Boksu and Mijin are there to cute-bomb Mijin's mother's Happiness Seminar. It totally works, of course, just not on the mother. Boksu introduces himself to everyone as future son-in-law. Way to establish facts! After the seminar, the ladies are delighted to meet their Coach's daughter and future husband (who they consider "so handsome"). The mother walks away, not even looking at them, so the BoMi couple follows like cute little doggies. Mijin says she wants to eat - and Boksu also told her it's impolite towards the parents not to eat.
Boksu and Mijin get quite busy preparing for the wedding. Since she will be his in "fifteen days" (uhm ... were they not talking about a month before?), he tenderly slaps her a$$. Hahaha, show. Seriously. She doesn't like it ... but he does it a second time!!! "You are mine", he shouts and runs after her.
There are three bad types of men to marry, her mother knows: first, the one with nothing, second, the liar, and third, the good son. That would be Boksu, so give him up! In-woo's (now living at home, see below) comedic presence saves the scene. He is rapidly growing on me.
Boksu - in jeans! O___o - meets the Doctor Son at a bar. They talk about his bride - and about Doctor Son's sad life (Oh man, Kim ji-hoon is HAWT)
The Bad MIL and her husband come to visit Boksu's family. Of course, Bad MIL must be a dickette to Boksu's mother, establishing who is "better" in the kitchen. Saaaaaaad. She also gives poor Boksu Omma an inferiority complex by pointing out how shabby everything looks. That hits a nerve, of course - the mother thinks Mijin will look down on her. She also knows from the noisy neighbor that Mijin and her mother came to check out the house and the neighborhood.
In-woo moves back home: his father has pleaded with him, because their mother is having a hard time with Mijin's upcoming wedding. His mother goes berserk over seeing him and quasi tries to kill him. It occurs to me that the women in this family have severe anger management issues! He picks her up, throws her onto her bed, and tells her he loves her (in English) about one hundred times. He cracks me up.
Giha finally does his photoshoot. So he hasn't been fired? After the dinner with everybody, Giha and Sad Wife walk together and she asks why he missed the first shoot. He tells her about his very sick sister. Afterwards, there's staring - long, meaningful (?) and thoughtful staring at him.
It took me about 10 episodes to get really warm with this show, but now that I am, I am beginning to fall in love! Most of the characters feel so real! Boksu's mother (I said that before) is one of my favorites, but his father has also become much more likable. I am looking forward to the "meeting of the families" part, which should be in the next episode ... seeing them clash will be epic!
