My Unfamiliar Family: Episode 10

Our formerly amnesiac father makes a major confession to his family that sends them reeling. Decades-long dishonesty is bound to feel like a betrayal, particularly to his wife, and no apology can undo the damage. It’s a lot to process, and they each handle it about as differently as you’d expect given their personalities.

 
EPISODE 10

Chan-hyuk belatedly sees a text from Eun-hee and calls her, but she’s in a reticent mood. When she tells him she hates herself, he tries to lighten the mood. He asks if she remembers that letter she wrote for the competition. She shoots up in bed, and her too hasty denial makes Chan-hyuk smile.

After he hangs up, he pulls out the letter and rereads it. She opens by going on about his jawline and he cringes and chuckles in equal measure at how into her act she was. While he reads the letter all smiles, Eun-hee lies horrified on her bed as she recalls what she wrote.

In a flashback, we see Eun-hee watching Chan-hyuk starry-eyed as he takes photographs. He smiles at her and snaps a photo.

Chan-hyuk welcomes Geon-joo to his office. He’s surprised to hear that Geon-joo wants to contract his company as an independent photography team. Chan-hyuk thinks Eun-hee must have pushed for it, but Geon-joo shares that the book’s author wanted him. Geon-joo pushes the contract over, but Chan-hyuk hesitates.

At home, Sang-shik brings his surprise guests in. Little Yeon-gyu’s ball rolls to Eun-joo, and Yeon-gyu runs right up and hugs her. Sang-shik shocks the room by announcing they’re all family, making Jin-sook angrily demand to know what he’s trying to do.

Sang-shik assures her it’s not what she thinks, and everyone sits down for the most uncomfortable gathering ever. After his memory returned, he decided the kids deserved to know “what kind of father” they have.

He committed such a great sin, but he told himself keeping it secret was for the good of his family. Jin-sook is livid he’s doing this to the kids, but he yells that it’s not what she thinks. It’s worse.

In the summer of 1994, he was rushing to get home one night and accidentally hit a kid. Young-shik’s grandmother, who was raising him, didn’t report the accident and just thanked him for taking Young-shik to the hospital.

Presently, Young-shik tries to alleviate the tension and lightheartedly says Sang-shik did everything he could for him. He took him to school, gave him spending money, played catch with him and took care of his grandmother. Sang-shik thinks that’s a given since he should’ve gone to jail.

Instead, Sang-shik found him a job and watched over him as he got married and had Yeon-gyu. The kids are shocked when Jin-sook mentions seeing Young-shik before, but Sang-shik clarifies she didn’t know about all this. He announces he’s going to live with Young-shik and Yeon-gyu now. They’re his responsibility for life.

Everyone is stunned when Ji-woo angrily asks why. This all happened before he was even born. He barely ever saw his father and certainly never played catch with him. Ji-woo throws off Eun-hee’s hand and storms to his room.

Eun-hee gets a drink for Yeon-gyu and chats with him before walking him and Young-shik out. Sang-shik gets up and barges into Ji-woo’s room.

At his office, Chan-hyuk wants to think Geon-joo’s offer over and says he’ll meet with Eun-hee the next day. Geon-joo compliments a photo of Chan-hyuk’s and embarrasses him by mentioning that Eun-hee said he thinks of Van Gogh when photographing.

Chan-hyuk is surprised to hear they emailed back and forth for a long time. He claims Eun-hee writes the most fun emails and letters. Heh, indeed. Geon-joo thinks Chan-hyuk should convince her to write her own book, but Chan-hyuk says that’s not an easy topic to broach.

Geon-joo thought they were able to talk about anything. He even heard Eun-hee won a literary award once and took Chan-hyuk to the ceremony. Geon-joo apologizes for talking too much when Chan-hyuk gets uncomfortable. It’s pretty awkward.

Meanwhile, Sang-shik tries to explain to Ji-woo that he played catch with Young-shik a few times because other kids made fun of his limp. His aggressive tone isn’t helping much, but he softens as he comments that Ji-woo isn’t a petty person.

Ji-woo cries as he tries to convince his dad he’s done enough for Young-shik. He worries because his dad is getting older. Touched, Sang-shik wipes his son’s tears and says this is just the beginning for him. He offers to take Ji-woo hiking, boasting he won’t be able to keep up.

When Eun-joo wants to head out, Jin-sook knocks on the door to call out Sang-shik. He gets upset when neither of his daughters have anything to say to him, so Eun-hee says she’ll talk to him once things have settled. Sang-shik addresses his “smart oldest daughter” who just tells him to do what he wants.

It doesn’t seem like anyone’s told him she knows he’s not her bio dad. He thinks she’ll agree that he’s doing the right thing, but she claims the right thing would’ve been reporting it and telling his wife. He took the easy way out.

Eun-hee tries to intervene, but Eun-joo pushes on that he grew fond of the kid and even had him call him “father.” She criticizes him for taking on more than he could handle. Does he think taking responsibility for someone’s life is that easy?

Sang-shik quietly concedes she’s right and apologizes to her and Eun-hee. Eun-joo storms out, and Eun-hee chases after her. Eun-joo says Eun-hee’s job is to console people, but Eun-hee would rather drive her home. Tae-hyung asked her too since Eun-joo still isn’t well.

Before Sang-shik leaves, Jin-sook offers him the bankbook. She’ll keep living here so as not to upset the kids, but he should take the money if he’s going to take care of Young-shik and Yeon-gyu. She’ll gradually pay Eun-joo back.

She exasperatedly asks why he sprung this on the kids without talking to her. When he claims he feels relieved now, she angrily asks if that makes up for all the years he made her misunderstand. Sang-shik isn’t trying to make up for them and tells her to keep hating him. He leaves the bankbook behind.

