Alice in Cheongdam-dong: E7-E16

130127 청담동 앨리스 E16 마지막회 HDTV 720p x264 aac mp4-Random[02-08-55]

I’m not quite sure what the lesson is that we should be taking away from this drama. Fairytale endings have always existed in drama land, but I thought they would make their point in a more convincing way. SK set out to get into Cheongdam-dong and made it, with a slight detour and a lot of moments clashing with her conscience.  If you ask me, the people who really learned valuable lessons are SJ, YJ, and Tommy. They no longer saw their privileged lives as something to take for granted and the one person who taught them that was SK. In a sense, SK went into Cheongdam-dong to change her life, but ended up affecting other people’s lives. Her original intent and methods of getting in might have been wrong, but somewhere in the middle of it, she realized what needs to matter more than just material wealth. Being able to love someone despite their faults and lack of trust feeds the soul way more than any luxurious estate. In a way, it’s a good thing that she tried to go into this world cuz in the process she rescued her prince. How’s that for flipping a fairytale on its head.

I love the look in her eyes as he is about to kiss her for real this time – SK is staring at him with all the love in the world.

Written before it aired: Based on what happened last night, I think it’s safe to say SJ is going to realize he did get a hand up during his difficult time in Paris. It sort of validates SK’s point so SJ will no longer have anything concrete to stand on. I don’t blame him for not guessing his father cuz it is very uncharacteristic of his father to do such a thing.  What SJ didn’t factor in was that pride has no place when it’s a father wanting to protect his son from the hardships in life. No matter how much they fought, there was no way his father was going to stand by and continue to watch his son starve and live in misery. To tell the truth, I don’t remember anything about Alice in wonderland cuz it has never been a favorite of mine. It sort of scared me as a kid just imagining her falling down that hole. It seemed too traumatic a story for little kids if you ask me. But that story does fit into this drama pretty well in the sense that SK came into this Cheongdam-dong world thinking all her problems would magically disappear and she would get her happily ever after. She had to endure that scary fall down the dark hole and every terrible thing she had to go through to get to this place is the whole falling part. It sort of seems like the first time a character in a fairytale had to clash with so many people, including her prince charming, to earn her happily ever after. Her troubles are coming to an end, but I bet living with someone like SJ for the rest of her life is going to be a whole different adventure she never counted on since he requires so much attention and affection. I guess it’s just the price you pay for love.

Just cuz I didn’t write separate posts for this show doesn’t mean I didn’t like it enough. If anything my recaps just got more and more thorough each week to prove that I did. The main reason was time constraint cuz it’s hard to recap two things on the same night like on Sundays when 1n2d is on too. I would like to thank everyone who left comments to encourage me. This was all done for you.

SK says it’s not obvious to SJ. also I think I see the ending now. What was the ending of alice in wonderland. Tommy wonders what it was. His sec comes in so he asks her. she doesn’t know

YJ: who do you think it was – it’s obvious. SJ: who is it?

SK: dream

YJ:  your father

SK: wakes from the dream

SJ: my father? YJ: if it was me I would suspect him first. SJ: why? YJ: really didnt think about even once. SJ: why would I suspect him. YJ: cuz you are a chaebol’s son. you think your father would leave it alone for you to live at rock bottom? SJ: so he had my back. you think my father is someone who would do that – he is the one who made me sign the contract to give up my inheritance. YJ: you really didnt think about it once. it might not be him. but if that happened, isnt it obvious you should have suspected your father first. that’s how you and I are different. you can accept something like that naturally with no suspicions. but people like me have fears first-like “why did something like this happen to me.” SJ remembers what SK said -you believe in good fortune, butI am someone who cant believe so easily in good fortune.

YJ goes out and looks up at her home and the other homes in that area and walks away

SJ sits there and remembers what he told his father. SJ: You thought I couldn’t do anything without you didn’t you father. Cha: you think you succeeded in your revenge? SJ tries to call but doesn’t. he goes and gets a card for the gallery

SJ goes to the gallery and asks to meet Carrey Park, but that person isnt in. SJ says he wants to  confirm something about the paysage (his painting). she tells him the painting was sold a few days ago. the person who donated it bought it back. We didn’t know but it belonged to his son

SJ goes to his dad’s office and asks where he is and hears cha just left. He looks everywhere for his painting. He finally finds it hanging on a wall. He stares at it in shock. SJ remembers telling SK that he was grateful to this person cuz he was able to come all this way. Then how SK said that painting – that good fortune doesnt come just to anyone. then he remembers YJ saying would your father leave you alone to live on the bottom like that. and how he yelled that he came all this way with his own strength and SK saying it was cuz of his good fortune.

cha calls out his name. SJ: did you buy this painting. Cha: yes not too long ago I bought it. everyone who saw it said the drawing was good. SJ asks did you buy it anonymously back in 2008. Cha: you found that out too. What’s wrong. SJ: why? why did you do that– why buy it? why did you buy my painting.

SK looks at her door and remembers what SJ said – if you are poor – is all forgiven, if you are poor is it ok to use a person’s sincerity.

SJ asks: did you control/manipulate me- buying the painting without me knowing and supporting me to come all this way. cha: I just couldnt stand watching you live like a beggar so I bought one painting.  if I gave you money outright you wouldn’t have taken it. SJ: is this one painting? I came all this way cuz of this painting. In the end, I came all this way cuz of you. cha: how is that my doing. did I put you in artemis or make you the CEO? You did it all with your own strength. SJ: it was fun wasnt it? cha: what? SJ yells: watching me say how I was going to avenge you – was it fun? cha: why are you like this? SJ yells back: I ran away for ten years. cuz I wanted to live as CSJ – a person and not the royal group successor. without you -I wanted to live with my own strength and my own talent/ability. Cha: being born with this kind of father is your talent. being born with everything was your talent. others don’t have (wealth) and make a fuss so are you making a fuss cuz you have some (money). SJ: that good fortune I was born into – in the end it was that. I was someone who couldn’t do anything without you. cha: SK said that – that you came to be close to me – why else would a guy who wanted to do art gather experience. I wanted to get close to you not cuz I need a successor but as a father who couldn’t get to see his son. SJ walks away

SK is looking throug her box of stuff and finds her list – those ten things she wrote right after she found out who SJ really was. she gets a long text from YJ. YJ: If we didn’t meet again a few months ago how would we have been about now- would I have been living the way I have and you live the way you did. You might have lived the way you did, but not me. even if I didnt meet you,this would have happened to me. (she quotes her journal and what tommy said) I shouldnt have cowered, but I am going back now. (to the way she was in the past).

her words narrate this while she is riding down cheongdamdong street with her driver

YJ goes to meet MH. He asks did you decide – which side is it. YJ says you said I was worth millions but you aren’t worth that much to me – I want a divorce – I don’t want to be the wife of GN anymore

YJ goes out and greets the manager and says be well and leaves

YJ runs into IH. IH says you are lucky cuz you got a chance cuz CSJ is the opposing side of all people. YJ: you cant stand it that a deal worth millions is in my hands huh?  there is nothing great about how you people live. IH: I really dont like it (that the deal is in your hands) but what can I do -like you said it’s worth millions. YJ laughs: Go in and cheer up your brother cuz he just got divorced just now. IH is shocked

D arrives at SJ’s home and told cha not to worry – I just arrived I will take good care of him. D calls out for SJ and finds him in bed sleeping. D wakes him, but SJ says I am sleepy – I have to sleep. SJ remembers what cha said -being born with this kind of father is your talent. then what SK said-you used the luck you were born with

Cha asks if SJ still sleeping. Is it ok to keep letting him sleep. D says it is -leave him alone for now

Cha texts SK and asks for some help. She goes running

SJ is still sleeping. When he wakes up he imagines something. when he was a kid crying and his mom told him not to cry. She was comforting him and telling him not to cry. it’s ok. I wont forget you.

SK rings the bell and yells I am going in. he looks up at her. she turns the lights on and asks if he is ok. She sees all the wine and asks if he drank them all. You cant even drink alcohol. He asks why did you come. To rub it in and brag that everything you said was all correct. Or did D and father say I am going to die again. Go. He stands up so she back hugs him and says I came cuz I missed you.  I came here cuz I missed you so much. now I don’t know what painting is or whatever. I don’t know sec kim or CEO or any of it all. I just came now cuz I miss you so much. if you aren’t in front of me now I felt like I will die so I came. Without you – I cant. If this isnt love then what is love. he cries listening. SK: I love you. He turns around and faces her. she says it again – I love you. she hugs him. He hugs back

SJ was sleeping and dreamt that. he wakes up calling out her name. he looks around at the empty wine bottles. He says it was a dream. The door opens and SK comes in. he sees her standing there. she turns on the lights. He thinks –did Han SK really come? She comes over and asks if he is ok. He asks why did you come. Did you come to rub it in and brag- that everything you said was correct. She says I came to say goodbye.there is no other reason. He says didn’t we already say farewell. She says no I didn’t. I thought about it if I can prove my love or not to you. SJ: proof? SK: while we live, saying those obvious words “I will prove it to you”  I can do it. every day when our eyes meet, I can say I love you, but right now there is no way to prove it. that’s the conclusion. SJ thinks this is a nightmare. SK: now it’s up to you. I cant prove my love. whether you can accept me or not – you decide. look directly at reality and decide.  SJ: what reality. that you looked at my money and approached me -that I cant understand that kind of SK-and you still keep wanting me to accept that  – this reality? SK: yes. SJ: What if I cant accept. SK: there is no other way then. SJ: why isnt there –like you said – all you have to do is just prove your love. SK: how. He states the royal group shares, his father’s home cost, and how much his wealth comes out to and says earn millions then tell me you love me. if you do – then it will prove without a doubt that you aren’t after me just for my money. doesnt it? SK: ok. you are saying we should break up. it must mean it’s just up to here. be well. She leaves.

as SK walks out, SJ thinks – she left waking everything (meaning waking him up to reality) – even my last fantasy – all

Next day SK goes shopping at Tory Burch and tries on a nice outfit and wears it out

*throughout the whole series they literally filmed basically on one street going back and forth across that street, except for tommy’s office which is around the corner from where they normally film

AJ meets SK. AJ says back then if you said you would prove it somehow – would something be different. he probably wanted to hear that the most.  SK says then act like candy all my life? he was looking for a pure/innocent love and me pretending to be pure -it wouldnt have lasted very long.  is there a 100% pure love in the world. like SJ said –  love is everything/the whole package- that person’s looks, talent, heart, personality. Can you love just one. everything is included in love. why? are you different? AJ says you and I are different. What you said is all true. but unlike you I would never say those things aloud. everyone knows there is no love that is 100% pure. they know but don’t say anything and just live. I could never say that to Jae wook shi. maybe I could if we broke up. SK asks who is JW. Are you dating sec moon. AJ: it turned out that way. I couldn’t tell you cuz you were having a hard time. SK is happy for AJ and says it turned out well. congratulations. SK has to run and leaves

Moon gives SJ a report- an interview for 20 people but you just need to look at the first ten. he also says cha is here.

SJ goes in and meets with cha. SJ talks about the outlet contract, investments, and donations. Cha talks about the land they are going to get contracts for. cha: you acted like you would never see me for the rest of your life but you are meeting me like nothing is going on. SJ says  business is business. you arent the only one doing business. Cha: the word business is coming out of your mouth. heard you are doing well these days. I heard from your help that you are eating and sleeping well. SJ says I have an interview. let’s meet again when the contracts are finalized.

SK walks to Prism tower *cant believe she isnt wearing a coat in this weather. guess we are to assume the outfit cost too much so she couldnt afford one.

SJ is in a room and looks over the resumes. SJ sees the name SK. Moon says it’s a common name.  a girl comes in for an interview and her name is shin SK. SJ takes notice of her bag and clothes

SK is doing an interview elsewhere. she is asked if she studied abroad at a design school or had experiences abroad. SK: i dont have any

the other girl worked in the States after graduating college but took an extra year to do that

130127 청담동 앨리스 E16 마지막회 HDTV 720p x264 aac mp4-Random[02-06-36]

Before the girl leaves SJ looks over her resume and lists all the things that look good and asks why she couldnt get hired for two years after college. She says it was cuz she didnt have experience working abroad. he says she took 3 semesters off and had a lot of part time jobs – did you take those breaks to earn tuition. she says yes cuz of her financial situation at home she earned her tuition and went to college. He points out the cost of her outfit, clothes, and shoes – all total it’s worth 10,000. it’s worth two semester’s worth of tuition so isnt that too much. She explains how after doing interviews for 2 years she realized one thing – she needs these clothes to be respectful for interviews.cuz design companies care about what she is wearing and carrying cuz it reflects her talent.  It makes SJ think about what SK said – from head to toe- expensive clothes, bag, and shoes

*This is what I liked about this drama – he no longer sees just what is on paper – through SK, he learned what matters is someone’s character – how they dealt with their hard situations in life – that attitude of never giving up and learning what’s important to try to make it in this world. before SK he didn’t notice, but now he can appreciate that.

The woman lists what SK has done so far and says SK didn’t have experience abroad and only worked at one major company GN. SK: yes. the two interviewers look at each other and end the interview so SK speaks up and says I dont have the paperwork to prove it but I had experience working as a stylist. she shows her portfolio she made for SJ. there are photos of SJ. The woman says isnt he the CEO of artemis. SK says I worked as his personal stylist before. The man says SK was SJ’s fiancé. SK thinks in her head her marks just a minute ago were Ds and now they are going to be moved up to all As. (they changed from Bs and Ds to all As as she thinks that). SK thinks in her head: after breaking up with him, I really did end up using that person.

SJ thinks to himself: if I met Han SK in the past, what scores would I have given her.

SK walks out and tommy pulls up and calls out her name. then he opens the car door for her to get in

tommy asks if her interview went well. SK: yes. She asks if he still cant reach YJ cuz she doesnt take my calls either. tommy: yes. she is still like that.  He says I have something to show you. he hands her alice in wonderland book. He says you were wrong. You said the ending was her waking up from her dream. SK: it wasnt? tommy: I found out what the real ending was for the first time. SK: what is it? tommy: the older sister  who woke alice dreams again. But not totally dream. She had half her eyes closed. in her dream, she only half believes she came to wonderland. If she opens her eyes again, even though she knows it will change back to reality. SK says alice’s older sister must be a grown up. even though she knows it’s not -she half believes and lives. that seems like what grown ups do

below them SJ’s car drives by

Moon shows SJ a jewelry collection that was launched called “be my love” it was sold out as soon as it came out within a month and now it’s on back order. SJ remembers how he saw SK asking for the warranty card after she lost it when I woman comes in asking for a receipt

In the car they drive by and SJ sees YJ walking. He makes driver kim pull over

YJ takes him to her small officetel explaining she just moved in recently. He asks what that chance was she mentioned last time they met. YJ: there is no need for you to know – it’s in the past now. did you break up with SK. if it went well it would have been in the papers but there wasnt any. SJ: she ran away – cuz there was no way to prove it. YJ: prove what? SJ: that she loves me. YJ: how do you prove love. SJ: that’s just it. did I ask her to prove it? If she just said in front of my eyes – without me she will die. she cant live without me. just saying one of those things would have been plenty, but the timing wasnt right.  YJ: you probably asked her to prove it.  SJ:what? YJ: you dont trust people. you told me that too. SK probably didnt believe either.  SJ: no I am not the SJ from the past. I know what reality is. YJ: reality? SJ: my father bought my painting like you said. it’s correct he bought it thinking of me. and it’s correct that I need the business.  It was true that Han SK liked me and it’s true she liked what I had. if you look at dramas, the female lead is insterested in everything in the world, but isnt interested in just one thing – the man’s money. does that make sense? cuz of Han SK I realized that so what else would I ask her to prove?  I do admit I asked you to do that. but now it’s not like that. YJ: people don’t change so easily. outwardly you might admit, but inwardly you would have been suspicious without an end. you dont acknowledge that women have ambition. even though others dont know that I do. isnt that right? SJ: I said I dont. YJ: no matter what SK is not someone who runs away. ever since she was young, I saw her fall/collapse but never saw her run away. SJ: she must have changed. for certain she ran away first. YJ: you must have pushed her out by saying prove it. SJ: I never said that. YJ: you really didnt?  SJ: I didn’t – even in my dream i didnt say those things. YJ:dream?  SJ: dream? YJ: what about the dream? He suddenly remembers how SK said she loved him and hugged him in his dream. YJ asks what is wrong with you. are you ok? he says that wasn’t a dream.

After the hug, SJ had asked SK “prove it -I want to believe too. prove it so I can believe. I want to receive love and i want to love. So prove you love me.” SK: how do you prove love? What I can show you – it was true I liked sec kim first. And find out you were the CEO, I liked you more. And it’s true I became happy. it’s true- to myself and to you I felt like I committed a sin. it doesn’t mean I don’t love you. me – who loves you – that I am this kind of person – I am asking you to understand and acknowledge it. she shows him her list of ten and says what is written here is everything I can show you that is in my heart. SJ: I don’t know. I dont know. he pushed the list away and wouldn’t look at it

SJ walks out and remembers how he told her to earn millions and then tell me you love me. And how SK said that means you want to break up. and then how she said everything in my heart is written here.

He drives over to her home. He goes up to the rooftop. He knocks on the door and her sister opens the door. He asks if SK is here. she says no she isnt. He asks to go in for a short time. he goes to the desk and looks for that yellow notebook. He turns the pages and looks at the ten things she wrote down.  1) sec Kim is Jean theirry cha the CEO. 2) The CEO likes the candy SK. 3) but I am no longer candy.  4) The CEO doesn’t know I changed.  5) So the CEO liked me before I changed.  6) I have to act like I was before I changed. 7) I like sec Kim. 8) but the person I have to take advantage of is not sec Kim, but the CEO Jean TC. 9) cuz this is good fortune – a lottery. 10) so I have to act like the Han SK before she changed. He reads the whole list and looks around. He goes out and stands on the rooftop looking out.

He walks down and stands there. he suddenly takes off running.

SK is introduced as the new intern designer. they welcome her. She is shown her new work area. SK thinks to herself – in the end, cuz of  SJ I was able to come up one step/level. I am carrying a box as usual, but not as a part timer. She gets on the elevator with the box. I am still angry at the world as usual, but now I know I cant act like I am angry or say I am angry . SJ is running over to her

SK thinks -after living 27 yrs as candy cuz of Seo In Chan I woke up from my dream. I thought I woke up, but I dreamt of SJ. now I really woke from my dream. Once I woke from that dream, I will never dream it again. I am going to live as candy like someone said.

SK is walking out as SJ runs in. they lock eyes. SK thinks in her head “I will not dream.” He walks closer and she asks why did you come. SJ: just cuz I had some work. He walks past her and stops. then he turns around. SJ: Aren’t you going to hold on me. aren’t you supposed to hold onto me. SK: I don’t have time to play around I’ve been newly hired. SJ: you are too much. SK thinks “It’s the dream again.”He says why are you like that –arent you glad to see me. SK: why did you come? She says in her head “I wont dream again.” SJ: you said you would show me everything. SK: I showed you everything. SJ: you said you wouldnt run away. SK: I never ran away. SJ: you told me I couldnt run away so wont don’t you hold onto me. SK: If you came to be obstinate, I will be going. SJ:  You haven’t loved have you? you haven’t received love properly have you. How can you prove love. How can you leave cuz you couldn’t prove it – does that make sense. SK: that’s what you…but he says: you don’t have to prove it. you don’t have to act/pretend. You said you cant differentiate between sincerity and using. can you differentiate between the Han SK from the past and the Han SK who changed. I cant differentiate either.  whether I like candy SK or Han SK who changed. And now it doesn’t matter. Right now I like the han SK who is in front of my eyes. He hugs her. she hugs back. Then she pulls away and asks do you trust me. She wonders in her head- In front of you, will I be able to not pretend/act. SJ: I will try. in his head he says “I dont have 100% confidence.” SK: Do you understand me. She says in her head “I cant understand all of you.” SJ: I want to understand. in his head he says “for the first time someone other than me.” SK: what about the millions (I have to earn).  he says I will make sure you earn it. she smiles. SJ: why are you smiling?  SK: are you proposing to me now. SJ: There was something I wanted to say from long time ago but I wasnt able to. SK: What is it? SJ: it’s so good I get to say this. SK: what is it. SJ: listen. He quotes Winston Churchill. “immature love says I love you because I need you but mature love says I need you because I love you.” I love you so I need you SK shi. I need you SK shi so I love you. now I cant differentiate either. He smiles and steps closer. He pets her hair and then leans in to kiss her lightly. Then he looks at her and this time the kiss lingers and grows more passionate.

outside a clothing market, Tommy goes to his car and YJ comes out carrying heavy bags of clothes. they smile at each other. he brings drinks over and sits next to her. he says she looks well. YJ: are you kidding. Tommy: you had a chance – if you used it you didn’t have to leave cheongdamdong. Why didn’t you use that chance. YJ: If I tell you – you will laugh. tommy: what is it? YJ: I got angry at those people. I was angry and wanted to get back at them but didnt have a good way to teach them a lesson, but a good chance came along. Tommy: what was that? YJ: breaking up their business deal worth millions. That  chance to break up a deal worth millions  was in my hands so how could i just leave that alone. Tommy: that’s why you broke up that deal?  YJ: SK said – if you live assiduously and try your best and are still poor- you should get angry at the world. I was so cool back then. now I wonder why I was like that in the past. Tommy: why? do you regret. YJ: of course I regret – every morning when i put on medical patches I regret a lot. this doesnt suit me – it’s so hard i could die. He says your heart looks comfortable. She says my body has to be comfortable for my heart to be comfortable. back then I must have been crazy for a short time (for letting SK get to her to do this -to leave and start over and work) after I came out, if I started work, I thought would succeed right away but business is not doing well. How about you. He says how all his connections for matchmaking was cut off. YJ: that’s good cuz you didnt want to do that anyway. he says his money was reduced. Her brother comes over and says let’s go the bus is leaving. She gives tommy her card and says introduce me (around). Have you seen SK. Tommy says she is meeting/dating SJ again. YJ: that’s good. SK will do well. She succeeded her way. she always said “her way.” Tommy: you never know. do people like us believe in happy endings. Even though the movie ended with a passionate kiss, in reality their next life is left.

Cha tells SK’s parents –  all you have to do is move your bodies in there – a villa in Cheongdam has already been contracted. Her dad says we dont want to. SK got married – did I? Cha: how much longer are you going to be like this- reporters will be taking pics. her dad says – we cant listen to people saying we sold our daughter off to a wealthy family.

SK and SJ are on the deck of their home. while SK recites what happens in the book and narrates her thoughts, SJ kisses her and carries her out into the yard and they walk off holding hands. SK: The real ending of alice was not alice waking from her dream. Alice’s older sister sleeps again. with her eyes half closed, she half believed she came to wonderland. we also half believed that we came to wonderland when we half closed our eyes. even though we knew if we opened our eyes again we would be back in reality. She quotes from the book and then says. but we half close our eyes -even though we know if we open our eyes again, everything will change back to reality.

End

Watching SJ trying to wrap his head around the situation was amusing cuz he was grasping at every straw he found, but having to see how much pain he caused her in the process just broke my heart.  Listening to how SK justified her reasons for trying to go into Cheongdamdong made a lot more sense to me than it ever did before. I sort of wish these scenes came out a few episodes ago so we can go back to the light hearted ones before it ends. I guess it’s the price we pay for all the fun we had along the way since some drama has to be thrown in at some point and they decided to wait so close to the end. At least we got to see a whole other side of SJ – the stalking one. It’s just too bad he had to follow her around just to get a feel for how she has been living. He might think Cheongdamdong is just a location he lives in, but until he sees the place through her eyes, he will never completely understand where she is coming from.

Written before it aired: She can cry like this from the weight of her lies when she is alone, but once she is face to face with the man she hurt, she tries not to show her vulnerability. It’s like she feels entitled to give her explanation cuz the part of her that loved him and not his money deserves that much. In the mood that he is in right now, I can’t help wonder if SJ wouldn’t be moved by her tears more than her insistency on being heard. Judging from the preview, she turned the tables again. She isn’t going to be afraid to speak her mind, be assertive, and stand up to SJ. It worked like a charm on Tommy, but he didn’t have a broken heart to deal with at the time. As long as he isn’t willing to let go of those stuffed rabbits, I bet SJ will come around a lot sooner than we expect. I don’t think this drama will take up an entire episode on moody, bitter SJ so close to the end. The lovesick puppy side is going to come back a lot quicker and annoy the angry part of him.  The minute he gave her the chance to show all of herself, he never had a prayer of getting away.

