1% of Anything: Episode 8

We’ve reached the midpoint of the series, and it’s finally time to savor the cute and adorable moments between our main couple. They’re becoming more and more dependent on each other, and every date makes it harder and harder for them to prepare their hearts for the inevitable goodbye that they signed themselves up for. It’s a good thing though, because that means there’s a chance for both of them to decide to change it.

EPISODE 8: “Stay here. At my house. By my side.”

Annoyed that Da-hyun has canceled their date, Jae-in marches out of his office in a huff, agitatedly trying to reach her. At home, Da-hyun is about to pick up Jae-in’s call when suddenly, she hears someone loudly knocking at her apartment door.

It’s her mom, and Da-hyun rushes over to let her in, forgetting all about Jae-in in the process. Meanwhile, still inside the hotel elevator, a frustrated Jae-in wonders why Da-hyun isn’t picking up.

Just then, the elevator doors slide open and in steps Jae-in’s ex, Joo-hee, accompanied by a middle-aged businessman. Clearly hoping to spark some jealousy, she cautiously asks Jae-in if he’s curious to know why she’s coming out of a hotel suite with a man, but Jae-in doesn’t let her get to him — he simply responds that he’s not particularly interested in her personal life.

As they step out of the elevator, Joo-hee tells Jae-in that she was being sincere when she asked that they start over. Jae-in responds that he was being sincerep too, and he makes it clear that he has no reason whatsoever to start over with her.

Joo-hee tells Jae-in that she hasn’t been able to find a man as good as him, and even promises to sign the prenuptial that he wanted. Jae-in tells her to do whatever she wants, retorting that it’s not like he’s the one she’ll be marrying anyway.

Joo-hee reminds Jae-in to think of the situation with a practical mindset — she’s an only child, and Jae-in will definitely have use for the company shares that he would gain through marrying her. Jae-in stops her from saying any more and walks off, leaving Joo-hee to remark aloud that he’s the same as ever.

At Da-hyun’s apartment, her mom demands to know whether the rumor she heard from Sun-woo is true or not: Is Da-hyun’s boyfriend really a chaebol? Grimacing, Da-hyun confirms it, and her mom asks Da-hyun if she’s lost her mind.

Da-hyun doesn’t make things any better when she reassures her mom that it’s just a sponsorship, and that she’s dating Jae-in in return for him helping out with Ji-soo’s contract issues. Da-hyun adds that it’s not even like she has to sleep with Jae-in or anything and at that… which is when her mom loses it, giving Da-hyun a forceful whack on the arm for even daring to mention sex.

Her mom orders Da-hyun to stop this charade immediately, but Da-hyun argues that she already signed a contract, and there’s no going back now. Promising that they have no intention of getting married, Da-hyun insists that everything is strictly business, but her mom remains unconvinced.

Later, as Da-hyun and her mom are making dinner, Da-hyun gets a call from Jae-in, who’s curious to hear about her mom’s reaction. Da-hyun tells him truthfully that her mom just wants a son-in-law who isn’t too rich or too poor, and Jae-in rolls his eyes in disbelief.

He asks what Da-hyun thinks, and she responds that there’s nothing to even think about — it’s not like she’ll ever meet another chaebol after they break up. Her statement makes Jae-in stop in his tracks, as if he wants to say something to counter that.

Before he does though, Da-hyun’s mom interrupts and calls out to her daughter, and Da-hyun quickly ends the call. Jae-in can only stare at his phone, complaining that Da-hyun’s always the one to hang up first. He notes that Da-hyun’s already thinking about breaking up, and it’s a thought that seems to bother him quite a bit.

The next day, Da-hyun’s mom demands to see Jae-in so that she can feel at ease about this whole “business” transaction. Da-hyun points out that a meeting with the parents will just make the relationship seem more real, and she insists that there’s only two more months left to the contract.

Relenting, her mom asks Da-hyun if she’s sure that there’s only two months left, and Da-hyun nods her head. With that assurance, Da-hyun’s mom decides to trust her daughter, and takes her leave.

After seeing her mom off, Da-hyun comes back to her apartment only to find Jae-in outside, waiting to meet her mom. Da-hyun laughs that considering how hard it was to convince her mom that they’re in a business relationship, her mom would freak out if she knew that Jae-in came all the way here to meet her.

Jae-in’s a bit peeved to hear their relationship being characterized as “business,” but Da-hyun just says it’s not a completely inaccurate description. She tells him that she made it clear to her mom that they weren’t getting married, and adds that her mom thinks they would get divorced in two months if they actually did get married anyway.

