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 20 Recap – FINALE-



Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) brings No Eul (Bae Suzy) to the hospital. He tells that doctor that she wanted to die so to do their best to kill her. He leaves the emergency area and the nurse comes out with her phone that’s ringing. He answers it, but it’s spam. He starts to go throw the camera roll and watches a video the No Eul shot of herself. It was a little interview and in it, she says that she’s good at waiting but the one thing she fears is waking up to find that Joon Young is no longer alive. No Eul breaks down crying in the video which pulls tears from Joon Young. No Eul wakes up to find Jon young stroking her cheek. He tells her that she has acute pancreatitis and the doctor promises to kill her next time.

No Eul and Jon Young are walking back when Joon Young  gives No Eul his scarf and jacket. When he tries to get her on his back she just keeps walking. He yells to the heavens to let him live because he doesn’t want to die. This draws No Eul’s attentions as she turns to look at him. He complains about never being a good son to his mother and having so much he wants to do for her. He complains that he finally has a chance to be happy with Eul and he doesn’t want to give that up. With tears streaming down his face, he admits that he’s scared. No Eul runs over and hugs him. She apologises for it all being her fault.

Ji Tae (Lim Ju Hwan) is in the hospital when he watches the news and finds out about the video that leaked proving his father covered up a hit-and-run case years prior. Everyone is shocked at who was involved. There is a petition calling for a retrial and Hyun Joon (Yu Oh Seong) has agreed to make a public appearance, to tell the truth. Eun Soo (Jung Sung Kyung) is at home watching the news feed.

Hyun Joon arrives at the police station and is bombarded with questions about what came out in the video. All he tells the crowd is that he will be honest during the investigation.

Jung Sik (Choi Moo Sung) finishes watching the video when Deuk comes and starts asking if Young Ok (Jin Kyung) was Hyun Joon’s mistress if Joon Young is Hyun Jon’s son. Jung Sik hits Deuk with a tray and asks where Young Ok was.

Jung Sik goes to see Young Ok who is washing dishes. He tells her that Hyun Joon’s secretary did an interview telling the press that Hyun Joon told him to put up the video himself. He tells her that Hyun Joon isn’t such a bad guy after all.

Hyun Joon admits to everything to the police. How he blackmailed the prosecutor and switched out evidence and the guilty party.

Jung Eun (Lim Ju Eun) is getting ready to leave while on the phone with her father. She reminds him that she’s only ever followed what he told her to do. She yells at him reminding him that he was supposed to take care of everything and she was supposed to forget. Two police officers come up to Jung Eun and she’s under arrest.

Eul tells Jik (Lee Seo Won) to stop drying. Jik wonders if their father can rest in peace now. Eul steps out and Jon Young asks why she gave the video to Hyun Joon. She tries to lie but finally she tells him that she was satisfied knowing who killed her father. He starts going on that if she lets people act the way they do they will just walk all over her. She reminds him that Hyun Joon didn’t cover it up, but instead brought it to light and is getting his due punishment. She tells him that that’s the world she believes in. Just then they get a delivery and it’s a dog house. She tells him that it’s Pororo’s house and they should bring him there because she’s more reliable that Kook Young (Jung Soo Kyo). When they’re painting the dog house they get into a little paint fight and Joon Young’s voice over tells us that he and Eul talked about the life she lived while he wasn’t around and how once she fell asleep, Hyun Joon called and told him that he was proud t be his father.

