I had watched the first ep on VOD several weeks ago, and realized something was amiss right off the bat. Yes, this show is edited.
Ki-woong is late for his interview because he stops to prevent a distraught man from jumping off a bridge.
Later, when his mother has to make the mad dash to the bathroom, she hears Hae-in's mother on the cell phone in the next stall, arranging fo a delivery. Ki-woong's mom thinks she is asking for toilet paper, and tosses a roll over the partition, startling Hae-in's mom, causing her to drop the phone in the toilet.
<sigh> New show, but same old WOCH. With all this editing from the beginning, it'll be hard not to get confused.
WOW. Those are important points to have cut out! Not that they will affect the rest of the series, probably, but here I was thinking the guy was late for his interview because he was just a big screwup. It is stupid in the extreme to cut out an event that establishes the character in the first episode and whose absence makes the audience think something else. I thought he was lying to the interviewer. So not only is he not necessarily a habitual lollygagger and liar, he's also something of a hero!
And the TP thing had me totally confused. I thought, "What the h--- is she talking about: toilet paper? Who cares?"
Yeah, it was a big relief to me that so far there aren't any stupid love triangles! I'm shellshocked after "My Sweetheart" and "One Million Roses" and "Phoenix." (Etc.) Looks like a "work triangle" is in the mix now, though. Kiwoong will be working at his relatives' company and they don't really want him there. So it's Kiwoong and his family, the company, and the other family in the "triangle." I like that it's a home-shopping channel; that will be a fun business to have as a setting. You would have thought the amusement park in "OMR" would have made for some fun, but it didn't really.
I'm cautiously optimistic about this one. It is pretty funny, and I really REALLY appreciate that it's lighthearted, at least so far. Wasn't it silly how the presenter on the home shopping channel just kept repeating the same pitch over and over about those ridiculous weight-loss shoes?
That Grandma is something else. Always complaining and criticizing the daughter-in-law. It was funny when she said, "you never visit so-and-so," and the DIL answered, "I just got back from there." Grandma was at a loss and ended up remarking on the weather.
