Swallowing her panic as she sits in the ambulance with the unconscious Baek Seok, Hae Gang notices the piece of paper he is holding in his hand. Carefully extracting the paper, Hae Gang is horrified when she reads the familiar note from her stalker that reads "I Will Kill You."
Despite the brave and happy face Baek Seok puts on in front of Hae Gang, the tears that start to fall once he is alone belies the fear in his heart.
Busy trying to comfort the sobbing Hae Gang, Jin Eon suddenly snaps to attention when Kyeong Woo yells that he never hit Baek Seok because at the time of the attack he was watching Jin Eon crying in his car.
Quickly realizing that there were too many clues they missed, Jin Eon and Hae Gang soon come to the conclusion that Baek Seok was the target all along. From there, it didn't take too much brain cell to figure out Tae Seok is the only one that would have it out for Baek Seok.
Furious when she realized that Tae Seok was the one behind Baek Seok's attack, Seol Ri has an ugly confrontation with Taek Seok and starts to list off all his dirty deeds. Too busy yelling at one another, neither Tae Seok nor Seol Ri notice Hae Gang listening in on their conversation until Hae Gang's voice startles them. Ignoring Seol Ri's protest, Hae Gang drags her off after telling Tae Seok that she will deal with him later.
I Have A Lover Episode 40 Recap
Pleasantly surprised when Jin Eon tells the police that Hae Gang is not going to press charges against his son, a shame faced Shil Il Sang thank Jin Eon repeatedly.
Storming into Tae Seok's office, Jin Eon throws a bat (the one that was used to attack Baek Seok) on Tae Seok's table and demands "You are so despicable that you are even framing a kid for your own purpose now?"
Picking up the bat, Tae Seok points it at Jin Eon and taunts him to back up all his accusations with some evidence. Yelling back, Jin Eon gleefully informs Tae Seok that he will find Baek Seok's real attacker soon and taunts back "So brother-in-law better send him away soon. Where are you going to send him this time?
As Jin Eon predicted, Tae Seok does call the attacker and Jin Eon waits with his eyes glued to the surveillance camera as the man parks his car at the company's parking garage. Unfortunately, the attacker ends up catching Hae Gang's attention and a fearless Hae Gang confronts the guy personally.
Speechless as he watches an equally angry Hae Gang yells back at Jin Eon for daring to throw himself at the attacker, Hyun Woo tells our two leads "Are you guys really divorced? Just get married! I will be your mc at the wedding again."
His expression contorting with the pain, Jin Eon finally tells Hae Gang that it's an end of their relationship. Crying as she stares at Jin Eon, Hae Gang nods as Jin Eon tells her "I love you, Do Hae Gang. This is my last confession in this life. In our next life, if we meet again then let us live happily. Where ever you are, I will find you right away. At that time, let's live together for a long, long time."
Sitting down with an expression mixed with dismay and relief, Hae Gang listens as a prosecutor tells her that she is the only suspect in a case they are investigating concerning Mido Pharmaceutical. (I believe that's Shil Il Sang's company)
Taking a calming breath, Hae Gang tells the prosecutor "If you are going to investigate me then call President Choi in as well...because I have a recording that proves President Choi's involvement."
As always, Yong Gi and Kyu Seok gives us the much needed cute among the melo:
Reluctantly agreeing to learn English in preparation of moving overseas for Woo Joo's treatment, Yong Gi obediently repeats after an English movie. Melt! They are so cute together!
Awe, Kyu Seok is so cute. From Kyu Seok's conversation with his brother, we find out that he probably approached Joo Woo and Yong Gi at first because he felt badly for what Tae Seok did to Yong Gi's husband but he obviously have developed real attachment to them since then.
One of my favorite scenes this week was the conversation between Baek Seok and Jin Eon. It seems hilarious but touching at the same time that Baek Seok and Jin Eon has gone from competitors to great friends. While it would obviously be nice if Jin Eon gets his happy ending with Hae Gang, but I am strangely satisfied with the thought if the three of them just end up being drinking buddies together...
... that is until I see the longing expression on both of our leads' faces.
