Hae Won's Story: Embarrassed in front of the whole office when Kang Min brazenly reminds her that she had promised to give him a month's salary to compensate for "touching his body" a short while ago when she accidentally fell on top of him, Hae Won has no choice but to keep her word.
Surprised when Mi Soon drives him to the court office to hand in their divorce papers, Man Ho is convinced at first that Mi Soon must be trying to scare him as a punishment. Knowing the perfect words to anger Man Ho, Mi Soon coldly declares "You can't leave Se Ri. Do you know why? Because both of you are shameless. Neither of you can be considered adults." Severely offended by Mi Soon's words but not angry enough to lose his head yet, Man Ho still refuses to go along with the divorce.
Determined to finish what she started no matter what, Mi Soon deliver the fatal blow and tells Man Ho that he has always lived under his father shadow, never being able to make his own decisions like a man. Finally pushed too far, a fuming Man Ho warns Mi Soon "You better not regret this!" and signs the divorce paper.
Side note: Hae Ryung had come home to tell her mother about her decision to get a divorce but ended up deciding that her poor mother had enough shocking news for one day.
While everyone in the Bong family is still harboring hope that Mi Soon would change her mind about the divorce, Mi Soon herself is more sure then ever and has even met with Se Ri to give the girl a sound beating...before handing Se Ri a letter containing all of the responsibilities she would have to take over as the Bong family's daughter-in-law.
Mi Soon was SO cool in this scene! I loved Se Ri's shocked face when Mi Soon threw her over her shoulder.
Before you get too angry with Daddy Bong, in a conversation between Daddy Bong and his wife later we find out that Daddy Bong believes Mi Soon will shine once she leaves but as parents who didn't raise their son right, they can't abandon the son that can't survive in the outside world. So it looks like Daddy Bong was trying to allow Mi Soon to go and spread her wings without having to worry about her daughters.
Her own heart breaking for Mi Soon, Mama Bong tells her "You have been shackled to the kitchen all these years. Go and live your life. I promise you I will protect your daughters and when you have settled down I will do everything I can to bring them back to you." Caught between her conviction that she will die if she doesn't get a divorce and her desperate desire to be with her daughters, Mi Soon sobs in Mama Bong's arms.
Busy ushering a happy Hae Ryung out of the tent, Ji Gun doesn't notice the meaningful glance the tarot reader casts towards him. Left alone in the tent, the tarot reader looks at cards in front of her and mutters "People who shouldn't meet each other... But it's a fate that can't be avoided anyway."
Laughing together as they slowly walks towards Hae Ryung's apartment, both of our leads are too immersed in their conversation to notice that they are being watched.
Obviously not pleased by Ji Gun's answer, Hyun Ki tries to stop him from leaving but ends up falling unconsciously into our hero's arms. Left with no choice but to haul Hyun Ki back home, Ji Gun is quite offended why Madam Jang says in dismay "What have you done to my distinguished son?!" Dumping Hyun Ki on his bed, Ji Gun turns towards Madam Jang and protests "Distinguished?! I have only known him for three month but had to carry him twice already. He is really scary when he is drunk." Ha!
Madam Jang hadn't bother to watch her mouth in front of a patient who she knew had mental problems. Unfortunately for Madam Jang, the patient thinks Hae Ryung is her mother and was angered to see her "mother" being verbally attacked so that's how we ended up having the hilarious scene of Madam Jang's hair being yanked by the patient. How crazy is that even in the midst of yelping in pain, Madam Jang remembers to keep her image in place and tells the staff to not be too harsh with the elderly patient.
ps. Unbeknownst to Hae Ryung, she only got her job because Hyun Ki's intervention.
Racing to Hae Ryung's side, Ji Gun's already fragile self control breaks down the moment he sees Hae Ryung's teary "Save me!" expression. Resigned to what he is about to do, Ji Gun warns Hae Ryung "I am going to do something crazy from this point on. So get mad later. I can't watch anymore."
Boy, I was a crying mess during the scene where Mi Soon was sobbing with Mama Bong. I was really glad that Mama Bong finally admitted that while she loves Mi Soon very much but if it was either of her daughters in Mi Soon's place there is no way she would be trying to convince them to stay in the marriage. As much as Mama Bong's admittance was a sad truth for all involved but I do think that both Mama and Daddy Bong are doing the best they could under the circumstance.
This might sound crazy but as I was watching Mi Soon singing with Mama Bong, I almost wanted to say that Mi Soon could be considered lucky. Now, no one would argue that Man Ho was a terrible husband, but it would've been so easy for Mi Soon's in-laws to take their son's side completely but instead they truly want the best for Mi Soon once they've accepted the fact that divorce was inevitable.
Mi Soon was super cool in this week's episodes but our heroine on the other hand was kinda...frustrating to watch. I knew the path to Hae Ryung's new life AND a new her wasn't going to be easy but it was still difficult to see our heroine taking two steps forward and one step back as she tries to shake off her old habit of cowering in front of her husband and mother-in-law. Poor Ji Gun though, he loses all rational thoughts every time Hae Ryung gives him one of those "Save Me!" face.
