  • Lee Dong Gun as Kim Shin
  • Jung Yong Hwa as Park Se-Joo
  • Han Chae Ah as Seo Yoo-Kyung

Synopsis:

Mi Rae is a writer working in a broadcasting station YBS. She goes back in time and advises herself from the past to choose the right man so she can have a good life.

My Thoughts:

Marry-Him-If-You-Dare-Front

The very first episode is already intense! It is very fascinating to watch this drama because this is something that is beyond just time-travel. We gets time-travel dramas where the couple falls in love from different era but in this drama the main character travels back in time to find herself, which is a totally different concept to other time-travel dramas in my opinion. This alone gets this drama more points in my book.

Marry_Him_If_You_Dare-0004

First of all, congratulations to Yong Hwa!! *claps* He has gotten so much better since Heartstrings! He is absolutely amazing in this drama and I’m so proud of his improvement. His character in this drama is very lovable which most likely means that he is not going to get the girl in dramaland. Great! I have to wait for my heart to break, AGAIN! *sigh* I thought he finally broke the nice guy curse when he starred in Heartstrings………I guess the curse follows you forever~

I’m loving this drama so far but I just feel really uncomfortable every time Mi Rae and the other Mi Rae are so close. At first thought, you’d think that it is very sweet and warm but then if you think properly, it is just so weird the way Mi Rae is touching Mi Rae affectionately. It is like loving yourself or something and the thought of it makes me feel discomfort.

I’m really shipping Mi Rae and Se Joo so hard but I just know that they won’t end up together, especially since Mi Rae’s future self warns her about it. You know that books and dramas loves going against what is challenging them like Die for Me, the girl chooses to stay with the guy even though she knows that he is a zombie an it’s dangerous. That’s how humans are as well, the more you are warned about something, the more curious you get.

To be honest I don’t really have that much opinion on Marry Him If You Dare so I guess I don’t like it as much as I thought. I mean this drama is not bad but it’s not super amazing either. I’ll watch on to see if it gets more interesting but I doubt I’d be really crazy for it like Empress Ki or The Heirs. I do appreciate the fresh plot though and this is really the reason that I am continuing.

What do you guys think of Marry Him If You Dare? I will just watch maybe 2 or 4 episodes more and if I don’t like it, i’d drop it because I’m too busy to watch something I have little interest on. What about you guys? If you are ahead, please tell me that it will get better! Thank you for reading my post and I hope you enjoy it^^

My Rating: 7.5/10 Turtles

Synopsis:

Lee Soon Shin, the youngest daughter of the Lee household is the least successful daughter. After her father’s death, she finds herself dragged into the entertainment world by the bet of Choi Yeon Ah, a famous actress and Shin Joon Ho, the CEO of a entertainment company.

My Thoughts:

Sunny-Hill-Lee-Soon-Shin-Is-The-Best-OST-Part-2

Since this is a 50-episode drama, there is a lot to talk about but I’m only going to focus on a few main things because I could go on for eternity. Basically this drama is pretty good but I gave it a 7.5/10 because it is too long. Originally, I wasn’t going to watch it but I eventually gave in to my friend’s persistent persuasion.

Lee-Soon-Shin-is-the-Best1

IU is the main actress of this drama so I expected this drama to be the high-school, singing kind of drama but this isn’t. Now that I think about it, I think it is a waste that IU only sang 2 or 3 times in this drama. IU is actually surprisingly good at acting and in fact, she acts as a actress in this drama. Her character is a bit pathetic though but I love that she has her own uniqueness.

The_Best_Lee_Soon-Shin-0002

Talking about IU, her character Lee Soon Shin is too much of a push-over. She doesn’t really have her stable opinion and she is easily persuaded, hence the scam. At first I thought that she is being treated badly by her family but then later on they aren’t that bad at all. This is confusing in my opinion as I can’t make out if the family is actually nice from the start or if they changed.

Lee-Soon-Shin-is-the-Best4

Cho Jung Seok’s character is pretty interesting and since I like him in King 2 Hearts, it doesn’t take long for me to fall for him again. I don’t really think there’s any major change in his character but that’s okay because I mainly focused on IU. His character is really charming and I think it is cute the way he can’t express his feelings to IU.

vjoj

IU and Jung Seok’s chemistry is great in this drama but I expected it since after all, it took them about 40 episodes to bond and finally confess. Usually longer dramas have more chemistry as the characters experience more events together but it also take them more time to finally work out with each other. So I can’t really decide which kind of dramas I prefer, the longer 50-episode ones or the short 16 episode ones. Anyway, I’m just saying that they look good together.

