Sang Il turns desperate as he tries to keep Tae Joon locked behind bars. But nobody backs Hye Kyung into a corner and walks away scot-free, especially when you do so in a court of law. Joong Won continues to be Hye Kyung’s support system although a rumor threatens to shatter that. Something really is going on under the surface of Tae Joon’s corruption charge but as always with this show, we have no idea what’s what.
The Episode in 10 Moments:
- Tae Joon wants to come home and Hye Kyung’s getting stereotyped at work
We open on Hye Kyung apologizing to Tae Joon for having moved his mother to a rehab hospital because there’s a limit to the amount of appropriate care she can give her at home. Tae Joon is happy with the amount of help she’s been able to give so far and brings up the fact that his appeal is drawing closer and he would need her testimony. Hye Kyung asks how close and Tae Joon replies that the bail hearing is in two days. He informs her that she will be asked if her or her children will be willing to welcome him home and when Hye Kyung hesitates, Tae Joon’s quick to point out that him being out on bail will free up time for her and he will be able to take care of his mother as well. The next morning, Joong Won and Myung Hee meet to downsize and Joon Ho who’s been fired from two law firms already is able to call it accurately. He does tell Hye Kyung that he’s certain he won’t be the attorney to leave however and Hye Kyung’s worried. To make it worse, Joong Won doesn’t say anything about it when he shows up, although their talk is interrupted by the another lawyer: Yeon Joo, who’s come on behalf of her client for a land dispute case. Yeon Joo is of the opinion that the firm has nothing against her client which is why they’re trying to settle rather than sue. Joong Won agrees, stating that Yeon Joo’s client stayed clear of getting caught by the law and had instead, found a legal loophole to hold out for long enough that they stand the chance of getting the land completely whilst the construction company and the other partners in the liaison are considering pulling out. Joong Won asks Yeon Joo if she doesn’t feel guilty for putting the other companies out of business but Yeon Joo’s the definition of a shark of a lawyer whose sole concern is for her clients. She’s not that much of a shark however that she doesn’t take the time to flirt with Joong Won who’s known her since her school days, and she offers to show him her tattoos. Hye Kyung’s called away from the flirtation session by David Lee who informs her that one of his client’s upset and he wants Hye Kyung to comfort her. Hye Kyung tries to point out that she has her own client but David Lee informs her that he’s telling her, not asking her for a favor. She heads to her office, frustrated and when Kim Dan shows up, admits that once again, she’s being put in the position of comforting a potential divorcee. Kim Dan’s suggestion is that Hye Kyung should ask David Lee to put her on the case as one of the assisting attorneys. Hye Kyung doesn’t think he will agree and neither does Kim Dan. But, Kim Dan figures Hye Kyung wouldn’t lose anything by bugging David Lee anyway.
2. Hye Kyung has to talk divorce whilst Joon Ho moves in on her case
Hye Kyung walks in, right in the middle of David Lee’s spiel about how nasty men are and why women should therefore take the offensive stance as a self defense mechanism. He’s talking divorce proceedings of course and the minute Hye Kyung walks in, his formerly tense client loosens up, even as David Lee lays it on thick that Hye Kyung can write a thesis on just how nasty men are. The client is Shim Eun Sook and she has met quite a number of divorce lawyers in her time because she’s reached the point of divorce several times, but her husband always apologizes and she ends up changing her mind. She continues to talk but Hye Kyung’s distracted at the sight of Joon Ho leading her construction company client into the meeting with Yeon Joo. She’s right to be worried as Joong Won’s called Joon Ho to fill in for Hye Kyung. The construction company CEO is briefed that Yeon Joo’s client wants to be paid seventy-four million dollars, excluding tax and the man laughs at the outrageous sum. Yeon Joo’s smiling pretty and states that the man’s company can easily be taken away from him, but her face falls when the CEO claims that he can just take the property by force. Things aren’t made easier when Joon Ho points out that if they turn the business into a private public company and partner with the Government, the land can be purchased at the market price (so nothing close to the seventy-four million dollars they’re asking for then). Yeon Joo immediately starts to sing a different tune as she attempts to convince “President Ko” that they can still reach an agreement. Except, the man in front of her is Cho Guk Hyun (wait, where have I heard that name before? Holy shit. He’s the one who’d given Tae Joon the bribe necklace that Tae Joon had in turn given to Hye Kyung), whose company’s bought the elusive President Ko’s company over. Meanwhile, over at Hye Kyung’s side, Eun Seok turns out to be the wife of Sang Il (poor Hye Kyung. She’s probably wondering which entity she offended in her past life that she has to be stuck with Sang Il) and just as the news is sinking in, Sang Il barges into the meeting, ignores David Lee’s greeting and asks to speak with Hye Kyung privately. Hye Kyung heads out to meet Sang Il but not before informing David Lee that there’s way more work than she’d expected and so she expects to have her name put on the case.