At Chan-hyuk’s, Seo-young comes in as Geon-joo is leaving. She starts prying into Chan-hyuk’s personal life again and acting jealous. When Chan-hyuk gets frustrated, she announces that she’s getting annoyed at herself too. She acknowledges he won’t develop feelings and gives up.

Chan-hyuk thinks of her as a little sister seeing as he’s known her since she was a child. Seo-young agrees to be like siblings, and immediately starts insulting him like a real sibling would when he tells her to go home. Ha.

In the car, Eun-hee says she understands their dad somewhat. Naturally, Eun-joo takes the opposing side and is upset on Jin-sook’s behalf. But she doesn’t want to fight, so they agree to disagree.

Eun-hee asks when Eun-joo is going to tell their dad and offers to do it together, but Eun-joo irritably says she’ll handle it herself once she’s processed it. Eun-hee changes the topic to Ji-woo and his surprise outburst. Eun-joo says he plays the baby of the family for everyone, but he’s grown now too.

She tells Eun-hee to leave Ji-woo alone to figure things out. Unlike them, he doesn’t have any memories of their parents getting along. Before she leaves, Eun-hee awkwardly hands her a present and tells her to eat something.

Tae-hyung is waiting for Eun-joo outside and chides her for not taking her medicine. Eun-joo zones out, thinking of Yeon-gyu hugging her. Their kid would’ve been five if she hadn’t miscarried. Eun-joo begins sobbing and says it’s time she stops pretending she’s okay. She doesn’t think she can ever forgive him.

The following morning, Jin-sook is surprised to find Ji-woo isn’t home. Eun-hee, meanwhile, finds Chan-hyuk waiting for her at P&F. He’s surprised Geon-joo didn’t tell her about their meeting and scolds her for not giving him the contract personally.

Inside, Chan-hyuk formally asks “Team Leader Eun-hee” if he should sign the contract. She responds that he should, but the pay won’t be great. Their professionalism lasts all of two seconds before they start smacking each other and bickering like kids. Ha.

They behave once Geon-joo arrives, but the atmosphere is strained between Geon-joo and Eun-hee. She declines coffee with a threatening look toward Chan-hyuk, insisting they’ll be done soon. After Geon-joo leaves, Chan-hyuk gets a call from Eun-joo – he looks at Eun-hee anxiously – and agrees to meet her that evening.

Chan-hyuk immediately tells Eun-hee about it, and she shares that Eun-joo isn’t in a good state. And Ji-woo … she sighs that Chan-hyuk is more like a family member than a friend now. Chan-hyuk promises to call her after he meets with Eun-joo.

Eun-joo finds a fully prepared breakfast waiting for her and hears Tae-hyung loudly arguing with his mother on the phone. They sit for breakfast, and Eun-joo compares his fixing breakfast and getting her medicine to Eun-hee gifting her chocolate as a sign she wants to make peace.

“Just like us, Eun-hee and I have changed.” Eun-hee always thought Sang-shik loved Eun-joo more, but she thinks he was more comfortable around Eun-hee. With her, he was cautious “because I’m not his biological daughter.” She barely gives Tae-hyung time to process that statement before suggesting they divorce.

Eun-hee goes with Chan-hyuk to a nearby park where she models goofily for his pictures. Reminiscent of their college years, she watches him take photos but looks away when he turns around. Chan-hyuk thinks she should head back – Geon-joo doesn’t seem to like them being together.

He comments (looking uneasy) that Geon-joo seems sincere about Eun-hee. Chan-hyuk misinterprets her awkwardness because she, for some reason, doesn’t tell him she broke it off.

He gets serious and says the reason he takes care of Ji-woo and is good to Eun-joo … is Eun-hee. “You always come before them, my friend.” Eun-hee thinks to herself that this “perfect friendship confession” makes her heart flutter and yet feels somewhat sad.

As per usual, Eun-hee jokes to counteract the seriousness and says she doesn’t believe him. How come he always treats her as third in line, then? They start arguing and joking around, like always.

Once he gets back, Chan-hyuk notices Ji-woo acting weird at work, and Seo-young informs him he’s been super serious all day. At P&F, Eun-hee confronts Geon-joo about giving her special treatment and lets him know she won’t accept it in the future.

Ha-ra calls Eun-hee out to meet. She’s going back to the US and wanted to see Eun-hee first. Ha-ra finds it strange that Eun-hee didn’t attempt to contact Geon-joo over the past week; she had his phone, so she’d know.

Ha-ra was the one who wanted to leave three years ago, and after convincing her to stay, Geon-joo slept around. Eun-hee is unfazed, and but Ha-ra manages to shock her with the news that Geon-joo came to Korea to close their branch.

Ha-ra then rubs it in that they slept together during the past week. She passes his phone over to Eun-hee, asking her to return it. But Eun-hee is over their petty drama and refuses to get involved.

Eun-joo meets with her mother-in-law to inform her of the impending divorce. Her mother-in-law doesn’t take kindly to Eun-joo’s assertion that she won’t be able to pressure Tae-hyung into doing what she wants this time. “It’s not a choice.”

Sang-shik throws himself into work and tells Man-ho that people have always accused him of being obsessed with money, so why care now? Just tell them it’s because he’s had two families to support.

At the care facility, Seon-il’s wife pegs Sang-shik as a romantic. When Jin-sook calls Seon-il a great husband, his wife disagrees. She can’t forget how hard he was on the kids about studying, even hitting them sometimes. She envies how good Sang-shik was to their children.

Eun-joo and Chan-hyuk meet for dinner where she asks him what he heard and saw at her wedding. Some of her friends approached him and asked for him to send them the wedding photos since they didn’t expect Eun-joo would. He’s still in touch with them.

She comments he’s just as nosy as Eun-hee. Even though she’s been friends with them for nearly 20 years, she’s never talked about her family. Eun-joo blames herself for being closed off.

