  24. 24 : Paulyn Says:


    I’ve problem watching it online so I prefer to download the chinese subbed file.

    Hope someone can help to provide the download links.

  25. 25 : KDaddict Says:

    I like the private tutor with eye-glasses. He is cute and handsome, and a good actor. Is he Park Yoo Hwan, Micky’s younger brother? He looks too young to be.

  26. 26 : KDaddict Says:

    Kim Suk Hoon is also good looking in this drama; not so much in his photo on this website. I did not notice him in Hong Gil Dong at all.

  27. 27 : KDaddict Says:

    Re #27:
    Sorry, lapse of logic. I mean the private tutor with glasses looks older than Micky Yoochun, and so doesn’t look like his younger brother.

  28. 28 : chicka Says:

    Hmm, I’m having doubts about seeing the drama myself. Would anyone please tell me about the outline of the drama? A review would really help, please.. I don’t know if it’s worth watching 50 episodes. :3

  29. 29 : KDaddict Says:

    Boy, the 3 male actors are all gorgeous! Editor is manly; private tutor is plain handsome; mini-uncle is so cute. All are good for the eyes, heehee.
    @Paulyn: For Chinese subbed file, don’t people just go to tudou.com?

  30. 30 : KDaddict Says:

    I feel so bad for the lady whose husband is a gambler. She has had nothing but hardship. Now she is abt to lose the daughter she raised and loves but is in no financial condition to welcome the one she gave birth to. What a double-wammy!

  31. 31 : lovejoo Says:

    geum ran ah i dont like this girl at all, she just want to much and she forgot about hwo raised her up and how difficult it was. and its not like its jungwons fault that they where swiched. she has so much hate in her eyes

  32. 32 : KDaddict Says:

    Geun Ran is not as likable as Jung Won. Geum Ran does hate her gambler father, the goons who come to her to collect gambling debts, and her fiance who dumps her the minute he passes the bar exam. She hates the circumstances she is in. Her expression is much softer when she is with her poor mother (see ep. 12–evening scene). There is desperation and fear in her eyes, desperation to escape asap and fear that she can’t. I may not like her, but I can sympathize.

  33. 33 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 13 will be exciting & interesting.
    The rich mum asked both girls to meet at the restaurant without them knowing & the poor mum is also present. All caught by surprise. The rich mum ask the 2 daughters to choose who they want to stay with in future. Geum Ran choose the rich mum & Kim Hyun Joo is at a lost……………

  34. 34 : KDaddict Says:

    Kim Hyun Joo (Jung Won) is angry, tells her rich mom she can only live with one girl, that she must choose which one, and storms out of restaurant!
    It’d be heaven for the poor girl to live in luxury, but very awkward for JungWon to stay, knowing that none of it belongs to her.

  35. 35 : lovejoo Says:

    oh poor Jung Won i pity her. that geum ran she kills me. she is so selfish and all she want is money she dosnt even think about the poor mum

  36. 36 : KDaddict Says:

    Private tutor with glasses, Da Bum (Jang Dong Ho) is so handsome, sweet and gentle! How come he hasn’t been in a drama before? He is not listed in the Actor List on koreandrama.org!

  37. 37 : KDaddict Says:

    Typo in 38: I mean Kang Dong Ho.

  38. 38 : Superbear1 Says:

    I really like Jung Won. Even though she was put in a situation when she was made to choose between the mothers, the hurting girl is able to put aside her pain to care for her birth mum. Love that this character is so considerate, she would rather bear all the burden herself than see the other around her be hurt by her. Really sweet.

  39. 39 : lovejoo Says:

    @Superbear1,, you are sooo right she is very kind and sweet unlike geum ran. oh i just cant like that geum ran too selfish. but my lovely kim hyun joo is so good i love her so

  40. 40 : KDaddict Says:

    This is a really good script writer and script. It reflects people as they really are. It is easy to be sweet and considerate when one grows up well educated and well protected. Yet even Jung Won decides in a split second she wants to safeguard the life that she has, and doesn’t want to live among her real family members.

    It is only human to want to escape poverty, gambling debts that never end, and a life of hopelessness. It is her family wanting to hold her back that is selfish and cruel.

  41. 41 : KDaddict Says:

    It’d be better if GeumRan doesn’t rush everything & everyone so much. She’s is making things difficult for everybody. Private Tutor says: U should not disregard what is around and behind u to run forward.
    Her ambitions are immense now:
    On top of rich parents, she wants to kick JungWon out; she wants to join the publishing house; she also wants the Editor. In the end, it may turn out that the publishing house is less impt to her than the guy, but he is already falling for JungWon. GeumRan will lose all. Good show.

  42. 42 : lovejoo Says:

    @KDaddict.. you are right.. i hate her i cant stand her. she is so alike her real mother selfish. like her real mother forgot her love for jung won and pushed her away ehen jung won tried to hug her she also forgot her love for the mother who rasied her for 29 years. such a mother such a daughter and jung won is alike her real mother kind hearted and sweet .

  43. 43 : KDaddict Says:

    I really feel very sorry for the poor mother. She has such a hard life; now Geum Ran leaves, and she has a heart attack……. Hope she’ll be alright. I know Jung Won will come to her rescue, the good girl that she is.

  44. 44 : Haizah Says:

    #27 & #29 Micky’s brother is the mini-uncle character. His real name is Park Yoo Hwan. Hope this helps

  45. 45 : KimHyunJoo Fan Says:

    Love this drama…Kim Hyun Joo…fighting^_^

  46. 46 : KDaddict Says:

    It’s going to be frustrating to watch for a while as Geum Ran makes things difficult at home for Jung Won after she moves in in ep. 15. She’ll come between Jung Won and their mother. She shows herself to be a bad person after all, abandoning her poor mom, lying cheating and scheming!
    #46: there is a video on the press conference of Shining, where Micky showed up to support his little brother. Both are soooo cute.

  47. 47 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ricky Park Yoo Hwan looks better in tv than pictures. Have you seen his elder brother Micky Yoochun acted in Sungkyunkwan Scandal? For this SS drama – After started the show, i find it so nice that i could not stop that i finished 20 episodes in less than a week.
    I love Micky so much. He is so adorable and charming. Most important – he can act. Hope you all enjoy the drama. :)

  48. 48 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 15 ending – Kim Hyun Joo got slept by her stepmom becoz Geum Ran pretend to be bullied by KHJ. How can the stepmom do that !!!!!!

    Ep 16. Geum Ran stole KHJ diary notebook info & contacts. Change its cover & keep it for herself.

    KHJ looks fresh with her new short bob hair style. :)
    Geum Ran also looks sexy with her new long wavy hair.

    I am so happy that Kim Suk Hoon is a rich man too. If I am not wrong, he is staying in the same district as KHJ – just a few houses away.

    Another 34 episodes to go. Looking forward to it. Hope they can sub it ASAP..

  49. 49 : KDaddict Says:

    If I was Jung Won, I’d get a nice apt and move out, to take myself out of harm’s way. She has a good education, a good job; she can date the Editor and go on with her life. Buy fewer 5 million won handbags and give a monthly stipend to the poor mother to help her out. Let the rich parents find out what kind of a person Geum Ran is.
    @OK,OK,OK: SKG Scandal was easily the best KD last year (not counting Secret Garden). I don’t like historical dramas, but this was different. Micky actually looked good in ancient Korean head dress, which few men do.
    It is so funny when Ricky as mini-uncle says these things that are supposed to come from a much older man. He is cute and cuddly and fair skinned, like a baby.

  50. 50 : KDaddict Says:

    Dae Bum, private tutor and law student: Am I the only one who thinks that Dae Bum is sweet and handsome?

  51. 51 : OK OK OK Says:


    I find Micky Yoochun is the most handsome guy even with moustache. He is so man. he he he :)

  52. 52 : KDaddict Says:

    This show is getting frustrating to watch. Jung Won should not turn her back on Geum Ran. JW most certainly should not leave GR alone in her room. I’d put a lock on the door or at least put impt things in a drawer or wardrobe with a lock on it. A good driver is a defensive driver. You have a big rat in the house, my dear!

  53. 53 : KDaddict Says:

    The Editor is very bookish, also strong and silent, not the type that most women are attracted to. But his growing concern for JungWon makes him attractive to us. GR will try to come between them, but she can eat her heart out in the end!
    I’ve seen this actor b4 in Secret Lovers. He is better here.

  54. 54 : Charlie Says:

    I’m attracted to watch the show, but I can’t understand completely the idea and culture behind it. How could it portrait Geum Ran as a traitor, and is in favor of Jung Won? Jung Won already stole Geum Ran’s life for 28 years, although unintentionally, but she’s 28, should get out of that home, even the parents have raised her, it’s time for their family time.
    I don’t like Ung Won at all, she’s so ugly, so is the No. 2 male actor, Dae Bum, he’s belong ridiculous.

  55. 55 : KDaddict Says:

    I m just curious: Why did u say Dae Bum is “belong ridiculous”?

  56. 56 : KDaddict Says:

    Micky’s JYJ has a new DVD out called Their Rooms. It is a “music essay”, with 6 tracks and photos.

  57. 57 : Charlie Says:

    @57 KDaddict,
    It was a typo. I meant to say beyond ridiculous. He’s just not my type at all. He looks weird, I couldn’t bear to look at him. Obviously something went wrong when he tried to improve his look.
    The show is starting to make Geum Ran a bad girl; she’s starting to steal JW’s diary and acting manipulative. Maybe it also implicitly expressing that she’s stealing JW’s life now. Why? Just because she was raised in a poor family? JW doesn’t want to give up her place in that house and go back to her parents, it seems the drama is saying that this is acceptable. I don’t know, I got frustrated, but I’m still flowing the drama, hope it will into its points.

  58. 58 : Charlie Says:

    I just read your earlier comments. Yes. You’d be the only one who adores Dae Bum :-)
    Hope my early comment wouldn’t offend you. People have different tastes.

  59. 59 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ 56 Charlie

    I am very surprised with yr comments Ung Won is ugly. The name closest to this is Jung Won which is Kim Hyun Joo.
    If she is the one you said is ugly, then can you pls elaborate – her character or which part of the feature is ugly. I don’t think if a person “is so ugly” can be lead actress and well like by so many people for so many years. I am one of her fans.
    When i search for her photos to be uploaded, i was amazed she took so many photos and most of them look pretty & lovely.
    Even you said its in the eye of the beholder, i still cannot agree that she is ugly base on her look. She got a lovely face, figure, height and she even got class. :)

  60. 60 : Anonyms Says:

    Kim Hyun Joo is a talented and beautiful person^^

  61. 61 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ 62 Anonyms

    I am glad you upload the 2 links about Kim Hyun Joo. Now I know her better. Kim Hyun Joo is a talented and beautiful person with inner & outer beauty.
    The little girl that KHJ visited was so adorable. Too bad, the 2nd youtube link is not sub in english, so don’t understand whats KHJ said but i know she is doing something good. :)

  62. 62 : lovejoo Says:

    @Charlie.. what is wrong with you? you call kim hyun joo for ugly? then you cant see very well. to me she is the most beutiful acterss ever and please dont leave any more comments here if its about jung won. thnx.

  63. 63 : lovejoo Says:

    KDaddict . I also like Dae-bum very much and i think he is very cute and kind

  64. 64 : KDaddict Says:

    Obviously people have different tastes. Each actor or actress has fans as well as detractors. The basic etiquette of chat boards is not to insult an actor/actress someone else likes. We come here to share our pleasure in KD. Let’s chat in that spirit or not at all.

  65. 65 : KDaddict Says:

    Thanks for making me NOT the only person who likes Dae Bum.
    Dae Bum is a quiet n intelligent person who observes Geum Ran’s behavior with compassion. He is sympathetic when she is down, n tries to nudge her in the right direction when she is greedy. Like The Editor, he is upright and kind.
    The actor is very handsome n sweet. I certainly hope to see him in more dramas in future.

  66. 66 : KDaddict Says:

    Poor mom loses her eyesight. I’d like to say that Both girls come to her aid n find their humanity in the progress. But from the Preview for ep.19, it looks like Jung Won will be the one who does so (first).

  67. 67 : Charlie Says:

    What’s wrong with me? Well, let me think. None. I came from a country where I have freedom of speech. That much I’m pretty sure. And no personal attacks please.

    I think Kim Hyun Joo is not pretty, but ugly, mostly because her lips. She doesn’t have typical Korean lips. Her lips really turned me off. For rest of her, nothing’s that attractive either. Maybe she’s a good actress, the character she’s portraying is pretty annoying.
    I don’t like Dae Bum either. His look is unnatural and he looks confused all the time.
    If it’s not because the story line is a little interesting, Guem Ran is beautiful and the editor is handsome and pleasant to watch, I probably won’t watch this show at all.

    “lovejoo” and “OK OK OK”, you can like all you like and love all you love, who’s stopping you. Why are you so upset and even thought you own the broad? Have you heard of chemistry?

  68. 68 : OK OK OK Says:

    I have read some of your comments elsewhere and also with your comments about Kim Hyun Joo. I guess why you hv said that comment but did write it out here. I totally agree with lovejoo that you not only blind but also a gay who dislikes pretty women.

  69. 69 : Charlie Says:

    What comment are you referring to?
    Me, gay? LOL…..
    You call anyone who doesn’t like your female idol blind and gay?

  70. 70 : Lovemoon Says:

    Next weekend, both girls were finally back to their own biological family. Can’t wait to see how many ep. for Jung Won got kicking out or quit her current job. From review look like she will have a job that she likes (she hugs a nameplate)Same for her love life. Who will fall and pursue for her? Wish all three of them will be (chief editor, private tutor, and the bastard GR ‘s ex- fiancer) due to her friendly personality. I just like to see any person that has good heart will win all even though it will give JW more headache. That is Korean drama. It won’t be easy for Chief editor since his mom didn’t approve JW and with GR in the pic so it will take a lot of efforts for both of them to win. Look like the private tutor starts to have feeling for her but probably won’t win her heart but will create a lot of jealousy for JW and the chief editor. Sorry, for the long comment.

  71. 71 : lovejoo Says:

    @Charlie.. no one cares anymore about what a gay think. if you do not see the beauty in kim hyun joo then i to have to tell you there is something wrong with you. I also talk from a free country but that dosent mean that i can say whatever i want to make myself feel good and dont care about other. and by the way didint i tell you to stop leaving comments here. you just how should i say it ahhh you make this site look ugly and untidy. so no more gays please,

  72. 72 : KDaddict Says:

    Now that Geum Ran knows the Editor is rich, she’ll seriously dig her claws into him. You see her repeating to herself his mother’s address: 457, 457. But I’ve confidence in him. He’ll not be easily swayed.
    As for the private tutor, I think that if Jung Won comes to see/stay with her birth mother, she and private tutor might get close(r) due to proximity and opportunity. That’ll make Editor jealous. Not a bad thing, is it?

