Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food (Something in the Rain) Live Recap Episode 7

Live recap for episode 7 of the Korean drama Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food (aka Something in the Rain) which airs on JTBC on Friday and Saturday at 23:00 Seoul time, and stars Son Ye-Jin and Jung Hae-In

jtbc

Appa found out about Jin-ah sneaking out of the house but he is giving her some leeway with it. Seung-ho also basically found out with that big hug Joon-hee gave Jin-ah in the police station. I have a feeling they will have to come clean in the next two episodes. The next one on the list to tell should be Kyung-sun, though I can understand Jin-ah’s hesitance in telling her. Perhaps the father could be told next. The absolute last person to tell would be the mother. I have to say, I love Jin-ah’s Appa. He is so sweet and understanding and not as clueless as he seems. Her mother, on the other hand, grates on my nerves. I see her wish for her kids to marry way way up will be a large source of conflict.

We are busy in the next two days so there won’t be a live recap tomorrow (Saturday). We will try to get the post up in the evening though.

OPENING
We open at the police station. JH immediately hugs JA. The brother is all like, what? GM starts yelling, I told you, they are dating, you made me crazy! I am going to sue all of you! The police tell them to sit back down.

SH wants to talk to Noona, JH tells him that they can talk later, but the brother hits his hand away. GM’s umma shows up and meets JA for the first time. She asks her how she can make someone like this. But SH basically says it is GM’s fault. GM says, you denied it so much…

they all leave. GM gets int he car and GM’s mother wants to talk to JA. SH doesn’t want her to talk to his noona, an he talks to her son? JH says that we should leave. The Mom asks who JH is, is he also a brother? JH has a hard time saying what he is, but HA says, he is my boyfriend. The brother is shocked.

Solem music plays as JH just stands on the corner. SH and JA already left and JH is left just standing there as the music plays. We cut to JA in the car, her phone is all broken. Her and her brother drive off quietly. JH also drives off quietly.

JA and her brother get home. He goes inside without talking to her, she drags her feet behind him. they get to the front door to the building, JA is still dragging her feet to go inside. SH opens the door and asks her what he is doing over there, just come one, go in. JA says sorry and talkes off running. SH runs after her for a few steps but then stops.

JA keeps running, it looks like she is going to try the shortcut. Sh runs through the shortcut and gets to the fence. She tries to find the entrance to break through the fence. But then she sees him on the other side of the fence. He runs up the hill to her and goes throught he fence on her side. They hug and hold each other for a long time. She burried her head in his chest. he pats her on the back.

Fade to both of them in his car. But they are quiet. he is looking at her but she isnt’ looking at him. She takes a deep breath. Then she kid of looks near him, he grabs her hand and holds it with both of his hands.

At home, her brother is at his desk, thinking. He rubs his eyes. then he hears someone coming in. He gets up, turns off the light, and goes to bed. JA walks to the hall and looks downt he hall, possibly to her brothers room, but she goes to her room instead. She sits on the floor in her room and holds her legs as she thinks as well. She holds her head for a long moment.

Black screen.

MORNING
JA talks to her mother in the kitchen. They just talk about last night and how she looks okay, what did she do with KS… SH comes in, but he leaves right away without saying anything.

Later, JH says that he will talk to SH about it. JA thinks, what happens next? I need to talk to your sister about it. JH jokes, we are man and woman meeting and dating, there is no problem. She says when it say it like that, it feels like it is nothing, but why am I having a hard time with my little brother only. JH says that he can get all the blame, dont’ worry, I will do well. JA says, if you dont’ behave well then I will hit you.

He drops her off at work. JA waves as he drives off and then looks up at the sky. She is at the coffee chain spot. the owner asks her if something is up there? What is she looking at? She says it si nothing, she sees nothing.

FRIENDS COFFEE SHOP
SY says that KS is spotless so people will think it is too good. KS thinks she is giving her good grades because of JH. they laugh. KS asks about Gangwangdo, how was it? But SY doens’t know what she is talking about.

Cut to BR calling someone outside. She says hello, I am BR…calling someone…

Ah, it looks like she is calling for JH and this is his friends phone. The friend gives his phone to JH. JH answers it….yes…haha…yes…haha…ah, you want to buy me dinner….okay, i will give you my number, call me directly next time….i am okay anytime, call me anytime….yes….

The man asks if this is the woman? Joon-hee….finally you are grown up. I will take care of SY. He says thank you….cham.

FRIENDS COFFEE SHOP
The friend and SY talk about going to Gangwangdo with BR. KA says JH never talks about women, are they dating? It seems like they are close. BR is also her friend so maybe they are also close. What type of woman does JH like? KS says, are you asking me what about you? She says that is true. They ask about BR’s family, KS says she is from a very very very good family. Her parents want that a lot. JH isn’t easy right?

PHONE SHOP
JA is trying to get a new phone, but it looks like GM owns the phone. He has to come and cancel the phone. What if he can’t come? then you can’t change it. She says that she pays everything but the phone person say it doesn’t matter. By law she can’t change the phone by herself.

