Not so faaaaaast, drama!!! Slooooow down, you have 30 more episodes!!! All of a sudden, all our precious secrets are revealed or about to be revealed as all our characters re-connect. Thankfully, there's a few more secrets established right away. Can't have none.
JoAnne: If we solve the central mysteries now (well they were never mysteries to US, of course, just to the characters) what does that mean for the future? Perhaps they develop some sort of Hanbok nuclear fission. No! I know! Hanbok Therapy! They develop a wardrobe of Hanbok that address myriad emotional complaints.
Min-jung starts bitching at Bori for entering her room when she sees what she has in her hands: the picture. Did she use this picture to win the competition and get financial support from Bi Sool Chae?, Bori demands to know. It's the one she used to draw and the one she taught Min-jung to draw, isn't it! So Min-jung plagiarized her picture! Min-jung denies everything (what else), but outside, Bong2 hears part of the conversation - and enters the room. You fool! You should have just listened, she was about to confess something!! Well, at least he sees that Min-jung is holding the picture and pieces a few things together. Maybe. He goes to his studio and calls Jangheung Elementary school. Good. Good! Though ... you will not resolve the biggest secret of them all so soon, will you not, drama?! He will probably die! Or fall into a coma!
JoAnne: His wife will stab him to death with tiny needles as he sleeps.
JoAnne: I chuckled at the choreography.
JoAnne: And Bori doesn't know he's the son of the company that sponsored the contest either, does she? She has NO idea he's rich?
kakashi: No, and he so isn't rich, haha. He is completely broke and needs to find 5000 Dollars for car repairs and gangster payment.
JoAnne: So if he can't get loans and his dad takes his paycheck, what has he been giving his sister?
kakashi: A few episodes ago, he said he is giving her everything and I thought that's his paycheck?
JoAnne: Bori! You owe this girl NOTHING.
JoAnne: Gotta be a brain cell or two left in there (but no more dye sniffing for you!!).
JoAnne: I have been wondering why no one simply looks at photos but perhaps that's just not the Hanbok Way. Figures it would be the little bitch who finally does something 20th-century.
JoAnne: I spent a lot of time wondering if that jacket was actually his. Based on past history, I'm guessing yes. Do you love him enough to forgive him his fashion choices, Kakashi? (absolutely fucking YES) I mean, there are times when I think he and Lee MinHo might share a closet (ah, maybe they come as a multipack? Sign me up! Though I will spend most of my time with KJH).
JoAnne: I love jealous Kim Ji Hoon, in every single drama ever. He's hilariously good at being jealous.
kakashi: Hm. Maybe I don't want to marry him after all. I need my freedom.
JoAnne: Sweetest jerk-like move ever. When they both love each other I'm going to lie on the floor and flail around like .... I don't know, something flail-y....and make actual squealing noises.
kakashi: I simply LOVED this scene. So CUTE. Why is he so cute??!
JoAnne: I'm just so DONE with this evil troll.
Just walking home .. Jae-hwa. Just arriving there ... Bad Dad. In a taxi. Jae-hwa tries to run away, but it's futile. Of course, Jae-hwa gets hit and his father demands to have his car back tomorrow. Yikers. That's when the Hanbokers arrive, and ask where Do Bori lives. They say something disappeared and it's possible she stole it, but Jae-hwa takes her side right away, saying she isn't the kind of person to take other people's things. They describe the item to them in detail, which is good, because ...
... Jae-hwa recognizes it right away when he sees it in his brother's room a few minutes later. (Oh thank God they don't drag something else out.) Ha, Halmoni actually has Bori's phone number! They summon her. Bori admits that she went to the sewing room to get some cloth, as ordered. Min-jung accuses her of stealing. Things don't look good and then, Min-jung demands to search her house. Ah, smart witch. But look who's here! It's the Sneaker-wearing Prosecutor!
JoAnne: Ok but it wouldn't be AT her house since she didn't take it, and how smart is the witch who wants to take EVERYONE to the place where her mother lives? Although I would love to see her face when she catches sight of Bi Dan.
