Jealousy Incarnate Episode 5 Recap



We see Na Ri (Kong Hyo Jin) arrive at the station. She doesn’t take to anyone just gets ready for air. When another weather girl comments on her clothes she brushes her off. She tells herself that she looks good.

Sung Sook (Lee Mi Sook) warns Jo Hee (Kim Ye Woon) that she’s only getting one chance.

The doctor is talking to Hwa Shin (Cho Jung Seok) but he turns on the news and doesn’t really listen. She asks if he’s really cancelling his private room request and he confirms that he is, but only after looking at Na Ri’s bed.

They can’t decide who should so it and the 2 women fight over the spot. The clicker falls and Jung Won (Ko Gyung Py0) catches it under his shoe. Everyone starts freaking out because of the clicker and Na Ri decides to step off the stage. Jung Won kicks the clicker and it slides right under Na Ri’s foot. Everyone freaks out and Jung Won just stands there and winks at Na Ri. The weather forecast starts with them both on the screen and Na Ri makes it work having them go back and forth. Jung Won notices something is off with Na Ri. At the hospital, Hwa Shin thinks that Na Ri is the person that’s going to kill him.

After the broadcast, Na Ri and Joo Hee stand there getting yelled at. Joo Hee slaps Na Ri but when Sung Sook slaps both women Jung Won looks like he’s going to do something. Sung Sook yells at them and just then the director gets a call from the president. Everyone leaves and Jung Won walks straight to Na Ri and pulls her out of the station.

Dong Gi (Jung Sang Hoon) is in the broadcast room stunned that Sung Sook slapped them. He gets a call from Hwa Shin and he tells him what happened. He can’t believe that they are pinning the blame on them when they had no control of the situation. He tells his team to turn off the lights but leave only the spotlight on. Sung Sook  who gives her speech about the weather being part of the news too and looks being not the most important thing. In the end, the president hangs up on her and she contemplates her need of a  drink and a man.

Jung Won is mad that they treated her the way she did. She focuses on the clothes he gave Joo Hee but as soon as she’s out of his grip she leans heavily against the wall. Jung Won asks if she still needs more friends and lovers, but before she can answer her legs give way and she slides to the floor. Jung Won’s secretary notices her bracelet and Jung Won tells him to take them there. Jung Won picks her up and carries her to the car.

Hwa Shin is worried that Na Ri will be in trouble if she doesn’t arrive soon. He leans on his bed to gets a slipper that was under it but his arm gives out, due to the operation, and ha falls.

Chi Yeol (Kim Jung Hyun) tries to reach his sister but can’t. Red (Mun Ka Young) mentions that something is off and Dae Goo (An Woo Yeon) agrees. Dae Goo asks if Na Ri told Chi Yeol anything.

Jung Won carries her all the way to the car, just barely missing Hye Won (Seo Ji Hye). once in the car he lays her across the back seat and rests her her head on his legs. Her phone rings and it seems to stir her. She tries to sit up but Jung Won tells her to stay where she is. She notices him holding her hand and he lets go nervously. She answers the second call adn Hwa Shin is asking where she is and starts berating her for just getting up and leaving right after surgery. He tells her that she should just get married. She hangs up and wonders why he keeps telling her to get married and mentions to Jung Won that you would need a job for a blind date and no one would want her. He smiles down at her. She then asks where they’re heading.

They pull into the hospital but she suddenly remembers Hwa Shin is there. She tries to get away but Jung Won tells Secretary Cha to get her to the gurney. She grips Jung Won’s leg tightly and he suddenly can’t talk but eventually they get her in and Jung Won won’t stop following. She’s worried that Hwa Shin will be in the room when she gets there and wants him to leave. She tries everything but stops fighting. Hwa Shin looks out the door and notices them coming so he hides himself in his bed.

They bring her in and both Jung Won and secretary Cha claim to be her guardians. They get told to step outside but resist until they find out it’s to change her clothes.  They leave and Hwa Shin explodes at her telling her that she did this on purpose. He goes on about his career being over and her being the one to report his downfall. She tells him that after the fiasco at the station that she obviously planned it and mentions that she brought the loudmouth of the office. She tells him as well that the man standing outside can give her the 10 million won that they were talking about.

Secretary Cha mentions that it’s their speciality getting people into clothes and chuckles until Jung Won glares at him. He asks him if he’s really going to cheat like that because he’s always been lazy when it comes to dating and only dated friends. He tells him that him being lazy is the reason why he can’t date someone like Hye Won because he needs someone like a friend. He asks if Na Ri is a friend but Jung Won tell him that she’s not a girly-girl. He sends him off for drinks and Secretary Cha tells him that he’ll be telling his mother everything once he’s back. He nods and sends him off.

Ja Young (Park Ji Young) goes to Rak’s (Lee Sung Jae) restaurant. He asks if she likes saffron and she admits she does. He tells her that Red always gets the same pasta dish. When he brings out the pasta he offers t sit with her so she’s not alone. They talk and she mentions eating alone a lot but he can relate. She finds out that he’s never been married but doesn’t tell her why.

