Secret Garden E5: Live “Transcap”


There aren’t that many instances where I am immediately drawn to a show. Very rarely do I feel the pull right from the start. The last time that happened was Coffee Prince and that was years ago. Then Secret Garden came into my life. It was as if someone had asked me, what would it take for you to fall in love with this show instantly? Somehow they knew every angle, meaningful dialogue, and intimation where I would have to agree that this show embodied the answers I never gave, but always felt in my heart.
If you don’t believe me, just look at how it starts. The most breathtaking opening scene in Kdrama history with the sprawling estate is a cinematographic wonder. Then to really sweeten the deal they threw in the pond that bears a striking resemblance to the one from Darcy’s backyard in Pride and Prejudice. To top it all off, they show us a home so beautiful that I inhaled and forgot to exhale for like a few minutes so I wouldn’t miss a single second of the camera panning over the interior. That mansion makes the house from Brilliant Legacy, Cinderella’s Sister, and Bad Guy look like a four car garage. This drama is special and they wanted us to know it from the onset and they convinced me even before Hyun Bin’s character uttered his first lines.
I love his imaginary conversations. It is too bad that it only lasted for the duration of the second episode only. It was like watching his inner most thoughts come to life so we can go through it with him. Watching him walk along his estate wondering aloud why he keeps thinking about her and then picturing her in all his ideal representations was so adorable.
Joo Won has a way of speaking that just gets to you. The sarcasm is hilarious, the sincerity makes you weak in the knees, the innocence tugs at your heart, and his pure honesty astounds you. Even his bluntness is pardonable because you know it comes from love deep down inside. This character is capable of loving in the best way possible – everlasting.
—————————————————————————————-
I wrote that a while back, but this will be the last time I get to use it since the serious episodes are going to be a thing of the past for a while I bet. I wanted to cling to my image of a dignified Binnie/Joo won for a bit longer…
—————————————————————————————-
I seriously want to rename my all my recaps “transcaps” or “transcriptions”
—————————————————————————————-

All that tension in E3 and E4 are going to be released in this episode and the next.

It is D – day people…the swap…the slap…the hi-jinks… the kiss….brace yourself for this bumpy ride!

————–

banhmat-by that last statement, JW is basically telling her he cant give up everything he has (wealth, status,etc.) for one girl cuz he has too much to lose. he is not willing to give it all up for one girl, but oska is.  oska points that out to JW while they are preparing for the race.

did I say how much I love the spazzing last night – it kept me motivated to do as much as I could in one sitting

sometimes I think the writer for this drama may be the best one ever, but then there are times when she phrases something so impossible to translate I wonder if she might be out to get me – like she doesnt want anyone else to get how good her lines are so she makes it as tricky as possible – it’s like one wrong word and the whole sentence is thrown off kilter- working under that kind of pressure is hard. but then, once i get it, i forgive her and thank her again for doing such a great job with the dialogue. it’s like i have my own love/hate relationship with these lines.

I already know what scene will give me problems – that yoonhee’s mom from SKKS scandal scene – how did she know all that about R’s dad? ?? I thought she was R’s mom too but she served JW the chicken first and not R and she did say to R that she was glad to see her but her actions don’t seem like a mother except for that scene when the woman looked right at R and said that the alcohol was “medicinal alcohol – to save our daughter”. thanks shirley (love that you are here-missed you since SKKS) – you have me convinced – that woman must be R’s mom cuz her mom did ask JW about his health and that’s what moms do to check out future son in laws but I gotta say, not seeing your daughter all these years and then making your daughter swap souls with a guy just seems like odd behavior for an estranged mom – what did R do to deserve that? wait so now you guys think her dad is in her mom’s -err- this woman’s body?  my head hurts now – I am going to go back to translating cute scenes …

wait I think the woman is her dad – the way she spoke – the way she stood and her mannerisms were all male – and that way she would know about R’s dad’s drinking habits- yup that woman was R’s dad for sure

all i can say is, i dont care who swaps what – body – soul – whatever swap all you want but everyone better go back to where they belong when the drama ends and everyone better be alive and there better not be any cheezy butterflies flying around them as they float off into the sunset or to the moon or anything remotely like that or I swear I will never recap another drama ever again 🙂