3. Sang Il makes his threats and Hye Kyung meets Cho Guk Hyun
Sang Il meets with Hye Kyung in her office and gives this fantastical recounting of the fact that he and his wife never had any problems until Hye Kyung showed up. Hye Kyung calls bullshit and tells him to open his eyes and look around, and try and figure out what Eun Seok is thinking. Sang Il though is only concerned with what he is thinking and his thinking is that they have two kids and so he can’t agree to a divorce. Hye Jung scoffs as she reminds him that he’d told her to get a divorce. The words have Sang Il grabbing Hye Kyung’s arm (hey! Let go of her. What the fuck are you thinking you piece of shit). Joong Won who’d been talking to Joo Yeon who wants to meet with him in private so they can agree on their clients’ settlement notices the wrist grab from across the room. Sang Il, who’s lost all manners of sense threatens Hye Kyung that Tae Joon will not be able to make bail if she continues down the path she wants to take. He tells her that he has enough evidence to tear her family apart and mentions the envelope he’d dropped off (A-ha! I knew he was the one, the slimy snake!), stating that there’s more where that came from. Hye Kyung has no idea what he’s talking about and Joong Won enters the room to warn Sang Il to let Hye Kyung’s arm go otherwise people might think the head prosecutor is threatening her. Sang Il releases Hye Kyung’s arm but tells her before leaving that she should tell his wife that he won’t go easy on her this time around. Over at Hye Kyung’s house, her kids find yet another package on their doorstep. This time around though, it’s a CD which they play and which turns out to be a video of Tae Joon meeting some businessmen. Again, the kids decide to hide it from Hye Kyung. Meanwhile, Cho Guk Hyun requests to see Hye Kyung. The minute he spots her, he brings up Tae Joon, talking about Tae Joon’s trial and how he’s sure that justice will prevail. Hye Kyung doesn’t give away that she knows about his relationship with Tae Joon but Cho Guk Hyun keeps talking about Tae Joon and how he’d brought him in during the investigation of the Dream UCT. He keeps talking so much that Joong Won gets uncomfortable and even Myung Hee notices. Myung Hee then brings up the fact that Cho Guk Hyun is considering hiring their law firm as his legal counsel and Cho Guk Hyun requests that Hye Kyung be his attorney. Myung Hee tries to shut it down but Joong Won agrees. Hye Kyung tries to get out of it, But Cho Guk Hyun insists. Joong Won’s all ready to celebrate about their new client and even Myung Hee pointing out that Cho Guk Hyun was mentioned in Tae Joon’s scandal and might most likely be involved in something shady isn’t enough to get Joong Won to back down, especially because he thinks it would be beneficial to both Hye Kyung and the firm. Myung Hee tries to caution him that they haven’t gotten the account yet and Joong Won expresses his willingness to do everything to reach a settlement. As he walks away, Myung Hee states that that’s what she’s worried about.
