Of all the things that got to me tonight, it was that pill bottle. When she finally found it and it had that calming affect over her, I just stopped breathing. I thought she was going to take it to end her pain, but it proved to be more useful in an unusual way. Even though Soo lied and said the pill was an amulet, I just realized that pill really is one for her now. Just by holding it alone she was able to calm herself. Just like Soo said, it’s acting as a lucky charm that is warding off her pain, anguish, and despair. It’s buying her more time to spend with her brother like this – really living being happy and not just going through the motions. That medicine is like a quiet reminder that it’s there if she needs it, but it prompts her to keep enduring the pain a little longer till it passes again. How can an object that was supposed to end her life keep sustaining it. Just that thought alone brought tears to my eyes.
I find it adorable that Soo still has problems making eye contact with Young when she says stuff he loves to hear, but he knows he shouldnt like it so much. it’s not like she can see him, but he continues to act like any other love sick guy out there and cant bring himself to face her sometimes.
I keep trying to summarize this like a fast recap but this drama is all about the delivery – how they formulate their questions and answers is part of the mystery, suspense, and intrigue so I don’t want to take any of that away by paraphrasing every scene.
these two are so photogenic there are no bad shots.
Note: The amount of money that Soo needs to pay off Moo Chul in US dollars is around 7 million. I used the Korean way of saying it as “78 uk” throughout all the recaps cuz I find that sometimes I need to write “oppa” and “dongsang” instead of “older brother” and “younger sister/sibling” cuz it flows better in the conversation and dialogue. There is a cadence I didn’t want to disrupt too much.
after sec wang discovers Soo hiding behind the door young asks is it oppa. wang: no why do you think that. young: I thought it smelled like oppa in the room. wang: maybe he came and went. he isnt here now. wang types into her phone and holds it up for Soo to read. I am going to turn the music on and when the sound comes on leave this room so Young wont suspect. Soo sneaks out as the music plays
sec wang goes over and looks at the crooked painting and sees a fingerprint. Young says it’s bothering her so leave the room.
Soo hides the stethoscope just as wang comes in. she says we need to talk
as jin sung and hee sun are running off he gets a text from Soo so she asks what did he say – did he rob the safe? she reads the text: I was caught – don’t call me.
as wang and soo sit and drink, he remembers the video of Young as a kid saying how wang lied so Soo cleverly thinks up a way to turn the tables on her. she asks: what is the reason you went inside Young’s room. he says he needed Young’s diary. wang says it’s in Braille so you wouldn’t be able to read it so why do you need it. he says Braille can be translated and the reason why I needed it was to find out about you cuz I was curious. was it really not possible to correct young’s eyes/vision? did you by any chance prevent it when it was able to correct. if it wasn’t Korea, America or Japan – it’s PL group that has money so why couldn’t you have been able to fix her vision if every possibility was looked into. wouldn’t it? she says I heard from Mira that you need 78 uk so what if I give you that money right now right here – if I ask you to leave Young’s side right away – what would be your choice? Soo blinks once from either shock or temptation
Young goes to Soo’s room to search for that pill. she remembers how Soo called it an amulet. she finally finds it and hugs it close. she remembers how Soo said his friend had a hard time to obtain it and if you take it when you want to die – anguish, pain, or despair can all disappear in a moment and make your heart comfortable. Just by holding it Young’s frantic breathing subsides.
wang: how about it – I will give you that money so with it – will you leave this home. Soo stares evenly back at her without blinking this time and says I will just act like I didn’t hear that offer. wang: even though I give you the 78 uk you need right this moment –you wont leave? Soo: I have Young’s will. if it was for money and not Young, there were a lot of ways. saying you would give me money was a mistake. listening to those words I am suspicious of you for real. it’s ok if you tell the truth that I went into Young’s room to her. also before I leave I will properly suspect you. the housekeeper interrupts for a second to say the bank called cuz wang contacted them and she couldn’t ask Young cuz she is sleeping but the bank wanted to know if wang wanted to transfer the safe’s contents so wang says tell them I will call back. wang tells Soo – you can remain and watch me closely and your word that you came for Young’s sake – I can either believe it or be suspicious of it. right? it would be nice if Young knew. if she knew there were so many people around her who loved her she would be a little less lonely. right? he says I have an appointment and leaves. as he leaves he hears her make her call. she calls lawyer jang to ask to meet now to discuss about young’s brother. I will tell you when you arrive.
the pill bottle is empty and Young is asleep.
