Episode 13

After reading the documents stating In-woo’s relation to the case, Hye-ri, in shock, can’t stand still and trips. He approaches her just in time to grab her wrist (his trademark move ¬¬). She tells him that his hand feels warm, and he nods “That’s right, that’s me”. She asks what is right, that he knew her from the first time they met? Once again, he nods, it was no coincidence, no fate, no nothing but a previously thought plan.

Hye-ri: You used me?

In-woo: Probably… Definitely.

Smack!

In-woo coldly argues that she’s a person who often forgets to take a careful look around her, once she’s focused on something. Mr. Flashback shows us how not only her wallet was robbed on purpose by the guy who checked that she didn’t leave Korea (airport episode), but also the paper with his number was taken away from her while entering the elevator (I didn’t see this coming!). The apartment and everything else were bricks in his revenge wall. Hye-ri is beyond devastated seeing how her little, cozy world is falling apart and crouches while crying. In-woo helps her to sit on a bench, standing by her side until she decides to go. Seeing her pitiful state, he drives her home.

That day, Hye-ri doesn’t go to work, so her boss is pretty angry at her, affirming that it’s because of her princess-like education that she isn’t responsible for anything. All of the prosecutors try to calm him down, excusing her – maybe she’s sick or… very sick? Both Se-joon and Jung-sun try to contact her, with no luck. The girl is hiding under a rock.

Meanwhile, Hye-ri is crying at home, remembering Se-joon’s warning “What do you know about Lawyer Seo?” She even ignores her dad’s call, pitying herself for being so dumb and blind.

Back at In-woo’s house, Jenny is receiving fresh news about the titan’s confrontation via phone. He reassures that he won’t go to work and hangs up. Jenny wonders – he’s not going or he can’t go?

Obviously, he can’t go, he’s too remorseful to face daylight. Don’t worry; she’s coming to wake you up, stupid jerk. Gathering all her remaining strength together, Hye-ri, barefooted (!), goes to his apartment and, not letting him utter even a word, slaps him in the face (cliiiiiick). She can’t keep her strong woman charade for long, though, and she stumbles while going away. “Get hold of yourself! Brace yourself…” he shouts. Because that’s so easy, huh? She smiles bitterly, as in saying you have no right to pretend to be worried about me. After all, he’s the one who put her in this miserable situation.

At Mr. Ma’s home, Ae-ja and Sang-tae are discussing about Hye-ri. Where is she? Is she somewhere calls are restricted? Ae-ja covers her daughter, saying that didn’t call because of Hye-ri’s restriction to do so.

Ae-ja: She doesn’t like her dad, and she doesn’t like the person who made you her dad.

I love how Ae-ja has finally dared to withstand her husband, making him upset with her constant ramblings. She isn’t afraid of him or of him divorcing her; her only goal, the one that gives her the nerve to answer him back, is to see her daughter happy.

Moving onto Jung-sun’s home, her mum has asked her and Prosecutor Yoon to hold a meeting with a pretty lame excuse (everyone knows that she’s trying to put those lovebirds together). She says that a friend of hers wants to introduce Se-joon to an acquaintance – is that okay with him? He doesn’t want to do it, so she sends Jung-sun to see that person in a nearby spa. Whatthehell expression from Jung-sun, who refuses to do it. Pushy Jung-sun’s mum now asks Se-joon if he knows her daughter’s boyfriend… Se-joon is completely loving this moment of prosecutorial-puffed-out-cheeks embarrassment, teasing Jung-sun about her imaginary boyfriend. After going out to get some fresh air, they decide (it was mostly “Se-joon decides”) to pay a visit to Hye-ri, who’s missing in action.

It’s night already, and Jung-sun calls Hye-ri to offer their help. Without anything else to be done for her, they sit on a bench to talk. She’s still misunderstanding the situation and feels a tad uncomfortable being there with Hye-ri’s supposedly boyfriend, leaving her in a “third-wheel” position.

Se-joon: Seeing Ma Hye-ri was uncomfortable but fascinating as well. Her physical appearance was so similar to my wife but her personality was so different. If Bin’s mum’s personality was like Prosecutor Ma’s, she wouldn’t have gotten cancer [?]. Eun-ji became a mother at that age and was no able to enjoy her youth. For many reasons, it made me think a lot.

Jung-sun understands his feelings, how his guilt prevented him from approaching another people – that’s not an easy task. He finally admits that what he felt towards Hye-ri was just due to her similarity to his wife – he thought that his dead wife had sent someone for him to cling to. In the end, it was through this fantasy that he could have the real picture. He looks at her with his killer smile, come on Jung-sun, hug him, he’s already informed you that his relationship with Hye-ri is just a friendship! No hug and frustration levels suddenly skyrocket.

Hye-ri continues her investigation going to Go Man-chul’s house to show him those photos (the ones that proved that her father’s alibi was fake). SNAP! “How did this girl get this kind of evidence?” might be thinking Man-chul. That’s why they say that there’s nothing more harmful than a disgusted woman. ANYWAY. He claims not to know anything about them, but… Damn! While talking to her nonsensically about calling him to court and stuff, he uses his telephone inconspicuously to warn someone (Ma Sang-tae?) about this sudden picture discovery.

The warned person takes fast measures, and just as Hye-ri arrives at Ha Jung-nan’s store, two guys riding a motorbike steal her handbag.

Pictureless, Hye-ri enters Jung-nan’s store almost in tears. She tells him about the fake alibi and the mismatching timelines without letting Jung-nan say a word. Eventually, Jung-nan demands for proof.

Hye-ri: Actually, the proof is you, Ha Jung-nan.

There’s a catch, my friends! Not everything is lost when what was stolen is something that’s vital for In-woo. A second motorbike rider steals the handbag from the first thieves and returns it to Hye-ri (I was wishing for In-woo to be the mysterious rider, but heck no, it was some guy he hired). Now that In-woo’s true self has been discovered, Hye-ri positively knows (or at least, suspects) that this “handbag return” has “In-woo did it” written all over reality’s face. She asks Jung-nan about “writer Seo” – what kind of person is he?