4. The rumor mill is at it again and Joong Won is a confirmed feminist
Per their agreement, Joong Won meets with Yeon Joo in the privacy of her apartment. There’s talk of how much they should agree to so they can convince their respective clients to go along with the agreed upon price. Joong Won is offered first mover advantage being the one representing the buyer. But before he can state how much he’s considering, they pick up from where they left off with the flirting, and with wine and a whole lot of touching, Yeon Joo confirms that Joong Won isn’t dating anyone and Joong Won sees her new tattoo in full detail. Yeon Joo then excuses herself to shower and get changed and Joong Won gets to work snooping through her bag. He pulls out her laptop, copies the business file onto his flash drive and returns her laptop. Immediately, he gets a call from Myung Hee that has him switching on the television where Hye Kyung’s marital woes have now been replaced with speculation about Joong Won, who was photographed with her at the hotel they visited for Eun Joo’s case, being her new paramour. Yeon Joo wonders if Joong Won now likes older woman, but Joong Won calls the news report false and states that he will sue the station. The news though gives him the excuse he needs to leave, and he tells Yeon Joo that he will text her their price. In the car, he calls Hye Kyung to apologize for putting yet another burden on her. Hye Kyung figures that the news will move on to something else in a couple of days but Joong Won suggests they take a break away from each other for a while in order to stop the rumors. Next he calls, Joon Ho to ask him to pack for a business trip and in the morning, he meets Myung Hee to tell her that the hotel visit was for Eun Jo’s case. Myung Hee is more concerned with the fact that their law firm will now be associated with adultery and tells Joong Won to suggest that Hye Kyung quit. She tells him that either he does it or she will do it. Joong Won isn’t interested in that however, as he states that it was he and Hye Kyung that got into the mess and so why should only Hye Kyung quit (all hail the feminist). Myung Hee finally agrees to watch things for a while but expresses her concern that Joong Won could get hurt.
5. The rumor continues to spread and Eun Seok shows her claws
Hye Kyung meets with Kim Dan who she tries to convince that there had been no having sex with Joong Won. Hye Kyung gets worked up describing in detail all that led to them being at the hotel and Kim Dan laughs, even as she asks what’s wrong with Hye Kyung sleeping with Joong Won who is fine (very fine as far as I’m concerned. But then again, Tae Joon’s also smoking. Hye Kyung you lucky, lucky girl). The words just frustrate Hye Kyung some more and Kim Dan finally laughs and puts Hye Kyung out of her misery, suggesting that next time, Hye Kyung should just give a short succinct answer rather than try explaining the details. So, when Joon Ho comes in with his cheeky smile to ask if she’s dating Joong Won, Hye Kyung merely tells him no (good girl. No is a complete sentence. Remember that). He leaves with a smile whilst Kim Dan gives a smile of her own. Thankfully, Hye Kyung finds her savior in Eun Seok who’s come for the meeting to start her divorce proceedings. Sang Il doesn’t show up for the meeting and instead has his lawyer handle things on his behalf. When the lawyer states that what they have to discuss is when Eun Seok will be leaving the house, Hye Kyung’s surprised and mentions that they should be talking about asset division and alimony and considering that the kids want to stay with her, Eun Seok should be getting custody of her kids. Except, Eun Seok had signed a property agreement with Sang Il and so he’s not mandated to pay her alimony (ouch) and since she doesn’t have any money, there’s no sense in her fighting to keep the children for their sake (double ouch). David Lee points to the fact that an agreement that seems forced or lacking in sense wouldn’t readily pass in court. The lawyer smiles as he tells them to look for a clause then, and then, he tells Eun Seok that Sang Il is willing to accept her back if she comes back home and begs him. Eun Seok though has had enough and mentions Triton Fields. She tells the lawyer to tell Sang Il that if he doesn’t show up the next time, she shall be telling Hye Kyung what she saw on Sang Il’s computer. Sang Il’s lawyer points out that Eun Seok is threatening his client and Eun Seok tells him to tell Sang Il that Sang Il can do what he does best: sue her (well would you look at that. She’s got claws and isn’t afraid to use them. Nice). After the meeting, Hye Kyung admits to feeling offended that she’d been used by Eun Seok as a bargaining chip. Eun Seok suggests that Hye Kyung use her as well, so that Hye Kyung wouldn’t feel offended.
