Future Choice Falls to No. 3 in Ratings for 2nd Episode

“Future Choice” Falls to No. 3 in Ratings for 2nd EpisodeKBS 2TV’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Future Choice” has fallen to third place in ratings amongst shows in the same time slot. The drama saw a smooth start, placing second in the ratings race on Monday with ratings of 9.7%.

The second episode of “Future Choice” broadcast on October 15 had a nationwide rating of 8.6%, according to a Nielsen Korea ratings report on October 16. This was a slight drop of 1.1% points from the first broadcast, causing the drama to drop to third place.

Also in the same timeslot were SBS’ “Suspicious Housekeeper” retaining first place with 11.1% and MBC’s “Goddess of Fire, Jung-yi” airing back-to-back episodes with 9.0% and 8.0% ratings.

With a mere 0.4% difference in ratings between third placed “Future Choice” and MBC’s “Goddess of Fire, Jung-yi,” we are likely to see keen competition for the number two spot.

The third episode of “Future Choice” saw Kim Shin (played by Lee Dong Gun) and Na Mi Rae (Yoon Eun Hye) become colleagues and marked the start of their ill-fated relationship. Audiences are sure to be watching to see how their relationship unfolds.

SBS Entertainment Show "Running Man" Episode 238 Recap

SBS Entertainment Show Running Man Episode 238 Recap

We open at the SBS building, where we waste no time in meeting today’s guests aka our water fairies: actresses Kim Seo-hyung (A New Leaf, Empress Ki) and Ye Ji-won(Cantabile Tomorrow). Seo-hyung immediately brings on the laughs by striking a hilariously confident pose without saying a word. Ha, just take a look at that expression.

Ji-won also happens to be Jae-suk’s college classmate, though tries to avoid the same-year association by greeting Jae-suk as “oppa.” Then she momentarily forgets herself a second later when saying that “Jae-suk-ie” is the most popular alumnus in their year.

This week’s Water Fairy Race is to promote and create awareness of the upcoming 7th World Water Forum taking place in Daegu in April. The team breakdown is as follows: Gray (Seo-hyung, Jong-kook, Haha), Blue (Ji-won, Jae-suk, Kwang-soo) and Black (Ji-hyo, Suk-jin, Gary).

The goal is simple: our teams will take their “magical” water bottles and use it to clean the dirty water waiting for them at the finish line. Additionally, the teams will take two forms of transportation to get to Daegu.

Although Ji-hyoCo. have the latest departure time, their express bus and taxi combination appears better than the others. For instance, Seo-hyung’s team has to first take a plane down to Busan and another bus back up to Daegu. Jae-suk: “You might as well have told them to go to Jeju Island instead!

But then Ji-won and her boys don’t have it much better either: they must get off at one of the first two stops on the KTX, then take the bus the rest of the way. Ji-won: “We’ll ride there on bicycles.”

Seo-hyung is in a cheery mood in the van with her younger teammates. Married man Haha takes it upon himself to play matchmaker again, apologizing for sitting in between her and Jong-kook. When he suggests that they hold hands behind him, Seo-hyung says she’ll do it on her own, thank you very much. Hehe.

All Seo-hyung has to do is knock at Jong-kook’s heart, Haha continues. “Just say that you like him three times.” When Jong-kook tries to be polite by saying that Seo-hyung might like a different type of guy, she whips back, “Are you trying to be picky about types at your age?” Touché.

Ji-won serenades her teammates in the van with the French tune “Paroles Paroles.” It’s not long until the guys start singing along, and when she falls back to using banmal with Jae-suk, he reminds her that she called him “oppa” earlier.

They run into the train station and board the train with less than six minutes to spare. Once they find out that they’ve boarded a train headed for Busan, Ji-won is the only one excited about it: “Doesn’t that mean we get to see the ocean?” But thankfully getting off at the second stop Daejeon should put them in a good position.

Over at Gimpo airport, Jong-kook deduces that the team who has the most “magical” water in Daegu will have the advantage. A little while later, Ji-hyoCo. are satisfied that their bus ride will be a straight shot to Daegu.

On the train, Ji-won says she feels a little embarrassed about being called her given name Yoo-jung. I love how she keeps forgetting to address Jae-suk as “oppa,” even though she’s the one who started the running joke.

She then explains that Jae-suk was already a celebrity during their college days thanks to his appearance in a comedian contest back then. But she keeps tripping up over her words today, like calling the “Gag Contest” as “Gag Concert.”

Over lunch, after Jae-suk identifies that Kwang-soo’s ideal type of girl is cutesy and doll-like, Ji-won whispers that in their university days, Jae-suk used to like stick thin women. Ji-won isn’t at all shy about divulging tidbits about Jae-suk, like how she held onto the misconception for yeeearrrrsss that Jae-suk and singer Ha Soo-bin had dated in the past.

At the time, Ji-won had convinced herself that Jae-suk must’ve been a chaebol if he was dating someone as pretty as Soo-bin. Ji-won even thought that the van taking Soo-bin around was Jae-suk’s car. Then she admits that there weren’t any especially handsome fellows in their year. Jae-suk: “Because I was in the top three.”

After arriving in Busan, Seo-hyung and her boys board a bus, where she asks how Jong-kook’s speaking and singing voices could be so different. She hints that it’d be great if her boyfriend was a great singer (nudge), then asks if he likes it when the lady makes him laugh (nudge nudge).

When Jong-kook says he likes it, she gets half-annoyed that he keeps calling her noona. Hahaha. Meanwhile a traffic accident up ahead forces our express bus crew to take a detour, which might put them behind the other teams.

After Ji-won and her boys are barred from taking a taxi to the Daejeon terminal, they take a bus instead. There’s a mission waiting for them when they arrive: tip 10 soda cans so that they stand on their sides. Kwang-soo resorts to trying to smash a side in, but I have this awful feeling that it’s going to burst…

… and then it does. HA. His next brilliant idea is to try leaning the cans against one another, but that idea is quickly shot down too. Kwang-soo’s third idea is to use chewed gum as a stand, but he’s told that the cans must lean on their own.

A bystander suggests that the team consume some of the drink, then try to find a center of balance. So the trio enlists the bystanders’ help in drinking the soda, and when Kwang-soo tips the can… it stays up. Eureka!

At the Busan bus terminal, our team must transfer five onion ring chips in under a minute in order to get on the bus. The first attempt is a dud thanks to Seo-hyung and Haha trying to hook under the onion chip, but a switcharoo speeds them up enough to succeed.

Ji-hyo and her boys have less than 15 minutes to complete their mission at a rest stop. Trying to make their hard-boiled eggs stand on their own only makes them annoyed until Suk-jin’s does… and then falls over.

Things start to look bleak when the bus gives a five-minute warning, but then one by one, all three eggs are left standing.

Despite that detour, Ji-hyo and her boys are the first to arrive at the park in Daegu. Here they must successfully complete a mission to grab the car keys and drive to the final mission location. Should they fail, they’ll need to dump 100 mL of water.

Ji-hyo and her boys’ faces fall just at listening to the instructions: travel down the mat by swinging Ji-hyo around their waists and “ring” the gong with her head. Oh, all within 30 seconds. This game has failure written all over it.

