JoAnne: Well, if you do try it at home, don't tell 'em we gave you the idea.
Bori runs to the police station, to see who came forward as Bi-dan's dad - AppaNotOppa is right behind her. But he sees that Bori is the one waiting for him and confirms with a phone call (he's standing about 5 meters away) that indeed, the kid's name is Do Bi-dan and the mother is Do Bori. Confused, he lies about an emergency, no, he cannot come today after all and Bori stomps out of the police station after hearing that, really angry that a parent would not move heaven and hell to find an abandoned child.
JoAnne: Seriously, what kind of shit is that? Oh, sorry, I know you might have found my kid that's been missing for 99% of her life but yeah, something came up, let's just table this for tomorrow, k?
JoAnne: Well she's more likely to be Eun Bi than Min Jung was so I say GO FOR IT, GooDIL!
Bi Sool Chae gets asked to make a hanbok for the First Lady ... but not just anyone is allowed to do it. She wants it from Halmoni. This is THE opportunity for Min-jung to start another evil plan (which will of course be foiled again), this time directed against the Matron.
JoAnne: I was laughing to myself in the car today about this show.. because by now shouldn't we be tired of Min Jung's stupid plans that never work? I mean they're not played for laughs, so we're supposed to take them seriously... but they NEVER work. And yet, I'm not at all tired of it. Maybe because her cartoon villain facial gestures ARE over the top, even if her plans are just stupid. It's like she envisions herself as this genius manipulator but mostly she's just gotten lucky because the people around her are only slightly conversant with reality anyway.
JoAnne: As a brother, you make a really good coat rack? I don't know!
kakashi: Well, it's certainly a good way you show your disdain for someone ...
JoAnne: He totally deserves a reward for his awesomeness, and I know exactly what to give him.
JoAnne: She does look good, and she was a tiny bit awesome. This stalker bride continues to make my jaw drop.
JoAnne: She is; and in her favor, she's not at all trashy in appearance. She looks like every mom out there, dressed comfortably with a tiny bit of style, no nonsense hair, just a normal person - not a femme fatale out to ruin the Respected Authority of Prosecutors.
JoAnne: While I admire his attitude, the truth IS very easily proven, you know, and he could keep his job AND his relationship with Bori if he really wanted to. I know, I know, he's making a point. Whatever. That point ain't gonna feed nobody.
JoAnne: His pronunciation - ehrrrrr ohh vwee eeeeeeeeeeeee - distracts me from the now-growing awesomeness. (It distracts me with its cuteness.)
JoAnne: I thought they looked a little bit like they wished they were Bori, maybe. (I also wish I were Bori)
JoAnne: The whole idea that marriage could be settled as long as the FAMILY agrees to it is deeply disturbing to me. I have nothing against arranged marriages; the procedure has much to recommend it or it wouldn't still be around in a lot of the world, after all. But I am offended by the idea that the party themselves does not have ultimate veto power.
When Bori gets up, offended (Stalky offers her money for the secret how to seduce Jae-hwa), Stalky pours coffee over the beauuuutiful hanbok. Blasphemy!!! And she asks a waitress to throw the garment away. Have I said I like her? Well, scratch that. I don't. Bori is outraged (me too!!) and gives Stalky back her money - she'll not sell to her. And she may not know how to seduce a man, but she now sure knows why Jae-hwa doesn't like Stalker Bride. Hehe.
JoAnne: She has Sinned Against The Hanbok. She shall be Cast Out, and her name shall be as Ashes in the mouths of those who once knew her. No man shall claim her. No woman shall aid her. She will lie fallow and her womb will be Barren til the End of Time, lest her Blasphemous Spirit continue in the world of Man. Should any such ignore this Ruling, they too will feel the Wrath of The Hanboker.
JoAnne: That's right, she's going to steam the STUFFING out of those potatoes. And once they've been steamed she's going to turn them over and steam them again from the OTHER SIDE, too. She MIGHT even steam them in PUBLIC. How's that? Maybe they'll go on a VACATION and steam some potatoes. Perhaps they will send her VIDEO of them steaming some potatoes, does that sound like a plan? NOBODY comes between Bori and steaming some potatoes for Jae Hwa. NOBODY.
