TV: [Spoilers!!!] Suspicious Housekeeper


Reader request.

-

Article: 'Suspicious Housekeeper', Choi Ji Woo turns 'cold' to the children after becoming their step mother

Source: Star News via Naver

1. [+1,006, -59] The viewer ratings seem to be way lower than I thought but it's a drama that makes you think a lot and touches your heart as well...

2. [+928, -24] I'm an avid fan of this drama but every time I see the step mother, I feel like she's the stereotypical step mother in children's stories... Either way, let's take it easy until the last episode.

3. [+747, -26] I had a bit of expectations about the ending but it seems the drama will be sticking to the same ending as the Japanese original ㅠㅠ

4. [+617, -40] Choi Ji Woo ages so beautifully

5. [+205, -6] I never saw the Japanese original. I thought it was too much of the kids to forget their own mother's birthday. It's not like she died a year or two ago, how could not one of them remember ㅡㅡ To all the people who view their mothers as cleaners or food makers, it doesn't take much to be filial... Just listen to their nagging. Never forget that your mother is a woman who lived a life just like yours, one filled with youth and a first love...

6. [+179, -16] Why did she even get married in the first place if she's going to try to not get them attached to her ㅡㅡ

7. [+135, -6] I have a feeling the script was written by someone who's never had kids. Being cold towards them will not make them go back to their real mother... how can they go back to a dead mother? She should embrace their wounds instead...

8. [+135, -8] The best award goes to Shim Yi Young today. First time in a drama I saw someone get slapped five times in a row.

  8. What a waste to have the original Japanese ending. It would have been nice to see her acting like a human being instead of a cyborg for a change.

    I was hoping they'd deviate from the Japanese plot too. I want LOVE! But I stopped watching because I couldn't take her complete willingness to help a child commit suicide, destroy the dad's career, etc. My ability to suspend disbelief wasn't strong enough.

    ReplyDelete
  10. i prefer the japanese version. just saying. the main character fit well

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think most people watch that drama for filler. Waiting for a great drama to show up you know.

    ReplyDelete
  12. No, you're not - the housekeeper is rude to the children to drive them away and they basically crash their aunt's wedding and convince her to look after them as a mother without actually being married to their dad.

    Has anyone watched Nanny McPhee? Isn't this sort of similar too?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Essentially. A mysterious Nanny shows up and stays only until she finds the family is independent of her. I don't expect Bok Nyeo to marry, but I'd like it if she at least tried to stay friends with the family.

    Agreed, she's starting to remind me of Cinderella's step mother.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I agree. There's something about Japanese dramas especially of this genre that captures this natural feeling. Personally I think a lot of Korean Dramas lack that natural element and come up short in many of their Japanese drama adaptations.

  24. Oh, come on, man! If you serve delicious foods on your restaurants, even if TVXQ will never reunite, you can still sells well. If not from tourists, you can gain loyal local costumers who can visit your restaurants every day of the year.
    Or maybe do more promotion. invite some famous KPop stars or celebrities to your restaurant and make them as regulars, then people will curious and try to eat there. But, of course if your food taste bad, they will never come back. So however you try to promote you will never sell well! >.>

  25. I feel you.. You're not alone. I'm here lying on my bed waiting for NB to post new article. Let's all go to Korea and go to auditions xD

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sure, because Yunho and Changmin's life was a bed of roses after JYJ DECIDED TO WALK OUT OF THE GROUP AND SPREAD LIES ABOUT THEM. They wanted that year of hiatus when they didn't know if they still had a career. They especially loved the fact that their 6.5 years of hard work was going to go down the drain with their beloved group becoming just a memory. They liked knowing their parents and sisters were getting bashed by stupid immature JYJ stans and the hate spewed out to them in public. Yep, total paradise. WTF

    ReplyDelete
  27. 1. [+125, -11] I don't want TVXQ getting back together because of external reasons like this. I want them to reunite only when every single member wants to and when the situation is fit. I don't think it's right that you ask the group to reunite for your own personal benefit. As a fan myself who wishes for their reunification, this protest does not sit well with me.

