—————–
#1
OPENING
SH says he hates painting and drawing, he just did it because they ahd to go there. It was comfortable for me to do it, but after meeting you, that side of myself became uncomfortable for me.

Don’t leave this swimming pool. I don’t know if I like you, that is what I told you.

Well, If you dont like someone then you won’t make them so embarrassed

Not you, the painting

You don’t have to explain everything to me

Where you sad? Look at me.

He tries to pull her closer to him and asks why she is there listeing to him. She says he is teh one that wnated her to listen to him, like when he broke that plate. She regreted it. Why does he pretend to be a bad boy, it hurts yourself.

SH tells TH that she is really grown up.

She asks what he is talking about.

But he starts laughing and walks up to her again. He pulls her close to him and tells her that, when she is intense like this, it makes him feel like a bad person. No kissing, I am leaving first.

He leaves.

What, you told me to leave? Let’s go outside and see some stars.

SH leaves TH in the pool.

SJ AND SH
SH tells SJ that he is leaving to go see some starts. SJ wants to know if he told SZ, they started this game together, so they have to end it together. SH says he doens’t need permission.

Meanwhile, SZ meets TH at the pool. She says that she knows that SH likes drawing. She is just mean to him and doesn’t understand him and I pretend like I am a bad person because I have to hide that I like him. TH wants to know what she is talking about. SZ tells TH that they love each other. It is something they can’t avoid. They can’t stop their parents from marrying so they have to work hard to be just siblings. It’s nice that he met someone. Sorry I am telling you this secret. I am telling you because I am sad. Our story just stopped progressing and no one even knows about it. We are so pitiful.

TH gets out of the swimming pool and puts on her robe. She says that SZ doesn’t have to be sorry to them, it is easy to keep the secret for her because all those secrets are only important for the people in the secret, but it isn’t important for anyone else. So I won’t be sorry for you, and I don’t trust people who know their feelings. You can be confused, love and friendship, I hope it is mistaken feelings. How much did you guys love each other?

SZ – We went far enough for our parents not to know what happened.

SZ leaves.

KITCHEN
SZ goes into the kitchen and sits with SH. He syas he will make her a hot chocolate with marshmellows, 3 marshmellows. He tells her to give him her hand. She talks to him about secret things between the two of them. TH sees this and leaves.

SZ tells SH that it looks like TH likes him. So their deal should be set, he can dump her. SZ says they shouldn’t talk about it now though, she might hear them. SZ says they shouldn’t have a secret between them, the three of them. SZ wants to give TH the hot chocolate but SH goes to her room to give it to her.

SZ tells her that they can see the stars together, but she just tell him goodnight.

In the kitchen, SZ says that she doens’t like it, she doesn’t like that SH likes her. She goes to the sink and dumps her hot chocolate. SJ also sees this and says…secret. Maybe he head the secret was that they would get married.

#2

SOCIAL SERVICE
MR is doing the same social services that SH’s mom did. She goes to the nursing home and looks around at all the photos. This is the first time she saw little SH. But then she sees the mom and tells her that she hasn’t seen her in awhile, will she hate seeing her there? Flashback to a car accident. MR says she regrets it, but she doesn’t feel sorry to her. It wasn’t intended.

A person comes up to her and asks if JK Groups support ended. MR says their group will be together, so the support will continue. The woman thanks her for preparing everything. then this woman says he is a cute kid right? He has come recently again. MR looks at the photo.

VACATION HOME
SH comes home and wonders where TH is. She left a note saying that she left early. SH runs out. SZ looks at him and says that it looks like SH is acting like he is playing a game. It’s confusing right? But SJ doesn’t talk about it and just says that he will have an expresso.

Meanwhile TH is walking to the bus stop. But her leg hurts her. She thinks she shouldn’t have gotten in-between the three of them, why does she feel like this? But then SH runs up to her. He asks why she isn’t picking up the phone and she says it is because she misses him when she doesn’t hear his voice (when she hears his voice?). He gives her a piggyback ride and TH is happy that she gets one today. She thanks him for finding her there.

