You’ve Fallen For Me: Episode 4
by | July 7, 2011 | 193 Comments

I like it much better this week, now that we’ve gotten past the introductions and into the musical, with crushes, competition, and egos galore. It’s a familiar setup, but if you’re a fan of musicals like me, there’s no business like show business. Bring on the divas.

EPISODE 4: “Towards Tomorrow”

Shin looks out from his perch above the passing students, and then a smile breaks across his face. He spots Kyu-won, ripe for servant abuse. How much do I love that torturing her makes him happy? It’s kindergarten-stage flirting, but it’s adorable.

She tries to ignore his call but gets caught red-handed, so off she goes, to get him a cappuccino “before the foam dies.” Jerk.

She runs into Yoon-su, and they walk back together, Kyu-won wondering if this is the girl that Shin likes, while she’s thinking the same thing about Seok-hyun. Yoon-su asks if Kyu-won knew him pre-musical and she says that she did, but doesn’t elaborate.

I kind of like this totally awkward love square. It makes for a boatload of drama, that’s for sure, since half the sides are teachers. And now the musical throws everyone together in a competitive environment where they have to see each other all the time, all the while pretending not to be in love with someone who’s clearly in love with someone else.

She delivers Shin’s cappuccino, making sure to get her money back, but when she doesn’t have the change to give back to him, he insists on adding interest. (It’s like adding interest on a 20-cent loan.)

On his way out, he tosses out one of his trademark random questions: “Do you sing well?” and then walks away before she even has the chance to answer. He really is the prince of non-sequiturs.

Seok-hyun gets a talking-to from his sunbae about casting Ki-young and “that Gukak Girl,” and Seok-hyun pointedly tells him that her name is Lee Kyu-won. I like that his casting her poses a challenge and a threat; it ups the stakes and makes me want her to prove them all wrong and stomp all over it.

She shows up to her first rehearsal and gets immediately antagonized for being a nobody who has some kind of pull with the director. Hee-joo of course takes personal offense, especially when Seok-hyun announces that she needn’t assume that the starring role is hers. Aw yeah.

Kyu-won squeaks her way through rehearsals, singing off-key, and Hee-joo follows her out to tell her that she doesn’t consider her a friend, and to stay away from Shin, who “likes someone that you can’t compete with.” Ugh! Squash her like a bug!

Not one to be talked down to (which I love), Kyu-won tosses back: “I don’t consider you a friend either. And Lee Shin? I wouldn’t take him if you gave him to me.” And with that she walks off, leaving Hee-joo stewing. It’s so satisfying that she speaks her mind instead of being some victim. And I love seeing Hee-joo squirm.

Bo-woon drags Kyu-won to Catharsis because Jun-hee is singing tonight. Aw cute. (It’s the song posted above.) Afterwards Kyu-won realizes that she left her sheet music at school so she heads back. She overhears Shin answering a call in a panic and then rushing off.

The call is from Yoon-su and he races over to her studio thinking that she’s injured. But it turns out that she’s just locked herself in. And he’s the only person you could call? He brings a security guard to open the door for her and walks her out, giddy that he got to rescue his crush. Oh puppy.

Kyu-won sees him walking Yoon-su out and notes it curiously.

Shin goes to see Dad, who is heartbreakingly ecstatic to see Shin there to visit him, out of the blue. He tells Dad about the dance teacher that he has a crush on, and Dad says that he liked a woman once. She was his friend’s girlfriend, and he even married someone else to try and forget her.

But he couldn’t, so he stole her away anyway. Shin asks if he ended up living with her. He says no. Without betraying that he knows, Shin says with a smile that he lived as a bad person. Dad agrees and tells Shin to live differently.

Looks like the original boyfriend in question was none other than Kyu-won’s dad (wow THAT’s not complicated or anything), who comes to see Shin’s mom that night. He seems to be in love with her still, which is epic badness. Someone please stop him.

