    […] TV Novel – Sam Saeng (KBS2) […]

  2. 2 : tigerb Says:

    if this replaces ‘love, my love’, why does it have to be in the ’70s again? because the set is alread there?

  3. 3 : tigerb Says:

    my mistake, in this website, ‘love, my love’ is called ‘dear love’. someone has explained to me why one drama series is titled in many ways, but i think it is perplexing, specially when i have to look for it in another web site to watch the series. i just need the patience.

  4. 4 : mauricia Says:

    Was already fooled by “love my love”…TERRIBLE DRAMA! Hope its different writers, Because I won’t waste my time watching this if it is.

  5. 5 : Chee Nyuk Ngo Says:

    I like to Samsaeng on Astro but the timing is not right for me. Every time it showed I was always not at home to watch it. I missed quite a number of episodes. I will it would be on dramacrazy so that I could watch it on my free own timing.
    Thank you.

  6. 6 : wuchuk Says:

    This drama is worth watching. Would recommend it. The story is really a good, meaningful and well written one. It is an intelligent piece.

  7. 7 : staghorn Says:

    When will the episodes with english subtitles be available on this website?

  8. 8 : sophia Says:

    I like this drama 🙂 so much better than the teenager cheesy dramas

  9. 9 : sk Says:

    love, my love is wasting my time it is the worst korean drama of all time, i hope samsaengi is better.

  10. 10 : AutoFill Haroldine Kronenberger Says:

    Watched first episode, so far I like it. It appears to be interesting.

  11. 11 : Vea Says:

    @CheeNyukNgo I’m watching this on Astro too.

    Well, the first 20 episodes are not that bad but I skipped a lot of episodes..hehe. Then came, episode 22 ( I think) the kids were already grown up and of course, the love story is obvious right? kekekeke. I really love watching this drama (nevertheless, 120 episodes ??? ahaha). 🙂

  12. 12 : badette Says:

    Samsaengi just started here in the U.S. “Love, My Love” ended early this week with an ending that was a culmination of weeks of preparation for drama watchers. What many of those who criticized this drama did not see is the beauty of how “love” and the art of “dyeing” are parallel to each other. With this drama, I respected Seunghi’s decision not to marry her step brother, Nogyeong…. because she would rather be a daughter instead of a daugther in law to her birth mother. I think the writers deserve praise for the way the drama had its “twist” and kept everything very touching, humorous and sad. I think “Samsaengi” will also be a beautiful drama. What lessons about the Korean culture these dramas have shared to its viewers… priceless!

  13. 13 : wwumo Says:

    where i can read recaps from this drama, does anyone hv link..? thank u

  14. 14 : Jenice Phung Says:

    Love the lead actress Hong Ah Reum. Enjoy watching this drama through astro.

  15. 15 : Maria Says:

    Didn’t get to see the end of “love, my love” because of changed airing time. Episodes are now at 12.50am, & I can’t stay up that late — not much time between that & the time I have to get up for work.

  16. 16 : Ronald Yap Says:

    A very touching novel, dating far back real life situation and living conditions ! It shows us how the people suffered through that periods. So far have enjoy the show very much !!

  17. 17 : Jasmine Says:

    On ‘Love, My Love’ I ended up disappointed. Samsaengi will do the same thing. I’m so afraid she’s into Jiseong because I prefer Dongwu becomes her man… 😀 😀 Peace! (sorry for my goofy English)

  18. 18 : wuchuk Says:

    This drama is more than a hundred episodes to go. It is a long story. The characters’ and families’ lives are all in some sort of flux here. They look like that they are still finding their place in the scheme of life/society. I think many more events and churning will happen before there is any stabilisation in their lives. So I guess there is no use speculating or guessing what will happen. Things will fall into their rightful place one by one when the time comes, during the span of these hundred over episodes. Meanwhile, anything can happen…… in their life journey.

    Meanwhile, we can already see that an obvious change has happened to Samsaegi’s family. Her family’s lives has improved, from being dirt poor in the boondoks, to a new and better life…..

  19. 19 : badette Says:

    I am totally enjoying the daytime dramas on KBS. They are clearly introducing us to Korean/Asian culture… first it was the “makeoli” or rice wine; then, hand dyeing of cloth, now, oriental medicine. Their dramas aren’t only always about love but entwined with it is something educational. The evening dramas offered architecture, now.. advertising. Wow… what creative writers. They may not give us what we want as an ending; but, that’s life!

  21. 21 : wuchuk Says:

    The guy, Mr Sa (who is the bio father of Guemok, Dr Bong’s daughter) really gives me the creeps. He is evil but nobody suspects this, not even Dr Bong. He is so good at protraying himself a respected gentleman. Only Samsaengi knows that he is awfully bad and evil.

    He is currently enjoying what he thought he has it made, and that his evil plans are coming together. But….. he has not reckoned that there are no secrets in this world, that it is a matter of time when his secret will be found out. Who will defeat him?

    I can understand why Guemok hates him and feels so uncomfortable around him. It’s the way he attaches himself to Guemok so closely that he practically dictates her life ! Would you believe it, there were even times when he would enter her bedroom at will to talk to her without any respect for her privacy as if he is Dr Bong (Guemok’s father). Of course Geumok would protest each time , but he just would not care. Come on Creep, Geumok is a female, and a young adult at that, don’t just simply “rub” shoulders with her. Give her some space.

    The story is getting to be more interesting now, as Geumok has found out that this Creep is her bio father. He told her. This, plus the lies and bad advice fed to her by this Creep, make her more confused making her identity crisis going into a whirlwind of mix feelings…. Geumok really needs help to get out of this hell hole that the Creep is leading her into, but who can help her without her exposing her secret lineage? Poor girl !

    Meanwhile, there are many more developments happening around the lives of the characters in this drama…… getting more interesting now.

    Sorry I am jumping ahead of Roses4life. Since I am already here, I might as well answer your question. I too had visited Soompi upon Roses4life’s suggestion and had a good time at Samsaengi’s thread there because of the great discussions posted.

    When you arrived at the Soompi site :

    Click “Forum” ( top of page).

    A list of threads for different genre appears.

    Scroll till you see “k-drama & movies”. Click it.

    A list of threads for dramas appear. Many dramas listed, each with it’s own thread.

    Scroll till you see TV Novel Samsaengi thread. Click it.

    The site for Samsaengi appears. Here you will see the discussions and opinions shared by fans of this drama, and you will also be able to read gene71632’s recaps. As there is no special page for the recaps, so the recaps appear as gene71632’s posts in this thread.

    Hope the above info helps.

  27. 27 : staghorn Says:

    Keep up the good work gene71632 ! Appreciate much.

