Oh My Lady: Episode 3
by | March 29, 2010 | 55 Comments

Generally I don’t have a problem buying Choi Siwon playing a 28-year-old in this role — he can look older than his age and he’s dressed like a grown-up — but in this shot (from a fantasy sequence, no worries about additional kiddos showing up unannounced) he positively looks like a high schooler. Until he strips that shirt off and bares his choco abs, of course — and this drama sure doesn’t skimp on showing off his physique. Not that I’m complaining.

SONG OF THE DAY

Oh My Lady OST – “못났죠” (Aren’t I stupid?). The soundtrack is generally upbeat but this is my favorite track, used in more subtle scenes. It reminds me of God of Study‘s “Because I’m Weary” in that it’s an unexpected but nice break from the lightness. [ Download ]

EPISODE 3 RECAP

Min-woo gets stuck taking pictures with the two schoolgirls, who are not from Seoul and therefore easily excited at the idea of running into celebrities. Min-woo takes advantage of their interest in other stars by pointing them off into the distance and saying that Kang Dong-won, Hyun Bin, and some other big names all live in the same neighborhood.

Having rid himself of them, he turns back to look for his daughter… but finds her gone. Even though he was thinking of ditching her just a few minutes prior, I have to think he’s got a heart (or at least a shred of one) because his first reaction is fear. Two seconds later that turns to relief when he sees Ye-eun sitting quietly nearby. He can’t be ALL bad if he’s relieved to find her, right?

Min-woo brings the girl back home and fields a call from his manager Yoon-seok, who finds Min-woo’s behavior suspicious and asks if he’s gotten into trouble again. Min-woo hesitates, then answers no.

He gets bad news from his friend Tae-gu, who informs him that nobody knows where to find Yeon-hee. Without any way to contact her, Min-woo will have to be stuck with the girl a while longer.

As Min-woo gulps water out of frustration, he sees the note that Kae-hwa has left on his fridge: “If you get angry, don’t just drink water but call me if you have trouble.” Irritated with Kae-hwa (and also the fact that she knew him well enough to predict his behavior), he rips up the note and tosses it in the trash.

He also finds Kae-hwa’s proposal, which contains a Jerry Maguire-inspired memo about huge agencies not caring about their stars, and only seeing them as moneymakers. She has also made note of the fact that Min-woo tends to get restless when he is asked about his acting ability and often shakes his leg in interviews. This indicates that he may be conscious of his lack, despite his overall confidence as a star. Again, Min-woo’s disgruntled to have Kae-hwa acting like she knows him.

All these thoughts spin him off into a fantasy scenario where he’s facing a press conference alone when he announces the existence of a child. The reporters pelt him with eggs and scorn for his irresponsible outlook (he admits he has a child but doesn’t want to be a father), and soon the news is flooded with stories digging into his personal life. Eventually he has to repent and finds himself relegated to serving drinks at a cafe and accepting tips from patrons to feed his kids — yes, in his nightmare scenario, he’s saddled with two additional crying babies.

That sound brings him back to the present, because Ye-eun won’t stop crying. He tries to hush her, and a neighbor rings his doorbell to ask about the crying noise (he assumes it’s coming from next door and tells Min-woo he’ll stop it). Without any other ideas, he grabs the ripped note from the trash and pieces it back together to find Kae-hwa’s phone number.

Kae-hwa is cautiously optimistic about the call, but also wary. Not wanting to get her hopes up only to have Min-woo renege on his promise, she declines to step inside his place until he first signs a contract. It’s not the official one for the musical production, merely a short one promising to accept the musical role. With a sigh, Min-woo agrees to sign the official contract later today.

He leaves her to take care of Ye-eun, and Kae-hwa rejoices to realize she’s going to get her office job after all. Min-woo is much less thrilled and works out his frustrations at the gym. This is our first of several sweaty/muscley Siwon shots this episode.


Shi-joon has no idea his marriage is facing trouble but discovers this because of his wife Jung-ah’s carelessness. As soon as he leaves home for work, she gets on the phone with her boyfriend. Shi-joon turns back to retrieve some forgotten documents, which is when he hears Jung-ah speaking affectionately and saying, “I love you, too.”