  73. 73 : Anonyms Says:

    @ 62 Anonyms
    I’m so agree..KHJ has beauty in and out…, the little girl [Seulbi] that KHJ visited was so cute and adorable, especially while she was doing the ‘stomach bow’ when KHJ was leaving from the house. It was from Good Neighbors program. KHJ is joining this program for Angel Project…to give the kids the warmth gift on winter by spending the time with them. KHJ is an angel for them^^..
    Actually I am waiting for KHJ drama to watch….at last with ‘Shining’….the story is more and more interesting…

  74. 74 : Anonyms Says:

    Sorry for my typo for comment 74 – should be @63 OK OK OK not to myself^^….

  76. 76 : OK OK OK Says:

    end of episode 19

    I am so happy that Jung Won & Editor Song Seung Joon seal their love with kisses. ha ha :)

  77. 77 : KDaddict Says:

    The photos of Kim Hyun Joo are even more beautiful than she is in the drama. I think that’s because they often have to film without much sleep for days. Love her in that beige and brown dress in geometric pattern. She is pretty yet has an intelligent face. Thank you.
    I haven’t seen it yet, but am real happy to know that the serious and shy Editor finally found the courage to show his love with a kiss. Now we can feel better for Jung Won. Thx.

  78. 78 : Lovemoon Says:

    Anybody cares to give us a quick translate here. Thanks in advance.
    –Want to know what the editor SSJ said to JW after he dropped her off at her house (after the kissing at his apt).
    –At the end of ep 20, the editor SSJ noticed that their write-up has the same subject, isn’t it? Please, give us the translate of the title. The contents can’t be the same since they wrote their own. We know that.

  79. 79 : KDaddict Says:

    Rich mom absolutely doesn’t love Jung Won anymore. She doesn’t call JW, worry abt her, etc. In ep 19, she wants her husband to take the Publishing House away from JW, becos she is “someone else’s daughter”.
    I’m glad JW will be moving out, just like I’d said she should.
    Geum Ran gave up her soon-to-be blind mom for a car.

  80. 80 : KDaddict Says:

    After Geum Ran saw Editor in front of the big house on the hill, the first thing she did was to try and find out how much the house was worth. What a girl!

  81. 81 : OK OK OK Says:

    ep 19
    I like this part when JW uncle went into Geum Ran’s room and saw the diary.
    He said how come the handwriting look so alike like JW’s . Are they twins?? ha ha

    When GR found out where SSH stays, she ask JW how much a bungalow in this district cost? Is it 10 billion won ? JW said yes. Is SSH a rich man? JW said no. SSH mum just own a small ox soup shop. GR just keep mum

  82. 82 : KDaddict Says:

    @OK OK OK-83:
    Geum Ran figures she knows that Editor is a rich guy whereas Jung Won doesn’t. Of course she isn’t abt to share that kind of All Important info with JW!

    Mini Uncle will one day realize that it is not Geum Ran’s handwriting that is similar to JW’s, but it is JW’s diary that has been stolen. i am waiting for that cat to be let out of the bag!

  83. 83 : Allkpop Says:

    You’re welcome.
    Love this drama….thank you for some hints in the ep19…..

  84. 84 : Soompi Says:


  85. 85 : KDaddict Says:

    If I was rich mom, I’d rejoice at having 2 daughters to love instead of one. It is not necessary to throw away a daughter she has raised and loved for 29 years, in order to give ALL her love to a daughter she’s just met.

    If I was Geum Ran, I’d welcome Jung Won as a partner in taking care of poor mom. It is not necessary to wash her hands of a mother who has loved her unreservedly for 29 years, in order to have a good life for herself.

  86. 86 : KDaddict Says:

    Geum Ran’s ex-father is an able-bodied person. What is preventing him from getting a job or helping out in the shop.
    Geum Ran’s ex-sister, Hwang Tae Ran, is loud, cheap and crass. And she is gonna have an affair.
    Geum Ran is getting a 4 X 4. I hope she runs over the creep wearing braces. ;p

  87. 87 : Lovemoon Says:

    Ah…sweet. I got my own answers now after I finished watching the ep 20 in chinese sub.
    I can’t stand the GR’s ex boyfriend. I am not sure that character existed in this world or only in drama.

  88. 88 : KDaddict Says:

    It can be frustrating watching KDs in the raw. But the minute sb mentions where they are watching a subtitled KD, the copyright owner complains, and it has to be taken down from the internet. So I’ve learnt to make up the story in my own head just watching the raw stream. The alternative is to learn Korean. hee hee.

  89. 89 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 20:
    Is Korean society so sexually repressive that a grown woman (29) n a grown man (30+), both u grads, both co-workers, are so beside themselves after a kiss in broad daylight that she has to leave right away, bang her head in her room, n he stands frozen in the street, n they’ve to avoid each other next day?

    The Editor seems to be not rich, but filthy rich, see cathedral ceiling in living room, 3 safes in his mom’s room, gold bricks n treasures inside, n security guards in-house. But his room is small n modest, like him?
    At the office, GeumRan looks at him with so much longing…. I hope he breaks her heart into little pieces that all the king’s soldiers n all the king’s men, can’t put together again!

    @90 KDaddict

    I ever mentioed where i watched the korean drama with s u b bcoz sb has asked me. Otoke, otoke???
    So did you sign up any Korean Language course or just learn thru KD :)

    I think SSH did not express out his love for JW more outwardly becoz his mom had told him he can do anything he wishes except choosing a wife.

    Both also argue alot and have their own misunderstanding of each other love interest. They didn’t expect they will kiss each other before knowing each other so well like lovers – most people will feel awkward in that kind of situation.

    Anyway, episode 20, JW has told SSH that she likes him. :)

  91. 91 : Lovemoon Says:

    I like to share the additional preview of ep 21 that I found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOEK5uZWxus&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
    Many thanks to “smilemeixin” who always load the good HD preview for us to watch even though it is raw.

  92. 92 : KDaddict Says:

    My favorite moment in the 1st 20 eps. is this:
    Jung Won telling rich mom she will move out:
    “Let’s live apart for a while. I want independence. I hope you’ll give permission. This is a chance to prevent our relationship from deteriorating further”. Then she walked away. It’s perfectly executed w politeness and precision. JW go go go!
    They kissed. But their behavior after the kiss is anti-climatic.

  93. 93 : KDaddict Says:

    @OK OK OK -92:
    Practice makes perfect. The more one watches KD, w/ or w/out subs, the better one gets at understanding it, w/ or w/out subs. And learning some stock phrases in Korean go a long way as signposts.
    I wish there was a way to pay a monthly subscription to watch ALL the KD we like!
    Thanks for the Preview to ep. 21.

  94. 94 : Lovemoon Says:

    Wow, a lot of things happening in ep 21. So sad. This is just guessing w/o knowing exactly what it said.
    – Poor mom found out both girls like the same guy.
    -Look like rich mom keep pushing in direction where JW didn’t have much choice but moving out.
    –Glad the police showed up and put the gambling dad in jail.
    Same topic of their paper -how it will resolve. Can’t wait for ep22. From ep 22 preview 1).editor SSJ will have a discussion w/ both of them in the conf room. 2)Look like JW/GR’s young uncle probably will be the one helping JW.

  95. 95 : KDaddict Says:

    @Lovemoon-Re Ep 21:
    Did police show up to put gambler dad in jail? I didn’t see that. Or did I miss it by ff?
    I thought his friend called up to say there’ll be a chance to join a gambling meet, so he scrambled to steal (GR’s Compensation money) n rob (cash in JW’s wallet) the capital n ran off to do so.
    Where is the Preview for Ed 22? It isn’t on youtube under smilemiexin.

  96. 96 : KDaddict Says:

    Jung Won is certainly made to feel unwanted n unloved at home. She feel she is in their way between new mother n daughter in the big house. I hope she doesn’t move back with her poor parents. That’d be too much to deal with. Getting an apt for herself would be nice. She can visit her poor mom at will, and limit her exposure to the rest of them! Both gambler dad and Tae Ran, who is abt to have an affair, are trouble.

  97. 97 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 22:
    The matter of the book proposal will be solved soon, as Jung Won now knows that Geum Ran has stolen the contents of her notebook n thrown away its cover at the street-side food stall.
    I’m glad mini uncle caught GR eavesdropping outside her parents’ room.
    But rich mom is way too nasty to JW. What’ll her repayment (disappointment) be in siding with GR?

  98. 98 : KDaddict Says:

    In ep 24 n preview for ep 25:
    Geum Ran wearing heavy make-up, wearing big fancy earrings, screaming at Jung Won at the top of of her, with hatred and bitterness, makes her so unlikeable.
    I think JW has told her nice dad that she needs to move in with poor mom who can’t see.

  99. 99 : Thara Says:

    Do you guys think Kang Dong Ho is similar to Jung Kyung Ho? For me, they look similar and I love both :)
    This drama is a nice one to watch but I am still at episode 8.

  100. 100 : KDaddict Says:

    So glad u like Da Bum ssi. To me, he looks “pure of heart”.

  101. 101 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 22

    I hope that JW’s gambler father be locked up in the prison forever & ever. Gambles away family’s hard earn money with no repentance. Still got the cheek to go back to the house – pretend to be hurt to get family’s pity. His son-in-law must also be kicked out. Even you are filial, you are just helping your father in law to get worse becoz you keep covering him up his idiot habits.

    I think mini uncle went to JW’s office to expose GR’s diary incident. GR is so mad that she chase JW out of the house.

  102. 102 : KDaddict Says:

    Miss Lee Yoo Ri:
    We all love to hate Geum Ran. Her expressions in this series are beginning to show her dark side, around ep 20. With a movement of the mouth, eyes, or cheeks you make us hate her, despise her. It is a thankless job playing a bad person in a show, especially the enemy of the leading character, whom everyone loves. I just want to thank you for doing such a good job. You make the show so much better. Fighting!

  103. 103 : Lovemoon Says:

    To KDaddict
    The rich mom got jealousy since JW brought her poor mom the outfit from her rich mom‘s favorite brand name clothes store. That why she spoke all those nasty things to JW‘s poor mom and JW since JW was kind of yelling at her rich mom. I guess JW was deal with that situation in a wrong way too.
    Ah, we have to wait for another week for the same title paper issue to be resolved. Hooray… Look like JW is the winner from Ep 23 Preview.
    JW and chief SSJ still loves to argue back and forth. Can’t wait for Ep 22 sub coming out so I can understand what SSJ and the private tutor said to each other. Love this week 2 ep. becasue we got to know more how their feeling towards each other –JW/SSJ and the private tutor/JW.
    Who wants who to be with JW here? Care to comments, anybody???

  104. 104 : OK OK OK Says:

    When 4 leads meet outside JW’s house, SSH is jealous to see JW said Hi to Dae Bum so happily. When SSH knew that DB recorded JW singing (when the recorder accidently drop on the floor while walking & listening to it) he knew that DB is interested in JW. He ask DB to delete it but DB refuse. (I hope i am right) :)

    For me, Dae Bum is an interesting lively smart guy to be with becoz he has passed his difficult exam while i find Editor still behave like a “stone”

    Even if JW marries DB – he will still be able to support her becoz he will find a good job anyway – but i know Editor will end up with JW. ha ha

    If JW date / marries SSH in future, she still has to face the nasty lady (editor’s mum)

  105. 105 : KDaddict Says:

    @OK OK OK:
    I am soo with you abt Editor & DaBum. While Editor is good looking, upright n filthy rich (at least his mom is), he is as interesting as a piece of wood or stone. Guys who can’t communicate their feelings, the strong n silent type, are no fun at all. Da Bum is also good-looking, in a less manly way, understanding, sweet and communicative. I’d pick Da Bum over Editor any day. But just as you said, Editor is the main lead here, so he’ll end up with JW whatever we say. Of course, he’ll sober up and be nice to her ultimately. She must face his mom. Or else it won’t take up 50 eps. ; )
    Editor n JW are arguing all the time, cos KD writers have the idea that bickering is part of falling in love. I can see that JW is angry cos she is frustrated w/him. Who wouldn’t be? He is dragging his feet cos of his promise to his mom, n cos he is a cautious n serious guy who has never been interested in women!
    Preview for ep23: I hope mini uncle really comes to the rescue, n not just to tease us with that hope.

  106. 106 : Anonyms Says:

    wow..thank you all for all the reviews….^^

  107. 107 : KDaddict Says:

    I LOVE JW’s fashion. KHJ makes Everything she wears look gorgeous!
    Why do those 4 ppl rush to the police station? Why not just let him rot there?
    The son-in-law is a classic enabler in the name of filial piety. He should attend some AA meetings.
    Preview to ep 23 shows the result of mini uncle’s testimony, + Editor’s commitment to JW. I’m relieved!

  108. 108 : OK OK OK Says:

    Editor’s character about romance – he is someone who need people to lead him into doing things or talking – and he responded to JW’s request – of course he likes her that is why he is responding……… (he is improving everyday to show his interest towards JW)

    I like episode 22 ending preview — JW is very sad becoz GR is so mad & fierce at her that she chase JW out of the house (I think becoz everybody now knows she steals JW’s diary & ideas)
    JW was on the phone crying & Editor comfort her by saying – “Now your sorrow is not yours alone, but its also mine” :)

    JW’s rich father compare his 2 children, a cow & a dog. He told his wife – how can i let this dog & cow to take over my publishing company?? They are not capable at it. ha ha ha :)

  109. 109 : Anonyms Says:

    It’s great that Little uncle and rich dad always care JungWon^^
    Actually, Song Seung Joon editor and Jung Won awkwardness is very cute^^
    The rich mum seems always on GeumRan’s side no matter what happen..

  110. 110 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ 76 Anonyms

    Do you know that I did write to you after @76 comments but it was deleted.
    Kim Hyun Joo was very sweet and the little girl is so cute & adorable & also thanks for the explanation.

    I am also happy that JW’s rich father & mini uncle is on her side – “protecting her” :)

  111. 111 : Charlie Says:

    I’m gladly to leave the broad, not because I was being called gay here (although I don’t fit any definition of a gay, but am sad to see that even today there are still anti-gay people out there), but the show is getting ridiculous and boring. A man and a woman have to fight to realize that they fell in love. A girl raised in a poor family steals ( What happened to his good gene from his nice father. ). A mom raised a daughter for 29 years, can kick her out one day because the girl is not her fresh blood (You do not even do that to a dog, not to mention a human being.) The rich father showed no interest in his newly found and spend no time with her to make up the lost time. A smart, not so rich if not poor, law school student to be, keep $130,000 between the pages of a book, when there is a gambler at home.
    I’m looking forward for all the exciting new K Dramas to be aired.