SJ: I already saw everything. SK: what did you see? Han SK who hangs her life on love. Han SK who is like a candy? yes that was me and trying to use you was me too, but i cant differentiate between truth and using you.  SJ says that drives him crazy – he woke from his nightmare from 6 yrs ago so why is it the same dream. what is driving me more crazy is – why is this a reality instead of a dream. SK: I am not Seo YJ – I will never run away. you cant run away either. SK: let’s go. she drags him away

SJ:stop it- just cuz you do this nothing will change. S: they said you will die. everyone is worried saying they dont know what will happen to you. SJ: die? who said that? Seo YJ? SK: D said that and your father said that too. SJ: father? why would I die? what did I do wrong to die. SK: I didn’t think you would -you are not someone who would die easily over something like this.  SJ: that’s right. I wont die.

SK: but why do all of them think that. he says they are overreacting. SK: isnt it what you want? it’s what you want and it happened the way you wanted. SJ: what are you saying? SK: cuz you wanted attention. like kids who pretend to be sick, that you have a problem with your mental state, it’s fake/made up isnt it? SJ: what? attention? fake illness? am I a kid? SK: you arent a kid right? SJ: I’m not. SK: then why run away? SJ: who is running away? SK: it’s correct you are running away – always in the most important moment,you run off. SJ: when did I?  SK: it’s your habit – to run away from reality. SJ: it’s not -I am going cuz I dont want to see you-cuz I dont want to stay in the same country as you. SK: then keep your promise. SJ: what promise? SK: that you would die after I leave. SJ: whether you leave or not I wont die. D and moon come over and ask if SJ is ok. nothing much happened right? SJ: why are you overreacting  – I am perfectly fine. D: cuz of you everyone was frantic. SJ: why? over what? stop overreacting. She says to SJ:  if you dont like that then don’t run away. SJ: I said it’s not so why keep saying run away. D asks to speak to SJ. SJ says: talk about what –why is everyone like this

Moon and D take SJ away and puts him in the car. SJ kept saying let me go. SK watches that

Tommy comes over and calls out her name

In the car, D says SJ.  SJ: since when did you  know. D says I heard from your father today. SJ: what? father? SJ asks moon- since when did you know? Moon: a little while ago from doctor huh (D). SJ: what is this – everyone knew except me. did you tell her I was in danger? what did you tell her for SK to be like that? D: I didnt say much. a few days ago she asked me this and that.  for now I will meet SK. SJ: no – don’t do anything at all and don’t talk to her about me. no matter what dont do anything at all

In the car, SK says tm I will go see him right away. He will want to ask me a lot of things. I have to answer everything. Tommy : he might not ask. cuz hearing it will torment him. SK: I am still going every day. Tommy: why do I wish you would stop here. there was a girl I liked a lot in the past -we like each other a lot, but we broke up cuz I said to break up. SK: why? Tommy: she saw too much of all of me– the good and the terrible. SK: I know what you are saying. I broke up cuz of that too. I know – but people don’t change much. I wont end it like this.

YJ is packed and sitting in an empty room

D goes home with SJ. SJ tells D to go cuz he doesn’t need to come in. his dad is waiting for him. SJ asks what is this – why are you here. did you come to rub it in. you knew but why didn’t you say – to make me the fool. Cha says the first fatherly thing ever: this is nothing big – when time goes by, it will seem like nothing. SJ: who said anything. you can go cuz I am ok. SJ tells D to leave too. D: don’t be like that. SJ yells for him to stop.

SJ pushes both of them out of his home. D tells cha not to worry. I will pay some attention to this. Cha asks how did you drag him back. D: I didnt drag him back – he came on his own.   after fighting a lot with SK he left the airport on his own.

SJ remembers how SK said he would die after she leaves so he gets mad

SK’s parents heard the news about what SK did to SJ from AJ and her sis. SK comes home. Her mom says to SK – you didn’t do that did you. SK: I am sorry mom and dad. Her mom almost faints. Her mom asks: are you really SK? How could you do that. why did you do it. her mom hits SK. Her dad looks sad (like he blames himself)

Her dad is on the roof so SK goes up to him to say sorry. He says this is all my fault. while you watched me – what hope could you have had. SK: why is it always your fault dad. only being able to live like this – why is it your fault dad. He says then whose fault is it – what did SJ do wrong. this is really not right. How could you drive a nail into the heart of someone that good.

SJ looks at his rabbits and asks what were those. He remembers her asking for his name. SJ: what was that? then he remembers her saying thank you. SJ: what was that back then. he sits down and gets paper ready and calls Moon. SJ says back then you said AJ told you something – on the night you drank with her you said SK liked sec kim – what was that date and time. moon says 12-24 early in the morning between 1-2am. Moon: There is something I didn’t tell you – to tell the truth. SJ: what is it? moon: SK said she likes sec kim. I told (AJ) that you were sec kim. SJ: are you positive. You told the day before the Christmas party. SJ hangs up and writes notes down. He says SK you’ve been caught

AJ asks you are going every day. SK says yes whether we fight or what I am going to go see him every day. AJ: isnt it better to leave him alone for now. if girls chase, guys run away. SK: this is all I know how to do. AJ: that was always your problem – guys dont like girls who cling. also would he want to see your face?  SK says even if he doesnt meet me I am going-starting  tm morning I will go see him right away. There is loud banging

AJ goes out and says he came first. SK goes out and SJ says you said you couldnt differentiate, but how could you not. he shows her the paper. On 12-23-2012 sec moon told AJ that sec kim is the CEO. SJ calls AJ the witness but she goes in and hides. SJ says to AJ through the door: where are you going. you remember don’t you. you told moon. come out and talk. so it’s bugging you huh (meaning weighing  on her conscience) SJ says to SK- it’s for certain – you planned this – you knew I was the CEO and wrote the letter on the 25th. writing about how you liked sec kim. after that you came to see me on purpose. after that – (you said) “you and I are too far apart.” SK: it’s not. he waves the paper and says the proof is here. SK: it was way before 12-24  – when you became my white rabbit. SJ: what is that? SK: Didn’t you watch alice in wonderland. in that, alice follows the white rabbit.  for someone like me to go into cheongdamdong – I needed a white rabbit. SJ: to put it simply you needed someone to use. SK : yes. SJ: that’s why you tried to meet the CEO so much. SK: yes. SJ: And fire sec kim cuz he is poor. SK: yes. SJ: And only used him. SK: yes. SJ: You said you liked him -you said you liked sec kim – was that part of your plan too? for AJ to tell Moon and Moon to tell me. SK: no. SJ: dont lie. you said you were after the white rabbit. SK: it’s ok if you dont believe me – before I knew you were the CEO-  it is true I liked sec kim. SJ: then why fire him? cuz sec kim was poor. are you really that kind of person? SK: yes I liked sec kim. and I fired him. when I knew you were the CEO – i liked it – it was me. but I liked sec kim before so I have an alibi.   SJ: you cant tell the difference between liking or using now. SK: yes. SJ: that drives me crazy the most.  Why cant you tell – don’t you know your own feelings. She yells back -why do you not trust your feelings. whether you were sec kim or the CEO – you were loved by me-you knew that- you knew that very well. He says no I don’t know. right now – I don’t know Han SK.

SK goes in and AJ says it’s good that SJ came first – cuz it shows he doesnt want to lose you -I see some hope.

SJ goes back in the car and looks at the paper. It was way before this. then when was it. he remembers how SK wanted to meet the CEO. SJ: was it starting from then. How she said it was way before 12-24 when SJ was her white rabbit. SJ: what is a white rabbit

Next morning, SK gets ready to leave. AJ:you are going to him now? seeing how he was yesterday it doesnt seem like he wont meet you.  SK: i’m going to stop by his home and go straight to work. AJ worries if SK’s office will be ok. SK: it wont be. There is a knock at the door. It’s SJ again.

He asks when did I become the white rabbit. SK quotes him: “it is a chance so I hold onto it. it was the first good thing that happened to han SK so why think of declining first” -starting from when you said that. when you told me to hold on i held on. SJ: then starting from when you first started as the stylist? SK: yes. SJ: now I know. he takes out the rabbit and thinks she did that to get to him.SK: would it have been from then or before? what was it back then. what was it this time? that’s all you thought about all night didnt you?

She takes the box of rabbits away cuz it torments him. She throws it away so he asks what are you doing. SK: cuz you don’t want to see them. SJ: so you are going to throw them away? SK: If they don’t mean anything to you then it doesn’t mean anything to me. SJ: it really doesnt? you gave me this and asked for my name. for the first time – that night you said thank you. SK: so? SJ: did you mean it or not? you meant it didnt you? SK: that’s your problem. You only want to see what you want and hear what you want. So you cant see a person properly. if you dont see a person properly how can you love. I saw you properly –all of it – even how you immature and cowardly you are. So now you need to see me. not the Han SK you see in your imagination but see Han SK in reality. She walks away leaving the rabbits behind

He takes the box with him to his car. He says “imagination?” and looks at the letter she wrote and remembers the tears he shed on her bank account. SJ: no way. He goes after her in his car and honks. He asks about her letter. I must know about this. she turns and gets in his car. SJ: what is this. she asks aren’t you going. SJ: go where? SK: You wanted to know everything so I will tell you

They go to the place she broke up with her ex boyfriend. SK: That letter was for real. SJ: you wrote it to rescue him. SK: I wrote it to throw him away.SJ:why? SK: to him- It was better I wasn’t by his side. at the office – I was someone they couldnt use as a designer. The Han SK back then was useless to anyone or anyplace in the world. “it would be better if I threw myself away. in my life –  it would be nice if someone aside from me saved me” so I went into Cheongdamdong. SJ: so I was the person who could rescue your from your life? SK: yes cuz you had everything I needed. SJ: in the end, cuz you didnt have money you broke up with a  man and found a guy with a lot of money. so sincerity appeared and you wanted to use him. that’s what happened. SK: yes. SJ: even now you don’t want to let go? SK: I really thought you would rescue me from my life but she (han SK) told me to rescue you -and protect you- that I am your home and your everything, if I’m not here- you are nothing. Wherever I was in the world -to anyone – Han SK who is useless said that. I threw myself away but you found me again. This is the kind of person you are to me. He seems moved by her words. She leaves him alone and walks away

SK gets a call from his dad

Cha says totally end it with SJ. SK: I cant. cha: what? SK: you said if he knows the truth – something major would happen but it didnt happen. cha: do you know how he feels inside now? SK: stop covering it up and saying he is weak.  if he is weak hearted, you are to blame for that too. Cha gets mad saying what is my fault. how can you turn the blame on me. SK: it’s not cuz he opened his heart – it’s cuz in front of your standards he opens it or cant.  he is trying to meet your standards. ( as in later on take over the business from Cha). cha says that SJ only lived doing what he wanted. SK: if he wanted to go only what he wanted he would lived just drawning, but why do you think he went into artemis and not draw. he was gaining experience. artemis is a fashion company. would it have been possible without his artistic experience.  Acknowledge what SJ likes to do just once. Also the problem of ending it with SJ – leave it up to us. cha: what are you going to do? SK: if we decide to end it – we will. But like YJ did by running away, you chasing her away, and SJ running away, I dont want to end it like that.  I love SJ.

SJ is in the car and remembers how she said I threw myself away but you found me again

SK goes to work and her box is packed. The guy says IH ordered it so settle your things. SK takes her box to leave. IH comes over and says it’s cuz I think you will be uncomfortable and we will be uncomfortable so understand. SK says yes. IH: if you think about it it’s an unbelievable outcome – we lost millions in the business deal and what you wanted didnt pan out. IH gives her a little lecture – she may have missed out on the business deal, but at least she doled out justice cuz they live in a fair world. so SK says you looked so different from me and you seemed so much higher up, so it makes me happy to see you are a person just like me. you must have given up on that business venture. i didnt mean for that to happen so I apologize. also I didn’t give up yet on SJ yet and I wont let him give up either.

MH tells YJ to sit. YJ asks why did you call me. He says I will give you a last chance. I cant give up on the outlet deal cuz it’s a lot of money. i have to make it go through somehow. YJ: so? MH says go and catch cha SJ.(as in bring SJ over to their side to make the deal) The outlet deal is in his hands. And you are our tie to him. we are going to see how you do and decide what to do about you. Think it over carefully. Up to now I was business to you. so thanks to you – let me save my business-  if it’s the business I want – it’s possible for you to continue the business you do. she asks is this how you are punishing me. MH: what punishment? it’s an offer. isnt this a big deal? calculate it well. She cries as he walks away

In the elevator YJ meets up with SK. YJ asks were you kicked out. SK: yes. YJ: not yet for me. SK: I didn’t know the situation so I didn’t get to call. Sorry. YJ: it’s ok thank goodness I have a choice whether to be kicked out or not. how is SJ. SK says I made sure he wouldn’t run away. And I wont run away either. YJ: that’s good.

SJ is in the car remembering how SK  said – back then Han SK was someone useless to anyone and anyplace in the world. “She said – If I am gone that you are nothing.”  that’s what Han SK said -the girl who is useless to anyone  and anyplace in the world

SK comes out and tommy calls and says I heard you were fired. SK: news travels fast. Tommy’s matchmaking career is over too and some of his shops were closed cuz GN made that happen. it turned out well cuz he wanted to quit the matchmaking anyway. He asks where are you now.

SJ pulls up and is about to call SK but she is waiting for tommy to pull up. SJ watches tommy put the box in his car. SK gets in. SJ looks upset to watch them leave together.

SJ followed them to tommy’s office. He remembers how tommy came to the wedding dress fitting

SK asks don’t you regret. Tommy – of course I regret a lot. I was crazy. after that Seo YJ came here and said -why did you accept that foolish offer. cuz she and I are not sweet/innocent people like you. SK: I thought I convinced you in a cool way. tommy: it was cool but do people fall for that. it’s not a drama.  Starting from then I regretted a lot. SK: why don’t you look like you regret. He says this is what I look like when I regret. tommy: how is SJ? SK: I am trying. He asks if she went to see SJ everyday. SK: I didnt go. tommy: why? are you faltering? are you giving up. SK: before I could go see him, he came to see me

Tommy sees SK off and SJ watches that from his car. He sees tommy smiling as he watches her leave

SJ goes in to see tommy. tommy: what bring you here. SJ: who is han SK. Tommy says your fiancé. SJ: isnt she the one who ruined your matchmaking? she was also mistaken for being sponsored by me.  why is that person dropping by here. you seemed so close (attentive) carrying her box, opening her door, and while you were going in – putting your hand on the small of her back. SJ looked at his hand saying that looking jealous. SJ: what is that?  Tommy: will you understand if I tell you I am helping her. SJ: help? what? Tommy: to come into cheongdamdong SJ: what is cheongdamdong to you people. what is it for you to help her? Why don’t I understand at all. tommy tries to explain but SJ stops him saying what a minute.  are you the (*) clock rabbit (he got the wrong rabbit name so it was funny) – the rabbit from Alice in wonderland. Tommy: the white rabbit? SJ: did you coach her to make me her white rabbit? tommy: I wasn’t going to help from the start- like you said I was trying to help you and IH match but han SK got in the way.  SJ: so? tommy: I made that video, but it didnt work on her. you know han SK -that effort.  SJ: what do you know about her to talk. tommy: I don’t know anything, but I know one thing. SJ: what? tommy: she is sincere. no matter how hard you try – you will never understand the feeling when you are standing at the edge. I know that too. SJ: I’ve stood there to a few times so what do you know about me. not being able to understand this – it doesnt mean I am wrong – you people are wrong. SJ leaves

Tommy calls SK and says SJ came by. He saw us awhile ago. so I told him the truth. SK: you did well. tommy: will you be ok? SK: He will come to see me. She hears knocking and says he came

SK goes out to meet SJ. She ask what are you curious about this time. he asks when did it start. when did you know Seo YJ was my past girlfriend? tell me. SK: the day you sent the USB  -that’s when I found out seo YJ was your past girlfriend. so I couldnt confess. the day you proposed to me the video was sent – it was tommy’s threat. but I didnt want to lose. So I accepted your proposal. SJ: why? why did you have to endure that kind of threat and not give up? why did you have to go so far to those things and come into cheongdamdong. SK: I wanted to live just loving – give love and accept love. I just wanted to love. But I couldn’t live with just love . He says don’t make excuses. love can be the hardest for some people. SK: the world was the hardest for me.  you want to believe in love but I wanted to believe in the world. “no matter how hard you try and still being poor -it’s not your fault” there wasnt a world that said that to me. SJ:  if you are poor can you use people’s sincerity.  what does being poor and love have to do with each other. I went through the same things – didn’t have a place to eat or sleep and still endured it and came up to this position. Poor? Don’t make an excuse. She says you were fortunate.  Your drawing. That kind of fortune doesn’t come to just anyone. He says how can you call that fortunate – some crazy person bought it for 30000 euros – they thought it was worth that and bought it so how do you call that fortunate. fine call it that. in that ridiculous situation I lived assiduously. the world paid me back for that. She says we didn’t have that kind of world. if we worked hard, a world where something great happens-not once did we live like that. He asks so are you saying I got all the way here through luck. SK: you rode on that luck. SJ: rode? with my own strength, you know very well how I got here. SK: cuz you are a person who can believe in fortune.  but I am not someone who can believe easily in fortune. SJ: stop talking like a loser. SK is crippled by his words. SK cries and says: no matter how much you try and still being poor, do you think it’s your fault. no matter how hard you try and still being poor, you think it’s cuz i was foolish. Then it means I lived my life the wrong way. He says yes it does.

she goes inside and cries alone so he almost knocks on her door but stops himself and just leans against the door

YJ’s brother goes to meet YJ who is drinking alone. She says do you remember during IMF when father’s business went bankrupt and we moved to a basement home. her brother says how terrible that home was. She says how her mother still bought her expensive nice clothes even while living in that home. Her brother says even though she said we dont have money all the time she bought you nice things. YJ: when i looked into her eyes she would say – you are pretty so that is your attribute. Her brother : she said you were the only one who could save our home. What are you going to do.

D asks are you ok. What are you going to do with SK. SJ: to be honest I was grateful when she came to the airport to hold me back. I wanted to use that. D asks then do you want to make it work with SK again. SJ: I dont think it will work. D: why?  SJ: my painting – selling it for 30000 euros – what do you think of that. D: think what? you worked hard to paint it so people recognized its worth.  SJ: you think like that right? D: is there another way to think of it? SJ: SK doesnt -she thinks it was luck. SJ: I want to find out who it was.  to be honest – I thought only once that maybe it was him. D: who? SJ: no that wouldn’t have happened. (flashback shows that his dad bought his painting. Cha said what is this – how does it help with experience. go throw it out to any gallery. ) SJ: there was a lot of things she said that was correct so even when I wanted to scold – i couldnt say a word and just listened.   but this time I cant understand this.  I want to understand her but more than deceiving me – I cant understand.  is not believing people something that torments/anguishes you –is not believing in the world something that torments you. cuz there is no honesty – losing love – is that torment. not having money throwing love away – does that torment

SK is sitting in her room when there is a sound outside so she goes out thinking it’s SJ. But no one is there. SJ is walking up to her place. She keeps going out at every sound so she goes for a walk.

She walked to his home and he is in front of her home. He doesn’t knock. She doesn’t either. He stands on her roof and she stands outside his home.

청담동 앨리스.E15.130126.HDTV.XviD-Baros[04-15-53]

Next morning, SJ is in his car and sees SK. He follows her as she gets on the subway. She is being crushed by people. He watches her suffer like that.

SK goes and drops off her resume for a job

He walks around his neighborhood and says what is cheongdamdong for SK to do that to come here – when this is just a place I live in

Moon hears that SJ and SK are fighting. Moon: even if that happened, I thought they would resolve it well. D: to be honest I am disappointed in SK.  deceiving SJ was on thing, but over this she is 100% in the wrong. moon: what did they fight over? D: the painting. moon: painting?

YJ is waiting for SJ outside his home

SK goes to see tommy. tommy: did you meet cha SJ? SK: yes

SJ: you said you had something to say.  are  you going to get divorced. YJ: no they gave me a chance. SJ: a chance?  SJ: what is it. this might not be my place to say this but if I didnt show up in front of you  – if you didnt get involved with SK –  this wouldn’t have happened. But if I can help I will. What is that chance. YJ: no I cant do it. SJ: what is it? tell me. YJ: sorry I will be going. SJ: was the painting (bought by) you any chance?

SK says SJ really doesn’t know. he has no clue. tommy: painting?

D says that painting was sold for 30000 euros and no one knows who bought it cuz it was anonymous. moon :I think I know who. D: who?

SJ says in 2008 Paris – I suspected it was you just once- with the money you got from my father. did yo buy it?

SK says I don’t know who bought it. the first person SJ should suspect, he didnt suspect at all

YJ: buy your painting with the money I got – do I look like that kind of person? SJ: it wasnt you huh? YJ: of course. it’s too obvious who it is. SJ: it’s not you but it’s obvious? Then who is it. YJ: you don’t know? or are you doing this on purpose. SJ: what are you saying -who is it

SJ is in shock.

SK: waking from the dream.

I finally got to update during the middle instead of waiting at the end cuz of the crying scenes. Plus I wanted people to read what he said to her. I have to admit – his words were pretty harsh. I get why he is angry, but he doesn’t have the whole picture yet. I keep reminding myself what SK has to feel sorry for cuz I forget sometimes. Even though she started out looking for the wrong thing, after she realized she was in love with him, all her actions were honorable. Well except for the lies that had to continue to protect him. It’s going to be interesting to see what SK has to say to defend herself. You can’t help but wonder if there are any words that will get through his pain right now. Knowing how determined SK is to set things right, she will find exactly the right words.

E14

SJ watches the video and smiles. he asks what is this.  the two people resemble people I know.

D says how SJ wont acknowledge reality cuz if he does he wont be able to live

IH says they dont resemble anyone – did you see it properly. SJ: yes I saw it well. I will contact you about the outlet. IH wonders did he already know or does he intend to cover it up. he says you worked hard – see you next time. he leaves

in the car IH wonders how could he not have a reaction – did he know or is he really going to cover it up

D says I found out then that he cut ties with his father. so I went back to Paris, but SJ was gone. SK: what do you mean he was gone. D: he left his apartment – wasnt able to pay his school tuition, i searched for 6 wks and found him in a ridiculous shack. he let go of everything and lived a year like that without his senses. SK says what if he has another shock that will be hard for him to handle. D says why talk about that. SK: you never know what happens to people. D: that should never happen in his life again. but if it does,  think of him as a time bomb you dont know when and how he will go off and never leave him alone. be sure to be by his side

SJ goes to his office and starts to cry

SK walks out of D’s office and gets a call from SJ

She goes to his home and rings the bell. She opens it and goes in. she calls out his name and looks for him. She walks over to the kitchen and he is there setting up wine glasses. He says you came and smiles at her. she says I thought you weren’t at home. He says where would I go. Have a seat. She asks what all this is suddenly. He says he ordered wine from chateau salon -the one he mentioned before. He pours and tells her to drink.

Tommy is on the phone asking is the meeting over – what happened. ok. YJ asks what they said. Tommy says SJ left work as usual after the meeting ended. like nothing happened, he was in a good mood. YJ thinks IH didn’t tell then. tommy says she could have gone and had a change of heart. YJ wants to confirm.

IH goes to her office and slams her door shut. YJ comes over and asks what is going on. the guy says IH had a meeting with artemis and it didnt go well. it was a briefing for the outlet and I prepared all the video and photos. YJ asks if he did it all alone but he says IH added some extras. but she said there was no reaction. IH comes out so YJ asks did you tell him. IH says JTC is impressive. but how much can he hold it in.

YJ calls tommy. he asks what happened. YJ says I think she told him everything.

SK looks at photos of him as a kid and says your eyes are really pretty. It’s pretty now too. He looks at her so she asks why. He shakes his head to say “it’s nothing” and says I will bring one more (bottle) and gets up.

