It was a given from the start that Joo Hyuk (Ji Sung) was going to learn some valuable lessons here regarding his former marriage to Woo Jin ( Han Ji Min). As I watch those lessons unfold, I have to admit that I’m moved by his reactions to his part in failing Woo Jin so selfishly. I didn’t get the impression that, initially, it was intentional, but it became easier and easier for him to neglect his suffering wife as time went on. I have to say that although we see Woo Jin’s suffering, she’s not the type you really feel sorry for, but admire. Her problems with him, her Mom, her job, and raising two children virtually on her own, could’ve caused a full blown depression, but her anger showed how much fight she has in her. In choosing another life and wife without her, Joo Hyuk sees what an admirable person she really is, and what she became as a result being married to him.
IMHO, but not really because I’m a fool for love, he should leave her be, and let her be happy. Still, I understand that he gave her no choice in their previous combined destiny, so walking away isn’t that easy. Also, the destiny that he’s chosen with Hye Won goes to prove that he just AINT good husband material. His chosen wife is rich, self entitled, and kinda unlikable, but he’s still severely lacking even where she’s concerned. I can’t not feel sorry for him though….dunno why?
One thing’s for sure…..he’s suffering! But it’s causing others to suffer as well.
