Uncontrollably Fond -Review-



I know that this drama has mixed opinions on it. The story is a basic formula. Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) has been in love with No Eul (Bae Suzy) since high school. He’s since found out that he’s dying. (This is not a spoiler you find out in the first 10 mins) He goes out of his wy to try and find her and have a brief relationship with her before he dies. However, due to her tragic past, No Eul has changed from who he once remembers but he still loves her dearly. Because he doesn’t know how to express himself, he teases her to get a rise from her. Will they get together? Well, you’ll have to watch it to find out.

This show got bashed and I don’t know why. Is it a great show? No. Is it a horrible show? No. It’s a solid middle of the road ok show. Was there chemistry between Kim Woo Bin and Bae Suzy? Yes at times. Was there more chemistry between Lim Ju Hwan and Bae Suzy? Totally. Was I rooting for it to go the same way as Absolute Boyfriend? Completely.

It’s a cute little drama that you can shut your brain off to, because if you don’t somethings just won’t make sense. I still enjoyed it, but I don’t think there will be a second watch for me.


Uncontrollably Fond Episode 19 Recap



Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) is sitting in his living room watching the news report of his diagnosis. Kook Young (Jung Soo Kyo) comes in  and turns off the TV. Jon Young reveals he didn’t know he was loved so much and he tells Kook Young to take care of Pororo. Kok Young tells him that he’s not dying tomorrow, but Joon Young reminds him that he’s dying soon. Kook Young is suddenly overwhelmed. He makes an excuse to get out of the room and that apologises to Joon Young for calling him an asshole as he didn’t know about his condition.

Kook Young goes outside to find Man Ok (Jang Hee Ryung) and Namgoog (Park Soo Young) crying. Man Ok accusing him of crying and he tells them he hasn’t been. Namgoog tells them to no go in if they plan on crying in front of Joung Young. Nomgoog heads inside and Kook Young explodes about it not being fair that he has to deal with a life-threatening disease. Namgoog chastises him for bringing it up after he just calmed down.

No Eul (Bae Suzy) calls him to meet and he goes. Once there he is transported back to his college days. A little girl comes over and asks if he’s Shin Joo Young and tells him that he’s a celebrity. He tells her he’s not and send her off to play. He notices No Eul and remembers the incident in the cafeteria. He goes over and praises her. He uses her as his pillow and the little kids come back. No Eul assure them that it’s not Joon Young the top star. They leave and she looks down fondly at him.

Hyun Joon (Yu Oh Seong) is staring blankly at the article about Joon Young when a secretary comes in and tells him that Ji Tae (Lim Ju Hwan) was moved out of the ICU as he has stabilised.

Ha Ru (Ryu Woh) is struggling to stop her tears for her brother. Eun Soo (Jung Sun Kyung) reminds her that he’s not in critical condition and will wake up soon. Ha Ru finds that it doesn’t make sense that he wasn’t following the traffic laws because he always did. Hyun Joon comes in and asks to be alone with Ji Tae. Eun Soo brings Ha Ru out of the room even though Ha Ru protests vocally about leaving her brother. Hyun Joon remembers the last conversation he had with Ji Tae as he looks down at his son. Ji Tae had revealed that at one point he really loved him even if they didn’t share a drop of blood. He admits doing things that he knew was wrong just to make them happy for fear of him leaving his mother. He blamed himself for how his parents turned out and he asked his father to stay by Eun So’s side while casting him out since he’s the one who when against him. Eun Soo’s phone rings and Hyun Joon picks it up without saying a word. Secretary Kim tells her about the dashcams of the other cars that recorded the chase and the accident. She asks what to do and Hyun Joon is appalled at what his wife did. Eun Woon comes back in and he passes the phone to her. Eun Soo confirms that she’s the one who stopped Ji Tae in order to protect him.

Joon Young wakes up and No Eul doesn’t know when his memory is. She teases like she did in college. He tells her to put up the footage of Jung Eun (Lim Ju Eun) and him on the TV. He wants her to live on happily since he’ll be gone first. He tells her that that’s what he wanted to tell her. She reminds him that she’s the one who called and the one who wanted to tell him something. She tells him that it’s not his fault about what happened to her it’s just happened that way. He starts to cry as does she.

Jung Sik (Choi Moo Sung) is tapping up the post-its left for Joon Young. Jon Young picks up one from a foreigner and chastises the grammar. He teases his uncle about the grammar in the letter and Jung Sik tries to hold in the tears. He asks where his mother is and finds out she’s in the kitchen.

He goes in and Young Ok (Jin Kyung) is peeling onions in the kitchen. Joon Young looks at his mother sadly. He goes ver and talks to her and finally removes the goggles. She chastises Deuk about still crying leaving Joon Young alone and feeling sad about hurting his mother. She cries and Jung Sik tells her to stop because of the customers. She leaves to be alone and Joon Young cries in the back store alone. (This is why he didn’t want to tell people.)

No Eul is walking home while remembering Joon Young telling her that she should make a world that she’s proud in and not to waste time. She arrives home and Sung Ho’s assistant wants to take her to see him. She tells him that he’ll take her whether she likes it or not. Hyun Joon arrives just then and apologises for being late for their plan.

No Eul sits across from Hyun Joon in his office. She tells him about Jung Eun’s confession and hands Joon Hyun the USB. She tells him to look it over and return it before the airing of it in 2 days time. She warns him that it’s her only copy and to not alter it in any way. She walks away.

Ji Tae wakes up and Eun Soo asks if he came to his senses. He calls to Gyo Chul, his secretary, and asks about Joon Young. He is told about the charges being dropped once everyone found out about his illness. He ignores his mother and continues to ask about Joon Young’s well-being.

Joon Young arrives home to find No Eul on his couch. He calls to her and she tells him about her issues and asks to stay there for a little while until people stop looking for her. He hears her mutter that she wants to go on a vacation too and he throws his keys at her. He asks if she’s willing to drive because he never fulfilled his promise to her.

