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 on a separate post!
KOREAN DRAMA V.I.P: EPISODE 11 (21&22) RECAP – PART 2
Jung-sun looks for Harim all around the area. Then she finds her in the princess wagon and takes her to talk at a table. She tells Jung-sun that she prepared everything that Min-joon likes but he did not like it at all.
Jung-sun sys that Min-joon is a bad guy. The girl says that he is not a bad guy. Just today he does not behave well, but he is always kind.
Jung-sun asks if she likes him so much? She says yes. Jung-sun says that is good for Min-jun since he has someone that likes him so much.
The girl says that Min-joon wants to break up with her, he does not like her anymore. Our relationship was good. I hate Min-joon. She starts balling. Jung-sun gives her a hug and says that it will be okay.
Back in the interview, the interview is all done so Jin-ho casually talks to Yuri about how general manager Na is the team leader now so their team hsould have a better mood.
Yuri kind of says yes quietly. Jin-jo tell sher that executive park is so tiring and cranky and does not say much. I could only imagine how he is as a boss, a nightmare.
She tries to hold back her temper and says pleasantly that she will leave now. He says okay and looks at her walking off. it looks like he thinks she is the affiar woman because we alsosee a flashback where he remembered her looking at Sung-joon or something like that.
In the burthday party, Harim goes back to open her gifts. She is pretty grumpy, but immediately lights up when she gets a puppy. Jung-sun is happy to see that as well and walks off to the little house where Sang-woo was giving the interviews.
Jung-sun goes inside the room and starts to confess her own question. Sang-woo is also there as well, though Jung-sun does not know that.
Sang-woo tells her to tell him if she has any worried. But his voice is like the alpacas. Jung-sun says that she lost something very precious for her. He asks what that is? A person? She says no, the memory, I don’t know what to do.
He tells her to wait a moment and says that he went to the future and came back. I saw your future. You looked happy. You looked cool and happy in the future as if nothing happened. So dont’ worry, you will be happy. I guarantee you that.
She thanks him and then sighs as she sits there a bit longer.
Later on, Ji-young mentions that the manager has come. He is there with yuri. The VP walks up to Jung-sun who bows and asks Yuri if she has anything to tell general manager Na about todays event?
Yuri looks confused. The VP says that now she has to see the big picture and learn how to talk to a person that works for her. Everyone is all like, ooooooooo. The VP tells Jung-sun to send him the report tomorrow. Then he leaves.
Ji-young curses and Jung-sun starts to clean up. San-woo and Hyun-ah are all like, wtf?
Then Sung-joon comes walking up as the VP leaves with Yuri. he ays that he did not know that he was coming. He also tells him that he will rearrange their meeting, don’t worry about it. (Uh oh, it looks like he is being sidelined by the VP). Jug-sun bows the VP away.
In the party, everyone starts to clean up. Jung-sun bows to Sung-joon like he is their boss and gets back to work. Sang-woo comes up to him and says that he does not know if he should tell him this but you should be clear on who the boss is on our team. General manager Na worked for the team the longest, but the VP told Yuri that General Manager Na is working under her. Please take care of this.
Elsewhere at the party, Jung-sun and team ask Harim if it was a fun day today? She says yes, she is so happy that she has a puppy. Then she leaves happily but she tells Jung-sun that it was a secret that she cried and happily waves to her as she leaves. They all comment how it is great to be a kid since they get happy super easily.
On the way back, the VP tells Yuri that he is sending general manager Na to Ulsan. He cannot put her and general manager Na on the same team. But then he gets a phone call and yells into the phone – WHAT!
Cut to the company where we see a news special where the chairman of Sung Un appointed the daughter as the new CEO of the department store. SO it is not the VP and it is not Ha Young-woong. This is huge news. The news says that the industry thought that Ha Jae-woong would be the CEO.
Later that night, Mina heads out somewhere, the husband sees her running off and follows.
In the office, Jung-sun gets a call from an HR eunnie who asks what happened, why are you being transferred? You are being sent to Ulsan department store next week to the food manager team. Jung-sun is all like, what? The HR eunnie sys that she thinks the VP did it, but your husband is the VP’s right hand man so it should not be. I thought you would be the team leader for the VIP team. Jung-sun thanks her and hangs up.
Meanwhile, Jin-ho drinks with Sung-joon at a bar. They talk about maybe the VP did not know that his noona would be CEO? So the war of brothers became a war of siblings. Jin-ho then tells him that he thought about something strange. he will just ask him since he cann’t forget about it. That woman is not Yuri right? It isn’t her right?
But Sung-joon does not respond and just hangs his head. SO Jin-ho yells, ARE YOU CRAZY! HOW CAN YOU DO THAT WITH THE WOMAN ON YOUR WIFES TEAM! How can you do that to your wife? You are not that kind of person! How can you do that!
Sung-joon says that he did not know that he was that emotional and without a plan, until he met her. Jin-ho says that this drives him crazy, does the VP know about this? Be careful, the VP is keeping his distance from you now. You know what will happen if he gets angry. Sung-joon nods.
Jin-ho asks how his wife is. Sung-joon does not say anything.
