Sorry for the delay! Internet in Nairn stopped working when I wanted to upload the pictures ...
Oh! We're getting closer and closer to the truth! It feels the BIG reveal is just around the corner (how many times have I said that though?!), but I guess we'll need about 10 more episodes for that? Also, Jae-hwa and Bori are getting closer, but I wouldn't mind some real romance between them, not just drunken hijinks. Overall, this is a very good episode, which makes me crave more. So glad it's almost time for the next episode!
JoAnne: Yeah, they need to start REALLY being a couple, not just a couple of people who like each other. And they need to figure out what Bi Dan is thinking, FAST, because I can't cry like that every week. We can drag out the inept Min Jung plotting right to the last minute though, if it means we can continue to see her get stomped at every turn by our awesome gang of Anti-MinJungers.
Min-jung's skillful lying is interrupted by the entrance of her mother! Ah, rejoice! Veggie looks from one daughter to the other, with tears in her eyes. She turns around and confesses that she gave the hanbok that Bori made for her to Min-jung. And she falls on her knees. In her head, she apologizes to Min-jung and thinks she needs to be Bori's mother for a change. Min-jung tries to get out of this mess by lying again, but uri prosecutor has more proof: Min-jung bought her mother the cellphone. The account is under her name. Oh, and even more damning: Min-jung gave Veggie the original hanbok top that Bori made. Oopsie.
JoAnne: See? She's either lazy or stupid or completely misguided about the intelligence of her opponenents. Well that could file under stupid, I guess. She's either lazy or stupid. Either way, it's HILARIOUS every time.

JoAnne: I'm not satisfied! BaDIL should be stripped of her duties! What's to reconsider? You talking about evil hanboks makes me want very much a story about a hanbok that reveals the ugliness of people like Min Jung when they put it on. It shows their true face and makes them tell the truth, kind of like the red shoes make the dancer dance and dance and dance.
JoAnne: Don't you love how she just asks for information or to be given things that could potentially harm her (so she can get rid of it) as if she truly expects people to just hand over the evidence they have? And one of these days I want her to have to stand there and just be slapped by everyone she's messed with. Like a receiving line but with slapping.
JoAnne: Jae Hee hurts my heart. I just keep seeing the sweet boy with the terrible hair and the good heart and wishing for him to come back.
JoAnne: What does he mean, 'go after', anyway... it's not like Jae Hwa doesn't have the right. He has MORE right. He's the oldest son, it should have been his - he only abdicated because he didn't want the family drama. Anyway it certainly seems like it could be big enough to support both of them having a leadership role of some sort.
JoAnne: I think those things happened pre-recognition of her contribution to Min Jung's behavior, though... and I do realize that she revealed the truth out of love and concern for BOTH girls, so I don't think for a minute that she's done trying to help Min Jung if she can. I just think she will be more thoughtful about what kind of help she provides, for what kind of plans. I am pretty sure she's not going to harm Bori in the process ever again - at least not deliberately.
JoAnne: I thought we were done with her but I am feeling stirrings of awesome with this little plot off shoot.
JoAnne: See? Clothing business. Awesomeness brewing.
JoAnne: Since I really dislike being drunk (and even more, sick after!) I get kind of tired of these scenes. I like tipsy. I'm good at tipsy. I'm FUN at tipsy. Well, I'm more fun. Most people are! Why does anyone need more than tipsy?
JoAnne: Happy sighs about that.
Bi-dan has to go to kindie by herself because both her mom and "dad" threw up all night (pfffffft). AppaNotOppa picks her up outside his new place and gives her a ride - she is very pleased, because she was always jealous of kids riding to kindie in a car. She would also love to go to an amusement park, she tells him. So he takes her! That's probably not good?!
JoAnne: Seriously. WTF.
JoAnne: It only took forfuckingever. I mean come ON, they live together.
Big Kang finds his wallet on Little Kang and immediately acts on this big opportunity by calling Bad Dad and offering to meet with him (as his big savior). There's a huge gathering at the pizza place next (well, "huge". Ga-eul is there as well), and .... hahaha. Every scene with Big Kang is a winner!!! Big Kang asks for Jung-ran's hand, Bad Dad keeps refusing. When Ga-eul realizes that Big Kang is Little Kang's brother (and is penniless), she also suddenly opposes the marriage. Because Bad Dad always listens to Ga-eul, that's the end of things. Ga-eul, I don't like you.
JoAnne: I don't think that's it. It's going to be that thing about marrying two members of the same family. So if her aunt marries Big Kang, she can't marry Little Kang. Either that, or she's afraid that the association will tarnish Little Kang in such a way that her father won't allow her to be with him.
JoAnne: I'm shaking my head at how contrived this subplot is anyway.
JoAnne: Right? She even fools us!
JoAnne: He puts it in her bag.
JoAnne: I cannot stop laughing. This show trolls its own characters, that's how awesome it is.
Is this the end of Min-jung's lies? Will she finally be kicked out from Bi Sool Chae? It seems possible. I really liked the twist with Dumb Mom being under pressure to accept the marriage because of her own (misguided) guilt - I didn't expect that at all. I somewhat doubt that Min-jung will REALLY get to marry Jae-hee though, which is a shame, because I would love to see her suffer in that household (and I would love to see her as Bori's younger sister-in-law). And I can't wait to see whether Jae-hwa remembers about his marriage-wish - and what he will do to finally win Bori over.
JoAnne: I'm not at all convinced Min Jung is done with her evil ways, and I can't decide if she will get to marry Jae Hee and then get kicked out, or if she will get to the altar and then get kicked out, or if she will get kicked out earlier than that, even. What's worse to you? Getting THISCLOSE to what you want and then having it snatched away, or getting a tiny, tiny taste of it before it gets snatched away?
