While Sera is preparing to move out of the house behind her mothers back, Ahn Do-young demands to meet with Ji-hyun. He is in front of the house! And he is outraged: how could she have not told him about their daughter!? He wants to see her again and does not take no for an answer; of course not. This is his daughter and he indeed has every right to meet with her.
He made it in time, but just in time ... we're at her funeral next. Jung-wan does the proper greetings but continues to be very sad, looking at Oh Kyung-soo (who seems tired and a little lost) with so much empathy. What a woman. I think I'm a little bit in love with her.
Fate wants it that Gyu-shik forgets (or "forgets"?) his cell-phone on the table. When he goes back into the funeral home to get it, he overhears Sun-mi and Jung-wan talking about Ji-hyung and her "boyfriend from college". Another secret is out! Though you ain't seen half of it yet, poor Gyu-shik. I keep hoping that you're a bad guy, somewhere behind that perfect exterior, but so far, you don't seem to be. Slowly, he begins to realize that his wife has been lying to him.
When she sees her "friend" our after the meal, Jung-wan takes heart and tells Sun-mi that she has something to discuss. At a coffee shop, she tells Sun-mi that she too likes Oh Kyung-soo. A lot. It took her a while to realize, but now she does. As expected, Sun-mi gets really angry, throwing all kinds of "how can you"s at her friend, kind of giving her an "either him or me" ultimatum. It's incredibly childish and very sad at the same time.
It's the day of the party and Oh goes to collect Ahn - who looks at the picture of him, Ji-hyun and their daughter dreamily. Ahn has quite the lurve-antennas cause he calls his friend and cousin out on his love-affair. Bingo!
There is not much point in me repeating again what we all know: this is a wonderful little gem because it tells a love-story, without much aplomb and drama. It is a drama without drama, at least for some of our couples, or at least no KDrama-drama. The drama is what life usually has to offer, money-issues, health-issues, mommy-issues, etc. But here it comes. These issues, they are dealt with. Quickly. Which means they do not FILL this drama. They are NOT what this drama is about. This drama is about people; people and their lives.
Oh Kyung-soo and Jung-wan deserve every ounce of happiness coming their way because they are doing everything right. They are incredibly honest with each other: Not a single lie has come between them. He likes her, tells her. She resists, cause she's is overwhelmed. He keeps telling her and meeting her. She sees his true, vulnerable self, she immediately opens up to him because she is no longer daunted by this über-perfect prince. She sees that indeed, they can be good for each other. These two have already become so incredibly close, I feel like crying happy tears. And Jung-wan ... Jung-wan! YES! She is no longer self-less. She wants something and she is going to get it. For herself. Now we just need the all-too arrogant ex-husband to back down.
Sun-mi on the other hand is no longer a threat. This was the last hissy-fit that we have seen, I believe (and hope). She already knows she has lost for good. That's why she was so defeated outside the restaurant. It was very stupid of her to behave that way, but I can understand the disappointment she was feeling. The lie she kept telling herself (marriage will happen) seems to have been convincing enough to truly make herself believe in it. I hope we will see some character growth from her in the remaining episodes, but I am confident that she will find her way back to the light.
Ji-hyun on the other hand ... hm. All the lies come tumbling down, but what will be left afterwards? I don't like her predicament (actually, too much drama for my taste!), but I am curious to see where this strand of the story will take us.
