Full Sun: Episode 12
by | March 26, 2014 | 38 Comments

It only takes one person to start the domino effect and threaten to blow the whistle on Se-ro’s many secrets to just about anyone who will listen. And just when our hero thought that the jig was up, the stakes are even raised higher and he discovers that returning to a life of normalcy will be even harder than he anticipated. Man, it really is hard to see any kind of silver lining in this dilemma when both the chance and choice are pulled out right from under you.

I really don’t know what to tell you all about the ratings apart from telling you that it mirrors the depressing tone of this melodrama. I’d say that would be a good thing only if that number wasn’t the worst one this show has seen yet with a 2.5%. Maybe the idea of Yoon Kye-sang cooking for you might cheer you up?

Se-ro begs Young-won to be by his side, and then appeals to Young-joon to keep his lips sealed for a few more days. He cares for Young-won as much as little bro does, but Young-joon voices his disapproval in Se-ro anyway.

Young-won assures her brother that it won’t take long, and she speaks with Se-ro alone. Challenging his argument that she shouldn’t be left alone, she asks how her brother fits into this. She doesn’t buy the answer that it was nothing, arguing that she saw his panicked state to prevent her from meeting Young-joon.

Slightly frustrated, Se-ro asks if she can’t be okay with not knowing, to understand that there are things he can’t tell her. “That’s deceiving me,” Young-won points out. “That’s to con me again.”

Se-ro requests that they take a break from worrying about what happened or will happen and that she sees him just as he is. Young-won says she wants to believe him because a swindler can be sincere and fall in love like anyone else, but there are so many things he’s hiding from her.

What she’s really curious about is why his tears and wounded expression makes him worry, why he makes her anxious, why he’s trying to protect Belle la Fair, and what secrets he’s withholding from her with Young-joon. In other words, it’s the things he says he cannot tell her.

She demands answers, and Se-ro pitifully asks why she’s so stubborn. He acknowledges that she’s right and that he’ll tell her everything, but now’s not the time. After she regains her health and state of mind, he’ll gladly tell her everything. Until then, he asks that she stay at his place and he’ll tell her his reasons for that later on… even if it’s not the answer she’s looking for. “Listen and trust me.”

After Se-ro drops Young-won off, he returns Young-joon’s text, assuring him that his sister is safe. Young-joon feels that his sister is better off knowing the truth than to end up falling in love with her worst enemy. They agree to meet.

Alone in the apartment, Young-won picks up Se-ro’s whistle and thinks back to how he said it as his only possession, along with his request for her to blow it if she accepts him after knowing the truth.

Jae-in seeks out Kang-jae in hopes that if he packs his bags, Se-ro will follow suit. It’s almost heartbreaking to see Kang-jae act so cold to her now, as he says that she’s mistaken if she was hoping that he’d do whatever she asked of him, since she’s never given a second thought to how it would affect his pride or feelings.

Jae-in points out that she never would have worked beside him if she hated him, only to get an angry, ironic response out of Kang-jae. His about-face legitimately scares her, and Kang-jae drives in the nail that he’s given up trying to impress her. Aw, sad.

She says Daddy Han won’t accept him once he knows Se-ro’s real identity. But that matters little to Kang-jae, who sees that as a challenge: “Do you want to see how far up I can go? ‘I gave up on people, I decided to only think of myself.’ It doesn’t sound all that scary.” Ack, it’s scary for us.

Jae-in won’t be able to persuade him the moment he casts her aside, Kang-jae levels. He then instructs Third Wheel Lackey to keep tabs on Se-ro. Whereas they can’t do anything about Young-joon knowing the truth, they have to think about how to respond once Young-won does.

Se-ro meets with Hama & Hong (those two really come as a set), who points out that he’s trying to stop Daddy Han and protect Young-won all while trying to pull Kang-jae out of the job.

The baddies need solid proof that Lee Eun-soo is the Jung Se-ro they’re looking for, so Secretary Ahn’s lackey delivers a note (as if written by Se-ro) to Grandma with an address. Stop messing with poor Grandma! Hrmph.

Se-ro sits down with Young-joon, who wonders why Se-ro doesn’t hate Young-won unlike the rest of the family. He points out that Se-ro should think of how the truth would affect her, especially since it seems like Young-won’s feelings for him are genuine.

Se-ro says Young-joon will hold off spilling the beans if he truly cares for his sister—if anything, Young-joon should be asking this of him.