Hyun Joon is in his office looking over the footage that Eul left with him. He can’t control his emotions when Joon Young is telling Jung Eun about his dream. He pulls out a cigarette but before he can light it he receives a call from Young Ok.

They meet up and she begs him to save her son. She mentions that he must know amazing doctors who could save him. He tries to comfort her but she tells him that she raised her son to be like who he used to be. To always listen to the victim and to not turn his back on anyone. This cuts Hyun Joon deeply as he’s turned about from his values. She admits that she feels like Joon Young is being punished for their sins. She asks Hyun Joon what she should do, but like her Hyun Joon is on the verge of tears.

No Eul and Joon Young arrive at a house. Eul asks where they were and he admits that it’s a house that he built to live in with her. He tells her to stay there for a bit and then go back. She tells him since he built the house for them they should live there for 500 years. They go shopping and enjoy the normal things in life. When she helps a group of ladies with a game Joon Young gets a call from Hyun Joon. He goes to meet his father but his memories seemed to have switched and he forgets about Eul.

Hyun Joon is changing when Eun So comes in. She asks when he arrived and he admits that it wasn’t too long ago. She asks him if he’s mad. He tells her that he has the right to be. He also mentions that since Ji Tae probably thinks that he’s behind the accident that they should leave it at that and warns her not to get caught. Hyun Joon is about to leave when he’s told that Sung Ho (Kim Byung Ok) was there.

Sung Ho gifts them ginseng for Ji Tae to eat to get better. He wants to bury the hatchet and recommends Hyun Joon for the promotion again. He also suggests a meeting between a nephew and Ha Ru. Eun Soo accepts but Hyun Joon remains silents.

Joon Young meets with Hyun Joon who is confused by his mannerisms. After Joon Young mentions the elections he asks him when the last time they met was. Joon Young reveals it was in high school and it clicks for Hyun Joon what’s going on. Joon Young starts complimenting him and telling him how much hope he has in him. This kills Hyun Joon and he starts to cry. He gets to have a glimpse of the kinds of person Joon Young once was and how he was ruined by him. Joon Young inquires about his health but he’s told that Hyun Joon is tired. He takes his leave and while going down the stairs he gets a notification for Jung Sik’s birthday. Someone bumps into his shoulder and he’s suddenly back in the present.

No Eul is at home when the ladies come to asks her to teach then Go stop. They ask where he husband was and she tells them he’s gone out but will be back. She seems to be having bad cramps when she calls Joon Young’s phone and Kook Young answers.

Namgoog takes the phone and No Eul admits that Joon Young was too sick to film the day she went. Namgoog threatens her and Kook Young mentions that he’s too mean to her. Kook Young apologises for being busy with a birthday party for Jung Sik. Joon Young tries to act normal when everyone else is acting sombre. He tries to tease them  about the sunglasses. They ask if Young Ok wasn’t coming and Jung Sik tells them she’s busy.  Namgoog starts t berate her and Jon Yiung tells him that she’s just freaked out.

While Joon Young tries to get everyone in the party spirit, Eul waits for him to come back to the house. When Jung Young tells his uncle to make a wish and asks if he can make a wish. He asks Jung Sik to take care of his mother after he’s gone. Jung Sik promises to take care of Young Ok so he doesn’t have to worry. Jung Yung promises to trust him and to not worry about her while he prepares to leave. Young Ok is sitting in his room crying. Kook Young hears the door bell and answers it.

Jik (Lee Seo Won) comes to see Joon Young and admits that Na Ri (Kim Min Young) is waiting outside because she can’t look at him right now. He tells him that Na Ri wants to apologise for two-timing him when they dated in the past. Joon Young pretends to be mad. Jik mentions that he used to be his hero in the past and when Joon Young mentions that past tense, Jik reveals that he finds him an ass now. He tells him that if he wants to become his hero again, he better find a way to survive because his father told him that people die because they’re lazy. Joon Young promises to try his best to survive. Jik asks where his sister is and when Joung is confused Jik mentions that he called her and she said she was with him. Jon Young is about to deny that and then suddenly remembers. He calls himself a crazy bastard.

Jung Eun goes to see Ji Tae and tells him that she’s going to the states with General Oh’s eldest son and will marry him if she can stand to be with him. She mentions that while his in the hospital that he’ll be reported for embezzling and be looked into. She doesn’t understand why be picked that path. He apologises for not stopping her from fleeing all those years ago. He tells that though she’ll get away with it, this time, she will pay asks she has lived a bad life. He asks her to leave so he can sleep.

Hyun Joon research Joon Young’s condition. But while looking out the window, he remembers that last conversation he had with the level headed Joon Young in contrast to the regressed Joon Young who had so much hope. He tries to steel himself but he recalls the video that No Eul left him. He calls Eul and asks what the real reason was that she left the USB with him. She tells him that it’s because she wanted him to see it first. He can’t believe what she left it with him becausknows knews what type of person he is. She tells him that she does know because he’s Joon Young’s father. He hands up and breaks down in tears.

Uncontrollably Fond Episode 18 Recap



Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) is getting ready when he gets a call from Ji Tae (Lim Ju Hwan). He wants him that he told Jung Eun (Lim Ju Eun) everything. He tells him that he’s stopped him from becoming human trash. Joon Young tells him that he’s the only one looking out for him. Ji Tae tells him to make sure he eats 3 meals a day and to take his medication. After an awkward silence, he hangs up. Joon Young calls him back and tells him that he’s going to make Jung Eun confess to the hit-and-run. He tells him that now his chances of success have dropped to 90% due to him. He tells him that if he fails then h must keep his promise for revenge. Ji Tae asks why he’s telling him this because he could ruin his plan. He tells him that he’s the only person he could think of telling. If he wants to ruin his plan he won’t hate him for it.

After the meeting with Jung Eun, Joon Young wires his house with cameras. He checks to makes sure that everything works before called PD Joon and asks for No Eul (Bae Suzy) to come instead.

