Discovery of Romance: Episode 6

The human mind does strange things with memory. We remember what, when, and how we loved, yet we rarely remember the pain. The good memories fill us with nostalgia, but the painful ones move us forward. It’s through the convenience of forgetting the painful memories that Tae-ha finds himself stuck in the past. But as he digs into his selective memory, he finally takes some steps forward to uncover some hidden truths.

 
EPISODE 6: “Even if the sky falls, I’m not going to you”

Tae-ha stirs awake in the morning with a mysterious microphone and the memory of last night fresh on his mind. He kicks his blankets and hides under them in denial, but he puts on his carefree façade when the interviewer asks him about last night. Flashing a smile, he laughs it off, “I was just a little bit drunk.”

He openly admits that he remembers his confession to Yeo-reum last night but makes an excuse that he was just confusing his old feelings for her. Mmm-hmm. But if there’s one thing that he regrets, it’s suggesting a second round at the noraebang.

Back to last night, we see drunk Tae-ha doing some intense third-wheeling, taking a video of Yeo-reum and Ha-jin singing a couple song and intrusively (and hilariously) dancing.

While Yeo-reum takes a bathroom break, Tae-ha and Ha-jin have a moment for themselves, where they argue over honorifics (and Ha-jin’s refusal to use them). Their argument grows tense, and when Yeo-reum comes out of the bathroom, one of the coworkers tells her that something’s gone wrong between the two.

She runs over, only to see Tae-ha and Ha-jin rocking out to Girls Generation’s “Gee” with some killer costumes and dance moves. HA. Once the song is over, Yeo-reum tries to drag Ha-jin away, but Tae-ha stops him. In memory of the day they officially became hyung and dongsaeng, he gifts Ha-jin with the tambourine and he takes the mic. They part ways with a nice bromantic hug while Yeo-reum scoffs.

Now in his sober state, Tae-ha grabs the microphone and shakes his head while Ha-jin does the same with the tambourine (“Hyung my ass”). Tae-ha throws it away and tells us that alcohol is always to blame. That night is done and over with. And he just confessed his feelings because he was drunk, nothing else. “Why would I like my ex? There are plenty of other girls that like me.”

As evidence of that statement, Tae-ha’s phone rings. Keeping his cool, he picks up as oppa and addresses Director Yoon as if he’s a girl until he finishes the interview. Haha.

Eating breakfast with Director Yoon, Tae-ha asks about terminating the contract with Yeo-reum. Director Yoon tells him not to even think about it, as quality designs at this rate are hard to come by. Then Tae-ha asks if he’s ever liked a girl with a boyfriend. After some thought, Director Yoon says he knows of a guy who loved a married woman, The Great Gatsby. When Tae-ha asks how Gatsby ended up, he deadpans that Gatsby dies.

At that, Tae-ha bursts into complaints. “Is Gatsby crazy? Dying for love? I am not going to die.” Stuffing his breakfast into his mouth, he repeats that phrase a couple more times. “I am NOT going to die.” Haha.

Tae-ha and Director Yoon return to the office just as Yeo-reum and Sol arrive. Tae-ha hides away at the sight of Yeo-reum, but she finds him and strikes up a friendly conversation. She claims that she doesn’t remember anything from last night, not even the confession. Making him antsier, she hands him coffee and fixes his collar.

Unsure of whether or not Yeo-reum is telling the truth, Tae-ha nervously paces in his office. He thinks back to the night when she accidentally slept over at his house and seems reassured at the fact that she didn’t remember then either. She wouldn’t remember last night, right?

Director Yoon invites Tae-ha to lunch with everyone, and though he warily glances at Yeo-reum, he agrees to do so. During lunch, Sol compliments one of the coworker’s manicured nails, which she can’t do because she’s always working with wood. The coworker’s boyfriend paid for her to get it, but she sadly claims to be in an ennui phase in her three-year relationship. Her boyfriend criticizes her looks nowadays, and she’s getting self-conscious.

Director Yoon says that it’s just attention, but Yeo-reum disagrees. She quickly looks at Tae-ha and claims that she knows the feeling of growing apart. That man may have changed.

Flashback to the good ol’ days ten years ago. Yeo-reum tells Tae-ha about Sol’s leave of absence because of her break-up. Though she seems to be seriously telling Tae-ha about the situation, he just smiles because of the cotton candy all over her mouth. Even a little kid comes up to laugh at her face. He doesn’t tell her because he finds it so cute. She eventually sees her face in the bathroom and gives Tae-ha a good punch for not telling her. But their conflict is easily resolved with kisses. D’aww so cute.

Yeo-reum then uses another example to show how her ex changed. In this flashback, she and Tae-ha are out for chicken. She gets her fingers and her mouth covered in sauce, and he just hands her the box of tissues, telling her to clean up after herself.

Back at the lunch, the women coworkers gasp. Director Yoon freezes with disbelief, but all the women seem to be convinced that this change was a serious issue. When asked what happened, Yeo-reum steals glances at Tae-ha and says, “What else can you do with a changed man? There’s no use in fighting. Why do I have to put in effort if he doesn’t put in any?”

Tae-ha glares at Yeo-reum and leaves the table to take care of the bill (and probably to prevent an outburst). She follows after him, leaving to open up her shop. Once they’re out of earshot, Tae-ha corrects her about the chicken memory. According to him, that never happened.

But Yeo-reum makes a point in saying that they remember different things. “Memories that are important to some people may not be as important to others. Like last night. I remember everything.” Uh-oh.

Tae-ha stands speechless and shocked at this revelation as Yeo-reum continues. She accuses him of feigning ignorance and tells him to fess up to last night. He accuses her right back, saying that she knew all along and still decided to introduce Ha-jin to everyone. Doesn’t she think about his feelings?

She replies, “Why should I care about your feelings? You take care of your own feelings. Yeah, I’m a bitch, but I have no reason to care about you. I have someone else to care for, and I need to take care of myself over you.” Oof, cold and pretty bitchy.

Mom’s assistant Gi-eun struggles through a crisis, typing out personal resolutions for what to do with her life. She contemplates her two options – stepping up from her assistant writer position or getting married – presented by her alter egos. But they basically tell her she’s a failure, so she slams her head on the table in defeat.

Producer Bae walks in on her misery and asks where Mom is. Gi-eun says that she’s out to get some sunshine at the school because of her vitamin D deficiency.