The_Best_Lee_Soon-Shin-0004

Ko Du Shim is such an amazing actress. It is incredible to see how she changes from a warm, kind mother to a godzilla mother that seems like she is on her period. I was so scared at her mood-swings and I felt really sorry for Soon Shin as well since she has to tolerate the anger issues. To be honest, I really didn’t like her and even cursed at her but you know what, that only proofs how fantastic Ko Du Shim is as an actress.

I would love to talk more about the actors but there are a gazillion of them so to make it short, everyone in this drama did a stunning job. Just talking about the characters though one that caught my eye was Bakery Guy, Seo Jin Wook! He is just hilarious all the time and I look forward to seeing him for every episode so kudos to him for making this long drama a better experience for me!

The plot of this drama is interesting but I think it started off a bit to slow and then there’s also this period of long winded who is whose mother and so on. That really dragged out for too long for me and it killed me every episode that went by but somehow I got to the end.

420186_551834294836124_366129305_n

What I really like about this drama is the acting aspect of it. It is like watching a actress you like from when she first debut. Kinda like a diary thing and I think it teaches us that actors are humans too. They all have their hard times and they don’t just always succeed in one go. I think people has this concept of celebrities earning money without lifting a finger. It is true that sometimes they attend events for 10 minutes and they get a butt load of money but think about the times they have to film outside during the winter, without sleeping. It is such a simple yet hard thing to do and we don’t appreciate it.

Spoilers-IU-and-Jo-Jung-Suk-get-too-close-for-comfort-on-You-re-the-Best-Lee-Soon-Shin

In general, this drama is remarkable but I wouldn’t recommend this to you if you don’t have a lot of free time. This is definitely something that you should watch during the summer or winter break. I also wouldn’t recommend this if you are not patient with your romance in dramas since you won’t get it until episode 40. But I have to say that there are lots of romance throughout the drama despite the fact that Soon Shin and Joon Ho only officially date after episode 40.

My Opinion on Empress Ki Episode 5 and 6~

Image

Title: Empress Ki

Main Cast:

  • Ha Ji Won as Ki Seung Nyang
  • Joo Jin Mo as Wang Yoo
  • Ji Chang Wook as Ta Hwan
  • Baek Jin Hee as Tanasili
  • Kim Jung Hyun as Dan Ki Se
  • Cha Do Jin as Top Ja Hae
  • Kim Young Ho as Baek Ahn
  • Choi Moo Sung as Park Bool Hwa
  • Lee Moon Sik as Bang Shin Woo
  • Lee Jae Yong as Wang Go

My Thoughts:

Image

These two episodes are what I call the first “turning point” of this drama. Yoo is dethroned and Seung Nyang’s father dies. These two episodes are full of the starting point or the causes of later events. They are eventful so I watched it twice before writing this post.

Image

First of all, I’d like to talk about Seung Nyang’s relationship with Ta Hwan because they are together for all of episode 5 and some of episode 6. It is hard to say that I ship them now because in episode 6, Ta Hwan betrays Seung Nyang and names her father as the assassin that tried to kill him which indirectly leads to the death of Seung Nyang’s father. Nonetheless, they did have some sweet moments when they are still escaping. I found it really cute when Ta Hwan went out to get medicine for Seung Nyang when she fainted. There are other moments such as them jumping of the cliff together and Seung Nyang trying to warm Ta Hwan’s body with her nearly-naked body. I would totally ship them if it wasn’t for Ta Hwan’s betrayal.

Image

Our other couple, Seung Nyang and Yoo didn’t have much time together but when they did, they met with a BANG! (not literally). Seung Nyang had successfully brought Ta Hwan back to the palace and she is greeted by Yoo with a giant bear hug! There are other sweet moments for this couple as well when Seung Nyang takes care of Yoo on their way to exile. Oh~ did I mention that despite Yoo being in danger of exile, he still chose to beg Yuan officers to let Seung Nyang go. I mean, how sweet is that!

Image

One scene that costs me a box of tissues is when Seung Nyang’s dad died. Seriously! After all those years of searching, Seung Nyang finally found her dad but she can’t reveal her identity because this could kill Seung Nyang’s dad and now he is dying?! Dramaland is cruel! I’m glad that I only know him for 5 episodes, because if it’s anymore, I could become blind from crying so much! I suppose his death is necessary since that’s where Seung Nyang got her idea of revenging and hence the Empress Ki thing. I just hope that everything will go well for Seung Nyang in the future!