No Eul stands on the pier and looks at the video that Jon Young took. Joon Young tells Jung Eun about the accident he caused No Eul all those years back while trying to protect Hyun Joon (Yu Oh Seong). She tells him that it’s ok because people die when it’s their time regardless. He asks if that’s how she’s gotten over it after all this time. She pretends to be confused by this. He rattles off the date of the accident and all the information. He tells her that he was trying to get her to confess but he has enough evidence to get you convicted. She freaks out and reveals that her father did cover it up and she’s going to make sure her father can do it again. She realises that he played her and he confesses that he had no evidence but just got some. He tells No Eul that Jung Eun is the one who killed her father and he’s the one that stole the USB. He tells her that this was his one and only entry on his bucket list.  Jung Eun freaks out before leaving and No Eul is very whelmed.

Jung Eun comes out and finds No Eul missing.

Joon Young looks at the empty table and gets a call from Namgoog (Park Soo Young) telling him to run. Kook Young (Jung Soo Kyo) tells him there is no need. Then Namgoog tells him that he should not say anything to the police until the lawyers arrive. The police show up and arrests him under the suspicion of use of illegal substances. (Unless Korea is way backwards, I don’t think that’s how that works. You can’t arrest someone because of an article with no evidence.) He gets taken away and Jung Eun looks on helplessly.

Secretary Kang tells Ji Tae that Hyun Joon was that one who orchestrated the charges not his mother. He asks how that’s possible with no evidence. Secretary Kang tells him that that’s the power his father yields. Ji Tae can’t believe he’d do that to his own son.

Hyung Joon asks if there is any soju at home because he would love it with a nice kimchi stew. Eun Soo (Jung Sun Kyung) asks if he’s the one who is behind the Joon Young story. He brings her to bed to sit down. He tells her how Joon Young is his child that he abandoned years prior. He told his brother to chase Young Ok (Jin Kyung) away even though he knew she was having his child. He admits that he didn’t want to loose everything because of Joon Young.

Ji Tae listens to the conversation from beyond the door. (You have a lot of money, why did you cheap out on the doors.)  Jung Eun calls Ji Tae for help but he hangs up on her.

The police officer interrogates Joon Young. He starts laughing because of the hilarity of the accusation. The officer rattles off celebrities and even the ‘his’ meth dealer. (Seriously just do a blood test.) He grabs the paper and mentions that it looks like he simply wrote down what someone told him, then comments on his spelling.

Jung Sik (Choi Moo Sung) is putting up a sign when Young Ok asks why they should lose out on a day’s paycheck. Man Ok (Jang Hee Ryung) comes out and asks to close up because all that anyone is talking about is Joon Young’s scandal.  Young Ok tells her to educate the clients and tells then that Joon Young isn’t the time to do it and tells them to throw out the sign. They go into the restaurant and Young Ok talks with the clients on how the rumours aren’t true

No Eul goes into the restaurant she used to frequent with Ji Tae. When Bong Sook (Kim Jae Hwa) sees her come in sh e send a text. Bong Sook tries to move her over to another table and then asked if something happened. When No Eul confirms then she tells her she’ll leave her alone. She about to tell No Eul about Joon Young’s scandal and No Eul asks her to not mention him. Another table mentions him and she asks them to lower the volume. A new post about Joon Young comes out and No Eul asks is there nothing else to talk about. Bong Sook tells her that he’s a big topic and should leave if she doesn’t want to hear about him. No Eu l goes to leave and Ji Tae is arriving. He tells her they need to talk.

He apologises for the shock of finding out Joon Young is Hyun Joon’s son. She is hurt that she’s the last one to find out. She asks if it’s fun toying with her. He tells her that it’s not it and Joon Young was hurting more than then. She turns to walk away when he tells her that Joon Young is being investigated by the police for drug use. He tells her that he’ll be found guilty because that’s how his father has planned it. No Eul doesn’t care and asks what he’s expecting from her. He tells her that he should have left it alone and looked the other way. Ji Tae tells her that he can’t understand why he would stack the rest of his life on finding her the truth and he doesn’t know how he can continue being a coward. He tells her that it’s ok if she hates him for the rest of her life but he asks that she lets Joon Young off the hook.

No Eul arrives back and Na Ri (Kim Min Young) calls to her. She tells her that Jik is there and she’s told him everything. She tells her that a situation came up and she couldn’t not tell him anymore. Na Ri tells her to text her when they are done fighting it out.

No Eul goes in and Jik (Lee Seo Won) starts yelling at her about not telling him about their father’s hit-and-run and about the threats on his life. No Eul tries to tell him that she didn’t want to burden him. He accuses her of making him a fool. She tells him about everything that comes with the burden of knowing and asks him how she was supposed to do that to him and force him to live like as she did. Jik holds his sister and tells her it’s his fault.

The next day, Jik meets with Ha Ru (Ryu Woh) and tells her that he likes men. (Nam Ja in Korean) She asks about this Nam Ja girl and he has to elaborate. She thinks it’s a joke but he assures her it’s true. That why he has a hard time touching her and why Na Ri freaked out on her. She gets up and not matter what he says she yells at him. She asks him to delete her number from his phone and he complies. As she leaves she calls a friend and tells them that they should go on a date. When she hangs up she starts crying and Jik watchings from inside. Jik Sits back down and starts to cry in the café.

.Jik returns home and asks if Eul is still sleeping. Na Ri confirms that she is and she can’t believe that she’s been sleeping for 15 hours. Na Ri asks if he’s broken up with Ha Ru and he confirms that he has. He asks Na Ri if she ate and then suggests that they go to eat while Eul sleeps.

No Eul dreams of all of the times that she’s been with Joon Young. A Single tear leaks out while she sleeps.

Young Ok screams and Jung Sik about the kimchi. He apologises for the mixup. She looks at him and slaps her face. She tells him that she must be crazy because her son was taken away and here she is complaining about the smallest things. He admits that she has been acting like a crazy person.  She tells him that she’s going to see Joon Young  and he tells her that he’ll get the car.

