I really wish I knew where the episode number is featured in this series so I can tell you which one I just saw (in Philadelphia). I don't know how many behind you are in Chicago, but this is the big "feel good" episode.
All has been revealed regarding Jae-do's work situation. All the characters (save Nara) behave with gernerosity and support. There is an interesting quip about how at least it's not like the U.S.'s Social Security where we basically, upon retirement, get doled out a pittance over time. Kiwoong embraces his father, "I've always loved you, but I love you even more right now." VERY lovely father & son moment. This is a real growth moment for Daejung. She's not whining for a camera now and unselfishly helps with a party in honor of her father. Grandmother gives kudos to Minsook for her hard work the past couple of weeks. Sukhyun halfway apologizes to Jongnam -- that the watch incident was partially his fault and they spend a charming afternoon together where Jongnam basically introduces him to more "common" folk. Byoung-do smiles! Yes, that's right! He actually smiles in front of his whole family. He was reflecting on the additional "30 points" he mentally gave Sukhyun when they met (Sukhyun admitted his uncle was the parking attendent instead of lieing to him or acting ashamed). His approval of Sukhyun delights Haein and her mother, of course. Sigh. All is well in Seol tonight... for now.

I really wish I knew where the episode number is featured in this series so I can tell you which one I just saw (in Philadelphia). . . .
Okay, I just happened to get a good picture for about 30 seconds LOL and it flashed 24 - so I guess tonight Tues 1/24/06 episode was #24. Either that was the episode number or they just had some numbers laying around and they fell onto the screen ... LOL ... ;D
Thanks, Soapygrams, I'll try to be more attentive tonight! I sheepishly admit, when the theme song strikes, I begin to get into all that box rolling and the way over-the-top dramatic expressions on all the couples. I particularly like the haughtiness in Byoung-do and his wife when they pop on -- oh, and his bubble headed sister who clasps her hands to her cheeks and shakes her head like she just saw a butterfly float by and she's five years old! Oh, while I'm on the subject, did you ever catch Grandma giving Minsook a slap in that group shot of the opening titles? I'll try to focus tonight on the episode number.
I was just watching ep 88 on KBS's site, and there was a scene where the four folks in the office ("Cider" Park, Ri-rah, Kyung-joo, and Doo-man) are evidently talking about what's going on with Jong-nam, Hae-in, and Suk-hyun. They each come up with their own theories and suppositions. It reminded me so much of all of us on these boards!
Oh, and in the teaser at the end, Suk-hyun's arm is shown in a sling.
"Gotta run, Ok-doo. Your brother just beat up my son!"
OK, that's my own dialog, but Byung-doo sure is in a rage (he's been stewing about it for days) and vents on Suk-hyun. From the previews, I thought it was just going to be a simple sock in the jaw, but he really wails on Suk-hyun, leaving him with a dislocated shoulder
Ack! We went without subtitles here in Philadelphia for episode 34(?). I wonder if going subtitle-less happens in other places? This is the episode that follows Jongnam locking Sukhyan's key's in the car. Near as I can tell, she and Sukhyan exhibited self control and didn't lapse into a fight over it (even though he was very late for his date with Haein -- who seemed to be alright about his lateness). Sukhuan actually took (I'm assuming) an overseas call from the U.S. saying cryptically, "Hello. I don't want any trouble over this." Okdoo left her cafe associate in the lurch as she went on an art appreciation outing with Jaemin. I think Jaemin milked the "dead wife" lie by pointing out a portrait painting and began to weep (probably said something to the effect that it reminded him of his late wife -- of which Okdoo is a sucker). I think Minsook is blue because her kimchee sales are not up, and it seems that Grandma called Haein at work for some reason (probably to invite her to their home since she's supposed to be Kiwoong's girlfriend). Did I interprete that episode correctly?
You are hilarious Soju! Speaking of hilarious, I thought it a riot that virtually the ONLY time I've ever seen Okdoo's & her partner's cafe busy is the time Okdoo isn't there!! Most of the time the two of them are sitting behind the counter looking at their fingernails and changing the record (also amazing to me that they have a record player... but cell phones aplenty!!).
