Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 12

The dust settles a bit, though while many are finally getting their heads on a little straighter, some continue to willfully dive down the delusional rabbit hole. A shift of focus will mean that it’s time for at least one person to face the truth of their past – is it okay to continue to coast on a lie, or is it time to face the truth and accept the consequences?

EPISODE 12 RECAP

From outside the restaurant, Joon-young watches Ajusshi and his mother singing and chair-dancing to an old song (“With You”) about building a house out in the country and living for one hundred years with the one you love. He joins them, and they dance happily together.

He narrates that his mother used to sing that song when she was happy, and that he grew up dreaming of living out his life in that house with the one he loves. Even when he found out his time was short, he didn’t give up on that dream. The time just shortened from one hundred years, to three months.

Now he sees that Eul is sending him a series of texts that echo her wish when in jail for him to come to her… “Now there’s five meters left. Now there’s four meters left…” and so on. Joon-young thinks that he may not have a hundred years, but he wants to spend his remaining time loving the person he loves. “So let’s not be sad or upset.”

He watches Eul count down to zero, than decide to give up, because he’s not coming. That’s when she’d finally decided to leave Korea, but Joon-young had made a decision too… that he’s not going to give up on his last dream. Maybe he can’t spend the last months of his live living with Eul in a little country house, but he can return the justice that he took from her.

He approaches Lawyer Cha, the prosecutor in charge of Eul’s father’s case, determined to find the person who really killed him. Lawyer Cha wants nothing to do with him, but Joon-young just follows him, determined to end the long winter that Eul has been living and give her a happy and free life when he’s gone.

Eul had decided to leave the country, but she doesn’t get further than a few feet before Ji-tae opens her taxi door and demands she get out. He yanks her out and sends Jik upstairs with their things, though Jik makes it clear that he wants an explanation on why Ji-tae disappeared on them.

He tells Eul that she doesn’t have to leave — he heard about Assemblyman Choi’s wife threatening her, but he remains cagey about how he knows. Eul yells that these people are scarier than he can imagine, and finally Ji-tae blurts out the truth: “They’re my parents!” Eul laughs, thinking that he’s joking.

People are growing curious as to why Ji-tae isn’t showing up for his engagement ceremony, but he’s far more concerned with explaining himself to Eul. It starts to sink in that he’s telling the truth and Eul walks away, realizing that she doesn’t know this man at all.

We flash back to Joon-young punching Ji-tae, and we see that Joon-young had admitted that he took Eul’s USB and nearly got her killed. But he wants to know what Ji-tae did that was so terrible. “What did you do when your parents threatened her, and tried to send her abroad?” Ji-tae did nothing, and that’s his shame.

Ji-tae’s parents try to call him, but he refuses to answer, and Jung-eun sits with her expression growing more and more uncertain. She tries to smile at Ji-tae’s mother, but the corners of her lips wobble, and she barely avoids bursting into tears.

Joon-young is doing his “charming but stubborn” thing to Lawyer Cha, and he even shows up with a gift for his daughter’s birthday. Lawyer Cha insists that the real killer turned himself in, sticking with the story, but Joon-young just blithely ignores him.

Things are not so great for Lawyer Cha — his daughter is in the hospital, and he’s estranged from his wife. She tells him he’s no father and to go away, but a flurry of excitement that Joon-young is in the hospital gets Cha’s attention. He’s holding court in Cha’s daughter’s room, though Cha’s little daughter Bo-ram just looks at him like he’s a crazy person while he recites his most famous drama lines for her, hee.

Lawyer Cha watches while Joon-young explains that he knows Bo-ram because he’s a big fan of her father’s, and that finally entices the adorable little girl to talk to him. He tells her that her father is brave, and just, and a great man, and that he envies her for having such a good daddy.

Later he finds Lawyer Cha in the stairwell, and Cha asks why he lied to Bo-ram. Joon-young says that he didn’t lie, and he does respect Cha. He sits (and digs into the cake that Cha dropped on the floor with his bare hands, ick) and guesses that Lawyer Cha traded his integrity in Eul’s case for his daughter’s chance to go to the best hospital in the country. By Cha’s guilty face, it looks like Joon-young nailed it on the head.

But that case got Cha demoted and he couldn’t stand the shame, so he quit his job, and lost his wife and daughter. Lawyer Cha tells him to take his drama back to the set and stands to leave, but Joon-young stops him, and says that he doesn’t have much longer to live. The truth will die with him, so he just wants to know what really happened.

Lawyer Cha grows angry and calls that a stupid drama plot, but Joon-young has one more secret to share: “Assemblyman Choi Hyun-joon is my father.” He says that Assemblyman Choi doesn’t know about it though, and not only that, but the victim of the hit and run was the father of the woman he loves. Joon-young jokes that he’s known for holding grudges, so he threatens to haunt Lawyer Cha forever if he doesn’t help him.

Eul decides to visit the Choi home, politely insisting on being let in even when the housekeeper says that nobody is home. She gets more demanding, thinking they’re there and refusing to see her, and Ji-tae finds her outside bellowing into the intercom.

