Yeah... There's no such thing as secret. He keeps meeting up with Yunsu, and sooner or later, all that's going to reach Sena's ears. He just has to go cold turkey, but I guess that's easier said than done.
Sena married Seungu knowing that he loved someone else, but its a different story when the love of his life is always in his life. So I feel bad for Sena. Here she is watching Seungu and Yunsa be so close all the time, and her knowing that this is the woman whom he loves. I don't know if I could handle a situation like that. And why did Seungu say that Yunsa was like a sister to him? Why is he lying? Is he only saying those things to make Sena more comfortable?
On the other hand Seungu is trying, even letting go of his pride and accepting the house and car, and there are times when he is just so cute towards Sena. But when Yunsa is in the picture it's different.
Donilpark, I have to tell you I do like this drama. I just hope that Seungu does end up falling in love with Sena.
Yunsa was like a sister to him? Why is he lying? Is he only saying those things to make Sena more comfortable?
Did it sound like a lie to you? Because as far as I could tell, he was telling the truth. In fact, he never lies, not a single time in the entire show. That's a part of his character. (which effectively contrasts with that of Jinhee, just like Yunsu and Sena are contrasted. We'll come back on this point later) That's why he can't tell Sena he loves her even though it's just a simple harmless white lie that will appease her. (or maybe not... lying about love is not that simple... but even after Sena goes so far out to ask him to tell her he loves her...)
To be honest, I didn't really understand his feelings there. He does love Yunsu, but it is also true that they are like siblings. Of course that has nothing to do with incest or anything, but his feelings towards Yunsu, is it like erotic love, or more like platonic? Because it really does seem that Seungwoo treats Yunsu more like a sister than a woman.
Anyway, I'm glad you like it. ;D

Yes, I agree, donilpark. I think he's so used to loving Yunsu that he's forgotten that the whole time he's loved her, he's been a boy. It was a longterm crush and a longing that was never satisfied. But he's coming to terms now with the kind of love that a grownup man feels for a grownup woman, and it's confusing to him. He is starting to feel erotic love for Sena, something he never expressed (or let himself express?) for Yunsu. Yunsu was more like his ideal throughout his life, and he never got a chance to love her as a mature man. So yes, it's much more in the platonic way, I think. It's all Sena's doing that he is able to try and leave behind that kind of idealized love. I'm not saying Yunsu wouldn't have made a good match for him, but that ship has sailed, baby. He's married, and Sena loves him like crazy.
I tremble to think what is going to happen when he finds out about Jinhui. Ay-ay-ay!
You just know he’s going to give her hell for it. Even though his transgressions have been worse.
yep, he's probably going to be upset that she didn't tell him from the beginning, but then again he never told Sena about Yunsa. oh and lets not forget that Jinhui has those pics of Sena. Yunsa will probably find them, just like Sena found her pic with the poem in the back.
Jin-hui is kind of a loose cannon, isn't he? He seems to be taking the building of relationships rather lightly, and playing games with Sena's life.
I'm still trying to figure out why he wants to marry Yunsa. He doesn't seem to be truly in love with her.
I think it wasn't very clear in the show, but on the official website, it says:
He is a cold and rational guy, but on the surface, he is more of a people person, with good humour and good manners. He seems perfect, but he is not a nice man for women. He always puts his work and ambition before love and because of that, does not want a serious relationship with any woman. While hanging out with Seungwoo, he meets Seungwoo's hometown friend Yunsu and get attracted by her tender and attentive personality.
He has been feeling lonely ever since his rather normal mother got divorced from his father by his well-to-do family. It seemed to him that Yunsu, caring and warm woman, would be able to fill in the void in his heart. So he takes Yunsu away from Seugwoo even though he knows what Seungwoo feels toward her, pretending ignorance.
Of course, he did this after considering that Yunsu and Seungwoo are so alike that they won't go with each other well. However, he starts to feel stifled by Yunsu's constant love....
Combine this character description with his behaviour so far in the show.
What is, BAE? I'm interested to know what you think. I think there is a confusing mix of Seungu first being tender toward Sena (and showing evidence of loving her) and then acting as though she's someone he only feels obligated toward. And Jinhui goes from jerk to lover and back to jerk with Yunsu. WTH? He tells her, "I thought you would look prettier," and she kinds of uncomfortably laughs it off? She obviously thought he was only acting that way because he was mad about her saying she would take care of Seunggu's mother, but even if that were the case, that would be petty and vindictive of him. I feel like the writers can't decide if he's even supposed to love Yunsu--the character isn't clear on how he feels about her or even if he wants to be engaged.
Jinhui should be a fashion designer so he could dress up pretty girls as much as he liked, and then also make them look like fools in ridiculous outfits, since he seems to have some latent hostility toward women.

I'm so glad Sena finally stood up for herself, especially when she asked him why he only thought of her feelings. And he's always telling her of things he never wants to see :
1) I never want to see you cry (HELLO--she has tear ducts, she's gonna cry!) 2) I never want to see you lean on anybody else (But the master of the house is free to hug and tug Yunsu?) 3) I never want to see you smile with another man again. (Her dad better watch out I guess)
I agree Lucy, I mean, I can't decide whether this guy is a jerk or just dumb. I think he's just too imature that it makes him act like both.
Oh and that whole Jinhui thing. I wonder if he was just supposed to be kidding or if he said it for real?
To a certain degree I kind of like the way the characters are written, I mean nobody is nice all the time, and we all have our moments when we can be jerks to those we love so it makes them more believable.
Grandparents from WML: "Are my words dog's nose to you?"
True, GC, they are realistically complex, but then, we are used to sledgehammer characterizations and it's hard to get used to.
Seungu is a little frightening in that respect. I also noticed that he keeps telling her not to do a lot of things. Don't do things you know make her cry if you don't want to see her cry! And for gosh sakes, let her laugh, no matter who it's with! You try making her laugh for a change, Diplomacy Boy.

The out of hand part that I'm referring to is about Seungu's nature towards his wife. He can't decide and it's like he's being forced to choose when the decision should be obvious. If it ticks his wife off, he should be kind and considerate towards her feelings without huffing and puffing about that. Also, Sena is a good-natured person. I think that she's right to get jealous and ask that Seungu not see Yunsu anymore because it's what any wife would do if they thought that their husband didn't love them. Yunsu should stay out of their lives all together. It's not fair to make Sena hurt like that, and it's not good for her to see Seungu like that either. Jinhui is one character in all of my years of watching Korean Dramas that I cannot stand. He's so outright blatant in the way he says things. There are some things that are meant to be said in life and some things to be kept to ourselves. I don't know whether he intends to hurt people when he runs around acting like macho perfection man, but he certainly comes off as cocky and not to mention much like an idiot! Seungu just irritates me the most because he doesn't seem to know what his wife wants and how to give it to her. He's just trying to get by by appeasing her and can't even say that he loves her. Maybe he doesn't feel it (?).

Bae, you are SO right!! He is a most despicable character. --And I really wonder if his 3-day "relationship" with Sena was just one more cold conquest of his. He seems to love playing with the lives of people like pieces on a chess board, just because he can. His face seems almost inhuman, his eyes are stone cold. He shows such a lack of emotion.
