My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 10
by | September 9, 2010 | 204 Comments

The recap in which girlfriday dies a thousand deaths. From The Cute.

To everyone’s relief, the separation doesn’t last very long, and our couple spends the entire episode trying to kill me with their cuteness. They pretty much succeed, and truth be told, I’m not too upset about it.

In this episode we have angst, declarations, makeovers, and a transformation from adorable-pants Dae-woong to awesome-pants Dae-woong.


Mi-ho calls Dae-woong to tell him that she has to leave his side. The look on Dae-woong’s face, angry and brimming with tears…breaks my heart.

Dae-woong: Don’t come back! Are you doing this because I didn’t say that I missed you? Last time you left without saying a word, and now you’re going to make nothing but a phone call and disappear? You…go ahead and TRY to disappear like this. Where are you? … Did you follow me all the way to the hospital for my check-up? And how is someone like that going to disappear from my side? Don’t move a muscle and wait right there! I’ll come find you.

Eeeeep! I’m a minute in, and I’m already squealing like a pig-rabbit. Gah! Decisive and manly Dae-woong KILLS ME.

Mi-ho worries that she needs to disappear, and tells herself not to cry, otherwise it’ll rain. I know it’s such a simple metaphor, the tears and the fox rain, but it’s so evocative of mood that I love it. She says that she can come back to Dae-woong when she can stand in front of him proudly, as a human being. She starts to walk away, but then, of course, she doesn’t want to leave…

Just then, Byung-soo and Sun-nyeo show up, asking why she’s there all alone. She’s getting ready to leave, but they insist she come with them to eat some beef. You said the magic word! Off they go, to eat.

Mi-ho hurriedly shoves the beef in her mouth, mumbling that she has to disappear. Dae-woong arrives at the hospital and calls her. She answers, and she won’t tell him where she is, except that she’s eating, and he hears Byung-soo’s voice in the background. She quickly eats one last piece and says goodbye. She schleps down the street, wondering where on earth she’s going to disappear to. She’s fighting with Dong-joo Teacher, so that’s out.

And then, another interruption on her road to Disappearance Town—Grandpa and Aunt Min-sook pull up next to her, and Grandpa apologizes for the misunderstanding and tells her to get in the car. They take her home and feed her more beef, which she eats up in two seconds flat. Grandpa dotes on her and feeds her more, asking Min-sook to pack up some food to take back and share with Dae-woong. Aw. Mi-ho doesn’t answer Dae-woong’s calls, and can’t say no to Grandpa or to beef, so she’s stuck.

Meanwhile, Dae-woong finds out from Byung-soo and Sun-nyeo that Hye-in orchestrated something shady at the hospital today, and that Mi-ho must be acting this way because of something Hye-in said. Nice. I love that characters are told these sorts of things instead of having people suffer in noble silence. Down with noble silence!

Mi-ho leaves Grandpa’s house with bundles of food, so she tells herself dejectedly that she’ll just drop these off at home for Dae-woong, and then she’ll disappear. On her way, she gets stopped by the chicken shop ajumma, who worries that Mi-ho seems so sad. I sort of love that in her attempt to disappear, Mi-ho gets stopped one by one, by all the human beings who are in her life, who keep her tethered to this world. It’s a nice symbolic motif, and a great build-up to Dae-woong finding her.

Dae-woong then does something awesome—he goes straight to Hye-in, to ask her what she said to Mi-ho. She tells him everything, and says that she asked her to disappear, and sighs in relief, thinking that she saved him from some disgusting monster. Dae-woong: “She’s not disgusting, or a monster. And Mi-ho, unless somebody forced her, would never leave my side. I have no intention of having her leave me, so don’t concern yourself with her, or what she is.” Hye-in calls him crazy, and he confirms that he is (yay, feelings!) and insists she just leave them alone.

