Another episode that doesn't lose time with the side-characters. Nice! The formula, so far, has been this: they say goodbye and make it sound like they mean it. But then, something happens to throw them together again. Sometimes, she is more on top of things and in control, sometimes, it's him. In this episode, it's him. I am SO GLAD Joo Sang-wook took this role.
Poor Ae-ra is in the interrogation room. She thinks she went home straight after dinner, but ... oupsie. She begins to remember ... slowly. The security guys have proof of her entering the data room, but she informs them that she has lost her badge. And she remembers more ... she went into the parking garage. Uh-oh .. But the security guard has another theory, one that involves her entering the company all mission impossible style in sexy leather. Get a life, man.
개새끼) I vote YES!
There's not a lot of the rest! Still, almost no annoying Second Lead. No Gook-family boringness. Some Na-family semi-boringness: Jung-woo is taking a looooooong leak on the toilet when Ae'ra's father corners him. In a new suit. He is growing on me a tiny little bit, because he is quite funny. Anyway, he finds out that Na Soo-Cheol (Ae-ra's brother) received money from Jung-woo - but not because Jung-woo called him (that's the version Ae-ra believes) but because he went there himself. Soo-cheol is kicked out of the house.
The scene with the dream-house was very cruel. It was well prepared by him to establish his superiority over her first as an incredibly successful and rich businessman and then, to crush all her hopes of ever being with him again.
So he thinks she still has feelings for him? Or rather ... that she still has enough greed in her to come after him. But which of the two is it? Yes, her reasons for marrying him the first time were (all?) greed related. But she clearly is not devoid of feelings for him - feelings maybe related to his new self, but definitely feelings that are also based on something deeper and more honest than he gives her credit for.
As for him ... he is absolutely obsessed with this woman. He even built their dream-house?! Oh boy. His hurt makes him vengeful, and the thought of showing her what she lost is indeed the great motivator in his life. He absolutely needs her near him to be able to make her suffer - and thus, he has already lost this game, as Ae-ra's friend pointed out. At the moment, he is on top of things and seems to have full control over his feelings ... sometimes. But we're already seeing cracks in his armor. When he is around her or when he thinks of her, his old, nerdy self shows itself. It is incredibly cute and very vulnerable. Of course, he will fall for her again, hard, and I pray she doesn't hurt him again. I want those two to be happy!
