I really like how kt mom is methodically breaking down jang mi character. I think that this is such an important turning point for our leads though. But she just discovered what she really wants is connection, and she isn't getting that from anyone in her family or close to her. Even though she brought it on herself. She's probably attracted to lighthearted, superficial men because of her parent's incompatible relationship.
Behind Jang-mi, the mothers come out and call to her. Go on, kids, get married and settle down in the seaside town! You know, I hate how manipulative this lady is, but I have to give her props for being good at it. So Jang Mi must have felt incredibly betrayed. She likes interfering because she gets attention and makes her feel less alone because in effect she's needed. Let me call you back when I'm done. Many people don't want to fight. Ki-tae bikes as far as he can, Jang-mi complaining the whole time, until he finally runs out of steam on a steep hill.
Eff you and your crazy-ass family! Mom has already chosen a gown and literally shoves Jang-mi to the dressing room. Jang-mi tries calling Ki-tae again for a rescue, and Se-ah finds his phone where he left it at the gym. She says that she will take Jang-mi to do everything that needs doing. The only thing that came from that scene was kt hurt feelings from seeing her run away from him. What if you spill something on it? Nor is it right to blame Jang Mi for Hoondong's childish ways. Yeo-reum accuses Ki-tae of being jealous, but Ki-tae insists he was just being chivalrous to let the woman use his bed.
I'm not condoning her actions but it is a clever way. Ki-tae bristles even more, and Yeo-reum seems to take pleasure in detailing all the couple-y things he plans to do with Jang-mi and watching Ki-tae get flustered. Wealthy plastic surgeon Gong Ki Tae is a successful and happy bachelor who does not want to find himself a wife. She's been having a few horrible days of dealing with Ki-tae's mother and all Ki-tae, who should know better than anyone else how impossible it is to escape once the woman decides to control you, only offers criticisms and absenteeism. He knows exactly what she wants to hear, but it also oddly makes him feel very surface-deep for some reason.
On Jang-mi's part as well, i think she's not really in love with Yeo-rum, he's just a breath of fresh air and she's having fun but not really in love because when she's with him, its like she's not her total self unlike when she's with Ki-tae. While I believe that people deserve respect no matter what, I can see why a person like Ki-tae would have a hard time respecting a girl who constantly acts like a doormat to get people to like her. No, I don't think he's a forever soulmate, but he's certainly the right guy for her to pick at this point in the drama. These men did or are doing terrible things done entirely out of their own autonomy. The theme is evolving nicely, isn't it? She is willing to protect others, and stands up for herself and others. I think that Ki-tae simply needs to learn a little more about saying and doing what Jang-mi needs once in awhile, instead of just saying whats on his mind. She asks for him to pay her back for the wedding gifts she bought, and a stunned Ki-tae tells Yeo-reum that she must want to marry him for real.
I was busting a gut from the start of this episode. But I have faith they can do it. They accuse each other of being rude and unmannerly, and Jang-mi goes to her room for some peace. His criticism is harsh but she really needs to follow through with wat he says jangeusu most definately she was trying to run away from the situation. It really adds another layer to compare and contrast the couples' parents and their relationships to each. How do you get your meddlesome family off your back? People who speak truth to power tend to alienate. She must be a heavy sleeper because he just dumped her on the bed, but went back to cover her with the blanket.
If a viewer is halfway through the show's run and they still can't reconcile themselves to Jang Mi being a pushover and Gi Tae being emotionally backward, then maybe it's just a case that this isn't the show for them. Gong Ki Tae is a successful bachelor who keeps getting pressured by his family to settle down. At the memorial service and at the mall. Gi Tae pales in comparison - last episode should have been the last straw with him to have it out with his mother but he takes his anger out on JangMi - No Way! I was so surprised when I looked her up. Jang-mi and Ki-tae have not professed their feelings in fact, I have yet to see more recent signs from Jang-mi of her feelings , his mom has gotten worse sadly, and I agree that her character would be wasted if she continues down this typical mother-in-law path , second-lead guy remains uninteresting and ineffectual take him out, and I wouldn't even notice , and background characters have seemingly disappeared even resident bitch, Se-ah, had little screen time.
I like that the scene isn't concrete, I'm assuming the next episode will clear it up. Ki-tae shoves Yeo-reum to the floor and hugs himself in horror, but Yeo-reum only seems mildly surprised, thinking he was spooning with Jang-mi. Jang-mi flees out into the street just as Ki-tae and Se-ah arrive at the dress shop. I'll meet you after work or on my day off. I am guessing that the drama will push him in the right direction.
As such, every one of her decisions without fail turned into a social disaster. It's a tumultuous way of being, but I think it's actually awesome and exactly what Ki-tae's family needs. I understand the other characters not knowing his true feelings, but the audience is just as in the dark. If she was truthful and admitted that she was hurt it would be a different story. She will be known, and that will be infinitely more satisfying than cycling through countless superficial relationships.
I think he just decided that he could coast into it and everything would be fine. Trust me, you are not the only one. And who seems to as of now interest our heroine a hella lot more than the lead! Mom then wants to see the bedroom and luckily, Yeo-reum hears her coming in time to hide behind the bed. Such a person manages his affairs with exemplary neatness and efficiency, but staying alone is the only way to maintain it. You weren't ever going to end this, were you? But yeah, I get that it's a drama so they want the pretty shot of her running out in her wedding dress, and the fact that it'd be very uneventful and boring if she just simply ignored all of her mother-in-law's phone calls throughout the episode.