    THIS!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's why I can't watch mothers in kfamily drama. They get thrown around by too many damn people, even their own kids. I would never ever want to get married if that's the way people would treat me.
    I'm far from being an angel to my own mom, but the way these kids in these drama treat their mom is so cruel. How can you not remember your mom's birthday? how can you treat her like a maid? When I was watching in the beginning, I was so mad at how they were treating their birth mother that I was kind of turned off. And I felt the same way about the wife in Oo lala spouses too. Like, they give up their life for you and you can't even remember their birthday or to at least help.


    Lol, this has been in my head for a long time every time I see how mothers are portrayed in kdramas. I'm not assuming people treat their mothers like this in Korea and I know cultural difference play a part. I just feel, if anyone is going to throw my mom around like that, you best believe i'm going to make sure she lives a happy life and help her do things at home and most of all appreciate her!

    apparently tvxq will release a new album for their 10th anniversary... fans can see them promoting in Korea..

    So he also extended his Korean contract? I thought the last update was that Yunho would onlu be under contract for Japanese promotions/concerts.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Clearly it's symbolic. Please don't show off your ignorance

    ReplyDelete
  37. I agree with this. Now KPop artists can hold concerts in bigger venues in Japan and also more frequents. The Japanese don't have to come to Korea to attend the concerts and see the performances live.

    ReplyDelete
  38. One of the most weeaboo comments I've ever seen. Grats.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I haven't seen any concrete evidence of either (never will, I imagine) but Yunho fans have said he signed.

  40. why would they be bitter ? it's not as if yunho and changmin were the ones who asked them to leave

  41. I still love Park Si Yeon and I still believe she first took it for medical reasons then maybe it turned bad or something, but whatever, I love her as actress. She just had a baby and now she'll spend time in jail..... :/ Anyway hopefully she can recover and then be back for her family. Idk about tv because it might be difficult but I really hope she can act again someday.

  43. I wonder if Supernova is invited. They fail to become big in Korea, and went to the Japanese market a long time ago, and became a big hit. They have essentially integrated themselves in Japanese culture, I would think they would be one that would be invited.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I didn't necessarily like only him, I just liked how their stay in Japan influenced that era's look. With Yoochun's haircut, the outfits, and the dance which was more gyrating than lets say pop and lock etc.

    ReplyDelete
  45. lol are you purposely trying 'so hard' to start a fanwar? -because everything in your post can be debated-

    1. Who made that bed of thorns for Homin? It was not JYJ, JYJ had NO CONTROL over Homin or their decisions or the company that they are under. It was SME that decided to back bench them for those many years for NO REASON. Except, their super large ego where they were sure that JYJ would be forced into submission and back to the company.....which did not happen. It was SME's fault that Homin's life became more difficult. And SME's fault that JYJ left. Homin and JYJ are not children or teens that they would sacrifice their entire life for 'friends'. They have family to support, their own dreams, and more. As adults, EACH ONE OF DBSK5 were ONLY responsible for their own lives. There was no......"oh okay so you are going bankrupt tomorrow let me take out all my life savings to save your ass" they were responsible for financing themselves and their lives. So, they EACH made the best decision they thought where they would be able to support themselves better. End of story. They were BOTH not wrong for making the decisions they did.

    2. Lol the 'lies' must be 6.25 meeting again right? That story was bullshit and did not marr anyone's image. Heck, I think Yunho's father did MUCH more trying to ruin JYJ than JYJ or JYJ's parents did to Homin - with the book he wrote and all slandering JYJ in Japan and China. (That Homin fans have amnesia about and want to forget).
    Also, lol JYJ have NOT ONCE SAID anything against or bad about Homin even after they took the name. Whereas, during the lawsuit Homin signed a page that literally said 'JYJ sued because they are greedy morons' and when they came back on TV they said things like 'they are immature that why they sued, they sued because the fame got to their head, they are 'geese' that flew away and should never think of returning, they never once tried to call us after the lawsuit etc etc.'

    3. Shall we talk about stupid immature fans and bashing? You guys have so much fun repeating HISTORY (as in things that are done with) but LOL it is a JAPANESE YUNHO FAN who is currently translating CBM's tweets of slander against Junsu's father and mother, and who is blatantly threatening the members through twitter and stalking them. Also, it is a Homin Korean fan that was just sued by CJes currently for spreading lies about JYJ's family members and how they are sleeping with politicians, doing drugs, etc. which are lies.