At school, Mom watches the boys’ soccer practice, focusing her attention on one particular boy. After practice, she asks him why he didn’t score any goals today, and he replies that his cleats are too small. She tells him to ask his grandma to buy him new ones, and he runs off past Producer Bae, who’s arrived to see her.

Back to the awkward lunch. As the rest of the coworkers leave the restaurant, Tae-ha stops Sol to give her a bag of marinated crab to deliver to Yeo-reum’s father, remembering how much he liked them. Sol freezes and looks at him with disbelief as she reminds him that Yeo-reum’s father passed away – a month before the two broke up, in fact. This seems like news to Tae-ha, and he stops Sol, shocked.

Producer Bae sits down with Mom and admits that he remembers the supposed cheating ten years ago. He had married a woman he’d just met and had no real attachment to her. And Mom had complications with her husband. She cuts him off saying, “Those people who died haven’t done us much good, and we haven’t done anything to be proud of either. But we’ve reached the end with them.”

He asks if Mom still resents Yeo-reum’s father and says that he misses his wife even though her nagging drove him crazy. But she sticks to her perspective: Once they die, it’s the end. She doesn’t even believe in the afterlife anyway.

Back to a shocked Tae-ha, Sol tells him that Dad passed away from a car accident in front of the local pharmacy. She’s baffled that he’s forgotten something as tragic as this, but Tae-ha’s reaction is quite strong, almost as if he’d never known.

Upon returning to the shop, Sol fumes that Tae-ha remembered that Yeo-reum’s father liked marinated crab but didn’t remember that he passed away, while Yeo-reum looks away with an unclear expression.

As Director Yoon drives Tae-ha, he guesses that the ex Yeo-reum discussed was Tae-ha. He shakes his head, thinking about how much wrong Tae-ha had to commit to make a girl still resentful. But Tae-ha remains silent, his mind elsewhere.

Ha-jin’s mother comes in to get some Botox shots from Joon-ho and makes sure that it’s all a secret from her son. But we see that it’s not a secret at all, as Ha-jin casually asks Joon-ho what procedures his mother came in for. Heh.

He opens a text from Ah-rim about the kimbap date but quickly realizes that Joon-ho is looking over his shoulder. After a struggle, he reveals the text, and Joon-ho takes note of this suspicious date.

Ha-jin makes time for this date and looks genuinely happy to see Ah-rim. She asks how old he is, and she happily notes that he’s the same age as her oppa. Ha-jin freezes for a moment as she explains that she got separated from her oppa when she was younger. She thinks that she’ll be able to recognize him right away, even though they’ve spent twenty years apart. And she keeps her scar so that he’ll recognize her.

Ha-jin mentions that her oppa might pretend not to know her, but Ah-rim doesn’t understand. She jokingly says that she’s going to kill her oppa since he made her live this way. They laugh and continue with their meal as Ha-jin continues to ignore calls from Yeo-reum.

Yeo-reum calls him from the clinic, where Joon-ho doesn’t reveal anything and walks away briskly. She finds it strange that Ha-jin’s not picking up, so she tracks him with her GPS. She spots him from outside and witnesses the kimbap date. He’s smiling, laughing, and most importantly, ignoring her calls. The realization (misunderstanding) hits, and Yeo-reum walks away deflated.

As he drives Ah-rim home, Ha-jin asks about her schedule. She’s a busy bee, with her morning juice deliveries, school, and late night work at the bicycle shop. On school days, she barely has time for breakfast. Before she leaves, Ha-jin tells her to ring his doorbell when she delivers juice on school days and she agrees. The car pulls away, and Ah-rim happily admires his courtesy.

Back home, Yeo-reum demands to know everything that Joon-ho knows about the kimbap affair. Sol shows sympathy for him, but the knives are at his throat as the ladies sit and stare him down. Chewing on his dinner and darting his eyes back and forth, Joon-ho quickly analyzes this situation. Yeo-reum left the clinic before he did but came back home later than him, so she must know everything!

He puts his chopsticks down and reveals it all. Ah-rim is still a student, works for juice delivery, and works at the bicycle shop. She took Ha-jin on a kimbap date because he’d agreed to perform surgery for her acquaintances at no cost. Yeo-reum nods, seemingly knowing all of this, and accuses Joon-ho of not telling her about the kimbap date earlier. Sol gives him his punishment – dishes for a month – and Yeo-reum orders him to keep this revelation a secret from Ha-jin.

Meanwhile, Tae-ha drowns his sorrows with drinks and looks through his box of memories. He puts on the wooden couple ring and begins to doubt his supposedly real memories. “Could my memory be wrong? How could I forget that Yeo-reum’s father passed away? I remember everything. Maybe my memories are wrong, maybe that wasn’t our first kiss. Our love may only be in my memory since it seems like Yeo-reum has forgotten everything.”

He spots his camera on the shelf, which triggers another memory. In a flashback, we see Tae-ha carefully cleaning his cameras when suddenly Yeo-reum barges in, accusing him of being late. He’s lost track of time and apologizes for not making it. She’s furious that he made her and her friends wait for two hours at the station. He tries to pull her aside, but she refuses, saying that she knows that she’s not important to him. She tries to throw his camera, but he convinces her not to. She’s on the losing end of the relationship, so she swallows her anger.

With this memory – notably his first bad memory of their relationship – Tae-ha is convinced that he didn’t remember wrong. He calls up his hyung Director Yoon right away, asking him to look into the accident that killed Yeo-reum’s father.

Sol offers to help Yeo-reum track down this Ah-rim girl in exchange for borrowing Yeo-reum’s clothes for her reunion tonight, where Eun-gyu will be waiting for her. She purposefully skipped the first part to make him wait.

She arrives to the reunion and confidently greets Eun-gyu. But he’s there with none other than his current girlfriend. Sol looks crushed, especially when she finds out that they’ve been a thing since he first got hired.

She asks him why he didn’t tell her, and he shrugs it off with a “just because.” Unable to handle this situation, Sol stands up and gives him a good piece of her mind. Calling him a bastard, she accuses him of using her and splashes her glass of beer on his face. She demands another refill on her beer and starts chugging…

And Eun-gyu grabs her arm to stop her from drinking so fast. Unfortunately, it was all her imagination. Sol makes an excuse that she just dropped by and has to leave soon for another appointment. With that, she runs out in tears, completely dejected, and gets in a cab with Taxi Ajusshi, who recognizes her from the other drunken night.

