Stunned to find out that Jin Woo is actually her husband's mistress's brother, Deok In becomes furious once she has time to digest the revelation. Standing hopelessly outside of Deok In's store, Jin Woo could only watch her through the store's window.
In a matter of fact voice, Deok In tells Jin Woo "As a person who considers herself as useless when it comes to being a woman, all the things you said to me, your warm voice and your gaze all imprint themselves deep in my heart. I thought ah, there is a man who would actually speak these kind of things to me. But now, what's this? You are Kang Jin Hee's brother? So now I have no option but believe that all the things you did and said were only out of pity for me." Finished with her speech, Deok In gets up to leave but is stopped by Jin Woo's voice.
Jin Woo "Does love stop just because we can't be together? Does my love have to stop just because we can't be together? While you have been so cold to me the last few days, my head has been completely blank, I have no energy and it's like the whole world has disappeared."
Seemingly unmoved by Jin Woo's words, Deok In walks away.
Deok In goes back to her store to find Gyeong Cheol waiting for her. Determined to get a divorce no matter what, Gyeong Cheol tells Deok In "I will worry about my own mother so you stop trying to put on that disgusting goody act. Please leave me now!" Feeling no remorse at all for his harsh words, Gyeong Cheol drives the nail home and tells Deok In "I have wasted twenty years of my youth on a woman like you. A woman such as you... even if you were to stand by the road completely naked, no one would want you." Devastated by her husband's words, Deok In slaps Gyeong Cheol and promise to give him the divorce he wants so much.
Taking his turn to make the long speech, Jin Woo goes on to tell Deok In how much happier he has become since meeting her and asks "At our age, is it really that important if we can be together or not? Can't we just rely on each other, and keep each other company?"
Not answering Jin Woo's question, Deok In leaves after making the excuse that she needs to get home.
Jin Woo remarks how amazing is that Deok In could turn out to be such a bright optimistic woman, and she replies "it is easy because if I let myself think of the unhappy things then it would never end."
In a matter of fact voice, Jin Woo replies "I will be right next to you. I will keep thinking of you. Even if I am not next to you, think of me when something sad happens. You will think "ah, that person is thinking of me, so I am not by myself."" For a character that is suppose to be very stingy with his words, Jin Woo is sure good at pouring out the sweet words.
Rushing to the hospital, Gyeong Cheol is stunned to read his mother's note but quickly proves that Mama Hwang really didn't understand how much of a jerk her son is when Gyeong Cheol tells Deok In "This doesn't change anything. We are still getting a divorce." Fortunately, Mama Hwang was rushed to the hospital in time and was saved.
Feeling the urgency to get a divorce, Gyeong Cheol goes back to his mother's house to find Deok In only to be shocked when he sees her with Jin Woo.
Remembering how Gyeong Cheol ignored her and sat beside Jin Hee's during their previous meeting, Deok In sits down beside Jin Woo. After some unpleasant exchanges, an incredulous Gyeong Cheol watches with disbelief when Deok In obediently leaves when Jin Woo gently tells her to let him speak privately with Gyeong Cheol. Not hiding his feelings once Deok In is gone, Jin Woo tells Gyeong Cheol that he does like Deok In and someone like him doesn't deserve a woman like Deok In.
Venting his anger at home, Gyeong Cheol doesn't bother to hide that he is furious over the fact that his wife might be having an affair. Not understanding why Deok In having an affair is actually a bad thing for them, a ludicrous idea all the sudden hits Jin Hee "Do you actually still love your wife and is only with me because I am from a chaebol family?"
Sneering, Gyeong Cheol replies "You call your family a chaebol family?" Seriously, I don't get this guy. He almost act like Jin Hee is the one that should be begging him to marry her. Well... I guess she is actually the one doing the begging.
Sitting together after a walk, Deok In hesitantly confesses to Jin Woo that as an orphan she has always wonder what her mother is like.
Wanting to fulfill Deok In's life long wish for her, Jin Woo decides to ask his estranged older brother to help him track down Deok In's birth mother. Unfortunately, I don't think Deok In's mother is really worth finding judging by the brief glimpse that the show has shown us.
Upset to find out that her brother actually likes a woman like Deok In and afraid that her family would choose to let Jin Woo marry Deok In instead of allowing her to marry Gyeong Cheol, Jin Hee shows up at Deok In's store again. For some reason only one person between Deok In or Gyeong Cheol can marry into the Hwang family. That wouldn't really be a problem in the west. VERY awkward family gathering for sure but not that big of a deal.
Seeing right past Jin Hee's facade, Deok In asks "Are you afraid that my husband might actually still love me and he is just going to you because of money?"
Deok In's words rips open Jin Hee's darkest fear and she raises her hand to slap Deok In ... just in time to be stopped by Jin Woo.
Holding his sister's hand firmly, Jin Woo tells her "From now on, don't treat her without respect. This person, this person is the one your brother loves." Melt... judging from Deok In's face she is feeling the same. Poor girl, this is probably the very first time a guy has stood up for her.
Boy, the writer sure makes Gyeong Cheol real easy to despise. I am guessing deep down he actually expects Deok In to just pine after him for the rest of her life after they got a divorce. It was great to watch Jin Hee's stunned face when Gyeong Cheol tells her "Through all this time with you, there is not one moment I didn't consider her to be my woman." I know love is blind but it is amazing that Jin Hee can't figure out that for a man who treats her so shabbily right now he is just going to turn into a bigger jerk if she actually marries him.