    Please talk about what is currently happening not repeat thing that are in the past and long since forgotten about.

    -Also, lol I don't have time so i won't be replying to any comments you repost-

    You may think I am a hater (haha) but I actually like some Homin songs. Unfortunately I DON'T like Homn fans who always seem so butthurt and can't get over the past. Please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please GET OVER THE PAST AND BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU CURRENTLY HAVE!
    Both groups are doing well. Both groups are happy with the decision they made. Etc. etc.

    So just get over it okay?

  54. indeed! as much as i love them as five i want them to be truly happy and happiness does not come under pressure but from freedom to express or do the things that one loves.. JYJ feels they are on the right track n i feel the same too so I follow them but HoMin thinks otherwise and I respect their decision cuz everyone has diff perspective only if things didnt ended in bad blood..

    I heard rumours that idols themselves sleep with sasaengs. It was a supposed blog of a sasaeng on an ex-idol group member who the public perceived negatively (at the time, I think, because he's generally well-liked - aside from a couple of incidents). She basically said that barr two people, the group were scumbags who mistreated that member and I think she only mentioned one (but I can't be sure, I read it a long time ago) who took advantage of the sasaengs. (When I get my computer, I'll edit this comment with a link to the blog.)

    Honestly, there've been reports of sasaengs selling their body to get money for their sasaeng activities, so I wouldn't be the least surprised if there were a couple out there who took advantage of them.

  57. SA is on the opposite end of globe from Korea. It takes 17 hour of direct flight(none exists currently) to get there and back.


    Disposable income of SA nations is not really high enough.


    Due to corruption and violence, cost of doing business is actually rather high.

  58. best? BEST? please enlighten me the meaning. cuz though I follow JYJ I need to admit that they have yet to release a music that surpass many of the best DBS5K musics and same gos for TVXQ duo too i listened their songs and they were good but not the best.

  59. Better to be portrayed as suffering saints than as serial doormats, adulterers, or abusers as Korean fathers tend to be in dramas. I'd be super pissed if I were a male watching Korean dramas.

  60. 2. [+114, -10] What I find funny is that even after the lawsuit, TVXQ has still been gaining a lot of Japanese fans. Their fanclub members have increased by a lot. I don't think business is doing bad simply because they split up.



    This is one of the more sensible comments to me.

  63. You really have no sympathy for drug addicts? It's easy to look at someone addicted to drugs and say that they're dumb or whatever, but you don't know their life, what led them to this, and what keeps them coming back. I think addiction should be viewed more as a disease than a crime.

  67. That wouldn't be beneficial to either side to extend one contract without extending the other. Most likely he already renewed his Korean contract.

    French? Interesting. I'm learning Korean and drowning in vowels. I think Korean is easier to write, but I have a much easier time hearing/speaking Japanese. But compared to both Spanish is a cake walk (as a native English speaker)


    The issue with Spanish vs Korean is masculine/feminine words, plurals, pronouns and hard Rs. Other than that no problem. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  75. LOL Someone who wants people to get over things, you seem quite manic about the past and the present.


    Who do you think started this?!!

    "JYJ would be so bitter towards the other two members because of what they had to go through compared to Yunho and Changmin."


    The OP was the one that first blamed Yunho and Changmin for what JYJ went through when it was JYJ that made the decision to leave and it was JYJ that caused all the issues for Yunho and Changmin. If it was SM (as you think) why is Op trying to put the blame on Yunho and Changmin? If you don't want fanwar, shouldn't you be directing your essay to the OP?


    And can you please get your timeline straight. It was JYJ that held up their actions after their injunction grant. They did not do anything for a full 8 months after. That's why there was a year hiatus for Yunho and Changmin. JYJ said they were going to file a lawsuit but they never. SM finally had to April 2010 after JYJ debuted with Avex as a trio, which was a clear message that they did not care anything about TVXQ. That's when SM got the 2 ready as a duo, tried it out at SM town in August 2010, decided to go ahead and made the announcement Fall of 2010 for a Jan 2011 comeback. If JYJ filed their lawsuit in conjunction to their injunction request, things would have moved much faster and TVXQ would not have waited a year to make their comeback.


