Beautiful Gong Shim Episode 12 Recap



What’s happened so far? Gong Shim (Minah) rents out the rooftop room to Ahn Dan Tae (Namgung Min), who is a pro-bono lawyer. Through him she meets Suk Joon Soo (On Joo Wan) whom she becomes infatuated with but her sister, Gong Mi (Seo Hyo Rim), is also in love with him. Dan Tae gets brought into searching for Joon Pyo by Grandmother Suk (Jung Hye Sun) as a favour. All the while Director Yeom (Kim Kyung Ok) is trying to figure out how much Dan Tae knows because he’s the one who kidnapped Joon Pyo. Slowly he starts piecing together his past and what could have happened. This leads Dan Tae to believing that his father murdered Joon Pyo. However it turned out that Dan Tae has been living a lie his entire life and when his father tries to tell him what happened he’s attacked. Now Dan Tae must find out the truth and all the only clue he has is the Star Group executive badge. Dan Tae is getting close to finding who attacked his father. However on Gong Shim’s front her affections have turned toward Dan Tae, and at the end  of last episode she confesses her feeling for him. On with today’s episode.

We have to rewatch Gong Shim’s very touching confession to Dan Tae, and her heart being broken all over again. Sadly we also have to watch Dan Tae’s heart break while rejecting her. Joon Soo goes to see Dan Tae on the roof while he’s still trying to regroup from rejecting her. Dan Tae apologises to Joon Soo ad asks to meet another day, because he suddenly feels under the weather. Joon Soo agrees and leaves looking sad and confused.

Both Gong Shim and Dan Tae look horrible the next day, having not really slept. Gong Shim goes shopping at the market and even the shop keepers can tell that something is up. When she’s walking back she bumps into Dan Tae, he tries to help her with the bags, but she walks past him. (It’s almost painful watching these two) She gets home and sits in a chair at the convenience store.

Joon Soo thinks about Dan Tae words when he rejected Gong Shim. He seems sad not only because Gong Shim confesses to Dan Tae, but also because he broke her heart. Dan Tae tries to call Gong Shim to no avail. He starts talking with the cleaning crew and puts on his happy demeanour for them, though he rejects their offer to go out that night. Sadly for him Joon Soo sees him right then and thinks that he’s just fine after rejecting Gong Shim.

Joon Soo comes up to him and tells him that it’s surprising. When he asks what, Joon Soo mentions how close he is to the cleaning crew. (But we know what it’s really about) Joon Soo leaves and Dan Tae asks him about his bag. He blows up at Dan Tae (as much as Joon Soo does) when he asks if he’s really inquiring the badge or the bag, Dan Tae admits it’s the badge that he’s interested in. Joon Soo pushes him to find out why and agrees that it must be because of something that he can’t talk about, before leaving.

Gong Shim vents all of her frustration into cooking. He mother tells her that she’s made to many side dishes, and she tells her not to worry because she’ll eat it. She continues to ignore Dan Tae’s calls. Shes starts moving out some of Gong Mi’s clothes and starts to make her room fit for someone to live in. When her father asks about  how much she’s moving she tells him that she’s expecting a bed to come the following day, and asks him to put it together for her, like he did for Gong Mi. She works hard to empty out her room that day. She gets notifications reminding her that there is a reunion that evening. While she’s looking at her phone Joon Soo calls her. They agree to meet up the following evening for supper.

Gong Shim goes to her reunion, and all her classmates wonder why she came since she’s never come in the past. She gets really drunk and interrupts her classmate’s proposal. Dan Tae is walking home when he sees a little boy looking for something. The kid tells him that he’s looking for an older sister who’s wearing a wig, and Dan Tae recognises it as Gong Shim. He hands the kid a lollipop and tells him to go home because it’s late, and he’ll find Gong Shim. He finds her almost right away, and she asks how he found her.

They sit down on on a bench, and he tries to get her to go home. She tells him that she thought of all of his flaws the day before because she was mad. She starts listing them, but when she gets to the 4th one she stops and puts her list away. He tries to get her to go home. She stops him and asks why he doesn’t like her. She lists a bunch of reasons, and he tells her that that’s not why. She keeps giving him really good reasons as to why he shouldn’t like her, and starts apologizing for everything. She asks him for his reason for rejecting her and when he goes to tell her she kisses him and requests that he never tells her the reason. She runs away while Dan Tae is still in shock over the kiss. She runs away without looking back and Dan Tae watches her.