Jae-in snaps that the word “divorce” doesn’t exist in his dictionary, and Da-hyun agrees that it should be that way, but remarks that she’s not the one he’s marrying anyway. Jae-in doesn’t say anything in response.

At night, the couple goes for a walk around the neighborhood to make up for Da-hyun canceling the day before. A jogger suddenly bumps into Da-hyun, and Jae-in instinctively catches her by the shoulders. He asks if she’s okay, and sweetly takes her hand into his as they stroll down the street.

Sitting near a playground, Jae-in reminds Da-hyun that considering how she canceled on him yesterday, he’s being suuuuper magnanimous today. Da-hyun retorts that he stood her up without even so much as a text, and points out that someone who’s actually being magnanimous and forgiving wouldn’t say that she owes him.

Jae-in argues that nothing is free in this world, and tells Da-hyun that the most important lesson he learned from Grandpa is to never forget a debt, whether someone owes you, or you owe someone else.

Da-hyun notes that Jae-in has learned a lot from Grandpa, but suggests that living by such a motto would make one an awfully inconsiderate person. Jae-in agrees and adds that that’s exactly why being considerate is only a hindrance in the business world. Da-hyun just makes a face at him.

The next day, Jae-in calls a terrified Employee Kang into his office. Handing over the documents that his mother gave him a few days ago, Jae-in asks Employee Kang to look into Tae-ha’s father.

Jae-in comments that Grandpa’s probably noticed something by now, and when Employee Kang asks why Jae-in is entrusting this task to him, Jae-in just tells him that he’s the only one he can trust.

Besides, Jae-in adds with a sly smile, Employee Kang needs to choose a side — Grandpa might be hard on Employee Kang right now, but Jae-in’s the one who’s going to be around for the next thirty years. In shock, Employee Kang stutters that he’s definitely on Jae-in’s side.

At school, Da-hyun picks up a call from Jae-in and apologizes — she won’t have time to meet with him today. She’s busy helping her students prepare for a dance competition, and Jae-in balks to hear that “those little things” take priority over him.

Da-hyun suddenly recalls that it should be Jae-in’s turn to come to her this time if they want to keep things fair, and hangs up on him. In his office, Jae-in looks at his phone with displeasure and decides to do exactly what Da-hyun wants.

He pulls up to Da-hyun’s school in his fancy car, and walks straight into Da-hyun’s classroom, much to her annoyance. Forcing a smile in front of her students, she asks Jae-in what he’s doing here, but he just smirks that she was the one who wanted him to come.

Gritting her teeth, Da-hyun tells him only parents are allowed to observe the class, and Jae-in grins, saying she should tell that to the assistant principal, who was the one who let him into the classroom in the first place. Da-hyun has no choice but to let him stay, though she does so with great reluctance.

At the end of class, two of Da-hyun’s students approach Jae-in and ask him if he’s their teacher’s boyfriend. Da-hyun cuts in, hurriedly explaining that they’re not in that kind of relationship, but Jae-in chides her not to lie to children and answers that yes, they’re dating. (Ha.) The kids giggle in delight, and Da-hyun quickly ushers them away.

Later, Da-hyun complains to Jae-in that now the whole school will be gossiping about the two of them. She asks him how he would like it if she did something similar in return, telling him that the next time they meet at the hotel, she’ll bring a massive sign with his name plastered all over it.

Jae-in just tells her to go ahead, laughing that the reporters would have a field day with her. Da-hyun knows that there’s no winning this argument.

Sitting on the seesaw at the children’s playground outside, Jae-in comments that the location is great and jokes that it’d be perfect to build a resort here. Da-hyun tells him not to even dream of touching this land, and he gets up suddenly in response, causing her side of the seesaw to fall abruptly.

Jae-in grabs her hand and leads her over to the swings, commenting that Da-hyun should like this, since she likes doing whatever kids do. They swing back and forth for a while, just chatting, when Da-hyun gets the idea to playfully push Jae-in’s swing a little higher.

He gets up and she starts running from him, and they get into a cute game of catch-me-if-you-can. As Da-hyun climbs up the jungle gym, Jae-in traps her between the bars so that she’s sitting down and facing him.

He leans forward slowly and grins, grabbing her chin before moving in to plant a kiss on her lips. As Da-hyun gradually registers the kiss, she eases into it, and they stay that way for a bit before Jae-in pulls back. Jae-in just beams at her as he continues to stroke her cheek, and Da-hyun smiles back shyly.

Jae-in brings Da-hyun back to her house and makes sure that she’s the one coming to him next time. He jokes that she can come to the hotel too (cue the wolf howl sound effect), and she groans at his sense of humor.

