I Miss You: Episode 2
by | November 8, 2012 | 100 Comments

Oh whew, it’s much better today. Yay for some cuteness. I was scared off a little (okay, a lot) by the downer of a first episode, but thankfully we get some much-needed levity up in here, as young romance starts to bloom. Why the show didn’t choose to start here is beyond me.


Jung-woo finds Soo-yeon hiding under the slide and asks her to be friends. The first thing out of her mouth is, “Why?” He says he can take it back, and then suddenly dashes away.

Panicked that he’s really rescinding the offer, she chases him, and finds him leaning over a neighbor’s wall to steal a clothespin. He sticks it in her hair to sweep it out of her face and smiles, “Ah, so that’s what you look like.”

He tells her to wear it like that from now on. “I won’t ever pretend I don’t know you again. I’m sorry.” Aw.

She starts to tear up again, just as the wind kicks up, so he adorably sticks his arms out to be a shield from the wind and tells her not to cry. Can I keep him?

She finally smiles back. As they walk, she sort of trails behind him shyly like a puppy, so he runs at full speed just to get her to chase him.

Soo-yeon’s mom cries in the aftermath of the neighborhood ajumma attack, as Detective Kim stands in her doorway. She cries that they can’t blame her—she’s the one who turned that monster in.

Detective Kim hangs his head, “I’m sorry… the real killer… was caught.” Mom’s jaw drops in disbelief, and Detective Kim gets on his knees to tell her that he’s sorry.

Little Joonie (Hyung-joon) stares out his barred window, bowl at the ready. Poor kid is just trapped in there. He shrinks back when he sees Soo-yeon pass by, and notes Jung-woo with her. I wonder if they’ve ever met. They’re family, but this isn’t exactly a gather-for-holidays sort of bunch.

Her house is just a few doors down, and she shows it to Jung-woo who agrees that it’s really small. He brags that his house is really big in a jokey tone, but then adds somberly, “It’s so big that the wind blows through it, making me cry. Not because I’m sad, but because the wind gets in my eyes.” He uses her line, but you can tell it’s sincere.

Nurse Hye-mi sneaks back into Joonie’s room at the chairman’s compound, and takes out a duffle bag full of cash from the piano. She shudders as she thinks of Mom’s orders for her to take Jung-woo, as leverage to get the rest of the chairman’s money.

But she doesn’t get very far, because as soon as she returns home with said bag o’ money, Chairman Han is sitting in her living room waiting for her. He threatens her, expecting that she’ll lead them to Joonie if she’s got him stashed somewhere… but leaves without questioning the giant suspicious bag at her feet. Ha.

Soo-yeon finds Mom being thrown out of a restaurant, drunk and screaming as usual. She crumples in the middle of the street, crying and wailing in the aftermath of finding out that her husband never killed anyone, but died a killer anyway.

Soo-yeon doesn’t know this, and just pleads with Mom that she’ll be good, as if to make up for all of the bad in their lives. She breaks my heart.

Jung-woo runs to school the next morning, armed with a new hairpin for Soo-yeon, and walks into class to find the bullies painting her desk red and covering her chair in glue.

She walks in just in time to see Jung-woo shove the boys and the desk, ready to start another fight. The other kids warn that the teacher is coming, and Soo-yeon uses that chance to swoop in between the boys… and hug the bully. Ha.

Now the teacher is scolding the bully and Soo-yeon for dating, while the class oooohs and Jung-woo gapes. Are you jealous?

They spend the rest of class sneaking peeks at each other, but Jung-woo can’t get her make eye contact. He grabs her after class and asks what’s going on—didn’t they decide to be friends?

She says that everyone hates her here and knows whose daughter she is, so they can be friends outside of school but not here. “Secret friends.” He calls bullshit (thank you) but she won’t budge.

During lunch, the mean kids decide to pelt her with their milk cartons, calling it “throwing trash in the trashcan” and the winner gets cash. Jung-woo seethes in his seat and then makes a move to get up anyway against her wishes, but Soo-yeon beats him to it.

He watches as she picks up a trashcan, throws the cartons in, and then goes to each student and redelivers their milk. I love that she can defend herself. Jung-woo watches starstruck, totally impressed.