Right after Hye-ri leaves, Jung-nan invites In-woo to the store (he was patrolling outside, hidden in his oh-so-remarkable-car-that-is-never-noticed-by-Hye-ri). Time of revelations has arrived – In-woo admits being a lawyer and to be lying to her all along; he’s sorry, but he had to do it.

The unsuccessful thief reports his failure to Ma Sang-tae, who dismisses him in an unworried way (yes, this bugged me. Not even shouting at him or telling him that he’s good for nothing?). This might be related to the fact that his criminal-soon-to-be-discovered sixth sense has been awakened. Who is helping Hye-ri with this case, sending this second thief?

What follows is one of many face to face moments of this episode, this one takes place at Yoo-na’s store. Every each of them has delightful, witty, heart wrenching and scary lines. Moreover, their particular order is crucial to undertand the logic behind this episode’s ending. So, enjoy with me!

1st Face to face of the night: Hye-ri vs. Jenny Ahn

On one side of the ring, we have Hye-ri, the manipulated Prosecutor who’s looking for the truth even when it might destroy her life. On the other, Jenny Ahn, the cool friend and accomplice of Hye-ri’s love interest. There was a small confrontation before the proper fight. How does Yoo-na know her rival? Okay, okay, now the referee clarifies: “She’s the VIP who told me about Gioberni’s audition and the hotel”. DANG! Drink some water, coaches out… It’s time for the first round!

Jenny tells him that this is no gang fight, there are no sides to be taken. Hye-ri answers back – “you helped him from the beginning and made a fool out of me”. Is she mad now? Obviously, bitch! Does she want an apology? She doesn’t need apologies from people like them.

Well said, girl!

It’s just a pity that Jenny has advantage over you: she’s not broken inside at the moment, so her feelings won’t diminish her wittiness. Jenny was not planning to apologize even if she asked to, everything in Hye-ri’s expensive, luxurious life was bought with In-woo’s suffering; she took everything from him. Just as she was ending her statement she asks Hye-ri to put herself in his shoes, to look from his perspective, one that was built after 15 years of patient waiting.

It’s clear that this was a straight knock out for Hye-ri. I’m sorry for you, my girl, but Jenny has some valid points of view. It’s understandable that the daughter is not guilty for her father sins (in fact, it’s not understandable, it’s a fact); but it’s undeniable that he might be resented after having such a miserable life while Ma’s family was having a wonderful one.

Back to real life, Hye-ri may be still all wounded and full of bruises, but she can fight back. She returns home, goes to her balcony and forces In-woo to drink a cup of tea together, as a thank you gesture for returning her bag. How many times have I said that she’s awesome? I won’t stop. She is.

They hold their meeting at his balcony, and we get the second face to face. This time is the lover’s turn to talk about the past, the motives and the means.

2nd Face to face of the night: Hye-ri and In-woo

Everything starts with Hye-ri asking how he accomplished to gain her affection. Did he use a lot of money? Nod. Did he make the previous apartment owner to move? Nod. Did he study how to manipulate minds? Nod. He did everything in order to make her move emotionally; he cooked, piggybacked, listened to her, and stayed with her while she was scared… Summarizing, he played the perfect guy just to use her. Pretending to like someone he hated, must’ve been really hard.

Hye-ri: What do you want from me?

In-woo: Proving the innocence of my father.

Hye-ri: What?

In-woo: Not a murderer, but my father who died with the accusation of being a murderer, my father’s clothes that portray him as a murderer… I want to rid him of that.

It’s In-woo’s turn to talk and he uses his time to tell her his childhood tragedy.

So now, imagine that we’re many years back in time, enjoying a great family bonding moment with Mr. Seo, In-woo and his mum. They seem to get along pretty well, playing soccer (are In-woo’s soccer shoes, the ones that he always looks at, his father’s?), eating together and doing those happy things that happy families do. UNTIL. Director Yoo (the soon to be dead person) calls Mr. Seo telling him that he’ll meet president Ma, thus making a suddenly nervous In-woo’s dad rush to the construction site. Surprisingly, he finds Director Yoo dead with lots of money strewn on the floor and in shock, touches his head, getting his hands stained with blood (that’s the precise instant in which the guard / Mr. Shin / Flower shop guy arrives). Mr. Seo tries to make a call, but the phone’s wires are cut…

Eventually, he’s imprisoned and teenager In-woo goes to visit him. At first, he can’t look at his father’s face, not because he hates him, he’s just afraid of crying. Oh, the heartbreak! In-woo knows that his father is not a criminal, he’ll prove his innocence, sealing this promise with a pinky swear.

[Brief present days chat. Grown up In-woo tells Hye-ri that his father went to the construction site because of the Yoo – Ma meeting. After hearing that Sang-tae denied going there, he knew that her father was the real culprit. In-woo’s words make her remember Sang-tae’s statement (the one she read at the documents room), claiming not to have gone to the location and sending Director Seo instead. He lied (Mr. Seo went after Yoo’s call).]

Despaired, In-woo goes to Ma Sang-tae’s home, begging for help. He insists that his father is not a murderer, that he’s innocent, but Sang-tae gets rid of him and slams the door in his face. Infant Hye-ri is looking from a balcony, this is the pre-muffin story.

Just as he was looking for justice, his father was dying of a heart attack. Quick cut to see grown In-woo asking rhetorically why his father didn’t wait for him to be a lawyer, and we return to the past to find out what the lake was supposed to mean – it’s where Dong-seun’s ashes were spread. That place is where he promised himself that he would prove his father’s innocence no matter what.

