Lucky Romance Episode 8 Recap



So what’s the story so far? Sim Bo Nui (Hwang Jung Eum) is desperate to save her little sister Bo Ra. When she consulted a shaman, he tells her that she must sleep with a man born in the year of the tiger. While she’s trying to find one, her project for virtual reality was bought by Zeze factory, whose CEO, Je Soo Ho (Ryoo Joon Yeol) is born in the year of the tiger. Through a stipulation in the copyright contract, Bo Nui is hired into the company and she gets him to agree to date her for 3 weeks if she signs his contract. Though Bo Nui is nervous about everything, Soo Ho has a trust issue due to his upbringing and broken relationship with Han Seol Hee (Lee Chung Ah) in college. Soo Ho figures out that it has something to do with her superstitions, and accuses her of using him, which she denies but he won’t listen to her side. Finally, Soo Ho finds out about Bo Ra, and his heart is moved. Soo Ho finally spends the night following Bo Nui around, after another failed attempt to sleep with a tiger. She goes through all of the steps to quit but makes it seem more like a suicide. Meanwhile, Gun Wook (Lee Soo Hyuk) is looking for his father and secretly in love with Bo Nui.

The two men get out of the hospital, and Gun Wook tells Soo Ho that he trust Bo Nui not to make a rash decision. Soo Ho tells him that he’s a coward, and  thought Gun Wook tries to claim that Bo Nui tried to save Bo Ra she reminds him that it’s exactly those superstitions that brought this about. After some harsh words, they  split up.

We see Bo Nui at the river bank. Soo Ho starts running around that location looking for her. Gun Wook tries calling her but her phone is off. Soo Ho re-reads her letter in his car (Which I’m pretty sure he left on his desk in his office.) and mutters about how she wasn’t going to give up.

Bo Nui is kneeling by the river the next morning. She sets sail a paper boat with Bo Ra’s name on it. She prays that her parents look after Bo Ra and promises to follow after.

The men meet up outside the apartment building when Bo Nui passes. Though Gun Wook wants to go talk with her Soo Ho stops him. He tells him that she’s back so that’s enough and they should let her rest.

Bo Nui gets back home and finally turns on her phone. She sees missed calls, but the only she care about is the nurse. She’s told to come to the hospital right away. She inquires about Bo Ra and is told that her finger moved. She runs to the hospital and gets given the news that her sisters started to regain reactions. She is thrilled about the news and leaves.

Gun Wook is working out and staring at his phone. He tells her to just come back because he won’t stay still. She calls him and tells him that Bo Ra woke up and she’ll tell him that details when she gets home. Gun Wook offer to go right then but Bo Nui hung up on him.

Soo Ho is in his office pacing and contemplates calling her. He decided not to but when he throws his phone it calls by accident. He tries to cancel the call before it goes through but fails. When he hears someone arrive he believes in Bo Nui but it’s just the delivery guy. He tries to save face but fails and everyone ask Dal Nim if things with Bo Nui didn’t end well.

Bo Nui goes to see the shaman and thanks him. When she confesses that she didn’t catch a tiger she recounts what happened the night of the full moon. She realises that she actually did spend a night with a tiger. She thanks him and promises to bring Bo Ra with her when she’s awake. After she leaves the Shaman prays for her to be protected.

Dal Nim (Lee Cho Hee) comes to see Ryang Ha (Jung Sang Hoon) and asks if Soo Ho has come by. He starts teasing her and finally she leaves after calling him a bunch of hateful things. She finally finds Soo Ho outside going over some documents. Dal Nim asks Soo Ho to try and convince Bo Nui to stay. She tells him that the day of the final interview 2 years prior is when her sister had the accident. She tells him that she changed after the accident, and once she started working at Zeze she seemed to calm down. Dal Nim is worried about what will happen if she doesn’t work at Zeze.

Dal Nim and Soo Ho meet up with Bo Nui in the hall and Soo Ho tells her to come in. She tells Dal Nim the good news before meeting with Soo Ho. He inquires to where she was the night before when she tells him the Han river, he starts asking how far she’ll continue being a fool. HE admits that he keeps thinking about her and it’s driving him crazy. She tells him that Bo Ra woke up. She thanks him because that she did.

The employees are talking about Bo Nui and wonders what is going on. Someone admits that she wants her to be reprimanded just once. However, one person bets that she’ll be back.

Bo Nui explains that since she spent the night at his house, Bo Ra woke up and is getting better. She tells him that she’ll disappear from his sight, and he tells her that she can’t do that. He explains that there will be a lot of expenses that will start piling up not that she’s awake. He tells her to stop trying to quit, and that it’s a bad habit. She asks is she heard right that he thinks about her, and he tells her it’s true so she should stay in his line of sight. He admits that he wastes time thinking about what she could be doing when she’s out of his sight.  He tells her that he’s banning resignation letters, absences and not being able to contact her. He sends her home to rest, and she thanks him again before she leaves. He is thrilled that Bo Ra is awake.

Bo Nui gives Dal Nim the background. Dal Nim asks if anything happened between Bo Nui and Soo Ho and she tells her that nothing did they just slept because she was drunk. Dal Nim admits to having thought that they were secretly dating, and Bo Nui tells her that wasn’t the case. Dal Nim hugs Bo Nui against her protests.

