Today we should find out how this huge court case is going to end. I have to admit, the court cases are my least favorite part of this show. I love all of JinSin/YoonSeo’s moments and especially love her anger outbursts. I also love Moonhee and her bleeding heart. I hope she ends up with the divorce lawyer!

Jinsim tells Jungrok that she has to tell him something, but she is not going to say it now. However, the emotion she felt right now, she will tell him some time in the future. She turns and walks away. He wonders, what is she talking about? Does she like samgyupsal?
He calls her name.
JR – Oh Jinsim, do you like….
YS – Well! I like! I think so….but if you ask me something like that suddenly…..how did you know I like?
JR – Usually people like it
They go through this back and forth for a moment with her thinking she has to say that she likes him but him thinking that he wants to ask her if she likes samgyupsal. Finally, she figures it out and tries to save herself by pointing in all sorts of directions for the nearest samgyupsal restaurant. She smiles and giggles and says that she likes samgyupsal.
So they agree to go to the nearest one together and start walking off.
Jinsim is a bit upset again that he is so clueless about things. He tells her that she must really like samgyupsal, she says Yes, I Really Like It A Lot! He tells her that he developed his senses in reading people as a lawyer.
They start to talk about dating experience. He asks her if she has good dating experience. She says yes! I was in the dating coffee shop variety show (she was this in real life). She says that she was good at discussing dating problems, my nickname was….
JR – Natural born soloist (never dated)
She asks, huh? He finds something on his phone and shows it to her. It is a news article that talks about love councelor Oh Yoonseo that has never dated anyone before. It is a big issue, the PD says that it should be difficult and all new to her since she never experienced it so she reads the script all night and tries to give good tips to the viewers, so lets appreciate her efforts.
Jinsim tells him to stop reading it! So he stops. But he calls her a natural born soloist and tells her to eat some more.
Cut to them driving to her place. He tells her that they need to plan. Jinsim thinks it is because they need to plan their counterattack. But she is confident in his abilities, he is the best lawyer she knows. He asks how many lawyers she knows. She is all like, nevermind that, you are the best. Fighting!

At work the next day, the CEO meets with Jungrok to talk about the last trial on this case that had the jurist. People thought that the mood flipped when they found out that she would recieve 4-5 million dollars. If we get a no guilty plea then we will be criticized. People on the internet and peoples rights groups are all on her side, you know that? If we lose this case then no one will give us a job, what should we do? I don’t want to give you pressure though, don’t be pressured.
Jungrok starts to leave, but the CEO is so nervous and asks what they can do? We only have 4 lawyers here including me. I borrowed so much money from the bank! I had a big dream for this firm! If we fail this then we will owe a lot of money!
Jungrok tells him not to worry, someone told me that I will win and I also agree with that person, so just wait for me. He leaves. The Yeon wonders, who told him that? Did he go to a fortune teller? Hopefully it was a good shaman.
Later on, Jungrok and Jinsim look for cases that can help them while in his office. he says it is because there are no cases like this one that proved self defense (or something similiar). he tells her that she can go home now since it is late. He will stay there.
Jinsim gets a call from her manager. She calls him Oppa and says that she told him that she will go home by herself today, you don’t need to come oppa and don’t worry oppa. Okay I can leave now oppa. This gets Jungroks attention. Jinsim excuses herself to leave and heads out. But then Jungrok meets her at the elevator and tells her that they should go home together.
She asks if he still had all those things to do, he says that he can do them tomorrow. he wants to keep the work hours. But then they hear a big BAM and the elevator shakes. Jinsim asks what they should do! Jungrok presses the emergency button and tells them that the elevator stoped. Jinsim is so worried.
Her manager calls her and asks why it is taking so long so she tells him that the elevator stopped oppa! Dont’ worry oppa! If something happens then I will call you oppa. Jungrok looks like he is steaming in quiet jealously. Jinsim hangs up and asks Jungrok what they should do. He lists how many injuries were reported last year related to elevators.
JS – Why are you telling me that scary thing!
Then the lights turn off and Jinsim freaks out even more. Jungrok tries to hold her by the arms in a reassuring way and asks if she is okay? They share a moment as they stand like that, then the elevator doors open.
They leave and the manager rushes in to see why she was working so late and if she is okay. he then tells Jungrok that he is working his Jungrok too hard. He says “my” Jinsim. Jungrok is all like “my” JUnSim?
Jinsim has to hurry her manager off by the arm and starts to hit him at the car. Why didn’t you wait in the car! He says that he worried about her being trapped in the elevator. She says that she was not alone, she was with the lawyer. But the manager says that is why he worried about her, just in case he did something dirty! Every Korean man should be attracted to you! He is a man!
JS – Well, yes that is true, but nothing happened
The manager starts to ask her if she really is going to continue being a secretary? It has been so long already. Did you really decide this? You have a passion for real acting! I will help you! No more bad acting okay! Fighting!

