Episode 1 is to fool you guys. The cute, the perfect meeting, and the sexy night. All is just a brief dream-like sequence in the heroine’s life as she escaped the hell trap in Seoul. Now that she’s back, episode 2 is a much better indication of the tone for the rest of this series. Which is full of angst, bad decisions, and psychotic behaviors. Hopefully, the writer intends for a lot of character growth. Because so far, he/she fails at balancing the light and dark moments.
Ah, I’m so torn about this drama. There is one aspect that I really love (the three leads) and A LOT that I wish is cut down. It seems like the writer enjoys writing about unhappy people. Most of her male characters are cheating, decadent scoundrels who live believing that their wives should grovel beneath their feet. And the women, why? WHY submit yourself to such a suffocating life? Cut the drama, give me the cute!
Interesting line-up for the males. We have 2 experienced second-lead heart breakers. All because of their character status – never evaar getting the girl. Except Lee Sang Woo has done it before. Sometimes I wonder if Do Yoon fans from Feast of the Gods still hang around here, still bitter and upset (I know I am)! In Goddess of Marriage, the main male lead is not really clear yet so fans from both side can still breathe, just prepare Kleenex and duct tape, for your eyes and heart. The female lead lands in Nam Sang Mi’s hands and I’m neutral with her. She’s cool but lacks the screen presence to pull me in. The story will follow her and other ladies as they love and discover the not-so-cool side of marriage. Of course, you can’t forget about the entangled love triangles. Isn’t all premise like this? One day you’re jogging along a flower-filled road, and then Mr. Sunshine pops up from behind? 😉
Lee Sang Woo: “Let’s make a life-long promise?”
Lee Sang Woo: “Never accept another role from this writer.”
Yuri: “That’s what I’m thinking as well! Fans, her name is Jo Eun Jung.”
Say it with me guys, “Awwwwwwwwww!” These two have come a long way to reach this moment. I’m so glad the writer didn’t drag out the Haemil storyline and allows Joon Young to step up her game. Love how she bites down her bottom lip, like she’s absorbing his pain, hoping to lessen it any way she could.
FOLKS! NO SPOILERS! OH GOSH………..WHY WHY WHY!! Don’t say a whisper about the ending!!!
Well, she looks happy. 😛 I can’t believe I trudged through this hour expecting some big event…only to find out it happened in the last 3 minutes. Our slowpoke becomes the Swoop-in Kissing Angel. For those who absolutely dislike the family drama, I suggest you watch the last 3 minutes to appease your growing frustration with the writer.
As for In Joo, she lost her screws mid-way through this episode. You can see her sporting a new curly hairstyle. Girl gone wild.
I want to dedicate this song “Marry the Night” to In Joo. Those who understand the meaning behind the song would know why. She’s the star of this episode. From her desperation to the disintegration of her spirit, I want her to be happy for who she is and stop letting others distort her value as a person. The name Ha In Joo turns out to be a curse more than a blessing, after all.
Arg. I’m shipping In Woo to the rehabilitating center for now. In Joo can join him later. Seriously, this dude gets me all worked up over his way of delivering his pent-up frustration. The only way he knows how to manage his temper is by attacking people he knows doesn’t fight back. First, he barked cruel words at In Joo, calling her less than a human being. Hello? She was five and all you could do was torture her emotionally like that? And in this episode, he punched mah boy twice because Mother amnesia refused to acknowledge Joon Young? For someone who doesn’t know the whole truth, he’s acting like an irritating know-it-all. Had I been Do Yoon, In Woo would be flying across Arirang, landing himself in one of those precious golden sauce pot! Even though Do Yoon did look cool and hot with a busted lip. Still, no one dares put a dent in that piece of artwork. Rage!!
