[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Make a Woman Cry" Episode 10

2015/05/17 | 670 views | Permalink

The general ambiguity of Jin-hee's character is played up a lot here. As has been noted multiple times now, her request is a reasonable one. Deok-in and Kyeong-cheol don't have a marriage anymore, and both of them know it. The problem is that Jin-hee is a total jerk. Deok-in is totally correct when she points out that Jin-hee can't expect people to just give her whatever she wants because she apologizes. Deok-in is also correct in noting that Jin-hee's immaturity will almost certainly prove a major barrier in any kind of marriage, and that she's not properly anticipating how hard marriage will be.

Here's the problem. It's not really Deok-in's place to be making these kinds of decisions and she knows it. If Kyeong-cheol and Jin-hee want to make a mess of their lives, Deok-in shouldn't be trying to stop them. The fallout from all this is going to reverberate rather uncomfortably. The fact of the matter, though, is that this isn't Deok-in's family anymore however much they care about each other.

And as for Jin-woo...well, he doesn't have much plot to speak of. "Make a Woman Cry" practically make a joke of the fact that Jin-woo's son hasn't been causing much trouble lately. For the moment, Jin-woo has to make amends for being supportive to Deok-in when he actually has a mild personal stake in the situation. It's not a huge problem, but it's easy to see why Deok-in is upset. Every time she has a problem everything just seems to come crashing down.

Even so, it's easy to see why Deok-in comes around. Jin-woo has a very strong sense of personal honor- it's his main compelling personality trait. Whereas Deok-in's pushy behavior has a very bossy element, Jin-woo's desire to do right by people...well, it's like they discuss. These issues all derive from character backstory. And yet whatever the motivation, the door is never really closed.

Coupled with a relatively light focus on the rich family, these emotional developments make for a fairly decent episode. There's even nice comic relief early on, as the younger characters expose their subplot somewhat to the rich family. And of course, the rich family that finds an excuse to fight about everything finds pretty much nothing objectionable about a cheerful young man experimenting with new fashions. It's a simple enough joke, and yet it does add some badly needed levity to the proceedings.