JA goes to work and is pulled to the side by BR. SY seees them and is angry at seeing them together. BR tells JA that she owes her. They are on the rooftop. JA says she feels like she owes BR her entire life. BR says he doesnt’ understand, why can’t you just date him, he is not your real brother or anything. they joke about common law things. BR wonders if he is good enough to overcome all those obstacles. JA says he is, whenever she sees him, her heart pumps and is filled iwth eletricity. BR jokes, let me see your heart, is it gone? JA laughs and says that she never thought they would be talking about their love life together. Then she asks to borrow her cell phone.

JA sees that her nickname is tamborine in her phone and his nickname is tamborines boyfriend. JA calls him from BR’s phone and pretends like she is someone else. She laughs and asks him if he is working.

Cut to them both eating.

JH wants her to buy another cell phone, it will be too uncomfortable. She says she will buy one, he wants to go with her but she says, no no no, I will buy it. Then she asks him if he wants to drink some wine? He says it is okay, but he is driving, he will take her home. But she says she will take the subway. JA mentions that they need to be careful of her mother and things. JH thinks she is hiding something from him. She says nooooooo, I am not hiding something from you, you should know if I am hiding something. She keeps eating.

They leave. He tells her to take a cab, but she says she likes the subway more. They hug, JH says no one is watching. Then he tells her to call when she gets home. They watch each other as she goes downt he subway. JA sits for the subway, waiting. But then JH runs down and sits with her. She sighs. She says she always takes the subway, she can just go home. But he says that she can take his phone, she will call him from his workphone. She thinks his sister might call. Or what if another woman calls?

He says he is not that stupid, he told all thoe girls not to call him anymore. JA says she will erase all the girls in his phone. Give me your phone. He hands it over and walks her to the subway. They stare at each other at the subway door like two love sick puppies. They wave over and over again and smile until the door close. He motions for her to call him and seh agrees. then the train leaves and he runs after it until it is too fast for him to run along. OSo he waites and watches it until it is completely out of sight. He slowly walks back.

Inside the subway, JA pulls out his cell phone and thinks for a moment before checking his photos. She looks at all his pictures of the two of them together and of her. She laughs as she look at them. Then she gets to the photo of herself in the car sleeping.

There music plays, “Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman…”

She thinks back to that night were she cried and then got out of the car and told him that she was okay. They got back in the car and she gell asleep. He took her photo at that moment. She said he took one, but he denied it. She said to give her her cell phone, but he wouldn’t hand it over, he just told her she drooled and stuff, so wh would I want a photo of that. Later she said he better not show it to anyone. She jokes that she is his noona, thank you for today, when we have time, I will buy you a meal. Bye Bye, he leaves and she watches him go.

Int he subway, she sighs and says, whydid I do something stupid! I want to erase everything! But she looks around at everyone looking at her.

JA – after you met me, did you suffer a lot?
JH – of course, because we do everything we houldnt’ do (?)

They keep talking, she wonders why she likes him (he likes her?) he says, lets hang up. She is all like, did he really hang up? He is still at work and smiling. He answers the phone thinking it is JA, but it is his sister. KS tells him to be careful, another woman is looking after him. He says all the woman in that building like him. SHe says JA doesnt like him, that make him laugh a lot, he says, that’r right.

Then they talk about his cell phone and where is it? He says he might have left it somewhere, KS says that she doens’t expect him to call her, but just let her know that he is alive. But then he remembers…noona! He picks up the phone, but it goes to voicemail, he thinks, she listens to me well. And he smiles as he works some mroe.

COFFEE COMPANY
All the woman sit around adn look at the forms. They think, can they really put the accusers name? they will know even if we don’t put the name. But they think, maybe that is a way for us not to have any backfire. They start to fill out the forms and all the perverts look at them, worried.

JM looks at CG working and then goes and sits down at his desk. YI goes to the an office with paperwork. She hands them over, but she sees his computer. The camera scrolls from the computer to HG talking nap and not working at all. She slams the door as she leaves and he wakes up.

COFFEE SHOP
JA talks to SY at the franchise location. They talk about BR and JH. SY wants to know if she is pushing BR and JH together, why would you do that, you aren’t that good of friends. JA says she doens’t care about other peoples love life. SY says that JH’s family is looking for a higher family. She wonders what her parents are like.

But it looks like KS mentioned JA’s mother and father.

Cut to the parents at home. The father goes somewhere but doesnt’ tell the mother. She says he isnt’ doing anythign so great. he gets a little upset and gives her a look. She tells him to call her. Appa goes to a cafe and takes a nap. Then GM comes in. They sit and stare at each other.

Appa – so are you talking about JH
GM – I don’t know JH or not, but that guy, SH’s friend, JA is dating him and said that he is her boyfriend.

Appa drinks his coffee and sets it on the table, he sighs.

SH AND JH
SH leaves and JH is standing outside. SH asks why he is there. JH says he knows why he is there. SH says he should kneel and beg him. He storms off.

APPA AND GM
Appa – so what? why do you want to meet me?
GM – you should apologize to me, you treated me as a bad guy, i want your apology
Appa – i think i was right
GM – she is meeting someone
Appa – you started it first, there is no reason she can’t meet someone
GM – but she is meeting your brother sfriend
Appa – I know him very well, i regard him as a son, I know what a good person he is, i am super happy. JA couldnt tell us because we would be so surprise, thank you for telling me this secretly.