After all the deceit, tragedy and unfairness Korea gave to this family, In-woo’s mum decided that they had to go to America in order not to die of suffocation. Even when they went hoping for a brighter future, they had harsh times trying to adapt to both her job and their neighborhood. Feeling lonely and afraid, In-woo went out and hid in a dirty, full of thugs alley (why would he do that???). While looking for him, In-woo’s mum crossed the street without looking and a car ran her over. Flashback ends with In-woo crying by his dead mum’s side.

Hye-ri is touched by all of this, but the question remains unanswered… Why did he use her to get revenge? He says that it wasn’t strictly revenge; he just wants his father to be clean of charges. She wonders why he used her and still thinks it’s not revenge.

In-woo: I thought it would be fun. As soon as I got back to Korea and passed the bar exam, I started investigating the murder of Yoo Myung-woo. I found Ma Sang-tae and found those involved as well. While the investigation was going smoothly, Ma’s daughter passed the bar exam and was planning on becoming a prosecutor. It was quite funny. I looked into what kind of person she was, naive and curious, but doesn’t hold suspicions. If there weren’t any incidents, then she would be the best choice.

This is the hate him / love him moment of truth. If you can take this kind of harsh revelation and remain empathetic, there’s almost nothing that will move you away from his character. It’s hard to do it, I admit having my serious doubts, (his means and ways of thinking were completely twisted and spiteful), but I can feel what he’s feeling right now, so I won’t burn my ships and leave. I want more.

She feels outraged by his words – did he think that she’d continue with it, when no one else but her father is involved? Yes, he thinks so, she’s a prosecutor, her work is to fight for truth. Making her dig her father’s past, isn’t it revenge? No, he keeps on saying that she’s a prosecutor; it should be the right thing to do, helping the wronged person. Then, what about being sorry for all the things he did? For using her, for faking a lovely relationship, isn’t he sorry about that?

In-woo: A person that starts off knowing that will feel sorry, doesn’t feel apologetic.

Hye-ri: Not even once?

In-woo: A person who would be sorry, doesn’t do something like that.

Smack #2!

More or less, everything has been settled with this statement, huh? In tears, Hye-ri affirms that she will believe her father, unless clear evidence is found. He goes all cynical, making me hate him with my entire empathetic soul, telling her that “Oh, right, because what you’ve found is not clear enough”. I would clearly beat him with that stupid gas bomb clock thing till death.

What follows next is SO random, that I’ll summarize it quickly. Hye-ri runs out crying, In-woo sees her from his balcony, and follows her from a short distance. Yeah… So what…? One hour ago he was telling her in a few words that she was dumb and easy to manipulate, and now goes all melancholic following her with exactly which purpose? If they wanted to show us that he still cares about her, make him sing a forgiveness serenade OR SOMETHING, this is not enough! Rant over, but c’mon!

Second face to face ends just as third and fourth ones start arising. Ma Sang-tae finds the truth behind her daughter’s only friend: he’s the son of Seo Dong-geun. On the other side, Ha Jung-nan wants to confess the truth to Hye-ri.

3rd Face to face of the night: Ha Jung-nan and Hye-ri

It seems like in the picture Hye-ri showed, the one of her and Go Man-chul going out of the hotel, displayed true events. They left at 10:30 pm because of Ma Sang-tae’s call to Man-chul. The store was closed that day, but she opened for Ma Sang-tae to come in with Go Man-chul, near 11 pm. Go Man-chul was the one who told her to lie and say that they had been drinking since 9 pm.

The reason why she’s confessing is that it was what In-woo asked her to do. She understood his motives for doing what he’d done, and felt pity for him, so she had to say what she knew about that night. Hye-ri can’t get why she feels that way, leading Jung-nan to explain that regardless of his first intentions, he’s helped her a lot for two years, with a kind sincerity.

Hye-ri: Then you believe Seo In-woo?

Jung-nan: Even if it’s only sincerity at the moment… Sincerity is sincerity.

Hye-ri looks puzzled. Is this what she should believe in too?

4th Face to face of the night: In-woo vs. Ma Sang-tae

Ma Sang-tae experiments a little with a kind approach, but In-woo obviously cuts him short. For a person who has taken away his father’s life, Ma Sang-tae is daring to go and ask how he’s grown up? In-woo won’t allow that, neither will accept Sang-tae’s reprimands for digging in that old case or using his daughter for his personal interest.

Sang-tae: Using my daughter is investigating?

In-woo: Do you have evidence that I’m using her? Well, I guess that not having evidence that I’ve used her, doesn’t mean that I didn’t do it.

In-woo senses that Sang-tae is nervous about all of this investigation stuff, and plays with words in order to make him angrier. Sang-tae wants to seem confident, but he won’t tell his daughter about this encounter, which tangentially means that he’s the real murderer.

All these faces to faces are driving me insane! Why is this episode this full of them??? Sang-tae has to run away from his meeting because of Hye-ri’s call demanding to see him, so here it goes…

5th Face to face of the night: Hye-ri vs. Ma Sang-tae

Ha Jung-nan’s confession has put Sang-tae in the spotlight. If he’s not the culprit, well, he must be hiding some REALLY big secret. And he’s hiding it REALLY well. Now, he claims to be saying the truth, he couldn’t admit where he was that night, but he’s innocent. He tells her to look at that shoddy construction case, what he said was the truth, even when it’ll destroy his reputation. Why would he lie here? Then, if he’s innocent, why doesn’t he tell her what happened that night? He can’t and he won’t.

Sang-tae: If you’re going to persist upon being stubborn and go around doing that, forget about being a prosecutor and come back home!

Ha! You created this monster, bro!

Hye-ri: Don’t try to scare me. Even if you drag me back home… Even if you burn all of my clothes, shoes and handbags… I’m not the Ma Hye-ri that obeys all of her father’s commands due to fear.

Aaaaannnndddd… This is THE momento. Hye-ri as a grown up human being. Hye-ri as a honest person. Hye-ri as a responsible professional. Look out, world, here she comes!

