Episode 30 Review: Heard It Through the Grapevine ~ END

InSeoLoveHad i said i am at loss for words would be an immense lie since inside this article can be found a few thousands of words. Truth be told, at this very moment i am in denial, i can’t believe Heard It Through the Grapevine reached the end and i never thought the closing curtain would have such an impact on me. Even though i was preparing myself to bid farewell this drama smoothly, after i re-watched and screen-capped the last episode i felt overwhelmed by bittersweet waves. Before moving to the main part of this review/recap/opinion, i would like to thank the whole cast, the writer, the director and everyone who worked hard so that us, the audience, would partake in this beautiful journey with a wide variety of emotions and see it to the very end and in the first place of the Monday-Tuesday ratings ride for the last time (11.7%). 감사합니다!

Let’s just think of it as a post-romantic indirect middle finger from our innocent Yi Ji.

bscap2582Secretary Min had an accident due to immense exercising and she has already submitted her letter of resignation, but she won’t be working for attorney Yoo’s newly found law office. She’s already done with her moral obligations towards the team she was working with and she lets attorney Han know that he will find himself in a pretty uncomfortable situation. Her last gift is an opportunity to get out of the prison he built himself for himself alone and she lets him know that In Sang won’t return since he intends to get out of attorney Han’s shadow. Secretary Yang’s quite enraged for someone who’s not wielding utter power! Attorney Han thinks that secretary Min’s faction will move on with a class action which will result in damaging severely Hansong’s reputation.

bscap2583Secretary Lee has already interviewed the people willing to become her successors and she will let them know soon enough her decision, there’s even a stipend for getting interviewed! Can I get interviewed every day and receive a stipend? Secretary Lee thinks that madame Choi’s moving in the shadows with the whole interview process in order to reject her resignation, but madame Choi points out various reasons why she doesn’t want to hire some of the people who appeared in front of her. The conversation isn’t over, but Ji Young Ra and Eom So Jeong’s appearance paused it for the time being. Since she didn’t reply to their calls they took the situation in their own hands in order to find out more information about what’s going on inside the almighty household with In Sang being the major topic of discussion!

 bscap2585bscap2584

bscap2588Madame Choi says that she was the one to let him go for the time being as an ode to older days’ traditions when a new husband used to spend some time with his wife’s family! Of course, both of them are aware of the truth and you can sense their irony amidst madame Choi’s failures to infuse a deeper meaning to everything going on! Ji Young Ra disapproves of her “decision” to let In Sang dwell in a commoner’s lifestyle whereas So Jeong points out that he might be more comfortable with Seo Bom’s parents! As for the people they witnessed while entering the almighty household it’s because she’s thinking of changing the house personnel! Secretary Lee’s thoughts are so spot on how shameless madame Choi and attorney Han can be, they can never get enough of embarrassing themselves in front of everyone, but that’s what keeps their friendships alive according to the housemaid! Since all interviewees got rejected with mere excuses she will have to set a timeline, she can’t stay there forever!

bscap2586bscap2587

bscap2589Teacher Park messages In Sang in order to find out if the young couple made a decision when it comes to their studies. In Sang will take his books at work in an attempt to study, but Seo Bom lets him know that the night will be tough since many shipments will arrive. She doesn’t want him to exhaust himself since he intends to dive way too much in an overburdened schedule. In Sang lets Seo Bom know of teacher Park’s message, but she thinks it’s going to be too tough for both of them to study for the bar exam, especially since they’re working at the same time. Under these circumstances it’s Seo Bom the who should be studying, but she thought that the rock-paper-scissors decision was a joke between them! Except for that, In Sang still considers she’s got more potential in passing the exam, but Seo Bom doesn’t quite agree, even if she studies she wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it. Slight tension rises and Jin Ae ahjumma alongside Hyeong Shik ahjussi have already noticed that something’s not flowing well!

bscap2590bscap2591 bscap2593

bscap2594Seo Bom tells him that he ran away from the almighty household in order to start anew under different parameters and perspectives, but she feels pressured every time he’s urging her to study for the bar exam. In Sang doesn’t want to be someone who ran away from home and except for his own future he blocked his wife’s too. Jin Ae ahjumma and Noo Ri are eavesdropping their conversation! They start their conversation anew from the top of the hill, first of all they must find out if they want to pass the bar exam and if it’s really their life goal since the parameters are different now. Back then they wanted to earn the trust of In Sang’s parents and passing the bar exam was the only way to become a part of their world. The circumstances have changed now and they’ll talk about it via messages! Seo Bom wonders if In Sang wants her to study for the exam without any specific goal because he’s going through all these struggles because of her, but he never said he’s going through hardships because of her and she’s the one who agreed in the first place with everything teacher Park said in order to improve their lives!

bscap2596 bscap2597bscap2599 bscap2598

bscap2600Exchanging stares while writing to each other was priceless, Seo Bom has a lethal stare and she points out that she didn’t simply agree and one reason why they shouldn’t do it was if they only did it in order to show off to their parents! The conversation gradually loses its arch meaning and it becomes one of these nonsensical couple quarrels when everything pops up to the surface! If In Sang doesn’t find it wrong to show off a bit then he should be the one to pass the exam and even win his parents’ trust anew! As for returning back to the almighty household, he’s the one who knows the answer better than anyone else! In Sang decides to leave for the time being and finds Jin Ae ahjumma and Noo Ri out of their room while Seo Bom remains at the corner of the bed like an adorable lethal squirrel!

