:lol thanks...
:-(
i'm disappointed because in Episode 29 and 30 there were no Dong-chul and Hye-rin moments like in Episode 28...well they went to Rebeca's party but it seems that they haven't seen and shared some thoughts before....they just nodded to each other.. :O :O :O
and Hye-rin went to Dong-chul...but dong-chul is kinda annoyed when he saw Hye-rin........(maybe because he thinks Hye-rin is like a stalker :lol :lol :lol )
and darn it Young-ran is back......oh come on please stop it..!!!!...please there are many interesting plots in the story .....please don't be focus in young-ran and Dong-chul again.they had enough episodes....enough for them...


and Mike is in serious trouble...because of his Business(?)...and darn i have to admit this...after i've seen Episode 30....there must be another chance for Dong-chul and Young-ran.?...(oh i want to cry).....what do you think about that?

Hey Kim,

Me too! I'm also disappointed. Young ran (Grace?) just married to Mike, right? I don't think & I totally disgree if they(Yong ran & Dong chul again?) involve each other.
What a worse & waste Hm? One is married woman & don't want to be sacrificed DC's life again.
The best way is to become close DC & Hye rin together in soonest possible(ha ha, Am I too bias & personalized?)

Oh, kim ,the only way we can do now is to pray for DC & HR as there is left another 20eps, right?

Warm Rgds,
Nyarnyar
p.s .Anyway, I'm so pleased & happy during these days as I receive your reply & post in almost everday. Bye..

Hey Nyar Nyar & Kim!

Thanks for the welcome! Yeah, I'm like you guys, I want DC to end up with HR...but will it happen, we don't know... :unsure:

I agree, if they focus on DC & YR again...it'll be a waste, and they've already had a lot of screen time together. I feel she's too immature for him and they don't really match, but maybe I'm in the minority.

Hi Lavender,

As I said to Kim, we have to wait & see next more 20eps; what will happen.
I think this one is a little bit twist btwn the charactors, (I mean not much as simple as other K-dramas).

Hey Kim,

Do keep in touch if there is any good romance pop ups btwn DC & HY. Okey?

Warm Rgds,

General EofE speculation to follow . . .
I think LDC/MHR was getting delayed because EofE had been setting up separate mini-storylines for LDC and LDW. The task of defeating Shin Tae Hwan had been given to LDW, which in turn will lead to him learning of his true identity. Notice how that storyline has brought in Shin Tae Hwan's wife, who will soon (heh, that may be another 15 episodes) learn what Rebecca did to her personally between her false and true sons. East of Eden has refocused between Lee Dong Wook, Shin Myung Huk, Shin Tae Hwan, and Rebecca. It's likely that this storyline will dominate East of Eden for the next 5-10 episodes, finally ending with the fall of Shin Tae Hwan.

My hunch is that LDC/MHR is being set up for when after Shin Tae Hwan is finally sent to prison. At that point, Lee Dong Wook will finally learn of his lineage and may vy to become the true heir of Tae Sung.

Triangle between Grace and MHR probably won't be strong. And in fact, this may set up a rivalry between Dong Chul and Grace. First, it's appearing that President Guk is for all intents and purposes grooming LDC (and not his daughter) to become the heir of his empire. Giving LDC the combination marked a fundamental change in the relationship between Dong Chul and President Guk, and it's a genuine threat to Grace who had been reared to succeed her father. Second, if Dong Chul and Hye Rin become romantic, President Guk can give Dong Chul the social status that Dong Wook didn't have (and it's likely Dong Wook will resent his brother for this.) In addition, President Guk would see this as an auspicious opportunity, since Min Hye Rin is the future heiress to a newspaper, and of course President Min and Guk are old friends. Grace literally has EVERYBODY against her, and in a way she'll become more and more marginal while Mike remains incognito.
Honestly, the show will need more than 20 episodes to properly finish off this story. Hopefully we'll hear news of series extension soon.

Thanks for the speculation report! I'm so impatient when it comes to dramas...

