Pinocchio: Episode 13

Yay, Pinocchio delivers a sweet, heartwarming Christmas episode, filled with unexpected cheer and warm fuzzies. It’s such a relief, because I was not looking forward to reprising last week’s cryfest. Thankfully for us, no matter how much Dal-po thinks separating himself from the ones he loves is the best he can do, his family’s got a different idea about where he can take his noble idiocy and shove it.

Note: Please expect a delay for Episode 14’s recap. Happy Christmas, everyone!

EPISODE 13: “The Gift of the Magi”

After splitting up to each investigate their part, the gang reconvenes at the precinct to make sure that witness accounts line up against Mom in her misreported story about the bus driver who committed suicide. Things are looking good for Dal-po, and Beom-jo asks if he isn’t worried about how In-ha will feel; he replies tersely that he isn’t, and Beom-jo is further shocked to learn that they’re broken up.

Everyone comes back except for In-ha, who texts the group to say that the hospital’s death certificate confirms their suspicions, but noticeably avoids answering Dal-po’s call. Dal-po gets a weird feeling about her text, remembering that it’s her only way to ever lie to people, and heads out to look for her.

We see her walk up to the precinct with the hospital report in hand and a worried look on her face. A flashback to her visit to the hospital reveals that she spoke with a doctor, who showed her that the certificate was a forgery. Aw man, I knew this seemed too easy.

Dal-po comes out just seconds before she’s about to rip up the documents, and In-ha instinctively runs away. Naturally he chases her down the street, and eventually discovers that she’s hiccupping. She knows there’s no way around it, so she has to tell him the truth: The bus company president was lying, and Mom was right after all.

He bemoans the fact that it had to be In-ha who found out, and tells her that it’ll be okay as long as she keeps quiet. Oh nooo, Dal-po, that’s not how we do things around here! But he’s so blinded by his anger and his need for revenge that he says he’s still going to take her mother down, for Hyung’s sake.

Even as she’s hiccupping, In-ha agrees to keep her mouth shut if that’s what it takes. He swears he’ll see this through to the end, no matter what. Guuuys, it’s all useless if you sell your souls in the process!

Dal-po is shocked when he comes home that night to find Dad and Grandpa waiting on his front stoop. Awwww. (And yay, is Dal-po raising Hyung’s dog?) Grandpa heads inside and starts checking the apartment to make sure that it’s livable, muttering all the while that he was originally going to cut ties to spite him, but he decided he didn’t want to be rude like someone. Heh.

Dal-po can barely lift his head or look Grandpa in the eye, and can only answer his questions about the heat and the water pressure and his rice supply with tiny little chirps. Meanwhile, Dad gives the landlady an envelope along with his phone number, in case Dal-po ever gets sick. She asks what their relation is, and Dad says, “We’re brothers. He’s my hyung.” Lol, she looks at him like he’s nuts, but he declares it with a smile.

They leave as suddenly as they came, and Dal-po just follows them out like a puppy, trailing after them no matter how much Grandpa tells him not to. Grandpa turns around to declare that he will not be un-adopting him ever: “No matter what anyone says, you are my son for life!” Best family ever. Dad finally gets Dal-po to stop following them with threats of stopping their visits, and he hangs back and watches them go.

Inside, Dal-po finds a gift left behind by Grandpa—money and a scarf, with a note for him to not be stingy with the heat or skip meals. He hugs the scarf and starts to cry, as he thinks back to In-ha’s words that she knows how much he misses Grandpa and cries himself to sleep every night while pretending to be okay.

At work, Dal-po and Yoo-rae hand in what they’ve investigated so far, and Gyo-dong asks one last time if they’re not finding facts to support a predetermined result. It niggles at Dal-po’s conscience, especially when Yoo-rae answers defiantly that they’re not like Song Cha-ok.

They get sent out to catch Mom on her way to work, just like every other news outlet including MSC. Dal-po glances over at In-ha, who hangs back from the crowd of reporters and protesters, all waiting for Mom to show her face. When she arrives, her car gets swarmed, and she decides to step out. Her chauffer warns her not to, but she says if just takes a few hits, she’ll become the victim in no time.

So she steps out of the car prepared to take her public beating for the sake of the cameras, and the bus company president gets in her face to demand that she apologize. The experience of being in that crowd only reminds Dal-po of being swarmed by reporters as a kid, and when the bus company president eggs Mom right in front of him, he can’t contain it any longer and asks if he forged the death certificate.

That confuses everyone, and In-ha looks up in surprise. Dal-po confronts the man about forging the document, and he caves right away, wailing that he was angry about losing his company. The crowd runs after the conman, leaving Mom to ask Dal-po through gritted teeth what he thinks he’s doing. He says he’s doing his job as a reporter, which is what she should have done thirteen years ago.

He asks why no one believes her even when she tells the truth, or why she doesn’t even believe herself. Is she a reporter? He says he’s going to keep asking her that question, and turns to look at In-ha as he adds, “And until I hear the answer, I will not fall apart.” Woot. In-ha smiles proudly. The high road looks nice on you, Dal-po.

Mom keeps her composure and just cleans herself up in the bathroom like nothing happened, though she mutters under her breath at Dal-po’s impudence.