She changes her direction, and once she gets there, she asks Taxi Ajusshi to wait. She stares up at a window, picks up a rock, and hurls it. Watching Sol break the window, he assumes that she slept with the guy (in his mind, Joon-ho) and he broke up with her. Looking straight ahead, Sol tells him that the world has changed, and now those who don’t sleep around are considered the problem. Aww, you poor soul.

The next morning, zipper mouth Joon-ho spills the beans. He tells Ha-jin that Yeo-reum knows everything, but he promises that he didn’t tell her about his long-time search for Ah-rim. As they’re talking, Yeo-reum texts Ha-jin, knowing that Joon-ho told him everything, as the two don’t hide secrets from each other. She lets him know that she’s borrowing his bike.

Wearing shades, she enters the bike store and asks Ah-rim for night lights. As she grabs the lights, Yeo-reum does a quick scan of her and estimates her body proportions. She notices that Ah-rim smiles a lot, but has nothing particularly better than herself.

Saying that she forgot her wallet, Yeo-reum walks out and finds the next store that Ah-rim works at. After a swift interaction involving not buying a sweater, she walks out with the conclusion that Ah-rim does have one thing – she’s nicer than her.

To top things off, Yeo-reum brings kimbap for Ha-jin. He acknowledges that he was in the wrong for not telling her about the kimbap date and says that he’d rather she punch him. She insists that she’s too nice to do that, and they resolve the conflict with him kissing her. She plays it cool but still gives him a subtle vicious look. Yikes, he’d better not get caught again.

Director Yoon reports back to Tae-ha with surprising news that Yeo-reum’s father’s accident is nonexistent. There was never an accident by the pharmacy, and there are no records of Dad’s death from that year. Huh?!

To clear this confusion, Tae-ha visits Yeo-reum at her shop. Though she insists that he just doesn’t remember, Tae-ha begs to differ. He remembers the cotton candy and the chicken, even though he claimed that he didn’t remember the latter.

He admits, “I was so used to having you around that I became too comfortable, so much so that I made mistakes. I wasn’t curious about what you wanted and didn’t care much even when you were in pain. I remember it all, even all the things I did wrong. But I don’t remember anything about your father. You didn’t tell me.”

Approaching Yeo-reum, he demands to know why she didn’t tell him. She’s not fazed by his directness and says that if he’s got such a good memory, he should remember around when it happened as well.

In a flashback, we see Yeo-reum alone at her father’s funeral, calling Tae-ha and asking him to just come be by her side. Back in the present, Yeo-reum accuses him, “There was a first call, a second call, a third, and many more after that. You said you were busy every time and never asked why I needed you. Of all the days that you blew me off because you were busy, think about what day it was. You probably won’t remember because there were so many.”

Unable to contain his frustration, Tae-ha says that she should have clearly told him about her father. But Yeo-reum argues that he should have come to her at least once even without a reason, given that she’d called for his help multiple times.

She seems pretty resolute. “Kang Tae-ha, you said you started to like me again, right? But there’s nothing you can do to go back. We were done five years ago.”

Tae-ha responds that she will come back to him, but Yeo-reum disagrees, “Maybe if the sky falls, but I’m not going back to you.” With a gleam in his eye, Tae-ha grabs Yeo-reum’s arm and says with conviction, “That sky will fall. You can count on it.”

 
COMMENTS

Whoo, he said it. We’ve known for a while now that Tae-ha’s got some lingering love for Yeo-reum, but I’m glad he’s openly admitted it… sober. I loved that Tae-ha was so reluctant to accept his feelings. His denial was so obvious and quite hilarious. He’s been making excuses that these fluttering feelings were absolutely no big deal, and I’m glad he’s finally being honest with himself that no, this is a big deal. That being said, I don’t know how I feel about the progression of their relationship in relation to the whole situation with Yeo-reum’s father. I wasn’t expecting an element of mystery with Yeo-reum’s father, though the few hints from previous episodes did foreshadow the significance of his death. It seems that everything is somewhat interconnected with his death, and it is compelling.

Finding out about Yeo-reum’s father’s passing was the big ball drop that made Tae-ha really think about his broken relationship, and it was definitely necessary. It made him realize his wrongdoings and get the fuller picture of his time with Yeo-reum. I just hope this isn’t a plot device and that they don’t drag on this mystery. I can see the looming cloud of darkness approaching, and I would hate for it to loom for too long. Let’s just hope they flesh this out more in the coming episodes without cutting out precious hilarious moments like the bromance and Eric being a noraebang maniac.

I’m wondering how Dad and his death affected Mom and Yeo-reum. It seems that Mom’s affair happened before his death, and her suspicious encounter with the boy has got me asking so many questions. Did her supposed affair have anything to do with Dad’s mysterious death? Why does she hate him so much? Too many questions for such a stingy show. Yeo-reum’s sudden cold change in personality may also relate to her father’s death. We’ve gotten hints that she had a difficult struggle in their last months, and it seems that her break-up with Tae-ha may have given her a harsh dose of reality. Maybe an overdose of it.

And that may be the reason for her current relationship dynamic. Yeo-reum and Ha-jin don’t seem to be as ideal as we first saw them. They’re showing us that they have more of a dysfunctional relationship. They’re storing ammo against each other, ready to reveal the other’s secret right when it’s opportune. And poor Joon-ho needs to deal with both sides. She’s silently vicious and manipulative, and though it is scary, I wonder how badly she needed to be crushed to change from her bubbly naivety to a being a calculating bitch. She scares me sometimes, but her jarring personality change now seems more tragic than chilling. Ha-jin, on the other hand, just seems a little insensible and oblivious. There’s nothing good that’ll come from hiding a sisterly relationship, and his reluctance to just tell the truth is making me suspicious.

Perhaps it’s the tragedy that Tae-ha sees when he realizes the person Yeo-reum has become. He’s affected by her bitchiness and sees the manipulation she’s mastered, but he knows that there’s a better, brighter, and more genuine side to her. She has the right to be whoever she wants to be, but it seems that she’s lost her sincerity. Maybe it still exists, maybe it doesn’t, but I think he’s the only one who can bring it back. And he’s taken a big step forward by remembering all the memories – the good and the bad – and admitting his mistakes. He did make mistakes, and it’s not going to be easy to make those amends.