Sung Sook goes to have a glass of wine at Rak’s restaurant and asks him about a wife and children. After she leaves Red comes back and he feeds her. He asks if she really doesn’t miss or need her mother. When she says no he cleans her up and she tells him that he should be doing that for the person he loves. He tells her that it’s not because he doesn’t want to get married but rather he can’t. (Is he gay? Is he in love with a minor? So many questions.)

The doctor comes in and yells at Na Ri. She apologises and the doctor tells her that neither her mother or grandmother acted that way. She tells Jung Won that since he’s her guardian he has to watch her at all times so she doesn’t pull the same thing again. He agrees and the doctor goes to talk with Hwa Shin. She tells him that they caught it early but he needs to come back every day for 6 weeks for treatment. He agrees and as for a private room but she tells him there isn’t any available. Na Ri asks if Jung Won isn’t going to leave. He tells her that he’s been told to look after her 24/7. Jung Won asks if Hwa Shin knows that she’s sick and she tells him that Hwa Shin doesn’t have the slightest interest in her. He’s relieved by that and smiles at her sweetly.

Dae Goo and Chi Yeol go to see Na Ri at work. They can’t get in at first but Sung Sook lets them in. They notice that she’s gone and runs after Sung Sook. Chi Yeol asks if his sister will be fired and she tells him that he should know her better than anyone and know that she wouldn’t let that happen.

Jung Won stocks her fridge and she thanks him. He wonders if the older woman is sleeping. She mentions that she should be and then inquires to his idea of the remote. He tells her that if he had handed it to her in her hand someone might have taken it away and he wanted her to have it. He tells her that she did a good job and had she ran away she wouldn’t have gotten another chance. He is completely heartfelt when Hwa Shin has to pass his gas. They joke about it being strong and Jung Won goes to open a window. Hwa Shin tells Na Ri to get rid of him. She comes up with the idea of getting him to leave by sleeping. He tells her that he’ll leave once she’s falls asleep. Though Secretay Cha to the rescue. He comes in and tells Jung Won they need to leave and Na Ri agrees.

She walks him out and thanks him for everything. He asks her why she’s acting all formal and she tells him that she’s been acting out of sort that day. She asks him not to return because she’ll be released soon she also promises to buy him a meal because she won’t forget that he was her guardian for the day. She goes to leave but he stops her he kisses her forehead and bids her goodnight. He tells her not to worry because they had double ratings because she was on the air so she’ll have another shot. He heads out and Na Ri catches up. She asks if it’s not too fast and he admits that it’s fast but it’s not a no. He asks why she tried to rush him off before and wonders if she’s scared. He tells her that she doesn’t know men if she thought that he stuck around out of kindness. He asks her if she’s dense or just bad at dating. He tells her that when they were in Thailand she didn’t jump into his arms, but rather he pulled her to him. She thinks back and suddenly remembers his arm around her waist. She confirms that she didn’t know. She leaves with a smile on her face.

Hwa Shin calls Jung Won and asks him if he’s hiding something from him. He tells him that he isn’t and Hwa Shin goads him. He tells him that there is an investment in Thailand that he’s planning on going in on but since Jung Won has plenty of money he doesn’t need to know. He confirms as much and then tells him that Na Ri is sick and he took her to the hospital. Hwa Shin tells him that he did a good job and promises to call him again soon. He watches from his window as his friend gets into the car.

Sung Sook and Ja Young both finish their nightly broadcast. Rak is cleaning up up the restaurant after hours. The two women meet up in the elevator and Ja Young chastises Sung Sook for drinking after she told off Na Ri for doing it. They start to get physical but they have to leave the elevator. They go to a room that doesn’t have a camera and begin to fight. Sung Sook blames Ja Young for how her life turned out claiming that she stole her daughter and husband. Ja Young tells her that she threw them away and has no right to complain. While Sung Sook cries Ja Young sprays her with the shower head. Sung Sook gets mad and sprays her. In the end, they blame each other and sit there crying.

Na Ri suddenly starts passing gas and Hwa Shin teases her. He teases her and then asks when she’s gotten close to Jung Won. She mentions that he’s his best friend and she wonders why he can’t tell him about what’s going on. Hwa Shin tells her that Jung Won is already a man who gives far more of himself than he should. If he found out that he had cancer then he’d become pitiful and he doesn’t want that. She lets out a fart again and he tells her to let it all out at once. He asks if it’s because he’s there and she still feels as if he’s a man. She tells him that she finished it with him and to stop prodding because she got dumped. He tells her that she got dumped all on her own because it was her one-sided love. She tells him that he’s right and she gave herself a broken heart. She mentions that it’s hard to believe that 2 friends can talk so differently. She thinks back to everything that Jung Won did for her that day. She’s hungry so she opens the fridge but there is only the purees that Jung Won bought. She complains about it but needs to eat so she grabs one. She offers it to Hwa Shin but he tells her no because Jung Won bought it for her not him. She feels better after having it. They turn to face each other and Na Ri asks about Jung Won. Hwa Shin tells her to not bother his friend because she’s trying to get over him. She turns away and wishes him a goodnight.

Jealousy Incarnate Episode 3 Recap



We re-watch Na Ri (Kong Hyo Jin) storm out on Hwa Shin (Cho Jung Seok). Na Ri heads straight to the elevator and Hwa Shin, though it looks like he’s following, walks to the broadcast room.