bscap2601bscap2602

bscap2603The house personnel and teacher Park have gathered at secretary Lee’s house and the housemaid has to go through many interviews in the morning, but secretary Lee’s afraid they will end up staying at the almighty household forever! Butler Park and the housemaid intend to open up a restaurant and teacher Park points out he wants both In Sang and Seo Bom to continue their studies, if they don’t they will lose their last opportunity! Teacher Park has saved a more than welcome amount of money, but he wasn’t pretty clear with what he has in mind for both of them, he waits for them until they present a clear reason for wanting to sit for the bar exam. Since they’re going through a tough period butler Park thinks that it would be best for everyone if teacher Park showed them directly his unconditional support in order to motivate them even further. If attorney Han finds out that In Sang will be continuing his studies under teacher Park’s support he’s going to burst like a hot-air balloon!

bscap2604

bscap2605In Sang’s working at the convenience store and their previous quarrel echoes once again in his mind. Seo Bom isn’t at her finest either since they exchanged tough words under tough circumstances! Yi Ji’s aware that secretary Min resigned but madame Choi doesn’t want Yi Ji to keep talking about her with attorney Han adding that her way of thinking is problematic and even though she worked for him throughout the years it was a mistaken decision since the very beginning. Their eyes aren’t perfect in order to notice what everyone may be hiding in his/her brain and another example has to be teacher Park. The real problem is the fact that all of them are on the same side and they come from the same kind; cancerous beings! Yi Ji’s definitely disgusted with her parents’ way of thinking!

bscap2608 bscap2606bscap2607 bscap2609bscap2610bscap2611

bscap2612She wanted to contact her brother, but since he forgot his cellphone at home Yi Ji informs Seo Bom on the latest events and her father’s thoughts, apparently everyone is wrong except for attorney Han and madame Choi since they come from a higher breed! At that point Seo Bom informs Yi Ji that she had a fight with In Sang, it was one of these moments when fights occur when both of them feel sorry for each other and she’s going to apologize later on. Yi Ji informs Seo Bom that attorney Han thinks that teacher Park is influencing them and lets her know that she’s worried about everyone since his father talks this way about them. Seo Bom’s lost in her own thoughts, but she’s not the only one, it’s one of these rare moments when someone else’s words echo in attorney Han’s mind and apparently secretary Min’s warning had an impact on him, especially now that everyone, one after the other, leaves the almighty household. The echo of the words gets multiplied inside all this emptiness.

bscap2614 bscap2615bscap2616bscap2617 bscap2619bscap2620

bscap2622In Sang returns back home physically and emotionally exhausted and Jin Ae ahjumma lets him know that Seo Bom fell asleep early in the morning. Even though she’s tired she wants to talk to In Sang right now and she lets him know that she talked to Yi Ji and received information concerning teacher Park, but In Sang is one step ahead since teacher Park passed by the convenience store. In Sang told him they’ll do it together. At the new office, Attorney Yoo asks teacher Park to wear something different and he’s considering it! As for the salary, of course they are aware that he has some money and Je Hoon had asked him a question during one of his lectures back in 2009: it’s a private market, but is it ethical for him to earn so much money by teaching kids? Teacher Park wants to get paid the minimym wage while working there and both attorney Yoo and Je Hoon appreciate his decision!

bscap2623bscap2624 bscap2625bscap2626bscap2627

bscap2628Secretary Yang thinks that Hansong should expand its corporate social responsibility program while detaching it from Hansong and turning it into a separate foundation. Attorney Han meets right away with Dae Hyun and he wants him to fulfill this plan and the fund will be administered only with his final approval. In addition, he can change the program if he wants to. Just like attorney Han, Dae Hyun will have someone else do the dirty business for him and in this occasion it will be his daughter-in-law. Attorney Han doesn’t quite like the idea, but he can’t do otherwise.

Τhey propagate like a mice do!

bscap2629bscap2630

bscap2632Teacher Park and secretary Lee arrive at the humble house and all of them become aware of his intentions to teach Seo Bom and In Sang for free, leaving Jin Ae ahjumma and Hyeong Shik ahjussi speechless! Teacher Park will provide them all the necessary space where they can live and study and a big plus is that the apartment’s nearby! Everyone’s more than happy and quite thankful towards them, but the ones to be thankful are teacher Park and secretary Lee since Seo Bom and In Sang through their interactions changed them towards a more than welcome direction. In Sang’s parents aren’t aware of this yet, but soon they will find out and he’s curious to know what they would say, but In Sang is not alone in this emotionally fortified moment, he has many people caring about him, especially Seo Bom.

 bscap2633bscap2631

bscap2634The interviews go on at the almighty household, but this one got delayed because In Sang and Seo Bom decided to appear. It’s been sometime since all four gathered at that living room were atrocious things happen! Both madame Choi and attorney Han have put on their clinical veil and the meeting takes place. The house personnel is nervous and they can’t wait to find out the outcome of this conversation since pretty much anything could happen after all this time of absence! In Sang and Seo Bom let them know of teacher Park’s personal scholarship under very specific stipulations. The first one is for In Sang to give up his inheritance and the second one is if they fail to pass the bar exam and they still want to become lawyers they will attend law school. Neither madame Choi nor attorney Han are pleased and he points out that everything that’s sufficient for others is not good enough for those two! In Sang says that teacher Park wants them to escape this kind of pressure and the third stipulation is if they pass the exam with high honors they will never work at a place like Hansong. The almighty couple starts spitting their poison upon teacher Park whom according to attorney Han got rich from poor families’ money while teaching their children and he wonders whether they want to study and raise Jin Young with such money! Seo Bom points out that he’s supporting them because the government is incapable of doing so! Don’t you dare use the word “hubris” because nemesis awaits for you in the corner, attorney Han!

