Oh My Lady: Episode 5
by | April 6, 2010 | 103 Comments

Sing it, sista!

In the first four episodes, Oh My Lady hadn’t really wowed me, though it has been cute. Episode 5 ups the game and starts the bonding between Chae Rim and Choi Siwon in earnest, which revs my interest and adds some excitement.

Min-woo is furious with Kae-hwa for getting his DNA tested behind his back. Now he knows what she was doing with his toothbrush, and calls her a “scary ajumma,” which is a term he’s used a few times. It’s kind of true, because she seems like a harmless, clueless ajumma on the outside, but when push comes to shove she gets the job done. (Maybe that’s not such a surprise: ajummas get shit DONE, yo! But she’s got a hidden sly streak, that one.)

He assumes she must be trying to blackmail him using the DNA information and tells her to get lost — she and the girl both. Kae-hwa argues that she’s just trying to get him to accept his daughter, and asks why that idea has him so angry.

Her question shuts him up — there’s clearly more there, but he’s not willing to share — and Min-woo leaves the room while she’s still midsentence.

He broods in his room, taking a frustrated look at the test results crumpled in his hand — they’re positive. (Well, more than 99% probability, which is as good as positive.)

In the morning, he gets up to go for a swim, because this drama has a Topless Siwon Quota to meet and no time to waste! Good thing Min-woo has such accommodating hobbies, eh? Pretty soon they’ll be running out of excuses to get him bare-chested. I can think of a few more activities he can try, like beach volleyball, or bodybuilding, or surfing. Or sumo wrestling.

In a rush, Kae-hwa has difficulty hailing a taxi and therefore enlists Min-woo as her driver. You can tell he’s softening toward her despite his angry outburst last night because he doesn’t really protest. Pressed for time, Kae-hwa even mutters at his slowness, “What kind of man drives so timidly?” She may have well just insulted his penis size because Min-woo immediately picks up the gauntlet and floors the accelerator, weaving in and out of traffic.

The pesky reporter who keeps lurking around Min-woo spies him driving off with a woman in the car, and automatically assumes that Min-woo is trying to shake him off his tail. Alas, gets stuck at a light and has to give up the chase.

The reason for Kae-hwa’s hurry is to get to her ex-husband’s house before Min-ji leaves, so she can give her the kimbap she made for her class picnic. Min-ji cries that Dad forced her to drink soy milk, which makes her throw up. Kae-hwa tries to be a good mom even though this angers her, and makes an excuse for Dad.

However, once Min-ji leaves she can’t hide her reaction. Min-woo sees that she’s on the verge of tears and feels sorry for her, though he covers up his concern.

In the car, she calls her ex-husband to let her displeasure known — can’t he just for a short while try to be a good dad? It makes her sorry to Min-ji for not being able to give her a better father.

Next, she takes it out on Min-woo: “Why the hell are dads like that? Why are you all so irresponsible and neglectful?”

Min-woo’s not busy today, so Kae-hwa hands him his script and tells him to study it. He’s like a reluctant teenager and she’s like his gently prodding mother, which is a thought that should make their relationship dynamics rather interesting to watch.

Kae-hwa drops Ye-eun off for her daycare, where Bok-nim urges her to bring Min-woo around, and quickly. Having gotten her professional duty out of the way, she then oohs over Min-woo’s choco abs.

At the office, the other two managers are pleased to hear that Min-woo has come back to the musical, and both offer to rearrange their schedules to escort Min-woo to his first dance rehearsal. Instead, Shi-joon assigns that task to Kae-hwa, which is a bit of a surprise. They also notice that Kae-hwa is getting along with Shi-joon. Jin-ho takes this in stride, but Jae-hee (the uppity woman) finds it a little threatening. Just wait till they become love interests, honey!

Kae-hwa has a hard time trying to urge Min-woo to make it to rehearsal, as he would rather spend the day in bed. She tries pestering, then sweet-talking, to win his compliance. But Min-woo will not be moved by nagging or flattery, and declines with his usual careless demeanor. Kae-hwa exclaims that he’s so frustrating that she wants to cry — so he latches on to that and takes her literally, challenging her to go ahead and cry, then. In fact, if she can produce real tears within ten seconds, he’ll go.