jin sung calls Soo crazy for not accepting that money. why didnt you – you should have. give me sec wang’s number – if you dont I will ask for it. Soo: it’s a trap. Jin Sung: a trap? what trap? hee sun hits him and says this is why I cant sense your charm. she points out that Soo can’t be brazen cuz he is not the real one he is the fake. if Soo takes the money wang will have her suspicions confirmed and call the police. jin sung wants Soo to leave here cuz he will die since sora has shown up too. soo: either way I die. change plans. let’s go with threatening wang. hee sun says the video of Young has a kid in the secret room – how wang didnt take her to the hospital – how wang tried to give Soo 78 uk – how she is using Young’s fortune like water like it’s her fortune-another reason is myung ho has a woman but making him Young’s fiance so wang and myung ho are working together. and Soo can say “I know that for the past 21 yrs you have been planning to get all of PL group so give me money 78uk no 100uk.” jin sung is proud of her for being so smart to come up with that last one and tells her to stop using her intelligence for bad stuff now since she saved Soo’s life – live nicely from here on. hee sun: I am going to live nicely from tm on. while threatening awful wang and not nice Young. jin sung worries that before they can threaten wang what if she finds out about Soo’s identity. Soo says i have to act before she finds out. soo tells them to keep following myung ho around and he will go and get proof to catch wang. Soo forgot his phone and took the wrong coat so hee sun says you seem excited. Soo says cuz I get to live. after he leaves hee sun calls young and leaves a message. call me cuz I want to apologize for last time. jin sung asks what she is up to. she wants to check if soo is really excited cuz he gets to live or if he is excited cuz he is happy that he gets to be by young’s side for longer. I want to confirm it. why.
*hey they filmed this scene at the De chocolate in apkujeong rodeo street.
wang has the safe emptied and takes the glass off the painting and packs it up separately cuz of the fingerprint. (she is keeping it cuz it’s proof Soo touched the safe and she can get the police to run his fingerprint if she needs to) she checks the itemized list of contents from the safe. Soo comes in and sees what happened
Young is meeting with the lawyer. she finds out her safe contents will be moved to the bank. why? he says cuz it’s not safe. she says my father made that safe and until now … but he interrupts and says there are too many people inside the home. Young: sec wang is suspicious of oppa isnt she? he says I brought Soo over but for the first time I’m wondering if I was wrong to bring him. I think that he might not be of help to you. dont trust Soo too much. young: if I cant trust oppa – what about me who cant do anything alone -who can I trust and live? her friend mira brings her drink over that Young likes. but Young gets emotional at the lawyer and says: if I cant trust oppa the only one in the world I can share everything with -cant trust sec wang – cant trust you cuz you love sec wang- and my friend here Mira too I cant trust. Young says to Mira – I know you get paid by sec wang to watch me (as in spy on her) when I was younger and mistreated you – you must have hated me so I understand. cuz you are poor you must have needed money. dont make excuses cuz I understand plenty. mira leaves. jang says if sec wang is suspicious of your brother there must be a reason. I cant tell you everything but for certain there is a reason. Young: I know what that certain reason is. she doesnt want to let me have anyone next to me. like now she is making me lose my one friend. making me lose my oppa. so that in the end there is only sec wang left next to me. exactly like herself – she is trapping me at a home that is like a prison and making me cold to people. in the end she is making me so terribly lonely. Young gets up and leaves.
the guy who works at the cafe who caused the burn mark goes over and tells Jang that young’s brother Soo is a little strange.
Soo goes to the secret room and takes some video tapes.
Young is sitting outside crying. Jang watches her from a distance. wang pulls up in her car.
Soo is watching a video of Young in a school uniform in her teens. Young says to the camera: I clearly heard. the day before yesterday when I went to the hospital with Mira just the two of us -when I got my eye exam the doctor said my eyes werent like this cuz of the tumor, he said it was cuz of RP he said if only I took better care from the start I wouldnt have to live being trapped at home like now. he asked “why did you do that. have the surgery. there is hope.” but today that doctor said I heard it wrong. no I clearly heard him (correctly). sec wang – I know you did this. I should have guessed when I said Mira was going to the hospital with me today and sent you away. sec wang – I am sorry. it wont end with today. I am not alone. I have a brother…when my brother comes he wont leave you alone for making me this way. Young is crying really hard. Soo stops the tape and remembers how Young cried and said: tell me I can trust you. that I can really trust you oppa. please oppa at least you – that I can trust you.