I do have a question though...so do Korean dramas that are currently airing add more eps if it's doing pretty well? I've kinda thought that they did, but it seems weird to start airing dramas when they haven't completely finished the post-production process. I definitely know Japanese dramas don't do that...and I don't think HK, Chinese, & Taiwanese dramas do either.

Ahhh, well most Korean (actually, nist Taiwan, Korean and Japanese trendy) dramas go by live shoot. That is, they're shooting as they're airing. If there's location work, as there was with East of Eden, often the footage will be used in later shows. If the shows have really strong ratings, you'll see a series extension. This is especially true if it's a sageuk.

MBC has done this for various shows the past year and half. Coffee Prince, Yi San, New Heart, Beethoven Virus. I don't think there's been a formal announcement for East of Eden, but it's very, very likely they'll extend this run. When the show started hitting mid-20 scores, the lead actors restructured their contracts to lower the asking rate per episode. That's the first sign that they intend to extend the show. But, usually, you can pick up that an extension is coming when the story seems to go in different directions.
For example, the Lee Dong Chul and Min Hye Rin was a major promotional item in the story. However, as you can see, they've delayed and delayed this storyline, minimalizing their interaction to but a few scenes until Episode 28. In turn, they've greatly extended both the Lee Dong Chul/Yoo Ran and Lee Dong Wook/Min Hye Rin romances, giving both quite a few "false endings." Also, they threw in a weird time jump to avoid having to do the hard work of connecting filler plot. Dong Chul's enemies instantly become friends. LDC/YR ends but we don't really know how, and we're not 100% sure if it's "really over."

My hunch is that Dong Chul and Dong Wook are now in completely different storyline simply because the writers HAD to commit to developing the romance between Dong Chul and Hye Rin. It seems already implausible that Min Hye Rin has absolutely no clue that Dong Chul and Dong Wook are brothers, given that she was so close to LDW for well over a decade. Are we to believe that, given the many times she's visited his house and how he adores his brother that he never, ever mentioned his bro's name?

There's been rumors about internal tension among the writing staff and actors (i.e. they've altered the original story a lot.) The principal writer (due to health as well as stress from the show) was replaced after Episode 35. The East of Eden style may radically change somewhere in the middle of the show. I'm not saying this show is a mess or a train wreck . . . but you can kinda tell that MBC wants to badly, badly keep this show going. It's kinda disappointing because the lapses in the writing hurt its ratings and prevented it thus far from passing the National Ratings demarcation line (i.e. a 30 rating)

So far, it's just unrealistic to properly finish this story in 20 episodes.

1) The original brother needs to find out the truth, and hide it. That's at least 5-7 episode right there.

2) The 2nd brother has to find out and deal with the emotional fallout. That's at least 3-5 episodes.

3) LDC and MHR have to fall in love. That's going to be 3-5 episodes.

4) Shin Tae Hwan has to be finished off. God knows what it'll take to do that storyline.

5) What about the two mothers?
There's been a lot of active debate all over the Net about which couple will prevail. The flaw with any argument is that East of Eden hasn't really been all that romantic. The core relationship is of that between the brothers, and how their love pushes them forward and will get tested once the truth is revealed. Everything else has been an accessory to the up-and-down quest of the Lee brothers.

Hi Belleza,

Thanks for your well speculation & points 1~5 which/how this series needs to extend.
I totally agree with you.

Belleza, do you mean (most of the series go on live like "On Air", someitmes the show/plot will change depends on the script writer(or) actors?

Wow, that's v- exciting for the ones like us who wants to know the ending v-truly.(Just kidding)

Anyway, my good friend,Kim will be busy during these days, could you pls. kindly update me on the plot, pls.Okey?