—————————————————————–

Secret Garden’s live transcription will begin at 10KST
———-

This is where E4 left off where JW is sitting there and Oska and R come up:
JW: You’re ten mins late
Oska: what is this? why are you there?
JW: (Don’t you think) I have to grasp a debtor’s[*] route at least.
(staring intently at R)  I’ve see her a lot somewhere (meaning she looks familiar)
Oska: I invited her – R is my guest today
(R has been staring right at JW the whole entire time with a peeved look on her face)
JW: But hyung (brother) your guest can’t stop staring at me
Oska: I don’t think it’s cuz she cant stop staring – it looks more like she is glaring
JW: That’s what I mean- I said she was prettier when she was angry
R to JW: Jerk
JW (smiling with satisfaction): I was right – she is the woman I know
R to oska: let’s sit over here (away from JW)
Oska: what is this mood – asking cuz I am curious but what is the relationship between you two?
JW: there are approximately 230 countries in the world and i can speak five languages. despite this, there is no word that can define what the relationship is between us.
R to JW: saying ridiculous things
(to oska in a sweet tone) – what is good here?
manager: I’m sorry but all the tables have been reserved
R: oh it has
oska: by any chance – is the jerk who made all those reservations (oska uses his head to motion towards JW) and the manager says it was
JW: did you forget? when you make reservations at a restaurant, I’m the one who buys it
———-
R and oska flirting scene
all three are sitting together eating
JW to oska:
*”does the jejudo bean rice suit your palate?”
hyung (brother) I guess you look better when you’re locked in some place.
(meaning: you do like to make the trouble)
(oska lunges at JW and JW smirks)
oska to JW:You think so too?. My beauty(popularity) doesn’t really choose when and where.
Oska to R:He is always like this. let’s leave him out and make a toast
R: love to
oska (holding up his wine glass): cheers for the blue night in Jeju-do that will spread soon in front of us, and for your eyes that is darker(more black) and more beautiful than the night.”
R:the reason my eyes are beautiful isn’t it because a star came down temporarily and is sitting in front of my eyes?
JW chokes on his wine (and I gag a little)
Oska: I’ve been caught -if it’s too bright – tell me – I will sit with my back to you
R: no – I rather go blind.
JW drops his utensil
R replies in a flirty tone to oska: to be honest, I’ve been your fan for 3 yrs. may I call you “oppa”?
Oska says “of course” and JW repeats “oppa” ? like he can’t believe what he is hearing
oska says to her “our Ra Im doesnt know this but oppa is an easy man”and R says” I’m not a woman without flaws either”
JW aghast says”she’s (gone)crazy-crazy”
Oska shushes everyone so they can hear TS sing
*referring to the incident last night. bean rice is a token of jail in korean.
“eat bean rice” =go to jail
*thanks white fox for all your help
———-

TS sings the main theme song to this drama – oska makes everyone stop talking to listen and JW stares at R the whole time
flashes back to that night when he was mean to her about her purse -omg he was there!!!!! he saw her cover up the safety pins with her bandanna -remember when she sat outside under the street light and tied up the pins so it wouldnt show – he watched her do that from a distance -awwww
then another scene where he went into the pond to get bike keys and he found it
then it shows how he went back to the store and bought all the clothes he threw on the ground and asked the saleclerks to “wrap them up”

then we see R receive JW’s text to meet. she starts trying on outfits
before she went to meet JW that night – she did try to look good for him!!
she even put that bandanna on cuz her roommate had said men like it when women cover up some skin
omg these scenes are so sweet!!!
————————–

Oska asks TS if TS was the one who called the police and TS says that if he hadnt oska would have been beaten to death
TS: at those times, that’s why you pay tax to get help from the police
oska: tax? I pay more tax
Oska yells at TS for interfering and making it a bigger deal and how it could have been on the internet
TS accuses oska of being rich and living comfortably
oska: it is comfortable but you made that uncomfortable
TS: is that why you did it? reserve all the tables and just sit there the three of you
TS gets upset about how they ruined his performance since not that many people got to see it and asks oska if he has the right to help some up and comer singer
how could a hallyu star ruin someone else’s set like that and claim that he wants to help a young singer
oska grabs him and says :let me talk too- are you the only one with a mouth?
oska defends himself and says he didnt reserve the tables and that he oska knows TS is better than him
oska is holding TS’s wrist so TS says : while I am saying it nicely – let go
oska says: then saying something bad
TS: for the first time – for the sake of a hallyu star -i’m going to say this
I like guys
oska: what?
TS: i’m gay
oska : huh? is that how you want me to get lost? is that method/way a trend these days?
(getting flustered) isnt that just personal taste – what’s wrong with that?
TS leans in close to oska and oska pulls way back
TS: do you think of it that way?
oska : I’ll rethink it
Ts walks off calling oska a coward I think
——————-
JW teases R
JW: what?  (using a girly voice ):”I rather go blind” “can I call you oppa?”
R: when did I say that in a nasal way?
JW: you’re always shooting fierce glares my way? why do you turn into a 17 yr old innocent girl in front of Chae woo hyung?
R: because oppa makes me feel like an innocent girl- unlike someone who makes me feel like a charity case and neighbor
JW: that oppa has girls like you on an international scale
R: the important thing is that our oppa is front of me right now
JW: i’m going crazy. dont you read the papers? your “our oppa” is a total playboy
just the women i helped  him out with (take care of /manage) …
R: then “take care” of that woman – since a while ago she has been staring at you.
JW looks over and sees seul
—————-
seul: I was right.
Seul comes over to where JW and R are sitting. Seul makes some remark about how she was thinking of JW while she was at the beach and how it was like serendipity (I think) that they meet up like this
JW: what brings you here? – all the way to jejudo
Seul : for work, we were hunting (pretty sure it was for location shoots)
if we knew that we were fated to meet like this, we didnt have to have such an inflexible start
which makes R smirk and JW makes another snarky comment about how it didn’t need to start at all
JW: your friends are waiting
seul: they are much younger juniors than me (she means he complimented her by saying she has such young friends) she tells them to go ahead of her
seul looks at R and says he has someone with him
JW replies: In all my life, she’s a woman who is the most difficult to have a meal with
seul to R: pardon me (for asking) but whose daughter are you? (as in whose wealthy household is R from)
JW: if you know you’re sorry, how about just leaving now?
(looking at R while saying it to seul) since she is a hot-tempered woman, I’m nervous she might run off  – I’m telling you twice now
Seul tells JW “let’s meet (unexpectedly/suddenly) like this again”
Seul says to R that it was nice to meet her and after seul leaves, R suddenly recognizes who seul is and chases after her which makes JW yell out “what’s wrong? where are you going?” and JW goes after R
*not sure if i got that right
———————————