  112. 112 : OK OK OK Says:

    When I asked are you a gay does not mean i am anti gay.
    You did not said lead actress is Ugly, but SO UGLY (@56 comments).
    To say someone who is pretty to majority people of both sexes, it makes one suspect a guy name Charlie who said the opposite (why “he” has such an opinion?)

    I read your comments elsewhere sometimes ago.
    You said : Jang Hyuk is so sexy…….. Song Hye Kyo she is not pretty enough to pair with Hyun Bin…. blah blah blah……

    Just to let you know, I am not anti – gay.
    They are also human being. I respect them for who they are.

    I will watch this drama till the end because of Kim Hyun Joo & Kim Suk Hoon because both look pleasant and soothing to my eyes> :) :) :)
    Most of all, they have upright good characters.

  113. 113 : lovejoo Says:

    can someone please tell me where i can watch this drama with eng sub? im stuck in ep 13 :(

  114. 114 : lovejoo Says:

    and please guys do not bother answering Charlie ,s comments. he is gone for good an we dont need ppl like him in here

  115. 115 : Lovemoon Says:

    LOL on the conversation between DB and SSB (considered man to man talks). It cracked me up.
    For what I see what SSB said to JW everytimes after the kissing he just said he will be at her side to support her, and comfort her the way the friendship definition from Inida as JW asked him a while back. It is not necessary he means that “I love you and be there by your side as a lover”. Maybe I am wrong here. I have to wait for a few more ep. to see what my thinking is correct here. Meaning if they start holding hands or more kissesssssss…then I may change my thought otherwise, I still think he tried to play it saved here.

  116. 116 : Lovemoon Says:

    @115 lovejoo
    I know the eng sub stops for a while now at ep 13. Feel free to drop us questions on what ep you want to know their conversation when you watched raw. At least, I will try to give a quick translation from what I understood from chinese sub to crunch your thirst until the eng. sub. coming out.

  117. 117 : Lovemoon Says:

    BTW, I wonder how this actor, Kim Suk Hoon got the lead for this drama. This is the first drama that I watched him and he got the lead role. So I went to this website http://star.koreandrama.org/?p=1119 and found out he was on a lot of drama but I didn’t get a chance to watch so I picked Tomato (SBS, 1999) which I heard was good and also want to know how he looks like when he was young. I can’t find it so I switched to Blissful woman. It is a good one to watch. I am still in ep. 37. Funny that KSH didn’t change that much in look, hair style, acting, habit,…

  118. 118 : Lovemoon Says:

    Ah, can’t believe u didn’t mention about SSJ hugged JW on preview ep 23 but also thank you therefore, I got a big surprise.

    It was an awkwrd hugging from SSJ. It can undertanding how they acted uncomfortable at his apt. but not the hug.

  119. 119 : KDaddict Says:

    I’m glad this thread is becoming lively!
    Lovejoo, I’m glad u r back!
    #117- What do you mean “everytimes after the kissing”. There has only been one time that they kissed, right? When they were playing the Nat King Cole record, no?
    #119- I watched the same actor in Secret Lovers; I think it was filmed abt 5 years ago. He is better looking in Shining, tho I don’t like it that his brows are always knitted. Here, he doesn’t seem like a happy fellow.
    #120- The video that I watch often do not have previews. At times it does, but then is very short.

  120. 120 : KDaddict Says:

    How come the guy with braces hasn’t shown up to court Geum Ran? I’d like to see GR chew his head off, n see him slither his way around her. Like he said b4, they r the same sort of ppl, n deserve each other.
    It is no surprise that Editor will end up with JW.
    But What abt DaBum? He is way too good for GR.

  121. 121 : KDaddict Says:

    Editor’s mother judged Jung Won too harshly. She only saw JW get drunk in her shop once, when JW was obviously depressed. Doesn’t she have any compassion for someone in trouble? JW only drank, paid n walked out unsteadily, never causing her any problem.

  122. 122 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ KDaddict

    that is why 1st impression is very important – especially when you go for job interview.

    Anyway, the previous episode, I did see that SSH did not listen to his mum anymore.
    Remember the scene after JW gave SSH’s mum a few packets of the fish pancake and both SSH & JW are going out of the restaurant, SSH just ignore his mum when his mum “nag” he is gg out with JW. :)

  123. 123 : KDaddict Says:

    Bae Yoo Mi ssi,
    Thank you for a great script. Many Korean actors and actresses are beautiful and competent, but often times, the script is bad and ruins the TV series. Your script for Twinkle Twinkle shows the complex and delicate terrain of the human heart: its desires, selfishness, hungers, love, sense of what is ethical and what isn’t, and most interestingly, its struggles with right and wrong, with rights versus privileges. Through Jung Won, it shows us that it is those of us, who when faced with a difficult situation, choose to do the right thing, to sacrifice our own well-being in consideration for others, that make us good. Those who succumb to basic instincts, of survival, of getting ahead, while all too human, are also all too base.

    It is rare that a KD attempts to address such issues of ethics. Because of your script, this KD transcends mere entertainment. It gives us something worthwhile to ponder too. Thank you for your good work.
    An appreciative viewer

  124. 124 : Lovemoon Says:

    @124 OK OK OK.
    100% agree with you about the first impression. I can’t wait for this upcoming weekend to see how SSJ’s mom has a talk with his son.
    One thing I like about this drama so far is that it didn’t drag out each issue. So far so good. I hope it will continue the same pace.
    @121 KDaddict
    Still only kiss but I mean on my comment is what he said to her (or confronted her) after the kiss.

  125. 125 : Lovemoon Says:

    Do you know how crazy I am about this drama? I found the website that you can watch live at 4:40AM on Sat. (AZ time) for the past 2 weeks. I will watch it again around noon if I found it was uploaded with a HD raw version. Typically wait for sub. is 2 days to come out and watch again.
    At the end of each ep the website that I watch sub. normally have a short preview. Then I went under smilemiexin for another new raw preview for more additional juicy info. Between 2 previews I probably cover enough info. for the next ep. storyline. I wish somebody will help us translate the preview under smilemiexin for us here. That will be wonderful.

  126. 126 : ok ok ok Says:

    @ 119 Lovemoon

    I have watched TOMATO twice. Its a nice drama – starring Kim Suk Hoon & Kim Hee Sun (married in real life already – also a mum)

    I watched 1st time thru VCD many years ago, but some parts missing.
    Then i watched again from internet.

    My sisters & myself like Kim Suk Hoon acting. I didn’t watch Blissful woman becoz I don’t like the female lead. All her dramas I didn’t watch including Family Honor even I like Park Si Hoo very much. I like lively girls but her role is always “quiet type” (don’t know why I just don’t like her face – but my 1 of my sis like)

    I watched KSH acted in Secret Lovers & Into the storm many years back. Not bad. Must repeat in order to recall. Ha Ha

    Below is the link for drama TOMATO – if you understand chinese sub :) :)


    Yes, I also hope that this drama is not so draggy like Smile Dong Hae – which i gave up already after watching about 80 episodes.

  127. 127 : KDaddict Says:

    Getting up at 4:40am to watch it live is real dedication! If it is live, then there r commercials. The show takes hour n half to watch?
    I also like this show a lot.
    Between Gisaeng n Shining, I m happy as a clam.

  128. 128 : KDaddict Says:

    @OK OK OK and Lovemoon, #123, 124:
    !st impressions are definitely impt. But why was that such a bad 1st impression? The poor girl was obviously drowning her sorrows. If Editor’s mom had any compassion, she’d offer some condolence n concern. Instead, she is all condemnation. It is her lack of sympathy that made it a bad 1st impression. That’s why I said she judged JW too harshly.

  129. 129 : KDaddict Says:

    @Ok OK OK-#128:
    Try checking back on that link for TOMATO in a week or two, n see if it is still there. Beware that Korean TV Administrators (I don’t mean of this board) are monitoring.
    Anyone who can read Chinese subs already know that site. Those who don’t aren’t into KDs at all. Mentioning it in an open public forum gives it a good chance of being taken down, to the detriment of all future viewers. That’s just been my experience.

  130. 130 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 23:
    Between Geum Ran and Editor’s mom (perhaps w/rich mom too), they’ll cook up a scheme to marry GR to Editor, won’t they? He’ll resist, but has to work vs the tide.
    GR enters the Publishing House. So there’ll be jealousy, deceit, n misunderstanding. 27 more eps to go. Jung Won has to suffer much b4 before she’ll be accepted by Ed’s mom.

  131. 131 : KDaddict Says:

    Various sources say that Kim HJoo & Song Seung Hun made a drama together in 2008 or 2009 for SBS called The City of God. Yet it is not listed here in koreandrama.org under KHJ, SSH or Drama List. Also, I can’t find it anywhere on the internet. SSH is such a big name; I can’t believe 1 of his dramas would be difficult to find.
    Has anyone actually seen it? Was it made or was the project abandoned? Thank u.

  132. 132 : ok ok ok Says:


    I have not seen the drama City of God by Song Seung Hun but internet said the scriptwriter change for this drama. After that don’t know what happen.
    But I have watched SSH & Kim Hyun Joo acted in movie together. Its call CALLA (1999 production) SSH have crush on Kim Hee Sun & KHJ have crush on SSH. But its a good ending.

    I like the movie and especially the FRENCH song very much.

  133. 133 : KDaddict Says:

    Geum Ran wasn’t such a horrible person when poor. Since finding her rich mom, instead of being happy to be part of a rich, nice family, she wants more n more n more.
    Editor’s mom is a money-lender. She is used to seeing ppl (desperate borrowers) suffer, with no sympathy; that’s why she looked down on JW’s painful drinking bout.
    Editor actor-Kim Suk Hoon has another drama called Blissful woman. He looks more handsome here.
    OK OK OK: Thanks. I won’t have to search for City of God then.

  134. 134 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 23:
    I knew it! Mini uncle went to the office but did not reveal the truth abt JW’s diary.
    Editor held an interview w both girls to find out who stole who’s idea, but it ended w/GR running out. But why did he have to go apologize for hurting her feelings!
    Hi lite- Editor’s confession to JW. GR went hysterical seeing their embrace!
    I hope his mother goes v far in arranging their marriage, n Editor completely rejects her! That’d hurt, wouldn’t it?

  135. 135 : Lovemoon Says:

    A lot of comments that I like to say on just ep 23.
    Wow, GR was so bold and firm even though she knew JW may already have some clues about she stole the diary. Also, she cried and sad leaving the office but when she got invited to SSJ house she looked happy while preparing the meal. Maybe we should give her a bravo award for a con woman.
    Will a good girl ask for a persimission to check out a guy room on the first visit? SSJ ‘s mom didn’t have any bad judgment toward her. I guess it is the 1st impression that we talked about before (If you like somebody from the 1st impression then it seems like you will have a wild card to be tolerance on any bad things you did).
    Do any of you feel sorry for JW/GR‘s youngest sister? I don’t. She asked for it.
    Still have one more ep. w/sub to watch. I am not sure how I feel right now about the relationship between JW/SSJ even thought she confessed first and then ep 23 was his turns. Don’t feel the chemistry. Their expressions were so weird and uncomfortable. Why??? What did the drama try to lead us? LOL, they even kissed first before they confessed. So confusion. Look like we will continue watching JW got jealousy on daytime and SSJ’s turns on evening. Hopefully, it won’t continue being like that for a few weeks.

  136. 136 : Lovemoon Says:

    From the previous few ep we know the business of SSJ’s mom was a “loan sharker” and it is under the black market world. The note on the book that GR read at his room gave us the clue why he didn’t stay with his mom, didn’t want anything to do with her mom business and money and maybe didn’t like his mom as well.
    Did anybody figure it out now why his mom asked him “was your mom the reason you didn’t want to get marriage” from the previous few ep.??? I still didn’t have the answer for it yet.

  137. 137 : Lovemoon Says:

    @129 KDaddict.
    I understand what you said about the commerical but the website that I played live presents a list of all SBS and MBC drama at certain time (Korean time) I convert it to my local time. It had the commerical 5 min. before and after the show. No commerical during the 50 min. of the drama. Maybe the word “live” misleading people. They must be pre-recorded and broadcast out at certain time for PC viewers.

  138. 138 : Lovemoon Says:

    Did anybody figure it out now why his mom asked him “was your mom the reason you didn’t want to get marriage” from the previous few ep.??? I still didn’t have the answer for it yet.
    Even though we know the business of SSJ’s mom was a “loan sharker” and it is under the black market world. Can we consider his background family is from a gangster family? The note on the book that GR read at his room gave us the clue why he didn’t stay with his mom, didn’t want anything to do with her mom business and money and maybe didn’t like his mom as well.

  139. 139 : Lovemoon Says:

    Hmm… I sent the comments but didn’t get updated so I sent again it said delete comments due to dulicapte. Not sure why it is not updated.

  140. 140 : Lovemoon Says:

    Sorry, if the comment got repeat. I tried to send it in a short comment to see it went thru.
    Can we consider SSJ was from a ganster family since his mom was a loan sharker?

  141. 141 : KDaddict Says:

    I posted a comment 18 hours ago, n it is still being moderated! It happens often.
    I know there are sites to watch Korean TV, but haven’t tried it for fear of many commercial breaks. It’s not bad if it’s only b4 n after the show. These sites are perfectly legitimate bcos they do show commercials.
    In her line of work, Editor’s mom has no sympathy for ppl’s suffering. He, in contrast, reacts strongly to it. The more JW suffers, like when she gets close to her real family, the more he’ll care for her.
    It has been awkward between them to emphasize that they are both virgins in love. So despite their age, they are SHY n uncomfortable around the opposite sex. KD is definitely PG8.

  142. 142 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 24:
    End of ep- Editor finds out that Da Bum ssi is a boarder in poor mom’s house. How can he allow JW to go live there too? I think it’ll “kill” him.
    Since GR can’t get to Editor, she figures the way to reach him is thru his mother. Well, I’m glad his ma likes her. I hope a marriage is arranged, only to have Braces ruin it by telling on her with Ed’s mom; or better yet, have Editor not show at the alter. Ha ha ha.

  143. 143 : KDaddict Says:

    See 136.
    Re 140: Your Q re Ed’s lack of interest in marriage was deliberately left unanswered to give some mystery.
    But one can’t be a loan shark without having ways to coerce ppl to repay. Does that make them gangsters? Well, it doesn’t make them regular citizens. I guess it’s a business handed down to her from her father. Such a family wouldn’t be considered good in-laws.
    Editor must have watched his mother’s goons beat on ppl many times when young. So he left to live in a small studio apt, take the bus to observe ppl, doesn’t own a car, n work hard, to distance himself from the horrors of money.
    He has fallen in love w JW partly cos she has been suffering, n partly due to her proper moral choices when faced w/such calamity.