Eun-joo suspects he caught on to her inferiority complex and emotional scars that her family doesn’t notice. Her friend asked Chan-hyuk about her recently, and he thinks Eun-joo should contact her. She’s hesitant since they haven’t been in touch, but Chan-hyuk thinks friends can sometimes do what family can’t.

As Eun-hee drinks alone, Eun-joo divulges to Chan-hyuk that Eun-hee used to like him. (It’s finally outed!) Being the middle child, Eun-hee learned to match the mood and “lower” herself to focus on everyone else’s happiness. If a guy is impressive and good to her, she assumes it won’t work and draws a line.

Chan-hyuk is flustered and comments that this must be the part of Eun-hee that only family would know. Eun-joo knows it’s because Eun-hee always comes across as overly positive. Eun-joo wonders how her dating life is now.

Chan-hyuk calls Eun-hee to say he just met with Eun-joo, but Eun-hee is too drunk to have a serious conversation. Meanwhile, Geon-joo sits in his office, thinking about Eun-hee. Kyung-ok comes in and returns his phone since Ha-ra didn’t want to see him again. This is like high school drama.

Ji-woo sent Chan-hyuk to his now thoroughly drunk sister. Chan-hyuk watches her overly happy demeanor with new eyes after Eun-joo’s comments. Chan-hyuk joins her for a drink as she celebrates the end of her triangular relationship.

Jin-sook meets with Sang-shik to give him the bankbook again. He agrees to take it when she says his refusal will lead her to assume he wants to sell the house. Sang-shik wants to send her money monthly, but Jin-sook won’t hear of it. She can take care of herself and doesn’t want him to have an excuse to contact her.

Over drinks, Eun-hee worries that Chan-hyuk told Eun-joo about her sending him Eun-joo’s photo to show his army buddies. Chan-hyuk wonders why she didn’t send her own picture, but Eun-hee thought Eun-joo was prettier and would match their expectations better. Chan-hyuk comments he took some pictures where Eun-hee looks sort of good. Pfft. Just say she’s pretty, dude.

The first picture of her he took was at the literary award ceremony. They can’t believe they were only 20 back then. They recall being drunk afterwards and walking around on that fall night. Eun-hee names it as one of her most perfect days.

They were just friends with no other feelings (uh-huh) who bickered and seriously talked about their dreams and futures. She even picked up a leaf that day as a remembrance. Eun-hee shares for the first time that she suddenly started having feelings for him after that day.

Chan-hyuk tries to remain calm, cool and collected as she confides she saw that night as a special secret between them and worried about what to say when she saw him. Abruptly, she slams her hand on the table, startling Chan-hyuk.

He advertised what was supposed to be their special secret to Jong-min and the whole class, even showing them pictures! (I love how into her retellings she gets.) Eun-hee was so embarrassed and put an end to her feelings right then.

Chan-hyuk covers his sad expression by chuckling that it feels like he was dumped even though they never dated. Eun-hee compares him to the walkway from that night, a memory from her 20th fall. Chan-hyuk watches her intently and says, “Let’s go.”

Elsewhere, Jin-sook yells at Sang-shik for keeping this huge secret from her for so long. Sang-shik sits quietly. Doesn’t she have any secrets from him?

He saw Eun-joo’s birth father at the wedding and accuses Jin-sook of secretly being in contact with him all these years. Enraged, she takes a piece of fruit and hurls it to the ground, to Sang-shik’s shock.

Eun-joo tells Tae-hyung she met with his mother to formally end things. He doesn’t think it’s necessary since their divorce is between them. She disagrees. “Just wait and see what I’ll do from now on.” That sounds concerning.

Chan-hyuk watches a drunk Eun-hee having a ball, bouncing ahead down the same walkway from their youth. He thinks, “You called it a memory, so why I am trying to start something now?” Chan-hyuk closes the distance between them, stopping when they’re mere inches apart.

 
COMMENTS

I figured a straightforward affair situation would be too pedestrian for this drama, so I wasn’t surprised by Young-shik’s story. Once again, the true tragedy is in the secrecy. If Sang-shik had been open about what happened in the first place, everything could’ve turned out much differently. Young-shik obviously forgave him, and his family might have worked through it had he been honest. His lifelong lie even made Ji-woo confrontational, and that’s no small feat. He’s so sweet and caring. Even after he blew up at Sang-shik for neglecting him, his first thought was to worry about the strain of all this on his dad. I’m worried that he’s going to somehow find out that Jin-sook wanted to abort him since this family is hemorrhaging secrets of late. That’s not something that needs to get out, and I would hate for him to feel even more like an afterthought in his family.

Despite their many differences, the sisters definitely know each other well. Eun-joo’s insight into Eun-hee was interesting, that she goes for guys who don’t treat her that well since she doesn’t feel worthy of better. Eun-hee works so hard to please everyone and act happy all the time – it must be exhausting. I’m glad Eun-joo shared that with Chan-hyuk since he’s really the only person who Eun-hee leans on and gets consolation from. Chan-hyuk already knew Eun-hee well enough to know she sometimes hides behind playfulness and is more sensitive than she lets on, but he obviously didn’t know how deep it runs. I was relieved when he told Eun-hee that he puts her first because I think she needs to know that someone does.

Now that he’s gotten confirmation from Eun-joo and Eun-hee herself that she liked him at one point, it looks like Chan-hyuk might stop holding back. I’m not sure how Eun-hee will react, though. She’s worked so hard to put a wall between them in that regard, and I don’t think she’ll let him tear it down easily. Her insecurity will likely be a barrier, but the fact that she didn’t let Ha-ra and Geon-joo treat her like dirt gives me hope. I think she’s starting to respect herself more and demand it from others, so maybe she’ll accept that she deserves someone like Chan-hyuk who respects and cares about her.