As Da-hyun turns to go inside, Jae-in suddenly grabs her arm and yanks her back. He asks if she locked her door before leaving, and she notices that her door’s been left ajar. She gasps and shuffles behind Jae-in for protection.

He tells her to stay where she is, and as soon as he steps inside the house, his eyes widen in alarm. Da-hyun’s things lay strewn across the floor, and it’s clear that someone has ransacked her house while she was gone for the day.

Stuttering that there must have been a thief, Da-hyun nearly falls over from the shock, but Jae-in catches her and asks if she’s all right. He tells her that it’s fine as long as no one got hurt, and suggests that she stay at his place for the night, since she probably won’t be able to sleep soundly in her own apartment.

When they arrive at Jae-in’s house, Da-hyun comments that it looks so empty, and he just responds that he doesn’t like clutter. He reassures her that his house is safe so she can rest easy, and Da-hyun nods in gratitude.

In his room, Jae-in makes a call, highlighting his suspicions about the burglary. He admits that there was nothing expensive enough for someone to go through the trouble of burglarizing, but still thinks it’s strange that so many things were left untouched. He adds that the police dropped by, and asks for a more thorough investigation.

Wandering around Jae-in’s house, Da-hyun walks over to his room, catching him right as he’s taking off his shirt. The bag that she had been carrying drops to her feet, and she goes wide-eyed, immediately running away at the sight of his shirtless torso. Jae-in laughs and remarks that she’s sure putting up an innocent act.

Downstairs in the living room, Da-hyun fans herself in embarrassment. When Jae-in comes down to offer her a change of clothes, she asks if he’s planning to go back to the hotel to do his work.

Jae-in says that he thought she’d feel better having him around rather than staying in by herself. He adds that his house is big and there aren’t any bad guys around, so she doesn’t have to worry. Pointing a not-so-subtle finger at Jae-in, Da-hyun asks hesitatingly if he’s sure that there are no bad guys around. Ha.

Jae-in pulls her finger forward so that he draws her towards him. Da-hyun makes sure to tell him that she didn’t see anything earlier, and he just laughs, replying that he never said anything about it.

In Jae-in’s bedroom, Da-hyun asks if the plan is for them to sleep together on his bed tonight. Asking if she’s saying that they can’t, he grabs her by the waist and gazes into her eyes.

Da-hyun looks around nervously and says that to be honest, she’s a little tempted right now, but she doesn’t think she can do it. She thinks that one of them will probably regret it tomorrow morning, and Jae-in just tells her that he definitely won’t be the one who regrets it. Nevertheless, he tells her that he respects her opinion, and asks her to go sleep first.

As Jae-in is working away, Da-hyun wanders down to the kitchen and opens the fridge. She beams in delight when she sees that the brand of alcohol is called Dada, noting that it shares a name with her.

Later in the night, Da-hyun is drunkenly playing with Jae-in’s Jenga blocks, mumbling that he can do his hotel-related work while she builds her own “hotel.” The Jenga blocks come crumbling down as Jae-in joins her in the living room, and he tells her that she should’ve called him over since he’s an expert at this game.

He complains that she started drinking without him, and she offers him her opened bottle. They note that it’s raining outside again, and Da-hyun tells him that it seems to be more than just a brief shower this time.

Agreeing, Jae-in puts his arm around her to cuddle, and Da-hyun rests her head on his shoulder. She tells him softly that he’d better not think of sleeping with her tonight — only someone less than human would lay his hands on a drunk woman.

Jae-in agrees, but asks if she drank this much just to prevent him from sleeping with her. She denies that — she’s just wondering what she’s doing at a man’s house. Ha, she’s so disoriented that she actually starts to wonder why she’s here, and Jae-in has to remind her that a thief broke into her house.

Turning her head, Da-hyun gazes into Jae-in’s eyes and caresses his cheek, to his excited bewilderment. She moves her finger across his lips and mumbles slowly, “I think… that I… like you, Jae-in.”

Perhaps too happy to respond, Jae-in can only stare back at Da-hyun. She adds that she likes kissing him too and pulls him in for one, and Jae-in is thoroughly astonished. Da-hyun buries her head into his shoulder and suggests that they go to sleep now, but Jae-in asks her how she can fall asleep after a confession like that.

He carries her up to the bedroom and looks fondly at her sleeping form, bending down to give her a light kiss on the cheek. He grabs a pillow and sets it on the floor by the bed, and, looking up at Da-hyun, he tells her that he thinks that he’ll be the one who’ll regret it tomorrow morning.

