    If you are a fans with the leading characters of course you like them to be togethere. But I’m their fans too I don’t like what they did to be honest and starting to hate this drama. Very dissapointed for both of them, for you guys who like their characters let see what are you going to say If it’s happen to you. I don’t believe I’m watching it and better stop now before I become disgusted to the writer. I love happy ending too but for my favorite actress not this kind of happy ending I wish for.

    Sam Says:

    People should really stop watching this drama if it hurts their moral sensibilities. Great literary works past and present like to deal with subjects on moral decay/decadence not that they want to encourage it, but on the contrary they would like to show man in the face of conflict, adversity, challenges etc. to yield universal truths of our humanity.
    Some of us will learn from it, some will allow it to open their minds to better understand human behavior, and of course some would simply love or just hate it for the pleasure of it — i am a classic example of the latter– i just want to be entertained…etc.

    Like many people who watch this show, I am just an observer. Where the writer will take this story, is certainly his business.

    rairamegumi Says:

    from the first,it was HJ who didnt trust her husband and failed to save her marriage
    so,the drama gets more interesting
    if HJ trusted her husband,the drama will end in ep.2

  9. 409
    Sandy 2 Says:

    Rairamegumi @ 408, it’s not about HJ trusting her husband, it’s about SH not respecting his wife enough to know how she may be hurt by his actions. When he agreed to SY’s proposal, he thought it meant that he would have to sleep with her. HE ACCEPTED THE PROPOSAL UNDER THAT BELIEF. It was at that moment, that SH caused the failure in his marriage.

    Do a little research, and you will find that the #1 root cause/reason for a divorce is a lack of communication. The person who did not communicate was SH. Since SY is a smart woman, I’m sure she calculated her odds and wondered if their marriage would last if the wife thought her husband was sleeping with another woman for 3 days and this husband would not communicate with his wife at all during this time. SY did it on purpose and SH went alone with it.

    What is really sad is the number of people who are blaming the wife, when the problem is clearly SH and SY. When Kwon Sang Woo (SH) said that his character is “a bad guy” and that he “had a hard time portraying his character”, then even the actor is acknowledging that SH is wrong and he doesn’t agree with his actions. So when I find people blaming the wife, it makes me laugh and sad because in order to justify that SH and SY “love” they have to find fault with the wife.

    For me, SH is the most unlikable character next to SY. The fact that they are anger with MW for telling others about SY breaking up a married couple is hilarious. MW is not lying on them, it was the truth. Just as SY told MW’s wife about Roy, MW told her father about the $1M she paid for a married man.

    I stopped watching this drama because it disgusted me. I had no preconceived ideas about the lead actors when I begin watching this drama and I think that’s why I don’t by into the hypocrisy of it. This turned out to be a waste of my time. I only hope in the end, that the wife who has been tortured, abused, stepped on comes out on top and let the rest of them (SH, SY, JS, MW) wallow in their immorality.

    plain Says:

    @Sandy 2,sorry to say this ,you are not judging from what happen before HJ husband ACCEPTED THE INDECENT PROPOSAL,you just cute it from the middle,did SH just saw SY and proposal was made he accept it?who made her husband to go indecent ?just as HJ first marriage fail that is how the second one will fail too, this time they will reserve one room for her in psych ward.

    Who in their right mind will divorce a man claiming the husband cheated on her then marry other whom she clearly know that he is a cheater who will do that if that person is not mentally disturb or unstable, people like HJ need help,because they want to control everything around them,her controlling SH for so long has made her selfish to have a poor judgment about others,she will never see herself as the problem,this is why SH fall out of love for her. she is always doing things without thinking about the consequence of her actions.
    A wise person does not make mistake twice,they learn from the previous one and correct it,HJ even though you don’t love a man that does not mean you cannot try to make it work,MW throw away his wife for you yet you did not left up a finger to see where this marriage takes you to already wanting a divorce what a shame.Also HJ did not read what she signed for her mother in law,all her thinking is her ex who had moved on,what if that pre-nup said she will not divorce MW until so so years,and many other things that may be on it?.
    even in the party she did not dress her hair,she look like a crazy person, she is looking at other man in front of her husband noticing her behavior,this is very good for MW who started taking a revenge for a crazy woman who is mentally disturb,without knowing the full story.HJ think her marriage is a toy game where she can throw it away the way she like.Wait she will learn this time that rich are not toys.

