Yes, I’m enjoying this new weekend drama! Very makjang-y although I hate how everyone is trying to tell Yeondoo to abort her baby. Is it really that normal in Korea? I’m aghast that even her mom is asking her to do such thing. Not asking but forcing her and dragging her to have an abortion! Even her brother is disgusting! How can you say that to your sister when he got a girl pregnant at 17 and his daughter is hearing everything you are saying to her aunt! The only good thing about Yeon Doo’s family is the uncle.
Likewise, Tae Kyung’s family is equally horrible. Especially the grandma. She is manipulative and selfish. She hates Tae Kyung because he is not flesh and blood and she controls his moves. Why does the grandma love Sejin so much and no one in the family knows how manipulative liar she is!! Se Jin takes after her mother and I can’t imagine how a greedy mom like her got married to a professor! As for Tae Kyung’s (half?) siblings, it seems like they also don’t think much of TK.
And don’t even get me started on the ex-boyfriend, Kim Jun Ha. He is absolute trash and he and Sejin should just get married and get the heck away from everyone!
The strongest point of this drama are the main leads – Yeon Doo and Tae Kyung are great! i think without them (and the actors playing them), a lot of viewers would be turned off! But they are doing a fantastic job so far and makes us viewers want to root for them even more!! Can’t wait for the contract marriage to start!!