They both leave. Appa walks off and GM watches him. the camera focuses on Appa.

Then we cut to JH and SH drinking. But SH is the one downing shot after shot and JH is the one filling up the cup for SH. They aren’t talking at all. JH sits very straight as well.

Appa drinks alone in an empty cafe. the mood is somber. the amera stays on him as he takes a sip and sighs.

Then we cut back to JH and SH. They are still not talking and they ae still drinking. JH looks like he is getting a bit tipsy, but he is trying to stay composed and sit straight. He has to hold himself up by the table at this point.

Appa keeps drinking at the cafe alone

The music plays as we watch both groups of men drinking.

JH ges a phone call. He turns it off. SH looks at it and calls the number. But then he gives the phone to JH.

JH – I am with my friend, I didn’t drink too much, Okay, I will sleep at the company…okay.

He hangs up and drinks some more.

SH – from now on, you should be honest, or I will kill you. When did you start?
JH – it doenst matter
Sh – just tell me, dont’ talk back
JH- i didnt’ do anything wrong, becaue she is your sister? it isbecause it is me, that is why you say no
SH – umma and appa, how do they treat you, to them…and what is she…sister…what about your sister….? Of course, we aren’t related lawfully, but why her? My sister? You have a lot of women.
JH – Because it is JH
SH – are you joking with me?
JH – do you think I am joking?
SH -whatever you do, you won’t work out
JH – I won’t give up, whatever you say, i won’t give her up, that is why i came here
SH – do you think your sister will understand this…you are crazy now…what abuot your sister
JH – You crazy guy, just tell me, only to me, whtever, I beg you, donot’ give your sister a hard time.

SH rolls his eyes and sighs and pours himself another drink.

They leave and SH looks like he is about to his JH. JH tells him that if he wants to hit him then they need to go somewhere else. He tells JH to not give his sister a hard time. JH smiles. SH tells him not to smile. But JH keeps smiling and calls SH’s name as SH walks away.

Cut to KS and JA getting their super drunk Appa from the cafe. He can’t even stand and just holds his head and looks o super drunk. He says nothing happened, he is just happy. My daughters, I am so happy, appa is so happy….

JA tells him that they should go home, Umma will yell at them again. You drank 3 bottles! Ah, so heavy.

Umm waits at home and runs off to her drinken husband who is drinking in the street and ways, My wiiiiiiiiffeeeeeeee! He throws his hands up and smiles and points at her and talks like a drinken guy. I think he salutes her? he says that he will be nice to youuuuuuuuuuu. Then he drunkenly is pulled home by JA.

COMPANY
The perverts are scared about this survery that the female employees are filling out. HG calls CG to the office and basically tells him that he goes overboard when drinking. It is all his fault, what is he going to do? Why did he do all those things on that trip! CG says that HG told him to do it, that is why he told JA to drink with them. But HG deny’s it.

YI meets with the CEO and talks about the mood of the women. She says they are embarrassed because this has never happened before. Some people actively write and other don’t. YI says that she actively doesn’t raise her voice about women’s rights, but he says he is most afraid of her opinion. She smiles. But the CEO gets a call so she leaves. Then we see that one of the perveerts was eveasdropping on their converstation. He is busted by the CEO.

At the company, one of the man employees asks about the female employess and he says that the female employees don’t even have eye contact witht he men employees.

Cut to CG asking JA if she would like to eat lunch/dinner with him. She calls JH and tells him about it. JH doesnt ‘want her to eat with that pervert. But she says hse will. He tells her not to go far. She doesnt’ have a cell phone. JA tells her that he told her he would buy her a cell phone. They get off the phone and JA gives the franchise owner back his cell phone.

DINNER
JA and CG have dinner. JA is all confused about the dinner, did the CEO send him? But CG says that isn’t it, she worked hard so he wants to give her dinner. Hea sks her if she wrote anything on that letter? She said she is not going to write anything….there is so much so she will just tell him in person. But then she notices JH sitting right behind CG. She excuses herself and tells him to come out. They go to the back and hug.

She says, you worry about me that much? He says it is because he missed her, it is too late, I will sit next to you. He says he doesnt’ like seeing them face to face. She says they willleave soon so endure. Listen to Noona while I tell you nicely.

Back to dinner. CG is nervous and pats his head. She thanks him for dinner. He says it wasnt’ much, next time it will be better. But JA says that this can be the last time. CG starts to say that he is sorry, he works, if he made her sad, then please understand him. She says it is embarrassing that he is telling her that. He mentions that she is like a stranger now, why did she cahnge so much? She says it is because she wants to help someone. She didn’t realize how important she was until now, but someone tries to protect me a lot and thinks about me more than himself so I try to protect that person so he won’t worry about me. I want to protect myself a little better.

JH smiles as he hears this in his spot.

AT HOME
JA sits with her appa, they have small talk about his phone but then he asks her if she has something to tell him. He is ready to hear it. She says that she isn’t ready, can he wait a little bit more? He says that it is fine, when you are ready then just tell me. She leaves. All the while appa pretended like he was not interested, but then he sighs as she leaves the room.

JA goes to her room and hits her bed. She basically has a little temper tantrum on her bed.