At home, Mi-ho hugs her chicken leg, pouting to herself that she’s out of excuses now. But she doesn’t want to leave. She cries like a little girl, “Woong-ah, I don’t want to go,” as tears fall. It starts to rain, as Dae-woong talks to Hye-in. He turns around to see that it’s raining outside, as his heart drops.

He runs outside, and calls Mi-ho, who finally answers. Dae-woong asks her to stop crying, but she can’t stop the tears. Dae-woong: “I don’t want to get rained on. You have to stop crying…so I can go to you.” Ack! I swear, if he keeps being this awesome, I’m not going to get through this recap.

He realizes there’s only one way to stop her from crying. Dae-woong: “I…miss you.” She stops crying immediately in shock. Dae-woong: “I miss you like crazy. Stop crying, so I can get to you quickly.” He hangs up, and the rain stops. He looks up and smiles at the sky, and takes off running. Best subversion of rain cliché ever.

Shady Emo Hair meets a shady contact, to get new papers for Mi-ho. He asks him to prepare a house in Japan, and tells him that she’ll be going to Japan in a few months’ time, with this new identity. Oh, we’ll just see about that, Dog Teacher.

Mi-ho sits at home and waits, deciding that she can’t leave now, when Dae-woong’s finally confessed that he missed her. She realizes the only thing to do is to “take care of that woman.” She gives an evil look of purpose. Ruh-roh. Hye-in might end up being dinner!

She finds Hye-in in the parking lot and scares her by moving a parked truck with her bare hands. Hye-in tries to run away, thinking that Mi-ho is here to threaten her, but it turns out she’s here to…ask for a break. Haha. How cute. She tells her everything (unnecessarily, but whatever) and says that she could’ve scared her, but she wanted to do the human thing. Hye-in sees yet another opportunity to turn this in her favor, so she asks if Mi-ho will do anything she asks.

She takes her to Director Ban, and introduces Mi-ho as her friend. She sets it up so that Mi-ho will only be the stuntwoman for the lead role, and only if her “friend” Hye-in is cast as the lead. Sneaky. And a solution I’m totally fine with, since I care not about the movie.

Dae-woong shows up to the studio (with a tip-off from Byung-soo) and walks right in between the two girls and grabs Mi-ho’s wrist (aargh) and stands between her and Hye-in, demanding to know what Hye-in is doing to her. She gets indignant, asking if he’s got it backwards, at which he slides his hand down to hold Mi-ho’s hand. Eeek!

He takes her by the hand and they start to walk away, but Hye-in gets the last word in. She says she’s found that Mi-ho is useful after all, and that she’ll be using her, just as Dae-woong is. That stings them both, and Hye-in walks away, triumphant.

Dae-woong feels really guilty about it, and apologizes to Mi-ho for using her. She says it’s okay—she did threaten to eat him up in return. He says he’s really really sorry.

He helps her prep for the movie, and he tells her to always wear wires even if she doesn’t need them, and to pretend that she’s tired. She fakes being a weak girl, and I love the mockery of that. They go over the script, which is of course a story that mirrors their own—a tragic love story between a woman who gives her heart to a man and disappears, and a man who must endure alone without her.

Mi-ho gets to a point in the script where her character gets undressed in a love scene, and Dae-woong spits out that she’s not doing scenes like that! “You’re just doing the action scenes! Don’t even read that part!” HAHAHA. God, I love his overreaction.

Mi-ho wants to hear him deliver some of the lines in the movie, so he starts to recite:

Dae-woong: At first, when my clothes were wet with your tears, I told myself I would just wait until they dried. But then, the clouds grew bigger, the skies darkened, and rain that blocked my path came down. Rain that can’t be stopped, can’t be avoided, falls down on me…Where do I go? I’ve lost my way. [He pauses as the words become his own.] Though I try to run far, I keep coming back. I want to protect you, and treat you well. I must’ve been rained on…and lost my mind.