Meanwhile, Jungrok thinks about the Jinsim calling her manager, oppa. He broods about it.
JinSim goes home and starts to dream about the elevator stopping and how her heart was fluttering. She giggles to herself on her bed.
The next day she sits at her desk and thinks that she is a super sexy workaholic. Then Jungrok comes in so she asks him if he would like a coffee. But Jungrok says no, your boyfriend said I shouldn’t work you too hard.
Jinsim is all like, Noooo, he is just a cousin like oppa that takes care of me when I drink and thinks. So don’t misunderstand that. Do you really not want a coffee? Jungrok lightens up and says that he wants just one coffee.
Meanwhile, CEO Yeon talks to Eunji in the break room about some coffee beans she brought from home. She likes it since they only have the mixeed coffees there. He tells her that she is better than him, lets drink this and have a one day dream (play on words with coffee beans and big). Jinsim comes in so they both great her and asks about working late yesterday, did anything happen?
SHe is all like, huh? He brings up that the elevator broke. Theguards told me that people were trapped, a man and a woman were in there and were about to kiss! Jinsim is all like, what! Maybe they did not try to kiss. Eunji asks who they were? Yeon says he also wonders. The guard ajusshi said that man was tall and the woman was pretty like an entertainer!
Jinsims world is crashing in on her. She is about to walk away but then Eunji calls her name. JinSim quickly tells them, it wasn’t me and the lawyer! It wasn’t us! We weren’t the ones kissing in the elevator! CEO Yeon is all like, of course not. We all know that. Eunji says that she just called her to remind her to take the coffee.
Jinsim gets it and leaves. Then Eunji and Yeon start to talk about how any two people trapped in an elevator would develop feelings for each other. Cut to Moonhee and Yoonhyuk getting trapped in th elevator, lol!
They both freak out as if their world is ending. But then they realize who they are in the elvator with. Choi tells Moonhee not to fall in love with him. He makes a funny face so she won’t. She is all like, THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Then the elevator shakes again so he falls on her. She punches him away and he falls to the floor on the other side. She looks pretty remorseful about it because he is holding his cheek in shock and looking at her.

Elsewhere, Sewan works in his office and starts to talk to his colleague about the trial that has a jury (juries are not common in Korea). She says that she heard Yeorum and the defense lawyer are friends, but she is going so far. Is she really cold blooded like that? There is a rumor that she has an under the table deal that she can go anywhere she wants if she does well on this case. I knew she had a big passion but I did not know that she would go this far.
Sewan tells her to just stop, I don’t want to hear about it anymore. She asks why, you are done. He angrily asks, why are you deciding if we are done or not!
he leaves and goes to get a coffee at a nearby cafe. He sees Yeorum there so he buys her something and tells her that he thought she needed something sweet. She says that she is busy so he agrees that she has to say something like that. She starts looking over her report again. He tells her not to look at something like that in a place like this. She is not interested in anything he says. She gets up and leaves.
She goes back to her office and works. Her secretary gives her some more information and tells her that she thinks everything is going in their favor. The lawyer is not doing anything so maybe they do not have any answers, it might be difficult to get self defense. Though Yeorum thinks they should not be too relaxed about it.
In the law office, Jungrok tells Jinsim that he will be back. Jinsim asks where he is going? To meet your client? he is going to Im Yooni’s house because, from the report, he can’t understand something and needs to see it in person. Finding his own evidence is a lawyers job. There is a saying, If there is no evidence in the report then the scene has the answer.
Jinsim asks if she can go, she thinks she might see something that he wont see. She also shows that she studied a lot and wants to help him anyway, so can I go also?
Cut to them both arriving at the house. The crime scene tape is still up. Jungrok asks Jinsim if she really is okay? Jinsim says she is okay, she played a detective before so she is used to it. Jungrok tells her that dramas and real life are very different so you should stay close to me.
They go inside, he tells her to watch were she steps. There is blood splattered all around. Jungrok checks the images on the report to the real images. Jinsim asks about it. He says that these are the blood spreading marks, when you stab someone and remove it then blood will spray everywhere. You can analyze the blood marks and see the position of the victim and aggressor. Kim Hyuntae was stabbed while standing.
Jinsim asks what that means. He says that if it was an accidental stabbing, then the aggressor would be lower but Kim Youngtae was stabbed standing. the prosecutors think this was a planned murder, she intended to do it.
Suddenly, someone runs up and hits Jungrok in the back of his head! Jungrok falls to the ground and Jinsim screams. The man runs away. Jungrok tells Jinsim that he is okay and then hurries off for the person that tdid that. He catches him and asks, who are you!
Soon after, we see the police hancuffing this man and putting him in the car. Jinsim runs up to see how he is. She is so concerned about his wound, especially since he is still bleeding on the back of his head. He pulls her aside from the onlookers and says that he is okay. He says that he has to write up the report on what happened.
She frets and tells him that is not in a hurry! Then she tries to clean off the blood between sobs. He tells her that she should be very scared. She says that she is okay, you should go to the hsopital after your report first!
Jungrok calls a taxi to talke Jinsim home. He watches the taxi leave for a moment and then heads off.