    if you enjoy the drama,watch it
    if you cant enjoy it,just leave it
    dont take it too seriously…
    I root SY and SH coz I like them
    and remember that this is only drama to entertain us
    if there are the goods,take it
    if there are the bads,just leave it

    Sam Says:

    let’s review episode 1:

    HJ was so hopeless, that she agreed to the suggestion of her husband’s dead business partner to go spend the $3,000, when SH says, let’s keep it for emergencies (remember they were way past their heads broke!)
    We have to agree that SH’s suggestion was reasonable considering their circumstances. But what did the wife assert? She says NO. LET’S GO SPEND IT . So they went shopping, ate in fancy restaurants etc. This is perhaps in her mind, to give SH a great memorable time with her because she’s going to kill herself next.
    Why would she want to kill herself??? To save her FATHER’S HOUSE! (source: insurance money)
    Everything is just about her!!!
    Poor SH. What would he do to spare his beautiful wife from desperation that is of course all his doing?
    As they say, desperate situations, require desperate solutions.
    Note that..
    SY’s perception of SH from years back is that of a humanist-an upright person(the reason he was not hired, remember). With a disposable 1M in her hands, she toyed with the idea of testing SH in the face of what she learned about the couple’s dire circumstances. I’m sure she was not 100% certain SH will take her up on her offer. But since he did, might as well use him. She is a business woman for goodness sake!

    The writer provided enough events to justify SH’s desperate action.

  13. 413
    Sam Says:

    What I wrote was a mess. My point is that HJ and SH actions were driven by their difficult circumstances. SY toyed on their situation and later on fell in love with SH. Bizarre actually. Complicated things are happening right now because some people stopped loving, and started hating instead.

    @Sam thank you,if only others can see the truth,and stop blaming the poor man who has done no wrong to his wife,but enjoy the drama as this talented writer is giving us a good message about those wife’s who can never see their fault in destroying their marriage but blame other for their misfortune in life.If one think HJ is a good example of how wife should honor her husband then follow HJ examples of life which I think will lead to nothing but despair and sadness in life.

    rroxan Says:

    happy ending please

  18. 418
    Sandy 2 Says:

    Plain @ 410 I will just ask you to think about one thing, has SH every stated to anyone who accused him of cheating on his wife, deny it? He has not and did not. Taking another woman on a date and going out of town with this woman was a form of cheating. Telling this woman that you like her while still married, is a form of cheating. He himself confirmed for HJ that he couldn’t stop thinking about SY since he left Hong Kong–that she had found a place in his heart. Accepting the proposal with the intentions of sleeping with another woman for $1M is a form of cheating–the bond at that point was broken. There are several forms of cheating. Most people only associate it with sexual when actually it’s the emotional cheating that does the most damage.

    It is extremely obvious that you have never been on the receiving end of having someone cheat on you. It is EMOTIONALLY AND MENTALLY taxing on a person because your heart is broken and you no longer know who to believe or trust. It doesn’t help that your husband stands you up for an appointment and he’s with the other woman when he should have been with you. Yet, HJ is supposed believe that nothing happened between SH and SY when he’s now acting different (snapping at her because he’s afraid she would see the text from SY) and then this woman in front of her husband flirt with him openly.

    This woman was willing to give her life to help her husband get out of the mess he was in, but she finds out that she really didn’t mean much to him. In 3 days he’s with another woman.

    However, I don’t care how this drama ends, probably SY and SH together. SY will always, always feel insecure with SH because she knows he can be bought for the right price and under the right circumstances. She will also never really trust him when he says “I love you”, because he claimed and appeared to show that many times with HJ in the first episode or two. But that switched in less that couple of weeks. More than that, she will always think he’s with her for the money–that’s what she keeps thinking now.

    Then the fact she wants revenge on someone for something she did that was shameful, is ludicrous. SY and MW are just alike–they are equals. MW gave her father some information and the news of knowing his daughter would do such a thing caused him to have a heart attack. SY did the same thing in the very beginning to a man and it caused him to have a heart attack. HJ save that man’s life–SY should have been grateful. SY also to MW’s wife about Roy. She is just like MW. While MW cheats with women, SY toys with men’s wives. That’s why JS thought something was going on with SY and MW in the past.

