Well the truth finally came out about Yeon-ho's grandfather stealing Tae-woong's family's money. Tae-woong's mom should get the overacting award for that scene. I know she's supposed to be upset, sad, mad, etc. (I'm sure anyone would be if you just found that the reason you're broke is because someone you trusted stole your money) but that sounded more like a rooster crowing than anything else.
Also, it was foolish of Tae-man to just walk right into a trap without a plan. I guess he should consider himself lucky that all he got was a beating and that Soon-ho wasn't harmed.
Now that the truth about the money has been revealed, I guess all that's left is the matter of Tae-woong's illness.
I got the feeling that Ok-hee was acting in a kind of "ritual grief" type of way. Have you noticed the way people act in Korean dramas in certain situations--like when they're really angry, they'll push and push ineffectually at the person they're mad at? Ok-hee does that a lot, and I think Jung-ran did it to Yon-ho when YH and TW wanted to get married.
But yes, that pitch of her voice could etch glass!
The one I thought was really overacting was the grandfather--that high voice and all the crying; wow, I wouldn't forgive him, either. This guy left Ok-hee's father in the gutter to die and took all his money--thus consigning Ok-hee and her family to a life of struggle--and apologizes 30 years later. But how does he do it? He acts like a big baby. Not a very convincing display of manly regret--more like, "comfort me, I'm sorry!"
i agree that tae won's mom overeacted, but i soo agree with you eyego these last episodes have been really great, i almost wanted to cry when tw was talking to yh in the park, saying that he was scared to die, wasn't that just the sadest thing you've ever seen?

I'm actually going to go ahead and disagree. I don't think Ok-hee was overreacting.
Think about it, you are informed that the you were forced to live in misery thanks to an ungrateful bastard who not only took your family's fortune but also left your father dying on the curb. Add to this the fact that you actually grew up knowing and admiring the guy, the fact that they have rejected and humiliated you because you are poor, even though they know that they were the ones who put you in that situation. I would have busted some ear drums!