She sticks the trashcan up on the teacher’s desk with her scariest Ring-girl look, and Jung-woo pitches his carton in and takes the cash prize. He stops in the doorway, “Hey Lee Soo-yeon, aren’t you coming?”

She looks at him in alarm but he just beams and waves the bill wildly, “Snack shop!” So cute. They sit outside as the entire class watches from the windows, and she argues that she wanted to be secret friends.

Jung-woo: “And I said I didn’t.” He pulls her over to sit down next to him, and then comes the rain of trash over their heads. Soo-yeon gets to say I told you so: “Now you’re an outcast too.”

He scoffs that he’s never heard of an outcast with a friend, reminding her that she’s the one who said all she needed was one friend. He says this is nothing and promises to ignore her if things ever get too hard to handle, and that seems to ease her worry enough to relent.

On their way home, he teases that she’s just mad because he’s more famous than her now, and then asks her to take the post-its off his back. They tell Number 27 and 41 to hold hands and get lost, and call him a murderer’s daughter’s boyfriend.

She sighs, wondering what she’s going to do with him, when they’re suddenly interrupted by a loud popping sound. They run towards it…

It’s a fire, in the house where Joonie is trapped. The door is still locked from the outside, and Jung-woo grabs a nearby brick to smash the lock open. Joonie comes tumbling out on top of him, and immediately runs away in fear.

Jung-woo tries to stop him to help, and sees his leg covered in blood. He reaches out and accidentally yanks the necklace off his neck, and it breaks in two. He tells Soo-yeon that the kid is hurt, and she catches up to him, but he struggles to get away.

Finally Jung-woo comes up and just picks him up, kicking and screaming. They rush him to the nearest doctor, who can’t believe the condition his leg has been left in. Yeah, you and me both, doc.

Jung-woo calls his stepmother and pleads with her to come help him just this once, but she coldly tells him to get out of there before he has to take responsibility for anything. Dad takes the phone and says he’ll send someone over. Eep!

At the same time, Nurse Hye-mi gets the call about the fire and sneaks out, taking care not to be caught by Chairman Han’s men. But when she gets to the doctor’s office to find Joonie, it’s Jung-woo she sees standing outside.

She recognizes him from the picture of Chairman Han’s family and hides. She watches as he gives Soo-yeon the broken necklace, with a portrait of Mom and the inscription: “To Joonie, the one I love most in this whole world –Mom.”

And dangling from the other end of the string is a key. Cha-ching!

Joonie stirs awake, crying out for Mom. But when he opens his eyes, it’s Soo-yeon who’s sitting at his bedside. He panics, grasping for the necklace, and she gives him the broken pieces.

She introduces herself as “unni,” thinking him a girl, ha. He mutters under his breath, “Stupid. I’m not a girl.” She asks what he said until he finally repeats the “Stupid” part. She tells him her name, but that’s as far as they get before Hye-mi runs in, pushes her aside, and rushes Joonie away.

Soo-yeon and Jung-woo chase after the cab, and Joonie cries to be taken to Mom. Hye-mi snaps at him that he risked everything: “Do you know who you were with? That’s Han Tae-joon’s son!” He looks back at them.

Chairman Han fumes that they lost Hye-mi’s trail, and Jung-woo comes home to hear him kick his minions out in a rage. Stepmom tells him not to interrupt and sighs when she sees his bloody hand.

She snaps at him that she’s the one who gets blamed for his missteps, and he asks if they can’t try to make an effort to get along. How can they live like this every day?

She calls him greedy for having everything from his father and wanting her too, and tells him not to blame her—Dad made it this way. I don’t like her, but she’s not wrong.

Soo-yeon comes home and Mom bolts up, deciding that they can’t live this way anymore. She starts to pack a bag, and declares that they’re going to move into Detective Kim’s house. Er, just like that? Does he know you’re coming?

Soo-yeon puts up a fight, but Mom says she can’t feed them—what else are they going to do? So the only thing you could think of was to use Detective Kim’s guilt to your advantage? I mean, I’m happy for Soo-yeon because it’ll at least mean she has a slight chance at normalcy, but still.

By morning they’re standing in Detective Kim’s yard, while his daughter Eun-joo pitches a fit that Dad’s sullying Mom’s memory, thinking that he’s brought a girlfriend and her daughter here to live with them.