As expected, Gary and Suk-jin struggle to carry out the mission. Ji-won and her boys must complete a baton relay wearing flippers within 15 seconds, which means each of them need to run around the mat in five seconds or less. And in order to do that, Jae-suk says he needs to take off his pants.

So Jae-suk strips down right then and there, arguing all the while that track and field athletes wear these because they cut down on air resistance. Gary: “Those athletes wear another layer on top of those!”

Next thing we know, Kwang-soo starts stripping too, insisting that he’s wearing super-short shorts. Dude, anyone can tell that those are boxer briefs. Gary chimes in, “Does ‘Calvin Klein’ count as an athletics brand?”

It looks like those leggings really do help as Jae-suk whips around the mat pretty speedily. So do Kwang-soo and Ji-won, but they fail by 1.31 seconds. Ji-won: “What happened? You guys stripped down, too! You may as well have kept your pants on.”

All of these missions sound sort of possible if only there wasn’t such a short time limit. But 10 seconds is all Seo-hyung and her boys have to traverse down to the finish line in a human pyramid format. When Jae-suk says he heard that Seo-hyung’s been flirting with Jong-kook all day, she smiles and says it’s no big deal. Lol.

Pairing Seo-hyung’s forwardness with Jong-kook’s hesitance towards those flirtatious advances, Ji-won starts her serenade on her guitar. As soon as the whistle blows, however, Seo-hyung slips over to Jong-kook’s back, which the group uses as joke fodder for her preference for Jong-kook.

When Seo-hyung’s team chooses the game Ji-hyo and her boys failed earlier, Gary asks if Jong-kook can’t swing Seo-hyung down the mat on his own. Jong-kook and Haha do a better job at this swing-and-pass system, though they stay in place rather than move down the mat.

That is, until the final swing and Seo-hyung yelps as she falls. Frustrated, she goes to kick Haha, and now their team is down 200 mL. Next, Ji-hyo’s team must run around the mat in ten seconds while holding soda cans between their cheeks. When Kwang-soo blocks their way by bending down and pretend to tie his shoe, the trio simply knocks him over.

Everyone is willing to play a little dirty if the staff is willing to give a green light. But that’s a no, and Ji-hyo’s team gets a do-over. And this time, they succeed and head out.

The two remaining teams face off in the 15 second flippers race. Jae-suk loses a flipper right away, which puts a pause button on the race. Seo-hyung is none to happy about the interruption, lost flipper be damned.

But when Seo-hyung slips and falls right before the finish line, her team calls for a time-out. Both teams start arguing about the rules of the game and whether Seo-hyung was actually hurt or not. For some reason, Ji-won asks Jong-kook to show off some taekwondo moves to er, appease her somehow? She’s lost me.

In any case, the teams get ready for a final showdown. And when Taek PD says the production crew will just sit back and watch, the teams cry out that the staff MUST intervene and set appropriate boundaries.

This time, Kwang-soo pulls in first, and then Ji-won rallies her teammates to celebrate with the cancan dance. In the end, our water tally is as follows: Black (800 mL), Blue (700mL), and Gray (600 mL).

Upon arriving at the final mission location, Gary relays the instructions to his teammates: collect at least one liter of “magical” water to clean the dirty water. And to do that, they’ll need to swipe some water from the other teams.

Kwang-soo notices that the Black Team keeps in step with their team, not believing that they’re still looking to find what they need to do here. Ji-won catches on that the others are trying to steal their water and confirms her suspicions when she reads the mission card on the roof.

Kwang-soo and Jae-suk notice that Jong-kook’s gone missing and are thus hesitant about heading downstairs. Kwang-soo takes one for the team and gives chase, only to be led right into the Tiger’s lair.

After insisting that he’s empty-handed, Kwang-soo yells loudly in warning to his teammates. They leave him for Jong-kook and crew to deal with him. Seeing Kwang-soo pinned down to the floor, Seo-hyung asks, “Doesn’t this [position] usually mean that he’s out?”

The Black Team decides to hide Ji-hyo among the staff while the guys head out and check in on her every five minutes. She grows nervous when the Gray Team shows up a minute later, and Jong-kook also parks himself a seat next to the staff.

Downstairs, Ji-won threatens to drop her water bottle if Gary draws any closer. And when he does, she chucks it down and everyone rushes down the stairs. It’s Gary who picks it up first; he calls for Suk-jin… who is still on his way down in the elevator. LOL.

Gary chucks the bottle away, which gets picked up by Kwang-soo, who makes a safe pass to Jae-suk. Up to the roof everyone goes, and Kwang-soo walks into the pool, threatening to pour out his bottle.

He does moments later, much to Jae-suk’s ire. Seo-hyung notices that Ji-hyo’s missing too, then Suk-jin volunteers to confront Kwang-soo in the water.

Kwang-soo runs back inside, taking the group with him. And in the meantime, Ji-hyo feels a pair of eyes on her: Jong-kook. She runs out, and her appearance alerts the others. Jong-kook looks on as the others try wrenching the bottle away from her.

Once Haha steals it, Jong-kook finally makes his move and enters the safe zone with both bottles. The Gray Team pours and mixes the water in, and just like magic, the liquid inside turns clear.

The victors are awarded gold rings for their Water Race win, to which the others joke that Jong-kook and Seo-hyung can use them as couple rings. And because no victory is complete without Seo-hyung giving us one last laugh, she strikes the same confident pose.

tvN Drama "Superdaddy Yeol" Episode 2 Recap

tvN Drama Superdaddy Yeol Episode 2 Recap

Yeol collapses while working out, and team doctor Mi-rae comes running. She panics, when he opens his eyes and asks her what she thinks of him as a man. “Let’s date,” he says, coming closer, as if for a kiss. She closes her eyes.

…and wakes up in a hospital bed. We’ve rewound a bit, and her doctor colleague tells her she was brought in for fainting. Mi-rae is relieved that she covered for her with the directors, and makes to leave. But the doctor tells her it’s not from overwork — preliminary scans show a biliary tumor (i.e. gall bladder and bile ducts, also affecting the liver). Mi-rae looks at the doctor in surprise.

We catch up to the present, and Yeol looks for Sa-rang. He’s about to chuck the kitbag when he spots her in a taxi. Mi-rae turns around at the sound of his voice. Yeol narrates in voiceover that that the chance of meeting an ex again is 82%, but the chance of it working out again is only 3%. I want to know where he’s getting these numbers…

He runs alongside the taxi, bag in hand, and his narration continues that the chance of staying together for life is 0.1%. Mi-rae watches his diminishing figure in her wing-mirror, and the irony has to be deliberate, “objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.” Aren’t they just. He finishes that there are some couples who challenge the numbers to the end, “Because love isn’t a probability, it’s a miracle.”

Mi-rae doesn’t quite believe her eyes, and asks her daughter if she met anyone. Sa-rang is mad at mom, and tells her she met a kidnapper-style baseball ajusshi, which more or less confirms her fears.