SK gets a call and takes it in the bathroom. Tommy asks where are you now – are you with him. She says yes I am at SJ’s home. He asks did anything happen. She asks why. He says SJ knows everything. SK: what? Tommy says IH told him everything. SK is in shock. She remembers how D said SJ didn’t acknowledge reality cuz if he does he wont be able to live. Tommy asks are you listening to me. The phone is on the ground so she doesn’t answer him. She cries and hears SJ calling out for her. where are you. she tells tommy I have to hang up. she turns her phone off and gets up and goes out.

she looks at SJ who is opening another bottle of wine. She slowly walks over to him. He asks did you go to the bathroom – I looked for you. come here I have something to say. She goes and sits next to him. He says starting from tm we will be busy cuz we have a lot to do – to look for wedding halls, look at homes, film a wedding album, let’s do each one carefully. He drinks and sighs. She smiles at him.

Tommy says her phone is off. What is going on. this is strange. until I told her – does it make sense that he didn’t say anything to her – he should have been angry or cursing or arguing why did you do it – maybe he is covering it up. say something – is it ok for SK to be with him right now. YJ says SK chose this.

SJ is drunk and his eyes are closed. She cries watching him.

She puts him to bed and tucks him in. she remembers his dad saying keep your mouth shut for the rest of your life and stick to SJ’s side –just so you feel better, if you do something like reveal it to SJ,  I wont leave you alone then. Then she remembers how D told her to stay by SJ’s side and never leave him alone. SK holds his hand and thinks – you will be able to handle it all – even if it ends here – cuz it’s my responsibility – I will never run away.

SJ wakes up and remembers the video he watched. IH had said did you see it properly – it isnt someone who resembles someone you know. he hears clinking sounds and goes out. SK cooked for him. SK: did you wake up. He asks if she slept here. she says yes in the living room. she asks how he could drink so little and fall asleep. you really cant drink alcohol. my dad worried cuz you couldnt drink.  She pours him juice and tells him to sit. Did you sleep well? SJ: yes. SK: in the past you said you weren’t a cool prince and a cowardly man. But I don’t know if you are cowardly cuz you aren’t at all. you don’t have to show me just your good sides. He looks down and then looks up smiling saying I have something to show you today. Let’s hurry and eat and go out

In the car they don’t say anything.

He drives her to a church. They go inside and she asks why they came here. he says how he is going to put white flowers on both sides and candles in the front too. Wont it be pretty. On that day you will be the prettiest. He holds out his hand and says should we go in. they march down the aisle in the empty church and he is smiling. He says AJ came over there. Over there is sec Moon and driver kim. Also D. say hello. she waves to the imaginary friends. He points out her family and his dad over there.  they stand before an imaginary minister. The wedding ceremony starts. They both vow to take each other as husband and wife. SJ says will you accept this ring as a token of my love. He puts on the imaginary ring on her finger.  She says the same thing and puts the imaginary ring on his finger.the minister says now the two of you are not two – you are one. what God has joined together – let no man tear apart. he asks if there are any objections to this wedding or forever hold your peace. he asks if the groom objects. SJ says no I dont object. he asks if the bride objects. SK remembers what SJ said before when he proposed to her – one day a woman said – the opposite of I love you is not i dont love you-  there is nothing I can do for that person. How he said “you showed me there was a love I didnt have to fear in this world – I found it. you are my home. I said there wont be but I kept looking and looking – you are my home.”  SJ tells her to hurry and answer. She says I have something to say. He says what are you going to say – just hurry and say you don’t have any objections. hurry. She cries and says listen to me. You have to. I lied to you. his face changes and he warns – don’t do it. if you say one more word – I will kill you. the minister and everyone disappears and they are in the empty church again. SJ: don’t say anything at all. nothing happened. She cries and looks at him. SJ: nothing is going to change. SK: I am sorry. I am sorry SJ shi. I was wrong. You didn’t do anything wrong – I did wrong. So don’t torment yourself. don’t try to handle it on your own. This is my burden to bear -not yours. Going to hell – I have to go not you. SJ cries and says (in banmal) you ruined everything. He walks out the church crying. she sits down and cries alone.

He gets in his car and she remembers what he said about believing in love.  She runs after him but he already drove off. She tries calling him but he wont answer and lets it ring

He stopped the car and pulled over. He is sobbing

SK runs down the hill to get a cab

D asks what that means. what about SJ. She says I will tell you in detail later – call SJ for now. He says ok and tries to call SJ

D and SK go to SJ’s home. D says he didn’t come here. D tries calling and says he isnt picking up. what is going on. she says I will tell you later. We have to find SJ first.  Stay here and be with him if he comes. She runs out and calls Moon.

she goes to the office and Moon says SJ’s phone is off.  he asks if something is going on,. She asks him where SJ would go. I have to find him

Cha hears his sec cant reach SJ when the sec called him to remind him about the meeting today. so cha calls SJ and his phone is off. Cha calls SK

They meet and he yells she should have caught him. she explains how SJ was holding it in and was tormented (after knowing the truth). cha yells You should have said that’s not it “I don’t know about it – it’s what IH made up” that’s what you should have done. cha calms down and asks where SJ went. She says after they parted SJ drove off. He orders her to find and bring SJ to him without any harm no matter what.

SK walks by the gallery and runs inside. she asks if the painting was switched (the one SJ painted). The woman says you are the girlfriend that event was prepared for. today you came separately. SK asks did that person come here. she says -yes he came and asked where the painting was so I told him to go to CB gallery

Sec says there was no accident reported (for SJ). And it’s time for the meeting. Cha asks about Shin (IH’s dad.) sec says he came

MH, his dad, and IH are waiting. MH says to his dad- we should finish up the contract within this week. shin says we should do that. Cha comes in. Shin says SJ is running late but cha says he wont come. we have to stop here. Shin asks what that means suddenly. cha says I am going to do the outlet with a different partner. I wont work with GN. The reason – shin IH knows very well. Cha leaves the room. MH and her dad asks what happened -what is he talking about. She says I will tell you all of it at home

YJ told her brother what was going on. that IH told SJ. so he worries MH will find out soon. and the business deal will be messed up. YJ says I will call again later. YJ’s mother in law shows up. the mom asks what is going on. royal group folded up the business deal. she says Shin is coming so she is going to ask him what is going on. The dad, MH, and IH are announced. YJ prepares herself to greet them when the elevator door opens. IH glares at YJ. the mom asks what is going on. IH says to her family – I will tell you inside. she goes over to YJ and smirks.

IH shows her family the video of YJ and SK talking. Shin says cover it up but the mom wanted to keep watching. The mom throws water on YJ’s face yelling at her saying I should never have let you in. you come in and ruin this home like this. they say lowly people come on strong and are scary – you really are scary – no you arent scary–you are impressive. She points out what YJ did with cha and his son. as if that wasnt enough,  you made a mockery of my son too. what were you thinking.  The dad says to stop. MH tells YJ to come inside and walks to their room. Shin yells at IH. The mom says what could IH do – see that and cover it up. I wouldn’t be able to cover it up. the mom says you should have told me sooner.  IH says if i did – you would have taken care of YJ, but you would have covered up what SK did. the dad says of course I would have covered it up -cuz of how much money is involved. cuz you acted emotionally – in the end what did you get out of it?  all you did was show you are rock bottom. IH yells back -you made me see rock bottom. she accuses her dad of not doing anything about the match and bowing out first when she got rejected. He says cuz you lost. During business if the other side changes partner you lost. Don’t you know that by now?

MH asks is this what you said you had something to say? Why? Cuz you wanted to confess everything to me so i could save you and then you wont get kicked out? you didnt want to let it go that much? putting up with SJ and the matchmaking -is that how much you wanted to stay. when and where did it start– how could you hide it and keep it under wraps–so things turned out like this. talk. YJ cries and says why is that important now. Do I get divorced? He says yes that’s right. That wasn’t important to you from the start. why would you like me – my personality and looks? no- You needed someone to protect you in this world. someone who can protect you well. I knew but this is too much. I saw too much of everything.  She says I wanted to protect you too – cuz I wanted to look good and do well for the person who protected me. I wanted to do well. I was trying to protect you too. He seems to be moved by her words but leaves the room anyway. YJ is sobbing

IH walks out and YJ is there. they lock eyes. YJ is no longer crying

MH’s mom says call the lawyer now and we will do as the contract states –  we wont give her anything in the divorce settlement and just kick her out with just her body. The dad says that’s not urgent now. He is trying to salvage the deal and talks about his business deal with royal group and artemis – how to make another connection. He tells his son to look into YJ – her connection with Cha and how to use it. they can take care of her afterwards. it wont be too late then. MH says I wont end it like this either.

YJ looks around her closet and gets a call from tommy. He says I cant reach SK- did you hear anything. She says the 3of us – it’s game over. My household found out everything and the business deal is over too. So it must be over for SK as well

Tommy calls SK again

SK went to a gallery looking for SJ’s painting. She shows a pic of SJ and asks if he came  to see the pic. The woman says he looked at this painting for a long time and left. SK asks when he came by. The woman says about two hrs ago. SK runs out and almost gets hit by a car

Tommy calls her and asks are you ok – did nothing happen. She says SJ is gone. tommy: what are you saying. She says SJ is gone. he asks where are you – I will go there now. She cries and says SJ is gone. tommy yells where are you now.

SK is walking down the street when tommy pulls up. he runs after her. he asks if she is ok. Did you go everywhere he might go. She says he isnt at all those places. He asks if there is a place he would go in particular. She walks off so he asks where are you going. She says I have to find him – I have so many things left that I didnt get to do for him yet.  i have to become his real home and show him there is a love he doesn’t have to fear. most importantly – I didn’t get to show him all of me yet. tommy says go to his home. He will want to go somewhere for a short time, but he is the CEO of artemis korea so he cant just disappear like this.

SK runs to SJ’s home calling out for him. She imagines him greeting her.

Tommy is outside looking up into SJ’s apartment.

SK looks at the map of paris at all the places they were going to go. She sees a picture of a plane. She remembers how SJ said he is a pro at running away. How he ran away to paris. She remembers asking do you want to leave korea. Moon calls and says SJ is going to paris. I was wondering if he would leave so I checked and his carry on bag is gone. SK runs out and tells tommy SJ is at the airport. 10:50 pm flight to paris. tommy tells her to get in the car

SJ looks at an empty seat and how SK promised to go with him next time to paris.

In the car SK remembers how SJ told her – you ruined everything.

Tommy pulls up to the airport and they run in.

SJ is waiting in line to board.

Tommy asks for the boarding gate for paris at the info desk. They get the gate number so SK and tommy run

SJ is in line and getting closer to the gate entrance. SK sees him and calls out his name. she goes over and holds his arm. He says let go. She says you cant go and pulls him out of line. SJ: what are you doing. It’s all over. I can never go back to the way it was. like a dummy- I was going to forget – if I don’t know then nothing changes. But you kept being by my side. I kept seeing it (reality).  I didn’t want to acknowledge it, it had to be like nothing happened, but you kept making it a reality. It would have been better if you disappeared in front of me. SK: If I did- then what would you have done. You would’ve said I went somewhere for a while. you would have dragged out time delaying reality.  you would have played for a few months like nothing happened.  but if you do that- will anything change. SJ: shut up, love can end. Someone can throw me away. But now – in my life there is no Han SK. He tries to go back in line but she stops him. SK: break up if you want to break up – I will get lost if you want. But you cant run away. If you are going to break up – end it properly and then go. SJ: I said it’s over. SK: it’s not over yet. you have to see all of me – not what you want to see in me. you have to see who i really am – all of it.   After seeing everything, if you cant accept me, then you can throw me away and go. You showed me everything so now it’s my turn.

Lies beget more lies and one woman’s hatred spills over ruining everyone and everything in her path. Watching this smile be wiped from his face is not going to be easy. It took him so long to trust again so I have no idea what SK’s betrayal will do to him this time around. Will he have the strength to pick up the pieces of his broken heart to continue on or will he succumb to his shock and run away again. Maybe it’s a good thing this time he fell in love with a woman who is willing to chase him to the ends of the earth to get him back.

E13

Starts from SJ asking you still arent done? why is it taking so long. she tells him to just wait a minute. he gets a text and plays the video. he gets up smiling at seeing SK in her dress. Tommy comes in and sees them and the video playing on the table. Tommy gives SK a look to warn her. SJ asks what is this- why are you here. tommy says I came by for work and heard you are here so I came to say hello. congratulations on your wedding. SJ says I told you not to greet me. SK steps up and asks SJ not to get angry cuz today is a good day. Tommy takes SJ’s phone without him knowing. tommy says excuse me – prepare well for your wedding. then he leaves. SJ asks SK: are you ok. SK: yes.

Tommy took the phone and deleted the video

SJ compliments the dress  -you look really pretty – the detail is a work of art. She asks do you like it. he says yes should we take this. tommy knocks and comes in so SJ asks what is this – why did you come again.  tommy asks to help out for the wedding. SJ asks why should I – I dont need it. SK distracts SJ so tommy can put the phone back. tommy asks him to think it over. see you next time. he leaves.  SK asks if she is ok. SK: yes

YJ asks what happened. did it come over there too?tommy: i deleted it for now. YJ: I will go there now.  Her husband asks what she is doing here. she says I will go to hyomin for a while. He asks why – did anything happen. She says no it’s nothing. I will be back. IH watches and wonders why nothing happened with her brother and the video

SK tells SJ she has to drop by the office. he offers to take her.  she says it’s right next door. I will call later. SJ: then be sure to call. They high five

YJ yells what happened. tommy: before I deleted it shin IH took it without me knowing. YJ: she will send it again. if she knows I deleted it she wont leave it alone. she might have sent it again now. SK comes over and asks what are you talking about – send what? she guesses and YJ confirms it. IH has that video.  tommy says it was sent to MH and SJ. for now both videos have been deleted.  YJ: since she has the file – we dont know how she will react.  Tommy says there is one way. hacking her email. i should look into hackers. SK says even if we delete it from her email – she might have a copy of it saved somewhere else. also she doesnt think hacking is a good option for people like them. YJ: so what do you want to do about it?

IH comes over and throws down her tablet and says are you looking for this? delete it if you want. you erased my brother’s video very well too. YJ gets on her knees and begs for mercy just once. save me – just this one time cover this up – please miss. Tommy asks IH to think it over once. I am sorry – I have no excuses.  YJ: from here on I will really do well. I will really do well. Just this once – please forgive me. IH: forgive? Why beg me for that? all you can do is beg probably -somehow you have to beg and save your lives. cuz that’s how you guys live. why? are you afraid cuz you might lose everything. there is nothing to be scared of. think over it well. you didnt lose anything – all you are doing is going back to the start.  Just cuz you were living with people here (rich people) and mixed in – does it seem like it was yours from the start. all you did was just live pretending to be one of us. also dont try to get my forgiveness by yourself. you guys didn’t do anything wrong to me. what did you guys do wrong. messing up that matchmaking? disgracing my household?  she insults YJ and SK-saying they dont have any scruples/conscience about being thieves and they are two sneaky snakes (gold diggers) who do not know their places and boundaries. all she did was open up a trial for them. Just wait and I will show you what justice is (bring forth their wrongdoings). SK: what is justice? If I am a gold digger– what are you. you approached him too after seeing what he had and was going to marry for business. how is that different from me?  YJ tells SK not to do this – are you crazy. SK says to IH-there is something that was different -your business is big and mine is small-  you have money and I don’t – when you call yours having a proper wedding -I have to hear being called a gold digger. you will never get insulted but I am right now.  One more thing, to you cha SJ is one out of many businesses, but to me he is the whole world. But you lost to me. YJ tells SK: stop it. IH: no keep going – I lost to you? SK says like you said – if you were trying to bring justice – you should have confidently opened up (reveal everything) but you sent it anonymously – why?  (you wanted to say) I am not the one who destroyed this business and I didn’t take away the woman you love oppa – you didn’t want to take responsibility for that. money – prestige-background -you had all those wonderful things but you lost to me. you lost and got angry -cuz you are going crazy – that’s why you are doing this.  IH: you and I have nothing that is different? Should I let you know how something like you and I are different. Whether l lose or not – nothing changes in my life. nothing changes at all. but not you-   like you said – you will lose your whole world. IH leaves.

IH gets in her car and looks pissed

YJ: are you really crazy? what are you going to do. SK: then what should I have done. YJ: You should have begged. to people like that you have to beg. SK says the more I beg she would have wanted to step on me more. she will torment a lot and when it’s no longer fun she will reveal it all then. it’s the same anyway – everything will be found out.  YJ says that’s better – then ending it like this. all this is cuz of you. before you showed up there was no problem. it all got complicated cuz of you. You ruined everything. YJ leaves in anger. SK says to tommy – say what you want to say too.

Tommy brings her some water. Before IH reveals everything –havent you thought of  revealing it all. SK: what about if SJ asks why I am confessing everything now?  what do I reply – IH already knows so she is going to tell you everything – before you hear from someone else, I will confess now. If IH reveals everything, SJ will he shocked. but at least he will have time to prepare his heart. Tommy: whether he will kill you or save you. SK says SJ needs time to make his decision. I will take responsibility for all of it – whatever SJ decides – his decision is and that reason too– all of it. don’t you regret holding hands with me. Tommy: if I didn’t know SJ was royal group’s son so I gave Shin IH another family’s connection. If I did this or if I did that. when love is involved you only think that way huh?but i dont think that – if I declined your offer. SK: why? Aren’t you scared cuz whatever happens will happen now.  Tommy: I am scared. Her phone rings so she takes it. it’s from SJ. SK says into the phone: no I will go home now. Really? you did? Thank goodness. Ok.  Tommy asks did he say nothing at all. She says no. I will be going. He says if something happens call right away. She leaves.

YJ goes home. She looks around at her place

Tommy is in his office sighing

IH is sitting in her office

SK is at home

SK’s mom looks at the article about robert and asks if that person is owner of artemis. AJ verifies it. the mom and SK’s sis ask the dad to look too and he says i already saw it. the mom thinks Cha likes SK now and SK and SJ like each other so much. dad says I will go and come back. He leaves

In the car, Cha remembers how SK made him stand next to him to take pics and smiles

Cha goes to the bakery and sees SK’s dad. he says sorry for ruining the meeting. Her dad says I didn’t do anything good either. Cha says I like your daughter. She is the first one to get my son and I close. i will ask as a favor. i just got through to my son, if the wedding doesnt go through cuz of me – how can I face him again. If I fix our family problem – will you give permission for my SJ. you said you oppose due to our  family trouble – As long as that is settled – what else is there for you to oppose (meaning his son is a great catch)

SJ shows her some gift from robert (a painting) he told SJ to give to SK. she says it’s so pretty. he says we can hang it in our newlywed home. she doesnt look that happy so he asks why her expression is like that from a while ago. SK: what. SJ: it’s cuz you are worried about father arent you?  dont worry – no matter what i have to do – leave it up to me to get permission from your dad. you got my father to change his heart. trust me and leave it up to me.  she gets a call. So does he. Her dad asks to meet him. SK: right now? ok. His dad asks to meet her. SJ: right now? ok. SJ says I will go out for a while and she says I have to go as well. let’s go out together

SK and SJ both arrive separately and each are talking to the other’s dads.

They both go in and both dads are singing together in a singing room. cha says did you arrive. SK and SJ ask how both are here. her dad calls SJ son in law. Both dads call each other in laws. SJ and her dad sing first.  She thanks Cha and he thanks her.  next cha and SJ sing together. SJ thinks: this is the first time I saw you singing father. Cha watches SJ singing and thinks: punk – he is cool.

The two dads are drinking and watching SJ choose a song to sing with SK.

In the car cha and SJ are going together. Cha says to bring SK for dinner tm at home. SJ asks if there will be anything good to eat. cha: we are just going to eat normally. SJ texts SK.

SK is walking home with her dad and gets the text from SJ – to bring her to dinner at home tm. Her dad asks if it was SJ. She says his father wants to have dinner together tm. He asks can you do well- cuz those people are a lot lonelier than us. you will have take care of them a lot and fill them up (their hearts so they wont be lonely). you can do well. SK remembers IH’s warning – you will lose your whole world.

SK gets home and tommy calls. He asks did you meet SJ. SK: yes. tommy: did nothing much happen. She says no. president cha called so we met together. He says then shouldn’t you have called me –I worried all day- my life is on the line like you- don’t you know? she says sorry. tommy: so what did president cha say? tell me in details. SK: we went to the singing room – it was their first time in their lives going to the singing room. they were singing together and it was very awkward. But president cha really liked it and gave permission to marry. And he told my father to give his permission first. Also tm he asked for me to have dinner at his home together. Tommy: are you crying now? SK: no I am not crying. if I cry now I am a bad person (woman with no conscience). Tommy: let’s talk tm again.

SK calls YJ to meet.

YJ goes and meets SK. SK: i have something to ask. tell me what SJ’s condition was after you left him in paris. YJ: why- are you going to leave him. SK: no I wont leave him. YJ says you know – with what kind of heart SJ came to korea. SK: revenge. YJ: but your situation is different. cuz now he knows even if he gets revenge – it doesnt matter. that means…SK interrupts and says it means he cant get revenge as a reason to go on. YJ: but he will find a reason cuz he has to live. SK: did you find it? YJ: i am thinking about it now – there is a way you use well. SK wonders if she is talking about confession but doesnt say the words. YJ: are you done talking? SK: yes. YJ: i will be going. she tells SK about D – SJ’s friend – he will know very well how SJ was after I left him.

YJ walks in to see her husband and IH sees her go in. MH asks what’s going on cuz she didnt call. she asks if he isnt getting off work soon. they sit and talk. he asks if she has something to say. These days you have something going on don’t you. is something going on at home with your brother? it’s ok- tell me – I will help if it’s something I can fix. She asks do you love me. He asks what is this suddenly. She is about to talk and confess, but IH comes barging in. IH says sorry i heard unni came. I have something to ask her so it’s ok to speak to her for a minute right. He says ok. IH asks her to come out for a minute.

YJ goes out to see IH. IH says you are reckless – going to confess? who said you could confess? pretending you are pitiful and pretending to be nice and reveal it all. you cant.That doesnt fit my plan. YJ: wasn’t it your plan to send that video to your brother. IH says thanks for that – for deleting that video. like SK said – that was cowardly.  it could have backfired on me and you stopped it. I didn’t need to get blood on my hands. So I was able to come back to being shin IH. YJ says the shin IH who only thinks about business? if I reveal everything now there might be a problem to the business. you are impressive. IH steps close and says something and leaves. MH comes out and asks what did she say. YJ says it was about the matchmaking. He says it must be bothering IH. he tells YJ to work hard. He asks what she wanted to say a while go. YJ tells herself to tell him-dont push it back anymore. He says you are acting weird these days. Is it cuz I didn’t answer a while ago. I do love you of course. he hugs her and says I love you dear. So trust me and tell me everything that is difficult for you. I don’t like to see you having a hard time. YJ: yes dear

Cha asks his sec if you cleared my schedule for dinner. He says yes cuz you said you had an important appointment. shin IH team leader is waiting for you.

Cha goes to meet IH. They talk business and he says he likes the proposal. He asks what brings her here today. She says I have something to show you

SK calls D and asks to meet later today for a short time but he cant today so they make plans to meet tm. D asks if anything is going on. SK: no nothing.

Cha watches the video of YJ and SK. IH says how many times she struggled over this in her heart. seo YJ – our family just needs to take care of her in our household, but if you take Han SK as a royal group daughter in law, it will blemish your name and cha SJ’s so I couldn’t stand by and watch. He thanks her. she says it’s cuz you and I are business partners. cha: partner? then I will ask one favor. IH: yes just say it. cha: bury this. bury this matter.  as SJ’s father I am asking you as a favor. that kid is different from me. he wont be able to handle/endure it. it will all collapse – him – me – and this business with GN too. you are a business person too arent you. royal group and GN are in the process of getting artemis.  I am asking you as a request– please cover this up.

IH goes out in shock and says – So what is he going to do – let SK in as royal group’s daughter in law.

Cha remembers the video and says that poor kid (his son)

in the car ride over, SJ says even if my father asks this and that – you don’t have to answer if you don’t want. you know that right. She says don’t worry cuz I am comfortable with father now. he says a person who said she is comfortable – just look at her face (cuz she looked nervous). SK: I said I wasnt.

During dinner, cha looks over at them. SJ shows his dad the dates her dad chose for the wedding. Cha asks this quickly. SJ says what’s the point of pushing it back – if I followed my heart- I want to do it right away. SJ tells her he will show her around after dinner -where he played when he was a kid, but his dad offers to show her. SJ: why would you? she says I will go with father-you show me father.