I love his confusion. He swears it’s not what it looks like, but Eun-joo’s like, yeah right. Mom tells him that it’s just until Soo-yeon grows up—they’ll stay here and she’ll cook for both daughters.

He just sits there flabbergasted, and suggests that if she gives him time he might be able to find her an apartment or something, but Mom doesn’t even give him a chance to refuse.

She adds that they’ll have to keep the whole Dad-wasn’t-really-a-murderer thing a secret between them. Did she just move into his house and not let him argue? Whaaa?

Meanwhile, Jung-woo panics when he goes to Soo-yeon’s house and finds it empty. The landlady tells him they moved in the middle of the night. He heads to the playground dejectedly.

But Soo-yeon is there on the swings, kicking a little bucket of water to play her he’ll-come-he-won’t-come game with ripples in the water. She hums a song and he lights up at the sight of her.

He asks if she’s going to move schools too, and she wonders if she should, not giving away how much she pleaded with Mom to let her stay at her school. She tells him that the clothespin was the first present anyone’s ever given her (So. Sad.) and that she has a present for him too, but will only give it to him on a rainy day.

He walks her to her new house and asks about her new family. She says there’s another girl there the same age as them, and Jung-woo pouts that she can’t ignore him just because she makes a new friend.

They sit on her front stoop and he touches her foot asking if she isn’t cold, making her shrink back in embarrassment. He puts her at ease by showing her all the scars he’s accumulated over the years, on his back, his leg, and teasingly starts to unbuckle his belt, making her turn away wide-eyed. You cheeky.

She shows him the scar on her foot and says she got it while running away from Dad. She stepped on a piece of glass in the snow, and didn’t even feel the pain because it was so cold.

“But strangely, every time I see it, it hurts. Even though it’s healed.”

He listens to her story and then puts his hand on her foot to cover the scar, “It doesn’t hurt now, because you can’t see it, right?”

With his other hand he waves it in front of her face like he’s casting a spell, “All bad memories erased! Now you can make new ones—good memories.”

They’re interrupted when Eun-joo comes home. I love that the cop’s daughter talks like a gangster; she’s hilarious. She’s mean to Soo-yeon, until Jung-woo pops up behind her, slaying her with The Pretty.

Eun-joo gapes and her inner voice marvels that a boy so cute could have a voice like that. As he approaches, she thinks, “Don’t smile, don’t smile, don’t smile…” He smiles, and she practically faints. Hahahaha.

Chairman Han checks out the room where Joonie was hiding out, and his minion reports that Jung-woo was the one who rescued him and took him to the hospital that day.

Dad reels at the missed opportunity, and the minion confirms that Jung-woo didn’t seem to know the family connection and just happened to be nearby.

His right-hand minion is actually a double agent, and reports to Joonie’s mom (or he’s working both sides—it’s unclear at the moment). He promises to take her and Joonie to safety, but she doesn’t trust him.

He warns that Joonie’s leg won’t make it much longer if they keep hiding, and Mom thinks it’s just a ploy. He tells her to give it up before she loses Joonie, but she refuses to budge.

Meanwhile Nurse Hye-mi hides a briefcase in a train station locker and forces Joonie to take his meds. He wants to be taken to Mom, and she warns him menacingly that his life and his mother’s are no longer in Chairman Han’s hands—they’re in hers.

Damn, I knew you’d turn on them. And then someone else (her partner in crime?) takes that briefcase out of the locker. The next day that same person is parked outside, stalking Jung-woo with his family photo in hand.

Jung-woo accompanies Soo-yeon home by bus, and he prods her for his present while she nods off to sleep. He gets in her face to nag her about it, just as the bus lurches forward…

…landing them in a kiss. It stuns Jung-woo, and Soo-yeon doesn’t even know it’s happened. He blinks without moving, and then scrambles back to where he was as she opens her eyes.

She turns to him wide-eyed and he starts to protest, “It wasn’t me!” but she tells him to hurry—this is their stop. Heh.

They walk up through her neighborhood and he keeps avoiding her, and she asks if he’s mad or something. Finally she stands in his path, and he goes googly-eyed, suddenly seeing her differently and feeling short of breath. It’s so adorable.

