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


Ep 60 (Sun)

Breakfast - Hyejin is working furiously in the kitchen, trying to juggle feeding the family and getting herself and her own family ready for school and work. Donghun pitches in and helps her prepare the veggies.

Granny sits alone in her room, seriously thinking about her ‛plan.‛ She calls Dad into her room, telling him she wants Donghun & Yunhui to move into their own place and for Dad & Mom to move elsewhere, too. She‛s adamant about it, telling him she has plans for herself, as well.

Yeonghui awakes from her unconsciousness (3-4 days), discovering Ki-chang asleep beside her in his robe and wearing her flower headband. In the kitchen the boys are having cold cereal for breakfast, taking care of themselves. They are shocked and relieved to see their mom up and about. The little one starts crying, saying he was afraid she was dying. She is shocked to realize she has been ‛out‛ for several days... what about her drama script?!

Yeonghui calls the office and is shocked to hear that the director is ecstatic about her script, that she has sent in 3 episodes! Realizing Ki-chang has saved her bacon big time, she‛s all over him in gratitude, though he wants to keep sleeping after his marathon writing session.

Deleted... class ul Dad Kim at school, deep in thought about what his mother said... to move out.. and his wife‛s reaction. He calls a long time friend?

At the gallery, Hyejin is asleep on her desk. Her boss comes in and wakes her up, Hyejin profusely apologizing. Her boss is a woman who has always liked her and sees to say something nice and accommodating to Hyejin. In the outer office, Hyejin talks with her underlings.
Both on their way home, Donghun runs into Hyejin running with a bag full of vegetables. He wants to talk with her, but she is late and is chomping at the bit to run and get home as quickly as possible.

At home Dad Kim talks privately with his mother again. He has arranged with his friend to move into a small house the friend owns in the country.

At the mansion, Dad comes up for some water and sees the maid wiping the expensive brass dinnerware. (Must be washed by hand and constantly must be wiped to keep fingerprints off.) He realizes this is Hwayeong‛s way of ‛training‛ her DIL, musing at how clever his wife is in concocting torture for others. As he goes back to the basement, he mutters to himself that sometimes living in the basement has big benefits! He‛ll be able to stay out of the line of fire if he‛s in the basement.

Hwayeong is already miffed because it has been 5 days since the wedding and neither Ujin nor Yunhui has made a single phone call to her—a big violation of Korean protocol after a wedding, not to mention the personal affront she feels towards U&Y.

The doorbell rings at Yeonghui‛s. The assistant director has arrived with basket of fruit and a bag for her—which she gives to Ki-chang in the den. She waits on him hand and foot as he is thinking up the drama plot on his white board. She wants to ‛get it on‛ with him but he isn‛t interested.

At the soup restaurant Myeonghui and Cheolsu are having wine and cheese by candlelight. She‛s all into it, but Cheolsu is more worried about where his sister is? It‛s about 11:15p and she still isn‛t home.

Meanwhile, Cheolsuk is with Partner in a beer parlor, chug-a-lugging it down, wanting to get drunk. He tries to stop her, but she tells him she is lonely, that she lost her mother years ago and had only her brother. Now that he‛s married, he has no time for her and her SIL doesn‛t like her around. Cheolsuk doesn‛t want to go home. At home, Myeonghui is worried about Cheolsuk and goes outside to wait for her. Partner comes around the corner carrying Cheolsuk on his back. Myeonghui is shocked, and afraid of what Cheolsu will say, especially if he sees his sister being carried home on a man‛s back. Myeonghui gets Cheolsuk into her room, sprawled out on the floor.

Deleted... class ul Myeonghui is concerned about her SIL, surprising Cheolsu by taking her own cleansing cream and wipes to clean off the drunk Cheolsuk‛s face makeup. Cheolsu silently watches through a crack in the door as Myeonghui cleans his sister‛s face. Cheolsuk is saying something... talking about being lonely?? Outside, Cheolsu smiles, realizing that his wife and sister are finally getting much closer.Ujin and Hyejin arrive at her parents‛ house and do their formal bows. Everyone is happy. Later, Dad walks in on the exhausted Hyejin doing the dishes from the full family dinner. He thanks her for all her hard work and tells her he wants to talk with her and Donghun in his room.

