Seo Woo’s always gotten away with speaking hurtful words and gets the taste of her own medicine. Or rather, she gets flayed with words by Yoon Do, our adorable but ruthless cutie. Myung Hoon and Sung Jong continue to plan. We get more of a glimpse into Ji Hong’s past and Chairman Hong is sick. Very sick.
The Episode in 10 Moments:
- Ji Hong keeps making sweet progress
We open on Hye Jung and Ji Hong, taking a break from their running to lie back and stare at the stars. Ji Hong offers his arm as a makeshift pillow and Hye Jung takes him up on it. Soon, she’s fast asleep, utterly comfortable as she turns to him in her sleep. Hye Jung tells us that once you’ve had your revenge, then the anger in you calms down. Revenge gives you the strength to calm down and move on. She continues that she doesn’t stop until she’s achieved her goal, but she feels sleepy with Ji Hong (awwww. She’s able to fully let go in his presence huh? How adorable). While she naps, Seo Woo is finally at Sooni Hawaii, although she’s now completely drunk, even though she came way later than the others. In her drunken haze, she blames Soon Hee for her problems, stating that everything started when Soon Hee brought Hye Jung to meet her (seriously girl, Hye Jung is not the cause of your problem. How many times do I have to say that?). Young Kook finally drags her off, and even as Soon Hee’s relieved that she can now close, Joong Dae pops up like a jack in a box. He’s huffy that everyone left him behind and hungry as he asks for some ramyeon. Soon Hee isn’t having it though as she screams at him to leave. Over at the hospital, Kang Soo finally wakes up and is surprised at how nice Kyung Joon is suddenly being. Meanwhile, Ji Hong escorts Hye Jung home. She’s sorry that his arm seems to hurt (even though he denies it, hehehehe) and explains that she’s not one giving to sleeping so easily. Their moment is interrupted by Soon Hee who walks up to them, clucking like a mother hen about how late Hye Jung is and how she has to be careful walking around especially when there are crazy people around, like the couple she’d heard were dancing in the rain (hahaha). Ji Hong takes that as his cue to leave (hehehehe), whilst Hye Jung tries to run away. She doesn’t pull it off (seeing that she lives with Soon Hee. Hehehehe), but at home, Soon Hee’s moved the conversation to drunk Seo Woo and Young Kook who she thinks is cute (awwww. So Kang Soo doesn’t have a chance huh? Why?!!!!). She then brings up Yoon Do and places a bet that Yoon Do likes Hye Jung. Hye Jung doesn’t look happy at the thought.
2. Yoon Do adorably makes a claim and Ji Hong just works it to his advantage
Yoon Do goes for a run and by the time he gets back home, it’s to find Ji Hong just returning. He asks if Ji Hong’s just getting back and when Ji Hong mentions the tone he’d used to ask the question, Yoon Do admits that he likes Hye Jung. He’s well aware that Ji Hong and Hye Jung seem to have a special relationship but he’s sure that as long as they aren’t married, then he might still have a chance. When Ji Hong asks if Hye Jung knows about his feelings, Yoon Do admits it. And when Ji Hong asks why he’s telling Ji Hong all these words, Yoon Do replies that he hates stabbing people in the back (awwww. How adorable) and so he doesn’t want to scheme in the dark and steal Hye Jung. Ji Hong wonders why Yoon Do thinks Ji Hong would let lose Hye Jung to him. He tells Yoon Do that he likes how manly Yoon Do is with the admission and whatnot, but Ji Hong’s never lost something he wants to someone else. Yoon Do gives a sullen look (hehehe. He’s so adorable). Ji Hong continues that he’s happy that Yoon Do can see Hye Jung’s charms and that Hye Jung’s popular with the guys. Yoon Do asks if Ji Hong sees him as such little a threat and Ji Hong replies that Yoon Do would just help him and Hye Jung see how strong their bond is. He then wishes Yoon Do all the best and heads in. Yoon Do huffs that Ji Hong’s a show-off and wonders why he’s so confident. He calls out after Ji Hong that one never knows how it would end till the couple is married. Ji Hong just keeps walking and Yoon Do asks himself why he feels he’s lost even before he’d started (that’s because you have sweetie). Up in his apartment, Ji Hong sends a puppy emoticon to Hye Jung who smiles to see it and soon they’re texting back and forth. When Ji Hong asks Hye Jung if she’s free the next day, she tells him that she already has plans. He then asks about the day after and she finally agrees to spend the morning of it with him.
