I Do, I Do: Episode 15
by | July 20, 2012 | 47 Comments

Can these two BE any cuter? Now in our final week we get sprinkled of what we’ve been missing out on these past few weeks. Decisions are never easy in this world and they’re not easily accepted either. If stomping over other people’s feelings for the sake of someone else isn’t considered Noble Idiocy then I’m not quite sure what is.

EPISODE 15 RECAP

After the world’s most heartwarming “Hi,” Tae-kang gently wraps Ji-an’s hands in his and fresh tears fall from his eyes at the sound of Ankle’s heartbeat. Ji-an is touched that he’s moved but is a little uncomfortable about the tears, so Tae-kang explains his son’s heartbeat is so strong. Whoops – forgot that you don’t know yet.

So Tae-kang learns that Ankle is a she and scratches his head – he thought that jokbal cravings meant it would be a boy. His face falls since it means they can’t teach her to play soccer (why not?!) and belatedly mentions that it’s fine that they’re having a girl.

But Ji-an has already picked up on his stunned reaction. Soon they’re bickering about whether he seemed disappointed or not and poor Doctor Yang gets pulled into the argument.

In his office, Eun-sung waits, uneasy and then quickly covers it with a blase attitude when Doctor Yang returns. He gives the slightest of smirks when he hears that the two ended up sniping at each other. When Doctor Yang bombards him whether Ji-an was the woman in the magazine, he flicks him away in annoyance.

Poor Tae-kang gets ditched at the side of the road (“Are you still mad at me?! I wasn’t disappointed!”) and Ji-an heads over to Jun-hee’s store, ignoring Jun-hee’s suggestions about new clothes to accommodate her growing waistline. I don’t know where you’re lookin’ but it still looks like 24 inches to me.

Jun-hee’s suspicion radar pings when Ji-an asks after the cost of setting up one’s own shop. She warns Ji-an that a relationship gets complicated once money’s involved but Ji-an insists that she’s simply curious for herself and turns to leave.

She hears Jun-hee ask where she’s going with that look of death and Ji-an answers, “The tiger’s den.”

Well that tiger’s den looks an awful lot like a meeting with Madame Jang who lets out a little laugh at Ji-an’s apology about the wreaths and her efforts to groom her as a future CEO. She listens with a stern expression about how Ji-an understands if her anger and disappointment is as great as her once affection towards her.

Ji-an pleads if Madame Jang can forgive her past and look to the future. She doesn’t want to lose either the baby nor the company, arguing that no one else cares for the company as much as she does, “As much as a mother cherishes her child, so does the child need their mother.”

In short, she needs this company and thus, needs to be here.

We hear Madame Jang’s response a little later, her polite cackling mocking her. “Did you think that you would get this company because you thought it was yours? Who said it was?” In fact, she’s more like a babysitter, someone who can be traded out anytime.

Ji-an sits there for a long moment and takes out her laptop. One painstakingly character at a time, she types up the beginning of the resignation letter.

Tae-kang and Dad are busy oohing and ahhing over Ankle’s sonogram when they’re interrupted by a call from Ji-an’s father. And he wants to meet Dad. Ruh-oh.

The mood is tense at the cafe and Dad suggests that Teacher Hwang address him however he feels comfortable. So he starts off whether Dad really intends to send his son overseas to leave his expecting pregnant daughter behind. Dad counters that his daughter was the one who rejected the marriage proposal.

They continue to go at it about their children and Dad particularly doesn’t like how Teacher Hwang has a bone to pick with his son. Likewise, Teacher Hwang doesn’t care for how Dad says that Ji-an’s caused enough grief for his family.

They angrily argue over the who-could’ve-married-into-our-families (“That doctor I lost…” “That chaebol daughter…”) and pretty soon they’re hurling petty insults at each other. Oh man, I can watch these two all day.

Things get so heated that they bark at each other that neither will accept their marriage union on account of each other’s children. Dad gets the last word that he doesn’t want Ji-an as a daughter in law. Teacher Hwang is beyond indignant at the address so Dad corrects himself, “My grandchild’s mother.” Squirm face.