He wonders if she didn’t like it at his place, but she says everyone was kind accept for him. She pulls out her phone and they take a lot of selfies together. She hops off and says that she wants to hold hands and walk with him. They playfully talk back and forth about Cinderella and Snow whites mirror.

At the same time, SZ and SJ are driving back. SJ stops somewhere to fish and this makes SZ so upset. But he is chill about it and tells her to just relax for one hour and fish with him. She sits and they talk about SJ fishing. SJ says this is teh best place to run away to because no one thinks that a teanager will run away to this spot to fish. He says he won’t catch anything, he is there and the fish are there so that is all they need.

SJ knows that SZ doesn’t want to be alone except when she shops which makes her say that he knows her so well, it makes her mad. They ponder why TH left. SJ wonders about the fisherman, the fisherman failed. The three of them stick together so much, so TH can’t bit between them, that is why she left. (this part is confusing).
—————–
#3
MR AND SW
They both meet with a congressman to talk about passing their drug. The congressman wants his kid in JK group because he/she has a hard time finding a job. MR thinks this is possible, but she kindly refuses. the congressman laughs and then they all say good bye.

Afterwards MR and SW talk about their weekend. She says she wants to send SZ overseas, she isn’t playing cello just for fun. SW wonders if she wants to go. MR tells him to not think about SZ for the inheritance later, but he thinks SZ can become a nice musician and then take over their foundation. MR wants to know about SH, but SW turns cold and tells her not to talk to SH and don’t mistake the purpose of their marriage. His secretary told him that SH was interested in his moms accident, but he will take care of it.

TH AND SH
He drops her off at her house and blocks the sun for her while she naps in his car. Then they go inside and start to cook and take selfies. they talk about the other two, did they make it back yet? But SH says SJ’s phone is off becaue he is always away from hom. Th says they look like best friends have they ever had a moment were they were attracted to each other? SH doesn’t respond.

Instead, he asks her why she takes so many pictures. TH says it is the first time someone has cooked for her in a long time. She takes a few more photos.

SJ AND SZ
Both of them arrive very late. All of a sudden, SJ ispulled from the car by men in suits who tell each other to get the black box. SH gets a call and runs out. He says something happened and just takes off. SZ tells him that SJ was abducted! Maybe it is some married woman, a gangsters wife! SH looks at bit more relaxed about it. But then they get a text. SJ tells SZ that it was for a memorial service.

MR comes home and sees them both together. She tells them that they came back late. MR tells him that she met with his father, he will be at hime. SZ is a bit annoyed that SW didn’t drop her mother off at home, but her mother just tells her that they are both adults who drive.

MR mentions that the red car is unlucky because it had an accident, she will buy him a new one. But SH says that he wants that car and he will buy another one later when he has his own money.

TH
TH washes the dishes and sits on SH’s couch. she looks at her phone and starts to save SH’s photo in his profile on her phone. But then seh sees the photo of the three friends and leaves to go back to her place. then she runs into her friend KJ. KJ is shocked that she is coming out of SH’s place, but then says that it is great that they are living together!

TH tries to play it off. They go somewhere to talk and KJ says that SZ wanted to hook SH up with her (?). KJ tells her to do push-pull with SH since he is doing it with you. But TH doesn’t want to play those games. However, he comes up riht behind them and tells KJ, shhh.

COMMERCIAL BREAK
—————–
#4
SH sits next to them o n the bench and laughs at all the thinks TH is saying about him. She lays on the bench and he looks over her and says something to her. She thinks she is going crazy, she even hears his voice! But he just laughs and walks away, he tells her that they should eat together tomorrow.

At the same time, SZ practices the cello.

SJ on the other hand, is about to get into a lot of trouble with his family. The sister in law explains everything that SJ did wrong. He was supposed to be in his room, but he was only there for one day. Who helped him! Everyone is bowing before Abonim and explaining that it wasn’t them. SIL says that SJ should go to the USA. SJ says he can go to the USA but he only knows love and sex as English words. Grandfather passes out and SJ gets up and casually walks back to his room as everyone runs to grandfathers side.