She yells that she was going to get lost like they wanted, but she accuses them of sending their son to spy on her. Ji-tae is horrified that she thinks that’s why he befriended her, but when Eul collapses, he runs to her.

Haru and Ji-tae’s mom are on their way home from the engagement ceremony, and his mother asks her assistant to check if Ji-tae possibly got into an accident. Meanwhile Assemblyman Choi and Jung-eun’s father, Assemblyman Yoon, go to dinner to discuss matters.

Assemblyman Yoon gets right to the point — is Ji-tae seeing someone else? Assemblyman Choi defends that he would never do something like that, but Yoon doesn’t want to hear any excuses. He orders Ji-tae to come see Jung-eun before the end of the day… only if he does that can they still get engaged.

Jung-eun has gone from sad to angry, and she takes out her frustrations on her dressmaker, as if it’s the dress’s fault that Ji-tae didn’t show today.

Eul wakes in Ji-tae’s car, where he’s taken them to the Han River. She gets right to the point: If she were to date him, would his parents mind? At least he’s honest that it would, and Eul quietly figures that it would be the best way she could get back at them. “Then let’s date, Ajusshi.”

Jung-eun mindlessly drinks shot after shot, but no matter how hard she tries, she can’t get drunk enough. She staggers outside of the hotel bar to the pool area, still drinking, and she finally collapses and falls into the chilly water. Someone dives in to pull her to the surface — is that Joon-young?

He lightly slaps Jung-eun awake, and tells her that she can’t die yet, because she has a lot still to do for him. She blinks up at him, but when people finally arrive to help her, Joon-young leaves again.

As he goes, he thinks about what lawyer Cha told him, that it’s too late and there’s nothing he can do about Eul’s case. Joon-young had asked for just a name, the true killer’s name, before it’s too late. Lawyer Cha had told him the truth: It was Assemblyman Yoon’s daughter, Jung-eun.

Joon-young continues filming his documentary with a new PD, and he says with a smile that he has a bucket list now. Joon-young invites the new PD to eat with him and his team (why he hasn’t fired them and pressed charges, I’ll never understand), and his new, affable attitude surprises everyone.

President Namgoong is overly solicitous, feeling guilty about replacing Eul, but Joon-young seems pretty fine with it actually.

Eul’s former boss visits her at home, where she’s pretty much living in unemployed squalor. Her boss says that his boss, Director Choi sent him to offer her a job reporting on a top star’s movie, but he just can’t do it, and begs her to say that he offered it to her and she turned it down.

But the actor is notoriously meticulous, and even demands that all women around him look like models… so Eul, who is currently wearing noodles on her shirt and sauce all over her face, just wouldn’t do. Her old boss says he’ll find another job more suited to her.

So Eul calls his boss, but instead of turning the job down, she accepts it.

Assemblyman Choi arrives at work to find himself picketed, with a mob of angry people demanding that he resign. Their stores have been closed because of policies he instated, but instead of cowering, he approaches them and asks if those stores had the proper governmental licensing. They admit that they didn’t, and Choi tells them they were lucky to simply lose their street stalls, and that they weren’t fined or sent to jail.

But a strong voice speaks up behind him, asking if he’s certain he did his best to give them time to obtain the proper licenses. Choi recognizes the voice, and in shock, he turns to find Ji-tae standing there.

Ji-tae suggests that instead, Assemblyman Choi hired thugs to chase those people out of their stalls so that the government wouldn’t be burdened by helping them. Choi feebly counters that it was all perfectly legal, but Ji-tae argues back that whether or not is was legal, was it truly justice?

Choi asks brings up the taxes that went unpaid for years, and how it’s not fair to the shop owners who do everything by the book. Ji-tae says that if these men could have followed the law, they would have, rather than endure insults and possible loss of their livelihood.

Assemblyman Choi tells Ji-tae to stop pretending he cares, but again Ji-tae has a smart comeback, that Choi himself was once like them but now pretends he never was. His own parents even owned a street stall.

Ji-tae is yanked into his father’s office, but Assemblyman Choi only asks if he worked things out with Jung-eun and her father. He says that an upcoming life-changing event can cause a man to get distracted, as once happened with him.

Ji-tae just states that he won’t marry Jung-eun, and his father asks if this is about Noh Eul. Ji-tae says he won’t live his life for his parents, that he won’t do anything that benefits them, or would make them happy. If his father wants him out of the company or the house, he’ll go.

Ji-tae’s mother visits Jung-eun, and gives her, of all things, a movie script. She says that she was going to give it to Ji-tae to invest in, but she wants Jung-eun to have it “since we’re family now.” Jung-eun points out that Ji-tae dumped her, but his mother says with doe-eyed innocence that nothing was ever called off.

The engagement went exactly as planned, she says, seeming to really believe it. What in the what now? She pets Jung-eun’s hand and says that she’s her daughter-in-law from now on, and she will share her company’s workload and her family’s secrets with her.

The top star that Eul will be trailing, SEO YOON-HOO (Yoon Park), is predictably behaving like a spoiled baby. He’s angry that he got stuck with the PD who left Joon-young’s documentary, but her old boss promises him that she’s the best and that she only left the project because Joon-young kept hitting on her.