    To OK OK OK:
    Thanks for telling us about the movie Calla which I can’t find it yet. Will keep an eye for that movie. It looks good in preview.
    I didn’t like the ending of Blissful woman which let you thinking whatever you want of that kind of ending so I decided to watch the secret lover (instead of the Tomato) since it was a short one. I like it so far. I remember why I didn’t pick secret lover to watch when it came out since both lead actors were not handsome so I skipped it. Just like Shining I decide to watch it becasue of both female lead actresses (not SSJ) but I am glad I did.

  147. 147 : Lovemoon Says:

    Ah…It makes my day after watching a lot of cute moments between JW/SSJ in ep 24. Love it. Definetely more pleaseeeee… I love JW’s uncle more and more. He was so cute. Only 18 yrs old but fall for 25 yrs old one.

    I have watched ep24 too. I am happy that SSH is not afraid of his mum. He dare to tell his mum not to hurt JW. If Geum Ran have some evil plans to hurt JW in future, hope that she fall into it herself. :)

    *Does anyone know what was the conversation between Rich mom and Poor mom? why the poor mom was so angry?
    *It seems that GR always feel insecure for what she has, she should be happy and control herself and accept as it is, and let JW enjoys what belongs to JW……but this is a drama…sometimes people will also act like this…it makes us realize too….
    *It’s so funny when SSJ editor knocked at the table during dinner due to jealousy^^..so sorry for Deu bum a…..he is cute but JW-SSJ couple is so lovely^^

    GR angry with JW becoz she saw SSH hug JW. GR vent her anger & scolded JW & ask her to leave the house . JW then approach her rich dad saying she wanted to stay with her poor mum (PM). The next morning, the rich dad announce to everybody that JW will inherit his book company.
    Rich mom (RM) approach PM to change JW family status to hers ASAP. Poor mom was surprised & refuse saying why of the sudden. PM ask the RM didn’t you like JW to be your daughter? RM angry & ask PM, you refuse is it you are waiting for your daughter JW inheritance so that you can enjoy part of it? PM feel humiliated & angry that she pour the dried fish onto the RM’s head. :)

    @150 OK OK OK.
    Thanks. Will definitely watch this weekend while waiting for the next ep. coming out.

    Just a thought on the preview of ep 24. SSJ had one on one with poor mom at the restaurant. I hope 1). ask her permission to live there (next to private tutor room). JW will share with her youngest sister room. 2). ask her for marrying JW 3). announce his intention to dating her and stay by her side. I choose #1. It can solve 2 problems (keep an eye on private tutor and protect JW from her mom). It didn’t sound good at all when viewing the next ep preview. SSJ told his mom don’t touch her in an angry voice. Must be something happened in the past that why he said that to his mom. Choose #2 –It seems too soon then it may lead the drama to different path. Choose #3 –too typical. We may have to continue watching the jealousy between JW and SSJ.
    Ah… can’t wait for this weekend.

    After the rich dad announced at the breakfast table he decided to let JW inheritance the company. That made the oldest son hit the roof. So he asked his mom to straight out the birth certification of the 2 girls avoiding the legal complication in the future due to the inheritance. His mom finally decided to go. The poor mom said that at first you wanted to keep both of girls and now you want to straight out their birth certifications. Why you want to keep hitting nails to their hearts. The rich mom kept pushing and continue harsh wording to the poor mom so she will agree to what her request. The rich mom said to the poor mom that since she don’t agree that means she want a piece of the pie in the future from the girls. That why the rich mom got the dry fish all over her face.
    The way it goes. The Han family won’t be a happy family any more after JW moving out. Look like the oldest brother will get kick out of the house. We know mini uncle was always font of JW. Rich dad will always stay at his office. Only mom and GR. Probably no conversation or laughing during breakfast time any more.

    I’m not sure about your choose#1, I still remember how MiRan threw the shoe to JW …..she was so emotional…JW is her real sister though, at least she has to respect her…haven’t seen her with JW after that accident, will they be awkward?
    Btw, SSJ editor will always take care of JW no matter what happen….agree?

    WA!!! this drama really makes me boiling my blooc! every time looking at this thick skin and idiot GR I worry one day i really throw my mouse to my computer!!!

  157. 157 : KDaddict Says:

    When GR turned hysterical at end of ep 24, her expressions make her look like a monster. Hope Editor gets to see those expressions one day soon.
    GR gets more disgusting when she cosy up to Editor’s mom, even helping out at the restaurant. What’s the use of marrying into that house if Editor doesn’t love her? She seems to forget that in a marriage, it is the man who has to hold her in his arms, not the mother-in-law! How stupid can one get?

  160. 160 : Nina Says:

    I’m so in love with this drama. It’s really romantic when SSJ confessed his love to JW under the cherry blossom. He’s cute when he’s jealous but it looks like JW doesn’t care much about his feelings for her. She looks happy when she sees DB and talking bout his baby. I hope it’s going to be a happy ending.

  161. 161 : KDaddict Says:

    Hwang Geum Ran so envies JW being a Twinkle twinkle person that she wants to be like JW. Unfortunately, the only thing that now sparkles on GR are her earrings n the sequins on her clothes. She wants all the things that belong the JW, house, clothes, bags, job title, handsome guy. Why doesn’t she want these things that JW has? Education, kindness, loyalty, hard work, good morals. These are the things that really make JW sparkle.

  162. 162 : KDaddict Says:

    That is so funny! Throwing the mouse to the computer…. hee hee hee. I’v felt the same way more than once.
    You know, if JW decides to give up Editor to GR to repay for having lived GR’s good life for 28 years, I too will throw my mouse at the computer!
    Well, Editor just has to work a lot harder to win JW’s hand in marriage.
    Isn’t it romantic when Editor listens to Nat King Cole’s old song: When I fall in love, it will be forever, or I’ll never fall in love, in this world…….

  163. 163 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ lovemoon

    you like JW’s mini uncle right? Do you know he has an older brother – Micky Yoochun. If you have the time, please watch Sunkyungkwan Scandal — period drama – its abt a poor lady (female lead) has to disguise as a man to study in a male school. Its a nice drama becoz its not a sad show. I bet you will like his older brother acting in lead role. Enjoy… :) :)

  164. 164 : OK OK OK Says:

    @ 162 Nina

    Its not that JW does not care about SSH’s feeling. JW does not know that this man DB which is 2-3yrs younger than her has “special” feeling for her.

    At earlier episode, DB was listening to the “Congratulations” songs which JW sang to him the the phone. She was shocked that its being recorded. She asked DB why n he brushed it off by saying its for his baby to listen instead of himself. She felt relieve after hearing his explanation. :)

  165. 165 : Lovemoon Says:

    Ah… Ep 24 finally presented the choice #3 (per comment 154)-The conversation at the restuarant between SSJ and JW’s mom. He told her that he liked JW and asked her mom continually evaluated him for a little bit longer. Look like he felt that her mom didn’t like him.
    Wow, JW’s mom told JW that she didn’t like SSJ at all (age, character,…) and told her that she thought JW can find a better man than SSJ. Also, she asked whether JW was seriously in love with him yet. I wonder that conversation is her mom truely thinking that way or she tried to discourage JW and hope JW won’t date SSJ especially she knew that GR also liked SSJ (I hope this is not the case). Don’t you hate sister to sister (or best friends) falling for the same guy. It will be a mess.
    Actually, I surprised when SSJ gave a lecture to JW IN FRONT OF HER MOM about leftover and threw away foods when JW decided to play with the baby instead of continuing eating dinner with him. That is hilarious and I didn’t expect that coming.

  166. 166 : Lovemoon Says:

    Oh, sorry I mean Ep 25 on my previous comment.

  167. 167 : Lovemoon Says:

    can somebody clarify what paper (yellow folder) did JW ‘s oldest brother bought to SSJ’s mom for borrowing money? I think it is the company stock (not the house deed) isn’t it?
    It didn’t mention in details, isn’t it?
    I don’t like how it is going when JW’s brother turning bad. It didn’t look good. At the same time I can see how the drama is leading us.

  168. 168 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 25:
    Editor admits to poor mom that he likes JW. She turns around to tell JW not to continue with him. Darn!
    Editor tells his own mother to lay off GR and JW, n that if she touches one hair on JW, she’d lose him, just like she lost his dad. Good for him!
    What else is interesting in this ep?
    1. Editor’s mother finds out that JW & GR were switched at birth, n that GR has abandoned the parents who brought her up, to live in luxury. Who knows? She might actually like GR’s ruthlessness, as she is looking for sb to inherit her loan shark business.
    2. JW, rather GR’s brother, took the ownership papers of the Publishing House to Editor’s mom as collateral, to ask for a big loan. He’ll lose the money as well as the Pub House, won’t he?

  169. 169 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 25:
    Editor admits to poor mom that he likes JW. She turns around n discourages JW from seeing him. I’d like to think that is to protect JW from GR’s competition.

  171. 171 : KDaddict Says:

    I think those must be ownership papers of the Publishing House, if they can be used as collateral for a loan, n the son is the Managing Director. They can’t be stocks unless the company is publicly listed.

  172. 172 : Lovemoon Says:

    I still was not sure about the business of SSJ’mom. What made SSJ so afraid of. It must have a hidden agenda that they didn’t review to us yet besides being a typical underground loan sharker. EP 25 provided us w/ more info. -involved politcian , large lump sum of money under the table involved… illegal(?). Didn’t sound good. Will SSJ tell JW about his mom ‘s business or not?
    Not sure why SSJ didn’t tell GR about his relationship w/ JW. He kept giving GR support. Don’t tell me he didn’t know GR liked him. GR gave him a lot of hints (at least x3) That made me mad. I was so glad she ignored him after got him driving GR home.

  173. 173 : Lovemoon Says:

    @166 OK Ok Ok & Lovemoon

    Thanks for the reviews, guys and I’m going to watch Sunkyungkwan Scandal. This is hard to to remember… It looks like a good drama. I hate it too when the Editor is not telling GR that he has feelings for JW and stop being nice to GR, he gives her the wrong signal or he’s a player (?)

  175. 175 : KDaddict Says:

    Lovemoon #174:
    You’re spot on w/both observations. I wonder too.
    1. It must be more than a loan shark business. The part time ahjumma’s account is scary. Sounds like a money laundering business for secret political funds al la Yoo In Hye’s family in Midas! Editor wants nothing to do w/it for himself or his wife.
    2. Editor has been a severe guy for all that we can see. Yet he is exceptionally agreeable w/GR. It could be sympathy, but it gives GR an opening. Shoot!

    Rich mom will:
    miss JW after she is gone;
    find out how wonderful is her son, born of her own blood, when he loses all the money he got from “pawning/mortgaging”the Publishing House;
    hopefully get to know the real GR.
    Loan Shark mom is a sharp lady. She should be able to differentiate between JW who is genuine, n GR who is not.

  179. 179 : Nina Says:

    For sure that she’ll miss her, JW used to hug her every morning, loves her, cares for her when she was unhappy … but what happened to the rich Dad? Why did he drop her off @ no where in the middle of the night. He got mad because she’s going to move out?

  180. 180 : Nina Says:

    Hooray… there are ep 14 & 15 in Eng sub on MySoju now.

  181. 181 : Lovemoon Says:

    Finally, a big and sweet smile from SSJ in ep 26. Too bad it was being cut short. The evil mom already told JW to stop seeing his son while they were planning to have dinner together. Ah, I am so sad. We love to be able to watch JW and SSJ spending another evening together at his apt., isn’t it?

  182. 182 : Lovemoon Says:

    I like to discuss about the note that each of them wrote inside their book (SSJ and GR)
    I am not sure what SSJ was thinking after reading GR’s note in her book with the title “The old man and the sea”. The same book that GR found in SSJ room. The next day at the company balcony GR pretended thta she had that book and asked SSJ whether he had read that book before and what his thought after reading it. (from previous few ep. back f I remember correctly). SSJ told her what his thought was. Now, what she wrote on her book. I thought SSJ should know that GR was a big lie or at least knwoing that GR liked him, isn’t it?
    Since I just finished ep 26 so I still remember what her note stated but I don’t feel like to go back to search for the ep. that GR read his note on SSJ book in his room.
    Year of 2011, spring.
    Because want to feel his sorrow
    Went to buy this book
    When he cried at that section
    I also cried
    Very happy
    From now on, every time when I wanted to cry
    I probably became the same as him
    Searching for this book

  183. 183 : KDaddict Says:

    GR’s note inside the book mimics the note that Editor wrote inside his. (It opened with the season, year; the horror of money made him cry; he cried over sections of the book; he realized that he read the book whenever he felt like crying.) So there should be no doubt in Editor’s mind that GR had actually seen that note inside his book. But there is no indication in ep 26 that he does. Wonder why! Maybe he will later, n that will be 1 reason for him to despise her?

  184. 184 : OK OK OK Says:

    ep 27
    GR asked her ex-fiance to check on SSH’s mum background, sure one day GR will use it to blackmail her. Then SSH’s mum will know what kind of girl is GR’s character. :)

  185. 185 : OK OK OK Says:

    ep 28
    There is a scene which is so disgusting. GR eat the raw intestine to test the quality to impress SSH’s mum. Don’t she afraid of germs becoz the intestine is raw ?? yaks !!!!

  186. 186 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 27: I am so happy that GR’s ex-fiance is back on the scene. For 1 thing, she has been too unburdened by ppl from her past, which is just too much advantage for her. Plus, those 2 make a perfect pair!
    I’d like it if 1 day He blackmails her, e.g. to tell Editor’s mother abt their dealings, past n present.

    Why do all these ppl have complexion like milk custard? Even Da Bum ssi. The guys have smooth skin that show no sign of having facial hair!

  187. 187 : Lovemoon Says:

    Finally, JW moved out. SSJ had another big smile on his face when he heard JW singing with her co-workers. Too bad GR still thought that plotting all those evil plans will got what she wanted. I wondered the camera at the front entrance got the right angle on GR or not. Can’t wait to find out. One thing I don’t get why JW kept telling GR in her face “stupid” when trained GR. Can JW control her temper? We knew JW was smarter than that and she didn’t like GR but was she an evil girl herself or that was probably her intention to set a trap for GR or the story tried to tell us something in the next few ep.

