It’s kind of awesome having my morbid fantasies fulfilled. Now if only I could order that bus to run over other characters I’m less than pleased with.
Eun Jae says her farewell and the next day Captain Kevin shows up in her place. Moo Yul is confused and keeps asking questions about where Eun Jae has gone, like a little boy looking for a puppy. Tae Han tells him that they don’t really need Eun Jae now that the Karaoke incident has been forgotten in the wake of his other scandals.
Eun Jae mopes at home. Her family decides not to ask her what’s wrong because they are afraid she’ll actually tell them. She asks her father how his dating is going. He smiles excitedly and she asks when they can meet her. He tells her that they can anytime.
Dong Soo packs up on the rooms so he can make Soo Young an artist studio. Moo Yul helps. Dong Soo asks him how far he’s gotten with Jong Hee after Moo Yul wonders what it will be like to play catch with his own son. Moo Yul admits that he nearly slept with Jong Hee, but then the cat hissed at them. Dong Soo is surprised that would stop him, but Moo Yul admits things aren’t back to normal. All his joy with Jong Hee comes from remembering the past not in making memories now.
Soo Young has an uncomfortable conversation with Jong Hee. Jong Hee yet again affirms that she wants to be Moo Yul’s wife. Soo Young seems to be upset that Jong Hee is following the same path she followed, but will still be loved by Soo Young’s mother.
Pretty Boy Waiter digs through Dong Ah’s bag to find her ID. He’s been tipped off. Something is up. Dong Ah, watch out. He may be pretty, but he’d look even prettier with your blood splatter on his face.
After looking at her ID he asks her why she is working there when she’s not desperate for money. She tells him that she doesn’t need to work since she got a large insurance check after her parents died in a car accident. He remarks that dead parents are better than parents that abandon you. Poor, poor Pretty Boy with your abandonment issues. I’ll forgive your beautiful blood-spattered face if you kill someone, well anyone except Dong Ah. I’ll volunteer Jong Hee.
Dong Ah meets with Tae Han and reports that she is becoming more friendly with Pretty Boy. Tae Han is surprised that they talked about their parents and upset when Dong Ah suggest seducing him. Tae Han tries to figure out a reason she can’t, but all out is that she isn’t pretty and can’t seduce Pretty Boy. Hehehe.
Tae Han drives her home while eyeing her nervously. He asks if she if mad, but she isn’t. He then tries to invite himself in. Dong Ah is oblivious at first, but eventually gets the hint and offers him tea. While drinking his tea he admits that he didn’t come for the tea and wants to seduce her. She laughs until she realizes he is serious. He asks her more formally to date him and she accepts with a “Thank You.”
Eun Jae looks at her family photos and, no, it’s not suspicious at all that her mother’s face has been cut out. Dong Ah pops into her room to brag about her new boyfriend. She encourages Eun Jae to get Reporter Go, but Eun Jae tells her that she’s given up on “Reporter Go.”
Moo Yul starts his community service. His fans come out to support and cheer him on. Each time one is particularly obsequious Moo Yul imagines Eun Jae’s voice muttering about them. By his break he is tired and calls Eun Jae. She ignores the “Perverted Gangster’s” phone call. Instead she washes a rug with his face on it. I love that the one red thing in her house is what they use to wipe mud and poop off on.
Eun Jae visits her mother in a little florist shop. She buys white carnations, a flower used for the dead. She tells her mother that her father is dating now and uses that to degrade her mother. Eun Jae gives her the flowers, saying that she died a long time ago, but Eun Jae only recently got enough heart to feel sad about it. Eun Jae’s mother calls Eun Jae’s father afterward and tells him that they should cancel their plans. Eun Jae’s father visibly loses all joy as her brother watches.
Eun Jae gets a new assignment, guarding a woman who is trying to get divorced, and casually brings up that Moo Yul is looking thinner these days. Hehe.
Eun Jae isn’t the only curious one. Moo Yul asks Captain Kevin about Eun Jae. Captain Kevin explains that he though Eun Jae was the next national Judo champion. She kept attacking though and after she lost she couldn’t move and Kevin carried her away while she was still crying.