    I hate that the writer is not depicting HJ as a doormat. Most women would have slapped SY silly and told their husbands off. MW wouldn’t have had to slip the truth to the media, as the wife I would have done it first to give both of them a little payback. Would have gone through my grieving period and moved on with my life.

    Besides there being no moral conscience in this drama, the number one thing I hate is the writer blaming the wife and making her a doormat for everyone to step on and treat with disrespect; even her disloyal brother. The only likable character in this drama is Roy.

  19. 419
    Sandy 2 Says:

    One last point before I drop this thread, is this drama showed the audience what was really happening between SY and SH, a behind the scene that HJ doesn’t have. I keep hearing trust, trust, trust. You just don’t give trust. Trust is something that is earned. HJ doesn’t know what happened for those 3 days, but she does know her husband has changed–he’s thinking about another woman.

    The writer has done a disservice all women of have had a boyfriend or spouse cheat on them. He’s painted them as pathetic creatures when most women who have gone through that ordeal actually used it as a stepping stone to do greater things.

  20. 420
    Gee Says:

    HJ never said to anyone the reason why SH accepted the 1M offer, or their circumstances before the offer. I do not say that SH did the right thing, but she should have told her brother and even her father, too, how their financial problem was fixed. At least hear both side of the story from HJ and SH since they are family and not just letting people think that she was cheated by her husband upon the whim of a rich woman. I enjoy watching this drama and I’m very tempted to copy SY fashion style!

    jupiter Says:

    FYI: $andy 2 The psycho ex wife was not the who saved Mr. Jong its —– Cha Seok Hoon. Can you please watched it again on ep 1. All the characters have flaws. Stop defending HJ .

  22. 422
    plain Says:

    @Sandy 2,I guess you are watching a different drama,how incontinence for you list everything SH has done wrong,why HJ in your eyes is a victim of SY and SH love affairs,let me tell you,pray that a man tell you the truth about his feelings or himself than he lied to you that he loves you why he is playing you for a fool just as MW is playing HJ for a fool now.This is why I love how this writer portray SH character,beautiful, instead of SH denial that he has no feelings for other woman,why he is lying which is a betrayer,but he let the truth out to his wife, what does that shows?it shows that he care for her and love her,if a man is lying to you when you find out it might be too devastating and heartache for you save yourself or pick up anything you might left behind honesty and truth might be difficult for some people to hear or take but it save life and not destroyed it.
    SH telling his wife the truth was the best way to deal with things and any good woman will use the opportunity to draw her husband closer not to push him away further into other woman hand,by the way after watch EP 14,hearing MW talk about zero to SY shows he is totally in love with SY and SY knows it right very well what he want is her.
    The photographer is not on HJ side as a family friend he is still working on behalf of MW,so HJ is been used as a piece of trash in this marriage fiasco with MW, there is nobody MW wants rather than SY.HJ has no idea what is coming for her,why MW marry HJ is to make SH jealous so that he will come for HJ and SY will see that SH does not love her but her money, why he is wrong on his thinking not knowing what really happen between SH and SY money transaction and plan A is not working out well my guess he will go for plain B which I think will be very interesting to watch why he will do anything to get SY if my guess is right.

    Nagnag Says:

    SY & SH are the two main leads in this drama. So the script writer would not likely to let them portray bad characters in the plot. It’s a drama, not a film show & we are talking about two very popular Korean actress & actor here.

    Therefore , thru this drama , the writer does have some profound advice for married couples or anyone in a relationship . One of which is ; NEVER let your anger get the better of you ,even though you are the one being wronged.

    HJ is a naive as well as a bad-tempered person. She always let her anger get the better of her , which resulted in bad judgements & decisions by refusing to trust her husband when he made mistakes & forgive him when he seeked to reconcile ( though it seems that she still loves him ) . And eventually again, the anger in her, leads her to take revenge at all cost by marrying the playboy MW for that purpose .

