O-M-G !!! THE miracle happened – I feel like I am dreaming right now -nobody wake me up….best last scene EVER!!!!! 🙂
Watching tonight’s episode made me think that greed started all this and caused so many people pain that they are having trouble dealing with so how great would it be if a new found love was the solution to end all that misery. * more thoughts at the end of the episode.
*E27 translated video preview in comments
To think it only took 26 episodes for this scene to come out. Wonder how many more we have to wait for till the really daebak moments arrive like a wedding or a first date. 🙂
Special thanks to Yoonni for clarifying and filling in those blanks. You are a godsend. 🙂
J goes up to the attic room and packs her stuff. She picks up her dad’s pic frame and cries while looking at it.
The dad comes home and asks why they are standing around. GM says J came and is packing upstairs. Dad: she did – when I went to the koshiwon a while ago I didn’t get to see her face properly. The dad asks why the mom does not look well-are you feeling sick? The mom says she is ok. GM says the mom isnt ok–from a while ago during lunchtime she looks like she has a fever but wont listen at all when I told her to go and lie down. GM says to dad: after J leaves-you take her in and make her lie down.
J comes down and the dad asks when she came – if he knew she was coming, she could have come with him. J: sell the farm -since it’s under your name ajussi –you go to the realty office and put it up for sale and sell it. Immediately by today. The dad agrees. J: and move out within the month. It doesn’t matter to me if you have a place to move to or not. No matter what – starting from today – a month later you have to move out. Dad: ok I get it – don’t worry. I will move out within the month. She says she wont pay anything at all for the moving expenses – there is no way you expect any right? (meaning they shouldn’t expect her to after what they did) The dad says he doesn’t. J: that’s all then. Dad: J ah – when I sell the farm, on the day of the contract – you need to come – don’t send your step mom- we cant trust that woman. J: even so- can she be less trustworthy than you and ajumma. Dad: but still – you come yourself – if I cant hand it over to you – I can’t trust her. J: ok. She glares over at the mom and leaves
The mom goes after her and calls out “J ah – look at ajumma for a minute” but J keeps walking so the mom holds onto J’s jacket. J pulls away from her and yells at the mom “don’t touch me.” The mom says “ok I am sorry –this is a muffler – it’s cold so make sure you go around wearing it. J: muffler? That it’s mine? mom: it’s yours I knitted it with my own hands. J: you did? she takes the bag and takes out the muffler. she throws it down and stomps on it and thanks the mom and walks off.
Mom picks it up, dusts it off and hugs it- crying.
* I cried watching her cry cuz I wondered if she had to choose again – would she choose her farm over J? cuz the way she cried made me think she knew she lost someone precious to her – maybe someone more precious than the farm itself.
J cries on the bus ride back.
As J walks back, TH is waiting there for her. J: what brings you here in this neighborhood– did you by any chance come to see me? TH: yes. J: you did – what made you come find me. TH: were you coming from somewhere. J: as you can see I am coming from your home after packing my stuff – you knew didn’t you ajussi – that ajumma stole my contract – didn’t you? that is why that day when the contract appeared you couldn’t make eye contact with me. So you did know – I thought “maybe,” but you knew -since when did you know? TH: I am sorry. J: for what? I asked how long since you’ve known so what are you sorry for? Is it cuz you knew from a long time ago – so long that you don’t remember? TH: that isnt it. J: then when did you find out? Answer me – to me it’s a really important problem. TH: I found out the day of the pear harvest. (J says stuff that hurts him-this is the gist of it) J: that’s how you handled the case? Officer Hwang TH who bragged about upholding the law and justice–in the end it’s useless–*your arms fold inward. you are only brusque and strict at your job with others but with your own mom’s crime you are too generous.
*Yoonni said: “Your arms fold inward” is an expression in Korea for indicating that people take the side of their family. So if you had the choice between outsiders who are correct and your family or loved ones that are incorrect, you would still choose your family.
J: Why didn’t you tell me – back then you could have told me the next day or the day after that-you had plenty of time to tell me. TH: I am sorry. J says with tears in her eyes: did you know? I liked you ajussi. starting from one day my heart kept thumping whenever I saw you ajussi- not knowing you were two faced like this- you are the one who taught me to change the ajumma’s heart –if I really believed my dad was alive that I needed to come to my senses and live right – you were the person who taught me that ajussi –the moment when I needed someone’s help the most, you were the only one who held out his hand to me – that is why I asked you to buy me coffee – did you really think I did that cuz I wanted to drink coffee– I really trusted you without any doubt – after my dad you were the only man – why do people I trust, each and every one keep betraying me– one day my dad threw me away and left suddenly and betrayed me the most – ajumma did too –ajussi did too– like this, if the same thing keeps happening – doesn’t that mean something is wrong with me? it is huh? (refers to herself in third person) cuz the kid sets her affection –it must be cuz she keeps trusting too easily and grow attached – in the end it’s my fault for trusting – isnt it? T says her name.
J: do you have the pendant I made you. TH says yes and holds it out. She throws it away and a car runs over it. J: that’ enough now – go and never come find me again – even if we run into each other on the street – don’t act like you know me. TH stands there as she walks away and then he slowly looks back at her. He goes over and picks up the duck pendant and sees it’s been scratched.
He looks back to where J went and holds the pendant tightly.
SY thanks TB for lunch and says she ate well. He tells her not to get sleepy at the office cuz she is full. She did that last time and was woken up. She says she wont get sleepy. Back then it was cuz she didn’t get enough sleep. He tells her to be careful cuz these days among reporters they are talking about her. they get on the elevator and she asks what people are saying about her. it’s ok you can tell me. TB: “she isnt the same Cha team leader as long ago.” “like someone who doesn’t have it together (is lacking) – she can’t focus (pay attention)” “she got lazy” “if she keeps this up she will get her position as team leader taken away.” SY: it’s ok – if I pay attention to each one of those talks – how could I live it will be too tiring. And it’s not like I can tell them my situation for them to understand. Also it’s not true – as team leader and as reporter I am still exceptional. What time do you get off work today- should we go see a movie? She gets a call from the Director to come with TB
They are meeting with the Director- the head boss. He asks if SY has anything going on at home these days. She says there isnt. He asks if her health isnt well. there must be a reason why she is not herself these days. He says how he has watched her all these years and had big expectations from her. maybe he misjudged her -she seems like a different person these days. the programs this team turned in arent like they used to be. he cites how she reported something later than another station. what are you doing? SY says sorry. Then he starts in on TB saying how TB turned down the blind date with his daughter and stuff. TB says sorry. The boss says he didn’t call them here to hear apologizes. he says how he is going to change up the ambience and a new manager director is coming tm. The boss says he wants to give them a homework. He asks if they know there is an old grandpa who saved a lot of money (10 billion won) and is donating it to a university. TB says he heard the old man had saved all his life running a fruit business and donated his whole fortune. SY says how everyone is looking for the old man but he hid his identity so no one can find him. The boss wants them to go find the old man and get an interview and this homework has the job title of team leader on the line. SY: team leader position? the boss: why? does it it hurt your feelings? SY: no it doesnt. (so this means whoever gets the interview gets the job title – actually SY would get to keep it and TB would be the one who gets to be her boss if he wins)
When they leave the office, TB tells her – it’s a little unusual but work is work. SY agrees: of course – let’s each not have any pressure and do our best and have a clean result. TB: that goes without saying. SY: it looks like watching that movie will be difficult. TB: I never said I would. SY: oh did you – I will tell you in advance I will be a late today. TB says he will be too. They tell each other to work hard and walk off in different directions.
She walks away saying she has to make sure she finds the old man first-no matter what.
