The proverbial other shoe has finally dropped for Shin Ae, and in all honesty, I don’t know why the family kept this secret from her. Granted, the woman may be self-centered and all, but as the daughter, she should have been the first one to be told of her mother’s medical condition once Chul Soo became aware of the diagnosis. Hmmm…I guess we’ll see this Sunday how Shin Ae reacts to her discovery…

“다애와 다정은 철수가 순옥을 잘 요양 할 수 있도록 요양 전문 학원을 보내주고, 함께 순옥의 요양을 돕는다. 한편, 순옥에게 돈을 받으려고 순옥의 집을 찾아온 신애는 순옥 몰래 서랍을 뒤지다 철수의 병상일지를 보게 되는데…”
English Translation: By Snoopy’s Twinkie
“Da Ae and Da Jung enroll Chul Soo (Grandfather) in a recognized nursing-care program so that he can learn to take better care of Soon Ok (Grandmother), and the two of them help him take care of her. Meanwhile, Shin Ae goes to visit her mother to borrow money and secretly searches her parents’ cabinet drawer behind Soon Ok’s back only to discover Chul Soo’s journal recording Soon Ok’s medical care…”
My only concern as Shin Ae learns of her mother’s condition is that traumatic discovery doesn’t become all about her. Somehow, I can see Shin Ae throwing a hissy fit about how no one told her and how she’ll suffer because of her mother’s condition instead of putting aside her childishness and rallying to her mother’s aid.
But then again, perhaps I’m underestimating Shin Ae…after all, we only have a certain number of episodes left in the series.
My hope is that this becomes a wake-up call for our
narcissistic self-involved mother and that she finally sees what she needs to see. We’ve got 12 episodes left…Here’s hoping! *fingers crossed*
Oh, as for So Yi, let’s hope that she goes FAR. FAR. AWAY!