They’re not a family to keep secrets to protect one another, Young-joon notes. “Secrets are used like weapons,” he clarifies. Se-ro counters that Young-won has gone through enough because of her family: from losing her fiance and soon her mother’s company, to her selfish stepmother and a brother who feigns ignorance.

Young-joon shifts in his seat uncomfortably as Se-ro confirms the truth of his desire to expose Daddy Han’s misdeeds and how much it pains him to withhold those words from Young-won.

Unable to bear it any longer, Young-joon rises to his feet and asks what Se-ro plans to do. Se-ro honestly answers, “I don’t know either.” But he is doing what he can right now.

At the question of the rumors about buying out Belle la Fair, Se-ro clarifies that he’s going to stop Daddy Han because that’s what’s right. He’s certain that Young-won will understand and afterwards, he’s going to tell Young-won everything.

Se-ro arrives home to check in on Young-won, groceries in hand. He’s doubtful that Young-won will find any connections between FL Gemstones and a professor she’s researching. Exposing FL Gemstones himself isn’t that great of an option either, since it’s unlikely people will believe the word of another swindler.

Young-won asks what his plan is then, but Se-ro says they can talk after they eat. She asks if she looks foolish for actively trying to trust him again, but Se-ro says it makes him want to cook for her “because I’m a better cook than you are.” Haha, I forgot that Yoon Kye-sang once had his own cooking show.

For a minute I thought that Secretary Ahn’s lackey would direct Grandma to the middle of nowhere, but it turns out the address is to Se-ro’s place. While Se-ro prepares food, Young-won asks how he became a con man, since the profession doesn’t seem to suit him.

She asks if his mother is alive, to which Se-ro answers that he honestly doesn’t know nor remember. That prompts Young-won to ask his very first memory then, and Se-ro replies that he already told her—of how he blew the whistle and happily ran away from the police with Dad.

He didn’t choose this line of work because of immature reasons, Se-ro adds, but when Young-won presses for what then, he doesn’t answer.

The doorbell rings and Se-ro is shocked to see Grandma on the other side of the door. He pulls her away so they can talk, but the emotional meeting is enough for the lackey to report back that they’ve got the right man. And Secretary Ahn immediately takes that happy news to Daddy Han.

Once they’re outside, Se-ro asks how Grandma found her way here and seeing the note is enough for him deduce that they aren’t alone. Grandma doesn’t understand anything that’s going on and admits that she’s worried sick and misses him so.

She hits him for keeping her in the dark and wonders if it’s because he finds his weak old grandma bothersome now. But Se-ro retorts that that’s not true in the slightest and promises that he’ll come visit her later on the week.

Grandma asks if she can’t stay with him, and I sorta love how Se-ro falls back on his childish dynamics with his grandmother, telling her that she can’t. This entire exchange is witnessed by Secretary Ahn’s lackey… who’s being watched by our good ol’ Third Wheel Lackey, who’s told to hold off to see how things develop.

Daddy Han is shaken to learn of the Eun-soo/Se-ro connection and asks where his daughter is right now. Secretary Ahn turns to leave when he doesn’t get anywhere with Young-joon, but then little bro stops him to say that he sent noona away to get some rest.

Back at the apartment, Young-won blows on Se-ro’s whistle, and then reads a text from Hama on Se-ro’s phone asking if there won’t be any negative repercussions for exposing Daddy Han.

Searching Se-ro’s computer and his desk turns up nothing (good to know that he’s thorough), but then she discovers a USB in his jacket, which contains the recorded video conversation with Daddy Han. Damn it Se-ro, couldn’t you password protect that?!

Se-ro finds her watching said video and Young-won asks if his plan was to use this in order to threaten her father. He corrects her: “No, I’m going to release it to the public.”

Kang-jae calls to inform Se-ro that Daddy Han knows, so he should pack his bags and leave while he still has the chance. Looking at Young-won, Se-ro says that running away is the easiest thing he can do, but he doesn’t want to run. He urges Kang-jae to change his mind and hangs up.

Se-ro plainly states to Young-won that he wants to take Daddy Han down—she knows that they don’t have much time either and that this is the way to protect Belle la Fair. She asks what he wants from her, if she should cheer him on or thank him for revealing just how horrible her father is.