He even makes a big show of getting out his phone to engage the stopwatch and counts down, smug to have outmaneuvered her.

Only, when he looks up at her, Kae-hwa’s eyes are brimming with tears and she’s got a wounded look on her face. Min-woo is chastened at the thought that he actually did hurt her feelings for real, and quietly agrees to go, putting up no further resistance.

(Kae-hwa’s proven herself to be pretty resourceful so I wonder if the crying was another of the tricks up her sleeve, or if this just happened to come in handy. I like to think she’s a better actor than the actor and gave him a taste of his own medicine. Of course, with Min-woo that medicine isn’t very effective to begin with.)

By the time they arrive at the dance studio, Kae-hwa’s perfectly chipper. She looks admiringly at Jung-ah, who is practicing alone in a studio, and introduces herself as an employee of The Show Company. As she doesn’t know that this is her boss’s wife, she merely thinks Jung-ah is a professional contact, and Jung-ah doesn’t correct her.

Kae-hwa leaves the building, but when she turns back to drop off Min-woo’s script, she catches a glimpse of Jung-ah and her Other Man, who are getting cozy in a spare moment. She doesn’t make much of this, and quietly slips away.

It isn’t until she hears from Jae-hee that the choreographer is Shi-joon’s wife that the significance of the scene hits her, and this knowledge weighs on her. For instance, when she accompanies Shi-joon on some business, she eyes him warily and doesn’t know how to act with this knowledge on her conscience.

They also run into Shi-joon’s rival, Producer Eom, who never can resist a chance to make digs at Shi-joon and The Show Company. Kae-hwa — who can never resist sticking up for what she believes in — fires back a defense, prompting Eom to mock her as well as their star Min-woo, he of the notoriously noxious acting talents.

Eom, by the way, is in business with Kae-hwa’s ex-husband Byung-hak, who is a successful businessman and investor. The two get down to some schmoozing, and between Eom’s sleaziness and Byung-hak’s smugness, this really is a match made in producer heaven.

Min-woo’s rehearsal goes pretty well, and is watched by an eager audience of dancers, who are excited to have such a big star in their midst. Jung-ah is pleased with the rehearsal, and Min-woo feels pretty good about himself, too. Kae-hwa calls to check upon him, whereupon he requests snacks. Then Yura calls, and he invites her to drop by the studio.

Therefore, Yura and Kae-hwa arrive in the neighborhood at the same time. Yura wrinkles her nose at Kae-hwa’s prepared kimbap, having brought a pretty cake herself, and whines over a tiny run in her stocking. Being the princess that she is, she has no problem requesting that Kae-hwa buy her a new pair, as though Kae-hwa is her maid.

Kae-hwa finds the request a bit much, but agrees anyway and leaves the kimbap with Yura before heading off.

When Yura arrives, a few of the other dancers beeline for the kimbap and enthusiastically dig in. Yura had been expecting her offering to be the bigger hit, but she’s not about to claim it now, so she acts like she made the food and surreptitiously hides the cake she bought. Min-woo is proud of her for the gesture, too, because it reflects well on him. Happy to take the credit and run, Yura leaves before Kae-hwa returns.

Thankfully, this misunderstanding doesn’t drag on too long (and thereby endanger my blood pressure), because when Kae-hwa comments on the kimbap, Min-woo realizes she made it. He doesn’t tell her about the mix-up, but he smiles a bit to hear the truth.

The good mood is not to last long, because while Min-woo changes clothes, he overhears the conversation between two other dancers, who must be really dumb to talk about Min-woo behind his back when he’s still around. Even the guy who had flattered Min-woo to his face now grumbles about him — Jung-ah had praised Min-woo, but she was just giving him some lip service since they all know how harsh she usually is. They sneer at Min-woo for being gullible to believe her praise, and describe his dancing style as nightclub stuff (read: cheap and untrained). The thing is, they’re not exactly wrong, which is perhaps why he’s so bothered to hear their comments.

