Shorthand Character Chart: The World of the Married Character Chart

How we do this: This live recap will be in two parts and we segment each post around every 10 minutes. Sometimes sooner, sometimes later depending on the scene. There will be typos which we have fantasies of fixing once the episode finishes airing. Also, if there is a preview then we will try and translate it. Look for that at the bottom or on a separate post!





Da-kyung sit at her boudoir in their fancy closet and getting ready. Her parents are talking in their room about Tae-oh’s son going to a shrink and how the mother does not know if that will work.

BK says that Da-kyung is trying, we should expect good results. The mom is a bit sarcastic at her boudoir area and says that she does not know why DK was so stubborn with that son. But now Sun-woo just left by herself so maybe now DK was right. I was so angry that Da-kyung was struggling to embrace Tae-oh’s son. But I don’t know what is good or bad.

BK looks concerned but says that it is getting late so let’s go.

Da-kyung is also ready to go. She walks to her dinner area and makes sure everything is ready. Tae-oh gets home. Da-kyung pleasantly says that she thought he would be late. 

Tae-oh asks, is there still time? I can take a shower. He goes upstairs. DK tells him that she prepared his clothing to change into. He doesn’t not turn around and goes straight to the room.

She goes to Joon-yong’s room to make sure he is ready. She fixes his collar and tells him that these people are nice. You should also be nice in front of adults. We are a real family, do you understand what I am talking about? She holds his arms. He nods.

Meanwhile Tae-oh cries in the shower. Then he sadly gets ready in his closet.


Everyone is here eating pleasantly BK tells them all that kids fight and become friends again, that is how it is. You can become better friends. Hyo-jung watches Da-kyung give Joon-young more food. She does not look happy about this situation. BK says they should toast to friendship.

So everyone toasts. They start to talk about how nice the wine is and all that. But there is an undercurrent of uneasiness.

Later on after the kids leave the table the city senator tells BK hat he is happy to have a good friend and good son and good supporter in Kosun. BK tells him that he has decided to support him so please get reelected. Everyone is happy and toasts again.

They start to idly chat about Tae-oh and his next movie. Then the daughter starts to cry. Da-kyung thinks that the ajumma should be taking care of her so she excuse herself to go upstairs.

She walks up the hallway to her daughters room but then stops when she hears her in Joon-young’s room. Joon-yong isn’t doing anything to her but DK looks at him like he is the devil and asks what he did to her.

Joon-young says that he didn’t do anything to her. She accuses him of hitting her. Everyone downstairs hears this. She yells that he needs to act right at least today! He says that he did not do anything wrong, she was just playing and fell, what can I do, why are you doing this to me?

Hae-Kang is also upstairs and hears all of this. The nurse comes back in and takes Jenny away. DK keeps yelling at Joon-young. Tae-oh comes in and says that they should stop.

She yells, how much should I tolerate you! Joon-young yells, I didn’t ask you to take care of me! Tae-oh slaps him really hard. It is a wind up and slap.

But then everyone realizes that was a big mistake. In his mind he remembers what Sun-woo said about taking care of Joon-young, that is all that she wants.

TO – You jashik, a lot of people are suffering because of you! How much of a difficult time should we have!

he storms out and goes to his closet. BK and the wife come in in a hurry. Tao-oh tells them to enjoy their dinner and leaves. 

The senators family all stand together downstairs and don’t know what to do.

Tae-oh walks past all of them and leaves.




Sun-woo is sleeping in the hospital with an IV in her arm. She wakes up hearing Joon-young calling her name, Umma, umma…she hops up and charges her phone.

Joon-young sits in his room at his desk quietly fuming. His phone starts to buzz. He looks at it and starts to cry.

But it appears that he answered? She starts to talk into the phone. She asks if he is listening to her? He starts to cry into the phone. She asks what happened? He sobs and asks if she can pick him up, I’m sorry, can you pick me up.

She leaves right away to get him. Yoon-ki and the sunbae are all like, um, what the heck? But they can’t get to her in time, she drives off.


Da-kyung sits for a lecture from her mother about how she told her so, you should not accept another persons kid. Her father quietly and understandingly asks what makes her this insecure. She can’t answer.

Sun-woo gets to the mansion. She stops and takes a good look at it and then gets out of her car. The maid goes to the door and sees who it is. She tells Hyo-jung. Hyo-jung thinks this woman is crazy, how dare she come here?

Da-kyung hear this and goes to the door. Hyo-jung tells her not to let her in, just kick her out.

Sun-woo says she is there to pick up Joon-young. Da-kyung asks why? Tae-oh did not tell me anything.

Sunwoo takes out her phone and tells Joon-yuong to come out.

Joon-young runs down the stairs to his mother. Da-kyung tells him to stop, go to your room. GO TO YOUR ROOM NOW!

He is all like, this woman is psycho. He takes off running to his mother. She tries to get him. BK stops her and says to let him go! DK says she has to get him and then completely crumbles and tells her father that she tried to hard! I can’t let her screw this all up!