Mi-ho leans on his shoulder, moved by his words. He shrugs her off, asking what she’s doing. She says it’s her character’s reaction, and when Dae-woong says that’s not in the script, she says that his last words weren’t in there either. He says, tears still brimming, that he messed up his lines then, and runs away to his bed. Oh, you can’t fool us, you Big Softie Chicken Leg, you!

Mi-ho goes to see Dong-joo, who worries about Hye-in knowing her identity. He presents her with all her new papers to start her new life as a human, but warns her that in order to do so, she has to leave Dae-woong and everyone around him, who know her as Mi-ho. She frowns as the words sink in.

At home she looks at all her new official documents, fantasizing about life as Park Sun-joo: driving, graduating university, having lots of money. But she shuts down her own fantasy, saying that none of that matters if Dae-woong isn’t next to her. Aw.

Rehearsals begin on the movie, but Director Ban is too engrossed in his own love life to be more than grumpy pants day after day, since Min-sook is refusing his calls after the coffee-on-precious-dvd incident. He finally tries one last grand gesture. He invites her to a ceremony where he’s receiving an award, and in preparation, he retires all of his A Better Tomorrow accoutrements, crying dramatically as he says goodbye to Chow Yun-fat. Haha. Oh, the things we do for love.

Hye-in sees Dae-woong and Mi-ho being cute together, and gets all bug-eyed (even more than usual) with jealousy, so she tells Mi-ho not to come to the awards ceremony party. The other stuntmen start paying attention to Mi-ho, trying to bring her drinks to flirt. Dae-woong puts a stop to that right away, with one can of bubbly soda and a flash of his couple ring. Keh, keh.

She asks if he worries about her when she’s around other people, and he starts to say, it’s because she’s so pret—but then catches himself before “pretty.” Ha. She tells him to go ahead to the party and that she’ll meet him there.

When he accepts his award, not-so-Chow-Yun-fat-Lite-anymore signals Min-sook with his silly head roll, and says that he hopes that “someone” will know his true feelings. Min-sook squeals in delight and starts to cry, as Grandpa laughs.

Mi-ho sits at home, dejected that she can’t go to the party, and ends up going out with Dong-joo. She’s sad about missing the party, and rejects his offer for her to become Park Sun-joo when she becomes human. He tells her it’s because she’s never lived life as Sun-joo yet, so he takes her shopping for a new outfit (obligatory makeover scene!) where she picks a brown shirt because it’s her favorite color—cow. He then takes her to a university alumni party that she can attend with her new identity.

Meanwhile, Dae-woong wonders what’s taking her so long, and Sun-nyeo gets drunk and tells Dae-woong that she’s done having feelings for him now, but wants to say goodbye with one last kiss…

She grabs his face and leans in, and Dae-woong has just enough time to grab a neaby squid (HA) to put in front of his lips. He freaks out to Byung-soo to keep Sun-nyeo away, and that she was too close for comfort. Byung-soo thinks he’s overreacting, but Dae-woong says that it’s not him he’s worried about—something very bad will happen to Mi-ho. Hye-in overhears this, and realizes that there’s some connection with physical contact with other women, and Mi-ho’s fox bead.

Dong-joo buys Mi-ho a purse that goes better with her outfit, and even though she hesitates to give up her bag from Dae-woong because it holds things that are precious to her, he tells her that this new bag completes the look, and hands her a wallet with her ID as Park Sun-joo. She enters the party, giving that name.

Hye-in comes up to Dae-woong, asking if he’s still mad at her. Hye-in: “I’m really worried about you. I mean it.” He counters, “I’m worried about Mi-ho. I mean it.” Oh, snap! He goes to find her, leaving Hye-in huffing.

Mi-ho comes out of her party right away, saying that people treated her like the real Park Sun-joo, and it made her uneasy. She tells Dong-joo that when she’s with Dae-woong, who knows the real her, it’s so comfortable, but when she’s pretending to be someone else, it feels like a lie. Dong-joo gives her a passport, saying that she can go anywhere with this. He tells her to leave on the hundredth day, and that he’ll help her.