The elevator doors open and Na Ri comes face to face with Jung Won (Ko Gyung Pyo). He greets her with a large smile. The broadcaster who was in the lift calls to him and thanks for dropping off the outfit. His secretary comes around the corner and starts making her feel like Jung Won came for her and that he’s a fan. Na Ri walks away scoffing at the comment. Though Jung Won is trying to get away his secretary is trying to push him together with this woman for some reason. When Na Ri looks in from outside she says to herself out loud that had she worn something similar she wouldn’t have gotten fired.

Hwa Shin goes straight to his desk and print’s something. The director comes to him and asks him if he fired Na Ri and asks why. Hwa Shin asks if he’s changed in the last 3 years because he uses to only care about the ratings. He shows him the real-time ratings and the spike during her segment. Sung Sook (Lee Mi Sook) tries to claim that she’s not a real reporter and the weather isn’t the news. Hwa Shin tells her that she doesn’t just parrot off what someone else wrote for her, every day she researches the news and gives a report. If she’s not a reporter, he asks then why she’s in the news department.

Na Ri heads a street vendor for a beer.She sits down to drink. She notices the caller from that morning calling and she tells herself that she doesn’t need a fan now that she’s fired. We see Jung Won off to the side calling her. He hangs up and takes the seat next to her. She starts complaining about how he likes everyone and when he points out he did nothing ill towards her she apologises. she admits she wants to be  sponsored by his clothing company as well, but he tells her that he is a business man and she would need to provide something for him to sponsor him. She jokes about him not needing any more girlfriends or friends. She tells him that she knows he was passing by and tells him that he can leave. He asks if she’ll be ok because he knows that she drank a lot. She tells him she’ll be fine. He walks away and tells her that she did a good job that day. Needless to say, she doesn’t believe him.

Chi Yeol (Jung Sang Hoon) and Dae Goo (An Woo Yeon) are following Red (Mun Ka Young) out of the hospital. Dae Goo complains that Red hasn’t eaten anything and is worried that she’ll pass out. Chi Yeol mentions that she hasn’t been sleeping either. He walks over and sits next to her.  Kim Rak (Lee Sung Jae) pulls up and tells the boys to bring her to the car.

Sung Sok is practising for the broadcast when Ja Young (Park Ji Young) asks her if she’s meeting with Red secretly. Sung Sook reminds her of the time she gave Ja Young 10 million won to raise her daughter yet she used it on a purse. She tells her that she used her own money to raise Red. Sung Sook tells her that she;s no waiting and she will find Red and raise her herself. Ja Young tells her that she can’t even cook and would starve the poor highschooler. She leaves after telling Sung Sook that her eyes look tight.

Na Ri is trying to get a taxi with no luck. Hwa Shin happens to stop at the red light right before her. He pulls in front of her and she gets in. She pretends ti not notice that it isn’t a taxi and then lets it sleep moments later.

Na Ri complains about no one willing to drive her home and how women have it rough. She keeps bumping into him. He asks how much further until her house and she tells him that they’re almost there. She admits that she can’t believe that he wants to drive her home. He teases that she must be happy that the taxi driver was walking her home. She asks if he isn’t curious about who she was drinking with and when he says he isn’t, she complains that he was never curious about her. He complains about her wardrobe and hands her his jacket.

Kim Rak is carrying Red and they notice Na Ri. Dae Goo is surprised to see a man next to her. Chi Yeol moves to go talk with his sister, but Dae Goo stops him. He also stop Kim Rak and tells them to just let Na Ri date. He then mentions that she looked sexy doing the weather that day.

Na Ri wonders what she’ll do that next day. Hwa Shin tells her to go on an arranged date and to get married. She looks at him oddly and he asks if he sounded too cold. He tells she’ll meet a man much better than him and get married. She reminds him that she’s unemployed and she wonders if she has any chance at all. They arrive and he tells her to go in. She asks if that’s really the end and agrees it is. He walks away and though she watches from the entrance he doesn’t turn back.

Screenshot 2016-09-05 13.59.22.png

He walks sadly by the gang and Red hides her face from him. She looks back at him and remembers petitioning for a correct on the story that Hwa Shin did 3 years prior. No matter what anyone told her she didn’t stop. She eventually gets pulled away but Sung Sook while a sad-eyed Hwa Shin looks on.

Na Ri sits on the roof and looks at her work pass. Chi Yeol sits next to her and asks if she has anything to say. She tells him that she quite being a weather announcer. He tells her to no quit because he likes her as the weather girl. She asks if she knows why the lanyard is red. She tells him that since she’s a contract employee she can be fired at any moment. Announcers wear blue because they’re full-time employees and have a safe job. She tells him that she went to school 2 years, failed the exam twice and barely passed the 3rd time to be the weather girl for 4 years. She doesn’t know what she wants anymore but her dream is still to become an announcer.

Rak tells the kitchen staff to close up and tells the boys to watch over Red. Dae Goo tried to get her to eat and Chi Yeol chastises her when she doesn’t Red tells them that they need to help her and only then will she eat.