TB yells “yes” and says “his chance has finally come”
SY says to herself – this has your pride as a reporter on the line
TB: since the opportunity came – don’t let it slip away and hang onto it no matter what.
SY: show this baby how much of a smart and cool (impressive) reporter you are
TB: let’s go up as high as you can go up.
They each work separately really hard. TB gets the other guy to help –trying to locate the old man.
TH sits outside in his car and is playing with the duck pendant. He hung it on his rearview mirror and he watches it swing back and forth. He remembered how she said she liked him and how her heart beat faster cuz of him – how he is the one who held out his hand when she needed it the most and really trusted him. He sighs and drives off.
*It took like 100 screencaps to get a clear shot of this duck pendant- at first the only thing I noticed right off was how its holding coffee, but now you can clearly see the sneakers around its neck. 🙂
TH goes and gets two coffees and some food and drops it off at her place outside her door. He notices her laces are undone. And remembers how she walked with her laces untied earlier. He laces up her boots and puts them back. He doesn’t knock and just leaves
J is still sitting in the dark. She opens the door to go out to the bathroom and finds the drinks and food. She throws them away and just heads over to the bathroom.
The mom is lying down and the dad brings the mom some water and medicine tells her to get up to take it. He say how she is running a fever-will the medicine be enough and asks if she doesn’t need to go to the hospital. she says all she needs to do is sleep after taking the medicine. He says TH and TP came home expect for TS who has to work late and he is going to tell the sons that J came and left and talk about the moving. let’s see and if you dont feel any better let’s go to the hospital later. He tells her to lie back down.
TP: heard mom is not feeling well. The dad tells the sons (TP and TH) how the mom is running a fever-refuses to go to the hospital even tho he said let’s go. So he gave her medicine and now she is sleeping. The GM says the mom did enough to get sick – suffering alone all this time with her heart aching (with remorse). This afternoon too – J wasn’t just your average cold and mean. She made up her mind to come on so strong when she came–that kid was cold as winter. TP: J came by? Dad: that is why I called you – J packed her stuff and left – and we finished up talking about the farm – J asked to sell the farm so early tm morning I am going to put up the farm for sale at the realty office. She asked us to move out too so I told her we would move out within the month. TP: within the month – that doesn’t leave much time. GM mutters it’s really not enough time. the dad says to GM if they look for a place to live they should be able to find one. Dad: When J said to sell the farm – dad felt the most comfortable (in his heart) –now your mom can get some sleep –anyway just know this is how things ended up. During that time for a lot of reasons I felt uneasy but now we need to work hard and mom and dad will look for a place to live. TH and TP both say “ok”
TP goes down stairs and is startled by TS calling out TP’s name. TP: hyung when did you come home? TS shushes him. TP: what dad was saying…..why? he leans closer and TS pulls him into the room.
N is in there. TP and N stare at each other. TP smiles and says: hi Noodle –I am your uncle TP. We met last time huh? N sort of nods hello at him. TP pays him a compliment about being good at saying hello and affectionately calls him “our Noodle.” TP asks TS: what’s happened? Let’s go out and talk. TS: we can’t -if we go out what do we do if dad comes down? Dad called so I told him I was staying overnight at the hospital. TP: when the mood at home is like this how could you bring him in here? TS: you think I brought him cuz I wanted to? MS said she couldn’t watch him anymore. TP says that ajumma should have kept watching him longer. Tell her about what is going on in the home and ask her again. TS: I tried but she wont even listen. TP:what do we do? J came today to pack up her stuff and said to move out within the month. Mom is sick and lying down. TS:what? TS sits down in frustration. TP stares at N and asks TS: so what are you going to do. TS: I don’t know too. He gets up and asks N if he knows how to contact his mom. do you know your mom angelica’s phone number? I asked if you know your mom’s number. Say something – you know how to talk. Do you know angelica’s contact number? I said answer – why do you not talk when you are with me? You know how to talk. TP: hyung lower your voice. TS: this kid doesn’t talk when he is with me –do you know how infuriating that makes a person? He talks to MS and you said he talked to you last time. N says to TP suddenly: I have to pee. TS: what? N glances at TS then looks at TP. TS says to TP: See – he talks to you. he is looking at you and talking. N says again he has to go to pee. TS tells him to hold it in. N sort of gives him a mean look. TS: look at this punk and how he stares at me. TP tells TS to be more patient. TP asks N: do you really have to go -is it urgent? N nods yes. TS tells N to pee into the empty water bottle. TP: hyung what are you doing to the kid? TS: then what do we do? MS went out and isn’t home and her house is locked up.
TP sneaks out to see if the coast is clear. TS comes over with N and they take him to the bathroom and stand guard. TS tells N to just hurry and do his business and come out and not take long. GM comes over and asks if they are in line. She asks who is in the bathroom. TP says TH is in there. she yells at TH to hurry and come out cuz GM is in a hurry. TP says he has something to tell her and drags her into her room saying he has to tell her there. GM says just say it here and don’t make her move cuz it will come out.
TP pushes her into the room. She asks what is going on-she is in a rush so talk fast. TP: GM you know how hard I am trying to live like a man don’t you? She says get to the point cuz she is about a minute away from bursting. hurry or I am …she tries to leave the room. He stops her and asks for allowance money cuz he doesn’t have money these days. she threatens to beat him up and tells him to stand aside and asks what he hid in the bathroom for him to be like this. GM goes over to the bathroom and looks inside and it’s empty. TP: what would I hide GM? Since you are in a hurry -go in and do your business. She goes inside. TP sighs with relief
SY is at home and still trying to locate the old man. She is talking to another reporter and says even an old address is ok cuz she just needs to go to that neighborhood and ask around and discover a clue. she can meet the elders from the neighborhood too. she writes down an address and TB comes home. She quickly hangs up saying she will call back later. SY: you came? TB: yes – you must have come home early. She says a little while ago and asks if he ate dinner and he said he ate. He tries to see what she wrote asking what it is but she takes it with her to her room saying she will go in first- and for him to rest. she tells him they have to eat dinner with her parents this weekend cuz it’s her dad’s birthday. he says ok. she gets a call and says she will go in. He tries to eavesdrop on her conversation but he gets a call and he goes to his room to write down the address and SY listens in this time. she tries to memorize the address as she goes back into her room. TB looks out suspiciously and catches her going back into her room
The mom is in the kitchen when TH comes out. She asks if he is going to work. TH: you woke up already? weren’t you feeling unwell. Mom: no I had some fever but now it’s better. What kind of work is it for you to leave this early in the morning? He says cuz he left work early yesterday he is going in early. She tells him to drink some protein drink before he leaves. He says he doesn’t feel like it and will just go, but she insists he should drink some before he goes since it won’t take long. You are young so you are like this but if you go around being hungry – later when you age it won’t be good for your digestion. Hurry and come in(to the kitchen) She goes and makes him that drink. He watches her make it. She forgot to add milk and then forgot to heat some rice cakes for him to eat. She says if he eats a few pieces he will feel fuller, it tastes better to heat on a frying pan but since he doesn’t have time she is going to heat it up in the microwave.
She tells him to drink some and then go. She says how just making something simple as that is making her sweat from the exertion. He says sorry to her – last time I think I got overly angry. Mom: what are you talking about – don’t say such things. If you say that, mom gets more humiliated and embarrassed. When you are such a loving obedient kid – since mom committed that sin-how angry and disappointed you must have been – I understand why – mom is embarrassed to even look at your face so don’t say that. TH says he will eat it well and drinks. she feeds him and they smile at each other. she tells him to drink slowly.