Director Ban wonders if Min-sook saw him on tv, when she saunters into his office, dressed as Chow Yun-fat Lady. She tells him that she liked everything about him, and that he needn’t give this up for her. They embrace, knocking over all his memorabilia. Heh.

Dae-woong comes home and wonders where Mi-ho is, since he tried the chicken shop and she’s not answering her phone either. He gets up to go find her, but then she walks in, still dressed to the nines. He stops in his tracks, startled at her purty duds, and asks where she went dressed like that. She realizes that she left her stuff with Dong-joo, who tells her he’ll bring them back next time. Dong-joo muses to himself that she needs to forget one thing at a time, just like this. Well that’s not the fastest plan ever, but I see where you’re going with this.

Dae-woong gets huffy about her being out dressed like this, partying with Dong-joo, and wonders exactly how close they’re getting. Mi-ho asks Dae-woong what he’s told his friends and family about her. He hasn’t said anything yet, but plans to come up with a story soon enough. She apologizes that he has to lie because of her.

Dae-woong looks her up and down again, still annoyed about Dong-joo….and then he realizes a solution. He tells her that just like his sharing his ki with another woman is harmful to her fox bead, he can feel that it has the same effect if she’s with another man. HAHAHAHA.

She doesn’t think that’s right, but he insists he can feel it. Oh my god, I’m dying. This is so funny. He says that particularly when she’s with Dong-joo, he can feel something hurting in his chest. Yeah, that would be your HEART, buddy. She totally falls for it, wondering if she’s been physically too close to Dong-joo. Dae-woong: “You were CLOSE?! That’s why I feel this way! At least 5 meters…no, no…10 meters distance from now on!” You’re killing me Show. And I love it.

She puts her hand on his chest, wondering why her fox bead is acting up, and he totally loves it. He directs her, “No, I think it’s…over here…” reveling in the physical contact. Seriously, how can two people be so CUTE? It defies the laws of the universe!

Later that night, Mi-ho looks over her documents, contemplating the huge decision ahead. In his Emo Lair, Dong-joo looks at Mi-ho’s phone, full of calls from Dae-woong. He muses that it’s going to be hard to forget like this. The next day he sets out to return Mi-ho’s bag.

It’s the first day of the movie shoot, and Dae-woong doesn’t have any scenes, but he’s here to watch Mi-ho. In the dressing room, Hye-in tells Mi-ho to leave her ring behind, and when she does, she tries it on herself. Mi-ho catches her and gets it back, letting it slip that the ring was initially Hye-in’s to begin with, which just makes her angrier. Hye-in threatens to harm Dae-woong and the fox bead, in order to harm her.

Mi-ho entrusts her ring to Dae-woong and climbs up on a scaffold to prepare for her first stunt.

Dae-woong gets some bubbly soda for Mi-ho, and when he looks for her, he sees Hye-in from behind in the same costume, and assumes it’s Mi-ho. He goes right up to her, which is when Hye-in swings around and grabs him for a kiss. No!

She plants one on him, and he pushes her away, shouting, “What are you doing?” but it’s too late. Mi-ho feels the pang from her fox bead, and faints, falling from the scaffold…


I love the heightened drama of his kiss with another woman—it’s not just a betrayal or fodder for jealousy, but a matter of life and death. When you raise the stakes that high, it shifts the dramatic weight of everything, which I totally dig.

That’s not to say that I don’t love the jealous bits, because those continue to be my favorite. How awesome is it that Dae-woong is using the fox bead to keep Mi-ho away from other men, just because he’s jealous? Adorable. His growing assertiveness is really a sight to behold, since he started out so pathetic and cowardly. It’s also great that we’re not skipping too far ahead in their relationship, because I like the gradual steps, and seeing them work through all the obstacles. That way, they’ll truly earn each other’s hearts, once they get there.