    In EP 1, she told her husband that she might just hate him if ever her father’s house were being repossessed by the bank. And then, to avoid that, in HongKong, she tried to commit sucide thinking that she would be able to claim the insurance to help pay the bank ( no insurance company will compensate for suicide.) It was naive of her not to know that & also, not to trust her husband to solve the problem together.

  24. 424
    NagNag Says:

    Another advice is that to make a relationship work after a betrayal or any serious problem , you will have to build that trust again in your loved one. Love without trust cannot make a relationship last .

    SY is rich and arrogant but she is definitely not malicious . Apart from trying to help SH with his financial trouble or her own business agenda , her ‘offer ‘ to SH was simply an act of arrogance, to test the his marriage ( like the sand castle other kids build which she finds it a futile effort ) . She wasn’t trying to make him fall for her by that ‘offer ‘ . However , she started to like him when they were dining together on the night of the 2nd day of work in HongKong . You can tell from the way SY looked at SH when SH was relaxed and smiling…

    Rose Says:

    When HJ meet SJ at party restroom and being so rude, SY asked her that despite her hate should be well-mannered with someone who saved her life, HJ gave SJ this answer : “If I had died and gone to hell/ I wouldn’t have had to go through this living hell. / You will soon fall into that hell soon. “(ep.11)
    I wonder, what kind of living hell is her life that is less bearable than hell after death by suicide? I guess it’s the hell from her dirty mind, her own creation. All SJ’s doings, words and behavior are subordinate to her compulsory bad thinking about others. She pointed SH about wearing an expensive watch, but she wore an outfit that a man – MW gave her, maybe more expensive. She thinks about SH as male prostitute for money, but she is a woman who married MW in return for power and protection that she needs to destroy SY and SH lives, but that isn’t a sort of prostitution, is loveless matrimonial sex, sorry for confusion.
    In the end isn’t about who cheated first or who cheated on who. It’s about not cheat oneself, to be faithful to yourself and I believed SH is that kind of man. He was grateful to SY that she offered that huge sum of money without the need to cheat himself in return for it, on the contrary in those days she helped him to restore his self-esteem and professional confidence and gratitude opened his heart, that’s why he spent with her some time after their arranging expired. I think SH was aware of the living hell (legal/ social/ family) whereby SY saved him, giving him a chance. Also being faithful to himself, he tried to come together with HJ, but she wanted to divorce no matter what. After that SH did what he felt in his heart to be right and SJ did what she thought in her mind to be right.

    @Sandy 2

    I’m sorry if I touch your nerve by saying this, but didn’t you view each of these characters too critically one sided? I think your judgement is being clouded by your own personal experience-you tell us before about it-
    HJ have to experienced cheating spouse( is SH really cheat her? I cannot see this actually. He accept the terms during the 4 days and NHJ knows this. Her husband is desperate beyond salvation. He is not in his correct mind. Shouldn’t she as a wife at the very least go and make a scene at SY hotel room?) like you.
    So, what you can see is only on HJ side. In your mind, a preconception have been created. All man who fall in love with other woman aside of his own wife is a cheater like in your situation. The wife is innocent. Why? Because, people who has experience this will remain stubborn that nothing happen was their fault because the one who’s cheating is the spouse. So, they do not realized that they are the one who push things that initiate their spouse action. This is what i learn when watching this drama. Of course not every couple who break up is like that. They have their own situation. But in this drama this is what i see.
    People who just judge things from their own situation cannot see this and will repeat their own mistakes.