Cha shows her around the room full of toys. she says you must have collected them all. cha: I didnt gather them – i wasnt allowed to throw them away. I threw it away once and that kid disappeared- we looked all over the neighborhood but he wasnt there. I locked the door thinking he was rebelling, but late at night he came carrying all these. he looked all over the neighborhood and found them. in this home – he found a place to put his affection. the doctor said once a day look him in the eye as you live, but I said say those things to the dogs.  I cant do that. for the rest of your life to SJ- can you do what that doctor said. SK: yes father.  cha: do you also have the confidence to cover it up for the rest of your life.Shin IH team leader came by to see me earlier. SK: father. He yells at SK: shut your mouth.  if I followed my heart I want to tell him right away “see? what did I say you pathetic kid – how can you be fooled like a dummy all the time?” what drives me more crazy – that kid wont be able to throw you away. he will die if he is thrown away. if he admits what you did -he will go crazy.  what can he do about his heart that doesnt want to believe it’s true-when I really wanted to believe it’s not true now. Close your mouth for the rest of your life and stick by SJ’s side. just so you will feel at ease– if you reveal to SJ, I wont leave you alone then. She cries and says yes I know – so SJ shi will never know – I will live my life paying for my wrongdoings.

IH sits up and trashes her desk. She remembers what SK said – “you lost to me” and how cha asked her to cover it up

Cha asks SJ to sleep over. SK: why are you like that suddenly. she tells him to do as his father said and sleep over. SJ asks with SK too but cha says just you. SK tells SJ to do that. i will be going now. goodnight. She leaves. Cha asks if he wants a drink.

Cha asks do you like her a lot. SJ says- She has a lot more than me and she gives more than us. I like her. please be good to SK father.

SK tells tommy that IH met cha and cha asked her to bury it all. and he told me to keep my mouth closed and live for the rest of my life. I might become royal group’s daughter in law and I can keep my promise to you. now it’s all done huh? now I just need to do well and there wont be any problem with SJ and his father. Tommy asks do you want to go to paris now. SK: what are you talking about – I just said everything turned out well. tommy: I will take on all the responsibility for the cost/expenses and the situation here too – I will take responsibility for it and handle matters. She asks what are you saying. tommy: what are you thinking? you came all this way cuz of ambition. desire, etc. so you have to keep going till the end like that. but right now you arent. SK: what does that mean?  tommy: you said you have to think of pride/dignity as poison here. are you doing that now? to do that  -doesnt it seem like you love your pride/dignity too much? right now every part of you is being truthful. if you do that and something goes wrong – what will happen to you? SK: are you cowering – are you afraid that you might fail. She brings up what he did in the past in 2009. after failing – I dont think about afterwards-cuz there is no point anyway.  He laughs and asks did you investigate that too. She says I do that too -after failing, I wont think about it. I will be going

Tommy says to himself -For the first time, after failing, I am thinking about it. me.

SJ puts his dad to bed. Cha: I lacked too much so that’s why your mom did that. not cuz she hated you – cuz she hated me. I am sorry. SJ cries and watches his dad cry

SJ goes to his room and texts SK. She gets a pic of him in his room and smiles. He gets a text back. SK: You did well. He goes to sleep.

SK looks at his photo

IH looks around the mess in her office.

YJ goes to meet her husband to drop off some paperwork. YJ asks if he is going to artemis. He says yes there is a briefing. She asks if he is in charge of this project. He says yes. She says you know father’s expectations are big – you know that right. MH: I know

YJ walks out and gets a text from tommy to meet

IH goes and tells her brother she will go. She wants to be in charge of the project. IH: Don’t you trust me. He says no you can go. He hands over the brief

SK meets with D. he congratulates her for the wedding. heard you set a date. SK: yes thank you for a lot of things. D: I am the one who should be thankful. I am really grateful to you. I didnt even imagine a day would come when SJ got married.  And it was really hard for him to resolve his issues with his father too.  she asks how SJ was in the past- after cutting off ties with his father in paris. after it ended with his girlfriend. Can you tell me

YJ hears what IH said to cha. tommy says that cha told SK to bury it and live the rest of her life like that. and he also told IH to cover it up cuz it involves the business. YJ wonders if IH will cover it up. tommy says since Cha mentioned how her business is at stake-it wont be easy for IH to reveal it. but watching SK become the royal group daughter in law – it wont be easy for IH to accept. He gets a call and is shocked

SJ is smiling and looking at photos of SK and his dad during robert’s gathering. Moon asks do the shareholders know – that you are being paid by them and just staring at these photos. SJ: ahchoo.  Moon announces IH arrived for the meeting

Tommy says how IH just arrived at artemis just now – to have a meeting with SJ. YJ says MH was supposed to go to that meeting. She remembers how she told IH that if I reveal everything now there will be a problem with the business and what IH whispered to her – do you think i am like this cuz I am a business person. YJ says we failed. We forgot  to factor in one thing. That Shin IH is a woman.

SJ goes into his meeting with IH. He says I want to formally apologize about the matchmaking cuz I knew about it. I am sorry about it. she says it’s ok – it’s what our parents were doing. I am ok.  I came to talk about the project. he says he received the paperwork. She says let’s watch the monitor and talk.

D talks about 2006 christmas-how much fun he had with SJ in paris. I came back and found out in korea – that his girlfriend suddenly left before spring. SK: so SJ didn’t tell you?

IH talks about businesthe art center and how it will be connected to incheon airport and then shows the next video to SJ – it’s one with SK and YJ talking. SJ: why is this here. YJ: you said it with your own mouth -YYJ – the woman in france. cha SJ’s woman from the past. the man I threw away cuz of business was cha SJ

D: it wasn’t cuz he didn’t tell me. SK: then what? D: SJ…

YJ: back then Cha SJ almost died – you know PTSD. he only loved two women after being born -but the two of them were after money and approached him. those two are friends

IH checks his reaction, but SJ smiles and says: what is this? there are two people who resemble people I know

D: SJ wont acknowledge reality. Cuz if he acknowledges reality he wont be able to live

End

Preview

There is a small wedding. SJ: please accept this ring as a token of my love. But SK says- I have something to say. The minister says if there is anyone who has an objection to this wedding speak now or forever hold his peace. SJ says there is no one who objects. minister asks the bride – do you have an objection? SJ: Hurry and say you don’t have an objection. She says I lied to you.  he starts to cry.

*I hated IH so much in this episode. I hope her business venture fails big time with the royal group and her dad kicks her out of the business from here on. she doesnt deserve to be working for GN and she certainly doesnt deserve to be loved by her family. she didnt even stop to think about her brother’s feelings and how hurt he would be to learn the truth about YJ. More than that, she only showed SJ that video to break him up with SK. winning was more important to IH than other people and their feelings. IH has to be the worst character in a drama cuz everything she did – it was done with malice. everything SK did was to protect her love- even her lies. so the clear winner has always been SK when it comes to being a decent human being.

We should enjoy scenes like this now while we can cuz not sure how much longer we get to see them. The truth is out there and it’s only a matter of time before it finds the person it could hurt the most. The thing about keeping secrets people don’t take into account is -just cuz you decide to keep your mouth shut doesn’t mean there isn’t a way for them to slip out. In the most cruel way ever – out of pure spite and hatred.

*Almost had a heart attack at the end there. Thank goodness for Tommy’s long legs.

E12

Starts from the video of SK and YJ playing. IH watches the video and is stunned. YJ comes in with drink and fruit and says your bother is very late. Do you need anything else. IH: no. YJ: is something going on at the office. IH: no I just have some work to go. When YJ leaves IH says “there was a snake (as in a sneaky deceitful woman). Two of them.”  She looks at SK’s resume.

In his car, they high five. SK tells him you did really well today. SJ: if I did well shouldn’t you give me a prize. SK: prize? He pulls her close and kisses her. I have a prize to give you too. Let’s go

Cha remembers how he told SJ he should drink and then go. SJ stayed to do that. Cha laughs looking at SK’s pic from her album

IH: sneaky snakes – now I understand the things I didnt get. I get it, but are you playing around with the Shin name.  she crumples up SK’s resume and tosses it.

DH comes home and looks for IH. He goes in and sees her and asks if what she wanted to discuss is urgent. what is it. IH asks if he met YJ first when she did pick up and delivery at Sera’s boutique. When you married how much did you love her. he thinks IH is like that cuz of Cha SJ and tells her to “just forget it cuz it’s nothing you need to try to understand. dont think about it anymore.  father is coming the day after tm. you wont hear good things unless you get over it quickly. you know what i am saying right? she gets up to leave

On her way out she gives YJ a dirty look so YJ asks why. IH doesn’t answer and just leaves. YJ looks at the tablet IH is holding. DH comes over to tell YJ to find someone way better than CSJ for IH. YJ: ok

IH walks out and sees SJ and SK going inside his home. She realizes how close to YJ he lived

SJ says her passport came out. SJ: you have to fill up the passport with me. SK: ok. She asks to eat dinner with her parents tm. SJ: did father say he will give me permission. SK: that is up to you. SJ: I wont be afraid. I will make sure he likes me until he gives his permission.  She is about to go home but he says where are you going and spins her around

Cha finds out newspaper articles are going out that CEO JTC is Cha’s son. Cha laughs

Tommy reads the news and says SK’s name and smiles

YJ asks why tommy accepted SK’s offer. SK says cuz if he puts aside his feelings and thinks about it- helping me is advantageous for him. though that match is over, he still has stuff to gain from royal group. YJ: how can he trust you? SK: I dont know whether he trusts me or not –  he said I was like him. SK says he is similar to us – in the sense that just like them he rose up from the bottom. YJ asks do you believe him. SK : what tommy said is correct – people around here dont believe without contracts – should I get a contract from him. YJ says he deleted the video for sure? SK: yes he deleted in front of me. YJ: I saw the article about C SJ – what are you going to do now. SK says look into wedding halls and stuff.  YJ warns that Cha treats parent and child relationship as business so he approved of Shin IH. but you dont have her family background or talent so of course he opposed. no matter what make yourself someone necessary for  business. that’s the only. do well. no. You have to do well. cuz on you – there are two lives hanging on the line.  YJ leaves

YJ told her brother how SK made a deal with tommy and he took it. YJ thinks it’s strange. Cuz tommy didn’t have a reason to do that – after he came here – he is more like people around here than them. the brother says from tommy’s position what SK said wasnt incorrect. YJ: tommy is someone who doesnt believe in words. I am like that too.  just cuz SK went over there and pleaded -why would  he get on the same boat. it’s strange. her bro asks then are you saying there is something else. YJ: yes there is for sure

SK goes to meet Cha. He asks what again. She asks if he has time tonight. She says how SJ is having dinner with her parents and wanted Cha to come along. she isnt doing this to get his approval. It was hard for SJ to go to the memorial  but he was trying to extend his hand out first so please just once couldn’t you accept that hand first. She gives the dinner location and leaves. cha verifies with his sec that if two sets of parents meet for a meal it’s for their children’s future wedding.

SK goes to ask her dad to go. He says it’s not cuz I don’t like SJ. She says I know what you are worried about. but I am trying very hard. I even invited his father tonight. I will be good to him and receive love and live. her dad reminds her how SJ and cha lived apart 6 yrs so it will be hard. SK: Don’t I look like I feel better these days. you said I looked like i was having a hard time. but dont i really look happy these days. Just trust me once wont you?

SK goes out and gets a call from SJ

Cha remembers what SK said – just accept his hand first please. he asks for the car to pull over a while

Cha stops by the bakery to talk to her dad – Han. They both share their troubles about their kids. cha: back then you said there was a man who liked your daughter and you drank with him. Han: yes.  cha: then have you met his parents (to talk about the upcoming marriage)? Han: she wants me to do that but there is too much of a class difference.  plus that family is a mess. cha says family problems wont work cuz it’s a headache. Han: why are you asking? are you going to meet the other parents? cha: he wants me to but the girl’s family has nothing at all. Han: you would never allow that kind of marriage would you? you must have already met and had a meal if you already spoke about it. Han advises cha to give in cuz what’s the point in winning over your child. cha: if only i could beat him.

SK goes to pick out SJ’s outfit. He looks nervous. She touches his face and says don’t be nervous. everything will turn out well. They speak French. He asks your father will show up for sure right? She says yes – he will for certain.

Her dad arrives and then Cha arrives. They meet each other and ask why they are here. they each say they are here for their son and daughter. They ask each other for their kid’s names. Both are shocked

SJ is walking in with SK and her mom and sis. SJ asks the mom should we go to the singing room today after our meal or to the movies. They decide to think about it later

Both dads are fighting. Cha says her dad doesn’t have anything and he says I do. They bring up what her dad did causing that trouble in front of the store. Her dad says I don’t want to accept your great son either cuz Cha said something about SK sticking to his son. SJ goes in to break up the fight and takes his dad out.

her parents ask why didn’t you say he was the royal group’s son. SK: if I tell you all that i was afraid you wouldnt look at SJ shi. The dad tells SK to give up on the marriage cuz he cant watch her get hurt from cha since she wont be able to deal with cha. Sorry for ruining the meeting. He walks away

SJ asks how did you know to come. Cha says I was invited. SJ thinks his dad came to make a mess of things. cha:why do you always say I was the one in the wrong. SJ says it’s obvious what went down  as soon as they met cuz cha is good at inflicting pain. cha explains I was going to try to be nice rejecting her but he said he cant send his daughter to a home with problems and rejected me first. SJ: what he said was correct. our family has lots of problems. SK says to stop. she comes over and apologizes to cha -for things turning out this way cuz of me. I just wanted you to make SJ happy. but i didnt think about you and my father. i will apologize sincerely. I am sorry. she says to SJ-you must have been overwhelmed. i am sorry. Then she makes SJ say sorry to his dad.you were wrong. he came as a favor to me and came all this way thinking of you. so how could you just blame him for doing wrong. cha: that’s what i am saying.  then she says for cha to apologize -you too. i know you were taken back. but it’s true – you did ruin the meeting. SJ: didnt i say that? SK: My father said sorry to me and left and I said sorry to him too. So why don’t you two say sorry to each other. She makes SJ say sorry first. SJ: why should i say sorry. She gives him a look so SJ says sorry in English. She looks at Cha and he says me too in English. Both men are surprised they each heard an apology from the other.   SJ asks if his dad is going to Robert’s event and his dad says I am going to that so SJ says let’s meet then. SK apologizes and thanks cha and leaves

SJ: are you still mad – I did everything you asked. She says how his father tried hard so why cant you see that. SJ: did i do something wrong again? SK: we have to try more. SJ: what if it doesnt work.  my father is not an easy person. so i am scared. What if you cant put up with him and run away – I am scared of that. she holds his hand and says don’t you remember my promise- no matter what happens I wont run away. They hold hands as he drives

YJ meets tommy. He says I didn’t know we would meet again. He wonders how she went all the way up to GN group’s wife. She says that’s the same as you. you didnt even graduate college huh? he doenst answer. she asks if he erased the video for sure. He says of course. She asks why he took SK’s side. it’s unstable. do you really believe she will succeed? you arent someone who believes in that stuff. He asks why YJ helped SK. she says you saw the video and know what our relationship clearly is. but that’s not the case for you. tommy:  I was thinking about it – if I liked how resilient SK was or cuz we started from the same place. YJ:  do you like her. tommy: liking someone – doesn’t that not suit me? YJ: whatever the reason – we are all on the same boat. then see you again. he mentions how IH came twice to ask about SK. it looks like it was hard on her to accept what’s going on now.  so you have to keep taking care of her for the time being. YJ is about to walk out and sees the tablet cover– same as IH’s.

IH is meeting YJ’s former boss and asked about Seo YJ info. The old resume for Seo YJ will be faxed to IH’s office

YJ goes to the office to wait for IH and the fax about YJ came in. she is waiting in the office and sees the fax. She walks over to look when IH comes over. IH asks what is up and takes the fax and folds it in half so YJ cant see it. YJ says how your brother told me to look into your match again so I will find someone you like. trust me and leave it up to me. IH: i have a lot of work. YJ: father will arrive tm around 11am. will you come by for lunch? IH: yes.

IH sits down and reads the info about YJ. She sees the reference from Cha. So she realizes even Cha knows all about YJ. She crumples the fax

Cha is in the car and remembers how SJ said sorry and smiles. He remembers SK’s dad and asks the driver to take him to tommy

Tommy apologizes to cha again but cha asks about SK. what kind of woman is she. you must know well since you investigated her.  Tommy says SJ and SK sincerely like each other. so if cha wants to mend fences with SJ it would be good to approve SK. tommy says from his experiences in matchmaking –  if two people like each other like this so genuinely-the result of forcing them apart was not good.  He mentions how SK doesn’t lack that much (meaning she has some qualifications to be SJ’s wife). cha says she isnt as good as IH though. IH was perfect for SJ and as a daughter in law. Cha says SJ intends to bring SK to president of artemis Robert’s event so will she be able to do well

DH meets his dad at the airport. Shin just arrived from paris. he says president robert arrives at 1pm. Shin tells him about the outlet.  DH says he almost has cha convinced for the other business venture. what was helpful was find out CTJ was cha’s son. how DH will put CSJ in charge of something.

DH takes him home and his family greets him.

IH brings her tablet over to the dinner table and it makes YJ nervous. YJ says to herself – the cover is the same – that’s all.

Tommy finds out about the painting that was delivered when he calls the wrong person to thank them cuz they said they never sent one. he realizes that it wasn’t sent by the person he thought. He asks his sec to find out who bought it. he calls SK and asks if anything happened. She say no.  why. did something happen. He says it’s nothing.

IH keeps looking at the tablet then back at YJ and then her family. IH finally speaks and says I have something to tell you father. she is about to show the video but her brother gets a call that Robert arrvied. Shin tells them about artemis and their outlet.  It’s a deal that they need royal group’s help for. there is more interest cuz JTC is royal group’s son. until they sign there is a lot left to do. It’s a chance GN might not get again. If we succeed in outlets we can succeed in becoming global. He tells IH to not think of other stuff and focus on work. IH looks conflicted.

When she is alone YJ wonders if it’s not what she thought. am I assuming too much.  IH comes over and asks it’s been 3 yrs since you came to our home right. How is it. what do you like the most. what is the most uncomfortable.  YJ asks why did ask suddenly. IH drops hints she knows something. IH: business was always first. you know that i was going to get married cuz of business. ever since i was young i learned business came first. all this time that was only natural. but now that is really uncomfortable. i must be human. How much longer can I hold it in. YJ is shaking. IH walks away so YJ wonders – what are you. do you really know something?

SJ tells SK about how he plans to introduce her  to Robert – the president of artemis– he is like a father to me. dont be nervous. The reason why he is coming this time is cuz of outlets in korea. Royal group and GN are working together to do that. SJ: I want to introduce you to him for sure. cuz he is like my father. I would like it if you got along with robert more than cha. dont be nervous. robert is different from cha and is open minded. SK: I will do well. I really want to do well.  SJ comments she is doing it again – getting all worked up to make a big deal of it. all you have to do is say hi. SK: I want to do that well cuz I am your girlfriend.  to make a good impression from the start. you have to help – you will right.

SJ and SK walk through stores and he fills her in about artemis. stuff like how there is over 50 brands/variety. she mentions how robert uses wine, pens, bags, fragrance -only artemis brand. SJ: that’s right.

SJ says robert likes hyundai art gallery. SK names off the art robert likes. SK takes notes. They stand in front of a painting of a couple with the bride’s arms interlinked around the guy’s neck and they copy the pose. SJ says the arms are short. SK asks: Is this what Robert likes too. SJ: No – me. He keeps kissing her over and over.

SJ tells her about the wine Robert likes the most. the most expensive. they drink some and he asks what she thinks. she decribes the taste favorably. SJ talks about a winery in france and describes it. SK says it feels like we are there now.

SK looks up Robert and does research on the internet. She gets a call from tommy

Tommy takes her to a bookstore that has info about fashion, art, design and every book of artemis brand from france 1994. Tommy says this is the chance for her to win over cha and SJ’s peers. do you know why they brought a woman into the business meeting in the movie pretty woman. business is what people have to do but need emotion. the most important thing to do that is balance. SK: I can do well so trust me. She asks what he called about last time. he says just focus on work. He smiles looking at her.

YJ tells tommy IH had the same tablet cover. he asks if that means she switched them. YJ says If the original video file was on this doesnt it feel unnerving. they finish each other’s sentences from here. he says if IH already knows, YJ says IH wont be able to reveal it now. he says cuz what GN has on the line with royal is too big.  YJ says IH wont let it go past her father but there is no way to know what IH will do next after the outlet project is done

Sec Moon is reporting to SJ about robert’s event. Moon gets a call. He called SK “Mrs” so SJ asks why are you talking to SK . Moon : you dont need to know. i cant tell you cuz it’s her personal call.  for personal calls. SJ asks why are you taking personal calls with her.  Moon wont tell and says sorry and runs off. SJ repeats “Mrs”

SJ keeps bugging SK to find out why SK and sec Moon spoke.   SJ:  what was it. SK: I had some favor to ask. SJ: what favor- ask me. why tell him. what was it. She asks what do you think of this dress. He says it’s pretty. She goes to try it on but he sees a wedding dress and smiles.

She comes out in the outfit and asks how it looks. he says it looks good. it’s pretty. She practices how to introduce herself in French. He asks if she prepared it and thanks her. for trying so hard. SK: that’s nothing to be grateful for – it’s only natural (I should do it). being next to you, I dont want to embarrass you. also i want to look good in father’s eyes and get his approval so you have to help me. she takes his hands and repeats what he did when he thought she had been sleeping. SJ: you werent sleeping then? she goes to change

SK’s sis looks at the clothes and says it’s different level from us. AJ and the sis watches SK practice speaking French in the mirror.

SJ introduces the shin family to Robert. IH speaks to him in French and impresses cha. SJ asks Moon where SK is. Moon says driver Kim is bringing her. Robert is handed a bottle of wine and he comments on the drawing on the label. moon explains that CEO cha’s fiancee Han SK drew it. cuz before there were articles about spider web drawings for artemis and it upset CEO cha so she drew it.  Moon announces SK came. SJ goes over and escorts her over and introduces her as his fiancee to Robert.  SK speaks in French and introduces herself. Robert talks about the wine label. She made a good impression overall so IH looks annoyed.

They all gather around the wine table. They are speaking French. SK replies to him in French.  Robert makes a toast for artemis and royal group. and love between SJ and SK. Reporters take photos. Shin family has to move back cuz they are in the way. Reporter asks IH: weren’t you supposed to marry JTC. IH: I told you I wasn’t. SK invites cha over and makes SJ and cha take photos standing together and SK stands next to cha.

Cha and the Shin family are saying goodbye as they walk out. Shin says I am envious of your daughter in law. Cha says it’s still far off. They bow to each other saying you worked hard. see you next time. Shin says SK has business sense and is smart. she has what it takes to win cha over. DH says she wasn’t empty headed after all. She did have something (meaning SK had the needed quality to fit in well). IH says in her head she had talent – to be a sneaky snake

YJ goes to IH’s office and goes through her stuff. She finds the tablet design drawing. She asks the guy about it and he says how IH ordered a tablet cover like that not long ago.

IH goes to her car and watches as SJ runs out saying how pleased he was with SK. SJ spins SK around and kisses her on the cheek. he says let’s hurry and go cuz I made reservations. SK: where are we going. SJ: just follow me. They drive off looking happy.

In her car, IH makes a call to tommy. IH: I have no interest in what you planned. I will tell you one thing. You failed. His sec comes over and says that painting was bought by GN group.

SK gets a call from tommy asking did anything happen. She says what? nothing happened. He asks where are you now. she says at elle dress shop. He says how IH is acting strange. SK: why? what did she say. He says I will call back so stay there.  SK is given a wedding dress to try on so she puts her phone in her coat pocket and leaves the area.

YJ gets a call from tommy but ignores it cuz DH comes over. She asks if it ended well. He doesn’t answer and asks for a drink. He walks over to the bathroom and he gets a text from IH so YJ gets it. it’s the video of YJ and Sk. She takes his phone and walks away with it and plays it. then she deletes it

SK is changing into the wedding dress while SJ paces. He asks are you still not done. SK says almost

YJ keeps calling SK but she isnt picking up.

YJ gets a call from Tommy. she says it was the video. Tommy asks if IH sent it. YJ says yes I deleted it from my husband’s phone cuz it was sent to him. he says she probably didnt just send it to him only.  did you call  SK. YJ: she wont answer. Tommy runs out on foot to the dress shop where SK is

IH sends the video to SJ. He asks SK why is it taking so long. I want to hurry and see it. she says almost. He gets the text and video. He presses play. he is about to look but the curtains open and he sees SK and smiles. He puts his phone down as the video plays without audio.

