[According to this poll, more than half of you voted for continuing recaps for The World They Live In -- 9% wanted them fast, 26% wanted them well-written, and 33% didn't care as long as they continued. Two readers volunteered to continue with the series, so I'm happy to have their contributions, the first of which is Mararu with Episode 6. Please welcome her, and I hope you enjoy. --javabeans]
First of all I would like to thank Javabeans for allowing me to continue the recaps.
I wanted to continue the recaps because I believe this drama is worth watching. It may not be as dramatic, funny or have lots of action like other dramas but it has that reality touch. The couples act like real couples and the characters all have different problems that we sometimes face. I do admit that sometimes the episodes can get a little boring but the story is still good. So folks lets give this drama another chance because it deserves it.
I’ll start on episode 6 now.

EPISODE 6 RECAP
Yoon Young (YY) is at a photo shoot; she is posing with different outfits and has different hairstyles. While Joon Young (JY) is ordering the crew around they are getting the set ready before filming starts. JY gets a call from JO, who calls her to tell her the plans he’s made for their 2 days off. He starts rambling about all these plans that JY is not too pleased with. JO gets a little upset and tells her to forget the plans; they will do whatever without plans. JY is happy to hear this and agrees; before he can say anything she hangs up. She gets another call from YY’s manager telling her that the photo shoot is running late and that the filming will have to be delayed 2 hours. JY is not too happy and calls JO to tell him that she will meet him later because YY pulled another of her diva stunts.
JO is at the office and is talking to one of the assistants when PD Park arrives and drags JO to see PD Kim against his will.
Back to YY. We see her rushing out of the photo shoot to her van. Once in the van she starts to get ready and screams at her manager (or assistant, I’m not sure) for scheduling the photo shoot the same day she had to film. She arrives and rushes inside to the set.
JO along with PD Park, PD Kim and writer Lee are drinking and talking about YY (I think they should find a new topic to talk about they always talk about the same thing and it’s starting to get old). PD Kim is the first one to leave and JO, wanting to meet JY soon, also gets up to leave but PD Park stops him. The conversation starts to get interesting when writer Lee asks PD Park if he was in the airport when PD Kim threw the TV with anger after YY announced her engagement. He answers, what if he was, and writer Lee asks him if he was also in love with YY. At this JO looks shocked in disbelief.
YY’s manager gets a call while YY is looking over her scenes. She is about to film when one of the heads enters the room to talk to YY. He tells her that her mother just passed away and that she should get ready for the funeral. He tells JY to reschedule the filming for another day but YY refuses and wants to film the scene. She films the love scene but we can see the distant look in her eyes. As soon as the scene is over she walks out in a hurry. At the funeral the media is waiting for her arrival and other celebrities.
Already inside the funeral home people are already eating and drinking (it seems more like a get together than a funeral, it’s very different to what I’ve seen). JY is eating with Crazy Yang [Soo-kyung] and PD Sohn [Kyu-ho] when Crazy Yang starts hitting on JY. She is annoyed and pushes him away because he is already drunk. He leaves JY alone and calls Hae Jin (HJ) to come over. PD Sohn looks jealous at the sight of HJ pouring drinks for the heads of the department that Crazy Yang just introduced.
Crazy Yang goes to the table where writer Lee is sitting with another lady. It turns out that the lady is the script writer for PD Sohn’s drama. He tells her that PD Sohn has another writer changing her script which angers her.
JY and JO are talking on the hallway and she wants to leave but is not sure if it would be okay. JO tells her that its okay since it’s a 3 day funeral. They decide to meet at 5 a.m. in a nearby building. Just then Min Hee is helping a very drunk Yang into the restroom; he sees JO and screams something to him. JO is about to go help him when JY tells him not to help him because he is always trouble (advice that kind-hearted JO does not take).
PD Sohn and the script writer are in a very heated argument. They go back and fort insulting each other and ends with PD Sohn calling the writer a b****.
Back in the restroom, Crazy Yang is puking, while Min Hee and JO wait for him to finish. He starts talking that PD Sohn got what he deserves and just then he gets punched right in the face. It’s PD Sohn very angry, he grabs him and takes him outside. JO tries to talk to them but Sohn tells him to stay out of it, so he just tells them to do whatever they want. Once outside the two guys go at it and poor Min Hee is trying to stop them but they are too strong for her. JO, on his way to meet JY, sees the fight and decides to try to stop them. In his attempt to stop them, he gets in between and Crazy Yang hits him and Min Hee.
JY is waiting for JO but he is late. He rushes to her side but JY is already upset with him. (BTW before I continue I like this scene a lot. I just like how she goes from being upset because he is late to being worried that he got hurt — it’s just too cute). She gives him a short lecture on what he would tell her if she was the one late. She then realizes that he is hurt and he tells her that Crazy Yang and PD Sohn hit him. Her anger switches to them now, i.e., how can they hurt her boyfriend. He hugs her and she treats his bruise with a little saliva like if he was a child (again cute). She then tells him to never be late again or else.