Image

Now that I watched two more episodes of Empress Ki, I think I get to understand the characters more. I’m beginning to gain more respect for Yoo and hate Ta Hwan more. Ta Hwan, in my opinion, is just pathetic. I know that Yeon Chul is there to get him and all but I agree with Baek An, I think it is a waste to save Ta Hwan.

Image

The ending of episode 6 is such a cliff hanger and seeing the preview doesn’t help! Ki Se found out that Seung Nyang is a woman and literally striped her to her bandages! That was so intense that I swear I broke the world record for holding breaths! Then for the preview of episode 7, Ki Se dressed Seung Nyang up as a woman and started raping her! I almost choked to death when I first saw that! I’m loving Empress Ki so far and I can’t wait to see more of it!

What do you guys think of Empress Ki episode 5 and 6? I’m loving it! Comment and tell me what you like about Empress Ki! Thank you so much for reading this and I hope you enjoy it^^

My Thoughts: 

That-Winter-The-Wind-Blows-korean-dramas-33482105-1280-720

When I first read the synopsis of this drama I swear I watched a similar drama from somewhere else which I can’t quite remember. I went for it and just as I thought, it is not bad at all. Just from looking at the cast I knew that this is an awesome drama so I started it without hesitation. I just finished this a week ago and since I was busy with the recap, I didn’t have time until now.

sbs-that-winter-the-wind-blows-press-conference

First of all the acting in this drama is no doubt, stunning. As expected with top actors like Zo In Sung and Song Hye Kyo this drama is very well portrayed but Jung Eun Ji impressed me the most. At first I didn’t know that she is an idol actress so I didn’t have any prejudice against. She has successfully impressed me with her natural acting skills! Usually I focus mainly on the main actors but I found my eyes following in every scene she is in so props to this new actress for making this drama even better for me!

jhbjpsg7ldfom5rimjga

Oh Soo is a character you would sympathize with but I don’t feel any of it. He was thrown away by his parents like trash and he just decides to live like trash. Listen Oh Soo, if you are thrown away like that it doesn’t mean you should live like trash! Instead you should live well to let your parents regret throwing you away! I just hate when people use their bad experiences as excuses to do something bad or give up. To me, Oh Soo is no different from the villains of other dramas I watched who use their scarred past as their excuses to be evil.

That_Winter_The_Wind_Blows-0011

On the other hand, Oh Young is not someone that I completely like either. She gives up her life too easily when there are other people fighting so hard for their lives. I think this is why Oh Young and Oh Soo are meant to be together. Both of them fills up for each other’s weaknesses and that’s why Oh Young decides to do the surgery and Oh Soo decides to not live like a walking zombie. In this aspect of the drama, this one thing that pleases me the most.

You know the way dramas always give you some kind of life lessons, in this case, it teaches me that not every one is perfect and that couples are matched because they help each other’s weaknesses with their own strengths. Kinda like – and – equals to a + in maths if you get what I mean.

That-Winter-The-Wind-Blows-4

Kim Bum is superb in this drama and I adore his character because of how loyal he is! But then at the end………..well, let’s just say I didn’t expect him to do what he did just because of Hee Sun. I mean, you see in the drama how protective he is of Oh Soo, even to the point where he slaps Hee Sun for revealing Oh Soo’s secret. So he just caught me by surprise at the end. Side Note, I want to congratulate Kim Bum for finally dating! *claps* I was kinda sad when he didn’t end up with Moon Geun Young in Goddess of Fire but I guess he manage to date her in real life instead^^

that-winter-the-wind-blows-korean-dramas-33719742-1280-720

It is very heart-breaking to see Oh Soo lie to Oh Young while Oh Young completely trusts him. But then if all of that doesn’t happen then Oh Young would have never fallen for Oh Soo. Now that I think about it, it is actually weird how Oh Young falls for Oh Soo. She thinks of Oh Soo as a brother until he kisses her secretly but like just one kiss and she’s in love? I know you can argue that Oh Young has already fallen in love with Oh Soo and that the kiss is when Oh Young realize that her love for Oh Soo isn’t just siblings-kind-of-love but still. Isn’t it too fast?