Shin decides to do the musical, buoyed by his latest encounter with Yoon-su. Man, he’s got it bad. His bandmates are surprised to hear that he actually wants to do school-related things, and Jun-hee guesses that it has something to do with Kyu-won. They tease him while he denies it fervently.

Kyu-won shows up for dance rehearsal and this time it’s worse, with one of the older girls outright bullying her. Push comes to shove, literally, and somehow Hee-joo ends up in the fight as well, and all five girls end up on the ground in a mess of a catfight.

Seok-hyun makes them kneel with their arms raised, and Kyu-won complains that he’s punishing them like they’re grade-schoolers. He points out that if they act like kids, he’ll punish them like kids. Touché.

Yoon-su gets almost forcibly invited to dinner by her sunbae, and then comes across Seok-hyun flirting with Kyu-won.

Kyu-won is still upset and he just teases her good-naturedly, and pretends to fix her messed up hair. I love that he instinctively always pets her like a dog or something. It’s so cute. She looks up at him, “You’re messing with me, right?” Hahahaha. Why are these two so adorable?

Hee-joo comes out and latches onto Shin’s arm, which of course he rejects coldly. She spins around and tells him that Yoon-su was madly in love with Seok-hyun, and that she left him to go to New York and pursue her dream. Interesting then, that he’s the one who succeeded out there while she ended up back here because of the injury I presume.

She points out that the musical’s story is about Yoon-su. Shin turns back to tell Hee-joo that he can see now why she’s always alone and has no friends. Ouch. But true.

He then comes upon Yoon-su and looks at her, looking at Seok-hyun, looking at Kyu-won. It’s the backwards version of their love square, or… the same but starting with Shin this time. I think this is going to be a common feature. We’re gonna need a name for it. Unrequited Gaze Tag? Love Square Relay?

Shin goes straight to Seok-hyun to announce that he’ll be doing the musical, and then stops him to ask, “Is it fun, turning the woman you loved into a joke? I can see now why she left.” Geez, kid. He stops to add that he likes Yoon-su, just to make things clear.

Seok-hyun laughs to himself, because that’s the only thing you can do when some kid comes at you like he’s in a melodrama, all out of nowhere with big declarations. He chuckles that Yoon-su’s popularity is through the roof as always.

He rushes to the hospital to find his star Ki-young laid up with a fractured leg. It means he’s out for a month. Makes me wonder if he got hurt half on purpose.

Kyu-won comes across Hee-joo practicing late into the night, and her bitter words the other day about how Kyu-won is taking a spot that other people sweat for, start to sink in.

She comes to school the next day, cappuccino in hand, but Shin doesn’t show up to his usual spot. She leaves the coffee there and he finds it waiting for him when he arrives with the note: “This is Lee Shin’s coffee. I’ve spit in it.” HA. He looks at it with a smile.

She stops by later and sees the coffee gone, and smiles, only there’s a random other guy up there drinking the same coffee. It bugs her even later, wondering if Shin got his coffee or not. Meanwhile he refuses to share his spit-coffee with anyone. Aw, the coffee love.

Kyu-won tells Seok-hyun that she thinks she should quit the musical. He wonders if it’s because Shin isn’t around, or because she’s become an outcast, but she tells him that it’s because she feels like she’s wronging the people who really want to do it. She turns her focus back to her upcoming gukak competition.

But Seok-hyun isn’t about to let her go that easily, and decides to play the Shin card. He finds Shin and drags him into Kyu-won’s classroom, which tickles me to no end—these two, stalking her.

He tells her that she needs to do the musical, and she should just work harder if she’s not up to par. Seok-hyun: “I didn’t want to use this tactic, but… Shin wants to do the musical. He can’t unless you do.” Hee. Love him.

He leaves them to suss it out themselves, like an evil instigator. Shin doesn’t budge from his apathetic stance though, and simply declares that he’s going to do the musical no matter what, so she’ll just have to figure out her end.