Back at YGN, Yoo-rae is busy telling the others about Dal-po’s big moment today and how impressive he was, sighing that if it weren’t for her oppa, she’d accept his feelings. They’re shocked when Mom announces on the news that night that she’ll be stepping down as anchor, though she plans to be out in the field like she was before.

Dal-po visits Hyung in jail and tells him about it, and Hyung is proud that Dal-po knocked her down a peg and that he didn’t stoop to her level to do it. Dal-po admits that it was because of In-ha, and that instead of thanking her, he got mad and blamed her for getting in the way. Hyung tells him to say it to her directly.

In-ha and Beom-jo watch as workers take down the giant banner of her and Mom on the MSC building, and she says that seeing Dal-po yesterday convinced her that he’d be able to forget her and move on and do everything he wants to do, and says honestly that it makes her happy because she’d felt guilty until now.

Beom-jo asks her to have dinner because it’s his birthday, and later that night while she’s away from the table, Dal-po calls to apologize, and Beom-jo picks up her phone instead. He tells Dal-po where they are and asks if he and In-ha are really over, and says that he has something to say that Dal-po should hear.

He leaves Dal-po on the line so that he can hear their conversation, and when In-ha returns, he finally confesses the truth about the stolen text messages. He says that at first he did it for fun, which turned into curiosity, which turned to longing. It’s what made him search for her in the end.

Beom-jo knows how she feels about Dal-po, and also how much she wants to erase him: “I’ll help you. Let’s date.” Dal-po hears all this and races toward the restaurant, and In-ha stammers in shock at Beom-jo’s confession.

Dal-po arrives outside and spots them, and makes a move to run inside when suddenly, In-ha replies: “Okay, let’s date.” WHAT.

But then she hiccups, and points that out to Beom-jo, proving that it doesn’t work like that for her—she can’t fool herself. Oh phew. She apologizes and starts to get up, but he keeps her from reaching for her phone and declares that they can start there then—he’ll just be so good to her that she’ll feel so bad that she can’t reject him. Uh, you’re not really thinking this is an effective and desirable way to win her heart, are you?

He adds, “I’m different from Dal-po. To me, you’re not someone who holds me back, or has wronged me.” At that, Dal-po hangs up and turns around. Augh.

What sucks most is that he doesn’t get to hear In-ha’s awesome response. She tells Beom-jo that she’s grateful for his thoughtfulness, but she won’t ever feel sorry enough not to reject him (THANK YOU), and asks that they stay friends and coworkers. She grabs the check to pay for dinner and immediately regrets it when she looks at the amount, and is relieved to hear that Beom-jo already paid.

Beom-jo looks out the window and sees Dal-po watching from across the street, and has a moment of second lead weakness as he leads In-ha out to his car with an arm around her, for Dal-po’s benefit.

Dal-po returns to the office feeling extra grumpy and takes it out on the copy machine. Yoo-rae thinks it weird that he’s starting to look sexy in her eyes, and snaps a few photos while he isn’t looking. Ha, once a sasaeng, always a sasaeng?

Mom packs up her desk for now, and when she drops her things on her way out, In-ha uses the chance to palm her old flip-phone while she helps pick up the mess. In-ha asks about Mom’s relationship to Beom-jo’s mother, and curiously, she seems pretty evasive about it.

On her way out, Mom gets a text from her boss saying, “Don’t worry, I don’t abandon people so easily.” Huh, I wonder if Beom-jo’s Mommy is the mysterious boss she answers to?

Yoo-rae asks Dal-po if he has Christmas plans (meaning a date), and he misses her innuendo as he says rookies don’t get Christmas. She flips her hair and says she’ll give him a present that’ll make him happy then, and he totally misses all her flirty glances.

They run into In-ha and Beom-jo outside the precinct, and Beom-jo holds Dal-po back to apologize for using an underhanded move the other night. But he calls Dal-po out on being pathetic for making In-ha feel guilty while not being able to hold on OR let go. Okay, he has a point.

Dal-po says he’s trying to clean up his feelings, and counters for Beom-jo not to use him or that I’m-being-helpful excuse to dress up his own feelings for In-ha. And then out of the blue, a Santa comes running out of the precinct in handcuffs, screaming like a madman.

He’s headed straight for In-ha, and all she can think to try and stop him from getting away is to throw her shoe at him. That just makes the crazy Santa even crazier, and he picks up a giant sign to swing at her.

She braces for impact, when Dal-po comes flying in between them with a kick. He knocks Santa down and guards In-ha while Beom-jo and the cops catch him. For that brief moment, Dal-po can only think of In-ha’s safety, and he holds her face in his hands as he asks if she’s okay.

Beom-jo joins in with worry, and Yoo-rae looks back and forth between the two boys fawning over In-ha, and asks Dal-po if he just didn’t see her because she’s so small. Dal-po just wonders what she’s talking about, and gets distracted by the sight of a young boy crying after Santa.

Chan-soo asks the group if they could just sweep this incident under the rug, but of course they reply in unison that they won’t. So he sits them down to tell them Santa’s story, as long as they agree to leave out the part where he escaped on Chan-soo’s watch.

