JoAnne: Do they not know we are MOTHERS, Kakashi? I want to kill everyone who makes that little girl cry. (Do you think they'll hit national drama status with 40% before the end?)
kakashi: I haven't seen the ratings for this weeks episodes yet. It's very possible, yes.
JoAnne: Your gif scared me I wasn't expecting Moony to move. And I am very, very tired of BaDIL's shrillness (yes. She doesn't do angry well). Veggie needs to be hit in the head with a pumpkin, hard. As many times as it takes to knock her permanently silent. (So is there a story about where the pepper grows?) (I'm not sure - it's just a far far far away land)
JoAnne: I feel bad for him. He was a simple fellow, and he never had all the information.
JoAnne: Why is he not even spending a minute to think about the ways Min Jung has him screwed? Is he suddenly now scot-free?
JoAnne: Beady-eyed little trollop.
JoAnne: It would all be left in the dust if BaDIL wasn't digging around on her misbegotten quest to right any wrongs done to Bori by Min Jung since she won't right any of the wrongs she herself did to Bori. Stupid woman with your ugly voice. Just stop.
JoAnne: Oh, please tell me they're all in on this against her please.
JoAnne: TAKE THAT YOU BITCH
JoAnne: Seriously, these people. Person A says something: everyone believes. Person B says something: everyone switches and believes. Its... um... unbelievable.
Maybe her nose grew bigger?
JoAnne: Is she seriously going to ask for help? What is her head like? It's got to be scary - her reality is completely different than ours.
JoAnne: Oh give me a fucking break. Seriously. Didn't we have this same scene (minus the headbanging) two weeks ago, where she promised to get Min Jung to confess? (YES! ENOUGH!!) Did this woman even graduate from grade school? How STUPID is she?
JoAnne: Yes, but this time my impression is they get her to sign them over to protect Bi Sool Chae in the long run. You know with Jae Hwa involved he won't let anything shady happen to BSC.
JoAnne: Wow. Way to misjudge your audience, Min Jung.
JoAnne: He still had some kind of hope that at least SOMETHING she told him was true, and now he knows that her entire story is a lie. Poor guy. He did love her, and she was never truthful with him.
Shady Servant Park confesses everything to Bong2. Everything= adoring BaDIL, but not desiring her, covering up the accident for 20 years, and being a bit stupid. Bong2 shouts at his wife and she is now afraid he will tell Halmoni. Because that would mean THE END of her in Bi Sool Chae. But ... no! We want to see that competition!
JoAnne: I swear, the minute she married you I stopped imagining her bending over the dyepots naked! Honest!
Jae-hwa snoops around (legally) in Jae-hee's computer and discovers the Min-jung/Moony love celebration video. Oups. Now there's your missing link ... he goes straight to the bar where his brother is currently getting drunk and demands to know about Min-jung and Moony.
JoAnne: Ahhh, I forgot. He was the last one to have any idea. No matter, though. He loves Bi Dan so much.
JoAnne: Five years from now, the two brothers share a beer and laugh about how they fell out over eggs, and then reconnected after a scheming trollop made fools of them all. As for BaDIL and her plans, well. I have much to say about this woman. In a bit.
JoAnne: Like right now. That this woman - a mother - can say such ugly things about a child in front of that child - it blows my mind. How can she say she loves Bori and then turn around and be so hateful to the one person Bori loves beyond reason? If I were Bori, that woman would have would not have been treated so gently.
JoAnne: Yeah, except that 'always love, but have to know the truth' - that always works out to 'well, I tried, but I can't.'
JoAnne: Sure, she should have told him. But then he wouldn't have married her.
kakashi: I'm not sure. And if it's true, she should have told him because otherwise, she just conned him into marrying her, right?
JoAnne: Those two bitches have earned a special place in hell. Bad Dad, do something about your witches.
(hahahaha I tweeted about that earlier) and starts shaking Moony, also blaming him for what his kind and stupid Bori had to go through. He never wants to see his face again - ever. And no more seeing Bi-dan after one last look. But when Moony turns around to look at his daughter, she's nowhere in sight (because she's hiding).
JoAnne: I'm sorry but fuck you, Jae Hwa. Stop being a dick.
It pisses me off.