  29. 29 : mml Says:

    Two weeks ago, i accidentally discovered this drama,
    over the two weeks , i have been watching from episode 1 to episode 20 .
    I have found this cute kids’ drama for adults to watch.
    I liked Samsaengi, this drama got a total of 120episodes, a little bit too long.
    I will continue watching episode 21 to understand and to find out what will happen to Samsaengi .
    I hope when she grown up , her father will be able to recognise her and will acknowledge her as his real daughter.
    The little boy who was the rich man’s son , i hope, when he grown up, he will falls in love with Samsaengi and will find their romance and get happiness and can get along together to pair up as a loving couple.

    Since, is a total of 120 episodes, i hope i will continue watching and can complete watching the whole drama.

  30. 30 : JP Says:

    I hope Sam saeng will be with Dong Woo eventually. He has been there for her all along and the sense of happiness when they are together.

  31. 31 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 21 to 25, another nice kids and adults drama.

    At episode 25 ,am glad that her foster father had given her moral support to pursue her study.
    The foster father is kind and understanding, not bad , he has changed to a better person.

  32. 32 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 26 to 31 , why Samsaengi
    worked so hard, but her foster mother did not treat her better, paying for her sister’s school fees, should ber parent’s responsibility, why stress Samsaengi ??

    Why did the real father did not find detective to investigate the current daughter , is it his real daughter…..

    Samsaengi is a really pitiful child, she is a good girl.
    I hope she can find her real father……

    Okay, i will continue to watch episode 32 .

  33. 33 : wuchuk Says:

    mml 32

    Samsaengi’s “mother” is a clatterbrain and is empty headed without a sense of civility. This is her character.

    Samsaengi’s real father (Dr Bong) did not get a detective to investigate the current daughter (Geumok) is because he does not know that Geumok is not his bio daughter.

    Dr Bong did not know that Mr Sa had switched the little girls when they were very young, when he was separated from them during the Korean War.

    The interesting part is that even Clatterbrain does not know that Samsaengi is not her bio daughter !

    As you go along watching this drama, you will notice that Geumok’s character is more like the Clatterbrain’s (her bio mother) and that Samsaengi ‘s character is more like Dr Bong’s (her bio father’s intelligence, etc). The girls do inherit some of their bio parent’s genes afterall.

    There is no mistaking this, no matter what deception Mr Sa had done , he could not fool nature.

    Meanwhile, let’s leave Dr Bong to live his life in his own cocoon, oblivious to the many interesting events happening around him. Otherwise, there will be no Samsaengi drama for us to watch, eh?

  34. 34 : wuchuk Says:

    As for the eventual pairing of Samsaengi /Ji Seong or Samsaengi /Dong Wu, at this stage it is hard to tell. I hesitate to guess the outcome. Have got no clue what it will be.

  35. 35 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 32 to 38

    Her foster mother not only empty brain . In episode 34 , she was very greedy, she stole the dried fish……

    Her real daughter (Son Sung Yoon)also very bad, damaged the song cd whereby her friend(Ji II Joo) gave her as a gift.

    At episode 35, the guy(Ji II Joo) discovered that she damaged the song cd, her nature is wicked , why her character was the same as her real father.

    At episode 36, Samsaengi will sit for her exam , why the foster mother asked Dr Bong to sponsor for scholarship? I think her foster mother is not stupid, she is clever in money.
    But, towards great disappointment was, she did not turn up for her exam due to unforseen happenings.

    At episode 38, Samsaengi she got tuberculosis sickness, will she die ??
    In olden days, tuberculosus this sickness , cannot be cured.
    If, Samsaengi will die, then this is a sad drama……. How……..

  36. 36 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 39 to 43

    Strange, Samsaengi got recovered in episode 41.
    I think miracles happened and god bless her.

    At episode 43, i have found it very irritating when Song Sung Yoon, her real father came back to stay with them.
    Her real father very wicked and this time he will stay with them and will not move out anymore. Scary to have this wicked father.

    Okay i will continue to watch episode 44.

  37. 37 : Dede Says:


    Love your notes. Haven t watched this drama, but your funny notes may cause mr to watch, Thanks. LOL

  38. 38 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 44 to 51

    Episode 44, Samsaengi finally entered to the university to study.
    But, on the other hand, sad to know that Son Sung Yoon , her real father taught her to be wicked, so that she can remain her current lifestyle situation and status of her reputation.

    Episode 45, Samsaengi’s foster mother quite clever, at least, she asked Yoo Tae Woong to acknowledge Samsaengi as her daughter.
    Ji II Joo his parents very cute and interesting, although they were greedy in making money for their family business, their plot and ideal copy cat and followed from Samsaengi.
    The master did not eat their food they bribe.
    The exercise that Samsaengi was teaching Ji II Joo was funny and interesting.

    Episode 46, Ji II Joo’s parents busy in understanding and pleasing the master. Comedy came in, when the master
    stayed at their house.

    Episode 47, Samsaengi emotionally unwell as undue stress after realising she was abandoned by her father.

    Episode 48, in order to stay with his aunt so that Ji II Joo can meet Samsaengi easily, he and the master tricked his parents
    regards to fengshui, i think Ji II Joo his mother always talkative , vain and cute, her eyes very cute like barbie doll.

  39. 39 : mml Says:

    @37 Dede,
    this is a funny drama , starting from episode 39 onwards…

    You can try watching this drama, especially when the master stayed at their house.
    He is a medical master, but the funny thing is he can be a fortune teller, he can predict things, strange and curious and he can also create comedy……

  40. 40 : mml Says:

    I have finished watching episode 52 to 54

    Episode 52,
    Samsaengi got super natural magic power, she can break the bottle and later on when Son Sung Yoon reached home, she became copy cat and she used Samsaengi’s method but was unable to break the bottle.
    Samsaengi her foster mother this time again very greedy, she stole to share using owner’s daughter’s shampoo.
    The owner’s daughter realised that her bottle of shampoo almost finishing and suspected that someone stole to share using her shampoo.. She complained to her mother that Samsengi her family stole to share using her shampoo.
    Ji II Joo went to look for the master, he went to seek help fron the master.
    He wanted to learn a gongfu magic power skill, the master liked him and appreciated his sincerity, therefore , he agreed to teach him.

    Episode 53,
    Samsaengi foster mother why money from Tae Woong, who knows in order to pay her, he misappropriated funds.

  41. 41 : bigeye46 Says:

    i watch few time..nice drama but so sad..

  42. 42 : jessie Says:

    Dr Bong is really siilly. From the painting that was found in the shack, it is obvious that samsaeng looks like her bio mother. How is it that Dr Bong who sees Samsaengi practically everyday does not realise that Samsaeng looks like his wife. He should have already guessed that something was wrong somewhere. Even Il Joo can tell from the painting that the picture resembles Sammsaeng.

  43. 43 : roses4life Says:

    Hi staghorn, sorry for the late reply. You can type “Soompi Samsaengi” in google search and the link to the site will appear. Happy reading!