Santa is a poor single father who was upset about his son being bullied and left out at school for not having some expensive designer backpack, and took up a short-term job working as a mall Santa. While there, he stole said backpack and gave it to his son.

Beom-jo wonders why he’d steal instead of buying it if it’s just a backpack, but Dal-po argues that to some people, “just a backpack” might not be affordable. It turns out to be ridiculously overpriced, and Chan-soo says it’s become a bit of a problem in schools, because kids are being bullied over this backpack… which happens to only be sold at Beomjo Mall. All eyes turn to Beom-jo.

It’s still awkward as the four reporters sit down to eat, and Beom-jo argues that this isn’t a story. But the others think there’s something there, especially in the marketing and jacked-up price set by his family’s mall. Yoo-rae even says that she got a bit of a scary vibe from his mom, and he’s offended that anyone could think badly of his angel of a mother.

But what really upsets him is that In-ha agrees that it’s a story worth reporting to their station, and he storms out in a huff. She chases after him and he knows she’ll call it in to their boss anyway, and says it’s at least another thing she’ll feel sorry for.

Dal-po watches them go with a sigh, and chides himself for not being able to let go. Chan-soo is there berating himself too, for his Santa mishap that might lead to getting reassigned to the countryside. He asks Dal-po to go out for drinks, and Dal-po scowls at the thought of spending Christmas Eve with Chan-soo, but doesn’t really have better plans.

So they drink beer and sigh at all the happy couples around them, and Dal-po wonders what Chan-soo is doing with him when he has a wife at home. Chan-soo points out that if he goes home on Christmas to tell his wife he got demoted, he’ll be a dead man, and Dal-po just makes cute pouty faces at him.

He admits to feeling sorry about everything right now because of Hyung—he’s sorry that he can drink, walk the streets, laugh, or swoon at the sight of someone. As Dal-po gets drunker and drunker and recounts all the things he’s sorry about, he stuffs his pockets full of the free beer snacks sitting on their table.

By the end of the night, Chan-soo is piggybacking Dal-po home, which is a pretty hilarious visual. In his drunken stupor, Dal-po gives Chan-soo the address to Grandpa’s house, and Chan-soo goes through this long introduction to remind Dad and Grandpa of who he is, and ends up collapsing with Dal-po on his back.

Chan-soo tells Dad and Grandpa about all the things Dal-po feels sorry for because of his brother, and Dal-po suddenly wakes up with a big goofy smile. He reaches into his pockets and scoops out the snacks he stowed away—nuts for Grandpa, squid for Dad, and In-ha’s favorite chips.

He empties them into their hands with the cutest little ta-da: “I gotchoo Christmas presents!” I love drunk Dal-po. Chan-soo realizes that’s why he was stuffing his pockets with random snack foods, and Grandpa hugs him close.

Dal-po wakes up in his old bed and sees In-ha in his room, and she tenderly feels his forehead and tells him he’s got a fever. He sees her wearing the dream button that she gave back to him, and realizes this must be a dream.

She tucks him in and gets up to go, but he grabs her arm: “I can’t hold on to right now. But… don’t go to someone else, okay?” She tells him she won’t, and he reaches up to touch her face: “I don’t want to wake up…”

He does eventually wake with a smile on his face, only to be horrified to discover that he’s been snuggling Chan-soo all night. Hee. Dad comes in to tell them he’s made hangover soup and Dal-po fidgets, not knowing what to do.

He ends up sitting down at the table, and Grandpa feels his forehead to make sure that his fever has gone down. Dad tells In-ha to do something about Dal-po’s hair, and the air gets really awkward when she fixes it like she always used to.

So they eat Christmas breakfast together like a family, and as they head out for work, Chan-soo says it’s a relief to see that Grandpa didn’t collapse in shock over Hyung’s case. He gets a call from “Grim Reaper,” and gets on his knees to beg forgiveness from his wife.

In the elevator, Dal-po says he’s sorry, not about the drunken sleepover, but about asking In-ha to cover up the bus driver’s death certificate. He admits he crossed a line, and she says she was initially disappointed, but was impressed by the things he said to Mom.

She says that seeing him do what he wanted without holding back for her sake made her happy, and now she’s comfortable around him. He starts to ask her something, but decides against it.

Yoo-rae has been sitting in the precinct all night with a giant bow on her head, and pouts that Dal-po never showed. When Dal-po and Chan-soo arrive, Santa’s son is there again, and Chan-soo sighs that it’s too bad Beom-jo’s mother is being such a hardass about Santa’s case.

Everyone else is saying that Santa deserves some pity, but Chaebol Mommy insisted on pressing charges. Chan-soo sweetly puts his earmuffs on the boy and tells him to go home.

Gyo-dong tells Dal-po to stick with the story and get useful footage a different way, so he heads to the mall with a camera crew. Beom-jo is waiting outside and asks Dal-po to take it easy and not transfer bad feelings to his mom, but he grows increasingly agitated as he watches Dal-po storm into the luxury bag department and sneak footage, complete with Yoo-rae’s rich high-schooler cosplay to get the salesperson talking.

Beom-jo finally erupts and tells Dal-po to quit it, and they get in each other’s faces, tempers flaring high. Beom-jo says his mother isn’t the kind of ruthless person Dal-po is making her out to be, and Dal-po says it sure looks like that way to him.