YR: Uncle,are you done with Han-Sung side?(Hye-rin broke up to Baek)
How long do we have to be a personal bank for you?
Mr g**k: Grace!!!(i was like "you should slap her for being impolite" :-) :-) :-) )
YR: Apa, you look like a silly match maker
(Young-ran is really mean,how could she say that in front of the elders,,,back then,she was really sweet to Hye-rin...i dunno what episode is that....,,,,they are like sisters...and knowing that her family is one of the closest friend of Hye-rin's family ...oh what a girl..)

:-) :-) :-)

* ㅋㅋ if i am Mr. g**k(match maker),i will call all the Japanese and

My dear Kim,

A very happy Good morning to me as I see your post upon opening my mail box.

I think(may be misunderstood) you will be v busy in coming days & will not post quite in a few weeks(That's why I'm sad).

But now it refreshs me(hee hee,expecially it amuse me when DC & HY check in the JPN Hotel). Oh, I cannot even make a laugh out. Ha ha ha....It is a very sweet moment(If I'm HY, I will be a little bit shy & pleased to hear what that Rep; said).

Don't worry about YR, cause you know in every K-drama, there's a villain who wants to separate lovers(here DC & HY). But the more they push them(DC & HY) away, anyhow
they(DC &HY) will become so close together & fall for each other(I do hope they will, hee hee).

Like Belleza said, it needs 3~ 4 ep; of DC & HY will become lover & their sweet scenes.
If I'm the director, I will take them to the Ice land(I love to play with the ice) like in Winter sonata & create sweet moments. Do you agree with me?

Anyway, thanks a lot for your lovely pix; of DC & HY. Wow, they looks good together(even my mon(she's not interested in movies,series) said they are a great couple.( I printed out some pix & showed her).

Warmest Rgs,
Nyarnyar

I agree Nyar Nyar...I hope they have some sweet and romantic moments together in Japan, although it might be too soon, since they're still not that "close"...and they're still awkward around each other, but I think their awkwardness is really cute! :D

aww everyone seems to really be excited for DC and HR... i reallly really like the chemistry between DC and YR. even though i knew it wasnt gonna happen a lil part of me hoped and longed with all it had lol.

hye rin is cute with her demeanor with DC but.. is he ready to love again so soon?? i understand its been two years but i imean.. it definitely doesnt feel like its been long with YR still hanging around and all (i know she has a reason but still) YR still expects DC to love her and her only.. haha yay love triangles abound!!!

as for the birth thing with MH and DW.. MH's reaction is believable i wanna see what happens when DW finds out.. i mean is he just all of a sudden forgive the man who became his father.. and forget the years of hardships that man has caused?? i mean just because of blood he's gonna abandon the mother and brother that took care of and made him who he is??? its a lil hard to believe.. you can say he is angry and bitter over the fact that he had to live that life of hardship.. but why be bitter to the ppl who took care of you and raised you?? it's hard to see DW all of a sudden become enemies with DC even if HR is in between them... these koreans need to learn BROS BEFORE HOS lol jk but anyways i still think that the bond that binds the two brothers is really really strong.. they created each other.. theres no way blood and a girl can break it apart.. if we think realistically.. MAYBE if he really really loved HR but i mean he gave up on her years ago.. and got with her reluctantly.. ahhh there i go rambling well anyways thats my two cents haha hopefully DW and DC remain friends and still go after that bastard shin taehwan

i'm disappointed because in Episode 29 and 30 there were no Dong-chul and Hye-rin moments like in Episode 28...well they went to Rebeca's party but it seems that they haven't seen and shared some thoughts before....they just nodded to each other.. Suprise Suprise Suprise
and Hye-rin went to Dong-chul...but dong-chul is kinda annoyed when he saw Hye-rin........(maybe because he thinks Hye-rin is like a stalker Laugh Laugh Laugh )

Hye rin doesn't know yet that Dong Chul is prosecutor Dong Wook's brother. if she knows, it would be nice agenda like triangle love............Is Hye rin like a stalker? i think not, maybe Dong Chul is not prepared yet to love again coz he always remembers his old love......