COMMERCIAL BREAK

#10
That night, we cut to JA meeting with GM. He sighs and gets his car. She asks him why he is going that way. He says that he is going to get his car. They both get in the car. He says, if you dont’ have to change your cell phone then you wouldn’t contact me? Is it because your young boyfriend is jealous? She tells him not to talk about him. He says, How great is he? Is he a cheabols son? But she just says that she is in a hurry, so lets go.

They drive off and we cut to JH riding his bicycle. But then we hear, Jun-hee ah. He stops and takes otu his phone.

Joon-hee, joon-hee it is me. I held your cell phone and I wanted to tell you something, thank you, for loving me a lot. I never knew that I would beloved like this before by someone. You don’t know how much I am thankful and am having a happy moment. I am also learning a lot. Lot is all giving for one person. So, when I love, like So Joon-hee, …Joon-hee I love you very much, for a long long time.

JH smiles so brightly as he listens to this and perhaps a tear falls? He lets out a huge sigh and laughs as he rides his bike again.

But then we see that GM is driving far away. JA asks where he is going. Where are you going? He starts to drive crazily around the streets of Seoul. JA has to hold onto the side door.

JH gets to his car and listens to the recording of JA again. He is so happy as he listens to it while driving.

But JA is telling GM to stop the car. Ar you crazy! Stop the car. She takes off her seat belt and tries to open the door. But a car is right there and honks. She closes it and puts her seat belt back on.

JH looks for JA at her coffee shop, but she isn’t there. he leaves and tries to call her, but she doesnt’ have a phone.

GM drives even farther and farther away. JA tells him not to do that. Don’t do that. What are you going to do. What do you want. He says that he is going to die. Together with her. He will just die. He keeps driving.

The image freezes with JA’s terrified face.

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

SH: Noona
SH: Hey
JH: Let’s do this later.
SH: Do what later?!
GM Mother: Gyu Min!
GM: Mom!
GM Mother: Gyu Min, what in the world happened?! Omo! Who did this?! Huh?! Who did this?!
GM Mother: You! Aren’t you Jin Ah?
GM Mother: Did the two of you fight?
JA: I’m sorry.
GM Mother: You, what in the world… How could you do this to a person? To a man?
SH: The victim is my sister.
Police: You can do your talking later. For now, who are the guardians? You’re the guardian, aren’t you?
GM Mother: Yes.
Police: And, which of you?
(SH sits down)
Police: Could you give me your identification cards, please?
GM: You acted so holier than thou, but then acted so shamelessly…

GM Mother: Get in.
GM: You. Let’s talk for a moment.
SH: They’ve both settled things, so what do you want? If you’re going to talk, then talk to me.
GM Mother: Are you Yoon Jin Ah?
SH: In that case, while you’re talking to my sister, it’s okay if I speak with ajumma’s son, right?
GM Mother: What? “Ajumma”?
SH: Do I have to call you “Madam”?
JA: Yoon Seung Ho.
JH: Please just leave.
GM Mother: And, who are you? Are you this person’s younger brother as well?
JH: I’m… I’m this friend’s…
JA: He’s my boyfriend.

Scene #2:

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

SH: What are you doing?
SH: What are you doing? Hurry up and come, so we can go in.
SH: Oh, really.
JA: I’m sorry, Seung Ho.
SH: Hey, hey! Yoon Jin Ah! Hey!

(JA runs to JH, and they just embrace. Then they go sit in his car.)

Scene #3:

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

JA Mother: Oh, when you went on that business trip before, why didn’t you tell me that Joon Hee gave you a ride?
JA Mother: Huh?
JA Mother: Oh, Seung Ho! Are you leaving? Oh, Seung Ho! Seung Ho!

JH: I’ll try meeting with Seung Ho.
JA: Then after that, I’ll meet with Kyung Sun. And, mom, you’ll meet her again? Oh, why is this so hard? Is Seo Joon Hee so great?
JH: Are you blaming it all on me now?
JH: It’s just a man and woman who met, and now are dating. I said that there is nothing that will be a problem.
JA: When you talk about it that way, it really does seem like it’s nothing major.
JH: It’s really like that.
JA: Then what is this that is already so hard? When it’s just started with the one, Yoon Seung Ho?
JH: Think about it comfortably, since I’ll be the one who meets with everyone.
JA: I’m not going to let you receive all the blows by yourself.
JH: Oh, that’s great. In that case, can you protect me in front of him?
JA: Oh, really.
JH: Don’t worry. I’ll do better.
JA: Just you dare not do well. I’ll hit you.

Scene #4:

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

JA: Even though the charges and the installment payments had continued to be paid from my account?
Rep: This has nothing to do with that.
JA: Then, are you saying that I absolutely can’t change this by myself?
Rep: According to the regulations, no, you can’t.

BR: Why aren’t you answering your phone?
JA: Oh, don’t even talk to me about phones.
BR: Even if you don’t want to hear anything, you have to hear this.
JA: Huh?

