so yeon my daughter
Titled "Romeo and Juliet," this episode grabbed our leads" usual family dynamic and took it apart. Dal Po and In Ha come to a point when they begin to realize that they"re not really uncle and niece, but rather people from different families, aspiring reporters with rivaling beliefs, and potential love interests. Awww yeahh.
As a fan of the William Shakespeare classic (Weird right? We exist), I get annoyed with loose "Romeo and Juliet" comparisons in pop culture very easily. The allusion kind of works in this episode, though, because as a title, it"s a nice reminder for the viewers that our two leads come from two families that should be "enemies" in a sense. In Ha is the daughter of the reporter whom Dal Po blames for destroying his once happy family
The episodes keep improving as we get better acquainted with both our lovable main leads and their sad family dynamics.
This episode was a particularly emotional, heartbreaking one for me. I"m a sucker for parent-related issues, and when we"re shown how Dal Po and In Ha are denied the parental love they so desperately want, it strikes a chord within me.
This episode is titled "Snow Queen," and it appears that "Snow Queen" is none other than In Ha"s ice-cold mother, Cha Ok. I like how this episode was structured around Cha Ok--how it showed more of her work ethic, her interactions with her daughter, and how much of a powerful influence she is on both of our lead characters. While she can inspire or break In Ha"s will to become a reporter, she can fuel Dal Po to want to become a reporter himself in defiance of Cha Ok"s own work

Lee Je-hoon is about to be ruined.
On the eighteenth episode of the SBS drama "Secret Door", Lee Seon (Lee Je-hoon) was caught for hiding Seo Ji-dam (Yoon So-hee) in the palace.
Kim Sang-ro (Kim Ha-gyoon) smiled when he heard Seo Ji-dam was hiding in the palace. If Lee Seon"s plan of hiding his enemy"s daughter in the palace was revealed, it"d be the end of his political career.
Court lady Hye-kyeong realized what was going to happen and asked her father, Hong Bong-han (Kim Myeong-gook) for help. However, he became angry and questioned, "How did you get involved in this situation when the Noron are trying to bring down the Majesty? How could you stoop so low? Who made you this way?"
Lee Seon didn"t know what was going on; he was kind to Seo Ji-dam till the end
Since actor Kim Sang-kyeong debuted in 1998, he has built up a solemn image for himself by acting in serious films like "Memories of Murder" and "May 18" as well as the drama series "The Great King Sejong".However, the 43-year-old actor has unexpectedly attempted to take a goofier route lately. In the KBS weekend drama "This Is Family", which recently recorded an average viewership rating of 30 percent, Kim plays Tae-joo, a manager of a large company who is far from sharp. And in soon-to-be-released film "Dad for Rent", Kim plays libertine dad Tae-man, who has been supported by his wife for 10 years. No longer able to put up with him, his daughter makes him available for rent on an auction site so that he can cover fatherly duties for those who don"t have a dad.Having gone through a similar renaissance on both the small and silver screen, Kim said in a recent interview with the JoongAng Ilbo, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, that he feels "a sense of freedom"

The long-awaited Korean drama of the winter season has arrived! Not only is it Lee Jong Suk’s return to the small screen after playing genius surgeon in Doctor Stranger (although I much preferred “I Can Hear Your Voice“), but it’s also that of Park Shin Hye after the highly popular “The Heirs.” Side Note: Interestingly enough, it was Kim Woo Bin who had been proposed the lead role but, due to scheduling conflicts, was forced to decline. Who here would have preferred to see Kim Woo Bin and Park Shin Hye’s sizzling chemistry instead? I think this is a close call…
The first episode starts with Choi Dal Po (Lee Jong Suk) skipping school to make his big entry on a televised game show where he has to answer questions correctly against one of his classmates
The previous episode of “Birth of a Beauty“ provided the comedy relief which would prove to be the calm before the storm. Sa Ra discovers the true cause of Sa Geum Ran’s accident. Her in-laws, and her cheating husband, Kang Joon, are getting away with blood on their hands. Tae Hee finds more connection once he learns his first love, Chae Yeon, isn’t the lovely lady he thought he know. Vengeance is arriving soon and punishment will be extremely severe for sinners.1. A painful truth
As she suspected, Sa Ra learns that she is indeed the victim of a shady conspiracy: There was a fabricated will claiming that the nature of her accident was due to suicide. Sa Ra requested help to her sponsor, Tae Hee, who is initially reluctant
“The Legendary Witch” is a tale of four women who meet in prison. Shim Bok Nyeo (Go Doo Shim) is the leader and mistress of their cell, serving for life due to familicide by arson. She is a prison veteran of 30 years. Seo Mi O (Ha Yeon Soo) is a previous CF model and a mother, sentenced to two years for attempted murder. Son Poong Geum (Oh Hyun Kyung) is in prison for the third time for fraud and the self-proclaimed “sex symbol of Korea Women’s Penitentiary.” And the newbie of the group, Moon Soo In (Han Ji Hye), has been sentenced to two years for dereliction of duty and embezzlement.