He isn’t a complete dummy though, and tells her that she can’t outdo Hee-joo anyway. He talks Hee-joo up, purposely goading her and making her defensive. That raises her hackles and she insists that she can do it if she works hard, and he pretty much laughs in her face.

She asks why he wants to do the musical so badly anyway, and he tells her, “Because there’s someone I want to see.” It now dawns on her that he might be talking about Yoon-su. Really? Only now it occurs to you? She shakes her head in disbelief.

Seok-hyun brings the musical script to Ki-young, who still refuses to participate. Seok-hyun tells him, “You may have given up on yourself, but I haven’t given up on you yet.” I don’t know who’s more bull-headed, between the two, but I’m behind Seok-hyun on this one.

On his way home, he stops by a jewelry store and picks up a necklace that catches his eye. Probably for Yoon-su, but he doesn’t say.

Kyu-won mulls it over and then decides to come back to the musical, and Seok-hyun laughs, “She didn’t listen to me but…” Yeah, Shin’s smarter than you on that front. You should’ve tried reverse psychology too.

Kyu-won shows up to dance rehearsal and the air is even worse now, and the other girls knock her around and trip her. Seok-hyun yells that practice is cancelled and sends everyone out without another word.

Yoon-su asks him what’s so special about Kyu-won, and tells him that it looks like he’s giving her special treatment, even in her eyes. Without skipping a beat, Seok-hyun turns it around on her: “Are you jealous of her? Even if you are, you shouldn’t show it.” Oh, dayum. He’s got a really cold streak.

He then takes the five girls on an angry field trip, to see a group of musical actors in rehearsals. He tells them that these people are trainees, and have yet to even set foot on the stage. Can they say that they’re better than these guys?

Awesome. I was waiting for him to school these girls and knock them off their high horses. He singles them out, one at a time, even Kyu-won, and sets their egos back to square one.

Kyu-won takes his advice to heart, and heads straight to school, where she practices late into the night. Yoon-su finds her there and smiles to see her working so hard, and helps her out. Aw.

Shin comes by on his nightly visit after a concert, and happily watches the two of them, though he’s clearly reacting to seeing Yoon-su so happy. The next day he sees Kyu-won stumbling her way to school with sore legs, and offers her a ride on his bike.

She gets so absorbed in the fantasy of riding on Shin’s bike, all rainbows and hearts, literally, that she doesn’t even notice the crowd gathered around them when they arrive at school. She opens her eyes to see angry girls everywhere, staring at her hugging his back, lost in lalaland like a goof. Pfffft! Okay, that made me laugh out loud.

That day at practice, Kyu-won shows that she’s been practicing, and that she’s finally up to snuff. Seok-hyun smiles at Yoon-su, guessing that she had a lot to do with it. He ponders the necklace and then asks her to dinner that night.

She cancels with her sunbae and invites Seok-hyun over to her place for a glass of wine, and they agree to meet in an hour.

He runs across Kyu-won stumbling home and offers her a ride, which she doesn’t turn down in her hobbly state.

At the same time, Yoon-su sees that Shin is following her on his bike like the puppy stalker that he is. She gets out of the car to tell him to go home, but he hands her a jewelry box instead.

Whadduya know, it’s the exact same necklace, and he beat Seok-hyun to the punch. He takes it to put around her neck…

Which is right when Seok-hyun’s car passes them by, and Kyu-won sees them out her window…

…As Shin leans in for a kiss.

 
COMMENTS

Okay, I’m totally on the wrong ship here and I know it, but I don’t care. I want Kyu-won to be with Seok-hyun So. Badly. He’s so cute with her, I can’t stand it. How can I make this happen? Why does my heart refuse to follow my brain? If Shin has to be with downer dance teacher to make it happen, then I’ll get on that ship too. Gah.

All in all I do really like the bizarre love square of unrequited meaningful glances, mostly because of Kyu-won and the boys. I can’t wait till they start fighting over her instead of Yoon-su. At least she was slightly less of a downer in this episode. Slightly.