    LOL about that book again. Have you even seen the book? That book was not by Yunho's father. Get your facts straight. And the 6.25 mtg did happen and the purpose was to put the blame on Yunho and Changmin and the aftermath was a severe bashing for Yunho and Changmin. Everyone knows it! Stop trying to cover it up with lies about a book that no one associated with TVXQ wrote. You look desperate already!


    And if Yunho fans are making life miserable for JYJ and their family, welcome to TVXQ's world starting 2009-present. Should I deny it or not even acknowledge it since that's what you are trying to do about TVXQ's bashings?

    What a hypocrite!

  76. I know, I want one. its so classy.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I've read the transcript for the 6.25 meeting and I'd like to say although they didn't really "slander" anyone. It was wrong of them to talk about Yunho and Changmin and their views on the lawsuit without the two being their to defend themselves.

  81. Yes. This year the Award went to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Well the demographic for Kpop in those countries is not only considerably older (obviously there are a lot of young fans, but it's not as highlighted as it is in other countries), but it also reaches only those with, and not want to discriminate anyone, a different set of socio-economical standing. Or if not, certainly another field of education.


    Meaning most of these fans speak English. Most of the stuff where they can get information from is in English, which we already know that in a mostly geographical area consisting of "third world countries" "emerging powers", it does say where your economic standing and education stands. Not saying it's like these for every single Latinamerican fan, but it is the average.


    But yes, they already struggle with English. Certainly reading Spanish will be considerably easier, but not speaking it. Spanish has way more declensions and syntax constructs than English.

  86. 'Best' as in their best produced, consistent and cohesive work so far. It seems like Yunho and Changmin had always been held back by the other 3. Their synergy is amazing and it would suck to see them go back to the mostly mediocre old group.


    Even JYJ managed to put out some impressive work after their first half-assed attempts, In Heaven is also quite good, not to mention their solo work which is solid as well, especially Junsu's.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Yes, on theory there might be really no need or "no use". But need and want are not the same thing and Korean companies strive for Japan for a reason. A single successful promotion there gives more revenue than in other Asian countries put together. And it's way easier to tackle the market there than in the USA or say... China, which is still completely closed, where the kpop fandom is tiny at best, and where the people is more likely to support their own Chinese artists rather than foreigners (just like everyone other country would do and does tbh).

  92. Well tbh I did not go too into the 6.25 meeting. I glanced over it and thought there was nothing wrong. But, still it was said and is now in the past. For people to forgive Yoosu''s parents and JJ's sister do they have to ask for forgiveness today for something they may not even remember they have said?
    You are right that no one from both sides should have spoken about each other, with the others not present. But, this goes for now too. And JYJ are always blamed for that meeting when they were not even present, nor had they scripted their families talk. Their families said whatever they wanted to. So, in the end the hate for that one meeting is unjustified.

    ReplyDelete
  93. The funniest party of those rumors is of Jay getting bullied.
    I don't think Jay is the type of guy to get bullied.

  99. I know the reason, I'm just saying why there's no reason for them to appear in Korea. Japanese groups sell CD's in Korea, but they don't promote or make korean versions because it's not worth their time.

    Korean companies likewise don't put out a Vietnamese version of their releases even if they have fans/sell CD's there. They focus on the markets larger than Korea. Japanese/Chinese/English.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Being artists mean being free to express themselves. Whether through songs/ music or acting/dramas/movies (or any other media). No one should dictate how the artists should be (unless they are not really artists but just "singers" or "actors"/"actress" (or other acts) working in the pop-entertainment industry). If they feel more comfortable with the way they are now, then let them be. We can just only enjoy what they bring to us. If we like, then be a fan. If not, then leave them alone and get another artist to like.

    That restaurant owner is kind of pathetic. He should find any other ways to sell more but not with put the blame on the (whatever) situation he faces now. Why should he "asks" TVXQ (and JYJ) to reunite when he even is not their manager or people close to them? (even the managers or families should put the members' opinion first, because after all the artists themselves are the most relevant party). Same goes with the stubborn fans of old TVXQ. Dreaming of reunification is okay, but push the ideas to them are not.

