KOREAN DRAMA V.I.P: EPISODE 10 (19&20) RECAP PART 2
Sung-joon leaves his office dressed in his suit. His wife asks where he is going so he says that he is going to a funeral. She asks if she knows that person? He says no, so she can rest at home.
So he goes to the funeral which looks like it is his fathers funeral? the brother wants to get into it some more, but the mother or sister stops him and says that she is the one that called him.
So Sung-joon pays his respects to his father and leaves. But right outside he gets a call from the VP and goes to meet him at a hotel.
The VP gives him something and tells him that he did a good job. Then is wife storms out from a private dining room. The VP looks at her and then asks Sung-joon if he can stay with Yuri and drive her home? I have to go to my wife. He pats Sung-joon on the shoulder and heads off.
So Sung-joon drives Yuri home. She sees a street restaurant and says that she would like to go to it. She has never eaten at a place like that before. So he stops there with her and lets her eat whatever seh wants.
She eats and drinks soju. But he does not want her to drink so much. However, he ends up pouring it for her and they start to drink together.
She asks if anyone died? When someone dies, do you think that it all really ends? the past and sadness and pain. Do you think it all disappears? I hope I wasn’t even born. My existence is pain for everyone. I think that Ii should not have been born.
He says that it is not her fault to be born like this. It is not your fault. She thanks him. He keeps drinking.
Later on, she stumbles home and he walks with her. But then she falls when a motorist drives by. She smiles at Sung-joon and says that it is comfortable to sit on the ground so she tells him to sit with her.
He sits with her reluctantly. She looks at him and asks, what happened to him? You look sad.
He doesn’t say anything at first, but then he looks over at her big brown eyes and says that he feels empty. He tell sher that his father died today. He knows that he is the son of an affair woman.
When people ask about his father, he told them that he was dead. Even my wife. Everyone thinks that my father is dead already. I thought I would be happy if he died.
She tells him that he can cry, it is a sad thing. He says that he thought he would be okay if he died. But ~. He puts his hand over his face. Then he says that he didn’t want him to die. If he dies like that~. He puts his hand over his face again as he chokes back his words.
She lightly touches his arm and then pats him on the back as he continues crying on the street.
VO – you know, those things. Those stories that only you know. She knew about it. But it made me feel good. It comforted me that I could say that.
Jin-ho asks him if he had secrets like that? Even if you have it, then your wife should know about it.
Jin-young sits with San-woo and Yuri and talks about the gifts. They send a lot of wine and flowers. Sang-woo assk why she is using Jongdaemal all of a sudden.
Ji-young says that she uses jogdaemal at work. Sang woo tells her that seh always uses Banmal with him. Ji-young send him a dirty look and then starts to talk to Yuri again.
She tells her that VIP here is different from VIP’s elsewhere so we need to have distinguishable gifts.
Then Jung-sun comes in with her stark mood. The team leaves and sees the company people all bowing to Yuri as they pass by her. They think about how things have changed.
Jung-sun, Sang-woo, and Yuri go outside to drink something hot. Jung-sun asks Yuri if she has a boyfriend. Sang-woo gulps. Yuri says that she does not. Jung-sun mentions setting her up. Yuri says she is okay.
Sung-joon says that she thinks Yuri will be very truthful to the person she dates. Do you have someone? You look like you do. Yuri looks on guility. Sang-woo breaks this up and says that he thinks he should go back. I have urgent work. Manager Lee asked me to come.
Jung-sun tells them that they can go and starts to head off. Yuri stays behind as if she was just found out and looks at Jung-sun walking away.
In the offices, Byung-hoon calls to talk to Mina. Jung-soon tells him that she is off today. He mutters that he forgot about that and then hangs up. He sees that Mina is shown as being off today.
Jung-sun remembers that Mina told her she is not giving birth gain. Then Yuri goes up to her desk and tells her she has an idea to do something with burth month flowers for the gifts. Jung-sun says that they can look into it.
Yurii goes to her desk. Then she goes back to Jung-sun and talks about perfume. But she does not know French so she cannot make the call. Jung-sun makes the call in French and says that she wants to talk to their perfumist. Then she tells Yuri that she can send an English email to them. But show it to me first before you send it.
