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


Ep 62 (Sun) - Final Episode

Granny leaves the Kim home early, before anyone else arises. She shows up at Hwayeong‛s, declaring she is moving in for the rest of her life. Hwayeong is fit to be tied, but has to act as though she is fine out of respect for her MIL. The end of Hwayeong‛s Reign is at hand!

Myeonghui has fallen at a public bath and bruised her bottom. Cheolsuk is helping her at the doctor‛s, declaring it is her unfortunate destiny to always be a manager—now she is Myeonghui‛s manager, too.

Deleted... class ul Myeonghui and Cheolsuk at a restaurant eating steak (Myeonghui‛s favorite). Myeonghui wolfs it down, even eating Cheolsuk‛s portion. "Oppa" calls Cheolsuk (Cheolsu?). They pick up some grilled octopus from a street vendor. Partner calls Cheolsuk and wants to go to a movie... Myeonghui disappears into a store looking at clothes. Cheolsuk gives her a reality check, showing her a brochure of how a pregnant woman‛s body changes... there isn‛t any need for her to be buying ‛cute‛ clothes at this time! Myeonghui shrieks in horror.

Mom & Dad Kim at their country house. Beautiful place... they eat noodles together outside and Dad declares he will do all the cooking for them the rest of their lives. Mom is happy at that prospect after 40 years of it.

Donghun wants to go get his grandmother from Hwayeong‛s but she tells him she is there to save Yunhui from Hwayeong‛s tyranny so leave her alone and stay at home with Hyejin and Rani!

Now it is Hwayeong who has to wait on Granny hand and foot. She laments having to serve her MIL at this age... Downstairs, Dad, Ujin and Yunhui make a pact to be united in overthrowing Hwayeong‛s rule. Yunhui doesn‛t want to take sides against her MIL, but they pressure her into it.

After the drama ‛wrap party,‛ Yeonghui waits outside the academy for Ki-chang. She‛s half drunk from the party but wants to take her husband to the small café they first went to when they were in college, their "lovers" inscription written on the wall. Ki-chang isn‛t going for this but doesn‛t create too much of a fuss. He even gets half-way tender a time or two. Afterwards, she is too tired to walk and he carries her home on his back, complaining all the way.

Dad Kim at the country house, going for a walk with Mom (it really is in the country, with few houses here and there). As they hold hands and walk, they talk about their lives together.

Deleted... class ul Hyejin at work at the gallery. She seems a little upset with something as she talks with the female assistant. In the outer office, the guy assistant opens a box... ???

At work, Donghun is giving a presentation before the board? Afterwards, he gets a standing ovation and commendation from the executives. Promotion? Donghun‛s underlings all applaud him outside and are happy. He calls Hyejin at work. ? Maybe he‛s inviting her to join him with his underlings for dinner and drinks? He tells her the news and she is elated. She steps out into the outer office, where everyone is opening the box they received. Must be from Sungu in Paris. The assistant hands Hyejin a large box of candies. She looks hesitant and sad. There is also a letter included that the assistant reads aloud. Hyejin goes outside and thinks about what he has written. ?? She walks outside the gallery, a small smile on her lips.

Hyejin at home with Rani, the new furniture for Rani‛s room has arrived. She has moved into Yunhui‛s old room. The new dresser, wardrobe and bookcases are cute and perfect for a little girl‛s room... Rani is ecstatic.
At Ujin‛s, Yunhui is preparing some lesson plans for when she returns to teaching in a few months. Ujin starts picking at her, snapping her on the head. He wants her to stop and go to bed with him. After he chases her around the room, he grabs her and ....

Downstairs, Hwayeong is peeling fruit while Granny reads and Dad sits there. They both want Granny to go to bed so they can go to their separate rooms without Granny knowing they sleep in separate rooms. She‛s wise to that, though, and insists that they go to bed first while she continues reading. Inside the room, Hwayeong tries to keep Dad away from her, but he jumps on top of her. Hwayeong starts crying...

Three years later...

Yunhui at school writing on the board, very pregnant. The boys tease her. Ujin picks her up from school. This is her second child. At home, Hwayeong is with their first child, a girl, who sits at Hwayeong‛s vanity and puts her expensive lotions all over herself. Hwayeong carries around her granddaughter, Dad sits with his mother reading... he‛s dressed in decent clothes. Everybody‛s happy....

