I feel the love coming back to Soon-jin and Mu-han. There were little touches in yesterday’s episode that made me think, perhaps, they will stand a chance. Just little glimmers here and there. I am not familiar with this writer though, so who knows what they have in store.

Countdown: RECAPPING!

SJ storms into MH’s office and sees him reading the jelly section of his book. She says he is more cruel than the person she know. She doesn’t need his love. I beg you, one last time, can you be a witness.

He says he will. So, let’s finish it. Let’s separate. he gets up and leaves.

MH VO – I decided to love you a lot….Let’s get married, let’s get married….you do whtever you like, use me as you wish.

SJ crumbles to the floor and destroys MH’s desk. She picks up a lamp and throws it into his displya cabinet. Glass goes everywhere. He comes back in and tells her not to move. But she is frozen and a tear trickles down her face. He tells her to stand up and ends up pulling her up. Then we cut to him nursing her wound in bed.

She has a pretty bad cut on her wrist.

SJ – I lost all the trials, Just stop, stop…everyone said, whenever they see me, they got suffocated. No one was there, no one. I continued the trial because they were the only ones listening to me. But the trial ended also. I was lonely so I wanted to go to my daughter back then. It’s not your fault….someone told me it wasn’t my fault….an unknown guy. It comforted me. I wanted to return the favor to you. It’s not your fault, it’s not your fault. I got angry because that person was you. The one I thought was on my side was actually…now I want you to throw away your guilty feelings. What I wanted from him wasn’t guilty feelings.

She grabs his hand and tells him to take care of his wound first. Her wound, she will take care of it. Sorry to confuse you, it was love to me. I will leave, I can’t stay here anymore.

She lets go of his hand. Tears are all around.

MH – Trial…i will go to the trial, don’t worry. I gave all the evidence to your lawyer so it will help.

SJ leaves with her suitcase. She stands on one side of the door and MH stands on the other. They are both reflective as SJ walks to the elevator. But she hesitates as if she expects him to come out from the apartment. But she takes a deep breath and presses the button. The elevator comes and she slowly wheels her luggage ont oit and watches the door to 501 as the elevator doors close.

MH is frozen on his side of the door and then we cut to him back in his library looking at all the glass on the floor and nothing at all.
Outside, YD is sitting on her sutcase thinking about whether she should go to her appa or not go to her appa. She thinks about the conflicting stories that SJ told her about coming and then not coming to live with them. SJ comes out at that time with her suitcase. YD thinks that is the best thing ever that she is leaving. Everyone cried at her wedding, but they break up this easily. He never smiled at her like that, but he thought he must be in love. Adults are strange, how can the pretend so well.

SJ tells her that she failed, but YD should succeed. She should feed her appa well and show her pretty spring blossoms. YD is still selfish and says that hey father should do this to her. You should leave. SJ sighs and says, I’m leaving.

YD goes upstairs and wants to live with appa. But he is all like, what is this? YD says that the person you kicked out told her to come and live there with him because she prepared a room for her. You shouldn’t kick out a woman this late at night.

MH goes to the room he set aside for SJ and sees an empty room with a kids teddy bear in it. He smiles. But YD thinks this is inadequate. Where is her bed? He tells her that she can sleep in his bed for the night. But seh says that she doesnt’ like it, buy her a bed. But she says she will live with him and she will be successful, unlike someone.

SJ tries to sleep in her new tiny tiny tiny apartment. She thinks about what her lawyer told her about MH. In 501, MH also thinks about SJ. They both think about each other and the last time they were happy riding bikes together. She tries to take sleeping pills to sleep. Meanwhile MH sits in the same position until morning. He watches the sun rise from his bedroom and says, good morning over and over again.

IS wakes up and then MR bust into the room like the living dead. she says that she drank too much. Her hair is all over the place and IS wonders if she wore rain clothing out? MR says she might have tried to kill that guy again. he tells her he will buy some medicine, so change clothes. he goes out and calls Switzerland, he is going there. MR heard him though. She thinks it is another woman, she will kill her! This Switzerland woman!

