Seoyoung My Daughter – Episode 31-32


The dominoes are finally starting to fall, as we knew they must.

Sung Jae’s birth secret is unveiled at last – partly. But who’s the daddy? His adopted father seemed genuinely surprised by the baby on his doorstep, and his exec’s interest in Sung Jae (Lee Jung Shin), so I suspect the cliffhanger ending will turn out to be the exec’s refusal to tell them who the biological father is. Unless he slept with her when drunk and doesn’t even remember. I wouldn’t put it past him.

Although we saw this birth secret coming since early episodes of Seoyoung My Daughter, I confess I didn’t foresee it would be the plot twist that keeps Seo Young (Lee Bo Young) and Woo Jae (Lee Sang Yoon) living together after the d-word has been spoken.

Woo Jae is obviously puzzled by her willingness to let him go. I, on the other hand, am deeply relieved. Seoyoung My Daughter’s ration of break-up resistance was drained to the last drop by Mi Kyung (Park Jung Ah), plus Woo Jae’s been such a jerk, I wouldn’t like to see Seo Young abasing herself. She isn’t the only one with things to apologize for. At least she seems to be more centered now that the worst has happened. Yet still so clueless. Seriously??

But if their marriage collapses, Sang Woo’s reason for marrying Ho Jeong (Choi Yoon Young) goes with it. Is there such a thing as annulment in Korea? After they rented such a nice new place. How was Sang Woo ever able to afford that on a resident’s pay?

Sang Woo (Park Hae Jin) seemed taken aback that Ho Jeong didn’t spend the wedding night with him. What exactly was he expecting, I wonder? And what are we to infer from the fact that they now sleep 4 feet apart in the same bed? In Kdrama, this could signify anything from satisfactory consummation to total estrangement.

Poor Ji Seon (Kim Hye Ok). Maybe it would be better for her if Sang Jae did find out, since I doubt it will impact their relationship at all. If they aren’t biologically related, they should be. I’d even be inclined to believe he was somehow her son after all, but I don’t think she’s quite flaky enough to overlook an entire pregnancy.

Seon Woo (Jang Hee Jin) is every bit as awful as I thought she was. Good thing Seo Young was home after all, or she’d have been rummaging through their drawers.

And then, there’s more hilarious Kdrama hiding. Even funnier than Seo Young hiding behind a wrought iron fence is Sang Woo not being able to see her there. Obviously they are not as linked as Seo Young and dad (Chun Ho Jin), who can recognize his little girl on the phone by her breathing alone.

What could Seo Young’s reason be for surreptitious contraception? Guilt? Secret health problem? There was a bankbook in her locked case along with the birth control pills, right? Did she need to keep working to pay off Sang Woo’s tuition loans? Or to buy him and dad a house? I hope it’s something that’ll make Woo Jae see just how bad his personality really is!