  44. 44 : wuchuk Says:

    Hmmnn…. I have wondered about it too, that is, how come Dr Bong seems to miss the point that Samsaengi looks like her bio mother.

    It is possible that he does have an inkling, but ‘cos of the presence of his “daughter” Geumok, it is possible that he is in self denial that there is a possibility of someone else being his daughter.

    But, I believe that Dr Hwang had long ago suspected who Samsaengi is, but he has kept it to himself, for reasons he only knows. I believe that it is possible that he might use this piece of knowledge later in the story to resolve a dire situation.

    The clue that I got about Dr Hwang knowing Samsaengi’s true identity was when he (Dr H) was reading the horoscope and face of Geumok (fortune telling), etc. and he mentioned that the face of the girl does not match that of the horoscope. And I remember that he had mentioned this point again somewhere in a later following episode, but none of the people he spoke to (Jiseong’s parents) picked up this point. I believed at that point, he was hinting about the true identities of the girls. As his character goes, he did not push the matter (meaning, not bitch about it) and let the matter slide when he did not get a reaction to what he was hinting at.

    Somehow, I get the feeling that Dr Hwang is an astute guy. He may not seem appealing as a grumbling and nagging old man, but he is rather wise, smart and sharp. He and Dong Wu might, in the end, be the ones who save the day for the good guys.

    This is just my speculation.

  45. 45 : mml Says:

    @43 roses4life,
    thank you for providing google search, usually i will go to China Baidu website, therefore google search may not be useful to me.

    @44 wuchuk,
    i agree with your thinking, sound logic.

    I have finished episode 55 to 64
    Episode 56,
    Ji II Joo jealous that Samsaengi got boyfriend.

    Episode 57,
    Ji II Joo was frustrated to understand that Samsaengi got a steady boyfriend.
    And Yoo Tae Woong couldn’t cheat the money, therefore he put back the money.

    Episode 58,
    Samsaengi is considerating the guy who proposed to her .
    Her foster mother kept on harass Yoo Tae Woong for the money.

    Episode 59,
    Samsaengi her love relationships getting complicated and difficult.
    Her foster brother , loveline also getting tough and uneasy.

    Episode 60,
    Ji II Joo was reluctant to marry with Son Sung Yoon, therefpre,he went to inform Dr Bong.

    Episode 61,
    Yoo Tae Woong wanted to match make her daughter, but was unsuccessful due to phone call was then interrupted, therefore, he missed the chance to do so.

    Episode 62,
    Yoo Tae Woong told the maiden about his past.

    Episode 64,
    Samsaengi can’t love Ji II Joo, but Ji II Joo still can’t give up his decisions.
    Ji II Joo his mother always chased after him about his love planning.

  46. 46 : syrena Says:

    I’ve been following this drama.

    Just hoping that it will be Samsaeng and Dongwu in the end.

    I am not into Jiseong at all. I find him selfish and inconsiderate of his parent’s thoughts and feelings. He can’t get what he wants and the first thing he does was to run away. Lucky Samsaeng found him in the mountains, otherwise, he should be dead by now. Ah well, that’s why we have dramas in the first place. The twists and turns make them.

    Nonetheless, I enjoy watching it and should the writers and director decide to end the story with Samsaeng and Dongwu, I’ll be a happy bunny. :).

  47. 47 : Wuchuk Says:

    Cannot blame Jiseong for being what he is. This is because he’s been brought up differently by parents who are too overly doting and clingy, as compared to Dong Wu, who is an orphan and had to look after himself all his life. So between the two, of course DongWu has the better opportunities to develop his character and survival skills.

    However, as we can see, Jiseong. is slowly trying to break away from his parents’ tight apron strings. If he were to try hard, he might at least succeed a little. Otherwise, his horizon would just forever be that horizon only. His mum is too clingy. Clingy parents are bad news for their children.

    Regarding Samsaengi’s birth secret, I have been thinking. Could there be a twist to it. Maybe, she is Dr Hwang’s daughter afterall. Could it be possible that her mother and Dr Hwang were lovers, but she was forced to marry Dr Bong by her parents (match made) and it so happened that she was already pregnant with Dr Hwang’s baby? If this is the case, it could be possible that Dr Bong does know the real birth story of Samsaengi, and this could account for why he is so cool about claiming parenthood to Samsaengi ? And Dr Hwang does not know that Samsaengi is his, because he was never told about the pregnancy ?

    Haaa…. all the twists and turns in a drama. This can happen, since this is such a long drama it gives plenty of room for “playing” with it. You know, such as, a story within a story, within another story, within another story, etc so as to keep the drama going ?

    Lately, I am beginning to get fed up with Samsaengi. Why can’t she stand firmly on her own two feet? Why must she want to please everybody? Yes, everybody !! And is she still holding on to her crush for Jiseong?

    Grrrrr, I think I need to take a break from this drama for a short while. The drama seems to be stuck in a rut, nothing progressive seems to be happening.

  50. 50 : jessie Says:

    The more I watch this picture the more sick I get of Dr Bong. He is all curled up in his cocoon, oblivious to everything that is going on around him. He stays in the same house as Geumok’s bio father and Geumok and does not suspect the abnormal way that the bio father is so interested in Geumok in everything she does even to a point of walking in and out of her room. Geumok is already a young lady. Even if he was only a close friend, he would not do such a thing. Yet Dr Bong doesnt suspect anything. That he is more than being a close friend. I wish Dr Bong’s mother will come back to haunt them. The person I pity most is Samsaengi’s “stepfather.” He is such a nice man. The two ladies are also so stupid. How can they not insist on finding out how a very bad scar can vanish. Something must be wrong somewhere…Lets hope everything goes back to its proper place in the end….

    @49 anna,
    glad to see you here, usually you are at a hundred year’s inheritance website.

    I’m watching Samsaengi 蔘生 at only China website.
    At the moment, dramacrazy, dramastyle , dramafever, ,youtube do not have this drama .

    I think taiwan tudou website and 中国网China website have this drama.

    China 中国 网website, pptv ,youku also have this drama .

    I hope you will like this drama, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, sometimes sad, sometimes longwinded, sometimes rowdy and sometimes happy.

    ” I hope you will like this drama, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, sometimes sad, sometimes longwinded, sometimes rowdy and sometimes happy.”

    Hahaha ! You make me laugh with your description. Yes, this is what I find about this drama too.

    ” I wish Dr Bong’s mother will come back to haunt them. ”

    Hahaha !! This is hilarious ! Why didn’t I think of this before, eh?

    Yes, yes, if only Bong Grandmama would come haunt them.

    Samsaengi’s stepfather’s life is “doomed” the day he got hooked up with his wife.

    But again, as we look at it, he did not mind the way she is. He still loved her enough to have her for his wife and to bear with her nonsense until Samsaengi came into their lives and change the pattern and course of their lives. It’s as if Samsaengi has thrown a spanner in an otherwise workable existence for a dysfunctional family.