Dad is still a bundle of nerves later and relays to Tae-kang that the Hwangs intend to add Ankle to their family registry (Tae-kang: “She won’t even have my last name…”) but Dad assures him that he’ll protect the honor of the Park family.

Mom rips into Dad a new one for losing his temper with Tae-kang’s father. He should have been courteous since they’ll all be grandparents to the child.

Dad defends that how irritating Tae-kang’s father was but she doesn’t find that a sufficient excuses and finally blows her lid: “It’s your daughter’s life! How can you say that! Is your pride the issue here?!” Mom’s growing a spine! I love it.

Ji-an is distracted at work and as she discusses future projects with Team Leader Ma, the reality that she won’t be able to participate in them starts to settle in. Whether it’s because she’ll be too far long in her pregnancy or the insecurity of her future with the company, the tears start falling anyway.

Quickly wiping them away, Ji-an blames it on the pregnancy hormones. But Team Leader Ma understands her situation and gently comforts her.

Tae-kang checks the items off of his “Things to do for Ankle and Mom” which include the cutest things like going to the seashore and recording his voice and he wonders when he’ll find the time to complete them all.

After work, Tae-kang bounces into Ji-an’s office, suggesting they go on a date. out on a date. He’s got a full itinerary planned and frowns when Ji-an takes a raincheck; there are only a few days left until he leaves, after all.

He wonders if she’s still upset about the ultrasound yesterday, and when that’s not it he aegyo complains that she’ll have plenty to work on after he leaves the country.

Little does he know that the very thought of whether or not she’ll have work to do tomorrow is what’s weighing on her mind. She answers, “How does a person know what will happen tomorrow?” and he misinterprets this as her workaholic tendencies. He leaves, dejected.

Just watching Eun-sung neatly fold that napkin is enough of a sign to let us know that he’s in You-don’t-wanna-marry-me mode. He thinks he’s in the clear with his classic “Mommy” routine on this blind date… and then she swiftly counters with how she’d like to marry someone just like “Daddy” HA! Eun-sung, you have met your match.

He’s not one to be upstaged so he whips out his secret weapon: the mascara. Eun-sung twirls it around, excusing himself to the bathroom. He bides his time, figuring she’d leave in the interim, but then he walks out… and she’s still there, taking sel-cas. Looks like you’re gonna have to sit through this one.

While she rambles on asking about his finances and family background, Eun-sung sends a sneaky emergency text. And then halfway through dinner his savior appears, splashing his face with water.

We pan up the camera… and there’s Tae-kang, absolutely livid. He rages, “How can love change?!” AHAHAHA. He plays the part of the pissy boyfriend to a T and it successfully chases the golddigger away.

Ji-an sits in her office, Na-ri’s warning about going public with her relationship haunting her. She tells Ankle that she’d push through as long as it didn’t damage Tae-kang. None of the ideas that run in her head seem adequate and she nervously rubs her hands together.

Arriving at a decision, she puts in a call to a lawyer about an unfair dismissal…

Apparently Tae-kang and Eun-sung are best buds now as they sit at the latter’s apartment with a few drinks. Tae-kang marvels at the fetus’ development stages and smiles when Eun-sung tells him that the baby prefers hearing the father’s voice over the mother’s. But then it occurs to him that Ankle will probably get more used to Eun-sung’s voice than his.

Tae-kang honestly admits that he doesn’t want to go to the States but he sees it as a challenge: go big or go home. He wants to achieves Ji-an’s 15 year success in three years given that the company is covering his expenses and there’s a job waiting for him on the other end. Lastly, he made a promise to Ji-an that he’d run forward, looking straight ahead.

Eun-sung wonders how true that statement is, “If you always look forward, will you go straight? In order to do so, you have to look to your sides and rear and check the traffic signs. And you have to ask for directions from other people.”

They tease and chase each other around, spraying beer at one another. Back at home, Tae-kang gives the picture of Ankle a goodnight kiss and then grabs a recorder to record his voice. He then reads aloud a storybook about a shoemaker.

Ji-an paces in her shoe closet all night long. Dawn breaks and she mutters, “There’s no solution.” Crying now, she whispers how she doesn’t want to quit now.

