Two strong episodes ahead of us! Of course we're NOT going for the big reveal this week ... we're dancing a few meters around it, round and round. Heating up, unexpectedly for me, is Bi-dan's secret though.
JoAnne: When even the shows a girl is watching 'for work' become fantabulous, when is that girl supposed to SLEEP, I ask you?
I'm sorry, not sorry. Episode 31
It's the crossstitch-genius pillow of truth! Finally! GooDIL demands to know how Bori got this, and Bori says she wore it around her neck, according to her mother, when she was young. That's all that she remembers - no memories of her early childhood at all. Heeeeelllooooo, GooDIL! She has amnesia!!!! Don't you get it?! She doesnt ... and since the DNA didn't "match", and the age that Bori was told she was found is wrong, she once again dismisses the theory that Bori is Eun-bi.
JoAnne: Argh, seriously, THESE PEOPLE.
JoAnne: I can't decide what to be more angry about - that the school did that, that HE did that, or that they're making this little munchkin even pretend to be that sad. HOW IS ANY OF THAT OKAY? Amended to add later: I decided for the sake of the story to just be mad at the school. Because really, that can't be allowed.
JoAnne: The whole lipstick thing was weird enough to really notice at the time, plus then later when she's in the same outfit with NO lipstick...
JoAnne: Because ginger isn't easily identifiable or anything. And fuck MinJung. Pardon my french.
JoAnne: The shoes that are dropping will hit these people in the end, and since they appear to be dropping from exceptionally great heights (based on how.long.it.is.taking...) - they're all gonna die at the reveal.
JoAnne: Imagine them as old and wrinkle-y and this cute. Then collapse from the squee.
JoAnne: As one does, in dramas.
From Jae-hee, Min-bitch-jung finds out that her arch enemy AnO has gone to the amusement park with his daughter - and that he has moved to be close to his kid. Jae-hee remarks that AnO is quasi a saint - he could never be as nice to a kid that shares blood with the awful woman who abandoned her child. Min-jung acts immediately on the new information and checks all the documents she stole from AnO's place. Among them, she finds a picture of Bi-dan. When AnO drops Bi-dan off in front of the alley she lives in, Min-jung is there to witness it all. She can't wrap her head around the fact that Bori's daughter could really be her flesh and blood and follows Bi-dan to the front gate.
JoAnne: Jae Hee has just revealed himself to have a serious lack.
JoAnne: Way to be a complete bitch, Veggie. As if you had ANY right to say ANYthing, first of all, and second of all - where's your compassion as a mo-...never mind.
JoAnne: Ohhhhh. she knew that, but didn't know that was Bi Dan thinking alone? Well, in a world where she acts the way she does, I suppose it makes sense, sort off, that Veggie Ahjumma would think that Bori could do that, and thus she would deserve some anger. Hell no, no. There's no one who could see how Bori loves that child who could seriously believe for a minute that she'd abandon her. Logic fail, show.
JoAnne: She is dead. Dead. They need to end this show with this woman lying crumpled at the bottom of a ravine, dead, with crows pecking at her eyes, while everyone she knows is at a picnic way up high near the top of the cliff (but at a safe distance from it) eating and laughing, not even realizing she's gone.
JoAnne: I'll admit that I had to really stretch to accept that they barely blip on a guy they don't know at all well taking her to an amusement park for half a day but think MinJung's having her at a neighborhood restaurant for a minute is kidnapping. But since it serves to support the MinJung is Evil Personified theme, I made myself go with it.
JoAnne: Oh, this is what she notices. Hahaahahahahahahaah.
JoAnne: Not gonna lie, losing Jae Hee will be the most satisfying moment of MinJung's downfall for me, I think.
JoAnne: I always wonder how people can act so STRONGLY like they've done nothing wrong when they know they have.
lies her way out of the very telling video with her mother again. I'm
getting tired of her - or rather her convenient lies. But! At least she
gets suspected by Bong2 to be the one behind the disappearance of all
the Eun-bi pictures. AND Bong2 suggests to his wife that Min-jung might be the reason that Eun-bi cannot come back.
JoAnne: This was funny!
JoAnne: BaDIL and MinJung (and Veggie, too) have all done enough to land themselves in jail for some time, yes.
The Awful Mothers, Jae-hee and Bitchy Evil Witch-Bitch go and look at
the wedding hall. Oh yikes-yay, it's so uncomfortable! Dumb Mom
constantly talks about what the Hanbokers should pay, BaDIL constantly
doesn't want to spend a dime. In moments like these, I kinda like Dumb
Mom. Next, Jae-hee takes Min-jung to his (opposing) father, and praises
Min-jung's business value. Haha. Bad Dad - who often says exactly what
needs to be said - points out that that's not a reason to get married.
It's a no. But FUCKING Min-fucking-jung takes the opportunity to talk
badly about Bori once again - to look good herself. Aaaaaarhg! Bad Dad
seems a bit shaken.
JoAnne: The scene with the moms was awesome. But I did have to kind of agree with BaDIL. THEY don't want all that stuff, they want their simple, traditional wedding. If the other family wants it because of their 'status', then they should pay for it. Part of me would have loved it if MinJung reacted like 'what? you don't love me enough to spend the money?' and all of that fall out, but it was ok this way too.
JoAnne: *rubs hands gleefully at the prospect of MinJung embarrassment*
Ga-eul is trying to convince Big Kang to not date her aunt - it's quite
fruitless, of course. But there is pizza PPL. Little Kang, pestered by
Jung-ran at the fitness studio, is also not ready to let go of Ga-eul.
JoAnne: Although the people are cute, I couldn't be less interested.
This was an action-laden episode - well, as action-laden as they come. It brings us several steps closer to solving one of the big mysteries of this show: the Bi-dan mystery. Bori already suspects what is going on ... and from realizing AnO is the father, it's only a little step to realizing Min-jung is the mother. Ouch, this is going to HURT. She gave up her youth for Min-jung's daughter? It also seems that Jae-hwa is taking some action, and I can't say I'm sad about that. He has been quite passive in the last few episodes (or side-lined, rather), which was necessary to focus on some other characters, sure, but isn't too good for these KimJiCaps.
JoAnne: It is funny how we spend weeks on nothing much and then suddenly the show takes HUGE leaps forward and we just go, 'Okay, time for this now, yup.' We love it. We love it so much.
