I know . . . maybe there will be flashbacks, though, Kathleen! The only one I'm looking forward to seeing grown up is the daughter, Kyungsook. I have grown not to like the actress very much--I mean, I don't dislike her, but her range is very limited. And she's going to grow up into Park Sol-mi, if I'm thinking correctly, and that's a good call. Even though the younger version is too old to justify casting an actress who's not all that much older, still I like Park Sol-mi, and her cheeks are like those of the younger girl.
Yes, the grown up Kyung-sook will be Park Sol-mi. I am so excited to see Park Sol-mi in this role! She was so manipulative and conniving as Che-rin from WLS and I'm guessing her character in this one will be kind-hearted.

It's going to take some getting used to, that's for sure. Luckily they did show some flashbacks tonight so we could see those cute children again. I'm sorry that Keumshil grew up to be a spoiled brat but I have to commend the casting director on his choices for these kids as adults. Not only do they physically resemble the younger actors, but the adult actors really got the mannerisms of the kids down pat. Their personalities remained the same.
Happy Camper, you took the words right out of my mouth. I have a new respect for Park Sol-mi. She is acting exactly like her younger counterpart! The brothers, too, but Sol-mi is the best. The younger brother is making me laugh so much. It's easy to see that little boy in him. What a cheeseball he was DJ-ing at the cafe! Oh, and I commend the adult chubby boy--what is his name? Sangsook? Shinsook?--he is great. I can only think that the adult and child actors spent much time together working on their characters. "Golden Apple" boot camp, maybe.
But yeah, it is going to take a while before I get used to the new scenario. Everything about the first 6-7 shows was different. Even though the events were bad, the location shooting and the light and all gave it a ready-made nostalgic air. However, I must also commend the director on that street riot. It was one of the best such scenes I've seen. It was exciting and scary without making me dizzy.
Keum-shil was funny. The grownup, of course, is not anywhere near as charming as the child, but she sounds exactly like her when crying.
