Preview Episode 20 My Golden Life: From Heaven to Hell

Scene "My Golden Life"episode 20

After watching episode 19 again with English subtitles and the preview for episode 20, this line popped up immediately “From Heaven to Hell”. Now father Choi had found out the truth before Ji An could tell herself, all the Chois have in mind is to turn her life into hell to revenge on father and mother Seo! They are going to show their true colors in the most ugly way you can imagine!

My heart is aching for both Ji An and Do Kyung. I have shivers like experiencing a horror event. How can Ji An survive without breaking down? How will Do Kyung be able to watch his parent’s behavior to punish Ji An for lying to them? Although Do Kyung intends to keep his commitment for the arranged marriage, he does care for Ji An. There is no love in the Choi family. The Choi parents are as cold as ice! Will Ji Soo turn her back to Ji An too? It will be hard to watch episode 20, but I will!

Episode 18: It Ended with a Kiss

Kiss Episode 18 "My Golden Life"

However, not the kiss for the start of a love relationship. No, a very, very sad goodbye kiss. The beginning of the end!

While being drunk after the team celebration of the success of the
40th anniversary opening event, Ji An wanted to say goodbye and thank Do Kyung for being such a good brother and confirm she did well as she wouldn’t have the courage after the end of the event and her confession to the Choi family. Tears were flowing from her eyes. Although Do Kyung stated they should not meet again, he did kiss her!

 
But how much did this kiss actually mean for him? Personally, I have very mixed feelings, because why kiss someone when you just said you don’t want to meet again? In my opinion, Do Kyung should not have kissed Ji An at all! She barely realized her changed feelings for him. This kiss will only cause Ji An more heartache, because she knows Do Kyung wouldn’t break his word for the marriage commitment with Sora!

That’s not all. As the end of the preview for episode 19 shows, Do Kyung is not even willing to acknowledge what is really in his heart, when Ji An asks for it. “They have to go different paths. Can’t even meet again. So what is there to confirm?” Do Kyung didn’t change a bit. He is the same unfeeling man only living to the rules of his family! Do Kyung is making
Ji An sad …. again.

I don’t know what writer So has in mind for us, but I really hope she will give Ji An the courage to go a fully separate way from Do Kyung, after the 40th anniversary event has ended. Not even accepting the job offer
Do Kyung’s friend Gi Tae will do to her. Maybe when there is not a trace left of Ji An, maybe then Do Kyung will realize the rigidness of his behavior and what he has given up because of that!

Tomorrow, Saturday November 4 at 19:55 KST, we will know more!

Scene Episode 15 "My Golden Life"

At the beginning of this episode Ji An confesses to Do Kyung she is not his sister Eun Suk. Her twin sister Ji Soo is his sister Eun Suk. Do Kyung gets very angry and falls back into his harsh and cold behavior of earlier. Initially, he isn’t willing to grant her the opportunity to confess to father and mother Choi herself, after she has finished the preparations for the
Haesung Group 40th anniversary event. When she asks to delay until after the event because of Ji Tae’s wedding, he is still not willing.

Episode 17: The Awakening of New Feelings

Park Si Hoo as Choi Do KyungEpisode 17 of “My Golden Life” was characterized by the awakening of new feelings between Do Kyung and Ji An. No longer bonded as brother and sister both of them are flooded by new feelings for each other.

Park Si Hoo (Choi Do Kyung) & Shin Hye Sun (Seo Ji An)

Remember when they were in Namdaemun and Do Kyung didn’t want to eat the food Ji An ordered at the restaurant? Look here who’s eating? Do Kyung!

Park Si Hoo (Choi Do Kyung) & Shin Hye Sun (Seo Ji An)

It was wonderful to experience how Cupido was shooting his arrows to both Do Kyung and Ji An!

 

Although “My Golden Life” is a family drama, it feels like a detective to me at the same time.

From the start I am wondering who took the child Eun Suk out of the car?  Was it her mother’s sister Jin Hee? Somehow I have the feeling the car accident of mother Choi, when she was looking for her lost child, wasn’t a car accident and she wasn’t meant to survive! Then who wanted to get her out of the way? Also I think GM Min is involved in the disappearance and the return of Choi Eun Suk. The camera is often holding on her and her thoughful eyes. She didn’t feel at ease when Do Kyung asked her questions about the DNA test which brought Choi Eun Suk back. And what is the role of this couple?

Scene episode 17 "My Golden Life"

There must be a reason why they are surfacing again. Especially, because at the end of episode 17 father Choi received a letter that Seo Ji An isn’t Choi Eun Suk! The woman in yellow was the one who brought the existence of the lost Choi Eun Suk to the attention of mother Choi!

Remains the ultimate question: who is the puppet player? So far everything seems to be aimed at the fall of mother Choi and the passing of her marriage with father Choi. Seo Ji An is used as a chess piece in the game. I can’t figure out yet, if it was meant to introduce the fake
Choi Eun Suk from the start. If so, then mother Seo is even darker as she has already become, after pushing forward her own daughter as the lost
Choi Eun Suk!

Ah, can’t wait for episode 18! No doubt, hurdles will appear for Do Kyung and Ji An and the feelings of love between them!

It doesn’t look good for Ji An after she confessed to Do Kyung that she isn’t his real sister. Do Kyung fell back into his ice cold attitude from when they were enemies. Of course, he was told shocking news, but since they had grown closer to each other lately, he should have shown more consideration with Ji An. So disappointing…..

“My Golden Life” Episodes 11 & 12 English Subs

Episode 11 is my most favorite episode until now! Finally, life is going smoother for Ji An! She has started as a regular employee at Haesung Apparel Marketing Group. Not to everyone’s liking though. Unexpectedly, she had to show up and introduce herself as Choi Eun Suk to a group of ladies at the gallery of mother Choi. Someone leaked the secret! However, Ji An passed the test cum laude with the help of oppa Do Kyung! 🙂

An old scar at her right little toe noticed by Do Kyung brought an old conversation back into Ji An’s mind. The words spoken by mother Seo were not in sync with the time the child Choi Eun Suk got lost! She could not be Choi Eun Suk! Ji An investigated the old case and in the end found proof for her suspicion. She is not Choi Eun Suk, but Seo Ji An!