But Tae-ha’s not taking this lightly, and I love the determination he’s showing to get her back. I’m hoping that his determination and lurve will melt Yeo-reum’s cold façade and help her come to terms with her unresolved issues. She deserves happiness with someone who will be honest, accept her flaws, and stay by her side. I understand her choice at the moment, but things are far from over.

Yeo Reum'd selective memories of the bad memories does nothing to move forward either and I say that. not just in this drama's context only.

I don't think that is all the truth we see yet. I still root for Tae Ha & Yeo Reum not because the heroine has to end up with the 'jerky' leads but because I can relate to their flaws and how to communicate with each other better.

Tae Ha is no 'perfect' guy like Han Jin but he isn't that bad for make me stop rooting for him. So yes TaeReum ship all the way!!

At the beginning of this episode, Kang Tae Ha admits Yeo Reum becomes a little bit evil. But he doesn't show his angriness about that. I hope he start to realize that he's one factor that contribute Yeo Reum changed her view about relationship so he will be the one to put Yeo Reum back to her bright and sincere girl as before.

The show still full of mystery…looking forward another surprise for the next episodes…

The witty bromance is best in this episode. But I don't mind to see their cool fighting scene like in the end of episode 4….haha...

watching their bromance in the karaoke scene, I really hope they make Taeha & Hanjin to be good friends later. I remember in the very early teaser, Hajin asked Taeha, hyung what are we going to do.... not too sure if it was Sung Joon saying to Eric or it's Hajin saying to Eric but gosh more bromance please!

Agree with all you said. I can't wait for Taeha to be more sensitive and care more for his woman now that he isn't under so much presure like he was so no excuse there. And I hope Yeoreum return to her bright & cheerful self like she used to. But just 6 episodes in, I bet they'll play our emotion some more. I bet they'll make Taeha turn more harsh for while seeing Yeoreum playing with his confession lol

It's interesting even though Tae Ha selectively remembers the good parts of their 5 years relationship, he says things as it is in the interview the morning after the karaoke & confession. He hasn't lied or cheated any one. And I like that

Can't wait to see what the mystery is surrounding the death of Yeoreum's father and if it has any significant to the TaeHa-Yeoreum-Hajin's relationship. I'm guessing when Yeoreum's roomies find out Taeha wasn't told of the father's death, they won't hate him like they used to.And they may help bring Taeha-Yeoreum closer together?

I love Eric's intensity, whether he was being intensely romantic, intensely angry, intensely charismatic or intensely silly (the noraebang part was HILARIOUS!!). He is an enigma and I can't have enough of that :DD

For me, Eric is one of very versatile korean actor. He can figure out all emotions and I could be with him enjoying the show, whether the scenes are crazy, silly, intense, flirty, cute, happy or teary. So to me is enough to say he's one of the best k-actor. Just wondering why he doesn't wanna do movie projects more..

I saw Eric in Firebird. Honestly, he looked super handsome but his acting still a bit awkward. After Super Rookie period, his acting became really solid. I love all his performance, even in Spy Myung Wol. In my opinion, he's one of k-actor who always total in every role he's playing. Even changing extreme hair style, like balded in Korea Secret Agency, which made me shock after seeing how handsome he was in Firebird with mustache and chaebol style.

Still not here for Taeha and I'm really starting to think Ha Jin being adopted is a secret because it'd be easy to explain who she is otherwise

YeoReum didn't saw anything wrong or bitchy when she told Taeha that should doesn't need to worry about his feelings and she has someone else to care about. Those are the facts...and with his previous behavior if she cares less than zero that means she's over him and I'm glad

I suspect many noonas and ahjummas in the audeince agree. She's got a lot on her plate (just-hanging-in-there business, problems in her relationship, etc), and he's being a bit selfish and pushy by manipulating her into dealing with him. I don't have a lot of sympathy for someone who only gets what he's lost once someone else has it. I think he needs a pretty extensive character turn-around to make him ready to be OTP. It's OK for a drama I guess, but if she were a friend of mine IRL, I'd tell her she was spot on in being so harsh. He wasn't exactly listening when she asked him to butt out before. Kind of a red flag. He seems controlling and selfish.

Me too. One if the things I normally hate is the ex that shows up when it's convenient for them and just when the other is moving in all aspects of their life with someone better. Too many movies have this plot and I almost always root for the girl to go on with new and better (they rarely do though). But here I am all about TH and YR getting back together. Despite what YR says they are very much not resolved and over.

Me too to be honest. I want them back together in the end but as of right now in her min she's over him and has a good man that she loves, why should she care about his feelings? He's just an ex, just her boss. It's not cold or bitchy to tell someone you don't recuperate feelings fif to work it out on their own and get over you because you ran of into them like that (ie Sol an EK). It was nice and refreshing to see a k heroine not swoon or waver over such a confession like has become the norm.

What a treat this episode is, and what a treat to have dramallama with us!

And just to be clear, dramallama's translation of the the last exchange is spot on and really well done. What is missing sometimes from recaps is the wordplay and the artistry of the dialogue is sometimes glossed over.

Here, as dramallama says, KTH says "THAT sky will fall" (not "the sky will fall"). That's kinda important, because KTH isn't saying that heavens above Yeo-Reum will fall, but that THAT GUY (whoops, I meant sky, hehe) will fall.

Wonderful recap, and thank you. I am officially over FTLY and will be enjoying your recaps and the drama for the duration!

*wave*

That is a very good point a bit lost in translation for me watching, thank you dramallama!

Still, i am not too hot about heroine always having only choices between two men and never a happy ending of none of the above. It would have gone down easier if he put it as THAT sky/guy falls down, I will still be here (in my hell loving you).

If i were YR, she is actually being brutally honest, no game nor manipulation, not even just to be evil towards TH because atvm she is hammering in the point there is no chance in hell she will go back to him and TH should have a hint earning back his memory lapses… but this is exactly the beauty of Kdrama romance, riding along the ebb and flow of the OTP through all the cliches to the neat happy ending.

I wonder how tall Sol is.

She ia fast becoming a fav of mine.

so funny. Yeoreum might be taller and prettier but Sol has got oodles of personality and spark.

If I were KTH I would ditch the ex and go for new cow rather than old cow. Just sayin.