In-ha arrives with the MSC crew and she manages to break up the fight, but Dal-po is incensed when she sides with Beom-jo and says it’s too early to jump to any conclusions about his mom.

Meanwhile, Chaebol Mommy receives a text from Song Cha-ok that she’ll be waiting, and it turns out that she’s been the powerful backer all along.

Dal-po walks away feeling like utter crap, and opens up his wallet with a long sigh. Inside is his dream button where he always keeps it, confirming that his dream of In-ha really was nothing but a dream. He takes it out and goes to throw it in the trash, but can’t quite bring himself to do it.

At home, Grandpa notices that Dad’s shirt looks too big for him, and he says it’s Hyungnim’s… and we see that it’s actually missing TWO gold buttons. Eeeee.

Beom-jo thanks In-ha for taking his side, and she tells him not to misunderstand—she isn’t taking his side. And we see that she’s wearing the second gold button around her neck.

 
COMMENTS

It wasn’t a dream! I was waiting for the necklace reveal at the breakfast table because I was hoping it wasn’t a dream, but then I totally fell for the fakeout when he finds the button still sitting in his wallet. But I love the double whammy of cuteness, in finding that even after he’s gone, Dad seeks out Dal-po’s old shirts to wear like a real little brother, and In-ha has stolen a second button to replace the one she gave back.

I’m a little disappointed in Beom-jo going the way of a classic meddlesome second lead, especially after getting a taste of his possible friendship with Dal-po last week. He still isn’t hateful or anything, since he’s coming from a well-intentioned place; it’s just totally misguided. I dislike the emotional blackmail method he thinks he can employ to win In-ha over. I mean, what kind of relationship would you even get if the girl finally felt sorry enough to cave and date you? It’s mostly sad in a pathetic way since it’s not going to work, but I do like that In-ha shoots him down immediately. She’s so refreshingly matter-of-fact about everything, and I love her more with every calm, reasonable thing she says.

It sucks that Dal-po didn’t get to hear her rejecting Beom-jo, but I suppose it’s worthwhile to have him worry a little about losing In-ha to someone else, because Beom-jo was right about him being unable to hold on or let go. This limbo is just him trying to convince himself that he can move on, even though he’s running to In-ha at the first sign of trouble, or the first sign of another man’s interest. And now that we know his dream with In-ha wasn’t a dream after all, at least his unease and jealousy fueled him to show a moment of weakness and ask her not to go to someone else. It’s still not as far as we really want—he’s still stuck not being able to hold on, but at least he asked her not to go?

I’m just glad he took the high road when it came down to revenge vs. integrity, and that it affirmed for In-ha that this is why she loves him. It has the double purpose of lifting her guilt, because she sees that he can still fight without compromising himself for her. I just don’t know that this whole revenge/guilt setup is as dire as they’re playing it, since he’s managing just fine to be a good reporter who seeks the truth over his personal feelings. That’s what I think he’s doing in the latest case, though it’s interesting to put Dal-po on the offensive when he should understand better than anyone what Beom-jo is feeling as he defends his mother blindly. I’m sure they’ll work it out, though I worry more for Beom-jo in this case, because I think his precious angel mommy is perhaps only an angel in front of him. She probably didn’t become a chaebol CEO by being nice, and we also have her mystery connection to In-ha’s mother to figure out.

But in today’s episode, it’s Dad and Grandpa who stole my heart. You just can’t beat the love of a parent who meets rejection and heartache with just more love. I hated that Dal-po left Grandpa behind and made him cry, but man, when Grandpa showed up at his door and said he won’t let Dal-po stop being his son, the heartache was worth it for that. And coming home for Christmas drunk off his rocker with pockets full of Family’s favorite snacks? So. Great. I’m just relieved that we got a holiday episode of sweet family reunions to break up the sadness parade from last week, which was touching in its own way, but hard on the tear ducts. And it’s mostly thanks to beer, which cracked me up—apparently all I need for Christmas is drunk Dal-po and his finger-guns.

Thanks for the recap girlfriday! I admit I did not see that coming. I thought we would get a nice chaebol mother for once! I worry for Ha Myung's safety. Hopefully the drama will end with a bang, and of course, a peaceful resolution with the main couple back together.

Merry Christmas GF and thank you for working your buns off to bring us our own wonderful Christmas recap present.

The part that got me was when Ha Myeong's older bro tapped the glass.

So poignant between the brothers, so indicative of the infinite barrier between them, and so clear that the difference between being a murderer and a not-murderer is a few moments of peace, and/or luck.

If I can get me some Cha 변 for Christmas now, Kdrama Santa, I won't ask for ANYthing else this year, promise.

Something else that remained in my heart from this episode.

How ADORABLE was DP when he turned to look at Grandpa and called out 'Aboji' in that endearingly-sweet and loving voice? Then laughing so FREELY, more freely than he has laughed in a long long long while.

Then after giving out the free snacks to each family member, he FREELY grabbed Grandpa in such a warm, loving and to-die-for hug, something he must have been yearning for, for such a long time since he moved out - a yearning for the warmth of a loved one!!

