Thanks for the great intro. I started watching this show mid-way through episode 7, but I live in Los Angeles (couldn't find a LA-based English-language board on this subject) so we're already at episode 12. Don't worry, I won't post any spoilers!
This is the first Korean drama (dramedy?) that I've gotten hooked on (mainly because I'm not Korean) and I love this show. I love Jang Inho's outfits and Kim Seongsu is so hot. I'm also trying to watch "Worlds Within," but it's not as engaging.
It's raining cats and dogs right now. Albert Hammond was definitely wrong.
Lucy, I think the character Jang Ilnam's ex-wife is played by the actress who played his MOTHER-IN-LAW in Chill Sisters, She was the lady who liked to dance, play cards and give him a hard time but in the end they actually cared about each other. She looks much younger in this role . . better dressed too LOL
Oh, yeah, Soapy, you're right. I also noticed that therefore Lee Tae-ran has been promoted age-wise in relation to her former grandmother (now her estranged mother). Yet she's still "almost 30." Ha!
I think it's interesting how the Korean actors, especially the older ones, get cast as all sorts of different-aged characters. Like the younger grandma from "Mom's Dead Upset." She's usually played a nice gray-haired grandma (she was Lee Duk-hwa's mother in one of the daily dramas a few years back), but give her a dye job and all of a sudden she's a 50/60-ish divorcee. (Actually, I'm pretty sure it was a wig.) I can't think of any other examples right now, but that's what was going through my head on Saturday.
Eunu and Jiu are great actors!! When Jiu got burned and she was crying and Eunu was crying too, it gave me chills!! I was crying! They are so CUTE!!!
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............
