By falling in love, S’s job just got a lot harder. She could keep her distance before cuz her emotions weren’t invested, but now it’s going to be even harder to resist the temptation to tell G the truth.  I’m more worried about G though. Just cuz he didn’t know what he was doing was a crime doesnt negate the fact that his father committed one. Knowing how strained G’s relationship is with his father, I can’t imagine it will be easy for G to accept the fact that his father was working with killers. Let’s just hope G finds that out way later down the road so he can just enjoy his newfound love for now.

So glad Level 7 came in 2nd in ratings, but I have to admit  -I really thought it would beat out Iris.

E8

Starts from the hug and S saying let’s go to the hospital first. G: I am sorry. I was wrong. Don’t change your number and don’t move. She hugs him back.

D watches the hug and remembers how S said you are my best friend. The colleague I trust and admire the most. I hope that’s as far as our relationship goes

S asks if you were run over did you report it to the police. Should I contact someone I know who is a police sunbae. He says I know a sunabe in the police force too. arent you hungry. S: you are hungry? should we go home and I can make you some food. He asks really? did your parents go back. She says oh yeah my parents are there. they are probably playing go stop and fighting

Sure enough that’s what her parents are doing. The dad is winning so she mixes up the cards

S guesses what her mom just did – mess up the table. it’s no joke. G hugs her again so she pulls away and says why are you like this suddenly – are you crazy. G: yes i must be crazy. she says just cuz they hugged once and for him to do this she thinks it’s not polite. so he puts his arm around her saying I dont know why I’m so impolite. she pulls away and says stop it.   What is this – doing this on the street. He says it’s cuz you are lovable/adorable. S: I am huh? G: What took you so long to get here. S: what? G: What took so long for you to come to me. He leans in close for a kiss but she pokes his injured arm. he says I’m hurt. She says normally when you end up liking someone, it hurts. if you come close you will hurt more. let’s just like each other and not go so far as love. He looks at the time and says 2-14- 2013 7:15 pm don’t forget – the word love came out of your mouth for the first time. she says you dont forget too.  I have a different ideal man. He asks who. S: there is someone. the ajussi next door. He asks how is your ideal an ajussi. who is the ajussi next door. she says won bin. He asks does won bin live next door to you. she asks didnt you watch the movie Ajussi? he got all shot up and rescued the little girl.  the girl was going to go to him so he backs up and says dont come close – you will get blood on you. that’s what a man should do. what are you? hugging me close and getting blood on me. G: did you get a lot of blood on you? S: dont come close. I’m more scared of the blood. He says let’s go. S:where? G: you got blood on your clothes

They go clothes shopping for her. she tries on various outfits. he says she looks post modern. she tries on a white dress so she says don’t come close cuz you will get blood on it.

During the meeting G keeps looking at S and smiling.

G is at the police station as W waits nearby. G helps make a perfect sketch of Jay

*I knew being good looking would bite Jay in the butt. people remember that face

S is reporting to the agents about IT TI and M. M might look like she is doing other stuff but her real work is just with Han.

Y worries that S looks too bright/cheerful. she might really like G and not just pretending. W says S was first in training and controls her emotions well.  Y: i wonder if we shouldnt have dragged G into this. W: while following Han, SJ died. who can we put on him (Han) when we dont know who is after him. since G is his son, no one suspects at all and Han doesnt know he is being watched. Y asks do you believe what G is reporting? W says I believe him but since Han is his father, at the last moment G might hesitate. That is when S can be good to him. the director comes in. W tells Y not to tell the director anything at all. the director asks what are you up to these days. I heard Han’s attacker showed up again– do you know anything. W: no. the director asks W: you arent lying right. W: no. director asks if W is lying so  Y says should I do a lie detector test. director says dont hide any intel and report properly. got that? W tells the man to take good care of himself

G and S are driving and he tries to hold her hand. She says it’s dangerous and makes him take his hand away but he keeps doing it. she asks if he is deprived of affection and he claims he is. they finally just hold hands. He asks should we go on a trip. She says we are now. He says this is just a drive. You wont go for sure if I say 1n2d so choose between 2n3d or 3n4d. S: they say when guys hold hands they want to hug and when you hug they want to go on trips. she suddenly say ok let’s go on a trip so he stops the car in shock. S: what’s wrong – it startled me. G: I was more startled. why are you go agreeable – you arent like this normally. S: you said you didnt like mildang (push and pull of  love) when you date you get close and then you end up going on trips and stuff.  cars honk behind him so she says hurry and go cuz it’s dangerous. He resumes driving and asks are we really going on the trip? S: yes. G: 2n3d? 3n4d? S: what do you like? G whispers: 4n5d. she agrees but says you have to introduce me to your parents first. He stops the car again. S: why again? G: why do you want to come to my home? must you do that?  S: that the two of us are dating. we have to formally greet them. G: we cant. S: why? are you embarrassed of me. G: no I am embarrassed of my parents especially my dad. she says ok. forget it if you dont want to. we wont be able to go on the trip then. So he says ok I will talk to my mom and set a date

*S did that so she could get into his home cuz it’s part of her mission.