Waaaaahhhh *tears flowing*

I wish to correct myself.

Dal Po reached out to NESTLE DEEPLY in Grandpa's warm, loving arms like a long-lost child who desperately missed his father, which is exactly who Dal Po is and what he is feeling.

How can we not LOVE this family dynamic?

HEARTBREAKINGLY AWESOME!!

Dal Po continues to wander around in a state of constant confusion. Plus he’s now worried that In Ha may actually choose Bum Jo. See how breaking up only caused more problems? Plus no more bromance. I loved how he stopped at the revolving door though. It sure brought back IHYV feels! There’s honestly nothing, preventing him from going to In Ha. Poor hyung’s in jail, and Cha Ok’s resigned (though something nefarious is brewing there). And SBJ has no right to use DP to convince IH to date him. Why do they underestimate In Ha so much? Bum Joo actually seems to believe that his method will work, which just underestimates IH’s intelligence, and DP believes that he has no right to her, which just underestimates her love for her.
Thankfully for Grandpa and Dad, there’s nothing like the spirit of Christmas (and copious amount of alcohol) to get the truth following from out reticent hero’s tongue. I cheered when the Dal Po of old resurfaced happily presented the snacks to Granda and Dad with the world’s most adorable smile on his face. I think it’s safe to say that they’re definitely aware of this whole martyr thing he’s trying to do now. Thanks Ahn Chan Soo, hope your wife doesn’t kill you.
But the Santa conflict honestly goes on my list of lamest Christmas conflicts ever. What was that unbelievably stupid scene outside the mall? In Ha, did you seriously just throw a shoe at him? And stand still while he ran at you? What show am I watching anymore? It certainly can’t be Pinocchio. I don’t think you can blame anything on the bags. What’s an inanimate object to do about the whole thing? It’s not like they asked to be priced ridiculously high or for people to value them far more than their honor and dignity. The problem lies with Bum Joo, who still hasn’t properly recovered from the rejection and is even more furious that DP is pointing out flaws in his precious mother. Just like DP, he’s having serious issues with remaining objective about the fact that his mother’s probably even worse than Cha Ok in reality. But DP’s just as bad here, seeing that he’s taking out his frustration with not being able to pursue in Ha (again what’s stopping you?) and using the case to do that. In Ha’s the only one with a brain (as usual) in telling them what they need to see both sides of the matter, but what does DP do but take that as a sign that she no longer loves him (what?) and goes off to mope. Great.
What on earth is with all these characters? I might agree with how realistic their response to the situation is, yet it drives me nuts to see them play it out on screen, especially when there’s no real conflict keeping them apart anymore. Can’t DP and IH just stand together, now that a new danger may be headed their way?

@Shalini

Thank you for your super-insightful and engrossing thoughts and comments on the episode!! I had a blast reading this and all your other extended thoughts!! ;)

You are so right about everything!! How frustrating the needless conflicts being thrown left and right can be!! But then I guess that is why it is called a DRAMA! ;)

What is a drama without the requisite feeling of wanting to tear one's hair out over the exasperating stuff coming from what the drama writers and PDs warped minds?

Maybe there is an exasperation-quota and quota-on-how-many-insane-stuff-they-can-come-up-with that they have to meet for every drama they generate in order to drive up ratings? It's anybody's guess. ;)

Anyhow, thanks so much for your kind effort and time in sharing your wonderful and spot-on thoughts that I am sure must be on so many of the other viewers' minds such as myself as well. ;)

What I love about this writer is that she always inserts the "right" amount of frustration. Every time I'm about to facepalm, she makes sure that the problem is partially resolved. I was so frustrated when Beom Jo had Hamyung/Dalpo listening in on his sad little confession and it was refreshing that 1.) HM/DP didn't hang up right away; 2.) didn't just lull around and just give in until way into the conversation and most importantly 3.) that the female lead didn't just sulk and give in as usual. She's followed her pattern from I Can Hear Your Voice and she's clearly making a statement that female leads actually CAN have personality and sass (thank the lawd). I can't wait to see tomorrow' episode.

And um, I'm really sad that Beom Jo is going to find out his mom is not as nice as she appears...sigh.

Grandpa turns around to declare that he will not be un-adopting him ever: “No matter what anyone says, you are my son for life!” Best family ever.

That's nice and all but doesn't grandpa have to un-adopt him at some point so Dal-po and In-ha can get married? I'm sure it's the same in Korea as in the US whatever is on paper is what the government recognizes so even if they know they're not related the government doesn't. Or can you marry your uncle in Korea?

I think he will un-adopt him but he will be happy then because he will still have in the family. So, it will be a very happy un-adoption! :-D

Also how about some love for Chan-soo. The cop friend, I think that's his name. Surprisingly a good character haha. Very nice episode.

I totes got all teary when I saw Dad and Grandpa waiting outside Dal Po's door. They've become one of my favorite families in Kdramaland. And damn, I totally loved that death certificate thing. I can feel the tension so much that I was screaming at my screen for Dal Po to say the truth out loud.

I was kinda surprised with Beom Jo's mom tho. It's quite fascinating how that cellphone--which seemed like a mere happenstance for Beom Jo and In Ha to have a connection--has a deeper purpose than it seemed at first.

