Turns out, Jin Woo's student and the student's sister is being chased for money because they accidentally hurt a man. Deok In steps in to protect the student's sister when the rough looking man threatens the poor girl, but can do nothing since the man does have the right to sue the kids for the accident.
Deok In and Jin Woo confronts the man together but when the man starts beating Deok In up, instead of hitting back she just takes it. Not understanding why Deok In is allowing herself to be beaten, Jin Woo nonetheless steps in to try to stop the man. Not surprisingly, Jin Woo ended up getting beat up himself.
Deok In "Were you worried about me?"
A bit taken back by how Deok In could just ask those kind of question right out, Jin Woo admits that of course he was worried.
Still puzzled, Deok In asks "How come my husband has never said something like that to me before, but a teacher who has no connection to me at all would say something like that?"
Quite offended that Deok In would categorize him as "someone with no connection at all", Jin Woo starts to come up with random complaints about his food. Ha, I love that Jin Woo is so childish at times.
Jin Hee haughtily tells Deok In that if she would have accepted the large sum of money that Gyeong Cheol tried to give her then she wouldn't have to put up with drunks. Calmly, Deok In tells Jin Hee that if she wants Gyeong Cheol so badly then instead of money, she should kneel and beg. Surprisingly, Jin Hee actually swallows her pride and kneels. Angered to see Jin Hee kneeling on the ground, Gyeong Cheol yells at Deok In and holds Jin Hee in his arm to comfort her.
After asking Deok In a few probing questions, Jin Woo rushes home to ask his parents to stop the whole mess since Deok In obviously doesn't want a divorce. Stunned to find out their daughter is not only dating a married man but one who wants to abandon the wife of his youth that has done so much for his family, Chairman Kang tells an unrepentant Gyeong Cheol that he can't even be considered human.
Furious after finding out that one of her boys was hurt because he stood up to help the disabled student against Yoon Seo, Deok In storms right into the school and was about to punch Yoon Seo when Jin Woo jumps in and takes the punch for him.
Gyeong Cheol wakes up to find a furious Jin Hee who screams that she can't take it anymore and runs right into the street barefooted. Holding a crying and screaming Jin Hee in his arm, Gyeong Cheol can only repeatedly promise that he will never go to Deok In's place again.
Look at that face! Isn't that the face of a man who is thinking "Crap! I am dating a crazy lady!"
Over drinks, Deok In confesses that she actually feels pity for her husband because no matter what Gyeong Cheol says, she believes he is still grieving over the death of their son as well. When Deok In asks Jin Woo if there is someone at home worrying about him, Jin Woo also takes the opportunity to make his own confession that his wife took her own life and left a note citing being too lonely as the reason. So that explains why his son hates him so much.
Deok In and Jin Woo both sense that their relationship has changed after their night of sharing their greatest hurt. In true Deok In fashion, as she walks with Jin Woo she blurts out "this feels awkward... are we going to be very embarrassed tomorrow?"
Jin Woo sheepishly asks "It's kinda late... should I walk you home?" Laughing, Deok In replies "Who is going to protect who?" Ha!
Watching Deok In laughing with one of her boys and his little brother, Jin Woo thinks to himself "Yes, keep laughing. I don't know why, but I feel happy when you are happy." Ha, the rest of us can tell you why.
Glaring at Jin Woo, Deok In asks him who and where is he hoping to cook a whole cart full of chicken. Putting on his best smile, Jin Woo talks Deok In into working late at the restaurant to make fry chicken for the fundraising. Eyeing the dipping flour, Jin Woo puts some flour on Deok In's face. Of course what follows is a full on flour fight between Jin Woo and Deok In. Did anyone thought "um... that's flour with raw chicken in it... "
Sneering at Deok In's words that Jin Hee is the daughter of a chaebol family, Mama Hwang decides enough is enough and packs her bag to move in to her son's apartment. Speechless to find his mom at his house, Gyeong Cheol tries to convince Mama Hwang to move back home, but Mama Hwang just kicks back and tells her son that she is preparing for a long stay. I love this spunky lady!
Completely flustered by Jin Woo's words, Deok In starts to leave but ends up stumbling to the ground in her haste. Rushing up to Deok In, Jin Woo nags her and wipes the dirt off her... which of course just makes Deok In even more flustered.
Oh, my! It's that love in the air?? I am loving the development between the two leads. In a way, both Deok In and Jin Woo are so new at this whole love thing despite the fact that both have been married before. I especially love the fact that Deok In is so straight forward at the oddest time and the supposedly stuffy Jin Woo (at least according to his family) is always so quick in putting on his "shameless side" whenever it comes to Deok In.
By the way, you guys probably have notice I have all but ignored the Kang family part of the story. I don't necessary feel the urgent need to fast forward all the parts with the fights between Ji Woo's sister-in-laws and their messy love line when I am watching the show but that particular part of the story really is the most boring part of the show to me thus sucking all my will to recap it.
Still I will just summarize the whole mess with a few bullet points:
- Hong Ran (the star) finds out her husband's big secret and is almost driven crazy by the thought that Jin Myeong (the husband) loves his sister-in-law so much that he would go so far as letting his brother die right in front of his eyes. (Jin Myeong has been tortured by self guilt all these years.)
- Threatening her husband with exposing his secret, Hong Ran successfully gets Jin Myeong to side with her and tells Eun Soo (Jin Woo's oldest brother's widow and Jin Myeong's crush) to move out with her son.