soo gets a call from Young and has to clear his throat and compose himself before answering. she asks where are you. heard you had an appointment and went out so are you still outside the home? soo: yes outside. Young: arent you coming home? soo: I’m on my way now. where are you? he walks over and sees her. young lies about her location: I’m outside the home too. you said you were on your way home. are you almost there. should I go and meet you? where should I go. towards Joon oppa’s cafe or the intersection by the grocery store. soo: just go home cuz it’s cold. young: I’m not cold – which way are you coming. I’m at a place that’s close to the cafe and store. where are you? the maid comes over asking why arent you coming in -hurry and come in so Young shushes her. Soo: the intersection by the store. Young: that’s good. I can be there real soon. see you later. he watches her walk out and follows behind her quietly. then he runs across the street like crazy to get there before her. he calls out I’m proud of my dongsang for going around at night so well. young: dummy – night or day it’s the same (for me) They smile at each other.
jang puts the glass in his car and gets into wang’s car. she wants him to get the fingerprint checked and tell Young tonight for her and her brother to both get blood and DNA tests. ever since that person first came here and didnt want the inheritance/fortune I suspected he might not be the brother. to give up the group’s fortune for his dongsang is something that just doesnt happen. jang asks what if after the fingerprint, blood, and DNA tests Soo is really the brother then what. sec wang: we have to chase him out cuz he is a dangerous brother to Young. if he isnt a brother we have to catch him (arrest him) for fraud/con. Jang says for a proper DNA test we need Young’s cooperation but she wont give permission and I cant do anything without her cooperation. he says he heard what Young’s father said. no matter what happens dont make Young feel lonely. find her brother for her. not leaving anything in the will for Soo was to test her brother to see how sincere he is with Young. wang thinks there is no other certain way than this to find the real brother. Jang: for the first time Young has started to believe in a person – we finally got what we wanted so much. giving affection to a person and receiving affection -give trust and receive trust. even if Soo came to Young for money, if he asks for 78 uk it is money we can give. just leave it alone. even if Young has Soo, next to her side your place is there.
Soo is shocked and asks so where is that medicine. Young: that medicine really must be an amulet. today when I was taking a nap I held it tightly in my hand and slept -like a lie my heart felt comfortable – it was so uncanny. Soo: give me that medicine. Young: dont worry I wont take it (ingest it) easily. it’s the only one in the world. when I take it I will get permission from you cuz that medicine is between us. I promise. or you can sleep next to me whenever I want. Soo quickly makes the pinky swear. Soo: ok but for now I will keep that medicine -give it to me. Young: I will give it to you when we get to the room. also when I need it you have to give it to me anytime.
myung ho calls Young saying how he kept calling all afternoon but she didnt pick up. Young: I took a nap. he tries to bring up what his parents said today but she says i didnt hear anything. let’s do the formal meeting with the parents next time that we pushed back today. please tell your parents I overdid it/overreacted and be sure to tell them i am sorry
Young: do I like Lee myung ho? I think I like him. Soo doesnt look at her as he asks: what’s it like when you meet him. do you feel a flutter (in your heart). Young: If I feel a flutter does it mean I like him. Soo: most people. Young: then I like you. Young tries not to react to that and says: marrying Lee myung ho – think it over again. Young: I dont have a choice. people say those words “I fell for him at first sight.” I dont have eyes to fall for someone at first sight. I just have to live with the person who said he likes me. you have no interest in the company. without that person’s help I cant manage the company. let’s talk about something else. which friend did you meet today? what did you do when you met. go to a singing room? a cafe? or a club? Soo: have your eyes tested. let’s do it again. before I leave if i can fix your eyes I want to do that. if sec wang tries to prevent that -you have me so dont be afraid. young: I’m not scared of her – I was when I was younger but not now. we just use each other. soo: then there is no reason you cant have your eyes examined/tested. Young: I get them tested. then have surgery and while I am having a hard time during that time -you will leave? it’s not like you arent going to leave. you are going to leave. I’m not saying dont leave. I would leave too if I was you. you have work you want to do and a place you want to go. in this prison like place – taking care of a dongsang who cant see -that’s no fun. You feel sorry dont you? if you feel sorry..he finishes her sentence: should we go play? she stands up and says that’s it. let’s call hee sun and jin sung too. let’s go on a MT (membership training). last time when mira went on a MT and said how fun it was I was so envious. let’s call everyone and go together. Soo stands and tousles her hair and says ok let’s do that.
next day in the car the four of them are on their way. Soo’s voice narrates his text to sec wang – Young and I are going on a trip with friends. after Young wrote her will out to me – if something happens to Young the first suspect will be me of course. I will be careful.