She admits that she too had vowed to denounce her father, but she’s flustered at the chance of actually doing it because she’s still his daughter. Young-won runs to collect her things so that she can leave, but Se-ro insists that she stay.

“Why? What are you so nervous about?” Young-won asks. Why is he going through such lengths to keep her trapped here when he possesses the necessary evidence against her father?

At his reply that it’s to protect her and Belle la Fair, Young-won retorts, “What are you? What are you in my life?” Their short-lived romance doesn’t give him license to talk to her like this, Young-won argues. Whoa, did we just get a heroine who actually challenges the dramaland trope that a short-term romance = love?

In any case, her words are a major blow to Se-ro, who tries to drop the argument. But Young-won isn’t finished, and she says if this is because how Daddy Han treated Se-ro, then she’ll apologize on her father’s behalf.

That sends Se-ro over the edge and he grabs her shoulder, telling her that he would have never started loving her in the first place if it was all a lie. He bitterly tells her to stay here and to be curious about nothing.

Kang-jae seeks an audience with Daddy Han on the pretense to reveal dirt on Se-ro’s identity. He pretends as if he didn’t already know that Daddy Han found out, and appeals to the chairman’s favor that he intends to be Daddy Han’s man through and through.

Daddy Han has deduced for himself that Se-ro must be out for revenge, and isn’t surprised to hear that Se-ro knows that he was responsible for Woo-jin’s death. Though he isn’t readily accepting of Kang-jae’s offer, he’s willing to put his loyalty to the test.

Daddy Han’s plan is to make sure that Se-ro will never be able to recover his old name and identity, and then happily calls up President Shin. Eek, now Kang-jae is stuck under both evil chairmen’s thumbs, and we see him stop the car to finally vent his pent-up frustration.

Se-ro knocks on the bedroom door, telling Young-won to come eat. She refuses and muses aloud: “There are so many things I don’t know about, right? But there are so many things you know about that I don’t, right?”

She’s given it a lot of thought as to why Se-ro started his revenge, to who he truly is. She asks if it was her father who stole the money for Se-ro’s father’s surgery, and when he deflects, she agrees with him that perhaps the hours alone has left her jump to conclusions.

Se-ro is called outside by Kang-jae, and Se-ro checks in with Young-won before leaving, telling her that his own personal revenge has been taken care of. After he leaves, we see Young-won leave the apartment as well, holding the old whistle in her hand.

After Young-joon is informed that his father knows the truth, he immediately reveals that he knows everything, too. While Young-joon declares that he’ll be the one to protect his sister from now on, Daddy Han suspiciously gauges Madam Baek’s nervous reaction. Oh, you think she told Young-joon, don’t you?

Turns out that’s exactly what Daddy Han thinks, offended that his wife would blab to their son. Does she plan on telling Young-won next? Madam Baek no longer has the right to live in this house, as evidenced by the divorce papers now on his desk.

Young-joon will stay in this house, but nary a penny will be left to Madame Baek in his own will. Furthermore, she’ll be barred from meeting her son anymore, a cruel consequence for Madame Baek.

She brought this upon herself, Daddy Han says, and when asked how he viewed her, he answers, “Someone filled with an inferiority complex.” He admits he once did pity her, though, and angry tears well up in Madam Baek’s eyes as she bites back that he completely ruined her life.

Young-joon is surprised to see his sister arrive at the house and prevents her from heading inside. So she decides to ask her brother what he knows about Se-ro and if his vengeful actions had anything to do with their father.

Unfortunately for Young-joon, he’s a poor liar and Young-won cottons onto the fact that he knows something. Madam Baek steps outside to have a word with Young-won, and it’s sweet how Young-joon is reluctant to leave them to talk.

And if Madam Baek didn’t intend to tell Young-won anything regarding her father and Woo-jin before, she does now.

Se-ro meets with Kang-jae on a rooftop and lets out an ironic laugh that he should call Daddy Han for letting him live another day. We’ve heard Kang-jae address Se-ro by his full name a few times in this episode (versus the more affectionate “Se-ro-ya”), but it’s only now that I realize that it’s a deliberate choice on Kang-jae’s part, to introduce some distance between them.

The gravity of this difference seems to dawn on Se-ro in this moment, too, and Kang-jae announces haltingly, “I’m… going to frame you.”