...Is Hye rin like a stalker?
She's worse than that. She's a journalist. ;)

I'm not sure if a triangle over Min Hye Rin will really develop between the Lee brothers. Lee Dong Wook is aware that she may be seeing somebody, and he seems to accept it. They seem almost like best friends now. Though I'm sure the Lee family will flip out when he tries to bring her home. :D

Also, whenever you see Ji Hyun and Dong Wook in a scene together, you can still feel the depth of feeling between them. Dong Wook fought to the bitter end to keep Ji Hyun; he just didn't feel the same way to do he same for Hye Rin, and she knew that too.
hye rin is cute with her demeanor with DC but.. is he ready to love again so soon??
I think both parties enjoy their time together, and both parties are friends with their exes. It's been maybe up to 5 years since Young Ran married.
YR still expects DC to love her and her only..
YR has some jealousy toward MHR, but she already acknowledged that LDC/MHR are being fixed together by her father, and that her familiy and the Min family would really like this partnership. In way, it's more similar to how Ji Hyun felt about Hye Rin when she saw them together.

There's a kind of rivalry between YR and LDC over President Guk's successorship. Even thoufh YR wants LDC free of her father for LDC's sake, she also truly believes it is she who should be the heir. After all, as President Guk pointed out, in this world the only person he trusts as a "true friend" is his daughter.

Yup, Lee Dae Hae has been confirmed about leaving the show after Episode 40. Note that the new writer starts Episode 35 or 36 (i.e. this week), and that may have had something to do with it.

http://www.dramabeans.com/2008/12/lee-d ... e-actress/

As you can tell from LDH's words, she may be exhausted, but she also doesn't mince words over her disappointment with the show.

My personal opinion is that this has been bubbling for awhile now, and that the writers had already started moving the story in a way where LDC/MHR wasn't going to carry the show. But, it also seems that the EofE will end after 50 episodes, now that they don't really need to develop LDC/MHR (and the triangle) that much further.

Kim,

Oh, is it real?
If it so, it is really really annoyed & borther our dreams(we expect too much for Song & DH since they never act together before & looks v match/good/cute togehter in this)

Why DH leave the show?????personal matter??

So, it is like Kim Ha Neul in "On Air", if the actress do not want to act in the story, she can leave the show.

We've never heard of this kind in other K dramas & do not agree DH to leave the show like this(almost half of the series), Oh pls. if there is anyone to hold her back?

Kim, pls. help & make me to believe that it is a truth one.

Kim,

Me, too. It's all of a sudden & in shock.

I've read in soompi thread & some said Song tells the writers not to inlcude Love part for him & DH. Is that right?
If so, he is so hearthless& v good in acting(while he is with DH,like I said before, his eyes are so alive & in love, maybe I'm wrong in reading people's mind from apperance).

But I totally disappoint/disgree to reunite Song & YH(some reviews said they will be together at the end if DH leave the show).

Finally, we have to blame it on MBC that they do not allow DH to be the lead & show her character v well in this. Right?

Wamrest Rgds,
Nyarnyar
p.s. By the way, pls. don't forget & promise me even if you stop watching it (I think cause of DH's depart) just drop a mail (or) discuss abt other K drama, Okey?

Some LDH fans suspected SSH pushed the LDC-YR storyline because he himself had recommended Lee Yeon Hee (they did a previous long-form MV together) to the producers for the Young Ran part. He's also defended her when she got criticized for her acting.

It's a mostly unfounded rumour though. SSH has a good reputation as a team player, and the problems with the plotting weren't just fixed to Min Hye Rin. The writer was under so much stress that she left after episode 36. Note that she had been putting together this story for more than a year before they started shooting. When all of the main lead actors/actresses -- including Lee Dae Hae -- signed onto East of Eden, they were given a synopsis of their characters. Those storylines have changed since they've signed onto the show. It's affected everybody. Buzz is that the actor playing Lee Dong Wook isn't happy either with the direction his character is taking toward the end of the sho

LDH probably knows that this could seriously damage her career. MBC may blacklist her now, and KBS and SBS may be reluctant to cast her as a lead in a major project. For the record, Jo Min Ki (playing the lovely Shin Tae Hwan!) has come out in support of Lee Dae Hae. The press release depicts as this being a "sudden" decision, but it's been leaked out that she's been kinda fighting this for weeks.