Yuri says okay and heads back to her desk. She starts to google how to write an email in English.
Meanwhile, Mina is on the table to have her abortion. But she shows second thoughts and tell them not today. Then her husband comes running in. She asks how he knew. He tells her that they should leave and go talk.
So they go talk at a cafe. He tells her that he could not contact her so he went to her place and saw the pregnancy diary and asked the hospital. They told me that you had an appointment. I did not know that it was surgery. How could you not say that to me.
She says that if she told him that he would want her to give birth. This is why she did it, because she did not want to give birth. He asks if that is why she left home?
She says that giving birth is easy. But after that, what are you going to do? I am the one that is responsible for it. He says that he knows he is super dumb, but you should talk to me. How can you just decide this without me? I am scared of you. I did not know that you were this scary.
He storms out, she sobs at the table.
A work, Yuri has finally finished her English letter and show it to Jung-sun. The letter looks perfectly serviceable, though it is not completely professional. Jung-sun fixes it and then sends it to Yuri to email.
She also tells Yuri that they talk to foreigners a lot on their team. So they only accept people who can speak English. You working here is a favor. Sang-woo came 6 months before you and is still a supporting job ( and the character chart says that he went to all top school so he is a pretty bright person).
Jung-sun says that no one gives this big important job to someone who has only worked a couple months. This is also a favor. If you are not the VP’s daughter, then you would not get this kind of favor. That is what you deserve so you do not need to say sorry. You deserve it.
It seems like you want to pretend to be a good person. Just stop. It makes me uncomfortable. She walks out. Yuri looks affected.
The next day, Hyun-ah moves into her octapang apartment. She lugs all her things upstairs and rests on the pyongsang. She looks around and says that at least it has a nice view.
At home. Jung-sun sits at her makeup desk and takes off her wedding ring as she prepares for dinner with the VP and his family.
Jung-sun and Sung-joon sit at the dinner in a private room together. He asks her why she agreed to come. She tells him not to mistake it, this is not for him.
Then the VP, his wife, and Yuri come in. They all settle in to eat. The VP tells Jung-sun that his wife does not compliment people too much, but she likes you Jung-sun.
The wife says nice things about Jung-sun. Jung-sun thanks her. The wife tells Sung-joon that he has a good wife. but then they start to eat and Yuri tells Sung-joon that this has nuts in it.
Sung-joon asks how she knows he has a nut allergy? The VP tries to clear the mood and says that Yuri is good friends with Yuri to know what he likes.
Jung-soon looks at this and sighs back her anger. She then puts her things on the table and addresses the VP. She tells him that she has something to them him. Sung-joon tells her to stop.
JS – Yuri and Sung-joon love each other.
Everyone is all like, say what? But then the VP gulps down his food and says that he actually asked Sung-joon to take care of Yuri, so it is not like that.
BUT THEN – Jung-sun slides over a CCTV photo of Yuri hugging Sung-joon from behind. The VP looks at this, startled and then looks at Sung-joon and asks, is this true?
He sits back in his seat and then looks at Yuri.
JS – I thing you all have something to talk about. So, excuse me.
She leaves. Sung-joon also gets up. He holds her arm in the hallway to stop her. She pulls it away.
SJ – Let’s talk.
JS – What! You lied to me without even blinking your eyes. You make fun of me in front of me? How can you have an affair like – you are dirty. Because of your dirty thing, my ten years with you became a nightmare. You are making my every moment hell! I will show you what it is like to lose everything. Let’s go together to hell.
She storms off.
He hangs his head as he looks at her leave. Then he turns and sees the VP walking up to him. He bows. He tells him that the can talk about it tomorrow. The wife kind of huffs as she walks by. Yuri looks so confused and thinks about stopping, but keeps following.
Cut to Jung-sun at home. She opens the secret room that she is always standing in front of. It is the baby’s room and looks so adorable. She plays music from the crib and sits to listen to it.
She starts to softly cry as she looks at the crib ornament spinning around.
OMG! Jung-sun is so bout it! I cannot believe that she just dropped that huge social bomb at this dinner party. That is the best! Complete thoughts coming up with the preview in a separate post!