In a cab, PD Park and his wife have a discussion about their current celebrity crushes. She is asking him if he has a thing for YY because every time she is on he cranks up the TV. He responds by asking her if she thinks he doesn’t know about her celebrity crushes. The wife all of a sudden goes speechless.
JY and JO are running around getting snacks and movies, for the remainder of the time they have off from work. They plan to spend it at JY’s apartment, but once they arrive, to their surprise, JY’s mom is there with a couple of friends. They had gambled and drank the night before and fell asleep with all the mess. JY is very embarrassed and upset at her mother. They have an uncomfortable time at the apartment and go out to eat. At the restaurant, JY’s mom and friend talk about gambling. JY gets up pretty upset and leaves, and JO goes after her. She tells him that she is so embarrassed that she has to leave. He stays and goes in the restaurant, but JY’s mom and friend already left.
On the set, PD Sohn is imagining the next scene. He sees HJ wrapping her ankle — it seems she was hurt while shooting. He calls her tries to help her but she hits him because she was surprised by his gesture. They start talking about her always hurting herself and that he thought she would call in sick. She tells him that she is just there because she wants to see him. He starts rambling about her hitting on him all the time to which she responds that soon she will be a big star and that dating a director is too low. He just smiles and she starts bragging that she had an interview and a possible movie role. He actually looks very smitten by her (he is also starting to look more and more cute).
Crazy Yang doesn’t go to work and not only that, he acts like a victim in front of the other assistants and turns them against PD Sohn. Min Hee is trying to explain what really happened but no one lets her talk. JO arrives and explains what happened and shows them his bruise from the punch he gave him during the fight. Min Hee also shows her bruises and the assistants get angry with Crazy Yang. They tell him to go to work and Min Hee even lets him borrow her scooter.
JY is in the editing room trying to fix a scene but her mind is blank. JO comes in and gives her some ideas, then goes out for water and JY follows him. JO compliments her on the scenes and her mood suddenly lifts up. He tries to talk about her mom telling her that she is cute but JY changes the subject. She asks him how much more time they have; he tells her 36 hours. They rush out of the station to start again.
At the funeral, YY is talking business (who does these things in a funeral especially your mom’s?). PD Kim is nearby looking after her silently.
Back at PD Sohn’s drama set, the crew is getting ready for the next scene. The older actresses are talking about how hard it is lose a loved one when you are an actress. PD Sohn is talking to his assistant when he sees Crazy Yang. They talk and Crazy Yang apologizes but PD Sohn wants him to leave his team. He wants him to go to another department but Crazy Yang refuses. At this, PD Sohn tells him that pretty much he will give him a hard time. He starts by allowing Crazy Yang shoot the next scene (he knows that CY never reads the scripts or is prepared). At this CY is lost but goes with it. To his bad fortune, one of the older actresses tells him that she will leave in an hour even if she doesn’t shoot.
JY and JO are in his apartment lying around watching movies, reading mangas and just lazing around. JO gets frustrated with all the mess and JY offers to clean up. She just throws some things around and hides the dirt. He is amazed of how dirty she is and gets up to clean. While vacuuming he gives her a piggy back ride and she tells him where to clean. After they (by they I mean him) finish cleaning JO brushes JY’s teeth and cleans her up for bed. JY is already resting while JO gets water from the fridge; he suddenly is reminded about JY’s mom and looks very pensive. He goes to bed and hugs JY.
The next day JO and PD Kim are in the station talking about YY not crying even once in the funeral, and that she is tougher than a guy. JO then goes off topic and asks how much two buildings in Kangnam cost. PD Kim is confused and asks if he’s been drinking so early. (Off topic, I thought it was funny that they were watching Love & Marriage in this scene).
In the last scene, PD Kim receives a call and goes to meet YY. He is driving her somewhere and they start to talk about her mother. She explains that her aunt told her not to cry because her mom wouldn’t like it. PD Kim asks her when she started listening to others. She continues talking about her mom and suddenly asks him to stop the car because she needs fresh air. He stops the car, she gets off and starts talking about her mom again. It seems she feels bad because she thought her mom was really tough, and did not believe the doctors when they told her that her mom was in critical condition. At this point she starts crying uncontrollably. PD Kim stays by her side silently while she continues crying.
End of Episode
This episode had many cute JO and JY moments but I think YY stole the show with the ending scene. It was a real emotional and sad moment. I also like the development of many of the characters especially PD Sohn he gets more likeable every episode. On the other hand Crazy Yang gets on my nerves he is rude and very thoughtless.
