Golden Era of Daughters In Law - Episode 4 (KimJiCap)
How are these episodes so quickly over?! Oh ... they're only 50 minutes long. Okay, but still, I'm having fun with this one. Much more fun than I had for a while with KDrama. Good. Cause this sucker is 54 episodes long. What was I thinking??!!!
Dooly is in the car! She has road rage. Her mother is trying to get some friend of Inwoo to go look for him - oh wait ... is it the sleaze-guy? Jaehong? Oh yes, it is! Sleaze-guy would do anything to get close to Mijin, it seems. But Mijin isn't all that interested in that. She comes storming in, storms into her room, throws herself on the bed and has a rage-fit.
D'awwwwwwz. Both Boksu and Mijin cannot sleep afterwards. One because he is in deep trouble and deeply troubled about his troubles, the other because she is still very angry. Yes, I do think she has anger management issues!
He gets up and leaves ... but not before cleaning up a little in the restaurant and shouting at this mother for not doing things properly. And shouting at one of his other sisters, for calling so late and always bothering their mother. Alright ... anger management issues as well.
While he sleeps in his car, Dooly calls. She looks absolutely insane. They meet at the stairs at Namsan Park, or rather ... she runs up, he follows her - until she hits him with her handbag and he falls down the stairs. Jeezus, missus. Be careful of the goods.
But she isn't sorry at all, she is fuming: how dare he ask about the price of their restaurant! How dare he suggest he would have been friendlier if he had know about her wealth?! And off she goes to pull his ears! He tells her to stop being so violent - but he knew all along that she wouldn't be able to let this go. And BANG! She headbutts him .... O_____o I did laugh, though.
So he doesn't know why she took him home?! If you have dated a woman for so long, if said woman gives you hints all the time ... Aha. Now we are getting to the chase. So, does she really need to say it? Well, he says he really doesn't want to hear, but if she must say it ... and she does!
"Let's get married", she says. Her parents want her to, and she also wants to. She wants him. I get the impression that this was NOT what he was expecting.
Minji's AWOL brother Inwoo and Boksu's sister Boknam continue their over-the-top courting-game, which is masked as he-trying-to-get-her-to-finish-writing-the-soap. There is some funny bits, some heavy drinking, some throwing up on each other, some farting - and he finally delivers her to the broadcasting station in the morning. When she wakes up, her writer's block is gone. Alright, these two? They're growing on me.
Haha, this was a funny one. Good dialogue, mostly well acted (still don't overly like the Inwoo-Boksu type of acting, but hey! That's a small complaint), and the drama manages to make us like almost all characters. Even the two sad ones. I wish they'd be less sad, but I also understand that it will take us quite a while to see them less sad. 50 or so episodes. That said, I have an issue liking Boksu's father (who is just being a dick all the time). Of course, grandma is terrible, but overall, she is terrible in an understandable kind of way, being head of the family and all. The menopausal MIL, well ... she is the closest to the MILDragon from GoM, so I'm not expecting much from her.
