Young Lady and Gentleman eps 41-46

Final stretch.. I loved these 6 episodes because the truths keep coming out! Anna being Dandan’s birth mother, Sara’s lies. Young Guk finally stopping the whole craziness (though he is still so indecisive when it comes to his relationship with Dandan).

Rating for episodes 41-46: 7.5

Young Lady and Gentleman Eps 33-40

More than halfway through and this weekend drama keeps going downhill, which is really unfortunate because this started so well, like a fun and light family drama. I don’t know if the writer got drunk and changed the story from nice though flawed characters to psycho selfish people.

I’m still rooting for Young Guk and Dandan’s happy ever after. Even though Young Guk is also to blame sometimes for the heartache, I know he just wants Dandan and the people around him happy. But please let your Chairman personality finally show up because I’m so tired of bitchy Sara, the raging stepmom, Dandan’s selfish parents plus money hungry stepmom.

The kids continue to be the happy pill in this drama. I just want the kids to be happy and see more family activities like this. But can they let Jaeni in on the happiness, because she is being kept in the dark for so long.

Anna Kim and Dandan’s dad are the worst people in this drama. Esp Dandan’s dad who has no shame. yes, Young Guk is older and has 3 kids, I get that, but like Yeonshil said, it’s not like he’s a criminal. He still looks young for his age, respectful and a sweet husband and father. I’m sure Young Guk will support Dandan in whatever career or decision she makes.

I’m not even bothered with the rest of the stories. Even Daebeom and Seryeon’s story is boring. Poor Uncle Geon is too smitten with Sara to see how awful she is. Yeonshil pulling Anna Kim’s hair is funny but Yeonshil is also terrible parent.

I’m way behind because it’s difficult to motivate myself to continue watching, but I will see through the end because I already spent months (since 2021!) watching the drama.

And because i can’t wait for this drama to be OVER and catch the drama that will replace this, which will stars Yoon Si Yoon!!! 🙂

My rating for episodes 33 to 40: 7/10

Young Lady and Gentleman ep 25-32

I’m not very happy with how the show is progressing. Young Guk’s memory came back but erased all his memory from the last 3 months which was bad! Sara gets another free pass, Dandan has to wait again for Young Guk (and she’s still not slapping Sara), and Dae Ran is still lazy a** stepmom.

Young Guk also continues to be hot and cold towards Dandan, which is getting annoying. C’mon, make up your mind! If you can’t even decide to love a girl, I don’t know how he is able to run a big group!!! One minute, he pushes Dandan away and hurting her feelings. The next minute he rushes to her side when she is sad or crying. I think if Dandan was in her 30s or 40s, she wouldn’t take this crap from a boyfriend!!! But since she is young and naive, she just keeps accepting the punches thrown at her, believing that love heals all wounds. or love conquers all.

The only highlight in these 10 episodes are Sechan and Sejong! I’m so glad the kids found out about YG and DD and they are supportive of their relationship, esp. if it means getting rid of psycho Sara as their step mom. I honestly don’t believe that Sara loves Young Guk or even her son, with the way she is behaving. I feel like she thinks she deserves the money and the rich lifestyle, just because her son is living in the household and she’s bee “taking care” of the household for years! So deluded!

And the worst part?? Even with her lying and scheming ways, Uncle Geon is right beside her and she got a nice, solid, handsome boyfriend while YG and Dandan are still stuck with their non relationship relationship. Ugh!! Life is so unfair, really! The evil ones get their wishes, the nice ones get nothing. That’s both a sad reality and a lesson for nice people.

As for the other characters/couples, same thing. Daebum and Seryeon just have the same problem since episode 1. I think they should just give up for now and go on with their own separate lives. It’s really hard when families are involved.

Another disaster is Soochul and Anna. Soochul was one of the few that i liked in the show, and he turned out to be the worst one!!! I hate Yeonshil, but having an “affair” with Anna wasn’t a good idea. He finally founds out who Anna is and almost killed her! OMG!! Anna should just fly back to US and get away from her crazy family.

Rating for the 8 episodes: 7.5

Young Lady and Gentleman eps 13-24

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.

Young Lady and Gentleman is available in VIU.