They arrive and there is a press conference. Namgoog tells them that Joon Young didn’t do any drugs. Kook Young sneaks out and tells them to look like they’re doing anything. He tells them that Joon Young is fine and visitation hours are over. If they’re found to be there then it’ll be blown out of proportions.

Hyun Joon meets with Joon Young and tells him that he seems to be in a bit of a pinch. Hyun Joon reveals that it’s his doing and not his wife’s. He tells him that once he’s out of there he should retire and leave the country. Hyun Joon offers him money, but Joon Young reminds him he has his own. He asks what will happen if he says no. Hyun Joon tells him that he must let it come to that. Joon Young mentions that he has a lot of power and Hyun Jon reveals he didn’t a lot of nasty things to get the power he wields. Joon Young inquiries about him casting his mother aside because he didn’t feel like she left by her own violations. Joon Young takes his father’s silence as a yes. He tries to get him to go out of the country but Joon Young tells him that it will be the last time he will call him father and will keep the fact that he’s his father hidden out of embarrassment. Hyun Joon is hurt, but just then Joon Young collapses.

Screenshot 2016-09-01 13.29.31.png

No Eul starts at her phone at all the missed calls. She replays the memory of the confession at the house in her mind. She finally answers Jung Eun’s call.

Eul goes to see Jung Eun at her restaurant. (Not the smartest move) Eul mentions the lack of staff and Jung Eun tells her that she wanted to talk to her alone. She lays out some cake and coffee. She tells her that she’s not the culprit for her father’s hit and run case. Eul tells her that she say the culprit’s face and is surprised that it took so long for her to recognise her. Jung Eun hands Eul money but not as an admission of her guilt. No Eul takes the money and tells her that she’ll but the video on tv and hands the money over the police. She asks if she thinks it’s possible for a freelancer PD. Eul reminds her that you don’t have to win every battle. She tells her that Jon Young will also be affected. Eul tells her that if someone commits a crime they have to pay, regardless who they are. She stands and tells Jung Eun that she didn’t even touch her coffee. She grabs the tablecloth and dumps it on her before leaving.

Hyun Joon is sitting at home thinking deeply when Eun Soon brings him herbal medicine. Ji Tae comes in and tells his father that it looks like he can’t stop his parents on his own. He asks his father if there really isn’t any way for him to stop them. His father admits that there doesn’t seem to be a way. In front of his parents, Ji Tae calls Gyu Chul and has him gets some reporters ready to tell them something about his parents. He tells his father to root for him to win before walking out.

A news article breaks  about Joon Young being diagnosed with brainstem glioma and told he has very little time to live. He’s kept it a secret from everyone including his family. He has to cancel all of his engagements while he battles the disease. Jung Shik sits down and absorb what the news anchor was talking about on the tv.

At the company Namgoog is answering the calls while Kook Young and Man Ok try to come to terms with the news. Man Ok starts to cry and Namgoog is forced to do their work. He asks the caller if Joon Young really has a fatal disease.

Screenshot 2016-09-01 14.00.10.png

Na Ri is at home when she reads the article about Joon Young. She scrolls through the articles in shock. A single tear runs down her cheek.

Jik overhears some classmates talking about Joung Young’s diagnosis and tries to inquire more about it.

Ha Ru reads about the diagnosis and starts to cry, by herself, in her room.

Ji Tae is driving and tells his secretary that he’d be there in. He notices the tail and does some defensive driving to loose them. However, that leads him right into the way of a truck and his car is t-boned.

No Eul is sitting on a bench when Joon Young comes over and tells her that she did a good job. He lays down on his lap and tells her about his tests. He asks for her to be his pillow for 10 minutes. She thinks back to the same occurrence all those years ago when he was in college. The doctor told her that it was call delirium, it’s when you mix up the past with the present. He told her to just let it happen.

Uncontrollably Fond Episode 16 Recap



We get walked through all of the times that Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) spoke to the security cameras. The final recording was of him telling the camera that his condition has gotten worse and he doesn’t have much time left.

Jung Eun goes and washes her face. She comes back and tries to hit him but he catches her hand. He tells her that maybe next time she can remove her engagement ring for the kiss because he isn’t as generous to accept a woman still wearing the ring.  (I do like the ring.) Kook Young (Jung Soo Kyo) comes and notices Jung Eun there. He accuses him of doing something and asks if he’s forgotten who she is. He walks away while Kook Young is cursing him out.

She chastises him and tells him that even though she looks like a player she’s faithful. She stops gets embarrassed. He lays down some ground rules, like no touching until he’s graduated and he wants to get permission from their families to date.

Inside the house, Joon Young struggles to the bathroom. He manages to get there and take his pills before collapsing in the hallway where No Eul finds him. (They still look like tic-tacs to me.) He comes to with her wiping his face. She tells him that she contemplated calling 911 but it would have been bad if it got out. She tells him to go to the hospital but he throws her phone. She begs him to get treatment but he doesn’t want to hear any of it. He drags her out and she swears that she will tell everyone that he’s sick. He tells her to do as she pleases and pushes her out.

Uncontrollably Fond Episode 15 Recap



We rewatch the altercation between Jung Eun (Lim Ju Eun) and No Eul (Bae Suzy). No Eul meets with Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) at the elevator. He voice over tells us that she had a dream of meeting with Joon Young at a moment where she was feeling so useless. She wipes away her tears and gets on the elevator and he steps out. Joon Young stands there for a second and when the doors started to close he lets go of his presents and stops it. He steps back in and takes her hand. He asks jokingly if her jacket ate everything that she was supposed to eat. He asks if she’s hungry. She stays quite but her monologue tells use that she believes that it’s a dream and everything will go away once she wakes up.

Joon Young makes her pasta and she stares at him as he tries to make her eat it. He takes a bite and then tells her not to eat it. She does anyways and her monologue tells us that it was the first time he cooked for her and even though she knows it’s a dream she couldn’t not eat it. She asks for some kimchi and he goes to get it for her but instead gives her a kiss. The Monologue reiterates that it’s a dream and it makes he feel so lonely.