He says it is nonsense, it isn’t like this. But she thinks it is! It is because she is menopausal! Let’s go there together, give me the address!
MH pulls out the food his mother-in-law packed for him and starts to prepare it. YD is at the table as well. MH prepares a nice breakfast for the two of them with YD staring at him the entire time.

YD complains about something but MH just looks at the medicine that SJ told him to drink without doubts. There is a ring on the bell. Some delivery people are there with a lot of furniture for SJ’s room. it is all her furniture, slightly used. YD hates it and doesn’t want to use it. But then YD sees pictures of EXO on the table and loves it. She asks her father if he knows EXO.

Meanwhile, SJ got a job at a flight attendant school. She walks around the fake airplane and two ladies ask her who she is. SJ says she is sunbae, she says she worked for her airling and the girls tell her that they really want to work for that airline! That airline is the best! SJ tells them that it is very competitive.

MH finds out that SY knows that he is dying. They are meeting at a bookstore cafe and talking about it. Now she knows why he didn’t meet with her for 6 years. SY tells him not to give up, if he can’t do it in Korea, then he can come to the US. But he says that he tried it for 6 years. He decided it this time. She tells him to think about it this time, for his daughter. He tells her to take YD with her, she will be hurt either way.

SY says that YD left because he will die soon or because of who he is. She should know his decision. But he wants to keep it secret from her, she is already suffering too much due to him. But SY doesn’t think this is a good thing. He didn’t tell her before. maybe he is right, but because of the words you didnt’ say, it hurt her forever, if you said one thing, she shoudn’t leave. To me and her.
Elsewhere, SJ walks down the street after leaving her interview. She sees the company mans car, sighs, and hops in annoyed and without a word. She sits in the back and the company man is driving. he is all shocked. He asks what is up. She asks him to give her a ride to her lawyers so he is following her anyway. So lets do this comfortably.

SJ goes to her lawyers office and sees the corrupt lawyer there. She wants to know why he is coming out from there. He tells SJ that her lawyer was his trainee before. Also, how did you marry your witness. Yes, I know everything. You marred to make him the witness, poor dying guy. See you in court. Fighting.

SJ takes a deep breath and goes into her lawyers office. The lawyer checks her watch and says that she came a little earlier. SJ smiles and says that she came by car, not the subway. She also mentions that she saw the other lawyer. Her lawyer tells her that he came there to argue that the husband as a witness is troublesome. She left her evidence with him so it will help. SJ wants to know what the evidence is, can you show me? She says that she submitted it with a copy.

SJ found the autopsy doctor. the lawyer says where he is wasn’t important, what is important is that he didn’t testify before. SJ thinks a lot of time passed, so he might change his mind, like someone.

MH says that Singapore and China also imported this jelly so their might be some more cases. He will find them. But IS has to take care of her, promise me. IS says he will, but he has to promise him something. He wants to go to Switzerland with him together. But MH thinks IS will become a convict if he does. IS says he will take that chance, MH decides how he dies and IS decides how he will live. They should each respect each others choices.

Elsewhere, SJ gets a call from SY. It is an unknown number on her phone. SY wants to meet with her.

At the bar, MH tells MH that YD is with him now. MH thinks back to his mother getting sick and dying. Each moment was painful. He remembers that. Then he father died of an accident. But it was quick so he didn’t have enough time to think about it. it was okay by himself. He hopes it will be the same with YD. He doenst’ want to show her that he will suffer.

SY reminds SJ that she warned her that she was marrying with a bomb. She lost her daughter with his commercial. The person who made the snack is quiet, but he accepted it, what more do you need? SJ says that she just wants to stop, he should have been honest to her, if he was like that then they wouldn’t have started. But SY wonders if she really thinks that? So she started this because she was alone? But she isnt’ afraid anymore? he tried to disappear from us, he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. He wants to die alone. I can’t even imagine how scary it is. If you can’t do it, then I will do it.

