Mikey, thanks much...I went to that site and posted. I don't think I'm giving anything away here since it has already been discussed that S & H have broken their engagement. My question was more a curious one as to Korean customs. Minsook and JangJae were quick to give back the money to Nara (that I guess Nara gave them) because of S & H's engagement? My question is why would Nara give them money? It was not their child getting married, but Nara's? Thanks.
Carly, it's part of the exchange of wedding gifts. Both sides of the family give gifts to each other, and the extended families of the engaged couple (I don't know if it's just the bride's side, but I think so) get substantial gifts. In this case, Nara gave a wad of money to Minsook, her sister-in-law (her husband's brother's wife), for Minsook to distribute to her immediate family. I think money is traditionally given to the extended family with the intent that it will be used on new clothes. At least, I've seen a couple of dramas where the characters specify that they're going to use the money for a new suit for the wedding.
Also, this money was from Hae-in's family. HI's mother gave it to Nara to distribute to her side of the family. And Nara refused to give any to Jang-nam, so I'm guessing that Min-sook gave up some of her money so JN wouldn't be left out. (We seem to miss bits and chunks here and there-some eps. are only 23 minutes long. )

Actually, seaoftears, the Philly board has tons of South Jersey viewers who check in regularly. You should stop by and say hello!
Yes, rather than posting spoilers here, where we are only on episode 88 or so!
You're welcome to discuss or mention anything that we're currently seeing here in Chicago, but please don't discuss things that are currently happening in the episodes you're seeing in South Jersey. (Notice Mikey's comment at the top of this page??)
If we are discussing "Peculiar Man/Peculiar Woman"--which airs Mon-Fri from 09:30-10:00pm each week--the Episode #(unless it is in Korean(!); is not posted in New York City... . ===I will not ruin it for anyone outside of NYC, in case you are at a different place...but (briefly) it is the night of "S's"(The Director's) Uncle's Birthday Party, and the Director does not want to attend because [He Feels The Uncle & Aunt (are just MoneyGrubbers)...but he does call "Y" to invite her 'Out'; she does not respond--so he goes home, to 'fight' with his "Father"[?] Ha!
