JoAnne: Man. I need to go hug my daughter. (Starts crying again because, can't right now.)
In the dye-yard, Min-jung challenges Bori to go take a DNA test - cause she's in for a nasty surprise if she does. Her real mother? Not what she seems. The terrible secret will be revealed after Bori steps forward as Eun-bi (by Min-jung, of course) and the world of the Hanbokers will be in turmoil, Min-jung says into Bori's ear - she will definitely lose both mothers. YES! Do it, Bori! It's the best that can happen to you!
JoAnne: Is it just me or is this quieter Min Jung... I don't know, slightly terrifying, maybe? Like, maybe they should put extra security at night even 20 years from now, because she's going to get out of prison and stab them all?
kakashi: Perfect villain. This actress does REALLY WELL.
JoAnne: I do understand her hesitation, although a LARGE part of my heart says screw that woman, she's hateful. But still, your mother is your mother - and do you want your introduction to a family to be the thing that destroys that family? Little does she know that family was destroyed long ago and she'd be doing them a favor.
JoAnne: In a universe where every day MinJung wakes up thinking she's the one in the right and everyone else is wrong... is it really so strange that Jae Hee believes if you can't see the evidence, no crime was committed?
The meeting between BaDIL and Min-jung shortly after is tense: Min-jung lies that the hanbok were made properly but Bori and Jae-hwa lied about it (suuuuuuuure), but you know what, Troll? Your "mother" has seen the pictures of the faulty hanbok. Hahahaaaaaa. And she also knows you lied about the Bori-Eunbi-picture thing. Oh, but now, Min-jung shows her real face: she tells her mother that finding Eun-bi means the end of BaDIL at Bi Sool Chae, isn't that so? Oups ... BaDIL realizes the Troll must know something.
JoAnne: That was hilariously funny until you saw that subtle shift on her face and became frightening. Lee Yuri, you are one damned fine actress and you are playing your heart out. Now that I know what a fuzzy kitten hello kitty inexperienced actress she is, to see her do this is amazing.
JoAnne: Do it do it hurt the bad people do it we don't mind honest.
Almost 26 minutes in until Kim Ji-hoon appears. I'm sure he's enjoying a schedule that's not stressful but I am NOT OKAY with this! He is very busy at work, showing great talent for all that business stuff. The phone rings and it's his Bori Bori! But she's not in a mood for pleasantry ... just waiting for him downstairs. Thanks to a colleague, he hears about it and gets Bori to bring him food.
JoAnne: You have to admit, though, that his few moments were FULLY utilized, not to mention so stuffed with cute that three of my teeth fell out from the sugar.
JoAnne: Ah, my heart. Just make a baby and kill me, already.
JoAnne: No dwelling in the past with crybabies!
JoAnne: Sniff... he had it made for her from his memory of his mother's ring. So sweet.
JoAnne: There's never going to be a baby, is there.
kakashi: Just wait until she lets him near some other regions of her body.
JoAnne: I was laughing because my immediate thought was 'why isn't this under 'The Rest' and then I remembered how cute he was here just as I got to your sentence.
JoAnne: YES. Would have been slightly better if Jae Hee had been lurking around the corner, but only slightly. This is like one of those really good long drawn out sneezes.
JoAnne: What like you weren't already going to the end, you midget maniac? And I'm taking odds Bori ends up making up with Veggie. And where the hell is Bi Dan while runs around town having dramatic confrontations anyway? And yeah - BaDIL - man, she has practically staked her sanity on this not being Eun Bi. I don't know how you come back from that.
JoAnne: That was just... really, really, REALLY good. The change in his voice as he made his speech through the tears he was holding back. The way they both held it in at half power until the end when they really let loose. That was really something to see. Very real feeling.
At the hotel, Jae-hee gets his wife's clutch back. Inside, there two rings ... but not Min-jung's and Jae-hee's. They're rings with the initials MJ and JS. Jae-hee doesn't need long until he has a pretty good idea what these initials could stand for ...
JoAnne: Jae Hee, dude, if you were going to lose faith so quickly, why did you not do it BEFORE the wedding? Oh wait... still not registered, right? Ah hahahahaha, boot the bitch out on her ass, stark naked.
JoAnne: You cannot be an evil mastermind with such ridiculously weak game, MinJung. Thank God you're such a moron, though.
Moony, who still has a set of keys, takes the documents out of Min-jung's car - while she is trying to suck up to her MIL in the house. Bad Dad comes back and says go and switch the engine of your car off - it's still running! Min-jung panics as she belatedly remembers Moony has a key, but the envelope is still there! What a relief, Troll, right?
JoAnne: See, I could thoroughly enjoy a concerted effort to make her think she's losing her mind.
That very moment, Jae-hee arrives and Min-jung has to go back in. In their room, Jae-hee gives her the clutch back and watches her closely as she looks at the "wrong" rings. Since she only knows how to lie, she says that the thieves with a consciousness probably put some cheap rings in after stealing the diamond rings - and throws them into the bin. He takes them out again once she has left.
JoAnne: He stares at them sadly, thinking, 'I married an idiot.'
JoAnne: I just realized she looks like Jessica Rabbit.
JoAnne: Yep, MinJung's secrets are coming out - if not from one angle, then from another. It's allll over but the singing.
Magic sperm alert! Jung-ran is pregnant! Btw, Niiiiiiiice legs there, Big Kang!
JoAnne: Well, I did say I wanted this baby, too.
JoAnne: Sure, that's why she's doing it. At this point I'm willing to think MinJung is behind the disappearing honeybees.
BaDIL and Min-jung discuss a new collection - and finally, Moony does it! He smuggles in a photo of Veggie with little Eun-bi. It's a bit late - but better late than never.
JoAnne: I'm glad I didn't see this part at lunch. The lady's room is too far away from my cube.
This was Jae-hee's hour to "shine". Poor sod. Too late - but better now than never! I like that he is suspicious and I hope he will see the light soon. He deserves it, poor kid with the terrible hair.
JoAnne: I am perfectly willing for him to be 100% redeemed.
Moony finally hit where it hurt and now it's just a matter of ... episodes until Min-jung gets what she deserves. Who thinks she'll get redemption? I'm beginning to doubt there's any possible. She hasn't even started to realize that she has been doing evil stuff all her life and we only have 13 episodes left!
JoAnne: Hahahahahah it kills me that we're both panicking that that there are so few episodes left when it's still nearly an entire drama's worth remaining.
JoAnne: Well think about it, with the secret out now, what's left? Min Jung rampaging. Perfect opportunity for the two brothers to bond together to fight Evil, save the company, reconcile families, make babies, do whatever. Maybe we should text suggestions to @jraishin99 or whatever his twitter is.
kakashi: Yeah, good idea. Let's start "Operation BoriBori"!