Hwa Shin gets home and looks into the fridge and suddenly remembers his visit to the doctors. Though a little taken back by the fact that the doctor is a woman, she mentions that the reason he was able to see her so quickly is the fact that he’s a man. She asks if she should get him a male doctor but there would be a 2 month wait time. He says it’s fine. He gets sent out to change in a pink robe. The ultrasound shows a lump so he gets sent to get a mammogram. Needless to say, it’s painful for him.

Screenshot 2016-09-05 14.21.50.png

When he leaves, people are talking about it being their first time seeing a man in the clinic. They assume men can get breast cancer as well. He goes to the stairs and calls Na Ri. He looks into the fridge once more and grabs a beer.

Jung Won also grabs a beer and goes to sit down in his living room. He thinks about his conversation with Na Ri and smiles. He pulls out a phone to make a call and is surprised that Hwa Shin’s phone isn’t international. He asks if he’s in Korea.

They get together and play a VR game together. When Hwa Shin goes to clean up Jung Won tells him about his new toothbrush and what lotion to use. He comes out and brings Jung Won a beer. Jung Won tells him to not leave again because he thought he was going to die f boredom. Hwa Shin asks if he didn’t have any girlfriends. Jung Won doesn’t say anything and then tells him about a mutual ex who is getting married. They start talking and realise that they were both played. They joke about going to her wedding and asking who she likes the most. Hwa Shin goes to leave and Jung Won complains about him not saying over the night. He complains about Hwa Shin not being good at listening. Hwa Shin goes to tell Jung Won about his chest but he can’t bring himself too. He leaves a slightly confuses Jung Won, who watches him go fondly.

The next morning Na Ri gets woken up but Chi Yeol reminding her about her appointment. She tells him that it’s fine. She gets a call from Jung Won. (while not knowing it’s Jung Won.) She has to wake up and tells him a forecast and he asks her out for coffee. She tells him she’s busy and hangs up after he mentions she’s lonely. She calls him a pervert. Rak and Chi Yeol assume it’s the guy she was with the day before and Chi Yeol freaks out.

Jung Won’s assistant comes in with 5 outfits and he tells her ti’s fine since Na Ri is too busy to come.

Hwa Shin is researching breast cancer at home. suddenly he is caught by a phishing call. He leaves and Ja Young gets into his house.

Dong Gi (Jung Sang Hoon) gets everyone ready and the director asks if he wants to g have cold noodles. Hwa Shin comes in and invites them out to eat. He tells them that he wants to audition for the position as the anchor on the 9 o’clock news, putting him up against his sister in law. He tells them that it doesn’t belong to her yet. They tell him about the physical and he asks if he needs to hand in proof.

Na Ri goes to see the doctor and is told that she needs to remove the lump in her chest. She is told that it shouldn’t’ be cancerous but they need to remove it because it becomes a problem. She complains that her already flat chest will become flattered. The doctor reminds her that it’s not cancer so she should be happy.

Na Ri goes to the bank machine and complains that she has no income and will have to keep spending.

Hwa Shin gets given the bad news that he has breast cancer. He freaks out and the doctor explains to him. She snaps and doesn’t have the best manner to deal with him, but this man suddenly has to come to grips with a man have breast cancer. He tells her to only remove his chest partly and asks about a scar. She adv him that there is nothing they can do with that and he tries to find a way around it. The doctor watches Hwa Shin leave sadly. She notices Na Ri coming up the escalator as well. Her nurse hands her the next surgery that she’s performing.

Red puts in her earbuds into her father’s (Yun Da Hun) ears. He starts imagining everyone he knows in the room with him and they push him down a hallway. Then proceeds a disco dance party… even he’s dying or very high. Red takes a picture of her father smiling softly. She leaves and asks the nurse to take care of her father.

Na Ri checks into her room, the day before surgery to find the other person sleeping. Or she assumes they are anyways. She unpacks as quietly as possible. She asks if she can turn on the TV and then asks to tell her if it’s too loud. Her neighbour starts to cough as she changes. She gets mad that they are fine without her. She tries to decide what to watch and Hwa Shin tells her not to change the channel. He opens the curtain and she’s shocked to see him.

Jealousy Incarnate Episode 2 Recap



We rewatch Red’s (Mun Ka Young) scene in the hospital. After her freak out Dae Goo (An Woo Yeon) and Chi Yeol (Kim Jung Hyun) try to calm her down. Chi Yeol tells her to call her uncle and tell him to come.

Na Ri (Kong Hyo Jin) tells Hwa Shin (Cho Jung Seok) about her worry about what she felt in his chest. He reminds her that he’s a man. Na Ri tells him that men are still human and have chest too. Hwa Shin walks away not believing he had that conversation.

In the preview room, Sung Sook is already demanding that they re-edit the recruitment ad. Dong Gi (Jung Sang Hoon) tells her that the director already signed it off and the director tells her that the CEO ok-ed it. she tells him that the director wants a fun video and so she stripped down and danced like an idiot but they put Hwa Shin as the picture boy of the company. She tears into the act that she wants Hwa Shin out of the video completely and that she believes that men shouldn’t be on screen because people tune in for the women. She then proceeds to go onto a self-important rant. Ja Young (Park Ji Young) butts in and tells her that the audience fears that she’ll claw out of the screen when she does the 12 am newscast by herself. They get into a fight about the merits of using an experienced freelancer than training someone from scratch. Sung Sook tells Ja Young that she will not be hiring a single announcer and Ja Young tells her that she’ll be certain to hire only ugly women.