Knowing Joon-young’s high standards, Yoon-hoo finds that mighty interesting, and suddenly he’s eager to meet her. HAHA, Eul’s old boss tells him that she’s good at her job, but actually Joon-young just has weird taste and she mostly looks like a homeless person.

And then Eul walks in, looking like a million freaking bucks. She’s wearing a lacy dress, her hair and makeup just so, and even heels. She’s laying it on pretty thick, but the men lap it up like cream.

Ajusshi visits Joon-young’s mom’s restaurant and finds her doing something sneaky, directing her employee to warn her when Ajusshi arrives. He finds her packing a mountain of food and asks if it’s for Joon-young, and when she stammers and gives herself away, he tells her not to do it or Joon-young will just yell at her.

Mom actually defends Joon-young, and barks that she’ll take him food if she wants to take him food. Ajusshi just smiles and says that he’ll start the car. Awww, he’s so cute.

He drives Mom to Joon-young’s house and tells her she should at least stay to see her son eat something. They argue a bit, neither noticing Assemblyman Choi’s car pulling up to the driveway. Choi can only see Mom’s back and doesn’t recognize her… until Ajusshi spins her around, and Choi’s mouth literally drops open.

Shaking, he steps out of his car and calls her name. She turns to see him, and they both stand stunned.

Jik finds Na-ri waiting for him after school, ready to walk him home in case someone else decides to hit him with a car. Haru sees them arm-in-arm and approaches, annoyed, to tell Jik that she came because he’s been ignoring her texts.

With a smile for Na-ri’s benefit, Haru says says that she thought they were getting close, and HAHA, Jik is all… Nope. Na-ri throws her arm around Jik and even pats his butt, and hee, Jik looks thrilled to have two women fighting over him. Na-ri asks why Haru cares anyway, and she blurts out, “Because I like him, why??”

Eul isn’t quite as together as she’s pretending to be, and her heels give her blisters while she’s filming Yoon-hoo. She can barely walk by the end of the day, and when she trips over a heel, Ji-tae is somehow there to catch her. He doctors her blister, reminding her that he can do this because they’re dating now, not that it seems to make him very happy.

Apparently Seo Yoon-hoo has agreed to be in the movie Jung-eun is investing in, though they seem to know each other already, and the two have dinner together. They discuss his costar, and Joon-young’s name comes up, and Joon-young just happens to be there to overhear Yoon-hoo calling him a jerk.

Joon-young smirks that he’s changed his mind about the part in the movie he originally turned down, to Yoon-hoo’s dismay. Yoon-hoo gets a call from what sounds like a girl, and Joon-young teases him to watch out — there are reporters everywhere. Yoon-hoo shoots him a less-than-friendly gesture over his shoulder as he goes, ha.

Jung-eun remembers Joon-young, and introduces herself formally. As they’re shaking hands, Ji-tae enters the hotel lobby, carrying Eul on his back. All four stop and stare at each other, a million questions in their eyes.

COMMENTS

I have to give an admiring nod to the absolutely beautiful cinematography and soundtrack, because really, it’s a large part of what makes this drama so melancholy and lovely. The washed-out color tones give things a bleak, wintry feel, adding to the chilly emotions that all the characters are displaying. And the music is some of the best I’ve heard, echoing perfectly the mood of each scene. I especially loved the song that played during Jung-eun’s drunk scene, it felt as though the singer was crying for the character and really made me feel her loss and rejection. And of course the unofficial emotional theme of the show, “A Little Braver” by New Empire, always seems to evoke a heart-twisting wistful longing whenever it’s played.

I’m not sure I care for Eul’s plan to date Ji-tae just to get back at his family. It wasn’t long ago that she wanted to date him for real, and was heartbroken at his rejection. But at least you can’t say that she’s using him, because she told him straight out that it would be for revenge. But I do like Ji-tae’s newfound spine, and seeing him stand up to his father made me want to cheer. He’s finally putting his money where his mouth is and seeing his parents for who they truly are, and he can no longer pretend they’re just a normal family who happen to have money and power. It’s time to admit that the money and power have corrupted them, and I’m glad to see him willing to give up that money and power for his own sense of what’s right.

Strangely, and I know I’m in the minority here (and it probably wont’ last as we move forward), but I can’t bring myself to feel anything but an odd sort of compassion for Jung-eun. As I said before, she’s been raised that the pinnacle of her dreams and hopes for her life should be to become a trophy wife. She’s rich and beautiful and nobody has ever held her accountable for anything, not even manslaughter, so I see her more as a victim than as a villain. Of course, a person with stronger character would know instinctively that covering up your responsibility for an accident where someone died is wrong, and that there’s more to life than getting a rich, handsome man, but she’s obviously not possessed of a strong character. So I just see her as a pathetic product of her upbringing.