6. Sang Il’s very delusional and Tae Joon smells his redemption
Tae Joon receives a visitor in prison; Sang Il who has guards confiscate all of Tae Joon’s files and reading material under the guise that they’re prohibited materials that Tae Joon shouldn’t have in the first place. He tells Tae Joon that Tae Joon shouldn’t have touched his family and Tae Joon rightly points to Sang Il having touched his family. Sang Il however, just barrels on through and accuses Hye Kyung of forcing Eun Seok into a divorce. Tae Joon laughs as he says he has no idea what Sang Il’s talking about, although he understands how difficult it must have been for Eun Seok to live with Sang Il. He tells Sang Il that it’s his turn to suffer, but Sang Il simply replies that Tae Joon would suffer more and then proceeds to list all the restrictions that will now be placed on Tae Joon. Tae Joon doesn’t let it bother him but when Sang Il hands him a newspaper with the report of Hye Kyung supposedly dating Joong Won, that gets to him. Unaware of the poison Sang Il’s spewing, Hye Kyung’s working at home when Seo Yeon enters and brings up her fears about her mother getting divorced. Hye Kyung allays her fears and tells her that at the moment, she’s working on being composed and being understanding. Seo Yeon makes to leave but Hye Kyung stops her to ask if she’s had any packages delivered to her. Seo Yeon lies that there haven’t been any and Hye Kyung believes her. The next morning, she heads in to see Tae Joon who’s called her over. Because of Sang Il, they no longer have their private meeting space and so have to meet just like everyone else. Hye Kyung wonders if Tae Joon wants her to stop representing Eun Seok but Tae Joon tells her that he called her because he wants to talk about her testimony. He admits to having seen the article and asks if it’s okay for him to come back home, stating that he’s not trying to force her or anything and she can do whatever she wants. Hye Kyung insists that she will testify and also tells him that nothing happened between herself and Joong Won because unlike Tae Joon, she doesn’t lie or hurt her family like he does. Besides, should anything happen between her and Joong Won, she’ll be sure to tell Tae Joon. Tae Joon smiles as he states that that’s the Hye Kyung he knows. She also brings up Triton Fields and Tae Joon perks up as he asks her where she heard it from. When Hye Kyung admits that Eun Seok had said she saw it on Sang Il’s computer, he excitedly asks her if Eun Seok would be willing to share more of such information with her. Outside the prison, Hye Kyung runs into Joo Hwan who also reiterates how important Hye Kyung’s testimony is to getting Tae Joon out on bail. Hye Kyung brings up Cho Guk Hyun’s visit and his request that she be his legal counsel. She asks if Joo Hwan had sent him or if there’s anything else that they aren’t telling her. Joo Hwan tells her that they aren’t hiding anything and then warns her that people will be able to tell if her words don’t match her feelings, should she get confused during her testimony. He then asks that they run through her testimony together but Hye Kyung refuses stating that she will tell the truth at the courthouse. With that, she leaves and Joo Hwan meets with Tae Joon to give him the recovered pictures of Hye Kyung and Joong Won. Although he tells Tae Joon that there’s nothing to be worried about, Tae Joon squeezes one of the picture and grits through his teeth that this time around, he has to make bail (jealous are we?).