Except to my sorrows(of our LDH depart, oh how sad! she is really thin & tired in her goodbye photos), how sweet of you to reponse my mail within day. Thank you!

It(BOF)'s an interesting one that I've seen three actors & one actress(she's so cute) in their poster. How about the plot/story? Is it the same like other dramas, love triangle??

Nyar Nyar & Kim,

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to you too!

I'm so disappointed about Lee Da Hae leaving the show :( ...that was the main reason I watched the show. They'll probably also end up killing her off in the show...
I don't blame her for leaving though. Even though I haven't seen a lot of the show, I've read this thread and other forums that said her character wasn't fully developed and wasn't tied in to the main storyline. I wish her luck in her next role and hopefully it'll show her true potential.

Btw...I hope Dong-Chul doesn't end up with Young-Ran. I'd rather have him single...

For me its the best that could happen ...I stopped watching because I got lazy skipping all the LDH scenes but from ep40 I can watch with less skipping again :roll ...nothing against LDH, I like her but that character was the worst I have seen in a Kdrama in years. Her face was just saying "what the hell am I doing here besides stalking some guys and waiting to maybe pimp DC"

OMG i KNOW id rather have dong chul not be with GRACE!
i dont blame LEE da hae for leaving!
im actually supporting her! becus i think MBC used her..
they kept changing the scripts! and the main writer changed..
Omg and if you watched till episode 34..
lee da hae barely had any roles!
shes suppose to be the main lead!
and plus if u watched it u would be confuse at what she was suppose to be becus i know i would..
they practically made her nothing in the drama!
just used her. .
anyways aja aja fighting lee da hae! :)
be strong!
but i wish she can finish the story....
becus i really wanted her to be main lead... ^_^ its okay <3

If LDH leaves, I am going to stop watching this Drama, alot of people, me included, have been waiting for the (Love) scenes between LDC and MHR. From my Opinion, there characters belong together, Young Ran just gets on my nerves, the actress aswellas the character.

Song Seung heon gave his side about the issue
here is the link http://coolsmurf.wordpress.com/2008/12/ ... -decision/

after reading his message...its still unclear for me...i still have many questions for him....like. can Song Seung heon manipulate the script?...so i smell somethig fishy with his statement "Frankly, I don’t think that the character, Lee Dong Chul is able to accept love from so many women. I feel that from the viewers perspective, it would be outright awkward for them to accept such a forced relationship (Dong Chul and Hye Rin) being acted out in front of them. As an actor, I also couldn’t quite accept this story development. But I might have created some misunderstanding after conveying my opinion to the director/screenwriter!."

so what was that?...
Force relationship?--- they promoted that there will be Dong-chul and Hye-rin loveline...and the love triagle between his character to Yeong jong hoon's character...i remember what the PD said that there is really something on their(Dong-chul and Hye-rin) first meeting"...so it means that its not force ralationship....its part of the story!

Hello Kim,

Have read Song's message in Soompi & yeah me too, he shouldn't convey(to lessen the part of him & DH). I do not mean it's his fault but as a lady(like DH), it will be a shame(sorry! if I use the wrong word) if her costar does not want the(love) scenes with her.
As far as I see, the writer can(smmothly), not forced(said by Song) to create the lovely story btw them, like other K drama(sometimes they create unacceptable plots).
And it is really funny also to read his fans complaints to us(DH's fan), & it is not that we(biased) & too expected to see them together. ha ha... it is natural & common sense(feeling) to see our favs; together, Am I right?
But we didn't say anything bad abt Song(he's one of our fav; too).

Anyway, where is our DH's part(EOE) now? pls. update me even I'm too sad to accept & want to know what is happening.

