[HanCinema's Drama Review] "She Gets Married Thrice" Episode 27

2014/02/15 | 641 views | Permalink

And so the cycle begins anew. Yes, something happened this time. But Joon-goo, as usual chooses to just pretend like it never happened and who knows when we're finally going to hit the crisis point on his latest bad decision. Home life with Eun-soo is even more depressing than usual here- she doesn't know what's going to happen, but it's so clearly telegraphed that the relationship with Joon-goo isn't working out that a lack of a communication is the only thing keeping this marriage alive.

I have to admit I almost, almost, managed to feel sorry for Da-mi this time. It's kind of inescapable at this point that, in contrast to Eun-soo, she's willing to do anything, resort to any base level, to try and keep her relationship with Joon-goo going. Obviously this isn't making her happy. Even Da-mi's usual sociopathy can't just brush aside Joon-goo's obviously chilly attitude toward her. The fact that he's just as unwilling to sever as she, though, well, that's not something that can just be ignored.

Chae Rin's got problems too. She makes a trivial, totally reasonable request of her in-laws and is brutally shot down for no apparent reason other than general spite. It's been long established that Lady Choi does not want family members, but servants. And even servants aren't good enough a lot of the time. Maybe robots are what she's looking for? Regardless, it's a bad time all around for whoever happens to be nearby.

Now, something else worth considering about Eun-soo. She tries to pep talk Seul-gi on the perks of having a younger sibling, and Seul-gi is unimpressed. Considering the poor relationship she has with her stepmom, this isn't surprising. Seul-gi doesn't want new family members. That just makes life more unpleasant for her, having to share time between people she doesn't particularly care about.

It also begs the question of why Eun-soo's only interaction with her daughter is through reading these bedtime stories. As far as I can tell, Eun-soo doesn't actually do anything during the day. She literally lives in a home where servants are capable of managing all the daily chores. Increasingly this is just looking like a doll's house- hopefully Eun-soo is able to figure that out and take some steps to prevent it. The depressing undertones of "She Gets Married Thrice" are, as usual, the drama's greatest strength and weakness. It's compelling emotional stuff, but watching people slowly suffocate emotionally isn't exactly fun. At least Hyeon-soo's doing all right. Mostly.
