I intended to stop watching this K drama after seeing how badly the three children, all adults, of a widower were treating their father. I couldn’t stand their attitude. So unfilial.
The doctor son especially is so cold and blames his poverty vis-a-vis other doctors – his lack of credentials and connections – to their sorry financial state – again relative to his co-doctors. When this point was raised, I wondered whether my own son also has similar feelings – for one we can’t afford to send him abroad to get an MBA from an Ivy League school. It feels awful and how I wish it were otherwise, but there it is. Anyway, to go back to the K drama.
When the doctor-son married his way of looking at his family, particularly his dad, took on a bizarre note, bizarre from my POV, that is. He now wanted his hands on his dad’s property upon the advice of the mother–in-law. Uggh.
Until Part 3 of Episode 24, the father was taking things quietly. Then the explosion. I hope he sticks to it although the daughter of the aunt whom the siblings under-appreciated saw things from a different light when one of the siblings said they’d give the aunt money. Like a tutee puts it “People act funny when there’s talk about money”
On a less serious note, I found one scene off-putting for etiquettal reasons.
The step brothers arrived home for dinner, which was laid out formally. One of the dishes was contained in a cooker with a cover. The mother removed the cover and guess where she put it?
On one of the dining table seats.
Horrors. Emily Post would have been aghast.
Amy Vanderbilt would have been disgusted.
Either or both might have fainted. Like so.