I could really do without all the adult Mom / Dad mumbo jumbo with past love lives resurfacing and all that, though so far it’s at least tangential. But I’d pay for it to disappear completely, since it has no bearing on the main story and well, I hate where that’s bound to end up.

Because really, coming into your twenties, finding yourself, following your dreams, potentially doomed love affairs with teachers – that’s all angsty enough as it is. No need to throw in your mom snogging my dad, past or present, yeah? Please Drama, let’s not go there.

What I’m dying to see is Shin and Seok-hyun battling it out on the stage. Can they have an epic sing-off soon? Pretty please?

    • 2.1 hookedonmonix

      I was thinking that too, as I was watching ep 4. I had a moment of thinking they could even go with the shin courts kyu-won to keep her from interfering in yoon-su’s true love route (y’know, once he realizes he can never have her, so all he wants is for her to be happy) It would be easy, since kyu-won is already gaga for him.
      I don’t think Seok-hyun is in any danger of falling for kyu-won, as much as I’d like to see that happening. Although, I do think he’ll always want to protect her and some of those actions may easily be taken by others as having a romantic intention. I suspect it’s more brotherly, though.
      It’s definitely an odd love square. Shin seems incredibly naive to think he has any chance with YS, particularly while she’s teaching at his school. Even moreso because he chases her around on his bike, like a little kid. Her falling for him is infinitely less likely than SH falling for KW.
      Yeah, I’m pretty much talking myself into expecting a Shin protects YS’s love situation.

    The adult mother-father romance reminds me of the You’re Beautiful love fiasco with musical notes. Too messed up for their kids budding romance.

      redefining the word Persistence! I don’t really like the teacher. Why did she have to stop her car and get out to meet him? Just pass him by for goodness sake!
      I bet underneath it all, she’s enjoying the attention she’s getting from the *uber popular student* of hers LOL

      • 11.1.1 tonia

        I kind of agree. I mean she didn’t have to accept that necklace too. And she could have objected from the start when Shin was trying to put the necklace on her. She should have told him no there and then. The kiss for me was really unnecessary.

  16. 16 kdramalover

    I actually want Shin to fall hard panting for the teacher…to realize that all along it was Kyu-won he truly loves! haha by then, she’ll already be in love with KH and it’ll be Shin’s turn to win her heart!

    • 16.1 comics_gilz

      I second your comment… ^^ i want it like that too…!! we could see that KW kind of falling for LS bit by bit…and LS started to smile whenever he tease KW…but we know who LS love as of now and who YS love too. as for SY and KW…they are cute together…but more like sibling to me…so…i want LS to fall hard for YS but rejected flat by her and at the same times, i want KW be more close to SY which make LS feeling jealous bit by bit and makes him realise that he actually love KW more that YS..

    • 16.2 momosa

      Wow…can Shin act that out? Might be too complicated.

      Feel weird about the kiss. We used to have major crush on our teacher(s) but never imagined kissing them. It seems so …yuckie. Maybe Shin’s crush is 100x more intense.

    What? Ki-young shows up in the last episode and makes an impressive entrance, but then he’s hardly in this episode? Aw…. I know this show is mainly about those four in the love-square, but I hope he shows up again and sings!

    Thanks for the quick recap!

  19. 19 junie

    I’m more on rooting for Ki-Young in this drama and looking forward to see him more…MORE! Guess he should have something to do with Kyu-Won, that will be excellent!

    • 19.1 kaleido

      I am hoping that he will get over his issue and be the main lead in the musical. I read from Softy’s blog that the musical is about a love story with 3 people.. so I am hoping it will involve Ki-Young, Kyu-Won and Shin somehow even though Shin supposed to be right now only there to play instrument. If that really happen… and Ki-Young also have feeling for KW, we are getting more than just a love square…

      I am loving the drama right now and the music is awesome… can’t wait for the english sub for this ep…

      and to tell the truth I do love KW and SH to be together.. SH is so cute around her… and I also want to see singing showdown with S, KY and SH… that will be awesome.

