It's waaaaaaaar beween our OTP! Or ... a IStillLoveYouButCannotSay kinda War? Anyway, they part in the park (huuuuge satisfied smile on his face) and Na Ae-ra goes a cries in front of a poster of his. He could have said sorry, at least, and thank you, she sobs, and both remember their last words. He appealed to their marriage vow, didn't they promise to be there for each other, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health (etc., you get it)? But she interrupted him to say: No. The terms "husband and wife" applied only when he fed her - not when she was the one putting food on the table. That's cruel, girl. Ah, you silly people ... the satisfied smile doesn't last long on his face, either.
Ae-ra, spellbound by the smile, thinks he is wavering already, ah, the fantasies (this time, chaebol rescuing his true love from a bitter faith) ... I know what kind of fantasies I would have about him. And if this weren't KDrama, she would have them too! Because she is indeed fantasizing about getting very, very close to him ... her friend thinks he is pitiful though because he will fall for her again. Huh. Well. I think he has never quite fallen out of love, in fact. That already makes him pitiful.
Elsewhere, this happens:
It hurts me a bit having to call Mr. Wonder Tummy "the Rest". Mr. Wonder Tummy is Seo Kang-Joon who may have the sweetest baby face, but ... *gulp*. He was born 1993. Just for your information.
His sister has almost no role to play in this episode and I won't lie, I am so thankful. Don't like her character at all. Don't like her face, don't like her voice. I hope, hope, hope that this drama will make her at least marginally interesting.
Also some family bits ... not relevant.
I liked this episode a lot. Frankly, I had expected more mean-things from both of them, and I wouldn't have minded them, à la War of the Roses, the 1989 movie, without the tragic ending. We are getting to see a lot of both their vulnerable sides instead, which also works. I guess the set-up to make him fall back in love with her restricts her actions, whereas he is completely and utterly ready to fall back in love with her, but keeps holding back with all his might. Quite clearly, they will keep hurting each other until they come clear about their feelings - and talk things out. Which they won't. Cause ... KDrama.
On the side, we have the story about Jung-woo's former business partner who quit (too early), wants back in, and is most likely behind the attacks on the company. It's not clear yet how that storyline will play out and how important it will be. At the moment, it will be used to keep the OTP together and maybe, later, to endanger Jung-woo's position.