Kae-hwa also overhears the conversation, so when Min-woo storms out of the dressing room wearing a dark expression, she knows he must have heard.

In the car, she tries to lift his spirits with a few reassuring words, not addressing the locker room conversation directly. Would he like a trip to the spa to relax him?

He remains silent and grim, so Kae-hwa tries a different tactic. Suggesting that she needs a laugh to keep from falling asleep, she gives herself the challenge of making Min-woo laugh within ten seconds. With that, she starts to sing loudly — and very badly, in an off-key voice, with exaggerated embellishments. (The song is Wax’s “Oppa” — which is already rather silly to begin with.)

Despite the dark mood, Min-woo has to force himself to keep his face stoic at her ridiculous antics, and coughs to cover up his laugh. Kae-hwa exults — she made him laugh!

Second Topless Siwon scene! I do believe there was one episode missing a glimpse at his choco abs, so perhaps this episode is compensating. Min-woo relaxes in the spa, finding himself unwittingly humming the “Oppa” song before catching himself.

Kae-hwa’s plan has worked, and when he comes out, he’s feeling much better.

Meanwhile, Manager Yoon-seok shows up at Min-woo’s apartment. Sick of being out of the loop and angry at being unable to get a hold of Min-woo, he uses the master key to let himself inside. The apartment is empty — but he does find a crumpled sheet of paper on the bedroom floor. It’s the DNA results. Uh-oh! Somehow I don’t think Yoon-seok’s gonna use this knowledge for good instead of evil.

As they leave the spa, Kae-hwa gets a call to pick up Ye-eun, so she apologetically tells Min-woo they’ll have to make a stop. She knows this may annoy him, but he bears it pretty well — even when he’s got to share a backseat with her.

Ye-eun needs a spare set of clothing, so Kae-hwa braves Min-woo’s displeasure again to request a second stop on the way home. Again, he allows this without much fuss, and watches her shop inside the children’s store from the car.

She pauses in front of a girl’s dress (one for Min-ji) and eyes it wistfully, but keeps her purchases to Ye-eun’s clothing. To her surprise, when she returns to the car and hands back his credit card, Min-woo indicates that she take it back and tells her to buy the dress she was eyeing. He’ll buy it for her.

To keep up his cool image, he tells her he’ll just take it out of her pay. Kae-hwa knows him better than this and says, “You talk so mean but I know you’re not that kind of person.” She accepts the gesture gratefully and thrills at being able to buy Min-ji new clothes.

When they arrive home, both father and daughter are asleep, with Ye-eun halfway in Min-woo’s lap. The bonding has begun!

At their place, Jung-ah greets Shi-joon when he comes home, at first talking to him in her usual friendly manner. Ever since he found out she was cheating, he has treated her coldly, and today is no different — he packs a bag of clothing from his room, and starts to head back out.

Jung-ah wonders where he’s been sleeping, finding his behavior odd. Shi-joon, tired of her innocent act, asks why she should find this strange, challenging her to confront him about the truth. And Jung-ah has to know that he knows — if you’re cheating and your spouse starts to act distant and not share a bed with you, maybe you can have a clue?

Kae-hwa heads up to the apartment first, taking the girl with her, so as to avoid Min-woo getting caught with them in a compromising situation. A surprise awaits her, as Yoon-seok has been waiting in the apartment, stewing, and he confronts her about the exact circumstances of their arrangement. As he has seen the DNA results, Kae-hwa has to come clean and explain how she agreed to watch over Ye-eun in order to get Min-woo to agree to the musical.

Yoon-seok assumes that Kae-hwa is serious about blackmailing Min-woo with his kid in exchange for the contract. That’s technically true, but from Kae-hwa’s reaction (and what we know of her character), we can safely presume that she never intended to actually spread the gossip. Yoon-seok asks coldly how much money it would take to shut her up, and doesn’t accept her protestations that she’s not that kind of person.

Yoon-seok lives in a more jaded reality, and orders Kae-hwa to send the child to an orphanage. He’ll send someone round in the morning, by which time she should name her price.

