I Have A Lover Episode 25-26: HERE
Backtracking a bit from where we ended last week, so these happened before Young Gi finds Hae Gang at the door.
Already surprised to find Kyu Seok at her house, Yong Gi is stunned when Kyu Seok all but orders her to trust him and to start living with him. Giving up when Kyu Seok walks out of the house with Woo Joo in his arms, Yong Gi obediently starts packing.
Fortunately, while Hae Gang is being traumatized Jin Eon is starting to find clues that Tae Seok had actually made up the document in order to frame Hae Gang for his evil deeds. Puzzled why Jin Eon would want to talk out on the freezing balcony, Hyun Woo is astounded when Jin Eon explains that Tae Seok had put a listening bug in the office and his previous declaration that he was going to cover up everything for Hae Gang's sake was simply a way to fool Tae Seok.
After texting Hae Gang "It's my birthday. Wish me happy birthday", Jin Eon yells silently for Hae Gang to turn around even as she keeps walking away.
His face breaking out in a happy smile when Hae Gang suddenly comes walking back towards him and hands him a birthday gift, Jin Eon teases her "I told you to wish me a happy birthday but I didn't say it was today."
Grabbing Hae Gang's hand in earnest, Jin Eon assures her that the document she saw was something Tae Seok made up. Almost frantic when Hae Gang keeps wondering what kind of horrible deeds she must've committed in the past, Jin Eon pleads with Hae Gang to not make any assumptions until her memories come back.
Hardily believing her eyes when her once picky daughter looks completely at home as she cleans and cooks for the many kids in Daddy Baek's house, Mama Do explodes in anger when a clueless Baek Seok walking in.
Tearing up as she watches her own mother attacking Baek Seok, Hae Gang yells back at Mama Do "Stop it! I don't know how you see my life right now, but I am happy. Baek Seok is the one that saved me. He gave me these precious four years. If it wasn't for these four years I don't know how I would survive right now."
I Have A Lover Episode 28
Walking into Yong Gi's room to lay down a sleeping Woo Joo, Kyu Seok almost ignored the sobbing Yong Gi but ends up walking back and silently wiping away her tears.
Convinced that she couldn't possibly keep staying at Mama Do's house now that she knows the truth, Yong Gi carries her sleeping daughter on her back and tries to sneak out in the middle of the night. Jumping with surprise when Kyu Seok all the sudden shows up, Yong Gi tells him not to stop her from leaving. Dryly replying that he has no such intentions, Kyu Seok simply takes the sleeping Woo Joo and assures a speechless Yong Gi that while she is welcome to leave, his patient has to stay with him.
With his eyes still closed, Kyu Seok replies "Is that so. That sure is a hard to accept fact." At first nodding her agreement to hear Kyu Seok's understanding words, Yong Gi is soon huffy when Kyu Seok continues "Just going by appearance Miss Yong Gi seems more like the older sister. It looks like Miss Young Gi is aging a bit fast." Ha! I LOVE this guy.
Thanks to the annoying Seol Li who outright ignored Jin Eon's warning to not create trouble, Shil Il Sang, the man who accidentally killed Eun Sol is informed the very second he gets out of jail of the fact Hae Gang has lost her memory and is living free from the pain of her past.
Waiting in front of Baek Seok's office, Shil Il Sang is stunned when Hae Gang not only treats him like a total stranger but gives him a lecture about not throwing cigarette butts on the ground.
Moved to tears when Baek Seok finally relents at her insistence that she wants to keep going even if in the end she will be turning herself to the law, Hae Gang cries as Baek Seok tells her "Leave it to me. Let me catch you. So don't try to catch yourself."
Excitedly showing up at Hae Gang's office with a desk plaque, Jin Eon leaves in anger when he sees Hae Gang has already received a similar plaque from Baek Seok and is currently crying in another man's arms.
Turning to get back in the car, Jin Eon is stunned when Hae Gang quietly mutters "I love you." Puzzled by Jin Eon's dazed and disbelieving expression, Hae Gang is surprised when Jin Eon tells her that she has never once said those three words to him even when they were married. Sighing, Hae Gang asks "Why did you even live with me?" With tears in his eyes, Jin Eon replies "To hear those words. To hear you tell me that you love me." Looking deep into Jin Eon's eyes as she cups his face with her hands, Hae Gang says "I love you."
Panicking when Hae Gang passes out from her grief, Shil Il Sang runs away leaving Hae Gang unconscious on the floor.
Ah, poor Baek Seok. If there was ever a time I was tempted to be on Baek Seok's ship than episode 28 was it when he screams that as long as Hae Gang was okay he was willing to lose even his soul. How can you not fall for a guy like that?!
I was also cheering for Baek Seok when he chided Hae Gang for her fear that once she recovers her memory she would somehow wipe away her last four years and turn back into a monster. Giving Hae Gang the speech she sorely needed, Baek Seok tells her that she just need to make sure she remain true to her current self.
Frustrated that Jin Eon not only does not accept her assertion that he would leave Hae Gang once she turns back to her former self but his insistence that pre-amnesia Hae Gang and the post-amnesia Hae Gang is the same woman he loves, Seol Ri tearfully asks "Why did you treat me the way you did then? Why the shoes? Why the umbrella? Why worry about me?"
Stabbing Seol Ri to the heart, Jin Eon answers her question with "You were bright, confidant, a fighter ...just like Hae Gang was. You were pitiful because you didn't care about anything else but only had eyes for me... just like how I was toward Hae Gang." So essentially, since Jin Eon felt like he couldn't love Hae Gang at that point anymore he was attracted to Seol Ri because she reminded him of the good parts of himself and Hae Gang. Sigh... this still doesn't excuse the affair but at least it explains why in heaven someone so deeply in love with Hae Gang such as Jin Eon could get himself in such a mess.
ps. Poor poor Baek Seok. Once upon a time I was hoping maybe Baek Seok could be paired up with Yong Gi, but I like our doctor too much now.
