Make a Woman Cry Episode 3-4 Recap
His trouble with the law solved, but Jung Cheo still faces dismissal from the school for bullying. Apologizing to the victim sincerely, Jung Cheo seems to accept his dismissal with calmness.
Overjoyed for Jung Cheo, Jin Woo rushes to Deok In's eatery to tell her the happy news. Unable to contain his excitement, Jin Woo throws his arm around Jin Woo.
Deok In's happy mood over Jung Cheo's good news was soon spoiled by Jin Hee's appearance and self introduction "I am the woman that is going to marry Gyeong Cheol (Deok In's husband)."
Increasingly frustrated by how unfazed Deok In seems to be by her appearance, Jin Hee decides to go for the kill "Gyeong Cheol said he doesn't even miss your son anymore." Deok In's son died in a car accident, so this was obviously a very low blow and one that certainly will hurt Deok In the most.
When Jin Woo answers in affirmative after a small hesitation (his wife has died), Deok In asks "Have you ever looked at a woman and thought she was cute?" Seeing Jin Woo's stunned face, Deok In quickly waves her question away.
Disappointed and hurt by Gyeong Cheol's words, Mama Hwang tells him to leave and that from that moment on he is no longer a member of the family.
I really like Mama Hwang. Unlike your usual Korean drama moms who always unconditionally support their son even when they are complete jerks, Mama Hwang remembers all the sacrifices Deok In did for her family.
Sitting around the table with all of her in-laws and looking at Gyeong Cheol's siblings who she practically raised, Deok In is moved to tears when she thinks what a divorce would mean.
Angered by Deok In's refusal to sign the divorce paper, Gyeong Cheol storms into her eatery and slams down an envelope of money. After telling Deok In that the money is from Jin Hee, Gyeong Cheol stumps off.
Gyeong Cheol's words takes the fight out of Deok In and she finds herself unable to chase after him. Having witnessed the whole unpleasant exchange, Jin Woo finally finds a good time to excuse himself from the eatery but shows back up again with bandages for Deok In's wound.
I really like this show! By episode four I am really not thinking of Angry Mom when I watch Make a Woman Cry anymore and the two show really feels very different at this point.
By the way, I do want to mention a plot line that I have completely ignored during my recap:
We found out already in the first two episodes that Jin Woo is actually from a chaebol family but this week we find out that Jin Woo's relationship with his older brother has been strained ever since he saw something that makes he suspect that Jin Myeong (the older brother) didn't save their oldest brother's life on purpose.

The one complaint I do have with this show is the whole Kang family plot line. I don't necessary mind watching the cat fight between Hong Ran and her sister-in-law but it just feels like a completely separate story than the one Deok In is in. I am sure the Kang family is going to be pretty important especially once our two leads start to get romantically involved but as for right now I can't help but feel like I am watching two shows at once.
However, I am really liking the two leads interaction and find myself sucked into Deok In's life struggles, so I will just ignore the minor irritants and keep waiting for the next episode!