7. Eun Seok plays her hand very well whilst Joong Won plays dirty
Yeon Joo brings her clients to the firm and the group’s delighted at the prospect of getting their money’s worth. She smiles at Joong Won who smiles right back, but when it’s time to make the offer, he writes down a hundred and thirty thousand dollars (from seventy-four million dollars? Wow. That’s not even up to five percent of the initial asking price) as their final offer. Yeon Joo’s shocked as that’s the market price and Joong Won admits that his employee (Joon Ho) had headed to Japan to sign the contract with the actual owner of the land, meaning Yeon Joo’s clients don’t have a leg to stand on. Meanwhile, over at Eun Seok and Sang Il’s divorce proceeding meeting, Sang Il tries to get Eun Seok to talk with him privately. When that fails, he proceeds to state why Eun Seok isn’t entitled to anything because of the signed property agreement. When Eun Seok turns to ask Hye Kyung if she’s curious as to how Sang Il had gotten hold of the video, Sang Il cuts her off by telling her that she’s playing a dangerous game. Eun Seok asks him to give her a fair settlement then, and when Sang Il replies that the settlement he’s offering is fair, Eun Seok informs Hye Kyung that Sang Il has a folder on his computer filled with all of Tae Joon’s documents. Sang Il offers that they both keep the property they had prior to their marriage and Eun Seok will get thirty percent of their property after marriage. The deal isn’t enough for Eun Seok who brings up Triton Fields. Sang Il screams at her to stop and asks if she’s aware of what she’s doing. Eun Seok figures he wouldn’t arrest the mother of his children, causing Sang Il to ask what she wants. David Lee pipes up that she wants fifty percent of their acquired properties after their marriage, plus alimony (Mama Mia). Sang Il then asks what she’ll do if he refuses and Eun Seok smiles as she tells Sang Il that he’ll be having a very long conversation with Hye Kyung. Outside the meeting room, Yeon Joo accuses Joong Won of having stolen the Japanese owner’s number off of her laptop. Joong Won doesn’t deny it as he admits that he had to win. His eyes naturally drift to Hye Kyung (dude, all this sexual tension had better culminate in at least one hell of a kiss) and Yeon Joo wonders if Hye Kyung has any idea the kind of man that Joong Won really is because she figures that by the time Hye Kyung discovers the truth, she will despise him as much as Yeon Joo despises him at that moment (I don’t know about that though. She is still married to one of the most sharklike prosecutors in the country). Back at the meeting, Sang Il’s conspicuously missing but he did however agree to Eun Seok’s terms although he also handed her a confidentiality agreement to sign. Eun Seok confirms that Sang Il’s gone to the courthouse for Tae Joon’s bail hearing and sighs that he didn’t apologize to the very end. She drops her pen and offers to tell Hye Kyung what she knows before she signs the document (smart woman). After David Lee excuses them (hahaha. Although he tried very hard to be a part of the meeting), Eun Seok tells Hye Kyung that Sang Il had tapped Tae Joon’s phone and has folders filled with recordings of Tae Joon’s phone calls. It was also where she’d heard the name Triton Fields. She tells Hye Kyung that that’s all she knows and although it isn’t much, she hopes that everything turns out the way Hye Kyung wants it to.