Thinking quickly, Kae-hwa bursts out, “Then I’ll tell! I’ll reveal that Sung Min-woo abandoned his child.” (See, she’s more sly than she looks, as we know!) If she talks, Min-woo won’t be the only one ruined — the manager will also lose his cash cow: “That should be the scariest thing to a person like you who only thinks of a star as a money-making machine.”

Yoon-seok scoffs at her threat, but she demands with shaking voice and hands, “You think I can’t do it?” She dials for the operator on her phone and asks for the number to a broadcast station.

After waiting a suitable amount of time in the car, Min-woo comes up to the apartment, just in time to catch the rest of the conversation:

Kae-hwa: “To you, only the Sung Min-woo who makes money is really Sung Min-woo. You don’t think anything about the distress that he’s going through because of the child who suddenly appeared, do you? You don’t, which is why it’s so easy for you to tell me to get rid of her. Do you think Min-woo will be able to live comfortably after that?”
Yoon-seok: “Why can’t he? He’s plenty capable of that.”
Kae-hwa: “No! Not the Sung Min-woo as I see him. Sung Min-woo is different from you.”

Kae-hwa now dials the number to the broadcast station, and Yoon-seok grabs her arm fiercely, causing her phone to clatter to the ground. He threatens to scare her properly in order to teach her a lesson — at which point a voice cuts in: “Let go.”

Yoon-seok sees Min-woo watching near the doorway, and dismisses the warning to deal with Kae-hwa first. With more of an edge, Min-woo again warns his manager to let her go.

At that, Yoon-seok looks between the two and jeers. Still clenching Kae-hwa’s arm in a painful grip, he ask if there’s something going on between them.

Min-woo’s had enough, and strides up to Yoon-seok and punches him in the face. (Omo!) Wait, let me rewind that part again. Yup, he clocks him but good.

Taking Kae-hwa’s hand, Min-woo says, “Let’s go,” and leads her out.


Talk about using all the cliches in the book, huh? There isn’t any single element of this drama that is terribly unique (spoiled stars, single moms, older-woman romance, evil managers, secret children), although this may be the only one to arrange its elements in this particular order. Throughout the first four episodes, I had felt amused by but disconnected to the characters and story, and wondered whether to drop this drama.

This episode brings me back (at least for now), since we get the two leads growing on each other in an emotional way. I like that the attraction isn’t physical, and that it goes both ways in this episode. Kae-hwa sees Min-woo’s hurt when the dancers badmouth him, and Min-woo gets a glimpse into the emotions underneath Kae-hwa’s chipper ajumma exterior several times — first with Min-ji and the milk, then when she packs the kimbap and cheers him up with song, and finally when she buys the dress for Min-ji.

On one hand, it sorta feels like the romance is growing out of mutual pity (which can’t be healthy?). But I suppose the pity acts as an entree to understanding, rather than an end in itself, so there’s that.

  3. Icarusfalls

    Thanks for the recap… this show is definitely getting interesting!
    BTW we have a game about how many abs scenes will be shown on the viikii channel for OML and it’s hilarious! XP

  4. kisa101

    luv it luv it luv it! im so excited happy this review is out so fast. I love this drama so far and will continue to read watch and download it

  5. saintpolar

    They seriously gotta stop with the abs. We get it. He’s built. Don’t make him so cheap.

    And to be honest, after I started watching Ep 1 and 2, I knew it wasn’t the greatest drama. But once I start a drama, I usually don’t drop it (although I must admit, I watched up to episode 15 of Style, I don’t even know how, but I downloaded episode 16 and I just never saw it. And to be honest I didn’t care one bit lol) and it’s just filling up my time while I wait for wednesdays and thursdays for Personal Taste and Cinderella Sister.

    Okay, maybe I sounded really cold and heartless to this drama. But my point is, it’s just a lighthearted drama that’s somewhat entertaining. And YeEun is just freaking adorable <3 lol.

  6. gia

    oppa yeah, oppa
    sexy yeah, sexy

    I should be asleep, but I’m not and I am reading this so…

    I don’t think it’s pity, what is going on between them. What I think is happening is that both of them are developing insight into the other that is lacking from their other relationships (friends, lovers, work). Granted, that insight is some tender/raw stuff, but it should create pretty strong bonds between them.