R catches up to Seul and asks
R: hey- you know me right?
Seul: of course I know you- I just met you
R: not that – you know me
Seul: you know me?
R: you know and you’re doing this-you really dont remember?
Seul: I said I didnt- who are you?
R: if you say “who are you?” then you’re dumb as a rock
I even found your friend’s bag and returned it
seul: bag? (and remembers)
R: that’s right- it’s me
(r says the same line seul gave JW about meeting unexpectedly)
(JW watches all this from a short distance and seul is still in pretend mode)
Seul smiling fakely: I think you have the wrong person
R: no i don’t
Seul: I’m telling you -you have the wrong person
R: then why is your voice getting louder(shaking)?
Seul : look here
R: this is (lying) till the end
until you say ”apologizing was easier” -should I make you? (as in R is threatening Seul)
do rich kids do that? because of you, my friend who worked hard for five years almost got fired in one day -if we decided to call it even you should have kept your end of the deal. but you go back on your word/turn around and call the dept store? do you enjoy living life like that?
JW suddenly yells: Stop it
JW: what are you doing in a public place?
Seul goes into acting mode and pretends she cant breathe
JW asks seul: are you okay?
R to Seul: playing around
R to JW: you dont know anything so dont interfere
JW: I would like to do that .  i received the report , i heard AY’s explanation of what happened -i know the details better than you so apologize to her
R: why should I ?
JW says that the V-VIP customers spend like (a ton of money-my words not his) a year to earn the right to be there and on that day, their privilege was not respected
R says something about how being in that lounge was not that wrong
seul says if she knew it would end up like this she should have put up with it and not mention it -she mentions how her personality is so that she cant put up with rule infractions so she is upset
and JW tells her not to be upset since she has to apologize to R too for breaking her promise not to tell
JW makes seul apologize too since R found her friend’s bag and seul said she would not mention the incident but she did and got R’s friend in trouble and R tries to hit her but JW stops R and oska asks everyone to give him and seul some space to talk
————

