JoAnne: We DESERVE abs, after watching that Min Jung. And while we're asking for abs, I want more of Big Kang. Abs uber alles!
Busted! The Hanbokers now have proof that Min-yung knows Bori much better than she has claimed so far. Well, they THINK they have proof, but of course, Veggie Ahjumma and Min-jung continue their pathetic and rage-inducing lying. Min-jung admits that they have lived together briefly in Jangheung, but is quite adamant that Bori isn't her sister etc. etc. etc. It all ends with Veggie Ahjumma forcefully dragging Bori away, Min-jung crying fake tears (I HATE HER!!!) and running away, and Bong2 voicing his suspicion once again.
JoAnne: How does a person just LIE like that?
JoAnne: Bori you are not that cute that I won't slap you for being stupid.
Jae-hwa is at the prosecutor's office, fantasizing that she might think his whole body is hers. Because he is clearly on cloud 890, his orderly diagnoses "love". Awwwww, look how happy Jae-hwa is!JoAnne: He's an idiot, and I say this with all the fondness in the world. Also - we have a similar saying, but it's just cloud 9. You Swiss, always have to be the best.
JoAnne: So that doesn't seem like it would be very prestigious, no? Unless by using the term sauna they are differentiating from a jimjilbang? You know, more mudbaths and facial treatments, less athlete's foot and hardboiled eggs?
kakashi: Maybe he has already seen all the other ladies in Seoul - and this is the last resort?
JoAnne: She dresses better, too. Still terribly, but not as terrible.
JoAnne: He's not NOW because he's awash in hormones, but eventually he WOULD be. And so would their kids. And they all might try to hide it from her out of love, but she'd know it herself anyway, and she'd see it in them, and no one would be happy.
JoAnne: For one very weird, freaky minute where I forgot that Bi Dan isn't actually Bori's child, I thought, 'Wow! She's genetically compelled to draw the same picture!' Then I realized how stupid I was, and yes, I decided to share that with all of you.
JoAnne: Everytime I read this I think, 'WHOA....that's not really his dad? How did I miss that?' And then I realize. I swear, cold medicine. It screws with you.
JoAnne: Yes, I have a bad feeling about this.
JoAnne: #1 Oh shit about the car, that seems weird. #2 Oh so now Jae Hee wants to keep House of Electronics Daughter out of Min Jung's hearing? Hmmm.
JoAnne: It's ok for dad to have an extramarital affair and then move the low-class mistress and his illegitimate son into the family home practically within hours of the wife's tragic death, but Jae Hwa can't even look at a woman with a child from a previous relationship? Well we knew the answer to that one but still, FFFF you, you blustery old fool.
JoAnne: I was SO ready for Jae Hwa to start talking what passes for sexy in Korea... but no. Thwarted.
JoAnne: Awwww, look at her face... she's just realizing he was always really only interested in her.
JoAnne: Ahhhhhhhhhh hahahahahahahaah I had a bad feeling but I wasn't expecting THIS. I was just expecting her to be hard to get rid of, and maybe sway him a bit.
JoAnne: Well ok, 90% of that speech was crap because he's not going to stop coming around, but awwww. Although I don't think I'd want the man I'm contemplating sleeping with teaching me stuff little kids already know. Let me keep some dignity.
JoAnne: I really didn't expect this complication.
kakashi: Well, Bori will have to step up her game and fight for him. That's probably good.
JoAnne: I blew you kisses, Show. I did.
At Bi Sool Chae, the Hanbokers seem to pretty much list all of Min-jung's crimes as she packs her suitcase. Can she LEAVE already??! She produces "proof" that she is an orphan (is it her father's death certificate? And how does that prove that she is an orphan?!) - and says that Bori's mother is a terrible, terrible person. She didn't send her to school and made her work with alcohol. Ah, so you're now pretending you had Bori's life? She also shows them monthly wire transfers and lies that her "mother" forced her to pay and blackmailed her - or rather "The Professor", whom she threatened to sue for child abduction. WTFSERIOUSLY! *Raaaaaaaaage*
JoAnne: So angry it made me speechless for a minute. How does a person COME UP WITH THIS SHIT? And what really gets me: the STUPIDITY. That piece of paper doesn't prove anything about Min Jung, you dye-sniffing idiots.
JoAnne: hahahahahaahha we used the same insult.
JoAnne: Oh my freaking God. Well first of all, he already KNEW she was scheming for him before he sent her off to America. Five years ago. So why act all touched and emotional and swayed about it now, Jae Hee? Stay strong! Remember that she's a woman who will do and say anything to get what she wants! You know this about her! PLUS you spoke the truth - why does she NEED Bi Seul Chae? She has skills and talent and education and she's fine on her own. She can get everything she wants without using anyone. Ughhhhhhhh.
JoAnne: We will cut a bitch, won't we Kakashi?
JoAnne: As a plan, doesn't this seem a bit shortsighted? Way to alienate the home team, Min Jung.
The Hanbokers and Min-jung meet Veggie Ahjumma. Min-jung makes her own mother "confess" to mistreating her for 20 years. This is heart breaking. And just like that, Min-jung is BACK in favor. She cries a little, because in that black and shriveled evil heart of hers, she feels how badly she is treating the one who gave birth to her.
JoAnne: Watching her mother was painful. So painful. I may not think much of that woman but she loves Min Jung and would do anything for her. Which is of course the problem, because instead of beating her ASS like she deserved when she was 9, we have this situation. But I can still sympathize with her mother's heart.
kakashi: Sadly, so can I.
JoAnne: I was so excited for everyone to know about everyone but no. Neatly done. And kinda liked how totally Little Kang did not hide his feelings for Ga Eul.
I didn't like this episode as much as the last few. Of course I didn't because it was FRUSTRATING AS HELL! Min-jung has a comeback AGAIN and she gets more and more hateful by the minute. There's a special place for her in hell. Jae-hwa and Bori are making zero progress, even though he keeps dropping hints everywhere that he likes her. Wow, he even asked his dad whether he would accept a woman with child as his wife! And what's with Sauna Girl?! Woah. She seems dangerous.
JoAnne: Yep. So Dangerous. (And now I have EXO singing in my head.)
|almost idol-boy approves of EXO|
JoAnne: I kind of always thought we saw some highlighted bad scenes but that there were long stretches in there where Bori and Veggie Ahjumma were on their own, living quietly and happily together. Bori seemed like a happy child and young woman. And she made serving alcohol seem like child prostitution! Bori served pitchers of something (most likely beer) to diners in her brightly lit family restaurant as a young woman. She wasn't being groped by leering men in some dank dark cellar of a club. There is a difference.