“I’m going to turn Jung Se-ro’s name into a wanted man,” Kang-jae continues. This confrontation is intercut with what Daddy Han had tasked Kang-jae to do: make it look like Se-ro had stolen a blue diamond. If he wants to clear his name and return as Jung Se-ro, he can reveal himself and go to prison or else live the rest of his days as Lee Eun-soo.

The choice is his, but really it isn’t much of a choice because there will be nothing left for Se-ro to return to if he chooses his former life. Back in the present, Kang-jae urges him, “So leave… and I’ll do my best to stop Daddy Han.”

Tears welling up in his eyes, Kang-jae says there are two things that scare Daddy Han most: that Se-ro knows the truth about Woo-jin and that Young-won is by his side. But Daddy Han won’t be able to touch him if Se-ro leaves, he finishes.

“And what if I don’t?” Se-ro throws back. It takes all of Kang-jae’s willpower to say in a breaking voice that he won’t have a choice if Se-ro keeps standing in his way. Gah, it kills me to see Kang-jae look so tortured.

But Se-ro can only let out a sigh and grits out, “Park Kang jae… you bastard.”

And back at the Han residence, Madam Baek delivers the killing blow: “The one who was responsible for Woo-jin’s death… was your father.”

Young-won has a hard time digesting this truth, so Madam Baek spells it out for her in a monotonous voice: that her father had ordered Woo-jin’s death. Young-won reels in shock.

It’s hard to tell whether Madam Baek is truly sorry to tell her this or if she’s fueled by her anger towards Daddy Han, but we get a hint of an answer when Young-won demands to know how Jung Se-ro fits into this, and Madam Baek gives a tiny smirk.

Young-won collapses to the ground under the weight of this revelation, clutching her chest as Se-ro’s tortured reactions to her insults overwhelm her.

At the same time, Se-ro is astounded that it wasn’t enough that his enemies took his life away once that they would now erase his entire life. “You want me to abandon myself? I may as well die then.”

He vows: “You bastards, I’m going to beat you all. I’ll beat you, and I… I’m going to live again as Jung Se-ro. Why? Because I’m Jung Se-ro!”


Damn, talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place. I admit that I underestimated Daddy Han in his villainry when it came to Se-ro, given how it took him forever and a day to track down the guy he had framed. But it’s unnerving when your baddie isn’t the least surprised that his target is thirsty for revenge and actually comes up with an awfully smart plan to turn the tables in his favor. Like Se-ro said, putting his original name and identity behind is one thing, but now he’s faced with the possibility of the extinction of his entire existence and robbed of that very choice.

I’d say that this is the price you pay for procrastinating on telling the truth, but you have to give the guy points for promising to explain everything once he does (what he feels) is the right thing. What makes Se-ro even more compelling as a character is his desire to yearn for the return of a normal life. Often times, we see so many melodramatic heroes do that initial 180 degree about-face and fall into the depths of greed and vengeance (and fall in love if they have the time), and as viewers, we’re left out of their thought processes or Ultimate Revenge Plan. What differs in Full Sun is that Se-ro’s intentions in this endeavor are explained in a clear and simple to-do list: bring Daddy Han down, protect Young-won, and rescue Kang-jae. And if he has to resurrect his identity over and over again to do it, you know that he’s going to do it.

Ever since Kang-jae and Se-ro decided to split ways, we’ve seen them throw words at each other that have been hard to listen to and seen the both of them shed tears that make it hard to watch. The final confrontation scene added another example of their now estranged relationship, especially with how we kept getting tiny hints in Kang-jae that he’s trying to keep Se-ro from getting involved throughout this episode. I still don’t know what Kang-jae has up his sleeve or if he has any other cards to play now that he too has little choice but to push Se-ro out of this dangerous game of evil. Seeing Kang-jae’s anguished expression was especially hard to bear, and the more formal address of using Se-ro’s full name hammered in the final nail in the coffin that there’s no chance of reconciliation between them now.

So even though Young-won is trying to process the gravity of the truth, it’s the crumbling hyung-dongsaeng relationship between Kang-jae and Se-ro that pains me. What’s a girl gotta do to fix a broken bromance around here?

    Thanks for the recap, gummi.
    OFFTOPIC: I have been refreshing like crazy for gods gift recap for the past 6 hours. Really want to read what everyone has to say about ep 8.

    • 1.1 Lord Byron

      Hi, Gunmi:

      Your download link in Episodes 7 & 11 were not linked to anything. Then the download link in this episode (Ep. 12) takes us to the OST of Ep. 11 instead.

