Lucy, they're referring to Hosea's mother. She's the one I voted for in the Angry Moms thread. I said she was only interested in what SHE wants and does not care at all if anyone else suffers because of her choices and/or decisions.
Because this show was moving so slowly, I did read a few spoilers. I won't say anything more about that.
But this woman is the WORST mother, even Screechy Mom had her human times. I don't think Hosea's mother is a real mother at all - she acts like Lady Jami from EOTS - LOL
I feel bad for her daughter Yuri. She does seem to only care for Hosae. I can't believe she cut Yuri's hair twice! What kind of mother does that? That's a personal attack.
I feel bad for her too. Her mom hugged Hosea when he went to the states, she did not get one.. How weird!! She is always worried about Hosea and Yuri is ignored. No wonder she acts out!
Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is more than verses on valentines and romance in the movies. We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true, the most important thing in our lives. For love is the creator of our favorite memories and the foundation of our fondest dreams. Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent............
I guess MJ is one of those Asian women who were born pre-70's who seem to favor their sons over their daughters.....Continuing the family surname is important to them?
True story:My Mum's Chinese friend was hospitalised for a month.She had 5 children;3 girls ,2 boys.The girls took it in turns to stay with her at the hospital in 3 eight hour shifts,each and every day.However,once her eyes opened each morning and after each of her naps,the first words to always come out of her mouth were "Richard,Peter are you there?"(yup,you guessed it,her two sons' names!)Needless to say the sisters were upset.The worse thing was that the sisters had to practically blackmail their brothers into visiting their Mum each week.LOL ;D
Probably more like your sons (especially the eldest) will take care of you in your old age, but your daughters will take care of someone else's parents.
Ha..Ha.. ;D It's funny you post that because that's precisely what Richard doesn't do.Whereas his sisters take care of both their own Mum and their respective MILs.
Fictional point of reference...In Kdrama,My Rosy Life(the one where the lead actress suffered from cancer and in the end her husband,who was 5 years her junior,really looked after her),her brother made all sorts of excuses and broke his promise to look after their father after furthering his studies in the States.
In YAMD,Granny is looked after not by her real son but by her DIL and her step son.Hmmm.For all intents and purposes,I guess he'll be on the family register and he is the Older son.
I agree with all of your comments. Min Jeong I have to say is one tough cookie. I have strict parents too and have no problem with it but I mean she is really extreme when it comes to her family. She has yet to smile in any of the previous episodes and the only time she did smile was during the time Subin had the potential to be her future daughter in-law. I know parents have the right to protect their children but it is like she wants to dictate Hosea’s and Yuri’s goals in life. Then with Hosea to me was the best example of the ultimate mama’s boy because he did everything his mother wanted. However, when it came to his love life it was a whole different story. I would of thought his mom would of at least cut him some slack and give him the opportunity to make a choice for his love life. It seems all his good deeds and obedience went down the drain when he disagreed with his mom decision on a girl friend.
Now we have Yuri she hardly did anything her mother wanted her to do but her mom pretty much just brushed it off. Now it seems with Yuri giving her mom the fake pregnancy scare it is like the worst thing ever. I understand being pregnant out of wedlock is a big no no but some of the things her mom said was harsh. I just wonder why MJ is so against the Kim family. They are such nice people and they worked in their household for plenty of years. I understand how social class can be so important but sometimes it is not everything. I guess there will always be a pro and con to everything and MJ will never be satisfied at least 85%. High five to her husband because he has a lot of patience and loyalty for his wife.