After all of these exhausting face to face situations, Hye-ri is wanting to go back to her In-woo, but the the forgiveness part is still an issue. Why isn’t he at least a bit sorry? Why can’t he admit that?

While weeping by the gas bomb clock, listening to his recorded voice and talking to it as if it was Lawyer Seo himself, Hye-ri comes up with this awesooommeeeee idea (yeah, it’s awesome because of what it’ll lead to! I love you, fate!). Tired of listening to his voice over and over again, she wonders if the message can be deleted, and dismantles the bomb! Only to find a bigger one inside… Lawyer’s Seo hidden message.

In-woo (hidden bomb inside the bomb): Miss Ma Hye-ri. How old are you now? Where are you living now? No… Where are you residing now? Right now, I followed you and moved. I am currently at the home with the terrace that I moved to, following you. It is so nice here. In a place as nice as this, I’m preparing for your troubled times. Being with you, will make me feel both happy yet unsettled, not knowing that there’d be a turn of events in my plan, blaming my arrogant self for choosing you, knowing that you’ll be hurt… I’m still going to hurt you. I will end up not being able to stop. So, the words “I’m sorry”, I can’t say them. Hye-ri, don’t eat only grass and live long in good health. Find a person that loves you very much, meet a person who will erase the wounds I gave you and… Be happy. So I can be less sorry towards you. When you hear this, I wish that you’re 77. Like in Titanic, your loving daughter or granddaughter, telling them how when you were young, innocent, immature and beautiful, there was one who made your life a living hell… Such a jerk existed but, despite what he did, I lived well while laughing. When you can freely talk badly about me, I hope it would be then. I’m sorry… I’m sorry… I’m sorry…

What the…? Oh, God, I could barely go through his entire message without crying. And I don’t cry over dramas or movies, but this was so heartfelt, so intensely said, that I could feel as if I was Hye-ri, remembering every instance in which In-woo cared about her. She can’t help it, she has to go and give me my exasperating 6th face to face moment. Thank God it’s the best out of the six!

6th Face to face of the night: Hye-ri vs. / and In-woo

When he sees her standing out of his house, he asks himself the same thing I did before: why didn’t she throw that stupid clock away? You’ll thank fate for this beautiful event later, In-woo.

Okay, then. Hye-ri commands him to delete his message (the carpooling one), with her full strength back on! He tells her to get lost, but she insists. She wants it deleted. Now. She dares to go into his house, preventing him from slamming the door in her face with her hand (not foot!). He doesn’t want her to step into his apartment – what, are you afraid she’ll attack ya?

Hye-ri starts a long almost monologue inside his house. She asks if he knows how much she looked for him when he disappeared, where and why she did it. He doesn’t express excitement, he seems more frustrated and annoyed (hey, boy, if you truly don’t want to be near her, you should move. If not, then don’t be this annoying, okay?).

In-woo: I didn’t think about it.

Hye-ri: Liar.

He tries to escape from her words, but she follows him, she needs to wake him up, to show him the light at the end of the tunnel. Why is he so scared of her?

Hye-ri: It’s because you’re sorry, right?

Jackpot! That’s why he disappeared – he was afraid of facing her and, despite feeling so apologetic towards her, he couldn’t say that he was truly sorry. He returned because he was worried about her. In-woo is on the verge of crying, but… must… resist… the… temptation. He tells that it’s all nonsense.

Disclaimer: I couldn’t paraphrase this conversation. To do so would be a crime, so here it is.

Hye-ri: You were the one I thought of when I was having the most difficult time. When I couldn’t say anything to anyone, but had to keep it to myself. When I felt like I was going to die, because it was so hard for me, I wanted to tell you. I had to tell you. You disappeared. The one person, who I came to trust the most in the world, suddenly disappeared.

In-woo: Stop this. What’s wrong with you? Have you lost your mind? I don’t like you, it’s over! I told you to get a hold of yourself. Do you really want to tell me those kind of things right now?

Hye-ri: Yeah, I do. This isn’t the only thing I want to say. I have a lot of things I want to say to you.

In-woo: Ma Hye-ri, what’s wrong with you?

Hye-ri: The person who put me through hell and back… I love you, you bastard.

(pause for fangirly squeal)

Hye-ri: Didn’t you understand? Do you want me to say it again?

In-woo: Don’t… Don’t.

Hye-ri: I love you, you bastard. That’s why even if you have to hurt me in the future, just tell me that you’re sorry. Tell me right now. I know, I won’t be able to live until I’m 77. I feel like I’m going to die of cancer because of all the stress you’ve caused me So, how do you expect me to live until 77? I’ll never be able to find another man who loves me. The pain you’ve caused me is so great, that the remaining scar will be so ugly, that no one is ever going to be able to love me. That’s why… That’s why I want you to tell me that you’re sorry. Then I’ll be able to live again, when you do. If it hurts, I’m going to be hurt anyway, don’t say that everything as fake, okay? Lawyer Seo, say you’re sorry, tell me you’re sorry.

At this point, they’re both crying. He wipes away her tears, still not being able to tell her the magic forgiveness spell. Instead of that, he agrees to her words grabbing her round the waist…

Not forced kissssssss, yeaaahhh!

Can love conquer it all, kaedejun?

Personal comments

(For crime understanding purposes, a chart was made with all the involved parties and the facts up until this episode. You can find it here. Enjoy!)

If you’ve read my previous comments about forgiveness, I was hoping for a somewhat longer period of “I still hate you”. Instead of that, here I am, recapping a kiss and an “I love you” in the same episode that featured Hye-ri’s post-deception state of mind. Talking about fast pace.

No matter what, I found the progression from love to hate to love natural and well explained. Of all the intensity (and face to face ¬¬) around this episode there are two moments that are the core of it. I think that they’re the same you’re thinking about: the bomb inside the bomb and the last monologue by Hye-ri. The contrast between his secrets (which are eating him up) and her hyeristical openess (that has been helping her all along the drama), is both hard to avoid and delightful to watch and analyze.