Yeonghui and Ki-chang argue as the boys sit on the couch criticizing it. The little son now has a permanent and the older boy looks like a serious student. Ki-chang is still wearing his robe, arguing that he wants Yeonghui to stop writing. He threatens divorce again and calls the lawyer. What... again? says the lawyer. The two lawyers themselves have reconciled and live together now.

Myeonghui is on her bed complaining about her back hurting. She has twin boys. Cheolsuk and Partner are babysitting, playing with the boys. Cheolsu comes home... Myeonghui tells him to stop his sister from getting married—she needs her to babysit and take care of things for her. What? Married? This is the first Cheolsu has heard of his sister getting married. He‛s still jealous and possessive of his sister, as his mouth hangs open at the news.

At the Kim house, Donghun waters the flowers while Hyejin and Rani take pictures and send them to Mom via cellphone. She is happy to receive them as she and dad walk down the road together. The drama ends as they hold hands happily talking as they go.

Fadeout...

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


I thought this was a most satisfactory ending to this family drama. There were some very happy ones and a few that were going to be a little edgy in some houses. Very funny and very wholesome I thought. Loved the country place..no wonder they looked so contented.

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


The ending was a typical happy ending, but I too was mostly satisfied with how they tied up all the meandering relationships of the series. Like everyone, I loved the part about granny moving in with Ujin's mother - to keep her in check and protect Teach... gotta love Granny! Cantankerous on the surface, but she always provided a unique a sense of wisdom and guidance for all the family members.

It was funny to see the time shift 3 years later with Teach getting a bit of a hassle in her class with her second child on the way. LOL It looks like all is well in the San Francisco (Ujin's mom) household.

I laughed at the Soup Boy scene, his wife now with twins is, as to be expected, simply exhausted. And it looks like Soup Boy's sister will soon be getting hitched as well.... ;) Loved the Soup Boy Restaurant related scenes. Though after Soup Boy got married, their scenes were a bit less interesting since that story was for the most part concluded and the story shifted to other members of the family.

The final ending scene was especially poignant in the pathway between the trees, with the series concluding with Mom and Dad together, after all their struggles with the family and Mom's illness... they are together, bound by their everlasting love of each other and family. This is one of the reasons I got into K-Dramas and enjoy it above most other media!

This series overall was such a hit and miss series for me. Some episodes wonderful, some incredibly meandering or boring or annoying with all the shouting and towards the end, some stories went back in circles (such as in real life I suppose, life and relationships aren't perfect... as evidenced by KiChang and his wife's not perfect relationship). Some of the stories just either ended its course abruptly or had strange resolutions prior to the shift towards the ending phase, per nchristi's prior posts on the topic.

Still, for all its flaws, I quite enjoyed the story of this large family (which we do not see much in Western media) and watching them all grow and evolve with all these disparate relationships. It may have been another ending that follows the mold which we have seen before, but I was glad to see these characters grow into their various capacities and through their daily struggles.

nsheldon I too quite enjoyed the music in this series, it's probably my favorite aspect of the show.

Onwards to the next drama, I'm looking forward to it. I hope it's more consistent than this.

It is interesting that the twin sons of Myeonghui and Cheolsu had the same first names as the two brothers in "Happiness in the Wind." The names "Daehan" and "Minguk" translate to "South Korea" in English. Yoon Mi Ra and Na Moon Hee were in both series.

Yes, that was fun kid-naming back in "Happiness in the Wind." Besides the two sons being named "Daehan" and "Minguk," they had a sister named "Manse." All three names together in the proper order mean "Long Live Republic of Korea" (대한민국만세), a rally used in games such as soccer matches.

If Cheolsu and Myeonghui have a girl next, maybe they'll name her "Manse."

I really enjoyed this drama. Enjoyed all of the story lines which is unusual since there is always one story line that is annoying or boring. I thought the wrap up was done well and all of the loose ends were neatly tied up. Well done!

Choi Il Hwa, who played a pleasant character on "Hometown over the Hill," played tyrannical fathers on both "My Love, My Family" and "Cinderella's Stepsister."