So to see Jung-eun devastated was, for me, difficult to watch. No, of course she doesn’t deserve Ji-tae and he doesn’t love her anyway, but he did agree to marry her and he went back on his promise in a very public, very humiliating way. There may be people in the world who have it much harder, but in Jung-eun’s mind, she was about to realize her entire life’s dream. Her devastation may be shallow in most people’s eyes, but to Jung-eun, it’s the worst thing she’s ever experienced. So until now I mostly just feel pity for her, but she’s about to have a huge decision to make… whether to come clean and be a better person, or to continue to hide what she did. It’s what she chooses going forward that will determine, for me, whether she’s a good person under all that twinkly perfect facade her daddy’s money gives her, or if she’s truly someone who believes that she deserves what she wants regardless of how it effects anyone else.

I’m not sure I get where the story is planning to go at this point, because for now, it seems like everyone has retired to their respective corners and called a story-wide truce on making each other miserable. I’m sure we’re not done with the heartache yet, and I have a feeling that Joon-young’s new focus is going to be persuading Jung-eun to do the right thing. At least I hope — I really love Im Joo-eun as an actress, and I’ve been wishing for her to be given something more interesting to do than whine and simper. I want to see her struggle with her choice, to really dig deep and have to decide whether to confess to her crime. I feel like Jung-eun’s decision is going to be a huge turning point in Joon-young and Eul’s relationship, and in this case, I’m hoping for a lot of soul-searching and angst before we get there.

I kinda feel the same as Lollypip does right now; Jung-Eun's got this mean streak but she's mainly an empty product of her upbringing and to me, she's a super interesting second female lead thus far. Credits to the actor too; did you see her expression in the last scene? Her face contorted from anger to sadness to pain all in one...just amazing.

You know I felt this way about Jung Eun until she asked her dad what happened to her victim. When Dad replied that the man had died she responded AFTER pausing to think about it "Good." She based this on feeling he would've just been a burden on his family since the man was poor. That's when I lost respect for her...for good!

And the terminal illness part is ???? because it's like he thinks i'll be perfectlyfine for those months and then just suddenly drop dead. I would at least understand more if this was a 'you can die at any moment' thing like the brain bullet in ISILY but this is really strange to me.

Heck even I, myself, don't understand why I love this show so much. Makjang drama usually is not my cup of tea. Probably it's because I just finished watching Game of Thrones season 6 that all of these tragedies in this show seem so cute compared to GoT. LOL.

With JY focused on easing Eul's suffering this episode, a small part of me wondered if he was going to sacrifice himself and his love by setting up her and Ji-Tae so she could have someone to love her and take care of her. I'd love to see JY be that noble but doubt this is where the show is headed.

Ewww... noooo. I'd hate JY if he did that. It's for NE to decide, really. Let her choose the one she wants to spend the rest of her life with. If she wants to be with JT, so be it (even though it's gonna break my heart). But no one should decide it for her.

Lol - of course Eul would get to choose. I guess I worded my thought poorly. I was thinking more of a paving the way for them to be together. Eul did propose to Ji-Tae earlier, and while it wasn't a proposal out of romantic love, it did show some interest on her part.

That said, I don't see it going this way, it was just a thought I had. I am still actually still shipping NE and JY and hoping for a way for them to be together for a long time (with him miraculously cured, of course), but feel pretty sure that won't hapoen either.

I've been thinking along the same line. If after learning the truth and Eul decides to spend the rest of Joon Young's time with him, they could be happy with whatever they have. Then Joon Young asks Ji Tae to watch out for Eul and if she is willing to marry her.

IS Joon-Young going to die? In a more serious drama I'd say definitely, but this show is more on the light-hearted and shallower side?

Then again, many shows have crashed and burned.

As long as they find a better ending besides sending him abroad and having him "miracuously" return because God saved him or something(can't get the God theme at the beginning of this drama out of my head). Welp.

@ Lime

예,

Joon Young will die, but as he dies there is a chance something might happen to extend his life expectancy. This is a melodrama, I would not bank on the best brain surgeon in the world to pretend to be an expert on shrinking and removing tumors here in melo world.

Because why would this illness be included, in the first place? But then again the writer may surprise us with a hidden plot point like a dream sequence or something.

I'm sorry but I don't feel even one bit of sympathy for Jung-Eun. I know she was raised that way - being dictated what to do and all that...but she's been an adult for quite a while now. She can make her own decisions if she wants to. Look at Ji Tae's transformation. Finally growing a backbone and standing up for what he thinks is right. We may be shaped largely by how our parents raised us, but we should be capable of driving our own life. It is a choice we make on our own and not something that we just give up because we are raised like that. It's not an easy step to drive your own life if you are sheltered and spoiled but like I said, you always have a choice. She's a thinking adult. She is very well capable of that . She just chooses not to. She enjoys the comfort of having people drive her own life. She brought this upon herself.

Which brings me to her involvement in the accident. I don't care if she's pitiful to some because she's rejected in love...but I want justice for Eul's family. Jung Eun deserves to go to jail and pay for her sins. She killed a man and willingfully agreed to have her dad take care of it and pin someone else for her crime. Again, she's a thinking adult. She had a choice - and she chooses to accept her dad's ways of settling things even if she knows it is not right. She hit a man and accidentally killed him...then agreed to pinning someone else so she can get away and continue to live comfortably while other people are suffering. No, I don't feel any sympathy for her at all.

