We’re halfway done with the story and I’m still loving this weekend drama, mainly because of the 2 leads, Young Guk and Dandan. The rest of the cast, not so much but story is still addicting to watch.
Episodes 13 and 14 focused on the blossoming romance between Young Guk and Dandan, with Young Guk unsure of falling in love with a much younger girl and Dandan being so brave to confess to her boss and a man way older than her.
Jo Sara, still deluding herself to be the best match for Young Guk can’t believe Young Guk doesn’t like her even if she made every effort for him. It doesn’t count if Young Guk doesn’t like you back, honey. Don’t demand that he has to like you back just because you do. To be honest, I’m not even sure when Sara is getting her thick face from. Not to demean her, but she isn’t successful, she is hiding an illegitimate child that she can’t even be honest, and she is manipulative liar, and lastly, she doesn’t even care for the kids, except for Sejong. What makes her think Young Guk will like her if she treats his kids that way?
The kids obviously adore Dandan more than Sara and would probably help them get together if they only knew!
Normally, I also will be skeptical in this kind of relationship, but since I know them both from watching them, and I do have friends married with a large age gap, and I want to say that each couple/relationship is different. And we should all mind our own business. As long as the couple are happy, then should be fine. As friends or acquaintances, all we can do is understand them. But of course, if we feel like something is wrong, then we should also tell our friend.
I totally didn’t expect the amnesia plot and I hate how Sara, her thief mom an the stepmom are being this horrible people around Young Guk. I can understand the stepmom although I don’t pity her, but Sara and her mom are irritating! How can you say that you love the guy and lie to his face?? It’s ridiculous! I’m just glad that even though Young Guk is 22yo, he is still sharp enough to make his own decisions.
I’m loving that Young Guk and Dandan are still falling in love all over again. Just shows that even with amnesia, even if Young Guk was still young and single, he will still choose Dandan over Sara.
Can’t wait for the next episodes!! I hope Young Guk gets his memory back. 10 episodes of amnesia has gone long enough and i can’t stand another minute of lying Sara. I want Young Guk to kick her out of the house, even the stepmom. And I’m waiting for the day when the stepmom finally founds out who stole her gold and cash. Sara and her mom deserves to go to prison!! (although being a weekend drama, they probably will still get a happy ever after!! ugh!!)
Speaking of happy ever after, I wish they don’t pair Sara with Uncle Guk. Seriously, Uncle Guk is one of the nicest guys in this drama and he doesn’t deserve a bitch of a wife.
I still don’t like the story of Dae Bum and Se Ryeon, I think if Dae Bum is serious, he should man up and work harder. and I think Se Ryeon, instead of making Dae Bum a boytoy, she should help him study and setup capital for a business to help him be successful.
Another character I love is Dandan’s father, Soo Chul. I honestly want him to get back together with Anna Kim, although I know that’s going to be hard since he is married to another bum (ugh!! another hateful character). I hate how she fake cries, i know she is better than Sara’s mom, but sometimes she is too greedy. Instead of helping Soo Chul, she just prefers to wait for money from her children and easy life instead of work. Plus, I’m sure once Soo chul finds out who Anna is, there will be hell.