Sol and TH?!?!?! Lol We all love Sol and i am shipping YR and Sol forever. Sol offers to get AR's blood on her hands just to be repaid by borrowing a dress, and she would date her bff's scummy ex she hates?! What gives?! Haha and TH can not even handle a much more straightforward YR while they dated, he was so assured when they met again he still had that magic of figuring YR's every emotion. Sol is more out there a handful, he is such a competitive perfectionist he will never fight a battle he sees no chance winning… there is the 32 by her side DJH to beat for one.

I just want to say that I understand why YeoRum did not directly tell Taeha that she needs him because her father died . Maybe after enduring the countless times she was ignored by Taeha because of his work or his complacency with the relationship, she reached her limit. If he just visited her once to check whats her problem, he might have known about the death of YeoRum's father.

Exactly. One one hand she should have to him then on the other hand there are just something's you shouldn't have to tell. From that phone call (and the many others) he should have been concerned enough to go be by her. If a friend or lover called me with such distress at dome point or another I am getting back to them and seeking what the problem is/was, how they are doing, and how I could help. For him to not honor even at some point call her back or ask her about it, is both being a bad boyfriend and person.

Spot on. Even for a friend, the true ones are those who would drop everything the moment he/she hears how upset you are. Explanation be damned.

I too agree with Yeoreum here because I have been in her place. I understood why she was so upset at that time. Although I do agree that it will be easier to tell him the truth, it was not really the point. He has ignored her countless calls before and she has reached her limit.

This might be far-fetched but do you think that the little boy is Yeo-reum's father's child? This conclusion is because
A. The kid was clearly special to Yeo-reum's mom maybe because she remembers her husband through him.
B. Yeo-reum's dad did something so wrong that really angered the mom around 10 years ago. The kid looks around that age.

Does anyone else think so? :)

My feeling is that it's Mom and Director Bae's kid from their one night stand. Dad probably refused to raise someone else's kid and got into the fatal accident after arguing about that. Mom then gave birth and left her son in a Halmoni's care close enough to keep an eye on him.

dad didn't have an accident. eric checks for records of it and there aren't any. it's all very strange how did he die then and why do yooreum's friends know a fake story?

I think the kid is the result of director Bae & Mom's one night stand. Kid is being raised by someone else & Mom is secretly financially supporting....that's why Mom is always so exact about any/all monies owed to her?

Possibly, Father found out or Mom told him & he committed suicide.
Maybe...Yeo-reum doesn't know it wasn't an accident.

Maybe ...Rather than air dirty laundry (infidelity as reason for Dad's suicide), Yeo-reum was told Father had accident?

When the truth does finally come to light, this could open up new wounds and and fuel Yeo-reum's resentment of Eric even further.

@Isnin..

I think you may be on to something there. The kid is the love child of YR's father and the other woman. That's probably why her mother's best-friend had also come there to watch the young child. Also, maybe Yeo Rim lied about 'how' he died because it was probably too scandalous to begin with.

Anyway.. whatever it is plz drama gods get it over and done with, I don't want it interfering too much with our OTP. Eric is such a hunk by the way! I agree with the earlier poster when they stated that he was some kind of 'enigma'. He sure is!!

Thanks for the recap! :-) :-D

Thanks for the recap!!

Am I the only one who thinks that Yeo Rum was wrong for not telling Tae Ha about her dad? You can't expect people to read your mind like that.
I understand why she felt like he wouldn't come anyway, but not telling him is bad communication.
One thing I've learned the hard way about relationships- platonic, familial, or romantic - is that you can't expect people to just know how you're feeling. It's expecting too much of any human being and abit self centered. It's easy to assume that lack of perceptiveness means not caring, but come on, you've got to talk things out! You've got to give people the benefit of the doubt.

**End of rant.

Loved the episode. Understand Yeo Rum to a point. She was still wrong for not telling Tae Ha.

Think of it hypothetically...if she tells him and he comes...shes going to be just as unsatisfied because shes always going to question "did he come because I needed him or because the a big "event" happened. In that sense YR's way of dealing with the situation is close to how people react in real life...

I honestly didn't understand why she didn't tell him. I can understand her feelings about him not coming when she said repeatedly that she needed/wanted him and she was clearly upset on the phone. But I see absolutely no good reason for her not to have come straight out and tell him that her father had died. I really can't sympathize with her actions because I can't understand them at all. If I were Tae Ha, at this point I would totally change my mind about getting back together with Yeo Reum, because in my opinion what she did was just beyond the pale. But I'm getting the feeling that there's more to the father story than we're being told -- why is there no record of his death, or the accident he supposedly died in? -- so maybe her behaviour will make more sense as things unfold.

I can understand why she didn't tell him.
She probably didn't get a chance to!!

Before her father's death...there were probably many times she had called him because she needed/wanted him and he blew her off for any number of reasons.

Now a tragedy happend, and she genuinely needed him. She calls..& he doesn't know that THIS time is any different. He probably blew her off again and she didn't get a chance to explain why THIS time was any different.

Then, as time goes on, the event has already passed. Her anger & resentment grew because she'd already went through it all without him....So, why even tell him about it now at this point.

To her it's over & the whole situation was proof to her that he really didn't care about her at all.

I can see it - b/c Yeo-reum wanted to see if Tae-ha would finally pick her over what he was supposedly doing.

Yeo-reum made repeated phone calls asking him to come (and I'm sure there was a sort of desperation in her voice), but he ignored it as usual.

I appreciate the explanations, and maybe it's me... if a loved one of mine died, and I was calling my significant other to ask them to come comfort me or be by my side, literally the first thing out of my mouth as soon as they answered the phone would be, "My father [or mother or sister or cat or whoever] died!" That takes all of two seconds to say, in one phone call. So I don't see how she didn't get a chance. If he answered the phone--and from what we've seen, he did--she had the chance, several times because she called several times.

If the reason she didn't say it was because she wanted to see if he would finally pick her over whatever else he had going on, my reaction to that is somewhat unsympathetic. Your father died and instead of being open with your longterm boyfriend (who obviously cared enough about your dad to remember, 5 years later, what foods he likes), you're going to prevaricate as a way of testing his affections? I can't get behind that.

