JoAnne: It's just that there's SO MUCH going on these days! We won't have time to miss anyone here because we'll be head over heels with Bad Guys. And before I even get into THAT I've got My Beloved back again starting tonight! Plus, yes, a dozen other shows. (I am most excited for pictures of the new house, though.)
Episode 45BaDIL is racing through the streets of Seoul ... uhm ... where to? We don't know. And we don't care, because this is about Bori remembering that rainy night, when her mother did a very very bad thing and her uncle got killed. "Why did you do it?", asks Bori and while her mother denies it all and increasingly panics, Bori asks "What is the difference between you and Min-jung"? Well, I know at least one difference: Min-jung is extremely pretty. BaDIL: not so much.
JoAnne: She was driving... ummm... somewhere... not sure where, but the mission was 'Find MinJung's Kid.'
JoAnne: Bori demonstrates an admirable streak of bitch, doesn't she. I love it!
JoAnne: She'll get there. That fake leather couch thing she wears over a lace tablecloth has got to go, though.
I refuse to even speak about it.
Bong2 calls Shady Servant (remember Jae-hwa got him the phone number), but before they can talk, Min-jung gets there and rips the phone out of Servant Park's hands. How dare he answer that, that'll put BaDIL in danger - and blablabla. Oh, but they really had an affair it seems? How long ago? Haha, the drama just keeps pulling things out of its nose, whatever is convenient, right?
JoAnne: I always thought he just had this one-sided love for her! If Bori turns out to be his kid... hahahahahahahah oh I will DIE I will DIE but I'm taking some one in Korea with me.
JoAnne: Well if you make it look like someone abandoned their own child and maybe killed somebody, and then you go 'oh, nope, actually, she just slept with someone else.' - it does tend to put things into perspective.
JoAnne: Yes, that totally makes up for losing your husband, your child, your home, and your career: taking care of your enemy's child. Yes, indeed. I think I've identified another habitual dye-sniffer, Kakashi.
JoAnne: GooDIL is starting to look a little freaky to me though. All that rage is messing with her face big time.
About that finding of Shady Servant ... there's still that tracking devise on Min-jung's car. Which she seems to have forgotten about completely? How stupid of her. When Bong2 and Jae-hwa get to the location where she last stopped, they find an abandoned house ... yes, because Shady has already been moved.
JoAnne: Of course he has. Why would we ever have thought otherwise? Sometimes I think Min Jung must travel most of the time via the sewer system, she gets places so quickly.
JoAnne: And in that moment, I loved Bad Dad.
JoAnne: I give this scene a 10 out 10.
JoAnne: I don't think for a minute she'd hand her over. She's playing a dangerous game there, calling the bluff of a wild animal with its back against the wall.
JoAnne: Yes but he wouldn't take kindly to finding out that they kept this from him - no one would.
JoAnne: Wait. If he got rid of it, then how does he get to prove later that Bi Dan is his, to counter Min Jung's claim that Bi Dan is hers? Because you know that's coming. It has to be. (And just now it occurs to me that both he and Bi Dan are literally oozing with more DNA.)
JoAnne: But he could be jealous that he's not Bi Dan's dad, even so.
JoAnne: I'm so glad he knows now. They really should have clued him in from the start.
JoAnne: Abs and awesome. Perfect combo.
JoAnne: Nope. Not 'til MinJung is selling vegetables on the street and there's a little Jae Ri (Bo Hwa?) running around.
JoAnne: Hi Honey, I'm glad you're home! I was just listening to your brother and my sister having sex - this could be your lucky night! (By the way, she handled that all wrong. All she had to do was say 'wow, Bori sounds like Jae Hwa is really something in bed. I guess it's good at least one brother has a chance of producing a grandchild...' - Jae Hee's competitive nature would have kicked right in!)
JoAnne: I... yeah.
(OMG it's GoM flashbacks nooooooooooo) Dumb Mom comes, Bad Dad comes, they leave again, and then, Jae-hee comes. He is a dick to Veggie and Bori stands up for her, which just enrages Jae-hee more. Min-jung is nasty to Veggie afterwards, calling it all her fault. She also leaves. Sigh. It's now only Bori and Veggie, who are both sad. Jae-hwa comes. That's about all of them now, right? Anyway, he tells Veggie to leave instead of making Bori cry. That plan doesn't work out because Bori cries a lot and even runs after her mother to give her food. Okay, I'll admit: it's very touching.
JoAnne: Mean people suck.
(fingering is not a good word to use around me.) After the vote of the judges, it's 11 to 7 ... for Team B. Little Kang brings in the votes from the employees. Oups. It's a tie! They now have 24 points each (yeah ... so there's only 30 employees in the whole company?) So Bad Dad says he choses A - that's the design he wants to go with. Min-jung wins! Nooooooooooo.
JoAnne: WTF, Show.
kakashi: It's because of Bori's dress, I'm sure (btw: it's that background in front of which Kim Ji-hoon looks SO GOOD).
JoAnne: If you win all the awards, I may honor you with my penis. (Which must be really tiny, considering how hard he has to work to stay up everyone's ass all the time.) That's what he's saying. Fuck you, Jae Hee. Be a man.
JoAnne: It was Colonel Mustard in the library with a brass candlestick!
The RestThere are now two identical versions of that cross-stitching genius-piece (Yonbo). GooDIL has made it. It means she is now a genius too. She puts one into a wooden box and the other among the rolls of silk in the cupboard.
JoAnne: See I missed that part and I was really confused later.
Big Kang is in trouble with Jung-ran because of his past jail-episode. Little Kang pleads with her to let him off the hook - since he feels guilty for putting his brother in jail in the first place. What happened to that Ga-eul loveline? Forgotten, show?
JoAnne: She's too whiny for anyone to love. Plus, a show with TWO sets of brothers marrying into the same families?
CommentsI'm just a tiny little bit over this show to be honest ... Large parts of this episode felt very draggy. We've seen it all, I guess. Min-jung's lies, BaDIL's denial, GooDIL's pain, Bori's pain, Jae-hwa's awesomeness, Bi-dan's cuteness, Moony's death wish, Jae-hee's anger, Veggie's remorse, you name it. Bi-dan is still out there to be hurt (I don't like that) and Min-jung is still out there to wreak havoc. Enough is enough! 50 episodes is too long.
JoAnne: If it was ending this week it would have been perfect. Well... they could have eliminated some of the earlier episodes, too.
