Falling asleep after not getting any answers from Chul Soo about his mysterious background, Mi Soon is sadly unaware when Chul Soo took of his jacket to shield her from the sun.
Dang, I am totally on the boat for noona romance between Chul Soo and Mi Soon now!!
Surprised when Ji Gun suddenly runs towards her and drags her inside, Hae Ryung looks at him a bit doubtfully when he makes a quick excuse that he heard something outside and was afraid that it might be a ghost. Remembering why she followed him, Hae Ryung asks Ji Gun if he had accepted her husband's job offer because of her. Looking at Ji Gun doubtfully again when he cheerfully insists that he had always planned to accept the job anyway, Hae Ryung is soon distracted when Hyun Ki walks through the door.
His eyes following Hae Ryung as Hyun Ki takes her away, Ji Gun's expression turns sullen when Young Eun shows up and quietly says "That couple has never been happy since their child's death. Bong Hae Ryung feels that it was her fault that her son died so no matter what happens she just takes it like a fool, again then again. Why don't you rescue this woman? She is not someone that can free herself...whether the place is hell or a fiery furnace."
To be fair, Hyun Ki is actually trying very hard to break things off with Young Eun and has repeatedly told her to get lost...without much success obviously.
Going home in a taxi, Hae Ryung soon finds out that she was a much bigger fool than she ever imagined possible. Her eyes widening in disbelief as she watches her mother-in-law talks to Young Eun right outside of the house, her whole life seems like a big lie as she remembers Madam Jang complaining that very morning of the fact that Young Eun has not contacted her even once since she left the country.
Pushed to the breaking point especially with Ji Gun's words of "Of all of your reasons (to stay in the marriage) none of them have you in it." refusing to leave her head, Hae Ryung breaks down in tears as she pleads with her son's picture for his forgiveness and confesses that she wants so badly to laugh and stop pretending.
Sneering when she gets the rather unpleasant answer that not only did Hyun Ki knew the truth of Young Eun's so called "study abroad" but Young Eun had actually never stopped working for Madam Jang, Hae Ryung puts the divorce paper on the table and announces to Young Eun "From this moment on, Yoo Hyun Ki...take him."
Crying as she runs away from her mother's happy voice, Hae Ryung comes out to find her evil mother-in-law waiting for her. Not batting an eyelash when Hae Ryung confronts her about Young Eun working for her all this time, Madam Jang goes on the attack and accuses Hae Ryung of fabricating her husband's affair with the intention of getting a divorce so she can be free to to be with Ji Gun. Stunned by how low Madam Jang would go to save face, Hae Ryung numbly walks past Hyun Ki after muttering "You are all so scary."
Resorting to torturing Kang Min with an intense game of racquetball to stop himself from thinking about Hae Ryung, Ji Gun glares at Kang Min when he complains "You are killing me here. Do you have some trouble or...did you fall in love with someone you can't love?"
In constant battle with himself as Hae Ryung's unhappiness in her prison like marriage becomes more apparent to him each day, Ji Gun finds himself staring at a cup of ice that night and tells himself "Stop thinking! Stop thinking!" Ji Gun resolutely drowns the cup of ice with beer but even before he can take a sip the sight of Hae Ryung stumbling down the street soon has him rushing towards her.
Seemingly not surprised at all when Ji Gun has once again shown up when she is in crisis, Hae Ryung looks up with tears running down her face and pleads "Will you please help me." Catching Hae Ryung as her legs buckle under her, it is obvious all of Ji Gun's resolution to concerning Hae Ryung has just melted away into nothing.
Our poor hero. He really is head over heels for someone that he can't love. The writer has stacked up so much against Ji Gun that even if Hyun Ki is out of the picture things still doesn't look good for him.
I do wonder if by this point Hae Ryung knows about Ji Gun's feelings towards her. One would think after Hyun Ki tells her about all the things Ji Gun has done because of her she would know by now but once I consider our heroine's personality then I am not so sure.
Unless her life was dramatically different before her son died, then Hae Ryung would've been emotionally abused by Madam Jang for 13 years. Even under the best circumstance and we assume that Madam Jang was an angel before her grandson's death, then Hae Ryung has been living under the guilt her child's death AND the abuse of her Madam Jang for the last five years. Under the circumstance and coupled with the shock of her husband's affair I really can't see Hae Ryung having enough self confidence in herself to think someone like Ji Gun would fall in love with her.
In the picture above Madam Jang is once again criticizing Hae Ryung for her lack of taste and laments that even if the clothes are nice someone like Hae Ryung wouldn't do it justice. From the very beginning of the show it is obvious that Madam Jang likes to suggest at every chance how unworthy Hae Ryung is for her son and enjoys torturing her in general.
It was glorious to not have Se Ri's presence for the last two episodes but judging by how quickly Mi Soon's husband has reconnected with Se Ri I guess she must be coming back soon.
Oh, well. That one scene of Chul Soo hanging his jacket to shield Mi Soon from the sun pretty much had me sold on the Chul Soo - Mi Soon pairing...even if this noona romance still seems a bit far fetched.
To be honest I actually don't even need Mi Soon's character to find a new man as long as she learns that she deserve a lot more than her sorry excuse of a husband...but I guess nothing works better than a new hot romance to teach you that the old one was no good.
