JoAnne: And MinJung will ruin it somehow.
Min-jung comes face to face with her daughter for the first time after giving birth - her mommy-sense tingles. Could it be? But there is AppaNotOppa, looking mean-thoughtful-creepy. Why is he there? Do we know? Whatever the case, he seems to know Bori (where from? Too many questions?) and offers to give her a ride, since there are no taxis. She accepts. When they're at GooDIL's shop, he admits he knows that Min-jung and Bori are siblings - and he particularly expresses his fondness for little Bi-dan.
JoAnne: He's met Veggie Ahjumma, he's seen pictures, he's been creepin'... I'm sorry, I pretty much support him in his wish to make Min Jung pay... but I'm betting that once he realizes Bi Dan is his, he will return from The Dark Side.
JoAnne: This woman creates conflict in my heart. Yeah, sure, there are brief seconds when I feel bad for Min Jung, too, but they pass pretty quickly. And BaDIL the same... well, she's sort of between Min Jung and Veggie Ahjumma, with Veggie getting the most sympathy from me overall. I think she's ignorant and shrill and selfish about anyone but Min Jung, but at the same time... somehow I feel like it's her desperation that leads her to that behavior, and then I think well, same for Min Jung and sort of for BaDIL but I don't accept the excuse THERE... and then I think you know, what's so desperate? They all had food, a home, clothes. They weren't destitute, they weren't homeless. So fuck 'em all for being twisted. YEAH!
JoAnne: I'm not. Bi Dan doesn't need that ish.
kakashi: Ah, not the forgiveness. The kneeling part. Looking forward to that. I want to see GROVELING.
Bori is doing some washing in the court yard, thinking about spelling and thinking about Scraps, who is going on blind dates even though he promised to teach her. She rages to herself when she suddenly sees ... Jae-hwa! He is sitting right next to her. WTF?! Hahaha. She believes it's a hallucination, but no! She slaps the hallucination and confirms it's the real Jae-hwa, who has grown wings, maybe, and just flew in?
JoAnne: Very funny this. But if he was there, she was talking out loud - so he should know what she's upset about and why isn't he dealing with that?
kakashi: He seems to not hear the important stuff. Whatever.
JoAnne: Oh, I do. I think a man could be more obvious. I think a man could stop speaking in riddles to the half-wit because he thinks it's funny to have her riled up. I do. Yes, I definitely do. Of course, then it wouldn't be funny. So there's that.
JoAnne: How does she know it's a camera? Why hasn't she told him there's a camera?
kakashi: She most certainly doesn't know she just put her chewing gum onto a camera!! I'm sure she just looked for a place to put it ... and there was this hole ......
JoAnne: She's a royal bitch, this one. They're going to be sorry they let her in the house. I don't think you'll end up liking her.
kakashi: I think you're right
So ... Bori is back at Bi Sool Chae? I thought they told her not to come back because of her illegal child? Whatever. Ah, I see, so it was just BaDIL that didn't want her there anymore. Matron has already forgiven her, gracefully and tells her to make kids' clothes. Among Bori's possession: that hanbok GooDIL made back in the day, which she gave to Min-jung. GooDIL makes big, surprised eyes at that.
JoAnne: Totally forgot she made it for a second, I did. Now I wonder is she going to think Bori is MinJung and MinJung is Bori.
kakashi: Oh gawd, please NO.
Hahaha, Jae-hwa's face when he sees who cooked all that delicious food? Priceless. Eeek, this looks really serious ... Jae-hwa want to refuse the food, but not while his father is alive! He drags him back to the table by his ears. If he isn't nice to her, he says, he will register the marriage right the next morning. Yeah. I'm suuuuure parents can't just register their adult kid's marriage.
JoAnne: Every time he makes that threat I am filled with rage. The thought that it could be forced on someone like that. But does he mean the family registry or does he mean the civil marriage? Because I was assuming the registry, somehow. Which isn't legal status necessarily (is it, I don't know?) but it's still somehow more official to them. There's no rule about which one you do first, I do know that.
JoAnne: Do they not see that this woman is nuts?
kakashi: And does she not see this family is nuts?!
JoAnne: No maybe. She was hurt, poor thing.
JoAnne: Big Kang is in Fated to Love You (Korean Style) and acts like a big nerd... this guy is good. I luff him. Even more, I mean.
JoAnne: None. And it's apparently a thing because I saw Shinee Minho do the exact same thing in The Beautiful You. It seems awkward, less than effective, and unnecessarily pants-wetting. Also: if you are wondering, Minho's torso was WAYYYYYYYY more beautiful than Little Kang's is.
JoAnne: I don't understand why he didn't go in? (jealous, insecure, hurt?) And awwwwwww.... also, wow, in this gif, she looks quite a bit like Shin Min Ah, who is one of my top prettiest ladies in K-Ent.
Min-jung is back at Bi Sool Chae, but Bong2 is still suspicious of her. As you should be, man, as you should be! Not that it lasts long. See further below.
JoAnne: I want to poke my eyes out with rusty spoons. Which means this is good, I guess. Damn you for making me care!
Jung-ran finds out that Bi-dan is definitely not Big Kang's daughter through GooDIL (who comes to eat some PPL pizza) and it seems they're together again now? No kisses yet, but lots of touching.
JoAnne: I cannot wait for this wedding. I hope it happens soon enough that there is time for the adorable pregnancy and the even more adorable baby. I think he's the kind of guy that experiences sympathetic morning sickness, don't you?
JoAnne: Wait until she finds out who Big Kang REALLY is... and as for unpleasant, it came across as more kid-spoiled, not evil-adult, to me. But I'm ready for her to mature. Can she hang out with Chan Yeol?
Min-jung gets to meet the "daughter of House Electronics" (I laugh every time I read this) - who is a total arrogant brat. Min-jung hears about her plans when she gets married. And here comes Jae-hee! For his first meeting with his future bride. He witnesses Min-jung's humiliation (House Electronics throws water at her for being insolent and ... Jae-hee Protector Genes, activate!!! He breaks off his engagement with House Electronics and drags Min-jung out. What a fooooool (though right at that moment, I think I would have preferred Min-jung to that Brat as well)
JoAnne: He dodged a major bullet there, yep... but ugh. Min Jung. And I'm back on the aww, Jae Hee, you were such a sweet boy, protecting all the things, come back! band wagon.
JoAnne: This was very nearly Min Jung's shining moment as an evil plotting bitch because I was really wavering on the 'is this REAL' fence too! And Jae Hee is soooo cute and sweet naturally, I don't want him to be angry-bad anymore. I want him to be like he was. I miss that adorable little boy with the terrible hair.
JoAnne: This was all very confusing to me because it seems quite unnecessary. That copyright threat seems counterproductive, but then she brings it all home with the mother story... except that if I was BaDIL I'd be forever on my guard because now she knows beyond a doubt what Min Jung is capable of. It just seems out of place, this whole piece.
JoAnne: MASTERFUL timing. MASTERFUL.
No, we won't be fooled, show. We know that Bori's identity will not be revealed in the next episode! You do this all the time, I've noticed. I wonder what will go wrong though ... Veggie will change her mind, will lose heart? (could be, judging from the preview). Or she might get amnesia!
JoAnne: I give up even guessing. This show is crazy-good.
