I'm not sure if I feel sympathy toward Hari but I sure do feel sympathetic toward Soi. Hari insisted on pushing herself toward Pangho; I could understand her interest in the child, she is, after all, studying medicine and he is a cancer patient. But why did she continue to pursue his father? Pungho was very clear in his intentions toward her and told her that he was not interested. She couldn't and wouldn't accept that because SHE wanted a relationship.
Her father will now pay for her choices - he is losing the woman he loves and who loves him very much. Hari is only thinking of herself . I still don't understand how much of an age difference there is between Pungho and Hari??? Anyone have an idea?
Maybe I'm looking at it from a wrong angle but I think she could have handled this is a much more mature way instead of only thinking about her own feelings. She has a very long way to go before she can become a good doctor and understand her patient's pain.
I feel sad for her father and for Soi and also for Pungho - if it wasn't for her pursuit of him, I don't think he would be thinking of leaving the city. Just my take and I admit, I haven't seen ALL of the episodes
I think you're being a little hard on Hari. After all, think what Sua would do…
Pungho liked Hari all along, but he promised her dad that he would stop seeing her if he (the doctor) would save San's life by doing his surgery. And that was only because the doctor had already disapproved of their dating to begin with, not because he didn't like her anymore.
Now we have Pungho wanting to take San and leave. He thinks that will solve everything.
Hari thinks that she should leave… and go to Africa of all places. She thinks that will solve everything.
And Soi… beating them both to the punch by stealing away quietly. She must think that will solve everything. I figured she was up to something by her attitude, so that didn't surprise me as much as how she fit all her possessions in that one little shoulder bag.
But I like all of them. I really don't think any of them are immature, it's just complicated. Really complicated.
So complicated that the coffee cups kept disappearing and reappearing on the convenience store counter in front of Pungho after Hari ran out.
I've come to love all the characters on this drama, and wish well for them. When I came in to the show, it wasn't obvious San was even sick. Who knew how far things were going to fall in the near future? Pungho's retching and headaches foreshadowed bad news ahead for him, San, Hari, and we, his fans. It just didn't help us Chicago viewers seeing these scenes right after wall-to-wall coverage of Sen Ted Kennedy's illness. I know this is only fiction, but I feel really sad for these very nice, very good people!
I admit I haven't watched much of this show because I can't take heartbreakers. But I do have an opinion on how I *wish* this show would progress. Everyone involved has one thing in common: love/affection and concern for San. This should be the one thing that guides their actions. IMO, they should make it a priority to take care of him. San and Pungho should move in with Hari, Soi and Hari's father (forget his name). Forget about disappearing, forget about Africa. This establishes a solid foundation for San. He has someone to look after him at all hours, he has all the medical care he needs, he has all the material things he needs, etc. This also allows Pungho to get the care he needs, and to preserve the father'son relationship. Soi could try building a mother-son relationship with him, even if San never learns she is his mother. Hari could continue to love him and care for him, and the Doctor (Hari's father) could act as a grandfather figure. I know this idea is extremely unconventional, but it would solve a lot of problems for the characters, and would prevent needless suffering.