      • 1.1.1 gummimochi

        Yikes! Thanks for catching that! The download link for this episode should work now, and I’ll edit the other one later on in the day. 🙂

    • 1.2 Kaybee

      Oh my! I came here to ask the same! I know it is extremely rude but I couldn’t help myself. I have been refreshing like a maniac….I understand that you guys have a wonderful and busy life outside too and it is impolite to ask especially in a different dramas’ comment section but I am just wondering…. Mianhyeyo~

  2. Hmm

    Omggg what’s with the low ratings? Even Secret Love Affair from the cable network takes over the place. I wonder what Anthony will do in this situation. Thanks for the recap, anyway.

    • 2.1 fun-lugha

      Whats ur take on SLA if I may ask? Personally I dont get it! The whole piano business is just beyond me, I dont get why they fight to keep students etc etc. I dont even get half the dialogue! All I know is they are supposed to have this forbidden affair so I guess thats all am waiting for!

      • 2.1.1 bored2tears

        I gave up on episode 2 because it was beyond boring…and believe me I can usually stand a little boring. Tell me how it turns out…

      • 2.1.2 Blkasian

        It’s funny you ask the question about the piano. I’m having a hard time digesting the fact that these people seem to be getting erotic feelings while playing the piano and reminiscing about the previous encounters. I had to take a step back because it seems like the relationship is developing way too fast. I’m up epi 4 and the husband has moved him into their house. I hope this drama can keep me interested..lol

    • 2.2 Newbie

      As you mention SLA. This show is a true gem and I am very disappointed, that apparentely no blogger recaps it with the exception of Outside Seoul doing some excellent comments on tumblr.

      SLA is such a complex, intelligent and well told story lots of people must be desperate to talk about it (as seen in the comment section of the painting post here on DB).

      Please, pick it up!

      • 2.2.1 Aprilia

        SO EFFIN TRUE. But this is a blog so we can push people to write what we want. You can go to creatingvolumes wordpress where she recaps SLA 🙂

        • Aprilia

          I mean *can’t

        • Newbie

          Thank you so much for the link! Will check it out right now.

  3. byul_love

    Thank God! I’m dying from waiting for the recap.^^

  4. Giegie

    Thanks for the recap.
    I love this show as much as I hate its ratings. Great casts and characters executed well.

    • 4.1 rohaya

      Totally agree with u…100%….how can the rating be that low…..arggghhhhhhh

  5. Mei

    Great drama Ep 12! The show deserves high ratings! Everyone acted so well in his/her role. Full Sun…fighting!

  6. johanna

    I’m happy the truth is out, despite SR (misguided) efforts. He couldn’t freeze time like a certain alien from another show (and get the ratings in passing), keep YW in the fortress, away from the dragons & other witches & throw the key in the moat…
    I like that in this episode YW acknowledges that SR is sincere but let him know that it doesn’t mean he should make decisions for her & keeps looking for answers.
    I was happy to see the little brother stepping up in ep.11 but I found him a little lost, zombie-like here & I’m not sure the writers know what to do with him.
    Then again, great tension between KJ & SR. I hope we’ll see a redemption arc rather a dive to hell for KJ in the remaining episodes…

    • 6.1 rie

      “He couldn’t freeze time like a certain alien from another show (and get the ratings in passing)”

      Totally agree 100000%

  7. Pearl~ai88

    Whoo, it got pretty intense at the end there! I really liked the intercutting of the two revelations- it really heightened the emotion and connected the two scenes. Se Ro shouting his name in defiance and YW crying over his (possible?) identity seemed like cause and effect.

    Don’t even have any more words for Kang Jae. I agree with gummimochi, totally kills me.

    Now that everyone knows everything (YW knows knows who he is now, right? please don’t drag it out any more!) I’m excited for the possible places the story could go. Yay!

    Also, question: gummimochi has SR saying “You guys win” at the end but viki subs have “I will beat you guys.” Rather drastic difference in meaning. which one is right?

    • 7.1 johanna

      Dramafever has : ‘ I’m going to defeat you bastards…’

    • 7.2 gummimochi

      D’oh! Human error. “Beat/defeat” is correct. Can I blame it on my blinding love for Yoon Kye-sang? Hee.