He whirls her around so he doesn’t have to look at her (Ha—if only it worked that way, kid) and marches her ahead of him. She keeps turning back around, and he just keeps spinning her forward each time with a gulp.

Soon they’re running, and he stops at a curious lamppost that blinks on as they pass by. Soo-yeon counts, and on cue it goes back out. She thinks it’s creepy, but it’s been that way since she moved here and no one will change it, and she can’t reach.

Jung-woo thinks he can, so he reaches up, using her shoulder to get a little more leverage. It’s then that Soo-yeon starts to feel something too, as she looks up at him.

He twists the bulb into place and beams, and then looks down. Their eyes lock in the charged moment and they stand there, frozen.

And then we see that someone is watching them… oh it’s Detective Kim. He peers at them from around the corner, and from his perspective, it totally looks like they’re making out, and that Jung-woo is reaching up to turn off the light.

He goes running up like he caught them red-handed and grabs Jung-woo away by the ear. LOL. I love cop ajusshi.

But as they run off, we see that the creepy stalker is there after all, watching from his car.

Jung-woo sits at the dinner table nervously, as Mom peers up at him, amused. Then Detective Kim brings out both girls wearing matching sweaters. Omg that’s so cute. He’s adorable. Eun-joo naturally balks, but Dad insists on it and they all sit down to dinner.

Eun-joo claims the seat next to Jung-woo and fawns over him, and Dad actually tells her to have some pride. Heh. And then he proceeds to awkwardly lecture Jung-woo about hormones and how he never even looked at a girl until he was twenty.

Eun-joo quickly corrects him that he met Mom in junior high and even kissed her. The trigger word sends Jung-woo into a coughing fit, and when Detective Kim catches him making googly eyes at Soo-yeon again, he drags him out by the ear in the middle of dinner. Hee.

Outside, Detective Kim gets thrown against a wall… only he’s acting, and trying to teach Jung-woo how to fight like a man. This ajusshi is making my day. He teaches him everything down to the attitude and the lines, and Jung-woo eagerly learns.

Soo-yeon sits on the stoop watching them, and Eun-joo joins her, wondering if the umbrella she found is THE umbrella that Mom mentioned at dinner. Soo-yeon grabs it and Eun-joo asks if she can’t have that, can she have Jung-woo?

Eun-joo wonders what she did to make him like someone like her, and Soo-yeon hangs her head, saying that she’s right—she likes Jung-woo on her own and he just probably felt sorry for her.

But Eun-joo isn’t actually a mean girl, and when she sees Soo-yeon react that way, she puts her arm around her and tells her to buck up—they’re detective’s daughters, after all. Awwwww.

Mom witnesses the moment with a bittersweet smile, and sits down next to Soo-yeon. She leans in and says the sweater looks better on her. It’s probably the first nice thing her mother’s ever said to her, and Soo-yeon lights up. Mom prods her to go join the others.

Detective Kim tells them all to attack, and sticks Soo-yeon’s clothespin in his own hair. Ha. The four of them run around and play keep-away in the street, like a happy little family.

We fade into Soo-yeon sitting alone, and carving a message into a wall: “I miss you.” And then she turns around at the sound of a voice calling her name. It’s Jung-woo, but the grown-up version.

Jung-woo: “Are you smiling? I’m so angry it kills me. So angry I’m going crazy. I’m just going to wait today. Just today.”

And then we see that he’s all alone, and Soo-yeon was the vision, now gone. A tear falls, “I really might go crazy this way.”


I like that transition into the future, though I think it’s just a glimpse since we’ve got a lot more story left to get through in the early years. At least this time it was a rather pleasant look forward, because yesterday’s bullet-in-brainpan montage left me wary. Fortunately today’s episode was a marked improvement on the first. It’s not nearly as convoluted, and focuses much more on building relationships and making us care.

It’s really to the show’s own detriment that they premiered with such heavy angst right off the bat. The ratings for this episode dropped to 6.2%, and it’s not hard to see why, given the doom and gloom of the first episode. I don’t know why you wouldn’t lead with the cuteness first—make us fall in love with them, and THEN bring the pain. Because by then we already care and it’s too late to back out.

I came into the series bracing myself for some heavy angst for sure, since it is a melodrama after all. But it’s the parental corporate machinations that turn me off rather than the tears or the sadness, because the emotion (when coming from Soo-yeon or Jung-woo) is done really well. I particularly liked their scar-sharing; it’s not the subtlest metaphor, but it’s a nice moment between them.