3. Hye Jung runs into a dead end but finds her way through anyway
Hye Jung’s plans turn out to be visiting the Kookil branch office to ask for Mal Soon’s records but is disappointed when the doctor tells het that the record is gone as they discard patients records after ten years have elapsed. Hye Jung doesn’t let that derail her however as she then concentrates on meeting the person who had assisted in the surgery: Kim Chi Hyun who had been a resident thirteen years prior but is now a department head. He wonders how she knows he was a resident then and Hye Jung replies that someone she knew was a patient at that time. Even as he’s replying that the department head was the one that saw patients back then, Hye Jung shows him Mal Soon’s records and points out that he’s the one who wrote them. He immediately gets angsty and asks who she is, stating that if she had questions, she should have booked an appointment. Plus, he doesn’t even know why she’d come to him when he hadn’t been the person in charge. Hye Jung replies that Mal Soon had been Chi Hyun’s patient and he’d been the one to fill out the operation records. She tells him that she wants to know everything that happened in the OR. Chi Hyun replies that he can’t be expected to remember what happened thirteen years ago and Hye Jung tells him to think harder as an incident easily forgotten by him might be something someone else just can’t forget. Chi Hyun points out that she can’t sue because the statue of limitations has passed and Hye Jung replies that she is well aware that she can’t legally punish him if he did something wrong, but there are other punishment options that can be considered (what are they exactly? I want to know. Give me an idea of how you’re going to bring Myung Hoon down). Chi Hyun sighs and asks Hye Jung what it is that she wants. She replies that she wants an apology, the truth and wants the people responsible to pay. These are rules that are part of a healthy society. Chi Hyun tells her that he’s not the operating surgeon and so he can’t help her. Hye Jung merely leaves the records behind along with her phone number and she tells Chi Hyun to give her a call. After leaving the hospital, she goes shopping for colorful lipstick, explaining that she’s going to see her grandmother who likes pretty things. The sales person offers Hye Jung free samples to pass onto her grandmother, stating that her grandmother, passed away. Hye Jung wears her new lipstick and holds onto a small and pretty bouquet of flowers which she places in front of Mal Soon, telling her that she’s sure Mal Soon would like it because Mal Soon likes small, pretty things. And even if Mal Soon doesn’t, it only matters because Hye Jung likes it. The words have her tearing up as she remembers Mal Soon saying the exact same thing. She tells Mal Soon that she won’t ever forget Mal Soon’s life and then she starts to cry as she states that she’s talking like Mal Soon and admits that she misses Mal Soon (*sniff* *sniff*. We miss her too).