  188. 188 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 28: Thx to Makeup & Wardrobe, GR now looks more like a hi-class prostitute than anyone who would set foot in a publishing house. She has too much of everything: too much makeup, jewelry, bling, pouty lips, hi hi heels! The thick eye-line makes her look like a slut. Good job.
    Of course she’d eat the raw pig intestines. Mom said it was a test; if she passes, she’d get Editor. GR would eat it even if it was poo, dog, pig or human!
    Looks like the big poster she carries blocks camera angle from fully capturing her maneuver.

    Ep 28. LOL, I cried when the rich dad reading the journal that JW left at his office. It was so sad. I also thought to myself I don’t have any unforgetable moments with my dad (over 80 yrs of age). I need to create some memories only two of us together pretty soon.

    Can’t wait to see how SSJ deal with his evil mom and his evil future wife (look like she passed the test in this ep for willing to try the raw intestine). Hmm…arrange marriage once she passed the test???

    I agreed with you about her heavy makeup. Not sure she should wear those high heel and nice outfit for an assist. job.

    I really really really love each of their outfits (GR and JR). Each outfit always go with a nice and cute jacket. I hope I can find a website selling those Korean designer outfit like in this drama. Anybody knows???

    By moving to Shin Im Dong, JW gains in strength of character, maturity, knowledge of the real world, a chance to make it in the publishing world on her own, and a guy who’ll love her all her life for her moral values.
    By moving to Pyong Chong Dong, GR gains a bigger bedroom w nice furniture, an SUV, expensive clothes n jewelry, but loses a mom of 28 years and a chance to be loved by a worthy guy of moral character.
    Who gets the better deal here?

    @192 Lovemoon

    Micky Yoochun in Ripleys drama – I don’t like the Synopsis becoz it says “Their love for Mi Ri and her tragic ambition eventually leads them down the path of destruction” – does that mean the ending will be sad?

    I like happy comedy romance drama. Normally I will avoid sad or no good ending drama.

    So, did you watch Kim Hyun Joo & Song Seung Hun in CALLA?
    SHINING will end up good – no doubt about that…. yes :)

    GR wears that black outfit with beads around the neck when she puts the flower on Editor’s desk. She looks exactly like a nightclub hostess.

    Can’t believe the evil KYR can do such degradable things to KHJ and get away each time! Just looking forward every episode for her to be discovered and thrown out of the family. She totally doesn’t care about her real father and the business, looking at how she destroys everything just to make KHL look bad.

    The samchoon uncle is adorable and I hope he speaks up one day.

    @ 196 OK OK OK: after watching this week ep. I don’t think Shining will be a happy ending. It may present JW had a positive attitude facing each difficult coming her way but it does not mean JW and SSJ will be together at the end due to what his evil mom did to JW ‘s family later.
    I concerned about the relationship of JW and SSJ even thougth this ep they told each other they won’t let go each other hand but the lyric at the end of both songs (JW/SSJ kissing in ep 29 and when JW/SSJ cried at the end of ep 30) were broken up lyircs.
    Cross my figure that I am wrong. They will let go of each other if the songs are applied to this couple.
    I forgot to mention to you that I watched the movie, Calla after you gave me the site. I like it so much and love both actor and actress as well.

  203. 203 : Lovemoon Says:

    I notice the camera did catch GR dropping something when SSJ reveiwed the tape. If you guys played back the ep 29 you will see what I mean. Too bad SSJ concentrated on her face first and the phone call interrupted him. Hoped he will catch it in detail soon. Not sure why he didn’t save it in memory stick instead of video tapes. If they can xzoom that item that she dropped you can figure out for sure. Cross our figure.
    SSJ will flight for JW being fire by looking for evidence. We already knew that JW told her rich dad she will take all the responsibilty so SSJ won’t get punishment for her mistakes. Hmm…What did GR did??? I think the rich dad tried to test out his kids and SSJ to see who cared for who after found out from his wife that GR liked SSJ.

  204. 204 : Lovemoon Says:

    Both brother & sister from the rich family were under the control of evil SSJ’s mom. Also, she wanted to destroy all of the JW’s love one as well. I ‘m not sure who will go against & destroy her. GR? SSJ? JW? I don’t think one person can do the job. It has to be a team effort. Not sure they wok ogether or not but I can see GR will team up w/ her ex fiance who probaby want to win the case for famous. SSJ will pretend to take over her business so he can get some evidences to go against his mom. I can’t see how JW can help to destroy his mom but she will be the one helps saving the pulishing company. 20 more Ep to go.
    BTW, I keep forgot to ask who can tell me why they add Hwang Tae Ran
    ‘s first lover to the cast. I can’t figure out how he is gong to be involved w/JW family. A helper to Hwang family or just there to keep the drama going. I don’t see he will date JW ‘s youngest sister.

  205. 205 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 30:
    I kept wondering why Editor’s mom minded so much JW getting sadly teary drunk in her restaurant. Now I know! Its bcos she sees too many sad crying women in her business, she despises sadness and weakness.
    Editor is too sorry and ashamed of his family’s business to bring JW into his life. He’ll keep distance fr JW for that reason, n may even pretend to go out w/GR just to discourage JW. That is good. GR will get her hopes up, only to be rejected by him later.
    It’ll be later that the rich parents find our what their son has done, and what kind of betrayal GR is capable of. They kinda deserve it, don’t they? If only they were more fair to JW!
    Editor is the key: He is the only one who can drive a nail into his mother’s heart, n GR’s.

    @204 lovemoon

    I did not hear or take note of the songs lyrics. I will do so when i am free.

    Anyway, “kok chong maseyo” — my guessing, both SSH & JW will end up together becoz i find SSH is a stubborn, strong & upright man. He will overcome his mum objections in the end knowing what his mum’s doing is wrong and marry JW. :) :)

  207. 207 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 31
    SSH suspect GR & set her a trap by putting an empty video tape on the 2nd floor office where he watch video. He tells his office staff that there are CCTV at entrance & he got the tape. GR was scared that she tried to steal it when no body in office at night ……. and Ding Dong……… SSH appears ………. ha ha :)

  208. 208 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 31 & 32:
    are very satisfying. Editor puts GR in her place n opens up to JW abt his family. Seeing how she can roll w/the punches, doing yoga on a pc of cardboard, joking w/her subpar family over breakfast, patting the bb while sleeping on the floor, I feel that we don’t have to worry abt JW n can just relax n enjoy the show. Everything GR resents, JW looks on the bright side, takes a licking n goes on kicking. Brava!
    I’m happy that JR resigns. I believe she’ll go to work for her former Pan Jip Jang nim, who will get maternity leave or go home to care for her bb. JW can then take over that job. That maybe when we’ll see her hugging her name plate, as in the beginning of every show.
    Ding Dong, indeed! Hahaha.

  209. 209 : Lovemoon Says:

    Hooray!!! GR got caught. I should able to celebrate, isn’t it? But guess what after she cried and confessed our SSJ fell for it. I hate seeing SSJ taking care of her and even saving her. It ruined the excitement. It drove me nut when a person is too supppppppper kind. I know if she got to an accident he will blame himself for not caring but what if he got hurt by saving her???…Oh, well. This is Kdrama after all.
    I was happy to find out about the evil mom‘s plan which didn’t lead JW’s poor dad to kill himself or commit suicide. Look like her plan was to lead him to play, create a huge debt, and got the police showing up. If that was the case the poor dad will put in jail. Hope he learned the lesson and be a good dad and quitted gambling after he released. At least JW and SSJ still can be together. Will have a happy ending. That huge debt will lead JW selling her stocks??? Probably not.
    Can’t wait to find out how JW will solve that huge debt and how the evil mom‘s plan to take over JW’s stocks and have total controlling over the company. Who will win??? The evil mom only had JW’s brother and rich mom part of their stocks. Whoever will get JW ‘stock will have the power? Not sure how the rich dad solved the 17B of debt from his son before the deadline.
    This week I think the story tried to give us a small clue of a secret which will probably reveal in the upcoming ep. from the ex. Chief Editor woman. My guess is that the father of her baby will be JW/GR’s brother based on how she looked at him when he rushed out of the building w/o knowing he almost knocked her off and her conversation with JW about her secret of the baby’s father since the beginning of this drama. Remember how JW’s brother used to be a playboy in the earlier ep.
    Can’t wait for next week. This is why I love this drama.

  210. 210 : KDaddict Says:

    I think JW gave her shares of the co. back to rich mom b4 she left their house.
    Editor has always had a lot of sympathy for those who suffer, owing to his mom’s business. He sympathizes with GR just as he does those who come to his mom for help. That’s a crucial part of who he is: An upright person with a good heart.
    Ep 32 may be a watershed for the rich family: things will deteriorate for them at home n at work fr now on. Rich mom intends to repay the 17 B won debt with her own money b4 her husband finds out, but Editor’s mom wants to take possession of the collateral instead. All hell will break loose at home! Plus, won’t they be shocked when they find out what GR has done to the manuscript!

  211. 211 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 32
    Daebum quite “naughty” in this episode. When GR got drunk and sleep in JW’s room, DB said to JW cheekily :
    1 – “if you do not want to sleep with GR, you can come to my room & sleep with me”

    2 – “if not i can go to your room to sleep in between you and GR” ha ha :) :)

    SSH is the opposite – like a rock — boring………………………..

    I wonder how the drama will continue, I find a little bore now – why such a long drama – 50 episodes. Hope it will be interesting for the next 18 ep

  212. 212 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 33:
    Looks like Editor’s mom has a plan to stir things up for JW n GR’s families: buy the restaurant, set up gambler dad, gain ownership of publishing house, n pit JW n GR against each other. I think she wants to see how they’d behave n cope n will accept the winner at the end.
    Rich mom goes to Editor’s mom to give her the shares that JW returned, as interest payment. Surprise! She runs into GR. Editor’s mom looks amused.
    Preview to ep 40 shows that Rich dad finds out abt GR’s sabotage. He feels so bad abt JW resigning over it, n goes to look her up in Shin Im Dong. Really looking fwd.

  213. 213 : yukiyukiku Says:

    thank you for the recaps/spoilers…. ^^

  214. 214 : KDaddict Says:

    It is Preview ep.34:
    that shows Rich dad finding out abt GR’s sabotage.
    I didn’t mean Preview ep.40. Confused w/another series for a moment.

  215. 215 : OK OK OK Says:

    Ep 33

    JW dare to approach SSH’s mum and talk out about things what is best for SSH. Eventually, SSH’s mum will like JW over GR becoz she is daring, have her own mind, not like GR who always do things out of fear of losing SSH, etc………..

  216. 216 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 34:
    They r deliberately playing w/our head. The Preview leads us to believe Rich dad has found out abt GR’s sabotage. It’s just a teaser. I think it’ll happen eventually, but not today.
    Interesting things happen in this ep. I enjoy seeing Editor & JW’s relationship deepen, n JW being a cheerful person in a sea of difficulty.
    Rich Mom n Dad have a fit when they find out Editor’s mom’s business.

  217. 217 : yukiyukiku Says:

    thank you for the spoilers

  218. 218 : KDaddict Says:

    RichMom looks so elegant in suits n jewelry, but is such a terrible person. She takes Everything away fr JW. Now she wants to transfer the shares that JW returned to GR! She invites Editor to dinner, in order to matchmake him w/GR. She mumbles to herself: “JW ah, I shouldn’t be doing these to you”. If you know you shouldn’t, then you shouldn’t! She is no better than the Loan Shark.

  219. 219 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 34:
    I don’t agree w/Editor going so far as to destroy both sets of surveillance tapes to protect GR. He thinks he is also protecting Rich dad fr the hurt, but dad has the right n need to know what kind of person GR is.

    I love JW for thinking outside of the box: She can help Editor’s mom turn the loan shark business into a Venture Capital firm. She’ll invest in businesses that r promising n will do good. That’ll remove the evil, the stigma, n Ed’s bad feelings fr his family. It’ll blow GR out of the water. I bet That’s how it’ll end up. Yeah!!

  220. 220 : kdholic Says:

    Thank you, all, so so soooooooo much for the updates! :)

    I don’t understand korean language, but I still watch the latest episodes without english subtitles. I just try to figure out what’s going on through their actions, facial expression, and background music. hahaha!

  221. 221 : rainbow Says:

    Editor, time to open your mouth!! Why destroy the tapes? Why protect GR or rich father? Why ask her to only apologise? A criminal who gets away, will commit worse crimes in future. Father has the right to know WHO destroyed his company image and profits. Actually if rich dad dont know about GR and give her more shares – that’s it,,, the company will be gone! Already the rich brother and mother have same devious blood and genes. I’m also waiting for samchoon to one day say GR took JW’s diary. Please may that day come soon! See, when he keep the secret, she does the next crime of stealing the film.

    Love the scene of Editor arriving for dinner with JW, and saying they are together. So cool. I was hoping he will reveal truth about the lost films. Wowowow can’t wait for next episode. But why trailer shows rich dad saying JW not to be with Editor? Can’t wait.

  222. 222 : Lovemoon Says:

    16 more ep to go.
    Things need to resolve but taking time. Hope it won’t take all 16 ep. to end the show.
    1. what happen to the poor dad.
    He still enjoyed and played his card for 2 ep. now. Still going strong.
    2. How SSJ & JW got their parents blessing.
    Ton of problems were waiting for them. Nothing went smoothy for them so far. We already knew from Preview Ep 35 the rich dad took back his blessing due to his family background.
    3. Wonder how much more damage will GR create before the end of the drama.
    Hope a few more ep. being a bad girl and after that she will be the one helping to turn things around. I can’t think of anything for her to ruin JW or her family the way it already revealed so far. Anybody???
    Please, surprsie us with new exciting turns to the story soon.

  223. 223 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 35:
    SangWon’s chickens have come home to roost! His pregnant gf comes to tell his mom of his baby! It should be fun when his father finds out, esp. since his gf is the former Editor of their pub house!
    Don’t understand why anyone would be concerned abt gambler dad. Just divorce him n disown him w a newspaper ad.

  224. 224 : Anonyms Says:

    Thanks a lot….really like to visit here to read all comments with all reviews…..haha still catching up with subs….this drama is daebak!!!

  225. 225 : Hanif Says:

    OMG ! So many spoiler in this thread! But it’s okay, Now I know that not just me who think this drama is excellent ! I only got eps 28 so far, since I don’t have courague to take any episode in this drama without good english sub !

  226. 226 : KDaddict Says:

    In Ep 35 Samchun overheard Rich mom & son talking abt the debt fr mortgaging pub house & its stocks. He should 1 day tell his brother.
    Ep 36:
    Rich dad walks in on SangW’s crying gf. He decrees that SangW marry her! V pregnant gf moves in. Oh, SangW is real upset!
    JW rents a basement office to start her business.
    Rich dad overheard Editor & GR talking abt her not taking responsibility for her destroying the manuscript. He has a heart attack! Can he take more bad news abt the pub house? What’ll happen next? That actor is now playing Michy Yoochun’s father in Miss Ripley. Can he be in 2 shows at once? Or is he going to die in Shining? Rich family will be in a holy mess if he dies. All of Rich mom’s greed, SangW’s greed & GR’s greed will go up in smoke.