BR: Yoon Jin Ah, your ankle has totally been caught by me. (means JA is at her mercy)
JA: What do you mean my ankle? I think that my entire life is in your hands. Anyway, thank you.
BR: But you know, that I normally don’t have any interest in other people’s issues, don’t you? But no matter how much I think about the two of you, it doesn’t make sense. Can’t you just date Seo Joon Hee-sshi? To put it bluntly, well, he’s not your actual little brother nor is he a close bloodline, so what is the issue?
JA: Inescapable responsibility?
BR: I’m supposed to laugh now, right?
JA: Yes, it’s better than crying.
BR: Anyway, if he’s a man that you want to meet even having to take all of this into account, is he that great?
JA: Yes. Very.
BR: I wonder if you’re just joking around or not.
JA: Really. There is this thing… Whenever I see him, my heart starts racing. And, inside, there’s this full feeling, and there’s this big…
BR: Let’s see! Let’s see!
JA: Have you ever felt that, Manager Geum?
BR: Is there anything left inside there?!
BR: Oh. I didn’t expect to be Chun Hyang, but I never even dreamed that I would become Hyang Dan. (me: Chun Hyang is a famous love story where CH is the main and HD is her servant.)
JA: I really never even imagined that I would be talking with Geum Bo Ra like this.
BR: Since one really never knows in one’s life.
JA: In that spirit of things, please lend me your cellphone.
BR: Here! Really. Will this be long?
JA: Tambourine Yoon?
BR: I’m going to change it. I’m going to change it.
JA: Change it.
BR: I will change it. Seriously.
JA: This isn’t Manager Geum. Who do you think it is? It’s Jin Ah. (me: OMG, baby talk. BR’s face says it all. LOL) Oh, I’m sorry. Are you working?

Scene #5:

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

JH: After we eat, let’s go buy you a cellphone.
JA: In a few days. Since I’m working at the store, there’s really no need for one, and since I don’t make useless calls, it’s very comfortable.
JH: Then what about me?
JA: Hm?
JA: But we see each other almost every day. And we can email each other when we want to meet up.
JH: What if suddenly work comes up and we have to change plans? It’s too uncomfortable, so it won’t do.
JA: Okay. I’ll buy one.
JH: Let’s go together. I’ll buy you one.
JA: No, no. Don’t worry about it. I can buy one.
JA: Shall we have a glass of wine? Oh, you said you had to work all night, didn’t you?
JH: That doesn’t matter, but because I have to drive. After we finish eating, I’ll drive you home.
JA: No, I’ll take the subway.
JA: Since in front of the house, mom might be there, and we have to be careful. And, also, having you drop me off and then go back to the office alone concerns me as well. And, it’s not that late anyway, so it’s okay.
JH: There’s something that you’re not telling me, isn’t there?
JA: No! Why? What could I be hiding? Even if I were hiding something, wouldn’t you know about it?
JH: That’s true. I would know.

JH: You haven’t gotten on yet.
JA: Do you know how many years I’ve taken the subway? I could ride it even with my eyes closed.
JH: Take mine. I’ll use the office phone.
JA: Oh, really.
JH: Put my mind at ease, please.
JA: What if Kyung Sun calls?
JH: Just don’t answer it. Well, if it concerns you, then after we talk, you can turn it off.
JA: And if another woman calls?
JH: Do you think I’ll be caught out like that? I already told them all not to call me.
JA: is that so? I’ll have to erase all the women’s names from your address book.
JH: Wait a second. Give me my cellphone for just a second.
JA: I think that’s finished now.
JH: Just give it to me for a second.
JA: I’m curious to know how many will have to be removed.

(train comes, and JA gets on while JH watches)
JA: (mouths) Go in.

Scene #7:

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

JA: Because you’re dating me, you’ve been suffering a lot, haven’t you?
JH: I have been. Since you choose to do only the things that I don’t want you to do.
JA: What did I do so much…?
JH: Thinking of things that you shouldn’t. Worrying about things that haven’t happened yet. Doubting yourself.
JA: You’re saying that I only do such useless things?
JH: But why do I like you so much?
JA: The incomparable charms of Yoon Jin Ah?
JH: Hang up.
JA: Hello?
JA: What? He really hung up? Really? Oh. He hung up so fast.
(phone rings, it’s KS)

JH: Yes? Hello? Speak.
KS: How did you know it was me?
JH: Noona?
KS: I’ve totally caught you. Who was it that you had been bantering with?
JH: Oh, Seung Chul had been calling the office. I thought it was him again.
KS: You should be careful. Other than Kang Se Young, there’s another woman who seems to be eyeing you.
JH: That’s so unnecessary. Is there a woman in this building who doesn’t like me?
KS: Who else? Yoon Jin Ah.
JH: That’s right. She’s the only exception.
KS: But where is your handphone that you don’t answer it? I tried and tried, and finally called you at the office instead.
JH: I must have left it somewhere else. I think I left it in the conference room.
KS: Oh. I don’t even expect closeness, but at least let’s each check that the other is still living.
JH: I understand. Until I get home, please stay alive and well.
KS: I’ll try. (hangs up)
JH: Oh, that was startling.
JH: Yoon Jin Ah, she…
phone: The phone you are trying to reach has been turned off.
KS: At times like this, she sure listens well.

Scene #8:

JA Father: The person that you’ve been talking about until now, do you mean Joon Hee?
GM: Joon Hee or whoever, I don’t know. The guy I saw at your house, Seung Ho’s friend, he’s the one that Jin Ah has been seeing. And, even Jin Ah has said it herself, that he’s her boyfriend.