4. Two very different family dynamics
The next morning, whilst on their way to work, Myung Hoon tells Seo Woo not to be hung up on Yoon Do (changing your tune now is giving me whiplash. I wonder how Seo Woo feels and if maybe this is how you’ve been changing your mind since when she was a kid. No wonder the girl’s all over the place with her emotions). He tells her that no one can love her as much as he does and if not for President Jung, he would have punished Yoon Do for the disrespect. But, she shouldn’t cut Yoon Do off completely as men have a weakness for women who wait for them (wow. Dude, you give horrible advice. Horrible. So she should put her life on old on the possibility that the guy just might like her back? Horrible advice). Seo Woo asks how she’s meant to just pretend and Myung Hoon replies that in business, she must change people’s minds by pretending (but this isn’t business. This are matters of her heart). Seo Woo reminds him that she’s a doctor and Myung Hoo replies that she’s a doctor with good business acumen who must learn to be flexible. We then move to a more pleasant ride, with Ji Hong picking up Hye Jung from her house. He drives and she teases him about his hatred for fishing. He corrects her that he doesn’t hate fishing, he just finds it boring. But, he wants to see his father and he’s sure that with her around, the fishing wouldn’t be as boring (ha! Just admit that you want to introduce her to daddy dearest). They meet Chairman Hong who immediately remembers Hye Jung as the girl who had called Ji Hong on their previous fishing trip (hahaha. The old man’s smart). He then smiles and asks Hye Jung what she likes about Ji Hong (hahahahaha. Classic. Just classic). We then cut to Seo Woo and Myung Hoon arriving at a site which Sung Jong points out to Seo Woo as being their future. She replies that it looks like they have a long way to go but Sung Jong replies that he and Myung Hoon are at present, sowing the seeds whilst Seo Woo’s the one that would reap the fruits of their success. Seo Woo agrees to live the dream for the three of them and Sung Jong asks Myung Hoon if it’s today. Myung Hoon replies that he would soon head over so he can supervise. ‘It’ turns out to be National Tax Service storming the hospital to grab everything they can and Myung Hoon smiles in satisfaction as he tells his assistant that Chairman Hong is done now (dude, I hate seeing your smug face). We then go back to the fishing trip where Chairman Hong asks Hye Jung about her family and how long she and Ji Hong have known each other. Ji Hong interrupts that Chairman Hong should stop asking Hye Jung so many questions as he’s making her nervous. He then starts to serve Hye Jung some fish soup and when she offers to help, Chairman Hong replies that Hye Jung’s doing well enough by just being there and sitting with them. Ji Hong then asks Hye Jung if she can cook and when she looks embarrassed as she answers in the negative, Chairman Hong replies that she’s doing more than enough by just sitting there and being content (hahahahaha. Chairman Hong’s like, hello pretty, pretty daughter-in-law. You’re perfect. Everything about you is perfect). They start to dig into their food but Ji Hong gets a call from Tae Ho who informs him about the Tax Service inspection and Ji Hong can barely keep the worry off his face. Meanwhile, Seo Woo’s shopping at a beauty store for products to change her look (sweetie, it’s more a case of how you act, than how you look). After their meal, Ji Hong sees Hye Jung off and tells her that his father’s driver would drop her off. She’s clearly concerned about him as she debates whether she should ask him about what’s troubling him or just let it go. She finally decides on not asking and Ji Hong thanks her for making his father’s day. After she leaves, Ji Hong goes back to join Chairman Hong who feels guilty for all the trouble he’s caused the hospital. Ji Hong rightly suspects that someone got involved and Chairman Hong replies that he’s going to call for a director’s meeting so he can resign. Ji Hong sighs as he states that whoever’s been working behind the shadows will be thrilled at the news.
5. Seo Woo might have gotten an outfit change but she’s still stuck in her old ways
Whilst the residents are talking about the National Tax Service showing up, and Joong Dae rightly guesses that it’s all about the power struggle between Chairman Hong and Myung Hoon, Seo Woo calls Young Kook who meets with her and is surprised to see her wearing short shorts underneath her coat. He tries to tell her that she’s not dressed right for the hospital but Seo Woo doesn’t care as she’s decided that she’s done being a good girl (wait, you think you were a good girl?) and is now ready to be all bad. Hye Jung passes bad girl Seo Woo and doesn’t say anything. She is still all ready to keep her silence when Seo Woo sees her in her office dropping off some files but Seo Woo decides that they should have a chat and clear the air. She points out that there are only a few female doctors in Neurosurgery and yet she’d never seen Hye Jung at any of the medical conferences. She asks if Hye Jung’s been avoiding her and Hye Jung confirms it, stating that Seo Woo’s as much a wound to her as she’s a wound to Seo Woo. When Seo Woo asks what she means, Hye Jung clarifies by stating that she’d once liked Seo Woo and had been thrilled that Seo Woo was her friend. But their friendship spiraled downhill and then she found out that Seo Woo also works at Kookil. She had to then prepare herself to face Seo Woo even though it didn’t help and she’s sure Seo Woo must have had it harder because she didn’t get the chance to brace herself for the meeting. Seo Woo replies that she’s sure Hye Jung planned it all so she can take everything from her (I’m so Hye Jung right now, sighing at how dense Seo Woo is. Girl, everything’s not about you). She brings up Ji Hong, stating that Hye Jung knew Seo Woo liked him back then (girl, not everyone’s a mindreader). Hye Jung replies that Seo Woo might not believe her but she didn’t know. Seo Woo then takes offense at the choice of words as she asks if Hye Jung’s implying that Seo Woo doesn’t believe anything she says. She brings up the Hye Jung coming to Kookil to take everything from her speech again, and when Hye Jung replies that she didn’t come to the hospital because of her, Seo Woo demands to know the reason why Hye Jung had come then, stating that if it’s a valid reason, then she will believe her. Hye Jung tells her that she can’t divulge the reason and Seo Woo replies that that means Hye Jung’s not interested in recovering their friendship. Hye Jung’s silence is all the answer that Seo Woo needs.