Over at the mansion, the frightened mouse-like Yunhui bows to her in-laws. Hwayeong is silent until Ujin speaks first, then criticizes Yunhui for allowing her husband to carry in all their luggage by himself. Yunhui runs outside to get what's left. Ujin is not happy about what he is seeing...

Dad Kim tells his wife, Donghun, and Hyejin that they will be moving out to the country. Mom is upset. So are D&H. Mom looks miserable and tries to get her husband to change his mind. He refuses... it is already arranged. (Granny, in her room, looks very somber while she reads through a newspaper. It seems she is sacrificing herself for her DIL's sake.)

Alone, to no avail, Mom pleads with Dad about not moving away from the family—she wants to live and die with her family around her. Dad tells her he wants to be alone with her, just the two of them, that all she has done for 40 years is cook and clean for the family. He wants her to spend some time with beautiful trees and flowers in the countryside, breathing fresh air—a calm, peaceful setting. Mom is not happy about the prospect.

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


Totally agree w/you Nchristi. The family should just stay where they are and hire some help. I guess if you're the granny you're not expected to pitch in at all (didn't happen in my house though).

I will be glad this one is over and mostly because there wasn't a character that I found enduring... not one! I do/did like Ujin but mainly because there wasn't another character worth liking.

No one on the show was a horrible person (I was glad of that). No one to 'hate'. No one back stabbing or manipulating the others. However, there was not a single character who we could 'know' well. I always felt like I never really got acquainted with anyone on this one.

I hope the next one is better.

"Ojakgyo Brothers/오작교 형제들" started on KBS in South Korea on August 6, the weekend after "My Love, My Family" ended there. They advertised it during the final episodes on the video streaming websites. Baek Il Sub and Kim Ja Ok are in this one.

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


Ep 61 (Sat)

Yunhui awakens early and runs downstairs in her Hanbok to cook breakfast for the family. Over at the Kims‛, Hyejin is frantically making breakfast while trying to get to work on time. Donghun talks with his father, thinking he and Hyejin are the reason Dad is taking Mom away to the country. Dad tries to convince him otherwise, that the sole reason is for Mom‛s health.

Deleted... class ul The Kim family eats breakfast. Donghun is depressed. Granny compliments Hyejin on how tasty breakfast is. Donghun wants to speak up, objecting to his parents leaving, but Dad shushes him up.

Hwayeong on the phone with someone. Upset about whatever it is? Hwayeong comes out to check up on Yunhui‛s breakfast. It looks like she is surprised that Yunhui has made such a large spread. Dad comes up from the basement and smells the food. He‛s happy and begins snacking on it before they all sit down. Hwayeong says something criticizing of Yunhui? Maybe asking her to make something else? Whatever, Hwayeong is unhappy with her DIL. Yunhui runs off to the kitchen while Dad criticizes Hwayeong.

Back at the Kims, Donghun gets dressed for work. He‛s very unhappy about the family situation. So is Hyejin. They talk at length amid heavy sighs.
At Ujin‛s, Dad starts complaining about eating out of the polished brass tableware. It‛s like a memorial celebration for a dead ancestor! Besides, it‛s way too much work to wash, dry, and polish by hand. As they argue, Ujin tries to get them to stop... he is embarrassed by his parents‛ behavior in front of Yunhui. Dad, on the other hand, is trying to get Yunhui on his side, saying that her whole life will be cooking breakfast, washing, drying, and polishing the tableware, then cooking lunch, washing, drying, cleaning, polishing the tableware, then cooking dinner....

Ujin feels sorry for Yunhui and neglected... all her attention is taken up dealing with his mother‛s demands. He tries kissing up to his mother, then asks her to treat Yunhui well. This, of course, annoys Hwayeong. She knew there had to be an ulterior motive for his behavior... all for Yunhui.