Eun Soo tears up the paperwork the attorney Jang brought. She’s mad but Jang tells her that Hyun Joon has refused to use a lawyer. Eun Soo inquires as to what he means and Hyun Joon chimes in advising her of the same thing. Hyun Joon tells Eun Soo that Jang did nothing wrong as it was his decision. He tells her that he’s not going to use any legal representation or even appeal the decision. Hyun Joon tells Eun Soo that Ji Tae was right, they had become monsters somewhere along the way and they need to stop it. Eun Soo starts to freak out and ask if he knows the Hell she went through to get him to where he is today. Ji Tae comes in and tries to stop her from talking.  She reminds him that they were once so poor that he was forced to let his mother die. She reminds him that he wanted power so nothing of his would be taken away from him again. She tells him that to get that amount of power you have to give the same amount of sacrifice and pain. She looks straight a Ji Tae and tells him that it’s just like how she arranged for her own son to be hit by a car to protect Hyun Joon. She tells him that he can go back to rock bottom if he wants. Ji Tae tells his father that he doesn’t have to stay with his mother and can break his promise. In the middle of how Ji Tae will take responsibility Hyun Joon cuts him off and tells him that she’s his wife and mother of his children and he will stay with her no matter hw hellish it becomes.

Ha Ru (Ryu Woh) goes to Jik’s workplace and complains that he’s not working. He touches her shoulder and they come face to face. They go for a walk and Ha Ru asks if it’s been difficult because he has a pimple. He mentions she has one on her cheek as well. She kisses him on the forehead and inquires if he found it disgusting but he admits instead that it made his head beat fast. She tells him that she knows that he lied about being gay since he knew who her father was and then asks for his number. He asks if they didn’t break up and she tells him that she’s not going  to call him or text him but in the future if she can’t find a better man than him she’ll call. He gives her his number and tells her that he’ll answer the call and they part ways.

Eul is on the phone with an English company when Ji Tae come. She trying to tell them she didn’t receive a blender but Ji Tae asks for the phone. He tells the operator about the order and when he hands up he just tells him that the product was returned and they shipped it out again. He adds on that they sent an email. She admits that all English emails look like spam to her. He asks about Jon Young and when Eul hesitates he asks if he’s not home. She tells him that’s not the case and Joon Young comes out telling her that he’s going for a walk. Ji Tae is surprised that JoonYoung didn’t recognise him. No Eul tells him that he’s been like that for about a week and most days he’s so confused that she pretended to be a woman working there.

Ji Tae follows Joon Young and when he turns around Joon Young asks if he knows him. Ji Tae admits that he knows him very well. Ji Tae describes Joon Young’s horrible attitude but strong moral code. He tells him that even though he had very little tact what he said was always true and right. Joon Young asks if they were close but Ji Tae tells him no. He admits that he hated him but that’s why he wants their paths to cross again so that he can love him and cherish him like a proper big brother.

Jung Sik comes into the back and grabs Young Ok’s hand and puts a ring on it. HE sits down and helps her clean. She asks what it is and at first he says he found it and then admits he bought it. She tells him to give it to his lover and he admits that she is his lover. He tells her that he likes her and she thinks he’s crazy. He admits that he is more level headed than ever. She tells him to leave before she pours dishwater on him. He puts the ring on her finger before leaving. She throws soap water and tells him that her son is dying and he can’t do this to her now. He tells her that Joon Young asks him to take care of her, so he tells her to show off the ring to ease his mind. He tells her that she should go see him before it’s too late.

Jung Eun tells Ji Tae that the trial won’t go as planned and she’ll crush all of them then she out. She asks why he’s not talking like he normally did. He asks her that if he told her that she nearly won him over once and that he thought it might be fun to be her girlfriend if she would believe him. We get to see a scene of Ji Tae and Jung Eun in high school where she was hired to get him into an English ivy league school. He tells her that he’s certain that she could get out of doing time, but he tells her not to. He tells her that if she does time he’ll wait for her to see if there is still hope for her as a human. He tells her he’ll visit again but she tells him not to dare come back.

Young Ok goes to the house and Joon Young greets her. He asks who she is and when she asks where Eul is he assumes she there for her. He invites her in and when she asks when Eul will return he admits he doesn’t know. She was making him spicy beef stew but messed up. Young Ok goes into the kitchen to make him a stew. Eul returns and sees her there. She goes to the balcony rather than going in right away.