    I love love love love love this drama.

    Its about time that my romantic heart starts to rewind to my exciting school days…

    I love it that Kyu won is not a damsel-in-distress type. I love it that she spits in the coffee given to Shin. hahaha…you deserve that man!

    thank you dramabeans for your recap.

    Lets all enjoy watching this drama…reminiscing those days in school…can’t wait for next week.

    I want to see a feisty Kyu Won.

  30. 30 annie b

    Like dramabeans I’m rooting for a Kyu Won – Seok-hyun, in my opinion they’re more adorable than lee shin – kyu won tandem.

    and i want another angle in this drama, ki-young getting encouragement from Kyu-won. let’s have a 5-side love angle… more exciting…

    and yes, PD pyo min-soo downplay the love angle of parents…they had their time…let bygones be bygones.. please…

  31. 31 Moonblossom

    I’m thinking of picking up the drama midpoint later so thank you very much on your recaps!! I like your “square of unrequited meaningful glances” description because it is so very apt and I wonder how many times more we are going to encounter it in this show. Considering that when Shin switch camps, the direction in drawing the quad description is going to get confusing… can’t wat for that day.

    Based on tv ratings, You’ve Fallen for Me is not even at 10%. I really don’t care… whether Koreans love or hate this drama… they’re missing a lot… for me …. I love this drama …. committed to watch until the last episode…

    looking forward to buying the dvds with english subs + OST…

    Bring it on… you’ve fallen for me…i even use this phrase now… I told my boss…”you’ve fallen for my work… hahahahaha…

      @annieb…you and i are the same…although i do care about the ratings because that’s all that matters in Korea…i dont want our HS cast to feel down because of that…
      i really don’t know what’s wrong with those viewers, they don’t know when a good series is right under their noses…
      i too would definitely buy the DVD and the OST…
      wish they can add the ratings for how many netizens are watching this great show…
      of course we like CH too but they’re totally 2 different genres of series…that’s action and this one’s melodrama…

    I also kinda ship Kyu-won Seok-hyun!!! Oh, this is horrible!!! It’s not going to happen, unless the drama pulls a ‘How To Meet A Perfect Neighbor’ But they are so cute and amazing together!!!

    Whatever, I will go down with all the ships!

    C’mon, GF – you KNOW that boat you’re pinning your hopes on is headed to the Bermuda Triangle, right? That pairing has little to no chance of happening- there’s too much “You Are Beautiful” history not to have our two leads ending up together here.
    Plus, I just think there’s too much of an age difference between KW and SH to be readily believable for this teen drama.
    I really want to see Ki-Young have a meaty role here – and his voice is terrific – the pretty doesn’t hurt, either!

      And now that I’m thinking about it, WHY does it look like PSH is being dressed from a GoodWill bin? Horrible wardrobe for her. The dressers may be going for “quirky” but it’s just coming across as “sad/homeless”. Between the bad haircut and the boho clothes PSH’s cute factor is being put to the test.
      :(

        For real, right? I’m glad someone else noticed that, too. But it’s a testament to her cuteness that she can still be a cutie…well, a homeless cutie, at least!

          Thanks U! for pointing that out….whoever is the stylist for PSH is just blah…I get that is the summer and ppl love to wear dresses and skirts but EVERYDAY really?…and also some dresses are not that flattering on PSH and PSH have a nice figure.

    I wish Shin would be the first to fall for Kyu-won though Kyu-won is starting to take notice on Shin…

    I want more Kyu-won and Seok-hyun scenes!!!

