Before leaving the mansion, Da Jung lined the kids up and told them all to protect their own rights and not have Yul order them around while she is not here. She tells them all not to do what their dad tells them in terms of studying and playing is more important. Yul asks what they want then? Man Se asks when Da Jung is coming home? Just one night away? Yul rereads the story to Man Se who gets even more irritated at his dad.
Prime minister is dating ep 11 recap
She gets In Ho to pipe up that there is no fight. Dad wants to go eat dinner and In Ho tries to explain that they just ate together. Da Jung goes along with it and takes dad to dinner. Yul hears from the kids what they want to eat for dinner and rejects all the choices. Hye Joo comes by after being called by the nanny. The kids watch in awe as she slices and dices. Hye Joo asks to sit there just for today since Da Jung is not around.
Na Ra says Da Jung allows them to eat it occasionally rather than never at all. Da Jung and In Ho go out to buy some food for her dad to eat. Da Jung goes to order and the lady wants to give them more since they are a newlywed couple. In Ho gets a call and rushes back to the hospital because his brother appears to be alert and trying to move.
In Ho looks distressed and Da Jung comforts him with a hand on the shoulder. After dinner, Hye Joo compliments Yul on the new hairstyle and asks why the sudden change. Yul thanks her for today and Hye Joo thinks his decision to send Da Jung to her dad is the right one. She offers to do more to help him around the house but Yul immediately turns her down. Why does he still treat her like an outsider? She asks how he sees her? Da Jung encourages him to be optimistic and his brother will get better soon.
In Ho knows he has to be strong for his hyung and for the things he still needs to do. Da Jung gets the feeling that whatever In Ho wants to do is not a good thing. Before he leaves, he tells Da Jung to just worry about her dad for now and let think too much about other things. She finds a folded frog inside the pages and thinks of Yul.
He finishes working and takes another sleeping pill. Yul and his team are out hiking and run into citizens who want to discuss their concerns with him. Dad is chewing out Da Jung for being here for a good half month and still not going back. Dad threatens to go talk with Yul personally. She walks by the TV and hears on the news that the Prime Minister is opposing the port construction project and might be going up against the powerful behind-the-scenes chaebol groups.
Da Jung gets back to the hospital room and finds it empty and her dad gone. Yul sits at his desk and looks at the hair clip he bought for Da Jung. Da Jung rushes home and asks if her dad came by. She reveals her dad disappeared and Yul orders the bodyguards to look around the mansion and call the cops. Da Jung is crying and worried about her dad being outside in this freezing weather.
Yul assures her that they will find her dad and she needs to not think the worst. Dad chooses not to answer it to keep Yul worried. Dad tries to go to the Blue House and instead ends up outside the legislative building trying to barge in to see his Kwon son-in-law. In Ho gets a call and goes there to retrieve him. In Ho brings Dad back to the mansion and Da Jung has been worried sick about him.

Dad immediately drags Yul aside to talk. Da Jung thanks In Ho for finding her dad before rushing off. She wonders to herself if Da Jung will return this way? Hye Joo then sees an online posting about her calling her a homewrecker. Joon Ki is less worried about the re-assessment as he is about figuring out the connection between In Ho and Kwon Yul. He needs to deal with In Ho cautiously since he recorded all their conversations. Hye Joo barges in and throws the print outs at Joon Ki demanding to know what is going on?
Yoon Hee is having drinks with her cronies and cheering on about how they used the internet to get back at Hye Joo. We see the three of them incognito at a PC bang posting anonymously. Yoon Hee then asks if they heard the rumors about Da Jung running away from home. Da Jung goes with it and assures her dad that she and Yul are fine. Dad then tells Yul to be more careful around the kids with their public kissing. He then tells them to go to sleep and Man Se runs in to say that he misses sleeping sleeping with Da Jung these past few days. Dad learns that the couple have been sleeping apart and gives them another talking to before watching them head into the bedroom together.