H goes over to TS’s room with MS and they peek thru the window. H: mom why isn’t N here? Did he go somewhere? MS: did he go upstairs? Then does it mean the elders all know. H: then is N going to keep living here from now on? MS: he has to since N’s dad is the eldest ajussi. let’s go – since he is with his dad he must be well. Let’s go
TP sneaks out of the house first and checks if the coast is clear and brings TS and N out. TS puts N in the car. They both tell N to “hide” by sitting low in the seat so he can’t be seen and N obeys. TP asks: what are you going to do? Are you going to take him with you to the hospital. TS: how can I take him when there are so many eyes that can see. TP: so what are you going to do? TS: maknae ah. TP: what? Me? TS’s eyes are pleading.
TP goes to work with N. Y cant’ see N yet cuz she is behind a partition and the computer monitor. TP calls out good morning. Y: you came? Congratulations on your first day of work. TP: yes thank you sajangnim (“proprietor” – sounds so weird to call her “owner”) Y comes around saying how she organized one side already and then notices N. Y: whose kid is he? TP starts to lie (a friend I know – his…but N looks at TP so TP feels guilty and changes his mind and tells the truth) TP: he is my older brother’s son. It’s really not my style to impose on my first day of work but the situation ended up like this. I am sorry sajangnim. Y: hyung? You have another hyung? TP: yes the big hyung. I am asking you to please not ask me anymore. Y: ok. She steps closer to N and smiles at him. Y:what is your name? N: it is Noodle. Y: Noodle? Like “noodles” you eat? Your name is really fun. I am Nam Y. she holds out her hand and says “it’s nice to meet you.” N shakes her hand and smiles. TP asks N to go and sit on the sofa.
Y asks if they should organize the new products that came in yesterday first. TP: no before we organize the products – we have to finish up with the store’s interior. The new mannequins we ordered will be delivered by 11am and the tables will arrive around then too. And we can go to the chong hang store at 2pm. Before then should we lay out the (fake) grass. Y: grass? TP walks over and steps on it explaining it’s too thin so he thinks they should switch it out. He asks if she bought something. Y: oh that’s right you told me yesterday to buy it. TP: you forgot? Then you didn’t buy any of the plants for the first day opening? Y: today I should write it down on my palm. Let’s lay out the grass tm.
TP points to some racks and says this side will be for casual wear and products for teens. And makes suggestions to make it brighter-what do you think. Y: it’s good – since it will pop (stand out) kids will like it. TP: then give me those (color) swatches. Y:what? TP: swatches – I told you to buy pastel pink. You forgot that too? Y: no yesterday I am sure I paid for it. TP: you did? and? Y: I must have left it there. He says how she isn’t at the age where she should be forgetting. Isn’t she in her early 40s. Y is offended and asks: do I look like I am in my 40s? TP treads carefully and says: do I look like a foolish guy who will guess a woman’s exact age. He says she looks like she is in her mid 40s if he had to estimate. Y: I am not. TP: then what is it? No way – are you late 40s? She sighs and walks away. she calls out N’s name.
Y walks over and asks if N ate breakfast. Ajumma didn’t eat so I bought tukboki-want to eat it together? TP says that sounds good cuz they haven’t eaten breakfast yet. At this point TP doesn’t trust her (cuz she is so forgetful) and asks: you bought the tukboki correctly right? Y: of course. From a while ago I was heating it in the microwave. Suddenly there is a loud pop and Y yells out in alarm. there is smoke coming from the back. Y says she forgot to make a hole before heating it. TP is speechless
YS asks J: are you going to lie there all day? Over people like that – why are you stewing for so long lying down when they don’t matter. Don’t do that and go to the department store with me –if you go out and do some “eye-shopping” (browsing) you will feel better. J just lies there. YS: ok it’s good for you to lie there but don’t we need to figure out the problem with the farm? Do you want to live in this pitiful place leaving that valuable farm there? J says she told them to sell the farm as soon as they can. YS: really? When? You did well. Cuz that place is so valuable – as soon as it’s put up for sale it will sell right away. Then get plenty of rest while I go out.
The mom stares at J’s scarf after it had been dry cleaned and puts it away in the wardrobe
Y asks if N wants to eat ice cream. N nods yes. Y gives him choices-chocolate, vanilla, green tea, and strawberry. He smiles and says chocolate. Y says ok and goes to get it. (N seems to really like Y) SY’s parents show up and the mom calls out “are the preparations going well? Where did she go?” They cant see her so the dad calls out for “chujae” (younger sister in law). the mom calls out Y’s name. They look down and see N. N looks up at them. The mom asks N: who are you? I asked who you were.
Y comes over and N hides behind Y. mom: what is he- who is he? Y: that unni… mom: who is he and why is he clinging to you? hurry and answer – who is he? Dad: “chujae” tell us -who is that kid. Y tells them the kid is TB’s older brother’s. mom and dad both repeat TS’s name. mom: the eldest who is a physical therapist. They are both shocked. Mom: that son who hasn’t even married has a son this big? The mom made a remark about N looking mixed so Y covers N’s ears. Dad says Hwang had a son? Y: the elders on that side doesn’t know yet. Dad:what do you mean they don’t know – the in laws still don’t know? Y: must not have been able to tell yet – I don’t know much – cuz TP shi just brought him for a short time. mom: what? How could that happen? But why is he in your store? Did Hwang son in law (TB) tell you to watch over him? Y: no not Hwang son in law (TB) – TP shi-the youngest brother. He is working at my store as the manager. Mom: what? Who is working as the manger? who?
*This means SY’s dad can tell YJ so now TS is saved from marrying her. YJ will probably dump him anyway when she learns he lost the farm.
KJ is looking at some cartoon illustrations. Another guy comes over and shows him one that looks like a poporo squirrel with a bad perm and says it’s first place – isn’t it really useful? KJ reads it “paporo” and shakes his head “no.” the guy insults KJ’s taste claiming it’s cute. The guy says there is no point in looking thru that pile cuz they were rejected. KJ finds one of a duck that looks like the one J drew of TH’s duck pendant. KJ: then I can take this right? The guy says yes it doesn’t matter if KJ takes it-then the guy finds faults with J’s illustrations and story. KJ says he likes it and reads the name of the student who drew it: Baek JE.
* omg how cute – her duck characters are the whole family – the ajumma with the permed hair is in the middle holding a rake and her four sons next to her- two on each side of her. the far right looks like TS with glasses then next to the mom is TB wearing a tie. on the other side of the mom is TH holding that coffee and at the end TP with curly hair and sunglasses.
J gets a call. KJ calls her. J: hello? KJ: hello – are you Baek JE? J: who are you? KJ introduces himself. He asks if she had submitted a sketch not too long ago to KMP called “O–duck-family character.” J: yes so? KJ: it’s too bad but it didn’t make it to the finals for KMP but I liked the character you made. She says it’s ok -she isn’t interested and hangs up on him. He calls back and asks if she is in the elevator but she hangs up on him again. (he said that cuz in Korea cell phone calls drop during elevator rides)
KJ goes to TH’s office. KJ says hi to TH first and then D. KJ sits between D and TH. TH is questioning the same guy from before. KJ listens in as TH questions the guy. TH says to the suspect: I am asking you again – what is the exact date you received the object. The guy cant remember if it was the 5th or 10th and says he thinks for sure it was on the 25th so TH leans in and asks: are you playing with me now? Are you not going to answer clearly? KJ echoes TH and tells the guy to answer clearly. TH tells KJ to stay quiet. TH yells at the suspect to hurry and say the date. KY whispers to the guy : hurry and talk. TH glares at KJ. KJ says he will just play games while waiting and takes out his cell phone. TH says to the suspect: just cuz you keep saying you don’t know doesn’t mean it will work out. It might just get dangerous for you if you do that. What is the date? There is loud game music that distracts them. TH looks over and calls out KJ’s name loudly in warning. KJ says he will switch it to vibrate. TH says to the suspect: I asked what date? guy says he thinks it was the 15th. TH: are you not going to say where the location was? The guy starts to answer but there is a phone call. TH yells at KJ: look here! but KJ says: I think it’s your phone officer Hwang. the suspect says it’s in TH’s pocket. TH picks up and it’s his team leader.
