Yes I know I’m late. The shows already aired 50 episodes and here I am attempting to do recaps. Since I decided to start blogging a little late, all things were naturally going to fall in the same succession. So why bother at all since, there isn’t much to recap?…I freaking adore this drama! That’s why ㅋㅋㅋ.
Here goes nothing.
The episode begins with Yoon Hee (Kim Nam Joo) weeping at the loss of her miscarriage. She feels guilty towards her unborn child, telling Gwi Nam (Yoo Joon Sang) how she didn’t even give the child a nickname. Insinuating that she never made any time for the child, and maybe the child knew of this from the womb and decided not to come to the world. Gwi Nam also shows regret, as he holds his wife and tells her that maybe he wasn’t ready to be a good father either, and that’s why it wasn’t meant to be.
The scene then moves on to the drama’s most popular couple that takes the audience away from the tears that they’ve just encountered.
Yi Sook after having told Jae Yong that they don’t belong together because of their social differences in the previous episodes, begins rethinking her emotions and her choice to not date Jae Yong, and so K-drama style, she abruptly gets off the bus with a jog that gradually builds up to a run chasing after her feelings for him.
As she reaches her work place, Jae Yong is already there, calling his friend asking to meet up for a drink ’cause he feels like shit after being dumped by Yi Sook. Just as he does so, he notices Yi Sook has turned up again. Hanging up, before he can reach for her, he receives a call, from none other than Yi Sook herself.
She rambles on the phone, unable to gather her emotions. He stands behind her, confused, as she says, ‘I’m willing to give try…’. Jae Yong in his naturally clueless voice, asks ‘uh, okay, willing to do what?’ She clarifies and we see that shit eating grin all over his face. He’s obviously ecstatic, and he wastes no time in dating her, making her even pinky promise.
Switch back to the sombre mood of the household, Yi Sook finally finds out from Il Sook that Yoon Hee’s had a miscarriage. The three sisters, saddened over the news, all agree that they want to help Yoon Hee in some way. Even Mal Sook, who goes ahead and questions whether it was her fault, for the travesty that struck. Looks like there is a sane part to her :p
Yang Shil while having to share rooms with Halmeoni, ends spilling more tears as she realises that Halmeoni doesn’t actually hate her, but considers her, her own daughter. All the more reason as to why she’s so hurt by her actions. Halmeoni offers to move away with her, so she can live with a burden less heart.
We come back to the sweet love line that has Korea rolling for more, and Chun Jae Yong is there sharp and early to pick Yi Sook up for work. She complains, it’s too much hassle for you, why go back and forth. He lightly tips her chin and says it’s the ways of dating. Like I said charmer!
So after, a few cute scenes with Yi Sook and Jae Yong, who fakes nonchalant at seeing his girlfriend in a dress only to have a spazz attack worthy of an applaud from even a fan girl when she’s not around. The rest of the family, prepare an event for Yoon Hee.
Knowing Yoon Hee and her psychic abilities, she knows something is up. As Il Sook takes her up to the rooftop, she can’t hold back, as she realises, she has so much love from the people she initially didn’t want. I think this episode really summed up the word family quite neatly, and so the episode ends with Yoo Joon Sang singing her a song, with Yoon Bin accompanied on the piano.
p.s. Trivia: For any one who is as clumsy as me and hasn’t figured out the pun on Gwi Nam’s name yet, 방귀 (Bang Gwi) just so happens to also mean ‘fart’ in standard Korean.
