My Lovely Girl Epsiode 13 Recap
Without any preamble, Se Na asks "Did you know from the start? Did you know who I was?"
With a pause, Hyun Wook answers in affirmative.
Angrily, Se Na yells "What did you not say something? If I knew then I would not have liked you or asked you to like me back. Things would not have to come this far." She has a good point.
Hyun Wook, looking pained takes a step towards Se Na while calling her name. Quickly, Se Na takes a step back "Don't come close to me", then leaving Hyun Wook there, goes back to her house.
Instead of being happy though, Hae Yoon is filled with guilt that her drunken words to Jae Yeong has resulted in Hyun Wook's sadness.
Listening to Hae Yoon's tearful confession, Hyun Wook tells her "It's alright. She would have found out sooner or later. I just wished I had more time before that happened."
Shi Woo, of course is overjoyed by the fact Se Na stayed but upon meeting Se Na in person he wonders why Se Na seems to have changed.
Over drinks with Sung Jin, Hyun Wook laments "Why didn't you stop me? This way I would have hurt Se Na less." Good naturally, Sung Jin tells Hyun Wook that he'll take the responsibility and asks Hyun Wook to not go into self exile again.
Perhaps feeling the reality of mortality, President Lee shows up at Hyun Wook's house and strong arms Hyun Wook into have a drink with him. With a touch finality, President Lee apologizes to Hyun Wook for the whole mess with So Eun and for forcing him to take over AnA while the company is in crisis.
Now that Hyun Wook is back at AnA, he also has to brace himself for frequent run ins with Se Na and Shi Woo since Se Na has agreed to be Shi Woo's composer. The first chance meeting was a bit awkward with Shi Woo happily lumping himself with Se Na at every turn, but Hyun Wook was able to keep a calm face... for the most part.
Seeing the depressed expression on Se Na's face after their meeting with Hyun Wook, Shi Woo takes Se Na out for drinks. Watching Se Na making a valiant effort in drowning her sorrow with alcohol, Shi Woo finally asks the question he has been wanting to know "What is your relationship with Director Lee?" Giving Shi Woo the most honest answer, Se Na answers "The kind of relationship that can't have any relationship."
Without any idea why Se Na and Hyun Wook broke up, Joo Hong's boyfriend charges over to Hyun Wook's house and thinking he is helping Se Na, reassures Hyun Wook that Se Na is completely depressed and has even resorted to drinking because of the "fight" between them.
The next morning, Shi Woo makes matter worse and tells Hyun Wook that AnA has to keep Se Na as his composer even if Se Na can't compose since her composer block is due to Hyun Wook. Poor guy, how is he suppose to keep up the pretense everything is okay if everyone in the world lines up to tell him how miserable the girl he loves is.
Se Na "Stop this! This is how we started in the first place. Don't be concerned about me, don't try to be nice to me." Ha, I love how blunt she is. Plus she is right.
Not sure what else to say, Hyun Wook protests "I am just trying to help as AnA's president."
In frustration, Se Na exclaimed "I was trying so hard to hold it all in..."
Sigh... If only grabbing a girl and declaring she is your actually work... The sad thing about such declaration is of course that it's only a happy occasion if it comes from the guy you like. When it comes from the guy you DON'T like then is just an annoying problem.
I always had a secret wish that in such situation the heroine would wretch her hand away and loudly points at her ex "You, OUT!" then points at the second lead " You are nice, but sorry no sparks there." Looking at both guys the heroine would proudly declare "There are plenty of other guys, there is no reason I can't find someone else I like... so bye." I guess if my wish come true that will be the death of a lot of K-dramas.
While I wasn't happy with with how Hyun Wook handled his romance with Se Na and his self admitted cowardly action certainly didn't earn him brownie points I do feel like they are understandable. After all if we as human beings can act rationally in love then so much happiness and pain wouldn't come from it.
Anyhow, now that both of our leads has established their relationship is at an end and the only thing to do is to get over their respective yearning for each other I am quite interested to see how the rest of the story line will develop.
