Mi Soon's Story:
Racing all the way to stop Mi Soon from putting up her restaurant for lease, Chul Soo vehemently refuses to listen to Mi Soon's protest that since she lost her bet with Daddy Bong then she needs to suffer the consequences.
Seething with jealousy as he watches Mi Soon and Chul Soo arguing with one another, Man Ho finally jumps out to tell Mi Soon that Daddy Bong only won because his friends cheated.
With that little crisis averted, Mi Soon's life is starting to be smooth sailing again...until Man Ho starts to show up constantly...much to Chul Soo's frustration.
Dismayed to realize Mi Soon was within earshot of his phone conversation, Chul Soo tries to carry on as normal but his expression pales when Mi Soon says "Wanting to make sure I have some common ground with my kids I put a lot of work on learning English. What is your real name Chul Soo? No, actually, who are you?"
Stunned to wake up and find Kang Min at their house, Daddy and Mama Bong stare at their daughter in disbelief when they are informed of the marriage. Despite being surprised by the marriage, Hae Won's parents nonetheless quickly accept it since their daughter is after all pregnant with Kang Min's baby.
Not so accepting as the Bong parents, Madam Lee storms into Hae Won's work yelling her son's name angrily when she finds out that Kang Min had announced his marriage to the press. Swallowing her angry words once she realizes that a reporter is standing right there, Madam Lee quickly paste on a smile to act like the world's greatest mother-in-law to Hae Won.
Flustered by Hyun Ki's tearful pleading to save his life, a very conflicted Ji Gun mutters "I can't..." then quickly drives away with Hae Ryung.
Her mood lifted considerably, Hae Ryung softly admits to Ji Gun "To someone who is dying, I had told him to go and die somewhere I can't see. Am I not despicable?" Once again assured when Ji Gun expresses his gratitude to have her as she is, Hae Ryung asks "After we get married...can we take Young Woo and stay at America for couple years?" Looking down guiltily the moment the words are out of her mouth, Hae Ryung mutters "I guess we can't."
Quickly replying "Yes, let's do. No matter where, let's go." Ji Gun pulls Hae Ryung to him and kisses her.
Presenting themselves as a newly wed in front of Hae Ryung's family, the Bong family gets another shock after the bomb Hae Won dropped just that morning. Knowing full well that his daughter needs all the support she can get to deal with Hyun Ki's impending death, Daddy Bong surprises everyone by expressing his approval of our leads' quick marriage. Clueless of Hyun Ki's illness, Mama Bong is not so happy as her husband to have her daughter married off so without fanfare and was only somewhat appeased after Ji Gun personally apologizes to her.
Sneering bitterly when she sees the furious Hae Ryung coming to Ji Gun's defense, Madam Jung tells her cryptically "If you know what Seo Ji Gun did to our family then it's going to be one spectacular show." Despite being puzzled by Madam Jang's words, Hae Ryung nonetheless allows herself to be pulled away.
The big moment finally arrives and our heroine finds out the truth by accident when she overhears Ji Gun's nurses gossiping about Madam Jang's accusation that Ji Gun killed her grandson.
Hae Ryung shows up at Hyun Ki's house to confront Madam Jang but we are not shown what happened between them.
Staring at the smiling pictures of Hae Ryung, Ji Gun mutters "I don't have the courage to tell her. How can I tell her? How do I dare? What can I say? No, I won't say it."
Taking Ji Gun's face and forcing him to look up, Hae Ryung's heart sinks as she looks into Ji Gun's tear filled eyes. Dropping her hands like they've been burned as Ji Gun whispers "I am sorry, I am sorry." Hae Ryung screams in horror. Yelling as she vents her anger on her wedding pictures, Hae Ryung wipes all of the emotions from her face and declares "I have never met you and never loved you."
Stumbling into her house as the past memories flooded her mind to confirm Ji Gun had known all along she was Seo Jin's mother, Hae Ryung cries bitterly as she holds her son's picture and mutters "I am sorry, I am sorry Seo Jin."
Whew! TWO big secrets out this week. I guess Chul Soo's secret is not quite out yet but I am really curious to hear what he will say to Mi Soon in the next episode. My personal guess is that he is a mysterious food critic or... food writer perhaps?? Yaah... I got nothing.
This is going to sound kinda mean, but Hae Ryung's reaction actually was better then I expected. Granted, she is still in shock so she might have more choice words for Ji Gun once her anger has time to build.
I had hoped that Hyun Ki might speak up for Ji Gun but I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly he explained the whole thing to Hae Ryung and really gained quite a bit of respect for his willingness to tell the truth even though it would've been so easy to use this perfect opportunity to separate our two leads for good.
Based on the previews it looks like Hae Ryung is going to go back to Hyun Ki's house soon. While I personally don't want our heroine to have anything to do with Hyun Ki's household anymore I am hoping whatever happens will help Hae Ryung to learn to look past her own pain. I think only when Hae Ryung can learn to grief properly with Hyun Ki can she learn to see past her own sorrow and see the pain Ji Gun has been been carrying.
Speaking of our hero... as much as I feel bad for the guy, he does need to suffer a bit for burying his head in the sand and letting things get so out of hand with Hae Ryung. It really was a very cowardly thing for Ji Gun to marry Hae Ryung without telling her the truth. I understand that the guy was madly in love but still, it was pretty selfish of him to go through with the marriage when it is obvious that Hae Ryung is going to find out the truth VERY soon.
My FAVORITE scene this week! Fed up with Daddy Bong's cheapskate personality, Mama Bong packs her bags to leave home. Stunned by how much his wife is "over reacting", Daddy Bong yells Mama Bong's name and tells her to not come back if she steps out the door. Pushed over the edge by Daddy Bong's words, Mama Bong screams her husband's name as she delivers a much practiced boxing punch to his face. SO AWESOME!