Tommy asks which room SJ is in right now. The attendant tells him

SJ walked over to SK so he doesn’t know the video is playing

Tommy stops and takes a breath. He walks in and sees SJ busy with SK. Tommy looks over at the phone playing the video. His eyes go round in shock. SJ looks over at tommy.

Like it or not there is a new SK in town and she doesnt take any prisoners. She is going to make up her own rules and live by them. No more bossing her around cuz she is now the one leading the charge. Where she suddenly got all this moxie I have no idea, but I bet what ignited it was his love for her and her fear of losing it.

This episode threw me off a little bit cuz I’m not sure I like where this is all headed. I really wish Tommy had been a little more prudent and learned what a delete button looked like once he made up his mind about SK. Especially since IH turned into one nosy super spy overnight.

E11

After SJ introduces SK as his girlfriend and announces that they are getting married, he asks DH- you know SK works at GN don’t you so please take good care of her.

in a room, his dad yells at him for getting revenge like this -humiliating him like in this way. SJ: would I love a woman for revenge. am I a crazy guy? I love SK shi. Cha says if it’s love then you two can just live together well on your own so why come here.  SJ points out how people are talking about his upcoming marriage (through the matchmaking) so “I came so you would wake up”

The shin family turns their wrath on Tommy. DH’s mom asks what happened cuz he said they didnt need to worry about that woman so Tommy says sorry over and over. DH got mad cuz rumors are going to spread that GN was spurned by royal group. more than that SK is a part timer in his company so how could someone like her ruin IH’s matchmaking. tommy tries to talk but DH tells him to shut up. IH tells her brother not to do that cuz the more he reacts to this matter she gets more insults her way. tommy says sorry and asks for time to hurry and do something but she says dont say sorry either. cuz nothing happened. more than anything i lost interest in CSJ

* am I the only one who thinks the actress playing Mrs Shin looks really tacky – her crazy hair and outfits –  I dont get how we are supposed to believe she is of wealth and class

SJ’s dad says “love? you don’t really like this woman – you are trying to torment me. SJ: what does that mean. Cha: cuz she is the type i hate the most. after what happened to you (before) there is no way you would like a woman like this again. he says to SK: you are that kind of woman. you think he is like this cuz he really likes you? the moment i acknowledge you i bet he will take it back right away. SJ asks her to go outside. she asks to go together but he repeats his request. his dad asks her if SK graduated properly and what her parents do. SJ: hurry and go outside. he takes SK out and asks her to wait a little while. He goes back in and they fight. his dad asks what did I do that was so wrong – did i starve you? did I not educate you? you grew up with everything you needed. SJ: you didnt want to know what I really wanted

IH comes over and says to SK “congratulations. the situation got a little funny. it’s no big deal so do well.”

In the other room, DH asks tommy-how are you going to take responsibility  – didn’t you suspect at all. How could you let us be humiliated in front of all those people. SK stands in the hallway between them and says “YJ  – this is what it means for us to go into cheongdamdong huh”

SJ – you pushed for this match on purpose didnt you? you knew YJ was GN group’s daughter in law and still did this.  to be connected with that family – to torment me. His dad yells that’s his life’s wish to do that. every time you open your mouth you say I did wrong-but not living the way I asked you to – that’s you. SJ: I am able to breathe now cuz i lived not doing what you wanted. if i stayed in your home i would have died from suffocation. this is why you and I cant work. his dad says I feel the same way – I dont know where you came from – I am sick of this too

DH scolds tommy and says he is not a designer. that his life hung back and forth with each matchmaking deal like a madam T. that he shouldnt have believed in tommy.

DH walks out and SK bows to him. DH:  now you will probably be quitting cuz you are CTC’s fiancee. The mom walks out and says this is ridiculous.

Tommy comes out but cant say anything to SK cuz SJ comes out right then. SJ: you saw right? so back off (meaning don’t try to keep pursuing a match between IH and him and step away from the deal he had with Cha). Cha comes out so tommy apologizes to the dad. dad: what did you do except step over your boundary to make a deal

SJ asks are you ok? You were shocked huh? SK says no – where are we going now. SJ: don’t ask and let’s just go.

Tommy goes to his office and gets a report from his spy. the spy says the woman in front of SK’s home – last night that woman and SK were acting a little strange. Tommy: strange? what was? The spy taped them cuz he didn’t think he could explain so tommy watches and sees that woman is yj

SJ slowly explains to SK about where it all went wrong with his dad. starting from when I was ten yrs old, when I saw my father I couldn’t breathe properly – he left home after my parents divorced. then he showed up in front of my school to pick me up. after staying a few days together he took me back home. after that I didnt see him.  Do you know why he took me away? SK:why? SJ: to be paid (payment for divorce settlement).  after he took me away secretly he asked for compensation as much as he wanted. to a ten yr old my father told me all of that. Then he told me if someone says they love you don’t believe it cuz it means they will use you. starting from then that word love was the most cruel. so when someone says that word ( love) my heart wonders if it’s real – starting from then it’s hell – always suspicious and nervous. But one night some woman said the opposite of love is –not i dont love you -not i wont use you– for the sake of the other person there is nothing you can do. SK cries listening cuz it was her words in the letter he is repeating

130112 청담동 앨리스 E11 HDTV 720p x264 aac mp4-Random[00-29-10] 130112 청담동 앨리스 E11 HDTV 720p x264 aac mp4-Random[00-29-22] 130112 청담동 앨리스 E11 HDTV 720p x264 aac mp4-Random[00-29-34]

He goes over and kneels and gives her a ring. SJ: You showed me that there are people in the world not to fear. Will you marry me? He holds out the ring and she cries. she gets a call from tommy. She looks at the caller name and then back at SJ. She says wait a minute and takes her phone and goes to the bathroom

She watches the video of her conversation with YJ that night. Tommy says she has two choice – paris or hell. Decide by tm.

SJ knocks and asks Are you ok. It was too sudden today huh. I am normally a pro at running away. I can never do something like this (matchmaking deal) when it’s pushed on me. to tell the truth – going to paris too – I ran away -from my father and that home. for many years while living in that home I thought “if I leave here -there will be my real home. Someone to greet me saying “you came. you worked hard. you did well. ” I thought if I just find my home I will be happy but there wasn’t a place like that anywhere in the world. in my life I thought something like that didnt exist. but now I found it. you are my home. I thought there wont be one, but I kept looking and looking– you are my home. I know all this is sudden so I will wait until you can accept. She wipes her tears and stands up.

She opens the door and goes out. she looks at him and says if one day I disappear suddenly in front of you tell me you will die right away that day. it doesnt matter if it’s a lie – just tell me that. SJ: why are you like that suddenly. SK: I wont say anything about it later. just tell me that. SJ: you really wont say anything about? if you promise you wont. SK shi –  If you suddenly disappear in front of me one day, I will die right at that moment for certain. She asks put the ring on my finger. he does. SK: I will promise too – I will never leave you suddenly. If you run away I will go looking for you. even if you tell me to leave I will stick by your side. he cries and nods

Tommy throws something out of anger. his assistant asks why are you like this – everything will work out. he says you think it’s funny too huh? what kind of designer makes threats over money. from the first time I saw han SK i knew she was not going to be good news.  do you remember -I told you before SK reminded me of someone. It’s me. she is the same as me. I was stepped on in the past just like now. we were both stepped on and now we have to step on them the same. For people like us how will it end

YJ hears SJ is marrying SK. DH says we have been backstabbed. even Cha seemed shocked. did you know something cuz she is your friend. YJ: I didn’t know. if I knew i would have said. what did miss say (Meaning IH). He says she gave up right there. what else could she do with a guy like that

YJ goes out and greets IH. I heard what happened-I was shocked too cuz I didnt know about them. dont take it too hard. it will pass soon. IH: tell me about han SK without leaving a single thing out

IH runs to her car and calls SK. YJ: what happened. I heard you are getting married. why arent you answering. IH asked about you now. SK asks to meet now

IH is alone and remembers her conversation from earlier. YJ: what abut SK. IH: cuz I don’t get her. YJ: even i think it doesnt make sense. but JTC wasnt that great -there were some bad rumors. from the start he didnt fit as your match.  IH: it sounds like you aren’t trying to help me. IH remembers the present SJ brought YJ. IH: what is Seo YJ.

SK shows YJ the video tommy sent. YJ: what is this. how did this happen. SK: tommy sent it. he must have put a spy on me. Cuz I was getting in the way of the match so he was trying to get rid of me. YJ: this is  the end. it’s over.  SK: he opened two paths. Paris or hell. YJ: hell? that’s what happens in the end. people say that – girls like us (one who starts from bottom) will end up going to hell in the end. SK: you did something wrong. YJ: what does that mean? SK: You said love was first so why did you do that. When his dad came to meet you – why did you admit (your wrong) right away and step away. what you started first – your love and ambition/desire – why deduct it. you made yourself a woman who looked at money and approached him. that’s why it held you back (held your ankles) all this time. hell? Come to your senses. You told me not to cower cuz we didn’t have anything to start with anyway so we always get suspicions. But if we admit that on our own then what we went after disappears for real. I wont do it the way you did.  with my love, objective, etc.  I will get acknowledgement and go into cheongdamdong -doing it my way.

SJ repeats what he said there to D- about how he announced SK is his gf and they are getting married. D: so what did they do? SJ: they all opened their mouths -esp Cha. you should have seen it? D: what did we say? SJ: that I was rebelling. how could he react like that – what illness does he have? D: why did you do it? SJ: what? D: why say you are going to get married that way? SJ: then how do i do it? D: You should have done it separately and met him. why cause such a big mess.  SJ: I told you they were going around talking about my marriage. D: are you afraid? you formally introduce her so he might oppose again. that’s why you did it quickly that way. You cant settle things between your dad and you this way. you want to resolve this. if you do – from the start you should have done it properly…..SJ tells him to stop. Cuz  today I formally proposed to SK and promised to marry. are you going to ruin such a good day

SK says I liked Cha SJ when i thought he was sec Kim, but after finding out he was the CEO I liked him more. I admit it, but what’s so wrong with that. like you said love is everything – he has everything I want – love and money. I will get both. wanting to succeed in business is me and wanting to have love is me as well. You were wrong. Love and business can mix. YJ: impossible. SK: it is possible – I will make it possible.  YJ: you wont be able to – if you do you will end up losing both. SK: business to protect love. My business from here on is to protect SJ’s love. pretending to be innocent/nice, going to throw it away. confession? I wont do it.  Marriage – I will do it. with the image cha SJ wanted all his life, I will protect him.  from here on it’s SK’s secret diary. Now you help me so I can protect your place. If I marry SJ let’s live the rest of our lives not meeting. you understand right. Where in this world is a woman who can live seeing the woman who used to be her husband’s woman in the past .

Tommy is told a guest came. IH goes in says my brother was too harsh yesterday. Tommy says it was all my mistake. IH says I am someone who cant stand when I don’t get something so help me understand. Suddenly there is a knock. He excuses himself for a bit and leaves her alone. She looks down at the paperwork and picks up the video of YJ and SK and is about to press play when the sec comes back to ask if she wants a drink. IH: I have an appt so I will come back next time

Tommy goes and meets SK. T: did you decide? which is it -Paris or hell? SK: I didn’t come to sell everything I came to make a proposition. She says how the matchmaking between royal group and GN is over. cuz CSJ isnt the type who would marry cuz his dad made him and also SYJ is involved. as you saw. so the person who has to reply now is not me but you. Which side is it – royal group or GN. she brings up his deal with royal group and ask  Who can settle that. Tommy: you think that’s you. she says yes. tommy: let’s just say CSJ is crazy now but what about his father (meaning how are you going to get to him). SK: it’s possible cuz you are going to help. tommy: what? what am I going to do? SK: SYJ said – to come into cheongdamdong to think like people here. I will talk like people here. help me. tommy: why should I? SK: it’s simple- to you what is more advantageous.   He says you saw too many – this happens in dramas all the time. she is poor but the nice girl falls in love with a rich guy. tries to convince the wealthy in laws. then one day there is a happy ending. but you  – you are poor but not a nice girl. also you dont innocently love CSJ (meaning she likes the money) So you think you will have a happy ending by convincing the in law. you think that will work? SK: then what does my ending have to be. as a woman who went after a guy for his money. She lumps the 3 of them together -tommy, YJ, and her. if you tried to climb a tree you shouldnt have – get off and die. (basically saying did you do everything you did to get here to just get taken down without a fight) if she thought this was all she was going to get out of it (just being taught a lesson), she wouldnt have even started. She says you are right. I am not the sweet innocent girl now. If I was that girl I would have truthfully confessed and begged for forgiveness.  but i wont – i’m not a nice innocent girl but a poor bad girl. a poor bad girl would never confess. even if she had to keep it as a burden in her heart forever. I wont stop. Tommy: What if you fail. SK: then I will had to admit. You haven’t failed yet either. If it suits you to play the madam then it cant be helped. I will give you two days. She leaves. For the first time she leaves him flabbergasted

The sec tells him IH left and will come back. He sits and says SK’s name

IH is working and remembers that video again.

SK: you want to go to paris for the wedding. SJ says she can study in paris and he can work there again. SK: do you want to leave Korea? SJ: it’s cuz I thought you would like to study again. SK: so are we going to have the wedding in paris just the two of us? SJ: what are you talking about.   He lists her whole family and their friends to invite including sec moon. SK: what about your dad.  He interrupts and talks about where their home should be in paris and what they can do on the weekends like read books and take walks.  She gets a text from his dad to meet tm at 5

His dad asks about her parents jobs and home. Cha: Are you really going to get married –can you stand it? only you will get hurt cuz he is doing this to rebel. She says she doesnt care why SJ is doing it cuz she knows what he is acting like this. she asks you dont know do you. you dont have any interest in him do you. have you ever taken an interest and asked him once why he is doing that. Cha gets angry and says: What do you know to talk like that. he walks out on her

sec Moon, D, AJ and SK’s sis replay the video of SJ spinning SK and say they should have kissed then. moon: she just got the confession so how could they kiss. AJ: if she accepted they became a couple so they should have acknowledged that with a kiss. that’s what they all do. moon: so that’s how you acknowledge it. the sis wonders if SJ can do skinship properly cuz he seems to be so timorous (around SK).  D says you don’t have to worry that so AJ asks did they already do it. D smiles. SK comes over and asks what they are all doing here

SK talks to D alone. SK says she knows how SJ is getting consulted from D so D cant freely talk. but she cant just sit by and do nothing. she knows that in his heart SJ doesnt want to do it but whenever he meets his dad they fight.  D: he has a reoccurring dream. going to his father’s memorial. that is cuz he feels guilty. cuz of his father, SJ felt suffocated and hated him, but he regrets letting go of his father’s hand. SK: even now he is afraid to extend his hand out first.  D: he is afraid of being turned down again. He is trying to show with his body (meaning actions) – “accept me.”

IH wonders what is the connection between SK and YJ. with tommy hong, what are you all deceiving us

Tommy replays what SK said and says she is acting rash and reckless

SJ’s dad asks why come again. who said you could drop in anytime. SK: Last time you said SJ was being rebellious, but if he was really being rebellious he could live not seeing you. but he keeps being working around you. cha: for me to see and get angry. SK: he is hoping for you to acknowledge him . he said he wants to show you what he can do well and hide what he cant do well. You never once complimented him huh. This is what I drew and got awards for but my dad never praised me in particular. he just saved all of it and didnt throw anything away. everything i drew since i was young. this was enough for me. that my father was proud of me like this. Please – couldn’t you extend your hand just once first. i will ask you as a favor. She leaves her stuff for him to see and leaves

Cha looks through all her childhood artwork her dad saved and smiles. Then he remembers the comment he made to SJ’s art teacher. the guy said your son’s ability is great. Cha told him to stop coming now. that learning this much is plenty for a kid his age. and how Cha told the guy to keep it to himself (the compliment about SJ). Cha recalls how SK asked you never once praised him did you

Tommy texts SK the place to meet

IH asks SK: you don’t run errands for unni anymore? SK: no.  IH: You went to school together – were you close. SK: no we weren’t close. IH: How about now. SK: as you now – not even now. IH: ok. SK leaves. IH asks the guy to go buy a case for an tablet and draws a sketch (it’s the same one as Tommy’s design on his)

Tommy meets with SK. He says I told you before that I begged someone to save me. I kneeled in front of many people here. But over time there were a lot of people begging me. each time I said sorry but I cant.what cant be cant be.   But now I don’t see that desperation in your eyes. SK: then what do you see? he explains about what he has seen – people not being able to recover from what they went thru but not the other way around.  I thought I was the only one. Do you have confidence? SK: what confidence. Tommy: To not confess for the rest of your life. and the confidence to become the daughter in law to the royal group and not artemis. Promise -the day you become the daughter in law for royal group you will make it worthwhile for me

In the car his sec asks why did you accept SK’s proposal. Tommy: I don’t know why i okayed it.  but one thing for sure – somehow I thought saying yes to that offer would be cool

IH gets a call and says I am going in now – come by two mins later

Tommy pulls up as IH is about to go in to meet him

They go into his office to talk. His tablet is on the table. The sec calls him out to sign something that came and leaves IH alone again. She gets out her tablet with the same case and gets ready to make the switch. When the sec comes in asking what drink she wants. IH says coffee and asks where the bathroom is. IH goes to the bathroom and looks through the tablet. Tommy signs and goes back up. IH found the video and is sending it to herself. She goes back in just as tommy comes back. He opens his file but she asks aren’t you going to answer me about SK. Tommy says it sounds like an excuse so I struggled over whether to tell you or not – what happened was more cuz of CSJ than HSK.  He didn’t fit an arranged marriage. I am sorry about what happened

SJ asks her parents permission to marry SK. Her mom asks how this could happen so fast. did you both decide? SK: yes. SJ: I already proposed to her so if you give permission we can prepare for the wedding right away and plans have been set. The dad says no i cant allow it. I know you are a good person but during that time our SK had a hard time. he was ok with dating and then breaking up, but doesn’t think marriage with too much of a status difference is good. even if he is seeing it from a poor person’s perspective he doesnt think he should eagerly accept a marriage just cuz the other side is rich -such a class difference- I am scared of it. SJ: I know what you are saying but I don’t have much (meaning I don’t have much wealth) – SK has a lot more to give me. Her dad says more than that – SK is loveable and deserves that wherever she goes. SJ: i know that. the dad says he wants her to live in a stable home receiving love and doesn’t want to send her to a home with a son who doesn’t have a good relationship with his dad

In her room, SJ says all her father needs to do is think of accepting me as a son. i have confidence to do well as his son. SK asks SJ: you are envious of my home arent you? SJ: yes. I am envious.  SK : then couldnt you just trust me once and do as I tell you? SJ:what? SK:  Go and see your dad first. SJ: I don’t want to.  SK: you dont want to?why do you not do what I asked. SJ tries to say he did a lot for her all this time. SK: it’s the first time I asked you to do something. she shows the info about his grandfather’s memorial. SK: I dont like someone who doesnt go to his grandfather’s memorial. SJ: I still wont go. Don’t scold me. no matter what others say – you shouldnt scold me. He leans his head on her shoulder. Please. SK: ok. SJ: this is nice.

SJ is at his home and looks at a photo of his dad and him. SK sends a text with the rabbit in a black suit so it makes him smile. He sends a video of the rabbit going. She runs out

The dad is doing the memorial rite when SJ shows up. the relatives are happy SJ came. They all bow to the deceased grandpa. SJ is about to leave afterwards but his dad says you have to stay for the drink and then go.

SK is waiting in the car and asks did you do it? did you do well. SJ: what is there to do well or not. SK: You still like it right. She wants to high five but he doesn’t so she says you really arent going to – I am going to sulk then

IH watches the video of YJ and SK . IH is stunned. YJ comes in with drink and fruit and says your bother is running very late. Do you need anything else. IH: no. YJ: is something going on at the office. IH: no I just have work. When YJ leaves IH says there was a snake (as in a sneaky deceitful woman -not the actual reptile). She looks at SK’s resume.

In the car SJ says if I did well dont you have to give me an award? he kisses SK

IH must have told YJ she knows cuz IH says I am really uncomfortable -how much longer can I hold it in.

SJ holds her back saying where are you going

SK: want to have a meal with my parents tm

Both dads fight about their children – accusing each other.

IH calls tommy and says i will let you know one thing – you failed.

Tommy realizes IH has the video and asks SK if anything is going on. SK: did something happen

*There was going to be a change in my recap style tonight cuz I still haven’t fully recuperated from my bout of flu, but like a well trained monkey I forgot and went about it as usual. it was going to be just the gist of each dialogue type of recap and not worry about every single word being accurate, but i got into the groove again.

Still – in the coming weeks when JW’s drama starts, I cant fully recap FBND, this, and 1n2d each week so this and 1n2d are the two I am going to cut down on to bare minimum when Level 7 starts.  Just in case some Alice fans wanted a little heads up about what went on during that episode right after it airs, I will keep posting these brief recaps for as long as I can.  Not sure if I can recap 1n2d and this on Sunday night so both will be shortened a lot.

130106 청담동 앨리스 E10 HDTV 720p x264 aac mp4-Random[00-11-48]

For now his faith in love was restored, but you have to wonder how much of a risk he is taking for making this leap to trust in love again. I really wish somehow later on that their love becomes so strong that it can withstand SK’s truth so he won’t be devastated again. His tears of joy here just broke my heart. It’s like he finally feels whole again so I want him to keep cherishing this happiness for a while longer.

130106 청담동 앨리스 E10 HDTV 720p x264 aac mp4-Random[02-31-07]

I got cavities from this photo alone.

E10

Starts with SK barging into Tommy’s office. SK: you said love is like a name -stuff like names there are millions in this world. Whatever you call it, it’s from the heart of the person calling it. that’s right -my heart/feelings towards Cha SJ is despicable- but even a despicable love is still love. so from here on – what I feel in my heart for Cha SJ, I am going to call it a despicable love. you said I can call it whatever I want so I am going to call it like that.  I am despicable but I will love cha sj so you give up cuz I will never give up on my despicable love. she gives back the paperwork.

SJ is waiting in the cold

SK: Now I am not afraid – if you want to stop me find another way. Tommy:  what are you going to do -reveal everything? you wont be able to right? She says you are the one who cant – cuz if you reveal everything to Cha SJ then will you get what you want? If I reveal it, I would but could you? I will be out but you will be out forever. tommy: if you reveal everything will you get what you want? SK:I can give up then. Tommy: you will leave with nothing. without anything at rock bottom. SK: that was already me. now i know even if I am that kind of person I shouldnt go around signing contracts-that becomes a debt and it’s the wrong thing to do so I will lose my way. I wont make a deal with you.

SJ is still waiting outside in the cold alone

AJ calls and asks where are you. cuz you told him to wait – he hasnt moved an inch in the cold for an hour. So SK starts to run. she says in her head that dumb guy – he should have gone inside and waited.

SK runs over and sees SJ there

In the car the sis asks if SJ is normally determined like that. D: yes a little.sec moon asks should I go and get him. D: leave him alone. he doesnt listen at all. AJ asks if he is the CEO’s friend. D: yes i am Ho DW. the sis whispers to AJ “he is mine.” AJ: I am choi AJ. nice to meet you.  the sis asks Moon – are you the CEO’s real sec? Moon: yes I am Moon J. you are Sk’s younger sister. the sis asks “the CEO is a little crazy huh?” sec moon: not a little – a lot. AJ asks D: which hospital he works at. D replies.  driver kim spots SK coming to meet SJ. “she is here.”

SK goes over to SJ and remembers tommy asking if you tell everything will you get what you want. SJ sees her and walks over. He says you really came. Are you accepting me? She says I have something to say about myself. SJ: I do too. it’s so cold. but first answer me. You are going to accept me right? She smiles and nods yes. He goes over and picks her up and spins her around. In the car everyone rejoices. they say he is smiling. it turned out well.