bscap2635bscap2636 bscap2638bscap2637 bscap2640bscap2639bscap2642

bscap2645Now that they have a crystal clear goal they intend to do their best in order to pass the exam no matter how hard it may be. In Sang is neither an heir nor a kid, choosing a different path from the one his father walked upon is his very own decision. Madame Choi can’t hold back her tears and leaves immediately the living room and shortly after attorney Han follows her. It’s been some time since we witnessed attorney Han’s scepter of ultimate power, its glory has faded! In Sang witnesses his mother crying and gives her a heartfelt hug letting her know that she can visit them anytime she wants to, but she doesn’t want to. Still, if she changes her mind she can always pass by. Attorney Han stands like he got mummified while he was wielding the last scepter of his dynasty! Both of them greet him and he tells them that they had been brainwashed, but In Sang lets him know that it was a decision they made on their own since the stipulations were to their liking. The whole South Korea sensed attorney Han’s wrath who pretty much broke everything that could get broken while wielding his scepter!

bscap2647 bscap2649bscap2651 bscap2652bscap2653bscap2654 bscap2655bscap2657bscap2659 bscap2660

bscap2662Seo Bom and In Sang have arrived at their new apartment and they’re filling their library! All the beautiful people have gathered to help them in their new beginning! Butler Park and the housemaid will be living on another floor; In Sang and Seo Bom will always have a chance to eat something! Secretary Lee wants to know how to take care of the baby in order to start working as a babysitter and Jin Young will be an open book to her while Jin Ae ahjumma can finally rest for a while! Hyeong Shik ahjussy will be arriving soon and later on Cheol Shik ahjussi and Noo Ri will pay them a visit! All these people who used to work at the almighty household remind In Sang of his parents!

bscap2661 bscap2664bscap2665bscap2663bscap2668bscap2669

bscap2671Madame Choi doesn’t like the new employees and she wants to escape using their villa in Hannam-dong for shelter! Attorney Han won’t let her since they have more serious problems! Yi Ji has applied to go study abroad and she’ll attend a college there as well. Attorney Han can’t do otherwise but let her go, he lost once child already, he can’t afford to lose Yi Ji too.

bscap2672

bscap2674The housemaid, butler Park and secretary Lee are in a like-minded mood as In Sang since their new apartment with all these people brought back memories of their time back in the almighty household, but teacher Park receives different vibes and the kids themselves feel differently by now! He sets the rules! In Sang won’t be coming back home before six, he will be studying at school until then since Seo Bom was left behind and needs some time to study alone. In ten days they will sit for another mock exam that will define the flow of his strategy. If they don’t succeed in the bar exam nothing is lost, there’s always the law school waiting for them! Concerning Seo Bom’s bachelor’s degree certificate she will have to take the first level test. Even though both of them wasted a month and they didn’t move on with their studies it was definitely worth it so they shouldn’t regret it even if it had its own impact upon their studying process.

bscap2673

bscap2676Je Hoon’s at the humble house and Hyeong Shik ahjussi still can’t believe that things have started flowing well, it’s almost a dreamlike condition! They didn’t expect teacher Park to help them out that much to the point of being unconditional. Je Hoon was one of his students, one of those he wouldn’t forget since he made some noise when he told him about the amount of money he makes. At that time many of his colleagues were working secretly as tutors! It’s only illegal if you get caught, if you don’t get caught it’s only a habit! Noo Ri wonders whether Je Hoon ever did it or not, but he was too scared to proceed in the first place! Jin Ae ahjumma would like to partake in the conversation, but she has to take care of Jin Young! As for Noo Ri meeting Je Hoon’s parents it’s getting delayed since she likes the way they are now and Je Hoon points out that she’s hesitant because his salary is too low! Cheol Shik ahjussi takes Je hoon’s side, he might not be making that much money at this very moment, but he’s not one of Hansong’s slaves, it’s something that makes life more carefree and exciting at the same time despite the low salary! Noo Ri’s worried that he might force that lifestyle on her too! Hyeong Shik ahjussi points out that if they really love each other they shouldn’t be worrying that much about the salaries and Noo Ri can’t help it but feel quite guilty at that moment! All Je Hoon and Noo Ri want is time to take care of everything by themselves!

 bscap2679bscap2678

bscap2680Secretary Kim’s father appeared at Hansong and wants to talk to him since he couldn’t get in touch with his son who’s quite busy as an attorney in top secret cases! Attorney Han appears and refers to secretary Kim as attorney Kim to maintain his lies, so he must repay attorney Han’s generosity in the future according to secretary Yang! Everything went fine and secretary Kim’s father is more than pleased! Secretary Kim’s aware that attorney Han will use his weakness to the fullest, even against him if he has to. He’s worked enough for Hansong to know pretty well how manipulative attorney Han is and he intends to tell the truth to his father and eventually resign. He wants secretary Yang to bid attorney Han farewell for him.

bscap2682 bscap2686bscap2685

bscap2687Attorney Han can’t believe that the most unexpected and most stupid of all just resigned, but why does he feel so empty? I guess that was a rhetoric question! Je Hoon arrives at the office and finds out that secretary Kim has arrived and they can’t act otherwise but accept him! Secretary Kim will be the one to meet the high officials once they require information since they don’t have the same power Hansong possesses! They’re almost a branch of Hansong, the only person missing for the time being is secretary Min who returned back to her hometown and secretary Kim can’t hide his feelings! Cheol Shik ahjussi will go to the hometown of a friend and he doesn’t reveal the truth to his brother! But he understands more than he appears to be and urges him to stay there with her if possible!

