I think the buzz meter has turned between two competing makjang queens in K-drama land, Kim Sun Ok of Penthouse (seasons 1-3) has taken repeating killing and resurrecting main characters whereas Im Sung Han in Marriage Lyrics and Divorce Music now in season 2 is wowing viewers with not just quality but also innovative makjang. This past Sunday’s episode 12 was in its entirety of 70 minutes just two leads Park Joo Mi and Lee Tae Kon (the 40s aged couple) arguing and debating about his infidelity, with his trying to gaslight and excuse himself as merely being human, having emotions, making mistakes and her saying that he wants his cake and eat it too as a weak man requiring a woman to accept his flaws. He doesn’t want to divorce her for his one infidelity mistake and she wants to divorce because there is no trust anymore. She ends with the line that relationships between genders have to be clear, like is like and platonic is platonic, there is no grey area where a man can have a wife and a mistress. By cheating (one foot on a different boat) then the guy is just a piece of crap bastard. AMEN to that! That above is mere highlights but the entire episode is apparently just amazeballs in acting and dialogue.

  2. I’m watching a different show, I guess, because I thought the episode was boring and the acting was weak. The actress was okay but the actor is just not good. Dude is so monotone. The writing and acting was not nearly as good as the episode where the teenage daughter lit into her father in Season 1.

    • True, he’s not so good an actor. But the actor who plays the radio show’s engineer invented monotony. By gawd, he makes me yawn whenever he appears onscreen! So lifeless. Up till now, we still don’t know his purpose in the drama except maybe to end up with one of the wives (the writer) or mistresses (the translator).

    • Couldn’t be more agree. Hyanggi’s rage to his father was so far the best scene in this drama and the others are just meh.

  3. I had a ton to complain about this drama in the beginning and I still do BUT SHE IS A GENIUS!!! The full episode consisting of dialogue between two people reflecting on their marriage and what went wrong was AMAZING! I LOVED IT! it was so theraputic and satisfying to see the wife stand her ground a move on despite still loving him. That husband of hers did not deserve her at all. I still enjoyed watching him say all his patriarchal none sense because I am sure that’s how many men view cheating. Great acting from the actor and the actress!!!!
    The Making Queen is back!!!

  5. Above all the craziness of the drama, their dialogue makes a lot of sense.
    The more he speaks, the more she should divorce him. Good riddance!
    If I were her, I will have no patience to hear all his utter craps and just give him the silence treatment for all his care, words only going to waste for people like him.

  6. I was much more impressed by the writing and acting when the teen daughter lit into her father in Season 1. I thought this episode did a good job showing gaslighting but IMO the actor is not good. I’ve never been able to get past his monotone delivery.

  7. The first half an hour was great… the rest of the 40 mins the husband kept repeating himself. I was so bored that I gave up and fast forward to the last scene. Seems to me that the writer is trying to prolong the show to a 3rd season.

  8. Special two-hander episodes in dramas (or rather soap operas) are common in the UK, particularly in things like “Eastenders” and “Coronation Street” – act like mini plays. Over the years, there have been some amazing two-hander episode, genuine sad gut wrenching acting tour de force. In fact, “Eastenders” has had the only – so far – one hander where it was the character and a tape recorder talking about her and her dead husband.

    So its quite interesting to see the developments in makjang – bringing something a bit original to the usual escapades.

  9. Innovative and quality writing, my ass. Putting aside all the issues with this drama, that icky storyline with the creepy, pervy grandpa ghost ogling and groping young women at the poolside is just NOT it. And up till now, that ghost has still served no purpose in the story. I assume he’ll eventually possess a young hot stud to seduce his murderous widow for revenge. But WTF was Im Sung Han thinking?