JoAnne: I am buying cake tonight to celebrate this moment.
Jae-hwa rushes out after Bori (can you be any more obvious?), but since she's hiding, he thinks she has already left. From her hiding place, she hears how he babbles about saving her and that he should just have gone to sleep instead. He leaves, she steps forward and wonders aloud whether he really came all the way there for her? Why would he do that? Diiiiiiimwiiiiiiit!
JoAnne: She'll tell herself it's because he's a prosecutor and thus, interested in justice. Yes, I just realized I forgot to watch the rest of this episode. Oh well. You will all get my absolute true, unvarnished, immediate responses! Not that you don't already, but this time it's my FIRST absolute true, unvarnished, immediate response. Normally, you get my SECOND true, unvarnished, immediate response because reading the recap (or writing it) is my second time going through the episode.
JoAnne: Yeah, my fondness for that chubby cheeked boy with the terrible blond side-of-head rat-tail only goes so far.
JoAnne: Oh no and he's going to think Big Kang is Bi Dan's dad, and then he's going to find out about Big Kang and his aunt and SHE's going to think Big Kang is Bi Dan's dad... so angst! much melo!
JoAnne: *pats self on back* who cares if it was obvious what would happen?
But out of the house steps ... GooDIL. Aka Aunt. Ohhhhhh .... so touching ... He can't believe his eyes. She runs to him and hugs him and the tears are flowing freely.
JoAnne: I'm laughing because I have been sitting here going OMG show slow DOWN you go so FAST and then I realize...we've been watching this for 20 hours now. No. It's not fast. We've become part of the borg.
JOANNE: YES I'M YELLING OMG I'M SO HAPPY
Dumb Wife has a few tricks up her sleeve - and she manages to make Veggie Ahjumma stay as a maid. Veggie Ahjumma asks for a cash advance: one whole year! They sign a contract - and find out that they're childhood friends. Buahaha, oh my goodness, drama! Seriously!!! Dumb Wife was the dumb one, of course, whereas Veggie Ahjumma did really well in school and in life - until she became pregnant and ran away.
JoAnne: Tooooooooooootally did not expect this. Love it. Love it a lot.
Bi-dan and Big Kang are SO CUTE. She wants to go with him while he is looking for a job. Since he is her dad and all. She found something ... it's a poster! And we all know what it says, right? Pizza baker wanted at Bongdarak Pizza!
JoAnne: I will take them both. Instant family. Hot younger husband, cute 'change of life' baby... my daughter won't mind. She always wanted brothers and sisters. Done.
JoAnne: Please let them just get over it right away and get right back together I love this couple. Please.
JoAnne: Ok now I have to watch the rest of the episode. *sob*
JoAnne: There are so many couples to ship in this drama. Anyone who wants anyone but Min Jung, step right up. Get your happy here. If you want Min Jung, though, sorry. She's a bitch and I have plans for her, so you are out of luck.
JoAnne: Definitely have to watch the rest of this episode. AppaNotOppa, go for blood. We are all behind you. This is one girl we are GLAD you won't get.
JoAnne: Jae Hee... your one chance here is if you play it like the duped lover. If you actually meld with her evil... I will not forgive you.
Alright, deep breath! Where do we stand? Jae-hwa has found his aunt (*still touched*). Big Kang and Jung-ran have met again (but she needs to find out that Bi-dan is not his kid). Ga-eul and Little Kang have met again. AppaNotOppa and Min-jung have met again. Veggie Ahjumma and Dumb Wife know each other from waaaaaay back (i.e. Veggie Ahjumma knows a few "dirty" secrets about Dumb Wife). Min-jung and Jae-hee have bonded and will soon be an evil couple. BaDIL and Bong2 are becoming suspicious of Min-jung (is it the end of her Bi Sool-chae times already? Yes? Maybe? It feels so good!)
JoAnne: I like this part of the drama. A lot.
JoAnne: Yes, I'm not sure how they resolve the Bi Dan issue without letting anything bad happen to the child, because I can't wish for that. How did this suddenly become a really addicting drama? How?
