This is part 2 of our recap for When the Weather is Fine!
Caution: Be wary of typos
Shorthand Character Chart: coming up
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!
KOREAN DRAMA I’LL SEE YOU WHEN THE WEATHER IS FINE EPISODE 8 – PART 2
In the bookstore, Eun-seob looks at Hye-won for a moment and puts the heater next to her, then walks away. The Bluebird book is right next to her.
Later on, she wakes up as everyone starts to come inside for the book club. They all start to move things around so they can all sit happily and read the books. After that, Halabogi cooks bread so they eat that along with pie.
Soo-jung opens a newspaper that comes to life like a drawing. She says that she read a beautiful article. In England, an 80 year old English man decided to travel with the travel book he had forever. The old man decided to go to Germany. That place had a music festival every year. But something was strange, he followed the travel guide but there was no city. He got lost in the forest.
He was lost in the forest for a couple days and finally found his way out. he went back to his hometown and showed everyone that the map was wrong. But someone told him that actually this map is from World War I. It has been 100 years. So the old man went somewhere he had been dreaming his entire life. But it was a very different place than the map he was always looking at and imagining.
GS – You said it was a beautiful article but that is a sad article.
SJ – Really? I thought it was beautiful. Even though he failed, the old man still went through all that for his dream. I wanted to applaud him. As you know, my dream is to go far far away like that.
Whi thinks that is like the Bluebird story. The brother and sister that looked for happiness in the book. But they came back without finding it. Seung-ho thinks that is too bad for them. But Whi says it is okay, when they came back they found a happiness bird in their birdcage.
The old man shows Eun-seob that more bread is ready so he heads over to get it.
Hyun-ji tells Whi that she did not like that story. Whi asks why, it has a super happy ending. Hyun-ji thinks it is nonsense. happiness is always with me but I did not know about it? That is so depressing. Whi asks why? They might not have known about it. Like how I am a gem but Kim Yong-soo does not know that I am a gem.
But you are not a gem to him. Whi says she is not listening. Hyun-ji reiterates that she does not like that story.
Hye-won says that she does not like it as well. We took a long journey to find a blue bird of happiness but the story says that the bluebird of happiness was actually at home. I think it is an excuse for us who have a difficult time finding happiness.
Eun-seob looks at her as she says this.
HW – I think happiness is far away.
Whi – Eunnie….
HW – This is just my idea
Whi – But I am a gem…
Myeong-yeo walks in front of a super nice home in Seoul. She sees Yoon-taek. It is dark and he is talking to a writer. He asks hr what she is going to do with the signing. She says it all depends on him. Anything you want honey. Can we have another drink? He says yes, they can have another.
It appears that he might be dating this woman?
Myung-yeo looks on quietly. She still wears her shades, even though it is dark out.
Back at the Bookstore, it is the end of the bookclub so Hye-won tells him that she will leave. He gives her the cold medicine and says that she should take it when she sleeps, she will get over her cold quicker.
But she tells him that she is okay and hurries out. he looks at her quietly.
She walks home and is halfway up the road when he runs after her and tells her to take it with her. She says she is fine, I don’t want to take it. He stops her but she tells him that she will not take it. He tells her again to take it.
But she says that he is fine when he does not take it, I wont take it. I will be fine. He asks, please take it? She asks what he will do if she takes it?
ES – Do I have to do something?
HW – Yes, I hope yo do.
ES – What kind of thing?
HW – You can answer my confession. I want to hear it. Can you do that?
He thinks back to her telling him that he likes her.
He is quiet. The camera scrolls to a snow man in the field and the light that is on now. He doesn’t say anything.
Hye-won gets home, she took the medicine with her and sets it on the table. She hangs up her coat silently and thinks about what he said.
ES – I am sorry. I am really sorry.
She kneels by the closet and starts to tear up. A few tears falls as she tries not to cry.
ES – *hangs his head*
She cries next to her closet.
Eun-seob thinks about what Hye-won said to him when she confessed. he thinks about her fixing her bike in High school and standing just out of the rain without an umbrella. He watched her from the window when he saw her friend give her an umbrella. he had one for her as well.
But last night he didn’t say he liked her. She took the medicine from his hands and walks back to her place. he watched her and looked like he regretted it. He thinks about all this in the bookstore.
Meanwhile, his father sings as he puts on his coat. Whi bursts in and asks where that book is! I have to take it to school!!! Where is it!!!
Appa says that she gave it to Eun-seob to read and tell her the summary. She thinks, oh yeah! What should I do! What should I do! Appa tells her to call Eun-seob.
Eun-seob gets a call at the bookstore. It is his appa asking about the book that he got from Hwi. He asks what the title of it was? Appa asks Whi who says it is The Catcher in The Rye. He will pick it up soon. Eun-seob closes his eyes and says okay.
Whi asks, what did he say! Will he bring it! if I miss it this time then I will get pointes removed!
Appa tells her that it is in the mountains somewhere. Whi tells her appa to tell him to go to the mountains and bring it back! But umma comes in and says NOOOOOO! Never ever ever ever! No mountain! No!
Meanwhile, Hye-won looks out the window at her B&B. It looks like she is looking at the Bookstore.
In the bookstore, Eun-seob’s umma tells him no to go to the mountain! I will go to the mountain! But Eun-seob says that she cannot go to the mountain! Hye-won shows up right then. Umma is super happy to her and is about to ask her to go to the mountain, but Eun-seob stops her from asking.