Thank goodness Seo-young finally stopped being pushy and annoying with Chan-hyuk. Girl was getting on my nerves with her disrespectful advances. No means no, ma’am. I’m with Chan-hyuk that her feelings come across as forced anyway. I think he’s more like a security blanket that she’s desperate to hold onto. I wouldn’t be surprised if she ends up with Ji-woo (if he breaks up with that supposed girlfriend, that is).

So Geon-joo is there to shut down the branch? I hadn’t really thought about why they brought him in, but that would make sense. Does that mean Eun-hee’s job is in danger, or will she just get transferred somewhere else? He’s certainly kept all of this under wraps, if it’s true. I wouldn’t put it past Ha-ra to lie about it, but I got the feeling she was telling the truth. They’ve been mentioning Eun-hee’s writing ability a lot recently, and it feels like they’re setting it up for her to pivot to being an author. Chan-hyuk’s reaction when Geon-joo suggested convincing her to write a book suggests something happened to make her give it up. Just another layer to peel back.

So many thoughts:

1st: Awwww, our poor maknae, he deserves better and to be angry. He is so sweet and kind. I hope whoever his "girlfriend" is treats him well. I also like that Eun Hee always asks after him when she speaks to Chan Hyuk.

Second: I am glad Seo Young stopped too because it was inappropriate and unwanted. She is smarter and better than a certain someone from *cough* ahem a show about a class in a neighborhood in Seoul *cough*

Third: I hope Chan Hyuk fights for his and Eun Hee's relationship because I love their easy banter and clear adoration of each other.

Fourth: Eun Joo needs a hug. She wouldn't like it, but she needs one. She has been through it.

Fifth: Geon Joo's girlfriend. Initially I was annoyed and angry with her for being so rude, but then I realized she was the aggrieved party. She is allowed to be a little rude to Eun Hee, but mostly to Geon Joo. So she actually has my sympathies. Geon Joo is trash, Ha Ra go be happy elsewhere.

"Fourth: Eun Joo needs a hug. She wouldn't like it, but she needs one. She has been through it."

I was kind of hoping that Eun-hee would just give her sister a big ol' hug during her breakdown last episode, but also I wouldn't be surprised if she would have just shoved Eun-hee away if she tried.

She has on several occasions that Eun-hee tried to hug and comfort her. She even did in said scene. People like Eun-Joo are best left alone when crying, but under close watch.

Hugs! You really need to know the person enough to know if it will be good or not. Because the person may feel pitied and hate it, depending of their character. Sometimes feeling pitied is worse.

I'm with you about maknae. I was sad and angry at the same time. He deserves better and the attention he hasn't received.

Regarding HaRa, I kindly disagree. Yes, she's the aggrieved party but that doesn't give her any right to harass EH. All her anger should be directed to the one who aggrieved her, GJ. EH is a free woman who could have an affair with anyone, and it that person has a couple or not, it's that's person problem, not EH.

Maybe, I agree most of Ha Ra's anger should be directed at GJ, but EH deserves a little bit of it. She knew he was with someone else and didn't care, until she was almost caught. She knew she was wrong, which is why she felt bad. We may have agree to disagree on this. lol.

Love...I wonder, if Jin-Sook had had the courage to verbally and expressively say how much she loved Sang-shik, would he have confided in her? From the start he had always been feeling inadequate, still is, but if Jin-Sook had worked on that inferiority by assuring him, would things have been different? Don't get me wrong, both parties are wrong and the fact that they still refuse to see the other's perspective shows that they have a long way to go from healing a from decades-long misunderstanding, but I have faith in them. Whether they yell or talk they should communicate their real feelings and not the expected feelings both perceive of each other.
To Eun-Joo, I saw she felt bad after tearing at her father. She did feel bad but her pride and her hurt won't let her admit it. I hope she also airs all her feelings, the good, bad and ugly, unless she is going to be stuck in a whirlwind of frustrated emotions she is pushing herself into. I hope she opens up more. She truly is her mother's daughter.
And finally Eun-hee. I was so proud of her for elegantly placing herself out of the triangle. I loved how each of Ha-ra's taunts didn't faze her, at least on the outside, and how she got the last word in. Let them know you are beyond their childish game Eun-hee. I watched that scene several times because it got me excited knowing Eun-hee is growing up well.

I was so proud of Eun Hee in that scene. My girl was doing so great there. Her last words ended the conversation and that served Ha Ra right.

I still can't believe Geon Joo is this bad.

Eunjoo and Eunhee are alike in a way that they have set themselves up a wall of defence to avoid being hurt: Eunjoo with her closing off herself to the world and Eunhee with lowering her expectations of the world (for her).
Well, those defences didn’t work so well, did they?
It all stemmed from that one day Jinsook left home.

Many of us had already figured out that Sang-shik did not have an affair and another son, and that he was probably caring for this other 'son' as the result of an accident. The details were the only mystery. But, there is little doubt that his wife and children can still feel honestly betrayed by how Sang shik handled the situation. And I was actually angered by his statement that he would be staying with Young-shik and child "because they are my life-long responsibility". As if your actual children are not?

Is Sang-shik right about his wife having stayed in touch with Eun-joo's father? Or was that just his insecurities talking? But Jin-sook's reaction was so extreme that I wonder what the real story might be.

Chan-hyuk looks like he is finally going to take action and do something with Eun-hee. Or have we just been handed another red herring? I sure hope not, I cannot stand the total stupidity of two people who are totally right for each other constantly finding ways to be apart.

Meanwhile Eun-joo, after being handed shock after shock is finally getting back on her feet: "Just see what I will do"- That's the spirit. Go for it.

Seo-young and Ji-woo getting together? Are we sure that there are no surprises to come from maknae? There still time for a few more bombs to blow up.