SY is still looking for the old man questioning the neighbors nearby. She asks them to look at the picture of the old man cuz she heard he used to live here. They say they never saw him before. TB shows up. He is yelling into the phone that he was misinformed cuz the old man never lived around here. He hangs up when he sees SY. TB asks what brings her here. SY: what do you think – it must be for the same thing as you-you must have been misinformed yesterday too. He makes a sardonic comment about how coincidences occur and asks where she got this tip. She says she cant tell him cuz it’s a confidential source. TB: since I came all the way here – I was thinking of dropping by to see my parents – what do you want to do?
SY and TB and the family are eating pears and drinking tea. SY: you were surprised cuz we suddenly dropped by to visit weren’t you? dad says he isnt and invites her to drop by suddenly anytime. Mom: wasn’t even thinking about it and since you two came –I don’t know how good this is and I am so glad to see you. TB: you mean that mom? mom: of course – why would I say anything I don’t mean? Right mother? She asked the GM. GM says these days in the home there wasn’t much to smile like there was a storm at home about but since you two came it’s nice like it’s a home where people live. SY asks why- did something happen at home. TB makes a face to the family not to talk. SY: please tell me GM cuz TB shi likes his privacy and doesn’t talk about that at all. GM says it’s nothing –nothing in particular – it’s just cuz she is aging every day so her body isnt like the old days-that’s why. SY says that’s not true that the GM is not that old. The mom says the pear is really sweet and urges SY to eat some.
TS shows up and announces he is home. He notices SY. SY stands and says hello to him. TS goes over to her asking when she came. TB says they dropped by for a short time while passing through. TB: you are home early. TS tells SY to sit comfortably. The dad tells TS to sit too since TB and SY cant stay long so TS goes and sits by TP. SY suddenly says “omo” and points to N. TB and the dad ask why she said that and follows her finger. Everyone looks at N. GM: what is this. dad asks N who he is. TP gets up and says to N: you came up – I told you to stay downstairs. Let’s go down. Dad: wait – stop. I asked who he is. TS is stunned. The mom asks TP who N is. Then GM and the dad ask again “who is he?” TP: your grandson. SY: grandson?! TP: I said he is your grandson. GM: what? The dad takes a broom and almost hits TP and TP says “stop dad- it’s not me – it’s big (oldest) hyung.” Dad:what? TP: I said it’s big hyung. He is big hyung’s son. TP hugs N close. Everyone looks over at TS. Dad: is that true? TS – is he your son? Hurry and answer. TS- is he your son? TS stands and says “yes he is my son” SY’s mouth falls open. mom: how –TS’s son –how could he –how could such a grown? GM says N’s skin color is different he is dark. TB explains: 9 years ago when hyung was in the Philippines –he dated a Filipino young lady names Angelica –it’s not hyung’s fault – dad – mom – GM- angelica had the kid without telling hyung and hid him from him for 9 years. The dad attacks TS with the broom and hits him. Dad: this punk! TB tries to hold the dad back but the dad trips TS and has him on the floor in seconds. The dad starts to choke TS. TP and TB try to stop the dad. mom hits the dad saying: TS’s dad why are you doing this – when the new daughter in law is here. SY tells the mom: that’s ok mother – that sort of thing is ok but father can’t beat him. The mom pushes SY away saying “move away – what are you going to do if you fall down” (cuz of the baby) TB tells the dad to hold in his anger cuz it’s not hyung’s fault. TP tells the dad to relax cuz his blood pressure can’t go up. N just calmly watches his dad being choked by his grandfather.
TH is sitting outside J’s place. He is about to start the engine when J comes out and walks down the alley not caring that she is bumping into people. TH follows her. She knocks over a fruit stand and TH picks up the fruit and apologizes to the lady for J’s sake. J walks over to some rice cake and sees the one she ate with the ajumma. She starts to eat one and remembers how the saleslady at the outdoor market had said “how could the mom and daughter look so alike” to J and the ajumma. J drops the rice cake and keeps walking. TH goes over and apologizes to the saleslady and pays for it. J crosses a street without looking while the crosswalk light is red and TH breathes a sigh of relief cuz she didn’t get run over. He follows her from the opposite sidewalk.
She goes down some alley so he crosses and follows her. she suddenly disappears from view. He runs over looking for her. J suddenly steps behind him.
J asks: are you a stalker ajussi? Why are you following me around? He turns to face her. J: I asked why are you following me around. TH: did you eat? J: why are you curious about that ajussi? Are you worried about me? Or did ajumma send you. did she tell you to go and see how I am? (she asked this sarcastically) Is she even worried about me a little bit. TH: no that isn’t it. J: if it’s not that then why are you following me around- I told you not to come find me again- I said even if we meet on the streets act like we don’t know each other – go and don’t follow me again. He watches her walk off.
And follows after her- quickly taking off his coat and drapes it over her shoulder saying “wear it- it’s cold.” She knocks it off and he puts it back on her again. TH: I said wear it. She takes the coat off and throws it at him. J:are you playing around with me ajussi? Why are you like this? I said I don’t want to see you anymore. Seeing you ajussi – I don’t like it at all. I don’t want to see you! TH grabs her arm and yells: listen to me (obey) and wear it (the coat) before you go! TH speaks more calmly and softens his tone: even though you don’t want to see me – now I want to see you- I can’t do anything at all cuz I am worried about you – I wonder if you are eating – sleeping well – like a while ago, if you aren’t going to be in danger from walking in a daze – Baek JE – I think I like you.
The whole time she was looking down as he spoke those last lines, but now she finally looks at him.
This is like the best love story in a drama in recent times. I love how TH and J’s relationship seems to be seesawing between their emotions for each other. Last week it was tipping with the weight of J’s affections for TH and now we finally have movement from TH’s side. He finally stood up a little bit and now it’s going to be more even. I just know he is going to do everything it takes to win her back and I am just wondering how many episodes that will take. Judging from the look on J’s face, quick acceptance is not realistic at this point since she is still raw from the open wound the mom already gave her. There is nothing left in J’s heart right now except for feeling betrayed. For TH’s declaration to have any effect, he is going to have to clear away a lot of mistrust for his words to have the desired impact. But how perfect would it be if TH’s words tonight start to chip away at the wall of cynicism J has put up to protect herself. As far as the first blow goes, this one had perfect aim and there is no way his words didn’t make her knees go weak even a little bit.
* if E26 is THIS good – how much better can it get when J gets over her anger? Can you just imagine? It’s so hard not to press replay on that last scene and move on with the rest of the translations -this drama is really doing a number on my head – can’t focus at all just cuz of that last line. if he ever gets around to saying “I love you” somewhere down the line – kiss translations for that night goodbye. 🙂
When it comes to this drama, it sort of scares me how much I love it. Is it cuz it’s 50 episodes that there is so much to love or is this drama really this amazing? I just can’t remember the last time I cared this much about each and every episode. Tonight it feels like hearts were broken left and right, a married couple found a moment of bliss, and another “pair” has me frowning in confusion right along with TH cuz I just don’t get that guy –what is his deal? I can’t believe KJ is being so upfront about his intention with TH. On the one hand it cracks me up watching TH squirm from discomfort and on the other hand, I am curious where KJ thinks all the flirting is headed. How great would it be if KJ was the impetus that drove TH literally into J’s arms– just to prove to KJ which team TH bats for. Before that, TH has a major hurdle to cross and admit to himself that he has feelings for J. It doesnt hurt that he keeps looking up at J’s window like this so wistfully – like he doesnt even realize he is longing for her. Once he gets why he keeps coming back to her, it would be great if he could be open about it, but that is just asking too much from this guy. At this point, not sure if she is even going to want to listen much less care anymore. Why must there be heartbreak before it even gets started? Eagerly counting down the hours till Sunday night….