The next morning, a groggy Da-hyun immediately remembers her embarrassing drunken confession from the night before and smacks herself, crying out, “Alcohol, my enemy!” Mortified, she buries her head into her pillow.

She tiptoes around the house, doing her best to avoid being seen by Jae-in. She walks over to a balcony area and breathes in the fresh air, when suddenly, she spots a puppy crawling dangerously along the ledge outside.

Climbing over the railing, she slowly inches across to save the clueless puppy, which is exactly when Jae-in spots her. As Da-hyun grabs the puppy, she loses her balance and slips off the ledge, but Jae-in runs in to cushion her fall.

Da-hyun gets up and starts worrying that Jae-in is dead when he doesn’t immediately respond to her, but Jae-in just groans in pain that he’s definitely not dead. He tells her to take care of herself before taking care of the puppy and adds that she should be extra careful since she’s so clumsy.

He starts to pull her up, but moans in pain when she grabs his arm. It turns out that he’s dislocated his shoulder, and Da-hyun worries over him.

At SH Mall, Tae-ha tells his father that it’s suspicious for the mall’s stock prices to go up so much. His father simply responds that it’s natural for stock prices to go up and down, and assures Tae-ha that it’s a good thing for them. He tells Tae-ha to focus on getting to know more about Da-hyun, and Tae-ha looks suspiciously at his father as they part ways.

Back at Jae-in’s house, he leads Da-hyun over to the couch so that he can apply ointment on her scrapes. She tells him that they should be more concerned about his shoulder, but he just sits her down and tells her that he’s moody enough, considering how he couldn’t get any sleep last night.

Da-hyun starts to wonder why he didn’t get enough sleep, but argues that he’s always a moody person anyway. As Jae-in applies the medicine, Da-hyun tells him hesitatingly not to change all of a sudden — there’s a saying that people die if they change drastically. He just sighs at her nonsense, and walks off as soon as he’s done applying the medicine.

When Da-hyun pulls open a drawer to put the medicine box away, she notices a framed picture lying inside the drawer. It’s Jae-in and his biological mother at a much happier time, and Da-hyun looks at it thoughtfully.

Upstairs, Jae-in is struggling to button his shirt when Da-hyun comes in. Jae-in tells her that it’s just a small sprain, but Da-hyun urges him to go to the hospital, noting that he can’t even lift his left arm.

Jae-in just hands Da-hyun his necktie and asks her to tie it for him, though she warns him that she’s pretty bad at it. She inches closer to loop the tie, but hesitates when she notices how close Jae-in’s face is to hers.

Avoiding eye contact, she steps back and continues tying the knot. Jae-in, on the other hand, keeps a steady gaze on her. Da-hyun slowly looks up, and their eyes meet.

COMMENTS

Cuuuuute. I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I love Jae-in now that he’s stopped picking fights with Da-hyun like a little boy and no longer attempts to control every aspect of her life. He’s learning to compromise, and for once, he’s the one who’s accommodating Da-hyun instead of the other way around.

Ironically though, as Jae-in adjusts to the notion of dating “fair and square,” he’s also going to start realizing that relationship “debts” are not as easily transferable as business debts. Chasing after debts probably led Jae-in to become the successful businessman he is today, but like Da-hyun said, that just translates to being inconsiderate on a social level.

Fortunately for everyone, Jae-in doesn’t even realize that he’s stopped chasing the debts in this relationship — sure, he’s still calculating who gets to choose their next date-spot, but that’s small potatoes compared to how he instinctively puts himself out there to be by Da-hyun’s side.

Whether it’s something small like catching her when someone bumps into her, or something big like running in to cushion her fall from a balcony, he’s just naturally jumping in to protect Da-hyun. It’s certainly not something that goes unnoticed by Da-hyun, and it’s probably one of the many reasons why she’s fallen for him.

On another note, Da-hyun seems to be extremely guarded with her heart, yet unguarded at the same time. I can understand why she’s afraid to show that she’s already fallen for Jae-in, and why she keeps insisting to everyone that they’re just in a business relationship, but I imagine that her mixed signals prior to her confession were as confusing to Jae-in as they were to me.

During their phone call, she was resigned to the fact that their relationship wouldn’t work out, making it seem like she wasn’t hoping for anything more. It’s like she wasn’t planning to even try to continue their relationship.

At the same time, Da-hyun unhesitatingly returned Jae-in’s kiss at the jungle gym, suggesting that she’s not worried that Jae-in will find out about her crush on him. We know that she’s probably interested in being in a real relationship with Jae-in, but how is Jae-in supposed to know that when she keeps describing their relationship as only business?

