After LON, we'll likely get the new KBS daily drama "You're My Destiny" starring Yoona (from So Nyu Shi Dae (SNSD) aka Girls Generation), Park Jae Jung, Gong Hyun Joo and Lee Ji Hoon. It replaced LON in Korea.
There seems to be alot of people(including many,many people on other boards!) who seem to think it unreasonable that the writers of this drama did not allow Dongji to reveal that Baekho is Mansu's biological son from the start.There have been comments like how stupid/awful/weak/etc. Dongji has been to keep quiet...she should have said something before marrying mansu,so on and so forth.
However,many of us viewers were hooked by this drama simply because of the consequences of her silence.Grannie MIL,Su-ah,Jongsun,Seon-jae,we all grew to hate them,pity them(a bit) or,at least, harbor some varying degree of dislike for them mainly because they all looked down upon Baekho and Dongji.....you know...they're beggars,thieves,leeches,gold-diggers,etc,etc.
HOW would this all work if it was revealed from the beginning that Baekho was Mansu's son? Grannie was truly wicked in her thoughts and comments against Baekho and his Mom,practically to the penultimate episode;that's 171 episodes of mental/verbal ''abuse''.How about Seon-jae and his Mom?;how they belittled Baekho!! .....his temporary employee entry level,lack of education and so on.This would not happen to any great degree if Baekho was revealed as Mansu's son.Grannie MIL would have been doing backflips with joy to have a Grandson.She would have overlooked any inadequacies he had.Seon-jae would never have got in at manager level.Su-ah would have had to suck up her pride and called him OPPA from day one.
I think the writers did a good job.This show was an outstanding financial success for KBS.They deserve a pat on their backs.In my humble opinion,many of the members of this board seem intelligent and full of original thoughts and comments.Even these persons were hooked by the writers' storylines.
Kindly note,I do not mean any offence to anyone reading this post.It's just my two cents.
what was jiyeong thinking by calling him oppa. is she crazy! i can't wait to see what happens today.
We've got a whole fiery thread dedicated to expressing what a devil Seon-jae is.To add gasoline to the fire,we've got weak,feeble,Seon-jae-besotted Ji-yeong to get us all the more worked up coz this silly girl can't get over the devil! LOL
She lets him hug her,she looks longingly at him,she calls him OPPA,she seems to be cold to U-jin coz of Seon-jae........we'd better reach out for those anti-highblood pressure pills as soon as possible!
Jinju..should our posts be in the ''Seon-jae greed'' thread?