She heads to the parking lot to find Tae-kang waiting for her. He jokes that he’ll get off halfway but at least this way, he had the chance to see her face. Aww. That sends her tipping over the edge and she squeaks, “Can you give me hug?”

He willingly complies and she wraps her arms around him, dropping her bag in the process. Ji-an insists that there’s nothing wrong though her eyes and voice betrays her words. They stand there, hugging each other tighter.

Next thing we know, Ji-an hands in her resignation letter. There’s some disappointment in Na-ri’s voice that Ji-an was unable to find a solution. Ji-an explains that this isn’t a sign of defeat – Tae-kang will leave and she’ll still have a month to figure out what to do.

Before Ji-an can say it, Na-ri promises to keep her resignation a secret from Tae-kang.

Doctor Yang excitedly flaunts another potential blind date for Eun-sung. He registers his friend’s disinterest and then tells Eun-sung to snap out of it – he’ll take Ji-an’s case. Uh, where was this 8 episodes ago?

He doesn’t believe Eun-sung’s insistence that his feelings are purely platonic now nor Eun-sung’s curiosity towards Ankle. Eun-sung muses that if he adopted a pedagogical approach to motherhood, he’d be the Pestalozzi of obstetricians.

Doctor Yang tells him, “You’re Gandhi. Mat Gandhi.” ‘Cause it can also mean “out of your mind” in Korean. So punny.

Tae-kang balks when he sees Ji-an working again but then brightens when she tells him that she plans on getting off of work early. He literally has a skip in his step when he leaves and he excitedly imagines the most freakin’ adorable date ever: taking pictures, wearing matching shirts, and feeding each other.

The imaginary date ends up in Ji-an’s apartment where a foot tickle ends up in a makeout session. Rawr. Hey, hey… why you covering with a pillow? ‘S not like we haven’t seen this before.

In reality, Ji-an tirelessly cooks up a dinner and cleans her apartment from top to bottom. As she packs a box for Tae-kang, she realizes that she’s missing something… and then carefully places the first pair of shoes she designed in a box. “Ankle, let’s send off your dad with a smile and think about our problem later.”

Tae-kang is on his way to Ji-an’s with a similarly sized box when he gets a call from Bong-soo. We don’t get to hear the “big news” just yet but whatever it is, it turns his smile upside down by the time he arrives at her apartment.

Ji-an on the other hand, excitedly drags him over to the dinner she’s prepared (well, bought) and then adorably thinks of what they should do afterwards. But Tae-kang’s solemn face stays firm and confronts her about her resignation.

She doesn’t skirt the issue but Tae-kang doesn’t believe her excuse that she wants to take a break. It doesn’t take him long to guess that the company is pressuring her to quit because she publicly disclosed her status as a single mother. Indignant, he says they should report to the Department of Labor and then states that he and Dad will quit working for a company who discriminates their employees.

That gets Ji-an to raise her voice too. She gets ahead of herself and blurts, “Who am I–?” which is a flub that doesn’t go unnoticed by Tae-kang. He says that they’re better off this way and the three of them can set up shop someplace else.

Before Ji-an can respond to this, they’re interrupted by the news that there’s an emergency at work.

Tae-kang gets up to stop her – what concern is it of hers if there’s an emergency or a bomb that goes off in that horrible company? Where is her pride that he so admires? Ji-an counters that the company is also her child and a parent would never place their pride over their child. She assures him that she’ll be back soon and leaves.

Tae-kang paces the apartment and vows to himself that he won’t get involved. He even prays to the heavens that the company stock will drop, the property value rendered worthless and that the collaboration will fail.

Ji-an arrives as the staff sweat in the office. Na-ri is busy on the phone, seeking legal advice if it’s possible to sue their supplier because their leather shipment is damaged. Ji-an immediately asks why it was sent by sea rather than air and Na-ri owns up to making that executive decision to cut costs.

It’s up to Ji-an to think of an alternative solution and she proposes they go ahead to sell the flawed leather to bag companies, advertising it as vintage. Then Tae-kang saunters in, having chose to come help after all.