I know that Yeo Reum made the general point that there were a lot of occasions when she was having a hard time and Tae Ha wasn't there for her when she really wanted and needed him to be, and she felt that he was indifferent to her feelings. But it feels like she was saying, "You're not being there for me when my father died was just like all those other times you weren't there for me." But that's not fair to him, because if he had known what had happened, he might have behaved differently. By not telling him (neither at the time, nor in the whole month until they finally broke up), she didn't give him the chance to make an informed decision about how he would handle this particular situation. It's like, "I especially wanted you to be there for me when my father died, even though I never actually told you that he'd died."

Which is not to say that I think Tae Ha is the good guy! To me it's clear that both of them were doing little things that contributed to the decline and fall of their relationship; the whole thing with her father's death was the last straw, the tipping point, and it was symptomatic of problems on both sides. What I like about the show is that it doesn't seem to be taking sides; episode by episode we see that neither Tae Ha nor Yeo Reum can conclusively claim any moral high ground.

I think in relationships be it love or friendship, you dont need to be told a valid reason like a death in the family to check upon a girlfriend or friend. All it takes is a little concern for that person. If you get several calls from some friend or love ones asking you to come, wont you be curious why she's doing that.

Taeha's lack of interest in her at that lowest point in her life was the breaking point of their relationship. It made her realize and accept finally that she is not important anymore in Taeha's life.

I largely agree with both your points.

But that doesn't change my point, which is that I see no reason why in the several phone calls she made to him, she couldn't just have come out and say "My father died." She said that he never asked why she wanted him to come, but in the conversation as we saw it, it seems that she asked him to come, he asked why, and she said, "Can't you come without asking why?" He asked, she had the chance to tell him, she chose not to, and then gets annoyed at him for not reacting the way she wanted to something he didn't even know about. Tae Ha's behaviour was faulty, but I think he is nevertheless right to say that she should have told him the truth properly at the time. Both of them behaved in ways that were not going to do their relationship any good.

And then she tries to tell him that it was just that he didn't remember! He didn't remember because she never told him! How can he remember something he never knew? I think it's the way she got all self-righteous about it in the present-day of the story that I find really annoying, actually. If I was Tae Ha at that point, I would just have been like, "You know what? Girl, bye."

But what if you were yourself still in a daze and disbelief and utter shock of the passing, especially when it was an abrupt accident to even put it to words?! It is easier said than done ( no pun intended).

Grieving is personal with all have our own pave and terms, just accepting your very dear one is gone forever can never be easily put into words.

I am willing to give some benefit of the doubt about her being in shock (although I will admit that I do so grudgingly), but I still find it questionable that for the whole month between the funeral and their break-up she said absolutely nothing about her father's passing. If she was withholding the information from Tae Ha all that time because that's the way her grief was manifesting, how is Tae Ha supposed to help her through something he doesn't know about and that she won't talk about?

Basically, for whatever reason, they had the kind of communication breakdown that, unless it is tackled head-on (and with love and good intentions), will absolutely destroy a relationship because there is so much going unsaid and so much associated misunderstanding and resentment building up. It's nice to imagine that the other person in the relationship will just know and understand things about us perfectly through the power of love, but in reality it's usually the case that, hard as it may be, you gotta learn to talk that shit out if you want to make it work.

The thing is - in the one scenario, he comes to her b/c he wants to (feels that she needs him and wants to assuage that feeling).

In the other scenario - it's almost out of a sense of duty/what's expected.

If announcing that a parent has suddenly passed away is what is required to get one's arse to be w/ the significant other - then there are deep, deep issues.

0

Yes, I acknowledge that there are issues with that. And if your parent dies and you go a whole month, have the funeral and everything, without telling your significant other, and then break up with them still without telling them, then that's also an issue. There are issues on both sides. That's my point.

How about seeing YR in the brightest positive strongest light 5 years ago, trying to balance her acts of savaging the relationship while personally going through the griefing with actually consideration of TH's well being? She knew he was going through a lot of stress from work, very lack of sleep and he did go along with their special anniversary trip and that was when she planned to tell him and mourned the passing of Dad together in a special meaningful place for them…after she had sorted her devastating emotions out herself and calmed down. We have to bear in mind and assume YR did not go through an 180 the 5 years with TH and she was still that very independent spontaneous gullible girl who can find a roof for the night anywhere and would forgive his every neglect easily. We have seen her a few times trying to initiate very basic chitchat on the train to his shut out. They were at the tailend of their tarnished relationship, if she did not feel as secure and she did not want to further stress their tension why would it be such a terrible slight for her to not air out her very vulnerable state of mourning with her Father which I can respect she might want to go through it alone, he was that dear and special to her?! I would even go further there might be a fear in her what if she told TH and she is still ignored and thus a disrespect to her Dearest Dad?! That would've gone through my mind if i were in her state.

@Ilovekimchee

I agree with you totally!!! I also, noticed the writer(s) trying to overcompensate the reasoning behind her actions was that she called many times. But I'm sure if someone called me many times, excessively as they would have us believe..there is NO WAY that Kang would not had at least asked once what was wrong. And they have tailored his character as having his own reasons why at times he was not there for her. So why completely ruin his misunderstood character to be that of a complete arseh**e, whom to his core really doesn't give two cents about her and only wants to mess up her life! That would make him a douche wouldn't it?!
And I don't think that's what they're going for. Bad writing in my opinion because come on.. we all have one time or another taken our partner/spouse for granted and have been selfish. Its called being human. But if they (writers) want me to believe that Kang never asked then that is a clear indication that he never really cared/loved her to begin with. They need to make up their minds who this Kang character is supposed to be in the eyes of the viewer.

My apologies for being long winded, its a gift! Lol

You can understand where YR is coming from, and as someone who has been on her end of a relationship, I absolutely do. However, you can't absolve her. Her treatment of not only her boyfriend but of her ex straddles the line between cruelty and manipulation. It's childish. I'm glad that for all his considerable shortcomings TH has recognized, or is starting to recognize the extent of what he's done to YR and is trying to move forward and fix things. YR on the other hand sees no fault in her own actions, or the part she played in the dissolution of their relationship, and refuses to take responsibility.

What's worse is her perception of how things went is being encouraged by her friends, who don't know any better. I agree that TH may be the only one to bring her back to the way she was, since he's part of the problem. But I'm not sure I care anymore. She should be sympathized with, but not excused.

i'm put off by the number of times that the recapper calls yeoreum "bitchy." what's wrong with her coldly rebuffing her ex's advances, when she's in a committed relationship? i'm also not sure what she means when she says that yeoreum seems like she's lost her sincerity- yes, she's a little manipulative, but she loves ha-jin and her friends genuinely.

on another note, i doubt that their relationship is purely brother-sister. she seems attracted to ha-jin in a romantic sense, anyway.

really enjoying this show so far, although i'm not very interested in the mother and producer bae's storyline.

