Yoo Joon Sang ahjussi! We love you! ㅎㅎㅎ So the cast of ‘Unexpected You’ made an appearance on the talk show ‘Yeo Yoo Man Man’. MC Jo Yong Goo asked our favourite ahjussi what he felt had changed after the drama had finished. Yoo Joon Sang replied, that they weren’t even idols or anything and the popularity has astounded him and was quite surprising. He then went onto tell a little anecdote; his son’s friend visited their home and it just so happened that there was paper and pen lying around. The kid asked him for a sign, he was obviously very happy. It was almost awkward, as he offered that there was no need. His son begrudgingly asked him to just give one signature. Looks the like the popularity is no joke.

Anyone up for spoilers? Well I am hence the next pic, so look away if you’re not up to it.
Episode 54 began with the two Bang men trying to keep up with their respective wives as they brought out the weapons for World War III. It’s no kidding matter, when these women argue, they get dirty, thus why their husbands intervene and play Switzerland for the better part. This time however, each stick by their wives. Nice ploy. Chung Ae’s not stupid, she knows Jang Soo is standing up for her this time, for fear that she’ll leave him. She sure has taught him a good lesson.
In the Cha household, someone is very happy about her son being enlisted. I think this is the first time I’ve seen a mother so eager about her son leaving, that too for the army. You’d think he were going on vacation or he’d received a promotion. She sure is protective over her prince.
The men discreetly meet to discuss their wives.
Washington Hotel Coffee Shop 2pm. That’s what she heard and now Yi Sook can’t get it out of her head. It’s rumbling around, and she wants to do something about it. But how can she tell him not to go on the date?
The face of determination, ever, Cha Yoon Hee. She needs to make amends with her mother in law. So this is the first step she decides to take, regardless of how stupid she looks. She heads over to Chung Ae’s house, next door, after greeting g’ma, the two take a seat in the kitchen. Yoon Hee makes the most strangest but pragmatic offer-a contract. The clauses enable that, neither of them can involve a third party when they quarrel. And most importantly, that both must pay a complement about the other at least once a day to anyone.
The Uhm sisters! Soon Ae and Bo Ae pay a visit to the hospital as Soon Ae is having some trouble. It turns out that she’s been over eating, and this has caused a little change in her appetite. Soon Ae takes it in stride even though Bo Ae curses her to stop eating so much. Outside, Gwi Nam passes by and notices his aunts leaving. Soon Ae asks for a ride on his bike, Bo Ae argues that she needs exercise, as that’s exactly why they visited the hospital. Gwi Nam the ever wonderful nephew, agrees to give Soon Ae a lift. It’s just well…
I would love to see this couple together again! I hope some director has the common sense to cast them in another drama together, because they are one of my fave’s.
Jae Yong is on his arranged date, and he makes it quite clear to his date that he is apparently a huge douchebag, so as to get out of getting into further meetings with her. So he’s a bad drinker, his sisters are otherworldly and his folks are tough to deal with is the message he delivers, all done with an easy breezy air. Yi Sook unable to take it, decides to vent her frustration on a Whac-A-Mole. In the end, she can’t hold it in for another minute longer and she breaks into a sprint. Running towards, yep you guessed it- Washington Hotel Coffee shop.
And here’s a reality check for all those of us who think South Korea is the best place to be. I love the fact that this drama genuinely tries to show us what it’s like to live and be a South Korean citizen. It’s not all glamour and idols. People work hours that some MEDC’s can’t imagine, and poverty still exists. Jung Bae is fired from his job as the real estate agency isn’t making enough money to keep all it’s older workers.
We know it’s inevitable, she’s going to adopt Ji Hwan. Who wouldn’t? But Yoon Hee’s taking her time.
Halmeoni left the house saying she was going to visit a friend, looks like there was a change of plan.
At dinner, Gwi Nam’s mom and Su Ji unravel many of Gwi Nam’s past relationships, which embarrasses the daylights out of him.
Forget me not. Nope we haven’t.
Back to our main romance couple. Jae Yong is over the moon about Yi Sook’s earlier actions, and when he drops her off home, he decides he wants to really date. So he goes drama style and corners her. Naturally she offers to thrash his head in, but he comes up with a smarmy ‘my head’s harder than yours’.
Gwi Nam and Yoon Hee are casually shopping, but this isn’t your regular trip. Someone’s about to make a realization, or come close to making one.
I don’t think I can say how much I am going to miss this drama. I don’t think I’ve ever watched anything while it was airing that was that long. Four more episodes to recap!