The staff breaks up into teams to reach out to the neighboring companies and Tae-kang gets turned away by the security guard who thinks they’re scammers. But a quick disguise later, the dense security guard lets him through and Tae-kang’s sales skills shine as he pitches the leather to the designers.

Ji-an knocks on the door and drops off a pile of folders filled with information she’s logged over the past 15 years. When Na-ri asks why Ji-an is giving it over to her, she answers: “For 15 years, this place has been my home, my hometown, my school, and my child.” Ji-an is sharing them with Na-ri because she doesn’t know what will happen to her in the future.

Back in 2004, she made a similar error and it was a miracle that she wasn’t fired then. What makes humans different from animals is that we learn from our mistakes, Ji-an teaches. “If we fall seven times, we learn how to fall the right way.

She encourages Na-ri that it’s the only the first time she’s fallen. Then good news – the team has managed to sell the leather to their respective buyers. In a good mood, the staff calls for a team congratulatory dinner/Tae-kang send-off party.

Ji-an mouths a word of thanks but Tae-kang’s expression doesn’t change in the slightest.

Tae-kang offers to escort Na-ri himself and at her office he places an envelope on her desk. She asks what it is and he tells her to open it herself, “It’s not a love letter.”

Na-ri’s eyes grow wide at Tae-kang’s resignation letter and is surprised to hear that Tae-kang’s heard that Ji-an has already handed hers in. He gets riled up, expressing his disappointment towards the company. They’d be at a loss without her, especially given her dedication to avert a crisis situation.

Na-ri is aware of all of this and asks if Tae-kang knows the real reason behind her resignation. Sure, he says and starts with the single mother issue when she cuts him off – Ji-an offered her resignation to protect him.

Once he’s filled in, he finds it ridiculous that Ji-an would consider quitting because of the rumors about her relationship with him. But Na-ri tells him that this is a place where ridiculous things run amok and that her career is at risk if it gets out that Tae-kang is the father of the child.

Tae-kang offers to trade places by quitting himself but that will do little to resolve the situation. This wasn’t an easy choice for Ji-an to make and she seriously advises Tae-kang to reconsider the real reason behind Ji-an’s decision.

Now Ji-an earlier words about the uncertainty of where she would be in the future and her request for a hug makes sense in Tae-kang’s mind. When she calls, he offers to see her at her place later.

Meanwhile, Na-ri peruses Ji-an’s notes and sighs deeply. Why am I reminded of Sam-soon’s food journal?

Ji-an arrives home and opens the large box Tae-kang brought over. Inside are three pairs of shoes for Ji-an, himself, and little Ankle as well as a note. It reads: “There were so many things that I wanted to do for you, but I couldn’t do them all. So I did the one thing I wanted to do most. Making shoes for our family. I want to be someone who makes shoes for you and Ankle forever.”

She stares at the shoes, tears welling up in her eyes when the doorbell rings. As soon as Tae-kang steps inside, she envelops him in a backhug and tells him that she was moved by his gift. He should understand how much of a compliment that is coming from her. Then she tells him to go and work hard.

Finally, Tae-kang whips her around and states that he’s not going be it America or Heaven. Ji-an stunned and confused so Tae-kang clarifies his reasons. He admits that he decided to go because he was mad at first but then for Ji-an and Ankle because he made a promise to them. But he never wanted to go in the first place and he still doesn’t.

Ji-an is flustered and stutters that he should go because if he nurtures his skill, he could become a great designer. Tae-kang counters that becoming a designer isn’t the only way to become a father she and Ankle can be proud of.

Rather than the opportunity to work for Jake or study abroad for free, “I’m more curious about what our Ankle’s first cry will sound like when she’s born into this world. What foot she’ll step on first when she first learns to walk. What expression she’ll have when she gets her hair cut for the first time. Whether the first word that comes out of her mouth is ‘Mommy’ or ‘Daddy.’ I want to see that more.”

Those are milestones that only happen once and never come again. Ji-an argues the same for his chance to go to America but he turns the question back on her. She comes first in his heart and for Ji-an it’s the company and the shoes. Why is she giving up all of that for him?

Ji-an defends that it isn’t the case; that it felt like she had no other choice. Tae-kang takes Ji-an’s hands in his and declares, “The workaholic Hwang i-an who knows nothing but work, Hwang Ji-an who charges straight ahead… that the Hwang Ji-an I love!”