Yeorum gets a call about the intruder.
Jungrok goes to the police station to give his report. The police ask if he is okay with his injury? Then they tell him that this man is a neighborhood guy and thought that Jungrok was a robber. He is part of the volunteer police. His mother owns a butcher shop. This man also looks like he might be mentally handicapped. Jungrok goes to talk to this man.
The man is fine talking to him though he talks in his own unique way. Jungrok wants to ask if he thought I was a robber and if he went there before. The man says that noona told him that he should not tell anyone. Jungrok wants to ask about this, but then Yeorum comes in. She asks if he is okay, he says he is. Then Yeorum asks if this man is the one that was at the scene?
They both leave. Yeorum asks if he is really going to let him go like this? Jungrok says it was just a misunderstanding. The police thank him for his understanding and the man leaves as well bowing his thanks and walking away.
yeorum gets in her car and calls someone in order to search about Park Soomyoung.
Jungrok wants a background check on Park Soomyoung as well.
They he runs into Jinsim. He is suprirsed to see her and asks why she did not go home. She says that she was so worried about him so she did not go home and turned the taxi around. She thinks they should go to the hospital, the doctor can decide if you re okay or not. Lets go. Now, now!
They go to the hospital. The doctor tells him that he does not need to worry, it is just a little concussion. Jinsim tells Jungrok that she is relieved at the news.
He drives her home. She tells him that he didn’t have to drive her home since he was not feeling well. He tells her he is okay again and reminds her that she went to the hospital with him. Jinsim says that it was not about him, she went there because of herself. It bugged her that she left early. He says that it bothered him that he sent her off alone. That is why I wanted to bring you here, so don’t worry. Today was surprising, so dont’ worry about me, just rest.
She tells him to rest as well, he should be surprised too. So don’t worry about work anymore. Promise me. He says he will and they pinky promise. She tells him that he promised her so he has to keep it.
She hops out of the car and heads in. He waits for her to enter her gate then looks at his pinky finger and smiles. She also smiles as she walks away.