    I’m not saying that SH and SY is correct in their action. SY pour oil into a household that is already on fire. She’s also selfishly confessing to a married man and hired him, although she know that this will damage the marriage further. She’s no angel and she’s selfish in her own ways.
    SH is the same. Did he really want to prove that he didn’t like SY and that’s why he go and be hired by that women. NO! It’s bullshit. What can I see really is that he’s trying to test himself. Testing his feeling towards SY. And when SY decide to confess, he retreat because he scared. He scared of his own feeling and also he still has the last ounce of respect towards HJ. He is not a man who did things half-heartedly. he didn’t want to fail his marriage and choose to patch things up with his wife. He decide to forget SY altogether. This is his determination. However the time did not coincide with HJ situation.
    HJ really lost faith towards his husband. Her husband stood her up and go to other woman. He agreed to that ridiculous 4 day contract and he even help that woman patch up things in the company. And Hong Joo really a stubborn woman in her own ways. She’s just see others fault and always trying to blame other. This is her fault. She give advice to KMW but why she didn’t comply her own advice. Her mind and actions is being blinded by her emotions. So, she asked for divorced. but she didn’t completely want to divorce. She actually want her husband to woo and beg her to patch things up between them. But this did not happen and she went crazy.
    SH on the other hand didn’t realized this and went having new relationship with other woman barely 2 months of their divorced. See…he’s a selfish man too.
    Nobody is an angel in this drama. They acts accordingly to what they believe. But the most troubling character that I can see is NHJ. She cannot let things go and find her own happiness. She’s not only destroying other people life, but she’s destroying her own life too. She put her life into KMW’s hand. That’s like digging oneself into one self own grave.
    The writer didn’t really make her character like a doormat. No, she isn’t. She’s filled with bitterness and she’s using herself to get what she want. And I see that you saw this as well. That’s why for you the only likeable character here is Roy, right?

    So, I won’t say who’s right and who’s wrong here. But I’m a selfish woman in my own ways. I like to be entertain and right at this moment it would make me happy if SY and SH will be together gain. Does this hurt my moral sensibility? No…because I respect myself enough to act and feel as my own believe if did this will ever happen to me which i believe and pray will not( I mean the whole 4 day situation, not about the cheating spouse)

    Anything that tempts you, attracts you and makes you want it , even though it may be wrong or harmful is considered a TEMPTATION . It can be anything , any kind or just a feeling for something , & it’s every where in life.

    3rd advice which the script writer wants to tell us is that one should NOT blame the many temptations to which he or she is being exposed. It’s your own choice & decision to allow yourself be succumbed to it . HJ kept blaming SY for her marriage problems & not realizing that she needed to take responsibility for her own problems by being understanding & by having effective communication with SH.

    SH succumbed to the temptation put forth by SY due to his plight . Can’t really fault him when he was being thrown into such a distressing financial problem which also involved his father-in-law’s house being used as collateral for bank loan. The pressure was even greater for him when his wife HJ stressed that the house was her father’s whole life of hard work & that she might hate him if the house was being repossessed .

    SH was angry initially at SY for extending the ‘Offer’ which was seemed as indecent. But in EP 2, after he completed the contract & got paid for it, he was very much relaxed with SY during dinner & was beginning to find her a nice person. You can tell by his friendly mannerism when SY praised him for his hard work & he responded by praising & obliging her in return.

    NagNag Says:

    Advice 4 – Most if not all, men like to be admired besides the basic respect. It’s the ego thing . They are attracted to people who look up to them especially during difficult times. So treat your man with gentleness even when you get hurt, if you want to keep the relationship.

    It was not surprising that SH was attracted to SY eventually when he realized that the ‘offer ‘was not indecent and that SY showed admiration & trust in his work capability, when SY praised & appreciated him for his work performance by suggesting they ordered wine to celebrate during dinner in EP 2.

    This admiration , which happened to come from SY, is particularly important to SH as it came at the time when he needed it most , right after his failed business. Thus, it boosted his confidence & self-worth as a person tremendously . No wonder SH finds it hard to ignore SY or not to help her when the need arises. ( which made him stand HJ up on the medical appointment )

    NagNag Says:

    This drama is really not a straight-forward drama whereby the third party gets involved in a married couple & break up their marriage . Otherwise the script writer would have got the male & female leads to portray the roles of married couple whose marriage is on the rock and the wife is the victim etc. It would be too ordinary and usual , a story line.

    Also , we are talking about the two all time Hallyu Stars , Choi Ji Woo & Kwon Sang Woo, the ‘ Temptation ‘ & the Tempted , here in this drama to change the stigma and the common perception by telling a different story .

    It was definitely due to arrogance and not fond emotion that SY offered the contract as temptation to SH , although she became the ‘ Temptation ‘ to SH eventually . She was not trying to make SH fall for her with that offer. That was why she dared to mention about the story of sand castles , although she regretted her act later .

    Moreover , she is so workaholic that she is not even in touch with her own feelings. In EP 3 , the writer showed us that when SY’s assistant , the lawyer who was poached by MW and resigned, she told SH in her hand phone text saying that strangely she didn’t feel any sadness . However , she felt her tears rolling down her face as she sat there quietly .