Nothing wrong with her for rejecting Kang Tae Ha. And in my opinion, as the one who's in relationship status, she should reject Kang Tae Ha. But the problem here is she admits that she's happy with Tae Ha's confession and has intention to take revenge so Tae Ha can feel what she felt before. I can understand her feeling but most of audiences who're not familiar with this 'real' character see her as the 'bad' girl.

Until now, honestly I really don't understand her feeling towards her current boyfriend. She seems using Ha Jin to recover her broken heart and practice her 'strategy' in relationship as she said the one who loves more will be the weaker party. In fact, she keeps mentioning, comparing and praising Nam Ha jin in childish way (saying that Nam Ha Jin is perfect boy friend…bla..bla..bla..) especially in front of Tae Ha which makes me think actually she still has feeling for her ex boy friend. Maybe most of us who have experiences to deal with our exes might be agree that the way Han Yeo Reum handle the presence of Kang Tae Ha is a bit immature. But that makes this show more entertain. Eventhough when they meet they keep bickering, I love to see their interaction. Because they just can be themselves. Tae Ha and Yeo Reum know each other too well. That's why Yeo Reum's 'tricks' don't work with Tae Ha.

I agree with you about Ahn Ha Rim. She has crush on him since Ha Jin always be good to her. But, who wouldn't when someone offer free surgeries not only for you but for your relatives too. beside, the doctor is handsome…I'm sure they aren't siblings.

Same as you...If I can ask the writer, I want her to skip the story about mommy-producer but more about another love triangle Yoon Sol-Do Joon Ho-director Yoon. Both guys are nice, witty and sincere. what a lucky girl….

i wrote how i felt about yeoreum's reaction towards his confession on the recap for episode 5...you can go look at that if you care, i guess.
it's been quite a long time now since they've broken up. she's the one who's moved on. yes, she's still bitter because they never had closure, but at least now, she doesn't have romantic feelings for him. she's the main character, so the drama would make that explicit if she were.
with ha-jin, i feel like she does love him, but deliberately keeping herself from being too vulnerable so that she isn't the one who seems to be more emotionally invested in the relationship. i don't think she's using him.

By now, we've seen how each episode reveals layers of deception and self-deception on the part of ALL of the characters, including the secondary characters. I expect that this episodes revelations will promptly be scrambled in the next one. I like how the show is using the pseudo-documentary stuff to show the self-deceptions as well as the lies they tell to each other.

Our opinions of the characters shift as we learn more: was Ha Jin cheating on Yeo Rum by going on these blind dates and asking their mutual friend to lie to cover up for him? Was he just indulging his mother to get her off his back, and avoiding an uncomfortable conversation by not telling his girlfriend about these dates? When is it cheating? when is it lying? How justified is Yeo Rum in getting mad at Ha Jin or Joon Ho for their repeated dishonesty about Ha Jin's "dates-that-are-not-really-dates" when she hasn't told him about her ex, has lied spectacularly and repeatedly about their relationship, and continues to expect her roommates and her ex to lie for her as well?

Really, is there any character that has not been lying in some way to friends or family, or to self? Maybe Ah Rim?

If we go back and watch the different versions of the break-up scene in light of new story about Yeo Rum's father's (supposed) death, then that whole dialogue about "why don't you ask me why I've been crying?" changes meaning yet again.

What we think we know so far is that Yeo Rum has tested Tae Ha by deliberately withholding the information that her father has died (or at lest that seems to be what she thought, as far as we know) to see if he'll come when she called, and that he failed her test. Was that fair? Was he neglectful in their relationship? probably. Was she justified in being hurt by his behavior? probably. But to deliberately withhold the information about her father's death and funeral is a different level of dishonesty, to me----but maybe we will get a new level of complication to that story. Did the father actually NOT die, as Tae Ha's investigation seems to suggest? If not, did Yeo Rum know about it, or was she deceived by her mom and dad?

I should construct a "lie map" to see if I can keep them all straight :)

Yes, exactly! And 100% agreed with the rest of your comment. It expresses, pretty much word for word, my feelings about the series so far. The way the story of their break-up is unfolding bit by bit reminds me of the Ani DiFranco song "Hour Follows Hour" (which always makes me cry, because I'm a sap like that):

hour follows hour
like water follows water
everything is governed by the rule
of one thing leads to another
you can't really place blame
cuz blame is much too messy
some was bound to get on you
while you were trying to put it on me
and don't fool yourself
into thinking things are simple
nobody's lying still the stories don't line up
...
maybe the moral higher ground
ain't as high as it seems
maybe we are both good people
who've done some bad things"

What I love about the story as it unfolds is that it isn't black and white and it isn't cut and dried, and there's no clear good person and bad person as far as the break-up went. Their relationship collapsed under the weight of each of them being their flawed and fallible human selves, not necessarily because one of them was right and the other was wrong.

I feel like this might be the show I was really hoping that Emergency Couple would be.

Things have gotten a good bit more entertaining these last 2 eps due to the improved situations and writing.

A nice interplay btwn the cute/humorous and the more emotional or confrontational scenes.

The flashback where Yeo-reum get angry at Tae-ha for not informing her of the cotton candy bits on her face w/ the miffed head swivel (w/ the requisite sound effect) and the jab to the stomach w/ the scrunched up mouth was too cute (Jung Yumi is the master of cute facial expressions w/o dwelving into the fake cute/cloying territory).

Joon-ho's mouth zipper moments and then letting loose the info when confronted by the girls (after a quick calculation) was comedic gold as well.

These light moments nicely balanced the emotional kick upon learning of the timing of Yeo-reum's father's death and Tae-ha seemingly not knowing it.

I like that they have taken things slowly w/ Director Yoon's seeming interest in Sol since Sol is still so tied up emotionally w/ her ex.

As for Ha-jin and Ah-rim - don't see a reason for Ha-jin not to have told her that he is her oppa from the start, unless he has an ulterior motive (if this relationship turns into a potential romance - bad call by the writers).

Right now, that relationship is kinda boring (aside from when Ah-rim will find out about Ha-jin's identity).

