***Sourpuss gets home after the shout-out and shake-up with Tae-wook and gets the next scolding by her sister. No break for the cheating. Her father and she waited at the restaurant, but neither Tae-wook nor Ji-hye ever showed up. Her sister demands an explanation, but Ji-hye just says it was because she did something wrong. And then, Ji-hye bursts into tears and tells them she told Tae-wook she can't get married. And she goes to sob in her room.
It's a veritable Sobfest. And I do feel sorry for her. Yes, I genuinely do: She must feel absolutely terrible.
Tae-wook meets his (maybe) future father-in-law at a traditional restaurant. And I do take issue that it took 13 minutes until Kim Ji-hoon's first appearance in this episode. Not okay, show! Not okay at all!! He does a very formal greeting and is yummy while doing it. I know what lafer and laos7 will say again ... he isn't sincere ladiladila ... he is a cunning and mean person ladiladila ... but I don't think so! I think he genuinely is a "good son", very polite to the Elders. He hears from Ji-hye's father that Sourpuss said she can't get married. Tae-wook says that he is sorry ... he is lacking a lot. Father-in-law won't have it, but Tae-wook says his personality is very different from Ji-hye's; and that she is having a difficult time because of it. He apologizes for it (as he always does). But father-in-law says a promise is a promise. They need to get married, or course. And Tae-wook asks for his father-in-law's help to convince Ji-hye. Well, okay, that is a little low. He knows exactly that she cannot say no to her father.
|Hmmmm .... you think that's funny?! |
Wait ... is this a flashback?! Tae-wook and Ji-hye are walking together, along a lake. Wow! They are actually talking to each other like normal people! And he is smiling. When he takes her hand ... she let's him. He has always been a tenacious guy - that is why he never misses his target, he tells her. She? The most difficult of them all. He just considers it his fate: a bastard, born with everything, a hateful man - only right he has to suffer a little when it comes to getting his woman. Well, Tae-wook: you seriously get the best lines in this show. Please continue your good work.
What is he going to do about them, she asks (not a flashback then). He wants to know why she is bringing it up again. Because she has no confidence ... that she will love him forever, be a good mother, a good daughter-in-law, etc. But he says that she hasn't tried yet, so how does she know? Well, people don't change easily, is her reply, and she knows herself really well. She can only read and write well. And she even had an affair. Why is she bringing it up again and again?! To torture him? he asks, or because she has some conscience left? Both, is her reply. And she informs him that she needs to be alone 5 hours a day without interruption from anyone. The perfect wife for a busy prosecutor, he says, as they walk into the sunset.
While shopping for a gift for Tae-wook, she runs into the Big Snore. He is getting a gift instead of his Architect friend. And the muuuuuusic plays. Okay, I actually GET it, even without the music, thankyouverymuch. Stop it already.
But forget about the Snore, because ...
... they get married.
OMG ... they really get married!
- Wow, the storyline with the Anchorman and Doormat Wife is getting harder and harder to watch. It is too brutal. Will she be able to change her life and move on? At this moment, I doubt it. He is her one and only reason to live, it seems. Sure, she has her son ... but her son certainly does not come first. She was even ready to abandon him to follow her cheating scumbag of a husband. Of course, I understand: starting a new life without the person you have spent an eternity with is daunting, may seem impossible. But I do hope that someone will be able to show her that there is more to life than clinging to a love that is no longer. And btw: the attempts at comedy when she is with the Career Woman? Not working.
- And I also hope that Cheating Anchorman is in for a bad surprise when Barbie grows tired of him. He is the most despicable character right now. And that means something, cause there are so many despicable characters!!
- New Director Woman, formerly known as Abused Wife continues to show her claws. Well. She is not a very nice person either, as we find out.
- Dragon Mother doesn't cope well with the new situation. What an incredibly awful biatch this woman is! Gross Brother also doesn't cope with the new Power Woman well. Haha, he even tells her he wants her to shrink down to the little size she had before again. Do you maybe refer to the size of something else, you terrible person?!
Hm. Hmmmmmmmm .... I am surprised. I did NOT expect this marriage to happen so soon. In fact, I wasn't expecting it to happen at all. Let me say that this show still intrigues me because it is quite unpredictable. What is in store for Ji-hye and Tae-wook now? I have absolutely no idea. I am pretty certain that she will experience hell from the Dragon Mother, but how will she take it? What will Tae-wook's part in this be? Is there happiness where they are headed? Is it really just the beginning of a long journey for them? Or has the journey ended before it even started? I seriously have no clue. One clue we got, though ... her old life is over. All her friends (all arriving too late) are not allowed to attend the wedding. Because of being late and because they are not dressed appropriately.
Whatever will lay ahead for the two, I am so glad to read about how well they get on together in real life. And thank you, Kim Ji-hoon, for tweeting these pictures. I really am far too involved emotionally. Craaaaazy. Have fun without me for a while, chingus, and see you after my holidays!