bscap2688bscap2689

bscap2691The training for the new secretaries has began and they actually have more people than they need, secretary Yang will pick up the chosen ones and attorney Han will progress the most important interview part. Attorney Han points out that he can’t afford to lose her too, but he can’t overlook the Han Trust matter since it’s involved in pretty much everything and her brother must take the blame for misappropriation and embezzlement of the funds. Why aren’t you laughing now secretary Yang? How does the lonely and dark office feel like?

bscap2692

bscap2693At their new office attorney Yoo points out that the brothers of secretaries Min & Yang have different fates, the second one will go to jail due to his sister’s wrongdoings and the first one will be able to clear his name. Secretary Yang would never go to jail since attorney Han needs her by his side. Teacher Park points out that there should some shady negotiations since he heard that secretary Yang feels like resigning as well. Je Hoon thinks that her brother will get a suspended sentence whereas secretary Yang will keep the money but will get exiled forever, after all she’s the one who knows the most about attorney Han’s own wrongdoings! They have already started taking into consideration making secretary Yang to join their ranks!

bscap2695

bscap2696What a great building with all these beautiful people inside it! Everyone’s heading towards his/her own destination. It’s secretary Lee’s next lesson on how to make baby food and Seo Bom will keep up with her studies. Secretary Yang suddenly finds herself inside a car consisting of the housemaid, butler Park, Cheol Shik ahjussi and secretary Min and she’s quite surprised, especially with the last two! Everyone’s quite happy except for secretary Yang who’s found herself in quite an awkward situation! Another gathering’s taking place at the humble house and the fact that secretary Yang’s negotiations didn’t work out exploded like a bomb to Hyeong Shik ahjussi’s ears, just like Je Hoon and attorney Yoo’s attempts were futile even though they possessed tremendous amounts of evidence.

bscap2697 bscap2699bscap2700 bscap2701

bscap2702Secretary Yang’s inside Seo Bom’s room with secretary Min and Jin Ae ahjumma brought them some food. Secretary Yang’s glad to see that everyone’s happy! Attorney Han has called Je Hoon at Hansong’s luxurious lounge, he doesn’t want him to involve secretary Yang, but Je Hoon points out the decision is up to her. Attorney Han thinks that Je Hoon’s wishes won’t turn to life. Secretary Yang thinks that secretary Min’s brother’s case will be accomplished. Secretary Min points out that it’s not only about her brother and secretary Yang thinks that she’s already won after uttering these words. Secretary Min points out that Secretary Yang is alone in her own case, unlike secretary Min who always had people by her side; it’s not too late. Secretary Lee enters the conversation and lets secretary Yang know that this may be her last chance to make things right, but there’s no guarantee her brother will be saved. Secretary Lee intends to set aside the past they shared and start anew. Secretary Yang tells her that she’ll take care of it leaving everyone wondering what could this mean.

bscap2716The three hyenas have gathered at president Song’s luxurious living room and Je Hoon’s there as well. President Song thinks that he’s inciting young kids, but Je Hoon tends to differ. Ji Young Ra points out that Hyeon Soo is not interested in such matters and Eom So Jeong agrees on Min Jae’s behalf. Both of them are staring at madame Choi as if In Sang had been a bad influence and that’s what they actually think! The number of the plaintiffs is quite interesting and Ji Young Ra and Eom So Jeong call right away their children but they don’t even have the time to discuss it even over the phone! Min Jae will be an intern at the new office and even though he doesn’t see a future in this he likes his working environment! Teacher Park wants him to talk to his mother so that he won’t have to answer to her raging phone calls, but Min Jae received a message from her letting him know that she arranged another internship for him!

bscap2717 bscap2719bscap2720 bscap2722

bscap2724Attorney Han’s at Hansong’s luxurious lounge and even though he puts his generous mask on in front of others, it doesn’t quite feel the same at this very moment. Yi Ji will be leaving to study abroad and she’s with Hyeon Soo waiting for Seo Bom and In Sang at the airport! In Sang wants to talk to Yi Ji and leaves Seo Bom with Hyeon Soo in their own moment of awkwardness! Madame Choi is neither negative nor positive with Yi Ji studying abroad, but attorney Han’s definitely negative even at this very moment. In Sang points out that the almighty household has nothing to do with their family, it’s not even their own, their grandmother bought it and brought it to Seoul, it’s not like their ancestors used to live in there! They are concerned about their family, they will be all alone in there surrounded by strangers, it’s not going to be awesome!

bscap2725 bscap2726bscap2727bscap2728bscap2729bscap2732bscap2731bscap2733bscap2735bscap2739bscap2737 bscap2738

bscap2740Hyeon Soo envies Seo Bom for looking good in any pair of shoes, then she hides them right away, but  she’s thankful towards her parents for her feet and she thinks that Hyeon Soo’s feet look good too! During awkward moments people talk about simply whatever! Seo Bom’s relieved to see her mother feeling better, as for Hyeon Soo, she doesn’t want to spent her entire life by her mother’s side and she wants to start dating someone! The moment for Yi Ji to leave has arrived and she hugs Seo Bom who eventually hugs Hyeon Soo as well, I love their quirky sense of slight friendship!

bscap2742 bscap2746bscap2743 bscap2745bscap2747bscap2748

bscap2750Secretary Lee keeps learning the art of babysitting and these three ahjummas are so awesome together! In Sang has returned back home and it’s time to eat and go back to his studying duties! Later on that night all the crazy ahjummas and ahjussis have gathered at the humble house and it’s a playful hell on earth! Am i asking too much by saying that I would like to be at the same table drinking and having fun with all of them?! In Sang and Seo Bom went pretty well at the mock exam and they have raised their scores even though they are far from perfect! Everyone’s drunken and crazy applauding the young couple while Hyeong Shik ahjussi considers teacher Park a god among mortals! What a great company all of them are! It’s time for In Sang and Seo Bom to express their love towards Jin Young and what a cute scene it is, full of affection and cheerful laughter!

