This is a serious episode, with lots of break-ups of not-yet-formed couples. We're sloooooooowly edging towards the truth, but the steps are so small, it's hard to notice. Also: new hair is in our future! In general, I demand more Jae-hwa - and more Jae-hwa/Bori interactions. In general, this week's episodes don't really deliver on that. Oh well, there's over 30 episodes left, so ...
JoAnne: I'm going to be so old. I'm going to be so old and so dead by the time anything happens that I want to see, like Jae Hwa be sexy, or Bori learn to modulate her tone of voice, or Big Kang put major mack daddy moves on Auntie, or that goddamn hateful Min Jung midget falls into a man hole that leads straight to hell.
Min-jung came all the way from Seoul to crush Bori's hopes of ever becoming a student at Bi Sool Chae: she tells GooDIL that Matron has no intention of taking Bori as a student (which is, of course, a lie). GooDIL is suspicious about the way Bori addresses Min-jung (as unni), but Bori, still trying to protect that evil witch's secret, pretends it's because she got to know Min-jung at the competition. When the two girls are alone, Min-jung is cruel as always, whereas Bori defends her teacher from Min-jung's venom. She also tells Min-jung that she sews with her heart - like she makes the food for their mother with her heart. That is all. And that is the secret to everything (at least in this show).
JoAnne: Please don't redeem her. Please don't ever. Please let her live out her miserable lonely life alone, with even her plants dying around her and rats refusing to enter her miserable hovel.
JoAnne: Oh God, yes.
JoAnne: Her loyalty and sense of responsibility are admirable. They are. They're just so misplaced, it's very frustrating.
JoAnne: Is she going to say it in any way that makes sense or clears up misunderstandings? No, why start now. Then just shut up, BoRi. If you can't tell him the one thing that he needs to hear - you did not give birth to your baby but that doesn't change how much you want to be her mother - then just shut up and go away.
JoAnne: Don't you think he seems kind of overboard? I mean, he liked her for about 3 days. There was no confession, no dating, no kissing that counted... she never acted like she liked him AT ALL.
kakashi: Yeah, well ... the boy has ISSUES, JoAnne.
JoAnne: And since she's nine, she has no idea that his anger comes from disappointment because he LIKES her. Sigh.
JoAnne: Wouldn't it make more sense to put up a picture of Eun-Bi from around the time they lost her?
kakashi: Oh yes. Of course. But ... JoAnne? Since when does this makes SENSU?!
JoAnne: Yes, but the poor idiot needs ONE friend, at least.
JoAnne: Do you get the feeling that after all this time she sort of believes her own lies?
kakashi: I don't know what this woman is, what she could possibly think or believe. I just know that YOUR boy is so doomed.
JoAnne: He is indeed handsome. I think that pink material gives him a nice glow.
JoAnne: And she is completely clueless about anything anyway which would probably make it seem even scarier since: unexpected.
JoAnne: And I don't buy the angst from either of them. It wasn't developed well, I guess.
kakashi: I didn't mind though I agree it wasn't all too well developed. But you know how you sometimes meet people and you bond, immediately? And then, you have to part ... and you think it's forever? It hurts.
JoAnne: Anyone ever hear of colic? Or a doctor? You have a baby that can't tolerate breast milk or formula and cries all the time. A baby with existing health issues that may be accompanied by others you don't know about, since her mother squished the bejesus out of her in utero. But no one bothers to actually check with a medical professional. And that bitch Veggie was harsh like that deliberately, to make Bori even more determined to be a good mother.
JoAnne: Seriously, are they going to start attributing miracles to the really special hanbokkers?
JoAnne: Does it matter that various family members have Young Sook and Bo Ri confused? I can't really guess yet.
kakashi: Maybe because Second Mother thinks she has taken care of things and it's a totally different woman that the shaman meant?
JoAnne: I'm wondering why they ever had it at all.
kakashi: Ah, but she was quite funny, that Young-sook.
And now, everybody (well, not quite) is going to America. Min-jung with Jae-hee's money, Ga-eul because her father wants her to get that degree (and because he thinks she is troubling Little Kang too much). When Veggie Ahjumma finds out, she goes berserk and she and Bori rush to the airport. Also there, the Lees, sending off Ga-eul.
JoAnne: I am so ready for this time jump.
JoAnne: See, a picture of herself would have been ideal.
kakashi: Ah, but we're only on episode 17.
BaDIL has bad dreams .... about GooDIL coming back with the emblem and taking her place as Head Seamstress. Buahahaha, please make it true!!
Jung-ran is still heart-broken and all the dancing classes in the world don't help. The animal that Big Kang gave her ... talks back. The thing you tell him. In a high "cute" voice.
JoAnne: I thought it had a voice recorder, hahahahahaha.
kakashi: I have several apps like that (a cat, a giraffe, and hippo). They're funny. Until they're absolutely not!
AppaNotOppa attacks Min-jung and almost kills her. Of course, people, never do something like that. But ..... well. He fails, is dragged away and screams he will never leave her alone, he will find her in hell and love her psychotically forever. Buahahaha, not funny but so funny.
JoAnne: She actually drove a man crazy.
Time jump, time jump! Hair-change, hair-change! It's coming. We'll have a lot to talk about ...
JoAnne: Yes, please.