SJ says that she can do it. SY tells him to stop him, he doesn’t do it for me, but maybe he will do it for you. SJ wants to know what he is talking about. SY tells her, he applied for euthanasia.

Cut to MR holding a bow and arrow to IS’s drunken heart. But he says that he brought something for her! he will show it to her! He comes back in with a tree! lol. He says, this is my heart. he uprooted it from the ground! MR thinks that woman told him to do it. He says he wants to do it, but he can’t do anything. His heart is falling. He starts crying on the floor and MR angrily throws the bow and arrow on the ground.

In a cafe, HM is treats YD to some food. YD thinks he is the coolest adult she knows. This morning she ate breakfast with appa, but he didn’t say anything to her.

Back at MR and IS’s place. MR wants to know who this woman is! What does she look like? IS starts describing MH. bad mannered….sexy brain…. MR wants to know what he is going to do, is it her or the tree? IS says he is gong to break up nicely, smiling. MR is saddened, so he doesn’t want to break up with her. Okay, I will leave you. IS says that he is going to MH’s hospital, he will say goodbye to him. One way and one return trip. MR understands now and sits on the couch.

In the cafe, SJ sits at the table alone as she thinks about MH applying for euthanasia. She thinks back to MH telling her that he will be her forever snow rice cake. He will not hesitate. SJ starts crying and gets up to leave. A taxi drives her to MH’s place. She gets out and sees YD and her mom walking to the apartment.

Inside, SY asks YD to come to her. YD goes over there and her mom gives her a big hug. YD is confused, why is she doing this. Umma tells her that she loves her and her appa always loved her too. MH is in the door and YD looks at him. She wants him to tell her, I love you, even if he is lying. But MH just tells SY to take YD with her, she has an appa, he is not her appa! he storms off and goes to the living room.

SY comes in and asks him if he can just wait a few more days? You can’t wait that long? Okay, I will take her with me. But you should let her hear, I love you, from her appa. Just do that and we will leave. SY storms out but YD stays and prepares for bed.

SJ is still outside looking at the building and thinking back to what SY told her about how scary it must be to die alone. SY sees her there and also thinks back to SJ saying that she will do it.

Inside, MH looks at his bed and removes the pillows on SJ’s side. He goes to throw them away, but then he gets a call from Soon-jin. He sees it, but he doesn’t answer it. Instead, he gets in bed and pulls the covers up. But he gets up almost immediately. Their song starts playing.

MH paces his house. Then he goes to his balcony and sees Sj standing there. She asks him if he can come down. He should come down because she can’t come there. He should come down. But he tells her not to wait for him, he will not go there. We are done! I am not going to spend my last moments as a sinner next to you.

He goes back inside, SJ is left on the street.
Elsewhere, KS drives with his family and sings along to a kids song as the three of them drive somewhere. KS drops off JM and his daughter and then gets a call from SY. JM gets back in the car and asks who that is. KS tells JM that HM will give everything to SJ, that is why he married her. JM wonders why he will do that. They just started dating, that is 20 million dollars, no one will do that.

KS goes to the coffee shop and meets with SY. He tells JM that she will have to drive to work alone. He meets with SY and asks her what she needs. SY wants to know if he can fire her daughter, they need to go back to the States soon. KS starts to ask questions about MH, he said he started to love SJ and it feels like he knew SJ. All SY knows is that all of this is for SJ. They both don’t know why though. Perhaps SJ changed him. She asked SJ to stay next to him. KS asks, so SJ knows it? She tells him, yes.

Mu-han finishes a drawing in his book and writes, see you tomorrow on the front of the book. Then the Apollon president comes in blowing his nose. Mu-han says he will be in the trial no matter what happens, it is the only thing he can do for her. Apollon plays a recording that Mu-han said from several years ago. He says that he can recover their image but what about his? He didn’t even know that it had this defect, but he made a commercial about it and put it in his book, it will follow him forever. What should he do?