It’s quite a blow, and Shi-joon reacts with shock and anger. Half in a daze, he follows her as she leaves and tails behind her car in his own. He is unfortunately cut off by traffic and has to abandon his chase.

Kae-hwa drops off Ye-eun with her friend Bok-nim, who’s a pediatrician, before heading to meet Min-woo and The Show Company to work out contract details. She’s worried because she can’t get a hold of him on the phone and he’s enough of a flake that she is on edge that he might not show, so when he does arrive, she grabs him in a sudden hug. The look on his face is pretty telling (it practically reads, “Crazy ajumma alert! Back away slowly”).

Kae-hwa’s quite proud of herself for securing Min-woo’s cooperation, and she introduces him to the other employees, Jin-ho and Jae-hee. However, it soon becomes clear that Min-woo and Shi-joon already know each other, from the way they talk.

(I get a kick out of the total Zoolander face Siwon’s working in the pic below. How apt, given his pretty pretty face and his diva personality. Blue Steel forever!)

As before, the men’s conversation takes on subtly challenging undertones, as both men banter back and forth like they’re jockeying for power. Shi-joon didn’t think Min-woo would agree, based on his response at their last meeting, so Min-woo gets up, saying he can always just leave. Kae-hwa jumps in and quickly fabricates, “He said he felt the need for a new challenge.”

Shi-joon needs Min-woo much more than the other way around, but he’s still not the type of guy to fawn over someone to flatter their vanity. Quite the contrary. Therefore he says coolly that they didn’t strictly want Min-woo; they just needed a star. Min-woo understands that Shi-joon is calling him a mere star but not an actor, and answers that in that case, the company should treat him like a star.

Despite this exchange, both sides proceed with the agreement, and Kae-hwa sees Min-woo out. She tries to talk to him about Ye-eun, but Min-woo says impatiently that he doesn’t care to hear about her.

Shi-joon reads over Kae-hwa’s proposal to Min-woo, and wonders at Min-woo’s change of heart. He knows him well enough to know that casting him was a long shot — he’s immature, arrogant, and avoids hard work. Does Kae-hwa have some secret deal with him? Diplomatically, Kae-hwa answers that he’s probably just maturing.

In any case, Shi-joon agrees that this worked out well and is a good opportunity for everyone. He entrusts her with the task of making sure things run smoothly, and has a workspace set up for her. She has earned her job, as promised.

The news soon spreads about Min-woo’s casting in the musical, and one man who is not happy about his is Eom Dae-young, Shi-joon’s rival musical producer. Producer Eom blusters that Min-woo’s a poor choice as a pretty boy star (read: not true actor), and while Shi-joon may agree personally, he isn’t going to admit that to him and says that there’s nothing wrong with using a pretty boy actor if he’s right for the part. Producer Eom reminds him that Min-woo’s famous for his horrible acting, so Shi-joon answers that a skilled producer can draw out the actor’s talent.

Shi-joon has won this round fairly easily, but his good mood takes a hit when he spies his wife walking out of the restaurant, arm in arm with another man. He runs out after them, but their car roars off before he can reach them.

Hit hard by this shock, Shi-joon broods and seeks out some solo time on the roof of his office building. Overcome with anger, he punches the wall, and seriously, this is the most emotion I’ve seen from actor Lee Hyun-woo since… ever?

Kae-hwa checks in with Min-ji at lunchtime, and her daughter’s answers are pretty upsetting. Hearing that Min-ji was left home alone to eat ramen, she instructs her to come out to meet her immediately, and buys her lunch.

As they eat, Kae-hwa tells Min-ji that she’s got a new job now, working with that famous star Sung Min-woo. Min-ji isn’t impressed: “I don’t really like Sung Min-woo. He’s sleazy and cocky.” (Kae-hwa is pleased that her daughter has good taste.)

After lunch, she calls her ex, Byung-hak, and lets him have it. How could he leave a child at home alone for three days to go off to a spa for a vacation with his new wife? Byung-hak doesn’t think what he did was so bad and even tries to wheedle Kae-hwa into talking to his father for him. Byung-hak doesn’t want to work for him anymore and Dad’s always liked Kae-hwa, so he’ll listen to her. This conversation tells us a few things: Byung-hak is immature, irresponsible, and wussy.

