It was sad too see Dad boozing it up after having dried out and living on his own. Woojin bursts in Dad's study, grabs the bottle out of his mouth, and then when his father tells him that he saw Andrea and that he intended to tell him what he did to his father, Woojin's only response was, "Not you too!"
Boo-hoo, poor me (Woojin)! Everybody hates me! Everybody is against me! Now how clueless is that? His old man is self-destructing before his eyes due to guilt over Andrea and his past behavior and all Woojin can do is think of himself! Ordering his father to stay away and not say anything!!! Boy, is this family sick!!
I believe that if Woojin's father met with Andrea, spilled his guts and asked for forgiveness it would be the best thing in the world for him. His guilt is eating him alive and is killing him. He's killing himself with that bottle.
Woojin is whatcha call "twisted." His personality is warped. It's true, he can only think of himself. Of course I have sympathy for him, because it's true that everyone does seem to prefer Andrea and worry about Andrea, but he just won't get off it. Poor guy has had some bad parenting and a dysfunctional family. At least Yuri said she wouldn't visit Andrea "because you're enough for me." Whether she was lying--I'm sure she was telling him what he wanted to hear--at least someone explicitly makes a choice for Woojin over Andrea, and, sick as it is, that's what he needs. It's not enough, but it's something--I mean, at least he can't say "and even my little sister likes him better!"
Yeah, it's sad. I wish he would just go away, and he's probably nothing more than a complication to Eunha (and apparently, at this point, the mother), but hey, in this drama he's a real person who exists even though there seems to be no proper place for him. His tragedy is that he knows it, and resents it, and it's driving him crazy. I feel really sorry for him but I also hate the problems he causes.
Do any of us know how we would really act in the same situation? I think he needs to forget Eunha and pay more attention to the girl that has been pining away for him. You know the one that helped Eunha move in.
I personally think I would act like Woojin (I wouldn't make the Eunha figure's life miserable, but I would feel the way he does), but if I knew there were someone else who cared for me, that would help a lot.

But then again, he Does know that that other girl likes him. Remember when he said to her, "Let's get married." He knows he could have her, he's just not interested. And the whole prostitute thing--it's obvious that he needs to get into therapy and take care of his problems with women. He's not fit for any woman--and that's what's so tragic.

I just finished watching this drama in YouTube. I must say I didn't like it because at one point it make me mad at all the characters. It was disturbing to see Eun-Haa and Andrea spending the night together, when he was a Friar already!
I don't thin Woo-Jin is a spoiled rich kid. He's a tormented person, who thinks he's lot "his" mother, he finds out that the woman he's been loving belong to someone, who happens to be his step brother, who had his life altered, because Woo-Jin's father sold out Andrea's father.
Now, if the paragraph above was difficult to read, image how difficult must be to live through it.
I was surprised to see the range of expressions Jin-Hee has. I think he's maturing more and more as an actor and has the potential to be a GREEEEEAAAAATTTTT actor.