  8. Abbie

    What an intense episode. I pity nearly every character on this show now, even the bad ones. Their whole lives are ruined because of one man who decided a guy wasn’t good enough for his daughter and ordered him killed. I still don’t see what justifies such an action, because nothing does. Daddy Han better be taken down and our heroes (even Kang-jae) all get happy ever afters. After all the crap that guy has put them through, and will put them through, they deserve it.

    I’m still marveling at the fact that this show’s ratings are in the tank. So far, the integrity of the story has remained intact, and I hope it will remain so, but I’m still worried. This show is too good to go completely makjang on us. I hope it remains as wonderful as it is.

    Thanks for the recap, Gummimochi!

    • 8.1 windsun33

      Daddy Han is pretty much a psychopath. Though his words sometimes try to justify what he does as being for his kids or family, that is just a convenient lie.

      I think the main reason he had him killed was because he found out he was gathering info on Daddy Han’s operations – getting rid of an unwanted suitor to his daughter was just a bonus benefit.

      • 8.1.1 Abbie

        I agree 100% with your assessment of Daddy Han. He is a psychopath and I hope all the dirt Woo-jin had on him gets revealed and Daddy Han goes to prison or worse.

        I really hope that Kang-jae was lying about erasing Woo-jin’s emails (or whatever it was) and all this is just another way to get revenge. The only reason he isn’t telling anyone is because he doesn’t want to drag them any further into the mess than they already are. It’s Noble Idiocy, in my opinion. I hope this is true, because I really want to continue to like him. He may do bad things, but he thinks the people he does those things to deserve it, and he wants to protect the people he loves, so he’s a decent guy at his core. All this stuff with Daddy Han is just making it difficult for him, his friends, and for us to see it.

        • Pearl~ai88

          I would agree with both of you too if only every other kdrama bad daddy wasn´t exactly the same- completely emotionless and eeeeeevil for no reason. Unless we want to posit a psychosis epidemic in the kdramaverse… wait a sec, that actually explains a lot….

  9. LookingForBunta

    Thanks again for the excellent recap! And thanks too for the link to the cooking show with YKS! So nice to see him smiling for a change! Something to watch while waiting for next week…

    Each time I watch an episode of BTC, I think–it can’t get any better–and then the next one is better! Love how stuff gets laid on the table–the scene at the beginning where Young-won basically says stop lying to me, the scene with Young-joon and Se-ro where YJ is blasted for not understanding the suffering of his noona, the meeting with Hama & Hong where the whole plot is basically laid out (Save KJ, rescue YW, wreck Daddy Han). So refreshing to see! And honestly, the whole “con” group…look so lost and in-over-their-heads, especially now that KJ is in with Daddy Han.

    I am also sad about the ratings being so low..please writer-nim, do not destroy your show and the actor’s wonderful performances by making a ridiculous ending!

    • 9.1 gummimochi

      There are twelve(?) episodes of that show. Sadly I could only find the pilot with English subtitles. If you find more, share share!

      • 9.1.1 LookingForBunta

        It seems like all 12 shows are on YouTube but I could only find #1 (which you linked to already), 2, 11 and 12 subbed into English

        If these links don’t work, please LMK.

        In the last episode #12, YKS invited his former band members from g.o.d. and he talks about why he walked away from the band and got into acting. It is quite an emotional scene and very touching; I had known he was in a boy band but had no idea how immensely popular they were (I am a newbie to K-Drama world)

    P.S Thanks in advance for fixing the OST link…this drama has got me really interested in some of the artists featured and reignited my love of classical music.

  12. 12 NoNoNo

    The ratings for the last episode was so bad, 2,5% is horrible rating.

    • 12.1 windsun33

      Yeah, not sure why the ratings are so bad. This drama may not be on a par with a few other dramas out there, but it is certainly better than what the ratings indicate. It is going up against God’s Gift, which has been in the 10-12 range, but I think it’s main killer is Empress Ki, which has been running in the high 20’s, a few times in the low 30’s.

    this is definitely one of the best kdramas this year! i luv the chem of HKS & HJH both excellent in their performance! i luv that part where he’s confessing he may be a conman but he’s genuine of his love for her or something like that! best couple of KBS !

    do ratings really matter? for me it doesn’t really but I guess in reality ratings determine whether they get enough viewers to justify the sponsorship? and how bankable the stars/writers/PD are? thus leading to more changes of dramas in future…