Show, please continue to be consistent, okay? Best Christmas gift yay!

My favourite family moment was dad telling the landlady to call him if Dal Po was sick and expressly telling her that Dal Po is his hyung. Can't wipe the smile off my face!!

What a wonderful relationship where once he was ashamed to have a young older brother, he is totally embracing it now. Just love the Chois and their interactions.

I actually am glad to see Beom jo using the methods he did to try and get In ha.
It's like- he is all grown up, and could think for himself, and stand his ground and what not. That's a progress from being the spoiled and immature boy who can't let go of mommy's hand. Seriously, I think he is getting better!

A confession- whenever I think of this show, I keep thinking: "Hyuuuuuuuuuuung!!!"
And we didn't get to see him much in this episode.
There should be a hyung spin off!!!

Not that I understand why school kids need a brand backpack, even when they can't really afford it, but I still think they were too harsh on Beom jo's mother.
But before I feel too sorry for her- it seems like her story is much bigger than this.

i guess they will not cast Kim Hae-Sook for nothing. She's a great actress and definitely the staff will not settle for the goody-goody-chaebol-mommy of the second lead role for her. THERE ARE MUCH MORE EXPLOSIVES in STORE. just like how she might be behind all Ha Myung's sufferings (for super unknown reasons though)

LOOKING FORWARD.
I love the camaraderie among the cast (been following all of them in instagram). I can even feel it ON CAM :) Such a great team.

Yes! I get confused often, and have to remind myself that those are 2 pairs of reporters, from competing companies, and not 4 friends who happen to be co-workers ^_^

Maybe 13 years ago, there was a story that was going to explode about the mall, and his mother asked to divert the attention of the people/media to something else?!?!

So true about the Four Musketeers (ok it's 2+2 and not 3+1). I love that they're buddies even when they're rivals - and the cast genuinely seem to like each other a lot, they look pretty happy and comfortable around each other, on set.

I did like getting to see Beom-jo get more to do this ep, and even Yoo-rae steps up to the plate and does well (love that she is genuinely chummy with In-ha, and does not have classic second female lead reaction to finding out she isn't the real object of Dal-po's affections. But I still wish Lee Yubi had more to do, because she is capable of so much more)

Hehe... I wasn't sure at first it was Lee Yubi. I realised later that I was somewhat surprised because subconsciously I wasn't expecting her to be in a not-first-lead role!
I think she could easily become first lead. She has a very strong presence, doesn't she? That's probably why she doesn't seem like a second lead, even though her role is not super important.

yeah, Lee Yubi is leading lady material all right - strong screen presence and a distinctive beauty. She's really talented, too - a true actress.

I really hope networks and movie makers get their heads on straight and start offering her lead roles soon. She deserves that big break!

After last week's eps, I was really hoping not for a repeat. Thank goodness to good ol' liquor because drunk Dal-po was the best! :)

After breaking Grandpa's heart, I was really hoping there would be some instance where both Grandpa and In-ha's dad could see that Dal-po didn't mean the words he said, and that he was doing all that because of feeling guilty towards Hyung for having a loving family and growing up loved. So to have his real heart come through, with what he said to Chan-soo while getting drunk (which he relayed to Grandpa and In-ha's dad)...was a relief. I lost it when Dal-po came to from his drunken stupor and pulled out all the bar snacks stashed in his pockets - the 3 snacks his family loved, and the "pyong pyong!!" finger gun aegyo! That in itself made the heartbreak worth it...and how sweet that he ended up spending Christmas morning with the family.

I expected Beom-jo to turn into the typical assy second lead who has no shot in hell to even get the girl's heart...but how fitting that now there's implications that good sweet Mommy is potentially rich and corrupt? (Not really a shocker to me though.) It was weird that In-ha's mom left her cellphone at his family's home in the first place...I'm thinking that being majority shareholder of MSC means she had some role with In-ha's mom in the journalism world or potentially something even bigger -- if those texts have any inklings towards what their partnership is. I expect In-ha's mom to continue being an unrepentant bitchy villain, and having Beom-jo's mom backing her being the story that'll unfold later.

Thank you for the recap, GF! Merry Christmas, yall! :)

Thanks for the recap, GF! Such a sweet ep today! Merry Christmas & happy holidays to everyone here!

I knew it wasn't gonna be that easy to take down Mom, so I wasn't surprised that her report was actually accurate. The exchange between DP & IH to cover up the death certificate forgery made me wince cuz that's just not the way to go & IH actually went along... But I'm glad that DP ultimately held onto integrity & reported the facts. Thought it'd take him longer to make this choice, so props to DP. Also, Mom stepping down was expected as I was hoping she will start over again & be a real reporter this time. But looks like there's more than meets the eye now with this decision what with BJ's mom being not so angelic & CO still wanting to turn every situation (stepping out of the car to get hit & be the victim) to her advantage. She still has much to learn & I hope DP will keep challenging her.

Grandpa & Dad visiting DP was the sweetest ever! That whole scene moved me & I'm glad these two have taken the initiative to show what family is all about.

Yay that we still get glimpses of Hyung. And DP needs that brotherly advice, i.e., apologizing to IH & thanking her.