Over at Yeonghui‛s, she finishes and sends off Episodes 11-12 of her drama. Elated, she runs off to Ki-chang in the bedroom, trying to cuddle with him. Instead, now that the drama crisis is over, he wants them to go to their lawyers‛ and get on with the divorce. As she is stuck to him like glue (saxophone music grinding in the background), the youngest son comes home early from school and busts open their door. What are they doing?! he demands. Then the other two sons come in. Funny scene. Yeonghui gets out of it by telling them she‛ll treat the whole family to dinner out tonight.

Cheolsu comes home from work to find Myeonghui sick in bed. Pregnant, but she doesn‛t know it yet. Meanwhile outside, Partner is walking Cheolsuk home. They attended the birthday party for one of their business associate‛s baby. Partner is impressed at how much Cheolsuk loved the little children and tells her she should have a baby herself. What? How rude to say that to a single lady. He tells her what he means is that she should get married and have a family. They have to discuss some business issues and start to go to Cheolsuk‛s room. Cheolsu comes out and throws a fit... how dare this man come into their living quarters. Worse yet, he‛s going to be alone with Cheolsuk in her room?! Making tea for Myeonghui, Cheolsu questions himself why he dislikes Partner so much? Seeing Cheolsuk‛s door closed, he throws it open and demands that they leave it open, taking the tea to his wife. Cheolsuk gets up and closes it... she can‛t think with the door open. Myeonghui gets nauseous at the smell of the tea and Cheolsu runs out to get something from the pharmacy. Seeing the door closed, he is torn between his sister‛s situation and getting some anti-nausea medicine for Myeonghui as quickly as possible.

Meanwhile inside the room, Partner is eying Cheolsuk. He suddenly leans over and kisses her on the cheek. She is shocked! Cheolsuk doesn‛t know how to handle this awkward situation. She grabs a pillow and is about to attack Partner, who is up against the wall. He tries to explain, apologizing. She starts beating him with the pillow when they hear Cheolsu coming back. Mortified, they awkwardly sit on the floor looking down. But Cheolsu has to take care of Myeonghui first. Cheolsuk has calmed down and realizes she liked that Partner kissed her. She says she didn‛t mind, she just wants him to tell her first (warn her) before he does something like that again. Partner doesn‛t know what to think, but Cheolsuk demurely picks up the business papers, ready to discuss business. Partner smiles... so does she. Partner, energetically and full of big smiles, leaves the restaurant. He receives a call from Ujin, something about their business.

As Ujin changes his work clothes, he wonders where is his wife to help him take his clothes? She is downstairs serving tea to her MIL. Hwayeong asks if she has finished all her work... Yes. Hwayeong tells her to go upstairs and rest. But Yunhui then takes a container of food down to the basement. Ujin comes downstairs looking for her... nowhere to be seen. He goes to his mother‛s bedroom, where he gets involved playing a game of chess to help her with a scene she has tomorrow. In the basement, Yunhui hangs out and eats with Dad. She makes ramen for two, with two eggs, and the kimchi she brought down for him. They eat together, Dad telling her that Hwayeong is purposely mistreating her (like she does him) and that they need to form a coalition against Hwayeong. Yunhui laughs and has fun with Dad (she seems to have more fun with these father-figures than she does with Ujin!).

Myeonghui comes out of the restroom like a zombie. Holding a self-pregnancy test that is positive, she tells Cheolsu and Cheolsuk. C&C are ecstatic. Myeonghui collapses to the floor, crying.

At the school, Dad talks with the principal about retiring. When Dad returns to his office with the principal, the other staff members give him flowers and wish him well in his retirement. A group of male students come in with flowers for him, too, expressing their sadness at his leaving, thanking him for all he has done for them.

At home, Hyejin is helping Mom pack... they are leaving in the morning. Back at the school, Dad leaves by himself. He stops and looks back at the school. Sadly looking at it for the last time, he heads for home. At work, Donghun rushes to the school to pick up his father—too late, he already left early. Donghun is very depressed.

That night, Myeonghui calls her mother and tells all that she is pregnant. Everybody is happy about it. Except Cheolsuk. Her brother is making her do all of Myeonghui‛s work now and she‛s not happy about that. Partner calls her and asks her out to a movie. Cheolsuk is ecstatic, but she doesn‛t think she can go because she has to take care of everything for Myeonghui.