  107. LOL, I have always found this funny! Youtubers (or is it the ifans?) need to learn to be less ignorant.
    don't they see the 동방신기 (a.k.a DBSK) in every TVXQ Korean video in SM channel, new or old? and the TVXQ did exist in the past in every goods SM produced internationally.
    or can't they just click their wiki page to learn that all these names are the same, just different pronunciations, and ALL of them are still used until today with the remaining members.
    just... the amount of ignorance here is so embarrassing :|

  114. For the OP's post............how I read it is that JYJ may feel bitter because Homin took the name TVXQ which the five worked to build with sweat blood and tears not just two. And also Homin has sung songs by the five over and over in various concerts. Also, as you may note, I as well as the others that replied to the OP's comment replied saying that they DON'T think JYJ is bitter. They have just 'moved on' and are happy with what they have right now (minus the blocking) (which is also not Homin's fault).

    JYJ was not the reason for Homin's haitus - SME was. That was the whole point of my rant. Homin fans ALWAYS are butthurt about that haitus blaming JYJ and everything when SME was the one who controls Homin and their career. Heck if SME wanted they could make them go on another haitus whenever they felt like it in order to expand the career of Exo is Japan and Korea. Are Homin fans going to blame JYJ then too?
    You are the one who has your info wrong. I don't know why I am debating old issues with you =___=
    JYJ filed a injunction against SME for termination of their contract. They never filed a lawsuit NOR intended to leave SME. They just wanted a more fair contract.
    SME then filed a lawsuit against them asking for monetary compensation due to damages because of Crebeau and the Beijing concert (where they forged JYJ's signatures on the agreement and submitted as proof in the media, and which JYJ did not attend). THEN, JYJ filed a lawsuit back and decided to leave SME.

    And yes I have connections to Japanese and Korean fans, I have seen the screencaps of disgusting things he (Yunho's father) accuses Jaejoong of doing to 'further his career'. I am actually surprised that Homin fans didn't translate that book since they are so happy finding even little things to bash JYJ about =___= (e.g. the 6.25 meeting and the haitus.........cause you guys literally have nothing else lol)

  116. In terms of CD sales, Yes. Japanese buy more CDs than the other Asians combined. (But most of the profits from CD sales go to Japanese distributors. So it's not THAT important) But looking at SM annual reports, no artists's (except for Boa, DBSK) revenues exceeded 50% meaning saying "a single successful promotion there gives more revenuethan in other Asian countries put together" is pretty far-fetched.

  121. Number of Japanese tourist dropped for number of reasons. At first, in 2012, it was just small number due to political tensions. Then in early this year, Abe deliberately lowered value of yen. This resulted in 30% drop at one time. Not only that Japanese tourist spent less money than before.

    And Myungdong is overrated, especially for guys who are not into shopping. Personally I wouldn't mind that place razed to the ground, and sky scraper built there.

  124. .................................................

    I read both the trans from JYJfiles and Homin fans gospel truetvxq and formed my own opinion on that meeting.

    What Homin fans find so offensive is that JYJ's family names Homin at all and said that all 5 wanted to back out together, but Homin ditched and they did not know why.


    If people found a reason to bash the other side only because of that LITTLE thing they said.......................it's kind of stupid really.
    You have to understand that the bashing was not because of that little statement...the ones who were going to bash would bash anyways irregardless of the 6.25 happening or not. You also have to understand that it was not Homin or their families that were hurt and bashed. All members and their families were bashed. Heck, my bias Jaejoong gets the brunt it on twitter from insane Yunaje fans and OT5 who #AKTF .



    DBSK posts are a prime example of this. Here, we have the trolls, the people who need an excuse to bash, the people who find a reason to bring up old issues over and over. LOL and here nothing bad is even said by either side. Heck their could be an article of one of the members or groups brushing their teeth in an MV and then there is bashing and fanwars galore.

  133. I agree that it was probably a factor, but people make it seem like it was the major reason when really it seems to be only a tiny spec of the whole problem JYJ had. Of course, all we can do is speculate because we were only really getting whatever info came through media and rumors. But I believe they would of taken whatever offer SM was giving them behind closed doors if it was mostly about money/greed.