I forgot one more detail, or is it another bomb waiting to explode? In this episode we learned that Eun-joo had a miscarriage 5 years ago and that she blames her husband for it. Smokescreen? Red Herring? Or are we now going to get another story arc stemming from what happened then?

Don't think she means TH literally had anything to do with that miscarriage? We have been told she tried IVF for a while and then gave up. Also the time EH goes to her after hearing about her cheating BF, EJ is supposed to be recovering from said miscarriage.
I think she blames TH for the fact that she was alone in wanting that child and that he basically robbed her of all that time she could've had a child of her own.
I also thought if another layer was at play when that sweet child hugged her and pain crossed over her face....Dad brought home the pseudo grand kid that his other 'adopted' child had managed to have. Knowing EJ's pattern of thinking, she probably noted it as a silent indictment against her. Another failure of hers that people probably think of, another insecurity to store away.

EJ would not be blaming TH for the miscarriage if TH had not done something that could logically be tied to it. For instance this might have been one of the times he was absent from the home and so she was unable to get prompt medical care. Of course, if that was the case there is no guarantee that it would have stopped the miscarriage from happening. The key point is that he did something- we just do not know what it was or how big a difference it made.

But when he said he was going to be a father only, when Jin Sook left, what was he referring to? And when Jin Sook left, was that when she thought of aborting Ji Woo, and she took Eun Joo with her? And why did she take Eun Joo? Was it because she was not Sang Sik's child?

I agree with you: SS cheated on his family by not telling them about what happened. His betrayal is even bigger to me to JiWoo, who has to listen that his dad (who never played with him and who's always been cold while at home since he was born) considers his other son "his life-long responsibility"... so what is he? He must have felt so bad, so put aside. I was aching as he was and his reaction was the one I would have had in his situation.

Regarding JS being in touch with EJ's dad... well... that's an assumption, and let's be honest, SS and JS are very good (or bad) in assuming things. I guess that's where EJ took her bad habbit.

And I hope EJ drains her family in law from all their money. I was glad when TH called her and said he was sorry for everything he did wrong and wanted to be friends. I would understand if she accepted his pipe of peace, but I'm totally ok with her showing no mercy to them.

I totally agree with you, Eazal, this family's biggest problem is Assumptions--and they are all afflicted with that disease.

EJ is a lawyer. Even if she practices in a different specialty she still knows (I have said this before) that the best revenge is a really, really big check. I will be hugely disappointed in her if she does not follow through with this. I doubt that there is anything else that would really effect her mother-in-law.

What could mom-in-law do to her? EJ is the kind of lawyer who gets offered a partnership during a casual conversation: In other words her daughter in law stands much higher as a lawyer then she does as a doctor.

When Eun-joo criticized SS for taking on more than he could handle and for thinking that he could take responsibility for someone's life, he must have thought she was talking about YS and his son, but I think she was really blaming him for taking responsibility for Jin-sook and for her. I hope someday she turns that around and thanks him, since his willingness to be her father guaranteed that she would be born and not aborted.

I hate that they cut the final scene just as Chan-hyuk came close to Eun-hee. Come on, show! We're way past the mid-point -- did you have to leave us hanging? Don't we deserve a kiss by now?

Lol! Me too! Although I am lately, honestly, hating the guys who goes for a kiss without asking if they don't know yet that the girl is in the same "stage" in the relationship.
Let me explain: if both like each other for sure (even without it being said) then awesome, the guy going for the kiss is romantic a swoon. But if it's only one (for this applies to girls as well) who is in love or she/he is not sure the other one feels the same, then kissing that person by surprise is disgusting and unwanted.

How many times we have seen the second lead trying to kiss the first one and fail and we are happy he fails because we know he is the second lead?? (Hello, even if he is handsome and not evil, he is the second lead). But if it is the main lead, even if he abuses his power over the girl by kissing her when she doesn't expect it, and even when sometimes he gets slapped, we still think it's ok, because he is the end game anyways????
Not fair.
He has to kiss only when he is sure he won't be rejected, asking for it or taking her by surprise.

In this case, I am not expecting Chan-hyuk to end their friendship by kissing Eun-hee and so starting a romance, as if he is the only one who needs to take that decision... But I hope he just gets closer in order to confess, and see what happens...
That would be swoon! 😆🙂☺

CH values consent and it would have been totally out of character had he jumped to kiss her in that moment. In fact I was scared this would happen when he was walking towards her but so glad that it just stopped there. It would've destroyed his character. Also how there has always been a huge contrast between CH and GJ and its Gj who just jumps into things while I think CH will take his time. They shouldn't let CH do that considering how he has always given such a helpful and comforting insight to SY.
I also thought EJ was talking about her and JS in that scene. The remarks were harsh but true.

@javinne, @wapzy, there's no reason that purposeful walk could not have ended in two meaningful words from him, two meaningful words from her, and that kiss that's hanging in the air. She's drunk enough to let her guard down, but not so drunk that she can't express what she wants. I felt like that was too big a tease, to leave that moment hanging for a whole week.

Bang on about the true source of EJ's derisive comments about taking responsibility. This is just about the worst time that dad could've relayed this info as far as EJ is concerned. In her eyes, dad just secretly had taken on another non bio kid. Her comment that SS probably encouraged the young kid to call him 'abonim' is probably how she now views SS's adoration and affection towards her! Just the generous instinct of a man who took the easy way out and took advantage of the young kid's situation

When Eun-joo was talking about Eun-hee, that was probably the closest smile we’ve gotten from her, she was shining like “I KNOW my sister”.

As someone who has been cheering for CH-EH since day 1, let me scream AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!
Friendship between opposite sex is great but when the attraction is clearly there, taking actions might bring more to the relationship. Though, if these two end up being friends, certainly wouldn’t mind that either.