They are at a road side cafe. G: shouldnt I greet your parents too. She says do you want to do that. he remembers her dad pulling his hair and doesn’t like the idea. G: do I have to greet them? S: later. a lot later. after we are done being hurt. G: why always be hurt.  she tells him to stop drinking his beer cuz he has to drive. G: let’s just rest and go. there is a hotel too. She gives him a distrustful look so he says we can get separate rooms. She agrees and lets him drink. G: really? I can really drink? S: of course. she orders another glass of beer. G: will a day come when we fight again.  S: there will be. we might have a big fight too. even if a day like that comes around – believe in my truth/sincerity.  G: I dont think a day will come when we fight. during that time it wasnt cuz I didn’t believe your identity I didnt believe your heart. now I believe everything about you. S: do you want to drink beer? she orders a box of beer. He says it’s nice not to fight with you and be like this

S drives them back and she can’t seem to choose a lane. she is shaky and all over the road. cars honk at her. he tells her to loosen up and hold the wheel. cuz you have so much pressure on your shoulders so you are going back and forth. S: why did you have to drink alcohol then. G: that’s why I said let’s rest and then go. S: be quiet – it’s noisy so i cant drive. G: if it’s quiet will you drive better? move the chair back a little. step on the break. she breaks hard so he says ease up a little.  she is behind a slow moving truck so she tells him to be still for a minute. she recites the driving rule book about changing lanes. he tells her to turn her signals on but she turns on the wipers instead.  she is driving on the wrong lane into oncoming traffic so they almost die. G is scared and closes his eyes. he yells at her for just checking her rear view and not oncoming traffic too.  Cars behind her honk. She gets mad about that. dont they make mistakes. * she turns on her hazzard lights. he asks why. she says cuz i am sorry to to cars behind me. G: what about me? aren’t you sorry to me. She says why are you yelling. He says ok and talks nicer.  he tells her to drive slower. She accelerates so he says don’t you know what a break is. Are you a dummy? S: a dummy? She gets mad and drives like a maniac so he begs I am sorry -I was wrong- it’s dangerous -I was wrong. go slower.

*that’s what Koreans do when they are sorry and when they want other drivers behind them to slow down cuz there is an accident or traffic ahead

Han is talking with M. he says tell your boss I will do as he asked. (he will get the technology they want from Park) so don’t touch PH. M: thank goodness you decided before it was too late. Han: If you touch my son I will turn  over everything we did to the police and you guys will be caught. M says if you open that file you gathered then you will get in trouble too for being an accomplice. He says I can do anything-even face execution- to protect my son. she says I am going to that meeting with Park too. han: do whatever you want.

S is trying to park tail end first but failing at it. G asks when did you get your license. She says 6 yrs ago. she recites the rules of parking. G: you have to pull up more. you didn’t practice during training did you. S: I am doing as I learned now. she almost hits another car. G: ya. S: sorry. change gears and go straight. he chatters on about how to park. how many times do i have to tell you. so she says stop it – I cant focus. He keeps saying stuff about how women cant drive and they make mistakes in driving so she takes offense and says it’s cowardly to look down on someone for not having ability. saying it’s a woman and being insulting. .. she loses control of her wheel so she doesnt finish her sentence. He yells I told you to reverse – how many times did I say that if you make the car’s rear end go in the car will go in.   so she asks why do you keep getting angry. G: when did I get angry. S: I am going. G: where are you going? she yells “I am going” with her countryside dialect.  She gets out of the car and walks away so he chases after her.

She is walking so he says wait up-  there are no cabs around here. she yells mind your own business. G: I am not angry. S: it doesnt matter. G: why are you angry? S: to people there are first times. a guy who doesnt acknowledge that doesnt have manners or understanding. G: what about you? all you did was talk about what you learned and didnt listen to a word I said (which is 100% true cuz she did ignore his instructions) dont you know that is unecessary pride. while practicing parking -have you even asked me once how do I do this.  if we are going to fight like this over nothing then – it would be better if ….he doesnt finish his sentence so she asks it would be better what? break up? ok then do that.  G: who said break up? arent you going to take that back. S: I wont. say it. it would be better what?  He says if we are going to fight like this over nothing then you shouldn’t have said you like me. why do people who like each other have to fight over something like this.  I wont yell again. S: you can yell. cuz I have to accept it when you get angry over something more than this. I am hungry. let’s park and eat kimbap. He grins and picks her up and carries her back to the car. she is yelling what are you doing. let me down. He says see this is how you park with confidence. if you are afraid you cant drive. Let’s do it again. From here on, when I open the door know that it means “I was wrong.  I am sorry. I wont do it again” She says from hereon if I get in without saying anything it means “you don’t have to apologize and I am not angry anymore.” She gets in the car so he asks did you just say something and get in or not saying anything and get in. She says are you getting in or not in her countryside dialect so he responds “i’ll get in” the same way she said it.