  227. 227 : Nina Says:


    Thanks for telling us what’s going on, on ep 35, but what did the rich dad say to the editor & JW? Is it about the relationship b/t SJ & JW’? And did the rich mom ask JW to give up SJ for GR. The rich mom is evil now. 28 years relationship seems like nothing for her… This drama is getting more & more interested

  228. 228 : Lovemoon Says:

    Ep 35: Watching raw (didn’t understand what they said) I thought to myself oh, it is a typical ep. but after watching the ch sub. Wow, total diff. ep. Getting interesting. It was a must to understand the conversation to like it. I still have to wait for Monday night to watch the ep. 36 sub. to know more what it is going on. This drama intended to close out a few issues for each week. That is one of reason that I like about this drama.
    Let the war began…
    The evil mom (editor mom) was so mad when she saw her son and JW together at the garden. That was when she declared the game began. Also, the evil mom was so angry when she found out from GR that her son was rejected by the rich dad due to her business. She claimed that only she can say no or rejected people. She was the “White Bear”. She told GR about her total plan on 1). how to make JW suffering even though that will cause her son suffered as well 2). She will do whatever it took to keep the stocks. She said that was the only way to make JW miserable 3). She asked her to choose either her rich dad or stayed by her side. If she picked her rich dad side she will end up being destroyed and with nothing left. She will pick another daughter-in-law. If she picked staying by her side she will sit in her position.
    Round 1: JW won even though her dad was in jail. (stay tune for ep. 36 for more info.)
    The Evil mom was mad like hell. Why??? Not sure yet. I think 1). she didn’t expect that JW will call the cop (beat her first) 2). She may lost her money.

  229. 229 : KDaddict Says:

    I typed a comment soon after 288 2 days ago, n it has disappeared! I thought it was being moderated, as they often are, but it still isn’t here. So I m typing it again:
    In Ep 35, Editor puts JW in a basement office to work on a new unit of the pub firm, it is the internet bookshop that SangW started but didn’t follow thru on. This is Editor’s way of luring JW back to work. I’d prefer that she starts her own business.
    Editor’s mom asks GR to choose between her father n Editor. If she chooses her father, she’ll be destroyed along w him; if she chooses Editor, i.e. stay mum while her father is being destroyed, she’ll inherit the loan shark business. Given what a shark GR is, that should be an easy choice for her.
    I wish there is a consistency to the way our comments are moderated. Why do some reappear after 18-20 hours, n some just disappear altogether?

  230. 230 : joyce Says:

    the evil mom got mad when she heard JW call police before her action, because she lost her bargain power. The Evil mom was planning to scare
    JW that she can ruin her father or family like that. But JW did it herself
    and show her courage and use the strong way to correct her father’s bad habit (JW said to her fater, Please fogive what i did but i will do it again if
    the same case happened).
    JW is a innocent , simple and cheerful girl from outside. but, inside she is
    very smart, strong and insist girl.

  231. 231 : PILln Says:

    Really love this drama the best so far.

  232. 232 : Lovemoon Says:

    Round 1: JW won even though her dad was in jail. (stay tune for ep. 36 for more info.)
    Watching with sub Ep 36: I found out the evil mom was mad like hell becasue her orig. plan was to setup and had both poor dad and JW together in jail thru the specific district cop(s) that paid off by the evil mom. Since JW made that call a different disctrict cops so up. I didn’t think of such an evil plan. It got more exciting especially on these two ep. after watching w/ sub.

  233. 233 : Nina Says:

    Can’t wait until Sat & Sun for new ep. and any one know if there are any new ep with Eng sub?

    thanks! enjoy this family drama very much.
    waiting for the baddies to have a taste of their own medicine!

    the wicked sister & the editor’s Mum are such a pair! makes this drama super exciting.

  236. 236 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 37:
    It’s getting to the parts that I like: Payback time!
    Rich Dad passed out due to stress, but no harm done. He now knows abt GR’s act, is cold towards her, n “suggests” that she return to Shin Im Dong.
    Evil mom pressures JW to choose between Editor n seeing her father destroyed. She is abt to choose her father. In the nick of time, Editor arrives to tell his mom off. Looks good all around. To top it all off, he proposes! Haha. Enjoy!
    But the preview shows GR driving her car towards the loving couple. Who will get hurt? Editor? That should piss off his evil mom to no ends. May White Bear’s wrath descend upon GR in full force. Yes!
    And May this comment appear n soon.

  237. 237 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 37:
    On other sites, lots of ppl complain abt JW’s behavior since GR came home. They say that she is too good, unreal, hypocritical. I’ve no problem w her choices until this ep, when she is willing to trade Editor for her gambler dad. I don’t believe that is a fair trade. The 2 men are not of the same calibre. One is immensely upright n worthwhile, the other is a burden to everyone, not to mention one loves her, the other only loves gambling.
    Rich dad wants to observe GR. He is giving her a chance to make right what she sabotaged, n to make right relations with the poor folks who raised her. I wished for him to return her to Shin Im Dong! Little does he know how readily she abandoned them to achieve her goal and will soon take part in Evil mom’s scheme to destroy her rich parents. All becos she wants to crush JW!

  238. 238 : Kdholic Says:

    I can’t wait for karma to get back at GR and evil loan shark mom!

  239. 239 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 38:
    I super love this ep. I super love the Pregnant woman. Ha. She is giving SangW n rich mom a run for their $$! She is going to drive them absolutely nuts!
    I super love it when Editor told JW that he wishes they could change places, as that’s the only way she’ll know how much he loves her! Isn’t that the sweetest declaration of love?
    I love that GR is showing her colors, in all its glory, no holds barred.
    I love the look in Evil mom’s eye as she has dinner t the lovebirds! I think she’ll soon realize which girl is better for her son. I think she’ll come to love n protect JR more than anyone b4 the show is over.
    I love the ending too. NICE!

  240. 240 : KDaddict Says:

    I feel sorry for Rich dad. He’s such a nice guy; he doesn’t deserve children such as these. Too bad, they take after their mother. JW is not his flesh n blood, but JW is really his descendent in spirit, in morals, in the way she lives her life.
    In the Preview, it looks like things will explode for GR in her household. She even dares to yell at her Rich dad! Wow, really look fwd to it!
    1 of best shows right now: Greatest Love, City Hunter & this! Han bok ge!

  241. 241 : Nina Says:

    Greatest love is good? I’ve been trying to watch it a few times but the actor & actress, the script are not that good and City Hunter, I like Lee Min Ho but too much fighting. I like this drama, Lies to me the most & Romance town is OK. Any other good drama, anyone?

    GR make up – getting more n more scary. When she just moved into rich dad’s hse, she had a nice perm, soft & curly. Nice make up & she look quite sweet with her dressing.
    Now she behave & looks like a devil. Her dressing to a more rugged style. Her hair is diff now. More to a sharp curve & red purple color?? Her eye makeup – thick, black & fierce. Her fingernails are all GREEN – “evil” colour.

    I am also puzzle – of all the colour – JW paint green colour wall for her new office. Quite scary if you are alone in the night working…. he he he :)
    I would prefer beige colour. :) 😉

  249. 249 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 39:
    Wow, this show is now heading towards its climax. Totally!
    OH, I didn’t see this coming….GR has the guts to fight w her rich dad, n move out of the rich house! When he suggests that she should go to Shin Im Dong to help the poor mom who is going blind. She refused of course, being the selfish bitch that she is. Guess where she is moving to? Editor’s mom’s house. She wants Evil mom’s job n $$ so bad. But of all the rooms in that big house, she goes n sleep, where else? In His room! Yuck.
    When rich dad reveals over dinner that poor mom is going blind, gambler dad is the only one who is surprised. Is this the impetus that he needs to turn over a new leaf? What can he do to seek gainful employment? Teach ppl how to gamble? 😉
    There is more, but I don’t know anymore, cos I was drinking, just wine. ….that’s going to my head now. ZZzzz

  250. 250 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 39: comment #2:
    Rich mom is mad at her husband for GR leaving. She picks a fight n threatens a divorce, with half of their assets! When Rich dad says, “Yes, let’s do that”, she is so shocked she quiets down. You know, in other KDs, the little wify is v respectful of the husband. Rich dad has just been too nice to her. Instead of appreciating it, she takes advantage! Why do I hate her more than GR? Cos I think GR is deranged!

    GR is at Evil mom’s house w/out anyone knowing. Rich mom frets over it, n asks for JW’s help. JW figures out where GR is. Both girls end up there. Guess who shows up? Evil mom has invited Rich Dad to drop by! Show down…..

  251. 251 : rainbow Says:

    GR = GockRoach. Her eyes look like the 2 insects. Good makeup to suit her character. She even sleeps with them on, instead of washing them off.

    There are many such evil people like that who have no conscience but only live for money. It’s better to have a close neighbour than a distant brother/sister – ever heard of this saying? There are rich families who are dysfunctional going to court fighting over inheritance. Such that the dying head of the family will rather donate everything to charity, like rich dad now. In many cases, once they hear a family has illness, they will also disappear and abandon their parents. The world shows that accumulation of wealth and status is top priority and don’t let anything stop them. It’s only the very strong ones that will not succumb to worldly standards of degradation!

    So guess the rich dad knows he will be abandoned, or already being abandoned by his children and wife the moment they lay their hands on the business and the money. In fact they already took the shares and collaterals and abandoned him already as we speak. The worst traitors ever are his kids.

    However I hope rich dad will change his mind later and give everything to JW who really has the heart, commitment, skills, talents and concern for the family business. She has sacrificed herself for so many people.

  252. 252 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 40:
    Rich dropped 2 bombs in ep 39: he asked GR to return to Shin Im Dong, n he announced that he will donate his riches to charity. To counter this, his wife threatened to divorce him.
    Ep 40 is a set up for what will happen next. Rich dad now knows that Evil mom chooses GR for her d-in-law n successor, n he sees GR’s real self at Evil mom’s house. Samchum tells him n JW what SangW did w the shares n the bldg. In disgust, Rich dad asks his wife to present the divorce doc for him to sign. He must have had enough of her. And she isn’t at all repent yet! 2 significant developments:
    1. JW knows that Evil mom is setting traps for her. In order to defend her beloved Pub house, she makes up her mind to set a trap for old lady instead.
    2. Samchun’s mom is the variable in this game becos she holds a lot of shares. Whoever gets her shares wins. Evil mom has lured her back to Korea using Samchun’s pics. She is young n gorgeous.
    Ricky is real cute, n this is his 1st drama. I’m so impressed that he knows how to quiver his lower lip in anguish. Do they learn this in acting school?

  253. 253 : rainbow Says:

    In ep 39, I was wondering why Editor’s evil mom spying on Samchun.

  254. 254 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 41:
    I super super love Samchun’s mother! Wow, what a beauty!
    Samchun is 18; she looks like she is abt 36-38. A good 20 years younger than her d-in-law, GR’s mother, n several years younger than SangW’s pregnant wife, her grand-d-in-law, and a good deal more beautiful than both! Hahaha!
    I love her for being that rare renegade female bohemian who dares to speak her mind n do whatever she pleases in KDland!
    I also love her for being interested in Kwong Sui, the loyal bodyguard! Oh, I look fwd to seeing her seduce poor Kwong Sui, who doesn’t have a prayer against her! Hehehe.
    I love the women on this show, except Rich Mom.

    When Carmen marries Kwong Sui, that would make him JW’s step grandpa! Heeheehee! ;););)

  256. 256 : Lorem Says:

    I watched up to episode 24 and had to let this go. The very early episodes showed promise, but as it progressed the writers dropped the ball and unmercifully thrashed the premise. What’s with these guys, didn’t they learn anything from David Milch?

    Ah… the adorable Kim Hyun Joo is the reason I began watching this. So there!

  257. 257 : KDaddict Says:

    We are at ep 42. I love it that they introduce Two new elements this late in the game. That’s quite a feat in writing!
    1 is Samchun’s mother. Her presence will determine the outcome of the power struggle between the forces of good and evil. Not to mention a new love or lust affair involving Kwong Sui. He is not a major char. but he is always there, so u want to see him come alive fr being a statue.
    2nd is the intruder in the dead of night. That throws a monkey wrench into the story. He is obviously there to harm (kill or kidnap) Evil mom. She is not there, but GR is. What will happen next?

    Apart from these, it is satisfying to see Rich Mom break down n cry tears of deep regret, over her precious children’s behavior. She finally sees them and JW for what they are.

  258. 258 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 42:
    In total darkness, the intruder can’t see who it is, but he would assume that the woman in Evil mom’s room is Evil mom herself. He could hurt GR mistakenly. That should stop GR in her tracks. Rich mom is too hurt and shocked to want to nurse her back to health. GR would return to Shin Im Dong, where Poor mom always loves her unconditionally. She will then stay there by her blind mother’s side.
    JW will enlist Samchun Ohma’s help to fight Evil mom and win back the Publishing House. This time around Rich Mom and SangW will both agree with Rich dad that JW is the rightful heir of the Pub House. She will go on to run the business successfully with Editor Song after marriage.

  259. 259 : oh Says:


  260. 260 : KDaddict Says:

    After GR got hurt by the intruder, would she still be keen to take over Evil mom’s position? If she could recover?
    JW knows how Editor’s father died becos he told her. Does GR know how the old man died? If she does, would she still want that job?

  261. 261 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 43-44:
    Evil mom is one scary woman. I find it unbelievable that she’d go to such extremes in a struggle w her only son. Even if she gets want she wants, GR instead of JW as a d-in-law, wouldn’t she mind losing her son’s love in the process? Whatever is left of it? Doesn’t she mind making her son miserable for the rest of his life? This woman needs some serious counselling!
    GR is already in ICU in a major Seoul hosp. Can the doc have her wheeled back into OT to remove her uterus, which hasn’t been punctured in the attack, just becos he takes a bribe to do so? I think their Hosp Authority should sue the writer n network for defamation! Unless they show that in the end, the doc actually doesn’t go that route. I can believe it happening in some other countries, which shall remain unnamed.
    No wonder Editor Sung calls his mother a strange monster!

  264. 264 : KDaddict Says:

    In most KDs, the main female char is depicted as being Sweet, kind, loving, caring, hard-working, long-suffering, but in need of a man to rescue them.
    I love Strong female characters, whether they come in the form of JW, smart n educated, or Samchun’s mother, outrageously sexy and daring. Girls like these are rare in KD-land. I am so happy that this show gives us 2 such strong females with smarts and backbone, who can stand up for themselves n those they love!