JW: are you sulking? i asked if you’re sulking!
If a person asks, why do you not answer…
RI: How can a person do that?
JW: I knew it would turn out this way.
it’s not that i stood by her side. I was just on the side of the principle.
[* JW, you’ve mistaken her point.]
RI: What kind of people can spend $100,000 at a department store? moreover in one year?
what is and how much is it so different between me and them?
JW: Even if i tell you, you won’t understand it.
RI: Are you gonna speak in English?
You just try to say it. Ill be the one to understand it
JW: How much do you have in your bank account?
RI: Not much. Why?
JW: That’s it. Something like that is different.
RI: What?
JW: You know your bank balance but those people who are different from you don’t know theirs.
Because their home and foreign account balances increase every day, mininute and second.
JW: It’s still easy untill this point.
In social and economic systems, a social group that is created
due to the difference in divide method and quantities of wealth in the labor structure.[*]
Do you know what it is? It is “class”.
While they spend $100,000 a year, there are only two things they want. Inequality and discrimination
If they can’t reign and rule over, they want to be treated thoroughly discriminatingly.
For them, that is Reason and common sense.
RI: Are you like that, too?
JW: (I am) because there is no reason I should not.
R tells him to find her bike key
* White fox did this whole scene 🙂 wow so impressive-seriously great job.
—————-
JL comes up to them and asks why she is here and JW is surprised she didnt come for the filming
R says to JL she came to watch the car stunt
R said she is staying at a sauna that is 20mins away
JL scolds R for disobeying him
JL gives R the key to his room and tells her to wait there cuz he wants to talk to her and that he would be back in 2 hrs after hunting for locations.
when JW sees how happy she is, he trails after her asking “is that something to be happy about? When a guy tells you to wait at his hotel room?” and R skips along and remarks how windy it is and says aloud “should I take a shower” and JW says “do what?”
——-
JW tries to get a room for R
the whole place is full cuz of the staff for the music vid and oska’s fans came suddenly so even the room JW uses is taken by oska so JW is mad cuz he has to use a crappier room
——
seul and oska meet by the bluff/
oska asks Seul “was there a reason we had to meet again?” and she said “no-that is why I made one” and he repeats “make one?”
I wanted to get along with you again Oppa since we are going to be one family soon
if we leave it like this now – won’t we be uncomfortable?
Even though we didn’t have a clean break, it wasn’t like we were emotionally attached.
We weren’t in love with each other –that’s how I know it
She also asks who was with JW earlier –the one beneath his level or something and oska tells her not to just say anything about R and that R wasn’t JW’s guest, but his.
Oska: Don’t you understand what i mean? she is a woman i’m dating.
Seul: You’re lying!  She is not your type
oska: {guess: you think you’re the only one}

flashback to oska giving seul flowers
he is asking her to be the star in his life
how he will sing for her and stuff
and gives her a huge ring she said  she is sorry
she never thought of marrying him and she says dating is ok but not marriage
wow she is mean when she dumps him
never thought i would say this but poor oska
—-
oska  goes and knocks on JW’s door and asks JW to go with him to break a sweat and JW says no- it’s too cold and just to give him his room back
then oska says if i win, i will move to Kangnam and also that he would give up the jejudo room to JW
JW asks: what do you want that you are offering so much (or keep pushing me to bet)
oska says R and JW says “dont kid around” and oska says he is serious and that he needs her, oska taunts JW by saying “dont you have confidence”?
R hears them making plans for their race

Oska’s declaration scene:
JW tells oska that if he doesnt have confidence he will win to back down and oska says the same thing back to him
oska warns that if JW loses – JW cant tell oska what to do with R
JW: she is not the type of woman to fall for you
oska : is it possible you two dont know each other well
you’re the type of guy who cant throw away even one thing that is yours over one girl, but I can throw it all away’
girls can tell that from instinct, especially poor women
secretary kim says everything is set
oska: should we start
JW: yes but I am not going to go easy on you
oska says he wont lose cuz R has become important to him
R comes up and says she wants to go bike riding too
JW said it’s not the kind where you ride on the back
since they are betting – if she wins – she said she wants to be hired for the mv
and JW asks what she is going to wager (meaning what is she going to lose but she doesnt answer)

JW, Oska, and R are about to start their back road dirt bike race. Oska says the first one to arrive is the winner.  As they talk about the roads and how dangerous it is cuz it might be hard to get out of the woods if they take a wrong turn,
R asks JW “are you telling me that so I won’t come out?”
and JW says very sweetly ”I’m saying that cuz I’m worried. Are you sure you can do it?”
R: If I say I can’t – are you going to piggyback me?
JW: I have to carry you (in my arms) so I can see your face.
———————-
during the bike race – JW and oska like two boys were battling it out side by side on their bikes and accidentally bumped a road sign and made it point the wrong way so R following a few mins behind them goes the wrong way and gets lost

secretary kim -what was I suppose to call him? anyway he recites some kind of story or poem or some random stuff standing on the bluff and gets it filmed by someone to send to AY
the two guys come back but not R
JW was totally winning but he stopped cuz he heard R screaming into the mic/mike
even oska hears R yelling into the mike
JW goes after her
he keeps calling out where are you?
he tries her cell
oska is looking for her too
JW says R is not the type of girl who would be a victim
oska looks for her riding around in a car while JW searches on his bike
he follows the path she took