SJ thanks her and says Ireally thought I would freeze to death. thank you. Everyone comes over and AJ takes pics of SK and SJ. They say they are going to prepare for the project (the event) but SJ tells them not to do that. D holds out the USB and asks arent you going to do this? SJ: dont do it. Moon asks should we relocate? SJ says dont do it -hurry and go. They leave them alone. SJ smiles at SK

SJ is inside an enclosed area still shaking from the cold. SK comes over and puts her scarf around him. She says you are totally frozen you should have waited inside somewhere. He says we are like a real couple. He tells her where to warm his cold cheeks with the hot coffee can and her hand

YJ is walking in her closet and remembers seeing SJ carry SK. She gets a call from her brother. He asks why she isnt picking up these days. Is there nothing going on. she says nothing

Tommy’s sec asks what are you going to do with SK. He says she is more complicated than I thought – acting nice then acting bad-there are many kids who dont know what to do and are ruined. “even a despicable love is love “- those words are right. also she was right about that – if I reveal the secret to Cha SJ it will be forever ruined with cha SJ – it will be the end. but if she talks he doesnt have the personality to just end it. from my situation i’m not that bad of a guy. he asks her to call a guy to spy on SK

SK walks SJ home. SJ: I said I would take you home but she says today I wanted to escort you. SJ: you are so stubborn. SK: go in or you will catch cold. be sure to shower with hot water. SJ: ok. SK: I said go in. but he says you go first.  She says ok and they wave. He tells her to go safely. Let’s meet again tm. She leaves him there smiling

SJ goes in and smells the muffler she put around his neck and hides his face in it. he starts to cry. Then he smiles through his tears

SK is walking when she gets a rabbit text asking where should we meet tm. She says anywhere is good. He likes that she sent a smiley face. he takes a pic of the rabbit and says i will pick you up by 10. leave everything up to me tm. SK texts back ok. he looks at the red USB memory stick

SK says to herself: I am going to tell him all of it tm – sincerely and with my whole heart. You can do it han SK

AJ and the sis tell the parents what happened -how they (SK and SJ) “filmed a movie.” the dad wonders how since SK couldnt make up her mind. AJ says that SK liked the CEO a lot. The dad reminds them not to bother SK until she brings it up

Next day, SJ waits outside her building and practices saying “hi did you arrive.” She is behind him saying yes I arrived. He says you are cold huh hurry and get in. he gets in and she asks where are we going today. He says paris france

At the airport, SK asks are we going to paris now. He says I put in for a vacation break so you should too. she says how can I go now -I didn’t pack or anything. He says I have the basics and we can buy the rest. She asks what about tickets and he says we just have to buy it. she asks how when it’s sold out. he replies first class tickets are always have empty seats.  she says how about my passport, I don’t have my passport. He says it’s in your bag.

He texted AJ to put SK’s passport inside her bag without her knowing but AJ says SK doesn’t have a passport.

They sit and he asks how do you not have a passport when you wanted to go to paris so much. She says she was going to make one later when she can go for real.  SJ: I thought it was a perfect plan. SK: we can do something else. what should we do. SJ: I already made reservations for paris crepes and at marcel too. SK: the person I am dating is to this extent. i wasnt able to go for 7 yrs but all you had to do was make up your mind and you can leave right away. SJ: why? am I too far again? I just wanted to do something for you that you wanted to do the most. SK: i know – thank you.  she tells herself to tell him the truth today. he says let’s go together next time to paris. she doesnt pinky swear so he asks do you not want to go so she pinky swears and says let’s go together. he makes her take passport photos to make one right now.

Then they take cute pics together and feed each other cake and take more pic

In the car she asks where are we going now. He says to go drink some tea. there is a place I wanted to go with you. she tells herself to tell him now

He takes her to a gallery café and shows her a painting- “college graduation.” SK: did you paint that? SJ: when I was poor and suffering in paris -that painting changed my life. there is something i didnt tell you. I said I suffered in paris cuz I had a fallout with my dad. SK: yes. SJ:  it wasnt just cuz i ran off to paris on my own. in paris I met a woman. She asks if his dad opposed the match. SJ: i told you that whatever i did he didnt like. we had a conflict so I hung in there determined so my father reacted strongly. after that I let go of his hand. SK: you let go his hand first? SJ: my dad didnt hold onto me either. he kicked me out and made a contract to disown me and take away my inheritance.right away my living expenses and tuition was cut off and had to move out. in my pockets I only had 150 euros so I couldn’t even come back to korea. that’s when I knew this is what being cold and hungry is. I could really die like this. She asks is that when you decided not to see your dad.  SJ: yes. SK: dont you want to see him? SJ: I do see him once in a while. though we do fight childishly when we meet. SK: so what happened after you let go of your father’s hand. SJ: it didnt work out well with that woman. living was rock bottom and my heart went to rock bottom too.  while i ate someone else’s leftover bread, I painted that. She asks why the painting is here. he says the painting got sold in 2008 at some exhibit in paris for 30,000 euros. SK repeats the number. SJ: i was surprised when I heard too. I thought that couldnt be my painting. it must be a mix-up but it was true. it was so strange. someone bought it for a high price so ever since then people came to me saying they wanted to buy my painting. I kept drawing like crazy and sold them. mostly to people in high positions. among them was the president of production at artemis. he says how he still doesnt know who bought his first painting. I dont know who it was but i am very grateful. thanks to that person i was able to come all this way. SK says to herself “I need to tell him everything too.” SJ:aren’t you going to ask why I went to artemis instead of painting. SK:why did you do that? SJ: cuz i had something to do. what that was…..He holds out the memory stick and says I cant give it to you yet. SK:what is it? SJ:no  if you see (what’s in this) you wont like me. I wont give it to you – later. she says I have something to tell you too. there is something I didnt tell you. SJ: what is it? SK: If I tell – you might not like me. He asks what is it. SK: to be honest I.. but he stops her. SK: i have to say it now. SJ: I am scared. What if I hear and it’s nothing then I dont think I will be able to tell you my secret. SK: that will never happen. to be honest..but he stops her. I am going to talk first. She says just listen first cuz I must tell you now. he says no you cant. a little later. can you wait that much. I will reveal it to you soon so just until then. you can tell me then. after seeing (what I have to show you) first.  Some guy spies on them from the side

*I bet his dad bought his first painting.

In the car SJ asks what she is thinking. She brings up his dad and says – last time he said how he was very self conscious of his dad. wanted to show his dad how well he was doing and hide what he cant do well. what did your father say after seeing how well you did and came back. SJ uses a korean term “tummy ache” meaning his dad is eating his heart out cuz he wanted SJ to crawl back in failure but that didnt happen. SK: no that’s probably not it – he just felt awkward and didnt know how to express himself so he did that. my dad was like that too -long time ago when i got a prize in art college he never said I did well. but my awards, artwork, and newspaper clippings of me from school he collected them all. SJ: my father is not that kind of person. and I dont have that kind of home.

SJ pulls up to her home and sees her to do the door. She tells him to go and he asks what did you think of today. SK: I was scared. SJ: it was cuz I suddenly wanted to go to paris huh? that was overdoing it.  D told me not to cuz it would make me look like a crazy guy. She says no it’s not that. it’s cuz I had so much fun. SJ: why is that something to be afraid of? She says I will try so that it’s not. hurry and go cuz we have to meet tm too.  He says ok then go in and see you tm. YJ was sitting in her car watching the whole time as they keep waving bye. she gets out and watches SK walk up. she almost calls out but doesn’t.

SK remembers how SJ said I am going to tell you everything soon so just wait till then. SK says please hurry and do it so I don’t get more cowardly – hurry

SJ looks at the memory stick and writes out a card and puts the memory stick inside

Tommy looks at the photos and says it seems she didn’t tell yet cuz they are just going around here and there. The spy says it seems she was going to tell him at the gallery but didnt. also a woman was waiting outside SK’s home watching them. Tommy asks who but the guy doesn’t know so tommy tells him to keep watching

IH comes in and tommy says the handbag collaboration was a success. she says i am on my way to walk through the store with CEO JTC now. he says not to rush with JTC and go slowly and just leave a good impression.  IH wants Tommy’s help with Cha and getting connected (through some event) cuz last time royal group and JK had a war to get a contract for an outlet and royal lost so Cha is gnashing his teeth over it.

Moon comes in and shows SJ a card from IH and says it’s almost time for his meeting with IH.

Tommy meets with Cha (SJ’s dad). Tommy brings up Cha and the JK group working together (through the charity event). Cha says I will think about it

IH and SJ talk about clothes and fashion and bags. His dad watches them together. When she goes to take a call, SJ goes over to his dad. SJ asks what are you staring at like that. his dad asks when do you get off work. His dad spits out the words “want to get a meal.” SJ says you and me. The dad says never mind if you don’t want to. SJ says ok let’s go eat.

They go to a restaurant and his dad tells him to eat. His dad is nervous and almost dips his sushi in SJ’s sauce. His dad asks “is work going ok. Are you getting along with Han SK – what does she do? what does her parents do. You can handle things on your own well but having a new person coming into the home is no easy feat. Cha goes on about the JK group-that the head of JK group ended up like that cuz they got the wrong daugher in law. he says more stuff about who the second son married. but SJ points out the marriage was to a Gu family daugher and got divorced. SJ points out all the divorces in those wealthy families. His dad yells and says SJ should listen to him. SJ yells back about his dad’s company so his dad tells him to just eat up. The dad complains to the staff about the food being too salty

At the shin family MH asks IH if she spoke to tommy well about the outlet. IH says from president Cha’s position  -business is business but it’s a chance to see his son often so his heart will soften somewhat. the mom thinks the matchmaking problem will get better too.  YJ says in her head things wont work out the way you people want. IH brings up how cha and SJ are already different cuz tommy said those two went to eat together so the mom thinks that tommy is doing his work well. YJ says in her head that was thanks to SK’s probably. Then MH asks if IH is communicating well with SJ. IH: yes we seem to match well on a lot of things.  so YJ says in her head you don’t know SJ. She says there is no way things will work out the way they want

D gets filled in about SJ’s meal with his dad. SJ says his dad didnt change at all. D: this is the strength of love. (cuz SJ is listening to SK) so D gets jealous saying you never listened to anything I said. he asks why SJ didn’t give the memory stick to SK yet. SJ: i cant send it – I am afraid. D: you said you were going to show her everything – that you loved her that much.   SJ: yes I love her and I am prepared too. if her answer is yes then I am going to stick with her. D: that’s why you should send it quicker. SJ: but what if she sees this and doesnt like me- what do I do then. so D says then I will send it and runs off with the USB stick

YJ drinks alone and repeats it wont work out the way you people want

SK gets a call from a drunk YJ. YJ: is everything going well? SK: did you drink? YJ: yes I did. is everything going well. SK: now I am going to do things my way. YJ: your way – are you by any chance talking about a confession? SK: yes I am going to confess everything now. YJ yells you said you wanted to succeed – that you wanted to come into Cheong damdong so you cant confess. Don’t you know men at all? Have you forgotten? If you are going to play dirty – be dirty all the way.  You know what that means right? you aren’t supposed to confess. SK hangs up on her so YJ cries and breaks her glass. She says that’s “that’s how I can live. the matchmaking for SJ has to be stopped.” MH asks are you ok- what is wrong with you these days. YJ says I don’t know. I really dont know. how could this happen. I’m sorry

*YJ literally looked like she was drowing in misery of her own making.

SK remembers how YJ said you shouldn’t confess. The sis says the CEO sent something. what could it be -maybe it’s a present. Inside is a USB stick and a paper with letters

D texted SJ and said I sent it by express delivery

The door bell rings so SJ goes and there is no one there. he looks behind the door and it’s YJ.

SK puts the memory stick in

YJ goes inside and says accusingly:there are more things you did wrong to me than what I did wrong to you. you are the one who used me not me using you. I didnt deceive you – you didn’t trust me. when our relationship ended, it wasnt me it was you. SJ: why are you like this?is it cuz of the matchmaking? YJ: (You said) you gave up everything cuz you loved me -what a joke. to be honest it was cuz you wanted to show your father. “I am different from you- I will live differently than you” you wanted to show your father – cuz you wanted to beat your father -isnt that why you used me?

SK watches a video of SJ’s conversation with his dad  – you came and disowned me as a son first and took that contract giving up my inheritance and left.  for the reason that I didnt study in america and wanted to study art in france – throwing away the woman who was ill since I was 15 – for that reason –  to live with the woman I love

YJ: your father said it back then – if someone loves you, it means they used you.  you didnt trust me from the start. you said you loved me enough to give up everything but to be truthful you were testing me.  if you gave up everything if I loved you. isnt that right?

then SK listens toSJ saying to his dad – this is revenge. without you – you thought i couldnt do anything huh?

SJ: yes it wasnt you. When I opened my eyes one day you were gone. you disappeared without a trace. it took 3 months to find out you remained in paris. it took 5 months to find out where you were living by going through your records and number. also I waited a year to run into you. to be honest more than I wanted to meet you, I wanted to confirm if there was really a woman like you. in this world, more than how my mother looked at me when I was young, the woman who looked at me with even more warmth, I never thought you didnt love me at all. but it drove me crazy wondering how much of it was genuine/sincere or wasnt -whether this was real or that was fake -how much of it was real and how much of it was fake-kept asking and being suspicious without an end. YJ says I know you looked like crazy all over paris for a year looking for me. I saw all the letters you sent me for over a year too. And I know – after that – why you couldnt do anything except get revenge

SK listens to an audio of SJ talking (that speech he gave YJ about revenge the first time he was invited to her home and they spoke alone in the wine cellar)how he hung in there with the strength of getting revenge to stand in front of YJ again a different person

SJ: yes back then aside from revenge there was nothing i could do. I dont know – Whether I did that cuz I hated you and my father to death or cuz I wanted to live. but now I know one thing for sure. we never got a proper farewell. You just disappeared one day and I kept looking for you. that’s why we are having this conversation now. Seo YJ I am sorry. For not protecting you. for not believing in you – I am sorry for all of it. live well now. She broke down in sobs so he pats her shoulder

SK watches the end of the video. SJ: you are really surprised huh? I did those things. back then I wanted to get revenge against my father, took the video secretly without him knowing and watched it over and over. I really am not sane (right in the head) huh? But that’s not all of it. when I was kicked out by my dad and wrote that contract giving up my inheritance, I …

Flashback of SJ and his dad when SJ was being disowned. the dad made him sign some documents. The dad says there was not a single thing that belonged to you ever since you were born to now. he takes SJ’s wallet and gives back his ID.  his dad says I want to kick you out without your clothes even but leave right now. Leave that watch before you go.

SJ:I didn’t tell this to anyone, but after I signed and was leaving – to be honest inwardly I thought “it’s ok. with this watch I can hang in there (meaning the cost of the watch could cover his expenses) I can hang on a few months with this.” It was a really expensive watch. but for a moment I thought I was caught for thinking that so i felt ashamed -so much I wanted to die. isnt that so pathetic? SJ tells her about the writing on that note. SJ: also what is written on there is my ID and you are the only one in the world who knows it. if you search on the internet you will know.everything I wrote down will all come out.things that were hard for me to say -stuff I didnt want getting out-I wrote those things down. there were times when all day long I didn’t eat and sleep and was sick – I was this kind of guy. Inside me there were these ugly/despicable things locked inside. can you accept me like this. I struggled over whether to tell you this or not. cuz you looked as happy as me. I didn’t want to break your happiness. but inside me – no matter how tainted and despicable/ugly –even though I showed you this –  I believe it’s love if we show each other(who we are). I will ask again – can you accept me when I am like this. she goes out and on the way texted are you at home. I took a cab now and am on my way to your place.

YJ sees SK running inside SJ’s home. She remembers how SK said I am going to confess everything now. YJ tries to stop her but doesn’t catch her. she runs up the stairs to catch her in time

SJ sees the texts from SK he missed

SK stands outside the elevator as SJ changed and is headed out to meet her. she is about to ring the bell but YJ stops her and pulls her into the elevator. SJ comes out and pressed the elevator

SK says let go as they stand outside to talk. SJ runs past them. SK: why are you like this. YJ: you didn’t come to confess did you? SK: how did you find out about this place to come here. YJ: I told you not to confess it’s better not to. SK: you talk first how did you know this place. YJ: dont do it. just go. You aren’t going to do it right. SK: He showed me everything so I am going to show him everything too. YJ: no men are different. after hearing they change. you know that. SK: that person is different. YJ: he is the same. SK: What do you know about that person. YJ: I am that woman.you mentioned with your own mouth about YJ – the one who lived in france. That’s me. cha SJ’s woman from the past. The man I threw away cuz of business is cha SJ. SK: what? YJ: back then he almost died from PTSD. after being born, he only loved two women. two of them were after money and approached him to take advantage. those two are friends. If you confess, Cha SJ will die. he might die.

SJ waits outside his front gate area for her cab to pull up

YJ: confess? It’s what nice people like you want to do for your own selfish reasons. the person confessing will feel comfortable and relieved, but what about the person who has to hear it. think about it carefully. with your confession – what will happen to SJ’s life and also what will happen to your life. you have to save Cha SJ. Inside her head she says “also save me too.”

SK crouches down from shock

SK walks back to the street in a daze and he asks what happened- why are you here. we must have missed each other. you are frozen stiff. he blows on her hands to warm them. SJ: Did you watch it? Are you ok? Even though I am that kind of person is it ok?he uses her hands to cover his cheeks. SJ: it’s so hard to look you in the face. Are you going to accept me? SK: yes. SJ: did you just say yes? SK: yes. SJ: really? SK: yes. SJ: you really really are ok? you saw everything from the start? SK: Yes. SJ: But why does your face look like that. SK:it’s nothing. SJ: I know. It’s cuz you are worried cuz now it’s your turn to confess to me. I did that too. He hugs her and thanks her. she hugs him back. SJ: You have some place to go together with me tm. Do you have time tm? SK: yes. SJ: But are you ok? she nods yes. SJ: you are really ok right? but I am uneasy. You are coming tm for sure right? SK: yes. SJ: Then let’s go I will take you. SK: no let’s meet tm. I will be going. She walks away as he smiles watching her

SK walks alone and remembers what YJ said in the past. YJ:love was first – I swear. it all ended cuz of that love. For the reason that he loved me, he gave up everything. his family and parent who opposed me and his inheritance too.  then SK remembers the audio of what SJ said to YJ: I hung in there drinking a lot of stuff with caffeine cuz when I slept you kept throwing me away.  I hung on with the strength from revenge to show up in front of you like this after I had changed. YJ: I was the woman YJ cha who lived with him in france -that’s me – Cha SJ’s woman from the past

SJ goes inside and smiles. He texts SK the place to meet tm-cheongdam convention center. You are coming for sure right? He gets her reply “yes.” He chooses a rabbit

At the Royal charity bazaar event, IH’s mom’s friends bring up the matchmaking between IH and the royal group’s son. tommy says president cha is coming

SJ calls SK and asks where are you. are you almost here. SK: I am here. he walks out and greets her. you are exactly on time. she asks what is this place. He says just follow me.

Tommy, SJ’s dad, IH, MH, and his mom are all standing there. IH says CEO JTC is coming. They all look but he comes in holding SK’s hand.

SJ walks over with her and bows to everyone. He says I have someone to introduce. My girlfriend Han SK. He says to SK: Say hello to my father. His dad is shocked. SJ: father we are going to get married.

My love for this drama is growing with every declaration and every little dance in his steps.

E9

SJ says: to be honest I am….SK walks over to him. SJ: I have something to apologize to you for. when you hear this, you might say you will never see me again, but it cant be helped. i still must apologize. to be honest I am ….artemis CEO JTC. SK says in her head “you are doing well now right?”

Tommy watches that from his car

SJ walks closer to her and says: you are surprised arent you? I am JTC. I am sorry for hiding it. (every time he says something she replies in her head and not aloud.) SK: I am sorry for deceiving you. SJ: I am a bad guy. SK says in her head: I am a bad girl. SJ: I should have told you sooner. SK: it would have been better if you told me sooner. SJ: I am this kind of guy. I dont trust my heart well. I dont trust others well. SK says in her head: do you trust me? SJ: now I trust you. your heart and my heart – I like you.  SK: I do too – I like you a lot. he shows her the letter and says when I got this letter that you like sec Kim, I was so happy. SK says in her head: I am so sorry. she says aloud – I am so overwhelmed (dumbstruck) you and I are too far apart. she walks away and he tries to hold onto her but she pulls away and walks off.

SK goes to a church to pray. She cries and says “please overlook what I did this one time. you know- just one time I intended to do something wrong. I wont hurt/scar that person again. As much as I wronged him, I will be more good to him so please make it so that I can keep liking him. Please just overlook what I did just one time.”

*overlook could also mean “forgive me” in this case

D asks SJ: what happened? did you meet her – did you confess to her. it didnt work out well? SJ says: she was dumbstruck/overwhelmed. that I was too far from her. D: why do you look so normal? she didnt accept your confession -arent you upset?  SJ: if she had accepted me right away after knowing I was the CEO I would have been nervous, but she just looked sad. at that moment I could see the whole thing. D: what? SJ: that I have a lot to do. I knew what I have to do very clearly and I suddenly felt how it can turn out well. I know what this feeling is very well.  back then too – it was the same. when Seo YJ threw me away and left. I could clearly see what I had to do. succeed and get revenge. back then I already knew – that I would succeed for sure. I know that now too. there is one thing that is different from back then. back then my heart was in hell, but not now. D: so what are you going to do. SJ: buy soju. D looks at him like he lost his mind

SJ goes and buys a lot of soju and snacks and takes it to her home. the dad asks what brings you here. SJ says sorry for coming suddenly without calling. The sis says SK isnt here now and the mom says to have a seat. but SJ says please accept my formal bow first. He makes a deep bow to them like when you do if you are serious about the relationship. SJ: mother and father, I like SK but she rejected me. The dad asks why. SJ:  why cuz to be honest – I am not sec Kim and not a Kim. I am Cha. I am the CEO of artemis and my name is Jean Thierry Cha

SK walks home and remembers him saying I like you. SK replies in her head: I do too and I am sorry. From now on I will do better

Tommy is waiting for her outside her home and asks “this is yours right?” (her cell phone)

the dad says you are the CEO? SJ: I will tell you everything. he asks the mom to prepare a table for drinks. SK’s sis texts SK to hurry and come home -sec kim said he was the CEO and acting crazy

Tommy gives the phone back and says there were a lot of calls from sec Kim or should I say CEO Cha. last time this happened too. you’ve been caught by me like last time. she asks what he is saying now. T: you knew sec kim was president Cha. and that letter he was holding said I like sec Kim on it. then “I am too far away from you” (level wise). She asks what he is talking about. Tommy warns: if you dont know what I am saying – should I send CEO Cha the texts here. cuz he believes he confessed and you found out for the first time today that he is the CEO or you can reveal that yourself.  you already knew he was the CEO, but for a short time, you pretended to be innocent like he likes. what will he say? now I see it in your eyes. that’s not a bad thing though. before you are found out, there is a way for you to keep going on that path” he shows her a contract

Her dad asks about what SJ said before about studying in paris and not being in touch with his dad. SJ says what I said is true. I studied in america and went to paris on my own.  after that I broke off with my dad. it’s true I suffered in paris.  also it’s true that I came all this way alone on my own strength. the sis asks why does my unni not like you? SJ admits about what SK said how she feels he is too far (up). the sis calls SK crazy. SJ: but like you heard I started from the bottom and I am not that great off. more than that I sincerely like SK shi so please help me mother and father. The dad offers drinks so they start drinking a lot.

Tommy talks about a design school in paris – that he will subsidize her education there and tells her to leave quietly. You are wondering why I am going this far. it’s my job cuz I matching CEO Cha and the other person is someone you know well. team leader Shin IH. settling things that get in the way of the match is my job. in this part of town this happens.  i will get things ready so you can leave right away. when you come back, I will take care of what comes after.  You are not ignorant.you are someone who knows very clearly well what she wants. If you leave like this you will remain a good memory to CEO Cha. if you go to paris and get upgraded, you might meet a good guy better than CEO cha. I cant give you a lot of time. I will contact you.  He is about to go but he asks “How did you realize so quickly? long time ago I didnt miss a class but that and success didnt have anything to do with each other. to realize that it took me about 5 years but you found out as soon as you came out here. you are really scary so that is why you will succeed. He walks away from her and sees her checking her phone

She goes home and sits outside and remembers how tommy told her to leave quietly and she hears her dad singing “I did it my way” with SJ

She goes inside and sees how drunk everyone is. AJ says this is total daebak. He said he was rejected by you and asked for help now he is like that after drinking for an hour. SK looks on sort of sadly. SJ is drunk and sees SK and says  “ya what did you say – that I was far away. He asks the dad and mom am I far away.  they say no. SJ says to SK – see I am really close. I am the same as the song number 18 “my way” says. You don’t know anything. SK just goes quietly to her room and leaves them there

She stands in her room just looking like she is in a daze while SJ is dancing with her family. She sits on the floor

Next morning the mom tells the dad to drink some honey water. The sis was about to go up to see SK to grill her about SJ, but the dad says leave her alone until she decides. the sis says why – with SJ’s face and his money. so the dad says do you think SK is like you? she is thinking deeply so leave her alone

SK goes to work. IH and MH are having a meeting about asking if the preparations are going well for the preview (there is a launch party set up)and to take good care of V-VIP cuz royal group CEO is helping out. IH says to pay particular attention and take care of  CEO JTC.