They play Jenga and when she looses she runs away from the consequences. Joon Young ends up faking difficulty breathing to catch her. He doesn’t end up flicking her but kisses her forehead instead. She begs for morning not too come. She threatens that if anyone tries to wake her from the dream then she will get her revenge on them.

Back to reality and No Eul gets on to the elevator and though it kills him Jon Young doesn’t look back.

Ji Tae (Lim Ju Hwan) tells Jung Eun that she can make him pay but to leave No Eul alone. She tells him that she will kill her with her own hands. He tells her to stop and she asks if he thinks that she can’t. He asks her if once wants enough. She doesn’t follow and he asks if playing with someone’s life once wasn’t enough for her. She should never joke about it. He goes to leave but he grabs on to him. She tries to get him to stay for her birthday, but it takes Joon Young to step in for him to be able to leave.

Ji Tae leaves and because the elevators are so slow he takes the stairs. He calls her but No Eul is lost in her world and she doesn’t answer.

Joon Young hands Jung Eun a pair of shoes and a bouquet. The shoes were to replace te ones she damaged at his house. She asks him why he’s being so nice to her since he’s told her that he’s not interested in seducing her. He tells her to not plan any ideas of revenge but rather show him what he’s missing. He tells her to try and fall for himself and leave Ji Tae behind, or better yet seduce him.

Joon Young is in his car when Ji Tae calls him. He asks him what he’s plotting getting close to Jung Eun. He tells him that he’s trying to help him. He tells him that people should be together when they can and tells him that a few good deeds before he dies won’t kill him. Ji Tae tries to tell him off and he tells him that if he appreciates it to buy him a drink one day and he hangs up.

Na Ri (Kim Min Young) comes in and chastises No Eul for leaving everything outside and they can’t even return it or sell it. Na Ri wants No Eul to give back the 1 billion won even if she has to take more money from the loan sharks. She tells her she’s not going to and she threatens to tell Jik (Lee Seo  Won) about it. She tells her she can’t, and Na Ri warns her to return the money before Jik finds out. Na Ri goes to check the door after the doorbell rings but No Eul refuses to see Ji Tae so he leaves a coat on the doorstep for her before leaving.

The part-timer gives Man Ok (Jang Hee Ryung) a box of lipsticks. She tells him that he didn’t have to and then tries them on. Jung Sik (Choi Moo Sung) sees what going on and Man Ok grabs the part-timer’s hand and runs away. (I really got to figure out what his name is.)

Kook Young (Jung Soo Kyo) is working when he overhears some customers talking about Joon Young. He tells himself to not get involved with them as he’s no longer Joon Young’s manager. Young Ok (Jin Kyung) steps in and tells the customers that she gave birth to Jon young and she’s surprised that he got everything from plastic surgery. Joon Young comes in a tells his mother that she shouldn’t be yelling at the customers. He sits down and talks with the customers. When the customers tell him that they didn’t say that, Kook Young comes over and tells Joon Young every other thing they said. Young Ok chastises him for called the customers bastards. Joon Young tells Kook Young that he needs to stay at the restaurant for a bit longer and leaves.

Joon Young gives his mum a lift and asks her if she can prick his finger because he’s been feeling ill for the last few days and none of the medicine is working.

One inside she is patting his arm and asks if he’s lost weight. He admits that he’s been feeling fat so he’s on a diet. She yells at him that he’s crazy because he’s just skin and bones. He tells her to just tell him that she loves him. She’s lost and he tells her to stop pretending to be mad when she’s not and tell him her true feelings. She brushes off his hands and stabs his finger hard.

Joon Young is driving home when he thinks of his mother’s parting words. She tells him that Kook Young has told her that he’s being terrible to No Eul. She tells him that Hyun Joon (Yu Oh Seong) has no ties to that family so she doesn’t want him to stop doing what he wants because of him. He thanks her for telling him.

He pulls into the drive to finds No Eul sitting there. She stands when he pulls in but he doesn’t look in her direction. She is about to ring the doorbell when Joon Young opens the door.

No Eul steps into the house and mentions how hot it is. She coughs and Joon Young turns to look at her briefly.

No Eul is sitting at the table and Jon young brings her a cup of tea. She tells him that she wants to come and tells him her last goodbye She tells him that since they did date she should do it properly. However, she didn’t want to ask why they are breaking up. Joon Young doesn’t say anything so she continues to ramble on by herself. She tells him that he should compensate her for the wasted time and requests for 10 million won. She tells him that she was going to ask for a loan but that way they would have to see each other again and this way she’ll be too embarrassed to see him again. He tells her ok and asks for a moment. He goes into his room and fights back tears while No Eul steels herself at the table.

Joon Young comes out with a chequebook and writes her a blank check. He tells her to write whatever about she wants and when she asks if she can have his fortune, he tells her she can. She tells him that she’s not a thug and will only right 10 million won. She tells him she’s leaving and tells him to live a good life, before calling him an evil bastard and leaving. She leaves crying and he sits at the table. He says out loud to no one that he’s sure that he’ll get his punishment when he gets sent to hell.

Jik is at the library thinking about Ha Ru (Kyu Woh) kissing him. He’s read the books and even consulted an online forum. When Ha Ru calls he shuts off the phone.

Ha Ru can’t believe that he’s gone silent. She tries to make herself feel better by telling herself that he must have been taken back from her sudden kiss but suddenly gets pissed at him for ignoring her. The maid tells Ha Ru that her breakfast is in her room because Eun Soo (Jung Sun Kyung) has a guest.

No Eul sits across from Eun Soo and slides an envelope across to her. She tells her that it’s the 1 billion won she gave her. She tells Eun Soo that she won’t be seeing Ji Tae with or without the 1 billion won. She tells her that if God exists then surely he’ll help her just once, but she tells her not to worry because she’s certain that God is dead.

Ji Tae pulls in right when No Eul comes out of the house. She tells him that she’s returned the 1 billion won. Though he’s proud of her she tells him that she won’t be seeing him again since she’s not going to be seeking revenge he’s of no use. She walks away leaving him with the blow.