When they get home, they’re met by Mi-rae’s hoobae admirer, Dr. SHIN WOO-HYUK, whom Sa-rang called when she couldn’t get her mom. Sa-rang signals to him to put the moves on mom. They exchange winks and low-fives, and she leaves them to it.

Woo-hyuk tries to invite himself in for ramyun, or at the very least coffee. Aw, you’re going to be this hapless all show, aren’t you?

Mi-rae follows her daughter up, but Sa-rang shuts her door in her face. She thinks of Sa-rang’s tearful confession about wanting a dad who’ll be there for her when mom isn’t. Her mind goes back to the running figure, but she shakes it off — lots of people must look like him. Her diagnosis weighs on her. Just one year to live?

The next morning, Yeol ignores his calls to sleep more. The machine takes Coach Bang’s message, to turn up at the disciplinary hearing tomorrow. He warns Yeol that if he gets fired now, it could spell the end of his coaching career.

Out of bed, Yeol picks up an old record, and handwritten across the front is the message, “You’re my meaning, I’m your meaning.” He scoffs at it, but is unable to throw it away. A different record sees him bopping to the fridge, and it’s Coke for breakfast in a bachelor’s world! But he’s interrupted by buddy and colleague SHIK SANG-HAE (Choi Dae-chul).

The two men go shopping. Sang-hae sobs pitifully about his over-jealous wife, while Yeol points out that he has been playing around. Sang-hae envies Yeol’s solo life, but is then touched by the sight of a happy family.

From his extremely negative reaction, Sang-hae wonders if he’s still stuck on Mi-rae. But Yeol says she’s not even in his dreams anymore. He used to wonder how he would react to meeting her again, and now he thinks he’d just walk right past without even recognizing her.

Stuck in solid traffic, Mi-rae sees happy couples and families all around her. She’s still haunted by Sa-rang’s wish for a father, and her patient’s desperation to protect her child.

A horn breaks her contemplations, and the surprise makes her rear-end another car. The driver (cameo by Heo Jung-min, lol) asks if she’s okay, but his nice-guy front cracks in two seconds. He yells his head off, dissing her driving skills: “If you drive like this, you’ll die, I’ll die, everyone in the whole damn world will die!”

She stares at him wide-eyed. “If I drive nicely, will you let me live a long time?” she asks. Tearfully, she tells the stranger that she’s going to die. She’s only got a year to live, can he save her? She sobs inconsolably, while the man desperately tries to escape.

Mi-rae walks right past Dr. Choi in the hospital, completely out of it. He asks why she vanished the night before, and tells her the new center’s head is going to be picked soon, so she should go for it with life-or-death fervor — it’s that important. His words “life or death” catch her, and she wants another shot at the aborted party.

At the noraebang again, the lecherous elder cozies up to her, plying her with sympathy and drinks. He puts his hand on her thigh and slimes about how lonely she must be as a single mom.

She picks up his hand and puts it to her heart — he wants to touch her there, right? “You dirty, perverted asshole,” she says with a sweet smile. She twists his arm and dashes the drink in his face, and finishes with her foot at his neck.

Dr. Choi is agape. He told her it was as important as life and death, she yells at him, but she’d have to live to find out if that’s true. She is mad, she screams: “I’m mad for wanting to live! I don’t want to die!”

…and comes back to herself, mute and glassy-eyed, facing her seniors. Damn, it was too good to be true! She sings for them, and this time it goes smoothly.

Walking home, Mi-rae scrolls through her contacts list, empty of friends. Sa-rang texts her saying she could make up with mom depending on what her next year’s birthday present is. The message makes her sad. What if Sa-rang ends up alone like she did?

She ends up in some nearby batting cages, holding a bat with the look of someone who hasn’t picked one up for a while. Yeol’s voice comes back to her, telling her that the worst thing to do is go down and take your team with you. We flash back to a time when Yeol taught her how to swing a bat, and both of them look happy and relaxed. The best player, he says, is the self-sacrificial batter who strikes out but hits with runners scoring, because while he goesdown, he saves everyone else.

In the present, every ball she hits gives her satisfaction. But a tear slides down her cheek all the same. Sa-rang texts her that she wants a bike for her birthday. Another flashback shows mom teaching Sa-rang to ride. Sa-rang begs her not to let go, but mom does, and she crashes. Mi-rae realizes that what her daughter needs isn’t a bike, but a person to be with her.

The next day, the cancer patient tells Mi-rae she’s decided against chemo, and wants to spend that time with her family instead. She says that even if she’s gone, she wants her husband to protect their child. Mi-rae asks, what would happen if there were no father, no other family, only a mom?

The patient hesitantly replies that she’d have to make one somehow — a family she can trust — but having a dad would be best. Mi-rae hangs on her words.

Mom joins Sa-rang on the school racetrack, and runs alongside her. She asks her if she wants a dad for real – one she can eat, talk and play with. Sa-rang stops running. “A real dad?” she asks. Yes, says Mi-rae, “Mom will make a dad for you.”

Mi-rae finds Woo-hyuk at lunch and opens with, “You wanted to be Sa-rang’s daddy right?” and he spits out his mouthful of rice all over her in shock, lol. But does he want to be a dad or a husband? Puppy Shin says she’d come first, of course. Wrong answer! He’s out, she tells him.

Elsewhere, Dr. Hwang tells Hyun-woo that reporters are clamoring for dirt on his altercation with Yeol. He says it was no big deal, but it seems coach Ki-tae sicced them on to the story.

Ji-hye bursts in, and Dr. Hwang (her mom) rebukes her for being interested in the coach — a team doc’s priority is the player, and Yeol can look after himself. Ji-hye tells them that Yeol’s fate is to be decided tomorrow, and Hyun-woo looks troubled.

The doctors talk about who can do Hyun-woo’s surgery. Mom has someone in mind — someone Yeol also knows, but it’ll be hard. Hyun-woo offers to get rid of the reporters and clear Yeol’s name, but they have to get him the best doctor.

Over a meal, Sa-rang tells Woo-hyuk about her mom’s promise to make her a real-life dad. She pityingly tells him to have more confidence. It can only be him, she figures: Mom is too busy to have anyone else. With an awesome present and a proposal, he can win her, she says. But her mood dips when she spots her crush walk by, hand in hand with classmate Bo-mi.

“It’s hard, isn’t it? Love?” she declares. This girl, lol.

Dr. Hwang drops in on Mi-rae, and they meet for the first time in over ten years. She explains Hyun-woo’s surgery but Mi-rae is too busy. We find out that she used to be Dr. Hwang’s student in rehab medicine, before she switched to neurosurgery. Dr. Hwang admits it’s also to do with Yeol, who is the rehab coach.

Before she can say more, they’re interrupted by… Woo-hyuk ‘s proposal, which is all balloons and a banner that reads, “I want to be Sa-rang’s dad as much as I want to be your husband,” lol, I’m pretty sure that’s still the wrong answer. Dr. Hwang notes Mi-rae now has a kid.

Mi-rae marches up to him and kicks him in the shins, which brings him to his knees. Catching her foot mid-swing on the next kick, he puts some pretty shoes on her (no! Don’t you know you’re not meant to give a woman you like shoes?). Before he can confess (again), he gets one in the nuts, and rolls on the ground, crying. Kicking the shoes off, Mi-rae warns him not to propose again.