SH: Why are you here?
JH: Why ask when you know?
SH: Even crawling here on your knees wouldn’t have been enough, but what? “Why ask when you know?”
JH: Do you want to talk here?

JA Father: So? Why did you want to see me?
GM: Apologize to me. Treating me as the only one who was cheating, I came to get your apology for that.
JA Father: I don’t think I was wrong.
GM: Well, Yoon Jin Ah was seeing someone else as well.
JA Father: You said you did it first. Then there is no reason why Jin Ah couldn’t see someone else after that.
GM: Well. Well, that is true, but…
GM: She says she’s dating her little brother’s friend, and are you really okay with that?
JA Father: Actually, I prefer it. Since I’ve seen him since he was a child, he feels like a son to me. And, how sincere and kind he is, I know better than anyone. So, he’s dating our Jin Ah, could I like anyone better? Because he’s like a son to us, Jin Ah must not have been able to tell us for fear that we’ll be shocked. For finding me like this to tell me about it, thank you.

Scene #9:

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

SH: If you try to prevaricate and talk about it, you’ll be dead.
JH: If I had thought of doing that, would I have come?
SH: When did it start?
JH: Why is that important?
SH: Just answer the questions. What makes you think you have the right to quibble?
JH: What did I do wrong? Because she’s your older sister? And, it would have been fine if she was your younger sister? You just dislike it because it’s me. And, insisting that it can’t be. What’s your reason for that?
SH: Are you asking because you don’t know?
JH: I don’t know.
SH: Hey, you crazy bastard, how do you think mom and dad think of you?
JH: How do they think of me?
SH: Son. You bastard, to mom and dad, who is Yoon Jin Ah? Daughter. Then let me ask you the same, what about Kyung Sun noona? That you aren’t related by blood, that there aren’t any legal issues, none of that means anything to us. Why in the world is it Yoon Jin Ah? Are there really no other woman that you can date? There are always loads of women around you, so why did it have to be Yoon Jin Ah?
JH: Because she’s Yoon Jin Ah.
SH: Aish. Are you joking?
JH: Does this seem like joking?
SH: Fine. No matter what you do, see if the two of you can make it.
JH: Whatever you say, whatever you do, I won’t give up. I absolutely can’t give up Yoon Jin Ah. I came to tell you that.
SH:Hey. Do you think Kyung Sun noona will be understanding of this? Do you think she’ll accept this? JH: If not, that’s too bad.
SH: Wow, really. You’re completely insane. Huh? What are you going to do?
JH: Are you worrying about us?
SH: Foolish, crazy bastard.
JH: Whatever you want to spew, I’ll accept it all, but only do it to me.
JH: I’m begging you. Don’t make it hard on your sister.

Scene #10:

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

JA: Did you worry about me so much? You didn’t have to come.
JH: Would a person who thinks like that send me the address and phone number to this place?
JH: Of course, I came because I wanted to see you!
JA: Too late!
JH: I’m going to go in, and sit next to you.
JA: What?! Let’s just die together. Oh, really.
JH: I don’t even want to watch you sitting together, so how do I endure it?
JA: I’m going to get up soon. So, endure it. Just endure it. Okay?
JH: I’ll see.
JA: While I’m speaking to you pleasantly, listen to noona’s words, okay?
JH: Oh, really.

JA: I ate well today. Thank you.
Gong: Oh, this isn’t much. Next time, I’ll buy you something more expensive and delicious.
JA: No, that’s okay. It would be uncomfortable, and this is more than enough.
Gong: Manager Gong, since I’ve been working, I’ve had to look to appease this and that sides, and I can’t just consider a single side. So, perhaps… If there is anything about me that you haven’t really liked, please try to understand me. And, if there is any resentment that’s been building up inside you, then let it go.
JA: Because you’re suddenly being like this, it is a bit unsettling.
Gong: If we’re talking about doing something suddenly, then Manager Yoon is the one who did so. And it’s not just me who feels that way. It really is like looking at a different person. Hasn’t anyone around you said that to you?
JA: Well, I did hear something like that.
Gong: See? Since we’re talking about it, let me hear it. What is the reason that you’ve changed so much?
JA: Because I want to help a certain person. All this time, I lived without knowing what a precious person I was. But, a person who thinks about me as more precious than I did and works hard to try to protect me; watching him, I thought I should help him. So that person will worry less, so that he can feel safer, I thought that I have to take better care of myself.

Scene #11:

This scene was translated by Stroppyse on Soompi. Thank you so much!

JA: Joon Hee.
JA: Joon Hee. Joon Hee, it’s me. While I had your cellphone, I suddenly thought of something I wanted to say. Thank you. For cherishing me so much and for loving me. That I would receive love like this from anyone, I had no idea. You probably don’t know. What a grateful and happy time I’m having right now. I’m also learning a lot. That love is, without any grudges, without any reservations, pouring everything out for one person. So, when I love, love like Seo Joon Hee does. Joon Hee, I love you. Very much. For a very, very long time, I’ll love you.

