Mi Soon's Story:
After searching night and day for Se Ri, Man Ho is finally tipped off by Mi Soon that Se Ri has landed herself at the police station. Accusing Man Ho of having never loved her, Se Ri tells Man Ho "Mi Soon unni is like your skin. You don't notice it when you have it but you can never live without it."
His heart settled after his meeting with with Se Ri, Man Ho informs his family that he is going to raise Se Ri's baby as his own.
Pleasantly surprised when two Chinese men suddenly show up to inform her that their company wants to sign a contract with her, Mi Soon is amazed as Chul Soo skillfully uses his impressive Chinese to communicate with the men.
Unbeknownst to Mi Soon, Chul Soo apparently knows the two men already and there are even some reference to Chul Soo's mysterious background as the men asks "Don't they know your real identity?"
Chul Soo was simply helping Mi Soon to get something out of her eyes but from Man Ho's position it looked like they were doing something much more.
Assured of his own superb cooking skill after his win, Daddy Bong gets a very unpleasant surprise that night when his drunken friend proudly tells him how they had made sure all of the judges chose his dish over Mi Soon's.
(It was a blind tasting but Daddy Bong's friends were tipped of by his supplier of the large amount of crab he has been buying to make his seafood stock. Knowing that whichever dish that had a strong crab taste must be their friend's, Daddy Bong's two friends had gone around telling all the judges how to discern the dish so they could be sure to vote for Daddy Bong.)
Hae Won's Story: Furious that her son would be thinking of marrying against her wishes, Madam Lee shows up at Hae Won's house and tries to intimidate Mama Bong with her hoity toity attitude. Not about to allow her baby girl to go through what Hae Ryung went through with yet another stuck up mother-in-law, a very grumpy Mama Bong punches poor Kang Min right in the gut and holds up her fist threateningly until Madam Lee quickly declares that Hae Won is a bright and lovely young woman.
Looking at his son incredulously, President Lee tries to order his men to restrain Kang Min but ends up letting the two love birds escape when he was distracted by the two cops Hae Won had called to the house.
Not about to give Kang Min's parents the chance to separate them again, Kang Min and Hae Won file for their marriage registration.
Afraid that his sister would bump into her first love (Min Seok) at the TV station, Sam Shik lies to Sam Sook that the TV station has decided to end their contract with her. Upset that her dream of becoming a star ended so abruptly, a drunken Sam Sook shows up at the TV station yelling to see the big boss. Too drunk to realize that her first love is standing right in front of her, the drunk Sam Sook mutters "I am imagining him again because I miss him so much!" Touched by Sam Sook's words, Min Seok pulls her into his arms and confesses that he has also missed her terribly.
Horrified the next morning as she remembers her encounter with Min Seok, a very embarrassed Sam Sook tries to hide herself when she sees Min Seok standing in front of her house. Chasing Sam Sook down, Min Seok declares that he is back and will not give up on her no matter what.
Flooded with foreboding after President Lee's threatening phone call to remind him about his secret, Ji Gun forces himself to act normal as Hae Ryung stands in front of him in a wedding dress and talk about their future together.
Smiling brightly at Ji Gun's reluctance to part from her, Hae Ryung doesn't try to question the sadness in Ji Gun's eyes but instead agrees to spend more time with him.
Not surprised to come home to see President Lee sitting at his house, Ji Gun puts his phone in front of his ex-father-in-law and challenges him to call Hae Ryung right then. Shrinking under Ji Gun's stare as Ji Gun admits "The thing I can't accept is that I ran away. I can't forgive the me who hid behind you because I didn't want to lose anything." President Lee backs down and keeps his mouth shut even when Madam Jang demands to know the secret he had hinted at her before.
We learn from Daddy Seo and President Lee's conversation that President Lee was actually the one that stopped Ji Gun and his dad from confessing the whole thing to Hae Ryung and Hyun Ki back when Seo Jin died. Afraid that it would make his hospital look bad if Ji Gun admitted his mistake, President Lee had sent Ji Gun overseas. Of course, Daddy Seo did bring up the point again that if JI Gun had followed the protocol and had Seo Jin do all the tests before he operated, then Seo Jin probably would've died from his injury anyway.
Stoic when a very late Hae Ryung finally shows up at their agreed meeting place, Ji Gun doesn't vent his frustration at Hae Ryung but instead admits his jealousy as he talks to his mother.
Gently wiping away Hae Ryung's tears, Ji Gun assures Hae Ryung that while his childish side wants nothing less than to demand that she only looks at him but her kindness is exactly why he fell in love with her.
Turning in surprise when Hae Ryung suddenly shows up and begins to list all of the wrongs he has committed to their son, Hyun Ki can only stutter a weak excuse once Hae Ryung throws the sleeping pills in front of him.
Breaking down in sobs as she watches Hyun Ki struggling as he tries to pick up the pills, Hae Ryung angrily cries "You jerk! How can you be like this until the very end! What should I do? Should we just die here together?!" Looking through her tears as Hyun Ki begs her to stop and admit that everything was his fault, Hae Ryung looks up at Hyun Ki through her tears and pleads "Please! Disappear from my sight! Even if you are going to die then die where I can't see."
Concerned the moment he arrives to see Hae Ryung back to her damsel in distress state, Ji Gun becomes angry the moment he spots Hyun Ki standing not too far away.
SO painful! We are eight episodes away from the end so THE secret is going to be out anytime now. I was actually really hoping that Ji Gun would back out from the wedding since it seems like a horrible thing to do to Hae Ryung...ESPECIALLY when he knows his secret is bound to get out sooner or later. Now, I could understand our hero's determination to bury his head in the sand if the secret really has a hope of remaining a secret but I don't think even Ji Gun can delude himself now that President Lee has used it to threaten him.
From the preview, it looks like Madam Jang will find out in the next week's episode so I guess that's probably how our heroine is going to find out. I had expected the BIG confrontation between our leads will dragged out for a good while but since the writer had left the heroine in the dark until this late in the game then maybe all the sobbing and crying won't drag on for that long?