photo288623

Another thing that frustrates me in this drama is the fact that Oh Young trusts others too easily. It doesn’t seem like it if you look at her attitude to Secretary Wang but to Oh Soo’s dark secrets is revealed one at a time and it seems so fast how she can trust Oh Soo again. But I still like it though. I feel like a hypocrite because whenever relationships are slow, I call the drama dragged out but now in this case I think that Oh Young trusts Oh Soo to fast. Hmmm…..I think I need some consultation:P I don’t even know what I want!

winter16-00720

*SPOILER* The ending of this drama definitely disappoint me though:( It just seems very silly how Oh Soo has to hide from Oh Young even after all that. Oh Young’s eyes are sort of okay but we don’t really know because she is okay one minute and the next she sees Oh Soo and calls him handsome O.o I’m easily confused by things like that and I hate it when things are unclear and complicated. The ending might be artsy but it is definitely not my cup of tea.  *SPOILER ENDS*

thatwinter

I think this drama is unquestionably one of the “Classic” kdrama with the whole brother/sister thing and the girl being blind. Compared to Stairway to Heaven, this is definitely less tragic so if you are looking for something similar to Stairway to Heaven, this drama is certainly for you. The cast and acting is amazing, the plot is well enough and the chemistry of the main romance is surely there so I would recommend this drama to any Kdrama addicts, as well as any one that is just starting to watch dramas. This is absolutely one that hooks you into the world of Kdramaland!

What is your opinion on Oh Soo and Oh Young’s romance? Do you think the ending is a bit silly as well? Comment below and let me know! You are also welcome to share your opinions with me:D Thank you for reading my review and I hope this can help you^^

Episode 12:

Screenshot (1968)

So with Tan offering Eun Sang his hand from the last episode what will Eun Sang’s decision be?

Eun Sang takes Tan’s hand but she tells him that they’ve already gone far enough and lets go of his hand while Tan’s shouts at her saying “Don’t do it!”. Eun Sang walks away, leaving Tan’s hand hanging in mid air. Alone with Tan, Young Do adds, “As usual, you always make people leave”

Screenshot (1971)

Young Do then chases after Eun Sang who tells him to move while crying. Young Do jokes saying that people will think that he has kidnapped her but Eun Sang only cares about Tan, asking if he has left. Young Do still doesn’t get the situation while Eun Sang cries louder, leaving him in the end. Young Do mutters that Eun Sang still wouldn’t let him get close to her.

Screenshot (1974)

Tan is recalling all the intimate moments with Eun Sang on the school rooftop, where they first kissed. Tan sees Eun Sang is in a daze sitting alone in a corner in P.E class until Bo Na and Chan Young comes in, distracting her. Eun Sang notices Tan but avoids his gaze. Bo Na is worried about Eun Sang because she disappeared without even eating breakfast.

Screenshot (1978)

Tan has called Chan Young last night but he didn’t answer. Chan Young learns that Eun Sang has stayed out while Tan finds out that Chan Young hasn’t taken her in. Bo Na pester Eun Sang for Chan Young’s photo ans Eun Sang promises her that she will give it to her soon.Tan has thinks of the connection between Eun Sang going to Young Do’s hotel before and her with Young Do this morning. He thinks that Eun Sang has spent the night there.

In the changing room, Tan asks Young Do if Eun Sang has cried a lot this morning. He warns him that it is not an opportunity for him and walks out.

Screenshot (1982)Screenshot (1983)

In Myung Soo’s hideout, Bo Na is complaining that she looks fat in his photos but Myung Soo thinks that she looks better when she is chubbier. On the other hand, Young Do is laying at his ease on the couch and he is looking through SNS for Eun Sang but only gets a bunch of other random girls that is named Eun Sang. Myung Soo pins a photo of Young Do and Eun Sang on his notice board and notices that the photos around it are all of Young Do and Eun Sang’s. He and Bo Na puts the clues together and concludes that Young Do has a crush on Eun Sang.

Screenshot (1987)

Myung Soo and Bo Na confronts Young Do about it and he admits it. It is surprisingly cute that Eun Sang is actually Young Do’s first love. I guess we can’t blame him completely for his childish behavior but Bo Na reminds him that Eun Sang and Tan has something going on and that Young Do plays a big part in that. Young Do sees the photo of himself looking at Eun Sang up on the notice board and realises how he looks when he looks at Eun Sang. Then Myung Soo also rubs it in saying that first loves don’t blossom and that it is set by the law.