M and Jay are eating. She says you won. it will end in a few days. (she says when they acquire the technology, they can release it on the agents (NIS) and when the agents come out kill the director and we can leave this country. Jay says if we just kill the director- who will know it was our revenge. who will know those guys did something wrong. M: are you getting revenge so someone will know?  jay: I will get an apology from the director. M: those people wont apologize.  they have never done that even once. Jay: also Han PH – the technique he is using to fight is the same as what the NIS agents use. I dont know who it is.  M: as long as Han  obeys we don’t need his son but I will let you go up against him though. Jay smiles

G goes to his room and looks at the notebook he got that her dad threw at him. he looks at the notes her dad made about his village. There is a map and everything so G looks through the pages

S wakes up and greets her parents. She asks why is the monkey face down. What did it do that was wrong. She puts it back in bed. Her dad calls her over to eat breakfast. Her dad talks about gas in seoul and gas in their village (wanting the government to make improvements on small towns like his). S isnt paying any attention to him. she says I have to go to work. She says from now on my name is JW. Don’t tell anyone my name is KJ. Got that?

S is briefing the other agents- how it shows that M came in from Canada but there is very little data they can use. W makes everyone come up with a scenario with the 4 – JJ, M, Han, and Jay. the four of them are on one team. it’s possible Han wants out and Jay might not be a part of them. S recognized Jay and asks who is that person. W:why? do you know him. S: I saw him with M when he came to see her at the office. Y asks are you sure. S says I am sure. D says you only saw him for a second so can you be sure. S says he was good looking. SM: then of course you would remember.  Y tells S to get close to M. S: how can I get close to her suddenly. Y: do it well and get close. when are you going to G’s home. S says pretty soon. SM compliments S for getting a guy so fast

mom: what is this – who are you suddenly introducing? G: my girlfriend. She asks did you cause trouble? did you get her pregnant. G: mom it’s not like that. I want to formally introduce her and date.  She asks what year was she born. no matter what you have to meet a  woman born in the year of the ox or else dont even think of meeting/dating her. so G lies and says she was born the year of the ox. The mom says then that is settled – how about her  family so G says they are nice. dynamic and active.  His mom asks you met them already? did you say hello to them? G:no – it’s not like that. she says then meet her parents first. G:why? she says how his grandfather wasnt that great. so we have to do this right. the man has to go first and get permission first. Then the girl comes over and gets permission. then if the person is ok both sides agree and settle it. (get ready for marriage) so G says we aren’t going to get married just dating. She says if you aren’t planning to get married then why date? G: just cuz you date does everyone get married? mom says dont people date and then get married? G: they do. I dont know. I am just going to introduce you to her. his mom says if you arent planning to get married then don’t think of introducing us. his dad comes over so she asks are you going out when it’s Sunday. G: where are you going father. let’s go together. she shares the good news and says PH is going to intruduce the girl he is going to marry. G: mom I said not marriage just introduction. just saying “hello” so the mom says how can it be just any greeting when it’s a girl greeting us.  But his dad says go abroad for a few months. there is a friend of mine in Canada. learn about business and do some traveling so go there for the time being. G says father – I just said I am going to introduce my girlfriend. Aren’t you curious who it is. it’s the first time I am bringing someone home to introduce. The dad says do that later. the mom says she is born in the year of the ox and her family is good but Han says pack PH’s bags. he tells G to leave today and goes out

In the briefing room they yell that Park is on the move. Y gives orders for D and SM to be armed and go after him. they were loading their guns and SM shoots her gun in the office by accident and scares everyone. D has to take control of the situation. Y yells at her and says dont you even know the basic that it should have been on safety. where did you learn to handle a gun like that? who is the punk who trained you. W raises his hand. Y tells her to leave the room right now. if you do that one more time you will never hold a gun for the rest of your life. D says to S: I will go and come back. always be careful.  W keeps following Y and saying I am the one who trained her. I taught her. Y calls for S to go together.

park arrives at the meeting place. D and SM are in the car and she reports that M arrived. SM makes a comment about M and her long legs. She complains about not being able to sleep. D stares at her so she says why are you staring? am I pretty? did you fall for me? D says stop yawning and close your eyes. SM: great manners. She pulls out her gun and aims  it at him. D: what are you doing? SM: try to take it away from me. your breathing was very heavy (when he took the gun from her earlier)  He says even if it’s an empty gun and even it’s for play don’t pull your gun on a colleague. He gets out of the car and she says he has charisma

D remembers how the director told him to report about what everyone on the team is doing. Director wants D to report everything – what they are doing-how they are doing it-all the intel and everything. dont leave out anything.  D says you can get that report from our team leader. the director says W is going easy and wont tell me. he wants to do it alone.  D says how he doesnt want to do report without W knowing cuz it’s against protocol but the director says it’s a betrayal. cuz you are using the team and you might take the technology away later.  D: yes for whatever reason I cant betray my team. Director says if your team is doing something wrong, to protect that loyalty if you just sit by and watch -isnt that a bigger betrayal?  you arent answering. is it too difficult (to understand)? should I say it simply.  D: no. director: listen to me cuz I will say it simply. from the start you were on my line.so you just need to obey me. that is your mission. D: what are you talking about. director says Don’t you remember I saved you when you almost died from being shot.