I can’t say I’m not going to roll my eyes at the plot, but I do care about the characters and today’s episode made great strides in developing their fantastic chemistry. Now they’re connected by something other than sadness and pain, and Soo-yeon has a real chance to grow up in a warm, positive environment. All good signs, pointing to the possibility that we’ll meet her in the future as a confident young woman who doesn’t hide behind her hair. Here’s hoping.

    Thanks for the recap! I’m still undecided if I’m committed to this for the whole run. Waiting for the adult leads to come on screen.

    • 1.1 Kelinci Biru

      I’m the opposite, I definitely going to watch the kid, and will decide later whether to stay for the adults.

      • 1.1.1 ilikemangos

        Amennn. lol.
        I love yoon eun hye though.

        • Kelinci Biru

          I love her too. but I’m definitely going to run if its too mellow. after Nice Guy, I’m not up for more emotional drained drama.

          • shelhass

            I was so sad that I had nothing else to see beside Nice Guy, but now I have my substitute!

            I ADORE MELOS. Dunno why. My tear ducts are such workaholics I guess.

          • Kelinci Biru

            oh, have you watch La Dolce Vita? (I’m currently watching that) and if you like mellow, you’re going to love that one. Or Will it Snow for Christmas, the previous drama from Nice Guy writer.

          • shelhass

            I’ve watched both of them! I still remember that my only reason for watching La Dolce Vita was Lee Dong Wook ^^

            I’m actually rewatching Que Sera Sera along with the melos currently airing.

        • kika

          i love her too! my first k-drama was coffee prince and she’ll always have a special place in my heart, but no matter how much i love her… i’m not sure if i can sit through all these angst and anguish.

          • Kelinci Biru

            yes, too much angst. i kinda hope (at first) that this will be more like Can You Hear My Heart, i haven’t watch it yet, but from what i heard (correct me if I’m wrong) it balanced on the angst and the cute.

        • pogo

          Yoon Eun Hye is my princess forever, and I’m really hoping this is good, she is too talented to keep wasting herself on rubbish.

          (and yes, cannot wait for her to show up too!)

      • 1.1.2 Belle

        Same here…waiting for Yoo Seung Ho. If anyone knows how to work in a melodrama… it’s YSH. He’s very talented! I’m looking forward to seeing the on-screen chemistry between the adult leads actors. …& I don’t think ratings will be a problem after that.

      • 1.1.3 minazuki

        I agree with you. Yeo Jin Gu and Kim So Hyun are amazing young actors. Love their acting since TMETS which the child actors’ story left deeper impression for me hehehee…

  2. ilikemangos

    oh woo. good to know the 2nd episode is less heavy and more cute.
    i’m willing to check this out with a wary eye.

    • 2.1 Kelinci Biru

      and more cute Yeo Jin Goo. I think my heart skipped a beat few times on this one. few times because of the cuteness and the other time remembering his age.

      • 2.1.1 smiles

        Lol! Its best to leave the guilt behind – just control the naughty thoughts and its all fine!

        • Kelinci Biru

          What naughty thought? no, i don’t have one.. definitely not. absolutely never.

      • 2.1.2 ilikemangos

        It doesn’t help that he has a deeper voice than all of the male cast.
        I’m going to hope the boy graduates to male lead in 3-4 years. Maybe if we’re lucky, even earlier.
        I have a feeling this boy matures alot faster than your average k-boy.

        • Kelinci Biru

          He already look mature and manly at fifteen and yes, that deeper voice sure help. I watched him on some premiere and he spoke like 5 words and i was stunned.

  3. Aquila

    Thanks for the recap!!

  4. hallyuholiChic.ph

    kinda heavy. but i’ll support it all the way. yoochun and hye. thanks for the recap.

  5. Rashell

    YAY! Episode 2 was SOOOOO much better then episode one! Those two kids are just about the most adorable pair ever. And I loved to see Soo Yeon finally getting some happiness in her poor sad life. And Jung Woo is so sweet to her. How cute was it to watch him suddenly see her as a girl with one little accidental meeting of the lips. And detective ajusshi has officially become my favorite character. He’s just fabulous. I have hope that this show won’t be a complete sobfest. Oh, I’m sure I’ll shed my share of tears, but I may be able to eek out a smile or two as well. After ep 1, I really wasn’t sure.

