Sometimes we’re connected to other people in the strangest of ways. Gun Wook becomes Bo Nui’s guardian angel and neighbor, Soo Ho learns Bo Nui’s extremely intelligent and Bo Nui’s desperation for a tiger might just lead her to one or lead her away from the right one.
Top 10 Moments:
1. Bo Nui gets started on a plan to land a tiger:
After waking up from her night spent drinking, Bo Nui flashes back to the night before when she’d propositioned her senior to have sex with her for just one night. Or rather, she imagined that that’s how the conversation went. In reality, she chickens out and instead spent the night drinking, which was why she was as drunk as a skunk when she ran into Soo Ho the night before.
2. Gun Wook pays for Bo Nui’s rent
Although Bo Nui still believes her landlady is just giving her a break because she found out about her sister being in the hospital, we learn through Seol Hee and by actually seeing it happen, that Gun Wook handed over the rent money to the landlady. .
3. Genius II gets stolen
Turns out tweedledee and tweedledum didn’t just sabotage the demo, they also sold the game prototype to another gaming company in faraway Russia and that particular company already released it; big trouble because Genius II isn’t scheduled for release for another month. Of course the two thieves are long gone. So, Soo Ho does the only thing he can do, he tells his employees to let the game go as there’s nothing they can do about it. So, they should concentrate on developing a new game and get it ready on time for the already planned launch.
4. Coincidentally, Bo Nui’s a game designer
Or rather she and Dae Hae (the bald dude she kept looking for in the last episode) submitted a pitch for a game idea in a gaming competition and their game passed the preliminary stage. Soo Ho though hasn’t been able to come up with an alternate game and his friend, Ryang Ha pointed out the competition as an opportunity for them to find someone with a game idea they can use.
5. Bo Nui presents the game idea
Of course Dae Hae was nowhere to be found when it was time for their team to step on stage. For some reason (maybe to maintain her anonymity or to keep her luck going) Bo Nui wears a raccoon head mask and goes on stage to explain how their game idea, which involves playing the game from the players perspective (i.e using their eyes and body although the player remains out of the scope of the screen) works. It’s a pretty amazing idea and Soo Ho must think so too because it is only when listening to her presentation that he perks up and pays careful attention. Of course Soo Ho is absolutely gobsmacked when he finds out that the raccoon is Bo Nui who was the cleaning woman he bumped into at the casino, the bunny that attended to him when he fainted at the demo presentation and the drunk woman who kept asking for his age the night before.
6. Gun Wook realizes he’s not memorable
At least not to the first love who passed by him when she was hurrying on to work and didn’t even recognize him when he came right out to speak to her and ask her if she doesn’t remember him. She doesn’t even know of his tennis playing persona as she doesn’t follow the news. You’re going to have to work harder for her to recognize you Gun Wook. Sorry.
7. Bo Nui almost got a job with Zeze
She’d attended Zeze’s first open recruitment and had been given a bug to solve. A lot of people gave up and Soo Ho had been certain none of the people who came would figure it out, but Bo Nui did. By the time he and Ryang Ha got to the seat to meet the brainy person who solved the equation, Bo Nui had already left. Something tells me that was the time she received the call about her parents and her sister’s accident and why she thinks Zeze brings bad luck her way.
8. Gun Wook discovers that people change… or not
After interrupting Bo Nui’s prayer session for her sister where she’s promising to do anything to get a tiger, Gun Wook asks her for a hammer and gets the door slammed in his face. Just as he’s grumbling that she’s nothing like her childhood self, she opens the door to hand him the requested hammer. When he hurts himself putting up his pictures, she even bandages his finger. It a move reminiscent of how she would bandage his finger when they were kids and it seems to reaffirm his love for her. Bo Nui though isn’t interested as she remembers the shaman’s warning that she brings bad luck to those who come in contact with her. Gun Wook though insists on taking her out for a meal.
9. Bo Nui assumes Gun Wook’s born in the year of the tiger
Not like I believe him considering that Bo Nui kept turning down his offers to a meal and categorically told him that she’s not interested unless he’s born in the year of the tiger. This had him asking if she would go out if he was born in the year of the tiger and he keeps avoiding giving her a straight answer to her question. I wouldn’t have minded as much if she didn’t desperately believe that sleeping with a tiger would save her sister’s life. Thankfully, she asks him to bring his identification card with him when he comes to take her to dinner.
10. Soo Ho makes Bo Nui an offer and let’s not forget the kiss
He’s had Dal Nim try and contact Bo Nui so he can make her an offer for the game she’s developing, but Bo Nui hasn’t been reachable and neither has Dae Hae so he had no choice but to come to her apartment to talk. Except, he chose the time. Gun Wook’s on his way to Bo Nui’s apartment for their dinner date, so Bo Nui drags Soo Ho into her apartment so he wouldn’t ruin her chances of landing a tiger. We flash back to the night of Bo Nui’s drunken preposition and the surprise kiss she landed on Soo Ho after he’d followed her home to make sure she got home safe.
Character I wanted to bitch slap:
Strangely enough, no one. I would have said tweedledum and tweedledee because we’re still experiencing the after effects of the stupidity they displayed in the previous episode. But they didn’t physically show up so no bitch slapping in this episode.
Headache inducing moment:
Because I could see so many ways it could go wrong considering the fact that Bo Nui hadn’t prepared to give the presentation, not to mention the fact that I was worried that she might not even have the presentation on her. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case, but at the moment, without me knowing the end result, I was really worried for her.
This episode’s a rose sangria. It’s light and fruity and looks pretty and even tastes good. Except some might want it to have a bit more going for it and others… deal with the aftertaste of whether or not they like it (looking at you final kiss scene).