What sealed it is when her dad told her the man died she was like that's good. No guilt, no sympathy nothing. She literally felt NOTHING FOR MURDERING A MAN! Being raised pampered does not absolve you from common emotions. She obviously can feel emotions since she's sooo in love and in pain over Ji Tae so why can't she feel anything for the man she killed? It's one thing to be afraid of jail or consequences, but to literally feel no blame or guilt is an entirely different matter. I would understand the fear of jail but I can't forgive her complete lack of humanity.

Second lead women are written to be an unlikeable bitch in most kdramas so of course this is the way they show her.

I don't know if it was the look of fear and guilt on JE face at the accident or just the actress portraying it that way but she clearly feels something back then. Even when she said it's good the man died, I saw it as she was forcing herself to think that way and go along with her dad. She asked about the man at all that clearly means she thought about it even if her actions were wrong.

We see so little of JE which is weird because she is the one who caused the first accident that starts all this, she's not a good person but I still find her pitiful.

I think the way Im Jo Eun portraying her character made it more believable. Of course it is unlikeable second lead, just like the usual other kdramas. But she is not pure evil. She looks like she has a bit guilty / know the wrong the committed but she just chose to keep it quiet and went along with her father. I hope there will be more stories about her and I want to see her finally admit the truth and has a courage to stand up against her father.

I'm watching her scenes only even it is so limited, since I like her. Im Jo Eun is kind of versatile actress.

Yes! They should totally have an official award (unless there's already one I'm not aware of) for Best Most Hateable Actor, cos they act their hearts out in making these characters believably loathsome!

There's no light without shade, and without them, the story would feel less real, and the audience has the satisfaction of rooting even harder for the OTPs because of them.

Actually, could we get a second category: Best Villain We Hate But Love? That's for the really nuanced nasties who redeem themselves sufficiently for us to wish them a happy ending.

Somehow I am okay with the terminal illness premise. Since, badly speaking, Joon-young can inherit all his money and asset to No Eul, so she won't have to live some hard life anymore. Plus if Ji-tae being thrown away from his family, they can live well with Joon-young inheritance. Of course, Joon-young should be dead first. *please don't kill me Kim Woo-bin fans*

But seriously, I've never liked any melo and somehow I am always waiting for UF new episodes, and watching it as soon as I can, even with skipping some scenes, here and there.

i am okay with it too. it's not everyday that you get to see a melo drama, so this drama that centers around a terminally ill character is some what acceptable to me. well, u can't be expecting a happy ending drama only right. then it would b like every other happy ending drama, and nothing unique or different about this drama then.

I know that song that Mom ws singing, isn't it from a Jung Eunji drama? I saw clips of her singing it on youtube, for once I know a kdrama song ?

So now Joonyoung's plan is screw JE over by taking the movie role and dying in the middle? But he has cancer.... will he be able to keep working just like that and simply drop dead at the end of 3 months with just some headaches in the middle? Why do I expect this drama to show any realistic thing about cancer? Here new jobs make you get a doctor's certificate before you start, even Hollywood movies take our insurance on their stars. No one's going to check on JY health before he starts this movie?

And of course NE thinks the family sent JT to spy on her. He lied and hid his real name for so long, what else is she supposed to think?

I also feel a little bad for JE.... she's like a child who was never told what's right and wrong. She made a huge mistake but her parents never taught her to pay the consequences of a wrong action, and she has nothing in her life other than getting married to JT. Who will only be worse because no one is honest. Her birth family covers up the accident as if nothing happened, her in laws now pretending her relationship with JT and engagement is still on as if nothing happened.

To be fair, I think JY signed up for the movie simply to get close to JE and find a way to have her own up to what she did (since there's no evidence the only way to prove things now would be if she confessed herself). I don't think he's really thinking about the movie or being responsible for it. His priority is simply getting things done for NE before he dies.

Plot-wise, it gives the story an excuse for the four to keep having to interact with each other despite everything that's happened so far. Logical real-world health insurance-wise, well.. this is dramaland. Some things would have to be sacrificed. Lol!

I absolutely LOVE everything about this drama! It's reminding me of the intense vibe I got from La Dolce Vita in my first drama watching days three years ago. This is dealing superbly with twisted emotions, impending death, hopeful (and hopeless) love, lives gone wrong due to poor choices, family ties - whether right or wrong...all of it. Just all of it hits the right note for me because I've seen and experienced just about 100% of this in my own six decades of life. Kudos to writer, director, cinematographer and actors!!!

Thanks for the recap!

I think this is the first drama that I like the female lead pairing with both male leads~ =)

And it's unique to see how the story had kinda reversed for the guys: JY at first only wanted to be with NE but now has chosen to make what was wrong right. And JT before gave up on NE for his dad but now going against his family and try to take care of NE.
Also, JY now is trying to get close to JE as JT wanted to have nothing to do with her?!

I quite like the turn of events as we get to the midpoint now. Let the real drama begin!

Ji-tae’s mother is the most intersting part of this show for me - the plot makes little sense, but her character (and the way the actress is playing her) is genuinely frightening.