He wraps her in a hug and says, “I’m always going to be by your side, so don’t keep trying to send me away.”

We fade to black and see Bong-soo regale his regulars on another bit of gossip when a coworker rushes over, urging them to follow. By the entrance, we see Tae-kang and Ji-an in matching couple shirts and tie, publicly displaying their relationship status to the world.

Tae-kang drinks in the attention, even posing for the cameras and Bong-soo gapes. He runs into tell Dad, who swivels in his chair, dressed in the same attire. HA! Team Baby Daddy ftw!

We cut back to our newly official couple and Ji-an asks, “Shall we go to work now?” and the two intertwine their fingers, ready to take the company by storm hand-in-hand.

 

COMMENTS

AWESOME. What a great episode from start to finish and boy oh boy (or do I say girl?) am I excited to see Ji-an and Tae-kang pair up again to face the world as a team. That bold statement walking in together in matching outfits and with confidence was absolutely amazing to see and I can’t wait for what our final hour will have in store.

To get it out of the way, I loved how the show introduced the issue of Noble Idiocy but didn’t hammer it over our heads too much in this episode. It’s interesting that Ji-an was the one who had to assess her priorities and rearrange what comes first in her life. For her, both being a mother and being employed (to your dream job) are things that are equally important to her and a part of her identity. From pleading with Madame Jang to contemplating all night over what decision to make, seeing that inner struggle to arrive at a decision, albeit a difficult one tugged at my heart.

The very decision of choosing Tae-kang’s future over her own career is enough of a statement to see where Tae-kang stands in her life, that he too is a priority. And for Tae-kang, who also loves the workaholic Ji-an, needed to know that as well. So I’m not saying that Ji-an should throw away her career or that Tae-kang would have demanded her to do so because those are choices that are out of character for both people. But rather it’s the intention and their heart behind those decisions. Neither would ever allow the other to give up on their dreams for their own sakes, which is absolutely remarkable.

On a more shallow note, I’m still scratching my head why Ji-an isn’t showing at all. Now I’m all confused where we’re at on the Ji-an pregnancy timeline because I feel like we missed out a little bit on the hijinks that could have been explored here as well. But if we’re going to take less of the pregnancy for more of the preparation for parenthood for our main couple, I can live with that exchange.

Just as long you don’t name your child Ankle or Pheobo, we should be okay.

  2. Ivoire

    Thank you!!! Will be back to comment later!

    • 2.1 Ivoire

      Just as many of the comments below, I really liked this episode. I was also curious about JA not showing, but as many of the ladies have expressed in their comments, a pregnant woman doesn’t necessarily show until well into her pregnancy, so I will just let that rest.
      When I got into this drama, I was looking forward to the hijinks that the pregnancy would lend itself to, and I wish we had had some of those. I agree with Gummimochi that those could have been explored.

      I did appreciate the cute and tender scenes in this episode and there were quite a few. TK showed once again how he has been consistent as a character in treating JA as a priority (which he has done throughout the drama) and by showing once again that he is actually not that immature, childish and impulsive.

      We see in this episode that TK puts two and two together when he reflects on how pensive and worried JA had been (the hug she asked for, what she said in the office) and realizes why she was that way. It doesn’t take him long to figure it out. He also figures out quickly that JA must have had her back against the wall, if she handed out her resignation letter and how painful that must have been for her. He knows her.
      TK changes his mind about staying away from the crisis and returns to the office to help, because that is the right thing to do and because he loves her and wants to support her.
      He turns out to be quite a maverick in marketing, managing to sell the most amount of leather patterns. He might not have a higher education, but he does have very good people and sales skills. He also shows how creative he can be when he disguises himself and his colleague to go back to the company and they manage to get in. This episode reinforced for me why TK is a good fit for JA. They work well together, and they are also willing to put each other first and are willing to sacrifice for each other’s dreams.

