Yes! Thanks for putting my discomfort into words, Lucy! The latest wrong thing he did was yell "Farm Girl" at her in the hallway at her college. What an ass. She's in a new place and he has to embarrass her. Every other place she goes, people know her history and how she's been put down. Can't she make a new start at college?
Is he asserting ownership here? "I'm the only one who values you (and I'll make sure that continues). Jerk.

Lucy made a good point that we're not really supposed to find fault with any of what is being said or done on this show. I didn't find anything too wrong in it, except for maybe that Yunhu's just a really cocky guy. But, it's good to hear someone else's view that it could also be a BAD thing. Not to mention annoying. He DOES belittle her, so how does he expect others to accept her? Ugyeong's the only one who makes anyone on this show feel like they're worth something. Yunhu could take a few pointers!

;D I think he's just teasing her without realizing that he is disrespecting her - calling her by his "pet name" for her in the hallways at college isn't making her happy tho. Perhaps he will soon understand that and quit doing it??? One can only hope. I do think he loves her tho and if he wants to call her by that name, he should reserve it for the times they are alone and not out in public where she might be embarrassed by it. JMO
Bear in mind that someone on another thread once said that Yunjeong was his ideal woman: beautiful, not too smart, and devoted to her man above everything. I didn't say anything there, because it's just an opinion, but inside I was like, "huh, so you agree with Yunhu and Ugyeong that that's what's important in a woman, then?" I feel that the portrayal of these women as cute objects (and their treatment as such by the male characters) kind of harms us all, albeit in a small way. The fact that he doesn't realize he's disrespecting her is just as bad, IMO.
He does seem cocky, I can't imagine him pulling any of that on Sinhyeong, who in my opinion was the right girl for him.
Gukhwa is almost as bad. Her only comeback is "Stop being such a little child", but at least I don't remember her ever calling him or anyone else "stupid". YH does that almost every episode now. Getting old.
