    Cannot understand why after all these years (30 yrs) the Mother (Soon Ok) is still so hung up on her husband (supposedly ex husband). Why does she allow what had happened to continue to eat into here.

    And why does she still allow the husband’s mistress to continue to live with her? Looks like they both like to keep throwing barbs at each other at every opportunity they get. Is this good living? What for?

    Earlier I had my reservations (#25 kitkat) about watching this drama thinking that it would be about a bunch of scary women who would create havoc. Did watch this drama anyway and my opinion has been changed.

    The women here are scary alright, but the story the drama is telling is much more meaningful, substantial and real. This drama is the real world !

    Its story is deep and meaningful. Touching ! Riveting !

    The story touches viewers’ heart, senses and emotions. There were so many times I held my breath, glued my eyes to a scene, just being captivated by it, trying to digest the full meaning of the story it’s telling. I was stumped by the emotions of the scenes.

    The whole production crew, from the scriptwriters, directors to the whole cast of actors/actresses has done a splendid job telling the story in this drama.

    This was a very good drama but the ending was too rushed…

    kitkat Says:

    Rushed endings! Yeah, this is what I have noticed happened to most shows. It’s like it’s a disease or is a “demise ritual” which most dramas must go through before wrapping up.

    Sure is a dampener!

    If not, the production crew including the writer could be inflicted with this other “disease” – the “no brakes’ syndrome, a rather common affliction which writers do get it sometimes.

    Many a time writers do get so engrossed that they do not know when to slow down for the ending – until it is too late, and then wham bang, they step on the brakes. The result – we get a rushed “god knows what was that(?)” ending. Not exactly a great feeling.

    Personally, I had a friend who was afflicted with this “no brakes” syndrome and it cost him much. He was writing and preparing an anime for a Japanese Producer. Got so carried away with his story, did know to slow down and wrap up for the ending. Missed the dateline. The Japanese Producer was mad with him, cancelled the contract and all other potential work.

    Correction : Should read – “Did not know to slow down and wrap up for the ending.”

    Krama2014 Says:

    I watched the last two episodes on the 15th of May and I was disappointed to see how the writer or writers ended the series. If he or she or them took time to write the first 23 episodes, I think the last episode should be given more time or at least an equal time.

    Can someone explain the ending? Is it just me or what, what happened to the granddaughter loveline? hanging?

    Sunflower Says:

    I think this family drama was good. It shown about daily problem. But I wonder about jeong ma ri, lee roo ong, lee do jin love story. I support ma ri and lee do jin but it was little bit disappointed because jeong ma ri chose lee roo ong. I think lee roo ong is just handsome, but no chemistry and no charismatic. Lee do jin is more attractive, smarter, and he has chemistry with jeong ma ri.
