14. It’s a story about a 29-year-old woman named Kim Sam Soon. But I am thinking I should take the leap. Nor to meet you again. I hope you take this as a compliment: you recap like a girl....with lots of empathy and depth. Sam Soon is doing prep work at her pastry shop, and Yi Young is on the computer. I think the series did a great job of giving both a satisfying and open-ended ending, which is frankly hard to do. I smiled, laughed and cried every time I read your recaps and relived this drama's pain and uplifting hope once again… the best part is that I got to experience it with a man’s point of view. He asks Sam Soon what she wants to do, and Sam Soon has no answer really. You're a treasure! Sam Soon freaks out because her dad is just chilling watching television in another man’s house, and asks him what he’s doing here! 8. window.fbAsyncInit = function() { Sam Soon (crying): What if everything goes away? Today you got me with the Holy Shik! I would have never believed that I would enjoy a recapping of a drama I have watched countless times so much.

I understand the things that I have to do now:  do my best to make my cakes and do my best at love, just as if today is my last day, just as if I’ve never been hurt, and to love myself, Kim Sam Soon, more. I have watched My Name Is Kim Sam Soon and City Hall countless of times and my delight has not abated. I think it’s part of what she has to discover about life, and the conscious choice to love somebody and give him her all, not knowing the outcome. Sam Soon’s Dad: You dummy. Or, you might want to say that Sam Soon is your woman. 9. Thank you, Samsooki for one awesome ride thru "My Lovely Sam soon" World. // Load the SDK asynchronously Samsooki, your sense of humor is truly precious. but that's a story for another day. It wouldn’t have changed the ratings at all. light but not fluffy. None of the main characters are here, however. FB.init({ i have thought it was fighting & that may be i got it from some subbing. I think Sam Soon’s reason for changing her name, long after school kids had stopped teasing her, was because she felt like she couldn’t get married if she kept her odd-sounding name. She swears revenge, eventually teaming up with Woman B. Oh, and there's a nice guy (Nice Guy) who falls in love with Woman A, but Woman A can't hook up with Nice Guy until she destroys Dirtbag and Woman B. Oh, and the real insane daughter of the rich matriarch, she is also in love with Nice Guy. FB.init({ Everybody must live and keep on living, if not for others then for yourself.

But I think I will pass on Temptation of wife 120+ is more of a commitment than I can make to anything. And of course, Yi Young feels happy for Sam Soon too. This is for a very specific portion of k-drama watchers who like "mak-jangs" aka over-the-top soap opera-ish dramas.

I cried a lot reading your recaps. :) (I recapped this http://www.dramabeans.com/2009/07/city-hall-episode-1/). Appreciated & treasured (^-^). Watch List. All seems to be forgiven! But Woman B didn't live for years overseas with a bastard child and return to Korea to murder (accidently) Woman A and her unborn child, just so that a look-alike Woman A could steal her husband. First?! version : 'v2.2' // use version 2.2 From the bottom of my heart, thanks for resharing /making me relive Kim Sam Soon again through your thoughtful and great writing of this drama's recap. The male leads who partnered her, Hyun Bin and Cha Seun Won respectively, are without a rival in the masculine beauty and sex-appeal department (or in any other department for that matter). But there's not always a derivation (Chinese or otherwise). Her mom, who wondered whether Jin Heon got into an accident, and prayed at the temple daily until they learned that Jin Heon’s family got a postcard. Or you might want to say that Sam Soon is pretty. A frantic Jin Heon literally drags Sam Soon to his apartment for DEFCON 5 emergency unprotected sex, because Sam Soon has to get preggers like right now – their marriage might depend on it! Here are my new thoughts on MNIKSS. He didn’t come back! Digital Trends. So I thought perhaps, since I know that you have wonderful taste in Dramas, you could recommend a few for me to watch?

But I won’t be afraid of the future. But, you know what? Thank you Samsooki ! The middle/ending bit got a bit draggy and the last episode didn't really finish with a bang, as I would have liked.

Samsooki i hope you come back to recap another drama, i really enjoyed the walk down memory lane with this drama recap and most especially having you be the one doing it :).

Samsoon was my 4th drama, my first live watch, and the second one I finished (I skipped to the end of Stairway to Heaven and What Happening Bali but finished Damo). I think an example will make it clearer. Time sure does fly by.

The third place, he gets beaten to the snatch by another customer. Woman A then does her best to seduce Dirtbag so as to split up Dirtbag and Woman B. is the core belief of this drama. She wanted to be cool and special, and it wasn’t until Jin Heon showed up that she started to believe it. On behalf of the future dramabeaners wondering what to watch: Thank You! But still, Sam Soon is that 3rd daughter of something (I don't remember what), what Sam Soo Ni actually means and makes it better? At least Sam Soon is shocked.