So it is that Shi-joon looks up from his brooding to see Kae-hwa at the other side of the roof, strangling a broom as though it’s her husband and muttering things like “Jerk! Cheater!” His treatment of Min-ji is what unleashed the temper but now she’s venting old grievances — she’d put up with his immaturity and other faults, but cheating was the one thing he really shouldn’t have done. She declares that she will turn her life around, earn money, send Min-ji to school abroad, “and meet a man a hundred times better than you and remarry!”

She calms herself and heads back, which is when she sees Shi-joon. Embarrassed, she asks if he heard. His denial is cute, because it’s obvious he did:

Kae-hwa: “Did you… by any chance hear?”
Shi-joon: “No.”
Kae-hwa: “What didn’t you hear?”
Shi-joon: “Everything.”

It’s then that she notices his bleeding hand, but it’s clear he doesn’t want to talk about it so she leaves him to his privacy.

Manager Yoon-seok finds Min-woo at the gym, pissed off, to confront him about his musical role. Doesn’t he know that signing a contract without his management’s approval is a breach of contract? Min-woo points out that Yoon-seok signs for him all the time.

Yoon-seok asks if he’s being forced to do it, not buying Min-woo’s vague answer that he just likes the project. After all, he’s a guy who never even bothers reading the script. However, given Min-woo’s sensitivity about his acting, and his recent disillusionment with Yoon-seok’s tactics, the comment rankles. (It may be true that he sucks at acting, but he’s quite self-conscious about it, so pointing it out makes him defensive.)

This point is highlighted one more time when the spa employee expresses surprise at Min-woo’s plans to read. With boyish defensiveness, he grumbles that he can read scripts if he wants to — only, he doesn’t even get two lines into the script before he starts dozing.

When Kae-hwa picks up Ye-eun, Bok-nim tells her that the girl may not be able to talk for a while and needs further treatment with a specialist. It’s not that she is choosing not to speak, but that emotional shock has caused her to lose her ability to talk entirely.

This is big news, so Kae-hwa calls Min-woo to schedule a time to talk. Uninterested in anything she might have to say, he refuses to come to the hospital to meet her and hangs up on her, entering her into his phone as “meddler.”

So Kae-hwa comes to the spa instead, where he’s getting a massage — and this drama just keeps giving us excuses to see him half-naked, doesn’t it?

Contrary to her grave demeanor, his response to the news is, “So?” She urges him to be a real father to Ye-eun, because the most important element in recovering her speech is to feel love and support from her parents. Selfish as ever, Min-woo counters that he’s the one who’s to be pitied — does she even know how much is life has been turned upside down because of the kid?

Kae-hwa is not impressed with his answer, and glares. She maintains that they must help Ye-un, and he won’t be able to find her mother anyway until she speaks again.

As they leave the spa, Min-woo grabs Kae-hwa aside and tells her furtively, “Let’s just leave her somewhere.” Since the girl can’t talk, nobody will be able to trace her to them.

Quite rightly, Kae-hwa kicks him. (He balks, “Do you know how much this body’s worth?” She retorts, “I don’t know about your body, but your brain isn’t even worth a penny!”) She questions his sense of decency, accusing him of not having any, and then adds in a dig: “That’s why your acting is how it is.”

Ah, now that’s the way to his heart! (Or his wounded ego.) Min-woo is offended at her comment that his acting sucks because he lacks basic human character, and without that he’ll never be able to act well.

Now that she’s pricked his weak spot, he pricks hers by grumbling that she’s tiresome, and her husband must have tired of her. Hurt at that low blow, Kae-hwa tells him furiously that fine, she will step aside, since he finds her so meddlesome. Min-woo reminds her that if she backs out and breaks their contract, then he’s also going to back out of the musical.

Angrily, she declares, “I won’t work with a lowlife like you either!” and storms off.

Now we meet Yura, who is flying back to Korea from the U.S. to meet her boyfriend. One guess who that is.

Meanwhile, Min-woo hears about Yeon-hee’s whereabouts, but it’s not good news. She has married and moved to the U.S., and tied up all her loose ends in Korea to embark on a new life. I guess she thought a child was a loose end.

Not knowing the full story, Tae-gu thinks this is good, because he was afraid Yeon-hee would try to blackmail Min-woo — maybe threaten him with a sex video, or suicide threats. Instead, she left a simple message for him: “Sorry and thank you. Take care. I leave everything to you.”