Joon Young is closing the glass doors when Young Ok finishes. She asks him to test the stew and he loves it. She watches sadly as he tucks into the food. He mentions that it tastes exactly like the food his mother use to make and then he suddenly stops. His brain clicks on and he starts to cry. He looks up and apologises to his mother for not remembering her. No Eul leaves them be, while eating chips.

Joon Young comes out and they start to talk. He tells her that she looks pretty. She goes down the run down of who gave her what. She tells him that Jung Sik proposed to her and he congratulates her. He tells him that now she’ll have children who are better than him but she disagrees. He simply asks his mother to not think that he didn’t try hard. She tells him that she’ll keep her doors open and he can always come see her. She promises to always think of him and thanks him for being her son. He tells her that it’s been an honour of having him as his mother and the two cry together. (Just like I’m doing. Seriously the feels. This is hitting way too close to my father’s death anniversary to not pull on the emotions I felt last year while I had the same conversation with my father.)

Ji Tae  comments on the results of the audit and admits that he and Eun Soo will be stepping down and taking responsibility. They will still remain major shareholder and owners but management will be seen too by someone else. Hyun Joon stops in and smiles at his son before leaving. Hyun Joon’s secretary comes and tells him that there will soon be a warrant for his arrest. This doesn’t phase him and he tells him to find a restaurant nearby that makes good spicy beef stew.

Eul is taking selfies when Joon Young comes in and teases her. She tells him the Jik misses her and asks for a few selfies. He grabs her phone and mentions that they don’t have any pictures together. She asks if he wants to take some. She jokes about her being too pretty and him about being handsome. They take a bunch of pictures together.

A little while later Eul tells him he looks tired and tells him to rest. They talk a little until he falls asleep. Eul tells him that he can rest and not worry about anything. Everyone is there for him so he can get plenty of rest. With tears in her eyes, she tells him that she’ll see him the following day. We see that everyday Eul preps herself for waking up to find Joon Young no longer in this world.

The season change and Man Ok (Jang Hee Ryung) and Kook Young are outside. Kook Young is smiling because of the buds on the tree. Na Ri (Kim Min Young) calls him and asks what colour he prefers. He mentions that he likes her. Na Ri mentions that something and she has to have dinner with him too. Man Ok asks who the wench is and Kook Young tell her that Na Ri is a proper lady. Namgoog (Park So Young) calls to them and tells him that he found something.

They connect the camcorder to the tv and watch Joon Young’s tape talking about his illness and his worry that people will think he was miserable. He assures them that he was happy. He mentions that at the time of recording his doctor tells him he has 3 months left to live and he wonders if the’s still alive when they find the video. He also wonders what type of life Eul is living now he’s gone.

Eul is berating her manager for taken her footage. He tells her that it’s 3 billion won and he hands it to her. She says she’ll take it as a fee and asks for him to take it. He mentions that he got a car and that’s all he needs. She asks if they got it and points out the hidden camera. She thanks him for confessing and leaves. Eul is waiting for the bus and looks at a picture of Joon Young at the bus stop. She tells it that she worked hard and kisses it. She tells him that she’ll see him tomorrow.  She smiles at the poster warmly.

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.

Screenshot 2016-09-07 11.33.56.png

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.

Screenshot 2016-09-07 11.57.32.png

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.

Screenshot 2016-09-07 12.19.29.png

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.

Joon Young arrives at the house and looks everywhere for No Eul he finds her on the balcony crying. He apologises and tells her that he deserves to die. He crouches and notices her fever. He asks why she didn’t call him and tell him that she was sick. She tells him that she’s fine. He wants to call an ambulance but she tells him that she doesn’t want to go to the hospital. He mentions that she’ll die if she keeps it up and she admits that she doesn’t care. He asks if she wants to die with him and she asks if she can’t. He tells her that they can die together and picks her up to care her somewhere. (That’s one way of getting him hospitalised.)

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