Hye-won notices that his umma is wearing two different shoes which means that she just stormed in quickly.
Later, Eun-seob tells Hye-won to not worry about what his mother said. I can go to the mountains. But Hye-won tells him that she never said that kind of lie. Let’s go together, it is nothing.
She goes to the mountain and wears her white shoes instead of the ones he got her. She walks ahead of him. But then he walks ahead of her when they go down a rocky path. They don’t talk to each other.
She asks him if he knew about this hill? It is a tomb. He tells her that this is the place where suspicion starts. If you think about something suspicious, then it comes true.
VO – (ES) In high school, I was nervous about abogi driving a tractor.
Flashback to Eun-seob in high school finding out that his appa got injured.
VO – (HW) so misfortune happens?
VO – (ES) no, sometimes good thoughts are realized also.
Another flashback to the high school kids voting on where hey sit. Hae-won sits right next to Eun-seob. He smiles slightly.
In the present, HW says that this is the first time she has seen a wood tombstone. Also, when they are born or died is all a question mark? She takes the leaves off the tomb. He tells her not to doubt, it will come true. Then he keeps walking.
They walk by a little creek He leads.
They get to the little house where he goes inside, she stays outside. She looks around and then up at a cliff just over the house.
He comes back out. She tells him that he can go back first and points to the top of the mountain. She wants to go there since she is here. Bye.
She walks off and he sees that she is wearing those white shoes.
She gets to a shallow river and starts to cross on rocks. he comes up from behind and tells her it is slippery. Then he walks to her and says that she can hold his hand. So she holds his hand and crosses one rock, then she walks the rest of the way herself.
But he follows.
They walk all the way to the peak of the mountain and overlook a massive river and the town. It is gorgeous. She says that she can see this by just spending one hour walking. That is nice.
HW – I can’t look you in the eyes. You don’t like me. I just need to accept that one thing. I can’t do that, sorry.
ES – Its not ….
HW – You were so warm.
She thinks back to all the little wonderful things he did for her like give her a jacket and give her blankets so she could sleep there and fix the light.
HW – You were so warm to me. So I just thought you might. But I won’t do it anymore. You said not to so I won’t.
She looks at him with glassy eyes.
HW – I won’t do it. But, Im Eun-seob….
He looksa t her and waits for her to talk.
HW – No, bye…
She turns to walk away. He grabs her sleeve and pulls her back. then he drops her bag and kisses her. She is surprised.
But they keep kissing and their kiss gets deeper.
She thinks about her aunt telling her something when she was a little kid.
MY – There are bluebirds Hye-won. Trust me.
HW – you never saw it.
MY – Because normally you don’t see them. they show up once in awhile.
HW – How does it show up.
MY – Like a miracle.
HW – What is a miracle?
In the present, Hye-won looks at Eun-seob and asks, how? My thoughts were realized.
VO – (HY) he thing you never thought would happen, happens.
VO – (HW) Who does it?
VO – (HY) The blue bird does it.
Eun-seob looks at Hye-won possibly expecting her to say something and then kisses her again and again and again and she kisses him.
VO – (HY) those things are done by the Bluebird who is always with you. That bird makes the miracles.
Goodnight Bookstore Secret Post
– Posted By Seob
There are some things that you can see better when you are alone.
It is not that bad to learn from loneliness.
Because if you have less expectations then your life flows peacefully.
It is painful to have something that you really want.
But, of course I also have desires.
I kissed Irene in the mountains. I almost went unconscious.
I can’t say it jokingly, that means it is really serious.
She started to live in my head.
We finally have a kiss! Not really a confession but for Eun-seob this has been a very big step to let his feelings out. Jeez, I want to pat him on the back and tell him good job. You could practically see him about to burst with regret for letting her think that he hates her by not saying that he likes her.
Though he did go from 0-60 in a second with nothing and then a big ol deep kiss with Hye-won. LOL. A kiss that she has probably wanted for the last many days. I think it is safe to say that their relationship will have nothing to do with him talking about his feelings and all about him doing nice things for her. Until he can get up the trust to tell her with his thoughts which might not happen for awhile.
Though I can’t wait to see it happen!
EPISODE 9 PREVIEW
HW – I thought you didn’t like me.
ES – Of course not.
JW – W-what, you two? What is going on? So what I saw is true?
YT – Sim Myeong-yeo, you should write what happened from college until now as a novel.
Woman – Eun-seob, do you really not want to publish your book as a book?
ES – Why?
HW – Just
HW – Just in case you disappear all of a sudden
Thank you so much, your detailed translation helps me the impatient one to understands what really going on with the story.
That is what we are here for, Chow! Plus, I love it when people love a drama as much as I do 😘
Thanks so much V! Aaahhh the feels! The quiet way they express their love and I feel it so much more with the OST, the prose and the poetry. The kiss made me soft teehee. I just hope their love overcomes what I think is his fear of abandonment and something bad happening when a person is too happy.
So many feels!!!! I love what you said, Jjuna. I love the quiet way they express their feelings as well. But yes, they might have an obstacle to come through soon. And I think you are right, fear of abandonment might be really high up there on the list.
So, ES could not verbalize that he liked HW, but he made up for that with his actions. What a KISS scene. I have replayed the last 5 minutes of that episode a few times now.
Who is the apparetion, the woman, Jin Ho ? Does this have anything to do with his mysterious disappearance?
having to wait for 5 days till episode 9…..
I think it might be his mother! Maybe he is adopted?
