Sometimes, the very things we seek are hidden right underneath our nose. Dan Tae still doesn’t know how to tell a woman that he likes her. Gong Shim is still her adorable self. Joon Soo keeps encountering Gong Mi who still can’t tell the truth and we get a glimpse of Joon Pyo’s kidnapper.
Top 10 Moments:
- Dan Tae’s a faking faker
The morning after his fall, when Gong Shim sees him and proceeds to feel remorseful for being the curse of his injuries the previous night, Dan Tae uses the opportunity to milk her guilt for all its worth, making her admit that she shouldn’t stay close to other men as it’s because of them that she was having a fight with Dan Tae the night before; thus leading to his fall. He’s all somber until he turns around to smile behind her back, then pops his hand out of the sling the minute he’s in his apartment. Rofl.
2. Dan Tae investigates with Gong Shim
Still using the pretense that he’s injured (she’s so going to skin you alive when she finds out the truth), Dan Tae has Gong Shim follow him on his investigation in finding out what happened to Joon Pyo. They do the whole nine yards, from taking pictures at the drop off point that never happened (which had Dan Tae posing for cute selcas. Lol), to them timing how long it would have taken for Joon Pyo to be kidnapped. They even get to interview a witness to the accident who said he heard Joon Pyo’s mother say the words “Joon Pyo” and “Butterfly” before she died.
3. Dan Tae’s busted
Whilst still playing the role of an invalid, Dan Tae sees a little boy leave his roadside game with one life left and takes off his sling to finish off the game (I know. Stupid him). He figures he would be done before Gong Shim can make her reappearance from the ice-cream cart he’d had her buy ice-cream from. But he gets distracted till Gong Shim catches him in the act: playing a video game without his sling on. Of course Gong Shim executes her signature move and reaches for his hair. Bwahahaha.
4. Joon Soo and Dan Tae have a pissing contest
After showing up at Joon Soo’s workplace to ask if he can use Joon Soo’s staff ID to get free cafeteria food, Joon Soo and Dan Tae run into Gong Shim on the line to get her meal. Thus their lunch for two, becomes lunch for three, with Dan Tae being the third wheel as Gong Shim spends the time ignoring him (she’s still pissed about his lying streak) and paying attention to Joon Soo which has Dan Tae jealous. When jealous Dan Tae offers to buy them coffee and Joon Soo insists on getting it, they let a basketball game decide who would do the buying (I support Gong Shim’s theory. They both just want to get heatstroke. Pfft). Gong Shim spends the game cheering Joon Soo on, whilst Dan Tae stews in jealousy (seriously, he’s like a little kid :lol:. They end up stopping the game when a little kid tells them too.
5. Dan Tae gets kidnapped… or not
On their way back, with their cold coffee in hand, a black van pulls up and burly men come out of it to hustle Dan Tae into the van and drive off. Joon Soo and Gong Shim, worried, immediately head to the nearest policeman who takes his time taking down their information until Dan Tae rides back in the van, unharmed. Turns out it was an experiment he conducted to figure out exactly how Joon Pyo’s kidnapping went down and to come to the conclusion that witnesses to an abduction usually go about describing the abductor and not the abductee, meaning the butterfly was in relation to the person who nabbed Joon Pyo and not Joon Pyo’s bowtie like the police had assumed twenty four years prior. It’s a brilliant deduction, except the two people who had been worried about his safety had left in a huff whilst he was soliloquizing 😆
6. Joon Soo falls unconscious in a burning kitchen
With his plan to cook at his restaurant opening, Joon Soo spends the night practicing cooking dish he wants to serve on that day, only to be hit with a dizzying spell as he’s flambeing a meal. As he collapses and accidentally knocks down a bottle of vodka, the food catches fire as does the kitchen counter, whilst Joon Soo’s unconscious. At that exact time, Gong Shim offers the remaining cookie she’d baked to Dan Tae who turns it down when he realizes she put eggs in it. When she scoffs, he points out that Joon Soo’s deadly allergic as well, leaving Gong Shim to panic about Joon Soo being hurt.
7. Gong Mi to the rescue
After realizing that Joon Soo’s life really is in danger, Gong Shim searches for the car key so she can make it in time to the restaurant to keep him from eating the cookies, especially since she’d been trying his number but he’s not picking up. When she learns that Gong Mi’s with the car, and even better, she’s close to the restaurant, she calls her sister and hurries her along to go rescue Joon Soo.
8. And ends it by being a lying rat as always
Gong Shim calls Gong Mi after the rescue ,mission to ask how it all went. Gong Mi straight up lies that she didn’t see Joon Soo at the restaurant, even though she went there. Just when I think Gong Mi can’t sink any lower, she goes ahead and does just that. Girl, I hope you know that should you want to marry Joon Soo, he will one day be introduced to your sister. You can’t keep her hidden forever.
9. Joon Soo finds his savior
After rushing Joon Soo to the hospital, Gong Mi left without a word to anybody. Although his parents and his grandmother asked around for who it was that rescued him, even the nurses couldn’t give an answer. Joon Soo remembers though about the CCTV at the restaurant and goes back to see Gong Mi perform her heroic deed. So she doesn’t want to be praised but she doesn’t want Gong Mi to know that she found Joon Soo either? Why? Because she doesn’t want her sister feeling guilty? Is Gong Mi turning a nice leaf?
10. We meet Joon Pyo’s kidnapper
Or at least we can assume it’s him. After Gong Shim who has her head in the clouds because she’s pissed at Dan Tae, accidentally runs into the president and smarmy director Dae Chul, Dae Chul heads to the washroom to wash the spilled coffee from his shirt. As he rolls up his sleeve to get the stain out, we catch a glimpse of the butterfly Joon Pyo’s mother had seen on his kidnapper. Well I’ll be damned. President, did you have anything to do with the kidnapping? Was that why your wife fled the scene instead of going to help her sister-in-law? Is that why you had Joon Pyo declared officially missing?
Character I wanted to bitch slap:
Ignore Gong Shim in the frame. I just need to slap both her parents real hard. Any parent that tells you not to aspire to higher when you’re falling in love, or not to even bother with minding who you fall in love with because your love will always been one sided deserves to be slapped from now to kingdom come. Urgh!
Headache inducing moment:
I was fluctuating between hoping Dan Tae remembers this man as his kidnapper and praying to the high heaves that the smarmy director doesn’t see any resemblance between the Ahn Dan Tae standing before him and the Joon Pyo he kidnapped, because something tells me it won’t have ended well. Talk about intense.
This episode’s a Le Citron Lemongrass. Light and airy on the comedy, with the tang of lemon to keep things interesting, i.e. the fire and the discovery of who the kidnapper is. I want more!