The Apollon president wonders if it is okay to play it for SJ. He doesn’t’ want his wife to see his real face. he has more of these recordings as well. He may want to apologize, but she isn’t going to just accept you apology. Think about it.

MH breaks his pen as the man walks out.

Outside, KS runs to the building and sees Apollon guy. He runs back to him and tries to grab him. Doesn’t he remember him? he asks who he is. KS says he is SJ’s ex husband. But Apollon president doesn’t care. Everyone in this country asks money for their dead kid. You are selling your dead daughter, you should just stay home, you are only protesting to get more money (that is basically the same thing that politicians said when the kids ship went down in Jeju). KS hits him across the face. But it looks like that might have been the presidents plan. He says he will go to the hospital, take this guy to the police. He will not give him any break, he will follow the law. Then he tells Apollon that he will remember who he is from now on.
SJ meets with the doctor, but he doesn’t want to testify. He says he is so busy and he doesn’t remember. He does autopsy’s for 1000 people. Please leave before the students come in. SJ thinks back to her lawyer saying that MH is the only one that wanted to repay her out of all those people.

She leaves the doctors office and thinks that it isn’t his fault. It’s not your fault. She walks among the plum blossoms and thinks about if it is pretty because it is blossoming or because it is falling. he thinks they are both pretty. MH is also walking among the plum blossoms.

Split screen of the two of them walking.

The lawyer didn’t show up to the trial! SJ’s lawyer is missing. She doesn’t know where she is, she is not accepting her phone calls. The other lawyer snickers. The judge says they will give her ten more minutes.

MH comes in and SJ turns in her seat to see him. He looks like death just walked in, but at least he is there.

He slowly walks down the aisle and sits in the witness chair. Another song starts playing. He looks at her and she looks at him. He gives her a small nod.

Fade Out

MH – When we first met, she was crying. One year later, two years later, three years later, she was always crying. I didn’t let her know I know her. Ten years past and my life destroyed her life. Her life overcame my life. She is still crying becuse I still can’t approach her. I should approach her, wiper her tears, and leave.

They meet after the trial (?). SJ is softly crying and MH wipes her tears as she looks at the sheep at the zoo.

Montage of all their happy moments together.

Fade Out

MH – We came back here again
SJ – Let’s try it again (start again), I think I will try to love you
MH – I will be your miracle
SJ – Do you think any miracle will happen between us?
MH – It already happened to me.
MH – Don’t treat me as a patient, treat me as a man.
SJ – Should I…do you like it….what what what?
MH – Because I like it, as long as I am next to you, I won’t make you lonely.

      Same time next week Amirah! I am so happy that it looks like MH and SJ are going to be back together. It stinks that her lawyer flaked on her, but at least MH was still by her side. I really hope MH’s wife’s family steps up and represents SJ in the case. I feel like the construction money will out power the food company money. That’s me hoping though. 🙂

      Yes, that was a nice moment even though it was clouded by tears in the eyes of both of them.

    Thank you for the live recap, V!

    I mistakenly thought there were 32 episodes. What a relief— it seemed pretty anti-climactic otherwise (which is always possible for K-dramas!)

      April 11, 2018 / 11:05 am

      That ending would have been sooooo anti climactic! Though it did feel like a last episode with how the production team showed all of SJ and MH’s happy moments.

    Thanks for the recap, V!
    I have been reading the recap like an addict on drug and crying on how the show progress and yet refused to watch the show since episode 20?

    Took the courage and watched it till episode 32… left me crying buckets and felt so heartbroken and heartache for SJ and MH.

    I was totally immersed into the drama.
    I cried. I laughed. I ached.

    I hope it will be a happy open ending for all of us.

      Yeay…i hope so…i’m crying so much since i watch this drama…

      April 13, 2018 / 3:45 am

      I hope it is a happy ending too. Or a somewhat satisfying ending at least. The ending of the last episode looked like MH and SJ reconciled or will reconcile, I’m happy about that. I hope the court case doesn’t end like that though. It was so much build up and then to be let down by the lawyer not showing up?