    Seems like Seok-hyun has forgiven Yoon-su? or am I understanding it wrongly. WHY SO FAST? Please fall for Kyu-Won, please please please. Why can’t anyone see that Kyu-won is the girl worth fighting for hereee? sobs. I’m saddened by this. Can’t wait for the next episodes!

      the heroine is never noticed first. some other guy has to notice her first and THEN EVERY other guy around the block wants to pee on her to mark their territory.

        sometimes, it’s unappealing to be the lead girl character. just sayin’. :P

      Your thinking is on fast-forward. that will not happen yet. it will be kyu-won and seok-hyun first.

      and there will be ki-young too

    Wow.Thanks for the recap.I just joined the drama crowd yesterday after Ki Young singing.

    However it’s not bad at all.I am waiting for SH and S to battle it out.Kyu Won will always look cute.However the 2 boys are adorable.

    Fight fight fight!

    oh no,I’ve reverted to high school behaviour already?

    Thanks for the quick-cap!

    Btw, I like Gaze Tag – sad and sweet and short.

    Soooo, KW/SH makes a much better story:
    SH sees Shin as a possible rival for KW, and feels he cannot compete against youth.
    Meanwhile, YS loves SH because of the past and won’t let go. That way, Shin can keep his puppy crush on YS.
    Shin considers SH a rival and tries to impress SH by being all manly, which SH thinks he is doing because of KW.
    Meanwhile, KW has a little crush on Shin and goes to SH for love help, who gives bad advice on purpose.

    Finally, KW sees SH likes her likes her and worries that it isn’t possible because YS is so great.

    Keep Shin and his Man of Still face away from uri KW.
    Put a real man with her, SH.
    Let Shin be a noonakiller.

    Shin and KW? No No No No. It’s too much like YAB. He is too much like Tae Kyung. Why do we need another cold, handsome star-type with a buried heart of gold? Why do that again?
    Of course, this is a melo. It would work if Shin could have a horrible debilitating disease, or something.

    Not enough gayageum in this episode.
    We need more gayageum!

    • 43.1 MJP

      LOL! Jomo. You are so funny!!! I dunno… SH is still having the thoughts and eyes for YS. I saw it plain as day when he bought her a necklace and asked her out on a date. If they were REALLY over, why would he be mean to YS. And YS doesn’t seem interested in Shin, other than as a friend/mentor.

      They need to do some quick rewrites on Shin and turn him into a “real man”!

      • 43.1.1 YY

        I think turning Shin into a Real Man will be fraught with difficulties. First he has to ACT. He has to act as though he is acting. I know he’s a terrific actor like you said, Jomo, and is acting like he’s not acting amazingly well, but other ppl who are not as attuned to his true acting abilities like us may not be so readily convinced. Still, I’m optimistic. After all, he’s got great support from his co-leads: Bike and Guitar. He actually frowned while he was guitaring; is that an improvement or what?!!

        • 43.1.1.1 Jomo

          YY
          This is what I noticed about YH’s acting.
          You know how usually after two people interact in a scene, then separate, the characters talk to themselves, as in:
          “I must be nuts!”
          “She’s nuts!”
          “He’s nuts!”
          Or they shake their heads in [fill in the blank] as the camera rests on them so we can feel what they feel.
          NOT with YH, he never gets to talk to himself, he never gets to shake his head in [fill in the blank]. This is SO UNFAIR, seemingly. The Hand Towel got to tilt, and tilt a LOT.
          Why does YH’s face remain unmoving?

          Because his face is so still, there are actual WORDS written on it. Those with the invisible ink glasses can read them, and know his thoughts and feelings. Those special people need to share these secrets with the rest of the world.
          WHO are they? Where are they? Why don’t they tell us?

          I need to know.

            Hahaha! You are all soooooo funny!

            The Man of Still indeed!

            Is YH the same when singing/in concert? :-) I cant believe that….

            Somebody please shake him…shake him up and down and all over, hahaha!