6. Hye Jung gets a very expensive gift and Seo Woo fancies herself a psychologist
The mobster boss is finally well enough to go home and Hye Jung tells him to leave the man alone. They both know who she’s talking about and the mobster boss agrees to keep it all a secret. Hye Jung heads back to the hospital but is immediately called to the car park where the right hand man of the mobster boss waits with a flashy new car: a gift for Hye Jung (hahaha. This is so cute and so awesome all at once). He hands her the keys, gives her a note, bids her goodbye, in Spanish nonetheless (hahahaha) and walks away. Hye Jung reads the note that has the mobster boss thanking her and promising to listen to women more often. By the time she makes to run after the right hand man, he’s gotten into a car and driven off (he does make sure to flash her a peace sign though. Hahahaha). Everyone’s all congratulatory when Hye Jung gets back to the nurses’ station and when she goes through mobster’s boss’ records to locate his number so she can call him, she learns that his number’s been disconnected. Seo Woo joins them and when Soo Jin: one of the nurses, tells her the news, she’s not interested as her one focus is locating Yoon Do. Yoon Do, who shows up at that moment, has eyes for Hye Jung and doesn’t notice Seo Woo standing there. He tries to get her to agree to their cafeteria lunch but Hye Jung answers that she has plans and walks away. Seo Woo scoffs as she asks Yoon Do if he likes Hye Jung that much. She asks him if he wants to have their conversation right where they are (with the residents and nurses eavesdropping) or somewhere else. Next thing we see, they’re walking outside. When Yoon Do asks her if she’s not meant to be checking on her patients, Seo Woo asks if he’s now concerned about her and slaps him across the face (what the fuck?! Girl, that’s inappropriate). She slaps him one more time and accuses him of leading her on, stating that his mouth might have told her no but his eyes had screamed yes. Yoon Do admits to having liked her once. But it was for a short while and she’d liked other people as well. Seo Woo replies that she can stand him rejecting her but she can’t stand him insulting her family. Yoon Do answers that they can call it even with the slap but he refuses to feel sorry for her anymore. Seo Woo points out that Yoon Do likes girls who’ve been through a lot and have come out strong because of his inferiority complex and states that she will help him get rid of it, starting with her becoming a bad girl. Ever smart Yoon Do points out that people who want to become bad don’t make announcements before they do. Seo Woo merely goes on about the world being an unfair place and how only bad people live well in the world. She points to Hye Jung, asking how someone like her can be loved and be able to live with a new identity and Yoon Do tells her to stop feeling inferior to Hye Jung who even Seo Woo can’t deny is charming. He continues that Hye Jung manages to do everything that even princess Seo Woo hesitates to do. On top of that, she’s beautiful. Seo Woo scoffs at the words and Yoon Do repeats them that Hye Jung is beautiful. Matter of fact, she’s more beautiful than Seo Woo. He asks if Seo Woo’s surprised that he’s talking the way he is and tells her that she’s forgotten that he knows her well and knows exactly how to hurt her. And so, she should stop analyzing his psychology and start analyzing hers. He adds that he’s not interested in her as a woman, but he does see her as a sibling (double burn), but that’s it. Also, he will let her take it out on him until she’s done being upset. Like she said, he must have confused her as well. Nonetheless, she mustn’t slap him again as he finds it humiliating. And with those words, he walks away and Seo Woo breaks down in tears (girl, I don’t feel sorry for you. Your ass needs to be spoken to, as harshly as possible. It’s always easier to be the one doing that flaying than to be the one being flayed isn’t it? Besides, you need some tough love to see straight).