IH asks SK – how do you know JTC personally. If he invited you to the party then you two must be close. SK says that’s not it and explains about her ex boyfriend’s previous problem with the bags when he was working at artemis and how JTC took care of it. IH asks how SK got that done to get invited. it’s cuz I am curious. SK says through a letter. IH asks was the letter typed or handwritten. SK remembers how tommy said IH was going to be matched with JTC. SK says handwritten by myself. IH says the CEO’s style must be classic and emotional. . IH asks SK:  is your handwriting pretty? can you show me? no never mind. come later when the event is over to take care of things after. IH goes to get things ready

YJ remembers what SJ’s dad said and how her mother in law said the match would be with the Royal group son. YJ asks her husband MH why he wanted her here so MH says you have to go to the preview too. these days why do you not have interest in the company’s work. After IH gets married you will have to do this. YJ lies and says sorry she hasn’t been feeling well. She asks where the event will take place. he says royal department store. that mr cha helped out IH so it will turn out well. YJ asks if Mr  Cha will be there too. MH says mr. Cha (SJ’s dad) will come. If you don’t feel well then rest but YJ says no let’s go together.

SJ goes over and looks around. He sees IH handwriting cards. SJ asks what she is doing. He asks if she is writing out cards. she says to give to V- VIPs as small keepsakes. he asks if she drew this herself. IH says personally I like classic stuff so this stuff remains in memories for a long time. He says it does huh like you got a special present. IH: yes

During the photos IH holds his arm. SJ looks around and his dad comes in and sees SJ and IH together and looks pleased. DH comes over with YJ. He introduces his wife and YJ says I am seo IJ – it’s the first time meeting. Mr cha  gives his name. her husband excuses himself so the dad gives her a look. YJ goes over to SJ and says it’s been a long time. congratulations on your launching. How about collaborating on hand bags with our miss (IH) next season. artemis classic style and club A punk will look good together.  SJ looks uncomfortable looking at YJ and then his dad. MH goes over and takes IH away to meet another guest. SJ asks what is this. YJ says we will keep running into each other so let’s be comfortable. SJ asks why will we keep running into each other. She says your dad is still continuing on with the matchmaking. He says it has nothing to do with me and walks away. Mr cha  glares at YJ

YJ meets with SJ’s dad alone. YJ  says this is business so im not bothered by it but SJ wont be able to stand it. are you still going to continue. He says yes cuz it’s business. She says this is why it wont work with SJ. you said it was cuz of me? no before that SJ ran away from you. he didnt come from america to paris to meet me. he ran away from you. when he sees you -cuz he kept remembering what happened then.  what you said back then -about SJ’s mother . your son will never do what you want. You think only I will be ruined. Your relationship with your son will be ruined forever. He tells her “so step out of it. if you go away quietly from that home  (Shin family)- if you are gone there will be no problem.

YJ cries alone and so does SJ’s dad

Her boss tells SK to clean up the rest and leaves her alone. SJ is hiding behind a poster and asks arent you going. SK says I have work left. He asks did you eat. She says I have work. He says do it quickly and let’s go eat  but she says please just go. SJ:why – just do it quickly and let’s go eat but she says please just go. He looks sad and walks away. She gets a text. SJ reads over her shoulder and as she turns to look, they end up kissing. SJ says you just saw right? you still think we are far apart. We are really close. ya han SK – I will never give up. never.  He dances and makes heart hands and shoots pointy fingers at her. he is still dancing when the elevator doors open. The women inside stare so he stops dancing and gets in

When SK is leaving YJ is there

They go drinking and SK asks: when you think you should stop with someone and think you should give up it means you didnt love him that much right? YJ: why? cuz you want to give up? SK: Do you have a faith/religious affiliation. Have you been to church or temple. YJ: why? did you go? So you went. What did you pray for.  “I was wrong. I will live nicely. from here on I will do many good things. ” SK cries and says: just please overlook what I did just this one time. please if you forgive me just this once from here on I will live more nicely. She cried saying that so YJ pours more drink and says what did we do that was so wrong. Yes we lied and used people. And we made other people shed tears of blood but I shed tears of blood too. how could I not? Where did it start to go  wrong. Why are we the only ones having a conscience. She gets up to go to the bathroom. SK keeps drinking.

SK steps outside and calls tommy. He asks didn’t you call cuz you had something to say. She asks cant you overlook what I did. You said you did something similar. I think you know better than anyone how I feel and what situation I am in -why I had to do that. please overlook what I did – please just this once. Tommy says I do know what you are going thru right now  -I know how you feel – cuz I begged the same as you before, but it didnt work.in this world there are things that just can’t be when it cant work. you are better off though. I opened a good path for you. He says let’s meet tm and hangs up.

SK goes back in and YJ is there. YJ asks what is not going well with you? SK drinks more.

SJ says to his phone -SK shi even if you don’t reply I am going to keep sending texts. YJ tries to wake SK but she wont get up. YJ looks at SK’s text. She remembers how SK said her white rabbit was that sec kim. YJ texts him and says come and get me. He runs out

SJ texts where are you. YJ texts back so he says I will be there in 3 mins. YJ tells SK to wait cuz that person will be here soon. she goes to the bathroom to wash up and walks out as SJ heads over. He arrives and tries to wake SK. SJ: why did she drink so much. YJ sees it’s SJ. SJ piggybacks SK and YJ stands there in shock watching him leave with SK

130105 청담동 앨리스 E09 HDTV 720p x264 aac mp4-Random[01-20-54]

SJ is happy about carrying her. he says how she isnt heavy at all. she touches his cheek so he takes her hand and pets himself on the cheek with it. he sort of skips along in happiness. YJ looks at them and remembers all the stuff SK said. when YJ asked you must have found your white rabbit. SK replied “that person’s secretary. you said love and business cant mix, but I think it’s possible. that person was my white rabbit and he likes me.  YJ cries from shock.

SJ gets to her home and says we came already ( as in they came too quickly) the parents say how could you make a girl be in this state when she cant drink. what did you do-what is this? SJ says she didnt drink with me. I just got a call to come and get her cuz she was drunk so I brought her. these days she wont even meet me. the dad says hurry and go inside. the mom says SJ and SK’s situations (status in society) are too different.

SJ puts her in bed and says “it wasnt hard at all. last time when I carried CAJ I almost died.” he tucks her in and moves her hair away from her face. Looking at her face he says: If you woke up by any chance it would be nice if you kept pretending to sleep and hear me out. (he puts her hand on his heart) my heart is racing a lot huh? Only when you are in front of me I am like this. you are bold/strong, honest/direct, and honorable, but I am pathetic, full of fear, hesitant. So I told you that is why I like you. so don’t be afraid. he holds her hand and says “We can do this. fightin.” maybe I shouldnt have done that. hopefully you are sleeping. He tucks her in more and waves. SJ: goodbye and sleep well. She rolls over and cries as he leaves. She opens her tear filled eyes and closes them again

He goes out and her sister asks do you know what this thurs is? SJ: what (special) day is it? the sis says This is why she doesn’t like you- even though you have a lot of money. He asks her to help him

AJ and her sister are in SK’s room. AJ: did you wake up. SK asks what time it is. sis says 7am. AJ asks if she has time tonight. AJ says a friend of theirs has a art exhibit at a cafe and invited them including the sis. the sis say let’s go together. Since her sister called her unni SK gets suspicious and asks what is up with you. AJ: i am going to so let’s go together. SK: did you plan this out? they feign innocence and say what are you talking about. SK: ok i will go. she leaves the room. AJ scolds the sis for saying Unni so the sis says “anyway she said she would go”

in the car mr cha is told all he has to do is take the photos and his sec will do the interview. cha is about to get out but says wait a while

SK went to see her dad at the bakery. Her dad says  why dont you come in. but she says it’s ok. he gives her bread that was just baked to eat. he says SJ is a nice person even though he lives differently from us. that’s nothing to be tormented about. Receiving love is a good thing. I feel good (about you two) so why do you look like that these days. she says there is a team leader (her boss IH)– she is very beautiful, refined, and charismatic -to the extent that it’s scary. she has someone she wants to marry so she works hard to get him to like her. dad says since she is a scary team leader doing that it must not suit her.  SK: seeing her like that she looked so loveable but I wont look like that (in the same situation). her dad says why not – my daughter is very loveable.  she says a quote in her head about what happens when a rich person loves a poor person they get complimented but when a poor person loves a rich person they receive criticism. she adjusts his clothes and tells him to cheer up. SJ’s dad is in his car and watches them hug and looks envious

SJ’s dad and her dad take photos. He asks was that your daughter. I saw from the car- what were you talking about like that so chummy. at that age arent they distant with their parents? what were you talking about? her dad says stuff like “did you eat. I didnt eat. then let’s eat. while eating she talks about work and her friends. mr cha says that’s what you do when she was in middle school. her dad says we just do that-   Not too long ago the man who likes her came over and drank with us. don’t you do that too -eat with your child? cha says food?  her dad says just talk about this and that during a meal. SJ’s dad says maybe I should start by having a meal with him.

D shows up and Moon and says we prepared everything you ordered. SJ double checks if everything was done like reservations have been confirmed at the gallery cafe and kicked out all the customers. D: yes we did. did you check the most important thing – is SK coming?

SK’s sister says SK isnt answering her phone and AJ wonders why SK isnt coming cuz it’s time

SK goes to meet Tommy. he gives her stuff to sign about her school registration and then another document. he explains rich people sign a contract before they get married – he is talking about a prenup.  since you want to become a high class person you have to get used to this stuff. sign it.  The document says: From this moment on Han SK will give up any contact with Cha SJ. (meaning not have any relationship with him anymore)  She says you might find this ridiculous to hear and not believe it but I sincerely like Cha SJ. But tommy stops her and says you aren’t going to say you sincerely love him right? That’s too much. I already know what you have been up to. you are too undeserving. you say love. Love is like a name. in this world there are a lot of names. there are millions of names. Among those names it’s one. if you want to call it love then you can call it that – whatever you call it that’s the heart of the person calling it that. but don’t do that in front of me. you are making me say this twice. at first I was wrong but this time it’s correct (he is talking about his mistake the fist time assuming she would be sponsored but now he is correct about his assumptions of her now) Why are you like that – between us pros. SK cries and says when Shin IH team leader wants to look good in the CEO’s eyes, to look good in his eyes and then get married. when she does it – why does it look good and when I do it, it’s unworthy. team leader’s marriage is calculated too. why am I the only one who becomes the bad person –why am I the only one who is like a thief-why am I like a woman who only knows love. Tommy: why did I have to go this far to do this? since we know each other, let’s not keep tormenting/bothering each other

SJ arrives with D and Moon. SJ goes inside alone and waits. D and Moon set up the rest of the stuff and D asks where is the flower. SJ says driver kim is bringing it. AJ says she didn’t come yet and didn’t answer her phone. sis says she didnt go home either. SJ gets a call from SK. SJ: Where are you? I will go there now. SK says I know you called me out today, but I cant go. Also you and I wont work. I am sorry. SJ: listen to what I have to say too. SK: I am sorry. She hangs up and he keeps calling out her name. D asks what did she say. SJ: she said it wont work with me. Driver kim says the flowers are here – where do I put it. D asks SJ: what are you going to do. it was so hard to prepare all this. she has to come and then say it wont work.  it’s ok if you break up but at least you should show her all this first. why did you prepare all this -why did you start all this? you are the one who tried so hard to hear a thank you. we prepared this perfectly today. SJ: that’s why – everything failed. what I wanted to do for han SK – there isnt anything that I planned out that worked. D: you don’t know yet-  you dont know how it will end up this time. it’s not over yet. no matter what find her. find her and show her everything you wanted to show her. after seeing this if she says it wont work – at that time then you can admit it’s over. it wont be late to admit it then. The others say find SK first. the sis asks how should we go to our home or the office. moon: what if she isnt there. is there some place she would go. D: is there some place where she could go. AJ says I can find her. by locating her phone location. I can track her phone thru her ID and secret number. I got that info not too long ago when she lost her phone.

driver Kim drives all of them when AJ gets the location. driver kim tells them to hold on tight and drives crazy.  They get there and call out for SK. SJ tries to call again. He runs off by himself to look for SK.

SK ignores the calls and SJ finds her. she is standing there looking out over the water and crying. he quickly walks down the stairs and hugs her. he says repeatedly – don’t go. I was going to confess to you today. I was going to turn on a cool movie and recite the lines and confess in a cool way. she tries to pull away but he hugs her again. SJ quotes the lines he was going to say -” if there is a limit on love I want my love to be for thousands of years – Until I die will you love me. no until I die I will love you.” I was going to say those cool lines. but that’s not it at all. (it wont do cuz) it doesn’t suit me. I am a worry wart – that the person I love will throw me away and leave. I am scared that she will leave. I am afraid. Like when I was younger when my mother let go of my hand and left. And then long time ago when my girlfriend suddenly packed her bags and left. it comes out in my dreams. sometimes I get scared (at night) so I turn the lights on. you know right? I am not a cool CEO. I am not a cool Prince who rescued you. I am just a pathetic man who loves you. I pathetically love you. so you decide if you can accept someone like me. please dont throw me away – don’t leave and rescue me. She looks at him with tears in her eyes. Everyone is watching them from above. She asks can you wait an hour for me?  SJ nods yes. SK runs off and AJ calls out her name.

SK goes back to Tommy’s office. She barges in and says you said love is like a name -stuff like names there are millions in this world. Whatever you call it, it’s from the heart of the person calling it. that’s right -my heart/feelings towards Cha SJ is despicable- but even a despicable love is still love. so from here on – what I feel in my heart for Cha SJ, I am going to call it a despicable love. you said I can call it whatever I want so I am going to call it like that.  I am despicable but I will love cha sj so you give up cuz I will never give up on my despicable love.

she gives him a defiant look and throws down the contract on the table

*I had to ask a lot of Koreans, but the word “chooak/choohae” means ugly, evil, disgusting, or bad and it sounded severe to describe SK’s love for SJ like that so I used a less harsh word “unworthy” then changed it to “despicable”

Preview:

They are talking about their past. SJ says more than how my mother looked at me the woman who looked at me with even more warmth, I never thought you didnt love me. YJ : I read all the letters you sent me for over a year so I know. SJ: I kept looking for you and was lost. so now…

SJ’s dad says want to eat a meal? SJ: food? you and me?

IH tells her mom and brother: the two of them went to have a meal.

YJ says in her head: it wont work out the way you want

SJ takes SK to the airport. SK asks you are going to paris right now? what about tickets?   SJ says: There are always empty seats in first class.

alice

I know why she is holding this thermos up – it’s cuz it’s the most imp item to her these days cuz without something warm in her system, the poor girl wont be able to talk straight in this freezing cold weather.

I’ve been doing short recaps of this each week and it’s getting longer and longer and my side widgets are getting full so I decided to move them into one post. Sorry, but no time for screencaps cuz of 1n2d on Sundays taking precedence.

E8

Sec moon says I didn’t tell choi AJ anything, I heard something. flashback to AJ telling him that SK likes sec Kim. SJ: Han SK? Me? He smiles really big. SK gets the text from AJ that sec Moon said that sec Kim is Jean Thierry Cha. SK turns around as SJ walks out of the elevator in a daze and doesn’t see SK in there. He keeps asking sec Moon if it’s for real (that SK likes him). SK wonders if it’s for real that sec Kim is the CEO. The doors of the elevator close as SK repeats sec Kim is the CEO.

Sec Moon asks if he is ok. SJ asks again if it’s for real. Sec Moon says yes I clearly remembered. I didn’t tell her the secret. I only heard the secret from from Choi AJ (that SK likes you).  SJ starts to beam as the words “she likes me” sinks in. DW comes over. DW asks why SJ is like this. SJ smiles at him and says really fast “what to do” a few times.

*I didnt know men could beam but there is no other way to describe how his face lit up.

SK remembers the first time SJ lied and said he is the CEO’s sec. then all his other lies. And how AJ said there is no sec Kim in her company.

SJ is so happy he picks DW up and says Han SK likes me. DW: that’s good but since when did she start to like you. SJ guesses maybe starting from the high five. He is too excited to sit and keeps picking DW up.

SK gets off the elevator and joins the party.

DW says she still doesn’t know you are the CEO. that’s good then. just tell her everything today and confess your feelings.  SJ: confess? DW: you were going to confess to her anyway so that’s why you invited her. anyway congratulations. she will be quite surprised cuz she wouldn’t have even imagined you are the CEO. SJ suddenly sees the problem and says the one Han SK likes is sec Kim

SK is shown to her seat.

SJ says something went wrong. what to do. I am not sec Kim. she likes sec Kim. I am Jean Theirry Cha. something went wrong. what to do. DW says come to your senses. listen carefully. you aren’t sec Kim or Jean Theirry Cha. It’s like those clothes you wear– those are just all fashion. You are not your clothes. SJ: i am not my clothes. DW: you are just cha SJ. the confession you are going to do today –  just the human being Cha SJ saying it to the woman he likes.  SJ wonders if SK came yet.

SK asks for water and drinks it now and sees SJ’s face in the empty glass.

DW and SJ peek out and check to see if SK sitting there. SJ: what to do. what if she is disappointed after finding out I am the CEO. DW says you still have to do it anyway yourself. SJ chickens out and runs off as Tommy watches. Tommy heads in and sees SK. He remembers what she said about how it will be the end if the CEO hears before she meets him.

YJ gets on her knees and says whose wife she is and how she came all this way thanks to SJ’s dad. She asks for him to save her once more and keep her secret. He agrees and says of course I have to keep the secret then there wont be any problem with the matchmaking (between his son and her sister in law). let’s take this to our graves. if we both keep our mouths shut there wont be a problem with the marriage set up.  She asks for him to stop what he is doing and not do that. He says she did that with SJ cuz it was business so isnt she doing business now too. that’s the one thing I liked about you – that you knew how to do business. let’s do well. isnt royal group a good family to do business with. He walks out and leaves her on her knees crying.

*sorry when I did the quick recap that word for matchmaking sounded exactly like “divorce” in Korean so I wrote that in for a few days. it’s been edited so now it’s all correct.

SJ’s dad remembers what SJ said and how the dad cant do what he is planning with YJ’s husband’s group. his dad says so SJ knew (about whose wife SJ is).

YJ ignores a call from her brother.

Tommy stares at SK. YJ’s husband Shin Min hyuk and sister in law arrive and greet tommy. MH spots SK so his sister goes over to her. SK stands and bows. Her boss asks what she is doing here. did you come as a guest? How? SK: I was invited by the CEO. Her boss asks do you know him? SK says through personal (reasons).

The party starts as SJ freaks out in the back. He keeps repeating “what to do.” DW tells him it’s about to start – you have to go on stage. jean theirry cha has to stand on stage.  sec Moon comes over and says the talk about art is ending and after it’s over you can go on. SJ asks if SK is there. DW says of course she probably is. SJ freaks out and wants more time to think this over calmly. he freaks out and says what to do so sec Moon yells “live being honest.” SJ gets upset at him and asks “what did you just say you punk.” Sec Moon says you should be honest to the person you love. DW agrees and says a love without honesty no matter what doesn’t have a future. whether SK gets disappointed today or like it (the news) -starting from today you have to be honest with Han SK. Being honest is the easiest way. sec Moon backs him up and says yes be honest.

SJ walks over to the back waiting area as the presentation finishes and the CEO is announced. SJ takes a deep breath and walks out. he makes a speech aloud while talking to SK in his head – are you looking now SK shi? You are really shocked right now aren’t you? he starts his speech aloud about the French cake but in his head he says “do you remember SK shi?” (their conversation about the cake) He talks about the cake – burning off everything that is bad and wishing for a new hope -the hope cake. when every new year starts he is reminded of a poem. He recites the poem “The most wonderful poem has not been written yet, the most beautiful song has yet to be sung, the best days have not been lived yet, the widest sea has not been crossed yet, the farthest journey has not ended yet”  (In his head, he said “SK shi–about us – we havent yet, but the days we have left ahead to be together – our journey too is just starting.) He finishes his speech about his company and how he hopes they get what they hoped for with Artemis and says he has a personal hope – being honest to be the easiest. The lights come on and he looks everywhere and doesn’t see SK. He looks at his friend DW and looks sad. He is asked to make a toast. SJ gives a speech and says merry Christmas and happy new year.

Tommy remembers how SK walked out but left behind her phone. tommy got it and grins.

SJ asks DW what happened – where did SK go. DW: I dont know either. SJ: did she leave cuz of me? cuz she felt betrayed? but DW says she left before Jean Theirry’s introduction. SJ wonders why she left then. DW says she might have gone to the bathroom. for now focus on this party right now cuz it’s important

AJ tells SK this is great for you cuz sec Kim is poor but the CEO is a king. plus that king likes you and you like him. AJ says there is one more great news. I remembered what I told sec moon that you like sec Kim. I did really well didnt I? from now on all you have to do is just act the way you have been to the CEO. why did he like you cuz like the candy you lived diligently. and he doesnt know about your motive. you didnt run into him at the party and I will continue to act like I dont remember what I heard from sec Moon.  So all you have to do is be the candy again. the candy who lives diligently -the candy the CEO doesnt know. the candy that sec Kim likes. She says you caught the best wish of a lifetime.  You hit the jackpot on the lottery. SK repeats her words about winning the lottery asking “I did huh? but tears flow down. AJ asks why. SK says cuz I am happy. She wipes her tears and smiles

Some man says to YJ’s husband MH he has seen Jean’s face before. Not in paris but as Cha SJ-he resembles the only son of the Royal group a lot. MH repeats that.

His sister goes up to SJ and talks about his debut and the poem he cited. how she read it in turkey but hearing it again seemed new.  SJ got a text and excuses himself after looking over and seeing Tommy

Tommy says hello and SJ says I didn’t invite you. Tommy says I came to apologize for what happened last time – you wouldnt take my calls so I had to impose like this. SJ asks did you meet SK here. tommy says I came to apologize to her but she left before you came out so I lost my chance to apologize again. SJ says should I tell you how to apologize? you can do it by not showing up in front of her and in front of me. Tommy: don’t hate me so much. but SJ walked away from him already

SK went to her workroom. She writes a list numbering each point: 1) sec Kim is Jean theirry cha the CEO. 2) The CEO likes the candy SK. 3) but I am no longer candy.  4) The CEO doesn’t know I changed.  5) So the CEO liked me before I changed. She starts to cry as she writes the rest. 6) I have to act like I was before I changed. 7) I like sec Kim. 8) but the person I have to take advantage of is not sec Kim, but the CEO Jean TC. 9) cuz this is a dream come true. 10) so I have to act like the Han SK before she changed

SK walks out and stands in front of SJ’s home and repeats one of the things she wrote about pretending to be who she was in the past. She is crying sitting outside and wipes her tears. SK: now I am like how I was in the past

SK shows AJ the letter she wrote for SJ and asks if it will melt him. AJ thinks it will. SK says sec Moon said the CEO was moved by the letter she wrote about IJ oppa so he will fall for the letter.  (SK is manipulating the fact that SJ gets moved by her letters and made this one good so it will make SJ cry again) AJ says SK seems a little mean/rude doing this. SK says like you said – this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. AJ says then you have to return those (the clothes SJ bought her) so SK packs them up. her dad comes in asking if she came home cuz  he called a lot but she didn’t pick up. SK looks for her phone and cant find it. AJ calls her number. Dad says find your phone later and go down cuz your friend came. SK goes down and YJ is crying outside.