    Where can I watch epi 37 onwards of this drama with eng subs? Can anyone please advise?

  268. 268 : KDaddict Says:

    Dear Administrators,

    The actress who plays Han Seo Woo’s mother is gorgeous and feisty. I haven’t seen her at all in any of the 90-100 K-dramas I watched. Her name isn’t included on the cast list above. Is there any way you could include her in the credits? I’d love to know about her, but can’t find anything on the internet. Much obliged for your assistance.

  269. 269 : admin Says:

    Hi KDaddict, we will check for this. Thanks for inform us.

  270. 270 : dramalover Says:

    Samchum’s mom is Choi Soo Rin. Watch her been a witch in My Precious Child

  271. 271 : KDaddict Says:

    Thank you. I skipped My Precious Child cos it has so many episodes.
    When u say she played a witch, do you mean a real witch, or an evil woman like a witch? I love fantasy shows, n there aren’t many of them. I’d love it if there is a real witch in it. Thanks again.

  272. 272 : KDaddict Says:

    House #457:
    I’ve seen Editor’s mother’s big house before. It was in When It is Night, starring Kim Sun Ah n Lee Dong Gun, also an MBC production. It appeared in ep.2 when the cops came out of some big shot’s, a senator’s, house. That was the gate of House 457.

  273. 273 : dramalover Says:

    Samchun’s mom in My Precious Child is a very mean woman who left her own childen to go with the new boyfriend and she does a lot of evil things.

  274. 274 : jangerr Says:

    @ KDaddict & dramalover

    Hi KD! Thanks to your recommendation, I’m following this drama avidly. I’m currently at episode 43, which means I’ve been watching 3 to 4 episodes per day…

    Unfortunately, I can’t find a site that has the english subs from episode 36 onwards. So I’m watching it without any subs now. Do you know of any site that I can watch with either english or chinese subs?

    BTW, I think the actress playing samchun’s mum may be Myung Se Bin, at least she looks like her. Myung Se Bin acted as the queen in Goong S. She’s certainly gorgeous but her acting hasn’t leave much impression with me until her role in this show.

  278. 278 : Lovemoon Says:

    Hello, everybody. I am back. I got the news from Dramabeans that this drama will ext. to 4 more ep. So exciting. That why he got a chance to cry due to JW and chief editor officially broke up. It was really sad. He was so mean to her. I really want to punch him even thought I know what his intension was. Actually, he gave her a hint to use the contract that was hidden in the albumn cover. So this is my prediction on how it will go.
    JW will find the orig. contract that means the evil mom of chief eiditor will go to jail but since he will take over his mom business he will take the charge and go to jail instead of his mom. He gave up JW so he can accomplish 1). save the rich family for bankruptcy, 2).to take responsibility for GR (even though it is a liar from his mom), and 3). save his mom. I believe after that everybody (the rich family parents, GR, and his mom) will realize why he did what he did. They all love him and help JW and him back together. The End.

  279. 279 : Lovemoon Says:

    BTW, waht do you think about the couple Sang Won (JW ‘s brother-32 years old) and the his gf (Pregnant right now –42 yrs old)?
    Funny things is that SW didn’t get his gf pregnant thru one night stand. They went on for couple of times per their conversation (forgot what ep). He is ok having sex w/ a lady 10 yrs older than him but when she showed up he jumped up and down disgusting everthing about her.

  280. 280 : ShineOn Says:

    Hi 278 Lovemoon ,
    You are so good in predicting the story . Ya the Chief purposely hurt JW
    so that she will “hate” her and do whatever necessary .I really love thise drama , the writing is really superb and the OTP, so are other cast .

  281. 281 : KDaddict Says:

    From the preview I knew that Ep 45, 46 would be full of suffering for our couple. Surely ep. 47, 48, as well. With the 4ep extension, the resolution for their problems will come that much later, around ep 53. Seeing Editor become a nobel self-sacrificing idiot n take responsibility for GR will be v upsetting. Rather than seething for weeks while waiting for the proper outcome, I’d rather wait till it is over to watch the last stretch together. It shortens the amt of time one has to be upset! 😉

  282. 282 : jangerr Says:

    @281 KDaddict

    Hmmm…. Think I’ll do the same as I don’t want to be waiting in anger and frustration… And also since there are no eng subs for the later episodes yet…

  283. 283 : ShineOn Says:

    Hi KDaddict , I think the same, that I want to wait till Eps 54 then only watch at one stretch. But I do not think I can resist ,sigh! and I definitely hope the plot will be out of expectation, not the chief taking the noble idiot pill and we do not have to wait till Eps 53 to come to resolution.

  284. 284 : Lovemoon Says:

    I will really mad if the story end w/o their wedding.(the wish of the poor mom), isn’t it???

  285. 285 : KDaddict Says:

    Evil mom wanted doc to take out GR’s womb. Now I don’t think if he did. Even if he did, with all her $$, I’m sure she can buy GR a husband. Kwan Sui is just standing around doing nothing. Perhaps the 3 of them can live happily ever after. What Evil mom wants is GR as her successor, which is exactly what GR wants. Make that appt n they’d both be in heaven, no?
    The rest of them can group together to fight off the hostile take-over. JW n Editor can go ahead w that wedding. Then Lovemoon (n the rest of us) won’t have to be mad! 😉

    Yeah Wellie…Kim Suk Hoon looks handsome especially when he is smiling…he..he.. Can’t wait to see live for the Episode 48. The story is getting more and more interesting before it ends …hopefully the happy ending one for the lovely couple.

  292. 292 : KDaddict Says:

    I got curious n checked in to see if Ep 48 was safe to watch. Hey, it isn’t frustrating at all!
    Ep 48:
    GR seems to be getting enough of Evil mom, n finally comprehends what Editor wrote in his book, Old man n the Sea years ago.
    Kwan Sui has run away n brought all his goon bros w/him. Oh, I love Kwan Sui. Pity, some foxy woman hasn’t taken him away. Hee hee.
    I love Samchun’s mother: she is so sexy, so fine–my favorite type of female appearance. Mother n son are reconciled.
    From here on, I think the drama is headed for resolution, not more conflict. Hooray!
    @jangerr, hi:
    A belated welcome on board. Your message #282 had not appeared last time I was here. Being moderated perhaps. Boy, u r fast. 40+ eps in a v short time! Bad for the eyes! I had perfect eyesight 2 years ago, after lasik. No more! :(

  293. 293 : jangerr Says:

    Was just checking up on the lead actor, Kim Suk Hoon’s profile cos’ he looks vaguely familiar to me but I can’t seem to recall him in any dramas or movies that I’ve watched.

    From his profile, I realised I’ve watched one of his dramas, Tomato, a few years ago. The title of the drama may seem rather innocuous but I really enjoyed the drama. It has a simple storyline but was beautifully and sensitively acted by Kim Suk Hoon. I remember thinking to myself, “Ah! This is one good actor but how come there doesn’t seem to be any other dramas by him.” By the way, it’s a very old drama and I’m not sure if it’s available in any site at all. Playing his love interest in the show is one of the great beauties of Korea, Kim Hee Sun.

    I’m so glad to discover this new drama by him (thanks to KDaddict) and I get to enjoy his acting once again…

  294. 294 : KDaddict Says:

    I back tracked from ep 48 to watch ep 47.
    Ep 47:
    was good too. Editor actually knows that GR’s not being able to bear children is a lie! He just knows his mom wouldn’t be that eager to accept a d-in-law who can’t bear children. Then GR knows from his doctor, who tells her that he was bribed to lie abt it. Rich mom knows by overhearing GR’s conversation w Evil mom, and she tells JW. Therefore everyone who needs to know, knows.
    My comment #285 was being moderated all day yesterday. Pls see message to u in it.
    Also, since u like Kim Suk Hoon, have u seen Blissful Woman (2007)? It is a melodrama w him n Yoon Jung Hee, a girl who reminds me a bit of Choi Ji Woo. He is v good in it too.

  295. 295 : OK OK OK Says:

    I already watched till ep 44. A little disappointed that this drama extended another 4 episodes because for 50 episodes drama an hour per episode is consider very long for me. :(

    Just like Dong Yi. I chase till ep 49 thinking it will end at ep 50 and I will complete my mission. When the news came out that the drama extend to ep 60, I m tire. My sis finish the whole drama, told me the last 10 episodes not very interesting.

    I finished the whole drama for Queen Seon Duk even they extended the drama from ep 50 to 62 because I find it very nice and exciting. :)

  296. 296 : KDaddict Says:

    Mostly extensions are a pain. They drag out the plot to a snail’s pace n make maddening additions.
    I rarely watch anything longer than 24 eps. Stars r paid per ep. They can’t afford A-list stars for too many eps. So long dramas Normally have lesser stars, lesser production budgets. It’s rare to find a 50 ep dramas i.e. good. This one is. Its 4 ep extension is unfortunate.

  297. 297 : jangerr Says:

    @ KDaddict

    Hehehe! I know, I know, you’re right, I’ve been naughty… That’s another reason why I’m taking a break from watching this drama. I’ve been watching too much. It’s true, my eyes need a break. Like you, I’ve just ‘lasiked’ my eyes a few years ago too so must keep them in pristine condition. So I’m forcing myself to take breaks…

  298. 298 : OK OK OK Says:

    @296 KDaddict

    I applaud your stamina. (Park Sho) You still continue to give your supporters the summary of the latest episodes. :)

    Hope I will finish this whole drama and not giving up like Dong Yi :)

  299. 299 : KDaddict Says:

    @OK OK OK & jangerr:
    How to finish this n not give up? Well, I skipped eps. 45, 46 n miss nothing. That’s a way to get back at them for the extension. If I find 2 more eps to skip, then I come out even, at 50 eps. Ha ha ha. 😉
    I rather like doing ep summaries, if I feel attached to a drama. Then there r dramas that I like, e.g. City Hunter, that I don’t feel the compulsion to update.
    For the sake of my Eyes:
    I am trying to limit myself to 2 eps a day, 7 days a week. That’s 7 dramas at a time. hee hee hee. Can u believe that Still I don’t succeed?

  300. 300 : ShineOn Says:

    anyone has Eps 49 preview to share hahha

  301. 301 : Dina Says:

    Well, here it is…Preview of Episode 49


  302. 302 : Orlando Says:

    LIE TO ME!

  303. 303 : ShineOn Says:

    Thanks a lot Dina

  304. 304 : KDaddict Says:

    I think GR is pretty now that the heavy make-up is washed off. Even while I hated GR, I think Lee Yoo Ri has done a super job as GR.
    Kim Hyun Joo is really funny when she sings off key, way off key! :)
    Ep 49 & 50 feel long-winded n dragged out. I only skimmed thru them. It is good to see the 2 girls acting like sisters now. Evil mom has a goon tail JW to get back the original loan agreement, which shows her guilty of fraud. More trouble next week, then the big payoff the week after.
    @Dina: Thanks for the Previews.

  305. 305 : Nina Says:


    I’m 100% agree with you that GR look a lot better with the light make up. They’re lucky that they have nice skin, they don’t need a lot of make up. I don’t really know if GR change back to be a nice girl. She stole her brother’s contract that the Editor gave it to JW… This is the first drama that I watch with KSH, he acts good for his character, he looks more attractive in this drama.

  306. 306 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 50:
    Thru so many eps, JW has been smart. But here, she seems more fool-hardy, to keep a contract i.e. enough evidence to put Evil mom in prison on her person or in her room. Don’t they have safety deposit boxes in S Korea?
    If u watch ep 50, u already know what will happen. I m mad at the Preview 51 for destroying ALL suspense abt the end. A preview is supposed to whet our appetite, Not reveal everything we need to know abt the ending.
    @Nina: Good to c u again. Lee Yoo Ri’s skin is taunt, luminous, translucent, everything that women around the world wish their skin could be, if they dare. She is v popular in S Korea having impt commercials on TV.
    If u like KSH, he has a drama, Blissful Woman, in which he plays a cop in love w a married woman betrayed by her husband. He steals the show.

  307. 307 : jangerr Says:

    @305 Nina

    Another KSH’s show you should watch is ‘Tomato’. It may be a bit difficult to find as it’s quite an old show. KDaddict mentioned that he stole the show in Blissful Woman. In ‘Tomato’, he more than stole the show, he stole my heart too…

  308. 308 : Nina Says:


    Thanks! I did watched these eps when I went on vacation but didn’t have time to read these comments…I hope it’s going to be a happy ending… Still waiting for Eng sub… I watched a little bit of Blissfull Woman but it’s not my favorite.


    “Tomato”, another good drama with KSH? I’m watching “The Princess’s Man”, I never miss any dramas with Park Si Hoo.

  309. 309 : KDaddict Says:

    I adore Park Shi Hoo too! And love Princess’ Man. See u on that thread.

  310. 310 : Dina Says:

    @ Nina & Jangerr

    Yeah..I agree with U all… KSH looks more handsome in this drama…he and KHJ really make this drama lively and not boring to watch everytime they’act together. How I wish they will be a real life couple ,,, I wonder why most of the Korean actors/actress married late.

  311. 311 : Lovemoon Says:

    I like the rich dad ‘s character. He admitted that he judged KSH wrong. He told his wife that he will let the pregnant lady having the chief editor position after giving birth. He will create a new title and assigned to KSH. Approved KSH and JW relationship (in sync with the poor parents from the poor family who were very supportive and went along with whatever JW’s decision) He hate to let him go and gave him to somebody else (funny to know his thought from ep. 1 until now didn’t change). Hmm…What the rich mom planned to do. She plotted for her revenge by asking GR to make sure stole the contract back from JW while she stayed at the poor family home so she can put the evil mom to jail. She still won’t accept the chief editor since she hated his mom. Does her action reflect as a mom duty or she had a bad personality here? Sorry to say, I don’t like her and I was glad bad things happened to her family. At least she learned the lesson but not 100%. I think I was going along with JW’s decision to not let KSH’s mom going to jail. If she did there were no way she can get back with him even though they were really in love.
    As typical, this drama won’t drag out too long. We already JW didn’t die (Hoooooray!!!) and was saved by somebody (TBD–I think it is the bodyguard of the evil mom or the KSH himself).

  312. 312 : KDaddict Says:

    Dear Administrator,
    When you get a chance, could you please add the name of the actress who plays Han Seo Woo’s mother to the list of credits above and to the Actress list? Many thanks.

  313. 313 : Wasi Says:

    Thanks you guys and keep on waiting.

  314. 314 : Lorem Says:

    Halfway into episode 42 I couldn’t stand the music any longer. I’m bitching about it and may or may not endure the rest of the episode(s).