Afterwards Dad pats himself on the head for coming here. Yul and Da Jung awkwardly try to discuss what to do now. Yul apologizes for his miscalculation. He thought her dad would be happy spending more time with her but should have guessed it might worry him instead. Da Jung apologizes for coming back this way. He tells Da Jung to let her dad stay here and rest for now and the rest they can discuss at a later time. Da Jung candidly says she is happy to be back, happy to see him and the kids. This is what she wants to say to him. Joon Ki asks her sincerely not to do things like this in the future to keep embarrassing him.
Yoon Hee cries and apologizes but she just wanted to help him.
He has so much to worry him she needs to stop adding to it. Yul says this is not personal and has nothing to do with them. Before Joon Ki walks out, he gives In Ho a pointed look and tells Yul to look after his internal group first. Yul sits at his desk and thinks back to what Joon Ki told him. Da Jung sends him a text to come to the church with her and the kids. Da Jung sits in church with the kids and her dad and Na Ra lights up when she sees the cute piano playing oppa.
In Ho comes in lieu of Yul who sent him to take the family home from church. Na Ra is totally mooning over the cute piano oppa and almost burns herself on the candles. Na Ra catches his attention and claims she wants to learn music as well. Da Jung tells In Ho that after she takes her dad back to the hospital she plans to move out of the mansion but somewhere else.
I'll talk about dramas if I want to
Yul leaves work and we see a dastardly man watching him. Da Jung goes to talk with Yul and overhears him and Hye Joo discussing what to do with her. Yul has decided to keep her in the mansion. Hye Joo tells him to just make his marriage with Da Jung a reality. He sent her away the first time to protect her from Joon Ki. Hye Joo points out that there could be no other reason for how much he tries to protect her than Yul really loves Da Jung. Yul refuses to admit he likes her and only says she is in this situation because of him and he has a duty to protect her.
Da Jung walks away after hearing this. Yul states emphatically that he has no intention of making this marriage a reality……even if its true that he does love Da Jung. Da Jung stands in the courtyard and broods. Yul comes out to inform her that she should stay in the mansion from now on. She has her own reason for staying and that is enough reason for her to stay. Da Jung smiles and says this is enough. Dad apologizes for playing with the kids but Yul laughs it off since he played with his grandfather when he was a kid.
Yul wonders why Dad is going back to the hospital so soon and should stay a few more days. Dad is fine now that he knows his Da Jung is fine. Yul apologizes for not being able to take Dad back to the hospital but Dad knows how busy he is. Before Yul leaves, Dad grabs his hand and thanks him for being so good. Da Jung gets ready to take her dad back to the hospital and the kids come out to say goodbye.
Dad gives them all money and tells them to be well until he can visit again. The kids send him off and sigh with worry. Yul insists to continuing down the path. Da Jung goes to grab a glass of water when the glass drops and shatters. She sees on the news about protesters asking the PM to resign. Dad tells Da Jung to go find Yul and she hurries off. Yul is trying to leave work but the protesters are blocking the front.
The PM had no great goal at the beginning of the story. Let's assume PM wanted love but "didn't know it" and now voila he has it But the ripples don't lead to newer deeper conflict, they lead to stasis. Joon-ki doesn't hate him anymore or less because of this love. The PM is not the prime mover or the main protagonist and his love is not the main quest. The only quest the PM has had from the beginning is the environmental one The writers have given him this particular quest because they want the PM to DO something, rather than to be acted upon.
But the environmental thing is the only thing the PM is actively pursuing. We have here a very reluctant protagonist who is dragged kicking and screaming into a plot created by IN-Ho and the heroine who happens to be a true protagonist because she DOES make choices. But let's say that In-Ho is merely an obstacle and not a protagonist. Seriously, hasn't this new change affected his whole game-plan? Hasn't it affected the thrust of the story? So now what do we have? We have the PM's future affected by what is happening with a secondary character?
