Seoyoung, My Daughter - Wikipedia
Lee Bo Young of 'My Daughter Seo Young' cried her eyes out after she ended as Mi Kyung figured out the relationship between Seo Young. Gah, this hurts because his and Mama Kang's relationship were the best of this drama. Thoughts on the madness that's My Daughter Seo-young? but yes, i' m quite surprised the sung-jae drama is ending this quickly. Drama: Seo-Young, My Daughter (English title); Revised romanization: Nae Ddal "Seo-Young, My Daughter" tells the story of a father who separates with his .. cz of my park hae jin oppa and ended by fallin' love with choi yoon young and her .. But then when Ho jung return to Korea it seems that the relationship has.
The entire early stretch of the show, which deals with how these two very different-yet-similar, obstinate people come to admit their mutual attraction, and embrace their feelings for each other, was easily the most cracky portion of the show for me.
Credit to the writers, I found all the back-and-forth between Woo Jae and Seo Young believable and well-reasoned; I could easily believe the decisions they each made, and the emotions driving those decisions.
Very nicely done indeed.
Flash Review: My Daughter Seo Young
The journeys of growth As with most family dramas, personal growth is a major theme in MDSY, with pretty much every major character experiencing a journey towards greater understanding and maturity. Fittingly, one of my favorite arcs of personal growth was that of Seo Young herself.
Perhaps the most moving growth arc of all, is the one charted by the relationship between Seo Young and her father. Credit to both actors and to writer-nim, for teasing out such a faceted 3-part journey with so much heart and sensitivity.
A lesser woman would have chaffed at how Sang Woo is a husband only out of duty, but Ho Jeong responds to Sang Woo with joy, and blossoms at every husbandly gesture that he makes. I found that sincerity and purity of heart thoroughly moving, and I loved her for being so loving.
The steps that Sang Woo takes towards falling in love with his wife, was truly one of the most satisfying things in this drama, for me. Sometimes things got excessively screamy or weepy. So much so that I actually winced at my screen a couple of times. I mean, going undercover as an orphan just because it makes you feel freer as a person is quite an entitled train of thought, if you think about it. Sun Woo Jang Hee Jin continuing to cling on to Woo Jae even after he got married was, in a word, creepy and obsessive.
Ok, make that two words. To be fair, pretty much all the characters experience some measure of redemption by the end of the show, so whatever annoyance I felt towards these characters or their arcs was greatly moderated by the time I reached the finale.
On the not-so-good side, I found some of the character arcs a little underwhelming. Like Sung Jae finding his professional calling as an artist manager, for instance. After all that angsting over wanting to be an actor, this felt somewhat anticlimactic to me. I loved their interactions in the early stretch of the show before Stuff happened, and their angst in the middle stretch, of being on opposite sides, was sad to watch.
On the upside, I appreciate that Show gave us a lot of happy all-around, with lots of feel-good stuff to leave us in a warm, post-finale haze. You made it so that I only expressed anger towards you since junior year of high school. Papa Lee just nods in acceptance and slowly makes his way toward the windows. If you look at it from a different perspective, Woo-jae-sshi is actually a jerk. But Woo-jae-sshi seems like a dummy.
There is nothing anyone could find fault with in you. Though I did not expect to be wealthy, I thought I would be able to feed, clothe, and educate my children comfortably. You two were so very smart.

Both you and Sang-woo. If I am to make an excuse, that was why I felt more desperate and rushed. I should have given up when I got scammed by Sung-tae. And then, more and more, I lost my senses. You should have told us these things earlier. I am sincerely sorry for making you guys live that beautiful youth in despair. I am sorry, too. It was not until you two were born that I understood how unfortunate my parents were.
Seo Yeong, My Daughter () - MyDramaList
Thank you for giving up your dreams for us, for giving birth to me. I have Sang-woo, who is always on my side; and I have a father I can return to. The relationship between in-laws is quite important in Korea, which stems from the cultural aspects of family and marriage.
Marriage is between two families — not just between the couple. Sang-woo is cleaning the house and getting ready for Papa Lee to come home.
While dusting the top of their dresser, he finds a box he has never seen before. Curious, he opens it up and finds a ratty pair of slippers sandals?
It takes him a moment to recall his conversation with Ho-jung on his birthday, when she gave him shoes as a gift and they talked about whether the saying about giving shoes as a gift was true. Not gift material by any long shot. Ho-jung is waiting outside, neck craned looking for Papa Lee. In the hospital, before the coma, Papa Lee had said he craved yeol-moo gook-soo [cold noodles in a radish-based soup], a signature dish of Mama Lee.
Ho-jung assures him the noodles are ready, and they walk inside together, arms linked together. Inside, they all sit down for some nice yeol-moo gook-soo, and Papa Lee looks up with surprise when he takes a bite.
Ho-jung for the win? Ho-jung explains that Seo-young came beforehand and made the noodles for Papa Lee — because she had never once made a meal for him. Seo-young and Woo-jae walk along the street, and Seo-young expresses surprise at what Papa Kang had discussed with her father.
'My Daughter Seo Young' Viewers Cry As Lee Bo Young And Park Hae Jin Reconcile After 3 Years
I married Lee Seo-young before, by pushing for the marriage using whatever means were at my disposal. It ended up being a disaster. You want me to have another marriage like that? Do you want to marry me?
The way the last sentence is phrased, it means that he will marry her as a favor of sorts — he will do it since she wants it so much.
Fill those three years of independence without regret. As they drive back home, Woo-jae asks what the silent Seo-young is thinking about. Seo-young buys the drinks and Woo-jae comes round, timing it perfectly. Once inside, she hands him a cup, but before he can drink it, he finds a ring rattling around the straw. Woo-jae just staaaares, letting the car veer off and sending the lovely drivers of Korea into road rage plus, and Seo-young yelps for him to pay attention.
He yanks the car back into his lane then pulls off to the side. Gotta be parked for this one, ya know. Are you going to do it for me or not?
He grabs her in a hug, giddy with happiness, and Seo-young hugs him back, smiling with just as much joy. Papa Lee rushes over to Mrs. She finds the trash by the door and grumbles that she told him to throw it away on his way out.
To her surprise, her precious slippers are peeking out of the trash bag, and she hastily pulls them out to return them to her box. When she pulls down her box from on top of the dresser, though, she finds a gorgeous pair of brand new heels inside, along with a card. Ho-jung excitedly tries on the heels, touched by the thoughtful gift.
She goes outside, dressed to the nines in an adorable outfit that matches her heels, to wait for Sang-woo. But guess who should be there, waiting for her, with a ginormous bouquet of flowers? If there is something you want to say, you should say them immediately instead of pushing it off.
Thank you for marrying me. Were you going to run away wearing the shoes I bought you? I said I love you. She has been selected to go to America for the fellowship program! She is obviously elated, and one of the guys asks if she asked Sang-woo to ask Kyung-ho for a recommendation letter.
Mi-kyung is surprised to hear that the hospital rumor mill claims Kyung-ho wrote her reference letter, and she finds him in the cafeteria to ask what went down. Jeffrey — to get rid of any doctor that was annoying him. Hahahaa just admit it. Kyung-ho tells Mi-kyung that she is indeed not his type, but she is Dr. His final words to her: Just get married already.
That evening, Mi-kyung presents the family with her plane ticket to America.