    ( Samsaegi’s step father, is one of those type of guys who are unconciously “attracted” to such women. Otherwise, let’s think, in real life, what would happen to such type of women whom we can find everywhere in the world if nobody wants them? So, no matter how unpleasant they are, they will find their better halfs. That’s how “fate” / nature works, I guess. Life works in mysterious ways. )

    As for the two ladies, in my opinion, we cannot expect too much from them. They are just two bored mothers, with nothing much to keep them occupied or entertained. Their source of entertainment is only what is in their domestic world, and this is what makes their world go round. In other words, their’s is a small world. They are contented with their world, and would not know what they miss.

    Don’t think their role would contribute much to the story, except as a filler and to create some excitement in the drama.

    Sorry, for the rant and ramble.

  54. 54 : Wuchuk Says:

    I have a feeling that for all the scheming and evil deeds that are being perpetrated by the greedy and evil people (Geumok, her bio father and Samsaengi’s mother) to take over the Bong riches and business, that in the end, their efforts will be in vain, and they will come up empty handed.

    Here are the reasons why not :

    Bong Pharma might have to close, due to embezzlement by Geumok’s father there will be nothing left in the company, plus the trouble with the Tax Authorities for tax evation will force its closure.

    Dr Bong might die (somehow) and as Geumok is not capable as a herbal med. doctor, she would not be able to take over the business, and hence it will have to be closed…… or else Samsaengi take over.

    Should this be the case, I will have a good laugh.

    @52 Wuchuk,
    my parents originally came from HongKong. I’m from a cantonese background family.

    My English maybe not as good as you and sound a little funny. And my chinese sound even more funny, only my cantonese and korean language sound more accurate.

    Anyway, i hope you will like this drama, sometimes funny people like funny drama.

    Can bring in happy comedy effect…..

  56. 56 : bigeye46 Says:

    geumok is daughter greedy mum and she dun want live poor famliy
    samsaengi should take over bong business.

  57. 57 : Wuchuk Says:

    mml 55

    I would try to watch this drama as much as I can and whenever I can. But have to admit that sometimes I do not watch every episode. It’s because the drama moves too slow for my liking.

    By the way, not to be bothered about English language skills. Just write what you wish to say and express yourself in your own way. Communicating is more important than the standard of the language.

  58. 58 : mml Says:

    @57 Wuchuk,
    kamsahamida Chin.gu,谢谢Wuchuk,
    actually, i watch every episode is because, each episode is about half an hour, moreover, is not very sad drama, therefore,
    i will continue to watch .

    My chinese is super funny, therefore, i do not like to watch chinese drama.

    Sometimes,i watch cantonese drama, but, most of the time, i watch Korea drama.

    If, you think this drama moves too slow, i will recommend a fast and interesting dramas, MBC Korea drama , call a Hundred year’s inheritance (百年的遺產)
    and also a TvN Korea drama call Crazy Love (瘋狂的愛情)
    , and also SBS drama call Your Woman (你的女人)
    i like all these dramas, not funny dramas, they are romantic dramas .

    You can consider to try watching…….

  59. 59 : nelly kirchner Says:

    I have a question. How does Samsaengi’s mother, got to know that Samsaengi is not her daughter and Mr Sa changed the babies? I could not watch some episodes last week and now I am lost. Thanks

  60. 60 : bigeye46 Says:

    geumok seem so jealous everything for smsaengi..yes mr sa swap the baby anf i not sure now

    samsaengi’s mum wont tell unless she want greedy herself than share family and hope that that matter resolve themself i guess

  63. 63 : bigeye46 Says:

    geumok is so selfish now

  64. 64 : faiva tepoli Says:

    #47 Wuchuk..

    I am thinking the same story plot as u. Yeah u r right when u said a story within a story so as to keep the drama going. When there’s too many of it makes the drama to loose its, should i say, aura.

    Nevertheless, the drama is getting exciting now even when I am at epi 80 which is still a long way to the ending.

  65. 65 : joy Says:

    I get frustated with this TV drama…are people of old times that naive? People in this drama makes me think what a drag.Can’t believe the step father of Samsaeng is poisoned by the evil Mr. Sa.Hate it! Bad wins over good guy.

  66. 66 : bigeye46 Says:

    yes mr sa is wicked and horrible person also geumok is worse now and look like she wont to her mum real home.samsaeng belong to bong.i think samsaengi never forgive mr sa and geumok’s mum

  67. 67 : bigeye46 Says:

    samsaengi mum and sa and geumok are same so cruel bec they dun want pple know to find out about secret..thing i hated it

  68. 68 : bigeye46 Says:

    samsaeng mum too close to sa and her mum is big mouth to tell mr sa everything and mr sa take action fast and never let samsaeng and other pple know and hope samsaeng find out quickly than mr sa

  69. 69 : Sunny Says:

    This drama is just getting boring and story line is just dragging! Anyone know who get to be with each other? Samsaeng with Park Don Woo or Oh Ji Sung? Did they ever find out who is this two daughter belong to?

  70. 70 : bigeye46 Says:

    yes it boring but they are good actor and actress

  71. 71 : mauricia Says:

    Boring is right! I’m tired of Samsaengi always looking like a deer caught in the headlights anytime anyone asks her a question…any question, “huh” “what”, makes her appear stupid or hard of hearing. Come on writers do your job with the dialog and story line. Don’t let this be another “Love my love”. There are however, a few interesting characters, Please, please writers, redeem yourselves after the “Love my love: fiasco.

  72. 72 : nasrin Says:

    I agree with u.She is going to be a doctor,but
    sometimes she looks like a stupid person.

  73. 73 : Wuchuk Says:

    @mauricia (71) and @nasrin (72)

    I feel the same about Samsaengi too.

    Could it be because we are expecting too much of our heroine (SS) ?

    I am interested in following her progress in life and how she will end up as a great herbal medicine doctor …. but lately the story has veered into a detective story, and……

  74. 74 : bigeye46 Says:

    yes. samsaengi seem dun know anything and hope the matter is solve fast

  75. 75 : bigeye46 Says:

    mr sa is too much while geumok is steal something from dong woo..samsaengi mum should tell samsaengi earlier..yet she keep it so long already and think samsaengi wont forgive her mum once she find out truth

  76. 76 : nasrin Says:

    Samsaeng was smart,takative,brave and clever when she was young.What happen to her now!!!!!!!!!!.Dear writer wake up please!,,,,,,,,,

  77. 77 : bigeye46 Says:

    finally samengi found out soonand she realise that too late now

  78. 78 : bigeye46 Says:

    too bad mr sa and geumok block way from bong and cant allow samengi to tell dr bong now..

  79. 79 : Wuchuk Says:

    Aigoooooo ! Good grief !

