Naoki and Kotoko are back! I am so grateful for this special episode as I have missed them since Season 1 ~ Enjoy this episode while waiting for Season 2.
Our couple is aboard a plane – direction Okinawa for they honeymoon. Naoki pretends to sleep while Kotoko tries to be fancy and speak English when the stewardess asks her what she wants to drink. Kotoko’s cute and broken English draws laughter from one of her neighbors.
Naoki also comments on Kotoko speaking English. Why is she trying so hard? This is only a trip to Okinawa. Kotoko explains that it’s her first time flying and goes on a rant… She also starts snapping pictures of Naoki, who is always being a party pooper – not smiling in the pictures and deciding to take a nap instead.
It’s A Girl deals with the issues of selective abortion and the murder of girls in China and India. Viewers are taken to rural and urban areas where they see the faith faced by many girls.
The documentary opens with the story of an Indian woman who explains how she killed her daughter soon after her birth. Some in India view girls as worthless since they are bond to leave their family once they get married. Plus, when a girl gets married her family needs to pay a dowry – a burden for poor families.
In China, viewers learn about a couple who defied the Once Child Policy by having three children. Since all three children ended up being girls, relatives of the couple encouraged them to get rid of the second and third child. The couple refused, and to escape the authorities in charge of enforcing the One Child Policy, they moved somewhere else. They work in a factory and send money to support their children who were left behind. It’s important to note that the children do not live together as different relatives take care of them.
The documentary is heartbreaking and sometimes infuriating especially when you listen to how some men view women. I do not want to spoil it so I have included the link to the trailer. The documentary is also available on Netflix. Here is also a link to the official website of It’s A Girl! On the website, you have access to additional information and updates on some of the people mentioned in the documentary.
Phu keeps texting Toei without answer: “I can’t stop thinking about you” or “I am sorry”. He knows that she sees the messages (Facebook messaging), and that she just doesn’t want to reply. To make things worst, Thee’s absence is felt too.
Phu ends up going to Toei’s house at night. When Toei opens the gate, he apologizes for showing up like this. He then starts apologizing. He shouldn’t have made a big deal of her friendship with Tar. The more Phu keeps talking, the more Toei looks crestfallen. With tears in her eyes, Toei tells Phu that certain things can’t change. He keeps begging her, but she tells him they should break up. Toei then closes the gate and leaves him outside begging.
Original Title: 연애 말고 결혼
Joo Jang Mi is in her late twenties-early thirties and like a lot of women at that age she feels the need to find her husband. She first sets her eyes on Lee Hoon Dong. Jang Mi and Hoon Dong have been seeing each other for quite some time now, but it’s always been in shady places. They are not official yet and that is something Jang Mi is trying to set straight. When Jang Mi introduces the topic of a more serious and steady relationship, Hoon Dong panics and runs! Hoon Doong starts avoiding Jang Mi hardcore – not picking up his phone, running away when he sees her, and the worst: asking his friend Gong Ki Tae to help him get rid of Jang Mi.
Jang Mi chasing after Hoon Doong gets her a reputation of stalker + a little trip to court where she faces STALKING charges T___T.