It’s no surprise that Jae-in keeps hesitating when he clearly wants to tell her that their relationship is more than just business to him, and I’m glad that he at least got a drunken confession from her so that he has at least some idea of where he stands in Da-hyun’s heart.

Speaking of the confession, I loved the way Jae-in didn’t really know how to react. He probably had an idea that Da-hyun was attracted to him, but he was so excited and bewildered to realize how far deep she was in, because that’s probably how far deep in he’s been, too.

The running motif with the rain is also an interesting reflection of the progress of their relationship. Just a few months ago, the two had shared an umbrella under a brief but heavy shower, and that’s probably when the first inklings of an actual romance was starting to develop between them. Fast-forward a few months later, and their romance isn’t just a brief shower anymore, but a heavy thunderstorm that continues nonstop.

Same here! Ha Suk Jin never really stood out to me but after this drama I find him adorable and handsome at the same time lol

I was actually worried that such an old concept drama without hallyu actors would be unsuccessful. But it completely won me over. Their romance is also much healthier than some recent kdramas (I actually though to would be opposite).

Kyahhh, I'm in love with this show and Jae-in (or rather Ha Suk-jin?). The way he looks at Dada gives me butterflies. ? It's just so great to watch how their relationship has progressed and how much they respect each other now.
And I really really love their skinship, it looks so natural, like in the living room scene how he puts his cheek on her forehead when she's resting her head on his shoulders.

And he told her to pack some clothes but she didn't pack anything like pajamas? Girl, admit it, you (subconsciously) just wanted to wear his clothes, and I don't blame you at all. Kekeke

I love that he gave her the tie to tie, after she told him on his birthday what gifting a necktie would have meant and he asked for her to give him one. He looked so happy to have a reason for her to tie it for him!

Love them together, and that they seem to be feeling similarly about each other. SO cute!

My only questions for this episode are about Plot Puppy.

Where did that adorable fluff come from? How did he get on the second story ledge? Where did he go afterwards? He had a collar and leash on. Did he get hurt in the fall?
Did Jae-In and DaDa adopt him? Was the puppy already Jae-In's?!

My guess is "puppy" was tied up on the neighbors balcony for some fresh air. Managed to get loose, so lets call him Houdini. Houdini was completely uninjured in the fall and returned to a weeping neighbor who promised to be much more cautious in the future. Within hours of the incident the neighbor placed wire fencing on the inside of the balcony railing. The neighbor then received a Good Job stamp from DaDa. Now when Jae-In comes home late at night he is greeted by Houdini's yappy bark from the "safe" balcony.

I call for a spin off series called Plot Puppy, featuring Puffpuff, a sweet puppy who's superpower is creating meet cutes for unsuspecting future couples. Like running around a guy and girl to get them tangled up in his leash. Or running into a busy street, thereby forcing them to chase Puffpuff together.

This episode is filled with wonderful moments. The one I like best is the bedroom scene. DaDa is asleep on the bed having just turned toward Jae-In. Jae-In is on the floor looking up lovingly at DaDa. The King of Devils is dead, long live the Queen! ?

Jae-In has actually given up his bed to someone else, miracle. He is willingly sleeping on the floor acknowledging DaDa's comfort is more important than his. They are sleeping facing each other. The symbolism of Jae-In placing DaDa above him speaks volumes. True demonstrations of love come from small, subtle everyday acts of consideration.

For a supposedly huge house, how come there's only ONE bedroom! I know it advances the plot but, if I were DaDa, that would be my first question.

Just to clarify the situation, pretend you are a healthy, attractive 25 year old woman. Who has been dating a healthy, attractive 32 year old man. You have kissed and it made your legs buckle. Your heart beats a little faster whenever you are near him. He is at times rough around the edges, but has a very tender and caring side that he tries to hide. Your apartment has been broken into and he has handled the situation masterfully. He has taken you to his apartment because he is genuinely concerned about your welfare. Your first thought is that he overpaid for the property because it only has one bedroom. A much better investment would have been one with at least two bedrooms. He is going to loose quite a bit of money when he goes to resell it. You ask him for a calculator, pad and pencil. Then sit at the kitchen table and begin explaining how this apartment is actually a poor investment, using numbers to support your claim.

Is that how DaDa should have behaved in the scene?

MALE EGO REALITY CHECK
We only actually have Jae-In's claim that he is player with no supporting evidence. In addition consider the following:

- He works 12-16 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- He was engaged to the "Ice Troll" for 3 years.
- He stated < 10% of the gossip articles were true.
- He is the worst pickup artist in Korea.
- He is super handsome, until he speaks.