Flashback to the medical ward and D getting up. director was there. he says it’s good that you are young (cuz D will recover). Did you throw the phone on those guy’s truck. D: who are you? director says that’s impressive for thinking of tracking them with the phone. when you probably werent in your right mind at the time. He tells him the injuries D suffered. thanks to you we were able to locate and target them. D asks where is everyone else. where is this place. is this the army hospital?  Director says this isnt a time for you to worry about others. you didn’t shoot the girl and follow the order.(implying that D could be court martialed for this) D asks where did you come from? are you a reporter? director says how about doing some job that is bigger -for the sake of the country. D asks for ID first. the director says  I am from the NIS. Think it over and contact me. He left his card with D.

D remembers that and makes a call to the director about Han, M, and Park meeting and that he is watching them now. M is someone they newly discovered so he will hand a file over about her. He sees G walking over so D says G is also attending

Han is meeting with his friend park with M. park says you want me to get the technology? Han tells him how much money Park will get for doing that and it’s a lot of money. Park: what if we get caught. M says that will not happen. I will let you know a way you will never be caught. Han says trust her. would I put my hometown friend into prison. G comes in and says hello to his dad and Park. Han: what are you doing here. G: I came cuz of an appointment and your car was in the parking lot. M invites G to sit down. she asks Han – he can do that right. but Han yells at G for not obeying. G: i will just say hello for a second and then go. but Han throws a cup at him and yells for him to leave right now. G: father why are you like this?  Han: if I told you like that then you should have understood. G: yes I will disappear for you- I am not doing this cuz I want to be next to you. G bows at Park and leaves

Han asks how much more do you want. Park asks are you still like that with PH. it happened when he was younger so stop being angry about it now. PH didnt do it on purpose to kill you. Han: stop talking nonsense and just reply. how much more you want. (what is the “x” amount you want) however much it is- that money I will pay you.

G gets in his car and remembers how after he was stabbed, his dad said it’s dangerous so run away. G doesnt drive away and waits

Y meets with S. Y says just cuz G says he believes you -dont let your defenses down. men say they trust but curiosity wins out. S says G wont do that. Y says what are you going to do after you go to his home to greet them. S: I have to get close with them. go often and break into the safe. Y: how about after that?  what are you going to do with G after that? S: I have to take responsibility for his heart and mine and everything. Y says you like G don’t you. S:  I cant do that huh? that’s a right an agent has huh? Y sighs and says long time ago with another colleague(agent) i had to go on a mission as a newly married couple. we were couple tees so show we got married and really acted like a newly wed couple and went to the airport, but I ran into my boyfriend who had gone on his business trip. we were really going to get married. S: what happened. Y: I cried and said I cant tell you now I will tell you later please believe me I really love you, but we broke up. after that it was scary to date. no matter happens a man who would trust me -there is no such person. Will G trust your sincerity later when he knows everything. “I deceived you but it’s true that I like you” -those words?  S: he proably wont believe it. but I will make him believe me cuz my heart is for real (her feelings are for real)

G is still waiting in the car

Jay is on the rooftop with a sniper rifle. He takes aim at the parking lot right at G in his car. Then he aims at SM. then he aims at D. Jay says the guys he wants arent here. D looks at his side mirror and Jay hits it. D makes her crouch down. She asks what is going on. he says a sniper took out the side mirror. he tells her to report this and stay put -it’s dangerous to come out. she tells him to be careful. Jay says I have to give fear for the big guys to come out.

D gets out of the car and looks up.

SM calls in the attack. W hears the news and gives orders to get help with the police to set up a road block and send out pics of the suspects. hurry.

SM watches from the mirror and sees that Han and M left together but Park left in another car. G follows.

Y gets the call and says I have to go in. Y reminds S what she said during her interview- do you remember what you said. that you wanted to make a country that gives emotion. S: yes. Y: a citizen who has been used and discarded can never be emotional about our country. if you dont have that confidence dont like G. but S says I have confidence. if I didnt have that confidence I would have taken that broadcasting exam. Y says I just gave my boyfriend a betrayal. for the sake of the country and mission, I betrayed one person.  I am the one who doesn’t have the right to be an agent and not you. she leaves

Han is drinking alone in the dark at home. G watches him from above

W goes home and his wife is really nice to him and gives him pills to take. he wonders if it’s ok to take vitamins with that drink. She asks if he has some time next week to go for some consultation about changing school to an American one. he tells her to take care of it cuz he is late. She asks for a kiss and says how happy she is these days. W: I am too. she asks how much. W: so much I am scared. Their daughter comes over and says I will be going.   The mom tells her to take her books around but the girl says I will take it when I go to the academy but the pulls on the bag to put them in. a pack of cigarettes fall out. the mom chases after her. W: her dad is working for the country and his daughter is smoking foreign cigarettes.