Scene #12:

JA: Hey! What are you doing?! Are you crazy?! Hurry and stop the car! Stop the car now!
JA: Don’t be like this. Gyu Min, don’t be like this. Please. What are you trying to do? What is it that you want?
GM: I’m going to die. With you. We’re going to die together.
GM: Get out of the way. Get out of the way. Get out of the way.

      I think this is a tongue and cheek look at all the romantic comedies that think it is sexy for a man to buy the girl a phone. That also means the phone is in his name even if she takes over the payments.

      I think this is very well done on the writers part.

      It’s the curse of the family plan – you save money and it’s supposedly romantic, but if your boyfriend turns out to be a complete psycho, you lose access to everything that was under his name.

      I’ve actually been wondering about this since Gyu Min was revealed to be saving all of the old photos of Jin Ah, I just thought he might up it a level and stalk her through viewing her phone data and discover all the photos with JH and the texts between them and go completely mental. I’m kind of glad we didn’t have to spend that time with him and Jin Ah figured out the problem instead (even though her being in a car with a suicidal murderer is not an ideal alternate outcome).

    Urrrgghhh…why does JA’s brother have to behave like that?
    He should be happy that his best friend and his sister are together.
    Does he think his best friend is not good enough for his sister or does he think his sister is not good enough for his best friend?

    Whatever the reason for his behaviour, it makes no sense to me.

    Whatever the reason, he has absolutely no right to react in that way.

    What business is it of his who his sister dates?

    In all his reaction – over-the-top, overreaction, over-everything about what is absolutely none of his business. I am disappointed the PD chose to make this character behave this way.

        Whoops I thought you meant the ex-boyfriend. With the brother, I can definitely understand it because it means that his friend is having sex with his sister. I think it will take a moment for him to wrap his head around that.

      • Div
        April 20, 2018 / 10:46 am

        I know too many like this. It wasn’t even surprising. As the brother whose friend is a known player and SH would also considering his family reactions. Getting acceptance is going to be a messy journey. And it’ll be the women in noona’s life that’ll create the most drama. Can’t wait

          true i think the brother feels award, i mean if they are close close friend… you know to much about that friend and he might worry a bit about his sister, there is one line that he said ” take care of her” something like that , also i think there is a bit jealousy there either towards his sister or his JH. Those are natural feelings, of curse those are temporary feeling and it can dissolve with time.. so will see how the store goes.

        Yes too many Korean dramas have overly-dramatic and nosy family members like that but I thought with this PD, he would not take that route.

      • Kay
        April 20, 2018 / 11:13 am

        Hello @Div

        Yes I am Asian and yet I still do not like JA’s brother’s reaction because for goodness sake, she is almost 40!

        What does the brother think is wrong with his sister dating his best friend?

        Does it have to do with the fact that his sister may be intimate with his best friend? Is that what is freaking him out? That is so ludicrous!

        • Miranda
          April 21, 2018 / 8:58 am

          No, the brother’s reaction is a totally normal reaction even in the West. JH has probably told the brother WAY more about dating and mindset than you usually tell the brother of the woman you’re dating – he’s a player, and that’s known. So SH has this entire horrifying backlog of JH’s previous relationships, in much more detail than he wants applied to his sister. And then there are the other concerns: he knows his mother loves JH but would probably reject him as a match for JA, he knows his parents view JH and JA as almost-siblings, he knows JH’s noona is going to lose her mind, and he’s inevitably thinking about what will happen to his family if they break up: he loses JH and likely KS.

          It’s almost a third of his family, gone. We’ve already seen how frequently he relies on JH, this is almost like his sister stealing his friend. JH is a pretty stand-up guy, but it’s just got to be weird telling your friend things and knowing that he has a stronger loyalty to your sister. Brothers-in-law frequently become friends, but it’s less frequent that best friends become brothers-in-law. And then there’s the inevitable mind-paralyzing thought that JH is having sex with his sister.

          Frankly, SH has been remarkably accepting of this, he appears to have gotten over it in a matter of days.

            @Miranda

            I see all your points and I do not disagree that they are valid points.

            Having said that however, I still believe that with an acclaimed PD helming this drama, I thought a better character arc is called for. Please allow me to elaborate.

            Even though SH knows JH for so long because they are best friends, no one can know everything about anyone, not even best friends, not even family members. We may think we know a lot about certain people in our lives but no one can say we know everything about anyone. Thus, SH cannot judge JH based only on his popularity with girls as a basis for his concern that JH is dating his sister because he thinks JH is a player. So many men do things that society can label as the men being players but so many men are so much more than just players. Granted, there are many men who are players because they wish to do just that – play the game – with many women for whatever reason/s. They are the ones that I do not wish to know about or get to know or elaborate here. However, there are other many men who get to know many women not to become so-called ‘players’ but because they do not know what kind of woman they like or they do not know what kind of woman they wish to commit to a serious relationship with or they do not know what being in love and loving a woman is. I think JH falls into the last category. He found out what being in love and loving a woman is by being with JA.

            So if the PD can develop SH’s character arc by making SH reach that realisation through calm, mature, measured and non-dramatic heart-to-heart conversations with JH, perhaps the hysterical and downright murderous rage can be avoided. Through the in-depth discussions they can have because they are best friends, SH can become a character of depth of understanding of his best friend instead of one who is only emotionally-driven to distraction.