Daebak of epic proportions – omg – speechless. Last week was nothing compared to this. *E26 Preview on the bottom
Before you read tonight’s recap – to ease into it – just look how happy they used to be 🙂
Starts from when YS grabbed the mom’s purse and the contract falls out. Everyone looks at it but J is the only one who is really in shock. YS: what is this – isn’t this the contract. She picks it and opens it. It’s the contract – I found it J. it’s the contract- what did I say? I told you –that woman stole it. What I said was right. J looks from the contract to the ajumma’s face. YS: now will you believe what I said- now will you believe what I said about that woman stealing it. She says how she will report them all– how could you steal your friend’s daughter’s contract. it wasn’t enough you stole it – you chase away the kid and make her set up tent in the yard to live and suffer. J is shocked and looks at the mom: was it you ajumma? you really did it? You didn’t right? Say one word that you didnt – please say you didn’t steal it ajumma. J cries. If you say you didn’t I will believe you – just please say one word you didn’t do that – hurry – ajumma. YS: what is there to ask- cant you believe even if you saw it with your own eyes? you ended up like this (tricked) cuz you trusted people to easily and acted careless- let’s go – for today cuz of your condition it would be better for you to leave this house. YS tells them she is taking J and going for today but will be back again when YS has regained her composure and will not leave them alone. how could you people do this? let’s go. she leads J away. J looks at the mom before she leaves
Outside the house, YS puts J into a waiting cab. YS tells the driver to go to seoul.
TB hears about J’s step mom and says you should have told me sooner and he will come right now. TB calls SY and says he will leave work first -cuz he has to go home for a short time. SY: wait dont hang up – why home again? TB: something happened. SY: of course that must be it – would you go if there was nothing going on -what is going on – why? you cant tell me again? TB: yes I dont want to tell you -I will be late so don’t wait up and sleep- hang up. SY calms herself down
The family cleans up the mess. TB comes home and asks if it was this serious. how many guys searched to cause this much mess. TP waves him away (meaning dont ask) TB goes over and tells the mom he came and asks where the dad is. He goes in and asks if GM is ok and “you werent hurt right?” she mutters she isnt hurt and that contract caused this mess again -how many times is this – and that contract she is sick of finally left this house and they wont have to go thru this again. she mutters how it bugs her about how it ended ( referring to that whole thing with J)
TB goes into the room and asks TH “what happened – heard mom didn’t get to return the contract to J and was found out. Is that true? How was she found out/caught? It couldn’t have been cuz the step mom went thru the wardrobe and discovered it-mom took the contract to give it back to J and went out and that was why she called J out to eat lunch together. It’s so frustrating – talk. How did she end up getting caught? TH suddenly gets up and goes outside. TB calls out his name and follows him out to the living room.
TH looks for the mom. TH: why did you do that mom– why didn’t you return the contract sooner to J and had it with you? during that time you could have given it back to her many times and still have time left. did you by any chance get greedy for the farm at the last moment and kept stalling and ended up getting found out by J like that? The dad comes over asking what TH means by that. TH asks the mom: it was so long ago when you went out to eat lunch –during that time why did you have that contract and not return it? Dad: this punk – why are you like this suddenly? Who isnt upset about what happened. TH yells at the mom: why didn’t you give it back? Why did you give the kid a scar/pain in that manner that you cant take back? Dad: this punk – ya hwang TH! GM comes over and asks what is going on. TH ignores them and yells at the mom: why did you steal the contract? Why?! The mom just cries looking at him and he storms out of the house. TS calls out TH’s name. GM asks why TH is like that suddenly. The dad tells TB to go out and bring TH back in –why is he like that suddenly. but the mom says leave him alone-he must have done that cuz he was upset since he doesn’t have the temperament to act like that-leave him alone. The dad tells TB to bring TH back. TB says he will go out and talk to him
TH is outside taking deep breaths. TB asks why he did that suddenly when it’s not like him. In this situation you think mom would get greedy about the farm -even if you were mad, how could you say that? it’s not like you are a guy who gets angry without a reason. Do you like J by any chance – is that why you are like this? TH gives him a look. TB: since you aren’t saying “it’s not that” then it must be correct. TH: it’s not that. TB: it’s not? Can you swear on it? TH yells defensively: I said it’s not so it’s not. TB: then why get this angry and get angry at mom like that a while ago. TH yells back: how can I not get angry? Look what mom did to Baek JE. Do you know what kind of expression that kid went away with? TB: it is correct that you like her. TH: I said I don’t. TB: aigoo – looks like you might punch me if I keep pushing it. One time you said to me – “are you doing this cuz I am not TP?” can I say that back to you today? Like today whenever you refuse to talk about how you feel –do you know how hurt I am? I think “I wonder if you are like this cuz I am not your real brother.” TH looks at TB and says apologetically: hyung – that’s not it. That’s not it. *It’s just that it hurts, physically. (TH puts a hand by his heart) it’s just I got angry cuz I feel sorry and bad for her. TB makes a remark about TH not being able to recognize his feelings. That means you like her you punk. TH: I said that’s not it – it’s not. TB: what do you mean it’s not. TH: it really isn’t –I am Hwang Tae Hee, a member of **Mensa. You think I wouldn’t even know my own feelings. (TB laughs and goes along with it) TB: TB: Alright, alright, Mensa member Hwang Tae Hee. It’s not love. Alright?! But if it still hurts there (at the end of the Myeong-chi-keut) and angers you–go find her – go find her and no matter what protect her till she stops being mad – no matter what. TB lightly taps him on the arm and goes back inside
* Yoonni clarified his exact words : “TH said “It’s only that my 명치끝 hurts” (Myeong-chi-keut).
명치 means celiac plexus and 끝 means end. The celiac plexus is an uncommonly known part of the body and the use of “end” with celiac plexus is used only on Korean to really emphasize the pain in that area. This phrase can be used literally (anatomically) but I think TH is using it metaphorically. I asked my friend about this and she said its really hard to explain in English. It’s not an expression that is used often and it is used mostly by men. People use to this express that they sympathy/empathy/pity/and a whole other mix of emotions for that person. The expression is used also when someone misses someone.”
**Yoonni also noted: Mensa is an international high IQ society. According to Wiki “Mensa’s only requirement for membership is that one score at or above the 98th percentile on certain standardised IQ or other approved intelligence tests, such as the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scales. Because different tests are scaled differently, it is not meaningful to compare raw scores between tests, only percentiles. For example, the minimum accepted score on the Stanford-Binet is 132, while for the Cattell it is 148. But most IQ tests are designed to yield a mean score of 100 with a standard deviation of 15; the 98th-percentile score under these conditions is 130.82.”