Once again, all the forthright declarations make my day, as I don’t have to stew over silent noble idiots in this drama. Even that ring, which I thought for sure was going to end up in Hye-in’s clutches, was returned right away, which drew a huge sigh of relief from me, since I know how the Hong sisters are with trinkets. That’s right, pig-rabbit’s hairpin, I’m talking to you. So glad we don’t have to go through a round of Find My Precious.

As expected, I continue to be owned, heart and soul, by this drama. I may have to marry you, Show.

    Am totally jealous. Episode 10 was SO much better than 9!

    • 1.1 girlfriday

      Neener, neener.

      Hoi, hoi!

      • 1.1.1 Lahlita

        Girlfriday, it is obvious that all of the epicness happens in your episodes (sorry, Beannie-unni). Therefore, are you taking requests? I’d like some hoi-hoi in episode 12, please. If that’s too soon, can we at least have a hot make-out session? Dae-woong has become the awesomest awesome to ever awe, and Mi-ho needs to jump that boy already. If she won’t, I wi–she just needs to, OK???

        • girlfriday

          I’ll consult the Drama Gods and see what I can do. This show hasn’t failed me yet!

          And, ahem, get in line sister. Seung-gi is MINE, hello!

          • karen

            girlfriday, you can have cha daewoong… i want Seung Gi..!!!! hahaha

            but i think you have to queue behind me… i am already in the queue at least 2years ago…haha

          • Linh

            I sense a kiss coming in the next episode rather than episode 12. they gotta reverse the harm to the fox bead somehow. 🙂

        • Butet

          “Dae-woong has become the awesomest awesome to ever awe”

          That was hysterical but so spot on.

          Thank you Javabeans and Girlfriday. I adore thee!

          This is just my speculation so imma take a gander at what the future lies within this drama. I am going to assume that right when Woong-ah declares his love for MiHo, he will find out the little secret about the Harry Potter-ish “the other must die for the other to survive” and feel betrayed and even though it’s a misunderstand, considering Miho does not even know about this, he runs into HyeIn’s arms leaving Miho alone in pain. And of course Dr. Beautifully Emo will come along and tell her “I told you so” and that’s when he starts to express his feelings of love for her. And both parties will try to move on but can’t because they see each other during filming (which apparently copies their own love life), so spouts of jealousy will ensue (yay). Then Daewoong realizes he loves Miho too much and will allow himself to die so she can become human though she down rights refuses to allow this to happen and asks Dong Joo to kill her. But then MiHo’s scary grandmother from the painting will come into the picture and will tell Miho that there is away for Daewoong and her to both stay alive, But the only way for them to be together is for Dr. Beautifully Emo to sacrifice himself, Which he will do because he loves Miho and finally understands human emotions.

          • kit

            ohmy o_o
            i am hoping the betrayal part doesn’t happen because i’m enjoying the lack of cliches in this drama, but i can totally see it happening? and the end – even moreso.
            oh yeeeeah.

          • Dara

            I just hope the Hong Sisters won’t sweep everything at the end like Hong Gil Dong.

          • Linh

            i agree w. yu about the Grandma Spirit thing happening but hopefully the other stuff doesn’t

          • lily

            i really like the idea where Dr Beautifully Emo(love this name btw) express his love for Mi Ho , i think that it would give this drama , something different than all the other dramas out there, cuz i think that Dr Beautifully Emo, should get more of a story. love your speculation

    • 1.2 kixbaby

      she also gets the dirty episodes too

  2. Em

    Oh wow, I cant believe how incredibly fast you wrote this recap, I havent even seen this episode yet!
    Now im excited
    Thanks GF!

  3. paco

    OMG. I was not expecting it to be this early! Thanks so much, your efforts are greatly appreciated. I can’t watch the drama because of overwhelming school work.

  4. miniejungle

    thanks girlfriday 🙂 i’ve been waiting for this. viikii doesn’t work and so i can’t watch it at all >.<

    • 4.1 Anonymous

      Dramacrazy.net has the RAW versions. I do that for a quick fix sometimes. 🙂

  5. Lucy

    You are amazing with the recaps. And I’m afraid I’m already engaged to this show. You can’t marry it.

