After seeing Hee-joo meeting with In-young, in a restaurant, it shows how childish and spoiled Hee-joo really is. In her attempt to keep Ki-joon to herself, she confronts In-young by eventually throwing a glass of water at her. All I could think of Hee-joo is a rich, spoiled brat. I really think that Ki-joon is right to avoid Hee-joo. In-young, whose mother died, has a lot more sense and experience in dealing with life than spoiled Hee-joo.
I just wish that Ki-joon would tell his mother that he has no real passionate love for Hee-joo. I think the writers are just building up a scenario where Hee-joo will become a stalker.
is it me or do k-drama's portray the rich as spoiled, childish, people with no morals? i was just thinking about hee-joo and then started thinking about jin-kook (before he met hee-soo) i dont know
any way i think hee-joo is annoying but she has been jilted. and not even that, ki-joo continued to pull her along knowing that he had feelings for in-young. he even made her believe that he was going to marry her. and from the way they talk on the show it seems like thoes two had been going together for awhile. she just dosent know how to deal with rejection.
Ki-jun better not think that Hee-joo is acting the way she is because that's how she is. He better realize that it was partly his fault. When she first kissed him, Ki-jun should have gotten the idea that Hee-joo liked him. He should have said, "Hee-joo, I don't like you that way" instead of "Hee-joo, I need time to think if you're my soul partner." By saying that, Hee-joo thinks that Ki-jun has feelings for her, but needs more time to think it thru.
I think that Hee-joo is a spoiled brat who's used to getting her way. I think Ki-joon is being subjected to tradition that places him in a position to marry her because of some attraction to her in the past.
I'm not Korean, though I've learned to understand and respect their traditions. I just can't understand why Ki-joon can't tell his mother or Hee-joo why he has no love for her. How long will In-young wait for him to solve this issue?

When Inyoung said "I have a glass of water too, you know." I really, really wanted her to throw it at her. But then I realized that Inyoung is too classy for that. I just hope somebody smacks Hejoo and really soon.
Grandparents from WML: "Are my words dog's nose to you?"
is it me or do k-drama's portray the rich as spoiled, childish, people with no morals?...
This sort of cliche isn't confined to Korea. We see plenty of it here, on American TV and in movies from anywhere in the world. Who hasn't seen the classic, rich-spoiled-brat meets poor-upstanding-hardworker, becomes-better-person scenario?
Also, maybe it's not much of a cliche. Has anyone noticed Paris Hilton being kind to others lately or sporting any good taste?
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."
If I were Ki-joon, I'd run far away from Hee-joo and his own mother. Hee-joo vowed to marry him, then dump him to make him feel her pain. She's young, but so spoiled that she's determined to make him miserable. In fact, she's becoming a really emotionally unstable character, just like Ki-joon's mother.
I know there's tradition about engagements, but Ki-joon has done nothing wrong. He's come to the realization that Hee-joo won't be his partner in life. He's too controlled by his mother to speak his mind. Any way, why is an adult man, who's working, still at home? Is tradition so strong that parents have control over who their children marry?
I think Ki-joon and In-young should marry, then run away to America to start a new life. Forget his mother, but In-young still has attachments to her family.
I'm so tired of seeing Hee-joo moping around in her room crying her eyes out over a man that doesn't love her. I feel bad for her too. Yes, Ki-jun is a big jerk for not being straight with her in the beginning. Hee-joo's a pretty girl and she should move on with her life. I say she should go back to the US to finish her studying rather than staying in Korea being depressed over Ki-jun.
I, too, am tired of seeing Hee-joo ranting and raving because she's determined to marry Ki-joon. Even her parents are having second thoughts about her emotional stability. The problem is with Ki-joon's mother who is using Hee-joo to bring more wealth and prestige to her family.
I think the writers are trying to set us up for a real crisis if Ki-joon marries In-young. Hee-joo and Ki-joon's mother will try everything to ruin their marriage. I think the lovers must do whatever they can to run far, far away.
