Episode 49 Basics
Papa Lee’s condition suddenly worsens, sending Seo-young into tears overdrive.
Papa Lee slips into a coma, and the family can do nothing but wait. Seo-young numbly sits on Papa Lee’s empty bed in the regular ward (he got moved to the ICU), full of regrets for not having even thought of telling Papa Lee to get a complete check-up after the accident. Sang-woo tries to reassure her but Seo-young replies, “If only I hadn’t married Woo-jae-sshi… If only I hadn’t met him… ” Alas, Woo-jae only overhears this latter part of the conversation, having missed Seo-young saying a series of “if only’s.” *covers eyes* Seo-young, unaware that Woo-jae overheard, continues, “I made Woo-jae-sshi prepare Father’s memorial table. If Father passes away, it is basically that I killed him. He rescued Woo-jae-sshi because it was Woo-jae-sshi, and he ran away because it was Woo-jae-sshi.” Gah. Woo-jae turns away, deeply hurt. Of course, as per Kdramaland dictates, Woo-jae doesn’t hear the rest of the conversation. Sang-woo asks whether Seo-young is blaming Woo-jae, and she quickly says she isn’t.
Seo-young goes to see President and Mama Kang, who are, obviously, surprised to see her so early in the morning. She explains her reasons for having lied to them about her father all those years ago, and she sincerely apologizes and asks for forgiveness. The Kang’s are taken aback by her sudden apology and explanation, and President Kang asks why she is telling them all of this – is she asking for them to accept her as a daughter-in-law again? Seo-young says that isn’t the reason; she just wanted to apologize before it was too late – she felt that if she didn’t apologize now, she would forever regret it.
Mama Choi comes to visit Papa Lee at the hospital (Papa Choi unable to have joined her because he had a sudden audition lol), and she sees Ho-jung, Sang-woo, and Seo-young together inside Papa Lee’s old room. Ho-jung sees her mom peering through the window and quickly runs outside to talk to her. Mama Choi is obviously confused, having recognized Seo-young as Mama Kang’s daughter-in-law, and Ho-jung is forced to confess that Seo-young is Sang-woo’s sister. She defends Seo-young to Mama Choi, who realizes Seo-young is that horrible girl who lied and got married. When Mama Choi, after hearing Ho-jung’s explanations, remarks that Papa Lee must have lived quite a life for his own daughter to treat him as a dead person, Ho-jung quickly jumps to Papa Lee’s defense. Hahaa so cute.
The Kang’s and Choi’s have dinner together, and Mama Choi tells the Kang’s about Papa Lee. Though Ho-jung asked her mom not to say anything, Mama Choi felt the Kang’s should at least know who had saved their son and what had happened as a result. Rocked to the core by the news, President and Mama Kang call Woo-jae and Seo-young home. They ask how long Woo-jae and Seo-young thought they could keep all this a secret, and President Kang tells Seo-young to come back home immediately. He explains that the reason he kept using her as a lawyer and paying her a lot was because he wanted to give her an ‘allowance’ (the term is ‘yong-don’ and is spending money freely given). Woo-jae, though, makes clear that he and Seo-young are over, and sends her home.
Time passes, and Woo-jae sees Seo-young at the hospital one day, listening to recorded messages of Papa Lee’s voice and talking back to them. Waaaaail. Heartbroken, he gets plastered that night and goes to Seo-young’s apartment. When she finds him in front of her door, he realizes where he is and apologizes before leaving. In the lobby, Seo-young catches up to him and demands to know why he’s adding on to her list of worries when he knows how hard things are for her. Woo-jae says that he is scared Papa Lee might pass away. “If Father passes away, you probably will never be able to see me again. Because you had to throw away Father in order to choose me.” He explains that he can’t bear to see her because he’s so scared of seeing her hate him and blame him (if something happens to Papa Lee). [[I’m running out of time, gotta run – the full conversation will be up in the recap.]] Woo-jae leaves, and Seo-young goes up to her place, then turns around and races after him. She finally tells him all that she had been keeping inside, explaining that she had not known how to express herself because she had grown so accustomed to keeping it all in. “I loved you. I did it because I loved you. I still feel the same right now: I love you, and I need you, and I wish that you would stay by my side.” Baaaaaaawwwllll. Gah, I can’t have puffy eyes – I need to go out!! They race towards each other, and Woo-jae pulls Seo-young in for a kiss…