JW finds R:
JW looks in the bushes and is startled when R suddenly shows up out of nowhere –
i think he let out a girly scream-no it was more manly
R: what are you doing there? you didnt go down?
JW: what? what am I doing here? are you crazy? *do you have a death wish? if you can’t do it- why did you join the race? after all that bragging, you can’t even follow us? didnt even know the road so why did you come into the forest?
R: i followed the signpost and came the right way. but all of a sudden the road disappeared so what was I suppose to do?
JW: what about your cell phone? is it for looks? why didnt you answer? why?
R: something is off here – no cell phone reception, mike wouldnt work -and that broke (pointing to the bike) this is an expensive one huh?
JW: is that something to worry about now? are you ok? you’re not hurt anywhere?
R: I hurt my chance to debut a car stunt-by any chance is oska looking for me too?
JW: what if he is – why? what? waah – *almost killing someone and then saving him -what? then what was that scream earlier?
R: screaming sound? I didnt scream
JW: what are you talking about? you screamed “ahhhhhck!” twice
R: I didnt. what is a scream. if your surprised you suddenly scream but if you’re surprised would you press the button and then scream? and two times at that
JW: driving me crazy -I know I heard for sure a scream
R: ok say you did -but that wasnt me. you said you heard “ahhck” on the mic but when I am surprised I say “yaack” -in a totally pretty and cute way – you know?
JW: pretty and cute…since I kept saying you’re pretty- you got the concept in a weird way …where are you going?
R: there is a restaurant over there so I want to go there and call a taxi -why?
JW: driving me nuts – how can there be a restaurant in the middle of the forest you rockhead
R: rockhead? then what is that over there? (she points to a sign that says: mystery garden 44m)
*[you’ve driven me to hell and back]

* “did you go crazy from being eager to die”
omg this place is scary
they go together

OMG it’s yoonhee’s mom from SKKS!!!!!!!
she is the owner of this weird restaurant and JW asks to use the phone but it barely works and the place is the house that lit up in the painting !!!!!!
————
yoonhee’s mom tells JW to eat a lot so that scares him but then she asks you dont have cancer or anthing right ? which scares JW more
the woman acts like she has seen R before and knows stuff about R’s dad -JW finds out her dad taught her to drink at a young age – this is so weird
R looks at the all the bottles of alcohol and asks if it’s medicinal alcohol
the woman looked right at R and said that the alcohol was “medicinal alcohol – to save our daughter”.
(later we learn she gave them each a bottle of it-one dark pink and one yellow)
*based on what everyone said tonight – i think the woman was her dad and having R and JW switch souls or whatever is how he thinks he can help his daughter out of her poverty and stuff and that is why he said that bottle of alcohol was medicinal cuz it could cure and help his daughter if she finds love and happiness
———————
adorable scene:
when JW and R arrive at the hotel
JW is getting out of the cab and he is on the phone with oska:
uh, we just arrived at the hotel. everything is fine so dont worry and go to bed
R: is that oska – is he really worried about me?
JW: what if he did
R: cant I even ask
JW: uh – dont ask since it makes me angry
why did you accept those (looking at the bottles in her hand)
R: so you expect me not to accept something an older person gave me
when it’s good for your body medicinal alcohol
JW: you’re going to take care of your health with alcohol? be honest – you have an old man inside you dont you?
R (smirking): a few. out of them, there is one shy old guy and he wants me to tell you something
JW: tell me what?
R: a while ago, thank you. for coming to find me.
JW: if he was thankful, he should have said so when I went to find you. if you were thankful a while ago, why are you saying it now old man
R: if you keep this up, the old guy who likes to fight might come out
(she offers a bottle to him) here.
JW pushing the bottle away: I dont drink uncertain stuff
R: did I ask you to drink it? I’m asking you to pass it on to oska
JW grabs the bottle away from her: Are you trying to anger the heavens- I’m the one who saved you so why are you giving it to someone else?
R: you said you wouldnt drink uncertain stuff
JW: up to a minute ago, I didnt know
R: forget it- (takes back bottle) give it back. I’m going to give it to him in person
JW: there is no take backs ( like dont take back what you gave)
R reaching for it: give it back
JW: I wont
R bumps into JL

JL gets angry scene
JL glares at R and at JW
JL to R: I’m pretty sure I told you to stay in the room
R: for a short time, I went…
JL: for a short time where?why did you come down here? were you bored in seoul and came here?
R: that wasnt it
JL: what time is it now? follow me
JW: wait. I know that there are no empty rooms so are you saying you two are going to share a room?
JL: our family -no matter which gender- sharing one room is not a weird matter
JW calling out after them: it is weird -it’s weird!
—————————
R explains that she didnt come here to play and she wanted to take advantage of this opportunity since she may not get the chance again
JL: am I stupid? or am i doing this now cuz I dont want to see you do well? i told you you were lacking -that is wasnt time yet – why do you want to do something that dangerous
R: if i was afraid of getting hurt i wouldnt have even started. it wasnt because of ability,i didnt want to lose out cuz I was a girl
JL: if you dont want to lose out cuz you are a girl -find a different job or find another team because I will keep making you lose out till i die
(talking to the team): you guys pack your bags and come to my room
and he tells R to go to another room i think

