JoAnne: I made no apologies. Of course, I'm not sitting in a hotel lobby.
Episode 41This starts off with a BANG! Moony in da house! In the Lee house, actually. He is there to deliver "the original evidence" by hand. Bad Dad is like: huh? What's being played here? Min-jung grabs the envelope (she probably wants to rip it apart again, right? ahahaaa), trying to blame Moony for stalking-threatening her again but Moony says: "Why not look at it together, here? We will see who is threatening and who is a lying, conceited, evil bitch!" (all that stuff cannot go down to "The Rest" today, no, it cannot)
JoAnne: Basically nothing today is 'the rest' except for the bit about Big Kang's dream.
JoAnne: I think he just hides it so he can process what the situation is before he needs to react to any one else knowing what the situation is.
JoAnne: You know better than that, my friend.
JoAnne: At a certain point don't you have to look at someone and say you know what, you might be right: it might be coincidence plus people who are jealous plus bad luck. But whatever it is, I don't want that bad juju in MY life. Wouldn't it be kind of awesome if she lost Jae Hee not because she couldn't come up with plausible excuses but because he just got tired of the drama?
JoAnne: He's very cat-like. Just wants to lie in the sun and and lick himse... umm.... well he's very snuggly.
JoAnne: For an idiot, over the top character, a pretty rational response. But you can bet she doesn't want it known she was in that market that night, regardless.
JoAnne: I fully expect her to be called a liar by Bi Dan and have Bori and Jae Hwa accused of coaching her.
JoAnne: I keep giving her the benefit of the doubt because I can SEE that she cares about Bori (now) and she feels terrible about Min Jung's behavior and her own treatment of young Bori, but there's still that part of her that is just unable to completely throw Min Jung under the bus. She also has that unfortunate tendency to not say what she thinks or feels. It's going to cost her big time.
JoAnne: And I don't get the reason for it, nor do I think it's particularly kind. I understand her reluctance to make the change, at first, and I understand how awkward and difficult and overwhelming it must be to just have the axis of your entire world SHIFT like that... but he should have been the first person she told.
JoAnne: At first I was like...why throw her that bone, writer? But later, I'm ok with it.
The Hanboker's are at Veggie's place, ready to take Bori/Eun-bi with them. Forever. And Bori is so ready to drop Veggie like a hot potato, too - too many lies, too many times she protected Min-jung to the detriment of Bori. When Veggie clings to her hand though ... oh. Tears. This is sad. BaDIL's raging against Veggie a bit later, when they're alone, summarizes all the sins committed towards Bori "nicely". No, we shouldn't forget ... Veggie really destroyed Bori's life. If she hadn't met Jae-hwa, she would be down and out. And I can't accept Veggie's anger against BaDIL for "never treating Min-jung liker her daughter". For christsake, Min-jung brought this on to herself! All of it!
JoAnne: I had been thinking mostly of how sad it was, but when you pointed out that if she hadn't met Jae Hwa things would be very different... that puts it into perspective.
JoAnne: Mine too!
JoAnne: This show has earned so much good will from me they could decide to put the girls in a competition on Running Man to see who gets to stay and who has to leave and I would not care in the slightest.
The dinner will be happening outside and Jae-hwa is about to die from nervousness. Where is Eun-bi?! She is coming! says Bong2 - Jae-hwa, you go and bring her. He takes a deep breath, turns around and .... coming towards him are Bori and Bi-dan. Woooooot? The stupid Lees go ... what are you doing, Jae-hwa? You're bringing this woman with her bastard child here? So it goes on and on and on ... until FINALLY, Bong2 steps up and says: "This is our Eun-bi".
JoAnne: Could they not HEAR Dumb Mom?
Jae-hwa thinks it's a JOKE, and yeah, you've been p0wned alright, man. But when he turns to Bori/Eun-bi, demanding to hear it from her own lips, I stop laughing, I assure you. *Bawls*. OMG. I don't need to recap what they're saying, do I? It's just little things from 20 years ago. So touching. So moving. *bawls some more while waving political scientists who want to help away* STOP CRYING
JoAnne: Ok but hello, when did she remember EVERYTHING? Did it all come back when she recognized her father? Because honestly, I didn't think she 'recognized' him, I think she accepted who he was.
I don't think she remembers "everything" yet. It's slowly coming back. Bits and pieces.
JoAnne: LMAO ok but she's still a single mother, says Dumb Mom. Oh by the way - that was AWWWWWESOME part of the conversation between Veggie and BaDIL back at the house: each mother accusing the other of not watching carefully enough over the grown daughter and allowing her to become pregnant.
JoAnne: Yeah because that's the important part of this, Jae Hee. *disappointed face*
He's in denial. The fool.
And then, he tells her: "Don't touch me without my permission from now on" and drives away. Heheheeeeee. Wow, and the poor man doesn't even know half of it. Min-jung babbles something about "not my Jae-hee" and wants to follow after him - when the door to her car opens and Moony comes in. He tells her to come somewhere with him. She tries to resist, but then, she remembers the tracker that Jae-hee had installed underneath her car and thinks this might be "her chance". She is delusional, right?!
JoAnne: And thus begins the set up to some truly masterful plotting.
JoAnne: Which reminds me of BaDIL telling MinfuckingJung that if they had loved her, it wouldn't have mattered when Eun Bi came back; they would still have loved her. But she destroyed that all on her own. Yessss.
Moony has dragged Min-jung to the factory site his father had built - the last one that remained after the loan sharks had taken everything. Min-jung has already texted Jae-hee, begging for his help. At the warehouse, Min-jung is screaming at Moony to kill her and keeps insulting him and his parents, over and over. He slaps her - she goes down. Behind them, Jae-hee arrives (that was quick).
JoAnne: Poor guy, he still loves her. And for a minute here I think oh Moony when will you stop getting PLAYED, because next...
JoAnne: This is awesome and all but am I the only one who thinks Little Kei when they read Little Kang. Not the same thing at all. But anyway... I just assume that once again, people are quick enough to catch Min Jung but not quick enough to realize she can lie faster than other people can BREATHE...
JoAnne: Upon which I scream FINALLY THE SECOND PUNCH! and debate kissing my computer monitor.
The RestHahaha, it's Kim Ji-hoon's turn to dress up like a halmoni - he is Jung-ran's mother. He/she visits the Lee house, in which more feeding of Jung-ran is going on. Hahaha, what?! "Jae-hwa resembles my mother a lot?!" This show! Really! Of course, it's a dream too, but this time, it's Big Kang's. And would you believe it? He has morning sickness. Yeah, the phantom kind. Awwww.
JoAnne: I no longer have time for anything that distracts from the awesomeness of Operation Destroy Min Jung.
JoAnne: The best part is, I totally wasn't expecting it.
And YES, he did it! He did his EXO dance :) (it's an Exo song, but not Exo that dances, is it? I think it's a new band. He introduced them on twitter) He is so cute OMG I'm dying. This bit will be part of episode 42 it seems :)
JoAnne: He can dance his little tushie off! That is too cute! Do you see how impressed Bori and Bi Dan are?
Well, they're all acting. But yeah, I'm sure they were REALLY impressed. Me too. *hugs Kim Ji-hoon magazine even tighter*