7. Chi Hyun comes blabbing to Myung Hoon and Sung Jong pushes Chairman Hong too far
Soo Jin and Kang Soo beg and plead with Hye Jung who is focused on sending the new car back because she doesn’t believe anything comes without strings being attached to it. She finally caves however when Soo Jin begs her that this would be her only chance to ride a foreign car before she dies. As Soo Jin leads Hye Jung out, to treat her for agreeing to let her ride in her new car, Chi Hyun, who’s come to Kookil sees her side profile and thinks it very familiar (drats). He goes in for his meeting with Myung Hoon and shows Myung Hoon Mal Soon’s medical records, stating that Mal Soon’s relative had come, requesting to know everything that happened in the OR. Myung Hoon scoffs at the words, stating that time has passed and nothing can be done to him. He concludes that the young girl wants money and tells Chi Hyun that this is his chance to prove himself. After Chi Hyun leaves, Sung Jong comes to deliver the good news: Chairman Hong intends to resign at the director’s meeting. Myung Hoon smiles at the words. At the director’s meeting however, Chairman Hong gives his speech about him being sure that a lot of people would think the problem the hospital is facing is his fault. He pauses for a moment as his face takes on a worrying tick (what’s wrong with him?), but he continues and states that retiring from his position isn’t the only option and so he would take responsibility for everything that’s happened and make sure to resolve it all (hahahaha. Take that Myung Hoon!). Myung Hoon and Sung Jong are clearly not pleased at the words and after the meeting, Sung Jong approaches Chairman Hong to tell him that he’s changed and that’s why people say it’s best to retire when one is old. Chairman Hong asks what he means and Sung Jong replies that he thinks it’s sad that Chairman Hong has become a greedy old man. Chairman Hong then asks him if he thinks he’s staying on because of his greed and Sung Jong wonders if maybe it’s Ji Hong that gave Chairman Hong the idea. He wonders why Chairman Hong would listen to Ji Hong who’s not even his biological son. The words have Chairman Hong punching Sung Jong in the face (good for you Chairman Hong!). Chairman Hong tells him to never talk about Ji Hong like that, and Sung Jong glares at him as he promises that he will get back at Chairman Hong for what he’s done. He continues that Chairman Hong had caused the hospital to undergo a tax investigation and should resign but Chairman Hong insists that someone twisted the truth and he intends to find out who the person is. He still has good judgement and Sung Jong should stop acting like the hospital’s his backyard.