She comes across as this fragile thing, but she's completely ruthless. She actually seems kind of nuts, like she believes in an outcome and then makes a ton of small unnoticeable moves to bring that outcome about. Relentless. And then she goes into dormant mode when things are going her way.

She's very spooky. Everyone believes her mild appearance because for 95% of the time that's all she is, but it's providing a smokescreen for the 5% when she's bloodthirsty, willing to scare off pregnant competition, financially destroy a young woman, and literally hit a schoolboy with her car. It'll be interesting to see if she gets desperate enough to accidentally show that side of her to anyone other than Ji Tae.

LKH drama parents are always bad parents or useless (or dead) but this one is extra.

I really think there has to be something wrong with her mind. Like her telling JE the wedding will go on, as if JT didn't refuse to show up? almost like she really believes that. That's the scariest type, she seems convinced she is always right and that makes her even worse. Even JE looked a bit at that part.

It's the Olympics, I think most people will watch someone like Simone Biles or SK/NK athletes getting the rare chance to greet each other rather than a winter melodrama.

There was one shooting event where the SK shooter won gold and the NK one got the bronze, it's somehow touching to see that, and I'm not even Korean. We have conflict and partition too but at least the India-Pak cricket teams and other sports people see each other often.

YAY Recap!

I really do hate Jung-Eun but your theory is indeed interesting. Also based on the preview, [SPOILERS FROM PREVIEW]... Eul may actually feel guilty that she stole someone else's man.

I absolutely love JiTae here! If he keeps doing this, I may turn #TeamJiTae instead of the two leads being on equal footing. But I really do admire how JY's new goal is to return the justice to Eul. KWB's acting is really the one keeping me still with one foot on #TeamJY....

But if the two men do work together, that would be wonderful as well!

Still hate Ji Tae's mom. Ugh.

I wonder how Jik will handle it when he finds out who HaRu really is? And poor HaRu: her first crush is her half brother, and now her new crush is being threatened by mom. I wonder how SHE's gonna handle it. Teens. LOL.

Even though it was the slip of her tongue, I could slap her for the way she has treated Eul so far and for losing the stray kitten on behalf of Jik. As Jik does not seem violent so far, hopefully he won't go up against JY when he comes to learn the whole truth.

If this is happened in real life, I'd say the same thing. But UF is just a drama and the writer decides the way things work in it.

There's a feather shown in NE's car accident scene. The similar feather appeared when SJY was crying in his car after he visited the doctor who diagnosed him with terminal illness. I think it's the writer's way to show us that somehow these two occurrences are related.

Uh-oh! Now I wonder how closely their fates are entwined. If the writer is implying that Joon Young gave up his life/happiness so that No Eul could live, then what happens when No Eul finds out that he is sick and begs for his life? The writer has already had No Eul say that her body is weak from the accident (after she fainted). I hope that they don't have such an ill-fated love that they both die at the end! It's definitely happened before in Melos, but I would rather have No Eul live on, sad, but stronger due to her love with Joon Young.

Omg! JE's breakdown scene and that perfect song hit me hard with emotions and literally gave me goosebumps. I have rewatched that scene several times already.
I'm also so very in love with the cold wintery feel and cinematography. plus the directing is something i've really enjoyed so far. that scene when JT is telling E the truth about his identity, the sun flare is shining right in the middle of them. very nice.
at first It was hard to take the sudden choices of characters in this episode. but then they all feel like they're too frustrated and just want to move on and do something, NE could shut JT out for the huge lies he's been telling her all that time. but instead she made use of those info to get what she wanted. JT feels so done with all the lies, and that punch JY gave him really worked to make him move to. Just like the virtual punch JT gave JY in ep. 11. and now he's on a mission to do something productive for NE so she can live better if he's not around, and he'd feel less guilty if he gets the chance to be with her.
and wow, Choi finally finds Young Ok. and in front of JY's house.
aaaah!! i used to watch this drama as a distraction from real life but now i'll have to get myself busy to distract myself from dealing with the impatience and survive the week til next episode Lol. thanks UF, for somehow helping me focus on my real life :))
And a special thumbs up for Jik's face when Haru blurts "I like him!! "

Ha ru, the pampered princess, seems a little love starved, herself. Does she fall for the first guy who shows an interest in her?

And yes, I am firmly one who thinks that Eul would be better off with Ji Tae. For many reasons. First of which, Ji Tae isn't going to die any time soon. Eul genuinely likes him, and he loves her. Without all the added drama of his parents and Joon young butting in, they would have made a lovely couple.

Secondly, let's face it. Joon young treats Eul like crap. I don't know in what world where it is acceptable to let a woman fall in love with you without disclosing that you have a terminal illness that will kill you in less than three months!

When your lady love is in crises, you don't communicate a single word to her. Not one word! So she believes you don't really care about her after pursuing her so ardently a few days earlier.

In the words of Katy Perry you're hot then you're cold....

Dude needs to put his priorities in order and start letting his loved ones know how truly sick he is. Funny how it's way much easier to confess to a stranger than one's own family.