S goes to work and sees a present on her desk. She looks over and G smiles at her. he bought her a tablet. She turns it on and there are instructions on parking: something about the different types of parking lots that are easy to go in but hard to come out or hard to go in but easy to come out of those parking spaces. forbidden to park in cramped parking lots. for the ones that are hard ask someone passing by to help. It’s for her to start practicing parking. She looks over at him and he smiles. She writes a note on it and shows it for G to read:  I take back what I said about not taking back what I said about breaking up. G grins.

They are going to her home. S asks when can I go to meet your parents. G:soon. there is a problem at home. S: what problem? is it serious? did they say for me not to come? G: no my mom says for me to meet your parents first and then come cuz that’s the order. S: to my mom and dad? you cant. G: I am going to greet them anyway. S: yes but not today. you cant. he says I am shaking too but I am going to be brave – like a man. He rings the bell and her mom says who is it. S hits him and calls him crazy. hurry and go. G: I am ok – just trust me. her mom comes out and sees them looking like S is hugging him so her mom says you cant hold it in that much. you like it so much you are going to die. S: it’s not like that mom but she pulls S’s hair

G says I want to introduce myself formally mother and father. I am Han gil ro. the dad says what are you a one way road – what’s up with “one road” (han gil). G just stood and bowed so her mom says that one is from Seoul. her dad asks is that formal? wasnt it just nodding? so S tells G to make a big bow. G says I am Han GR – please take care of me well. but G didn’t do the bow right. the mom says look at his hand. Plus he didn’t sit properly so S makes him sit on his knees. The parents complain – are we dead people. the mom says if others see they will think this is a memorial. so S says just overlook it but her mom wonders how he was taught to be like that at his age and not know about that. S says how did you put your hand. G shows her so the mom and dad say look at that. he did send us off – we died. S explains to G: when you bow – women put their right hand on top and men put their left hand on top so G puts his left hand on top and offers to do the bow over. the dad says is this a memorial – why do it twice. the mom says he wants to kill us twice.  The dad mutter how could you not know that stuff. then he asks what does your father do. G says he does business. Her dad asks are you a chaebol? G: no not a chaebol – just a little. her dad thinks G’s family has some money. the parents go on and they lost me. it doesnt even sound Korean anymore. something about how you cant beat working with your hands no matter how much business you do. it’s like shoveling in front of a crane. S makes them stop. the dad almost says our KJ but remembers he isnt suppose to call her by that so he asks S – who are you?  S mouths her name so her dad  calls out the right name JW. He almost says our JW is a civil servant so S has to warn her dad. Her dad mutters I cant say anything so I cant talk. He tells G to go. to a guy who cant even bow properly you think I will give my daughter to you?  The mom says I cant even give you Bosohn so G says oh that (poop) dog. (the korean word means stray dog but it sounds like poop) so the mom gets insulted and asks did you see our dog eat poop. how can you call it a poop dog. just cuz you are from seoul – are you looking down on our rural dog. G says I will be going now but before that I have something to give father. G takes out the notebook and some paperwork. The dad is happy to get it back cuz he thought he lost it. he asks what is this.

G is showing the dad the paperwork he brought and her dad looks at the notes and he is happy. They talk about gas and stuff. G makes suggestions on what the dad needs. He shows him what it looks like – an illustration of it and her dad is impressed. G says how it will save energy for the whole neighborhood. It will be like an eco village. The dad hits him cuz he loves G now. He says since you came – sleep here and drink with me but the mom says sleep where.  she asks G: are you going to live here? arent you going? G: I will get going. He gives the mom  a present. if you use it for one month – your skin comes back alive and you will look 15 yrs younger. The mom suddenly loves him too and says did you eat dinner. Should I make you something. I dont know if country food will suit your taste. she gets up to cook and S smiles at G

As they go out the door, S thanks him and says it’s been a long time since she saw her mom smile like that. especially for my dad. I didnt even think of it (doing what G did).  G says I know it’s Korean for sure, but it’s hard to understand. S: for me too sometimes. D is standing there watching them walk out together

S walks him out to the front. He says your parents are nice. She says yours parents will be nice too. He says not my dad. S: dont do that. they say a parent and their child shouldnt rate each other and just accept each other. G: he has to do well to accept him. S: you accepted me too. even when I lied all the time. G: where is someone in this world who doesnt lie? S: do you lie too.  G: of course. S: to me too? He says no. S: even though it’s a lie it’s good to hear. He steps close and says practice parking well so we can take turns driving when we go on a trip. S: “that parking –  look well” She shows him what she learned and how to park. change gears. match the line of the shoulder. turn the steering well. put the rear end in. put the steering wheel back in place. He gets closer and says S – thank you. he leans in really close to her face and says for putting the monkey back in its rightful place. (tucked in bed)

The mom comes over after trying on the lotion and says he (G) left his phone. the dad is still impressed with the photos G left him

