Shorthand Character Chart: V.I.P 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 on a separate post!
KOREAN DRAMA V.I.P: EPISODE 14 (27&28) RECAP – PART 2
The CEO talks to someone about how much their father likes Jae-woong the most (the VP). She says that all the most expensive things were given to him. She knows that she is just the CEO because abonim is giving Jae-woong a lesson. But I do not want to just be a puppet, that is not fun.
So she tells this person that she will attack Jae-woong. But too many people work for him. So to make people listen to me, I need to start over with everything. This person asks her if this is too dangerous? She says that before he attacks her, she needs to attack him. Then she asks this guy, whose line will you be on? (this guy looks like a younger executive).
Sang-woo drives Jung-sun around for work. he asks if she is feeling okay? She says that she has stomach pain due to stress. That’s it, it happens often. he tells her it is because she is opposing him like this. Take care of your health, you don’t look too good recently.
She thanks him for his consideration and they get to the matchmaker. Yuri and Sung-joon were driving in the car ahead of them.
Jung-sun head in to go in first. They meet with the matchmaker who looks like a modernist painter. Jung-sun says that she heard that her matches are over 85%. We will do our best to make this event as mutually beneficial as possible.
The women tells them that high class matching is easier than normal people because she just needs to see the numbers, there are no emotions involved. So it is easier to match and has a higher rate of success. The information is the most important thing. With the proper information is how the rate will be increased.
Then she looks at Sang-woo and says that he is the foreign affairs ministers son. Everyone is like, wah???? Sang-woo is all like, what??? The matchmaker tells Yuri that she is ha Jae-woong’s daughter. So if I can interview you two, then I will take the job.
Sang-woo and Yuri agree to answer a few questions.
Cut to Sang-woo being interviewed and Jung-sun waiting for him at a table and the other two waiting at a cough. Sang-woo comes out and tells Jung-sun that she knows everything about him, even things he does not know about his own family. Jung-sun tells him that he did a good job.
Now it is Yuri’s turn, Jung-sun says that she does not have to do it, but she says she will do it and goes in. Jung-sun holds her belly with slight pain. Sang-woo looks at Sung-joon who is not doing anything about this and then looks at Jung-sun in pain.
Meanwhile, Yuri is in the room with the matchmaker. The matchmaker tells her that this is not an interrogation, so do not be nervous. Yuri smiles nervous and says okay. the matchmaker turns on her tape recorder.
MM – Until 28, you live with your mother and now have moved into your fathers care now that the news has broken. Your mother was in a nursing home but recently died. Your father does not have any kids so the chairman put you under the family name. Well, these things you can find out with a few internet clicks. The information I want starts from here. What is your ideal husband type?
Yuri Well, just…a warm and good person.
MM – That is what On Yuri wants, but for Ha Yuri it should be a little different. I will ask you one more time. What is you ideal husband type for Ha Yuri?
Yuri – *looking stunned*
In the waiting room, Jung-sun’s stomach pain worsens. Sung-joon sees her struggling and stands up to get some water. Sang-woo runs back into the room and tells Sung-joon that he will do it. I think you not being in front of her is the best thing. So he takes the water and he also bought her some pain killers so he gives them both to her.
Sung-joon looks at this. Yuri comes out and sees him looking at her, she looks angry.
The matchmaker comes out and pleasantly asks them to send her the contract. I will check and get back with you. They all bow and the team lets themselves out. But Jung-sun wants to meet the match maker privately.
She goes into her office and asks her if she knows Lee Soo-jung? She is one of our VIPs but I do not have any information of hers. So I just wanted to ask you just in case you had any information on her.
The match maker says that she is the head of a foundation, but you don’t need to know about her anymore because she will not be part of the Black Society anyway. Jung-sun asks her what she means?
She woman says that she is Ha Jae-woong’s mistress. Even the wife knows about it and ignores it, it is a long running relationship. Jung-sun i stunned.
In the car ride back, Sung-joon asks Yuri what she is thinking about? She says that Sang-woo is really nice to general manager Na, right? Maybe he is interested in her? Sung-joon mutters, that he doesn’t know.
Meanwhile, Sang-woo drives Jung-sun to a clinic. She tells him that he is fine, the medicine helped a lot. But he says that she should not ignore it. She thanks him for caring about her and they go inside where she rests and gets an IV. Sang-woo sleeps in the chair next to her.
Jung-sun sits up and thinks while he sleeps. She thinks about the match maker and what she said about the mistress for Ha Jae-woong and how she will not be part of the Black Society.
HA FAMILY DINNER
Cut to the family diner of the Ha family. Young-woong’s daughter is there and says that her grandfather told her that the lion pushes the offspring from a cliff and only picks the one that survives. I think our family is the same. So eunnie should have the same rule, that is fair right?
The grandfather chuckles and the CEO noona says that the granddaughter is just like you father. The grandfather chuckles and says that in Ha family, you need to take care of yourself. The wife looks at them and says, don’t worry, she will be good at that.
Yuri tells them okay, I will make sure. The grandpa tells the other two grandsons that it is for them also, okay? Yuri nervously eats her soup.
Later on, she heads back to the room and looks at them all talking as a family. She decides to just walk around the house. Her father comes walking up the hallway so Yuri asks him if he would like to go to her mothers resting place since he could not go to the funeral.