JW shows up
JL to JW: what’s going on
JW: a man and a woman sharing one room -you might be ok with it but i think it’s really weird
JW tells R: I emptied out my room so come on
JL: she’s my family
JW: I’m responsible for your family for a few days since she is the winner of my dept store event
Jl to R: what is he talking about-what event?
R to JW: why are you doing this?
JW: if you’re really uncomfortable i wont stop you, but I’m asking you to use an empty room – is that something you dont want to do? I can share with (woo hyung)
JL asks if R won that trip with oska and she says yes
he seems surprised and says to himself “i did something stupid” or something like that like he is blaming himself for what happened and r figures out that JL signed her up but he cuts her off and says  to go
R says instead of making stunt group uncomfortable sharing rooms she says she will take JW’s room and inconvenience JW instead
she says she wants to visit the set in the morning

Slap scene -major daebak
JW asks R as he comes in with her: exactly what is your relationship with that guy (how close are you with that guy)?  even if you two were alone in one room and nothing happens – that kind of close? dont try to justify it as a teacher student relationship – i’m not going to be fooled.
Does that guy like you maybe? or did you two date?
R: if we dated – what are you going to do about it? whether i  dated someone or not – whether I’m in a room with a guy or outside – what does it have to do with you?
JW:I cant even ask?
R:uh dont ask cuz it’s making me mad. why did you come here? why are you following me around bothering me? what are you really feeling?
JW: you know
R: i dont know -how would i know?
J: you know -i know you know
if you are trying to figure out if I changed my mind between then and now- dont do it.
To lose everything I have for one girl – I have too much.
JW: that’s why I want to say, let’s hug once.
R: what?
JW: to me there are two groups, the girl I marry and the kind of girl you mentioned who I can play around with a few times and get rid of -but you hang around between there- so let’s hug once
R: After the hug, if you like it- what are you going to do then?
JW: I can help you live a different life than now
R: That’s great – then will I become Cinderella?
JW: No – the little mermaid.
gil ra im -your coordinates are always going to be between those two groups somewhere
Stay like that like a person who has nothing and then disappear like bubbles/foam.
This is the logic of a guy like me
She slaps him.
JW: think it over carefully and tell me
————–
R stays in the room thinking about what he said then goes outside and stunt extra guy comes over and tells her to introduce herself to the director. he went and interfered on her behalf since R came all the way here. he bragged about her and he said to keep it a secret from JL
and of course the director is seul
seul points out how R spoke informally so well and now R is using formal language
seul asks R for her list of skills
seul asks (jokingly) if R can jump from the 63rd building and R says she could jump but she would die
seul says she wondered how impressive R was since R is meeting oska
oska comes in and finds seul and everyone else at a meeting for the music vid and he is pissed asking why are you here and how she cant be there – he starts to make phone calls
oska and his manager start to yell at each other on sight
oska refuses to do it
he doesnt need the money
saying he didnt even like the song anyway
he kicks everyone out
then JW comes in and says he is sleeping there

JW gets the bed and oska the couch
both are upset
oska finds the alcohol R had wanted to give oska and JW runs over and snatched it out of oska’s grasp
JW asks how oska knows seul since seul is who JW went on blinddate with
JW points out that she never mentioned she knew oska
oska says we werent close enough to mention we knew each other
oska says seul was his anti fan

R sits in sauna room
JW sits outside on the patio and they both drink the alcohol the woman gave them and there is thunder and birds flying and they keep drinking the whole thing
her drink is dark pink and his is gold in color
it rains
next morning

holy cow
JW is in bed with oska’s arm on his chest but it’s R’s voice – omg this is getting confusing to type -it’s her voice narrating what is going on
R is at the sauna
and it’s JW’s voice and he thinks he is dreaming and doesnt like the dream he is having
JW/R cant believe this is a dream waking up with oska’s arm on him/her chest

they both realize what happened- body switch and scream at the same time-her/him at the sauna and him/her at the hotel room
cant tell if this is a good ending or bad
end
all the previous scenes from previews come out
including the kiss -nothing new

    I missed live air cuz i fell asleep early in the night. 😦
    i watched first 5mins just now and i will do the rest later.

    Oska: what is this? why are you there?
    JW: ???????

    (Don’t you think) I have to grasp a debtor’s[*] route at least.
    [*JW said “chae-nap-ja” which literally means “deliquent taxpayer”.]

    Oska: what is this mood – asking cuz I am curious but what is the relationship between you two?
    JW: ?????

    there are approximately 230 countries in the world and i can speak five languages.
    despite of it, there is no word that can define what the relationship is between us.