J is in YS’s room and YS brings food. J just sits there still in shock. YS says –let’s eat dinner – if I knew you were coming I would have gone grocery shopping in advance. Since it’s too late today I just prepared something simple. Eat a little bit -first thing tm I will go grocery shopping – what do you want to eat? Should I make your favorite spicy squid? I said eat a little bit – that is not something you should feel so hurt about with your mouth shut tight like that. cuz of those people without any conscience-why should you feel hurt and starve. How long did you live in that tent at that home? The neighbors said that woman used you to work on the farm – is that true? Did you really raise ducks and work in the pear orchard? How could you end up doing that kind of work when you lived being so pampered(meaning J isnt used to hard labor). Let’s sell off the farm right away. you must be sick and tired of the farm now. I will take care of selling the farm so you don’t have to worry about anything. Cuz of your dad’s debts- you know that everything that is in his name ends up repossessed right? That’s why –about the farm – the only solution is to sell it. J just sits there. YS: I said to eat a little.
SY goes to her house and the dad welcomes her and asks why she came alone-where is TB. SY says TB will be late cuz of work at the office. SY: did you have dinner? Dad: of course when it’s this late. You haven’t eaten yet? SY: no I ate-where is mom? dad: she is talking to your aunt upstairs. Cuz your aunt is being stubborn and insisting on opening that store. Come and sit down why are you standing there like that? SY: no I was just dropping by after work. I’ll be going.
Suddenly her mom comes over with Y’s suitcase and orders the dad to reserve a flight for the earliest plane tm morning. Hurry. Y: just please believe in me once. Mom: talking to you doesn’t work –there is no other way than this to stop you. Y: I said this time I can do well. I said I would get it done well properly (this time). The mom says how-with what skills and lists everything that is wrong with the failing store again (no customers- no profit-bad location-and Y doesn’t have any experience with outdoor stuff). Y explains how that is cuz people don’t know about the location of the store yet. After she opens the store for two months if she advertizes and lets people know but the mom cuts her off and yells “with what skills are you going to raise awareness? The mom to the dad: what are you doing? I told you to call and make reservations. SY screams out: stop it mom! it’s aunt’s life –is aunt a 3 year old kid? You need to know how much to have interest cuz of your love –doing it this much is (overbearing? not sure of this word) The mom is stunned and says SY’s name. SY: she said she wouldn’t go – aunt insists on doing it. Cuz you are like this mom isnt it why you keep butting heads with TB? The person who is receiving your over attention cant breathe (they feel suffocated/stifled) and feels burdened how can you come on so strong and be so overbearing. (SY used more mean adjectives) the mom is speechless from shock. The dad says SY’s name. Y says to her: SY- I’m not feeling suffocated –it’s not as bad as that. SY turns on her too. SY: you too aunt –are you mentally a 7 yr old? A person needs to know what they can do and cant do – Don’t you know for your age you are a fool-if you feel so determined to do that you should have been specific about your vision to mom and researched it enough. Even me as your niece when you say you are going to do something – I worry this time how much you are going to be taken for – so how do you think mom feels? Doesn’t it occur to you aunt that mom is slowly changing into someone hysterical cuz of you? Y: SY ah. Mom: cha SY- why are you like that? Did something happen to you? SY: no I will be going. She starts to walk off but the mom holds her and asks: I asked why you are like this. Did you fight with TB again? SY: do you think we always fight? We didn’t fight – he is so good to me. He is so good to me I am moved to tears. The mom is shocked cuz SY yelled in front of her. SY: this isnt me – cuz of my pregnancy and the hormones I am like this – this isnt Cha SY. So you have to understand. I will be going. Mom: omo omo that girl. The dad says to the mom: she is just like you- when you were pregnant with SY-you did that. The mom swings around and glares at him-giving him the evil eye.
The dad asks the mom: why weren’t you able to give her the contract and had it with you? the mom says she was thinking that exact same thing a hundred times over. Why did I delay/hesitate and have it with me- didn’t need to look around the market – have noodles- didn’t need any of that – as soon as I saw the kid I should have held out the contract and started with that – I cant forget how J looked at me at that last moment – how shocked and incredulous she must have felt – when she trusted me so – when she even gave me that new dishwasher – how betrayed she must have felt-she would have wanted to die.
TH looks at his duck pendant. He tries calling J but her phone is turned off. He gets up and paces and remembers where he ran into J before. And how she had told him she had gone to meet her step mom there.
TH goes there and finds out YS came in with a girl a while ago. He looks up at the window with the light on. TH waits outside all night in his car. J is still sitting there not sleeping. TH wakes up in the morning and looks up at her room and finally leaves.
*doesnt have feelings for her my foot 🙂
Gm asks why everyone is like this during breakfast. Everyone is sad looking. GM asks if they sit slouched like that will the food go down properly. The mom says sorry to her. The dad says after he eats, he is going to J’s school to talk to her about the farm problem and get it settled. TP says he wonders if J went to school and that he wants to go with the dad but starting from today he has to start his new job. GM: go to work? TP: yes I got hired. Mom and GM – I am the manager for an outdoor apparel/hiking store. GM is surprised and asks if it’s for real and says they’ve waited a long time to hear this. TP: yes I really got hired. TS says: it’s not a part time job and a real job? If it’s as manager it doesn’t sound like a part time job. TP says: I said it’s not –they acknowledged my business talent/ability so I ended my interview and everything and was formally hired. Cuz of you hyung and mom causing trouble – I thought at least I should come to my senses and made up my mind. Dad: ya – aside from your mom – what do you mean cuz of hyung – which hyung caused trouble? TP: no – that’s cuz younger hyung caused trouble and ended up getting married. *TP was actually referring to TS and covered it up last minute.
SY comes out still in her PJs. TB is about to leave and SY asks him to wait ten minutes for her to get ready and go together but he says he might have to stop by somewhere first and says he will go ahead of her.
TB asks his coworker if he has a girl friend and finds out he doesn’t – since the guy isnt getting married could he lend TB $20,000. SY overhears that conversation. The guy says he doesn’t have that kind of money.
TB goes by himself and remembers how the dad said they have to hurry and move since this happened. He calls someone else he knows and SY watches him ask to meet the person (to ask for money again she guesses)
SY calls her mom and asks where she is and asks her mom for a favor
The dad goes to J’s workshop at school. Her friend wonders why J turned off her phone and didn’t show up again. The dad says he came to meet J but doesn’t see her around and they say how J didn’t come to school today and they were calling her just now
The dad calls TH and says he is at J’s school-but she didn’t come to school and her phone is still turned off and asks if TH could tell him J’s step mom’s address. TH: the step mom’s address? Yes I know it. I want to take you but….he looks over at the other officers busy at work interrogating people. TH: but it’s sort of hard to get out of work now. Dad: just tell me where it is and I will go there. there is no way to know for sure if J is there. TH: the location is… someone tells TH to keep it quiet so TH says into the phone: dad go with me. I will call you right back. TH goes over to D and says he is stepping out and to take care of the guy TH was questioning.
TH pulls up with the dad. dad: you are saying J is here? TH: yes – Jung YS shi lives here. dad:It’s a good thing you are here or else I wouldn’t have been able to find J. when I ask what room the office will probably tell me right? TH: it’s room 306. Dad should I go up with you? dad: no I will meet her alone- I will be back.