We’ve already talked like A MILLION TIMES about In-woo’s character, so I’ll just take what this particular scene tells us. After explaining Hye-ri about his plan and past life, he leaves us with an unsettling feeling when he refuses to say that he’s sorry. How could it be, right? He’s done a bunch of bad things to her, the person who, after all, is a victim just as he is. But the catch here is really subtle, what’s said behind the words is what counts.

In-woo IS sorry, I’d dare to say that he’s completely burdened by what he’s doing, but he can’t go back. He’s so into his promise to his father, that he can’t simply forget that and leave with Hye-ri for some butterfly catching. He’s made her an important part of the plan; if he told her the truth, all his efforts would be lost. That’s why this episode is well constructed as a whole: we get the full story behind his revenge plan before the I’m sorry part (we could reflect on sincerity with Jung-nan’s confession, too). Who would be able to forget about a promise made to that kind of unfairly imprisoned father? I know I wouldn’t. And then, when everything seemed lost (I was starting to hate the guy!), we found out that the fact that he can’t say it face to face (thank God! Not a seventh face to face!), doesn’t mean that he doesn’t feel it (from the very beginning!). How hard must that be, huh? To be conscious about your wrongdoings and not being able to go back because of another greater purpose. He let his plan and his true feelings get entangled, that’s why he had to push her away from him being harsh, cold, uncaring and a complete jerk. I find it heartbreaking, he’s not enjoying what he’s doing anymore, he doesn’t find it funny as before, he’s fulfilling his filial duty which he is convinced will bring him down in the sentimental area (choosing between his love life and his father is a tough one).

Then, we have Hye-ri’s confession. Wow, that’s what is was thinking while watching and WOW while typing it for the recap. How can a couple of words be so deep?

There are so many things to be said about this final part which lead to that kisssssssss. When I used to fight about In-woo’s character, I said that he had to redeem himself, remember? Well, I was wrong. He’s not redeeming himself (at least, until now, who knows what will happen next…), she is trying to redeem him, being the light at the end of the dark tunnel he was walking through. She’s saying:

Hye-ri (superliminal-like monologue): I know that this process will hurt me as it’s been doing up until this point, because, who am I kidding? I’m prosecutoring my dad, what the heck?! The law would even allow me to leave the case, right? I don’t care because I want to find the truth, I want to help you. I’ve become a better professional and a better person thanks to you, your advice and constant help. You came to me as a manipulative idiot and the fact that you honestly cared for me took you by surprise. I’ll be there for you just as you were for me before, because I love you and I know you’re sorry, even when you can’t still confess it openly. If you tell me that you’re sorry for involving me in this damn case in the first place, I’ll be there for you. If you tell me that you’re sorry for asking me to do something that’ll hurt me, I’ll be there for you. Just don’t go away, so when we finish with all this mess, we can sort out our differences and probably start a not-so-sick relationship.

(Obviously, the writer’s words were more delicate, I know, that’s why one is a drama writer and the other a proletariat recapper 😛 )

Oh, this is LONG. So I’ll wrap it up confessing that the ending of this drama is still a mystery for me. There are lots of things to be resolved, the crime is not even close to be explained, the leading relationship could go anywhere, the Wonder Woman coupon (future plot device to get them together?)… And there are only three episodes left! What I’m sure about is one thing: I’ll miss Prosecutor Princess. A lot.

@Denali
lol about ur comment on the kiss.. actually, i also agree with you that it was an "awkward kiss" and it wasn't the best aesthetic kiss out there (PT kiss=wow) but i think they are too conflicted and overwhelmed with their emotions at the time to really think about the kissing and their enjoyment of it.

or like miriamDream of viikii put it in a more eloquent way below (her whole post can be found at the link in comment 46, this is just a cut"
"From what I can read around the web people have all kind of opinions/reproaches about that kiss. SIW has once more force himself on MHR?!? His body position is weird? He lifted his leg like a girl? Etc etc.

So, first thing first, first and most important component in that kiss is emotional state of those two. [...]

Yes he is “eating her face”, but that’s not the point here.

Yes, the kiss is forceful, but not taken by force! What’s the difference? If you do not know there is no point in trying to explain :)

Their mental state, is what makes the kiss – THE KISS.

It is not meant as a declaration of love and future lets-be-together plans. Quite the opposite, from the very start of the kiss they are bout painfully aware it is meant as closure to the last part of their life. SARANDESENA ANDESENA… or have ever you spell that...LOVE THAT CAN NEVER BE…

It is MHR who breaks the hug after the kiss first, it is MHR that leaves that bench in the yard first. Why? Like I said, she is fully aware of what that kiss was. And how much it pains them bout. Since it was SIW who cross the line - for her sake – in kissing her, now, it is her turn - to let go of him.

So, where do we go from here?

I use to compare SIW and MHR to two cars running toward each other on collision course 200 mile an hour with bout cars breaks broken. Massive-bloody-crash being inevitable outcome.

So, now where are they? Hm… let’s keep it in same field and have them just change transportation vehicle
… and compare them to two trains, driving along each other on parallel tracks, always aware of each other presents, always able to see each other, alternately changing ones speed to be the “one who is looking” and the “one who is lookt at” always near one another but never be able to meat and touch each other.

Yes, the kiss was meant as closure, but in the same time they have cross the line, and once again our boy just like the first time has opened yet another Pandora’s Box. Up to this point (and by that I mean writing this comment) I never once, not for a minute considered the possibility of SIW MHR “getting together, as in- yeeea baby - getting together” :) before big ending, after some time finale, and even then I had only kiss in mind. But now? I wonder?"

sorry, the cut was longer than expected... but she's awesome!