And the winner is…

bscap2752Madame Choi needs to travel a bit and attorney Han wonders whether she’ll come back or not; maybe! Later on that night Attorney Han returned back to the almighty household with his new assistant and the new house personnel greets him! A new era of decay has began, attorney Han will remain in history as King Jeongho the Lonely!

bscap2767

Thoughts: How is it even possible to start writing down my thoughts if my thoughts are in a completely blissful yet downcast mess? Downcast because with every line i unfold the closer i get towards the unfaltering end, blissful because Heard It Through the Grapevine was rewarding from the very beginning to the very end. Saying goodbye to Heard It Through the Grapevine wasn’t easy and it was more overburdening than i could ever imagine. However, it felt like saying goodbye to a dear friend i saw again after a very long time and the moment to bid him/her farewell had arrived anew. But for some reason it left behind a silent promise as if we’ll meet again in the future. Of course, we all know that a Heard It Through the Grapevine sequel could never happen(?), but i wanted to share with you that vibe because it proved how heartfelt and pleasant at the same time this drama was, is and will be.

hittg3

Justice wasn’t served, but justice was served. Attorney Han was left unaffected by the law, but the punishment he received was far greater than any possible law civilized humans would ever compose and actually live up to its just expectations. It’s all about hubris and nemesis as they were presented in ancient tragedies, he who commits grave sins should always expect retribution and attorney Han committed major crimes throughout his life, one after the other, without showing any remorse. If i can recognize something towards attorney Han is the fact that he remained faithful to his utterly strict and deeply patriarchal, rationalistic and careerist, narrow-minded and obsolete beliefs up to the bitter end. According to attorney Han’s point of view he has everything, meaning wealth and power, but he had to lose something far greater at the cost of maintaining his social, influential and economical status.

hittg1

He has everything, but he has nothing. Hansong and its luxurious lounge and most and above all the almighty household don’t feel the same. They have lost the golden sparkle they possessed before his very eyes for all these years because they are lifeless buildings. No matter how much value they may possess they will never turn to life. Eventually, he chose a lifeless empire instead of the living, especially all those close to him regardless of their reasons. Steadily and one after the other everyone left him. Seo Bom and Jin Young were the fault line, In Sang was the earthquake and everyone followed, even madame Choi, his last vanguard and breakwater. Attorney Han exchanged his entire humane side for the utmost level of material world’s benefits and eventually got forced to embrace loneliness inside his own kingdom of obscurity in the shadow of reality. He maintained his utmost personal authority for the utmost price, he pleased his ego and bid farewell the human within.

hittg2

I kind of felt sorry for attorney Han in the end, but the amount of his indirect and direct wrongdoings can easily outweigh my slight sympathy for one’s solitude. He was the only one who paved his own path towards his own decomposition, step by step, episode by episode, decision by decision. A brave amount of sympathy went towards madame Choi whose gradual devastation during the last episodes was omnipresent, yet masterfully hidden, after all she was trained to do so. The art of wearing masks is an art indeed, but both of them ran out of stock at the very end of the drama, attorney Han by not finding pleasure anymore in his material world and madame Choi in not finding meaning anymore throughout the vast emptiness of the almighty household.

hittg

Under the worst case scenario the least she could do was to escape for the time being in order to find some peace of mind and work things out with herself. Throughout the last episodes she was in an ongoing internal conflict between the one she was supposed to be and herself. She wasn’t necessarily agreeing with attorney Han’s decisions yet she was actually pacing with his flow which was always the deciding factor to her emotional struggle. Being unable to put the blame on attorney Han solely was the only factor that was shifting the blame from attorney Han’s genes he inherited to In Sang to In Sang himself and then to Seo Bom, her family, teacher Park and pretty much everyone.

hittg4

Her indecisiveness was highly representative of her condition and the fact that she was actually missing the turbulent yet somehow spicy days when In Sang, Seo Bom and Jin Young were at the almighty household. Yi Ji studying abroad was the last echo of her wrong decisions and all the what-if factors that never blossomed. Trying to hide everything that was floating around as a rumor not only during the end of the episode but through the whole duration of the drama made her look laughable in a dramatic tone. She cried sincerely twice, the first time was when attorney Han set sail on adolescence’s love boat alongside Ji Young Ra and the second and bitterest one was at the very end of the drama when Seo Bom and In Sang had already unveiled their flow of thoughts.