How then is the PM protagonist in charge of his own life? In any story, the protag makes choices then deals with the ramifications of each choice But the PM is pretty much acted upon. In writing, this is called a lazy, passive, or a false protagonist. He is a protagonist who is more acted upon than acting. He reacts more than he acts. In-Ho's story is a side story to the main story.
It will feed into questions about the OTP staying together, but that doesn't make it the main story. He isn't the center of the action. We aren't brought into the story through him--but through his dealings with Yul, and then Da Jeong. The goal of this story isn't this man getting revenge--the goal is if the couple in this contract marriage will wind up HEA. If you want a comparable character who is driving his own agenda in a story that feeds into the main story, then In-Ho is most like George Wickham in Pride and Prejudice. Yul and Dam Jeong are the protagonists of this story, because everything is working towards whether they will realize they are in love and plan to stay married.
Will he succeed in hurting Yul? Is it possible that the central relationship is the feature, but the story is thematically centered on 'moving forward' from things that have you stuck in a holding pattern? Personally - the emotional consequences of betrayal Relationally - the fact that he is still married. Professionally - Now the double jeopardy of being a politician who built his career on an image of righteousness; yet he deceived the public about his wife's death and then deceived them again by entering into a contract marriage.
Professionally - obligation to pay her fathers hospital bills Personally - needing to stay by her fathers side. Professional - Aiming your whole career to put yourself in place to undertake a mistaken quest for revenge Personal - Interfering one sided love. Personal - Interfering one sided love Professional - Ambition that can only be fulfilled by working through the right man. Personally - Past indiscretions that resulted in a loveless arranged marriage Using her father to secure her relationship.
And maybe - Thinking her dad is an elite businessman, and not knowing he's actually a mobster. Public dissatisfaction with corruption and cronyism Need for ethical politicians. In this way of looking at it, the OTP relationship would be central, and the other elements present barriers to that relationship working out.
The story needs to get them all 'unstuck' for the OTP to connect. Does this make sense? Kang In Ho was supposed to have evil intentions of revenge simply because he only knew one side of the story the one told to him by his older brother , and even then what he actually knows is possibly just the tip of the iceberg.
And clearly in recent episodes, Kang In Ho was just that - conflicted. There are more than enough character beats for Kang In Ho to suggest that. Way too much overplotting, and the typical k-drama habit of not going deeper into the conflict they already have!! As of now end of this episode , I don't think the ex-wife being alive would change In-Ho's revenge. Whether the wife is alive or dead it doesn't change the fact that his hyung is in a coma, a coma that he believes was caused by the Prime Minister.
Her being alive does raise questions but until he gets the full story his evidence will still point to the Prime Minister being the guilty party. And I'm pretty sure her being alive will rise even more questions, not make it the easy way out. Especially if the Prime Minister knew he was alive. Even if this was planned from the beginning, I'm still ticked off!
I know these stories aren't meant to be about organic storytelling I have never once considered the PM or the heroine as protags in this drama. In some strange way, In Ho is the prime mover and shaker. His actions, choices, decisions set the plot in action. And while I understand that seeing dead wife will have him questioning his vendetta, reappearance of dead wife is a bit of a cheat to keep the love-birds safe from In-Ho's vengeance.
That's like suddenly putting up an escape route on a plot highway. Yes, yes, I know Was his anger misplaced, yadda yadda? Why not have Prime Minister be at fault? I still don't think PM was driving the car but that's a plot twist I could've dealt with. Why not have In Ho go through with his vengeance or not? Why add all this So annoyed right now. I always thought Na Young was the protagonist of this story, but you know, we all see things differently.
I don't think her reappearance will "keep the love-birds safe from In-Ho's vengeance". I see like this, yes she is alive but wouldn't it still cause pain to In-Ho if he finds out let say So his hyung has been in a coma for years and the Prime Minister never bothered to inform anyone that a key witness to what happen is alive and well? Wouldn't In-Ho still feel cheated by not only the Prime Minister but his ex-wife as well.