Hwa Shin is walking and he says hello to Dong Gi. Dong Gi tells him to see the director because he’s furious because of him. He tells him he should at least say Hi. Dong Gi tries everything to stop him from going in.

The announcers start asking Ja Young if it’s true that all announcers will be on contracts like the weather girls. They wonder why Sung Sook has it out for them. Ja Young tells her that they just have to show the station that they can’t work without them.

Screenshot 2016-08-29 14.09.32.png

Na Ri notices Hwa Shin go into the bathroom and waits for him to come out. She tells him that she wasn’t finished talking. She told him that it could be nothing but he should have it checked just in case. She tells him that he only has to go to an OBGYN to get referred to a cancer clinic. He pulls her into the entrance and tells her that he doesn’t like women like her. When she asks what a woman like her is, he tells her an easy target. She nods and walks away.

Jung Won (Ko Gyung Pyo) tries on a shirt and tells his assistant that he wants to give the shirt to Hwa Shin. His assistant starts to retaliate saying that Hwa Shin is just greedy. Jung Won tells him that he knows but they are friends so it doesn’t matter. While he’s changing Hwa Shin calls he’s told that Jung Won is back in Italy and he will have him call him back when he’s back. Jung Won tells him that he’s to give the shirt to Hwa Shin.

Na Ri arrives at the hospital just in time for the doctor to come out. The doctor tells them that they stopped the bleeding but they can’t say if Joong Shin (Yun Da Hun) will regain consciousness.

Hwa Shin comes home to find his mother gone. He wonders why she isn’t picking up her phone to find that she’s left it at home. He get’s the 1st aid kit out and complains that there is no one to welcome him home except for Na Ri.

When outside Na Ri bumps into Dong Gi who asks her to pick up 7 coffees. While waiting in line she notices the recruitment add and picks up an application under the pretence it’s for a friend.

The rain starts and Jung Won gets stuck in it. He thinks back to the time when he was with Hwa Shin in Thailand and it started to rain. Na Ri runs over for them to use it. They keep bouncing her and finally she gives up and tells them to just not use it. The 2 men come and cover her with the umbrella and she tells them that the one thing she hates the most was seeing other people get rained on. The 2 men agree to use the umbrella but when the thunder rings out Na Ri jumps and hides her face in Jung Won’s shoulder.

Screenshot 2016-08-29 15.08.12.png

Hwa Shin arrives and Na Ri doesn’t say a thing to her. Sh gets a phone call from someone to complain about the weather. We see that it’s Jung won’s secretary. Hwa Shin takes the phone and eats out the person on the other side and hangs up.

Jung Won tells him there is a rude person at the broadcasting company. He inquires about the name that Jung Won put Na Ri under.

Hwa Shin hands back the phone. She tells him that she’s going to worry because for her someone complaining about her segment means they’re a fan. Everyone only sees her for 60 seconds a day and no one treats the weather like the news. Someone calling to complain is essentially acknowledging her segment. She tells him that she’s gotten over her one-sided feelings for him 3 years prior and not to be mistaken.

Jung Won’s assistant asks why he asked him to do that. Jung Won told him just because and then chastises him for forgetting his phone. Jung Won looks out at the rain and smiles to himself.

Hwa Shin comes to see Sung Sook and asks about his brother and red. Sung Sook reminds him that she hasn’t been married to his brother for 10 years. He tells her never mind and turns to leave. The director asks if he doesn’t see him and tells him he should greet him properly. Hwa Jin advises him that he’s not back to work yet and he will greet him properly when he is. He leaves as Na Ri comes in. He tells her to go away and she steps out of his way after dropping the files.

He goes in search of Ja Young. When he finds her he asks where his niece is. She tells him that he’ll find out when his mother returns. She teases him about being a good uncle, and he tells her that it’s not possible after what she did and walks away. Both of the 2 women get up and go somewhere.

Kim Rak (Lee Sung Jae) is at the restaurant with all the girls fawning over him. He gets a phone call that the 3 kids left. He can’t believe that they didn’t’ listen. He goes to the apartment looking for red, but when he looks int Joong Shin’s room he finds his wedding pictures out. He wonders briefly who her mother is.

Sung Sook tells Hwa Shin to tell her when he finds out where Red is since as her mother she has the right to know. She tells him that she’s only putting up with Red living with Joong Shin until college. Hwa Shin tells her nothing will change when she’s in college. He tells her to not be greedy about Red and to just live her life as she always does/ Sung Sook tells him that Red might hate her, but not as much as she hates him.

Ja Young gets in Hwa Shin’s car and tells him to tell her when he finds Red. He admits that he didn’t know what type of person she was at first. She blames him for screwing up his brother’s life and her marriage ending in divorce.

Rak finds Red at the hospital waiting. He tells her that her father isn’t going to die. He tells her that he’ll talk to the doctor to let her see him during off hours so she should go to school. She tells him that if her father dies she’s going to die too.

