On the Philly Board we have summaries for each episode (currently up to episode 20). As the episode airs in Philly I move it out of the spoiler forum and into the General forum. Each Topic is listed by the episode number.
Does anyone else notice a resemblance to Bizarre Bunch? Poor homeless girl accidently meets rich, arrogant boy. He borrows money from her and gives her his expensive watch in exchange. She tries to return it but something will happen to it. Any guesses on how this drama will end.
I was just about to post that gpaul. It is kind of strange. I pointed that out to my sister yesterday and she was like "don't tell me they'll try and pair Ugyeong up with Gukhwa. Will he end up like Cha In-bum? Forever gone from the scenario?" Hopefully that's not what should happen.
LOL! Certainly not, Gpaul! For he is featured too heavily in the marketing pieces!! We knew the relationship between Jongnam and the rich health product president from BB wasn't going anywhere. He didn't turn over the blocks in the opening title.
Yes, the formula for PIH is remarkably similar to BB. But before I got tempted to poke fun of it, I considered how American television does the same thing: "The Mod Squad" was a hit: spawns cop shows galore to this day. "L.A. Law" was a hit: spawns lawyer shows. Many of the medical shows, reality shows, sitcoms, etc., were born of successful originals, just repackaged. I myself preferred the "Adams Family" over "The Munsters."
Having said that... a watch?! C'mon now. Come up with SOMETHING different. His time-share on Jeju Island would have been a little more original... although, I don't know if one carries that around in their glove compartment.

Like everyone said, this drama is very much like BB right now, even with the main girl character losing all her money like Jongnam did. I imagine this is how she'll end up back with her fiance's family, now that she's really penniless.
I think it will fall out to: Rich Boy + Poor Girl and Poor Boy + Rich Girl, with all sorts of consternations between each other spread out over the episodes. So far, my theory on couples who sleep on floors have better marriages than couples who sleep on beds is still maintained in this drama! And Rich Mothers... will they EVER learn?!
Another BB similarity ...The WATCH... keeping the WATCH
Not only the watch, but the lead character sleeping at the store... Hummmm... The lead male character has the same characteristics as SK... Cold hearted, self centered, bratty, etc.... the only difference between them is their mother... He doesn't seem to be like a Mama's boy, while SK was totally under Nara's wrath. Oh! and the mom is actually cute and not evil compared to Nara.
I have to agree with all of you with the RICH BOY + POOR GIRL = POOR BOY + RICH GIRL theory. I also have to also think they will bring in the ex girlfriend of the Rich Boy, after when the Poor girl and the Rich Boy finally figured out they like each other. I have a feeling it's going to be BB mixed YH (when the ex girlfriend came back from the States) Wow! I can't wait!
You mean the girlfriend that spoke such wonderful English? They should cast her in a drama with Go Ju-won, speaking only "English" . . . with real English subtitles so we knowq what they're talking about!
Gukhwa is now living with Ugyeong's family and is on her second day of work. Having been smarted by her boss, Yunhu, for her provacative first day outfit (provided by Ugyeong's well-meaning sister, Usuk), our Gukhwa is now dressed in her sensible clothes and shoes. Yunhu is not satisfied with this either, so, he takes her shopping for a professional wardrobe. Simultaneously, Ugyeong stops by her office to accompany her back home and she isn't there. Are we seeing the first glimmer of interest from both of these men towards Gukhwa?
Yuhna's parents share an affectionate breakfast. This comes after an hilarious evening where, finally, after a long twin-bed separation, the night before they... eh, hem... get together. Yunjeong doesn't quite get the sudden change in demeanor in her parents, but her brother, Yuhna, figures it out and tells her to grow up. Mrs. Park seizes this moment to approach her husband about a reunion with their oldest daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. Is the ice melting between them?
Yunjeong has swiped Ugyeong's cell phone from work and is now holding it hostage. After a few days of vainly calling his cell phone with no answer, he finally gets a reply. It's Yunjeong disguising her voice as the unknown keeper of his phone, and our Ugyeong is eager to meet her at the Crystal Hotel (of course it's pricey!) for lunch. He uses the concierge's phone to ring his up and track down his ringing cell phone. Lo and behold! His nemisis... the Rich Girl! She proclaims that he is the ONLY person to have ever blown her off and this will not be countenanced. She is back on her "gimme driving lessons" kick, but do we think it's more than driving lessons she is after?
Uncle Punggu has now discovered the whereabouts of Choi Hyesuk, however, he does not know that Grandfather fancies her as well. He spends a touching evening with her, letting her know he likes her for more than the "elegant, rich woman" presentation she gave in singing classes. He plays his sax for her, they drink too much that evening and Hyesuk suffers the next morning. The result is Grandfather worried as to why her diner is not promptly open the next morning. She tells him it's an oncoming cold, and what would make her feel better are those lovely millet cakes that Okgeom used to make for her when she was her maid. Of course Grandfather is happy to accommodate -- and demands that Okgeom make them for her. This sends Okgeom into tears as she speaks of it to her husband. Maybe we'll see a show-down between Mrs. Choi & Okgeom?
Wow, Teresa, did anyone else in the family know her when she was rich, besides Okgeom?
On the previews yesterday at the childhood friend's apartment, Rich boy's mother and Orphan girl seem to be getting off to a bad start. Looks like they will each think the other is the maid, and Why isn't she working?! Whyever does the mother have a key to nice working girl's apartment?? (Sorry about not learning the names yet.)