    Once the physical attraction part kicks in for both of them (BOTH), then the real fun begins.

  8. mimi

    Kae-Hwa’s scenes w/ her daughter are so touching.
    Maybe overhearing Kae-Hwa yelling at her deadbeat husband will knock some sense into Min-Woo and he’ll take responsibility for his daughter.

    I’m actually enjoying this drama more than Personal Taste, although I’m a big fan of Lee Min Ho.

  9. Kender

    Yesssss, the Topless Siwon Quotient is definitely one of the highlights. No complaints here. 😉

    I love how your tone is much snarkier and more humorous when you recap this drama. We all know it’s not particularly deep fare, but that doesn’t have to keep us from enjoying it. 🙂

  10. 10 soleram

    Thank you for the recap. I love Chae Rim and finds her cute. Not so familiar with the lead man though.
    Appreciate if the recap continue on regular base, this drama begins to excite me.

  11. 11 egg

    thanks for the recap!

    I loved the part in the car when Min-woo was sleeping, and Kae- Hwa covered his head with the cloth she used to wrap the kimbap. It had me laughing so hard, especially when he woke up with the cloth still on his head!

  12. 12 tinysunbl

    Thank you for the recaps 🙂
    “On one hand, it sorta feels like the romance is growing out of mutual pity”
    I’d say the romance is growing out of empathy. When you pity someone, you kinda say “awww so sorry,” but when you empathize someone you have the urge to step out of your comfort zone and make that person feel better. I think that’s what the two of them do in this episode: first witnessing, then understanding, and finally treading to the territory of taking care for each other. Maybe “taking care of” is too strong a phrase, but I think there’s really more to their emotions than just sheer pity.

  13. 13 Rika

    Thank you JB. I haven’t started watching yet, so you’re recaps really do help.

  14. 14 mk

    tq…the scene with KH and SJ remind me Dalja Spring..

  15. 15 Anya

    The pretty boy has turned protector. I likey.

  16. 16 Amg1

    JB Thank you for your hard work.
    I am enjoying this drama a whole lot! It is predictable but as you said before the sum of all the parts makes it quite nice, epi 6 is the best so far… Kae-hwa has become my favorite “ajumma”.
    Thanks again!!!!!

  17. 17 nixxochick

    its not the greatest drama our right now but its the one that managed to catch my attention..thank you for your posts and hopefully you wont stop but if you do its totally understandable

  18. 18 linz

    Thanks for recapping!

    It’s obvious that this isn’t a really great drama so far, but I do enjoy it and it makes me laugh which is always a good thing! I liked how this episode showed how close the main couple is becoming…it’s quite cute. But I still have yet to see anything really romantic between them soo I’m waiting to see how that develops. Right now I like their cute friendship so maybe they can just stay that way and Siwon can be mine hehe 🙂

  19. 19 Bloop

    The romance is coming out a lot more quickly then other drama’s…interesting…thanks for the recaps!!

  20. 20 CS

    OOOOH I’m so happy you didn’t drop this! After this week’s episodes, its got me HOOKED! I really enjoyed it and hope it keeps up the tempo!

  21. 21 lovin it

    can’t wait for more father-daughter bonding 🙂 and main pair bonding too of course

  22. 22 Jun

    lol you like that the attraction isn’t physical? wait till you see episode 6 lolll

  23. 23 deannadsc

    In the morning, he gets up to go for a swim, because this drama has a Topless Siwon Quota to meet and no time to waste! Good thing Min-woo has such accommodating hobbies, eh? Pretty soon they’ll be running out of excuses to get him bare-chested. I can think of a few more activities he can try, like beach volleyball, or bodybuilding, or surfing. Or sumo wrestling.

    JB, you have the funniest recaps ever!!!

  24. 24 Anon

    Thanks JB!!!

