The Great Seducer Live Recap Episodes 23 and 24

Live Recap for the Korean Drama The Great Seducer / Tempted, episode 23 and 24

MBC

I am literally watching this show to see what happens because there is no possible way I can guess my way through it. The preview is my only hint, which spells misfortune for everyone and most pressingly for Suk-woo who has an accident while driving due to his failing eyesight. My question is, what was he doing driving with failing eyesight?

OPENING
SHWhat is this? Eun tae-hee will complain that it is noisy while sleeping
TH – Are you afraid of the thunder?
SH – No
TH – you can pick me up from school with an umbrella
SH – What do you want to do right now?
TH – Right now?
SH – Do you want to see me and talk?

TH goes to SH’s room with both of them laughing as she carried her pillow to his place. SZ sees this from the elevator. She is destroyed at the sight. She goes back down to SJ who is holding an umbrella, but she is too stunned to talk to him and just looks off at nothing.

Meanwhile SZ and TH are happily talking in bed together. They joke about their dreams being realized as the rain falls outside. SH watches TH sleeping, but she isn’t sleeping and asks him why he isn’t sleep. He says that he wants to tell her a lot, she tells him it is that he thinks a lot and to not worry about the future. When he goes out to run…don’t worry about things in advance. You look like you worry about unneccessary things. They keep talking and she jokes that she is his noona since she is 3 months older. They talk about him meeting the woman his appa is seeing and how they should just sleep.

She falls asleep and he tucks her in. then he goes to his desk and checks his drawings. He flips to an empty page

Note: I would like to confess a long a difficult confession to you.

SZ AND SJ IN A CAR
SZ tells SJ that she will not block their wedding anymore, she will just let her mother do what she wants to do. SJ wants to drive, but SZ says she will. But she looks like she is not able to drive as she reves the engine but the car goes nowhere.

SH’S APARTMENT
TH lets herself into SH’s apartment and rolls him out of bed. She tells him that they should work out as she hits him on the back. they go out running, but she rides a bycicle while he runs next to her. It’s so unfair! But she keeps riding it and he keeps running.

Then he drops her off at school and opens her door for her. TH says it is nice that he drops her off at school. Can he walks her to her class? He wants to see her classmates. While walking, SH sees the flower petals falling and tries to catch one, but then he hides what he is doing when TH turns around.

They keep walking, but TH wants to stop for a moment as she looks at a foreign exchange program on the bulletin board. SH tells her she would have to go outside the country, don’t leave. A guy comes up to TH and tells her that is a competition, let’s do it together. But TH says that she told him that she didnt’ want to do it. I told you not to put your hand on my shoulder. Don’t talk about it anymore.

SH watches all this and smiles. TH says that she is only kind to him.

They walk and run into SZ. TH removes her hand from SH’s, but SH grabs her hand again and tells her not to retract it. SZ walks by without saying anything. TH wants to know why he didn’t say hi. SH says that they will see each other soon, his halmoni called for all of them to meet.

Before the meeting, SW texts YW, he wants to meet with her. She says fine, one last time.

At the meeting, everyone sits and eats. Halmoni is very pleased to see SH and says that she picked this place for him. Did he eat miyukguk for his birthday? I told you to come to halmoni’s house. They start to talk a lot about eating together with family and how it is important. MR mentions that her and the VP had dinner together. Then she mentions that SZ and SH are close. Grandmother wants to talk to SZ though. She tells her that she should study abroad. The conversation grows awkward and Halmoni tells the kids to leave. SZ puts her phone on record and leaves it on her seat.

SH and SZ go somewhere and talk about how this situation is bad. Halmoni doesn’t like MR and SH is the same, but she is always on his side. SH tells her that they shouldn’t fight.

TH is interested in the exchange program and wants to research it. She asks the exchange program about it. Then she texts SH

TH : tell me your SAT and grades
SH : I didn’t take the SAT, don’t be surprised…
TH : No, I should give you private tutoring also

HALMONI AND MR
Halmoni wants MR to take care of SZ’s manners. She wants to give her some advice, they cannot accept people with rumors, I know what you told my daughter in law when she died, I know that you said that because of your greed, maybe you didnt’ intend it, but you need to watch your mouth. Halmoni leaves.

SZ and SH come back in. MR tells SZ that she will leave. SZ is pretty concerned about her mother and wants to know what SH’s Halmoni could have said to her. Your father is so great to let her take care of everything. SZ implies that SW and YW dating with affect TH and SH dating. But SH doesn’t understand why.

SW AND YW
SW drives up to YW’s place, but his eyes are affecting him. he gets there fine though. Inside, YW is standoffish and tells him that his son came. He didn’t do anything wrong, but I was so embarrassed and regretted everything. Why did you buy my work? Because you pitied me? Where you happy? Did you feel good helping me? We hurt our kids enough, I heard your wife died trying to see me. So how can you see me?

SW says that he just wanted to see her one last time and save it in his eyes. YW says they should be remembered as sinners, that is their punishment. SW slowly walks out and shuffles to the car.

He drives away but his eyes are affecting him. Then we hear a loud noise. The car crashed into a post and SW is unconcious. Cut to the hospital. YW has to call the guardian of SW. She looks at her phone.

He tells her that he isn’t hurting more than his mother. She apologizes again and says that maybe he visited her because of his disease. She diesnt’ know how much he is hurting, but maybe both of them are getting punished. Her daughter got her punishment; when her mother went there to see her, her mother had a car accident, it was a hit and run so we don’t know who hit her.

TH doesnt’ know what seh is taking about. She will know more in the future. SZ says she is so confident to think that they will be together in the future.

TH sighs and says that she knows she likes SH, she thinks she hates TH, but she loves SH. SH told her that her and SJ were really important to him and he can’t even explain how important you are to him. I was envious of you because of that. When he left me to hang out with y’all, I was sad and envious. But he told me that I was important to him, so I believed him and felt good. I just accepted his love and I also love him in my own way.

SZ asks her if she thinks her love is the most important thing in the world?

TH says that she is just different with SH, they share a lot of pain and everything. She doesnt’ want to steal SH from her, she just wants to build her life with him. She doesnt’ have to accept SZ’s feelings, they are her feelings, so don’t tell me what you feel.

    LOL. I too was shocked that he was driving when going blind. What the hell is he thinking??

    So they broke up again is it. *rolling eyes* Yet to catch up.

    Looks like the adults haven’t resolved all their issues yet, so not fair to expect these teenagers to make any sense.
