Daddy Cha gets a surprised visit from Kang Jae who actually acts quite calm about Daddy Cha's dating rumor and even tells his father to go ahead and date ... with the condition that Daddy Cha turns over all his assets to his kids' name. Seriously, that has to hurt when you realize your kids is already eyeing your money just waiting for the day you die.
Turns out Tae Joo's mom was also President Moon's secretary. Like Kang Shim, Tae Joo's mom was extremely competent and comfortable to be with. President Moon, heart broken from Madam Baek's betrayal mistakenly thought his dependence on his secretary was love and married her.
With a sincere tone, President Moon tells his son "Don't make the same mistake I did and perhaps produce another son who can't bear to eat with other people."
Stunned by his father's confession, Tae Joo falls into deep thoughts.
That surprised me, but I guess everything makes sense now. President Moon! You are even cooler now!
In the middle of a meeting together, all Kang Shim can think of is the five hundred million won while Tae Joo's mind is filled with prospect of kissing Kang Shim.
Auntie Cha is dismayed to hear from Daddy Cha that he is actually planning to listen to Kang Jae's request and turn over his assets to the kids. Fearing Daddy Cha would be left in destitute, Auntie Cha asks her brother to reconsider but he assures her he has made up his mind.
Daddy Cha has another run in with Mrs. Ko who sends him away with a scarf as a gift.
Arriving home, Daddy Cha sheepishly looks at the tofu store mutters "Okay, Okay" and take the scarf off before he walks into the door. I am assuming he is saying that to his deceased wife?
Feeling bad that Dal Bong has never had a birthday celebration because that is also the day of his mom's death anniversary, Seo Wool convinces Eun Ho to throw a surprise party for him.
Face glowing from his happiness to have a real birthday for once, Dal Bong asks Seo Wool for a special birthday gift - a kiss. Actually it ended up being a quick peck, then a real kiss.
Arriving at Kang Shim's house, the two starts to bid farewell to each other, but suddenly Tae Joo starts to pour out his heart to Kang Shim.
Tae Joo, muttering to himself "I don't think it will take a kiss to figure out my feelings after all."
Kang Shim looks at Tae Joo with puzzlement at his nonsensical words.
With a confident smile, Tae Joo tells Kang Shim "You say there is not even one in a hundred percent of a chance? Then I will raise it one percent at a time." Melt. So cool.
In the privacy of her front yard, Kang Shim holds her pounding heart and wonders...
The two siblings walks into the house fully expecting a tongue-lashing from Auntie Cha. Never shy in the tongue-lashing department, Auntie Cha delivers the expected sermon and more.
Offended by Auntie Cha's scorching words that he is just plotting after his father's money, Kang Jae storms out.
Kang Shim chases after Kang Jae to try to convince him to go back, but Kang Jae ends up venting all his anger right in the hearing distance of everyone.
Hearing Kang Jae's harsh words of "Fine! I am going to cut off all my association with the Cha family, and let father go live in bliss with Auntie," Daddy Cha sobs in silence.
With a pause, Daddy Cha first hesitantly then with conviction "I am going to sue Cha Kang Shim, Cha Kang Jae and Cha Dal Bong."
Stunned, Wook Tak "You are going to sue..."
Daddy Cha "Yes, I am suing my kids."
Hmm... that was kinda surprising. I wonder if next week we will have a flash back to tell us more of what happened between Daddy Cha and his kids to explain this sudden decision to sue his kids. I don't quite buy that our big softy Daddy Cha would be so quick to sue his kids over what has transpired so far.
Sure, Kang Jae is a big jerk all of the time, Kang Shim is pretty selfish when it comes to her father and Dal Bong is just young and thoughtless but to the point of taking them to court?? Wouldn't it just be easier to disown Kang Jae, kick Kang Shim and Dal Bong out? Plus can a court really judge who is right and wrong in this case?
The kids are selfish jerks... but Daddy Cha raised them that way. Auntie Cha... Well, I am not sure what Auntie Cha and her family's beef is. They all act like they have been so mistreated but they have been staying at Daddy Cha's house without paying anything for years. Of course, Auntie Cha could argue she has also worked tirelessly for the family but that just makes them even right? I don't know, is this just the western side of me talking??
I can't judge Auntie Cha's motive, but her daughter and son-in-law are definitely more concerned about their own welfare when it comes to the house transfer than Daddy Cha's rights. Daddy Cha is nice to let them stay at his house for free, but as full grown adults (with a child no less), they have the responsibility to support themselves.
I do have a problem with the three siblings' assumption that Daddy Cha's assets should be theirs. My own view has always been "just don't leave me with debts, then you can do whatever you want with your money" when it comes to inheritance but I wonder if most people holds my view. However, I will admit that I totally understand why the money would be such an attraction to Kang Shim and Dal Bong since it could really change their life but I think all those two needs is just a good talking from our trusty Seo Wool to set them right. Kang Jae, on the other hand, needs a divorce and a good beating regardless if it sets him right.