She runs back for Dr. Hwang, but she’s gone. In her place is a newspaper bearing Yeol’s assault story, and a note in which the doc observes that Mi-rae looks ill, and that she should rest. “Life is shorter than you think,” it finishes.

Meanwhile, Yeol isn’t faring well at team practice. The players walk out when he arrives, and buddy Sang-hae gives him the news that until the committee decides his fate, he’s off the job.

Ki-tae takes over, undermining Yeol and his whole approach with every word. Yeol insists he’s still rehab coach until tomorrow at least, and these are his kids. Ki-tae sneers and instructs the assembled players vote with their feet — if they’re Yeol’s kids, then to get in line behind him.

A long moment passes, and one or two players twitch, but Yeol stops the farce. He tells Ki-tae to have it. Rather than put his injured players in an awkward position, he walks out. Sang-hae is disappointed in the players, and follows Yeol.

From a distance, Mi-rae watches them go, thinking how he hasn’t changed.

Over dinner, Sang-hae laughs his head off about how not one player supported Yeol, and then (belatedly) curses their lack of loyalty.

Ji-hye crashes their meal, asking Yeol if he’s going to the hearing tomorrow. Sang-hae helpfully says he’s fired regardless. Yeol more or less agrees, comparing himself to a decrepit car, ready for the scrapheap, rather than a magical fixer of other cars.

He tells them what Hyun-woo said about him being wrapped up in his own pain, and so they couldn’t trust him. Ji-hye and Sang-hae both disagree — they trust him. They’re going to help plead his case tomorrow, but Yeol’s tired of it and just wants to quit. Coach Bang texts him the meeting time — 1pm tomorrow.

Ji-hye follows him out. I wonder how many times she’s confessed to him. By now, she can recite his script of objections, and imitates him: He wants to be alone and doesn’t want to take responsibility for anyone else. Not being in a position to look after anyone, he’s sworn off marriage and kids. Aw, I like her! Yeol nods, struck dumb.

So that’s why she wants to start off just dating, Ji-hye says, and encourages him to go for it so he doesn’t have regrets. But Yeol shrugs that he won’t regret it, and walks off. Sang-hae congratulates her on her millionth out, and tells her she should give up. She sighs that she knows he’s still stuck on his first love or whatever.

Yeol is convinced he’s being followed home, but can’t see anyone. From behind a pillar, Mi-rae watches him go inside. She wonders why he was alone all this time, but at the same time, she’s relieved.

A flashback takes us to when she told him she was going abroad. But what about them, he asks. “Game over,” she shouts, because he won’t even hold on to her and beg. Furious himself, he rips off a chain with a pitcher’s glove pendant and throws it at her feet. Even more hurt, she stalks out.

Yeol gets in to find his dad snoring on the couch. Coach Bang’s words come back to him, about how he’d look after his dad without a job, and what losing tomorrow could mean for his future prospects.

Woo-hyuk is waiting again when Mi-rae gets home. This time, he boldly swoops in for a kiss, but Mi-rae kicks him again before he can land it. Poor hapless hoobae. Frustrated, he asks why it can’t be him — there’s someone else, isn’t there? Whether there is or not, he isn’t the one, she tells him. He’s better off being a doctor. Dejected but not defeated, he promises not to give up on her.

By the time Yeol wakes up the next day, it’s already 12.30. Run, Yeol, run!

Sa-rang can’t make sense of Woo-hyuk ‘s rejection — it’s not as if a dad she’s never had is going to suddenly appear, after all. She exhales a long sigh, “Ah! I want to get married, too.” Just then, she spots a group of high school girls pushing around her crush.

Yeol rounds a corner in his car. Swerving to avoid a sudden cyclist, he ends up mounted on the pavement with a flat. Frustrated, he starts walking, and immediately passes the high school girls. He doesn’t notice it’s pint-sized warrior Sa-rang brawling with them, and walks on, shaking his head.

Sa-rang spots him, and calls out, “Dad!” She runs and throws her arms around him. He’s mystified, and she beseeches him with big eyes. Loudly, she orders him to tell the girls off. They’re dead, she tells them fiercely. Yeol sorta waves at them, and half-heartedly tells them to work hard. After they go, she limps over to crush-boy.

Dr. Hwang and Ji-hye worry about Yeol’s hearing, and are suddenly met by Mi-rae.

Speaking privately in her office, Dr. Hwang remembers that Mi-rae used to be the attending physician for the team’s president. Mi-rae agrees to do the surgery, on one condition.

Yeol applies a makeshift splint to Sa-rang’s injured ankle. He criticizes her for jumping into other people’s fights, and bets she’s a bad student. Riled by his assumptions, she tells him to get lost. But he suddenly notices the time and runs.

Sa-rang shakes her head, unimpressed. She notices he’s left behind his keys. The pitcher’s glove pendant is attached to them, old and chipped.

In Yeol’s hearing, Coach Bang fights his case, but Ki-tae points out that Yeol’s absence shows how much he cares. He asks the other coaches if any of them are against his firing, and even Sang-hae backs down. The official is about to pass the verdict when he gets a call from the president.

Everyone is on the way out when Yeol finally arrives. They pass in silence, and Yeol assumes the worst until Sang-hae congratulates him for surviving (no thanks to you!). Ki-tae derides him for using connections, but even with a three-month probation, Yeol’s thrilled by his reprieve.

Coach Bang explains that he has to take remedial classes in the three months, and he’ll get hired back if he does well. He tells him that the person who persuaded the president will also be his tutor.

Dr. Hwang arrives with Mi-rae. Yeol stares. “You…” he says. She wasn’t sure he’d recognize her, she laughs, and holds out her hand. He realizes she was the one who intervened on his behalf. Furious, he quits on the spot, not caring if they fire him or sue him. “If it’s this woman, I’m never doing anything!” he vows.

He marches out into the rain, the voiceover of his statistics of exes meeting, working out, and staying together plays again, while we get glimpses of his dad, Sa-rang, Ki-tae and Woo-hyuk, each occupied in their own concerns.

Yeol angrily growls to himself that Mi-rae did the same thing ten years ago, selfishly coming and going as she pleased.

But she followed him out, and now Mi-rae calls out to him. “Let’s get married,” she says. “Be my daughter’s father.”

tvN Drama "Ho-gu's Love" Episode 12 Recap

tvN Drama Ho-gu's Love Episode 12 Recap

Surprised at finding Kang-chul leaning over Ho-gu for a kiss, she backs into the wall, making enough sound to catch Kang-chul’s attention. He covers up the near-kiss by slapping Ho-gu on the cheeks, telling him to wake up and go home.

When Gong-mi meets Ho-kyung for dinner with Chung-jae and Tae-hee, and Gong-mi and Tae-hee immediately recognize each other from when he and Ho-gu barged into the office. He pulls her aside, making her promise not to tell Ho-kyung about their visit or the baby.

