JoAnne: I thoroughly enjoyed the way you coded your tweets as you explained the problem, though. You are brilliantilone that wayvikiay.
Episode 43Moony, our tragic hero, saves the day by counter-threatening Min-jung - if she doesn't leave Bori and her well-deserved wedding alone, he will reveal the darkest and ugliest of her secrets: that she is a mother who abandoned her own flesh and blood for money and status. I totally love the concept of counter-threat. It’s like counter-terrorism. Or counter-espionage. Very good. JoAnne: I like counter-space. No, not the same thing? I haven't even told you what I want it for, though.
Is that when you put in two spaces after a period deliberately, to vex me?
JoAnne: But then what would we WATCH, Kakashi? Think of the poor viewers!
JoAnne: Ah, mothers...
JoAnne: I LOVED her here. 'How about if I say it, then? She is my daughter.' Ah, good stuff. Good stuff!
kakashi: They're working hard to make us like her!
JoAnne: She isn't in this one at all even though there's a few times you'd think she would be - they must be out on tour or something. Or she caught a cold, who knows.
JoAnne: Sure it is, makes complete sense. Those two in the same house though, that would be awesome.
JoAnne: How could he not know? I almost feel like watching it again to confirm it. Almost.
JoAnne: Do you think in real life they'd get to sneak off like that without a big goodbye from everyone? That's all I could think about there. It wouldn't happen. I was distracted.
JoAnne: I'm sorry, this was stupid. For one thing, how is it that Jung Ran and Big Kang are just hanging out in some one else's bedroom going through their stuff. They aren't four (yeah, but they're not more than 5, either). And yeah, sure, let's keep that ring right there in the jewelry case, why the hell not?
JoAnne: THAT mystery is the one I'm most curious about seeing them resolve, I think.
Jae-hwa is home, Min-jung too. She has changed her clothes. How many times a day does she do that? How many times does she lie? When Jae-hwa sees the rings, he immediately knows that Dumb Mom must have met his mother – most likely at the scene of the accident. And the reason there are two rings? Because his father didn’t only give it to one woman. Ouch, that’s tough. And Jae-hwa was so looking forward to a little sexy time with his woman :-(
JoAnne: Again, kind of stupid. Because it wasn't just the same rings that dad was giving to more than one woman, and everyone knows it and has known it for decades.
kakashi: Not the bit about the two women meeting though. That's "new". And kind of a game changer, since it puts the accident into a different perspective.
JoAnne: I cannot comment because I am cackling gleefully at the memory of how gleefully I cackled in anticipation of where this is going.
JoAnne: Another stupid thing. Those rings were completely ordinary looking. I have always thought it was stupid that anyone would automatically assume that because they looked alike they came from the same man. No one has ever said they were designed by him, for example.
JoAnne: Poor Veggie. And BaDIL is trying.
Bori does go to the egg-shop and almost gets the owner to tell her everything about the accident, but look who is here! It’s Min-jung, who quietly threatens the owner about possible perjury so that she shuts up. Min-jung then threatens Bori with her mom and Bi-dan once again. She would be a great serial killer, this one. I mean the actress. And if casted. The good thing about this encounter is that Bori realizes what it must be that Min-jung is using against her mother – the knowledge that Eun-bi rode in her mother’s car that night she disappeared. If she reveals it first, Min-jung’s powerplay comes to an end.
JoAnne: The better her clothes get the smarter she is.
JoAnne: Oh, how I laughed.
The RestDuring Bori’s and Jae-hwa’s wedding ceremony, Big Kang and Jung-ran go through the steps as well and at the end, they claim that they are also married.
JoAnne: Lately they're just annoying.
JoAnne: At the time I thought well, if he realizes she's being blackmailed perhaps he feel sorry for her and help.
JoAnne: I would laugh and say 'duh' but she thought of it before I did so...
JoAnne: There's a big shoe waiting to drop on your head dude, and its name is Bi Dan.
JoAnne: That little girl was amazing right there.
JoAnne: I laughed to see that mistake again.
JoAnne: Happy happy joy joy! Happy happy joy joy! Happy? Joy! Happy? Joy! Happy happy joy joy! I think that's Ren and Stimpy? I don't know... I hated that cartoon.
CommentsJoAnne, I've lost count of our secrets. Are they all out now?
JoAnne: Nope. Mostly there's still the Bi Dan reveal, but there's also the 'confirm BaDIL was there' issue.
I was unhappy about how this show cheated Jae-hwa out of his wedding night. That's not nice. The boy has been excited for weeks. Months, even! But I guess finding out about his mother serves a purpose. He will be able to finally move on after this. And he will make peace with his father. And hopefully his brother, down the road. After this episode, I want to see them hug. Jae-hee needs some love. That look when he saw all of them together at the wedding? That was painful.
JoAnne: You aren't sorry for Jae Hwa. You're sorry you didn't get to see Jae Hwa shirtless, in pajama pants. But then again, so are we all.
