. . . or not at all. How will he recover his memory? My guess is there will be slow glimmers, and then he will see a ballerina, and it will all come rushing back.
But that won't change the fact that he has two wives (I think it's reasonable to assume he's the same man, not a clone or something silly).
But how will the 'registering into the family' thing go? I would assume that Korean men are fingerprinted when they serve in the Army, which they are all required to do. But his new father-in-law seems to be ready to pay under the table to smooth things out. Or now that he has heard Hyun-pil is nosing around, will he have second thoughts? Or will it strengthen his resolve?
It will probably be little by little. Something interesting from episode 6 was that Hyun-pil was trying to pressure Hyun-ja to return Sang-jin/Young-tae. It doesn't surprise me that he would do that but I can see where there might be trouble with that. I mean, Young-tae doesn't remember anyhting about his past. Even if Hyun-ja were to let him go, which she obviously doesn't want to do, would he want to go? Hyun-ja and his current family is all he knows. Would he want to go to a group of strangers? Considering how much Hyun-ja cares about him and has taken care of him all this time, I doubt he would just pack and leave even if he starts to remember his past.
I think it would have to be both. Once he starts to regain his memory, which we all know he will at one point or the other, he won't continue to just be Young-tae but so much has happened and changed in his life and the lives of those around him that I don't think he'll go back to being the Sang-jin of old.
This drama surprised me beacuse it picked up really quickly in the last couple of episodes. I didn't expect his first wife to find out he was alive so soon and his 2 wives to meet already. This drama is 50+ episodes so I guess that means there will be plenty of surpises ahead.
It seems that Na-young's doctor-brother and the other medical personnel will have a lot to do with the therapy he needs to regain his memory. I can't imagine that they'll be altogether unsuccessful, but as he said, it will not be an easy task. It may just take most all 50 episodes, but then which way will he go? Will his wives become enemies or friends?

In a preview I saw, it showed SJ/YT buying a ring and going back to HJ. With so much more episodes to go. I think they'll be alot more things to come up. Is SJ/YT going back to HJ or to NY? Hard to say? Previews can be such teasers.
Well, I think that if Hyun-ja was not afraid in the beginning, that she could of help Young-tae recover some of his memories as Sang-jin. Also, I felt as if Hyun-ji was a bit to over protective with Young-Tae. Some examples were when Young-tae would put his clothes on Hyun-ja would rush and help him and also the time when Young-tae rode the sled with Eunpyo, she was so scared like he wasn't capable of doing so by him self. In a way I feel like Hyun-ja held his memories away because she doesn't really allow him to do things on his own. It is only better for Young-tae to learn and make mistakes so he can recover. I mean Eunpyo gets more freedom than his own father.
Going back to Young-Tae recovering his memory I think that Minju or his mom might help bring bits and pieces of Sang-jin back. I think this because Minju and his mom really meant something to Sang-jin. I look back at the time when they showed Minju as a young girl getting jealous at her mom when she wanted to talk to her dad when he was away on business trips. Than I also look back to the memory his mom had and how he always had to rub his moms cheeks for good luck. I just hope Young-tae regains his memory because a past should never be taken away from a person.
