I know this happened a couple of episodes ago, but I barely caught up with my taped YH episodes. I was bothered by one of them. Nayoung is offered a modeling contract but she lets the offer go because Kihoon throws a jealous hissy fit saying things like, I want you to just be my woman, blah blah blah.
Okay, the punk wants to ogle other women at the pool and the beach but he doesn't want Nayoung to model in a wedding dress? How much sense does that make. I don't know...Na-young herself said that it would make her rich and famous, but that she is willing to give it up in order to stay with Ki-hoon. I used to like Ki-hoon, but this episode made me very mad with him. With this manipulative tactic--he reminds me of a male Minjoo!
Grandparents from WML: "Are my words dog's nose to you?"
I wasn't too happy with that attitude either (though to be fair, it didn't seem like Na-young was that interested in the contract either, except that it was a chance to make $$$). He's as controlling as Mi-ryung really, throwing a tantrum if he doesn't get his way. Min-joo, when she doesn't get her way, doesn't make idle threats; she's quiet, and firm in her convictions (whether you agree with them or not).
I have to agree with you guys on this modeling thing; it was really disturbing. I don't agree that Na-Young didn't seem to want to do it--I think she DID want to do it and she gave it up for Mr. Spoiled Brat. He's been totally manipulative and cruel from the beginning--remember how he ran home to Papa and made her fret around with nary a word for--what was it--a month? Didn't even acknowledge her notes about her testing scores. I don't think she wants to get married yet, either. It's his father pushing all the time and Ki-Hoon just being lonely and wanting a woman to take care of him. The only reason she's not married to him yet is Grandma the Rock saying, "Are you really ready? No? Then wait." Over and over and over. I wonder if she's really in love with him. He's cute, in a vicious-teddy-bear-bites-your-neck-and-it-tickles kind of way, but I don't think I'd want to live with him.
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."
Ki-Hoon is pushy. How about when he wanted her to go away with him on a trip and stay the night. What was he thinking? Their customs are such that they barely kiss while dating (from what I can tell), so how in the world would he think that Grandma would even allow Na-Young to accept this invitation. Even if they stayed in different rooms, it would still not look right. Maybe he just wanted to push her into this so when she asked, Grandma would say no, but think to herself...hmmm, if they want to go away together so badly, then maybe we should reconsider letting them get married right away before some indiscretion happens".
