ohhhhh thanks for clearing that up, Ducky. I wondered whether the translation for their relationship was the problem. Oh okay, in that case, things make sense, kinda.. This is the one drama I'm keeping myself away from spoilers because I heart it too much.
Also, the drama spans about 30 episodes and the adult versions of out beloved younger characters show up around the 9th episode.
This is just speculation, but the double-headed heart 'arrow' going in between Keum-shil and Kyung-min must mean that Keum-shil isn't the daughter of Chundong but the child of that Politician. Otherwise, it would be yucky!
When Chung-dong and Keum-shil's mom got married, Keum-shil was already like 4 or 5 years old...They call Keum-shil Kyung-min's step sister, not his half sister...It's still a little weird but did they ever really say who the daddy was???
Yes, somewhere around episode #15, it’s brought up in casual conversation that Keum-shil’s biological father was killed in (I think . . .) a fishing accident.
Up until then, I had always mistakenly thought that she was a half-sister to the other kids (rather than a step-sister).
However, it hasn’t been made clear (yet) if her father was actually the dead fisherman, or is instead Senator Park.
Oh wow...gotta love those love triangles! Is this spoiler thread official yet?
~*~*~Spoiler Discussion!*~*~*~*~ * * * * * * * It looks like Kyung-sook is in a love triangle with that guy who's father is running in politics. But he's involved with that girl that he sang and played the guitar with. And that guy who rides the bike in the first episode...it looks like he likes Kyung-sook too! And Kyung-yu and his childhood friend are so cute together! I don't see a love triangle for these two. So Keum-shil and Kyung-min like each other. I think that's great (now that we know they are not blood-related). But Keum-shil is also loved by that chubby-cheeked little boy in the future! I really like this show! * * * * * END of spoiler discussion
They better do a lot of background for how their lives develop because otherwise we'll be left lingering a lot and left to figuring out what happened in between all those years. Things don't look good though. I think Jongkyu (is the guy Kyungsook likes) disabled it seems. He also appears to have a wife and child! This is scary stuff....
Soonshik is so adorable in a cuddly kind of way. When he smiled, after talking to Keunshil on the phone, I was reminded of his little boy smile. These adult actors are really good. They have the personality and mannerisms of the small children, yet they are all grownup.