8. Chairman Hong is sick. Very sick.
In the elevator with Ji Hong, Chairman Hong tells him not to take what Sung Jong had said about Ji Hong not being his son to heart. Ji Hong reaches out to grab his father’s hand and tells him that he’s gotten over that a long time ago. It’s Chairman Hong who got into a fistfight like a schoolboy. Chairman Hong smiles as he asks if Ji Hong’s laughing at him as well. As he leaves the elevator, Ji Hong notices that the Chairman’s favoring his right side. Suddenly, Chairman Hong falls and Ji Hong rushes to him. Chairman Hong waves off Ji Hong’s concern and when Ji Hong tries to insist that he go for a checkup especially because Chairman Hong hasn’t been gotten one done since his surgery, Chairman Hong insists on not going in, stating that should he go in for a checkup, the rumor around would be that he is dying even though he’s alright. Ji Hong then lists out all the symptoms that the Chairman has displayed and tells him to get himself checked because he thinks that Chairman Hong’s vestibular schwannoma is back. Turns out that Ji Hong is right as scans prove that the tumor is back and it’s neigh inoperable. Ji Hong blames himself and Tae Ho replies that he’s the one to blame because he hadn’t pushed for Chairman Hong’s checkup. Ji Hong suggests that Tae Ho operate, but just like Ji Hong, Tae Ho can’t bear to do the surgery for fear of anything going wrong. He therefore suggests that they get Yoon Do who has steadier hands than him, to do the surgery. But, Chairman Hong will have to take enough rest after the surgery and so Tae Ho tells Ji Hong to suggest that the Chairman step down as his health is the most important. Ji Hong tells Tae Ho to keep it a secret until Chairman Hong comes to a decision and he flashes back to the past when he was getting beaten by bullies for being an orphan. Chairman Hong had interrupted the beatdown and the bullies had hurried off, leaving Chairman Hong to exclaim over Ji Hong’s split lip and bruises. Ji Hong had waved his injuries off and Chairman had asked him if he wasn’t being too cautious for a boy. Ji Hong had replied that Chairman Hong must like to lose because life isn’t like movies. He asks Chairman Hong if he likes beating people without looking ahead and if he likes jeopardizing people around him by not controlling his emotions. If that’s the case, then Chairman Hong is immature. Chairman Hong had then asked if Ji Hong would come home and live with him. Teenage Ji Hong had told him that he would prefer marrying a woman (hahaha) and Chairman Hong had clarified that he wants Ji Hong to be his son (awwwww). Ji Hong also flashes back to when Chairman Hong had been thrilled when he became a doctor and he tears up at the memories. Chairman Hong joins him and looks at the scans, calling his cancer as persistent as he is. Ji Hong advises him to check into the hospital and when Chairman Hong insists that he doesn’t want surgery because he still has to clean up the mess he’s made, Ji Hong replies that he doesn’t want to lose anymore of the people he loves (*sniff* *sniff*).
9. Kang Soo’s in big trouble and Tae Ho briefs Hye Jung and Yoon Do about the surgery
Kang Soo and Soo Jin go on a ride in Hye Jung’s new car. Kang Soo doesn’t have a license so Soo Jin who’s fixated on driving around and looking like a rich woman throws a tantrum and she insists that Kang Soo get out of the car and allow her to drive. Their argument distracts Kang Soo who doesn’t see the incoming vehicle on time and so by the time he does see it, he sends the car swerving out of the way and crashes it into a sign (ouch. And the car doesn’t have insurance either. This isn’t good). Next thing we see, Kang Soo’s at the resident’s lounge trying to complete his drawing of Hye Jung taking down the gang of mobsters (the drawing’s pretty good as well). Joong Dae wonders about him not giving up his dream of being a cartoonist whilst Kang Soo mutters that he intends to finish the drawing before he gets killed. Hye Jung enters the room at that moment and Kang Soo ducks away. She spots him though and he finally takes her to where the car’s at. The damage is pretty extensive and Hye Jung tells Kang Soo that she expects him to fix the car. Kang Soo tries to get out of it by stating that he figures she wouldn’t mind leaving the car unfixed, seeing that she has no interest in driving it anyway. But he changes his tune when Hye Kyung threatens to hit him (hahahaha). Hye Jung then heads in to meet Tae Ho who’s called for a meeting between himself, Yoon Do and Hye Jung. He shows them Chairman Hong’s scans and Yoon Do is at first resistant as he feels that the eyes of everyone in the hospital will be on the surgery and he doesn’t want that. But Tae Ho tells Hye Jung and Yoon Do to keep it a secret and makes his suggestion that they perform a partial tumor removal to relieve the pressure the tumor’s exerting and then remove the rest of the tumor via radiosurgery. Yoon Do’s of the opinion however that they do a full surgery seeing that it was a radiosurgery that had first been used to attempt to remove the tumor and now the tumor has re-occurred. His suggested surgery is more dangerous and time consuming and Tae Ho says as much. He suggests that Yoon Do take the safer route but Yoon Do believes in going big or going home and when Tae Ho stresses how important the surgery is, Yoon Do points out that Tae Ho’s sounding scared and is attempting to transfer that fear onto him.