Her father tells her that for him, her mother was just someone he knew in his 20s, no more and no less than that. Now, you are part of our family so it is better for you to forget about her as much as possible. He says this all pleasantly, but it is a punch to Yuri’s gut.
Yuri watches her father and his wife drive off and then heads out on her own. While riding away, she gets a text from Sung-joon telling her happy birthday. lets have dinner together.
So they both go to her place and walk inside. In the distance, we see that someone is watching them.
Upstairs, Sung-joon cooks for her and waits for her to try it. She thanks him and tells him that it tastes good. He tells her to enjoy it. She ask him, so it has been ten years since someone else made miyukguk for my birthday (sea weed soup). After my mother died, there is no room for that. Thank you.
He also bought her a small all while cake with yellow on top and a single candle. She blows out the candle and tells him that she hopes they can celebrate next year together as well.
Elsewhere, Jin-chul tells all the people in their motorcycle team that whoever drinks should walk home! They are all around several tables and eating happily with all their motorcycle gear on. Jung-sun tells him that he is the best.
Afterwards, Jung-sun looks out over the view outside. he asks her if she is trying to empty her brain out here? About that guy? She says yes, they are done emotionally, but not on paper.
Before, she did not know why the someone would not divorce a person who had an affair, but now I understand. I only have a grudge. If I am unfortunate then I hope that other person is also unhappy.
Jin-chul tells her that as time passes, your grudge will be numb as well. Just go to the end. Whatever is waiting at the end, you have to see it, then you can really end it. She thinks about this.
Elsewhere, Yuri puts a plate of cake at her mothers resting place at the memorial building. She starts to cry softly. Sung-joon puts an arm around her warmly and then tells her that he will wait outside.
Yuri nods and then kneels to talk to her mother alone. She asks her if she is happy over there and tells her that she does not have a mom, she feels empty over here alone. Now I have more family than just you and me, but I feel even more alone. But do not worry too much. I have him. I should be okay.
Cut to Sung-joon driving her back. He gets a call from his mother saying that she made kimchi and will bring it by the house. he says that no one is there, he will pick it up. She says that she can take it to the security person, it is well fermented so don’t leave it out.
But he says that he will pick it up and tells her that he will contact her after work. They hang up. Yuri tells him that he can go since his mother is waiting for him.
So he goes to his mothers place where she says that she also sent some to his father in law. She tells Sung-joon that Jung-sun did not look good recently. She wants to take her to a good Korean medicine doctor.
Sung-joon looks like he is about to stuff his foot all the way into his mouth. He hangs his head and tells his mother that he has to tell her something.
Cut to him apologizing as they sit on the couch. His mother is shocked and says, what is this? Why are you getting divorced? Then she remembers what Sung-jun said about her friend whose husband had an affair and wants a divorce. The mother asks if he is dating someone else? you shouldn’t….how can you! How can you do that! You know how I lived my life! How can you do that!
She starts to hit him over and over again and then cries.
Meanwhile, Jung-sun is looking up lots of information at the company. She is looking up information on the secret VIP person who is the mistress for Jae-woong.
VO – the wife even knows about it, it is a long term relationship.
Back at his mothers place, the mother tells him that he does not even know what he did. If he knew then he would not have done this.
Mother – When you first brought Jung-sun to me, I was so relieved. Jung-sun is a good person, but that is not the only reason. With her, I thought that you would not live like me all up in the air. I thought you would be wel grounded and rooted. I was so happy about it. But now you think what you feel is love even though you know that you are jumping into the fire. It is unavoidable. Well, whom can I blame. You are just like your mom. But, because of your momentary feelings, you just lost your world You don’t know what you lost. *stars sobbing* You don’t know what you lost.
A POSH PLACE
Jung-sun thanks the VPs wife for meeting with her. She tells her that first of all, between ha Jae-woong and Park Sung-joon, is it related to Lee Soo-jung?
The wife says that she found it out quicker than expected.
Wife – Park Sung-joon takes care of my husbands affairs. You know, he just gives them money and gets a non disclosure agreements. he has taken care of a lot. I think he actually does a good job. Are you already shocked? He does not trust anyone but he trusted Executive Park a lot. Also, Sung-joon takes care of Jae-woong’s secret money (because the affair woman runs a charity). Executive Park is the co-owner of that.
Jung-soon tries to contain how stunned she is.
Wife – You don’t know about your husband at all. Would you like to spread the word around? If you break the news about the affair and the secret bank account, then Sung-joon and Yuri will both will be destroyed. Don’t you want to destroy them?
Jung-sun asks, what about the VP, he will be destroyed also. The wife does not answer.
Elsewhere, we see the person who took photos of Yuri and Sung-joon. It was former executive Bae Do-il. He looks at the photos happily.
Cut to Jung-sun and Sung-joon running into each other at the company. Jung-sun starts to think about the conversation with the wife and we see a lot of flashback to the affair women that Sung-joon took care of.
Wife – Park Sung-joon took care of my husbands affair woman, he has taken care of a lot of them already. Also, my husband has a secret account and executive Park and the affair woman own the account.
Jung-sun looks at her husband as if she is seeing him for the first time.
Oh, I love it so much! Give me more! The plot thickens, y’all. So many tracks are coming out that were laid in the beginning and I am riding this train all the way to the end.
