Yeo-reum gawks at the truffles that the chef brings to the restaurant in preparation for their month of truffle-related dishes, and is shocked to hear how expensive they are. Han Yeo Reum deserves some serious apologies for waiting and standing by her thru this madness and he puts aside his own annoyance after being ditched to smile and feed her takeout - best boyfriend ever! Anyway I'm looking forward to see what will Ki tae do after realized his feelings. Now that Ki-tae's hooked, I'm waiting for Jang-mi to realize her feelings too. They accuse each other of being rude and unmannerly, and Jang-mi goes to her room for some peace. She agreed to be the bad guy, but I guess it's also because it aligns with her own feelings and plans. I love how jittery he is, flinching at every touch and looking everywhere but at her. Anyway, great writing, good cast, and lots of cuteness means that I'm happy.
On Jang-mi's part as well, i think she's not really in love with Yeo-rum, he's just a breath of fresh air and she's having fun but not really in love because when she's with him, its like she's not her total self unlike when she's with Ki-tae. Ki Tae will have to put some serious effort into it if he intends to make that fake marriage real - starting with not insulting her. I've watched a ton of dramas and usually one parent is deceased. Also I find it refreshing that the side pair has a believable potential romance to seriously threaten the main paring - one that's not just leftover feelings from a previous relationship. And she does not realize yet just how crazy it can drive people around you. Jang-mi tries calling Ki-tae again for a rescue, and Se-ah finds his phone where he left it at the gym.
She gets a text from Ki-tae asking her to come outside, and he shyly gives her a gift for her parents. This is one time I just don't have second lead syndrome. While she did not have a malicious bone in her, she was often the biggest ditz and most inconvenient pest in every social situation into which she injected herself. She wants to fill in that loneliness. He is a fun mixture of looks, positive attitude, charming behaviors, good - for- nothingness and a tough background. My problem with Yeo-rum comes in his shadiness.
Han Groo was also meant for that role. She grumbles that she sullied her precious lips for a guy like him, and in front of Yeo-reum no less. So right now I can't blame only her for this situation. All we know is that he is but don't know exactly what drove him to thst point. Moving her to his private domain of security on an island of one. He actually has some charm and character to him. Given how her husband has been treating her, why the hell would she even lift a finger to help him advance his career? Her panic starts to mount at being trapped all alone.
Even though I admit that the value of the company is important - the lesson Jang-mi is slowly learning - they're young and they're having fun and enjoying each other's company; ain't nothing wrong with that. Well, may not be quite the trip she wanted with Ki Tae, but it's something! I think she's just upset that it's all a scheme and not the real deal. It was initially to make Hoon dong jealous but that seems complete now. Yes the actor isn't great, but based on the plot, the poor guy is totally getting shafted by JangMi. I was feeling so so so sorry for JangMi.
The most recent one gotta be Chiaki and Nodame of Nodame Cantabile. It was definitely his episode to shine. Jang-mi tries to just go with the first dress so she can at least deliver the soup to Ki-tae, but Aunt makes her try every single thing in the store and haul the soup pot up and down the stairs, and then takes her to the salon where she makes them redo her hair and makeup about a thousand times. Dating one of those damaged guys is anything but safe and Yeo Reum seems very damaged. Juliette-people cheat all the time but its not like most people cheat just to cheat.
It may also be because she got to know him as a playboy and is herself a bit guarded around him. And I would've been fine with that ending scene if she hadn't just run off in the wedding dress. There's nothing I love more than a smitten male lead who is proactive about his feelings! I darn near went through an entire box of kleenex. She only wants him to marry his ex because of her father's influence. I didn't read those as relieved tears at all but I can totally see it being a mix of the two. Mi-jung quips that her best can be scary, and Mom says the scary thing will be if they actually get married.
This flaw was at the crux of her stalking saga against her first love and it is what propelled her into a series of faux pas with Gi Tae, who did not mince words as he criticized her no, make it character-assassinated her. If you don't care about someone, you don't fear for them, get annoyed by them, or get angry at them. In what universe is blackmailing your ex for his sperm a thing people do? It's still a riot watching how the characters interact. It was Yeo-reum that comforted her. I don't ship Gi-Tae and Jang Mi simply because they are the lead couple, but because they have good chemistry together. His criticism is harsh but she really needs to follow through with wat he says jangeusu most definately she was trying to run away from the situation. Thankfully he's seeing the error of his ways and is beginning to change.
He was, and still is, incapable of anything but cerebral interactions with others. After all, the pres wife likes the crazy girl as a part of the family. She finds Ki-tae at his office and demands to know what he did to her mom. She wants real connection and Yeo Reum is giving that to her because Gi Tae's playground tactics and lack of directness isn't much different from Se Ah's. This is gonna be fun, cant wait till next week! I liked Yeo Reum's character from the beginning, actually.
I don't dislike Yeo Reum or anything, but I simply don't like him as much as I like Ki-tae. This drama is just getting better and better. Yeo-reum says that all his friends are girls, he never had a father to begin with, and his mother abandoned him. She needs a core group of people who love and appreciate her in all her troublemaking, emotional, truthtelling glory. I am still waiting for further ep tho, since we are passing the half mark, I believe there is a lot more to find out about the family relationship. It really adds another layer to compare and contrast the couples' parents and their relationships to each. Her fiancé told her that the apt was special to him co sit held dear memories.