For all he knows they could have planned the accident together to give her a chance to have a new life. Or what if she lies and says that the Prime Minister did all this and has had her in hiding. We don't know her character, all we know of her is mostly through the Prime Ministers eyes so she could very well lie to save herself and keep the revenge plot going. I still feel that this new plot twist opens a whole cans of possibilities for what happened.
I think today's episode will serve to give us a better idea of where this is going instead of making all this speculations. Just give it a chance, maybe it wont be how you wanted the story to go but it might still be worth watching. He's not only one of the biggest reasons the OTP is together, but also a huge reason for their staying together--and then he's the one who basically introduces us to the woman who's been seeing the big brother. Furthermore, InHo is not and has not been the the person that has been driving any of the numerous domestic scenes which are having such a profound effect on the contract marriage.
He can't be part of that. If he were a huge part of the story, as you seem to think, then he would be part of all of that, too. He's not the main factor leading up to the main goal of the story, the HEA. Honestly I don't think they do it for the sake of rating. I mean, even since the first episode it was subtly hinted that Na Young was "disappeared" and not dead. Now that it might be happening for real I'm just wondering how the show will handle her return.
Well, at least it seemed that the writers have planned her being not-so-dead since the get go so I hope they handle it well and making this show even better, hopefully.
Prime Minister & I
It was written into the story from episode 1 and the car crash scenes showed her body missing when it hit the water. So as disappointed as you are, it's not a sudden rating-boosting decision. It's kdrama and some makjang is a given. At least the writers here gave us everything in episode one from her dad's illness to the accident and have given hints. Most dramas throw things in our face that both don't make sense and had not been somehow hinted earlier. And they blackmail people with cliffhangers too, something which this series is countering with its previews.
But this is about personal taste after all. It's just a shame to give up such a nice work, but your call. Prime Minister and I may have typical makjang elements But honestly, it does not really feel like makjang. The execution is really different. This drama feels more like a jdrama with the way the makjang elements are executed. Heirs is makjang, where things are happening suddenly and stuff.
But Prime Minister and I is more of a gradual process of things as well as character moments and growth that feels organic. I agree that PM does not feel like makjang. I think, it handles the balance between this and rom-com perfectly till now, at least. There were many situations that would typically arouse tons of tears, screaming and self-loathing such as the misunderstanding of misconduct initiated by the reporter or the scene in the hotel ; yet, it never evolved into anything like that even the situation of heroine's father, though really sad. Every makjang was handled well, and these details were never pushed in the first place, as the main point.
Thus, I really believe and hope , that if rating won't affect the writing, the accident of wife will be handled just as well. It's a nice work but I still feel it's a failure of moral courage. When the writer decided this would be a happy light rom-com, the die was cast. The writer has effectively given an "out" to her avenger, thus she effectively gouges her plot with this twist.
The vengeance is derailed. In-Ho will see his error. Presumed Dead Wife and hubby will divorce and PM and heroine will marry. All will be well. It really is one of my pet peeves. We have to remember the medium though. I think we only have ourselves to blame if we're disappointed after raising our expectations so naively and to unreasonable standards.
Kdrama is kdrama and I think it's unfair to not praise this for the things it does well, but hold it responsible for our own wishes about what the medium could be. We get shallow crap dramas, then we wish we get something less cliched, better characterization etc. Then when we do get that, we complain about it not being perfect and for its nature being compatible with its medium.
I find that unfair and I'll have to say I completely disagree with your judgement and find it unfair. But that's because our viewpoint and expectations are entirely different. I personally can't handle the heavier ones. I say we wait to see how they handle it before we declare them guilty of series murder.
They've handled all the other makjang scenes beautifully, to this point, so there's hope that they can surprise us, even with this plot twist. The Prime Minister's second marriage is entirely legal and there will be no need for a divorce from his first wife. He's not a bigamist.