hittg6

At the end of the day, everyone moved on. Secretary Lee and teacher Park left the almighty household in order to get married, live together and work under different circumstances. Secretary Lee intends to work as a babysitter and she will learn everything through Jin Ae ahjumma’s precious help and Jin Young’s baby power! Both of them learned a lot from Seo Bom and In Sang and the least teacher Park could do was to take both of them under his wings and help them find the pathway upon which they would like to walk upon, unconditionally. Attorney Yoo and Je Hoon forged their own humble law office where pretty much everyone could work, starting from teacher Park who eventually got followed by secretary Kim who managed to fight his inferiority syndrome. He might not had been the most clever person on earth and when he was conspiring he was always ending up being used, but he eventually made the decisions that would set him free of his own burden. He might not have gained secretary Min’s love, but he gained his freedom in various levels.

hittg8

The housemaid and butler Park resigned as well and they dream of introducing to the world their own restaurant. They won’t be alone, they will be living in the same building as In Sang and Seo Bom which is nearby to Seo Bom’s humble house, the place where miracles do happen! Secretary Min intends to leave Seoul behind and return back to her hometown, but she won’t be alone, Cheol Shik ahjussi will follow her to live with her happily ever after. The signs point towards the direction that justice will be served concerning Cheol Shik ahjussi and secretary Min’s brother.

hittg10

Yi Ji will study abroad in order to purchase her own dreams and be far away from the lonely kingdom of ice, whereas Min Jae started his own uncertain retaliation while Hyeon Soo’s willing to move on without living in her mother’s shadow, dating feels essential by now! Noo Ri and Je Hoon’s relationship isn’t stable, but they went through many turbulent times solely and as a couple and managed to emerge victorious throughout the various obstacles that appeared their way. I am pretty certain Je Hoon’s free spirit and Noo Ri’s wannabe-classy thirst will collide right in the middle and this conflict of personalities will forge their own yin-yang of love. President Song will keep preserving his luxurious living room as a martyr of love and gossip maestro while Ji Young Ra will be at ease without madame Choi’s presence and Eom So Jeong will pace with their flow.

hittg11

Secretary Yang found herself in the most difficult situation, she thought she would emerge victorious, but in the end she turned into a disposable marionette in the hands of the masterful puppeteer. Her commitment and wrongdoings came back to haunt her with her brother becoming the scapegoat of her slush funds. However, she wasn’t let all alone, she was embraced anew by everyone in an attempt to offer her a last chance to welcome the human within back to the surface, but she was too broken to pace with the flow. Judging from the peripheral signs she’s willing to fight back on her own regardless of the outcome. It’s the least she could do for herself, her brother and the people she betrayed.

hittg9

Jin Young will be raised like a prince in a world filled with love amongst many caring people as the humble house’s company grows with more pounding hearts! All of them are a great company and In Sang and Seo Bom made it happen by gradually bringing them all together. Seo Bom and In Sang walked a long and turbulent road, but love always preserved among hardships, obstacles and seemingly insuperable waves. They were always shining together through presence and absence and their intense quarrel at the final episode was fueled by their mutual caring. In times like these desperation isn’t a friendly adviser and both of them fell inside each other’s loving web and got stuck there for a while, but eventually they found their own path because they were not alone and each other’s shadow wasn’t strong enough to overshadow their feelings and who they really are.

hittg12

In Sang and Seo Bom’s last sincere confession towards madame Choi and attorney Han was their last attempt to let them know of their decisions in order to find out their reactions. Madame Choi broke apart, attorney Han broke the almighty household. After the Ji Young Ra incident this was the second meaningful hug from In Sang towards his mother and it was once again with love and understanding. Giving her the opportunity to see them anytime she wants to, even though she seemingly objected their heartfelt offering, will eventually lead her to them in order to find out for herself the art of loving and being loved back, unconditionally yet mutually.

hittg13

In Sang and Seo Bom are emotional terrorists with their only explosives being their love for each other and their common dreams for a better world. The ominous past is left behind and the future lies ahead of them with open arms and at the center of their universe always lies Jin Young. I am going to severely miss Heard It Through the Grapevine and i will always remember Lee Joon and Go Ah Sung’s heartwarming chemistry and multifaceted emotionally charged interactions. In the end, i can’t really say this drama had secondary figures, Heard It Through the Grapevine was a family of personalities getting to shine whenever the occasion was asking for it and we got to see through everyone’s psyche and nature as episodes were passing by.

hittg7

The ending was rewarding and i am glad it didn’t serve us for free all of the answers, most of the questions were answered, but some pathways were left pointing towards a direction we can only imagine what could happen. Getting to hear everything through the grapevine the puzzle got complete and we managed to see the light of truth at the end of the tunnel. It’s one of these occasions when both the journey and the destination fulfilled one another through the prism of completion, making Heard It Through the Grapevine a one of a kind drama for those willing to see beyond the amorphous maze of generic drama entertainment. Why does a special episode feel essential by now? SBS? Production team? Director? Writer? Naval commander Yi Sun Shin? Anyone? Please, make it happen! One way or another, here comes a limitless ‘thank you’ to the whole team below, you have my everlasting love!

ONLY LOVE

        The future seems empty, but my heart is happy. It is the rare drama that leaves me that way. So. I’m happy. Because increasingly Kdrama is providing us with more and more dramas like this. I have survived leaving Glorious Day, Misaeng, and now HITTGV this past year.