Kae-hwa brings Ye-eun home and sings her to sleep, which is the sight that greets Min-woo upon his arrival. He watches the two for a moment, and a thought comes to him. Quietly, he leaves the two and waits for Kae-hwa in the living room. The wineglasses show that he’s approaching this as a truce, and he invites her to sit down for a chat.

Kae-hwa’s still a little stiff after their earlier argument and keeps her distance. When he comments at the way she doesn’t treat him differently even though he’s famous, she scoffs, “People are all the same. What’s different if you’re famous?”

With a smile and a conciliatory tone, Min-woo suggests that they try to get along from now on, and pours her a glass of wine. He explains that he was completely taken off-guard when Ye-eun showed up, and that’s why he said all those ridiculous things — he didn’t really mean them.

Kae-hwa loosens up at his warm demeanor and his explanation, and accepts the drink. There’s also a brief moment where she looks at him in a different light — sensing a brief attraction — which unsettles her.

Frankly, seeing Min-woo acting so nice has ME wound up with suspense, because I don’t believe for a second that he’s actually being nice for the sake of being nice. And sure enough, the reason for his friendly overture becomes apparent as he prepares to get to his main point.

Adding tension to the moment is the arrival of Yura, who steps out of the elevator and makes her way toward Min-woo’s door. Clearly he is the boyfriend she spoke of, and she pauses in front of the door to prepare herself…

…while Kae-hwa waits expectantly as Min-woo says, “It’s hard for me to say this, but… please be Ye-eun’s mother.”

And she spits her wine all over his face, just as Yura reaches to ring the doorbell.

 
COMMENTS

I don’t feel an emotional connection to this drama yet, in that everything is light and quick and entertaining without making much of an emotional statement yet. This isn’t to say that it’ll never happen, because we’re still pretty early in the run, although I’ve definitely seen plenty where that connection was there from the start.

On the positive end of things, Oh My Lady is very easy to watch, and there’s potential for it to get more interesting. I’m still in it to see how Chae Rim and Choi Siwon’s budding relationship will evolve, because right now they’ve got the bickering stuff down but Min-woo is far from deserving Kae-hwa, or even the audience’s sympathies. I like that he’s selfish and irritable — just as Kim Ji-hoon was so easy to dislike until about six episodes into Wish Upon a Star — and I’m looking forward to the change. I just hope that the romantic chemistry is credible.

But interestingly enough, I was most surprised with Lee Hyun-woo in this episode. Granted, I haven’t seen everything he’s done but I have seen several dramas with him so far, and he has always been such a bland, wooden actor playing the same kind of cold professional character. But suddenly, he’s emoting! I wouldn’t call it brilliant emoting, but just seeing him portraying any sort of anger, hurt, pain, and frustration was a nice surprise. I guess this goes to show you can never rule someone out — not when he finally shows some acting growth at the ripe age of 44!

    I was just checking out what this drama is about by reading this recap quickly, but…..STOP in the middle of it…Oh MY….nice recap pix, hehe (the spa pix) :P

  2. Steph

    You’re right about his half-naked shots… ><
    I remember first reading about Siwon's new drama from a SuJu fansite…the first thought that came into my head: "They'll take any opportunity for him to take off his shirt…"
    As always, thank you for the recap…^^V

  3. Anon

    Hahaha! I was also so surprised about LHW here. I was shocked to see him having an emotion. I can’t believe my eyes that he is capable of showing one. lols.

    Thanks for the recap JB!

  4. Kukilas

    Thanks for the speedy recap! I am enjoying this show, and its quite entertaining, plus all those gratuitous choco abs shots are quite a plus! I look forward to seeing Min Woo mature, and think it will be quite entertaining to see him develop his relationship with his daughter. I think we should be able to feel an emotional tug towards him soon.

  5. Kender

    Hahaha, I was shocked by LHW’s emoting too! Maybe this’ll be a growing experience for him. XD

    This drama is totally fanservice. Not that I’m complaining–half-naked Siwon is always good. I just hope they don’t do it so often that I get desensitized to it.

    I’m waiting for some deeper emotion from Minwoo. Siwon’s doing a fairly good job so far, but he hasn’t really been tested much yet, so I’m still undecided on his acting. So far we’ve had smug, cocky, annoyed, working-out, and frantic. I need some aaaaaaangst~ (I’m sure it’ll come. I just have to be patient.)