Hwa Shin looks at the red light and things about the last story he shot that forced his brother out in the open for his wrong doing. Both of the ex-wives confronts him. You could tell that Hwa Shin was already having issues with the story without them rubbing it in.

One of the weather girls is talking about taking the exam. They tell her that they can’t believe it. They get Na Ri to do the most unconvincing rant to her about the reason why she’s being so nice to the announcing director is because of the exam.

Daw Goo gets food delivered and smuggles it in. Chi Yeol watches from the classroom while also keeping an eye on Red. Daw Goo comes in and tries to get her to eat chicken. She finally sits and asks if either of them have cigarettes. Dae Goo hands her a beer but Chi Yeol pulls it away. He chugs and he wants to get it out of her sights. The teacher comes in and chastises them for cutting class.

Na Ri notices her junior  drinking near work. She asks why she’s drinking alone near work. She tells her that it’s sad. She apologises for earlier and wishes her god luck. She starts on how she’s younger and prettier than her so she’ll have better luck The junior asks her to drink one glass but Na Ri refuses until finally agreeing to 1 glass of Soju.

Hwa Shin goes to get his chest checked by a doctor. She takes an x-ray and tells him nothing is wrong with his ribs. He tells her about the car accident and hitting his chest hard and she wants to check for a rupture. She checks her chest and suggests he sees a specialist about it. He gets all defensive about it and she suggests just getting it checked. She really hopes that it’s nothing.

Hwa Shin stands outside the clinic and doesn’t go in. Na Ri’s words float through his head.

Na Ri is drunk at the restaurant and decided to call the viewer who complained. Meanwhile, at the office, they are looking for her because they’ll be on the air in 5 minutes. Jung Won picks up that phone and she starts to apologise about the previous call and hanging up. He mentions that it sounds like she was drinking and he looks at his watch. She promises to call him every morning for a week to give him a personalised weather forecast. He tells her that  she’ll regret it in the morning. She pesters him until he agrees. She eats and gets her something on her dress and she mentions that she needs to wear it for the forecast. This gives her junior and idea and gives her a wrap to mess her dress up completely the news starts playing and they run back to the station.

Jung Won turns on the news and a secretary comes in with the outfit for Hwa Shin and Jung Won tells her that he’ll bring it to him.

Na Ri sends the junior to get her clothes as she climbs the stairs. She gets a call from Hwa Shin. She asks him why he’s calling and he tells her that it’s just because. She hangs up and he says it was because he thought of her. we pull away to see Hwa Shin in a pink gown.

Na Ri is doing her makeup when a delivery comes for Hwa Shin.Tthe secretary goes looking for the CEO. The Junior comes in and gives her, her clothes because there was nothing else. She arrives and they can’t believe she’s going to do it wearing the clothes she has on. The director tells her that she’s fired because she was drinking. She swears she’s fine and tells them that she can do the segment with her eyes closed. They want to skip the segment but Dong Gi tells them that they’re rolling. They get out of the way and Jung Won watches Na Ri read that weather. She goes through the news without a hitch but she’s still fired. Hwa Shin arrives to work and can’t keep his eyes off Na Ri during the entire weather forecast.

She goes after the director and he can’t believe she came to work drunk and smelling like meat. He tells her that this is the last after of kindness he’ll do for her and tells her to leave. She gets chewed out by both Sung Sook and Ja Young. She apologises.

Jung Won goes outside and his secretary asks where he was. He motions to go into the car but he closes the door and heads back inside.

Na Ri is sitting at her desk holding in the tears when Hwa Shin comes in. He asks what the director said and she stays quiet. He tells her to do better next time. He goes to walk out but then comes back and asks her why she was wearing her clothes and drank before the show. He claims that his chest was tight that entire time she was up there trying to make sure that she didn’t mess up. She turns to look at him with red-rimmed eyes and his words fall short. She tells him that she has no interest in his chest anymore and for him not to worry because that was her last broadcast. She tears up the application and walks out of the room. it takes a few beats for him to follow.

Jealousy Incarnate​ Episode 1 Recap



We start this series a little oddly. There are 3 little-cartooned entities in a space ship controlling the weather. However, their spaceship is hit by a meteor. They spin out of control before crashing to the ground. Their spaceship falls down a chimney and turns on the tv. We see Pyo Na Ri (Kong Hyo Jin) telling us the news.

Na Ri is reading the news and the person behind the camera is telling her how she should be acting and moving. We quickly see that they are selling her looks in their show. They pan to the newscasters once her segment is up. The show ends and everyone is focused on Hong Hye Won (Seo Ji Hye) The female newscaster. Though Na Ri thanks the crew no one pays her much mind.

Na Ri starts grabbing clothes for the next newscasters and grabs the makeup kit. The makeup artist worries about the male’s newscaster’s pours showing up. The lighting teach suggests adding another light to make his pores seem smaller, but there is no way to hide it. Na Ri suggests a vase but they decide not to. Na Ri presents Hye Won with her shoes and gets told not to put the shoes in the prop room like last time. On her way out Na Ri gets chastised for stepping on some wires. When the producer asks who is going for coffee she offers.

