Still rather shocked after seeing Hae Gang, Jin Eon's friend shows up suddenly and reminds the siblings that their respective other half has disappeared together. Of course Baek Seok is simply puzzled of why Hae Gang is not picking up her phone, but Seol Ri has guessed the truth and is stiff with worry over what Jin Eon could be doing with Hae Gang.
Clutching the car handle with fear when Hae Gang starts to follow the man's car at a high speed, Jin Eon insists that she tells him why they are following some random stranger. Her temper flaring just thinking about the guy, Hae Gang tells Jin Eon about how the guy had refused to pay his workers even when he had plenty of money to spend on his mistress. Getting more worked up as she talked, Hae Gang doesn't notice that Jin Eon's expression is stiffening as she rattles on "Why would he cheat on his wife who has only ever looked at him?! Moreover, can you believe he is going out with a girl 13 years younger than him!"
Alone with the scumbag who is trying to grab all of the money off the gambling table, Hae Gang decides to jump right in to gather up whatever she can for her poor client who is in desperate need of the money in order to save his daughter. Showing up just in time to protect Hae Gang from getting hit, Jin Eon gets a small wound on his head before Hae Gang could disable the scumbag with her stun gun.
Still carrying on her "good sister" act, Seol Ri rattles on about how Hae Gang and her brother has been living together thus making them all but married. Hardily able to contain his anger as he silently listens to Seol Ri, Jin Eon crushes the empty beer can in his hand.
Extremely bothered by the sight of Jin Eon with Hae Gang without knowing why, Baek Seok tells Hae Gang "Come to me. I don't care about your past, be it husband or children. Just come to me as you are."
However, now that Jin Eon is back, all bets are off. Barely suppressing his anger when President Choi shows up at the company to offer his support for his son's first day at work, Tae Seok knows that Jin Eon is still his biggest obstacle to taking over the company.
Corresponding with Yong Gi via e-mail, Kyu Seok tells Yong Gi to bring her daughter back to Korea in order for him to diagnose her illness in person. Of course Tae Seok chooses that very moment to walk in and sees Yong Gi's daughter's file, but it looks like Tae Seok hasn't connected the dots quite yet.
Later that night, Baek Seok hugs Hae Gang tightly "Only this way can I feel that while my heart is beating wildly, you heart is even beating."
I Have A Lover Episode 14
Wiping her own tears away, Mama Do scribbles "She met a good man and is living happily so please stop concerning yourself about her." Instead of being comforted, Jin Eon breaks down in sobs again.
Surprised to see that there is no record of Hae Gang ever going to China in her passport, Seol Ri wonders why President Choi would even have Hae Gang's passport.
Kyuk Seok sure seems to be connected to almost everyone in this show. Running into Hae Gang while he is checking on patients, Kyu Seok assumed that Hae Gang who introduces herself as Dok Go Yong Gi must be the same person as the woman who has been e-mailing him about her sick daughter. However, Kyu Seok soon realizes his mistake when he sees Hae Gang puzzled expression.
Jin Eon's stand off with Hae Gang is interrupted when Seol Ri all the sudden shows up and intimately puts her arm around Jin Eon's. Stunned to realize that Jin Eon is the cheating jerk that had an affair with Seol Ri, Hae Gang can barely contain her disgust at Jin Eon before she takes off. Ha, I love Jin Eon's face here. Four years ago he was able to flaunt his affair in front of Hae Gang so boldly but in front of this Hae Gang who doesn't owe him anything (at least she can't remember) Jin Eon is finally ashamed.
In a huff as she sits in Jin Eon's car to go meet Baek Seok for dinner, Hae Gang rolls her eye in disgust as she catches Jin Eon stealing glances at her.
Dismayed when he realized Seol Ri had brought them to a lobster restaurant, Jin Eon is uncharacteristically forceful when he grills the waitress about menu items that wouldn't have lobster in them. Realizing Hae Gang must have some sort of allergy, Seol Ri decides this is a perfect opportunity to figure out who Hae Gang really is.Seol Ri gets a phone call from China and immediately ducks out of the room. Even more puzzled when she is informed that there are no record of Hae Gang being in China, Seol Ri is unable to make sense of all the clues she has gathered so far.
With Seol Ri gone, Jin Eon immediately orders Hae Gang to not touch the lobster and just eat the rice balls he ordered for her. Taking Jin Eon's words as him being cheap, Hae Gang becomes even more determined to eat the lobster.
Noticing the anger on Hae Gang's face the second he walks in, Baek Seok teases Hae Gang until she breaks into a smile and eats the lobster happily.
The two men's conversation is interrupted when a very pale Hae Gang walks in and immediately collapse to the ground. Jumping up, Jin Eon yells "Hae Gang!" while Baek Seok yells "Yong Gi!"
Heaving a sigh, Jin Eon tells Seol Ri that he is sure Yong Gi is Hae Gang no matter what anyone says. Jin Eon goes on to explain that he only wants to know why Hae Gang is acting and living the way she is. In fact, Jin Eon hopes that Hae Gang is just doing everything on purpose. In an assuring tone Jin Eon tells Seol Ri "I just want to know the truth. I will never interfere those two. They look happy." Obviously not convinced at all by Jin Eon, Seol Ri insists that he is just confused. Seriously, why does everyone around Jin Eon seem to understand him better than he does himself.
Back at home after her emergency trip to the hospital, Hae Gang tells Baek Seok about Jin Eon mistaking her as his ex. Sneering that Jin Eon must be crazy, Baek Seok tells a surprised Hae Gang that Jin Eon's wife died shortly after their divorce.
Determined to get married even if she has to drag Jin Eon to the alter, Seol Ri tells Madam Choi to start planning the wedding.
Side note: It looks like Madam Choi is starting to suffer some form of dementia. I am interested to see how the writer is planning to use this in the story.
Baek Ji (Baek Seok's little sister) visits Jin Eon to get him to sign a piece of paper to formally conclude the whole mess of her stealing his wallet. Jin Eon chats with Baek Ji and is stunned when she tells him that Hae Gang has no memories of her past.
A big puzzle sliding into place, Jin Eon can hardily contain his emotion when he shows up at Hae Gang's house.
I was SO touched by the whole shoe lace tying scene until I remember this scene:
I guess Jin Eon didn't tie Seol Ri's shoe laces here but simply puts the shoes on her... still... I am ticked.
I am pretty torn about how I feel about the hero at this point. One can certainly tell that Hae Gang was/is the love of Jin Eon's life by this point of the story, but while I can understand how his daughter's death was the last straw that broke Jin Eon's heart I still struggle with the whole affair thing. Now, one can argue that if Jin Eon didn't resort to this drastic of measure neither his family nor Hae Gang herself would've let go... but then that meant he just outright used Seol Ri.
Sigh, so that's where I am right now. I melt every time Jin Ji Hee comes on the screen and just want to forgive the poor man and have him skip off into the sunset with the new kind Hae Gang. THEN, I remember how much our two leads have hurt each other and wonder maybe they should just move on. But not with the second leads because neither Seol Ri or Baek Seok's love is too healthy at this point.