The restaurant scene... Finally BJ is stepping up to the plate to make a move, but the whole way of going about it is so wrong. I totally agree that making a girl feel sorry for you to be with you is a no-no. IH is so awesome to set him straight right away. Too bad DP didn't hear it. Wish he has more faith & confidence in IH & himself!

The Santa case... The shoe projectile made me LOL. IH can throw! But at least we get to see DP being instinctively protective of IH. He should know by now that cleaning up his feelings is a futile effort. YR, please pick up on the signs already that DP doesn't like you.

CS & DP drinking! Hahaha! LJS's pouty face is sooo cute! And all those snacks! Was wondering why, which makes it all the more heartwarming to know they were all his family's fave snacks! Drunk DP is totally awesome!! The finger guns, goofy grins & hugs! Love love love! *laughs & swoons*

Knew it wasn't a dream with IH & glad it was confirmed with Dad wearing DP's shirt (keke) & IH at the end in the mall scene. Hope DP finds out soon! I knew he wouldn't be able to throw that button away. Glad he got to at least say to IH not to go to someone else. She wouldn't anyway, but it's good he's telling her even though he didn't know it wasn't a dream.

Poor BJ who's so stuck on his mom being a saint. Finding out her true nature is gonna be painful. Both BJ & DP need to chill for this case since they're acting emotionally and irrationally. Trust IH to say it like it is to them both. Let's see some growth as reporters for these rookies instead of unlearning lessons they already learned. Now, I'm curious what this plot is that BJ's mom & CO are cooking up. It's suspicious that CO...

It's suspicious that CO is purposely vague when answering IH's questions about BJ's mom. They definitely have some personal ties & looks like BJ's mom is the one backing Mom all these years... Curious how the Santa case will be resolved. Poor kid whose dad wanted him to not be bullied... I'm actually glad they are exploring this bullying issue, which is quite prevalent in a school setting. CS is so sweet giving his earmuffs to the kid.

Can't wait for next ep.

Thanks girlfriday! I hope you managed to have some Christmas holiday while continuing with your recapping. Don't know how you manage it!

Phew! the danger that Ha Myung would resort to Cha Ok's nefarious methods to bring her down has passed (for now). If he had given in to revenge, what he would have become was far worse than what Cha Ok is and worse than what she did to his family. She did not deliberately lie to discredit his father, but in order for Ha Myung to discredit her over the bus worker's suicide, he would have had to resort to slander... that would have been on a different level from not verifying the truth/irresponsible reporting.

It's true that Cha Ok has deliberately lied before, but we have no proof that she did that with full knowledge that it would destroy someone.

So I'm relieved that his better side won out and hope that he'll be able to avoid the manipulation of truth and hypocrisy in his quest for revenge.

A quest that's feeling kind of old by now actually.... there's nothing to gain and more to lose... even Hyung is not badgering him for more revenge action... can't we just get over it and move on already???

I feel sorry for Beom Jo. He's in love with her and just wants a chance. He knows she still loves Dal Po, but at the same time he knows she wants to get over him. Confessing then getting rejected is always better than hiding your feelings in a lifetime crush in my book. I really like how he didn't lie to Dal Po about where they were by telling him the name of the cafe and confirming its location, and I don't think he was being malicious in letting Dal Po hear how In Ha felt. I can see why all these guys are in love with her. She was awesome when she accepted his proposal just to prove a point, since she knew her hiccups would be the only way to make him understand a relationship between them was impossible.

Thank you for being the Dal Po I know and love. If he had lied, he would have been just as bad as Mom. As much as he wants to take her down, he would have never been able to live with himself on top of not being able to live with himself already when he reluctantly broke Haraboji's heart. Dad hit me the hardest when he offered to be Dal Po's emergency contact. His Christmas presents for the family shows how much he subconsciously thinks about them. Dal Po makes the cutest drunk. It hurts to see him so lonely and forcing himself to be unhappy because he feels guilty every time he is happy. Hyung doesn't want that kind of life for his little brother. Hyung accepts his future sister-in-law, yay! We owe our couple's reunion to Chan Soo today. He was so sweet to give his earmuffs to the little boy. All in all, a feel-good Christmas episode.

Merry Christmas to girlfriday and everyone!

"I really like how he didn’t lie to Dal Po about where they were by telling him the name of the cafe and confirming its location, and I don’t think he was being malicious in letting Dal Po hear how In Ha felt."

I personally think Bumjo was an asshole for that phonecall because Inha had no idea her conversation was being listened to, that is not cool. And the way Bumjo thinks he can eventually guilt Inha into dating him is a red flag. Dalpo should have hung up right away, he was wrong too.

I know! But I hope they get a face-to-face meeting once he's out of jail (he will be....right?) and not, you know, throwing her against walls. I think they'd like each other.

Yoon Kyun-sang is so intense mostly, that when he isn't, I feel like something's missing. But I like mellower hyung too.

I admit that Lee Jong Seok has a way for inducing a lot of empathy for the character. he gives you this teary look and you feel like you´d jump into fire to protect the character from harm. he is as close as anyone gets to forget the character isn´t actually real.
the thing with doing a reporters job and channeling your revenge into doing the right thing unlike your target, is pretty much the same that happened in I Hear Your Voice with Su Ha not killing Min Min Joon Gook.