    One thing I think will be possible in this drama will be happy ending for all of them,maybe HJ stop her hate on SY and move on because her and SY have cross part and that part continues with her brother and SY sister,so the best is to forgive and forget if she think they wrong her,which myself don’t think so no one put a pen on her hand to sign the divorce papers.MW put his pant up as his mother warn him to do so that this is his second marriage and for his own image in the society,SY and SH find hope by having a bundle of babies.

    Sandy 2 Says:

    The logic on this thread in an effort to justify SH and SY is ridiculous. SH is the one to blame for the failure of his marriage. He was too busy putting himself first, that he didn’t look at the repercussion of his actions. He didn’t stand up for what was right and protect his marriage. HJ was too busy putting SH first in her life, that she didn’t realize he didn’t have her in the same place until later.

    He allowed a million little weeds to choke out the love he had for his wife from his heart. All marriages have tough moments. SH failed to understand and comprehend how HJ would have felt. She’s not stupid. No woman pays a person $1M without some other motive. She paid him more than a team of attorneys for 3 days work. SY after telling SH that he couldn’t talk to his wife, later informed him that he wouldn’t have to sleep with her. Although, he had every intention of doing just that when he accepted the offer. Why wouldn’t she let him call his wife to put her mind at ease? Because she wanted HJ to suffer and jump to the wrong conclusion because she wanted to break up this marriage. She is cruel.

    So when I read posts praising her character, I’m wondering if I’m talking to high schoolers. If you ever had a friend or family member to have someone cheat on them, I think you can then have a greater appreciate of the mental and emotional impact this has on a person. Being betrayed by your closest friend. The writer did a horrible job in my opinion of giving SH any likable qualities.

    I would have thought just the way they came together with her paying for him, that he would have rejected an expensive watch from her–giving him a tiny bit of a conscience. SH had none. It was like she’s paying for me and I’m going to take all I can get.

    If the writer wants us to believe that SH is capable of true love, he should have written this story differently. I don’t think the only thing he is in love with concerning SY, is her money and connections. He sees her as a means to an end.

    The funny thing about SY and SH’s relationship is it’s not built on trust or truth. They’re already lying to each other. It’s based on greed and wanting something that the other person possess. SY wanted SH from HJ. SH wants SY’s wealth and “status”. MW wants…..who knows what he wants, but we know it’s hard for him to remain content.

    The only person in this drama that is likable is Roy. The only person that has my pity is HJ.

    This drama has left me with absolutely no desire to see the two main leads in any future dramas. I’ve tried to watch them in a couple of dramas previously and I always ended up dropping them. This is no exception.

    I’m so thankful for the viewers in Korea who are posting messages to the writer of this drama on the station website with there disappointment in how this drama is developed. They have some very hard and though feelings for SH and SY’s character. They don’t like what they are seeing. It’s good to know that the people in Korea also see how flawed this type of love story is and the lack of morals.

    It’s like the writer started out with one story, then turned completely around and made this about SH and SY. I’m happy to hear that the South Korean public isn’t buying it and are complaining.

    NagNag Says:

    I salute the script writer for having the impossible task in trying to make the audience understand clearly each & every character in the plot .

    Firstly, you will probably have to be a business man or a person running your own business in order to realize how huge a financial plight SH was going thru’ & therefore, understand but may not necessarily accept , the reason why he did what he did desperately , in trying to get out of his plight…which is a whopping US$1M business debt suddenly. It’s REALLY not for the ordinary people to relate.

    Secondly, you will probably have to be filthy rich or a millionaire in order to be able to behave as arrogantly as SY , & understand but may not necessarily find it right , the sort of things which she could do with her great wealth . As the saying goes ” if you are as great as I am , it’s hard to be humble “…like it or not.

    Thirdly , in a typical marriage , if your are the typical wife like HJ , you would probably understand HJ’s behavior in her situation, the reason she thought was justified for her to divorce her husband SH , as well as all the blames she put on others except herself for her broken marriage. Sad to say this…

    most people are blaming SY for destroying HJ marriage,well let take back the clock to when HJ said to her husband that she loves and trust him,again 3 thousand dollars SH said let keep this money for emergency purposes HJ said let spend this money as your friend directed us to do,SH response are you sure we should spend this money?HJ said yes let spend it.