Donghun talks with his Dad on the swing. More rehash of the parents leaving and how Dad wants to be alone with his wife—like a honeymoon. Donghun wants to tell the family about Mom‛s worsening condition, but Dad forbids it. It will only complicate matters and he doesn‛t want Mom to be upset.

Ujin has had it. No wife... again. He marches downstairs to find Yunhui alone polishing the brass ware. He grabs her and drags her upstairs. She doesn‛t want to go without finishing the work. He tells her she is neglecting her wifely duties to him and forces her upstairs. Dad sneaks up from the basement with pillow in hand, begging Hwayeong to let him in to sleep in the bedroom with her. She hears him but says nothing in reply, getting in bed, putting plugs in her ears. The scene ends with him yelling Hwayeong! loudly.

The next morning, everybody says good-bye to the parents as they load their luggage in the car and drive off. The camera closes in on the very worried and sad face of Donghun.

Fadeout....

Note: Tonight (Sun) is the final episode.

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


I really have enjoyed this drama now that the Art Director is right out of the picture. I think the writers must have realised they were on a negatuve track with that line of the plot. I agree that Father and Mother shoudl not leve the family. She will be so lonely without them to talk to and fuss over. It may be the best thign for her health physically, but emotionally she will be empty with just her husbadn and no children around.

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


Well, turned out the last episode was the best. Very clever of Granny to move in with Ujin's family to make sure Teach was going to be treated right. Also gave Hyejin and her family the house so they would only be responsible for themselves... and mom and dad living in the country.... so beautiful. I'd like to live there.

Writer and her husband stayed the same.. fighting and threatening divorce.. but that's what makes them 'them'...

Soup guy has twin sons and his sister and the music guy are a couple.

I liked the music in this drama.

Grandma is a smart old lady. Moving with her younger son will ease the burden on the Teach. Happy with the ending. Did not know the Soup guy had twin boys!!!!

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


The best part of this drama was seeing Granny move in with 'San Francisco.' I liked how she told Hwayeong that Mom Kim had taken care of her (Granny) for 40 years... Hwayeong will have to take care of Granny for ONLY 10 years.

What I enjoyed about this is that Granny's plan took care of both giving Hwayeong a taste of her own medicine, but also it was an act of love towards Hwayeong. It broke her life of spoiled self-centeredness, brought life into that cold mansion, and gave Hwayeong what she had never known, either—a warm family, including grandchildren for Hwayeong to dote on.

Myeonghui — guess she will always be a professional whiner just like her sister Yeonghui (the writer). It was so like Myeonghui to ask her husband to forbid Cheolsuk to get married—what will Myeonghui do without her SIL to take care of the kids (and house, doubtless)? I figured twins would show up somewhere in that family, but I thought it might be with Cheolsuk and Partner. At least they are getting married and Cheolsuk will find happiness of her own.

Ujin & Yunhui - All I can say is OMG. Two kids later and he's still acting like a fourth grade boy picking on Yunhui. Of course though she complains, she likes it, too. Those are two birds of a feather, that's for sure.

I liked the very ending, too. We didn't see Mom Kim decline and die, but the Kims walked happily through the tree-lined road holding hands, happy and carefree as larks.

As for the drama as a whole, I thought it had some big holes in it. It started in one direction, with Sungu, his deceased mother, her art studio, etc. There was a big connection there with Hyejin. We had a big focus on her family, her alcoholic father, wimpy mother, abused brothers—all struggling just to put together a decent future. Suddenly, that was all gone... as though none of them ever existed.

The story became more settled and mundane once Sungu exited the scene, which was a relief in some ways. However, could we have sat through six whole months of this drama without some conflict such as Sungu and Hyejin? In fact, when I think about how much I enjoyed the final episode, was it because the whole thing had become so boring and irritating that it was a blessed relief to at last see a happy, peaceful conclusion? The added zinger of Granny roping and hog tying Hwayeong provided the ending spice.

Overall I'm glad it's over and hope the next one will be more enjoyable.