      I knew and felt early on that JA would at some point go the Noble Idiot route, simply because it seemed to be a plot that would use Noble Idiocy as a conflict to make her choose between her career and her man, and in the process show how much she had grown because she would be willing to put someone’s future before her own, and she did just that. That being said, it is not as if she doesn’t have resources. She is a well established and well known designer, and we would hope that even though she was scorned and demeaned for being a single mother, that she could still turn things around for herself. TK in my opinion, had more to loose than her, in the long run, because he was just starting out in his professional career (I know he did fake shoes for ten years with his dad, but they were on the down low because it was illegal [I think…], so his real career starts with working at the company).

      TK has had some of the best lines in this show and it happens again in this episode when he tells JA what it means to be a good dad. I totally agree with him that those first times with your child are moments that one doesn’t get back. I think that the America opportunity was a great one, especially for him who only had a HS education, but I also totally understand why he wouldn’t want to miss his child’s first moments, especially if she turns out to be the only child he has with JA, considering that her chances of getting pregnant again could be slim. As he also said, he loves his dad and doesn’t want to leave him, but I personally think that they could have coped with that, and coped with him being away from JA. Because of his personality however, I didn’t want TK to miss the pregnancy. He is by essence a family man and he relishes in being there for his family and I also think that it feeds his emotional heart.

      I really loved the scene about the DR. being on the date and his antics and TK coming to rescue him. That was so cute and funny and a nice way to establish some bromance between TK and DWB (Dr. Without Borders). The ensuing scene at the Dr.’s apt was cute as well. I liked how the Doc. questioned TK on his desire to go to the US and got him to admit that he didn’t really want to go and helped him in this way make a decision and stick to it. Gummi, don’t you think the Dr. is redeeming himself rather well? Could he be off your probation list now :-)? (just wondering…).

      I also really loved the meeting between the two dads and I too, could watch them all day. I LOVED that they both stood by their children and that both had really good candidates as potential children-in-law. I was glad that TK wasn’t made to have lower options (the message it would have sent would not have been a good one).

      The couple shirts and ties and the dad being in on it at work was just “dae to the bakk” (if I may use that expression as I saw it being used somewhere) and as Gummi said, a nice way to end this episode. I look forward to what the last episode has in store for us.

  3. Ennayra

    Thanks for the recap! I’m glad they’re on the same page. And I loved the scene when Tae-kang rescued Eun-sung from the matseon. :-)

    • 3.1 zsa

      That was gold!!! It’s so cute that he learned to trust Eun Seong…and they are level now with the jokbal cooking, and the matseon rescue…hehe too cute!! I think LJW and PGH have similar comic timing and ability with KSA….they do excellent comedy…

  4. OMG

    I have to agree…throughout out the episode, i kept wondering where d hell was her baby bump???? Even a little bump would have been good enough…

  5. Nheony

    So veto on Pheobo? What about Princess Consuela Banana Hammock. Haha! Such a cute episode it makes me giggle even after I was done watching.

    • 5.1 LK

      And what about Crap Bag? HAHAHA! (I miss “Friends” so much!)

    • 5.2 adette

      teehee friends references ftw ^^

  6. Tru2u

    Words cannot describe how i LOVE this episode.

    What would have taken other dramas 5-6 episodes to find out about the infamous “Noble Idiocy” took this drama less than a hour. I’m glad they didn’t drag this out. TK & Ji-An moments in these episodes just warms my heart, TK imagination, and i couldn’t help but to LOL from Ji-An 2nd attempt at cooking hahahahaha. but the scenes that had be rolling was the blind date and when the 2 dads finally met <LMBOOOOOO. Ji-An's dad FINALLY met his match, yes gummimochi, i can watch these two go at it ALL day, the lines that got me were, “That doctor I lost…” “That chaebol daughter…” TK dad was trying his best to stay calm, but when i heard the change in the tone of his voice i know he was ready to take this guy down a few nutch!!!!!! then the blind date scene had me in stitches, Doc was back to his old tricks "MOMMMYY" , but i have to admit i did like that girl gave him a hard time. i honestly though he had finally met his match because she was able to backfire his plans at him. Not even his trump card worked for him, so when he got his phone out knew something BIG was about go down, all of a sudden i see water being throw at the doc only to hear, “How can love change?!” Then the Doc softy touched his hand, I LOL'ED so hard, did you see when TK said "that's enough" turned his head and walk away, only to have the Doc calling him "Honey"? *cries* Everyone in the restaurant were like o.O<the BEST no, sorry the GREATEST Bromance in K-Drama history. What sealed this episode for me was the ending, it took me by surprise (O.O) i screamed to loud, but then the cherry was added when i saw that dad was in on it too.