8. Tae Joon threatens his way into a favor and Hye Kyung’s in a tight spot
Whilst Tae Joon’s waiting for his bail hearing, Do Sub comes to meet him and catch up. He mentions that he hopes Tae Joon gets out of prison soon but mentions that Sang Il’s determined to be the one present for Tae Joon’s bail hearing so as to bring down Tae Joon and Hye Kyung as well. Seeing the shift in Tae Joon’s stance, Do Sub comes closer and spills the beans. Namely that Cho Guk Hyun has been meeting Sang Il. He however has no idea what they talk about and so can’t give any details. When he asks Tae Joon if he’s spoken to Cho Guk Hyun recently, Tae Joon jumps on him and retrieves Do Sub’s phone that has been set to record. He answers no into the phone and switches off the recording. When Do Sub pleads that he was pressured into doing it, Tae Joon warns him that Do Sub doesn’t want him as an enemy when Tae Joon gets out. Tae Joon then tells him that all he has to do to ensure that that’s not the case is for Do Sub to do him a small favor whenever Tae Joon asks for it. Meanwhile, over at the firm, Cho Guk Hyun is pleased with how well Joong Won handle the land issue. Joong Won then heads to the restroom where he’s later joined by Mr. Kang, Cho Guk Hyun’s righthand man who admits to knowing Tae Joon and Hye Kyung as well. He even states that he played a big role in them getting married. Hye Kyung who is unaware of this conversation is packing up so she can head to the hearing. When Kim Dan asks her if she wants Tae Joon to be released, Hye Kyung answers honestly that she has no idea. All she does know is that she will speak the truth in her testimony and not harm anyone. She then heads out of her office and runs into Joong Won on her way out of the building. She calls out to him that she’s on her way to the court and Joong Won watches her leave with a not to happy expression on his face. At the bail hearing, Sang Il’s the one in the Prosecutor seat and after listing out Tae Joon’s crimes, he points out that Tae Joon’s not remorseful about his actions but instead, insists that he’s innocent. Sang Il’s argument therefore is that should Tae Joon be released, he will destroy evidence and then flee the country. Joo Hwan pipes up that Tae Joon was only found guilty during the first trial, and seeing that the present trial is still ongoing, then he can’t be thought of being guilty of all the crimes listed. More importantly, he’s just a husband and a father who’s trying to prove his innocence. The judge then asks if Hye Kyung’s okay with her husband returning home, and when Joo Hwan calls her onto the stand, she agrees. Then, it’s Sang Il’s turn and he focuses on the fact that Hye Kyung had visited a divorce lawyer when the scandal first broke. Hye Kyung points out that a lot of people consider getting divorce for the most innocuous of reasons. But Sang Il’s question isn’t to other people but to Hye Kyung who he again asks if she’d consider divorcing her husband.
9. Hye Kyung turns things around and Hye Kyung and Joong Won remember happier times
Myung Hee enters Joong Won’s office with Cho Guk Hyun’s agreement offer to put their services on retainer. Joong Won doesn’t even pay attention to it as he hurries out of the office. On his computer screen, we see a news article about a law student who had gotten into an accident. Meanwhile, in the courthouse, Sang Il continues to press with his questioning about Hye Kyung’s feelings for Tae Joon, asking her if she loves Tae Joon. Hye Kyung admits to having loved him and Sang Il asks about the present. Hye Kyung finally snaps as she admits that she loves Tae Joon, and she also hates him. Her feelings keep changing every day. She asks if her feelings are that important to Sang Il and if he’s that curious. Sang Il replies by stating that she’s the witness not him and Hye Kyung snaps at him to stop asking irrelevant questions. She asks him if he wants her to say that she hates Tae Joon and will divorce him soon or maybe he wants her to say that she doesn’t want Tae Joon released. Sang Il insists that he’s the one asking the questions and Hye Kyung just continues with the question, asking him if he thinks she will turn talk ill of Tae Joon should she get emotionally attacked enough. She tells Sang Il that the question she should be asked is whether or not she wants her husband to come back home (talk about being schooled on how to do your job). And after taking an oath to tell the truth, she has said that she wants her husband home and that’s what she wants! She wants him home to be with her and stay by her kids (damn, that’s powerful. I feel tears prickling at the edges of my eyes. I’m as emotional as Tae Joon looks at the moment). She then asks Sang Il if there are further questions. Before a stunned Sang Il can even think to reply, the judge tells him not to ask any more questions as he will take into account the view from both sides and the witness’s testimony to make his decision. As Hye Kyung walks away, Tae Joon has tears in his eyes (I have them in mine too) and Hye Kyung keeps right on walking till she’s out the door. We then cut to her on a bench waiting for the results (damn I love her shoes) and Joong Won comes running to join her. She tells him that she’s waiting for Joo Hwan to brief her on the result of the hearing and Joong Won tells her that she’s going to be handling Cho Guk Hyun’s account. She’s impressed that he succeeded and Joong Won asks her if she’d met Tae Joon at the Judicial Training Institute. Hye Kyung admits to it, stating that she’d met Tae Joon who had taught them in a special prosecution class and although Tae Joon had failed her then, she was at her happiest at the Institute because she was young and figured she had a bright future. Joong Won teases her as he reminds her that she used to claim that her school days were hard and soon they’re both laughing at the remembered memories. Joong Won then asks her if she wishes she could go back to that time. Hye Kyung admits that she wishes she can so her present ordeal would be a dream and she can go back to being her clueless self. But she doesn’t know how to go back. At that exact moment, Joo Hwan calls.
