Shin Ae's Story:
At first vowing to expose Shin Ae's lie to everyone, Mama Jo quickly changes her mind once Shin Ae informs her that Mi Poong is Grandfather Kim's real grand-daughter and reminds her once again that without her marriage to Hee Dong, Mama Jo's family has no connection to Grandfather Kim at all. Quite pleased to see Mama Jo and Shin Ae's new alliance, Shin Ae's "aunt" promptly uses her knowledge as a mean to extort money from them.
Terrified that their lie would be exposed, Mama Jo and Shin Ae are resigned to do as Shin Ae's aunt demanded...that is until the drama god smiles upon them and Shin Ae's aunt is killed in a car accident while trying to run away from a bunch of thugs.
Careful to make sure her daughter never calls her mother in front of anyone, Shin Ae hopes to keep the little girl's identity hidden but without her knowledge Hee Dong has gotten to know her daughter by chance.
Our two leads are married!
Ready to prove to Mi Poong how difficult of a mother-in-law she could be, Mama Lee is determined to make Mi Poong do all the household chores on top of working a full time job. Displeased when she sees Mi Poong making breakfast by herself in the morning, Grandmother Lee declares that she is not going to stop Mama Lee from placing demands on Mi Poong but since Mi Poong is not the only daughter-in-law in the household then that means Hee Ra has to help out as well. Used to living the life style of a princess even as the Lee family's daughter-in-law, Hee Ra soon clashes with Mi Poong when our heroine tries to get her to do her share of household chores.
Dismayed when he comes home to find out that Mama Lee had invited Ha Yeon to the house, Jang Go rushes to go comfort Mi Poong but is reassured when his little wife shows even more determination to win his mom over.
So it looks like we are currently at the point of the plot where more and more baddies find out the "TRUTH" while the good side won't figure things out for a while. I was completely surprised that they killed off Shin Ae's aunt so quickly, I really thought she would be kept around to torture Shin Ae or even be the one that expose the truth later.
In this week's episode Grandmother Jo is one of the "baddie" that found out Shin Ae and Mama Jo's lie but at least Grandmother Jo was decent enough to be horrified at her own daughter's lie and was only pacified when Mama Jo assures her that the real grand-daughter doesn't exist. Now, I am not too convinced that Grandmother Jo would not have eventually toss her decency aside once she is reminded of the money but at least she did raise some moral issue concerning what her daughter is doing.
As for Mama Jo, up to this point of last week's epsiode I had thought she was a bit greedy and shallow but not really bad. However, I am afraid by being in cahoots with Shin Ae and cruelly deceiving Grandfather Kim she has gone too far. Both Daddy Jo and Hee Dong are such pure sort of people I don't see them forgiving either Shin Ae or Mama Jo once they find out the extend of their lies. Poor Hee Dong, I am starting to feel really bad for him.
Having not seen Mama Kim since she quit her job, Daddy Jo promptly jumps to Mama Kim's defense when he notices a man trying to bother the restaurant's server and realizes that the distressed server is none other than Mama Kim. Declaring himself to be Mama Kim's husband to get rid of the sleazebag customer, Daddy Jo waits outside the restaurant until Mama Kim gets off work. Mildly surprised to see Daddy Jo, Mama Kim starts to ask why Daddy Jo wanted to meet with her when suddenly a motorcycle speeds past them and Daddy Jo instinctively wraps his arms around Mama Kim to protect her.
Always bothered by how his wife had caused Mama Kim to quit her job, Daddy Jo asks Mama Kim to come back to work. Moved by Daddy Jo's sincerity, Mama Kim agrees to go back to her old job.