Eun Soo gets a call from her secretary telling her the Ji Tae has called an emergency board meeting. It appears like he’s trying to get her fired at the next shareholders meeting. She doesn’t believe it, but when Ji Tae comes home inquiring about his suit she knows the report is accurate.

Ji Tae is getting dressed when his mother barges in. She mentions it would have been nice that he warn her before calling for an emergency board meeting. He tells her that it’s not a surprise that it’s happening. All of the projects that she’s greenlighted without the shareholders’ approval have crashed and burned and everyone associated with them have been fired. She asks if he’s thought of what people would say about him. He tells her that they will either thhe’s his the prodigal son whose blinded by ambition or they’ll have faith in him. She asks if No Eul is more important than his mother. He turns to her and tells her that it’s not because No Eul is important it’s because Hyun Jon and Eun Soo are wrong.

Hyun Joon goes to talk with Ji Tae and asks if he can finally tell the world about his parents. He admits that he can’t but he can’t change the past, however, he can fight to stop them from using the wealth and influence to destroy anyone else’s life. Hyun Joon tells him that her rooting for him to win this fight and walks away.

When they get out Hyun Joon’s secretary tells him that Joon Young has no father listed on the birth registry which is why they took Young Ok’s last name. Though Hyun Joon is sure that she was married, they couldn’t find any proof of that.

Young Ok was developing a new dish when Jung Sik starts plucking her which hair. He starts going off about stress and Young Ok asks him if he likes her. Jung Sik turns red, which gives us the answer we already knew. Namgoog (Park Soo Young) comes in and tells her that he’s noticed it that he’s liked her for a while. When Jung Sik tries to retort he digs himself a hole. She gets made and leaves. Everyone gangs up on him about his feelings and then when Namgoog tells him about introducing Young Ok to a single father, Jung Sik pulls him aside says something that makes him freeze. He then heads out to talk with Young Ok.

Jung Sik tries to talk with Young Ok but she ignores him. He grabs another white hair and she goes after him. Hyun Joon watches from the car but it seems almost painful for him.

Jung Eun goes to see Ji Young at his house. She tells him that she’s received expensive wine and wants to share it with him. He apologises that he needs to step out for a moment and she tells him that she’ll just look around the house while he’s gone. He leaves and parks his car a little way down the road and sits there.

No Eul goes to the stares at the footage that she shot. He tells her to organise it. She tells him that he’s taken over the project and now he’s just rubbing salt in her wounds. He waves three 100,000 won bills in front of her.

Jung Eun looks around Joon Young house while he simply sits in his car.

No Eul is working on the video from the documentary. She tries really hard but finally gives up right when the scene from the beginning played with him asks her to go out with him for 3 months.

Secretary Kang tells Ji Tae that none of the board members will come no matter how long he waits. Kang asks if he thought that Eun Soo was going to let herself be attacked. He tells him that he didn’t but he wanted to test how much power his mother had.

Joon Young falls asleep in his car and wakes to Jung Eun calling him. He throws his phone on the passenger’s seat. Jung Eun gets up and is about to storm out when she stops.

No Eul continues going through the footage and she runs through all of the times that he essentially tell her how much she means to him. When she gets handed another tape it’s all the times that he mouthed worried of adoration to the camera, but because she can’t hear it she assumes he’s cursing her out.

Jung Eun sits alone at the table and drinks the wine. When Jon Young comes in he surprises that she was still there. She throws the wine glass at the window shattering it. She screams at him about knowing his place, but he simply called Kook Young to come and get her.

No Eul sits there and tries to figure out what Joon Young meant about not having much time.

Jung Eun tells Joon Young to come out and apologise to her. He comes out and apologises then picks up her phone when Eun Soo calls. He hangs up and tells her that she shouldn’t come to him with loose ends. He wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth but he is the top star.

Eun Soo is calling with Ji Tae tells her to stop. She tells him that if he’s there to surrender he can do it over dinner with Jung Eun. He tells her that he’s not there to surrender.

Jung Eun picks up the phone and tells her mother that she’s giving up on Ji Tae because he will never come to her. She is in the middle of telling her to give up when Joon Young kisses her.

He admits it is a bit much and offers to take care of it for her. She thanks him for getting on his knees and apologising.

Ji Tae is working in the receiving bay and sees his co-workers talking. They scurry after he looks over. He smiles but says nothing, returning to his own work. His secretary comes to see him and when he tells him that he’s not the section chief anymore he admits he’ll talk to him informally. He can’t believe that his parents are so mean. He tells him that at least they gave him a job rather than tell him to leave. He tells him that it may be bad if he’s seen to be close to him and tells him to leave. He tells Ji Tae that he saw No Eul and he’s certain the chairwoman called for her.

No Eul meets Eun Soo. No Eul tells her that she’s not leaving Korea and Eun Soo agrees. She gets her secretary to bring in a 1 billion won check. Eun Soo tells No Eul that the money is hers if he allows Ji Tae to go back with his fiancée. Ji Tae storms into the room and accuses his mother of doing something. Eun Soo tells him that she’s solely giving her money. He goes to rip the check up but No Eul stops him. She takes the money and leaves.

Ji Tae follows her out and asks her to give him the money because she deserves an apology, not money. She tells him that it is futile to fight because his parents will never apologise no matter how much she badgers them. She’s sold him out for 1 billion won, a sum of money she can’t even fathom. She thanks him for allowing her to hit gold and promises to buy  him a bottle of liquor later.

Joon Young notices that Jung Eun is still there looking at the river. He comes out and asks why she hasn’t left. She asks about his relationship with No Eul because it seems like she really likes him. HE tells her that he really like her too and that’s why he beat up Sung Ho. Jung Eun mentions that it doesn’t make sense that he acts to cold to her.

She goes to pay with the check but the manager refuses the large check. Ji Tae shows up and hands the sales rep a card. Na Ri calls him by his fake name. No Eul corrects her and he hands No Eul back the check he tells her to not use it . He asks if he’s only worth 1 billion won and he asks her to think what that money is really for before using it. He tells her that she should ask for all of his parent’s money if she’s really willing to forget her father’s death since that would be a fair exchange.