    Thanks for the recap!!

    Oh, and poor JB lets hope this isn’t a trend with this drama. JB gets the odd tragic episodes and GF gets the even lighter episodes. HA!

  6. Eye Candy

    Thanks for the recap! I don’t think I will be watching this show on my own because of the amount of tears and potential pain at the end.

  7. Christy

    Sooo cute! Really makes you wonder how viewer turnout might’ve been had they started with all the cute. An ease into the doom and gloom after the character buildup definitely would have been better to get the audience more invested in the characters.

  8. lulu

    where is this available to watch? thank you!

  9. Mars

    I have to agree they should have started with the cuteness, especially considering how gorgeous the acting and cinematography is. But the writing is as atrocious as episode 1. Plot hole after plot hole … it’s ridiculous how the writer just drops something in without preamble. It really is a pity and probably the reason for the wrong pacing. Whoever is writing the scripts feels like a real amateur.

    • 9.1 Misha

      I don’t think you know what a plot hole is 🙁

  10. 10 sunni

    Thank for your recap. I do enjoy way the plot developed so far especially the opening scene. Episode 1 was intense and I love it .Based on the writer past work, I have faith in this storyline .I love melodramas. Can’t wait for ep 3

  11. 11 dadadupuz

    Will episode 3 show their grown up version already?

  12. 12 Kelinci Biru

    *fainted from the cuteness*

    I want to keep Yeo Jin Goo for my self and save it for the rainy days. so cute.

  13. 13 UJ

    ah i cant wait to watch the first epi…stupid net died…dont care much abt the ratings^^ i just hope the drama is good…bring on the tears! o(╥﹏╥)o

  14. 14 payel

    I loved this second episode.These kids are so cute and their chemistry is palpable…. the last scene was so good…
    Waiting for YEH..
    Thanks for the recap

  15. 15 exquisitemelody

    Thanks for the awesome recap! Great break from studying histology :/

    So glad for some cute! Definitely agree that this would have been a better opening – make us like the characters and fall in love with them THEN kill us with angst. With so much angst at the beginning, it makes it harder to accept the characters because you’re to wary of what’s going to happen that you don’t want to invest too much emotion.

  16. 16 vegaspink

    I actually loved both episodes….. Love that they got the young couple’s fighting out of the way and then built the relationship… I think that after the fighting, that’s when they really got to know each other so I’m okay with the tears first..
    Can I just say how adorable the first kiss was??? Yes… Okay.. Because it was so adorable… They are too adorable… Detective ahjussi is too adorable.. I love how he defends LSY and how he became the father figure that she never had.
    Can’t wait for more…

    • 16.1 shelhass

      That kiss was adorable. More so because Jung-woo had his eyes wide open, totally shocked.

      And the way he reacted after it? Priceless.

    • 16.2 Misha

      Me too loved the 1st episode and I don’t understand why most people seems to be so spoiled. Or are most people not used to watch movies? Because the 1st episode looked like a movie to me. It was great and intense.

      Of course this episode is better because all the cuteness and watching our main characters grown is so good.

  17. 17 exquisitemelody

    Wait, where is anyone watching this drama?

    • 17.1 dadadupuz

      it’s available for download, i just don’t know if it’s okay to post the links here 🙂

    • 17.2 yuka sato

      try dramacrazy.net

      it’s the only hope we have since viki still not subbed it LOL

      eng sub for ep 1 is up, but ep 2 still raw. probably tomorrow.

    • 17.3 Juby

      It’s been added to Dramafever 😀 Gahh I’m getting so excited!

  18. 18 Shin Haido

    thank you for the recap dramabeans… i think i like this drama and will stuck in it until it finished. thanks 😉

  19. 19 eaudimpish

    Haven’t watched yet. I just got my computer sent to a repair shop. So I need recaps so I can understand the raw vid on youtube(my poor smartphone cannot play other videos). thank you 😀 As soon as my computer gets repaired I’ll catch up. Episode 2 is really much better. Episode 3 come fast ! I MISS YOU, FIGHTING.

