is announced and walks down the aisle to the front. Everybody claps, oohing and aahing at how handsome he looks. Next comes Yunhui and Dad. He is sad, hardly able to give away his favorite daughter. As he gives her hand to Ujin, he sadly turns away to sit down. Yunhui calls to him, embracing him warmly, thanking him for all he‛s done for her. He tells her to live a happy life. The guests are touched. Even Ujin‛s father (in the suit his wife chose) cries, dabbing his eyes with his handkerchief.

The couple has written their own vows. Ujin begins, followed by Yunhui‛s vows. He promises to love her forever; she does the same, also saying she will never forget how much Ujin has loved her and how much pain she caused him. All the main couples in the family are shown, being reminded of their own marriages and how important it is to love one another. The bride and groom bow to the audience. Partner instructs them to show their love with a kiss. Ujin and Yunhui, both shy, share a gentle kiss on the lips.

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


Like nsheldon, I enjoyed the scene on Saturday night's episode with KiChang's youngest son scolding him for not participating in the family event. The youngest son has consistently been a shining spot in the scenes with that family, a great actor and a great character. I cracked up at the symbolism of the role reversal of this scene since usually it's KiChang telling them about behaving properly. For some reason, KiChang's behavior doesn't apply to his wife even though per the tent bar scene with his brother in law he recognizes his own failings. KC is also growing more protective of his wife, yet at the same time is till too harsh towards her. Undoubtedly he is on a path to have a better relationship with her... I still don't see her making much of an effort to be a better wife or mother yet. Now she's back to her homely and messy looking ways - there's no accounting for taste (KiChang liking that messed hair LOL). class blockquote Mecca9 wrote: class blockquote SuperRookie wrote:

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.
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.
Mecca9: Indeed. Ujin's mom as a MIL is a nightmare come true. Gotta pity anyone (Teach) who would marry into that family and have to deal with Ujin's mom... in Teach's case, live with her!

I do not understand why the daughter-in-law has to cook when the family has a housekeeper. The housekeeper has been there for years and knows all of the idiosyncrasies of the family members.

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


I have the feeling that Yunhui will get along rather well with her new MIL. Now that Hwayeong has let go and allowed her son to be in love with another woman, I don't expect it to be much of a problem for Yunhui to fit into Hwayeong's lifestyle. All she really wants is that the place be peaceful and a showcase of her style and taste. Yunhui is the perfect woman to fit right in and please Hwayeong. Ujin will probably have more problems with his mom than Yunhui will.

We have what... four more episodes to go? I hope we see some major changes in both Ki-chang and Yeonghui. If the 'moral' of this story ends up being the regressions we're seeing in Yeonghui and Ki-chang, I'm ready to drop kick it into the dumpster!

This has been a very weird drama. Sungu was such a huge part of the story, now we've all but forgotten he ever existed. I'm expecting him to show up before the closing curtain, but nothing is going to happen with him and Hyejin—that's all water under the bridge. I have no expectation there. I'm glad, too, to see Hyejin and Donghun getting along so well.

The story was okay for a while, but the last few episodes have really turned me off. I'm glad others enjoyed them, but I sure haven't. I'm sick to death of all the fighting between Ujin's parents. Worse, are the scenes of Ki-chang and Yeonghui. This past weekend's episodes seemed to be about 70–80% filled with Yeonghui's ridiculous blubbering and whining and Ki-chang's totalitarian behavior towards his family. And, I never want to see Yunhui's wailing face again... ever!

I hope this one ends with a major time jump, and we see everybody smiling and happy.

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


 I have really enjoyed the past few episodes... with the exception of all scenes between 3 sons' parents and Ujin's parents.. So I totally agree w/you Nchristi. I still mute them (especially Yeonghui). And I used to only dislike Ujin's mother but I'm really tired of his father now. Their squabbling has become just as tiresome as the 3 sons' parents.
