I'm just wonder who you guys think has the worst life story...


SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED FIRST 2 EPISODES


Yong / Geom - who saw his father's death with his own eyes, who has to live in poverty even though he was a Lord's son.

Shi Hoo / Ja Dol - who indirectly killed his father and someone else (!), he basically grew up with no family care (his rich family didn't treat him well and his real mother refuse to acknowledge him)

Bong Soon - who lost her WHOLE family when she was young.

Dani / Dan-ee - who is the real mom of Shi Hoo and the adopted mom of Yong. She didn't get the recognition she should get from Yong's father. She had to sleep with another man when she found out she had Shi Hoo.

Swe Dol / Soe Dol - who is the adopted dad of Shi Hoo and Yong. He's always the nice guy, sacrificing everything for his "sons." Who is in love and supposedly married to Dan-ee but never got the "recognition" he deserved as well.

I voted for Shi hoo...I meant think about it....
he was sent to a house that his mother forced him to go...getting insulted and believed that the love of his life is his sister...with an evil brother and mother to go with...and their house is full of corruption, too...
his mom doesn't talk to him...another person (which is Geom) took his mom's attention...and if you observed it...in cases when Dani has to choose which one to approach first, Geom or Shi hoo...she always goes to Geom..he wanted to become a noble like what his mom wants him to be and become somewhat cold-hearted at that...
he also indirectly sent his half-sister to death even his poster dad...he might even lead to Iljimae's death...
just the fact that I led my sister to death will drive me crazy...
and he doesn't know what to believe anymore...Dani just gives him lies after lies who he really is...he's really the one who doesn't know who he really is even after episode 18...

i voted for geom.
i mean, his dad was killed in front of his own eyes.
he had to run away from the guards and he had to survive on his own >__< to keep himself alive.
also, he had to THROW A ROCK at his mother to save his own life too.
And he saw his sister die in front of his eyes too. his life just flashed in front of his eyes >___< so sad...

i voted for ryung becase his father was victimized of being a tratior which he wasn't!!! but then his father was killed in front of Ryungs eyes, Ryung then had to be in runnig from his fathers killers also had to stone his mother and make pretened like it wasn't his mother!!!! Then he forgets his memory after 13 yrs or so !!! when he finds his sister she is put to death also in front of his eyes!!! Ryung has been seprated from his real mother for a very long time!!! so thats why i think RYUNG has asad life!!!

omg... iljimae has the WORST life EVER!!! the first 2 or 3 episodes people are constantly trying to kill him, and he can't even remember his past and when he does he can't tell anyone or else he'll be killed and the people who can help him remember everything get killed and then his sister dies right in front of him but he can't do anything or he'll be killed and he has to pretend to be a gangster and totally BLOW it with eun chae as ryoung so now he can only be with her as iljimae (which is not healthy). and then you've got the whole fact that he decided to NOT look for his mother who is living IN THE SAME CITY!! oh yeah... and he has a brother who is trying to kill him though both don't know they are related except the two people they have both called parents all their lives. omg... iljimae TOTALLY has it worse.

and then i'd have to say bong soon and shi hoo are tied for second.

1) Iljimae
2) omg his sister
3) Bong Soon
4) his half brother
5) the mom (she had to sleep with the evil man
just so she'd have an excuse to save her son)
6) iljimae's step dad becuz he helped framed
iljimae dad so now he has to do everything he
can to make it up to iljimae

hi. ok. before i type anything...i would like to warn you. this is a major spoiler. please do not read the follow post if you did not watch up to episode 18. thank you.
ah, furthermore, please do not flame. i realize that i may be oppose your ideas at some points. i do not wish to sound rude or offensive. if you do take this offensively, please calm down. that is not my intention. for those of you who do want to confront me about something that i have stated in my post, whether it be to contradict me or to concur with me, please send me a PM. but please do realize that i will only respond to mature messages, so if you would like to have a sophisticated conversation with me, i will be more than happy to do so. thank you.

ja dol's mother (da nee) didn't treat him as poorly as she treated yong. she treated yong much worse. why? because yong/geom is the son of her first "man" and another woman. she held a grudge against geom's real father, and that grudge was taken out on geom because he was able to live without worry, as a nobleman. ja dol, on the other hand, had to live with a poor family, even though he was the son of the same father. da nee pities ja dol and didn't like geom...but then she finally accept the fact that it wasn't geom's fault, but his fathers.

geom had a good childhood. he was wealthy...his father was a respectable man...and he was praised her his cleverness, wisdom, and his observational skills. when geom became yong, his life wasn't all too bad. sure, he was poor and his mother didn't really treat him well...but he accepted this and lived life to it's fullest. until his memory from before amnesia came back. =o that's when his real troubles started in my opinion. let's be honest. if his memory hadn't returned, he could've lived peacefully for all of eternity. of course, then the story wouldn't be amusing. xD and ta-da!! his memory came back, starting his life of hardships.

ja dol had to go through pain a lot earlier than yong, because he never had amnesia. ^^;; so his hardships started when yong's hardships were paused momentarily. =3 he suffered a lot too...but i still can't accept his reasoning, "fight to kill." i like bong soon's adopted father's motto much better "fight to protect." =)

Bong Soon, like Yong, lived an oblivious life too. she grew up with the man who helped kill her brother. =\ of course, she didn't know, so she lived pretty peacefully. she grew up well and her adopted father tried his best? haha. point is, she also carries a lot of pain because of the past that was recovered due to secrets. it was kinda like amnesia in a way.

Da nee, in my opinion, was both clever and stupid. she was clever because she slept with the fat, greedy dude so that she could use him as a scapegoat. but i think that she was also stupid because she lived her life after meeting her husband really poorly. she pretended to be cold and she acted malicious towards her family so that her husband could leave her and find a "better person" (in her opinion). that's a sweet though...but if she were nicer to him and the kids, she could be that "better person" jeez. stupid. real stupid.

iljimae's step dad isn't doing everything he can to "make it up to him because he helped to kill his real dad" -_- the step father is a genuinely nice man. he just had to do the job because he needed the money. speaking of which, he did get the "recognition" from his wife. =\ she's just really good at hiding it (read previous analysis). It really sucks that she had to sleep with another dude to make sure that she wouldn't trouble her master...but she chose that path. she was actually doing that because she had no idea that her master would get her kidnapped so that she would be free. go figure~ but it was actually a lucky thing that that happened because cha dol was able to live happily (even if it was for a few years...9-10?) before da nee had to use her plan.

i can't really chose one person...but if i had to chose one character out of these...i'd say da nee. why? because she had to act like a bitch. =\ that would hurt. to hurt your loved ones to make sure that they don't die? kinda like...spanking them so that they don't get arrested or be given a death sentence by the government. O.O ok....I'll stop now. lmao (no pun intended).

oh...and just to add in...does anyone else hate eun chae? sure, she does a lot to help the poor...but SHE'S SO ANNOYING! like...i wish she could just try to keep herself out of trouble. i don't like it how they pair her up with iljimae, just because she's pretty. it makes geom/yong/iljimae shallow. =_= i feel like I'm going to have a lot of contradiction on this comment...but w/e. =P

so yeah..no flaming...and please, let's keep it clean. =3