    Question,suppose no one was there when HJ jump into that ocean?what do you guys think SH life will be by now?a good one or a bad one?take for instances,SH will call the Hong Kong police report that his wife is missing,the police will now start to search for her,it might take a couple of days before her body will wash up in the shore,then here comes investigation on why or how come she is dead?first police focus will be on SH,then maybe if he is lucky enough there will found him innocent,at this time he has no money no place to go why because the 3thousand left had been spent,next take his wife body home.

    insurance will also question how HJ end up dead all this is going on,debtor come take HJ father houses,her father will be devastated with pain of losing his daughter plus her brother,husband will be taken to jail for embezzlement.

    I want to point out that this writer made mistake by having SY saying she was the wave that come to destroy the sand castle ,big lie,she wasn’t the wave because HJ was the wave that came to destroy the sand castle that she and her husband had built by her suicide,she had already lost all trust and confident on her husband to be able to save her father house, she no longer believes in her husband ability to be able to pull them out of off their troubles,she doesn’t want to start all over again or stay around to see what is going to happen, the only option she has was to die.any good moral person will know SH and HJ marriage was in trouble before or ever SY appeared to save the day,she saves HJ from dying,she paid their debt,people say SY is a bad person prevent SH from calling his wife I will recommend them to rematch EP1 again maybe they did not see clearly,the first day that rule was made SH broke that rule by still called his wife HJ did not answer he then call HJ brother,SY notice he broke the rule and confronted him,he became angry with himself start parking up his stuff,SY then told him that third rule crap he can go on and call his wife.

    In this earth we all live in,I have seen mothers sent their children into a journey to go in search of a good life all because money not knowing what might happen to that children on his or her way.who will give you 1million dollars for free,or 1 billion won for free,who will be that good Samaritan to do that?we all talk about moral,is it moral for HJ to take her own life when she clearly see how her husband is suffering from his fail business and a lot of debt.I can say this people who see HJ as a victim are heartless people who only think of themselves not care what or who their actions hurt or destroyed.

    Pink247 Says:

    As I watched the ep 13 This is SY feelings for SH.
    “I always feel anxious when you’re next to me. It’s because your future will get dark because of me. My future will get dark if you fade away from me.I can’t even hold on to you. I am uneasy that you will leave me someday. Whenever I go through a difficult time you always say this to me … ‘You have no arms and legs so I will hold onto you.’ I know that you will leave me someday but I can’t let you go.”

    That’s what I like about SY, she’s true about her self. And she knows her mistakes. CEO Yoo Se Young Fighting! I hope she will have a happy ending and maybe someday she will find her one TRUE LOVE!

    @ 437 plain
    well said!
    Objectively speaking all those lives saved from death or disgrace by SY and her 1 million $ offer are more important and priceless then a marriage between two people who didn’t share the same vision about anything, anymore much before they and SY even meet each other.
    In HJ’s eyes SH was / is an eternal loser, good for nothing as she sarcastic told him:
    “I thought you will love her (SY) until the end of the world /
    Was this your best? /
    Did you break up for good? /
    You’ve lost everything now. /
    You’ve lost your love and ambition.”
    How hypocrisy from someone who asked MW to destroy SY and SH.
    I wonder what would be MW’s reaction if he would know the truth about what really happened between SY, SH and HJ, because now he knows only what HJ told him and put her in advantage as victim.

    @Rose,thank you my dear,I agree with everything you said in your post.well after watching EP15raw,I think the women in this drama is getting tougher why the men are getting messy,HJ has woken up from her dream eventually,seeing in the preview slapping MW ex wife make me to say wow,is about time you wake up from your dream,as a wise woman how can you want revenge by openly telling the man that all you want from him is revenge and you don’t love him,now all he is giving you is revenge, is that not what you ask for HJ revenge?dear HJ when you want a revenge you can take that revenge on your own without involving your husband plus marrying a playboy you have the chance to make him promise you not to mess around and also
    remind him the reasons you broke up your marriage and you are not going to marry him or else he promise to be faithful to you,then it is left for him to decide weather he can promise you or not,now you see how true and really cheating is with MW,my guess you didn’t see this one coming when you were running your mouth about revenge.

    hopefully this writer divert your attention to protecting your marriage by fighting back instead of losing again.