    This episode was DAEBAK!!! enough said.

    • 6.1 Ivoire

      Hi Tru2u,
      I hope your sister is still getting better and that the baby is OK and that your whole family is doing well. Have a great weekend :-)!

    • 6.2 toystar

      Thank u my thoughts exactly. Daebak indeed!!!! I loved every minute of it.

  7. LK

    Okay, I just saw the last episode and it was just perfect. <3

  8. Brittni

    Honestly I’m ok with her not showing because I’ve known people that only gained ten -thirteen pounds when pregnant and they didnt start showing till the very end. Not all women gain weight the same during pregnancy. Some women turn into whales ( my mom haha ) and some barely look like they ate a big lunch ( my sister.)

    • 8.1 zsa

      that’s true…even for me who’s not terribly skinny as JA, I only started showing at 5 months..at which time I already knew my baby’s gender…others are even later…I believe JA is only around 16 weeks at the moment…

      • 8.1.1 colors

        Well, that may be true but if you’re watching a tv show about a woman being pregnant, you expect to see her with a showing belly before the last episode. It kinds of make the whole pregancy issue less visible even if she does go for an ultrasound check (is it the right term? a sonogram maybe?) in most episodes.
        I saw many tv shows and movies trying to hide the actress’ pregnancy, but for once in this episode, I feel like they were trying to hide her flat belly.
        I think that in France, you only have 3 compulsory checks, unless something’s wrong. And the second one, at 20 weeks, allows you to know the sex of the baby if it’s well positioned for the ultra sound (but there must be 3D sonograms, I’m not sure.) So she must be four months pregnant as you said.

    • 8.2 via

      Yes, its true especially for first time pregnancy. I didnt show til I was on 7th mos when I was pregnant. And I remember that there were some cases here in states (teen pregnancy), parents of some teens didnt even know their daughter gave birth when she chucked the baby in the garbage bins. Hence that law they can drop the baby to a firestation, hospital etc ……to curb this problem.

    It was awesome that tae kang’s dad had the same outfit, haha. I’m glad ji-an finally has a dad who supports her!

    this episode was filled with cuteness was i the only one that was like “only one more and its over”

    Thank you for always with the drama gummimochi :)
    Yay2 what a bold Jian as bold as this drama to brought up sensitive social issue.

    I like it when dr yang pressing eun seung about Jian, and oh well why he didn’t ask more like “those kid is the other guy?”or “he’s so young, how did that kind of woman end up with him?” but telling about how the two get emotional at first then fighting after, that’s hilarious and fine :)

    my other favorite scene is when Dad Hwang meet daddy Park, can’t help but laughing watching how they stand on their ego and pride, “the pregnancy happen because both of them”, of course it takes two to tango right??, you can’t blame one party daddy Hwang, just because daughter on your side. At last we know that his intention just to get to know daddy park haha…

    once more imagination never leaving the writer’s mind, but I love it, since it about our cute couple, the date scenes are priceless, they were look so great and compatible especially when the two end up at Jian apartment *hehehe, the sound of distort sofa, omg keep going tae kang ah :)), why didn’t we have it in the early episode??

    Love is about sacrifice as how massive their love for each other, ready to thrown away for his/her love. No words, through action you know how Jian love Tae kang, see that Tae kang!!! he did!!

    yay the best bold action ever, show off at the office, the best, those employee guy’s right, here comes our couple plus dad :) jeongmal DAEBAK!!!!

    so cute.. im ok with jian not showing yet, both time i gained only 10&12kg, the bump appeared notiecably by the 6th month so i got away wearing a lot of loose tops over stretchy pants/skirts. One sister was a fridge and took her months to shrink to original size..