While it's pretty clearly set up right at the beginning, with the whole missing not dead body thing, that sooner or later 1st Mrs Prime Minister was going to make her re-appearance, in the eyes of the law she is deceased. She's presumed to be dead because of the nature of the accident. Just because her body is never found doesn't really matter except in k-drama of course where it is a surefire guarantee that she is alive.
A massive search having first been done, it would have been presumed that her body washed down the river and out to sea or was stuck in a place where it can't resurface, and a death certificate would have been issued fairly quickly after the fact. This is standard practice worldwide. It's not the same as a person who, in the classic example, walks out the door to buy a pack of cigarettes and is never seen again. The standard wait to have a death certificate issued in cases like this is 7 years but this is often shortened for various reasons. There is the legal issue - the first wife is legally dead and to become undead will require some form of lawyering.
There is a case right now in Canada where the tax department has declared people who are very much alive to be dead. They seem to be having some difficulties getting this reversed which is weird because they are obviously alive. Then there are the personal issues and, face it, that is going to be a big mess for everyone concerned.
Why did she do this? Her husband is one thing but to abandon her children is hard to fathom. Postpartum depression is a reasonable assumption. There have also been cases exactly like this. A recent case is of a woman who disappeared leaving her husband and kids behind. The husband was under suspicion for years for her so-called murder. There were issues like abuse going on but her children grew up thinking she was dead.
I agree with you that this episode introduced a tone that felt disconnected. No only does the wife being alive cast a huge question mark on Yul's character.
It also presents her in a very dark way. What kind of mother would abandon her two young children and newborn infant for the sake of a semi-comatose lover? Man-se is 7 and the accident happened 7 years ago. Maybe she was suffering from post-partum depression; but to traumatize her babies by letting them think their mom died?
For me that tonally jumps the shark. Awww Nara and Woori definitely has accepted Dajung now. Da Jung and Hye Joo continue to be awesome. I hope they can be best friend later on, them holding hands and awkwardly breaking it was cute! She was so brave! Still, my favourite moment today was HyeYoo's confession almost cried here , because finally I felt I was able to understand her.
So, somehow, Yul protected her when she was suffering and no one was taking care of her. As she tries to be strong on the outside, probably it was not easy for others including JoonKi to get closer, so no one could impress her as Yul did and she ended up alone And all that not-dead-wife suspicions. Looks like the perfect obstacle that is still waiting for our couple to find their happy ending. Ahhhh, I need next episode now!! I am so glad that Kwon Yul actually stopped yelling at Da Jung and talked peacefully with her. Look what happens when you do that: Da Jung can actually communicate with him and told him that she loves him.
Whereas previously she didn't have the "courage to confess. But for some reason, I am most grateful for the scene of Da Jung thanking In Ho for finding her wayward father. She stepping forward and said, "komowo thank you. Each time, it melted me.
Prime minister is dating ep 11 recap - The Three o five
I was told that USA films lack expressive screen shots like those whereas Italian films had more setups with beautiful sets and painting in the background. The American films are all into action and that is reason I stopped watching them. Personally I'd be way more upset at my son for singing at any religious institution, rather than a band. Surely Yul's first wife is not going to come back into his life and want him back after abandoning him and their children all those years ago is she, cause that's just wrong and frustrating, even if the cause is amnesia. I don't think dead wife is coming back to be with the PM again.
I doubt she had an amnesia, 'cause it seems like she's been visiting her lover, In-ho's bro. It's been 7 years, and if she wanted to come to him, she could've done it earlier. I believe the purpose of her return would just to bring closure to everyone, In-ho, Joon-ki and the PM. However, the show has a lot of explaining to do about why she abandoned her family--husband, children, brother, nephew, and so on. The missing wife is the one behind the stabbing.
She's actually a deranged serial killer. Seriously, I think the wife would have still been in jail. The eyes are wrong, anyway. That's the one thing about a surgical mask: It forces you to focus on the eyes of the person wearing it. I find the dead wife not being really dead a frustrating idea and the timing is so typical. Right when the kids and husband are opening their hearts BAM here's the first wife to mess everything up. If his sister is only presumed dead that does alter my perception of some of his interactions with Yul.