Ho-kyung notes that they seem to have a connection, and apologizes to Chung-jae because she had originally intended to set him up with Gong-mi instead. But Chung-jae is offended that Ho-kyung, who he has a crush on, would be setting him up with girls. Ho-kyung: “What, should I be introducing you to boys instead?”

A phone call from Kang-chul quickly distracts her. He wants to know if there’s another way that someone could find out if he’s gay that doesn’t involve kissing the guy that makes his heart flutter. Ho-kyung offers to bring all her research and information to a lunch date tomorrow, and after Kang-chul agrees, he wonders why it feels like he’s been lured into a trap.

Ho-gu is reluctant to leave the baby and Do-hee has to practically shove him out the door. But they get distracted by all of Kang-chul’s trophies. Do-hee and Ho-gu are impressed that Kang-chul climbed Mt. Everest last year, and the dates on the certificate make Ho-gu realize that he would have been climbing Mt. Everest around the same time Do-hee got pregnant.

She just rolls her eyes, reminding him she’s already told him that Kang-chul isn’t the father, but with the photographic evidence of Kang-chul standing at base camp, Ho-gu starts to actually believe it.

Despite Do-hee and Kang-chul’s protests, Ho-gu still tries to find a way to cling his belief that Kang-chul is the father (even suggesting that Do-hee went to Everest with him). He can’t get over the conversation he overheard in the hospital, when he thought they were talking about Kang-chul not using condoms.

Do-hee has no idea what he’s talking about, but Kang-chul looks a little shifty as he orders Ho-gu to go home. Ho-gu refuses, and when Kang-chul reminds him yet again that he’s not the father, Ho-gu says that’s why he can’t go home — he can’t leave Do-hee alone with another man.

In a happy voice, he says to himself: “My name is Ho-gu. Kang Ho-gu.”

After they finally convince Ho-gu to leave, Kang-chul wonders how they’ll keep the real father a secret. Do-hee begs him not to tell Ho-gu the truth, and Kang-chul reassures her he won’t. After all, he’s not a high-priced lawyer for nothin’ — he knows how to keep client confidentiality.

The next morning, Ho-gu makes an important decision — a hair-cut. As the barber snips off those adorable curls, he says that Ho-gu must be about to confess to a women. Ho-gu, very seriously, answers “yes.”

Sporting his new ‘do, he marches with purpose to Kang-chul’s apartment building. He’s determined to ask about Do-hee’s relationship with Kang-chul and the baby-daddy — as Geum-dong’s “hyung” and the fact he was her guardian in the hospital, he has the right to know. But when he sees Do-hee walking to the bus stop, he quietly follows her.

Unnoticed, he gets off at the same stop as her, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. He continues to follow her to a cemetery, where she greets an older couple, and it’s apparent that they’re all there for a memorial.

Ho-gu returns to Kang-chul’s apartment, where an annoyed Coach is surrounded by dirty diapers as he struggles to get a fresh diaper on Geum-dong. Ho-gu quickly takes over, asking about Kang-chul and Do-hee. They’ve gone to meet potential adoptive parents.

Aw, Kang-chul is the one who interviews them while Do-hee hides a few tables away, listening in. She shakes her head when Kang-chul asks her about them, but it’s the last couple they had lined up as Geum-dong’s prospective parents. He sighs that they’ll have to find another place to look, as well as figure out more selective criteria.

Curious, Do-hee asks him why he’s working so hard to help her. He tells her it’s because she promised him a huge fee when hired him as the lawyer to oversee Geum-dong’s adoption. He swears it’s not because he has any feelings for her, it’s just…

Do-hee asks if it’s because he’s sorry because he didn’t use “that thing” originally. Hesitating, Kang-chul quietly admits that if he had filed a complaint for her, it would have made her life even more difficult. She confesses she really resented him because of it, but the more she thinks about it, the more she agrees with him. Especially for Geum-dong’s sake.

Kang-chul is back to business when he reminds her not to forget to pay him for his services, and after he leaves, Do-hee grumbles that a woman is about to cry and all he can do is leave: “It’s no wonder he can’t get a date.”

Ho-gu watches over the sleeping Geum-dong and remembers earlier in the morning, when he saw Do-hee at the cemetery. He had greeted the other couple as they waited at the bus stopm (sans Do-hee), and the woman had explained that Do-hee and their deceased child were close friends.

He wonders if their son was the baby’s father who died in an accident, since it would make sense — both why she should seek out Kang-chul for legal advice as well as her statement that both she and the baby’s father made a mistake. Not to mention her breakdown, wondering if she’d ever be able to love again.

Even so, Ho-gu can’t back down from his purpose today. He came to ask her some important questions (and even cut his hair!). Kang-chul and Do-hee arrive home, and pfffft, when Kang-chul sees Ho-gu, he sighs that they really need to change the passcode.

When Do-hee notes that Ho-gu got a haircut, he screws up the courage to tell her why he got it cut — because it’s a hindrance when taking care of babies. Buhhh? Holding out the “babysitter needed” notice Kang-chul had posted on the apartment community board, he tells them that he’s Geum-dong’s new babysitter.

Do-hee pulls him aside, demanding to know if he’s being serious. Ho-gu swears he is, and Do-hee asks if he’s really not curious about the father or how Kang-chul is involved. Ho-gu admits that it doesn’t matter to him anymore. All he cares about is Geum-dong.

Even if she broke off the potential relationship she might have had with him, he asks Do-hee to at least promise not to break apart the relationship he could have with Geum-dong. They agree to write up a contract that will allow him to babysit and keep their relationship professional.

The doorbell rings, and Kang-chul answers it, annoyed that the video screen isn’t working so he can’t see who’s at the door. Surprise! It’s Ho-kyung (with her hand over the camera). She’s there to give him the information he’d asked for last night.

Kang-chul’s trying to hustle Ho-kyung out the door, and she teases him that he must be hiding a girl when suddenly Do-hee appears. Ho-kyung is ready to face-off and defend her turf when Ho-gu arrives with the baby. The twins are surprised to see each other, and Ho-kyung is even more shocked to see the baby. Do-hee cooly tells Ho-kyung that, yes, it’sher baby.

The men can sense the tension as they slowly back away, and Kang-chul tries to explain that it’s not his baby. But Ho-kyung curses him out as she kicks him in the face, giving him a bloody nose and sending him sprawling on the sofa.

Ho-gu tends to the dazed Kang-chul as a furious Ho-kyung tries to talk sense into Ho-gu (while Do-hee once again insists that Kang-chul isn’t the father — this assumption seems to run in the family). She wants to know why her brother is caring for a baby that isn’t his, especially when he said his fling with Do-hee had ended. So why is he still here — is he dating Kang-chul, or what?

When Ho-gu realizes how close his face is to Kang-chul’s, he slooooowly slides away. But Ho-kyung is putting together all the clues and figuring out why the atmosphere is so weird — is the story Kang-chul told her about his client actually his? Is Kang-chul gay? Is thatwhy Ho-gu is here with him?

Kang-chul scrambles up, insisting that’s not it, and sputters out that Ho-gu is actually the babysitter. Congrats, Ho-gu — you’ve officially got the job.