            Wait..I’m a little lost. I just started the show. Silly me, went back to check who YH is. And hahaha….it turns out to be Shin. Now I’m following…

    • 43.2 YY

      Won’t it be great if in the end the Man of Still plays the gayageum? Like a fusion of old and new. As for the noonakiller, hmm…sad noona actually looks like him.She’s got a very STILL face as well….they’ve plastered so much makeup on her face she can’t move it anymore.

    Loving the youthful vibe of the drama. The music’s splendid as well.
    Lol, Professor Yoon-soo can have Lee Shin. I’m rooting for either Kyu-won/Suk-hyeon or Kyu-won/Ki-young (I’m genuinely hoping there will be real interactions between the latter pairing).

     (0)


    • 45.1 rori0711

      i second the motion. Lee Shin and Prof. Yoon soo can have each other for all by themselves but my Kyu won will have Director Seok Hyun and Ki Young.

      Despite age gap, Director Seok Hyun still look soo good. Im pretty sure he will fall head over heels to Kyuwon. Lee Shin, you wait for Ki young and soon you’ll want to kick yourself for taking Kyu won for granted. hehehe

  46. 46 Schmazel

    I’m a wee bit confused.

    So, Kyu Won’s dad and Shin’s dad were friends and bandmates. The girl that Shin’s dad ‘stole’ = Kyu Won’s dad’s GF = Shin’s mom?

    And, Kyu Won’s mom is nowhere in this picture, am I right?

     (0)


    • 46.1 rori0711

      that is very much obvious.
      nothing has been said about Kyuwon’s mother till now right? that bothers me

       (0)


    • 46.2 Cabbage

      I’m also terribly confused.
      Is Mrs. Shin the woman he married to forget the girl? Or is she the girl he stole?
      Because, either way, her relationship with Mr. Kyu Won is strange. If that’s her ex, she’s way too careless with her friendship and phone calls. But if they’re friends, then he was in love with a woman in love with a man in love with some other guy’s girl. Which may be why Mrs. Kyu Won left him.
      And what about Mrs. Kyu Won? Maybe she’s the one Mr. Shin loved? Cuz that would mean they’re in love with each others’ wives. Even in a k-drama, that’s weird.

      Unless Mrs. Shin IS Mrs. Kyu Won, in which case everything makes sense, though very angsty. And that makes Shin and Kyuwon siblings. Which is the theory I’m backing, because I don’t feel any chemistry between them at all. Then, she’s free for any ship you’re backing. But at 4 episodes, there should be something shining between them, The only cute moments are when they’re not on screen together.

      • 46.2.1 hookedonmonix

        here’s how I understand it: Daddy KY was dating Mommy Shin. Daddy Shin’s all “I wanna tap that, but she’s my BF’sG” He tries to forget her, but ultimately can’t keep it in his pants and makes a baby Shin. Daddy KY goes off and makes a baby KY. Shortly after making baby Shin, Daddy Shin remembers he’s actually in love with himself and takes off, never to see baby Shin again. Later on, Daddy KY and Mommy Shin become friends (w/benefits? maybe sister Shin is actually sister Kyu-Shin? ha. just ranting)
        I have no clue what happened to mommy KY.

    PSH’s hair looks really pretty… Of course, she does too :)

    I like this series so far but I’m not dying yet while waiting for new episodes. In fact, I think I actually enjoyed this recap a little more than watching the episode… Hopefully it will pick up later ’cause Seok-hyun is starting to grow on me… I need more interactions between the leads D:

    Gahh I really really really loooove this drama!
    Thank you so much for the recap!
    I found seok-hyun and kyu won amusing, but I really want shin and kyu won being together! I hope next week I can see shin start falling to kyu won, and maybe a little kissy kissy scene will be better :D

    OMG…thanks for the recaps! I’ve been waiting all day for this since I went and watched the episode already with no subs, but I still enjoyed it even though I had no idea what they were saying…

    I love how you title the unrequited love a love square relay. That must be how it is. A long relay…

    Loving all of the love stories in here & I totally agree with not adding the parents’ love stories in with the kids. that’s so messy and not necessary.