J is still sitting there. the dad knocks. J opens the door. Dad: J ah did you eat- did you get some sleep? Ajussi and ajumma committed a wrong to you that deserves death. No matter what I say I know you wont be able to forgive. but ajumma was going to give you back the contract –she also made up her mind to give back the farm to you too – that is why she asked you to come out and eat lunch – she had the contract in her purse and went out and it ended up like this – I just want you to know that at least -ajumma didn’t want to trick you all the way till the end. J: so – if you say that what has changed – ajumma stole my contract and chased me away – deceiving me for that long time – does all of that go away like it didn’t happen. She shuts the door on him. Through the door, the dad says: J – open the door for a minute. We didn’t get to talk about the farm yet. J- I will do as you want for the farm – If you want me to sell it I will sell it. YS asks: what are you doing now? How could you come here? You think our J wants to see your family’s face now? Anyway since you came here – about the problem with the farm. The dad cuts her off and says: I said it last time too but – I have no desire to discuss the farm problem with you. YS: I am J’s guardian. Also the farm problem J left it up to me. The dad just leaves. YS calls out: look here. but he left anyway
the dad comes out. TH asks : were you not able to meet her? is she not here. the dad says: I met her and she is here. let’s go and talk on the way. the dad gets a call from SY to meet today. TH looks up at J’s window
TS goes to MS and says sorry –for the past few days something big happened at the house and he wasn’t able to call her much. She tells him to sit and talk. TS: where is N? MS: in the room. TS says sorry again and promises to drop by starting from tm before and after work. MS: no – you don’t need to do that – take N with you now. TS: what? She say she has to go to work starting from tm so she can no longer watch N. cuz they are done working on the restaurant ( it was being renovated) TS: then what do I do. What do I do? MS: why are you asking me that- from the beginning I didn’t take care of N cuz of you – in one day N had to be separated from his mother and was sent to this foreign land and I felt so bad for him so I thought of N and took care of him for a few more days – if I was thinking of you I would never have taken care of N. TS: thank you – I sincerely thank you. MS: that’s why today you need to take him. Like you promised a few days has passed. For N’s sake you shouldn’t push it back anymore. TS: I cant MS – I really cant right now. I cant explain it to you why but at home there is something shocking going on. MS – since you took care of him – please take care of him for a few more days. I will ask you like this as a favor. Huh MS? MS: Hwang TS – first I don’t know why I have to do that – second is this a problem you can resolve just by hanging in there for a few days? Come to your senses – you are now a father of a kid – don’t just think of yourself and think of N too – the kid came to Korea to see you – do you think he came to korea to live in someone else’s home feeling concerned about what others think like this. TS: you sure can speak easily –cuz it’s happening to someone else – don’t speak so easily –if it was you – one day suddenly –someone you never heard of or saw – to a kid who just dropped out of the sky you think you will have that kind of feeling? when I think I will die cuz of him. If you don’t know how that feels – don’t speak so easily. Can you even imagine how I feel right now? MS: I know-more than anyone in this world – I know that feeling better. TS: what? MS: that’s how I was entrusted with my H. my H is not my daughter –one day suddenly – like she was dropped from the sky – she is my older sister’s daughter. TS: what? MS: I will bring N so wait. TS is genuinely shocked.
MS goes in the room and tells the kid – you came to korea to live with your dad so I don’t think you should keep staying at ajumma’s home – You understand right? N nods. MS: since it’s right next door – You can come over and play anytime. Ok? He nods. MS: then should we go? N – if by chance later – if someone teases you like H did – don’t hit like last time –don’t hit and say clearly “I am not a person from Africa – I am Korean. You say that ok? N: yes. He manages a smile for her.
The dad meets with SY. She asks if nothing much happened. Dad: yes – let’s sit first. Dad: what is going on suddenly – did something happen with TB? SY: no that’s not it – father did something happen at home? Dad: that – I think we have to move. TB didn’t tell you huh? SY: yes. He doesn’t talk about that. Dad: he did that since you just got married and it might be complicated for you. don’t feel too hurt. SY: yes I sort of guessed what’s going on – I heard TB talking with you. that’s why father…she gets out the envelope and says she wants to do something as his daughter in law. She gives him the envelope with money. dad: what is this? SY: please add it to your moving expenses. Cuz I want to do something. He asks if TB knows. She says TB doesn’t know and wants the dad to keep it a secret from him. He thanks her and gives it back saying he cant accept-put it back in your purse. But she asks him to accept it cuz she is his daughter in law and hasn’t done anything properly as his daughter in law-always felt sorry for not going to see them often so she wants to repay them this way at least. It’s extra money that I have and I don’t need it right away. Please accept it father. Also TB keeps his mouth shut and doesn’t talk about it much but he looked like he was having a hard time these days. I want to take away his burden even a little bit so please accept it father.
TB meets with the guy. The guy says so it was about money. I thought it was strange when you suddenly said let’s meet. I don’t have any money now. He says let’s get together next time and leaves.
TB gets a call from the dad. TB:what? You got the $20,000? How? dad says thankfully someone had extra money and lent it to him. TB is relieved-that’s really good
TB remembers how the dad asked – cuz you were busy trying to get the money – you didn’t get to pay attention to SY did you? pay more attention to her. TB calls SY: where are you? should we eat lunch together?
SY goes to meet TB and he pulls out her chair and helps her sit. She isnt smiling. SY: I thought you would be busy today – I was surprised to get your call. TB: I was busy for a few days cuz of my family problem but a little of it got settled. SY: it did? TB: for the past few days – I was abrupt/cold and abrasive wasn’t I? I was too busy cuz of my family problem. I’m like that a little. When I become engrosses in something I neglect other things. I will apologize – it’s ok if you don’ get it but please don’t misunderstand. SY: can you still not talk about it? What that family problem is. TB: I don’t want to say – if it was something I could reveal I would have revealed it. So I hope you wont ask anymore. My family problem – it’s not just to you but I wouldn’t have told anyone. SY: I am still not family yet? TB: of course – to me you are a girl-while we live together- I wish you could be a girl to me. (pretty sure he meant that as a compliment) He says how she seems to like it so that is why he made reservations here at a buffet. Is that ok? she asks when she said that she liked buffets. TB: you didn’t say it with words but you showed me with actions many times. You ate up all the food. You wont run out of food here so eat as much as you want. SY: am I eating it? The baby is eating it. TB: of course. Sit and wait and I will bring the food. SY calls out for him to get a lot of certain food so he says he will.
People are shocked to see how much food TB brought to the table. TB tells her to eat up. She asks: what is all this – is someone going out for wrestling? Why did you bring so much? TB says from watching her eat all those times he brought everything she liked. SY: how can I eat all this. Am I a pig? She eats all of it. He tells her to drink so she wont get indigestion. She drinks and burps. She says sorry but he says it’s ok – he understands cuz she said it’s difficult to control her body sounds during pregnancy. SY: thank you for understanding. He asks her to be careful at the office instead cuz these days she doesn’t pay attention to where she is and whatever sounds that come from top (burp) or bottom (fart), she lets it out anytime. as someone who lives with her, it’s a little embarrassing. SY: you did. TB adds if she cant control it (hold it in) she should run outside and leave it to him to explain. SY: I can do that. Ok I will run out. She suddenly stops drinking so he asks if he should get her something warm to drink but she suddenly runs out saying “I will go out first” (cuz she had to fart) TB calls out her name but gets why she left and laughs.
He goes outside and smiles and asks if she feels better (as in refreshed cuz she was able to do that) SY is embarrassed and just takes her purse from him and walks off. A guy on a bike goes by her too fast so SY screams and TB hugs her and protects her. TB yells at the guy and mutters he should maneuver correctly. TB is still holding her and asks if she is ok. She is flustered by the close contact. He tells her to watch where she walks. She nods and says yes.
They see a bunch of kids walk by and smile at each other.