The other SIL comes into his room and gives him a drink that is good for bruises. He thanks her and tells her that it looks like poison. They chat about what he did and she tries to give him some good advice. She heads out and runs into the mean SIL. They backhand each other with words so SJ gets up and tells them to fight outside.
—————–
#5
SJ calls SH but he says he is busy and hangs up. then he calls SZ but SZ just hangs up right away.

TH’S PLACE
SH goes to TH’s room, but KJ won’t let him in. She tells him not to play in the swimming pool with her and SZ. SH looks a bit confused about that.

But then KJ calls TH and says that SH is looking for you. TH smiles and starts to fix her bangs. But then a man tells SH that a high schooler was in a hit and run that day. It was a hit and run case and the only case in that town. But it might not have anything to do with his mothers case?

SH sits against the wall and cries. Then he gets up to go see TH. He wathes her from the window and thinks that she is pretty. He takes her photo and goes inside. But TH is trying to do push-pull, so she is pretending like she doesn’t care if he is there. She avoids all his advances/suggestions.

The halmae from the nursing home calls SH. then the pastor talks to him and asks him if he will see the halmoni, he smiles and says that he wants to see her too. He is about to ask TH if she wants to go with him, but then KY oppa shows up. He talks to TH about working in this place, she should work in his parents law firm instead. TH thinks that might be a great idea.

But in the background, SH is mocking whatever KY says.

TH goes up to him which makes KY go up to him too. KY and SH get into a mini argument about SZ that SH wins. But then SH gives all his attention back to TH. However TH talks to KY and says she just needs 10 minutes and then she will come to his office.

NURSING HOME
SH goes to the nursing home by himself and gives the halmoni a big hug. He sits with everyone and starts to eat and talk about MR and how she is a good person. The nurses want to know if he fought with TH, why dont’ they come togehter? He says he doesn’t know, she might be mad at him. The Father tells him to ask her to buy dinner. If you tell her to buy dinner then the womans mind will be weak. The halmoni says, no, he should buy dinner. All the halmoni’s start to give SH money even though he tells them that he has money. Its a pretty cute scene.
—————–
#6
TH is eating with KY, but she is a bit annoyed because she thought she was going to have an interview at his law firm. He wonders how she can think that? He just wanted to get her out of the cafe. But TH is mad, she takes off and tells him that her formality ends there. She goes to the counter, pays for her meal and
leaves. KY is even more smitten with her, he thinks he needs to find a woman like that.

But TH is annoyed and broke now, she says she only has half her money. They she sees some little kids crying and tries to help them get their ball out of the tree. She climbs the tree, but then SH shows up and says she should use her brain. He hits the ball out of the tree with another ball and tells the kids to go home right away. Then he asks TH to go eat with him. But she tell him to go away so she can jump. He says okay, so she jumps…but he runs and catches her.

Cut to his place. He wants her to eat with him and already prepared a lot of food. he wants her to eat it all. She sees his sketchbook and starts to look through it. All the drawings are really good. She takes out a very detailed drawing which is of his mother. Then he sees a drawing of Suzie and her face falls. She thinks back to SZ telling her that they loved each other to an amount that their parents shouldn’t know about. She thinks that was a very stupid question to ask.

TH gets a call from her appa and sadly tells SH that she will talk to him. She goes outside and puts on a brave happy face as she talks to him and shows him around her apartment to the bathroom and the bedroom and her desk. He says it is super nice, he is relieved to see it. She tells him that he doens’t have to worry about her at all. He asks about Umma’s work and her exhibition. he is also roasting some beans and will send it to Korea for her. This makes TH upset, why will he send her those coffee beans? She only loves your coffe beans and not you. She only married you becaue she was dumped.

But TH apologizes and the entire situation reminds her of SH. She thinks she is just like her appa.

TH goes back to his place and says she wants to quit, it is too hard. She though, when they went on the trip together, that she wanted to be like SZ and SJ to him. But they can’t be like that because they just met. She doesn’t want to be like SZ or SJ to him. She wanted to be his girlfriend. You asked me if I will regret it, I am regretting it. Going on the trip and telling you I liked you, I regret it all. You aren’t pretending to be a bad boy, you just don’t like me. I want to take your pictures, but why do you just go out and see SZ but you forget about our promise and why do you make me say these things to you. See, you just hold me barely.

