It was the calm before the storm last night in KBS drama “My Golden Life” Episode 36. Calm all round for almost everyone before the big storm hit with the confrontation between Seo Jian and Choi Dokyung’s mother.
We saw Park Sihoo-ssi’s Choi Dokyung and Seo Jian’s relationship more cordial after their “heart-to-heart” when she told him she likes him but that she was not prepared to move the relationship forward. He accepted this with calm for now as he has to focus to find his own grounding to establish his business and earn a living. No easy task as he would not leverage on his Haesung legacy which left a lot of loopholes in his career background that he could not explain. He also had to grapple to learn new things that he did not have to do in the past when he had staff to do everything for him.
Despite his fully loaded days, he managed to become “part time” worker to accompany Seo Jian to the flower market to buy flowers for the wedding floral arrangements for the “coffee couple”. It was so sweet to see them together enjoying a day out and even part taking a meal of street food!
This was the calm. The storm was brewing in the meantime as Grandfather Roh was on the warpath with his grandson Choi Dokyung and putting pressure on Mother Choi to find the woman who lured him away from the right path.
Mother Choi’s deduction was spot on and finally, the storm broke when she confronted Seo Jian! Pushed came to shove, Seo Jian stood up for herself and told Mother Choi, whom she had always been afraid of in the past that she hated the association with Haesung and had no intention ever to return. Mother Choi also should resolve her issue with her son directly and not with her!
Well done, Seo Jian! Make your stand and don’t let yourself be bullied ever again!
Calm, yes, last night. But the coming week, we should see a huge heavy storm hit the roofs of the Chois and the Seos! My, oh, my! Better brace yourselves and find shelter!