However, it seems they have already had their lives entangled by a series of events one year ago. Cue flashback (a very long flashback—the end of episode 2 is still a flashback)
In a recent interview with the Chosun Ilbo, actress Park Si Yeon and actor Bae Soo Bin discussed their thoughts on marriage and single motherhood.
They spoke about these topics because they play characters that explore them in the drama "The Greatest Marriage," which began on Sept. 27.
In the drama she plays Cha Ki Young, a confident news anchorwoman who chooses to become a single mother. She becomes pregnant but doesn"t want to get married. So when she breaks up with her boyfriend, who is not ready to have a child, she decides she will raise their child alone.
"In the past it was socially unacceptable to be a single mother," Park told the Chosun Ilbo. "But things are changing little by little."
Both Park and Bae are new parents in real life
Sin Se-kyeong consumed a great amount of food.
On the fifth episode of the KBS 2TV drama "Blade Man", Son Se-dong (Sin Se-kyeong) accepted all the food Tae-hee"s (Han Eun-jeong) mother gave to her as she thought her daughter had returned.
Se-dong"s tummy bloated, as Tae-hee"s mother who had Alzheimer"s, fed her more and more food. Se-dong couldn"t bear to say no to a mother who thinks she"s her daughter, who in fact has passed away.
However, Joo Hong-bin (Lee Dong-wook) who watched her eat, said to her, "It was shocking and terrifying at the same time. Are you human? You looked like a bear, eating as much meat as you could".
Meanwhile, "Blade Man" is about a man whose body stuck out with sharp knives due to his painful past and a woman who turns him into a real human
Jeon So-min found out about Jeong Woong-in, her birth father.
On the twenty-seventh episode of the SBS weekend drama "Endless Love", Kim Se-kyeong (Jeon So-min) was shocked to find out that Park Yeong-tae (Jeong Woong-in) was her father.
Kim Se-kyeong had gone to get the secret ledger for her brother Kim Tae-kyeong (Kim Joon). Min Hye-rin (Shim Hye-jin) and Park Yeong-tae"s sudden appearance made her hide.
Not knowing she was there, Park Yeong-tae told Min Hye-rin, "I will leave with Se-kyeong myself. She is my daughter. Leaving her with you, I think she"ll be taken away by Han Gwang-cheol (Jeong Kyeong-ho)".
Min Hye-rin said, "She suspects you and me of his accident. Take her away as soon as you can". Park Yeong-tae said, "She"s smart as she takes after me"
So Joseon Gunman finally comes to an end, after a two-episode extension. And the one question I asked myself at the end was, how many people died?
Let’s see — Hye-won died, Merchant Choi died, Ho-kyung died, Adminstrator Jung died, Kanemaru died, Sang-chu died. While such a bloodbath usually serve no purpose other than to make an impression on the audience, I appreciate that all these deaths had a narrative purpose and motivation for it.
For me, Hye-won’s death was just — oof — crushing to watch. Her character especially shined in the first portion of the drama, where she was an independent and confident woman, capable of making her own fate