Ho-kyung follows Ho-gu home, trying to talk sense into him. How can he be taking care of a baby when he also has be working on the webtoon? He tries to bribe her to go along with it (and not tell Mom, heh) by promising her he’ll help her get in with Kang-chul’s good graces, but when that doesn’t work, he threatens to show Kang-chul her pre-cosmetic surgery pictures, instead.

Thus Ho-gu begins his career as a babysitter. During the day, while Do-hee trains, he watches Geum-dong. When Do-hee returns in the evening, she takes care of the baby while Ho-gu works on the webtoon. In the meantime, Kang-chul interviews potential adoptive parents (and vainly tries to tolerate a messy baby in his apartment).

Even Ho-kyung gets in the act, stopping by to visit Kang-chul but getting put on baby duty so Ho-gu can do some chores. When Do-hee returns home, she finds Ho-kyung napping next to Geum-dong. She warns Do-hee not to seduce her brother. This is just another source of charity for the kind of guy who takes in all the neighborhood stray cats.

Do-hee says that it’s not about her, but about Geum-dong. When Do-hee admits that she’s using Ho-gu’s goodwill to have someone take care of her baby, Ho-kyung marvels that Do-hee isn’t the “nation’s mermaid,” but rather the “nation’s bitch.”

But Ho-kyung’s found her match in Do-hee, who pointedly reminds her that Ho-kyung’s been speaking informally to her when she’s supposed to be Do-hee’s dongsaeng. Ho-kyung scoffs, saying that Do-hee shouldn’t be so presumptuous — if she keeps acting like that, she’ll be abandoned by the baby’s real father.

Do-hee gives her the death glare as she asks if Ho-kyung knows who the father is. Ho-kyung gulps and says she doesn’t, then smiles, adding honorifics for her “unni.”

When they meet in the elevator, Kang-chul pitches a fit that Ho-gu’s wearing the wrong cleaning gloves to take out the trash. But Ho-gu just ignores him and as they ride up together, instad asking if Do-hee sought Kang-chul because the baby’s father died in an accident.

As a lawyer, Kang-chul can’t answer that. But as a friend, he admits that Do-hee came to him, asking for help, but he turned his back on her. He swears he’d do the same again, though, even though he knows he’d be called a selfish bastard.

But Ho-gu admires him because Do-hee considered Kang-chul someone dependable enough to ask for help, and is relieved that Kang-chul was her ex-boyfriend. Kang-chul is just amazed that Ho-gu found out about the accident.

Ho-gu’s mother intercepts a delivery for Ho-gu, surprised that it contains baby diapers. She tracks him down to Kang-chul’s apartment, where Professor Mok is also there to see her son. The women side-eye each other, since their style is so opposite — Ho-gu’s mother with her colorful, bohemian ensemble, and Professor Mok with her subdued, fashionable outfit.

But both women are equally astonished to see Do-hee leave the apartment with Geum-dong, and they retreat to a coffee shop to get over the shock. Hahahaha! The moms think their children are dating and had a secret kid together, as they assume Do-hee must be the other’s daughter. Ho-gu’s mom is excited to call each other in-laws while Professor Mok bursts into tears.

Kang-chul is meeting with another national athlete from Do-hee’s company, NO KYUNG-WOO (Kim Hyun-joon), who wants to sue whomever started the rumor that he’s gay. When Kang-chul tells him it seems pointless to sue for such a minor thing, Gong-mi pipes up that in many Korean companies, if it’s found out that you’re gay, you automatically become an outcast, potentially ruining your career and reputation.

Kyung-woo adds that’s why the company told him to seek out Kang-chul — they said he’s the best in this field. Kang-chul, having become progressively anxious throughout the meeting, suddenly demands to know who told Kyung-woo that he’s the “gay expert.” But Kyung-woo just meant that Kang-chul is the best at defamation cases.

Ho-kyung’s gives Kang-chul documents to help support Kyung-woo’s case, including an assessment for Kyung-woo to take to prove that he isn’t gay. She convinces Kang-chul to go with her for some drinks, and when he insists that he won’t drink alcohol, she pops open a bottle of soda for him.

But when the bottle cap hits him on the forehead the same way that “Ho-gu” had opened the bottle of beer back in high school, he begins to wonder. After Ho-kyung excuses herself to use the restroom, he reaches for the gay assessment test.

Do-hee meets with CEO Park, who has a new concept image to present to her — a sexy photo-shoot. Do-hee’s a little hesitant and CEO Park reassures her it shouldn’t be too awkward since she’ll be doing it with fellow swimmer, Kyung-woo. The sound of his name makes Do-hee even more determined not to do it. But CEO Park tells her that they can dispel all those childbirth rumors with this photo-shoot — it’s not a request, it’s an order.

At the restaurant, Kang-chul is totally drunk now, and he tipsily asks Ho-kyung why she likes him. He cutely tells her that she shouldn’t like him, though, because he’s… he lowers his voice… gay. She laughs it off, but he repeats it, yelling: “I’m gay! Gay!” until he passes out drunk at the table. She spots the crumpled up assessment next to him.

When Do-hee returns home, she sees Ho-gu to the door. But Ho-gu notices that she’s looking tired, and offers to hug her — when someone in his family is having a rough day, they give each other a hug, no questions asked. She agrees, and he comforts her, telling her she’s doing great, working hard to make money to pay for diapers.

She smiles as she hugs him back, telling him he’s also doing great, working hard to change those diapers. As he pulls away, she stares at him a moment, then… kiss!

Do-hee bids him good-night, and Ho-gu calmly walks out of the apartment, only to go all rubber-legged once the door closes. Awww, Do-hee also falls to her knees as she wonders what she just did. She spots the old sketchbook that Ho-gu gave her, and then she starts to cry as she remembers finding it and seeing the story of the girl who was a mermaid.

Ooohhhh, it turns out that Do-hee actually recognized Ho-gu on the street corner before he first saw her in his camera; that she immediately knew he wasn’t the waiter (aw, the smile she tries to hide when she sends him off for more chips is adorable); and when she walked away from him in the crosswalk, she’d sighed that he was as clueless as ever.

Do-hee clutches the sketchbook to her chest, and with a hankie over her eyes, cries as she remembers their night in Yeosu. At the sound of Geum-dong crying, too, she turns to comfort him. She’s still weeping as she apologizes to Geum-dong, telling him that she’ll pull herself together — she’d tried so hard to hold it in. But she breaks down, sobbing even harder after she admits that it’s her first love.

CEO Park is astonished to discover that Do-hee had the baby, wondering who Do-hee is dating. But her assistant says that Do-hee isn’t dating anyone — it was sexual assault. Ooof.

As Do-hee comforts her baby, she looks at the sketchbook and smiles. “My name is Ho-gu. Do Ho-gu.”

SBS Drama

SBS Drama "Hyde, Jekyll, Me" Episode 18 Recap

1

After dropping the bomb that she publicly outed Robin as Seo-jin’s pen name, Hana sits there waiting for Seo-jin to blow up at her.

He doesn’t, and though he seems shocked, he’s mostly amused. He sees this as an extension of what she secretly wants—both of them—and even thanks her for finding a good way for the three of them to be together.