After G leaves, S turns around and D comes over. She asks what brings you here. he says I was worried. Nothing happened right. S: what? He gives his gun and says hang onto it. S: I dont need it. D: we were attacked today again. S: did someone get hurt? D: no but it’s dangerous so hold onto it. She says your mission and my mission are different. also your position and mine are different. if I need a weapon, I will judge and decide/choose. He says your position is dangerous too. When we were attacked today G was with us. she seems shocked to hear that

G realizes he left his phone behind and goes back to get it

D says no one knows whose side G is on. S: dont talk like that. G is not (on their side). he doesnt know anything. so D says don’t take his side. G is just your mission and target.  Also don’t do that again with G. S: what? D says “this” and hugs her. G comes back and sees them hugging. The look on his face is utter pain and betrayal

With this shirt on, he looked even more like an asian Mr. Spock. all he is missing are the ears and eyebrows. let’s see – a guy’s hair grows out pretty fast so maybe by E12 or so his bangs will grow out more so they can gel it out to look cool. 🙂

            Hello SS, you are very welcome!!! (about the well wishes). Thank you for your compliment about my writing on DB, it might have something to do with the fact that I write from my heart, the way I would talk :-). What you see or better, what you read, is who I am, essentially :-). I am glad that you have learned a lot from the questions I have raised, it makes the time I spent writing them worthwhile.
            I went to Soompi, looking for you, and I did find you. I didn’t know you did translations, good for you. You must be fluent in Korean. This, “I wish I could add a “s” to that moniker, but alas in my fantasy only.” Would you really marry JW if you knew him (had access to him) and he proposed? Wow! You must REALLY like him, 🙂 I appreciate your honesty regarding your feelings, I really do. I do understand your feelings as well, I have been there (not necessarily wanting to marry a SK celeb, but the attraction).

            I hope that you will get to read/see this response, and that your weekend is going well.

              Ivoire, please continue to write and contribute in DB and here when you can. What I admire about you besides your style and sincerity is that you have respect for others. Sometimes when I read certain comments, I react more emotionally than I’d like. That’s one reason why I seldom comment on DB.
              I do not know Korean at all. I translate from chinese articles which are translated from Korean. It’s not the ideal, I know but full English translations direct from Korean sources are hard to come by.
              I was half-jesting about adding the “s” to my moniker. Well, it’s those things in life you allow yourself to fantasize and joke about because you know there is no chance of it happening. I have never followed any celeb or idol in my life. This experience is new to me. There is something about Joo Won that makes people feel as if they know him and care for him. I am not sure how his fans are like in Korea but in forums like soompi and blogs here and DB, I think his fans are mostly mature adults who know how to draw the line between real and fantasy. We gush and fangirl at his good looks but admire him most for his talent, hard work and great personality.

              Have a great week ahead 🙂

              Hello SS,
              Once again, I hope that you will get to read this response. Thank you so much for your kind words, which I find very encouraging and uplifting :-). When I can, I will write here and/or on DB, especially now that I know that some people actually learn from the questions or comments that I make or ask :-).
              You said this to me: “What I admire about you besides your style and sincerity is that you have respect for others.” Thank you for saying that. As I mentioned earlier, I write from my heart and I express what I think and I ask questions when I don’t know, so those things might explain my sincerity and my style. I make an effort to have respect for others on blogs (and online in general) because I try to treat people the way I would want to be treated. It sounds cliche, however it is true. I don’t wish to use the anonymity the internet offers me to be rude or mean to people I am communicating with. I might be passionate at times, however I don’t want to be rude, and I make an effort to remind myself of that.
              So I take it that you speak and understands and reads and probably write Chinese well, as well as English, based on the fact that we have been communicating in English and that I have read some of your translations on Soompi. Even though the news articles and information for dramas are from the Chinese version, I do think that you are greatly contributing to the community at large that loves dramas (by translating) and I personally thank you for that.
              You said this about JW: “We gush and fangirl at his good looks but admire him most for his talent, hard work and great personality.” Thank you for explaining that you were 1/2 jesting (about becoming Mrs Dimples), I think I kind of thought so, however, I was not sure. You and I know that there are fans out there who believe that if asked or given the opportunity to marry the celebrity of their choice, they would do so. As I am getting to “know” JW (his works and seeing him on variety shows), I admire his talent, hard work and his humility in spite of the success and recognition he is getting (which are well deserved). He is one of those Korean celebrities I look at from afar who inspires me, to a certain extent, to continue to push myself, have a standard of excellence and give my best. He does this, while entertaining people as well 🙂
              I hope your week started well 🙂

      Hello Nonski,

      And thank you so much for the warm welcome which made me feel well… welcomed :-). Yes, it has been a long time, and I am a little surprised, but glad that you remember me (and I totally remember you, by the way 🙂 )

      Thank you also for the link, I will save it. I missed the first 30mns or so of the episode :-(, so I will have to wait for the episode to be posted on YT, so I can watch the beginning. It is very cool to watch it live though, at the same time the episode is being showed in South Korea, it makes one feel like you are a little connected to something going on in that country. I have been enjoying the show very much, despite some of the holes in the plot. It is not easy to find a drama that is tight (writing wise) and whole through and through. Quite often, they are not perfect, for many reasons, probably. It is what it is, I still enjoy them and I am learning a lot by watching them, so I am thankful for those who act in them, those who produce them, the hard work that goes into making them and all those associated with them, including the recappers and bloggers of said dramas.