Screenshot (1991)

At home Madame Han is harassing Tan with persistent questions of him and Eun Sang. She doesn’t want Tan in trouble so that he won’t be sent to the States again. Tan makes a good point asking her if she is happy living in the house when she is not even allowed to tell others that she is his mother. Madame Han is upset about it but she thought that she would be added to the family tree very soon when she first took over the master’s room. Unfortunately, that is not the case so now her motivation is for Tan to do well. Tan looks depressed and Madame Han tells him to take off the expression of having no mother when he has two. Tan then tells her to take off the socks (the one that Eun Sang left behind in America) because it is his. Okay……first, this is random and second the socks are actually Eun Sang’s……

Screenshot (1992)

Eun Sang is looking around for houses for rent and she eventually finds one that she is satisfied about and gets the phone number off a house agent. She calls Hee Nam to tell her to bring her clothes when they meet up late.

Screenshot (1994)

Tan runs to a park and sits next to Hyo Shin, who he called early for a chat. Without even a greeting, Tan tells Hyo Shin about having another mother but Hyo Shin thinks of it as a joke. Tan apologies to Hyo Shin for deceiving him for so long and Hyo Shin doesn’t understand why he is telling him that now. It turns out that Tan wants to test on Hyo Shin to see if he would be nervous or not when revealing his birth secret, his conclusion: he is nervous and he thinks that it is super scary. Only now does Hyo Shin believe him but Tan goes for another jog without giving him more details.

Screenshot (2003)

Since Won has found out about Secretary Yoon being the biggest shareholder of Papa Kim’s shares, Won is having difficulty conversing with Secretary Yoon. He is bluntly about it and so it tells so much about Tan. Won is uncomfortable and wonders which side Secretary Yoon is on. Won asks Secretary Yoon what benefits he gets for holding on to Papa Kim’s share. Secretary Yoon doesn’t answer properly and instead shows him his Ipad, saying that this is the best he can help him with his private matters.

On the Ipad is an article about Hyun Joo with the longest heading ever “Young girl raised by the support of the Empire Group stands on the podium as a teacher at Empire High School”. Won is furious that Secretary Yoon didn’t tell him earlier, saying that it is cruel to reveal a girl’s hardships like that.

Screenshot (2012)

Won storms home to Papa Kim’s study when he sees that Hyun Joo is in the room chatting with Dad. Hyun Joo remains quiet while Won disses Dad. Won knows what hardships Hyun Joo will have to endure if the article comes out but Papa Kim is more than proud to be the antagonist, saying that he can’t bear to see Won being so incompetent anymore. Papa Kim than turns to Hyun Joo, calling her shameless for receiving help and money from him and still meeting Won. Hyun Joo manages to utter a “I’ll consider your words seriously” before walking out.

Screenshot (2015)

Alone Won states that he has worked so hard to get to the position he is in today but Papa Kim crushes him, saying that Won is in the position because of the fact that he is his son and that if he isn’t sick then there’s no way Won would be at where he is today. Oh gosh! Why!?

Screenshot (2022)

Hyun Joo exits the house crying and she is seen by Tan who asks her if she is alright. Hyun Joo recognizes him as Tan and tells him that they will meet again. Tan offers to bring her to the bus stop but Hyun Joo just tells him to hold on to Won as a favor and walks on. Won comes out and Tan is like a puppy following him and informing him of the things Hyun Joo told him.

Screenshot (2024)

Won has no intention of following Hyun Joo and gets into his car. But he is stopped by Tan who is concerned about him because Won doesn’t look to good. Won is cold and tells him that he is crossing the line. He is slowly soften by Tan’s persistence and warns him about Papa Kim trailing them, telling him to be careful.

Screenshot (2025)

Tan quietly sits next to Hyun Joo at the bus stop and tells her that Won isn’t coming. Hyun Joo says that she isn’t waiting which can have a double meaning- she isn’t waiting for him to change his priority or she isn’t waiting for him now. Tan wonders if Hyun Joo is Won’s boyfriend and how she could recognize him earlier.

Screenshot (2030)

He then asks her if Won has talked about him before. Hyun Joo answers, quoting Won “My brother is affectionate…….honest……..grown so tall……..and his eyes are like mine”. She comments on how Tan is just exactly as Won has described him. Aww…..I knew that hyung isn’t so cold-hearted bastard! Tan doesn’t say anything but is deep in his thoughts. They don’t talk for a long time even when the bus has taken Hyun Joo away.