I've been on the JT ship from the beginning because I just can't justify JY's behavior. And yeah I was actually laughing and shaking my head when he spilled his life secrets to a stranger without a hesitation. I know he doesn't want the people he loves be in pain blablabla but is he just planning to drop of the face of the earth in three months?
Btw how long are 3 months in this drama or did only a week or two pass since the whole "let's make her fall in love with me, now let's stay away from her"-shenanigans?

At this stage if I were NE I'd absolutely believe he was playing a sick game with me this whole time.

I'm confused with E's feelings for JY tho. We saw in the flashbacks back in highschool times that she once had a crush on JY and was preparing to confess. maybe even lovd him, so basically he could've been her first love. so let's not underestimate thos past feelings. as a girl i feel like i'm always vulnerable when it comes to the person i first loved and we alk know that feeling girls. JT came after JY. but doesn't mean she couldn't fall for JY again and easily. plus both boys have left her in the time of crisis at some point so i really can't pick one above the other aside from JY being terminally ill. and i love both boys. i want both to have her ugh !!

I think it is easier cuz a stranger wouldn't care and worry and hurt as much as his loved ones. he doesn't want anyone's pitty either. and he only told the lawyer about his illness, to help take the truth out of him. if he had not told him he was dying and that the truth would be buried with him and the lawyer would have to take all the guilt on his shoulders alone, i don't think the lawyer would've opened up. so it makes sense to me.

JY thought NE had already forgotten what happened in the past and moved on (which kind of stupid of him, I know). But the incident between NE and CHJ in episode 10 made him realized that NE never forgot it and is still suffering because of her father's hit n run case. He's already feeling guilty because he's the one who stole NE's usb drive and CJT added fuel into the fire by reminding him what he did in the past.

Shin Joon Young continues not to let Noh Eul know that he is thinking about her and working to help her. I like his commitment to make things right for No Eul before he dies.

I agree with your take on it as that was my understanding as well. Lawyer Cha refused the bribe Prosecutor Choi offered, held on to his integrity, and refused to cover up the case.

JE developing a conscience now will be thanks to JY. I loved that he saved her and now he is the one calling the shots, he is the director of his own drama. It is like even though JY always felt bad about Eul's accident and the USB thing, not ruining Choi at that allotted time, it is like he could not shake or share the burden of Eul's first encounter with Choi, but now discovering and saving JE he has some thing to work with. And they are the same, or he feels equal to this JE she did feel bad about her crime but her cover up was terrible, the same with JY but we are constantly shared his thoughts. It doesn't redeem either JY or JE but seeing the two together gives you the sense that Eul doesn't care if hypothetically JY did something worse than JE, actually yeah he did, but Eul knows she can forgive JY because of the reason she was first in love with him, ehhh I don't know his caring and justice seeking soul that has now come back to haunt us all with the last 4 weeks left on the clock for him.

i actually feel sorry for NE coz she's just hanging on by a very very thin thread. like -- she's almost dead inside coz of all the tragedies (dad dead, poor, loan sharks, criminal charges, death threats) then now the people she trusted: JY doesnt contact her.. then JT who she thought she knew was apparently her enemy's son. When she finds out that JY is also Choi's son, she'd probably be like:

ME AND MY CHOICES IN LIFE.

It's like when you've hit rock bottom, you can't even cry anymore --> you've run out of tears --> crying is exhausting --> whatever, meh --> LOL, F this

Suzy's role has one problem for me.
She is stunning. It's completely logical that so many guys fall for her.

The wardrobe and production team are doing the real gymnastics this summer trying to convince us that she is average.
"Looking like a beggar" my butt....

So I don't believe her character and circumstances.
I've seen really beautifull people in real life, and they have more opportunities than us "normals". They are offered better jobs, treated differently, even get best seatings at restaurants.

I don't believe if she is half good at being a PD she hasn't a better position in the industry.

"Another Oh Hae Young" was realistic in this regard. Also "She was pretty" and "Birth of a beauty".

I'm not saing that it's fair, this bias for beauty, but trying to convince me that Suzy is confused with a beggar puts this show in Science Fiction territory.

I agree, the most remorseful person ever: JY, does not deserve this, I say redemption can go to hell. JY doesn't need redemption afterall Eul is a bribe taker of the grandest kind, possible extortionist -- yes justified, and possible attempted murderer -- yes justified, and she didn't do it. But if she has such a kind heart to forgive JiTae then she can forgive redemption seeking hero: Joon Young and they need to get it together for Joon Young's final days even if it is just for us who watch the show, yeah.

8. Eight episodes to go but let's hope JTs mom goes all psycho on us and starts shooting in a crowd where she spots Eul and Ji Tae as a couple and Choi and Young Ok have also happened to be spotted at the same place. She goes beserk seeing her man with that woman. But they there to discuss JY last will and testiment and the place happens to be the hospital and Eul although denying her grief has tagged along with Ji Tae as it is undeniable JY showed him what true guys is and he is there to support his dying "step-brother" but at this point they act like loving brothers. In that moment crazy JiTaes mom realizes if she tries to shoot Young Ok, Choi Would fly to her rescue humiliating her so she blames the source of her disgrace on Eul, but JT is called away to speak to JY because JY wants nothing to do with his mother or father. JT enters the room, it is empty. A gunshot goes off. Let me guess it double pierces JY and Eul. They die in each other's arms. Although JY was terminal and his mom and dad were brought in his true illness was never revealed to her.