When Moony drives off, Bi-dan comes running, to look after the car. Jae-hwa tries to cheer her up and hugs her close, but she is just crying, watching the car. In the car, Moony watches her in the back mirror and thanks Jae-hwa for becoming her real dad. *takes a break from capping, sniff*
JoAnne: Sure, it's going to work out in the end, but right now, according to the story, it's not so certain he WILL be her real dad, the asshole.
JoAnne: It does not get to me AT ALL. Bitch. She's only sorry the baby is gone because that was her hook into Jae Hee.
The RestVery Much Annoying Couple ... well. They get about a minute of screentime.
JoAnne: Oh my GOD go away already. *mouths an apology to Big Kang and makes the gesture for 'call me'*
CommentsI didn't always have a lot to say about this show - especially since the comment worthy stuff started to get so repetitive. But this! Show, do you know you have 3 episodes left?! So much happened again!
JoAnne: Seriously. We've said before how crazy it is that week after week after week Min Jung would do something ill-conceived, get caught, and then barely scrape her way out of a mess, and that it would be boring if she didn't make it so crazy entertaining - and then for a tiny bit it did get a little boring and even now... it's still more of the same ol' same ol' - but they keep wrapping it in new clothes and I can't help it, I'm still on board.
Min-jung has hit rock bottom. What will she do? Will she really try to grab Bi-dan and run? I doubt that. She'll try to hold onto Jae-hee as long as possible (after the competition?), and she can only do that if she lies about her condition. Of course. She is becoming quite pitiful I think. No?
JoAnne: In a bug squirming on a pin kind of way, sure. You know what I think - her level of delusion is scary.
Veggie: just leave this show already. She does nothing but be annoying, voicing empty promises, running hither and tither to do stupid things. She is completely redundant at this point. Just like Absolutely Annoying Couple and Ga-eul and Dumb Mom.
JoAnne: Yes. She's one who does the same thing over and over and just bores me with it.
Jae-hee: I think we'll not get to see any satisfactory character anything with him. He has turned from the dark side and is ready to accept his brother's love. Good. He's a total asshole, but the show seems to have forgotten.
JoAnne: Yep they'll turn him into the insecure son born under questionable circumstances who got taken advantage of by the scheming bitch. Which he is, but he had a lot more agency than that makes it sound like. And he had plans of his own that weren't all that above board even before she came on the scene.
BaDIL: she knows she has lost. Her quest before final destruction? To remove "toxic waste" from her daughter's path. That, in her mind, includes Bi-dan. And that is very much NOT GOOD.
JoAnne: I would so be on board her mission to eliminate Min Jung. But Bi Dan? No. Stop. Halt. Abort mission.
Bi-dan: so heartbreaking. How many more times does she have to hear that she's unwanted, worse even, a terrible burden for her angelic mother? She'll need therapy when she's older. Loads of it. I'm still not sure how this show will handle the fact that genetically, she's half Min-jung. Almost everybody knows now - will she ever know? I'm not sure what would be better for her.
JoAnne: I don't see how they can keep it from her, but I suspect it will be devastating for the poor kid.
Moony: Don't tell me that was a real farewell scene?! OMG, Nooooooo! Well, if it's the ending Moony gets, it's a worthy ending. At least he's not dead. At least he gets to exit with a smile on his face and the knowledge that his daughter is in good hands. But .... nooooooo!
JoAnne: He needs more of a send off than THAT. And Trotwood needs time to pack.
Jae-hwa: hm. Now here's a potential problem. Bori should have told him MUCH earlier and things are about to blow up in her face because she hasn't. Told you so, Bori. He will of course forgive her and he has already overcome his discomfort over knowing that Bi-dan is half Min-jung (as shown by the hug at the end) - but what about his family? This will be very hard to swallow. You don't need to live in a Korean family to know that - even for me it would be pretty hard to accept that my worst enemy and sister-in-law (it is bad enough she is that!) had a child she abandoned that I am currently raising. Jae-hwa, hwaiting!!
JoAnne: Yep, when it's framed that way, it's easy to see how difficult a situation it actually is. It has nothing to do with whether people are kind or not.
kakashi: Don't hate him, JoAnne. He'll pull through. He just needs a bit of time to digest this. About one episode of time? Tick tock. Time's running out!