      I will stop here, before I start writing a thesis 🙂 (it has been known to happen). It is very nice to hear from you Nonski, and thank you again for the welcome. That made my day! I hope you are well 🙂

        My dear Nonski,

        You are soooo sweet :-). I will relax then, about possibly “writing a thesis,” and I know Softy doesn’t mind it either based on her kind comments the few times I wrote during the OB days. I actually LOVE to write, and analyze Kdramas, it is just that I always want to be respectful of the blogger’s format and guidelines and so far, the length of the post has not been an issue, in my experience. Of course, I have encountered a couple of grumpy commenters, and I have advised them to skip my posts when they see my username, since they can guess what is coming 🙂 (usually a long post). That seems to calm them down, and otherwise, I seem to have gotten a positive response, overall.

        “you are a very eloquent writer,” thank you for the compliment. You know, I find it easy to write, maybe because I enjoy doing it so much. I write from my heart, and I write the way I would talk. So basically, by the time I am done writing, you would know exactly how I think and what I think. As you know, I also tend to be very detailed (I LOVE details, when I write and when someone writes or talks to me. I also LOVE details in dramas, especially when it comes to the romance or the bromance), and that is probably why my posts tend to be long.

        This was my 3rd time watching it live (a Kdrama) and I came across the link by accident on the 7L page on FB. Someone (maybe one of the administrators) had posted a link, and so I clicked on it (this was last Thursday). I did it again yesterday (however I was on time, which I wasn’t last Thursday, so I had missed the beginning) and today, they didn’t post that link (on FB). The MBC page I had on my computer wasn’t working any more, and I am not very computer savvy, so I wasn’t sure what to do (I tried a few things but they didn’t work). That’s when I thought of asking here. I am grateful for the additional link (Thanks SS), because it gives me some options.

        I LOVE watching the episodes live now, the image is nice and the image freezes at times, however it is still a great experience, imho. I also feel connected to South Korea somehow, when I watch a program live. Like you, I only understand a few Korean words and I am OK with that, because I really LOVE the Korean language (I am a linguist, I speak 4 different languages). I love the way the language sounds, how dramatic Koreans can be when they speak (the gestures, etc…), the onomatopoeias used in the language (which are very specific to the Korean language, it seems to me). I am (very slowly) learning to understand and speak Korean, so I welcome every opportunity I have to be exposed to the language, the culture and the people(s), I have a feeling you can relate 🙂

        You know Nonski, regarding torrents, no, I don’t know how to download them. I tried once (epic fail) and since this is my 1st computer, I am also afraid of making something go wrong with it. I am really not very computer savvy at all and so I get scarred of doing something wrong, and I don’t have anyone here to help me fix things, if something goes wrong. I would like to know how to download them however, because I read that the image is much better with them (like HD, I think). Maybe you could help me? You would have to talk to me as if I were 5 however, telling me step by (single) step, what I am supposed to do. Please let me know if you could, thanks 🙂

        If you don’t mind my asking, in what part of the world are you? What time is it where you are? Do you write on DB under “Nonski” as well?

        Oops, I think I just wrote a thesis :-). This is what you get for encouraging me, Nonski :-)!!!!!

He could really be hurt if he finds out about his father’s involvement with those 2 killers and the fact that he’s just being used by the NIS to be able to get on to his father and those killers. I’m just glad that S is there to protect him with her love although she could also hurt him with all the lies that she had told him about her true identity.

    but the ending…..oooohh……However, I don’t think it will turn out the way we fear cuz I cannot see Seo Won coming up with any more excuses. Probably Gilro will see Seo Won pushing Do Ha away before they noticed him, then he will get into another fight with Do Ha. Probably end up with Seo Won taking Gilro’s side, crushing Do Ha’s heart

      i got so curious why torrents for Iris and Wind came out faster than Level 7 so I checked out the competition. I had to fast forward a lot of Iris cuz I found it slick but boring story wise cuz it’s too complicated. plus that lead guy’s hair is way worse than the one JW is sporting now. I also kept getting Midas flashbacks and I just couldnt stare at that lead guy in Iris anymore. plus I dont like the lead actress either. her acting is so vacant – like she is missing every emotion. it’s hard not to yawn around her. So I totally pass on Iris.
      I shouldnt have watched Wind. that camera work is making everyone look so gorgeous – even the guys. I kept wondering what JW would look like in that soft light and I had to tell myself to stop that. the story itself is too makjang for my taste, but I have to say – there is something very intriguing about the acting. it resonates even though you dont want it to. I have to be loyal to JW so I wont watch it anymore, but down the line – Wind is going to be tempting I just know it.