  6. Kender

    “As expected, I continue to be owned, heart and soul, by this drama. I may have to marry you, Show.”

    Replace “Show” with “Lee Seung-gi” and I may have to agree with you. :3

    ..oh, who the hell am I kidding, I’d marry Show too.

    GOD, I loved the ending. It literally made me gasp in horror, and I just sat for a few moments contemplating the full implication of that stolen kiss. The Hong sisters are my goddesses, I swear.

  7. JiHwan

    I laughed out loud when Mi Ho pushed the truck in front of Bug-Eyed Bitter Betty and scared the heck out of her. I would have died of happiness if Mi ho just pulled out all her hair. I know this has been repeated a thousand, million, billion times, but can Shin Min Ah be ANY cuter?? Her and Dae Woong are just tooooooooo adorable

  8. vancouver2010

    “I may have to marry you, Show.”


    I know exactly what you mean, gf! Me too! Me too!

    Thanks for the very fast recap! love you and jb!

  9. hunterbear

    omgg I love you girlfriday! I could kiss your feet in gratitude..you’re so quick…but I’ll try not to be too much of a creepy stalker.

    anyone else find it odd that noona is so perceptive..and unerringly right EVERY single time? Sigh..but it’s alright, I’ve figured out the end, we get rid of noona…and heyy we’ve an extra life. ka ching! we could get rid of noona in several ways.
    1. feed her liver to other gumihos..i’m sure they’ll like it.
    2. feed her to the wild boar.
    3. feed her excessive amounts of meat until her body can’t take the shock.
    4. ahh fox hunter could use his dagger (nah too romantic and fun)
    5. let chicken ajumma have a go at her.
    6….I haven’t thought that far but I’m sure I’ll get there soon enough.

    • 9.1 hunterbear

      oh and the makeover clothes? eh..but those heels…mmm I likey! super cute.

    • 9.2 girlfriday

      If you’ll recall, I laid out a handy method the day I found out she was cast. Just sayin’.

      • 9.2.1 hunterbear

        lol..but miho isn’t about to eat any livers anytime soon. We’ll have to find another gumiho for that.

        • Carmie

          Maybe Dong Joo will do something about her. I don’t think he’s gonna like seeing Miho hurt.

    • 9.3 Doofus

  15. 15 Lahlita

    God, this was The Best Episode Ever. Even watching it raw I was squeeing like a tween at a Justin Bieber concert. I see now why episode 9 was necessary. Why did I doubt you, Show? I apologize.

    I am so in love with Dae-woong and Mi-ho. I don’t even know what to do. What am I even saying? Ah! I hope Show is a bigamist, because there are apparently a LOT of us who are going to marry it.

    @9 hunterbear When you decide on the method you’ll use to get ride of Bug-Eyed Bitter Betty, let me know. I’ll gladly write her oBITCHuary.

    • 15.1 brookeeve

      Justin Bieber? Poor little boy… havin’ bottles and stuff thrown at him.

      This is definitely The Best Episode Ever. I had thought that they had done that already, but they topped themselves.

      I think we should get rid of Bug Eyed… oh wait, I’m supposed to not make you throw up anymore after that Lazarus comment, right? I’ll let you use your own imagination for that.

      • 15.1.1 Lahlita

        Unni, you found me! Yah…you are getting really good at this stalking thing. Brookeeve-unni jjang! 😀

        As for the Lazarus comment, I’m in a such a good mood, nothing can kill my buzz. Half-dead Lazari in orange-juicers? Bring it! Dead Hye-in any way I can get her? Bring it!

    • 15.2 hunterbear

      Don’t you mean polygamist :P? And does the show include seung gi?

      • 15.2.1 Lahlita

        Oops. Polygamist, indeed. 😀
        And, HECK YES, Show includes Seung-gi. However, be very careful not to be too public with your affections. As can be seen from comment #, girlfriday is claiming him. So unfair. First she wants to marry the whole Show, and now she claims the boy. So much for sampling some Seung-gi Sausage. It’s really too unfair. Pffft!

