Does Stalker Girl Chow Fun think the way to win Hyeonsu's heart is to force him to get rid of Suin as a writer?? She is delusional. I agree with Puppy-- I like Jisu and Hiro, the young girl and her goofy "boyfriend" and the young doc's ditzy wife more than the story line of another pair of star crossed lovers who really love each other but one of them has to deny it.
Dorrie, I know that Suin's dad is her real one but isn't her real mom the elder doc's dead brother's wife. No wait, that's Jisu. Sorry. OK, so who is Suin's mom? Not her real dad's wife, right? Sooo confused.
So true dodgerman! Chowow is dilusional in regards to Hyeonsu, this now seals the deal that HS will not give Chowow any chance in hell. Is she aware that the man she is talking to is Suin Dad's? The meeting should come to an abrupt ending due to her rudeness and sticking her nose into matter that does not concern a sponsor. Look forward to hear what the both of them will say.
Yes, the birth parentage of Suin and Jisu is extremely confusing......I started watching Kdrama with Bizarre Bunch and it seems that every one that I have seen has as part of the plot a child being adopted. Does anyone know what this is such an issue in Korea? How common can it be?
Maranyc! It is quite common in Korea, they treat their children as disposable nappies, more children in Asia is either abandoned or given up for adoption, that goes back to centries, the Japanese occupation, the Korean, American, Chinese wars, that's when the laws was put inplace that Asians cannot marry same person with last name because they may be marrying their cousin or aunts. People who want a better life gives up their child/children and never to think of them again, only when its convient for them. So, yes it is very, very common. (you can check it out in google).
Grandpa's lady friend confused us all. In the episode where she met Suin, she said to grandpa that Suin looks so much like Seoyeong, who is Jisu's birth mother. Now we've come to find out that Seoyeong isn't Suin's birth mother at all so I guess that statement made by Grandpa's friend was to throw us off. lol
That remark threw me off too, brooklyn. I started to think that maybe Suin and Jisu are related (sisters?) Didn't the poor auntie say that the dead brother's wife "left town" so to speak abandoning her baby daughter (Jisu) to the lady doc to raise? And didn't Suin's adoptive mom tell Suin that she too had had a child "out of wedlock"? That couldn't be Jisu since she was married to the brother who died when Jisu was born. Maybe the man we think is Suin's real dad isn't after all and he adopted her as an infant from an orphanage and she's really is Soyeong's kid. That's farfetched, isn't it? Maybe...no, forget it. Sooo confused.
The writers are confusing us because they know we will reveal the parentage to soon. Jisu Mum is Suin mum. Again the secrecy in family rear its ugly head. Jisu father is the brother of the doctor, the Mum, is Suin Mum, why did she give up driving? Why does'nt she wants any of her children driving? Remember she came to the family already preggy, men cannot go into birthing rooms, so the Mum gave the daughter to the father's family and told the daughter she died. Wild guess Suin and Hiro related??!!!
Grayson, I am not sure exactly what you're saying. I thought that Jisu was given to her uncle and aunt after her father died. I don't think it's her mother who willingly gave her up, I think it's the aunt (the one who just bought the cab) who orchestrated this.
This is just my assumption, No, Jisu mother did not willingly give her up. Jisu was given to the parents she now have by her maternal grandmother upon delivery of her birth. The maternal grandmother then told her daughter the baby died, so she can go on with her life, but yet again the mother did not want her daughter to marry her now husband because he had a daughter. These are just bits and pieces I've collected over the conversations among partners.
Last night again the lady doc said marriage is a union of families and has nothing to do with love. I guess older Koreans truly believe this since so many K-drama plots are based on it. The whole concept seems feudal to me like when the king of X married his daughter to the prince of Y for the sake of a military alliance. It also might be why the divorce rate is high in Korea (I read that somewhere) compared to other countries that that frown on divorce and why we see a lot of marriages in these stories that either don't work or work out only after years of being together.
And now to ChowChow and the lady doc. What a pair. I can't dercide if we're meant to see them as bad because the lady doc does have good points (and I get a kick out of this actress) and ChowChow's motives are for love. She says she wants to back out, give up, but is pulled in. I like characters that have two sides. They're not as boring as, say, the MIL in YAMD.
I think this obsessive love plot is also way over the top. We see this in so many dramas -- it's truly ridiculous. The documentary producer (sorry, I don't have his name yet) couldn't have been more clear and yet Chowon insists on him getting to know her. He doesn't want to, that's it. It's bizarre that the writers have her chasing after him.
These young women do go after what they want and enlist the proposed MIL to help. (Subin, Chowon) They fall in love too fast like brooklyn says. That HAS to be a pure physical attraction. But when the guy doesn't respond, they seem to think thay can force him to once he "gets to know" them. (the ten date thing) Well, they certainly didn't take the time to get to know the guy! And of course, the MIL in cahoots says, "Once the ring is on your finger and the first kid comes along, he's a hooked for life." What a different culture!
But look at it this way, if there was no Chowon the Hyeonsu/Suin romance would be BORING.