Joon Young ices Jung Eun’s ankle. When she mentions that he seems to be an expert. He tells her that Eul trips all the time and sprains her ankles. At that point, she tells him that she should be fine and will head home. She tries to drive the car but asks him to drive her.

He mentions that she has a finacé and she tells him that all Ji Tae cares about in No Eul. Since No Eul since so attached to Joon Young, she can’t fathom why he’s following her around. She tells him that she wants to steal him away from No Eul and make her feel the pain she’s felt. Joon Young pulls the car to the kerb and he tells her that he’s left that keys in the ignition. As he walks away she re-asks if he thinks that she could steal him away from No Eul and Joon Young tells her that he doesn’t think so. He walks away while she’s shell-shocked.

Joon Young gets a taxi to drive him to No Eul’s place. He hides when he sees Na Ri come out. when No Eul arrives they have a huge fight. Na Ri tells her that she can’t believe she turned into the type of person that accepts money. No Eul asks her watch she wants her to do, her father won’t come back from the dead if she didn’t take it. Her father always complained about her being too generous. However, with that money she has a chance to give Jik a chance to a normal life. Na Ri tells her to leave and not to come back because she won’t have someone so twisted in the house.

Ji Tae arrives home to hear his mother praising Jung Eun. He tells her that everyone is bad mouthing Jung Eun. Hyun Joon reminds him that it was the same way when he started working. He asks his mother to lets Jung Eun. He tells her that he’s not going back to hear and she should stop toying with her feelings.

Ji Tae is putting on heating pads when his father comes in to help. He tells his father about his mother paying of No Eul. Hyun Joon asks if No Eul refuses the off and stormed out. He says that she’s accepted it and his father can’t see what he wants to protect. He tells him to get some rest.

He asks if she’s planning on taking her college test a third time. She tells him that she’s not good at studying. She turns her back to him and asks if he’s happy of her admission. He notices her Joon Young jacket and asks if she hasn’t left the fan club yet. She promises she has and then teases him about being jealous. He tells her that it’s just because he doesn’t want her distracted by anything. She promises that she will try not to worry him anymore and study hard. He notices that she is having difficulty with a question and helps her. While he’s explaining it she kisses his cheek. He jumos away and asks if she’s crazy.

Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) is scrolling through Jung Eun’s Instagram while sitting in the bar that Jung Eun is drinking at. He follows her when she walks away with the bottle in her hand. He follows her to the pool and dives in when he notices her fall into the pool. His voice over continues telling the audience that there is no evidence and the witnesses changed their statements so there is no chance of a retrial.

NamGoog (Park Soo Young), Kook Young (Jung Soo Kyo) and Man Ok (Jang Hee Ryung) are all looking at Joon Youn like he’s grown a 3rd head. He tells them that he’s changed his mind about the movie because he heard the new section chief is beautiful. Namgoog tells him to stop making jokes because he didn’t have his medication. He tells him that he’s not joking. They remind him that Jung Eun is already taken by someone else. Joon Young tells him that the plan anyways. They remind him that it’s already been announced that the actor had changed. He tells them to call the production and asks his who they who prefer, the biggest Hallyu Star of the current actor.

They arrive and Koon Young asks if he really changed his mind because of the section chief. He list off all the pro about her and when Kook Young mentions she’s marrying into the KJ group and is marrying Choi Hyun Joon’s (Yu Oh Seong) son. He walks off looking stunned but really he already knew. Man Ok asks if he didn’t have a thing for NO Eul and Koon Young tells her that no one can tell what’s going on in his head.

Ji Tae (Lim Ju Hwan) catches up with No Eul and offers her his back. She tells him that she’s fine. He tells her that there will be a lot of people for KJ group watching. He pretty much wants to bug them.

Joon Young here Jung Eun walking when he hear Jung Eun talking with Sung Ho (Jeong Dong Hwan) He walks towards them while thinking about how the statue of limitation runs out in 40 days and he has minimum 30 days maximum 60 days left to live. He surprises them by speaking up.

While he’s talking with Jung Eun, Ji Tae turns the corner and No Eul asks to get down. She walks towards Joon Youg and tells him it’s been a while. She pulls out his phone and confirms that he hasn’t changed his number. She asks why he’s ignoring her calls. He tells her it’s just because. She mentions that he hasn’t changed his number and he tells her that he was planning too but it’s too much of a hassle. He tells her that he’s busy and has nothing else to say. She tells him that she has a lot to say to him but he tells her that he doesn’t want to hear it. He tells Jung Eun he’ll see her again and walks away leaving the trio there.

No Eul excuses herself and goes to her room. Ji Tae apologises to Jung Eun and she asks if that’s all he has to say. He tells her that had they come to the conclusion earlier she wouldn’t have had to go through that. He walks away and calls to Joon Young. He asks him if he wants to share a drink.

No Eul goes to the store to buy Soju but then asks herself what type of trouble she wants to get into by getting drunk. She puts the soju away. (I should get a bottle) She calls her boss and asks if he wants to hang out with her that night. They go to karaoke and she sings a bunch. It takes a few moments but soon he’s into it too.

Ji Tae pours him a glass of alcohol and asks if he came to see No Eul. He tells him he can because he has a soft spot for pretty women. Joon Young goes for the alcohol and Ji Tae stops him and drinks it himself. He tells him he forgot that a sick person shouldn’t drink. Joon Young tells him he’s not sick, Ji Tae looks around before switching into English and dictates his diagnosis. He tells him that he’ll protect No Eul and that Joon Young should take care of himself. He tells him that he doesn’t have the time to claim her as his and he should stop toying with people’s feelings. He takes the bottle of alcohol and leaves a very shocked Joon Young.

No Eul is walking back from the bathroom at the Karaoke place when she sees Man Ok being harassed. At first, she just walks by but notices that her brother isn’t noticing anything since he’s singing. So she goes to Man Ok’s rescue.