Dong Soo notices that one of the player is having a problem with his wrist. He gives some advice about swinging differently, but later hears the player complaining about the advice and wishing Dong Soo would just leave.
Dong Ah and Pretty Boy get off work. They separate, but Pretty Boy looks back at her. Dong Ah gets in the car with Tae Han and he drops her off at home. They make modifications to Dong Ah’s list of things she wants to do while dating and Dong Ah gets out. She goes in and we see Pretty Boy staring after her. Oh no! He knows where you live. He’ll sneak in and steal Dong Ah’s porn stash and Eun Jae’s Seagull paraphernalia.
Moo Yul notices some of his fans hugging a cardboard cut out and starts to ask Eun Jae if she does the same thing for her favorite player. One look at Captain Kevin is enough to
scar him for life remind him that Eun Jae is missing. He hunts her down.
Eun Jae is done with guarding the divorcee, but as the client is about to leave her husband comes after her. Eun Jae steps in and the man starts to yell at her. He even asks if Eun Jae is his ex-wife’s lover. Eun Jae takes it, but when Moo Yul hears he steps in and threatens the man. Hmm. Now why does this situation seem familiar? Oh yes, when Moo Yul beat up Pretty Boy to defend Jong Hee. Moo Yul may not know it yet, but Eun Jae is on the same level as Jong Hee.
Jong Hee let’s her cat out after a conversation with Moo Yul’s housekeeper who notes that Jong Hee is wearing Moo Yul’s couple ring. At this point I realize that the writer must be psychic. I wish the cat would show back up a bloody corpse and it does. Admittedly, it’s a weak scare tactic. If you really want to creep someone out then you should just return a limb. They’ll know you have the cat and it’s in pain. They’ll also never look at packages the same way again as they fear the next package will be a tail. This is why you keep
Timmy cats away from velociraptors.
Eun Jae tries not to interact with Moo Yul, but he insists on taking her out to dinner. He asks if she can really just leave him as if they are strangers. Eun Jae insists that they are strangers, but Moo Yul argues that she likes him and he likes her too. Unfortunately he adds that she is like a little brother to him. He does correct it and make her a little sister, but the harm has already been done. Eun Jae tells him that she doesn’t want to be his sibling. He assumes that she looks down on him and wants nothing to do with him. They conversation ends with Moo Yul telling her that he doesn’t want to see her again.
Eun Jae is about to leave when Moo Yul gets a calls from Jong Hee. She can’t say a word, but does manage a scream or two. He rushes to her side with Eun Jae and Captain Kevin in tow. He carries Jong Hee into her apartment and holds her as she thrashes around and tries to calm her down.
Eun Jae finds Jong Hee’s phone outside. She goes into the apartment to return it and sees Moo Yul and Jong Hee in bed… as he tries to calm her down. She closes the door for them and leaves.
Tae Han finds out that there were no video tapes of the hall so they have no suspects. Moo Yul wants to stay with Jong Hee, but he has a busy schedule. No! Don’t you dare ask Eun Jae to be her babysitter. Apparently, he can’t hear and asks Eun Jae to be Jong Hee’s bodyguard.
And this is where everyone who’s only read my Wild Romance recaps realizes I’m a psycho and flees. That or they permanently join my asylum as patients.
I don’t really feel that sorry for Eun Jae. It’s part her own fault she’s miserable. If she’d explained why was trying to steer clear of Moo Yul instead of just quitting he wouldn’t ask her to do such things. People who don’t confess irk me and right now Eun Jae irks me. Sure you could say that she is afraid to ruin her current relationship, but it’s obvious she’s not happy with the way things are now so why not confess and kill all hope, so she can start the recovery process.
Moo Yul’s frustrating too. You don’t ask to be a girl’s hyung. It’s just not right. She may be strong and masculine, but every girl’s got a bit of a feminine side. It reminds me of the time I overheard a child ask their father why I, a “boy” looked like a girl. How should one take that? How do you take it when the man you like asks you to be his little brother before remember that you are a girl?
I’m worried about Jong Hee’s mental disorder. I feel a bout of noble idiocy coming as Moo Yul stays with her out of guilt. He is kind of the reason why her cat died.
Well, I’ll leave you for a week with this picture and a reminder that Dong Ah also owns a pet. For now.