    *”does the jejudo bean rice suit your palate?”
    hyung (brother) you have to go somewhere to look good
    oska to JW: (????) dont care who you do business with

    did a jejudo’s bean rice suit your palate?
    [referring to the incident last night. bean rice is a token of jail in korean.
    for example, “eat bean rice”=go to jail]
    I guess you look better when you’re locked in some place.
    [literally translated. it also can be interpreted as like, “you do like to make the troubles.”]
    O to J:You think so too?. My beauty(popularity) doesn’t really choose when and where.
    O to R:He is always like this.

    I rather avert my eyes.
    [-> I rather go blind.]

    Live recap? Wow, thank you SO much!
    (It’s a tiny part but why was JW surprised when he learnt that R wasn’t in Jeju for stunts? Since he already knew she was in Jeju because she won the date-trip with Oska… Did I miss misunderstand something?)

    Thank you again for this wonderful recap, I’m so glad I discovered your blog!

    Thanks for the recap and now my search for the raw vid. By reading the gist of Ep. 5, I find JW is less being a jerk and more caring for RI in a normal way a person worries about his girl missing in the woods. I guess he’s too worried about her safety to spout his usual nonsense — berating her poverty and shabbiness. Maybe, I’ll fall in love with JW again after this episode. Eps. 3 and 4 really throw me off and I find his verbal abuse totally offensive to women in general.

    Softy and team, thank you for doing the live transcript. It helps us understand the raw video. I’ve been following your transcripts since SKKS. You’ve done an excellent job and I truly appreciate your works. I’m loving SG so much. The dialogue is so good. Kudos to the writer of this drama. Oska and JW are such fun to watch whether they are competing, helping each other out or working together (like finding Lime). The “slap scene”, my take on it is… I think JW is still trying to convince himself that once he changes Lime’s lifestyle, he’ll lose interest in her just as how he shows no interest in other richy/shallow women thus “disappear like bubbles”. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode.

    To M, JW was informed by his assistant that the reason why RI left for Jeju-do ahead of time because her group (stuntmen) was chosen to do the stunts for Oska’s Music Video. JW thought RI was part of it that’s why she left a week before her scheduled promotional date with Oska ^_^

    Joo-won is certainly an ass, that’s a well-deserved slap indeed. what he’s trying to gain by “the little mermaid”-comment, does he want to marry other girl, like the prince in that story and make the little mermaid/Raim sacrifice herself? By, I don’t know, just go back to “her place” after he has finished with her. Then he told her to answer him? Whether she agreed? *did I get this right* Heh? I’m dying to know what’s going to take to make Raim fall for such a man. Other than his face. Oh yes and his money. :p

    “you’re the type of guy who cant throw away what is yours, but I can throw it all away’
    girls can tell that from first glance, especially poor women”
    What does he imply here? Does he mean that JW cares too much about his status and so on, so he will never go for a girl like Ra-im? I hope he does, since I don’t like the term he used to call Ra-im “ poor women” here.

    “JW: what if he is – why? what? waah – almost killing someone and then saving him -what? then what was that scream earlier?”

    I read it many times and finally come to the conclusion that it should be him, who was been killed (worry to dead) and she still tried to save Oska…hahaha that was cute. I love the jealous JW.

    “medicinal alcohol – to save our daughter”.

    Lots of people in Soompi were afraid that the end may be bad. Let’s hope not. How about writing a warning to SBS, so they don’t make that kind of craps ending like WHIB? Does anyone know SBS’ e-mail or something? I will definitely complain, if they want to kill anyone here, accept the spoilt rich girl, since she wanted to push Ra-im down from the 67 floor something????

    “JW pushing the bottle away: I dont drink home brewed stuff (total guess but i think i am right)”

    Ha, boy, and later on he just drank that all up himself hehehehe.

    “he seems surprised and says to himself “i did something stupid” or something like that like he is blaming himself for what happened and r figures out that JL signed her up but he cuts her off and says to go”

    Hahahaha, I know that part of him did not want Ra-im to be involved in the project also because he did not want her to get too close to Oska.
    But why the hell did he sign her up for?
    Anyway it is good to see him get all ripped up than being passive and dulled all the time.

    “J: you know -i know you know
    if you are trying to test if during that time I changed how I felt – dont do it
    to lose everything I have for one girl – i have too much”

    What does he mean here? Can anyone help?

    And thanks a lot for the recaps and translation. It’s really my lifesaver, since this series would be wasted without understanding the conversations.
    I have seen that the numbers of visiters have been increased much lately here hehehe.

    Thank you, Whitefox, for the translation and Shirley, for the videos, they allowed me to see each particular scene (at the fullest), and of course I am going to watch the whole episode after reading Softy’s recap. And thank you for sharing discussion about the *portion/alcohol lady* (I dont know how to call her). I hope we get to know more about RI and her family; and I am guessing that she will **experience** how someone who doesn’t have to worry about $$ in her account (since she is now in JW’s body)… the experience is insane and at the same time so much fun!!