10. Tae Joon returns home and Joong Won’s feelings for Hye Kyung run deep
The whole family waits anxiously (although for different reasons) for Tae Joon to get home. Seo Yeon wonders where Tae Joon would sleep and when Ji Hoon snaps at her for thinking about rooms when their father is coming home, Seo Yeon tells Ji Hoon to consider their mother as well (awwww. So smart this girl). Their argument is interrupted by the doorbell ringing and Ji Hoon runs to open the door. Ji Hoon and Soo Ho are all smiles and Seo Yeon and Hye Kyung are not. Over at the law firm, Joong Won’s going through the news article about the law student’s accident when Joon Ho enters his office, all smiles as he admits to working hard with completing the negotiations so Joong Won’s trust in him wouldn’t be in vain. Joong Won replies that he gave him the work because Hye Kyung was busy and not because he trusts Joon Ho (ouch). Joon Ho tries to recover and brings up how busy Hye Kyung must be with Tae Joon’s return. He then brings up Joong Won and Hye Kyung attending the same school and figures they must be as close as family. Joong Won replies that they’re pretty close and Joon Ho figures that Joong Won must have been surprised to see her on the news. And now that Tae Joon is back, things must be awkward between Joong Won and Hye Kyung. When Joong Won replies that that wouldn’t complicate things between them, Joon Ho replies that Joong Won must trust Hye Kyung then. Joong Won’s voice goes hard as he replies that truthfully, he despises most people because they’re greedy and ignorant, but Hye Kyung is different. Without trying so hard, she easily earns the trust of others and figures out answers instinctively. He then tells Joon Ho that Joon Ho has to work harder. Joon Ho nods his head in agreement and leaves, and Joong Won turns his attention back to his screen and the article about the accident. As he reads it again, he flashes back to Mr. Kang stating that he met Tae Joon and Hye Kyung fifteen years prior and although things changed for him, his leg has never been the same ever since. The article seems further solidify the connection as it states that Kim saw Kang too late and the car collided with him. Over at Hye Kyung’s home, Ji Hoon brings home the camera recording he’d made and plays it. He gets distracted however and leaves and so is not at his seat to see a strange man trying to disarm the lock on their door.
Character I wanted to bitchslap:
None in this episode.
Headache inducing moment:
Because of all the times Ji Hoon had to get off his seat, he chooses that exact moment to do so? Like seriously though. Argh!!! For his sake, I hope he replays the tape, or that Tae Joon sees it because otherwise I’ll be so pissed that their house is most likely bugged and nobody would has any idea.
This episode’s a White Russian. It’s sweet, it’s creamy and it goes straight to your head. We find ourselves carried away as Hye Kyung blows Sang Il out of the water with her testimony even as we clutch at our hearts with the sweetness of that moment. She might not like her husband very much at the moment, but she still loves him and that pang of heartache is done so well. Add in the creamy deliciousness of Joong Won being in love with Hye Kyung even though he’s not yet admitted it to himself and the constantly shifting balance and ties that has us wondering who is guilty and innocent, good or bad, and we have an episode that’s just as classic as the ones we’ve seen so far. This drama just keeps getting more and more amazing.