  20. 20 hellochloe

    Eh, episode 2 already? (but I just finished reading 1!) It’s nice to be out of the loop sometimes – now I get to binge read ya recaps 🙂

  21. 21 MariePhils

    If pilot Episode of MY shed a lot of tears on me, im happy that Episode 2 calms my spirit with cuteness and character develoment on some of the cast… i have no qualms on hw episode 1 started too dramatic… coz it embodies the whole picture of this drama…

    About the ratings, im sure it will increase once the adult characters appears… Nice Guy and Arang got more than 10% rating coz its pilot episodes started on adult scenes already…so, im still positive on MY’s possibility of improving its ratings.

    Anyway, the most important thing for me is how a drama like MY is starting to slowly affect my life … as a fan who adores Korean drama as if its like a mirror in knowing one’s soul. MY, aja!

  22. 22 shelhass

    Thanks GF!

    I’m really happy you guys are giving it a try! I know I’m biased and all (God, 5 actors I like – is this heaven?!), but I think we have a good story here. And even if the writing may be bordering makjang territory, we can hope it’s not going full on it.

    I’m liking the pacing and directing, but I guess we cannot scape the pain. I already need someone to block the wind for me. That last part was so damn… “yeah Yoochun”! *tears*.

    tq tq tq tq

    owh show, what have u done to me

    the young versions are sooo cute together, and it does not help that Jung Woo is super sweet to Soo Yeon. it makes MY heart go awwwwwwwwwwwww he is so cute . and then remember he’s 15 LOL.

    episode 1 was rather confusing, with plots holes here and there and nothing was properly tied together. but this episode ties everything together more nicely, so now episode 1 makes more sense. will keep watching!

      uh…it’s a drama, you don’t need to tie things nicely together in episode 1, you do it over the course of the drama…. And it’s a bit too early to talk about plot holes when the show’s barely started…..

      It’s true that Episode 1 was confusing though, cos’ the story jumped around a lot.

    i like YEH, wae wae you choose this project.
    based on the rating for episode 1&2,
    it will be a totally flop.

    • 26.1 Grace

      Lol, can never understand doomsayers! Hey, you had better not get the first two questions wrong in a test because it will mean you’ll fail the whole paper and you’ll be a total flop all your life.

      Jokes aside, I really loved the child actors and the veteran casts in this episode, especially Detective Kim. He caught my eye in Baker King and later in Signs. He was always so immaculately dressed that I laughed out loud when I saw him in yesterday’s episode looking so gruff and unshaven.

      The last scene where Yoochun appeared was also so poignant. I like the directing and the whole build up of this drama as the plot unveils.

      @loli – the word flop suits you better

    Am I mean if I don’t want the leads to grow up? I do like Yoochun and Eun Hye but oh my those kids are really good. Hard part about a drama that starts with the younger version is that I miss them so much when they grow up. Forever stopping myself from totally falling for Jin Goo. I must not. I would totally ship the two of them though.

    I’m still not sure about this drama. I do love crying over love stories but too much characters thrown in there make me so confused. Especially if the story can go on without them. But since I’m not into other dramas after Arang, might as well give this a chance.

    Thanks for the recaps gf!

    How come I’m already sad knowing that the young JungWoo & SooYeon will only last just a few more episode?

  29. 29 jae

    thanks for recaps GF! ^^
    child actors are amazing,
    can’t wait for the next episode…

  30. 30 Sajen

    I don’t want to but I think I love Soo-yeon’s mom I mean how can you not love someone who just shows up on someones lawn and moves in uninvited and then doesn’t let them argue.

  31. 31 Anya

    the girl really looks like han ga in.

  32. 32 foolmoon

    Thanks for the recap, GF!
    I got enough with Nice Guy, with the whole uber dramatic life and revenge, and shake-my-head moments. So, I’ll just continue reading your recap.
    My thought is this episode is sweet and I’m sooo glad that Soo Yeon get new kind and sweet family. I hate imagining children living and growing up in a disfunctional family, even if it’s only in drama.
    I sense the doom coming from Detective Kim’s work, since adult Jung Woo becomes a detective and can’t forget Soo Yeon.

  33. 33 ypee

    whatever anyone has to say, i just absolutely love the drama

  34. 34 joy

    I am so hook on with this drama…esp the child actors they did an amazing performance…am looking forward to ep 3 and will finish the race….

