Stubbornly insisting on her decision to raise Se Ri's baby as her own despite her in-law's worry that she would live to regret it, Mi Soon finally convinces Daddy Bong to part with some of his savings to Se Ri so she could start a new life. Freely admitting her fear of losing her family to a very angry Se Ri, Mi Soon calmly asks her "Think about what is best for your baby."
On Hae Won's front, the poor girl finally figures out that she is pregnant and is completely flustered by this very unwelcoming news.
Strolling with Hae Ryung after he has successfully cheered her up, Ji Gun's own mind is no where as peaceful as Hae Ryung's. Looking at Hae Ryung's reflection, Ji Gun can't help but thinks back to the question his ex-brother-in-law asked him "Losing sleeping because you are worried about her? Missing her even if she is right in front of you? Does your heart beat wildly when she gets close?" Unable to deny the truth anymore as he looks at Hae Ryung's smiling face walking towards him, Ji Gun answers within himself "Yes, I like ...that woman."
Unable to suppress her excitement anymore about her pregnancy dream, Mama Bong is overjoyed when she discovers that Hae Ryung's period is late. Not noticing her daughter's mixed expression at the prospect of being pregnant, Mama Bong drags Hae Ryung off to the hospital to confirm the good news.
Not wanting to break down in front of Hae Ryung, Mama Bong had made a quick excuse to part ways from her and soon finds herself sobbing uncontrollably on the bus as she thinks about the pain her precious daughter is dealing with.
Putting on a different mask the moment Hyun Ki walks in the door, Mama Bong complains to her son about the audacity of Mama Bong to plead for her barren daughter. Not moved by Madam Jang's "sickness" that is apparently brought on by the hospital rumors and her repeated suggestion of divorce, Hyun Ki firmly tells her mother that he has no intention of separating from Hae Ryung.
Shedding the image of a blissful happy couple the moment they leave the Bong household, Hae Ryung has an honest talk with Hyun Ki and admits "You are right. I can't walk away when I think about the disappointment it would bring to my mom if I get a divorce. I also can't ignore the mother-in-law who hid the truth of my condition out of consideration for my feelings. However, in all of my reasons to go back...you are not in it. So if you can accept that then I will go back with you."
We are not shown Hyun Ki's answer but obviously he doesn't really care why Hae Ryung stays in the marriage as long as she does end up staying so back to that suffocating house Hae Ryung goes. It does drive me crazy thought that Hae Ryung believes her mother-in-law has any love or concern for her well being.
Pretending to accept Ji Gun's protest that no such woman exists, Daddy Seo asks "Is her temper really that bad?" Huffy, Ji Gun replies without thinking "No! She is the nicest person!" Wincing the moment he sees Daddy Seo's "Gotcha" smile, Ji Gun hangs his head in defeat as his father walks away triumphantly.
Despite being glad that he can use Hae Ryung's welfare to force Ji Gun into accepting his company's job offer, Hyun Ki finds himself somewhat bothered by the knowledge that his own wife is another man's weak spot. Grumpy as he goes along with Hyun Ki's plan to show off their "friendliness" with one another during a party to dispel the hospital rumor, Ji Gun complains "People are going to think I am in a relationship with you. Let's keep our distance okay!"
Turning his head away in dismay from the kissing couple, Ji Gun is horrified to see that Hae Ryung has also walked out of the party in search for him. Racing towards Hae Ryung, Ji Gun spins a very surprised Hae Ryung around so she would not see her own husband kissing another woman.
Hae Ryung was searching for Ji Gun because she has a suspicion that he had accepted the job to free her from the affair rumor.
Dang! I really wanted Hae Ryung to see her husband with Young Eun together!! But I guess we need to drag this out for another 38 episodes so the plot can't move that fast.
I do find it interesting that Young Eun seems to have given up on getting back together with Hyun Ki since as he told her "You know doing all this will just push me further from you!" Instead, as Young Eun bitterly explained "If I can't have you, then at the very least I want to make sure your wife doesn't get you either." Sigh...This show really is about the enigma of why women (such as Mi Soon, Se Ri, and Young Eun) hold onto jerks
Our poor hero's path in love sure is pretty stacked up against him. There are just too many emotional baggage in front them. As much as Ji Gun's heart has forced him to admit that he has fallen in love with Hae Ryung but he certainly seems resigned that his love will remain a secret one. With Seo Jin's (Heroine's son) death still hovering over him, I am not sure Ji Gun would feel like he would have the right to be loved by Hae Ryung even if she gets a divorce.
Messy romance aside though, there is one thing I really like about this show that I don't have the time to showcase in the recap: The familial love in the Bong family.
I also love the fun such as when Daddy Bong have a group facial mask party with his two siblings.
Or when Hae Ryung's aunt pretends to be sick so she and Mi Soon can get Mama Bong out of trouble with Daddy Bong.