  138. I suggest you read carefully before making a comment in that case since that's not what op said.


    I have no idea who Homin is but TVXQ can sing whatever TVXQ song they like since they are TVXQ! JYJ gave up all rights to anything TVXQ when they walked out of the group, sued to void their contracts as TVXQ and agreed they would not be interfering in the future. If they are so happy with themselves as JYJ, why do their fans care if TVXQ is singing TVXQ's songs? This is not even relevant to the topic of discussion?


    And I just wrote the whole timeline showing you exactly where the year is from. SM did not put Yunho and Changmin. They were all just waiting for JYJ to file their lawsuit which they said they were going to but never did. JYJ was responsible for the 8 months of lull in the lawsuit!


    >>They just wanted a more fair contract.
    SME then filed a lawsuit against them asking for monetary compensation due to damages because of Crebeau and the Beijing concert (where they forged JYJ's signatures on the agreement and submitted as proof in the media, and which JYJ did not attend). THEN, JYJ filed a lawsuit back and decided to leave SME.


    Good gravy! Stop! JYJ did not even respond to SM's request about TVXQ's activities. They were not interested in changing their contracts. Their injunction request was to void their contract, not to change it. And your comment is so funny since a JYJ stan a few days ago insisted that JYJ only wanted to leave SM,not negotiate at all. LOL You all sound so confused.

    Hon, I don't know what to tell you about the book. It's not Yunho's father that wrote it. I am 1000% sure. If you want to accuse Yunho's father of something that is not true, then by all means, go right ahead. It won't be the first time a JYJ stan bashed Yunho with lies.


    Honestly, you even admitted you know nothing about that meeting so seriously, you need to stop talking about it.

  140. [+125, -11] I don't want TVXQ getting back together because of external reasons like this. I want them to reunite only when every single member wants to and when the situation is fit. I don't think it's right that you ask the group to reunite for your own personal benefit. As a fan myself who wishes for their reunification, this protest does not sit well with me.

    And you just wrote


    "Well tbh I did not go too into the 6.25 meeting. I glanced over it and thought there was nothing wrong. "

All I'm watching now is Reply 1994 and I'm revisiting old dramas like She's Wow. I think JGS's drama got good reviews though (aside from the boasting Heirs fans), so maybe it'll be the good drama?

  155. The Japanese version of this is really good "FOR ITS GENRE", and its just 11episode. I watched it like i said, the genre is different so dont expect much from it however, indeed, its good. There's a reason why it broke tv ratings in Japan reaching 40%.
    I'm not watching the korean version, and i wont intent to - they have ruin so many remakes & this drama is fits better for a Japanese-style drama (you will know what i mean when you see it).
    As i keep updated with the events in this remake, my rant is, why keep this drama too emotional? Mita-san, the lead character in Japan, never married but why they change it and let her marry and become the stepmon in thus drama? Where's the other girl, the character played by Saki Aibu, she supposedly is the one to end up with the guy not the housekeeper. Lol, in the end they made this into another ordinary korean drama - they made it soo obvious. The ratings speak for who has the better version between the two and if u want to watch, wathch the original instead of this.

  178. Avex backed out due to C-Jes' CEO having rumored mafia relations. SM would not wield such power over Avex as Avex is ten-fold larger than it. Avex had initially dropped SM artistes to sign with JYJ; it was one of JYJ's demands. They went back to SM artistes after the rumor came out.


    Even though the lawsuit is over in Japan, there will be few entertainment agencies willing to sign with JYJ due to their perceived bad relations with Avex, which is a huge player in their industry, kinda similar with SM and JYJ. This is also why JYJ is not as successful as initially predicted, because they had planned to promote in Japan throughout their whole lawsuit in Korea.

  187. I think TVXQ are better off split up. The five didn't seem to fit together personality wise. For example, Jaejoong and Changmin are worlds apart. So are Yoochun and Changmin. The five fractured along the lines that were there already. JYJ don't ever want to get back with Homin and vice versa. Too much bad blood. JYJ doesn't want TVXQ signs at their concerts, which is understandable. Fans should stop putting pressure on the bands to get together again. Just choose a side and be happy with it.
