Okay, I don't get this, why did Seungu's mom say that she didn't want Seungu to marry Yunsa? She even admitted to Yunsa that she pretended to not know of Yunsa's feelings toward her son. Is it because she see's Yunsa as a daughter that seeing her with Seungu would be like incest? I can't find any other explanation for her attitude towards Yunsa as a daughter in law.
She says later in the show, but Yunsu was a good daughter for her, but not quite good enough to be Seungwoo's wife. It must be a complex feeling. She loves Yunsu like her own daughter, but at the same time, she still was not a real family. It's not because Yunsu is not rich, nor is it because she has no family of her own, nor because she's not worthy in some way. She did, after all, have to care a bit more for her own son. The beetle is a beauty in the eyes of its mother. She wanted the very best for Seugnwoo. Not that she discriminated against Yunsu...

Why would his mom think like that? I don't see anything wrong with Yunsu. I don't understand why she would think that she is not good enough for Seungu. I'm wondering if Yunsu knew how the mom felt and thats why she never told Seungu how she really felt for him.
Do you think it might be an economic thing? Ie., Yunsu wouldn't have any monetary or familial resources to bring to the marriage? I can't see that an unknown woman could be expected to be better than Yunsu, who has shown herself to be compatible with both mother and son.
Well, I'm not a mother, so I don't know how mothers would feel, but as far as I understand it, it's just that she wanted someone better for her son. What that 'better' means, I'm sure it's not money or family. Or maybe it is the family. Maybe she didn't like the fact that Yunsu doesn't really have a family (although she and Seungwoo and Seungjoon were like her family themselves). But it's more subtle thing than that, I believe. I do kind of understand what the mother might have felt, but it's really hard to put into words.

I for one have watched up to 14 eps. But anyway I really get annoyed at her MIL,
1. come on if the family invites her over for like dinner or to go out, she refuses and says she wont feel comfortable. (She feels bugged by their economic status, one family is rich and the other is poor. You all know what i mean!)
2. Another thing is if she knew Yunsu liked her son back when they were little. why didnt she do anything possible to make them stay together?
3. Last thing, her character is so vague, one day she like Sena, one day she doesnt!

THe way I see the MIL is that Yunsu is not the right "match" for her son. She loves her as a daughter, not a DIL. Maybe she thinks they're too similar. My gut feeling is that the MIL LIKES Sena - a lot, but she's so refined, she's not going to burst out exclaiming her joy - she too restrained to do that. Sena is a cute sparkle of life that, in my opinion, is perfect for Seungu - and the mom sees that.
As far as the interaction between the in-laws, I see it as two different sets of people. Sena's parents are fun loving, cheerful people who seem to love life (i.e., outgoining, unrestrained), whereas Seungu's mother is more refined and restrained. (Kind of like Seungu and Yunsu)
I'm sure Sena's parents feel constricted (confined?) with interactions with Seungu's mom and the mom feels uncomfortable with the "freeness" of Sena's family. Just two different lifestyles that don't blend together very well (in the parents, not Sena and Seungu).
I'm really enjoying this show and as always, I'm loving Jang Nara's performance. She's an excellent actress. Sena's dad was on a show called "Housewife's Rebellion" several years ago....a hysterical show in which he was a philandering idiot...he's such a funny, clueless guy.

--To donilpark...By the way, you were right about Sena's mother-in-law. We are up to Episode 14 tonight and M-I-L's character is starting to become more developed. We can now see that she really is very sweet and cares about Sena very much. She seems to know that Sena is the right woman for her son and has begun to show much more affection for her verbally (and by her kind and concerned facial expressions). We see that she really likes Sena very much and it is good that this has been brought out now. Thanks for your earlier insights!
Some days I need TWO pieces of chocolate in the afternoon..........
So, she's passed away. How incredibly sad. But what worries me is the possibility of this being what brings Yunsu and Seungu together. That would just be terrible for Sena and would be incredibly angering for me!
it could go either way. It is nice to have a program that you can't predict what the ending is going to be. Either Seungu will go with Yunsu because she is the love of his life and his mother was a force keeping them apart. Or this could be a signal of another shift and Sena and Seungu make up because at the beginning of the show they had a hospital scene that made up Sena's mind that she wanted to continue getting married to Seungu and they could be doing a symmetry thing. Seungu may also go back to Sena because she will provide him stronger support during his time of need whereas he has to support Yunsu. Or he could go back to Sena because he may think that he can't go against his mothers wishes so soon after death.
