OH. EM. GEE.
I’m a sucker for spoilers, and I can’t seem to stay away. Ever. Though I’m still a good month behind the live broadcast, I’ve been checking the news portals every weekend just to read the headlines for Seo-young articles – I love how Korean headlines tell ya everything ya need to know. You don’t actually have to read the article. Though that doesn’t hurt, of course. But back to the whole spoilers issue. I saw all the headlines for Episode 24 (!!! I can’t believe I’m so behind! I’ve never been this behind before!!) and I knew I had to go for broke. ’Cause at this rate, I’m never gonna catch up. So. I won’t reveal anything, since most people actually care to wait for the revelations to happen on their own. But in light of the need to get up to speed, I’m REALLY going super summary mode. I tried the last four episodes, but the summaries kept getting longer, so I’m bucklin’ down for realsies. And by all accounts, not too much has actually happened the last several weeks. So. For the umpteenth time. A summary. Or perhaps I’ll call it an abstract, since that word makes me think “short” more than “summary” does. We’ll see…
Okay. I’m stoppin’ for reals with the chatter.
Episodes 15-26. Bring it on. (Well, Episodes 15-16 just for today.)
Papa Lee can’t manage to wiggle his way out of Woo-jae’s grasp and reluctantly starts work at Winners Group as a parking attendant.
Seo-young shows up at the law firm for her first day, and what a welcome it is: Yeon-hee and Sun-woo. We get a flashback: Sun-woo tells Seo-young that she’s gonna wait for Woo-jae. She believes Seo-young will get tossed over at some point, just like she did, so she’s gonna wait for Woo-jae to come back to her. Gah, lady, you just suck. And what a way to make Seo-young miserable, now that she has to work with Sun-woo every day.
Yeon-hee calls Seo-young out and asks her to pretend not to know her in the office. (Seo-young doesn’t want Yeon-hee — a connection to her super spy secret past — around, but it’s pretty awkward for Yeon-hee, too, especially since Seo-young has become so successful while Yeon-hee hasn’t.) Yeon-hee says she’ll try to find another job ASAP. Sun-woo sees the two of them talking together.
Papa Lee decides to just stay at this job until he can find another one. While on the job, he gets a glimpse of President Kang, who wants to meet Papa Lee (his son’s lifesaver). Woo-jae manages to prevent the meeting, but the two see each other from afar. Our first official meeting of the in-laws, eh?
Sun-woo goes to see Mi-kyung and asks if nothing went down at their home last night, and when Mi-kyung answers in the negative, she tells her that Seo-young is working at her law firm. Mi-kyung calls Woo-jae and relays the news, and Woo-jae in turn calls Sun-woo out for lunch. He’s awesomely curt with the annoying Sun-woo who insists that it’s pure coincidence that she and his wife came to be working for the same law firm. He tells her straight-up that she made a mistake, but she lies through her teeth, promising not to make things uncomfortable for his wifey. Gah, go away.
Sung-jae goes out on a “meeting” with his friends and keeps seeing someone who looks like the old Seo-young (before she got married, when she was tutoring him). How cute is it that he still holds her in esteem as his first love?
Seo-young gets mad at Woo-jae for meeting up with Sun-woo. Okay, girlfriend, being jealous is cute, but it’s not cool to keep brushing him off when he back-hugs you! Are you out of your mind?! Every woman on the planet is dying for a back-hug from Woo-jae!
Sung-jae comes home and excitedly asks Seo-young if she has a twin. Gah. The look on her face. He explains that he saw her doppelganger today, but the haunted look doesn’t go away.
Ho-jung tells Mi-kyung that she likes Sang-woo, and that she’s making a declaration of war. LOL. Mi-kyung is just speechless, and Ho-jung tells her, “Love cannot have any deception.” Right-o you are, dear, on that one. Mi-kyung says she’s gonna tell Sang-woo the truth, but Ho-jung says no, get approval from your parents first. “Until you get approval, I’m gonna do whatever it takes to win him. If you get approval, I’ll cleanly admit defeat and live by myself the rest of my life.” Ho-jung’s logic isn’t completely off-base, but still… and LOL: Ho-jung tells Mi-kyung that if she tells Sang-woo the truth first without getting her parents’ approval, she’ll tell President and Mama Kang about Sang-woo.
Seo-young goes to surprise Woo-jae at his office… and passes by Papa Lee in the parking lot…
Seo-young goes to surprise Woo-jae at his office, but he goes to her firm to surprise her. LOL. Is this like the Gift of the Magi or something? They eventually meet up and watch Turin’s Horse again. Awwww. Cute times. Woo-jae tells Seo-young that he’s so happy – she now gets mad at him and even feels jealousy. Until now, she’s never gotten angry or anything at him, and he’s happy she’s finally showing some emotion. He explains that their first movie date was when he really got “hooked” by her. He didn’t fall asleep that day – hehehee. He saw that she didn’t let go of herself, even in sleep, and he vowed that he would be the one to make her comfortable. Awww. And gah, this just hurts so much, knowing what’s comin’.
Sun-woo has dinner with Yeon-hee to mine info for ammo against Seo-young. I can’t stand this.
Mi-kyung finds herself in a dilemma thanks to Ho-jung, while Sang-woo tells Papa Lee that he’s serious about marrying Mi-kyung. I’m dying here – isn’t there aaanything to be happy about?
Woo-jae just continues to show aspects of his character that Papa Lee loves, and pinkblossom continues to die a slow death.
President Kang gets separate beds for him and his wife, which prompts a two-hour opera session for the incensed and heartbroken Mama Kang. LOLOL. Oh, Mama Kang, what would I ever do without you? Sung-jae runs home to take care of her and he storms into President Kang’s office, demanding that he apologize to Mama Kang. He tells his unrepentant father that he has no intention of entering Winners Group – which sends the devious(?) Secretary Yoon into a tizzy. This lady is starting to make me nervous.
Seo-young asks Yeon-hee not to share any personal info about her at work, and Yeon-hee readily agrees. But Yeon-hee remembers hearing about a mutual friend seeing Papa Lee at Jeju Island a few years back and asks Seo-young how Sang-woo is doing… Eek, things are getting scary, here… and Seo-young is starting to feel the pressure.
D-Day has arrived for Mi-kyung and Sang-woo, and Mi-kyng dresses up extra nice in anticipation of their special date that night. Gah, I’m so scared.
Sung-jae goes to an audition for new actors and sees the girl who reminded him of pre-marriage Seo-young. Okay, it was cute when he saw her from the back, but her staring at him via the mirror is just creepers.
Seo-young goes to the hospital on a case… and her client is Sang-woo’s patient. Gah! She calls Mi-kyung, whom she knows works at the hospital, thinking to meet up… and… Seo-young and Sang-woo run into each other. Oh. My. Gawsh.
The only thoughts running through my mind are “I’m dying,” and “Oh. My. Gosh.” Things are still in motion, so it’s an awkward time to weigh in on what’s goin’ down. Once we get to the uber juicy stuff, though, you won’t be able to stop me from blabbering on.
Thank you for all your patience – I know these recaps have been uber slow, and I can’t thank you all enough for continuing to love our Patch despite the lack of proper tending whitecarrot and I have been giving it. We’ll be clearin’ out the weeds and plantin’ some real good stuff before the year’s out, so please continue to visit us! 😀 Thanks again!!