@aberdeen_angus
thanks for liking my comment, i'm just ranting what i think. lol. and i like ur long comments... they are really fun to read, the longer, the more i get to have fun. lol.
and i agree with what u wrote to Amg1 and about different opinions. and yeah, we're all having fun and i'm going to miss debating too! i had NO idea PP would lead to such discussions.. if anything, i anticipated CU to generate such a response (well, it does too..)
and thanks for voting!! yay... let's all be 12 yrs old if PP can give us so much fun!
and lastly ROTFL, LOL, XD "I was made for you IW haters" hahahahaha
glad u corrected this. ^^

aberdeen_angus,

Amazing recap. Thank you so much.
And the chart!!! Seriously this is obviously the first time a Kdrama needs a chart to figure out all the incidents and character relations ROFL. This chart is GOLD ^^

Though I'm a loyal HR-IW shipper, I really like the slap scene, LOL. It came from nowhere and just showed how forward our HR is. I love her.

Love your and kaedejun's recaps.

@ the "IW is a socipath or not" debate:

All I have to say is this: actions speak louder than words. And I choose to interpret every action he makes. Every hand grab may have anger behind it, but it comes from a place of hurt and love. Every stalker-y move comes from the fear and hope that his plan will go well, and it changed to simply wanting to make sure she's ok

@ denali and the shoes

I think you got it right - I do think that her going barefoot is her at her rawest and most natural state. She can't hide behind anything anymore. She is who she is, and as that HR, she REALLY wanted to slap IW. Then when she puts on her heels, she's back as the hour who needs confidence and strength. Yep - you pretty much got it right.

I regret to say (in general) that I do not what happened at OT - I heard it obliquely referenced at soompi. However - happy fighting!? :P

Very good recap !!!
You really did a good job !!! I loved the way you called him "JERK" !!! It was my feeling too but still knowing his heart was aching for HR.
Very witty comments as usual !!!^^ HWAITING !!!
@v 52: YOU REALLY GOT IT RIGHT!!! when I saw the comments about the kiss, i saw that some people missed the fact that HR acknowledged the fact that this realationship could not be !!! I really loved the way you expressed your comment !!! HR wanted a "sorry" , he gave her a kiss( once again he got over the fence to hurt them both : I love you but I can't" . IW drunk scene was really heartwrenching, when the doors of the elevator got closed, they made a focus on HR whole body and it gave me again the thought: it's the last time they are meeting !!

lol... i'm flattered u thought i was right but i only wrote the crappy first part of comment 52...
the good part that you loved, i have to give credit to miriamDream of viikii for it... (i did put quotation marks and said it was a cut from her post but maybe it's not clear?)

@kaedejun
awesome analysis about actions!!! and shoes too.
do u mean that that you do not "blank=know?" what happened in OT? if that's it, i can tell u as a participant of it, and as an IW shipper, i can't lie and say that it's all joy... i get pretty drained sometimes just reading the IW haters comments (and there are a lot...supah, epyk, janna, Amg1). just the mere thought of how much i want to say about that and refute their opinions (A LOT) makes me exhausted. but then my want to defend IW as a non sociopath gives me a boost and i end up writing walls of text...and then iw haters write and then it's pages long of debates. lol. but then, it's quite fun too cuz it makes me think and the strife we're having is really amusing to think of... so yeah, conclusion is "tiring but happy fighting" :)
i've also read the comments about OT in soompi and how you thought better to not go there anymore... lol. i have to admit that i'm tempted to do the same but then, i really can't resist having my piece of mind expressed. ha.

and yay for couple awards!! but wonder if they'll get it... since PP is not that popular.

actually a lot happened. some of iw haters or sj lovers quit watching PP after ep 12 (altho they are still active in the debate), we had an interesting and philosophical discussion with Amg1 involving redemption, buddhism, christianity, western/eastern culture, filial sons, and other such topics XD... it's funny how most of the longest comments on OT are about PP. mine are particularly long altho i try to make them short. really, i do.

i kept replaying the kiss scene even though there were so many recaps of their KISS. i think the debates on dramabeans between some users are too intense for me even though i do enjoy reading them now and then. anyways i'm waiting for your RECAP ON EPISODE 14, which was very good as well other than the kiss.

regarding park shi hoo, what can i say? he's just pretty fine! his character in this drama i think transformed him into a different actor altogether. he's great and he's really great at portraying the depth of his character. i think i'm in love!

At first I did no like this drama. Because when I read the plot and the first episode it didnt caught my attention. I didnt read the following episode I just browse the picture but when the of 10th & 11th episode recap came out, man I just cant let go it really got my attention, the revenge and the love thing of In woo towards Hye Ri wooohoowww damn that sweet and so masochistic... hehehe....

For now on this drama is on my watch list or should I say my drama recap reading list second to Cinderella sister... I dont have time to watch this drama because of my work... so i just read the recaps of korean dramas I folowed... And I realy want to give thanks to this website/javabean, the writer and the entire behind javabean....

I seldom cry while watching dramas. However, this episode really got me sobbing unashamedly away. It's show the intensity of feelings of both the leads acting in this show.. I am impressed by KSY's acting as this is the 1st time I encounter her. But for PSH, this character of IW suits him perfectly,,as though the writer created IW with him in mind. I totally agree with AA that PSH is not attractive. He may not be dashing in looks, but he certainly has CHARISMA! For those of us who can't get enough of his dimples and killer-smiles, we can rewatch this show or watch FAMILY HONOR which is the show that launches his career. This show was a big hit in Seoul and was No.1 nationwide for many weeks. I am now re-watching .it while waiting for PP. His character was naughty and cheeky while the lead actress was shy and gentle, what a couple. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed! PSH, fighting!

i can't help cracking up while reading the "KISS" comment
it's funny how someone said IW kissed like a girl b/c he raised his heel
hahahahha LOL
(i actually wish HR was the one who raised her heel, but even if she didn't ... i understand)

i mentioned it in soompi that they could not care about their kissing position (we're talking about the real life, not the drama)

Let's say IW & HR's situation was real
Their kiss was passionate just because their enormous flooding of emotion at that particular moment.
HR just found out about IW's identity, his plan of using her all along, his seduction (to coach her thru the murder case, may not intentionally to mislead her to have feeling for him) and his betrayal ....
IW has this guilt toward HR for using her and lied to her from the beginning, his obliged promise to his late-dad, his love for HR, his 15 year long of anger-based-life purpose .....
SO each has a pandora box of their own.