    Oh help me ! I am feeling like all my strength has been drained out of me. This is what this drama is doing to me. It is a slow journey to madness for me.

    I started out watching this drama hoping to get to “look” into the oriental medicine aspects of the Korean culture. …. but what happened ? I got sucked into some maschosistic writer’s nightmare. Oh good grief ! Have mercy on me !

    Aigooo ! Holy kimchee, please help me !

    (Never mind my whining here. I am doing it to make myself feel better. Need this self theraphy.

  80. 80 : mauricia Says:

    Good grief is right! The drama is so tedious and redundant …I might have to give it up. I find myself yelling at the TV because the acting and dialog is so BAD!

    The actress playing Samseangi is TERRIBLE. I saw her in different drama and her acting was equally as bad as it is now. I shouldn’t have expected more.

    Wake up KBS writers. You should have learned from the previous AWFUL daytime drama “Love my love”. I think you will lose a lot of viewers if you keep this up.

  81. 81 : tigerb Says:

    my experience with the kbs morning shown dramas is exasperating because the writing is so extended to the number of episodes they originally planned although the plot is so simple. some korean viewers must love them because kbs keeps on making them, unfortunately they are shown outside of s.korea. i know, i always have the choice to watch them or not, so i flip channels and watch something else, and go back to the series when it’s almost done for the day, just to see what happened last and what to expect next. i guess these kind of dramas is not so bad for people who have to be at home to do household chores and turn on the tv to let time fly faster!

  82. 82 : bigeye46 Says:

    hope dr bong find out truth after her mum tell and mr sa caught n put in jail..sigh

  83. 83 : bigeye46 Says:

    dr bong learn truth now wait for 20 ep go on.

  84. 84 : Wuchuk Says:

    It looks like Mr Sa (KiJin) is having the upper hand now. He’s on a destructive path and running amok. And….. why do the poor victims allow him to control them ?

    Mr Sa’s weak points are GeumOk and the secret they harbored.

    The only way to destroy them i(Mr Sa & GeumOK) is fight fire with fire. Expose their fraud, loud and clear.

    Dr Bong holds the key to Mr Sa’s destruction, if nobody’s else has the wherewhithal to do so.

    Dr Bong should stop hiding, come out of his cocoon, and DECLARE officially that Samsaengi is his lawful and bio daughter, and that GeumOk is a fake, etc etc and then he should go on to expose Mr Sa’s other crimes such as embellzement, slush funds, briberies, physical intimidation, etc, etc.

    Take this responsibility, Dr Bong !

    When the “expose” is done, do you think Mr Sa will not hesitate to backoff from his mad run of power ? He might even have to start covering his tracks or runaway now that he’s been exposed. And the public and people in authority will be pushed to take a second look at the matter ? And open up a proper investigation.

    Dr Bong should not hide anymore. He should take action.

    Because, Dr Bong has been hiding all this while, doing nothing proactive or constructive, leaving it to Dong Woo to protect him and his daughter (Samsaengi), he has allowed Mr Sa and GeumOk the gall to hold their evil power exacting fear and devastation on those poor folk.

    Dr Bong, stop being selfish and a coward !

    Dr Bong, time to do your duty now. You owe it to the many good folks who have died or suffered for what you did not do, in the first place !!

  85. 85 : Naaz Says:

    I simply love this drama. Everyday i look forward to see new episodes uploaded. Please put them

  86. 86 : Sunny Says:

    This drama is dragging so long and getting Boring! what gives with the writer? Is the writer going to dissppoint us again with the two othe TV Love Novel (Bokhee) and (Love My Love) Which was so terrible ending with that many episode! Wasting of time and energy! That Mr. Sa and Daughter Gemouke need to be Punish for all Wrong they commited! Aigoo! As For Samsaeng, she need to wake up and act more aggressive, she looks and act like a dummy and let all people aroung her take advantage of her!

  87. 87 : bigeye46 Says:

    sigh dr bong try his best help them but mr sa should put jail asap after doing big evil more and i agree w wuchuk..

  88. 88 : bigeye46 Says:

    mr sa seem refuse give up bec he decide what he want and not allow them off and hope mr sa put jail long term he go on evil plan when the secret is expose soon

  89. 89 : bigeye46 Says:

  96. 96 : Richelle Says:

    I’m Jamaican and I love this show. So simple and clean with great actors and actresses. I’m so disappointed I discovered it more than half way through. I don’t know how to see the previous episodes:(

  97. 97 : viktor Buchholz Says:

    I’m German and I love this show. I encourage my children to learn from this story. I solved the problem with the short episodes by recording 4-5 shows on Tivo and playing them in one setting. This Drama could be going on for a hole Years.

  98. 98 : Arali Says:

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoy these programs. I am American. She is African. She tells me that village life seems to be the same the world over.

  99. 99 : bea Says:

    Dies Samseung find out that Dr. BONG is her natural father

  100. 100 : badette Says:

    I just watched episodes 99 and 100. You can’t give up on this drama. I can’t wait for the following episodes because now, Mr. Sa has somehow figured a way for the police to look for Jiseon and Samsaengi and charge them with espionage. Figure that out… I guess some members of the police is crooked. Those of you dying to find out when Dr. Bong finds out about Samsaengi being his daughter and how? Soon…. very much of a touching moment and your eyebrow will go up when you find out something is “cooking” between Dongwu and Dr. Bong. I just hope Dr. Bong survives after all his discoveries… remember what happened to Samsaengi’s stepdad?
    Enjoy… don’t give up…. things are falling into place

  101. 101 : Bea Says:

    So Dr. Bong is going realize is his natural daughter. What episode? Where can watch with English subtitles.

  102. 102 : badette Says:

    Dr. Bong found out through Samsaengi’s “mother” about the switch and who his real daughter is… around either episode 98 or 99… from mid-90’s episode, everything started unfolding. I am now watching 106 and the two, Samsaengi and Jiseong are “wanted for espionage”… thanks for Mr. Sa. Dr. Bong and Dongwu are trying their best to shield Samsaengi, who has not been “captured by the police”(actually hired by Mr. Sa). Yesterday’s episode had Geumok pleading for Jiseong’s release from captivity from Mr. Sa. But, Mr. Sa told her if he lets Jiseong go, he, himself will be in jeopardy and be in trouble with the law. I watch the show on Comcast cable channel 257 and it has English subtitles. I really don’t know where else to watch it… sorry….