He's still a crappy husband though. Thanks for the recaps loved this EP!!! I can't wait I'm so excited. I want to see how the PM's first wife story unfolds and please please no amnesia. I'm puzzeled with Joon Ki's zero reaction on the fact that his sister was romantically involved with Suho Da Jung's reaction at the end, on the other hand, was fantastic. Loved her confession So Much. One of the reasons he may be so angry with Yul is that he knew his sister was unhappy before she disappeared, enough to be seeing a psychiatrist, ta best, or another man, at worst.
I have no issue with Na Young being alive because it's not shocking. We were given clues from the episode 1 that she may show up sooner or later. She's actually essential to the story and the character developments. Soo Ho can't do anything, so Na Young is needed. Whatever anyone may think, the writers planned this all from the beginning. I still think this is a very well written drama. I guess that Na Young's disappearance instead of death would give reason for Hye Joo not to confess her feelings earlier, maybe either she knows she is still alive or she knows that until her body is found Yul will still have some doubt in his mind to a new relationship.
But sometimes people like me think too much, and then there are others like Da Jung who just go for it and put it all out there on the table. So the ex-wife was seeing a psychiatrist.. Was the ex-wife unstable when she was driving the car and Yul was there to try and stop her? But then what was In Ho's bro doing? Oh right, about the blessing part - I totally misheard that wrong. Actually, Yul wanted to meet with Su-ho In-ho's brother and that made Su-ho even more scared.
Moving away from the discussion of the firts wife's reappearance. I'm just glad that Da jung confessed her feelings to Kwon Yul because if we wait for Yul to admit to his feelings to Da Jung, it might take us a while. It might happen on the 11th hour of this drama and we wouldn't want that would we? Yul just got schooled in the art of being open and honest with your feelings. I love that we have non-wishy washy people in this show. I'm not sure if this is growing on me, but the episodes are getting a bit more boring than usual.
I feel like In Ho has more character development and depth than Kwon Yul even though he has an odd past with his 'dead' wife. So his wife was actually alive all these years? Who would pretend to be dead and leave their entire family? I hope things will be explained soon. Even if it's getting a bit boring, things are developping and the sudden resignation of Park Joon-ki and Secretary Seo was unexpected. I'm glad Da Jung confessed to the PM without hesitation, it's hard to find female protagonists who are willing to confess first without being confused over random emotions.
So hopefully in the end In Ho doesn't die, but I really think Yoon Shiyoon is doing a fantastic job portraying and bringing this character to life! From trying more diverse roles, it has this amazing effect! In the past he always had sort of mischevious, happy-go-lucky, sort-of-deep male characters and it got a bit repetitive. The fact that the view is not sure if he's a good guy or a bad guy adds suspense to the series and makes us want to watch until the end. What a good distribution of characters! One of the biggest sins that a doctor can commit is to have a romantic relationship with their active patient.
This is particularly true for psychiatrists, as their patients are always more psychologically vulnerable. Because of this, I find it difficult to empathise with In Ho's position, as in my mind, Su Ho has only himself to blame. I find it interesting that doctor-patient romantic relationships seem to be acceptable in the dramaverse Big comes to mind.
There may be some occasions where it could be acceptable ie if the doctor is no longer treating the patient, or in situations where there are no alternatives, such as in small isolated communities ; but in general, it really shouldn't be permissable. I wanted to smack Yul for saying a woman who confesses first is too easy. Care to drag your head out of the Victorian Era? Give me a break! Good on Da Jung for ignoring that and taking the initiative.
Can anyone tell me what's the name of the song playing while Yul and Hye-joo are walking and talking about college days? They used this song some on the previos episodes too. I found it awfully familiar, I think I have heard it from other drama before. I thought it sounded like a song in A gentleman's Dignity, without the vocal.
