Sorry (for those who care) I haven’t been around that much. RL has a way of taking over and my time management skills aren’t that great.
So any way. Recently I’ve been attempting to watch Rascal Sons just because I’m a Seo In Guk fan. SHOUT OUT TO ANSWER ME 1997!!! I struggle with this show so much. The fact that there are multiple plots doesn’t bother me. It’s the plots themselves. Catch up below..
This family drama will tell the story about the different characteristics of sons and deals with marriage and divorce in the means of trying to find the justice of love. —HanCinema First Son, Yoo Hyun Ki (Lee Sung Jae), is a widower and single dad with a daughter. He hasn’t opened up his heart in a long time, but then Sung In Ok (Myung Se Bin) a single mom, enters his life, and he falls in love. Second Son, Yoo Min Ki (Ryu Soo Young) is a martial arts fantasy novelist who has been in love with the same woman, Lee Shin Young (Han Hye Rin) for ten years. Only she’s now engaged to his best friend. Third Son, Yoo Seung Ki (Seo In Guk), is the biggest troublemaker of them all. He marries his wife, Mi Rim (Yoon Se In) but divorces her because he’s a playboy. They married because he got her pregnant and has no choice in the matter. —Dramabeans
The parents are played by Na Moon Hee (awesome actress) and Park In Hwan. Lets talk about Yoo Seung Ki and his douchebagginess O. M. F. G.!! He’s a serial cheater that fears no consequences for his actions. Finally his wife had enough of his shitiness and divorces him. Momma goes balistic and wants them back together ASAP. Even tho’ he’s a fucktard that habitually cheats on his wife. But, hey… She feels Mirim (wife) can make him grow up. What the fuck ever. Once a cheater. Always a cheater. I start cussing at the computer when the mom puts the wife in awkward positions concerning Seungi. Even divorced and on parental home lock down he’s still a selfish bastard. Why doesn’t momma get a clue and let it go? You raised a douchebag and should not be forcibly subjecting an woman to that. Mirim made a good point about the situation when talking to the brother, “I couldn’t take it anymore and I didn’t want my son to grow seeing me bitter.” I don’t know about you, but that says it all right there. Did I mention Seungi is the youngest son?
The oldest son Yoo Hyun Gi is played by Lee Sung Jae. His story is actually palatable to a point. Widower with a small child vowing to stay true to his dead wife forever. His personality is very timid and he’s all about filial piety, a K Drama staple. He meets another widowed parent at his daughter’s school, they end up in some K Drama situations and slowly but surely they start falling for each other. Ok. Great! I’m good so far. That’s when his nosy ass mom gets involved. Not sure what is but she seems to have a problem with the piano teacher and takes it upon herself to call an old classmate to hook up with him. Old Bittie say what?? The classmate, Sera is your typical K Drama love triangle second lead, selfish and delusional. Apparently only her feelings matter.
Second son is Yoo Min Gi played by Ryu Soo Young. On the surface he seemed normal. A manhwa writer posing a female because he writes romances how cute is that? Shit went down hill when he had to pick up his bf’s girl from the airport. The look on his face when she came out the terminal clued me in to his plot. Crap… A 10 year one sided love pine. Wunnnnddddeeerrffffullllll. At some point you have to let that shit go especially considering him and pinee kept getting put in pain inducing (his side) situation. Which come to head when they nosy-ass boundary less chick goes snooping thru his computer and finds A PASSWORD PROTECTED FILE which to normal people means it’s not for your eyes. Now she’s all pissy, his best friend’s mother heard the conversation and she’s pissy and then his hyung accidentally told the best friends and he’s not pissy. He’s actually more reflective and sad <—- interesting twist. Now Mingi is off in the wilds licking his wounds.
So that’s where I’m at. I don’t know if you noticed, but I seem to have a little problem with the mother. She and her shennanigans just rub me the wrong way. I guess because her actions seem to come from a place of what SHE thinks is good for her sons. Not what her sons think or any of the people it affects. This show is slated for 50 episodes and I’m only Ep. 11. I hope I can make it. There aren’t really any new or old dramas I want to watch and that makes me sad.