When Dal Nim comes back upstairs she tells them that Bo Nui is back at work the following day. They find it odd that it’s the first time the Soo Ho stopped someone from resigning, and it’s out of character.

Soo Ho is going over some documents when he thinks back over Bo Nui’s words. (Also I want his keyboard) He smiles to himself before re-centring and opening a cat scan on his computer

He goes to get coffee and he’s still smiling, Ryang ha asks if something is wrong with him because of the smile. Finally, Seol Hee comes and it doesn’t dampen his mood. He tells Ryang Ha he’s leaving and Seol Hee follows. They go to the bike rack and she forgot her extra shoes up in the office. He tells her that she should go get them before leaving. She catches up with him, wearing her heels. She reminisces and he corrects her date again. She topples over. He stops and has this aspirated look on his face.

He comes back with medicine and she asks him to do it. He tells her that her bull-headedness hasn’t changed, and she mentions that he use to like that about her. She tells him that thinking about someone and worrying about them is liking them. He finishes treating her hand and tells her not to ride the bike before leaving. He links all of the pieces of information together and it adds up to him liking her.

Without thinking he bikes to her apartment, and after a mild freak out wonders if she ate. He buys her some porridge and follows her back home smiling because she’s so happy. He sees her meet with Gun Wook who hugs her and decides against giving her the porridge.

Gun Wook brings out a cake and they make a wish that Bo Ra fully wakes up and they find Gun Wook’s father. They blow out the candle and Gun Wook offeres for them to go see Bo Ra the following day. When he asks she confirms that she is done with the tiger business and should be nothing more that a nuisance for Soo Ho.

The next day at the office everyone is inquiring if Bo Nui is dating, which she promises she’s not. Soo Ho asks suddenly who’s going to the motion capture with Gary that afternoon, and gets informed the Bo Nui is. He asks if she’s going alone, and they confirm it since she and Gun Wook are friends. Bo Nui hands Soo Ho a jar of salt silently and though he tells her off about the charm he still takes it.

Soo Ho sits at his desk and mutters about Bo Nui smiling at anyone and frustrating him. All the while he’s arranging the jar of salt and cactus on his desk to look just right.

Bo Nui and Gun Wook are at the motion capture facility and is having a hard time so Seol Hee comes up with an idea and has Bo Nui stand in front of him. When he has a question Bo Nui tells him that it’s a dating scene and tells him to look at the camera and say the words sweetly. He directs the words to Bo Nui and they find it perfect.

Seol Hee is talking about fortunes with Bo Nui and she finds out that in the olden days having a flower, peach tree and the sign of death in her four pillars was a mark of a bad woman. When Gun Wook inquiries and Seol Hee tells him what she discovered, he confirms that it’s accurate.  Bo Nui consoles her by telling her that now they’re related to pretty charming and popular women. Seol Hee starts going off about how Soo Ho didn’t recognise what he had before she stops and confirms that Bo Nui new about their past. She is certain that she is fated with him since they met up so many years later. Gun Wook asks if they made up because he was pissed for 10 years and he assumes they did because she’s smiling.

After Gun Wook has finished changing into the motion sensor suit they head back out to find Soo Ho there. Seol Hee makes a comment about him coming to see her but plays it off as a joke. She shows him her hand and when he asks if it’s gotten better she admits to having not taken off the band-aid.

They flip the filming to a date seen and the director asks Bo Nui to play the part as his girlfriend. Seol Hee puts up a fuss even though Gun Wook is happy. Soo Ho comes up with a reason about how Bo Nui can’t model so he steps in. They start teasing them about matching so well and while walking around the set Gun Wook ask if he has to go so far.

Bo Nui goes home  to work on the files for the next morning.

Soo Ho is at home and he smiles to himself thinking about Bo Nui. He suddenly starts to wonder what is wrong with him. He pulls up an article about how to know if a man like a woman. He ticks off everything on the list and gets frustrated.

When they get upstairs, they find out the Se Young is being brought to the hospital. They believe it’s because of the water that she was drinking.

Soo Ho and Bo Nui continue with the meeting with Gary anyways. When Soo Ho is asked about his parents he asks for a private audience with Seol Hee and walks out of the room. Bo Nui asks what’s wrong with Soo Ho because he was mean. She leaves the room and he follows asking what was so mean. He tells her to follow him to the roof, and she wonders why.

Seol Hee goes over the contract and tells Gun Wook that there are no specific clauses and they should be able to negotiate. Gun Wook finally tells her that he came to Korea to find his father, and he doesn’t want his father or how bad of a son he is to be in the game. Seol Hee calls Soo Ho and tells him that they should stop the meeting for the day and that they will contact him in a few days. She offers Gun Wook to take the day to just talk.

Soo Ho and Bo Nui are on the roof. Soo Ho tells her that Seol Hee has put the scenario on hold for a bit. He tells her that he doesn’t understand, and if he can’t then the players can’t. The game was to take a look at Gary’s life what is always hidden. Bo Nui tells him that there is always a reason to hide things. Soo Ho tells her to convince him. Bo Nui tells him that he doesn’t answer his mother’s calls, and though she has him in mind when she calls all he ever does is hit the reject button. She admits that his mother is the one who asked her to put the talisman in his book. She mentions that when someone becomes too comfortable they don’t know how to be grateful, and she admits to thinking about her parents every day and wishing they were alive.