I think Bum Jo's mom will be the real villain and In Ha's mom is her sidekick. May she orchestrated the fire 13 years ago and IH's Mom helped her by distracting the public from the real cause of the fire.

I think the next episode will be BJ's chance to shine. I do believe his mom is a good person and just maybe work has created this duality in her. If anything he'll understand her better. Maybe this will be his opportunity to grow and become a reporter for real and not just as something to do or to be close to In Ha. I wonder what the connection is with In Ha's mom. I don't understand this whole baker situation. I guess I missed something in the recaps.

Well thanks for the recap! Happy Holidays!

I actually think Dal Po though his hyung (IH dad) was In Ha. Since he was wearing the shirt with one bottom and drunk Dal Po could be hallucinating which would explain hyung telling In Ha to fix his hair.

Not really. The shirt Dad wore originally had three buttons, you can see from the holes. One was taken off the top to make the dream button that Dal-po took back, the second In-ha removed and is now wearing around her own neck (visible even in the end scene where she is with Beom-jo) and the third is still on the shirt.

I'm so glad this episode was semi centered around Christmas and Grandpa and Father came to visit Dal Po to show him that just because he choose to leave them, that they won't leave him.

And Dal Po and In Ha are still so amazing♥
I was a bit worried because of last episode, but now I'm on the same boat as In Ha. Dal Po will come back to her no matter what, he and she both know that. His "dream" of In Ha proves it and when he confessed shows that.

THANKS for recapping and MERRY CHRISTMAS!♥

Merry Christmas, all!

Such a heartwarming episode, with the equal doses of adorable family (awwwww of course grandpa and dad won't leave Dal-po alone just because he's decided to side with hyung! And drunk Dal-po cuddling up to his dad is the cutest thing EVER. Like a big puppy bringing home things and leaving them in front of you as presents.) And yay to Dal-po also learning to be better than SCO by....being a better person than her.

And EEEEEEE the dream button was real! Such a tender scene. He may deny it because unlike In-ha, he can, but Dal-po's real feelings for her will always show through. Like the drunk dream button scene and the one in which he got all face-holding with In-ha when he was worried about her after Santa (I do like that Yoo-rae's delusions about Dal-po having feelings for her were ruined by firsthand evidence, haha. Even though Beom-jo is to blame for them in the first place).

I'm also intrigued by the possibility of Beom-jo's mother having a connection to the fire of 13 years ago. It's a real possibility that no chaebol can exist in a story without using their money for evil in some way...

(and hardly any hyung this episode! Chan-soo snuggling was adorable but I miss hyung!)

Now it's only Christmas Eve? Really? Woah, so much happening in less than a week.

Dec 18
Rep's Song's lecture; the fateful encounter; In Ha got drunk;

Dec 19
Ha Myung begged Jae Myung not to do the interview with MSC; the (?dead-fish?) break-up kiss (I think it's sweet&heart-breaking, tho); Ha Myung gave in the evidence he'd got to Cap; handed it over to police afterwards and recorded his brother's case report;

Dec 20
Jae Myung's interview with MSC, the hug (ooh, can't they spent more time together? It's only been 2days, for heaven's sake!);

Dec 21
Don't you break Grandpa's heart that way; Ha Myung moved to Jae Myung's apartment then visited Jae Myung;

Dec 22
Crime scene reenactment; bus driver story which then Ha Myung shared about with Hyung when he visited him back behind the glass; HM-BJ possible bromance?; Woah, didn't know Rep.Song could erupt like that; death cert. found to be forged; Grandpa&dongsaeng-nim's visit (so much cuteness!)

Dec 23
As GF said, Ha Myung chose the high road which suited him perfectly; Rep.Song stepped down; In Ha's dinner Beom Jo's confession Ha Myung's (unnecessary) heartbreak;

Dec 24
Backpack-Thief Santa case; Adorb highschool friends drunk-bickering; Double adorb Dal po's Christmas gifts&Grandpa's tight hug; Triple Adorb "Dont go to someone else" leaving adorkb Ribboned Yoo-rae all alone.

Back in Ep1. I admit I thought the drama's time frame was a little off. Ha Myung's family had just moved in, they went taking rice cakes to all their new neighbors on Oct 7, 2000. The next day (at the earliest?), his father was back on duty and the accident occurred. A few days later (the sub says so), Ha Myung-Jae Myung v. Reporters confrontation. News on his father continued, his mother was rejected to grocery shopping. Then, Jae Myung left home, waiting outside MSC for days demanding to see Rep.Song. In Ep14 Ha Myung'd say his mother passed away on Oct 22, 2000. That's 14days for Mom to be driven to suicide. Now that I understand the show's pace, I see it's not that its time frame is messed up, it's just that so much happening so fast in Pinocchio world.

I just watched episode 14. I am really impressed with the writer, how she links everything together. I would have never guessed the many plot twists, but unlike other dramas with poor writing, they don't come out of the blue, instead they seem to be related from the very first episode. Very brilliant -- I love how much enjoyment I'm getting out of this show!