        • girlfriday

          Sometimes Life is just unfair.

          But you can be second in line, you naughty git!

          • :P

            wait…who else is yours GF-unni? Lee Seung Gi, MGIG the show, Gong Yoo, _______________? can i have song joong ki (i f’n luv him)

            @ girlfriday Pahaha, you remember that? You are so good for my ego, GF-unni. I had no idea that calling someone a naughty git would leave such an impression on you.
            And yes, I am naughty. But only on the web where I can pretend that every hot young thang coming out of Korea is mines. In real life I am the epitome of virtue and purity. >snerk<
            Lastly, because your awesome exceeds even Woong-ah's, I shall be second in line just this once. Once. But when Athena comes out, NOBODY had better lay claim to Choi Siwon or I swear, I will let loose a wrath of Biblical proportions all up in this mess. Is all I’m sayin’.

            I think I want to claim a spot in the line for Show/Seung Gi. I assume I am, what, 23675th in line? But hey, I am not above cutsies.

            The ‘Now Accepting Compliments’ header came up as I read this recap (JB/GF+Tae=genius), so I thought it fitting to compliment/ delare my feelings (which hopefully Woong-ah will be doing soon). I love this recap (thanks GF!!!), I love ‘Seung-Gi sausage’ (thanks Lahlita!!!), I love this show, I love Mi Ho and I love Woong-ah.

      No, bigamy is not sufficient to accommodate all of us. Hope that Show is a polygamist instead. 🙂

    “I may have to marry you, Show. ” hahaha girlfriday, this is so classic. I can definitely sense that you have a connection, maybe marriage is not an option but I think it will be a long relationship hehe. Good luck with that!

    Thanks for the recap. I can’t wait to watch the episode.

    • 24.1 serenity

      Me too! I watched it raw and since I do not understand korean I teared up after reading what the dialogues were.

      Thanks GF for this great recap. 😀

  25. 25 atsirk

  30. 30 miss_procrastination

    I am melting just reading about the cuteness…imagine the reactions when I actually watch it!

    Thanks for a wonderful recap!

  31. 31 Yoori

    I was not going to watch this drama at first but then I was like…..Lee Seung Gi. And from the very start it grabbed me. I want to be free of it–not! I love it and I love reading the recaps whether its before or after I watch the episode. Such good writing man. Damn i love it. The honesty just makes it superb. Those noble silence crap is just stupid. GO MGIAG!!!

  32. 32 Nan

    Thank you for the recap. You’re super fast!!! 🙂

  33. 33 yansi

    HOI HOI!!!!

  34. 34 Osi

    Oh the cliffhanger..
    Can’t wait for next week..

    I want to slap that evil hye in..grrr

  35. 35 hmm

    that last scene kind of reminds of The Little Mermaid 😛

  36. 36 danni

    MGIAG never fails to make my day. I usually hate it when angst comes into play in Hong Sisters’ dramas, but I really like how they’ve been playing it out so far.

    Loved the scene where Dae-woong was complaining about how Mi-ho being around other guys made his chest hurt. Oh Dae-woong, to think that I really didn’t like you in the beginning.

    I really thought that Mi-ho was going to run over Hye-in with that truck. *Sigh* Well, I can dream.

  37. 37 dae woongie mihoya

    hate that evil noona….cant she just accept the truth!
    dae woong and miho just belong together!
    upset about the ~kiss~if that was considered as a KISS!

  38. 38 Hajung

    Pooooo you skipped my favorite (funny) part!
    When miho and woong are reading the script, she begins to describe slipping out of her clothes and her undergarment when woong freaks out says shat she doesn’t have to do those parts. And sue says, “why? I like taking baths!”
    Thanks for the super speedy recap! Awesome.
    I hate to be a sourpuss but I was kinda hoping for SKK S before gumiho. I like gumiho better but I need SKK s decals more cuz it’s so hard to understand -.-

    • 38.1 Dara

      Me too, I admired all those subbers of SKKS. The languages there seemed hard to understand and you have to dig more into the history too to come up with proper translations. Even with subs, I go Heh? what?
      Sorry off the topic.