Ji-woo, oh maknae ah, you sweet little kid! I really do hope he wouldn’t find out about the supposed abortion but this wouldn’t be a drama if he won’t. So here’s to hoping he’ll have CH, his sisters and “girlfriend” to assure him that he’s loved.

I had to do a double take hearing EJ talk fondly of her sister. I mean, I know she loves her but to see EJ be bright and smiley..the only other time she's come anywhere close to being that light was with the handsome barista. Really hope CH can somehow bring HK back into EJ's life. Those two seemed to get each other. But that's probably not in the cards but it's great that he's turning her attention towards the friends she'd neglected It's probably better to free CH up from the role of EJ's confidante if he is to have any realistic future with EH.

Same. I rewatched the scene because it was so unusual for EJ to talk with fondness and such warmth towards EH. I was also glad that CH suggested that EJ should reconnect with her friends. And as you said, he can’t continue to be the confidante if he plans to seriously pursue EH.

Ok so lemme get this straight. Sang shik caused an unfortunate accident before 1994 which caused him immense guilt and thus he started to shoulder that child's responsibility. He didn't share this big, life altering event with his wife which caused his wife to jump to the worst possible conclusion. She started distancing herself from him and Sang Sik remained confused about this change in behaviour. Then Jin Sook finds out she's pregnant but because she thinks her husband is cheating on her she takes her eldest child with her and tries to abort the baby (she couldn't go through with it). [I'm confused as to why she took Eun Joo along at all?. If you're planning for an abortion, taking along your eldest child doesnt seem to be a very wise decision so why?? Whats the logic, reason behind it? I'm further confused that if for whatever reason she had to/wanted to take her child, why did she take only Eun Joo with her and not Eun Hee?] Coming home to only find his youngest daughter crying after her mother, Sang Sik concludes that his wife abandoned him and their youngest daughter so he swears to only live for the children if she ever comes back. She does and so he fulfils his promise like the loyal, true to his words guy he is. Thus began the saga of fractured family relations and the everlasting scars it caused on each person. And now it looks like Sang Sik again jumped to conclusion about EunJoo's birth father being invited to the wedding and/or Jin Sook remaining in touch with him. Her reaction certainly indicated that she was extremely angry at him for his assumptiousness.
I guess the family got so used to jumping to conclusions without talking to each other that they continued to assume everything and anything without talking to each other resulting in them harbouring resentments and ill feelings for each other.
To say that there has been a "severe lack of communication and an abundance of miscommunication" seems to be an understatement!!

I had the feeling that she wasn't just going for an abortion but had left the home altogether. She took Eun Joo because she wasn't Sang Sik's biological child. And yes, left Eun hee behind

Ah, thanks for this clarification.I too had posted this question in one of my previous comments. It just wasn't ringing true that she took a 13 year old kid with her on the way to abort her third child.And she was drinking the medicine in plain sight of her. What was her plan if the miscarriage had triggered? Have a 13 year old witness that??Jeez.. But if your interpretation s true, that means she really intended to leave EH behind? I see her (possible) reasoning, but it's all so messed up. She doesn't want to leave behind a non bio child for SS to raise. But doesn't seem to have enough resources to take both kids away? Or may be she wanted to leave him with atleast one child as she knew he genuinely loved the children(?) But how would that have worked with him being on the road all the time to put food on the table and a 10-ish year old kid left on her own??? It was just a veryyyy bad judgement call for a parent no matter how they slice it.

In her defense, hormones early on in pregnancy may interfere with clear-headed thinking.
It boils down to desperate practicality- she is having trouble feeding two, ...a third could push them over the edge.

Oh yeah,I am not questioning her decision to abort. She was trying to get through life with someone she thought was cheating on her, the money had started to be halfen-ed and suddenly an extra mouth to feed and another child to bring into this mess of a marriage-must have felt overwhelming. When she 'confessed' to EJ about her actions, she basically does say that she saw the third child as confirming the life sentence.
I was just musing whether that was the real intent of that departure and if so, why she made the choice to take only the eldest and ultimately how harmful and ill thought-out her plans were for her 2 existing children.
You're probably right, the pregnancy hormonal cocktail and the intense stress of the situation could've affected her sense of judgement.
Props to her for ultimately choosing to come back but as we can see , a lott of damage was done to both kids from that decision+ the non-decision of both parents to pretend this didn't happen

I don't feel sorry for JS at all, she got herself into a mess, and luckily found a savior in SS. Years later she finds herself in a (manufactured) mess and tried to take the easy way out. Come on, I've been poor and had small children. and even I could figure out a way to bring some extra money into our household, by cleaning other people's houses while my children were at school. Are women really that dumb?

And once again there is that word, assumption, made by EJ about her mother's plans for that day, which is why up until EJ learns the truth from JS, she has a strong hatred for JS, and love for SS. EJ believed that her mother intended to commit suicide that day, and kill her too.

Initially, I thought that she decided to leave SS because she felt SS didn't love her anymore. She brought EJ with her because she was not his biological daughter, but I also thought that she was leaving for her ex and that was why she thought of aborting JW. Now that I read your comment, perhaps she wasn't leaving for her ex who was EJ's biological father but just to live with her eldest daughter somewhere.

When I initially started the drama I loved the easy banter between Chan Hyuk and Eun Hee and I wanted them to remain friends (that's what the creators intended for us I think to ship them as friends only at the point). Now that it's clear that the show is going the friends to lover route I'm all up for it because honestly both of them have managed to convince me!! I love the scenes between the two and there's even tension like yaayy.
When in the end of ep 10, Chan Hyuk purposely goes towards Eun Hee I wanted him desperately to just kiss her because ik otherwise these two will just laugh it off like they've been doing so for the last so many years. A kiss would make it concrete, like.no running away from the truth now!! But the show just hung us up there, sigh!