TH is eating lunch alone and talking with D over the phone. TH tells D “did you find out the location of the warehouse? Ok- let’s leave after ten minutes.” KJ sits down and asks TH: you must love spicy pork officer Hwang. He offers to give TH some more of his. TH ignores his remark and keeps eating. KJ makes a comment about the cafeteria’s ambience. KJ: so the cafeteria is like this – do you use it often? TH starts to say “look” and KJ interrupts and says “my name is Kim Jae – you didn’t forget right? I am a producer for Gu (Nine) films-you can call me Kim PD” TH: yes KJ shi- I will introduce you to another officer to talk to (for the interview) it will be better for you to talk to that person. But KJ says he only wants to talk to TH –the person I want to talk to is hwang TH. TH: is there a reason it has to be me? KJ: cuz I like you. TH: do you know me? KJ: I want to get to know you. I tend to like good looking guys. TH frowns and gets up to leave very quickly as KJ starts to eat. KJ calls out: what is your next schedule? arent you going on a stakeout or something?
TH is on a stakeout with D. KJ is in the back making noise eating snacks. KJ says it’s cuz he didn’t get to eat lunch properly a while ago. KJ asks D: you said your name was officer Song. Should I give you one? D thanks him and takes the choco pie. KJ offers one to TH. TH says no thanks. D explains how TH doesn’t like sweet things. KJ mutters quietly: he is the opposite of me. D and TH both heard that. KJ asks what TH likes to eat-spicy things like spicy squid? Do you have anything you like in particular? since you aren’t saying it’s making me more curious. D starts to answer what TH likes so TH tells D to focus on the stakeout. KJ looks at TH’s hair and says how nice and shiny TH’s hair is-he must get it taken care of (as in salon treatments) and reaches out asking to touch it once. But TH flinches away and gives KJ a warning look. D smirks. KJ stares at TH thru the rear view mirror. TH stares at him thru the rear view mirror too. KJ: now I thought of it – I was wondering who you resembled but you resemble Kang dong won –people will believe it if you say you are twins. You hear that often don’t you? TH blows out his cheeks. KJ continues: which parent do you resemble? Is your mom beautiful? TH tells KJ to stop cuz it’s interfering with the stakeout. KJ: ok sorry. But is someone going to come? It’s quiet and you cant even see an ant. he gets a call and says he will go and take the call and come back. He goes outside. D says KJ shouldn’t go out but he already left.
D tells TH: hyung be careful –It doesn’t feel right – D bursts out laughing- I think he is interested in you hyung. Just look at how he stares at you-he isnt kidding around. TH: ya! TH starts the engine. D: what about Kim PD? TH drives off and leaves KJ behind. KJ runs after him yelling wait a minute.
TH’s car has to stop and KJ catches up to them. D says to TH that KJ must have chased them all the way. KJ runs up to the window and asks if the suspect showed up –where is he? (KJ thinks TH drove off in pursuit of the suspect- LOL )
* I was totally joking around last week, but it turns out I was correct about KJ-who knew a joking comment would turn into this 🙂
YS complains cuz J keeps closing the curtains and YS opens them again. YS: you heard a while ago too right? When we (the dad and her) talked about the farm problem. J – don’t we need to settle the problem with the farm first? Of course the way you feel now you probably don’t want to face that family but we cant keep living so pitifully in this koshiwon (boarding place). J suddenly gets up and leaves. YS asks where J is going. J goes out and grabs a cab
The mom is not well so GM asks if she is sick. The mom says no – she just got dizzy suddenly. GM says how pale the mom’s face is and her lips are dry –she says the mom has an illness (sick from heartache) Go in and lie down. Mom: no it’s ok – what did I do that was good to go lie down. J suddenly comes in.
J says all this with a cold sarcastic tone while the mom cries. J:have you been well ajumma? it’s only been a day since I saw you but like it’s been a long time – it’s good to see you. mom: JE ah. J: I came to pack my belongings. My belongings upstairs is still there as is right? Mom: of course it’s still there as is. J: it is? What made you leave it alone this time? when you always used to drag my suitcase and throw my stuff outside. Ah that was before the contract was found wasn’t it. How were you last night? Did you sleep well? I didn’t sleep a wink. I kept remembering everything that happened –but the more I remembered – why did each memory stab me in the heart. what I remembered first was -after you stole my contract –what you said to me as you chased me out. You said you would swear on the heavens –that you didn’t even get to look at the contract from when you were born – that there is no way it disappeared in this home – that I had never even brought it into the home – and then you packed my suitcase and chased me out the door. The second one (memory) was what happened when I set up the tent in the yard –as soon as you saw me you tried to throw my tent – and kicked the cooking pot I was eating ramen from – they say you shouldn’t bother a dog even when its eating but I was treated less than a dog. Then that nightmare with the water. That was the first time I knew – that when you get sprayed with water that it hurts that much. That’s right I got hit a lot cuz I ate a few pieces of pancake during Chusok. I almost forgot that. There really is a lot – more than I can count. It’s as much as stars in a night sky. What should I do to you ajumma? Should I do the same thing and make you stand in the yard and start with spraying you with water? Or should we do it cleanly and let you get punished lawfully and hand you over to the police? Wait – the 3rd son in this house is a police officer –should I hand you over to your son? What I couldn’t understand the most was –I thought about it all night and thought about it again- even then I couldn’t understand –how could you look me in the eyes and look at my face and be able to smile? How could you smile with me every day while we worked on the farm –raise ducks – hold hands and run away from chong Mi sook and drink in the attic room being so close. J wipes her tears and says to the GM. What you said GM is correct –ajumma acts better than an academy winning female actress. I was totally deceived. J turns back to the mom. J: I didn’t even know you were the culprit –I didn’t know you were the culprit that stole my contract –just cuz you touched my cold stomach – I said those things. “Ajumma cant we just be mom and daughter?” the mom cries and closes her eyes from the pain of having those words thrown back at her. J: I take that back. I take back saying that – after being born in this world – being that stupid and humiliated – regretting so much saying that – it will never happen again. The mom cries and looks at J.
my heart literally ached thru this last scene and cried right along with both of them. I want J to forgive the mom and make up, but I guess they have to do this to fill up the rest of the episodes. They were so cute together – will miss those days.
they show past clips of the mom and J together- all their happy moments
SY is surprised to see N at the house. the dad asks who N is.
N is at Y’s store with Y and SY’s parents show up and the mom ask who N is and why is he clinging to you (cuz N hid behind Y’s back). Y doesn’t know what to say.
Noodles gets caught inside the home. TP blocks N. the dad asks who N is. TP: your grandson. The dad is about to hit TP but TP yells out “stop dad – it’s not me” and TS stands up and says N is his son so the dad attacks TS and knocks him down to beat him up. mom:how could you TS?
J tells the family to sell the farm-today – right away. the dad agrees to do that
When she leaves the mom calls out “wait a minute” and holds onto J. J yells at the mom “dont touch me.” Mom: I am sorry – she tries to give J the red scarf but J throws it down and stomps on it saying “thanks for the muffler”. J walks away. The mom cries as she hugs the scarf
J asks TH: how long did you know? why didnt you tell me? TH: I am sorry. J: what are you sorry for? I liked you ajussi –starting from one day – my heart kept thumping every time I saw you ajussi – after my dad – you were the only man that I could trust and rely on (valued). She throws the duck pendant away and tells TH – “that’s enough now – dont ever come find me again.”
TH leaves her food and coffee by her door. he ties her shoelaces too. J opens the door and finds the coffee and food. (pretty sure this scene came after she told him she didnt want to see him again- if you look at the expression on his face – he seems to have realized he likes her at this point cuz he looks so sad)
*omg I about died during the preview alone – when J admitted to him that she liked him. I never thought she would own up to it, but now he knows. what he will do with that info – that is the question of the day and it is making me have a freaking heart attack till tm night.
also why did people say KJ was going to be a love interest for J when the guy is clearly into TH? why would KJ want to kiss J when he only has eyes for TH? in the car when he asked TH if he could touch TH’s hair – omg I was DYING 🙂