He supposes that Robin was more upset, and she doesn’t deny it, but says that he’s being understanding. She’s still a little shocked at Seo-jin’s ease, and he just asks her to eat with him in honor of turning him into a webtoon artist overnight.

Chairman Dad gets himself all wound up in a tizzy about the news and chews out his minions, only to be told by his publicity team that this is the best thing that’s ever happened for them.

Dad doesn’t really understand what could be good about his son having a secret manhwa hobby (as if he’s not a famous published author), but the publicity team spells it out for him: If Seo-jin takes over Wonderland, he could be the next Walt Disney. You can practically see the dollar signs in Dad’s eyes.

They run with that, and cousin Seung-yeon fumes to have yet another evil plan backfire on him. Seriously, you’re more helpful for Seo-jin’s career than anyone—keep being terrible at your villainy!

Woo-jung bursts into tears as she reads the news about Robin being Seo-jin’s secret creative identity, and admits that she’d never have come up with the idea herself. She acknowledges Hana as a good manager AND girlfriend, finally letting go of Robin (never mind that you already have the adoring Eun-chang).

Hana watches curiously as Seo-jin goes about making breakfast, which is definitely a first. He catches her staring at him, so she asks about the necklace that he always used to wear. He tells her that he spent a lot of time trying out every single religion, and that necklace was some kind of talisman made to ward off evil.

She chuckles that he got taken, and he agrees that it did nothing—but it still made him feel better to wear it. He says that everyone seeking out religions is just looking for something to believe in, and she asks what it was that he wanted to believe. Seo-jin: “That I’m getting a little better, every day. That I’m becoming a better person, little by little.”

All it takes is one flashback to what an asshat he used to be, and she tells him that the talisman totally worked—he’s already a better person. Well that’s the understatement of the year.

He flashes a little grin at her, and then he’s interrupted by a call from an old college friend who wants to meet up. His phone is filled with messages from classmates, all guys that he’d lost touch with who are suddenly open and warm after learning that he moonlights as a webtoon artist.

He shows her the messages and they laugh at how his friends have all turned into ajusshis. Hana is the first to suddenly be aware of how close they are as they lean over the counter, and she steals a glance at Seo-jin’s smiling face while he isn’t looking.

Taking that look right there—that’s the mistake, because you can see how it makes her heart flutter and go off-kilter. It’s just a split second, and when Seo-jin looks up to meet her eyes, she’s flustered.

They’re saved by the bell when another classmate calls, and Seo-jin murmurs to himself that this is such a strange new experience, and wonders if he really had so many friends. Hana tells him that this is just the beginning, and lots of things will change, “For the three of us.” It’s the first time she’s said it like that, using Seo-jin’s words.

She says that they need to sit down with Secretary Kwon and go over a strategy for how to pass Robin and Seo-jin off as one guy. So they sit down to do just that, with both Seo-jin and Robin spliced into the same meeting as if they’re both there.

It’s kind of adorable how Robin raises his hand every time he wants to ask a question. They go over some basic rules about pretending to be one another, and Robin requests a chance to attend a webtoon convention, and declines any business-related meetings of any sort.

Seo-jin declines to share his cell phone password, though he wants Robin to share his, and even though I know he’s imagining Robin sitting there for his turn at this meeting, in the scene it looks like he’s being haughty right to his face.

Hana decides to just pass out pen and paper to both boys, and demands a list of 100 things that Robin wants to know about Seo-jin, and 200 things that Seo-jin wants to know about Robin.

Seo-jin complains about his load being double when he’s not even curious about one single thing, but Hana gripes that he would just fill the first list with bullshit, which is why he gets 200. Secretary Kwon barely stifles back a laugh and Seo-jin scowls.

Both boys spend the next day writing lists of questions (Seo-jin only comes up with four!) and then answering each other’s lists, and then later, Hana and Robin read over Seo-jin’s answers.

Robin is shocked at the number of favorite movies listed, and Hana says that Seo-jin is practically a movie critic these days. She realizes that his favorites are all stories about children, which gives her pause.

Seo-jin does it interview-style by asking Hana to read Robin’s answers aloud. He’s annoyed to hear that Robin’s stress-relief is just to sleep, which he interprets as dumping all stress onto Seo-jin to deal with.

He scoffs to hear that Robin’s favorite movies all feature Batman, Spiderman, or X-men, but is doubly pissy that Hana thinks it’s cute. He whines, “Is it cute for a grown man to watch the Batman series?” like he’s suddenly questioning her taste in men.

Seo-jin gets even grumblier when Robin answers that he’d like to try a triathlon: “Is he trying to kill me?” But he sighs that in all this time, he’s exchanged countless messages with Robin and tracked his every move… but he’s never known anything about him. Hana says that Robin admitted the same thing—that they’d shared a body for fifteen years but never bothered to learn what the other wanted in life.

Robin’s big webtoon convention rolls around, and he and Hana are both a bundle of nerves. He notices her shaking as she helps him get dressed and thinks she’s scared that he’ll make a mistake in public, but she says that it’s nervous excitement about going to their first official function as a couple.

They walk in holding hands, and are stunned when the elevator doors open onto a crowd of screaming fans all waiting for Robin. They’re so surprised that neither of them moves a muscle before the doors close on them, and Hana smiles up at Robin to reassure him before opening the doors again.

This time they smile and walk onto the red carpet, and another reassuring smile from Hana gets Robin to try and enjoy the moment, even if he is adorably stiff and awkward about all the sudden attention.

Woo-jung is subdued all evening, and she admits to her father that she’s happy for Robin, but she’s fantasized about being on his arm for this big moment for a very long time. Eun-chang doesn’t have to be told to know what’s going on in Woo-jung’s head, and he shows up unannounced with a scooter and two helmets.

He insists on going for a ride, and once they’re driving down the street, he tells her that they aren’t really going somewhere—he just knows she has stuff on her mind, and encourages her to shout it out while the engine is roaring and no one can hear her.

With some nudging, she finally shouts a congratulations and a goodbye to Robin, and then asks Eun-chang to shout too, so that she feels less embarrassed. Eun-chang complies with the sweetest declaration at the top of his lungs: “Be mine, Min Woo-jung! Come to me, Min Woo-jung! I’ll be good, Min Woo-jung!” That puts a smile on her face, and she tightens her grip around his waist.

Hana and Robin cuddle on the couch as she admires his trophy, and he asks if she thinks it would be okay for him to go on a radio talk show that invited him. She tells him to do it, and he’s amazed that he’ll get to leave further proof of his existence out in the world.

She asks him to draw something new so that they can go back to the convention next year and the year after that, and he takes the pen portion out of his award and hands it to her. He tells her that she’s his pen, and she squeezes his cheeks together until his lips pucker, and plants a kiss.

He traces his finger along her lip and then goes in for more kisses, and wraps his arms around her as they blissfully swoon between smoochies.

The next morning, Hana excitedly gives Seo-jin the play-by-play (well, minus the lip action), and though Seo-jin rats Robin out for having prepared an acceptance speech for the award he swore he didn’t expect to win, he seems genuinely happy for Robin.