Lee Hwa Shin (Cho Jung Seok) travels around Thailand to film a segment and we see him shooting the first part over and over again. He finishes up and walks through a bar before asking the barkeep for a glass of whisky. He then asks the guy to sell him his shirt. He manages to dis the guy’s girlfriend by saying that pretty girls are common but the shirt is a limited edition. He finally ends up in a fight with the guy because of what he said.  (You should see the WTF look I have on my face right now.) The guy punches him and leaves. He tells the girl that she shouldn’t be dating someone with no money.

Na Ri comes back to the station having finished everything up and she leaves her wires on the desk. She looks around to find no one there and she walks other to the desk. She sits down and imagines Hwa Shin sitting right beside her. She signs off of the imaginary show in her mind. She gets removed from her ravery buy the news director telling her it’s not her spot.

Choi Dong Gi (Jung Sang Hoon) is asking the News Director to sign off on the Thailand shoot. He reminds him that he told him to give him the ratings and he signed off on it. With them not even shooting that much he doesn’t understand why the price is so high. He calls Na Ri in and he’s reading off the list f things that are expensive. When she’s asked if he does the news on the weekends she tells him he doesn’t/. She offers to do that job for 1/2 the price. He assigns everything to Na Ri and tells Dong Gi that only he and Na Ri can go.

Na Ri is getting money when the other weather girls go to talk with her. They ask her why she stays at the station because they don’t pay her enough for her lively hood. They ask her why she does little things around the office for a little extra cash. They tell her that they are all announcers and they just tell the people around the weather. She tells them that their not announcers and even if they act as if they are no one will treat them that way.

They all leave when the weather girl group comes face to face with the announcers. The greet them and one of them points out that Na Ri is wearing but padding.

Pyo Chi Yeol (Kim Jung Hyun) is leaving the academy when he gets called to by a proof. he calls him a thief because he hasn’t paid his school fees. He tells him that he didn’t steal anything the class would still go on even if he wasn’t there just the seat would be empty. He tells the teacher that they can check his body because he didn’t steal anything. Na Ri watches this from the back and finally yells at him. She asks if he’s an exhibitionist because he stripped in front of all the girls. She tells him to put his clothes back on and then apologises for being late with the payment.

They are walking back and she tells him that she is always proud when she pays the academy fees. He complains that she reeks of alcohol. She tells him that she allowed to drink. She kisses his cheek and he tells her that he’s not a child. She tells him that he’s her child. She tells him that she planned on taking him with her when she marries. She tells him that she was going to throw herself at the first eligible man when that guy left but that didn’t happen because she was working hard to pay for his academy.

Later that evening Chi Yeol comes and notices Na Ri sleeping outside. He tells her that she shouldn’t bare everything by herself or give anything up. In his mind, that’s the man’s job. He picks her up and carries her inside.

We watch Hwa Shin go for his morning run and then get a phone call from a friend asking if he wants to have coffee. Hwa Shin asks if he has a death wish and asks where he is.

Ko Jung Won (Ko Gyung Pyo) tells his driver to take him to the airport. His driver asks where he would want to go after being in Italy for two years. Jung Won mentions that he wants to go for coffee.

At the airport, his secretary reminds him that there is a board meeting that afternoon. He advises him that they should just come for coffee too… in Thailand.

Na Ri gets on the plane with Dong Gi and though Dong Gi gets a first class seat she is in the economic section. She takes the middle seat and notices no one sitting by the window and slide over to look out the window. Jung Won arrives and notices that she’s in his seat but takes the middle seat. She tells him that the middle seat is hers. He informs her that the window seat is his and that she can have it since all he’ll be doing is reading his newspaper. She smiles at him softly before looking out the window again. Part way through the flight Jung Won falls asleep and Na Ri happens to look over as his newspaper slides off of his face.  She compares him to Dong Gi who was sitting in first class.

They get off the plan and she notices that they’re following Jung Won. She continues walking but Dong Gi tells her to wait because he needs to use the washroom. He goes off and she starts to walk but bumps into Jung Won. He tells her to watch where she’s going and to not let her eyes wander while working with him.

Once they get into the car Hwa Shin starts asking Dong Gi about the rest of the crew. Dong Gi tells him not to worry.

Jung Won is at the hotel when he calls Hwa Shin. Hwa Shin tells him to just come across the river to where he is because it shouldn’t take long. Hwa Shin wants to look over the script but Dong Gi ushers him off to makeup and wardrobe thinking that it’ll take longer than normal.

Na Ri comes in and tells him that she’s there to help him with everything. He tells her to leave and sent in makeup. She comes back in and does her makeup. She does the same thing again for his hair and wardrobe. He starts to laugh and looks at her. He tells her that he can’t blame her for what their stations plans where. He starts to put on a white shirt and she doesn’t want him to wear that. The fight over it and she scratches him and freak out. She tries to stop the bleeding but notices something while feeling his chest. He takes a tumble on the bed and she mentions that his chest and her mother’s… and then she trails off. She tells him to never mind and asks if he’s ok. He tells her he is and then yells at her to leave.

