Love is in the air as the aunties reveal that age is just a number and the heart is young forever. Or so it should be. Most of the episode deals with Suk-gyun’s dawning realization that perhaps he’s not been the most caring and empathetic husband and father, and Choong-nam gets a few glorious moments... More »

Ahhhh, sweet revenge. Suk-gyun remains clueless about why Jung-ah left him, assuming it’s a temporary thing and she’ll be back. Everyone else tries to gently (or not so gently, if you’re Choong-nam) clue him in, but he stubbornly refuses to believe he’s in the wrong, which results in everyone making the most amazing faces as...

Smiles, so many smiles! If this drama was nothing but cute old people acting like giddy teenagers, I don’t think I’d complain. Of course, there is still that one issue that needs to be addressed between Nan-hee and Wan, as Wan needs to know the truth about that night from her childhood. Even so, this... More »

With age, comes experience — at least, that’s what we’re told. All the lessons that life teaches you, however willing a student you might be, may not always prepare you for what’s ahead. Preconceived notices and assumptions are challenged as the truth is revealed about past actions, and while the aunties reel from their various... More »

Mother-daughter relationships are at once beautiful, complex, and heart-breaking. Parents are fallible and children imperfect, and navigating these relationships as one grows further into adulthood only becomes more confusing. Perhaps, like Nan-hee and Wan, there could be an equitable camaraderie, or perhaps, like Jung-ah and Soon-young, there could be carefully maintained boundaries built to protect... More »

Appearances are deceiving. You think you can know a person based on their outer appearance and demeanor, by what they say and how they act, but you can’t fully understand their motivations or inner turmoil that reveal who they truly are at their core. Just as Wan is discovering that there is so much more... More »