they are all having fun sledding in pairs. Soo and Young make it down first. Soo says we won. Jin sung: we could have won. young: did we really win? Soo: what did I say – I said that we would win for sure. he rolls over and kisses her forehead instinctively. hee sun watches that. Soo takes photos with young. he tells her to smile brightly. they get up and leave without even noticing the other two. jin sung asks : are you envious. should I do that for you too? she scowls at him and gets up.
while Soo is preparing food with ji sung hee sun sits with Young. Hee sun goes over and grabs Soo’s phone to look at his pics and tells them how to cook. she says to Jin sung – make sure you get the taste right. if the soup is salty I am going to spit it out in your mouth. so jin sung tells soo: I regret loving her. soo: you are perfect for each other. jin sung asks what are you doing with hyung’s phone. she says looking at the pics. young asks her if the pics came out well. hee sun grunts yes. young: what about the ones with oppa and me – it’s our first pic taken together. is it ok? hee sun gets annoyed and says why keep asking – if you are so curious look for yourself then. she realizes her mistake so she says they came out well – you look really really pretty. young says soo’s cutting sound is awkward and strange. soo: what is strange when I am cutting well. young: it sounds like a normal person’s – it doesnt sound like the knife skills of an italian chef. soo says those who use knives well work in chinese restaurant kitchens and italian chefs have knife skills like mine. also this place has a lot of great food so why must you eat the potato soup I make. Young: yes. hee sun says to him: Oh Soo it’s hard raising a dongsang. young asks hee sun: what is my brother’s charm/attractive quality? he is someone your older sister liked. even though she knew she shouldnt like him -there must be a reason why she liked him. that is why I am asking. what is my brother’s charm that you know. hee sun: that he isnt totally bad. it’s true that he is a playboy, lies really well, temper is terrible, and selfish but somehow you cant say that is all of Oh Soo. Young: I dont know what that means very well. hee sun simplifies it in slang. then she changes the subject saying I’m starving. hurry and give me food.
at night Young asks for some beer but soo says no cuz you had a headache yesterday too. young: then tell me about Oh Soo. what “soo” is he? like yours “to protect?” it’s better for you to tell me or else I will keep asking so you cant sleep all night. Soo: “tree” Soo. when he was young, his mother abandoned him under a tree so that is why he is “tree” Soo. young: then that person must not have gotten to see his mother’s face even once? Soo: he said he saw her when he was in his teens. she suddenly showed up at his school and gave him $58 and left. that’s all of it. Young: that’s too bad. is that why that person became a con artist cuz of the scar in his heart. soo: what a good excuse. that guy was that kind of guy originally – he was like trash. Young: did he have someone he loved? Soo: at one time but the moment that girl said she had his baby – he didnt look back and threw away the girl. but that girl followed behind him and got into a (fatal) accident. young: how old was he when that happened? Soo: 19. the girl and him – 19. like you – at one point -that guy who was thrown out like the trash by his parent – I understood why he wanted to live like trash and agreed with him. but loving a guy like that and throwing away home, giving up on education, and not being able to take responsibility for the girl who had his baby- that is something I cant forgive. Young: what are you to forgive that person? what a person can do for another person is not fogiveness but comfort. when I was first diagnosed with a brain tumor what I wanted was comfort too. but like you oppa people didnt comfort me. they were cruel and gave courage to a six year old. “it’s ok Young – surgery wont be scary- it’s ok – you can win. treatment is nothing.” soo: what else could those people say besides that. Young:”you dont have to be ok. you dont have to be ok. it’s ok to be scared. it’s ok to cry.” if people said that after crying a day or two I would have been ok. but maybe cuz I didnt hear that then even now when I think about back then when I was 6 -I keep crying. wouldnt that person be like me too? Soo is barely holding back his tears and emotions, but he loses his struggle and tears flow. young: at an age where he cant even remember he was thrown away under a tree. a mom who showed up one day and only gave him $58 and left. that wasnt enough and the one girl he loved in the world at the young age of 19 he lost her. he didnt get any comfort from anyone. Soo continues to cry silently. Soo: but still not taking responsibility for his baby was wrong. Young: it was wrong. a very big wrong. but that person was only 19 when he couldnt even take responsibility for himself. at that age -a baby who might have the same life exactly like him- he must have been very scared. you made a mistake. thanks to you I got more curious about that person today. let’s sleep. she gets up and leaves so Soo finally allows himself to cry freely.
next morning he goes to check in on her sleeping.
he goes for a walk and young calls out oppa? soo: you woke up?
sora gets a call from myung ho to meet today.
