If someone knows where this show is heading I would love to be enlightened. I am so mad right now.
This show started off great – like so many dramas. Now, all the characters are acting out. I am infuriated by how the Park family and Myung Hi are acting toward Cha Ki Young and Dan. What I saw in this show was the story of two women that both aimed for happiness. Myung Hi choose to tie herself to a man and gain status. She dropped her career plans and started a life of servitude. Mistreated at the beginning, she is still mistreated by in her in-laws. Myung Hi’s only hope was the child she was carrying, but her miscarriage put an end to her dreams. Myung Hi didn’t have an heir for the Park family so I guess that’s when she thought that accepting Dan as her son could save her. I never liked Myung Hi’s character. I have yet to find something positive about her.
Cha Ki Young choose to have her child despite the odds. She knew that it would mean the end of her career and a series of hardships. I love her character because it defies traditional gender roles. As a woman, she chooses what she thinks is best. She ignores what society dictates unlike Myung Hi – getting married, abandoning your career, giving your all to your husband and his family.