    I did love that murderous expression at the end, though, with the wine dripping down his face. Kae-hwa’s gonna get it~~~

    And random, but you left out the crying Ye-eun scene, where Minwoo drops the only candy he has onto the floor. That was so pathetically cute, I loved it..

  6. Abie Lee

    Did Chae Rim and LHW pair up in Dal Ja’s Spring? Or am I confusing him for another drama? Also, is the maid from Assorted Gems in this drama? And the reporter (that many people confuse for the pesky reporter from YAB) is from Accidental Couple (I think that’s the name of the drama). I’m still in awe of Siwon’s abs. They are so perfect that they don’t look real. Gone are my innocent days when i watched the Super Junior movie on the plane and had no idea who they were, though I was drooling at all of them. I’m putting this drama on my must see list, right next to finishing Assorted Gems and following Still, Marry Me on MBC America. I wish I can get SBS and KBS here as well. But this will have to do. Thanks for the recaps. I think Siwon’s kid is cuter than the kid from Heading to the Ground. They should have used the kid from Creating Destiny too. She was cute.

  7. b.m

    thank you very much

  8. stee

    This drama sounds promising :) can’t wait for more development!
    and who else thought that Shi-joon’s wife was actually meeting with her brother? that would be a typical drama move. Anyway, if not, there will probably be romantic feelings between Shi-joon and Kae-hwa in the future, because of their ability to connect through their similarities. (Though it’s obviously going to be mostly one-sided..)
    Wonder what the shock was for poor Ye-eun, and what the deal with this Yura character is. Sure hope it isn’t just another bitchy ex-girlfriend who can’t get over it and schemes up ridiculous problems the whole drama without any real reason to be there.. I really dislike it when the male lead can’t set things straight and just bears with an unwanted woman’s contrivances til the end. If the relationship is over, it’s over! but all this talk is probably too early from me, hehe.
    Thank you for the recap!

  9. Deborah

    Thanks so much JB for your speedy recap! I have been anxiously refreshing your site this whole afternoon :D
    The drama seems really interesting, I think mainly it’s because anything you write makes it easier to follow. I’m waiting for subs for eps 1-2 to be ‘officially’ released, so your recaps are a great guide! But for now, I usually skip to drool-worthy Siwon scenes (haha).

  10. 10 E

    I have to agree with you about Lee Hyun Woo ~ I’ve hated him ever since seeing him in Attic Cat and having him appear in so many of the dramas I liked always acting like a wooden stick….although I can’t say he’s doing that much better now ~ I’m really anticipating the attraction between Chae Rim and Choi Si Won ~ I’m surprised that SiWon isn’t doing so bad…

  11. 11 AB

    Thanks for the recap, JB. It seems like a nice show, I have to watch this since now. :)

  12. 12 drina from Jakarta

    It’s my pleasure to see so many half naked Shiwon,,, wkwkwkwk!!!!

  13. 13 tamu

    Thanks for the recap…. God bless you…

  14. 14 deeta

    Ew, if emoting means you can sigh, groan, and puch a wall, we’ve got so many top class actors in the world. I’m still pessimistic over Lee Hyunwoo, but at least I’m excited by Moon Junghee. She looks pretty rawr-ing!

  15. 15 LeMahMah

    All I can say is “Dang! LOVE those Abs!!!” and Your Recap Of course!!! Hey if they want to fry my senses with gratuitous half-nakkid Min-woo pictures, then Do It!! Bring On the Pain! (or Pleasure!)

    This series looks cute. So far I’m watching it more for Chae Rim and to see how she will do in this. It took me a bit to realize she was the bodyguard in a series I believe was called Powerful Opponent. I loved her in it!! Hated the guy playing the Presidnts Son but LOVED the guy playing her partner. So, even if this series turns rotten I know that her part will be acted Brillantly!

  16. 16 hjkomo

    “and this drama just keeps giving us excuses to see him half-naked, doesn’t it? “

    No complaints here. :P

    I also find it interesting that Lee Hyun Woo still gets these types of roles, whereas actors like Jung Ho Bin (40) and Ahn Gil Kang (43) and Jeon Noh Min (43) get roles of much older, paternal-type characters.