sec wang tells myung ho you cant do that. why take that person to the party. myung ho says i made an appointment with sora today. then we will know about that brother Oh Soo’s identity. Myung ho worries if Sora verifies that Soo is the real brother -what to do about the suspicions that will arise if the board members find out they werent informed about Soo. wang thinks it’s dangerous cuz if they find out the president’s son is here they might make young step down from her position. he wants wang to tell young right now that Soo tried to rob her safe. wang says the frame that was the proof was taken by jang so I dont have the proof now. for now you meet sora.
soo tells her not to be stubborn and go all the way to the house but young wants to walk cuz it’s only a 5 min walk from here cuz she feels stuffy from being in the car too long. she tells him to go since he has an appointment.
as she walks away she feels pain for a second
as Soo drives, he remembers last night as he tucked her in. she said I am sleepy. sleep well. soo: young -if you could see – what do you want to see the most. tell me. i just want to know. what do you want to see the most. young: you right now. no matter how much I imagine – no matter how much I touch – I dont know so you oppa.
jin sung and hee sun are going to follow myung ho today
soo goes to see a doctor he knows at the hospital and calls her noona. he says i have something to ask – I know some kid and her eyes …but the doctor says go to ophthalmology. he tries to give her Young’s medical history but the woman pulls away from him. she says do i look like i dont have anything to do. to the extent that i would speak with human trash like you. how dare you talk to me. she walks away
young is on the phone and says i will go now to get it. she feels pain again.
sora asks what moo chul is saying. he says it’s nonsense. your Oh Soo is the son of PL group. I was deceived too. no wonder he was so good to Oh Soo. the Oh Soo I am talking about is the nice one who was the PL group’s son. anyway your Oh soo is putting on a show right now pretending to be him. with the nice Oh Soo’s younger sister, he is having a sweet dating relationship. she asks is everything you told me now for real? he says go to PL group and ask to meet the son then. then you will know right away. since you are on your way to meet myung ho now. ask him to let you meet Soo. she asks for Soo’s number. but moo chul says he cant cuz it’s connected with president kim. do well so president kim doesnt know. even if you are jealous over Soo, he owes me so be careful. she leaves. moo chul goes out too
young is at the department store picking up something and asks for it to be wrapped. as she leaves she feels pain again. young says im ok my head just hurts. the woman says you dont look well should we help. young asks to be escorted to the front entrance and to call a taxi.
sora gets in her car and drives off. a guy calls kim to tell him how sora came out of moo chul’s home just now and got in her car, but moo chul comes over and tells Kim sora is on her way to PL group. she was asking about Soo. after he hangs up, the guy says you will regret not keeping me to work under you.
soo calls to meet but moo chul says you shouldnt be meeting me now. sora is on her way to meet myung ho. i told her you were pretending to be the PL group son. but I dont know where they are meeting. i will let her know you are going there and find out her location and tell you. hang up.
soo gets a call from the department store clerk who is with young. she used Young’s phone to call. the woman asks are you young’s brother. he says yes. who are you?
young is telling them not to call the hospital. please. the woman says your sister is very sick right now. she wont let us call the hospital. she asked me to call you. he says what are you talking about. I took her home. where is that place. I will go there right away. he gets a call but ignores it. he drives to the department store and leaves his phone behind
he finds young and rushes over to her. sora sees them. soo: young it’s me oppa. young: you came. she faints so soo asks the woman to call an ambulance. he picks up young to carry her out and locks eyes with sora.
Soo: the doctor says it’s strange that you are hurting like this.
Young: I am scared of my pain too- if i do have a tumor, I will probably hurt again
Jin sung says to Soo: there is big trouble. myung ho and sora are meeting now.
myung ho points to the photo of the real Soo and says is this the right person? sora says no the one I met (dated) is the person next to him (Soo)
Young: even if you dont give me permission sec wang, I am going to the party with oppa.
sec wang: ok I hope you have fun.
young sings happy birthday: i hope you like my birthday present.
soo: out of all the many thoughts that I could play around with love -for the first time in this dangerous play/game – i am positive I will be the one to get hurt the most
sec wang says invite sora to the party and let’s let the two of them Soo and sora meet there
*one of these days his lips will make contact and she is going to know 100% for certain he is not her real brother. He will also confirm he can’t pretend to be her brother anymore either cuz now he wants to be more than that – her first and last love.