Did SZ say something to you.

We are talking about you and me, I don’t care what SZ said. Leave.

Come to my room and talk.

That’s right, this is your building, just leave.

She closes the door and cries on the other side. SH stands in the hallway staring at the door.

Fade Out.

    Does anyone thinks SH is going to die like in the Cruel Intentions version?

    • Gong shil🔆
      March 27, 2018 / 8:04 am

      I didn’t see that version, but in the original (like 30 years ago) with Glen Close as the rich”girl” and John malcovitch as SH – Glen gets royally dissed by the people she had looked down on and they realize how evil she is. the character of SH gets himself deliberately killed in a duel, . I saw it a long time ago so I’m not 100% sure on ending I still have to see the newer one, it looked interesting. This K drama one is really good, I think they are all talented.

        Oh wow, now I need to watch this Glen Close version. Have you seen the version with Jang Dong-gun? I haven’t seen it yet, just curious.

          No I havnt seen that one, is it good? I can look it up on drama nice. What is the name of it?

      • JD
        March 27, 2018 / 9:13 am

        I think this drama borrowed the concept of the original, but will be much different. Hopefully it becomes a well made makjang drama, not just bad makjang drama. Either way, I will still watch it.

    I don’t know why I’m watching this show! Haha what a guilty addiction. I think it’s the does he doesn’t he push pull thing that makes me keep on reading even though half of me knows it’s really ridiculous!

    For some reason I still prefer Suji over Tae Hee and not just cos Joy’s acting is pretty flat. Their relationship is more interesting to me: both obviously in complete denial and also confusing infatuation with love. I think SH needs to sort out his feelings about her and resolve that first before he can move anywhere with Tae Hee.

      I was thinking the same thing about Suzy. I love her character way more than Tae Hee. What I really want to happen is have TH be the one who played Si-hyun from the beginning. I know that probably won’t happen, but that could be a big reversal.

      • Justamom

          Seriously? Why do you like her? She is a nasty, nasty person, and not even interestingly so. At first I liked her, but as the show has gone on she has just proven to be a vain, manipulative b. She is absolutely dreadful to Se Joo and not too much better to Si Hyun. I get that she is hurt, but at some point you’d think she would have taken a look at herself and learned a thing or two. I am not the biggest fan of Tae Hee either, but she is a far sight better than Soo Ji.

          As far as I see it, Si Hyun basically told Soo Ji how he felt back in school and she just tossed him away, while still making sure he stays close. There is only confusion there because she has fostered it in her vain need to have all eyes focused on her. Now she sees that his focus is wavering because someone else has come across his radar that he is actually interested in. I think his thing with Soo Ji is more a habit now and his feelings for Tae Hee are confusing for him because he has had his Soo Ji habit for so long. I hope for his sake that he ends up with Tae Hee in the end if only for his own sanity. That relationship between him and Soo Ji is toxic.

            Not as a person. I should say I love to hate her. Her character really shakes things up.

              April 2, 2018 / 11:54 am

              I agree, I love it when she is on screen. I like TH too, but there is just something about Suzy’s character that is fun to hate. Much better than a bad girl character that just annoys the Crap out of me like Tae-ri in Radio Romance. I just wanted her off my screen.

    Ahhh…i cant believe they ended this episode like this 😭😭😭 maybe through this Si Hyun will have some time to think about what he really feels and how Tae Hee made him feel…

    On another note, thank You for the live recap!! I found you during the Hwayugi days and you guys fed my impatient heart lol fightinggg 💜

    I was a bit disappointed when TH feel for SH so quickly. But, now it feels right that she wants to end it first. I am glad her character is more grounded and intelligent that most female kdrama leads. She is seeing flaws in their relationship very objectively (i loved how she drew a parallel to her dad). Also, this will apply to anyone SH dates in future. She hit the right problem. There is no space for a girlfriend in his life. Atleast not in his current setup.

    On a side note – SJ. Someone give this man more screen time please.
    He is probably the most mature of the 3.

        Me too, I love how she is pushing him away now. Let’s see if he will be able to get her back quickly or if it will take a bit more time this go around.