Screenshot (2032)

Hee Nam informs to Madame Han in advance that she is only working until the end of the month. Madame Han pretends that she doesn’t care much but as soon as Hee Nam is walking out, she screams out “how can you leave without a word?” but soon realizes that Hee Nam is just going out for a while.  Oh, how I just love these two!

Screenshot (2033)

Eun Sang for once in her life, answers Young Do’s phone but tells him that she is busy. Young Do expresses his gratitude saying that he is thankful that Eun Sang answered her phone even though she is busy. Young Do wants to eat noodles with Eun Sang but she has already hung up before he requests it. Eun Sang walks to meet her mum and notices that Young Do is just a table away from Hee Nam. She ducks back and that’s when she gets another call from Young Do who asks if she wants to eat something else instead. Eun Sang agrees before he even finishes the sentence, eager to get him away.

Screenshot (2036)

She tells him to go to the intersection, where she is supposedly at. Young Do is all smiles, satisfied with himself. He grabs for his motorbike without further delay. Eun Sang meets her mum after making sure that Young Do has left. Hee Nam tells her that she has already informed Madame Han of her departure and Eun Sang updates her with the cheapest room she has found so far.

Screenshot (2039)

Hee Nam is curious about the location of where Eun Sang is staying and she is told that a very pretty and nice friend from school has let her stay in her house. Hee Nam wants to give Eun Sang some side dishes for her to eat but Eun Sang is late for her “part-time job” so she grabs the bag with the uniform and leaves.

Screenshot (2040)

Eun Sang shows up at the intersection where Young Do is waiting. He notes that she is coming from the convenience store and tells her that he was there. Eun Sang shrugs acting like she doesn’t know. Young Do notices the bag Eun Sang is holding and remembers seeing Hee Nam with the bag at the convenience store. Young Do then tells Eun Sang to wait for him for 10 to 15 minutes before he heads off.

Screenshot (2049)

Young Do has gone to Tan’s house to look for Hee Nam to confirm that she is Eun Sang’s mother. He asks her a bunch of questions to which she only answers by nodding. The moment of truth comes out as Young Do asks Hee Nam where Eun Sang is and she types out the reply on her phone. Young Do officially knows who Eun Sang’s mother is and that she is mute.

Screenshot (2051)

Tan sees Young Do leaving as he is walking home. Young Do stops by and is asked by Tan why he is coming from the direction of his house. Of course Young Do doesn’t answer properly and rubs it in Tan’s face saying that he must be angry because Eun Sang didn’t take his hand. Young Do leaves and Tan gets a message from Won, who informs him about the golf meeting with Young Do and his Dad.

Screenshot (2053)

Young Do goes back to the intersection while Eun Sang is inside a shopping mall with the bag of spare clothes given by Hee Nam. She looks through the bag and sees the “I ❤ California” shirt. Eun Sang is reminded of Tan but her mind is soon interrupted by a text sent by Hee Nam, who tells her of Young Do’s visit. Eun Sang immediately rushes out to meet Young Do.

Eun Sang confronts Young Do about the meeting with Hee Nam. She challenges him to bully her or tell everyone about her but warns him to stay away from Hee Nam’s workplace. Young Do doesn’t answer and change the subject to the noodles. Eun Sang tells him to stop avoiding it because she needs to prepare for it. She asks “What are going to do with me?” Young Do snaps “I don’t even know what to do with my wounds, how could I do something about yours?!” Aww:( Young Do seems so desperate saying that he only wants to eat noodles with her when Eun Sang keeps on pestering him to tell her what he is going to do with her.

Young Do and his Dad are preparing for golfing, Dad wants to work with Empire Group so he instructs Young Do to win over Tan while he’s going to lose against Won. Won is coming out from the other side and he orders Tan to not show any weaknesses even though working with Zeus is their only solution. The four meet up and they start golfing.

Young Do keeps on insulting Tan about his family and Tan warns him that he has a golf club in his hand. Young Do brings up Eun Sang which immediately sets Tan on edge. Tan eventually snaps and grabs hold of Young Do’s collar, warning him to not to threaten Eun Sang. Young Do declares that he is not threatening Eun Sang and he tells Tan to stop protecting Eun Sang recklessly because then he really has to reveal Eun Sang’s identity. Young Do then says “If you don’t protect Cha Eun Sang, then I’ll protect everything.”