We have all been there. The temptation to resist doing something we know we shouldn’t do, but how we muster up the strength to stamp down that urge to give in says a lot about our ability to control our will power. For a lot of these characters, their will powers are being tested left and right. Some gave in like Hee Sun while Jin Sung let Soo suffer in the cold for a few hours before he told Soo how he felt. The toughest one to watch was Soo holding back an overwhelming urge to kiss Young. It was like his whole being was screaming to do it, but he knew what the price would be and he wasn’t ready to risk it all just yet. His defenses are going to weaken each time he sees how happy he can make Young and by sharing in that joy, he will come to recognize an emotion he hasn’t felt in such a long time. They have both been abandoned in life by the people who should have wanted to hold onto them the most so how poetic is it that they found each other. By giving each other so much happiness, it might chip away the resentment they’ve been carrying in their hearts so that they can finally carve out a life worth living together.
I know myself all too well and these are never going to remain sporadic scene translations alone. Sooner or later they are going to end up being full recaps so I might as well just make a post for them like I did for Alice. The other reason was typing and editing from that tiny comment box was driving me crazy last night cuz I thought I would go cross eyed since the font size was too small. Plus this drama is too gorgeous not to include just a few screencaps. I have so much to say about this drama, but no time to write anything the same night cuz recapping two shows barely gives me any time to sleep. I guess my comments will just have to wait for the next day.
There is one additional reason why I decided to pick this up at the last minute. Now that FBND has ended, I need some distraction to fill that void. What better than a melodrama so that I will actually have a legit reason to suddenly burst into tears at any given moment. I can just blame it on this show and its angst.
Note: E6 was not done in full – just certain scenes.
Soo tells young she cant have the pill cuz it’s his. he tells her to turn and it’s 3 steps to the door
Young asks to sleep together. I cant sleep well but when I slept with you yesterday I slept very comfortably so cant we go to my room and sleep together? he yells I told you – (brother sister) siblings shouldn’t sleep together. oppa is a guy too. also you have to be careful with men. starting from where and how much do I need to teach you. young: all – you have to teach me all of it if you are my oppa. hearing it from you – it was the first time I knew that an oppa is a man too. I thought an oppa was an oppa. I stopped after we parted when I was 6. the truth that if you grew up you became a man – I still don’t understand. I’m sorry. I wasn’t normally like this but after not being able to see I got selfish.
the wind chime makes soo go to her room to close her window. young says if you aren’t going to sleep together with me open the window. I have to listen to the chime for sleep to come. soo: you will catch cold – just sleep. young: more than sleep not being able to sleep is scarier. go so I can sleep. she opens the window again so he shuts it and says let’s sleep together. young smiles and says: I won. she pats the spot next to her so he gets in bed and says I cant let you sleep on my arm (as a pillow). she shares how she is thinking of marriage. I thought I was an insomniac, but I must not be since I slept next to you and was able to sleep -maybe I miss a person. what do you think of myung ho? Soo: since he is someone your dad – I mean father chose, he must be ok. young: don’t think of what dad thought – what do you think. soo: he doesn’t seem like much fun. young: like you? he is good to me – yells at me – is warm – is cold. long time ago lawyer jang said I shouldn’t meet a man like you no matter what. soo: if you know be careful. I am not a man. I am your oppa. be thankful to the heaven. she laughs then asks what happens if you eat that medicine from a while ago. soo: I told you it will make you comfortable. young: couldn’t you really give me that medicine? she offers up the new will in exchange. he remembers her offering that before for the promise that he would kill her. young: let’s do this. you keep that medicine and give it to me when I need it. he tells her to sleep. she takes that as an agreement and makes him pinky swear. young: now you made me 2 promises. if I ask you to stay you stay you promise to stay by my side at anytime and the medicine belongs to both of us. answer me. he agrees and she snuggles against him. do you know there is a really good scent going from you? it’s not a scent from soap or facial products. I don’t know what it is but it smells really good. he tells her to sleep.
a great scene between sec wang and soo. she asks what he did with young who doesnt know anything – who doesnt even know about men -what did you do sleeping on the same bed in one room. soo: I held her and slept – so what. did you know she had insomnia. while you and everyone in this home were were sleeping comfortably – young was alone unable to sleep and up all night. did you know that? that young doesnt know anything? why did you make it so she didnt know anything? you said you were her mother. then you should have taught her. that she shouldnt sleep in the same room with her oppa if she is all grown. you should have made sure she already knew that, but she doesnt know that. she doesnt know anything. in front of me young is 6 yrs old like when we parted and i am 8 yrs old to her. when she couldnt sleep – why did she need me – even though I am her oppa – a stranger who showed up after 21 yrs instead of you who is like a mother to her. even though she was suffering from insomnia why didnt she ask for help from you who is like her mother – why couldnt she tell you that truth – why couldnt she trust you – what the hell is that reason I wonder. sec wang’s idea is to get young married off if she needs someone to sleep by her side. since young doesnt want wang and soo is leaving then myoung ho can solve the problem. so she wants to move up the wedding so soo can attend before he leaves.