The parents caused so much pain for nothing. Sang-Sik always saw himself not being worthy to his wife because he was not educated. So he didn't dare to share what happened to her. I think he felt usefull and needed. His wife never expressed her feelings. But he was really thinking that Jin-Sook won't feel that something was off? Jin-Sook could have confronted him but she didn't. But the fact she thought to leave with only of her daughters was really awful. She could leave but you talk about it before and you take both daughters.

Chan-Hyeok is really good man. He cares about people but don't hesitate to talk like with Seo-Young or Ji-Woo when he said he told to her sister to stop to contact Chan-Hyeok. He told him it was not his place to do it.

Personally, I always thought that Chan-Hyeok and Eun-Hee were sharing feelings because of her reaction to the cheating. She scolded Chan-Hyeok and said nothing to her boyfriend who was just beside them not understanding what was happening. You have strong feelings like this only for people you love. So I'm so happy to see them to start to open about how they're really feeling about each other. I liked when Chan-Hyeok told her that he cares about Eun-Joo and Ji-Woo because of her but she was the first one.

I was surprised but happy that Eun-Joo did contact Chan-Hyeok to talk. She knows that her sister wasn't so happy to share her friend and I think it's why she shared how Eun-Hee felt in the past.

Geon-joo and Ha-Ra's drama is boring, they should solve their problems almong themselves and leave Eun-Hee alone!

Eun-Joo has seen her whole world that exploded. I hope she could restart like she wants without worrying what people might think of her.

Eun Joo! I simply can't get to dislike this girl. Her remarks are harsh but they aren't untrue. When she finally broke down in both ep 9 and 10, I liked CJH's acting even more. She is pretty but she doesn't cry prettily like so many other actresses, she just immersed herself in that scene. When you've had enough, it's finally time to speak what you were thinking and so she did. Her miscarriage, failed marriage along with a huge betrayal of trust and her basically being used in that marriage, alongside the hurt of thinking all your life that your mom tried to kill you and working for your family whipe everyone your age had the time of your life. To now finding out thay even the father you love isn't rlyour biological dad. Given all this I don't get how she is still sane and she isn't spitting hate left and right. I wouldn't call her comments hateful, yes harsh but most of then are true and said without any euphemism. To me EJ is more of a middle child. She has felt like an outsider in her family. Yes EH has the needs and attention seeking wants of a middle child but EJ in her loneliness seems more like a middle child than an elder one. This episode we found out that she has basically been a loner all her life too, without anyone by her side, not even friends. Totally get where this girl is coming from and loveee the details of her character.

Totally appreciated how CH didn't jump to kiss her despite CH and EH having amazibg chemistry. CH values consent and doing that would've been out of character. I could feel JW's pain this episode. People like SS exist who think that maybe someone out who has noone else can help them greatly and it is their responsibility. However, almost always you end up ignoring the ones who are actually your responsibility. They aren't paid much attention because you know they have an entire family anyway and SS knew that even if he gave him less time, atleast JW has a dad and that's him. But that hurt is permanent, the time that JW didn't get to spend with his dad at all.

GJ and HR are messy but let's not forget HR is the victim in this situation. I am glad EH held her ground and didn't take back that phone and ended it there. Even TH doesn't make me as angry as GJ. I want to get my hand in the screen and slap him. I've never felt like this for a character but lol I could really do this to him. GJ you sly fox.

Eun Joo was harsh but spoke the truth to Sang Sik. She was totally projecting when talking about him taking responsibility for someone’s life though. I kind of felt bad for Sang Sik right then for being the only one that didn’t know that Eun Joo knows the truth.

If only Sang Sik and Jin Soo were better at communicating maybe the whole family would be different. Their marriage was not built on a solid foundation, however.

Ji Woo broke my heart when he said that his dad never played catch with him.

Eun Joo broke my heart when she said the baby she miscarried would have been five years old.

I was firmly in the friends camp with Eun Hee and Chan Hyuk but they are winning me over to friends to lovers now.

Sang Shik, I didn't feel bad for him in this episode. If we put Jin Sook and Sang Shik's version of the situation side by side, Sang Shik out of guilt and fear of looking like a failure in front of the wife he already felt inferior to chose to spend both money and quality time with Young Shik's family. This is not compensation, its over compensation. Money would be red flag, but there were calls, he was hanging out with Young Shik and his family actively and Jin Sook thought that it was a full blown affair. And Eun Joo is right, he was financially and otherwise in no position to take on that sort of responsibility. Jin Sook should have confronted Sang Shik. But most people don't remember that Jin Sook got abandoned by the only family she knew all her life prior to finding Sang Shik. She probably already had some deep seated scars from that. In hindsight, her confronting him would have saved both and their families life time of misery. But since the foundation of their marriage was uneven and based on crisis, not mutual love...it wasn't strong enough to withstand these secrets. So, their wounds festered, spread to their kids. Now Eun Joo, she was more calm this episode and seems to be getting calmer. She did the right thing. She also needs to put some physical distance between her and her to be ex-husband. I don't know how she is still living in that house that probably is a bitter reminder of all the lies and deceit. Chan Hyuk, I hope he takes the first step where Eun Hee may hesitate. Hara and the boss can go to hell. Those immature brats deserve each other.

