***But let's get cracking. At the beginning of episode 7, we backtrack a little. Uri lady with the "headache" arrives at her father's orchard in a taxi. Everybody is very happy to see her. I'm not. She is such a sourpuss. Every time somebody mentions her impending marriage or her incredibly handsome financé, she just makes a face as if she'd bitten into a very sour peach.
Her father is a smart cookie though (and he reminds me of our neighbor upstairs, but that's not really interesting for the lot of you, right?), and he asks her sister, who calls him, if anything is wrong with her and Tae-wook. Cause why is she coming to see him alone?. It seems things were different before from what he is saying? Her not getting enough of him? I believe it when I see it, cold fish.
The protagonists of my favorite brand of recaps, Kim Ji-hoon The Wonderful, has his first scene next. Thank you! And I laugh. He is in a restaurant with his colleagues. And they did such a great job, really ... they only got elderly and definitely not good looking people to play his colleagues.
He goes on the say how he likes Lady Chatterley a lot. Huh. Well. Why not. Another cheater story among the very rich (like Anna Karenina). Again, the rich husband is cuckold by the much younger, sexually frustrated wife. Her father says that he can understand the heroine of this book: of course she would want a different lover after her husband becomes impotent in the war.
Tae-wook is getting out of a taxi. "I drank a bit", he tells the security guard who always greets him, the one with the Cruella de Vil hair.
He walks to another house on the compound. And sighs. He notices that the windows are open and goes in.
She is walking in the orchard, flashbacking to the Big Boring Snore, while that stupid music plays. The phone rings and she picks up. Tae-wook asks her what she is doing. And she ... asks who it is. Seriously, I haven't been dating him for a year like you, but I immediately recognize his voice!!
And she, she manages barely, tears flowing down her face. "Thank you", he says ... but there is absolutely no joy in his or her face. Shame on you, woman. Shame on you. I hope you feel at least a little bit guilty. Cause they crying fit after? Looks like self-pity to me! How on earth will they redeem her in my eyes?
The Big Snore gets to the orchard. It's night. After some stuff with the Abused Wife, he walks through the orchard and it's day. I think he has an issue with his mouth. Does he have problems closing it? And of course ... she comes, too. She doesn't notice him until she's almost in front of him. I'm glad they don't jump each other this time. He tells her he came to tell her something.
And we're back at where we were at the end of episode 6. A beautiful car and a beautiful man arrive and are happily greeted by her father. "Unfortunately", the Sourpuss isn't in.
This is him, when he sees her:
This is her, when she sees him. Spot the difference:
In the care, she mopes. As usual. He asks her what's going on. Are you in denial, Tae-wook or do you need to be whacked over the head to wake up? He jokes around and is nice, but she just cries. She lies it is because she's sad her father is lonely. When he wants to take her hand to comfort her, she pulls it away. Again.
- Anchorman is lost without his wife at home, but continues to be an Über-dick whenver he has the chance. He is currently the most hateful, but only because we don't see much of Tae-wook's brother.
- Career Woman messes up big time, first by totalling her car, then by causing some son-related nut-kicking at a business meeting at a karaoke bar, which loses her company a huge deal. When she is transferred to the province as punishment, she breaks down, to be consoled by her husband again.
- Poor Stupid Woman wakes up at the hospital and cries. Later, she calls Career Woman, her sister-in-law. Both annoy me to no end. But it seems they will come up with a plan together.
- Abused Wife has been appointed President of the company by her scary father-in-law. Who still thinks his son will fail as a politician and rot in a prison. Hm. He says she has endured all the hardship well for seven years and now, she is a real member of the family. She is to keep it a secret for a while. And ... there is one more thing: produce (another) baby! A son. His first son ran away to America instead of agreeing to be the heir - he and the grand kids there have been disowned. Oh well ... seduce to gross husband a little, no problem!
I want Tae-wook to know and at the same time, I don't want him to know, because this knowledge will hurt so much ... But then, the truth is better than this woman full of lies, right? Ah, I continue to despise her and the Big Snore and whenever that loud, romantic music starts, I start cursing at my screen. I hope I will not start throwing things, because I really like my screen.
