K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Finale

There is something about familiar happy endings that touch my heart. And as Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) and Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) give marriage another shot, they made sure not to commit the mistakes of the past and do it right this time. The way they portrayed a love-filled episode, despite the routine of daily struggles proved…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 15

This one was a filler episode, which consisted of all the fluffy stuff. I felt like because Episode 14 was too good, the drama ended there and these last two episodes were just fillers to satisfy our eyes with more cheesy couple time. But overall, seeing Jo Jung-suk reprise his role as the feisty Kang…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 14

It was really satisfying to see Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) finally standing firm on a decision after seeing him struggle with his every life-changing move. Since the beginning, we all see him as someone who quickly bows out whenever something difficult happens, and in the latest episodes, we continue seeing him break his own promise of…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 13

Things have really been interesting lately, especially with how the plot twists were laid out. So we joined Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) in her journey to the past, but she incidentally tagged Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) along with her. And Woo-jin's first task of the day? It was to make sure that her Dad would not go…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 12

I loved this episode. It is all about Joo-hyuk's (Ji Sung) road to maturity. All season long we were witnessing how he turned from being the selfish, immature husband to the loving, selfless friend of everyone. The heart-to-heart confession with Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) was perfectly acted by the one and only Ji Sung. I could…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 11

One thing I realized while watching this episode was that there was the love of Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) for Hye-won (Kang Hanna) had no strong foundation. He had no memories with Hye-won; he doesn't even remember their own wedding. All his memories consisted of Woo-jin and their kids. Hye-won was a mere image in his…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 10

So let's talk about how this episode explained that Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) and Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) are really fated to love each other no matter where on earth's timeline they may live. We started the episode with Joo-hyuk and Hye-won's (Kang Hanna) marriage starting to crumble. It's partly Joo-hyuk's fault for being indifferent to his…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 9

I don't know if it's just me or there are also other people out there who are still supportive of Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) despite everything that's been happening with him right now. I know it's easy to take sides in this drama, especially when you empathize with Woo-jin (Han Ji-min), and I get where the…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 8

Making the wrong decision is still fate. In this episode, Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) learned the hard way of facing the consequences of one's actions. After witnessing the supposed "kiss" (it didn't happen) between Jong-hoo (Jang Seung-jo) and Woo-jin (Han Ji-min), he lost his cool and desperately searched everywhere for the homeless man who "helped" him…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 7

"There is no correct answer in love." I like this newfound friendship between Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) and Joo-eun (Park Hee-bon) in this alternate timeline. We all know they were not really friends in their original lives as the real Woo-jin was aloof towards the real Joo-eun. Or maybe because Woo-jin was just too stressed out…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 6

The second lead game is in full swing in this episode, and boy, my heart is already feeling the burn of this ship. When Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) mentioned that she doesn't feel any spark with Jong-hoo (Jang Seung-jo), I suddenly realized that this isn't the timeline that I want the original couple to end up…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 5

Ah, I just love Woo-jin's mother. She is the most genuine character in this drama despite her illness. Whenever she sees her son-in-law, she just transforms into this sweet child hoping to be showered with care and attention. What an adorable Mom! The difference between Joo-hyuk and Hye-won Hye-won (Kang Hanna) is intentionally flirting with…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 4

I totally understand the ratings increase... This show is just killing it! I loved everything about this episode, especially the Woo-jin scenes! Spoiled bratinella Hey, we all knew this is bound to happen, right? Hye-won (Kang Hanna), being the rich urban girl that she is, apparently feels uncomfortable with her own in-laws. I also didn't…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 3

This entire episode focused on how Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) managed to drastically change his life after that trip with the time machine. He now lives an affluent life with his new wife, Hye-won (Kang Hanna). Not only that, Hye-won is apparently the only daughter of a rich corporate chairman, which makes her a chaebol heiress!…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 2

Is the time travel destination dependent on the coin? If Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) uses another coin that's not minted in 2006, will he still go to that year? It's interesting how the time travel aspect is really shaping up now! The episode started off with Joo-hyuk's vivid dream of being a college student again. We…
