Oh I loved how he brought the Churchill thing back. Episode 12 by LollyPip. Cha Seung-jo sees Han Se-kyung leaving unhappily when he is about to go home. I like the contrast between Han Se’s and Yoon Joo’s stories. I’m a guy and am pretty much just like Seung-Jo except I wasn’t born into it. Yoon-joo invites him to her humble cramped apartment. Just a lot of staring and big eyes.
This is like the only drama I’ve seen that revolves so much around money and I love it. The Gilded Age, the global wealth gap before the Great Depresson, it is all there. Agree that it was a satisfying ending. See, you’re not alone. I hadn’t thought of the split screens symbolizing the Cheshire cat, though I figured TH was never the intended White Rabbit to begin with. The cast was wonderful.

I always enjoy reading your recaps but this is the first time i write comment. Yes, there are not so nice things in the world, but there are also fabulous things, and you can focus on the great things, and strive for them, and be happy without having to resort to dreams to keep your spirits up.
I may not have seen that many compared to most of you, anyhow, I don’t think there’s a korean drama with so many layers to peal and cheomgdamdong. Episode 3 was simply amazing at the insight into someone like me and PSH just nailed it.
After much struggling, Se-kyung finally lands a job as a designer at GN Fashion, an apparel company in ritzy, image-conscious Cheongdam-dong a small, insular, and particularly posh neighborhood in Seoul ‘s Gangnam District. Might I suggest that you do a a whole character analyses!
Looking forward to everyone in their next sijopsis. So I give it an A for trying. I admit the pace could have been picked up a bit, but overall it was good imo. While Seung-jo finds loving the hardest thing to do, Se-kyung finds living sinopais hardest.
That actually makes Cha Seung-joo very happy. I got to care about most of the characters, but I’m sad not all of them were used to their full potential. Was the ending a fantasy, conjured by a disenchanted “still angry” Se Kyung wearily lugging her heavy boxes symbolising the burdens of lifedragging herself through the cold corridors of sinospis indifferent world day after day after day?
I like the contrast between Han Se’s and Yoon Joo’s stories. I remember now the scene with the two girls and the red coulour and I actually found it pretty and “showing” back to the novel.
I’ve been a long time fan of Moon, chheongdamdong maybe biased, but her acting didn’t feel one note to me. I could not relate to her.

I’ve not seen her other projects either, but I liked her here. Of course, I understand the tragic situation from the beginning when a person dies due to lack of money for treatment, but still I never though it was necessary for Se Hyung to go to the extrme of becoming part of the world of the richest.
Talk about beating it over my head again and again. Seo-young asks Yeon-hee not to share any personal info about her at work, and Yeon-hee readily agrees. She has no one to give her career a jump start. They should have spent more time on her and how she worked hard for every bit of her past successes, they have to spend less alic on the previous boyfriend, they need to show us her heart.

But on the other hand, I think the show was really uneven in terms of tone and acting. Se-kyung delivers a box to the waiting messenger man at the lobby, and finds Seung-jo standing there. I totally agree that Seung-jo was unrealistic. The general ending wasn’t too bad. During the dance ball, Han Se-kyung meets Cha Seung-jo, still unaware of Cha Seung-jo’s real identity; she asks to see the president of Artemis.
Sun-woo sees the two of them talking together. So Han Se-kyung then decides to work part-time at the restaurant where Tommy Hong usually goes to in order to catch his attention.
What I love most about this drama is that it makes you so self-reflexive and actually think about your own belief system, which is not something you expect when you want a light and fluffy rom com. I really enjoyed this drama, and I liked the ending, too. They uploaded the video too. The anger is back. I thought everyone did a wonderful job with their characters.
Seung-jo has his suspicions….
What better way to do that than make a dream world of your own at your own house with someone you love. She’s a tiny girl but very talented.
I especially like how Seung-jo is trying to seek out all the answers himself. When Han Se-kyung returns home, she sees that her parents are chasing after her sister, Han Se-jin.
No matter how they want to advertise the variety of coats, it’s just not right Thank you for the recep. On her way, she meets Cha Seung-jo. Her lack of chemistry with PSH and inability to do a romantic scene was particularly hard to ignore in that last kiss in the lobby of that office building with the spinning camera. Oh, I’d forgotten about that Churchill redux!
And why in the world did the entire family just tiptoe so much around The Dad? And I don’t even understand why did she have to become a gold digger since she knew Seung Jo loved her back already.
They live in their own private mansion, happily together. I like seeing people make believable mistakes and do their best to rectify them. I luuuvvv spoiler as well. I learned a few things from the show too. Episode 12 by LollyPip. I really enjoyed the last episode, because it was satisfying in showing us the growth of the characters over some time without feeling too rushed. He didn’t have much to say and work with in my girl I’m also glad that Seung Jo is being called to the carpet a little more.
I hate it how “bad” characters in dramas are never bad. She was cute and annoying in her last drama, a proper bitch in Cinderella sister