When HR came in to IW's apartment and confront his feeling and confess her own .... they all finally laid their heart bare for each other
in other word ----> THE VOLCANO HAS JUST ERUPTED, and there's no time to do anything except KISS ASAP

1. Their kiss is passionate simply because the emotion is too much to handle with just words .... they just had to kiss to vent them all out.
2. Among the emotion they felt, LUST is not 1 of them
They love each other ... BUT with their emotion of the moments, there's no space left for lust

So I think the KISS was indeed passionate in its own way, and can't be classified as "Not Passionate" just b/c there's no lust involved

For aside note:
I wish their kiss position was even MORE WEIRD than they already did
Why??? so they could trip and fell over each other
That would be BAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!

@ amg1

I think you're entitled to your own opinions about In-woo's character and i find some of the debates enjoyable to read. After passively reading, i decided to add in my two-cents.
I only have one issue with your analysis and that is your use of the word "sociopath." I think you throw around the word rather liberally to describe his character. A sociopath is a general term for describing someone who has antisocial personality disorder.
Here's a formal summary of the illness:
"Antisocial Personality Disorder results in what is commonly known as a Sociopath. The criteria for this disorder require an ongoing disregard for the rights of others. Some examples of this disregard are reckless disregard for the safety of themselves or others, failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors, deceitfulness such as repeated lying or deceit for personal profit or pleasure, and lack of remorse for actions that hurt other people in any way."

Any normal person can be manipulative and pretend to be someone they are not. What differentiates a sociopath from a normal person is that they feel absolutely no remorse for their actions and they also do not feel ties to any person. Everyone is a tool for their manipulation.

"They appear to be incapable of any true emotions, from love to shame to guilt. They are quick to anger, but just as quick to let it go, without holding grudges. No matter what emotion they state they have, it has no bearing on their future actions or attitudes."

In-woo doesn't carry these traits. If i saw In-woo from Ma Hye-ri's point of view, maybe i could see him as a sociopath, outwardly charming, but inside a master manipulator who has no regard for anyone's feelings. However, the director shows us In-woo when he is completely alone, when he has no reason to pretend to be something he's not. And at those moments, In-woo does show remorse. He shows that he cares for Hye-ri and he's sorry that he's hurting her.

Also, If In-woo was a sociopath, he would not have had any emotional ties to his father and no reason to pursue revenge or follow through on his promise to his father. He would just be manipulating hye-ri for the fun of it. This is obviously not the case. Anyone can tell that In-woo really loved his father and it hurts that he can't fulfill his promise.

And with regards to your analysis:
and the fact that he refuses to admit and say “I am Sorry” is because “HE IS NOT” How do I know that for certain? Because if he was “TRULY SORRY” he would have stop what he was doing, but he did not and that is the”Main Reason” why YOUR heart was so unsettle, because she is the one trying to play his “REDEEMER” while in his mind he is not asking to be redeem, and that my friends is one of the traits of a “SOCIOPATH”, maybe he will change in the future but as for right now he remains the same!!!!!!!!!

If he was an sociopath, he would have said " i am sorry" to her even if he didn't mean it. Why? Because if his image is redeemed in Ma Hye-ri's mind then she can continue to be manipulated by him.

I'm watching 3 dramas at the same time, but may i say this has outbeat the rest of the two. Cinderella Unni is abit heavy...never miss an epi without sobbing. Personal Taste ..well, what more can i say except for the fact that the drama is being lead by 2 beautiful actor/actress...but THIS! This is just AWESOME!!!! i started watching with minimal expectation (hahaha...yea, im only there to enjoy KSY's wardrobe!) but little did i know~!!! The plot just suck me in weekly and now may i say...Ma Hye Ri rocks! So does Seo In Woo...he's the most difficult to read among all the male leads for the Wed/Thur drama. I'm definitely adding this drama to my KDrama DVD collection!!!

Thanks for the recap! Am anticipating for epi 14!!!!!!!!!!!

@a_angus, that was hilarious, I wouldn’t have noticed the ‘’I was made for you, IW haters!’’ had you not corrected it.
Your attention to detail in your recaps is gold incl. The Crime Chart, I think this plotline was desperately needing one.
I have stopped watching the episodes but will keep reading the recaps (the couple that remain). I may have issues with one facet of the storyline or one particular character but I’m still weirdly spiritually bound to this drama, dammit! Haha!

Also, I don’t have a soompi account but may need to get one, didn’t know Team SJ’s musings will draw that kind of attention. Instead of seeing us as haters, please see what unifies all of us PP viewers (lovers) – our love for our heroine; Hye-ri-ya!
And please, it’s all just good, clean fun, it isn’t meant to offend anyone. Although I don’t find any of Team SJ’s arguments against IW entirely baseless either-- and vice versa. ‘Happy Fighting!’

aberdeen_angus...you're outdoing yourself with this ep.13 recaps, my dear!!! that crime chart for one,was such a comprehensive way of analyzing the whole scenario & each characters' participation!!! Loved it!!
...of course, I'm still & will always be an IHHYE or SHI_SO fanatic...no matter what direction the finale episodes may lead to!!! One thing's for sure...the PP writers are excellent in surprising us with twists & turns that even seasoned drama-watchers like us, still get stunned with their unpredictability!!! Case in point...the many "theoretical" predictions on how the story would unfold by many of us...yet the writers still manage to pull new surprises EVER SINGLE EPISODE!!! Fact is, I've never seen as much interest & never-ending debates on a single drama..as I have witnessed with PP...& I'm just LOVING IT!!!
...as I said before, I'm so invested emotionally with this story & would hate to see it end two days from now...
...keep up the good work...