    My favorite part in this epi has got to be, well aside from the end scene, the crying on cue scene. That was childish, funny and very cute. And when Chae Rim does that look (http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm96/javabeans122/drama/2010/oml/oh1/oml5-00074.jpg), it reminds me of Puss in Boots in Shrek, you know, the type who stare up at his foes with an innocent, wide-eyed, expression, which softens his foes hearts. People would go, awww… She used it, Min-woo then cave in. If Chae Rim will use it to me, I’ll definitely cave in too. lols

    I loved this epi a lot! Made me all giddy. 😀

  25. 25 hpn88

    thanks for the recap! I read somewhere that the writers/directors knew Siwon had a good body so they were going to have him go topless for the first ep. but then they found out just how good his body was and decided to make full use of his choco abs!

  26. 26 cheekbones

    Thanks ! I’m so glad you didn’t drop it (for the time being). 🙂

  27. 27 Emi

    I liked that big ending scene there, but wondered where the little girl was when he drags her out of the room and away from his manager. Did they just leave her there with him?

  28. 28 Jeann

    Thanks for continuing to recap JB!

    Hope you’ll continue until at least episode 6 because this week’s episodes have gotten me completely hooked! And I say this having almost zero understanding of the korean language and watching them raw. 🙂

    I think Chae Rim and Siwon’s interactions are totally cute! More Yeeun-Minwoo bonding to come I hope!

    Also, @27 emi
    That was also the first thing that popped into my mind in spite of all the ooh-ing that was going on about Minwoo being protective. Like, wait, you’re going to leave Yeeun with the scary man alone in the apartment?!

  29. 29 Isabella

    Pretty soon they’ll be running out of excuses to get him bare-chested. I can think of a few more activities he can try, like beach volleyball, or bodybuilding, or surfing. [b]Or sumo wrestling.[/b]

    –> haha! your comment really cracked me up.lol. (^_^)

  30. 30 shienice

    Both ep.5 & 6 really caught me and i am addicting to this drama now. The 2 leads are getting better and better. i love their way of interaction, their caring and understanding to each other. The chemistry keeps growing and sparkling…..Cant wait for next week !!!!

  31. 31 Freehee

    Generic and all, the man has beautiful abs. And the drama doesn’t go short of letting us see them very frequently either. Good light-hearted, make-you-smile kinda stuff, look forward to your future recaps. Thanks JB!

  32. 32 Melissa

    I don’t think I’ll watch this drama, but I enjoy reading your recaps. This had me laughing out loud.

  33. 33 Coco

    Great recap! it is even funnier to read your recap than watch the show. So far, this drama is just another funny drama with a big idol star in it. I have not seen any chemistry building between them, but for the sake of the great abs and both good looking leads, I will continue watching it. oh, please change Chae Rim’s hair style/wig soon or I can’t watch it anymore! I am sure this is going to happen later..lol

  34. 34 mooomincandylalala

    I’m enjoying this drama so much more after Chae-rim’s last two disappointments (imo)
    They’ve finally put her to good use here.

    And who needs hobbies… cuz according to k-drama law, every male lead with a fit bod has got to SHOWER, at least once by himself, and at least once for the female lead to “accidentally” see… kekeke

  35. 35 schatzky

    i love this drama, its not boring, every episode its full of life kekekeke, i love viikii for fastest subber… how many abs shown? hmmppp can’t count lol

  36. 36 tamu

    JB thanks in millions….

  37. 37 Ladymoonstone143

    Thanks Javabeans for these amazing recaps. I am still on my Chuno widrawal but this drama makes me smile. Plus your recaps are always great so I am always looking forward to reading them.,,:))

    The choco abs are so Vitamin A to my eye. When I see these scenes, my eyes always cleared up…lol

  38. 38 just me....

    thankss a zillion… but can’t wait for ur ep 6’s recap.. plss..

  39. 39 danni

    Loved the line about ahjummas getting shit done (because who DOESN’T know that?) and who knows, your suggestion of sports for Min Woo to do for more ab time might pop up in the drama, because I really wouldn’t put it past the writers. It’s true, this drama isn’t the greatest and everything felt, and still feels, a little out there, but I think OML makes it work. Good luck with all these recaps jb, don’t know how you do it.

