Gyu-shik is losing it: he demands to know, screaming, why the three of them are together at this late hour (certainly a good question), but before things can escalate further, Ji-hyun gets him to come home with her. At home, she finally tells her husband the truth (cause she really doesn’t have a choice anymore!). She is incredibly sorry (we’ve heard that before), she says she was “too happy with him”, all she ever wanted was to make him happy (out of guilt, yeah). He doesn’t want to hear any of this, even when she begs him to understand that she was in pain, too. He finds her utterly disgusting – but divorce is not an option. Shame, you know. Better be in a living hell than lose face. It's Goddess of Marriage all over!
Liar, liar, pants on fire, and a stupid one on top of that! Lies don't get you far in the Can We Love universe, we know that, and this is so stupid it will not go on for long, that I'm certain of. To be honest, I think it's good that Jung-wan has to suffer a bit due to her own stupidity. I was wondering before where her insecurity went, and now that it's back, I think it's time she truly overcame it, once and for all. She knows Kyung-soo well enough by now to know what she has to say to make him waver, but she also shows by doing that what her biggest problem is: She doesn't believe in herself. She lives her life for others, constantly making sacrifices. She calls herself an egoist, but she is about the furthest from that as humanly possible. However, until she can accept good things that are there just for her, she doesn't deserve them. At this moment, she doesn't deserve to be with Oh Kyung-soo. He has only given her love, the truest, deepest, and most devoted kind and if she is unable to see what kind of man she is, tough luck, you've had your chance and you've missed it. That she believes the bullshit that Sun-mi is sprouting ("I really want to marry Director Oh" - "I am convinced I can entice him") is just a sign of that insecurity that makes her life so difficult. That she thinks not telling him anything is the right thing to do, that she believes that he will just accept her weird reasoning and break-up with her over simply nothing, just proves my point. Time for some character growth here, I think!
There's not much to say about Sun-mi's behavior that hasn't been said already. It's the lowest of the low and she truly deserves to be deserted by anyone she has ever cared about. SHE is the egoist and she seems to have become so desperate in the course of her life that she goes batshit insane when it comes to this man she is attracted to. Seriously. Her plan? That's about the most stupid thing I've ever heard! You break up with him, my friend who he loves like he has never loved before, and after that, there will be room for me???! No, I don't think so. He would never, ever marry her just because she was pregnant with his baby - which she isn't, of course. He would definitely be there and help her with all his might, but he is the most upright, most honest person I've ever "encountered". He would not be untrue to his feelings. I am also pretty sure that Puppy will put a spoke into her unholy wheel. Puppy, you have my full support. Take the bitch down!
As for the rest ... yes, Gyu-shik is becoming abusive, and that's not a big surprise, seeing the kind of mother he has. Still, I am not entirely put-off by him, because I also understand part of his rage. Imagine being married to somebody for so long, then finding out they have lied to you every single day? Only a saint wouldn't react with violence. The way he treats his daughter, well ... that was a very, very bad call, but he seems to love her, still. Seeing your teenage daughter pregnant, knowing that it will most likely destroy her life must be damn difficult - I don't know what I would do in a situation like that. As for Ji-hyun, this episode turned her into the most pitiful creature on earth and I hope for her that she runs away, far, and never comes back. Alone. Ahn is occupied with his own demons. Good luck to the two of you!