If you look really hard at pre-DaDa Jae-In could he really have been a player?

Does anyone know the name of the song they played during the first part of the bedroom scene (when JI carried DH to the bed and then kissed her cheek)? It's such a lovely song that perfectly matched the coziness of the scene, evoking feelings of a sweet and tender love.

I really appreciate that he smiled at her and kissed her on the cheek as she was sleeping because it was a spontaneous expression of his genuine affection for her, and it wasn't done because he could get something in return. It's been obvious that he's attracted to her and enjoys being with her, but that was a clear indication that she's managed to unlock the door to his heart. It demonstrated the same thing that her sweet, candid (due to inebriation) confession and kiss did: the feelings are genuine. That whole sequence was just so lovely.

The thing that's really perplexing is how Dada's mum is apparently less bothered that it's a sponsorship instead of a real relationship! If I told my mum that I'm dating a chaebol, no matter how worried she is about the difference in perceived social standings, I'm sure she'll be more comfortable if it's a genuine relationship. Hell will break loose if I explained to my mum that I'm doing it for something in return. I'm pretty sure this is the normal reaction lol.

Think about it, her mother grew up watching Korean dramas. She has seen this same storyline hundreds of times before. It is not a real problem until the would be mother-in-law starts going makjang.

Seriously though, her mother's behavior was exactly what you would have expected from DaDa's mother. She wants a son-in-law who is not too rich or too poor. She ultimately trusts her daughter. When Jae-In was trying to convince DaDa to cooperate in the beginning, she said too much money was a burden. Can you imagine Jae-In facing off against DaDa and DaDa's mother combined affection, he would not stand a chance. Game over man!

I think Dada's mother took the sponsorship as the lesser of two evils. Since she trusts Dada to take care and protect herself, a business relationship with 2 months to go is far less problematic than a genuine relationship.

Here's the maaaain thing that I like about this drama: they're dating the way real adults do. They go places together, hold hands and don't overly fuss about it (heart-fluttering moment, yes, but it's not THE show stopper); they vocally worry about sex (should we? Should we not? When? At all?) and have non-aeygo conversations, like normal people in their 20s and 30s.

It's so natural !!

I looooove it !

Thanks @HappilyEverAfter.

This show is still a gem, keeping all the best OTP scenes and even adding nice new ones. I didn't see the line in this version of the show that the 1% was the percentage chance it would ever work out between the couple, but Jae In and Da Hyun have turned that 1% into a 90% likelihood of being in love at the halfway mark of their contract.

I note that at first Da Hyun tells Hyun Jin it's a relief that Jae In is so busy.... but one episode later she moans: Why is he so busy all the time.

The first time he asks for a kiss, he gets her cheek... the second time she does give him a peck and this time she reciprocates with a smile.

And some of us were talking about the trust that's been building... from utter distrust to openly trusting, and on Da Hyun's side from saying no to skinship to admitting being tempted by it and being drunk while alone with the guy... Da Hyun has come a long way. Fortunately Jae In is quite the gentleman.

I know more troublesome times are supposed to lie ahead in this point of the show, but seeing how they bring our OTP together rather than keeps them apart is the life and breath of this show, and I so look forward to them! :)

Rest assured that among the millions of people around the world who enjoy watching k-dramas, there are lots of men. Fidel Castro's son, Alex, said he is a fan. I watched a show about the making of the k-pop group WINNER, and when the members (who are young, "cool" guys) were in a room that they thought was free of cameras watching them, they eagerly watched a k-drama together. There are some men who post on Dramabeans, and I'm sure there are lots more who lurk. We've also had male recappers in the past.

If you really enjoyed this episode, I'm guessing that means that you're a guy with a romantic heart-- and that's a wonderful thing!

this episode was soooo cute and lovely! I am glad JaeIn had gotten gentler and wow, HSJ's eyes when he looks at Dada!

My favorite part would be the simple things like the handholding (that Dada obviously enjoys) while walking around the neighborhood and the way JaeIn gets Dada to rest on his shoulders while talking about the rain.

I am dreading the angst that's sure to come but am enjoying the happy moments while I can.

Correct me if I'm wrong but when Jae In said in a previous episode that he likes Dada because she's plain - wasnt it considered a confession also? Of course Dada's confession was clear as day so Im hoping Jae In lets her know what he feels too.

While Dada doesn't want to marry right away, she doesn't date casually either. She has old fashion values. Her ideal romantic partner is a good man who will become her husband. Considering stark facts, Jae In doesn't meet her conception of a potential husband. He is too rich (which her family associates with problems of greed and conflicts over wealth), a workaholic focused on money making, has contentious family relationships and makes the first impression of being a aggressively rude jerk. Only after spending time with him has she realized his good characteristics and sees a fuller picture. She is pragmatic though and I think, despite having feelings for him, she doesn't see a future for them beyond the contract.
Jae In will have to change her mind!