hee sun really does like soo as a guy cuz jealousy made her tell Young the truth. when Hee Sun finds out that Soo gave Young a ride on a scooter – after he swore he would never get on one after her sister’s death. that he wouldnt even give Hee Sun a ride when she asked, that was her breaking point. So Hee sun tells young the truth about soo.
while Soo and Jin sung run over to the cafe Young asks what con. hee sun: do you know that there is two Oh Soo and not one. Young: I know. I heard from my brother there is my brother and a con artist Oh Soo. also a year ago I met the person who had the same name as my brother. hee sun: did your brother say he is nice and the other Soo is a con artist? young: he did. hee sun: wow total daebak. listen well. it’s the other way around. the Oh soo your brother talked about is totally nice. your brother betrayed the nice Oh Soo. right now your brother is a total con, gambler, and total player. he really knows how to get a girl to like him. you fell for it didnt you. younger sister my foot. cuz he needed money, he was using a girl who cant see. Soo arrives just then. Hee sun continues: he is total human trash. she stands and says: i will tell you the reason why your brother came to you- it’s cuz of money. he was duped by some woman so it’s for the sake of paying the debt of 78 uk. Soo goes over and slaps her. Jin sung goes over and grabs Hee sun and leads her out but stops within Young’s hearing distance. he says Young is Soo’s younger sister. no matter how much you like hyung -you cant stand to see hyung with a girl. come out. he takes her away.
Young: is what hee sun said the truth? until now you werent good to me cuz I was your sister, but cuz you needed money – that’s why you did it? answer me. Soo: no. she stands up and says: if you saw the will you already know. if I die my fortune is yours. it’s a lot more than the 78 uk you need. if you need money you can kill me now even. but like i said before – before I die you wont be able to take a cent from me. she cries saying that and leaves
*technically Hee sun also left out that the nice Oh Soo is dead. by Jin sung implying Hee Sun did this out of jealousy, it gives wiggle room for Young to believe it was all a lie what Hee sun told her. plus even Soo denied it so Young could believe she was lied to by Hee sun.
later outside hee sun cried and told Soo: I could have told Young you were the fake, but I didnt for one reason.cuz I like you. I saw how you looked at her – how comfortably you slept with Young -I am a girl too – I can sense that. you like her dont you. what did I do that was so wrong – asking Young for money what was so wrong about that. why – was it humiliating asking her for money. answer me. I couldnt do that? you only used her and didnt like her at all. if she knows you are her brother what’s wrong with her giving you the money -in your place I asked for it. what did I do that was so wrong. i have to ask for money for you to live. you will live. Soo hugs her to comfort her.
young went on that date only cuz soo wanted her to she thought.
during her date with myung ho, young senses he isnt paying attention to her. he was texting the whole time. soo later finds out it’s cuz myung ho already has some woman on the side.
on the car ride home after her date with myung ho, young says: while we are going like this – bam – the two of us get into a car accident? it’s a good idea. but you have to drive well seeing how you need money to the extent you would deceive your sister –it seems there is a clear reason you need to live. if things go awry, you cant go too (as in die with her). soo: if you drank alcohol just sleep quietly and don’t speak nonsense. young: I am saying this just in case – don’t feel guilty (like you committed a crime). as you know I wanted to die. just think you granted my wish and it will make you comfortable. what I enjoyed with you – had fun with –thought I was happy – everything I remember –that you did all that as a show to get money from me – as a human being I cant help but feel betrayed but….he tells her to be quiet. she continues with tears in her eyes: should I undo my seatbelt? that’s how if the car gets into even a little accident (my body) can shoot out really really far. while the nice oppa was taking home his drunk sister there was a car accident –cuz the sister was drunk she took off her seatbelt with her own hands and in that moment her alarmed brother… Soo suddenly pulls over. young: after that we should have crashed into the car in front of us. she takes off her seatbelt and says “do it over. it’s now.” soo: it was a misunderstanding. everything hee sun said was a lie. it’s a misunderstanding. she cant stand it anymore and cries more as she gets out of the car. soo goes after her. she says to let go. he says I could kill you now if I wanted to kill you –if I needed money and came to you. I had a lot of chances. at the subway station the moment the train was coming –the other day at the river. at the beach. and now here. you who cant see – you who is asking for me to kill you – if I made up my mind – anytime…he cries and touches her face saying she is making it so easy. young: tell me I can trust you. she sits on the ground crying and asking: that I can trust you. I cant trust anyone next to me please oppa at least you –that can I trust you. he gets down and cradles her in his arms. soo: you can trust me. you can trust me young.