Warmest Rgds,

hello Nyar Nyar!

have you seen the MBC awards night?
boy!MBC receives negative comments?...saying it is the worst ever MBC awards night.
here is the highlight

* Song Seung heon has been criticized , because he won the grand prize and tied up to KMM(i forgot the exact name)...its the first time to have a two winners in the grand prize(MBC is doing everything to re lighten up East of Eden).

i'm glad Park Hye-jin won best new actor. :roll :roll :roll

*MBC removed/ edited Lee Da hae on the poster of East of Eden during the ceremony(even if Lee Da hae wasn't there, how could they removed her, that is really so impolite and very childish)

* Lee Jun-ki spoke his mind,he is a hero to Lee Da hae, he is really the man!
i think he defended Lee Da hae that night?
Anyway, where is our DH's part(EOE) now? pls. update me even I'm too sad to accept & want to know what is happening.
Min Hye-rin finally knows Dong-chul and Dong-wook are siblings!
there were no East of Eden because of the Daesang awards.

nyar nyar i'm just crazy right now, so i came up to edit this picture.

Well Me too. I am sad that Lee Da Hee leaves EOE because I really wanted to see them together in a Love-Relationship but still I am sooo glade she leaves because Her cahracter reeeeeeeally sucks. I fully support her decision to leave but if she changes her mind then I will really hate her. After that treatment she received from MBC (and mabye SSH, i don't know if he really is the reason so I will keep silent to that) they don't deserve her. Better projects will come for her!! I am sure!! :)

Really I don't have anything against SSH. I always thought that he is a handsome guy but his acting ability is kind of hmmm bad. But since EOE I do think that he has improved a lot but ................ but........ What the hell "HE WON THE MBC GRANT AWARD AND SHARED IT WITH KMM (KMM is a lot of an better actor and really deserved it fair and to his merits?????" what the hell are they doing.... yes yes he has improved too, but still not that much... I mean even the newbie Park Hae Jin outshines him!!! I haven't seen Park Hae Jin in another drama but he really suprised mee... so let him share the grand price with KMM. MBC you really don't know what you doo!! ncncnc
If it really was that MBC had to winners for the GRand price fine but I think that JI Sung and KMM should have shared it together. I mean Ji Sung's performance at NEW HEART was faboulus and a lot better as SSH. wow ... what a shock and what a insult to KMM for sharing the price with SSH!! really

I really like Lee Dae Hae but I was watching a youtube video with the cast interviewing for a press junket and I thought that Lee Dae didn't look too happy. It also seemed like when Song Seung Hun and Lee Dae were next to each other there was no chemistry and his body language was not very inviting... in other words, .the energy between them seemed strained. It didn't look natural at all. I'm sure there were some conflicting personalities on set.

Oh and Belleza I love your writing style it's enjoyable reading your take on the drama...you make EOE more interesting.

Having LDH stay on would be awkward cause she seems so pointless now, yet at the same time, completely rewriting her off would be more awkward cause I've already been watching this show with the assumption that she's one of the main character. I have been clinging to the hope that Hye Rin would make a revival by getting back together with Dong Wook especially cause I want him to stop this love/hate thing with Ji Hyun who has seriously gotten annoying and somewhat evil.

As for Hye Rin and Dong Chul as a couple: I'm sorry but that would be weird. I had assumed that they would have those "attentive" moments during the beginning, but every time they meet each other it's so... bland. Sine they didn't build a foundation for them to get together in the beginning, wanting them to get together later would be awfully hard (and possibly painful to watch). It would have probably came off as "You guys like each others?! I wasn't even under the impression that you were interested..."

Nyar-Nyar can you tell me where can i watch Heaven's Fate / King Flower Fairy with english sub? please! can you tell me where, i really wanted to see this drama! is it true
that Lee Da hae played the role of a shaman girl here?
My Dearest Kim,

Sorry for the late response!

Oh! you are lucky to see the MBC's award night.

