[HanCinema's Drama Review] "She Gets Married Thrice" Episode 33

2014/03/08 | 568 views | Permalink

It's another typical day in the "She Gets Married Thrice" universe. More stony silent dinners contrasted with bright and cheerful ones. At least for the first few minutes. Then Eun-soo is tossed into crisis mode and, with more energy than I can ever remember her seeing to date, rushes to her daughter and demands an explanation for everything that's been going on in her ex-husband's household since the matter of child custody was resolved.

I like Tae-won's resigned reaction to the whole situation. He reacts to Eun-soo the same way that he used to react to his family. Just a resigned sort of acceptance of whatever she's saying. Now, Tae-won does not act that way with his family anymore- he's turned very hostile to his mother and his wife, having realized that neither of them are putting Seul-gi on the top of their priority list, when Seul-gi is the only person Tae-won actually genuinely cares about.

Or is she? Yes, now that we finally have Eun-soo and Tae-won interacting with one another in the same general area again, it's all the more obvious. These two still have a lingering attachment to each other. Even faded out from the aftermath of the divorce and the familial problems that caused the split-up in the first place, Eun-soo and Tae-won clearly feel more attached and comfortable with one another than they do with any other character in the drama.

Contrast Chae Rin and Joon-goo, who all too painfully just don't get it. Chae-rin finally meets the object which she thinks has been destroying her marriage, and completely fails to realize that Eun-soo, like Tae-won, quite literally does not care about anything except Seul-gi's well being. Joon-goo again tries to make amends with Eun-soo, and again fails to realize that he's not communicating to her any of his actual feelings, assuming he has any. It's extremely clear from Eun-soo's statements this episode that she's under some misunderstandings concerning Joon-goo's attitude. But the onus is on him to explain this stuff to her- not Eun-soo to suss it out on her own.

Still, just because their current marriages are disintegrating does not in itself appear to be a clear argument for Eun-soo and Tae-won to get back together. Although if that's the direction we're going for it certainly justifies the drama's deliberate pacing- after everything they've gone through that comfort must be awfully tempting. In the meantime, though, at least Seul-gi's having a fun time with her aunt and(possibly future uncle. So cute!