  103. 103 : sunmin Says:

    This Drama was a waste of my Time! Terrible drama! How in the world they can forgive Geumok and her real dad Mr Sa for the many evil, terrible things they done to Samsaengi and her mom and step dad! Both Mr Sa and daughter should have been punish for all the very evil things they done and
    Geumok covering for her real dad, deceiving everyone, beyond my belief!
    As for Ji Sung, falling in love again with Geumok , and his parents accept her, which is soooooooooooooooooooooooo UNREAL after all the Evil and lies she and her dad Mr Sa did and still be accepted is really UNCALL for!
    They should have call this DRAMA “LET’S FORGIVE”…
    All TV LOVE NOVEL DRAMA ENDING IS and HAS BEEN TERRIBLE AT THE ENDING and episode has been toooooooooooooooo long, getting everyone excited from the first START, then the DISSAPOINTMENT when the DRAMA END! Such a WASTE of TIME!
    Example: BOKHEE such ending ????? – LOVE MY LOVE stupid ending now this Drama TERRIBLE ! TERRIBLE ENDING!

  104. 104 : badette Says:

    I will make my decision as to whether it is a terrible drama or not once the drama is over. I am still interested in what is going on and what may happen. I have enjoyed the other daytime dramas, except the ones that had to deal with angels stranded on earth. I forgot the title of that one. Anyway.. what I also look for in the dramas is what I can learn from it. This drama has given me a great deal of insight about Oriental medicine and how police can be corrupt in other countries as well. The one before this had to do with Korean dyeing of materials using herbs and creating hanbok, another one had to do with rice wine. All of these dramas may have had disappointing dramas but, in life… reality…? doesn’t always end satisfying.

  105. 105 : badette Says:

    Ugh…. I am watched episodes 109 and 110 yesterday… sad but Jiseong “gave up” Samsaeng in order for him to be released, as well as for his parent’s well being. So, now, Samsaeng is in jail being interrogated for spying. One satisfying part of the two episodes is when Dongwu slapped Geumok…. boy did she have it coming to her. I wish he slapped her more times! I think she is starting to get suspicious of Dr. Bong knowing something about her(Geumok) because he is acting strangely. All this week, our t.v. channel here is playing 2 episodes per day. I guess to rush it to the end…. it is supposed to only have 120 episodes…. can’t wait to the ending. I read on another forum that Jiseong and Geumok got back together and Samsaengi ended up with Dongwu. We shall see…

  106. 106 : Pitzel Says:

    Help. KBS no longer broadcasts on my DISH network,so now I have watched 110 episodes, just to be in limbo. Please someone tell me how this ends, I am sorry if it will spoil it for others, but if I could find it online, I would watch it there. Thanks.

  107. 107 : Renkon-chan Says:

    KBS pulled the plug from Dish Network this afternoon. They went with Direct TV. Still had 5 more episodes to watch out of the 120. What a bad timing!

  108. 108 : mauricia Says:

    I know, that SUCKS! big time. The plug was actually pulled from DISH in mid program. I have already set up my appt for Direct TV installation, & if I counted correctly, I may get to see episode 120. Also, Direct TV also offers MBC & SBS + a lot of other Korean channels that DISH doesn’t!

    In any event, please, please, please let us (former) DISH customers know what happened (in detail) with the ending for this drama.

    One more thing, KBS will be on DIRECT TV starting Sat 8/10.

  109. 109 : Patty Says:

    I am also a disgruntled Dish Network subscriber—and I called and let them know it. I would like to see how this ends—only 5 more episodes to go. I want to see Mr. Sa get it! He is evil personified.

  110. 110 : badette Says:

    I am a Comcast subscriber, wishing we had SBS. But, KBS has been a good supplier of variety shows and dramas to keep me busy nightly. Let’s see… Geumok reported Samsaeng’s whereabouts. Samsaeng was interrogated by “police” for espionage. Dr. Bong found a way to get Samsaeng free by asking a former general, whose life he saved during the war (and used it as his excuse to ask the general for help… if it wasn’t for him being separated from his family, his daughter would not have been exchanged with the decoy baby, Geumok),… Samsaengi was freed… beautiful and tearful reunion between Dr. Bong and Samsaengi; but, Samsaeng is doubtful of Dongwu. She believes Dongwu told Geumok that Samsaeng was in his office. So, Dongwu is in trouble… yesterday’s episode, he was in a warehouse… Mr. Sa had him “kidnapped” because of the cufflink … he found out(through his police connection) that his cufflinks were the designer one and Dongwu’s was a copy.(Remember, Geumok took one of Dongwu’s cufflink to make up for Mr. Sa’s missing one… the one in dead father’s hand?). Anyway…. Mr. Sa and Geumok left the house… on their own but Mr. Sa is determined to seek revenge…. So, that’s the nitty gritty of what has happened so far…

  111. 111 : Bryan Says:

    I am very dissapoited was watching the program from the first and now they just up and pulled the feed there is alot of people who like to watch Korean drams from the United States

  112. 112 : Bryan Says:

    In respons to Mauricia I allready called diret tv and asked them about KBS and they act like they didnt know what i was talking could not tell me anyhing but i hope soon they get it on

  113. 113 : mauricia Says:

    Don’t give up hope Bryan. It took me about 3 hours or so on the phone with Direct TV until I got the answers that I needed. Had to go up to several levels of management/supervision until somebody knew what I was talking about. The communication process left lot to be desired…..but I did succeed.

    The process for getting KBS from DISH wasn’t much better either. The customer reps are clueless and they neglect to tell you that you need different or special satellites to get “international channels” I was a customer for over 5 years of DISH only because they offered KBS. Their service sucked out loud, but I endured because they were the only provider for KBS. Now I don’t have to be bothered with them.

    So, I you go with DIRECT TV, make sure to ask the right questions, otherwise, the first line customer reps won’t have a clue about what you’re asking.

  114. 114 : mauricia Says:

    Oh, almost forgot, KBS is offered in the “ultimate package” and higher for no additional charge. The add-on channels for MBC, SBS etc. costs about $26 per month (which I did order). If its not good I can cancel the add-ons without any early penalty charges at anytime……here’s hopin’ that it all goes smoothly. The charges my differ regionally……I’m on the west coast.

  115. 115 : Bryan Says:

    mauricia if you can tell me who do i need to talk to besides the first i talked to you did mention you had to go higher up besides front line people i would greatly be thank ful for other information

  116. 116 : Karola Says:

    I have been watching Korean tv dramas ever since I discovereded them accidentally, at the end of the day it was the time I most enjoyed. Watching KBS World dramas, free of commercials, has been an exciting experience as well, I have learned so much about Korean customs, traditions and their history and gotten to admire everything Korean, even though I am half Hispanic and half Anglo, I really admire the quality of the tv series, the actors, the stories and the good values they promote. I can’t really watch American television, it’s very bad, and I can’t stand how come we have to pay so much money, for the tv stations to bombard us with commercials.
    2 days ago Dish Network stopped providing KBS and I feel abandoned, like my family has left me. Why can’t we enjoy in peace our little pleasures in life? Why is there always something going wrong? How can Dish leave with out a warning?