10. Ji Hong gets a taste of how Hye Jung feels about Mal Soon’s medical malpractice caused death
Yoon Do and Hye Jung are scrubbing up for their surgery when Ji Hong shows up. He mentions that he’d heard that Yoon Do will be doing a total removal of the tumor and warns him to play things safe. Yoon Do points out that Ji Hong is also giving him the play it safe speech and Ji Hong tells him to do a good job. Yoon Do replies that Ji Hong isn’t talking like a doctor and is making him feel pressured and Ji Hong calls him out for the rude remark, wondering if Yoon Do talks to all his patient’s guardians that way as well. Yoon Do corrects him that he doesn’t because the other guardians trust their doctors. He then asks Ji Hong if Ji Hong trusts him. Ji Hong stays silent for too long and Yoon Do tells him that he didn’t want to to take on the patient in the first place and so if Ji Hong wants him to stop, then he would stop. He walks away into his other surgery and Ji Hong sighs, whilst Hye Jung looks like she wants to offer Ji Hong comfort and she doesn’t know what to say. Next thing we see, Yoon Do’s in surgery (not Chairman Hong’s though, but his other patient) and Hye Jung who is assisting him in that surgery as well tells him that Ji Hong’s just scared of the surgery going wrong which is the same thing Yoon Do’s scared of: of the surgery going wrong and him getting blamed for it. It’s why he’s bluffing about the surgery. Yoon Do replies that he isn’t scared and Hye Jung reiterates that he shouldn’t be scared because she will be assisting and she will do such a great job at it that he will have no need to be scared. Yoon Do comments on her being full of herself and Hye Jung doesn’t denying it, stating that when you grow up in a poor environment being full of your self helps you live a better life. After the surgery, Yoon Do meets with Ji Hong who admits to having checked up on Yoon Do and states that Yoon Do’s talented. He then repeats Yoon Do’s question of whether Ji Hong trusts him and Ji Hong admits that he trusts Yoon Do as a doctor but as the patient’s guardian, he will kill Yoon Do should anything go wrong in the surgery. As Hye Jung watches the conversation from across the room, she tells us that when a doctor becomes the guardian of a loved one, he too is just a weak human.
Character I wanted to bitchslap:
No one in this episode.
Headache inducing moment:
Because all I could think was, Chi Hyun would go tell Myung Hoon and then Myung Hoon would realize who Hye Jung is and what she wants to do, and would then go out of his way to block any chances of her finding out the truth. And then the next thing we know, it will be Beautiful Gong Shim all over again, with us knowing the truth and the characters floundering in the dark till the last episode. Thank heavens that didn’t happen because I was just about ready to have faint from the worrying.
This episode’s a Cinnamon Sour. It’s delicious, utterly delicious with the progress that Ji Hong’s making with Hye Jung and how sweet Ji Hong and Chairman Hong’s relationship is. The glimpse of Ji Hong’s past that we’re given is also delicious as we realize that Ji Hong wasn’t always so happy and sunny. There was a period when he’d been weighed down and closed off and now we really do understand his insistence on love opening up Hye Jung. It’s because he’s been her in the past and he knows how much different and happier her life can be should she let love in. The deliciousness though, comes with that unexpected ache with Chairman Hong’s illness and we realize that Ji Hong is just like Hye Jung: neither of them wanting to lose yet one more person that they’ve grown to love. But I also find it satisfying because it’s a chance for Ji Hong to understand Hye Jung’s perspective and why she’s so focused on finding the truth behind Mal Soon’s surgery gone wrong because if Ji Hong can threaten to kill Yoon Do should the surgery go badly, then he should now have an idea why Hye Jung is so fixated on learning the truth.