  17. 17 celestialorigin

    Wow, a super fast recap! Thanks JB as always. So far, this drama is mildly amusing. Nonetheless, the guy is such an eye candy! I never knew him till now.

  18. 18 Jun

    Park Han Byul is sooooo hot!

  19. 19 bbm

    thank you for the fast and fabulous recap as always JB…
    “and this drama just keeps giving us excuses to see him half-naked, doesn’t it? “
    like hjkomo said, no complaint here whatsoever…

    LOL at your zoolander comment…

  20. 20 Norme

    Annyeong,

    As usual great recap…JB…I am loving the flow…

  21. 21 vine789

    Nothing else to say but THANK YOU JB!

  22. 22 okdubu

    lol……… i personally think it’s too much eye-candy. or maybe it’s bc i don’t really consider half-naked siwon to be sweet?

  23. 23 müge

    I really enjoy the drama and it’s getting more excitind in each ep

  24. 24 crzycpl

    Useless fact of the day. The restaurant that KH and MJ eat at is Hanuso in Insa-dong. How do I know? I ate there nearly every day when I was in Seoul in December. LOL

    This episode seemed to drag a bit for me. Other than the numerous half naked shots of MW, I really didn’t find this episode really that interesting. I hope it picks up in tonight’s episode.

  25. 25 jossy

    Great Recap! Loving how the drama is progressing! and yes Siwon you keep sending me into spasms! ^^

  26. 26 moimoiness

    LOL!
    if they keep those half naked pictures of siwon per episode, i think i’ll be a faithful follower..hehehe
    and i’m loving how the story is turning out, but i really do hope that they’d be able to keep it interesting..
    thanks again, jb!!

  27. 27 Porcelain

    Rawr… ok so I am not the only one happy with the show of skin…

    Story is coming along just fine… just can’t wait for the day they fall in love with each other…

    Ommo… but the cheating wife… now that is not often in K-dramaland… me am excited… but hubby needs to be more affected?!

    @ 6 Abie Lee

    I can only answer one, yes, Lee Hyun Woo was also with Chae Rim in the drama, Dal Ja’s Spring. Same character too, as the stiff businessman. Though I like his character there, because he was funny reading comics. I particularly like the Candy Candy scene. That was creepy, o.O
    ———-

    I was kinda reminded by DJS too when they showed the dream sequence. But this time, instead of Dal Ja, its Min Woo.

  29. 29 reluctantbutaddicted

    Late for work, so just a quick Thank You for the recap. Particularly enjoyed the line:
    “Now we meet Yura, who is flying back to Korea from the U.S. to meet her boyfriend. One guess who that is.”

    Yep.

  30. 30 karened

    I guess I’m one of the very few who would have liked it better had they not make Siwon bare his muscles so many times within the first 3 eps.

  31. 31 cheekbones

    Thanks, JB, for a very entertaining recap…..

  32. 32 snail

    Guess I was wrong when I thought the PD is going to get stingy w/ the abs scene. Not that I’m complaining, but hope that it’s not overkill. But I LOVE the top pic!! It’s totally unexpected hehe… am waiting for your next recap :)

  33. 33 PerkyJazz

    I’m not sure I’m ready for this drama yet since I’m still obsessing over Dal Ja/Tae Bong pairing. Thanks to your recaps, though, I’m getting an idea of how it’ll be so I can slowly prepare to watch the whole thing and probably like it as much as I liked Dal Ja’s Spring.

    btw, I watched Dal Ja after reading your year-end recap so thanks a lot for a good recommendation. :)

  34. 34 lb_tmi

    @ 30 karened

    then you’re not in for a treat.. as i read somewhere that they plan on Minwoo flashing his abs in every episode because he’s got ‘em.

  35. 35 maria

    Is Siwon playing the role of a 28 years old man? WOW! He looks older, but not that old.
    Anyway… when I saw the first pic of him and the baby for a second I thought it was a picture of KangTa when he was younger.