  117. 117 : mauricia Says:

    GOOD NEWS! Okay, here go (especially Bryan). sorry I couldn’t get back to you sooner.

    I am waiting for DIRECT TV to connect my new service. The “new” KBS WORLD channel # will be: 2082.

    If you contact DIRECT TV, the customer reps will have that info. Soooooo… you won’t have to go through all the trauma I had to, to get this information.

    Good Luck….

    Everyone else that still has KBS, please keep those updates coming regarding the end of this drama.

    Thx 🙂

  118. 118 : sharon davis Says:

    I too switched to DirectTV so I could get KBS. I can’t get until the 14th and it actually is cheaper. Dish TV offered me $45 off my bill for a year to stay with them but I said oh no I want my KBS.
    I can’t find a web channel to watch this show though. I saw up to #113 but have not been able to find where I can watch.
    Dish was to disconnect on 9th but did on 5th

  119. 119 : Richard Piper Says:

    We changed from cable TV to Dish for the sole purpose of being able to view KBS TV. About 75% of the time we watch KBS. We like to relax by watching the Korean historical movies and also shows like Sam Saengi. I understand companies have to negotiate but to give three day notice of termination is too short of a leeway. Advance warning of a month should have been given to give people a chance to change and make arrangements. The three day warning became 3 hours and the KBS plug was pulled. That is a shabby way to treat customers. Do as you say and give advance warning. I know it is just a show but having seen 116 shows and not the end does not make me a happy camper. This is one of the few TV shows that I watch. Where is John Wayne when we need him? Some of these pilgrims just do not get the idea that they have put a burr beneath the saddles of a lot of people.

  120. 120 : Gayle Says:

    Just to let everyone know, on the Soompi site there are very detailed summaries of the final episodes.

  121. 121 : alicia Says:

    I too loved KBS..and had Dish for this reason… I called and shared my frustration and they offered a $5 a month discount for three months. I found a link that has the episodes I didn’t get to watch with no subtitles…and I couldn’t access the last one. Not happy with Dish!

  122. 122 : mauricia Says:

    Got DIRECT TV installed on Sat 8/10….I didn’t miss to much programming, and if I have counted correctly, I may even get see episode 120 (last one). The KBS feed is the same as always (I know what time everything comes on that I watch).

    I subscribed to the Korean Package and now get MBC & SBS + a whole lot more channels (12 in all)……..and MBC & SBS dramas DO HAVE ENGLISH SUBTITLES (Yeah!!!….). Talk shows etc…do not have English subtitles, but that’s okay with. I can get that from the KBS channel.

    Yes DISH pulled the plug with next to no warning, but I think in the long run, they did me a favor….I’m much happier with the programming from DIRECT!

  123. 123 : mauricia Says:

    Just saw the last episode (120). Twisted as usual for a TV-Novel.

    1) DRs Bong & Hwang are both dead (didn’t get to see the grandchild). Samseagi runs the clinic now.
    2) Samsaengi & Dongwu are married and have a baby together.
    3)Guemko & Jiseong got back together.
    4) Samseangi’s brother married Jiseong’s cousin and they have a child that looks to about 4 or 5 years old. The brother also works as a salesman in Dongwu’s company. The little sister is now a singer and seems like she will be together with the record store owner. the mother is into farming and the aunt is now a writer. The housekeeper is still with Samseangi & Dongwu.
    5) The couple that work in Dr Bongs clinic got married and she was VERY pregnant.

    Everyone was all happy and forgiving. No mention of Mr. Sa. Don’t know what happened to him.

    This might be the last TV novel for me. The writers are TWISTED!!! and I cant’ take it anymore.

  124. 124 : Will L Says:

    LOL Mauricia. Most K-dramas end abruptly without much cathartic satisfaction or justice. Besides the whole “wrap it up episode after 1 or 5 years later”, I think overall it was a decent ending to an awesome drama. The plot twists made things really unpredictable until Mr. Sa committed suicide. I watched Cheer Up Mr. Kim and Moon and Stars for You, before this, and those two were complete wastes of time, compared to this one. From the compelling opening episodes of switching the babies and the Shaman lady, to the growing up of girls that should have had opposite fates, I was pretty much hooked. I haven’t seen ep. 120 yet (comes on today on KBS World in Hawaii – we have Time Warner) but I look forward to the sunshine ending. The rest of it was worthwhile. I really thought the actor that played Mr. Sa did a great job. He portrayed how evil a person could be (I truly hated him LOL), but then he was able to nuance that with a flawed human side who only wanted what was best for his daughter (and how he himself was screwed by Samsaengi’s grandmother). The drama portrayed the conflicts and flaws of humanity very well. Hong Ah Reum played Samsaengi very well. It was nice casting overall. The kids in the early episodes were just great. The kids and the adults they turned into was for the most part believable. A good one! Watch it.

    FYI, like many of you, I was disappointed when dish dropped KBS. I just signed up with Direct TV which offers a Korean package that includes KBS and SBC. Negotiations with KBS have not come up yet with Direct TV, so I’ve heard, so whether they will continue to carry KBS is not certain.

    I signed a 2 year contract that includes a basic package and a Korean add-on. Right now they are not charging for installation, activation or satellite equipment. First year is half the price of the second year. Hope this is helpful to all the Korean addicts.

    not happy with Dish…i miss the last episodes of samsaengi but i’ll be damned if I sign up with direct tv…they are good on the first year of service then after that the ass fuckin is ON..i’ll just do without the KBS for now till Dish will get the head straight… if not i’ll just get the DVD’s of korean dramas i would like to watch!!!

  127. 127 : victoria Says:

    I will not switch to Direct TV. The service is terrible, and trying to find channels is daunting. Not to be political, but Direct TV is owned by Murdoch who is not a very honest or ethical person. The reasons are the same as to why I don’t watch Fox News.

    But as least I know the ending. I can get many programs for free on digital TV without any cost except buying a good set and antenna.

  128. 128 : mauricia Says:

    I know about the tiered pricing for DIRECT, but its still cheaper that what I was paying DISH. At least I have a year to find an alternative (if necessary), which is 1000 times more notice that what DISH gave us.

    I’ve been unsuccessful in watching dramas on line or through links. 8 times out of 10 I always get horrible viruses and have to take my computer in for service. And, buying DVDs is not an option for me….my house would be filled to the brim ’em.