  35. 35 faranak

  36. 36 Nilechoclat

    I will watch but when i finish those exams 🙁 I already live in melodrama of exams 🙁

  37. 37 BackEyed

    Why Why this rating 🙁 and why why no sub yet 🙁

  38. 38 rabab

    thank you so much for the recap now i understand each character- i was really struggling from episode 1 trying to understand..

  39. 39 fary

    Thanks for the summary, really was a good chapter where we observed a great tenderness between the characters Dejung-woo and Soo-yeon, the kiss was really cute. This is a great drama and it just keeps getting better.

  40. 40 Sabah

    I pretty much am my own worst enemy. Every time I watch a melo drama, I tell myself, not again or this time is definitely the last time but here I am proffering my heart as a punch bag once again.

    As much as the first two episodes have annoyed me with those unreal complications rather than complex realities, I have to confess, I am smitten. Damn myself!

  41. 41 orphen77

    for those people who comment on ratings, can you not understand that NG is already in nearing its final episode. of course, people’s attention will be on NG. wait until it is finished.

  42. 42 Jae Shin

    Does no one else think that Soo Yeon kinda looks like a gui-shin with her head and hair down like that? ^_^
    But a really cute gui-shin. ^_^
    But still a gui-shin… Hm.

    Thank you girlfriday for the recap!

  43. 43 prettybo

    Thanks for the recap and the snippets of wits that comes with it.

    Now I can fully appreciate what I have seen.

    I am one of the believers that this will become better and better and even the best!

    Next Episode please. . . .

  44. 44 paar

    thanks for the recap!
    i love yeh, i started watching just because it is her drama yet i am already curious about the story
    i didnt watch moon/sun but i think i will just because of cute child actors

  45. 45 lizzzieQ

    These teens are so adorable together (:

    I keep seeing bits of Yoochun in young Jungwoo when he’s being cute and all smiley cheeky, I can’t help it. When he offered Sooyeon friendship with that touch of innocence, confidence, kind but teasing… I got Yoochun vibes all over, heh.

    Anyone wants to tell me how Sooyeon’s water wishing thing works, though? I can’t find a pattern to how she does it, like at the river and the playground bucket of water. Does the outcome depend on when the ripples stop or something?

  46. 46 cris20

    thank you very much for the summary, I’m so hooked on this drama, I have long felt that way to see a drama, with only 2 chapters sincerely this drama has so much potential it’s my favorite.

  47. 47 Jade

    I don’t know why people are fussing about ratings, Nice Guy is coming to end so it’s no wonder Miss You have to suffered a bit in first few episodes. SBS’s drama also look stable in 9% right?
    I believe once NG has ended, Miss You will have better ratings.

    The cinematography and all cast in this drama are excellent. I’m loving the detective ahjussi too.

    Personally I can’t wait for to see how it develop, 2nd ep was cute and I’m so loving it. I just hope they could maintain the balance between heartwarming and tragedy scene so it won’t be too depressing hehe.

    I heard adult cast will take over from end of episode 4, my my…I can’t wait to cheeky Han Jungwoo and grown up LSY.

    Btw, the last scene was gold. I cant help but cry seeing Yoochun saying something like that, look painful. Especially when he bend down his head..gosh

    • 47.1 Misha

      I’m with you. Left the rating obsession to the producers, please, and enjoy the drama, which I found really cute and intense.

  48. 48 nheony

    I don’t know if it’s the way GF recaps this but my heart feels like it’s being pulled in different places. I just love the family bonding scenes here and that ending just killed me. I am excited to see YEH but I do want some more cuteness from Soo-yeon & Jung-woo. Their chemistry is just adorable… I want my own Jung-woo too.

    • 48.1 spellphinx

      yeah! love GF recaps waaaaay better!

  49. 49 ina

    Missing you wth just 2 episodes really stabs me in the heart, can imagine as I too lost a dear friend after leaving school.. 20yrs now, just disappeared into thin air, both families migrated, and all the years yearning, hoping and pining to one day be able to meet again.

    Am sure going to have a heartache following this drama..eeeksss!!

    Im not so sure if I can handle so much angst, I read your summaries for a couple more episodes and decide next
