I know it's almost too much to believe BUT - not every couple has sex BEFORE marriage . . not every girl has lost her virginity before marriage . . although it does seem that those couples and girls are in the minority here in the USA. A little more restraint on sex might lead to fewer fatherless babies in this world --- not such a bad idea . . oh well . . I'm not casting moral judgment on anyone, I'm just saying that it really IS possible to have the marriage night be the first sexual act for a couple . . in the old days, LOL, that's how MOST marriages were.
I believe there were TWO kisses, mara, both unbelievably chaste. And, BTW, why is Lady Doc so upset over Suin if Miryeong was preg before she married Minsu? I guess they didn't tell her. Sometimes I feel like a dinosaur, Soapy. I'm worried what kind of choices my grandsons will make with all these nearly naked girls on TV and all the bed-swapping going on. I'm told only very young kids and older adults watch PBS.
And one more thing: what happened lst nite, Wednesday? Probably nothing eathshaking but I can't find the epi anywhere on line. I was wondering if Wimpy and Handsome Dad are starting to cave.

Thanks, puppy. I think I can say this as it's the NY/NJ thread so here goes, puppy - yes, Wimpy Mom - never really liked that name - did cave after Jisu came to see her and said she had to do something and Dad agreed as he was always going along with her wishes anyway. In the last scene, Suin's parents called them and asked them over and said they would bless the marriage as long as they moved in with them - that's how it ended.....But before that Jisu dropped Hiro's necklace gift down the sink drain so when she came in the office without it and Hiro saw her - he got upset and left but she went after him and told him what happened to the necklace and that she did have feelings for him - and they kissed. It seems like 10 episodes are uploaded to mysoju at a time so they're up to 90......
I'm a minority in more ways than 1 then lol! I'm a strong advocate for chasity; I'm all for the good old fashioned days. Aids, other std's, and unwanted pregnancies were way, way down back then, go figure. I love, for the most part, how relatively clean these dramas are, though the kissing and pursuit could have a bit more life lol.
I think lady doc, if she was told at all, would've accepted Minsu and Miryeong after many slaps and yelling because the baby was Minsu's. I asked my mum, out of fun, if my younger brother were to marry a divorcee who had a miscarriage, would she mind and the look she gave me shut me up. I didn't bother putting the whole scenario to her as she'd already said it all with the look.
So my question is to the mothers here, if you were in Lady doc's shoes, would you approve of the situation/marriage?
;DWell, speaking as a mother of a son and 5 daughters, I can most truthfully say that if my son was IN LOVE with a woman who had been married, divorced and miscarried, I would feel that all of those events WERE IN THE PAST. Additionally, NONE of those happenings were the fault of the woman, so how could any negativity about her attach to her? She was batted, abused and so severely emotionally traumatized that she lost the baby; that was her EX-husband's fault, not hers.
If my son looked at his prospective bride with all the love on his face and in his eyes as Huyun/Hunk does when he looks at Suin, I would feel so happy for him. IT IS HIS LIFE and he has the right to choose the woman he wants to marry and spend the rest of his life loving. AMEN.
I know cultural differences exist but perhaps the parents picking out the mates for their children is not always such a good idea - re: Suin and her ex. Most people agree that is the cause of many of the divorces that happen so frequently in Korea; and living with the in-laws , Although, some of my kids did live with me after the marriage for various reasons, it was on a voluntary and temporary basis. We all got along. ;D
I think Grandpa is so against it because he thinks his ex-DIL disrespected the family by not showing up for the funeral/memorial - no one except Gangster Aunt and Wimpy knows the truth about how Gangster Aunt literally threw her SIL out of the house and I sure hope that truth comes out soon so GA will get her just dues. oh yeah . . dream on . .
Thanks to you, too, mara! I'm going to check out mysoju only for the Jisu/Hiro kiss. I did catch last nite's wedding. How painful with all that waiting. I really itched to slap Lady Doc. She says she wants Hyeonsu to be happy then refuses to answer his call. What is WRONG with the lady?? I hope Grandpa sneaks into the church before the ceremony is over.
I didn't know Korea had such a high divorce rate, Soapy. I do know they drink a lot. Maybe it's all part of the same syndrome - feeling squeezed by cultural rigidity. They have to act out somehow. I also wonder if all this "keeping secrets" and never speaking one's mind, even gently, is just in the dramas or in real K-life.
Was away for 2 weeks and caught up on the eps this weekend. is there anyone who has not slapped Suin or Hyeonsu(-"the human pinatas") ?? I*t must be a cultural thing but I dont understand the parents treated these 30 year old adults. I couldnt believe it when Lady Doc told Jisu to go to her room like she was 10 years old. I know most of you do not like Sumi but I like her because she is the only one who fights back and speaks her mind without the I'm Sorry routine.
Suin wants to move in with Hyeonsu's parents? She is crazy! Just because they accepted the marriage doesn't mean they will be warm and loving like Suin's family - even Sumi now seems happy with Suin...
Then Suin and Auntie can have daily run-ins.
I really like the way Miryeong is subtly dissing Auntie quite often now.....and looking so innocent as she does it.

The things GA calls disrespect is truly amazing. If she saw real disrespect, she'd probably pass a stone. As a daughter-in-law, you're pretty much a servant and you can't speak your mind. When insulted, you must smile and ask for more. It's frustrating to see, even when I'm only glancing through these days. Did they say Chilnam's parents died? I'd sure love to see how she behaves around them as a DIL.
Who is going to put a stop to motor mouth auntie tyrade? Is she the head of the household? Everyone listen and says nothing when she starts her yapping. Suin is only doing that for her husband, lets see how he protects her.
I cant wait for Crazy Aunt to order Suin outside to stomp on the blankets with her feet. The only ones who talk back to her at all are little Sumi who just lashes out and Miryeong who does it subtly and then gives her the smile.