    Now I don’t know why this writer keep having SY dreaming of SH and HJ,are you are trying to show us the different between the two women or you trying to destroy this couple,I hope you don’t have SH to misbehave by thinking he was the course of HJ problems,that will be hypocrisy of him to think like that because HJ is a grown up woman who was not born yesterday,she knows right from wrong and she know MW history before marrying him,she should learn to be independent as woman not whining all the time.please I don’t want insane writing,where everything is mess up without true meaningful message to the viewers.I will wait until ep15 is sub.

    Nne123 Says:

    I am sick and tired of divorce couples being brought back together in drama. If you give up on your marriage so easily like HJ did, then writers, keep her moving on. She divorced her husband so easily without any attempt to work on the marriage. All four main characters are flawed. It’s not always one person’s fault in a failed marriage (It takes two to tangle)

    However, mistakes have been made and HJ and SH are now in other relationships. In spite of how this relationships got to evolve, its a second chance to both of them so let it work out. Please writers do not bring back SH and HJ. That ship already sailed. Let SY have her man SH. HJ got her reward of revenge so she should find a cure for MW’s inability to keep his zippers up.

    This drama is messed up! I find it funny. The difference between SY and HJ in dealing with situations

    Sam Says:

    Well, this drama is not about you (to whoever thinks it about their experiences and feelings). This drama is how the writer wrote it to be. It is sad that perhaps you have similar experiences, and it’s clouding your understanding of this drama. Translation of course can also play a big factor;most especially if like most of us, you can’t speak or understand Korean.
    To enjoy drama, is to be attentive to the script and acting. Relating it always to personal experiences will give you a lopsided understanding.
    We love horror movies not because we experienced horror events in our lives. It’s because of the creative people who breathe life into these and made things believable and logical, thus there is the suspension of disbelief and acceptance of its plausibility.

    HJ is very selfish. If she really, deeply loved her husband, she should have trusted him from the start. She did not give him a chance to reconcile Instead pushed him away. She is blinded by jealousy and only want revenge. There is no love in her heart for anyone except herself. SY is way better, she cares. She deserves to be happy.
    Happy ending for SY please!!!

    HJ is showing her true colors more & more…

    Besides making use of MW for the purpose of having her revenge , she hit back at SY whenever possible by verbally abusing & cursing her… as well as retaliated at MW’s ex-wife HanJiSan by slapping her back. She is reaally a revengeful person.

    Can a revengeful person be a kind person ?… or

    Will a TRULY kind person take revenge when being provoked or wronged ?

    @Sandy2, totally agree what you have elaborated. I love Ep.15. HJ got into everyone’s nerves on this episode. This episode went on reverse mode, everyone seemed to be going thru what HJ had gone thru from the start. HJ got the upper hand on this episode.

    Can’t believe SY is trying to use SH to get information from HJ in regards to see if MW do business deals while she was at that cottage, so conniving

    I will first congratulate SH for wining the fight against MW,he truly own up his worlds that he will bring MW down, he did,you are a man SH.

    Now I will be ashamed if SY do something stupid by not believing SH for truly loving her.As for me if SH and HJ was to be in his apartment that could have been a different case but they were outside talking and two people who are not strangers can be excuse seeing them talking there is nothing bad for them not to talk, I also know the writer place that seen for SY to see it which I think it is unnecessary for that to happen,why will HJ be calling to apologize to SH? a man that she wish to sent to hell,and destroy only because her whole world come crashing down again by her stupid desire she is coming with apology to whom?she just got back to her father’s house while will she not wait for morning time before calling to apologize?which make no scene at all.And to be honest I was wishing to see a passionate hug or kiss and a happy news from SY health that she is pregnant but this writer is killing our hope for a happy SY and SH, This is why most dramas I have watched the ending leave me with sour taste in my mouth,which I do not watch the ending,I was seriously hoping this drama will prove me wrong to be the drama of the year for me,I will still wait for EP17 to finally decide if the ending worth my time or not.