SJ wonders why SK left when she asked to meet the CEO and wanted to see if his outfit looked good on him. And why isnt she answering her phone. she said she likes me and that she wanted to meet the CEO but disappeared so what is going on. DW asks you miss her so much you are going crazy huh? SJ admits a while ago when I heard that from sec Moon, I thought my heart would burst. yes I like Han SK. I want to hurry and meet her and tell her everything even if she gets angry that I deceived her during that time. even if she is diappointed I am the CEO.  I want to reveal everything – to hurry and meet her -and spill everything – my sincerity and my heart. DW nods proudly.

YJ takes SK to a lavish room and SK gets her some water. YJ asks do you know where this is. On that day it was christmas too. I came here for an errand to do a pick up delivery and women my age were having a party in a room that costs $5,000 a night. On that night I made up my mind that I would spend Christmas here next year so I got married next. Now renting out this room is no big deal for me. Do you envy me? Do you want to keep going on this path? SK: I don’t like people who talk like that the most. whether you are happy or not you got everything you wanted and you are telling other people not to do the same thing. YJ says I get what you are saying cuz I did that too. So what happened with that matter – did you succeed? SK says no. he wasnt an obstacle. I told you about my white rabbit and that sec. YJ asks was your obstacle that sec? SK: yes. YJ: then what does it mean he isnt your obstacle? SK: that person was my white rabbit.  YJ: he deceived you? SK: yes, also he likes me. in the diary you said love and business cant mix. YJ: yes. SK: but I think it’s possible. are you saying it cant? YJ says that’s not it. you and I seem similar. Flashback to YJ and SJ getting married. YJ says I loved him. is that funny? yes it would be funny. You probably don’t believe me. You might think it was business and not love, but it’s for real – love was first. I swear. Then I found out he was a son of a really impressive (wealthy) family. something like this is really happening to me, but in the end everything ended cuz of that love. He gave up everything for the sole reason that he loved me. his family that opposed me – his parents – his inheritance from his parents too. So SK asks did you end it. YJ says love is the total package.  I didnt love him cuz he was from a wealthy family- it was his heart for loving me – that personality- his looks- background-status- everything was included. but it’s different in business. SK: only one thing is important. YJ: yes. so that’s why we couldnt go together. cuz the path of love and business are too different.  SK: you know that feeling too huh – if you think you could have both love and business how greedy you get. YJ: yes there is nothing I can say to you now for you to listen (meaning change your mind)  you know what to do from now on right. SK quotes the secret diary about growing ambition/desire if you wait. YJ tells her to do well and gets up but SK asks if anything is going on with her -didnt you call me to tell me? but YJ says I was going to but I thought about it and we aren’t that close. Make sure you succeed so you can come to places like this often. Congratulations. She walks out and leaves SK there

SJ is standing outside SK’s home. He wants to call her but doesn’t

SK is still standing in that room.

Next morning sec Moon is reporting to SJ about the party connections and the company and there is a box and letter on his deak. Sec Moon says Han SK said to give it to you.

Tommy hears from his assistant about the incident with SK’s boyfriend being sued by SJ and how SK rescued him and SJ forgave him. Tommy figures out what is going on -he now gets why SK went after SJ cuz he is nice to poor people.  but she is no longer candy.  He thinks it’s strange that SK wants to come into this world  so why leave the CEO of artemis alone and come after me. he asks if the assistant got the pass code to open SK’s phone. she says yes and hands it over.  He looks through SK’s phone

SK wrote a letter to the CEO so SJ reads aloud: it’s Han SK. I am really sorry for saying this suddenly. I cant be your stylist anymore – why cuz I like your sec. but in my situation now I cant like anyone. in front of reality – a love that doesnt have any strength – I am afraid of that. Even though I held onto my heart saying I shouldn’t, but it kept wavering so I was more afraid of that. the opportunity you gave me I know very well I should be grateful and that it’s precious but I have to stop this job. it seemed too hard to meet you in person and tell you this so I avoided the party that you invited me to so I am very sorry. also thank you very much. SJ cried reading the letter and runs out to get in the car and ride over to where SK works during the day. He stands outside and calls. Tommy picks up the call from sec Kim. He hangs up after hearing SJ’s voice. So he guesses SK thought Jean theirry was the sec. SJ hears from sec Moon that SK isnt at work cuz she took some time off

SJ goes to SK’s home and runs into her mom and sister. he asks about SK. The sister says SK isnt here. he asks where she went. the girl says they don’t know where SK went cuz she said she wanted to clear her head and took some time off from work and wont be home for a few days. SJ: and you dont know where she went? The mom asks if he knows anything cuz SK was acting strange for a few days. she didnt look well either. when I asked if she was ill she said she wasnt. The sister says we dont even know so how would sec kim know. she asks if he came to say something. tell her if there is anything he wants her to relay to SK but SJ says no so they go inside. SJ tries to call SK and leaves a message. Please call when you hear this cuz I have something I must say. Her sister looks down and makes a call

AJ is with SK at the sauna and takes the call from the sister.  you told him you didnt know where SK went right? you did well. you dont need to know why. if you want a designer bag keep up the good work.  AJ reports to SK the CEO came and left. he asked where you are and HJ (the sister) said she didn’t know. everything is going well so we just need to keep this up.  SK asks about her phone – was it found, but AJ cant track it down even though she knows the location range but there is no way to find it so put a stop on your phone for now (so it cant be used). AJ says things turned out well.  you have to grab that person’s heart with this chance

SJ drives to her work shop and looks around. He sees her stuffed rabbit designs.

Tommy says to his assistant that SK thought SJ was the sec, but now she knows he is the CEO. SJ doesn’t know SK found out he is the CEO. that SK found out SJ is the CEO, she knows SJ doesnt know that. it means SK has started using SJ now. for now find out where SK is cuz this can end easily

YJ’s husband MH told his mom that jean theirry resembles cha SJ – the royal group’s son. MH replies he just needs to confirm it cuz she asks are you sure. the mom wonders how people could not know that. Tommy didnt mention that.  YJ overhears their conversation. MH says I have to confirm but now I get why IN (his sister) was like that.  the mom asks if his sister already suspected that Jean was royal group’s family. MH says I was wondering what she was planning but thinking about it – it’s not a bad idea. if IN gets put in charge of the royal group business. the mom says then you two wont have anything to fight over. the mom likes the idea of being connected with royal group. she tells him to confirm first. He wants to find out more about jean theirry cha.

YJ goes off alone and tells herself -no matter what you have to find a way – you cant be ruined like this

SJ is pacing and saying what to do. he tells DW -where could she have gone. something might have happened to her. DW tells him SK could be doing the same thing as SJ now – trying to figure things out so wait for now. SJ:  I should have told her sooner. DW says it isnt too late now. if you tell her properly why you had no choice but to do that till now. SJ interrupts and says “cuz I couldnt trust her.  before I knew how she felt deep down in her heart I wouldnt show her all of me. I had those feelings. like other women, that Han SK could do that too. (make him lost his faith in her). He hugs the rabbit close.

*OMG he is going to be devastated later when he learns that SK was out to use him for her plan to land a rich guy. He looks like a man who had been burned by love in the worst possible way and didn’t want to leave himself vulnerable to go through that pain again. Little does he know he is running head on into that anguish all over again.

SK sits at the sauna alone

SJ calls himself a fool: I was only drunk from my feelings and didn’t see how she felt in her heart properly. I ruined it all. I miss her and want to meet and talk. DW watches his friend be in misery and decides to do something about it.

DW tracks down SK’s home and stands outside as her sister asks who he is. He asks if Han SK lives here. she says she is my sister. Who are you. he says a friend of sec Kim. She asks for his business card. She sees he is a doctor and says daebak. He asks to meet SK. She says follow me.

She takes him to a shop and tells him to wait. She lays out glasses for mon through Sunday and tells him to switch out his glasses each day. the price is cheap too. $10 each. This is how he can meet her sister. She sees him out and says come again next time. I will call. *This is her part time job and she just made a sale in exchange for giving him info about SK’s whereabouts.

in his meeting SJ gets a text from DW that he found out where SK is.

AJ finds out the sister told sec Kim’s friend DW where SK is. and how cute DW was. AJ asks how could you tell him. the sister says I was going to tell SK to run off but she isnt answering her phone.  AJ is upset and calls the sauna to reach a customer named SK.

SJ is walking out and telling the driver where he is going and Tommy’s spy reports where SJ is headed

AJ yells at SK to get away now cuz this isnt the right time ( to meet SJ)

Tommy and SJ are headed over to where SK is separately at the same time. SK runs out and climbs up the stairs. She hides as SJ’s car pulls up. he yells for the driver to stop cuz he saw her. Tommy watches SJ running out and chasing after SK. She hides behind a car in the parking lot. SJ calls out her name over and over. “where are you? I have something to tell you. where are you?” tommy watches from across the way. SJ yells for her to come out. he gives up and just stands there and says “ok just listen to me. she wonders “is he going to say it now.” SJ: There is something I couldn’t tell you.SK: what to do. SJ: I didn’t mean to do that from the start. it just happened that way. No this is an excuse. To be honest, I… before he can finish she slowly walks over to him and faces him. He says I have something to apologize for – if you hear this you might not want to see me again but it cant be helped. I have to apologize. To be honest I am… she says to herself in her head “SK ah – you have to do well. Pretend to be shocked naturally.” SJ: I am the CEO of Artemis Jean Thierry Cha. SK cries on cue and says in her head “Han SK – you are doing well now right?”

End

No preview

Do you know what I like about this show. These characters like YJ and SK are out for fluff – like cotton candy. something they crave that quickly dissolves. there is nothing to hold onto cuz all they wanted was the sweetness. but SJ is more caramel brickle. something hard that lasts longer and can be enjoyed more. the sooner SK owns up to the fact that she cant be Alice cuz she has a conscience, the better off everyone will be. but she is still clinging to that cotton candy dream and I fear the instant she learns how she is breaking SJ’s heart by wanting her luxury life, it might be too late for both of them. I hope he doesnt retreat again and stop being able to trust cuz it took so much for him to come out of his shell. I would hate to see him lose his vigor for life again. it’s almost seems like a sin to hurt someone so genuine and fragile. I love SK for crying cuz it means there is still some hope for a conscience somewhere in her heart. if only she could hold onto it more firmly for SJ’s sake and not be tempted by the sweet life she craves so much.

acps

Alice in Cheongdam-dong E7:

AJ calls SK to say I am drinking with sec Moon -all for your sake. it doesnt make sense to have a white rabbit and not even get to see his face. have to pave a path for you to see him yourself with your own eyes. you stop hanging around with sec Kim. you have a habit of giving your heart to a poor guy. didnt I tell you sec Kim had a lot of debt and his situation isnt good. AJ hangs up and asks sec Moon to play the truth game.

SK remembers what AJ just said “you have a habit of giving your heart to poor guys.” so SK says “in my life that will never ever happen again.”

echoing her words in a different light at a pool hall, SJ says to DW “in my life I didnt know something like this would come again. when Han SK was about to fall, I caught her. our faces were so close.” DW: so? SJ: my heart was thumping like crazy. Han SK tried to pull away but I pulled her close again. DW: and? SJ: I couldnt do it. DW:why? to make the woman go crazy inside? yeah most people do that. SJ: that’s not it. it was cuz I was trembling. DW: really? you trembled for real? DW concludes that’s a good sign “to be honest trembling is normal. guys who have done it a lot might not do it, but it’s proof your heart took steps up to there.” SJ: what do I do now. DW: do it. (meaning kiss her). SJ: do it? DW: that’s treatment too. even if you tremble make sure to do it. next time you meet her.  SJ repeats that and pretends to kiss the cue stick so DW tells him to stop imagining. to do it for real. after you do it, tell me. SJ: after I do it? he starts to blush and I fall in love with his cuteness all over again.

SK reads YJ’s diary “the emotion you have to be the most careful of – love. (something about how love puts a spell over things and makes decisions hazy. that you shouldnt mix up two things – business and love)

SJ listens to the OST for Love affair with a rabbit tucked under a blanket on his tummy and says “the danger of jumping into someone’s life. getting on your knees to go together – that is love.

next morning AJ tells SK the CEO is not married. SK says I know. AJ suggests instead of using him as the white rabbit, why not go directly for him, but SK thinks that is aiming too high.

SJ goes to meet SK. she explains about the two styles. he likes the suit on the right and offers to put it on. as she checks the fit on him, he tries to get his face close to hers and remembers DW saying “even if you tremble be sure to do it.” He tries to go for it again as she puts the bow tie on him, but he is shaking too much. then he asks what about the handkerchief and steps up close to her too quickly as she tucks it in his pocket. she tells him to look in the mirror. in his head he tells himself to pick the right time. she tells herself to focus just on work.

as they leave, SJ asks if there arent any other styles. she reminds him how he said he would choose between the two suits a while ago. he says since this is the CEO’s first time showing himself, the point of the outfit is lacking so she offers to prepare again within tonight. she asks if the party is tm. SJ: yes. SK: will I not be able to confirm if the party look I prepared looks good on the CEO or not? SJ  says I told you before about the CEO so she says “ok I will be going then.”

He calls her back and goes through some styles for her. she asks what he is doing. SJ: I told you my clothes were all from the CEO. he hates when his staff goes around looking poorly dressed. I am not saying you look poorly dressed. since you have to go around to work on his styling, the CEO ordered me to give attention to your clothes [meaning Jean Thierry Cha ordered him to style SK and give her new looks] and the clothes that have been selected is his style for her. She has a makeover. he puts her shoes on her and tells her to stand. when she loses her balance, he catches her and kisses her.

AJ and sec Moon meet to try to figure out if either one said anything to each other while they were drunk and if either one remembers anything about what happened last night. [he worried he told about sec kim (SJ) being the CEO and she worries about what she told sec moon about SK’s secret

I love what SJ confides to his friend DW. SJ told him about what happened – the kiss and how SK ran out. so DW says she probably ran out cuz she was shocked. did you think she would grab your neck and pull you towards her from the start. SJ admits “i was drunk from my emotions. I didnt know I would do this.” DW: a guy over 30 who just kissed – trembling like this and making a big fuss cuz he did it.” SJ: over some woman – crying, laughing, worrying, getting angry, trembling, being nervous. I didnt think about how these emotions would appear ever again.” (meaning he didnt know these feelings of liking someone would come to him again.) DW asks if SK knows about how SJ feels in his heart about her. SJ doesnt reply.

SK remembers how YJ said “if you dont stop there will be 3 obstacles coming your way. love.” then SK remembers how AJ said you have a habit of giving your heart to a poor guy. SK tells herself “to a poor person – just pity him. when I am better off I just have to be good to him” SJ texts SK to meet tm cuz he has something to say.

SK asks YJ if she went through this too and how she overcame it. (running into obstacles) so YJ answers honestly “I didnt overcome it. I thought I did, but I didnt so this time make sure you overcome it or else your ankle will be held” (meaning love will hold SK back).  SK asks if the rest of the two obstacles are all the same. YJ says that’s correct. the second and third are all love. SK says “how did love become an obstacle in my life? I was someone who couldnt live without love. when I watched girls get married just looking at the wealth and status conditions, I thought you guys can live happily without love, so I must be different. that’s what I thought.” YJ says no one in this world can live happily without love. whether you believe or not, I cant do that either. you think I came al this way dreaming of something really big dont you? i just wanted to live a little better – like you do right now. this conversation makes SK decide to end things with sec kim (SJ)

SJ practices what to say to SK in his office after calling himself a dummy. He stammers “yesterday you were really surprised werent you? I didnt mean to – no I did mean to -no it’s not that I planned to do that- I am going crazy.” he sighs and looks down at the bracelet. he tries again and says “it’s been so long since I did this so I was clumsy and maybe seemed like a fool, but I am being sincere.”

SJ goes to meet SK and says you came early. she tells him she confirmed for the party at the shop and told them to send the clothes to the office.  SJ: you must have been alarmed a lot yesterday. I am sorry. I know it’s awkward to bring this up again. I look really weird huh? but I really wanted you to know this – that I…(he was about to say he liked her) but SK cuts him off and says “I dont want to work for the CEO through you anymore. I am really grateful to you for all your help up to now, but I dont think I should keep working like this.” he asks if it’s cuz of what happened yesterday. she acts like nothing happened yesterday. SK: whatever happened yesterday is not important to me. I told you the only thing that is important to me is that I style the CEO well. but you arent the one I should be styling and working through someone else like this…” he cuts in and asks “is it cuz you dont like me? are you uncomfortable being with me – is it cuz you dont like that?” she says “there is nothing to like or dislike. you and I just have a working relationship.” her words hurt him but he asks “is it cuz I fell into my own feelings and didnt try to find out how you feel” but she cuts him off saying “what feelings. I think you are mistaken about something now. It’s true that I have been grateful to you all this time, but you are correct, like you said, I am uncomfortable working with you. also even though I lack skills and experience, I think it’s only obvious that I should work by meeting the CEO directly and be his stylist. Please tell the CEO I want to meet him to work for him directly and if not that I cant work for him anymore. thank you for everything all this time.” she bows and walks away telling herself “you did well.” she remembers their past moments and looks over her shoulder at him. he is still sitting there so upset. she remembers how she said “that person isnt strange – I think I am strange.” she walks out. SJ suddenly runs after her, but cant find her. *I love how he puts his heart out there and follows it, just like she used to about love, but now she has to be guarded about her feelings and it doesnt sit well with her.

SJ’s sec tells him about how everything is ready for the party. SJ asks if he met (SK’s friend) AJ after the last time. sec moon asks why – did you hear something? SJ asks – so you did meet her. did you talk about me with Han SK? sec asks if Choi AJ said anything. SJ asks what would choi AJ say. what did you talk about? sec Moon: I cant remember. I think there was some secretive talk about you. SJ: a secret?

SK meets her friend AJ and asks what she said to sec Moon. AJ says I cant remember what I said to sec Moon. I dont think I mentioned to sec moon about the white rabbit. would I be crazy to say that? I’m sure I didnt. I tried to find out and it seems like he doesnt remember anything thank goodness cuz he was really drunk. SK asks what if he remembers?

SJ thinks sec moon told about his identity – that he is the CEO and not sec Kim. and that AJ told SK about him being the CEO so that’s why SK was acting like that. sec Moon says for sure I didnt say that – thankfully choi AJ doesnt remember anything at all.   SJ calls his friend DW. DW: you think SK was told that you are the CEO? SJ worries SK found out he is the CEO and will think he is a pyscho. cuz he told all those lies and deceived her.  DW asks: did you confess your feelings? SJ: I didnt get to. DW:why? SJ: as soon as I met her she said she couldnt be with me anymore. so if she finds out I am the CEO on top of that, she will wonder why a crazy pyscho played around with her. DW: reveal everything yourself. it will be worse if she hears from someone else. whether she already heard or not, meet her and reveal everything yourself and tell her why you did all this.

SK is talking to AJ outside on the phone. SK says how she was invited to the christmas party. AJ finds out clothes has been sent to SK for her to wear. AJ thinks that’s daebak cuz she got clothes too. SK wonders why the CEO did that. AJ thinks it’s cuz the CEO didnt hear anything. just trust me. forget about all that and focus on the party only. SK feels uneasy cuz what if he hears about it before she meets him. Tommy overhears that part – how SK is worried it will be the end if she goes to the party and finds out the CEO already heard. Tommy doesnt quite understand what SK is saying though cuz she never mentioned anything specific. all he heard was “it’s the end if the CEO hears” so he wonders if she is talking about Jean Thierry Cha.

Sec Moon remembers playing the truth game with AJ and AJ remembers what she told him as well.

SK sees SJ from afar and runs to catch up to him thinking he is the CEO cuz he is wearing the outfit she prepared for him. in separate elevators, SJ gets a call and AJ gets a text. sec moon tells SJ I remembered. I didnt tell her anything but she told me something. AJ texts SK saying I didnt tell, but I heard something daebak. sec kim is the CEO Jean Thierry Cha.

Just to clarify: sec Moon and AJ both think they didnt tell the other person and only heard from the other side, but they both told their secrets. AJ told him that SK likes sec Kim.

preview: SJ says “something went wrong. the one Han SK likes is sec Kim but I am Jean Thierry Cha.” DW tells him to reveal everything today and just confess

YJ asks SJ’s father to keep her secret so he says let’s take this to our graves. cuz it wont be a problem with the matchmaking (between SJ and IH) so YJ begs him not to do this.

her boss IH asks if SK came as a guest. SK says I was invited by the CEO.

SJ is throwing a hissy fit and worries “what is going on” (cuz SK likes sec Kim) so Sec Moon yells at SJ to live honestly (telling the truth from now on). SJ stops mid hissy fit and says “what did you say you punk?”  DW agrees with sec Moon and says to SJ: that’s right. a love that isnt honest doesnt have a future no matter what you do. SJ says to SK “the days we will be together – it starts now.”

    I just saw the preview for episode 15 with SJ holding one of the stuffed rabbit and SK grab it, then he asked if she wasn’t sincere or was she sincere. Gezz! I wonder what that was all about. I’m so anxious already. Just like what you said Softy, I wanted that bitterness in him to die out faster and let the lovesick puppy him come alive once again for good.

    Thanks so much for the fast recap Softy. I’m quite disappointed with tonight’s episode. 😦 I wanted to see even just a little romance from the OTP before its final episode. How come they didn’t resolve the conflict between them now. Gezzz! They better end it well tomorrow because a lot of things are still going on. I wonder how they will wrap up everything in just a single episode.

    I haven’t been in this site for quite a long time( during arang, I think). But because of Flower next door, I came back hoping for a live recap from you and I thank you for that. Still I was always a reader but not a commenter.

    But tonight, I was so desperate to see a live recap for Alice( which I was following) and I thought to give a look at this site, not expecting since I haven’t seen live recap of the previous episodes. To my greatest surprise, it’s here. Not just for this episode but for the previous ones.

    Thank you so much. You have no idea how much you made me happy. Thank you thank you thank you.

    Now after reading the ep 15 recap, I can now sleep(it’s almost 3 am already). Looking forward to your live recap tomorrow.

    Again, thank you Softy.

    Dear Softy: Thank you for sticking to the end with this drama. I was so tired with the last episodes for assuming SJ could not handle the truth so everybody had to covered it up for the rest of theirs lives. Finally, he is taking action and trying to figure it out what was real and what was a lie. He like you said is trying to see his world from her point of view. What seems so obvious to so many, it does not seems obvious to him. I am glad she is fighting for their relationship and starting with honesty as a foundation of it; it is the right way to go about it. I am glad she is not afraid to show him all her sides like he did with her. Looking toward tomorrow episode. Thanks again for your great work!! Take care.

      SJ can do a lot better than SK! There are many rationalizations for her behavior. But it is laughable for Tommy to call SK sincere. She is not trustworthy.It is a false choice to say that SJ either has to marry some spoiled rich girl or desparate SK. Even in this fictitious world there must be plenty of bright, kind, hardworking middle class girls that SJ could choose from.

    Thank you for the recap softy. It’s ended? Really? I looked forward to it for so long and it’s already ended.
    I had to laugh, her reality is looking and being with a guy who needs lots of love and attention?
    Yeah the loose ends were dealt with but pity it has to happen in the last 2 episodes. Too much romance was lost because of this. Although the back hug scene was really touching.

    Hello Softy….I’m a fairly new visitor/reader of your website, having come across it by chance when I read several postings on another site which referenced yours here.

    I have so enjoyed reading your recaps of CDDA and I wanted relay my deep appreciation for your dedication in providing the recaps of this series so promptly and thoroughly. You are a wonderful writer—insightful and thoughtful.

    I loved this series and my enjoyment was highlighted from reading your recaps. Please continue the fabulous work!

    Best regards,

    Ahh… came back to read your thoughts. I always love reading your take on it. You have such a kind heart to see the positive aspects of anything.
    Just for curiousity- usually we don’t get to see the Seoul skyline like that. Only Namsan Towers. I wonder where the house/mansion is. I am sure even chaebols don’t live so far away from central Seoul itself do they?

    * bouncing in my seat * now all I have to do is look forward to Level 7 Civil Servant I like it even more than FBND.

    Dear Softy: I have no idea how you do it, but, thank you so much for this last recap and all the others ones you are continuing doing. It was a bitter sweet ending for me; because, the writer lost me on the 2nd half of the drama. All those episodes where everyone was doing everything to protect SJ from the truth; then, nothing happened instead he started acting like an adult and figuring things out to understand them and understand her. What a dream? He can not tell that it was real but thought it was a dream when he asked her to prove it to him? Just happy that they are going into this relationship aware that they might not know each other or understand each other well, but, they are willing to work it out together. Thanks for sticking until the end when so many gave up on this drama. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
