Dal Bong chooses the worst timing to burst in and tell Daddy Cha how grateful he is that Daddy Cha is giving him the inheritance early.
Standing outside with the coffee Tae Joo bought for her, Kang Shim can't help but give a little smile when she remember Tae Joo's declaration of "I will make us possible one percent at a time" the night before.
Wook Tak calls Kang Shim to try to discuss Daddy Cha with her, but Kang Shim hangs up on him before he can finish talking.
Feeling on top of the world just thinking about the large amount of inheritance that is coming his way, Dal Bong can hardly stop gloating as he offers to buy half of the restaurant from Eun Ho AND turns down the chef's offer to be his personal assistant.
Young Sul marches over to Daddy Cha and tells him what her mom has decided. When Daddy Cha assures that he will smooth things over with Auntie Cha, Young Sul refuses his offer, instead she demands that Kang Jae and Kang Shim kneel to Auntie Cha and offer up their apology to her mom.
Feeling attacked, Kang Shim and Kang Jae defend themselves and eventually Kang Jae ends up pouring out his true feeling that as much as Aunti Cha keep asserting she has suffered for their sake, the three siblings has also put up with a lot by by having Auntie Cha and her family imposing on their home.
Shocked to hear Kang Jae's words, Auntie Cha and Young Sul begins to wail loudly.
Things quickly spins out of control when Daddy Cha starts to yell at Kang Jae and tells the two siblings to not ever dream about taking his house or store from him. In fact, Daddy Cha tells them "I will even take it with me to hell."
Always one to make things worse, Hyo Jin offers up the suggestion that each of the siblings set aside some money from their inheritance to give to Auntie Cha in hopes that this will pacify Auntie Cha and allow the inheritance deal to go through.
Kang Shim goes to Young Sul and her husband to tell them about the three siblings' willingness to give Auntie Cha money. Young Sul's anger quickly dissipates the moment Kang Shim mentions the money. However, Young Sul's husband reminds Kang Shim a very important question that she has not considered "You guys will still have enough money after the government takes 30% of the inheritance for early withdrawal?"
Opposite from the tension in Kang Shim's family, Tae Joo's family is one of contentment now that both Tae Joo and Eun Ho is sharing dinner with their parents.
Wook Tak meets with Kang Shim and tells her just enough to let her know that he knows everything that is going on in her family but stop short of actually telling her that Daddy Cha is thinking about suing them.
Wook Tak does admit that he sees Kang Shim's family problem as an opportunity for him to talk to her but Kang Shim storms off and refuses to have anything more to do with him.
Watching Kang Shim's leave, Wook Tak mutters "I guess normal talking is not still not possible."
This guy is starting to creep me out.
Seo Wool goes to the tofu store to comfort Daddy Cha but ends up overhearing Daddy Cha and Woo Tak agreeing on going forward with the lawsuit.
I am speechless. What?! I knew from the synopsis of this show that Daddy Cha would sue his kids some point in the story but the way the writer have written this is kinda ridiculous.
In all actuality, Daddy Cha's three kids are often thoughtless and guilty of ignoring their dad's needs BUT nothing in their dealings so far merits a lawsuit. Most of their issue could be avoided if Daddy Cha just tells his kids what he is feeling honestly instead of relying on his sister to go crying and complaining for him while he sits hiding in his room. No wonder the kids doesn't like Auntie Cha when she has always been the one to complain to them about things she really has no place to talk to them about.
If Daddy Cha really got a wake up call from his doctor because of some illness then it makes even less sense why he is wasting precious time dragging all his kids through the mud by filing a lawsuit against them. Way to leave a legacy to your kids by being the father who is willing to sue them instead of just talking to them.
Moreover, I don't understand Daddy Cha's ground for the lawsuit. He tells Wook Tak that he wants to get back all the sacrifice he has done for his kids in monetary value. However, how does that reasoning even make sense. His kids didn't ask to be born in to this world, so do they now owe him for every diaper and morsel of food that he chose to give them? As a child, should his kids have sign a contract saying if you buy me this toy I will repay you with interest so many years later? If we follow that reasoning then does the kids now have the right to sue Daddy Cha for every knee scrape and emotional scars in their life?
The irony is that if we follow where Daddy Cha is going with his reasoning then Kang Jae actually has a reason to hold a resentment towards him for not providing the best circumstance for him to compete in the world. If a parent is going to expect payment for all the care they provided to their kids then shouldn't the kids have the right to the best of everything money can buy since there is no reason to feel beholden to their parents as long as the whole thing is just a monetary transaction.
|Professor Kwon telling his wife to get a different hobby than land development.|
The only bright spot in this whole mess is that the lawsuit is going to blow up right in the face of Madam Kwon. She thought she was doing so well in plotting for Kang Jae and her family's sake but now her son-in-law's is going be a laughing stock for being sued by his own father thanks to her.
ps. I was surprised to find out that Madam Kwon really had no ulterior motive than being interested in the land development. I always thought for sure she had some grand evil scheme but turns out she just really like buying land.