        Are you going to watch Mask? LOADS of fun! Gorgeous visually. Eccentric, bizarre, twisted, and treading that fine line in a wonderful balance of OTT without slipping off into makjang farce. Seriously, Yeon Jeong-Hun is going to kill someone one day with those eyes of his. And he’s’ not EVEN wearing eye liner! Every time he looks into the screen there must be at least a dozen people dying of heart attacks. Luckily for me, my family has very strong hearts…I’m surviving the chest pains just fine! 😉

          “The future seems empty, but my heart is happy.” now there was so much truth in that line succeeding HITTG’s ending! The distinctive quality of specific dramas truly shines from time to time lately!
          Haven’t considered watching Mask yet because exams are approaching, but i started My Love Eun Dong for all the painful drama reasons in the world, i wanted to start something with welcome amounts of pain and feels and i think my radar was proven correct, at least in the first two eps 😀 But i like your Mask presentation, and i will take into consideration in the beginning of July when the exams will be over, hopefully forever! “Luckily for me, my family has very strong hearts…I’m surviving the chest pains just fine! ” dramaland’s problems and how genes help you cope with them XD

    Thank you a wonderful Recap and Review. You’ve said it all so well and in so many different ways. Most of all I am grateful that you remind us that InSang has hugged his mother warmly twice in this drama, warmly supporting her during her most painful times with positive words of comfort and encouragement while holding her tightly in his loving
    embrace. He told her to come visit him! Seo Bom strongly reinforced the invitation “Come when you are ready, You are always welcome.” I believe Yeon Hee certainly will be involved with this little family,because she loves her son and Jin Young, most of all!
    The quotations were totally right on target, too. Enjoyed your articles very much!

    • June 6, 2015 at 3:24 pm — Reply

      A handful of thanks comes your way and you’re very welcome!! Your words are deeply appreciated! In Sang was there for madame Choi in her darkest hours and his embrace proved it, what probably hurt her the most was her inability to truly appreciate the vibes of such reactions on In Sang’s behalf, hopefully enough in the future and with Seo Bom, Jin Young and In Sang’s sincere help she will revisit the past and find out things she would never have imagined they existed in this world!

    Sort of off topic, but not really, do you know that name of the songs and the musicians who performed them that were used in this Drama? I’d really like to have some of them. (I loved the music more on this show than any one I’ve ever watched before.) I hear some of the songs (the opening one, usually) on K-Variety shows, but I have searched on line and I can’t find out names or groups. Thanks.

      Ah, had found the song that was playing throughout the drama, but i don’t recall its title or the artist at this moment :/ Once i find it again i will definitely let you know! It’s one of these rare occasions when just 1 song and 2-3 mini instrumental pieces served their purpose more than well compared to other dramas with full OST!

    Thanks for your great recaps. The ending was really good and satisfying. It’s great to know that our fave characters get to live a happy life working together with one goal and helping and supporting each other.
    Teacher Park and Secretary Lee became second parents to In Sang and Seo Bom just like the housekeeper and butler couple, I wasn’t expecting that at all and it’s a happy surprise. All three couples living in the same building happily just warmed my heart. In Sang might have severed his ties from his cold, manipulative and calculating parents but he gained three sets of warm, supportive and kind parents, not a bad bargain I think.
    I like almost everything about the ending and the conclusion of the drama except for secretary Lee. I think she’s a good and efficient secretary and organizer. It’s a bit jarring to see her in comfortable clothes and learning how to babysit when she’s not really interested in having kids of her own nor does she have any kind of knowledge on how to take care of kids. I felt like all characters in the end stayed true to their characters except her.
    Finishing a drama with a friend (online friend and that’s you), who enjoys it as much as I do is really great. You made the experience more memorable and I thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us.

      You’re very welcome and i am deeply thankful for your thoughts and words!
      It was great leaving this drama behind while knowing that Seo Bom and In Sang have so many caring and wonderful figures around them! All 3 couples living in the same building and always being able to appear at Seo Bom’s parents’ house for celebratory moments was more than relieving!
      I think secretary Lee wanted to leave behind her secretary tasks even though she was organizing everything quite well. Maybe she wanted a new beginning, just like teacher Park ending profitable tutoring and just keeping it up unconditionally to only help In Sang and Seo Bom. But i do get your point, she did a 180 degree turn XD
      Finishing this drama with all of you beautiful people made the journey way more enjoyable and heartfelt! You are very welcome and i am very thankful once again!!! 🙂 Let’s keep hoping for a special episode! 😀

    To me, the show didn’t truly end until I read your review of ep 30. Thank you so much for the extra days you added onto the show. Thanks so much for your recaps and insights. I so regret not having found your site sooner. I think I’m going to have to go back to the beginning to read your reviews to all of the previous episodes. As much as I’d refresh to see if Viki had the raw show up and then to see if Dramafever had the subbed show up is how much I’d do here to see if you had the new review up yet. You truly added another Elena to watching and enjoying this show. Thank you so very much!!!

    Now, if only I could find In Sang’s jacket! I’m not even sure now if it’s a jacket or s shirt. Either way, not being able to find it with so much information about it is ridiculous. Thank you for all of the help you gave me. Even though I still couldn’t find it, I still appreciate all the trouble you went through to get me so much information about it.