JoAnne: That poor man. His face when he looks at Bi Dan. He wasn't a bad man, Min Jung drove him past the breaking point. She took his family, his child, she laughed at his love and his sincerity...oh my God she's really - of all the things she's done, making her mother lie for her and what she did to AnotO... those are the worst things. They're worse even then abandoning her own child, because at least she believed that child would be brought up in a better situation.
JoAnne: If someone says to me that Jae Hwa came to visit and he brought protection with him, an umbrella is not what I picture.
They're little umbrella too, though. Kinda.
JoAnne: Sassy little munchkin.
JoAnne: That face he made of her face was hilarious. I hope it's one of the gifs, hint hint hint
JoAnne: There is entirely too little wet naked Kim Ji Hoon in this drama. It would get 40% ratings if they would change that. Think about it. All the same scenes, but whenever Jae Hwa is at home, he strips down to boxer briefs. INSTANT CLASSIC.
JoAnne: There is a time and a place for grown man aegyo of a certain level. This is the time, this is the place, and that is the level.
JoAnne: Jae Hwa did that on purpose, didn't he?
Grill party with pork outside! Everybody is happily wrapping lettuce packages for each other, with Big Kang being the only lonely one. But not for long, because here comes Jung-ran! With only a liiiiiittle bit of clothing for Jae-hwa. Can't bring it all at the same time, can we now. She is introduced to Bori, Big Kang and Jae-hwa bicker, and it's altogether AWESOME (the way they make fun of Jae-hwa's senseu ... priceless!). Especially since Jung-ran tells everybody that Jae-hee brought home Min-jung and that they are plotting something about the hanbok for the Blue House.
JoAnne: Woot! Ain't no party like a grilled pork party! I say grilled pork, you say party! Grilled pork! ......come on, say it! Fine. No soju for you. More for me.
JoAnne: The producers would like to assure everyone that the hanbok was treated with the utmost respect and a donation was made to the Humble Appreciation Toward Early Raiment Society* in the name of Min Jung.
Absolutely loved the scene in which Jae-hee hears that his Moonie Secretary aka AppaNotOppa found his child that his ex-girlfriend abandoned without his content and then goes on and on about how terrible a woman that ex-girlfriend must be. The moment he will find out about the true Min-jung? That's something I look forward to! A Lot!
JoAnne: I may sew a hanbok in his honor on that day.
JoAnne: So FAR; he keeps knocking her around on the world's longest elevator rides and the planet's emptiest parking garages, but one of these days he's going to get CAUGHT.
JoAnne: NO ONE is happy, so I am VERY happy.
JoAnne: So cute. So CUTE.
JoAnne: I begin to forgive. What can I say? I have a soft heart.
I like, I like, I like! Ohhhhh, I like. Can we get more bickering between Jae-hwa and Big Kang though? It's awesome! Ahhhhh, the bromance that is brewing! It's insane!
JoAnne: I need them to wake up all tangled up in the blankets together after we get a few scenes of them snuggling happily and thinking about their girls. Always good for a laugh!
The biggest scam is actually that they're living in Bad Dad's house, haha, without knowing. The only who does know is Little Kang, who is is on a business trip (I guess the actor is doing something idol related?). Let's see how long he'll tolerate the happy frolicking under one roof!
JoAnne: I don't know... whatever group he's in (I forget) is not one I pay attention to...but I should look him up to see what he looks like all glittered up. He's a cutie. JUST a cutie though. Not A Puppy.
I wonder whether Bad Dad will come to his senses in time or whether his blindness will cost him the company. Let's not forget that Jae-hee is plotting to take over (out of fear he will be ousted by his big brother) and kick out his own father. Yeah, he's not a good guy - but I already feel sorry for him. You see that there's good in him when he stands up for Min-jung in front of his mother. I hope it's not too late, boy with the awful dead thing in your hair.
JoAnne: Please oh please don't ruin my cute little boy for me, redeem him O Holy Mother of Hanboks.