*JW broke my heart this ep when he asked why YS was allowed a dad when he wasn't. Yes, SS.. it's nice you played catch with the kid you injured for life, but you chose to do that at the expense of the child you had at home? JW once again was kind hearted to a fault. He quickly pressed down his feelings of betrayal to worry about his dad.Reminds me of how his main emotion after finding outabout EJ's parentage was guilt over how he had unknowingly liked his full sibling more than his half sibling. Now I am also dreading him finding out about the abortion. Hope his gf (if she exists) s good for him cz this guy deserves some undivided love and attention.
*@neener.. unfortunately, it looks like your hunch about Kyng Ok was true! The way she kept throwing pointed barbs and looks at EH this EP, ugh she definitely knew about that unholy triangle. It's a shame coz I really dug EH-KO being office weirdos. Wonder if she felt betrayed about EH hiding the relationship and decided to team up with HR to bring her down a peg? But she had claimed to not like HR and looked to genuinely adore EH! Interested to see what her angle is here.
*Wow, HR and GJ are really made for each other. Him with the 'slooowly drifting apart' bit and her with the 'slightly cheating' 🙄 He seems to be the more messed up one though. HR can go off with her eff'd up superior attitude but in her bid to leave some parting wounds, she did clue in EH about the potential office shutdown, so ha! Here I was thinking atleast GJ cares about EH's talent,but nope! Dude's probably trying to lessen his guilt by suggesting alternate careers for her,since ye know, he's gonna put her out of a job soon. Can't wait to see what gems he comes up with to rationalize those lies by ommision.

I kinda understand SS for his bad decision to keep the accident and how he supported another family a secret from his family. I don't agree with his choice ofc, but I could understand that such decision could be made from a person with inferiority complex such as SS. Having said that, I think that was also the beginning of all these unsaid things, secrets, miscommunication, misunderstanding, lack of communication in the family. That is a tragedy indeed.

I felt for Jin Sook. I want to echo SS's question that how could her tolerate a guy like him? From her situation, one can just say that she is the direct victim of this secret. She didn't know why SS had changed, and she had to endure the feeling of being unloved for years. That was just sad. I understand her pretty well and will totally be on her side if she decides to leave SS. The woman deserves peace in her life. If SS cannot make better judgements, this person is hard to live with.

EJ had my heart when he told CH about EH. I was surprised to see her loving expressions in that scene tbh. She knew her sister well, and didn't hesitate once she decided that CH should know about her sister's feelings towards him (even though it was said in the past tense.) The woman has been though a lot. I can relate to her character, and I think I'm somewhat proud of her.

What I love the most in this whole mess of a show is CH and EH. They are lovely together. The relationship and chemistry between them feels natural and relaxed. It doesn't have to be good all the time, but isn't it good to be able to trust someone so genuinely you can just be yourself with him/her? I feel like this kind of relationships is good because it isn't about infatuation which might vanish one day, but it's more like water or air -something that you don't normally realize it's there but it's so essential for your well-being.

If I like Kdrama and their crazy love stories, it's nice to see one who looks sane and not just two people from 2 different worlds wondering why they're falling in love with each other.

SS got an ingrate for a wife. Must be an atrocious mother to the children too. She was rescued from the jaws of public shame and humiliation, yet she has the nerve to harbor suspicions on a hardworking faithful husband. If only she has faith in him.

No wonder the family has 3 resentful and ungrateful children who were provided with housing, food and social status (family name) as a functional family unit. The father never went to college but managed to earn a living and get this family a decent apartment, send them all to school; even saved money for EJ.

Nonetheless, the over-mothered eldest daughter Eun-Joo grew up resentful and bitter...and will be, for life. The second daughter is a little decent but an easy prey (lay) for men like her boss. The youngest son still living in his mothers basement needs to grow up fast. There is something wrong with the mothering of these ungrateful children.

The father has the right to hide his generosity and altruistic intent for that injured boy and support him as a secret other family. He is proving to be a better son, albeit adopted, than the other 3. Had he revealed or consulted his ungrateful wife...it will not go down well and become a reason to curse him even more, especially when there are problems at home, conflicts and hardships (like short on cash, missed obligation, coming home late...etc) .

Now that they all know the family secret...they should all appreciate him for this single act kindness. Why, he even dotes more on a child (EJ) he does not own. He was right to live with the grateful son instead, while his wife and 3 kids can go to hell. Sook is one whiny wife and a bad mama....no wonder they are in a big mess.

He has even advanced in his career: He is an owner-operator- and that is one very fine tractor that he drives. He is, in other words, a small business owner who works very long hours but, as a result, earns as much income as a highly educated corporate manager or, some years, even a vice president. Economically he has overcome his lack of an education. In short, JS should be very proud of her husband because he is not not just a 'mere' truckdriver. He does have a big payment on his tractor (there is a reason those loans are called "truck mortgages") but his net income is still substantial.

When I started this one, on the 1st and 2nd episode it really felt like a really well-written promising family drama that would wring your tears. This really hooked me. But Sangshik's amnesia happened and I really don't know where this drama was going. In a way, it does feel like makjang so I had to lower my expectation. YET, I KNOW I love this one more than I should.

I don't know how to desribe it but I guess, a well-written Makjang is actually as good as every other well-written drama. I feel like I'm supposed to be mad at all these amnesia, car crash-scare, and birth secret but I'm not? Which I find weird? lmao.

Weirdly, romance part is what usually kept me going on any family drama but with this one, I don't care about Geonjoo, and I know Eunhee will always got Chanhyuk by her side anyway (and they like each other duh) so I really got no concern on that front. But these family...... gah I feel like they really just need to sit down and talk for hours and make sure they no longer have any secret between each other kajsfhjadhaf.

I never believed SS had cheated on JS although he sort of cheated on his family. He owed YoungShik's family a lot (not going to prison to start with), but if only he had told his wife, I'm pretty sure they would have found a solution.

I felt really sorry about JiWoo. Even before his outburst, I was so sorry for him. As EJ and EH talked later, he didn't have happy memories of his parents together like the sisters have. He's grown up with distant parents, and then he discovers his dad has another son and he's probably spent more time with that YS than with him. I was sad, and also angry. JiWoo is by far my favorite character in the drama. It felt really wrong.

And regarding CH and EH, at least I see that romantic connection!! I hadn't seen it before and now I'm totally on board that ship!! I know I said before I'd rather them remain friends, but I'm not there anymore, and (as always) KJS is the one to blame.