    A most fundamental rule; never have the music assert while someone is speaking. It is like two people talking at the same time. Those piano bits played over the dialog were not in empathy, they were telling an unrelated story, making the whole thing cheap and sucky.

    Someone please banish the culprit to another planet.

    The feeling from these KDramas is great. I like the shows, but the production often ruin it.


  315. 315 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 51:
    JW is rescued by Kwan Sui, whom Editor sent. KS runs into GR near her poor parents house, n GR helps him find the same hole in the ground that the goons threw her into earlier.
    The biggest thing in this ep is GR’s coming around, to see the error of her ways. She hurries to the hillside to rescue n apologize to JW. Then she gives the 2 copies of Sang Won’s contracts to Rich mom, to prosecute Evil mom. Then she goes to Evil mom to return the hugh ring, becos she wants to be a good mother herself, n not put her children in danger n pain, like Editor has been suffering.
    JW saves Evil mom from being prosecuted for her kidnapping, n spends a night sleeping next to the lonely old lady. Unfortunately, next morning, the cops come to arrest old lady for the fraud she committed against SW n their publishing house.
    SW’s older wife gives birth to a baby boy.
    In Preview 52, Evil mom’s cash n books go up in flames.

  316. 316 : KDaddict Says:

    Rich mom is still unlikeable; I guess becos she only ever cares abt having her own way. None of her decisions has ever considered anyone beside her, not JW, not her husband. Editor is still being the nobel idiot. JW is as strong n bubbly as ever. GR is very pleasant now that she is reformed. The gambling dad has also grown into a better person, by becoming part of the family. SangW is being forced to be a house husband.
    I still like Da Baum ssi, n Mini Uncle. They r both so cute. And Da Baum’s baby too.
    Tae Ran wails like a banshi when she finds out her mom is going blind.
    There is so much to like in this show, which will end next week. The payoff will be seeing Editor n his mother heartily embrace JW. Maybe GR can go back to school n date Kwan Sui. 😉

  317. 317 : KDaddict Says:

    Ep 52:
    is not a happy ep. Rich mom will sue Evil mom, whose cash all goes up in smoke. Editor will resign n leave, creating much agony. I think I can do without it! Better wait to watch the resolution episodes next week! 😉

  318. 318 : Wasi Says:

    Many thanks to KDaddict, I enjoyed reading your comments. I will be watching again from ep 1.

  319. 319 : KDaddict Says:

    Thank you taking the trouble to acknowledge my ep updates. I appreciate it, n am glad u like them. This is a good show, n just like you, I’ll revisit it for sure. BTW, if u r itching for sth new, Princess Man is also very good. Its lead actor, Park Shi Hoo is dreamy. Happy viewing!

    I have to repeat a few times to understand the poem JW made. What a beautiful poem about loving each other as one. I am really going to miss this great couple..

  322. 322 : Lovemoon Says:

    To ShineOn @321
    While I were watching the raw ep 52 I wondered myself what JW recorded and said that changed his mind (show up at her house on the preview 53). Finally, I got a change to watch chinese sub. I like the poem a lot too. She knows him well. Can’t wait to see how he has to do for her to take him back. Better be a good one.

  323. 323 : ShineOn Says:

    Lovemoon @322

    what I love about this drama is not the makjung part, but the strong relationship between the main couple.Their relatioship is one that will go a long way cos what they have is not just chemistry love, but also base on trust , understanding,sacrificing, knowing what what each want and respect for each other as a human being and professionally.

    Cant wait to watch the last two episodes , ya it better be a good good pay off ..

  324. 324 : Lovemoon Says:

    Hooray!!! my wish will come true. It will have a wedding for the main couple on the last ep. tomorrow. Love it. Too bad the poor mom is already blind and JW is the one go after him.

  325. 325 : ShineOn Says:


    can share more of eps 53, I will not be able to see for sometime .

  326. 326 : Dina Says:

    Just watched the ending of the drama live (the shooting just 40 min )…I can’t help but to express a bit disappointment with the ending…not nearly as exciting as I expected. Apart from the meeting at the beach and wedding, the rest were so and so. I was hoping they would focus more on the couple…less dialogue between them. They also should do something with HJW’s hair during the wedding..it doesn’t suit her for the big event….SSJ looks awesome… .

  327. 327 : KDaddict Says:

    I loved eps 1-48 of this show. What should have been a 2-ep. ending got dragged out to 6! Instead of going out w a bang, it goes out w a whimper. How can it not be disappointing?
    What person on earth would put thousands of billions of won in paper cartons n put them in a non-secure, non-fire-proff warehouse w WINDOWS?
    Poor mom has only ever cooked smorgasbord food for poor hungry students. When have smorgasbord items been cookbook worthy?
    All of a sudden, GR is linked w another young worthy editor/publisher.
    I’m afraid it’s all too easy. The writer has taken the easy way out.
    I still haven’t watched the last few eps, n I don’t I must. What’s up next week?

  328. 328 : ShineOn Says:

    Ya , it would be better without the extension.but I still love this drama because of the main couple.The other long drama I love is Life is beautiful, another great story on love.Now Hooray for love is quite entertaining.

  329. 329 : KDaddict Says:

    Oh, JW’s hair was awful for the wedding. Dina is right abt that. I loved this show, but still feel that the end is a let down.
    Life is Beautiful, abt the family that runs a small hotel on Jeju Island? I like that a lot too. It was daring of them to include a gay couple in a KD. The way they showed that they kissed was so funny. Nam Gyu Ri looked more beautiful in it than in 49 days.
    Bye bye gals! Happy viewing!

    Finally got to watch the sub. on ep 53 which is a good ep. Really enjoy it. A lot of emotional moments betwen JW and the Chief editor mom; between JW and GR;…

    Anybody cares to tell me why the chief editor didn’t show up when his mom released from prison. Did he tell his mom that they will stay together and he will be a good son if she paid her debt?

  333. 333 : esigh Says:

    Lovemoon, KAddict, Dina, and Wasi, where did you watch the final sub episodes of this drama? So far, I’ve only been able to watch up to ep 44. I’m already going trough withdrawal symptoms, cuz I couldn’t watch anymore. Where can I find English subbed apisodes after ep44? Pls. help!!!

  334. 334 : Dina Says:

    Esigh..so far I’ve yet found Eng Sub for Episode 45-54. I’m also confuse with what Lovemoon said. Maybe it was chinese sub that she watched. If you want to understand the storyline for episodes 45 – 54 you can browse to to his link http://www.darksmurfsub.com/forum/index.php?/topic/527-sparkling-twinkle-twinkle-2011/…at least something. I’m afraid we have to be patience for the rest of the episodes…I realise that it takes quite a longer time for them to produce the Eng Sub.

  335. 335 : Wasi Says:

    My dear Dina, try this website,http://www.epdrama.com/twinkle-twinkle/twinkle-twinkle-episode-46/5/

  336. 336 : Dina Says:

    Yeah …as for Twinkle-Twinkle in epdrama..I just realised it yesterday that the Eng Sub is now up to Epioode 48. Thanks anyway..happy watching then.

  337. 337 : Wasi Says:

    @333 enjoy ok.

  338. 338 : ShineOn Says:

    Just wonder someone can enligten me..I cannot understand why the Chief left again after listening to the poem? and why he left for a year without looking for JW? I know he initially he felt he is not qualify and is for JW good that they break up. I cannot understand that if JW did not go to him, is he going to live in the village forever , by himself?
    And Yes I am so disappointed with so little screen time between the main
    after such a long drag in the lst episode.

    I am still at eposode 12 and I can’t seem to stop. This is by far the best drama I’ve watched this year. I like KHW and watched all her dramas, but Lee Yo Ri is such a good actress to igonore. I’ve watched her once only in Daring Women, even if its such a long drama of over 100 episodes, I stayed with it to the end because she is so good. I like her expressive eyes, pretty and natural face. KHW seemed to have face alterations everytime I see her in a drama.
    Congratulations to all the people who are behind this drama. Thank you.

  340. 340 : CHILL Says:

    I am waiting for the English subs on eps 53 and 54 please…help.

  341. 341 : HoneyD Says:

    Can anyone pls tell me where i can find eng sub for ep 53-54 i can’t seem to find it anywhere……helpppppp

  342. 342 : Hanif Says:

    We have to wait eng sub 53-54 from withs2 (Google it). So far, only with sub from them I can watch this drama properly. They keep the quality of dialogue/ script with their sub’s released. Oh man, 2 days ago I continue this drama from eps 36 and I wasn’t able to stop watching it until last night (I reached eps 46)

  343. 343 : Demmr Says:

    Hi you guys, twinkle twinkle is on till the end enjoy!

  344. 344 : Tama Says:

    Loved this drama.

  345. 345 : delilah Says:

    Hi,Im a k-drama lover from Malaysia. This show is simply awesome! initially I was fighting with my self whether to buy the dvd or not. I’m glad i did. I’ve never watched a k-drama with over 30 episodes except for historical drama, but decided to give it a shot after reading some of the comments in here.

    Theres no boring moment here, and i just love the chemistry between the leads. I love KHJ acting and i hope I can have a daughter that have the same attitude as the one she portrays here. Yes,she is kind, lively, cheerful, pure hearted, smart , loving, pretty and so on, but she is also human when she didn’t want to lose to others and want to become a little bit selfish by not wanting to give up what she has,which is so different from other dramas which show the female lead weaknesses by simply letting themselves being bullied and willing to sacrifies everything which sometimes to me I think a bit unrealistic.

    KSH also did a good job here. I ve watched him before in SECRET and INTO THE STORM but i saluted him for his role in this drama.

    I would recommend this drama to those out there. Happy watching.

  346. 346 : KDFan Says:

    My only comment (after watching 8 episodes) is that the characters for JW and SJ are too old esp SJ. He can be a parent to teenage child already , and not suited to be the hero. The script should call for a younger age group as the main characters (at least 5 years younger)’
    Anyway both can act very well. Their acting are good actually, it just i am a bit disappointed because the main characters looks old.
    Love the story line though…

  347. 347 : Mic Says:

    Didnt’ watch this drama ’til now. Jumping to the end and then back and forth. I know this sounds silly, but for some reason, I think it has the best proposal scene in all the kdramas I’ve watched! Hahaha! Nice drama!

  348. 348 : kat Says:

    This is the best Korean drama that I have watched, and I still couldn’t get over with it. I love the acting skills of all the characters especially KHJ, LYR and KSH. They really gave their best shot in acting. They were really fit to portray the characters in that drama, and I don’t think there can be anyone who can surpass the way KHJ portray the role of JW. Now my only wish is that KHJ, LYR, KSH, KDH and the rest of the Twinkle Twinkle team will win award/s in the MBC Drama Awards. Fingers crossed always! Twinkle Twinkle, hwaiting! KHJ, hwaiting! Other Twinkle Twinkle memebers, hwaiting! :)))

  349. 349 : mizi Says:

  350. 350 : l3na Says:

    Very touching, good kdrama

  351. 351 : Wonderful Loser Says:

    I can’t watch the last episodes yet. Basically can anyone summarize the ending and post it here?…Thank you..

  352. 352 : taraLuvJJ Says:

    i like kang dong ho,,,,

  355. 355 : comment Says:

    this is being aired currently here. not yet finish. so far, i pity and symphatize with hwang geum ran. and i dont like the father character, both fathers – han ji woong, geum ran’s biological father and adopted father, especially han ji woong (jang yong). he clearly rejects geum ran altho he knows she is his own daughter and clearly shows his preference and loyalty to jung won instead, and i wonder what kind of father actually he is. yet, when seo woo’s mother wanted to take her son back, he is described as chose seo woo over his company, to me that is kind of “inconsistent” and altho what geum ran’s did are not something to be condoned yet i dislike what han ji woong did many times more, his is unsavory character. somehow i dont really like the characters of Jang Yong, e.g. i didnt like his character in Miss Ripley as well and i dont remember the others but i dont have a positive image of him as a result of the characters that he played.
    i wonder about Kim Sang Ho, as an actor does he keep his hair that way as a requirement from his agency or directors..?? he is not really someone easy on the eyes and yet he keeps his hairdo or hair style that way – to emphasize his look – being not easy on the eyes..?? and i wonder too about his character as son in low who supports the gambling behavior of his father in law, kind of unsavory too.
    to me, this series – on a scale of 1 – 10 – only scores 7.

  356. 356 : vivian Says:

    I agree that geum rans real dad was really very unfair and his behavior led her to do many wrongs just to seek his love.

  357. 357 : CH Says:

    Seung Joon is like a block of wood….no reason for the two girls to fight over him.

  358. 358 : sangjhoon Says:

    i started watching this although it’s a few yrs old & i am hooked! never thought it wld be this addictive for me! i don’t like geum ran she’s a material girl n have high hopes to the extend that she’ll go the extra length to do bad things to jung won, i dunno but still early to judge or misjudge her as i’m just on epis 17 right now but i’m not liking her character already! jung won is much nicer & i hope she ends up with the editor in chief kim suk hoon who i like since his drama tomato!

  359. 359 : sangjhoon Says:

    To dear Admin: Pls kindly post this nice photo – many thnx


  360. 360 : sangjhoon Says:

    @CH i disagree, he may not wear his soft/kind heart on his sleeves but he’s not a block of wood as you indicated here but i’m not saying you can’t express your opinion but my opinion just differs from you with song’s character! he’s a decent man, very transparent when it comes to righteousness even with the way he objects to his mother’s type of business, etc. He’s got those humorous side/s of him in this drama if you recall when he was bathing da beum’s baby singing 3 bears :) LOL i thought woah that’s one of his funny sides plus the way he jokes sometimes with jung won, etc. i think in fairness he seems very strict & as you said like a block of wood i wld say one of the reasons would be the tragic event in his father’s life….so i can u/stand his stance on how he suppress his ways in life but he’s 101% a good man & i would say it’s worth fighting for him like the two ladies are going with it! :)

  361. 361 : sangjhoon Says:

    i just finished this drama & really enjoyed every min of it! Kim suk hoon & kim hyun joo had a great chemistry! too addictive! i give this a 5 star rating, the leads are excellent in their roles matter of fact even the other casts were so good! i highly recommend this! to me this is a classic!

  362. 362 : hibiscus Says:

    the script of this drama is awesome! this will be one of my most fave kdramas of all time! i luvd Kim sook hoon & Kim hyung joo, they’re best couple for me! luv it n am rewatching it for 2nd time! a friend of mine had seen this 7/8 times by now! :)) i won’t be surprised, this kind of story & it’s almost perfect is gonna linger on after watching this.

    I highly recommend this! 2 thumbs up wayyyyyyy up