  39. 39 chen

    I have my end of year exams next week but I’m still sinking my teeth into this! Totally the best show of the year! <3<3<3

  40. 40 lyq

    Thanks for the speedy reviews! They really make my day. (: Shin Min Ah and Lee Seung Gi are SOOO adorable together!

  41. 41 Ojou_Belle

    OMO! OMO! Thanks for the recap! I’m so thrilled! It’s just as good as watching the real live show…thanks so much!

  42. 42 sl

    And you want me to wait a week for episode 11?
    Haha, funny. I’ll never make it..:(

  43. 43 crazedlu

    I anticipated a big angst for this episode and prepared for heart break. I never expected this to be this great. The best episode indeed.

    I love how they quickly settle the issues. Totally different from other dramas where issues get dragged on and on. This is so refreshing and I soooo loved it.

    Plus, Dae woong and Miho are just soooooooooo adorable.

  46. 46 teehee

    thanks javabeans and girlfriday for all your hard work!

    i’m just putting it out there, i think miho looks the best in the white dress, hair down, and a great big smile.

  47. 47 lil_ole_me

    i usually hate in krn dramas the guys think its ok to pull, smack, etc the women but this one time i really wanted daewoong to smack hyein

  48. 48 Noypi

    Darn you, Show.. you keep me away from studying… AND I LOVE IT!!

    I just love you too much!! Thank you for the recap GF! All of the side and personal comments, I share with you..

    *SIGH* can they be a real couple? They are too cute.. but umm, of course unless Shin Min Ah can get Seung Gi from you first GF.. xD

  49. 49 Soyachan

    ‘The look on Dae-woong’s face, angry and brimming with tears…breaks my heart. ‘

    That’s what impressed me the most from watching Lee Seung-gi in ‘Shining Inheritance'( beside the awesome acting of stepmother). I really fall in to his charm when he did this kind of expression.

    Thanks for the recap. It’s awesome.

    • 49.1 tyasawa

      =) The same happened to me.. oh those teary eyes and his manly hands lol

    Thank you so much for the recap.
    I think the best thing about this drama for me is the recaps. Each recap makes me want to see the ep. I’m not sure I would really watch or enjoy the show so much if it wasn’t for them. From the recaps, I can saw “OOOOH I have to see that!”

    Lines in which gleeful tear fell or I slipped off my couch:
    “Eeeeep! I’m a minute in, and I’m already squealing like a pig-rabbit.”
    “Seriously, how can two people be so CUTE? It defies the laws of the universe!”

    I have to admit that one thing that makes this show so enjoyable is the honestly and the immediate resolution. I never feel emotionally drained or yanked around. Its completely lovely and refreshing, every episode.

    And look, I’m not a fan of DW or Seung-gi but DW is really winning in this episode! It was the rain comment that did it for me this ep. It was like a father trying to calm down his little girl. I loved it.

    • 50.1 Gloria

      You basically said everything I wanted to say. Especially about the show’s honesty and immediate resolution. (AM SO LOVING THAT OMG) For instance in ep 9 when they nearly missed each other and then they found each other right away! I’ve watched countless dramas and I think that’s the one cliche that bothers me the most (characters barely missing each other).

      Also, I totally second the comment “Seriously, how can two people be so CUTE? It defies the laws of the universe!”
      I think because of this show I now have a girl crush on Shin Minah. haha I was always a fan of Lee Seung-Gi but my love for him grew so much after watching this drama. <3 Before, I kept thinking: "I hope this show is good til the finale." But now I have total faith in the Hong Sisters. It's like they totally upped their game for this drama because they've always been good.. but this is like a whole new level of goodness.