  36. 36 danni

    Seriously, could they give Si Won any more ab shots? Not that it’s a bad thing; I remember reading that Si Won really had to work out for this role and now I guess we know why. I literally lol’d at Blue Steel forever; Si Won definitely knows how to come off as a star. I still feel a little wary about the coupling of Min Woo and Kae Hwa because at the moment, Min Woo just seems to come off as a younger version of her ex-husband so if Kae Hwa got toegether with Min Woo before he matured, it would come off as rather disappointing so I hope he matures soon. Still, I don’t totally dislike Min Woo at the moment, but just find him as an incredibly selfish and immature guy in a bad situation. Maybe it’s because his character isn’t totally one-dimensional, at least not in my opinion.

    Oh! My Lady definitely doesn’t have that emotional pull yet, but I’m holding out hope for it to eventually pull through.

  37. 37 Natalie

    Thanks so much JB’s for continuing to recap this drama! I’m really enjoying it so far, and am looking forward to the chemistry (hopefully) between the two leads!

  38. 38 chacha

    i think this drama so far is good! i just can’t deal with Chae Rim’s hairstyle for some reason & hopefully as the series progresses they’ll change her image a bit, i believe she’s wearing a wig to look matured but such a shame coz CR got a beautiful hair in all her dramas!

    thnx javabeans

  39. 39 lovin it

    thanks for the recap! oh the fanservice shots of siwon :) *swoon*

  40. 40 Deanna

    “Anyway… when I saw the first pic of him and the baby for a second I thought it was a picture of KangTa when he was younger.”

    Gosh, I didn’t realise till you mentioned it but, he really does look like a younger KangTa!

  41. 41 honest_will

    hey just watched it on wiki
    and the 3rd episode
    as JB said
    quite lite and funny
    but it doesn’t feel like anything depthy has been added
    all we know is that minwoo is a star who cant act and like to shove responsibility to other people and kae hwa is the mum who has a child and also has to take care of minwoo’s love child
    but i feel that there isn’t a lot of development in minwoo
    he is still arogant and feel like he is above everyone
    and i hope someone can set him straight
    the pace is nice but i want something meatier

    Hahahhahaha! Loved your comment about lee hyun woo finally emoting at 44!!! Some emotion from that guy at least! That makes me look more forward to watching the episode.

    OMG, I had the exact same thought about Lee Hyun-woo during that scene on the roof. Not that it was great acting or anything, but I was just so shocked to see his face almost MOVE a bit! He made an expression! His face usually looks stiff, I kinda wondered if it was botox-frozen. Nice to see him make an effort. I don’t hate him or anything, I hope this is a sign that he is improving :)

    As for Siwon, I will certainly not complain about all the abs scenes :) Hello, fan service! :) I look forward to seeing his character mature.

    I have never seen Siwon act before and I was thoroughly impressed. I nearly got goosebumps when he was yelling at the kid… either way, I’m going to continue wwatching this drama. Hope it doesn’t disappoint.

    thanks for the recap………..as always, you’re awesome….Siwon’s abs sure add to the eye candy, sure hope it doesn’t end, if it’s been the bait to get us watching, it sure worked on me, really hope it doesn’t end, those chocolate abs don’[t distract at all!!!……..can’t wait for the Chae Rim and Siwon moments……….

    Hmmm… i was watching the bloopers of Dal-Ja’s Spring last night and find Oh My Lady pretty similar – younger man, casting of both Lee Hyun-woo & Chae Rim etc. Except I cannot imagine Lee Min-ki as Min-woo. Not that I’m not enjoying this show. I’m beginning to see JB’s point of Kdrama having the tendency to rehash some themes. :)

    In an instant, I find a “Baby and Me” flashback between MinWoo carrying that baby boy on his back.

    His “Zoolander” charisma is priceless…. that was funny JB!

    MinWoo is putty in front of Yura… it gets funny.

    I finished watching ep.04… gawd, I want ep.05 right now but I gotta wait for it. Gees, a really good cliffhanger on a paternal DNA test result.

    i’m so glad ur doing recaps on this drama. I’m really enjoying it so far :)

    I wonder if the drama is taking advantage of Siwon showing his body for rating since he has a huge fanbase xD
    “Crazy ajumma alert! Back away slowly” my favorite line from the recap ^^ & the screencap just made it more funny

    LOL at the zoolander line!! god he really was doin the blue steel wasn’t he?!

    i’m enjoying this drama, despite the lack of depth at this point. i do have high hopes for it though! plus siwon is just so freakin cute :)
