    Nice drama… slow moving, but most characters fit their role except the loan shark lady – aberrant acting. Fun & easy to watch. Where’s their tv ratings?

    Sa Gwi-Jung — another ugly high ended evil witch. I hope she looses everything she owns some where in this show. That Mr. Kim that works for her knew that there was nothing irregular in the Geum Jung-Do’s family life. How do these guys work for these evil people who think it is OK to ruin someone’s life.

    Looks like there is a bit of jealousy going on with Dr. Han
    with Joon Sang as he likes Sul-Hwa also. I wish they would stop making all the shows with these darn 3-way triangles. Boring.

    Why there are no episodes for yesterday and today as well? Is this going to be dropped?

    Aidah Abdullah Says:

    I am also waiting anxiously for Monday and Tuesday episodes. The other two dramas I am also following, Love is drop by drop and 1st love again usually are posted at the same time but I don’t know why Golden Pouch was posted later than the other two since last 2 weeks.

  15. 15
    Aidah Abdullah Says:

    I already found out the reason for the delay. It will not be aired this week due to running presidential candidates’ special program that is being aired this week. So to all you lovers of this drama be patient and wait till next week

    I think this drama is being sacked since it has not been aired for two weeks. Other daily dramas from other channels continue to air shows daily. Maybe the poor ratings cause to cease the show. Not airing the show to give way for political programs do not make sense. Hopefully, they can replace a good one as soon as possible.

    I like Joon Sang. It seems like he is the odd man out. His grandmother at least loves him and appreciates him. His personality is polite and quiet. Too bad his TV show didn’t work out. It seemed to be the right balance for him.

    Seo Woo-Rim is a beautiful woman.

    I like Kim Ji Han. He is a good actor. I also like Joon Sang. So can’t figure out who I like best for Sul Hwa Both of the guys and she would make a good couple I probably am rooting for Joon Sang because I feel he is rather a lonely person and so wants his mother to like him and accept him. Having a girlfriend wold be nice for him. The usual triangle again with one girl and two guys.

    Prima donna Geum Se-Na doesn’t work, so I would assume she has no money per se. But she dresses like she is a rich babe from a rich family. Not digging her attitude very much, she thinks she is better than other people. Her parents must support her 100% with clothes, food, etc.

    Poor Ji-Sang if he ends up marrying her.

    I hope Min-Hee doesn’t end up with Joon-Sang. The other person that I like from that screwy family is Min-kyo Eventually it will come out that he made the mistake on the medication that Dr. Han took the rap for.

    Mr. Kim – who works for crazy loan shark lady – no listing for who he is.

    FrancescaPPY Says:

    Dr Han is the Yoon family’s first son and not the current Joon Sang. He has memory of Sul Hwa from his childhood. So the 3 of them lives in the same compound.
    It will be real sad to terminate airing this drama.
    Maybe they can shrink it down to say 70 or 80 episodes, and not leave viewers without some kind of End to story!

    I personally don’t see why the Rich can slap the Poor at will though in Korean dramas!

    Shu Says:

    You won’t regret starting. A good reasonable drama to watch in between your frustrating wait for updates. Hi Han has always shined in his roles. Great to watch him. And the producer and the rich family’s grandson, handsome to watch. He was in Doctors

    i like joon sang for sul hwa, pls writers, do the right thing, feel and see what the viewers felt and seen evrytime they in frame together…..

    Mokoduk Says:

    Lee Sun Ho who plays Joon Sang has a face that makes for the ideal amoral rich brat who stomps on everyone he meets. He’s played such roles in other dramas effectively. No matter how benevolent the character, some actors for whatever reason just don’t do justice to the good-guy role.

    Is it over? If not, where could go online to I watch this drama episodes for free? Thanks

    Jake Says:

    There was no episode shown last Friday march 10th. This show is always the target of missed shows. The rate this is going I think producers should cut down the number of episodes to 100 or even less.’I am wondering how this show does in tv ratings.

    @ 37 — Drama Queen–

    Here are a couple sites that you can watch this show with Eng subs.



    If you put Golden Pouch in web search, there also are other sights.

    Rose Says:

    I don’t why Nan-Sul doesn’t like Joon-Sang???? He really tries to stay low key in the family and he and Ji-Sang get along very well, which is great. Neither of the son’s so far wanted to work within the office per se of the father’s compny, but incidentail situation create them both ending up working for the company.

    I feel Joon-Sang knows what type of girl Min-Hee is, so hopefully he does not end up with her which I said previously.

    I can’t believe how hard these parents in these dramas work to get ther children married into rich families. Getting data information on the rich children and telling lies, etc. etc. etc. Geez…..it is all so boring and tiring.

    This is a good drama, I am enjoying it.

    Noya Says:

    Episode 79 didn’t move along a whole lot. They’re really dragging, I suppose to milk advertising revenue. Still next episode it seems Suk Hoon couldn’t contain his affection for Sul Hwa, taking it to the next level with a lip slam dunk.

  32. 32
    Mi Poong Says:

    Joon Sang has no biological connection to his family. I am suspicious that Han Suk Hoon’s biological father is Yoon Jae Rim and his mother, Jae Rim’s first wife. If that’s correct then Sul Hwa will marry into that family, but not to Joon Sang.

  33. 33
    Rose Says:

    @ Mi Poong —-

    What happened to Jae Rim’s first wife??

    Is it Jin Jo – the friend of Nan Sul and Jung Do?? Or a woman not related to either of them??

    I find it interesting in all these dramas, when the main stars have some thing going on that is personal in their lives which may cause them some harm or whatever, they just up and walk out of the office. And either come back after they handled whatever the problem was or just don’t. They don’t tell their supervisor – just walk out. Only in dramas can you do this.

    Even when the actor/actress is mad or hysterical over something, they throw everything off the desk, dresser, etc. but in the next scene the same items are all back in place. Doesn’t anything break – even plants are the same. Is everything made of rubber???