Yes, KMM is worth enough to receive the Grand award.(Have you seen White Tower, he's v good in there).

Rgds to Lotus flower fairy, pls. try in SPC Net. Maybe you can see the whole series there. Also it is an old one and I have watched it by DVD not from air.

Here attached some lovely scene of DH & KMS(the actor).

Warmest Rgds,
Nyarnyar

Dear Kim,

Wow! I'm really glad & appluase for our DH.(Cuhkaritha, Da Hae)
Abt Yi San
,
it's about a kindnest king to his people in Korea ancient history. I heard LSJ & HJM won the best couple for that. Also it is a long one(78 parts).
I've just started it & LSJ now a prince who tried his best to show his ability to his grandfa(the king) & there are alot of people who tried to assassinate him. It is really an interesting & exciting one i.e it makes us want to see what will happen next, next parts.
Yours,

The show really picks up after episode 28 (in fact, you could go through the first 10 episodes and just skip to episode 28 without missing all that much :D )
And, then, after Episode 35 -- when they've brought in the new writer (new PD too?) -- almost all the cheese and whine in East of Eden gets burned off. I mean, the quality of the show makes a rather huge jump. The dialogue is less stylized, instead of quasi-monologues which really only the veteran actors can take advantage of, the lines are more functional, minimal, and it enables actors more space to react off each other and feel each other out. The characterization has significantly improved; now they seem like people trying to survive in their current environment, rather than just accessories to the Lee Dong Chul-Shin Tae Hwan grudge match.

It's not just that the dialogue and characterization changes, the show is also shot differently. The frames are much tighter (probably to save up, but it increases the intimacy of the character), and the action sequences actually feel dangerous. The way rooms are shot is done more artfully and invasively, and you start to feel the living space of each person.

It suddenly becomes a very strong mafia drama, where the Mentor Character (President Guk) becomes an enigmatic source of fear, and where Lee Dong Chul seems to be genuinely walking the line between light and dark. It's a little too late now -- I just wish East of Eden would have always been this way.

The story becomes more interesting after the secret comes out. East of Eden's one story strength is that it's driven by two evil agendas that are at war with each other. The 2nd agenda -- Rebecca's secret -- only "wakes up" after Episode 32 and by Episode 35, it starts to create this corrosive effect all over the story. What was once a war between the Lee Brothers and Shin Tae Hwan turns into a series of private civil wars. Internal combusion within the Shin family. Dissent between the brothers. Evil fighting evil. Up to Episode 23, East of Eden mostly survived on a consistent diet of hatred and seether. After the secret comes out, the hatred collapses into a black despair. It's like a virus that infects everyone with a sense of defeat. Everyone. The "good guys." The "bad guys." And you start to realize that this is a bigger monster than Shin Tae Hwan himself.

Ji Hyun's character is a great example. After the secret, you presume that she's trying to protect her son's heirship to the company. But, she's also struggling to mantain her family unit and her bond with him as wife and partner, and she starts to see her husband in the image of the woman who rejected her. Lee Dong Chul can't help but see his life as a horrible waste (to give up his life to the son of his worst enemy), and yet his love for his false brother comes out so strongly, as he too is terrified that they have no true bond. The secret mutates into a cancer upon each family, far more frightening than the actual facts and far more insidious than Shin Tae Hwan's original sin.

I agree with Belleza for the good criticism & comments on the plot of this EOE. It's really drag the viewers in long way(gives us the expectations-means what will happen next btwn our favs; Am I right, my dear Kim??), Sorry if I use the wrong translation & now (I assume) they just cut it off like bad guys go & good guys win.

Anyway, we can just thank MBC for using our favs;(DH, SSH, DNO, YJH.... altogether in a series.

Warmest Rgds,
Nyarnyar
p.s- To my dear Kim,
how about DH to pair with Kan Ji hwan(Hong Gil Dong) (or) Song IL g**k(Jumong) in her next project, Oh, it will be so sweet & nice right?hee hee (it's just my wish)