Jungrok gets home to Sewan cleaning. Sewan does not want Jungrok and Yeorum to be against each other. Then he sees that jungrok is injured and wonders who did it. Jungrok says it is nothing and goes to his office to think. He remembers back to talking with the man about how noona told him not to tell anyone.
Jungrok tells CEO Yeon about it. Jinsim is in the room, too. They think that this man could be a possible witness. Jungrok asked Dooseob to background check him. Yeon tells Jungrok to work hard, but not hard enough to get injured. Jinsim is all like, yes, that is what I am talking about! They start to talk about how Jungrok got hit. he says he is a good fighter and can take a lot, she tells him that he wasn’t hit properly and still went down right away.
CEO Yeon starts to talk about dealing with drug dealers in a case and getting attacked by gangsters. In that case, two gangsters sued each other and blamed each other. Because of my righteousness and good ability, we won. The other gangsters had 14 men with a grudge. 17 of them attacked me! I won with only my fist! Do you know the secret? My balls! I was not scared in any situation. Kwon is smart, but he doesn’t have balls. Kwon basically tells him to shut up.
Meanwhile, Dooseob is scouting the man that might be the witness. He sees him leaving a store and talking with a man. Dooseob goes up to the man and asks him if he is friends with the witness? The man says that the witness had one sided love with the woman so he met her all the time. Dooseob asks if he went to his house on the day of the crime? The man says yes.
Dooseob goes back and tells this to everyone.
Flashback to the witness running of to the defendents house and passing the man on the street. he actually told him that he was going to noona’s house.
Jinsim thinks he might be the witness. But Jungrok thinks he might not be only a witness.
Meanwhile, Yeorum interogates the witness about the case. She asks questions to him, but he starts talking abotu things out of context like where he should deliver meat. Yeorum ends up telling her secretary that this man is a witness, but he might not be helpful to them. If he says something like how hard the violence is against Im Youngi then that is not good for us. The secretary says that she heard they were good friends, so yeorum tells them that they can release him.
In the law office, Jungrok is about to head out. Jinsim tells him to eat some ginseng. She tells him to eat it in front of her. Right now. So he does. She asks if it is good and says that she got it for him because he is weak. He says that he is not weak, you didn’t see it yesterday because you were shocked. He hit me properly, normal people would be nocked out but I stood up and followed him and caught him, so dont’ say I am weak. I can call you on defamation.
She lightly says that she is the one that called the police and went to the hospital with him and brought this genseng, wow, you are too bad. he says that he doesn’t mean it, but it is a scary thing so you should be reserved in saying those things. She tells him okay, be careful. He heads out. She frets about whether something will happen today.
Jungrok goes to meet the defendant and asks about the day of the crime. You were injured, so how did you stab someone twice and kill him even though he is much bigger than you?
She says that she just thought about surviving, that is all she thought about. he says that this is not that simple. It is not like a movie or TV, a knife is difficult to penetrate the body because of bones. SO people who stab someone for the first time in their life usually injure their hands.
She hides her hands.
He asks if he knows Park Soomyoung (the witness). She says that she knows him, he works at the butcher shop. Jungrok mentions that he heard they were good friends, the majority of your neighbors say so. She says that is nonsense, she would not be friends with him.

In the law offices, CEO Yeon talks about how he is so nervous. Then Jungrok comes in so he hops up to great him. But Jungrok only wants to talk to Dooseob. CEO Yeon says that Jungrok has no manners, but he might have a secret weapon!
Jungrok asks Dooseob if he tried to convince the witness to come to the trial? Dooseob says he tried, it was difficult. Jinsim asks if she can go with Dooseob to try and convince him. He agrees. But he tells her that he thinks she should not go to the trial today. A lot of reporters will be there today, much more than last time, so it should be uncomfortable. She says okay and then tells him that she thinks everything will go well.
The new trial starts. The witness watches from his mothers butcher shop. He sees noona on the TV and starts crying. It looks like he wants to do something so he runs out. His mother asks where he is going? He should go deliver!
He runs up the street and runs into Dooseob and JInsim. Jinsim ends up talking to him on a park bench.
JS – Do you remember me? Back then, I saw you. I was next to the lawyer that you attacked. I was really angry. The person you hit is the person that I like. Someone I like got injured, I was so mad.
Man – Sorry, sorry, sorry.
JS – You shuold understand how I feel. You don’t want someone you love to get injured or to have a hard time.
Man – I dont’ like it! I dont’ like noona to get hurt!
JS – If you don’t say something then noona will suffer more. If you dont’ do it today then you will not be able to see noona for a long time.
The man starts to think about it.
Meanwhile, the court case continues. Protesters are outside arguing for self defense. Inside yeorum talks to an expert about the blood marks. This man has a different opinion about the blood marks. If you have to stab the victim with all your effort, then you will get this blood mark.
Yeorum is done with questioning.
Jungrok starts questioning him.
JR – How much does the blood mark show?
Man – We know what happens on the scene
JR – Did you find a blood mark on Im Yooni also? You did not find it on her clothing, is that true?
Man – Yes
JR – So that means that there is a possibility that she is not the murderer?
Yeorum – I Object, that is a fishing question
Judge – I deny it, please continue.
Man – it is possible
Then the witness comes in. Jungrok says that he has a new witness request. the judge says that they did not request it, so why now? Jungrok says that this man went to the scene of the crime. he is the only witness to the case or he can be another suspect. Can you grant it?
The man takes his seat.
JR – Let me ask you a request, can you write your name?
JR – Are you right handed for writing or eating?
Man – yes
JR – you live with your mother a butcher, right?
Man – yes
JR – You do the delivery but you do not cut the meat, your mother does right?
Man – yes
JR – So you never use a knife
Man – Yes
JR – So, when did the injury on your thumb happen? You went to her house to deliver meat on the day of the crime, right?
Man – yes
JR – From the report, on the day of the crime you went to the emergency room and were treated for a 3 cm cut on your thumb. I submit his medical report for evidence. usually, when a normal person stabs someone, the knife does not penetrate easily so they can easily be injured on their hand. The prosecutor trusted Im Yooni’s confession and did not prosecute Park Soomyoung. They wanted to cover up this case from the begining due to the big issue that it caused. They did not investigate the truth of the case. I am asking you. On that day, who killed Kim Youngtae?
Yeorum – I OBJECT. At the site of the crime we did not find any trae of Park Soomyoung (the witness). He is tricking us. this is all based on his imagination.
JR – What the prosecutor submitted as her crime evidence is only the confession and autopsy report. But the autopsy report does not match the confession. As the prosecutor says, it does not make sense for a woman with an injury that requires 9 weeks to heal can stab a man like that. park Soomyoung went to the site of the crime that day and had a cut wound on his thumb. Im yooni says that she killed him, but she is not in a condition that can do it. I have one more question, who killed Kim Youngtae.
Man – Well, who stabbed….him….who stabbed him….
Defendent – NO DON’T SAY ANYTHING (a guard starts to pull him away)
Man – Don’t hit noona! I did it, I stabbed him! She was getting hit that day. Noona was getting hit. I walked in and saw it. That day. Noona.
Flashback to her husband beating her, she was a bloody mess. The witness tells the husband not to do it. She tells him to run away. The witness sees a knife in the kitchen. The husband hits her again.
Man – I did it. Noona was getting hit every day. Every day. I did it.