Cut to Jung-sun at home applying lotion. She thinks about what Ji-young said to Yuri about how she is getting prettier and about how young age is the best. Jung-sun sits thinking about this for awhile and then continues applying her face lotion.
In the VP’s office, he talks to someone about the power game in the office and curses the people that betrayed him. Then Yuri comes in and sits. He tells her that he checked with Executive Park, but I called you to make sure with you also. Are you really done with Executive Park? You should be. It is not a good situation now. In this situation, if people know about you affair, that would not be good.
Yuri says that he and Na will be divorced, so it does not matter. He asks, Yuri, what in~. But her phone buzzes so she asks permission to pick it up and answers it.
Meanwhile, Mina goes to a private room at a men’s club. Director Bae is there with two women happily drinking. He tells the other two women to leave and pats his eat for Mina to sit.
She sits very far away. he pats his seat and tells her to sit close to him. But she is not so he walks all the way over to her and pours her a drink. She tells him that seh cannot do this. She can do something else, but not what you ask me to do. It is difficult.
He says, okay, but, I cannot guarantee your future. I am still an executive. I still have power to fire an employee. She says that waht he asked her to do what illegal. If they know that you asked me to do it then you will be in trouble. He smiles and nods. then he tells her that it should be difficult for her. SOmeone like you.
He pats her on the leg and says that if seh can’t do it, then lets do something else. He holds her leg tightly and says that it will be equal if you do this. She pushes him away and runs to the door. He falls back and says that she does not look like she has given birth to two kids. This is a compliment to you.
She goes outside and falls on the floor. Her husband is right there and checks on her. Then he goes inside the room and starts to beat the #$%& out of Director Baek. Min runs back in and tells him to stop. You have three kids! Just stop!
They walk out. Bae drunkenly says to call the police. Call 911….Then he stands up and says that today he will go home. If you do not want to send your husband to jail then we should have a proper conversation tomorrow.
Byung-hoon is about to beat him up again, but Mina holds him back. then they two of them start to talk about what happened between the two of them. She tells him that he screwed it all up. BH says that he will kill that guy, he starts to leave to do that. She yells, you will kill me!
She he sits next to her for a moment and apologizes. He says that she wanted to talk to him, so if he properly talked to her then this would not have happened. So tell me know, I will listen to you. Tell me everything.
Cut to a funeral for Yuri’s mother. Yuri is sitting alone. A man comes in and says that he took care of everything, let me know if you need anything. Then he leaves.
Cut to Sung-joon getting a call from Yuri. He is about to go inside his home. He does not pick up at first, but then picks up the phone. He asks her what happened. She says that her mother just died and starts to cry.
He is standing up looking off like, aw man, seriously? How can I not see her like this.
Inside, Jung-sun picks up a paper from the bed. it is a divorce paper. She added all her information to it, but he has not added his information yet. then there is a ring on the door. She puts the paper up and goes to answer it.
Cut to Jung-sun and Sung-joon sitting in the living room. She asks what he wants. He says, since then I never talked to you.
JS – Why didi you do that? Why did you do that?
SJ – He says nothing
JS – Okay, after the baby ended like that, it was a difficult time. But it was only one year. You can’t just endure for that time?
SJ – it wasn’t one year for me. Not just one year. It was difficult for me after losing our kid. I deserve to be tired and have a hard time.
JS – is that why you had an affair, because I made you tired?
SJ – I am just telling you, it was not easy for me. I waited for you. Not until you became okay. I waited for the time to overcome this together. But for you, I wasn’t there. It was the most difficult time for me also, because you were not there.
JS – You should have told me that you were tired and it was difficult!
SJ – You were about to die! I thought, if I showed you that I am also having a hard time then everything would collapse!
JS – F-you, you just avoided it. You did not want to face it, so you avoided it.
SJ – You do not know how I was. I was about to go crazy! I was just surviving every day.
JS – So, living with me is just surviving everyday, day-to-day. So where you happy and could breath after meeting that woman? Why did you come back then?
SJ – I wanted to put everything back! I know that I am crazy, but I want to put it back together. When you said to hold you once. I wanted to grab that chance.
JS – You came back because I dragged you?
SJ – it is not like that! *Starts crying* You – were the best thing that happened in my life so I wanted to protect it forever. And she is something that should not happen in my life. But, I know that I should not do this. But, she looked…in pain.
JS – So you really loved her? …. What about me? Was that not love?
SJ – Not like that. Jung-sun…
JS – *wipes a tear* Go, just go.
He hangs his head and takes a few deep tight breathes then stands.
JS – Do you still love her?
SJ – Sorry.
He looks at her regretfully and leaves.
She tries to hold back angry tears.
He walks outside and stares at the ground for a long time.
She sits inside and stares at the floor.
Yuri sits at the funeral and stares at the wall then her head turns.
Sung-joon has shown up at the funeral and walks to be by Yuri’s side. She cries when he kneels in front of her and says that her mother died. I only have my mom. I only have mom but mom is…
He sits by her and comforts her.
SJ – I will be here – I will be next to you.
He puts his harm around her and holds her as she cries into his chest.