soo carries her to her bed. he tells sec wang to leave. after young is asleep I will go to my room so leave. sec wang obeys. when he is alone with young, he holds her hand. when she calls out oppa he takes his hand away. young still has her eyes closed as she says: I had my first kiss today. soo: did you like it? young: it wasn’t as great as I expected. soo: but your first kiss is me. (in the video she kissed soo after their bath when they were kids) she asks for his hand. young: what you said a while ago – that I can trust you – that’s for real right? he nods yes. young: I am sleepy. he calls out her name and touches her face. his voice narrates: why do I want to live (so much) like this – when I don’t have a clear reason why I need to live. this kid who cant see – going to the extent to lie to her endlessly. why do I want (so much) to live like this? he remembers all their past happy moments looking at her face. his voice narrates as he leans in closer and closer to kiss her: life is no big deal. I said if you just live through it, it’s just life – everything I said – where those perhaps all lies. while living –without me knowing – just once – was I crazily expecting/anticipating this kind of moment -what am I doing right now? crazy guy. he pulls himself away and leaves her room.
*this is what I love so much about this drama – you actually feel like you are right there experiencing this – you don’t feel like a viewer – you feel like a participant somehow. cuz you get to sense everything that is going on so acutely.
Moo Chul told Jin Sung about the pill he gave Soo. so Jin Sung goes to meet Soo. He tells Soo to break into the safe in Young’s room cuz it’s better than the medicine Moo chul gave. Jin Sung reminds him of all the things Hee sun has done so that Soo could come this far – that she is involved in all this cuz she helped with the DNA switch, background research, all of it to help Soo get into this home and get close to young. you made her see you sleeping with Young and gave her a scar. Jin Sung cries and says how he took Soo’s side even when Soo took money from his father. when Soo was living in his home during high school and got into fights, it was Jin Sung’s mom who went to the station and begged and got him out. later she developed heart problems from all those scares but Jin Sung never resented Soo for that. “did you know that hyung? no matter how much I am on your side, I cant watch you kill a person. you went to the beach together and played – like yesterday held her and slept and got close to her but after that to kill her with a pill – does that make sense. you wont have to die hyung and poor Young wont have to die. Soo heard enough cuz he decides to rob the safe.
when Young and sec wang are gone to meet Myung ho’s family to set the wedding date, Soo backs out of going to go to the house and rob the safe, but he gets caught by sec wang when they come back earlier than Soo expected.E7 preview sec wang tells soo – I heard you need 78 uk- I can give you that money now Young says in the video: sec wang i know you planned it i am not alone – i have an oppa Soo asks the doctors to get another test (for young’s tumor) Young: are you going to leave? Young: if you are sorry soo finishes her sentence: should we go play? Moo chul tells Soo that sora is going now to meet myung ho cuz sora found out soo is pretending to be the son of PL group Soo gets a call that his sister is really sick now
There is this short story called Retrieved Reformation and for some reason I keep thinking the same thing will happen between Moo Chul and Soo. In the story there is a bank robber named Jimmy who gets out of prison and a detective that is determined to catch him in the act of robbing so that he can put Jimmy away again. Jimmy insisted he has turned over a new leaf and will never rob again, but the detective didn’t believe him. Until the day a little girl gets trapped in a brand new fancy vault by accident so the new life that Jimmy had built up hangs in the balance – if he wants to keep his new life with his fiancé he has to let the girl die or lose everything to break open that vault in front of everyone to save the girl. When the detective watches Jimmy make that sacrifice to give risk everything to save the girl, the detective finally believes Jimmy. So when Jimmy goes over to him to be arrested, the detective acts like he doesn’t know Jimmy and lets him go free. Moo Chul has been driven by his hatred for Soo, but once he realizes that Soo has been changed by love, I keep thinking when the moment comes to kill Soo, Moo Chul won’t be able to do it. I got that feeling when Moo Chul spit on his boss – the man who gave Moo Chul his position and power and someone who could easily give the order to kill Moo Chul. Moo Chul has this reckless attitude about life – it doesn’t mean much to him if he lives or dies so he just pursues the one thing that is keeping him going – his desire to make Soo pay for Hee Joo’s death. But I think his hatred for Soo could turn into compassion when he sees the lengths Soo will take to save the woman he loves.