Joon-young runs out to see his mother, he doesn’t even wear his shoes. He gives her a big hug and she hugs him as well. They both apologize and head to the car.

Da-kyung runs outside and says, I TOLD YOU TO STOP! Sun-woo tells Joon-young to go to the car. He runs to the car.

SW – What is the problem? It should be better for you for Joon-young to stay with me. 

DK – Does Tae-oh know about this?

SW – I already talked to Tae-oh, whenever Joon-young wants, he can come.

DK – Your obsession, don’t you know that is screwing him up? How much are you going to make him confused? He was getting used to the place! It is better for him to grow up in a normal family than to live with an obsessed and unstable mother. Can you think more rationally? *she looks crazy*

SW – Why are you so obsessed with Joon-young?

DK – this is the best for Joon-young. I am getting tired of watchinG the two of you fighting over your kid. How do you think Joon-young will be? And you, do you think you can raise Joon-young normally? I even stopped the school violence committee!

SW – Lets be honest, this is not for Joon-young, you are just tryin to protect your family and your marriage because it seems like Lee Tae-oh is not stable. So you were nervous about it. I understand that you want to protect it with whatever it takes. i was the same. But do you know what, that desperation and wanting, is meaningless. Marriage can be shaken and broken for seemingly not important things.

DK – My marriage is different. *psycho look*

SW – You should know it best, you did the same.

DK – What are you talking about?

SW – Lee Tae-oh, slept with me.

Thunder strikes, Da-kyung looks at Sun-woo in stunned shock.



Oh my gosh, YES! We have brought things back around in this one episode! Sun-woo has her son back and it looks like her sanity back as well. Joon-young is happily going to his mom who he knows will do anything for him. And they are probably both on the same page about moving away from this crazy city.

I love how the stakes are kept tight around this group of people. The largest it got was with the cops coming in during the train situation, but then they brought it back around to the family level and the power structures within their small community. Oh, I love it so much.

What I love most is that Sun-woo appears to be back and in her right mind. It was like she could handle it all so long as her son loved her, but when she thought she lost that she was like well F it all then. So I’m happy they can be a united front to move to their happy place somewhere else. Maybe with Yoon-ki, maybe not, but at least they will be together.


English Translation

JY – Can we go somewhere no one knows about?

YR – Tae-oh won’t be able to forget Ji Sun-woo too easily.

DK – Why are you saying that?

SW – Think about it carefully, this might be the last chance for you to get out of this situation.

TO – You said it never happened, do you still have feelings for me?

SW – Before blaming other people, just think about what you did.

BK – The only thing I wanted from a loser like you was to make my daughter happy.

TO – Hey we planned to go on vacation together, you shuoldn’t do this all of a sudden.

DK – She is not the one having an illusion, I was the one. 

DK – Now I know everything.

    Thank you for your hard work. DAEBAK. I cried so much during the beach scene. I felt all emotions delivered by Kim Hee Ae. What a multiple skilled actress. Daesang, here we come ! You’re right, Sun Woo seems to be sane again and is on revenge mode in order to protect her son. Hopefully, SW and JY will leave Gosan with or without YK. TO bye bye…

    Yessss~ Finally, DK’s crazy is showing.. I was getting worried that the past couple of episodes have mellowed out and lightened the psycho and frustration. I’m so glad we’re back to it!

    And I sincerely do not trust DK.. Not. One. Bit. She was clearly pretending to be all sweet and nice but her true colours really showed when she side eye smirked at SW at the hospital and now she immediately suspected JY of hitting Jenny. Cmon, you said you tried hard, why immediately arrive at that if she didn’t already think he was a bad apple.

    Thank so much for this! I keep having to wait for the subs. I am dying for the last 2 episodes now! Can’t wait to read them next week. Thanks again, great job as always. Stay in and stay safe~ ^^

      me too, after the 1st 2 episodes I just stopped watching. I felt I couldn’t handle it. I went back watching after episode 6, I guess and I couldn’t stop anymore. am happy after episode 14, I guess Sun Woo will be relaxed and happy to have her son back. That is all that matters. Whatever the ending is, it will just be for the good of the mother and son. Great story. Great actress. Am speechless.

    Same here.
    I stopped watching because I couldn’t handle
    the roller coaster emotions that were making me more depressed than I should be caused by the almost 2 months of lockdown, which also made me lose my job.
    Yet, in search of a triumphant ending to inspire myself, I find myself here at Dramamilk reading the recaps. Sending love & appreciation from Malaysia, for your hard work. And also to the rest of the readers in these very tough times, take care & stay well.

    Thank you so much for the hard work! Have been following your detailed and super quick recaps as I always can’t wait and watch the unsubbed episodes while only understanding 80% of the dialogue haha. Really love the pace of this show, the stellar acting even from young ones like Joonyoung, the emotions and the plot twists.. can’t wait for the final two eps! I’m gonna miss this show so much!!

    I teared up a little bit when Joon Young and Sun Woo hugged each other. Seriously Sun Woo has been through soooo much that she deserves to have her son returned to her. I hope things will turn out well for Joon Young as well. Looking forward to the last two episodes!