It's true in the real world and happens in dramas. Just recently in Drinking Solo, Jin Woong and Jin Yi slept together while she was clearly drunk. Although that incident led them to start a relationship, I was far from thrilled. Show was vague as to whether Jin Yi was too drunk and incapacitated. Jin Woong did let on that she was "aggressive" which I presume she was the one who pulled him into bed. Still, where do you draw the line?

So indeed, this drama deserves praise for making the statement.

I have a question about Jae-In's mom. I read the explanations in the comments of Episode 7's recap, but I am still wondering the following:

Is it possible that, Jae-In's father was married to the woman that is now Jae-In's adopted mom?
Could dad have married her, had a son, then had an affair with Jae-In's mom?
Then, dad was left with his mistress and was disowned, and when he died, grandpa arranged for Jae-In, the second illegitimate son to be adopted by the first wife.

Is that possible? Tae-ah's mom would still be the dad's sister, so would her statements make sense if this is the scenario? Just wondering.

here's my take on the family tree
Grandpa has 3 children,
Jae In's dad (1st)
Jae In's adopted mother (2nd)
Tae-ha's mum (3rd)

So something happens with 1st child --Jae In's dad-- marriage that makes grandpa disowned him and didn't include his name in the inheritance,
probably the same case with Jae In, want to make a name for himself than with family relation. But he passed away early and his mum remarriage with the painter guy.
Then the 2nd child --JI adopted mother-- lost her child, and Jae In's mum brings him to the 2nd child/the funeral scene,
then Lee Family/grandpa adopted Jae In under his auntie's name,
that makes him the legal heir and the eldest grandson of Lee's family.

Then Tae Ha didn't have the name Lee because the family name usually based on the father,

I hope this is easy to understand

It's actually a lot less complicated (once you get behind it which also took me forever lol)

Grandpa has/had 3 children (two sons, one daughter).
1. Jae-in's dad who got disowned coz he married a woman (Jae-in's biological mother) Grandpa didn't approve of.
2. Another son (Jae-in's uncle) who's married to Jae-in's adoptive mother (which actually makes her Jae-in's aunt), they had a son who died.
3. Tae-ha's mom.

Is it clearer now? ?

I thought Jae In's biological dad abandoned his family for another woman and was disinherited by his father. The translated subtitle was ambiguous so maybe I'm just coloring in the outline.
His mother remarried a Canadian (?) and left the country. She probably couldn't have retained custody of Jae In if her ex husband's family wouldn't allow it. Children legally belong to the father's family line and are given preference over the female line.

I have all respect to all KDrama and JDrama - if I don't like it I don't discourage anyone watching but I stop watching. We all know that producing and preparing all these drama were tiring and putting effort. I have favorites that I will watch again and again.

I've watched the 2003 version more than 5 times, although its long you will love it - the issue I had were too many story told at once - and the same screenwriter - HyunGooWon change the script to focusing the first half episodes how did the lovestory begin and began stable and showing only snippet of future challenges (1) DaHyun's first crush started noticing her (2) Cousin and counsin's family (3) family's reluctance to have a super rich or really poor preference (4) JaeIn's former arranged failed fiancee (5) Ji-su fans club and (6) the very contract agreement they signed - they planned no to fall in love.

I'm excited how HWG - will change the script to make powerful closing that could make the people watch again and again the show. They may have low ratings, low marketing distribution but read all the reviews - awesome leads chemistry and lines :)

From what I gather the writer Hyun Go Woon wrote the novel and screenplays for the original 2003 drama and now this. I guess it's his baby, so as to speak and I think his dedication certainly pays off.

My guess is that he was exerting self-control as a real gentleman. He knew he had an opportunity to be intimate with Da Hyun, and that his chance might not come again. Still he refused to take advantage of her. Of course in a real and better sense, by not taking advantage of her, he has less regrets, since she will trust him and respect him more, for protecting her even from himself.

When he told DH that he's definitely the one who's not going to regret it, we know he's just teasing her but he's a gentleman who respects DHs wishes so he's not gonna take advantage of her. I did a mental hooray for JI at that scene. Later on, DH drunkenly confessed that she likes him and JI knew that there's not only mutual attraction between them but also genuine feelings for each other. So now, JI feels that he'll be the one regretting sleeping with DH at this point in their relationship because it might change something or worse destroy it. In the past, JI equated dating women with just sleeping with them then walking away from them. Lawyer Park and Employee Kang said as much. DH may be vocal about being tempted to sleep with JI but she's not someone who'll have meaningless sex. She may be aware that JI is fond of her but JI hasn't told her the depth of what he feels yet.