    But good luck to those that can do it.. Will see your comments on the next TV Novel (if I decide to watch it). 🙂

    It’s funny how the “conversation” went from “Samsaengi” to television providers; yet… no mention of Comcast. Comcast substriber in the San Francisco Bay area get their fill of Korean dramas on two stations for free. Yet, the Seattle area subscribers have to pay $15.00 a month. Figure that out; but, I would rather have to pay than to watch the shows on a small computer screen. For the person who wondered what happened to Mr. Sa., I think Episode 18 showed that we was so traumatized by accidentally shooting Geumok that he took wine to the location where he poisoned Samsaengi’s “other father”… The wine, of course was laced with poison… he was shown face up on the mound where the gravesite was. Then, the drama went on… I actually enjoyed the way the writers “tied up all the loose ends” and made a wonderful ending to the story…. Jiseon ended up with Geumok(after all they have always been childhood sweethearts), Dongwu and Samsaengi getting married and having a daughter. I specially enjoyed the birthday celebration of their one year old daughter where they showed the tradition of having their child pick an instrument which would show what she may grow up to be. The explanations as to how the “sisters” ended up with their “mates”… made sense. I would rather watch Korean dramas where there is an ending and conclusion even if it drags to 120 episodes than watch an American drama that goes on for years and years! And, when the drama is cancelled, you will never know how the story ended. I especially enjoyed the way this drama ended because it was a happy ending… people were smiling even “those who came back for the ending”(the ones who died in the process of the story… Dr. Bong, the weird doctor, Mr. Sa, “other father”)…. and the know that the little sister became a star and she sang the show’s theme song! wonderful job!

  130. 130 : mauricia Says:

    Thanks for letting me know how Mr. Sa died. How did he accidentally shot Geumok? How did Drs Hwang and Bong die?

    I watched up to episode 115 (then no more service).. I was lucky enough to see the last episode 120.

  131. 131 : Bea Says:

    Where can I watch with English subtitles?

  132. 132 : badette Says:

    Mr. Sa had gone back to Dr. Bong’s house with his intention to shoot Dr. Bong but Geumok tried to stop him and she got shot instead… in the arm… she healed later on… went to Paris to study dress design and Jiseon went to Germany to pursue law…. You can tell Dr. Bong was going to die because of pictures he had taken of the girls with him and he wanted to have a picture of himself taken… you know… they carry the picture of the dead during a funeral? Anyway, it did not show how Bong and Hwang died…. Am glad you saw the ending…
    I am liking Eunhee.. though many probably has given up watching long dramas; but Comcast has started showing two episodes a day, which would make this one faster to finish. This time, they are going into introducing its viewers with tofu making! These daytime dramas have taught me rice wine making”makeoli”, hand dyed silk and hanbok, oriental medicine and herbs…
    Can’t wait until the night time drama “Good Doctor” comes up… with Joo Woon… it should be interesting. Can’t stand Yerin in the drama “Twin of Two Sisters”…. she is so wicked! to boot… her mother is too!

  133. 133 : Bryan Says:

    can any one tell me where i can watch the episodes on the net i was watching until dish pulled the plug they can say it was to help with the cost all they was helping was them selfs not the public

  134. 134 : mauricia Says:

    Thanks Badette…for telling me what happened 🙂

  135. 135 : bea Says:

    Does Dr.Bong find out that Samsaengi is his natural daughter? And does she also realize Dr. Bong is her natural dad.

  136. 136 : bea Says:

  137. 137 : I love all soap operas Says:

    I have optimum cable and this drama comes on 5 days a week and its still not enough! I’m not patient, lol. We are only up to ep 62 and this is the second tv novel i’m watching. I saw a little of my sister drama, and they all seem to have unsatisfying endings (for me). That may be my American sensibilities, but I’ve watch loads of Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese dramas and these tv novels are the only ones with such horrible endings that are supposed to be happy. For me the point of watching dramas is so good wins and true love prevails (unless based on historical fact). Everything leading up to the end I love the tantalizing story, the evil/hateful characters and the naïve ingénue. I just don’t see how they can be happy settling for second best (Dongwu or the non brother character in love my love) and I don’t believe their love for 2nd choice could be as satisfying.

    PS some one recommended a drama called a hundred years inheritance, I’ve seen it and love it also. That was a satisfying ending!

  138. 138 : ILKD Says:

    Just finished watching episode 95. Samsangi confirms her suspicion that she is the biological daughter of Dr. Bong and that the two girls were switched.

  139. 139 : ILKD Says:

    This drama has about 13 episodes left on WMBC in the New York City area. I think anyone, in any part of the world, should be able to watch the remaining episodes of this drama for free on the Internet with english subtitles. Here is how:

    Sign up for a 30-day free trial on http://www.aereo.com. Select New York City (NYC) as your location and tune into WMBC. I hope this information helps someone.

  140. 140 : Deborah Says:

    I hated this drama, although interesting. I find unrealistic the end. the bad make life impossible for others but in the end all form a family. in real life if such a thing happens, it would be realy unfair. what to do about the suffering, abuse, and other, about the time lost ? on the other hand, I must admit that sometimes in real life things go really like that, hence my frustration

    p.s.: Mr Sa don’t died but remain familly with Mr Song at the end. sad right?!

  141. 141 : Deborah Says:

    Mr Sa died in the end. sorry, my mistake 😀

  142. 142 : elvani Says:

    The drama is so long, the plot is quote inserting though.
    I’m happy with the ending:
    Dongwu and Samseng got married and had a daughter together ( yay, finally… )
    Geum-ok and Ji-sung got back together, too.

    Geum-ok doesn’t deserve a bad ending because she saved Ji-sung and did the same thing to Dr. Bong by risking her life! It’s good to see her and Ji-sung were finally back again, Ji-sung has loved her from the beginning and it was just a misunderstood that made him dislikes her. His parent let them be together is easy to understand, she saved him, and they have realized that their son’s happiness is important ( and none of them or us want to see Ji-sung spends his life one-sided loving Samseng like Dr..Hwang or trying to steal her from Dongwu )
    Mr.Sa died because he was a bad man, anyway.

    I’m satisfied with the ending except for this detail: they didn’t show any scene from Samseng and Dongwu’s wedding and the didn’t share any kiss for the entire drama ( while Samseng has shared a kiss with Ji-sung ), she should have said she loved Dongwu at least once ( not accepting to marry him because he always saved her ), the writers should have had some scenes like that, instead of a bunch of stupid episodes about Samseng and Ji-sung were together.

    The relationships between the four of them were complicated and sometimes annoying ( when Samseng was with Ji-sung and made the other two sad for many episodes really made me rate the drama 2.5/5 )
    1. Samseng: Dongwu- former friend, officially spouse
    Geum-ok – good friend
    Ji-sung – former crush, former romantic interest ( or boyfriend ), currently friend
    2.Dongwu: Samseng – former best friend, former crush, former romantic interest, officially spouse
    Geum-ok – friend
    Ji-sung – former enemy, currently friend
    3.Geum-ok: Samseng – former enemy, currently good friend
    Dongwu – friend
    Ji-Sung – boyfriend then ex then boyfriend again
    4.Ji-sung: Samseng – former crush, former romantic interest ( or girlfriend ), currently friend
    DongWu – former enemy, friend
    Geum-ok – girlfriend then ex then girlfriend again
