Truth-time on the rooftop (which isn't a rooftop at all). So, Boksu says she would suffer if she married him and would regret it. And, knowing her, he just know she would just run away because of it, turning him into the fool that has to go after his runaway wife - or burn it all to the ground. She absolutely doesn't see WHY she would do that while he is absolutely adamant that she just WILL. Sorry, but I'm on his side. I really don't like his family either ... even though I would prefer that one over his GoM family anytime.
Mijin howls on. She has every right to.
The Rest (There's a Lot)
Sad Second Wife is bitch-attacked by the menopausal MIL (who gets bitch-attacked by her mother, our Halmoni) one the phone and her husband falls asleep in the car, while she is talking to him full of wit and warmth. She is a gorgeous woman. But her life does really suck. A bit later she overhears the nurses talking about her husband's first wife. She hears how they blame the MIL for everything - and that her husband is not at all over the nurse. He, in turn, hears the nurses talk about the fact that said first wife isn't at all in America, as everybody has assumed, but in Korea. And ... she is not at all doing well.
Quite the opposite, in fact ... The sad photographer has a sad family - and part of that sad family is his sister, who is in a hospital. Why? For marrying a bastard. Oups ... that bastard is our doctor. Sad photographer's sister is the sad doctor's first wife.
I marvel at how short these recaps are. Oh well, I guess it's because this show has a lot of witty dialogue that I don't even mention? The Lee family is a hoot - they all seem to think that Halmoni is terrible. And they all bond over the horror they feel when confronted with the chose wife for Boksu. Boknam is quickly beoming a favorite of mine (if only she would stop pulling those stupid faces!) because she speaks her mind all the time, causing some nice little friction everywhere. And Minjin's mother is also quite the character - a bit vain, a bit bitchy, but also wonderfully confident and at the same time, oddly supporting.