Hana accompanies Robin to the radio show (cameo by K.Will), where he shares his thoughts on adulthood and how most people are still kids at heart and just struggling to catch up to their bodies and act as adult as they’re supposed to.

It’s a call-in radio show where they give dating advice, and when Seung-yeon spends his evening obsessively listening to the show instead of paying attention to his girlfriend, she finally picks up her phone to call in and complain that her boyfriend is the obsessive type and it’s starting to wear thin. Seung-yeon has even more reason to hate Robin when he advises her to break it off, keh.

Seo-jin wakes up the next morning with a splitting headache, and to Secretary Kwon’s surprise, he can quote verbatim the stuff that Robin said during the radio show. Ooooh, he’s getting Robin’s memories now?

Robin wakes up that night with a headache as well, but this time something new happens: He can’t remember his radio show, beyond arriving at the station with Hana. OH.

He goes to see Dr. Kang, and she says that Seo-jin came by earlier as well. She didn’t think much of Seo-jin’s condition because sharing memories wasn’t entirely new for them, but Robin’s memory loss is a significant change, and she asks what they’ve done differently lately.

After learning about how Robin and Seo-jin opened up to each other, Dr. Kang sees this latest development as a sign that they’re merging, and Robin is understandably alarmed at that. She tries to tell him that this means they’ll fuse personality traits and he wouldn’t be destroyed, but Robin’s face hardens as he says that melding IS destruction, for him.

He gets up to go but then asks in a quiet voice, “If I disappear, where do I go? Seo-jin’s body stays alive, but did I never have a soul or a body to begin with?”

Robin sits in the dark trying to process everything, and Hana pounds on his door, worried because he blew her off with a message that the was sick. After a while he finally comes out, and she hugs him in relief to know that he’s okay.

He lies that he’s just feeling overwhelmed with all the changes lately and needs a day to himself, and convinces her to go.

When Dr. Kang explains what’s going on to Seo-jin, he panics just as much and says that this would mean Robin’s destruction. She notes that they’re having the same reaction to the news, and Seo-jin tells her that they aren’t ready for this yet.

Seo-jin finds Hana looking a little lost, and she feels his forehead to make sure that he isn’t sick. She asks if something’s going on with Robin because he didn’t seem like himself and wanted to be alone, and Seo-jin covers for him, insisting that this is perfectly normal and that she’s the one overthinking things.

Robin spends that evening locked away in his room downstairs, and Hana sends texts pleading with him to come out and just let her see his face. He doesn’t reply, but says to himself that he can’t face her right now because he doesn’t know what he might say, or if he might even blame her.

Hana asks if she did something wrong and sheds a tear, and inside, Robin begins to cry as he says to himself, “I’m sorry. I’m not ready yet. How am I supposed to leave? How am I supposed to say goodbye to you?”

Seo-jin finds her asleep on the couch and tucks her in before making breakfast. When she wakes up, he presents her with seaweed soup because it’s her birthday, and she’s touched, though her mind is still swimming with thoughts of Robin.

She tells him that she waited all night, but Seo-jin already knows that Robin never came out. She asks with tears brimming in her eyes if Seo-jin is happy living this way, and if Robin is. Seo-jin tells her to eat first, and that he’ll make it so that she can ask Robin directly: “I can’t answer for Robin’s happiness or his life.”

Only when he wakes up that night, he’s still Seo-jin. Ruh-roh, is Robin hiding or is he fading?

Seo-jin jumps to block the door when Hana comes knocking, and in his panic he does his best Robin impersonation and buys some time. And then Woo-jung calls from the radio station to say that everything’s ready for his birthday surprise for Hana.

Seo-jin texts Secretary Kwon to sneak into his room quietly, and greets him pretending to be Robin. He asks if something doesn’t feel off, and Secretary Kwon practically jumps out of his skin when Seo-jin switches gears and tells him that Robin never woke up.

After telling the whole story, Seo-jin rifles through his closet while Secretary Kwon turns into a blubbering mess, thinking that Robin already disappeared and he never got to say goodbye. Seo-jin assures him that he isn’t gone gone, because Seo-jin and Hana aren’t ready to let him go. Secretary Kwon wails, “And do you think I’m ready? I’m not ready either!” D’aw.

Seo-jin has to bark at him to get it together, and promises to cry with him tomorrow if Robin still doesn’t show by then. They finally come out and Hana demands an answer for why he wouldn’t see her for days, and Seo-jin blurts, “Because I was happy.”

He says that he’s been so overwhelmed with happiness that it started to make him nervous, worried about how long it would last and if it was all a dream. Hana takes his hand and assures him that this isn’t a dream, but makes him swear not to do that again. She says that she hates guys who don’t answer calls, and Seo-jin nods a promise.

Secretary Kwon rushes them out the door for Robin’s radio show, but then when they get to the car, Seo-jin stops in his tracks. Oh crap, he has to drive it! He mentally chides himself for not taking driving lessons, and gingerly gets into the driver’s seat looking pale.

He looks seconds away from confessing the truth, when Secretary Kwon knocks on the window and asks if he can’t tag along to visit the station. I love the crazy eyes that they exchange as they fake their way through a conversation to justify Secretary Kwon kicking him out to drive.

Seo-jin doesn’t even have to try that hard to play Robin during his radio show, the reactions and speech patterns coming so naturally to him now. He reads the last caller’s story of the night, describing the city of Venice, which might sink into the water at any time.

He asks if the people who love that city aren’t afraid that it might disappear, or perhaps that fact is what makes them love it. He then confesses that he’s a person who resembles the city of Venice, and it’s clear that Seo-jin is reading a message from Robin.

He admits that he’s lived always fearing that he might disappear one day, but he’s made a decision to live differently from now on, and looks up at Hana. “Even if someone left me yesterday, or if I disappear tomorrow, I’ll live today.. Jang Hana, with you.”

Seo-jin is surprised as he says the words, but when he looks up at Hana, he breaks into a smile. On cue, the circus troupe arrives with cake and balloons to sing happy birthday to Hana on the other side of the radio studio. She radiates happiness in that moment, and Seo-jin gets to feel it for the first time—what it’s like to make her smile that way.

A ruckus in the studio sends the DJs’ headphones blaring with feedback noise, and for some reason it triggers a headache, and Robin comes out even though Seo-jin didn’t lose consciousness.

Robin is startled to find himself sitting in the station, and after the show ends, Secretary Kwon whispers in his ear in jondae that everything was perfect and nobody noticed. He’s shocked to realize that Seo-jin pretended to be him and didn’t even mess up once, and he confirms it with Woo-jung that nothing was weird about the radio broadcast or his birthday surprise.

Woo-jung hands him the footage she recorded during the show and mentions that Hana’s face says it all—she’s totally in love with him. That’s really not a comfort to Robin right now, given the circumstances. Woo-jung says goodbye with some finality and walks off.

Robin watches the recording when he’s alone, and is floored to see Hana so happy and unaware that Robin wasn’t Robin. He thinks, “She didn’t know…”

But what shocks him even more is the look on Seo-jin’s face, and it starts to dawn on him: “That’s… me. Seo-jin… is me.” Closing caption: Before I knew it, we surpassed “you and me” to “us.”
