With Green Mother’s Club coming to a close, we can’t help but reflect on how this programme was a true drama that, however, suffered from an excruciatingly slow pacing. In Korean dramas, there is almost never just one plot. Everybody’s actions are always accompanied by subplots, covert relationships, unrevealed histories, and numerous motives. We don’t mind, though, because it is precisely the skillful handling of these difficulties that has given Korean dramas the current level of appeal. A K-drama today is much more than just a Korean-language television programme. To qualify as such, it must check off these requirements. Unfortunately, because of how strictly these requirements must be followed, Green Mother’s Club fails to capture the underlying pleasure of the genre. Even though the last two episodes contained very little overall content, they nevertheless managed to make the conclusion seem hurried and forcedly integrated into the overall plot. Through comprehending the behaviours of our protagonists, let’s discover how they accomplish this.
Why Does Eun Pyo Help Jun Hi?
We were tearing out our hair in frustration throughout this section of episode 15. It is one thing to support friends, but it is quite another to break the law on their behalf. In the previous two episodes, Jun Hi seemed to have cleared things up with the other characters. She confides in Eun Pyo about her marital issues and her issues with her mother-in-law, who never quite understood where Jun Hi came from. She also expresses her regret to Young Ju and informs her that she put too much pressure on Yu Bin, which led to the events between them. She is pardoned by Young Ju, and the two of them have a soju.
She is in trouble, though, since the police have decided to detain her, and Eun Pyo learns about this through her husband. Throwing caution to the wind, she warns Jun Hi about this. Eun Pyo advises Jun Hi to give herself in, but Jun Hi chooses to pack up and head to Canada. But she wants to act morally. She intends to deliver her children to Canada before flying back to Korea to shield them from the events there. After Man Su declines, she asks Eun Pyo for assistance, and Eun Pyo agrees. Jae Ung, who has been listening to everything, is furious with his wife for supporting a criminal. Even though Eun Pyo makes it known that her allegiances are with her friend, he manages to catch them just as they are about to leave. Just seeing this was aggravating. Why did it matter? Was there really nothing else Jun Hi could have done to keep her kids out of this without endangering her own case and involving Eun Pyo? The problem with overdramatizing is that the simplest answers are often overlooked in favour of showy antics that don’t even amuse.
But what happens after her arrest is very straightforward. She informs the authorities that Louis has to be questioned since on the day of Jin Ha’s death, he was acting extremely suspiciously. And that her spouse, not her, was to blame for the initial drug mix-up.
Who Is Rhea Bennett? Who Killed Jin Ha?
One of the craziest things to ever happen in the K-drama world was Rhea Bennett’s presence on Green Mother’s Club. And things only become worse when Eun Pyo discovers Louis and Rhea were adopted siblings. To give his side of the story, Louis meets with Eun Pyo. He tells her that he is in love with Rhea and that he married Jin Ha because she resembles her. Throughout these years, he tried to transform her into Rhea, but it was simply impossible. That’s when he made the decision to separate from her and begin a new life with Rhea.
We lack the vocabulary to adequately express how disgusting we find this. Marrying a woman solely because she resembles your adoptive stepsister and spending your entire life with her only to want to end it because she is not what you expected of her is an other level of stupidity and insanity. Our only explanation is that the Green Mother’s Club writers were at a loss for subplots and were forced to invent this absurdity. There isn’t any other defence. Eun Pyo visits Jun Hi in response to Louis’ allegations to learn what transpired the night of Jin Ha’s death. She is informed by Jun Hi that the last time she saw her, Jin Ha was angry and crying because Eun Pyo’s mother did not recognise her.
Louis reveals to Eun Pyo the truth of the evening when he admits that Jin Ha had seen Rhea’s messages on his laptop about wanting to leave her and that she had been waiting to leap from the window sill when she discovered them. She was falling to her death, and Louis had tried to grip her hand and stop her, but he was powerless to do so. In the end, Jin Ha committed suicide. In order to shield Henry from the nightmare that the entire event was, he has made the decision to give himself in. As we saw this plot develop, the first thing that sprang to our minds was, “What a disaster!” What was the point of anything, really? Did Jin Ha not realise that her stepsister Louis looked just like her during their years of marriage? Did she actually not ask about it? The most crucial query is, “What is wrong with Louis?” He could have prevented the entire performance if he had made just one wise choice. Fortunately, he did better than the other characters.
What Happens To Jae Ung And Eun Pyo?