Joon Young calls Kook Young and asks here he is. He tells him he’s not anywhere and then Joon Young hears screaming. He arrived to find Kook Young, Man Ok and No Eul beating up the guys who were harrassing Man Ok.  He screams at the top of his lungs and asks what’s going on. When Kook Young Tries to explain Joon Youn tells them that he wants them to leave.

Joon Young is so mad when No Eul tries to explain he snaps at her stumbling explanation. She tells him that since Man Ok was harassed she got hurt and starts listing them off. Joon Young is on the verge of tears when he calls over a worker. He asks if there is a hospital nearby which she confirms that is. He asks her to escort No Eul because she seems to be hurt. She asks if she’s hurt and she apologises for everything but she’s fine.

Ji Tae wakes up with a hangover, having drunk the entire bottle of liquor the night before. He finds Jung Eun in his room. He inquires as to why she’s in his room. She tells him that his mother wants to talk with him. She calls her and passes the phone to Ji Tae. His mother explains how his position will he given to Jung Eun and he will work under Jung Eun. She also tells him to vacate the room. He tells her he will. She starts to tell him what he should do to stay healthy but he tells her that he doesn’t care what she wants. He tells her that he will not allow anything to happen to No Eul and will not tolerate if anything does after all he has quite a trump card. Jung Eun tells her that she will hold his position until he returns and he tells her that there is no need for that ever.

Joon Young is jogging when suddenly he trips. He thinks nothing of it and gets back up again. He tries to grab his bottle but it slips from his grasp again. He briefly remembers what his doctor had said.

No Eul is looking at her bruise and complains to herself that it look worse than the day before. He remembers back to her meeting with Joon Young. While thinking about him she cracks the raw egg on her face. She calls for another one.

She goes out to walk when she notices Joon Young sitting on the boardwalk, looking at the ocean. He’s riding out his blurry vision and when he opens his eyes No Eul is right in front of him. She starts going on about her 5,000 won bill but when she gets him to remove his shoes he stands to leave. No Eul grabs his hand and they stay like that for a beat. She tells him that she doesn’t believe what people are saying because she knows him. She tells him that she even knows what he’s thinking and it’s that he misses her. He laughs at it before No Eul admits how much she misses him. She tells him that she’ll see him the following back and wants to see him every day. She leaves and Joon Young is close to tears.

Jung Sik (Choi Moo Sung) arrives at the store and a worker tells him that Young Ok (Jin Kyung) is acting weird. When he notices Jung Sik’s purchases he asks if he should call a doctor for them. Jung Sik goes in back to help Young Ok but takes the ingredients away because she is constantly adding too much.

Young Ok thinks back to the meeting with Hyun Joon. There is an awkward silence and Young Ok adds far too much sugar in her coffee. He switches their coffee and she tells him that her taste has changed. When she grimaces he laughs and switches them. He asks if she got married and Jung Sik comes in. He asks why she calls and he didn’t want him in the parking lot. She introduces Jung Sik as her husband and holds his hand. (Oh! He wishes that were true.) She tells him that Joon Young takes after his father and is nosey. When Jung Sik starts to chock again she starts patting his back and Hyun Joon gets jealous. Hyun Joon is also thinking about the meeting in his office.

Ha Ro (Ryu Woh) is buying all of his friends a meal to try and dig up information about Jik (Lee Seo Won). He asks if digging up information on people is her past time. She tells him it’s not. He tells his friends that if they say one more thing about him to her their dead. He goes to pay the bill for the table when Ha Ro tells him she’s paying. His friends tell him that she loaded and he should date her. He accidently knocks her over after she grabs his arm and she hits her head.

Jik brings Ha Ro to Na Ri’s (Kim Min Young) place of work and tells her that she’s forgotten everything. He offered to bring her to the police station and she refused. Na Ri goes and asks her a bunch of questions to which she answers. Na Ri pulls Jik aside and tells him that she’s crazy about his so she’s acting like a crazy woman to stay by his side. He doesn’t understand why since he’s a nothing special and she seems like she would be popular with the men. Jik goes over and reads her notebook. She tells her that everything she has in it is wrong and tells her the truth. He tells her to ask him directly instead of asking his friends.

No Eul is in her bathroom with the clothes that she forgot to hang in the tub. She gets a call to go down but she only has her track suit. She tells him she’s coming. She gets eaten out by Sung Ho. Finally, No Eul snaps at him and speaks her mind. He realises that is why No Eul got fired from her position with Joon Young. He calls to him and tells his he should have warned him. He tells him that he didn’t know that she was working for him but he would have. No Eul grabs her equipment and leaves.

She meets up with Ji Tae in the hallway and tells him that she was fired, so he offers to grab a coffee with her. He brings her coffee and she asks if he got fired too because she saw that Jung Eun became the new section chief. He tells her about his engagement and how he ditched it to be with her. He asks if she likes Joon Young so much and wonders why she only sees him when he hurt her so much. She mentions that he’s the same running after her. He tells her that he’s just clever because he knows she’ll come to him if he waits long enough. He suggest they go back to Seoul together since they both got fired.

Kook Young storms out even though Man Ok tries to stop him. Joon Young breaks while filming and beats up Sung Ho. He talks with Jung Eun and when she tells him that Sung Ho will sue he tells him to let him. She asks if he’s looking for the movie to be cancelled. He admits that he doesn’t care. She tells him that she does and he goes to apologise.

They go but Sung Ho refuses to accept his apology with out him being on his knees. Jung Eun tells him he’s just being mean because he did the same thing to him. He tells him that he did it on purpose, which is accurate. Joon Young kneels and tells him that he’s sorry and they should finish filming.

No Eul goes to see Joon Young and asks if he did it because of her. He tells her that her narcissism is stronger then he thought. He tells her to take some medication and go to bed. HE goes into his room and tells him that it doesn’t matter how cold he is to her, she will not believe anyone else. He tries to ignore her but finally he drops her to the bed and ask if she wants to sleep with him. He promises if she doesn’t that he’ll open the door and let her leave. No Eul looks to be on the verge of tears.