    JW, JW! There I’ve been praisng you for worrying about RI’s safety and even willing to lose the bike race to his cousin. Then he has to go and ask RI for a fling, declaring he’s not willing to throw away his riches and status for one mere poor girl. No wonder he gets slapped. He deserves more than that actually, though one point in his favour is he says everything out and doesn’t attempt to cheat RI with false promises. JW may be thinking he’s attracted to RI physically only and once they have a short sexual relationship he’ll get over her uniqueness/strangeness and thus he can merriy go back to his senseless, worthless blind-dating and ventually get married to another rich, “educated” woman with whom he’s bound to live a most boring, sterile married life. One point I don’t understand: Oska says unlike our jerk JW, he’s willing to throw everything away for a girl — what does he mean? He’s competing the bike race for Ri because he wants to use her as a tool for revenge against Seul, isn’t it? And he can’t be talking about Seul as she’s his match in statur, etc. Maybe with the soul swapping, JW will learn to appreciate the uniquequalities of RI and he’ll discover his feelings for her are not solely based on physical attraction and downright curiosity. He can do the ultimate redemption — by agreeing to swap body with RI again in order save her from some deadly disease as predicted by the old woman. This may reaveal how much he cares for RI and he may be at last accept he can’t do without her. JW, at the moment, is in denial mode, just refusing to believe that he “could” fall for someone so different from his perceived “perfect partner”. You’d better do this, mate, otherwise I’ll never forgive your “mermaid” speech and neither will RI, if she’s a true woman (meaning women have memories like elephants and can raise issues after 20 years of married life over such hasty unkind words when they have marital spats!).

    Thank you Shirley for the links !

    I’m hooked by the forest scene ^^ so here some random thoughts :

    – the restaurant’s sign said 신비가든 which means Mystic Garden (Oooooh~)

    – I love KMK and her ax lol

    – JW’s bottle is filled with daisies like the ones he tortured back then in his yard and RI’s bottle was filled with what ? Roses ? Because she’s a girl ? B)

    – What is up with the poor cat ? Chained like it was some kind of Cerberus or something ? ROFL

    Actually, I’m not in love with this show yet but so far it’s quite entertaining.
    But a part of my brain keeps telling me : wow 4 episodes only and we have something like the bag and the closet scenes ? I mean they sure know how to deliver tension but why now ? So soon ?

    And the all poor chaebol who hurts people he loves the most because of social pressure. Er. I don’t buy it.

    JW sounds like someone who always has his way, without giving a damn thought about people’s judgement. If he really had some sort of shame about being attracted to [i]a lower class woman[/i], would he show up , looking like a christmas tree to her work place ? Several times ? Would he say at his own work place in front of everybody that he is RI’s fan ? I don’t think so.

    The way I see it : JW barged into RI’s life (which was good regarding her defenses) and then he just got lost in his own head, shutting her down while she was starting to open the door.

    Thank. God. This one has a shrink lol

    Anyway, thank you Softy for your work, let’s the Body Swap Rock On !

    @Banhmat : “J: you know -i know you know
    if you are trying to test if during that time I changed how I felt – dont do it
    to lose everything I have for one girl – i have too much”

    I think he referred to the rooftop confessions. Then lots have been going on til the changing rooms to his house incidents. He confessed how he thinks RI is amazing and then they probably understand each other and try to go on a ‘date’ – the bag incident. We know he harshly state the reality how she’s not up to his level and such.
    So he probably meant, RI wants to test if he’s changed his mind now that he came all the way to Jeju to follow her despite of their last encounter of how she’s just a charity case and neighbour. That’s why he said he still feels the same way he did before “to lose everything I have for one girl – i have too much”

    what is and how much is it so different between me and them?
    JW: Even if i tell you, you won’t understand it.

    You just try to say it. It is me that understands it. [meaning “don’t care about whether i understand or not.”]
    JW: How much do you have on your bank account?
    RI: Not much. Why?
    JW: That’s it. Something like that is different.
    RI: What?
    JW: You know your bank balance but those people who are different from you don’t know theirs.
    Because their home and foreign account balances increase every day, mininute and second.

    If they can’t reign and rule over, they want to be treated thoroughly discriminatingly.

    I thought watching raw vids without understanding anything other than “hi”, “thank you”, “i love you”, “are you crazy?”, “where are you?”, “what?”, “are you okay?”, etc. was crazy enough. But after finding this site, i ended up watching raw vids WHILE having a notepad of the live recaps next to it. LOL

    Reading subtitles embedded in the vids was hard enough. You can guess how it is reading it on a notepad on the side of the vid. Not that i’m complaining 😀 I super love this site! And i really appreciate the effort and love put on each live recap by everyone who contributed. Thanks so much! Keep up the good work! ^ ^