      I have to admit something I didnt say on the recap but when SM shot her gun in the office by accident, I cursed. thank goodness Y told her off cuz it felt good that SM got yelled at. but then in the car with D, SM pulled her gun on D again just to get him to try to take it away from her so I swore twice on one recap. I am all for flirting and trying to get the guy you like, but not when you are on duty and not with a loaded gun. cuz that gun was loaded – hopefully this time with the safety on unlike last time in the office. it doesnt matter – pulling that gun on him while they were on stake out duty was ridiculous. but what D did was even worse. he told her to shut her eyes and rest them for a while. what crazy agent does that. both of you need to be alert in case the bad guys come out earlier than expected. after the sniper attack D told her to stay in the car cuz it’s dangerous and to report it in. ummmm – arent you both agents? isnt danger sort of part of the job? how many more times is D going to protect all the female agents. I know i know this is a romantic comedy and with all the flirting the girls did during training I should have expected this stuff, but I was raised on dramas like 24 and La Femme Nikita so my expectations of spy stuff are pretty high. it’s not my fault I’m used to some sense of logic and common sense from the characters.

      normally I would write a new intro for each recap after the show airs, but the torrents for this is coming out so late I run out of time for screencaps even. so I hope no one thinks I didnt like the episode overall cuz I did. I’m so sad to hear this ep came in third in ratings but since the numbers are so close, I suspect the ratings will continue to fluctuate for a while longer. I really expect Iris to drop to 3rd soon and stay there. they just cant stay on top cuz it’s flashy, but way too dull. the real contender is Wind. it might be predictable story wise, but the cinematography and subtle acting is going to be its main appeal. I never did watch Padam Padam so now I feel like I know what I missed out on. plus the only person I like is Bummie and I forgot he was in this. 🙂

        I am with you on this, Softy, many of us really want to love this drama and look away from its flaws but some things are just so incomprehensible and cringeworthy. The problem is that this drama is not totally basket case, it has many good and memorable moments. Some scenes were a hoot, really hilarious and yet some so downright stupid and unbelievable like the scenes involving Sun Mi and Do Ha in this episode. After ep 5, I told myself to overlook these inane stuff but they still bother me. I can enjoy slapstick comedies where often, things are illogical but hilarious. This scene is just logical and sadly not funny at all.

        That said, Joo Won, CKH and Chansung are doing an amazing job here. Without them, this drama will fail. Joo Won was wee bit awkward in the first episode or two, this being his first shot at comedy. But he is so natural at it now. Without witty one-liners, he still cracks me up with his expressions and I absolutely love that scene where he bowed to Seo Won’s dad, I replayed it countless times today. Gilro could have easily become an annoying childish character but Joo Won played him to perfection with funny and cute. In my opinion, I would say he has succeeded in comedy. I was a skeptic of the romance part of this drama but Joo Won is pull no stops as usual in his acting in love and I am starting to warm up to CKH. Their love story is not convincingly written but the love lines are good. Add to that, superb acting from Joo Won and CKH, I think it might work after all.

        I also think that unless IRIS steps up, they might lose more viewers. I read more good reviews and comments about TWTWB. Although I am not a fan of makjang, I am curious enough about it.

        I have never been so bothered about ratings before. For Bridal Mask, I would say that the ratings did not reflect how good the drama was. I love it so much that ratings didn’t matter. Or maybe because it led the other 2 almost all the way, I never had to grapple with it. But aside from ratings, my concern is more on the quality of this show. With such a talented cast, it will be real sad if it’s let down by things such as inconsistent writing and misses, one too many.

    Thanks Softy.

    I’m just wondering, if Joo Won not in this drama, and his in The Wind or IRIS, will I watch him there?

    The answer is, OF COURSE. Haha. I will follow him wherever he goes.

    I wrote comment in your Wednesday’s recap, on how come Seo Won is not a good driver. Girl, you’re an agent, you don’t know how to drive. That doesn’t make sense. Now, I wonder is this just another lie from Seo Won, acting like she’s just another plain jane. I still can’t get the agent vibe from Seo Won, only one time when he sneaked into Gil Ro’s room. Other than that, she still not shows anything yet.

    Come on show, I know this drama is not like the original movie, but in the movie, the lead actress was awesome. She even rides a jetski in her high heels.

    Next week, I think Gil Ro will push Do Ha, fight with him and accused him trying to steal his girlfriend. Seo Won will never blow up her cover, not yet. She need to meet his parents, get into Gil Ro’s house and do her job. She almost there, taking full advantage of his obsession with her. Poor Gil Ro. Gil Ro is blinded by love now. He believes everything what Seo Won said. Gosh.

    BTW, check this link from tubler. Uee’s me2day’s update dated 15.2.2013.  She was promoting her hobae, the boy group NU’EST new single ‘Hello’.  Is that a papercup telephone :-).

    Really.

    Come on Uee help out your Oppa by boosting up the rating.

    But frankly I think our Joo Won already obtained his star power :-). I hope the drama will do well and speed up the spy stories without loosing balance of its romance & comedy.

    Looking forward for more back stories of Gil Ro and Do Ha.

    Can Seo Won act like a real spy now. You go girl, go kick some ass.