Oops I also went gun crazy there. Like she couldn't do it by car like everyone else in the show does. Oh yeah loved JY in the red car this episode, hope no one crashed the white one. Is the yellow vehicle a Jeep or Hummer, sorry I don't know branding in Korea that well and never watch the credits.

Gotta admit, I have to see what Young Ok is going to do, she is so unpredictable...or is it stubborn? She probably will run all the way back to the restaurant, and when Choi gets there, finding it vaguely familiar he reads the sign: 'blahblah we are anti JY', but YO was just at JYs house???, that jogs his memory of being there a few year back and he remembers offering JY a ride to the hospital with his mom. Suddenly a flurry of emotions overtake him and he works out that his name; Hyun Joon and Young Oks name with some mathematical cancellations equal Joon Young. Hehe. So much for waiting for Wednesday, I can't.

Lol ?
I think this waiting is getting too hard for ya ? i'm in it with u tho. only 2 days left !

Agree. YO might run off again. tho i believe even without remembering another memory Choi will find out about the connection now. cuz while YO and oppa were struggling at the door, oppa mentioned her being JY's Mom, not knowing Choi was there.

I honestly thought this was going to be a romantic comedy. But a makjang with KWB as an irredeemable hero was more something I was wanting to see. Lol!!!

I will admit that even after all the angst between our leads, the story line that interests me most right now is between Young Ok and Assemblyman Choi. I am so anxious to see where this will go now that they have been reunited. Will she have an impact on him and pull him back on that slippery slope he is currently on? Also, I can see why we have gotten to where we are with our leads, but I cant help feeling so frustrated because we know Joon Young has so little time left and they both really care for each other, but due to circumstances, our leads are not together.

Am I the only one who noticed that the actress playing as Choi Haroo(Ji Tae's younger sister) really looked like Hee Chul of Super Junior? They can play characters as siblings in dramas. Haha. :D

I really feel no pity towards what's her face. I hate when people always treat female characters like they are never to blame, it is always someone else's doing for them to be a certain way. The thing is we all are a certain way because of others doing, but moslty we are the product of the things we choose to be and the things we choose to see, or ignore. She is already waaay past the age to be blaming someone else to be a poor excuse of a human being. She is obsessed with Ji Tae. Obsession make you do ridiculous things so when people say that this drama and characters are really "makjang" It feel like they don't really pay attention to reality at all. Life is crazier than fiction. Forever and always. To answer the question of many in the comments "why do people like to watch a drama about a terminally ill character?" for me, it is common for people to ask "what would you do if you died (time term)?" because really death is the one thing we all have in common. It is intersting to me what someone would choose to do if they knew they had less time then they thought. People interest me. Their choices and minds. Believe me, once you try to understand yourself, and cut through all the bullshit you have fed yourself forever, other people become really easy to understand. Though what I would really liek to know is why people say the plot makes no sense... like really im not being sarcasting, im genuinely curious...

This episode was good, revealed a lot. I loved the scene with Ji Tae and his father. Bold, strong, brave and smart Ji Tae!! YAY!! Finally :).

I want more interaction from JY and Eul, but understand his resolve to help her have closure and subsequently a better future.

I could do without the CEO scenes. Fire his greedy butt already. Every time he speaks I want to hit mute.

I hope the upcoming episode shows JY's Mom and Dad really talk to each other. Not her running away again.....

It was fun seeing Yoon Park in this episode. Complete opposite of his character in Age of Youth, which he's completely gorgeous and adorable. If you're not watching Age of Youth- you should.. just for his storyline. Goosebumps chemistry.

Kim Woo Bin and Suzy are still doing a great work! Love them together, even its just for a second.

Agree with you Lollypop! The music and cinematography have been amazing. Hot in FL, but with the air con on and UF playing, I feel like its winter for two hours a week. The song Golden Love by Midnight Youth, puts me in that space every time. So good!

I feel a bit let down....iam not yet at ep12 in fact just finished ep4 and since it is becoming obvious that the Joon young is going to die I don't wanna continue watching it. I mean I was never prepared for this to be such a serious drama. I was in fact hoping it to be a light sweet romcom. Now even though the story is interesting and all I don't wanna watch it anymore because of the sad ending. Sorry but I hate sad endings. I watch dramas as an escape from reality and this is not the escape I look for. Now I will wait for ep20 to release and only that will make me proceed from ep4. Which is a petty for me because it could have been an equally interesting drama without the terminal illness plot......whatever happened to a simple bone marrow transplant from the dad could save his life plot......even that would have been better.....

Can I tell you I have the cure?

No, I can't.

I noticed that our beloved writer, has allowed us to see part of JYs suffering. Well acted by KWB by the way. It feels weird seeing him in those tough scenes but I could watch it again because it is him. And I cry even before scene because I know it's coming.

I think JY and Eul's separation is for us to experience some more quietness now during the last weeks and his heroic tendencies rather than his arrogant jerk appeal.

Fine I watched him for his great chemistry with the dog.