can't believe PP is ending. this is the last week... TT. CS still has 3 more wks and i think PT ending this week is appropriate and good for the drama. as for PP, i know an extension might hurt it but i don't want it to end!! what will happen to my wed/thurs??

altho if u do go to soompi, there r some pple who do get offended, or rather indignant, at the iw haters opinions... nothing rude tho. lol. it's mainly IW lovers there... haha

@v: yeah, these are the last 3 recaps. It's kinda sad, I had a lot of fun doing this, and it feels like yesterday when I first started watching and writing... Oh, emotional moment is coming! :P Really, I don't know if it's because I'm analysing everything for the recaps or what, but this drama grew on me and I sincerely find it adorable. I'll talk about this particular point in my last comment once the drama has ended, but I guess that the defining factor was how the writers turned a bubbly drama into something like this (a strange mash up between rom-com and suspense).

@dulcedeleche: not only your comment is great, but also your nickname!

@ V
Don't you think so?
I think they should make their kissing position even weirder. that would be fun to watch what they were going to do.

They're just 2 lovebirds who just opened pandora box of their various emotional feeling, and the urge of kissing was ultimately needed to embark their emotional state at the that time (physically: i think they're also too busy fixing their teeth so they wouldn't uncomfortably grind each other's. there's no time to think about the position)

@aberdeen_angus, THANK YOU for dissecting PP with such careful attention to every detail.
I love a drama that emphasize on details, yet does amazing job on the overall ... can't explain well, but PP is my top favorite list among all other k-dramas I've watched so far.
The unspoken words and what lies between & behind words are often too difficult for me to digest ... but you process it so well that i understand PP so much better.

so thank you :)

hehe... is it me or PP is getting more and more popular? and it's so funny how a lot of comments in this section is about how PP went up to take the lead over the other dramas.. wonder if the comments in the other dramas are also like that about their dramas... altho i do watch PT and CS, i dont spend time reading the comments like i do here.. i have to maximize my time devoted to PP... can't get enough of it. ^^ i'm happy PP converted many pple. hope the ratings will reflect that too and go up like it did for ep 14. altho that's not as important as the LOVE it receives.

@aberdeen_angus
yep.. i thought there would be no more comments after yesterday but they are still coming.. ^^ guess the combination of the kiss+clock scene + i love you jerk+ur BRILLIANT recap is working magic.. lol.
and I am SO looking forward to ur comment about this drama in ur next (and last... sniff.. i guess i'm getting emotional too.. ) recap. for me, altho PT is cute and CS is quality, PP is the WHOLE PACKAGE.. it has all elements of entertainment, all given at the right amount to make us go crazy and blended together in an awesome way. and i'll talk more about that when the drama ends too. lol. i so do not want this to be over that i'm considering delaying watching the last 2 ep just to make the experience last longer.. haha.. i'm being silly but i might really do it. "a strange mash up between rom-com and suspense)"= great way to describe this. XD love ur analysis!! and i'm grateful that ur sort of an IWer... i dont know how i would react if a recapper was a IWhater or SJ lover... lol. tho the SJ lovers seem to be taking ur recaps well so maybe i would enjoy that too.. but really, SO thankful ur with IWxHR pairing in this drama.

@yukiyukiku
lol.. i actually agree with you... but really, the idea is HILARIOUS.. if it happens, i think i'm going to burst with laughter, or i might get freaking excited and squeal like a schoolgirl. but please, i dont want the last kiss to be like that. perhaps the funny can happen at kiss #3 and then we'll get a kiss #4 for a perfect one? lol. i'm fantasizing. here..
and ur too funny.. :"physically: i think they’re also too busy fixing their teeth so they wouldn’t uncomfortably grind each other’s. there’s no time to think about the position)" XD XD XD

and i second aberdeen_angus... thank you for making the soompi thread alive and moving... i always see ur comments abound there ^^

What is wrong with me? I started this drama like any other k-drama, with no expectations at all (usually I find it best to switch off my brains while watching, or else I will feel disturbed or confused LOL). But now I keep coming back to dramabeans to see if there is a recap and to read ALL the comments.
Damn this drama realy does something on a emotional level, I feel so involved. Soo drama gods if your out there, please let HR and IW have a good ending, or else I will renounce my faith :(
BTW your recaps are awesome, please keep spreading the love. PP Fighting!

@absothe: I'm just like you. I've started watching kdramas not so long ago, and have never been addicted to any of them. But this one, I don't know, it's just as you say "Damn this drama realy does something on a emotional level, I feel so involved"...

Just look at me, I delurked because of PP!

@v: CS might be quality, but I find it too melodramatic (in a way that makes it ridiculous). In fact, I don't find it sad or depressing, it made me laugh in some parts because of the over the top melo. PT is nice, but I don't feel the urge to watch it, it's very very very (and surprisingly) meh. What I found in PP is that it focuses in an extremely well thought story that never fails to surprise us and an episodic structure that keeps on moving forward. You never say "Oh, this was a filler" or "In this episode nothing substancial happened". There's always something important, details, gestures, hints, etc. The characters are coherent (this fact is surprising in kdramas), true to their feelings and well acted. What they say, what they conceal, how the look at each other are extremely meaningful and funny to analyze.

Maybe her dad is not the murderer....

Maybe he was out with another woman?

But it is looking like he is...haha.

wow!! i'm the 98th person to comment.. thanks for the recap.i've actually seen this episode few times already before i read your recap..from the first ep of PP i've been an avid fan..i know that the story is not as similar as the other kdrama. KSY played Hye-ri really well..from the naive, silly fashionista to the more serious and deep prosecutor she did a good job..the confession in the bomb clock and the face to face with In-woo is priceless..i cried so much while watching this part..than you again, i really enjoyed your recap..well done!! :))
