Heard it Through the Grapevine – Week 11

Wow, I wonder how Bommie is able to withstand living with her in-laws, because the cliffhanger of this week’s episodes have us on the edge of the seat, when Daddy and Mama Han announce to have Bommie thrown out of the house. It’s awesome she has In Sang and Yi-ji with her, be it physically or literally, as the siblings immediately form a “wall” around Bommie, as their parents dropped the bomobshell.

Daddy and Mama Han treat Bommie as the instigator of the “strike” of their household employees (or so I infer), as Bommie and In Sang took it upon them to make breakfast as well as do the maintenance of the house, as all the employees take a few days off. As usual, the rich adults never think about the root of the problem, but rather only look at the surface. In Episode 11, Mama Han already has the notion of throwing Bommie out of the house, as long as she fails Tutor Park’s test. Episode 12 strengthens Mama Han’s resolution, as the strike happened, and In Sang joining in the household chores.

Of course, the idea did not just grow in Mama Han’s mind, but Young Na, being a shit-stirrer, add fuel to fire, especially when she found out that Hyun Soo met In Sang late one night. I have no idea why people like Young Na exists, but they apparently do, and are pretty common. She tells Mama Han that getting rid of Bommie is the best, because even if they employ new helpers, they’ll continue to be instigated by Bommie. The adults are getting increasingly ridiculous as they probably realise their offsprings are no longer under their control.

Daddy and Mama Han simply refuse to acknowledge the crux of the problem with their household employees stems from the vaguely written and unfair contract that they gave to the employees. All the helpers, from the butler and his wife, Secretary Lee, to the kitchen helpers whom we finally see, are coerced to sign the contract which offers them no hint of retirement money, and the contract binds them to ridiculous rules and long working hours, which includes always to be on standby (for Secretary Lee and the driver for Mama Han).

With five weeks left, I wonder how the rich adults will learn their lesson, if any is being dished to them. It’s amusing, but at the same time disconcerting, to see how the rich all behaving like control freaks. No wonder Secretary Lee thinks they’re crazy. I do hope the employees and the young ‘uns will succeed in their revolution, though what’s revolution without some bloodshed (of course not literally)? Show is not one that depicts the importance of having moral fibres, but I believe one of the take home message will be: money is not everything.

  1. The parents are so disconnected from the reality. How could they imagined to tell Bom to leave the house without her baby????
    I think Bom has the power because she is the mom of their grand kid.
    This drama is thrilling!

    1. The parents and their friends are totally unbelivably selfish. Everything is for their own pleasure and reputation only.
      Yep, this drama is absolutely interesting!