She leaves and chastises herself because he’s obviously a man. She then decided she should buy him ointment. (So she thought she felt a lump. Poor woman, men have breast tissue too, it’s just underdeveloped.)

Hwa Shin comes out with the outfit on and asks Dong Gi for the concepts. Dong Gi tells him not to go bad and starts explaining that it’s the president’s idea and they need to have it done today. While he’s talking Jung Won arrives. Hwa Shin stops listening to Dong Gi and wonders if Jung Won got the coffee he liked. He goes to head off the stage when Dong Gi tries to stop him saying he’ll make it art. Hwa Shin digs into the project and then about the fact that he tells the weather girls to put the breast and butts out. When Na Ri is in the position he can’t remember the day’s weather. He reminds him the  weather is news to and needs to be treat that way. He excuses himself to meet with an old friend.

He goes over to Jung Won and jokes about people saying he’s not a billionaire when he flies all over the place as he does. Na Ri shows up and walks straight to Jung Won, ignoring Jung Won completely.  He decides that he doesn’t want to do the shoot anymore and leave with Jung Won.

Na Ri is laying down outside and she thinks about when she felt in Hwa Shin’s chest.

Jung Won is flying back when he remembers the conversation he had with Na Ri. She had been shocked when he knew who she was. He remembers how happy he made her with his little comment.

A girl runs through the apartment complex and gets everyone up. Na Ri asks her why she keeps treating her as a daughter as she didn’t give birth to her. Na Ri heads out to find Chi Yeol washing. She asks to see his chest because she’s curious about something. Chi Yeol tells her to try dating if she’s interested in a man’s chest and goes inside.

Everyone in the apartment building piles into the car. Kim Rak (Lee Sung Jae), the landowner, asks Oh Dae Goo (An Woo Yeon) if his parents know about his test. He tells them that he does. He mentions to Red her skirt is too short. They are all waiting on Na Ri when Red mentions that the car full is family since they eat together, have coffee together and all go to work and school in the same car. When Red mentions that her father was still sleeping we pan to him.

Lee Joon Shin (Yun Da Hun) is sitting at bed looking at old wedding pictures. The picture of the 1 wife we see a flashback of Hwa Shin advising against the marriage. In The second marriage flashback. Hwa Shin is nothing but supportive. From the sidelines, it looks like the 1 wife was watching and she couldn’t imagine in choosing his current wife over her.

She notices Hwa Shin and he tells her to stop staring at him. They start to cross and she asks if his hands are full. He tells her he doesn’t need help and Na Ri admits she wasn’t going to help him and then starts to give him a breast exam. (Oh Na Ri.) He mentions that it’s too early in the morning for this. She continues to give him a breast exam until he finally screams at her. He mentions that 3 years prior she was innocent. He asks why she’s doing what she’s doing and she tells him that it could be nothing but they should talk. He asks if she still likes him because that scares him more than anything else.

Dong Gi goes to see the news producer about something to find him nervous of Hwa Shin’s return. He mentions that as soon as Hwa Ji steps foot in the office tensions will raise because after all his uncle married Kye Sung Sook (Lee Mi Sook) and six months after divorced her and married Bang Ja Young (Park Ji Young) 6 months later.

Sung Sook and Ja Young meet in the elevator wearing the same suit. Sung Sook tells her to take it off and, obviously, Ja Young refuses. Sung Sook tells her that she’s going on air later it the outfit and Jung Young admits that’s she’s going live in it right then. When Ja Young mentions that she wasn’t going to live off her leftovers for long, Sung Sook mentions she didn’t mind it went she took her husband. They both get out of the elevator and rushes a senior to asks who is prettier.

Na Ri is following Hwa Shin from a distance when he finally stops. Na Ri walks right by him and he goes the opposite direction.

Kim Rak comes home to find and ambulance outside his building. He runs over and asks what happened. He’s told that Joong Shin came out to check his mail and rolled down the stairs. Kim Rak takes responsibility for him and gets in the car.

Red gets pulled out of class and told about her father. She is taken to the hospital. Rak asks if she shouldn’t call her mothers and she tells him that she has no mother.

Chi Yeol and Dae Goo both get up to leave. Their teacher tries to stop them because the school’s average will drop if the 1st and 2nd best student walks out. They tell him that it’ll go up a bit because red isn’t there. The both leave after that.

Hwa Shin comes out of a public bath all shaved. He arrives at the stations and spots Na Ri. He picks up her bags so she wouldn’t hear him but she already noticed him. She mentions that the recruitment ad is about to show.

Red is at the hospital trying to contact her grandmother when Hwa Shin’s advert plays. The 2 woman are appalled that Hwa Jin’s is the first to play. The entire recruitment video is like a really bad music video.

Red gets pissed at the screen, mainly at seeing her mother so happy while her father could die. She throws her phone at the screen and tells her that she should save her father.

Hwa Jin mentions that it was art for once but it would have been better without the glittery shirt. He Notices Na Ri isn’t beside him and next to him. She sneaks behind him to give him a breast exam. He pulls her behind the scream and asks why she’s going it. She tells him that his chest feels the same as her mother’s who died from breast cancer. She tells him that it run in the family so she checked regularly. He mentions that he’s a man so obviously, breast cancer can’t be a thing.