After the court case, the defendent leaves, she is swarmed by reporters. The defendent says that she wanted her husband to die, so it was like she killed him. the news says that there was another person to commit the murder. They found the clothing he wore in his house as well.
The law team watches this all in the office. Moonhee and Yoonhyuk have their playful banter back and forth about it and then Jungrok comes in They all cheer and the CEO hugs Jungrok. Yeon wants to celebrate, but Jungrok says that he wants to rest. Choi is all like, we can do it anyway! The CEO has to tell him that there are no parties without the main person your celebrating, think about it.
Jungrok goes back to his office and sees Jinsim there. She tells him that he should be very tired. he asks for her to go to a restaurant with me.
They eat potato porkback soup (gamjaetang). This is the place she said she wanted to eat earlier when she was caught in the begining of the show. So they go to this place to eat. Jinsim tells him that he does not look that happy. She thinks it is strange because he is usually happy to win. Is this about Yeorum?
He says that is part of it. But, Im Yooni confessed for Park Soomyoung. Park Soomyoung murdered someone for Park Yooni. I understand everything so I can’t just be happy. he starts to pour his drink. She garbs it and pours his soju for him and then they toast and drink together.
JR – thank you so much
YS – For what?
JR – For telling me I was going to win and worrying about my injury more than others
YS – It was nothing….by the way, I hae a question. You said you were tired and don’t need to go drink. Why did you want to drink soju with me?
JR – Today, I just wanted to drink with you and me only.
She smiles happily and he does too.
he starts to pour his own soju, she touches the bottle which shows that you should not pour by yourself. He smiles and they drink some more.
Afterward, they walk up the street. She says that it is colder than expected and then starts laughing. he asks why she is laughing.
JS – This reminds me of the day we went to the botanical garden. Back then you told me, when my hands are cold I should put them in the pocket. I misunderstood and put them in your pocket. that was so embarrassing. i was in a lot of dramas so sometimes I am not realistic. You don’t have to give me your pocket because my hands are cold.
He lightly holds her hand and then puts it in his pocket.
JR – I worry about you. As much as you worry about me and comfort me….I want to do that now.
She looks at him questioningly.

Aw, man. I didn’t want the friend to get in trouble. The plus side is that it was self defense (or something like that?) and he does have a mental disability so his sentence should be light. Argh, why do they have to have all these serious cases to kill all the fun out of this show! Can’t they just have fluffy cases or money laundering cases or something?
JS – I wish that person is someone that moves my heart
VO – A workshop with the Universe goddess Oh Yoonseon!
JK – You don’t like Yoonseo at all.
YH – I went to buy a hot bar (sausage) for Yoonseo, but he is the only one coming back empty handed.
Screen – Things that Oh Yoonseo likes
VO – Wait for the next move. But nothing from the guy.
JS – Lawyer! You are a bad person!
JR – Super angry
SW – Who dates that logically? Who dates with knowing everything
JS – Does he even like me?
JR – I am a slow person, so I will approach you step by step with my own pace