            As to your point, @Miranda, about SH’s Mother’s reaction, JH’s sister’s reaction or SH’s thoughts of losing a friend, once again I wish the PD could have chosen a more layered and atypical arc to all the characters.

            If SH’s and JA’s Mother’s reaction is to reject JH based on the fact that his parents’ marriage was a disaster and they have a less than spectacular financial background, then it is just one of so many typical tropes used in a gazillion dramas. Why choose it? Why not use another character arc that is more suited to current times like a Mother who does not meddle in her children’s love lives and let her children choose whoever they wish to be with even if they make a mistake because making mistakes is part of being human? A Mother who is there for her children when they need a listening ear, or a pat on the back or a shoulder to cry on, but not a Mother who dictates to her children how they should live their lives or who they should choose to marry.

            As for SH’s fear of losing a friend if the relationship between JH and JA does not work out, then all I can say is this – as in many things in life, a relationship is a gamble. We win some, we lose some. But even if the relationship does not work out, losing a friend is not the end of the world. Many friends drift apart or lose touch because of benign reasons such as family commitments and busy individual lives. So what if SH and JH drift apart if JH and JA do not work out? SH can always make new friends.

            Also, to fear something that has not even happen is like putting the cart before the horse. JA and JH have just started dating. Being so negative about the relationship says more about SH than about JA and JH. The PD can choose to make SH a character that accepts that his best friend loves his sister and works hard to help his best friend and sister make the relationship work by being the support and buffer whichever he needs to be and whenever the need arises. In that way, it is a win-win-win situation. JA and JH can be together. SH does not lose a friend and his Mother does not lose a daughter.

            And as for the mind-paralysing thought of his best friend sleeping with his sister, well, all I can say is, wake up and smell the coffee (I apologise for using this term if it is incorrect because I just find it cute…hehehe). If the thought of his best friend sleeping with his sister can cause mind-paralysis, then I think SH needs to look at himself in the mirror and ask the question – so what? JH is a healthy and drop-dead gorgeous man with raging hormones and his sister is also a healthy and drop-dead gorgeous woman with raging hormones and if they are in love, why should sleeping together be such a shock? Does SH not have normal raging hormones of a man of his age? Or does SH think that his sister can only sleep with a stranger, not his best friend, to not feel mind-paralysis? This line of argument does not, in my opinion, hold water. JA may be SH’s sister and JH may be SH’s best friend but they are their own people and their bodies are their own. SH does not have the right over what his sister does with her body or what JH does with his own. Just like JA does not have the right over what SH does with his body.

            Once again, the PD could have chosen to portray SH as a character with depth and breadth of maturity and understanding, not just another run-of-the-mill, typical, a dime-a-dozen character saturating a gazillion dramas out there – hysterical, emotional, immature, prone-to-dramatics, and so on and so forth, you get my drift.

            Phew! I apologise for the super-long comment but I thought I needed to make a point. Or points. Hehehe.

            In conclusion, I wish the PD and writer of this drama have chosen a more layered and enlightening approach in portraying the different characters. I am so tired of the meddling, status-conscious and money-minded Mother (JA’s and SH’s mother), the selfish and immature siblings (SH and JH’s sister, KS) the mean, single-minded female singles after rich men (some of JA’s colleagues), perverted jerks (JA’s ex and her male colleagues).

            This is the drama that Son Ye Jin chose to star in after a 5-year hiatus but apart from the mind-blowing chemistry between her and Jung Hae In and their love story arc, the rest of the drama is a disappointment to me. There are 8 more episodes to go. I wonder how they will turn out. I am very interested in the drama enough to keep watching it. I just hope I will not regret doing it if the rest of the episodes are a let-down.

      It’s not so much the fact that his friend is dating his sister. It is more because SH feels like his parents raised JH like a brother almost like they are all related. The sudden shift in this dynamic is disarming to him and feels wrong, which is why he is initially upset and demands some sort of explanation.

      • Kay
        April 20, 2018 / 12:13 pm

        @CNH
        I can see the logic of your perspective and I agree that the shift in dynamic may be disarming but still his reaction is way over-the-top.

        He could have seen from the perspective of his best friend – growing up together but they are not biologically-related and so the most he should have reacted was surprised, not the hysterical and downright murderous way he reacted!

        I mean, with a sister that beautiful and a best friend that gorgeous??!!
        Come on! Joon Hee must be made of stone NOT to be enamoured of such beauty!

        So surprised but pleasantly surprised and happy because his best friend, the friend he trusts and grew up with, loves his sister. What better match than that?
        That would have been the perfect reaction.

        Especially considering the jerk JA’s ex-boyfriend turned out to be!

      At the start of the drama JH makes it clear that he will probably have to do another rotation in the US, and I’m wondering if that will be the third choice: stay together but leave Korean society for a while.

    JoonHee reminds me of someone. Very protective. My ex boyfriend turned husband. lol. We were dating secretly coz we know my parents would disagree. We spent time together forgetting about the world haha. We were having passionate romance. Just like how JoonHee and JinAh. He always fetching me from work and send me home every single day. Until, people around us slowly learnt about our relationship. That I had to leave my family for him. We were so madly in love back then. lol.