  40. 40 doozy

    LOL @ sumo wrestling…

  41. 41 Janerdelle

    I love this drama, though its kinda common to dalja’s spring with the same kind of a young guy fallin into an mature and not so old women…But I will not drop this drama same as I drop the K-drama when it snow on x-mas….I also love the drama Personal Taste….:)

  42. 42 Porcelain

    In the morning, he gets up to go for a swim, because this drama has a Topless Siwon Quota to meet and no time to waste! Good thing Min-woo has such accommodating hobbies, eh? Pretty soon they’ll be running out of excuses to get him bare-chested. I can think of a few more activities he can try, like beach volleyball, or bodybuilding, or surfing. Or sumo wrestling.

    WORD! Too funny! But as much as I love my Siwon, he was in this too tight shirt last week (the scene where Kae Hwa spit wine onto his face), that I thought he was either 1. bursting out of it or 2. his head look small while his shoulder is too broad…

    Back to the episode, to add on to the cliches and ealier episode had Min Woo ask Kae Hwa to sign some babysitter/housekeeper/general ahjumma contract with him and it dawn on me… how many contracts does an average Kdrama signs?

    And I like to think the feeling is not growing due to pity but do to a level of understanding after witnessing each other vulnerability and somehow find themself wanting to protect each other…… Min Woo with that goddamn awful of a manager and Kae Hwa and Minji scenes just breaks heart (and her stupid ex-hubby, which I can just slap!… And I like to think that physically; Min Woo is beginning to find Kae Hwa cute and Kae Hwa finding herself unable to resist his chocolate abs…

    Oh and I want bb Ye Eun to bond with Min Woo soon… coz we know Siwon loves babies!

    I can’t wait for next episodes!!! Monday come quick!!!

  43. 43 goldenlotus

    I’m really liking Siwoo’s character because you can see how nice he is behind his front. I’m thinking that his experiences with being an actual idol may contribute to his performance. *fighting*

  44. 44 sl

    She may have well just insulted his penis size …
    HAHA true dat!

    I know this drama pulls out every cliche in the kdrama world, but for the most ridiculous reasons, I absolutely adore it. Maybe I just like all the cliches… but these two episodes really pulled me in. Personally, I haven’t REALLY liked a drama (as in gone slightly crazy) since Boys Over Flowers, and while the two aren’t even remotely similar, I feel like I’m gonna be addicted. Scratch that, i AM addicted.

    plus getting to see choco abs twice a week is NOT a bad thing.

  45. 45 Norme

    Annyeong JB,

    huh – i don’t know how i feel about a romantic pairing. somehow, right now, i really can’t see it. it’s probably going to happen but i’d like if they reach this point of mutual respect and affinity for each other – and not necessarily loveeee

    i’m really really REALLY glad that by the 5th episode min woo has punched his manager. that was so well-deserved and it could have dragged on but they didn’t. it’s clear now that he’s probably going to cut this horrid man out of his life and kae hwa can be his proper manager. it’s also nice to see that it’s not just a grab-the-girl-and-go move, but it’s a punch-AND-THEN-grab-the-girl… yay for machoness!!!!

    his choco abs had to come to SOME use right? aside from eye candy?

    i think the subtitle of the header picture should be “one singular sensation…” XD hahahhaha now i’m imagining min woo doing “a chorus line”.

    till now, I’ve enjoyed that ep most including ep 6. that drama is cuter than I expected. I really like Choi Siwon’s acting such as mimics gestures so on
    nowadays, that is the drama I’m waiting to watch like a crazy and also I’m watching the same eps again and again.
    thanks for the recaps. can’t wait the ep 6’s recaps 😉

    My favourite moment in the entire episode is when Minwoo realizes Gyehwa is the one responsible for the kimbab. It was sweet yet understated.

    I like what you said about the emotional attraction. I hope they don’t alter Gyehwa’s appearance to be more suited as a star’s love interest. And I know this is probably moot, but I don’t want the romance to take center stage. I want to see Minwoo’s growth as an actor and Gyehwa’s developing her professional life.

    So far, I LOVE Oh My Lady, more than the other airing dramas with perhaps ‘better’ quality and execution. It’s really heartwarming and it makes me smile.