      Used to be 32 yup. I don’t know the actual reason, but the drama that will succeed HITTG had its airing week changed and that probably caused the ep reduction. Now with all the episodes at your feet you have all the time to marathon it or watch it in a relaxed tone 😀

    Thank you for your recaps. They completed this wonderful show, the best of 2015 so far.
    No surprise as it’s coming from the makers of Secret Love Affair, my ultimate favorite show ever. That’s why Secretary Yang reminded me of Oh Hye Won btw. She was just as cunning and clever als OHW, but didn’t get to experience her cathartic love story. 😉

    To find thoughtful and good recaps for a quality show like HITTG is very satisfying. Thanks again for your hard work appreciated by many. <3

    • June 9, 2015 at 6:16 pm — Reply

      You’re very welcome for your words, they are very much appreciated!! Heard It Through the Grapevine was a one of a kind drama for sure!
      Haven’t completed Secret Love Affair yet, i am midway through, BUT its halfway course was enough to point towards the HITTG direction alongside the fact that i wanted to see how Lee Joon would perform his In Sang role. Soon enough i plan to resume my SLA course and see it to the very end! I am sure it won’t disappoint me at all, especially when i had already loved its first half from cinematography to the plot and eventually the characters in the way they progress. One thing i appreciate about this writer-director duo is their presentation on different classes, when someone is poor he/she is poor, it’s something one can easily find in Japanese dramas and it lacks in presentation in many Korean dramas, but the SLA/HITTG duo definitely know how to depict this presentation.
      Once again, thanks a whole lot! 🙂 <3

          • July 18, 2015 at 10:45 am

            SO… on with my comment. I want to hug “HITTG” so much. Like, it it could be a teddy bear, I would squeeze it like crazy.

            Your analysis was so detailed and spot-on (imho). I must say, and it’s probably because I didn’t care enough, but all the shenanigans with the lawsuit, the slush funds were confusing to me. I understood enough to figure out that the main problem was that it could potentially send some people to jail and Han Seong would go bankrupt.

            What I really loved about the drama is how no matter how dark it was, it always gave us a bit of hope. The characters development was AWESOME. They felt so human. Everybody is just trying to survive with the weapons they have. And you realize in the end that it’s just so much easier when you treat people with respect, sincerity and you don’t try to take advantage of them. Everybody just helps out everybody and everybody is happy together. What is money and all calculations and the feeling that you control/manipulate to get your way? You just end up alone with no one to count on like Han Jung Oh the great refuses to understand. I like we didn’t get to see Secretary Yang’s decision. Will she give up on Han Song she dedicated her life to, regardless of the illegal stuff she had to do? Or will she start a new chapter of her life with the rest of the employees and find happiness? Because that’s always the question in the end. What is the point of anything we do? If it’s to be happy, how much are we willing to give up on virtue to get this happiness? Can you really be happy when it’s not acquired in a genuine way? And so when you took the “wrong path”, can you get a second chance to turn your life around? I liked how Noori was still teased about how she didn’t let go of her ambition, but in the meantime, she’s still with Je Hoon (which is bisexual, I decided) as she’s fully aware that he will never be a rich lawyer b/c he wants to live by his principles.

            In the end, it’s all about how each person is connected to others. Like the 5 main relationships by Confucius that establish a hierarchy between humans, it doesn’t mean there’s no respect or no love between the people involved. You cannot live alone. You need people to count on starting with your family, then people you can choose to be as your family. * one tear of joy *

    And the acting was so superb.it make me want to cry. And also i had never seen so many scary smiles.Secretary Yang remonded me of the cat in Alice in Wonderland.

    • July 26, 2015 at 9:06 pm — Reply

      The acting was definitely superb, everyone was so spot on! Hahaha, i have to agree on Sec Yang reminding the cat in AiW! And attorney Han’s smiles were powerful too, if one can compare them to smiles and not a careerist’s wealth&power anti-bliss! XD

      HITTG was definitely hug-able and squeeze-able and this just proves how much you loved this drama! I am sorry sunny lady, i would had commented earlier but the sudden turn of events deleted my brain for a while and had a flashback today!

      The lawsuit thingies, slush funds, etc were definitely confusing, sometimes the subs weren’t helpful and were making the whole process more difficult for the mind to conceive. Has to spend some extra time on that specific factor and there was 1 episode which i watched exhausted and i didn’t understand a thing, i felt baboya, so i had to rewatch and pay extra attention! XD

      Yup, there was always a sense of hope lurking on the horizon, whether it was the chemical warfare baby, In Sang’s sister, In Sang’s attitude, Seo Bom’s strength, her mother’s approach, the house personnel’s gradual progress, etc. It was never overly dark and when it was heading towards that direction it was becoming comical to outweigh the burden. Definitely agree with the human side of the characters, even the extraterrestrial ones like madame Choi and attorney Han had their slight humane moments, even though they were denying them eventually or where trying not to see them. Their most humane moment was Jin Young!

      “It’s just so much easier when you treat people with respect, sincerity and you don’t try to take advantage of them.” I SO agree sunny lady of the sunny town with the sunny point of view! I wanted to be a part of the ending episode gatherings and drink with all of them 😀 I think i liked attorney Han’s solitude more than him ending up in jail, it was the most humane punishment he could receive and it was nothing else than the outcome of his own choices. Thanks to your comment you reminded that i wanted to write a review about the drama and express a certain point of view i kept in the shadows because it would take me lots of time if i had to place in a recap. I liked that we didn’t get to see Sec Yang’s decision as well, but she gave me the impression as if she would fight back on her own because it was herself who prevented her from listening to other’s voices. ” If it’s to be happy, how much are we willing to give up on virtue to get this happiness? And so when you took the “wrong path”, can you get a second chance to turn your life around?” So spot on for one more time!
      Hahahahaha, i haven’t made up my mind yet on Je Hoon’s orientation XD Yup, Noo Ri neither gave up her ambition nor ended up being with the hippy lawyer 😀

      “In the end, it’s all about how each person is connected to others. Like the 5 main relationships by Confucius that establish a hierarchy between humans, it doesn’t mean there’s no respect or no love between the people involved. You cannot live alone.