Tan lets go of Young Do’s collars but tells him that if he has to go back to his old self to win him, then he’ll really die. In other words Tan is going to get rid of everything that Young Do has. Young Do shrugs saying that Tan is only a illegitimate son  but Tan reminds him that he is still the second son to Empire Group. Flashback reveals that Tan went  to Young Do on that day to tell him about his mother but Young Do refuses to listen to him which lost him an opportunity to have a last meal with his mum.

In school Tan totally ignores Eun Sang. Eun Sang walks into the broadcasting room to find a fountain of presents for Hyo Shin who has won an award at the Asian Young Film Awards. Bo Na, the gossiper tells Eun Sang a “huge secret”- that Young Do has fallen for Eun Sang. Eun Sang can only act surprise and I might add, doing a very bad job at it. Hyo Shin comes in thinking that Eun Sang and Bo Na must be talking about him.

Tan knocks the door after rushing in the room. Hyo Shin tells him that unauthorized people are off limit but Tan argues that there in no one in the room that he is not connect to. Tan has heard that Hyo Shin has won an award and he asks him about the genre he is getting the award for- Is it horror? Scary? Something that is like Friday the 13th. Hyo Shin points out that it is more Eun Sang’s taste. How the hell does he know that?! Bo Na is surprised and Eun Sang lists the genres she likes-horror, thriller, occult, splatter, etc. Her dream is to film a horror movie that is full of hopes and dreams.

Hyo Shin notices that Tan and Eun Sang are avoiding each other’s gaze. Bo Na hilariously tells them that they don’t have to do it for her sake. Haha…..poor Bo Na, still thinking that Tan is not over her. Tan decides to leave saying that he is caught and that he has already seen the person he wants to see. Bo Na thinks it’s her but we all know well that it is Eun Sang.

Rachel is attending Esther’s fashion function and is surrounded by Rich Ahjummas who are sucking up to her. Rachel goes to her mum complaining about the event being so long. She notices Ye Sol’s mum and that’s when she learns that Ye Sol’s mum is the owner of a largest bar in GangNam. Ye Sol’s mum is talking to Madame Han on the phone about Eun Sang and Tan. It is so nice to see that Madame Han has someone to share secrets with.

Madame Han mentions that Hee Nam is leaving and she sounds quite upset about it. Ye Sol’s mum warns her about her secret being out and then Hee Nam comes in, notifying Madame Han of Rachel and Esther’s visit. Madame Han storms out to the living room to confront Second Madame who blames it on Tan, saying that Tan planned it out.

Eun Sang is wondering around when she meets Tan who greets her with questions- Do you like not seeing me? Do you like letting go of my hand? Do you like not seeing me. Tan tells her that it is nice to meet her in his dreams last night, causing her to fluster and orders him to leave. Tan surprises her with a sudden kiss, asking her if she thinks that he will leave just because she asked.

Tan continues saying that there’s no call or text from her even though she misses him. Eun Sang protests saying that she didn’t miss him but is attacked by another sudden kiss. Tan warns her not to lie again and tells her to not go home today.

Rachel, Esther, Second Madame and Papa Kim were dining and having nice, modest conversations when Tan joins them. It is so weird to see Rachel acting so nice and polite. Tan invites Rachel to go to his room and tells her in advance that he is going to reveal his weakness. Rachel doesn’t get what Tan is talking about and notices the dream catcher that is hanging up in his room.

Second Madame pesters Madame Han and offends her, saying that she is still in the same place as she was 18 years ago. Then she splashes water at her for no reason. Tan comes in quietly and wipes water off Madame Han’s face. Second Madame leaves and Tan silently slips his hand into Madame Han’s. Tan drags Madame Han out and lets the cat out of the bag. He introduces Madame Han as his biological mother and himself as Empire Group’s second and illegitimate son.

TWICE!

Madame Han takes all of the blame, saying that she ordered Tan to do it because it is too hard for her. Tan of course clears his mum’s name saying that he will take responsibility and leave the house but tells his Dad to take care of Madame Han. Papa Kim leaves, speechless while mum cries, asking him how he could do this. In her room Madame Han panics, wondering what they are going to do now. Tan apologies for the mess.

Eun Sang is at her part-time job but she screwed up most of her work because she is too busying pondering. Eun Sang walks out to take the trash that she has forgotten to do earlier. She turn around and sees Tan standing a few meters away from her. They stand at their spot, staring at each other .Tan starts crying and Eun Sang starts tearing up too.

The End.
