  • I guess Sun didn't tell Jin "The Whole Truth" last season.

  • English translation of Korean continues to frustrate. In one scene, the subtitles have Jin saying "Is Sayid your husband?" when what he really said was, "Did Sayid get you pregnant?" Considering the questions posed by the flashback, that's a significant difference.

  • Sun was calling Jin "Jin-Soo-she" which was oddly formal, considering she was calling him "yabo" last season. I noticed he called her "tanshin," "chagki-ya" and, at the end, "yabo."

  • The end, with Jack and Benry. OMG I never get tired of seeing that. And really, a nice way to remind us that, even though the 3rd season is just starting, it's really only November 29, 2004 to the Losties. And, looking back, the things Benry tells Jack have happened since the plane crashed on Sept. 22 do sound a little far-fetched.

    "If you wanted me to believe you, you really should have picked someone else." Hee!

I do love the Korean flashback eps so...

Last night when they showed the Sox, I said to my husband "Coco is in heaven right now - between this and all of the Jin action..." So I was so laughing and thinking of you.

And with the translation - yes, that's a big difference. Especially considering this is a 'miracle' baby.

This episode was written with you in mind, that's for sure!

What does 'yabo' mean? Is that a term of endearment??

Yabo is what married people say to each other. It's only used after they're married. It's hard to explain...
Chagki means "sweetie" kindof, and Tanshin is "darling" or "dear."

No, that makes sense. Wasn't he yelling 'yabo' when they were in the water at the end?

I can't remember but do we know why they were going to LA? I'm getting all my storylines confused. =)

To move to America and free themselves from Daddy Paik, I think.

Yes, they both were calling "yabo" in the water.

Wow, thanks for the Korean translations...that *does* make a huge difference. It changes the flavor of the scene from being about "whose influence do you accept and whose interests do you advance?"


I read in one of the pre-season warm-up interviews that the mystery of who fathered Sun's baby is one they're going to save for resolution until the penultimate episode.

And just what kind of little behavioral experiment are they conducting with Sawyer and Kate anyway?

thanks for the korea info! I loved the TV scene and definately thought of you. overall, though, the fact that the storylines are in so many different places is annoying. and jack bugs the crap out of me.

My whole thing is, I started watching the show for the Korean story line. And while the rest of it is interesting, I don't care about it much, except how it relates to the story of Jin and Sun.

So to me, Kate = Sun's friend. Sawyer = the guy on the raft with Jin. Etc.