I intended to watch this show for fluffy moments to distract my self from depressing episodes of certain drama (yes, I'm looking at you, Moon Lovers!).
..and now I'm addicted! I remember complaining why many dramas only give little screen time to their lead OTPs, and now I'm given (almost) full episodes of sweetness of this lovely OTP. I'm so spoilt and I'm wanting for moreeee. This drama makes me happy everytime Jae In& Dada share their moments together. Every skinship they make is effortless, done so naturally. My heart flutters so much seeing the way Jae In looks at DaDa.

Considering this show airs on Dramax, 1% of rating is pretty decent. I hope the rating will continue to rise..

If I am repeating myself, please forgive me :)

Ha Suk Jin is such a good kisser! I find his kissing very natural. I have watched enough kdramas' BTS to know that actors look out for angles, positioning of their hands etc etc in a kiss scene filming. One of the things that grate on my nerves recently is how actors 'emphasize' their defined jawlines when they swoop in for the kiss. I know that fans love it but I don't. Another issue is how some actors 'overdo' their kiss. In hope of giving viewers something more than a choding kiss, not a few dramas have the actor sucking the actress' lips as if he would devour her. I don't find it sexy or hot, in fact quite the opposite.

When HSJ kiss, it looked very real and not mucking up for the camera. Instead of jawline, I have a great view of his lips' movement. Neither does he suck in his co-star's lips like a vacuum cleaner.

Moaaaaaaar pleeeeeaassseee!

Yes, you've got it about right. Grandpa had 2 sons and a daughter.

Jae In's father was the younger brother.

The older brother got married, died, had a son who died and his widow decided to adopt Jae In as her own. He then became the son of the 'eldest' son of the Lee Family by adoption. IE gets the greatest position and prestige in the family. From his mother's side, he also is a grandson of a conglomerate or some other Group.

But he does not want to merely inherit from his Grandfather(s), so he appears to be rebelling and doing his own business by running the hotel.

Grandpa's daughter is the mother of Tae Ha.

When I first started watching this drama, I didn't think I would stick with it. I thought the setup was so obvious and simple that there would be no surprises. The real surprise has been the chemistry between the two leads, and the delicacy with which they play their roles. Nothing is overblown, nothing seems trite; it's simple, but not simplistic. This drama started with a flicker which has grown into a slow burn. I can't wait for these two to really catch fire!

LOL! +1000

I agree and want moar, lots moar too!!! This kind of show could go on for like 100 episodes and I'd watch every single one. :D

It's Wednesday over here ... don't know how to stream the show though as it's on DramaX. But at least that means it will be aired soon and subbed tomorrow!!!

Do you know what days the episode are aired? I thought it was Sunday Monday, but was sadly sadly mistaken. ? I can't find the information anywhere, and I keep wondering if I missed something.

@Rigby - I, 100% agree with everything you said (all 8 things you liked and listed about this drama). ;-) And yes, it's too short, indeed (reminds me of the short web series: Noble, My Love with 15 minutes per episode of 20 total episodes. I love this drama more though)...and every end of each episode(s), kept me wanting to see MORE! :-)

Thanks HappilyEverAfter for a great recap. Great episode! I love, love, loved this episode a lot! I've seen it multiple times already while waiting for Episode 9 (and its subs). :-D This is currently the only K-Drama I'm watching because I love and enjoy watching it so much. I'm only focusing on this drama, for now...and won't watch another until I finished it. Loved the unexpected playground kiss scene. Jae-In & Da-Hyun are so cute and adorable. I'm shipping these two more than I've shipped Jung-Seok & Hana in DS, and these two are a much better couple too. I loved all there scenes together (and so glad that they're the main focus on almost every episode on this series) esp. that playground kiss, when Da-Hyun got drunk and confessed to Jae-In that she liked him (as well as kissing him), when she woke up remembering what she was saying/doing when she was drunk, and when she fell and landed on top of Jae-In (and thought he was dead, lol) :-D ...so many great moments in this episode. I just loved everything about this episode (my favorite, thus far). :-) Just saw episode 9 and that was very good too. Can't wait for episode 10! Can't believe there's just 6 more episodes after Thursday's episode (10)!

Love this couple, and if if any third party intervenes they are dead to me. I love that you see them falling in love with each other and it is mutual. Love it.