    Thank you, gummi, for recapping! Loved all the cute as well! Just one more left and the cute is gone. *sob*

    My favourtie part…the makeout session…if only it wasn’t an imagination…haha…but the reality ‘team baby daddy’ appearance is great too. I love that Ji an is now owning up to her feelings and we know that the company is something really important to her too. and of course, I love alll the hugging and hand holding…Is it near the end already? Sigh…

    I’m glad I stayed with this drama…I needed something light but meaningful to watch and I learned so much…IDID, fighting!! THE CHEMISTRY…what can I say…

    in s.korea its illegal to know the sex of your baby.. so how does ji-an get to know?

    • 16.1 zsa

      She wasn’t directly told by the doc. It was beyong period where abortion was allowed, so he hinted the gender of the baby. In my country, abortion is illegal but knowing the gender is legal.

      I’m glad I had faith in NaRi. I think she’ll play good knight in the end.

  19. 19 Soyonb

    It was such a cute episode. I do agree, Dr. Finally go some boders… So no more hating him. And the mateson scene was comedy gold. Thanks for the recap!

  20. 20 Shurlee

    Thank you!!

  21. 21 Annie

    I was either laughing, smiling, or aawing this episode. Definitely the best episode of the series. Thank you for the recap!

  22. 22 Suzi Q

    I only gained 13 lbs. on my last child.I didn’t show until 5 months along, and he weighed 81/2 lbs at birth. So Ji An isn’t that far along to show.
    So cute that they wore the couple outfits at work including the dad and TK decided to stay for JA and Ankle.
    Will be ever find out Ankle’s name?

  23. 23 suzie

    Thank u so much for the recap.The scenes are still lingering in my mind eventhough its already over. Im glad is a happy ending and lots of cute scene to remember especially btw jian and tk..I wonder what KSA next project.. Where can i look for updates.. im gonna miss her acting..

  24. 24 TammieR

    I don’t think LJW has ever been cuter. Oh my goodness. I just want to wrap him up and put him in my pocket! So. Stinkin’. Adorable. And KSA? Good heavens. She’s amazing. The two together? Perfection. I’m so sad this is over! They both need new dramas. Stat. I’m going to go through withdrawls.

    • 24.1 Betty

      I know right ?!!

  25. 25 sulyn

    Yes, just love their cuty scenes. How adorable! KSA looks so good with LJW in both couple outfits and that street scene – was so so sweet!

    Thanks for the recap.

    Thannk you…

  27. 27 Rule

    I they were so so cute individually. I just wish they were closer in age as they huge age gap doesn’t sit well with me.
    Thats the only downer in this drama, I loved everything about it otherwise.
    Individually I loved them both.

  28. 28 malta

    Loved this wonderful episode. My favorite part was when Jian and Taekang came to work in matching outfits. I loved that TK’s dad was wearing the same outfit also. So awesome! It was also really funny when TK’s dad and JA’s dad met. LOL.

    Our couple seems to be holding on to the company, do or die, but I still wish they would say screw it, let’s start our own family company and forget that toxic corporate environment. I guess that’s not how you change the world though. :)

    I really, really hope we get to see the birth and meet Ankle.

    a huge fan of KSA – hello korea’s biggest/best actress here- and a huge fan of the Woojung couples – its weird how i find myself not liking this drama – couldn’t pass more than a few episode here and there . Still a fan of the actors but cant seem to feel the chemistry of the two lead – sorry to hear about the single digit ending BUT you win some and lose some – awww better next round GO JANGONIM

  30. 30 otter

    @zsa: i remember my sister got pregnant in korea and she couldnt find out until she gave birth; there is no abortion period… also illegal..

  31. 31 Awe

    loved this episode <3

    thanks for the recaps <3

    my only wish is that this drama would have made this episode earlier…there were a lot of dead (unnecessary scenes) in episode 11-14) and had they drop those, we could have had a much richer ending, imho.

    the "family ties" scene was heart-warming. lol. get it?

    FAMILY TIES

    • 31.1 zsa

      wow…great PUN…Love it!

      I have to say I’m really loving the extra characters like

      Bong Soo ( and their private meetings, LOL)

      and the best friend (when he starts speaking, I just laugh)…he has really great dialogues…