There are so many unanswered questions regarding this couple. Where did they begin? Did Eun Pyo marry him as a result of her inability to move past Louis? Even so, does she adore him? What kind of connection do they currently have? We clearly noticed that by supporting Jun Hi, she puts her husband’s promotion at jeopardy. Despite the fact that the family is happy at the end of Green Mother’s Club, we can’t help but feel that the authors should have cut out at least one of the numerous superfluous narrative lines and focused more on the story of these two individuals. They seriously missed the mark with this. What was Jae Ung, besides the calm spouse of Eun Pyo, doing when he was looking into the slaying? What in him convinced a complicated lady like Eun Pyo to choose to marry him? He appeared like the right person for her, but why? We never once got the impression that she was in love with him while watching the show. She appears to be unhappy with her situation, but she clearly respects and admires him. But does love exist? We wished that the show had spent more time responding to that. Although they make a great family, it would have been fantastic to see them also create a great couple. Fortunately, the plot for the second pair is considerably more compelling.
Do Young Ju And Man Su Reconcile?
About the ex-relationship between her husband and Jun Hi, Young Ju had long harboured insecurities. Not to mention the fact that she had consistently felt beneath Jun Hi at every turn of the performance. She could understand why her husband was upset at Jun Hi and going to such pains to shield her. It implied to her that he still harboured feelings for her. Not to mention the fact that he had withheld from Young Ju his connection with Ju Seok and the drugs, which only led to more misunderstandings. But, Young Ju chooses to ignore this and approaches Man Su, asking him to swear to her that he will never again get involved with them. After Jun Hi’s imprisonment, however, Young Ju can’t help but feel that Man Su sought to assist her while betraying his pledge to his wife. He is asked to leave the house by her. Man Su does this and immediately confronts Ju Seok, teaching him a lesson about how his wife has gone through hell and back numerous times in order to save their marriage. He owes it to her to be honest in his testimony.
After this argument, he returns home and tells his wife that his family is the only thing in the world that matters to him, thereby mending his relationship. One of the show’s more endearing storylines was this one. It is nice to see a straightforward family entangled in a web woven by those with hidden agendas but finally returning out of love for one another. We sincerely rejoice for these people. But going back to Eun Pyo, she really doesn’t give us a chance to be intensely frustrated.
Green Mother s Club Ending Explained- Does Jun Hi Get Released From Jail?
She does, indeed. She receives a lighter sentence once her husband, Ju Seok, does the right thing and admits to his part in the scandal as a whole. A literal depiction of Jae Ung and Eun Pyo enjoying how well their son is getting along with the other students at his school occurs at the end of the programme, and Eun Pyo then goes to pick up Jun Hi after she has been freed from jail. Although it is rather funny when Eun Pyo claims that Jun Hi is the reason she is so settled in the neighbourhood, considering what the latter put her through for more than half the season, their friendship is still solid and they certainly have each other’s backs.
Now that she has assisted a new neighbour in settling in with her child, Eun Pyo has established herself as a cornerstone of the community. After all the drama, the other characters are either doing their time in prison or are at last content with their families. This was unquestionably a too-happy finale for the events depicted in the episode, with the threads neatly sewn together in a manner that is rather off-putting. Reiterating what we’ve already said, Green Mother’s Club was a mash-up of practically every K-drama stereotype wrapped in a flimsy tiger mom plot. Furthermore, it served little purpose to call it the Green Mother’s Club when we seldom ever saw the club or what it really stood for in the first place.
Final Thoughts: Why Did The Show Not Work?
We aren’t even certain that the core premise has that much potential after 8 weeks of the show. We’re talking about a group of moms who are committed to micromanaging every aspect of their kids’ upbringing, with a murder mystery tossed in for good measure. Because it is a real issue in today’s culture, the programme would have had far more of an impact if they had simply adhered to the Tiger Mom plot arc. Without introducing criminal objectives into the story, the motives behind parents putting such pressure on their kids needed to be examined in all of their multifaceted selfishness. And perhaps 16 episodes weren’t necessary. With only 8–10 episodes, it might have been much sharper and more engaging, and that specific execution undoubtedly would have made it a far bigger hit than what it has thus far managed to achieve.
This drama is currently incredibly forgettable and not really worth anyone’s attention. It doesn’t give anything new, the characters are unlikable, and there are some scenes, like the Louis-Rhea narrative, that are so embarrassing that they might ruin K-drama as a whole. We would conclude by suggesting that Green Mother’s Club is better the less people who see it. Because K-drama fans should receive better.