The actress playing Ah-rim is cute and all, but those nicety-nice girl characters tend to be a bit boring (Yeo-reum in acknowledging that she is not as nice as Ah-rim is a big reason why she is the more interesting character).

Well, there seems to be a bit of mystery as to Yeo-reum's father's death and why mom is so angry at him (and why she treats Yeo-reum as she does) - but I hope the writers don't drag this out too much.

Overall, the show has gotten much better and is pretty entertaining.

I doubt Ha Jin saw Ah Rim as a child-hood sweetheart since there is such a big age gap btwn them.

She really was a "kid sister" to him - and now that we know they are not really brother/sister, the whole romance storyline (if there is one as it looks like it's going to be) is just too easy/predictable - which is what I have issue with.

Love love the comedic moments among the friends. The actors have great chemistry and they blend the humour in so naturally that you actually believe that they are old friends. The writing is very TvN I must say and I was right. The writer wrote a number of dramas for TvN. If KBS and SBS or MBC have produced this kind of writing or ensemble before, please recommend me those dramas. I have only started watching KDRAMA since Goong and Full House.Hee.

I am probably the only one hoping that Yeoreum will stick it out with Hajin. At least for now. The last episodes so far seem to tell me the story of how Taeha lost Yeoreum. Both of them changed in the last 5 years and much have happened in their 5-year relationship. It was unfortunate that both of them were young and learning about communication and balancing worklife and relationships. Yeoreum became a less give-in person, getting what she needs in the new relationship. Taeha finally understood what he did to her and willing to change and treat her better, but like she said to him, memories are different to each person. She remembers the pain. Unless she forgives him and willingly gives him a chance, it will never work. Although she refuses to remember that she begged him to stay with her 5 years ago, Taeha chose to end it. Both of them needed that break.

She seems really happy with Hajin, although I know shit will hit the fan soon with the secrets. I want Hajin and YR to work it out. Secrets are horrible things. They are slow poison. So even though she became a different person, and I personally think that she handles conflicts better, she has room for improvement. Hajin too. Both she and Hajin seem to acknowledge their secrets and its a crazy compromise on both their parts. "I will let you keep that secret if you let me keep mine".

I still believe this is the story of how Taeha realises he has lost Yeoreum. Unless writer tells me otherwise. Hee. I want it to be like 'My Best Friend's Wedding'. Taeha will be a better man in another relationship, and Yeoreum will work it out with Hajin. To me, there was no indication that she still loves Taeha.

No…no…no...please writer-nim…let Yeo Reum-Tae Ha together at the end. Que Sera Sera is more than enough for us to see both of them suffering…LOL….

I'm rooting for Tae Ha honestly because it's played by Eric, at first. But the more episodes, I could see he still deeply in love with her and try hard to get back. Even though in real life if it happens I have no sympathy for someone who disturb another person's relationship. About Yeo Reum, really I don't know her feeling. I'm sure she loves her current boyfriend, but I doubt she still have feeling for Tae Ha too.

I love to see YR-TH together, because they can be themselves (shouting, bickering, joking around which I find more alive than she's with Ha Jin). Another thing is, it seems they still didn't finish their business from the past relationship. Whatever the ending will be, at least I can enjoy all the actors performance. Especially Eric. I love him from long…long…time ago…since silly officer Kang Ho in Super Rookie.

Okay I'm glad I'm not the only one finding YR's behaviour really irritating. It's getting to the point where I can't really stand watching this drama, which saddens me because it was so exciting at first.
YR is such a hypocrite! She tells HJ that they shouldn't lie in their relationship bla bla, but she's the one with the biggest lie ever! She thinks she's told him 'everything', "I work with TH, we had lunch" but she hasn't even told him that they dated and expects HJ to be equally as honest with the whole sister-not-sister(?) thing! She's horrible as a character! Not only that, but she keeps going on about how TH didn't care etc etc, but she just sounds like a child who wants/wanted attention but didn't get any. Unless TH cheated on her or whatever, I don't see why she had the right to complain about not being given attention. The guy (from a rich family I presume) just wants to prove himself and his capabilities without leeching off his family's name. Furthermore, the fact she withheld her father's death from her supposed partner/lover/bf is just stupid. Is she a fifteen year old teenager? People don't read minds, if she has something to say she should just say it! So frustrating!!!! I reckon they should just bring in another female character for TH so that YR can see what she has lost too. Sigh. Goodbye, Discovery of Romance.

Wait. You're telling me that two people who dated for FIVE years didn't know when their significant other's FATHER passed away? Come on. Let's be real. SERIOUSLY? I can't.

And five years later, YS is still angry, upset, and fuming over "bad" memories? She's clearly not over it. And the fact that she is 32 but playing mind games and jealousy tricks, she hasn't matured or grown from her past relationship either. I don't care what kind of relationship it is - be it platonic, familial, romantic - communication is key. And she doesn't do any of it. There hasn't been any growth from her part, from 22 to 27 to 32. She's the same as she was 10 years ago. That's just...sad and pathetic. It's like the writer is trying to inject some sympathetic sob story so we can feel like YS is entitled to something, but it makes her even less likable.

I hate the victimization, self-entitlement stuff. No, people don't just KNOW what you're thinking. You have to tell them. It'd be different if TH was straight up a jerk and completely insensitive, but I fault YS mostly in that she didn't express what she needed clearly. She wanted to go on a trip, he took her on a trip. If she needed him to coddle and baby her, then all she had to do was say so. Ball would be in his court. If he denies her then, THEN I would feel sympathetic.

Up to this point, all of her relationships are built upon mind games and expecting people to know how she feels. Come on girl, you're 32. Grow the hell up! At this point, I can't help but root for both of the male leads to NOT be with her and move the hell on. They're just asking for trouble.

I'm mostly watching this to see the two supports. JoonSol all the way! They are hilarious and that blatant honesty with each other is what I appreciate (FLUSH THE POOP!). More JoonSol please! To me, their relationship seems more real. They're friends, brother/sister, parent/child all in one. That's what romantic relationships end up being. You see the bad and good, you accept them when they're at their worst, and you appreciate and express gratitude. You comfort them but you also beat them up when they're wrong. And he's even seen her poop. There's no facade and no games. Joon-Ho just needs to man up and tell Sol he likes her. MORE JOONSOL PLEASE.
